How to Protect Ourselves from Muslims

The View from the Right blog suggests that the only way that non-muslim countries can be safe from islam is to separate ourselves from them and quarantining them to their own lands. He's right of course. But the west just doesn't get it. Western politicians won't acknowledge that the Koran is the motivating factor behind islamic violence. They continue to insist that they are motivated by some greviance which must be addressed. Mainly that being of course Israel's "occupation" and American support for Israel, the Iraq war etc. And we have an incoming president and foreign policy team that is of that mindset. It isn't American foreign policy or Israel's so-called "occupation" which motivates muslims. And since nothing we do is the cause of muslim violence and hate, therefore there is nothing we can change which will put an end to Muslims waging jihad. Muslims are doing what they have been doing since the seventh century and what the Koran and Hadiths instruct them to do; murdering, pillaging, plundering, conquering and subjugating infidels. When will western governments get a clue? We ignore this and carry on with political correctness at our own peril.

And what about the clean-cut, wholesome appearance of the Bombay killers, so different from that of Muhammad Atta's inbred-looking crew? It is the clearest demonstration of the eternal power of Islam over its followers. Even Muslims who look entirely normal and "mainstream" might be terrorists. But we already knew that, didn't we? Remember the photo of one of the July 2005 London bombers that was taken when he was on vacation a couple of weeks before the attack? A smiling, happy-looking, athletic young man. Yet he was a mujahadeen prepared to mass murder non-Muslims and die in the act. Such is the power of the jihadist mandate over the souls of Muslims. It has nothing to do with poverty, grievance, mistreatment, inequality. Their readiness and desire to kill are purely a function of the Koranic commands themselves, efficacious throughout the centuries:

Dutch Church Firebombed by Guess Who

I forgot to post this. In Holland a Christian church was firebombed last weekend by Muslims, of course. The article does not state explicitly that the perpetrators were Muslims, but they come from Morocco, so its not hard to figure out. The media, trying to cover up the truth, obviously thinks we are stupid in that if they don't mention the attackers were Muslims, we won't figure it out. They are not in the west to assimilate or to peacefully coexist with us in a pluralistic society. Muslims are here to conquer and subjugate us. But there is simply no getting through to liberals who continue to ignore what is patently obvious.

Instead of accommodation, these muslims savages should be kicked out and sent back to where they came from and let it be known that their deviant practices, violence and hatred have no place here and don’t conform to the norms of modern western civilization. These leftists are constantly trying to rationalize the behavior of savage cultures and condemn as intolerant, those of us who state the blunt truth that they are barbarians. You bet I’m intolerant toward Islam and I won’t apologize for that. We should start being intolerant and judgemental towards islam. The fact that we don’t, is the reason for the decline of western civilization.

Gouda:Church firebombed

Four teenagers of Moroccan origin were arrested Saturday evening for setting fire to the Vaste Burcht Reformed church in Gouda. A Molotov cocktail was thrown at the door of the church, according to the police. The bottom part of the door and the doormat were damaged.

The four Gouda residents, three aged 14 and one aged 15, are suspected of arson. The fire was reported at 5:45pm and the directions given by the reporter led to the residence of one of them, where three youth were arrested. The 15 year old suspect was arrested later that evening.

Three of the suspects spent the night in jail. They will appear in court Tuesday. A 14 year old was released after interrogation since there was no evidence of his involvement. The police is continuing with the investigation.

A spokesperson of the church said that there are often fights there but this is the first time a Molotov cocktail was thrown at them. The administrator of the church said that they had windows broken in in the past which they put down to street youth.

The parishioners were informed of the events and were told that the police and mayor are taking the case seriously.

Destroy Islam Before it Destroys Us

The Rabbi and his wife, who were among those being held hostage in India by Muslim barbarians, were killed, leaving their infant son an orphan. Give me one reason why islam should continue to be allowed to exist anywhere in the world. Give me one reason that we shouldn't obliterate with nuclear bombs, every islamic country on Earth. Not one of these countries deserves to be left standing. These are nothing more than seventh century bloodthirsty desert savages, not fit to live amongst civilized peoples, with Muslim males being the lowest form of life in the universe. Islam is a toxin infecting the entire planet. Like communism and nazism before it, this ideology needs to be obliterated, korans, mosques and madrassas destroyed the world over. Islam has never contributed anything positive to the world, only death and destruction in its wake.

Islam is a Global Menace

While the media is focusing on the story about the jihadist attack in Mumbai, India, where Brits, Americans and Israelis are being taken hostage, another siege is taking place in Egypt. In Cairo, more than 20,000 hateful, bloodthirsty Muslims have trapped a thousand Coptic Christians inside a church, attacking them with stones and butane gas cylinders. The Copts have long been a persecuted minority in Egypt, as non-Muslims frequently are in Muslim majority countries. And even where Muslims are a minority, they are a menace, as we can see in India. The very essence of Islam is about the conquering and subjugation of infidels. Islam is about destroying and killing instead of building and respecting the sanctity of life as in our Judeo-Christian culture. Islam has no redeeming qualities. It has nothing positive to contribute to the world. Nevertheless there are those who refuse to acknowledge that Islam is a blight on the Earth.

One thousand Christians were today trapped inside the Coptic Orthodox Church of the Virgin Mary in West Ain Shams,Cairo, after more than twenty thousand Muslims attacked them with stones and butane gas cylinders. The Church's priest Father Antonious said that the situation is extremely dangerous.

The Muslim mob that attacked the church blocked both sides of the street and encircled the church building, broke its doors and demolished its entire first floor. The mob were chanting Jihad verses as well as slogans saying "we will demolish the church" and "We sacrifice our blood and souls, we sacrifice ourselves for you, Islam", while the entrapped Christians chanted "Lord have mercy".

The incident started on the occasion of the inauguration of the Church today, when the Muslims hastily established a Mosque in the early hours of this morning, by taking over the first floor of a newly-built building facing the Church and started praying there.

When the security forces tried to disperse the mob, they went to nearby homes and shops owned by Christians, and were armed with sticks, butane, knives and other sharp objects. Witnesses said the mob included children from as young as 8-years old to men of over 50-years old, in addition to women.

The Church building was originally a factory that was adapted into its present state, the matter which took over five years to complete and to get the necessary permissions from the authorities to have a Church established.

Human rights organizations and lawyers were refused entry into the besieged Church.


Meanwhile, a bomb exploded near the US embassy in Afghanistan and two western journalists were abducted in Somalia. Just a typical day in the world of Islam. Somehow the Islamic jihadis didn't get the message that the election of Obama was supposed to bring the world together in peace and harmony where we all sing kumbaya.

The Self-Destruction of the West

Terrorism is not the only thing we have to be worried about when it comes to Islam. More dangerous in the long term is the threat of cultural jihad, soft jihad if you will. It may be the beginning of the end of western civilization as increasingly western nations are coming to accept and recognize the Islamic practice of polygamy and even providing welfare benefits to all the wives and children of polygamists! I have come to believe Europe is finished, that it is past the point of no return and deservedly so since they have allowed the enemy through the gates and are accommodating their deviant practices to boot. What I can't understand is why the average citizens of those countries are sitting passively by while they watch their civilizations destroyed. A time will come when the west accepts the practice of little girls being married off to grown men. After all, it would be islamophobic to deny them this "right".

A Scottish judge recently bent the law to benefit a polygamous household. The case involved a Muslim male who drove 64 miles per hour in a 30 mph zone — usually grounds for an automatic loss of one’s driving license. The defendant’s lawyer explained his client’s need to speed: “He has one wife in Motherwell and another in Glasgow and sleeps with one one night and stays with the other the next on an alternate basis. Without his driving licence he would be unable to do this on a regular basis.” Sympathetic to the polygamist’s plight, the judge permitted him to retain his license.


This sounds like it could have come from the Onion. But it is all too horrifyingly real. The west is actively facilitating its own cultural death. By doing this to ourselves it makes us even sicker than the muslims. I hope Americans have a greater will to fight for our way of life and survival than do Europeans. If we were to allow this, then our Judeo-Christian values, of which this country is based upon, is out the window, and with it the death knell of America as we know it.

Monogamy, this ruling suggests, long a foundation of Western civilization, is silently eroding under the challenge of Islamic law. Should current trends continue, polygamy could soon be commonplace.

Since the 1950s, Muslim populations have grown in Western Europe and North America via immigration and conversion; with their presence has grown the Islamic form of polygyny (one man married to more than one woman). Estimates find 2,000 or more British polygamous men, 14,000 or 15,000-20,000 harems in Italy, 30,000 harems in France, and 50,000-100,000 polygamists in the United States.

Some imams openly acknowledge conducting polygamous marriage ceremonies: Khalil Chami reports that he is asked almost weekly to conduct such ceremonies in Sydney. Aly Hindy reports having “blessed” more than 30 such nuptials in Toronto.

Social acceptance is also growing. Academics justify it, while politicians blithely meet with polygamists or declare that Westerners should “find a way to live with it” and journalists describe polygamy with empathy, sympathy, and compassion. Islamists argue polygamy’s virtues and call for its official recognition.

The Iranian harem as depicted by an Iranian.

Polygamy has made key legal advances in 2008. (For fuller details, see my blog, “Harems Accepted in the West.”) At least six Western jurisdictions now permit harems on the condition that these were contracted in jurisdictions where polygamy is legal, including India and Muslim-majority countries from Indonesia to Saudi Arabia to Morocco.

Jihad Doll

A subliminal message has been placed inside of a Mattel doll which says "Islam is the light". The chip was manufactured in the Muslim country of Indonesia, so it is likely this message was place inside the doll unbeknownst to Mattel. However the company attempts to whitewash the issue, claiming that the sounds are simply distorted, causing misinterpretation. Having listened to the regular and slowed down versions, it sounds to me that the doll is definitely saying "Islam is the light". There is no distortion, it is quite clear. This is one of the subtle ways in which they are trying to indoctrinate American children. A group called Moms Against Mattel is planning to protest outside of several stores around the nation on black Friday.

Summary: Examination of audio in a doll indicates Fisher Price / Mattel doll is been used to promote Islam to children without parents knowledge.

On October 7, 2008, Debbie Schlussel and Pamela Geller broke the story about the Fisher Price (Mattel) marketing the Little Mommy Cuddle & Coo Doll, a doll that she claims states "Islam is the Light" (See: Debbie Schlussel's INDOCTRI-Nation: Fisher-Price Doll Tells Your Kids, "Islam is the Light" and Pamela Geller's BABY DOLLIE TALKING DAWAH ....bwahahaha).

In response, on October 7, Mattel, the parent company of Fisher Price, issued a press release on their website stating:

Statement by: Mattel, Inc.

Re: Little Mommy Cuddle 'n Coo Dolls

The Little Mommy Cuddle 'n Coo dolls feature realistic baby sounds including cooing, giggling, and baby babble with no real sentence structure. The only scripted word the doll says is "mama."

There is a sound that may resemble something close to the word "night, right, or light." To avoid any potential misinterpretation, we have eliminated that segment of the sound file from future production.

Because the original sound track is compressed into a file that can be played through an inexpensive toy speaker, actual sounds may be imprecise or distorted.

We remain confident in the high quality standards of our Little Mommy Cuddle 'n Coo dolls. If consumers have any questions or concerns regarding any Mattel or Fisher-Price toys, they may contact our consumer relations center at 800.524.TOYS (8697) and we will be happy to assist them.

We take every call from our consumers very seriously and do our best to help address their concerns

Sharia is anti-American


The United American Committee has placed an anti-sharia billboard on the Detroit-Toledo expressway. This is right near the heart of the Islamic community. Getting in their face is exactly what needs to be done. Predictably Muslims are whining as they always do when confronted with the truth. How long do they think they can go on fooling Americans as to their true agenda? Thankfully there are organizations such as UAC putting up resistance. Read UAC's press release.

Queen Rania's Propaganda Channel

Jordan's Queen Rania received a visionary award from Youtube for setting up her own channel to address "stereotyping" of Arabs and Muslims. Queen Rania is used as a spokesperson to present a false moderate and westernized face of the Arab-Islamic world to gullible westerners. The queen would do well to address the brutal oppression and savagery inherent in her own culture if she is so interested in bridging the gap between cultures. Let the queen speak out against honor killings, female genital mutilation, beheadings, stonings, floggings, the bloodcurdling calls to slaughter infidels, the global jihad against Christians, Jews, Hindus Buddhists etc. Even her own country of Jordan, which is considered by the west to be "moderate" is culturally backwards. Jews are forbidden to be citizens, honor killings take place and there are laws against blasphemy which the country has recently extended to attempting to extradite non Jordanians who have criticized Islam from within their own countries. So you see, that is where the problem comes from, her own culture, not with us. It is amusing that she would have the nerve to lecture us, the freest country on Earth about tolerance and acceptance. She needs to be lecturing to her own people on that score. It is not Jack Bauer which is responsible for how Americans view Muslims, but rather the real life horrors taking place every day throughout the Islamic world. In fact the entertainment industry goes out of its way to NOT offend Muslims. You rarely see Muslims portrayed as terrorists in movies and TV. I suppose if Queen Rania actually addressed those issues and called for the reformation of her own country and culture, she would end up like Pakistan's Benazir Bhutto.

UN Bans Criticism of Islam

When we've reached the point that one is considered guilty of human rights violations for condemning human rights atrocities committed in the name of Islam, then we are living through a real life Orwell nightmare. The UN needs to be disbanded. It is under the control of the OIC and the Arab League and other sorts of dictatorships and terror states, while free countries are marginalized. The free world must ignore this resolution. I'd also like to know which 42 feckless countries abstained from voting. Those who do not take a stand against tyranny become part of the problem.

UN WATCH

[But advocacy campaign reduces support from 108 to 85 votes]

Geneva, November 24, 2008 — By a vote of 85 to 50, with 42 abstaining, the UN General Assembly today adopted a draft resolution calling on all countries to alter their legal and constitutional systems to prevent “defamation of religions,” asserting that “Islam is frequently and wrongly associated with human rights violations and terrorism.”

The decision, sponsored by Islamic states with the support of Venezuela and Belarus, drew immediate protests from human rights activists and legal experts.
“This is just the latest shot in an intensifying campaign of UN resolutions that dangerously seek to import Islamic anti-blasphemy prohibitions into the discourse of international human rights law,”

said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, an independent human rights monitoring group in Geneva.

“Human rights were designed to protect individuals — to guarantee every person free speech and free exercise of religion — but most certainly not to shield any set of beliefs, religion included.”

“These resolutions legitimize the criminalization of free speech in countries like Sudan, Egypt, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia,” said Neuer. “Muslim moderates, bloggers, women seeking basic freedoms — all of these will be the first to suffer from the worsening climate of state repression in the name of state-supported Islamic orthodoxy.”

“No less is today’s enactment aimed at the Western world, to intimidate anyone from criticizing radical Islam and those who commit violence in its name,” said Neuer.

Proponents of free speech celebrated one small victory, however.

Successful campaigning by an international human rights coalition, including the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty and UN Watch, led to a decline in support for the resolution compared to last year’s vote, which had garnered 108 in support, 51 against, and 25 abstentions.

The proposed draft declaration for the UN’s April 2009 “Durban II” conference on racism includes numerous provisions on the “defamation” of Islam. Denmark has threatened to walk out if they are included.

Smearing Israel in the UN

UN General Assembly president Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, called Israel an apartheid state and endorsed the idea of boycotts, sanctions and divestment against Israel. Of course Israel is the only country in the Middle East which is NOT an apartheid state. It is the only country in that region of the world which respects human rights. Yet serial violators of human rights throughout the region and world are not threatened with sanctions and boycotts, in fact these dictators and terrorists are given red carpet treatment in the UN and world capitals. So while Iran threatens the world with nuclear weapons and al qaeda, hamas, hezbollah and like-minded jihadist groups wage war around the world, the UN's primary agenda is to promote the destruction of the world's only Jewish state.

The time has long passed for American taxpayer dollars to be withheld from this cesspool of an institution and shut its doors for good. We should not be funding an organization which acts directly against American and Israeli interests and that of the free world in general. Why are we allowing this outright enemy of the U.S. and Israel to have its headquarters on our soil? Let the UN move its headquarters to Tehran, Riyad, Damascus or some other similar shithole.

A top UN official has called for "concrete action" against Israel over the country's treatment of Palestinians.

UN General Assembly head Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann.

General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann said the international community should consider sanctions against Israel including "boycott, divestment and sanctions" similar to those enacted against South Africa two decades ago.

D'Escoto, who told The Jerusalem Post in an exclusive interview last month that he "loved" Israel but disagreed with its policies, reiterated in his speech Tuesday that he had "great love for the Jewish people."

But he went on to say that the Holocaust and other historical crimes against the Jews didn't give Israel "the right to abuse others, especially those who historically have such deep and exemplary relations with the Jewish people."

He pointedly added that he wanted to remind Israelis that despite "the protective shield of the United States and the Security Council," nothing could excuse the failure to establish a Palestinian state.

"This central fact makes a mockery of the United Nations and greatly hurts its image and prestige," d'Escoto said.

D'Escoto made no mention of rocket attacks into the western Negev.

Lauren Booth is on Iran's Payroll

Lauren Booth was amongst those participating in the boat trip to Gaza shilling for hamas. The purpose of the trip was a PR stunt to demonize Israel over its rather meek actions in response to hamas rocket attacks and weapons smuggling. While she was stuck there she stated that the Arabs of Gaza were starving and that grocery stores shelves were empty due to Israel's blockade, even as she was seen in a photo in a grocery store in Gaza with the shelves full. Of course Israel was not at all preventing food and fuel from reaching Gaza. Anyway why is Israel the only country in the world which is supposed to provide for the well being of a population which is waging war against it?

Well now Booth is raising money for a bigger boat in a project called "Aloha Palestine". Also it turns out that Booth is on Iran's payroll. Her bio on the Aloha Palestine site reveals this:
Lauren presents ‘In Focus’ on the Islam Channel and ‘Between The Headlines’ on Press TV.
Press TV is an Iranian news station.

Shocking Revelation

Mark Halperin of Time magazine reveals publicly what we have known because it was so blatantly obvious since the start of the campaign. That is, that the media was extremely bias in favor of Obama. Why didn't he speak up during the campaign? A lot good this admission does us now.

Instead of behaving like responsible adult professional journalists and reporters keeping a watch on our government, members of the media behaved like teenage girls towards their favorite pop stars. They were swooning and weeping and getting chills up their legs. It was sickening. Why couldn't Chris Matthews act like a man instead of a pubescent girl? If it didn't have such a profound effect on this country, the media's behavior during this election would have been comical.

Media bias was more intense in the 2008 election than in any other national campaign in recent history, Time magazine's Mark Halperin said Friday at the Politico/USC conference on the 2008 election.

"It's the most disgusting failure of people in our business since the Iraq war," Halperin said at a panel of media analysts. "It was extreme bias, extreme pro-Obama coverage."

Halperin, who maintains Time's political site "The Page," cited two New York Times articles as examples of the divergent coverage of the two candidates.

"The example that I use, at the end of the campaign, was the two profiles that The New York Times ran of the potential first ladies," Halperin said. "The story about Cindy McCain was vicious. It looked for every negative thing they could find about her and it case her in an extraordinarily negative light. It didn't talk about her work, for instance, as a mother for her children, and they cherry-picked every negative thing that's ever been written about her."

The story about Michelle Obama, by contrast, was "like a front-page endorsement of what a great person Michelle Obama is," according to Halperin.

The former ABC News political director acknowledged that some of the press coverage was simply reflecting the reality of Obama's presidential campaign.

"You do have to take into account the fact that this was a remarkable candidacy," Halperin said. "There were a lot of good stories. He was new."

New York magazine's John Heilemann, one of Halperin's co-panelists, offered another reason for all the positive press coverage Obama received.

"The biggest bias in the press is towards effectiveness," said Heilemann, who is authoring a book on the 2008 race along with Halperin.

"We love things that are smart."

Because Obama's campaign was generally so well run, he argued, the press tended to applaud even his negative tactics.

"We'll scold you for being negative," Heilemann said, "but if it seems to be working, the tone of your coverage becomes more positive."

Another of Halperin's fellow participants, Los Angeles Times writer Mark Barabak, disagreed more strongly with the Time writer's comments. Still, Halperin's general point met with little resistance

"I think it's incumbent upon people in our business to make sure that we're being fair," he said. "The daily output was the most disparate of any campaign I've ever covered, by far."

Dispute Over House in Hebron

Jews who legally purchased a house in Hebron from its Arab owner Faiz Rajbi, through a mediator, are being threatened with evacuation. The High Court of Justice took the side of Rajbi who claims he never sold the house to its Jewish owners although there was an audiotape of Rajbi recounting that he renovated the building of behalf of the mediator. The court however refused to hear the tape. Basically, the fix is in.

Because the nations of the world depend on Arab oil and money, are afraid of Islamic terrorists and are largely anti-Semitic anyway, the truth and history of the Mideast gets turned on its head. In this inversion of reality, the real inheritors of the land, Jews, become the colonial "occupiers", and the Arabs become the "occupied" who's lands have been "stolen". This even though it was the Arabs who had ethnically cleansed Jews after having had a centuries long presence in Judea and Samaria until Jordan illegally captured the territories during the War of Independence.

And the Israeli post-Zionist government, lacking in Jewish pride and fearful of standing up to the pressures of a hostile world, wages war against its own patriotic Jewish citizens who choose to exorcise their legal right to live in Judea and Samaria in legally purchased homes.

First, the facts: The House of Peace was acquired for more than one million shekels, by payments transferred through a mediator to the home’s owner, Faiz Rajbi. The payments were undertaken from March 2004 to March 2005. The agreement clearly stated that ownership of the house is transferred to the purchasers at the time of sale. These facts were also confirmed by the Israel Police’s labs.

There is a report ruling that the receipts presented by the Jewish purchasers for the payments they made are all authentic and are not suspected to be forgeries. The sale agreement itself is also not suspected to be forged in the view of the Israel Police.

In the phase between the purchase and its realization, the Jewish settlers locked the home and it stood empty for a month and a half.

As the house is located at a strategic site, near Kiryat Arba, and dominates the road from it to the Cave of the Patriarchs where tens of thousands of visitors pass yearly, the IDF entered the empty building and set up a dominating position on its roof.

After about two years, as part of the preparations for Jewish entry into the building, in light of the need to renovate it, more money was handed over to Faiz Rajbi through the mediator so that he renovate the home and make it fit for residence. The renovation work was carried out, and Jews moved into the home in March 2007.


Different versions

These facts are undisputed. In an audiotape, Rajbi recounts the fact that he renovated the building on behalf of the mediator. However, both the Prosecutor’s Office and the courts refused to listen to this tape for some reason. This enabled the Prosecutor’s Office to continue arguing against the move of residents into the house.

Therefore, both the Prosecutor’s Office and the High Court of Justice endorsed Mr. Rajbi’s claim that he never sold the house; however, this claim was disproven by the police probe. After he heard the audiotape, Rajbi changed his version of the story: He said he sold the house but annulled the sale back in 2004. This version is written in all documents submitted to the various courts. However, this version too was disproved by the police labs, which ruled that the receipts issued by him up until March 2005 are authentic.

Oppose Sharia Infiltration

As I keep emphasizing, Muslims have no loyalty to their respective countries or regard for their laws. Their loyalty is to the Muslim Ummah. They aim to replace western laws with sharia. This is why the west must halt Muslim immigration. As their population in western countries increases, the more demands are being made to institute sharia. Some European countries are past the point of no return when it comes to the islamization of their societies. A time will come when muslims will demand the "right" to have multiple wives, the "right" to pimp their 8 year old daughters by marrying them off to 40 year old men and if we object, we will be called islamophobic and told we are denying them their religious rights. And feckless officials will succumb. There is a limit to tolerance. We have to let go of the absurd idea that we must respect foreign cultures no matter how aberrant. And Islam is the most aberrant of all religions. Instead we should demand that immigrants adhere to the norms of western civilization or they are unwelcome. Those who are already here who advocate sharia should be deported and if they have become citizens their citizenship should be revoked and they should be tossed out.

As time goes on more and more Islamic leaders are not hiding their agenda and are calling for Islamic law. Let us examine three cases of this. The first taking place
in the US. He is a Phoenix Imam who is calling for Muslims not to follow the laws of the US government, but instead follow those of Sharia or Islamic law . Here is what Omar Shahin, president of the North American Imams Foundation has said.

“A Muslim must try his best to abide by the rulings of Sharia [Islamic law] whenever possible as much as he can. He should not allow himself to be liable to those western laws that contradict the clear-cut Islamic rulings".
Islamic laws include stonings for adultery and the extortion of non-Muslims. (Koran verse 9 29) If you ask me, it sounds like those laws and ours cannot coexist within the same country.

The next case is coming from Australia where in the past Muslim students petitioned the universities there to change every ones class schedule times to accommodate the pray times of Muslims. A recently released report shows that some Islamic leaders in OZ are condoning rape within a marriage (Koran verse 2 223), domestic violence (Koran verse 4 34),

Mikaeel' Jackson

The freakish Michael Jackson has converted to Islam and changed his name to Mikaeel. He is also walking around wearing a woman's veil. It shouldn't be a surprise that the deviant Michael Jackson would identify with a deviant religion. Pedophilia is acceptable in Islam.

The singer, who was raised as a Jehovah's Witness, converted to Islam in a ceremony at a friend's house in Los Angeles.

He is said to have sat on the floor and worn a small hat while an imam officiated.

According to The Sun, the ceremony took place while Jackson, 50, was recording an album at the home of Steve Porcaro, a keyboard player who composed music on his Thriller album.

The former Jackson 5 star was counselled by David Wharnsby, a Canadian songwriter, and Phillip Bubal, a producer, who have both converted.

A source said Jackson had appeared a "bit down" and added: "They began talking to him about their beliefs, and how they thought they had become better people after they converted. Michael soon began warming to the idea.

"An imam was summoned from the mosque and Michael went through the shahada, which is the Muslim declaration of belief."

Last year his brother, Jermaine Friday, suggested Jackson would convert having taken an interest in Islam since Friday's conversion in 1989.

"When I came back from Mecca I got him a lot of books and he asked me lots of things about my religion and I told him that it's peaceful and beautiful," said Friday.


Peaceful and beautiful beheadings, female genital mutilations, stonings, floggings, child rape, honor killings, bombings etc. etc.

"He read everything and he was proud of me that I found something that would give me inner strength and peace.

"I think it is most probable that Michael will convert to Islam.

"He could do so much, just like I am trying to do. Michael and I and the word of God, we could do so much."

The Israelis are not Occupiers

The British government has taken sides with Israel's enemies. Foreign secretary David Milliband says Europe should boycott Israeli produce which comes from Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria. Milliband refers to the "settlements" as "illegal". The very use of the word "settlements" is a provocative term meant to evoke images of Jews stealing land from so-called Palestinians by force. Contrary to popular myth, Jewish settlement is perfectly LEGAL and the Jews have not stolen anyone's land. Melanie Phillips explains how the law has been misinterpreted. In summary, Judea and Samaria and Gaza were never recognized as sovereign territories. Since the Jewish settlers moved there voluntarily and were not transferred by the Israeli government, Article 49 of the Geneva convention forbidding an occupying power from transferring its own civilian population into the occupied territory, does not apply in this case. Since Israel acquired the territories in a war of self-defense, it is entirely within its rights to hold on to that territory which was used to attack it. Also these territories were originally part of the British mandate and then illegally occupied by Jordan. The Israelis that live in Judea and Samaria built homes on empty spaces or purchased land from Arabs. And finally, it was Jews themselves who were ethnically cleansed after having lived in these lands for centuries and where some of the holiest sites in Judaism are located. So in no way shape or form are the Israelis occupiers nor have they stolen Arab land. But given that the Arabs have oil, they are far more numerous and threatening, Arab lies become "truth" in the eyes of an immoral, degenerate and cowardly international community. And innocent Israeli Jews suffer and are forced from homes and productive communities they have built because of an equally feckless Israeli government that refuses to stand up for its basic rights in the face of international pressure.

First, Article 2 of the Geneva Convention provides that the agreement applies ‘to all cases of partial or total occupation of the territory of a high contracting party’, or sovereign territory. Thus the Convention cannot apply to the West Bank, nor to East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip for that matter, because these have never been recognized as sovereign territory. As part of Mandatory Palestine, they never belonged to any sovereign state but were occupied and administered illegally by Jordan and Egypt between 1948 and 1967 after the Arab war of aggression against Israel in 1948.

Second, Article 49 of the Geneva Convention provides that an occupying power ‘shall not deport or transfer part of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies.’ This was designed to prohibit inhumane practices such as by the Nazis and the Soviets before and during the Second World War in forcibly transferring or deporting people into or out of occupied territories. But the Israeli settlers in the West Bank went there voluntarily. They have not been ‘deported’ or ‘transferred’ by the government of Israel. The only force Israel has used is in getting them out of Gaza. So clearly the Geneva Convention does not apply in any sense to the West Bank settlements.

Third, Israel is ‘occupying’ the West Bank (which on a day-to-day basis is not ‘occupied’ but ruled by the Palestinians) entirely within its rights under international law, which recognises the right of a country that has been attacked to occupy and retain land that continues to be used for belligerent purposes against it. Which is why the UN’s famous Resolution 242 was deliberately drafted to refer to Israel withdrawing from ‘territories’ rather than all the territories – and then only when the Arabs end their war against Israel.

Fourth, the West Bank is not Palestinian land in any sense. As said before, it was originally part of the British Mandate and then illegally occupied by Jordan. Nor have the settlers occupied individual Palestinians’ land, but have mainly built on empty space. I do not condone the actions of some of these settlers against their Arab neighbours, nor their attitudes; and I would like them to leave most of these territories, in Israel’s own interests. But the claim that Israel has ‘stolen’ Palestinian land is simply a lie.

Fifth and most important of all is something that is almost totally overlooked. It is generally assumed that Israel’s claim to the West Bank originated in 1967. Not so. Jews lived in many parts of it for centuries – some of these places amongst the holiest of Jewish sites – and were ethnically cleansed from it in the last century by Arab pogroms in places like Hebron. It was in recognition of this, the historic and inalienable connection of the Jews to this land, that the original Mandate for Palestine – which included what is now the West Bank and Gaza – instructed Britain to facilitate ‘close settlement’ by the Jews in the whole of Mandate Palestine – a commitment which the British proceeded systematically to betray – because of

the historical connection of the Jewish people with Palestine and the grounds for reconstituting their national home in that country.

Saudi Arabia is a Hell Hole

If ever there was a regime which should be blown off the face of the Earth, it is the medieval savages who rule saudi arabia. That country is among the most brutally misogynist. It makes me sick just to see these hideous saudi sheiks wearing those tablecloths on their heads. I'd like to see them get strangled with it. And don't dare tell me to be culturally sensitive. They deserve no respect. There is no polite way of describing the kind of evil Saudi Arabia represents. And to think that the west is financially beholden to this barbaric country. Take that regime out along with the Iranian mullahs and the world would be a better place.

Here is a review of the book “Karin in Saudi Arabia”, which is about the true story of a German woman who married a Saudi mutant and the marriage subsequently turned into a nightmare. Western women should steer clear of Saudi and Islamic men in general.

“Karin” is a real story of a German woman, who lived in Saudi Arabia for a while and fell in love with a Saudi. Later, this love turned into a devastating nightmare. The Saudi “Morality Police”, notorious for their bestial brutality, raped Karin and threw her in prison. Her crime was, she was driven alone downtown by a taxi-driver. Her German-Saudi baby son was taken away and she was deported to Cyprus without passport and money. Muna, a young Moroccan woman was luckier. She managed to smuggle herself and baby after one-night marriage with Sultan, the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia.

In Saudi Arabia, you can marry and divorce a woman in her absence. All you need is a religious man and two male witnesses. This is exactly what happened to Karin; she was married in her absence. Muna never saw any marriage or divorce papers.

Mimi and Najat were brutally stoned to death. Najat, a deaf-dumb was caught by the “Morality Police”, suspected of being a prostitute. In reality she was waiting for her brother to pick her up in front of shop window.

The Morality Police Chief quickly passed sentence on Najat. He wrote, among other things: “Najat was working as a prostitute and was caught in the very act of picking up a client. We advise that she be stoned to death…” Two muttawas (Marality Police) delivered the document to Prince Salman, the governor of Riyadh. He jotted down a verdict to match the suggestion, then signed it. Najat was to be publicly stoned to death the following Friday.

Mimi, a house-maid from the Philippines, was denounced by the wife of Karin’s lover. She was picked up by the “Morality Police” and also stoned to death. These stories happen very often, and people are defenseless towards them. There are no courts in Saudi Arabia, and the princes there possess absolute power.

Nisrin, a Bangladeshi woman, who married a Saudi, was deported and the marriage was annulled. Before that she was raped by one of those “Morality Police”. A Saudi who belongs to an important tribe, cannot just marry anyone.

Mohammed, a Syrian truck-driver had both hands amputated for allegedly stealing the truck he was driving.

Very few atrocities like the ones I’m reporting reach the international media. In March, 2002, the Saudi Morality Police prevented school girls from leaving a blazing building because they were not wearing the correct Islamic dress. As a result 15 girls were burned alive.” My stories are a pattern that happen day in day out.

When you study Islam; the Quran and Shari’a, and live in Saudi Arabia for a while, you find out that the Saudis are in fact applying the Islamic law. “The woman who commits adultery must be stoned to death.”(Quran, 36:18). “And (as for) the man who steals and the woman who steals, cut off their hands as a punishment for what they have earned, an exemplary punishment from Allah; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.” (Quran 5:38). For more details, check out http://europenews.dk/en/node/13862 and “Understanding Muhammad” by Ali Sina.

The book also shows that not only the Saudi regime and its religious fanatic establishment are oppressive, but also other groups in society: Saudi men oppress and ill-treat women, and Saudi men and women oppress abuse foreigners.

When I delivered the manuscript of this book to friends outside of Saudi Arabia, asking them to read it over, their response was uniform: they shook their heads in disbelief. Nobody in the civilized world seemed able to fathom the extent of the arbitrariness and atrocities to which victims in Saudi Arabia are subjected. To them, it was incredible. Some remarked that I was telling stories about the actions of monsters from another planet. They could not believe that any human could act as a Saudi corrupted by power does.

To Defend Western Civilization is to be Accused of "Hate"

Marc Charisse, editor of the Evening Sun of Hanover, Pennsylvania has decided to drop columnist Diana West from the newspaper because he says she “never met a Muslim she didn’t hate.” What a punk that Charisse is. Muslims of course are the greatest practitioners of hate in the world. Charisse's action only reinforces Diana West’s arguments about our freedoms being undermined in deference to islam. It's outrageous that defenders of western civilization have to fight our own media as well as the jihadists. Here is Diana West's response:

To the Editor:

I am responding to Editor Marc Charisse’s column about my work, a column I found striking for its mud-slinging crudity. In Charisse’s words, my work, the product of careful research and reporting, may be summed up thus: West “never met a Muslim she didn’t hate.”

There is no more apt word than “grotesque” to describe such an irresponsible and flippant mischaracterization of my weekly column, which very often grapples with the terrible, largely unspoken reality that Western liberties—freedom of conscience, freedom of religion, freedom of expression, equality before the law, including women’s rights and the rights of non-Muslims—are increasingly threatened by a growing deference to the laws of Islam. To underscore my point, I don’t write about “Muslims.” I write about Islam, the supremacist ideology constructed on laws (sharia) that justify censorship, repression, violence, inequality, and even maiming and murder of those whom the sharia leaves voiceless and powerless: dissenters, Muslim apostates, non-Muslims and women. I write about its agents—violent jihadists as well as soft jihadists, all of whom are working to extend the rule of this law across the non-Muslim world. And I write about politically correct non-Muslims who, as a public point of what is hailed as tolerance and inclusiveness have surrendered their common sense, their courage and, increasingly, their countries to the advance of this Islamic law.

“Pull the plug” on me if you like. But do not slander me or my work as a manifestation of hatred toward individuals. If anything, it is a manifestation of fear—fear that our liberties are not just under assault but have already been diminished, and are destined for still more restriction in that “sharp new subtext” Charisse says the recent presidential election has added “to the subject of Muslims.” Whatever that means.

I’ll take Charisse’s assessment of my work as “confrontational” as a compliment, even if he didn’t mean it that way. After all, what columnist worth his space, from Paul Krugman to Pat Buchanan, isn’t confrontational? But as for branding my ideas as “inappropriate” and “out of place”—well, isn’t that less the language of an American newsroom than an old Soviet politbureau?

Somali Immigration Fraud

The State Department is suspending its African refugee family reunification P-3 program because 80% of cases involving Somali family reunification cases are fraudulent.

AP Award-winning Shelbyville (Tennessee) Times-Gazette journalist Brian Mosely has once again done an important investigative piece. His article has both local and national implications vis a vis Somali refugees. Shelbyville and major locations in the US such as Nashville, Columbus, Ohio and Minneapolis, Minnesota have been affected. An estimated 90,000 Somalis refugees have been brought to the US, under a State department- administered program authorized by the Refugee Act of 1980.
We interviewed Mosely for the New English Review last February on his Times-Gazette series, “Somalis, Shelbyville and Severe Culture Shock in Shelbyville”. The series was about Somalis who moved there to work in a Tyson meat processing plant and created problems for this middle Tennessee community. As a result of his series in the Times Gazette, he was given an award for journalistic excellence by a state AP press group.

Ann Corcoran of the Refugee Resettlement Watch blog has posted, revelations from a US State Department fact sheet released last week on the suspension of the African refugee family reunification P-3 program in August 2008 because of evidence of wide spread fraud. She noted that “the State Dept. has admitted that 80% of Somali family reunification cases involve fraud.” That posting prompted Mosely to conduct his own investigations into the matter in Tennessee culminating in today’s Times- Gazette article,“Refugee program stayed after feds confirm fraud.”

Mosely found that Tennessee state refugee agency coordinators, a local volunteer agency and Tennessee immigrant advocacy groups involved with Somali refugee resettlement were dismissive of the US State Department findings of fraud in the African refugee family reunification program.

Who do these yenta immigrant advocacy groups think they are to appoint themselves arbiters of who should be let into this country? Who are they to decide that massive numbers of Muslim immigrants should come in and cause upheaval in once peaceful communities with their deviant islamic practices that we are then expected to accommodate or get sued for religious discrimination? Enough already. We have the right to protect our values and culture. Certain immigrants, mainly Muslim, simply will not assimilate and should therefore not be allowed in. Somalia is the country in which a 13 year old girl was stoned to death before a crowd of thousands because she was the victim of a gang rape. We do not need to import these kinds of backward ideas and practices.

Jewish Students Attacked at Berkeley

Once again Muslims play the victim card even as they are the violent aggressors. At Berkeley College, Jewish students enjoying a concert as part of a pro-Israel event on campus were assaulted and called nazis and dogs by Arab students who disrupted the concert by unfurling a palestinian flag on the balcony of the site where the concert was playing. Now the Muslim anti-Semitic students want to remove John Moghtader, a senator in the UC Berkelely student organization from office because he broke up the fight.

These kinds of disruptive and violent incidents against Jewish, pro-Israel and other politically conservative organizations by Muslim "students" are frequent occurrences at Berkeley and other campuses around the country. They are not there to get an education, but to agitate and spread pro-Palestinian and pro-Muslim propaganda and suppress the freedom of speech of views they don't agree with through shouting them down or by whatever other means necessary, including violence, to silence anti-jihad voices. Not only that, but the fact that many of them may even be outright terrorists, should cause the authorities to stop the influx of Muslim students into the country.

Arab Students at UC Berkeley Disrupt Israel Event, Attack Jews
by David Shamma
(IsraelNN.com)
Arab students disrupted a pro-Israel event at the campus of the University of California at Berkeley Thursday night, unfurling a large Palestinian flag in front of a crowd of hundreds of supporters of Israel who were enjoying a pro-Israel hip-hop concert. The event was sponsored by the Zionist Freedom Alliance student group.

The Arab students unfurled the large flag on a balcony above the outdoor site where the concert was taking place, inciting a provocation right in front of the concert-goers, who were enjoying the event as part of the campus' Israel Liberation Week. Several Jewish concertgoers went into the building to ask the Arabs to remove the flag – but were viciously attacked, with one male concert goer knocked down from a blow on the back of his head, witnesses said.

College alumnus Gabe Weiner, who was helping run the concert, was assaulted by the leader of the anti-Israel group, Husam Zakharia, who also attacked one of the performers, Yehuda De Sa. The fight was finally broken up by John Moghtader, a senator in the UC Berkelely student organization. Police were called in and arrested Zakharia along with others from his group, charging them with battery. Witnesses said that the Arab students shouted anti-Semitic curses and epithets throughout the incident, calling the Jews “Nazis” and “dogs,” and threatening to kill them. According to one witness, as many as 20 anti-Israel students participated in the attacks.

In a statement, the Zionist Freedom Alliance said “we call on state officials, the President of the University of California, the Chancellor, the Dean of Students, faculty, and the student body to take a unified stand against the continued harassment of Jewish and pro-Israel students on this campus, particularly by members of Students for Justice in Palestine,” the anti-Israel group whose leaders began the incitement and attacked the concertgoers.

Pro-Israel students at UC Berkeley have long complained of the anti-Israel and anti-Semitic harassment they have been subject to. Tikvah, a Jewish student group at the college, displayed on its web site numerous examples of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic graffiti, with anti-Israel elements defacing property with their screed. Jewish students complained that the only media coverage given to the event, in the Berkeley campus newspaper, was one sided. “Funny how the battery citation against Husam of SJP isn't even mentioned [in the article], and the comment which purports to be from an objective bystander is actually from one of the top people in Students for Justice in Palestine,” commented Ariel, one of the concertgoers.

Meanwhile, the anti-Israel group is planning to file a petition to remove from office Moghtader, who tried to break up the fight.

Freeing Terrorists

Ehud Olmert plans to release 250 terrorists from Israeli prisons as a goodwill gesture for the Islamic holiday of Eid al-Adha. Releasing terrorists from prison seems to be a regular gift the Israeli government provides every Muslim holiday. Now when can we expect goodwill gestures from the Arabs on Hanukkah, Rosh Hashana, Yom Kippur and passover? The dhimitude and lack of Jewish pride on the part of the Israeli government makes me sick. Why are they making goodwill gestures at all to those who want to kill their countrymen? Let alone releasing mass murderers or those who participated in some way to the murder of Jews, no less. And furthermore, receiving nothing in return. Not even the freedom of Gilad Shalit.

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has promised to release yet another 250 terrorists from prison, as a goodwill holiday gesture to PA chief Mahmoud Abbas.

Olmert made the promise in a meeting with Abbas in Jerusalem on Monday afternoon.

MK Ruby Rivlin (Likud) said about the news of the planned release, "We are tired of Olmert and his political tricks. He is no longer relevant to the diplomatic process and he may not obligate himself in the name of the State of Israel."

Indor: 180 Have Been Killed

Col. (res.) Meir Indor, head of the Almagor Terror Victims Association, says that 180 people have been murdered by released terrorists. He has long warned that at least a third - "and probably more than half" - of released terrorists return to terrorist activity, "thus creating another cycle of terror and bloodshed."

Indor has directed a call to the ministers of the Kadima party to vote against the decision, explaining: "Olmert is trying to cause Kadima, headed by his political rival Tzipi Livni, to lose the coming elections by tying their hands to various extremist and strange decisions that he is making... Olmert wishes to empty out the prisons of Palestinian terrorists, and empty out the country of Jewish land."

Gabbai: Hurts Shalit's Chances

MK Eli Gabbai (National Religious Party) said that the decision harms kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit's chances for release. "This gesture, from an irrelevant Prime Minister to the irrelevant Palestinian Authority, will make no impression on anyone in the PA. The only thing it will do will be to harm, once again, Shalit's chances to be freed, and to increase, once again, the number of terrorists Hamas will demand for his freedom."

Noam Shalit, Gilad's father, similarly attacked Olmert's decision, saying it will lead Hamas to "double and triple their demands."

Olmert and Abbas - both of whom are likely not to be in office in a matter of months - also discussed the upcoming Palestinian Authority elections, two months away. Abbas has said he will not run, though this is not certain.

Olmert said he would order the release of 250 terrorists in time for the Eid al-Adha holiday, three weeks from now. The holiday commemorates Abraham's willingness to sacrifice his son Ishmael at G-d's command, although the Bible clearly states that the son in question was Isaac. Ishmael is considered to be the Patriarch of the Moslems, while Isaac's son and grandchildren were Jacob and the Twelve Tribes of Israel.

The Eid al-Adha festivities, which follow the annual Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca, last for 2-3 days, or more, depending on the country.

Will Obama Pressure Israel Over its Nukes?

I was afraid of something like this. The Obama administration may try to pressure Israel into giving up its nuclear weapons as a bargaining chip to convince Iran and the rest of the Middle East to give up on the idea of developing nuclear weapons. Of course Israel wouldn't and could never relinquish its nuclear weapons, that would be suicidal. But just the idea that the Obama administration would attempt to put Israel in a position of coming across as the bad guy responsible for nuclear proliferation in the Middle East, is outrageous. In a world that has absolutely not one iota of concern or understanding for Israel's security needs, this of course is how the situation would be portrayed. It shows a potential Obama foreign policy team without moral clarity, which can't distinguish between nuclear weapons in the hands of a free, democratic Israel simply trying to defend itself in a sea of hostility, as opposed to those same weapons in the hands of its aggressive, hateful terrorist enemies vowing to destroy it. Israel's nuclear weapons are the only thing that keeps the balance of power with her far larger enemies. It may be the only thing enabling it to survive. Considering Israel's miniscule size, what is to stop the Arabs from starting another conventional war or even attacking it with biological and chemical weapons without the fear of Israel retaliating with nukes? Are people advising Obama so stupid as to not understand Israel's need for nuclear weapons or are they purposefully malicious?

The Middle East is in danger of accumulating large stocks of nuclear material over the next decade that could be used to produce over 1,700 nuclear bombs, a U.S. research center has projected in a newly released report.

The Institute for Science and International Security, headed by David Albright, one the world's top experts on nuclear weapons and the prevention of nuclear proliferation, recently released its report urging president-elect Barack Obama to take a number of measures to avoid such an outcome, including convincing Israel to halt production of its nuclear weapons.

"The Obama administration should make a key priority of persuading Israel to join the negotiations for a universal, verified treaty that bans the production of plutonium and highly enriched uranium for nuclear explosives, commonly called the Fissile Material Cutoff Treaty (FMCT)," the institute argued. "As an interim step, the United States should press Israel to suspend any production of fissile material for nuclear weapons. Toward this goal, the United States should change its relatively new policy of seeking a cutoff treaty that does not include verification. The Bush administration's rejection of the long-standing U.S. policy of requiring verification was a mistake that the incoming administration needs to rectify."

Though Israel has never publicly admitted it has nuclear arms, it is largely believed to possess about 200 nuclear warheads. Iran has defied the international community for years by running a nuclear program which many observers fear may allow it to obtain nuclear arms in the future.

More recently, several Middle Eastern countries including the United Arab Emirates, Jordan, Egypt and Turkey announced their intention of building nuclear power plants.

Though most countries said they want to build reactors in order to reduce their dependency on fossil fuels as their sole source of energy, the institute's researchers believe they also wish to create a nuclear infrastructure in their own countries in light of the possibility that Iran will obtain nuclear arms.

In 2020 several nuclear reactors in the Middle East are expected to be completed, producing more than 13 tons of plutonium. The institute says a nuclear device requires only eight kilograms.

The institute believes the White House should strive to have Egypt, Iran and Israel ratify the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). It also has stated that the U.S. should discourage the reprocessing of irradiated power reactor fuel both domestically and internationally

The Muslim Cultural Invasion

Because of the Islamic invasion of the west, rape has reached epidemic proportions. Yes I know that white western men commit rape, but the difference is that in our cultures it is a crime. In Islam rape is culturally acceptable and sometimes legally sanctioned as punishment for women who dress immodestly. Also rape victims rather than the perpetrators of rape are imprisoned and punished in Islamic countries. This is why I won't apologize for opposing massive Muslim immigration. We ought to not be accepting immigrants with deviant cultural practices. They have nothing of value to offer us. We should not be allowing in those who deem it acceptable to murder their wives, sisters and daughters in the name of "honor" or those who stone girls to death for being rape victims or who practice female genital mutilation.

There are too many fools who think that islam is just another religion with a few extremists who don’t represent the real islam. You try to explain and they tell you about their nice muslim neighbors down the street. Well the Cherry Hill neighbors of the muslims who tried to blow up Fort Dix thought they were nice people as well. And of course the promoters of multiculturalism will tell you all religions have their extremists and that its bigoted to single out muslims for criticism because of what some of their co-religionists do. The fact that no other religion is regularly committing beheadings, global terrorism and warfare to conquer and subjugate or kill infidels, stoning 13 year old rape victims to death among other barbaric customs, falls on deaf ears. There seems to be no getting through to these people. Why should we even have to explain the obvious about what islam represents and the grave threat it poses?

Obama Endorses Saudi "Peace" Plan

Given the president-elect's team of foreign policy advisors and their world outlook, dangerous times are ahead for America and Israel. The security that we've had since 9/11 will dissipate as our enemies become emboldened and resort to increased adventurism in the face of a novice president and his appeasement minded advisors. One thing's for sure, Israel will be thrown to the wolves. These are people who's idea of a sound foreign policy is abandoning our allies and currying favor with our enemies.

Worst of all would be Zbigniew Brzezinski, who was an unmitigated disaster as foreign policy advisor to Jimmy Carter. This man and the administration he represented committed foreign policy errors of catastrophic proportions in which we are still suffering the effects of three decades later. Brzezinski and Carter facilitated the fall of our ally the Shah of Iran and ushered in the ayatollahs. Carter even proclaimed at the time that the ayatollah khomeini represented freedom and democracy. Either he and the administration were malicious in intent by defending this evil madman and his brutally oppressive islamic revolution, or they were incredibly stupid. Either way, I cannot understand why Brzezinski is still sought out for advice on foreign affairs and is considered an expert given that he created such a mess thirty years ago. That is, unless of course, Obama himself has malicious intentions, mainly toward Israel.

A bipartisan group of senior foreign policy advisers urged Obama to give the Arab plan top priority immediately after his election victory. They included Lee Hamilton, the former co-chairman of the Iraq Study Group, and Zbigniew Brzezinski, a Democrat former national security adviser. Brzezinski will give an address tomorrow at Chatham House, the international relations think tank, in London.

Brent Scowcroft, a Republican former national security adviser, joined in the appeal. He said last week that the Middle East was the most troublesome area in the world and that an early start to the Palestinian peace process was “a way to psychologically change the mood of the region”.

Advisers believe the diplomatic climate favours a deal as Arab League countries are under pressure from radical Islamic movements and a potentially nuclear Iran. Polls show that Palestinians and Israelis are in a mood to compromise.

The advisers have told Obama he should lose no time in pursuing the policy in the first six to 12 months in office while he enjoys maximum goodwill.

Obama is also looking to break a diplomatic deadlock over Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons technology. A possible way forward, suggested last spring by Dennis Ross, a senior Obama adviser and former Middle East envoy, would be to persuade Russia to join in tough economic sanctions against Iran by offering to modify the US plan for a “missile shield” in eastern Europe.

President Dmitry Medvedev signalled that Russia could cancel a tit-for-tat deployment of missiles close to the Polish border if America gave up its proposed missile defences in Poland and the Czech Republic.

Ross argued in a paper on How to Talk to Iran that “if the Iranian threat goes away, so does the principal need to deploy these [antimissile] forces. [Vladimir] Putin [the Russian prime minister] has made this such a symbolic issue that this trade-off could be portrayed as a great victory for him”.

Ross and Daniel Kurtzer, a former American ambassador to Israel, accompanied Obama on a visit to Israel last July. They also travelled to Ramallah, where Obama questioned Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian leader, about the prospects for the Arab plan.

According to a Washington source Obama told Abbas: “The Israelis would be crazy not to accept this initiative. It would give them peace with the Muslim world from Indonesia to Morocco.”


This tells us that at best, Obama is dangerously naive. He and his advisors have no clue as to what the conflict is about and what drives the islamists to reject Israel. We are dealing with a foreign policy team that believes they are too intelligent and sophisticated to see things in moral absolutes. There is no good and evil and that every conflict can be settled through sitting down at the bargaining table. And its clear they intend to bargain away parts of Israel. But just as in Munich in 1939, it will not lead to peace.

Jewish Blog Carnival

This week's edition of the Jewish blog carnival Haveil Havalim is featured at West Bank Mama.

Victory For Muslims in the Culture War

To those liberal fools promoting multiculturalism, Muslims are not here to have equal rights and to peacefully co-exist with us within a pluralistic society. Their purpose here is to dominate us, to subjugate us. They are here to replace our constitution with sharia law. To hell with this Obama "citizen of the world" crap. I am American. It's time to proclaim loudly and proudly that we are superior to these barbaric cultures and stop pretending all cultures are equally valid. We have values worth fighting for and preserving. Our soldiers are sacrificing themselves abroad only for us to be losing our country from within. It's time to say to immigrants that either they assimilate or they get the hell out. And stop worrying about being called a racist. Islamosupremacists believe they should be given preferential treatment. We need to fight them every step of the way to make certain that no special privileges are granted to muslims.

Somali Muslims who worked or are still working at the Gold'n Plump Inc. chicken processing plant, are to receive $365,000 in a settlement from a religious discrimination lawsuit they filed because they were fired for having taken prayer breaks. What right do they have to skip out on work and leave their work load for non-Muslims to take up? They get away with it because unfortunately we have enough dhimmis willing to indulge the islamosupremacists demands, and unwittingly or not, aiding their soft jihad. This unfortunate decision by the Swift company to cave in, essentially grants special privileges to muslims in America.

MINNEAPOLIS — Under a settlement to a federal lawsuit, up to 100 Somali Muslims who are current or former workers at Gold'n Plump Inc. will receive a total of $365,000.

The settlement was filed in Minneapolis on Friday. It sprang from allegations of religious discrimination at the company's chicken processing plants in Cold Spring and Arcadia, Wis.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed lawsuits against St. Cloud-based Gold'n Plump and the Work Connection Inc., an employment agency in St. Paul, which handled some hiring for the plant.

Under the settlement, Gold'n Plump agreed to pay $215,000 to workers who were terminated for taking prayer breaks.

The Work Connection will pay $150,000 to workers who were asked to sign a form acknowledging that they might be required to handle pork, which many Muslims consider unclean....

The Iranian Nuclear Threat

Here is Shimon Peres yet again showing he is out of touch with reality. During an interview with FOX news he explains why he believes Iran will give up its nuclear weapons:

“The minute a barrel of oil goes down to its real cost, the Iranians will have to make a choice either to provide bread and butter for their children or to provide enriched uranium for the prestige of their leaders,” Peres told FOX News in a wide-ranging interview Wednesday.

“Until now they had enough money to do the two things; no more.”


And what makes Peres assume Iran wouldn’t choose the latter option? Since when do the mullahs give a shit about the welfare of their own people? This is a country which during the Iran-Iraq war sent children to throw themselves on land mines to clear the way for the Iranian army. This is a regime which regularly imprisons and tortures dissidents and beats and arrests young people on the streets for dressing western and having western hair styles. What makes Peres believe ahmadinejad and the mullahs would place the welfare of the Iranian people over having nuclear weapons and the power it would bring to the regime?

“They want to govern the Middle East religiously and they will throw away all the existing systems [and] regimes,” he said, arguing that a solid international front against Iran could force the county to change.

“The Iranians are taking advantage of the fact that the world is divided,” Peres said. “Once there is a unified policy vis a vis Iran, you will see Iran changing.”


And why suddenly is the world going to stop being divided and do what it hasn’t been doing up to this point, which is to unify against Iran to prevent it from obtaining nuclear weapons? The man is delusional. Does he believe this because the messiah has been elected US president?

Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad has a different take on the situation. He says the Iranian regime is determined to obtain nuclear weapons and is controlled by an ideology committed to the destruction of Israel. He says Israel will not tolerate a nuclear armed Iran and implied military action can and will be taken should other methods fail to prevent that outcome.

Israel will not tolerate a nuclear Iran, Maj.-Gen. (res.) Amos Gilad, the head of the Defense Ministry's Diplomatic-Security Bureau, has stressed to The Jerusalem Post in an unusually hard-hitting interview.

For now, Israel is backing diplomatic and economic efforts to thwart the Iranians, Gilad added, but it doubts these will work and it is keeping all options open.

Asked about the complexities of any resort to military action, particularly since Iran has built its facilities to withstand a repeat of the IAF's 1981 destruction of Saddam Hussein's nuclear reactor at Osirak, Gilad replied, tellingly, that domestic critics 27 years ago said the Osirak raid "couldn't be done. And the fact is, it succeeded."

"Iran is a country with smart people that have capabilities," he noted. "It really would be a considerable challenge. Come the day, if and when this or that option is adopted, what will matter is the outcome."

Gilad was speaking to the Post at a time when some senior figures in the defense establishment have indicated in private forums that Israel might have to begin to prepare for the reality of Iran achieving its nuclear goals.

But he dismissed this notion and was adamant that there was no tendency whatsoever in the defense establishment to accept a nuclear Iran.

He said the assessment, which he shared, was that Israel could not be reconciled to a nuclear Iran - not only because it might press the button, but because the very fact of this regime having that weaponry would constitute an existential threat.

Saudi Arabia Is Our Enemy

Shimon Peres makes a fool of himself fawning over Saudi king Abdullah during that farce known as the UN interfaith summit, simply because he remained in the room while an Israeli was speaking. Why is an Arab heaped with praise and seen as "moderate" simply for abiding the most basic of common courtesy's in the international arena? Abdullah, the organizer of this interfaith summit, presides over a country where every religion other than Islam is banned, bibles are confiscated upon entering the country, the building of churches and synagogues are forbidden, non-Muslims are forbidden to enter Mecca and Medina. If he was serious about tolerance and co-existing in peace with other faiths, he would start by reforming religious apartheid laws in his own country, as well as reformation of other barbaric laws such as gang rape as punishment for women who dress immodest or un-islamic. But of course, the point of this summit was precisely the opposite of its stated intention. The true purpose is to convince gullible western dhimmi governments to enforce the UN resolution outlawing criticism of Islam, within their countries.

What is Saudi Arabia up to? There are some unignorable indications that the royals are now leaning toward the West as never before.

According to a Pakistani diplomatic envoy, Riyadh is now playing an active intermediary role between the U.S. and Pakistan, shuttling aid packages and negotiating with Pakistani militants at Washington’s behest. With Islamabad more ambivalent than helpful in taking out militants who attack American forces in Afghanistan, the U.S. has turned to the Saudis, who seem to have reined in their own domestic terrorists over the past few years.

Since a 2003 al Qaeda attack on a residential compound in Riyadh, the Saudi government has instituted a multi-pronged approach to crack down on the threat from within. They’ve done things such as put up websites to counter pro-terrorism fatwas. They’ve also launched an unforgiving, punitive national security plan, without regard for due process or human rights. The results are undeniable. In October, the interior minister announced that almost 1000 people suspected of having ties to al Qaeda will soon be tried. There are almost 7000 suspected or convicted terrorists presently in Saudi jails. After a recent trip to the Kingdom, during which he visited a “rehabilitation center for extremists,” British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said,

The Saudis are committed to tackling the extremists who poison young people with their evil ideology of terror. I was glad I had the opportunity to witness how they are seeking to change the attitude of young people who would be vulnerable to falling back under the spell of extreme groups on being released.

Gordon Brown is not alone in his enthusiasm. Just yesterday, at a UN General Assembly meeting, Israeli President Shimon Perez described a Saudi peace initiative as “inspirational and promising — a serious opening for real progress.” He went on to praise Saudi King Abdullah thusly:

Your Majesty, the King of Saudi Arabia, I was listening to your message I wish that your voice will become the prevailing voice of the whole region, of all people. It’s right, it’s needed, it’s promising.

Indeed, the occasion for the meeting is a Saudi-led UN interfaith conference on religious tolerance. And it is with that realization that the irony begins to give the game away. As Ali Al-Ahmed, director of the Institute for Gulf Affairs, put it, Saudi Arabia “is the world headquarters of religious oppression and xenophobia.” There are, of course, no churches or synagogues on Saudi soil. In fact, the Sunni-dominant Kingdom systematically discriminates against its Shia Muslim minority in a brutal manner the West would never tolerate. So, why the UN conference?

MSNBC is Pravda

I read that Chris Matthews, who works for PRAVDA, also known as MSNBC, said that he will do everything he can as a journalist to make sure the Obama administration is a success. In the first place this bum who gets shivers up his leg, is the furthest thing from a journalist. He is a propagandist. It is not supposed to be the job of people working for media outlets to shill for any administration and make sure it succeeds. Their job is supposed to be to report facts, for better or worse. The media, at least MSNBC, has served notice that they have every intention of providing cover for obama's failures and spinning and distorting to make him look good. We won't be hearing the truth about his presidency any more then we had about him during the campaign.

The Stealth Jihad

A review of Robert Spencer's latest book, "Stealth Jihad", about the Islamic plan to conquer America not by terrorism, but through infiltration of our public schools, government, financial institutions, colleges, law enforcement and so forth. Here are some of the ways in which this is being done:

* by taking advantage of political correctness among government and law enforcement officials to keep them from even speaking about Islamic jihad, much less taking steps to resist it

* by demanding (ever more shrilly) accommodating of Muslim practices in public places, universities, schools, workplaces, and even banking and finance

* by smearing and silencing anti-jihad and anti-terror voices in America and worldwide

* by using "hate speech" laws to try to stifle all analysis of the elements of Islam that jihadists use to justify violence

* by transforming public school textbooks into tracts that proselytize for Islam

* and even by infiltrating the highest levels of the American government

Spencer also explains how the stealth jihadists can be stopped, detailing a ten-point plan that is far from politically correct, but may be our only option for survival as a free people. Here, then, is a much-needed wake-up call about a sinister agenda that could do nothing less than destroy the United States -- unless Americans discard political correctness and face the threat squarely and fully. Stealth Jihad shows how we can, and how we must.

Advancing Islamic supremacism in America -- by stealth:

* Terrorism without terror: the stealth jihadist plan to wage a "grand jihad" aimed at "eliminating and destroying Western civilization from within"

* How stealth jihad efforts and jihad violence work hand- in-glove for the same goal

* The main player in the stealth jihad: the shadowy, sinister, internationally powerful Muslim Brotherhood

* The partners: the "moderate" American Muslim organizations that are actually part of the stealth jihad

* How Islamic law teaches warfare against and the subjugation of unbelievers -- by any means possible

* Islamic law: the many ways in which it contradicts American law and custom

* How the common practice of Islamic organizations labeling all critics of jihadist activity as "bigots" and "hatemongers" helps advance the stealth jihad

* Washington's politically correct policy of avoiding all mention of "Islam" and "jihad" in connection with terrorism -- how it not only plays into the hands of the stealth jihadists, but was actually adopted on the advice of Muslim Brotherhood operatives

* How Islamic groups worldwide are using "hate speech" laws to try to criminalize free discussion of Islamic terrorism -- even in the United States

* The legal jihad: how stealth jihadists use the courts to battle against their critics -- and anti-jihadists in general

* Your house is our house: how efforts to force American businesses to change their practices to accommodate Islamic law are part of the stealth jihad -- and have stepped up considerably in recent years

* Prayer returns to public schools! (As long as it's Islamic prayer, it's just fine)

* How efforts at accommodation of Muslims again and again result in Islamic dominance and supremacism

* Separate and unequal: Islamic separatism in America

* Don't want to pay interest on your credit card? Simple: just tell the company you're Muslim! How Western financial institutions are bending over backwards to accommodate Islam

* Readin', writin', and subjugatin' the infidel: The stealth jihad in American schools

* How American public school textbooks have been Islamized under the noses of education authorities -- and often with their naive complicity

* Education or indoctrination? The Islamic ideological straitjacket in American universities

* Saudi money and what it buys in American universities today

* Compromised: Islamic terror groups' infiltration of the FBI, CIA, and Pentagon


This falls on deaf ears to liberals who not only mock us as paranoid bigots, but insist islam is just another religion like all others and give us the usual litany that all religions have their extremists and not all muslims are extremist etc. It is to no avail trying to explain to them that islam is not simply a personal faith, but an expansionist, totalitarian political ideology which seeks to conquer and subjugate or kill the rest of us. What I’m saying should be more than apparent by this time. What can we do about those whether in government, business or ordinary citizens who simply refuse to listen to warnings from the Robert Spencers amongst us?

More of That Liberal Tolerance at Work

Aren't you in awe of the way in which Obama is inspiring America's youth? A freshman from Alaska attending Augsburg College in Minneapolis was called a racist and assaulted on election night by four black girls for wearing a McCain/Palin button. She suffered from blurred vision and a concussion from being punched in the eye. Of course the perpetrators were the real racists. One need not even say anything critical or unflattering about their messiah to provoke the wrath of crazed Obamabots, its simply enough just to favor his opponents and not express undying devotion to the "one".

An Augsburg College student and Sarah Palin supporter from Alaska was beaten on election night while walking to her dorm and was called a racist by a group of four young women because she had on a McCain/Palin presidential campaign button, authorities and the victim said.

Annie Grossmann, a freshman on the Minneapolis college's hockey team, suffered blurred vision and is thought to have had a concussion from a punch in the eye, but declined medical attention, she said.

Through her mother, Grossmann, 18, of Delta Junction, reported the assault to campus security the next morning, and Minneapolis police were notified that afternoon. No arrests have been made.

Grossmann said she was in a dorm lobby with a handful of fellow Republicans watching election returns with "a bunch of Democrats around next to me, cheering [Barack] Obama on and rubbing it in our faces."

Once it was obvious that Obama was going to win, Grossmann said, she left the building alone shortly after 9:30 p.m. and headed to her room.

Under a skyway connecting the two buildings, four women "bigger than I am" came up to her, she said.

"One approached me and got in my face and called me racist because I had the pin on. That really ticked me off, but I kind of left it alone because she was so much bigger than I am," said Grossmann. She is 5 feet 2 and weighs 120 pounds, and played boys high school hockey in Alaska. "The girls in the background were just a little bigger than me. They were mocking me from the sidelines.

"I didn't say anything. ... This one [bigger] girl grabbed me by the shoulders and was holding me. After about five minutes, I just wanted to get out of there."

Grossmann, who is white, said she told the women, who were black, "You guys don't even know me. There's no reason to think I'm racist."

At that point, she said, she pushed the bigger one in the group, and "she punched me, and the back of my head hit a brick wall."

In yet another instance of liberal peace and tolerance, a 14 year old girl conducted an experiment in which she wore a "McCain girl" t-shirt to school one day. As a result, she was called stupid, told she should die, and many comments about how she should be killed. She was told she should be crucified and that she should be burned with her shirt on for being a "filthy rich Republican". The next day she came into school with an "Obama girl" t-shirt and was told that her brain had come back. Obivously they don't teach civics courses in public school anymore. Where are these kids getting the idea that they can behave this way towards those who disagree with them? I'm sure it comes from their enlightened liberal parents and teachers. Isn't it amusing that liberals will insist on tolerance when it comes to any sort of deviant foreign cultural practices by immigrants, yet they have no such tolerance toward people who merely have differing political views and support different candidates then they do. Heaven help America if the future of safeguarding our freedom and democracy is in the hands of these young stalinists. Hopefully we'll have far more Catherine Vogts.

As the media keeps gushing on about how America has finally adopted tolerance as the great virtue, and that we're all united now, let's consider the Brave Catherine Vogt Experiment.

Catherine Vogt, 14, is an Illinois 8th grader, the daughter of a liberal mom and a conservative dad. She wanted to conduct an experiment in political tolerance and diversity of opinion at her school in the liberal suburb of Oak Park.

She noticed that fellow students at Gwendolyn Brooks Middle School overwhelmingly supported Barack Obama for president. His campaign kept preaching "inclusion," and she decided to see how included she could be.

So just before the election, Catherine consulted with her history teacher, then bravely wore a unique T-shirt to school and recorded the comments of teachers and students in her journal. The T-shirt bore the simple yet quite subversive words drawn with a red marker:

"McCain Girl."

"I was just really curious how they'd react to something that different, because a lot of people at my school wore Obama shirts and they are big Obama supporters," Catherine told us. "I just really wanted to see what their reaction would be."

Immediately, Catherine learned she was stupid for wearing a shirt with Republican John McCain's name. Not merely stupid. Very stupid.

"People were upset. But they started saying things, calling me very stupid, telling me my shirt was stupid and I shouldn't be wearing it," Catherine said.

Then it got worse.

"One person told me to go die. It was a lot of dying. A lot of comments about how I should be killed," Catherine said, of the tolerance in Oak Park.

But students weren't the only ones surprised that she wore a shirt supporting McCain.

"In one class, I had one teacher say she will not judge me for my choice, but that she was surprised that I supported McCain," Catherine said.

If Catherine was shocked by such passive-aggressive threats from instructors, just wait until she goes to college.

"Later, that teacher found out about the experiment and said she was embarrassed because she knew I was writing down what she said," Catherine said.

One student suggested that she be put up on a cross for her political beliefs.

"He said, 'You should be crucifixed.' It was kind of funny because, I was like, don't you mean 'crucified?' " Catherine said.

Other entries in her notebook involved suggestions by classmates that she be "burned with her shirt on" for "being a filthy-rich Republican."

Some said that because she supported McCain, by extension she supported a plan by deranged skinheads to kill Obama before the election. And I thought such politicized logic was confined to American newsrooms. Yet Catherine refused to argue with her peers. She didn't want to jeopardize her experiment.

"I couldn't show people really what it was for. I really kind of wanted to laugh because they had no idea what I was doing," she said.

Only a few times did anyone say anything remotely positive about her McCain shirt. One girl pulled her aside in a corner, out of earshot of other students, and whispered, "I really like your shirt."

Egyptian Lawyer: Raping Israeli Girls is Form of "resistance"

An Egyptian lawyer encourages Arab men to sexually harass Israeli girls wherever they are, as a form of "resistance". The message he wants to send is, "leave our lands so we won't rape you". As it is, women in the muslim world are not considered their own persons, or even human at all, they are the property of men. And since the rape of even Muslim women is acceptable for various reasons, this especially holds true for Jewish women traveling in Arab countries.

Translated by Memri:
Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian lawyer Nagla Al-Imam, which aired on Al-Arabiya TV on October 31, 2008.


Interviewer: Egyptian lawyer Nagla Al-Imam has proposed that young Arab men should sexually harass Israeli girls wherever they may be and using any possible method, as a new means in the resistance against Israel.

[...]

Interviewer: We have with us the lawyer Nagla Al-Imam from Cairo. Welcome. What is the purpose of this proposal of yours?

Nagla Al-Imam: This is a form of resistance. In my opinion, they are fair game for all Arabs, and there is nothing wrong with...

Interviewer: On what grounds?

Nagla Al-Imam: First of all, they violate our rights, and they "rape" the land. Few things are as grave as the rape of land. In my view, this is a new form of resistance.

Interviewer: As a lawyer, don't you think this might expose Arab youth to punishment for violating laws against sexual harassment?

Nagla Al-Imam: Most Arab countries... With the exception of three or four Arab countries, which I don’t think allow Israeli women to enter anyway, most Arab countries do not have sexual harassment laws. Therefore, if [Arab women] are fair game for Arab men, there is nothing wrong with Israeli women being fair game as well.

Interviewer: Does this also include rape?

Nagla Al-Imam: No. Sexual harassment... In my view, the [Israeli women] do not have any right to respond. The resistance fighters would not initiate such a thing, because their moral values are much loftier than that. However if such a thing did happen to them, the [Israeli women] have no right to make any demands, because this would put us on equal terms – leave the land so we won't rape you. These two things are equal.

[...]

I don’t want young Arab men to be interrogated. I want these Zionist girls with Israeli citizenship to be expelled from our Arab countries. This is a form of resistance, and a way of rejecting their presence.

Iran Tests Missile Which Can Reach Europe

Iran test fires a missile which can reach as far as southeastern Europe. Obama is much too arrogant to realize that he is in way over his head. How does he intend to respond when talks with the mullahs inevitably fail to prevent Iran from obtaining nukes? Just what will negotiations be about? What can we possibly offer Iran that would induce it to give up the power which nuclear weapons will bring it?

TEHRAN, Iran – Iran said it successfully test-fired a new generation of long range surface-to-surface missile on Wednesday — one that could easily strike as far away as southeastern Europe with greater precision than earlier models.

The Sajjil is a solid fuel high-speed missile with a range of about 1,200 miles, Defense Minister Mostafa Mohammed Najjar said on state television. At that range, it could easily strike Iran's arch-foe Israel and go as far as southeastern Europe.

Solid-fuel missiles are more accurate than the liquid fuel missiles of similar range currently possessed by Iran. The country has had a solid-fuel missile with a shorter range — the Fateh, able to fly 120 miles — for several years.

The Islamic Republic News Agency said the test was conducted Wednesday, and television showed the missile being fired from a desert launching pad.

Najjar said the missile was a defensive weapon and not a response to threats against Iran. He didn't name any country, but Israel has recently threatened to take military action against Iran to stop Tehran from developing a nuclear bomb.

Najjar said the missile was part of a "defensive, deterrent strategy ... specifically with defensive objectives."

The defense minister, quoted by Iran state television, said the two-stage missile with two solid-fuel engines has "an extraordinary high capability" but gave no further details. He did not say whether it was capable of carrying a nuclear warhead.

Israel's Foreign Ministry refused comment about the missile test.
