Obama Was Behind Cameron’s Vicious Attack on Israel

Obama is working underhandedly to screw over Israel despite the recent public charade that Obama and Bibi are now pals and Obama is committed to Israel’s security. A charade that Bibi willingly participated in and Jewish liberals fell for. I would prefer Obama to remain openly hostile to Israel. I do not believe the British Foreign Office was “surprised” or disturbed by Cameron’s remarks. The Foreign Office is similar to our own State Department which is anti-Israel to its core. This does not of course excuse the pathetic David Cameron.

BREAKING: OBAMA BEHIND UK’S CAMERON’S ANTI-ISRAEL ATTACK

Pam Geller, Atlas Shrugs
Cameron’s speech in Turkey slammed Israel. The British Foreign Office was blamed, but they’re claiming they were as surprised as anyone.
Behind the scenes I hear from good sources that it was Obama’s people who put the slamming of Israel into Cameron’s speech. This ties right into my book (just out this week).

Just as Blair was Bush’s “puppy,” Cameron is Obama’s lapdog.

This, once again, points to Obama’s obsession with destroying the Jewish state. Obama is warring against Israel. When Sean Hannity asked me on his show if I thought Obama was an anti-semite, I said yes. He is.

The JCcom here:

[...]
No, it was the comments about Israel that were so mind-blowingly ill-informed.

Cameron said “the Israeli attack on the Gaza flotilla was completely unacceptable” and went on to refer to Gaza as a “prison camp”.

Israeli troops tried to board the Marmara peacefully after it ignored many warnings not to head to the Gaza Strip. Cameron forgets that five boats docked peacefully in Ashdod. Only the Marmara disobeyed the warnings. But then it was full of Turkish-backed IHH terrorists who wanted (and we have the recording) to perpetrate terror against Israel.

Cameron also forgets that those armed terrorists on the Marmara who attempted to lynch and kidnap the Israeli commandos who boarded the boat and who did not use violence until they themselves were attacked.

As for Gaza being a ‘prison camp’ (with the implication from the context that it is Israel’s fault) – why does Cameron ignore the thousands of tons of food and necessities that go into Gaza every week? And the sick who come out to be treated at Israeli hospitals? The only reason why free movement is not permitted between Gaza and Israel is because of Hamas terror in Gaza. It is not Israel who throws Fatah members blindfolded off roofs to a certain death. And it is not Israel who is holding Gilad Shalit and depriving him of everything to which he is entitled as a Prisoner of War — It is Hamas.

As one who campaigned for the Conservatives I believe they are the party that will be the fairest for Israel. But this Cameron speech hardly fills me with confidence.

UPDATE: I may have maligned the FCO who reportedly were as surprised as anyone to see the Cameron comments about Israel. It seems that Obama may have been the one who fed him the drivel — and that he willingly swallowed

The New York Times Defends the IHH

More New York Times lies and deliberate misinformation in service of Israel’s genocidal enemies.

New York Times: Not Just Anti-Israel But Pro-Islamist.

By Barry Rubin, The Rubin Report

The New York Times–with the exception of some honorable reporters in the field (you know who you are)–never ceases to amaze one in the spectacularly biased writings of those back at headquarters. Here’s one that’s particularly remarkable, a real piece of advocacy in which the reporter does everything possible to justify flotilla ships trying to run the blockade of the Gaza Strip.

He also selectively discusses the IHH sponsor of the previous flotilla, leaving out all the evidence (presented in my articles and elsewhere) of its radical and terrorist connections, including U.S. court documents. I explained this for the Times more than five weeks ago but they paid no attention and they still cannot find any of this evidence!

The article even includes a pro-IHH video without any balancing video, of which a number are easily available. There is virtually no hint that the militants on board had earlier shouted slogans advocating genocide for Jews, declared their intention to be Jihad martyrs, or attacked and kidnapped the arriving soldiers.

In addition, this article was written after Germany banned the IHH’s local branch for supporting terrorism but doesn’t even mention this fact. (Yes, I know the German government said it was a separate group but that is a purely formal organizational point.)

And on top of that the article was also written after the terms of the blockade were changed, with the approval of the U.S. government and personal endorsement of President Barack Obama no less. These new regulations only exclude military and dual-use items. There is no mention of the fact that circumstances have changed and thus any new flotilla ship can hardly be humanitarian since there is no limit on consumer goods.

Nor does it mention that the purpose of the flotillas–even before, but most obviously now–is not to help the people of Gaza but to ensure the easy import of weapons and militarily useful goods for a radical, antisemitic, anti-American repressive regime that opposes a two-state solution and openly proclaims its intention of committing genocide on Israel’s Jews.

If this kind of thing appeared on a left-wing blog (or an Iranian or Syrian newspaper) it would at least not be surprising. But this is the New York Times. I no longer write a response like this one to correct errors in the Times coverage, but rather to point out that this is not the great newspaper (whatever its flaws) that once was considered America’s best. It is, at least on issues concerning Israel (again with honorable exceptions) a propaganda sheet, a shill for totalitarian and mendacious forces.

For other examples, see the Times’ remarkably deceptive portrayal of an Egyptian antisemitic extremist as a moderate, or the imbalance in its op-ed page. If you want to read a serious, balanced, full-service print newspaper pick up the Washington Post instead.

British PM Sides With the Forces of Evil

Britain's PM David Cameron has turned out to be another pathetic, worthless anti-Israel, muslim-appeasing piece of crap British politician. When it comes to Israel, there is no difference between the Tories and Labor. Israel seriously needs to regard England as an enemy.

Cameron in a disgusting, pandering speech to the turks, urged the country's acceptance into the EU and derided anyone who objects as misunderstanding islam, although it is clear that Cameron has no understanding of islam. He's oblivious to the fact that turkey under erdogan has become a radical islamic state which is aligning itself with the enemies of the west and increasingly pushing sharia at home. Yet Cameron praises turkey as being a bridge between east and west. And no groveling to muslims would be complete without attacking Israel. And here Cameron throws raw meat to the wolves with his disgusting incitement against Israel with regard to the jihad flotilla, repeating the lies and blood libels of a fake humanitarian crisis in Gaza and condemning Israel for justifiably intercepting the mavi marmara and the justified killing of those nine jihadis.

Cameron stands with turkey which essentially committed an act of war against Israel when it sent a boat full of genocidal jihadists to attack Israeli soldiers on the high seas and the IHH declared their intent to massacre Jews before embarking on their jihadist mission. Instead Cameron rebukes Israel in the most harsh manner for the IDF merely defending itself from a lynch mob using knives, guns and steel pipes to attack them. What kind of a perverse policy is this? Why are western leaders siding with evil?

I take consolation in the knowledge that the pro-islam, anti-Israel policies of the British government will only result in the rapid downfall of their own nation and not Israel. We know what is supposed to happen to those who curse Israel.

Weep for Britain: 1940 this is not
Melanie Phillips
Tuesday, 27th July 2010



When David Cameron became Britain’s Prime Minister, I warned that he would turn out to be even worse than Labour on the related issues of Israel and the global threat from Islamism to Britain and the west. This was because Cameron had no knowledge of or interest in foreign affairs, and so was always likely merely to reflect the most politically expedient views he encountered – which, given the current poisonous attitude within the British establishment and intelligentsia, were likely to push him into appeasing Britain’s mortal enemies in the Islamic world and dumping on Israel, Britain’s strategic ally in that great struggle.

But even I did not foresee just how cynical Cameron would turn out to be -- and how dangerous therefore to the British national interest. Today’s truly shocking and quite astoundingly stupid speech in Turkey has now laid bare the fathomless shallowness and frightening ignorance and idiocy of Britain’s new Prime Minister.

Declaring himself a fervent supporter of Turkey’s bid to join the EU, Cameron declared that those who opposed this bid fell into one of three categories: protectionists; those who believed wrongly in a ‘clash of civilisations’ between east and west, whereas in fact

Turkey can be a great unifier, because instead of choosing between East and West, Turkey has chosen both;

or

those who wilfully misunderstand Islam

because they

... see no difference between real Islam and the distorted version peddled by the extremists.

Astonishingly, Cameron thus totally ignored the fact that Turkey’s Prime Minister, Recep Erdogan, is no secular Ataturk but an Islamic extremist; and as a result Turkey is changing from a secular state and strategic ally of the west into an Islamist tyranny and a new strategic enemy of the west. Here is what Turkish political economy professor Dani Rodrik wrote recently in the Wall Street Journal (£):

I no longer recognize Turkey, the country where I was raised and spend most of my time when I am not teaching in the U.S. It wasn't so long ago that the country seemed to be taking significant strides in the direction of human rights and democracy... But more recently, the same government has been responsible for a politics of deception, dirty tricks, fear, and intimidation... It's clear now that Turkey is no longer the liberalizing, emerging democracy under the AKP that it was only a few years ago. It's time the U.S. and Europe stopped treating it as such—both for their own sakes, and for the sake of the Turkish people.

Into which category of prejudice would Cameron place the horrified Professor Rodrik – Turkish protectionist, Turkish culture warrior or Turkish Islamophobe?

Or what about the alliances Erdogan has been forging with Islamic terror regimes such as Hamas, Hezbollah, Syria and Iran – and not forgetting his warm overtures to Russia? Is this what Cameron regards as evidence that Turkey is playing the role of ‘great unifier’ between east and west?

The Rush to Create a Fakestinian State

Between the Obama administration upgrading the PA mission which would allow the terror regime to fly its flag in Washington and now France upgrading its diplomatic ties with the "palestinians" along with saying it supports the creation of state of "palestine" by 2012, it appears there is a plan for the quartet to either force its own solution on Israel or is prepared to recognize a unilateral declaration for "palestinian" statehood.

The west is in a rush to give a state to a gang of terrorists who have never shown any inclination to live in peace with Israel nor to even allow its own people to live in freedom. Yet the Kurds who really are a stateless, distinct ethnic group with their own language and culture and are a violently repressed minority in each of the countries they reside, and who have shown an inclination to be able to run a peaceful democratic state as they have in Northern Iraq. Yet there is no western plan to create Kurdistan. Where is the logic in any of this? The Kurds are far more deserving than the fakestinians.

Haaretz:
France upgrades diplomatic ties with Palestinians
Foreign minister: France supports creation of 'viable, independent, democratic Palestinian state' by early 2012.

The French government has upgraded its diplomatic relations with the Palestinian Authority to help speed the creation of a Palestinian state, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner said Monday.

What was previously titled the Palestinian delegation to France will now be referred to as the Palestinian mission, Kouchner said in a press statement.

And the senior Palestinian diplomatic official in France will now be referred to as the ambassador, chief of mission, instead of general delegate.

Kouchner said that France supported the creation of a "viable, independent, democratic Palestinian state" by the first quarter of 2012.

The diplomatic upgrade was carried out "to contribute to the realization of this objective and to guarantee its credibility," he said.

Fakestinian Welfare Leeches

The fakestinians are the world’s biggest welfare leeches. And while the idiot western governments provide money for hamas and fatah weaponry and mansions for their members, real humanitarian castastrophes are met with indifference as children in the third world suffer from disease and starvation.

Pakistan Aids the Taliban

Those leaked military files revealed that our wonderful allies in the Pakistani regime were aiding the taliban. We are providing Pakistan with billions of dollars which in turn they are using to kill American troops in Afghanistan. I want to know where are all those filthy skunks in the foreign policy establishment, academia and the media who claim our relationship with Israel is a problem, falsely blame Israel for putting American troops in danger and whine about the money we provide to them? Why aren’t they writing books and making speeches about how our relationship with Pakistan is doing grave harm to America and that we should cut them off? Israel actually saves the lives of American soldiers through its military technology.

And why isn’t Obama outraged and Hillary screaming at Pakistan’s dictator for the death of American soldiers which the Pakistini regime facilitated ? Why doesn’t this engender a fraction of outrage from the Obama administration that Jewish housing projects in Jerusalem do?

Screw you Walt, Mearsheimer, Chas Freeman and the rest of the likeminded Israel-hating crowd. In your blind anti-Semitism you ignore the real dangers to America.

UK and European Hypocrisy on "War Crimes"

The Europeans, lead by the British, threw Israel to the wolves regarding the Goldstone report and yet they are responsible for massive civilian casualties in Afghanistan. Because they chose not to back Israel and instead to placate the muslim world, it may come back to haunt them.

The fools who lead Israel should have dismissed Goldstone out of hand. Instead they appeased the UN jackals and conducted an investigation, even throwing some of their own soldiers under the bus for good measure. All in a vain attempt to appease implacable enemies.

Via Israpundit:

Leaks on mass civilian casualties in Afghanistan could form basis for Goldstone style prosecutions against US, Britain and other coalition countries

This weekend’s release of thousands of secret official files about coalition operations in Afghanistan paints a harrowing picture of the fog of war, most troubling of all of the accidental killings by our soldiers of hundreds of innocent civilians – revellers at wedding parties, kids in school buses, ordinary people going about their daily business who tragically found themselves in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Given that the Taliban systematically hides behind the civilian population this sort of thing is, of course, inevitable. Nonetheless, it is understandable that the revelations by Wikileaks have caused embarrassment to the governments of all the coalition countries.

But for those coalition countries in Europe – Britain first among them – who are currently cheerleading the passage of the Goldstone Report on Gaza through the United Nations this is more than an embarrassment. In the light of Goldstone, it represents an outright threat to the security of their soldiers on the ground as well as to their national interests in international tribunals.


In my experience, the MidEast crowd at the British Foreign Office and its equivalents elsewhere in Europe tend to be a little on the slow side. So, let me spell this out so there is no ambiguity.

International laws, norms and procedures to a great extent operate on the basis of precedent. So when Britain and other European countries allowed the Arab dictatorships to push a report through the United Nations specifically designed to criminalise the Israeli military’s attempts to deal with terrorists hiding behind a civilian population in Gaza, they simultaneously set a precedent for all countries, including their own.

Now that it has been revealed — via official documents — that British soldiers, for example, have been involved in exactly the same kind of operations against exactly the same kind of terror groups using exactly the same tactics and resulting in exactly the same kind of outcomes in terms of the loss of civilian lives, British soldiers and ministers could face exactly the same kind of censure and penalties as Israel.

This could range from the purely verbal assaults of the kind mounted by European governments during Operation Cast Lead right up to prosecutions in international tribunals or through universal jurisdiction laws in countries around the world that have adopted them.

Of course, I am using Goldstone as both a concrete precedent in its own right, but also as a proxy for the whole panoply of terror-appeasement policies and norms that outfits such as the British Foreign Office have allowed to develop, or have actively supported, in the international community over decades.

The Foreign Office and its equivalents are thus proved not merely to have been engaged in the vilest of discriminatory hypocrisy over Israel, Goldstone and all that it represents, they are shown to have been deliberately and wilfully allowing a depraved anti-Israeli agenda to take precedence over their own national interests.

I didn’t realise that undermining one’s own military or one’s own national interests was what our diplomats were being paid to do. Perhaps they would care to comment?

Sharia in New Jersey

A judge in New Jersey decided that a muslim man who raped his wife shouldn't be punished because islamic law permits a husband to rape his wife if she refuses sex. Can you believe that sharia law is being accepted in 21st century America? I wonder if any feminists raised their voices in protest. We should be able to expect the law to protect abused women but instead a politically correct dhimmi judge essentially gives muslim men a license to rape. Fortunately the decision was overturned by an appellate court.

Sharia in New Jersey: Muslim husband rapes wife, judge sees no sexual assault because Islam forbids wives to refuse sex
Muhammad said: "If a husband calls his wife to his bed [i.e. to have sexual relation] and she refuses and causes him to sleep in anger, the angels will curse her till morning" (Bukhari 4.54.460).

He also said: "By him in Whose Hand lies my life, a woman can not carry out the right of her Lord, till she carries out the right of her husband. And if he asks her to surrender herself [to him for sexual intercourse] she should not refuse him even if she is on a camel's saddle" (Ibn Majah 1854).

And now a New Jersey judge sees no evidence that a Muslim committed sexual assault of his wife -- not because he didn't do it, but because he was acting on his Islamic beliefs: "This court does not feel that, under the circumstances, that this defendant had a criminal desire to or intent to sexually assault or to sexually contact the plaintiff when he did. The court believes that he was operating under his belief that it is, as the husband, his desire to have sex when and whether he wanted to, was something that was consistent with his practices and it was something that was not prohibited."

Oliver Stone Empathizes With hitler and stalin and Complains About "Jewish Domination of the Media"

There are many leftist scumbags in Hollywood; those who hate America, defend child rapists etc. But the most vile and evil monster of them all is oliver stone, lover of history's mass-murdering dictators as well as supporter of current dictators chavez and castro and now apparently Iran's ahmadinejad, who he recently met with. Not surprisingly with his track record that he is also a rabid anti-Semite.

Stone is airing a 10 hour historical revisionist documentary for Showtime which empathizes with hitler and stalin. Stone, in an interview with the Guardian said that Jewish control of the media prevents hitler from being placed in context as well as there being so much focus on the holocaust, saying that hitler killed millions more Russians. Never mind that Jews were the victims of a planned genocide and that 2/3 of European Jewry was exterminated. That is the reason for the focus on the holocaust. He also said that Israel has fucked up American foreign policy, never mind the global jihad being waged by islam. Never mind our "friends" the Pakistanis and saudis have been funding the jihadis who are murdering Americans. And he says the Jewish lobby is the most powerful in Washington. No, in fact the most powerful lobby would be the muslim and arab lobbies.

Hollywood is the latest bastion of the left, along with the media and academia where open anti-Semitism is now acceptable.

Oliver Stone: ‘Jewish-Dominated Media’ Prevents Hitler from Being Portrayed ‘in Context’



Back in January there was a warning. American Hating/Chavez loving director announced his ten-part documentary for Showtime, called “Oliver Stone’s Secret History of America,” by promising a different look at Adolf Hitler and Josef Stalin:

Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and it’s been used cheaply,” Stone said at the conference. “Stalin has a complete other story. Not to paint him as a hero, but to tell a more factual representation. He fought the German war machine more than any person.I’ve been able to walk in Stalin’s shoes and Hitler’s shoes, to understand their point of view. You cannot approach history unless you have empathy for the person you may hate.”

Today, the other shoe dropped. In an interview with the Sunday Times of London, he blamed the Jewish-Dominated media for preventing Hitler from being portrayed in context.

“Hitler was a Frankenstein but there was also a Dr Frankenstein. German industrialists, the Americans and the British. He had a lot of support.”

He also seeks to put his atrocities in proportion: “Hitler did far more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people, 25 or 30m.”

Why such a focus on the Holocaust then? “The Jewish domination of the media,” he says. “There’s a major lobby in the United States. They are hard workers. They stay on top of every comment, the most powerful lobby in Washington. Israel has f***** up United States foreign policy for years.”

Why a focus on the Holocaust, because the Jews were singled out to be rounded up and killed only because of their religion. That’s not to say that Russians did not die, in fact more Russians died than people from any other country. So his “more damage to the Russians than the Jewish people” is merely an attempt to diminish the genocide Shoah by counting up dead bodies. No wonder why the director is a defender of Hugo Chavez who has put the Venezuelan Jewish Community in danger.

As for Stalin, now that Stone “walked in his shoes” he should realized that as leader of the Soviet Union Josef walked in Hitler’s shoes. It is estimated that he killed between 20-30 million of his own people.

Stone’s father was Jewish, and it makes one wonder what Oliver Stones dad did to the young boy to make him spread Anti-Jewish stereotypical lies that the the Jews control the media and/or US foreign policy

Ground Zero Mosque Imam Unmasked

More information is coming out about the terrorist ties of the man behind the ground zero mosque, imam rauf, which the media refuses to investigate and New York’s political establishment doesn’t care to know. Read also about how these muslim brotherhood front groups are engaging in stealth jihad to destroy America from within and institute sharia law. Rauf’s wife is linked to an islamic paramilitary group, the islamic circle of North America, which is an arm of Pakistan’s Jamaat e-Islami. Why do we allow this crap to take place on our own soil? What is wrong with us that we sit passively by while our enemies boldly wage war against us from within our own nation? What has become of us as a nation that we are so terrified of aggressively confronting and resisting the jihadis?

Rauf’s Dawa from the World Trade Center Rubble
Meet the Ground Zero Mosque imam’s Muslim Brotherhood friends

Andrew C. McCarthy, National Review Online

He is also the author of a book called What’s Right with Islam Is What’s Right with America. But the book hasn’t always been called that. It was called quite something else for non-English-speaking audiences. In Malaysia, it was published as A Call to Prayer from the World Trade Center Rubble: Islamic Dawa in the Heart of America Post-9/11.

Now it emerges that a “special, non-commercial edition” of this book was later produced, with Feisal’s cooperation, by two American tentacles of the Muslim Brotherhood: the Islamic Society of North America and the International Institute of Islamic Thought. The book’s copyright page tells the tale:

Both ISNA and IIIT have been up to their necks in the promotion of Hamas, the Muslim Brotherhood’s ruthless Palestinian branch, which is pledged by charter to the destruction of Israel. In fact, both ISNA and IIIT were cited by the Justice Department as unindicted co-conspirators in a crucial terrorism-financing case involving the channeling of tens of millions of dollars to Hamas through an outfit called the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development. For the last 15 years, Hamas has been a designated terrorist organization under U.S. law.

Dawa, whether done from the rubble of the World Trade Center or elsewhere, is the missionary work by which Islam is spread. As explained in my recent book, The Grand Jihad, dawa is proselytism, but not involving only spiritual elements — for Islam is not merely a religion, and spiritual elements are just a small part of its doctrine. In truth, Islam is a comprehensive political, social, and economic system with its own authoritarian legal framework, sharia, which aspires to govern all aspects of life.

Too much has been exposed about Imam Rauf’s deceit, terror ties and real agenda, with much still to be revealed. And so the morphing mosque narrative is taking on a new direction. I debate these shadowy figures, and the narrative changes everyday.

The new front for the Islamic Supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero is Sharif El-Gamal, the developer of Soho Properties. The Imam is “out of town,” or at least that’s what New York news outlets have been told.

The new face is the businessman and pragmatist, Sharif El-Gamal. But on preliminary analysis, Sharif El-Gamal may be worse than Rauf.

J Street and the Leftist Media

The left is hateful and intolerant in the extreme, and will act to destroy anyone who opposes or becomes and obstacle to their toxic agenda. Lenny Ben-David felt the wrath of the left wing media when he exposed J Street’s funding sources which proved it to be an anti-Israel organization. Worse than J Street’s anti-Israel agenda is their deception and dishonesty in touting themselves as pro-Israel. Those of us who are truly pro-Israel were well aware of J Street’s deceit.

Did I Get ‘Journolisted’?
After writing an expose of J Street, I was the target of character assassination from Journolist members — including a violent threat from Spencer Ackerman.

by Lenny Ben-David, Pajamas Media

This week, the Daily Caller published transcripts from the Journolist, a listserv comprised of several hundred liberal journalists. Among other things, the transcripts show a coordinated effort to bring a halt to articles and analyses about Barack Obama’s decades-long relationship with his pastor, radical Chicago preacher Jeremiah Wright.

According to the Daily Caller:

At several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate.

One “journalist” wrote to his colleagues:

In my opinion, we all have to do what we can to kill ABC [the leading newshound on the Obama-Wright relationship] and this idiocy in whatever venues we have.

Also according to the Daily Caller:

Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists. … What is necessary is to raise the cost on the right of going after the left. … In other words, find a rightwinger’s [sic] and smash it through a plate-glass window. Take a snapshot of the bleeding mess and send it out in a Christmas card to let the right know that it needs to live in a state of constant fear. Obviously I mean this rhetorically.

I was not surprised by the account.

Reading the report, I realized Ackerman and his friends used this same strategy against me, attacked me as a racist, and attempted to put me through the plate-glass window because of my exposés on the supposedly “pro-Israel” lobbying organization J Street.

All of a sudden, at the end of October 2009, a pack of howling bloggers started nipping at my heels, accusing me of racism. I had written for Pajamas Media a fact-filled exposé about J Street’s founders, and about some of the contributors to the J Street PAC who were well-known pro-Saudi, Palestinian, Arab-American, and pro-Iranian activists. I added a few State Department Arabists for good measure. How could this group call itself “pro-Israel?” I asked.

Abbas Demands U.S. Guarantee on Borders

Abbas demands a U.S. commitment on borders of a future state before he agrees to talks with Israel. What a joke. Isn't the very purpose of negotiations to determine what the borders will be? Whoever heard of making guarantees about the final outcome BEFORE one negotiates. Clearly abbas has no interest in compromise but in making demands to which he expects the US to pressure Israel into implementing. This isn't a peace process but an extortion process. Anyway the arabs referred to as the "palestinians" have no right to any part of Israel.

JPost:
'US commitment before direct talks'
By ASSOCIATED PRESS AND KHALED ABU TOAMEH
21/07/2010
Abbas won't talk until Palestinian state's borders are guaranteed.

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas has told his Fatah movement he wants a more specific US commitment on the borders of a future Palestinian state before agreeing to direct talks with Israel.

Abbas says he received assurances from US President Barack Obama, but that they weren't clear enough. He says he expects enormous pressure, but that he will not go "blindly" into negotiations.



Abbas spoke late Tuesday at a closed-door meeting with Fatah leaders. His comments were published in a Palestinian daily and confirmed by his adviser Sabri Saidam.

The PA president is under pressure from the US administration to agree to direct negotiations with Israel as soon as September, when the four-month deadline for the proximity talks expires.

Next week, two more significant bodies – the Fatah Central Committee and the PLO Executive Committee – are scheduled to hold meetings in Ramallah to discuss the status of the peace talks and issues related to internal reforms in Fatah and the PA.

The two bodies are also expected to back Abbas’s position regarding direct negotiations.

The Leftist Media Colluded to Destroy Sarah Palin

More disgusting revelations are coming out about the media conspiracy to aid Obama during the 2008 campaign. The media’s contempt for Sarah Palin is a reflection of their hatred of the American people, our values and America itself. The msm was essentially Obama’s campaign headquarters. Obama need not have bothered with an official campaign team since they had most of the networks and newspapers to do their dirty work. These malcontents should stop masquerading as journalists and admit they are advocates for a cause, the cause of transforming America into a socialist nation and are an arm of the democratic party. The damage they are doing to this nation is nothing less than evil.

JournoListers Conspired To Destroy Sarah Palin Day McCain Picked Her

By Noel Sheppard, Newsbusters

New e-mail messages published by the Daily Caller Thursday show a coordinated effort by the JournoList’s members to destroy Sarah Palin the moment she was named John McCain’s running mate on August 29, 2008.

Some even discussed how the former Alaska governor’s decision to have a Down Syndrome baby rather than abort it could be used against her.

As the attacks ensued, the Nation’s Chris Hayes wrote, “Keep the ideas coming! Have to go on TV to talk about this in a few min and need all the help I can get.”

Witness America’s so-called journalists conspiring to destroy a woman most of the nation had not even heard of yet:

Ryan Donmoyer, a reporter for Bloomberg News who was covering the campaign, sent a quick thought that Palin’s choice not to have an abortion when she unexpectedly became pregnant at age 44 would likely boost her image because it was a heartwarming story.

“Her decision to keep the Down’s baby is going to be a hugely emotional story that appeals to a vast swath of America, I think,” Donmoyer wrote.

Politico reporter Ben Adler, now an editor at Newsweek, replied, “but doesn’t leaving sad baby without its mother while she campaigns weaken that family values argument? Or will everyone be too afraid to make that point?”

Will everyone be too afraid to make that point? This man is currently the National Editor of Newsweek.com!

Muslims Want to Reconquer Spain

I can’t help but smile over the irony of such an anti-Semitic country which falsely accuses Israel of being “occupiers” who should relinquish territory to those they claim are the rightful owners, the “palestinians”, are finding their own country being claimed by the muslims as belonging to them.

Spain Debates Burqa Ban; Muslim Immigration Soars



by Soeren Kern, Hudson Institute

The lower house of the Spanish Parliament is debating a proposal to prohibit the wearing of body-covering burqas and face-covering niqabs in all public spaces in Spain. The measure, which follows similar moves by nearly a dozen local and regional governments across Spain, marks a major escalation in the national debate over Muslim immigration and the role of radical Islam in Spain.

Critics say the rate of Muslim immigration to Spain now far exceeds the rate of assimilation. And polls seem to support that claim. According to a Pew Global Attitudes Survey, for example, religion is central to the identity of Spanish Muslims. Nearly 70 percent of Spanish Muslims identify themselves primarily as Muslim rather than as Spanish. This level of Muslim identification in Spain is similar to that in Pakistan, Nigeria, and Jordan, and even higher than levels in Egypt, Turkey, and Indonesia.

There is now a widespread feeling among Muslims that the territories they lost during the Spanish Reconquest still belong to them, and that they have a right to return and establish their rule there. This is based on the Islamic idea that territories once occupied by Muslims must remain under Muslim domination forever.

The majority of Muslim immigrants to Spain are from Morocco, Algeria and Pakistan. They mostly live in clusters along the Mediterranean coast. Fully one-third of Spain’s Muslims live in the north-eastern autonomous region of Catalonia, the capital of which is Barcelona. Tarragona, one of the most important cities in Catalonia, has also become ground-zero for Salafist Islam in Spain.

Salafism is a branch of revivalist Islam that calls for restoring past Muslim glory by re-establishing an Islamic empire across the Middle East, North Africa and parts of Europe. Salafists view Spain as a Muslim state that must be reconquered for Islam.

Syria Bans islamic Veil

How is this for irony. Western "feminists" are more islamic than the bashar assad regime in Syria. Those who claim to fight for women's equality defend the misogynist islamic practice of shrouding women.

Syria Bans Face Veil, British Minister and American Feminists Defend the Burqa
2010 July 19

by Phyllis Chesler


Syria bans the veil as American feminists continue to paint it as a liberating choice.

Syria—yes, Syria—Bashar Asad’s Syria–has just banned full face veils in their universities.

According to Syria’s minister of higher education, “All female students wearing the full face veil will be barred from Syrian university campuses … the niqab contradicts university ethics and compromises the government’s secular identity.”

Amazingly, the Minister confirmed that “hundreds of primary school teachers who were wearing the niqab at government-run schools were transferred last month to administrative jobs.”

Other Arab, Muslim countries with long and hard-won secular identities are now also under attack by fundamentalists and Islamists who want to face-veil women or at least to have them wear headscarves. Thus, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey are now also at risk. Jordan’s government has tried to discourage face veils by “playing up reports of robbers who wear veils as masks. Turkey also bans Muslim headscarves in universities, with many saying “attempts to allow them in schools amount to an attack on modern Turkey’s secular laws.”

Israel Complies With the UN

Once the number one priority during combat operations becomes protecting the lives of the enemy’s “civilian” population instead of victory and doing everything possible to limit the casualites of your own soldiers as much as possible, then you have already surrendered, you have already lost the next war before it begins. The same is true with us in Afghanistan, we have essentially surrendered due to the rules of engagement which have been established. Furthermore by throwing your own soldiers under the bus to placate the international community certainly will lower morale in the IDF. Israel might as well just surrender the entire country.

JPost:
IDF commits to reducing civilian casualties after Cast Lead
By LAHAV HARKOV
21/07/2010
In report to the UN, Israel responds to Goldstone, restricting use of white phosphorous, indicting soldiers who violated international law and installing Humanitarian Affairs Officers.

Israel has committed to reduce the number of civilian casualties in future wars in a new response to the Goldstone Report released by the Foreign Ministry.

The IDF has committed to a number of operational changes in its combat doctrine to minimize civilian casualties, including restricting the use of white phosphorous and integrating a Humanitarian Affairs Officer in each combat unit, as well as defining new regulations regarding the destruction of private property when necessary.

In addition to the report, the Foreign Ministry released an interview with the head of its international law department, Arthur Lenk, explaining the reasoning behind the IDF's decisions.


The report, titled "Gaza Operation Investigations: Second Update," also mentions criminal investigations into the actions of IDF soldiers, and the establishment of a commission assigned to examine Israel's mechanisms for investigating alleged violations of the international Law of Armed Conflict, which is led by retired judge Yaakov Turkel.

"Israel's numerous investigations have produced significant results, particularly during the last several months," the report said. "Israel's Military Police Criminal Investigative has opened...47 criminal investigations into specific incidents relating to the Gaza Operation." The report mentions two IDF soldiers who were indicted for putting a Palestinian minor at risk, and a soldier who is supected of kiling a Palestinian civilian.

"In addition to the criminal indictments of IDF soldiers, the Military Advocate General has not hesitated to pursue discipline of senior military officers, including a Brigadier General and a Colonel in one case, and a Lieutenant Colonel in another," the report added.

The report also addresses an incident in which the IDF used "smoke-screen munitions containing white phosphorous" in an UNRWA field office compound, injuring three and causing significant property damage.

"The investigation did find that the actual damage to the compound as a result of the smoke-screening shells was more extensive than the IDF had anticipated," the report explained. "Following reports of the damage, the IDF immediately imposed revised restrictions on the use of smoke-screening munitions containing white phosphorous near sensitive sites. These restrictions were in place through the remainder of the Gaza Operation."

In addition, "the IDF is in the process of establishing permanent restrictions on the use of munitions containing white phosphorus in urban areas," according to the report.

In order to prevent future civilian casualties, "the new written procedures require the assignment of a Humanitarian Affairs Officer integrated in each combat unit beginning at the battalion level and up," the report added. The Humanitarian Affairs Officers' responsibilities include "advising the commanding officer and educating the soldiers with regard to: the protection of civilians; civilian property and infrastructure; the planning of humanitarian assistance; the coordination of humanitarian movement; and the documentation of humanitarian safeguards employed by the IDF."

The 37-page report was delivered to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday, Reuters reported.

The United Nations has not reacted to the Israeli report.

The Media Conspired to Protect Obama

This story exposes how members of the press collaborated with each other to protect Obama when the Jeremiah Wright story broke. Not that this comes as a surprise that the media was deliberately acting as Obama's public relations arm, its what we suspected all along, but now there is documented evidence. The good news is that the corruption, treachery and lies on the part of the liberal media is being exposed on a number of issues ranging from Israel to obama. Their day of reckoning is coming.

Documents show media plotting to kill stories about Rev. Jeremiah Wright

By Jonathan Strong – The Daily Caller

It was the moment of greatest peril for then-Sen. Barack Obama’s political career. In the heat of the presidential campaign, videos surfaced of Obama’s pastor, the Rev. Jeremiah Wright, angrily denouncing whites, the U.S. government and America itself. Obama had once bragged of his closeness to Wright. Now the black nationalist preacher’s rhetoric was threatening to torpedo Obama’s campaign.

The crisis reached a howling pitch in mid-April, 2008, at an ABC News debate moderated by Charlie Gibson and George Stephanopoulos. Gibson asked Obama why it had taken him so long – nearly a year since Wright’s remarks became public – to dissociate himself from them. Stephanopoulos asked, “Do you think Reverend Wright loves America as much as you do?”

Watching this all at home were members of Journolist, a listserv comprised of several hundred liberal journalists, as well as like-minded professors and activists. The tough questioning from the ABC anchors left many of them outraged. “George [Stephanopoulos],” fumed Richard Kim of the Nation, is “being a disgusting little rat snake.”

Others went further. According to records obtained by The Daily Caller, at several points during the 2008 presidential campaign a group of liberal journalists took radical steps to protect their favored candidate. Employees of news organizations including Time, Politico, the Huffington Post, the Baltimore Sun, the Guardian, Salon and the New Republic participated in outpourings of anger over how Obama had been treated in the media, and in some cases plotted to fix the damage.

In one instance, Spencer Ackerman of the Washington Independent urged his colleagues to deflect attention from Obama’s relationship with Wright by changing the subject. Pick one of Obama’s conservative critics, Ackerman wrote, “Fred Barnes, Karl Rove, who cares — and call them racists.”

Michael Tomasky, a writer for the Guardian, also tried to rally his fellow members of Journolist: “Listen folks–in my opinion, we all have to do what we can to kill ABC and this idiocy in whatever venues we have. This isn’t about defending Obama. This is about how the [mainstream media] kills any chance of discourse that actually serves the people.”

“Richard Kim got this right above: ‘a horrible glimpse of general election press strategy.’ He’s dead on,” Tomasky continued. “We need to throw chairs now, try as hard as we can to get the call next time. Otherwise the questions in October will be exactly like this. This is just a disease.”

(In an interview Monday, Tomasky defended his position, calling the ABC debate an example of shoddy journalism.)

Thomas Schaller, a columnist for the Baltimore Sun as well as a political science professor, upped the ante from there. In a post with the subject header, “why don’t we use the power of this list to do something about the debate?” Schaller proposed coordinating a “smart statement expressing disgust” at the questions Gibson and Stephanopoulos had posed to Obama.

“It would create quite a stir, I bet, and be a warning against future behavior of the sort,” Schaller wrote.

Tomasky approved. “YES. A thousand times yes,” he exclaimed.

The members began collaborating on their open letter. Jonathan Stein of Mother Jones rejected an early draft, saying, “I’d say too short. In my opinion, it doesn’t go far enough in highlighting the inanity of some of [Gibson's] and [Stephanopoulos’s] questions. And it doesn’t point out their factual inaccuracies …Our friends at Media Matters probably have tons of experience with this sort of thing, if we want their input.”

NASA and muslims

Regarding NASA’s mission of outreach to muslim nations for the express purpose of giving them self esteem. Putting aside the fact that this should not be NASA‘s mission and that muslim contributions to science are scant, the reality is that Muslims do not lack self-esteem. In fact they are supremely confident of their superiority to kuffars. They are brazen enough to propose building a mosque near the site where muslims murdered 3000 Americans and don’t give a fig what we think. They are confident enough to demand to be given special privileges in western countries like sharia financing, footbaths in colleges and universities, demand no one consume pork in workplaces that employ muslims, demand prayer space in public schools and workplaces, demand they be given prayer breaks by their employers, carve out their own enclaves within western nations where non-muslims dare not enter, build mega-mosques with minarets and I could go on. Basically muslims in western countries are not here to be equal members of our societies but to dominate us. This is not the behavior of a people who lack self esteem. If anything, its western nations who could use a boost of self-esteem. We lack the pride and confidence to defend our own civilization, culture, values and way of life. We are terrified of demanding that immigrants assimilate lest we be called “racists” at best, at worst incur the violent wrath of these hostile invaders. So we here in the west let muslims walk all over us.

NASA's Muslim Outreach
By Mona Charen

It's not really surprising that President Obama told NASA administrator Charles Bolden that his highest priority should be "to find a way to reach out to the Muslim world and engage much more with dominantly Muslim nations to help them feel good about their historic contribution to science ... and math and engineering." It fits with so much that we already knew about the president.

It is consistent with his wildly exaggerated concept of governmental and presidential power and competence. Samuel Johnson wrote: "How small, of all that human hearts endure, that part which laws or kings can cause or cure." Obama believes the opposite -- that his presidency can be a transformative moment not just for the nation, but for the world. He will halt global warming and stop the rise of the oceans, transition America to a green energy future, prevent the "cycle of boom and bust" in the economy, provide universal health care while spending less than before, cushion "underwater" mortgage holders without rewarding profligate borrowers, increase taxes on the "rich" without harming the middle class, solve the problem of excessive public debt by amassing more public debt and so on.


How in the world would NASA help Muslim nations to "feel good" about themselves? Would NASA hold science fairs in Tripoli or Tehran? Produce and circulate propaganda films about Great Muslim Men (careful, never women) of Science? Stress our global debt to Muhammad ibn Musa al-Khwarizmi, the father of algebra? (That's risky, since al-Khwarizmi reportedly learned his math from the Indians.) How would Obama's NASA chief undertake to alter the civilizational self-esteem of a billion people?

Sarah Palin Speaks Out Against Ground Zero Mosque

Imam Rauf and his wife may think Americans are gullible and naive, in fact they are counting on it. But the majority of us are onto him and his agenda. The majority of us are well aware that this proposed ground zero mosque is not about interfaith harmony but about islamic supremacism, a symbol of islamic conquest. We will not allow rauf and his wife to take advantage of our freedom, openness and tolerance to do harm to America.

Sarah Palin has what most politicians lack; courage, morals and character. She is putting America above political correctness by speaking out against the proposed ground zero mosque.

You betcha! Sarah against Ground Zero mosque
Posted: July 20, 2010
1:00 am Eastern

By Pamela Geller


Sarah Palin has joined the fight.

She sent this message out Sunday on Twitter:

Peaceful New Yorkers, pls refute the Ground Zero mosque plan if you believe catastrophic pain caused @ Twin Towers site is too raw, too real
G-d, I love this woman! Palin nailed it. Here's an issue no politician will touch, even though polls show that most Americans oppose the construction of this Islamic supremacist mega-mosque at Ground Zero. The politicians – Mayor Bloomberg, Rep. Nadler, Andrew Cuomo and the rest of them – are so fearful of being labeled "bigots," they will throw their own people under a bus.

But Palin won't. When she resigned as governor of Alaska, I predicted that she would soon be leading a new revolution of American patriots. And she is doing so. She is not afraid of the jackals, hyenas and vultures who troll her home, her garbage cans and her most prized possession, her children. She is unbowed. She has spine, character, ethics, integrity and, above all, true grit.

I am proud to be a National Advisory Board member of Jewish Americans for Sarah Palin. If she runs for president, I'll be right behind her.

Palin has sided with Americans and American interests. Palin, once again, does the Right right. And it's wildly refreshing. The Left is twisted in knots. That's what she does. She twists up the morally bankrupt liberals. The Islamic supremacist mega-mosque that liberal politicians support is a stab in the eye of every American. The question is, why there? Why did the terror-tied Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, the leader of the initiative to build the mega-mosque at Ground Zero, spend nearly $5 million in cash to buy the property for a triumphal mosque a mere 600 feet from the site of the largest attack – an Islamic attack – on American soil in our history?

There have been 15,644 Islamic attacks across the world since Sept. 11, 2001. Each one had the imprimatur of an Islamic cleric. What is being done to expunge the Quran of the violent texts that inspire jihad? If Rauf is really a moderate, why isn't he spending his time working on that instead of trying to build this mega-mosque?

J Street’s Latest Treachery Against Jews

J Street’s war against Israel, the Jewish people and Judaism takes a more treacherous turn. The group seeks to get the treasury department to investigate charitable funding for Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem and calling for criminal sanctions against these organizations. Essentially they seek to have charitable organizations which contribute to Jewish communities beyond the green line as if they were akin to groups funding terrorist activity. There is a place in hell for george soros and the scoundrels at J Street for acting to destroy the Jewish people and aiding the jihad against Israel.

J Street’s outrageous new initiative

by Isi Leibler, Word From Jerusalem

The time has arrived for liberal American Jews who support Israel to ask themselves whether there should be some limitations or red lines for organizations seeking to be part of what they describe as the “Jewish tent.” Until now, many seem to be convinced that it is in the Jewish interest for all organizations to be brought into the Jewish fold irrespective of how much they malign the Jewish state.

The most prominent example is J Street, which is publicly committed to lobbying the US government to force Israel to take actions contrary to the will not only of the democratically elected government, but the vast majority of the people.

Many consider that tolerating such a group within the Jewish mainstream transforms the concept of a Jewish tent into a farce.

EMBOLDENED BY the reluctance and in some cases cowardice of establishment Jewish leaders to confront it, J Street has now advanced beyond this.

Deliberately designed to coincide with the date of President Barack Obama’s meeting with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, The New York Times published a full-page article challenging US charitable contributions which directly or indirectly assist enterprises in Jewish settlements.

The article selectively focused on fringe extremist elements and implicitly linked them with the broader settlement movement, questioning the validity of tax deductible status for donations which may benefit such areas. Not surprisingly, as Gerald Steinberg pointed out in a recent Jerusalem Post article, the Times skimmed over the many radical left organizations soliciting tax exempt funds to undermine and demonize the Israeli government.

J Street capitalized on this article and bombarded its members and supporters with an e-mail titled “Investigate the Settlement Charities: Take Action Now,” which was followed by utterly misleading themes including: “Disgraced Political Fund-raiser Jack Abramoff; Settlements in the West Bank; US-designated Jewish Terrorist Groups.”

J Street has thus exploited an unbalanced and biased article and further distorted it by focusing out of context on the reference by The New York Times to the extremist Kahane Hai fringe group and bracketing it with the settler movement. Although Kahane Hai does not even exist today and at its peak never comprised of more than a handful of followers, to package its message J Street emphasizes that Kahane Hai “was designated a terrorist organization by the United States in 1994,” to convey the false message that charitable contributions to any activity or welfare over the Green Line is akin to supporting terrorism.

Miss hezbollah USA

Too many clueless Americans, even conservatives, make the assumption that because a muslim may dress like a westerner and appear in a bikini, that makes them a “moderate”. But Rima Fakih has relatives who are hezbollah officials and terrorists. She is also using her position to spread propaganda and lies about islam not being extremist, which is ironic considering her own family ties to hezbollah as mentioned above. Furthermore the media is hiding the hezbollah connection and treating her as if she was a typical all-American girl. It was affirmative action which allowed her to win the title. Donald Trump is a putz. While the media hounded Carrie Prajean regarding her stance on gay marriage, they will not dare touch upon the issue of hezbollah with Fakih.

I Warned You: Muslim Miss USA Steps Up the Propaganda

By Debbie Schlussel

Islam is not (about) extremists. They’re not who we are.

–Rima Fakih, Miss Hezbollah USA, last week in Dearbornistan (quoted in the Detroit Free Press by resident Muslim propagandist “reporter” Niraj Warikoo).

I warned you about Muslim Miss USA, Hezbollah supporter Rima Fakih, and that she would use her beauty pageant title for Islamic propaganda. But I was roundly criticized by both those on the left AND the right, who can’t read between the lines and do their homework.

When she was first picked as the beauty pageant winner, she shied away from descriptions of herself as Muslim and stressed claims about having been exposed to Christianity and celebrating Christmas. But it was all baloney designed to deal with fallout from my report and those who echoed me. Fakih spent this past week in the Detroit area, primarily in Dearbornistan, empowering Muslim and Arab kids, and being very open about it. And she dropped all of her pretensions and phony claims about celebrating Christian holidays and having Christian family (both of which are lies). Now, she’s openly spreading the Islam is peace baloney throughout the world, as I warned you she would do.

Pictures of Suffering in Gaza

A shopping mall opens in Gaza, which already has an olympic size swimming pool and upscale restaurants. So much for the grave humanitarian crisis. But you will not hear a word of this being reported in the msm. There is a place in hell for members of the msm who are propagandists for hamas thus aiding the jihad against Israel and for that matter against America and the west.

From Atlas Shrugs:
Some journalists who subscribe to this list have asked me for a quote. You are welcome to use the following.

Political and media commentator Tom Gross said:

“On a day when (because EU Foreign Policy Chief Baroness Ashton is in Gaza) the BBC and other media have featured extensive reports all day long on what they term the dire economic situation in Gaza, why are they not mentioning the new shopping mall that opened there yesterday?

“When leading news outlets mention the so-called humanitarian flotillas from Turkey, why do they omit the fact that life expectancy and literacy rates are higher, and infant mortality rates are lower in Gaza than corresponding rates in Turkey? Have they considered that perhaps the humanitarian flotillas ought to be going in the other direction, towards Turkey?”


WHAT HUMANITARIAN CATASTROPHE?

Last year, this website was the first to reveal to a Western audience pictures of the bustling, crowded food markets of Gaza that the Western media refuse to show you. Earlier this year, I first reported the new Olympic-size swimming pool of Gaza (no shortage of building materials or water here) and the luxury restaurants, where you can “dine on steak au poivre and chicken cordon bleu”. (Over 300,000 people have viewed photos on that webpage since May, according to my website monitor.)

Now I want to draw attention to the fact that this morning, on the day that the EU again criticized Israel (but not Egypt) for supposedly oppressing Gazans, on a day when the BBC TV world news headlines again lead with a report about how “devastated the economy in Gaza is,” an impressive new shopping mall opened in Gaza (photos below, followed by a selection of other photos from Gaza).

Will those Western journalists who write stories about “starvation” in Gaza and compare it to a “concentration camp” report this?

Instead of reporting on the mall opening, the British-based international satellite broadcaster Sky News reported today “The humanitarian situation in Gaza remains dire.”

EDL Beaten by Police and muslims

The police in britain are acting as enforcers for the muslim jihadis. Clearly the british government is guilty of treason at the highest levels by aiding the muslim takeover of britain. Why they wish to turn their own country into an islamic state is beyond perplexing. Does the upper crust of british society believe they will be exempt from the consequences of the islamization of England? Do they not understand that once the muslims takeover they too will be vanquished, or at the very least forced to submit to islam and be enslaved by it?

Recall the British police jogging backwards when being chased by muslims, yet the police have no qualms about being aggressive and violent with peaceful British patriots. The English authorities are a disgrace and are why England is being destroyed.

“People Are Walking Past Covered in Blood”

by Baron Bodissey Gates of Vienna

A large demonstration in Dudley by the English Defence League was scheduled for today, but so far events have not proceeded as planned. The EDL was warned in advance that the police would interfere with them, and that appears to be what’s happening.

Here are a few of the reports are trickling in from the forums and chat rooms, with certain names edited out:

Source 1:

News from Dudley — protestors being split off into groups — Tommy Robinson and the Sikh EDL leader Guramit Singh have been blocked off from the main demo.

I’m told that police are hitting protestors indiscriminately.

Confirmation is coming in of police brutality. More people are reporting this, so it’s not one or two exaggerating.

Source 2:

They have been led them in the middle of nowhere. The police are hitting them in the head.

Source 3:

My hubby just phoned. He saw cops kick the s**t out of a lad.

Source 1 again:

Eight coaches didn’t get through — riots taking off.

Demonstrators are throwing iron fences at the police.

[Source is] safe on the coach watching events — riot police.

People are walking past covered in blood.

I wouldn’t be surprised if our first casualty comes from today. Police split the EDL into groups all over the town, and Muslims hunting in packs.

Source 5:
- – - – - – - – -

Police are sending coaches driving in circles.

My husband is stuck on a bus driving round Dudley, as the ob ain’t let no-one through!

Source 6:

People laying in pools of blood, people being run over, attacked with bricks, bottles and knives from the Muslims, and police doing nothing, indeed helping them.

BASTARDS!

Source 7:

No coaches back to Tipton.We’re trapped. One EDL bloke — not a hoolie — in his 40s, covered in blood. Today is a watershed.

Let the dust settle and let the leadership deal with this. Doing nothing is not an option.

The Burqa Ban Debate in France Erupts in Violence

Typically muslims resort to violence when infidels refuse to submit to their supremacist demands. In this case it is about the debate over banning the burka. The shrouding of women has no place in a free society. I'm glad to see the French are not caving on this.

Atlas Shrugs:
Burqa Ban Debate in Montreuil Devolves Into Violence

Ni Putes Ni Soumises (NPNS – Neither Whores Nor Submissives), an international human rights organization that advocates on behalf of women’s rights as universal human rights without compromise, organized an open public meeting on the anticipated French burqa ban in Montreuil, a suburb of Paris, France, on Tuesday, May 18, 2010, at 7:30 pm. The meeting was held in an elementary school in Montreuil. Ni Putes Ni Soumises representatives had canvassed the city earlier in the day, to spread awareness of the event. The President of Ni Putes Ni Soumises, Ms. Sihem Habchi, was present, along with a number of local elected government officials and Ms. Lubna Al Hussein, the Sudanese journalist and women’s rights activist who risked 40 lashes of the whip for wearing pants in Khartoum. Approximately 150 persons attended the debate, including a number of Islamists who attempted to shout down anyone expressing support for the public burqa ban in France. A handful of veiled women were present and gave testimonials, including one woman in niqab (the face veil that will be included in the anticipated ban).

Hostilities began almost immediately. The gulf that exists between the pro and anti-burqa ban camps could not have been more apparent. When the women’s rights activists and elected officials spoke, they spoke of the creation of a safe, egalitarian and secular public space in which all citizens enjoy equal rights and equal protection under the law. They spoke of women’s rights and the importance of ensuring gender equality and gender desegregation in a secular, democratic republic.

When the anti-burqa ban contingent spoke, they spoke only of Islam amid accusations of anti-immigrant racism. They defended the burqa as a tenet of Islam, as indicated in the Quran and supported by the Sunnah in the Hadith.

And the response should be that we don't give a crap what the tenets of islam are as indicated in the koran and hadith, we are not an islamic country and we will not be ruled by sharia. If you don't like it, get the fuck out.

The secularists refused to address the tenets of Islam as wholly irrelevant. The Islamists interpreted this refusal as bigotry. The heated debate erupted in violence, which resulted in only minor injuries, but which provided further evidence of the utter incompatibility of democratic governance and religion. The police arrived. They detained the remaining participants for some time, but the perpetrators had already fled the scene.

Many persons expressed that their participation in the truncated debate had served to increase their support for the ban on identity obscuring face coverings in public in France.

And yes, the behavior of barbaric muslims only reinforces the need to ban burqas, veils etc. France has got to be regretting ever opening up their borders to muslim immigrants.

Hotel Gitmo

Here are some of the horrible conditions to which the Gitmo terrorists are subjected to: A 17,000 book library, flat screen TV's, classes on personal finance, 18 satellite channels enabling them to watch the world cup, play stations and skype phone service to which khalid sheik mohammed was allowed to make calls. We've lost our marbles as a nation. These vermin should be made to suffer, not be receiving services as if they were staying at a luxury hotel, courtesy of the American taxpayer.

Jihadist Boy Scouts

Creating evil, hateful and violent little monsters, brainwashing and training them to be future jihadist mass murderers. Why is this camp not being shut-down? How is this different then let's say, the creation of a neo-nazi Boy Scouts?

Atlas Shrugs:

Philadelphia’s Islamist Boy Scouts | FrontPage Magazine.

Most Muslim extremists first radicalize their youth via sermon and brainwashing. One group, however, is skipping those steps and is taking the youngest of children right to the paramilitary route. But this group is not in Afghanistan or Iraq. No, it’s in Philadelphia, the so-called ‘City of Brotherly Love.’

The United Muslim Movement (UMM) was incorporated in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in June 1994, with the goal of creating a central mosque in the city along with an organization that would be able to “respond to the social, economical, political, educational, and religious needs facing our [UMM’s] communities.” Less than four months later, in October 1994, its first mosque, the United Muslim Masjid, was opened.

The owner of the mosque property and the face behind UMM is music and real estate magnate Kenneth Gamble, a.k.a. Luqman Abdul Haqq.

In the mid-1970s, following a nervous breakdown over personal and professional troubles, Gamble began to turn to the Islamic religion, getting involved with such groups as the Nation of Islam (NOI). At the time, NOI was moving towards the leadership of Louis Farrakhan, a combative personality most known for his anti-white and anti-Jewish statements.

Today, Gamble is a member of the Board of Directors (Majlis ash-Shura) of the Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA), a Muslim Brotherhood-related group headed by Siraj Wahhaj, an “unindicted co-conspirator” of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing. Gamble has been involved with MANA’s leadership since the group was initially established as a national organization in April 2001, at the UMM mosque.

UMM has interests beyond the building of mosques. One of them deals with children’s activities – violence-based children’s activities.

Jawala Scouts or the Jawala Scout Youth Leadership Program, an Islamic paramilitary boys group, was incorporated in Philadelphia in August 2005. It was founded a short time before that.

The children joining Jawala Scouts are as young as seven years of age. This is disconcerting, when considering some of the activities of the group, which include hand-to-hand combat, firearms training and survival tactics. Photographs from the group’s official website show the kids dressed in military fatigues, hiking through the woods, and engaged in wrestling.

What makes things worse are the type of individuals linked to Jawala Scouts. One is Carlin Saafir, the Legal Officer and 1st Lieutenant of the scouts. Saafir is also the President of UMM, a member of the UMM Masjid’s Board of Directors (General Council), and the Joint Community Outreach Chair of the Philadelphia office of the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), an entity affiliated with the terrorist organization Hamas.

The Registrant, Administrator and Technical Contact of Jawala’s site is Curtis De Veaux. In February 2005, De Veaux was suspended without pay from his job as a Philadelphia firefighter for refusing to shave his beard – deemed a security hazard – arguing that it was part of his being a devout Muslim.

The e-mail contact associated with the Jawala site, haqqone@hotmail.com, appears to be that of Kenneth Gamble. That would make sense, as the group registered its corporation using the same physical address as UMM, 800 S. 15th Street.

Another organization associated with Jawala Scouts is the Sankore’ Institute of Islamic-African Studies International (SIIASI), an anti-Western preservation society for rare African Muslim manuscripts. According to the Pittsburgh City Paper, SIIASI “started” the scout program.

SIIASI has been the subject of investigations by the FBI, which included a June 2006 raid on the institute’s premises. There may be a number of reasons for the government’s interest in the group.

One is the fact that the membership of SIIASI primarily consists of ex-felons. Pictures on the group’s official website display SIIASI associates brandishing guns and swords. In one photo, which appears to have been taken in the U.S., an individual is seen holding a rifle on his lap, while a young boy kneels close to him.

Another reason for the FBI’s concern over SIIASI is the extreme rhetoric that is spread by the organization’s leader.

Muhammad Shareef is the Director of SIIASI. He established the group in the Republic of Sudan in December 1985, along with a small group of others, which included the Sultan of Maiurno, Sudan, al-Hajj Abu Bakr ibn Muhammad.

Shareef, a co-founder and former board member of MANA, left his Pennsylvania home to live in China, where he resides today. He has been outspoken in his hatred of the United States, frequently referring to the U.S. as “Amerikkka.”

France Approves Ban on Face Veils

Some semblance of sanity prevails in Europe. France will no longer tolerate the islamic practice of shrouding women. Since 2004 France has outlawed headscarves and other religious insignia in public schools. However I disagree with their inclusion of crosses and stars of David in the ban of religious insignia. There's no reason for this other than for the sake of showing evenhandedness. Unlike islam, Judaism and Christianity are legitimate religious faiths whereas islam is an oppressive, totalitarian, expansionist and violent political ideology. Crosses and Stars of David merely represent an expression of one’s personal faith, they don’t seek to impose their religious beliefs on others. Islamic symbols represent conquest and submission of non-believers.

Why France Is Leading the Way In the Battle for Women’s Freedom


By Phyllis Chesler, FOX NEWS

On July 13, the day before Bastille Day, France stood up for “la liberté, l’égalité, la sororité,” for the rights of French women and for Western values when the French lower house of parliament approved the ban on face veils. Even the French communists caved in to feminist pressure and did not oppose this ban.

Vive la France! This is the country which in 2004 outlawed headscarves (as well as all religious insignia such as crosses or Jewish stars) in public schools. Contrast this attempt to uphold “republican” and “democratic” values with President Obama’s speech in Cairo on June 4, 2009, where our president expressed pride in America for having defended the right of Muslim girls and women to wear hijab.

This ban is expected to pass in the French senate. However, it may be found “unconstitutional” by the French Council of State or by the European Court of Human Rights. Nevertheless, in my opinion, once again, France is leading the way in the battle for women’s freedom and human rights.

The Koran does not mandate having to cover one’s face. This is not a religious requirement. It is, rather, a hostile rejection of Western values, a refusal to integrate, a sign of political Islam, and possibly of jihad. It is also the foremost distinguishing feature of Islamic gender and religious apartheid in the West.

It may be impossible for the West to ban acid attacks or honor horror killings of girls and women who refuse to veil in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, or Saudi Arabia—but why are our hands tied on Western soil?

Anti-Semitism in Germany

How is that diversity thing going for Europe? The organizer of a touchy-feely multicultural event in Germany was “shocked” that Arab-muslim punks shouted anti-Semitic slogans and threw stones at a Jewish dance group as they took the stage. Western liberals still refuse to grasp the fact that coexistence cannot be had with muslims. The situation for Jews in Europe will not improve, it will only get worse. Jews need to get out of dodge.

The Shared Extremism of Neo-Nazis and Migrant Youth

By Sven Röbel, Der Speigel

The synagogue in Worms became the target of an arson attack in mid-May. The authorities still don’t know who was behind the attack.

Following an anti-Semitic attack in Hanover, German authorities have identified a new source of anti-Semitic hatred in Germany: young migrants from Muslim families. The ideological alliance has officials concerned.

It was supposed to be a carefree festival in Sahlkamp on the outskirts of the northern German city of Hanover. Billed as an “International Day” to celebrate social diversity and togetherness, the June celebration included performances by a multicultural children’s choir called “Happy Rainbow” and the German-Turkish rap duo 3-K. Music from Afghanistan was also on the program.

But then the mood suddenly shifted.

When Hajo Arnds, the organizer of the neighborhood festival, stepped onto the stage at about 6:45 p.m. to announce the next performance, by the Jewish dance group Chaverim, he was greeted with catcalls. “Jews out!” some of the roughly 30 young people standing in front of the stage began shouting. “Gone with the Jews!”

The voices were those of children — voices full of hate, shouted in unison and amplified by a toy megaphone. Arnds, the organizer, was shocked. He knew many of the children, most of them from Arab immigrant families in the neighborhood.

A social worker, Arnds tried using the tools of his profession — words — to save the situation. But his words were met with stones, thrown at the stage by people taking cover in the crowd. One of the stones hit a female Chaverim dancer in the leg, resulting in an angry bruise.

Inflammatory Propaganda and Criminal Violence

Arnds immediately cancelled the dance performance. Still speaking through the microphone, he said that he wasn’t sure whether the festival could even continue after this incident. When adults walked to the front of the crowd to confront and talk to the children, they were verbally abused, and some of the teenagers ran away. The Jewish dance group was taken to a safe place, and the festival was allowed to continue. The last performance of the evening was by a duo singing Russian songs. “They’re not Jews,” one of the young people in front of the stage shouted, “so they can perform here.” A criminal complaint was not filed with the police until several days later.

Until now, attacks on Jews, Jewish institutions and Jewish symbols have almost always been committed by right-wing extremist groups. In the first quarter of 2010 alone, the German Interior Ministry documented 183 anti-Semitic offences committed by right-wing radicals, including graffiti, inflammatory propaganda and physical violence.

The stone-throwing incident in Hanover, however, has finally forced the authorities to take a closer look at a group of offenders that, though largely overlooked until now, is no less motivated by anti-Zionist sentiments: adolescents and young adults from an immigrant community who are influenced by Islamist ideas and are prepared to commit acts of violence.

An informal and accidental alliance has been developing for some time between neo-Nazis and some members of a group they would normally despise: Muslim immigrants. The two groups seem to share vaguely similar anti-Semitic ideologies.

Right-wing extremists and Islamists, says Heinz Fromm, the president of the German domestic intelligence agency, the Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution (BfV), are united by “a common bogeyman: Israel and the Jews as a whole.” While German right-wing extremists cultivate a “more or less obvious racist anti-Semitism,” says Fromm, the Islamists are “oriented toward the Israeli-Palestinian conflict” and support “anti-Zionist ideological positions, which can also have anti-Jewish and anti-Semitic overtones.” Both extremist movements, says Fromm, “ascribe extraordinary political power to Israel and the Jews, and their goal is to fight this power.”

Abbas Campaigning For Nobel Peace Prize

The nobel "peace" prize has been turned on its head and it's precisely because abbas is a holocaust denying Jew-hater involved in the Munich olympics massacre, which makes him eligible for the prize. In this morally upside down world we live in, genocidal jihadists are referred to as "humanitarians" so it should not be shocking that there would be a campaign to award abbas the nobel. In fact I expect that khalid meshal and hassan nasrallah will eventually be candidates as well as hugo chavez and erdogan.

Do you believe in the nobel peace prize, if facebook tells you so?

By SoccerDad on Arab World

A numberof bloggershavenoticedthat Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is campaigning for a Nobel Peace Prize.

I would have thought it was absurd, because
1) He is a doctor of Holocaust denial.
2) He provided the funding for the Munich Olympic massacre of Israeli athletes in 1972
3) He never took a position in opposition to Arafat's orchestration of violence against Israel after Oslo.
4) He rejected an offer of peace from Israeli PM Ehud Olmert.
5) Even now he is "throwing a pie" at President Obama and refusing to engage in direct negotiations with Binyamin Netanyahu.

Since I first saw stories about this during the past week or so, I assumed this initiative was new. It isn't. While I don't know the provenance of this, there's a Facebook page, Mr. Mahmoud Abbas 'Abu Mazen' for the Nobel Peace Prize

Fakestinians Rape “Peace” Activists

I'm sorry but for some reason I can’t bring myself to feel empathy for these anti-Israel supporters of the fakestinian cause. In fact I can only be amused at the irony of western leftist women being raped by the very misogynist jihadis whose cause they are championing against a country which upholds the rights of women. And no outrage will be forthcoming from any of the “peace” activists over their female colleagues being violated since it was perpetrated by the fakestinians.

MESS Report / Are the Palestinians silencing the attempted rape of U.S. peace activist?

What the PA may be doing to keep the darker side of its much lauded popular protest against the West Bank separation fence out of public view.

By Avi Issacharoff, Haaretz

The story of the Palestinian popular protest against Israel in several West Bank villages has recently garnered worldwide praise. However, as with any other massive movement, the popular protest too has its darker sides. The Palestinian Authority, as well as the leaders of the Palestinian popular protests in villages such as Bil’in, Na’alim, Umm Salmuna, have been trying to keep the following story away from both public knowledge and the media’s eye: One of the more prominent Umm Salmuna activists – a village south of Bethlehem, long entrenched in a battle against the West Bank separation fence – is suspected of the attempted rape of an American peace activist who had been residing in the village as part of her support of the local protest.

Omar Aladdin, who had been arrested three months ago over suspicions he had attempted to rape the U.S. citizen, was subsequently released after agreeing to apologize to the young woman. However, Haaretz had learned that representatives of both the popular protest movement and the PA have since applied pressure on the American peace activist as to prevent her from making the story public.

The incident allegedly took place last April, as Aladdin, who had served a term in the Israeli jail in the past, arrived one evening at the guest house in which many of the foreign peace activists were staying. The European and American female activists reportedly agreed to let Aladdin stay with them after he had told them he feared the Israel Defense Forces were on his tail, adding that he had been severely beaten at an IDF checkpoint only a week before.

During his stay Aladdin allegedly attempted to rape a Muslim-American woman, nicknamed “Fegin” by fellow activists. The woman escaped, later accusing the popular protest man of the attempt. One villager who had encountered the American following the incident said she had been in a state of shock.

Aladdin then refused to apologize for the incident, when news of it reached the village’s popular committee, the popular protests’ governing body, allegedly saying that the incident had been marginal and normal. The American activist then asked the committee to notify authorities of the attempted rape, a request which resulted in the man being arrested by security forces in Bethlehem. After agreeing to apologize for the incident, Aladdin was released from custody by the PA police.

The U.S. citizen was then convinced to retract her complaint, as to avoid tainting the image of the popular protest, which had attracted praise from around the world in recent months.

However, the Umm Salmuna case is not the only one. Separation fence activists know of other incidents in which Palestinians molested and sexually assaulted foreign peace activists, a subject which was apparently raised in the discussions of the various popular committees.

Foreign female peace activists regularly participate in protests in the villages of Bil’in, Na’alin, and others, where the activists stay in separate houses. Some villagers do not agree with these housing arrangements, claiming that the villages’ youth, who frequently visit the activists, are corrupted by the young women.

One villager said the female activists bring a different “culture with them, western, too open. The young people, especially from the villages, aren’t used to stay near other girls, they do not know their culture, certainly when it’s a young woman staying with other women in a strange house. They misinterpret it.”

Mahmoud Zwahara, the popular committee’s coordinator for the Umm Salmuna and Ma’sara region, said in response that “the struggle against the separation fence is a joint fight, which does not target Israeli identity or Jews. We hope that our activity will show the Israeli soldiers that they must cease their actions against us as well as human rights violations.”

England is Going Down the Toilet

The British have completely lost their minds. Culturally sensitive toilets are now being installed in a shopping center. Liberalism and political correctness have gone completely around the bend.

Via Atlas Shrugs:
Shopping centre bosses approve 'Asian squat toilets' following cultural awareness course Daily Mail
For centuries, the great British loo has been a matter of envy to the rest of the world.

Thanks to the efforts of pioneers like the legendary Thomas Crapper, we have long since led the world in comfort and hygiene.

Now, however, that could be about to change.

For most of us, the squat toilet is nothing more than a staple of horror stories about old-fashioned French service stations or the exploits of adventurous backpackers in far-flung parts of India.

But this basic form of plumbing, also known as a Turkish toilet or Nile pan, could be coming to a shopping centre near you - and all in the name of cultural sensitivity.

From next week, shoppers in Rochdale who push open the cubicle door expecting the reassuring sight of a modern, clean lavatory could instead be faced with little more than a hole in the ground.

Media Silence on muslim "Honor" Murders

The msm refuses to report "honor" murders perpetrated by muslims, which represent the overwhelming majority of them. There has been media silence over the plight of the muslim Harry Potter actress threatened with death by her brother and father for dating a Hindu man. You would think that her being an actress who was featured in a blockbuster movie would garner alot of media attention considering all the other mundane celebrity "news" we are being bombarded with, such as Mel Gibson and Lindsey Lohan. But for some reason the story of the Harry Potter actress isn't considered remotely newsworthy. I wonder why. Why does big media cover for the muslim community?

Are Some Honor Killings More Equal Than Others?

By Phyllis Chesler, FoxNews.com



If an honor killing is committed by Muslims in North America, chances are you won’t read about it in the mainstream American media, except perhaps locally, and briefly. However, if the honor killing has been perpetrated by Hindus or Sikhs, and in faraway India, the crime merits prominent treatment in The Washington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and of course, in The New York Times.

For example, on Saturday, July 10 the Gray Lady ran a front page article about a caste-related honor killing in Koderma, India.

The murdered young woman, Nirupama Pathak, a journalist, was a Brahmin, considered the highest caste; for more than a year, she was secretly engaged to a “top” fellow student who belonged to the “middle upper caste.” Ms. Pathak was also secretly pregnant. For her, there was no going back. And, unlike the law in many Muslim countries, the Indian law was on her side: Despite tribal tradition, inter-caste marriages are specifically permitted. Poor Nirupama was found dead in her bedroom in her family home. The family told the police, variously, that she had either electrocuted or hung herself. They produced a suicide note. However, according to an autopsy, it seems she had been suffocated. Since only her mother had been at home with her, her mother was arrested.

In late May, The Washington Post also did a major story about a Hindu couple in India whose marriage was ruled “incestuous” (they were from the same clan as well as caste); thus, the groom was strangled and the bride forced to drink pesticide. Their bodies were dumped in a canal. The fact the murderers and their victims were Hindus was openly—almost gladly--discussed.

Why do I write “gladly?” Because this, after all, is proof that honor killings are not specific to Muslims. Nevertheless, according to my 2010 study in Middle East Quarterly, 84% of those who commit honor murders in North America have been Muslims and 96% of honor murderers in Europe were Muslims.


Yes, Hindus and Sikhs have committed honor murders in the West. Apparently, the kind of Hindus who emigrate to the West do not bring such tribal or religious customs along with them.

But Muslims do.
