Morales and Bolivia---

Bolivia's president Evo Morales is attempting to push through some reforms and ensure the presidency certain powers and authority that are both applauded and denounced by the Bolivian masses.

Since winning the presidential election by a margin of over 25% last year Morales has been reviewing promised changes for Bolivia and has discussed ways to effect those changes. Now he's ready to move from the research and development phase of his reforms to the next steps--- set up and implementation.

Morales, Bolivia's first indeginious president, promised to assign power and wealth to Bolivia's Indian majority. He has also suggested the country's new constitution eliminate the Senate which is controlled by the opposition, effectively removing the dissenting Senators from any government decision making processes.

Further, of the country's nine state governors only three support Morales. The remaining six have severed ties with him and his administration in angst and three regional assemblies have denounced his policies and declared states of emergency.

However, his popularity has been buoyed recently by an October 28th. agreement between major foreign oil companies and Bolivia that would give the government a majority of the company's oil revenues, part of Morales' nationalization decree.

Recently, the United States agreed to extend a key trade agreement and the Inter-American Development Bank has decided to forgive hundreds of millions of dollars of Bolivia's foreign debt.

Morales' political party, Movement Toward Socialism (MAS) is in complete control of the movement to write a new Bolivian constitution. Morales is calling upon Bolivian legislators to adopt a bill that would give him the authority to remove and replace state governors, his most vocal opponents at this time.

The party's majority in the lower house of Congress recently approved and forwarded a controversial land bill backed by Morales that allows the government to seize private land it deems unproductive for redistribution to the landless poor.

The opposition controlled Senate has yet to approve of both the land reform bill and the bill assigning the president authority to remove sitting governors. These will most likely face very stiff opposition in the coming months.

Morales is loved and hated almost equally within Bolivia. His opponents and supporters hold rallies and demonstrations throughout the country decrying or hailing Morales' suggested reforms and the new constitutional challenges.

According to comments from those in opposition and support alike his direction remains cloudy, not fully revealed.

From the opposition and some of those "in the middle" there is concern that Morales' proposed reforms mirror those of previous Bolivian leaders--- Those who tended to use strong arm tactics to rule the country.

Still, others are simply uncertain. They're uncertain what Morales truly wants for Bolivia.

Either way, his "revolution" is under way--- only time will tell.

6 imams removed from U.S. Airways flight---

According to an article in the Associated Press 6 imams were removed from U.S. Airways flight 300 bound for Phoenix from Minneapolis at around 6:30 p.m. Monday, November 20, 2006. The six were returning to Phoenix after attending a conference in Minneapolis of the North American Imams Federation. There were approximately 150 attendees at this conference, including Representative-elect Keith Ellison, Democrat-Minnesota--- the first Muslim elected to the United States Congress.

Evidently three of the imams said their evening prayers in the airport terminal before boarding the aircraft. At least one other passenger became alarmed and passed a note to a flight attendant expressing concerns about the imams and their activities in the terminal.

The flight attendant transferred the information to the aircraft's captain who in turn called for airport security and eventually the police. The imams were subsequently removed from the aircraft by the police and the police "humiliated us in a very disrespectful way" according to Omar Shahin of Phoenix, president of the North American Imams Federation.

"Unfortunately, this is a growing problem of singling out Muslims or people perceived to be Muslims at airports, and it's one that we've been addressing for some time," council spokesman Ibrahim Hooper said.

The other 141 passengers on the flight were rescreened and departed Minneapolis for Phoenix 3 hours later.

The 6 imams stayed behind.

My thoughts:

Perhaps if the imams in this country took a more vocal, up front approach to denouncing their radical, intolerant, militant muslim counterparts then much of this angst and fear would diminish.

This is nothing more than a response to islam as it is perceived in the United States. It seems to me if the imams truly wish to turn this around they'd be best served taking an aggressive and very obvious approach against the fundamental, radical islamist factions. To date, they remain silent on the subject--- silently condoning the militant muslims.

Acts or omissions are tell tale signs of participation, one way or the other.

CNN dumped by Stoney Creek Inn!

The Stoney Creek Inn chain has pulled CNN from their television offerings for “CNN's decision to show video of Iraqi insurgent snipers targeting U.S. troops,” according to Brit Hume of Fox News.

James Thompson, the president of Stoney Creek Hospitality Corporation made the decision in deference to CNN's "apparent willingness to support terrorists by broadcasting footage of U.S. soldiers being assassinated in Iraq."

Thompson- "“I am repulsed by that judgment, and I made a decision of conscience for myself,” said Thompson, whose company operates 10 hotels in the Midwest. “There comes a time when you either stay silent or speak out, and this was wrong.”

News Busters has a pretty good article on the event. The November 8 news disclosure by Hume revealed that all 10 midwest hotels owned by the Des Moines, Iowa based Stoney Creek Hospitality Corporation will no longer subscribe to CNN.

It's too bad it's a midwest chain. I travel a lot in the Pacific Northwest and would definitely be staying at their motels if they were out this way!

Detroit Metropolitan Airport arrest---

Airport Arrest Turns Up Nuclear Info
Nov 16 9:36 AM US/Eastern
Associated Press

A man was arrested at Detroit Metropolitan Airport after officials say they found him carrying more than $78,000 in cash and a laptop computer containing information about nuclear materials and cyanide.

Sisayehiticha Dinssa, an unemployed U.S. citizen, was arrested Tuesday after a dog caught the scent of narcotics on cash he was carrying, according to an affidavit filed in court.

When agents asked him if he had any cash to declare he said he had $18,000, authorities said. But when agents checked his luggage, they found an additional $59,000. When they scrolled through his laptop they said they found the mysterious files.

At a court hearing Wednesday, Dinssa was ordered held in custody until at least until Monday at the request of prosecutors.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Leonid Feller argued Dinssa was a potential risk to the community and federal agents want to get a warrant to search his computer more thoroughly, The Detroit News reported Thursday. U.S. Magistrate Donald Scheer approved Feller's request to detain him.

Dinssa, who is from Dallas, arrived in Detroit from Nigeria by way of Amsterdam and was headed for Phoenix, Feller said. He is charged with concealing more than $10,000 in his luggage, which carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison, the Detroit Free Press reported.

South Korea balks---

On Monday, November 13, South Korea decided it will not impose any new sanctions on North Korea in response to their northern neighbor's nuclear weapons program. Further, the Seoul government refuses to sign the 2003 Proliferation Security Initiative which calls for member nations to interdict and inspect ships suspected to be carrying weapons of mass destruction for rogue states. They fear that such interdictions would jeopardize the fragile cease fire between the two nations.

It appears to me that South Korea's bluff was called by Kim Jong Il and the southern country backed down.

Some Global Views, November 06, 2006---

Here's some opinions from elsewhere, a day late:

At Iviews.com the muslim vote and what affect it will have on the mid term elections here in the United States is discussed. Note how Dr. Aslam Abdullah is Editor-in-Chief of the Muslim Observer tosses out the "loss of almost 650,000 Iraqi civilians", a grossly overestimated figure that has been positively refuted. I guess if it's in print elsewhere and it serves particular needs then it's going to be quoted, right or wrong. I just thought an "Editor-in-Chief" would have a bit more integrity than this. But then again---

Daniel Ortega is moving ahead in the Nicaragua presidential elections.

Bishop Nazir Ali of Rochester, the Church of England’s only Asian bishop criticizes muslim behavior.

Iran is ready to provide missiles to Lebanon. Like they weren't providing them already???

South Korea is planning on working closely with Japan and the United States at the renewed 6 nations disarmament talks that are being proposed with North Korea.

That covered a lot of ground--- eh?

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that Saddam got the death penalty. But then again, is that news?

Iowa, one step closer to dhimmi-land.

As I was reading through some of the blogs this morning I came across this post on the "Militant Islam Monitoring.org".

It's disturbing, at best!

"Iowa Muslims are waging political, and demographic Jihad aimed at transforming Iowa into the first state in the United States of Allah. Last year Governor Tom Vilsack was praised for is dhimmitude by radical Islamist Ibrahim Dremali , Imam of the Islamic Center of Des Moines, when he proclaimed 'Muslim Recognition Day' and Des Moines Mayor Cownie followed suit, making Iowa's transformation to the Umma official. For their part Muslims could not contain their glee at the blissful submission displayed by public officials and saw their public acknowledgement of Islam and regarded it as the first step before conversion."

Read the entire post here.

I guess we continue to appease at all levels.

"Toning down" traditional fiestas---

The Spanish have practiced the tradition of burning effigies of the prophet muhammed for centuries to celebrate the end of their annual festivals.

The festivals are normally held in Catalonia, Valencia and the Balearic Islands and include active participation by local residents. These residents don medieval costumes and re-enact ancient, historical battles that occurred between the Moors and the Christians during the Reconquista (reconquest) period.

The fiestas celebrate events in 1492, when the Catholic kings of northern Spain defeated and expelled muslim forces, effectively ending more than 800 years of brutal muslim rule.

In the past the festivities culminated with the burning of mannequins of the Mahoma, a figure based on the prophet mohammed to represent the final defeat of islam in the region. In some villages the head of the figure is stuffed with gunpowder and detonated with a cigar, while in others the dummy is decapitated and its head is thrown from the castle walls.

However, this year the local authorities have opted to “tone” down the rituals, hoping to appease the muslim and avoid a repeat of the lawless rioting that followed last year's publication of Danish cartoons of muhammed.

Organizers of the festival in the Valencian village of Bocairent will not be filling the head of the Mahoma with fireworks this year. "As it could hurt some people's feelings, we decided not to do it," Antonio Valdes, the mayor of Bocairent told El Pais, the daily newspaper.

The festival at Beneixama was also toned down, following a trend to avoid inflaming tensions in Spain which is, again, home to a growing number of Muslims.

Another concession to islam, the religion of peace.

Sharing a post from---

Gateway Pundit. The news that's not reported!

Iraqi Sunni tribe helps protects Iraqi Shiite tribe
By Ali Alshumary in Alkut Iraq

The Sunni Aljuhaishat tribe helped protected men from the Alkufaifan Shiite tribe after armed fighting broke out between the Alkufaifan and an armed group. Men from the Aljuhaishat tribe answered a call for help from Alkufaifan even though there were light clashes between these two tribes just a few days ago.

As soon as Aljuhaishat answered the call of the Shiite Alkufaifan tribe it became evident that the attackers were not from a local Sunni tribe. The attackers were creating strife between the two tribes by attacking the Shiite tribe and making it seem as if the local Sunni tribe Aljuhaishat was attacking the Shiite Alkufaifan tribe. After all day fighting the Shiite Alkufaifan with the support of the Sunni Aljuhaishat tribe, seven of the attackers were killed and three were captured. It became evident that the attackers were members of a murder and robbery gang or militia. Later men from both tribes praised and thanked each other for helping ending the attackers and help the truth come out.

This incident proves the national unity of most Iraqis while turning a blind eye to their sect or origin.


Haider Ajina comments:

The cooperation and comradeship amongst Sunni & Shiite displayed here is very similar to the Iraq I grew up in the 60’s and 70’s before Saddam came to power.

Incidences such as these (Sunni & Shiite helping each other) happen frequently in Iraq. They go unreported in the Western media (see CNN). It is mostly the former Baathists and Alqaida and some Shiite militia who are creating the sectarian strife in Iraq. The foreign influences of Iran and Syria especially fund and aid the strife. Criminal gangs or militia, who can be Sunni or Shiite, are trying to ignite fighting amongst Tribes in Iraq. I could not find further details about these criminals who tried to get Aljuhaishat and Alkufaifan to fight each other. Gladly, cooler heads prevailed and the truth came out.

Regards,
Haider Ajina


The only question I have here is how do we know these criminals weren't from a far more demonic organization--- al qaeda?

John Kerry tastes his foot again!

John Kerry has an uncanny knack for putting his foot in his mouth in oh so many ways.

John Kerry, the flash in the pan self nominated, decorated Viet Nam veteran has now suggested our soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines and coast guardsmen--- our military personnel--- the very backbone of this nation are less than intelligent, incapable of negotiating our educational system and aren't motivated enough to apply any effort to be smart.

Just when I thought my previous rant was enough of a "vent" for me to make it through the day Kerry hits the press with his latest insult to our troops.

“You know, education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. If you don’t, you get stuck in Iraq.” (John Kerry, Los Angeles, October 30, 2006.)

I know soldiers who went into the military after they completed their degrees! Not because they had a contractual obligation to fulfill--- not because they had a previous commitment--- not because of any enlistment bonus but because they believe it was (and still is) the right thing to do!

Because they are Patriots first--- businessmen, teachers, architects, engineers, foresters, computer techs, etc. second. Because they WANT to serve!

There are also those who joined out of moral conviction--- choosing to serve first, attend school second!

I can understand why John Kerry can’t comprehend these ideologies, these certain moral values. I can understand why he would want to question the very character of our military personnel. I can understand his maniacal drive to attempt to destroy the very morale of those who are serving and have served. I can understand Kerry doing this because that is his ilk, that is his very nature, his arrogance, his loftiness--- that is what John Kerry is all about. He is about nothing else other than John Kerry! He’s from the land of the silver spoon--- the pampered pup in the litter. He will sell your soul--- hell, his soul to win a vote!

The man is a vile, despicable, sorry assed excuse for a “man”.

Albeit, he is an attorney AND a politician.

I will say this much, he influenced my vote. I was hedging on some of the candidates--- he nudged me into a couple of decisions that would have been difficult to make up until I read his latest blurbs.

Wow!

The enemy within-

Damn, I'm embarrassed.

I’m not a neo-conservative person nor would I consider myself to be even moderately liberal. I’m conservative on most issues, liberal on some and middle of the road on others.

I’m not a person who subscribes to any political party. I vote for a person not for any particular party’s candidate who simply wishes to promote an agenda--- a platform. So, when I see the politicking that’s been occurring during these last couple of elections I get angry- annoyed and question the motives, tactics and reasoning of a particular candidate, a particular party--- whichever one it might be.

I question their support, their funding sources, their loyalty and patriotism. I wonder why any particular candidate would support a party’s central ideology if that ideology promotes angst, deceit and global humiliation simply to obtain “power” within our government. All parties do it--- all of them do. However, lately the smear tactics, the lies, the assaults on morality, the distortion of facts have reached a new, unprecedented low.

Relevant issues aren’t being discussed. Instead, the politicos choose to attack their opponents personally--- to humiliate and discredit them. The opponent’s morality, family affairs, childhood upbringing, simple mistakes and irrelevant past are assaulted. Distorted “facts” are exposed suggesting the individual is far less a person than he/she claims to be.

Issues addressing illegal immigration, terrorism, health care, abortion, civil rights, private property rights, taxes, the economy--- these issues are cast aside, simply ignored by those candidates who see a need to destroy their opponent’s public image.

Evidently we, the voting public do not have enough common sense, aren’t intelligent enough to determine how this nation’s issues should be addressed. We’re obviously viewed as gossipers, lambs, followers--- citizens who don’t want to help “drive the bus” but want to be driven.

Personally, I could care less if a candidate received a citation for hunting without a license in the 1970’s! I could care less if a candidate blew a .06 on a breathalyzer and was arrested for a driving offense in the 1980’s! I could care less if a candidate had to declare bankruptcy after making a bad business decision--- I could care less about these things if there’s no pattern of continued abuse--- no overall disregard for the law, no living life with wanton and reckless abandon.

It does bother me when politicians abuse their authority to lessen the effects of certain criminal or immoral acts. I don’t appreciate the overall whitewashing of an early morning fatality auto accident, all the while allowing the Senator to continue to “serve”. I don’t condone the rape of our youth, of those who are influenced by power and authority. I don’t appreciate open, obvious assaults on law enforcement officers who are trying to do their jobs. I do believe people who accept bribes in government should be removed from office and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

I could go on but my point is made. The bottom line is that there’s been an erosion of morals in our government. We, the citizens are being misled, snubbed, patronized, humiliated, abandoned and ultimately victimized by our current, serving politicians--- regardless of their party affiliation!

I question their claims that they have this country’s best interests in mind! I question their loyalty to us, the citizens they’re supposed to be representing--- serving!

I’m questioning their patriotism--- their compassion to do what is right, not what will benefit them, their party!

In light of the events that have occurred during this most recent “campaign season” I believe we’ve discovered a renewed threat to our very existence as a nation---

This threat is political greed, corruption--- our troubling politicians. The enemy within.

There, I feel better now, I vented.

Some Global Views, October 29, 2006---

Here's some opinions and views from elsewhere:

Hey, thanks for the "shout out" Rue St. Michel. We seem to be on the same page. Another, more revealing discussion about the 2,500 cops who've been injured in France in 2006! Scroll down to the post.

Is islam nothing more than a public nuisance?

You decide.

Some very, very intense reading regarding muhammad, islam and a bunch of other stuff--- it's so damned revealing! Read it all--- read as much as you can!

And while you're at it, wander on over to the Militant Islamic Monitor Site to check out the latest in a flurry of activities out there in islamoland.

Wrapping things up I'd recommend a very good read at islam's claim to fame--- Islam: The Religion Of Peace. Got there and read whatever you can read over the next 30 days! While you're there try to answer the "head" question--- intriguing.

And they claim they're a tolerant, peaceful lot.

An anonymous perspective.

The following is a comment posted by an anonymous author to this blog in the "comments" section of my previous post. It's a chilling prediction of what's a very REAL possibility in Europe.

How accurate the prediction will be is to be determined by future events. Either way, it should serve as a wake up call for those who fail to recognize the direction islam is pulling the rest of the world.

Here's the comment:

If you synthesize all the information readily available on the web and look at the big picture, you see that Europe as we know it will cease to exist--given present demographic, immigration and political trends--in a few generations. The thousands of years of history, literature, culture, art, philosophy, architecture and invention represented by the people and landscape of Europe are about to be submerged under and destroyed by a spreading tide of Muslims who are largely hostile to everything Infidel Europe represents.

On the physical and political side the Italians, Germans, French, English, Belgians, Scandinavians, Czechs and Poles—all of the European peoples, in fact, are destined to become minorities in their own countries, unable to reproduce themselves in sufficient numbers to sustain themselves and also unable to sustain the weight of their cradle-to grave social welfare and retirement systems. Muslims, on the other hand, have sky-high birth rates and are very adept at milking European welfare systems, so that the Infidels of Europe are paying to support the large families of the very Muslims who will eventually destroy them.

On the psychological side, by accepting the idea of a post-Christian Europe, Europeans have stripped themselves of the one defense and source of power that might have saved them; a fundamental bedrock of Christian religion and morality which could have been the foundation for and source of a renewed “civilizational confidence” which would have enabled Europeans to again value their heritage, culture and civilization enough to defend it against Islamic fanaticism.

That hope is apparently dead and meanwhile the soothing, self-satisfied voices of post-modernism, multiculturalism and political correctness are still very successfully keeping many Europeans in thrall to them and thus unable to see and recognize the approaching Muslim tide. I expect the Intifada to break out in France and spread and grow in violence, year by year, country by country and, as things stand right now, I don’t see the Europeans winning. As a result, I expect to see a trickle, then a flood of refugees pouring out of Europe headed for the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand as things get worse in Europe. As the situation they have created finally dawns on European leaders I also anticipate frantic calls from the very leaders and countries who have spit on the U.S. and mocked her for so long, asking for our help. I suspect that, this time, it will not be forthcoming.

What will Europe look like when Muslims assume control? Using the past history of 1,300 hundred years Muslim raids and wars, conquests and subjugations of Infidels as a guide, I expect great slaughter, looting, rape and destruction, with Christian religious and cultural targets to be especially hard hit—defiled or destroyed. Those European Infidels who survive the initial conquests can look forward to a life as a semi-slave, a “dhimmi”; without any real rights, unable to testify in court, forced to pay a huge annual “protection tax,” the “jizya,” women will become property. The art, philosophy, music, science and other cultural hallmarks that defined European culture will be banned and a great pall of stagnation will envelop Europe—think Afghanistan under the Taliban. A new dark age will settle over Europe and even if, sometime in the future, it is lifted, Europe as we know it will be irretrievably lost.

France and islam---

The continuing 'Intifada' in France is taking it's toll.

Tolerant muslims are testing France and the rest of the European community.

"We are in a state of civil war, orchestrated by radical Islamists," said Michel Thoomis, secretary general of the Action Police trade union. "This is not a question of urban violence any more. It is an intifada, with stones and firebombs."

In France alone 2,500 police officers (at least 14 police officers per day) have been injured in 2006. It's another war on their soil that's exacting it's toll on the French government, culture and communities and threatening all of Europe.

According to other reports this most recent violence is associated with the French muslim community and includes 100 cars that were torched nationwide overnight on October 26, half of them in Paris.

The police claim these figures are higher than normal, stating that between 30 and 50 cars are normally set on fire during an average week.

Wow, so much for the religion of peace and it's claim of tolerance.

Australia's mufti compares women to meat.

From The Australian

Muslim leader blames women for sex attacks

Richard Kerbaj
October 26, 2006


THE nation's most senior Muslim cleric has blamed immodestly dressed women who don't wear Islamic headdress for being preyed on by men and likened them to abandoned "meat" that attracts voracious animals.
In a Ramadan sermon that has outraged Muslim women leaders, Sydney-based Sheik Taj Din al-Hilali also alluded to the infamous Sydney gang rapes, suggesting the attackers were not entirely to blame.

While not specifically referring to the rapes, brutal attacks on four women for which a group of young Lebanese men received long jail sentences, Sheik Hilali said there were women who "sway suggestively" and wore make-up and immodest dress ... "and then you get a judge without mercy (rahma) and gives you 65 years".

"But the problem, but the problem all began with who?" he asked.

The leader of the 2000 rapes in Sydney's southwest, Bilal Skaf, a Muslim, was initially sentenced to 55 years' jail, but later had the sentence reduced on appeal.

In the religious address on adultery to about 500 worshippers in Sydney last month, Sheik Hilali said: "If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it ... whose fault is it, the cats or the uncovered meat?

"The uncovered meat is the problem."

The sheik then said: "If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred."

He said women were "weapons" used by "Satan" to control men.

"It is said in the state of zina (adultery), the responsibility falls 90 per cent of the time on the woman. Why? Because she possesses the weapon of enticement (igraa)."

Muslim community leaders were yesterday outraged and offended by Sheik Hilali's remarks, insisting the cleric was no longer worthy of his title as Australia's mufti.

Young Muslim adviser Iktimal Hage-Ali - who does not wear a hijab - said the Islamic headdress was not a "tool" worn to prevent rape and sexual harassment. "It's a symbol that readily identifies you as being Muslim, but just because you don't wear the headscarf doesn't mean that you're considered fresh meat for sale," the former member of John Howard's Muslim advisory board told The Australian. "The onus should not be on the female to not attract attention, it should be on males to learn how to control themselves."

Australia's most prominent female Muslim leader, Aziza Abdel-Halim, said the hijab did not "detract or add to a person's moral standards", while Islamic Council of Victoria spokesman Waleed Ali said it was "ignorant and naive" for anyone to believe that a hijab could stop sexual assault.

"Anyone who is foolish enough to believe that there is a relationship between rape or unwelcome sexual interference and the failure to wear a hijab, clearly has no understanding of the nature of sexual crime," he said.

Ms Hage-Ali said she was "disgusted and offended" by Shiek Hilali's comments. "I find it very offensive that a man who considers himself as a mufti, a leader of Australia's Muslims, can give comment that lacks intelligence and common sense."

Yesterday, the mufti defended the sermon about "adultery and theft", a recorded copy of which has been obtained and translated by The Australian.

Sheik Hilali said he only meant to refer to prostitutes as "meat" and not any scantily dressed woman with no hijab, despite him not mentioning the word prostitute during the 17-minute talk.

He told The Australian the message he intended to convey was: "If a woman who shows herself off, she is to blame ... but a man should be able to control himself". He said if a woman is "covered and respectful" she "demands respect from a man". "But when she is cheap, she throws herself at the man and cheapens herself."

Sheik Hilali also insisted his references to the Sydney gang rapes were to illustrate that Skaf was guilty and worthy of receiving such a harsh sentence.

Waleed Ali said Sheik Hilali was "normalising immoral sexual behaviour" by comparing women to meat and men to animals and entirely blaming women for being victims.

"It's basically saying that the immoral response of men to women who are not fully covered is as natural and as inevitable as the response of an animal tempted by food," he said.

"But (unlike animals) men are people who have moral responsibilities and the capability in engaging in moral action."

Revelation of the mufti's comments comes after he criticised Mr Howard last month in The Australian for saying a minority of migrant men mistreated their women. Sheik Hilali said such a minority was found in all faiths. "Those who don't respect their women are not true Muslims."

"There's a small percentage found among all religions, but we don't recognise ours as Muslims."

Aziza Abdel-Halim said Sheik Hilali's remarks during Ramadan were inaccurate and upsetting to the Muslim community.

"They are below and beyond any comment (and) do not deserve any consideration."

Our thoughts:

Many thanks to The Australian for bringing this news to our shores.

It's one thing to insult, deceive and humiliate the infidels and dhimmies of the world if you're muslim, it's a whole different thing to insult, deceive and humiliate women of the world regardless of who you are!

We all know that! Well, I thought we did.

This idiot dug himself in deeper by trying to explain his totally outrageous remarks. Richard Kerbaj did a great job of reporting this aburd event.

Is there no end to this insanity?

I'm going to break from the muzzies a bit to share some rather disturbing information with you. Evidently we're being spied upon! Yes, all of us! Even now, as I write this post my thoughts are being monitored and exploited.

Here's how I learned about this travesty of justice!

I stumbled across a blog this morning that is managed by someone who calls himself James F. Marino. His blog (or at least his server) is situated in Sevilla, Spain in the Andalucia region. The name of the blog is "9-11 The Mother Of All Black Operations". I'm not sure if I'm going to link it here, I'm not so sure I want to. The CIA, NSA and a whole bunch of other agencies with initials for names might storm my door if I do.

---but it is humorous, in an odd, absurd, perverted little way.

I want to establish up front that I don't normally go about criticizing other blogs--- that's not my nature--- that's not cool. But this guy must be smoking something far stronger than "B.C. Bud".

Mr. Marino claims to "have been a US Government Mind Control Target/Satellite Prisoner (Synthetic Telepathy) for over 25 years, being subjected to nonconsensual human experimentation through the National Security Agency's remote neural monitoring -- satellite program." He goes on to claim he's had his "mind both scanned and influenced by this technology 24/7/365 in an outrageous abuse of my Constitutional rights"--- and the sad part is, he BELIEVES it! ---I think.

This mind control target/satellite prisoner, Mr. Marino is so incessed with these thoughts that he confesses to surfing the net for thousands of hours to find information relating to the United States (primarily the CIA's) "mind control" and "satellite" research and development program.

He authors extremely long posts to his blog, has a "black-ops" conspiracy theory for scores and scores of events over the years and appears to be in his own little orbit in a faraway galaxy.

He states in his blog--- in his profile that"over the past three years I've spent thousands of hours researching this information and finally learned about the NSA's remote neural monitoring technology and its electronic mind reading capablilities."

Evidently he's realized these techniques that are allegedly practiced and perfected by agents of the United States exploit and "hone in on your body's invisible EMF waves."

Damn EMF waves anyways! I knew someone would find a way to exploit them someday. I just knew it. Does this mean we have to wear the tinfoil again.

It's so uncomfortable and noisy--- especially when it rains.

Our activities, our very thoughts are so damned important to agents of the United States that he claims we're all at risk! "This illegal government spying is happening to myself as well as millions of other Americans who have no idea that they are being both watched and videotaped by way of NSA spy satellites."

I don't know about you but this breach of my rights, my civil liberties is simply immoral and unacceptable! I'm going to post a note to my congressman as soon as I get back from Costco after buying up all of the aluminum foil!

---oh, and for those who actually read this post this far--- if you truly want to follow up on his "site" here's the link to 9-11 The Mother Of All Black Operations--- enjoy!

Joseph, at Western Wisdom wrote a piece about "9-11 The Mother Of All Black Operations" and posted it to Western Wisdom on September 16, 2006. The article is titled "Bonafide NutJob Blogger".

Having read Joseph's post after I wrote mine I decided I'd go back over mine and edit out a bunch of stuff--- why repeat the obvious and previously stated? Besides, Joseph's was more direct and far more articulate.

The peculiar part of Joseph's article wasn't what Joseph had written but how Mr. Marino responded.

Mr. Marino, your room's ready.

Islam, shame on you!

The following is a comment, a response to the article entitled "Violence Casts Shadow on Muslim Holiday" authored by Zeina Karam, Associated Press. I found it posted on Yahoo's news board (World News) on 10/23/06, 5:31 p.m. The following comment is message number 251 in that particular article's comment thread.

This person's viewpoint is personal, real, direct and from her heart! What she has to say is echoed by so many others who have managed to break free from this cult called islam!

Here's the quote:

"PBS Shame On You, Nonie Darwish!

I am a former Moslem, born and raised in the Middle East. I am very disappointed and almost scared after watching your presentation about Islam. One of the reasons I fled to the United States of America was to escape the oppressive regime of Islam in the Middle East. From a former Moslem, these people are in the US to Islamize America and have a scary agenda. They audaciously buy churches and convert them into mosques!

I think your show was insensitive to the Judeo-Christian community of the United States. Islam is cruel, anti-women, anti-religious freedom and anti-personal freedom in general. How could you sympathize with a religion that kills adulterers, homosexuals and people who convert out of Islam? How could you present Islam with such affection? I am sorry that PBS failed to represent the oppression, fear and the straight jacket I had to endure when I lived under that crazy regime.

In the show, you stressed how the West should understand Islam. Why is America responsible for understanding every little and big culture and religion around the World, failing which we are branded bigots and racists? How about asking the Moslems if they could open their minds and hearts and understand the West? Perhaps they will slow down their terrorism, burning our flags and hijacking airplanes. Unfortunately, the Middle East has no clue about the American culture and they only judge us by Hollywood! How about US media educating Moslems about US culture and the virtues of our Constitution? Did that ever occur to you?

When I married a Christian man in my home country twenty-five years ago, I could have been killed by Moslems for daring to do so. I was questioned about my husband's religion even by Moslem workers at the US embassy, who asked me point blank if he converted to Islam, implicitly threatening to report me to Moslem authorities! I personally know Moslem women who were circumcised against their will! How could you defend a religion that declares a "fatwa", or death sentence, to anyone who is critical of the religion? How could you defend a religion that inspired 9/11? Of course not all Moslems are terrorists, but unfortunately, the majority of ‘moderate’ Moslems respect the fundamentalists as ‘true’ Moslems and even feel guilty toward them. If this were not true we should be seeing massive displays of support for the US, strong denouncements of radical Islam by the moderates. This has not happened. Instead, the most vocal Islamic groups in the West are taking a confrontational stance, complaining of discriminatory treatment, taking their cue from liberal civil-rights groups.

The liberal media is only too eager to egg them on.

I now write articles critical of Islam and speak to many groups about the Middle East but have to use a pseudonym so I do not get killed by some of your Moslem friends in the US mosques you were interviewing! They have no shame to be complaining of discrimination after 9/11, thanks to Media outlets like you who gave them a voice. The US goes out of its way to protect them. What discrimination? Are you kidding? These mosques in the US are financed by Saudi money and have an agenda and they scare people like me who want to write and speak freely. Scared and oppressed former Moslems like me could be killed by these Moslem extremists in US mosques. There are many moderate Moslems and former Moslems like me who feel intimidated by some US Moslem extremists. Former Moslems have to be given a voice on why they escaped Islam. People like me and oppressed Christians and Jews in the Moslem World had no say on your show. That is very sad. I wish you had defended my right to choose or reject Islam without getting killed.

Is Islam now the "in" thing to defend to sabotage America, or did Saudi money corrupt you?!"

islam's "call" for tolerance---

“Top clerics in the Middle East called Tuesday for acceptance and dialogue following a year marked by angry and sometimes violent Muslim reactions to "blasphemous" caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed published in a Danish newspaper last year, and a speech by Pope Benedict XVI linking Islam with violence in September.

The Pope simply stated facts and supported these facts with a well known historical reference. He doesn’t “link” islam with violence--- muslims link islam with violence!

The Pope stated the obvious.

The “religion of peace”, islam is not what it claims to be. It was founded on violence, promotes hatred and terror, immorality, genocide and intolerance for those who are not muslims.

The false prophet muhammed actively practiced and encouraged slaughtering, beheading, torturing, mutilating, burning, killing, raping, enslaving and otherwise destroying those dhimmies, infidels who would not convert and/or who defied islam.

He took a 6 yrs. old wife and had sex with his step son’s wife. allah, the muslim’s “god” not only supported this false prophet but encouraged all muslims to emulate muhammed’s life as a proper and respectful way to live.

I find it hard to believe any religion, any cult could be openly accepted in any society if it practices hatred, genocide, pedophilia, perversion, slavery, torture, mutilation, homicide and blatant destruction of life and property.

Intolerance and violence is to islam as heat and smoke is to fire.

There are the moderate muslims who remain silent and turn the other way when the radical muslims follow the way of muhammed--- kidnapping, torturing, raping, burning, beheading, mutilating and/or killing those who disagree with them and the so called “religion of peace”.

By their very silence, their failure to adequately intervene they not only condone but openly support and encourage the radical side of islam to continue to expand, exist and succeed. The moderate muslims are those muslims who would control islam’s “government” when the time does come for them to do so. They would impose Sharia law and would use their radical brothers to enforce it much as they use their radical brothers to try to indoctrinate and convert the dhimmies, infidels today.

This occurs as we speak--- as we hear of “calls for tolerance” by the moderates.

How can one not view this call for tolerance as a diversion, nothing more. A moderate's attempt to take the eyes of the world off of the atrocities actually occurring throughout all nations where muslims have a strong backing, currently. How can one view this "call for tolerance" as an effort to show the “good will” of the islamic community while the real atrocities continue to occur?

Lies and deceit are an accepted practice in the muslim community so long as they are practiced on non-muslims. Theft is condoned so long as a non-muslim is the “victim”, rape isn’t considered rape if the woman is married and it’s not witnessed by four males. In islam, if a married woman is raped she can and most likely will be charged with
adultery
provided the act was witnessed by four or more males.

So, this “call for tolerance” is one that should be viewed with tongue in cheek--- action is proof. You professed moderate muslims need to start acting out against your radical brehren! Prove to the rest of the watching world you're sincere about your "tolerance", your desire to meld with other cultures.

Put your actions where your silence is.

Prove you’re a religion of peace.

I challenge muslims to provide me with references, resources and links that will support the claims of islam.

And a simple reference to the qur’an doesn’t wash--- sorry.

A lot of my supporting references and resources are found in the links on the right and those linked by them, others are found in searches and libraries.

The tolerant---

---Taliban and muslims.

This is chilling!

Take a look and try to remember as you're watching that islam is the religion of peace.

Muslim outrage in the making?

I've borrowed this photo from The New Zonka Blog because I've found it so ironic yet so (most likely) innocent.

The manufacturer of these piggy banks evidently have no idea of the irony and hilarity associated with a piggy bank named mohammed. This is certainly going to raise the ire of someone in the muslim community.

I'd buy several just for speculation--- the value will most likely skyrocket as a novelty item, if nothing else.

Oh, what a collectible.

A recent post on a Yahoo discussion thread---

*quote*

ISLAM IN AUSTRALIA

Muslims who want to live under Islamic Sharia law were told (earlier in 2006) to get out of Australia as the government targeted radicals in a bid to head off potential terror attacks. A day after a group of mainstream Muslim leaders pledged loyalty to Australia at a special meeting with Prime Minister John Howard he and his ministers made it clear that extremists would face a crackdown.

Treasurer Peter Costello hinted that some radical clerics could be asked to leave the country if they did not accept that Australia was a secular state and its laws were made by parliament. "If those are not your values, if you want a country which has Sharia law or a theocratic state then Australia is not for you," he said on national television. "I'd be saying to clerics who are teaching that there are two laws governing people in Australia. One, the Australian law and another, the Islamic law, that this is false. If you can't agree with parliamentary law, independent courts, democracy and would prefer Sharia law and have the opportunity to go to another country which practices it perhaps then, that's a better option," Costello said.

Asked whether he meant radical clerics would be forced to leave he said those with dual citizenship could possibly be asked to move to the other country. Education Minister Brendan Nelson later told reporters that Muslims who did not want to accept local values should "clear off".

"Basically, people who don't want to be Australians and don't want to live by Australian values and understand them well, then they can basically clear off" he said. Separately, Howard angered some Australian Muslims on Wednesday by saying he supported spies monitoring the nations mosques.

BRITS, AMERICANS, CANADIANS, DANES, DUTCH, FRENCH, SWEDES, GERMANS ... ARE YOU LISTENING?

This is Leadership with guts! The way it is. The way it should be. Our men and women died in two world wars to get us this country and we are giving it away.

Now this is refreshing, politicians with spines! A novel concept and something I've heard has occurred in the U.S.A. long ago. Fantasy? Fairy Tales?

Nevertheless, I'm convinced an American politician has stood up to adversity at one time or another and challenged the challenger.

French Police face 'permanent infada'.

The French police, after the riots of last year and the government's concessions to the islamic community are being targeted, ambushed, tricked and trapped in muslim communities by muslim youths during this ramadan period.

Here's the latest information coming from the newslines.

There's simply no end to the arrogance of the muslims!

U.K. veils and the religion of peace.

South asia and islam. The religion of peace tolerating our hindu friends?

An insiders view of the religion of peace's school of terror.

And they're claiming they're a tolerant, peaceful lot.

Islam, the religion of peace continues---

---as this mother's son now knows!

islam consists of fanatics following the despicable practices of a false prophet who had their allah's complete support.

The "religion" claims to be the "religion of peace" yet the false prophet muhammed raped, enslaved, mutilated, murdered, hacked, burned, beheaded, hung and otherwise slaughtered all of those who would not convert that he (an his armies) could get their hands on.

It's a "religion" founded on impure and fundamentally wrong principals veiled by the argument that it is the religion of "peace".

Calling it the religion of peace does not make it the religion of peace.

This cult of islam is a dangerous cancer on the face of this earth that we all share.

The practitioners demand concessions from people and their governments that no group would or should demand. Concessions that, when clustered elevate their status above those of the dhimmies, infidels--- as they believe they should be!

The islamists, muslims insist that those of us who are not muslims convert, die or serve at their feet--- there is no equality for us, there is no tolerance.

In the interim, until we all convert or get slaughtered they insist we tolerate them and even go so far as to afford them privileges not afforded to others.

Sure, islam--- the religion of peace.

What a farce.

A quote from the Hindu Unity site.

This is telling it like it is!

"ISLAMIC MOSQUES ARE TERRORIST MANUFACTURING PLANTS

Beware of Mosques & Islamic centers in your country. We infiltrated a Mosque in the U.S. as new converts on June 25th, 2006 Though we were welcomed as new converts, we were exposed to Mass-Anti U.S. and extreme hatred towards non-muslims. When we asked the Imam on how he felt about Al-Queida, he responded "These are our brothers, when they die, we die with them. Islam will conquer this world either with peace or with war."

When we asked how we can help the Islamic cause, the Imam's response was "Learn from your brothers who are dieing everyday. Engage the enemy with everything you have. Use the Koran as your guide."

This paints a pretty direct, candid picture of islam, the religion of peace--- doesn't it.

Some global views- October 15, 2006

Here's some more information regarding our Religion of Peace friends.

A simple, peaceful, logical religious practice this flagellation thing.

The Crusades in comparison to islamic practices of today--- keeping in mind that the Crusades began over 900 years ago.

Muslims are quick to drag the Crusades into any discussions relating to current radical islamic events.

And in the United Kingdom a poll shows that Most people want try harder to integrate. Go figure! That's not going to be too well received.

Can the hapless United Nations even begin to impose sanctions on North Korea? We'll just have to wait and see.

The religion of peace--- preparing to spread peace in Ethiopia. You have to search a bit for the article.

Stay vigilant and keep aware.

The irony of it all!

I've been studying this religion of peace thing for quite awhile now and realize there's a lot to be said about hiding behind a religion.

Following an interesting and lively online message exchange with an islamic practitioner I realized there's absolutely no way we're going to convince these people that there's some serious contradictions in their "religion".

They're indoctrinated- they're obsessed- they're fanatical- even at the lowest level. They refuse to believe the facts you point out to them. They dismiss the obvious challenges to the religion's declared purpose.

In short, they're friggin' BRAINWASHED!!!!

And they handle it oh-so-well!

The online discussion I had today with this particular muslim mirrored dozens of previous online discussions I've had with other low level, non-descript muslims who believe we're all lying.

This particular gentleman started climbing my tree after I responded to a Reuter's story regarding France banning female head covering in their public schools.

At first my comment was a bit skewed- I was totally taken aback that France had banned anything relating to islam. I started out on that tone. I was eventually challenged by this particular individual about my remarks regarding the religion of peace. He seemed to have taken a bit of offense to the facts I was plopping out there for all to see.

The bottom line was he didn't like it! He didn't like the information I was posting.

Throughout his posts he challenged me for substantiation. When I provided the relevant links (Religion of Peace, Faith Freedom, Islam Watch and The Muslim Question... I didn't have enough time for all of the sites I read) he dismissed each of these sites as hate sites. He wouldn't discuss them, wouldn't acknowledge them, wouldn't even reprint them in his comments back to me.

What's interesting is that he condemned me from the get-go as a vile, misleading, uneducated muslim basher who's only purpose was to promote hatred for islam to those who followed our discussion thread. He refused to acknowledge the links I provided other than to dismiss them, he insisted I was a liar without providing any relevant facts that suggested I lied, he insisted I was a "basher" and had no place on this earth.

It was lively, it was entertaining and it was--- chilling.

The more I deal with these people the more I realize they're so damned blinded---- and dangerous.

I did mention the religion of peace's tolerance and understanding--- using the link I used here.

He went ballistics! He refused to visit the site, refused to discuss the contradictions of islam, refused to accept that his religion was responsible for atrocities throughout the world.

In short, he was definitely in denial--- like soooo many others I've interacted with.

So, this is the typical islamic/muslim response to the real world activities--- the real world.

Denial, refusal, accusations of "bashing".

It's pretty damned serious when your muslim neighbor is so ingrained, indoctrinated, out and out brainwashed to the extent that these folks are!

WOW!!!

Father Zakaria Boutros is speaking the truth-

-and the world of islam isn't happy about it.

According to a recent article on the CBN News website Father Zakaria is calling on those in the muslim community to rethink this whole qu'ran thing. He's been pointing out inconsistencies in the qu'ran and "questions the muhammed directly. Zakaria has determined muhammed had his mind set on wordly pursuits, not on peace and the lord.

“He said that his concerns are three things: women, perfume, and food,” Zakaria said. “Where is the kingdom of God? Where is the glory of God? Where is the salvation? Where is love? Where is the mission of a true Prophet of God?”

Zakaria's comments have generated intense uproar throughout the islamic world. Followers of the religion of peace have even placed a $60 million dollar bounty on his head but this doesn't slow him down.

In fact he's intentionally provocative so as to "challenge the muslims to examine their faith."

We need this type of dialogue to occur globally!

A well deserved hat tip to Father Zakaria!

Hugo Chavez is a blithering idiot!

He's trying to convince someone, anyone who will listen to him that the United States government has put a price on his head.

Why? Why would our government do that?

Hell, he's not worth the price of a bullet.

He's also reaching out to the Arab community, shoreing up the oil side of things so South America, Africa and the Middle East can effectively sanction the United States relating to our huge appetite for fossil fuels.

It works for me. I say cut those strings. Keep our money out of their greedy pockets. We should tap into our own reserves and accelerate alternative fuels research.

Hugo (The Pig) Chavez can be found here.

I'm just repeating what's being reported throughout the world.

A montage of peace!

Islamic style.

Let's start with this loving exchange between a mother and her child before she sends him off to school.

Isn't this a touching sight?

As a parent I have to appreciate the care she's taking to ensure her little, "chubby-wubby-warrior" is all wired in and ready for that little jihad that's a'coming down the 'pike.

I think I'll go to the local mosque and buy some c-4 or something for the kids after work today.

Then we have this little tiger.

He's almost as big as the gun he's carrying. Isn't that cute? The problem is he's probably more efficient with that gun then he is with his reading, writing and math skills.

Note his playground buddies around him. It's a great thing to see all of the kids on the block playing together again isn't it.




What do you think the whole idea might be here?

What do you think this guy's intentions are?



They truly are the religion of peace aren't they?


Surely we have nothing to fear from the peace mongers.



I mean, they preach the qur'an.


The book of Islam, of peace, of world domination?

Look at it this way, we'll always have the United Nations to help us! They're remarkably effective when the French are in charge.

From Democracy Frontline

From the "Comments" section of a post entitled I Never Had Sex With That Woman on the Democracy Frontline blog.

This is occurring in Australia as we speak! Hell, it's occurring all around us.

"Doc, for a while I have been gathering information on Shepparton, in Vic, for an article, but the more I dig, the more appears and the worse it gets. “Shep” was one of the first Australian rural cities to discover the joys of having grateful members of the Ummah as neighbours. Briefly, the community has been forced to accept “Muslim only” hours at their local swimming pool. This may not sound, to a city dweller, so onerous, but Shep pool is huge and plays an important role in the community, so far from beaches, flowing streams etc, and summer is long and hot up there.

There is a very tighly clamped “lid” on events pertaining to the social fabric of Shep, a lot of fear, a lot of censorship, a lot of circling the wagons and a lot of denial, but one thing is certain to anyone who goes looking for themselves, there is massive, seething resentment there, and it is not being addressed. Wagga is the NSW equivalent, a large city on the north eastern corner of the Sunraysia/Murrumbidgee Irrigation Area. (Muslim Immigration Area???)It was fruit picking/cannery work that saw the Muslims arrive. They bought up the worst and cheapest of the housing, and are now exerting influence at local and state level. They don’t like a lot of what they see around them…..which we call Australia.

On matters medical, it is no longer necessary for doctors to swear a Hipocratic Oath in Australia. I have a good relationship with a Sikh doctor who lives locally. He laments - long and loud - what he sees taking place in Australin medical circles. Erosion of standards, covering of mistakes, stone-walling of complaints, lowering of professional requirements to fill quotas, loss of ethical standards, the influence of drug companies who “buy doctors” - and find so many “for sale”….the list goes on.
Note the name of the current AMA President and the “reforms” that have taken place under his guidance.

Having experienced a lot of present day Australian “medical treatment”, (and having 2 years nursing experience in my youth)I say, often, that I felt safer in Thailand. True, I had money and so was not thrown on the Thai public health system, which would be an appalling fate, but the standard of medicine available to those Thai who can afford to pay leaves Australia in its wake.

We are becomming a Third World country, by design and default.

One small victory - the local practice, which employs my Sikh friend - was forced to withdraw an offer it made to an Afghani Muslim doctor. He was given a fair go, but after a short while, people were demanding “any doctor but him”.

I sense my town, Churchill, may soon find itself in the eye of a “Shepparton” storm. It is home to a very large campus of Monash University, which is set to expand through slated increases to 2 existing faculties and the introduction of an entirely new faculty - medicine. There are increasing numbers of Hijab-clad women and smock-clad men appearing on our streets, and housing (former S.E.C worker-housing) is being snapped up. I am reliably informed we will have three Muslim houses on my street next year. The local council tried to bury an application for a mosque in Morwell, our Municipal seat, 14 kms away, by placing the D/A in the “Tenders” section of the local paper. They want to convert an old factory. The general feeling seems to be a tolerant, “so what, they need a church” but it DID alert people to numbers - if there is a need for a large building, there must be a larger congregation than first thought?

I’ve written before about the hostile Bangladeshi take-over of the local cricket practice nets. These charmers, who have access to Australian Institute of Sport facilities (state of the art and the best in rural Victoria) prefer NOT to play/practice with the kafirs because women play cricket there, in shorts and T-shirts!!!!! So, they intimidate the local kids away from their nets and have the facility to themselves.

There is one gent who does all the talking, and he is so affable and gregarious, so willing to talk about Islam! He is always in the full Muslim rig -a grey, ankle length smock and one of those lace-doily skull caps, not cricket whites. The rest of the “cricketers” slink around in the background, letting him do all the talking. He seems not to play cricket - perhaps his job is to make sure his fellows can, without undue influence from youthful infidels?

Some global views- October 01, 2006

Okay, so I'm a day late.

Here's some opinions and views from elsewhere:

Let's start with "A Letter To Mankind". A must read from the Faith Freedom movement's website. You'll have to find it on the website but it's worth the search.

Then read "When Will The Muslims Apologize?", an article posted by Patriotic Kiwi on the Islam Watch site.

Get some U.N. insight from the post "Kofi Annan. Is There Blood On His Hands?" on the Little Green Footballs weblog.

Followed by the revealing post, "It's a Clash of Civilizations, all right", found on the Jihad Watch weblog.

And finally, wrap your reading up by searching for and reading the September 23, 2005 post, "Moderate Islam: a Reductio ad Absurdum", on the Western Resistance weblog.

Norway's quest for global freedom of speech!

According to News From Norway, Norway will no longer be bullied!

The Norwegian television (VG Nett) Channel 2 will be airing those controversial caricatures of muhammad tomorrow, Monday, October 02, 2006 in a documentary entitled "Threatened to Silence".

While addressing the proposed telecast, journalist Per Christian Magnus, promoter of the documentary suggests the documentary "is a very important act in the fight for freedom of speech."

I have to agree! For what it's worth.

Magnus went on to say "I can personally vouch for the finished product, and I guarantee that only journalistic considerations has been taken into account when considering what's going to be shown and what's not."

Magnus insists the failure to show the cartoons, caricatures would only serve to censor the story behind the Muhammad cartoons- prevent the story from being told, again.

Magnus- "The reason we made Threatened to silence is to illustrate what the conflict was all about."

The Norwegian flag is already being burned by "religion of peace" practitioners.

Imagine that- a documentary discussing islamic intolerance on a global scale.

Bravo! Norway- Bravo! VG Nett!

So, it's not an American fabrication.

Oh, just blowing off some steam.

I need to establish that I’m not a Republican, Democrat, Green(whatever), Libertarian, Communist, Socialist, etc.

I’ve always voted for a PERSON who most accurately represented MY views, MY takes on the world and our fantastic country. I admit, I’m self serving when it comes to politics.

I have to say--- establish up front--- that I did not vote for George Bush when he ran against Gore. Now--- today I’m embarrassed to admit that!

I did vote for George Bush when he was “challenged” by Kerry. Holy crap that was a nightmare. Kerry was so damned condenscending--- he never seemed to remember what he said from one day to the next. He was just trying to appease those who he was speaking to at the time he was talking. Can you imagine where we’d be right now if Kerry was president? We’d be reading the Quran and learning Spanish.

In hindsight I for one appreciate George Bush’s overall plan to invade Afghanistan and subsequently Iraq. At first I was furious. I have a son who was at the time in “harms way” and I was furious that the President of this grand United States was placing him on the front lines--- hell, he was placing him in areas where there were no REAL lines yet, DIRECTLY in harms way--- well before any United States “build up” in Pakistan began that would directly support the preparation for the battles of Afghanistan and Iraq in this war on Islamic terrorism.

So now it’s time to toss out some thoughts that I’ve had for quite awhile regarding this whole discussion of Iraq and the dramatic increase of terrorist activity in Iraq.

I've read and heard angry politicians, newscasters, religious leaders and others claim that the United States has created an islamic extremist battlefield in Iraq, drawing to that country islamic terrorist from all parts of the globe--- terrorists who would not be in Iraq were it not for the battle against terrorism--- which just happens to be focused on Iraq right now.

What’s wrong with that?

What? Do we want these alleged “terrorists” (read cowards) to remain scattered throughout the world for us and our allies to root out--- to kill covertly or not at all?

Doesn’t it make better sense to attract these cowards, draw them to a common place where we can effectively kill them? Kill them on a battlefield of our choosing and their acceptance?

These cowardly bastards were drawn to Iraq with the grand notion of “JI-effing-HAD” like moths to a candle’s flame.

Hell, they played into the hands of the President and his advisors and I love it!

Although the sunni’s, shia’s and others are slaughtering each other daily they still get caught up in the overall “ji-effing-had” bullshit!

This is just the beginning of the end for their cause. They’re struggling big time right now. That dude who supposedly replaced that zarqawi dude is begging for outside help. He's wanting to pull the plug but doesn't quite know how to do it.

We’re kicking butt and they know it!

Well. Thank you 7-11!

Even though you had ulterior motives I still support your move when it comes to CITGO, fat boy Chavez's group. Drop the corporation now- like the hot potato it is. You're better off and I'll buy gas from you again.

Zarqawi's battle plan! Who's friend? Who's foe?

Read it all here. Although that was in 2004.

Things have changed considerably.

Zarqawi is with many of his other pig brethren right about now- and that isn't with those virgins.

40 torture victims found- Islam, the religion of peace!


It seems our Islamic friends have scattered throughout Baghdad 40 of the most recent trophies they've garnered in their sectarian bickering. All bodies of men who bear the marks of torture, their hands and feet bound.

"The bodies of 40 men, more apparent victims of sectarian death squads, have been found dumped in eastern and western Baghdad in the past 24 hours, police said. All showed signs of torture, had been shot, and had their hands and feet bound, police Lt. Thayer Mahmoud said." (The Associated Press 09/28/2006)

All this while Muqtada al Sadr's little militia is crumbling around his ears- the only good news in this whole mess.

But then again, is that really good news?

Who knows.

All I know is that this was one helluva display for the "religion of peace", Islam in Iraq this week. They're killing each other in droves.

Read the watered down version of Al Bawaba's accounting of the incident.

There's far more detailed accounts out there by the AP and others.

Islam, the religion of peace my ass. They're feeding on their own!

Check this out!

The fat, ugly, ignorant prick is stroking the African Union now.

It's great to hear Chavez is bringing more islamic culture into his little fiefdom.

After all, it is the religion of peace! Surely there is nothing to fear from these religious zealots. (point of clarification here- is the big guy's name "muhammed", "mohammed", "mahammed" or some other variation of the name? I mean, every time I read his/her name it's a different variation! Dayum! Settle on one and let us infidels know what you've settled on!)


So, given muhammed's religion of peace- that peace compelled by the sword- given his/her compulsion to ride camels- given his/her raucous behavior you'd have thought that he/her would be a bit more identifiable and all.

Either way, Chavez and the African Union appear to be hooking up with the hopes of whatever. Who knows what Chavez is hoping for!

We certainly know what the mooslims are hoping for.

The bottom line is he has invited the very devil into his house. This is going to be interesting.

Oh yeah, why is it muslim or moslem? Pick a spelling and stay with!

Damn this is distracting!

Chavez!


That little, annoying, fat Venezuelan dude is at it again.

He's the little, fat, ugly guy on the right in this Yahoo image. He's not the shorter, hooked nosed, Iranian dude on the left. Well, actually he's the one on the left in the bigger picture.

Aw hell, let's make it simple. He's the fat, ugly dude in the darker suit. The little ratty looking character we'll get to another day. Right now, he (the little Iranian dude) is a bit busy showing the Russians where he wants his nuke sites built (oh crap. That's supposed to be a secret!).

Yeah. Hugo filed a "diplomatic protest" regarding a circus sideshow performed by his foreign minister Nicolas Maduro and a couple of tagalong's when they were temporarily detained by airport authorities in New York.

It seems the thugs were complaining about airport security measures after they'd drawn attention to themselves as they approached the gate.

The security personnel- as trained, recognized the odd behaviors of these idiots as behaviors that warranted further review. They intervened and attempted to screen the entourage in the appropriate manner- as any other odd acting passengers would be screened within the United States.

You know the rest of the story.

I propose (duh!) these security folks were set up! Chavez wanted to leave his mark with the press as he departed our country. His mark is an ugly one.

But then again, that's only my take on things.

Berlin's Deutsche Oper won't go forward with "Idomeneo".

"Our ideas about openness, tolerance and freedom must be lived on the offensive. Voluntary self-limitation gives those who fight against our values a confirmation in advance that we will not stand behind them," said Mayor Klaus Wowereit.

So, the show won't go on!

At the risk of irking those from the Religion of Peace, ISLAM a slight adaptation of the 225-year-old opera, Idomeneo was pulled from the stage.

It appears the adaptation completed by Hans Neuenfels that first appeared in 2003 included King Idomeneo offering the severed heads of the Greek god of the sea, Poseidon and those of muhammad, Jesus and Buddha much to the chagrin of our Islamic brethren.

German officials, taking into account the stir that the Dutch caricatures of muhammmad caused in September of 2005 strongly suggested the show be cancelled.

Bernd Neumann, the federal government's top cultural official, said that "problems cannot be solved by keeping silent."

"When the concern over possible protests leads to self-censorship, then the democratic culture of free speech becomes endangered."


Read about it HERE and explain to us that we're not a herd of cattle being led to our slaughter.

Islamic intolerance!

I was over on the Infidel Bloggers Alliance this morning giving it a good read. I found the "Killed in a Burka" post chillingly real. The fundamental lesson- speak out against islam and you die. Intolerance- the islamic reaction to adversity. Anger- hate- death- the result of islamic intolerance!

Another good read was found further along in the blog. Here's a couple of powerfully written paragraphs posted to the Infidel Bloggers Alliance by Jai Hind (We need a "Jihad" against intolerance)-

"Muslims must realise that this attitude of “intolerance” – of believing that there is only one truth; only one way to redemption, salvation and glory is fundamentally flawed and completely incompatible with any norms of a civilised and evolved society.We are not living in the Stone Ages and the sooner Muslims realise this, the better.

When will Muslims wake up to this?…and accept that some of the very fundamental tenets of Islam are flawed? accept the need for reform…accept that there will always be people who will not agree with what they believe in – will not agree with their way of thinking and will not agree with their interpretations – but will still need to be accorded respect, given space and treated as being equally worthy in any dialogue.

Is this asking for too much?"


The question is not "is this asking for too much?". That answer's painfully obvious. We are asking for too much of the islamic community to realize certain facts of life- flaws.

The real question was asked by Jai Hind (and many others) and continues to loom like an elephant in the room- When will Muslims begin to tolerate and accept other beliefs?

So far, the answer is "NEVER"!
