Exposing Rauf's Takkiya

Great show and a great network from Canada. I wish such honest discussion about islam was permitted on our own cable news programs. This is not allowed even on FOX. The Sun network is everything that FOX only pretends to be, a genuine conservative voice, while FOX itself is increasingly like the rest of the politically correct leftist networks.

Anti-Semitic Chants at Soccer Games

Yet one more reason to hate the lousy sport of soccer. The most popular sport in the third world and with euroweenies. This type of behavior would be unthinkable at sporting events in America. Europe gets more rabidly anti-Semitic every day.


‘Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the gas’

Manfred Gerstenfeld offers glimpse into anti-Semitic chants in Dutch world of soccer
Manfred Gerstenfeld

Anti-Semitism is a recurrent problem in the world of soccer. Nowhere else, however, is the origin of wide-spread anti-Semitic chants in stadiums as bizarre as in the Netherlands.

Earlier this month, anti-Semitic slogans were the subject of a court case brought by BAN, an organization fighting anti-Semitism, against ADO. In March, this top league club from The Hague won a game against Ajax from Amsterdam. During the match ADO supporters frequently chanted “Hamas, Hamas, Jews to the Gas” and “Horrible Cancer Jews.”

At a party after ADO’s victory, fans and two players sang in the presence of the trainer, “We are going to chase Jews.” The judge decided that ADO’s management would be held responsible to prevent repetition of similar outbursts at future games and if it could not, management should stop the match.

However, the Jews at whom ADO supporters aimed were not Jews at all. They were the fanatic fans of Ajax who in a distant past had started to refer to themselves as “Jews.” These supporters accompanied their team with Israeli flags and Stars of David to the stadiums. Some fans even had tattoos of the Star of David. There was a time that when Ajax scored a goal, their fans would sing the Israeli song Hava Nagila.

Ajax has had a few Jewish board members and it has a small number of non-violent Jewish supporters. They make up perhaps 1% of those present at home games. A number of them initially viewed the nickname and its accompanying phenomena favorably not realizing what its long-term consequences would be.

Fanatic supporters of other soccer teams, principally from the big cities of Rotterdam, The Hague and Utrecht, considered the Ajax nickname a provocation and started with the hate chants. Initially these were anti-Semitic in nature but not in context, as they were aimed at non-Jews. “Bomb Rotterdam” retorted the Ajax fans when they played against local team Feyenoord there. They were referring to the murderous bombardments of the town during the German invasion of the Netherlands in May 1940.

Jews must be on guard
Anti-Semitic songs gradually spread in other directions. In October 2004, Referee Rene Temmink ended a game between ADO and the PSV of Eindhoven. There had been lengthy shouts of “Hamas, Hamas, Temmink to the Gas.” It was the first time in Europe that a top league game was halted midway due to hate chants.

Soccer fans gradually started to sing the anti-Semitic songs elsewhere also aiming at real Jews. Rabbi Binyomin Jacobs — chief rabbi of the Dutch interprovincial rabbinate — said that he, together with a non-Jewish psychologist, once entered a train full of Feyenoord supporters. When these fans saw them, they started to chant: “Jews to the gas.” Jacobs said that he got the feeling that the whole train of “ordinary Dutchmen” was against them.

The Rabbi added, “The psychologist shrank from fear. It seemed to me that signs of anxiety wouldn’t help us very much, thus I feigned that I was indifferent to it as a sign of strength. One may consider this incident as an act of hooliganism, yet if one of these idiots had attacked us, many more would have probably followed him.”

Nowadays at anti-Israel demonstrations in The Netherlands, “Hamas Hamas, Jews to the gas” is also heard, mainly shouted by Muslims. Even though these kinds of outbursts are prohibited by law, offenders are rarely punished. In one such demonstration in January 2009, two parliamentarians from the left-wing Socialist party participated. They claimed afterwards that they hadn’t heard the shouts. There are also reports that Muslim students at various Dutch schools have sung the same hate song to insult Jewish students.

In recent years, Dutch authorities have started to understand that this proliferation of hate songs must be stopped. In May, Amsterdam Mayor Eberhard van der Laan requested after Ajax became league champions that its fans stop using the nickname “Jews.” He observed: “It is a matter of changing this behavior, which may take 10 years.”

There is a special lesson in the development of soccer related anti-Semitism to be learned by the small Jewish community in the Netherlands. It has been demonstrated once again that Jews must anticipate problems long before they spread into society at large. This issue is yet one more illustration that Jews have to be on guard far more than other groups in Western societies.

Dr. Manfred Gerstenfeld has published 20 books. Several of these address European anti-Israelism and anti-Semitism

Liberals Enable the Stealth Jihad

The Center for American Progress, Southern Poverty Law Center, ACLU etc. stand accused of being traitors for aiding and abetting the stealth jihad being waged on America. Without the assistance of leftist organizations, sharia law would not stand a chance of gaining a foothold in America or the west.

Center for American Progress Defends Shariah, Charges America with Islamophobia
Center for Security Policy | Aug 26, 2011

WASHINGTON, DC – AUGUST 25, 2011: There they go again. Friday, the Center for American Progress released “Fear, Inc.,” yet another report in the increasingly hysterical bullying campaign to shout down criticism of political Islamist efforts to influence American foreign and domestic policy. Their latest “copy and paste” effort duplicates large sections of five nearly identical “investigations” just this year, complaining that millions of concerned Americans are Islamophobes.

The primary organizations– what should be called the “Shariah Defense Lobby”– are the Center for American Progress/ThinkProgress, the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) with support from a handful of other far-left or Islamist bloggers and Washington lobbyists.

The “Shariah Defense Lobby” whitewashes and protects political, legal, military and religious doctrines of Shariah law (Islamic law) from scrutiny. One of its major goals is to silence all criticism of Islamist aggression, jihadist violence, or Shariah violations of human rights and civil liberties.

Frank J. Gaffney, president of the Center for Security Policy, noted that:

The ‘Shariah Defense Lobby’ is in a race against time to hide the grim reality of Shariah law as it is actually enforced, as Islamist movements and political parties throughout the Arab world are aggressively seeking to govern by Shariah. Most significantly, the ‘Shariah Defense Lobby’ refuses to discuss a simple fact: secular and democratic activists in Egypt and elsewhere in the Muslim world oppose Shariah in their countries, just as Americans oppose it here.

The latest report also attacks venerable American family foundations for supporting educational efforts on national security and counter-terrorism. The funding sources of the “Shariah Defense Lobby” should be exposed to public scrutiny. For example, CAIR– an unindicted co-conspirator in the largest terror financing trial in American history– has reportedly received millions in foreign funding from Islamist contributors, including the Organization of Islamic Conference (aka Cooperation). This year, CAIR lost its nonprofit tax status because of its refusal to file tax forms that would have revealed its sources of funding.

In addition to CAIR’s foreign financing, this latest paper from the Center for American Progress reveals that the project depends on money from the Open Society Foundations, a funding vehicle of far-left billionaire George Soros. George Soros is chairman of Soros Fund Management LLC. He has amassed a personal fortune estimated at about $14.5 billion (as of 2011). His company, Soros Fund Management, controls at least another $27.9 billion in investor assets. Soros’s foundation network– whose flagship is the Open Society Institute (OSI)– has reportedly dispensed billions to a multitude of far left organizations.

The “Shariah Defense Lobby,” which aggressively defends Shariah from its critics, has produced a year-long campaign of remarkably identical agitprop papers, all with a single goal: to attack the millions of Americans who are concerned about political Islamists’ growing power here in the U.S. and abroad. In these increasingly shrill reports, the “Shariah Defense Lobby” keeps attempting to silence the great majority of Americans who express legitimate concerns about home-grown Islamist terrorism, and about Islamist efforts to enforce Shariah law on American Muslim families and even on non-Muslim Americans.

The Center for American Progress– authors of “Fear, Inc.”– are trying to make Americans afraid of discussing one of the greatest national security threats we face. Thankfully, the American people aren’t buying what they’re selling: the campaign is having the opposite effect of what the Lobby intends.

Ron Paul's Ignorance

Ron Paul needs a crash course on islamic history and doctrine. No, it wasn't American intervention that motivated the 9/11 massacre of 3000 Americans. It was jihad, as commanded in the koran, sura and hadiths and backed by 1400 years of history. Someone needs to remind Paul that Americans have been targeted by islam since the days of the Barbary wars when muslims attacked American merchant ships in the name of allah. Why is the motive for terrorism seemingly so difficult for many westerners to grasp? The truth is readily available. Why do so many twist themselves into pretzels to explain away the motivation of islamic terrorists? The explanation usually being that we have brought it upon ourselves.

Atlas Shrugs:
Ron Paul Blames US for 911 Attacks
It astounds me that Ron Paul has any following, let alone his consistent standing in recent polls. So what if he is a fiscal conservative? So is Muslim Brotherhood-tied Grover Norquist.

Paul should be relegated to the very fringe of the GOP. The American people must be made aware of where each candidate stands and what each candidate stands for.

Ron Paul says U.S. intervention motivated 9/11 attacks Iowa Caucuses (hat tip Jack)
Josh Hafner
WINTERSET, Ia. – Two weeks away from the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, presidential candidate and Texas Rep. Ron Paul says that U.S. intervention in the Middle East is a main motivation behind terrorist hostilities toward America, and that Islam is not a threat to the nation.

At a campaign stop on Saturday in Winterset, one man asked Paul how terrorist groups would react if the U.S. removed its military presence in Middle Eastern nations, a move the candidate advocates.

“Which enemy are you worried that will attack our national security?” Paul asked.

“If you’re looking for specifics, I’m talking about Islam. Radical Islam,” the man answered.

“I don’t see Islam as our enemy,” Paul said. “I see that motivation is occupation and those who hate us and would like to kill us, they are motivated by our invasion of their land, the support of their dictators that they hate.”

Regarding 9/11, Paul said that attacks against the U.S. from Middle Eastern groups at home and abroad can be traced to the foreign presence of U.S. troops, as well as America’s relationships with dictator regimes.

Paul referred to a military base in Saudi Arabia, the birthplace of Islam, as a key motivator in the Sept. 11th attacks. Osama bin Laden viewed it as an American desecration of holy land.

“After 9/11, (people said) ‘Oh yeah, it’s those very bad people who hate us,’ but 15 of (the hijackers) came from Saudi Arabia,” said Paul. “One of the reasons they attacked us, is we propped up this Sharia government and the fundamentalists hated us for it.”

This last statement is a contradiction. The "fundamentalists" hated us because we propped up the Saudi sharia government? This statement is laughable. This makes it sound like the 9/11 jihadists attacked us because they wanted a free saudi arabia. But of course the so-called "fundamentalists", who are actually authentic muslims, FAVOR sharia law. As horrific as the saudi regime is, al qaeda and like minded groups don't consider it sufficiently sharia compliant enough.

The Media's Extreme Anti-Israel Bias

With this type of extremely misleading and bias reporting, the media stands
accused of being actively complicit in the terror war against Israel and the slaughter of Jews. The media has willfully chosen to side with evil, to side with the annihilationists. To put it even more bluntly, the leftist western media is cheering leading for hamas and rooting for the destruction of Israel.

Pajamas Media:
Middle East Terrorist Scams and the Western Naivete that Empowers ThemAugust 26, 2011 - 10:24 am - by Barry Rubin By Barry Rubin

Rockets from the Gaza Strip continue to pound Israel. And much of the Western media blames: Israel. I want to explain again how this system works.

What follows is a seven-point pattern that goes something like this: Someone shoots at your spouse, you punch the attacker, he yells, “Ceasefire!” then kicks you in the groin and takes some more shots at your spouse. You try to defend yourself. The police stand by doing nothing and then declare you to be the aggressor for breaking the ceasefire.

If this sounds like an exaggeration, I sincerely wish that it was! (Scholarly disclaimer: Of course many politicians and media outlets do see through this but the pattern discussed below is a very widespread one.)

1. Terrorist group attacks Israeli civilians.

2. As Israel seeks to retaliate, the group declares a ceasefire.

3. Western media announce ceasefire.

4. But rockets continue to be fired into Israel against civilian targets. Responsibility is usually taken by smaller groups allied with Hamas, like Islamic Jihad. This allows Hamas–and Western media–to deny that Hamas has any responsibility and thus there is no need to take actions against it. Nobody notes that Hamas is now allied with the Palestinian Authority (PA) and the latter does not condemn the attacks but only condemns Israel.

(Note: Western media only report it when the PA condemns a terrorist attack and that at times gets more coverage than the attack and the Israeli victims.)

(Additional note: In late 2008, Hamas launched a war of rockets, missiles, mortars, and attempted cross-border attacks on Israel, breaking an existing ceasefire. When Israel retaliated, many accused Israel of aggression.)

(Another additional note: It is generally forgotten that because of Israel’s self-defense against the Hamas attacks the PA broke off negotiations with Israel and three years later, despite constant missreporting that the lack of talks is Israel’s fault, that policy continues.)

5. Israel retaliates against rocket-firing teams, weapons’ workshops, arms-smuggling tunnels, rocket storage places, and leaders of groups firing rockets. Some civilians are killed and this becomes the main point of Western media stories. Since the numbers and identities come from Hamas, they maximize numbers and civilians, concealing terrorists’ being killed and at times reclassifying terrorists as civilians. Note that when civilians are killed by Western airstrikes, as in Afghanistan or Libya, it is emphasized that these are regrettable accidents. With Israel it is implied that such action is purposeful or at least careless.

6. Western media report that Israel “broke” the “ceasefire.”

7. Continued attacks on Israel are thus blamed on Israeli action.

Think that’s an exaggeration? Here’s the Washington Post:

“A tenuous cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip was punctured Wednesday by a deadly Israeli airstrike that triggered rocket and mortar fire at Israel.”

Political result:

Anti-Israel politicians, media, and experts blame Israel for being aggressive and using “disproportionate force,” a phrase
that only seems to be applied to Israel in the world.

More moderate politicians, media, and experts decry the cycle of violence for which both sides are responsible.

Coming soon to a UN Near You: The September UN Scam! Here’s a wonderful indication of what’s going on:

A pro-Palestinian Oxford University law professor has warned the Palestinian leadership that it must do the unilateral independence declaration at the UN properly so it can claim all of Israel later.

Israel Must Exert its Power

Israel must stop acting like a victim. It must not wait for a green light from Washington to defend itself or leave itself at the mercy of a cruel and hostile international community which will never under any circumstances back an Israeli military response no matter the extent of atrocities its enemies inflict upon it . Israel must start behaving like a powerful and proud sovereign nation which ruthlessly deals with those who bring harm to or attempt to bring harm to its citizens. Stop the childish desire to be liked and focus on being feared and respected.

Renew America:
Tiny Israel is the ultimate rape victim
By Victor Sharpe

The world and the national and international mainstream media are eerily silent when Israel and her civilian population are attacked by missiles from Gaza or Lebanon and her people slaughtered by Palestinian terrorists as just occurred.

But if she retaliates, oh my, the same immoral world and mass media scream and condemn her for daring to resist and a predictable anti-Israel censure is issued from that ultimate temple of hypocrisy: the United Nations. Israel is like the rape victim who never receives justice from a series of biased judges.
But it is now even worse for the embattled Jewish state. The most hostile anti-Israel President, Barack Hussein Obama, and a State Department, which is perennially anti-Israel to its core, will never give Israel the green light to finally finish the job by destroying once and for all the murderous terrorists of the Arab and Muslim world.

Does the world care about the tormented Israeli town of Sderot, which is battered relentlessly by missiles from the pitiless Hamas occupied and terrorist infested Gaza Strip? O little town of Sderot, her suffering people live a mere three kilometers from the Gaza Strip. They have only 15 seconds warning from the next incoming barrage of deadly missiles deliberately fired at them by the Arabs who call themselves Palestinians.

Ashkelon, a large city of over 100,000 souls is another nearby target of Palestinian Arab aggression. Rockets slam into her civilian areas routinely and again the world is silent.

Ashdod and Beersheba — all major southern Israeli cities came under a heavy rocket offensive from Gaza lasting from Thursday until Sunday night. Jews have died, babies and toddlers have been wounded, a synagogue was hit by a Grad missile and a school all but destroyed. Towns and villages have been struck and their civilians terrorized.

Did you hear that on the TV news or read it in the New York Times or Washington Post? If you did it was reported in the fashion that afflicts all news about Israeli suffering: The sin of moral equivalence. In other words, it is a perverse editorial mechanism, which presents the Israeli victim as equal to the Arab victimizer.

Under the latest blatant crime against humanity perpetrated by Hamas, Islamic jihad and Al Qaeda, which terrorized southern Israel, some one million Israelis were under threat as more than 150 Grad and Katyusha missiles from Gaza struck Israeli villages and towns.

By the way, according to reports, many of the lethal Grad missiles were captured from Gaddafi’s forces by the so-called rebels in Libya and smuggled into Gaza. These are the same rebels who cried Allahu Akbar, the Islamic war cry, as they stormed into Tripoli. There is the clue to what will be the new Libya: An Islamic state based upon Sharia law and endemically hostile to the non-Muslim world. Thank you, NATO and President Obama.

Where was the mainstream media during the terrifying bombardment of Israeli civilian targets from Gaza? Where was Hillary Clinton, and oh, where was our President? I’ll tell you where he was: Laughing it up on a golf course at Martha’s Vineyard while our most loyal ally, Israel, suffered grievously and America’s economy continued to sink.

The next target will be Tel Aviv, which is a mere 68 kilometers from Gaza. In the north, Hezbollah is even more deadly. They have received from Iran, through Syria, more than 80,000 deadly missiles all aimed at the Jewish state. Some may even be tipped with chemical and biological weapons. The Greater Tel Aviv area contains almost a quarter of Israel’s population

When the next war will occur is in doubt but it will occur — perhaps sooner than later. Meanwhile when it does, hordes of Muslim Arabs, who call themselves Palestinians, will be called upon by the muezzin at the Al Aksa mosque to kill Jews and Christians wherever they are found in the Holy City. These Muslim drones merely bide their time before committing horror and genocide.

Let me quote partially from a recent article by Giulio Meotti, a journalist with Il Foglio, and the author of the book, A New Shoah: The Untold Story of Israel’s Victims of Terrorism.

“Sderot represents the siege on the Jewish people and the resistance of Israel, but it also reveals the rest of the world’s indifference to the genocidal hatred that is Jihadism. Some 70% of Israeli children in the Negev show symptoms of trauma, while thousands of children carry physical disabilities from Palestinian bombs.

“There are children who want to constantly stay inside the bunkers, or in the secured rooms of their homes. There are children who don’t get out of bed anymore.

“Little is said or written about the incredible courage being shown by the civilian population of Israel, but it is reminiscent of events 70 years ago, Londoners, who had endured the blitz stoically… the people of Israel are equally valiant, going about their daily lives knowing that Arab killers might explode a bomb or rocket in any public place at any time.

“For Israel, more alarming than the rocket escalation is an eventual Islamist takeover of the mere six miles that separate Netanya on the Israeli coast from the Palestinian town of Tulkarem. There is an Arab saying about Netanya as the narrowest and most exposed throat of Israel: ‘When we hang you, we will hang you from Netanya.’”

If Israel, heaven forbid, should ever succumb to the relentless and genocidal evil that is the Arab and Islamic world, cheered on by the despicable and terminally misguided Amen chorus from much of the morally degraded West, then the world as we know it will forever end and a new and terrible dark age will descend.

When we see how the mainstream media and the international corridors of power are silent in the face of the crimes of the Palestinian terror machine we should hearken to the words from the ancient Jewish Ethics of the Fathers: “He who is kind to the cruel ends by being cruel to the kind.”

Restoring Courage Rally

Watch this and other videos of the Glenn Beck Restoring Courage Rally in Israel. The choice couldn't be clearer. Either you stand with Israel, or you stand with evil. Either you stand with Israel unequivocally or be accused of standing on the side of the annihilationists, the current day nazis of hamas, hezbollah, the regime in Tehran, the bilge who gathered in London on Sunday etc. who all seek to remove the Jewish people from their homeland and turn it into an islamic terror state.

Jewish Liberals Smear Beck

This is the same Rabbi Yoffie who engaged in outreach with islamic groups, but he thinks Beck is too extreme for Jews to befriend. This is in keeping with the liberal Jewish tradition of loathing friends and embracing enemies of the Jewish people.

Yoffie said that Beck had mocked the distress of hundreds of thousands of protesters in Israel, referring to the right-wing pundit’s comments about the tent protests in Israel earlier this month when he compared protesters’ calls for increased social benefits to those of the former Soviet Union.

Distressed protesters, my foot. These are affluent spoiled brats pushing for a more socialist Israel.

U.S. Jews warn Israel not to get too cozy with Beck
By Shlomo Shamir, HAARETZ

NEW YORK – The warm welcome extreme right-wing media personality Glenn Beck has receiving in Israel has led to criticism of the American pundit by Jewish leaders in New York.

Rabbi Eric Yoffie, President of the Union for Reform Judaism, told Haaretz he believed that Beck was very extreme and controversial even among right-wing groups in the United States. Yoffie pointed to the Fox News television network, which had canceled Beck’s show and distanced itself from him.

Yoffie said that Beck had mocked the distress of hundreds of thousands of protesters in Israel, referring to the right-wing pundit’s comments about the tent protests in Israel earlier this month when he compared protesters’ calls for increased social benefits to those of the former Soviet Union.

According to Yoffie, Beck’s comments on the protest in Israel are a slap in the face to hundreds of thousands of protesters, and expressed dismay that such a man is holding events in Israel with the participation of cheering masses.

Yoffie, who said he preferred not to speak about Beck and lend him undue prominence, said the pundit had expressed himself hatefully and rudely against President Obama, who is Israel’s important and faithful ally.

Seymour Reich, former chairman of the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish Organizations and a leading New York attorney, said Tuesday that he believed Beck was taking rude advantage of Israel in order to rehabilitate his television career and reputation.

Reich said he believed Israeli and Jews everywhere should be careful about embracing an extreme right-winger like Beck, who shows sympathy for Israel in order to hide his extreme-right ideology.

In contrast, Abe Foxman, the national director of the Anti-Defamation League, said Tuesday that Beck had come to Israel to show support and solidarity with Israel and he should be welcomed as a friend.

Foxman also said the fact that Beck expressed views people did not agree with was no reason to ostracize him.

Israel Stands Alone

The world treats the slaughter of Jews with indifference. So Israelis stand alone as they endure this latest rocket barrage, the shootings and other jihad attacks. Not only does Israel have to face constant terrorist assaults, but at the same time it also undergoes verbal and diplomatic abuse at the hands of a vicious and morally degenerate international community which seeks to appease jihadists at Israel’s expense.

London 1940, Israel 2011
Op-ed: Israelis facing similar onslaught to London blitz, but without world’s support
Giulio Meotti, Ynet

Sderot, Ashkelon, Ashdod, Beersheba….All major southern Israel cities are now under a heavy rocket offensive from Gaza. There are Jewish dead, babies wounded, schools and synagogues destroyed, entire cities and towns terrorized.

There is only one historical precedent of a modern democracy besieged under rocket attacks. During the afternoon of Sept. 7, 1940, 348 Nazi bombers appeared over London’s skies. For the next 57 days, London was bombed day and night. Fires consumed many portions of the city. Residents sought shelter wherever they could find it – many fleeing to the underground that sheltered as many as 177,000 people during the night.

However, there is a big difference between the two situations: While the West backed the British resistance against the Nazi monster, Israel is alone in fighting a battle for all of us. And Sderot’s fate has become the fate of the whole of Israel.

Israeli intelligence reports indicate that estimated warning time for a rocket attack on the greater Tel Aviv area has declined from two minutes to just 90 seconds. From Gaza, a couple of years ago, the terrorists were able to strike at most of Sderot, which is just three kilometres from the Gaza Strip. Then they reached Ashkelon (20 km), Beersheba (40 km) and Ashdod (31 km), also hitting the outskirts of Rehovot (42) and Rishon Lezion (58 km).

Missiles did not hit so close to Israel’s main population centre since 1991, when Saddam Hussein launched his missiles from Baghdad. The next target will be Tel Aviv (68 km). In the north, Hezbollah is even more deadly. The Greater Tel Aviv area, where a quarter of the entire Israeli population lives, is the target of the next war. Nobody knows if and when it will begin.

Israeli courage
Sderot represents the siege on the Jewish people and the resistance of Israel, but it also reveals the rest of the world’s indifference to the genocidal hatred that is Jihadism. Some 70% of Israeli children in the Negev show symptoms of trauma, while thousands of children carry physical disabilities from Palestinian bombs.

There are children who want to constantly stay inside the bunkers, or in the secured rooms of their homes. There are children who don’t get out of bed anymore. There are people who take the taxi to reach medical clinics, in case the air raid siren will sound. Many people had their hearing impaired because they live close to the siren. There are even those people who hear the siren even when it’s silent.

Little is said or written about the incredible courage being shown by the civilian population of Israel, but it is reminiscent of events 70 years ago. Londoners, who had endured the blitz stoically, with British aplomb and quiet courage, then had more than 1,200 V-1 bombs rain down on them from the skies, followed later by hundreds of larger V-2 missiles that gave no warning. The people of Israel are equally valiant, going about their daily lives knowing that killers might explode a bomb or rocket in any public place at any time.

Yet there is another difference. The British people didn’t have to face a ground invasion or a house-to-house war. For Israel, more alarming than the rocket escalation is an eventual Islamist takeover of the mere six miles that separate Netanya on the Israeli coast from the Palestinian town of Tulkarem. There is an Arab saying about Netanya as the narrowest and most exposed throat of Israel: “When we hang you, we will hang you from Netanya.”

Jew-hating Rally in London

The vile hamas supporting, anti-Semite Lauren Booth speaks at an islamo-nazi rally in London. This obscene and ghoulish gathering calls for the obliteration of Israel and the genocide of Jews. This woman is seriously disturbed and evil. England has become a hideous cesspool.

Richard Millett's blog:

Lauren Booth: “Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt must liberate Jerusalem”.

"It is time, Brothers and Sisters, for Al Quds to be liberated. For Islam and people of the world who wish to pray there to the one God. And we say here today to you Israel, we see your crimes and we loathe your crimes. And to us your nation does not exist, because it is a criminal injustice against humanity. We want to see Lebanon, Jordan and Egypt go to the borders and stop this now. Liberate Al Quds! March to Al Quds!"
These were the words spoken by Lauren Booth (Tony Blair's half-sister-in-law) at the Al Quds Day terror rally organised by the Islamic Human Rights Commission in London's Trafalgar Square yesterday. She had just pledged her support for Hamas.
Go here for pictures and video.

Jews Get Murdered, Israel Apologizes

Of course once again, Israel is supposed to apologize to those who murder its citizens. These are the rules which have been set by islamic supremacists and accepted by the dhimmi west. That is muslims are never required to apologize no matter what atrocities they commit. Instead their Jewish victims must apologize.

Another display of weakness on the part of Israeli leadership in caving to Obama's demand to apologize to Egypt. So what if they overturn the peace treaty? Essentially Egypt already declared it null and void when it aided and abetted the latest jihad massacre of Israeli citizens. Ending the Camp David accords would give Israel justification to retake the Sinai.

US defuses Egyptian-Israeli crisis: Egypt may post troops in E. Sinai DEBKAfile Exclusive Report August 21, 2011, 12:53 AM (GMT+02:00)

Intense diplomatic efforts by Washington Saturday night, Aug. 20, produced a compromise for resolving the Egyptian-Israeli crisis moments before their 1979 peace accord was overturned. Cairo agreed not to recall the Egyptian ambassador from Israel, whereas the Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak apologized publicly for the deaths of three Egyptian policemen in the course of a firefight between Israeli troops and Palestinian terrorists shooting on the Eilat road from both sides of the border. Israel also agreed to a joint probe to determine who caused their deaths. The Israeli deputy ambassador in Cairo posted a formal apology at the Egyptian foreign ministry Saturday night.

debkafile’s Washington sources report that Israel also agreed, when spirits are calmer, to renegotiate certain terms of the Camp David peace accords relating to the demilitarization of Sinai as a buffer between the two former belligerents. The two parties would open talks with American assistance on the posting of Egyptian forces in eastern Sinai along the Gulf of Aqaba coast and the 200-kilometer dividing Egyptian Sinai from the Israeli Negev.

The Palestinian multiple terrorist attack last Thursday, which killed eight Israelis and injured 40 and aimed to kill and kidnap many more, has had the unforeseen consequence of radically rearranging the relative deployments of the Israeli and Egyptian armies along their border.

However, our sources report that in the first hours after the attack, the Israeli government and high command were too bewildered to think clearly and react rationally.

Now it is too late. Egypt’s ruling generals are beyond heeding testimony, however credible, demonstrating that al Qaeda – not Israeli troops or helicopters – was responsible for the Egyptian deaths. Egged on by the Muslim Brotherhood, they have taken the first step on the road to revoking the historic Camp David peace accords.

They can only be turned back if the United States intercedes and urges them to think again and abandon this radical and hazardous course.

Media Still Blames Israel

This is what makes the liberal media so morally repugnant and contemptible. Israeli civilians get murdered by jihadists and the NY Slimes and the BBC spin Israel's response to that as being the cause of the violence. Unbelievable but consistent with the Slimes and the BBC's false narrative of Israel as the aggressor. No amount of heinous atrocities committed against Israeli men, women and children will move these cretins to change that narrative.

CAIR Wants to Stop School From Teaching the Truth about Islam

CAIR-Chicago is whining over the fact that a high school was distributing worksheets that actually tell the truth about islam. Though you can be sure that now the school will behave like proper dhimmis and will see to it that those are replaced by a curriculim that whitewashes islam.

Staff Attorney Rabya Khan Meets with High School Regarding Anti-Muslim Worksheets

CAIR-Chicago l August 16, 2011

By Ben Small, Communications Intern

CAIR-Chicago Staff Attorney Rabya Khan met with officials at a Chicago-area high school on Monday, August 15th, regarding a complaint CAIR-Chicago received by a parent alleging that the high school’s social studies class is distributing misleading worksheets on Islam. The worksheets in question, produced by MindSparks, a California based educational resource company, teaches students that the religion of Islam is oppressive towards women, inherently violent, and played an important role in harboring slavery.

One of the readings contains verses from the Quran which are quoted out-of-context wrongly giving the impression that women are considered inferior to men. A corresponding worksheet then asks: “The Qur’an stresses the equality of all believers. Yet many say its views about men and women definitely give men more power. How does the top passage here from the Qu’ran support this view?” The reading is accompanied by a photo of two women in burqa, a full-body covering worn by only a minority of Muslim women worldwide. The inauthentic translation, imagery, and presentation of information leads students to a biased conclusion about the status of men and women in Islam.

Another reading implies that slavery was an encouraged practice in Islam, and then the corresponding worksheet states “Slavery was common in Islam; however, it took several very different forms. […] Prepare a brief talk to the class on what you learn about these two forms of slavery. Title your talk, “Slavery’s Many Forms in the Islamic World.”” Wrongly suggesting some sort of link between slavery and Islam. In reality, the Qu’ran strongly condemned slavery and offered enticing rewards to those who freed slaves. Prophet Muhammad himself freed numerous slaves and the situation for slaves greatly improved with the advent of Islam.

In the MindSparks’ textbook The Rise of the Modern Middle East, lesson titles include “Islam and Islamic Radicalism”. The parent who brought these reading materials to CAIR-Chicago’s attention expressed concern that that over emphasis on the small number of radical Muslims in the world will reinforce stereotypes that link Islam and terrorism and that students will not receive a balanced understanding of Islam and Muslims.

Rabya Khan met with school officials to convey the importance of presenting balanced perspectives and not perpetuating stereotypes. CAIR-Chicago has requested that the school remove the worksheets, and not use them again or any similar worksheets. Rabya also provided a resource list of organizations that can conduct workshops on Islam, including CAIR-Chicago, and is compiling a list of educational resource companies with balanced materials on Islam and Muslims.

Patrick Leahy Hates Israel

Senator Patrick Leahy wants to cut off military aid to Israel but supports aid to fatah. According to Leahy, supporting Israel and wanting to prevent the murder of Jews amounts to betraying America. This means in Leahy's mind, that supporting aid to a Jew-hating genocidal terror group, which also happens to be an enemy of America, is to therefore be a loyal American. This is consistent with the twisted logic of liberals. Jewish liberals, keep trying to convince yourselves that the demorats are your friends and aren’t virulent anti-Semites.

ZOA Criticizes Sen. Leahy for Seeking Cut in U.S. Aid to Elite I.D.F. Forces News Release

But Leahy supported increased aid to PA

When ZOA Opposed PA aid in ’94, Leahy said to Klein, ‘You’re Not a Real American’

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has criticized Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) for promoting a bill that seeks to cut from the U.S. foreign assistance legislation for 2012 the component from U.S. military aid to Israel that is earmarked for three elite Israel Defense Forces (IDF) units – the Israeli Navy’s Shayetet 13 unit, the undercover Duvdevan unit and the Israel Air Force’s Shaldag unit. These units have been on the front lines protecting Israeli citizens in counter-terrorist operations, hunting down terrorists and securing Israel’s borders. In contrast, Senator Leahy has never called for reducing aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA), despite the PA’s continuing failure to arrest terrorists, outlaw terrorists groups, end the promotion of hatred and violence against Israel and its recently signed unity agreement with Hamas. In fact, he has supported increased aid to the PA.

The ZOA has noted that Senator Leahy’s effort to defund these IDF units has emerged under pressure in his home state from anti-Israel activists seeking to criminalize Israeli self-defense. These activists have sought to have Israel declared guilty of human rights abuses last year when the Israeli Navy’s Shayetet 13 unit lawfully intercepted the Gaza-bound Turkish ship Mavi Mamara to ensure it was free of weaponry. Pro-Hamas operatives and other extremists on board carried out a pre-planned assault upon the Israeli boarding party, leading to the death of nine of the assailants in the resulting clash.

Leahy, who heads the Senate Appropriations Committee’s sub-committee on foreign operations, was the principle sponsor of a 1997 bill prohibiting the United States from providing military assistance or funding to foreign military units suspected of human rights abuses or war crimes.


Obama Aids the Jihad Against Israel

I don't have a shred of doubt that Obama threw Mubarak under the bus and backed
the muslim brotherhood purposely in order to create an additional security threat for the Jewish state emanating from the Sinai and an escalation in the terror war against Israel. Now Israel is threatened from all sides. Obama has two major agendas for his presidency, socializing America and destroying Israel.

Pajamas Media:

News Flash: New Phase in War as Terrorists Cross Egypt-Israel Border, Many Dead
August 18, 2011 - 11:51 am - by Barry Rubin Page 1 of 2 Next -> View as Single Page This isn’t just another terrorist attack — it’s a major escalation, a new phase in the Arab-Israeli conflict in two ways. First, it is the bitter fruit of the U.S-backed downfall of the government of President Husni Mubarak in Egypt, opening the Egypt-Israel border as a new front in the war. Second, it is probably the first successful al-Qaida attack on Israel. (The Palestinian Popular Committees, a Gaza-based al-Qaida affiliate is the prime suspect.)

A group of up to 20 terrorists from the Gaza Strip travelled through Egypt using vehicles, then went through the Egyptian border area without any apparent difficulty. Approaching the Egypt-Israel border they fired at a regularly scheduled public bus and cars on highway 12 — a road between Beersheva and Eilat, then entered Israeli territory. Their armaments included mortars and an RPG, as well as handguns. Soldiers engaged the terrorists in a firefight. Several soldiers were wounded; seven terrorists were killed.

According to several eyewitnesses, the attackers were wearing Egyptian army uniforms, a detail which if true is going to be a major issue. Stolen or sold or provided by low-level sympathizers in the Egyptian army? And the site of the attack was near an Egyptian army outpost which — so far as we know now –didn’t do anything about it. One eyewitness said a terrorist was firing from an Egyptian army position. Again, these details will have to be checked by an investigation.

An explosive device, like the ones used in Iraq, was laid to ambush arriving Israeli troops. This is a very sophisticated and complex operation. Seven Israelis were killed: four people in one family whose car was attacked — including two children, aged four and six — and three soldiers riding on a public bus. At least 30 were wounded. For more than 30 years the Egyptian government ensured peace along the desolate border between the two countries. In the post-Mubarak phase – as I warned back in February – the successor regime is not so committed to the Egypt-Israel peace.

What I pointed out then still applies:

“There are many steps the Egyptian government could take [regarding Israel]: letting weapons flow and terrorists walk across the Egypt-Gaza border; not trying too hard to stop terrorists from crossing the Egypt-Israel border; not providing proper protection to Israeli citizens travelling in Egypt or to the Israeli embassy; recalling Egyptian diplomats from Israel; stepping up hostile and official anti-Israel incitement; and so on….

“Another problem is border security. Again, we are told that it is in the interest of Egypt, especially the army, to avoid having terrorists cross the border into Israel. Yet similar logic has often proven mistaken in previous, similar cases. With junior officers and soldiers sympathizing with Islamism or radical nationalism, the orders of the generals back in Cairo might not be followed with a high degree of discipline. There are already reports of al-Qaida planning to infiltrate into the Sinai to launch cross-border attacks.”

Bibi Refuses to Apologize to Turkey

I'm glad that Bibi has refused to cave to Obama's outrageous demand that Israel apologize to Turkey for the fact that Turkey committed an act of war against Israel by sending the jihadist IHH gang aboard the Mavi Marmara to attack Israeli commandos. While Obama has projected weakness in the face of America's enemies, Israel is the one country he gets tough with. The administration ought to be strong arming Turkey to make an apology to Israel. But muslims are never expected to apologize or acknowledge wrongdoing no matter what acts of aggression and atrocities they commit. The west has indulged this islamic supremacist attitude for decades.

Deadly Consequences for Israel of the "Arab Spring"

These are the fruits of the arab spring. The first Israeli casualties in the aftermath of the Obama administration's policy of throwing Mubarak under the bus and placating the muslim brotherhood. The liberal media cheered the Egyptian muslim brotherhood jihad uprising as a "democracy" and "freedom" movement, but it was actually a movement to bring about a more sharia compliant Egypt and breaking the peace treaty with Israel.

Dozens reported hurt in 3-stage terror attack near Eilat
08/18/2011 12:39

IDF soldiers among casualties; number of bombs go off near IDF patrol along border with Egypt; MDA: terrorists attack bus, private vehicle; PMO spokesperson: 3 terrorists killed.

A three-stage terrorist attack along Israel’s border with Egypt took place Thursday morning when terrorists opened fire at an Egged bus traveling on Road 12 near Eilat.

Close to 10 passengers were wounded, including several in serious and moderate condition, and were evacuated to Yoseftal Hospital in Eilat. A number of soldiers were among the casualties.

Several minutes later, a number of bombs went off next to an IDF patrol traveling along the border with Egypt. There were also reports of mortar fire from Egypt into Israel. The terrorists apparently then moved on to another spot and fired an anti-tank missile at another vehicle, injuring a number of passengers.

Magen David Adom said that terrorists attacked a bus and a private vehicle 20 kilometers north of the site of the first incident. Paramedics said five people there were mortally wounded in that attack.

PMO spokesperson Ofir Gendelman announced on Twitter that three of the terrorists involved in the attack were killed by special forces.

“This seems like a coordinated attack,” a senior IDF officer said. There was also speculation that there may have been more than one terror cell coordinating the attacks.

Commander of the IDF’s Edom Division Brig.-Gen. Tamir Yidayi arrived at the scene of the bus attack and set up a command post to coordinate efforts to capture the perpetrators. The IDF suspects that the terrorists infiltrated into Israel after crossing into Egypt possible from the Gaza Strip.

On Sunday, the Egyptian Military launched a massive operation to capture terrorist cells operating in the Sinai.

Due to concern that terrorists had infiltrated into Israel from Egypt, security officers in Israeli communities along the border were ordered to raise the level of alert and to tell residents to remain inside their home.

More on Rick Perry

I'm tired of politicians in BOTH parties who co-opt stealth jihadists. Rick Perry is among them and should not be the nominee. Why does it always have to come down to a choice of the lesser evil in every election? It is possible to elect principled conservatives who will speak honestly about jihad and sharia and not make phony speeches about the "religion of peace" and how terrorists are distorting true islam. This is hogwash.

Pam Geller is taking alot of heat for exposing the truth about Rick Perry but she is not backing down despite being attacked from all sides. I wonder why a supposedly peaceful islamic group is involved with the Syrian regime? It seems a number of conservatives are willing to give a free pass to Republicans with ties to stealth jihadists. They are just as problematic as the liberals.

Beck Visits the Fogel Family Home

The world has been indifferent and dismissal at best in regard to the horrific massacre of the Fogel family and at worst has actually enabled the genocidal aims of Israel's enemies, especially atrocities against the much maligned and demonized "settlers". Their great crime is daring to be Jews living in the Jewish homeland. It is ONLY Glenn Beck who has continued to speak about the hideous evil done to the Fogels by "palestinian" jihadists. It is only glenn Beck who is calling this out for the monstrous evil that it is. Even other supposedly pro-Israel conservative talk radio hosts only mentioned the Fogel family in passing at the time it happened.

Beck arrives in Israel, broadcasts from there, visits home of massacred Fogels
By Adam Taxin, Philadelphia Jewish Culture Examiner
..By Adam Taxin

Monday, August 15, 2011, 11:10 PM

Glenn Beck arrived in Israel yesterday and broadcast his daily radio show live from Jerusalem earlier today.

Beck, who began the show by saying it has been “an incredible weekend,” is in Israel as part of his much-anticipated “Restoring Courage” event, which is intended to show solidarity with the State of Israel and the Jewish People.

During the first hour of his show, Beck spent time discussing his visit to Itamar in Samaria [part of the region, along with Judea, that those with less-than-warm feelings for Israel prefer to refer to as the “West Bank”]. While in Itamar, Beck visited the home and community of the Fogel family, members of whom were brutally massacred in March by Arab Muslim terrorists who invaded their home while they were observing Shabbat.

In regard to Itamar and the Fogels, Beck today said:

I was just at the home of the Fogel family. I went to Itamar in Judea and Samaria. Our cameras were the first to be allowed into the home. It is empty now, and they couldn’t get all of the blood off of the walls. I will tell you that … this was one of the most horrific, bloodiest massacres I could imagine. It was horrifying. Horrifying.

And yet, in that community, profound hope. ... if you stand in their backyard, you can see the two mountains: the mountain of blessing and the mountain of curse. It is scriptural. Which do you choose? The mountain of blessing or curse?

And this community has both. I can’t believe what people go through here in Israel. And the world stays silent. The media is distorting and … lying to you. And it is important that you know it.

Beck had also, on March 15, spoken emotionally about the massacre of the Fogel family.

The three major Restoring Courage events begin on Sunday.

On Sunday at 1:00 PM EST, Beck will host “Restoring Courage: The Courage to Love” from the Roman amphitheater in Caesaria. This event will feature Pastor John Hagee, Rabbi Shlomo Riskin, historian David Barton and other religious leaders in a program which has, as its foundation, the Biblical stories of Ruth and Esther. The goal, according to Beck’s “Restoring Courage” site, is to “inspire its audiences to display loyalty, courage and love as they stand up for Israel and the Jewish people.”

Next Monday at 1:00 PM EST, the event that will take place is the Holocaust-oriented “Restoring Courage: Courage to Remember.” This event will include the screening of a documentary film that explores the life-long impact of the Holocaust on its victims. That will be followed by a panel discussion and candle-lighting ceremony.

The main “Restoring Courage” event, “Restoring Courage: The Courage to Stand,” will occur next Wednesday at 1:00 PM EST. At that time, Beck will host an event at the Davidson Center in Jerusalem just steps from the Western Wall and the Temple Mount. “The Courage to Stand” will call for unity among all faiths, and, according to the site, “will honor Israelis who have displayed courage in their struggle for survival and peace. It will also issue a challenge to all citizens of the world to stand with and declare their support for Israel. Joining Glenn will be religious leaders, esteemed speakers and entertainers including the Rabbi of the Western Wall, Shumuel Rabinovitch, Academy Award winning actor Jon Voight, internationally renowned singer Dudu Fisher, and the Jerusalem Great Synagogue Choir.”

(Next Tuesday night at 8 PM, Beck’s GBTV will broadcast a special filmed about the stop Beck and his wife Tania made in Auschwitz on their way to Israel.)

Audio from Beck’s Monday, August 15 program is available to subscribers via this link.

Coverage of the various Restoring Courage events will be available via

Forget Rick Perry

It looks as though we have another Chris Christie on our hands in Texas governor Rick Perry who has announced he is running for president. Like Christie, Perry speaks of fiscal conservatism but is clueless about the stealth jihad and has pandered to the agenda of islamic leaders and groups in Texas who's aim is to infiltrate the educational system and propagandize youngsters with lies about islam's contributions and sugarcoating its violent history. It's hard to believe that with all of the information out there in which even ordinary American citizens have access to, that so many politicians in both parties are unaware of the agenda and radical views of the islamic organizations and individuals they cultivate. It seems they are willing to sell out the future of our country to gain power for themselves, and unfortunately these stealth jihad groups are wielding an increasing amount of power and influence in our political system. Even Herman Cain backtracked on his earlier statements about appointing muslims to his cabinet. Is it possible to have politicians who will stand on principle and speak honestly about jihad and sharia?

American Thinker:
Perry's Problematic Pals
By Pamela Geller

Texas Governor Rick Perry announced Saturday that he is going to seek the Republican nomination for President, and in his speech declaring his candidacy, he sounded great: "we reject this President's unbridled fixation on taking more money out of the wallets and pocketbooks of American families and employers and giving it to a central government," Perry said. "'Spreading the wealth' punishes success while setting America on course to greater dependency on government. Washington's insatiable desire to spend our children's inheritance on failed 'stimulus' plans and other misguided economic theories have given us record debt and left us with far too many unemployed."

Perry promises to fix all that: "We'll create jobs. We'll get America working again. We'll create jobs and we'll build wealth, we'll truly educate and innovate in science, and in technology, engineering and math. We'll create the jobs and the progress needed to get America working again."

Sounds good. But Perry has been sucked into the propaganda vortex, and is now wielding his enormous power to influence changes in the schoolrooms and in the curricula to reflect a sharia compliant version of Islam. He is a friend of the Aga Khan, the multimillionaire head of the Ismailis, a Shi'ite sect of Islam that today proclaims its nonviolence but in ages past was the sect that gave rise to the Assassins. Perry has concluded at least two cooperation agreements between the state of Texas and the Ismailis, including a comprehensive program to feed children in Texas public schools and taqiyya nonsense about how Islam is a religion of peace. Another agreement stipulates that Texas officials will work with the Ismailis in the "fields of education, health sciences, natural disaster preparedness and recovery, culture and the environment." Perry let on that this was all about whitewashing Islam's bloody historical and modern-day record: "traditional Western education speaks little of the influence of Muslim scientists, scholars, throughout history, and for that matter the cultural treasures that stand today in testament to their wisdom."

PA Honors Mother of Terrorist

"Palestinian" mothers of suicide bombers take pride in the fact that their children blew themselves up to massacre Jews. A depraved society which celebrates the act of mass murder and indoctrinates their children that their greatest aspiration in life should be to blow themselves up in a crowd of Jews, is certainly not deserving of statehood. Yet instead of treating "palestinian" society as a pariah, the world demands that Israel surrender territory to these bloodthirsty hordes who scream for a genocide of the Jews. And our tax money goes to support them. And Israel, not the "palestinians" are treated as the obstacle to peace and the cause of all the strife in the region. This is how perverse the western intellectual elite are. And our president and leftists in general, insist that islam is worthy of respect, a religion of peace and you are a bigot if you regard it as being diametrically opposed to our values and a dangerous threat.

PA TV's "Best Mothers" Honors Mother of Suicide TerroristPA TV program "Best Mothers" honors suicide terrorist by visiting her mother who relates to the bombing as a wedding, "Darin is a bride"
by Arutz Sheva Staff
Published: 12/08/11, 12:05 PM

On occasion of the Ramadan, PA TV has launched a new program called The Best Mothers. Every day, the edited 10-minute program shows a different Palestinian mother in her home, talking about her children.

Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) reports that last week, PA TV chose to visit the mother of Darin Abu Aisheh, a suicide bomber who blew herself up at a roadblock in 2002, wounding three Israelis.
PA TV focused on a poster of the terrorist displayed in the mother's home with the following text and Quran quote: "Fight them, and Allah will punish them by your hands, cover them with shame, help you (to victory) over them, heal the breasts of Believers"

The mother spoke with pride of how she received the news of her daughter's death, seeing it as her wedding: "I didn't scream, even my scarf stayed on my head. Everyone came. Everyone heard what happened... I was sitting and started to sing to her. I said, 'It's the night before your wedding, Darin, and we won't see you anymore, my daughter.' People around me said, 'Allah be with you.' I said, 'I haven't gone mad, I'm not crazy. I want to sing, Darin is a bride.'"

PMW's Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik explain that while Islamic tradition says that male martyrs marry the 72 dark-eyed virgins of Paradise, there is also a belief that a female martyr becomes one of the virgins and marries a martyr.

Palestinian Media Watch has reported that also PA's Minister of Prisoners' Affairs, Issa Karake, recently glorified suicide terrorist Darin Abu Aisheh when he emphasized the achievements of different female terrorists on the occasion of International Women's Day and Mother's Day.

Ron Paul's Demented Foreign Policy Views

Anti-semite and isolationist Ron Paul, like the left, is part of the blame America first crowd. And he doesn't see a problem with Iran having nuclear weapons since Russia and China have them. He is unable to distinguish between adversarial but rational regimes with nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons in the hands of a maniacal, genocidal regime in Tehran which intends to use those weapons offensively, has threatened to wipe Israel off the map and who's leader believes that he must facilitate Armageddon in order to bring forth the twelfth imam. This is why Ron Paul is so dangerous. I realize Paul doesn't give a damn about Israel but Iran has an agreement with chavez to place ballistic missiles in Venezuela which can reach us and has its hezbollah proxy operating in the tri-border region of South America. Let's not forget Iran has killed our troops in Iraq. All of this shows that Iran is a direct threat to us, not just something which can simply be dismissed as a country on the other side of the world and therefore not our problem.

Glenn Beck:

Santorum v. Ron Paul on foreign policy
Friday, Aug 12, 2011 at 2:25 PM EDT

Ron Paul and Rick Santorum clashed over foreign policy in the Middle East – specifically when it came to Iran. On the one hand, Paul vehemently opposed sanctions against the country for developing nuclear weapons, pointing out that America never sanctioned the Soviet Union which was a much bigger threat to the United States. Other the other hand, Santorum felt that Iran posed a huge threat to Israel, and as an ally we should support them.

“I think that (sanctions) makes it much worse. Why would that be so strange if the Soviets and the Chinese have nuclear weapons, we tolerated the Soviets. We didn’t attack them and they were a much greater than danger. They were the greatest danger to us in our whole history but you don’t go to war against them. I mean, this whole idea of sanctions, the free traders, they’re the ones who put on these trade sanctions. This is why we still don’t have a trade relationship with Cuba. It’s about time we talk to Cuba and stop fighting these wars that are about 30 or 40 years old,” Paul argued.

Santorum responded, “As the author of the Iran support act which he is criticizing, because I authored it when I was the United States Senate, would actually impose sanctions on Iran because of their nuclear program. Iran is not Iceland, Ron. Iran is a country that has been at war with us since 1979. Iran is a country that has killed more American men and women in uniform in Iraq and Afghanistan than the Iraquis and Afghanistans have. The Iranians are the existential threat to the State of Israel. You ask the Israelis what keeps them up at night. It’s the Iranians funding the Hamas and Hezbollah.”

While Glenn tends to agree with Ron Paul on some libertarian issues, he sided with Santorum on this foreign policy issue. “I’m telling you, there’s nobody that can school anyone on the Middle East like Rick Santorum,” Glenn said. continue

The Catastrophic Consequences of Liberalism

The riots in England are the result of years of the combined liberal policies of multiculturalism, moral relativism, permissive attitudes regarding drugs and sexuality and a massive welfare state which rewards these behaviors. What was once a civilized nation has now descended into barbarity. Will leftists even acknowledge or recognize their own responsibility for creating this chaos? They are so clueless that they will likely claim the riots have been caused by not enough government handouts.

Britain’s liberal intelligentsia has smashed virtually every social value By Melanie Phillips, The Daily Mail

So now the chickens have well and truly come home terrifyingly to roost. The violent anarchy that has taken hold of British cities is the all-too-predictable outcome of a three-decade liberal experiment which tore up virtually every basic social value.


The married two-parent family, educational meritocracy, punishment of criminals, national identity, enforcement of the drugs laws and many more fundamental conventions were all smashed by a liberal intelligentsia hell-bent on a revolutionary transformation of society.

Those of us who warned over the years that they were playing with fire were sneered at and smeared as Right-wing nutters who wanted to turn the clock back to some mythical golden age.

Looters in Peckham. The riots have been fuelled by moral collapse says Melanie Phillips

Now we can see what they have brought about in the unprecedented and horrific scenes of mob violence, with homes and businesses going up in flames, and epidemic looting.

Clearly, there is some as yet unidentified direction and co-ordination behind the anarchy. But what is so notable and distressing is that, after the first day when adults were clearly involved, this mayhem has been carried out in the main by teenagers and children, some as young as eight.
The idea that they should not steal other people’s property, or beat up and rob passers-by, appears to be as weird and outlandish to them as the suggestion that they should fly to the moon.

These youths feel absolutely entitled to go ‘on the rob’ and steal whatever they want. Indeed, they are incredulous that anyone should suggest they might pass up such an opportunity.

What has been fuelling all this is not poverty, as has so predictably been claimed, but moral collapse. What we have been experiencing is a complete breakdown of civilised behaviour among children and young people straight out of William Golding’s seminal novel about childhood savagery, Lord Of The Flies.

White House Denies Jerusalem is Part of Israel

Even with the nation undergoing financial turmoil and the world in chaos, the Obama administration still has time to continue waging jihad against the Jewish state. Our government is going along with the obscene historical revisionst claim by islamic supremacists that the holiest city in Judaism doesn't belong to the Jewish state and the Jewish people. On its website, the White House erases all references of Jerusalem as being located in Israel.

The Weekly Standard:

At 3:22 p.m., I posted this photo of Vice President Joe Biden and Shimon Peres, with an accompanying caption that indicated it had been taken last year in Jerusalem, Israel:

The point of posting the photo was to show that, although the State Department refuses to say that Jerusalem is in Israel, even the White House website acknowledges this elementary truth (at least for Western Jerusalem, west of the 1949 armistic lines). But not any more. Within two hours of posting, the White House has apparently gone through its website, cleansing any reference to Jerusalem as being in Israel.

Glenn Beck on Israeli TV

Glenn Beck has moral clarity, so naturally that makes him a pariah with the left. A left so twisted in its worldview that to them supporters of Israel like Beck are "crazy right wing religious extremists" while supporting the genocidal hamas is considered to be reasonable and moderate.

UNESCO Attempts to Erase Jewish History

What’s even worse than islamic supremacists attempts to steal the property and heritage of the Jewish people and falsely claiming Jewish holy sites as belonging to them, is the west going along with this obscenity.

UNESCO’s War against the Jews

from Atlas Shrugs by Pamela Geller

The onslaught against the Jews is endless, constant; the evil that eats at men’s souls.

UNESCO against the Jews

Special: UN’s cultural body seems to be engaged in inquisition-like campaign against Israel

By Giulio Meotti Published: 07.19.11

The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) adopted a decision calling on Israel to immediately cease all archaeological works in the Old City of Jerusalem. In particular, UNESCO, one of the UN’s most prominent and influential agencies, attacked the renovation of the Mughrabi Bridge that links the Western Wall plaza and Temple Mount.

The decision, initiated and promoted by Arab states, was adopted by consensus of the Western members of the commission. Indeed, the vote is the latest anti-Jewish initiative launched by the UN office meant to promote culture, education and science around the world. In fact, UNESCO’s robber barons are sanctifying the current global campaign aimed liquidating the legitimacy of the Israeli regime.

In 2009, UNESCO designated Jerusalem as “capital of Arab culture,” working with Palestinian Authority officials and key Arab figures to protest against what they described as “the Israeli occupation of Holy Jerusalem.” Other cities granted the title over the years were Algiers, Damascus, Cairo, Tunis, Amman, Beirut and Khartoum.

The Arabs find it difficult to convincingly portray Israel as usurper of the land as long as the world believes there is a huge connection between the people of the Bible and the land of the Bible. UNESCO is denying this connection by depicting Jewish history in the Middle East as no more than an insignificant, brief sojourn by arrogant colonizers.

UNESCO appears to deny that the Jewish people has laid its roots in Israel more than 4,000 years ago, or that 1,000 years before Christ, King David made Jerusalem the Jewish city par excellence, never entirely abandoned even in times of deadly persecution.

The City of David in Jerusalem, a major target of UNESCO’s anti-Jewish fury, is now the hottest open archaeological site in the world, with biblical artifacts, ancient burial spots and royal seals. There, UNESCO is using archeology to bash Israel and treats Israeli archeologists as nationalistic martinets.
In recent years, UNESCO increased its collaboration with ISESCO, the cultural body of the Organization of the Islamic Conference. According to ISESCO’s propaganda, the Biblical story and the Jewish temples are only fiction, Jewish monuments are Islamic treasures stolen by the Zionists, and Israeli archeological works are criminal acts against Muslims. continue

CAIR Chief Appears On Hamas’ Al-Quds TV Channel…hat tip Weasel

Shockingly, on the same program the Jews were blamed for the Norway terror attacks.

(IPT) — The executive director of the Council of American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) spoke on a Hamas-linked television channel, telling Arabic-speaking viewers that right-wing ideologues are fueling violence against Muslim Americans. It’s not the first time that a CAIR official has hyped American Islamophobia to hostile foreign media sources.

Chris Christie Dismisses Those Who Warn of Sharia As “Crazies”

To those conservatives pushing for a Chris Christie run, be careful what you wish for. A campaign between Obama and Christie would be a win-win for the muslim brotherhood. I guess Christie is unaware that a sharia ruling has already been made by a NJ judge in favor of a muslim man who raped his wife, which was fortunately overturned. We are also supposed to overlook the fact that as a defense attorney this judge he appointed represented terrorists. Those who warn about sharia are not “crazy”. They have very legitimate concerns. All one has to do is look toward Europe to see the advancement of sharia law. Chris Christie would be as detrimental to the nation as Obama. This man should never be president.

US Chris Christie Blasts ‘Crazies’ After Appointing Muslim Judge: The ‘Sharia Law Business Is Just Crap’
•Posted on August 4, 2011 at 7:15am by Jonathon M. Seidl

I guess you can call Chis Christie the antithesis of Herman Cain.

The New Jersey governor appointed a Muslim judge this year, something Cain said he would never do (and then backtracked), and during a press conference yesterday answered questions about it. Or more appropriately put, he delivered a trademarked, passionate tongue-lashing of those who questioned his decision.
Mediaite has some of Christie’s most colorful quotes (which I’ve bolded):

“Ignorance is behind the criticism of Sohail Mohammed,” he told a reporter asking about the complaints that he may be inadequate to be a judge because he defended Muslim Americans who were wrongly arrested post-9/11. “He is an extraordinary American who is an outstanding lawyer and played an integral role in the post-September 11th period in building bridges between the Muslim American community in this state and law enforcement,” Gov. Christie argued, adding that he was “disgusted, candidly, by some of the questions he was asked… at the Senate judiciary committee.”

But it was a follow-up question on the fear of Sharia Law that set the governor off. “Sharia Law has nothing to do with this at all, it’s crazy!” he cried. “The guy is an American citizen!” He concluded that the “Sharia Law business is just crap… and I’m tried of dealing with the crazies,” adding with disgust and frustration that “it’s just unnecessary to be accusing this guy of things just because of his religious background.” continue

Terrorist Inmates at UK Prison Planning Massive Attack

What's bizarre is that these prisoners are even allowed to conduct prayer sessions at all. These are terrorists, enemies who are at war with England and yet they are accorded the respect to conduct their "religious" rituals. Why? What will it take for the west to grow a spine and stop allowing our enemies to trample all over us? Why are we providing al qaeda inmates with every accommodation, from halal meals to korans and prayer rugs?

U.K.: Muslim prison inmates believed to be planning "massive attack," staff nearly lost control after Friday prayers (hat tip Marisol)

The excuse du jour for the threat of violence is a desire for revenge after bin Laden's death, though they weren't exactly a group of pacifists up to that point, either. "Muslim Boys gang are 'planning massive attack' at Belmarsh prison in revenge for Osama bin Laden killing," by Greig Box-Turnbull for The Mirror, August 2 (thanks to Weasel Zippers):

Governors at Britain’s top terror jail believe al-Qaeda extremists are planning a major attack as payback for Osama bin Laden’s death.
Security has been stepped up to “unprecedented” levels at Belmarsh prison after warnings that the Muslim Boys gang is plotting a revenge mission. A 15-strong riot squad in stab-proof vests has hidden around the jail’s chapel during Muslim prayers on Fridays in case of an attack.
Another team of officers has been on standby ready to assist.
Prisoners on House Block One, which includes 39 terror suspects, added to the tension by staging a mass show of defiance on Friday.
Inmates refused to return to their cells and a source says “staff very nearly lost control of the jail”.
The standoff was only ended when officers brandished batons and demanded a retreat as they marched towards the prisoners.
The source said: “It’s a powder keg waiting to go off.
“There are concerns it will take an officer’s death before the Muslim Boys are tackled seriously.
“The levels of security being employed are unprecedented.Management are worried the Muslim Boys are planning an incident in Bin Laden’s honour on a scale never seen before.
“Security around the past three Friday prayers has been massive.”
The prayers at the Category A prison in South-East London are attended by high profile terror figures including hook-handed preacher of hate Abu Hamza.
The Muslim Boys, a splinter group of al-Qaeda, are thought to have been plotting since Bin Laden was killed by US troops in May.

Michelle Bachmann on the Debt Ceiling

Greece is a society that is becoming bankrupt because of its huge welfare state. Is this what we want to be emulating? That's a question for those who advocate statist policies. Michelle Bachmann told it like it is. American society based on free markets is what made us the most prosperous nation in history. Too bad we are abandoning that for a failed socialist model. It's hard to believe that more than 20 years after the Berlin wall fell and the failure of socialism starkly revealed, people still promote this antiquated ideology.

Jihad Television

Al jazeera is coming to America. The cable providers that will be carrying this station are jihad-enabling traitors.

Atlas Shrugs:

Terror TV Launches in New York CityMon Aug 1, 2011 10:14 from Atlas Shrugs by Pamela Geller.This comes just seven short years after Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called the broadcaster’s reporting "vicious, inaccurate and inexcusable" and President George W. Bush joked about bombing it, and senior Bush officials caricatured the channel as an anti-Semitic, anti-American outlet for Islamo-porn. And here we are ten years after the largest and bloodiest Islamic attack on America, and Al Jazeera is launching in New York City on Time Warner Cable. This is a major step in the network’s goal of expanding jihad propaganda further into the U.S. cable market and gives it a chance to reach two million households in a world capital of culture and commerce. The network will also launch on VerizonFiOS in the coming days.

How much did those traitors sell us out for?

The overtly covert — or is that covertly overt? — propaganda war against the West is being waged on all fronts, but no organization has done as much to spread hate, lies and incitement to violence as Al-Jazeera. Al-Jazeera is the leading terrorist propaganda organization in the world. Jihad murder mastermind Anwar al-Awlaki has praised Al-Jazeera, and several years ago one of its most prominent reporters was arrested on terror charges. Al-Jazeera also has for years been the recipient of numerous Al-Qaeda videos featuring bin Laden, Zawahiri, and American traitor Adam Gadahn. Yet they never seem to be able to trace where these videos are coming from. They have repeatedly been set up at the point of attack right before a bomb went off, so that they could take the picture of the slaughtered, dismembered bodies.

How did they know?

Israel's Marxist Media

More free market policies have made Israel a world technological and scientific power and greatly increased its prosperity, thereby increasing Israel’s global standing. Why would Israelis want to destroy that? If Jews are so smart why are they so easily manipulated by the marxist media? It’s astounding that more than two decades after the cold war and the proven failure of socialism, that somehow those ideas still resonate.

Our World: The media revolutionaries By CAROLINE B. GLICK, JPOST

Protesters are effectively demanding destruction of free market, reversion to state-controlled economy that doomed Israel its first 45 years.

Last Monday Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz gave an interview to Channel 2’s news anchor Yonit Levy during the prime-time news broadcast. Levy began the interview with a revealing “question.”

Oozing professional probity, Levy said, “I assume you came here armed with wonderful data about the drop in unemployment and rising economic growth, but I want to ask you, Mr. Steinitz if for all your data you’ve forgotten the people, you’ve forgotten an entire class of working people who can’t live?”

Not that she has an opinion.

Levy’s question encapsulates the pathology of the Israeli media and the public discourse it engenders. In the case at hand, it is true that the facts show Israel has never been economically better off. But how about “the people”?

Levy and her comrades want to discuss abstractions, not facts. Abstractions like the amorphous “people,” are attractive because they are meaningless and are therefore subject to politically correct interpretation. Facts are unattractive because they contradict the media’s effectively uniform worldview and prejudices.

Due to this uniformity, for the past three weeks Israel’s public discourse has been dominated by the media-supported “social justice” protesters. Three weeks ago fewer than a hundred protesters set up tents along Tel Aviv’s tony Rothschild Boulevard and demanded lower rents in Tel Aviv – Israel’s highest priced real estate market.

Ignoring the basic laws of supply and demand, the media immediately embraced the protesters as “the authentic voice of the nation.” And so Israel’s newest “social revolution” began.

And it has all been downhill from there.
