Bee sting more dangerous than jihad, says British gvmnt watchdog David Anderson

Well then, I suppose we can all go back to sleep, as there is now nothing to see here.

Uh huh.

From the Telegraph June 28 by Martin Beckford

Bee stings killed as many in UK as terrorists, says watchdog
David Anderson said that no one has even been injured by an Islamist in this country for more than two years, while the number of convictions has dropped to a “handful”.

As a result he suggested that ministers could relax some anti-terror laws without endangering public safety, such as by allowing terror suspects to apply for bail or making it harder to ban certain groups.

Mr Anderson, a barrister who serves as the Independent Reviewer of Terrorism Legislation, also congratulated the Coalition for scrapping tough stop and search powers and halving the maximum detention time for suspects to 14 days.

But he added that the “almost incessant” creation of new legislation since 9/11 has left counter-terrorism laws “bitty, messy” and hard to understand.

His optimistic view of the domestic security situation contrasts with that described by the head of MI5 earlier this week. Jonathan Evans, the Director General of the Security Service, warned that the Arab Spring has spawned a new generation of British terrorists while cyber attacks are damaging companies in the “real world”.

In his annual report, published on Wednesday, Mr Anderson wrote: “Whatever its cause, the reduction of risk in relation to al-Qaida terrorism in the United Kingdom is real and has been sustained for several years now.”

He said the situation has improved “markedly” since the middle of the last decade, when Britain suffered the atrocity of 7/7 as well as the failed 21/7 attacks and the foiled fertiliser bomb and airline liquid bomb plots.

The watchdog said no one has been injured by a terrorist in this country since May 2010 when the Labour MP Stephen Timms was stabbed in his constituency surgery by Roshonara Choudhry, while there was not a single al-Qaida attack in Europe throughout 2011.

Drug addiction the fault of the Jews

Then who is growing all that opium in Afghanistan, processing it into heroin and distributing it across Western lands?  Wait, I know this one.....the Jews?

Sometimes I even amaze myself.

'Zionists to blame for world drug trade'

In blatantly anti-Semitic speech, Iranian Vice PresidentMohammad Reza Rahimi condemned the "Zionists" and the teachings of the Talmud for "inciting global drug trade and addiction in a bid to annihilate non-Jewish communities," Iran's Fars News Agency reported Wednesday.

Rahimi, who spoke during a ceremony marking International Day against Drug Abuse held in Tehran on Tuesday, said that it is, in fact, the Talmud, which is a central text of Judaism, that "teaches (Zionists) how to destroy non-Jews so as to protect an embryo in the womb of a Jewish mother."


The Jews' direct involvement in the global drug trade "is why you cannot find a single addict among the Zionists," he stated."

Rahimi then added that the Talmud teaches Jews to think that "God has created the world so that all other nations can serve them… But there is a difference between Jews who honestly follow the prophet Moses and those (who are) the main elements of the international drugs trade."

"The Islamic Republic of Iran will pay for anybody who can research and find one single Zionist who is an addict," Rahmini said. "They do not exist. This is the proof of their involvement in drugs trade."

Democracy in Egypt; Jews barred from pilgrimage to Rabbi holy site

Of course, this has nothing to do with Islamists taking control of the country.  Must be completely different, like maybe not enough parking spaces for the pilgrim buses....yeah, that's it.

Egypt to Block Jewish Pilgrims From Holy Site

Egypt’s Foreign Ministry said Wednesday it had told Israel that it would not be “appropriate” for Israeli pilgrims to make an annual visit to the tomb of a 19th-century Jewish holy man in the Nile Delta.

Egypt notified Israel two months ago that it would be “impossible to hold the annual ceremony because of the political and security situation in the country,” the official, who spoke oncondition of anonymity, said.

Wednesday's announcement came as Muslim Brotherhood activists mobilized to block the pilgrimage route.

Ceremonies at the tomb of Rabbi Yaakov Abuchatzeira have triggered yearly political sparring in Egypt throughout most of the last decade.

An Islamist politician involved in organizing protests against the march meanwhile said that visiting the gravesite in the village of Daymouta, 180 kilometers (112 miles) north of Cairo would be a “suicide mission” for Israelis.

“Normalization (of relations) with Israel is forced on the people, and the visits too come against the will of the people and despite popular rejection,” said Gamal Heshmat of the Muslim Brotherhood.

Egypt’s daily Al-Ahram newspaper reported Tuesday that 31 parties and groups had joined this year’s campaign to block Israeli pilgrims from reaching the site.

But the real problem is Islamophobia and people like me who point out articles like the one above.

"The sole goal...(is the) the recovery of al Aqsa Mosque, freeing it from the filth of the Zionists, and imposing Muslim rule throughout beloved Palestine."

He said it.  Spoken by Mohamed Badie, the General Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood on June 14 in a speech in Egypt.

Exclusive: Muslim Brotherhood Preaching Israel Destruction After Election

"Every Muslim will be asked about the Zionists' usurpation of al-Aqsa Mosque. Why did he not seek to recover it, and wage Jihad in His way? Did he not care about the fatwa of the ulema [scholars] of the Muslims, 'Jihad of self and money to recover al Aqsa is a duty on every Muslim?'" askedMohamed Badie, General Guide of the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood, in a June 14th speech translated exclusively by the Investigative Project on Terrorism.

The speech from the Brotherhood's Ikhwan Online website is evidence that the group has not moderated its position even an iota, despite assurances to Western audiences.

"How happy would be the Muslims if all Muslim rulers made the Palestinian cause a pivotal issue, around which Muslims, rulers and the ruled, would line up," he stated. According to Badie, they would ally to make "the sole goal for all of them the recovery of al Aqsa Mosque, freeing it from the filth of the Zionists, and imposing Muslim rule throughout beloved Palestine."

"The Lord of Glory has threatened these murdering Zionists criminals with a penalty of a kind which operates in this world before the Hereafter, he said, before referencing a Quranic quote calling Jews "apes, despised."

"We say to our people and our brothers in Palestine (all of Palestine): Unity, unity, persistence, persistence, reconciliation, reconciliation, and patience, patience. Make your motto and your starting point be in confronting the Zionists," he added.

(...)(President-elect) Morsi promised the Quran would be the new constitution of the nation, and then led the crowd in chants of the Muslim Brotherhood's motto. "The Quran is our constitution," "jihad is our path," and "death for the sake of Allah is our most lofty aspiration," the jubilant crowd repeated after Morsi.

"Above all – Allah is our goal... The shari'a, then the shari'a, and finally, the shari'a. This nation will enjoy blessing and revival only through the Islamic shari'a. I take an oath before Allah and before you all that regardless of the actual text [of the constitution]... Allah willing, the text will truly reflect [the shari'a], as will be agreed upon by the Egyptian people, by the Islamic scholars, and by legal and constitutional experts," he added.

That's the same message of violence and religious extremism that the General Guide Badie has been preaching for years.

Throwing good money after bad in Pakistan

With 74% of Pakistanis seeing America as their enemy, why do we continue to send money to them?  What is the benefit for us now, other than to be the whipping boy for Islamic hatred?  We believe that we can buy our friends and that the money we spend is returned in the form of kind words and honorable dealings.  If we just give a little bit more, the problems will peter out.

Uh huh.

74% Pakistanis consider United States an enemy country
Three-in-four Pakistanis consider the United States an enemy country, a new survey conducted by the Washington-based Pew Global Attitudes Project indicates.

The Pew survey, which was published on its website on Wednesday, said that last year 69 percent used to hate the US but in 2012 the figure jumped to 74 percent.

The survey also showed an exceptionally low regard for US President Barack Obama among Pakistanis. They believe Obama is as bad a leader as former US President George W. Bush had been during his final year in office.

US-Pakistan relations have been strained over the civilian casualties caused by the non-UN-sanctioned US drone attacks, and over a number of other issues.

Under intense public pressure, Islamabad closed the border crossings used to transfer NATO supplies to US-led forces occupying Afghanistan in November 2011 after 24 Pakistani soldiers were killed in US-led airstrikes on two checkpoints on the Afghan border.

Thousands of Pakistanis have lost their lives in bombings and other militant attacks since the US-led war in Afghanistan began on October 7, 2001. The offensive removed the Taliban from power, but it also unleashed forces of extremism and terrorism in neighboring Pakistan.

In addition, the Pew Global Attitudes Project survey also showed that former cricket star Imran Khan has remained the most popular politician in the country. More than 70 percent of the people offer a favorable opinion of Khan, who leads Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (Movement for Justice or PTI). This is basically unchanged from last year, but up considerably from 2010.

Khan’s stance on US war on terror, which he calls a war of terror, his strong views on CIA’s drone attacks in Pakistan’s northwest tribal region, which the US has been carrying out since 2008, his struggle for the rule of law, justice, equality, and the eradication of corruption, have endeared the PTI leader to the people of Pakistan.

Meanwhile, approval ratings of President Asif Ali Zardari and his Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) have plunged badly. Only 14 percent view Zardari favorably, down drastically from 64 percent in 2008.

Britain: two more misunderstanders of Islam arrested

It seems there are more and more Muslims who, for whatever reason are just not getting the memo.  How this misunderstanding of the religion of peace keeps happening is any ones guess.

From AP June 28 by Raphael Satter and Paisley Dodds


LONDON (AP) — London police have detained two British Muslim converts on suspicion of terror offenses Thursday, a U.K. security official told The Associated Press.

The official, who spoke only on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly, said it wasn't clear whether the arrests were related to the upcoming Olympic Games. Security is tight ahead of the London games, which begin on July 27.

"This doesn't appear to be a big investigation, but it's still early days," he said, downplaying the importance of the arrests.

Scotland Yard identified the men as an 18-year-old and a 32-year-old, but didn't give their names. The force said in a statement the pair was arrested early Thursday at separate addresses in east London.

A man who identified himself as a friend of the detainees identified the 18-year-old as Jamal ud-Din and said the older man was someone he knew only as "Zakariya."

Mizanur Rahman, 29, said the arrests "might have had something to do with the fact that they recently went canoeing" on the River Lee, a branch of which runs through the Olympic site in east London. He said the pair also recently went shooting with an air rifle in Essex, a largely suburban and rural county east of London.

Rahman said he saw nothing amiss with the activities. "It's just people trying to get into the Olympic spirit," he said, adding that he believed authorities would try "painting it as jihad training."

Rahman pointed the AP to what he said was a photograph of ud-Din. The picture showed a stocky, pale-faced man with a bushy red beard and it appeared to match a man who appeared last year in a YouTube video entitled "The Test of Allah by Jamal ud Deen."

The speaker on the video, who Rahman confirmed was ud-Din, expresses contempt for democracy and non-Muslims, admiration for Islamist firebrands including jailed Egyptian preacher Abu Hamza, and anger at the Danish cartoons which infamously caricatured Muhammad — whom Muslims revere as a prophet.

At one point the speaker approvingly quotes someone he refers to only as "the sheikh."

"We're not like the Christians; if you slap us on the left cheek, we'll slap you back," he tells an unseen audience. "This is so true, brother. We're Muslims. We defend ourselves, brother."

Dearbornistan: Muslims attack Christians during Arab festival, police harass Christians and threaten them with arrest and ticketing for causing a scene

Sharia is here, now, today.  If you think we are not slowly becoming the land of Allah, watch the video and see for yourself how the Dearbornistan police protected Muslims and upheld sharia law, while persecuting Christians and then, after running them off make a traffic stop where 12 officers decided to corral the Christians on the street and interrogate them.  Free speech is almost dead in Michigan, Muslims have free reign to do whatever they want with no penalty, and Christians are seen as the bad guys, harassed and persecuted for simply being Christian.  The Muslims in the crowd, including children are seen throwing all kinds of detritus at the departing Christians, including a milk crate and what look like eggs.  Police can be seen ignoring the riotous Muslims and when asked if they could provide two officers to help the Christians the police refused to do so.

My friends, this is a pivotal time in our history.  What you see in the video is not the beginning, but the continuation of Islamic conquest in the United States, which started on Tuesday, September 11, 2001.  In crystal clarity we watch the police enforce sharia law by not holding the Muslims accountable for their actions, and at the same time subjugating Christians by removing their free speech rights and right of assembly.  This is jihad in Dearbornistan, plain and simple, an expression of Muslim superiority and further proof that even as not all Muslims condone this kind of behavior, those that agitate for sharia in the US are not challenged or questioned by their Muslim peers.  What we hear on the video is a local Muslim spokesman saying that the actions of the Christians goes beyond free speech and should be shut down, not that his Muslim brothers have taken their hatred of non-Muslims too far.  No one questions why this is, nor even seems to care it is happening.  Why?

The future of our country, and mankind as a whole is plunging headlong toward the abyss as Islam makes more inroads into the fabric of society.  There is no assimilation, no getting along, no tolerance and bridge-building in Islam, nothing to weave into Western civilization that would create a better and more peaceful world.  The crowd at the festival knows only hatred and intolerance and their children know this hate and intolerance by their parents actions and words.  Are we to stand by and let this kind of child abuse continue, or do we let it happen because Muslims are the "New Blacks" and cannot be seen as anything but a victim?  Our survival depends on being able to identify the black hats from the white hats, but with the attitude of our dear leaders, the media, apologists and pundits we have been sucker-punched into believing that there are no hats, only thousands of shades of grey, for which we should be eternally grateful.  After all, multiculturalism would never have gained a foothold if not for the parsing of societies into those subtle shades of grey.

I weep for Michigan, it will be the first state to be a Muslim state and I fear it will happen within my lifetime.  I weep for our country, as I watch it quicken towards its own demise under the cover of political correctness.  I shudder at the prospect of having to watch a Muslim delegation from Michigan choose a political candidate based in sharia law and what the Qur'an says.  For the first time ever, I truly fear for the future of my country.  I am reminded of the words of Robert Spencer, commenting on how Islam insists on it being above all, "When in a Muslim country you conform to Muslim norms.  In a non-Muslim country, you conform to Muslim norms."  It is in Michigan, it is coming to a city near you soon.

First they came for the Christians...

American Muslims Stone Christians in Dearborn, MI
The Dearborn Saga continues.

There's no questioning the fact that Ruben Israel's group came to the Dearborn Arab Festival to provoke a response from Muslims. But their actions were protected by the U.S. Constitution. The violent response they received from Muslims, however, was illegal. Every bottle, rock, or milk crate thrown was an assault.

I'm no fan of Ruben Israel. Indeed, I'm appalled at some of his group's antics. Yet I can't help but think that the city has brought this on themselves. Why did Ruben Israel come to the festival? Because Dearborn Police started arresting Christians (myself included) for peacefully sharing the Gospel in 2010. Thus, Ruben's message is: "If you're going to start messing with Christians, you're going to have to deal with us."

And so the Dearborn Arab Festival has become a beacon for anyone who wants a confrontation with Muslims. If festival security hadn't started entrapping and assaulting Christians in 2009, and if Dearborn Police hadn't unveiled their strategy of arresting Christians in 2010, I doubt Ruben would have ever set foot in Dearborn.

The city is upset by all the attention they're getting. Perhaps it's time for the city to think about the sources of all the negative publicity: The American Arab Chamber of Commerce, the Dearborn Police Department, Chief Ronald Haddad, Prosecutor William Debiasi, Judge Mark Somers, and Mayor John O'Reilly. I have no doubt that if the City of Dearborn were to finally start taking responsibility for their misdeeds (instead of constantly portraying the city as the victim), the spiral they're caught in would eventually turn around.

Is Obama a Muslim?

No he is not, but he acts like one.  If you think Obama has put Muslims and the Islamic world ahead of American interests, you are right.  I have published this article before and all of you probably know my feelings on this, but it bears repeating every so often so we don't forget just who Obama is working for.

From the American Thinker Feb 21, 2010 by Pamela Geller
Report: Obama said 'I Am a Muslim'

"The American President told me in confidence that he is a Muslim."

That was the claim of Egyptian Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit, as reported in the May 2010 issue of Israel Today. According to journalist Avi Lipkin, Gheit appeared on Nile TV's "Round Table Show" in January, on which he said that "he had had a one-on-one meeting with Obama who swore to him that he was a Moslem, the son of a Moslem father and step-son of Moslem step-father, that his half-brothers in Kenya were Moslems, and that he was loyal to the Moslem agenda."

Obama allegedly said this in the context of reassuring Gheit that he would soon deal with Israel:

He asked that the Moslem world show patience. Obama promised that once he overcame some domestic American problems (Healthcare) [sic], that he would show the Moslem world what he would do with Israel.

Could this be true? Even if Gheit's claim isn't true, or was misreported, every country in the free world must be cognizant of the catastrophic sea change that has taken place in the leadership of the free world -- as witnessed by events over the past year. Barack Obama took an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, and yet whether he is a Muslim or not, he has undeniably gone around the world promoting Islam and Sharia (Islamic law).

And now, if what Gheit says is true, we know why.

The alleged exchange between Obama and Gheit would almost certainly have happened in early January 2010, when Gheit was in Washington, D.C. regarding "Mideast peace talks."

On Thursday, January 7, 2010, the Associated Press reported that "Clinton and Mitchell [were] scheduled to meet" with Gheit on Friday, January 8, 2010: see ABC news here.

On Friday, January 8, 2010, Hillary Clinton and Gheit spoke with each other. The U.S. Department of State has provided video before the meeting: see the Department of State here.

On Saturday, January 9, 2010, NPR spoke with Gheit about his visit: see

This is a devastating claim, and yet no media outlet is covering it. Remember, during Obama's campaign, I and others were excoriated for using his middle name. We were accused of implying he was a crypto-Muslim. We could not discuss his background, his Islamic schooling, his ties to Islam. However, I have meticulously documented his Muslim background in my soon-to-be-released book,The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America.

It became all too clear after his election how proud Obama was of his Muslim name, background, and family. He made this plain when he gave his very first interview to Muslim media and boasted of these things. He suddenly became proud of the very things that were verboten to speak of during the campaign. That was the level of deceit and obfuscation.

If Gheit's reported claim is true, then Obama is a baldfaced liar. But why? Why lie if you have nothing to hide?

(...)Let's review Obama's track record:

March 2009: Obama declares the "war on terror" is over, despite a dramatic increase in jihad war ops.

I disagree. I think Islam is safe and thriving in the lives of Muslims around the world. What the terrorists have been allowed to take over are Muslim grievances."
April 2009: Obama lays groundwork for a partnership with Hamas.
May 2009: Obama promises to offer his "personal commitment" to Muslims.

More Malian Madness

As sharia takes hold we will see more of this kind of imposition regarding how people are treated.  Students are fearful that Islam is taking over, and are willing to leave school and try to find another place to learn.  Poverty does not breed jihad, jihad breeds poverty.

Mali: Students Flee Sharia in Northern Schools

Bamako — Strict Sharia, or Islamic religious laws, imposed by the Islamist rebels controlling vast swathes of northern Mali are driving thousands of students out of schools. Dress codes have been imposed, boys and girls are forced to learn separately, and subjects deemed to promote "infidelity" have been struck off the curriculum.

Outraged parents are transferring their children and some students are opting to miss examinations rather than learn under these conditions.

"We simply took our two children from the school," said Mariam Touré, who lives in Timbuktu, one of the northern towns seized by the Islamists and other insurgents. "We will send them to Bamako [the capital of Mali, in the south] to continue learning."

"I decided not to sit my second-term examinations under those conditions and my parents agreed with me. They transferred me to Sikasso [a town southeast of Bamako], where I'm now pursuing my studies," said Almoustapha Cissé.

Boubacar Sissoko, a schoolmaster in Timbuktu - a UNESCO World Heritage site - said the Islamists "terrorize the children" with the new laws. "They have introduced their own programme and new subjects like Islamic education, or collective prayers that they themselves conduct," he said. The arrival of the Islamists in the north in March and the unrest that followed have left only 107 students out of 429 at the school.

Mali's education ministry estimates that around 5,000 students have fled to schools in Bamako and other southern towns since Islamist fighters of Ansar Dine, an Islamist group that wants to apply Sharia law throughout Mali; the Movement for Unity and Jihad in West Africa (MUJAO), a small Islamist group; and the Azawad National Liberation Movement (MNLA), who want to create a separate secular state in the north, seized northern Mali when a military coup on 22 March ousted president Amadou Amani Touré in Bamako.

The combination of conflict, harsh drought, food insecurity, and now the imposition of Sharia law, has internally displaced 146,900 people, and more than 150,000 others to neighbouring Mauritania, Burkina Faso, Niger and Guinea, according to the UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

Although schools have taken the brunt of the draconian Islamic laws, residents can also no longer watch television, men cannot shave their beard or use tobacco. On 20 June, a Timbuktu couple was flogged 100 times in public for having a child out of wedlock, sparking condemnation by shocked and angry residents.

"I was really shocked to see these poor youths undergo such punishment simply because of having a child. It made me cry. It's a shame," said Mariama, a schoolgirl.

"We are living in another world," said Attaher Maiga, a Timbuktu resident, pointing out that the Koran does not forbid football, tobacco or shaving one's beard.

But the Islamists defend their laws.

"Sharia has to be applied whether the people like it or not, we will enforce it. We are not asking anybody's opinion. We are not democrats. We are servants of Allah who demands Sharia," Sanda Ould Boumama, Ansar Dine's spokesman in Timbuktu, told IRIN.

But...sharia is completely compatible with Western values and the constitution, isn't it?

Girls are forced to wear djellabas, or full-body robes. "On 7 May, Ansar Dine and its ally, Al Qaeda in Maghreb, reopened schools in Timbuktu and Gao, a town to the east, but students began a new system [of learning] unknown to them before the occupation of the region," Timbuktu Education Director, Abou Bacri Cissé, told IRIN.

"Not only did they impose a new education system, separating girls and boys in classrooms, they also separate the students in groups - boys learning in the morning, and girls in the afternoon," he said.

In classrooms in Gao, "Boys sit in front and girls at the back, like in mosques," Beydi Koné, a journalist in the town, told IRIN.

Amahane Touré, a teacher in Gao, said only 21 pupils remain in her eighth and ninth grade French class, among them three girls. Previously there were 69 pupils, including 19 girls.

"We are searched every day before going to classes for fear that we are teaching the subjects banned under their Sharia. They forbid us from teaching certain subjects like biology, philosophy, civic education, under the pretext that they promote infidelity," she said.

Sounds like they took lessons from the TSA...or maybe it's the other way round....

"I understand the plight of the parents who fled with their children, but as teachers we have the duty to teach those who remain, even if the conditions are tough, especially due to Sharia imposed by Ansar Dine," Touré said.

Good luck with that, let us know how long it lasted.

Tennessee: Murfreesboro mosque money; where does it come from?

The serpent is exposed as having more than one tongue.  There are many dangerous implications in this article, the not the least of which is the connection between the owner of the mosque property, the NAIT (North American Islamic Trust) and the MAS (Muslim American Society.)  All part of the Muslim Brotherhood in America, these and other Muslim groups have at their core only one design; the take-over of the U.S. by stealth jihad and creeping sharia.  They are succeeding...slowly but securely and they know by using our own laws and ethics against us, they can and will succeed over time.  This is not a quick and decisive battle, this is a long war and the enemy has the long vision.  1,400 years and counting, what's another 25, 50 or 100 years if it means the end result is the entire earth worshipping Allah.

Not me, not now, not ever.

From Global Infidel TV June 22 by Eric Allen Bell


Why is it such a big deal that a Muslim community is simply trying to build a house of worship?

Let’s start with a little math. Murfreesboro, TN is located in Rutherford County which has just over 100,000 residents. According to estimates provided by the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, there are 200 to 300 Muslim families living in the area. When they announced their plans to build a 53,000 square foot mega mosque, a lot of questions came up. One subject of concern was why they needed such a huge compound for so few families. What is particularly disconcerting is that, according to their own documents (attached 2009 annual report) the ICM only has 45 active paying member families. Naturally this begs another question – who is paying for this massive compound?

And, what will it really cost to build something that looks like this, per square foot, at 53,000 square feet, when the project is completed? How many millions of dollars will these “45 active members” be coming up with – and where is all this money coming from?

Why is it that after 9/11, mosque construction in America has nearly doubled?

It’s not as if the population of Muslims in America suddenly spiked – not even close. Muslims make up less than 1 percent of the United States population. So is there any logical explanation for the rapid expansion of new mosque construction?

One need only look to the history of 1,400 years of Islamic conquest to understand that according to the Hijra, the Islamic doctrine of cultural invasion, Muslims are required to build mosques following a successful attack.

But shouldn’t the Islamic Center of Mufreesboro have the right to build anyway? Is this not a right, given to all religions and protected under the First Amendment?

In order to understand what Islam is and is not, it is important to note a few basic facts. Well under 20 percent of Islamic scripture talks about religion in any way. The rest concerns itself with fighting the infidel, conquest, spreading the tyrannical Islamic political system and enforcing brutal Islamic Law (Sharia) on the non-believers.

Another glaring detail that our last few Presidents left out, when telling us that “Islam is peace” is that Islam is sort of obsessed with hating the Jews. In fact, the Prophet Mohammed had an entire Jewish tribe murdered. Here is a bit of Islamic scripture that I find to be very revealing, when it comes to “the religion of peace”:

“The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him.” (Sahih Muslim, 41:6985; see also 41:6981-84 and Sahih Bukhari, 4:52:176,177 and 4:56:791)

So actually, Islam is a political and legal system with a thin veil of religious doctrine, thus giving it just enough cover to be protected by our laws, provided no one shine the light of truth and thus exposes to Americans what Islam actually is.

And the glaring fact that the Islamic scripture is a hate manifesto with a blueprint for worldwide domination of the infidel, well, who wants to confront the elephant in the room and be labeled “intolerant”? That said, until someone successfully challenges this in court, Islam has been deemed a religion in the United States, and when that premise is questioned in a court of law, Eric Holder sends officials from the Department of Justice to intervene on behalf of Islam.

However, when applying a little common sense, one can look at Islam’s place in America in the following way: “Islam” means submission. “Liberty” means you own you. Liberty is one of the major founding principles upon which America stands. Liberty and submission cannot coexist. Therefore, Liberty and Islam cannot coexist. Islam runs counter to our American values.

But the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro says it’s just a place of worship, right?

According to a passage on the ICM website from 2008, since scrubbed from the web, but preserved in the attached documents, here is what the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro website used to say about an objective of their presence, in Tennessee (before they scrubbed this from the web):

“The main focus is to insure the masjid (mosque) stronghold on our community and to expand beyond religious teachings… We must work hard so that the ICM have a prominent role in the development and progression of not only Mufreesboro, but of Middle Tennessee.”

I’m sure the mosque has a perfectly reasonable explanation for this. I guess it’s really up to you to decide for yourself, whether they mean “expand beyond religious teachings” when they explicitly say “expand beyond religious teachings”.

Praise for Mohammed on Synagogue Walls
Residents of the small agriculturalcommunity of Maor, east of Hadera, went to their synagogue Thursday for afternoon prayers and were appalled to find that it had been vandalized.

The vandals sprayed the walls of the building with the words of Muslim prayers, written in Arabic, and with praise for Mohammed, who Muslims believe was a prophet.

Police are investigating the incident.

Last month vandals desecrated the ancient synagogue in Naaran, next to Jericho. Jews who visited the site found swastikas and slogans in favor of “Palestine". The synagogue’s unique ancient musaic floor had been damaged.

MK Uri Ariel of the State Control Committee said the Jericho incident “proves that the only ones who are able to, and want to, defend Jewish holy sites are our security forces.” Ariel said he has asked officials to repair the damages immediately, and has asked Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to restore the area to Israeli control.

MK Michael Ben-Ari called on police to “treat the damage to a synagogue as if it had been a mosque.”

Interesting statement Ben-Ari makes, implying that he knows that Muslims demand, and get special treatment when it comes to their religious feelings.  He is right, but to say so would be Islamophobic.  

Syria: Christians victims of genocide by Islam, helped by the Obama administration

In a misguided belief that we are helping the spread of democracy in Syria, Western powers, the US chief among them, are arming the Free Syrian Army in order to hasten the demise of the Assad regime.  With this support comes the added benefit of being able to persecute non-Muslims with modern weapons and updated logistics, as seen by the now ongoing genocide of Christians by the Free Syrian Army.

Thanks Obama!  You sure know how to pick 'em!

US-Backed Rebels Committing Christian Genocide in Syria

DAMASCUS, SYRIA (Worthy News)– Christians are being targeted by Muslim rebels according to the Vatican and other sources amongst besieged Syrian Christian communities.

According to reports by the Vatican's Fides News Agency, the US-backed Syrian Army are sacking churches and issuing threats that all Christians will be cleansed from rebel-held territory.

"The picture for us is utter desolation," said Bishop Philip Tournyol Clos, a greek-Catholic Melkite Archimandrite. "The church of Mar Elian is half destroyed and that of Our Lady of Peace is still occupied by the rebels. Christian homes are severely damaged due to the fighting and completely emptied of their inhabitants, who fled without taking anything."

Asked whether it was the Free Syrian Army that was telling Christians to get out, Agnes Miriam, Mother Superior of the Monastery of St. James at Qara in the Diocese of Homs, said "yes … it was commander on the ground, Abdel Salam Harba, who decided that there was to be no more negotiations with Christians."

She said Christians refused to back the rebels, so the rebels used them as human shields.

Lovely, this religion of peace.

Christian extremists in Iraq murder 13 and injure 100 at Baghdad market...wait, what?

Bombs targeting Shi'ites kill 13, wound 100 in Baghdad

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - At least 13 people were killed and more than 100 wounded on Friday when two roadside bombs exploded in quick succession in a crowded Baghdad market, Iraqi police and hospital sources said, in the latest attack targeting Shi'ite Muslims this month.

A wave of bombings in June against mainly Shi'ite pilgrims and shrines has killed more than 130 people and fuelled fears that Iraq could slip back into sectarian bloodletting of the kind that has receded since its peak in 2006-07.

Tensions have run high after U.S. troops left in December as Shi'ite, Sunni and Kurdish political factions vie for power.

The first explosion struck Husseiniya, a market in a mainly Shi'ite area on the outskirts of the Iraqi capital, where people were shopping for groceries and other goods, sources said.

The second blast followed soon afterwards as security forces and civilians gathered to tend to the casualties from the first.

Typical Islamic tactic; wait until people gather to help then set off the next explosion.  Guaranteed mass casualties, courtesy the religion of peace.

Misunderstander of Islam goes on trial, accused of plotting to wage jihad in the US

Saudi man accused in US bomb plot set for trial

LUBBOCK, Texas – Twice in the days leading up to Khalid Ali-M Aldawsari's arrest federal agents secretly searched the Saudi man's West Texas apartment, where they say they found bomb-making chemicals as well as beakers, flasks, wiring, a hazmat suit and clocks.

They also discovered Aldawsari's journal, handwritten in Arabic, in which he wrote that he had been planning a terror attack in the U.S. for years and that it was "time for jihad," or holy war, court documents show.

Aldawsari wrote that he was planning an attack in the U.S. for years, even before coming to America on a scholarship. He bemoaned the plight of Muslims and said he was influenced by Osama bin Laden's speeches.

Jury selection in the 22-year-old's trial was set to begin Thursday in Amarillo. If convicted, Aldawsari faces up to life in prison.

The results of the two searches at Aldawsari's apartment in Lubbock in February 2011 led authorities to suspect he had nearly everything he needed to build a bomb, having purchased chemicals and other materials online in previous months. He had also researched targets — including dams, nuclear plants or the Dallas home of former President George W. Bush — and how to place bomb material inside dolls and baby carriages, court records show.

Authorities arrested the former Texas Tech University chemical engineering student on Feb. 23, 2011, and charged him with attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. He has pleaded not guilty, and attorneys plan to use an insanity defense, court records show.

Oh no, the dreaded insanity defense!  Not enough hugs as a child...bad relationship with a girl...lost his job to the man...road rage...forced accordion lessons...what will it be this time?

Mali: teen mother and boyfriend lashed 100 times for "fornication"

As per sharia law, if you have sex outside of marriage you have sinned against Muhammad and Allah and will be punished, if you have a child out of wedlock the penalty could be death by stoning.  As long as sharia reigns supreme there will be more of this kind of barbarism.  But remember, sharia is completely compatible with Western concepts of liberty and freedom and we shouldn't resist it's implementation.  OK, nothing else to see here...move along now...

Teenager lashed 100 times in Timbuktu for having child out of wedlock

The sentence was carried out on the orders of Ansar Dine, a militant Muslim organisation that has seized territory in the desert north of the West African country.

"People were watching it was like a show," said Mohamed Ould Babby, a local official.

"I was there, I saw the youths arriving at the square, I saw them being whipped, it is the first time I have seen something like that." The woman, who was three months pregnant, has another child with her partner but the couple is not married.

According to Ansar Dine's strict interpretation of Islamic laws, that means the pair have committed the crime of "fornication", which is punishable with 100 lashes.

An Islamic police official in the town said six other women who had had children outside of marriage would soon be "punished by Islamic law".

Islam wins in U.K; pork right out from school menues

No more bangers and mash, no more sausages, no more sweet "other" white meat on school lunch menus as Islamic law plows over British common law...and common sense.  Sharia on the march and no one seems to have the backbone to stop it.  School and government officials say they are doing this to please both Muslim and Jewish students, yet one must ask how many Jewish students have rioted, threatened death or destruction while using the Qur'an and hadiths to justify their demands, or tried using the courts to force a school to acquiesce to their demands?  Let me think, and i'll get back to you on that in a minute...

Pork off the menu at some U.K. schools in bid to accommodate Jews, Muslims

Animal welfare, religious tolerance and political correctness all seem to be conflicting with each other in Britain as politicians, educators and community leaders try to balance dietary customs and liberal values. While the government tries to find a way to accommodate Jewish and Muslim ritual slaughter and at the same time conform with what they see as acceptable limits on cruelty to animals, schools across London are taking pork sausages, a long-time staple of children's meals, off the menu.

Two reports over the weekend highlight the clash. The Sunday Telegraph reported that in many areas of Britain's capital, schools were being advised by their local councils, or deciding on their own initiative, to ban all pork products from their menus. This move was out of consideration to Jewish and Muslim children and teachers yet has not been taken following official requests by either community. While many see this as another admirable effort by local British authorities to exhibit sensitivity towards religious and ethnical minorities, the move has attracted criticism from Conservative politicians and farmers' associations who see this as yet another attempt to encroach upon the traditional British way of life, in this case embodied by the good old bangers and mash, in the name of multiculturalism.

The Jewish community would not ask for this accommodation yet the Islamic community assumes non-Muslims will accommodate Islamic norms and expects nothing less.  They don't have to demand, although demanding a reform tilted towards Islam is always forthcoming.

Indeed, for all devout Jews and Muslims, this will not render the school meals more palatable, as non-Kosher and non-halal meat, beef, lamb or chicken, will still be on the menu. Jon Benjamin, the chief executive of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, told the newspaper that “this is simply not an issue. Jews of a certain level of observance would not eat in non-kosher restaurants or dining halls. Children at mainstream schools who are bothered would probably have packed lunches. Children who are comfortable with using the same cutlery and crockery as everyone else would choose their dishes from the options available. It is live and let live - we are certainly not calling for this.” (Benjamin is probably referring here to the custom of some Jews who don't keep kosher in any halachic sense, but will not eat pork all the same).

Mission triple shooting not being classified as attempted "honor killing"
Authorities are saying that they are not treating the shooting of three people in Mission as an attempted “honor killing.”

The suspect Talal Nimer is facing attempted murder charges after shooting his estranged wife, their daughter and their daughter’s boyfriend.

Mission police the gunman's Muslim faith did not play a role in their investigation.

More Kool-Aid, officer?

But when quizzed on why he did it, the Lebanese man admitted that he didn't like that his daughter was dating someone who's not Muslim.

He also felt his daughter's boyfriend was taking over as the man of the house.

Honor killings of young women dating outside their families Muslim faith or ethnic groups have been reported in England and Germany.

Another girl was killed in the Phoenix area by her father after she allegedly refused to enter in an arranged marriage.

According to Mission Police Chief Martin Garza, Nimer’s religious beliefs will not be taken into account.

Garza is an idiot and should be removed as soon as possible from his position.

Garza said police will they'll focus on several other factors.

The first is that Nimer and his estranged wife were going through a divorce after he admitted to cheating on her.

The second factor are statements from the family saying Nimer had previously threatened to kill them.

I would bet that these past threats were based in his daughters behavior and his anger over her insistence to live a "Western" life.

Currently, both the mom and the daughter's boyfriend are out of the hospital after undergoing surgeries.

The daughter remains hospitalized in stable condition.

She was shot in the neck and must undergo another surgery.

Jihadist who threatened South Park creators sentenced to 11 1/2 years in prison

Trey Parker and Matt Stone make fun of everyone, there are no sacred cows to them.  They portrayed Muhammad as a bear in one episode, and that is what got them in this jihadist's cross-hairs.  Jesse Curtis Morton is a convert to Islam and one who immediately misunderstood his new religion of peace, thinking it sanctioned hatred and threats of death.  Maybe Ibrahim Hooper should  wing his way to Virginia and explain to Morton what the real Islam means.

Muslim man sentenced after threatening TV show
(Reuters) - A Muslim convert from New York was sentenced on Friday to 11-1/2 years in prison after pleading guilty to threatening the writers of the satirical "South Park" television show for their depiction of the Prophet Mohammad and to other criminal charges.

Jesse Curtis Morton, 33, who is also known as Younus Abdullah Muhammed, was put on three years of probation after he completes his prison term. The sentence was handed down in federal court in Alexandria, Virginia, the U.S. Justice Department said.

Morton, who ran a website that encouraged Muslims to engage in violence against enemies of Islam, pleaded guilty in February to making threatening communications, using the Internet to put others in fear and using his position as leader of the Revolution Muslim organization's Internet sites to conspire to commit murder.

"Jesse Morton sought to inspire Muslims to engage in terrorism by providing doctrinal justification for violence against civilians in the name of Islam," U.S. Attorney Neil MacBride said.

"His crimes not only put people's lives forever in danger, but they also chilled free expression out of fear of retaliation by violent terrorists," MacBride said in a statement.

He had worked on website postings with Zachary Chesser of Virginia, who pleaded guilty in October 2010 to sending threatening communications to the "South Park" writers and to other charges.

Morton was arrested in Rabat, Morocco, last year and brought back to the United States, where he pleaded guilty. He had faced a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

Morton admitted he helped Chesser in taking repeated steps in April 2010 to encourage violent extremists to attack the "South Park" writers for the episode on the cable channel Comedy Central that featured Mohammad in a bear suit.

Most Muslims consider any depiction of the founder of Islam as offensive. Morton and Chesser posted where the writers resided and encouraged online readers to "pay them a visit," according to court documents.

Morton worked with Chesser to draft a message for the website about the "South Park" threats and they posted a final version of the statement on various extremist online forums.

Morton also conspired with Chesser and others to solicit the murder of an artist tied to the "Everyone Draw Mohammad Day" movement in May 2010, including posting online a magazine that included the artist in a hit list for violent extremists. Chesser was sentenced to 25 years in prison last year.

The case is USA v. Morton, No. 12-cr-35, in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia.

Ft. Hood jihadist defies judge, refuses to remove beard

Major Nidal Hasan, true to his jihadist roots has decided to mock the court and the judge and not shave his beard.  And why would Hasan grow a beard now?  "Lead defense attorney Lt. Col. Kris Poppe has said Hasan grew the beard as a "deeply sincere" expression of his Islamic faith and because he has a premonition he will die soon."  A expression of his Islamic faith, Hasan says, yet at the same time no one associated with the case would ever use the term "jihadist" in referring to Hasan, or even mention that possibly Islamic doctrine could have played a part in his rampage.  But now it is being accepted that the beard is part of his love and devotion for Islam and that is accepted with no questions.  

Anyone else see the contradiction here?

Judge bars Fort Hood shooting suspect from hearing

FORT HOOD, Texas — An Army psychiatrist charged in a deadly shooting rampage at Fort Hood was barred from military court by the judge Tuesday because he still has a beard.

Maj. Nidal Hasan was told that he couldn't attend any more hearings or the upcoming murder trial unless he shaves. The judge, Col. Gregory Gross, initially warned Hasan that he was violating Army policy at a hearing earlier this month.

The hearing on several other motions, including a possible trial delay, continued with Hasan watching on closed-circuit television from a nearby room.

Lead defense attorney Lt. Col. Kris Poppe has said Hasan grew the beard as a "deeply sincere" expression of his Islamic faith and because he has a premonition he will die soon.

Hasan faces the death penalty if convicted of 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted premeditated murder in the November 2009 attack at the Texas post.

An American-born Muslim, Hasan has been clean-shaven in all other court appearances until earlier this month.

A prosecutor, Lt. Col. Steve Henricks, said Hasan never grew a beard during his military career and was only doing so now to prevent witnesses from identifying him at trial.

"We doubt that (religion) is the motive," Henricks told the judge.

Clueless oaf.  Hasan had on his business card the letters "SoA" which means Soldier of Allah.  He also gave away multiple copies of the Qur'an to his neighbors before the shooting and as he pulled the trigger he was shouting "Allahu Akbar."  But remember, Henricks says religion had nothing to do with it.

Boko Haram claims responsibility for Nigeria church bombings

Abuja, Nigeria (CNN) -- A militant Islamist group claimed responsibility Monday for bombings the day before that the Nigerian Red Cross said left 50 people dead at three Christian churches in Nigeria.

Boko Haram said the attacks Sunday in the Nigerian cities of Zaria and Kaduna were retaliation on Christians for destroying mosques and, according to the group, turning others into "beer parlour and prostitution joints."

"Let them know that now it's the time for revenge God willing," the group said in a statement. "From now on, they either follow the right religion or there will be no peace for them."

Government and Red Cross figures on the death toll in Sunday's attacks differed. However, the bombings at two churches and a third in Kaduna left at least 50 people dead and 131 wounded according to the Red Cross.

Kaduna state officials loosened a 24-hour curfew imposed after the attacks, saying people could be on the streets from 2 to 6 p.m. However, resident Anthony Majindadi said most people were staying indoors and his area still looked like a ghost town.

The series of attacks began when a suicide bomber drove at high speed through a barricade at the EWCA Goodnews Wusasa Zaria church around 9 a.m., congregation member Lucy Bello said.

A Kaduna state official, who asked to remain anonymous because he was not authorized to speak to the media, said that blast killed at least 24 people and injured 125.

The Nigerian Red Cross Society, however, reported that two people died and 22 were injured in the attack.

Within minutes, another explosion occurred at the Christ the King Catholic Church in Zaria, according to Nigeria's National Emergency Management Agency.

At least 10 people died and more than 50 were injured in that attack, the state government official said.

The sweet taste of Islam

Candies, fruits, sweets of all kinds are passed around after a victory by Islam.  It happened after 9-11, it happens each time a Jew is murdered by a shaheed, or martyr and it happens when Islam spreads a little further across the globe.  Gazans are rejoicing at the win of Islam in Egypt, although we will know for sure this coning Thursday when all the votes have been counted.

Gazans hand out sweets, celebrate claim of Islamist's win in Egypt presidential election
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip — Palestinians in the Gaza Strip on Monday welcomed the claim of a Muslim Brotherhood victory in Egypt's presidential election, distributing sweets, praising God and expressing hope for a new era of warm relations between Gaza and Egypt.

Gaza, a small, densely populated territory, borders Egypt's Sinai Peninsula. The strip's ruling militant Hamas group is a local offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood and draws inspiration from the Egyptian organization.

As the Brotherhood claimed victory early Monday in Cairo, dozens of drivers in Gaza City honked their horns and decorated their cars with Palestinian and Egyptian flags, green Hamas banners and posters of Egypt's Brotherhood candidate, Mohammed Morsi.

Hamas activists distributed sweets at the main intersections across Gaza, and loudspeakers at local mosques blared out messages of joy and victory. Shopkeepers in Gaza's main commercial center eagerly followed the claim from Egypt.

"The news from Egypt is a great victory for all Muslims and for us in Gaza," said Sameh Ramdan, a 23-year-old student and Hamas supporter.

If Morsi's victory is confirmed in the official result expected on Thursday, it would be the first victory of an Islamist as head of state in the stunning wave of pro-democracy uprisings of the Arab Spring last year.

Hamas jubilant over Mursi’s Egyptian presidential victory claim

Hamas leaders and supporters in Gaza Strip celebrated Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood presidential victory, according to preliminary results announced on Monday.

The Islamist bloc’s candidate Mohammed Mursi claimed he had won the election over former prime minister Ahmed Shafiq in the early hours of Monday, in line with primary results that were announced later that day.

Hamas spokesperson Sami Abu Zohri said that the result, which will be officially announced by the electoral body on Thursday, is a victory for the Egyptian people, its martyrs and the uprising which ousted former president Hosni Mubarak last year.

But perhaps more significantly for Hamas, an Islamist group born from the Muslim Brotherhood which controls the Gaza Strip, Zohri said that Mursi’s win will help break the siege on Gaza and support the Palestinian cause, especially on the issue of the disputed Jerusalem, Egypt Independent reported.

Mursi amassed 13.2 million votes, according to Al Arabiya TV, citing the primary vote counts, which resulted in a 51.8 percent win – against 12.3 million for Shafiq.

Initial results contain a margin of error of about two percentage points, meaning the result may be premature.

Just what we need, a contested Islamic election.

Putrajaya reining in LGBT spread, says deputy minister
KUALA LUMPUR, June 19 — The government views the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans-sexual (LGBT) issue seriously and is controlling its spread through prevention efforts and legal enforcement, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Datuk Dr Mashitah Ibrahim told the Dewan Rakyat today.

She said these efforts were done with the help of the Islamic Development Department (Jakim) and State Religious Department (Jain) through programmes such as the BEST! Tour which aimed to educate teenagers on social ills such as HIV Aids caused by homosexual lifestyles.

“A series of rehabilitation and treatment courses will also be given to Muslims who have deviated from societal norms, while Jakim and Jain have conducted a Mukhayyam programme with repented transsexuals to obtain positive feedback from them,” she said in reply to an original question from Datuk Mohd Jidin (BN-Setiu) who wanted to know the government’s seriousness in tackling LGBT issues in the country.

In terms of enforcement, she said laws clearly stated in the Syariah Criminal Offences (Federal Territories) Act 1997 (Act 559) can only be enforced on Muslims.

Dr Mashitah said the government and state religious authorities will take legal action against any Muslims involved in LGBT and who flout laws in each state.

There are no legal and religious provisions in Malaysia that allow homosexuality, free sex and same-sex marriages, she added. — Bernama

Fighting "Islamophobia" by the OIC

The Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) has been working towards the stifling of speech against Islam for decades now, trying to have any speech about Islam or Muslims made illegal through the UN.  They want the dreaded scourge of "Islamophobia" to be routed and defeated once and for all and have, and will continue to do everything they can to take away the right to say what is on your mind.

They have not succeeded yet and until then we still have our voices, and we will raise them until there is no breath left.

If Islam really wanted to get rid of "Islamophobia" they can do some simple things like turn their anger against those who perpetrate jihad acts, not those who write and talk about it.  They can also work with law enforcement more closely to root our jihadists in their communities and loudly denounce those who keep yelling "Allahu Akbar" while killing non-Muslims.  These would be great places to start.

Organization of Islamic Cooperation top dog urges member countries to intensify efforts to resolve "Islamophobia"

If the OIC really wants to resolve "Islamophobia," it doesn't really have to stamp out the freedom of speech, although that is what it is determined to do. Here is a much preferable way. The OIC can do these things, and call on Muslims in the U.S. and elsewhere to do them as well:

1. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.
2. Renounce definitively, sincerely, honestly, and in deeds, not just in comforting words, not just "terrorism," but any intention to replace the U.S. Constitution (or the constitutions of any non-Muslim state) with Sharia even by peaceful means. In line with this, clarify what is meant by their condemnations of the killing of innocent people by stating unequivocally that American and Israeli civilians are innocent people, teaching accordingly in mosques and Islamic schools, and behaving in accord with these new teachings.
3. Teach, again sincerely and honestly, in transparent and verifiable ways in mosques and Islamic schools, the imperative of Muslims coexisting peacefully as equals with non-Muslims on an indefinite basis, and act accordingly.
4. Begin comprehensive international programs in mosques all over the world to teach sincerely against the ideas of violent jihad and Islamic supremacism.
5. Actively and honestly work with Western law enforcement officials to identify and apprehend jihadists within Western Muslim communities.

If Muslims do those five things, voila! "Islamophobia" will evanesce!

"OIC urges member-countries to resolve problem with Islamophobia," from Trend, June 18:
Secretary General of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu has urged member-countries to intensify efforts in resolving Islamophobia, the organization said today.

He added that some European politicians promote hatred toward foreigners and Islam rather than engage in economic and social problems of the country.

Back by popular demand: Jew-hating from the PA

It was so good the first time it deserved repeating.  Children reciting vitriolic prose against Israel and Jews on TV.  If any other culture tried this, the condemnations would pour in.  Not so with the "Palestinians" and their handlers.  The West gives tacit approval by maintaining silence which is the worst crime of all.  How we sleep at night knowing kids as young a 5 are being used in this way.  It shouldn't surprise, as Hamas used children as human shields during Operation Cast Lead and freely admitted it.  No condemnation, no ostracism, no wagging fingers, just more blindness and hope that what we were seeing did not really happen.

Your fathers and your sons are being massacred, your Al-Aqsa [Mosque] is defiled and destroyed."
Host: "Bravo! Applause for our friend Lara."

and that our wars were for the Al-Aqsa Mosque,
and that our enemy, Zion, is Satan with a tail...
Our division is by your hands [Arab rulers]. May your hands be cut off.
We are fed up with our division, while all people are uniting."
