Jihad Watch: Father Zakaria Botros on CAIR's radar

Gert Wilders called for the Netherlands to ban the Quran like Mein Kamph is already banned in that country. This is a mistake in both cases, but especially for the Quran. If it becomes widely known Islam is based on this hateful, misogynous. fascist tome then it will be regarded like Nazism. When the words of the prophet are written on subway walls and tenement halls then all that will be heard from this vile ideology will be the sounds of silence. That is why al-Qaeda has issued a $60 million bounty on the head of Zakaria Botros a Coptic priest and CAIR accuses him of hate crimes.
There is little ambiguity Islamic texts so the more widely known the better. Robert Spencer, Gert Wilders, Fr. Zakaria and even the Jihadist themselves (by their works shall you know them) are doing a great job exposing Islam for what it is.

Hoc est verum et nihili nisi verum

This is speech by Robert Spencer urging his listeners to defend free speech. Even the United States is just one Supreme Court ruling away from losing First Amendment right to freedom of speech. Slander in English Common Law means saying something about someone that is not true and harms their reputation. Sharia Law defines slander as telling something about someone that harms their reputation and true or not is irrelevant. While you still can check out this link Father Zakaria Botros on "The perverse sexual habits of the Prophet" which some day may be banned even here in Canada and even the United States as hate speech although is is part of Islamic teaching. Apparently it is only "hateful" when kuffers quote these texts.
A sample is quoted below:

Last we left the Coptic priest, he was reading from hadith reports stating that the prophet of Islam “admired” a 2-3 year old girl (saying that he hoped to live long enough to make her his wife), and “laid” in the grave with a dead woman.

In this episode, he began with the prophet’s “transvestite” tendencies. He read from several hadiths, including Sahih Bukhari—Fr Botros claims that there are no less than 32 different references to this phenomenon in Islam’s books—wherein Muhammad often laid in bed dressed in women’s clothes, specifically his child-bride Aisha’s.
Fr. Botros: “Perhaps Muslims think that he only dressed in Aisha’s clothes? Being that she was his “favorite,” perhaps after being intimate with her, he would merely lay in bed with her clothes?” (Here the priest put his face in his hands lamenting that he had to talk of such shameful things.)
Then he offered an interesting and revealing hadith, from Sahih Bukhari (2/911), which records Muhammad saying, “Revelations [i.e., the Koran] never come to me when I’m dressed in women’s clothing—except when I’m dressed in Aisha’s,” implying that it was something of a habit for the prophet to dress in female clothing.
Fr Botros next moved on to some commentaries in the Tafsir of al-Qurtubi—an authoritative exegesis in Islam. He read one anecdote where Aisha said that, one day, while Muhammad was lying naked in bed, Zaid came knocking; Muhammad, without getting dressed, opened the door and “hugged and kissed him”—in the nude. Elsewhere, Qurtubi concludes that, “the prophet—prayers and blessings upon him—was constantly preoccupied with women.”
Fr Botros to Muslims: “So this is your prophet—the most morally upright man? Instead of being preoccupied with, say, prayer or good deeds, he was preoccupied with women?”
He next read from Faid al-Qabir (3/371), wherein Muhammad is on record saying, “My greatest loves are women and perfume: the hungry is satisfied after eating, but I never have enough of women.” Another hadith: “I can hold back from food and drink—but not from women.” After reading these hadiths, Fr Botros would just look at the screen in silence, shaking his head.

It would seem that according to Islamic texts that the "Prophet of Islam" was sexual pervert but accurately quoting these texts constitutes defaming Islam according to Sharia Law. In Canada the truth is no defense to respondents accused of spreading hatred under Human Rights law a fact not lost on Imams in Canada.

Dentur tales doses

"The Dutch cartoons that sparked riots all across the Islamic world were only done once, in a big batch. The rarity of such commentary proved the point that the Western world is far too quick to concede to fear - not only fear of reprisals, but fear of offending someone. This needs to change. Arab newspapers are filled with political cartoons depicting Jews as hook-nosed blood drinking murders, yet any cartoon suggesting, even slightly, that there is something wrong with their barbarism results in riots and protests from them, and cries of "Intolerance!" from the sympathetic left. .
We need more. More cartoons, more critical commentary, more ridicule. We have to stop being afraid to say they're stupid and ignorant racist and misogynist and violent and evil. But we need to take it a step further and let them know that we regard them, not as fearsome, but as ridiculous, childish, and pathetic."
From The Hittman Chronicle by Dave Hitt
C.S. Lewis once remarked that the devil hates being mocked and the visceral reaction of the Islamic world to the Danish cartoons proved his point. In Reflections on the Psalms he said "Of all bad men religious bad men are the worst." It is also said that all Muslims are not terrorists but most terrorists are Muslims and that not all Islamic religious leaders are bad men but most of Islamic religious leaders are very bad men.

Ad perpetuam rei memoriam

A few thoughts as Holocaust Remeberance day passes:

Pope Benedict XVI drops the excommunication of a holocaust denying bishop. According to R.C. Cannon Law holocaust denial, while a despicable opinion, is not strictly speaking heresy or apostasy which are the only sins that rate the ultimate penalty of excommunication. It is possible to believe all sorts of nonsense like Elvis lives, UFO alien abductions or even Global Warming and still be a good Catholic.

Lukea, a town in Sweden canceled it's Hologaust remembrance program in protest of the Gaza war although some residents held an unoffical ceremony anyway.

A new "Blood Libel" is appearing in the Middle East:

That is the 'New Blood Libel' - the charge that the modern Jewish State murders
Palestinian civilians, especially children, in the name of Zionism. At rallies
around the world organized by Muslims protesting Israel's recent invasion of
Gaza, the chants of "baby killers" and "Israelis are Nazis!" were repeated again
and again by the protestors. These sickening accusations have been picked up by
Western media outlets and flashed on television and computer screens all over
the world. The time has come for Jews and non-Jews-defenders of democracy and
Israel's right to exist as a sovereign Jewish State-to respond to the haters of
Israel and expose their new charge of blood libel to be as destructive and
utterly untruthful as the medieval accusation.

"Jihad" Carter the most incompetent U.S. President (so far) says Hamas can be trusted. Trusted to kill Jews no doubt. Jimmy Carter tells Hamas to 'Be like Gandhi' - which makes him either a useful idiot or or a sinister creep.

Meanwhile back in Canada a "Conservative" government has decided to spend the country out of debt. Sigh.

Videtis quantum scelus contra rem publicam vobis nuntiatum sit

Excerpted from National Review

2009 - A Year to Defend Free Speech

On March 28 of last year, the UN hit rock bottom. Its Human Rights Council—whose members include such stalwart defenders of freedom as China, Cuba, Angola, and Saudi Arabia—adopted a resolution that severely modified the mandate of the Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Expression. Instead of simply reporting on cases in which the right to free expression is being violated, the special rapporteur will now also have to report on cases in which that right is being “abused”—including when individuals use their freedom of speech to criticize Islam, or the particular elements of Islam that jihadists use to justify violence and Islamic supremacism. In essence, this means that the function of the special rapporteur has changed 180 degrees—from safeguarding the rights of individuals who hold unpopular or controversial ideas, to trying to limit the freedom of individuals to express such ideas.

It is official: the United Nations is opposed to the concept of free speech. Some might say this only applies to objectionable speech except that unobjectionable speech needs no protection. In the Netherlands not just Gert Wilders but critics of Islam have come under sanction:

Publish in a blog that the Prophet Muhammad was a murderer, rapist and pedophile according to Islamic teaching, upload a video to YouTube showing Muslim demonstrators behaving like Nazi SA Brownshirts, mention the fact that the word "Jihad" means struggle and "Mien Kamf" means my struggle, suggest that Islam is not a religion like Christianity but a geo-political movement like Communism or Fascism could get one sent to prison, even in Canada. The Canadian Human Rights Commission has the power to search and seize evidence without warrant even in private homes, hold hearings without observing legal procedures - where truth is no defence - and freedom of speech is an "American concept" which has no value. Not that your humble scribe is particularly worried as nobody reads this drivel anyway. A voice crying in the wilderness as it were.

Ubi eadem ratio ibi idem jus, et de similibus idem est judicium

Gladstone, an Islamaphobe before the word existed?

"William Ewart Gladstone (1809–1898) was Prime Minister of Great Britain four times: 1868–74, 1880–85, 1886 and 1892–94. He called the Qur'an an "accursed book" and once held it up during a session of Parliament, declaring: "So long as there is this book there will be no peace in the world."
Times have changed a great deal. Now the votaries of the book he saw as such an impediment to peace have triumphed: an Islamic reading room is being set up at the library Gladstone founded near his home in North Wales. In this BBC audio report (thanks to Andrew), Gladstone's great grandson Christopher Parish and Professor Richard Aldous, head of history at University College Dublin, tie themselves into knots trying to come up with a reason why Gladstone would have approved of this reading room. Gladstone, you see, was a man of his time, but he actually made favorable comments about Muhammad in the margins of a biography of the founder of Islam, and his remarks weren't as extreme as those of some of his contemporaries...
It doesn't add up. The text of the Qur'an has not changed from the late 19th century to the early 21st. What has changed is the prevailing attitude toward the book. Now it has become a manifestation of bigotry and hatred to see in the Islamic holy book anything but peace and tolerance. But the text of the book remains the same. If it was an impediment to peace in Gladstone's day, it is now. If it is an uplifting exhortation to peace and tolerance now, then it was in Gladstone's day as well."
The Nineteenth Century was not an era of moral relativism. The Victorians, often portrayed as narrow minded and bigoted, did in fact possess a moral clarity lacking today. It was the century where slavery was abolished because of Christian religious fervor, a feat that would be impossible today, indeed slavery is making a comeback in our 21st. Prior to the Great War (WWI) a world traveler, a la Phinias Fogg, could circumnavigate the globe without presenting any government issued identity documents, a freedom now impossible. Today "Human Rights Commissions" regularly prosecute people for expressing offensive opinions while in the Nineteenth Century Darwin published On the Origin of Species but was never the victim of legal sanction. Now in the early 21st Century it is difficult to imagine how an equally unorthodox theory could be published without some sort of government sanction.

Quoties in verbis nulla est ambiguitas, ibi nulla expositio contra verba expressa fienda est

Saudi “prince” tells Obambi to help destroy Israel, or else… » Winds Of Jihad:
“I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave.”
King Fahd Bin Abdul-Aziz, Jeddah 1993

This an unambigious description of the relationship between Saudi Arabia and the United States. As for how the U.N. relates to journalism, this comes from the Chicago Sun Times on how the United Nations debates free speech which is, as it seems, is in secret:

"GENEVA - A television production crew was expelled Thursday from a United Nations meeting discussing freedom of expression and defamation of religions.
Two journalists from the French-German cultural channel ARTE were asked to leave a meeting room at the UN’s European headquarters during a public session of a human rights body preparing for a racism conference in South Africa later this year.
The journalists were working on a documentary on how the issue of human rights is debated at the United Nations.
According to a diplomatic source, the expulsion announced by the chairman of the session, Russian representative Yuri Boychenko, was requested by the Organisation of Islamic Conference and by the African group of states."

If you want to keep something secret it means you have something to hide. What they are trying to hide is that Islam is not a religion as such but a geo-political movement much like Communism or Nazism bent on world domination. Hiding under the guise of religion then any criticism of Islam must be regarded as blasphemy, or racism, (What race is Islam?) and punished severely. The Heartless Dutch Queens have convicted Gert Wilders in advance of a trial for the thought crime of "inciting hatred" (Would someone please explain how an emotion may be outlawed?) and United Nations meetings on freedom of speech are held in secret.

Spemque metumque inter dubiis

Jihad Watch: Iran prepares to defame the “International Day of Commemoration Day in Memory of the Victims of the Holocaust – Remembrance and Beyond.” Will the ‘international community’ react before – or no

"A student-linked Iranian publisher plans to launch English – and Arabic – language versions of a book of caricatures and satirical writings about the Holocaust (…). The book deals with the "big historical distortion" of the Holocaust and the English and Arabic editions would be published at a ceremony in Tehran later this month when a message from Ahmadinejad wouldbe read out, Fars News Agency said. It appeared to be translations of a book which official media in September said had been published about the "fiction" of the Holocaust. "The presentation ceremony will be held on Jan. 27 ... with the attendance of a number of government officials," said Mohammad-Mehdi Hemmati, who is involved in the project."

Gert Wilders has been virtually convicted in advance of his trial for spreading hatred of Islam for merely quoting the already revealed (by Islamic Radicals) agenda of Islam. Simply stating the obvious like Hitler authored a book entitled Mien Kamf (my struggle) and the Arabic word "Jihad" mean the same thing is a crime. Mentioning the fact that Hitler admired the Islamic religion and despised "flabby Christianity" and regarded the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem (Arafat's uncle) as a kindred spirit is all hate speech because the truth is no defence. Organize a demonstration calling for "Death for the Jews" is just an aspect of political discourse and free speech. Mention the fact that Muhammad married a six year old girl, Aisha, consummated the marriage when she was nine - all according to Islamic scholars - thus suggesting that he was a pedophile is criminal offence. This is the death of reason.

Nemo propheta in patria sua

The most prominent European fighting Nazi tyranny had this to say about Islam:-“How dreadful are the curses which Islam lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
"A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property‹either as a child, a wife, or a concubine must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
"No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.
"Far from being moribund, Islam is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science -the science against which it had vainly struggled -the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.”
~~ Sir Winston Churchill~~

Now Gert Wilders, the creator of Fitna, is to be prosecuted in the Netherlands for saying the same things about Islam as Winston Churchill. (As an historical aside it should be noted that a direct ancestor of Winston Churchill, John Churchill - Duke of Marlborough, advised Prince Eugene of Savoy at the Battle of Zenta on 11 September 1697 where the Ottoman Turks were decisively defeated.) In the Netherlands, like Canada, it is possible for the Imams of Islam to presue religious Fatwas through the courts and like Canada freedom of speech is a dying concept. Freedom from being offended trumps freedom to express the truth.

  • Dutch authorities will file charges against a lawmaker for inciting religious hatred in speeches and a film he made about Islam last year, an Amsterdam district prosecutor told CNN Wednesday.Prosecutors had originally decided not to press charges against Geert Wilders, 43, a member of parliament for the right-wing Party for Freedom.
    "We thought a conviction would not be possible," prosecutor Otto Van Der Bijl told CNN. But nine people filed complaints with the Court of Appeal, he said. The court found there was a "reasonable suspicion that Mr. Wilders is guilty of the charges and the prosecution should in fact proceed."
    Wilders blasted the court decision as "an all-out assault on freedom of speech," in a statement posted on his party's Web site.
    "Apparently this is the Netherlands today. If you speak out you might be prosecuted. To participate in public debate has become a dangerous activity," he said in the statement, which also called for donations to the party to help him fight the charges in court.

Bellum omnium contra omnes

Now that Hamas has declared victory by surviving the war with Israel they are getting down to business. They are now busy hunting down, torturing and killing Fatah supporters in Gaza.

  • Gaza, 19 Jan. (AKI) - The largest Palestinian party, Fatah, on Monday claimed that the rival Islamist faction Hamas attacked its members during military conflict in the Gaza Strip in the past three weeks. Fatah said 16 people died and another 80 were injured in attacks by Hamas which is the ruling party in Gaza

Judging by the hysterical response to the war by demonstrators in Europe and North America it seem strange to see the calm in Islamic countries. There were violent demonstrations in London while Damascus was serene. Even in mild mannered Canada demonstrators were chanting anti-Semitic slogans while in the West Bank a call by the Arab League for mass demonstrations was ignored. Why do fellow Arabs seemed so unconcerned by the plight of Hamas in Gaza?

  • The answer lies in the way many Arab regimes view militant Islam, as represented by Hamas. The West has come to view Muslim militancy as one of its biggest threats in the 21st century but for many Arab countries including Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Saudi Arabia the same threat has existed for much longer.

Back in 1982 the Muslim Brotherhood a militant Islamic organization much like Hamas started making guerrilla attacks on Syrian police from their base in Hama. Then President , Hafez al Assad, ordered the Syrian army to shell this unfortunate town killing over 20,000 people, mostly civilians, but I do not recall any demonstrations or U.N. resolutions condemning Syria for a "disproportionate response." Egypt has a blockade on the Gaza border but no Hamas rockets have rained on Egyptians out of the justifiable fear that President Hosni Mubarak would show the same tolerance. There is a myth, mostly in western democracies, that there is some sort of Pan-Arabism that unites them as one. They are as divided by self interest as nations everywhere.

cadavera vero innumera

Al-Qaeda: medieval in all ways

Rarely is there good news about the war on terror but there are some glad tidings from Algeria.

"40 members of AQLIM (al-Qaeda in the Land of the Islamic Maghreb), the largest Al-Qaeda group outside the Middle East have died by the Black Death.
The plague, responsible for the deaths of an estimated 75 million people world wide during the 14th century, swept through the AQLIM training at a forest camp in Algeria, North Africa, and was only discovered when security forces found a body by a roadside.
to The Sun, Al-Qaeda chiefs fear the plague may have been passed to other terror cells, and even Taliban fighters in Afghanistan. One security source quoted by the paper said 'This is the deadliest weapon yet in the war against terror. Most of the terrorists do not have the basic medical supplies needed to treat the disease. It spreads quickly and kills within hours. This will be really worrying al-Qaeda.'
There is believed to be 1,000 terrorists attached to the camp where the outbreak took place, with many reported fleeing to other camps, potentially spreading the disease."

Perhaps this is the Will of Allah that these Jihadists will achieve martyrdom or perhaps some biological device misfired in a training accident. (a really big buboe?)

This is still good news and one can only hope that it will spread to the caves of Hindu Kush. A infection that is easily treated if diagnosed early and treated with the right medicines would be deadly among medieval minded Muslims.

Solitudinem fecerunt, pacem appelunt

Israel declares a ceasefire then Hamas declares victory.

The Islamo-Fascists are right about one thing: peace in Palestine will only come when the Jews are either killed or evicted "from the Jordan River to the sea." Without the Jews what is left in Israel will turn back into a desert from whence it came. Jerusalem and will become a virtual ghost town much like it was in the Nineteenth Century. Hamas may respect this Hudna for six months or so but the war will go on and on or until what is now a prosperous nation is turned into a desert, then they will call it peace.
Then they will turn to Eurabia and end the "Christian Occupation" to avenge the "humiliation" meted out by Charles Martel at Tours, France. The Islamic Jihadists have never left the Dark Ages and only wish to draw the rest of humanity back there.

    Strategic Collapse at the Army War College
    A faculty member publicly defends Hamas while students are not allowed to read texts on militant Islam.
    January 14, 2009 - by Patrick Poole

    If you know your enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles.
    This famous maxim by the ancient Chinese general Sun Tzu is familiar to every student of military science and strategy. His counsel is simple: understand your enemy, understand yourself. Nearly eight years after the 9/11 terrorist attacks, however, important segments of our military infrastructure dedicated to training and educating the next generation of military leaders have woefully failed to heed Sun Tzu’s advice. Two recent blog posts by Washington Post military correspondent Tom Ricks related to policies and publications by the U.S. Army War College give evidence to this strategic collapse in the War on Terror.
    Two weeks ago, Ricks reported on a new publication by Army War College research professor Sherifa Zuhur on Hamas and Israel that informs readers that Hamas has been misunderstood due to the misreporting by “Israeli and Western sources that villainize the group.” Zuhur concludes that Hamas isn’t so bad after all, so we all just need to get along and embrace the terrorist group through negotiations — a view apparently endorsed by the Army War College when it published her defense of Hamas.
    A second post last week, “Fiasco at the Army War College: The Sequel,” records an exchange between Ricks and defense expert and author Mark Perry. Assessing the academic state of affairs at the War College, Perry informed Ricks:
    It’s worse than you think. They have curtailed the curriculum so that their students are not exposed to radical Islam. Akin to denying students access to Marx during the Cold War.
    This is hardly the first complaint that the military has failed to investigate and assess the strategic writings related to radical Islam and Islamic war doctrine. William Gawthrop, former head of the Joint Terrorism Task Force of the Defense Department’s Counterintelligence Field Activity, says in a military intelligence journal article that:
    As late as early 2006, the senior service colleges of the Department of Defense had not incorporated into their curriculum a systematic study of Muhammad as a military or political leader. As a consequence, we still do not have an in-depth understanding of the war-fighting doctrine laid down by Muhammad, how it might be applied today by an increasing number of Islamic groups, or how it might be countered. (”The Sources and Patterns of Terrorism in Islamic Law,” The Vanguard: Journal of the Military Intelligence Corps Association, 11:4 [Fall 2006], p. 10)

Even after the events of 9/11 the intelligentsia still is not clear on the concept of what Islamo-Fascism is all about. It is about creating a world wide caliphate and converting to Islam whom they can and killing those they cannot. This has been their agenda since the days of Mohammad and they will use any means from persuasion, to deceit and ultimately violence to get there. The Saudis regards the deeds of Osama bin Laden as being premature but they share the same goal. "Moderate Islam" and "radical Islam" is just a variation old good cop versus bad cop routine. Anybody who has studied this issue knows this or is guilty of wishful thinking, or worse.

Timor mortis conturbat me

“There are black-eyed virgins ready for you. The martyr gets at least two of the virgins of Paradise, and they embrace the martyr. Imagine a black-eyed virgin embracing the martyr. While people carry the body to be buried, a black-eyed virgin is embracing him. We’re talking black-eyed virgins, man! All you guys who are looking for the women and girls of this world… True, a righteous woman is a good thing, but the martyr gets something even more valuable - a black-eyed virgin. Do you know what a black-eyed virgin is? When she laughs, she overshadows the light of the sun and the moon. She has beautiful laughter. Sometimes you hear or see girls or women with beautiful laughter. Imagine - when the black-eyed virgin laughs, she overshadows the light of the sun and the moon. Who wants to get married? Who wants black-eyed virgins" - Egyptian cleric Hazem Shuman urging young muslim men to join the Hamas Jihad against Israel
There is something really perverse in an aging cleric under the guise of religious faith urging young men (likely sexually inexperienced) to engage in suicidal violence for the reward of unlimited sexual favours in the afterlife. He goes on to say:
“The reason for the 1967 defeat, for the 1948 calamity, for the loss of all our lands, for the fall of Baghdad, for the occupation, for Darfur, for the problems in South Sudan, for the colonialism that lasted throughout the 20th century is our hatred of death. Sheikh Amin and I reached the TV station together, and without arranging this in advance, we decided to come here to fight the hatred of death. We must love death, just like the companions of the Prophets."

Incidentally the title phrase comes from a responsory of the Catholic Office of the Dead, which you may find a more nuanced concept of death.
"Peccantem me quotidie, et non poenitentem, timor mortis conturbat me. Quia in inferno nulla est redemptio, miserere mei, Deus, et salva me."
"Sinning daily, and not repenting, the fear of death disturbs me. Because there is no redemption in hell, have mercy on me, O God, and save me."

proprium humani ingenii est odisse quem laeseris

Yes indeed it is human nature to hate those whom you have wronged. Having fired over 7000 rockets into Israel over the past few years it is only natural that Hamas would hate Israelites. While the I.D.F. has given Hamas quite a beating since 17 December 08 and this war may seem to be heading into endgame, the Jihadist fighters still have lots of women and children to hide behind. As long as Iran keeps their proxy well stocked with money and weapons, the U.N. will supply food and medical necessities which Hamas may steal at their leisure, this war may continue for some time yet.

Israel may wrap things up by the Barrak Hussien Obama Inauguration come 20 January as not to rain on his parade as it were. Besides CNN will be preoccupied and as we all know wars are not won on the battlefield anymore but on TV.

Calling for Genocide In Your Neighborhood
by Robert Spencer

"The mainstream media has taken little notice, but at rallies in America and Europe this week protesting Israel’s actions in Gaza, protesters have more than once declared how happy they would be if the Jews were simply wiped out once and for all."

I recall something said about the Nazis that went something like this: First they came for the communists but I did not care because I was not a communist. Then they came for the Jews but I did not care because I was not Jewish. Then they came for the Christians but I did not care because I was not a Christian. Then they came for me and there was nobody left to care.

Male captus, bene detentus

  • WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The Pentagon said on Tuesday (13 Jan 09) that 61 former detainees from its military prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, appear to have returned to terrorism since their release from custody.
    Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said 18 former detainees are confirmed as "returning to the fight" and 43 are suspected of having done in a report issued late in December by the Defense Intelligence Agency.

Somehow the logic of this "catch and release" program escapes me. Being from Canukistan I have gotten used to the perversity of the Canadian Penitentiary Service and the National Parole Board but I really thought Americans were smarter than that. The Geneva Convention does permit the indefinite detention of prisoners of war, usually these prisoners may be held until hostilities have ended. The war on terror may go on for decades but that is no excuse to let these dangerous Jihadists loose.

Rex regnant sed non gubernat

Below are just a few links which anyone could find a few minutes of web surfing. All show demonstrations reminiscent of S.A. rallies in Nazi Germany. What is interesting that none of the M.S.M. have bothered to broadcast or publish this information no doubt out of fear being accused of Islamophobia.

Organizations like C.A.I.R. and the Muslim Brotherhood have done an amazing job of intimidating politicians out of denouncing these hateful and violent demonstrations.

Here is something on a similar vein from The N.Y. Daily News

  • UN-acceptable censorship: The United Nations tries to outlaw criticism of Islam
    By Floyd Abrams

  • Wednesday, January 14th 2009, 4:00 AM
    Almost 500 years ago, on the wall of the Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, Martin Luther posted his 95 Theses, characterizing as "madness" the notion that papal pardons could absolve individuals for their sins. As viewed from Rome, Luther had maligned, even defamed, the church. Luther was eventually excommunicated. His conduct ultimately led to the creation of a Protestant Church in Germany and a Reformation throughout Europe.
    It is difficult to believe that in the 21st century anyone would seriously propose that conduct such as Luther's should be deemed illegal. But a few weeks ago, the General Assembly of the United Nations took a giant step in that direction. It adopted - for the fourth straight year - a resolution prepared by the 57-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference calling upon all UN nations to adopt legislation banning the "defamation" of religion. Spurred by the Danish cartoons of 2005, some of which portrayed the Prophet Muhammed in a manner deemed offensive by the OIC, the resolution was opposed by the United States, most European nations, Japan, India and a number of other nations.
    Nonetheless, it has now been adopted.

Oderint dum metuant.

Excerpted from American Thinker so click on the link for the full article.

"The Washington-based Reform Party of Syria is circulating a remarkable editorial by veteran Egyptian-born journalist Youssef Ibrahim, asserting that "a sense of reality among Arabs is spreading though commentary by Arab pundits, letters to editors, and talk shows on Arab TV" based on realization that "The war with Israel is over-and they won." Ibrahim challenges Palestinians to abandon terrorism which compels "your children to play in the sewers of Gaza" and instead to "let a new future begin." The Need for Patience Israel, drawing lessons from the 2006 Lebanon war, is proceeding methodically. Its ground forces are poised outside Gaza's cities, ready for the perilous end-game. Hamas rocket fire has been reduced from 200 to 20 per day. There is increasing friction between beleaguered Hamas gunmen and leaders urging them to martyrdom from the safety of Damascus or underground hideouts. In the interests of achieving durable and sustainable peace, and inflicting a signal defeat on Iran, Israel should be given time to do what the diplomats have failed to do, i.e., smash Hamas terrorism. Notwithstanding manipulation of world public opinion by Hamas' "CNN strategy," Israel deserves support from everyone who believes that terrorists must be resisted."

Certe, toto, sentio nos in kansate non iam adesse

You Can Crash on My Couch (or Hide in My Attic) if You Need To: A Message to My Jewish Friends
by Rob Taylor on January 12th, 2009
"Looks pretty bad out there, huh? In less than twenty years we’ve shifted in this country from considering anti-Semitism a sure sign of barbarity to having the left use it as a valid political point. Twenty years ago (and I was in high school so I was fairly naive) I would have told a person who claimed there would be pogroms in Europe against Jews starting up in the 21st century that they were paranoid, stupid or likely a combination of both. I would have been wrong.
The left, specifically the left in this country, has managed to cover up some of its very dark early history, as Jonah Goldberg’s book Liberal Fascism admirably exposes. Some, but not all, and despite the “moderate” left Democrats long using the Ku Klux Klan as a paramilitary wing, right up into the 70s as a matter of fact, and despite the “Hard Left” being quite open about wanting to overthrow our country and establish a Soviet or Maoist style government (neither of which were welcoming to Jews, Gays or other minorities) Jews have long believed themselves at home on the left and have recruited other disenfranchised communities to join them.
In return the left, along with their Islamist allies, are preparing the way for a second Holocaust not just in Israel, but in Europe and even on our own shores."

Madonna targeted by Muslim fanatics over Israel's attack on Gaza

By Daniel Jones The People
"Superstar's fear as Jewish links make her a target over the Gaza war Islam fanatics vow to behead Madonna Ex-Israeli agents guard her 24hrs a day She warns Guy: Beef up kids' security
By Daniel Jones Daniel.Jones@People.Co.Uk
Madonna has urgently beefed up her family's security after being targeted by Muslim fanatics seeking revenge for Israel's attacks on Gaza.
One Palestinian terrorist chief has threatened to BEHEAD the superstar who is a dedicated member of the Jewish Kabbalah sect.
Madonna is also desperately worried for the safety of her children Lourdes, 12, Rocco, eight, and adopted David Banda, three.
We can reveal the 50-year-old singer has now...
Got two ruthless Israeli former secret service agents to beef up her security.
Warned her ex-husband Guy Ritchie his home in busy central London is vulnerable to attack when he has the kids.
Told him to MOVE to a more secure pad where the children will be safe.
A source close to the singer said: "Madonna is well known for her Kabbalah faith and support for Israel, having visited the country several times."

Hard to say how devoted Madonna is to Kabbalah, perhaps as much as Richard Geere is to Buddhism. Hollywood types seem to regard religion like a fashion accessory which may be picked up or discarded at a whim. No religion is taken seriously in Hollywood except, perhaps, for Christian Science. Tom Wolfe coined the phrase "terrorist chic" to describe the infatuation rich liberals have for sociopathic thugs out of a vague sense of guilt for their wealth and privilege. Maybe news like this will shake them out of this delusion, but I doubt it.

Double Standard

"Doctors in Gaza say the total number of Palestinians who have been killed since the aerial bombardment began Dec. 27, followed by the ground offensive a week later, is close to 870, roughly half of them civilians. Thirteen Israelis, including 10 soldiers and three civilians, have died."

Much has been said about the asymmetry between Israeli and Gazian casualties, so far the ratio is about two orders of magnitude more Gazians killed or wounded than Israelites. This allegedly due to the "disproportionate response" of the IDF. Perhaps the fact that the Government of Israel is more concerned with the lives of their citizens than Hamas is concerned with the lives of Gazians. Israel builds bomb shelters and warning sirens to protect its citizens from Hamas rockets while Hamas plants booby traps in schools, hospitals and homes to maximize civilian deaths when Israel counter attacks.

It is alleged that Israels blockade was an "act of war" that justifies Hamas rocket attacks. Two facts must be remembered: first the blockade was necessary to stop Hamas suicide bombers from crossing the border to murder Israelites, second Egypt - very sensibly - instituted a blockade of its own but no Hamas rockets are fired at Egypt.

And now for something completely wierd.

Kristallnacht Redux

Outrage over proposal to boycott Jewish-owned shops

"Jewish leaders in Rome today expressed outrage over a trades union proposal to 'identify and boycott' Jewish-owned shops in the Italian capital amid fears of a resurgence of anti-Semitism linked to Israeli actions in Gaza.
Jewish leaders said the proposal, put forward by Giancarlo Desiderati, leader of the Flaica-Uniti-Cub union, which represents 8,000 shop assistants in Rome, was reminiscent of the anti-Semitic racial laws adopted 70 years ago by the Fascist dictatorship of Benito Mussolini in imitation of Nazi Germany." Hitler and Mohammed were very similar in many ways.

In Australia trade unionists have joined Hamas demonstrators in Melbourne. Syd Ryan, President of CUPE, had called for the removal of Jewish professors in Canadian Universities much reminiscent of what the NAZI party did in Germany in the 1930's. Socialists, some trade unions have made common cause with Islamofascist anti-semitism worldwide.

Meanwhile Hamas continues to fire rockets into Israel during a temporary ceasefire to facilitate humanitarian supply efforts.

From her lips to God's ear: The fury of a bereaved Palestinian mother captures evil of Hamas in Gaza

From her lips to God's ear: The fury of a bereaved Palestinian mother captures evil of Hamas in Gaza: "At least some of them know the identity of their tormentors. A New York Times dispatch captured an excruciating moment that took place in a hospital morgue, where a mother had just found half of the body of her 17-year-old daughter.
'May God exterminate Hamas!' screamed the woman in crystal-clear understanding that the terrorist band's reckless, inhuman actions had brought death to her child"
Too bad the MSM lacks this clarity.

Al-Qaeda Hiding Behind Pedobear for British terror attacks

Al-Qaeda Hiding Behind Pedobear for British terror attacks:

"Al-Qaeda is using pedophile websites to plot terror attacks on Britain according to British Security Services.
Al-Qaeda is using the sites due to the levels of security employed: paedophile sites are said to be password-protected and encrypted to avoid detection from police, which apparently makes them great for secretly plotting terrorist attacks as well.
A security source quoted in The Mirror said “Using child pornography sites appears to be al-Qaeda’s latest desperate attempt to avoid detection. Sadly, the high levels of secrecy, passwords and encryption demanded by paedophiles means their websites can offer good cover for terrorists.”
Pedophiles and terrorists: a snappy headline waiting to be had, but not really surprising either."

Seems about right, Islam the "Religion of Pedophilia," after all the Prophet Mohammad consummated his marriage to Aisha when she was only nine years old.

Sun Tzu says...

Hamas has many allies among western media among them this French TV network, France 2.
  • "French public television network France 2 on Tuesday revealed they had aired photographs that allegedly showed destruction caused by the Israel Air Force during Operation Cast Lead, which were in fact taken during a different incident in 2005, one in which Gaza civilians were killed by an explosion caused by militants in the Strip. The footage aired on Channel 2 on Tuesday afternoon showed dozens of dead bodies, including Hamas gunmen and citizens, which the channel said were killed by an IAF bombing raid on January 1st. It later came to light that the channel had instead aired footage of the devastation caused after a truck full of explosives blew up in the Jabaliya Refugee Camp."


Pallywood has been known to dig up bodies and spread them around for for gullible western media to photograph, stage fake funerals where the corpse gets up and walks away afterward. Check out some earlier blogs for some examples. France 2 was involved in the shabby cover-up of the Muhammad al-Dura affair. Readers may recall TV footage of a terrified father and son cowering in the midst of a firefight where the 12 year old Muhammad al-Dur was "killed." Seems the lad is alive and well and the whole scene was a hoax by France 2

Mundus vult decipi, ergo decipiatur

The Art of War states that all war is based on deception. The great deceit here is that the Gaza war is a war between Israel and Hamas. This and the war in Iraq, the war in Afghanistan, the war in Kashmir, the insurgencies in Thailand and the Philippines are all parts of one great war: the war between western civilization and Islamic barbarity.

RealClearPolitics - Articles - The Gaza Rules

RealClearPolitics - Articles - The Gaza Rules:
"Indeed, this weird war mimics the politically correct, zero-tolerance policies of our public schools, where both the bully and his victim are suspended once physical violence occurs."

Jihad Watch
"Hamas is waging a classic, Islamic jihad against the Jews, a non-Islamic people who have returned to their native land not as dhimmi but as warriors equipped to defend themselves from the Muslim armies massed around them. Like children in a potentially fatal game of blind man's bluff, though, most people are intellectually, morally and/or intestinally unprepared to recognize this. As Robert Spencer noted a couple of days ago, Israeli President Shimon Peres is also clueless on this count, telling Haaretz on December 30: 'Nobody in this world understands what are Hamas' goals and why it continues to fire missiles. This shooting has no point, no logic, and no chance.' "

The Big Day?

2 January 1492 the last Moorish foothold on the Iberian Peninsula, Grenada, fell to the armies of Isabel and Ferdinand. Osama bin Laden seems to be fond of using anniversaries of famous Islamic defeats for committing his atrocities.
