Troopathon 2012; another success

Troopathon 2012
You probably saw this logo in the upper right corner of the blog that asked for troop support.  We did this last year and again this year, and even as I did not have a chance to publicly announce that we were doing this again for 2012, you, the readers seemed to already know the importance of the program and decided to donate.  Even with the short notice, our team "The Anti-Jihadists" headed by Spencer and Geller came in third in total donated amount.

Here is a note from Danny Gonzalez of;

To: Dr. Spencer, Ms. Geller, Barry, Cao, Ralph and the whole Anti-Jihad crew,
Thank you guys so much for helping out with Troopathon AGAIN this year. We are almost up to our goal of $400,000 for the troops. Fundraising was tough this year, but I think we got lucky with a few really big donors who stepped up and made some very generous donations.

Thank you guys for helping us reach as big of an audience as we could. I am sorry that the blogger competition got started so late this year, we just got really busy and we have cut down on staff here, so everyone’s hands were a little more burdened with tasks this year. I hope that you can forgive me and next year we will do better!

Congratulations you guys won third in the competition! I have attached a graphic to sport on your websites if you wish. Last year we did a ‘trophy’ type looking thing. This year with the Olympics coming up, I thought the idea of doing medals would be cool. We hope you like them! Thanks again!

And a quick note from Pamela Geller;
Great work, guys.

Thanks to all, together we make a difference.

Plots and schemes from those evil Jews

From long-time reader "DJ" comes this list of the latest travesties committed by Israel.

Oh those evil Zionists, what will they think of next!

From VeryGoodNewsIsrael July 22



“It’s not a product – it’s an industry”. Israeli biotech Medgenics’ CEO said its Biopump technology has the potential to “start a whole new pharmaceutical industry”. Medgenics’ technology manipulates patients’ own tissue to produce proteins to fight diseases, eliminating the need for hundreds of vaccines.

A deal to fight cancer. Israeli biotech BioView’s cancer scanning systems will be integrated with French company ScreenCell’s technology to isolate rare tumour cells. The combined solution will improve diagnosis and speed up medical decisions about the best treatment options.

New heart valve centre. US biotech ValCare is to open a centre in Israel to develop a heart valve repair device. The mitral annuloplasty device is implanted using a catheter, thus avoiding open-heart surgery. It prevents mitral valve regurgitation (blood flowing backwards into the heart) affecting 4 million US citizens.

PillCam gets approval in Japan. Japan's Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has issued reimbursement codes for Israel’s Given Imaging internal camera, so that it can be used as a first line tool in diagnoses.

Advanced medical clowning. (Thanks to Israel21c) Some of the world’s leading experts participated in the first Advanced Medical Clowning International Summer Seminar at the University of Haifa. Israel is a leader in professionalizing the field of medical clowning and providing scientific evidence for its effectiveness.


Clearing runways can save life. FODetect from Israel’s Xsight uses hybrid radar and electro optical technology to detect junk on runways. The system can prevent incidents such as when an Air France Concorde hit Foreign Object Debris (FOD) from a previous flight, caught fire and crashed, killing 113 people.

CAIR tries to get former Iranian Guard/CIA operative dismissed from DoD lecture circuit

This time CAIR fails, and Raza Kahlili (not his real name) will speak on his adventures.  CAIR has been assured, however that Kahlili will not speak about Islam.  I wonder how one speaks about the dangers of Iran without addressing Islamic doctrine?

CAIR pushes DoD to drop ex-CIA operative lecturer, claims anti-Islam

The Council on American Islamic Relations is urging the Pentagon to drop a former CIA operative inside Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as a lecturer at the Department of Defense’s Joint Counterintelligence Training Academy.

The group claims that the views of the former operative, who has been teaching, writing and lecturing about the dangers Iran poses to the West under the pseudonym Reza Kahlili, is anti-Islam and promoting his own agenda as a former Muslim.

“This is yet another unfortunate example of our nation’s military and counterterrorism personnel being trained by individuals who weaken America’s security by promoting their own religious and political agendas,” wrote CAIR national Executive Director Nihad Awad in a letter sent to Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta, Monday.

According to Kahlili, who reports for The Daily Caller on a freelance basis, his lectures at the JCITA are about the intelligence operation of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard, not Islam. He noted, however, that CAIR’s distaste for him probably stems from the intersections between the two.

“CAIR is likely upset with my articles and news pieces on the fact that the guards intelligence also runs operations out of Islamic centers and Mosques,” Kahlili explained to TheDC in an email. “If they truly care about the Islamic community in America and the sanctity of the Mosque, they should welcome such information and help authorities to weed out such operators from ordinary Muslims so that another 09/11 does not take place.”

Churches Should Not Be Built In Islamic Countries, Say Preachers
KUWAIT CITY, July 26: A group of Islamic preachers claimed that churches should not be built in Islamic countries particularly in the Arabian Peninsula following the issuance of an approval for constructing a church in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, reports Al-Watan Arabic daily.

Undersecretary of Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs Mutlaq Al-Qarawi stressed that the ministry is not responsible for issuing licenses for building churches, and only receives the applications for licenses, which they refer immediately to the Municipality for review.

Meanwhile, Sheikh Nazem Al-Misbah pointed out that the Fatwa and Legislation Department should be questioned for such issues, stressing that based on his knowledge about Islam, it is forbidden to build churches in the Arabian Peninsula.

Adding to the Sheikh Nazem’s comment, Sheikh Mohammad Humoud Al-Najdi said building churches in Kuwait should be prohibited, as Kuwait is a part of the Arabian Peninsula.

Furthermore, Sheikh Sayed A-Rifae Al-Husseini expressed displeasure towards Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, and the Municipality for approving the construction of a new church in Jleeb Al-Shuyoukh, stressing that it is not permissible as per the Sharia.

He added that giving excuses such as it is a matter of human rights and international norms to build it, is not acceptable, as Islam comes first, and people should respect religion first before serving humanity or anything else.

DOJ official refuses to say the administration will never advance anti-blasphemy laws

The implications are staggering.  If the administration goes forward with future plans to squelch free speech regarding criticism of religions (specifically Islam) and demonize through federal law the speech which is critical of Islam, we all might as well say the shahada and become Muslim.  The opportunities for the advancement of sharia law and Islamic dogma will have no impediment, effectively turning the US into the United States of Islam.

Obama is no friend of freedom`, and his re-election will only result in four more years of kneeling before Muhammad through the abdication of constitutional freedoms in the name of tolerance and bridge-building.

God help us all.

DOJ official refuses to promise that DOJ will NEVER advance an anti-blasphemy law

A stunning exchange took place today when Assistant AG Tom Perez of the DOJ Civil Rights Division refused to commit to the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution that it would never advance a law criminalizing the right to criticize any religion.The non-commital answer by Perez was in response to a question asked by Rep. Trent Frank (R-AZ): “Will you tell us here today that this Administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?”

Policeman reports fake terrorist bomb plot, no action taken against him yet

The officer had just completed a regional Special Branch terrorism course and still decided, as a joke to phone in a fake bomb threat.  Would it surprise you to find out the officer who perpetrated the hoax is a Muslim?

Yeah, me too.

From the Daily Mail July 25 by Ryan Kisiel

Police officer caused major terror alert after ringing colleagues with a coded ‘bomb threat’ for a joke

A police officer caused a major terrorism alert after ringing a busy port with a hoax bomb threat.

PC Hatef Nezami, 48, rang colleagues at the police Special Branch office with a coded message that a device was placed in a busy port.

Specialist terrorism staff were so concerned by the call's authentic nature that they started preparing for a full terrorist attack.

The constable, who has completed a regional Special Branch terrorism course, said that a bomb was on a Condor ferry based in Poole, Dorset.

However at the time of his call, the ferry was actually sailing across the English Channel packed full of people travelling to the Channel Islands.

Mr Nezami is believed to have tried to call back to reveal his 'joke' call but was unable to do so for half an hour as staff were engaged on all the available phone lines alerting authorities.

Remarkably, the Daily Mail understands that Mr Nezami, who has worked as a detective, has not faced criminal or disciplinary proceedings and was simply placed on uniform patrol at another station.

The maximum penalty for making a hoax bomb threat is a prison sentence of seven years.

We Must Run These Ads

MTA Crimped Free Speech, Judge Rules Wall Street Journal

New York bus system can't bar pro-Israel, ‘defeat Jihad’ ads Reuters

We won the free speech battle, but the war isn’t even close to over. Your contribution will get these ads up in New York and California. It is critical in the war of ideas. The enemedia is at war with the truth. Help us fight in the information battle-space.

On Friday, we won a huge victory for the freedom of speech. A Federal Judge ruled that New York’s Metropolitan Transit Authority had violated our First Amendment rights by not allowing us to run our pro-Israel ad.

Now we can run our pro-freedom, pro-Israel, anti-jihad ads all over the country – if only we have the resources to do so.

All over the country, we can tell the simple truth that the media fears to tell: “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man. Defeat jihad. Support Israel.”

The First Amendment still exists, even in this age of Obama, and Muslims aren’t a protected class in the U.S. – at least not yet.

This is great news. But these ads aren’t cheap. We are running these ads in New York, California, DC and NY's Metro-North. The least expensive run for ads in the New York City subway system is $10,000.

Islamic supremacists and Hamas front groups, funded by unsavory, shadowy figures overseas, are running anti-Israel hate ads all over the country. We intend to match them city for city. The court ruling shows that we have just as much right to tell the truth as they do to spread their lies, and we intend to do it.

We’re also continuing our lawsuit against Detroit’s SMART transit system for refusing to run our ads offering help to Muslims who want to leave Islam but are threatened for doing so: we already won that case, but Detroit’s dhimmi authorities still won’t put our ads up.

Everywhere they restrict our First Amendment rights, we will sue. Everywhere. And everywhere we win – and we will continue to win – we will put up our ads in defense of truth, freedom and human rights.

But the costs continue to mount. We do so much with so little. We are not backed by wealthy foundations or philanthropists, and do not have a massive donor base. We depend solely on you: on individuals who value the freedom of the individual and the dignity of the human person. Without your support, we would not have been able to get this far. Now that we have won the battle for free speech, please help us follow
through and place as many ads as we can.

Please donate via Paypal to or tax-deductible We don’t get salaries and we don’t have a staff. Your contribution will go entirely to our work for freedom. And for that, may God bless you.

Canada: burqa wearing teen buys liquor and no one asks to see a face or ask for ID because of cultural sensitivity

SUN NEWS EXCLUSIVE - LCBO sells booze to 14-year-old wearing burka
Who knows the identity behind the mask?  The Shadow Knows!

From The Sun July 24 by Terry Davidson

LCBO sells booze to 14-year-old wearing burka

TORONTO - Three liquor stores recently sold booze to a 14-year-old boy whose identity was hidden because he was wearing a full-length burka and face veil at the time, a Sun News Network exclusive has found.

The teenager, clad in an Islamic female's traditional garb of a burka, headscarf and facial covering, shopped in three different LCBO stores north of Toronto last Wednesday.

In each location, the Grade 8 student paid cash for a bottle of sambuca liqueur.

Ontario's Liquor Licence Act requires that before liquor is sold, government-issued photo ID -- a drivers licence, for example -- must be inspected if the buyer is suspected of being under the legal drinking age of 19.

Under the LCBO's Check 25 program, employees can ask for ID from people who appear under age 25 -- a policy implemented in 1997 to prevent young people who appear older than their actual age from purchasing alcohol.

The stunt was co-ordinated and video recorded by Sun News Network host David Menzies, who has made a career out of lambasting Canada's politically correct institutions.

Menzies said the unopened bottles -- totalling just over $80 -- were promptly taken from the teen.

But Menzies suggested the fact the boy was never asked to uncover his face or show photo identification at multiple store locations reveals a deeply ingrained reluctance on the part of Canadian institutions to challenge cultural practices, even when they conflict with broader societal goals such as preventing underage drinking.

"The reason why you have to unveil is that is photo ID is absolutely useless if you don't see the actual face of the person," Menzies said, adding he came up with the idea after an acquaintance told him he had seen this happen at various LCBO locations.

"They didn't ask for an unveiling, and they didn't even ask for (photo identification) ... You say you're socially responsible, you have the policy codified ... but nobody follows it," Menzies said Monday.

LCBO spokesman Chris Layton said in an e-mail that employees have a responsibility to view customers' faces as part of the age-verification process, and if a customer's face is covered, "Staff are required to ask the customer to remove the covering."

This includes religious face coverings, as well, Layton later said in a phone interview.

"Maybe we need to remind our staff of their obligations under the Liquor Licence Act," Layton said, insisting the employees may have been trying to be "culturally sensitive" in each situation.

Which in this day and age can get one killed.

Victory in England; Muslim Doctor told he must follow the rules of Britain and pay his ex-wife

Arguing that Islamic law prohibits this kind of payment, Dr. Zaid Al-Saffar tried to have sharia law prevail in his divorce, but to no avail.  Score one for the good guys.

From the Daily Mail July 25 by Steve Doughty

You can't use sharia law in divorce deal: Muslim hospital consultant told to pay ex-wife maintenance despite claims he owes her nothing under Islamic rules

A Muslim hospital consultant was told yesterday that he must pay his ex-wife maintenance even though under Islamic rules he believes he owes her nothing.
A judge told Dr Zaid Al-Saffar that he must follow ‘the rule in this country’ and share his money.

The Appeal Court decision means Dr Al-Saffar must pay £60,000 to his former wife, academic Hanan Al-Saffar.

The ruling sounded a warning to Muslim couples who believe their marriages are ordered according to sharia law and agree to be bound by Islamic courts.

Lord Justice Ward told Dr Al-Saffar: ‘The rule in this country is that you share and the starting point is equal division.

‘You came out of the marriage without having made your wife any substantial capital payment.’

He added: ‘Life is sometimes hard; do not be consumed with bitterness.’

But Dr Al-Saffar said after the case: ‘By playing the system and pretending to be a victim she got everything, which I think is totally unfair.

Family law in this country is biased against Muslim people.’ 

Sharia law is biased against women and children.

The consultant rheumatologist at Scarborough Hospital in North Yorkshire, who is also the head of the Islamic Society in the resort town, was married for eight years, and the couple had two children.

The marriage was formalised following the Islamic tradition of Mahr, under which the groom pays a gift to his bride.

Because of this, his wife had signed away her share of the couple’s home in Belvedere Road, in Scarborough.

Syria: FSA persecuting Christians, thousands flee fighting

Christians, like Jews are always at the wrong end of the spear.  The Free Syrian Army, while ostensibly fighting for the "Arab Spring" principles of rampant democracy and secularism within society are actually "radicalizing" more rapidly than thought.  Also remember that this group is being supported by the Obama administration with all kinds of material and logistics, items that are being used to persecute and kill non-Muslims.  One must ask then; is supporting the FSA really such a good idea?  Well, with Obama acting like the Muslim some believe he is, the help from the US to the FSA will always be seen as a good thing.  I wonder if that thought helps the Christians in Syria feel better about their situation?

Christians Flee from Radical Rebels in Syria

There had been many warnings that the Khouri* family wouldn't talk. "They won't say a word -- they're too scared," predicted the mayor of Qa, a small market town in northeastern Lebanon where the Khouris are staying. "They won't even open their door for journalists," said another person, who had contacted the family on behalf of a non-governmental organization.

Somehow, though, the interview was arranged in the end. Reserved and halting, the women described what happened to their husbands, brothers and nephews back in their hometown of Qusayr in Syria. They were killed by Syrian rebel fighters, the women said -- murdered because they were Christians, people who in the eyes of radical Islamist freedom fighters have no place in the new Syria.

In the past year and a half, since the beginning of the uprising against Syria's authoritarian President Bashar Assad, hundreds of thousands of Syrians have fled their homes and sought safe haven abroad. Inside the country, the United Nations estimates that 1 million people have left their homes to escape violence and are now internally displaced. The majority are likely to have fled to escape the brutality of Assad's troops. Indeed, as was the case at the start of the Syrian civil war, most of the violence is still being perpetrated by the army, the secret services and groups of thugs steered by the state.

With fighting ongoing, however, the rebels have also committed excesses. And some factions within the patchwork of disparate groups that together comprise the Free Syrian Army have radicalized at a very rapid clip in recent months. A few are even being influenced by foreign jihadists who have traveled to Syria to advise them. That, at least, is what witnesses on the ground are reporting in Qusayr, where fierce fighting has raged for months. Control of the town has passed back and forth between the two sides, at times falling into the hands of the regime and at others of the rebels. Currently, fighters with the Free Syrian Army have the upper hand, and they have also made the city of 40,000 residents a place where the country's Christian minority no longer feels safe.

Campaigns against Christians

"There were always Christians in Qusayr -- there were around 10,000 before the war," says Leila, the matriarch of the Khouri clan. Currently, 11 members of the clan are sharing two rooms. They include the grandmother, grandfather, three daughters, one husband and five children. "Despite the fact that many of our husbands had jobs in the civil service, we still got along well with the rebels during the first months of the insurgency." The rebels left the Christians alone. The Christians, meanwhile, were keen to preserve their neutrality in the escalating power struggle. But the situation began deteriorating last summer, Leila says, murmuring a bit more before going silent.

"We're too frightened to talk," her daughter Rim explained, before mustering the courage to continue. "Last summer Salafists came to Qusayr, foreigners. They stirred the local rebels against us," she says. Soon, an outright campaign against the Christians in Qusayr took shape. "They sermonized on Fridays in the mosques that it was a sacred duty to drive us away," she says. "We were constantly accused of working for the regime. And Christians had to pay bribes to the jihadists repeatedly in order to avoid getting killed."

Grandmother Leila made the sign of the cross. "Anyone who believes in this cross suffers," she says.

Al Qaeda releases new ad campaign; "Destroying the Walls" for Ramadan in Iraq

"The Ministry of War has mobilized its sons and mujahideen brigades and their military groups in a new blessed foray in the holy month of Ramadan"

Wonderful.  Where's Hallmark when we need them?

From the Buenos Aires Herald July 25

Al Qaeda announces 'start of a new stage of jihad' in Iraq

Al Qaeda's affiliate in Iraq has claimed responsibility for scores of attacks across the country against mostly Shi'ite Muslim targets this week which killed and wounded hundreds of people.

The Islamic State of Iraq (ISI) said in a statement posted on radical Islamist websites today that it was behind the recent attacks, which it called its "Destroying the Walls" campaign and said was the start of a "new stage of jihad".

At least 116 people were killed and about 300 wounded in bomb and gun attacks yesterday, by far the bloodiest day of violence since US troops withdrew in December. A day earlier 20 were killed in bombings as part of a co-ordinated surge of violence.

"The Ministry of War has mobilized its sons and mujahideen brigades and their military groups in a new blessed foray in the holy month of Ramadan," the ISI statement said.

"Simultaneous and co-ordinated jihadist operations have swept across the country in a spate which stunned the enemy, made him lose his sense and showed the failure of intelligence and security plans which filled the world with noise and bluster."

Ramadan has started for the Muslim world, as have the arrests

What is haram, or forbidden in Islam includes blood, urine and alcohol.  If you are in possession of alcohol you are committing a grievous sin, and will probably be physically punished.   So it goes in moderate, modern Kuwait, and the new secular, democratic Egypt.  Ironically, the article about Egypt, which shows how sharia law is enforced in what is supposed to be a secular and democratic Islamic country is not a recent piece.  It is from September 2009, showing once again that sharia law is now, and has been for a long time, practiced in Egypt.

Both articles are from BikyaMasr

First, this from Kuwait July 24

Kuwait police arrest, detain man for drinking in public during Ramadan

DUBAI: It is illegal to drink or eat in public in Kuwait during the holy month of Ramadan, where Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset.

Over the weekend, Kuwaiti police said they made the first arrest of someone who failed to abide by their strict conditions during the holy month.

Police have indicated that a police patrol saw an “Asian drinking water from a bottle during the day.”

Nothing like a religion that denies your basic human requirements for survival.

When the man was approached by officers and asked why he was not fasting, the man told them his sect “had not yet started fasting.”

Police disregarded the excuse and arrested him.

Under Kuwait law, anyone caught drinking or eating in public during fasting times is detained and held until after the Eid holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.

Next from Egypt 

Egypt arrests 155 for "not fasting" during Ramadan

CAIRO: Egyptian police in Aswan have arrested 155 people for “not fasting” during the holy month of Ramadan. According to local reports from the southern Egyptian city, police have targeted those who “break their fast publicly” and if caught eating or drinking anything in daylight, police have arrested them immediately, including one man who was purchasing juice for his family.

That man, Ahmed Mustafa, was quoted by al-Youm al-Saba’a as saying “I was standing at the store buying juice for my children for Iftar [meal that breaks the fast],” adding that he was indeed fasting. He is just one of many citizens who have felt the heavy hand of Egyptian police during the holy month.

It is part of an odd campaign launched by the interior ministry in the southern governorate. According to ministry officials, they want to show Egyptians “what life is like for a hard-line country,” such as Saudi Arabia, where penalties for breaking the fast early can result in lashings or imprisonment.

The campaign of the Egyptian Interior Ministry to “simulate” the experience of some Muslim-majority countries such as Saudi and Kuwait, which punishes those who eat or drink in public during pre-breakfast time in Ramadan has been widely criticized.

Human Rights groups, jurists and activists have condemned the arrests and called for the “campaign” to be rescinded as fears over the unprecendented move in Egypt are rising fears and concerns that hard-line police officers are taking control of the law without cause.

“It is horrible what is going on and we cannot stand by and allow this to continue, because we want to live in a free society,” said Ahmed, a member of the powerful Muslim Brotherhood. “Religion is not compulsory and this should be maintained.”

Not any more, Ahmed.  Not any more.  And the finger is pointed directly at you and your cronies.

Report on Ft. Hood shooter; Islam had little to do with the attack

The depth of ignorance combined with willful blindness and political correctness continues to astound me.  This report mentions nothing about how Maj. Nidal Hasan gave away multiple copies of the Qur'an to friends, bathed and dressed in typical martyr fashion. had the letters SoA (soldier of Allah)on his military business card and had already gone off the jihadist deep end in giving a talk where he ranted about the coming Muslim apocalypse.  Not to mention his numerous emails with Anwar al-Awlaki, the now dead American jihadist and mentor to many aspiring shaheed.

This report shows there are more useful idiots doing more to harm America than protect it.

From The Daily Caller July 20 by Neil Munro

Report downplays Islamic role in Fort Hood jihadi attack

No government officials should be penalized for their inaction while they watched an online al-Qaida organizer persuade U.S. Army Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan to murder twelve of his fellow soldiers at Foot Hood in 2009, says the final report of an independent panel.

“Although we are critical of certain actions and omissions, we do not regard any of those actions to be misconduct that would warrant administrative or disciplinary action,” said the third-last paragraph on the 150-page report, titled “Final Report of the William H. Webster Commission.”

“Some missteps occurred because there was no stated policy or binding directive in place that would have required different actions … [but] absent formal policy guidance on the assignment and resolution of Routine leads, the delay cannot be said to involve misconduct,” said the paragraph.

The report was overseen by William Webster, who headed the FBI from 1978 to 1987.

The report was distributed July 20 with the announcement that Republican Rep. Frank Wolfe will hold a August 1 committee hearing on the report. The witness will include an FBI official, Mark Giuliano, who is the executive assistant director of the FBI’s National Security Branch.

The report says Hasan yelled the Islamic war-cry — “Allahu akbar!” which means “Allah is supreme” — as he shot his fellow Americans in Fort Hood.

On his business card, Hasan described himself as a “soldier of Allah,” who is the Muslim god.

In place of Islamic texts, the report blames Hasan’s self-described religious motivation on a non-religious psychological process of “violent radicalization.”

On page seven, the report declares that “most terrorists are psychologically normal as individuals, and do not fit a medical diagnostic category.” However, the report argues that “radicalization occurs when followers submit to the collective identity and leaders identify a shared enemy as a target for violent behavior.”

The report did not treat Islamic radicalization as a subset of radicalization amid the many jihadi attacks on U.S. civilians and soldiers, but instead lumped it under a very broad category of “radicalization.”

“Radicalization — whether based on religious, political, social, or other causes — challenges the capability and capacity of the FBI and other members of the U.S. Intelligence Community to identify, collect, analyze, and act on accurate intelligence in time to detect and deter those who would commit violence,” says the report.

To combat “radicalization,” the report urges the FBI to increase information sharing, buy better computers and better protect suspects’ privacy.

Yeah, that'll solve the problem.  Idiots all.

Morsi: The Deafening Silence

Joel Brinkley, in the Chicago Tribune makes some very prescient observations on the new Egyptian president.

From the Chicago Tribune July 17 by Joel Brinkley

Joel Brinkley: In Egypt, Morsi's silence speaks volumes
Mohammed Morsi has been Egypt's president for less than a month, and already senior clerics in his country and around the Islamic world are loudly calling for the demolition of the pyramids, Egypt's most important tourist attraction and among the Seven Wonders of the World.

Saudi Sheik Ali bin Said al-Rabi'i called them heinous "symbols of paganism." In recent days, similar calls have been echoing through Egypt and the region, including one from a Bahraini sheik who urged Morsi to "destroy the pyramids and accomplish what the Amr bin al-As could not." He was referring to the Prophet Muhammad's companion who conquered Egypt in the seventh century but didn't have the technological wherewithal to accomplish the task.

None of this should be too surprising. Islamic extremists are now destroying 15th century tombs in Timbuktu, world heritage sites, because they are considered "idolatrous." And remember in 2001, when the Taliban fired heavy artillery at two huge Buddha statutes carved into a rock face about 1,700 years ago. Taliban leader Mullah Omar had issued an edict against un-Islamic graven images. Numerous other examples exist, contemporary and ancient.

What's surprising is that Morsi has had nothing to say about this, not a word. Neither has he said anything about numerous "freelance" efforts to enforce other elements of Shariah law across Egypt, even though his new government hasn't said that's his plan.

Well, his extremist allies are already trying to enforce an ancient Koranic commandment that directs Islamists to collect a tax called the jizya from Coptic Christians and other "non-believers." Ahmed Imran, who was a Salafist-party candidate for office, recently declared that "Copts are obligated to pay the jizya." And as Raymond Ibrahim, an Egyptian-American author and columnist of Coptic ancestry, recently wrote: "Increasing numbers of attacks on Christians in Egypt revolve around extorting jizya."

The Koran (9/29) declares: "Fight those who do not believe in Allah" until "they give the jizyah willingly while they are humbled." Once again, Morsi has said nothing about this.

Malaysa: LGBT are enemies of Islam

Wait, isn't modern, moderate Malaysia a beacon of tolerance and multicultural inclusion, the perfect example of a secular Islamic country that can compete on the modern stage in all aspects of human development and rights?  Or am I wrong?

From The Malaysian Insider July 19 by Hafidz Baharom 

Najib: LGBTs, liberalism, pluralism are enemies of Islam
Down with Liberace, Barry Manilow and Elton John!

SERDANG, July 19 ― The lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community along with liberalism and pluralism were today branded as enemies of Islam by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak in front of a crowd of over 11,000 imams and mosque committee members from across the nation.

“LGBTs, pluralism, liberalism ― all these ‘isms’ are against Islam and it is compulsory for us to fight these,” he said.

Najib also said the government supports human rights, but within the boundaries of Islam.

We do support human rights, but we must do so within the boundaries set by Islam,” he said.

Human rights within Islam must also include stoning to death for being raped, second class status for non-Muslims, upholding honor killings as justified, marrying and having sex with 9 year old girls, persecution of Christians and Jews per the Qur'an, expansion of Islam through forced conversions and the suppression of speech which critiques or questions Islamic theology or Muhammad.

The prime minister also told Muslims to avoid discord which could threaten those who safeguard Islamic principles.

“If the nation falls into a state of chaos, who will safeguard these people?” he asked.

The event, organised by the Prime Minister’s Office, started off with the Minister in Prime Minister’s Office Maj-Gen (R) Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom saying that imams must defend the government against these threats.

“There are so many attacks on our religion. LGBTs, pluralism, liberalism, Seksualiti Merdeka. We must stand strong and defend the government,” he said.

Attendees were also given a book which was written by Najib himself, entitled “Agenda Islam Dalam Transformasi Negara”.

Yesterday, Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim also said that he did not support the rights of LGBTs and advocates the sanctity of marriage being that between a man and a woman.

Liberalism is the belief in total liberty and equality of an individual, while many conservative Muslims are opposed to religious pluralism because of fears it could lead to other religions being put on the same standing as Islam.

As Islam is the last revealed, and perfect religion for mankind the elevation of any other belief system to that of Islam is a supreme insult.  True Islamic countries would be violating the Qur'an and the hadiths of Muhammad if they did not follow the doctrinal requirements to make Islam above all others.

Minnesota jihad bank robber gets month trial delay for Ramadan

'Man in Black' bank robbery defendant gets monthlong Ramadan delay in hearing

Citing religious views, an accused bank robber known as "The Man in Black" asked a federal judge this week to postpone hearings until the end of Ramadan, a monthlong Muslim observance.

Mark Edward Wetsch was charged with holding up 13 Minnesota banks between March 2011 and January 2012. The robber earned his moniker by wearing all black during the heists, in which he made off with about $69,000.

Wetsch was scheduled to have a motion hearing Friday, July 20, in U.S. District Court in St. Paul but asked the judge to continue the hearing so he could observe the holy month of Ramadan, a period of daylight fasting, prayer and reflection. Ramadan began Friday and lasts 30 days.

After Magistrate Judge Jeanne Graham denied his initial request for a continuance, Wetsch argued that his meal and prayer requirements can be accommodated, but there are other elements of Ramadan to be observed as well.

"Mr. Wetsch describes two tenets that must also be adhered to during Ramadan: The faith calls for not engaging in conflict and argument; and to work to reconcile differences and seek peace," said Wetsch's motion, filed Thursday. "Clearly, a contested hearing in which the government is making allegations against Mr. Wetsch and he is fighting against causes him to engage in conflict and argument."

In other words the tenets of Islam, which specify that during Ramadan a Muslim cannot engage in conflict and must work to reconcile differences, are to be held in higher esteem than American civil law and procedure, and all to accommodate Islamic doctrine, aka sharia.  Got it.

Graham approved his renewed request. His next hearing has not yet been scheduled.

Asshats, the bunch of them.

Qur'ans used to smuggle drugs, no riots or explosions of outrage planned

Interesting turn this time.  In the past, a cartoon would cause riots and killing.  Alleged toilet-flushing of a Qur'an starts the destruction.  Inadvertent burning of Qur-ans in Afghanistan brings about pillaging and calls for death.  A pastor in America threatens to burn a Qur;an and the worlds Muslims get all snippy, yet in this case not a peep, no outrage of any kind by Muslims at Muslims who would dare desecrate the Holy Qur'an in such a way.

Selective outrage, folks. Remember this the next time Muslims take umbrage over something similar.

The drug was discovered in the vehicle of a mother of Moroccan family traveling with her ​​four children. The family had to deliver the drug in Spain on behalf of a family member residing also in the Iberian Peninsula.

The latter would have convinced him to import the drug and sell it in Spain, in order to overcome their financial problems. During questioning, the family said to be strongly affected by the crisis since 2008 in Spain, report the information site Nador City .

Fear and hesitation of the 25 year old son who was driving the car, became suspicious customs officials who ordered the search of the vehicle.

Ahmadinejad gloats over Israeli deaths in Bulgaria, intimates involvement

Iran controls Hezbollah which controls Lebanon.  Hezbollah is Iran's proxy in Islam's war against the West and Israel.  Iran will do whatever it sees as fit to advance Islamic interests both local and abroad.  More innocents will die and we will ignore the real reasons for the continued carnage.

Gloating Ahmadinejad hints at Iranian responsibility for Burgas terror attack
Iran’s President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad gloated publicly on Thursday over the deaths of Israelis in a terror bombing in Bulgaria, and hinted that Iran was responsible for the attack.

Speaking hours after Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had publicly blamed the bombing Wednesday at Bulgaria’s Burgas airport on “Hezbollah, directed by Iran,” Ahmadinejad described the attack as “a response” to Israeli “blows against Iran.”

“The bitter enemies of the Iranian people and the Islamic Revolution have recruited most of their forces in order to harm us,” he said in a speech reported by Israel’s Channel 2 TV. “They have indeed succeeded in inflicting blows upon us more than once, but have been rewarded with a far stronger response.”

He added: “The enemy believes it can achieve its aims in a long, persistent struggle against the Iranian people, but in the end it will not. We are working to ensure that.”

Ahmadinejad’s speech was interpreted in Israel as asserting that the Burgas bombing was a revenge attack for the killing of Iranian nuclear scientists, for which Iran has repeatedly blamed Israel.

His remarks contrasted with a condemnation of the Burgas bombing by the Iranian Foreign Ministry earlier Thursday.

“The Islamic republic, the biggest victim of terrorism, believes terrorism endangers the lives of innocents… is inhumane and so strongly condemns” it, the Arabic-language television channel Al-Alam cited foreign ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast as saying. “Iran’s position is to condemn all terrorist acts in the world,” he added.

Earlier in the day, Iran’s state TV rejected accusations of Tehran’s involvement in the attack.

A commentary on the TV website called the claims by Netanyahu and others “ridiculous” and “sensational.”

The website described the Israeli charges as attempts to discredit Iran and its allies such as Syria.

Tehran’s mission in Sofia issued a statement saying that “the unfounded statements by different statesmen of the Zionist regime in connection with the accusations against Iran about its possible participation in the incident with the blown-up bus with Israeli tourists in Burgas is a familiar method of the Zionist regime, with a political aim, and is a sign of the weakness … of the accusers.”

The bombing is the latest in a string of attacks and plots around the world that Israel has blamed on Iran.

Restrictions on breathing during Ramadan


From Emirates 24/7 July 21 by Mohammed al-Saddafy

Ask the scholar: Using asthma sprays during fasting in Ramadan
An asthma patient has asked whether the Shariah permits use of medical sprays during fasting in Ramadan.

According to the fatwa section of the Department of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities, if the asthma patient uses a medical spray during fasting, it may go from the nasal cavity to the throat which will make fasting invalid and make re-fasting for this day necessary.

If this happens, he has to continue to refrain from eating, drinking and smoking for the rest of the day to show respect for the holy month and people who are fasting.

If an asthma patient is cured of the ailment, he should re-fast the missed days. If he has not been completely cured, he should re-fast on days when he is not suffering from asthma.

If he is a life-long asthma patient, it is no sin if he could not re-fast the missing days because his mistake was not deliberate. But it will be a sin if he did not re-fast despite being able to later.

"Thousands of aliens, some of whom may very well pose a threat to this country, are taking flight lessons, being granted FAA certifications and are flying planes"

Yet those of us who point this out are called racist, Islamophobe or worse.  We are still very vulnerable to jihad in all its forms, there is no credible rational to believe that we are safer now than before 9-11.  Think of the printer cartridge bomb or the underwear bomb, both highly effective if the detonator had worked correctly.  If we, as the article intimates have given up on actually identifying our enemy because of that old bugaboo, PC then we are truly doomed.

We still fail to properly vet those wanting pilots licenses, the very same problem that led to the ease of the jihadists to commandeer a plane and crash it into the WTC and Pentagon on 9-11.

9/11 Flashback: US Flight Schools Still Unknowingly Training Terrorists?

More than a decade after the Sept. 11, 2001 terror attacks claimed the lives of nearly 3,000 Americans, some foreign flight students are still not subject to terror database screening until after they've completed pilot training, according to a new report from the government's watchdog.

"Thus, foreign nationals obtaining flight training with the intent to do harm, such as three of the pilots and leaders of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, could have already obtained the training needed to operate an aircraft before they received any type of vetting," says report, published today by the Government Accountability Office.

In the Sept. 11 attacks, 19 foreign nationals hijacked four commercial airliners and used the planes as weapons to hit the World Trade Center in New York and the Pentagon in the nation's capital. Several of the hijackers attended more than a dozen American flight schools in the weeks before the attacks to learn how to fly the jets.

After the attacks, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) established the Alien Flight Student Program (AFSP), which is designed to prevent flight schools regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration from "providing flight training to a foreign student unless the Secretary of Homeland Security first determines that the student does not pose a threat to aviation or national security."

But the new GAO report says that the AFSP database is woefully behind and some of the more than 25,000 foreign nationals who were in the FAA airmen registry were not found in the AFSP database, "indicating that these individuals had not applied to the AFSP or been vetted by the TSA before taking flight training and receiving an FAA airman certificate."

"It is disturbing to learn we could still be vulnerable to the same actions the 9/11 hijackers took over a decade ago," said Rep. Mike Rogers (R.-Alabama), chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee Subcommittee on Transportation Security.

New Islamic Community Center opens in Plymouth
PLYMOUTH, Minn. - Muslim families in the west metro suburbs now have a new place of worship.

They celebrated the grand opening of the NorthWest Islamic Community Center in Plymouth on Saturday.

Nausheena Hussain said, "It's really exciting to see the community come out and support it and it's not just for Muslims. There are a lot of neighbors here, a lot of our interfaith partners, so it's really, really just an exciting time for us."

Always worry when you hear the phrase interfaith dialogue/partners, bridge-building or multicultural tolerance.

Hussain felt Saturday's celebration was important because last year, she said, "we were fighting to get this establishment put up."

Despite some neighborhood opposition, the Plymouth City Council gave its approval to the center last August.

Mateen Ali, a Northwest Islamic Community Center board member said, "Overall the support was really great but there were a few people they did not understand what we were doing so we had to explain to them that we live here this is part of our community I live 3 miles from here I grew up here went to school here my kids go to school here so we needed a place of our own."

So now Plymouth has its own mosque in a former post office building at 3300 Plymouth Boulevard. The center will also have rooms available for rent to the community for those who may want to use the space.

(...)The Northwest Islamic Community Center is also leasing back some space to the post office so the branch can stay open.

Teenager shouts 'Allah is great' in Arabic as he tries to grab the Olympic flame from hands of terrified torch bearer

A 17-year-old shouted 'Allahu Akbar' - Arabic for 'God is Great' - as he unsuccessfully tried to grab the Olympic torch during a stretch of the flame's route through Maidstone towards Redhill.

Broadcast live on the BBC, the youth lunged from the crowd to try to take the torch from the hands of its bearer Anna Skora, but was swiftly bundled away by officers.

In one video posted to YouTube he can be seen waiting behind a car and as Ms Skora gets closer he lunges towards the torch.

Ms Skora was about to hand over the torch to Graham White, a Surrey charity worker, when the teenager burst out of the crowd and tried to grab it.

He managed to get through the line of police officers escorting the torch as it headed through the town.

One of the officers at the back of the group swiftly grabbed hold of Ms Skora and the torch, guiding them to the opposite side of the road.

Four or five of the other torch guards then bundled the man to the side of the road where he was then arrested.

Ms Skora managed to keep the torch upright throughout the ordeal and she continued to smile as she completed her stretch of the Olympic flame relay.

SION to Hold International Congress and Media Workshop to Address Islamic Supremacist War Against Free Speech

NEW YORK: The first session of the International Freedom Defense Congress, the operating body of the human rights organization Stop Islamization of Nations (SION), will be held in New York on September 11, 2012. The principal focus of the Congress will be a media workshop pertaining to Islamic supremacist attempts to restrict the freedom of speech in the free world, and the smear campaigns against freedom fighters in newspapers and media institutions in the West.

"The objective of this first-of-its-kind workshop is to develop media-related mechanisms to address the smear campaigns," SION said in a statement. It will also address the media's double standard regarding Islam and other religions, as epitomized in March 2012 by the New York Times' running of an anti-Catholic smear ad and rejection of a SION ad telling the truth about Islamic jihad.

It said the workshop will discuss at length the reasons behind and the results of the Western media's offensive campaigns against freedom of speech and the truth about Islam, jihad, Islamic supremacism and Muslims, which it added still occur from time to time.

"The workshop will represent a quantum leap in media action, as it discusses, beyond rhetoric, the practical steps to address the phenomenon of the Islamic war against free speech," SION President Pamela Geller said.

Freedom fighters from all over the globe, journalists, intellectuals and academicians will be among the participants in the workshop, which will consist of brainstorming sessions to develop mechanisms for cooperation with external partners, and to develop an action plan to address the phenomenon of the Islamic war against free speech.

The organisation noted that the workshop is of particular importance as it is the first ever to address the implications of Resolution 16/18 of the United Nations Human Rights Council, the stated goal of which is to "combat intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatisation of, discrimination, incitement to violence, and violence against persons based on religion or belief," but which is actually designed to restrict truthful speech about Islamic supremacism and jihad, so as to render the West mute and defenseless before the advancing threat of jihad and Sharia.

Resolution 16/18, which was adopted by the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva in March 2011, was backed by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the most recent Istanbul Process Conference in Washington in December.

This is widely viewed as a significant step toward furthering OIC efforts to destroy the freedom of speech and impose Sharia blasphemy laws on the free world.

"We are holding this Congress on the eleventh anniversary of the day jihad came to America in order to strike a blow for freedom," Geller said.

SION President Geller is the author of Stop Islamization of America: A Practical Guide to the Resistance (WND Books) and The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War On America (Simon & Schuster). SION Vice President is the acclaimed author and Islam expert, Robert Spencer, author of the New York Times bestsellers, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) and The Truth About Muhammad (both Regnery).

The SION Board of Advisers also includes Oskar Freysinger, a Swiss Parliamentarian and member of the Swiss People's Party (SVP), who won international renown for his leadership of the successful campaign against the construction of minarets in Switzerland; Cliff Kincaid, editor of Accuracy in Media (AIM) and a leader of the struggle to keep the jihadist propaganda network Al-Jazeera off American airwaves; Dr. Ashraf Rameleh, President of Voice of the Copts, an international organization standing up for the human rights of Coptic Christians and all religious minorities against religious bigotry and intolerance; Dr. Ali Sina, the renowned ex-Muslim author and founder of; Dr. Wafa Sultan, the ex-Muslim human rights activist and author; the German pro-freedom activist Stefan Herre of Politically Incorrect; the Israeli author Dr. Mordechai Kedar; the Hindu human rights activist Babu Suseelan; Anders Gravers of Stop Islamisation of Europe (SIOE); and Canadian publisher and free speech defender Ezra Levant.

Speakers at SION's International Freedom Defense Congress will include Kedar, Rameleh, Sina, Kincaid, and Gravers, as well as Danish free speech advocate Lars Hedegaard; Italian human rights activists Magdi Christiano Allam and Valentina Colombo; English politician and freedom fighter Paul Weston; and renowned Muhammad cartoonist Lars Vilks. More speakers will be announced shortly.

SION stands for:
-- The freedom of speech - as opposed to Islamic prohibitions of "blasphemy" and "slander," which are used effectively to quash honest discussion of jihad and Islamic supremacism;
-- The freedom of conscience - as opposed to the Islamic death penalty for apostasy;
-- The equality of rights of all people before the law - as opposed to Sharia's institutionalized discrimination against women and non-Muslims.

Hubris Alert: Families of jihadists killed in drone strikes sue feds for civil rights violations

Unbelievable.  During war, people die.  The enemy is trying to kill you, or has killed someone on your side, and thus your determination to kill them before they kill you.  Anwar al-Awalki and Samir Khan were both killed by American drone strikes in Yemen last year.  Both are culpable in the murder of Americans and other non-combatants and both men had declared their intent to keep killing until Islam reigns supreme.  Now their families are suing for violation of constitutional rights based in that both were American citizens, and should have been captured and tried in court instead of killed.

Boo freakin hoo.

Families of Americans killed by drones file suit

The families of three U.S. citizens killed in drone strikes in Yemen last year, including militant cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, filed a lawsuit Wednesday that accuses top CIA and U.S. military officials of violating the constitutional rights of those killed.

The lawsuit, which was prepared in part by the American Civil Liberties Union, represents the most direct legal challenge yet to the Obama administration’s decision to kill U.S. citizens in counter-terrorism operations without open due process measures or scrutiny from courts.

“These killings rely on vague legal standards, a closed executive process, and evidence never presented to the courts,” the suit alleges.

The suit stems from two drone strikes that took place over a six-week stretch last fall. The first, in September, killed Awlaki as well as alleged al-Qaeda propagandist Samir Khan. The second strike, in October, killed Awlaki’s 16-year-old son. All three were born in the United States.

Jameel Jaffer, deputy director of the ACLU, said the suit seeks compensation for the families, but is primarily aimed at forcing the Obama administration to disclose details about decisions that were made in secret.

In a war you don't telegraph your punch.  The ACLU wants us to send a memo before we press the button.  Cowards the lot of them.

“It’s an effort to get accountability,” Jaffer said. The administration has argued that requiring a court order in advance of strikes would cause delays and make the country more vulnerable to terrorist attack. Jaffer said the ACLU is “asking the government now, after the fact, to explain to a court why it did what it did.”

The defendants named in the suit include Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and CIA Director David H. Petraeus, as well as two of the top officers in the U.S. military special operations ranks: U.S. Navy Adm. William H. McRaven and U.S. Army Maj. Gen. Joseph Votel.

Bulgarian jihad attack; details but no explanation

We may never know the exact reasons why Mehdi Ghezali murdered Jews that day, except that it was a faith in Islam and a belief that murdering Jews will get him paradise and 72 virgins which did cause his rampage.  Any other explanation will fall short, and cloud the real issue; killing for the sake of his religion, because his religion tells him to do exactly what he did.

Bulgaria says suicide attacker in baseball cap, sneakers, shorts attacked Israeli tourist bus

BURGAS, Bulgaria — A lanky, long-haired man wearing a baseball cap and plaid shorts with a fake Michigan driver’s license carried out a deadly suicide attack on a bus full of Israeli vacationers, Bulgarian officials said Thursday.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed the attack on Iranian-backed Hezbollah, a Lebanese Shiite Muslim guerrilla group, and threatened retaliation. Seven people — five Israelis, the Bulgarian driver and the bomber — died in the blast Wednesday.

Although no group claimed responsibility, Israel has attributed a series of attacks on its citizens around the world in recent months to Iran and its Shiite proxies, threatening to escalate a shadow war between the two arch-enemies.

The attack occurred shortly after the Israelis boarded a bus outside the airport in the Black Sea resort town of Burgas, a popular destination for Israeli tourists — particularly for high school graduates before they are drafted into military service. Burgas is about 400 kilometers (250 miles) east of the capital, Sofia.

Bulgarian television aired security camera footage Thursday showing the suspected bomber wandering in and out of the terminal shortly before the blast. He was dressed as a tourist himself, wearing a baseball cap, T-shirt, plaid shorts and sneakers with short white socks. He carried a large backpack with wheels.

Suicide bomber blew up Bulgaria airport bus

BURGAS, Bulgaria (Reuters) - A suicide bomber carried out the attack that killed eight people in a bus transporting Israeli tourists in Bulgaria, the country's interior minister said on Thursday, and Israel accused Iranian-backed Hezbollah militants of responsibility.

Video surveillance in front of the airport and the investigation showed the bomber could not be distinguished among arriving Israeli tourists, Interior Minister Tsvetan Tsvetanov said at the airport of Burgas, on Bulgaria's Black Sea coast.

"We have established there was a person who was a suicide bomber in this attack (on Wednesday). This person had a fake driving license from the United States, from the state of Michigan," Tsvetanov told reporters.

"He looked like anyone else - a normal person with Bermuda shorts and a backpack," he said.

Special forces had managed to obtain DNA samples from the fingers of the bomber and were now checking databases in an attempt to identify him, Tsvetanov said. Bulgarian security services had received no indications of a pending attack.

Bulgarian press names bomber: Mehdi Ghezali

Bulgarian media on Thursday named the suicide bomber who blew up a bus full of Israeli tourists, killing five Israelis and a local bus driver, in the Black Sea resort of Burgas on Wednesday as 36-year-old Mehdi Ghezali.

Ghezali reportedly arrived in Bulgaria five weeks before the bombing and arrived at the airport via taxi, Channel 2 reported. He was also reportedly given the bomb by someone else, but no further details were provided.

There was no independent confirmation of the veracity of the information. The reports surfaced soon after Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had publicly accused Hezbollah, directed by Iran, of responsibility for the bombing. The Prime Minister’s Office made no comment on the reports.

The Bulgarian reports, rapidly picked up by Hebrew media, posited various versions of how the bomber had detonated the bomb, including the suggestion that the bomber had not intended to die in the blast, but may have wanted to place the bomb on the bus and flee.

Ghezali has a Wikipedia page, which describes him as a Swedish citizen, with Algerian and Finnish origins. He had been held at the US’s Guantanamo Bay detainment camp on Cuba from 2002 to 2004, having previously studied at a Muslim religious school and mosque in Britain, and traveled to Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan, it says. He was taken into custody on suspicion of being an al-Qaeda agent, having been arrested along with a number of other al-Qaeda operatives.

Officials Deny Bomber Was Guantanamo Detainee
U.S. and Swedish officials denied widespread reports that the suspected suicide bomber who blew up a bus of Israeli tourists in Bulgaria was an Islamic militant from Sweden who served two years at Guantanamo Bay.

The reports named the long-haired suspect as Mehdi Ghezali, a Swedish citizen, with Algerian and Finnish origins, the Times of Israel reported, quoting Bulgarian reports.

Ghezali, who was held at Guantanamo Bay from 2002 to 2004, once studied at a Muslim religious school and mosque in Britain, the paper said, and traveled to Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. Ghezali was held at the Guantanamo Bay detainment camp in Cuba, after he was captured in Pakistan for being an “unlawful combatant,” Haaretz said.

He was also reportedly arrested after trying to cross into Afghanistan in 2009, but was apparently later released.

MSNBC reported that U.S. officials denied that Ghezali was the bomber. Swedish officials also denied the link. Neither country has said if it knows the actual identity of the bomber.

Israeli PM Points to Iran in Deadly Bulgaria Blast

ABC News’ Richard Esposito, Alexander Marquardt, Lee Ferran and Dragana Jovanovic report: Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said he suspects Iran was behind a deadly explosion aboard a bus full of Israeli tourists in Bulgaria today.

“All the indications are that Iran is behind this deadly attack,” the Israeli leader said, just hours after six people were killed and more than 30 others injured in a fireball aboard a bus at an airport in the eastern Bulgarian city of Burgas.

Foreign intelligence sources told ABC News the Bulgarian government had months ago received a warning from Israel and Russia that an attack may be imminent and, in response, security was stepped up at the Israeli embassy in Bulgaria’s capital city of Sophia, more than 200 miles west of Burgas.

Investigators are trying to determine exactly how the bomb got on the bus in Burgas and have considered what one intelligence source told ABC News was a “remote possibility” it was slipped into a passenger’s luggage and carried through from the last flight from Tel Aviv, Israel. The victims on the bus are believed to be from that flight, which was made up of 154 passengers — all Israeli except for one American and two Europeans.

Terrorism: 2nd closing of US-Canada borders in 5 days
(AGI) Detroit - Last night, for the 2nd time in 5 days, the border between the US and Canada was temporarily closed.

Arguably the busiest of the long border between the two countries, the crossing between Detroit, Michigan and Windsor, Ontario was closed after a warning was received, indicating that there was a bomb on the Admiral Bridge. Five hours of searches with canine teams did not produce anything suspicious and the authorities reopened the crossing. Last Thursday a similar situation interested the nearby tunnel Detroit-Windsor.

Temple in Golden Triangle told to vacate
KUALA Lumpur City Hall (DBKL) has given the Sri Muniswarar Kaliyamman temple committee five days to vacate the premises to make way for a new development project, Malaysia Nanban reported.

Hindraf information chief S. Jayathas, representing the 30-man temple committee, urged the developer to incorporate the century-old Hindu temple in the project in Bukit Nanas instead of asking the temple to relocate.

“The temple, located in Jalan Tengah, off Jalan P. Ramlee, is sited on DBKL reserve land and is the only temple for Hindus within the Kuala Lumpur business zone, also known as the Golden Triangle,'' he said.

Jayathas added that the temple should be saved from demolition and given the land title.

South African jihad against Christians begins

The land of Nelson Mandella has changed.  Now, instead of apartheid against blacks we today see jihad against Christians.  Says a Bishop who remains nameless to protect his life from Islam, Al Qaeda affiliates operating undercover by Somalis pretending to be normal refugees… the motive appears to be to try and drive out Ethiopian (Christian) shop owners.”

Terror group targeting local Christians: Bishop
july 13 kenya somalia shabaab
The Italian restaurant called, they want their table-cloths back

Elite cops are investigating claims that terror group al-Shabaab is behind the murders of 14 Christians in the Western Cape.

The killings occurred within a 10-month period across the province, from Mossel Bay to Philippi, Macassar and Paarl.

All of the victims were Ethiopian Christians living here and the murders were initially thought to be random xenophobic attacks on foreigners.

The latest of these is a shop owner who was gunned down in Philippi last Friday.

But police are now investigating new evidence that the killings have been carried out by Somalia-based Al-Shabaab.

It is the first time there has been any suggestion that Al-Shabaab – which has links to Al-Qaeda – is operating in South Africa.

Authorities were made aware of the link to the Cape killings when a Christian bishop, also a former police inspector, noticed a distinct pattern in the murders.

The bishop – who does not want to be identified out of fear that he may be targeted – has sent three letters to President Jacob Zuma highlighting his concerns.

In one letter – seen by the Daily Voice – the bishop states: “Since September, seven of my Ethiopian Community have been shot, of which two have died and five seriously wounded… these are in fact acts of members of Al-Shabaab.

“Al Qaeda affiliates operating undercover by Somalis pretending to be normal refugees… the motive appears to be to try and drive out Ethiopian shop owners.”

A response from the President Jacob Zuma’s office addressed to the bishop advised him to take his findings to the “private secretary to the Minister of Police… the department placed to engage with you”.

In an interview with the Daily Voice, the bishop reveals he is currently in close contact with a special task force intelligence officer who has been assigned to the case.

The bishop – who is the head of a 4 000-strong congregation – fears more of his flock will be targeted by the terrorists.

“We want authorities to do something because we know this is the work of al-Shabaab,” he says.

If nothing is done, the Ethiopian population will be depleted."

Of course it will be depleted, that is one way Islam can gain control of lands that up to then did not belong to them.  Get rid of the locals and then step in with a solution.  A final solution, if you will to the problem of non-Muslims who are in the way.
