AP Media Bias: The Gift That Keeps on Giving

Posted by avideditor on March 31, 2008

Israellycool has more on despicable media bias of AP

AP Media Bias: The Gift That Keeps on Giving: ”

There are certain things in life that are certain. You know, things like death, taxes…AP photographers showing their bias against Israel.

Case in point: here’s AP photographer Muhammed Muheisen on today’s terror attack.

terrorist-body.jpg

The body of a Palestinian is seen, following a knife incident in the West Bank settlement of Shilo, near Nablus, Monday, March 31, 2008. In West Bank violence Monday, a Palestinian who tried to stab Israeli hitchhikers near a Jewish settlement was shot and killed by an armed Israeli civilian, Israeli police said. One of the hitchhikers opened fire after the Palestinian pulled a knife, police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, calling the shooting self-defense. (AP Photo/Muhammed Muheisen)

Leaving aside the fact that he has seen fit to take a picture of the terrorist’s lifeless body, allow me to translate key parts of the caption:

Knife ‘incident’ = terror attack perpetrated with a knife

‘West Bank violence’ = terror attack perpetrated by a palestinian

‘Pulled a knife’ = pulled out a knife to kill

And the cherry on top is the last part of the caption when Muheisen mentions the police spokesman ‘calling the shooting self-defense.’ As if it was something else.

Update: Besides being an AP photographer/propagandist, Muheisen also dabbles in blog commenting.

Puppet Show From Hamas TV Shows Child Stabbing Bush

Posted by avideditor on March 31, 2008

The “Palestinians” are showing the US who they truly are, jihadis. I just hope the US sees this so it stops trying to make Israel give up power to the “Palestinians” which are really just like the 500 million other arabs around Israel and they move there instead of letting them live on more jewish land.

Yes I know this is Hamas TV not from Fatah but Hamas did win the elections and most “palis” support Hamas and there agenda.

Puppet Show From Hamas TV Shows Child Stabbing Bush: ”

He also said that Bush is impure and for that reason is not allowed into the White House because ‘it has been turned into a great mosque for the nation of Islam.’

These are people to whom we send hundreds of millions of dollars in humanitarian aid and want them to have a state of their own.

And the $64K question is: What does CAIR have to say to that?

(FOX News) A children’s puppet show featured on Hamas TV shows a child stabbing President Bush to death.

‘Who are you to come here and threaten me?’ Bush says in the puppet show video. ‘You are on my own turf, you little child, you. Get out.’

The child tells Bush that he killed his father in the Iraq war, which made him an orphan.

‘I have come to take revenge with this sword — revenge for my mother and my sisters,’ the child puppet says. ‘You are a criminal, Bush.’

‘I will kill you, Bush, because that is your fate,’ the child says before stabbing Bush repeatedly.

The show aired on Al-Aqsa TV on March 30.

Khomeini Supporter Appointed Special Agent of UN Human Rights Council

Posted by avideditor on March 31, 2008

It looks like the UN is becoming even more of a jihadi puppet. The US should withdraw from this fraud called the United nations now. Richard A Falk should be arrested and interrogated to find out his terrorist contacts not appointed as a member of the human rights council. I am upset that our tax payer money is being used to fund this anti semitic jihadi organization called the UN.

Khomeini Supporter Appointed Special Agent of UN Human Rights Council: “THe UN appointed an America-hating Ayatollah Khomeini supporter to the UN Human Rights Council. Richard A. Falk, who has compared Israel to the Nazis, was appointed special investigator on Israeli actions in the Palestinian territories.

The Jerusalem Post reported:

The United Nations Human Rights Council on Wednesday appointed American Jewish law professor Richard A. Falk – who has compared Israel to the Nazis – as special investigator on Israeli actions in the territories for a six-year term.Falk, who formerly taught international law at Princeton University, replaces South African professor John Dugard, who was an expert on apartheid.Dugard leaves his post in June after seven years. He made waves when he compared Israeli actions in the territories with apartheid and colonialism.Falk, in his academic writing, has already stated that a Palestinian holocaust was in the making.Yitzhak Levanon, ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, spoke against Falk’s appointment in an address to the council on Wednesday.’In a recent article, [Falk] stated that he did not think it to be ‘an irresponsible overstatement to associate the treatment of Palestinians with the criminalized Nazi record of collective atrocity,’ Levanon said.’He has taken part in a UN fact-finding mission which determined that suicide bombings were a valid method of ‘struggle,” Levanon said.

Falk has a long record of opposing the US and is a supporter of Ayatollah Khomeini:

In Falk’s calculus, the root cause of Islamic terrorist attacks is that ‘the mass of humanity … finds itself under the heels of U.S. economic, military, cultural, and diplomatic power.’ In 1979 he was an enthusiastic supporter of the Ayatollah Khomeni, who he hailed as a ‘liberator’ of Iran. Falk continues to invariably side with America’s foes in international disputes.

Carl in Jerusalem has more on the latest outrageous move by the UN.”

Israel plans homes in West Bank

Posted by Rodan on March 31, 2008

Good news from my Israeli allies!

http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/5202af28-ff46-11dc-b556-000077b07658.html?nclick_check=1

Israel has every right to build homes on the West Bank, Oops I meant Judea-Samaria. That land has been Jewish for 4,ooo years. As a Catholic Zionist, I support Israel to build on land that God gave them. Israelis must never forget that God is the only one that has their backs. They mustn’t rely on any nation, that includes America.

The Palestininans, Oops sorry Islamic occupiers are descended from Jihad invaders of the 7th Century who drove my Roman ancestors from that territory. The Christian “Arabs” of that region aren’t Arabs. They are descended of Roman and Greek Colonists of Israel. The Media doesn’t report these historical truths. The Bible clearly states that God gave Israel to the Jews. Any Christian or Jew that denies this is a fake and doesn’t deserve this label.

Israel, build away and keep building! It’s you land and only God can take it!

Rice’s betrayal of Israel

Posted by avideditor on March 31, 2008

Read Caroline Glick most recent piece on Condoleezza Rice.

Rice’s betrayal of Israel

“In her monthly trip to Israel and the Palestinian Authority next week, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice is expected to criticize Israel for its announced plan to build new housing for Jews in Jerusalem. Referring to the government’s plans in a recent tour of the city, U.S. Ambassador Richard Jones said that as far as the U.S. was concerned, the fact that there is a housing shortage for Jewish families in the city was no reason to build new housing.’Building homes for Jews in Jerusalem, the ambassador intimated, is a provocative act that will endanger prospects for peace with the Palestinians. Consequently, the ambassador suggested, Jews will just have to leave the city.‘Sometimes people do have to move to a different location,’ he explained. ‘They cannot always stay close to their families.’Also during her visit, Rice will call for Israel to ease up on its counter-terror operations in Judea and Samaria in order to ratchet up the Egyptian-sponsored, U.S.-supported negotiations toward a cease-fire agreement between Israel and Hamas. Moreover, Rice is expected to pressure the Olmert-Livni-Barak government to move ahead with destroying Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria that have been built since 2001.Rice will take these steps as she calls for Israel and the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority in Judea and Samaria to abide by their obligations to the 2003 ‘road map’ plan for the establishment of a Palestinian state in Judea, Samaria, Gaza and Jerusalem. She will note that such actions are in accordance with the joint Israeli-Palestinian declaration announced at the conclusion of December’s Annapolis conference.All of Rice’s moves will come against the backdrop of intensified negotiations in Yemen between Fatah and Hamas toward the reestablishment of their unity government. That government collapsed last June following Hamas’s takeover of the Gaza Strip. It was the collapse of the unity government that enabled Rice to organize the Annapolis conference, which was based on the assumption that Fatah leader Mahmoud Abbas would fight Hamas and refuse to reunite forces with the Iranian and Syrian-sponsored jihadist movement.Her statements will also come two weeks after it was first reported that Abbas has called on so-called Palestinian refugees to march on Israel’s borders with Lebanon, Gaza, Jordan and Syria on Israel’s 60th Independence Day; and for Americans, Canadians and Europeans of Palestinian descent to charter flights and passenger ships to arrive in Israel the same day. The stated purpose of’Abbas’s plan is to force Israel to accept millions of foreign-born, hostile Arabs into its territory in order to overwhelm Israel demographically and so destroy its Jewish character.Rice’s visit next week, then, will be a direct continuation of her last visit here on March 4. At that time, Rice forced the Olmert-Livni-Barak government to end IDF offensive operations against Hamas in Gaza. As the Israeli media have since reported, Hamas is exploiting the cease-fire to augment its control over all aspects of life in Gaza and to expand its arsenal and military capabilities against Israel.To cite just one example, Hamas has reportedly completed its takeover of 8 out of the 22 medical facilities in Gaza. Through actions such as this, it is rendering the civilian population completely dependent on its Islamist largesse to receive basic services.Rice’s visit comes ten days after Lt. General William Fraser’s trip to Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Fraser was appointed by Rice to act as judge of Israeli and Palestinian compliance with the road map in accordance with the Annapolis declaration. Fraser’s visit was boycotted by Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak, who absented himself from the meeting with Fraser and Fatah Prime Minister Salam Fayyad due to the overtly anti-Israel positions adopted by Fraser and his colleagues during Rice’s visit. Fraser reportedly attacked Barak and the IDF for scuttling his plans to expand Fatah military control over Judea and Samaria by insisting on fighting terrorists in the areas.Fraser, like Rice, attacks Israel while stubbornly ignoring clear evidence of Fatah involvement in terror and Abbas’s open radicalization in the lead-up to the March 29 Arab League summit in Damascus where Fatah and Hamas leaders are expected to announce their efforts to reinstate their unity government. Indeed, even when US officials acknowledge that Fatah is not fighting terror effectively, they assert that the remedy is to give Fatah more arms and control over more territory.Rice’s heavy-handed policy toward Israel amounts to a betrayal of Israel on two levels. First, as Rick Richman wrote last week on the American Thinker website, Rice’s current policy of demanding that Israel dismantle Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria, freeze all building activities for Jews beyond the 1949 armistice lines including in Jerusalem and the major settlement blocs, and refrain from taking any major offensive actions against Palestinian terror groups is a complete betrayal of President Bush’s signed April 14, 2004 pledge to then-prime minister Ariel Sharon.Bush’s’letter, which came after Sharon laid out his plan to destroy all Israeli communities in Gaza and withdraw Israeli forces from the region and to similarly destroy Israel communities in northern Samaria, made clear that the U.S. views a Palestinian commitment to combat terror, end incitement and dismantle terror groups and cells as the first stage of any further peace process between Israel and the Palestinians. Bush also explicitly stated that the U.S. did not think it reasonable to expect that Israel would remove itself to the 1949 armistice lines in any future peace.In advancing the Annapolis summit, Rice openly betrayed Bush’s written pledge to Sharon, which was followed by a Congressional resolution in June 2004 explicitly approving the letter’s contents. Rice has delighted in this betrayal by claiming that the Annapolis platform broke the ‘tight sequentiality’ dictated by the road map. That ‘tight seqentiality’ dictated that before Israel would negotiate a final peace with the Palestinians, the Palestinians would first cease to harbor, support and train terrorists, end their war against Israel and end their anti-Israel incitement activities.It should be noted that in betraying the word of her boss, Rice was amply assisted by the feckless Olmert-Livni-Barak government. In an effort to divert public attention from the government’s incompetent leadership during the Second Lebanon War, Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and his colleagues sought to shore up their support base among Israel’s leftist elites by renewing negotiations with Fatah.Naively, Olmert, Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni and Barak assumed that their willingness to engage Rice’s obsessive interest in advancing negotiations would satisfy her yearning to be viewed as a peacemaker. They may have been under the impression that for Rice the negotiations are as much of a public relations stunt as they are for them. Certainly they must have expected that she would exhibit an understanding of Israel’s security predicament, surrounded as it is by Iranian proxies in Gaza, Lebanon and Syria and a radicalized Palestinian population in Judea, Samaria and Jerusalem.Yet this was not in the cards. Rather than acknowledge reality, Rice has pushed on with her policies to the point where not only Bush’s own commitments to Israel fail to constitute a bar against her actions, human decency and basic logic have been discarded.In her race to establish a Palestinian state, Rice has not only failed to recognize the threat posed to Israeli security — and indeed to global security — by the Hamas-controlled Gaza Strip and the terror and jihad-laced Fatah movement. She has also embraced the wholly false and morally outrageous claim that the construction (or existence) of Jewish communities beyond the 1949 armistice lines is as much a threat to peace as Palestinian terror attacks against Israelis and anti-Israel incitement at all levels of Palestinian society, both in Hamas and Fatah dominated areas.In an attempt to preempt Rice’s expected animosity in her upcoming visit, Barak announced he would scale back IDF counter-terror operations in Judea and Samaria by taking down a roadblock and easing the travel of Palestinian businessmen and senior officials. The fact that such moves imperil Israeli security was made clear on March 18. That day, senior Fatah official and former interim PA president Rauhi Fattouh was stopped at the Allenby Bridge crossing point from Jordan as he attempted to exploit his travel privileges to import contraband into the PA. Israeli security forces seized 3,000 cellular telephones hidden in his vehicle.Israeli officials’ continued attempts to appease Rice’are not only counterproductive because of the immediate security breaches caused by such appeasement. By showing that they will bow to Rice’s pressure, which is exerted in contempt of signed U.S. commitments to Israel, the Olmert-Livni-Barak government signals both to the next U.S. administration and to the Palestinians that they have no reason to abide by their word to the Jewish state.Originally published in The Jewish Press.“(Via Caroline Glick.)</

UPDATE: Rice wins [more] concessions from Israel !!

Posted by avideditor on March 30, 2008

more bad news. I can’t believe Israel is giving in to Rice or that she is representing the American people. Rice is a jihadi stooge and must be stopped.

UPDATE: Rice wins [more] concessions from Israel !!: ”

Just last month,

In an interview with the Jordanian daily al-Dustur, Abbas said that he was opposed to an armed struggle against Israel – for the time being.

‘At this present juncture, I am opposed to armed struggle because we cannot succeed in it, but maybe in the future things will be different,’ he said.

Pal_w_key

Associated Press:

Israel and the Palestinians agreed Sunday to a series of ‘concrete steps’ aimed at paving the way for a final peace agreement later this year, beginning with Israel’s pledge to remove some West Bank roadblocks.

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, visiting the region for the second time this month in hopes of energize faltering talks, said the moves ‘constitute a very good start to improving’ a Palestinian economy crippled by the Israeli restrictions.

Under the plan that Rice announced, Israel will remove about 50 roadblocks, upgrade checkpoints to speed up the movement of Palestinians through the West Bank and give Palestinians more security responsibility in the town of Jenin with an eye toward looking at ‘other areas in turn.’

The Israelis also pledged to increase the number of travel and work permits it gives Palestinians and to support economic projects in Palestinian towns.

In return, the Palestinians promised to improve policing of Jenin ‘to provide law and order, and work to prevent terror,’ according to a State Department statement released shortly before Rice spoke….

‘We’ve been told that this is going to start and, hopefully even be completed in a relatively short period of time,’ Rice told reporters. ‘I am expecting it to happen very, very soon.’

‘We will be monitoring and verifying,’ she added.

The agreement includes:

  • removing 50 travel barriers in and around Jenin, Tulkarem, Qalqiliya and Ramallah.
  • dismantling of one permanent roadblock.
  • deploying 700 Jordanian-trained Palestinian police in Jenin and allowing them to take delivery of armored vehicles.
  • raising the number of Palestinian businessmen allowed into Israel to 1,500 from 1,000.
  • increasing the number of work permits for Palestinian laborers by 5,000 from its current number of 18,500.
  • building new housing for Palestinians in 25 villages.
  • connecting Palestinian villages to the Israeli power grid.
  • Israeli support for large-scale economic development programs and encouragement of foreign investment.

Palestinian ‘businessmen’ ? Who woulda thunk it?

Pals_take_a_rest_graffiti_says_pale
… graffiti says ‘Palestine’ …

Just one question. Why is it that housing for Arabs is part and parcel of the ‘peace process,’ but housing for Jews is an ‘obstacle to peace’ ??

I guess everyone is assuming that Jews have no future in a post-peace-process world.

Gd forbid.

Islam – be offended!

Posted by avideditor on March 30, 2008

Islam – be offended!: “




‘The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive
after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or
have their hands and feet on alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of
the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter
theirs will be an awful doom.’

Vatican: Islam is the world’s largest religion

Posted by avideditor on March 30, 2008

The dark is rising. Expect an increased number of terrorist attacks and rioting over comics.

Vatican: Islam is the world’s largest religion: “”

Islam has surpassed Roman Catholicism as the world’s largest religion, the Vatican newspaper said Sunday.
“For the first time in history, we are no longer at the top: Muslims have overtaken us,” Monsignor Vittorio Formenti said in an interview with the Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano. Formenti compiles the Vatican’s yearbook.
He said that Catholics accounted for 17.4 percent of the world population – a stable percentage – while Muslims were at 19.2 percent.
“It is true that while Muslim families, as is well known, continue to make a lot of children, Christian ones on the contrary tend to have fewer and fewer,” the monsignor said.

Obama marched with Farrakhan

Posted by avideditor on March 30, 2008

It looks like Obama is finally getting exposed for what he really thinks.

Obama marched with Farrakhan: ”

Can this get any worse? Post below lifted from Weekly Standard. See the original for links

Hugh Hewitt links a 1995 profile of Obama in the Chicago Reader. It’s worth reading in full. He shares his views on black churches and the Christian Right, and he makes clear his preference for ‘collective action’ over individualism. And at the end, after discussing his participation in Minister Farrakhan’s Million Man March:

‘But cursing out white folks is not going to get the job done. Anti-Semitic and anti-Asian statements are not going to lift us up. We’ve got some hard nuts-and-bolts organizing and planning to do. We’ve got communities to build.’

It doesn’t seem like Barack had any real problem with cursing out white folks or making anti-Semitic and anti-Asian statements, it’s just not as productive as he’d like. It’s the same when he discusses the ‘wonderful preachers’ in Chicago. ‘As soon as church lets out,’ he says, ‘the energy dissipates.’ You see it’s not enough to just say ‘God Damn America’ on Sunday, you have to organize your community and get on with the damning come Monday.

Update: Since Hugh’s linked back here…in response to his question (’Did many mainstream Dems join that march?’), the short answer is no. Only two members of Congress attended, as did a couple of mayors (including Marion Barry), Rev. Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton. President Clinton gave a speech endorsing the goals of the march, but condemning its organizer.

At the time Clinton said ‘One million men are right to be standing up for personal responsibility, but one million men do not make right one man’s message of malice and division.’ He did not refer to Farrakhan by name, but in retrospect this looks like pretty strong stuff compared to Obama’s ‘Anti-Semitic and anti-Asian statements are not going to lift us up.’ And of course Clinton didn’t actually attend the march.

Israel pledges to remove 50 West Bank roadblocks

Posted by avideditor on March 30, 2008

I think this is a mistake. Israel should be putting up more roadblocks to protect its people instead of taking them down. If any terrorist gets through the government that is allowing the decrease of security measures is going to have more blood on its hands.

'Israel pledges to remove 50 West Bank roadblocks': “THE JERUSALEM POST
Mar. 30, 2008

Israel and the Palestinians on Sunday agreed to a series of ‘concrete steps’ aimed at paving the way for a final peace agreement later this year, beginning with a pledge to remove some 50 roadblocks in the West Bank, US officials said.

The officials, traveling with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, also said the Palestinians had agreed to step up their efforts to ‘prevent terror’ in the West Bank.

The US issued its statement after Rice met with Defense Minister Ehud Barak and Palestinian Authority Prime Minister Salaam Fayad in Jerusalem. It said the two men had agreed on ‘concrete steps’ to implement the road map. ‘This is a program that will improve the daily lives of Palestinians and help make Israel secure,’ the statement said.

It continued by saying Israel would remove about 50 roadblocks and take other immediate steps to speed up the movement of Palestinians through other West Bank travel barriers. It did not say which roadblocks would be removed, saying only that Israel would focus on ‘points of special immediate emphasis.’

In its statement, the US said Barak and Fayad agreed Palestinian security forces in the West Bank must assume ‘greater responsibility.’

The statement added the Palestinians would soon deploy additional security forces in the West Bank town of Jenin and ‘work to prevent terror.’

Last week, Barak said he had agreed to let the Palestinians deploy some 600 Jordanian-trained officers in the West Bank town.

The statement also said the two sides agreed Sunday to take new steps to promote economic development in the West Bank.

Among the new measures are plans to build new housing for Palestinians in 25 villages, connecting Palestinian villages to the Israeli power grid and an agreement by Israel to allow larger numbers of Palestinian laborers and businessmen to work inside Israel.

‘We all want to work hard for the improvements that can lead to a successful conclusion of the Annapolis process,’ said Rice at a press conference with Barak and Fayad following their meeting.

‘We have just had a very good meeting. We are discussing the situation on the ground and the importance of improvement in that situation along the lines of one of the Annapolis tracks. I am pleased to say that the two gentlemen have met before I was here and they have said they will continue to meet as is necessary,’ continued the secretary of state.

More Iranian Weapons found in Iraq

Posted by avideditor on March 30, 2008

I have found this informative article on Atlas Shrugs 

More Iranian Weapons found in Iraq: “

Iran_weapons_iraqForgive me if I repeat myself, Bill Rogggio has the report over at The Long War – by G-d without men like Roggio and Totten where would we get the news over there? Read the whole thing here. (hat tip rut)
Iran establishedthe Ramazan Corps in western Iran to manage the covert war inside Iraq inearly 2003. The Ramazan Corps is an arm of Qods Force, the special operationsbranch of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps. The Ramazan Corps isresponsible for smuggling weapons and cash into the Mahdi Army and the SpecialGroups terror cells, as well as recruiting and training Iraqi operatives.

I said this last week and I will say it again. Everyone is talking about should we or shouldn’t we go to war with Iran, take out their nukes. The thing is, IRAN IS ALREADY AT WAR WITH US waging it the most effective way they know, through Iranian foreign legions (Hamas, Hezb’Allah) and their proxy Syria.Just because we (in the West) wont acknowledge it, or prefer toignore it, doesnt mean it doesnt exist. It means you forfeit. In anybattle, war or any ‘competition’, if you fail to show up, you lose.Israel is the merely the club Islam chooses to bat about the head of the US (and the West)

Boycott the United Nations!

Posted by avideditor on March 30, 2008

The United Nations supports dictators and fascism while oppressing free speech and liberty. The purpose that it was created for has been usurped by Islamo-fasicst. Any organization that condemns Israel for defending itself but can not condemn the murder of innocent children studying in a yeshiva by terrorist should not exist or be supported. Doesn’t anyone else find it strange that jihadis have transformed a world body created to prevent another world war into an organization that passes judgment on movies and issues bizarre decrees like calling zionist racist.

I don’t agree with everything from the site bellow but I think they are right on with this article.

Boycott the United Nations!: “The Fjordman Report
The noted blogger Fjordman is filing this report via Gates of Vienna.
For a complete Fjordman blogography, see The Fjordman Files. There is also a multi-index listing here.


Ban Ki-MoonThe United Nation’sSecretary-General Ban Ki-moon condemned Wilder’s movie Fitna as ‘offensively anti-Islamic,’ and said that ‘There is no justification for hate speech or incitement to violence.’ Does that mean that the UN is now going to ban the Koran, which does both? As Robert Spencer commented, ‘What exactly is ‘hate speech’ about quoting Qur’an verses and then showing Muslim preachers using those verses to exhort people to commit acts of violence, as well as violent acts committed by Muslims inspired by those verses and others?’

Earlier in March, the U.N. Human Rights Council, which is dominated by Muslim countries, passed a resolution saying it is deeply concerned about the defamation of religions and urging governments to prohibit it. The only religion specified is Islam. The document was put forward by the Organization of the Islamic Conference, the largest voting bloc at the UN, sponsored by Saudi money.

I have been saying for a long time that trying to export ‘democracy’ to Islamic countries is pointless. Islam can be compatible with ‘democracy’ in the limited sense of voting rights and majority rule, but this has never automatically implied individual liberty. (See my online booklet Is Islam Compatible With Democracy?)

It’s a sick joke that American soldiers are bleeding literally and American taxpayers financially to export ‘democracy’ to Iraq while Muslims are exporting sharia to us. Freedom is free speech, that’s the simplest, and maybe the truest, definition of it. Muslims are trying to use the UN to limit free speech across the world, which basically means putting the entire world under Islamic rule.

My view of the United Nations is quite clear: It is at best irrelevant. At best.

Burning flagsIncreasingly, it is turning into an outright enemy, an enemy funded by us but used to attack us. I don’t know about anybody else, but I’m goddam tired of sponsoring enemies, at home and abroad. I’m all for boycotting the UN and making it truly irrelevant by bleeding it dry for funds and ultimately withdrawing from it.

Even if we are in a weak phase, which we are, we are still a civilization of vastly superior resources. Muslims have lots of oil and lots of babies and lots of aggression, but that’s all they have. Otherwise, they’re a spectacular failure. We need them for very little. They need us for virtually everything. Their greatest flaw is their arrogance. Muslims are arrogant losers.

We should exploit that. We should separate ourselves from the Islamic world as much as possible. They will suffer far more from this than we will. We can start by boycotting the UN, which is now little more than a tool for global sharia, and the Arab Muslims of the West Bank and Gaza, who reinvented themselves as ‘Palestinians’ and started whining at the UN after the Israelis kicked their collective behinds in 1967.

Mahathir MohamadI notice former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad calls upon Muslims worldwide to boycott Dutch products. I’m all for boycotts of and by Muslims. The more, the merrier. In case somebody forgot, Mr. Mahathir held the notorious speech at the OIC conference in 2003, where he said that the Jews rule the world by proxy and that Muslims must unite to achieve a final victory over them. Not everybody remembers that he also boasted about the age when’Europeans had to kneel at the feet of Muslim scholars in order to access their own scholastic heritage.’

Somebody should remind him that the so-called ‘golden age’ of Islam was a result of a still-majority or near-majority non-Muslim population. As soon as that majority declined, due to harassment and discrimination, the Islamic world never recovered. Malaysia is sometimes portrayed as an economically successful Muslim nation, but that is because it only recently became majority Muslim and still has a large Chinese, Indian and other non-Muslim minority. Since Islam is becoming more aggressive and Muslims increase discrimination of non-Muslims, infidels will leave, and Malaysia will gradually be reduced to just another failed sharia state.

We should all be happy if Muslims boycott us. When they feel so unwelcome that they stop coming to our countries, we will be making progress.

Some older posts on the subject:

Recommendations for the West

The best way to deal with the Islamic world is to have as little to do with it as possible. We should ban Muslim immigration. This could be done in creative and indirect ways, such as banning immigration from nations with citizens known to be engaged in terrorist activities. We should remove all Muslim non-citizens currently in the West. We should also change our laws to ensure that Muslim citizens who advocate sharia, preach Jihad, the inequality of ‘infidels’ and of women should have their citizenship revoked and be deported back to their country of origin.

The muezzinsWe need to create an environment where the practice of Islam is made difficult. Muslim citizens should be forced to either accept our secular ways or leave if they desire sharia. Much of this can be done in a non-discriminatory way, by simply refusing to allow special pleading to Muslims. Do not allow the Islamic public call to prayer as it is offensive to other faiths. All children, boys and girls should take part in all sporting and social activities of the school and the community. The veil should be banned in all public institutions, thus also contributing to breaking the traditional subjugation of women. Companies and public buildings should not be forced to build prayer rooms for Muslims. Enact laws to eliminate the abuse of family reunification laws. Do not permit major investments by Muslims in Western media or universities.

Oxen in YemenRight now, Muslims can enjoy the best of both worlds: Following medieval religious laws while enjoying the fruits of 21st century civilization. We need to drive home the utter failure of the Islamic model by making sure that Muslims should no longer able to count on permanent Western or infidel aid in their overpopulated, self-primitivized states, whose very unviability they are prevented from recognizing by this constant infusion of aid.

I’m advocating isolating the Islamic world, not the West. Even if we cannot allow all non-Muslims to freely settle in our lands, this does not mean that they have to be our enemies. Jihad is being waged against the entire non-Muslim world, not just the West. We should stop trying to ‘win the hearts and minds’ of Muslims and start reaching out to non-Muslims.

No to the EUSSR!For Europe, the most important thing to do right now is to dismantle the European Union in its present form, and regain national control over our borders and our legislation. The EU is so deeply flawed as an organization, and so heavily infiltrated by Eurabian and pro-Islamic thinking that it simply cannot be reformed. And let’s end the stupid support for the Palestinians that the Eurabians have encouraged, and start supporting our cultural cousin, Israel.

Why the Future May Not Belong to Islam

Seaborne believes that many people are underestimating the strength of Islam. Perhaps, but some observers, including Mark Steyn and Mr. Seaborne himself, may be overestimating it. They overlook the fact that Islam has many weaknesses, too. Don’t underestimate your enemy. Muslims should be credited for making clever use of our weaknesses, but this ‘we’re all doomed and have already lost’ theme is overblown.

We should implement a policy of containment of the Islamic world. I’m not saying that containment is all that we will ever need to do, but it is the very minimum that is acceptable. Perhaps the spread of nuclear weapons technology, the darkest side of globalization, will trigger a large-scale war with the Islamic world at some point. The only way to avoid this is to take steps, including military ones, to deprive Muslims of such technology.

We should restrain their ability to hurt us physically. We can’t prevent it completely, but we should limit it as much as possible. Muslims try to wear us down through terrorism. They should be worn down through mockery and criticism. We should also make clear that for every Islamic terror attack we will increase these efforts, which Muslims fear more than our weapons. It’s the new balance of terror.

Koenraad ElstDr Koenraad Elst, one of Belgium’s best orientalists, thinks ‘Islam is in decline, despite its impressive demographic and military surge’ — which according to Dr Elst is merely a ‘last upheaval.’ He acknowledges, however, that this decline can take some time (at least in terms of the individual human life span) and that it is possible that Islam will succeed in becoming the majority religion in Europe before collapsing.

Dalrymple is probably correct when he says that Islam is an ‘all or nothing’ religion which cannot be secularized. The future may not belong to Islam, as Mark Steyn suggests. It is conceivable that Islam in some generations will cease to be a global force of any significance, but in the meantime it will be a constant source of danger to its neighbors, from Europe through India to Southeast Asia. The good news is that Islam may not be able to achieve the world dominance it desires. The bad news is that it may be able to achieve a world war. We can only cage it as much as possible and try to prevent this from happening.

Farewell to the United Nations?

David LittmanHistorian David Littman is a representative to the United Nations (Geneva) of the Association for World Education. He has spent years tracking the rise of Islamic influence at the UN. According to him, ‘In recent years, representatives of some Muslim states have demanded, and often received, special treatment at the United Nations.’ ‘As a result, non-diplomatic terms such as ‘blasphemy’ and ‘defamation of Islam’ have seeped into the United Nations system, leading to a situation in which non-Muslim governments accept certain rules of conduct in conformity with Islamic law (the Shari’a) and acquiesce to a self-imposed silence regarding topics touching on Islam.’

I do not have all the answers to how such a post-UN world will be like. The most important principle at this point is to isolate and contain the Islamic world. We simply cannot allow our enemies to have direct influence over our policies, which they partly do have through the UN. Is it unrealistic to talk about the collapse of the EU and the UN? I don’t know. The UN was created in the aftermath of WW2. It survived the Cold War, but now we are rapidly entering into a new world war. My bet is that we will see huge changes in world affairs in the near future, at least as large as those which laid the foundations for the UN to begin with. Whatever usefulness the UN may have had was lost decades ago. It is today of little use to us, but of significant use to our enemies. The time has come to say farewell to the United Nations.

Convention of Black Churches PRAISE OBAMAs Minister

Posted by avideditor on March 30, 2008

Convention of Black Churches PRAISE OBAMAs Minister: “

If Martin Luther King Jr. were pastoring a church today, it would look very much like Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Ill., and the sermons you would hear him preach would sound very much’ like Wright’s, Rev. Frederick Haynes III, senior pastor at Friendship West Baptist Church, said.

I very much doubt Rev Haynes, I think if Rev King were a alive today he would be slapping Wright across the face for being such a hate monger. On Friday night Wright was scheduled to be honored at the State of the Black Church Summit, sponsored by Fort Worth’s Brite Divinity School, but he didn’t attend because of security reasons. But the love for Senator Obama’s mentor was still there. At least I think so, is this the week Obama cannot disassociate himself from Wright or is it the week that he throws Wright under the bus—I get so confused sometimes:


Black summit pastors defend Obama preacher

Democrat presidential contender Barack Obama may have distanced himself from his former pastor after video clips many criticized as hateful and racist were broadcast by the media, but a group of influential black ministers and religious scholars are refusing to budge, saying Rev. Jeremiah Wright is only ‘guilty of loving the United States enough to tell the truth.’

Wright had been scheduled for several months to be honored at the State of the Black Church Summit last night, sponsored by Fort Worth’s Brite Divinity School, located on the campus of Texas Christian University, but the retired Chicago pastor announced he would not attend over security concerns. Wright also declined to attend a banquet tonight in his honor, since moved to Paul Quinn College in Dallas for security reasons, reported the Fort Worth Star-Telegram..

While most of the summit was not open to the media, about 20 attending pastors and scholars held a news conference today at Dallas’ Friendship West Baptist Church to defend Wright and the black church.

‘What is eminently clear is the degree to which the black church is still largely misunderstood and routinely caricatured in U.S. popular culture. … We now realize why the 11 o’clock hour on Sunday is the most segregated hour of the week,’ said Stacey Floyd-Thomas, who teaches ethics and directs black church studies at Brite.

‘It’s news to you,’ she said. ‘Black America has long known about the tradition of religious formation within mainline white congregations. Now, for the very first time in history, mainline America, white America is finding out something about its black church.’

Wright’s sermons, the summit pastors said, were a continuation of the same long-standing black tradition of ‘prophetic preaching’ that produced Dr. Martin Luther King.

‘If Martin Luther King Jr. were pastoring a church today, it would look very much like Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago, Ill., and the sermons you would hear him preach would sound very much’ like Wright’s, Rev. Frederick Haynes III, senior pastor at Friendship West Baptist Church, said.

King, Floyd-Thomas noted, once called America ‘the greatest purveyor of violence in the world today,’ adding that the slain civil rights leader had been scheduled to deliver a sermon titled ‘Why America May Go to Hell’ on the Sunday after he was assassinated in 1968, the Dallas Morning News reported.

‘Standing in the rich tradition of the African-American church, if he is guilty of anything, this loving father, this prophetic pastor, this former U.S. Marine is guilty of loving the United States enough to tell the truth,’ she said.

Also speaking on behalf of the embattled pastor was his cousin Rev. Dennis Wiley of Covenant Baptist Church in Washington, D.C., who defended Wright’s sermons, noting that when he speaks, ‘he has done his research. He will not just talk off the top of his head.’

As WND has reported, Wright used his pulpit to accuse the U.S. of knowing about the planned attack on Pearl Harbor prior to the 1941 Japanese attack and to blame the government for developing the HIV virus to target blacks.

‘We have learned in recent days that you cannot reduce any black church to a monolith, much less a sound bite,’ said Haynes, who charged the press with reducing the black church to a stereotype.

‘We recognize that the body of the work of Jeremiah Wright Jr. is not limited to a sound bite that has been taken out of context for the political pretext of those who have agendas that are contrary to the healing of our nation,’ he said.

Haynes, who is a close friend of Wright, said he had spoken by phone with the former pastor Thursday night and said Wright and his family are hurt by the media coverage.

‘He’s very human,’ Haynes said. ‘He’s hurt that the portrayal in the media has his daughters crying.’

Sorry OBAMA, Sunnis and The Shiites HAVE Been Allies in Terrorist Acts

Posted by avideditor on March 29, 2008

Yid with a Lid shows how Obama is clueless in regard to foreign policy. I think he listens too much to far left loons like his preacher.

Sorry OBAMA, Sunnis and The Shiites HAVE Been Allies in Terrorist Acts: “It is well known that the Sunni and Shiite Muslims hate each other even more than Hilary Clinton hates the truth. Even Barack Obama knows that. So when John McCain made what was perceived as a gaffe, mixing up Sunni and Shiite its no wonder that the Senator is harping on it to try to get out from under the scandals surrounding the hatred spewing from his campaign including his Anti-American preacher and his Anti-Semitic military adviser and campaign co-Chair Merrill A. McPeak (pictured left).

The real issue, ignored by Barry Obama is the question of whether it was a gaffe at all. You see there is one thing that the Sunni’s and The Shiites hate more than each other and that is the Great Satan, the United States of America. And more times that the Jr Senator from Illinois would want to admit, the Sunni’s and Shiites have teamed up to commit terrorist acts:

The Sunni-Shiite Terror Network

By AMIR TAHERI

March 29, 2008

The American presidential election campaign took a bizarre theological turn recently when Barack Obama accused John McCain of not being able to distinguish Sunnis from Shiites.

The exchange started when Sen. McCain suggested that the Islamic Republic in Iran, a Shiite power, may be helping al Qaeda, a Sunni outfit, in its murderous campaign in Iraq and elsewhere. Basing its position on received wisdom, the Obama camp implied that Sunnis and Shiites, divided as they are by deep doctrinal differences, could not come together to fight the United States and its allies.

The truth is that Sunni and Shiite extremists have always been united in their hatred of the U.S., and in their desire to ‘bring it to destruction,’ in the words of Taliban leader Mullah Muhammad Omar.

The majority of Muslims does not share that hatred and have no particular problem with the U.S. It is the country most visited by Muslim tourists and it attracts the largest number of Muslim students studying abroad.

But to understand the problem with extremists, it is important to set aside the Sunni-Shiite divide and focus on their common hatred of America. Theology is useless here. What we are dealing with is politics.

For Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini, the slogan ‘Death to America’ was as important as the traditional device of Islam ‘Allah Is The Greatest’ – hence his insistence that it be chanted at all public meetings and repeated after each session of the daily prayers. And to that end, Khomeinists have worked with anyone, including brother-enemy Sunnis or even Marxist atheists.

The suicide attacks that claimed the lives of over 300 Americans, including 241 Marines, in Lebanon in 1983, were joint operations of the Khomeinist Hezbollah and the Marxist Arab Socialist Party, which was linked to the Syrian intelligence services. The Syrian regime is Iran’s closest ally, despite the fact that Iranian mullahs regard the Alawite minority that dominates it as heretics or worse. Today in Lebanon, Tehran’s surrogate, Hezbollah, is in league with a Maronite Christian faction, led by ex-Gen. Michel Aoun, in opposition to a majority bloc that favors close ties with the U.S.

For more than a quarter century, Tehran has been host to the offices of more than three dozen terrorists organizations, from the Colombian FARC to the Palestinian Hamas and passing by half a dozen Trotskyite and Leninist outfits. It also finances many anti-American groups and parties of both extreme right and extreme left in Europe and the Americas. Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has bestowed the Muslim title of ‘brother’ on Cuba’s Fidel Castro, Venezuela’s Hugo Chávez, Bolivia’s Evo Morales and Nicaragua’s Daniel Ortega. Communist North Korea is the only country with which the Islamic Republic maintains close military-industrial ties and holds joint annual staff sessions.

George Ibrahim Abdallah, the Lebanese maverick who led a campaign of terror in Paris in the 1980s on behalf of Tehran, was a Christian. So was Anis Naqqache, who led several hit-teams sent to kill Iranian exile opposition leaders. For years, and until a recent change of policy, TehranTurkish Republic. Why? Tehran’s displeasure with Turkish membership of NATO and friendship with the U.S. financed and offered shelter to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), a Marxist movement fighting to overthrow the

Yes, Mr. Obama might ask, but what about Sunni-Shiite cooperation?

The Islamic Republic has financed and armed the Afghan Sunni Hizb Islami (Islamic Party) since the 1990s. It’s also financed the Front for Islamic Salvation (FIS), a Sunni political-terrorist outfit in Algeria between 1992 and 2005.

In 1993, a senior Iranian delegation, led by the then Islamic Parliament Speaker Ayatollah Mehdi Karrubi, attended the Arab-Muslim Popular Congress organized by Hassan al-Turabi, nicknamed ‘The Pope of Islamist Terror,’ in Khartoum. At the end of this anti-American jamboree a nine-man ‘Coordinating Committee’ was announced. Karrubi was a member, along with such Sunni eminences as Osama Bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Mr. Turabi and the Algerian Abdallah Jaballah. The fact that Karrubi was a Shiite mullah did not prevent him from sitting alongside Sunni sheikhs.

In 1996, a suicide attack claimed the lives of 19 American servicemen in Al Khobar, eastern Saudi Arabia. The operation was carried out by the Hezbollah in Hejaz, an Iranian-financed outfit, with the help of the Sunni militant group ‘Sword of the Peninsula.’

In 2000, Sunni groups linked to al Qaeda killed 17 U.S. servicemen in a suicide attack on USS Cole off the coast of Yemen. This time, a Shiite militant group led by Sheikh al-Houti, Tehran’s man in Yemen, played second fiddle in the operation.

In Central Asia’s Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, Tehran has for years supported two Sunni movements, the Rastakhiz Islami (Islamic Awakening) and Hizb Tahrir Islami (Islamic Liberation Party). In Azerbaijan, a former Soviet republic, Tehran supports the Sunni Taleshi groups against the Azeri Shiite majority. The reason? The Taleshi Sunnis are pro-Russian and anti-American, while the Shiite Azeris are pro-American and anti-Russian.

There are no Palestinian Shiites, yet Tehran has become the principal source of funding for radical Palestinian Sunni groups, notably Hamas, Islamic Jihad and half a dozen leftist-atheist minigroups. Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh refuses to pray alongside his Iranian hosts during his visits to Tehran. But when it comes to joining Khomeinist crowds in shouting ‘Death to America’ he is in the forefront.

With Arab oil kingdoms no longer as generous as before, Iran has emerged as the chief source of funding for Hamas. The new Iranian budget, coming into effect on March 21, allocates over $2 billion to the promotion of ‘revolutionary causes.’ Much of the money will go to Hamas and the Lebanese branch of Hezbollah.

In Pakistan, the Iran-financed Shiite Tehrik Jaafari joined a coalition of Sunni parties to govern the Northwest Frontier Province, until they all suffered a crushing defeat at last month’s parliamentary elections.

The fact that the Sunnis and Shiites in other provinces of Pakistan continued to kill each other did not prevent them from developing a joint, anti-U.S. strategy that included the revival of the Afghan Taliban and protection for the remnants of al Qaeda. Almost all self-styled ‘holy warriors’ who go to Iraq on a mission of murder and mayhem are Sunnis. And, yet most pass through Syria, a country that, as already noted, is dominated by a sect with a militant anti-Sunni religious doctrine.

Next month, Tehran will host what is billed as ‘The Islamic Convergence Conference,’ bringing together hundreds of Shiite and Sunni militants from all over the world. The man in charge, Ayatollah Ali-Muhammad Taskhiri, has described the goal of the gathering to be delivering ‘a punch in the face of the American Great Satan.’

Still, Mr. Obama might ask: what about al Qaeda and Iran?

The 9/11 Commission report states that Tehran was in contact with al Qaeda at various levels before the 2001 attacks. Tehran has admitted the presence of al Qaeda figures in Iran on a number of occasions, and has arranged for the repatriation of at least 13 Saudi members in the past five years. The Bin Laden family tells us that at least one of Osama’s sons, Sa’ad, has lived in Iran since 2002.

Reports from Iran claim that scores of Taliban leaders and several al Qaeda figures spend part of the year in a compound-style housing estate near the village of Dost Muhammad on the Iranian frontier with Afghanistan. One way to verify these claims is to allow the world media access to the area. But Tehran has declared large segments of eastern Iran a ‘no-go’ area, even for its own state-owned media.

In short, the claim that al Qaeda and the Khomeinists, not to mention other terrorist groups operating in the name of Islam, would not work together simply because they have theological differences is both naive and dangerous.

Messrs. McCain and Obama do not need to know about doctrinal differences between Sunni and Shiite Muslims. The problem they face is not theological but political. All they need to know is that there are deadly and determined groups dedicated to destruction of the U.S. in the name of a perverted version of Islam, and that they need to be resisted, fought and ultimately defeated.

The Protocols of the Daily Kos

Posted by avideditor on March 28, 2008

Charles of LGF has found some really offense lies being spread at the Daily Kos.

The Protocols of the Daily Kos: ”

Jew-hatred bubbles and ferments just beneath the surface at Daily Kos, erupting from time to time in gaseous diary posts like this one: Daily Kos: What’s Wrong With Being Anti Israel?

There seems to be such a taboo in the media about anyone or any story that is critical of Israel.  Witness the recent attacks on the Obama campaign via activities by his ex-pastor that was considered ‘Anti-Israel’.  Remember the vicious treatment that Jimmy Carter got for mentioning the words ‘Apartheid’ and Israel in his book title? Candidate after candidate has to pay lip service and claim his blind allegiance to that state… and why?  why is it the ‘kiss of death’ to be critical of Israel.

[...blah, blah ... apartheid ... blah, blah ... concentration camps ... blah, blah...]

Israel continues to deny the right of return to over 2 million refugees spread all over the world for more than 50 years… can you imagine living in shanty towns and tents for over 50 years??

- Israel maintains a racial based system of government based on the failed ideology of Zionism. An ideology that at heart is based on racist nationalism granting rights to one ‘ethnic’ (or is it religious?) group only

- While Israel claims to be living in the constant fear of terrorism, the death ratio of Palestinians vs. Israeli is roughly 13 to 1. Yet, somehow, they are the victims, and our media pushes that notion on us (and we wonder why the world hates us).

- Israel has TWICE invaded its northern neighbor, Lebanon and continues daily violations of its air space. Complaints to the UN are constantly blocked by, guess who?, the USA.

[...blah, blah ... criticism of Israel is not antisemitism ... blah, blah ... Jimmy Carter rocks ... blah, blah...]

I am anti-Israel and anti-Zionist and proud of it. Anyone who spends time looking at the history and facts of the region would come to the same conclusion. We should not be made to feel like a pariah in our own country for believing so.

Lesson of the Day : Thuggery Works

Posted by avideditor on March 28, 2008

I found this amazingly written piece at the Jawa Report. Enjoy.

Lesson of the Day : Thuggery Works: ”

rageboy.jpgGiven the state of affairs in our world today, it’s easy to get angry.

When some folks get angry, they go home and pour themselves a glass of scotch. When other folks get angry, they threaten people, kill people, smash things and start fires.

In a world where extortion and thuggery aren’t tolerated, of course, threats and arson just don’t pay off.

Unfortunately, we don’t live in that world.

vandalism[1].jpgWe live in a world today where extortion, thuggery and terror often do pay off, and sometimes handsomely. We live in a world where those least willing to play well with others often find themselves most rewarded for their behavior. In the meantime, those who operate under the normal, traditional rules of rational discourse and proper etiquette find themselves increasingly silenced and shunted to the sidelines in order to make ample room and comfort for the loudest and least reasonable among us. Our pointy-headed elites send out to the world the message that the future belongs to those least willing to accept compromise and conciliation, and to those who are willing to undertake whatever means they think necessary to advance their cause.

1hughes.jpgLong ago, the West set foot on a path to a society in which decisions were made based on persuasion and discourse. A system based on persuasion and discourse requires, of course, that everyone (or at least the vast majority) in the group buys in to the game. Unfortunately, there have always been those who preferred to ‘short-circuit’ the system and revert to more ‘medieval’ methods of persuasion in order to get their way. After all, if those methods work, what’s to keep them from being used to trump the system? Nothing at all save personal morality and conscience. As you might have noticed, these are often in short supply, particularly among the ranks of the world’s terrorists and extortionists. Thus, in the absence of a serious and meaningful official response to violence (or the threat of violence), violence (or the threat of violence) will ultimately carry the day.
