Back to our Regularly Scheduled Programming: Nervous in Mecca

Dr Jack Wheeler of To the Point writes the following on the War on Jihadism;

It was certainly no coincidence that on the 4th anniversary of 9/11 last Sunday, front pageNuclear_mecca headlines appeared in the nation’s newspapers entitled Pentagon Revises Nuclear Strike Plan .

 

It was a public shot across the Jihadi Terrorists’ bow, meant to make them and folks in Mecca nervous. You know why, since you read Mad in Mecca in To The Point back in October, 2004, and George Bush and the Sword of Damocles: Why There Hasn’t Been Another 9/11 last January.

 

It’s the clearest sign yet that Mecca is being held as a nuclear hostage.

But Bush Lied............There were no WMDs

Interesting. Never reported in the MSM WMDs being used in Iraq. From the indespensible Counterterrorism blog;

Iraqi Insurgents Claim Chemical Weapon Attacks

At least two different Iraqi insurgent groups thought allied with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi's Al-Qaida faction have claimed responsibility for recent attacks allegedly involving chemical weapons on U.S. and Iraqi forces in the cities of Baghdad and Al-Madain.  On September 13, the Army of the Victorious Sect (rumored to be comprised of ex-Fedayeen Saddam and Iraqi intelligence personnel) claimed responsibility for launching rockets allegedly tipped with chemical agents at the Interior Ministry, Foreign Ministry, and heavily guarded Green Zone in Baghdad.  A day later, the Islamic Army in Iraq (IAI)--a faction that acknowledges occasional joint operations with Abu Musab al-Zarqawi--took credit for an alleged attack on U.S. and Iraqi military forces in the city of Al-Madain with chemical-equipped 120mm Hawn mortar shells.

Sudan to Build Sodom and Gomorrah

Sudan Holds Investment ConferenceSodom
Sudan welcomed plans by the United Arab Emirates to build luxury accommodation in Khartoum -- and hoped the rooms would be filled with foreigners looking for investment opportunities now that decades of war are finally over.

Wow...............imagine that, they are building a luxurious sumptuous den of inequity for "foreigners whose recreation of choice is human trafficking, child slavery, rape and murder.

Now that's an adult theme park for all the progressives and liberals at the Hitchens debate last night eh?

Oh and the war is finally over? Someone tell all the oppressed slaves in Darfur that raped, sold and killed because they are dhimmis, Christians, Moderate Muslim Arabs etc.

Meanwhile, as peace is declared; Darfur rebel group abandons ceasefire and this, Fuel Shortage in Sudan Cripples Food Deliveries.

How is this possible? Isn't oil Sudan an oil producing nation and isn't China it's biggest customer?

Palis Loot Their Future- Now it's Land for War, not Peace

"These greenhouses are for the Palestinian people," he said. "We don't want anyone to touch or harm anything that can be useful for our people." His plea did little good. Palestinian Prime Minister Ahmed Qureia implored Palestinians to leave the structures intact, even as people scavenged through debris elsewhere in the settlement.

Greenhouses_1

American Jewish donors had bought more than 3,000 greenhouses from Israeli settlers in Gaza for $14 million last month, and transferred them to the Palestinian Authority. Former World Bank President James Wolfensohn, who brokered the deal, put up $500,000 of his own cash. More

And for what? For Peace? To destroy? To what end.............only the Devil knows

Palestinians Truly Enjoyed Looting and Desecration

While the Jihad will continue it's "campaign" against Israel,  THE ONLY GOOD THING  THAT WILL  COME OUT OF THIS;

ISRAEL THREATENS EXTREME RESPONSE TO TERRORISM


Make no mistake about it. Read this very carefully, it was what the disengagement was all about.

If Oslo, which I vehemently opposed  (rewarding terror?), was Land for Peace,  Gaza may essentially be LAND FOR WAR.

UPDATE: September 15

The notoriously anti-American, anti-semetic and grossly inaccurate depcted the looting as follows; The BBC reports:

the Israeli pullout is proof of one thing - that the militants are the best hope of getting a state, that violence succeeds where politics fails.

And the future here will not be written without the involvement of the gunmen.

 

After 38 years of occupation, Palestinians were taking what they could from the wreckage of the settlements. A Palestinian colleague looked on, without surprise.

"We just got our land back," he said, "What else can anyone expect?"

But a well-dressed passer-by beseeched us - in perfect English - to stop filming.

Palestinians can still see the limits of their freedom.

It stops at the glittering edge of the Mediterranean Sea

Is what happened in New Orleans the wave of the future in America as well as in such far-away places as Darfur and Iraq -- where genocide is not only feasible but is actually happening?

Reduced to Ashes.......Gaza

Scan0006_3
I defy anyone to look at this picture with a cool objective eye and not say unequivocally who the enemy is.

Reduced to Ashes: Palestinians wave flags as they burn the synagogue in Gaza yesterday. Thousands of triumphant Palestinians poured into the abandoned Jewish settlements setting buildings of fit, ripping out window frames, and shooting in the air.
New York Sun

Muhammad al-Najar, 21, a student from Khan Yunis, said he and his companions had walked nearly six miles to get to Neve Dekalim. He said they had "seen places we've never seen before ..." Asked what surprised him the most, he said: "The clean streets and all the trees."
New York Times

UPDATE:

Mere hours after Israel completed its historic withdrawal from Gaza on Sunday (Sept. 11), Palestinian mobs descended on former Jewish settlements, desecrating their synagogues by burning them to the ground and looting anything left.

While observers the world over were saddened and outraged, some media outlets tried to justify the sacrilege, or even blame it on Israel:

●  The BBC TV report justified the arson mobs in this manner:

Palestinians came streaming to the settlements that caused them so much pain, to sightsee and to loot. Israel stole thirty-eight years from them; today, many were ready to take back anything they could.

This is a clear example of BBC bias ― the reporter states as 'fact' that Palestinians in Gaza had their lives somehow 'stolen' by Israeli since 1967, a claim the BBC uses to rationalize the Palestinian mob violence.

Comments to BBC News: click here

A Knight Ridder story, euphemistically entitled 'Palestinians besiege buildings hours after Israelis leave Gaza', included this 'explanatory' quote at the top of the article:

"I want to destroy everything here as they did the Al Aqsa mosque," said Mahmoud Malahi... It's a symbol of occupation. Destroying it is a symbol of Islam."

Israel is well-known to protect Muslim places of worship under its control. The very site mentioned ― the Al Aqsa mosque is an outstanding example of this policy, for it has never been touched by Israel, and remains in perfect shape and in active use atop the Temple Mount [view picture]. In contradistinction to the status of Jerusalem under Muslim rule, Israel guarantees freedom of religion and makes holy places accessible to peoples of all faiths.

Why did the Knight Ridder reporter and editor allow this libelous statement to appear unchallenged?

The Philadelphia Inquirer printed the story, but deleted the reference to the Al Aqsa mosque.

If your local paper is a Knight Ridder affiliate, check to ensure the erroneous statement did not appear; if it did, write a letter to the editor, noting the error and the larger issue of Israeli vs. Palestinian treatment of other faiths' holy places.

The Scotsman effectively blamed Israel for the desecrations before they even occurred:

Any hopes of a better and more peaceful era for the region were dampened by sharp disputes between Israel and the Palestinians over control of border crossings, and the Israeli cabinet's decision to leave intact 19 buildings that housed synagogues in the vacated settlements.

A decision to leave synagogues in place 'dampened any hopes for a more peaceful era'? One would think the desecrations did that, not the (hopeful) act of leaving the synagogues intact.

WE LOVE PEACE BUT PEACE ON OUR TERMS................SLITTING THE THROATS OF THE INFIDELS

So said an American speaking member of Al Qaeda on a just released video and

Hamas Celebrates Victory of the Bomb
"We are celebrating the victory of the bomb," declares a Hamas poster with a picture of an armed masked man superimposed to look as if he is crushing settler homes and Israeli soldiers with his feet. "The first Palestinian victory, the first Israeli defeat," says another. "It's the first time the resistance has won. Gaza is the beginning of the road to the liberation of Jerusalem," said Diyab Hassan Ouda.

So this is how  Hamas, supported by the largest state sponsor of terrorism, Iran (THE ENEMY) is choosing to interpret the lockdown of the state of Israel. That is their choice.

Iran warns of 'consequences' if referred to U.N. Security Council 
Iran warned Sunday that there will be "certain consequences" if it is referred to the U.N. Security Council for possible sanctions over its nuclear activities. The country also said it has plans to build two more nuclear power plants.

I choose to go down for America, for the Bush Doctrine. I'll be damned if I am going to wait for their next attack. BA DAH BING BA DAH BOOM. I say we take them out. Iran is on the move and they intend to take Iraq.

The left may want to play fast and loose with America, my kids and me but they lost the election. They have done great harm to this country.........and this is the Really Big Sho . And if anyone goes nuclear it has to be us...........IT HAS TO BE US.

"Islamic Mafia" Killing Christians

They will not be satisfied until every Christian, every Jew, every Dhimmi is dead. And in America they have the Fifth Column aiding and abetting

"Islamic Mafia" Accused of Persecuting Holy Land Christians - Harry de Quetteville
Christians in the Holy Land have handed a dossier detailing incidents of violence and intimidation by Muslim extremists to church leaders in Jerusalem, one of whom said it was time for Christians to "raise our voices" against the sectarian violence. The dossier includes 93 alleged incidents of abuse by an "Islamic fundamentalist mafia" against Palestinian Christians, who accused the PA of doing nothing to stop the attacks. The dossier also includes a list of 140 cases of apparent land theft, in which Christians in the West Bank were allegedly forced off their land by gangs backed by corrupt judicial officials.
    A spokesman for the Apostolic Delegate, the Pope's envoy to Jerusalem, said nothing had been done to tackle the problem despite repeated appeals to the PA to rein in Muslim gangs. The dossier currently in church hands details far worse allegations of violence, notably the torture and murder of two Christian girls in 2003. (Telegraph-UK)

  • Israel Charges Palestinian with Al-Qaeda Link
    In an indictment filed at Judea Military Court Thursday, IDF prosecutors charged Palestinian Mahmoud Waridat, 26, with undergoing training at an al-Qaeda camp in Afghanistan.

  • UPDATE 9/9 6:20 pm


    Christians living in the Palestinian Authority areas are beginning to raise their voices to alert the world to the years of intimidation, violence and land theft that have been perpetrated against them by Palestinian Muslims.  As a September 9 Daily Telegraph article states, the "self-imposed silence now appears to be crumbling."

     
    ACTION ITEMS
     
    Too many churches (e.g. the Presbyterian Church USA, United Church of Christ, Anglican Church, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) have leveled harsh and distorted denunciations of  Israel, moving toward divestment action and/or condemning construction of the security fence, while at the same time ignoring the very real and serious problem of violence and harrassment directed against Palestinian Christians by Palestinian Muslims. 
     
    * Urge church leaders and the editors of Christian media to publicize and condemn the persecution of Palestinian Christians by Palestinian Muslims. Contact info for Christian publications and leaders is below.  Keep in mind that  listed is a wide variety of Christian publications and organizations, some that have been unfairly hostile to Israel, and others that have been very supportive and fair to Israel, so please be conscious of this if you write only one letter to all the church publications. 
    * Thank the Daily Telegraph for its informative article.  Encourage them to continue to report on this topic.  dtletters@telegraph.co.uk

    Deadly pharmaceuticals sold in Tehran

    Dr. Akbari, the Director of the Center for Information said that the pharmaceutical drug dealers in the Nasser-Khosrow section of Tehran are distributors of spoiled abortion/miscarriage pills. The pills are mainly imported from India and need to be refrigerated in temperatures between 2 to 5 degrees centigrade. Dr. Akbari added that the pharmaceutics contrabandists who hide their goods in phone booths or in locked cases on the backs of motorcycles ask the buyer to wait; they pretend to go to a nearby refrigerator to get them. The pills however, stored and sold under these conditions have lead to haemorrhaging, cervical and uterus infections, sterilization and sometimes death.

    The standard abortion pills are only issued for distribution through one main source which is the 13 Aban Pharmacy in Tehran; however, in order to fill the prescription, an authorization from the Medical Examiners' office and a letter from an obstetrician-gynaecologist is required.

    At present obtaining the courts' permission, which is always a complicated and exasperating task, makes the waiting period entirely too long and forces people to resort to buying the pill from the street dealers. It is either that or having an unwanted child that creates more rearing and financial hardship under the Islamic regime.

    Fining women for improper veiling

    Chador6dec185_jpg_2Iran Daily, one of the regime's newspapers reported of a proposal by Shahriar Rashidi, a member of the Commission on Education and Research of the Mullahs' Parliament who suggested: "In order to control women's attire, we must fine women who are charged with improper veiling. Any woman who does not properly cover herself must pay a cash fine so that they learn to obey the rules and customs."

    Rashidi also said: "Women who are improperly dressed in public and people who behave badly while in their automobiles, harm public decency and will be severely fined by Motor Vehicle agents."

    Disciplinary forces harass high school girls

    Iran Daily, one of the regime's multitude of media outlets, in it's Tuesday issue confessed that the greater corruption and criminality of the regime in fact emanates from none other than the disciplinary forces of the regime themselves; a large number of the disciplinary forces' agents have been recognized and exposed for ganging up and swarming around girls' schools during schools opening and closing hours.

    This newspaper, in an article entitled "Our Neighborhoods' police," quotes a resident of Tehran who describes: "On Shaheed Lavasani Street, right next to the Metro entrance, there is a girls' high school. We have witnessed that during the opening and closing hours of the school, large groups of young, libidinous and salacious criminals who are in fact known to be members of the disciplinary forces and are meant to be supposedly protecting the neighborhood, gather; they harass, disgrace and insult the high school girls who just want to be left in peace...God forbid that this is supposed to be the so-called 'hard-working' police of this Islamic nation."

    Khamnei's newspaper berates and persecutes Iranian women and girls

    The regime's ruling newspaper, belonging to Mullah Khamnei, blamed Iranian women and girls, in an article entitled "The main reason for social corruption and ills," and called upon the disciplinary forces to exert all the necessary force in confronting such blight.

    This newspaper wrote: "Families are not only troubled by hoodlums and misfits. The actions of these hoodlums and misfits are as a result of other people's influences upon which the commander of the disciplinary forces did not expound. The main problem of our society today stems from sloppy women and girls whose veiling problems are a constant concern and of course there's the prostitutes who are the source of trouble on the streets. Those hoodlums and misfits who harass women and girls would never think of bothering proper and sophisticated women who are veiled according to the Islamic rules and maintain decent and respectable standards. Women who are not properly veiled and dress in a common and garish way are looking to be harassed and attacked. Therefore these women and girls are the real reason for the actions of these hoodlums to begin with."

    MUSLIM KILLING CHRISTIANS! Dont just stand there!

    Killing Christians, "honor murders", fffffffffffffffolks whats it going to take? Where is the goddamn media?

    A Muslim mob converged on the Palestinian Christian town of Taibeh, burning and looting 13 homes owned by relatives of a man suspected of having an affair and impregnating a 30 year old Muslim woman who worked for him. Prior to the mob attack, in yet another suspected "honor killing," the pregnant woman, Hiyam Ajaj, was found dead from poison.
     
    Lara Sukhtian, of the Associated Press (AP), has written a compelling article about the incident that included context regarding Muslim-Christian tensions, as well as the disturbing practice of "honor killing" among both Muslim and Christian Arabs.  While I understand that coverage of the massive Hurricane Katrina relief effort has appropriately bumped many other news items, this compelling story is of particular interest to Christians and women's rights advocates, as well as the general public.
     
    In contrast to the dwindling population of Christians in the PA territories -- as well as surrounding  Muslim countries -- Israel's Christian population is vibrant and growing.

    The Munich Massacre

    By Mitchell Bard


    It was 4:30 in the morning on Sept. 5, 1972, when five Arab terrorists wearing track sweat suitsMunich_1972 climbed the six-foot six-inch fence surrounding the Olympic Village. Although they were seen by several people, no one thought anything was unusual since athletes routinely hopped the fence; moreover, the terrorists' weapons were hidden in athletic bags. These five were met by three more men who are presumed to have obtained credentials to enter the village.

    Just before 5, the Arabs knocked on the door of Israeli wrestling coach Moshe Weinberg. When Weinberg opened the door he realized something was wrong and shouted a warning to his comrades. He and weightlifter Joseph Romano attempted to block the door while other Israelis escaped, but they were killed by the terrorists. The Arabs then succeeded in rounding up nine Israelis to hold as hostages.

    At 9:30, the terrorists announced that they were Palestinians and demanded that Israel release 200 Arab prisoners and that the terrorists be given safe passage out of Germany.

    After hours of tense negotiations, the Palestinians, who it was later learned belonged to a PLO faction called Black September, agreed to a plan whereby they were to be taken by helicopter to the NATO air base at Firstenfeldbruck where they would be given an airplane to fly them and their hostages to Cairo. The Israelis were then taken by bus to the helicopters and flown to the airfield. In the course of the transfer, the Germans discovered that there were eight terrorists instead of the five they expected and realized that they had not assigned enough marksmen to carry out the plan to kill the terrorists at the airport.

    After the helicopters landed at the air base around 10:30 p.m., the German sharpshooters Munich_massacre_1attempted to kill the terrorists and a bloody firefight ensued. At 11, the media was mistakenly informed that the hostages had been saved and the news was announced to a relieved Israeli public. Almost an hour later, however, new fighting broke out and one of the helicopters holding the Israelis was blown up by a terrorist grenade. The remaining hostages in the second helicopter were shot to death by one of the surviving terrorists.

    At 3 a.m., a drawn and teary-eyed Jim McKay, who had been reporting the drama throughout the day as part of ABC's Olympic coverage, announced: "They're all gone."

    Five of the terrorists were killed along with one policeman, and three were captured. A little over a month later, on Oct. 29, a Lufthansa jet was hijacked by terrorists demanding that the Munich killers be released.

    The Germans capitulated and the terrorists were let go, but an Israeli assassination squad was assigned to track them down along with those responsible for planning the massacre. According to George Jonas in Vengeance: The True Story of an Israeli Counter-Terrorist Team, eight of the 11 men targeted for death were killed. Of the remaining three, one died of natural causes and the other two were assassinated, but it is not known for sure if they were killed by Israeli agents.

    Meanwhile, the mastermind of the massacre remains at large. In fact, in 1999, Abu Daoud admitted his role in his autobiography, Memoirs of a Palestinian Terrorist. He claims his commandos never intended to harm the athletes and blamed their deaths on the German police and the stubbornness of then-Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir (JTA, May 4, 1999).

    The massacre of 11 Israeli athletes was not considered sufficiently serious to merit canceling or postponing the Olympics. "Incredibly, they're going on with it," Jim Murray of the Los Angeles Times wrote at the time. "It's almost like having a dance at Dachau."

    America’s attempts to appease “Muslim opinion” are depraved and suicidal.

    By Alex Epstein

    To listen to most of our foreign-policy commentators, the biggest problem facing America today--four years after Sept. 11th--is the fact that many Muslims are mad at us.

    Flag“Whatever one's views on the [Iraq] war,” writes a New York Times columnist, “thoughtful Americans need to consider . . . the bitter anger that it has provoked among Muslims around the world.” In response to Abu Ghraib, Ted Kennedy lamented, “We have become the most hated nation in the world, as a result of this disastrous policy in the prisons.” Muslim anger over America’s support of Israel, we are told, is a major cause of anti-American terrorism.

    All of this evades one blatant truth: the hatred being heaped on America is irrational and undeserved. Consider the issue of treatment of POWs. Many Muslims are up in arms about the treatment of prisoners of war in Iraq and at Guantanamo--many of whom were captured on battlefields trying to kill Americans. Yet these same Muslims are silent about the summary convictions and torture--real torture, with electric drills and vats of acid--that are official policy and daily practice throughout the Middle East.

    Or consider “Muslim opinion” over the U,S, handling of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, in which the United States is accused of not being “hard enough” on Israel--a free nation with laws that protect all citizens, Jew and Arab alike--for Israel’s supposed mistreatment of Palestinians. Yet “Muslim opinion” reveres the Palestinian Authority, a brutal dictatorship that deprives Palestinians of every basic freedom, keeps them in unspeakable poverty, and routinely tortures and executes peaceful dissenters.

    So-called Muslim opinion is not the unanimous and just consensus that its seekers pretend. It is the irrational and unjust opinion of the world's worst Muslims: Islamists and their legions of “moderate” supporters and sympathizers. These people oppose us not because of any legitimate grievances against America, but because they are steeped in a fundamentalist interpretation of their religion--one that views America's freedom, prosperity, and pursuit of worldly pleasures as the height of depravity. They do not seek respect for the rights of the individual (Muslim or non-Muslim), they seek a world in which the rights of all are sacrificed to the dictates of Islam.

    The proper response to Islamists and their supporters is to identify them as our ideological and political enemies--and dispense justice accordingly. In the case of our militant enemies, we must kill or demoralize them--especially those regimes that support terrorism and fuel the Islamist movement; as for the rest, we must politically ignore them and intellectually discredit them, while proudly arguing for the superiority of Americanism. Such a policy would make us safe, expose Islamic anti-Americanism as irrational and immoral, and embolden the better Muslims to support our ideals and emulate our ways.

    Every attempt to appease "Muslim opinion" preserves, promotes, and emboldens our enemies. Every concession to angry Muslim mobs gives hope to the Islamist cause. Every day we allow terrorist regimes to exist gives their minions time to execute the next Sept. 11. America needs honest leadership with the courage to identify and defeat our enemies--“Muslim opinion” be damned.

    This Week in IRAN vs. This Week in ISRAEL

    Iran_female_militia
    IRAN

    Regime's disciplinary forces set to confront celebrants

    IRNA, the regime's news agency reports that the disciplinary forces of the regime's central intelligence issued a statement today, stating that: "As of Monday, these forces will meet very forcefully with wedding parties or any sort of celebration, that is disturbing and impinging on society's order and calm." The bulletin also read: "Certain people in their celebrations, immorally and degenerately block traffic (wedding processions) and disturb the peace of our compatriots; these people will be strongly dealt with.”

    Khamnei: "These 'goods' will have to remain in their wrapping"

    Mullah Khamnei specified, in a speech broadcast by ILNA, one of the regime's many media outlets, that men are superior to women. While referring to women as "goods" or "commodities", he stated: "Women's hijab must be much more severe than those of men's. Why? Because nature and women’s softness was at the core of 'creation' and IF we do not want society to lead to corruption and degenerate, we must keep these "goods" in their wrapping."

    Khamnei continued: "Women are inadequate and excitable creatures; not that women have no rights but women are problematic. They go through child-birth, breast-feeding and then there's their delicate physique and feeble spirits; they cannot enter into every arena because they simply are not capable of dealing with conflict."

    The Islamic regime's agents involved in drug smuggling

    ILNA reports that one of the representatives of the Social Commission of the Islamic Assembly has confessed that dozens of people, who are directly related to the regime, are caught everyday on charges of drug smuggling. Said representative stated that under the circumstances and without a shadow of a doubt, due to the rampancy of the "deals," it is impossible to continue such activities had the perpetrators not had the blessing of the regime's authorities.

    Mohammad Abbasspour said that based on research, 20 to 30 people who are regime insiders, are identified on a daily basis for importing and distribution inside the country. He added that the disciplinary forces, prison affairs and quarantine type jobs, as well as the Narcotics trafficking squad, are, for example, areas that can be influenced and infiltrated and it is mainly within those groups where the traffickers are generally identified.

    Abbasspour stated that: "the addiction rate of prisoners and huge drug racket inside prisons is not in any shape or form conducted either by the prisoners themselves or their families (!), therefore it has become clear that the culprits are none other than the influential people within the regime who are key, here. For instance, how can passangers importing psychotropic drugs from The Netherlands or Denmark, get away with it, without the direct involvement of 'authorities' who are influential in the management of airline companies?"

    60% of 30 to 49 year olds in Iran live in total poverty

    The World Bank announced in a report that under the rule of the Mullahs, 60% of Iranians between the ages of 30 and 49 live in total poverty. Based on this report, in Iran, more than 1.3 million people earn less than $1 a day.

    Pharmaceutics mafia inside the regime's Ministry of Health

    The Executive Director of the Islamic regime’s society for the protection of Kidney disease patients said that a pharmaceutics drug mafia ring has been formed within the regime's Ministry of Health; these are people who are in the higher management and executive divisions of the Ministry who are conspiring with elements outside the Ministry.

    Mustafa Qassemi said: "Unfortunately at present the pharmaceutical drugs that are being imported are generally and often, the lowest of quality and have even been discarded by the countries producing these."

    The abundant oil revenues of the corrupt circles of the Regime

    Transparency International (http://www.transparency.org/) has warned oil-exporting countries that the abundance of their last two years of oil revenues can lead to economic corruption in their respective countries. This organization also declared that the increase in said revenues could make it difficult to transparently determine the overheads and income from oil and energy industries of such countries.

    Based on this report, while the abundant oil revenues has lead to uncontrollable economic corruption, the unprecedented worldwide increase in the price of crude oil in the recent months will have also undoubtedly increased the already rampant malfeasance and embezzlement. This report also states that the steady daily price increase of crude oil in the world market has raised the level of excess in greedy and avaricious characters (i.e. The Mullahs) with access to such gains.

    Missiles launched from Southern Lebanon into Israel were made by the Islamic Republic of Iran

    Based on reports from news sources in Lebanon, the missiles that were launched on Friday (Aug. 26th) from Southern Lebanon’s Hezbollah terrorist factions into Israel, were the FAJR 3 rockets that are built specifically by the Islamic Republic of Iran. These 240-millimeter caliber missiles that are 5 meters in length and weigh 400 kilograms covers a 43-kilometer range. Launched from the Lebanese border, they can easily reach the city of Haifa in Northern Israel.

    This Hezbollah terrorist splinter group, which is entirely under the command of the Islamic Republic of Iran, is in possession of 13000 long-range rockets and missiles.

    Islamic school furor in Lodi
    Sacramento Bee

    Supporters of the center envision a small elementary school that embraces traditional Islamic values, a gathering place for Muslim women who are otherwise sequestered at home, a playground, a library and a site for worship.

    There's a huge need for it," said Pamela Parvez, a Lodi mother of seven who makes an 80-mile round-trip drive each weekday to ferry her fourth-grader to an Islamic school in Sacramento.

    But federal attorneys and agents, mounting a counterterrorism offensive in Lodi, saw a darker future for the Farooqia Islamic Center. They have alleged in court that the facility's secret mission may have been to recruit and groom American Muslims for the jihad - the holy war against enemies of Islam.

    In testimony at an immigration court hearing Aug. 9, FBI agent Gary Schaaf compared the Lodi school to militant madrassahs - Muslim seminaries - in Pakistan: "Our investigation has come across information that the (planned Lodi) madrassah is part of a long-term plan ... during which students would be spotted and assessed and maybe eventually be ready to commit acts of violence in the U.S."

    Supporters of the Farooqia Islamic Center emphatically deny any connection with terrorism.

    "The intent was for the school to teach kindergarten through fourth grade," said Taj Khan, a leader in Lodi's large Pakistani community and member of the center's board of directors.
    The following is found in their text and lessons;

    Jews and Christians - Cursed by Allah and Turned into Apes and Pigs- a textbook explains why Jews and Christians were cursed by Allah and turned into apes and pigs. Quoting Surat Al-Maida, verse 60, the lesson explains that Jews and Christians have sinned by accepting polytheism and therefore incurred Allah's wrath. To punish them, Allah has turned them into apes and pigs.
    1. "It is Allah's wisdom that the struggle between Muslims and Jews shall continue until the Day of Judgment."
    2. "The Hadith brings forth the glad tidings about the ultimate victory, with Allah's help, of Muslims over Jews."
    3. "The Jews and the Christians are the enemies of the believers. They will not be favorably disposed toward Muslims and it is necessary to be cautious (in dealing with them)."

    "It was to be an independent charter school licensed by the state. How could it be a terrorist school? A 5-year-old terrorist? It is mind-boggling. God help the FBI if they think that right under the noses of the community such a thing could be established."

    The FBI will not elaborate on its allegations, saying the investigation continues.

    The Radical Islamic Indoctrination in US Prisons

    Speaking to the fifth column, this is a grossly underreported story with the gravest of implications. the gravest
    Daveed Gartenstein-Ross has a must read post at The Counterterrorism Blog, the first multi-expert blog dedicated solely to counterterrorism issues, serving as a gateway to the community for policymakers and serious researchers. Designed to provide realtime information about terrorism cases and policy developments.

    The investigation of a recent alleged terrorism plot that law enforcement officials say was hatched in a California prison has raised fears about radical Islamic indoctrination in the country's prison system.  Law enforcement officials told ABC News that former Oakland gang member Peter Martinez and cellmate Kevin James, both held in the New Folsom State Prison, organized a plot to attack military and Jewish targets in the Los Angeles area this coming September 11.  The plot was discovered when former Folsom Prison inmate Levar Washington (who converted to Islam while in prison) and an accomplice were arrested for a string of gas station robberies.

    The San Diego Union Tribune explains the concerns that this incident raises about radical Islamic recruiting in the prison system:

    The allegations seem to support comments that FBI Director Robert Mueller made to the Senate Intelligence Committee:  "Prisons continue to be fertile ground for extremists who exploit both a prisoner's conversion to Islam while still in prison, as well as their socio-economic status and placement in the community upon their release."  Fears that Islamic prison groups could foster terrorism have grown since the arrest in 2002 of Jose Padilla, a former Chicago street gang member and former convict who converted to Islam and a few years later allegedly attended an al-Qaeda training camp in Afghanistan.  Padilla is in jail, accused of plotting to create a crude radioactive device, or "dirty bomb."  Similar concerns were raised after a Muslim chaplain for New York's state prison system was dismissed for allegedly using his position to promote Islamic radicalism.  Richard Reid, the British citizen convicted in a failed shoe-bomb attack aboard an American Airlines flight in 2001, reportedly converted to Islam in prison.  At least one of the suspects arrested in the July 21 attempted suicide attacks in London reportedly converted to Islam while behind bars.

    Thus, I have outlined, at some length, the kind of Islamic literature that has already made its way into the prison system.  The current California investigation makes clear that learning more about the process of radical indoctrination in the prisons is imperative;

    As if this advocacy of jihad were not enough, many editions of this translation that reached the prisons contained an appendix entitled "The Call to Jihad (Holy Fighting in Allah's Cause) in the Qur'an," by Sheikh Abdullah bin Muhammad bin Humaid, Saudi Arabia's former chief justice.  (Download NQ_945.pdf)  That essay is, quite simply, an exhortation to violence.  It outlines bin Humaid's case that jihad is obligatory against all non-Muslims.  Bin Humaid explains:  "Allah revealed . . . the order to discard (all) the obligations (covenants, etc.) and commanded the Muslims to fight against all the Mushrikun as well as against the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) if they do not embrace Islam, till they pay the Jizyah (a tax levied on the non-Muslims who do not embrace Islam and are under the protection of an Islamic government) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued."  (Download NQ_947-8.pdf)  His essay includes an appeal for the reader to volunteer for jihad:  "Jihad is a great deed indeed and there is no deed whose reward or blessing is as that of it, and for this reason, it is the best thing that one can volunteer for. . . .  [I]t (Jihad) shows one's patience, one's devotion to Islam, one's remembrance to Allah and there are other kinds of good deeds which are present in Jihad and are not present in any other act of worship."  (Download NQ_955.pdf)

    But a special dose of hatred is reserved for the Jews.  A parenthetical phrase inserted into Surah 2:99 implies a sinister Jewish conspiracy:  "And indeed We have sent down to you manifest Ayat (these Verses of the Qur'an which inform in detail about the news of the Jews and their secret intentions, etc.) and none disbelieve in them but Fasiqun (those who rebel against Allah's Command)."  (Download NQ_52.pdf)

    In my mind this is more frightening than the wildly exposed "border" issue (as serious as that is). THESE TERRORISTS ARE ALREADY HERE AND LEGALLY. READ IT ALL
    Put this Counterterrorism Blog on your list of Daily Must Reads...............
    I must thank Brigitte Gabriel, American Congress for truth for turning me on to it.

    Why isn't the New York Slime Times or the International Herald Trib All Over this story?

    Billions for Jew killing, crumbs for peace

    What Happened to Fifty Years of Aid Money? - Frederick Forsyth
    I saw Gaza on my first visit to Israel in 1968. It was created in the same year as the UN created Israel: 1948. It was supposed to be a temporary camp for Palestinians displaced by the newGaza2_1 Israeli state. Its inhabitants were supposed to be able to return to new plots of land inside Israel or accept a living space in the lands of their surrounding Arab "brothers." (This was 19 years before the 1967 war.) Alas, the "brothers" did precious little. Gaza had better propaganda value as a festering sore of human misery to be waved before the world. It soon became a sewage-smelling slum.
        But aid did pour in; billions of it, enough to make that tiny plot a mini Garden of Eden, a prosperous, healthy, thriving enclave beside the blue Mediterranean south of Ashkelon. Fifty years later, it was still a sewage-smelling slum, wreathed in chaos. What happened to all the money? Well, the Palestinian leadership embezzled half of it; the rest went on guns, bullets, and explosives. (Daily Express-UK)

    Goodbye Gaza, Hello Hamas

    It's funny (not) but when I was flying down to Florida a couple of days ago, the FOX channel wasn't working on the flight and so  I was forced to watch CNN...........yeah I had to pin my eyelids open to stop from cringing.
    Anyway, it was the day before the Jews were scheduled to disengage from Gaza and all CNN kept talking about, especially that 2nd rate, C list ,numbskull Jack  Caffertywas "why should America help Israel pay for the disengagement and the resettling of the families?" (three generations mind you) torn from their homeland.

    *spit*

    Oh and just for knowing, Bush has agreed to half of what Israel requested.

    UPDATE:  Must give props to the New Zealand Herald for this extremely even handed piece on the UN and media's  prejudice on the Pali/Israeli conflict;

    Two things immediately occurred to me while reading them. The first was the astounding absence of context; the second was that the attacks were coming from representatives of an organisation whose stance on the Israeli-Arab conflict, over decades, has hardly been exemplary.

    Reading the articles, one would be forgiven for thinking Israelis have had nothing better to do than bomb or shoot up Palestinian communities. The implication is that Palestinians have, as a result of their benighted circumstances, had no choice but to take up arms against their oppressors.

    The story is full of holes. Why no reference to the fact that Gaza has been for years been the planning base and launch pad for hundreds of bomb, mortar and other attacks against Israelis?

    And in case we've become hardened to the idea of terrorism, let's remember what it entails: body parts splattered across city streets, infants without limbs, orphaned children maimed for life.

    Why have the writers ignored the fact that, far from distancing itself from attacks by Hamas and Islamic Jihad, the Palestinian Authority (PA) has embraced these groups, failing to honour its commitments to dismantle the terror networks?

    There's also no reference to the fact that establishing bomb factories in the midst of civilian neighbourhoods have long been favoured Palestinian extremist tactics.

    Why, one wonders, did Newman fail to mention that those same traumatised Palestinian children she writes about have been subjected, through PA media outlets, school textbooks and holiday camps, to programmes inciting violence against Jews and lauding the "martyrdom" of suicide bombings.

    Another missing piece: Palestinian leaders have for 10 years been responsible for administering Gaza. During that time, they have squandered millions of dollars in foreign aid - setting up a dozen security agencies, bankrolling propaganda, diverting funds to private bank accounts, buying apartments in Paris.

    Then again, taking a one-sided view of the Israeli-Arab conflict is standard operating procedure for the United Nations.

    amen...................thank you

    The UN.... An Arm of Al Qaeda?

    The slaughtering African civilians, rape, child slavery (where are the feminazis?) and human trafficking continue apace  in the Sudan and the  region of Darfur. So when you read all these  LLL media "news" stories, understand that's what they are - stories (pathetic ones at that);

    U.N.: Sudan Rebel Group Committed to Peace
     
    The head of the United Nations in Sudan said Wednesday that one of the main Darfur rebel factions was dedicated to resuming peace talks even though it had asked to postpone a session slated later this month.

    U.N.: Sudan Rebel Group Committed to Peace
     U.N. Official Says Sudan's Darfur Rebel Group Committed to Peace, Sees Deal by Year's End

    Know it's bullshit. It's the left wing media propping up the the morally bankrupt, criminal, malevolent euphemistically named United Nations as part of its sabotage of the Bush Doctrine (fighting terrorists and freeing oppressed peoples)
    The UN  exists in it's current dhimmi form to serve the islamofascists in its war to destroy Western Civilization hence its obsession with the elimination of Israel - just this week the UN funded Pali/Hamas propaganda against Israel - during the disengagement-which U.S. Ambassador John Bolton protested as "unacceptable" payments. 

    Unsudan_8

    Sudan is a horror. Two ongoing conflicts,  the 22-year-old civil war that has pitted the Muslim government against Christian and animist rebels in the country's southern region and in western Sudan,   the Janjaweed - the word, an Arabic colloquialism, means "a man with a gun on a horse." Janjaweed militiamen are primarily members of nomadic "Arab" tribes who've long been at odds with Darfur's settled "African" farmers, who are darker-skinned.
    Whatever.
    The killing, rape, slavery and human trafficking goes on................the answer?
    It's all part of  the global  War on Radical Islam (aka as the War on terror). We as aBlog nation must eradicate it before it takes hold of Africa, Mexico and Latin America.

    Do not, I repeat, DO NOT TAKE YOUR EYE OFF THE BALL

    I am home on my computer (my secret lover, oy).................yay!

    ok,  let's look at Iran's new cabinet...................this is important.

    The LLL. media wants you to think about other things - like that psychopathic mother Sheehan in Texas. Why does she get so much press? Huh? 1900 fine young delicious America lives sacrificed for our freedom and this "mother" gets full court press? WTF? I don't want to hear...............of course soldiers die. That's what , these brave fine wonderful honorable men and women soldiers do - fight for our freedom. So that the 3,000 innocent American lives lost on 9/11 were not taken in vain.

    The LLL mainstream media think they are still dictating what Americans will think. HELLLOOOOOOOOOO. Why blogosphere then?

    DO NOT TAKE YOUR EYE OFF THE BALL

    Iraq a mistake? HARDLY! The ferocity of the war is proof positive that THIS IS WAR. The attack from Jordan on American and Navel apparatus today is proof positive we are at war.
    Remember after 9/11? How FREAKED we were when the next attack would come. REMEMBER?

    I do. In New York we were soiling our pants. WORD.

    And if you think it's an "accident" that we haven't been hit since YOU ARE IRRATIONAL.  Having been in advertising and marketing in a prior life, you can make polls say whatever you want. Bush's ratings at their lowest? LIE.

    The American people know we can't withdraw from Iraq. An exit strategy?  There is no such thing. We attempting to accomplish something never done before - freeing a people in a region oppressed for centuries. There is no template.

    If we pull our troops or give a timetable all hell breaks loose, just what the left wants. Whose side on they are on? Have they, even for moment, considered the consequences if they are wrong?

    While I don't believe for a second Bush is wrong, what if he were. Whats the damage? FreeingIran_killing2_1_1 people subjugated under the heel of a despot's brutality.

    MEMO TO ANGELINA JOLIE: Wanna really help? Stop the happy horseshit and stop giving money to despotic regimes. Speak out for the African dhimmis being raped and slaughtered. Gving money to Africa is NOT THE ANSWER. It is much tougher than that. It takes a real backbone...................hard to find even harder to act on.

    Back t Iran, the largest state sponsor of terrorism. Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria all back by the Jimmuh Carter supported Islamic Regime. The new cabinet from Jack Wheeler's To the Point (subscribe already!)

    A CABINET OF EVIL
    Ledeen's Lair

    By Michael Ledeen

    Iranian President Ahmadi Nejad has been busy putting together a cabinet for the Islamic republic. While all real power remains firmly in the clammy hands of Supreme Leader Khamenei, it's worth taking a look at some of the new ministers, if only because it tells us two important things:

    (1) The face the regime wishes to show to the world at large, and (2) the policies the regime intends to unleash on the long-suffering Iranian people.

    Let's start with the interior minister, Hojatoll-Islam Mostafa Pour-Mohammadi. He was formerly the number-two man in the ministry of intelligence and security — where he was directly in charge of the foreign section (and thus the sorts of foreign operations now running full bore in Iraq and Afghanistan) — and, even more significantly, the man in charge of those matters in the office of the supreme leader.
    Pour-Mohammadi comes from a sartorially celebrated family; his father and brother are tailors for leading clergy. Indeed, they prepared the tailoring for both bin Laden and Zawahiri in their recent videos, in which their clothing was distinctively Iranian.
    The minister for intelligence and security is Hojjatol-Islam Gholam-Hossein Mohseni Ezhei, from Isfahan, where he acquired a reputation as a particularly vicious and barbaric head of the Islamic tribunals which regularly issued brutal sentences.

    He has been special prosecutor in the intelligence ministry, where he was also in charge of key personnel decisions, and at present he is judge and prosecutor for the special tribunal of the clergy.

    To Mohammed-Hossein Saffar-Harandi of Tehran goes the ironically named ministry of culture and Islamic guidance. In reality, that ministry's key role is to provide cover for external intelligence operations.

    For a decade, Saffar-Harandi was the director of the political bureau of the Revolutionary Guards, in which he holds the rank of brigadier general, and for which he was the commander of southern Iran.

    The foreign minister is Manoucher Mottaki, whose long diplomatic career (he has been ambassador to both Japan and Turkey, and deputy foreign minister) has included the sensitive role as liaison between the foreign ministry and the revolutionary guards. While he was ambassador to Ankara, numerous Iranian dissidents were murdered and others kidnapped.

    And then there is the defense minister, Mostafa Mohammad-Najjar, another brigadier general in the Revolutionary Guards, where he has been since its official formation in 1979. As several commentators have pointed out, he was the commander of the RG forces in Lebanon in 1983, when the Marine barracks were blown up by the Guards and Hezbollah. So we owe him one.

    The mullahs have torn off their conciliatory mask in order to bare their fangs to us, the Europeans, and the Iranian people.

    If we had an Iran strategy worthy of the name, our confused leaders would have pointed out the remarkable interview with the chief nuclear affairs negotiator, Hossein Musavian. It was broadcast on Iranian television August 4th, and made it quite clear that the Iranians deliberately tricked the Europeans into giving the mullahs an extra year to complete a vital part of their nuclear program in Isfahan.

    "Thanks to the negotiations with Europe," he bragged, "we gained another year, in which we completed...Isfahan." This was quite a coup, at least in Musavian's humble opinion:

    "We suspended (the enrichment program) in Isfahan in October 2004, although we were required to do so in October 2003...Today we are in a position of power: (the program) in Isfahan is complete and UF4 and UF6 gases are being produced. We have a stockpile of products, and...we have managed to convert 36 tons of yellow cake into gas and store it..."

    President Chirac? Chancellor Schroeder? Prime Minister Blair? How do you all intend to answer your parliamentary inquiries? You were all gulled by the mullahs (or, to put the darkest light on the matter, willing accomplices).

    Meanwhile, the mullahs are killing us. Time Magazine published a long report from Baghdad on August 16, entitled "Inside Iran's Secret War for Iraq," which lays out chapter and verse of the mullahs' longstanding efforts — often coordinated with Assad's Syria — to drive us out of Iraq.

    It is the first time I've seen a major publication confirm what I reported months before Operation Iraqi Freedom: planning for the terror war against Coalition forces in Iraq "began before the U.S. invaded."

    And Time quotes a "British military intelligence officer about the relative inattention paid to the murderous Iranian activities. 'It's as though we are sleepwalking'."

    Instead of devoting hours of prime time coverage to the ravings of a broken mother, our media would do better to ask this administration why, four years after 9/11, it still has no Iran policy.

    Perhaps, although one cannot say more than that, we are paying more attention. First came the announcement that American forces in Iraq found a cache of Iranian weapons, and had also captured a truck with shaped explosives entering Iraq from Iran.

    Then, talking to journalists on his plane during a South American swing on August 17, Rumsfeld said that U.S. forces have found Iranian weapons in Iraq "on more than one occasion over the past couple of months."

    These are straws in a very strong wind, and they will be blown away unless President Bush, Secretaries Rice and Rumsfeld, and Security Adviser Hadley at long last craft a serious policy to bring the terror war to bear on Tehran, as the president should have demanded on 9/12/01.

    The list of proven Iranian actions in the terror war against us is a very long one. To take just a few:

    In July, Assistant Secretary of State David Welch testified to the House International Relations Committee that "Iranian cadre were training Hizballah fighters in Lebanon," which Representative Tom Lantos quite reasonably found "profoundly disturbing."

    Hezbollah is operating in Iraq, and its infamous operational chieftain, Imad Mughniyah, remains at large even though the US Government has put a very high price on his head for decades.

    U.S. special forces in Hilla last fall captured documents and photographs of known Iraqi terrorists meeting with Syrian and Iranian intelligence officers in Syria.

    The celebrated Spanish magistrate Baltasar Garzon publicly stated that, after the liberation of Afghanistan, al Qaeda reconstituted its leadership in Iran, where they convened a strategic summit in November, 2002.

    One of the participants was a Syrian named Mustafa Setmariam Nasar, who is now suspected by British authorities of being one of the masterminds of the lethal terrorist attack in London. According to Spanish newspapers, "Intelligence reports from foreign agencies last year placed Nasar in Iran."

    The seemingly inescapable fact is that Iran is waging war on us, we are well aware of it, and we are not responding, even though most Iranians are dreaming of the day that the United States supports them against the mullahs.

    Hardly a day goes by without anti-regime demonstrations in one Iranian city or another, involving students, workers, intellectuals, and even some very important clergymen. The number of Iranian dissidents on hunger strike is growing. Akbar Ganji hovers between life and death in a hospital in Tehran.

    Yet, aside from occasional statements of compassion, there is no hint of action from the Bush administration.

    This inaction has recently been buttressed by two fanciful "estimates" from the intelligence community. The first reassuringly forecast that Iran is a good ten years away from nuclear weapons; the second insisted that no revolution is in the Iranian works.

    To which the only proper response is a belly laugh.

    I'm personally willing to bet the farm against any intel-type willing to take the wager that Iran will have atomic bombs in a period closer to ten days than to ten years.

    And the "no revolution in the works" prediction comes from the same people who made the same prediction just before the fall of the Shah and who confidently told Ronald Reagan that the Soviet Empire was here to stay.

    President Reagan ignored these deep thinkers, and the Soviet Union is no more. President Bush needs to do the same with the Mullacracy of Iran.

    Enough already. Let’s roll.

    and no modern day Greek tragedy would be complete without the diabolical flying monkeys at the United Nations weighing in on Iran's [lanned  nuclear holocaust;

    UN nuke agency to clear Iran on uranium charge, diplomats say 

    The UN nuclear agency has concluded that highly enriched uranium particles found in Iran were from imported equipment and not from Iran's own activities, diplomats said.

    I swear,  I couldn't make this stuff up.

    "Muslim Sister Swim"

    How is it legal to have a public pool exclusively used for one religion?

    The left is working to remove "under G-d" from the Pledge of allegiance, nativity scenes from any and all government premises, ban the ten commandments  from courthouses etc. but securing the rights of muslims to the exclusion of all other American citizens, that is the left's objective.

    There is a pattern here and it wreaks of sedition.Swimming_muslim

    Check this out over at Sound Politics

    By pretending that all cultures are equal, multiculturalism doesn’t ‘preserve’ traditional cultures so much as sustain them in an artificial state that ensures they’ll develop bizarre pathologies and mutate into some freakish hybrid of the worst of both worlds.

    Last month there was an article in the Seattle Times on a program where city public swimming pools have regularly scheduled hours for the exclusive use of Muslims: "Preserving modesty, in the pool"

    It's Saturday evening, the end of a hot day, and a group of women and children have gathered at North Seattle's Meadowbrook Pool for their monthly swim ... The women and children — all Muslims — have been swimming in private once a month at Meadowbrook as part of a program organized by the North Seattle Family Center.

    The outfit that organizes and pays for the Muslim Sister Swim is the North Seattle Family Center, a unit of the Children's Home Society, a non-profit that gets most of its money from various government sources. As such, it should strictly comply with non-discrimination guidelines. Nevertheless, the Muslim Sister Swim is open exclusively to Muslims, no infidel women need apply.

    Let see, that's the third state to succumb to dhimmitude. 47 and counting............

    Number of males per 100 females."Calling all Feminazis!"

    Read Astute Blogger NOW;

    The Economist publishes a fascinating little booklet with all sorts of fascinating facts and figures about a variety of things. It's titled, "POCKET WORLD IN FIGURES", 2005 Edition; Profile Books; London; 2005.
    Iran_1


    I just got one. I found an interesting chart on page 24 - a page titled, "Men and Women." The chart I found most interesting is one of three on the page; it's called, "Most male populations." It's sub-titled, "Number of males per 100 females."

     Of the thirty (30) nations on the list (being the thirty with the greatest IMBALANCE, with far more men than women - and far more than might be expected if there were no intervention - 20 of them are predominantly Muslim (or with a very large Muslim segment of the population).

     The most imbalanced is (at #1) the UAE [189 males per 100 females], followed by Qatar, Kuwait, Oman, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia [117 males /100 females], and then non-Muslim Guam, followed by #8 Jordan, followed by non-Arab - but Muslim Brunei, Sri Lanka, Libya, and then non-Muslim Polynesian & Papua, followed by Muslim (but non-Arab) Afghanistan, followed by India (which has a very large Muslim population), and then China [where we KNOW they practice female infanticide - 106 males/100 females], then Muslim Bangladesh, non-Muslim New Caledonia, then Muslim Pakistan, Muslim and European Albania, non-Muslim Nepal, then Cote d'Ivoire (which has a significant Muslim population), and then Taiwan and Costa Rica and Fiji, then Muslim Gaza and Muslim West Bank, Muslim Iran, Muslim Malaysia, and Muslim Yemen [103 males/100 females] .

     wenty of the thirty nations with severe imbalances -- which cannot be explained by natural forces, but which are most likely the result of direct, human intervention -- are Muslim. Another indication that there is a connection between this imbalance and Islam is the fact that (according to another chart on the same page in the same booklet) of thirty (30) nations with imbalances which FAVOR women, only ONE (1) is predominantly Muslim or has a significant Muslim minority.

    "Everyone suspected that the election of Ahmedinejad [Iran] would bring this kind of evil to Kurdistan, but why did they have to be right? "

    ................moaned  a blogger on a Kurdish website;
    Kurd4 Kurd_3 Kurd_2 Kurd_1

    While the left and the feminists rail against Bush and the Bush doctrine, grave, terrible crimes against humanity go unpunished. Women suffer horribly under sharia. Child rape, human trafficking, the litany of abuses are mind blowing.
    While Hollywood makes inane ridiculous movies that are nothing short of an insult to our intelligence, our youth are distracted. Playing in  sandbox of delusion while historical, life altering events continue apace across the free world.

    Where is our moral fiber? Where is our moral compass? What kind of shmucks have we given the keys to our national psyche?

    Eisenhower upon leaving presidential office warned us to beware the "military industrial complex". I say beware the "entertainment/media industrial complex". How can this group of influence peddlers abandon the very thing the makes America the great human experiment that she is. The war between good and evil has never been so blatant. So easy to see, understand and yet we stand around and continue to contemplate the illogical, irrational arguments of the left.

    Hollywood should be telling the stories of our war heros (see sidebar) and rallying around the great fight for freedom, much the way Old Hollywood did during World War II. Instead they are polluting our fine young minds with tripe, and t & a, and punked, utter nonsense.

    How can we ignore the patently obvious?

    These pictures are but a small glimpse into the barbarism being exacted on the Kurds in Iran. The Kurds have been our great ally in Iraq. They are rising up in Iran and getting slaughtered. WE CANNOT, MUST NOT turn a blind eye. Outside it's America.....................

    "America must not repeat its shameful policies of the past which have treated our Kurdish friends worse than Arabs who deliberately blow us apart. The same State Department, which rejected the Jews' right to a state in 1948, continues to see justice only through Arab eyes regarding the Kurds as well. "

    "Too many Kurds have died as a result of such justice for Arabs only double standards. The Foggy Folks have already repeatedly told stateless Kurds that they dare not dream of the same thing that those very same Foggy Folks demand for Arabs...independence. There is no American-sponsored roadmap for the Kurds. But, in the Arabs' case, state #22--and second, not first, one to be created for them in "Palestine"--is considered a must."'

    "We control the media instead of the media controlling us."

    Who said that?  Why an islamic leader at CAIR of course................read this devastating Memri report from Steve Salinsky at the New York Sun;  PAY ATTENTION FOLKS..............it's time for WE THE LIVING to take back the media.

    CAIR & Co.'s FatwaTerror_media
    The MEMRI Report

    CAIR leaders discussed the organization's manipulation of the press under the headline "A Muslim America - Only a Matter of Time." One leader stated openly, "We control the media instead of the media controlling us." CAIR's founder, Nihad Awadh, described techniques utilized by the group's spokesman, Ibrahim Hooper, to infiltrate the press: "You will be surprised to hear that all his articles do not go through censorship and correction in the big papers," Mr. Awadh said.

    A CAIR leader added, "CAIR [exerts] today an organized and educated effort, using American media techniques and exploiting American legal loopholes ... For example: One of the editors of the American monthlies attacked the Muslims ... Answering these allegations, CAIR convened a press conference and recruited all Muslims to call the monthly in every communication method, and we paralyzed the paper's interests, and the man [the editor] was forced to apologize ... We exploit this position whenever someone else rises up to attack Muslims, and present to him what happened to those before him, and then he retracts ... This method has gained us great achievements and stops serious attempts to attack Islam."

     A New York Times story about the Fatwa quoted CAIR, as well as Jamal Badawi, who was identified as chairman of the Islamic Foundation in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

    Mr. Badawi went on to make an outrageous claim - that America could be behind these attacks: "This has to be investigated as to who is actually behind this ... There have been allegations that I cannot confirm that people going to the market to buy vegetables are stopped in the name of inspecting their cars by [American] forces, their hands are tied and they are blindfolded. There have been cases and I want a clarification from American officials to these allegations. After inspecting their cars they are allowed to go and when the car reaches [the] checkpoint it explodes and they call them suicide bombers, perhaps the occupants of the car were not even aware that they are carrying a bomb in their car. Such incidents should be thoroughly probed."

    You and I Must Save the Iranian Kurds before it's too late

    This map shows where Kurds are majorities.  The western part of Iran has alot of Kurds.  Major cities for Iranian Kurds are Mahabad, Sanandaj and Kermenshah.

    Iran_kurd
    The Iranian Kurds are desperate. We cannot ignore their bloody oppressed cries for our help. Why do we ignore our allies and kiss the asses of everyone that stabs us in the back? These are our friends, kindred spirits in the fight for freedom. These are the people we should be liberating along with Iraq.

    Iran is already at war with us in Iraq. They are ignoring the feeble attempts by Eurabia to appease them and march ever more deliberately towards nuclear enrichment. Peaceful use my ass.

    Iran expressed defiance in the face of an emergency meeting on its nuclear programme, with President Mahmood Ahmadinejad dismissing a European Union offer of nuclear cooperation as an "insult".

    Accusing Europe of "living in the last century", Ahmadinejad said he still wanted talks that are teetering on collapse following Tehran's decision to resume uranium conversion activities to continue, but with different proposals.

    The vehemence of Ahmadinejad's defence of Iran's right to the nuclear fuel cycle was echoed by Defence Minister Ali Shamkhani, who said Iran should not worry about the possibility it will now be referred to the UN Security Council.
    "Should we accept humiliation, the sanctions, see ourselves be punished, or should we resist? I think that we should resist," Shamkhani told journalists.
    The Islamic republic's defiance won approval in the hardline press with Jomhuri Eslami saying that the "next step is Natanz", referring to Iran's nuclear enrichment plant. "We have won," it said.

    There is only one answer REGIME CHANGE. WE backed the wrong muslims in Bosnia (yeah the guys we saved are backing al qaeda) but I blame Clinton for that. This is a historic opportunity to do something glorious here.

    We must save the Kurds..........Kurdish uprisings and pictures of tortured Kurds are published by Kurdish news sites.

    General strike paralyzes Iranian Kurdistan

    A general strike has started to paralyze, since this morning, the northwestern Iran. Cities, such as, Marivan, Oshnaviah, Bookan, Sardashat, Javan-Rood, Mahabad, Baneh, Saghez, Piranshahr, and Sannandaj are affected by the popular action.

    Ahwazi Arabs in Solidarity with Iran's Kurds


    Ahwaz Arabs have backed Kurdish protests against the Iranian regime after dozens of Kurds were killed in uprisings in Mahabad, Baneh and Saqqez.

    The Iranian security forces used heavy weapons, including helicopter-mounted machine guns, to kill Kurdish demonstrators during nearly a month of unrest.

    The Democratic Party of Iranian Kurdistan, a centre-left opposition group outlawed in Iran, has urged "international organisations, human-rights supporters and the international community to make efforts to stop the bloodshed of the Iranian Kurdish people by the Islamic republic regime of Iran".

    Iraqi Kurds protest, saying Iran has detained Kurds

    Reuters, Kurdish police dispersed hundreds of Kurds protesting outside U.N. offices in Iraqi Kurdistan on Saturday over reports of detentions of dozens of Iranian Kurds just across the border.

    "We support our brothers in Iran and demand that all the detainees are released," one demonstrator, Asso Mustafa, said in Sulaimaniya, adding he had friends among those detained.

    Protesters said authorities in Iran had arrested dozens of Kurds over the last 10 days, including public figures well-known as Kurdish rights campaigners, after they had staged protests in favour of Kurdish rights in Iran.

    Tensions boiled over in Iranian Kurdistan last month with rioting in the town of Mahabad. Shortly afterwards, three Iranian policemen were killed in a gun battle with Kurdish separatists.

    Iran: Amnesty International calls for an urgent investigation into the killing of demonstrators

    Amnesty International today expressed alarm at the cycle of violence in the Iranian province of Kordestan and neighbouring Kurdish areas, which has reportedly left up to 20 people dead, hundreds wounded. Hundreds of others are believed to have been arrested, including prominent Kurdish human rights defenders and activists.

    These are serious deadly events. We cannot stand by and do nothing. That's a crime.Roya12

    UPDATE: Tuesday, August 10th..........Tim asks "Where is the media on stories like this?"

    Arabs go to Kurdistan for jobs

    Each morning before dawn, hundreds of Arabs from southern Iraq gather near a mosque in Sulemani hoping to find work on one of scores of construction sites dotting the landscape.

    What began 18 months ago as a trickle of poor, unemployed young men moving north to find work and escape violence in predominantly Arab areas has now turned into a rapid stream.

    And it's no longer just the poor and jobless fleeing.

    Professionals -- including doctors, engineers and teachers -- are following them, desperate to escape the chaos tearing cities such as Baghdad, Basra, Baquba and Hilla apart.

    "I came here for safety, and for my family," says Dr Ali Alwan, 40, an eye specialist who moved from the southern city of Basra to Sulaimaniya in late 2003 and has since encouraged dozens of former colleagues to follow him.

    "Here it is a wonderful life. The children are in school, my wife is happy and there is good work," he says. "I don't think I will ever return to Basra."

    "Too many of my friends were threatened," he said, referring to barbers who have been killed by militants for cutting hair in western styles or shaving beards. "Here I feel much safer."
     
    The language barrier is a problem, but he has found a house in a Christian village, where most people speak Arabic.
     
    "The money is good and the people are friendly," he says.

    IRAN: CRACKDOWN ON ETHNIC KURDS

    Question: What is our reaction to Iranian government crackdown on ethnic minority Kurds in northern party of country?

    Answer: The United States is concerned by reports of an Iranian government crackdown on ethnic Kurds in northern Iran, and in Iran's southwestern province of Khuzestan.  These reports indicate that several people have been killed and that many more, perhaps hundreds, may have been arrested.

    Denial of the rights of minority groups is one aspect of the regime's appalling human rights and democracy record that has been well documented by non-governmental organizations and in our annual Country Report on Human Rights.  We call on the Iranian authorities to exercise restraint and to respect the peaceful exercise by the Iranian people of their democratic rights.

    SHOCKA! Jihadists and ACLU Joined at the Hip

    Jihadists Against Bag Searches

    By Red Square
    8Jihad_aclu_300/9/2005, 7:26 pm

    A new civil rights group is fighting a shameful practice: bag searches in the New York City subways that are infringing on the rights of suicide bombers to kill and maim hundreds of New Yorkers. The group that calls itself Jihadists Against Bag Searches distributed flyers today to straphangers (image, left), warning them of the erosion of civil liberties in America.

    Dressed in oversized trench coats and carrying heavy backpacks, the group members asked the New Yorkers a simple yet disarming question: "Is this the country you really want to live in, if it profiles a minority that has blown up cars, buildings, buses, trains, and airplanes in the past?"

    "They're right," a concerned young lawyer told our correspondent. "With so many people entering the subway, how can we be sure that the searches are absolutely random? There's a big chance it's all a cover-up for profiling minorities. If the police succeeds in preventing them from blowing me up on the train, it will be the end of my civil liberties. I better send another big check to ACLU - that is, if I don't wind up with both of my arms torn off in a blast."

    "We are not yet a Muslim nation, so aggressive police behavior won't yield world sympathy," said a female middle-aged financial analyst as she nervously packed her bag after being searched. "As a Western power that places reason above emotions, we need to suffer more in order to have the world like us again - and for that I am willing to meet a horrible end with a dozen rusty bolts sticking out of my forehead."

    Jihadists Against Bag Searches were accompanied by ACLU observers to ensure that they are not harassed by the police or right-wing extremists. One such accident was recorded at a subway stop next to the former World Trade Center site, in which a rambling right-winger allegedly whispered, "Islamofascists had better not act up too much, or else our Hollywood will come out with more crappy movies about the menace of neo-Nazis, Christian Crusaders and the Mossad." The man has been arrested and faces charges of hate speech, harassment, and an attempt to provoke an international conflict. ACLU dispatched their best lawyers to this case and will monitor it to make sure that the perpetrator receives maximum punishment possible under the circumstances.

    Kill Jews, Get Free Pass

    UNDER THE MEDIA RADAR

    Recent media coverage of the Mideast conflict has focused almost entirely on internal Israeli tension as Israel's 'disengagement' from Gaza approaches. It's broadly recognized, though, that Israel's sacrifice of its Gaza communities will only foster peace if accompanied by deep cultural reform on the other side ― including Palestinian education for coexistence, and a free, moderate Palestinian press.

    Yet important developments in those areas routinely slip under the western media radar:

    The official Palestinian Authority newspaper continues to glorify terrorists, flouting the PA's obligation under the road map for 'all official Palestinian institutions [to] end incitement against Israel.' These two men recently murdered an Israeli couple visiting Gaza, yet the official PA paper described them as Shahids ― 'holy martyrs':

    All Palestinian journalists, moreover, have been banned from covering internal Palestinian conflict or the PA security forces (violators face 'personal and legal consequences of their deeds'), and urged to celebrate Israel's Gaza 'retreat'. This clearly fails the all-important 'town square test' recently endorsed by Condoleeza Rice, citing Natan Sharansky:

     

    if a person cannot walk into the middle of the town square and express his or her views without fear of arrest, imprisonment, or physical harm, then that person is living in a fear society, not a free society. And we cannot rest until every person living in a fear society has finally won their freedom.

    Meanwhile, a San Francisco Chronicle reporter visited a Hamas summer camp, where he found this disturbing scene:

     

    "In this camp we learn the important things of life ― good behavior, respect," said Osama, who was spending the summer at a Hamas-run camp on the beach outside Gaza City. They also learn how to sing "intifada songs," including one urging them to "kill Zionists wherever they are, in the name of God."

    Here's a sample camp activity:

    HamascampAt one beach camp, attended by approximately 100 kids, an instructor wore a heavy flannel shirt under which a webbed belt could be seen strapped to his stomach. Asked by a reporter what it was, he answered, with a broad smile, "Boom!"

    While the Chronicle should be commended for this coverage (on the heels of its recent, HR-documented slipup), this story demands far greater awareness.

    For more on the problem of Palestinian incitement, visit HR affiliate Teach Kids Peace, and sign the TKP petition calling on world leaders to demand reform in Palestinian education, and media outlets to greater publicize the issue.

    Why so little western coverage of these disturbing events? Martin Peretz, Editor-in-Chief of The New Republic, explains:

    The PA has so many times obliged itself to Bill Clinton, George Bush, and the Israelis to stop official incitement against Jews and Israel. But the most grotesque and genocide-provoking hatred for the Jewish people and their state continues to flood the official marketplace of what you might not want to call ideas. I've known this for years, and American journalists have known it for years, but it has gone largely unreported. It's not their kind of story because it ruins the story of Palestinian moderation, to which so many reporters, columnists, and editorialists are wed.

    As Israel prepares for its painful withdrawal from Gaza, HonestReporting calls on western news outlets to recognize the ongoing media restrictions, incitement and education to hate in Palestinian culture ― which threaten Israel's voluntary effort to generate peace with its Palestinian neighbors.

    A week in the Life of Israel vs A Week in the Death of Iran

    Let' s take a look see (as we did last week) at  the contribution Iran makes to humanity vs. Israel
    It's devastating considering Europeans consider Israel the number one threat to world peace.

    First we'll look at Iran, shall we?Head

    The NY Sun:

    Defying warnings from the Iranian regime ordering her not to talk to foreign reporters, the wife of dissident journalist Akbar Ganji yesterday told The New York Sun that she has had no choice but to appeal to the international community to save the life of her husband, who today enters Day 53 of a hunger strike. Meanwhile in New York, a spokesman for Secretary-General Annan says his boss has personally intervened with the mullahs on Mr. Ganji's behalf.

    In an exclusive telephone interview yesterday, Massoumeh Shafieh said: "We are appealing to the United Nations, human rights groups, and other nations to pressure our government to release my husband. Our struggle must reach out past the borders of Iran now. Our leaders will not listen to their people, they will only respond to external pressure."

    Palis fire on Israeli Protesters, Kill Palistinian toddler

    and they killed their own kinder...........................you reap what you sow

    My Way reports:Annan_arafat_2

    SDEROT, Israel (AP) - Palestinians fired rockets Tuesday at a gathering of thousands of Israeli settlers protesting the upcoming Gaza withdrawal, but missed, killing instead a 3-year-old Palestinian boy and wounding nine other Palestinians in Gaza.

    Among the wounded were five children, aged 4 to 11, including four children of Hisham Abdel Razek, a senior official in the ruling Fatah party and a former Palestinian Cabinet minister. Abdel Razek's wife was also injured.

    The dead boy was identified as Yasser Adnan Ashkar, who was killed when one of the stray rockets hit his family's home in Beit Hanoun, northeast of Gaza City. His 11-year-old brother was in critical condition. Abdel Razek's family was visiting at the time, witnesses said.

    Now keep telling me it's about the Palis wanting their own land and not about the elimination of Israel.

    Conflicts of Interest - Martin Peretz
    Given the world's being so enthusiastically taken in by Arafat, given the forked tongues of the present Palestinian leadership, one issue for Israel is: Can the Palestinians be trusted? Frankly, it's hard to find many people who'd answer in the affirmative. News has trickled out about details of Condoleezza Rice's demands on Israel, which apparently include that it supply the PA with weapons and ammunition. And who exactly will guarantee that these will not fall into the hands of the legions of habitual terrorists who nestle in the PA's militias or that they won't simply be passed on to the pious murderers of Hamas and Islamic Jihad?
        The PA has so many times obliged itself to Bill Clinton, George Bush, and the Israelis to stop official incitement against Jews and Israel. But the most grotesque and genocide-provoking hatred for the Jewish people and their state continues to flood the official marketplace of what you might not want to call ideas. I've known this for years, and American journalists have known it for years, but it has gone largely unreported. It's not their kind of story because it ruins the story of Palestinian moderation, to which so many reporters, columnists, and editorialists are wed. (New Republic)

    It's About the Women

    I have always believed it was about the women..............always

    From To the Point:Woman

    Not quite two years ago, in Terrorism and Tiny Zibbs, I discussed why one of the principal causes of Moslem terrorism is that so many Moslem men are afraid of women.

     

    This was made quite evident in a London Daily Telegraph poll of British Moslems conducted last week that stunned the British. 24% of British Moslems, it turns out, are sympathetic with the feelings and motives of the suicide bombers attacking London, and almost one-third believe that: “Western society is decadent and immoral and that Moslems should seek to bring it to an end.”

     

    The outrage this provoked caused most folks to overlook the poll’s internals, which showed that the great majority of those alienated British Moslems are men. Very few British Moslem women want to bring Western society to an end, for that society respects them as full human beings and gives them freedom to act as such.

     

    So all this soul-searching navel-gazing blather in the British liberal press agonizing over the failure of British society to cure Moslem alienation utterly misses the point – as liberals almost unfailingly do. The fault, the blame, the cause of Moslem terrorism, hatred, and alienation lie not with us in the West, but with the cultural defects of Moslems themselves – and specifically of Moslem men.

    An American Hiroshima?

    You Must Read FrontPageMag's interview with  Joseph Farah, the founder, editor and chief executive officer of WND

    Farah:  Several reporters and top intelligence analysts -- people including me, YossefAmerica_hiroshima Bodansky, the former terrorism guru to the U.S. Congress, Paul Williams, author of the upcoming book, "The Al Qaeda Connection," and others -- have been working quietly and independently for years on this issue of al-Qaida's acquisition and plans for nuclear weapons. What's happening is that this independent work has led to surprisingly similar conclusions -- that al-Qaida has nuclear weapons, probably many of them, and that some of them, according to a variety of sources, have already been smuggled into this country using our porous borders and with the help of criminal enterprises like the MS-13 gang.

     There is no question, based on captured documents and captured al-Qaida leaders that Osama bin Laden has been planning his "American Hiroshima" for many years -- long before Sept. 11, 2001. When you hear U.S. officials -- from President Bush, to Vice President Dick Cheney, to the head of the FBI and Homeland Security all telling us about the "inevitability" of a terrorist attack on the U.S. with weapons of mass destruction, this is what they are talking about. They haven't come right out and made the announcements about what they know is the threat because they have determined it might create a panic. We're not reporting anything the White House doesn't know. We're not reporting anything the CIA doesn't know. We're not reporting anything the FBI doesn't know. We're just reporting what the American people don't know. And since the government is doing next to nothing to protect the American people, it seems appropriate to let them in on the dirty little secret.

    There is a major threat to the U.S. civilian population from al-Qaida's existing nuclear arsenal -- and, based on the evidence, I believe some of that arsenal has already been delivered to this country.

     

    Youth wing of UK Muslim group calls for jihad

    New Zealand Herald reports

    Children as young as 11 are being targeted by radical Muslims who appear to haveHamas_child_2_3 infiltrated a mainstream Muslim website.
    Literature aimed at children between 11 and 18 on the youth section of the Islamic Society of Britain (ISB) website calls on them to "boycott those who openly wage war against Allah".

    The article containing that quote, entitled "Imam Hassan al-Banna on jihad", goes on to say: "Jihad is a powerful invigorating yearning for Islam's might and glory ... which makes you cry when looking at the weakness of Muslims today and the humiliating tragedies crushing him to death everywhere. "

     In the outer suburbs of Washington, long filled with Christian churches, new andDhimmitude expanding Muslim mosques are changing the religious landscape.

    In Woodbridge, a $1.8 million mosque built to hold 1,000 worshipers will open in January. Starting in October, Ellicott City Muslims will pray in a new $2 million mosque large enough to accommodate almost 1,000 people. Mosques from Annapolis to Manassas are growing as Muslims who have migrated to the outer suburbs seek places to worship near where they live.

    Some are moving into office buildings and homes -- even into some former churches -- as Muslims establish informal houses of worship called masjids . Close-by mosques are desirable for the Muslim faithful because of the religion's ritual of five daily prayers and Friday prayer services.

    This Is Progress? Iraq, Shame on You

    How depressing, the more things change, the more they stay the same (or get worse)

    A draft of the “Bill of Rights” in the forthcoming Constitution of Iraq, as of July 20,Antisemitism2 2005, tells Jews who fled Iraq: you are not welcome to return. Jews from Iraq who fled before 1968 are not eligible to obtain Iraqi nationality and citizenship.

    An earlier draft published in June 30 stated, “Any individual with another nationality (except for Israel) may obtain Iraqi nationality after a period of residency inside the borders of Iraq of not less than ten years for an Arab or twenty years for any other nationality.” The July 20 draft states that Iraqis who lost citizenship after 1968 may regain it, thus still excluding almost all Iraqi Jews, but at least not exclusively.

    Before Israel become an independent state in 1948, there were 150,000 Jewish citizens in Iraq. Israelites have lived in Iraq for over 2500 years. In 586 B.C.E., Babylon conquered Judea and brought many Jews to what is now Iraq. Baghdad later became a major center of Jewish thought. During the 1930s and 1940s, Nazi ideology infected the Arab region. In 1941, led by a mufti allied with Nazi Germany, there was a pro-Nazi coup, followed by killing, raping, and looting of Jews. Iraqi Jews call this the “Farhud,” or “violent dispossession.” The British army then came in and squashed the pogrom.

    Fox News Blows it Again

    This e-mail sent to Fox News this morning:

    Subject: Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi, the imam of the Islamic Society of Orange County.

    Dear E.D. (Hill) and Brian (Kilmead),

    My wife and I are loyal viewers of the Fox News Channel, and big fans of "Fox & Friends"; however, this morning we were stunned and disturbed by an interview you had with Dr.Muzammil Siddiqi, the imam  of the Islamic Society of Orange County. He was discussing the recent anti-terror fatwah issued by U.S. Islamic groups.

    Are you familiar with this man's history? If not, here are some examples of how tolerant and benign this man is:

    **Siddiqi has accompanied visiting Saudi officials from the Muslim World League on fund-raising tours across America, and is listed on its Website as the organization's  official representative in the United States. Offices of the Muslim World League in Herndon, Va., were raided by a federal antiterrorism task force in March 2002 because of suspected ties to al-Qaeda.

    **During an anti-Israel rally outside the White House on Oct. 28, 2000, Siddiqi openly threatened the United States with violence if it continued its support of Israel. "America has to learn ... ifyou remain on the side of injustice, the wrath of God will come. Please, all Americans. Do you remember that? ... If you continue doing injustice, and tolerate injustice, the wrath of God will come." By "injustice," he meant U.S. support for Israel.

    **Siddiqi also has called for a wider application of sharia law in the United States, and in a 1995 speech praised suicide bombers. "Those who die on the part of justice are alive, andtheir place is with the Lord, and they receive the highest position, because this is the highest honor," he was quoted as saying bythe Kansas City Star on Jan. 28, 1995.

    ** "I can see there is already some impact of jihad in Afghanistan, in the intifadah movement in Palestine ...insha'allah, you will see, in a few years, we will be celebrating, insha'allah, the coming victory of Islam in Palestine ... We will be  celebrating, insha'allah, the coming of Jerusalem and the whole land of Palestine, insha'allah, and the establishment of the Islamicstate throughout that area." – this is a quote from Muzammil Siddiqi documented in Steve Emerson's book "AmericanJihad".

    My wife and I urge you to reveal this man's radicalism to the general audience, and to have your producers do some "duediligence" into the backgrounds of guests you choose to have on
    your show. People like Muzammil Siddiqi are part of the problem, not part of the solution to radical Islamic terrorism.

    Sincerely,

    Hamas Calls Gaza Withdrawal Plan A "National Achievement" Hamas_child_1

    New York – A senior leader of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, Ismail Haneya, has described the upcoming Israeli withdrawal/expulsion of 10,000 Jews from their homes, schools, synagogues, farms and businesses in Gaza and Northern Samaria as "a national achievement." In an interview, Haneya was quoted as saying, "Hamas sees in the Israeli withdrawal from Gaza Strip a national achievement by the Palestinian people. It is the fruit of the resistance and steadfastness of the Palestinian people. That is why Hamas is interested to see a full withdrawal from the Gaza Strip so the Palestinian people can enjoy freedom as a first stage on the path of liberating the rest of the occupied Palestinian territories" (bitterlemons.org, July 25).

    UN official: Darfur authorities bully rape victims

    UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Gang rapes in Sudan's Darfur region, especially by soldiers andDarfur1rape_2 police, often go unpunished with authorities more willing to arrest the victims than the perpetrators, a U.N. official said on Thursday.

    Louise Arbour, the Geneva-based high commissioner for human rights, told the U.N. Security Council that complaints against military and other law enforcement personnel were delayed indefinitely or dismissed outright.

    "When rape is not established by the courts, rape victims risk facing criminal charges themselves," she told the council in a closed session before releasing her briefing notes.

    Arbour, who intends to release a report on Friday on access to justice for Darfur rape victims, said "rape and gang rapes continue to be perpetrated by armed elements in Darfur, some of whom are members of law enforcement agencies and the armed forces."

    "The government appears either unable or unwilling to hold them consistently accountable," Arbour said.

    Victims and witnesses had faced arrest for "providing false information" after reporting sexual violence, she said

    BEARDS  AND  SCARVE AREN'T  MUSLIM.  THEY'RE  SIMPLY  ADVERTS  FOR  AL-QAEDA
    by Amir Taheri
    The Times, London
    July 27, 2005

    LAST SUNDAY, hours after the terrorist attacks in Sharm el-Sheikh, a few dozen men and women gathered in front of the local town hall to vent their anger against those who had transformed the resort into a scene of death and desolation.

    With cries of "No to murderers", they invited others to join. At first many hesitated — after all, Egypt has sweated under a state of emergency for 25 years. And the ordinary citizen has little incentive to provoke either the Government or the terrorists. Nevertheless, in almost all parts of Egypt people followed the example of Sharm el-Sheikh with symbolic funerals for the 90 or so victims of the tragedy.

    Remarkably, in almost all demonstrations the participants also remembered and prayed for the victims of the suicide attacks in London. For the first time crowds of Muslims were condemning terrorism without making a distinction between the victims on the basis of their faith. So, is this the beginning of the long-awaited Muslim awakening to a dark force that threatens civilised world everywhere in the name of Islam?

    Sadly, the answer cannot be better than: perhaps, perhaps not. The 7/7 attacks in London inspired some sympathetic comment throughout the Muslim countries. But even then many commentators could not resist taking a swipe at Britain for having "hosted Islamist terrorists" for years. A number of self-styled clerics, including 58 Pakistanis, have issued fatwas (opinions) that, on the surface, look like a rejection of terrorism. A closer look, however, shows that they still have a long way to go before they could be taken seriously.

    Some self-styled clerics, including many in the British Muslim community, have used semantic trickery to hedge their bets. They condemn the attacks in Sharm el-Sheikh but when it comes to the attacks in London, all they are prepared to say is that they "do not condone" them. More disturbingly, their statements include the usual litany of Muslim woes about Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan, and the assertion that "our youths" are right to be angry. The more they speak the more unspeakable they become.

    In some cases sophistry is at play. For example, Yusuf al-Qaradawi, an Egyptian televangelist based in Qatar, has issued a fatwa pronouncing as "illicit" the murder of people who have "temporary or permanent accords" with an individual Muslim or an Islamic state; such as foreigners invited to work in a Muslim country. As for Muhammad Khatami, Iran's outgoing President, it is "illicit" to murder "innocents". The trouble, however, is that he does not define who is innocent and who is not.

    Such people use ambiguities because a blanket condemnation of terrorism would extend to attacks on Israelis and Americans, whom they do not regard as "innocent civilians".

    But Muslims everywhere need to get to grips with a phenomenon that threatens all Muslim countries and Islamic communities in the West. This requires Muslim opinion-makers to take a number of steps.

    What if Hitler was G-d?

    What If Hitler Was God?
    The scene: It is November, 1943. We’re in Camp Shelby, just outside of Hattiesburg, Mississippi,Hitlertalar_2 where 5,300 German prisoners of war are interned. The Geneva Conventions are being strictly adhered to, with food (prepared by German cooks), clothing, and medical care equal to their captors. The German POWs have formed soccer and volleyball teams, with descriptions and results of the tournaments between them reported in the camp newspaper, The Mississippi Post.

    A Nazi church has been erected in the camp, where Nazi worshippers attend services held by Nazi chaplains. In their sermons, the chaplains instruct that “Nazism is the true religion, the Aryan Soul the only true God, our understanding of Whom has been brought to us by His Holiness, Adolph Hitler. Our Führer, Adolph Hitler is the true Holy Ghost. He is the human form of the Aryan Soul instantiated here on earth. We believe on this earth solely in Adolph Hitler and his sacred teachings.”

    The Nazi Bible, Mein Kampf, is treated with careful reverence by the American camp guards. “The Holy Mein Kampf must never be placed in offensive areas such as the floor, near the toilet or sink, near the feet, or dirty/wet areas,” state the detailed rules issued by the Pentagon. “Only Nazi chaplains may handle the Holy Nazi Book, or by guards only after putting on clean white gloves in full view of the POWs.”

    Mein_kampf2The Holy Mein Kampf,” states the Pentagon’s directive, “should be treated like a ‘fragile piece of delicate art.’

    The first paragraph in the above four is historically accurate. There really was a Camp Shelby just as described. The remaining three form an imaginary “thought experiment” to demonstrate how investing a criminally pathological ideology with the respect of a “religion” castrates our capacity to fight it.

    Modern fanaticisms are often called “secular religions” – pro-“choice” abortionism, environmentalism, belief in man-made global warming, etc. – because their advocates are impervious to falsifying evidence. But they aren’t true religions, for if they were, the qualifier “secular” wouldn’t be necessary. A true religion requires worshipful belief in a non-natural realm inhabited by one or more consciousnesses not subject to physical laws but rather capable of controlling those laws and thus events in our world and lives.

    So here’s the thought experiment: What if Nazism wasn’t just a political ideology, wasn’t just a secular fanaticism, but a true religion instead? What if its believers worshipped Hitler as God, or as the Prophet of God – the Nazi Deity being the reified Aryan Soul who created the universe for the benefit of his followers? What if Nazis preached totalitarianism, the subjection of everyone to Nazi law, as a religious doctrine giving them the holy right and sacred duty to wage war upon all non-Nazis by any means?

    In other words – is an ideology of hate and violence any more acceptable and excusable if it is disguised as a “religion”?

    The answer is yes – because this is precisely the moral slack we cut for Islam.

    COKE FIEND BIN LADEN

    EXCLUSIVE TO THE NEW YORK POST (also a great New York Newspaper)
    Osama bin Laden tried to buy a massive amount of cocaine, spike it with poison and sell it in the United States, hoping to kill thousands of Americans one year after the 9/11 attacks, The Post has learned.Osama_coke_post_1

    Sources said the feds were told that bin Laden personally met with leaders of a Colombian drug cartel.

    The evil plot failed when the Colombian drug lords bin Laden approached decided it would be bad for their business - and, possibly, for their own health, according to law-enforcement sources familiar with the Drug Enforcement Administration's probe of the aborted transaction. The feds were told of the scheme earlier this year, but its existence had never been made public. The Post has reviewed a document detailing the DEA's findings in the matter, in addition to interviewing sources familiar with the case.

    Sources said the feds were told that bin Laden personally met with leaders of a Colombian drug cartel to in 2002 to negotiate the purchase of tons of cocaine, saying that he was willing to spend tens of millions of dollars to finance the deal.

    My question to the Left: Is it War Yet?

    Having been away this past weekend to bucolic Maine and upstate New York (visiting day for sleep away), the terror homicide bombings continue unabated.

    Sharm El-Sheikh, Egypt was hit bad (80 dead and  the seriously wounded American girl vacationing with her beau has died) and this justSuicidebomberpolicetape after the London terror attacks, not to mention Hamas and Islamic Jihad continuing its war against Israel and the explosion in a Christian part of Lebanon. The back to back  nature of the deadly attacks in Egypt and London, as well as similarities in the methods used, suggests that the al Qaeda leadership have given the orders for both operations and is a clear sign that Osama bin Laden and his deputies may very well  remain in control of the network. And still we  do "random searches" vs  Israel  profiling.Israel_murdered_couple

    My question to the left is  - At what point do they recognize WE ARE AT WAR. The world is at war. RADICAL ISLAM has declared war on Western Civilization. When does the left stop aiding the enemy and fight the great fight?

    And still I turn on the networks (FOX included) and they are still doing the Plame circle jerk.

    What We Can Do Instead Of Bombing Mecca

    Jihad Watch.org

    Jihad Watch Board Vice President Hugh Fitzgerald offers some suggestions of what we can do to defend human rights and resist the jihad threat, in the wake of Congressman Tancredo's remarks:

    It would have been better to make the following point: during the Cold War, the Soviet rulers knew that if they did certain things, certain things would be done by NATO or the American government. And the knowledge of what might be done, would be done, in return, helped prevent the Soviet rulers from doing what they might otherwise have done.

    So it would be helpful to make suggestions as to what would constitute deterrence.Target_1 These might include, not destroying Mecca, which would cause maddened Muslims everywhere to attack and kill Infidels -- and the problem with Islam is that it contains many elements of a violent cult that cannot be wished away, or hidden any longer. Are maddened millions or tens of millions or hundreds of millions of inconsolable Muslims, for whom Mecca no longer exists, and so with nothing further to lose, what we wish to bring into being? No. But the idea of discussing possible means of deterrence, not of the determined suicide-bomber, but of all those who have helped to fund mosques and madrasas, or to supply the emotional and financial and intellectual support system (including the continued smooth practitioners of taqiyya-and-kitman in the West), and who can be threatened in all sorts of ways.

    More sober discussion of how, for example, points of entry and exit into Mecca, could systematically be reduced in number, or airfields used by pilgrims made unusable, is a different suggestion, one that has many advantages, in that it is an incremental response: first this quadrant is closed off, and now this one, and so on.

    It is now clear to Muslims in the West, or to some of them, that their assumption about continued Western appeasement, based on continued misunderstanding of Islam by Infidels was wrong. The EU's foreign policy is still in place, but Bat Ye'or's "Eurabia" is circulating -- even at the highest levels of the Pentagon. Eventually, terror, used as an instrument of Jihad, will alert enough Infidels to the permanent problem of Jihad, of all the instruments of Jihad, including that of demographic conquest and Da'wa, and lead inexorably to an understanding that the Muslims in their midst, allowed in by political elites who were either indifferent, or mesmerized by the Idols of the Age, those unexamined assumptions about how Everyone Wants the Same Thing and All Religions Are Alike. Those Muslims may be "moderate" or "immoderate," and the "moderation" may be real, or feigned, permanent or temporary, immune to, or susceptible to, being jettisoned whenever setbacks or depressive fits or any of the ills that flesh and spirit are heir to, may cause a "moderate" Muslim, or even a "Muslim-for-identification-purposes-only" Muslim, to throw off that "moderation" and morph in Jekyll-into-Hyde fashion, into someone ready to blame the Infidels. There have been quite a few examples of such outwardly "moderate" people changing their beliefs and hence their behavior, as a response not so much to political or geopolitical events, but to personal setbacks, emotional disarray. When the universe is viewed through the prism of Islam, it is the Infidels who always wear black.

    Discussion of measures that might truly curb, for example, the Saudi money that pours into the Western world, and funds mosques everywhere, all over that world, and madrasas all over the dar al-Islam, and that is furthermore used to buy an army of hirelings, non-Muslim apologists for islam, should be undertaken - out in the open so that Infidel publics can be made aware of the size of the problem.

    Deterrent measures, that could be undertaken without waiting in some cases for any further attacks (but further attacks will help to justify the more far-reaching among them) might include, but not be limited to:

     

    1) Seizure of Saudi-owned assets in the West, and sale of such assets to pay for the economic damage, including the cost of surveillance and other security measures, that are attributable to Saudi-funded mosques, madrasas, and propaganda all over the world.

    2) Seizure of other Arab-owned or Muslim-owned assets in the West, for the same reasons. There need not be any distinction made between property owned by governments and those who are deemed to be enemy nationals -- no such distinction was made during World War II.

    3) A complete ban on Muslim migration to the Western world (which needs to be undertaken in any case), and limits put on any contact between Muslims living in the West, who may already have obtained ciizenship and -- unless they are native-born converts -- their countries of origin.

    4) Careful review of how citizenship is obtained, and what oaths of loyalty are administered, and if those oaths can possibly have been meant by those whose sole loyalty, by the very tenets of their belief-system, can only be to Islam and the Community of Believers, the umma al-islamiyya.

    5) Government-sponsored centers to teach people about Islam outside of universities, which all over the Western world have been infiltrated, or rather captured by, apologists for Islam both Muslim and non-Muslim.

    The study of Arabic under teachers whom the Infidel governments will deliberately find among Arabic-speaking non-Muslims, chiefly from those populations most likely not to supply subtle apologists for Islam - Maronites, Copts, disaffected Berbers, Arabic-speaking Jews. A knowledge of Arabic is not required for an understanding of Islam 80% of the world's Muslims do not speak or read Arabic but have no difficulty knowing what Islam is all about. But it can be of help in studying the history of Jihad-conquest, and certainly it can be of help in debates with Muslims who accuse one of "not understanding Islam without a knowledge of Arabic." Nonsense, of course, but nonsense more convincingly refused if someone has studied Arabic.

    6) War-footing (i.e., Manhattan Project support) for solar and wind and nuclear energy projects, for conservation, and for mass transit, including that such as Amtrak which loses money, but should be cheerfully subsidized by an intelligent government bent, even hellbent, on diminishing OPEC oil revenues.

    7) An end to all outward and visible signs of rhetorical "respect" for Islam, including the studied refusal to mention "Islmaic terrorism" or "Muslim terrorism" which has gone on for too long. Use these adjectives; never let them go. Use the word "jihad." Stop all attempts at verbal escamotage, where the listener is left, puzzled, dissatisfied with the deliberate vagueness.

     

    8) End all access to Western education, not only for those Arabs and Muslims studying any kind of science, but in every area. Attempting the hopeless project of "educating them" out of their belief-system will not work. Many terrorists have lived in the West, seen the West, studied in the West, taught in the West. Dr. A. Q. Khan did "research" in the West - and we know the results of that research. Muslims in Western universities are dangerous to Infidel wellbeing, not only because of the women they marry and cause to convert (to the subsequent sorrow of many), but because they are, with the odd exception, likely to conduct Da'wa and promote the geopolitics of Islam. Past masters at taqiyya-and-kitman, they should be regarded as akin to enemy agents, promoting a belief-system that means Infidel political and social arrangements and assumptions no good.

    Condemning them to the solitary confinement of dar al-Islam will cause a concentration of minds.

    9) End all access to the Western world for the children of the ruling elites all over the Muslim world. Without this escape hatch, those rulers will have to begin to consider how to ameliorate things in their own countries.

    10) End the jizyah of Infidel aid to Muslim states, such as Egypt, Pakistan, Jordan, and whatever the latest political instrument of the shock troops of the Jihad against Israel, the "Palestinians," may be called. Call attention to the $10 trillion that has already been recdeived by the Muslim members of OPEC in the last 1/3 century, and continue to advise those Pakistanis, Egyptians, Jordanians and "Palestinians" to ask for that aid no longer from the Infidels, who suddenly have to pay higher prices for oil and hundreds of billions more for security all over the Western world, but to those Arab and Muslim states that, not coincidentally, are receiving those hundreds of billions more in oil revenues each year.

    11) Keep the focus clearly on the belief-system of Islam and on Jihad. And after the next small terrorist attack on Infidels -- say, 10 killed - begin to legislate to make sure that some of the measures suggested above become not merely ideas but the law.

    12) Clean out the taxpayer-funded government radio and television stations of those who have so misled us about Islam over the past 20-30 years. Begin, possibly, by firing John Simpson, the deeply, even conspiratorially, anti-Israel and islamophilic head of the BBC World Affairs broadcasting, the same John Simpson (a close friend of Peter Hounam, whose conspiracy book about Israel is the kind of thing that antisemites love to flog) who described the Muslim bombers in London as "misguided criminals." That should have been enough to cause his discharge. Why wasn't it? What will it take for the long-suffering British license-payers to demand a change in the BBC coverage and, even before that, iin the personnel in charge of reporting on the Middle East and Islam? This domestic Lord Haw-Haw and Tokyo Rose business, where one need not even bother to turn the dial to Radio Berlin or Radio Tokyo to hear the sly propaganda, has to stop.

    These are things that can be done, should be done, long before suggestions about "bombing Mecca" need to be bruited about.

    Talk of attacking Mecca, instead of concentrating on more plausible suggestions (which do include limiting easy access to Mecca, something which the Saudis already do in limiting the number of visitors), is not likely to be helpful.

    London Bomber Helped British Tel Aviv Suicide Bombers
    One of the suspects in the London bombings visited Israel in 2003 and is believed to have helped plan a suicide bombing by two British Muslims in Tel Aviv, the Israeli newspaper Maariv said on Sunday. According to Israeli security sources, Mohammed Sidique Khan, who blew himself up at Edgware Road on July 7, traveled to Israel two years ago to help two fellow Britons of Pakistani descent, Asif Hanif and Omar Sharif, carry out a suicide bombing at a Tel Aviv beachfront bar on April 30, 2003, that killed three Israelis.

    Israel's Cabinet on Sunday gave final approval to a Jerusalem separation barrier meant to stop suicide bombers, over strident Palestinian objections and U.S. misgivings because it will isolate thousands of Palestinians.

    In the wake of the attacks, The (UK) Sun published a roundup of Islamic terrorism 'across the world over the last decade' ― complete with map. Guess which Mideast country that has absorbed hundreds of Islamist attacks during this period does not appear in the Sun's account?

    Could the AP be more obvious in its ANTISEMETISM?

    Two days after the terrorist bombings in London, British Prime Minister Blair gave a high-profile interview on BBC Radio, which Associated Press covered in this manner:

    Prime Minister Tony Blair said Britain must defend against terrorism ― but must also strive to understand the underlying causes of the violence, which he identified as deprivation, lack of democracy and ongoing conflict in the Middle East.

    "I think this type of terrorism has very deep roots," Blair said. "As well as dealing with the consequences of this ― trying to protect ourselves as much as any civil society can ― you have to try to pull it up by its roots."

    That meant boosting understanding between people of different religions, helping people in the Middle East see a path to democracy and easing the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, he said. (emphasis added)

    UPDATE

    AP Corrects: Blair Didn't Link Israel, Bombings
    In the aftermath of last week's terror attacks against London, the Associated Press issued multiple stories reporting that British Prime Minister Tony Blair gave an interview on BBC Radio in which he discussed the "very deep roots" of terrorism and linked the attacks against his country to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. On Sunday the AP issued the following correction: "In a July 9 story about Prime Minister Tony Blair's comments on overcoming global terrorism, the Associated Press erroneously reported that he spoke of easing the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians. Blair did not specifically mention the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in his interview with the British Broadcasting Corp."  (CAMERA)

    Breeding our Executioners

    This is the frontline in the battle for civilization. I have written of these disturbing developments here and here, and a ton of stuff here.

    The Whitehall dossier, ordered by Tony Blair following last year’s train bombings in Madrid, says: “Extremists are known to target schools and colleges where young people may be very inquisitive but less challenging and more susceptible to extremist reasoning/ arguments.”

    “In addition . . . a significant number come from liberal, non-religious Muslim backgrounds or (are) only converted to Islam in adulthood. These converts include white British nationals and those of West Indian extraction.”

    Terror in London

    Leaked No 10 dossier reveals Al-Qaeda’s British recruits

    Read the document: Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4

    AL-QAEDA is secretly recruiting affluent, middle-class Muslims in British universities and colleges to carry out terrorist attacks in this country, leaked Whitehall documents reveal.

    A network of “extremist recruiters” is circulating on campuses targeting people with “technical and professional qualifications”, particularly engineering and IT degrees.

     

    Yesterday it emerged that last week’s London bombings were a sophisticated attack with all the devices detonating on the Underground within 50 seconds of each other. The police believe those behind the outrage may be home-grown British terrorists with no criminal backgrounds and possessing technical expertise.

    A joint Home Office and Foreign Office dossier — Young Muslims and Extremism — prepared for the prime minister last year, said Britain might now be harbouring thousands of Al-Qaeda sympathisers.

    Lord Stevens, the former Metropolitan police chief, revealed separately last night that up to 3,000 British-born or British-based people had passed through Osama Bin Laden’s training camps.

    The Whitehall dossier, ordered by Tony Blair following last year’s train bombings in Madrid, says: “Extremists are known to target schools and colleges where young people may be very inquisitive but less challenging and more susceptible to extremist reasoning/ arguments.”

    The confidential assessment, covering more than 100 pages of letters, papers and other documents, forms the basis of the government’s counter-terrorism strategy, codenamed Operation Contest.

    It paints a chilling picture of the scale of the task in tackling terrorism. Drawing on information from MI5, it concludes: “Intelligence indicates that the number of British Muslims actively engaged in terrorist activity, whether at home or abroad or supporting such activity, is extremely small and estimated at less than 1%.”

    This equates to fewer than 16,000 potential terrorists and supporters out of a Muslim population of almost 1.6m.

    The dossier also estimates that 10,000 have attended extremist conferences. The security services believe that the number who are prepared to commit terrorist attacks may run into hundreds.

    Most of the Al-Qaeda recruits tend to be loners “attracted to university clubs based on ethnicity or religion” because of “disillusionment with their current existence”. British-based terrorists are made up of different ethnic groups, according to the documents.

    China Daily reports Iranian cleric blamed the United States and Israel for the development of the al-Qaida, terming the terror group as "US-Israeli illegitimate child"

    This is front page center of CHINA DAILY. Imagine the meetings between these gross violators of human rights, oh how they conspire against greatness................they make me sick

    Top Iranian cleric blames al-Qaida growth on US, IsraelChinairannuke_1

    A top Iranian cleric on Friday blamed the United States and Israel for the development of the al-Qaida, terming the terror group as "US-Israeli illegitimate child," the official IRNA news agency reported.

    "Al-Qaida is the illegitimate child of the United States and Israel," Mohammad Emami-Kashani, Interim Friday Prayer Leader of Tehran, was quoted as saying when addressing thousands of worshipers.

    Kashani made the remarks in reaction to British Prime Minister Tony Blair's condemnation against the al-Qaida on Thursday's terror bombings in London.

    "Has the British prime minister forgotten who al-Qaida's parents are? I remind him then that the United States is al-Qaida's father and Israel is the mother of that illegitimate child," Kashani said.

    "It was you yourselves (the Westerners) that created this group in the name of Islam," Kashani added.

    The terrorist plot to destroy democracy from within

    Excellent analysis of the barbarian's strategy from William Saletan over at Slate

    Britain is burning with fear and terror, from north to south, east to west," the SecretLaden_monster_4 Organization of al-Qaida in Europe crowed after yesterday's London bombings. "We warned the British government and the British people repeatedly."

    In a video released four weeks after the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Osama Bin Laden boasted, "Here is the United States. It was filled with terror from its north to its south and from its east to its west."

    A fourth [pattern] is the punishment theme, which deflects blame from them to us. But the most telling pattern is a constant distinction between the "people" of the West and their governments. Last year, the bombers hit Madrid, hoping to turn Spaniards against their government and force a pullout of Spanish troops from Iraq. It worked.  Now they're trying to do the same to the Brits and the rest of the G8.

    In April 2002, al-Qaida took credit for bombing a Tunisian synagogue. It said the attack was in part "a reprisal for [Arab] governments' refusal to allow their peoples to launch jihad against the Jews." In October 2002, al-Qaida claimed responsibility for blowing up an oil tanker in Yemen. It charged that the U.S. government and its allies had "deluded themselves and their people." A month later, Bin Laden touted "the killing of Germans in Tunisia and the French in Karachi, the bombing of the giant French tanker in Yemen, the killing of marines in [Kuwait] and the British and Australians in the Bali explosions, the recent operation in Moscow." He asked citizens of these countries, "What do your governments want from their alliance with America in attacking us in Afghanistan?"

    Five months later, after the attacks in Spain, al-Qaida demanded, "The people of the U.S. allied countries have to put pressure on their governments to immediately end their alliance with the U.S."

    In April 2004, Bin Laden told Europeans, "Vigilant people do not allow their politicians to tamper with their security" by pursuing policies that provoke al-Qaida attacks. "Injustice is inflicted on us and on you by your politicians, who send your sons, although you are opposed to this, to our countries to kill and to get killed," he said. "Therefore, it is in both sides' interest to check the plans of those who shed the blood of peoples for their narrow personal interest and subservience to the White House gang." Bin Laden even cited "opinion polls, which indicate that most European peoples want peace." A month later, his point man in Iraq, Abu Musab al Zarqawi, took credit for wounding an Iraqi official. The attack "conveyed a strong political message to Washington's allies," he bragged. "Such operations have a destructive effect on the psychology and morale of the enemy soldiers inside and on their relatives and peoples outside."

    Now comes the message to "the British people" that "the British government" has brought more death on them. It's Blair's fault. It's Bush's fault. Turn against them, and the pain will stop. But it won't. As yesterday's message made clear, the bombers want us out of Afghanistan as well as Iraq.

    Bin Laden's whole game plan is to turn the people of the democratic world against their governments. He thinks democracies are weak because their people, who are more easily frightened than their governments, can bring those governments down. He doesn't understand that this flexibility—and this trust—are why democracies will live, while he will die. Many of us didn't vote for Bush's government or Blair's. But we're loyal to them, in part because we were given a voice in choosing them. And if we don't like our governments, we can vote them out. We can't vote out terrorists. We can only kill them.

    Please NO intense media focus on the terrorists' supposed grievances

    Camera makes an important point.........don't feed the blob

    Blob_1Our heartfelt sympathy and prayers go to the people of London who have today experienced a wave of terrorist attacks.  Such barbarism is indefensible, and groups that use such inhumane tactics should be utterly shunned and repudiated by the world community with minimal attention given to their "frustrations" and allegations.

    In the past, terrorist attacks against civilian targets in the U.S., Spain, Israel, Bali and Iraq have often been followed by intense media focus on the terrorists' supposed grievances (e.g. "Why do they hate us?") and on the terrorists' demands. The media have, in effect, directed the world's attention to exactly what the terrorists want to be the center of attention.  The
      suffering of the victims is often covered intensively at the time of the attack but relatively little beyond that.


    ACTION ITEM


    Please contact members of the media and urge them to report on what the terrorists would leastPen like to see publicized: the bigotry, extremism and incitement that drives the terrorists, the hate-indoctrination pervasive in extremist mosques and Islamist schools throughout the world, including England...positive stories about the strength of pluralism in Israel and the U.S....reports about Afghanis and Iraqis praising the improvements brought by the coalition forces...Israeli Arabs praising Israel's democracy...stories about women's rights (or lack thereof) in Arab and Muslim societies...Remind people what Al Qaeda's ideal society is -- a repressive, brutal, misogynist society such as the formerly Taliban-led Afghanistan. 

    Terrorism should cease to be a successful ticket to free -- and deferential -- publicity. 
    Please provide a model for the media and others to follow.  Call in to a radio show...write a letter to the editor expressing your sympathy for the British people, your disgust with the terrorists and their tactics, and then comment on one of the above topics.  Don't mention the terrorists' supposed grievances; simply write about something that is counter to their goals.  Media addresses are below.

    TheWorld Must Have One Unified Unambiguous Stand Against Terror- TOTAL WAR

    MEDIA DISMANTLES PA COMMITMENTS

    From Honest Reporting

    As London reels from today's attacks, and Israel continues with its painful Gaza withdrawal, observers are increasingly concerned about the day after 'disengagement' ― will Gaza become one big terrorist haven?

     

     

    Abbas committing to the roadmap
    'without any reservations' in
    Aqaba, Jordan, July 2003

    Unfortunately, the Palestinian Authority has done almost nothing to prevent this scenario, violating its signed commitment under the 2003 roadmap to 'dismantle terrorist capabilities and infrastructure', while actually inviting Hamas into the halls of power. (Hamas turned down the offer.)

    The western media, meanwhile, has completely failed to publicize that the PA has reneged on its commitment to dismantle terrorism. HonestReporting has previously noted isolated cases of this (here and here), but such reframing has reached a new level. It's now become standard practice across all major media outlets to present the PA's obligation to forcefully confront terrorist groups as a mere 'Israel demand' or 'Israeli and American demand' ― for example:

    Associated Press (July 3): 'The invitation to the Islamic groups is part of an effort by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas to co-opt them instead of disarming them as Israel and the U.S. have demanded.'

    Reuters (July 5): 'Israel and the United States have demanded Abbas disarm and dismantle militant groups as part of a US-backed 'road map' to peace and a Palestinian state in Gaza and the West Bank.'

    AFP (July 5): 'Abbas has so far resisted Israeli pressure to disarm factions such as Hamas.'

    New York Times (July 4): 'While Abbas seeks to co-opt Hamas and other armed factions, Israel says he should be confronting the groups.'

      *    *   *

    An editorial in today's (July 7) Washington Times indicates that the problem isn't a lack of PA potential:

    Lt. Gen. William Ward, the American soldier who four months ago was tasked with the responsibility to help the Palestinians rebuild their security forces..  told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that only about 22,000 of the 58,000 persons in the [PA] security forces actually bother to show up for work. But on paper, even 22,000 security officers should be quite capable of taking on Hamas and the other rejectionist groups. One reason the security forces have failed so badly, Palestinian Interior Minister Nasser Youssef candidly told the Palestinian Legislative Council recently, is that they include terrorists and gangsters responsible for creating the lawlessness that has enveloped the West Bank and Gaza.

    The road map is an international agreement put forth jointly by the United States, European Union, United Nations, and Russia ― and signed by the Palestinian Authority. When journalists shift the obligation from a Palestinian commitment and international obligation to a mere 'Israeli demand' or a joint US-Israeli project, they become, in effect, complicit in the PA's effort to shirk its own all-important commitments.

    HonestReporting encourages subscribers to monitor your local media for 'dismantling' of official PA commitments to confront terrorist groups.

    PROPHET OF DECLINE

    Oriana Fallaci faces jail. In her mid-70s, stricken with a cancer that, for the moment, permits only theOriana consumption of liquids--so yes, we drank champagne in the course of a three-hour interview--one of the most renowned journalists of the modern era has been indicted by a judge in her native Italy under provisions of the Italian Penal Code which proscribe the "vilipendio," or "vilification," of "any religion admitted by the state."

    In her case, the religion deemed vilified is Islam, and the vilification was perpetrated, apparently, in a book she wrote last year--and which has sold many more than a million copies all over Europe--called "The Force of Reason." Its astringent thesis is that the Old Continent is on the verge of becoming a dominion of Islam, and that the people of the West have surrendered themselves fecklessly to the "sons of Allah." So in a nutshell, Oriana Fallaci faces up to two years' imprisonment for her beliefs--which is one reason why she has chosen to stay put in New York. Let us give thanks for the First Amendment.

    Critical Background data on those of you following World war IV:
    Jordan Frees Spiritual Mentor of Qaeda's Zarqawi
    - Suleiman al-Khalidi
    A Muslim cleric who molded the militant Islamic views of al-Qaeda ally Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, sworn foe of U.S. forces in Iraq, has been freed from prison in Jordan, Islamist and security sources said Monday. Issam al-Barqawi, better known as Sheikh Abu Mohammad al-Maqdisi, 43, was released on June 28 after a six-month detention following his acquittal at a trial of Jordanian and Saudi sympathizers of al-Qaeda. "Maqdisi now has an ability to move more freely and reach out to his followers. This could pose a security risk and galvanize fundamentalists, especially since Zarqawi remains at large," said one official. Both Maqdisi and Zarqawi were freed by the Jordanians in 1999 under a general amnesty issued by King Abdullah. (Reuters) [it is Atlas' fervent prayer that they murder this sumabitch upon release - but hey that's just me - Atlas]

    Following the liberation of Kuwait in 1991, the Kuwaiti government expelled 250,000 Palestinians who had Jordanian citizenship, many of them teachers and other professionals. Among the returnees were also some who belonged to the Jihad movement, headed by Issam al-Barqawi, who acquired the name of Sheikh Abu Muhammad al-Maqdisi and became the spiritual teacher of this movement in Jordan.
        One of the most prominent clandestine organizations established in Jordan was Tawheed (Monotheism), later renamed Bay'at al-Imam. It was founded by al-Maqdisi in 1992 and joined by al-Zarqawi in 1993. In 1994, Jordanian security services uncovered weapons in the possession of these two men. Al-Zarqawi adheres to the strictest version of Islam - Saudi Arabia's Wahhabism. (MEMRI)

    in the time that Natalee Holloway has been missing, there have been at least 110 acts of Islamic terrorism in 12 different countries.  At least 618 have been killed with at least 1171 injured.  All this in just a little over a month.  At this rate, Islamofascists are on a pace to slaughter another 6000 innocent people in the name of religion in just one 12-month period.  With over 13,000 injured.  And these are just publicly acknowledged and reported terrorist acts.  Sudan isn't even included.  Sudan is simply considered "acts of violence."

    SHOCKA!Sudan Will Never Submit to War Crimes Inquiry

    Is it possible that these folks are stalling on war crimes investigations?

    Sudan stalling over war crimes inquiry, United Nations told

    SUDAN is dragging its feet over co-operating with Darfur war crimes investigations, the chief prosecutor of the International Criminal Court (ICC) told the United Nations yesterday.

    are the same folks recruting babies into the military, the worst kind of child abuse?
    SUDAN: Southern forces still recruiting children

    NYAL, 1 July (IRIN) - Twelve-year old Riek Torgom, wearing an oversized army uniform and carrying a gun that appeared too heavy for him to lift, was among 50 child soldiers undergoing training at Majak military centre, western Upper Nile State in southern Sudan.

    Unbelievable..........and whats the International Crimes Court doing? The circle jerk with Milosevic...........he was arrested in 2001 mind you, and he's a bloody animal

    THE HAGUE, Monday: Disgraced former Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic has brushed off against charges for war crimes against humanity and mass genocide. Milosevic_large

    "Look, I'm not to blame. I only issued the orders. You should talk to the people who carried them out."

    "If you follow the logic that I'm guilty of war crimes, then, hell, Hitler and Pol Pot would be liable as well."

    In other words, the international community is hopeless, and this is who sKerry, Killer Kerry, Putrid Pelosi, Wretched Reid would like us to subjugate ourselves to.......oy

    I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaack

    Wont spend too much time on the Paris thing but there are a couple of notable items.
    First off they are in complete denial. The parts of Paris I visited were like stepping into the twilight zone............not a muslim in sight, very white, smatherings of international colour and very "retro"..........you'd never know the world was at war.Img_0287_1

    Sort of like walking inot the 1950s. They have no clue that they are being devoured by radical islam (as a matter of fact they deny that it could even possibly happen), they think Chirac is a fool (out of his league and not at all up for the job), love De Villepen,  think  Bush lied ("if he didn't lie we would have sent troops in a second"), of course I refuted every contention of "lie with fact  I am  telling you total denial. Crazy almost.

    They were eager to discuss these things and were quite decent in their verbal exchanges, very eager  to understand America's thinking. And when I explained the Bush Doctrine and that I loved Bush, they did not wince. They call the relationship with America "a love affair" and with all love affairs there will be fights and disagreements..............I am telling you complete denial.

    Img_0294The Jewish quarter is alive and thriving, very religious, orthodox. I could not go into the synogogues (see sign on the left on the front doors of the synogogues) or Jewish day schools as security as elevated there (as it should be)  because the Paris that surrounds them thinks the sun is shining and it's all going to be fine - denial, major denial......... Honestly I wish those Jews weren't there.

    Will write more later but wanted to let you know I was alive and well..............shocked to find that Sandra Day O'Connor actually stole airtime on FOX from the missing blond story - but only for a moment........

    The thought of a Bush Supreme Court pick is wildly excting. I cheered on the way home from JFK when I heard...............oh yeah, very hard to get real news over there (so what else is new? had no internet access).

    Anyway I sooooooooo missed the blogosphere and I love Trey over at Jackson's Junction for covering for me and holding down the fort...............will be doing an extensive post over at his site as soon as typepad fixes their problems.......I can't access his website.

    And if he you haven't congratulated that fine young man on hitting the 1,000,000 mark then shame on you. I am honored to work with such talent, brave, ballsy, and smart. My kinda man.

    It was the first time I didn't blog for months and frankly I hated it.

    Meanwhile back on the planet earth Jack Wheeler's To The Point writes an excellent piece on what is really happening in the soft decaying underbelly of French dhimmitude.

    EUROPE’S ISLAMIST FUTURE IS NOW
    Guest Author by Alex Alexiev

    The result of an extensive research and five months of field interviews in numerous schools in 20 French provinces by a distinguished group of French educators should be sobering for anyone who values European civilization.

    The report documents the extensive Islamization of French schools in the vicinity of Moslem ghettoes and the imposition of strict conformity with Islamist dictates through violence and intimidation.

    Having by and large completed their takeover of the Moslem ghettoes, often by “targeted violence” against non-Moslems and moderate Moslems alike, the Islamist fanatics are making great progress towards achieving control of the educational system as well.

    This is not just France’s problem. The same phenomenon of large numbers of angry young Moslems who totally reject European civilization is easily observable in virtually every large urban center across the EU.

    Still stinging over the missed opportunity to join Dr. Wheeler's contingent to the MORU ROCKS,French_time_bomb SERENGETI PLAINS, TANZANIA, AFRICA but had to get my kids off to sleepaway so that's that.
    I will go next year.

    Symposium: Muslims in France: A Ticking Time Bomb?

    And over at FrontPageMag Symposium: Muslims in France: A Ticking Time Bomb? France’s Muslim population is exploding and fundamentalist Islam is gaining control over it. French society remains almost completely oblivious. Does this phenomenon entail a ticking time bomb? What consequences does it pose to the West? What lessons is it teaching? To discuss these issues with Frontpage Symposium today, we are joined by a distinguished panel. Go over to the link and read the symposium.........

    'My dream was to be a suicide bomber. I wanted to kill 20, 50 Jews. Yes, even babies'

    This is what we are up against, this is what we are attempting to reason with, negotiate with, "make whole"....................it aint good. I ran a piece on this human filth earlier in the week focusing on how the enemy exploits the kindness of Israeli society to commit acts of terror, and how that startling revelation is virtually ignored by the MSM.
    In this article meet the lowlife behind the evil............

    'My dream was to be a suicide bomber. I wanted to kill 20, 50 Jews. Yes, even babies'
    By Manuela Dviri in Tel Aviv

    When a soldier asked her to remove her long, dark cloak, she turned to face him. All her movements were taped by the military surveillance camera at the checkpoint: calmly, deliberately, she took off her clothing, item by item, until she looked like any normal young woman in T-shirt and jeans. It was then that she tried to set off the belt containing 20lb of explosives hidden beneath her trousers. To her horror, she did not succeed. Desperate, she clawed at her face, screaming. She was still alive, she realised. She had failed her martyrdom mission.

    That afternoon, on June 21, the 21-year-old, Wafa Samir al-Biss, was brought before the press by Israeli intelligence. Her neck and hands were covered with scars caused by a kitchen gas explosion six months earlier. The ugly scars - which had been treated in a hospital in Israel - had probably helped turn her into the perfect would-be huriia (virgin), the ideal martyr, since they would make it difficult for her to find a suitable husband.

    According to the Israeli doctor who attended Wafa at the Soroka Hospital in Beersheba, she received blood transfusions during her treatment. "I told her, with a laugh, that now she has Jewish blood in her veins," he said, adding sadly that she had "seemed so nice - we got a lovely thank you letter from her family.''

    Wafa had been sent on her mission by the Abu Rish Brigade, the small militant faction with links to Fatah. She did not, she said later, regret it, though she stressed that her decision had had nothing to do with her scarring. "My dream was to be a martyr. I believe in death," she said. "Today I wanted to blow myself up in a hospital, maybe even in the one in which I was treated. But since lots of Arabs come to be treated there, I decided I would go to another, maybe the Tel Hashomer, near Tel Aviv. I wanted to kill 20, 50 Jews …''

    The More Things Change the More They Stay the Same and Abused Children become Bloody Murderers

    Pali_childabuse1970_3 Yesterday June 1970

    Today June 2005

    PA Television Continues to Teach Children to Become "Martyrs" Arab Press

    The Palestinian Authority continues to promote “martyrdom” in its state-produced children’s television programs, according to a report by Palestinian Media Watch (PMW).

    Shahada, or death for Allah, has been the backbone of the Palestinian Authority's messages to its children since the start of the terror war in September 2000," states the Wednesday report. "Although the number of these messages has been reduced in recent months, the promotion and glorification of child Shahada continues nonetheless, as seen this week on PA TV.”

    The report cites a broadcast of a PA TV series named “The Palestinian Diaspora.” The series is presented daily as a factual portrayal of history. Though throughout the series, Israel's creation and ongoing existence have been presented as injustices that must be fought, this past week’s episode honed in on the issue of child martyrdom.

    Click here to view the clip from the show

    This week’s episode, set in 1956, shows Arabs mourning Israel's existence. A 12-year-old refugee is shown reading his uncle a story he wrote.

    “The scene has two explicit messages,” write PMW’s Itamar Marcus and Barbara Crook. “[They are:] A child should be willing and anxious to fight and die in order to destroy Israel, [and that] Arab 'refugees' can never resettle, but must 'return' to Israel.”

    An excerpt from the clip, broadcast on PA TV on June 16:

    [The scene opens with the 12-year-old boy's friend writing, "I shall return" over a map he drew of “Palestine,” covering all of Israel]

    12-year-old Arab Boy: "His mother cried and said, 'My son! Swear to me! Don't leave me alone…! I'm afraid you will be killed.'

    "Her son said to her, 'Don't cry, my mother! Let me go and fight for the sake of the homeland. The enemy stole our beautiful land… We all must fight in order to redeem the lost paradise… We lived in joy and happiness, until the foreign enemy [Israel] came and expelled us from our land, and we became refugees in tents. But we will return, by Allah's will!'

    "His mother told him, 'Farewell, my son. Allah be with you.' He kissed her and left to fight, and fought until he became a Shahid [martyr for Allah]."

    The Boy’s Uncle: "...Let me ask you, if they come and tell you, ‘we will give you a very big house, a car, land and money, just resettle!’ Would you agree?"

    Boy: "No!"

    Uncle: "...the homeland is greater than individual possessions."

    The Back Story should be the FRONT story: Palestinians Attempt to Exploit Those in Need of Medical Treatment

    Aryeh sends me this link (excellent blog  btw, on why Abu Mazzan should be arrested).
    and then Aryeh assumes correctly:

    I assume that you've  heard, but in case you haven't, a 21 year old youngFailed_bomber Palestinian woman who was being admitted to Israel so that Israeli doctors could treat her for serious burns all over her body (as a result of a home accident), decided to repay their generosity by bringing the Israeli army 20 pounds of ammunition. She strapped this gift to her body and intended to blow herself up with as many civilians as she could.

    Now she's under arrest which is a shame for her becuase if she had succeeded in blowing herself up there'd no doubt be a street sign bearing her name andmaybe even a soccer team named after her.  By now Amnesty International would be condemning the barbaric Israelis who could allow a young woman to be driven tothis ghoulish behavior.  After all, it is our fault,right

    Female Palestinian Suicide Bomber Planned to Blow Up Israeli Hospital

  • Wafa al-Bas, 21, arrested on Monday at a Gaza checkpoint, planned to blow herself up in an Israeli hospital. Israeli officials said Bas was burned in a cooking accident five months ago and had received treatment on humanitarian grounds at Beersheba hospital. She was making another trip for follow-up treatment but planned to blow herself up instead. In an interview shown on Israeli television, Bas said her "dream was to be a martyr." She said she was recruited by the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades - an off-shoot of Palestinian leader Abbas' Fatah faction. Later, she pleaded for mercy because she "didn't kill anyone."  (BBC)
        The Shin Bet received a tip that Fatah was planning to send Bas on a suicide mission via one of the Gaza Strip crossings. Israel gave the PA and Chairman Mahmoud Abbas detailed information of the plan, but the PA did nothing. (Ha'aretz)
        Security forces were alerted when the biometric screener at the terminal crossing revealed that Bas was wearing 10 kilograms of explosives. She then attempted several times to detonate the explosives but failed. She said she had intended to blow up in a "crowded area in the hospital." A senior Israeli security official pointed out that human rights groups have criticized Israel in the past for carrying out inspections on Palestinians requiring medical treatment in Israel. (Jerusalem Post)
        See also Palestinians Attempt to Exploit Those in Need of Medical Treatment (Ministry of Foreign Affairs)
  • This is the real news. The ignored, swept under the bloody rug news. The Amnesty International, UN, Eyrabia, calling Israelis Nazis, news. The real story for you isPalestinians Attempt to Exploit Those in Need of Medical Treatment.

    Please for a moment..............sit back, close your eyes inhale through your nostrils and think about this  irrefutable truth. And then think about what you read in the papers and see on the alphabets (abc,cBS, commienewsnetwork etc.)

    THIS IS THE FIGHT BOILED DOWN TO IT'S ESSENTIAL OILS.......................>

    Islamic COMIC BOOK

    There really is an Islam Comic Book – and you have got to read it. You can order your very own copy on the Islam Comic Book website, which has a number of pages online. Here’s the cover:

    Islam_comic_1


    It’s hilarious, heretical, and all based on actual quotes from the Koran and the Hadith, the officially recognized sayings of Mohammed.

     

    It refuses to kow-tow to the Islamic claim that it’s blasphemous to draw a picture of Mohammed – as you can see by the cover. It’s as educational as it is entertaining. You’ll learn that Mohammed was terrified of solar eclipses, thought Satan sleeps in people’s noses, claimed that Allah won’t hear your prayers if you have bad breath, had head lice, and taught that the suns sets in a muddy pool at night.

    EMP: The Ultimate WMD

    "The electromagnetic fields produced by weapons designed and deployed with   the intent to produce EMP have a high likelihood of damaging electrical power systems, electronics, and information systems upon which Americansociety depends. Their effects on dependent systems and infrastructures could be sufficient to qualify as catastrophic to the nation.Wmd_web_3

    If it seems incredible that a single weapon could have such an extraordinarily destructive effect, consider the nature and repercussions of the three distinct components of an electromagnetic pulse: fast, medium and slow. The “fast component” is essentially an “electromagnetic shock-wave” that can temporarily or permanently disrupt the functioning of electronic devices.  In twenty-first century America, such devices are virtually
    everywhere, including in controls, sensors, communications equipment, protective systems, computers, cell phones, cars and airplanes.  The extent of the damage induced by this component of EMP, which occurs virtually simultaneously over a very large area, is determined by the altitude of the explosion.

    The “medium-speed component” of EMP covers roughly the same geographic area as the “fast” one, although the peak power level of its electrical shock would be far lower.  Since it follows the “fast component” by a small fraction of a second, however, the medium-speed component has the potential to do extensive damage to systems whose protective and control
    features have been impaired or destroyed by the first onslaught.

    If the first two EMP components were not bad enough, there is a third one—a “slow component” resulting from the expansion of the explosion’s fireball in the Earth’s magnetic field.  It is this “slow component”—a pulse that lasts tens of seconds to minutes—which creates disruptive currents in electricity transmission lines, resulting in damage to electrical supply and distribution systems connected to such lines.  Just as the second component compounds the destructive impact of the first, the fact that the third follows on the first two ensures significantly greater damage to power grids and related infrastructure.

    The EMP Threat Commission estimates that, all other things being equal, it may take “months to years” to bring such systems fully backonline. Here is how it depicts the horrifying ripple effect of thesustained loss of electricity on contemporary American society:

    "Depending on the specific characteristics of the attacks, unprecedented cascading failures of our major infrastructures could result. In that event, a regional or national recovery would be long and difficult and would seriously degrade the safety and overall viability of our nation. The primary avenues for catastrophic damage to the nation are through our electric power infrastructure and thence into our telecommunications, energy, and other infrastructures.

    "These, in turn, can seriously impact other important aspects of our nation’ s life, including the financial system; means of getting food, water, andmedical care to the citizenry; trade; and production of goods and services."

    Check the link and see Gaffney's article for the rest. Sobering and very scary.

    This month, Frank Gaffney talks about the EMP disaster terrorists could inflict on us.

    Saudi Expert: Al-Qaida Plans 'Catastrophic' Attack

    NewsMax.com

    Al-Qaida is far from being neutralized and is planning its next "catastrophic" attack, according to a top expert on the terrorist organization.

    Dr. Saad al-Faqih, who heads the Saudi opposition group Movement for Islamic Reform in Arabia, was asked in an interview in London if there is any credence to reports of al-Qaida's "demise." His response was chilling: "Nobody knows how al-Qaida really works. Consider, for instance, that the time lapse between the Africa embassy bombings and 9/11 was more than three years. Therefore the fact that no major attack has taken place since 9/11 is not altogether very surprising.

    "Al-Qaida is an extremely resilient organization and it will most likely surprise everybody by how, when and where it executes its next catastrophic attack."

    Asked when a weapons of mass destruction attack is likely to take place, Dr. al-Faqih said: "It could happen at any time."

    The al-Qaida expert told interviewer Mahan Abedin - an editor with the Jamestown Foundation's publication Terrorism Monitor - that the terrorist organization's operations in Saudi Arabia have been severely damaged by government offensives.

     

    "But of course al-Qaida is an ideology and its potency cannot be reduced to the number of men in its ranks," he cautioned.

    New Orleans Police to be trained in sensitivity by Nation of IslamFarrakhan1

    Jihadwatch.org

    The security chief for Nation of Islam leader Louis Farrakhan has been hired to provide sensitivity training for the NOPD. Captain Dennis Muhammad has conducted sensitivity training in other cities such as Buffalo and will be paid $15,000 for his services, which NOPD Chief Eddie Compass says are needed in New Orleans. Compass says there are people in New Orleans who have complained about police treatment and are "anti police." Compass believes that the "members of the Nation of Islam have some type of relationship with these people."

    HitlertalarHowever, what about those in the community and on the NOPD who are not members of the Nation of Islam? David Benelli of the Police Association of New Orleans says his phone has "been ringing off the hook" with members upset about the hiring of someone with ties to the Nation of Islam. The NOPD is 45% white, while the city is about 30% non-black, so there is a large number of people who might feel insulted by this decision. However, not only should whites be outraged about the selection of this Nation of Islam leader to conduct sensitivity training, but also all African-Americans in the community who are of the Catholic or Jewish faiths.

    At the press conference announcing the training, a rabbi and priest expressed concern about Muhammad's selection. Such concern is more than justified considering the history of Muhammad's boss, Louis Farrakhan. Here are just a few of the Nation of Islam's beliefs, as well as some of Farrakhan's disturbing statements:

     

    * Whites are "blue eyed devils."

     

    * Jews are "bloodsuckers"

     

    * "Hitler was a very great man."

     

    * Jews controlled the slave trade and currently control the government

     

    * Nation of Islam founder Elijah Muhammad believed that whites were created by an evil Black scientist and that there will be "The Great Decisive Battle in the Sky" when a space ship will kill all white people by bombing the earth

     

    * Muhammad believed that white people should relocate to Europe and that racial integration was wrong

    In addition, Farrakhan has met with dictators in Sudan, Libya and Iraq, before the war, and praised their governments while denouncing the United States. Leaders in the Nation of Islam have also made very inflammatory anti-Catholic statements. In a November 1993 speech at Kean College in New Jersey, Farrakhan's chief spokesman Khallid Muhammad said, "The old no-good Pope-you know that cracker, somebody need to raise that dress up and see what's really under there. Jesus was right; you're nothing but liars. The book of Revelations is right; you're from the Synagogue of Satan."

    UPDATE Woo HOO!

    Chalk one up for the good guys:

    Insensitivity 101" Canceled (update)

    This morning the New Orleans Times-Picayune is reporting that the contract between Louis Farrakhan's security chief, Dennis Muhammad, and the New Orleans Police Department, in which Muhammad was to conduct sensitivity training for the department, has been canceled. Staff writers Steve Ritea and Bruce Nolan wrote:

    "The announcement came after a barrage of criticism from local religious leaders concerned by comments from Farrakhan, who once called Judaism a `dirty religion' and has preached racial separatism."

    "`You can't get a happy and successful result from a foundation of bigotry and rot. He has absolutely no credibility to stand in front of our community and do sensitivity training, because he is, by definition, insensitive,' Rabbi Ed Cohn of Temple Sinai said before learning the contract would be rescinded."

    "Lt. David Benelli, president of the Police Association of New Orleans, said officers of all ranks, races and religions immediately began voicing `outrage and disgust' about the decision to hire Muhammad after getting word of the plan Friday."

    "`It was the most outraged I've seen my membership in a long time,' he said. `I think Compass heard that . . . and I appreciate the fact that he listened and took action."

    Iranian Women Defy Authorities, Demand Freedom and Risk Death

    Iranian_freedom_2
    For those of you who have been reading me since this blog's inception (conception, really), I have been a huge proponent of those fighting for freedom despite the cost.
    The women of Iran at GREAT RISK are demonstrating and screaming for their lives. Literally.

    Some women crossed their faces with their fists to depict voiceless women as a list of demands were read.

    "These women don't care anymore. They have had it!" one man, voicing his support of the protestors, shouted at police. "Imagine being held back for so long - what's the worst they are going to do to them? Prison? They don't care," he said.

    The female demonstrators fearlessly spoke out against the regime.

    The  mullahs are killing their own people in the run up to their corrupt election and still the people fight. This is the real reason the Iranians government will pursue nukes at any cost, to keep their own people enslaved (AP video). In today's NewYork Sun, New York's Next Great Iconic Newspaper, the erudite Eli Lake writes of the bombing;

    An Arab separatist group known as the Popular Democratic Front for Ahvaz said in a statement that an unknown group called the Ahvazi Revolutionary Martyrs' Brigades was behind the attacks, according to Reuters. Iranian government spokesmen yesterday, however, said the bombings were the work of a violent opposition group labeled terrorists by the State Department, the People's Mujahadin Organization. More than 2,000 of its members are under custody at Camp Ashraf in Iraq under the supervision of American soldiers

    Such bullshit! They change their terror group names as often as I change my La Perla undies (I am pyjamadeen after all). >

    And here once again the bloggers fight endlessly for freedom>

    ;There have been many violent acts against regime people and regime symbols like mosques and government buildings largely unreported except by the bloggers," an American Enterprise Institute scholar, Michael Ledeen, said yesterday. "This could be anything from Potemkin attacks staged by the regime itself, to real attacks by enemies of the regime. Nobody that I know knows the answer."strong>

    The wild thing is this is all happening on the net. Yes it's the bloggers call to freedom inside and out of Iran........... Internet boom alters political process in Iran.
    The MSM ignores the real news and instead gives the beheaders, the Iraqi terrorists, Gitmo lies, Abu Gharib nonsense and the irrelevant Fwench all of their airtime.G-d forbid they say anything positive about the Bush Doctrine and the worldwide cries for freedom. It is so much dirt under their shoe. Well get your shoe off Freedom's face!
     

    TEHRAN, Iran - Hundreds of women of all ages gathered yesterday at Tehran University to demand freedom and an end to gender discrimination in Iran.>

    Days before Iranians head to the polls Friday to cast their ballots in a national election, the protesters, who lacked official permission to demonstrate, defied police to make a historic plea for equal rights. This week's presidential election is widely expected to bring victory to a cleric and former president, hard-liner Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, 70.

    The women forced their way past Tehran University's main gate and badge-wearing security guards. Riot squads attempted to prevent demonstrators from entering at various points around the campus's perimeter, but were unable to stop the crowd from pouring in. The women paid no heed to either police or plainclothes officers recording the action on digital video.

    "These women don't care anymore. They have had it!" one man, voicing his support of the protestors, shouted at police. "Imagine being held back for so long - what's the worst they are going to do to them? Prison? They don't care," he said.

    A Mexican Jihad?.......SEAL THE EFFING BORDERS NOW!

    What is going to take?............1000 deaths, 5000 deaths (nah 9/11 didn't do it),10,000 deaths, 50,000 deaths, 100,000?   How many? How many until all Americans are on the same page? This is the Republican party's Achilles heal...........should an attack occur and the evidence shows border negligence they will lose 2008, hands down. If the  Democrats seize this issue, they could end run the Republicans (but the dhemmis don't have the cujones, they need all those illegal aliens voting for them.)I did a cross post on this for Lance at RedStateRant on behalf of the Cotillion..

    Yes we need these workers for our farms, our homes (remember Zoe Baird, Kimba Woods, Bernie Kerik - although that was the least of his problems), restaurants etc. FINE! Come up with a program, yes a guest worker program................make them pay taxes, give them a deadline to come forward and then BASTA!
    Seal those goddamn borders and deport every illegal that didn't come clean.

    A Mexican jihad?
    Growing threat of terror from south of border © 2005 G2 BulletinIllegal_alien_2

    News on the discovery of an "al-Qaida community" in Lodi, California, and the arrest of five suspects so far, did not come as a surprise to intelligence analysts monitoring Islamic Khalifat and jihad proliferation ambitions.

    Some say the Lodi affair strengthens suspicions of what could be an extremely large jihadi network in North America, suggesting the Lodi arrests reflect merely the tip of the iceberg.

    "South of the Rio Grande Valley there exists a dire situation,” says an intelligence researcher who took part in an academic meeting in west Canada. This expert and others belong to those who continue to warn that jihadi ideas are sprouting in Mexico almost without interference, nearing epidemic proportions in some communities.

    These sources agree that there is hardly any effective cooperation between the Department of Homeland Security and its many arms to the intelligence establishment of President Vicente Fox.

    An attempt to illustrate achievements of U.S.-Mexican cooperation in the war on terrorism reveals mere rhetorical diplomatic slogans lacking substance. Mexican organizations in charge of intelligence and counter-terrorism such as the Office of Coordination of the Presidency and the Center for Research on National Security, CISEN, show the agency and other police or military units do not do more than half-hearted monitoring of militant Islamic activity.

    Cover my Back Guys...They are coming after Publicizers of the Muslim US FLAG desecraters! Bwahahahhaha..........

    Here's an interesting update on my post of June 7th on the  Muslim video desecrating the flag from World Net Daily. If I don't believe in Allah then I must be safe, meantime watch my back fellas (from anyone that thinks he is Allah).

    Flag desecrators issue threat

    Urge Allah to 'give painful torment' to publicizers of video

    New York-based Muslims who desecrated the U.S. flag on a street corner issued aFlagdesecration_1 threat against Islam scholar Robert Spencer for publicizing their video of the event along with accusations of ties to foreign jihadists.

    As WorldNetDaily reported, the video shows members of the Islamic Thinkers Society declaring Islam's dominance over America as they tread on a U.S. flag and then rip it apart.

    The group, with alleged links to the British jihadist organization Al-Muhajiroun, said the demonstration was "in response to the desecration of the holy Quran by the Crusaders & Zionists at Guantanamo Bay," an allegation based on a retracted Newsweek story.

    A posting on the Islamic Thinkers Society website says:     May Allah s.w.t. help those who expose the Crusaders & Zionists and their dirty schemes. And may Allah s.w.t. continue to humiliate the enemies of Islam & Muslims. May Allah s.w.t. give painful torment to Robert Spencer and Grayson Levy who are waging an e-Crusade on us by publishing false information about us."

    Palis Won't Disarm and AID IRAQI TERRORISTS! So let's give them $350 million!

    WHAT DO THEY TAKE US FOR?

    APPEASERS! That's what they take us for!
    It is an insult that they continue to purport the same tired lies and expect us to feed at the trough of mendacity (did I just say that?)
    Kidwa, mishpacha to Yasser Arafat, said the Palestinian groups had the right to keep their weapons as long as the occupation continued..........it must be so empowering to say what you what, kill who you want, answer to no one, break any and all rules of any agreements, terrorize innocent Jews, fund and train Iraqi terrorists and GET RESPECT, EMPATHY AND LAND........I know I know, we take the moral high ground *SPIT*.

    Their problem is they mistake our kindness for schmuckiness............that too will come to an end.

    Palestinian Authority "Won't Disarm Gunmen until Occupation Ends" by Khaled Abu Toameh
    Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Nasser al-Kidwa (pictured, right) declared on Saturday that the PA had no intention of disarming Palestinian militias as demanded by the road map. Kidwa, a nephew of Yasser Arafat, said the Palestinian groups had the right to keep their weapons as long as the occupation continued. "Using arms under occupation is legal," he explained. Kidwa's statements stand in sharp contrast to promises made by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to confiscate "illegal" weapons from Palestinian groups and individuals. (Jerusalem Post)

    tell me why we are sending the Palis 350 million? to kill our boys?

    Palestinians aid Iraqi terrorists

    Rockets, explosives improvements shared with U.S. enemy

    Israeli military intelligence is collecting new information on the development of Palestinian weapon systems dubbed "the new age of Qassam rockets."

    Various Palestinian groups, including the Fatah's Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, the Islamic Jihad, The Islamic Movement – Hamas and the Tanzim, have improved the range of their Qassam surface-to-surface rockets and have developed special anti-armor explosive charges.

    Information about these developments was caught on the Internet including messages sent to jihadists in Iraq on how to destroy Abrams tanks, Bradley fighting vehicles and other U.S.-made armored personnel carriers.

    Some of the information comes from jihad supporters in Europe, predominantly in the U.K., but also from Islamic blog operators in North America.

    Israel deplores acquittal of suspects in Al-Qaeda-linked Kenya hotel bombing

    NAIROBI (AFP) - Israel has deplored a Kenyan court decision to acquit four Muslim men accused of murder in the 2002 Al-Qaeda-linked bombing of an Israeli-owned hotel.

    Omar Said Omar, a suspect in the 2002 Al-Qaeda-linked bombing of an Israeli-owned hotel near the southern city of Mombasa, pumps his fist after a Kenyan judge dismissed murder charges against four Kenyan men accused of the bombing

    Nairobi high court justice John Osiemo on Thursday said prosecutors had not proven the four were involved in the November 28, 2002 bombing of the Mombasa Paradise Hotel in which 18 people, including three Israeli tourists, 12 Kenyans and three suicide car bombers, were killed.

    Police immediately re-arrested one suspect whom the United States has expressed interest in questioning.

    GEORGE! Stop Selling Advanced Weaponry to the Arabs

    Hey George, I love you but your kidding on this one right? I mean really! Must we speed up the inevitable? Stop the mob delusion......enough already
    Israel to U.S. Stop Selling Advanced Weaponry to the Arabs
    MEMRI

    Maj.-Gen. Eliezer Shkaidi, commander of the Israeli Air Force,
    returned to Israel last week from an official visit to the U.S. where he
    told his American colleagues, "we are worried about the damage caused to
    Israel's qualitative military edge as a result of the newest arms sales to
    the Arabs.
    " Shkaidi also raised the deployment of Saudi F-15 warplanes at
    Tabuk Air Base (in northern Saudi Arabia) and said it constituted a threat
    to Israel. In speaking to the Americans, Shkaidi drew a distinction between
    the supply of offensive weaponry that represents a special threat, and
    defensive weaponry that is less problematic. Shkaidi argued that "advanced
    weapons systems allow a mediocre pilot with a mediocre platform to become a
    very effective threat."

    But but but.............they want PEACE, Religion of Peace

    It seems we (the free world) have given the jihadists enough time to rearm, demilitarize, resupply their splodydopes and are ready for the battle. BUILD THAT WALL ISRAEL O'ISRAEL! Lockdown and let the carpet bombing begin, do the world's dirty work. Bush and Condi, cannot, must not equivocate on this..............hey there's the  ticket for '08, Condi, Bush - anybody out there know if a President can run as Vice-President (bet he can't).

    Jihad Leader: "Calm" is Over - Khaled Abu Toameh and Arieh O'Sullivan
    The period of calm is over and the Palestinians should be prepared to resume their attacks on Israel, senior Gaza Islamic Jihad leader Khaled al-Batsh said Tuesday. Islamic Jihad was one of the few Palestinian groups that had refused to accept the tahdiah (calm) agreement that was reached in Cairo in February. (Jerusalem Post)

    Why haven't we extracted this shitty little dentist?

    Syrians Sustaining and Replenishing Hardest Core of Iraq Insurgency - Ghaith Abdul-Ahad
    A stream of fighters from Syria - most of them Syrians, but lately many of them Saudis - has sustained and replenished the hardest core of the Iraq insurgency, and supplied many of its suicide bombers. Nurtured by a militant interpretation of Islam, they insist they are fighting for their vision of their faith. Syrian smuggler Abu Ibrahim, who worked in Saudi Arabia for seven years, calls 9/11 "a great day. America was defeated."
        In Saudi Arabia, Abu Ibrahim heard about Abu Qaqaa, a charismatic Syrian religious sheikh who preached a radical version of Islam in Aleppo. "We were Wahhabis. Abu Qaqaa was preaching what we believed in." Returning to Aleppo, he became Abu Qaqaa's right-hand man. Two weeks after the attacks in New York and at the Pentagon, his group celebrated in public with a "festival," featuring video of hand-to-hand combat and training montages of guerrillas leaping from high walls. They called it "the Festival of America the Wounded Wolf." By 2002 the anti-American festivals were running twice weekly. Jihad was being allowed into the open. Abu Ibrahim said Syrian security officials and presidential advisers attended festivals, one of which was called "The People of Sham [an ancient name for the region] Will Now Defeat the Jews and Kill Them All." Money poured in from Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries.
        Abu Ibrahim credited Abu Musab Zarqawi with revitalizing the insurgency, especially since October, when he pledged fealty to Osama bin Laden. "Six months ago, Zarqawi and Osama bin Laden were different," he said. "Osama did not consider the killing of Shiites as legitimate. Zarqawi did that. Anyone - Christian, Jew, Sunni, Shiites - whoever cooperates with the Americans can be killed. It's a holy war." Recently, he said, his contacts in Iraq have said they were not in need of fighters, but money. He said he personally carried cash, provided by sympathetic Saudis, between Saudi Arabia and Syria. "Our brothers in Iraq are asking for Saudis," he said. "The Saudis go with enough money to support themselves and their Iraqi brothers." (Washington Post/Guardian-UK)

    Kazimi on the Saudi Mega Plot

    Wildly inquisitive questioning  informative piece by Nibras Kazimi on the Saudi Mega Plot in today's GREAT NEW YORK SUN. Mr. Kazimi is an Iraqi writer living in DC. He recently returned from a trip through the Middle East that included time in Lebanon. READ IT ALL
    Bush_hand_holding_1

    The Saudis appear to be sending out three seemingly contradictory messages: one to the Americans, another to their own internal extremists, and a third to the Syrian leadership. The Saudis are telling the Americans that they are going to help bring down the regime in Syria. They are telling the Wahhabis within Saudi Arabia that they are going to bring back a Sunni country into the fold and liberate it from the obscure, pseudo-Shiite Alawite regime currently in power. And they are telling these very same Alawis that this whole Bush vision for democracy threatens them both and that all they are up to is for show and that it should not be taken seriously.

    As it happens, all three messages seem to be sincere. The Saudis are indeed going to pull all the strings to bring down the Alawite regime in Syria, and then place a Sunni fundamentalist regime in place that will appease the Wahhabis and scare the hell out of the Americans. Bush may be striving for democratic change in Damascus, but what he will get in return is a bunch of crazies hostile to America, and there won't be an equivalent to Iraq's Sistani to curb them. The Saudis will then turn around and whisper in Bush's ear, "We told you that this whole democracy thing is a bad idea, now imagine who you'd have to deal with if we were pressured to change and our own oil-securing yet brittle regime is threatened?"

    Doesn't the scenario described above look very familiar to what happened throughout the 1980s in Afghanistan? Didn't the Saudis strike a deal with the Americans to fund the mujahedeen, defeat the Soviets, and establish the Taliban regime? Wasn't Pakistan the staging ground for that former mega-plot? At the time, the Saudis were threatened by both Soviet-supported Arab socialism and out-of-control Wahhabi fundamentalism, and the solution was simple: Give the Saudi crazies a project in faraway Kabul, become a global strategic ally of America, and humiliate the Russians. It worked, but left a mega-mess called the Taliban as a nasty and exceedingly dangerous by-product.

    Iran Sharpens it's Claws

    Iran is redoubling its malevolent efforts. You cannot tell me these bastards do not have  a plan to take over the Middle East (the world?) Kidnapping dissidents and  doubling uranium capacity...uh, helllooooooooooooo. Iran_ballistic_missiles

    In today's delicious, delectable New York Sun , New York's Next Great Iconic newspaper:

      ... uranium for nuclear reactors to high levels for weapons, either secretly or after withdrawing from the nonproliferation treaty. Iranian officials pledged Sunday to extend the voluntary suspension of enrichment until the end of July as part of negotiations with Germany, ...

    Iran Moves to Speed Up Nuclear Work
    Intelligence officials and a nuclear expert say Iran is planning to manufacture tens of thousands of advanced centrifuges, machines that can enrich uranium for use in an atomic bomb, The Los Angeles Times reported.
    The machines would enable Iran to enrich uranium almost twice as fast as anticipated, the officials say. Iran has pursued nuclear weapons for more than two decades in defiance of the international community. It is now locked in negotiations with three European nations that are offering it economic benefits to permanently dismantle its nuclear programs. However, Iran has repeatedly said that no incentives could convince it to give up its atomic work.

    The cheerless creatures who rule the Islamic republic of Iran have developed a particularly wicked use of torture. Not only do they use the full panoply of physical and psychological horrors on their captives, but they then send the victims back into their homes and neighborhoods for brief periods of "parole" or "medical leave," so that their friends and families can see with their own eyes the brutal effects of the torture. The clear intent of this practice is to intimidate the population at large, to break the will of would-be dissenters and opponents, and to maximize the effects of the victims themselves, for the brief respite from the pain of the prisons is mercilessly accompanied by the certainty that the agony will soon resume.

    Eurabia continues to play pattycake for months (years) now.............leaving a dumpster of radioactive sh*t for America or Israel  to handle (SHOCKA!)

    Reza Pahlavi of Iran Announces Hunger Strike in Support of Iranian Political Prisoners

    rezapahlavi.org

    FAIRFAX, Va. -- Reza Pahlavi of Iran, in response to a direct invitation by political prisoners in Iran, pledged his solidarity and announced his plans to go on a three day hunger strike starting Friday, June 10.

    "Solidarity with political prisoners of Iran and support for the legitimate quest for freedom, human rights and economic opportunity in Iran transcends all political boundaries and ideologies," said Reza Pahlavi, opposition leader to the clerical regime of Iran.

    Yesterday, in a communique, signed by numerous political prisoners, in Iran, the June 17 presidential elections were rejected as "sham and undemocratic." Calling for a boycott of the elections, the communique also cited the regime's abhorrent violations of human rights in Iran and announced the collective plan of the prisoners to go on a hunger strike as an act of nonviolent defiance of the regime.

    Highlighting the demands of the communique, Reza Pahlavi said, "Iranians of all walks of life demand: freedom of speech; the unequivocal observance of human rights, by the regime; the immediate release of all political prisoners.

    Just last week, during a press conference in Paris, the 44 year old leader called for a national boycott of the scheduled June 17th presidential election, calling it nothing short of political theatre by the regime.

    Islam on march south of border
    By Joseph Farah

    WASHINGTON – Islam is on the move in Mexico and throughout Latin America, making dramatic gains in converting the native population, increasing immigration, establishing businesses and charities and attracting attention from U.S. government officials who have asked their neighbors to the south to keep an eye on foreign Muslim groups.

    The monitoring of foreign groups is intended to "avoid problems in Mexico that have an impact in the United States," said the head of the Attorney General Office's special terrorism investigation unit, Gen. Jorge Serrano.

    "The ones who ... are being watched by migration (authorities) are foreigners," Serrano said, without revealing the number of people being monitored or their countries of origin.

    Serrano said no Muslim terrorists have been found living in Mexico, though the office is investigating alleged terrorist activities being carried out by Mexicans.

    The recruitment of new followers is especially active in southern Mexico and among the indigenous Mayans who are converting by the hundreds, according to a report in Der Spiegel. The Mexican government, the report says, is concerned about a culture clash in its own back yard.

    About 300 Tzozil-Indians have converted to Islam in recent years and it's a development that is beginning to worry the Mexican government, said the Der Spiegel report. The government even suspects the new converts of subversive activity and has already set the secret service onto the track of the Mayan Muslims. Mexican President Vincente Fox has even gone so far as to say he fears the influence of the radical fundamentalists of al-Qaida.

    Indeed, with Islamic "charities" under increasing international pressure and scrutiny to cut ties with terrorists, al-Qaida and other allied organizations are expanding operations throughout Latin America, establishing both legitimate and criminal enterprises to fund future operations.

    According to U.S. Ambassador to Venezuela Charles Shapiro, almost every extremist terror group is now represented in Latin America.

    One tool of the Islamists in Latin America is the "small business loan."

    Both newcomers to the movement and veterans of past operations are given loans to establish small businesses. These modest ventures involve food and clothing stores, transportation companies and other legitimate businesses stretching from minor real estate investments to funding of small airlines. In return these businesses repay the loans with cash accrued from their trading revenues. The money is collected by roving collectors who change from time to time to avoid being traced.

    According to Islam, adding interest on loans is regarded as usury and is strictly forbidden. Instead the business owner is asked to add a donation based on the initial principal. This can range from a few to thousands of dollars in each case. Some businesses, identified as having been established by terror groups in the infamous Muslim triangle around the border region between Argentina, Paraguay and Brazil, often are plain newspaper stands, corner stores or family-run tailor shops.

    In the so-called Muslim triangle, where the borders of Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay meet, a growing number of Arab-owned businesses are being forced to identify with the Palestinian cause.

    and here I thought Kofi Enema loved terrorism, ah only if it kills Joooos!

    aw.........isn't that special? Coffee Enema finds the terror bombing in Nepal "utterlyBoar_1 reprehensible" but totally ok for the past 57 years if its Jewish, men, women, and kinder in Israel?

    Death Sentence Delayed for Palistinian Doctor & 5 Aidworkers Found Guilty of Infecting Hundreds of Children with the Aids

    Imagine, if you will, IF THE DOCTOR WAS A JEW!  and not a Palistinian. We'd have been saying theLibaids1 Mourners Kaddish 6 years ago. Then again if the Doctor was Jewish..................

    Libya delays ruling in death sentence Aids case
     

    TRIPOLI -- Libya's high court on Tuesday delayed a ruling on an appeal by six foreign medics sentenced to death for infecting hundreds of children with the Aids virus in a case that has raised international concern.

    Judge Ali Al Allush said that the case had been put back to November 15, but gave no further details.

    His decision follows a weekend visit to Libya by Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov to plead for the lives of the five convicted Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor.

    The six were condemned in 2004 for injecting 380 children with blood transfusions infected with HIV, the virus that causes Aids. Forty-seven of those children have died.

    The accused, who have spent six years in jail, maintain their innocence. Two nurses and the doctor initially confessed to charges but later said that police had extracted the confessions with torture, including beatings and electric shocks.

    Washington and the European Union have been pressuring Libya over the case, which has strained relations between Sofia and Tripoli just as Muammar Qadhafi's regime is returning to the international fold after years of isolation.

    Egyptian Government downplayed as "Emotional Tension" the Beating and Sexual Groping of Women on Voting Day *SPIT*

    Mubarak will not go quietly into the night............he thinks he is going to live forever despite hisWhite_ribbon old age.
    How is this for one of the  anti-democracy tactics in his Pandoras box of harassment and intimidation? Sexual harassment of women on voting day.........

    And yet I have faith in the women. I believe the women hold the key to busting the Middle East out of the dark ages. I know I know, "the plumbing doesn't matter" or so I have been told by "experts" (men). But being a woman, I don't believe that.

    Afraid? yes they are..............but freedom is a drug and once tasted,  a woman (a human)  is addicted

    Oh yeah and where was Amnesty International on this one? Blaming the US and Israel for war crimes of course!

    Egyptian women protest against sexual harassment on voting day

    CAIRO -- Hundreds of black-clad men and women wearing white ribbons on their lapels gathered outside Cairo's Press Syndicate on Wednesday to protest against the assault of several women during last week's referendum.

    They were waving banners asking for the resignation of interior minister Habib Al Adli and Cairo's head of security Nabil Al Ezabi, whom they hold responsible for the violence.

    "Violating the dignity of women is like violating that of our country," and "our colleagues' dignity is part of the country's dignity", other banners read.

    The "White Ribbon national apology campaign" was launched following the molestation last week, while other women called on people to wear black to protest against "police brutality, beating and sexual harassment".

    One man was calling Mubarak's name and the crowd answered in unison "illegitimate".

    He then moved on to the president's son, Gamal, widely believed to be groomed by his father to succeed him, and marchers also said "illegitimate".

    Some in Egypt's opposition ask that the 77-year-old Egyptian leader step down after 24 years in office.

    Another man was kicking a picture of Adli with his shoe.

    Thousands of policemen had deployed around the building, where last week's incident took place, and on adjacent streets to prevent the protestors from marching in the capital.

    Some 500 marchers were gathered on the syndicate's steps and another 500 inside the building.

    Street demonstrations are banned under Egypt's emergency laws imposed after the assassination of President Hosni Mubarak's predecessor.

    The head of the Press Syndicate said the molestation was "a black page in Egypt's history".

    "It was not about an aggression against one individual but an aggression against the country," said Galal Aref.

    *SPIT* These stories make me sick.......and the lucid, pragmatic manner in which the media delivers them is even more perverse As opposed to the deafening shrill ravings of an unhinged media reporting on Israel (remember Jenin, 23 soldiers dead, 53 Palis and the Israelis would not use air cover so that they might avoid civilian casualites -ugh) Taking the moral highground is one thing, sacrificing even one Jewish life is too much (particularly when it's all pali propaganda anyway).

    Temple Mount: Arabs stone police, JewsStoning2

    In a new burst of violence, several hundred Arabs pelted police and Jewish visitors with stones on the Temple Mount Monday, lightly injuring two Jewish visitors and a police officer, as the nation marked Jerusalem Day and the reunification of the capital thirty-eight years ago.

    The violence broke out at 9:15 a.m. as a small group of Jewish visitors who were touring the ancient compound accompanied by police came under a hail of stones.

    and Bush is making nice with Hamas? Please tell me its an end run tactic, please tell me it is part of some grand strategy to take Hamas and Hizbollah down...........anything else is incomprehensible
    Reluctant U.S. Shows Signs of Shift on Hamas - Adam Entous
    The Bush administration is showing signs of easing its hard-line approach toward Hamas, in response to the militant group's rising political clout in the Palestinian territories and appeals for flexibility from European allies, officials and diplomats said. The White House acceded to Hamas running candidates in Palestinian elections, even though the group has refused to disarm and Washington lists it as a major terrorist organization. Senior administration officials said they may be open to contacts with some of Hamas's political affiliates, and would not rule out dealings with the group if it gave up its weapons and ended violence.
        The White House said President Bush has not changed his view that Hamas is a terrorist group that must be disarmed. "We're not acquiescing," a senior administration official said. "We do not deal with...terrorists." But the official added: "How do you pursue this without limiting democratic choices?" Another senior official called it a shift in emphasis, not policy. It could be reversed if Hamas-sponsored violence escalated, experts said. (Reuters)

    UH..........do we bother to call Amnesty International?

    How about Amnesty saves some lives?

    And they must be swamped with Israeli War crimes, they can't be bothered with the little things...........
    Don't the Palis just take these poor guys and shoot them in the street to "send a message"?

    Israel has gone to great lengths to prevent the PA from executing approximately 50 Palestinians convicted of collaborating with Israel. Israel approached U.S. Ambassador Dan Kurtzer on the matter, and went ahead with the release of Palestinian security prisoners last Thursday only after the PA said it did not intend to carry out the sentences.

    Saudi Arabia Debates Lifting Ban on Women Drivers - Donna Abu-NasrDanica_patrick
    Saudi legislator Mohammad al-Zulfa's proposal to allow some women, not all of them, to drive has touched off a fierce controversy in the kingdom. Conservatives, who believe women should be shielded from strange men, say women in the driver's seat will be free to leave home alone and go when and where they please. "Driving by women leads to evil," Munir al-Shahrani wrote in a letter to the Al-Watan daily. "Can you imagine what it would be like if her car broke down? She would have to seek help from men."

    Syria Tests Scud Missiles

    "Syria test-fired three Scud missiles last Friday, including one that broke up over Turkish territory and showered missile parts down onto unsuspecting Turkish farmers, Israeli military officials revealed Thursday. Syria test-fired three Scud missiles  late last week, reinforcing Israeli worries about Damascus' ability to deliver a missile-borne chemical attack against Israeli civilian targets, Israeli military officials said Friday. " The New York Times reports. In the Cato Policy Analysis "The Syria Accountability Act: Taking the Wrong Road to Damascus," United Press International foreign editor Claude Salhani writes: "The Syria Accountability Act leads in the wrong direction in the fight against anti-American terrorists by escalating an unnecessary conflict in the Middle East that will only strengthen those who wish us harm.

  • Israeli military officials said they interpreted the launchings as a gesture of defiance to the U.S. and UN by Syrian president Bashir al-Assad. "This is really putting your fingers in the eyes of the Americans, saying, 'I'm not dancing to your flute,'" a senior Israeli military official said. "The tests are probably needed for the missile project, but this is Bashir taking a risk here and sending a message."
        Syria harbors the leadership of the Palestinian militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad and helps them, as well as the Iranian-sponsored Hizballah, with money, arms, and sponsorship. "The message from Syria to the Palestinians is not to stop shooting," a senior Israeli official said. (New York Times)
  • Kurdish Cleric Murdered in Syria a Moderate Voice of Change - Paul Koring
    The lifeless body of outspoken Kurdish cleric Sheik Machouk Alkhaznawi was returned to his family in Syria on Wednesday, three weeks after he went missing. Amnesty International and members of the Kurdish Democratic Party said he was killed by authorities, citing evidence of torture on the body. Days before his disappearance, Globe and Mail correspondent Paul Koring interviewed Alkhaznawi in Damascus for a story about Syria's newly emboldened political dissidents. "Either the regime will change, or the regime must go," he said in the interview. Engaging, passionate, inspiring, and funny, Alkhaznawi was every despot's worst nightmare. He was a champion of tolerance, respect between Arabs and Kurds, and the compatibility of democracy and Islam. (Globe and Mail-Canada)
  • U.S. Calls Killing of Anti-Syrian Lebanese Journalist "Heinous"
    The U.S. condemned the killing of a prominent anti-Syrian Lebanese journalist in a bombing Thursday in Beirut. "It's a heinous act," Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said of the killing of Samir Kassir, 45, an editorial writer for the Lebanese An-Nahar newspaper and a frequent commentator on Alhurra, the U.S.-funded, Arabic-language satellite television channel. Kassir helped found Lebanon's Democratic Left movement, a main force behind the protests that led to Syria's withdrawal from Lebanon. (Bloomberg)

  • According to 'The Oslo Syndrome'
    By Center for Security Policy
    FrontPageMagazine.com
    Terrorist organizations are not being dismantled by Abbas. Instead, groups like Hamas with the avowed mission of destroying Israel are ascendant. They are winning local elections and taking full advantage of the "hudna" (temporary suspension of hostilities) to rebuild their offensive capabilities against Israel.

    Hamas and other terrorists are being integrated into Palestinian security forces, receiving valuable training and even arms from American and European personnel. In addition, burgeoning quantities of ever-more powerful weapons are being smuggled into Gaza from Egypt.

    Meanwhile, Palestinians are being encouraged by official imams whose sermons are broadcast on Abbas-controlled media to kill Jews and destroy America. For example, less than two weeks before Mr. Bush welcomed Abu Mazen to the White House, Sheik Ibrahim Mudeiris claimed on Palestinian Authority TV that history showed the torture, exile and murder of Jews to be legitimate and the Muslim conquest of the United States inevitable.

    If the evidence is so clear that the Palestinian state Abu Mazen is a-building will be but a new state-sponsor of terror, how could President Bush - who in June 2002 rejected that prospect and has devoted his presidency to eliminating such sponsors - possibly be turning a blind eye to the facts on the ground? How could he be insisting that Israel make still further territorial and political concessions, including over Jerusalem, let alone be handing over directly to the Palestinian Authority $50 million in U.S. taxpayers' funds?

    I have seen Moishe the Beetle, he is me

    Student: "Professor Wiesel, in your book, Night, you have a character, Moishe the Beetle, who comes back to warn the people. Do you see yourself now as you saw Moishe the Beetle, as a kind of messenger with a warning for all of us to listen to?"

    Elie Wiesel: "In a way, yes. But not only I, really. I think all those who went through that experience could say that they are messengers. We are all messengers to each other. If not, there would be no possibility for human beings to speak; there would be no possibility to hope. It would be impossible for any one of us to think of tomorrow. Tomorrow will be the year 2000. When I think of that year, I’m seized with anguish. What will happen then to our memories? What will happen when the last messenger will have given his or her message and will no longer be here? That is where you come into the picture, you young people. We have a tremendous faith in you—justified".

    The End of the World as We know It

    A recent law passed in Europe during the 3rd Council of Europe Summit bans the condemnation of Islam as both racist and intolerant while equating it to anti-Semitism. The draft from this summit also included the notion of "Islamophobia" and concluded that such words used in public denote discrimination and intolerance to a person's belief.

    What this new law does is equate the denunciation of one's religious beliefs with racism. It will eventually make it illegal to write and/or distribute material denouncing Islam as a religion of terror. Further, it will make it possible for Islamically minded people too sue authors of nationalities other than Islam for speaking out about the current atrocities being perpetrated by the countless Jihad organizations that have permeated every nation of the world including the USA.

    This recent act of madness by the 3rd Council of Europe brings to mind a letter submitted by a Muslim to Barbara Stock, the founder of RepublicanandProud.com which stated that:

     

    "We will fight the infidel to death.Jihad1_2

    Meanwhile American laws will protect us.
    Democrats and Leftist will support us.
    UNO will legitimize us.
    CAIR will incubate us.
    ACLU will empower us.
    Western Universities will educate us.
    Mosques will shelter us
    OPEC will finance us
    Hollywood will love us.
    Koffi Annan will pass politically correct sympathetic statements for Jihadists.

    "Our children will immigrate from Pakistan, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Indonesia and even from India to the US and to the other Western countries. They will go to the West for education in full scholarship. America is paying and will continue to pay for our children's educations and their upbringing in state funded Islamic schools.

    " We will use your welfare system. Our children will also send money home while they are preparing for Jihad.

    "We will take the advantage of American kindness, gullibility, and compassion. When time comes, we will stab them in the back. We will say one thing on the camera and teach another thing to our children at home. We will give subliminal messages to our children to uphold Islam at any cost. Our children in America will always care more about Islamic Country's interest than US interest."

    If anyone doubts this they only have to go see the latest Hollywood fairly tale blockbuster called "Kingdom of Heaven" that completely rewrites history and portrays Christians as the bad guys; looting, raping, and pillaging everything inside and outside of Jerusalem, while it portrays the Muslims as the protectors of mankind.

    It appears Hollywood forgot their history. Or perhaps they just forgot to mention the fact that most of the Middle East at that time was Christian. This is before the clerics ordered the Jihadists to convert or kill everyone. They accomplished this even before the Muslim Ottoman Empire rose to power and ostracized, killed, or enslaved all non-Muslim nations within all their conquered empire.

    Can anyone remember the last time a Muslim cleric or Muslim leader denounced any of the recent terrorist attacks against Christians?

    Of course these same Muslim leaders and Clerics are the same people that lash out when they think their rights as Muslim's are in question. They do so even as they spew their hate-filled speeches within the walls of their Mosques.

    These are the same Muslim leaders and Clerics that fund all the new Wahhabi Mosques being built throughout the USA. They feel it is their right to print material calling for a nation-wide Jihad against anyone that speaks out against Islam.

    Can anyone remember the last time a Christian beheaded or blew-up a Muslim with a bomb strapped too his hips because a Muslim burned the Bible or the US flag?

    As an American, I am sick and tired of having my freedom whittled away bit by bit, having my constitutional rights stripped away through the activism of those hiding behind a "religion" that advocates hatred, destruction of mankind, and preaches racism and intolerance in the Mosques, but professes to be a religion of peace to the media.

    Perhaps the mainstream media is less sophisticated, but after living and working in Muslim countries for the past 10 years, I can tell you one thing for certain, America is on the Islamic "agenda" and they won't stop until America is ruled by the Sharia law; nothing less is acceptable.

    After all, the courts and the American laws will protect them, the ACLU will empower them, the Mosques will shelter them, Hollywood will love them, our Western Universities will educate them, and the Democrats and Leftist will support them. What better start can you have to start your Jihad in America?

    More than anything Iran wants nukes most obviously to threaten the free world, but more tactically to scare their own people and keep them enslaved. afraid and dhimmified.

    Yes they have malevolent plans against the West, but first and foremost they must keep their own population under control. Their weapon of choice, as always, fear. The Iranian people know their mullahs will have no hesitation to use nuclear weapons against them if need be. Who is going to stop them? Fwance?

    The gods Must Be Crazy. WTO clears IRAN FOR MEMBERSHIP

    Update: May 28 

    NUCLEAR WAR-FEAR
    Intel: Iran equipped
    for atomic weapon

    Sources say Bush stunned
    by news of N.Korea transfer

     

    Worldnetdaily.com

    While European negotiators focus on Iran's development of enriched plutonium, U.S. intelligence officials say Tehran already has completed all of the elements required for an atomic bomb.

    The news has stunned President Bush, according to Geostrategy Direct, an intelligence news service led by national security reporter Bill Gertz of the Washington Times.

    "It's an incredible piece of intelligence that overshadows everything we thought we knew on Iran's nuclear program," one U.S. intelligence source said.

    Geostrategy says the intelligence information asserts North Korea this year transferred components to Iran to assemble a plutonium-based nuclear warhead.

    The components were believed to have originated in Pakistan.

    Iran insists its nuclear program is only for generation of electricity. But Washington contends Tehran's intentions are not peaceful, pointing to an enrichment program hidden from U.N. inspectors for nearly two decades before it was officially declared in October 2003.

    Roulette_1Has everyone gone effing crazy? What is this? Subversively build nuclear weapons and you too can  get all of Santa's toys!  WTF? MEMBERSHIP IN THE WTO? Iran should be ICED OUT! The toughest economic sanctions we can impose.

    The UN says Darfur is the World's Worst Humanitarian Crisis but Amnesty International WANTS USA INVESTIGATED FOR WAR CRIMES AND SLAMS ISRAEL 'WAR CRIMES'' *spit*

    Moslem's are  getting killed  in Darfur, but Moslems of a  non-fundamentalist stripe.
    They get permission to kill fellow Moslems from their religious  authorities because the Darfurians are not Sunni, and not fundamentalist - like Wahhabists - so the  religious authorities categorize them "heretics", so permissible to kill, religiously speaking.

    The Christians and animists living in the south were killed during  other recent massacres.

    And China and France aren't interested in changing the status quo,  because they have oil interests in Sudan.

    Oil rich countries want the killing to continue - in the interests of peace. Believe it

    The Arab League has rejected any sanctions or international military intervention as a response to the crisis in Sudan's Darfur region.

    Arab foreign ministers at an emergency session in Cairo backed Khartoum's measures to disarm Arab militias and punish human rights violators.

    They called on the UN to give Sudan more time to resolve the conflict.

    Al Qaeda has worked with the Sudanese government. In
    some cases, they are the Sudanese government.

    But Amnesty International wants U.S. investigated! Amnesty International USA urged foreign governments Wednesday to use international law to investigate Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, Attorney General Alberto Gonzales and other alleged American "architects of torture" at Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo Bay and other prisons where detainees suspected of ties to terrorist groups have been interrogated.

    The Sudanese Janjaweed don’t just share the same philosophy as the folks who are responsible for 9/11. In many ways, they are the same people who are responsible for 9/11. 

    the situation in Darfur and al-Qaeda's considerable involvement with the Sudanese government. I also know that some readers are going to bristle at my characterization of the Janjaweed death squads as al-Qaeda, so allow me to explain myself on this one.

    It is quite true that warfare between Sudan's abbala (camel) and baggara (cattle) Arab tribes and members of the native African Fur, Zaghawa, Berti, Toubou, and Messalit tribes has been going on for decades now. All of this is quite true and while there are both abbala and baggara Arab tribesmen in the Janjaweed, they aren't the ones perpetrating most of the massacres that we read so much about. The Sudanese military, just as back in the 1990s or the Taliban in Afghanistan against the Northern Alliance, relies on al-Qaeda to help them massacre and otherwise oppress the locals and this suits the network just fine, as it provides a fresh opportunity to "bleed" new recruits to the Cause(TM).

    I also have a new post up at Winds of Change (hyperlink isn't working for some reason) entitled "No Shame" in which I pretty much opened up on New York Times columnist Paul Krugman for taking a cheap shot at Simone Ledeen, who just returned from Iraq, in order to get at her father and the neocon movement in general. If you have a problem with Michael Ledeen, take it up with him, but for the love of God leave his family out of it.

    Database is still coming along, though I've already done bin Laden, al-Zawahiri, Jemaah Islamiyyah, all of the smaller Gulf states, Iraq, Iran, the Caucasus republics, Uzbekistan, China, Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, ect., so work on that front is coming along nicely. I'm going to use the e-mail addresses listing in the earlier blog when I start e-mail out copies of this database, so keep dropping me a line there if you want a copy.

    Today's Daily Diet of AntiSemitism Carefully Prepared by Al-Jizz

    How is this considered a "news organization"? Every story, every word for that matter, is dripping with jewhatred. They are channeling Goebbels. Imagine a daily diet of such vitriole, day in, day out, week in week out, year in year out.  They do the same thing with America, not because of Israel but because of everything America is  and represents.
    Israel  suffers from the same hate-America crowd.  Being America's close ally comes with a price.
    But do not for one moment misunderstand the enemy. With or without the Jews, we are all infidels which is why the Arab radical islamic government is killing muslims in Sudan (the moderates are being slaughtered), the Chistians and anyone that does not subjugate themselves to radical islam. And there is no color barrier, black on black, Arab on Arab............Israel is the canary in the coalmine

    PREVENTING THE NIGHTMARE: Terrorists Attacking America with Russian Nukes
    Guest Author
    By Ariel Cohen

    Ever since the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, Americans have been lucky that there have not been more atrocities on U.S. soil. However, the enemy, while weakened, is far from destroyed. Osama bin Laden and Ayman al-Zawahiri continue to issue threats against America from their hideouts. Their strength and support base, while diminished, is not eliminated.

    Other terrorist organizations inspired by radical Islamist ideology are still at large in Europe, the Middle East, the Caucasus, Central Asia, the Indian subcontinent, Southeast Asia, and presumably in the Americas. Some of them are willing to use weapons of mass destruction (WMD) to bring America down.

    Recent reports about intelligence failures before 9/11 and the Iraq war indicate that there are numerous issues regarding U.S. strategic adversaries that the intelligence community did not handle adequately. Under the new leadership of Directors John Negroponte and Porter Goss, the intelligence community must address these issues with the innovation and creativity that the issues deserve.

    Court proceedings and intelligence debriefings have indicated that al-Qaeda and other terrorist organizations planned their operations for up to six years before execution. Several attacks using chemical weapons in Great Britain, France, and Jordan were disrupted just before execution. The current hiatus in attacks against the U.S. homeland may be caused by preparation for massive attacks, possibly involving weapons of mass destruction.

    Radical Islam's "Religious Duty"
    Al-Qaeda is an organization that is religiously and ideologically committed to the destruction of the United States and Israel, the subjugation of the West, and the overthrow of existing Moslem and Arab regimes throughout the Greater Middle East and beyond -- from Nigeria to Saudi Arabia to Indonesia. Its proclaimed goal is establishment of a Califate (Khilafa) -- a militarized dictatorship based on the Shari'a (holy law) dedicated to conquest of the non-Moslem world (Dar al-Harb, literally "Land of the Sword").

    Osama bin Laden called using weapons of mass destruction against the U.S. a "religious duty." He also declared that undermining America's economic power is his strategic objective. Bin Laden portrays himself as a pious Moslem who protects and defends other Moslems and wages a jihad (holy war) in their name.(1)

    In 2003, Sheikh Nasir bin Hamid al-Fahd, a prominent Saudi cleric close to al-Qaeda, provided a comprehensive religious opinion (fatwa) justifying the use of nuclear weapons against the United States, even it killed up to 10 million Americans, under the pretext that the U.S. is to blame for the deaths of 10 million Moslems.(2)

    There should be little doubt that Al Qaeda terrorists are:

    Willing to inflict massive American casualties using WMD;
    Capable of doing so despite the technical difficulties of executing such an attack;
    Capable of either stealing or building a nuclear bomb;
    Capable of either stealing or purchasing nuclear materials to construct RDDs, radiation dispersion devices or “dirty bombs” powered by conventional explosives;

    The Russian Problem
    As sources of unsecured nuclear weapons and material, Russia and the other former Soviet republics remain major proliferation concerns for a number of reasons.

    First, the Soviet Union was an empire with a strong external perimeter and weak internal safeguards. While the Soviet regime tightly controlled everything that moved across its borders until the late 1980s, internal safety, security measures, and bureaucratic culture were inadequate. This was demonstrated by a series of technological catastrophes in the 1980s and 1990s, the most famous and dangerous of which was the meltdown of the Chernobyl nuclear reactor in Ukraine.

    Nuclear, chemical, and biological material storage facilities often were --and still are -- protected by nothing more than a padlock, an impoverished conscript, or a retirement-age guard. Moreover, corruption among general officers, mid-rank officers, and officials is still rampant, and law enforcement is highly selective.

    There is a pervasive sense in the Russian military and security services that nobody is responsible for anything and that justice, accountability, and responsibility are not a part of the bureaucratic culture.

    Corruption is pervasive. Russian officers and officials have been accused of selling weapons to Chechen militants, allowing armed Chechen to pass unmolested through road-blocs en route to terrorist attacks, attempting to sell nuclear materials from decommissioned submarine reactors in the Northern Fleet, selling vital components of military systems and vehicles, and illegally selling food rations and supplies, leading to malnutrition among the ranks.

    In such an environment, the sale of nuclear equipment and material or of even working individual weapons is undeniably feasible.

    Three contributing factors may facilitate the purchase of nuclear weapons, material, and components in Russia: anti-Americanism, the growing Wahhabi/Salafi influence, and organized crime.

    Anti-Americanism pervades the Russian elite from the top down and is escalating in the media. Every international event, from the bombing of Serb forces in Kosovo to NATO enlargement to granting asylum to Chechen militant leaders in the U.S. and U.K. is interpreted as directed against Russia and aimed at undermining its power.

    Most recently, the Russian leadership and media have characterized U.S. support of bloodless revolutions in Georgia and Ukraine as attempts to push Russia out of its sphere of influence in the Commonwealth of Independence States and to install pro-American regimes in these former Soviet republics. A former senior Russian officials stated that "U.S. behavior [vis-à-vis Russia] is not that of a friend, but of an adversary... While we need to talk to the U.S., we need to keep in mind that it is an enemy."(3)

    This attitude is echoed in an incessant stream of media commentary and biased reporting, which translate into the results of numerous opinion polls in which the U.S. consistently comes out as Russia's primary adversary.

    The Russian military forces' posture, new weapons system development (including nuclear and missile modernization), military maneuvers, and foreign alliances (especially with China and Iran) all indicate that Russia views the United States as an unfriendly power. Such anti-Americanism may facilitate illicit transactions involving nuclear weapons or components in which the Russian seller or thief understands that the U.S. is the likely target.

    Over 20 million Moslems – 7% of the total population – live in Russia today. The increasing influence of Salafi/Wahhabi Islam among them may facilitate penetration of the Russian military-industrial complex by collaborators and sympathizers of terrorist organizations.

    Pro-Salafi organizations and preachers in Russia operate with few restrictions. Leading Russian experts on Islam have stated that Saudi Arabian funding sources expend large amounts of hard currency in Russia to buy political influence among politicians, journalists, and other members of the Russian elite. (4)

    Finally, the influence of organized crime remains pervasive. Russian and post-Soviet organized criminal enterprises are more sophisticated and command more educated personnel than almost any other country’s organized crime structures. Recently, the Prosecutor General of Russia stated that 500 large enterprises are controlled by organized crime, including major oil and gas supply and transportation ventures generating hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue.

    In many cases, organized crime has merged with legal business and has access to state enterprises, government officials, and a broad range of international contacts. Russian organized crime may be the conduit through which terrorists acquire and ship nuclear components or weapons to their final destinations.

    The Challenges of Non-Proliferation
    To diminish proliferation threats from Russia and post-Soviet space, Presidents George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and George W. Bush undertook a number of steps to secure Soviet/Russian WMD, including the Nunn-Lugar Cooperative Threat Reduction Program and pursuing non-proliferation projects with the Yeltsin and Putin governments. This cooperation seems to be working to some degree.

    Nonetheless, the Russian stockpile of thousands of nuclear weapons and hundreds of tons of weapons grade material suffers from a number of security issues that need to be addressed, including:

    The lack of reliable accounting and electronically updated (and up-to-date) databases that cover all weapons systems, including tactical nuclear arms, shells, and warheads;

    The mystery surrounding so-called suitcase bombs;(5)

    Poor security of some nuclear weapons systems, especially tactical and stored/decommissioned charges;

    The lack of modern means of monitoring, such as closed-circuit TV and motion sensors linked to a computerized monitoring system;

    Poor security of highly enriched uranium and plutonium stockpiles; and

    Insufficient security of radioactive materials used for research, medical, and industrial purposes.

    In terms of probability, a RDD attack is easier to execute than a full-scale nuclear fission explosion. As far as construction of a nuclear device, a HEU (highly enriched uranium) bomb is easier to manufacture than a plutonium bomb, and a crude improvised bomb is easier to build than a military-grade weapon. Having said that, there is more than a theoretical possibility that terrorists could buy a working Russian warhead and deliver it to the U.S. in one of the millions of shipping containers that enter the country without examination by U.S. Customs. Far easier would be smuggling in Russian radioactive material for assembly and detonation of a RDD in the United States.

    What the U.S. Should Do
    In order to stem the growing nuclear threat facing the U.S., it is imperative that policymakers:

    Develop a comprehensive global intelligence network from the current cooperative bilateral arrangements with European, Middle Eastern, South Asia, and East Asian states. Such a network should mesh intelligence gathering, counter-proliferation measures, and special operations to thwart proliferation.

    It would provide ample warnings to neutralize terrorist organizations at the early planning stages of a WMD attack. U.S. intelligence community should boost cooperation with law enforcement and foreign intelligence communities to include joint counterterrorist operations. Such operations would include deep, on-site, and long-term penetration of terrorist organizations and neutralizing those involved in WMD terrorist operations through covert action.

    Task the Pentagon with developing deterrence against high-value and symbolic targets that terrorists and their sponsors value.

    Provide ample funding for joint non-proliferation programs, such as the Proliferation Security Initiative.

    Cooperate with Russia and the other former Soviet republics by expanding the Nunn-Lugar funding while boosting the accountability and transparency of these programs.

    Design a supporting public affairs component of the U.S. anti-terrorism policy through the State Department Public Diplomacy structure, through the Board of International Broadcasting, and through the non-profit sector to explain the importance of joint anti-terrorism actions to the Russian elites, media, and general public.

    Launch a political warfare component via the intelligence community to encourage moderate Moslem clerics to issue fatwas forbidding terrorism in general and attacks using WMD in particular. This component should be expended to include Moslem media in major markets, such as Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.

    Consider a program instituting monetary rewards for interception of proliferation operations and nuclear terrorist activities through the U.S. law enforcement and intelligence organizations, without creating a prize for unscrupulous foreign officials to simulate such activities.

    Conclusion
    Fighting against WMD-armed terrorist groups is possibly more challenging than any Cold War task. During the Cold War, there were only two blocs -- NATO and the Warsaw Pact -- led by strong nation-states with strong chains of command. Now there are multiple players, including transnational movements and other diffuse non-state entities driven by ideology, religious interpretation, and language, which many Americans do not comprehend.

    However, the United States and its allies have no alternative but to combat and destroy these evildoers while preventing them from obtaining and using weapons of mass destruction.

    G-d Save the Christians of Bethlehem

    If history is any indication, the Christians of Bethlehem have no chance.

Wasn't Eurabia once Europe?)............. channeling  Steve McQueen

    Bethlehem Christians Worry About Islamic Takeover - Julie Stahl
    Christians in Bethlehem are concerned that their city may slowly become an Islamic stronghold following recent municipal elections in which members of Hamas and Islamic Jihad, both on the State Department's list of terrorist organizations, took a number of seats. "Slowly, slowly they will take over [and] have Palestine as an Islamic state," said one Christian leader in Bethlehem. Thirty years ago no one had ever heard of Hamas; now more than 30% of the city is Hamas and it's growing every year, he said. More than 5,000 Christians have left the city during the last few years, primarily for economic reasons, while the so-called Christian countries in the West gave all their money to the PA, which was like giving it to the mafia, said the Bethlehem Christian.

    Syria is the main conduit for foreign militants fighting for al-Qaeda-ally Abu Musab al-ZarqawiEye_allseeingeye in Iraq, a senior U.S. administration official said on Wednesday. "We're concerned that Zarqawi is supported by a foreign fighter network that gets foreign fighters largely through Syria," the official said. "There are locations in Syria where foreign fighters and money and logistics come together and then transit to Iraq, and those foreign fighters and money come from elsewhere in the Muslim world." Syria has taken "some cosmetic steps," but "not nearly what they ought to be doing," the official said.
        "They are a major disruptive force, they are disruptive in Iraq, they are disruptive of the efforts between Palestinians and Israelis to come up with a Middle East peace," he said. "Syria in some sense has been a source of instability in the region," the official said. (Reuters)

    Islamic Lies Eagerly Devoured by a hungry Left Wing Media - they have really lost it

    What is most worrisome about the FrontpageMag.com article "CAIR's Hate Crimes Nonsense" authored by Daniel Pipes and Sharon Chadha is not the lies the lying murderers tell (we have all come to expect that as the least of their eggregious crimes), but the complicity of the LLL media elite to eagerly plant it as fact...........meme glorified. No fact checking, no research, no substantiation............so what are we to rely on? Just a couple of eggheads in a small dark room exposing the truth to the light of day.

    Check out this morsel of truth they expose on the
    Unequal Protection: The Status of Muslim Civil Rights in the United States 2005, an annual report issued last week by the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)   [love the acronym, nice touch, eh?]

    But CAIR is part of the Wahhabi Lobby, so (unlike the mainstream media reporters) we thought it a good idea to take a closer look at the report. We examined in detail some “examples of anti-Muslim hate crime reports received by CAIR in 2004,” on p. 43, plus some “samples” on p. 53 and discovered a pattern of sloppiness, exaggeration, and distortion:

    1)                          CAIR cites the July 9, 2004 case of apparent arson at a Muslim-owned grocery store in Everett, Washington. But investigators quickly determined that Mirza Akram, the store’s operator, staged the arson to avoid meeting his scheduled payments and to collect on an insurance policy. Although Akram’s antics were long ago exposed as a fraud, CAIR continues to list this case as an anti-Muslim hate crime.


    2)                          CAIR also states that “a Muslim-owned market was burned down in Texas” on August 6, 2004. But already a month later, the owner was arrested for having set fire to his own business. Why does CAIR include this incident in its report?

    3)                          CAIR lists the March 2005 lawsuit filed by the Salmi family for the firebombing of their family van as one example of a hate crime reports it received in 2004. However, the crime named in the lawsuit occurred in March 2003, was already reported by CAIR in 2003, and should not have been tabulated again in the 2004 report.

    4)                          CAIR reports that “a home-made bomb exploded outside of the Champions Mosque in the Houston suburb of Spring, Texas,” staking its claim on eyewitness reports that on July 4, 2004, “two white males” were seen placing the bomb. We inquired about the incidents and found that Spring’s sheriff department could not locate any police files about an explosion. Further inquiries to the mosque and an e-mail to CAIR both went unanswered. There is scant evidence that any crime even occurred.

    5)                          CAIR notes that “investigators in Massachusetts are still investigating a potential hate motivated arson against the Al-Baqi Islamic Center in Springfield.” However the case was long ago ruled a simple robbery, news that even CAIR’s own website has posted. The Associated Press reported on January 21, 2005, that prosecutors determined the fire was set by teen-age boys “who broke into the Al-Baqi mosque to steal money and candy, then set the fire to cover their tracks.” The boys, they clarified, “weren’t motivated by hatred toward Muslims.”

    6)                          CAIR describes what happened to a Muslim family in Tucson, Arizona: “bullet shots pierced their home as they ate dinner in October 2004” and two months later their truck was smashed and vandalized. But the only evidence that either incident was motivated by hate of Muslims is the Dehdashti family itself, not the police. Detective Frank Rovi of Pima County Sheriff’s Department, who handled the shooting investigation, said that according to the neighbors, the desert area by the Dehdashti house was often used for target practice. Neither incident was classified as a hate crime and both cases were closed by February 2005, long before the CAIR report went to press.

    Of twenty “anti-Muslim hate crimes” in 2004 that CAIR describes, at least six are invalid – and further research could likely find problems with the other fourteen instances. Nor is this the first unreliable CAIR report; earlier ones were just as bad

    Hamas' Malevolence is Brilliant, Intent is Obvious

    I know we are supposed to be all happy about this but frankly it scares the begeezus outta me. I know exactly what Hamas is doing, gaining a firm foothold on the people and land of Gaza and the territories. No I do not believe for a nanosecond that their intentions are honorable.
    Just the opposite..............Hamas intends to take over "Palestine" (*spit*) and launch a terrible war against Israel, stupid they are not. Israel, providing them with those very tools, on the other hand....................

  • Local Hamas Officials in Contact with IDF
    Hamas officials recently elected in PA municipal council elections are holding regularHamas_child_2_2 contacts with IDF liaison and coordination officers, a senior military official told Israel Radio Monday. The contacts are confined to local issues such as commerce, electricity, water and sewage, and do not deal with diplomatic issues, the radio said. West Bank Hamas leader Sheikh Hassan Yusif confirmed the talks, saying, "There is no alternative to being in contact with the Israelis when we are speaking of ongoing civilian affairs for the sake of the welfare of the inhabitants."

    Rice to Syria: Close Borders to Terrorists - Anne Gearan
    Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice sharply criticized Syria on Monday for what she called unwillingness to close its borders to terrorists she said are to blame for some of the violence in Iraq. "Their unwillingness to deal with the crossings of their border into Iraq is frustrating the will of the Iraqi people,'' and leading to the deaths of innocent Iraqis, Rice said. En route home from a surprise trip to see Iraq's new leaders, Rice said, "We're going to go back and look again at what the neighbors can do to get the Syrians to stop support for these foreign terrorists who we believe are gathering on Syrian territory and coming across.''  (AP/Guardian-UK)

    Fighting the Real Enemy in Iraq: Radical Islam

    Interesting that the mainstream media finally says what our boys fighting in Iraq have been saying all along........it's not the Iraqis we are fighting in Iraq, its the foreign fighters.  And isn't that the point? Stop and think. Isn't that what we should be doing, taking out the terrorists over there, not in downtown Manhattan.
    Each radical fundamentalist must be taken out, every cockroach killed.......a long and tedious process.But that is very much our objective.
    And if we can do it without declaring war on these "foreign nations"  ( i.e.  Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria) all the better. Keep the sinister UN out of it.

    I don't know that "mostly" is correct (and neither do they) in this Washington Post headline but the point is clear.

    'Martyrs' In Iraq Mostly SaudisWtc_burning_2

    By Susan B. Glasser, Washington Post Staff Writer

    Before Hadi bin Mubarak Qahtani exploded himself into an anonymous fireball, he was young and interested only in "fooling around."
    Like many Saudis, he was said to have experienced a religious awakening after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States and dedicated himself to Allah, inspired by "the holy attack that demolished the foolish infidel Americans and caused many young men to awaken from their deep sleep," according to a posting on a jihadist Web site.

    Like many Saudis, he was said to have experienced a religious awakening after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the United States and dedicated himself to Allah, inspired by "the holy attack that demolished the foolish infidel Americans and caused many young men to awaken from their deep sleep," according to a posting on a jihadist Web site.

    On April 11, he died as a suicide bomber, part of a coordinated insurgent attack on a U.S. Marine base in the western

    Iraq city of Qaim. Just two days later, "the Martyrdom" of Hadi bin Mubarak Qahtani was announced on the Internet, the latest requiem for a young Saudi man who had clamored to follow "those 19 heroes" of Sept. 11 and had found in Iraq an accessible way to die.

    Hundreds of similar accounts of suicide bombers are featured on the rapidly proliferating array of Web sites run by radical Islamists, online celebrations of death that offer a wealth of information about an otherwise shadowy foe at a time when U.S. military officials say that foreign fighters constitute a growing and particularly deadly percentage of the Iraqi insurgency.

    The account of Qahtani's death, like many other individual entries on the Web sites, cannot be verified. But independent experts and former government terrorism analysts who monitor the sites believe they are genuine mouthpieces for the al Qaeda-affiliated radicals who have made Iraq "a melting pot for jihadists from around the world, a training group and an indoctrination center," as a recent State Department report put it. The sites hail death in Iraq as the inspiration for a new generation of terrorists in much the same way that

    Afghanistan attracted Muslims eager to fight against the Soviet Union in the 1980s.

    Who are the suicide bombers of Iraq? By the radicals' account, they are an internationalist brigade of Arabs, with the largest share in the online lists from Saudi Arabia and a significant minority from other countries on Iraq's borders, such as Syria and Kuwait.

    Does al-Qaida have Nukes?

    WND g2 Does al-Qaida have a nuclear weapon?


    By LTC Joseph C. Myers

    With all of our pressing focus on events in the War on Terror overseas, that is the mostLaden_monster_3 important question here at home. Historically the pattern of WMD proliferation in the world has been principally state to state: China to Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and possibly North Korea; or North Korea to Pakistan, and maybe a former Soviet Republic to North Korea. I would have assessed it as a “low probability” that al-Qaida has a nuclear weapon, but potentially “high impact” if they do. With that probability assessment, however, I also would have low confidence in given the intelligence gaps and demonstrated U.S. intelligence shortfalls that have been publicly and exhaustively examined with respect to Iraq.

    But the intelligence shortcomings detailed in the report released on March 30 by the Commission on the Intelligence Capabilities of the United States Regarding Weapons of Mass Destruction not only indicates that the state of our knowledge is worse than previously understood; but reading the commission’s own evaluation of the intelligence analysis, information and circumstances in Afghanistan pre- and post invasion actually leads me to raise the probability that al-Qaida has a nuclear weapon from low to a moderate probability [50-50]. Far from allaying my fears, it heightened them.

    1. Al-Qaida has the desire to acquire nuclear weapons, as already publicly stated by Osama bin Laden
    2. It is moderate probability that they may possess one or more nuclear weapons, as already publicly stated by Laden
    3. It has a fatwa that grants religious approval and authority for the weapon’s employment against the United States
    4. It has access to sympathizers within the nuclear development structures of emergent nuclear states
    5. It has the funds to purchase finished weapons and hire sympathetic experts to train them on the handling and employment of the weapons
    6. The intelligence community cannot fully assess with a high degree of confidence the availability of nuclear weapons to al-Qaida via criminal or deliberate proliferation activities

    Hydra's Latest Addition: The South America- Arab Summit

    UPDATE May 17 '05:  MYSTERY ACHIEVEMENT has an excellent post  on the highlights and exactly what went on at this disgusting event, THE WAR COUNCIL HAS ADJOURNED.

    As if America didn't have enough on her plate in the battle against evil. Chavez is a problem, a despot with dellusions of world domination. He  sees an historical opening into the fight and he intends to seize it. Another hot point that must be monitored closely in our hemisphere and in the case of Castro, right near our sphincters. Castro has been waiting for this since the fall of his propmaster, the Soviet Union


    The South America-Arab Summit
    by Heitor De Paola on May, 13, 2005

    Brief: Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, an irate critic of the  U.S., in addressing the gathering, called for the creation of an Arab- Latin American Front to "challenge the Empire". 

     It would not be democratic if we attempted, in a plural document such as this Declaration, to conceptualize democracy the way we understand it without considering other cultures’ meanings of the term.   Brazilian President Lula da Silva 

     

    A threat to democracies and to the fight against terrorism Castrochavez2_2

    This week the Brazilian Capital was the stage for an unprecedent summit between Arab and South American states. Seven of 22 Arab heads of state and eight of the 12 South American leaders attended the meeting. The most prominent absentees were Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Jordan and Syria.  The summit has ended with confused definitions of terrorism, with expressions of support for the Palestinians, backing for the right of people of any country to fight against "foreign occupation," - a clear reference to the Palestinian group Hamas and Lebanon's HizbAllah - and even more disturbing concepts of democracy, as the above declaration of the Brazilian President. Also, Brazil's Foreign Minister Celso Amorim, declared that “the declaration on terrorism is open to many interpretations”.

    Both are relativistic definitions that imply that Western concept of democracy is not an absolute and even that there are “good” as well as “bad” terrorism. As always happens with relativistic concepts, who defines what is good or evil? Probably bad terrorism is anything that targets many of the signers of the Declaration, as the defense measures of the State of Israel, and “good” terrorism is the practiced by them against the Western world. In a declaration released at the end of the meeting, participants called for Israel to withdraw from "occupied territories" and dismantle Jewish settlements, including those in East Jerusalem - a longstanding non-negotiable issue for Israeli governments, and criticized U.S. sanctions against the rogue dictatorship of Syria. Terrorism is a criminal act and if it is “open to many interpretations” it ceases to be a crime at all! We can infer that this is exactly the meaning of Amorim’s speech: to decriminalize terrorism, in total agreement with Venezuelan Chavez about the Colombia’s FARCs narco-terrorists as “freedom fighters”.

    Who defines what is a democratic government?  Again if any Country has the right to define it according to their rulers it turns into an empty and meaningless concept, as happened in last century’s communists “popular democratic Republics”, and even now it could be applied to the “electoral” process in Cuba and many Arab and African dictatorships.

    It has been repeated time and again, before and after de meeting, that Brazil's interests were to establish closer commercial ties with the oil producers and rich Countries of the Middle East in order to improve commercial profits. In my opinion, if the reason to these relativistic concepts is “business is business”, they are immoral and contrary to any acceptable ethical system. But there are reasons to believe that commerce was not the real motivation for the summit.

    Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, an irate critic of the U.S., in addressing the gathering, called for the creation of an Arab-Latin American Front to "challenge the Empire", according to Venezuelan media reports. Both regions had been the victims of imperialist aggression because of their oil wealth, he argued. The Venezuelan leader also was quoted as saying after a plenary session that although the summit was not intended as an anti-U.S. gathering, "deep inside, the summit was about the U.S., because when we talk about forming a pluralistic world, it collides with the U.S. plans to establish a unipolar world.” The Brazilian government, agreeing to his second best ally – the first is Castro - declined to accept the U.S. request to send an observer to the proceedings.

    Something that went unmentioned was that in the last Monday 9 the Brazilian Foreign Minister delayed for one hour Chavez arrival at the Presidential House of Granja do Torto to an announced dinner with Lula and Argentina’s President Kirchner.  The delay was necessary because the latter made it clear that he doesn’t want to participate of the secret Brasilia-Caracas-Buenos Aires axis – that more secretly involves Havana too – that his intelligence services detected. To Kirchner this is a dangerous and lunatic anti-American adventure and he wanted to express his concerns to Lula in a meeting between them alone.

    Many analysts wonder that the open summit served the real purpose of establishing an international support to Chavez in his struggle against America, and a Caracas-Brasilia- Buenos Aires axis as a substitute to the Tito-Sukarno covenant that originated the Non-Aligned Countries Movement of the 60’s. However, I think that it is not Chavez, who needs such support, but Castro. Castro needs desperately any support to remain in power until his death and to guarantee his crown prince Raul to succeed him in that devastated island. It is not to be forgotten that the Non-Aligned Movement included Cuba as one of the most prominent members – Cuba sponsored the Trilateral Conference and OLAS (Organization of Latin American Solidarity). And I believe the same is happening now! Both Jose Dirceu and the shadowy presidential foreign affairs advisory to Lula, Marco Aurelio Garcia, travel a lot among the three Countries since Lula was elected.

    Kirchner is no fool and he has other critic problems as a Jew in a Country in which terrorist bombings targeted the Israeli Embassy and a Jewish community center in the 1990s. Already the Simon Wiesenthal Center said in a letter to Brazil's foreign minister "the ambiguity of the language gives the opportunity for these terrorist organizations to claim that the South American community has endorsed their actions."

    This oil and money support to Castro involves three areas: communications, energy and military cooperation. One of Chavez's current initiatives is the formation of what is being promoted as Latin America's equivalent to the Arabic Al-Jazeera television channel, based on Castro’s experience of lying media. Chavez, who frequently accuses international news broadcasters of bias, is providing most of the funding for the new Spanish-language channel, TELESUR, which is due to begin transmitting in two months' time. In a near future it will be a bilingual broadcasting – Spanish and Portuguese! It wouldn’t be a surprise to many Brazilian observes if the most powerful Brazilian TV Network, Rede Glodo, should be involved in this project.

    Lastly, it must be stressed that some of the countries attending the summit are leading players in the world of oil and energy: Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Iraq, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Algeria, Egypt, Qatar, Libya, Oman, Syria, Yemen, Venezuela, Ecuador and Argentina. According to Al-Jazeera correspondent, Adam Porter, these Countries currently pump among them around 27.26 million barrels per day (mbpd) of the world's demand of 84 mbpd or around 32.5% of total production. Venezuelan PDEVESA and Brazilian PETROBRAS, both state owned oil companies, already have joint projects in Cuba and it is to be expected at least a joint venture – if not a total fusion – in an international oil company named PETROSUR. The idea of integrating Argentina in such project seems more difficult now.

    According to Porter, China has also figured prominently in South American oil infrastructure. It recently signed deals to build refinery projects in Venezuela and has made some possible exploration deals as well.

    Is it not a perfect anti-American, anti-Western, anti-democratic and anti-capitalistic axis?

    This can hardly be surprising,

    Anti-Israel Campus Activity Rises - Hilary Leila KriegerColumbiaillustration

    Anti-Israel activity on U.S. campuses this spring has been at its highest level since the outbreak of the second intifada and has successfully pushed through three divest-from-Israel resolutions, according to Israel on Campus Coalition (ICC) Executive Director Wayne Firestone. Firestone attributed the passage of the initiatives to a new strategy in which pro-Palestinian activists target peripheral universities with virtually no active Jewish presence. (Jerusalem Post)

    All you have to do is click on Hijacking America's Educational System and you'll wonder how it didn't happen sooner. This  dangerous trend is merely a manifestation of the cancer infecting the Middle Eastern study programs at Universities nationwide. The professors take the role of Squealer, the voice of the revolution in Animal Farm,who is capable of turning "black into white," and the menacing presence of  private armies of fierce rabid watchdogs capable of intimidating students into silence .............see the flick Columbia Unbecoming and read my posts on the Columbia University  MEALAC Dept here and here.
    David Horowitz  of FrontPageMag (BTW, the best site) has an action plan to begin to dissemble this corrupt, and very evil in its nature structure of mendacity. And there is a brillliant piece in Wednesday's Opinion Journal Retaking the Universities, Roger Kimball. that must be read.

    This perverse  influence on our young bright minds  bodes very ill tidings indeed. Just look at how the madrassas and  the indoctrination of hate has infected the whole of the Arab world and Eurabia. What is to save us  (and I don't mean just Israel..........it is in fact the whole of the Western world that teeters in the balance) if we refuse to recognize that which is in front of us, destroying our very way of life, our great country.

    In other words, GET INVOLVED. The life you save may be your kid(s).

    Germany: Israel Still Needs "Military Supremacy"
    German Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer said Wednesday that Israel still needs to have "military supremacy" over its neighbors. Fischer told Die Zeit the problem remained that Israel was "never really recognized" by its neighbors. "This requires military supremacy," he added. Fischer noted that in Israel there was "a lot of mistrust" of the Europeans when it came to security issues. (DPA/Expatica-Netherlands)

    The Case for Nuclear Energy

    Gary Becker makes a must read case for nuclear energy in today's Wall Street Journal.
    Hard to believe that we haven't built a nuclear power plant in over 25 years (since hanoi jane's lefty flick China Syndrome?)

    "Even though no U.S. nuclear plants have been started for 25 years, old plantsNuclear_energy have raised output much closer to their capacity. As a result, nuclear power currently supplies about 20% of all electricity generated in the U.S. Yet this is much smaller than the 70% supplied by nuclear power in France, one-third in Japan, and about half in that highly improbable country, Sweden."


    Becker points out "The excellent safety record at American nuclear plants, growing imports of oil, natural gas, and other fossil fuels at high prices, and increased concern over the pollution and global warming caused by fossil fuels, has made the case for reducing regulatory obstacles"


    "Nuclear power has other advantages. Uranium is abundant, easily transported and efficient in producing energy. One kilogram of natural uranium will yield 20,000 times as much energy as a kilogram of coal. Nuclear plants would reduce U.S. dependence on imports of natural gas and oil. To the extent there is concern about running out of fossil fuels -- a concern that I believe is greatly exaggerated -- nuclear generation of electricity becomes even more attractive


    Look, this is a meaningful answer to the lunacy of our funding of terror, wahhabism, maddrassas, and Radical Islam. We gotta get off the crackcocaine.

    The Nuclear Option

    oh and while you're at it, Read Michael Crichton's speech on the fallacy of Environmentalism.

    Increasingly it seems facts aren't necessary, because the tenets of environmentalism are all about belief. It's about whether you are going to be a sinner, or saved. Whether you are going to be one of the people on the side of salvation, or on the side of doom. Whether you are going to be one of us, or one of them.

    Am I exaggerating to make a point? I am afraid not. Because we know a lot more about the world than we did forty or fifty years ago. And what we know now is not so supportive of certain core environmental myths, yet the myths do not die. Let's examine some of those beliefs.

    If you haven't read it, shut everything off, sit down with the java and read every word. It's is that important........

    UN GETS TOUGH ON NUKES........BUT ONLY WHEN IT COMES TO ISRAEL

    More from the blame the joooooooooooos crowd. How ridiculous. Focus on Israel's nukes. She's had them for over 30 years, has never used or even admitted to the capabilities. It's the only thing Israel has in the bank to stay alive and keep her arab enemy neighbors at arms length
    This beyond ridiculous.........The North Koreans are taunting the world with their 6 nuclear warheads, and Iran is thisclose..........but Mubarak (yes the same Mubarak the helped Saddam Hussein ake chemical weapons) is insisting on Israel's nuclear disarmament.

    UN nuclear talks break deadlock over Israeli arms

    UNITED NATIONS - More than 180 nations hoping to strengthen global protections against the spread of nuclear arms ended a week and a half of paralysis centering on Israel's presumed atomic arsenal on Wednesday and adopted an agenda enabling them to begin their work. The agreement came nearly halfway through a four-week conference reviewing the 1970 Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, which had been deadlocked over a demand by Egypt that the issue of nuclear weapons in the Middle East be on the agenda. A compromise worked out by conference president Sergio Duarte of Brazil added an asterisk to the proposed agenda referring to a separate piece of paper ensuring that the practice of previous NPT conferences, in which the Middle East had been discussed, would be "taken into account."

    And for key-ryst sake...................will someone have the cujones to go toe to toe with China on their manipulation of the global chessboard. They are really scary

    Harvard Funds Play on Abu Ghraib Abuses

    BY DANIEL HEMEL - Special to the Sun
    May 12, 2005

    CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - Testifying at the January trial of a U.S. soldier accused of prisoner abuse at the American prison in Abu Ghraib, an Iraqi detainee, Hussein Mutar, said "the Americans were torturing us like it was theater to them."

    Tonight at Harvard, Abu Ghraib will become theater, as students re-enact the prisoner abuse in a 90-minute university-funded performance that, according to the show's Web site, is designed "to inflame."

    Abu_ghraib_03_1
    It was important to spice up the theater scene at Harvard," said Currun Singh, the 19-year-old Kuwaiti-born sophomore from Honolulu, Hawaii, who wrote and is directing the play.

    "Abu Ghraib" opens with a handcuffed male actor - clothed only in a black hood - holding his genitals while standing atop a three-foot box placed center stage. Later in the show, the character of Army Specialist Charles Graner, portrayed by freshman Rob Salas, 18, urinates on a detainee who has been tied to a door, although Mr. Salas said he only "stage" urinates with his back to the audience.

    "We haven't censored ourselves," Mr. Singh said, while noting that the play does avoid full-frontal nudity. "The prisoners get roughed up a bit," he said, but the play for the most part relies on "stylized violence."

    Don't be fooled: Reports of Syria's Withdrawal are Greatly Exaggerated

    I know everyone is all happy and psyched that Syria  has pulled out of Lebanon. But don't letAssadlongneck that Ass-ad fool you. You are too smart for that! He can't let go of the very lifeblood that keeps his economy afloat. He can't let go of the direct proximity that Lebanon provides to direct attacks on Israel under the guise "hizbollah" aka Syria.
    So this is how the cockroaches are going about their business (from JINSA):
    Palestinian Military Bases: We have been pointing to the problem of Palestinian military bases in Lebanon. Now, Geostrategy Direct reports “Syria’s intelligence units have relocated to Palestinian refugee camps and military bases, which remain off limits to Lebanese authorities.” In 1982, the PFLP-GC established these bases for training and storage of Katyusha rockets, rocket-propelled grenades and light weapons. The UN has sent a team to verify Syria’s withdrawal but neither they nor Lebanese police or army units have been permitted to enter the bases. The PFLP-GC was founded and has been led, Geostrategy Direct notes, by Ahmed Jibril, a Syrian military officer.

    The Emergence of the slightly damaged but MOST MALEVOLENT AXIS OF EVIL

    Putin_stalinAs I have railed on for weeks now, my fear takes the form of reality. Russia/POOtin is rearming old decrepid, Jewhating Arab theocracies in a feeble but dangerous attempt to regain world power, clout currency. I would hardly worry but the stakes are too high. Enriched Uranium, Bioterror, missile capabilities. I SAY, STOP HIM DEAD IN HIS TRACKS.

     

    Putin Leads Russia's Return to the Middle East
    and the Arab Embrace

    Michael Widlanski


    • Russian President Vladimir Putin promised to support Egypt's bid for a permanent seat on the UN Security Council and insisted that his country sell advanced missiles to Syria, while continuing to aid the nuclear development of Iran, particularly the Russian-built, 1,000-megawatt, Bushehr nuclear reactor.Putin_arafat_better_pic_1

    • The real reason for Putin's visit and for Palestinian enthusiasm seems to be an attempt to restore previous Russian or Soviet policies. "The Soviets were always keen on the Middle East. The region was practically their backyard," said Reda Shehata, a former Egyptian ambassador to Russia.

    • With former Soviet Central Asia today dotted with American air force bases, Putin's best option is to skip over this tier of American influence and re-engage the Arab world. The Middle East is the natural area for Russia to be active, if Moscow is to regain some of the influence that the Soviet Union once enjoyed. However, past Russian diplomacy, aid, and weapons offers have sometimes spurred wars and arms races, not peace.

    • Mubarak_putin_2Abbas is not very different from the Ba'ath party officials in Syria who believe in a Russian counterweight to U.S. policies. Abbas did his advanced university training in Moscow, speaks fluent Russian, and once served as the PLO ambassador to the Soviet Union.

    • The chosen instrument that both Russia and the PA hope to employ to neutralize American power is the Quartet, where a united front of Russia, the EU, and the UN can be depended upon to offset the position of the U.S. After Putin met Abbas in Ramallah, he called for strengthening the role of the Quartet.

    • The renewed Russian drive for influence in the Middle East raises serious questions about the entire idea of relying on a multilateral Quartet for peacemaking. Given Putin's harsh critique of U.S. support for Middle Eastern democracy, how can he be a partner for President Bush in the Middle East? Why empower those who oppose you?Putin_asad


    These now-budding lovefests mean only only thing, the destruction of America. Like our beloved President Bush said Saturday, Democracies are peaceful nations. The agenda of the axis of evil is diabolical and frightening consider all the missing enriched uranium. And while they may fight amongst themselves, they have one clear objective- get rid of America and her power - Atlas

    Fatah beats out a strong Hamas in municipal elections
    By Arnon Regular, Haaretz

    Correspondent and Agencies Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas' ruling Fatah movement narrowly fended off a strong challenge by the Islamic militant group Hamas in local elections in the West Bank and Gaza Strip on Friday, with Fatah winning 56 percent and Hamas 33 percent of the vote. The corruption-tainted Fatah had feared defeat in Thursday's elections, but unofficial election results indicated the party won in 45 of 84 communities. However, Hamas established itself as a major political player, winning 23 of the contests, including in the three biggest towns - Qalqilyah, Rafah and Beit Lahia. Final official results are expected only Sunday but Qalqilyah's next mayor will likely be from Hamas.

    For me the most telling pull quote was the following;

    In the remaining 16 communities, neither side won a clear majority, with independents or smaller factions getting the most votes.

    obviously there is plenty of fear out there. Which to choose? Fatah, the corrupt violent party of Ararat or Cold  Blooded murders Hamas?........decisions, decisios..........

    Columbia University's Rabid Antisemetism Prohibits Students from Advancing their Studies: THOUGHT CONTROL!

    Campus Watch sent me this.....I couldn't make this up if I wanted to. I dont't think you need me to tell you how important and vital the work the Middle East Forum does, but here is a short explanation of their mission: The Middle East Forum, a think tank, works to define and promote American interests in the Middle East. The Forum holds that the United States has vital interests in the region; it believes in strong ties with Israel, Turkey, and other democracies as they emerge; works for human rights in the region; seeks a stable supply and a low price of oil; and promotes the peaceful settlement of regional and international disputes.

    These radical  islamic bullies at  Columbia are trying to brainwash our finest minds so that they come back to roost in 10 years.
    File this in the "Truth is stranger than Fiction" file. And it keeps getting stranger and stranger......

    Columbia University Refuses to Send Middle East Forum Announcement

    Philadelphia, May 6, 2005 – Columbia University’s Middle East Institute has rejected an announcement for the Middle East Forum’s summer internship program.

    The Middle East Forum requested that it be sent out on April 22, 2005. Noting the announcement had not gone out, the Forum sent a follow-up inquiry on May 5. In reply, Astrid Benedek, MEI’s associate administrator, explained that she would not do so until the Forum made changes on its Campus Watch website. She also indicated she would not reply again to the MEF (“I think we best end our communication right here”).

    This refusal contradicts an earlier statement by Benedek about the institute’s policy of semi-automatically forwarding information for “countless other … outside organizations.”Rashidkhalidi_2

    The Middle East Institute is directed by former PLO advisor Rashid Khalidi.

    Although Columbia’s Middle East Institute receives taxpayer funding via the federal government’s International Studies in Higher Education Act, Title VI, it demonstrably shows a lack of impartiality. For example, while it turned down the MEF intern announcement, it on May 2, 2005 circulated an invitation for a study trip to Gaza sponsored by the Faculty For Israeli - Palestinian Peace, a group that blames “the occupation” for all the region’s problems.

    This latest development again confirms the depth of the problems in Middle East studies at Columbia University (on which see http://www.campus-watch.org/survey.php/id/16). It also reconfirms that stakeholders in the university need to scrutinize its actions carefully.

    IRAN AND NUKES........Electromagnetics and Child Suicide Bombers, What a COMBO!

    Iran and its Nukes

    More than 400 men, women, and children gathered at a meeting in Tehran on Wednesday to pledge their commitment to carry out suicide bomb attacks against both Israelis and Americans in Iraq.

    (Check out the photo:An Iranian child wearing a headband with the inscription "There is no God but Allah" attends a suicide bomber registration meeting in Tehran (AP)

    "Some 440 volunteers, most of them women, signed up today," said Mohammad Ali Samadi,Irankid_art_0_1 spokesperson for the Headquarters for Commemorating Martyrs of the Global Islamic Movement, which organized the meeting.

    According to Samadi, members of his group -- which has sought volunteers for attaks in Iraq and Israel since last June -- have already carried out suicide attacks inside Israel against Israeli military targets. He added that "a few" of his fighters had been killed in the attacks, but his claims could not be confirmed since the group is not among those which have claimed responsibility for suicide bombings inside Israel.
     

    He added that several thousand have already been selected for training.

    Each of the group's 400-plus new recruits -- some of whom donned headbands with the inscription 'there is no God but Allah' -- were confronted with a difficult choice: to train for suicide attacks against U.S. troops in Iraq; to train for suicide attacks against Israelis; or to assassinate British author Salman Rushdie, the author forced into hiding after the late Ayatollah Khomeini ordered Muslims to kill him.

    The ceremony, which included the showcase of video footage depicting Israeli soldiers being killed in suicide attacks, was attended by the distinguished Mahdi Rahimian, head of the Martyr's Foundation and the Imam Khomeini Relief Committee, both quasi-governmental organizations run by hard-liners loyal to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

    Iran's hard-line rulers have long called for the destruction of Israel. This may be one reason why Iranians are barred from traveling to Israel. "You can't travel there with an Iranian passport," said Samadi. "Our suicide bombers enter the occupied Palestine in other ways."

    Sharon says worried world accepting "nuclear" Iran

    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon voiced concern on Thursday that the world was growing accustomed to the idea Iran would build a nuclear bomb but said the time was not ripe for military action to stop it.

    "Ultimately, I don't think there will be any alternative but to bring (Iran) to the U.N. Security Council and to take diplomatic and economic steps as pressure to stop this (nuclear effort)," Sharon told Israel Radio.

    "I am troubled by the fact -- we hear this perhaps more in Europe than in the United States -- that the world is beginning to grow accustomed to the idea that the day will come and Iran will be a member of the nuclear weapons club," he said.

    "This is particularly troubling, mainly because we are aware of Iran's threats against Israel. It is a country where even the so-called moderates speak of a national goal of destroying Israel and the Jewish people."

    Addendum to Report on Iraq's Weapons of Mass Destruction
    - Charles Duelfer (U.S. Central Intelligence Agency)

     

    • Iraq Survey Group (ISG) formed a working group to investigate the possibility of the evacuation of WMD-related material from Iraq prior to the 2003 War. The investigation centered on the possibility that WMD materials were moved to Syria. Whether Syria received military items from Iraq for safekeeping or other reasons has yet to be determined.
    • There was evidence of a discussion of possible WMD collaboration initiated by a Syrian security officer, and ISG received information about the movement of material out of Iraq, including the possibility that WMD was involved. In the judgment of the working group, these reports were sufficiently credible to merit further investigation. ISG was unable to complete its investigation and is unable to rule out the possibility that WMD was evacuated to Syria before the war. Firm conclusions on actual WMD movements may not be possible.
    • Based on evidence available at present, ISG judged that it was unlikely that an official transfer of WMD material from Iraq to Syria took place. However, ISG was unable to rule out unofficial movement of limited WMD-related materials.
    • Detainee de-briefs allowed ISG to confirm the use of the chemical agent VX during the Iran-Iraq war and the use of nerve gas agent in Karbala during the Shia uprising following the 1991 war.
    • So far there is little evidence that either foreign jihadists operating in Iraq or Iraq insurgent groups are attracting experts from the former regime's WMD programs. There are multiple reports of Iraqis with general chemical or biological expertise helping insurgents to produce chemical or biological agents. Unidentified members of the Supreme Council for Islamic Revolution in Iraq (SCIRI) allegedly smuggled an Iraq rocket scientist into Iran at the request of Iran's Ministry of Intelligence and Security.

    Beware of Diversionary Tactics: THIS IS THE REAL NEWS

    Bush_jewish_cookies_1Nuclear_blast_2
    yes yes I have been railing for months on Iran's explosive (no pun intended) NUKES and the Bolton nomination as  they are inextricably connected (as is Israel, Eurabia, China, well you get the picture). Iran's nukes set up a punishing set of circumstances, as this ain't no dress rehearsal. These boys are bad to the bone and if America's cujones aren't big enough then it's the end of the world as we know.
    It was my fervent prayer that Bush and Sharon were strategizing this very thing while Bush was serving up them Star of David sugar cookies.

    Official: Iran to Resume Nuke Enrichment

    Iran Official Says It Will Resume Uranium Enrichment Despite Outcome of Talks With Europeans

    By ALI AKBAR DAREINI Associated Press Writer

    The Associated PressThe Associated Press

    TEHRAN, Iran Apr 24, 2005 — Iran will resume uranium enrichment regardless of the outcome of its negotiations with three European powers over its nuclear program, a Foreign Ministry spokesman said Sunday.

    Speaking to reporters five days before Iran is to resume nuclear talks with France, Britain and Germany, Hamid Reza Asefi said the Europeans appeared to be serious in seeking an agreement with Iran. But he added that any settlement had to respect Iran's right, as a signatory to the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, to enrich uranium.

    The Europeans have been offering economic incentives in the hope that Iran will turn its temporary suspension of uranium enrichment activities into a permanent freeze.

    Asefi said Iran would not continue its suspension of enrichment for long.

    "It is not a matter of a year, but months," he said of the suspension, which was imposed last year to boost confidence ahead of negotiations.

    "If Iran feels that the Europeans intend to waste time by prolonging the talks, Iran won't insist on continuing the talks."

    The United States, backed by Israel, believes Iran is using a civilian nuclear development program as a cover to make atomic weapons. It has threatened to refer Iran to the U.N. Security Council, which can impose sanctions, but has held off pending the negotiations with the Europeans.

    UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL; SADDAM'S CAPTURE

    Saddam_2nd_all_file_10

    Hat tip DR JOHN , NAVY DOC
    If anyone is interested in visiting wounded troops recovering at
    Walter Reed, a party is held for the soldiers at Walter Reed
    Hospital in Washington DC every second Saturday of the month from
    12pm to 3pm. A local church provides the food, sometimes there is entertainment but most of all you can sit a talk with some
    extraordinary soldiers.  You can also bring gifts like certificates
    to Blockbuster, phone cards, stationary w/stamps to give to the
    soldiers (things that help to ease boredom or loneliness)

    One more thing, if anyone is interested in adopting a soldier, I  strongly recommend an organization called OperationAC.com OperationAC.com.  One requirement from OperationAC is that the adoptee purchase a pair of Altema desert boot ($99.00) to send to your
    adopted soldier, after that you can send anything your heart desires
    (except pork items and alcohol) One thing they love, a  small
    fan and it's a big hit. Thanks Susan, Lib Hawk

    SIMON WIESENTHAL CRITICIZES UN ON NAZI JEW-RAT CARTOON

    Saudi_antisemistismSWC Protests Saudi State Publication of Nazi Jew-Rat Cartoon

    The Wiesenthal Center had criticized the UN Commission on Human Rights (UNCHR) report of Doudou Diene (its Special Rapporteur on Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Forms of Intolerance) for its distinction between the campaign against antisemitism, on the one hand, and the danger of legitimizing anti-Zionism on the other.

    In a letter to Doudou Diene, the Center's Director for International Liaison, Dr Shimon Samuels, protested a cartoon in last week's ArabNews (billed as the first English-language Daily Newspaper in Saudi Arabia).  This depicted rats wearing Stars of David skullcaps, scurrying backwards and forwards through holes in the wall of an edifice bearing the poster "Palestine House" (see www.arabnews.com/cartoon/).

    Samuels stated, "This imagery copies the scene of the Nazi film 'Jew Suess' that depicts Jews as vermin, to be eradicated by mass extermination.  That scene, replicated in cartoons in the Hitlerist media, would be legally actionable today in most European courts."

    VIVA LE BUSH DOCTINE!! LONG LIVE BUSH!

    FINALLY! Bush says what has needed to be said for decades..........G-d love him. Hamas Hizbollah FINITO. And let me say if Hamas wins out and beats Abbas in the oncoming Pali elections, that is a DECLARATION OF WAR. No ambiguity, no gray area........... it's time to fight the real war and put an end to all this appeasement and moral equivocation.

    ARUTZ: Bush Demands Syria Shut Down Hizbullah Defense/Security
    American President George W. Bush demanded Tuesday night that Syria not only withdraw from Lebanon but also shut down Hizbullah terrorist operations.

    Hizbullah "is a dangerous organization," the President said on a Lebanese Broadcasting Corporation broadcast. "There is a reason why we've put Hizbullah on a terrorist list. They've killed Americans in the past. We will continue to work with the international community to keep them on that list and we will continue to pressure this group... You can't have a free country if a group of people are like an armed militia."

    Bush also called for Syria to withdraw totally from Lebanon and to stop supporting Hizbullah: “The United States can join with the rest of the world... and say to Syria, get out -- not only get out with your military forces, but get out with your intelligence services, too; get completely out of Lebanon, so Lebanon can be free and the people can be free."

    Hizbullah has been increasing its strength over the past several years, ever since its attacks on Israeli soldiers succeeded in forcing then-Prime Minister Ehud Barak to withdraw IDF troops from the southern Lebanon "security zone." Israeli forces had been there since the 1982 "Peace for Galilee" War, and were withdrawn in April 2000. The withdrawal encouraged the Palestinian Authority to launch the Oslo War five months later.

    Since Israel's withdrawal from Lebanon, many of the Hizbullah tactics and weapons have found their way across the Syrian-controlled Lebanese border into Israel. They are largely found in the Jenin, Tul Karem and Shechem areas of Samaria. Both Israel and the United States have accused Syria of financing and encouraging the Hizbullah terrorists

    Horrifying Hamas Victory in Gaza

    This sickens me. My worst fears realized. Rewarding for bloodlust and heinous terrorism.
    The absolute worst thing we could do.  You cannot negotiate a peace if the war has not been won. You have no leverage. Much like the US at the Paris peace talks with the Vietnamese enemy. We had basically war had that won on the ground but we negotiated too soon, before their surrender and so we lost our upper hand. And they played hardball. Those talks were difficult.
    This is far worse. Hamas are the worst of the worst. Animals, killers, and coldblooded homicde bombers.........this is a frontrunner in the next Pali elections........it's a cruel joke on my people.
    Hamas_2Hamas: Gaza Pullout is Hamas Victory - Stephen Farrell
    Mahmoud Zahar, 60, Hamas's senior leader in Gaza, told The Times that Hamas will not only challenge Mahmoud Abbas's Fatah movement in legislative elections in July, but also seek to topple it from leadership of the Palestinian parliament. He made clear that Hamas intends to claim Israel's withdrawal from Gaza as a retreat under fire and victory for its campaign of violence. Ominously, he refused to commit Hamas to peace in Gaza once Israel withdraws its 9,000 settlers. "Our goal is...to keep the mood of the Palestinian people anti-occupation, to move towards a new strategy: co-operation with the Arabs, not co-operation with the Israelis," Zahar said. (Times-UK)

    Kill a Jew, get a Home!

    This is hard to imagine happening but it is happening. It is the policy of every Demcratic nation state that there be no negotiating,  no doing business with terrorists. Isn't that what Condi said yesterday  exactly to the word  regarding the American contractor kidnapped in Iraq? And yet it is the US pressuring Israel -- " under the auspices of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the World Bank indicated that it intends to assume the assets of those Jews whom the Israeli government intends to expel from teir homes and farms in Katif and Samaria" . The bank subsequently intends to hand over these assets to senior Palestinian Authority security official Muhammad Dahlan as reported in FrontPagemag.com

    Kill a Jew, Get His House
    By David Bedein

    No democratic state should ever do business with terrorists, let alone those who would target aBlood_money_1 school buses. But Israel, under pressure from the United States, may be forced to do just that.

    In talks that took place this past week in Aspen, Colorado , under the auspices of Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, the World Bank indicated that it intends to assume the assets of those Jews whom the Israeli government intends to expel from their homes and farms in Katif and Samaria the banksubsequently intends to hand over these assets to senior Palestinian Authority security official Muhammad Dahlan. There is no requirement that Dahlan and others who receive these assets have no past involvement with terrorism.

    Yet this runs counter to the government of Israe’s decision of June 6 2004, in clause 7 of the plan put forward by Ariel Sharon. The clause states: in clause 7 of the plan put forward by Ariel Sharon. The clause states:


    The State of Israel will aspire to transfer other facilities, including industrial, commercial and agricultural ones, to a third, international party which will put them to use for the benefit of the Palestinian population that is not involved in terror.

    However, in a June 2004 monograph prepared by the World Bank for the government of Israel and the PLO, entitled “Disengagement, the Palestinian Economy and the settlements and issued by The World Bank,” and signed by then-World Bank president James Wolfenson, there is a detailed program for the transfer of all Jewish assets to the Palestinian authority. In this document there is no prerequisite that those who receive the assets have no involvement with terror. The World Bank simply eliminated the phrase "not involved in terror" and explained that "the State of Israel will aspire to transfer other structures, such as industrial and agricultural facilities, to an international third party that will use them for the benefit of the Palestinian population." In other words, the World Bank clearly intends to hand over assets without any anti-terror clause.


    Significantly, the man to whom the World Bank intends to hand over those assets, Muhammad Dahlan, is defined by the government of
    Israel as a terrorist. In a June, 2002 editorial in the Wall Street Journal, Israel's Deputy Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called Dahlan the man who has presided over an ever-fortified terrorist network in Gaza, which today is home to Hamas and Islamic Jihad, and has become the base for some of the most heinous terrorist attacks unleashed against Israel.

    Relying on confirmed intelligence information, Olmert explained that Dahlan pel.ermitted to become a safe haven for the hundreds of fugitive terrorists fleeing Israeli forces. Among those being sheltered is his childhood friend Mohammed Dief, a leading Hamas mastermind with the blood of scores of Israelis on his hands. Dahlan's district also became the primary launching grounds for the hundreds of Kessem missiles fired at  Isra

    Blah Blah Blah-

    BUT IS NOT BLAH BLAH BLAH! The Palis and their brothers are still very much in the business of terror while fallaciously walking the walk and talking the talk of ceasefire. Meanwhile, Israel, is giving up LAND, blood and treasure. Who are the real lunatics here?

    Rifle-Smuggling into Gaza Nipped in the Bud; Terror Continues Defense/Security
      The porous Israeli-Egyptian border at Gaza was partially stopped up last night, when Israeli security authorities discovered and confiscated a stash of 36 rifles about to be smuggled into Gaza.

    An Israeli Border Police unit thwarted the smuggling of the Kalachnikov automatic rifles, but nine men involved in the attempt managed to flee the scene back into Egypt. Some 140 Kalachnikov rifles have been intercepted by Israeli forces along the Egyptian border since January 1, 2005 - a tiny amount in comparison with those that were not intercepted. According to army estimates, between July 2004 and February 2005, over 3,000 assault rifles were smuggled into Gaza, as well as 400,000 bullets, 400 pistols, and 600 kilograms of explosives.

    An Arab mob took advantage of the overturning of an IDF jeep in Bethlehem late this afternoon, and began stoning the rescue force that came to help the soldiers. Four soldiers were hurt, including one in light-to-moderate condition, and an Arab who threw bricks at the soldiers was shot and wounded.

    A teenaged Arab boy attempted to stab an IDF soldier at the Fouriq Checkpoint in Shomron, east of Shechem, this afternoon. The attacker was taken into custody without having succeeded in his goal.

    Near Shechem yesterday, a 15-year-old Arab boy was caught after being hired by Palestinian terrorists to carry five pipe-bombs into pre-1967 Israel.

    This is a MUST READ: David Horowitz's Unholy Alliance: The "Peace Left" and the Islamic Jihad Against America

    You must read Horowitz's piece on the Islamic Jihad against America to better grasp how the left is/will destroy America. I am a huge fan of FrontPage.com (no conflict of interest, he has linked to me for my Academic Posts, his reason d'etre , Academic Integrity).

    By David Horowitz and John Perazzo
    FrontPageMagazine.com | April 13, 2005Unholy_alliance

    [Authors’ note: This is the first in a series of articles and visual maps describing the unholy alliances that have been formed between American leftists and radical Islam, unlikely allies who have joined efforts to oppose America’s defensive War on Terror and its war of liberation in Iraq. These are mainly (but not exclusively) de facto alliances, much as the Hitler-Stalin Pact was an alliance of convenience based on a common interest: the enemy of my enemy is my friend. This article is accompanied by a "visual map" which displays the actual alliance between the so-called American "peace left" and organizations that are part of, or supportive of, the radical Islamic jihad against the United States. This map is one of the hundreds of similar maps we have devised for DiscoverTheNetwork.org, our encyclopedic guide to the political left.]

    The present article focuses on the so-called "peace left" – so called because most of the individuals participating in it are not pacifists and are not really interested in peace as such, but in radical agendas that are served by opposing America’s war on terror. (Thus there were no "peace" demonstrations at the Iraqi embassy calling on the government of Saddam Hussein to comply with seventeen U.N. resolutions which the war was undertaken to enforce.)

    The peace left’s core consists of the ideological descendents of the communist/progressive left that wanted the West to lose the Cold War to the Soviet Union. This no mere motley crew of inconsequential fringe extremists, but is in fact the well-organized, militant, and immensely influential driving force behind the contemporary peace movement and the enormous anti-war rallies it has recently staged. Upon the foundation of its hatred for the United States, the peace left has forged its alliance with radical Islam, whose wellspring of anti-American hatred runs just as deep.

    In word and deed, both of these allies make it plain that they consider everything about the United States to be evil and unworthy of preservation; that they wish to see American society and its way of life crushed by any means necessary, including violent revolution. Their position was well summarized by the now-infamous professor Ward Churchill, who asserted that terrorist violence directed against the United States is a morally justifiable response to what he characterizes as the U.S. government’s "rape" and "murder" of other peoples. "If we want an end to violence," says Churchill, "especially that perpetrated against civilians, we must take the responsibility for halting the slaughter perpetrated by the United States around the world." Churchill does not, however, harbor any hopes that America might mend its alleged flaws; rather, he advocates the country’s destruction: "I want the state gone: transform the situation to U.S. out of North America. U.S. off the planet. Out of existence altogether." Toward this end, Churchill candidly endorses further acts of anti-American terror. "One of the things I’ve suggested," he says, "is that it may be that more 9/11s are necessary." Lamenting that the terrorism of 9/11 had proved "insufficient to accomplish its purpose" of eviscerating the United States, Churchill wrote, "What the hell? It was worth a try."

    These sentiments are echoed by no less a figure than Osama bin Laden, who in 1998 issued the following edict: "We—with God’s help—call on every Muslim who believes in God and wishes to be rewarded to comply with God’s order to kill the Americans and plunder their money wherever and whenever they find it. We also call on Muslim ulema, leaders, youths, and soldiers to launch the raid on Satan’s U.S. troops and the devil’s supporters allying with them, and to displace those who are behind them so that they may learn a lesson. The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies—civilians and military—is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it."

    Hizbollah fronting for Syria while flying Drone over Israel

    They say it's no big deal but it scares the begeezus outta me............or is Israel luring them, "daring' them to take them on. Still stinks from on high (or low in this case).........WTF are we waiting for?

    For the second time in less than six months, Hizbullah on Monday managed to infiltrate a drone into Israel's airspace over the Galilee without it being detected and intercepted by the IAF.

    The incident came amid warnings by Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz and senior security officials that Hizbullah might try to heat up the northern border during the Syrian withdrawal from Lebanon and the disengagement from the Gaza Strip.

    After the first penetration by a pilotless plane in November last year, the IAF boosted its detection and interception capabilities in the North to prevent future occurrences.

    The measures did not succeed, however, and on Monday afternoon another unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flew over Western Galilee, including Acre, Ma'alot, Nahariya and Shlomi, as well as kibbutzim and moshavim.

    IAF planes and helicopter gunships were scrambled, but the drone, not one of the fastest of aerial vehicles, was apparently brought safely back to Lebanon by its operators.Hezbollah

    The IDF confirmed that a Hizbullah drone had been spotted over Western Galilee and that the incident was being examined, but called it a Hizbullah attempt at "propaganda".

    This is ugly and I don't like it and neither should you. Terrorists flying drones over Israel........hellloooooooooo?  [pic: Hezbollah raids were a model for Pali terrorists]

    *Any tit-for-tat  exchange (Israel and Hezbollah aka Syria) in which these missiles were launched would trigger a massive Israeli military operation against Lebanon - "turning it into a parking lot," according to one analyst.

    Bad News Dept.: Get Used to NUCLEAR IRAN

    One can only hope  when Sharon and Bush met  last week, this was their real objective and thatNuclear_blast_1 the tactical strategy on taking these babies out was finalized. We can only hope. Iran: "Get Used to the Idea of a Nuclear Iran" - Ayelet Savyon
    Head of the Iranian negotiating team in the nuclear committee in the EU Three-Iran talks, Sirus Nasseri, recently stated that there is no possibility of Iran permanently relinquishing its uranium enrichment: "This is something we are not willing to consider." The U.S. and the EU should "get used to the idea of a nuclear Iran." Iranian President Khatami said: "The Europeans will suffer more than Iran if they decide to capitulate to U.S. pressure." Former representative to the IAEA Dr. Ali Akbar Salehi was even more blunt: "Europe should understand that its security is closely linked to Iran's security." (Memri)

    If Advertisers can Sue Google for Overcharging, can the Jews SUE FOR INCITEMENT TO MURDER?

    So advertisers are "quietly" suing Google (among others for "overcharging"). My question is if the advertisers can sue over SRP, can the Jews sue for INCITEMENT TO COMMIT MURDER, ACCESSORY BEFORE THE FACT, CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT ETC. If I was a lawyer, I'd be all over it

    In today's Wall Street Journal;

    A group of advertisers quietly filed a lawsuit in February against Google Inc., Yahoo Inc. and other Internet companies in a potentially important legal test of those companies' liability for a form of online-advertising fraud.Hamas

    The plaintiffs, led by Lane's Gifts & Collectibles LLC, a Texarkana, Ark., retailer, allege that the Internet companies knowingly overcharged for advertisements they sold and conspired with each other to continue doing so. The plaintiffs are seeking to have their suit, which hasn't received widespread attention, certified as a class action.

    And if you recall not so long ago Little Green Footballs reported the following;
    The largest news service in Israel, Ynet, reports that Google has been running advertisements for the recruitment web site of the terrorist group Hamas, that show up when the word “Hamas” is entered in Arabic;

    Terror organizations are advancing their recruitment and public relations methods: Internet surfers who enter the word “Hamas” in Arabic in the Google search engine, will view, in addition to the search results, an AdWord message that links directly to the website of the organization’s military faction Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades.

    The link also appears in a search of several other words, such as the “Gaza,” “Palestine,” “Jihad.”

    This indicates that a Hamas source has paid Google, the most popular search engine on the web, for the advertisement.

    Google’s AdWord service offer registered surfers the opportunity to purchase search words and post text messages that are linked to certain websites. The AdWords also appear in G-mail, Google’s email service, and on other websites on Google’s advertising network Adsense.

    Google has automatic filters that prohibit the posting of links to “problematic” websites, such as gambling and sex websites, but as of now they can only identify English words.

    Company Spokeswoman Debbie Frost said “we took care of the matter as soon as Ynet turned to us,” but Ynet has learned the advertisements have not been removed as of yet

    Iran Offers Cash for Bombs to Break Palestinian Truce - Marie Colvin
    Palestinian fighters have revealed that Hizballah, the militant Lebanese group backed by Iran, is offering to pay for attacks aimed at shattering the fragile truce with Israel. The men, all on Israel's most wanted list and members of the al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades near Nablus, said they had received payments of up to $9,000 from Hizballah for attacks against Israel during the past four years. They said most of the money from Hizballah had been sent to Islamic Jihad. "They just use Western Union," said Ala'a Sanakreh, 27, the leader of the group. According to Sanakreh, those who had since been offered money by Hizballah had turned it down. Their leaders had made it clear that Mahmoud Abbas should be given a chance to negotiate with the Israelis. (Sunday Times-UK)

    and then there are the busy Jews, chopping and building and planning and disengaging

    Jenin and Gaza to be Connected to Railway Despite Disengagement (arutz sheva) Economy/Society
    Israel Railways has announced a 280-million shekel ($65 million) plan to connect terror centers Jenin and Gaza with the national railways.

    Railway officials hope the trains will promote economic growth. Critics of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's disengagement plan, however, suggest that the new train system mean that even after Israel implements a "separation" plan, Israelis and PA Arabs will continue to be intertwined.

    The plan calls for an 11-kilometer (6.8-mile) line from Jenin, in northern Samaria, to Afula and the Jezreel Valley. This line will then connect with the planned route from Haifa to Beit She’an. In addition, a 7-kilometer (4.3-mile) link will be built in the area of Gaza, connecting with the planned Be'er Sheva-Ashkelon line.

    Both routes aim to link factories with ports in Ashkelon and Haifa.

    Rail officials also plan to develop a cargo and passenger terminal at the Erez Crossing, north of Gaza City. They say that the links are necessary to stimulate economic growth in the Palestinian Authority, which they claim will promote peace.

    Israel's railway system has grown dramatically in the past five years, making it a more frequent target for terrorist attacks. Three Jews were murdered in a terrorist suicide blast outside the Nahariya train station on Sept. 9,. 2001, and in April 2003, a security guard was similarly killed in an attack at the Kfar Saba train station.

    Additional long-term Israel Railways projects include trains to the Jordanian border, with links from there to other Arab countries.

    No Honor among Pali Thieves......Whadda buncha THUGS, the Case of the Little Black Bag

    Bagman

    From the truth is stranger than fiction file: Arafish's black bag of stolen millions is missing! You don't say! And it seems that because every one of his entourage of hoodlums were serial theives (as well as murderers), the thief could be one of a great manytop level Pali government aids. And to think thats my taxpyer money *spit*. This from todays Jerusalem Post:

       

    On his journeys around the world, Yasser Arafat was in the habit of taking a  suitcase full of cash for "emergency" cases.   

       

    Once, the suitcase, known among his inner circle as the "black bag," used to  contain $170,000 in cash. The sum, used for "miscellaneous" expenses – including  gifts, bribes and tips – was later raised to $500,000.   

       

    On his last trip to Paris in late October, the ailing Arafat did not forget  to take along the suitcase, which this time contained $1.6 million. Arafat even  had a special aide whose only job was to carry the "black bag" and distribute  money according to his boss's instructions.   

       

    But when Arafat's coffin was returned to Ramallah aboard an Egyptian military  helicopter two weeks later, many PA officials noticed that the suitcase was  missing. Some assumed that Arafat's bag-carrier had returned the suitcase with  the money to the PA chairman's office. Others did not bother to ask for fear of  alienating Arafat's top cronies.   

       

    Hafez Barghouti, editor of the Ramallah-based daily Al-Hayat  Al-Jadeeda, revealed that the PA had launched an investigation into the  circumstances of the disappearance of Arafat's cash-filled suitcase.   

       

    "Arafat's secret-keeper who carried the black bag has gone to work in the  Palestinian embassy in Moscow and no one knows what happened to the suitcase,"  he said.   

       

    Barghouti accused the unnamed bag-carrier of stealing the suitcase and hinted  to the involvement of many of Arafat's longtime aides in the theft.   

       

    He recalled a case where a reporter once asked Arafat for financial  assistance. Arafat summoned the man with the suitcase and ordered him to pay the  journalist a specified sum of money.   

       

    But when the journalist counted the money, he found that it was less than the  amount Arafat had promised him. He immediately complained to Arafat, who  summoned the trusted aide and severely reprimanded him in the presence of all  those who were in the room.   

       

    The aide apologized for the "mistake" before rushing to a nearby room and  returning with an envelope that contained the missing sum.   

       

    "I wonder how many 'mistakes' this bag-holder has made over the past  decades," Barghouti said. "Most of those who used to receive money from Arafat  did not dare count it. They would quickly put the money in their pockets and  leave, believing that Arafat, not the bag-carrier, had deducted a certain sum."

    EVIL IS THY NAME, Palis and Islamic Jihad Marched for Syria (not the Lebanese)

    I know how shocking this will sound (/sarc) but it was Palistinians marching for Syria in Gaza and also at those pro-Syrian demonstrations in Lebanon last week. Yes yes, the very ones that got all that media coverage, while the real heros marching and risking their lives for democracy got gotz on the cable and network news. FOX should be ashamed. They have abandoned their role. I expect as much from the other LLL media but what could be more unfair and unbalanced?

    The rally was organized by the Islamic Jihad and followed Friday prayer sessions. Protestors expressed their support for Lebanon’s pro-Syrian regime and called on Damascus to stand up to international pressure.

    The protestors also expressed their support for Hizbullah leader Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah and called on the group to continue fighting against Israel and resist calls to disarm.

     

    The demonstrators said international pressures exerted on Syria and the  Hizbullah are meant to serve Israel’s interests. [uh................what about the Lebanese people? argh, Atlas]

      Senior figures in the Islamic Jihad delivered speeches during the rally  and also praised the Hizbullah and Syria.

    How Many Arab-Americans?
    March 9, 2005

       

    How Many Arab-Americans? It's bad enough that the Islamist organizations more than double the actual number of Muslims living in the United States (as I showed in a 2001 article, "How Many U.S. Muslims?"). Worse  is that the Arab-American organizations are now tripling their alleged  population, as I briefly noted in  November 2003. Trouble is, that whereas the U.S. Bureau of the Census cannot ask about religious affiliation, it can and does ask about ethnicity, so we do have hard statistics on Arab-Americans, undercutting the silly, boosterish claims.

       

    A census study released yesterday, We the People of Arab  Ancestry in the United States (why the cloying title, by the way?), reports on the 2000 figures: Approximately 850,000 U.S. residents report exclusive Arab ancestry, while about 340,000 residents report both Arab and non-Arab ancestry. In other words, a total of 1,190,000 residents report Arab ancestry on at least one side, or 0.3 percent of the total U.S. population.

       

    To these figures, James Zogby sourly  responds that his organization, the Arab American Institute, "projects the ethnic population to be more than 3 times the number of ancestry responses" found by the census bureau. Al-Jazeera  reports that Nawar Shora, legal adviser for the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, says the alleged undercount results from fear among Arab-Americans "because of the negative stereotypes that exist about the community."

       

    Comments: It would be a sign of maturity when the Arab American Institute and the American-Arab Anti Discrimination Committee stop bellyaching about the census numbers, deflate their own figures, and begin to deal with reality. (March 9, 2005)

    Yes, it Makes me Happy when the Animals turn the Guns Against Each Other

    I am sure I will take mega-criticism for this but frankly, I don"t give a __________. I am too tired of all the things that go unsaid in the name of political correctness (euphemism for antisemitism).

    In a continuing violent development, the terrorists have yet again turned the gun toward themselves. AT EACH OTHER, for a distinct and welcomed change. And I expect to hear from an number of you insisting that Abbas is the good guy..............well if that is indeed true then he will deal with these terrorists for what they are...........COLD BLOODED KILLERS. Until I am proven otherwise I am unwilling to sacrifice one more delicious Israeli life to their bloodlust.

    I am tired of murderers, terrorists, and wanton killers being referred to as "militants", "gunmen", "freedom fighters", or whatver flavor of the week "al aksa"," fatah", "plo", it's all smoke and mirrors - the killers are the same animals over and over again.

    Al-Aksa gunmen shoot up party meeting in challenge to Abbas leadership
    By Associated Press March 10, 2005/Israeli Insider, click headline

    Palestinian gunmen burst into a meeting of the ruling Fatah Party on Thursday, shooting into the air and forcing participants to disperse in a brazen challenge to Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas. The incident cast doubt on his authority as he comes under increasing pressure from Israel to disarm militants.

    More than 1,000 Fatah grass roots activists were meeting in the West Bank city of Ramallah when two dozen gunmen dressed in military-style fatigues, their faces covered, burst into the room in a shiny new hotel where the session was in progress. The gunmen, from the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a violent group affiliated with Fatah, rampaged through the room and shouted slogans charging the Fatah leadership with complicity in widespread corruption. Shocked participants ducked and scrambled for the exits as the intruders, brandishing their assault rifles, began throwing chairs around, ordering everyone to leave.

    The meeting broke up in disarray, and as the Fatah members fled, the gunmen fired in the air outside the hall for several minutes. No one was hurt, but the gunmen made their point -- the session did not reconvene. "Our demands are for change and reform," said Menwer al-Aqraa, an Al Aqsa commander in Ramallah, without elaborating. He said, however, that his group would not disarm

    Pali security guard looks at members of the Fatah party as they leave a hotel in the West Bank town of Ramallah Thursday March 10, 2005, after more than 20 Palestinian gunmen burst into a large gathering of this ruling party, ordered people out of the building and fired shots into the air.

    From the "DONT HOLD YOUR BREATH" Department

    Yes yes I know and OJ is innocent.................this makes me sick.  Translation: If we find any NON JEWISH BLOOD on Hezbollahs' hands, then they are a terrorist organization. A pox be upon them.

    EU Eyeing Hizballah - Herb KeinonThe European Parliament on Thursday backed taking measures against Hizballah if evidence indicates that the group is involved in terrorist operations. However, they did not put Hizballah on a European list of terrorist organizations after a proposal to do so was dropped. Nonetheless, Israeli officials welcomed the resolution that was approved, which they said reflects a growing European awareness as to the real essence of Hizballah. (Jerusalem Post)

    The Department of Defense and Islam; ENEMIES, A LOVE STORY

    LGF ran a piece earlier today questioning CAIR's use of the Department of Defense's email list "Why is the DoD email list used by CAIR? (click)". At first it sounded subversive and underhanded, but maybe it is a collaboration. Look at this lawsuit just filed by Judicial Watch (smells like cahoots to me):
    After almost a year of stonewalling and bureaucratic double-talk, we filed a lawsuit against the Defense Department seeking documents about a very dubious Pentagon program to develop an Internet web site, with the help of highly paid ($40 million over 4 years) media consultants, called “Empower Peace.” The Pentagon’s “Empower Peace” website targets American and Islamic school age children, their teachers and schools, to participate in a “grassroots” peace movement and “cultural awareness.” This is not just a question of reckless spending and poor allocation of assets and efforts. The Smith-Mundt Act of 1948 (22 U.S.C. Sec. 1461), forbids the domestic dissemination of U.S. government authored or developed propaganda or “official news” deliberately designed to influence public opinion or policy. Why is the Pentagon involving itself in this sort of nonsense?

    Does the Plumbing Really Matter?

    A front page piece in today's Wall Street Journal does not bode well for the direction of Iraqi politics. While a great fuss is beng made about the proactive  involvement and subsequent effect the women of Iraq (and the Middle East for that matter) will make on democracy, if they are devout muslems and believers in Shar'ia, does the plumbing really matter? Mind you, I am a huge supporter of the Bush Doctrine and the US invasion of Iraq, but such developments must not be ignored. Here is an excerpt from today's WSJ, click on the headline to read the entire aritcle by WSJ staff reporter FARNAZ FASSIHI.

       

    Over the past two years, Fatima Yaqoub has gone from sewing dresses at home to shaping municipal policies as a councilwoman in Kathamiya, a bustling district in Iraq's capital.

       

    Ms. Yaqoub has organized computer courses for women and traveled to Egypt for a U.S.-funded course on constitutional and human-rights law. During the Iraqi elections in January, she supervised a polling station and oversaw the counting of the ballots.

       

    In many ways, Ms. Yaqoub, 40 years old, is emblematic of the kind of gender equality the U.S. and many Iraqis envision for the new Iraq. But the devout Shiite Muslim is part of a group of increasingly powerful female politicians seeking to erase laws that provide women with some of the same rights as men.

       

    She favors allowing Iraqi men to have as many as four wives and repealing laws that guarantee alimony payments and child-custody rights for women in divorces. Ms. Yaqoub also believes in decreasing the amount of money women stand to gain in inheritances and removing legal barriers to the marriage of girls younger than 18 years old.

       

    [Fatima Yacoub]   

    Ms. Yaqoub is in the vanguard of a major push by Iraq's Shiite religious and political leaders to introduce aspects of Islamic "Sharia" law into Iraq's legal code, especially where it concerns family matters and women's rights. Sharia is Islam's version of divine law, drawn from the Koran and other religious texts.

       

    In Iraq's recent election, Shiite candidates won by a landslide and secured a little more than half of the 275 seats in the national assembly. When the new government meets for the first time later this month, its most immediate task will be to draft a new constitution and pave the way for a new round of elections by this December.

    Media Ahms for the Terrorists, Bubkis for Those Yearning to be Free

    Can anyone tell me why these Hizbollah protests are  completely drenching the airwaves? I dont know about you but I couldn't find jack on all the democracy and freedom marches taking place through the world this past week - all self propelled mind you (the only distinct coverage was out of the blogworld, Charles Johnson, Lizardmaster of LGF and his bloggettes of which I am one).

    No, all we saw was martha and michael michael and martha even FOX (they have really lost their moral compass lately, I expect agenda advancing bias reporting  from the other guys)

       

    media ahms for the terrorists, nothing for those yearning to be free

    Tell me how much did you hear about these very recent rallys: Morrocans march by the thousands for Freedom (click) Pakistani women against punitive rape (click) Kuwait women rallying for the vote (click)

    and of course all the freedom protests in Syria.

    This, the MSM (mainstream media) deems unimportant. Ugh. Knowing Hezbollahs MO (modus operandi) I say this mob was bought. Clearly planned in advance. You know the deal: threats, extortion, free lunches, coercion, printed ENGLISH signs ( I mean really, "no Foreign Interference" who talks like that in Lebanon?Sounds lefty Mad Ave/media spin to me). Bribes and coercion. Bussed in a couple of miles from Syria.

    Those Lebanese people marching for freedom are risking their lives, as Syrian secret police take down their names and wait for the unflattering shade of limelight to fade so that they can get back to their dirty business.

    Madawaskan makes an interesting observation on LGF

       

    I also saw this reported on CBC or ITN. It was about the poor living conditions of the Syrian immigrant workers in Lebanon.. How they feared for their own safety from the Lebanese. It showed a factory that had lost all fifteen workers because they had left already. There were three Syrian immigrant workers who were camping out in a building they were also helping to construct. One of them said he wanted to stay in Lebanon,or would go anywhere else except back to Syria.

    I think it is highly probable that the large number of pro-Syrian protesters in Lebanon today are augmented by some of these 800,000 Syrian workers who don’t want to return to SyriaIronic

    Palestinian Terror Controlled by Iran

    While I can't say I am surprised, I found it somewhat reassuring to read this in a MSM left wing organ like TIME magazine (written with the omnipresent left wing slant of course, I mean G-d forbid it not Bush bash). But it reinforces the fundamental thinking of the right, hardly a band of disparate outlaw barbaric murderers, the deliberate and strategic network of state sponsored terrorism comes into the bright light of day. Out of the fog of mendacity, the Bush doctrine and the "Axis of Evil" is hardly myth, but brutal truth. What more do the naysayers need? This is World War IV............Godspeed

    Palestinian Islamic Jihad Is Controlled by Iran - Interview with Martin Indyk - Elaine ShannonAccording to Martin Indyk, former Assistant Secretary of State for Near East Affairs and U.S. Ambassador to Israel during the Clinton administration, "What Secretary Rice knows and hasn't said is that the Palestinian Islamic Jihad is controlled by Iran. While it's important, essential, to get the Syrians to shut down the PIJ office in Damascus, it's also important to be clear about what the source of the problem is. From the mid-1990s, Iran has been determined to use PIJ terrorist operations to disrupt the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, and there is a very clear of pattern of PIJ activities during the intifada. Whenever [the region] calmed down, it was the PIJ that launched terrorist attacks, because the Iranians have a very strong interest in preventing the peace process from going forward. We should be pointing the finger at Iran and pressuring them, with the Europeans, to stop this sponsorship of terrorism against the Israeli-Palestinian peace process." (TIME)

    What Happened to the Goddamn BUSH DOCTRINE!

    Surprise Surprise Surprise. Syria did it! duh.........no! Now what? More diplomatic masturbation? More billions for mob contracts on Jewish lives to the Palis (currently being considered in England) yecch! Moral Inversion! Moral equivalence! Where is our Morality and why have we forsaken it? She sobs.....

    Israel Intercepted Order from Jihad Leader in Damascus for Tel Aviv BombingIsraeli intelligence officers briefed ambassadors of the EU, the G8, and the UN Security Council on Friday's Tel Aviv bombing. They read from a transcript of an intercepted telephone call in which Ramadan Shallah, Islamic Jihad's Damascus-based leader, ordered a West Bank commander to go ahead with the bombing. Mark Regev, the foreign ministry spokesman, said: "In a regime like the Syrian regime, such an order could not come from Damascus unless the regime was acquiescing or collaborating." (Independent-UK) Western Donors Weigh Billions for Palestinians - Josh MeyerTop U.S. and European officials met with the new Palestinian leadership in London to consider $4.5 billion or more in new aid that they hope will bolster the Palestinian government. Pledging money may prove to be the easy part. The larger challenge will be avoiding the corruption that drained the life out of aid programs during Arafat's long tenure. "Things haven't changed as much as they need to change, and it is going to be very difficult," said Danielle Pletka of the American Enterprise Institute. The PA has received billions of dollars for schools, hospitals, roads and other basic needs in the last decade, one of the most expensive development programs ever on a per-capita basis. But millions of dollars disappeared. Last year Congress stipulated that outside auditors must be able to monitor how the money was used. But a few months ago, as Congress considered a request for another $20 million, aides said they learned that U.S. auditors were not permitted to enter the building where they thought the records were.

    Abu Ali, Terrorist would be Assassin of President Bush

    Someone pinch me................ I must be in the middle of an unending nightmare. Here we have Abu Ali, would be assassin of our President of the United States, trained in a Saudi Wahhabi school right here in the Good ole U S of A and the MSM, the major news outlets - nobody (save the blogs) give a shit.
    What up?
    It is staggering how the delusion grows and debilitates this great nation. The ACLU exists solely to undermine our efforts to protect and defend ourselves. Every lawsuit the ACLU has filed against the government concerning the War of Terror (euphemisim) is against the US. Us, thats right , not one one lawsuit has been filed in effect to defend this nation. Only to protect the terrorists.
    Daniel Pipes' recent piece on Abu Ali is a MUST READ. He, to me, is Moshe  the Beadle iin Elie Weisel's NIGHT .............................................

    The Abu Ali Case and] Balancing Liberties, Security
    by  Daniel Pipes
    New York Sun
    March 1, 2005

       

    For a free people in the age of terrorism, what is the proper balance between  civil liberties and national security?

     

    This debate wracks every Western country. Looking at America, the "united we stand" solidarity that followed September 11, 2001, lasted just some months, after which a much deeper divide emerged as conservatives proved far more  profoundly affected by the atrocities than did liberals. The result has been  the growing political acrimony of the past three years.

     

    Many examples illustrate this divide. For the most recent, take the argument concerning Ahmed Omar Abu Ali between the conservative Bush administration and its mostly liberal critics.

     

    Born in America to immigrant Jordanian parents, Mr. Abu Ali, 23, was indicted last week for plotting the assassination of President Bush. The prosecution  asserts he was in touch with Al Qaeda and in 2002 discussed ideas of eliminating Mr. Bush by getting "close enough to the president to shoot him on the street," or by deploying a car bomb. Mr. Abu Ali's biography indicates how he might have ended up as an Al Qaeda operative.

     

    He attended the Islamic Saudi Academy in Alexandria, Va., graduating in 1999 as class valedictorian. As an outpost of Saudi values on American soil, the academy enjoys Saudi government funding, is chaired by the Saudi ambassador in Washington, and boasts a curriculum imported straight from Riyadh.

    A Wrong Turn in the War On Terror? What happened to Pipes' Nomination?

    In August 2003, news leaked of Pipes'  imminent appointment to the U.government-sponsored U.S.  Institute of Peace. Soon afterwards, a broad array of Arab-American, American Muslim, and other groups, vehemently denounced the appointment, claiming that Pipes was a racist, anti-Islamic extremist. Several Democratic senators,  including Ted Kennedy  (D-Massachusetts) and Christopher Dodd  (D-Connecticut), expressed  opposition to the nomination and delayed a committee vote on it, though President Bush bypassed  the Senate and proceeded with a recess appointment.

     

    This incident was the latest in the series of confrontations Pipes has had with various U.S-based Islamic groups, especially the Council on American-Islamic  Relations (CAIR). CAIR maintains that Pipes is an anti-Islamic bigot, while Pipes in turn charges that CAIR is an apologist for Islamist terrorist groups like Hezbollah and Hamas (see external links). Daniel Pipes is a light in a sea of murder, mendacity aand barbarism. His is a strident, informed authority on the infrastructure of the malignancy that is radical fundementalism. He "gets"it - poor bastard

    Daniel Pipes and the U.S. Institute of Peace   

    President George W. Bush nominated Daniel Pipes to the board of the United States Institute of Peace on April 1, 2003. It went to the Senate the next day for confirmation.

       

    CartoonIn response, a number of militant Islamic and radical Arab organizations protested.

       

    At the mark-up hearing on July 23, 2003, several Democratic senators opposed Mr. Pipes's nomination. They spoke so long that there was no longer a quorom in the room when a vote was to be taken.

       

    Eager to have a full board at the USIP, President Bush recess appointed Mr. Pipes on August 22, 2003. Effective immediately, he serves on the board, where he will remain until January 2005.

    Remember I said 100,000 is the going rate Hizbollah pays for Jew Killing? Here's more PROOF

    I will ask until I am dead...............when is this moral inversion going to stop? When is it going to be ok to stop killing jews? People wake up, wha are we waiting for 9/12?
    Hezbollah paid up to $100,000 for attack

  • Palestinians finger Lebanese terror group in Tel Aviv bombing
  • TEL AVIV – The suicide bombing here Friday night that killed four Israelis and wounded over 50 was funded and directed by Hezbollah forces, which may have paid up to $100,000 for the attack, security sources told WorldNetDaily.
    The three main terror groups – Hamas, Islamic Jihad and the Al Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades – denied involvement much the way Moe Larry and Curly denied hooliganizing.

    I first Posted this on the 2/16

    While the UN goes about it daily business of rape, robbery and pillaging, the bloodlibel reward for murder goes unnoticed. And if that werent enough, even the French refuse to classify Hizbullah as a terrorist organiztion. Ellsworth Toohey, your legacy is very much alive

    And who is giving Hizbullah all this dough?

     Hizbullah Lifts Pay for Suicide Attacks to $100,000

    Defense/Security

    The Lebanon-based Hizbullah terror organization has announced that it is raising the compensation it pays out to families of suicide attackers from $20,000 to $100,000. 
    Bank transfers and e-mail intercepted from the organization by they PA reveal this new development, reports Arutz-7's Haggai Huberman.

    Senior officials of PA armed forces claim that Hizbullah presents the number one threat to the ceasefire currently in effect. The Lebanese group is attempting to enlist terrorists from the Fatah organization, the main governing party in the PA, and from Fatah offshoots such as the Al Aksa Brigades. The latter is closely aligned with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, and is responsible for the murder of hundreds of Jews since the outbreak of the Oslo War in September 2000.

    Israeli officials, too, report that there are currently some 50 Hizbullah-sponsored terrorist cells throughout Judea and Samaria.

    More Thuggery, Threats and Assasinations. Ah yes this is PEACE

     
    ah yes it all comes flooding back...........I remember it well. Dragging these poor souls into the street and blowing their brains out for suspected collaboration with the Israelis.       Shot dead in cold blood for all the world to see and Abbas says CONTINUE!. Oh, and if that weren't enough they are threatening more terrorism.      I love our new friends dont you? I cant wait to hear from my lefty pals telling me how "negative I am. All we are saying is give Peace a chance!" Kumbaya my lord!  Abu Mazen Orders Execution of Arabs Accused of Helping Israel Inside  Israel
       
    In one of his first policy decisions as head of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen) has approved death sentences for three Arab men accused of helping Israel.

    Gaza governor Sakher Bseso announced earlier this week that Abu Mazen had transferred several cases of people sentenced to death under Yasser Arafat’s regime to the mufti (arbiter of Islamic law) of Jerusalem, Sheikh Ikrima Sabri. Abu Mazen then signed the decisions, authorizing PA executioners to carry out the death sentences.

    Shurat HaDin – The Israel Law Center condemned the decision, and though the identity of the three men was not released, speculated that the condemned men were most probably Yusef Hassan Sinwar, Muhammad Abu Kainas and his son, Rami Kainas.

    Sinwar, 31, was sentenced to hanging by a PA military tribunal in October 2004, after an hour long "trial." He was convicted of assisting the IDF in capturing fugitive terrorists.

    Abu Kainas and his son were similarly convicted in a Gaza military court of charges that they tipped off the IDF to the whereabouts of Hamas chief Abdel-Aziz Rantisi in June 2003, even though it lead to a failed assassination attempt, and that they also gave away the location of Ra'fat Za'anin, a Hamas leader the IDF successfully killed in 2003. The father and son were displayed to journalists in September 2004 at a police station in Gaza operated by Mohammed Dahlan's PA forces.

    Another PA prisoner, Walid Hamdiya, has been on death row since 1995. In October 2002, he was sentenced to death by firing squad. Hamdiya's sentence, however, has not yet been carried out. Several other accused Israeli agents being held in PA prisons are facing capital charges although they have not been "convicted" as of yet.

     
          
               
    • PA Official Threatens More Terrorism
    •       

    Defense/Security
       
    The Palestinian Authority's strongman in Gaza, Mohammed Dahlan, threatened today that attacks from the PA will continue if Israel does not withdraw from the strategic Philadelphi Route.

    While noting in an interview with Israel Radio that PA president Mahmoud Abbas is committed to maintaining security while the planned Israeli withdrawal from Gush Katif proceeds, Dahlan warned that Israeli failure to withdraw from the border area with Egypt would turn the Philadelphi Route into another "Shab'a Farms", referring to an area along the Israeli border with Lebanon that Hizbullah terrorists demand Israel evacuate. The Shab'a Farms, or Mount Dov area, has been a frequent target of attack by Hizbullah forces.

    Zee French reap what zay sow?

    Weasel  Watch Agence France-Presse reports: "The assassination of former  Lebanese prime minister Rafiq Hariri was a deliberate blow to France, whose  president Jacques Chirac was a personal friend and has sponsored UN moves to end  the Syrian occupation, Paris-based commentators said Tuesday."

     

    Oh no! How did the French manage to squander all the world sympathy they had  earned by their courageous defense of Saddam Hussein against big bad bully boy  Bush? We trust there's a lot of soul-searching going on at the Elysée Palace.  How do you say "Why do they hate us?" in French? WSJ OpinionJournal 

    So many things to thank the frogs for......their gifts just keep on giving!


    Love, look at the two of us Allies Resisting as U.S. Pushes Terror Label for Hizballah - Steven R. WeismanThe Bush administration is arguing with European governments over whether they should designate Lebanon-based Hizballah a terrorist organization. In the past two weeks, France has rebuffed appeals by Secretary of State Rice and Israeli Foreign Minister Shalom to list Hizballah as a terrorist organization, which would prevent it from raising money in Europe through charity groups. Israeli and American officials say that Palestinian chairman Abbas has told them that he, too, regards Hizballah as a destructive force, one determined to undermine peace talks by supporting militant groups that attack Israelis. The Netherlands, Italy, and Poland support the Bush administration's view, while Germany and Britain believe the issue is moot unless the French change their minds.

    More TRADITIONAL MUSLIM FAMILY VALUES. Out of Money? SELL YOUR DAUGHTER!

    Sell your  daughter

     

     

    By Haytullah Gaheez http://www.JewishWorldReview.com | JALALABAD,  Afghanistan   —   Zeva's eyes filled with tears as the 10-year-old's father took her by the arm and handed her over to the man from whom he had borrowed 50,000 afghanis, or about $1,000.

     
    MARRIAGE MINDED? Muslim girls are  still victims of institutionalized pedophilia
     

    "I cannot pay you in any other way. Take my daughter," said Gul Miran,  42, a farmer in Nangarhar province. 

    Like many other farmers in Afghanistan, Gul Miran had planned to pay back the loan with the proceeds from his crop of poppies, which would eventually be turned into heroin. But as part of its stepped-up effort to combat the drug trade in the country, the government had ploughed under his fields, and Gul Miran was left with nothing.

    "I accepted the girl in return for my loan," said Haji Naqibullah, who had advanced Gul Miran the money. "We had an agreement. He would (pay me back) regardless of whether his crops were wiped out by the weather or by the government.

    "In a year or 18 months I will marry her off to my youngest son," he said. "He is 19 years old and has been married to his first wife for two years but has not had a child yet."

    Payenda Gul, who grows poppies in the Shinwar district, was forced to give his 17-year-old daughter to a 38-year-old in order to pay his debt.

    "When you have an agreement with an opium dealer, nothing but the opium can be paid but they cannot refuse the daughters. It is a way in which a dealer can find a wife for himself or for a son. The son may be disabled or he may be growing older and not had a wife. It is easy to present him with a pretty girl.'' 

    Payenda Gul holds the government responsible for the situation. "They cannot do anything about the big drug dealers but they come and plough up the small farmers' poppies and this creates the problem,'' he said. A 17-year-old girl from Jalalabad province, who refuses to disclose her name, said her father forced her into an engagement with a blind man. She said her father had taken out a loan of $1,600 but his fields had been ploughed under and he had had no choice but to offer her in return for his debt.

    "I will be serving my blind husband to the end of my life,'' she said. "I am an Afghan girl and have to respect my father's choice even though I disagree with it.''

    What's a Dead Jew worth? Hizbullah pays $100,000

    While the UN goes about it daily business of rape, robbery and pillaging, the bloodlibel reward for murder goes unnoticed. And if that werent enough, even the French refuse to classify Hizbullah as a terrorist organiztion. Ellsworth Toohey, your legacy is very much alive And who is giving Hizbullah all this dough?
     Hizbullah Lifts Pay for Suicide Attacks to $100,000

    Defense/Security

    The Lebanon-based Hizbullah terror organization has announced that it is raising the compensation it pays out to families of suicide attackers from $20,000 to $100,000. 
    Bank transfers and e-mail intercepted from the organization by they PA reveal this new development, reports Arutz-7's Haggai Huberman.

    Senior officials of PA armed forces claim that Hizbullah presents the number one threat to the ceasefire currently in effect. The Lebanese group is attempting to enlist terrorists from the Fatah organization, the main governing party in the PA, and from Fatah offshoots such as the Al Aksa Brigades. The latter is closely aligned with PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, and is responsible for the murder of hundreds of Jews since the outbreak of the Oslo War in September 2000.

    Israeli officials, too, report that there are currently some 50 Hizbullah-sponsored terrorist cells throughout Judea and Samaria.

    Moscow is preparing its first major defense contract with Saudi Arabia, the
    world's largest arms buyer that has traditionally spent its petrodollars on
    U.S.-made weapons. The deal is part of a strategy aimed at diversifying
    Russia's arms buyers away from China and India, Sergei Chemezov, general
    director of state-owned arms exporter Rosoboronexport, told reporters
    Wednesday.

          

    Russia also signed an arms contract with Morocco last month, he said, the
    first since the breakup of the Soviet Union.      

          

    Chemezov refused to give any details, but said that Russia is stepping up       
    negotiations with Middle Eastern countries for jointly developing air       
    defense systems on the basis of the domestically produced S-300, Buk and
    Tor-M1 systems.

    Despite Israeli and American protests, Russia is going ahead with plans to  sell sophisticated SA-18 antiaircraft missiles to Syria, Prime Minister Ariel  Sharon said Tuesday. 

    Sharon, at an annual press conference with the Foreign Press Association,  said he had received a letter Tuesday from Russian President Vladimir Putin,  which he had not had a chance to read yet, informing him of the decision. 

    "We are not pleased with the sales of weapons to Syria, particularly  sophisticated weapons that Russia intends to sell to Syria, weapons that may end  up in the hands of terror organizations," Sharon said.

    ABC News' "20/20" program showed pictures taken from the computer of a French U.N. transport worker. The hard drive reportedly contained thousands of photos of him with hundreds of girls. In one frame, a tear can be seen rolling down the cheek of a victim..

    Denying [Islamist] Terrorism
    by Daniel Pipes
    New York Sun
    February 8, 2005

    Anyone following the investigation into the mid-January slaughter of the Armanious family (husband, wife, two young daughters), Copts living in Jersey City, N.J., knows who the presumptive suspects are: Islamists furious at a Christian Egyptian immigrant who dares engage in Internet polemics against Islam and who attempts to convert Muslims to Christianity.

    The authorities, however, have blinded themselves to the extensive circumstantial evidence, insisting that "no facts at this point" substantiate a religious motive for the murders.

    Somehow, the prosecutor missed that all four members of this quiet family were savagely executed in the ritualistic Islamist way (multiple knife attacks and near-beheading); that Jersey City has a record of Islamist activism and jihadi violence, and that the http://www.paltalk.com/ website carried a threat against Hossam Armanious: "We are going to track you down like a chicken and kill you."

    Law enforcement seems more concerned to avoid an anti-Muslim backlash than to find the culprits.

    This attitude of denial fits an all-too-common pattern. I previously documented a reluctance in nearby New York City to see as terrorism the 1994 Brooklyn Bridge ("road rage" was the FBI's preferred description) and the 1997 Empire State Building shootings ("many, many enemies in his mind," said Rudolph Giuliani). And the July 2002 LAX murders were initially dismissed as "a work dispute" and the October 2002 rampage of the Beltway snipers went unexplained, leaving the press to ascribe it to such factors as a "stormy [family] relationship."

    These instances are part of a yet-larger pattern.

    • The 1990 murder of Rabbi Meir Kahane by the Islamist El Sayyid Nosair was initially ascribed by the police to "a prescription drug for or consistent with depression."

    • The 1999 crash of EgyptAir 990, killing 217 - by a co-pilot not supposed to be near the aircraft's controls at that time who repeated 11 times "I rely on God" as he wrenched the plane down - went unexplained by the National Transportation Safety Board.

    • The 2002 purposeful crash of a small plane into a Tampa high-rise by bin Laden-sympathizer Charles Bishara Bishop went unexplained; the family chimed in by blaming the acne drug Accutane.

    • The 2003 murder and near-decapitation in Houston of an Israeli by a former Saudi friend who had newly become an Islamist found the police unable to discern "any evidence" that the crime had anything to do with religion.

    Nor is this a problem unique to American authorities.

    • The 1993 attack on foreign guests dining at the Semiramis Hotel in Cairo, killing five, accompanied by the Islamist cry "Allahu Akbar," inspired the Egyptian government to dismiss the killer as insane.

    • The 2000 attack on a bus of visibly Jewish schoolchildren near Paris by a hammer-wielding North African yelling "You're not in Tel-Aviv!" prompted police to describe the assault as the result of a traffic incident.

    • The 2003 fire that gutted the Merkaz HaTorah Jewish secondary school in a Paris suburb, requiring 100 firefighters to douse the flames, was described by the French minister of the interior as being merely of "criminal origin."

    • The 2004 murder of a Hasidic Jew with no criminal record as he walked an Antwerp street near a predominantly Muslim area left the Belgian authorities stumped: "There are no signs that racism was involved."

    I have cited 13 cases here and provide information on further incidents on my weblog. Why this repeated unease acknowledging Islamist terrorism by the authorities, why the shameful denial?

    And for that matter, why a similar unwillingness to face facts about right-wing extremists, as in the 2002 murder by a cursing skinhead of a Hasidic Jew outside a kosher pizzeria in Toronto, which the police did not find to rate as a hate crime? Because terrorism has much greater implications than prescription drugs going awry, road rage, lunatics acting berserk, or freak industrial accidents. Those can be shrugged off. Islamist terrorism, in contrast, requires an analysis of jihadi motives and a focus on Muslims, steps highly unwelcome to authorities.

    And so, police, prosecutors, and politicians shy away from stark realities in favor of soothing and inaccurate bromides. This ostrich-like behavior carries heavy costs; those who refuse to recognize the enemy cannot defeat him. To pretend terrorism is not occurring nearly guarantees that it will recur.

    Terrorism-Related Charges Filed Against Civil Rights Lawyer

    Date Posted: Thursday, November 20, 2003  


          
    Prominent New York civil rights attorney Lynne Stewart has been indicted on terrorism-related charges again after a failed government prosecution attempt in July.
       

    NEW YORK

    , Nov 20 (MASNET & News Agencies) - The U.S. government filed fresh charges against a

    New York

    civil rights lawyer accused of providing assistance to imprisoned Egyptian cleric Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman.

     

    The charges against Lynne Stewart and two alleged co-conspirators, postal worker Ahmed Sattar and translator Mohammed Yousry, were announced in

    Washington

    by Attorney General John Ashcroft, reports Agence France-Presse (AFP).

     

    The new indictment comes after a federal judge in July dismissed charges that the three defendants had conspired to provide material support to Abdel Rahman's Islamic Group - designated a terrorist organization by the U.S. State Department.

     

    Judge John Koetl had ruled that the original charges, brought in April 2002, were "unconstitutionally vague" based on the mere use of telephones and other devices to help the sheik communicate with his followers.

     

    The charges contained in the new indictment again attempt to link her to a terrorism conspiracy, accusing her of defrauding the government by violating special communications restrictions placed on Abdel-Rahman, called Special Administrative Measures, or SAMs, reports Reuters news agency.

     

    She is also accused of making false statements to the government by signing an agreement saying she would abide by the SAMs.

     

    "The government's decision to bring additional charges ... reflects the seriousness of the conduct allegedly engaged in by the defendants," Ashcroft said.

     

    The new charges include a count against Sattar for his alleged participation in a conspiracy to kill and kidnap persons in a foreign country.

     

    They also accuse Stewart and Yousry of providing and concealing material support to terrorist activity, by making the imprisoned Abdel Rahman "available as personnel" to carry out the conspiracy.

     

    Stewart and Yousry did this by, among other things, passing messages between Abdel Rahman and his co-conspirators, including Sattar, prosecutors said.

     

    One of the charges states that during a May 2000 prison visit to Abdel-Rahman, Yousry read communications to the cleric from his followers while Stewart actively concealed that fact from the prison guards, reports Reuters.

     

    The indictment also alleges that in October 2000 Sattar and others wrote and published on the Internet a fatwa, or religious decree, under Abdel-Rahman's name, calling for Muslims to fight and kill Jews "wherever they are."

     

    All three have pleaded innocent to the original charges. They must return to court Friday to hear the new charges, and their trial, which had been scheduled to begin in about two months, probably will be delayed, reports the Associated Press (AP).

     

    Abdel-Rahman's communications are limited to restricted access to mail, the media, the telephone and visitors.

     

    Abdel Rahman is serving a life term in a

    Minnesota

    federal prison after his October 1995 conviction for conspiring to blow up the

    World

     

    Trade

     

    Center

    and assassinate Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak.

     

    Stewart is a familiar figure in New York-area courts, frequently representing poor and minority clients. Her case is drawing much attention from defense lawyers across the country who fear it is an attempt by the government to scare them away from representing unpopular clients, reports Reuters.

     

    Stewart, who is free on bail, reasserted her innocence Wednesday and said the new charges were part of a "vindictive" effort by the government to skirt the judge's decision in July, reports AP.

     

    "They're trying to come through the back door with some new theory which is difficult even for lawyers to understand," she told the news agency. "I'm going to keep on fighting, and I know my co-defendants are too."

     

    She is scheduled to go on trial early next year.

    Ding Ding the witch is dead!

    Lynne Stewart, a far-left "civil rights" lawyer, has been convicted of aiding terrorism. "In a startlingly sweeping verdict, Ms. Stewart was convicted on all five counts of providing material aid to terrorism and of lying to the government when she pledged to obey federal rules that barred her client, Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, from communicating with his followers," the New York Times reports, adding that Stewart "called the trial a government assault on the practice of law":

      

     

    "I see myself as being a symbol of what people rail against when they say our civil liberties are eroded," she said to a small cluster of her supporters outside the federal district courthouse. "I hope this will be a wake-up call to all the citizens of this country, that you can't lock up the lawyers, you can't tell the lawyers how to do their jobs."

     

    Persuading normal Americans that lawyers are above the law would seem to be a hard sell in itself, but especially so when a lawyer is citing that privilege in aiding America-hating terrorists. Another Times  piece notes some of the specifics of Stewart's crimes:

     

     

    During the trial, prosecutors presented evidence showing that Ms. Stewart had called a reporter in Cairo to say that Mr. Abdel Rahman was withdrawing his support for a cease-fire his followers there had adopted.

     

    The prosecution also showed videotapes of Ms. Stewart saying "good for them" when her client was told in her presence that a militant group in the Philippines had taken hostages. Recordings showed that she seemed to enjoy trying to distract prison guards so they would not know when her translator was giving Mr. Abdel Rahman messages about his followers and their plans.

     

    After one such incident, according to a prosecution transcript, she said of her performance for the guards, "I can get an Academy Award for it."

     

    In October 2003 blogger Scott Johnson appeared on a panel with Stewart at a convention of the National Lawyers Guild, a longtime communist front. Johnson was representing the opposing point of view, as a proponent of the Patriot Act. In a contemporaneous post, he observed:


    The Guild's PATRIOT Act panel demonstrated how the Guild has moved seamlessly from defending America's Communist enemies to defending America's Islamofascist enemies. The common denominator between the Communist Manifesto and Shari'a law is not apparent in theory; only in practice does raw hatred of the United States unmistakbly reveal itself as the glue that joins the Guild and these two causes.

    The extreme left does seem to have abandoned any idea of creating a socialist utopia; today it is devoted solely to uncreative destruction.

    The Shock! The Horror!! Released Terrorists Return to Terror

    Unthinkable I know, but its true half of Released terrorists return to terror. Why this is still a negotiating tool I do not hazard to guess. I use to imagine that the Israelis would microchip the terrorists much the way I microchipped my King Charles Cavalier, Dagny, to track them before they got the next one off. But no such luck, having investigated this to small extent it seems they are not GPS - awwwwwww sh*t!

    Half of Released Terrorists Return to Terror 14:35 Feb 11, '05 / 2 Adar 5765

    With a ministerial committee set to decide Sunday which Palestinian terrorists to free as a gesture to Abu Mazen, a new study shows that half of released Arab terrorists return to their evil ways.
    A booklet published by journalist Boaz HaEtzni and others includes warnings and protests by public and military figures who say that releasing prisoners is dangerous from several standpoints: * It places the lives of Israel's citizens in certain danger* It harms the IDF's deterrence effect* It strengthens both the motivation and capabilities of the terror organizations* It weakens Israel's moral stance against terrorists and those who shelter them."From 1985 until now," the booklet states, "Israel has released thousands of Palestinian terrorists in various prisoner exchanges. Not one of them underwent a test to determine if he will continue to endanger us or not." "We have gathered some of the results of past prisoner releases," HaEtzni explained, "and we show that waves of terrorism have been ignited as a result. According to authorized data, some 50% of the released terrorists returned to terrorism after their release.""Our purpose in publicizing this report," he says, "is to warn those who release terrorists that every other terrorist to be released is expected to endanger us again!""Those who must make this decision," the booklet states, "should be aware that the eyes of women, children, babies, elderly, new immigrants and IDF soldiers who were murdered by terrorists released by Israel will be upon you. If the government hadn't decided to release them, and if the President had not signed their pardon, and if the Supreme Court had not refrained from preventing the release, these people would have been with us today."Though the public and ministerial debate is focused on the question of whether to release murderers or not, many relatives of terror victims say no terrorists at all should be released. Aryeh Bachrach, whose 18-year-old son Ohad was murdered by Arab terrorists almost a decade ago, says there is no difference between terrorists who have murdered and those who did not succeed in their goal. "Our organization [Almagor] has lists of terrorists released without 'blood on their hands'," Bachrach said, "whose hands became full of blood afterwards. If they have no blood on their hands, it means they didn't succeed the first time, and they'll simply try again." The ministerial committee comprises Ministers Sharon, Mofaz, Peres, Olmert, Netanyahu, Ramon, Livny, and Ezra.

    Ahms for the Arab Rich, Ahms for Murdering Thugs! ARGH!

    Time to hurl, safeguard your keyboards......... "Deadbeat Arabs"? You mean they are not gorging us enough on their oil exports.?? Believe me, the last thing the Arabs want is the Palios out of those refugee camps. It has been their MOST EFFECTIVE WEAPON against Israel. ULULULULUL

    Lantos,
    Kissinger Link U.S. Aid to PA with Contributions from Arab "Deadbeats"
    -
    Barry Schweid  Rep. Tom Lantos, the senior Democrat on the House
    International Relations Committee, said Thursday he would condition U.S. aid to
    the Palestinians on oil-rich Arab "deadbeats" making good on their own promised
    contributions. The assertion drew swift endorsement from former Secretary of
    State Henry Kissinger, who said, "I think it is reasonable
    that the surrounding Arab states that have resources should at least match U.S.
    support
    .''    Lantos said he would urge Congress to insist that
    the PA fight terrorism and that Kuwait, Qatar, the United Arab Emirates, and
    other Arab oil states, which he said reaped $40 billion in windfall profits last
    year, make good on their pledges of $400 million in aid.    Lantos
    also said the new Palestinian leader, Mahmoud Abbas, "will
    have to show backbone''
    by dismantling terror groups. "He will either
    defeat them, or they will defeat him,'' Lantos said. Kissinger added, "there can
    be no solution without a tremendous change in attitude, particularly
    propaganda,'' in Arab countries in the region. (AP/Guardian-UK)

    Kill a Jew Go to Heaven


    NATAN SHARANSKY's timing was perfect. On January 25, Sharansky, the ex-Soviet dissident and current Israeli cabinet member, presented a detailed report on the Palestinian Authority's promotion of anti-Semitism and genocide in its official media. He did so amidst the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz and Israel's National Day Against anti-Semitism.
    A day later, one of the co-authors of the report, Itamar Marcus, explained his findings to foreign diplomats in the Israeli parliament. The disturbing report compiled by the Palestinian Media Watch, titled "Kill a Jew-Go To Heaven," illuminates what Sharansky calls the PA's "culture of hatred." After Marcus delivered his briefing, Sharansky seized on the Auschwitz anniversary in a statement to reporters, declaring that anti-Semitic propaganda poisons Palestinian society as it once did in Nazi Germany.
    Is that an exaggeration? Not after perusing "Kill a Jew-Go to Heaven." The 20-page report outlines the three phases of anti-Semitism found in various PA-run media, including newspapers, radio, crossword puzzles, political cartoons, and school textbooks.
    The first phase depicts Jews as subhuman. "The foundation stage defines Jews and presents them as different from others, possessing inherently evil traits," the report explains. This hatred is even disseminated to children. "Treachery and disloyalty are character traits of the Jews and therefore one should be aware of them," the Palestinian textbook Islamic Education for Ninth Grade says.
    When such content was brought to the PA's attention in 1999, the U.S. government offered to fund the reprinting of that book and others. But the PA refused. The report also contains 20 segments from interviews with various individuals on Palestinian television who compare Jews to animals.
    Jewish traditions are maligned in this phase as well. A PA daily newspaper, while blaming the drug problem in the PA on Israel, ran a cartoon of the Jewish menorah, replacing the seven flames with seven syringes.
    The second phase portrays Jews as a threat to the existence of Palestinians in particular and the Arab world in general. "[The second] phase shows that these traits are not a private Jewish matter, but have ramifications for the entire world," the report reads. ". . . Jews are planning and executing heinous crimes. If unchecked these crimes constitute a mortal danger, not only to all Muslims and Arabs, but to all of humanity."

    The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

    ....You cannot take a cease-fire as a long-range goal while they are still preserving their infrastructure. The extremist organizations can rebuild them and bring about a situation in which, at a time they choose, they can carry out one terrorist attack or a series of terror attacks, which will bring down this whole process and send it to hell."

(Reuters) The Middle East's Dance of Death - Melanie PhillipsWhat the world finds so hard to acknowledge is that the source of this terrible conflict is not Israel's behavior. It is not the settlements, the roadblocks, the prisoners. It is not, despite the near-universal assumption, the absence of a Palestinian state. The source is the Arab world-backed Palestinian terror war against Israel's existence. The onus is on Abbas to end that war by dismantling the entire infrastructure of Palestinian terror, and to give his own community an identity other than the impulse to destroy another people. But the signs are not auspicious. What looks rather more likely is that Abbas is instead a world-class tactician, who will be able to pose with ostensibly clean hands disclaiming the murderous terrorism that Hamas will continue to inflict upon Israel, thus forcing Israel to react and casting it even more decisively as the regional bully. If this is so, then Israel is in even more danger now than it was in before. (melaniephillips.com)

    Worked CAMERA'S First Event DANIEL PIPES

    Helped set up the first event for CAMERA, a lunch for Daniel Pipes earlier today on 59th Street, We spoke long and hard..........talked alot of LGF and Charles and the blogosphere and saving the world and how it would not be possible without the blogosphere and the righteous amoung us.Pipes is pessimistic about the future for Israel. Dire about Israel's mid term prospects if an Abbas emerges and can appear to be able to govern it will be bad for Israel becuase once again she'll have to give up precious concessions and we saw what Oslo wrought and if no leader emerges, there will be more terrorist killings he thinks the latter is the better (!) what i found most interesting is when leaders ie (king Hussein Jordan, Sadat Egypt) had sought to make a legitimate peace with Israel it was their populations that are most against it. Remember when Hussein paid a shiva call on his knees to the families of the little girls that a Jordanian military guard had killed, that was an UNPRECEDENTED act. when Egypt was Israel's enemy Pipes lived there for 3 years, and there was very little talk of Israel...they had given the government their proxy against Israel but as soon as peace was made, the people took back their proxy and the population became very unhappy with the prospect of peace Alot to think about it............but the bottom line is there can be no negotiations until the war is won. PERIOD.All in all a wildly informative afternoon and we got to chat privately as well which was depressing but magnificent!

    Don't WHITEWASH Arafat's record

    Please  report on Arafat's history objectively. You must include his decades-long involvement in terror, his goal of destroying Israel, and his siphoning of hundreds of millions of dollars from money donated to help the Palestinian people that went instead into his own private accounts. In this era of unspeakable terror, please remind the public of Arafat's blood-soaked history and of his many missed opportunities to bring peace and a better life to the Palestinian people. Key Dates in the life of Yasir Arafat, known to many as the "father of modern terrorism"-- Aug 4, 1929: Arafat born in Cairo.
