The Invented "Palestinians" Worship Baby Killers

Conducting a dialogue with and surrendering territory to a barbaric society that worships savages who butcher families and slit the throats of children and infants, should not even be a remote consideration. Yet the world expects and demands Israel do just that. No state should ever be given to an invented people who lionize baby killers.

‘Palestine’ adores vicious murderers



The murdered Fogel family: Ruth, Udi, Yoav (11), Elad (4), Hadas (4 mo.).
The absolute vileness of the “Palestinian movement” is hard for those of us who grew up in civilized societies like the US and Israel to comprehend. As a result, many of us may be prepared to listen when they say that it is about human rights or justice.
But every once in awhile we get a window into what’s really behind it.
Even Israeli police and security personnel, who have seen some terrible things, were shocked last year by the sadistic murder of five members of the Fogel family including a 4-month-old baby whose throat was cut, committed by two Palestinian Arab teenagers, Amjad and Hakim Awad, cousins from the village of Awarta.
Captured after an intensive manhunt, the Awads were both convicted and given multiple life sentences. There was even consideration of applying the death penalty, something not done in Israel since Eichmann was hanged in 1962. Unfortunately, the court decided against it.
One might expect that the official Palestinian reaction — after all, they are preparing to petition the UN for statehood again — would have been something like “we condemn violent extremism, although we understand their frustration, etc.”
But they are past pretending even that much.The official reaction is that the butchers are heroes!

Nigerian Jihad

When will governments learn that there is no dialogue or compromise to be had with jihadists? The only option is to ruthlessly demolish them.

Boko Haram vows to fight until Nigeria establishes sharia law The Guardian

Exclusive: Spokesman for Islamist group says it will not stop deadly attacks until country is ruled according to dictates of Allah

The Islamist group Boko Haram, which has killed almost 1,000 people in Nigeria, will continue its campaign of violence until the country is ruled by sharia law, a senior member has told the Guardian.

"We will consider negotiation only when we have brought the government to their knees," the spokesman, Abu Qaqa, said in the group's first major interview with a western newspaper. "Once we see that things are being done according to the dictates of Allah, and our members are released [from prison], we will only put aside our arms – but we will not lay them down. You don't put down your arms in Islam, you only put them aside."

Qaqa, whose name is a pseudonym, said the group's members were spiritual followers of al-Qaida, and claimed they had met senior figures in the network founded by Osama bin Laden during visits to Saudia Arabia.

The interview comes a week after Boko Haram claimed responsibility for Nigeria's single deadliest terrorist attack, which killed 186 people in the northern city of Kano.

In an audio message posted on YouTube on Friday, the group's current leader, Abubakar Shekau, threatened to bomb schools and kidnap family members of government officials.

Qaqa seems an appropriate name for that piece of excrement.

Why I Loathe The NY Slimes

Roger Cohen and the NY slimes are beyond vile. It is not the potential of a nuclear holocaust against the Jewish state that concerns them. What concerns them is the impact on Obama’s reelection prospects as the result of a potential preemptive strike by Israel.

Israpundit:

Obama, Netanyahu & the Iranian Bomb By: Yedidya Atlas, RightSideNews

Roger Cohen’s January 16th column in The New York Times, “Don’t Do It, Bibi” is only the latest in the Obama election campaign’s efforts to pressure Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to take a serious risk at Israel’s being nuked by a nuclear Iran rather than cause any ripples in President Obama campaign for re-election to a second term.

Mr. Cohen begins his rant by quoting the purported advice of an unnamed American ambassador in Europe declaring Mr. Netanyahu to be an ingrate for all that the Obama administration has done for Israel, and strongly suggests the Israeli Prime Minister should “above all stay out of our election-year politics.”

According to Mr. Cohen, President Obama’s is justifiably furious with the Mr. Netanyahu because he had the audacity to “go over his head” by speaking “to a Republican-dominated Congress” even though it was Congress that invited him; again “ingratitude for solid U.S. support”, including in the UN; and the Netanyahu government’s refusal to declare a second freeze on building houses for Jews over the 1949 armistice lines “for the sake of peace negotiations” even though the first unprecedented freeze failed to bring the Palestinians back to the negotiations table. But for Mr. Cohen, Obama can do no wrong, and Netanyahu can do no right.

Should anyone think the existential threat to Israel is more serious than Mr. Obama’s re-election next November, Roger Cohen disabuses of this notion. “I would add a further piece of advice to Netanyahu if he cares about his dysfunctional relationship with Obama — and he should because Israelis know the United States matters…,” opines Mr. Cohen. “That advice is: Do not attack Iran this spring or summer.”

Mr. Cohen writes of Netanyahu’s chutzpah for considering bombing Iran, and this “despite a call from Obama last Thursday and messages from Defense Secretary Leon Panetta.”

But Mr. Cohen from atop his high horse in The New York Times cuts to the chase: “Then there is the American political calculus. An Israeli strike a few months before the U.S. election in November would stymie Obama. He would be in no position,” Mr. Cohen decries, “to express anger given the clout of the pro-Israel lobby, the important Jewish vote in Florida, and the fulsome support any Israeli bombing would get from the Republican contender.”

But Mr. Cohen is not alone in this barrage to block an Israeli pre-emptive strike against Iran. Aaron David Miller, former State Department Mideast advisor, brings the same message in his November 8, 2011, article in Foreign Policy wherein he brings five reasons that Israel “might want to think long and hard about preemptively striking Iran’s nuclear facilities.”

Nazi Events Planned

A full schedule of events is being planned by the international leftist and jihadist annihilationist movements that oppose the existence of Israel and the right of the Jewish people to live in their homeland. Such monstrous evil is being tolerated in the free world and treated as though these are ordinary "activist" movements instead of the genocidal, nazi-like cause that this really is.

Israpundit:

The bastards are coming again to attacks us.
The Meir Amit, Intelligence and Terrorism Information Center

The networks waging the campaign to delegitimize Israel are planning a series of propaganda displays for 2012, some of them in the upcoming months. They intend to hold marches (promoted by Hamas), a protest fly-in to Ben-Gurion International Airport, a flotilla and propaganda events for the “Israeli apartheid week.”

Overview

1. After the campaign to delegitimize Israel had been waged successfully for two years (e.g., the Goldstone Report in 2009 and the Mavi Marmara flotilla in 2010), in 2011 Israel managed to contain it. Despite the intensive activities made by the networks involved in the campaign, their propaganda events (flotillas, a fly-in, the BDS1 campaign, lawfare, etc.) were either failures or did not meet their full expectations.

2. An examination of the websites and public statements of individuals connected to the networks participating in the campaign reveals that despite their failure, they are still planning to challenge Israel, and to that end hold meetings to analyze the situation, learn the lessons of past failures and coordinate their next moves. The networks are aware that the campaign cannot be won in one battle, and therefore, they plan to make propaganda capital with a series of tactical events with high potential for media coverage.


3. Thus a number of propaganda events are planned for the upcoming months, the most prominent of which are marches originating in the Arab states bordering on Israel, and possibly also from the Palestinian Authority, to be held on or around the Israeli Arab “Land Day” (March 30); a protest fly-in to Ben-Gurion International Airport (April 15, a week after Easter); and the “Israeli apartheid week” in various Western and other countries, especially on college campuses (February and March). There are also plans to reach the Gaza Strip by sea with a large flotilla (the idea is still being examined) or with lone boats (logistically and politically easier to send than a large flotilla).


4. Beyond the showcase events, the delegitimization campaign‘s routine anti-Israeli activities continue unabated, especially in the West (particularly Britain and the United States). They include the BDS campaign, which is gaining momentum and is waged in the Palestinian Authority as well; lawfare, manifested by the continuing attempts to bring senior Israeli figures to trial in Western countries and by possible appeals (lodged by both the delegitimization campaign and Palestinian Authority) to international legal forums such as the International Criminal Court and the International Court of Justice.

5. Of all the events, the most at this stage significant is the plan to hold marches from the Arab states to the borders of the State of Israel (mentioned were Jordan, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt, and the Palestinian Authority). Hamas activists in the Gaza Strip and Britain are also involved in the media preparations, among them Ismail Haniya and Mahmoud al-Zahar, who made a public appeal for people to march to the borders of Israel on “Land Day” to “forcefully push the Palestinian cause back [to center stage]” (YouTube). Muhammad Sawalha and Zaher Birawi, two prominent Hamas activists in Britain who are participating in the campaign to delegitimize Israel, also appeared in a video posted on YouTube to promote the marches (see below). In addition, Zaher Birawi gave an interview in which he represented himself as the spokesman for the “global march to Jerusalem” (GMJ) (Al-Quds TV, January 27, 2012). Hamas’ public involvement in the marches is exceptional because so far its public attention has focused on the land and sea convoys to the Gaza Strip.

6. The following is initial information about the various events currently being organized:

Liam Neeson Loves islam

Liam Neeson is the latest celebrity to reveal himself to be a total nitwit. What else does he find beautiful and spiritual? The subjugation, oppression and forced shrouding of women, female genital mutilations, honor murders, beheadings, the persecution and slaughter of Christians, the call to Jewish genocide, the executions of apostates and homosexuals etc.? You have to wonder what planet these hollywood people are living on. Are they completely oblivious to what is occuring around the world in the name of islam? Or the bloody history of islamic conquests? Perhaps Liam should ask the Coptic Christians in Egypt, Christians in Sudan, Nigeria, Ethiopia, Iraq et al, what they think of the islamic call to prayer and those "beautiful" mosques where blood curdling calls to murder infidels occur with regularity.

The Traitors of Peace Now

I have nothing but contempt for the traitorous scum of peace now. They are the worst of Israel’s and the Jewish people’s enemies. Do they imagine that aiding in the ethnic cleansing of Jews from Judea and Samaria will spare themselves from the genocidal aims of hamas, fatah and the rest of the world’s jihadists and leftists? Do they think the annihilationists will stop at the green line? Do they and the elite members of Israeli society believe that they can run away from their Jewish identity and therefore not be targets of ethnic cleansing and genocide?

“MIGRON in the spotlight”
Six months ago, Justice Beinisch ruled regarding other settlement disputes “all land not specifically designated as “state land” would henceforth be considered “private [Palestinian] land.”. This decision is now impacting many settlements. Ted Belman

By Arlene Kushner

My readers have heard from me about Mitzpe Avichai, and now it is time to turn our attention to Migron — which presents some very serious issues. You will learn things here that it is unlikely you’ve heard from your mainstream media sources.
.
Migron is a Jewish community on a hilltop in the Binyamin Regional Council in Samaria, north of Jerusalem. With 49 families, it is the largest of the communities that are frequently referred to as ”unauthorized settlements.”

Source: Indynewsisrael
In order to properly understand the situation of this community, we will need a bit of background, which has been provided by a resident of Migron who serves as a spokesperson:

In 1960, the king of Jordan divided the area where Migron is now located into some 60 plots and gave them to individual families. It was, however, with the proviso that they begin farming within three years, or the land would revert back to the kingdom. No farming was done, not for three years and not for seven years — which is when the land came under Israeli control.
Land that reverted back to the kingdom should have become Israeli state land. This should have been the end of the story. (As I understand it, to ensure there would be no problem, the Jews who came to establish Migron purchased the land in any event.)

Antisemitism in Germany

While bloodthirsty jihadists rampage around the globe and Iran comes ever closer to acquiring nuclear weapons, Germans view Israel as the biggest threat in the world.

German report: 20% of Germans are anti-Semitic By BENJAMIN WEINTHAL, JERUSALEM POST CORRESPONDENT
24/01/2012

Islamic-based anti-Semitism present among German Muslims.



BERLIN - The German government released on Monday the findings of a two year inquiry into modern anti-Semitism in the Federal Republic, showing that latent anti-Semitism affects one of every five Germans.

The 202 page study, entitled "Anti-Semitism in Germany," covered a wide spectrum of German anti-Semitism, including hatred of the Jewish state as a manifestations of anti-Semitism within the Left movement and Islamic-animated loathing of Israel and Jews, especially from Iran's regime and the Turkish media.


Dr. Wahied Wahdat-Hagh, a member of the ten member commission, told The Jerusalem Post on Tuesday, that the "experts came to the conclusion that the ideology of the Iranian regime is anti-Semitic." According to the report, "The state anti-Semitism is, however, not only relevant on the propaganda level" in the Islamic Republic of Iran. The study notes that Iran's anti-Semitic ideology plays a role in Germany.

When asked what the report means by Iran's regime not limiting its anti-Semitism to its domestic agenda, Wahdat-Hagh said, Iran supports foreign anti-Semitic entities "militarily, financially and ideologically." He cited the Lebanese group Hezbollah, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ).

Did it really take a panel of experts to determine that the Iranian regime is antisemitic? And how does that explain the antisemitism of native Germans?

The Two State Solution

A two-state solution already exists and has for several decades, Israel and Jordan. This is the ideal solution. Anyone who opposes it and insists that “palestinian” statehood can only come about through Israeli territorial concessions, exposes themselves as having the destruction of Israel as their real goal, not the well-being of the “palestinians” which they have long claimed to be concerned about.

Via Israpundit:

The Path to Peace for Palestinians and the Hashemites By Alan Bergreen, AMERICAN THINKER

The only viable peace settlement between the Palestinians and Israelis which satisfies the legitimate national aspirations of both parties within geopolitically stable and rational boundaries requires inclusion of the territories, institutions, and resources of former eastern Palestine (presently Jordan) as part of the mix.

That added venue would greatly enhance prospects for a Palestinian state in a territory adequate to its needs, and it would be minimally threatening, strategically and demographically, to Israel. It would also provide the added advantage and example of an overwhelmingly Palestinian polity, already operating with vastly greater success than the dysfunctional, warring camps west of the Jordan River.

Moreover, such an arrangement would provide a requirement critical to Israel’s future security: namely, an outlet for Palestinian demographic pressures west of the Jordan River, while potentially relieving Israel of administrative responsibilities for the Arabs remaining there. This would result either from the migration of Palestinians eastward, attracted by the prospects of a newborn Palestinian state, or by arrangement with the government of future Jordan/Palestine to provide citizenship and local administration to Arab communities remaining in Judea and Samaria.

But what is crucial from the standpoint of selling this idea to the Jordanians is the fact that this approach also confers critically needed long-term legitimacy on the Hashemite regime, itself an alien oligarchy which has ruled the area since British authorities acquiesced in what was effectively the invasion of the territory in late 1920 by the Bedouin forces of Abdullah I.

Consideration of these benefits and their implications have been consistently overlooked or blithely dismissed by commentators on the region and, mysteriously, omitted from serious public policy discussions. It is imperative for Israel’s sake, and for that of the Palestinians as well, that they now be explored.

Truth be told, the Hashemites’ days may be numbered in any event. Historically, they are clearly interlopers in the region and heirs to the arbitrary legacies of British imperialism. Moreover, they rule a nation composed overwhelmingly of ethnic “Palestinians,” by whatever definition that may be assessed. In many instances they are blood relations of the residents of the territories west of the Jordan, who, in their own right, were Jordanian citizens prior to 1967.

And if the “shell game” of Jordanian/Palestinian national identities were any more confused, it might be noted that in 1948, the Second Arab-Palestinian conference proclaimed then-Transjordanian monarch Abdullah I “King of Palestine” and called for the unification of the territories west of the Jordan River, with the Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan to the east.

For that matter, the present Jordanian queen, Rania Al Abdullah (née Al Yassin), was born to Palestinian parents formerly from Tulkarm, large portions of which were captured by Israel in the War of Independence and incorporated into the city of Netanya and a number of Arab villages today in Israel proper. Hence, the question “Where’s Palestine?” is not a frivolous one, and the relationship between Palestinians and Jordanians is not a foreign one. In fact, said relationship can be summed up thus:

Obama's Disasterous Decision on Keystone

Big Media's Entrenched Hostility Towards Israel

The fact that a writer can spin her experience receiving superior prenatal care in Israel into a narrative of Israeli society as "racist" and "militaristic"-never mind that she as a gentile foreigner temporarily residing in Israel received the same quality care as Jewish Israeli citizens-just goes to show the inherent anti-Israel and yes even antisemitic bias in leftist media circles. Her column was sheer lunacy. Some supporters of Israel blame the lack of Israeli hasbara for the bad publicity Israel receives worldwide. But no amount of hasbara will be able to counter such entrenched hostility toward the Jewish state. How do you counter the kind of hostility which motivates members of the media to twist even the most positive aspects of Israel into a story representing something dark and sinister about Israeli society?

PJ Media:

The Three Rules of Western Discourse and Why The Media Must Always Blame Israel

Posted By Barry Rubin On January 16, 2012 @ 1:43 pm In Uncategorized | 41 Comments

It is truly astonishing how, it often seems, Western media coverage must blame Israel for everything that “goes wrong” in the Middle East, including murderous hostility to Israel.
Sentences often seem carefully formulated to push this claim and exclude any possibility of balance, much less accuracy. And no matter what the subject, it seems, this message must be snuck in.
Consider these two paragraphs in a Washington Post story about the Egyptian government’s cancellation of a Jewish pilgrimage to a site in Egypt:

The government’s move underscores the changing relationship between Israel and post-Hosni Mubarak Egypt. The former president maintained relations with Israel, as laid out in the 1979 Camp David peace treaty, in part by curbing civil liberties with his expansive police force. Since his ouster last winter, anti-Israeli sentiment driven by Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians has risen to the surface, and Israeli-Egyptian tensions have grown.
Relations soured further in the fall after a mid-August cross-border attack from Egypt led to the killing of at least five Egyptian border guards as Israeli troops pursued alleged militants. Many activists called for revisions of the peace treaty and protests outside the Israeli Embassy turned violent when some demonstrators stormed the building.

Let’s list the subtle points made in these few sentences:
1. Egyptian resentment toward Israel and the treaty supposedly emerges from the use of repression to maintain it. So is Israel or peace with Israel responsible for the lack of democracy and free speech in Egypt under Mubarak? In fact, of course, there was a huge amount of criticism of the policy toward Israel and the latter country was continually attacked in the strongest language by both opposition and government circles. Since Mubarak was the dictator he could maintain relations with Israel if he wanted to do so. Hence the statement that he maintained them by repression is just false.
2. In fact, the relationship was called a “cold peace” precisely because the Mubarak government limited it (official boycotts of Israelis; harassment of Egyptian firms that wanted to do business with Israel; continual extremist anti-Israel propaganda in the state-controlled Egyptian media; denial of visas to Egyptians — mainly Christian pilgrims — who wanted to go to Israel, etc.)
2. Why has anti-Israel sentiment in Egypt risen in the last year? Because, we are told, Israel treated the Palestinians so badly. What about the ideological changes in Egypt? If Israel had done nothing, the same result would have happened. And how has Israel treated Palestinians badly in the last year? It has been a relatively quiet year actually.
3. No mention of historic levels of hatred toward Israel and Jews in Egypt, or of the emergence of revolutionary Islamist groups that — including the two leading parties in the election — openly call for Israel’s extinction and use extensive antisemitic rhetoric.

Antisemitism in the Dutch Press

This is unbelievable. So Israel's committment to providing the best medical care
possible is spun to be some nazi-like desire to produce a master race. What's
wrong with these people? Instead of this woman being grateful for the high quality prenatal care she received in Israel and writing a positive article about it, this is the sick way she twists her experience. Whatever Israel does is spun by the media to be something sinister. If it helps earthquake victims in Haiti, Israel is accused of stealing organs. If it provides high quality prenatal care for its citizens, it is attacked for wanting perfection for the chosen people rather than being seen as an example of a modern, progressive society. And "critics" of Israel feign surprise when they are accused of antisemitism, yet we are constantly bombarded by hostile, ugly trash about Israel such as this.

Honest Reporting:

Dutch Daily: “The Chosen People Have to be Perfect”
January 12, 2012 14:33
by ManagingTeam
[Translate]
This is a guest post by Yochanan Visser of Missing Peace.

Last week the Dutch Christian daily ‘Trouw’ reached a new low when it published a vicious article about prenatal care in Israel entitled: “The chosen people have to be perfect”.

The writer, Ilse van Heusden, gave birth to a healthy baby boy while temporarily living in Israel.

She succeeded in portraying the prenatal care in Israel as a government instigated ‘military operation’ aimed at the production of babies as perfect as possible.

Apart from distortions and lies the article contained many accusations and insinuations which are reminiscent of classic anti-Semitic rants.

Requests

After the publication of the article we [Missing Peace] contacted ‘Trouw’ with a request to allow the publication of an op-ed in which we could debunk the false claims and lies in Van Heusden’s article.

‘Trouw’ did not even bother to respond, nor did the editors respond to a similar request by the Dutch branch of the Likud party.

Examples

Here is a prime example of the anti-Semitic content of the article:

Van Heusden:

To be pregnant in Israel is comparable to a military operation. Countless echos and blood tests should produce the perfect baby, nothing can be left to the luck of the draw. The state demands healthy babies and a lot of them too.

UN Silent on hamas Reign of Terror in Gaza

I cannot feel any sympathy whatsoever for this stabbing victim who refers to hamas terrorists as "resistance fighters". This means that this individual is ok with hamas killing Jews but opposes any harm hamas inflicts on his fellow so-called "palestinians". When your society embraces jihad terrorists to be your rulers, you should expect them to unleash their savagery against you.



Gaza Activist Stabbed After Exposing Hamas Use of Human Shields U.N. Must Condemn Latest Hamas Brutality

GENEVA, Jan. 17 - The stabbing in Gaza of a Palestinian rights activist after he exposed Hamas' contempt for its own people by using them as human shields, and after he criticized the radical Islamic group for torture, abuse and trampling free speech, should be strongly condemned by the United Nations—both as an attack on the victim’s human rights, and on the idea of freedom of expression.
Masked attackers on Friday stabbed Mahmud Abu Rahma multiple times in the back, leg and shoulders, it was revealed today.
This latest attack on a rights activist underscores Gaza's brutally enforced intolerance for any discourse other the anti-Israel mantras of Hamas, which rules the area with an iron fist.
The attack only proves the simple truth of the victim's words.
Abu Rahma's crime was publishing an article in the Palestinian press that dared to criticize Hamas' "outrageous attack upon free expression and peaceful assembly" over the past year, and the "hundreds of cases of torture and abuse."
Abu Rahma also dared to publish basic facts about Gaza that completely contradict the Hamas narrative, and that of the UN's Goldstone Report, which repeatedly found "no evidence" that Hamas used civilians as human shields.
What is remarkable is that with all of the massive UN resources ostensibly dedicated to protecting Palestinians—the 16-member Division for Palestinian Rights, the 20-odd resolutions on Palestinians last year by the General Assembly, the Human Rights Council's special agenda item on Palestinians at every session, resolutions on Palestinians by UNESCO, the WHO and numerous other agencies, the full-time post of "Special Rapporteur on the Situation of Human Rights in Palestine" held by Richard Falk—still, with all that and more, the world body somehow managed to turn a blind eye to the massive violations of Palestinian rights described by Abu Rahma (click here for source):

Saudi Funded Curriculum in America's Schools

Public school teachers are going along with this disgusting lying propaganda unquestioningly because the teachers themselves are primarily anti-American radical leftists. Either parents need to pull their children out of these subversive government run schools that “teach” false history funded by saudi blood money, or take control of their local school districts and become watchdogs to make sure this sort of garbage is kept away from their children’s classrooms. We need to act as a free and proud people once again and stop the saudi islamic supremacist infiltration into every aspect of our society and culture.

Taqiyya for Kids By Janet Tassel, AMERICAN THINKER

It was the first week in October in Newton, an upscale suburb of Boston, and Tony Pagliuso’s daughter, a sophomore at Newton South High School, was visibly disturbed. When Tony asked her the problem, she showed him a passage from the chapter she was assigned in her World History Class. It was a chapter called “Women, an Essay,” from a supplemental text called The Arab World Notebook. In a paragraph devoted to women “in the struggle for independence from colonial powers,” we find:

Over the past four decades, women have been active in the Palestinian resistance movement. Several hundred have been imprisoned, tortured, and killed by Israeli occupation forces since the latest uprising, “intifada,” in the Israeli occupied territories.

Pagliuso assured his daughter that this was “total propaganda,” and took the matter up with the young teacher, a Miss Jessica Engel, who couldn’t understand what all the fuss was about. The material had been “vetted” and was deemed “appropriate,” she said, “and would stay in the curriculum. After all, she continued, the head of the history department had gotten this material at an outreach workshop of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard!

Thence to the principal, Joel Stembridge, who glared at Pagliuso and asked, “How do you pronounce ‘Pagliuso’?” and dismissing him brusquely with a refusal to apologize, added: “If you’re unhappy with this, you should know that next year we’re planning to teach material that will be even more inflammatory to your sensibilities.” (Where is Ferris Bueller when you need him?) Since Miss Jessica Engel had devoted one day each to Judaism and Christianity while spending 2 ½ weeks on Islam, Tony wasn’t sure how much more inflammatory things could get.

A couple of weeks later, nine stalwart Newton citizens presented themselves at the Newton School Committee meeting, where superintendent David Fleischman, and even the mayor, Setti Warren, were present. The citizens were courteously received, and as it happens Fleishman announced shortly thereafter that indeed the chapter “didn’t meet the learning goals of the class” and had been removed from the curriculum.

“Didn’t meet the learning goals” is Eduspeak for “What the hell is this and how the hell did it get in?” The answer to the latter is, as noted, Harvard, which, as it happens, held a seminar on Israel and Palestine at Newton South in April 2011. And Newton is far from the only community to take its lead on matters Islamic from Harvard. Public and private schools all over Massachusetts send teachers to the Outreach Center at Harvard for guidance and (free) materials. The program, like the Center for Middle Eastern Studies itself, is heavily Saudi-funded.

The answer to what it is can be found in a number of places. In 2005, responding to a complaint from a teacher in Anchorage, Alaska, the American Jewish Committee published a thorough critique of the Notebook (the full report Propaganda, Proselytizing, and Public Education, is available at the AJC website), thanks to which Anchorage stopped using the book. As background, the AJC report explains:

PA Mufti Calls for Jewish Genocide

So we are told by elite opinion makers that islamic Jew-hatred derives from Israel's behavior and has nothing to do with the teachings of islam itself. Yet here we have the PA's mufti citing the hadith to justify his call for the genocide of Jews. These same folks who blame Israel for antisemitism claim the PA is the "moderate" alternative to hamas and that Israel should surrender territory to these equally genocidal Jew-haters.

Leave Our Troops Alone

There is no reason to treat with respect evil and brutal savages who throw acid in the face of women and girls, bomb girls schools and otherwise commit heinous atrocities against anyone who engages in any form of pleasure. Our government and media elites insist on punishing our soldiers for any minor infraction while treating our worst enemies with respect under the absurd notion that our behavior rather than their ideology is the motivating factor behind their desire to wage relentless jihad against us. Leave our troops alone.

Atlas:

Tinkle Timing
As soon as the Marine victory tinkle story "broke," I went public immediately with my support here and here on news broadcasts: "So what?" The name-calling and attacks commenced, trying to squelch the beginnings of any support for our fighting men. The enemedia cannot get enough of the trashing of our men and women in uniform. Pure evil.

Who leaked the marine video? That is the real story. The timing of its release is deliberate and points to the ugliest of motives.

Our boys and girls are coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan after ten years of battling an enemy so evil and bloodthirsty that most Americans would weep if they had any idea what these savages do, how they "live" and die. The people haven't a real clue, because an enemedia obfuscates and either under-reports or doesn't report at all the actual news -- and when they do, they speak affectionately of an enemy so brutal and bloodthirsty that it defies the Western mind. Jihadis did far worse to American corpses in Fallujah and Somalia, and it was excused, downplayed, denied, forgotten. But this? The coverage is nonstop.

Our troops are coming home, and this story breaks? Now? Why? So that our troops have a Vietnam welcome? So that the American people will rebuke our returning soldiers? The victory tinkle took place in Spring or Summer of 2011. Why now?

Pro-Sharia Indoctrination in Public Schools

The time has come for parents to pull their children out of subversive government run schools. They are better off being home schooled. If islam is going to be taught, students should be taught the truth, not a whitewashed version of islam. And they should be taught the virtues of America and western civilization and its superiority.

Israpundit:

Adopting Pro-Sharia Textbooks in US schools
When states should step in.

Alyssa A. Lappen

One of the books that has been the subject of concern over its pro-Islamic bias.
In August 2011, a Marietta, Ga. 7th grade teacher gave a three-page homework lesson from InspirEd Educators Inc. of Roswell, Ga. to students to help them discuss pros and cons of school uniforms. “Women in the West do not have the protection of the Sharia as we do,” declared a letter from a Saudi wife named Ahlima. “If our marriage has problems, my husband can take another wife rather than divorce me, and I would still be cared for.” She’s glad that Saudi women “have the Sharia.” When parents objected to the assignment’s pro-Islam stance, the school district changed the curriculum.
In 2010, Act for America compiled research from former assistant education secretary Diane Ravitch, American Textbook Council and Textbook League on how 38 public school texts handled Islam; last month, Christian Action Network launched a national campaign warning of bias.While school assignments sugarcoat sharia, the doctrine requires “defense” of community and permits “payback” against perceived enemies like U.S. servicemen and all Israelis, according to influential Muslim Brotherhood jurist Yusuf Qaradawi. Thus a naturalized Kosovo man arrested in Florida Jan. 9 planned an attack to “die in the Islamic way.” The Council on Islamic American Relations (CAIR) has long warned members not to aid the FBI and Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) agents seek more “hate crime” studies — but eliminations of solid counter terror strategies.
Some 22 states and U.S. territories currently maintain central textbook “adoption” standards to either recommend or require specific textbooks for public schools. Textbook adoption originated during Reconstruction to ensure that the Civil War narrative included Confederate views in southern states. In the public free-for-all that ultimately developed, minorities apparently appropriated undue influence. Thus, texts often downplay European history but include material unrelated to the U.S. Some books, for example, tout Mali’s medieval Islamic ruler Mansa Musa and his 1324 trip (with thousands of slaves) to Mecca. But they provide no connection to U.S. history — as none exists.
In the last two decades, sanitized Islamic history and dogma crept into broad use in U.S. public school books thanks largely to Shabbir Mansuri; to advantage Muslims, he maximized the minority role in textbook adoption (and falsely claimed to be a USC-educated chemical engineer). In 1990, he founded the Fountain Valley, Ca. Council on Islamic Education to promote Islam in textbooks and curricula, which he calls a “bloodless” revolution inside American junior high and high school classes. Mansuri derived the idea in 1988, after seeing a textbook disparage physical aspects of Muslim prayer, he says.
Independent review agencies affirm that CIE—deceptively renamed in 2006 as Institute on Religion and Civic Values (IRCV)—powerfully influences U.S. textbooks via state standards it helped to write.

State Department Offering Education to Women From muslim Countries

This is such an outrage that while American students are paying thousands
for a college education our State Department is bringing over foreign muslim
women to provide them with a "world class education" in science, technology and engineering that I assume will be paid for by American tax payers. So they will have the technological know-how to better wage jihad on America. When will our elites get the message that good-will gestures to the muslim world will never ingratiate muslims to us. Their koran calls for our subjugation.

The U.S. government is partnering with dozens of U.S. colleges to provide women from Muslim counties with a "world-class" education in science, technology, engineering and math.

Sec, of State Hillary Clinton announced that the scholarship program will "create new opportunities for women from predominantly Muslim nations to pursue world-class undergraduate educations in science, technology, engineering, and math."

Secretary Clinton is a graduate of Wellesley College, one of the many all-female schools participating in the NeXXt Scholarship program.

The State Department said it is partnering with nearly 40 women's colleges to provide a "high-quality" education in science, technology, engineering and math. In addition, the scholarship program will provide mentorship, networking, support, and enrichment activities for the foreign students.

Energy Independence

With our vast energy resources such as oil, shale oil, coal and natural gas, we could not only be energy independent but we could be the world's largest energy producer and exporter. But every attempt to make the nation energy independent, whether by building a pipeline from Canada to Texas, oil drilling or extracting shale oil, is hindered by radical environmentalists and the federal government. It is treasonous that our government has allowed our economic and national security to be held hostage by the terrorist sponsoring OPEC oil cartel.



Taking Energy Independence Seriouslyby Lawrence Kadish

Print Send Comment RSS Share

At year end, 2011, as Americans emptied their wallets at the gas pump and crude oil reached almost $100 a barrel, OPEC kingpin Saudi Arabia reported an $81.6 billion 2011 budget surplus.

The White House action at the same time was to ask Congress to increase our debt ceiling by $1.2 trillion to $16.4 trillion to cover budget deficits.

Nations decline and fall when their economies and monetary policies are incompetently managed. Unfortunately, it appears to be a lesson lost on too many of our leaders who have allowed the very stability of our nation to be imperiled by budget deficits and mounting debt. Our leaders have also failed on Energy Independence, allowing the cost and supply of the strategic commodity of oil to be controlled by foreign nations.

The ominous linkage between cyclical recessions and our repeated failure to achieve energy independence and oil price stability has caused much hardship on our citizenry and severe damage to our economy.

The historical evidence is clear. Whenever oil prices spiked as they did between 1972-1980, and then again between 2003-2008 and beyond, recessions in America followed.

In 1972, crude oil prices were $ 3.60 a barrel. By 1980, the cost of that barrel was $ 37. This 1000% oil price increase contributed to a negative economic chain reaction. The CPI more than doubled during this period. Double digit Inflation ensued, causing the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates. This, in turn, sent the Prime Rate to over 20% by 1980. A recession followed.

Whenever the United States took serious notice of oil prices as an underlying cause of these problems, Congress would debate energy savings and energy independence. A concerned OPEC would then divert America's attention by opening their spigots, increasing production and causing oil prices to drop to under $20 a barrel and remain relatively low for a period of time. While the immediate crisis would be averted by these actions, Congress did little to protect our future. Consequently, by 2003, oil was up again to $30 a barrel and steadily increased to over $90 in January 2008 and spiked to over $140 in July 2008.

Egyptian Soccer Fans Chant For the Genocide of Jews

We are always being told by liberals the fiction that "extremists" represent a tiny fringe minority of the muslim population while the vast majority are "peaceful" and "moderate". In reality, genocidal Jew-hatred is mainstream in islam. So obsessed are the Arab-muslims with the Jews that this Jew-hatred is even expressed during a soccer game. It is unthinkable for example that football fans in America would go to a game and carry signs and shout for the genocide of any group of people. But this is normative behavior in the islamic world. Liberals give us this childish blather about how there is good and bad in everyone and we can't judge an entire people. They refuse to accept that hatred such as this is inherent to their culture. Egypt, like the rest of the islamic world, is another failed state, which despite its far larger population and land mass, cannot compete with Israel economically. So let the Egyptians wallow in their hatred, Israel is here to stay. And Israel's existence and success in contrast to their failures eats away at the islamic supremacists.

The Obama Era: Egyptian soccer fans call for a new Holocaust against Jews
I love this confusion of Muslims. They deny the Holocaust, but want another one to take place.... or they say that the Jews deserved it. Like 911, they deny it but say "They deserved it," or they will "get another 911."

Must be hard to be a devout genocidal Muslim.

Imagine if anyone, anywhere was calling for the annihilation of Muslims. Holy moe. The world would convulse in rage, retribution, anger, recrimination ......no need, no one ever calls for it. Only the Muslims call for annihilation.

How would the Guardian cover such a story?

Well, can someone please explain why the following call, by masses of Egyptian soccer fans (at an April 6th match) for another Holocaust against the Jews, hasn’t been universally condemned, or even reported, by the Guardian or anyone else in the mainstream media?

Fake Christians to Hold Demonic Antisemitic Conference in Bethlehem

Depraved and evil describes every last individual who is partaking in this grotesque abomination. They certainly aren’t legitimate practitioners of the Christian faith, but stealth muslim jihadists and radical leftists. They have nothing to say in regard to Christians being persecuted and slaughtered in muslim nations and yet these demonic fiends are gathering at a conference to demonize Jews and Israel.



Bethlehem to Host Church Conference Which Demonizes Israel Theologians who are breathing new life into a kind of demonology which criminalizes all Israelis will meet in Bethlehem in March.

By Giulio Meotti, INN

Next March, the Bible College in Bethlehem will host dozens of US theologians, activists and ministries for the “Christ at the Checkpoint 2012 Conference”.

It is to be a major religious and political event meant to demonize Israel and to support the Palestinian Intifada against the “ethnocentric” Jewish State.

The impressive range of Christian theologians and pastors from many churches located in the United States make the gravity of the upcoming conference clear.

Samuel Rodriguez, President of the US National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, is a speaker.

Also attending are popular US preacher and “spiritual adviser” to Bill Clinton, Tony Campolo, and President of the World Evangelical Alliance and Asia Evangelical Alliance, Sang-Bok David Kim.

Two of the conference organisers, Stephen Sizer and Sami Awad, adamantly defended the Gaza flotilla sent in May 2010 by the Turkish terror group IHH.

Another speaker, Ben White, has shared a political platform with Azzam Tamimi, who has endorsed suicide bombings against Jewish civilians in the past.

In the last few months we have seen an increase of attacks on Israel by many Christian denominations. While the United States is home to millions of Christian supporters of Israel, these are anti-Jewish Churches which are more closely attached to global public opinion, European bureaucracy, the media industry, the United Nations and various legal forums.

In fact, the “Bethlehem Call” manifesto, which serves as platform for the Bethlehem 2012 Conference, has just been published on the websites of the Would Council of Churches, the Global Ministries of the United Church of Christ and the Disciples of Christ.

The Bethlehem Call defines Israel as an “illegal regime” and a “crime against humanity”, it promotes “international boycott, divestment and sanctions campaigns” against Israel, labels the more neutral Churches as “accomplices in crimes against humanity” and attacks Christian Zionism as “a crime and sin as defying the core of the Gospel”.

The Bethlehem Call also updates the “Kairos Palestine”, the major document used as global tool for the Christian struggle against Israel speaking in the behalf of “us Christian Palestinians”. Even the name of the Catholic Custodian of the Holy Land, Pierbattista Pizzaballa, prominently appears among the most important signatures in this website: http://www.kairospalestine.ps/sites/default/Documents/English.pdf

In 2007, the World Council of Churches, the umbrella organization of liberal Protestants claiming a membership of 580 million worshippers, also produced the “Amman Call”, which denies Israel’s right to continue to exist as a Jewish State by insisting that millions of Palestinians have the “right of return” to Israel.

In 2008, the World Council of Churches convened a group of Protestant and Catholic theologians to review the underpinnings of Christian attitudes about Israel. The group published the “Bern Perspective”, which, among other things, instructed Christians to understand all biblical references to Israel only “metaphorically”.

The theological meeting also marked a return to “replacement theology”, the medieval view that the Church has replaced the people of Israel in God’s plan and that all biblical references to Israel refer to the “new Israel”—that is, to Christians.

Replacement calumny has changed its language, yet still is basically a death sentence for the Jewish people. Now it is Israelis, like Lucifer, who were God’s chosen but were cast out for their rebellious and evil ways, and deserve to be obliterated from the “Holy Land”, according to this macabre theology.

Taken together, it seems these Churches are now breathing new life into a kind of demonology which criminalizes all the Jews living between the Jordan River and the Meditarranean.

The writer is an Italian journalist with Il Foglio who writes regularly for Arutz Sheva. He is the author of the much discussed book “A New Shoah”, that researched the personal stories of Israel’s terror victims, published by Encounter. His writing has appeared in publications, such as the Wall Street Journal, Frontpage and Commentary and has been translated for Israeli media.

Saudi Hacker Targets Israel

This saudi hacker says he wanted to hurt Israel. A pathetic attempt at that. So what else is new? He is representative of the pathological obsession on the part of the arab-muslim world to destroy Israel rather than focusing on bettering their own miserable lives. Saudi arabia is a backward, barbaric, seventh century fiefdom which executes women for adultery and practicing witchcraft, chops off heads and limbs as punishments and outlaws the practice of religions other than islam. All of their wealth derives from oil which westerners discovered and extracted. Saudi arabia's only other export is global terrorism. The country produces nothing in the realms of industry, science and technology or agriculture. On the other hand Israel is a miniscule strip of land with no natural resources. The Jews took a barren dessert and created a productive and successful nation which has emerged as a world leader in science, technology and medicine.

Let the muslim Arabs wallow in their hatred and envy. Not only does the existence of the Jewish state stand in defiance of islamic imperialism, but Israel's success is a stark reminder of the backwardness and abject failure of muslim-Arab civilization.

Israel Hayom:

Striking again, Saudi hacker says 'I want to hurt Israel'

When Israeli credit cards were first leaked by a Saudi hacker on Monday, some experts said the initial number of cards affected -- some 15,000 -- would not be the final tally. On Thursday, it turned out the pessimists were right.


On Thursday afternoon Saudi hacker OxOmar leaked an additional file with the details of 11,000 new cards. Out of this list, Israel's three credit card companies identified 6,048 active Israeli cards, and immediately blocked them. Most of these belonged to Isracard customers. Because some people have more than one card, the Bank of Israel found that as of Thursday night 17,530 Israeli citizens had been affected by the continuous credit card leak.

Except this time the Saudi hacker did not stop at leaking mere names and credit card numbers. He also exposed the Israeli identification numbers and addresses of many Israelis whose credit card numbers he exposed. In addition, tens of thousands of Israelis' email addresses were made public.


"My goal is to hurt Israel -- politically, economically and culturally," the hacker wrote on Thursday in an email exchange with Israel Hayom. "I can't tell you the names of the sites I've hacked into but I have access to tons of Israeli servers including government servers and military contractors." The talkative Saudi hacker reportedly held email conversations with a range of Israeli media outlets. In an email exchange with Israel Army Radio, OxOmar said he was "waiting for the Mossad" to catch up to him, and that people in Saudi Arabia were praying for his success.

Criminalizing Criticism of islam

Outlawing criticism of islam is a disgraceful and shameful act of spineless capitulation to islamic supremacists on the part of moral midget “leaders” the west has the misfortune to be represented by.

I can feel nothing but loathing for Europe which is in the throws of another wave of fascism. A continent which has learned nothing from its own sordid history and instead of standing strong in resisting jihad and sharia is once again appeasing and even embracing evil in the fruitless hope that they will be spared the worst consequences of islamic imperialism.

If we don’t wake up and elect leaders with moral clarity and spine, we Americans are going to follow the same tragic path as Europe.

Via Israpundit:

U.S., E.U. Spearhead Islamic Bid To Criminalize Free Speech The US is now embracing the MB and other Islamist groups. In order to do so for reasons only know to Obama and his close assocdiates, it is necessary to curtail verbal attacks on his bed mates. The EU likewise. Ted Belman

by Soeren Kern, STONEGATE INSTITUTE

The European Union has offered to host the next meeting of the so-called Istanbul Process, an aggressive effort by Muslim countries to make it an international crime to criticize Islam.

The announcement comes less than one month after the United States hosted its own Istanbul Process conference in Washington, DC.

The Istanbul Process – its explicit aim is to enshrine in international law a global ban on all critical scrutiny of Islam and/or Islamic Sharia law – is being spearheaded by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), a bloc of 57 Muslim countries.

Based in Saudi Arabia, the OIC has long pressed the European Union and the United States to impose limits on free speech and expression about Islam.
But the OIC has now redoubled its efforts and is engaged in a determined diplomatic offensive to persuade Western democracies to implement United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) Resolution 16/18, which calls on all countries to combat “intolerance, negative stereotyping and stigmatization of … religion and belief.” (Analysis of the OIC’s war on free speech can be found here and here.)

Resolution 16/18, which was adopted at HRC headquarters in Geneva in March 2011, is widely viewed as a significant step forward in OIC efforts to advance the international legal concept of defaming Islam.

However, the HRC resolution – as well as the OIC-sponsored Resolution 66/167, which was quietly approved by the 193-member UN General Assembly on December 19, 2011 – remains ineffectual as long as it lacks strong support in the West.

The OIC therefore scored a diplomatic coup when the Obama Administration agreed to host a three-day Istanbul Process conference in Washington, DC on December 12-14, 2011. In doing so, the United States gave the OIC the political legitimacy it has been seeking to globalize its initiative to ban criticism of Islam.

Following the Obama Administration’s lead, the European Union now wants to get in on the action by hosting the next Istanbul Process summit, tentatively scheduled for July 2012.

The Guardian is Jew-Baiting Once Again

How about we discuss islamic power in England and Europe. Something which is real and truly problematic. It is impossible for Europeans to conceive of the idea that Americans support Israel out of moral conviction since Europe lacks any moral compass and is itself beholden to the massive islamic supremacist lobby. The guardian is obviously projecting.

The Guardian smears alleged Jewish power in US How pejorative characterization of U.S. supporters of Israel crept into Guardian essay about Rick Santorum


by Adam Levick, CIF WATCH

Dan Savage’s report in CiF America (Rick Santorum’s homophobic frothing, Jan 5) was ostensibly about the anti-gay politics of Republican Presidential candidate, Rick Santorum. However, as with so many critiques of American conservatives in the Guardian, Savage couldnt’ help contextualize Santorum’s views without an unrelated pejorative characterization of Christian Zionists.

While I’m personally sympathetic to Savage’s views on the rights of the LGBT community – and, without question, one of the many moral advantages Israel has over its neighbors is the legal protections afforded to its sexual minorities – there is a passage in his essay as gratuitous as it is bigoted.
As with other Guardian reporters and contributors, Savage’s a priori assumption is that support for Israel couldn’t merely reflect a moral and rational decision by Americans who see Israel as a state which shares American values and national strategic interests.

Savage first critiques what he characterizes as conservative Christians’ dismissal of the LGBT community as a marginal voice:

“…America’s religious conservatives/extremists…argue that the LGBT community is so tiny – just 9 million Americans, according to the Williams Institute – that our calls for civil rights protections and full civil equality shouldn’t be taken seriously.”

He then pivots, quite awkwardly, to Israel:

This is a curious argument coming from the same people – evangelical Christians – who seem to regard Israel as the 51st state in our union. There may be “just” 9 million LGBT Americans – but that number that is greater than the entire population of Israel (7 million). And if we are “just” 3.8% of the US population, the LGBT community – a figure that includes hundreds of thousands of LGBT Jews – is still more than twice the size of the total Jewish community in the United States (1.4% of the population)

in short, [the LGBT community is] not “too small in number”, or too insignificant a portion of the American electorate…to be taken seriously as a political force.

Academia Has Legitimized Antisemitism

No longer can that skunk mearsheimer deny he is an outright antisemite. He and other scoundrels like him who attack Israel in the most vicious way and promote the most vicious lies about Israel, have the audacity to whine that they are unfairly called antisemites because of what they term to be merely "criticism" of Israel.

Why Anti-Semitism Is Moving Toward the Mainstream

In the mid-eighties, Ernst Zundal was prosecuted in Canada for Holocaust denial. For the prosecution to succeed, it had to prove that the holocaust did exist or more specifically that millions Jews really to get exterminated. Many survivor s were called to testify. To his credit the Judge obviously concluded that the holocaust did in fact occur but he went even further. He took “judicial notice” of the fact. This meant that in Canada, the Holocaust is accepted as fact and need not be proven. Ted Belman

by Alan M. Dershowitz, Stonegate Institute

For the first time since the end of World War II, classic anti-Semitic tropes—”the Jews” control the world and are to blame for everything that goes wrong, including the financial crisis; “The Jews killed Christian children in order to use the blood to bake Matzo; the Holocaust never happened—are becoming acceptable and legitimate subjects for academic and political discussion. To understand why these absurd and reprehensible views, once reserved for the racist fringes of academia and politics, are now moving closer to the mainstream, consider the attitudes of two men, one an academic, the other a politician, toward those who express or endorse such bigotry. The academic is Professor Brian Leiter. The politician is Ron Paul.

You’ve probably never heard of Leiter. He’s a relatively obscure professor of jurisprudence, who is trying to elevate his profile by publishing a gossipy blog about law school professors. He is a colleague of John Mearsheimer, a prominent and world famous professor at the University of Chicago.

Several months ago Mearsheimer enthusiastically endorsed a book, really a pamphlet, that included all the classic anti-Semitic tropes. It was entitled “The Wandering Who” and written by Gilad Atzmon, a British version of David Duke, who plays the saxophone and has no academic connections. Atzmon writes that we must take “very seriously” the claim that “the Jewish people are trying to control the world.” He calls the recent credit crunch “the Zio punch.” He says “the Holocaust narrative” doesn’t make “historical sense” and expresses doubt that Auschwitz was a death camp. He invites students to accept the “accusations of Jews making Matzo out of young Goyim’s blood.”

Books and pamphlets of this sort are written every day by obscure anti-Semites and published by disreputable presses that specialize in this kind of garbage. No one ever takes notice, except for neo-Nazis around the world who welcome any additions to the literature of hate.

What is remarkable about the publication of this hateful piece of anti-Semitic trash, is that it was enthusiastically endorsed by two prominent American professors, John Mearsheimer and Richard Falk, who urged readers, including students, to read, “reflect upon” and “discuss widely” the themes of Atzmon’s book. Never before has any such book received the imprimatur of such established academics.

The New Austrian Fascism

An Austrian housewife is the victim of the new European fascism. The wretched, cowardly Austrian authorities have bowed to their islamic supremacist masters and are enforcing islamic blasphemy laws on their own citizens. An appellate court has upheld the conviction of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff on charges of denigrating religious belief because she had the audacity to criticize islam. The OIC is pressuring our own State Department to make criticism of islam a crime in America. I don't expect the American people to put up with what the Europeans are allowing. Western civilization needs to regain the self-respect and confidence to exert and uphold our rights within our own nations and to proclaim unapologetically our cultural superiority and the superiority of our values.

"A Black Day for Austria"

by Soeren Kern
December 26, 2011 at 5:00 am

http://www.hudson-ny.org/2702/sabaditsch-wolff-appeal

An Austrian appellate court has upheld the conviction of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff, a Viennese housewife and anti-Jihad activist, for "denigrating religious beliefs" after giving a series of seminars about the dangers of radical Islam.

The December 20 ruling shows that while Judaism and Christianity can be disparaged with impunity in postmodern multicultural Austria, speaking the truth about Islam is subject to swift and hefty legal penalties.

Although the case has major implications for freedom of speech in Austria, as well as in Europe as a whole, it has received virtually no press coverage in the American mainstream media.

Sabaditsch-Wolff's Kafkaesque legal problems began in November 2009, when she presented a three-part seminar about Islam to the Freedom Education Institute, a political academy linked to the Austrian Freedom Party.

A glossy socialist weekly magazine, NEWS -- all in capital letters -- planted a journalist in the audience to secretly record the first two lectures. Lawyers for the leftwing publication then handed the transcripts over to the Viennese public prosecutor's office as evidence of hate speech against Islam, according to Section 283 of the Austrian Criminal Code (Strafgesetzbuch, StGB). Formal charges against Sabaditsch-Wolff were filed in September 2010; and her bench trial, presided on by one multicultural judge and no jury, began November 23, 2010.

On the first day of the trial, however, it quickly became clear that the case against Sabaditsch-Wolff was not as air-tight as prosecutors had made it out to be. The judge in the case, Bettina Neubauer, pointed out, for example, that only 30 minutes of the first seminar had actually been recorded.

Neubauer also noted that some of the statements attributed to Sabaditsch-Wolff were offhand comments made during breaks and not a formal part of the seminar. Moreover, only a few people heard these comments, not 30 or more -- the criterion under Austrian law for a statement being "public." In any event, Sabaditsch-Wolff says her comments were not made in a public forum because the seminars were held for a select group of people who had registered beforehand.

continue reading
This is the wrong argument made by the defense. It should be argued that the law itself is illegitimate. It doesn't matter whether she spoke before 30 people or 30,000 people. Freedom of speech is a fundamental right of western civilization.

The "occupy" vermin made use of nazi-inspired antisemitic imagery as it crashed the Tournament of Roses parade. Although the media has pretended that the occupy movement is something noble and covered up the rapes, robberies, arson and other violence involved in the protests, the occupy movement is actually one of hatred and destruction, of rabid antisemitism and anti-Americanism.

'Occupy' Crashes Rose Parade: Attacks 'Corporate Greed' With 70-Foot Nazi-Era Octopus Depicting Global Jewish Conspiracy

American Power,

Donald Douglas Are people so afraid to stand up against the hatred, public hatred broadcast for the entire world to see? The image of the octopus has been used in attacks on the Jews for over a century. Here's a roundup on the Jewish conspiracy octopus at the Coordinating Forum for Countering Anti-Semitism.

And the local organizers didn't even try to hide their hatred.

People keep saying that the Occupy movement is all about fairness and "getting money out of politics."

Right.

That's why Occupy organizers built a 70-foot octopus monstrosity to attack "corporate greed" on Wall street. And the talking points attack the "tentacles" of Wall Street:

Foreign Funding of Canadian Environmental Groups

I have been certain that arab oil interests are funding the environmental groups which are hindering oil drilling in America. Now this has been confirmed. If this is going on in Canada, you can be sure its occurring here. Environmental extremists don't have that kind of money and power on their own.

OurDecision.ca documents puppetmasters behind anti-oilsands lobby

VANCOUVER – January 2, 2012 – Foreign special interests are paying millions of dollars to local front groups to sabotage Canada’s energy industry, according to an advertising campaign launched today.

“The federal government’s hearings into the Northern Gateway Pipeline begin next week,” says Kathryn Marshall, spokesman for EthicalOil.org. “Canadians will be shocked to learn that anti-oilsands lobby groups opposing the project have taken millions of dollars from foreign special interests.”

The ad campaign started this morning on more than a dozen radio stations across northern B.C., and will also appear in ten weekly newspapers over the month of January. Each ad in the series highlights a different Canadian front group being paid by a foreign special interest.

Couple Fired From Dubai Funded College in Britain for Being White Christians

The west must stop accepting money for institutions of higher learning from
these repulsive racist arab-muslim sheiks representing gulf kingdoms and emirates. These are not acts of generosity. Their purpose is to impose their vile and backward seventh century ideology they call a "religion" on western societies and to replace the host culture. Why do we continue to accept their blood money and compromise our own values and freedoms?

Principal and Wife Fired From College Promoting Multiculturalism For Being White and Christian
Arab and Muslim racism never gets noticed anywhere in the mainstream media, even though it is responsible for nothing less than a genocide in Sudan's Darfur region, where Arab Muslims massacred non-Arab black Muslims. Instead, it is only those who report on this story who will be called racist Islamophobic anti-Muslim bigots.

'We were sacked for being white and Christian', claim principal and his wife dismissed from Dubai-backed 'multicultural' college Daily Mail (hat tip Jack)

A principal and his wife have been sacked from a college whose stated aim is to promote multiculturalism because they are white Christians, they claim.

Professor Malory Nye, 47, says he was dismissed from the Al-Maktoum College of Higher Education in Dundee, Scotland, because his race and religion were seen by his superiors as a threat to its core Muslim values.

He says the college’s claims to pursuing multicultural values were a charade and that he was dismissed so he could be replaced by a Muslim.

His wife Isabel Campbell-Nye, 42, alleges she was forced from her position as head of the English language centre because she attracted too many students who were not Muslims or Arabs.
