Noble Americans called to Islam

Daydreaming of being the Islamic Billy Graham...
Ahmadinejad fulfills his Koranic duty, first to the American President and now to the Americans: Hey sign me up...not!

In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful.

O, Almighty God, bestow upon humanity the perfect human being promised to all by You, and make us among his followers.

Today, the path of return to faith and spirituality is open and unimpeded.

We should all heed the Divine Word of the Holy Qur'an:

"But those who repent, have faith and do good may receive Salvation. Your Lord, alone, creates and chooses as He will, and others have no part in His choice; Glorified is God and Exalted above any partners they ascribe to Him." (28:67-68)

And with that he is free to begin Islamic taxation or conquest. After all, it's in the Koran.

Nancy Pelosi Without a Clue on Iraq

PelosiSoon - to - be Speaker of the House and only - two - beats - away - from - the - White - House Nancy Pelosi is 'sad' that President Bush thinks al-Qaida is in Iraq.

The Raw Story

House Speaker-elect Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) told reporters on Wednesday that she feels it is "sad" that President Bush continues to blame Iraqi insurgent violence on al Qaeda.

"My thoughts on the president's representations are well-known," Pelosi said. "The 9/11 Commission dismissed that notion a long time ago and I feel sad that the president is resorting to it again."

The article goes on to state that Major General William Caldwell could not distinctly identify the percentage of al-Qaida in Iraq, giving the impression that his assessment was questionable. However, Major General Caldwell stated his opinion quite clearly.

"We don't see an organization out there that's looking to assume the control of this country, but rather just to create anarchy, to create death, to create destruction, and that's in fact what we're combatting right now," Caldwell said.

and ....

all the governmental functions are still functioning, and we don't see an organization out there that's trying to overthrow and assume control of the government, we don't see two viable entities out there like that, what we see is a(n) entity out there that's been duly elected, representative of the people, that's got plenty of challenges in trying to work through all their difficulties but moving forward nonetheless, and we see another entity that wants to do nothing but create division amongst the people, to create anarchy, to create casualties, to separate them," Caldwell said.

and ...

"What we do know is that al Qaeda in Iraq are the most well-funded, produce the most sensational attacks than any element out there. So that's where we put our predominant effort against."

That sounds like al-Qaida signatures to me. It also sounds like Major General Caldwell was very clear that al-Qaida is operating in Iraq.

But there we go with sound-bite politics again. People will read the headline and the sound-bite and that will be what is believed. At least that's what people like Pelosi hope.

Actually, the part about not attempting to obtain power, but creating chaos, division, anarchy, death and destruction sounds a lot like Ahmadinejad’s Apocalyptic Vision

Bottom line, this playing politics with the security of the nation is getting old and continues to be a very dangerous business.

Sniper One reminds us:

She’s also forgetting about the current leader of Al Qaeda in Iraq, Abu Hamza Al Muhajir, as featured in the sidebar of this blog. Why she would be living in denial of these facts is beyond me.

That reminds me .... remember this unpleasant fella? Yeah, he was in Iraq too. And American Soldiers were the last sight he saw on this earth.

Hot Air:
What a clueless gasbag. She supported Abscam pal Murtha over Hoyer. She almost put an impeached corruptocrat in charge of House Intel. And now she shows the world that she doesn’t know what the tainted 9-11 Commission did and did not study and report on. I had low expectations for Pelosi, yet I still find her dimwitted lurching from one idiotic scene to another surprising.

Wide Awake Cafe
Gee, thanks America, for voting in this ridiculous old woman as Speaker of the House. We need serious people in our halls of government in these dangerous times but Pelosi’s denial that al Qaeda is operating in Iraq is emblematic of what we can expect from this woman for the next two years.

The Religion Of Peace Greets The Pope

click for AP video.
A Muslim tried to kill the last Pope. Now the "Turkish Street" is after this one.

When a religious figure needs to have barracades along his route to protect him from the "religion of peace", well that's saying something! Too bad Jesus didn't have that protection.

Police monitored the highway leading to Ankara from the airport, where Turkish and Vatican flags waved in a light breeze. Snipers climbed atop buildings and hilltops. In wooded areas along the route, soldiers in camouflage fatigues set up observation points and sniffer dogs passed along bridges.

Benedict's journey is extraordinarily sensitive, a closely watched pilgrimage full of symbolism that could offer hope of religious reconciliation or deepen what many say is a growing divide between the Christian and Islamic worlds.

The outcome depends partly on the words and gestures of Benedict, who triggered an outcry in September when he quoted a 14th century Christian emperor who characterized the Prophet Muhammad's teachings as "evil and inhuman."

The Vatican said the speech was an attempt to highlight the incompatibility of faith and violence, and Benedict later expressed regret for the violent Muslim backlash.

In Ankara, a small protest was held before Benedict's arrival. "You're not welcome, Pope," read a banner.

It was his first visit to a Muslim country as pontiff. The original goal of the pope's trip to Turkey was to meet Bartholomew I, leader of the world's 300 million Orthodox Christians. The two major branches of Christianity represented by Bartholomew and Benedict split in 1054 over differences in opinion on the power of the papacy, and the two spiritual heads will meet in an attempt to breach the divide and reunite the churches.

Benedict leaves Ankara on Wednesday for Ephesus, where the Virgin Mary is thought to have spent her last years, and will then travel to Istanbul, a former Christian metropolis known as Constantinople until Ottoman Turks conquered it in 1453.

How can there be a bridge between the religions when one says Jesus was a "prophet of Islam" and the other says he was "the Son of God"? or when one is intolerant and the other is not? How on earth can one ever avoid "insulting Islam" while not being insulted by it?

Turkish Protests of Pope Visit

People wave Turkish flags during an anti-Pope rally organised by the Islam-based Welfare Party in Istanbul November 26, 2006. Pope Benedict XVI is expected to arrive in Turkey on Tuesday. (Pawel Kopczynski/Reuters)In the Summer of 1966, a round trip ticket, from Israel to Athens to Istanbul back to Israel cost $77.00 per person, so my girlfriend and I took a two-week Israeli vacation package during University recess. On the bus ride from the airport to Istanbul, the tour guide was asked how many Jews still lived in Turkey. He answered, "About 30,000; most of them in Istanbul". This presented an opportunity for a little humor from me as I also knew how many students there were in Istanbul University. I asked him, "By the way, how many students are enrolled at the University?" He replied, "Oh, also 30,000." I then said, "I guess we know how many Jews attend University." All the Israelis laughed while the guide looked rather non-plussed.

'Makings of bomb' found in airport car

Minneapolis seems to be a real "Mecca" for suspicious Islamic goings on. First somaili taxi drivers impose Sharia Law and elect themselves a congressman, then 6 imams eerily praise Allah publicly before a flight, and now bomb parts are found in an airport rent-a-car.

A bomb-like device was found in a rental car Sunday morning at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport, shutting down part of the Lindbergh terminal parking ramps for about two hours.

The Bloomington police bomb squad examined and blew up the device. FBI agents interviewed the man who rented the car after he arrived on the West Coast on Sunday. He said that the device was not a bomb and that he didn't mean to leave it behind, said Pat Hogan, airport spokesman.

Oh it wasn't a bomb and you didn't mean to leave it behind? Oh...alright then...our bad.

Can anyone say taqiyya?

Maliki feels Shiite fury over bomb slaughter

P.M. pelted and insulted...

THE motorcade of Iraq's Prime Minister, Nouri al-Maliki, was pelted with stones by fellow Shiites in a Baghdad slum when he paid his respects to the families of some of the 202 people killed there last week in the deadliest attacks since the US-led invasion.

The anger in Sadr City, stronghold of the Mahdi Army, a Shiite militia, boiled over on Sunday on the third day of a curfew imposed on the capital by Mr Maliki's US-backed national unity coalition as it scrambled desperately to stop popular passions exploding into all-out civil war between Shiites and the Sunni minority.

"It's all your fault," one man shouted as a crowd began to surge around Mr Maliki. Men jeered as his armoured convoy edged through the throng, away from a mourning ceremony for one of the victims of Thursday's multiple car bomb attacks.

Reprisals against Sunni mosques and homes, and three days of sporadic mortar fire in city neighbourhoods, kept Baghdad's 7 million people at home, fearful of what might come when a traffic ban ended yesterday.

I guess you gotta blame someone. Apparently Bush and Maliki are cut from the same cloth. It seems both are getting the brunt of extremist's bad behavior.

Islamists dominate Bahrain elections

Sheik Ali Salman
Islamists get out the vote!

MANAMA, Bahrain - Islamist candidates swept to victory in Bahrain's parliamentary election, splitting the vote between hardline Shiite and Sunni Muslims while female and liberal candidates fared poorly in the U.S.-allied kingdom, preliminary results showed Sunday.

With several races headed for runoffs, Saturday's vote appeared to reinforce the sectarian divide between the Persian Gulf island's governing Sunni minority and the underprivileged Shiites who make up two-thirds of its 700,000 people.

The results also underlined a deepening social and religious conservatism in Bahrain, which has been among the most liberal of Arab states in the region and is host to the U.S. Navy's Fifth Fleet.

"The people trusted us and we did well," said al-Wefaq leader Sheik Ali Salman, a Shiite cleric in a rolled white turban and black cloak.

Democracy? A step forward in the middle-east? Or the same stuff demoractized? Why ask why?

Al-Sadr loyalists take over Iraqi television station

Sadr City TV! Probably not as funny as Second City TV but...

BAGHDAD - Followers of the militant Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr took over state-run television Saturday to denounce the Iraqi government, label Sunnis "terrorists" and issue what appeared to many viewers as a call to arms.

The two-hour broadcast from a community gathering in the heart of the Shiite militia stronghold of Sadr City included three members of al-Sadr's parliamentary bloc, who took questions from outraged residents demanding revenge for a series of car bombings that killed some 200 people Thursday.

With Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki relegated to the sidelines, brazen Sunni-Shiite attacks continue unchecked despite a 24-hour curfew over Baghdad. Al-Sadr's Mahdi Army militia now controls wide swaths of the capital, his politicians are the backbone of the Cabinet, and his followers deeply entrenched in the Iraqi security forces. Sectarian violence has spun so rapidly out of control since the Sadr City blasts, however, that it's not clear whether even al-Sadr has the authority - or the will - to stop the cycle of bloodshed.

"This is live and, God willing, everyone will hear me: We are not interested in sidewalks, water services or anything else. We want safety," an unidentified Sadr City resident said as the televised crowd cheered. "We want the officials. They say there is no sectarian war. No, it is sectarian war, and that's the truth."

Al-Maliki's administration acknowledged it was powerless to interrupt the pro-Sadr program on the official Iraqiya channel, during which Sadr City residents shouted, "There is no government! There is no state!" Several speakers described neighborhoods and well-known Sunni politicians as "terrorists" and threatened them with reprisal.

"We'll obviously try to control them as much as we can, but when they (kill) more than 150 people in bombings, they have the right to speak," said Bassam al Husseini, one of Maliki's top advisers. "What are we going to do? We can't stop this. It's too hot right now."

Sounds promising doesn't it. Newsweek has a good article titled"The Sword of the Shia" which gives some insight about Moqtada al-Sadr:

One way to understand Moqtada al-Sadr is to think of him as a young Mafia don. He aims for respectability, and is willing to kill for it. Yet the extent of his power isn't obvious to the untrained eye. He has no standing army or police force, and the Mahdi Army gunmen he employs have no tanks or aircraft. You could mistake him—at your peril—for a common thug or gang leader. And if he or his people were to kill you for your ignorance, he wouldn't claim credit. But the message would be clear to those who understand the brutal language of the Iraqi Street.

American soldiers who patrol Sadr's turf in Baghdad understand. They can spot his men. "They look like they're pulling security," says First Lt. Robert Hartley, a 25-year-old who plays cat and mouse with the Mahdi Army in the Iraqi capital. The Sadrists use children and young men as lookouts. When GIs get out of their Humvees to patrol on foot, one of the watchers will fly a kite, or release a flock of pigeons. Some of Sadr's people have even infiltrated top ranks of the Iraqi police. Capt. Tom Kapla, 29, says he knows who they are: "They look at you, and you can tell they want to kill you."

This is where we find ourselves? As the -so far- one commentor on the Newsweek article points out, Al-Sadr was a nobody before the US invaded Iraq. Now that he is somebody he has to be dealt with. Where are the Russians when you need them? Perhaps we should convince THEM to stop killing their own and go after the REAL dangers of the world.

You are more likely to see that scenario played out on Mad TV and not in Moscow or Baghdad.

Hezbollah Is Ready

It was never a secret that Syria and Iran have been helping Hezbollah replenish its weapons stock. What is surprising is how successful they have been. Time Magazine reports that Hezbollah has re-supplied to the extent that their short range missile supply is currently at pre-war levels of approximately 20,000 units. This disputes earlier Israeli and Saudi intelligence reports that Hezbollah has replenished only half its supply. Time's diplomatic source says, "The Iranian pipeline through Syria was already working during the war, despite constant Israeli bombing raids on the roads into Lebanon from Syria."

Syria and Iran have denied any involvement. When Hezbollah was asked whether they have received new weapons they replied;

"We have more than enough weapons if Israel tries to attack us again."

As if Israel attacked the first time.

More from Time:

Over the past three months, according to a knowledgeable Saudi source, Iranian Revolutionary Guard officers have been operating out of a military base on the outskirts of Damascus. The Iranian government has dispatched shipments of small arms and what appear to be missile components to this military base, according to the source. From the secret base, weapons have been shipped by truck across the border into Lebanon. Western diplomats say that the Lebanese army has posted over 8,000 troops along the border, forcing smugglers to use mountain passes instead of the heavily-monitored crossing on the main Beirut-Damascus road.

Nawaf Obaid, a Saudi security advisor who is managing director of the Riyadh-based Saudi National Security Assessment Project claims that Iran is using its embassies in Damascus and Beirut as command centers, and are working closely along side Hezbollah representatives in the Beirut embassy.

None of this should come as any surprise. It was clear from day one that weapons were being transferred from Iran. What is worrisome is the level of complicity. Hezbollah is sheltering itself under Iran's diplomatic immunity. What is worrisome is the lack of interest shown by the UN and the West. The French forces in UNIFIL have threatened to shoot down Israeli reconnaissance planes for violating Resolution 1701, yet they have done absolutely nothing to stop Hezbollah from rearming. In fact, they are indirectly helping. By removing Israel from the picture, they have assured that Hezbollah will be left on its own to do as it pleases. This inaction is only setting the stage for Round Two.

Alexander Litvinenko Dies of Tiny Nuclear Bomb

What difference does it make to us if the Russians murdered a former KGB spy and defector? Should it really matter to us at all? Most of us never heard of Alexander Litvinenko prior to a couple of weeks ago.

A lot has been written on blogs about him in the last week or so and nobody needs me to repeat it all here.

There are ripples to this murder that are, or should be, felt around the world. One is that Russia is once again thumbing it's nose at the world. That's nothing new. To the best of my knowledge, there hasn't been a time when Russia gave a moments consideration to what the rest of the world thinks/thought. Why should they? They have their own problems to worry about and WHAT would or could anyone do about Russia?

Napolean and Hitler both met defeat trying to invade Russia. Their only real threat is if the U.S. were willing to go head-to-head with them. They have reason to be increasing secure in the notion that we have been greatly weakened and don't have the will to hold them at bay.

Our infrequent, distrustful and uneasy alliances with Russia have been in order to defeat a common enemy. Otherwise, we have watched Russia with a wary eye as I suppose, they have watched us.

Another ripple is that they are shutting down dissidence. It has been well documented that Litvinenko has been speaking out against the regime of Putin. He was stopped. Why did he need to be stopped? What else is going on?

As much as the dems like to screech at the tops of their voices how they are being silenced in their criticism of the Bush administration, not one of them have been killed for doing so.

Litvinenko died of nuclear radiation. His death bed claim is that he was poisoned at Putin's order. He was murdered with polonium 210, an element used in triggering nuclear weapons. This is such a powerful substance, that following his death in London, the British have found radiation in the places Litvinenko visited in the days following his poisoning. Which brings another ripple, will others die of radiation poisoning after contact with Litvinenko?

This also has resulted in a tense diplomatic problem between Britian and Russia.
Detectives and scientists expressed open astonishment that such an elaborate and evil Cold War-style hit could happen Britain, describing the murder as ‘unprecedented’ and ‘mind-boggling’.

It threatened to cause a serious diplomatic rift between Britain and Russia, at a time when relations are at their worst since the end of the Cold War

Litvinenko's father, in his grief, expressed what was one of my first concerns about another ripple in this story. They killed him with at tiny nuke - and they have big nukes.

"My son died yesterday and he was killed by a little tiny nuclear bomb.

It was so small that you could not see it. But the people who killed him have big nuclear bombs and missiles and those people should not be trusted.


This regime is a mortal danger to the world.

Which brings us to a very alarming ripple.

Russia delivers air defense missile system to Iran. Russia claims this is a legitimate sale. Just as Iran claims their development of nuclear capablilty is benign. Neither can be trusted and both are not our friends.

Litvinenko tells us in his final message.

But as I lie here I can distinctly hear the beating of wings of the angel of death. I may be able to give him the slip but I have to say my legs do not run as fast as I would like.

I think, therefore, that this may be the time to say one or two things to the person responsible for my present condition.

You may succeed in silencing me but that silence comes at a price. You have shown yourself to be barbaric and ruthless as your most hostile critics have claimed.

You have shown yourself to have no respect for life, liberty or any civilised value. You have shown yourself to be unworthy of your office, to be unworthy of the trust of civilised men and women.

You may succeed in silencing one man but the howl of protest from around the world will reverberate, Mr Putin, in your ears for the rest of your life.

May God forgive you for what you have done, not only to me but to beloved Russia and its people."

It seems to me that the death of a former KGB spy and defector does matter to us. It should matter a great deal. We need to wake up and hear what is happening around us.

Insurgents gun down 21 in Iraqi village

We're only trying to help.

More Iraqi on Iraqi death...

BAGHDAD - Gunmen broke into two Shiite homes and killed 21 men in front of their relatives, police said Saturday, as Vice President Dick Cheney sought Saudi Arabia's help in calming Iraq after an especially violent week.

The capital remained under a 24-hour curfew two days after suspected Sunni insurgents killed 215 people in Baghdad's main Shiite district with a combination of bombs and mortars.

Another 87 people were killed or found dead in sectarian violence across Iraq Friday.

Be aware how our mainstream news outlets are going to be following middle-east diplomacy on this war. As we ask more and more countries to help "problem solve" the shiites and the Sunni's will continue to kill each other for their own revenge. Did we overestimate the minds of the people we were there to liberate from Hussein? I'm beginning to think so.

Meanwhile our complicity in a civil war comes to the fore with Al-Sadr claiming we are fighting for the Sunni's.

BAGHDAD - An aide to radical Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr has accused US troops of aligning themselves with Sunni Arab rebels to attack Iraq's majority community.

"It is clear that there is a collaboration between US forces and Baathists. There is evidence of that," said Sahib al-Amiri Saturday, secretary general of the Martyrs of Allah, a Shiite religious body linked to Sadr's movement.

Yes that's their way of saying, "Thanks for the help, ya'll."

Champion Of Terrorist Rights

In a shocking interview with the Jerusalem Post, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour implies that Israel is more culpable than Hezbollah for civilian deaths during the Lebanon war. This despite the fact that Hezbollah intentionally targeted civilians while Israel did not. This despite the fact that Hezbollah used human shields while Israel did not. Asked by the Post if there was a distinction under human rights law between missile attacks aimed at killing civilians and military strikes in which civilians are unintentionally killed, Arbour said the two could not be equated.

"In one case you could have, for instance, a very objectionable intent - the intent to harm civilians, which is very bad - but effectively not a lot of harm is actually achieved. But how can you compare that with a case where you may not have an intent but you have recklessness [in which] civilian casualties are foreseeable? The culpability or the intent may not sound as severe, but the actual harm is catastrophic."

"According to criminal law, there is very little distinction between recklessness and intent. It is a small distinction as to whether you desire the result, or you foresee it as virtually certain and you do not care. In terms of culpability there is not a lot of difference between recklessness and intent."

"When you kill civilians virtually each time [in a military attack], at some point you have to ask yourself, 'Wasn't that foreseeable that so many would be killed?" she said. "That is where I think you start having to engage in the possibility that it is somewhat culpable."

I can only imagine that the murderers in Beirut, Damascus and Teheran are laughing themselves to pieces. The UN has laid down its mandate. Terror is not so bad simply because the results are not so impressive. Forget the intent. The results are what matters.

She claims that accidental deaths caused by Israel are more criminal that the intentional deaths caused by Hezbollah.

By the way, I am shocked that an individual who is so well versed in law can actually claim that in criminal law there is little distinction between recklessness and intent. I guess that she cannot differentiate between manslaughter and murder. I guess she will blame her son for accidentally breaking a window in her house with a baseball more than she will blame him for intentionally breaking it with a hammer. Why? Because the baseball is "foreseeable"; it has happened before.

Interesting to note the very different approach Arbour took when she was acting as the Chief Prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunal. The ITC was charged to investigate alleged war crimes perpetrated by Yugoslavia and Slobodan Milosevic. At that time, Arbour, on behalf of the ITC, formally announced that there was no basis for war crimes charges to be brought against NATO for its 78 day bombing campaign in Yugoslavia in which 500 civilians were killed and civilian infrastructure was targeted. The exoneration of NATO while Germany and Russia were working towards a diplomatic solution, combined with the announcement of Milosevic's indictment effectively gave NATO a green light to continue the bombing. The message was clear. NATO was innocent, Yugoslavia and Milosevic were not.

When Arbour was asked whether she understood the ramifications of both her exoneration of NATO and the indictment of Milosevic would have on the peace process, she answered as follows;

"I am mindful of the impact that this indictment may have on the peace process," and although indicted individuals are "entitled to the presumption of innocence until they are convicted, the evidence upon which this indictment was confirmed raises serious questions about their suitability to be guarantors of any deal, let alone a peace agreement."

Highly prejudicial. A peace deal would not happen because you just can't trust Slobo, even before was convicted. Let the bombing continue.

Then US Secretary of State Madeleine Albright came to the same conclusion and noted that the indictments

"Make very clear to the world and the publics in our countries that this [NATO policy] is justified because of the crimes committed, and I think also will enable us to keep moving all these processes [i.e. ., bombing] forward".

Arbour had given her official approval to let NATO continue the bombing which was killing civilians and destroying civilian infrastructure.

If Arbour held herself to the same standards she holds the Israelis, she would most likely have herself fitted for an orange jumpsuit.

In her never ending quest to vilify Israel, Arbour knows no boundaries. She visits the relatives of dead terrorists while refusing to meet the relatives of kidnapped Israelis. She is willing to hang the victims and exonerate the criminals. Louise Arbour is truly a shining star of the UN.

Following US, Israel means worshipping idols: Cleric says

Direct from a cube worshippers mouth...

Iran's Supreme Leader's envoy in Hajj and head of Iranian pilgrims to the house of God Ayatollah Mohammad Mohammadi Reyshahri here on Friday said that following the US and Zionist regime is an idol-worshipping practice.

Reyshahri said that Israel is "idol" and the US is the "big idol".

Giving his pre-sermon address in this week's Friday prayers congregation, Reyshahri highlighted importance of the "Disavowal of Pagans" ceremony and said it is one of the main duties of pilgrims during the Hajj congregation.

Reyshahri said `Disavowal of Pagans' ceremony is of significance because on the occasion, Iran raises its voice and stances and the "wise" slogans, chanted in the process, are influential in mobilizing the world.

He said if Muslim nations and governments get united, they will be able to do huge jobs but ignorance of the point would end up in the domineering powers and enemies of Islam taking the initiative and deciding fate of Muslims.

"All Hajj activists and pilgrims should know that there are certain hands at work, trying to divide Shiites and Sunnies," the official added.

Referring to the financial and spiritual benefits of Hajj, eyshahri said, Hajj can guarantee survival of the Islamic communities and resolve their political, economic and cultural problems.

In conclusion, he noted that Hajj will bring about vigilance among the Islamic nations, because the ceremony will bring together Muslims from around the world.

He added that they should try to defend Muslims and their interests.

Somehow following a couple of "regimes" is, in my view, not nearly as much a form of idolatry as circling a black box claimed to be the "House Of God" during Hajj. But who am I...I'm a worshipper of the cross.

Fatma Omar An-Najar-rests in pieces.
Another wasted Arab life...

64-year-old female suicide bomber attacks Israeli troops in Gaza

JEBALIYA, Gaza Strip (AP) — A 64-year-old Palestinian grandmother blew herself up near Israeli troops sweeping through northern Gaza on Thursday, wounding two soldiers, and eight other Palestinians were killed in a day of clashes and rocket fire.

The militant group Hamas, which is in charge of the Palestinian government, claimed responsibility for the suicide attack and identified the bomber as Fatma Omar An-Najar. Her relatives said she was 64 — by far the oldest of the more than 100 Palestinian suicide bombers who have targeted Israelis over the past six years.

Hey! My granny was kinda crazy but not suicide crazy. Lord have mercy.

One of Fatma's 40 grandchildren at her funeral.

She was her own worst victim. Or maybe not...

How crazy is YOUR Grandma? has the reading of the will.

Israel ponders Gaza escalation

Escalate? Why escalate?
Hard choices in Israel- is it all out or hold out?

JERUSALEM-- Israel's Political-Security Cabinet instructed the military to present plans for, "a more extensive operation" in the Gaza Strip to stop rocket attacks and arms smuggling.

The order was issued as more Palestinian Qassam rockets were fired on the town of Sderot, near the Gaza Strip. The army spokesman reckoned that this month Palestinians fired 157 rockets of which 91 made it to the border. Two Israelis were killed in Sderot in the past week.

During the recent Lebanon War, Hezbollah fired some 4,000 short-range rockets that led an estimated 350,000 Israelis to leave their homes. The Israeli military failed to stop those attacks and realized the rockets have become a strategic weapon.

The Israelis remember all too well that their failure to stop Hezbollah's buildup in southern Lebanon led suddenly made them face thousands of rockets and well-entrenched fortified bunkers. They do not want a repetition in Gaza.

Israel may be begining to understand what we now are tossing around politically. We should have gone into Iraq with full force and manpower. Although it is funny in a way to hear democrats declare that with 20/20 hindsight but there is truth in it. War is not a half-hearted venture. You win or you lose but you do not "problem solve" your way out (per Nancy Pelosi). Pulling out in Iraq will be percieved as a victory for the terrorists...and holding out in Gaza will only embolden more attacks in Israel.

No Investigative Reporting on Imams

Our newest guest writer, Miss Kelly is covering the Boston case of two Imams charged with fraudlent religious visas after an eight state immigration sweep.

Her article on the minimal coverage by the Boston Globe is not suprising given our nation's trend toward dhimmitude.

Brief recap of local media coverage of the two Boston imams who were arrested last week, Muhammed Masood and Hafiz Abdul Hannan. The two men were arrested on charges of religious visa fraud and are out on bail. I wrote about the case - and the involvement of the Boston branch of the Muslim American Society (MAS) - here, here and here. The local coverage was not exactly insightful.

New England Cable Network (NECN) reports that the "their (the imams) supporters rallied in Boston today accusing the government of arresting the men simply because they're Muslims." Does the reporter think that the Federal Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency is really doing that? How about questioning this?

On the NECN video, Jerry Friedman, attorney for Hannan says in the video: "I don't see them arresting clerics from other religions ." Really? Then you're not looking, Mr. Friedman. Read the ICE press release from November 1, 2006 about the Christian South Korean pastor in Tacoma Washington charged with visa fraud and witness tampering. "Park was found guilty by a judge in June of filing fraudulent visa applications for foreign nationals he claimed were coming to the United States to serve as religious workers at the Hope Korean Church where he served as pastor." Friedman and the MAS can make false, baseless accusations about only Muslims being targeted, and no reporter questions that nonsense.

The Boston Globe article today underplays the extent of the Muhammed Khalil fraud case, which is critical to this case. There are connections between the two Boston imams and Muhammed Khlalil of Brooklyn, who's doing time right now. The Globe reports simply that Khalil was "convicted in 2004 of conspiracy and visa fraud for collecting cash payments of $6,000 in return for falsely stating that immigrants were religious leaders who would work for his mosque." Well, there's quite a bit more to it than that. Khalil actually netted over $600,000 running his personal religious immigration scheme and he brought in some 200 people, who then brought in their family members. This was a massive visa fraud scheme. According to the ICE, "Khalil issued bogus paychecks to the applicants and required them to return the money to him in cash. He then filed tax returns for the mosque and required the applicants to file personal tax returns stating that they were employed as religious workers at the mosque. This allowed him to portray the mosque as a large-scale entity with a growing congregation. He was also convicted of making false statements to ICE agents investigating the matter and conspiring to obtain false Social Security cards." This is not a "minor technicality."

Imam Masood was one of 33 arrested in an eight-state sweep.

More from the Globe article: Hassan's lawyer Friedman "said in court and in a later interview that Hassan did get assistance from Khalil. But he also said Hassan complied with federal law and worked as a religious leader at Khalil's Brooklyn mosque for three years." Oh, well, then everything is just fine! Excuse me, I don't get all warm and fuzzy about Mr. Hassan working for this guy for three years. Khlalil was running his massive visa fraud at the time.

The Boston Herald article incorrectly states that "100 Muslim, Christian and Jewish leaders rallied outside a federal courthouse to support the clerics." Only a few were religious leaders, most people were regular folks, including quite a number of young people. In a rather grandiose statement, Imam Abdullah T. Faaruq of the Mosque for Praising of Allah in Roxbury claimed "Our nation is being judged by this one case.”

If I can find this information in a short time of searching the internet, why can't the Globe, Herald and NECN reporters? Stay tuned, this case will continue and (I imagine) go to trial.

Thank you, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, for your continuing work protect our nation's borders and security. Thank you, Paula Grenier and Richard D. Neville. I'm glad you guys are on the job.

Indeed reason for thanksgiving.

Miss Kelly also gives us the heads up on a petition to support the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement. Please visit and show your support.

It's a CIVIL WAR and I say Let Them Fight.

Curfew imposed-click for video
When the people of a country split into two different factions and begin fighting over their opposing views, it's called a civil war. Various politicians and "spin doctors" (professional liars) have been consistently denying that Iraq is engaged in a civil war. Instead they call it an "insurgency", whatever the hell that is, and by using that word, imply that the combatants are not native Iraqis.

Well then, what do you call THIS? [**UPDATED**-Joe S.] or THIS?

"BAGHDAD - It was terror Thursday in Baghdad as suicide car bombs and mortar attacks shook the very foundations of Sadr City killing at least 144 people and leaving more than 230 injured, police confirmed.

The Shia-run health ministry was an easy target as insurgents aimed rocket propelled grenades and machine guns. Only the intervention of US helicopters and ground forces prevented this attack from escalating sharply. Around were wounded in the Health ministry attack.

This attack was apparently the cue as well-coordinated suicide bombers and mortars struck at various places at 3pm (12pm GMT) in the Iraqi capital. The first attack took place in a vegetable market in Sadr City.

There was chaos in the street as Shia residents began hurling abuses and started attacking Sunnis. Sadr City, which has been targeted in recent months, is the stronghold of Shia cleric and militia leader Moqtada al-Sadr." (Note that muslim preachers are also generals.)

Scan back up to the underlined part about intervening US forces.

Let this sink in. Our troops are taking sides in a civil war.

We are attacking the Sunnis that are attacking the Shiites. Specifically the Shiite terrorists of that insane extremist, Moqtada al-Sadr, who has been directly responsible for the deaths of a lot of our boys.

Yes, I know, the idea is to stop both sides from fighting and give the government a chance to take control. The same government that is now embracing Syria, which is mostly Sunni. No doubt a deal is being made for the Syrians to control the Iraqi Sunnis. In exchange for what? One thing is for sure, all the blood our people are spilling over there will not be repaid with an Iraq democracy.

It's pretty clear now what our government hopes to achieve there and why we're not squawking about Syrias involvement. The Sunni minority in Iraq used to rule with Saddam. Now the majority Shiites are in power and want to "cleanse" the Sunnis, the "insurgents" who are fighting back. So if the Syrians can control the Sunnis by guaranteeing them a fair share of government and if al Sadr can then be brought into the fold, since all he's killing people for is to gain power for himself anyway, a sort of peace can be reached. We're trying to keep things from completely exploding until the Arabs, in their own slow, self-serving, brick-headed way, hopefully finally manage to reach an agreement that will satisfy them all and allow us to leave.

The problem is there's no guarantee on this and we aren't dealing with very sane people. They aren't reasonable and not one will give up his greed for power for the sake of his country. None of them are patriotic. Islam doesn't allow patriotism.

An Iraqi mourns the death of his relatives.
The only possible outcome of this is the only one there ever was to begin with. Once Saddams iron grip was gone, the grab for power began. It will continue until the area is either consolidated by a new dictator or divided up by various war lords. Our presence there may help shape the outcome but it will not fully determine it, and the terrible price in lives and cash that we're paying for it isn't worth the oil.

We should withdraw to our bases there and let the Arabs sort it out, because that's what they've made plenty clear to us they're insisting on doing anyway. Afterward we'll be there to keep them in check. Makes sense to me.

Man tried to eat swan during Ramadan fast

You could call this a "hunger" strike!

London - A Muslim man slaughtered a wild swan and tried to eat it because he was hungry during the fasting festival of Ramadan, a court heard.

Shamshu Miah stabbed the bird and bit its neck at a boating lake in a popular tourist resort.

Police found the 52-year-old with blood on his clothes and feathers in his beard when they were called to the West Shore boating pool in the seaside town of Llandudno, North Wales.

One of the officers told Miah it was illegal to kill a swan because it was the property of the Queen, to which Miah replied: "I hate the Queen, I hate this country."

Oopsie! Shame on Shamshu. What a turkey!

Happy Thanksgiving, BTW!

Hamas: Jews must evacuate

Lobbing bombs and making demands...

The only way to stop the regular rocket fire on Sderot, an Israeli city of about 20,000 nearly three miles from the Gaza Strip border, is for the Jewish state to evacuate the entire city, Hamas announced in a statement Wednesday.

"Only the departure of residents from Sderot will stop the rocket fire," Abu Abaida, spokesman for Hamas' so-called military wing, said in a statement to reporters.

"There are no limits on our rocket attacks and we will prove that in coming days. We advise residents of Sderot to evacuate," the Hamas spokesman said.

Asked by WND if his statement was rhetoric or whether the Hamas leadership actually sanctioned a call for Israeli residents to evacuate, Abu Abaida replied, "We are very, very serious. The evacuation can be done in the next days or even up to several weeks, but it must be done. And after that, we will stop all rocket fire unless the Zionists continue more military operations in Gaza".

Abu Abaida said Hamas is seeking to impose "a new equation in which the Zionists understand that for every incursion into Gaza, we will use our rockets to bombard your towns and cities until more and more are forced to evacuate. Our rockets have already improved, as Sderot residents know. We keep working on (the rockets) to improve deadliness, force and distance."

Indeed, Israeli security sources said Palestinian rockets fired in recent weeks at Sderot have been packed with more explosive material than ever before.

I'm not so sure that threatening Israel is such a good idea. It used to not be good but the current leadership doesn't seem to have the chutzpah to move on these radicals that their predecessors did. Not acting creates as much problems acting. and we all know we cannot count on the World Community/UN for any acceptable action on Hamas' actions.

Praying On Planes

The result of 19 Muslims praying --or should I say preying-- on planes.
Six Imam's stand and pray on a plane in Minneapolis only to be removed and questioned. Word is that their civil rights were violated. What about the rights of the other passengers to not feel threatened?

According to Allahpundit at, "CAIR’s promising a formal complaint in the morning to protest law enforcement’s inexplicable suspicions about a group of men onboard a commercial flight rising out of their seats in tandem and praying to Allah."

A commentor at Hotair put it well...

If I was on that plane and a group started chanting to Allah, it would be the white-knuckled flight from hell.

I'm all for prayer but on a plane a quiet "Hail Mary" or a private "OM" is quite enough. Heck I'll even go along with "Allah Akbar" as long as I don't have to SEE OR HEAR it.

Douglas Hagmann of the Northeast Intelligence Network links it to a larger Islamic Ideological Jihad already being waged.

Whatever it is lets hope Muslim civil rights protests...shall we call them "stand ups" rather than "sit ins"... don't shut down the airline industry over the holiday. My personal thoughts? Shut it down because I remember the "magnificent 19"...these Muslims who are enjoying the freedoms of our society probably remember them too--in the worst way, I presume.

Al-Qaeda: Kill the Christians

Killing the Pope is halal!
This must be Al Qaeda's version of the "Army of One"... the "Jihad of One". I know that if I look hard enough, tap my heels and repeat "the religion of peace" three times, I'll find "Tolerance" and "Diversity" in there somewhere. Ah yes.... scroll down to the part about poisonous snakes in our cars..... while Democrats thought the snakes were all Republicans.

Al-Qaeda: Kill the Christians
By Patrick Poole | November 17, 2006

"An al-Qaeda manual made a surprise reappearance on October 31st in a new repackaged, reformatted edition on an online jihadi forum associated with the terrorist organization. The manual, A Guide for the Undecided on the Legitimacy of Killing Christians, (Irshad al-Hayara fi Ibahat Dimaa al-Nasara) made its first appearance back in September 2002, published by the al-Qaeda “think tank,” the now defunct Center for Islamic Research and Study, in their bi-weekly magazine, Sawt al-Jihad (The Voice of Jihad). Translated excerpts from the 56-page manual, authored by Hafid Abu-Basir, are available from the Site Institute"The republication of this manual follows just weeks after an al-Qaeda-linked website released a manual by Egyptian Mohammed Khalil Al-Hakaymah, How to Fight Alone, a how-to guide for Muslims to conduct their own “Jihad of One” against the “Crusader-Zionists.” A brief analysis of al-Hakaymah’s manual by Geostrategy describes his instructions on how lone Muslims can take the battle to the infidels:"

The recommended methods include stabbing, feeding overdoses of cocaine or heroin, injecting air via needles, assassination with guns, burning down homes, putting poisonous snakes in cars, tampering with car brakes, planting explosives in vehicles, running over people, and luring people and then killing them. The book also highly recommends poisoning targets and includes various methods of preparing and obtaining lethal toxins, including botulism. The book also gives instructions on making improvised explosives.... Read entire article here.

Welcome To McDhimmies

Local Mickey D's forces Aussies to go halal.

Melbourne, Australia--McDONALD'S latest bid to attract more customers -- Muslim fast-food lovers -- has caused uproar among customers.

The fast-food chain has introduced halal products at two Melbourne restaurants, significantly boosting sales.

However some non-Muslim customers are furious they were not told their hamburger meat was slaughtered and blessed in accordance with Islamic rules laid down in the Koran.

McDonald's consulted Muslim leaders before introducing halal products at its Brunswick East and St Albans stores.

Halal meat is from animals that have been killed facing Mecca and blessed using the name of Allah.

Brunswick East store assistant manager Nicholas Yacoub said the move had attracted a surge of new customers.

"It has pretty much doubled our sales," Mr Yacoub said.

The store does not tell drive-through customers about the change and has only one small sign inside advertising the move.

Coburg resident Miriam McLennan was stunned to discover the hamburger she bought from the Brunswick East store was blessed.

"Just as a Muslim would not want to eat anything that isn't halal . . . I should have my rights to eat normal, ordinary food that hasn't been blessed," she said.

A Catholic Church spokesman said non-Muslims deserved to know if the food was halal before buying. But he said there was no biblical reason for Christians to avoid halal food.

A McDonald's spokeswoman said customers who did not want halal food should buy from any of its other stores.

No doubt already in Dearbornistan and coming to your town soon...

As for the "biblical reason" to avoid halal food? I'll stick with NOT eating foods offered to idols and false gods...Daniel made out ok that way.

Hat tip to The Religion Of Peace.

Blair: Moderate policies defeat terror

Allah Akbar, bloody bugger!
Blair: Let's change our strategy--and blame Israel too...

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan — British Prime Minister Tony Blair acknowledged Sunday the West had changed strategy in the fight against terrorism, telling Pakistan's president that brokering a broad Mideast peace deal was now as crucial as using force to battle militants.

Pakistani leader Gen. Pervez Musharraf, who switched his country's support from the Taliban in Afghanistan to the U.S. following the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, said "the knot of terrorism will be untied through first resolving the Palestinian dispute."

Musharraf also acknowledged that his government's efforts to cut off support for the Taliban in northwestern Pakistan had not achieved "100 percent success." Pakistan has come under increasing pressure to crack down on Taliban and al-Qaida militants operating along its border with Afghanistan, where Osama bin Laden believed to be hiding.

"The Taliban problem is an Afghan problem ... being supported by elements from this side," Musharraf said. "We need to put our house in order on our side."

"We begin to win when we start fighting properly and I think we are now fighting properly _ but we have got to do more," Blair said after the talks with Musharraf in the eastern city of Lahore. "Where there are people standing up for a different way forward, we have to back them."

Blair said bringing peace to Israel and the Palestinian territories would help. "This global extremism is an ideology that exploits grievances. So what we have to do is at the same time as we are taking on the ideology, we have to take away those elements of grievance," he said.

"This took a generation to grow and it will take a generation to defeat," he said after signing an agreement announced Saturday to double to $910 million package of aid to fund moderate Islamic schools and other projects in Pakistan.

Help me out here...I fail to see how the "Taliban" problem and the "Palestinian" problem are linked. How is blaming Israel and throwing money at the Pakistani Muslims going to change the twisted ideology which already exists worldwide? If anything at all, they have just pulled another taqiyya over the infidel's eyes again.

**Update** --removing the elements of grievence--"Maybe Israel should just GO AWAY..." says Mohammed of the Islamic Thinkers Society.

Would resolving Palestinian grievances resolve Global Terrorism? See the Yahoo Answers...

Dutch to ban wearing of Muslim burqa in public

No "submission" for the Dutch.

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - The Dutch government agreed on Friday a total ban on the wearing of burqas and other Muslim face veils in public, justifying the move on security grounds.

Immigration Minister Rita Verdonk will now draw up legislation which will result in the Netherlands, once one of Europe's most easy-going nations, imposing some of the continent's toughest laws against concealing the face.

"The cabinet finds it undesirable that garments covering the face -- including the burqa -- should be worn in public in view of public order, (and) the security and protection of fellow citizens," the Dutch Justice Ministry said in a statement.

The Netherlands would be the first European state to impose a countrywide ban on Islamic face coverings, though other countries have already outlawed them in specific places.

I can hear the outcry now about religious freedoms being legislated away. However the article states that the Netherlands already has laws limiting where a face covering can be worn, as well as France and Italy.

I question why those muslims who feel thier rights are infringed don't see that it is their own extremists who are causing all of this. Here in America the ACLU is uptight at Wal-Mart simply saying "Merry Christmas". They can't pray in schools, carry a bible and in some cases even talk about Jesus or wear a piece of Christian jewelry. Do you see Christians burning flags or threatening "infidels" en masse?

Since the murder of anti-immigration maverick Pim Fortuyn in 2002, the Dutch have lost a reputation for tolerance, pushing through some of Europe's toughest entry and integration laws.

Social and religious tensions have escalated in the last few years, exacerbated by the murder of film director and Islam critic Theo van Gogh by a Dutch-Moroccan militant in 2004.

Why is the burqa a big deal? Because those who most openly represent the ones wearing it give the world every reason to be suspect...

Americans seized in Iraq after convoy hijack

Former Iraq Prime Minister Blames America!...of course.Daylight Mayhem In Iraq.

From an article By Aref Mohammed:

SAFWAN, Iraq (Reuters) - British and U.S. forces mounted raids in southern Iraq on Friday in the hunt for four Americans and an Austrian kidnapped when the civilian convoy they were guarding was hijacked, Iraqi security sources said.

British troops cordoned off an area of the city of Basra on Friday in what the Iraqi sources told Reuters was a raid based on suspicion the five missing men were held there. A spokesman for the British forces policing the region declined all comment.
From the nearby town of Zubayr, a policeman said U.S. troops had raided the police station there, apparently seeking the hostages. British and U.S. officials have often accused police of working in league with militants hostile to foreign forces.

Police in the border town of Safwan, 60 km (40 miles) south of Basra, showed reporters an armored four-wheel drive vehicle they said the foreigners were driving in when the truck convoy was brought to a halt by gunmen on Thursday after crossing the border from Kuwait on its way to the city of Nassiriya.

Nine Iraqis were also abducted by the gunmen but at least some had already been released, a security source said. Their Kuwaiti employer said only the foreigners were still missing.

A representative of the Crescent Security Group in Kuwait said: "We don't know exactly what happened." The incident had occurred around noon, between Safwan and Zubayr.

Do you think that the daylight raids and activities, along with the implication of so-called allies, shows an emboldened new enemy since the elections?

The incident comes at a time of heightened sectarian tension in Baghdad, not just on the streets but within the government and among groups engaged in the U.S.-backed political process.

Iraq's most prominent Sunni cleric, Harith al-Dari of the Muslim Clerics Association, blasted an arrest warrant issued for him on suspicion of "terrorism" as an attempt by the Shi'ite-led coalition government to divert attention from its own "crimes."

Sunni leaders like Dari, who is safe from arrest in neighboring Jordan, complain that Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki is not doing enough to rein in militias loyal to his Shi'ite allies and which were blamed for a mass kidnapping of dozens of staff from a Sunni-run government ministry on Tuesday.

Democracy is not an easy thing to swallow for people who have swallowed the backward teachings of Mohammed and are still stuck in the 8th century. And America is getting ready to just hand them a pass with all this rhetoric of withdrawl and timestables resonating from the new American congressional leadership.

Glenn Beck speaks for American's...

"Go There!"

...where Democrats don't.

Ok...We've been getting a lot of hits from search engines looking for the interview with Glenn Beck and Keith Ellison. Unfortunately the only clip available (click on pic) is the 1:58 minute clip shown on Media Matters and Youtube.

What strikes me as funny about all this is that Ellison, having been warned that the question would be politically incorrect, said "Go There". Even after he agreed to the question the left is in an uproar over Glenn Beck's supposed "insensitivity". The clip does not show how the interview ends.

Let me say "I went there" long before this interview, and I think many other Americans have also--especially those on the right. The left seems to be casting off the threat of Radical Islam in general AND ignoring Ellison's ties to the Nation Of Islam and the Minnesota taxi driving Somalians.

BTW why is Media Matters monitoring Beck so closely? I think they think they are right about him...just like the left was so sure about Ned Lamont.

A winning strategy, kill the bad guys

From Right Truth

What a concept, kill the enemy! Out of the mouth of the New York Post, Ralph Peters suggests we made a mistake by 'empowering a sectarian regime before imposing order in the streets'. Not the politically correct thing to say, but I like it. (emphasis mine as always)

What really matters is what our forces are ordered - and permitted - to do. With political correctness permeating our government and even the upper echelons of the military, we never tried the one technique that has a solid track record of defeating insurgents if applied consistently: the rigorous imposition of public order.

That means killing the bad guys. Not winning their hearts and minds, placating them or bringing them into the government. Killing them.

If you're not willing to lay down a rule that any Iraqi or foreign terrorist masquerading as a security official or military member will be shot, you can't win. And that's just one example of the type of sternness this sort of fight requires. NYP

Of course the United States is NOT going to lay down that rule, but we are laying down some suggestions for Maliki:

Reportedly, our CentCom commander, Gen. George Abizaid, just had a "come to Jesus meeting" (metaphor fully intended) with Maliki, warning him that our continued support is contingent on the government moving to impose public order and protect all of Iraq's people. The result is predictable: A few law-enforcement gestures by daylight, some reshuffled government appointments - and more sectarian killing.

Forgive me, but haven't we made this warning previously? And where did it get us? Maliki kissing up to al Sadr and ordering the U.S. forces to leave him and his Mahdi army alone. Apparently the 'come to Jesus' meeting should have been a 'come to the full force of the American military' meeting.

To master Iraq now - if it could be done - we'd have to fight every faction except the Kurds. Are we willing to do that? Are we willing to kill mass murderers and cold-blooded executioners on the spot?

If not, we can't win, no matter what else we do.

Our "humanity" is cowardice masquerading as morality. We're protecting self-appointed religious executioners with our emphasis on a "universal code of behavior" that only exists in our fantasies. By letting the thugs run the streets, we've abandoned the millions of Iraqis who really would prefer peaceful lives and a modicum of progress.

It's been said before, the terrorists are not playing by any rules other than their own -- kill, torture, destroy in any way possible. They don't care about 'restraint', or 'high morals', or political correctness, 'humanity', or 'winning hearts and minds'. They don't give a crap about hearts and minds, they care about destroying anyone who doesn't agree with, and submit to, them.

Our naive version of wartime morality handed Iraq to the murderers. Will our excuse for a sectarian bloodbath be that we "behaved with restraint?"

Any code of ethics that squanders the lives of tens of thousands and the future of millions so we can "claim the moral high ground" is hypocrisy worthy of the Europeans who made excuses for the Holocaust.

If we want to give Iraq's silent - and terrified - majority a last chance, we would have to accept the world's condemnation for killing the killers. If we are unwilling to do that, Iraq's finished.

Our military have not been allowed to do what they are trained to do, fight and win. Shame on our government for that. Shame.

Pakistan Rape Law Angers Islamist

Maulana Fazlur Rahman

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan - Pakistan's lower house of Parliament passed amendments to the country's rape laws Wednesday, ditching the death penalty for extramarital sex and revising a clause on making victims produce four witnesses to prove rape cases.

Consensual sex outside marriage remains a crime punishable by five years in prison or a $165 fine, said a parliamentary official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media.

International and local calls for change intensified after the 2002 gang-rape of a woman, Mukhtar Mai, who was assaulted after a tribal council in her eastern Punjab village ordered the rape as punishment for her 13-year-old brother's alleged affair with a woman of a higher caste.

The amendments — which still must be approved by the Senate — enraged Islamic fundamentalists, but won cautious support from human rights activists, who wanted the controversial laws scrapped altogether.

"We reject it," Maulana Fazlur Rahman, a top Islamist opposition leader, told reporters after the vote, which he described as a "dark day" in Pakistan's parliamentary history.

Rahman and other Islamists vowed to devise a strategy to block Senate passage of the bill. Islamic political groups have previously staged mass rallies to denounce moves by the military-led government deemed contrary to Islam.

This story just shows that not all but that many muslims do not want to be secularized. They think the only correct way to live is to live under Islamic Law that is commanded in the Qur'an. They believe the laws of the country should be the laws of the Qu'ran and apply to all. You may ask what makes these Muslims believe that 4 witness are needed to prove rape? It is in the Quran.

Muhammads wife Aisha was suspected of adultrey and a revelation came from God to Muhammad and cleared Aisha of the charges. God ask the accusers, "Why did they not produce four witnesses? If they could not produce any witnesses, then they were surely lying in the sight of God" (Sura 24:13)

This is where they get the idea that there needs to be 4 witnesses.

Bottom line those that say that this law of having 4 witnesses to a rape is based on the Quran is correct! Muslims that say that this does not exist are in denial or are not aware of this. I have just showed you where it is in the Quran and the Quran is not to be questioned. Also the Quran states that the witness of one woman is only worth half of a man. It takes 2 womens testimony to equal one mans testimony. So therefore A womans word is not equal to a mans. Dont believe me? Just see Quran 2:282 "and call in to witness from among your men two witnesses; but if there are not two men, then one man and two women from among those whom you choose to be witnesses".

So the sad thing is in alot of Islamic countries it is very hard to prove rape. How many Rapes have 4 witnesses? So because of this many women in these countries that go and say they were raped and can not produce witnesses are accused of cheating on there husband! Which this is against Islamic law and punishable. This is even stated in the story above. "Consensual sex outside marriage remains a crime punishable by five years in prison or a $165 fine, said a parliamentary official" So if a woman can not prove the rape with witnesses then she is put in jail for adultery! how sad my prayers are with you women.

The Democrats: Neville Chamberlain Incarnate

"In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act" – George Orwell

Now that the Democrats have won both houses, we have truly entered into the Orwellian era of universal deceit. That blind liberal party, which has hoodwinked a majority of the nation, must now take the lead against the murderous desert pirates. Seemingly natural enemies, they have in common a lethal trait, deceit.

The deceit from the desert is nothing new. It is an unending stream of lies; specifically designed to drain the enemy of it's will to fight.

They say; we are an oppressed and occupied people. We are the targets of racism and discrimination. We want nukes for energy, not weapons. Our struggle for survival is misinterpreted as terrorism. Why the hell are you doing this to us?

The results of last week's elections are living proof that their strategy is working like a charm. The Democratic voters have fallen into the trap. Their acceptance of the great Islamic lie has paved the way for the great liberal charade; we are to blame for all that ails the world. The liberals say that we must understand why there is terror. Here's where the deceit kicks in. What they really mean is; what have we done to nurture it? If we change our approach, the terror will go away. If we are guilty, then we can blame it on the policies of the GOP.

The Democrats are Neville Chamberlain incarnate. They grovel at Satan's feet, hoping to be dropped a bit lower on his "to-do" list.

Today's Democrats are yesterdays Chamberlain. Today's Islam is yesterday's Nazis. To appease is to surrender, embolden. The world watched silently when Hitler's armies swept Austria and Czechoslovakia off the map. By the time Poland's turn had come it was too late.

Today, the world watches silently as the liberals threaten to cede Iraq to the terrorists. The world watches silently as Israel cedes Lebanon to Hezbollah and Gaza to Hamas. As if nothing happened seventy years ago.

As Germany overwhelmed Poland, and Russia swooped in the back door to share in the spoils, the French and British finally had to make good on their mutual defense pact with Poland. They declared war on Germany. Even then, the appeasers just didn't get it. The Germans referred to the war in the west as the sitzkreig, or "the sit down war". England and France had declared war and didn't fire a single shot! Not much time passed before the swastikas were flying in Paris.

The Islamists have openly declared war; not only on western civilization but on the entire non-Islamic world. They boldly proclaim this whenever a microphone is within reach. But the world refuses to accept the declaration. They don't mean it, the liberals claim. The Europeans believe its only political posturing. They are only defending their civil rights claim the Democrats. A modern day sitzkreig.

Similarly, naïve observers will claim that the up tick in Palestinian rocket attacks is a response to the civilian deaths in Beit Hanoun. Liberals will rationalize that it’s the continuation of the "cycle of violence".

The truth however, is very different. It’s the capitulation, stupid. Its no coincidence that the terror attacks came in the same week that PM Woe-lmert said he would have released hundreds of Palestinian murderers from their cages. It's no coincidence that the terror attacks come in the same week that Woe-lmert repeats for the umpteenth time that he would just love to talk to terrorist in chief Abbas. Just as the jackal stalks the wounded deer, the Palestinians stalk the stumbling Olmert. One more rocket, one more civilian fatality, Woe-lmert will break. Just as the Nazis were spurred on by the lack of resolve in the West, so too are the armies of the desert.

The time is long overdue to end the universal deceit and face the revolutionary truth. We are at war, world war. The Iranian rhetoric and obscene propaganda meets up to the once proud Nazi standards. The truth is, this time it's not only about the Jews. They are coming for you all. The Democrats want you to believe that to leave Iraq is the only way to peace. The revolutionary truth however, is very, very different. To appease is to surrender. To capitulate is to die.

Marine jailed for killing

PFC John Jodka
From The Age:

Private First Class John Jodka, 20, the second defendant sentenced in the April 26 death of Hashim Ibrahim Awad, pleaded guilty last month to charges of assault and conspiracy to obstruct justice.

Under a plea deal with government prosecutors, Jodka will serve an 18-month sentence in the military brig — getting credit for about six months spent in confinement — if he agrees to testify against his squad mates. That was a better deal than the sentence issued by the military judge, Marine Lieutenant-Colonel David Jones, who sentenced him to a five-year prison term.

Lieutenant-Colonel Jones handed down his sentence just before seeing the Marine Corps' plea deal. Under military rules, Jodka will serve the lesser of the punishments. "You have a very fortuitous pretrial agreement," the judge said in court.

The agreement includes numerous conditions that Jodka must follow or the longer sentence, harsher punishment and a punitive discharge would instead be imposed.

In closing arguments,lead prosecutor Lieutenant-Colonel John Baker said of Jodka's squad's actions that day: "They killed a 52-year-old crippled man in cold blood. (Jodka) had the opportunity to stop the madness — but he failed to do it."

Jodka had said he thought the man the squad killed that night was Saleh Gowad, a local Iraqi insurgent who was on the battalion's "high value individual" list, not Awad, a retired Iraqi policeman.

Another victim of the fog of war.

I wonder how many "Awads" there were in WWI and WWII. We'd probably still be prosecuting them. This is how things have changed in our country since the "Greatest Generation". We have forgotten how to fight and the cost of doing so.

No credt to the rapists and murderers here, but I think just being in a squad doesn't justify being tried for it's crimes.

Pakistan Steps Away from Sharia Law

Don't Get Raped If You Are Muslim-click for video
Pakistan votes to roll back Islamic rape law...

The Islamic laws, known as the Hudood Ordinances, were introduced by a military ruler, President Zia-ul-Haq, in 1979. They made a rape victim liable to prosecution for adultery if she could not produce four male witnesses to the assault.

The main amendment approved on Wednesday takes rape out of the sphere of religious law and puts it under the penal code. That does away with the need for male witnesses and will allow convictions to be made on the basis of forensic and circumstantial evidence.

The amendment bill must be approved by the upper house of parliament before it becomes law.

Is there any reason to doubt it?

If passed it will definitely be a step in the right direction. Earlier this month--the 4 witnesses were in the car, the 5th filmed it, and she STILL got 90 lashes.
