Profiling & Enemas for Muslims? A job for Obama’s Fisting Czar:

FOX News Guest: ‘Strip Search All 18-28 Year Old Muslim Men At Airports’

Vlad Tepes comments:

Of course this is a preposterous solution. One of them is going to swallow a condom of PETP sooner or later and learn to detonate it right. You gonna give everyone a barium enema?
Muslims should have to take their own airlines and not be allowed to deviate from flight plans by a degree. Profiling is not enough at this point. Sooner or later we have to come to terms with the fact that Muslims acting in accordance with the teachings of Islam are responsible for terrorism, which by the way is the least of the threat to the rest of us that Islam presents.

Neither of these two knows what they are talking about. ‘Those who hate us’- blah blah… ‘would generate more violence and hatred…, what we’re trying to do is to make peace with those who hate our country…’ Delusion chases cluelessness.  Aid Jiziya doesn’t work, so we can’t buy our way out of it…

Ignorance and ‘Radicalization’

Why are Westerners working so hard to delude themselves? (Islam Monitor)

Obama’s sending reinforcements to Al Qaeda in Yemen:

Given how much President Obama has already messed up, if he goes through with this, it will still have to rate among the stupidest things he’s done (Hat Tip: Instapundit).

As Susan notes below, a bipartisan group of lawmakers is urging the Obama White House not to go forward with plans to send a number of Yemeni terrorists now being held in the Guantanamo Bay detention facility back to their home country. But the Obama White House insists it will continue to send those Gitmo inmates to Yemen — a country now recognized as a hotbed of terrorism so dangerous that the U.S. has decided to close its embassy there.

On Fox News Sunday, top White House counterterrorism adviser John Brennan said the administration ‘absolutely’ intends to keep sending Guantanamo prisoners to Yemen.

Uh oh… US weapons sales to Arab countries ‘will alter the military balance in the region’

Fundamentally changing America. And the the ME?

Haaretz has a deeply disturbing report on recent sales of American weapons to other countries in the region, principally Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Of particular concern are the sale of offensive weapons to the Egyptians that could potentially be used against Israel, and the fact that there have been no arms sales to Israel since the Obama administration took office. In a report to Congress, the Pentagon notes that some of the arms sales ‘will alter the military balance in the region.’

Israel’s defense establishment began to be concerned by U.S. arms sales to moderate Arab states during George W. Bush’s presidency. In response to criticism the U.S. has argued that providing Egypt, Saudi Arabia and other Arab countries with arms is part of Washington’s efforts to boost the moderate axis in the Middle East and to deter Iran.

‘Moderates’- that’s right. Moderates, all of them.

Read the whole thing. At the end of the day, restrictions on use and transfer are pieces of paper that can be torn up whenever the Egyptians don’t like. Surely you don’t believe that the United States would come and try to repossess its missiles (or that it could do so even if it wanted to).

Egypt is a repressive regime that continues to reap rewards for a peace treaty it signed thirty years ago while holding the other party to that peace treaty at arms length or worse. One cannot escape the sense that the Egyptian regime is lying in wait, still hoping one day to destroy the Jewish state. In all of its war exercises, the enemy is Israel.

What could go wrong?

Iran has apparently asked Hamas and Hezbullah to coordinate attacks on Israel.
