DC Gaza protest Part 2: Allahu Akbar

The chant "Allahu-Akbar" means "Allah is greatest." It is the preferred rallying cry during terrorist attacks and beheadings.



Allahu-Akbar super mega-mix!

Glimpses of the Islamo-Marxist convergence in DC

The Marxist-Leninist organization International A.N.S.W.E.R. organized rallies in support of Hamas across the country today, in what it called an "emergency day of action." Here are some glimpses of the rally and march in Washington, DC.


Professional Agitator



This gentleman, who identified himself as a "professional" political agitator when asked by a reporter, was not happy when I reminded him that Hamas is an Islamist (Muslim Brotherhood) organization. He also didn't know that the United States (and Europe, and even sometimes Israel) have funded the Palestinian Authority (Fatah) and have given them weapons and training, ostensibly to battle the "real terrorists" in Hamas. In 2008 the United States gave $562 million to the Palestinian Authority, making us their number-one donor of aid.


Jews Eat Babies!



This "gentleman" attended the rally with his wife and two young children. He and his wife held these home-made signs implying that Jews eat Gazan children for fun.

I asked him politely to get a shot of his sign, and to his credit he actually seemed somewhat embarrassed of it... but of course not embarrassed enough to prevent him from displaying it publicly at a rally. This is an example of a blood libel and has been prevalent in anti-Jewish lore for centuries. Very classy.

Much more to come...

If you support Israel subscribe to the IDF Youtube Channel

More attempted censorship from YouTube. Visit and subcribe to channel here: idfnadesk

The IDF Spokesperson's Unit is the Israel Defense Forces' professional body responsible for media and public relations in Israel and around the world. This is our new site that will help us bring our message to the world.

We are saddened that YouTube has taken down some of our exclusive footage showing the IDF's operational success in operation Cast Lead against Hamas extremists in the Gaza Strip. As the State of Israel again faces those who would see it destroyed, it is imperative that we in the IDF show the world the inhumanity directed against us and our efforts to stop it. It is also worth noting that one of the videos removed had the highest number of hits (over 10,000) at the time of its removal.

As it stands now we are working on opening up new channels on alternative sites, when we are done we will post the addresses here.

Islamists or "Progressive Activists"?

Molotov cocktail thrown at Chicago shul

A Molotov cocktail was thrown at a Chicago synagogue on Monday morning.

No one was hurt in the fire bomb attack on Temple Sholom of Chicago, located in a North Side neighborhood of the city, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. The incident is being investigated as a hate crime.

Police were notified just before 2 a.m. Monday of a fire at the synagogue. When they arrived, they discovered a small fire in a fenced-in playground area.

The newspaper reported that someone had thrown a bottle stuffed with a rag soaked in an unidentified liquid accelerant toward the building. Almost no damage to the wall was visible after the fire was put out.

The attack may have been related to Operation Cast Lead, the current IDF operation in the Gaza Strip.



"Have you heard there's a war involving Jews on the other side of the world? Open season on Jews!"

My only question is, were these "immigrant youths" or "progressive youths"?

VIDEO ROUND UP: UK Fifth-Column takes to the streets over Gaza strikes

The Islamic and Antifa worlds are in an uproar because Israel will not lie down and die slowly. In the UK they are mobbing the streets in contempt of the Western infidel society that hosts and supports them. Their current excuse is Gaza but they are just as offended by cartoons and uncovered women.

Reality complicates Obama's policy in the Middle East

More idiotic reporting from AP; they titled this article "Gaza complicates Obama's policy in Mideast":

Israel's deadly air assault on the militant Islamic group will further complicate Obama's challenge to achieve a Middle East peace — something that eluded both the Bush and Clinton administrations.

Isn't it horrible that Israel's need to defend its citizens from indiscriminate death has clouded Obama's chances at achieving "Middle East Peace"? Yes, it's quite unfortunate that geopolitical realities have infringed on the president-elect's vane need for a superficial notch on his belt called "Middle East Peace"; a goal that he and other US presidents have insisted on pursuing, to the great detriment of Israeli security, regardless of what that it actually means for the people on the ground.

An "expert" offered this nebulous and vapid statement:

"I think Obama will be supportive of Israel, but will bring a little more skepticism to it," Alterman said. "I think Obama will start from premise that Israel is an ally, but that we have to look at this fresh."

Israel is either an ally, or it isn't. If Israel is an ally, the United States should not pressure it to give concessions to the same genocidal Islamic supremacists that the US rightfully bombs in Afghanistan and Iraq. There is nothing "fresh" to think about. Israel faces implacable theocratic foes who are committed to its utter destruction. Pick a side, period.

Israel bombs weapons tunnels; BBC covers for Hamas


The longer-range Katyusha and Grad rockets that Hamas fires indiscriminately at Israeli towns arrive in the strip through underground tunnels that originate on the other side of the border with Egypt. On Sunday the IAF bombed 40 of these supply tunnels within 4 minutes.

The BBC refused to call them "smuggling tunnels" and instead used the nebulous phrase "supply tunnels"; as if baby formula and medical supplies were being ferried through these tunnels.

Post-Modern War: Israel gave notice to Gaza civilians with text messages

We live in an era of post-modern warfare, in which Western actors (or perceived Western actors) must forfeit the lives of their soldiers to protect the "human rights" of Islamic combatants. Meanwhile, the Islamic combatants spit on modern gestures like the "Geneva Convention"; they have regularly sawed the heads off of captives with dull knives for worldwide media publication.

Israel's retaliatory airstrikes on Saturday were immediately and forcefully condemned by the Islamic world and several important European countries. In the Arab world the strikes have already been compared to the Holocaust.

On the day before the bombing Israel allowed humanitarian and medical aid to trucked from Israel to Gaza, and these humanitarian shipments resumed on the day after the bombing:

Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak on Sunday authorised a humanitarian envoy to enter the Gaza Strip, where a massive Israeli air campaign has killed more than 270 people in less than a day.

The Kerem Shalom crossing in southern Gaza will be opened "so a convoy transporting humanitarian aid and medicine will be able to pass through," a spokeswoman said.

Israel has kept Gaza largely sealed off since Hamas violently seized power there in June 2007, overrunning forces loyal to secular Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas.

It allowed the passage of aid trucks on Friday, the day before it unleashed a massive air bombardment of Hamas targets, which medics say has killed more than 270 people and wounded more than 60.

I don't remember the Soviets delivering truckloads of food and medical supplies to Nazi Berlin when they crushed the city and its civilian population in 1945.

Before the airstrikes the Israeli military went to the trouble of sending thousands of cell-phone messages to Gazan civilians warning them to avoid the target areas:



Militants often operate against Israel from civilian areas. Late Saturday, thousands of Gazans received Arabic-language cell-phone messages from the Israeli military, urging them to leave homes where militants might have stashed weapons.


As far as I know Hitler did not drop warning pamphlets on Jewish neighborhoods in Eastern Europe before enslaving their inhabitants and systematically killing them.

The post-modern sycophants at the UN should be praising Israel for reaching the very height of the self-destructive "progressiveness" they all aspire too. Israel is actively funding and supplying it's own genocidal enemies, even as they continuously shower rockets on Israeli civilians.

The outrage is not that the Israeli airstrike took place... the outrage is that it didn't occur sooner and with more ferocity.

Oh, I almost forgot... Israel is admitting injured Gazans into Israeli hospitals for treatment. Absurdity.

Atlas breaks the horrifying details of Mumbai massacre

If you have the stomach you must read this report by Pamela Geller about the bloody, perverse and sadistic acts of our Islamic enemies in Mumbai.



"Even the Rabbi and his wife at Nariman House were sexually assaulted and their genitalia mutilated," said a senior officer of the investigating team, not wishing to be quoted.


DISCRETION ADVISED: This story is deeply disturbing, but like the beheading videos it gives us an important window into the enemy's depraved mindset. You must know what we're up against; a dose of reality will help you defend yourself and your children.

Merry Christmas: Islamic intolerance in Nazareth

Muslims are asserting their dominance in one of the most important cities of Christianity. Keep in mind Nazareth is WITHIN ISRAEL, the Jewish state. Muslims are the minority yet they are brazen enough to post this intimidating message in the public square. This is a taste of what a "bi-national" state of "Palestine" would look like; no tolerance for non-Muslims.



As Christmas Approaches, Muslims Erect ‘Allah Has No Son’ Banner in Nazareth

NAZARETH, Israel (CNS) -- A large white banner proclaiming the power of Allah in English and Arabic stretches between two light poles and a date palm tree at the entrance of the plaza in front of the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth.

"He is Allah (the) one and only. Allah the eternal, absolute. He begetteth not nor was he begotten. And there is none like unto him," says the banner, quoting the Quran, the sacred book of Islam.

In contrast, on a dreary rainy late-December day the only Christmas decorations along the main thoroughfare of the city are in a few private shops with flashing lights, hanging Santa Claus dolls and Christmas trees in the window. The municipality flicks on the Christmas lights at night.

Gaza takes another step towards the Dark Ages

Gaza parliament sanctions bill allowing whipping, hanging as standard punitive action

Section 84 stipulates that anyone found guilty of "drinking to making wine will be subjected to 40 lashes… drinking and harassing the public will be punishable by 40 lashes and three months in jail."

The whip will be used on anyone "engaging in games of chance, offending religious beliefs and defaming others' character," as well.

The bill also calls for dismembering – mostly of the hands – of anyone convicted of theft.


It's miraculous that Hamas maintains their popularity with Western "progressives" despite such brazen buzz-killing policies.

Openly Genocidal Theocratic Holocaust-Denier to make official UK Christmas address

Please tell me this is a sick joke.

A leading British television channel's plan to broadcast a seven-minute "Christmas message" by Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has generated angry protest from Israel and critics of the Iranian regime.

...

In the past, the alternative message "has tended to be innocuous," added Douglas Murray, director of the Centre for Social Cohesion in London. "All I can assume is that as its viewing figures plummet, Channel 4 has decided they would try to attract controversy. But this is the first time [the guest] is a Holocaust denier who would like to create another [Holocaust] and is destabilizing a region of the world," he said.


Thanks to NObama for the tip.

"Rosengård Gangstas" and other video from the Malmo Intifada

Gates of Vienna had a detailed post today about the Muslim/leftist violence in Malmo, Sweden:

For the last few days young Muslim immigrants in the Rosengård district of Malmö have been rioting. The trouble started over the closure of a storefront mosque, and escalated to the point where Rosengård resembles the banlieues of Paris, with burning cars, rock-throwing “youths”, Molotov cocktails, and violent battles with police.


In searching for video footage of the conflict I came across some interesting artifacts.

First I noticed that a YouTube friend of mine had posted a short video of a fiery street disturbance:




The "related videos" section led me to a dozen or so live videos taken by a YouTuber in Sweden named "Affectations", who is apparently an Iraqi-born 18-year-old; he's one of those ubiquitous but nebulous "immigrant youths" we always hear about in the mainstream media. Here's his explanation of the conflict in broken English:

About what happend is that the police hurted a 14 years old arab and they shuted down the basement-mosque in Ramels Väg (Street). That is why the owner didn't pay the rent/tax (maybe).

200, 300 teenage muslims planed and started thier revenge and revolution.

They buyed fireworks and made homemade bombs, throwing them at the police and screaming "Fu*k the police!" and
"Detest the police!"

The homemade bombs are so strong that you feel that someone is kicking the window when it's exploding a 100 meter away.
Or more...

It will explode only if you hit the target.

These kings/heros are nothing to play with


Later he asserts that he is merely an observer with a camera and did not take part in what he calls the "Rosegard Revolution".

I'm arabmuslim and I'm not criminal or anything. The only thing I was doing there was filming. If you think I'm one of them, then I wouldn't filmed and puted this up on YouTube. Think about that!


Here's one of his videos, see his channel for the rest:





And perhaps more disturbing than the violence was a home-made "slideshow" video featuring Arab youths from Rosegard set to what appears to be a horrible Swedish take on rap:






From the video description:

rosengårds gangstrar ni vet va ni e nigga



And to round off your video-immersion into the culture of Malmo's "immigrant youth," here's a low-budget rap video called "Rosengard." Enjoy!

National Review weighs in eloquently on Che movie

In an article by Mark Goldblatt.

Indeed, one of the ongoing mysteries of American popular culture is why Communism is merchandised more often and more effectively than Nazism or Islamism. Is it just a matter of public relations? Why does an obsessive Nazi-hunter like Simon Wiesenthal get positive press while an obssessive Communist-hunter like Joe McCarthy is vilified? Why is Marxist Theory, with its alternative view of individual versus collective rights, an accepted academic discipline — but Sharia Theory, with its alternative view of female empowerment, an insult to women?

The truth of the matter is that Nazism, Islamism, and Communism are all totalitarian movements. All three stand in direct opposition to Enlightenment values of religious tolerance and rational inquiry. All three seek to exterminate whoever stands in their way. Nazism justifies its genocide in the name of racial purity. Islamism, in the name of spiritual purity. Communism, in the name of socio-economic purity.

One way or another, the shallow graves get filled.

Pipeline Of Hatred: Antisemitism

I came across this very interesting presentation that uses maps, tables and figures to tell the story of the convergence of Leftist and Islamic antisemitism. It's somewhere between a video and a powerpoint presentation, and I think it's a very effective way to present these concepts graphically. It's hosted by Concept Wizard; take a look.

Israel stands up for itself

They denied entry to a UN "Human Rights" official who wishes for their destruction. From the Jerusalem Post.

Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council's special rapporteur on the situation of Palestinian human rights in the West Bank and Gaza, was denied entry to Israel, it emerged Monday.

Simona Halperin, the director of the Foreign Ministry's International Organization and Human Rights department, said that Falk was turned back since as rapporteur he was "illegitimate."

Halperin called Falk "completely unobjective," citing his comparisons of Israelis to Nazis and Israel's actions to the Holocaust, and as such, she said, he was "unwelcome."

Halperin said Israel sent Falk an e-mail on Saturday, but that he decided to make the trip in any case.

Just like an arrogant UN official to ignore the national sovereignty of a democratic state.

In June, Falk was granted a request to enter Israel, not as a rapporteur, but as an academic, in order to attend a conference at a Palestinian university.

Nevertheless, Falk used the trip to go to Ramallah and file a full report to the UN in which he was extremely critical of Israel.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Falk "does not try to advance human rights, but instead comes with his conclusions ready and those conclusions are of course extreme, methodical criticism of Israel and only of Israel."

Last week, Falk accused Israel of committing a crime against humanity with its policies in the Gaza Strip.

What's good about the financial crisis?

1) Cheap gas.

2) Islamists are losing a lot of money too.

Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, Citigroup Inc.’s largest individual investor, lost 19 percent of his personal wealth in the past year as the global economic slump reduced the value of banking and property assets, according to Arabian Business.

The Saudi billionaire was ranked the wealthiest Arab with assets worth $17.08 billion as of Dec. 2, the 2008 Rich List, published on the Dubai-based magazine’s Web site today said. That compares with $21 billion a year ago, the magazine reported, citing Alwaleed’s private financial accounts.

Even militant Muslims chafe under the stark realities of Sharia Law

A new Palestinian poll (Dec 3-5, 2008) shows that 40% of residents want to get the hell out of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip (compared to 25% in the West Bank).

Arab Muslims in Gaza have been free to shape their own political destiny since Israel unilaterally withdrew its soldiers and settlers from the territory in August 2005. In January 2006 a plurality of them voted a violent Islamic-supremacist movement, Hamas, into power. In June of 2007 Hamas killed 118 Arabs when they violently cleansed Fatah from the Gaza Strip. They immediately instituted Islamic government in the territory, and brought economic ruin as much of the international community boycotted the terrorist government. Apparently even fundamentalist Muslims who overwhelmingly support suicide bombing (2006 poll, see p. 10, Q18) are not happy with the realities of Shariah Law.

Indian police release names, photos of Islamic terrorists

Via Debka. WARNING: I've put the pictures below the fold as some of them are graphic. Click "read further" to view:

Under the caption "The faces of Terror," the Indian police Tuesday, Dec. 9, released the names and photos of the terrorists who attacked Mumbai Nov. 26. Their places of origin, aliases and real names were also revealed. All ten came from Pakistan's Punjab province.

...

Two of the eight photos released were taken from dead bodies. Their identity cards were too charred to be used. The ninth was badly defaced and the 10th is in custody. The exposure of the ten terrorists' identities will further fuel military tensions between India and Pakistan and Islamabad's expectation of reprisals by New Delhi against Lashkar-e-Taiba bases. Yet Pakistan stands by its refusal to hand over or give Indian access to the Lashkar-e-e Taiba commander Zakiur Rehman Lakhwi, said to be behind the Mumbai terror strikes.



In a special briefing in Mumbai, Joint Commissioner of Police Rakesh Maria said the names of the nine terrorists killed in the encounter were obtained from Mohammed Ajmal Amir Iman who was caught alive.

The two who attacked Mumbai's railway terminus and hospital were identified as Ismail Khan alias Abu Ismail from Dera Ismail Khan, and Mohammed Ajmal Amir Iman alias Abu Mujahid from Okara. Those who attacked Taj Hotel in south Mumbai were named as Hafeez Arshad alias Bada Abdul Rehman from Multan, Javed alias Abu Ali from Okara, Shoaib alias Soheb from Sialkot and Nazeer alias Abu Umer from Faisalabad.





Abdul Rehman alias Abdul Rehman Chhota from Multan and Fahadullah alias Abu Fahad from Okara were the duo which attacked the Trident Oberoi hotel.

Their ages averaged between 23 and 25, the Indian police officer reported. They were given aliases during training to preserve their identities from each other. Their training in arms and explosives is believed to have taken place for more than a year at four locations in Pakistan. Some also underwent three weeks of indoctrination.

Nasir, Nazeer and Ismail Khan, allegedly the leader of the group, had participated in terror missions earlier, Maria said. He refused to provide details of their previous missions.

While sailing for three days into Indian waters on board the Gujarat-based fishing vessel "Kuber," which the terrorists hijacked, they spoke to each other and that was how the captured gunman discovered their names and places of origin.

The police chief reported: "We are examining the contents of the four GPS devices, one satellite phone and nine mobile phones that have been recovered." He refused to say if the SIM cards found in the mobiles were of Indian origin but said one used by the terrorists had been purchased in Kolkata and two people had been arrested for obtaining them using forged documents.

Ten days after the Islamic massacre, the new head of the Chabad center is preparing to restore the facility which was a home from home for Israeli and Jewish visitors and name it for its murdered director Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife Rivka.

The Taj Hotel pledged its reopening would be marked with an interfaith ceremony.

Bush speaks meaningless platitudes to get us ready for an Obama administration

The entire statement is nonsense, but here's a particularly absurd concept:


Bush said there was now an international consensus on the issues that plague the region. "Israelis, Palestinians, and Arabs recognize that the creation of a peaceful, democratic Palestinian state is in their interests"


Where to begin?

1) Technically the Israelis have realized that a peaceful democratic Palestinian state IS in their interest, but all rational Israelis have come to the conclusion that the majority of Palestinians are not interested in living peacefully. Both Hamas and Fatah dream of a future with Jews ethnically cleansed from the area. The difference is that Hamas wants it sooner and is more willing to use overt violence than Fatah.

2) The Palestinians have decided that a state next to Israel IS in their interests as well. Of course limited sovereignty over half of the land would be an acceptable stepping-stone for either Hamas or Fatah in their long-term goal of conquest. They openly refer to their goal of conquering all the land from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea (ie all of Israel).



3) And yes, the Arab states, most of whom do not openly call for the destruction of Israel anymore, are interested in the Saudi "Peace" Plan in which Israel is absorbed back into Dar-al-Islam in stages; the first step being the creation of a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza.

In fact it would not be an exaggeration to say that Israel faces its most hostile regional environment since the late 1970's when its most populous neighbor Egypt gave up on genocide under Sadat. From the long-range threat of a nuclear-tipped Iranian missile, to the 40,000 rockets that Hezbollah has smuggled into Lebanon under the UN's watchful eye, to the "Palestinian" groups that call for destruction from within.

Bush's comments are insulting to any intelligent observer, and are in concordance with his recent comments that he's "sorry" about the financial crisis. He's obviously a broken man who after 8 years has finally succumbed to the left's narrative of his own actions.

The Best Election Money Can Buy: Update


Obama spent FOUR TIMES as much as McCain in the closing weeks of the campaign.

Obama brought in $291 million between Sept. 1 and Nov. 24 and spent $349 million, helped by funds left over from a primary battle that began in February 2007, his campaign said. McCain, a Republican senator from Arizona, spent $78.9 million of the $84.1 million he received in public financing.


If the roles were reversed there would undoubtedly be news stories today about how the "corporate right-wing" bought the election. Instead the media pretends Obama rose on a groundswell of "grass-roots" support. I'll let you in on a little secret; you can't raise 300 million dollars in less than 2 months from waitresses and factory workers alone.

Ten most harmful books of the 19th and 20th centuries

This article at Human Events is a couple years old, but I came across it today and found it very interesting.

Human Events asked a panel of 15 conservative scholars and public policy leaders to help us compile a list of the Ten Most Harmful Books of the 19th and 20th Centuries. Each panelist nominated a number of titles and then voted on a ballot including all books nominated. A title received a score of 10 points for being listed No. 1 by one of our panelists, 9 points for being listed No. 2, etc. Appropriately, The Communist Manifesto, by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, earned the highest aggregate score and the No. 1 listing.


Rounding out the top three were Hitler's "Mein Kampf" and "Quotations from Chairman Mao."

I can't argue with the top 3, but I think Edward Said's "Orientalism" should have been somewhere on the list. It gave birth to the "root causes" explanation for terrorism and reinforced the self-destructive tendencies of the anti-Western Left.

Here's a picture of the pampered, Egypt-raised, New York-based "intellectual" throwing rocks at Israeli soldiers on the Lebanese border, pretending to be an oppressed "palestinian."

Egyptian cleric calls Obama to convert (back) to Islam

Via Jihad Watch:

Following are excerpts from an address delivered by Egyptian cleric Hassan Abu Al-Ashbal, which aired on Al-Nas TV on November 27, 2008.

Hassan Abu Al-Ashbal: Let me take this opportunity to address the leader of Europe, and the leader of America, who is the leader of the world, the recently-elected Obama, who is the leader of the Byzantines – he is like the Byzantine leaders in the days of Prophet Muhammad.

My message to him is three-fold. First, I invite him to convert to Islam. This is the call of the Prophet and of Allah. Oh Obama – convert to Islam, and you will be saved. I hope that Allah will reward you twice: Once for converting to Islam, and another reward for all those who will convert in your footsteps. If you want glory – you will find it in Islam. If you want honor – you will find it in Islam. In religions other than Islam there is utter humiliation, even if you are the president of the entire world.

[...]

You, Obama, are among those who have pledged before Allah – Allah who created you, sustained you, and brought you to this position – to be a Muslim who believes that Allah is the one God, especially since you have some kind of roots in Islam. Convert to Islam, and you will be saved. All glory and honor lie in following Allah and His messenger Muhammad. Know that the true religion is the religion of Islam, and all other religions are fabricated religions, which are null and void – religions that were abrogated by the shari’a of Muhammad.

If you refuse to return to your [Islamic] origins, to the way Allah created you, withdraw your huge armies and military bases from the lands of the Muslims. Know that all your predecessors have ended up in the garbage bin of history, and that America’s black and bleak history in the land of the Muslims and the Arabs constitutes an evil omen for you, your predecessors, and your successors. Know, Obama, that America, with all its size and might, will know no peace, as long as a single Muslim child lacks food, drink, medicine, or housing. If you refuse, Obama, and insist on remaining in Muslim lands, know that Allah still plants in [Muslims] obedience to Him, and they are willing to wait for Paradise, which is closer than their own shoelaces.

Know, Obama, that in the lands of Islam, there are people who seek death, and are eager for it, even more than you and your people are eager for life – any kind of life, even a life of humiliation.

David Pryce-Jones summarizes the cold reality of our global condition in 3 paragraphs

Via his National Review Online blog:

The attack on Bombay seems to have much in common with 9/11. Another group of young men have been prepared to kill and to die. On both occasions, the intention was to leave as many victims as possible. The captured terrorist says that in Bombay they intended to kill 5,000, which would have been an atrocity on a wartime scale.

...

Islamists are out to confront the whole world. Iran believes it will master and subdue the United States. Al-Qaeda believes likewise. Hamas and Hezbollah aim to destroy Israel. Assorted Islamists seek bases in Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Egypt, here, there, and everywhere They are in the grip of fantasy, of course, and therefore it is pointless to argue with them about the nature of reality. The Muslim world is sinking in distress and failure, taking with it as many as it can.

What ought to happen now is a reaction on the part of those Muslims who realise what is happening, and do not wish to be taken down by fellow Muslims. Repudiation of Islamism is requisite on the part of the Kings of Saudi Arabia and Morocco, the Sheikh of Al-Azhar, the ever-voluble Tariq Ramadan and Sheikh Qaradawi, anyone and everyone with a voice in the Muslim world. As it is, President Asif Zardari of Pakistan is pleading with India not to go to war. The Bombay killers wanted such a war in the evident belief that Allah is with them and they would win it. Intelligence services are warning of other similar attacks in the offing. If Muslims themselves do not manage to control and contain Islamists, there is bound to be a great deal of reality enforcement, and very tragic that will be.

While the world was watching Mumbai, twice as many people died due to Islamic expansionism in Nigeria

Via Yahoo. "Death toll in Nigeria rises, army restores calm"

Residents took more bodies to the main mosque in the Nigerian city of Jos on Sunday, bringing the death toll from two days of clashes between Muslim and Christian gangs to about 400 people.

Rival ethnic and religious gangs have burned homes, shops, mosques and churches in fighting triggered by a disputed local election in the city at the crossroads of Nigeria's Muslim north and Christian south. It is the country's worst unrest for years.

OK, so far it sounds like mutual violence in which both Christians and Muslims are taking casualties. You have to read the very end of the article though to understand how the population in this region became so "religiously diverse."

Nigeria's 140 million people are roughly split equally between Muslims and Christians and the two communities generally live peacefully side by side. Displaced people from both religions sheltered together in impromptu camps around Jos.

But ethnic and religious tensions in the country's "Middle Belt" run deep, rooted in resentment from indigenous minority groups, mostly Christian or animist, toward migrants and settlers from the Hausa-speaking Muslim north.

The original source of this article is Reuters, which has been known to use the phrase "militants" instead of "Islamic terrorists" on many occasions. If even they acknowledge that Muslims are the interlopers here, you can take it to the bank.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Muslim settlers are invading a Christian area and it led to "tension." Who would have guessed? Of course the Jewish "settlers" in the West Bank are blamed for everything from the poverty of the entire Arab world to 9/11. You read and hear about them all the time; how they are an "obstacle to peace." They are portrayed as "foreign invaders" who deserve whatever violence comes to them. Yet we never hear of these Nigerian Muslim settlers. Also, more Nigerians have been killed in the past two days (400) than Palestinians in the entire year of 2007 in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict (373). Apparently Palestinian lives are worth a lot more than others in the eyes of the world press.

The West and the entire non-Muslim world need to wake up. The particular excuses put forth by Islamists and their apologists in the West (Kashmir, Palestine, Kosovo, Iraq, etc) are temporary justifications and the goalposts are regularly moved when expedient. The Jihad is global, and closing our eyes won't make it go away.

The UK's Suicidal Islamic Appeasement Strategy Endangers the Whole World


I used to feel sorry for the British people because they lived under the tyranny of one of the most fascistic "politically correct" and "multiculturalist" establishments in the West.

Now I feel sorry for all of us, because we're all suffering for the sake of the self-loathing left-wing charlatans in the British government and media. These people are more concerned with perceived Muslim "sensitivities" than they are with saving innocent lives.


"Mumbai terrorists were 'funded by cash raised in UK mosques'"


A banned Islamic terrorist group funded with cash raised in British mosques is believed to be behind the Mumbai attacks.

Kashmiri separatists Lashkar-e-Taiba, ‘The Army of the Righteous’, which has strong links to Al Qaeda, is accused of previous terrorist outrages in India.

And intercepted telephone and radio communications before and during the latest attacks apparently suggest a link.

Indian officials say at least one of the gunmen captured after the attacks is part of a Lashkar network.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The group last week denied any responsibility and the unknown group Deccan Mujahideen said it was behind the atrocity.

But earlier this year another group, the Indian Mujahideen, which has links to Lashkar-e-Taiba, sent an email to Indian police warning it was planning an attack in Mumbai.

The message read: ‘We are keeping a close eye on you and just waiting for the right time to execute your bloodshed...Let the Indian Mujahideen warn all the people of Mumbai...You are already on our hit list and this time very, very seriously.’

Lashkar-e-Taiba has been blamed for violence throughout India, including the 2001 attack on the Indian Parliament building in New Delhi and a strike at an amusement park in Hyderabad in 2007.

It is accused of being behind a series of train bombings in Mumbai in 2006, which claimed almost 200 lives.

The group is outlawed in Britain and the US. In 2006, a Coventry man was sentenced to nine years in jail for conspiring to provide funds for its terrorist activities.

The Mumbai terror attack's first prototype: Mike's Place, Tel Aviv, 2003

Via Debka:

Five years ago, al Qaeda enlisted two Pakistani British Muslims to land by sea in Tel Aviv, seize a large beachside hotel and the nearby US embassy, take hostages and shoot as many as possible. Recruited at London's radical Finsbury Park mosque (like shoe-bomber Richard Reid), Asif Muhammed Hanif and Omar Khan Sharif were trained for their mission in neighboring Syria and Gaza Strip.


But they missed their main objectives. Instead, they hit Mike's Place, a bar, killing three Israelis and injuring 60. Those directives, however, recurred strikingly - albeit on a mega-scale - in the Islamist terrorists' method of operation in Mumbai, on Wednesday, Nov. 26.


Mumbai was attacked - not by two but an estimated 30 terrorists, who were assigned seven targets in a world city of more than 16 million. Had the pair of bombers carried off their Tel Aviv mission as instructed, less than two years after 9/11, it would have resonated hugely for al Qaeda. The two British Islamists were prepared as meticulously as the much larger group of Mumbai attackers, spending months in Gaza taking instruction from Hamas in suicide tactics with bomb vests, after their initial indoctrination in Syria.




The 2003 attack started going askew when, at the last moment, Hanif and Sharif's al Qaeda controller changed the original plan. Instead of landing in Tel Aviv by sea, the bombers were told to make their way from Gaza to the Israeli town several days before the target date, register at a hotel with their British passports and thoroughly scout the targeted locations.

Although by 2008, al Qaeda had advanced from bomb vests to commando tactics, careful reconnaissance and mounting operations from neighboring countries were abiding elements of their mode of operation, as revealed in the Mumbai assault.

The 2003 operation began to unravel after the two bombers, instead of making for a hotel and the US embassy, attacked a bar, only to find their bomb vests were defective. Hanif's detonated only partly, killing three Israelis and himself, Sharif's did not work at all and he ran off.

Then, too, the UK government disowned any British connection in the incident, which was easier then, given the small scale of the incident.

The full story came out only four years later in May 2007, when US forces in Iraq captured Al Hadi al Iraqi, who turned out to be the al Qaeda operative who trained Hanif and Sharif and sent them to Tel Aviv in April 2003.

Alan Scherr Update

As I suspected, Alan Scherr is indeed from a Jewish family. He was originally from Baltimore, Maryland and a Jewish memorial service will be held for him there. From the Baltimore Jewish Times:

A memorial service for Alan Scherr and his daughter, Naomi, both murdered by terrorists in the recent attack on India’s financial district, will be held Sunday, November 30, 7 p.m. at the Etz Chaim Center for Jewish Studies, 3702 Fords Lane. Mr. Scherr’s sister and brother-in-law Soozie and Kurt Seiden are members of Tiferes Yisroel Bais Dovid, Rabbi Goldberger’s Shul.

Mrs. Seiden’s brother was in India on a meditation retreat along with a group of followers of the Synchronocity movement. Mr. Scherr, 58, was a teacher at Loyola. He was a graduate of the Baltimore City Public School system.


While his life arc was useful in illustrating a point in my earlier thread, I certainly hold no animus towards him. When it comes down to it he was trying to live his life as best he could like all the rest of us. May he and his daughter, and all of the Mumbai victims, rest in peace.

Mumbai Massacre 3: George Galloway Blames the British For Islamic Terrorism in Mumbai

Hideous British politician George Galloway is a reliable weather-vane for the opinions of the Moonbat Left. Here he is blaming the Mumbai murders on "the British" and "imperialism in general." Keep in mind the British withdrew from India 61 years ago. Pakistan and India are "big boys" and are able to make their own decisions.



Furthermore, he completely omits the fact that Islamic imperialists ruled over India for centuries. Perhaps the legacy of that conquest, which began 500 years before Europeans came onto the Indian scene, may be the root of Hindu-Muslim acrimony. Of course such a line of thought eludes Galloway and other leftists because it does not place the guilt unequivocally upon the West.

Mumbai Massacre 2: A Lesson for Liberals, Especially Liberal American Jews

The Muslims who massacred 160 (and counting) innocents in Mumbai, India focused on foreigners; mainly Americans, Britons and as always with Islamic terrorists, Jews. Indeed, they had to go out of their way to find Jews. Although Jews have lived in India for over 2,500 years, they have never numbered more than a few tens of thousands, and today most Indian Jews and their descendents live in Israel. An estimated 5,000 Jews remained in India in 2006, or less than .05% of the total population of 1.1 billion.

By now most of you have probably heard about the story of the Chabad House in Mumbai where five hostages were found dead. Two of the confirmed dead are Rabbi Gavriel Holtzberg and his wife. This is what they looked like:



They are easily identifiable as religious Jews, and thus the vast majority of American Jews - who are Reform or secular - can psychologically distance themselves from them. After all, if those liberal, enlightened, progressive, Obama-voting American Jews had been visiting India they would have integrated themselves with the local culture, not showing their Jewish faith or ethnicity openly.

That brings us to the two other American victims who have been identified thus far:



Alan Scherr and his daughter Naomi were the first American casualties to be identified in Mumbai. Alan Scherr was a former university professor who lived outside of Charlottesville, Virginia (home of UVA), and had found comfort in Buddhist-influenced meditation. In fact Scherr had lived at the Synchronicity Foundation Sanctuary since his 13 year-old daughter's birth. I can find no confirmation that this man was born Jewish, I'm relying on my "Jewdar." He looks Jewish, his last name is feasibly Jewish, his daughter's first name is Biblical (Jewish), he's a former professor, and his life is devoted to meditation. Why is the last point a clue to his Jewishness? It has been estimated that more than 20% of American converts to Buddhism are Jews. In other words they are ten times more likely to convert to Buddhism than the general population their 2% share of the US population would suggest.





Whether or not the man is actually Jewish, he is a symbol of secular Jews who disproportionately come under the sway of new-age, Buddhist, and secular/humanist expressions of spirituality. Like all liberals, they think that somehow their "tolerant" and "progressive" outlook will shield them from the violence of Islamic terrorists. In fact, liberals are loathe to even use the word "Islamic" to describe them. They are seen as misguided criminals who are suffering from the results of poverty, oppression, and Western imperialism. If only we'd sit down with them and talk, we could reach an understanding (excuse me while I roll my eyes).

The fate of Alan Scherr should be a sign to liberals, especially liberal Jews, that they are not immune from Islamic violence even if they completely separate themselves from the Jewish religion and people. The secular Jews of Western Europe thought they were fully assimilated "new men" who had transcended the crass notions of race of ethnicity. That was until Hitler taught them that one Jewish grandparent made them Jewish, and thus just as worthy of murder as any Orthodox Yeshiva-student.

Alan Scherr and his daughter were not visiting Israel, nor were they were attending a synagogue for religious services or a function for a recognizably Jewish cause; they were visiting Mumbai, India on a Buddhist-influenced spiritual journey. And yet, they are just as dead as the rabbi and his wife.

Mumbai Massacre 1: "British Men Among the Terrorists"

And by "British Men" they mean "Muslims from Pakistan who choose to reside in the infidel realm called the United Kingdom to sponge welfare benefits and kill people in the name of Islam".

Two British-born Pakistanis were among eight gunmen seized by Indian commandos who stormed buildings to free hostages, Vilasrao Deshmukh, the chief minister of Mumbai, reportedly said.


Britain and Western Europe's abject failure to assimilate Muslim immigrants threatens to destabilize the entire continent, and as seen from the Mumbai incident even threatens non-Muslim governments and peoples far from European shores. Muslim British Jihadists have also been involved in suicide bombings in Israel, and have played a significant role in the nihilistic bloodbaths commonly referred to as "insurgencies" in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and Somalia. British multiculturalist appeasement is truly a threat to the entire world.

Cognitive Dissonance on the "Gay" Left

I put "gay" in quotes because the "Gay Rights" movement in America, while emphasizing a superficial "pro-gay" agenda, is rooted in Marxism and politically-correct fascism/censorship/thought-control. The rights of gay Americans and all Americans are guaranteed by our Constitution. If an individual's rights are violated - for example if they are barred from a restaurant or physically beaten - it should be dealt with on a case-by-case basis under existing law, regardless of the criminal's motives. People should not be divided into "protected" classes. We earn our rights at birth as American citizens, not as a result of our identification as gay, black, Spanish-speaking, or any other such "granfaloonery".

A gross contradiction of leftist identity politics is demonstrated graphically in this image from a California "anti-war" protest:


Apparently these people are not aware that gays face universal ridicule, torture, beatings and killings in the pre-natal state of "Palestine," while Palestinian Arab gay runaways find refuge on the streets of tolerant Israel. Or perhaps they are aware of the violently anti-gay nature of Islamic societies and their zeal for crushing Israel overrules their respect for logic. I'm not sure which concept is more disturbing.

Today I came across a MEMRI video of a Kuwaiti cleric speaking out about "gay rights" that highlights the same absurd contradictions:




Following are excerpts from an interview with Kuwaiti Islamist Dr. Sa'd Al-'Inzi, which aired on Al-Rai TV on December 10, 2007:


Moderator: Other than life imprisonment and the death sentence, what can be done?

Dr. Sa’d Al-’Inzi: According to Islamic law, a homosexual should be thrown from a tall building.

Moderator: What would you do with them?

Dr. Sa’d Al-’Inzi: To be honest, death is too good for them. They should be gathered in a public place, where they would be flogged and tortured, so the truth about these people is made clear and they serve as a lesson to others, because they are an epidemic plaguing society.

The question of whether gay marriage should be legally equal to straight marriage is a complicated issue that is testing the flexibility of our legal framework. However, the basic human rights of gays in America are not in question. Nor is their right to organize in openly-identified gay groups (whether they be for professional, political, social or any other purposes) questioned. Nor are the rights of adult gays to engage in any sexual, romantic, or domestic pursuits of any kind limited by the enforcement of our laws. The question has come down to whether the union of a homosexual couple should enjoy the same legal recognition as the union of a heterosexual couple.

Compare this to the Islamic world where the basic human rights of gays are forfeit; as a matter of religion, custom and law. Most Islamic countries cite the Koran and Hadith as the basis of their constitutions. Gays are routinely hounded, tortured and killed and the governments as well as the populations of these countries generally approve

The man in the Kuwaiti TV broadcast above called for the universal torture and murder of homosexuals, and not a word of protest has been lodged by any national or international gay organizations. On election day, the citizens of California voted against granting gay couples the same marriage rights as straight couples. In response to this there have been what are essentially riots in the gay community. The far-left often condemns the US government for its "fascist" anti-gay nature, while it defends the real fascists in the Middle East who call openly for the death of homosexuals.

Why are the Islamic gay-bashers favored? Simply because they oppose the US; for the Left, no further examination is required.

Radical Secularism is a Destructive New Religion

I came across this interview with Herbert London, President of the Hudson Institute, that complements the assertions I made in my "Appeal to Intellectually Honest Atheists and Secularists" video:





I'm very careful in trying to assert that it's not secularism itself, since secularism has been a very important anti-toxin against the extremes of religion. I'm talking about a kind of radical secularism - a radical secularism that believes in transnational progressivism, moral relativism, multiculturalism, a loss of confidence in the United States, "scientism" as opposed to science. There are a set of values that have come together and coalesced into what I would describe as a new religion.



Notice he is not by any means advocating a return to fundamentalist religion, but a rejection of the new fundamentalism which is a narrow, exclusive and myopic secularism.

Watch it!

Confront Jihad with the power of your own voice!

I've been inspired to create a new project, and I need your help.

If you are able to speak, you qualify.

Recently I've met a string of fascinating people through my work here on the blog and on YouTube. One of them is a young Iranian who dreams of throwing off the shackles of Islam and restoring Iran to its pre-Islamic glory. I had always hoped that such people existed, but never spoke to them directly. Coincidentally in the same week I've become acquainted with a diverse array of people who sympathize with my outlook: British Persians, Indian Hindus, American Hindus, Jewish Canadians, secular Europeans, gay Americans, all manner of people who are threatened by Islam in one way or another.

I want to hear your testimony about your experiences with Islam. This can be as extreme as living under Shariah-law in an Islamic country, or as mundane as experiencing the gradual politically-correct accommodation of Islam that is creeping into the West.

I want to create a video (or series of videos) using voices from around the world to illustrate the universal threat that Islam poses. You don't need to have an exotic background; everyone's perspective is important and essential to the overall picture.

I am focusing on audio here, because this is a sensitive subject and I suspect many of you would be reluctant to show your face. However, if you do feel comfortable making a video I would be honored to include it in this project!

Read further if you want to get involved...




To join this project please submit an email to occidentalsoapbox[at]yahoo[dot]com with the following info. Please feel free to omit any information that would compromise your security or privacy.


1. NAME: This can be your real first name, internet handle, or completely made up.

2. LOCATION: Where you currently live... this can be continent, country, state, city, whatever level of detail you're comfortable with.

3. ORIGINS: Please indicate if you were born/raised/educated somewhere else, especially if it was in the Islamic world.

4. SUBJECT: Give me an indication of what you'll be talking about. It can be as simple as "growing up as a dhimmi in Egypt" or "taxi experience in Los Angeles," but feel free to expand on your idea as well.

NOTE: I don't want to limit the length, but keep in mind that Youtube videos are limited to 10 minutes and I'd like to include several stories in each video. Keep in mind I may edit for time constraints or to highlight what I think is a particularly powerful passage in your story. I'm running Windows and mp3 would be the easiest format for me to work with.

Please submit only this basic information first so I have an idea of the level of response. I will let you know when to submit an actual file.

Thanks, and I can't wait to see what you come up with! Spread the word.

Neo-Nazis to Lead U.N. Peace Forum

Not quite, but the real headline isn't any less absurd:


Saudi Arabia to Lead U.N. Faith Forum

And those Saudis are really kicking up the tolerance!

The Saudi leader agreed for the first time to dine in the same room with the Israeli president at a private, pre-conference banquet Tuesday hosted by U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. But Ban hinted that the two leaders were not seated at the same table.


Miraculous. So in the same week that the US elected a black president, a Saudi leader lowered himself to sit in the same room (but decidedly not at the same table) as a Jew! What a week for human dignity!

Maybe one day Saudi Arabia will allow non-Muslims to practice their religions openly. And perhaps they will rescind the death sentences customarily given to those who convert away from Islam. And then there's the matter of the apartheid "Muslim-Only" roads:



Still waiting...

Debunking the Messiah (It Ain't Hard)

From "Win One For the Messiah!" by Victor Davis Hanson at National Review Online:


The world may be temporarily awestruck with the wise and all-powerful Obama, but it’s not quite ready to coalesce into a kinder, gentler global family — one people, under one Messiah, indivisible, with peace and justice for all.

...

To the small degree Obama’s superior charm and style will improve things, the Russians may toast, backslap, and bear hug Obama — before seeking to body slam him against the wall on Polish anti-missile sites. The smiling Europeans will scurry around mumbling “Yes, but of course!” — as they shirk even more. An unhinged President Ahmadinejad will endlessly write rambling letters to Barack Hussein Obama as the last centrifuges come on line. The jihadists will sigh rather than swear as they continue to try to blow us all up.

Hamas Met With Obama Advisors in Gaza

Not surprising, but still thoroughly disturbing.

"Hamas says met Obama advisors in Gaza"

Ismail Haniyeh's political advisor says Islamist group met with US president-elect's aides in Strip following online correspondence; 'they told us not to come out with any statements so as not to harm Obama's campaign,' Ahmad Yousuf says

Ahmad Yousuf, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh's political advisor, said that during the recent US presidential race a secret meeting between senior Islamist group figures and advisors to President-elect Barack Obama was held in Gaza.

"We were in contact with a number of Obama's aides through the Internet, and later met with some of them in Gaza, but they advised us not to come out with any statements, as they may have a negative effect on his election campaign and be used by Republican candidate John McCain (to attack Obama)," Yousuf said in an interview with London-based Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat, published Tuesday

Yousuf said Hamas's contact with Obama's advisors was ongoing, adding that he was still on good terms with some of the aides he had befriended while residing in the US.

According to Yousuf, Haniyeh will send Obama a telegram congratulating him on his victory.


This is the first time a jihadist movement, designated by the US State Department as a "foreign terrorist organization," has congratulated a victorious US presidential candidate. Now that's "Change"!

Pompous Old Poseur Gets Booed in Philly


PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Eli Manning threw two TD passes and John Carney kicked two field goals to give the NFC East-leading New York Giants a 20-17 lead over the Philadelphia Eagles at halftime on Sunday night.

The Giants and Eagles played in front of a special guest. Vice President-elect Joe Biden watched the game in a luxury suite with Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie. Biden was booed when he was showed on the video screen.
