Jihadi Jumping

Posted by Glezele Vayne on March 5, 2009

BS”D

No, I’m not recommending jumping a jihadi. Seems they have the corner on that market. I was jumping around from one jihadi story to the next today…it’s just amazing what a bunch of trouble these folks are stirring up and how wimpy Western democracies are in response. I think we’re stymied because we are under the impression that what we are confronting are religious fanatics, and whatever we do, we don’t want to stifle freedom of religion.

Get that out of your heads as fast as you can. Islam is not primarily a religion. It is an all-encompassing, all-controlling political system with an inseparable religious component to it. An article by Spengler at the Asia Times gives us some perspective on Islam, defining it as both a religion and a political ideology. Spengler cautions us that it is this combination which makes Islam dangerous.

Another way to view Islam can be found at Jihad Watch, in “Islam 101” by Gregory M. Davis. In his words, it has been “transformed Islam from a relatively benign form of monotheism into an expansionary, military-political ideology that persists to this day.” It is easy to observe, in most cases, that Islam as it is interpreted and practiced today, can’t seem to live alongside or tolerate democratic, representative governments. These elements together make Islam in our day positively toxic.

This does not mean I hate Muslims. The system is the problem. Had I been alive when slavery was an accepted insitution, I would have been an abolitionist. Does that mean I would have hated people of African descent? If this is a comparison that seems a non-sequitur to you, just check this site out, and then watch some videos by Dr. Wafa Sultan, Ayaan Hirsi Ali, or Walid Shoebat. I have some here, or you can peruse the stock at Youtube, or Google Video, or get yourself some good books by any of them.

Islam, as it is packaged and sold by the jihadis, is not the ultimate society, in spite of it’s more fanatical adherents insistence. It is the ultimate fascism.

Jews attacked with a steel bar in Antwerp, Arab bulldozes Jews in Jerusalem, Jews grabbed by a security guard at U of Toronto seminar, threatened with beheading with a saw!! (now that’s rude).

Assault and threats to Jewish student following questions

While last night had higher profile anti-Zionists and anti-Semites, what with Naomi Klein and Sid Ryan, tonight had greater righteous indignation of the “oppressed Fakestinians”.

Notably, with Jews visible in the audience, the audience was repeatedly told from the dias that no photography or recording of any type was allowed by anyone without “media clearance”.

On a number of occasions organizers tried to force me to depart with my camera, though I had not taken even one shot. i told them that when everyone with a cell-phone leaves or gives up their phone i will give up my camera too.

Later, during questions, organizers, ” security”, surrounded the area where visible Jews were seated. A Jew asked a question: “Is Hamas’s charter racist “? That question then become the focus of vitriole, the “security” closed in around the Jews, security then started to push the Jews, then the dias demanded that the Jew leave the room. The Jew replied out loud that he would not depart unless told to do so by the Police. They came in from the lobby, and that ensued.

While this went on, I pulled out my camera and started to shoot. All manner of people closed in around me, and tried to obscure my lens. I got a few shots, and left for the lobby to catch the newly-evicted Jews’ fate. Organizers were demanding my photos, and my name. They got neither, though it will be next to impossible to be anonymous tomorrow.

For my efforts, a Police Sergeant came up to me and pushed me out the front doors using his chest and flack-jacket against my chest. I asked him why i was being pushed out the doors and he said that. “you know why”. Why? Because I look Jewish? Because I was photographing the altercation started by the islamo-fascists? OR, because he is brown ? Oh, but I can’t make that silly, facetious, suggestion, all while being profiled myself ……….

Then There Was Light and other sites are carrying the same story.

At the Muslim Day Parade of 2008, this man asks his god god to annihilate Israel with a nuclear holocaust…

Because they’re asking “allah” for a horrific destruction of 6 million Jewish souls, I suppose we’re not to construe this as Muslims threatening Israel. Hm. I wonder who they think “allah” would be  using to carry out his  will. Anybody with ideas…please comment.

You’ll hear that line of reasoning towards the bottom of this post, also found at Wikipedia’s article on the Islamic Thinkers Society. Glenn Beck interviews a guy named Jesse.

I.T.S. threatens jihad against America.

This doesn't look very friendly to me...

Robert Spencer is also threatened by the I.T.S. (that’s a weird one).

“May Allah rip out his spine from his back and split his brains in two, and then put them both back, and then do it over and over again. May He put this friend of shaytaan in the worst part of jahannum. Ameen.”

So, most of us have probably told someone to go to hell, and that is harsh. But I wouldn’t pursue legal action against someone who hopes I go to hell and says so. Hell, I might even laugh at him, slap him on the back. Hard.

Spencer might want to consider it on this one. Isn’t the above threat a bit over the top? I thought death threats weren’t protected speech? Or does the fact that these men pray out loud that their god will do these heinous acts protect them? Do they actually get to hide behind that, when their descriptions are so gruesome??

I was perusing Jihad Watch…and found some links hacked. Same with WorldNetDaily. I notified them, because I actually do believe in freedom of speech. I’m sure those sites are kept busy by the religion of peace. One of the links that was hacked was to a video of the man who called a woman he disagreed with a whore at an I.T.S. demonstration. I have embedded that video below.  He is a Jewish convert to Islam. Sad. So very sad.

Meanwhile, broadcast news continues reporting mostly local soft news, love triangles and such, along with a few bank robberies, and murders. Okay. Some of that is important. I wish the love triangles could remain private matters. If I want to know about that sort of thing, I’ll watch Access Hollywood or read The Globe. But that’s just me…

But what about the fact that several anti-American, openly jihadist, foreign entities, now operate on American soil?

And this isn't even the most updated version....

And this isn't even the most updated version....

Here’s a video on this that will really curl (or straighten, whatever you need) your hair.

These events aren’t newsworthy??

During the course of my reading today, I ran across another organization that keeps tabs on jihadist activities — Militant Islam Monitor.org. Very worthy of our attention.

We’re all watching each other these days aren’t we? Something’s gone haywire. Oh. Yeah. Our constitution isn’t being implemented. The one that the jihadists now openly tell Americans needs replacing with sharia (Islamic law) under a khalifate. That constitution. The constitution that our government officials take an oath to defend, along with “all enemies, both foreign and domestic”. Don’t these people, who call for our deaths, for the end of our chosen method of government — sound like enemies to you???

Of particular interest on the Wikipedia site regarding the Muslim Thinker’s Society is the link on the bottom entitled, “A Glenn Beck interview of a member of the Islamic Thinkers Society. Glenn hits pretty hard. Sorry, it’s a soundfile not a video.

Below is a video and a photo one of the guy’s from I.T.S.  calling a woman a whore. It can be clearly heard at the beginning of the video. In response, the woman tosses coffee on him. One of his buddies begins asking in a demanding tone, repeatedly, “Will you arrest her?” Several witnesses kept insisting that the man called the woman a whore.

This is so typical of Islamic behavior. They start the fight, the victim defends himself, herself, or in the case of groups, nations etc. they then go complaining about the response!! How about let’s not go picking fights guys??

The guy is a Jewish convert to Islam, calling women "whores".

The guy is a Jewish convert to Islam, a member of Islamic Thinker's Society, expressing his thoughts. He calls a woman he is arguing with a whore. Later, in the video, you'll here him call women who are speaking up on the first woman's behalf "children" and "filthy", and claiming they don't know how to have a discussion.

I leave you with a quote from my religion. “Pray for the welfare of the non-Jewish government, since were it not for the fear of it men would swallow each other alive.” (Avot 3:2 and Rashi’s commentary.)

THIS DAY March 6

Posted by Shiva on March 5, 2009

March 6, 2009. Jerusalem, Israel. A Palestinian driver rammed a construction vehicle into a bus and police car on a highway Thursday, wounding two officers before he was shot dead, police said — the latest in a string of attacks by militants using heavy machinery against Israeli targets.
Witnesses described a towering yellow front loader speeding along Jerusalem‘s Begin Highway, a main thoroughfare, dragging the police car, flipping it into the air and trying to crush it with its shovel.

Witnesses said the attacker apparently worked at a nearby construction site. There was no immediate claim of responsibility, though the Hamas militant group that rules the Gaza Strip praised the attack. Police said the man was not carrying identification.

“It was simply an attack meant to murder innocent people,” Mayor Nir Barkat told Channel 2 television. He called for the demolition of the attacker’s home, a tactic that has drawn international criticism. Barkat said such demolitions are needed to deter other attacks.

The rampage came as Israel prepared to celebrate Purim, a holiday in which schools are closed, children dress up in costumes and families attend parties and public events.

Barkat said the attack would not stop next week’s celebrations. “We need to get back to our routine as fast as possible to show the terrorists that they won’t ruin our holiday,” he said.

One witness, a taxi driver, told Israel Radio he chased the driver as he watched the attack.

“I saw the police car fly into the air. He flipped it over twice, then continued dragging it toward a bus that was stuck in traffic,” he said. He told the station he fired four shots at the man, wounding him. “Then a policeman came with his M-16 and finished him off,” he said.

Deputy police chief Nisso Shachar said the attacker was first spotted by a traffic police car. “The officer saw the bulldozer lift up a police squad car with its shovel after trying to squash it,” he said. “It is without a doubt a terror attack.”

Police said the two wounded officers were lightly hurt. The bus was not carrying passengers.

Shachar said the man was killed and an open copy of the Quran, Islam’s holy book, was found in the vehicle. He said the presence of the book indicated the attacker was affiliated with or influenced by Islamic radicals.

In the Gaza Strip, Hamas praised the attack. “We bless this operation today in Jerusalem,” said spokesman Fawzi Barhoum. “The Palestinian people have the right to defend themselves, and we emphasize we will defend our homeland.”

Israeli rescue workers evacuate an injured man next to a construction vehicle whose driver carried out an attack in Jerusalem, Thursday,

MEANWHILE
BOO HOO HOO
THE BREED REACTORS WEEP
Palestinian relatives react during the funeral of Islamic Jihad militant Wasseem Mansour during his funeral in the Maghazi refugee camp, central Gaza Strip, Thursday, March 5, 2009. Israeli air strike early Thursday killed two Islamic Jihad militants and wounded another, bringing to four the number of group members killed by Israel in less than 24 hours and drawing retaliatory rocket fire at Israel.
Israeli military officials said the three men were returning from firing an anti-tank missile at Israeli troopsPalestinians carry the body of a Hamas member, killed during an Israeli army operation in the West Bank, with the flag of Lebanese militant group Hezbollah (left) being carried in the procession.
The ruling nazi party NuLab of Britain has said it is prepared to engage in direct contacts with the political wing of Hezbollah, after it became part of a national unity government there last year.

March 6 2009 Tehran, Iran. An Iranian woman living in Spain said Wednesday she welcomed a Tehran court ruling that awards her eye-for-an-eye justice against a suitor who blinded her with acid.

Ameneh Bahrami, 30, told Cadena SER radio, “I am not doing this out of revenge, but rather so that the suffering I went through is not repeated.”

Late last year an Iranian court ruled that the man — identified only as Majid — who blinded Bahrami in 2004 after she spurned him, should also be blinded with acid based on the Islamic law system of “qisas,” or eye for an eye retribution, according to Iranian newspaper reports from November.

But Bahrami, who moved to Spain after the attack to get medical treatment, said Wednesday that under Iranian law, she is entitled to blind him in only one eye, unless she pays euro20,000 ($25,110), because in Iran women are not considered equal to men.

“They have told us that my two eyes are equal to one of his because in my country each man is worth two women. They are not the same,” she told Cadena SER.
