Ron Paul Defends Iran

Ron Paul is shilling for the genocidal Iranian terror regime, defending its threat to close the Straight of Hormuz. So Paul's opposition to the use of military force against Iran cannot be explained away by the concern over the risks that would pose to us, since the scoundrel is also against even economic sanctions. This means that Ron Paul actually wants Iran to be able to obtain nuclear weapons unimpeded.

Paul: Iran justified in closing Strait of Hormuz NewsCNS News by: Patrick GoodenoughFriday, December 30, 2011

Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, suggests Iran would be justified in closing the Strait of Hormuz in response to economic sanctions. Photo Credit:AP As Iran ratcheted up its rhetoric Thursday about closing the Strait of Hormuz, Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul revisited his earlier criticisms of Western policy towards Tehran, adding that Iran would be justified in cutting off the strategic waterway in response to sanctions. ...

At a campaign event in Iowa Thursday, Paul called Western sanctions imposed against Iran over its nuclear activities “horrendous” and “acts of war,” while repeating earlier assertions that Iran would understandably want to develop a nuclear weapons capability, the Los Angeles Times reported.

On Iran’s threat to close Hormuz, the Texan congressman said that as president he would not respond with military action to any such move, as he would not consider it an act of war against the United States. Instead, he would refer the matter to the U.S. Congress

Canadian TV Host Doesn't Think Israel Deserves to Exist

While islam wages a relentless and bloodthirsty global jihad, the wretched and moral degenerate leftist cowards of the western elite believe that it is Israel that doesn't deserve to exist. The left has nothing to say about the unspeakable horrors perpetrated upon women, children and non-muslims in islamic countries whether by regimes or terror groups. But they constantly condemn Israel on the basis of invented "crimes". It goes to show how far the west has degenerated when the barbarians surrounding Israel are given legitimacy and treated with respect while Israel itself, the only civilized and free country in the region, is treated as a pariah. You never hear anyone saying nations with the world's most brutal regimes don't deserve to exist, yet this is considered a legitimate opinion when it comes to Israel.

Quebec TV Host Stéphane Gendron Says Israel Doesn’t Deserve to Exist (December 29, 2011)

Quebec TV Host Stéphane Gendron Says Israel Doesn’t Deserve to Exist

By: Mike Fegelman, Executive Director December 29, 2011

Dear HonestReporting Canada Subscribers,

We previously alerted you to notorious Israel-hater and Quebec TV show host Stéphane Gendron's offensive comments where he shockingly claimed Israel indiscriminately murders innocent Palestinians with bulldozers. As you may recall, Gendron declared the following on the November 2 broadcast of Face à Face on V Television:
"The Minister of Foreign Affairs, John Baird, decided not to make further contributions to UNESCO, why? Because the U.S. decided to cut its funding, why? Because Palestine dared to be admitted to UNESCO. This is appalling! It is an affront to peace! Do you know what Israel did? In revenge for the admission of Palestine to UNESCO, they decided to build 2000 homes in areas that do not belong to them, the occupied territories, so they are going to bulldoze people, kill people, they will give them 5 minutes to get out and then they'll run people down with bulldozers. And Canada supports this."

More than 150 HRC members responded to our call to action by registering complaints with V Television network. Furthermore, our Youtube clip of Gendron's comments was viewed over 23,000 times. The National Post also weighed in, publishing an editorial entitled "Bulldozing the facts" that shone the spotlight on Gendron by declaring that his statements had constituted "a vicious libel".

qaradawi Mediating US-taliban Talks

Why is the US government giving credibility to a monster who advocates the genocide of Jews? Described as Egypt's new hitler, yusuf qaradawi is a mediator in talks between the US and the taliban. Why are we even negotiating with the taliban instead of defeating them?


"Egypt's New Hitler," Vile Jew-Hater Qaradawi, Key Mediator In U.S.-Taliban Talksfrom Atlas Shrugs by Pamela GellerQaradawi, the vile America-hater and virulent Jew-hater, the spiritual guide of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, is an advocate of suicide bombings who has often called for the death of all Jews: “...oh Allah, take this oppressive, tyrannical band of people…take this oppressive, Jewish Zionist band of people…do not spare a single one of them. Oh Allah, count their numbers, and kill them, down to the very last one.”

Remember that this is the annihilationist whom the Ground Zero mosqueteer Imam Rauf lauded and admired. Listen here, in his own words.

Jihad Against Nigeria's Christians

It’s always something that their victims did to provoke the islamic jihadists into bloodthirsty rampages. That is standard “reporting” from the NY slimes and the rest of the liberal media. Any excuse so as not to acknowledge that this is jihad, that their religion commands them to subjugate and slaughter those who will not become muslim or submit to islam. And no matter how many such horrific massacres perpetrated in the name of islam occur around the world, even as the perpetrators shout “alahu akbar” and force their victims to recite verses from the koran, the media and government officials will never admit that the motivation for these horrific atrocities lies with islam itself.

Nigeria’s Christmas Present – Blowing Up Christians The New York Times Screws It Up Again

by Raymond Ibrahim, HUDSON NY

Several churches in northern Nigeria were bombed December 25, in what has been described as “Nigeria’s blackest Christmas ever.” The attacks, perpetrated by the Muslim militant group Boko Haram, killed at least 39 people, “the majority dying on the steps of a Catholic church [in Madalla near the capital of Abuja] after celebrating Christmas Mass as blood pooled in dust from a massive explosion.” Charred bodies and dismembered limbs lay scattered around the destroyed church.

The world, as usual, offered its wishy-washy, half-hearted condemnations. Although Boko Haram has been bellowing its straightforward goals for over a decade — enforcing Sharia law and subjugating, if not eliminating Nigeria’s Christians — the word so many Western leaders, from the White House to the Vatican, selected to characterize this latest Muslim attack on Christians was “senseless”— which implies no motive, no goal, no rhyme, no reason. Reading the mainstream media’s coverage of these attacks, one walks away without any sense of continuity or context.

Consider the coverage by the New York Times’s Adam Nossiter. After stating the facts, Nossiter explains:

The sect, known as Boko Haram, until now mostly targeted the police, government and military in its insurgency effort, but the bombings on Sunday represented a new, religion-tinged front, a tactic that threatens to exploit the already frayed relations between Nigeria’s nearly evenly split populations of Christians and Muslims…

This sentence is teeming with problems. For starters, Boko Haram has not stopped terrorizing Nigerian Christians — killing thousands of them, and bombing or burning hundreds of churches. Considering that just last Christmas Eve, 2010, Boko Haram bombed several churches, killing nearly 40 Christian worshippers, the New York Times’s characterization of these latest attacks as “represent[ing] a new, religion-tinged front” is not only unconscionable, but unprofessional.

Boko Haram—whose full name in Arabic is “People of Sunna for Da’wa [Islamization] and Jihad [Holy War]“—represents a religious Islamic front that is hostile to all things non-Muslim, with Christians at the very top.

In the last couple of months, Boko Haram has carried out attacks on dozens of other churches, bombing some, torching others. In one instance, its members not only opened fire on a congregation of mostly women and children, killing dozens, they also executed two children of an ex-terrorist because he converted to Christianity; murdered Christian pastors in cold blood; and “went to shops owned by Christians, ordering them to recite verses from the Quran” — killing those who could not.

Just last month, hundreds of armed Muslims from Boko Haram invaded Christian villages “like a swarm of bees,” killing, looting, and destroying everything in sight. At the end of their four-hour rampage, at least 130 Christians had been killed, and another 45 slaughtered in another village by another set of Muslims, screaming “Allahu Akbar!” ["Allah s the Greatest!"]. Hundreds of Christians are still missing, and thousands have fled the region.

Of course, from reading Nossiter, who asserts that Boko Haram’s attacks on Christians are somehow “new,” you would not know any of this. His report insists on willfully refracting reality through the approved paradigm of political-correctness — minimizing or ignoring the countless occasions of Muslims recently persecuting Christians around the world (lest it appear that he might be “siding” with Christians), while at the same time always putting the best spin on Muslim violence (lest it appear that he might be even slightly critical of Islam).

Nossiter’s New York Times report goes on to state how there are “already frayed relations between -Nigeria’s nearly evenly split populations of Christians and Muslims” — language that suggests both camps are equally hostile, even though it is unclear what Christian terror groups have recently been bombing mosques in Nigeria while screaming “God is Greatest!”

Nossiter then goes on to offer other standard canards, including the suggestion that the Nigerian government’s “heavy-handed” response to the terrorists is responsible for their terror — comparable to saying that the rooster is responsible for the morning:

Critics of the government campaign against Boko Haram say that not only has the effort failed, but it has increased the sect’s appeal, because the security forces’ heavy-handed tactics have given it new sympathizers.

The New York Times’s Nossiter even manages to insert another mainstream media favorite: the myth that “poverty causes terrorism”— despite acres of evidence that many of the most notorious Islamic terrorists are well educated and come from wealthy families, and that the terrorists’ Christian victims are usually worse off than they:

The sect’s attacks have been further bolstered by festering economic resentment in the impoverished and relatively neglected north, which has an exploding birthrate, low levels of literacy and mass unemployment.

In short, Boko Haram’s actions have been anything but “senseless”: its terror campaign has seen Christians reduced in number—either by murder or by being tormented until they fled their villages. It has also seen hundreds of churches eliminated — all events that correspond nicely with Boko Haram’s outspoken goals of creating an anti-infidel Sharia state.

“Senseless” is better reserved for the New York Times and other mainstream media which, in the cause of disinfecting, delousing and deodorizing events until they correspond to the way their writers and editorial boards wish they had gone, distort and lie about the truth.

Liberals and Tim Tebow

Its easy for cowards such as maher to attack devout Christians in the secure
knowledge that they don't have to worry about a fatwa being placed against them.
Tebow isn't the greatest quarterback, but he is a man of character and
morals, which is a refreshing change from the usual degenerate whoremongers,
violent misgynists, rapists, drug takers and criminals in sports. After being
disillusioned that a number of sports heroes turned out to be scumbags, people
should be thankful for the role model that Tebow is. Instead however, he is
ridiculed and mocked and treated with hostility. Michael Vic doesn't get treated
with such hostility as Tebow.

Contrast this to the fawning treatment given to the muslim Folsom high school football team from Michigan. The media gushes over how they combine their faith with football and their holding midnight practices so as not to interfere with ramadan.

Then there is the matter of when Tebow's mom was pregnant with him she was told to abort to save her life. She gave birth and lived and she and her son thrived. As a pro-life symbol, the pro-abortionists despise Tim Tebow for existing.

Bill Maher Takes Heat Over Tim Tebow TweetTuesday, December 27, 2011 9:41 amWritten by: Ben Maller
\0020 5198 1452
Even in defeat, Tim Tebow creates controversy -- this time in Tinseltown.

HBO's Bill Maher created a firestorm over the Christmas weekend with a scathing reaction to Tebow's subpar performance in Buffalo. Shortly after Tebow threw four interceptions in the Broncos' lopsided defeat to the Bills, Maher turned to his Twitter page to poke fun at the very religious NFL star. (And a warning: Maher's tweet includes harsh language and divisive references.)

"Wow, Jesus just [screwed] #TimTebow bad! And on Xmas Eve! Somewhere ... Satan is tebowing, saying to Hitler "Hey, Buffalo’s killing them," Maher tweeted.

Maher, a proud atheist who supports legalizing pot, same-sex marriage and is a board member for PETA, upset a number of conservatives, according to Entertainment Weekly. Eric Bolling of Fox News responded to Maher by calling him "disgusting vile trash," among other things.

Tebow didn't bother responding to Maher, but plenty of his fans did. Some called for a mass cancellation of HBO subscriptions over the offensive tweet. "Real Time with Bill Maher," is scheduled to return to the premium cable channel on January 13, 2012.

The Arab-muslim Lobby

We hear all the time about the Israel lobby and its supposed omnipotent powers controlling the US and other western governments. In reality of course, it is the vast insidious Arab-muslim-oil lobby which has a chokehold on western governments, dictating its Mideast policies. How else have we come to a situation in which an invented "palestinian" people claim that the ancient homeland of the Jewish people really belongs to them and that the Jews are colonialist occupiers, and the world simply accepts this preposterous claim? Why else would the world be demanding the creation of a 22nd Arab state, a 57th muslim state and a second Arab-muslim state in mandatory Palestine out of land to be taken away from the sole, tiny Jewish state? And this injustice against the Jewish people we are told is a fair, just and equitable solution. Whenever you hear people in the media, academia and former diplomats ranting against an insidious Israel lobby, chances are that they themselves are bought and paid for by the wretched saudi-Arab-muslim lobby.

Daniel Greenfield article: Between Mecca and Jerusalem

Between Mecca and Jerusalem

Posted: 25 Dec 2011 07:46 PM PST

Forget Athens and Jerusalem, the new dialectic is between Mecca and Jerusalem. On one side is support for the spread of a repressive theocratic ideology across the region and around the world through violence and intimidation, on the other side is the rise of indigenous states from the pre-Islamic era employing technology and ingenuity to transform the region.

Every time a politician pays tribute to Saudi Arabia, a journalist endorses the Arab Spring and a diplomat goes on about how Israel must make concessions to Islamic terrorists or it will destabilize the region, you see a man used to raising his arse and bowing his pate to Mecca.

It has become mainstream to speak of the Saudi royals as reformers and allies, while denouncing Israel as a reactionary backward state that's always causing trouble. The Saudis and their Gulf pals can pony up the Riyals to slam planes into the White House and the Pentagon, slowly behead women for witchcraft and promote an ideology so vicious that it gives Nazism an even run in the 100 meter genocide dash-- and come away with applause. But when an Israeli Prime Minister goes to the negotiating table with his worst enemies, he's greeted with a chorus of boos.

There was a time when Western capitals aspired to be the new Jerusalem, now they are turning into the new Mecca, the new Riyadh, the new Beirut and the new Cairo. Paris and London and a dozen other capitals have turned their back on Jerusalem and are quickly turning into meccas for Muslim immigrants and their Saudi funded mosques where barely beard speakers hiss hate into hand-held microphones.

On the foreign policy chessboard, their more upscale versions do the same. Scratch one of those dispassionate critics of Israel and you more often than not find a man with his head bent low toward Mecca.

Take Thomas Friedman whose vitriol finally boiled over into the lowest kind of Israel bashing even by New York Times standards. Good old Tom had been swanning around with the Saudi royals for a while now and when he writes that congressional standing ovations for Netanyahu were paid for by the Israeli lobby (were all the standing ovations that the King of Jordan received paid for by the Jordanian lobby?) he's just another poodle in his hairy master's arms barking on command.

Consider Chas Freeman, who was literally on the Saudi payroll (not to mention that of the People's Republic of China) and whose failed appointment occasioned a lot of headlines about a talented fellow being kept away from drawing up the National Intelligence Estimate because of those Jews. But Freeman, Dennis Blair's boy, walking papers might have been more accurately stamped as, "Saudi royal family employee nominated by collaborator in Muslim Indonesian genocide of Christians fails to secure vital national security position."

When Walt and Mearsheimer's The Israel Lobby article was first published in the United States, the publication that featured the screed was Middle East Policy, a generically named journal put out by the Middle East Policy Council, an organization presided over by Chas Freeman and funded by our friends in Saudi Arabia. It was ironic to see a paper attacking the influence of the Israeli lobby appearing in a journal put out by the Saudi lobby, but also completely predictable.

Ron Paul's Antisemitism Exposed

Those who actually believe or pretend to believe that Ron Paul is not an antisemite but simply opposed to foreign aid and is merely an isolationst who opposes any intervention in foreign affairs, this should remove all doubt. To his hard core followers this won't matter because it is what they believe about Jews and Israel as well. One doesn't have to actually utter a slur to be a bigot. The fact that Paul opposes Israel's very existence and thinks all of the Jewish state should be "returned" to the Arabs makes him an antisemite. The Jews liberated the land what was stolen from them by the Arab muslims. Not only is Paul an antisemite but he is ignorant of history.

Statement from fmr. Ron Paul staffer on Newsletters, Anti-Semitism by Eric Dondero, Right Wing News

Fmr. Senior Aide, US Cong. Ron Paul, 1997 – 2003
Campaign Coordinator, Ron Paul for Congress, 1995/96
National Organizer, Draft Ron Paul for President, 1991/92
Travel Aide/Personal Asst. Ron Paul, Libertarian for President

...Is Ron Paul an Anti-Semite? Absolutely No. As a Jew, (half on my mother’s side), I can categorically say that I never heard anything out of his mouth, in hundreds of speeches I listened too over the years, or in my personal presence that could be called, “Anti-Semite.” No slurs. No derogatory remarks.

He is however, most certainly Anti-Israel, and Anti-Israeli in general. He wishes the Israeli state did not exist at all. He expressed this to me numerous times in our private conversations. His view is that Israel is more trouble than it is worth, specifically to the America taxpayer. He sides with the Palestinians, and supports their calls for the abolishment of the Jewish state, and the return of Israel, all of it, to the Arabs.

A Deadly Christmas for Nigerian Christians

Notice how the media portrays this as though there is equal culpubility on the part of Christians and muslims. This is not a "clash" or fighting "between" Christians and muslims, but rather is an islamic jihad to abolish the Christian population of Nigeria. The same situation which is occuring wherever islam takes control.

Clashes in Nigeria leaves more than 60 dead Telegraph
Fighting between a radical Muslim sect and Nigerian troops have left more than 60 people dead.

Several days of violence in the Nigeria's northeast has left churches bombed and people hiding in fear.

The country's authorities said at least 61 people have died in the violence.

The government has now ordered a dusk until dawn curfew in the Yobe state, where at least 50 people died, following attacks by the sect known as Boko Haram.

In Maiduguri, the capital of neighbouring Borno state, bombs reduced at least three churches to rubble and raised fears of further attacks by a group that claimed Christmas Eve bombings last year that killed dozens.

The fighting began Thursday in the two states, with gunfire and explosions heard into the night and the following day in an arid region that borders Cameroon, Chad and Niger.

Damaturu, the capital of Yobe state, and the town of Potiskum bore the brunt of the violence.

In Damaturu, residents fled their homes near the city's central mosque ahead of a combined attack by soldiers and the federal police's feared Mobile Police, known as "kill-and-go" for their propensity for violence.

The paramilitary forces raided the area in armoured personnel carriers and tanks, with heavy gunfire marking their arrival.

"We were able to kill 12 of the Boko Haram armed sect and bombers," said local police commissioner Lawan Tanko.

He added that officers also recovered Kalashnikov rifles, ammunition and explosives.

There were fears that the death toll could rise to more than 100.

Authorities have blamed Boko Haram for firebombing at least three churches around the capital, attacks that killed one pastor and his young child.

This is just the latest in a series of bombings over the last year by Boko Haram.

The group, whose name means "Western education is sacrilege" in the local Hausa language, wants to implement strict Shariah law across a nation of more than 160 million people that is home to both Christians and Muslims.

Boko Haram claimed responsibility for an attack in Damaturu, Yobe state's capital, that killed more than 100 people in November.

The group also claimed responsibility for a suicide car bombing of the UN headquarters in Nigeria's capital in August that killed 24 people and wounded 116 others.

While initially targeting enemies via hit-and-run assassinations from the back of motorbikes, violence by Boko Haram has developed a new sophistication and apparent planning that includes high-profile attacks with greater casualties.

The sect is responsible for at least 465 killings in Nigeria this year alone.

The Latest Haveil Havalim

This week's edition, #341 of the Jewish blog carnival Haveil Havalim is up at Esser Agaroth.

Joe Klein the Latest to Incite Against Jews

What a skunk joe klein is. When has America ever fought a war for Israel? The answer is never and I'm sick of that canard. Israel fights its own wars. However America has spent the last twenty years fighting multiple wars for muslims including bombing the Christian Serbs. None of this is ever brought up by the walt, mearsheimer, klein and friedman crowd. As for Iran, I have seen more than one poll which shows that Americans would favor taking military action against Iran to prevent it from obtaining nuclear weapons. Iran has killed OUR troops and Iran has sponsored terrorism against America and has hezbollah proxies operating in South America and is going to place ballistic missiles in Venezuela which can reach us. Why do these cretins insist that Iran is only an Israeli problem? And besides, we spend billions of dollars and have thousands of troops defending England, Germany, Japan and South Korea, but when do you hear complaints about that from this same crowd? We have actually fought wars for other countries which have nothing to do with protecting our own national security, (Libya, Kosovo, Somalia) to no objection from the walt, mearsheimer, klein and friedman crowd nor to cries of a sinister muslim lobby at work. But somehow the mere perception we would fight a war for Israel's security is treated as something sinister. Klein and Friedman define the modern day kapo.

Jews blaming Jews again
Elliot Abrams, Weekly Standard

If you were an anti-Semite dedicated to spreading your hatred of Jews, what charges exactly would you make in 21st century America?

You would avoid the blood libel—too medieval to write of sacrificing Christian children to make Passover matzo. That kind of stuff circulates in Arab lands or Pakistan, but won’t sell in suburban America. And the “Christ-killer” material is also dated, what with Vatican II, Evangelical support for Israel, and the like.

There are two charges you would make. First, the rich Jews control our government. Second, those Jews are trying to push America into war so your sons will have to fight for Israel.

In the last week that is exactly what we have seen. First came the Thomas Friedman column in the New York Times: “I sure hope that Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, understands that the standing ovation he got in Congress this year was not for his politics. That ovation was bought and paid for by the Israel lobby.” Perhaps it was jealousy from seeing Walt and Mearsheimer sell all those books with this line, but Friedman here tips right into the swamps.

And now we have Joe Klein, in Time magazine, in a section accurately entitled “Swampland”: “Iowa Republicans are not neoconservatives. Ron Paul has gained ground after a debate in which his refusal to join the Iran warhawks was front and center. Indeed, in my travels around the country, I don’t meet many neoconservatives outside of Washington and New York. It’s one thing to just adore Israel, as the evangelical Christians do; it’s another thing entirely to send American kids off to war, yet again, to fight for Israel’s national security.”
Related Stories

Now, Klein has chosen his medium well: Time has a history of anti-Semitism, illustrated by its famous 1977 story about Israel’s prime minister that began “Menachem Begin (rhymes with Fagin).” But Klein’s thoughts are about as ugly as ever appear outside of Pat Buchanan’s publications. “There are only two groups that are beating the drums for war in the Middle East-the Israeli Defense Ministry and its amen corner in the United States,” Buchanan said in 1990.

How different is that from what Klein just wrote? After all, Klein is saying (1) neoconservatives are Jews, and Jews are neoconservatives; (2) Evangelicals like Israel but they are real Americans who put their own country first, unlike Jews; (3) and what those Jews/neoconservatives really want is to send American boys off to fight Israel’s wars, sparing Israeli kids and of course their own kids, who are apparently not “American kids” and anyway do not fight for their country. Of course Klein simply ignores the possibility that concern about the Iranian nuclear program does not make one a warmongering neoconservative, and actually extends even to Christians. Yesterday Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta said, “The United States does not want Iran to develop a nuclear weapon. That’s a red line for us and that’s a red line, obviously, for the Israelis. If we have to do it we will deal with it….If they proceed and we get intelligence that they are proceeding with developing a nuclear weapon then we will take whatever steps necessary to stop it.” Bought and paid for? Sending American kids off to fight for Israel’s security?

These two recent statements are as vicious as it gets in the mainstream media, and here we have two Jews—Friedman and Klein—spreading the two major themes of contemporary American anti-Semitism. Why? Why now?

Why does it matter? Perhaps it is their hatred of Israel’s right of center government, or of modern Israel, or of the rise of Orthodoxy in Israel and in the American Jewish community. Let us not descend into such analyses when what matters is not abnormal psychology but the bounds of public discourse. Once upon a time, William F. Buckley banned Pat Buchanan from the pages of National Review and in essence drummed him out of the conservative movement for such accusations. Today, where are the Anti-Defamation League, and the American Jewish Committee, and all the Jewish “defense” organizations? Where are all the Jewish groups which have given Klein and Friedman awards, demanding them back? Where are Jewish Democrats in Congress, who have no doubt wined and dined both Klein and Friedman in a thousand dinner parties, and Congressional leaders from Nancy Pelosi to Harry Reid? And what about our other supposed moral leaders, religious, intellectual, or political?

It isn’t a small matter, because as we have learned the hard way with Walt and Mearsheimer, once the infection of anti-Semitism enters the mass media and the academy, it grows and grows. What begins as a “controversial statement” ends up on every reading list. Klein and Friedman, whatever their personal motivations for these statements, are helping popularize and make acceptable anti-Semitism in America. Their own publications will no doubt reward them for their advanced thinking. Will the rest of our society?

Midnight Masses Cancelled in Iraq

It won't be a merry Christmas for persecuted Christians in islamic countries.


Midnight Masses canceled in Iraq because of growing security concerns Catholic News Service

LONDON (CNS) -- Chaldean Catholic officials have canceled traditional Christmas Eve midnight Masses because of security risks.

Chaldean Archbishop Louis Sako of Kirkuk in northern Iraq told the agency Aid to the Church in Need that Christians will spend Christmas in "great fear" because of the risk of new attacks.

All services and Masses have been scheduled for daylight hours, he said in an interview with Rome-based AsiaNews.

"Midnight Christmas Mass has been canceled in Baghdad, Mosul and Kirkuk as a consequence of the never-ending assassinations of Christians," he said, citing the Oct. 31, 2010, attack on the Syrian Catholic cathedral that left 57 people dead in the Iraqi capital.

Archbishop Sako also expressed concern over the growing conflict between Sunni and Shiite Muslims vying for political power. He said the conflict has led to growing instability, especially in the days since the pullout of U.S. military troops in mid-December.

Jihad Against Western Civilization in Egypt

The islamic jihadists are trying to obliterate all evidence of Egypt's non-islamic past. Whenever islamic supremacists take over a country, what follows is the extermination of that civilization's pre-islamic cultures and religions. Meanwhile the Obama administration pretends that our fight is simply against the narrow target of al qaeda. The fact is that islam itself is waging jihad against us, the west and the entire non-islamic world until we submit to islam, even though our public officials deny that this is the case.

This is what the museums staging exhibits for faux contributions to science, etc. by the Muslim world should include.

Welcome to Cairostan: Op-ed: Egypt’s radicals eliminating country’s connection to West, but does anyone care? Guy Bechor YNet News December 22 (hat tip Philip)

It was barely mentioned in the Israeli and global media, but the following event pertains to the whole of Western civilization: Last Saturday, violent groups of Islamic-Salafi radicals burned the famous scientific institute established by Napoleon in Egypt after its first encounter with the West. Some historians consider it the start of modern times in the Middle East.

The site, L’Institut d’Egypte, held some 200,000 original and rare books, exhibits, maps, archeological findings and studies from Egypt and the entire Middle East, based on the work of generations of western researchers. Most of the artifacts were lost forever, burned or looted.

It’s difficult to understand the modern Middle East without these studies, which were overcome by an immense fire. The large building was situated in the center of Cairo and torching it was a symbolic, intentional act. Those who burned the building and its artifacts meant to burn the era of logic, enlightenment, research and individualism.

This was a grave provocation against the whole of Western civilization, a desire to disconnect from science, research and modernity, while cynically using a Western means – that is, democracy – in order to take power.

Ron Paul Can't Take the Heat

Ron Paul has been getting a free ride up until now. Finally he is being challenged regarding his racist and antisemitic newsletters, and he responds by storming off the set like a petulant toddler. How can he and his sychophants seriously claim that newsletters going out under his name with his signature, did not come from Paul himself? And if not, why has he never denounced them?


Ron Paul Walks Out On CNN Interview When Asked About His Newsletter Blaming Israel for 1993 WTC Attackopen original articleThu Dec 22, 2011 09:02 from Atlas Shrugs by Pamela Geller.

Iowa, get a grip. You cannot be serious. Ron Paul is leading the Iowa polls?
He is a bloody anti-Semite.

Weekly Standard recently noted Paul's "lucrative and decades-long promotion of bigotry and conspiracy theories, for which he has yet to account fully, and his continuing espousal of extremist views, that should make him unwelcome at any respectable forum, not only those hosted by Jewish organizations."

As you can see from this video, he is not willing to account for it even now.

These are the rantings of a Jew-hater. Period. The Jewish people have been the target of Islamic jihad since the creation of Islam. The modern state of Israel is in a state of constant readiness beause of the relentless jihad war aginst the tiny Jewish state. Jihad came to America in 1993; that Paul would advance a Jewish blood libel reveals who and what he is.

This is pathetic. Our public officials keep tiptoeing around the issue of islamic jihad. They refuse to state bluntly who our enemy is. And frankly Dan Lungren isn't much better than Stockton. Islam has not been radicalized, it is a radical ideology in and of itself. It is like saying radical communist. Stockton cannot even bring himself to acknowledge we are at war with what Lundgren carefully phrases as "violent islamist extremism". The word islamist being a western invention so as to avoid using the word islam. Even the questioning Congressman is very careful in making sure he isn't blaming islam itself.

Muslims Attack Hare Krishna Temple

We need to ask Ron Paul and his supporters what the Hare Krishnas did to provoke the muslims into attacking their temple. Surely they must have done something to anger them since we know that islam is a peaceful religion which has nothing in its doctrine calling for the subjugation of infidels. So it can't be the fault of the muslim attackers.

I'm very disturbed by the fact that it is being suggested that they change the way they are dressed outside the temple. Isn't Denmark supposed to be a free country? Why are civilized people compelled to alter their appearance and submit to islamic supremacism rather than punishing the hateful, intolerant brutes? This is giving in to barbarism and turning a once civilized nation into mob rule.


Muslims attack Hare Krishna temple in Denmark Europe News

Uriasposten December 15 2011

The Hare Krishna temple in Western Copenhagen was recently assaulted by a group of young Muslims, throwing stones and breaking windows. To diminish the risk of confrontations with the Muslim-dominated neighbourhood, the devotees of the temple are from now on requested to not wear their characteristic clothes outside the temple, in order to not provoke similar attacks in the future. Below is the original account of the attacks.

Hillary's Deplorable Attempt at Moral Equivalence

Contrast Hillary’s fake concern over the rights of women in Israel to her silence over a woman being executed on charges of sorcery in saudi arabia. Hillary’s comment was merely an underhanded way to attack the legitimacy of the Jewish state and attempt to create a moral equivalence between it and its enemies under the guise of concern for the status of women in Israel. Women in Israel have equal rights, professional careers, and hold positions of power in Israeli society in government, the military and business.

No, Israel Isn’t Turning Into Iran P. David Hornik, FRONT PAGE MAG

The big drama so far in Israel this week has involved Tanya Rosenblit, a 28-year-old writer and translator. Boarding a bus from the coastal town of Ashdod to Jerusalem, she stood her ground for about half an hour when ultra-Orthodox (haredi) Jewish men tried to pressure her to take a seat at the back. Rosenblit became an instant heroine, appearing on TV with the transportation minister and publishing an op-ed about her experience in one of Israel’s largest dailies.

In January 2011 Israel’s Supreme Court declared forced gender segregation on buses illegal. Politicians from both right and left condemned the attempt to coerce Rosenblit. Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said “a fringe group must not be allowed to dismantle what we share in common.” Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi Yona Metzger, himself ultra-Orthodox, said, “We don’t have the authority to force our ideas on others. This country does not belong to the haredi community.”

Gender segregation on Israeli buses has, of course, gotten attention from lofty places lately. Speaking to the Saban Center earlier this month, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said it and other Israeli phenomena reminded her of Iran. And last week in an already-notorious op-ed Thomas Friedman included segregated bus lines for the ultra-Orthodox community (to repeat, now outlawed) in a volley of jibes against Israel.

As the above story reveals—yes, there is a problem; and yes, it’s being addressed. It should also be seen in the right dimensions: only a small proportion of the public buses serve neighborhoods (mostly in Jerusalem) of the ultra-Orthodox, who account for 9 percent of the Jewish population. But, for some, catching a rumor somewhere (sex-segregated buses in Israel!) is enough to heap some more vilification on the much-criticized Jewish state.

And how did the problem come about? Does it really signal a deterioration of democracy, as Clinton complained? Or does it in fact reflect something quite different?

The ultra-Orthodox have always been a problematic community in Israel, ranging from hostile to ambivalent toward the secular state. But back in 1948 when Israel was established, they were a tiny community. Young haredi men were exempted from military service and even given state support for yeshiva studies. The secular-Jewish majority tended to see the haredim as an eccentric remnant of the Diaspora that, in any case, would soon wither on the vine.

Soros' Jihad Against Israel

This soros is one evil sociopath. Here is another expose about various soros front organizations who's purpose is to replace Israel with an islamic state.

The George Soros Plot to Destroy Israel by Sam Blumenfeld, The New American

If you’re wondering who’s funding the network of left-wing, non-government organizations in Israel, which aim to topple Netanyahu’s government and turn Israel into an Arab majority state, it turns out to be the same man who’s funding the Occupy Wall Street mobs: George Soros. Tel Aviv has had to contend with the same left-wing protests, tents and all, obviously all coordinated by one central global puppeteer.

That is why the Israeli Knesset passed the NGO Funding Transparency Bill by 40 to 34 in February. It was a hard-fought battle. But despite its neutered state, the bill survived and was enacted. It is a declaration of war by the conservative Likud Party against the shadow NGO empire being used by George Soros to shape the future of Israel. Its liberal opponents called it a “threat to democracy.”

Dan Greenfield writes in FrontPage Magazine, 9/22/2011:

While the bill was no longer able to empower the lifting of tax exempt status for foreign funded NGOs and it only addressed foreign funding of NGOs by government entities, it was a major step for foreign funding transparency. The Soros empire had been built on non-transparency, on hidden donor lists and front groups funded by think tanks with money pipelined in grants through a dozen different organizations.

NGO transparency threatened the entire Soros empire and the passage of even a neutered bill meant that Israel might finally be ready to begin rolling back the peel on the rotten fruits of the Open Society Institute. First governments, then foreign funders, parliamentary inquiries into foreign funding, and then the loss of tax exempt status for left-wing NGOs waging a civil war.

Soros’ global reach is what is contributing to world-wide economic and political disequilibrium. His attempt to overthrow the Netanyahu government is a particularly odious campaign. He has aroused intense hatred among many supporters of Israel. Dan Greenberg writes:

The campaign for Israeli NGO transparency threatens Soros’ long-term influence in Israel, and the defection of Jewish voters threatens his influence in America. His Israeli puppets have big money at stake. Soros, the Shadow Party billionaires and the EU have spent fortunes to buy up the left. Israeli left-wing university grads with no talent for tech have a lucrative alternative to dot coms in the NGO, and if their NGO mafia were to collapse, it would give the leaders of the housing protests some real economic problems to cry about.
In the United States, the radical leftist Shadow Party, which controls the Democratic Party, is funded by the same network of NGOs that was very well exposed by Glenn Beck on a big blackboard on his television show.

Religious Double Standard

Like I was saying yesterday, liberals oppose religion in the public square unless its islam. High school football players from Long Island were suspended for kneeling in prayer in school. Meanwhile a mostly muslim public high school football team in Michigan prays before games and in the classroom and schedules their practices around ramadan. Not only don't liberals raise the issue of separation of religion and state, the liberal media gushes over this football team and their devotion to their religious faith. But devout Christians are demonized by the same liberal elite.


Public School Football: NY Athletes Suspended for "Tebowing" in school while Michigan Football Players Lauded for Pre-Game Muslim Prayers

Riverhead High School administrators in Garden City, New York suspended 17-year-old twins Connor and Tyler Carroll this week after the two athletes “kneeled-down” in tribute to NFL sensation Tim Tebow. Suspended. But we are forced to watch and celebrate a public school football team engaging in Muslim prayer and scheduling practice after midnight to accommodate Ramadan. Worse, Islamic supremacists and their left-wing idiots demand that advertisers like Lowe's underwrite it.

Liberal hypocrisy on religion

Just a thought. The same liberals who insist we accommodate every demand made by
muslims otherwise we are bigoted, such as the practice of blocking city streets for Friday prayers, building mega-mosques in residential neighborhoods, foot baths in colleges, prayer breaks in the workplace, halal only meals in schools and workplaces, etc. cannot tolerate an Evangelical Christian football player knealing down in prayer on the field.

Harassing Law-Abiding, Patriotic Americans

So jihadists are invited to be guests at the White House while patriotic Americans standing in defense of our constituional rights are harassed and seen as a threat. Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition got detained by State Department security personnel for covering the secret meeting between Hillary Clinton and the islamic supremacist OIC who are demanding the U.S. government suppress the free speech rights of Americans. Conducting such a meeting is treasonous.

Atlas shrugs:

Emulating their Sharia Partner, the OIC, State Department Detains Andrea Lafferty as “Threat," “The very restriction on free speech the UN Resolution was pushing is exactly what they used against me"from Atlas Shrugs by Pamela GellerThe Obama administration is harassing and detaining law-abiding patriots.

SIOA and the Traditional Values Coalition have been carefully monitoring the anti-constitutional collusion of Obama's State department and the global Islamic supremacist org, the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation). Today, SIOA partner and TVC president, Andrea Lafferty, was detained by the State department as a "threat" merely for covering the secret event.

This is Omerica.

On Monday, I wrote in the American Thinker, the respect and deference that the United States is paying to the OIC amounts to surrender in installments. The call for "respect and empathy and tolerance," coming from the most brutal and oppressive ideology on the face of the earth, reminds me of the "peace and equality" that was promised in Hitler's campaign posters for the Nationalist Socialist Workers (Nazi) party.

Religion of Peace at Work

Would it be culturally insensitive and islamophobic to speak of the abject evil of the following heinous atrocities? Or do we in the west continue avoiding reality and pretend that islam is peaceful and poses no threat contrary to all that is taking place by so many adherents of the religion of peace from the Middle East to Africa to the Indian subcontinent and Europe.

Bangladesh man ‘admits’ cutting off wife’s fingers BBC

Human rights groups in Bangladesh have demanded a severe punishment for the husband of a young wife who allegedly cut off most of her right hand.

Police say Rafiqul Islam, 30, attacked her because she pursued higher education without his permission.

They say Mr Islam, a migrant worker, admitted to the crime shortly after returning home from the Gulf.

However there has been no independent confirmation from the suspect that he carried out the attack.

The incident is one of a number of acts of domestic violence targeting educated women in recent months.

Police say that Mr Islam, who works in the United Arab Emirates, tied up his 21-year-old wife, Hawa Akther Jui, earlier this month. He then taped her mouth and cut off the five fingers.

‘Severe consequences’
Doctors say the fingers cannot be re-attached and it appears that Ms Akther will have to live with permanent disfigurement.

Rafiqul Islam is reported to have confessed to the crime
“After he came back to Bangladesh, he wanted to have a discussion with me. Suddenly, he blindfolded me and tied my hand,” Ms Akther told the BBC’s Anbarasan Ethirajan from the town of Narsingdi.

“He also taped my mouth saying that he would give me some surprise gifts. But, instead he cut off my fingers.”

She said her husband, who is not well educated, did not approve of her enrolling in a college for higher studies.

During their earlier telephone conversations, she said, he warned her of “severe consequences” if she went against his word.

“Doctors said my fingers could be re-attached within six hours but he refused to give them. After that time, another relative of my husband threw the fingers in a dustbin.

“We finally recovered them but it was too late,” said Ms Akther, who is still recovering at her parent’s house.

She said that she did not want to live with her husband – who is now in police custody – any more.

The police officer investigating the case, ARM Al-Mamun, said “preliminary investigations” had led police to believe that it was a “pre-planned attack”.

“He [the husband] admitted to cutting off his wife’s fingers. We will be pressing charges against him,” Mr Al-Mamum said.

A family member of Mr Islam said that the couple had “differences” on some issues, including her decision to pursue higher studies.

Ms Akther – who is eager to continue her studies – said that she wanted her husband to be severely punished for the attack.

“I have now started practising writing with my left hand. I want to see how far I can go. I never imagined that my fingers would be chopped off like this because of my studies.”

The attack follows an incident in June in which a university lecturer lost one eye while the other was badly wounded in an attack allegedly carried out by her husband.

The accused man in this case, Syeed Hasan Sumon, died in custody earlier this month while awaiting trial.

Indian Express:
Taliban cut nursing woman’s breast, asked others to eat pieces: UN-backed report Indian Express

Islamabad : Pakistani Taliban fighters cut the breasts of a woman who was breastfeeding her child and asked other women to eat the pieces, in a gory incident highlighted in a report on the abuse of women in the militancy-hit tribal belt bordering Afghanistan.

The incident occurred when five militants walked into a house and saw the woman breastfeeding her child, The Express Tribune quoted the report titled ‘Impact of crisis on women and girls in FATA’ as saying.

The report, released by the human rights organisation “Khwendo Kor” (Sisters’ Home in Pashto) with financial support from the UN, is based on case studies of women from the tribal belt living in camps set up in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa for people displaced by militancy.

Women in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas are more susceptible to abuse in a post-conflict scenario, whether or not they are part of the conflict, the report says.

Another revelation is that women in camps were forced to have sex in exchange for food and non-food items. Girls and widows were at greater risk of such abuse.

“A security officer forced me to have sex in exchange for cooking oil and pulses when I was collecting food at the main entrance of the camp,” a 22-year-old woman in Jalozai camp is quoted as saying.

The surveys conducted at relief camps at Nahqai and Jalozai showed that women were uncomfortable going to toilets because men constantly lurked around.

The report said there was also an increase in “honour killings” in which women who were raped were murdered because rape was considered a disgrace to the family.

Forced marriages, honour killings, exchange of women between tribes and marriages with first cousins resulting in disabilities among offspring have made women very dependent, the report said.

Family of Murdered Egyptian Christians On the Run Due to Muslim Terror Mary Abdelmassih

(AINA) -- Two weeks after the murder of two Christian brothers by Muslims during the violence that swept the upper Egyptian village of elGhorayzat, the family of the murdered Christians has temporarily come out of hiding to speak of the terror they have been subjected to and decry the impunity enjoyed by the killers, who are walking freely in the village.

On November 28, the two Christian brothers, Kamel Tamer Abraham (55) and Camille Tamer Abraham (50), were killed in revenge for the death of the Muslim Mohamad Abdel-Nazeer, who was injured during an altercation with a village Christian over the building of a fence round the Christian's house, and who later died in hospital. The Christian man fled from the village with his family.

The NY Slimes Hates Israel

While cheering on the jihadist-led “Arab spring” and applauding the election outcomes which have brought the muslim brotherhood to power in Egypt, Tunisia, Bahrain and Morocco, the NY Slimes increases its vitriol against Israel. The NY Slimes champions the forces of evil while denigrating the forces of good. And it is guilty of fueling global antisemitism in the process. Thomas Friedman’s inciteful comment about Congress cheering Bibi only because they are ‘bought and paid for by the Israel lobby’ is a prime example of the Slimes deliberately trying to ratchet up the global political war against Israel and whip up the leftist and islamic mob into a frenzy. Supporting Israel is morally right and most governments of the world in fact are the ones guilty of bowing to pressure from the powerful bloc of Arab and islamic states into ganging up on the tiny Jewish state.

The New York Times Hates Israel
by Isi Leibler
December 16, 2011

The brouhaha over the recent New York Times column by Tom Friedman highlights the newspaper’s increasing hostility against Israel. Today, it would not be an exaggeration to state that the editorial policy of the NYT towards the Jewish state is virtually indistinguishable from the blatant anti-Israeli hostility promoted by the UK based Guardian or the BBC.
Fortunately, the broader American public opinion has never been more supportive of the Jewish State than today. The only exceptions are the liberals, some of whom have become increasingly disenchanted with Israel and now tend to identify with their European counterparts and their excessive bias against Israel. This manifests itself on American campuses and to some extent in far-left sectors of the Democratic Party. It represents the source of the tensions which have evolved between Israel and the United States following the election of the Obama administration.

One of the principal long-term contributing factors to the erosion of liberal support can be attributed to increasing vitriolic hostility against Israel displayed in the pages of the New York Times. This trend climaxed with the election of Binyamin Netanyahu who has been subjected to a constant and unprecedented barrage of fierce personal and political condemnations from its editorials and leading columnists.

Despite Jewish ownership, throughout its history, the New York Times has rarely displayed affection or sensitivity towards Jewish issues. As far back as 1929, during the Arab riots in Palestine, the local Times correspondent, Joseph Levy, boasted that he was a committed anti-Zionist.

There is ample evidence that during the Holocaust, news of the slaughter of the Jews was relegated to the back pages allegedly out of cowardly concern that undue clamor about the plight of the Jews might reinforce the anti-Semitic claim that the war against the Nazis was a Jewish war.

Jordan is the Palestinian Arab State

This is the ideal solution and the only viable solution. This proposal should not be opposed by anyone who claims to care about the plight of the Arabs referred to as “palestinians”. Anyone who opposes it exposes that their true agenda is the destruction of Israel.

The UN partition plan of 1947 was to create an Arab state and a Jewish state out of the remainder of Palestine. While the Jews accepted this proposal, the Arabs rejected it and instead launched a war of annihilation against newly born Israel. The arabs of Palestine didn't want a state if it meant also having to accept a Jewish state, and nothing has changed in their attitude since. In any case an Arab state was already established in Palestine, TransJordan, as a gift from Britain to the Hashemite Kingdom. So in fact the British actually betrayed the Jews by giving away most of what was to be reserved for a Jewish state to the Hashemites. The country of Jordan represents 80% of manditory Palestine.

How is it fair or just to create a 22nd Arab state, a second one in Palestine by taking territory from the lone, tiny Jewish state?


Jordan Is Palestinian

A politically connected friend of mine approached me today to solicit my support in helping the author to organize a political party among the Palestinians in Jordan with a view to taking over when the opportunity arises. At this moment they are trying to raise the money that would allow them to get politically organized as a Democratic Party. Their intention is to be friends with Israel for their own defense and economic well being. They would be willing to take in all Palestinian refugees and even from Judea and Samaria. I suggested that they seek out American money already in the Budget to support democratic movements around the world. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Ted Belman

by Mudar Zahran, Middle East QuarterlyWinter 2012, pp. 3-12 (view PDF)

Thus far the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan has weathered the storm that has swept across the Middle East since the beginning of the year. But the relative calm in Amman is an illusion. The unspoken truth is that the Palestinians, the country’s largest ethnic group, have developed a profound hatred of the regime and view the Hashemites as occupiers of eastern Palestine—intruders rather than legitimate rulers. This, in turn, makes a regime change in Jordan more likely than ever. Such a change, however, would not only be confined to the toppling of yet another Arab despot but would also open the door to the only viable peace solution—and one that has effectively existed for quite some time: a Palestinian state in Jordan.

Mark Levin Decimates Ron Paul

Ron Paul isn’t just wrong, he is a bad guy, an antisemite and anti-American. I’m tired of his nutty, cult-like followers who proclaim him to be the only real conservative or patriot. Making excuses and justifications for those who attack America is not conservative or patriotic in any way, shape or form. It is beyond the pale as is saying Bush was gleeful over 9/11 because it gave him an excuse to invade Iraq. Ron Paul is no different than Code Pink or ANSWER or any other far left, America-hating groups. Even on fiscal matters, which he has been praised by other conservatives who otherwise oppose his foreign policy views, he turns out to be a fraud. He has earmarked millions for his own district.

Grenade Attack by muslim in Belgian Shopping Center

A muslim hurls grenades into a crowd of Christmas shoppers in Belgium and still the Belgian government and media refuse to name the motive for the attack. In fact officials go out of their way to deny this was an islamic terrorist attack simply because the perpetrator acted alone. How many of these atrocities have to be carried out before western politicians will call it what it is, islamic jihad? This was a major act of terrorism yet I haven't even seen any coverage of it in our own media at all.

Muslim Gunman in Belgium kills 5 and injures 122 Ali Sina, Faith Freedom International

December 13, 2011 — LIEGE, Belgium — Summoned for questioning by Belgian police, Nordine Amrani, a Muslim man with a history of weapons and drug offenses left home armed with hand grenades, a revolver and an assault rifle. Stopping at a central square filled with holiday shoppers, he lobbed three grenades into the crowd, then opened fire.

Five people were killed, including an 18-month-old toddler, and 122 were wounded in the assault Tuesday that brought tragedy to the pre-Christmas season of students reveling in exam results and preschoolers enchanted by brightly lit trees and holiday stalls.

Herman Van Rompuy, a former Belgian prime minister who is now president of the European Council, said he was badly shaken by the attack. “There is no explanation whatsoever,” Van Rompuy said. “It leaves me perplexed and shocked.”

Of course there is an explanation. Amrani was a Muslim and he was waging his personal Jihad against the infidels. After over 18,000 terrorist attacks by the followers of the religion of peace sincer 9/11, the only thing that is inexplicable and indeed shocking is the surprise of the politicians to connect the dots and that these terrorists are Muslims and they are practicing the many teachings of their prophet.

Two days earlier, another Muslim, calmly pointed his handgun and opened fire on passing cars near Vine Street and Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood while shouting Allahu Akbar. He injured one passerby before being killed by the police. In both cases the media refused to identify the killer as Muslim terrorist.

The Fakestinian Myth Finally Exposed

I was watching FOX's annoying Greta Van Susteran last night. She referred to Newt's comment about the "palestinians" being an invention as "inflammatory". You know what's really inflamatory Greta? The very invention of a "palestinian" people which has been used to incite hatred against Jews and Israel around the world, to delegitimize and demonize the Jewish state by falsely accusing it of "colonialism" and "occupying" lands that have been Jewish for thousands of years. And this "palestinian" myth has caused the deaths of thousands of Israelis in a decades long terror war. She then had on John Bolton and asked him if Newt was "pandering" for the Jewish vote. Newt isn't the one pandering Greta, he is simply stating historical fact. But the world has been pandering to the Arabs for decades to maintain the steady flow of oil by perpetuating a false "palestinian" narrative at the expense of Israel. You Greta, are pandering just by suggesting we should avoid truth-telling because it upsets the people referred to as "palestinians". So the bottom line is that telling the truth about the "palestinians" is a no-no and amounts to pandering to Jews, but its acceptable and even required to lie to placate Arab-muslim sensibilities. Am I the only one tired of the west tiptoeing around the sensibilities of the muslim world? Newt really has the elites in the media, pundit class and government rattled over this statement and I'm glad. They fear exposure to the American people that they have been pressuring Israel to surrender territory on the basis of a myth.

Slain Girl Being Called a Catholic Martyr in Pakistan Zenit

(Reportedly Refused to Convert to Islam

KHUSHPUR, Pakistan, DEC. 6, 2011 ( A young Pakistani woman, 18-year-old Mariah Manisha, (also reported as Amariah Masih) is being hailed as a martyr. A Catholic, she was kidnapped by a Muslim man.

The young woman from the village of Tehsil Samundari in Punjab province, was shot dead by 28-year-old Arif Gujjar, a Muslim.

Some reports say she was shot when she resisted an attempt to rape her; others say she was killed when she refused to convert to Islam so that the man could marry her.

Father Zafal Iqbal, a Catholic priest from Khushpur, where the young woman's family live, told the news agency Fides that "the girl resisted, she did not want to convert to Islam and she did not marry the man, who killed her for this. She is a martyr."

Father Khalid Rashid Asi, general vicar of the diocese of Faisalabad said: "It is very sad, Christians, often girls, are helpless victims."

Israel's Defense Industry an Asset to America

I'm tired of hearing from certain quarters that Israel is a burden upon America. Here is how Israel is a vital asset. I don't expect Walt and Meirsheimer fellow travelers to acknowledge any of this.


How Israel's Defense Industry Can Help Save America Arthur Herman — December 2011 PrintPDFKibbutz Sasa sits one mile from Israel’s Lebanese border. Founded in 1949, it is the site of the tomb of the second-century rabbi Levi ben Sisi. It hosts groves of fruit trees and a dairy farm and has 210 members. Kibbutz Sasa is also the home of the main factory of Plasan, a company that started out making hard plastic containers like garbage cans in 1985. For four years now, American soldiers have driven more safely in Iraq and Afghanistan, thanks to Kibbutz Sasa and Plasan’s CEO, Dani Ziv.

It was Ziv who, in the 1980s, urged the company to take up the manufacture of protective ballistic vests for soldiers and police. In 1989, Plasan won its first contract to make body armor for the Israel Defense Forces, and then for IDF vehicles. When war came to Afghanistan and then Iraq, orders went through the roof, especially from the United States. Plasan’s profits soared some 1,500 percent, from $23 million in 2003 to $330 million in 2007. Today they stand at over $500 million, with 90 percent of the company’s orders coming from Europe and the United States.

Plasan specializes in a very dense plastic composite product that affords ballistic protection without significantly adding to the weight of the vehicle. “Their work is exceptional,” says a senior Israeli defense industry executive about Plasan. “To convince the U.S. military that you are a reliable outfit is no mean feat. They did it all alone, without any help from a former ambassador or defense ministry director general.”

Plasan-armored mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicles (MRAPs) have been serving in Afghanistan since August 2009, and contractor Oshkosh Company has another 8,800 on order. In 2009 Plasan even opened a factory in Bennington, Vermont, to do the work for its American contract. But while the 350 or so workers there are American, the technology is decidedly Israeli.

That applies to an even smaller company in Netanya, Israel, called Camero. Its engineers have come up with a way to use ultra-wideband wireless transmissions to see through walls—literally—and detect armed men and explosives on the other side. The Xaver 400 is barely the size of a laptop computer, but it’s dramatically shifting the odds in urban fighting in favor of the technology user, whether he’s an IDF soldier or a United States Marine​. Indeed, in December 2010, one of Camero’s top clients became the Department of Defense.

Newt Tells the Truth About Fakestinians

It's about time a major political figure finally broke this taboo about the fakestinians and their fraudulent claim to statehood. On what basis does the world have to steal land from the Jewish state to create a 22 Arab state and second one in what was once the territory of Palestine? The existing Arab state being Jordan. I hate it that Newt's spokesman tried to soften up his remarks. What we need is more blunt truths being stated, not politically correct lies being spoken to placate muslim sensitivities. One needs to simply ask why only since 1967 has there been a movement to create a "palestinian" state? Why was there no such effort when Jordan occupied Judea and Samaria and eastern Jerusalem? How come these Arabs have only referred to themselves as "palestinians" since 1967? I saw a panel discussion this morning on FOX with Chris Wallace where Newt was mildly rebuked for this statement. Note that none of the panelists disputed him on the facts. Its just that saying the "palestinians" are an invented people is "needlessly provocative". So we must perpetuate a lie in order not to anger the muslim world, specifically the fakestinians.

Gingrich Describes Palestinian People as ‘Invented’ FOX NEWS

Newt Gingrich declared in an interview that Palestinians are an “invented” people, though his campaign afterward claimed the candidate still supports the establishment of a Palestinian state.

The front-running Republican presidential candidate made the comments in an interview with The Jewish Channel. The interview marks some of the toughest language to date any candidate has used to describe the Middle East peace process. It also comes after Gingrich pledged at a forum earlier in the week that if elected, he would name John Bolton — a hawkish, pro-Israel former U.N. ambassador who served in the George W. Bush administration — as his secretary of state.

In the interview with The Jewish Channel, Gingrich likened himself to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, whom he praised for his “tough-minded realism” about Israel’s security.

He said the Jewish people have the right to a state, but stopped short of declaring the same for the Palestinians.

“Remember there was no Palestine as a state. It was part of the Ottoman Empire. And I think that we’ve had an invented Palestinian people, who are in fact Arabs, and were historically part of the Arab community,” Gingrich said. “And they had a chance to go many places. And for a variety of political reasons we have sustained this war against Israel now since the 1940′s, and I think it’s tragic.”

Gingrich spokesman R.C. Hammond said afterward that the candidate was merely referring to the “decades-long history that has surrounded this issue,” and has long supported the concept of Palestinian statehood.

“Gingrich supports a negotiated peace agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, which will necessarily include agreement between Israel and the Palestinians over the borders of a Palestinian state,” Hammond said in a statement. “However, to understand what is being proposed and negotiated you have to understand decades of complex history — which is exactly what Gingrich was referencing during the recent interview with Jewish TV. ”

During the interview, Gingrich also said it’s “delusional to call it a peace process,” claiming that the Fatah-run Palestinian Authority and Hamas alike “represent an enormous desire to destroy Israel.”

The Palestinian Authority generally is viewed in the West as a far more moderate influence in the region than Hamas. While the U.S. considers Hamas a terror group, it has tried to bring Palestinian Authority officials to the table with Israel.

Obama administration officials, notably Defense Secretary Leon Panetta, recently have put added pressure on the Israelis to help restart peace talks. President Obama, like his Republican predecessor, has pushed for a two-state solution — though the Obama administration has fought efforts at the United Nations to recognize a Palestinian state absent an agreement between the Israelis and Palestinians themselves.

Gingrich’s comments come as the Republican presidential candidates compete to exhibit their pro-Israel credentials. While Gingrich’s campaign later affirmed support for a Palestinian state, his comments on the Palestinian people drew fierce condemnation from abroad.

The Palestinian prime minister, Salam Fayyad, demanded Gingrich “review history.”

“From the beginning, our people have been determined to stay on their land,” Fayyad said in comments carried by the Palestinian news agency Wafa. “This, certainly, is denying historical truths.”

Palestinians never had their own state — they were ruled by the Ottoman Empire for hundreds of years, like most of the Arab world. When the Ottoman Empire collapsed in the aftermath of World War I, the British, then a global colonial power, took control of the area, then known as British Mandate Palestine.

During that time, Jews, Muslims and Christians living on the land were identified as “Palestinian.”

But modern-day Palestinians bristle at the implication that they were generic Arabs. Palestinians are culturally Arabs — they speak Arabic and their culture is broadly shared by other Arabs who live in the eastern Mediterranean. But they, for the most part, identify themselves as Palestinians, just as the Lebanese, Jordanians and Syrians also identify themselves with a specific national identity.

Fast and Furious

The fast and furious scandal is a perfect example of how extremely dangerous this administration is. They will stop at nothing to push forward an ideological agenda. The ends justify the means. This is the Alinksy rules at work. Create as much chaos as possible to justify the implementation of massive government control over society and eventually institute totalitarian, marxist rule. It cost this trooper his life
and who knows how many others.

Congressman Blames Tea Party, NRA for Fast and Furious ControversyFiled under 2nd Amendment, Ethics, Government, Liberal Hypocrisy, Politics, Tea PartyComments (341)

Georgia Democratic Rep. Hank Johnson accused the tea party movement and the National Rifle Association of creating an “manufactured” controversy over Operation Fast and Furious Thursday.

Johnson’s comments came during an interview with The Daily Caller outside the House Judiciary Committee hearing room. Attorney General Eric Holder was testifying before the committee about Fast and Furious — a Justice Department program where Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives agents facilitated the sale of about 2,000 guns to Mexican drug cartels.

“I think this is another manufactured controversy by the second amendment, NRA Republican tea party movement,” Johnson said.

Johnson sung a different tune during the hearing, though, comparing the scandal to what he considers a surge in illegal gun sales to criminals.

After asking Holder for the specific number of guns the Justice Department and ATF helped smuggle into the hands of drug cartels — to which Holder responded there were about 2,000 — Johnson alleged that the “gun show loophole” was far worse

Fort Hood Jihad is "Workplace Violence"

According to the Obama White House, the Fort Hood massacre was simply 'workplace violence' not an act of islamic jihad. Never mind that he shouted "allahu akbar", never mind that he gave away korans on the morning of the shooting, had written on his business card "soa", meaning soldier of allah, and had lectured to a group of psychiatrists at a conference that killing American soldiers was the duty of muslims. All of the references to his religious motivation are swept under the rug and labeled as just "workplace violence". These are the pathetic people that we have entrusted with safeguarding America.

Lawmakers Blast Administration For Calling Fort Hood Massacre 'Workplace Violence'
Published December 07, 2011 |


Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation's Armed Forces at home.

During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.

"The documents attached illustrate how the Department is dealing with the threat of violent Islamist extremism in the context of a broader threat of workplace violence," read the letter, which was obtained by Fox News.

European Antisemitism Continues Unabated

The time is long past for Jews to get out of Europe and head to Israel. This latest batch of news confirms a grim atmosphere for European Jews. And as the muslim population increases along with its political power, the future for Europe's Jews is even grimmer. And native Europeans, angry and frustrated over losing their nations to islamization, are taking it out on Jews since they are terrified of standing up to islamic supremacists. The climate is becoming much like it was in the 1930's.

Free Speech Endangered as Administration Bows to OIC

Any federal official who is complicit with the OIC in attempting to tamper with the constitutionally protected free speech rights of Americans should be forced out of office and tried for treason.

If we had real leaders, they would be telling the OIC what they can do with their demands.

Criticism of Islam Could Soon be a Crime in America

When President Obama delivered his much-anticipated speech to the Muslim world at Cairo University in June 2009, the free world trembled while the OIC (Organization of Islamic Cooperation) gushed with praise and begged for a meeting with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

The OIC is the largest head of state organization in the world after the United Nations (UN) itself and comprises 56 Muslim countries plus the Palestinians. It claims to be the “collective voice of the Muslim world,” i.e., the ummah, and speaks on its behalf in effect as the seat of the next Islamic Caliphate. In 1990, the OIC membership adopted the “Cairo Declaration ,” which officially exempted all Muslim countries from compliance with the UN Universal Declaration on Human Rights and replaced it with Islamic law (shariah).

One of the fundamental laws of Islam deals with “slander ,” which is defined in shariah as saying “anything concerning a person [a Muslim] that he would dislike.” At the OIC’s Third Extraordinary Session, held in Mecca, Saudi Arabia in December 2005, the organization adopted a “Ten-Year Programme of Action to Meet the Challenges Facing the Muslim Ummah in the 21st Century.” A key agenda item of that meeting was “the need to counter Islamophobia” by seeking to have the UN “…adopt an international resolution to counter Islamophobia, and call upon all States to enact laws to counter it, including deterrent punishments.” The word “Islamophobia” is a completely invented word, coined by the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT), a Muslim Brotherhood (Ikhwan) front group. OIC adoption of the term reflects the close operational relationship between the OIC and the Ikhwan.

Six years later, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is due to host OIC Secretary General Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu in Washington, DC in mid-December 2011 to discuss how the United States can implement the OIC agenda to criminalize criticism of Islam. Cloaked in the sanctimonious language of “Resolution 16/18,” that was adopted by the UN Human Rights Council in April 2011, the WDC three-day experts meeting is billed as a working session to discuss legal mechanisms to combat religious discrimination (but the only religion the Human Rights Council has ever mentioned in any previous resolution is Islam). The UN Human Rights Council, which includes such bastions of human rights as China, Cuba, Libya, Pakistan, and Saudi Arabia, introduced Resolution 16/18 to the UN General Assembly (UNGA), where it was passed in March 2011.

Welcome to the Islamic Republic of Britain

Britain is rapidly turning into an islamic state. I can only generate contempt for a nation which has so easily rolled over for islamic supremacists, lacking any courage or pride to defend their values, culture and civilization.

Britain: Islam In, Christianity Out by Soeren Kern, HUDSON NY

A Christian worker in Britain has filed a lawsuit after losing her job when she exposed a campaign of systematic harassment by fundamentalist Muslims.

In a landmark legal case, Nohad Halawi, a former employee at London’s Heathrow Airport, is suing her former employer for unfair dismissal, claiming that Christian staff members, including her, were discriminated against because of their religious beliefs.

Halawi’s case is being supported by the Christian Legal Centre (CLC), an organization that provides legal support for Christians in the United Kingdom. CLC says the case raises important legal issues, and also questions over whether Muslims and Christians are treated differently by employers.

Halawi, who immigrated to Britain from Lebanon in 1977, told the London Telegraph “that she was told that she would go to Hell for her religion, that Jews were responsible for the September 11th terror attacks, and that a friend was reduced to tears having been bullied for wearing a cross.”

Halawi worked at the airport for 13 years as a saleswoman at World Duty Free, where she sold perfumes. Halawi was dismissed in July, following complaints by five Muslims that she was being “anti-Islamic.”

Halawi says her problems with the Muslims began after she defended a Christian friend who worked with her at the same store, and who was being harassed by the Muslims for wearing a necklace with a cross.

Matters got worse after Halawi described a Muslim staff member as an “allawhi,” or “man of God” in Arabic. Another worker, however, who overheard the remark, thought she said “Alawi,” his branch of Islam. The misunderstanding led to a heated argument, after which Hawali was suspended and then fired.

Halawi says she persistently complained to management that she was being subjected to personal religious abuse and harassment from Muslim staff, some of whom went so far as to mock her about “shitty Jesus,” according to the CLC. She says a group of “extremist” Muslims were the perpetrators, and that other employees are now worried that their jobs could be at risk if the Muslim group turns on them.

“One man brought in the Koran to work and insisted I read it and another brought in Islamic leaflets and handed them out to other employees,” Halawi told the London Telegraph. “They said that 9/11 served the Americans right and that they hated the West, but that they had come here because they want to convert people to Islam…This is supposed to be a Christian country, but the law seems to be on the side of the Muslims,” Halawi said.

Andrea Minichiello Williams, director of the CLC, said in a statement that Halawi’s case is the most serious she has pursued, and that “it raises huge issues.”

“First there is the level of Islamic fundamentalism prevalent at our main point of entry to the UK. Secondly, there are very real issues of religious discrimination, which it would appear those in authority are turning a blind eye to, using the current loopholes in employment law as an excuse,” Williams said.

The Halawi case comes amid concerns that Christianity is being marginalized in Britain at the same time that Islam is spreading rapidly and Muslims are becoming more assertive.

British MP David Simpson, for example, has warned that Christianity is seen to be fair game for criticism and abuse while Islam receives special protection in the United Kingdom.

During a debate in the House of Commons in May 2011 about the treatment of Christians around the world, Simpson said: “In the United Kingdom, the policy seems to be that people can do whatever they like against Christianity – criticize it or blaspheme the name of Christ – as long as they do not insult Islam.”

In London, the Harrow Council has provoked a storm of protest after announcing plans to offer Islamic halal-only menus in the borough’s 52 state primary schools. Parents are outraged that meat prepared according to Islamic Sharia law is being pushed on non-Muslim children. Meanwhile, most of the in-flight meals on British Airways could soon be halal. The airline also says Muslim staff may wear veils, but Christian employees may not wear crosses.

Spoiled, Coddled Occupy Brats

The best takedown I have read yet of the spoiled, self-entitled Occupy Wall Street brats. Why are credit card companies being demonized? Should people not be obligated to pay their credit card bills? Is it the fault of the credit card companies that people irresponsibly ran up thousands of dollars worth of bills? Why are banks being demonized? Should people not be obligated to pay their mortgages? Should they be given a house for free? Most people are suffering from financial problems because of the poor choices they themselves made.


The Problem With The Occupy Wall Street Generation12/6/2011 | Email John Hawkins | Columnist's Archive Sign-Up Playing baseball games without keeping score. Parents not allowed to cheer for one side or the other at basketball games. Refusing to use red ink to grade tests because it's too jarring. No dodgeball. Participation trophies. Telling kids, "You're special," without their doing anything to show they're special.

Newsflash: You may be special to God, your mommy, and your teacher just because you were born, but the rest of us aren't impressed.

The world doesn't owe you a living, a promotion, or any special consideration at all. The people who tell you otherwise are doing it because they think you're stupid, easy to manipulate, and they want to use you for their own purposes.

Oh, but what about the lucky ones, you say? The lazy, good-for-nothing punk kids who just happened to be born in the right family and live a life of luxury as a result?

What about them? There's always a little bit of randomness in life. The woman who does everything right and gets hit by a bus before she ever gets her payoff or the guy who does everything wrong and seems to get every break. So what? Is the idea supposed to be that you should have everything you want in life handed to you on a silver platter even though you're lazy and good-for-nothing because the Kennedy family exists?

Wait, wait, I forgot; you're not lazy and good-for-nothing. Your teacher told you that you are special and so did your mommy.

I hate to break this to you, but they may have told you a lie. Think back; what did you actually do that was so special? Were you an all-state quarterback? Did you carry your team to victory on your shoulders in a HI IQ Bowl competition? Did you set a state record for selling chocolate bars to support the school band? Those are the sort of achievements that should build self-esteem. That's because the right way to build self-esteem is by finding something you want to do, becoming better at it than most other people, realizing it, and then feeling a sense of specialness as a result of your accomplishments.

Instead, what we call "building self-esteem" has become nothing more than giving children a false sense of confidence. Oh, little Johnnie, you were born in America! That means the world is your oyster! Oh, you graduated from high school; that's great! Then you graduated from college? With a degree in Art History? Wow, that's really amazing! Just stand there long enough and your reward is sure to fall from the sky, wrapped in a bow, right into your waiting hands!
