Jihadists in China

As horrible as the communist Chinese regime is, I do agree with the way they handle islamic terrorism within their own borders, which is to execute the savages. China is not hobbled by lawyers and judges and civil libertarian groups. The country has been having much trouble with jihadists who want to form a separate islamic state within China and also support a global islamic caliphate. They are ethnic Uighurs who reside in the province of Xinjiang. Recently, Muslims in the Kunming region of China bombed several buses and now the muslim separatists are threatening to attack the olympic games. China plans a huge crackdown. Everywhere there is a significant muslim population, mayhem and bloodshed follows.

Islam in Action has more.

Obama's Ego Trip

The hubris of this guy never ceases to amaze me. A man so completely full of himself that he now believes that he is what the world has been waiting for. I really want him to not only lose the election, but lose in a huge landslide and go back into obscurity. That would really cut him down to size and deflate that enormous ego of his.

This is the moment. . . that the world is waiting for. . . I have become a symbol of the possibility of America returning to our best traditions. Barack Obama, in a closed-door address to his followers in the United States Congress, July 29, 2008.

Olmert to Resign

PM Olmert has announced his intention to resign in September due to all the corruption investigations going on against him. Of course he denies any wrongdoing and blames those he claims are out to get him. Let's hope this marks the end of the faux "peace" process or what should properly be called the west's attempt to force Israel to surrender territory in the name of appeasing radical islam.

JERUSALEM - Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced Wednesday he will resign in September, throwing his country into political turmoil and raising doubts about progress for U.S.-backed Mideast peace efforts.



Olmert's brief address, given at his official Jerusalem residence, included harsh criticism of corruption investigations against him. He said he was choosing the public good over his personal justice. He has consistently denied wrongdoing but pledged to resign if indicted.

Appearing angry and reading from a prepared text, Olmert said, "I was forced to defend myself against relentless attacks from self-appointed 'fighters for justice' who sought to depose me from my position, when the ends sanctified all the means."

Olmert, whose term was to end in 2010, said he would not run in his party's primary election, set for Sept. 17, and would step down afterward "in order to allow the chairman to be elected and form a different government quickly and efficiently." He did not answer questions from reporters.

Olmert's popularity dropped below 20 percent at one point after his bloody but inconclusive war in Lebanon in 2006, and a string of corruption allegations and police interrogations have battered him in recent months. Political analysts here have predicted his resignation for weeks.

In Washington, the State Department said Olmert's eventual departure from his post would not affect U.S. efforts to broker some kind of peace agreement with the Palestinians by the end of the year.

"The Israelis will work out their own politics," spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters. "We are going to look forward to working with all responsible Israeli leaders in the government, whether it is this government or some future government. I'm just not going to comment on their politics."

Fatah vs Hamas

To those morally repugnant cowards in the west who falsely believe throwing Israel to the wolves will be enough to pacify radical islam and therefore bring about stability in the Middle East and thus make the west safer, consider that when the jihadists aren't targeting Israel they are fighting each other as hamas and fatah are currently doing. They do so because hatred and violence is in their blood, because tribalism is the basis of Arab-islamic culture and jihad is what their religion indoctrinates them to carry out.

It is good news indeed that fatah and hamas are at each other's throats. A great way to thin the herd without risking the lives of Israelis. Israel did however use the opportunity to arrest a senior hamas terror leader in Hebron.

To those who support the creation of a palestinian state, just how is it that creating another terror state in the Middle East benefits anyone except jihadists? Exactly what have these people done to show they are worthy of statehood? After Israel withdrew from Gaza, the first thing they did was loot and destroy the greenhouses which Jews left and which they could have used as a basis for their economy. Instead of beginning to build the institutions of a viable state, they elected hamas who then subsequently used those former productive Jewish neighborhoods to launch missiles at the western Negev. There has been nothing but chaos since the surrender of Gaza because the so-called palestinians have never really been interested in statehood, the only goal they have ever had in life is to destroy the Jewish state.

Although I welcome a civil war between hamas and fatah, it is tragic however that a little girl was killed at a Gaza beach cafe as the result of a bombing. These barbarians can't even allow anyone a peaceful day at the beach without bombs and guns going off in every direction. Yet we will not hear any sort of UN condemnation or special session.

Gunfights and mass-arrests swept the Palestinian territories over the weekend in the aftermath of a deadly bomb attack on Gaza’s Hamas rulers, which the Islamists blamed on their western-backed rival Fatah.

A major Hamas security sweep in Gaza, in which hundreds of Fatah members were rounded up for interrogation and the movement’s offices shut down, triggered fighting involving another group, the Army of Islam, a radical, smaller movement with previous links to both factions and which kidnapped Alan Johnston, the BBC journalist.

In the middle of the internal fighting, Israeli forces simultaneously launched a raid to arrest a senior Hamas fugitive in the southern West Bank city of Hebron, killing the man when he opened fire on the raiding party.

The violence erupted on Friday evening when a bomb exploded at a Gaza beach café, killing five high-ranking Hamas officials and a five-year-old girl. Hamas quickly accused Fatah, which it has blamed for several bombings and assassination attempts since the secular group lost control of Gaza to the Islamists in battle last summer.

Hamas police flooded the streets and conducted a number of raids, arresting around 200 people linked to Fatah, whose leader, Mahmoud Abbas, is the Palestinian President.

Hamas gunmen also shut down scores of Fatah-run sports and cultural clubs, as well as the regional Fatah headquarters offices in the coastal strip’s towns. The security forces confiscated computers and documents as part of the crackdown

In response, Fatah – now in nominal control only of the West Bank, which is still occupied by the Israeli military – carried out a series of tit-for-tat arrests in northern West Bank towns of Jenin and Tulkarem, detaining 35 Islamists.

Hamas’ wide-ranging security crackdown in Gaza also sparked armed clashes with the Army of Islam, a group which claims to have links to al-Qaeda. The small movement, headed by Mumtaz Doghmush, helped Hamas capture Gilad Shalit, an Israeli soldier, in a cross-border raid two years ago before running foul of Gaza’s new rulers over its three-month detention of Mr Johnston.

The Army of Islam is based in a cramped area of southern Gaza City dominated by the powerful and fiercely territorial Doghmush clan, with whom Hamas has had run-ins in the past over smuggling operations. Hamas policemen fought gun battles with clansmen and militia members for hours, at one point having to extricate a group of its policemen who were pinned down by Doghmush snipers. At least three people were wounded in the all-night clashes.

Following the infighting, Israeli forces stepped into the complex melee this morning with a raid to nab the senior Hamas militant, Shihab al-Natsheh, whom Israel accused of masterminding a suicide bombing in the southern Israeli town of Dimona in February, killing an elderly Israeli woman.

Israeli troops killed the 25-year Hamas bomb-maker in Hebron after he reportedly opened fire on them. Hamas, which has been observing a fragile truce with Israel to halt rocket-fire from Gaza, promised to hit back for Mr al-Natsheh’s killing.

"Our response will be swift and painful," said the group’s armed wing in a statement.

The Moral Decline of the Democrats

I wasn't exaggerating when I declared that having nominated Barack Hussein Obama as their presidential candidate, the democratic party has officially become a party represented by the likes of Jeremiah Wright, Louis Farrakan, and the ideology of the nation of islam, black liberation theology, black supremacy and marxism. As an example of just how far the democratic party has degenerated into radical anti-Americanism, anti-white hatred and antisemitism, Leah Daughtry, a marxist and the daughter of the Rev. Herbert Daughtry, is the CEO of the Democratic National Convention. Herbert Daughtry himself is a radical black preacher who espouses black liberation theology. It should become quite clear that radical anti-American elements have completely taken control of the Democratic party, while its traditional base and any semblence of moderation is being shoved out and seen as unwelcome. It also should be quite clear that Obama himself indeed supports the views of his pastor and church. At this point I don't see how any decent American can vote for the Democrats. We must spread the word about what the Democratic party currently represents and do everything in our power to see John McCain elected.

Should an American Criticize the Israeli Government?

Daniel Pipes defends his right to criticize the Israeli government after being condemned by Yoram Schweitzer, who suggested that because Pipes is not an Israeli he had no right to his opinion on the Israeli government's decision to exchange kuntar for the bodies of Goldwasser and Regev. Schweitzer argues that it was not a bad deal.

May I, an American citizen living in the United States, comment publicly on Israeli decision making?

I recently criticized the Israeli government for its exchange with Hizbullah in “Samir Kuntar and the Last Laugh” (The Jerusalem Post, July 21); to this, the eminent counterterrorism expert at Tel Aviv University, Yoram Schweitzer challenged the appropriateness of my offering views on this subject. In “Not That Bad a Deal” (July 24) he explained to Jerusalem Post readers how the “contents and tone” of my analysis are “patronizing and insulting, overlooking as they do the fact that the government and public have the right to decide for themselves …, and to shoulder the resulting price.” He also criticizes me for offering an opinion on Israeli issues from my “secure haven thousands of miles away.”

Ultimately yes of course, Israelis make policy decisions for their own country. No one is arguing that. But there is no reason why anyone can’t question those decisions. I just wish people like Yoram Schweitzer would get worked up over leftist enemies of Israel who accuse it of being an apartheid state and of ethnic cleansing as well as foreign ISM members entering Israel and physically interefering with security measures and aiding and abetting terrorists. Perhaps he would do well to tell them as well as the EU and UN to stop interfering in Israel’s internal affairs. Instead he gets in a huff over a friend of Israel, who has Israel’s best interests at heart, dispensing advise.

Schweitzer does not spell out the logic behind his resentment, but it rings familiar: Unless a person lives in Israel, the argument goes, pays its taxes, puts himself at risk in its streets, and has children in its armed forces, he should not second-guess Israeli decisionmaking. This approach, broadly speaking, stands behind the positions taken by the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and other prominent Jewish institutions.

I respect that position without accepting its discipline. Responding to what foreign governments do is my meat and potatoes as a U.S. foreign policy analyst who spent time in the State and Defense departments and as a board member of the U.S. Institute of Peace, and who as a columnist has for nearly a decade unburdened himself of opinions. A quick bibliographic review finds me judging many governments, including the British, Canadian, Danish, French, German, Iranian, Nepalese, Saudi, South Korean, Syrian, and Turkish.

Obama's Hubris


This narcissist and megalomaniac has his name and "change" slogan on the plane he flies around in rather than the American flag.

The Danger of Muslims in the West

How many times do we need to keep being reminded why western countries need to stop allowing muslim "students" to enroll in our universities and also why muslim immigration to the west needs to end completely. A new poll reveals that nearly 1/3 of muslim "students" in Britain believe that killing in the name of islam is justified and that 40% support instituting sharia law in Britain. The poll also revealed that 40% of muslim students believe it is unacceptable for men and women to associate freely, 25% of muslim students overall and 32% of male muslim students are anti-gay. And 1/3 support the creation of a worldwide caliphate. Although the islamist apologist Union of Students attributed the outcome of the poll results to rightwingers asking misleading questions, the poll in fact coincides with previous surveys of muslims in Britain. It is simply mindboggling that so many western countries are facilitating their own cultural and even physical destruction. Why allow in millions of people who's cultural values are the antithesis of our own and which threaten to completely transform our societies from enlightenment values into barbaric seventh century societies?

ALMOST a third of British Muslim students believe killing in the name of Islam can be justified, according to a poll.

The study also found that two in five Muslims at university support the incorporation of Islamic sharia codes into British law.

The YouGov poll for the Centre for Social Cohesion (CSC) will raise concerns about the extent of campus radicalism. “Significant numbers appear to hold beliefs which contravene democratic values,” said Han-nah Stuart, one of the report’s authors. “These results are deeply embarrassing for those who have said there is no extremism in British universities.”

The report was criticised by the country’s largest Muslim student body, Fosis, but Anthony Glees, professor of security and intelligence studies at Buckingham University, said: “The finding that a large number of students think it is okay to kill in the name of religion is alarming.

“There is a wide cultural divide between Muslim and nonMuslim students. The solution is to stop talking about celebrating diversity and focus on integration and assimilation.”

The solution is for mass deportations. These people don't want to assimilate.

The researchers found that 55% of nonMuslim students thought Islam was incompatible with democracy. Nearly one in 10 had “little respect” for Muslims.

In addition to its poll of 1,400 Muslim and nonMuslim students, the centre visited more than 20 universities to interview students and listen to guest speakers. It found that extremist preachers regularly gave speeches that were inflammatory, homophobic or bordering on antisemitic.

The researchers highlighted Queen Mary college, part of London University, as a campus where radical views were widely held. Last December, a speaker named Abu Mujahid encouraged Muslim students to condemn gays because “Allah hates” homosexuality. In November, Azzam Tamimi, a British-based supporter of Hamas, described Israel as the most “inhumane project in the modern history of humanity”.

James Brandon, deputy director at CSC , said: “Our researchers found a ghettoised mentality among Muslim students at Queen Mary. Also, we found the segregation between Muslim men and women at events more visible at Queen Mary.”

Islam's Violent Misogyny

Phyllis Chesler describes her life married to an Afghan muslim man and living in Afghanistan and how it opened her eyes to the misogyny and barbarity of islam. To be a wife of a muslim man is a life of imprisonment and slavery and physical and emotional abuse. In fact even before they become wives, life for muslim girls is just as horrible, such as being forced to undergo genital mutilation. It would be great if the tables can be turned and muslim males would be forced to undergo castrations. Of course back when Phyllis Chesler married her Afghan husband, western women at the time were not privy to the reality of islam. So she can be excused for her naivete. However any western woman in this day and age who would marry a muslim has got to have a screw loose. She would really have to have low self-esteem. It is mindboggling why a free western woman nowadays, would voluntarily subject themselves to such a life as the wife of a muslim man and living in an islamic country at that.

Although speaking from her own experience as having lived the life of the wife of a muslim, nevertheless, western leftist intelligencia, including ironically feminists, have absurdly condemned Chesler as islamophobic and racist for telling the unvarnished truth about islam which is that it is islam and not Israel, which is the world's largest practitioner of sexual and religious apartheid in the world. So we have a bizarre situation in which those who call themselves "progressive", defend the most backward, reactionary and fascist civilization on Earth, brutalizing and oppressing women and executing homosexuals. And yet these same mentally deranged "progressives" demonize people like Phillis Chesler, who defend freedom and human rights, the rights of women, gays etc. as the ones who are fascists. How twisted are the minds of these leftists who should be defending western civilization since it protects the very ideals they claim to represent.

Once I was held captive in Kabul. I was the bride of a charming, seductive and Westernized Afghan Muslim whom I met at an American college. The purdah I experienced was relatively posh but the sequestered all-female life was not my cup of chai -- nor was the male hostility to veiled, partly veiled and unveiled women in public.

When we landed in Kabul, an airport official smoothly confiscated my US passport. "Don't worry, it's just a formality," my husband assured me. I never saw that passport again. I later learnt that this was routinely done to foreign wives -- perhaps to make it impossible for them to leave. Overnight, my husband became a stranger. The man with whom I had discussed Camus, Dostoevsky, Tennessee Williams and the Italian cinema became a stranger. He treated me the same way his father and elder brother treated their wives: distantly, with a hint of disdain and embarrassment.

In our two years together, my future husband had never once mentioned that his father had three wives and 21 children. Nor did he tell me that I would be expected to live as if I had been reared as an Afghan woman. I was supposed to lead a largely indoor life among women, to go out only with a male escort and to spend my days waiting for my husband to return or visiting female relatives, or having new (and very fashionable) clothes made.

In America, my husband was proud that I was a natural-born rebel and free thinker. In Afghanistan, my criticism of the treatment of women and of the poor rendered him suspect, vulnerable. He mocked my horrified reactions. But I knew what my eyes and ears told me. I saw how poor women in chadaris were forced to sit at the back of the bus and had to keep yielding their place on line in the bazaar to any man.

I saw how polygamous, arranged marriages and child brides led to chronic female suffering and to rivalry between co-wives and half-brothers; how the subordination and sequestration of women led to a profound estrangement between the sexes -- one that led to wife-beating, marital rape and to a rampant but hotly denied male "prison"-like homosexuality and pederasty; how frustrated, neglected and uneducated women tormented their daughter-in-laws and female servants; how women were not allowed to pray in mosques or visit male doctors (their husbands described the symptoms in their absence).

Individual Afghans were enchantingly courteous -- but the Afghanistan I knew was a bastion of illiteracy, poverty, treachery and preventable diseases. It was also a police state, a feudal monarchy and a theocracy, rank with fear and paranoia. Afghanistan had never been colonized. My relatives said: "Not even the British could occupy us." Thus I was forced to conclude that Afghan barbarism was of their own making and could not be attributed to Western imperialism.

This Week's Haveil Havalim

Edition #175 of the Jewish blog carnival Haveil Havalim is featured this week at Frume Sarah.

Muslim Savages Mutilate Woman

Misogynist muslim savages cut the breasts off of some poor non-muslim Sudanese woman. How can anyone still doubt that islam is a blight on the Earth, and the most violent, evil, bloodthirsty, misogynist, hateful religion in the history of the world? These jihadists need to be fought and destroyed everywhere in the world they menace. Islam does nothing but cause misery, bloodshed and horror wherever it rears its ugly head.

Israeli Technology Helps Paraplegics Walk

The Israelis continue to achieve medical breakthroughs as well as other scientific and technological breakthroughs and contribute to the betterment of the world all the while being constantly under threat. Meanwhile the only innovation her enemies have achieved is to come up with new ways to mass murder. Whether its suicide bombings or bulldozer rampages. The latest Israeli developed medical technological breakthrough is a quasi-robotic system to enable paraplegics to walk. You would think the world community would have more respect and appreciation for Israel's contributions rather than so often treat it as a pariah state.

An Israeli company has developed a revolutionary quasi-robotic system that will enable wheelchair users to walk again.

Argo Medical Technologies' wearable upright mobility system, or "exoskeleton," was specially designed for individuals with lower-limb disabilities, according to Los Angeles-based Israeli news Web site ISRAEL21c.



In a clip the company posted on the video-sharing Web site YouTube, a man described as having been confined to a wheelchair for over 20 years is shown walking, descending stairs and even driving a car.

Dr. Amit Goffer PhD, founder and director of Argo, and ReWalk's developer, explained the project's goal to ISRAEL21c.

"What we want to do is have the person wake up in the morning, put on clothes, put on the ReWalk, go to work and go throughout the day, wearing it," Goffer said.

Obama Snubs Troops

Barack Hussein Obama cancelled a visit to Rammstein and Landstuhl US military bases where he was to visit with wounded American soldiers. Yet the worthless egomaniac made sure he had time to make a speech in front of thousands of Germans in order to make it appear as though he is wildly popular. But actually the 200,000 most likely attended the event because popular musical acts were performing. But if the Germans really do like him that much then let obama be their leader. This is the same crap the Obama campaign pulled a few months ago in Oregon. They had him make a speech at an event where a free concert was given by a popular band who I forgot the name of. So while the media reported hussein as having attracted 70,000 people, they were actually there to attend the free concert. So they pulled the same trick in Germany, having obama scheduled to speak with popular bands on the same bill to make it appear obama attracted 200,000 people. This is all part of the illusion his campaign has created to inflate his popularity. And from what I hear he is scheduled to give his acceptance speech at a stadium in Denver rather than at the venue the democratic national convention is being held. This guy is a megalomaniac akin to history's worst dictators and tyrants. Anyway its better he did not visit the soldiers, since he is not worthy. Just like everywhere else on this trip, he only would have been using them for photo-ops and to shore up his credentials in military matters. He is not fit to be in the presence of real American heroes. And he is certainly not fit to be their commander in chief.

Obama Pads His Resume

The man with the inflated ego is strutting around the world, pretending as though he is already president. Yet he is nothing more than a hack from Chicago who no one heard of four years ago but who rose to national prominence thanks to the scoundrels at the DNC who made him the keynote speaker at their 2004 convention and set the stage for him to be their next presidential nominee regardless of his lack of experience. He is nothing more than a media creation and it makes me sick to see this egomaniac trying to play at being president, having meetings with foreign leaders as though he is actually important and as though he actually has any knowledge of foreign affairs. I wish they would have ignored him like the non-entity he truly is, that would certainly cut him down to size. We have the sychophantic, fawning media to blame for foisting this punk on us and now we have to be subjected to his nauseating display of self-importance. His candidacy is a fluke which never should have happened and hopefully come November he will fade into the dustbin of history. But to ensure that happens, he must lose in a landslide so he never gets another chance to run for president.

The man is a total fraud and his campaign a charade. Here is the megalomaniac lying about being on the Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs Committee during a speech in Sderot and yet the media remains silent as he consistently lies:

First of all, I didn't change my statement.

I continued to say that Jerusalem will be the capital of Israel. And I have said that before and I will say it again. And I also have said that it is important that we don't simply slice the city in half. But I've also said that that's a final status issue. That's an issue that has to be dealt with with the parties involved, the Palestinians and the Israelis. And it's not the job of the United States to dictate the form in which that will take, but rather to support the efforts that are being made right now to resolve these very difficult issues that have a long history.

Now, in terms of knowing my commitments, you don't have to just look at my words, you can look at my deeds. Just this past week, we passed out of the U.S. Senate Banking Committee, which is my committee, a bill to call for divestment from Iran, as a way of ratcheting up the pressure to ensure that they don't obtain a nuclear weapon.

Kuntar Vows to Murder More Israelis

If your stomach can handle it, you can watch this disgusting video clip of al jazeera's birthday bash for child-killing mutant samir kuntar, complete with a cake cutting ceremony, sparklers and a band. Israel is somehow expected to make peace with a depraved people who lionize baby killers as heroes and role models. Why does Lebanon receive western backing and U.S. taxpayer dollars when it is just another terror supporting nation which celebrated the release of kuntar? And likewise PA leader abbas, also falsely considered a "moderate" by the west, also receives U.S. taxpayer dollars and he too praised kuntar. Don't try and tell me there is such a thing as moderate muslims, there is not a single decent islamic nation.

In a related story, here are excerpts from various tv interviews conducted with kuntar who vows to slaughter more Israelis:

Al-Manar TV, July 16, 2008

Samir Al-Quntar: "The weapon of a position that has been turned into a culture builds the homeland of the resistance. It has become the culture of the generations that will realize the dream of annihilating that plundering entity. Allow me to commemorate a great legendary commander, the martyred hero and mujahid 'Imad Mughniya. I would like to say just one thing: Hajj 'Imad, we will only be worthy of the blood you sacrificed when we force this enemy to long for your times." [...]


Al-Manar TV, July 17, 2008

Samir Al-Quntar: "At this time yesterday, I was in the hands of the enemies. This time yesterday, I was still in their hands. But right now, there is nothing I'd like more than to face them again. I ask Allah to make this happen very soon. Whoever thinks that the liberation of the Shaba' Farms of the Lebanese lands can bring an end to this conflict is deluded. Take my word for it. Even if we let them be, they will not let us be." [...]


Al-Jadid TV, July 18, 2008

Samir Al-Quntar: "There is a disease in this region called 'the state of Israel,' which we refer to as 'the plundering entity.' If we do not put an end to this disease, it will follow us, even if we flee to the end of the world. So it's better to get rid of it." [...]


Al-Manar TV, July 17, 2008

Samir Al-Quntar: "If we consider the history of the conflict... When you read books written by the Zionists about the wars of 1967, 1948, and 1973, you feel that no value was attributed to the lives of the Arabs. Arab soldiers would fall, others would go missing in action... There was a kind of disdain for their lives. This was evident in the lack of seriousness in dealing with cases of Egyptians, Lebanese, and others who went missing in action in the conflict with the plundering entity.

"Hizbullah, however, has been searching for missing people - martyred or alive. They had no reason to carry out a capturing operation for my sake other than their belief in the value of human life. I remember that Secretary-General [Nasrallah] once said: 'If Samir Al-Quntar is in prison, it means Lebanon in its entirety is in prison.' This reflects the value of human life...

"Today, everybody talks about human rights, democracy, and modern development... Human rights begin here - in caring for the individual in society. The individual is everything. To be honest, we used to envy our enemy - how it would go to the end of the world in order to retrieve a body, and how it was ready to go all the way to free one of its captured soldiers. Today, Allah be praised, we have the resistance, which retrieves the bodies of the martyrs, and every single prisoner. It does not leave prisoners in jail or bodies in the hands of the enemies." [...]


Al-Jadid TV, July 21, 2008

Sheikh 'Atallah Hamoud, head of the Lebanese Society for Prisoners and Released Prisoners: "This is a gift from the Islamic resistance to the liberated hero, Lt.-Col. Samir Al-Quntar. Mujahideen like Samir Al-Quntar and his brothers do not care about themselves, because they have dedicated themselves to the resistance, the cause, and the homeland."

Narrator: "The special gift from the resistance merged with the words of Al-Quntar, who vowed that his gun would play a role in avenging the blood of the martyrs."

Samir Al-Quntar: "This is the most beautiful gift, except for freedom itself. I'd like to salute the Islamic resistance and Secretary-General Nasrallah for their trust. First, this is the Islamic resistance's way of reaffirming their faith in me as a fighter. Second, this gun will play a role, Allah willing, in avenging the blood of 'Imad Mughaniya." [...]


Future TV, July 22, 2008

Samir Al-Quntar: "If you are asking whether I killed Israelis - I did, Allah be praised."

Interviewer: "Including children?"

Samir Al-Quntar: "No. I am proud of this, and Allah willing, I will get the chance to kill more Israelis. As for the children, that's another story. A girl was killed during the operation, in the crossfire. In all the operations that involved capturing Israeli hostages, the hostages were killed by the bullets of the Israeli forces. In the operation of Dalal Al-Maghrabi, the [Israelis] fired like crazy on the bus, and killed a large number of Jewish hostages. In the Ma'alot operation, hostages were taken at a high school. [The Israelis] used anti-tank missiles to storm the school, killing many. The same thing happened in my operation. When we fired at them, in response to their fire, they began shooting in our direction like crazy. They are the ones who killed the hostages."

Obama and Race-Baiting

The extreme left-wing and antisemitic organization Moveon.org has accused Fox news of being racist over its coverage of Barack Hussein Obama.

PETITION AGAINST FOX’S RACIST & HATE-FILLED SMEARS: “FOX must stop injecting racism, prejudice, and fear into our political dialogue. We intend to hold FOX, its advertisers, and its personalities accountable for FOX’s attempts to smear the Obamas.”

These are the type of tactics, accusing one of being a racist, the obama campaign and his sychophantic followers have repeatedly used against his opponents in order to attempt to silence any criticism of their cult leader. Meanwhile as they falsely accuse obama critics of racism, they demand we overlook obama’s very real racist ties to wright and TUCC. Hat tip Israpundit

Obama in the Middle East

Atlas Shrugs has videos of Obama stammering and stuttering and morally equivocating as he speaks in Israel:

"Let me be absolutely clear. Israel is a strong friend of Israel's. It will be a strong friend of Israel's under a McCain government uh uh ...administration. It will be a strong friend of Israel under an Obama administration (Video part III and notice how hostile he is when that video kicks off)

"it is gonna be very difficult for Israel to ever be secure if you don't have some sense of opportunity, prosperity and security with its neighbors" [the billions the US, the EU and Israel was a mere drop in the bucket of blood]...... everyone is going to have responsibilities and obligations in this process. Sometimes I think there is a tendency for each side to focus on the faults of the other instead of looking in the mirror and seeing what can be done to improve the situation"


And here is a transcript from Rush Limbaugh's show:

RUSH: Grab audio sound bite number 26 first, Mike. I didn't know we'd get to this this early. I asked Cookie to put together a little montage here of all the stuttering around that Obama did in his press conference today and I want you to hear this because -- and we didn't repeat anything here. It goes 46 seconds, and we're doing this because we hear constantly, "What a great orator and a great communicator! Ohhhh, this man is smooth!" Just listen. This is a great illustration here of what happened when you take the teleprompter and your prepared remarks away from the dude.

OBAMA: Uh, uh, are, uh, uh, uh, um. That's -- that's a bunch -- so -- so let me tick these off. Deh... Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, um, uh. So the issue is not a perception that, uh... Weh, weh, let me put it this way. Uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, uh, We're -- we're trying to -- you know, we've got a bipartisan group here and -- and -- and, uh, uh, uh, uh, um, uh, uh, uh.

So this is a man who is praised for his smooth oratory skills yet without a written speech, he is incapable of articulating a point of view and he is shown to have no basic knowledge of major issues. Obama would be an absolute disaster when it comes to foreign affairs.

And speaking in Jordan he advises Israel to put terrorism in context:

Washington, D.C. (July 22, 2008) -- The Republican Jewish Coalition (RJC) issued the following statement today:

"Senator Obama in Jordan today said that terrorism makes 'Israelis want to dig in and simply think about their own security regardless of what's going on beyond their borders.' What Senator Obama fails to recognize is that the safety and security of its citizenry is the primary obligation of a country's leadership.In essence, Senator Obama is asking Israelis and the American Jewish community to put terrorism in context. Senator Obama continues his rhetoric of moral equivalence by implying that measures taken by Israel to protect its citizens are on par with the Palestinians' frustration at border checkpoints. Senator Obama's attempt at even-handed diplomacy fails to hold Palestinians accountable for using terrorist tactics against innocent Israeli citizens as a means to achieve their ends."

What a prick. In other words, Israelis should stop defending themselves, should be willing to allow themselves to be targeted so that supposedly the muslim savages bloodthirsty tendencies will be satiated and will leave the rest of the world alone.

And yet when speaking to Israelis he attempts to express empathy with Israelis and sound tough on terrorism:

"I can assure you," he said, speaking at the local police station against a backdrop of Kassam rockets, "if someone was sending rockets into my house where my two daughters sleep at night, I'm going to do everything in my power to stop that, and I would expect Israelis to do the same thing."


"We don't want a peace deal just to have a piece of paper that doesn't result in peace. We need something that is meaningful, and it is not going to be meaningful if Israel's security is not part of that package."


Obama took a tough stand against Iran, saying he would use "big carrots and big sticks" in dealing with the regime, and that while he wanted to pursue the diplomatic track, "I would take no options off the table."

"Understand part of my reasoning here," he said. "A nuclear Iran will be a game-changing situation, not just in the Middle East but around the world."

The senator said a nuclear Iran would lead to the disintegration of the non-proliferation framework, and a nuclear arms race throughout the Middle East.

"Many of these countries, including Iran, have ties to terrorist organizations, and suddenly you could have lost nuclear materials falling into the hands of terrorists, " he said, defining that as a threat not only to Israel, but also to the US.


Obama said, "I'll never compromise Israel's security. Terrorism is not theoretical, it's right here a block away from this hotel, and it must be fought with full force and strength."

Yet another example of Obama tailoring his rhetoric to suit the audience he is speaking to. Who really knows what he truly believes or what policies he would carry out as president.

Islamic Prayer Forced Upon Airline Travelers

This is a video which shows an EgyptAir flight where islamic prayer is imposed upon all of its passengers, even non-islamic ones. This particular flight was taking off from JFK airport where many non-muslim Americans were on board. Why would any American want to subject themselves to the risk of traveling on an islamic airline?

Al Jazeera Held a Party for Kuntar

Israel has decided to impose sanctions on al jazeera because the pro-jihadi terrorist tv station held a party in honor of that baby killing monster samir kuntar. During celebrations, kuntar gestured with the nazi salute. It would have been nice had Israel launched a missile or two at the celebrations.

For the second time this year, Israel has decided to act against Al-Jazeera, after the influential TV station held a party for released Lebanese child-killer Samir Kuntar, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

The party, held in Beirut, was organized by the Al-Jazeera bureau there to honor Kuntar on the occasion of his release from Israeli prison. He was hailed as a hero who carried out a brave military operation against the Jewish state.

The Government Press Office said it would impose sanctions on Al-Jazeera and demand an explanation from the station.

Al-Jazeera's bureau chief in Beirut, Ghassan bin Jeddo, has long been known for his close ties to Hizbullah.

Kuntar, for his part, thanked Jeddo and Al-Jazeera for supporting him and other prisoners in Israeli jails and for waging a campaign to bring about their release.

Daniel Seaman, director of the GPO, expressed outrage over the event.

On Tuesday, Seaman phoned Walid Omari, the Al-Jazeera bureau chief in Israel, and summoned him to an urgent meeting to inform him of the GPO's decision to suspend ties with the station.

Media Ignores Israeli Victims

The msm still cannot bring itself to see Israelis as the victims of Arab aggression. In much of its intitial coverage of the copycat bulldozer attack, the Israeli victims were ignored while the focus was on the fact that the Arab terrorist driving the bulldozer was shot to death by Israeli security. There is also a reluctancy to even acknowledge the bulldozer driver as a terrorist simply because no specific terror group has claimed responsibility. The msm continues to display its moral degeneracy when it comes to coverage of the Middle East, particularly the Israeli-Arab conflict. At best there is moral equivalency, at worst they are fully on the side of the islamists against Israel. The BBC and other British media outlets are outright propagandists for islamic terror.

Less than three weeks after a Palestinian from east Jerusalem used a bulldozer to kill three people on a busy street in Israel's capital, another east Jerusalem resident attempted to replicate the attack. The second attacker rammed his bulldozer into a bus, then began flipping cars on the street, wounding at least 16 people.

When the first bulldozer rampage took place, we were stunned to see the BBC’s initial headline focusing on the fate of the driver – who was shot by Israeli security – rather than the victims of his attack. The BBC subsequently changed its headline to make it more neutral, reflecting what appeared to be a better understanding of the incident and its significance.

Or so we thought. Despite a virtual repetition of the first incident, the BBC’s initial response the second time was a headline questioning whether an attack had taken place at all. The headlines on the BBC’s web page went from “New Vehicle ‘Attack’ in Jerusalem” to “New Digger ‘Attack’ in Jerusalem,” then finally settled on “Israel Hit By New Digger Attack.”

It is difficult to understand how the BBC ever saw the incident as anything other than an attack. The bulldozer driver rammed into a bus, then pushed into it several more times, shattering glass and throwing the passengers into a panic. He then zigzagged through the road to harm as many motorists as possible before he was stopped. This is how the bus driver described the incident to the Jerusalem Post.

"I was driving on the main road when suddenly the tractor hit me in the rear on the right hand side," said bus driver Avi Levy.

At first Levy thought it was a traffic accident, but then the attacker struck the bus over and over, causing pandemonium as passengers shouted: "God save us" and "escape, escape."

"He made a U-turn and rammed the windows twice with the shovel. The third time he aimed for my head - he came up to my window and death was staring me in the eyes," Levy said.

"Fortunately I was able to swerve to the right [onto a small side street], otherwise I would have gone to meet my maker," he said as he stood next to the badly damaged bus, whose left-side windows were completely blown out.

U.S. Report on Israel Expected to be Highly Critical

Retired general James Jones who is the U.S. security coordinator for the Israeli-palestinian conflict, is expected to release a scathing criticism of Israeli policies in Judea and Samaria as well as its attitude toward the PA security services. As Sultan Knish reveals, it just so happens that Jones, who was appointed by Condi Rice, is a Chevron board member and president of the Institute for 21st Century Energy. As such, his allegiance lies with Saudi Arabia given Chevron's close ties to that country. There are too many traitors working in our own government and working against the interests of America and instead acting on behalf of those who wish to destroy us and of course Israel. The Israel lobby has nothing on the Arab lobby. Yet we never hear complaints regarding the Arab lobby and its extremely negative influence on our government. When this report is released publicly we need to shout it out loud that Jones is on the board of Chevron which is beholden to saudi arabia and therefore the report and its author have no credibility.

In what is practically a dictionary definition of Conflict of Interest, Retired General, Chevron Board Member and President of the Institute for 21st Century Energy, James L. Jones was chosen to give a report on Israeli tensions with Fatah terrorists in the West Bank. Now word is that the report will be negative, though why anyone would expect a man who is set to join the board of directors of one of the world’s largest oil companies to do anything but issue a report blasting Israel baffles me.

The James L. Jones story gets much dirtier when you consider that he was appointed to his post by Condoleeza Rice, who even wanted him to become her Deputy Secretary of State. Condoleeza Rice is herself a former Chevron board member and even had a Chevron oil tanker named after her. This is yet another illustration of the revolving door between the energy industry and the diplomatic corps. A revolving door that benefits Saudi Arabia and Big Oil.

Chevron is of course closely tied to Saudi Arabia. In his Saudi speech, Chevron’s Vice Chairman called for “energy interdependence” with Middle Eastern oil producing countries, rather than energy independence. Anyone who seriously thinks therefore that James L. Jones has any credibility in his role at the Institute for 21st Century Energy in its stated mission of moving America off the gasoline teat, is living in a fantasy world. The same goes for anyone who thinks James L. Jones has any credibility in his role in investigating Israel. Having a major oil company board member whose corporation is beholden to the Saudis investigate Israel is like having the mob investigate the NYPD.

Muslim Subway Ads

An islamic group plans to place ads in subway cars in New York in September which lie about the "true" nature of islam to gullible non-muslims.

Allah board!

An Islamic group plans to blitz 1,000 subway cars with advertisements this September in a campaign being promoted by a Brooklyn imam whom federal officials have linked to a plot to blow up city landmarks.

The group says its mission is to explain the true nature of Islam to non-Muslims who believe the religion is bent on acts of violence - but Siraj Wahhaj, the inflammatory imam who appears in a promotional YouTube video for the project, has defended convicted bomb-plotters and called the FBI and CIA the "real terrorists."

Imagine that. What could possibly make us believe that islam is bent on acts of violence? Apparently this group doesn't see the irony in having an imam who is linked to terrorist plots to blow up city landmarks, promoting a campaign which claims islam is peaceful. Then again what imam is not linked to terrorism. They obviously for good reason think we infidels are complete fools that we would fall for these laughable ads. I would encourage anyone riding a subway in NY who sees these ads, to tear them down.

US Attorney Mary Jo White even named Wahhaj one of 170 unindicted co-conspirators in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and the thwarted plan to blow up a slew of buildings.

"In time, this so-called democracy will crumble, and there will be nothing, and the only thing that will remain will be Islam," Wahhaj said in one of his sermons.

The stark, black-and-white ads of the Subway Project promote Islam with the goals of clearing up long-held misconceptions about the faith and reaching out to those interested in becoming Muslim, according to the Islamic Circle of North America, the group behind the campaign.

Timed to run during the month of Ramadan, the ads come in pairs, reading "Q: Prophet Muhammad?" or "Q: Islam?" and the corresponding answer is always "A: You deserve to know."

Those interested in knowing more are directed to call (877) WHY-ISLAM or to visit whyislam.org, which provide literature that teaches and proselytizes about the faith.

The group insists it is not looking to transform subway cars into the "G-had train."

"Anyone who looks at this ad objectively can see that it is not preaching anything," Azeem Khan, the group's assistant secretary general, told The Post. "There is a lot of Islamaphobia out there. We provide people with a chance to speak with an actual Muslim who is informed."

Wahhaj, imam of Al-Taqwa mosque, is a former member of the Nation of Islam and was the first Muslim to give an invocation at the House of Representatives.

Formal charges were never filed against him by White, although he did serve as a character witness for the defense in the trial of Omar Abdel-Rahman, "the blind sheik" who is now serving a life sentence for his role in plotting the 1993 WTC bombings.

In the promotional video for the Subway Project, Wahhaj is the first to speak.

"Every day in this city, some 4.9 million people ride the subways - that is a lot of people," he says. "Imagine them seeing the word Islam. Imagine them seeing the word Muhammad."

The MTA confirmed that the group has signed a contract for the ad campaign but would not comment further.

Muslim Gangs Rape Women in Europe

In England earlier this month, a muslim gang dragged a woman into a car, drove around and raped her and then dumped her on an Oxford road after she stepped out of a bar. Of course the article does not describe the savages as muslims, it uses the politically correct euphemism "Asian" to describe them. This is a frequent problem throughout Europe where gangs of muslim beasts believe they have the right to rape young women who do not behave and dress in a way that is acceptable to islam. In the perverse and sick culture of islam, raping women and girls to keep them in line is enouraged and sharia law makes the female victim of rape the criminal instead. Because of the large influx of muslims, the streets of Europe, once safe places to walk around, are now extremely dangerous. Some places in Europe are now no-man's land for non-muslims.

SEX attackers abducted a teenager after a night out and took her on a terrifying 30-minute car journey through the city.

Three Asian men dragged the victim into their car after she had stepped out of a bar on Oxford Road.

The car was driven to Rusholme and back while two men carried out a `serious sexual assault' on the woman.

She was dumped 30 minutes later on Oxford Road.

Arranged Marriage Causes Muslim Girl to Leap From Balcony

Yet another example of the ways in which islam destroys lives, especially the lives of females. A Pakistani teenage girl in Italy jumped from her balcony rather than having to face a miserable life as a typical muslim wife forced into marriage with a man she does not love and who she would be a slave to. She fortunately only sustained fractures to her legs. It's sad that this 15 year old and others like her may be forced into spending the rest of their lives being nothing more than chattel to some vile scum who will likely beat the crap out of her and force her into confinement and having to completely cover herself anytime she is allowed to go out in public. Give me one reason that muslim "men" shouldn't be castrated.

Alessandria, 2 July (AKI) - A 15-year-old Pakistani girl was hospitalised after reportedly jumping from a balcony in the northern Italian town of Alessandria.

She had refused an arranged marriage with a 16-year-old Pakistani.

"My parents had already been in touch with his and told me I would be marrying him. I have nothing against him but I do not love him," Turin-based La Stampa daily quoted the girl as telling police from her hospital bed on Wednesday.

La Stampa called the girl 'Piccola' and said medics had operated on fractures to her legs sustained after falling from the family's balcony onto a roof below.

Piccola, who has grown up in Italy, is said to be well integrated here. She wears western-style clothes and has Italian schoolfriends.

"I told my parents that I didn't love the boy and why should I live with him?" Piccola reportedly told the police.

Piccola said she did not reproach her parents for their choice, but said she had felt desperate to escape the fate they had chosen for her.

Neighbours described Piccola and her family as "good, really polite people, all of them."

The neighbourhood of Alessandria the family lives in, Cristo, is respectable and is home to generations of immigrants, La Stampa reported.

The previous centre-left Italian government issued a 'charter of values' for immigrants after the tragic case of another young Pakistani girl, Hina Saleem who was murdered by male relatives in August 2006.

Hina's father Mohammed, confessed to slitting 20-year-old Hina's throat for 'dishonouring the family' because she lived with an Italian man, wore jeans and worked in a pizzeria.

Mohammed and two male relatives were each sentenced last year to 30 years in jail for Hina's murder. A blue-collar worker, Mohammed had been living in Italy as a legal immigrant for decades and was in the process of applying for Italian citizenship.

Do we need to keep being reminded of why muslims should not be allowed to immigrate to the west accept maybe women and children desperately wanting to escape the brutal and hellish existence of life under islam.

Obama's Forged Birth Certificate

Atlas Shrugs has the exclusive story proving Barack Hussein Obama's alleged birth certificate which was posted on his website and the dailykos, is indeed a forgery. Techdude, a computer forensic analysis expert provides irrefutable evidence of a forgery. The only question now is what Obama is hiding regarding his birth. It's seems obvious that he is not a natural born U.S. citizen, which would make him inelligible to be president according to the constitution.

And as the result of techdude's efforts exposing this malcontent for the fraud that he is, some Obama gangster or gangsters vandalized his car and hung a dead rabbit on his front door. Those behind the rise of barack hussein obama are essentially Chicago gangsters beginning with mayor Daley, who himself is nothing more than a criminal, a gangster as is his entire political machinery. These are people who do not care about the country, only in furthering their own personal and political ambitions even if it means defying the constitution and running a candidate not elligible to be president and using any means necessary to conceal the truth about him and put him in the White House, including threats of physical violence and possibly even resorting to killing anyone willing to investigate Obama.

Techdude delivers a final report that exceeds my wildest expectations. It is irrefutable, empirical evidence - Obama's birth certificate is a forgery. Why? Why a COLB (certificate of live birth) forgery? That is the question.

My deepest thanks and appreciation for Techdude's unwavering commitment to the truth despite the threats and harassment, the slashed tires and the dead animal on his porch.

Insofar as "techdude's" credentials, he is an active member of the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, American College of Forensic Examiners, The International Society of Forensic Computer Examiners, International Information Systems Forensics Association - the list goes on. He also a board certified as a forensic computer examiner, a certificated legal investigator, and a licensed private investigator. He has been performing computer based forensic investigations since 1993 (although back then it did not even have a formal name yet) and he has performed countless investigations since then.

Here is his analysis:

Obama’s Birth Certificate – CHANGE you can believe in.

I have decided to leave out the low level technicalities and the how-to section of this report due to a lack of time and more importantly I want to get the facts out as quickly as possible. As some of you may or may not know some asshat decided to track me down and vandalize my car and hang a dead mutilated rabbit from my front door in a lame attempt to intimidate me from proceeding with releasing any details of my analysis. They did succeed in delaying the report by a few days but instead of deterring me they just really pissed me off. To their credit, if I had not taken a few days off from the analysis I would have missed the most damning piece of evidence – the remnants of the previous security border. So to the demented retard who slaughtered an animal to make a point – f*ck you and thank you. And because of the amazing number of violent psychopaths who seem to be drawn to this issue, I am not going to use or supply any details that can be used to identify the owners of the COLBS used in the analysis except for those which have already been publicly disclosed. If the owners want to come forward on their own that is entirely their decision. Now let’s get to the summarized report.

In questioned document analysis there are several methods for detecting forgeries – the most basic of which is to conduct a side by side evaluation of known good samples to compare against the questioned one and to use an alternate light source to highlight the changes in the color and density of the inks and paper. In the case at hand there are no questioned physical documents to examine so I used the same basic techniques modified for the digital age for use in computer forensic analysis.

Islam is a Sickness Which Destroys Lives

There's so many ways in which islam destroys lives, even the youngest and tiniest are made victims of this evil, inhuman, cruel and heartless ideology. An 8 month old girl in Pakistan has tested positive for polio all because backward seventh century crazed jihadists with diseased minds refuse to allow infants to be vaccinated. These mutants have threatened and beaten health care workers and now children in Pakistan will acquire diseases that could have been prevented and that have been gone for generations in the west. Do we need any more proof that islam is a blight and a cancer on the Earth and needs to be destroyed? That it is in fact a mental illness which corrodes the brains of its most fanatical followers. Like communism and nazism before it, islam is an ideology which must be defeated and thrown into the dustbin of history.

An 8-month-old Pakistani girl has tested positive for polio in an area where militants have opposed vaccination, a World Health Organization official said. The infant, identified as Tanzila, is from Ali Gram in the Swat Valley, where Islamic fundamentalists have beaten polio vaccination teams and the last confirmed case of polio was in 2003, said Dr. Khalid Nawaz of the World Health Organization. Threats to health workers and fighting between government security forces and militants have disrupted vaccinations, he said.

Rescued From a Life as Muslims

A Jewish woman and her eight children were mercifully rescued by Yad L'Achim from a horrible life at the hands of her abusive muslim husband who held her captive for 17 years in the muslim quarter of Jerusalem's Old City and raised the children as muslims. It is a life of misery, physical and emotional abuse and oppression for any woman who is a muslim or marries a muslim man in such an extremely misogynistic culture where women are treated less than human, nothing more than chattel. Obviously Naama was very young and naive and did not know any better and had no understanding of the evil of islam when she married this fiend in order to rebel against her parents and Judaism.

(IsraelNN.com) After a 17-year captivity to an abusive Muslim husband, a Jewish mother and her eight children were rescued Sunday from the Muslim quarter of Jerusalem's Old City. Yad L'Achim, an organization dedicated to solving problems of this type, freed Naama [not her real name] from imprisonment in her own home and almost two decades of fear, shame and violence. Seizing a window of opportunity – her husband was in prison and his brother under house arrest – her liberators wove through the narrow alleyways of the Muslim Quarter to deliver her to safety.




When her rescuers arrived, Naama was living as a Muslim wife in every way, and her Arabic-speaking children had no Jewish identity. All that was set to change as she stepped out this week into a new life among her people.

Naama, now around 40, grew up in a Torah-observant home in the Golan Heights. At 20, she rebelled against Judaism. Constant fighting with her parents and her decision to stop observing Shabbat culminated in a falling-out with her family, and Naama left her home to seek a different life. Vulnerable, with her life in a volatile state, Naama met an Arab man, who married her and brought her to the Muslim Quarter, promising her a warm, stable home where she would be loved and feel happy. Naama's life as a Muslim began.


In time, she gave birth to eight children, who were raised as Muslims. Meanwhile her husband's abusive nature began to reveal itself. By Naama's account, her children endured a life of violence from their father, and she herself ended up living in a state of fear, threats and constant abuse from the Arab man.

The increasingly lawless nature of Naama's Arab husband led to his arrest by Israeli police and his incarceration in an Israeli prison. With her husband temporarily out of Naama's life, his brother was placed under house arrest, leaving Naama with a window of opportunity to flee her life of Islamic servitude.

Edition #174 of the Jewish blog carnival Haveil Havalim is featured this week on Esser Agaroth.

Gaza Buildings Left By Jews Now Being Used for Terror Training

Productive Jewish communities were destroyed and 8000 Jewish residents were forcibly removed from their homes in order to hand over Gaza to the jihadi scum who rule over the Arabs living there. Synagogues, schools and greenhouses were left standing for the purpose of the Gaza Arabs to begin to build an economy and society. Not surprisingly, no sooner had the Israelis pulled out then the greenhouses were looted and destroyed. And of course hamas has been launching rockets from Gaza on Sderot since the Israeli withdrawal. And now it's being reported that public buildings, including synagogues and schools are being used as terrorist training centers for hamas and islamic jihad. Did the Israeli government and the west which pressured it to surrender Gaza, expect anything different? Has surrendering territory and ethnically cleansing Jews done anything besides result in increased terrorism against Israel? Yet despite the fact that territorial concessions have never led to peace, Israel's braindead and weak leaders continue fruitless negotiations to surrender yet additional territory in Judea and Samaria and evacuate more Jews. The so-called "Palestinians" have never been interested in building a state of their own, their only purpose in life is to destroy the Jewish state. In fact the only purpose islam serves is to kill and be killed for the sake of allah.

Watch this video of hamas terrorists training in the ruins of Atzmona Synagogue.

Public buildings left standing after the evacuation of Gush Katif reportedly are being used as terrorist training centers.

Yediot Achronot reported Tuesday that videos filmed by Gaza Strip terrorist organizations show Palestinian terrorists from Hamas and Islamic Jihad training at the sites of former Gush Katif public buildings, including synagogues and schools.

The buildings, in areas that are far from Palestinian civilians, are backdrops for kidnapping exercises and urban warfare practice conducted with live ammunition.

Gush Katif, a settlement bloc in southern Gaza, was evacuated in August 2005. Some 8,000 residents were forced to leave.

Having the Gush buildings is a boon to the terrorist organizations and their budgets, according to Yediot. The Israel Defense Forces, for example, construct buildings and training areas, including entire neighborhoods, for these kinds of training exercises.

Though many in the government wanted to destroy all of the Jewish public buildings in Gush Katif after it was evacuated, several government ministers supported leaving the public buildings for the benefit of the Palestinian people. Israel's High Court of Justice ruled in September 2005 that the buildings should remain standing.

Celebrating a Vicious Monster

Watch the sickening celebration in Lebanon over the release of baby killer samir kuntar. These are the kind of subhuman monsters that this depraved islamic culture considers as "heroes". Someone who smashed the skull of a four year old. Islam is not any different than nazism, and as I said in my previous post, islam is inhuman. Islam is, I believe, a serious mental illness, a large portion of its followers psychopathic and not truly human. To anyone who would consider me bigoted and wrong, I defy you to prove me otherwise that what I say about islam is untruthful.

Lebanon being that it is a country which harbors and celebrates terrorists, it therefore renders itself fair game to be ruthlessly and brutally attacked by Israel the next time hezbollah initiates a war with Israel.

Obama's Remarks After 9/11

As if one needed any further motivation to vote for John McCain, here is what Barack Hussein Obama said after 9/11:

Even as I hope for some measure of peace and comfort to the bereaved families, I must also hope that we, as a nation, draw some measure of wisdom from this tragedy. Certain immediate lessons are clear, and we must act upon those lessons decisively. We need to step up security at our airports. We must re-examine the effectiveness of our intelligence networks and we must be resolute in identifying the perpetrators of these heinous acts and dismantling their organizations of destruction.

We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity or suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to aparticular culture, religion or ethnicity.

It certainly is. It is innate and unique to islam which is nothing more than a death cult. Islam is devoid of any humanity whatsoever and from childhood its followers are programmed to be entirely stripped of any normal human feelings such as compassion and empathy and even stripped of the very survival instinct which exists in all living creatures. This is why they can be made to gleefully blow themselves up. Essentially being a muslim is to not be human.

It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, it may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.

We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad. We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle-Eastern descent. Finally, we will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe—children not just in the Middle East, but also in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe and within our own shores.

No obama you jackass, terrorism does not result from poverty or despair, it is motivated by ISLAM, stupid! It is what the koran commands them to do. Most terrorists are affluent. Terrorists are not coming from embittered children across the globe. It is only coming from MUSLIMS and they are not embittered, they are elated to perform their jihad duty for allah and they are thrilled with the prospect of being “martyred”. Muslim parents celebrate the deaths of their sons who were killed while carrying out jihad against infidels. Is there any further proof needed as to why this man is not fit to become president? He is prepared to appease our enemies and address the grievances of the muslim world which cannot ever be reasoned with and placated. H/t Israpundit

The ISM is a Sponsor of Terror

A Pennsylvania man, Richard David Hupper is to be sentenced in federal court for giving $20,000 to a group which supports hamas. According to Solomonia, the non-profit agency being referred to in the article is the International Solidarity Movement. And now the ISM is worried it will be designated a terrorism sponsor by the government. There's no question that the ISM colludes with hamas and other palestinian terror groups and should be placed on the government's list of terrorism sponsors.

A member of islamic jihad, Shadi Sukia, was apprehended by the IDF while hiding in an ISM office in Jenin. In another incident, ISM member Tom Hurndall was shooting at an IDF outpost and was subsequently shot in the head by the IDF, deservedly so, although the msm at the time made him appear as merely an "activist" heroically protecting palestinian children from Israeli gunfire and according to the msm was shot by the evil Israelis for no apparent reason. So its clear that not only is the ISM a sponsor of terrorism, but its members are also actively participating in the terror war against Israel.

A York County native who traveled to the war-torn Middle East to work with Palestinians will be sentenced in federal court this month for aiding a terrorist organization.

Richard David Hupper, 32, was charged with giving about $20,000 to a group he knew supported Hamas, the Palestinian military and political organization, according to court documents and his defense lawyer.

It is a crime to give money to Hamas, or to groups that support it, because it is considered a terrorist organization by the U.S. government. Hupper pleaded guilty in May.

The Leader Heights, York Township, native likely will be sentenced to about five years, his lawyer said.

Hupper's defense attorney, Neal R. Lewis, a Reading native who works in Florida, said the charges stem from Hupper's donations to a nonprofit agency that, in turn, supports Hamas.

He saw his mission as a humanitarian cause and wanted his donations to support the families of Palestinians who had been detained or killed, Lewis said...

...The charges against Hupper came more than a year after he pleaded guilty to attempting to obtain a passport using false information, a case that is related to his work with the Palestinians, Lewis said.

Hupper had been in Israel working with Palestinians, but the Israeli government kicked him out.

He wanted to go back, so he tried to get a passport using someone else's name, Social Security number and a forged birth certificate, and he was arrested, according to court documents...

...Hupper, who last lived in York County about six years ago, decided to involve himself in the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis while he was in Alabama working as a machinist, Lewis said.

While in Alabama, Hupper was injured at work, and he spent much of his time off watching TV, including international news, Lewis said. Hupper decided he wanted to travel to the Gaza Strip with the goal to help the Palestinian people...

...Hupper traveled to Israel, where he actively worked with a non-governmental agency to aid Palestinians impacted by the Middle East conflict, Lewis said. He was eventually ordered to leave Israel and returned to Florida after a stop in Jordan.

After spending some time in Florida, he decided he wanted to return to his work with Palestinians, and that's when he applied for the passport with false information.

Prosecutors agreed to recommend a light sentence on the passport charges, according to court documents. Hupper, who is in a Miami federal prison, was sentenced to serve a total of 24 months for those charges. His release date is set for November.

With the latest charges, Hupper faces more time in prison -- a maximum of 15 years -- and $250,000 in fines. But because he has admitted to his crime and pleaded guilty, it's likely he will be sentenced to about five years, Lewis said.

Obama Website Still a Haven for Antisemites

Rampant antisemitism is still acceptable on Barack Hussein Obama's official website.

Off His Axis.

Opinion Watch

Joe Klein blogs for Time: “The notion that we could just waltz in and inject democracy into an extremely complicated, devout and ancient culture smacked–still smacks–of neocolonialist legerdemain. The fact that a great many Jewish neoconservatives–people like Joe Lieberman and the crowd over at Commentary–plumped for this war, and now for an even more foolish assault on Iran, raised the question of divided loyalties: using U.S. military power, U.S. lives and money, to make the world safe for Israel. And then there is the question–made manifest by the no-bid contracts offered U.S. oil companies by the Iraqis–of two oil executives, Bush and Cheney, securing a new source of business for their Texas buddies.


Iran and a changing America

There is nothing about my country that I do not love except when it begins to deviate from it’s original premise, which it seems to have been doing a great deal of recently. I read on Yahoo! that Presidential candidate hopeful Hillary Clinton said that she planned to “obliterate” Iran if they planned any attack on Israel. Strange to read such strong words in defense of a country which has been committing countless atrocities in Palastine and Lebanon. I wondered for a moment whether she was unaware of Israeli policies until I discovered that much of her campaign has been paid for by the Israeli Zionists. Irsraeli Zionists who have no tolerance for Palestine, Lebanon, or, recently, Iran.

It is the muslim world which has no tolerance for Jews and Israel. And why should Israel tolerate those who want to annihilate her?


Here is a nutcase, so far to the left and full of hatred for Jews, even though he claims to be one, that he actually thinks Obama's allegiance is to Israel:

Up until recently, I have been excited about the prospect of Barack Obama as our next president. I shouldn’t have to, but I will preface my comment here by stating that I’m an American Jew, veteran and patriot. One thing that is disgustingly apparent in America is that very few public figures (celebrities, heads of business, civic and religious leaders, politicians, etc.) have the courage to speak out against Israel’s policies of racism and apartheid, occupation, dehumanization, targeted assassinations, deception and espionage on our own country. Well, duh … “Of course!” … people (including politicians) are very afraid. They’ve seen that criticism of Israel can result in swift career suicide. But they be more concerned about America than about their own asses?

Yesterday’s article (Chicago Tribune, March 2, 2007) “Obama calls Iran threat to U.S., Israel” has turned me “OFF” Obama. In the article, Obama criticizes this present adminstration’s Middle East policies, but he should also be aware of … and address … the fact that Israel has greatly influenced those policies. Obama should not be sucking-up to a racist state (Israel), and especially a state (Israel) which is arguably greatly responsible for us being in Iraq in the first place. Many of the neocons who drew up the plans to attack Iraq (before 9-11) were Jews with known allegiance to Israel … some of whom held/hold dual (Israeli/American) citizenship. Israel is not held to account over its nuclear arsenal. It is not held to account for its violations of UN Resolutions.

While it’s easy to understand Israel’s fears and insecurities, I don’t feel it’s up to Americans to foot the bill in terms of tax dollars and human lives to keep Israel secure. Israel has the 4th largets military in the world … let them fight their own battles. Jews make up no more than 2.3 percent of our U.S. population, yet AIPAC is one of the most powerful lobbies in America, and truly dictates our foreign policy. Most American Jews would not set foot in Israel, let alone want to live there … yet most American Jews blindly support Israel.

When has Israel failed to fight its own battles? While America has NEVER fought a war on Israel’s behalf, we have fought wars on behalf of the Arabs. It’s funny how that always gets overlooked by those such as the above miscreant who wrote that diatribe on mybarackobama. Why is there no such complaints over the vast ARAB LOBBY which really shapes U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East? Not only are these cretins morally bankrupt, they are ignoramuses. And these are the people Obama attracts. This is enough reason for Jews to vote for McCain.

Greece Assists Israel

Kudos to Greece for assisting the Israeli airforce's practice missions for a possible strike on Iran's nuclear facilities. I suspect alot of countries, including Arab countries, would secretly be relieved if Israel or the U.S. took out Iran's nukes, although they would of course publicly condemn it. One can only wonder why Europe has been wasting its time negotiating with these crazy, genocidal mullahs. There is nothing the west could possibly offer Iran that would cause them to give up nuclear weapons and the power that would come with having them. The only incentive we can offer Iran is letting them know that either they give up on their nuclear weapons drive or the regime ceases to exist. In fact Joseph Farah advises that even without nuclear weapons, the islamic republic of Iran is a threat and therefore the mullahcratic regime should be taken out anyway. There are those who say negotiations can't hurt but that isn't true because it buys Iran time.

Greece has quietly assisted the Israeli Air Force in a previously unreported fashion as the dreaded decision of a possible Israeli preemptive strike against Iran’s nuclear facilities draws closer, this reporter has learned.

A pivotal factor in Israel’s military strategy against Iran’s nuclear installations is the recent delivery to Iran of Russia’s potent S-300 Russian ground-to-air radar systems. Considered one of the world’s most versatile radar-missile systems, Russia’s S-300 batteries can simultaneous track hundreds of semi-stealth cruise missiles, long range missiles and aircraft, including airborne monitoring jets. As many as ten intruders can be simultaneously engaged by the S-300’s mobile interceptor missile batteries, military sources say. As such, the S-300 is a major threat to the long-range weapons in the Israeli arsenal. These include Israel’s long-range 1,500 km. nuclear-capable Jericho IIB missiles; unmanned missile-equipped long-range drones; Israel’s F-16s, F-15Es; long range heavy-payload F151s and F161s; and even its three new Gulfstream G550 business jets boasting a range of 6,750 nautical miles, newly outfitted with nuclear-tracking electronics and designed to loiter over or near Iranian skies for hours. The S-300 can compromise everything Israel has.

But Greece has the same Russian S-300 system.

Originally purchased by Cyprus in 1998, the Cypriot installation provoked a storm of protracted protests by Turkey because the system would make vulnerable all Turkish air movements. To resolve tensions and prevent a Turkish preemptive attack on the installations, the S-300 by international agreement was moved to Crete for safekeeping, and eventually joint-Cypriot-Greek control based on the 1993 mutual defense pact between Cyprus and Greece. On December 20, 2007, the move and installation of the S-300 was quietly completed.

In the last days of May and first week of June, 2008, Israel staged an impressive and well-reported exercise over Crete with the participation of the Greek air force. More than 100 Israeli F-16 and F-15 fighter jets, as well as Israeli rescue helicopters and mid-air refueling planes flew a massive number of mock strikes. Israeli planes reportedly never landed but were continuously refueled from airborne platforms. Israel demonstrated that a 1400 km distance could be negotiated with Israeli aircraft remaining aloft and effective. Iran’s Natanz nuclear enrichment facility is 1400 km from Israel.

Victory for Hezbollah

A victory for hezbollah and celebrations in Lebanon as Israel releases live terrorists, including the worst monster of all, child murderer samir kuntar, for the bodies of Ehud Goldwasser and Eldad Regev. Expect a wave of kidnappings and killings of Israelis as there isn't even an incentive for terrorists to keep them alive since they can expect all of their demands to be met either way. If only the IDF would put these monsters to death upon capture then there couldn't be any deals for weak Israeli political leaders to make. But what's even more infuriating is that not only don't they receive the punishment they truly deserve, but mutants like kuntar while sitting in Israeli prisons are given a college education and allowed to get married and have conjugal visits with their wives. Einat and Yael Haran never had the chance to go to school, grow up and get married. And yet this vile creature is now free and he will no doubt go back to perpetrating terrorism while Israel's heroes, Goldwasser and Regev are dead. The fact that Israel will treat even the worst and most monsterous of its enemies humanely, while those same muslim enemies take sadistic pleasure in brutally murdering little children, shows the stark contrast in values between Israel and the muslim world. It doesn't pay to be civilized and humane in a world where evil is rewarded. Israel needs to be as ruthless as her enemies and kill rather than imprison terrorists.

And what sort of depraved culture celebrates the release of and gives a hero's welcome to a subhuman creature who gleefully smashed the head of a four year old against a rock? I'll tell you what kind of culture, one which is an evil bloodthirsty death cult which has no value for life. Islam celebrates death the way we celebrate life.

I'm sure we can also expect a similar deal to be made with hamas for Gilad Shalit. Assuming he is alive, why won't Israel just go in and rescue him? If Columbia is capable of carrying out a rescue mission of its hostages who were held by FARC, there is no reason whatsoever that Israel shouldn't be able to do the same. Israel doesn't lack the military skill to carry off a similar successful operation, its only a lack of will with the current political leadership that hinders Israel. There was a time when Israel carried out such daring missions, when it actually had strong political leaders.

Antisemitism in Europe

Well wouldn't you know, half of antisemitic incidents in Europe are perpetrated by members of the religion of peace. Islam is after all, a peaceful religion which for some unknown reason just so happens to inspire rampant hatred and violence amongst so many of its followers everywhere in the world. Something which is not seen in any other religion. Everywhere muslims are a significant proportion of the population, they create conflict with others. Yet there are those who still attempt to explain away the reasons for islamic terrorism, attributing it to American and Israeli foreign policy or poverty, refusing to accept the most obvious conclusion of all, which is that hatred, intolerance and jihad, holy war, are the basis of islam and have been going on for centuries, and such behavior on the part of muslims is NOT being caused by any provocation on our part.

Some 50 percent of anti-Semitic incidents on the European continent are connected to radical Islamic elements, according to a senior European Commission official.

A photo provided by police shows the words "Jew out" in German, smeared on a gravestone at a Jewish cemetery in Czestochowa, Poland, Monday.

The figure comes from European Commissioner for Justice, Freedom and Security Franco Frattini, who is responsible in the EU for combating racism and anti-Semitism in Europe. Frattini mentioned it in a conversation with Minister for Diaspora Affairs Isaac Herzog last week, and said it was based on European Union reports.

Frattini was in Israel last week for the Second European Union-Israel Seminar for Combating Racism and Anti-Semitism at the Foreign Ministry in Jerusalem.

Herzog, who is responsible for coordinating government activities in combating anti-Semitism at the cabinet level, told The Jerusalem Post that it was "not new that Frattini relates a large percentage of anti-Semitic incidents to radical Islam, and it's important to say, not Islam as such."

According to Herzog, European governments are responding to this "aggressively," including educating Muslim imams throughout the continent on "European values, principles of democracy, the rights of women and the like."

Besides dealing with the radical Islamic source of a large part of anti-Semitic activity in Europe, European and international institutions are beginning to respond to anti-Semitic discourse through education, according to the minister.

Obama's Hypocrisy

CHICAGO - Democrat Barack Obama said Tuesday that the New Yorker
magazine's satirical cover depicting him and his wife as flag-
burning, fist-bumping radicals doesn't bother him but that it was an
insult to Muslim Americans.


"You know, there are wonderful Muslim Americans all across the
country who are doing wonderful things," the presidential candidate
told CNN's Larry King. "And for this to be used as sort of an insult,
or to raise suspicions about me, I think is unfortunate. And it's not
what America's all about."

Obama blamed himself for not being forceful enough in challenging
some of the rumors about him, including that he is Muslim. Obama is
Christian.

The son of a Kenyan father, Obama lived in the largely Muslim nation
of Indonesia as a child. He dealt with similar questions in February
after a photo surfaced of him wearing traditional Kenyan clothing
during a visit to Africa in 2006.

The cover of the magazine, which hit newsstands Monday, depicts Obama
in traditional Muslim clothing â€" sandals, robe and turban â€" while his
wife, Michelle, has an assault rifle slung over one shoulder and is
dressed in camouflage and combat boots with her hair in an Afro. A
flag burns in a fireplace behind them as they bump fists, and a
portrait of Osama bin Laden hangs above the mantel.

New Yorker Editor David Remnick told the Huffington Post Web site the
cover was chosen because it had something to say.

When first asked about it on Sunday, Obama declined comment. His
spokesman, Bill Burton, said it was "tasteless and offensive."

Obama said he's developed "a pretty thick skin" running for president
and has "seen and heard worse."

"I do think that, you know, in attempting to satirize something, they
probably fueled some misconceptions about me instead," he said. "But,
you know, that was their editorial judgment. And as I said,
ultimately, it's a cartoon, it's not where the American people are
spending a lot of their time thinking about."


Obama is such a damn hypocrite. This man spent 20 years in a church with a pastor who spewed racist and antisemitic garbage. He wasn't the least bit concerned about white people and Jews being "insulted". He has no business lecturing anyone about bigotry. But in the mind of nobama and his followers and the media, only the sensibilities of certain groups matter, such as blacks and muslims. On the other hand nobama himself can be forgiven for his own hateful associations. It is permissible to hate white people and to hate Jews if you are black or a muslim. We cannot let the voting public forget about his ties to TUCC and Wright while Hussein nobama attempts to turn it around to make himself look like the victim of bigotry even though he himself is the one who has spent his life traveling in racist, radical circles. Does Obama stop to consider that what he says are "misconceptions" about himself being a radical have actually been fueled by his own actions and choice of friends and associates, rather than anything his political opponents have done?

Story of the Raid on Osirak

The compelling story of Israel's daring raid on Iraq's Osirak nuclear reactor in June of 1981. The reactor was built with the help of Jaques Chirac. Alexander Haig was the only member of the Reagan administration who defended Israel's action at the time. Most of the world villified Israel. Of course a decade later at the end of the gulf war, Dick Cheney wrote Israel to thank them for destroying saddam's nukes. That war could have turned out much differently if hussein would have had nuclear weapons capability. h/t Israpundit

The Latest Haveil Havalim

Edition #173 of the Jewish blog carnival Haveil Havalim is featured at Jack's Shack this week.

Obama on Islam

Like so many leaders in government throughout the west, Barack Hussein Obama sees the current wave of islamic extremism and terrorism as the result of the failure of the west, especially the U.S. to sufficiently engage and understand the islamic world. Obama and others in government, academia and the media refuse to grasp that the problem is inherent within islam itself, that the koran indocrinates its followers that it is their muslim duty to perform jihad. There is this myth that islam had been peaceful and tolerant through most of its history until of course the advent of Zionism and America becoming a world power. But this is not so. From Mohamed's time when he and his followers slaughtered the Quarish Jewish tribe of Medina, islam has always been intolerant, violent and expansionist. How do they think islam spread to Africa, India, Spain and other places? Through violent conquest, that's how. Arabs are not the indigenous people of Africa or anywhere else outside the Arabian penninsula. The crusades in fact were a response to centuries of islamic conquest. Indigenous peoples who were conquered by islam had their cultures and religions destroyed, at best lived as dhimmis, second class citizens, or at worst were killed for not converting. Oftentimes the men would be slaughtered and the women and children used as slaves. And muslim terrorists do not target us today because of our foreign policy. Back during the time of George Washington when America was not a world power, the muslim barbary pirates attacked American merchant ships. Muslims are waging jihad in places where there is no American military presence such as Thailand, Sudan and throughout Africa. I get really infuriated at anyone who is an apologist for islam and claims it was peaceful until provoked by Israel and America.

Here is a segment of an interview of Obama conducted by Fareed Zakaria for CNN:

ZAKARIA: Do you believe, when looking at the world today, that Islamic extremism is the transcendent challenge of the 21st century?

OBAMA: I think the problems of terrorism and groups that are resisting modernity, whether because of their ethnic identities or religious identities, and the fact that they can be driven into extremist ideologies, is one of the severe threats that we face.

I don't think it's the only threat that we face.

ZAKARIA: But how do you view the problem within Islam? As somebody who saw it in Indonesia ... the largest Muslim country in the world?

OBAMA: Well, it was interesting. When I lived in Indonesia -- this would be '67, '68, late '60s, early '70s -- Indonesia was never the same culture as the Arab Middle East. The brand of Islam was always different.

But around the world, there was no -- there was not the sense that Islam was inherently opposed to the West, or inherently opposed to modern life, or inherently opposed to universal traditions like rule of law.

And now in Indonesia, you see some of those extremist elements. And what's interesting is, you can see some correlation between the economic crash during the Asian financial crisis, where about a third of Indonesia's GDP was wiped out, and the acceleration of these Islamic extremist forces.

It isn't to say that there is a direct correlation, but what is absolutely true is that there has been a shift in Islam that I believe is connected to the failures of governments and the failures of the West to work with many of these countries, in order to make sure that opportunities are there, that there's bottom-up economic growth.

You know, the way we have to approach, I think, this problem of Islamic extremism ... is we have to hunt down those who would resort to violence to move their agenda, their ideology forward. We should be going after al Qaeda and those networks fiercely and effectively.

But what we also want to do is to shrink the pool of potential recruits. And that involves engaging the Islamic world rather than vilifying it, and making sure that we understand that not only are those in Islam who would resort to violence a tiny fraction of the Islamic world, but that also, the Islamic world itself is diverse.

And that lumping together Shia extremists with Sunni extremists, assuming that Persian culture is the same as Arab culture, that those kinds of errors in lumping Islam together result in us not only being less effective in hunting down and isolating terrorists, but also in alienating what need to be our long-term allies on a whole host of issues.
Hat tip Jihadwatch
No one assumes that Arab and Persian culture are the same. But when it comes to the ideology of islam, whether Sunni or Shiite, both believe in the concept of violent holy war to conquer the dar al harb and bring it into the dar al islam to form a global islamic ummah. I really love the way this arrogant, elitist ass talks down to Americans believing he is so much smarter and more sophisticated about the world than the rest of us and that we "bitter" folks need to learn from him, when in fact he knows nothing.
