DailyKos: Screw the Troops, Too

Master of the fever swamps Markos "screw them"* Moulitsas has finally weighed in on the John Kerry debacle, and Republicans should take heart at his appoach:

So John Kerry mangles a sentence in a public appearance, and the right-wing smear machine and its traditional media enablers are apoplectic. I mean, John Kerry is a, um, junior senator not running for reelection! And he's, um, a war hero who hates the troops! And um, we hate him because he's John Kerry!

Kerry has nothing to apologize for. The people who have turned their backs on the troops do. And even though this ridiculousness will lead the evening news, fact is, we should embrace the opportunity to remind Americans how Republicans rally to the "troops" defense only when it suits their own cynical political ends.That's right. Kerry shouldn't apologize for insulting everyone who proudly wears the uniform of the United States. Why should he? Kerry never apologized for calling US troops in Vietnam murderers and rapists.

If Republicans want to debate who supports the troops more, let's have that debate.
Let's do that, kos, let's talk about how you and your deranged band of BDS sufferers support the troops.

Soldiers are guilty until proven innocent.

Soldiers are child molesters.

Soldiers commit war crimes, using napalm just like Vietnam.

*kos notoriously said of American civilian contractors, murdered, mutilated, hanged, and burned in Iraq: "screw them" (screen capture).

Letters To Kerry

First, a message from the President.

Second, this was sent to me via email by a Sergeant who wishes to remain anonymous.

Good on him.

Today the news has displayed some troubling quotes by you regarding the intelligence of people serving in the armed forces. You further went on to say that you refused to be lectured by stuffed shirt White House mouthpieces or Republicans that had not even served in combat. This is an open challenge to you, sir. I am prepared to debate you on your recent remarks not only as a republican that has served in the armed forces and in combat in Iraq, but as an educated person who volunteered to serve this country in the armed forces knowing that combat was a distinct possibility. The forum can be of your choosing, the topic is of course your stance on the military and how uneducated people are "victims" of nefarious recruiters, the only question left to answer by you, sir, is will you accept this challenge. No doubt you have nothing to fear from a lowly Sergeant without a formal college education who hasn't been molded into a professional politician or participated in any debates with the likes of you. No doubt you will decline this challenge as it will be deemed 'beneath you' to be called on the carpet by a simple commoner such as I. Likely, you will never even see this email as your dutifull staffers will cull this from the thousands of hate mails already pouring into your office and simply shred them. I have dealt with scum before but you sir, disgust me. I await the form letter from your puppet staff and wait with baited breath that you accept my challenge.

Celebrating the end of Eid: A message to idiots

A personal note to naysayers. I just got back from a friend's house. My friend is Muslim. We celebrated the end of Eid--the holiday that comes at the end of Ramadan. We should have celebrated yesterday, but couldn't. In any event, good food was shared by good friends. Spicy good food, I might add, lots of curry. My friend is from Southeast Asia. Is there anything that tastes bad with enough curry on it?

Anyway, just thought I'd remind small minded assholes who belileve that any opposition to Islam must come from some sort of phobia of Muslims. It doesn't. I no more fear Muslims than I feared Communists. I no more hate Muslims than I hated Communists. I fear and hate neither. Yet I still oppose both Islam and Communism.

So to the idiots who call me a bigot, screw you and the horse you rode in on.

PS--if you want to see a real bigot, read some of the comments. That's what a bigot looks like.

Indonesian Government May Stop Protecting Christians from Muslim Terrorists

noviana.0.jpg
An update from Stan the Infidel on the situation in Indonesia. It doesn't look good.

He also reminds us that it was one year ago that a mob of Muslim fanatics attacked some girls on their way to a Christian school and beheaded them. On of the girls, pictured right, barely escaped.

Here is what Stan writes:

The situation is getting more tense in Poso. Islamic militants are protesting against the Mobile Brigade's presence in Poso and clashed with police last week when police went searching for weapons and terrorists. A mob of 300 militants went on the rampage, burning houses and vehicles in protest of the police searches and then attacked the police with molotov cocktails, rocks, explosives and guns. The police responded in self-defense, injuring two and killing one militant.

The militant protesters, led by Adnan Arsal of the Islamic Struggle Brotherhood Forum of Poso (with ties to Jemaah Islamiyah and Al-Qaeda, and with at least one member of Adnan's pesantren involved with the beheadings of the three school girls) and Sugiyanto Kaimudi of the Islamic Defenders Front (paramilitary Indonesian terrorists with ties to Al-Qaeda in Afghanistan, JI, Laskar Jihad, MMI and Abu Bakr Ba'asyir) have threatened to paralyze Poso's markets and businesses, local government and disrupt people's daily lives until Brimob (Mobile Brigade) is removed. These protests and attacks may also be to distract police from looking for Rev. Irianto's killer and the terrorist's weapon caches.

After meetings with Vice-President Yusuf Kalla by the Islamic leaders and Christian leaders, there are signs that the government is going to appease the militants and remove Brimob. This is not what the Christian leaders want as it is Brimob that is protecting Christians from more Islamic attacks. Why the government is even dealing with these militants is suspect in itself. Is the SBY government involved with the restart of the conflict? I believe that the militants have been rebuilding a militia to try to retake all political posts held by Christians in Central Sulawesi. This militia containing members from the two previously mentioned groups also wants to drive the remaining Christians out of the area and finish the conflict which they see as unfinished. Look for local Christian politicians to be assassinated next. After speaking to Muslims in the area and noticing their body language and mannerism when answering questions about recent bombings and violence, I believe the Muslims know who the terrorists are and are keeping quiet, in fear of being branded traitors and killed by the terrorists.

The thing I worry about the most is that Christians are now unarmed as they have handed in all their weapons to the military and the terrorists seem to be re-arming in preparation for war. If the two militant groups are taken out of the equation in Poso then there will be peace for locals. If not, then we will prepare for the conflict to start again.

I have a lot of posts on my site about all these recent happenings. It has also been one year since the three high school girls were beheaded by Islamic militants.

In addition, Stan's brother The Big White Infidel has started a new group blog called Juba Sucks in which our own Howie is also a poster. The blog is a counter to the Juba website which praises a murdering terrorist scumbag and is hosted by a U.S. web company.

British Muslim Cleric Appeals Conviction

AbuHamzaal-Masri.jpgTerrorist orgnizer and Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri is appealing his conviction in the British courts. The one-eyed, hook-handed cleric was found guilty in February on 11 of 15 charges against him, including counts of soliciting murder, stirring racial hatred, possessing a terrorist document and possessing threatening or abusive recordings.

Some of his followers were heard shouting "God Bless You Sheik Hamza" as the cleric was taken away to begin serving his seven year sentence.

Now, the 'Sheikh', says he did not get a fair trial, that 9/11 had prejudiced the case against him, that an orchestrated media 'hate' campaign had tainted the case, and that he really isn't guilty.

Not guilty? Right. This is the man who was stung by a friend of ours, Glen Jenvey. Glen posed to Abu Hamza as a radical Muslim interested in recruiting for the jihad in Afghanistan. You know, a country in which the U.K. was actively fighting. I think that's called treason in most circles.

Hamza passed a number of materials to Glen in support of the jihad. Glen told Hamza the materials--such as videos of his speeches at the Finsbury Park mosque--would be used to recruit jihadis.

One of those videos sent to Glen by Hamza showed James Ujaama, who was later convicted of trying to organize a terror training camp in Oregon, sitting next to the Shiekh at the Finsburry mosque. Glen also tells me that Ujaama was found through the FBI following an IP track left at a false website set up by Glen in support of radical Islam.

So, not freakin guilty? Not a fair trial? Media hate campaign? Right Shiekh. It's the British media that is up to a 'hate campaign'. Abu Hamza openly preached to his followers that if British law failed to criminally prosecute homosexuals--as is required by Islamic law--then it was up to private Muslim citizens to punish gays.

In fact, the British authorities banned the public from knowing what Hamza actually said to his Finsburry Mosque followers. Another friend of ours, Neil Doyle, had his book banned in the U.K. during the Hamza trial because it contained quotes which might 'prejudice' the jury against the cleric.

Those quotes show Hamza praising Adolf Hitler for doing Allah's work in exterminating the Jews. Yeah, no hate there.

BBC News:

Radical preacher Abu Hamza al-Masri was found guilty because a fair trial was "impossible", a court has heard.

His lawyers told the Appeal Court his trial was prejudiced by "unique" global events and a media hate-campaign....

Edward Fitzgerald QC, representing 48-year-old Abu Hamza, told the Court of Appeal it had been "unfair and oppressive" to launch a prosecution in 2004 over speeches made between 1997 and 2000.

Police had taken no action at the time, even though officers had taken away the recordings for analysis.

The prosecution came amid a "relentless campaign of adverse media publicity condemning him as a preacher of hate and inciter of violence", said Mr Fitzgerald, some of it driven by the public battle led by the Home Secretary to strip Abu Hamza of his citizenship.

This campaign, argued Mr Fitzgerald, combined with the unique events of the 9/11 attacks and subsequent 7 July 2005 London bombings had prejudiced the trial.

"Inadmissible evidence relating to his alleged involvement in actual crimes of terrorism was relentlessly highlighted and referred to in public," said Mr Fitzgerald.

"Because of the delay in prosecuting the appellant, the atmosphere had been poisoned against him in a way that would not have happened had he been subjected to a timely prosecution."

Oh, and Hamza continues to fight extradition to the U.S. on terror related charges.

John Kerry Insults Soldiers, MSM Covers Up (Updated)

Update: Video

Update II: Kerry responds:

Washington – Senator John Kerry issued the following statement in response to White House Press Secretary Tony Snow, assorted right wing nut-jobs, and right wing talk show hosts desperately distorting Kerry’s comments about President Bush to divert attention from their disastrous record:

“If anyone thinks a veteran would criticize the more than 140,000 heroes serving in Iraq and not the president who got us stuck there, they're crazy. This is the classic G.O.P. playbook. I’m sick and tired of these despicable Republican attacks that always seem to come from those who never can be found to serve in war, but love to attack those who did.

There's more in this vein, i.e., blaming Republicans for interpreting Kerry's words as if they were spoken in plain English. Oh, wait, they were. Watch the video.

No wonder this idiot lost in 2004.

2004 Presidential loser John Kerry spoke to students Monday at a rally for California gubernatorial candidate Phil Angelides at Pasadena City College. Kerry delivered an intolerable insult to the brave Americans protecting us in the War on Terror. You didn't hear about it on the Nightly News.

From The Conservative Voice, here's what Kerry had to say:

“You know education, if you make the most of it, you study hard, you do your homework, and you make an effort to be smart, you can do well. And if you don’t you get stuck in Iraq.”
As NewsBusters points out, the mainstream media, in full Democratic campaign mode for next week's midterm elections, have failed to report this outrageous and revealing Kerry gaffe.

CBS Tries to Make Republicans Look like Islamaphobes

CBS is looking for a few good Republicans to make them look bad. From Craig's List in New York:

Do you get nervous when you see a Muslim on an airplane? Have your opinions about Muslims changed since September 11? Do you have family or friends that get nervous around Muslims?

A NEW CBS SHOW SEEKS New York families who have traditional family values but are uneasy around Muslims.

Emphasis mine.

Nervous around Muslims on a plane? I mean, why would any sane person have anything to fear from Muslims......on a plane?

Not looking for those with untraditional family values. See, they are not looking for homosexuals who might get nervous around Muslims, even though committed Muslims might be in favor of the death penalty--as proscribed in the Quran--for gays. Heather's two mommies need not apply. They are looking for families that have traditional family values.

The fact that they have to advertise to find people with traditional family values also suggests that the CBS producers don't know many people who fit the bill. You know, Republicans. And not the Bloomberg kind.

Netanyahu Interview: This is War with Iran

Listen to former Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu on the Bill Maher show. As he explains, Isreal's war with Hezbollah is really a war with Iran. A war, in fact, between the U.S. and Iran as well.

Pay attention to how militant Islam is both like and unlike Soviet Communism. Like in their ideological zealotry, unlike in that they put their fundamentalism before their sense of national survival. Scary.

If We Leave Iraq

What then will happen to those who support the new government and secular democracy? Christopher Hitchens asks via Slate

Many of those advocating withdrawal have been "war-weary" ever since the midafternoon of Sept. 11, 2001, when it was discovered that the source of jihadist violence was U.S. foreign policy—a mentality now reinforced by the recent National Intelligence Estimate circulated by our emasculated, demoralized, and incompetent intelligence services. To this way of thinking, victory is impossible by definition, because any response other than restraint is bound to inflame the militancy of the other side. Since the jihadists, by every available account, are also inflamed and encouraged by everything from passivity to Danish cartoons, this seems to shrink the arena of possible or even thinkable combat. (Nobody ever asks what would happen if the jihadists had to start worrying about the level of casualties they were enduring, or the credit they were losing by their tactics, or the number of enemies they were making among civilized people who were prepared to take up arms to stop them. Our own masochism makes this contingency an unlikely one in any case.)….

…..What is to become, in the event of a withdrawal, of the many Arab and Kurdish Iraqis who do want to live in a secular and democratic and federal country?

Sorry Chris but that’s an easy one. Using Mullah Filthy’s term, they will get the old chop, chop, choppity chop.

I heisted this off of Military.com (hey, they had a download link, so it's not really theft), it's purportedly of a jihadi who was more concerned with firing at the mote in his neighbor's eye while ignoring the M1 Abrams beam in his own.

Whatever the story behind it, it's obviously a terrorist getting blown up. And we likey.

Cross-Dressing Terrorist, Nine Others Captured

CENTCOM reports the capture of ten terrorists, and the death of one who fired on troops. The target of the raid was a tranny:

BAGHDAD, Iraq – Coalition Forces killed a terrorist Saturday morning and detained an individual responsible for the movement of foreign fighters into Iraq during a raid south of Baghdad.

Saturday’s raid was part of an ongoing effort to diminish al-Qaeda in Iraq car bombing capabilities in the Baghdad area. During October, Coalition Forces detained eight other key players and 15 known associates.

During the raid, eight insurgents attempted to flee the area and ground forces were able to safely detain them. Forces detained two others without incident. The targeted terrorist was disguised as a woman in an attempt to avoid being detained.

As the Coalition Forces were preparing to depart with the detainees, they received small arms fire from a terrorist and ground forces returned fire, killing the terrorist.

Bin Laden Dead? Some More Evidence

Is Osama bin Laden Dead? A recent story by the Globe and Mail suggests just that. Considering today's news that Ayman al Zawahiri might also be dead, I'd say things are looking up. Or at the very least, hope springs something something. Anyway, we can dream, can't we?

As long-time readers know, I've believed for some time now that bin Laden is somewhere in Africa, if still alive. Specifically, the Horn of Africa.

Why Africa? One little appreciated aspect of bin Laden is that he actually believes his own press. By all accounts, there is more than a bit of Sufi mysticism surrounding bin Laden. In fact, many believe the Shiekh has supernatural foretelling powers. No Muslim would not dare call him a prophet, but something like that is how he is viewed.

And it was in Africa where bin Laden first foretold the destruction of the American empire. And it was in Mogadishu that bin Laden first saw his 'prophecies' come to pass. So, why not go back to the source of his original inspiration?

Conjecture, I know. But it makes sense. More sense than Pakistan, in my mind. That is, if he's still alive.

The Globe and Mail via The Moderate Voice:

Sporting his thick, greying beard, a black turban and metal-rimmed glasses, it was the seventh video that Ayman al-Zawahiri, al-Qaeda founder and right-hand jihadist to Osama bin Laden, has recorded since June, a period during which Mr. bin Laden has made no public statements at all.

That, experts and acquaintances say, likely means something's gone awry inside al-Qaeda. Some speculate the world's second-most wanted man, a pioneer in the use of suicide bombings and martyr videos, has become the group's new No. 1.

The rest of the story is devoted to how Zawahiri hates being in the spotlight, the opposite of Osama bin Laden, and how the dearth of bin Laden and the abundance of Zawahiri videos suggest Ayman is now the man in al Qaeda---hinting that bin Laden is six feet under.

Being out of the spotlight for several years must be worse for Osama bin Laden than if the Hollywood press ignored Paris Hilton. He is a media whore of epic proportions. So, either a) he is too scared to come out of hiding b) he is hiding somewhere where media access is very limited indeed, or c) he is dead.

C has been reported scores of times, most recently in September when bin Laden was said to have died from a 'water born illness'.

A is possible, and would be grand irony indeed. But B would likely rule out Pakistan or Afghanistan given that Zawahiri is said to be somewhere along the border. If both are in the same region, then there is little explanation for why the dearth of information coming from bin Laden.

In any event, it seems that Zawahiri is the man now. If Zawahiri is not dead, that is.

Zawahiri Dead? Al Qaeda Leader Target of Bombing

zawahiri_dead.jpgAyman al Zawahiri was the target of an attack on a madrassa--an Islamic religious school--on Sunday near the town of Chingai. The attack is now said to have been carried out by an armed U.S. Predator drone. The attack killed at least 80 people.

There is no clear indication whether of not al Qaeda's leading spokesperson was killed. We all pray, though, that Zawahiri has met his maker.

Earlier reports coming from Pakistan indicated that the target was Faqir Mohammed--a local al Qaeda leader. The area was the scene of a massive pro-Taliban rally the day before. The Pakistanis also took credit for the bombings, but now The Blotter is reporting that it was the U.S. that carried out the attack.

The Blotter:

Ayman al Zawahiri was the target of a Predator missile attack this morning on a religious school in Pakistan, according to Pakistani intelligence sources.

ABC News has learned the raid was launched after U.S. intelligence received tips and examined Predator reconnaissance indicating that al Qaeda's No. 2 man may have been staying at the school, which is located in the Bajaur region near the village that is thought to be al Qaeda's winter headquarters.

Earlier story about the madrassa attack here.

If Zawahiri is dead (knock on wood) Allahpundit thinks this would be a great campaign issue. Either way, the Left will begin questioning the timing.

Bill Roggio has some important notes as to why Pakistan taking credit for the attack, when it seems the U.S. was responsible, matters. It does.

Jawa Flashback:
Zawahiri Dead

The last time rumors began circulating that Zawahiri was dead, al Jazeere claimed Zawahir was the "victim" of a U.S. attack. That's right, Ayman al Zawahiri the victim.

Today's headlines follow a similar pattern, with many news outlets playing up the innocents killed and the angry Muslims angle.

UPDATE: Apparently NBC had a reporter named Mushtaq Yusufzai on the scene. This reporter has enough street cred that he landed an interview with the local al Qaeda leader, Faqir Mohammed, who was alleged to be the initial target of the raid. Faqir Mohammed survived, and has vowed.....wait for it....jihad in response to the attack.

Yusufzai heard helicopters...which means that in all likelihood the Pakistanis had some part in it.

No mention of Zawahiri in the article.

The "commander,(terrorist commander of the sniper known as Juba)" however, says the Islamic Army now has "a fair amount of snipers" with the steady hand and eagle eye required for the task. "The idea of filming the operations is very important because the scene that shows the falling soldier when hit has more impact on the enemy than any other weapon," says the "commander," whose face is obscured.

Pakistan Takes Out Madrassa

UPDATE!!!! Zawahiri dead????
----------------

No link between Islam and violence alert. The Pakistanis attacked a madrassa, or religious school. Good on you Pakistan. In the country that has recently rejected calls to do away with the death penalty for women rape victims, it is at least heartening to see them still fighting al Qaeda. When it is in their interests to do so, that is.

AP:

Pakistani troops backed by missile-firing helicopters destroyed an al-Qaida-linked training facility in a northwestern tribal area near the Afghan border Monday, killing "many" militants, officials said.

The pre-dawn attack targeted a religious school - known as a madrassa - holding 70-80 militants in Chingai village near the town of Khar, the main town in the Bajur tribal district, said army spokesman Maj. Gen. Shaukat Sultan.

Sultan said the facility was destroyed but that it was not immediately clear how many people had been killed. There were no civilian casualties as there were no other buildings near the madrassa, he claimed.

The attack came two days after 5,000 pro-Taliban tribesmen held an anti-American rally in the Bajur area near Damadola, a village close to the site of an alleged U.S. missile attack that killed several al-Qaida members and civilians in January.

"We received confirmed intelligence reports that 70-80 militants were hiding in a madrassa used as a terrorist-training facility, which was destroyed by an army strike, led by helicopters," Sultan said....

A senior intelligence official in Bajur also said a local al-Qaida leader, Faqir Mohammed, who led Saturday's rally was believed to have been inside the madrassa that was targeted.

HT: J Summers.

Michael e-mails a follows up with a confirmation that at least 80 were killed inside the Madrassa.

We've covered the fact that French TV is suing a number of people over the simple act of questioning whether the publicly owned broadcast station might be complicit in spreading Palestinian lies and propaganda.

Cubans Eager for Liberty as Castro Slowly Dies

Our friend Stefania reports that Cubans are eagerly awaiting the day Castro dies. Not surprisingly, the mainstream press ignores it.

Me? I've got $100 on Fidel dying before the end of 2007.

Townhall:

The "Yo No Coopero, Yo Si Quiero el Cambio" campaign is being endorsed by the overwhelming majority of the opposition organizations, both in Cuba and in the exile. It is an unprecedented initiative that, right now that Castro is dying in his hospital bed, may well be the right steps toward the liberation of Cuba.

No one should be surprised by the mainstream media blackout on these events. What surprises the most is the silence of the democratic world, with the United States and Europe on the forefront. For once, they should stop focusing on who is in power in Cuba in place of the ailing Fidel.

Nigerian Plane Crash Kills Muslim Leader

(Abuja, Nigeria) Yesterday, a commercial Aviation Development Co. (ADC) plane crashed right after takeoff from Abuja airport, killing 99 people onboard. Seven people survived.

The Boeing 737 plowed into a farm about one mile from the runway. Reportedly, the weather was stormy, however, one official stated that he visited the crash site and described the condition of the plane as deplorable and it had bald tires.

Importantly, among those who died was the Sultan of Sokoto, Ibrahim Muhammadu, also called Alhaji Muhammadu Maccido. The sultan was the traditional ruler of Northern Nigeria and the Muslim spiritual leader for Nigeria's 70 million followers of the religion of peace. The Governor of Sokoto declared six days of mourning for the sultan whose son also died in the crash.

The cause of the crash is unknown and under investigation. Notably, it appears that airplanes over Nigeria have a significant propensity for falling out of the sky. Yesterday's was the third crash in the last year for a nation which is about twice the size of California.

Radio Host: Incumbents 'May Have to be Assassinated'

In a lengthy rant, anti-semitic radio host Hal Turner (pic) believes that 1.350 "patriot assassins" would be a large enough force to overwhelm Secret Service agents and Capitol Police and deal with the "problems" posed by half the US House and Senate and "at least three problems" on the Supreme Court:

As the November 7 Election approaches, I decided to write a few lines to my fellow Americans about the state of our nation and the ugliness that may have to occur if the people who caused these problems are re-elected: They may have to be assassinated.
Among the crimes for which Turner believes these folks "may" have to die are passage of the Patriot Act and ruling that boating, hunting and fishing in navigable waterways is illegal.

In the comments on his website, Turner writes that his careful choice of words gives him legal cover:

hey hal instead of saying "may" SAY you WILL KILL THEM!!! grow some balls!

------------------- Hal Turner responds:

No no no no no. Words mean things. The difference between "may" and "will" is the difference between an opinion and a threat.

One is lawful, the other is not.

It's not a matter of balls, it's a matter of brains!

No word yet on whether the FBI agrees.

Interestingly, while Turner's radio show and website are popular with Nazi and White Power types, most of Turner's views are shared by Democrats.

Al Qaeda Threatens Canada

Al Qaeda has warned Canada to withdraw troops from Afghanistan or it will be a targetted for terrorist attacks. They also call Canada "second rate crusaders". Are you Canadians just going to sit their and let yourselves be called second-rate anything?

The message from al Qaeda has been consistent: any retreat by Western forces is interpretted as victory---spawning new attacks elsewhere. This is global jihad.

National Post:

An al-Qaeda strategist has warned Canada to withdraw its troops from Afghanistan or face terrorist attacks similar to 9/11, Madrid and the London transit bombings.

The threat, attributed to a member of the al-Qaeda information and strategy committee, condemns Prime Minister Stephen Harper for refusing to pull out of Afghanistan....

It is the second reference in recent weeks to al-Qaeda singling out Canada because of its role in Afghanistan.

Last month, Osama bin Laden's deputy, Ayman Al-Zawahiri, referred to Canadian troops in Kandahar as "second-rate Crusaders."

Most Misleading Headline of the Day Award

And the winner is, the Associated Press, for this story, headlined, "Webb: Democrats will provide Iraq remedy."

While the Democratic candidate for Senator from Virginia may know a lot about the oral stimulation of toddlers' penises, he offers nothing but Sound and Fury concerning the Iraqi theater of the Global War on Terror. The "remedy" promised in the AP headline is not forthcoming anywhere in the story.

Webb gets points for honesty, however, by admitting that the Democrats have no plan for further progress in Iraq:

"A Democratic Congress will demand from day one that the president find a real way forward in Iraq. We'll work with the administration and other Republicans to develop a concrete plan, but none of us are ready to settle for empty rhetoric, or the same old unacceptable results," Webb said.
With the mention of "empty rhetoric" Webb qualifies for his own award, "Most Blatant Unconscious Irony in a Public Statement."

Charlie Brown Goes on Jihad

By Ragnar Danneskjold, Typical Bitter Gun-Clinger at 11:43 PM | Comments |

IAI Hostage Video.

I just wanted to show the contrast between the sanitized Juba film from the Islamic Army in Iraq and the some of the groups other work. The Jawa Report has obtained a copy of one of their other videos released for Jihadi sweeps week.

It’s a kind of, "The Best of our Murderous Rage" type thingy. There are many hostages in the Video. I’ve taken frames from the first half of the video showing four of the hostages and their fate. I located a rough translation of the Arabic for all the hostages in the video.

Note they claim one of the drivers for Chalabi died of his injuries. Well no, the guy was murdered. See the similarity. Murdered vs Just Died. You don’t? He died of his injuries, specifically the one caused when they released the attachment of his head to his body. See how this works? Remember lying to kufar and apostates is allowed in Islam. Just like lying to your dog.

BBC: Now he asked you to imagine this and you said if you kill us you won't get anything out of this. But I think quite soon after that you had experience of their capability of killing with the beheading of the guard of Chalabi. Tell us about that.

Yes. The week after they brought some one guy, they told us he you he was the bodyguard of Chalabi his convoy has been attacked on his way to...to Najaf, we killed a few people around him but he was injured etcetera and so immediately we knew that they would kill him because bodyguard of Chalabi...

And the guy was he was he wasn't able to talk to us, he was not allowed to talk to us and we are not allowed to talk to him, they were treating him said you are a dog, you are a you are working with Chalabi bad guy, Chalabi sold to the Americans etcetera.

He was tall with short hair, well dressed, but his face was livid and...and then they claim that they attack the convoy but Chalabi denied that, they told us okay we will show Chalabi that it's...so they made a cassette of this guy and they broadcast the cassette on...and Chalabi had said no it's not my it's not my bodyguard...the guy was killed after.

The tape is hosted by two terrorists in black masks. I have a copy of the first half or so below the fold along with some frame grabs. Remember this is the same group that produced the sniper videos that CNN ran. They are murdering terrorists and nothing more. They deserve no mercy or respect from us.

Note that so far as I can tell every hostage murdered in this video was Muslim. Every single one.

We aquire our videos be sneaking them off of terrorist message boards. No negotiation required. We bring you these so you can see for yourselves the evil that the MSM calls "freedom fighters". This is the video created for Iraqi audiences.

Hat Tip: MP.

Warning: Graphic Images below the fold.

Update: Corrected XLT for this Video and google link below the fold.

This one in particular was mainly about traitors and hyppocrites:

TITLE: The Scimitar, for slicing the arteries of the infidels.

They warn people not to help the americans in any way. And they speak about the most frequently used routes by the truckers driving supplies to US bases (when pointing to the maps). The also show in the map, the shiite areas and say that it is not as easy to operate there against the truckers since the shiites are more towards the americans and they tend to protect the truckers. They also say that the western desert regions are the anbar area and they were easier for the mujahideen to capture and control. They said that they protect "law abiding" muslim traders travelling across the borders there and show them the fastest routes to their destinations. Minimal US forces or National Guard go to the anbar province since it's far from supplies etc...

u also seem to be researching hostages...so here's an overview:

The first few hostages in order:

*a senior intelligence and iterrogation officer working for the interior ministry

*Second guy was working for the national guard.

*third was in the iraqi army and stationed in fallujah.

*fourth (after the text), was a national guard, also mehdi army.

*fifth , also national guard, also mehdi army.

================================================== ===================================

-second scene of hostages(all truckers):

*first two are truckers for a company "saffan".

*The next two(seated beside each other) were also truckers. for their company they wrote "private iraqi firm"

*Next guy shown in front of the black banner; also trucker company: "seven seas".

*Next guy also shown in front of the black banner; also trucker company: also "seven seas".

*Next hostage also trucker working for a company, "Shaheen".

*Next guy(balding guy) is also the same.

*Next hostage is also the same.

*Next dude also a trucker, "private iraqi firm".

*Next guy is also the same, "private iraqi firm".

*Next guy also trucker, "private iraqi firm".

*Blindfolded hostage "private iraqi firm".

*Next Blindfolded hostage "private iraqi firm".

*Next Blindfolded hostage "transooshnk ". .

*next guy (turkish national) holding pics, trucker, "private turkish firm".

*next few guys(darker skinned, sudanese nationals) driving goods for a "private jordanian firm" to us bases.

*blindfolded guy. Trucker.company "Fatak"..

*next, also blindfolded guy. Trucker.company "Fatak"..

*Next guy (from his arabic dialect, he seems sudanese). Trucker. company "VWC".

*Next (Big moustache). Company "Iftaan company for leased transporting under the contract of KBR, an american company".

*Next guy is the same. Company "Iftaan company for leased transporting under the contract of KBR, an american company".

*Next blindfolded dude; company "Edna Express". .

*Final three: company "Firdaan". .

-Most if not all of the truckers said they regretted their actions and warned and adviced their comrades and countrymen not to work with US forces.

In their final scene the mujahideen say That their Main targets are the Occupying forces and the non-islamic government and anyone who tries to pave the way for their success...

Final text:

And dont forget us in you prayers.

Copy of Video uploaded to Google here.

Here is the XLT of the olther very similar video in which they claim to have released a driver who is known to have been murdered by beheading. Both are very similar. I'll see about getting some images and a copy of that one.

Media wing

Jema'at Ansaar Al-sunnah

The first hostage shown is a philippino, the subtitle says: released after the withdrawal of Philippino troops from iraq

The second hostage seems to be an Iraqi the subtitle states that he was released after he repented.

name:Haider Munthir Ma'roof abdul majeed al-zuhairy birth date:1974
occupation: driver company: Jubeil Ikhwan started working for the company:15/09/2002
he continues on to say... "i was captured by the Islamic Army and am now under interrogation and sentencing".

Third hostage also an Iraqi, the subtitle also states that he was released after he repented.

inaudible

Next hostage... Subtitle states that he was a spy and was 'finished off'.
He said that they were attacked by an ied before capture and that the ied split the heads of the guys who were with him, a guard and a soldier, I think. He then says he's thirsty and is given a drink.

Next hostage... Iranian... subtitle states he was released...He spoke in Iranian...

Next two hostages...Subtitle states that they were Macedonian spies and were 'finished off'...

Then comes the Italian guy... who is also 'finished off' according to the subtitle...

The first speaks in French...

The second speaks excellent Arabic but with a french accent...

"Hello all, we are french journalists, I'm Christan Shinow and am with my colleague George. We are now with the brothers of the Islamic army of Iraq and until now there is no problem, we are being interrogated. We are being treated well and there is no force used. We eat three meals a day and there is tea. Till now there are no complications, we thank the Islamic army for their hospitality, Its not a five star hotel but we are happy. We understand their predicament and why they are doing this. They are resisters of an occupying force, there are spies everywhere and they are just taking precautions and we understand that and our situation will be solved soon, god willing".

The final hostage... subtitle states that he's the driver of the journalists... 'pending investigation'

Name: Mohammed Amin Al-Jundi, "I was captured three days ago, I was driving two french journalists to karbala after which we were supposed to go to najaf... Treatment is good here and i will surely be released and go back to my children and friends"

A picture of his son is then shown with the subtitle stating that he is "WANTED"...

Arizona '9/11 Memorial' Protest Tomorrow

Curt from Flopping Aces wants to remind everyone about the rally tomorrow to protest the Arizona Fortress of Dhimmitude.

The so-called memorial is an example of ultra leftwing moral relativism at its most disgraceful, and is really a deliberate slap in the face to the victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

So What's the Plan, Man?

Boston Herald columnist Michael Graham is all set to vote a straight Democratic ticket on November 7th if the DNC can answer one easy question:

But I think I must have missed a meeting or accidentally deleted an e-mail from Moveon.org, because I still haven’t seen the Democratic plan to fix Iraq and kick terrorist butt. Could someone please point me to the page of Time magazine’s recent “Barack For President” issue with the Democrats’ “How we defeat the woman-beating, homosexual-executing, book-burning, anti-Semitic, knuckle-dragging Islamists who want to kill us” bullet points? Thanks.

Wazzat? You can’t? Comrade, what do you mean there isn’t a Democratic strategy for terrorism? There’s gotta be. I mean - seriously - what kind of political party has no war plan at a time when we’re actively at war? When 135,000 troops are in the field, and where six weeks ago we foiled a plot to blow 10 American aircraft out of the sky?

Hello?

This is the part that the Democrats' cheerleaders in the mainstream press are soft-peddling in their glowing comparisons of the current political landscape to that of the early nineties. In 1994, when Republicans stormed Congress, Newt Gingrich and the party leaders had the famous "Contract With America," detailing, among other things, what they hoped to accomplish in the first hundred days of a Republican majority.

How does the Democratic Party plan to lead if the voters grant them majorities in the House and Senate?
Graham has a clue:

After all, the Democrats’ position on stopping terror can’t be to abandon democracy in Iraq, stop wiretapping, end coercive interrogation and reveal our secret tracking of terror money abroad in The New York Times. That’s crazy.
Yes, it is.

Graham's column is in sync with Jim Geraghty, one of the few people who called the 2004 Presidential election correctly, who also believes that the "security" vote is much more important than MSM analysts are letting on.

George Allen Campaign Details Opponent's 'Disturbing' Writings

Senator George Allen (R-VA) has issued a press release detailing that fiction written by his Democratic opponent James Webb contains graphic misogynistic and incestuous pedophiliac passages.

From the Drudge Report:

– Lost Soldiers: “A shirtless man walked toward them along a mud pathway. His muscles were young and hard, but his face was devastated with wrinkles. His eyes were so red that they appeared to be burned by fire. A naked boy ran happily toward him from a little plot of dirt. The man grabbed his young son in his arms, turned him upside down, and put the boy’s penis in his mouth.”

– Something to Die For: "Fogarty . . . watch[ed] a naked young stripper do the splits over a banana. She stood back up, her face smiling proudly and her round breasts glistening from a spotlight in the dim bar, and left the banana on the bar, cut in four equal sections by the muscles of her vagina."

Via Jay at Stop the ACLU, who points out that Right Wing News had the story first, posting similar passages on September 29th.

Because You Asked For It (Updated)

Update: DhimmiTube has yanked the video, apparently because it offends the delicate sensibilities of the YTers to see terrorists actually paying for their crimes.

This Hamas propaganda video has been on YouTube for a month. As Hamas is a recognized Foreign Terrorist Organization, YouTube may actually be in violation of US law for allowing it to remain.

I've uploaded my video (about 32 megs) to FILESEND. It can be downloaded at this URL: http://www.filesend.net/download.php?f=7c22a86e4da62c6191daf0405ad7687d - downloading the video is free, and you are welcome to do so.

The name of the file is nightmare_001. I am definitely not suggesting that those of you with YouTube accounts download the file, and add an extra credit screen to the beginning or the end to disguise the nature of the video, and then upload the video to YouTube. Oh no, I would never suggest anything like that.


Well, at least a couple of you did in the "It's a Bird, It's a Plane" post comments. So, here are more Islamist terrorists getting their reward at the hands of American troops. God rot their vile souls.

Not A Bad Idea Actually

Blah blah blah blah then..

Ralph Peters at the NY Post: For now, Maliki and his pals are using our troops to buy time while they pocket our money, amass power and build up arms. But they've written us off for the long term.

Does that mean we should leave?

Not yet. Iraq deserves one last chance. But to make that chance even remotely viable, we'll have to take desperate measures. We need to fight. And accept the consequences.

The first thing we need to do is to kill Muqtada al-Sadr, who's now a greater threat to our strategic goals than Osama bin Laden.

We should've killed him in 2003, when he first embarked upon his murder campaign. But our leaders were afraid of provoking riots.

Back then, the tumult might've lasted a week. Now we'll face a serious uprising. So be it. When you put off paying war's price, you pay compound interest in blood.

We must kill - not capture - Muqtada, then kill every gunman who comes out in the streets to avenge him.

Exactly correct, but I didn’t know Improbulus Maximus worked at the NY Post. It is Improbable to the max that we will. Because we didn’t the first time, when we should have.

Nasty Teacher Gets Prison

The case of Schmeca White departs from the customary sentence of a hand slap for female sexual offenders.

(South Bend, Indiana) In May 2005, former aide at Greene Intermediate Center, Schmeca White (pic) was arrested on felony charges of inappropriate sexual activities with special education students between the ages of 11 and 15. Specific charges included two counts each of child molestation and sexual misconduct with a minor, along with sexual battery, criminal deviate conduct, and battery.

Earlier this month, White was convicted of sexual misconduct with a minor, vicarious sexual gratification and battery, forcing students into simulated sex and choking a student. Jurors had to listen to descriptions of White's disgusting classroom behavior which included one reported incident that she stripped naked.

Yesterday, Schmeca White, now 28, was sentenced. She received nine and one-half years in prison to be followed by four years probation. She was also ordered to register as a sex offender. According to Judge Roland W. Chamblee Jr., White's lack of a criminal record prevented him from handing out the maximum sentence.

White spoke at her sentencing and maintained that she is innocent.

"I still say that I'm innocent, regardless of what victims said I did," White said. " ... I did nothing to those children and I still say that."
Unfortunately for White, the evidence convinced the jury of her guilt. Now she gets to join a number of other criminals, also claiming innocence, in an Indiana state prison.

Interestingly, there's already been discussion of White being released early for good behavior but this is inconsistent with current experience. Behind bars since her arrest last year, White has been a problem prisoner.

There are signs that the same type of classroom behavior that first put Schmeca White behind bars nearly 547-days ago, has continued, after her arrest, leading to at least three jail transfers.

"From her flat file paperwork, she's been aggressive with the, sexually, excuse me, sexually aggressive with the female inmates, and was moved to the medical unit, and she became sexually aggressive with male and female inmates at that point," said anonymously.

I suspect White may have difficulty supporting the contention that she is a model prisoner.

Iran, Hezbollah Charged for Argentine Bombings

(Buenos Aires, Argentina) Argentina has made an international call for action against former leaders of the government of Iran and the leadership of Hezbollah. It's about time.

Iran is accused of organizing attacks against the Argentine Jewish Mutual Association (AMIA) charities group and the Israeli Embassy which claimed more than 100 lives and wounded hundreds more. Hezbollah is accused of carrying out the attacks.

The Argentine prosecutor demanded international arrest warrants for:

- Ayatollah Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, former Iranian President,

- Hojatoleslam Ali Fallahian, former Iranian Minister of Intelligence and Security,

- Ali Akbar Velayati, former Iranian Foreign Minister,

- Major General Mohsen Rezai, ex-Supreme Commander, Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC),

- Major General Ahmad Vahidi, former Commander of the IRGC Qods Force,

- Mohsen Rabbani, former cultural attache at the Iranian embassy in Buenos Aires,

- Ahmad Reza Asgari, AKA Mohsen Ranjbaran, former Iranian embassy official in Buenos Aires,

- Imad Fayez Mugniyeh, AKA Imad Fayez Moughnieh, headed the Shiite Lebanese Hezbollah overseas operation.

According to Argentine chief prosecutor Alberto Nisman, "We have proven that the decision to attack the AMIA headquarters on July 18, 1994 ... was a decision made by the highest authorities in Iran's government at the time." A 21-year-old Hezbollah bomber, Ibrahim Hussein Berro, a Lebanese citizen, was positively identified as the man who drove the explosives-packed van to the Jewish center on July 18, 1994.

The 300,000-strong Argentine Jewish community has been loudly demanding justice for over a decade for the 1992 embassy bombing and the 1994 Jewish center bombing. All along, the investigations of the terrorist acts were allegedly marred by corrupt police and government officials. In particular, former Argentine leader Carlos Saul Menem was allegedly funneled $10 million in a Swiss bank account by Iranian intelligence to cease the investigations into the attacks.

Response from Iran via IHT.com:

Iranian state TV news said Thursday that Argentine prosecutors had "repeated their baseless accusations" of Iran's "meddling" in the 1994 explosion, but the newscaster did not say that Rafsanjani or any other Iranian official had been named.
Iranian TV did not cover the Argentine chief prosecutor's remarks and no Iranian newspapers were published today due to an Islamic feast.

Islamic Values Or American Values Debate In Minneapolis-St. Paul

I hadn't heard of this before but it seems that a debate is raging in Minneapolis-St. Paul between Somali taxi drivers over whether or not to pick up a passenger that has alcohol. Some drivers will pick up the patron whereas others will not. Behind the controversy is a fatwa issued by the Muslim American Society, Minnesota chapter:

Star Tribune—The taxi controversy at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport has caught the nation's attention. But the dispute may go deeper than the quandary over whether to accommodate Somali Muslim cabdrivers who refuse to carry passengers carrying alcohol. Behind the scenes, a struggle for power and religious authority is apparently playing out. ...

Terror Rehearsal on Oslo-Prague Flight

I fear these incidents occur much more frequently than reported. Part of the problem is that the rehearsals seldom actually reach the threshold of being criminal so the perpetrators are let go.

From Aftenposten:

Czech security police (BIS) have reported an attempt to storm the cockpit of a flight from Oslo to Prague.

The BIS annual report for 2005, released on Tuesday, mentions flight OK 447 in September 2005, where three Egyptian citizens tried to gain access to the pilots.

According to BIS spokesman Jan Subrt, police terrorism experts believe that the three Egyptians were not trying to hijack the plan but rather testing the security measures on board the plan, which was owned by Czech Airlines (CSA).

"The crew on board discovered the three Egyptians trying to open the door into the cockpit. When the stewards intervened they immediately gave up their attempts and gave the excuse that they were looking for a staff member because they wanted to buy chewing gum," Subrt said. [sic all]

Sure, I also travel with two buddies when I look for chewing gum ... Sheesh! These guys couldn't even come up with a plausible excuse. Nevertheless, more ominous is this paragraph.
This is the second time in recent weeks that Norway is linked to terrorism in the Czech Republic. In the end of September Czech authorities significantly increased security measures around Prague's Jewish memorials after receiving a tip from Norway, a few days after Norway's Police Security Service (PST) revealed alleged terrorist plans against the US and Israeli embassies in Oslo.
Stand by, friends. I expect that the terrorists will soon cease their rehearsals.

The Jihadis Can Count on CNN in America, the BBC in the UK

Terrorists in Iraq know they can rely on CNN to carry their propaganda as if it were straight news, now the Taliban is having success in placing "news" with the publicly funded British Broadcasting Corporation.

The homepage blurb makes it sound, well, official [emphasis added]:

'Civilians killed' in Nato raids
Scores of civilians have been killed in Nato raids against the Taleban in southern Afghanistan, officials say.
But the true nature of the reporting only becomes clear after you click on the headline to read the story itself [emphasis added]:
Scores of civilians have been killed during Nato operations against Taleban fighters in southern Afghanistan, local officials and civilians say.
Most Britons are going to assume that the BBC means "British officials" when they read "officials" in the headline. Instead, the BBC is relying on the veracity of local chieftains and civilians in Taliban-infested areas for their information.

These are the same sort of people who brought Western news agencies this staged photo, purportedly of a "missile part," but actually an inert artillery shell, that local Afhgan officials and civilians claimed was responsible for numerous civilian deaths in an airstrike on the Taliban.

One would think that with the recent fake news/fauxtography scandals that news agencies would be more careful about checking the veracity of their sources.

Muslim Leader Likens Women to “Piece of Meat”

submissionfoto4.jpgHey I’m not making this stuff up. See men are not required to control themselves. In fact some believe that it is their religious duty to rape an immodest woman. Because the “piece of meat” deserved it.

The Australian: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....

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

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."

Yeah, get back in the kitchen beotch and bake me a pie!
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."

Unfortunately I’m not surprised. Same old Same old Islam. I'm encouraged by the backlash from other Muslim leaders. It's a step in the right direction. A man is not a cat. A man knows his actions. I thought the purpose of Islam was to make humans of animals. Not to excuse the animal from his behaviour. Maybe I'm wrong?

Muhammad Cartoon Case Dismissed

MOHAMMEDCHICS2.jpgFinally, strike a blow for freedom.

Times Online: A Danish court has thrown out a defamation case against the newspaper that first published controversial cartoons of the prophet Muhammad.
The City Court in Aarhus today rejected a lawsuit brought by seven Danish Muslim groups claiming that the 12 drawings printed in Jyllands-Posten were intended to insult the prophet and make a mockery of Islam.

While the cartoons may have offended some Muslims, there was no basis for claiming that the newspaper sought to belittle their faith, the court said.

Carsten Juste, Jyllands-Posten’s editor-in-chief, hailed the decision as a victory for free speech. "Anything but a pure acquittal would have been a disaster for press freedom and the media's possibility to fulfill it’s duties in a democratic society," he said.

The Muslim groups behind the lawsuit said they would appeal.

So to use Michelle’s term "the religion of perpetual outrage" will continue to whine about the cartoons. The truth does hurt but rather than face the issues that inspired the cartoons they seek to suppress that which hurts their pride: The truth.

CNNJazeera's Aid and Comfort The Sniper Video's

Pretty good article

The Prowler: According to CNN, the video was provided after a producer for CNN sent the group an email asking about its activities.

"I think the American public would be interested in exactly what the email contained, at least from the CNN side of things," says a producer for a rival news network, who was made aware of the video's existence before it aired. "My understanding is that email sent by CNN could not be construed any other way than as supportive of the Islamic militants' position in Iraq. There are people inside CNN who are disgusted by their colleagues' activities in Iraq and here in the United States in covering the war."...

...(CNN source)I know that we are saying there was soul-searching here about running the tape. But I didn't see much of that. There were somber people here, but there was also a segment of people on staff, once the tape had run and created a firestorm, that celebrated. They thought they were so courageous."

A former CNN news employee says that at that network there is a decidedly anti-war approach to what they do. "It might not be so clear from some of our anchors, but there are people here who direct the news operation who are very comfortable giving aide and comfort to the enemy. They wouldn't call it that, but I would."

However I disagree very much with this statement
This video, shot by the insurgent groups as propaganda for the Muslim world as well as a recruiting tool for a number of Islamo-fascist websites, showed terrorist snipers attacking American soldiers in Iraq.
No, this video was the #1 top production for Jihadi Sweeps Week. The English subtitles were intended for the American audience. To show our men dying and affect the public's vote.

I am struck by the other video the IAI released. It shows up to ten Iraqi men. I need to get frame grabs of these men. These are Muslim Iraqi men who died for their nation. They must not be forgotten. They are the true martyrs.

That was the video intended for the Iraqi audience.

NYT Ombudsman Admits They Were Wrong to Leak Classified Information


Byron Calame, the reader Ombudsman for the New York Times, has reversed his earlier support for the NYT's decision to publish classified details of a secret government program to trace international terrorist financial transactions. It only took a few months and a Congressional Resolution condemning the Gray Lady's betrayal of the public trust for Calame to see the error of his ways.

The admission is buried on the second page of an article called, "Can ‘Magazines’ of The Times Subsidize News Coverage?" As noted by Michelle Malkin, the mea culpa is loaded with weasel words, but eventually it emerges that Calame thinks the New York Times should not have published details of the secret, and highly successful, program:

I haven’t found any evidence in the intervening months that the surveillance program was illegal under United States laws. Although data-protection authorities in Europe have complained that the formerly secret program violated their rules on privacy, there have been no Times reports of legal action being taken. Data-protection rules are often stricter in Europe than in America, and have been a frequent source of friction.
Expect massive coverage of the New York Times' hideous gaffe by their colleagues in the mainstream press, not.

A must read over at Michael Fumento’s blog:

Most rear-echelon reporters seem to have studied the same handbook, perhaps The Dummies’ Guide to Faux Bravado. It usually begins with the horrific entry into Baghdad International Airport. Time’s Baghdad bureau chief, Aparisim Ghosh, in an August 2006 cover story, devotes five long paragraphs to the alleged horror of landing there.

Indonesian Terrorist Interviewed.

Abu Bakar Bashir.jpgIndonesia has reduced Abu Bakar Bashir, the alleged spiritual leader of Jemaah Islamiyah sentence and he walka free to preach his message of hate and murder once again. The interview gives us a first hand look at how the west can avoid further violence. Submit to and be ruled by Islam.

First Post UK:Just six weeks before last Saturday's terrorist atrocity in Bali, in a jail cell in Jakarta, I interviewed Abu Bakar Bashir, the alleged spiritual leader of Jemaah Islamiyah (JI), al-Qa'eda's main ally in the region, and the group on which western attention is focused in the hunt for culprits.

Bashir was celebrating the news that an Indonesian court had agreed to reduce his 30-month sentence for conspiracy in the 2002 Bali bombings by more than four months, meaning that he will soon walk free…

…Abu Bakar Bashir: The infidel country must be visited and spied upon. If we
don't come to them, they will persecute Islam. They will prevent non-Muslims
converting.

SA: What can the West, especially the US, do to make the world more
peaceful?

ABB: They have to stop fighting Islam. That's impossible because it is
sunnatullah [destiny, a law of nature], as Allah has said in the Koran. If
they want to have peace, they have to accept to be governed by Islam
.

SA: What if they persist?

ABB: We'll keep fighting them and they'll lose. The batil [falsehood] will
lose sooner or later. I sent a letter to Bush. I said that you'll lose and
there is no point for you [to fight us]. This [concept] is found in the
Koran.

SA: Have you met Osama Bin Laden?

ABB: No, no. I want to though. After my release, I hope I can meet him.

SA: Where will you find him?

ABB: If he still exists - but how could I? I have sympathy for his struggle.
Osama is Allah's soldier. When I heard his story, I came to the conclusion
that he's mujahid, a soldier of Allah.

SA: You will always be on his side?

ABB: His tactics and calculations may sometimes be wrong, he's an ordinary
human being after all. I don't agree with all of his actions. Osama believes
in total war. This concept I don't agree with. If this occurs in an Islamic
country, the fitnah [discord] will be felt by Muslims. But to attack them in
their country [America] is fine
.

SA: So this fight will never end?

ABB: Never. This fight is compulsory. Muslims who don't hate America sin.
What I mean by America is George Bush's regime. There is no iman [belief] if one doesn't hate America.

SA: How can the American regime and its policies change?

ABB: We'll see. As long as there is no intention to fight us and Islam
continues to grow there can be peace. This is the doctrine of Islam. Islam
can't be ruled by others. Allah's law must stand above human law. There is
no [example] of Islam and infidels, the right and the wrong, living together
in peace.

Note also that as long as Islam is expanding he can wait. My question is about Isolationism. What happens when Islam has expanded and only the west is left? He says Islam must always expand and spread so the answer is quite apparent.

Embassy bombing Terrorist Dead

Abdelrah1.jpg
Good news, another day another dead terrorist. Pakistan gets five million for a job well done.

CNN: An al Qaeda operative wanted in connection with the 1998 U.S. Embassy bombings was killed in April in Pakistan, American officials have confirmed.
Pakistani officials had said that Muhsin Musa Matwalli Atwah was killed in North Waziristan during an airstrike by Pakistani forces near the border with Afghanistan.
More here from his Wikipedia page.
Mushin Musa Matwalli Atwah (June 19, 1964 – April 12, 2006) was an Egyptian national wanted by the United States government.

Also known as Abdul Rahman, Abdul Rahman Al-Muhajir, Abdel Rahman, and Mohammed K.A., he was wanted by the United States government in connection to the August 7, 1998 American embassy bombings in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and Nairobi, Kenya. For his role in that attack, he was indicted in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York.
Consequently on October 10, 2001, Atwah was placed on the initial list of the FBI's top 22 Most Wanted Terrorists, which was released to the public by President Bush.

Atwah has been suspected of being in Afghanistan as of October 2001.
By early 2006, he was suspected as a key supplier of arms to terrorists battling Pakistani forces in North and South Waziristan.

On April 12, 2006, Atwah was reported by an anonymous Pakistani Cabinet minister to have been killed along with 6 other militants, by Pakistani forces in a helicopter gunship raid on the village of Naghar Kalai near the Afghan border. Villagers reported that armed men removed the bodies.[1] Atwah's death was confirmed by US officials on October 24, 2006, following DNA testing [2]. His profile had been removed from the FBI's most wanted terrorists website by October 20, 2006. [3]

Goodbye Mushin Musa Matwalli Atwah and may the devil do meatballs from your body.

The Only Good Sniper…(Updated)

JUBA1.JPG
…is a US sniper. Michelle Malkin has all the info on how you can support our boys in the field. She also has news that some of CNN’s pretty boys have been killed/captured.

Multi National Force:CAMP AL ASAD, Iraq – The Coalition Forces killed six insurgents, wounded four and netted five sniper rifles Sunday in the Euphrates River city of Hit, Iraq.

The Coalition Force positively identified 10 males conducting insurgent activity in a parking lot prior to engaging them with a heavy volume of fire.

The insurgents were gathered around a car while distributing black masks, AK-47 assault rifles and rocket propelled grenade launchers to one another.

After the engagement the Coalition Force personnel searched three insurgent vehicles in the parking lot and captured the following equipment:

o (5) sniper rifles
o (3) sniper rifle magazines
o (11) AK-47 assault rifles
o (19) AK-47 assault rifle magazines
o (3) rocket propelled grenades with launchers
o (1) RPK machine gun
o (2) PKC machine gun
o (1) video camera
o (1) bullet-proof vest with protective plates
o (2) hand grenades
o (7) load bearing vests
o (8) black masks

During the engagement, some of the insurgent weapons were destroyed, and found burning inside the vehicles.

“Today was significant for Coalition Forces because it reduced the sniper threat in Hit by a considerable margin,” said Lt. Col. Thomas Graves, commanding officer for the Friedburg, Germany-based 1st Battalion, 36th Infantry Regiment.

“We will take advantage of this opportunity by continuing our efforts to develop Iraqi Army and Iraqi Police forces within Hit,” said Graves.

1st Battalion, 36th Infantry Regiment is the Coalition Forces unit responsible for training Iraqi Security Forces and providing security to the city of Hit.

Coalition Forces evacuated the four wounded insurgents to a nearby U.S. military medical facility for treatment. Their condition is unknown at this time.

Hit is a city of about 60,000 located 35 miles northwest of Ramadi in Iraq’s Al Anbar Province.

I for one sure hope it was CNN’s pretty boy (For Ace who somehow thought that I hoped some CNN journalist was abduced or something I dunno, No ace I meant I hoped that it was CNN's sniper buddy in the IAI, Juba that was killed or captured). He seems to be enjoying the attention. Staring his own website and blog. Now you know who or what CNN knows.

Update: Jubaonline.org is hosted where? You will never guess! the good old US of A. Laura Mansfield was onto this Monday and a Jawa reader has pointed me to her post.

Laura Mansfield: It's no secret that jihadists frequently exploit US webservers, email providers, and ISPs in an attempt to spread their propaganda throughout the internet.

So it should come as no surprise to learn that when the Islamic Army of Iraq decided to release their new Juba 2: Baghdad Sniper 2006 video they turned to American-run blogs, webservers, and email providers. Juba 2, like it's predecessor from last fall, documents the sniper attacks of the group on US servicemen in Iraq.

According to whois, the jubaonline.org domain is registered to an Aaron Wilson, of Van Nuys, CA, using the email address mawsuat@yahoo.com. Both Wilson's name and the mawsuat@yahoo.com email address have been used before by other jihadist websites.

The site is hosted on a server in Rochester MN, hosted by Sitegenie LLC

I have the entire whois record below the fold. More to come...

Update II: Very interesting. Several of you I see are doing research of your own. The same friend of the Jawa from above did some more digging last night.

First alboraqmedia.org is the Islamic Army of Iraq's website. Dig around a bit on them and you find a similar registration. Also with the same registration is The Algerian Salafist Army(via blackflag an anti terror website). Very similar but with a different email.

More to come soon I hope....

Update III. Jubaonline.org is offline! So is the alboraqmedia.org. Now they are all down. Gone bye bye.

Jubaonline.org is back up.

I contacted Site Genie by email and phone. They said they have notified the reseller and asked them to take the site down. I suggest we keep up the pressure. Maybe if an effing big indian called they would be more responsive?

Minnesota FBI contact page.

Oh they are so down now, Hell yeah! The keyboard is more mighty than the sword eh?

Update IV: We would like to express our thanks to Site Genie for their quick response. Maybe it wasn't as fast as we would have liked, but then we are impatience little cusses. Often times providers are unaware they are hosting a terrorist website. I've found that most US providers, once aware, will do the right thing. It takes a bit of doing. But we are dealing with corportations here, 48 hours is PDQ for them.

Update V.

alboraqmedia.org is still up in Kentucky. and Juba online has moved to Illinios.

Other urls of interest are
www.iaisite.info
www.al-boraq.com.

IAI site is at http://72.41.39.245

Hosted by ecommerce abuse@ecommerce.com, Note the name of the tech that refused to take the site down. SAID, FATHI. Hmmm. Tell me Said Fathi how does about 20 years in the federal bang you in the ass prison sound?

Hookers for the Troops

(Almere, The Netherlands) A leading female politician wants to provide deployed male Dutch soldiers with Dutch prostitutes. It's anyone's guess what she proposes to provide for female and homosexual Dutch soldiers.

From Ananova:

Annemarie Jorritsma, a politician for the centre-right People's Party for Freedom and Democracy (VVD) and the mayor of the town of Almere, went on national Dutch TV to demand the 'extra benefits' for soldiers.

She added: "The army must think about how their soldiers can let off some steam."

The ideas has been backed by the Dutch sex workers union which said it thought the idea had some merit.

Hmm ... "let off some steam" may not be a good enough reason for the spouses of the troops. Not only that, but the mullahs in Afghanistan might not exhibit a lot of tolerance toward Holland importing hookers. In fact, I'd bet that they would protest quite forcefully.

Email a Terrorist

For Jihadi sweeps week Howie would like to participate by publishing the email addy that was left inside on of the Jihadi Videos.

asdarat@yahoo.com
Let him know how much you appreciate their production work. As always if you get a reply email Rusty immediately.

bonus email: ansar_alsunnah_army@yahoo.com

Actually I may post a couple of the videos later. Since I'm just sure the Jihadis want them released right now and as widely as possible I've been holding off. Just to be difficult. Note in this Video from Ansar al-Sunnah up to 10 people are murdered. Well the actual murder of only three Iraqi army soldiers is shown. But there are many more hostages shown and of course their fate is predictable.

Remeber the more people they murder the more people that will have a score to settle with the Jihadis.

Why I Just Voted Republican

gop_elephant.jpgI just voted. Yes I voted early, but since I'm not a Democrat you don't have to worry about me voting often. In my state we have what is called "early voting". I voted Republican. Mostly. I voted Green for a few local offices. I've no idea why those were partisan races anyway.

Why did I vote Republican in all the major races? Because for the last 6 years we've had an out of control federal government that spends far too much money. I want that to change. But you don't fix that by voting for people who promise changing things by spending even more.

That's the dig faster to get yourself out of the hole strategy I hear a few of my fellow RINOs talking about lately. Yeah, that's real smart.

Could it get any worse under a Democratic Congress? Of course it could! Much worse. Higher taxes and more spending. It's what the Democrats are promising.

And with big-spender Bush in charge, "compromise" will mean spending somewhere between the White House's "way too much" and the Democrat's "obscenely disgusting too much".

Then there is the foreign policy front. This is what really worries me. For every one legitimate criticism by Democrats of Bush foreign policy and Pentagaon ineptness there are 10 fantasies of dangerous proportions. These foreign policy fantasies range from "let the U.N. handle it" to "let's talk about the problem some more" to "ignore it and it doesn't exist".

I'd like to see many of the Bush foreign policy "realists" replaced. The fact is they are not realists. I'd start with Donald Rumsfeld and work my way down.

But the fantasies of the Democratic party are the opposite side of the same coin. It is proper to hold Bush accountable for mistakes made in Iraq, but where is the accountability for the Democrats who essentially wanted to do the same things as Bush, but wanted to go in under the auspices of the U.N.? As if internationalizing the same policy would have made some difference.

Or the accountability for those Democrats who, last year, called for precisely what we are doing right now: training Iraqi forces to defend the country themselves?

And how would things get better by calling an international conference to discuss Iraq? That is what other leading Democrats are saying right now. Calling an international conference. This is what passes for "realism" in Democratic circles.

Working towards realism cannot begin by electing a party that would give France veto power over American foreign policy. It's bizarro logic.

And do you think the Democratic leadership in Congress is really "moderate"?

The Right Place
, using three different measures, has built a scale to measure just how "liberal" or "conservative" each member of Congress is. The lower the number, the more liberal. The higher, the more conservative. The scale ranges from 0-100.

Nanci Pelosi, the next Democratic Speaker of the House? She gets a 6. To put that in perspective, a left-of-center "moderate" should score at least in the 30-40 range.

Should the Democrats take over the Senate Carl Levin would chair the Armed Services Committee and Jay Rockefeller the Intelligence Committee. Both score 9 on the scale.

The Chair of the powerful House Ways and Means Committee would be Charlie Rangel. He scores 4, making him one of the most liberal Congressman in the entire House! You want this guy in charge of the committee that proposes tax bills?

See the whole list here. Anyway, go ahead and vote for the Democrats. That's real smart.

Islamist Holiday Fun

Christmas is a time for peace and good will towards men. The Jihadis celebrate their holidays with the call for Jihad and Slaughter of "Crusaders". Hey nice religion of peas you got there.

Mermi:The film begins with footage of horsemen under the caption: "O ye who believe! What is the matter with you, that, when ye are asked to go forth in the cause of Allah, ye cling heavily to the earth? Do ye prefer the life of this world to the Hereafter? But little is the comfort of this life, as compared with the Hereafter" (Koran 9:38).

Next, several Al-Qaeda leaders and commanders, including bin Laden, Al-Zawahiri, Al-Zarqawi and a number of unidentified young men (who may be field commanders or intended suicide bombers) call upon the Muslims to join the jihad. The following are excerpts:

Al-Zawahiri says: "I urge you, in [the name of] the duty of jihad, which is incumbent upon every Muslim, to hurry and pursue martyrdom in order to kill the Crusaders and the Zionists." An armed individual calls: "[Oh] defenders of the faith, hurry and prepare [for jihad], this is no time for [internal] disagreement." Another individual, sitting under a banner that reads, "Expel the polytheists from the Arabian Peninsula," asks: "Are there no men in this nation?" and a masked individual declares: "Jihad is ancient, and the fate of [all] infidel leaders is one and the same: to be slaughtered."

The video then shows a scene in which a man is beheaded. This is followed by another beheading, even more grisly, in which the severed head is waved in the air.

Not to mention the old chop chop choppity chop. Mermi has the video less the beheadings on their post.

It's like Jihdi sweeps week out there. I have 10 new jihadi videos this AM. Including what I believe is the original sniper video CNN aired earlier in the week.

One thought I have. All the calls for wihtdrawl and hand wringing in the MSM about how bad it is. Is it really that different from any other year. Every year there is a spring offensive and a Ramadan offensive. They never win, but they do stir up quite a bit of violence.

Hastert Chides Pelosi For Her 'Irresponsible' Iraq Withdrawal Scenario

House Speaker Dennis Hastert calls Democratic House leader Nancy Pelosi's views, expressed Sunday in a CBS "Sixty Minutes" segment, "...foolish, naive and dangerous." Speaker Hastert was being too kind. Pelosi's inability to understand the nature of the Global War on Terror was revealed quite clearly in this statement (From CNSNews):

Pelosi told CBS's Leslie Stahl that yes, there are terrorists in Iraq. "But that doesn't mean we stay there. They'll stay there as long as we're there. They're there because we're there," she said.
Pelosi hasn't connected the dots. They're there, and being killed there by the thousands. If we leave, they'll follow us home.

Hastert had more to say about the Democratic leader's gaffe:

"Is the Democrat Minority Leader really turning a blind eye towards the countless number of terrorists that we are fighting in the streets and battlefields of Iraq and also in numerous countries around the world? Does she forget the nearly 3,000 victims of September 11th? The 201 victims of the Madrid train bombings? And the 52 victims of the London bomb attacks? These were all innocent victims of the Global War on Terror. And what about the countless others who have been saved because of our efforts?

Hastert said Pelosi could not be further from reality when she say terrorists are in Iraq only because U.S. troops are there: "If the United States had not brought the fight to foreign soil, terrorists wouldn't disappear -- they would deploy to the United States."

He said that's why President Bush and the Republican-led Congress "have chosen to go on the offensive and take the fight to the terrorists before we have to fight them in American neighborhoods."

Bali Bombers Freed

How can there be an effective campaign against terrorism when there are virtually no meaningful consequences for the perpetrators? This report really frosts my cookies.

From The Courier-Mail:

Two Islamic militants jailed for the Bali bombings that killed 202 people were freed today and nine others had their sentences reduced to mark the end of the Islamic fasting month, officials said.

Indonesia traditionally marks national holidays by cutting prison terms for inmates who exhibit good behaviour - usually by several months - but the decision is likely to anger countries that lost citizens in the 2002 attacks on two crowded nightclubs. [Ya' think?]

Eighty-eight of those killed were Australians.

Sirojul Munir left the jail in East Kalimantan's capital of Balikpapan early today after 45 days were shaved from his five-year sentence, said Edi, a prison official who uses a single name.

The paperwork has been completed for the other militant, Mujarod bin Salim, said Ilham Jaya, the warden at the main prison on Bali island, and he was technically a free man.

He was expected to leave the jail within an hour.

The international community needs to do something about the regular miscarriage of justice occurring in Indonesia. People are being murdered by thug Islamist terrorists with impunity. And it's going to get worse unless pressure is applied on the government to take stronger action. The Bali bombers should have been executed.

The World Gave Us Four Days

Not including the British, of course, who have, for the most part, been staunch allies. The rest of the world gave us four days of support following the al Qaeda terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. It was a dead heat between the French and the Russians over who would squirt in their pants first.

This story from the September 15, 2001 issue of the Guardian documents the cowardice (and, as we learned later, the Europeans and Russians were motivated by venality as well) and how Tony Blair immediately rose to meet the historic challenge:

Tony Blair is unequivocal that Britain should participate fully in the expected US military action. He told a packed Commons, recalled to emergency session yesterday: "Murder of British people in New York is no different in nature from their murder in the heart of Britain itself. In the most direct sense, therefore, we have not just an interest, but an obligation to bring those responsible to account."

But France signalled that it would not automatically support military action. "Our humane, political and functional solidarity [with the US] does not deprive us of our sovereignty and freedom to make up our own minds," the French prime minister, Lionel Jospin, maintained. [spoken like a true, mincing nancyboy. Enjoy your Islamist riots while Paris burns, pussies.-Bluto]

Russia, which initially offered enthusiastic support, was adamant that it would not participate in any "revenge'' attacks. The Russian defence minister, Sergei Ivanov, said there was no chance of the US being allowed to launch attacks from the former Soviet republic. [The Russians found out what was what when Islamists butchered their children in Beslan three years later.-Bluto]

One of the reasons that several European foreign ministries are growing anxious is that the possibility is gaining credibility of a second Gulf war against Iraq to finish off the job begun in 1991 by toppling the Iraqi president, Saddam Hussein.

Of course, the UN oil for food scandal explained all too clearly why these greedy bastards were "growing anxious."

Anyway, I just thought you might like to be reminded that "Nous Sommes Tous les Américains" (We Are All Americans) lasted exactly four days.

Political/News Video Clips - Reliable Source?

Checking out that clip of Nancy Pelosi on 60 Minutes had me thinking, "that may come in handy someday..."

From time to time, I go looking for a particular video clip I've seen here or there. Ronald Reagan's "Tear down that wall," MLK's "I have a dream" and B.J. Clinton's "I did not have sexual relations" are a few classic examples.

Now, if the Dems manage take the House and Pelosi goes back on her "no impeachment" pledge, I'd want to have ready access to her "60 Minutes" quote.

As of today, most of the classic clips are available on YouTube and other video sites, but these sites are far from a reliable storage medium. You may have read that YouTube just recently pulled 30,000 video clips at one time for copyright violations. A YouTube video I find today could be inaccessible tomorrow.

So here's the question: does anyone know of a reliable, publicly accessible source for these types of political video clips?

BBC Admits to Left-Wing Bias, Afraid of British Muslims

bbc_microphone.jpgThe BBC, biased? No, couldn't be!

In a related story, Rusty admits to liking hot chicks, Howie fesses up to being partial to Jesus, Vinnie comes clean with loving the Cornhuskers, Ragnar leaks that he's into war porn, and Bluto cops to being pro-American.

Mike Pechar, though, still in denial about 10th grade crush on hot biology teacher.

Personally I wouldn't characterize the BBC elite as anti-Christian. It's more like anti-religion. They just aren't afraid of offending Christians. The intellectual elite holds all religions equally in disdain. They just don't fear them all. One guess which religion of something something they are afraid to offend?

YNet:

An internal memo, recently discovered by the British media, revealed what the BBC has been trying to hide. Senior figures admitted in a recent 'impartiality' summit that the BBC was guilty of promoting Left-wing views and anti-Christian sentiment....

For the purpose of illustration, the executives were given a scenario in which Jewish Comedian Sasha Baron Cohen would participate in a program titled ‘Room 101’, a studio program where guests would be asked for their opinions on different issues, and allowed to symbolically throw things they hated in a garbage bin.

The executives were asked what they would do if Cohen decided to throw ‘Kosher food’, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Bible, and the Quran in the garbage bin.

The executives said they would allow everything to be thrown in the garbage bin, save the Quran, for fear of offending the British Muslim community.

No reason to worry about offending the Christian community. They stopped killing blasphemers hundreds of years ago. Hat tip:Aramy.

U.S. Pervert Sentenced to Live in Canada

Here is a new twist in the crime and punishment arena.

(Buffalo, New York) In April 2006, 35-year-old Malcolm Watson, an English teacher at the prestigious all-girl Buffalo Seminary, was arrested and charged with sex abuse and endangering the welfare of a child. He was caught in a mall parking lot steaming up his car windows with a 15-year-old female student.

In August, Watson was convicted of child sex abuse and sentenced to live in Canada for three years. To my knowledge, the Canadians were never consulted.

Nevertheless, Watson begins his sentence today, eh?

In all candor, the idea of sending convicted American perverts to another country is quite appealing but I wouldn't select Canada. Someplace further away would be my choice ... maybe a nation in southeast Asia or Africa. Although not greatly distant, a reverse-Mariel boatlift to Cuba might also be doable.

Science! Republicans Keep Senate, Lose House

scientistsatwork.gif
Several studies in The American Political Science Associations' PS: Political Science and Politics journal predict that the Republican Party will retain its majority in the U.S. Senate, but that the Democrats will take over the House of Representative.

It's science. You can't argue with it.

Remember, it took Ph.D.'s with advanced computer modeling to make these predictions. I need a punchline for a joke that goes something like, "What do you call 4 Ph.D.'s who use complex forecasting models to say exactly what that moron Chris Matthews has been saying for months?"

I'm thinking, "Tenured" ought to do the trick.

Klarner and Buchanan predict:

* Democrats will receive 224 seats in the House--6 more than needed for control and a gain of 22 seats overall

* There is a 94.9% probability that Democrats will win the House

* Even when very pro-Republican assumptions were made about who would win primaries, the model predicts Democrats have a 69.2% chance of winning the House and will likely emerge with 220 seats

* Democrats will have 48 Senate seats after the election--a net gain of 3 seats, but 3 short of a majority even when Bernie Sanders and Jim Jeffords (I-VT) are counted as Democrats

* There is a 4.7% chance the Democrats will win a majority in the Senate

* The most competitive Senate races in 2006 are those in Pennsylvania (51% chance of a Democratic win), Minnesota (57%), Ohio (39%), Nevada (36%), and Rhode Island (61%)


Abramowitz, using a different model:

* A Democratic gain of 29 seats in the House of Representatives

* A Democratic gain of 2.5 seats in the Senate, limited by a relatively small GOP exposure of 15 seats in this election cycle

* An advantage of 10 points in the generic vote produces a swing of about 2 Senate seats with all else equal

Science!

Beat Her Lightly

And privately because it’s in the Koran.

WAPO: MORGANTOWN, W.Va. When dealing with a "disobedient wife," a Muslim man has a number of options. First, he should remind her of "the importance of following the instructions of the husband in Islam."
And if that doesn’t work, he should, you know, smack the bitch around a bit.
The notion of using physical punishment as a "disciplinary action," as Sheha suggests, especially for "controlling or mastering women" or others who "enjoy being beaten," is common throughout the Muslim world. Indeed, I first encountered Sheha's work at my Morgantown mosque, where a Muslim student group handed it out to male worshipers after Friday prayers one day a few years ago...

….Not long after I picked up the free Saudi book, Mahmoud Shalash, an imam from Lexington, Ky., stood at the pulpit of my mosque and offered marital advice to the 100 or so men sitting before him. He repeated the three-step plan, with "beat them" as his final suggestion. Upstairs, in the women's balcony, sat a Muslim friend who had recently left her husband, who she said had abused her; her spouse sat among the men in the main hall.

At the sermon's end, I approached Shalash. "This is America," I protested. "How can you tell men to beat their wives?"

"They should beat them lightly," he explained. "It's in the Koran."

In the Koran yes, but to be fair you should only beat her until Submission.

'Human Shield' Jailed For Putting Teenager in Coma

Alleged "peace activist" and "pacifist" Christiaan Briggs has been sentenced to eight months for cold-cocking a teenager, resulting in traumatic brain injury when the teen's head struck the pavement, in a dispute over Briggs' ogling of the teen's girlfriend.

1smirkythepeaceactivist.jpg

From Life Style Extra (UK):

A smirking peace activist who left a rising rock star fighting for his life after a row over his girlfriend was jailed for eight months today.

Christiaan Briggs, 30, attacked 19-year-old singer Billy Leeson and left him in a coma, after Mr Leeson asked him to stop staring at his girlfriend on a late night number 29 bus.

After punching the teenager Briggs, who went to Iraq as a peace activist in 2003, walked away "smirking".

Mr Leeson fell into a coma when he hit his head in the pavement and the judge at Snaresbrook Crown Court said: "It was obviously a miracle that he lived."

Briggs' lawyer argued for leniency (apparently successfully, given the wrist-slap sentence) saying that Briggs was a "committed pacifist" who was "absolutely horrified by his behaviour."

I guess you can tell by the smirk.

Briggs' swinish behavior perfectly illustrates the utter arrogance of the mindset that leads people to become human shields for barbaric regimes. It's not as unusual as it sounds for peace types to show vicious tendencies. A year ago, Quakers planned and held a series of death parties to celebrate the 2000th US servicemember killed, claiming they were commemorations.

Israel May Retake Gaza-Egypt Border

(Jerusalem) Since the Israelis vacated the Gaza Strip, weapons have been arriving from Egypt at a disturbing and deadly rate. Given that they are then used against the Israelis, it's logical to take action to stop the supply.

From AlertNet:

Several Israeli cabinet ministers called on Sunday for a military operation to retake control of Gaza's southern border and prevent Palestinian militants smuggling weapons from neighbouring Egypt.

"Action must be taken without hesitation. Any hesitation is dangerous and we must act immediately," Industry and Trade Minister Eli Yishai of the religious party Shas told reporters.

It's estimated that tons of weapons and ordnance have been smuggled into Gaza from Egypt via tunnels. The flow needs to be stopped but nothing will likely happen prior to Prime Minister Olmert's Washington trip, scheduled for mid-November. Of course, any action by Israel will be reported by the elite media as unwarranted aggression.

So, in an effort to level the playing field, early this morning, I put together a list of 45 key races that right-of-center bloggers can Googlebomb as well.

So, if you're interested in helping us to achieve Googlebomb parity with our comrades on the left in the search engine arms race, then just post the following code on your blog:

Generic Youths Burn Bus in Paris.

Generic Youths of in Paris are celebrating last years generic riots in Paris this week by burning a bus.

The MSM are preparing to cover more generic violence by angry generic youths in remembrance last year’s generic violence.

International Herald Tribune: PARIS Police held two teenagers for questioning Monday after a gang of youths forced passengers out of a bus in a Paris suburb this weekend and set it on fire, officials said.

The two teens, aged 13 and 18, were rounded up after the attack Sunday in Grigny, south of Paris, and were being held in a regional police office in nearby Evry, police said.

The attack came days before France is to mark the one-year anniversary of the start of three weeks of riots by youths in poor neighborhoods.

Sunday's assailants, some wearing masks, forced passengers out of the bus in broad daylight, set it ablaze and then stoned firefighters who came to the rescue, police officials said. The local prefecture said nearly 30 youths were involved in the incident.

The attack followed nearly a half-dozen incidents in recent weeks in which suburban youths have attacked police officers, in some cases in planned ambushes.

Such clashes have raised tensions ahead of Friday's anniversary of the start of the 2005 riots, which laid bare the problems of racism and discrimination faced by poor youths of immigrant origin.

Those poor generic youths! I bet burning busses and trashing old rich Fwench guy’s cars will make them more likely to hire generic youths. I must know more about these generic youths. I’ll keep clicking. Hold on. More here from the Telegraph UK who mentions the many of the generic youths who rioted last year were mostly Muslim.
Youths from France’s run-down suburban estates began rioting on October 27, 2005, after two teenagers of North African origin died when they were accidentally electrocuted in a sub-station while trying to flee police in Clichy-sous-Bois, east of Paris.

Riots erupted over the following weeks in most of the country’s major cities. Many of those involved were from Muslim immigrant families, prompting a debate about integration and discrimination in France. Amid fears of a fresh eruption of violence, Jean-Louis Borloo, France’s minister for social cohesion, on Sunday evening called for people to act responsibly because “tensions are raw just as we’re in the process of resolving the difficulties.”

So remember, act responsibly and call them youths. Since, you know, it would be incorrect to demand the youths act responsibly. And the strongest statement so I can find so far from the Fwench
The Australian: District police chief Jean-Francois Papineau called the bus attack "deliberate".
Deliberate? I’m sure the youths accidentally burned the bus. Better watch that word deliberate you could start a riot or something. Still searching to find of which generic youths burned the bus. One minute….Oh here it is.
Pipeline News: October 23, 2006 - San Francisco, CA - PipeLineNews.org - French police found themselves once again under attack by firebomb wielding North African Muslim immigrants on Sunday.

The Paris suburb of Grigny was the scene of the pitched battle which featured 50 Islamic youths rampaging through the streets taunting police, pelting them with rocks and torching passenger vehicles including a bus.

No, you have got to be kidding me! I’d have never guessed. And I'm damn sure not going to call the riots terrorism. Terrorism is using fear of violence to achive a political goal. I'm sure these boys were just expressing themselves. Add the that the fact that, if I called it terrorism, I might upset some generic youths and cause a riot.

China's Blog Real Name System

Predictably, the communist Chinese government will soon require real name registration for bloggers. Pseudonyms will not be allowed.

From Xinhuanet.com:

With widespread online rumor saying China will implement a blog real name system, the Internet Society of China (ISC) has clarified that so far the Ministry of Information Industry has not officially made any related policies.

However, a real name system will be an unavoidable choice if China wants to standardize and develop its blog industry, Huang Chengqing, ISC secretary general, told Xinhua on Sunday.

Blog industry? What's that?
The ISC, affiliated to the Ministry of Information Industry, was entrusted by the ministry to form a blog research panel to provide solutions for the development of China's blog industry.

"We suggest, in a recent report submitted to the ministry, that a real name system be implemented in China's blog industry," Huang said.

[ ... ]

Huang said the foundation of the blog real name system is an equilibrium between freedom and responsibility. "There exists no freedom without any abstention, and to limit also benefits the further development of this industry."

He said the system they have recommended is a background real name system, which requires bloggers provide their real names and other real information when applying for a blog but allows them to use pseudonyms in their blog articles.

So, let me see if I understand this scheme correctly. Bloggers will enjoy an equilibrium between freedom and responsibility by providing their real names and other "real" information to the ChiComs who, by the way, have been directly responsible for the deaths of millions of citizens.

Freedom and responsibility? Yeah, right! Only useful idiots will be fooled by this blatant ploy to censor Internet content by controlling, and eliminating when necessary, the individual bloggers.

Come on! You didn't think the communists would ever really allow free speech, did you?

The Shape of Things to Come

In an uncharacteristically honest appraisal of what leading Democrats are plotting following a successful takeover of the House, Newsweek reveals why jihadis all over the world are praying to Allah for a Democratic victory in November:

Dingell is careful to say he is not out to get George W. Bush, or the Republicans, and insists he will extend his hand to his GOP colleagues and conduct "oversight thoughtfully and responsibly." He says "there's no list" of things he wants to investigate. But in the next breath, he quickly ticks off a list of things he wants to investigate: The Bush administration's handling of port security and the threat of nuclear smuggling; computer privacy; climate change; concentration of media ownership; the new Medicare Part D program, which he calls a "massive scandal," and the secret meetings of Vice President Dick Cheney's energy task force. "This is a hardheaded administration," Dingell says. "So we'll probably have lots of hearings."

The House of Representatives is full of John Dingell Democrats—exiled committee chairmen awaiting the day they can reclaim the center chair on the dais. All carry lists—if only in their heads—of issues and outrages they believe Republicans have failed to probe because such questions would be politically embarrassing to the president. Henry Waxman of California is another Democratic old-timer whose ire never dims. A tireless investigator, he's in line to head the Government Reform Committee, and plans to take aim at Halliburton and alleged rip-offs and contract abuse in Iraq. Then there's Charles Rangel, the New York congressman who's never met a cable show he didn't like. He is set to take over the Ways and Means Committee, and wants to take a hard look at the Bush tax cuts. John Conyers of Michigan has waited for years to head the Judiciary Committee. He's likely to convene hearings on the Patriot Act and domestic wiretapping. In the past, he has suggested the possibility of impeachment hearings for President Bush.

Stop listening to suspected terrorist phone calls, stop interrogating captured terrorists, redeploy the troops to Okinawa, continue the relentless efforts to criminalize their political enemies...but you don't you dare question their patriotism.

Ignorant Race-Baiting From the Guardian

The Drudge Report, which should know better, links to this pathetically uninformed Guardian story designed to foment racial resentment, and, incidentally, attack a rarity in Hollywood these days - an unabashedly patriotic movie.

Flags of Our Fathers opened yesterday, and the Guardian immediately launched their assault[emphasis added]:

in Flags of Our Fathers, Clint Eastwood's big-budget, Oscar-tipped film of the battle for the Japanese island that opened on Friday in the US. While the film's battle scenes show scores of young soldiers in combat, none of them are African-American. Yet almost 900 African-American troops took part in the battle of Iwo Jima, including Sgt McPhatter.
The Guardian is not a newspaper that likes to let a little fact-checking get in the way of a good rant. If they were, they might have found out that the United States sent 110,000 Marines to invade Iwo Jima. That means that the 900 African Americans who participated represented eight tenths of one percent of the invasion force.

So, if the movie, as the Guardian says, portrayed "scores of young soldiers" (and by the way, they weren't "soldiers", they were Marines, you insipid socialist limey jackasses), and we generously allow "scores" to mean "100," that means that a proportional representation of African Americans would require that eight tenths of a Marine be portrayed as black. Given the ferocity of the battle for Iwo Jima, perhaps that would be appropriate.

What's not appropriate is for a foreign leftist scandal rag, whose editors are so blindingly stupid that they don't even know the difference between a soldier and a Marine, should seek to foment racial tension.

Update: Just for "Joe Public", the commenter from The Netherlands who doesn't see why I refer to the folks at the Guardian as "blindingly stupid," this should explain it.

Update by Vinnie Not race baiting, but blindingly stupid nonetheless. Who knew she could join forces, albeit unwittingly, with the leftist Guardian?

Um...me. And Bluto. Rusty, Howie come to mind too. Sorry to intrude on your post, Bluto, but the he-bitch hasn't been slapped in a awhile.

Damn, it feels good to be a gangstah!

Socially Responsible Warfare

Check out the latest from the UK. I guess we're seeing the end of hot lead and loud noises on the battlefield.

From Reuters:

British arms manufacturer BAE Systems is planning to design 'green' munitions, including lead-free bullets and rockets with reduced toxins, Britain's Times reports. Also in the pipeline are jets, fighting vehicles and artillery without dangerous compounds which can "harm the environment and pose a risk to people," the company is quoted as saying.

"Weapons are going to be used and when they are, we try to make them as safe for the user as possible," said Dr Debbie Allen, director of the company's corporate social responsibility.

BAE Systems has full support from Britain's Ministry of Defence, which wants to see quieter warheads in order to reduce noise pollution and grenades that produce less smoke.

Mystery Blog Linked To Dem Moneyman Soros?

Dan at Rhiel World View has been connecting the dots in the Foley/Democratic Dirty Tricks Squad scandal, and the dots are starting to point toward ultra-leftwing sugardaddy George Soros. The anti-dirty tricks blog Stop October Surprises claims to have traced an IP representing the now expunged blog Stop Sexual Predators to the Human Rights Campaign a liberal group connected to People for the American Way, and thus to Soros (all roads are leading to Royal Oak, Michigan). This new information gibes with news accounts saying that Democratic Party operatives werre shopping the Foley story to the Press months before it broke.

The evidence is pointing toward a conspiracy within the Democratic Party and its supporters to withhold information about Mark Foley's suspected peccadilloes until it was politically expedient to release it. In other words, it was never about the "children," it was always about exploiting the children for political gain.

House Chair: 'CNN Publicist For Enemy Propaganda

From the Los Angeles Times:

SAN DIEGO — CNN has become "the publicist for an enemy propaganda film" by broadcasting a video showing an insurgent sniper in Iraq apparently killing an American soldier, the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee said here Friday.

Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-El Cajon) called for the Pentagon to oust any CNN reporter embedded with U.S. troops in Iraq.

"I think Americans like to think we're all in this together," Hunter said. "The average American Marine or soldier has concluded after seeing that film that CNN is not on their side."

Since CNN chief news exec Eason Jordan (who later resigned in disgrace for slandering US troops) has admitted that CNN's Baghdad bureau deliberately concealed news of Saddam's atrocities prior to the invasion of Iraq, perhaps no CNN "journalist's" credentials should be considered valid by any US government entity.

One Man's Message to the Democrats (NSFW)

By Ragnar Danneskjold, Typical Bitter Gun-Clinger at 08:53 AM | Comments |

A Letter About Stoning

Dhimmiwatch has posted a remarkable letter from a man who’s mother was sentenced to death under Sharia in Iran and stoned to death. The Mullah who sentenced her to death said he wanted to be sure she suffered as an example to others. Well that has about as much chance as stopping people from having sex as it does to stop the tides.

Besides should Allah judge this woman deserving of suffering is he not capable of delivering his own punishment? I don’t see God’s will at play, I see men playing God.

I’m a bit apprehensive about posting this. Because after all my distaste for Sharia Law only serves to reveal the fact that I don’t really understand it. Yes, if I weren’t so ignorant about the true Islamic Sharia, by golly I’d shed my unfair bias and be shouting it’s virtues far and wide.

Via Robert Spencer's Dhimmiwatch: The Sharia that the jihadists are laboring to impose upon us is the Sharia that cost this boy his mother, and scarred his life forever after.

All decent people, all people who still retain an ounce of humanity, should resist it. This is a post from the Iranian the blog of Azadeh Pourzand thanks again to James): "A letter about Stoning to Death."

And the text of the letter
Hello.

I read your recent article about stoning to death.

Reading your article reminded me of the bleeding bruises in my heart once again.

You wrote about murdering by stoning?

Have you ever held a bloody tool in your hands with which they have murdered your mother?

Have you ever touched the bloody skin and hair of your mother who has just been killed in a deep hole?

Have you ever followed the line of your mother’s blood in order to find her corpse thrown at the back of a truck?

Have you ever seen the fresh grave of that dearest being with a small piece of paper on which they have written her name wrapped around a small branch of tree?

Has anyone ever said a word about the children of the people who have been stoned to death?

I was fourteen and now I am forty.

To quote psychologists, I am one of the most fortunate people on this planet. I am fortunate, because despite this contempt in my life I have been able to continue my higher education and find myself a wife, children and a credible job without letting a single black spot remain in my life.

Do you even understand what it means to be the child of a person who has been shamefully stoned to death?

If Islamic clerics tell you that you could not win over the Islamic laws, they have, indeed told you the truth.

My mother used to tell me that she had become a sex-worker in order to feed us and to support us. She used to command us in being real men.
She used to tell us to stand on our own feet and to never lose our hope in Ali (the first imam in shiasm).

Seriously who would want to sell her body, to sell her sex to
anonymous men except for those women who have no other way of feeding their children?

If the husband knows how to make money, the wife and the mother of the family does not have to go and seek customers.

The economic situation needs to improve and single mothers or those mothers whose husbands do not have the ability or the willpower to work, should be able to seek help from the government.

You must establish an organization for supporting these women. It does not have to be a very rich organization in the beginning. No one has the right to condemn you for seeking financial support from different sources for these types of support organizations. Women like my mother who was eventually stoned to death need your help. They need the world’s help and support. Their forgotten families, too, need the world’s help. Help them!

Executing people for having not immoral actions is not going to have an effective result.

Tell me how many people have been executed and stoned to death since the beginning of the Islamic Revolution in Iran…What is the result of all of this violence other than the fact that the evil is now truly dominating our society?

I never forget the last words of my mother’s Islamic judge:

“I issued a verdict for stoning this woman to death so that other individuals learn a lesson from her doomed fate and to avoid sins of such nature. To execute by shooting would not have made her suffer enough!”

Alas. Twenty six years ago my mother was stoned to death before my eyes. Has these women’s tragic fate helped our society improve?

Statistics show that the rates of prostitution and corruption have increased exponentially.

God bless you!

If only I weren’t so ignorant of the true nature of Joseph Stalin, I’m sure I could come away from my biased distaste for Communism, roll up my sleeves and start helping reconstitute the wonderful, but misunderstood, USSR. Tell China they are all a bunch of good old boys and send Fidel Castro a nice Hallmark.

Although I found this via meme and Dhimmiwatch Ali Eteraz at Dean’s World claims to have posted on it first. I link him here as a courtesy.

As far as I know the unwritten blog rules say you should link the originator. So since I have multiple claims of origination here, I’m attempting to avoid a pissing match for once.

A note here, if a blogger has multiple sources and likes one better and uses that one. I don’t blame him for using the other source. Of course source 2 will again use this as an excuse to attack him.

Never mind the support for your post you are getting. See, since you all linked the same blog you are now riding Robert’s meme thread. Don’t forget to thank him.

Oh by the way, thanks.

It's Official: Sen. Kennedy a Traitor

Not that all of you haven't known that for some time. And to think, his big brother almost started a nuclear war standing up to the Soviets. I wonder what Jack would say now?

Sicky Notes has this from CNS News:

a KGB letter written at the height of the Cold War that shows that Sen. Edward Kennedy (D-Mass.) offered to assist Soviet leaders in formulating a public relations strategy to counter President Reagan's foreign policy and to complicate his re-election efforts.
Is there a statute of limitations on treason?

Media Elites: 'Public Numb to US Deaths in Iraq'

Media types are trying to understand why their carefully crafted agenda journalism, and fake and staged news, are not having the desired effect among the lumpen proletariat.

Reuters explains the latest mainstream meme, the public is "numb" to Iraq war deaths:

But with the U.S. military death toll hitting 2,787 on Friday, and with 73 deaths so far in October, it is shaping up to be the deadliest month for U.S. forces since the Falluja offensive two years ago.

Analysts said even local media coverage struggles to overcome the numbing affect of the steady flow of deaths.

"In Iraq, certainly while we were losing relatively small numbers of soldiers early on, I think that was a huge shock," said Max Boot, a senior fellow of national security studies at the New York-based Council on Foreign Relations.

"But now that it's kind of accumulated it doesn't have as much of a shock value. This is reminiscent of (Soviet dictator Joseph) Stalin's phrase about how 'one death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.' There's some truth to that."

This is exactly the sort of story one could expect from Reuters, which still refuses to use the word terrorist. They have a tendency to throw Occam's Razor overboard, and over-intellectualize the things that puzzle them.

Apparently, the think-tankers and journalists see "numbness" because of the lack of Vietnam-era style mass demonstrations, as no other reason for believing Americans don't care about their war dead is mentioned. What they're really saying is that Americans are not reacting in the way they would prefer, by calling for retreat and surrender in the War on Terror.

Here's a hint for these poor souls: We are at war. We were attacked in our own homeland. Our soldiers are fighting a war. Everyone, with the exception of certain elite types, knows that people die in a war. The remarkable thing about this war is not that American warriors are dying, but that so few are - a tribute to their training, tactics, and determination.

And many of us are onto the tactics you treasonous weasels have been perfecting since Vietnam. Leave it to al-Reuters to write a story about American dead in the War on Terror...and never once mention 9/11.

We are at war, and most Americans know it.

Democrats Trying to Suppress Religious Vote

churchstate.gifDemocrats, so I was told on NPR last night, are trying to reconnect to religious Americans who vote overwhelmingly for the Republican party. So, how are they doing that? By trying to suppress the vote of religious Americans.

Last night I went down to the church where I regularly attend for a small group meeting. I was early. When I got to there, I found a flyer from Americans United for Separation of Church and State taped to the door.

The flyer had "pastor" written on it. It warned that churches endorsing political candidates could lose their tax exempt status. Here is a copy of a similar letter. The version of the letter I got, which also bore the Americans United for Separation of Church and State logo on it, also cited court cases in which churches were prosecuted.

The rather thinly veiled threat was that churches that endorse political candidates or even distribute values based voter guides, might be held to account. If you talk about politics in your church, we will take you to court.

I wonder how many of these flyers were taped to the doors of churches with largely African-American members? The kind of churches which routinely invite Democratic candidates to speak from the pulpit.

Now, my church never endorses political candidates. It is official church policy. I've personally never felt like talking politics was appropriate anywhere in church, not even during our monthly potluck dinner.

But, even so, there is a general consensus among the members that any party that can't take a stand against gay marriage or abortion might not be exactly what you'd call 'Christian'. The feeling isn't shared by all, but talking positively about Democrats, even at potluck, is a sure way to get a dirty look or a scowl.

And this is in a very theologically liberal church. As I mentioned, we are eschatological universalists in our core doctrine.

But I do not respond to threats kindly. And since my voice carries a bit of weight with the other congegants, I can promise you this one thing: I will no longer be silent about making my political preferences known.

Not only did the local Democratic party activist who taped this to our church just ensure that I will vote, but that of most of my fellow church members. And I have a feeling that the local Baptist ministers will also not be amused. And there are a lot of Baptists around here.

Fatwa Issued Against...

howiebeheadinsult.jpg...The Daily Star for being a bunch of pussies.

News Independent UK:A staff revolt at the Daily Star prevented publication of a spoof Islamic version of the paper called the "Daily Fatwa".

Muslim commentators said yesterday that the newspaper's attempt on Monday evening to mock Sharia law could have sparked international protests similar to those that followed publication by a Danish newspaper of cartoons of the prophet Muhammad.

The mock-up "Daily Fatwa", which promised a "Page 3 Burkha Babes Special" and competitions to "Burn a Flag and Win a Corsa" and "Win hooks just like Hamza's", was prepared to run as page 6 in Wednesday's edition of the Daily Star, one of the stable of newspapers owned by publisher Richard Desmond.

The page also included a spoof leader column under the headline "Allah is Great" but left blank save for a stamp with the word "Censored".

But shortly before the Star was due to go to press on Tuesday evening, concerned members of the National of Journalists (NUJ) called an emergency meeting in the 9th floor canteen of Desmond's Northern & Shell building beside the River Thames.

After 25 minutes, the NUJ chapel passed a motion saying that the article was "deliberately offensive" to Muslims.

The motion read: "The chapel fears that this editorial content poses a very serious risk of violent and dangerous reprisals from religious fanatics who may take offence at these articles. This may place the staff in great jeopardy. This chapel urges the management to remove the content immediately."

Given that most people like their heads attatched to their body it is understandable. A mistake though, no community should be above being made fun of due to threats of violence. Note the recent cartoon contests in Iran as an example of Muslim hypocrisy on this issue.

U.N. or Australian Intervention in Indonesia?

Stan the Infidel says it may be time for the U.N. ir Australia to intervene in Indonesia to stop the persecution of Christians. It's very unlikely that Indonesia would allow that. But the pressure for such an intervention may spur the government to act more forcefully.

Here is the letter Stan just sent me:

After many discussions between the denominations, a decision was made to approach the United Nations ( I personally vote for Australia as the UN has shown to be pro-Muslim and anti-Semetic/anti-Christian, in it's support of recent times) if the Irianto case has not be solved quickly. The police have previously claimed to know who the killer is (see Police identify killers) and the motive (see Police find motive) and the suspects (see Hasanuddin group suspected). We wonder whether this is really true or whether the government is just dishing out the lip service it is famous for. For the most part we are skeptical. It might have been the police or military who killed him for all we know.

Here's the latest posting in the Jakarta Post about our situation here in the article Police say tougher law needed and my latest included the Post article UN to be asked to resolve Central Sulawesi crisis?

If the UN refuses our request (if we are pressed to make the request because of police incapability to solve the murder) or the government refuses to allow UN intervention in Central Sulawesi, I'm guessing that will be a "green light" for all Muslim militants, police and military to have an "open hunting season" on Christians in the area. But mark my words, we will fight back if all peaceful diplomatic options fail and we are attacked.
Difficult times lay ahead, either way.

Muslims Attack Apostates in Ethiopia

Bad news: some Muslims who converted to Christianity were attacked by a mob in Ethiopia led by local clerics. Apostasy is a capital offense under Islamic law.

Good news: some other Muslims denounced the attack. Oh, and then they left Islam because apparently it's not such a religion of peace after all.

UPDATE:
Q: Is this what they mean by vicious cycle of violence? You know: a) Muslims convert to some other religions. b) Muslims attack apostates c) Muslims leave Islam in protest d) back to a

Assist News:

The Washington-DC based human rights group, International Christian Concern (ICC), has just been informed that on July 20, 7 Muslim leaders (clerics) brutally attacked 50 or more Christians in Henno, Ethiopia.

In a news release, ICC says, “This latest attack is just one example of the increasing violence against Christians in Ethiopia. In fact, Islamic leaders are urging Muslims in the area to kill full-time Christian evangelists. The situation has reached such intensity that Christian leaders are in fear and moving in pairs to ward off attacks. Local Muslim authorities failed to take action against the Muslim attackers.”...


The release goes on to say, “In 2005, two prominent Muslims in Henno converted to Christianity: ‘H,’ a well known Muslim leader, and ‘M,’ the son of a well-respected Muslim tribal leader. The two conversions angered Muslim leaders in the surrounding region. On July 20, 2006, ‘M’ hosted a worship service for the other Christians in Henno and invited a choir from the Sidama region.

“The worship service gained the attention of the whole village, including Muslim leaders who responded violently by instigating a riot, using gangs in the area. The gangs were carrying local weapons such as knives, stones, and metal rods.

“The Muslim leaders demanded the expulsion of the choir from the area. The new believer and former Muslim leader, ‘H,’ refused to stop the service despite their pressure. Consequently, the crowd began to beat ‘H’ and other Christians in the house with their weapons.”

According to ICC, “H” was beaten badly, receiving five deep wounds to his head. Because he was beaten with an iron rod, he was also missing teeth. He suffered deep lacerations to his legs, where several ligaments protruded from the skin. “H’s” daughter-in-law was pregnant at the time but lost her baby because she was also severely beaten.

In total, twelve people were seriously injured; five others were found to have lacerations on their body and received medical treatment in Shashamene Kuyera Hospital. “H” also received care and has recovered from the attack.

The release went on to say that the Christians reported the riot to the district government administrative office, which took no legal action. Instead, the officers warned Christians not to worship in a region that is predominately Muslim. It is important to note that all officers who heard the case were in fact Muslim. The case was then taken to a higher police authority. The police responded by arresting 26 gang members. However, they were released quickly because tribal elders appealed to the government.

An Encouraging Note: In the following weeks, many Muslims denounced the actions taken against the Christians. To express their disgust, Muslims refused to go to Mosques. In fact, forty-seven key leaders became Christians and renounced Islam stating, ‘If Islam means killing innocent brothers and sisters – we do not want to follow it!’

Democrat Staffer Suspended in Investigation of NIE Leak

Don't count on this being big news in the mainstream media, but the chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has suspended a Democratic staffer to the Committee due to the "coincidence" of this staffer having requested information that was later leaked to the New York Times.

That information, one sentence from the National Intelligence Estimate, was the basis for this political attack story (now safely hidden behind the Times Select wall) against the Bush administration. Here are a few things that were left out of the leak, making it clear that the leak was a partisan attack.

From the Los Angeles Times:

WASHINGTON -- House Intelligence Chairman Peter Hoekstra has suspended a Democratic staff member because of concerns he may have leaked a high-level intelligence assessment to The New York Times last month.

In a letter obtained by The Associated Press Thursday night, Rep. Ray LaHood, R-Ill., a committee member, said that an unidentified staffer requested the document from National Intelligence Director John Negroponte three days before the Sept. 23 story about its conclusions.

The staffer received the National Intelligence Estimate on global terror trends on Sept. 21.

"I have no credible information to say any classified information was leaked from the committee's minority staff, but the implications of such would be dramatic," LaHood wrote Hoekstra, R-Mich., late last month. "This may, in fact, be only coincidence, and simply 'look bad.' But coincidence, in this town, is rare."

Democratic members of the House Intelligence Committee, their staffers, and the New York Times aren't talking.

I Don't Have Time for Anderson Cooper

CNN has apparently decided that airing jihadist snuff films "meets their newsworthiness criteria", a statement with which I have to agree. Well, except for the crazy implication that there are actual standards involved:

We are assuming they included the sniper tape to prove the authenticity of the Al-Shimary interview tape and to establish their credibility.

Choosing to air the video, rather just watching it, is a little like eating poop, rather than just smelling it, to verify that the patient has a working digestive system. Aw shucks, it's an acquired taste.

And one might be forgiven for thinking that in this traitorous explanation/apology he might go on to at least explain what those ideosyncratic "standards" were, but alas. What he offers is a juvenile "and besides":

...with 73 U.S. military casualties so far this month, October is already the third highest month for U.S. deaths in Iraq since the war began. In fact, many of them are victims of sniper attacks.

Well, that's the man bites dog angle... while the dog bites man story about US counterinsurgent forces killing from 4000 to 10,000 al Qaeda fighters (according to... al Qaeda) is apparently not worth mentioning, let alone airing on video.

That decision, as well as the decision to build a piece around the sniper tape -- in fact, all the decisions about this story -- were subject to hours of intense editorial debate at the highest levels here at CNN.

This isn't so much an explanation as an admission that CNN's upper echelon now fully participates in Ted Turner's Fonda-induced senile dementia. It's news if it contributes to the miasmic impression that the US is losing to the Jihadist minutemen. If not, it's fluff.

I could say something crude here, but I'd never be able to top Cooper.

Britain al Qaeda 3.0's Main Target

Why would al Qaeda 3.0 target Britain? Large numbers of Asians of Pakistani origin in the U.K.

Guardian:

"They viewed 7/7 as just the beginning," said one senior source. "Al-Qaida sees the UK as a massive opportunity to cause loss of life and embarrassment to the authorities." A second source agreed: "Britain is sitting at the receiving end of an al-Qaida campaign."
The article goes on to suggest that al Qaeda 3.0 is much more organized than initially suspected, but I doubt that it is as hierarchically cohesive as the artivle suggests. Going to Pakistan and receiving some money and words of encouragement is not the same thing as having a committee meetings to discuss forming a sub-committee to draw up plans for board meeting approval.

Al Qaeda 3.0 does not need directions from Osama bin Laden. Self-motivated, self-sustaining, self-directed cells plan and carry out attacks. They only need inspiration, not direction, from the al Qaeda leadership.

And while the British authorities are busy denying it, it is clear that mosques and Islamic study groups are the source of these new home-grown cells. In fact, I would argue that many of the so-called moderate Muslim leaders in Britain are the inspiration for these jihadis.

While these moderates decry violence against the British government, many of them openly support sharia---only imposed through democratic means. Even more--in fact, probably the vast majority of Muslim clerics--describe British policies in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central Asia using descriptors such as genocide and mass murder.

The disenchanted mosque member cannot be blamed when he asks his Imam, "Why is it wrong to fight if what the British government is doing is genocide?". And to that, clerics have no coherent answers.

They are only taking the words of moderate Muslim leaders to their logical conclusion because moral beings should fight governments that commit genocide.

Ben Affleck Disses Retards, Grabs Reporter's Boobs on Video

ben_affleck_retard.gifAmerica's worst actor and the man known around The Jawa Report water-cooler as the anti-Christ, Matt Damon Ben Affleck, has been caught making fun of people with cerebral palsy. The man who once fell in love with Eric Cartman's hand, Jennifer Lopez, can be seen in the video appearing drunk, groping the interviewer and asking her if she has a boyfriend. He even manages to grope some boobage.

The video is below.

But those in the differently-abled community don't seem to think Affleck's cerebral palsy act and boorish behavior was all that offensive. Kind of like the way that black people can get away with saying niggah and Carlos Mencia can get away with goofing on beaners.

Jihadis Support Democrats

This article is related to Bluto’s post below (Yes, Iraq is Like Vietnam). NYT Via American Thinker:

The jihadists follow our politics much more closely than people realize. A friend at the Pentagon just sent me a post by the “Global Islamic Media Front” carried by the jihadist Web site Ana al-Muslim on Aug. 11. It begins: “The people of jihad need to carry out a media war that is parallel to the military war and exert all possible efforts to wage it successfully…

…It then explains that for jihadist videos of attacks on Americans to have the biggest impact, “Some persons will be needed who are proficient in the use of computer graphics including Photoshop, 3D Studio Max, or other programs that the people of jihad will need to design … video clips about the operations.”

Finally, the Web site suggests that jihadists flood e-mail and video of their operations to “chat rooms,” “television channels,” and to “famous U.S. authors who have public e-mail addresses … such as Friedman, Chomsky, Fukuyama, Huntington and others.” This is the first time I’ve ever been on the same mailing list with Noam Chomsky.

This came to us a couple days ago and I am just getting to it. However, armed with the knowledge that the Jihadi’s need me to help get their message out, I obliged them by totally butchering their propaganda here.

It's not so much that they support Democrats but they do want them to win. They want us to fight amongst ourselves. They want our resolve to erode. Because that is their only hope to win. They have no method to defeat us other than to wait for us to defeat ourselves.

I hope they liked my translation. No need to thank me, Glad to errrr, uh, help out, sort of.

Yes, Iraq IS Like Vietnam

But not for the reasons reporters think, or are willing to admit.

From the Washington Post:

GREENSBORO, N.C., Oct. 18 -- President Bush said Wednesday that the current surge of violence in Iraq "could be" comparable to the Tet Offensive during the Vietnam War, a succession of battles that became a milestone because it helped turn the American public against the conflict and its political leadership.
What the WaPo won't come right out and say is that it wasn't the Tet Offensive itself that had such a devastating effect upon civilian morale, it was the abjectly incompetent reporting of the event by American journalists.

To their credit, Washington Post reporters Michael A. Fletcher and Peter Baker do concede this much:

Historians consider Tet a military defeat for the Viet Cong because it lost so many men and captured no significant objectives. But it was also a powerful propaganda victory for the Viet Cong, because it brought the bloody war home to many Americans watching television.
"It" (the offensive) did not, by itself, constitute a "propaganda victory." It took inaccurate, hysterical, and sensationalistic reporting to "[bring] the bloody war home."

Tet ended the military effectiveness of the Viet Cong; they were never again able to field a force above company strength after their losses during the offensive. American media either never realized this, or simply ignored it, as they largely ignored the bloodbath that followed Congress' final betrayal of our allies, when funding to the Republic of Vietnam was cut off, and the South Vietnamese were left to face a massive, Soviet-backed invasion from the North. Their soldiers had three rounds apiece and medics were rewashing bandages for reuse.

In "The Myth of a Liberation", Truong Nhu Tang, former Justice Minister of the VC provisional government writes:

I asked the four-star general standing next to me where were the famous Viet Cong divisions 1, 5, 7, and 9. The general, Van Tien Dung, commander-in-chief of the North Vietnamese army, answered coldly that the armed forces were now “unified”. At that moment I began to understand my fate and that of the NLF [National Liberation Front - the political wing of the Viet Cong]. In Vietnam we often said: “Take the juice of the lemon and throw away the peel.” On that dais the years of communist promises and assurances revealed themselves for the propaganda they were. Victory Day celebrated no victory for the NLF, or for the South.
The refusal of the Vietnam era journalists to look back and admit that they were used as pawns by Ho Chi Minh has spawned a whole new generation of ignorance, eager to repeat their elders' mistakes in Iraq.

And that is how Vietnam and Iraq are alike, in the failures of the American mainstream media.

We're All Going To Die Update

FBI questions forum poster "javness" over dirty bomb threat.

Two points.

Just because this was a hoax by a Truther, doesn't mean Adnan El Shuckandjive isn't up to mischief in our country.

And I'll reitirate, it's not paranoia when they're really out to get you.

So keep your eyeballs peeled.

UPDATE by Rusty: Just in case you missed the update I posted today on the 9/11 Truther Behind NFL Dirty Bomb Scare, I'm posting this here. 'Javness' may not be the originator of the 'threat', after all.

We found an even earlier instance of the same "threat". It is from Oct. 3rd. It's at this website. The poster is listed simply as "Australia". The text is precisely the same as the one circulating in the media, for which the FBI is questioning 'javness' about right now, and which started the entire "scare". So, our original inclination to believe this has been circulating the web for some time seems to be correct. We have a screenshot, just in case the website goes down.

In any event, it is still a truther conspiracy nut that was behind it. Whether the person who started the rumor was 'javness' or not is unclear. What is clear is that it was 'javness' repost of the earlier threat on at least one other forum which started the uproar.

Man Convicted for Causing Mental Distress to Muslims

Full story here:

The words in bold red paint stated: "Kill all Muslims who threaten us and our way of life. Enoch Powell was right."

Father of two Gary John Mathewson, who was arrested for displaying the banner, told a court: "This won't stop until there is a Muslim president in the White House."

And referring to MP Jack Straw questioning whether Muslim women should wear face veils he asked: "Are you going to arrest him?"

When prosecutor Maggie Hughes pointed out that the banner did not mention extremists Mathewson said: "That's what I meant by those who threaten us and our way of life.'"

Dems Nominate Antisemite for Congress

I knew that Democratic candidate from Minnesota was a Muslim, but I didn't know he was that kind of Muslim. The kind that belongs to Louis Farrakhan's "Nation of Islam". The kind that even most Muslims think are a little kooky.

The New Media Journal also lists as part of Keith Ellison's qualifications for Congres:

▪ Has hidden behind at least three known aliases

▪ Who, while a law student, organized a speaking engagement at his school titled "Zionism: Imperialism, White Supremacy or Both?", and refused to listen to Jewish student's concerns over the program

▪ Has supported slavery reparations

▪ Has publicly supported one cop killer and another who attempted to kill a policeman

▪ Appeared on stage with a person who allegedly said "Jews are among the most racist white people I know."

▪ Is a ten year-long member of Louis Farrakhan's "Nation of Islam", and lied about it repeatedly

▪ Has taken campaign contributions from a man who has affirmed that he is "In support of the Hamas movement."

▪ Has been in trouble with the IRS for refusing to pay $25,000 in income taxes

▪ Had his driver's license suspended for thousands of dollars in unpaid traffic fines

One 9/11 denyer and one anti-Semite. Nice party ya got there.

Roy Hallums Documentary Airs Saturday (Jawa on TV)

The DiscoveryTimes channel will air an hour long documentary on the hostage ordeal of Roy Hallums. As long time readers know, freeing Roy Hallums from terrorists in Iraq was our first "cause" after some members of his family contacted us about our initial post.

We did our best to help the Hallums family keep Roy's name in the headlines. We have long believed that the U.S. State Department's policy of keeping news about hostages quiet is a mistake. That policy may be approprate for Columbia or Nigeria, but it certainly has little application in Iraq where political pressure has been successfully used in the past to gain the freedom of hostages.

Roy Hallums was later rescued by U.S. soldiers.

The producers of the new documentary contacted us earlier this year and I signed some documents allowing them to use our website for research and for screenshots. I have not yet seen the video, so I do not know the extent to which The Jawa Report has been used.

Even if nothing from our website is used, we have been very proud to be involved in Roy's cause. Be sure to catch the documentary if you can. Here is a schedule of showtimes.

You can visit our Roy Hallums archives here. It's kind of a reverse history of Roy's ordeal and rescue, so start from the bottom and scroll up.

Rachael Corrie Makes Me Sad

Well, not really the woman herself, but this picture with her in it does:

rachel-corrie-flag-02.jpg

It's the kids surrounding Corrie that make me sad. Most of them probably didn't know what the hell they were doing there, or why, except that their parents told them to do it.

And saddest of all, because of people like Corrie, I have to work extra hard to teach my children that it's okay to kill the children in the picture, because, in time, if they don't, they will live under sharia law.

No, don't take that wrong, I'm not going to teach my kids to kill Muslims, but I am going to heartily encourage them to explore the virtues of defending their country by joining the military.

Which, in the current state of affairs, boils down to my kids facing off against these kids some day in armed conflict. I don't want my kids to kill these kids.

I don't like war. Since I first stuck my nose into war by reading a short biography of Custer in the 2nd grade, I've never liked war.

It's an irony in this day and age. People like me who truly hate war, but recognize it's necessary in order to secure our safety, are labeled warmongering bigots.

People like Corrie, who exhort the readily inflammable to jihad, and willingly participate in the indoctrination of their children, are lauded as peaceful, willowy butterflies who would never hurt another living thing.

Even as they destroy lives.

So Rachael Corrie, and others like her, make me sad. They only perpetuate the death and destruction.

ACLU Succeeding in Having Searches Banned at NFL Stadiums

It's a good thing that the Department of Homeland Security is skeptical about the threat to set off radiological "dirty bombs" in seven National Football League stadiums, because the American Civil Liberties Union is doing all it can to prevent anyone being searched at NFL stadiums anyway.

From an ACLU press release:

Tampa Buccaneers Fans Free from Mass Random Searches

TAMPA, FL -- The American Civil Liberties Union of Florida today announced that a federal judge has blocked mass pat-down searches at Buccaneer games, stating that the public “has a compelling interest in preserving the constitutional right to be free from unreasonable governmental intrusion.”

The court order follows a similar injunction issued by a state court judge in October of last year and prohibits mass random searches of Tampa Buccaneers patrons without individualized suspicion. In both rulings, the courts held that the Fourth Amendment protects Americans from unreasonable searches such as those being conducted at Raymond James Stadium, which is owned and operated by the Tampa Sports Authority.

“This case is important because it involves being forced to give up a very real liberty in the name of generalized fear,” said Rebecca Harrison Steele, Director of the ACLU of Florida’s West Central office. “The government does not have a blank check to suspend the constitutional rights of Americans. Across-the-board pat-downs are a violation of each and every person's rights, and we are happy that has been upheld by the court."

Via Stop the ACLU.

9/11 Truther Behind NFL Dirty Bomb Scare

UPDATE: 10/19. Hold the phone. We found an even earlier instance of the same "threat". It is from Oct. 3rd. It's at this website. The poster is listed simply as "Australia". The text is precisely the same as the one circulating in the media (cited below) and which started the entire "scare". So, our original inclination to believe this has been circulating the web for some time seems to be correct. We have a screenshot, just in case the website goes down.

In any event, it is still a truther conspiracy nut that was behind it.

--------------------

The Jawa Report can reveal the original dirty bomb threat against the NFL made by a 9/11 conspiracy 'truther'. Full text below.

The threat was made by a person calling themselves 'javness' on September 19th Oct. 12th (the thread was started on Sept 19th) at a now defunct website (cache here, backup screenshot here).

My original post about the NFL dirty bomb scare is here, but I decided to dedicate another one to the 'truther' angle since some on the Left are now 'questioning the timing'.
UPDATE: Surprise, Paul Begala questions the timing.

The threat comes in the middle of a thread titled "new attack on america be afraid" in which an al Qaeda warning about a dirty bomb attack to Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir is discussed. Various people discuss the possibility of U.S. involvement in "false flag" operations.

Then, 'javness' posts the following:

On Sunday, October 22nd, 2006, there will be seven "dirty" explosive devices detonated in seven different U.S. cities; Miami, New York City, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland. The death toll will approach 100,000 from the initial blasts and countless other fatalities will later occur as result from radioactive fallout.

The bombs themselves will be delivered via trucks. These trucks will pull up to stadiums hosting NFL games in each respective city. All stadiums to be targeted are open air arenas, excluding Atlanta's Georgia Dome, the only enclosed stadium to be hit. Due to the open air, the radiological fallout will destroy those not killed in the initial explosion. The explosions will be near simultaneous, with the cities specifically chosen in different time zones to allow for multiple attacks at the same time.

The 22nd of October will mark the final day of Ramadan as it would fall in Mecca. Al-Qaida will automatically be blamed for the attacks. Later, through Al-Jazeera, Osama bin Laden will issue a video message claiming responsibility for what he dubs "America's Hiroshima".

In the aftermath civil wars will erupt across the world, both in the Middle East and within the United States. Global economies will screech to a halt. General chaos will rule.

Thus, the 'threat' was actually a conspiracy nut who claims the U.S. government will be behind the dirty bomb plot and then lay the blame on al Qaeda. Al Qaeda will be more than willing to accept the blame.

As Ace would say, layers.

But for the truthers, this is just too much. They challenge 'javness' to cite sources. 'Javness' replies:

you already know too much
In another thread 'Javness' quips:
George Bush doesn't care about black people.
Layers

Even though the guy is clearly a Leftwing nut, somehow the Right and George Bush will be blamed. That's kind of a given.

Dirty Bomb Threat Against NFL Stadiums This Weekend: Original Threat Found? (UPDATED: Confirmed, we have original threatening post)

Over the last several months chatter coming from al Qaeda operatives have warned that Muslims should leave U.S. cities in advance of a dirty bomb attack which would be carried out by Adnan G. El Shukrijumah.

We have a copy of what may have been is the initial NFL theat below.

Now, a new warning that the specific target of the attack will be NFL football stadiums this weekend. The Department of Homeland Security has downplayed the veracity of the threat.

Chad at In The Bullpen has links to this Houston Chronicle story and commentary here.

Reports indicate that the threat was made on an Islamic website, but I am unaware of where the threat was posted. Who posted the threat and where it was posted would be a key issue here. There are literally thousands of Islamic websites in which all kinds of threats are made on a daily basis. But certain users are known to be connected, while most others seem to be teenage Muslims full of bluster and living out their snuff fantasies.

A source, using his handy "Combat Terrorism" toolbar, found this on a thread posted on a non-Islamic forum which has been taken offlline. It reads:

On Sunday, October 22nd, 2006, there will be seven "dirty" explosive devices detonated in seven different U.S. cities; Miami, New York City, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland. The death toll will approach 100,000 from the initial blasts and countless other fatalities will later occur as result from radioactive fallout.

The bombs themselves will be delivered via trucks. These trucks will pull up to stadiums hosting NFL games in each respective city. All stadiums to be targeted are open air arenas, excluding Atlanta's Georgia Dome, the only enclosed stadium to be hit. Due to the open air, the radiological fallout will destroy those not killed in the initial explosion. The explosions will be near simultaneous, with the cities specifically chosen in different time zones to allow for multiple attacks at the same time.

The 22nd of October will mark the final day of Ramadan as it would fall in Mecca. Al-Qaida will automatically be blamed for the attacks. Later, through Al-Jazeera, Osama bin Laden will issue a video message claiming responsibility for what he dubs "America's Hiroshima".

In the aftermath civil wars will erupt across the world, both in the Middle East and within the United States. Global economies will screech to a halt. General chaos will rule.

UPDATE: Confirmed. This is the original message.

The poster 'javness' does not say where he got the information, nor does it seem very reliable. This could be the initial 'threat', which was then recirculated on Islamic message boards, or it could be a reposting of a threat posted on Islamic bulletin boards at an earlier time. UPDATE: No, we have independent confirmation that this is the original source of the threat.

But, you'll note, that it is from a month ago. Since it names the exact same cities as those in the 'threat' being mentioned in press accounts today, it would seem that the 'threat' has been around for some time.

Also, the website seems to have been around for a long time---since 2003-- and now it's down. But it is not an Islamic website. Maybe the feds got wind of this and are now in the process of "deterring" a wannabe from making such threats in the future?

-----
EMBEDDED UPDATE: The Feds are saying it came on an English language website. The now defunct site where this was found? "The F*cked Society".

Also, it is in the middle of a "truther" thread which explains why the poster alludes to al Qaeda "claiming" they were behind the bombing. But we really know who did it, wink wink.

My guess is that it is being recycled around the sphere.

Another UPDATE: Allah took a screenshot of the now defunct website.

Change me back from the 'skeptical but worried' column to the 'dismissive and pissed that this was national news' column.

UPDATE AGAIN: Paul Begala questions the timing on CNN.

UPDATE: 10/19. Hold the phone. We found an even earlier instance of the same "threat". It is from Oct. 3rd. It's at this website. The poster is listed simply as "Australia". The text is precisely the same as the one circulating in the media (cited below) and which started the entire "scare". So, our original inclination to believe this has been circulating the web for some time seems to be correct. We have a screenshot, just in case the website goes down.

In any event, it is still a truther conspiracy nut that was behind it.

-----

The threat also comes on the heels of two similar threats from al Qaeda sources within Afghanistan through two seperate Pakistani media contacts. First, an al Qaeda contact told Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir that a nuclear dirty bomb attack was imminent. A second nuclear threat was phoned in to a former al Jazeera journalist, in Pakistan, Jamal Ismail. Some have implied from the threats that the attack would happen before the end of Ramadan, which is Monday night.

Both threats claimed that an American al Qaeda member, Adnan G. El Shukrijumah (pictured above), had already snuck over the Mexican border, and that the dirty bomb materials were in the U.S. waiting for detonation.

In both cases, I have downplayed the seriousness of the reports. In my mind, al Qaeda media whores can't stand to play second fiddle to the communists of North Korea or to the Shia terrorist state in Iran.

Except for one odd note, I might dismiss the threats out of hand. A Tom Clancy inspired fantasy (see, The Sum of All Fears) on the part of would-be jihadis.

A reader who lives near Austin believes she had an encounter with Adnan G. El Shukrijumah over the summer as he tried to rent an apartment from her. The person tried to pass himself off as a Mexican national, but the reader believes he was definitely not Mexican.

Alone, this means little, but last week the local SWAT team showed up at her office looking for Arabs who had tried to pass themselves off as Mexican nationals. Adnan G. El Shukrijumah is said to speak Spanish, has been spotted in Mexico and other Latin American and Caribbean

Further, both the Texans and the Cowboys have home games before the end of Ramadan on Monday night. Houston and Dallas are both within 4 hour drives from Austin.

The last threat specifically warned Muslims to leave New York.

Of the seven cities threatened, only New York has any overlap from the previous two threats. The Houston / Dallas connection is only via our reader who believes she spotted Adnan G. El Shukrijumah. Which, incidentally, she got the distinct vibe that he was casing the rental for its potential criminal use.

So, am I still dismissive of the various dirty bomb and nuclear threats? I think I've moved from dismissive to skeptical, and now to still skeptical with a hint of worry. Not necessarily by the NFL threat, but by the confluence of all the threats at once. Howie agrees that the dirty bomb threat is not too credible. After all, those making the NFL threats could have been inspired by those earlier threats--which may have had no basis in reality whatsoever. And if we have found the original threat, it seems much more fantasy than anything else. The poster 'javness' describes himself as....well, you really don't want to know, but think the bad gay in a very jeuvenile way.

But, again, I was a Boy Scout and our motto was "be prepared".

I'm sure others are covering this, including Chad at In The Bullpen, and I expect to update this post as it develops.

CBS:

A website is claiming that seven NFL football stadiums will be hit with radiological dirty bombs this weekend, but the government on Wednesday expressed doubts about the threat.

The threat, posted Oct. 12, was part of an ongoing Internet conversation titled "New Attack on America Be Afraid." It mentioned NFL stadiums in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland, where games are scheduled to be held this weekend.

The Homeland Security Department alerted authorities and stadium owners in those cities, as well as the NFL, of the web message but said the threat was being viewed "with strong skepticism." Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said there was no intelligence that indicated such an attack was imminent, and that the alert was "out of an abundance of caution."

"The department strongly encourages the public to continue to go about their plans, including attending events that involve large public gatherings such as football games," Knocke said.

The FBI also expressed doubt about the threat.

Gateway Pundit has more, including video of Adnan the dirty bomber.

Dirty Bomb Threat Against NFL Stadiums

UPDATE: False alarm. We have found the original threat and it is not credible. Original dirty bomb NFL threat here.
-------------------

ABCNEWS is reporting that a website often used by Islamic terrorists has posted a threat to Seven NFL stadiums this week. Personally this makes me a bit nervous about the Baseball games as well.

ABCNEWS:WASHINGTON Oct 18, 2006 (AP)— A Web site is claiming that seven NFL football stadiums will be hit with radiological dirty bombs this weekend, but the government on Wednesday expressed doubts about the threat.

The warning, posted Oct. 12, was part of an ongoing Internet conversation titled "New Attack on America Be Afraid." It mentioned NFL stadiums in New York, Miami, Atlanta, Seattle, Houston, Oakland and Cleveland, where games are scheduled for this weekend.

The Homeland Security Department alerted authorities and stadium owners in those cities, as well as the NFL, of the Web message but said the threat was being viewed "with strong skepticism." Homeland Security spokesman Russ Knocke said there was no intelligence that indicated such an attack was imminent, and that the alert was "out of an abundance of caution."

I agree it may not be credible but Rusty has been following these threats closely here and here. It may be more credible than we thought. However, I doubt the terrorists would telegraph the operation so. It does not help the chances of success much.

I want St. Louis to win both for my grandma and so they can get 3 games ahead of Detroit in the World Series and blow it. See it’s the Midwestern Curse. We can play ball it’s just very unlikely we can win the Big Game.

Susan Lindauer, Crazy Traitor?

Don’t miss Clint Taylor’s article on Susan Lindauer in The Spectator. The crazy stuff is kinda funny. But crazy or not treason is treason.

People betray their country for several different reasons, most commonly money or ideology. While many traitors live deeply troubled lives, and a touch of megalomania and messianic fervor often motivates them, none of the traitors I am familiar with have been certifiably crazy. Which makes sense, since an agent worth recruiting by a foreign power needs to be lucid enough to avoid detection, and stable enough to be entrusted with enough power or responsibility to betray. That is what makes the case of Susan Lindauer so unusual…

Lindauer worked for several Democratic lawmakers, including Representatives Zoe Lofgren and Peter DeFazio, and Senators Ron Wyden and Carol Moseley-Braun, and also wrote for Fortune and U.S. News & World Report. According to her indictment, Lindauer worked with Iraqi agents based in New York starting in 1999, and even met them in Manhattan on September 19, 2001. That's right: eight days after the atrocity of September 11, Lindauer was allegedly meeting with enemy intelligence agents somewhere near the ruins of the World Trade Center.

Clint, I don’t thing there should ever be an insanity defense for treason, just a hanging. Y’all will have to click to read the funny parts.

Will You Still Beat Me When I'm 64? Mills Claims McCartney Physically Abusive

paul-mccartney.jpgEx nude model and the former Mrs. Sir Paul McCartney, Heather Mills, now claims the vegan ex-Beatle superstar was 'physically violent' and that he had 'choked her' on at least one occasion because he was high.

That's the claim folks. Paul McCartney, wife-beater. Surreal. I'm not sure of the right word I'm looking for to describe this, but it means something like after modern.

Hey, even I need a break from Islamic snuff videos every once and awhile.

Anyway, this is the same Heather Mills McCartney that claimed these nude pics were 'not porn'. Heather Mills McCartney's porn erotic video? Not porn either.

Anyway, here's a little something from the divorce papers:

In Long Island in August 2003 the respondent asked the petitioner if he had been smoking marijuana. He became very angry, yelled at her, grabbed her neck and started choking her.
I'd pay to see that footage. A wasted ex-Beatle choking a wheelchair bound wife. Only, in my version, it would be Yoko Ono in the chair....

Question: Does McCartney's version of Hindu pacifism have a wife beating exception clause? Because if it does, I have a few soul searching friends who might be converted.

And this:

The petitioner grabbed the respondent by the neck and pushed her over a coffee table. He then went outside, and in his drunken state he fell down a hill, cutting his arm (which remains scarred to this day).
Mills also claims that while she was pregnant:
An argument ensued between them in the bathroom during which the petitioner became angry and pushed the respondent into the bath.
Nice. Man, I love the British tabloids. Parting shot:
That evening the respondent realised the marriage had irretrievably broken down and left, crawling on her hands and knees whilst dragging her wheelchair, crutches and basic personal possessions to the car.
It's karma, baby.

Insurgents Request Union Spackler

paperplateman.JPGThe Mujahadbeen Shura Council has released a new internet message. The Jawa Report has obtained a copy of the message. Howie doesn’t speak Arabic so my translation may be somewhat less than entirely accurate. But I did my best and that’s all anyone can expect, right?

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

O’ Allah, straighten up our aim and make us stand firm

All Praise and thanks are Allah’s, the Lord of all that exists. And peace be upon our prophet Muhammad, his family and companions in entirety.

I’m here to announce the creation of a new Islamic state within Iraq. The borders of which extend all the way to the four corners of this room.

But just effing look at me. This place is crawling with American and Iraqi troops, so much so that I have to hide my face for fear they will catch me.

And even more embarrassing we are so short on funds that our new camera guy had to tape a paper plate to my turban to hide my identity.

I ask you, is this any way to support the insurgency? We have been murdering people left and right and where is our support?

Also you promised to send Muhammad Abu-Spackler’s first born to fix this giant f&%$ing crack in the wall behind me.

I swear if you don’t send me some Dinars post haste I will go on strike and stop chopping off heads!

Jesus effing Christ! If the outside world sees me begging for money in this dump, I’ll never be able to strike fear into the hearts of the cross worshippers!

Get on the stick and whip out your pocketbooks or I’m going back to driving a cab in Bahgdad.

Allah is great,

“Honor, power and glory belong to Allah, to his messenger, and to the believers, but the hypocrites know not.”

The Elephant in the Room...

A British gay advocacy group recently noticed that there had been a sharp rise in the incidence of religiously-motivated violent attacks on gay Brits.

Problem is, the attacks were disproportionately coming from one minority religious group (I'll let you guess which one it was). As you may know, casting aspersions at a minority group is just not done in polite circles.

On the other hand, highlighting one's victimhood is the very essence of political advocacy.

What to do, what to do...

This particular advocacy group decided to go with the tried and true. They blamed it on the Christians.

Rove Confident GOP Will Retain House and Senate (Updated)

The Architect remains, to all outward appearances, serene and confident about the upcoming midterm elections. So confident, in fact, that the Washington Post described the attitude of Rove and President Bush as "inexplicably confident".

Rove explains that the weakness of Democrats on security issues will lead to their downfall at the ballot box. Money quote from the Washington Times:

"It is useful to remind people what [Democrats] said and what they do. I think they have given us here, especially in the last couple of weeks, a potent set of votes to talk about. You had 90 percent of House Democrats voting against the terrorist-surveillance program, nearly three-quarters of Senate Democrats and 80 percent of House Democrats voting against the terrorist-interrogation act. Something is fundamentally flawed."
But the Washington Post, and others, are wondering if Rove and Bush know something that the rest of us don't.

For instance, what if this story, or something almost as significant, like the capture or death of Zawahiri, is about to be confirmed?

Update: Maybe this is the answer. Jim Geraghty, who literally wrote the book, has serious doubts about the validity of recent polls:

Finally, King over with SCSU Scholars is looking at a poll that had Patty Wetterling up 48-40 over Michele Bachmann in the Minnesota's Sixth Congressional District Race. He notes that poll's sample was 58 percent women. It's not uncommon to have more women voters than men voters, but it's usually closer to 51-49. Also, in a district that supported Bush, 57 to 42 percent, the sample was Republican 30 percent, Democrat 34 percent, and Independent 23 percent.

That's the kind of poll that emits an odor.

Update II: From the comments at The Dread Pundit Bluto; why Dem control of the House would be a disaster, and why jihadis want so very much for it to happen:
We'll take the house, but it will be just this side of meaningless. The only satisfaction will be the hearings that will start. We spent 140 hours during Clinton checking into if they used the White House invitee list for fundraising, while less than 50 hours was spent on Halliburton. That will change.

Reaching Out to Secular Muslims in Indonesia

Pastor Stan McLaren, aka "Stan the Infidel" just attended the funeral of slain Christian minester Rev. Irianto Kongkoli. The Indonesian government now suspects that terrorists connected to Jemaah Islamiyah, and who were involved in the beheading of Christian schoolchildren nearby, were behind the assassination.

The question now is: will the government act?

Stan writes:

We just came back from Rev. Irianto's funeral. People are angry but still under control. Rumors are spreading that the bombs of recent days were let off by security to keep Christians (and Muslims) scared. If another Christian is killed, it might be the spark to start something. The Christians in Sulawesi are fed up but still acting responsibly. Lots of work is being done by the churches to make sure everyone is maintaining a cool head.

What I need to emphasize now and I need to clarify this, the conflict will erupt in Central Sulawesi only. Java, Sumatera and Kalimantan's Christians are practicing dhimmitude and are scared of the Muslim majority there. In eastern Indonesia, we are not.

In Central Sulawesi, the local Muslims and Bugis from South Sulawesi get along with Christians and vice-versa. They have had profitable trading and co-operation for years.

It's the Javanese migrants and militants from Java that are the troublemakers. If we could kick them all out and keep them out, then there would be no more problems. Same with the police and military from Java.....

I want to also emphasize that the two largest Muslim groups in Indonesia are condemning the assassination of Irianto and asking that when the culprits are caught, they be given the death sentence. Muslims asking that fellow Muslims to get the death sentence for a killing a Christian. Charles can post a pic of "pigs flying" on LGF.

I called one of my acquaintances in the group that called for the death sentence and he confirmed the statement. He said that these killers and militants like them are a threat not only to Christians but also to their form of moderate Islam. They get threats all the time from militants too, telling them they must change their way of thinking and accept Shariah.

He said that they and other moderate groups must band together with Christians, Buddhists and Hindus to fight against militancy. It seems as though they are finally going to act against the threat against their way of practicing Islam. There's even a musical fatwa against militants. Pop group Dewa, which is one of the top bands in Indonesia, is challenging the militants with a musical fatwa. Go [here to check them out] .

There are lots of pigs flying today. Better get an umbrella in case of pig turds dropping out of the sky.

Muslim Mob Attacks Journalist: Not Antisemitic Enough

Journalist advocates ties with Israel. Moderate Muslim country puts him on trial for sedition.....because having an embassy in Tel Aviv is, er, you know, treason. Not content, members of ruling party form mob and beat him to a pulp.

Religion of something something something........

JPOST:

A Muslim journalist facing charges of sedition for advocating ties with Israel was recently attacked and beaten by a crowd in Bangladesh that allegedly included leading officials of the country's ruling party, The Jerusalem Post has learned.

Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, editor of the Weekly Blitz newspaper, an English-language publication based in the Bangladeshi capital of Dhaka, was working in his office on October 5 when nearly 40 people stormed the premises.

The mob beat Choudhury, leaving him with a fractured ankle, and looted cash that was kept in the company safe. Choudhury was briefly hospitalized.

According to a statement appearing on the Web site of the Weekly Blitz, the attackers were led by Helal Khan, international affairs secretary of Jasas, and included Babul Ahmed, Jasas's secretary-general. Jasas is the cultural wing of the ruling Bangladeshi National Party (BNP).

During the assault, Ahmed is said to have shouted at Choudhury, labeling him an "agent of the Jews."

When Gay Terrorists Attack

Gay Terrorist Mike Rogers is at it again:

As this message is posted, I have apppeared on the Ed Schultz Show, a nationally syndicated radio program broadcast in more than 100 cities and on Sirius Satellite. On the show I have called on Senator Larry Craig to end his years of hypocrisy by leveling with Idahoans about who he really is. I am also calling upon several prominent Idaho social conservative leaders to ask them how they square their anti-gay positions with their support for this leader.
But Patterico notes that Craig denies the charge. And Rogers is using the old "anonymous source" dodge.

Photo of Rogers. WARNING: this man is as ugly as his soul, not for the squeamish.

Islamist Kidnappers Will Exchange Hostage for Apostate Muslim

Terrorists have offered to release an Italian hostage if a Christian convert in exile in Italy, Abdul Rahman, is returned to Afghanistan for execution. Rahman had been held in an Afghanistan jail for his crime of leaving Islam until Western pressure led to his release and he was granted assylum in Italy.

Under Islamic law apostasy is a capital offense.

Italian photojournalist Gabriele Torsello, nicknamed Kash, has been documenting the conflict between India and Pakistan in Kashmir for years. Torsello worked for the online magazine PeaceReporter. Gabrielle Torsello was kidnapped last Thursday by a group claiming to be part of the Taliban on a road in the Kandahar province.

Monsters and Critics:

The kidnappers of an Italian journalist have issued an ultimatum saying they will free their captive if Italy returns a converted Afghan Christian who sought asylum there, the journalist's employers said on Tuesday....

The kidnappers have demanded that Rahman be returned to Afghanistan by Sunday.

It is not clear what will become of Torsello if demands are not met. I'd say that the threat is suggestive of "Someone is going to die. Either the apostate, or the hostage."

We pray for his safety and quick return

Dirty Bomb Attack on U.S. Within the Week? UPDATE: "American Hiroshima"

UPDATE 10/18 17:00 CDT: NFL Stadiums threatened with dirty bomb attack this weekend. We believe we have found the initial threat. NFL threat does not seem credible. See here or go to MAIN PAGE for updates.

--------------------

The Taliban have issued another warning that Muslims should leave the U.S. immediately before a major attack is launched. The warning implies that the threat will be from a dirty bomb and that it will come before next Monday.

In September we brought you news of an al Qaeda threat to detonate a dirty bomb on U.S. soil. The threat was that Adnan El Shukrijumah (aka, Adnan Al-Shukri Jumaa) would carry out the attack. The whole blogosphere was abuzz about it, and one of our readers alerted us (and the FBI) that she had seen Adnan El Shukrijumah in Texas.

Personally, I never took the threat that seriously. But some of the other Jawa writers did. It looks like some law enforcement officials are taking the threat seriously, too. The same reader alerted us about this encounter with the local SWAT team last week. In my prolonged absence, I forgot to post about it.

I was greeted this morning at my office by a member of the local SWAT team.

They are looking for an Arab male, passing himself off as hispanic. Judging by the picture they showed me, this guy could definitely pass as Mexican.

This is getting rather strange.

Indeed it is. If you look at El Shukrijumah's picture above, it seems to me he might pass off as a Mexican national. You'll also remember that when the same reader had her initial strange encounter with the person who she believed was El Shukrijumah, that he tried to pass himself off as a Mexican national.

El Shukrijumah may have recently been spotted in Britain.

On top of that, Allahpundit has news of a second warning that an attack will come before the end of Ramadan. Just to keep you up to speed, Ramadan ends October 23. Less than a week 'til doomsday, I guess.

My spidey-senses tell me that the threat is just so much bluster. The media whores at al Qaeda central just hate being upstaged and out-nuked by the Ronery One.

But still, I was a Boy Scout, and 'tis better to be prepared than sorry. Be on the lookout for Arabs trying to pass themselves off as Mexicans. El Shukrijumah is believed to have spent some time in Latin America, so he may speak Spanish. He also went to school in Canada. So if a 'Mexican' orders a "Molsen, eh" .... better call the FBI.

UPDATE: And here is our friend Jeff Epstein's take in Canada Free Press on the same warnings above:

Final preparations have been made for the American Hiroshima, a major attack on the U. S.
And it looks like the version of the account quoted by Allahpundit, and which was the basis of the doomsday-within-a-week scenario, which makes it seem like the attack will come before the end of Ramadan, may have been misleading. Here are some quotes from the original conversation:

Our brothers are ready to attack inside America. We will breach their security again. There is no timeframe for our attack inside America; we can do it any time.

Q: What do you mean by another attack in America?

A: Yes a bigger attack than September 11th 2001. Brother Adnan [el Shukrijumah] will lead that attack, Inshallah......Bush is aware that brother Adnan has smuggled deadly materials inside America from the Mexican border. Bush is silent about him, because he doesn't want to panic his people. Sheikh Osama bin Laden has completed his cycle of warnings....

Q: But if you attack inside America again, then Muslims living in America will face lot of problems, why would you like to create new problems for your brothers and sisters?

A: Muslims should leave America. We cannot stop our attack just because of the American Muslims

So, maybe not next week, but soon.

And 30 seconds of a Google News search, and it turns out my Molsen joke may be both funny and true. Canada Free Press:

"Adnan El Shukrijumah possesses the uncanny abilities to blend into a crowd, to alter his looks, to assume a multitude of identities....He is the proverbial Mr. Cellophane. Few things about el Shukrijumah indicate his radical Islamic orientation. He is often clean-shaven and never wears a long shirt or chews a toothpick. He has been known to have a beer on occasion (like an average American Joe), to smoke an occasional Camel, and to carry rosary beads in his pocket." ...

He could pose as an Italian-American, a Mexican-American, a Canadian, a Saudi, a Jamaican and a Latino from Trinidad.

This lone wolf in sheep's clothing is a trained pilot, an expert in the intricate art of the dirty bomb, and if the FBI's got it right, he's coming soon to an American city near you.

This article was from 2 days ago.

Also, just a reminder, Adnan El Shukrijumah spent time in his childhood in Brooklyn and spent some time in college in Florida. He blends in easily.

UPDATE II: Ace has some other pictures of El Shukrijumah which might help spot him. Also, be sure to check out the 3 photos at the FBI's website.

A videotape that the prosecution presented to the judge shows Boghnat encouraging and directing rioters in Bil'in to throw large chunks of rock at Israeli vehicles in such a way as to cause maximum damage. The accused is heard shouting, "Throw, throw!" and later, "Throw towards the little window!"

Mujahadeen Shura Council Murders Iraqi Man on Video

howieassains1.JPGThe Jawa Report has obtained a copy of the video of the Salaafi-jihadi umbrella group The Mujahidin Shura Council murdering an Iraqi. They drop the pretense of any "trial" or questioning. This is pure cold blooded murder.

First, the camera follows the two killers as they arrive. The one in the black shirt points to a man. Other men scatter, and as soon as he is alone, the murderer lowers his pointing hand and raises his weapon.

The man tries to cover and protect himself but is shot. He falls to the ground screaming with his back to the killers. The murderer then steps up and fires three shots to the head and walks away adjusting his mask.

I have some frame grabs and I'm trying to upload the video on Google video. It may not last long there as it skirts the edges of Googles' policy.

The media committee presents: Assassinating one of the spies worked for the crusaders in Mosel

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

O' Allah, straighten up our aim and make us stand firm.

All praise and gratitude be to Allah.

These murderers must be found and stopped! This is the murder of an unarmed Iraqi civilian. No trial, no testimony, just pure murder. These men claim to be acting for Allah. It is claimed by many that it is against Islam to murder in cold blood with no trial. Apparently these men have not gotten the memo on that one.

The Video is too large to email. But I can send links by request. You do not have to be anyone special to get it. I do ask that if you are underage you do not request or view the video.

Update: Rusty and I both noticed that this man appears very similar to the man who murdered Russia's Diplomats. He dresses the same and has a simliar manner. This murder occured in Mosul so if I were Russian intelligence I'd try Mosul.

Update: Video added below the fold.

Same old banner of the murderers.

The killer picks his target by pointing. The mans companions move away.

He then shoots him once.

The man falls screaming for his life.

The murderer then shoots him three more times.

And then they briskly walk away.

You Tube Jihad Continues, Part of a Larger Problem

An editorial about the YouTube jihad. Interestingly enough, The Jawa Report was also once banned by Google News for alleged 'hate speech'. But, we kissed and made up and now we're a Google News source again.

Now we and other right-of-center Youtubers are being targetted by the same thin-skinned cyber-jihadis who believe that the best way to insulate political Islam from criticism is to shut people up.

As a long-time student of bureaucracy it is my inclination to believe that our original ban from Google News, the deeming of several of our spinoff websites by Blogger as "offensive" (Blogger is owned byGoogle) and the recent banning of several videos by Jawa contributors (The All Seeing Pirate Spielberg, Vinnie B. Demille, & the Dread Pundit Lucas) are rooted in the organizational routines of Google and YouTube.

These organizations allow users to decide what is offensive and what is not. Experience has shown that Muslims, as a group, have a much lower threshold for what is considered offensive and what is not. So, any news source, blog, or video that is even mildly critical of Islam is flagged as inappropriate.

To what extent this is an organized effort is unclear. Since The Jawa Report was once the victim of an orchestrated cyber-attack by Islamists in Turkey who found some of our more over-the-top satire unacceptable, it is not hard for us to believe that there is something more going on here.

Google and YouTube's sin is either that they follow the path of least resistance or of politically correct bias. It is possible that Google and YouTube simply ban anything because they just don't have the manpower to actually check the content of news sources, blogs, or videos. Thus, giving in to the online jihadis is just a matter of resource scarcity or of the lazy. I'm also a student of Office Space, so imagining workers at a corporation being lazy is not difficult.

A more cynical way to look at this is that they actually check the content of what is being complained about and they agree with the online jihadis: anything critical of Islam is offensive. That's also not too big of a stretch. Google's corporate offices are in the San Francisco Bay area. When you give hippies censorship power this is about what you'd expect to find.

Washington Times:

Previously, the Islamists' Internet jihad had targeted blogs compiled on Google News. After a few complaints, Google would inform bloggers that their site was considered offensive and wouldn't be listed on a search. The same thing has now carried over to YouTube. And guess who just bought YouTube? Google.

The war on terror is not just being fought on battlefields or within intelligence agencies. With the Internet, terrorists are able to attack us by cowing nervous Web site owners into submitting to their demands. When they can't scare Internet operators, they simply try to hack into a site and shut it down. As Mrs. Malkin rightly notes, in the case of YouTube, "instead of boycotting the site, we need to stay and fight." She has urged her readers to keep posting anti-Islamist videos to combat the terrorists' cyber-jihad.

Civil-liberties advocates are constantly warning about the dangers of censorship enacted by the government. What they have just as constantly overlooked is the very real danger of censorship enacted by private businesses fearful of Islamist rage. The only way to fight this assault on our freedoms is by not giving in as YouTube has.

Michelle Malkin has more, including news about the conservative YouTube group she helped organize.

How Move America Forward Lost My Support (Updated)

Reposted from The Dread Pundit Bluto

Last Saturday, I received an email from Joe Wierzbicki, who works for Move America Forward's ad agency and who wanted me to post about Fox's rejection of their recent anti-Clinton ad. While checking it out, I came across this appallingly ignorant spot they had produced about airport security. The spot defames TSA uniformed personnel, possibly to the point of libel.

I know more than a little bit about airport security. Following 9/11, being over the (arbitrary) age limit for military service, I was able to make a contribution wearing the uniform of my country in the brand new Transportation Security Administration. The salary was significantly less than what I had made in advertising, and the working conditions were not quite on a par with a 9 to 5 creative career (it would eventually cost me one of my knees as well, TSA has one of the highest injury rates in the Federal service).

But the rewards were outstanding; among them the opportunity to work side-by-side with a dedicated and professional group of people who had survived a hiring process that turned away 11 out of 12 applicants. The tragedy of the TSA is that the non-uniformed "Executive Service" managers put in charge of this group survived a hiring process that emphasized political favors, cronyism, and CYA abilities. These are the people who deserve to be lampooned by MAF, and, in fact, Wierzbicki claimed in an email to me that they were the targets of the spot.

Unfortunately, MAF chose to use a scattergun approach, when the precision of a sniper was required. Their video, which Wierzbicki says attacks TSA policy, portrays uniformed TSA folks as incompetent oafs. I pointed out to Wierzbicki that TSA screeners, no matter how long they have been on the job, are subject to daily testing while on x-ray duty, and must re-qualify every six months in a difficult process that evaluates every aspect of their training. Failure to re-qualify means termination. Joe had no reply to this. No one at Move America Forward could even be bothered to attempt to defend the video. In itself, that lack of response says quite a bit about the organization, none of it good.

I can't sit by and watch my former colleagues, dedicated patriots, be maligned by the ignorance of Move America Forward and whatever ad agency hacks produced this video. What's next for this group? If they disagree with policy in Iraq or Afghanistan will they produce a spot showing our soldiers as murderous oafs? Will they become upset with police policy somewhere and dump on the uniformed cops?

Until Move America Forward pulls this spot, they'll get no support from me.

Update: The Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler and DeMediacratic Nation agree.

Marvin adds his word.

An Attack On One Of Us Is An Attack On All Of Us

Baseless, unsubstantiated attacks will not go unanswered here. Not while I'm sucking oxygen, that is.

Our friend Rusty, well known for his intense dislike of the entire religion of Islam, is now calling for a boycott of Indonesia. One of the few Muslim nations that's a genuine liberal democracy, and he wants to boycott an entire country of 300 million people. His reasoning?

With friends like you, who needs enemas? Feel free to provide a link where Rusty claims an "intense dislike of the entire religion of Islam." Indonesia, a genuine liberal democracy? Really? Have you asked Hugh Hefner about that one? And does 50% of a true Liberal Democracy (proper grammar is your friend) advocate stoning to death for adulterers?

Well let's see: earlier this year, three Christians were convicted in court of masterminding a sectarian attack that saw over 200 muslims killed. Rusty presumes them innocent because, after all, they're Christians. Rusty also mentions that one of the Muslims implicated in the Bali massacre got off with a light sentence--but doesn't bother to mention that three other Muslims are all on Death Row right now in Indonesia for the Bali attacks.

First off, this is a total lie. Here is what Rusty said: "If these guys are guilty of involvement in a massacre that killed over 200--mostly women and children, let me volunteer my services for the firing squad."

Second, the boycott has nothing to do with the execution of these men. They were executed on September 21st. This boycott is being called for after the wanton murder of a Christian minister who was neither accused, nor convicted of anything. And it was Rusty's response to a Christian commenter, living in Indonesia. The commenter, Stan, advocated firebombing mosques in retaliation. If you bothered to read the post, which you didn't, because you've obviously stuck your head up Andrew Sullivan's ass, you would know this.

Rusty is going to have to provide more evidence of routine slaughter of Christians than he's given us. Otherwise all I see is an apparent double-standard: Christians presumed innocent, Muslims presumed guilty. And if that's not true, then what is the truth?

Gee, why don't you re-read the Indonesia category.

I ask again: why do all the people who mention that ONE of the Muslims accused of being part of the Bali attacks got off with a light sentence never bother to mention that THREE OTHER MUSLIMS got the death penalty and are awaiting execution even now in Indonesia?

They are mentioned on The Jawa Report. "The unbiased Reuters which, in the interest of fairness, lets the readers know that 3 Muslims are also about to be executed. Of course, these are the Bali bombers--completely unrelated to the ongoing clashes between Muslims and the Christian and Hindu minorities." See, Dean? Trying to morally equivocate Muslim vs. Dhimmi violence with the Bali bombings, well, it may work in Dean's World, but here, not so much. And yes, we have chronicled another flat out Esmay lie.

If they don't even bother mentioning it, it's hard not to conclude that they hold Muslims to different standards from Christians.

See above. And yes, we do hold different standards. Maybe you missed the memo, but not all Muslims are terrorists, but most terrorists are Muslims.

And please, please, show me the Christians who are calling for a global caliphate. Show me the Christians who are rioting over the Bible being trashed in Saudi Arabia. Show me the Christians who threaten a fellow Christian for converting to another religion. Tell me, Dean, did the Pope, or the Patriarchs, or the leaders of any Christian denomination call for the death of John Walker Lindh when it was discovered that he had converted to Islam? Can you say the same for Muslims who have converted to Christianity?

Sorry Rusty, I love ya, but you have to work a lot harder than you have so far to convince me that Indonesia's a hellhole where Christians are routinely slaughtered and Muslims routinely get away with murder.

Trust me, as one of Rusty's true friends, your love shall be forever unrequited.

The only way to answer this is....why don't you do us all a favor and move there. If you love the place so much, why don't you give us a first hand account of the Christian Paradise that is Indonesia.

Now, I have some questions for you, Dean.

Are you related to Scott Ritter?

Does your "moderate" Muslim co-blogger, Aziz Poonwalla still believe that Israel is developing a "genetic bomb" that only kills Arabs and not Jews? Does he still think that it's even plausible?

Does the fact that he buys the Lancet survey make you cringe?

Millions of Shi'a Muslims believe in taqiyyah, yet you don't. However, your "moderate" Muslim co-blogger is Shiite. Care to explain?

The most prominent Christian terrorist organization in the world is the Irish Republican Army. Please cite for me the Biblical quotes they use to justify their actions. Cherry pick at your will, but please back it up with actual cites.

Why is there only one link in your post, to Rusty's boycott post, and not one other to back up your claims?

Finally, why haven't you bothered to publish Al Brown's email? Which you begged to do?

Dem Dirty Tricks Squad Targets Able Danger Congressman


Curt Weldon (R-PA), the congressman who has waged a lonely battle to bring the Able Danger revelations to light, has been targeted by the George Soros-funded Democrat hit squad Citizens for Ethics and Responsibility in Washington. CREW was deeply involved in manipulating the Foley scandal, possibly to the point of altering an alleged Foley email.

Weldon has led a campaign to expose the persecution of former Able Danger personnel and the apparently successful coverup of the intelligence group's warnings, blocked by the Gorelick "wall," prior to the attack on the USS Cole and the 9/11 terror attack.

Now it appears that Weldon is paying the price for offending the Democratic establishment.

From the philly.com:

At an event earlier today at Philadelphia International Airport to discuss airport noise, Weldon said the investigation was politically motivated - blaming a complaint filed by Melanie Sloan, director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

"She is the only one I know of who went to the Justice Department and asked for an investigation," Weldon said. "I know that because I have her letter."

Quite obviously, the FBI investigation will continue through the election, just as CREW planned.

Muslim Teacher Axed

(Yorkshire, England) A 24-year-old female Muslim teacher at Headfield C of E Junior School, Aishah Azmi (pic), has been suspended from her position for refusing to take off her veil during lessons.

Students found it difficult to understand Miss Azmi without seeing her lips move. With the exception of the classroom while teaching, Miss Azmi was otherwise permitted to wear her veil throughout the school.

Even though the Muslim Council of Britain disagrees with her, Miss Azmi is to plead her case against the school system before an employment tribunal "in a fortnight."

Boycott Indonesia--Stop Murdering Christians Now!

Civil war is in the air in Indonesia. Christians are daily being slaughtered and the government does little to protect them.

Two of our longtime blog-friends, Stan the Infidel and Big White Infidel, are furious over the treatment of Christians in Indonesia. What the media paints as 'sectarian violence' is really Muslim persecution of Christian minorities.

Stan and Big White are headed to Rev. Irianto Kongkoli's funeral in Palu. Rev. Kongkoli was a Christian minister gunned down in public early this morning. This comes on the heels of a bombing on Saturday and after three Christians were executed for their alleged participation in sectarian violence. Violence that has largely targetted Christians and over which no Muslim has been prosecuted.

If their reaction is any gauge of Christian sentiment in Indonesia, then expect an escalation of the violence. Especially pay attention to Stan's extended comments here.

I would urge the Christians of Indonesia, and especially our friends Stan and Big White, towards self-restraint and non-violence. Not that I am a pacifist, I am not, but I am a realist. One should only fight battles if they can win. This is not a battle that can be won through violence.

There is something that you can do to show your solidarity with Indonesia's persecuted Christians. Boycott Indonesia.

Write your Congressman.

Write the Indonesian embassy or call (202) 775 - 5200

Write the consular section of the U.S. embassy, Jakarta.

Next time you're in WalMart, be sure to check that label. Don't buy Indonesian.

I fear that if the international community does not immediately and successfully pressure the Indonesian government to protect its Christian minorities with more than lip service, that serious violence and civil war will erupt. A war with only one possible outcome: increased persecution and the mass killings of Christians.

Indonesia is very sensitive to public criticisms. The government spends a lot of time engaged in propaganda intended to show that country as a shining example of what moderate Islam looks like. So, public pressure may just work in this instance.

Please do what you can to help.

Libs: 'Jihad Protected Free Speech'

At least these moonbats are being honest. They embrace calls to destroy the United States, murder her citizens, and kill her soldiers as the free exercise of speech and religion.

From the Washington Times:

Democratic strategist and former Michael Dukakis campaign manager Susan Estrich, and the former American Civil Liberties Union president in Massachusetts, Harvey Silvergate, recently joined the attorneys representing two alleged Boston al Qaeda funders.
Estrich (flattering picture here) and her co-conspirators don't mean just talking about jihad either. They want their clients to be free to actively support it through funding [emphasis added]:
In their motion, attorneys Mrs. Estrich, Malick Ghachem, Norman Zalkind and Elizabeth Lunt, argue that the defendants merely exercised their religious freedom and obligation to give "zakat" (Islamic charity).
Their motion cites Chapter 9, verse 60 of the Koran, which describes "those entitled to receive zakat." According to the definition of zakat in The Encyclopedia of Islam, "category 7" of eligible recipients are "volunteers engaged in jihad" for whom the zakat cover "living expenses and the expenses of their military service (animals, weapons)."
Oh, just to rub a little salt in, they also say that contributions to brave jihadi babyhunters should be tax exempt, as well.

On the seventh level of Hell, Vidkun Quisling is laughing at us.

Christian Ministers Murdered in Indonesia (UPDATE: WAR?)

Sulawesi is in Indonesia. You know, that moderate Muslim country.

What's scary is that Indonesia really is a moderate Islamic country. Only 10% of Indonesian Muslims support the murder of infidels through jihad. Of course, as Charles Johnson notes, that's only 18.7 million Indonesians that want you dead.

Antara News:

Reverend Irianto Kongkoli, secretary general of Central Sulawesi`s Christian church synod, was gunned down by an unidentified man here Monday morning, eyewitneses said.

Eyewitnesses said Irianto, the reverend, was shot when he was about to buy building materials in Sinar Sakti shop on Monginsidi street in Palu subdistrict at 8:15 a.m. local time.

"Suddenly a gunfire explosion was heard and the reverend collapsed with gunshot wound on his head" said a witness who spoke on the anonymity....

A female reverend Susinati Tinulele, 29, was also gunned down when she was delivering a sermon on July 18, 2006.

She died instantly after a number of masked gunmen burst into a church in Palu and shot at the Protestant reverend. Four teenage churchgoers were wounded in the shooting incident.

We'll continue to keep our infidel friends in Indonesia in our prayers.

UPDATE: Stan the Infidel leaves this in the comments. Since I know most don't bother with the comments, I'll put them up for all to read. Stan is a Christian minister who blogs from Indonesia:

My brother (Big White Infidel) has gone down to Palu already and I will join him tomorrow for the funeral. Rev. Irianto was a personal friend and we have helped with refugees from the area and ministering to those affected by the conflict.

Rev. Irianto was gunned down in public.

You see, the extra police and army sent to Central Sulawesi are there to make sure Christians don't misbehave, not stop Muslims from carrying out attacks ( bombing yesterday and murder today).

My brother and I also made a decision this morning. We will stay and fight against the Muslims if the conflict re-opens. The Lord has laid this upon both our hearts. This is our home now and we will defend our Christian brothers and sisters.

Sooner or later all of us will have to fight them. It is inevitable. For us, the battle is almost now. For you, it will be later on the streets of America and Canada and Europe.

And they are coming for you. I know they are coming for me. Jesus said so. He said that if they persecute Him, they will persecute us also. John 16:2 says "In fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God." And that's what the Koranimals think, they are pleasing Allah by killing kafirs...

And that article that Charles has isn't complete. 1 in 5 Indonesians supports Jemaah Islamiyah and almost 1 in 5 supports Abu Bakr Ba'asyir's Mujahidin Majelis Indonesia militants. That's a big double for the buck-toothed old gedeknepper (Danish for goatf-----). Boycott and condemn Indonesia.

Stan, has more in the comments. I pray that he can find alternatives to violence in the fight to protect Christians. I am not a pacifist, but a realist. If civil war should ensue, there would be mass slaughter and the Christian minority really has little chance of winning. I think the lessons of East Timor should be apparent here.

French Surrender in Afghanistan

French commandos ordered home because searching for bin Laden is just too dangerous. Ed sent the link along noting that it was the "least surprising headline ever".

I'd try to say something funny about it if I had either the time or inclination. The truth is that there is nothing funny about French cowardice when it affects our national security.

You lose 9 guys, and you pull out?

Lesson learned by terrorists: the West is weak.

Canada.com:

French special forces tracking Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan have been ordered home by President Jacques Chirac because of the "worsening security situation," Britain's Daily Telegraph newspaper reported yesterday.

The group of 200 elite soldiers have been in the war-torn country since 2003, where they have been assisting their U.S. counterparts in hunting the al-Qaeda leader and Taliban fighters around Spin Boldak, near the south-eastern border with Pakistan, and an area around Jalalabad, in the north-east.

Mr. Chirac's decision to send them was intended to reassure the U.S. that France was still a willing ally in fighting terrorism despite its stance against the U.S.-led offensive in Iraq. But, according to unnamed military sources cited in Le Journal du Dimanche, Mr. Chirac gave the go-ahead during a defence counsel meeting to pull the men out of the country by early 2007. According to the report, the troops were badly shaken by the recent death of nine members during a mission.

Oh, and it's chowdah, Frenchie! Chowdah!

Italian Journo Kidnapped in Afghanistan

(Kabul, Afghanistan) Italian photojournalist Gabriele Torsello, nicknamed Kash, has been documenting the conflict between India and Pakistan in Kashmir for years. Torsello (image) was kidnapped on Thursday.

From Xinhuanet.com:

Five gunmen seized Gabriele Torsello on the highway from the capital of Helmand province to neighboring Kandahar province, Pajhwok News Agency quoted traveling companion Gholam Mohammad as saying.
The kidnapping was confirmed by a spokesman in the office the Italian Ambassador to Afghanistan. Also, a call to Torsello's mobile phone was answered by a man who stated, "We are the Taliban and we have abducted the foreigner on charges of spying."

However, a Taliban spokesman denied involvement in the kidnapping, saying criminals committed it. Excuse me but based upon just general behavior, it's hard to tell the difference between Taliban and common thugs.

From another source today, the kidnappers are reported to have contacted an Italian aid agency and said that Torsello is fine and they would make their ransom demand soon.

It's noteworthy that the Taliban is able to access the media so swimmingly.

For all my life, I’ll feel it
I wish I’d never met you
You’ll make me sick again

Scalia Enters the Snakepit

On Sunday, Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia participated in a televised debate with American Civil Liberties Union head Nadine Strossen, before an audience of ACLU supporters.

From the Associated Press:

Scalia, a leading conservative voice on the high court, sparred in a one-hour televised debate with American Civil Liberties Union president Nadine Strossen. He said unelected judges have no place deciding politically charged questions when the Constitution is silent on those issues.

Arguing that liberal judges in the past improperly established new political rights such as abortion, Scalia warned, "Someday, you're going to get a very conservative Supreme Court and regret that approach."

"On controversial issues on stuff like homosexual rights, abortion, we debate with each other and persuade each other and vote on it either through representatives or a constitutional amendment," the Reagan appointee said.

Strossen countered by playing the race card:

Strossen countered that such a legal approach would have barred the landmark 1954 ruling in Brown v. Board of Education, a unanimous decision outlawing racial segregation in public schools.
Scalia turned the tables:
"The Constitution very clearly forbids discrimination on the basis of race," Scalia said in response to a question by moderator Pete Williams of NBC. "It doesn't seem to me to allow Michigan to say we think it's good to discriminate on the basis of race when you want to make sure everyone is exposed to different backgrounds. We cannot use race as the test of diversity."
This dealt neatly with Strossen's argument, while pointing out that racial discrimination is fine with her, so long as it's a form of which she approves.

Imperium - a Novel of Ancient Rome

"Imperium, a Novel of Ancient Rome" by Robert Harris, Simon & Schuster.

I love this genre; the well-researched, authoritative historical novel. Robert Harris has done a wonderful job of bringing the waning days of the Roman Republic to life, as seen through the eyes of Tiro, personal secretary, confidante...and slave... of Marcus Tullius Cicero, one of the greatest orators in history.

This account of the rise of Cicero, the first installment of a trilogy, follows Cicero's career from newly elected senator to the ultimate elective power of the Roman republic wielded by the Roman consuls, "imperium". The politicking that propels Cicero from lawyer to consul; populism, dirty tricks, publicity stunts, dark bargains with unsavory operatives, and realpolitik compromises; could characterize many present day political figures. This is fascinating stuff, conveyed with a steady hand and an excellent feel for drama and suspense by Harris, who specializes in "docu-novels" of ancient Rome.

Unfortunately, it appears that Harris made his own compromise with the publisher's marketing department. In fact, this is how I came to review the book. Simon & Schuster asked several political bloggers to read and review it for its advertised relevance to today's political world. It does have relevance on the strength of the descriptions of Roman politics, which are certainly similar, in a general way, to modern politics. But trying to imply direct connections between current events and Roman history is a bit of a stretch.

Using Harris' own technique of inferring unknown details from known outcomes, one can almost hear the voices at the marketing brainstorm session: "If we get the author to punch up the connection between the pirates and today's terrorists we'll give the book appeal outside the historical novel genre; security moms, pundits, political junkies..."

Alas, the pirates who plagued Rome were not "terrorists" in the Islamist mold (they were motivated by booty, and wiped out by the Romans in 43 days) and the Roman general Pompey was not an earlier version of George W. Bush. Overreaching for one-to-one allegory, Harris puts these words in Pompey's mouth (page 172) [emphasis added]: "All captured pirates are to be handed over to Roman jurisdiction. Any ruler who refuses to cooperate will be regarded as Rome's enemy. Those who are not with us are against us."

Grit your teeth and read through it. It's a small wart on an otherwise well written and highly entertaining work. I look forward to the next installment in the trilogy.

What a Difference a Party Makes - Democrat Sexual Predator Dies

From MSNBC (Studds' party affiliation mentioned only in reference to Mark Foley in this story):

First openly gay person elected to Congress dies
BOSTON - Former U.S. Rep. Gerry Studds, the first openly gay person elected to Congress, died early Saturday at Boston Medical Center, several days after he collapsed while walking his dog, his husband said.
Down below the fold, MSNBC acknowledges the sex scandal that caused Congress to censure Studds:
In 1983, Studds acknowledged his homosexuality after the page revealed he’d had a relationship with Studds a decade earlier, when the page was 17. Studds was censured for sexual misconduct by the House, then went home to his constituents to answer questions in a series of public meetings and interviews with the press.
But it's okay that Studds used his position to sexually exploit an underage page because:
Hara [Studds' "spouse" - under Mass. gay marriage law] said Studds was never ashamed of the relationship with the page.

“This young man knew what he was doing,” Hara said. “He was at (Studds’) side.”

Contrast this gentle treatment of sexual exploitation with ABC's Brian Ross' obfuscation of the true age of the 18 year old former page who engaged in a salacious Instant Messenger exchange with Republican Congressman Mark Foley - an exchange that it was later revealed may have been a prank.

Update: More blog reaction

The News Buckit notes the standing ovation Studds received from his constituents following the censure vote.

James Joyner at Outside the Beltway wryly reminds us that Studds became openly gay only after being outed in the page scandal.

Wizbang! puts a point on it: "Unlike Mark Foley, Studds actually had sex with male pages."

Leaving Iraq. The Tulip or the Star?

I was unable to post this earlier for some reason, so am trying again. The basic situation here is that, like Rusty, I'm not sure what comes next. Rusty asks:

So, is leaving the answer? Or is there something else we should be doing?

Possibly both?

I think we have to leave for two reasons. One is that we ultimately have to draw-down until we disappear, so that the credit and legitimacy associated with victory over the Islamofascist insurgency in Iraq accrues to the new government. They need it, just as all newly formed governments need legitimacy. The other reason is that we now have other materializing challenges.

Note: I'm assuming that far from the MSM's conclusion that we're losing and that Iraq is a quagmire, we've essentially won. Barring some miracle the Sunni version of Islamofascism will be ejected, eventually. They're at a strategic disadvantage, and judging from their own communiques they know it.

But that leaves us with a dilemma.

Since I'm a bicycle enthusiast I've chosen to illustrate the dilemma as analogous to Lance Armstrong's choice of whether, and how, to allow Marco Pantani the win on the Mont Ventoux stage of the Tour de France in 2002. Armstrong's "big idea" was that by making a magnanimous gesture he'd create a strategic ally in his overall effort to win the Tour. But it didn't work out that way. The problem was that he didn't pull up soon enough, so Pantani (and more importantly Pantani's fans) knew that the victory had been gifted. Had Armstrong been more clever he'd have made the arrangement far less obvious, and still have won Pantani as an ally.

So, borrowing from this analogy we need to leave early enough that any final victories won't be attributed to the US. That's the bitter pill we must swallow in service of a larger goal.

I think the best way for us to accomplish this tricky transition, without sacrificing our own reputation and appearing weak (which would help Islamofascist recruitment like nothing else), is to simply move on to another military mission, or at least clear the decks so that we can be ready should we need to act. We can rightly say that we didn't leave because we were defeated, but because we had pressing concerns somewhere else. The draw-down probably should be gradual, but still faster than would have seemed prudent a few months ago. Maybe the Baker Commission will give us some cover?

And where should the next engagement be? The tulip or the star?

Tear it up.

Former American 'Hostage' Sentenced to Death in Iraq

An American citizens implicated in the hostage taking of three Romanian journalists has been sentenced to death in Iraq. You will recall that The Jawa Report was the first American media outlet to announce that Muhammed Munaff had been taken 'hostage' along with three others.

Later, with the help of a Romanian reader Adi, we learned that the whole hostage crisis had probably been an inside job. Thus, we were also the first American media outlet to raise questions over Munaff's involvement.

Another case of blogs getting the news first. The facts of the case are the stuff made for the movies.

Is he guilty? There is some pretty strong circumstantial evidence that Muhammed Munaf is, in fact, guilty of helping to kidnap Marie Jeanne Ion, Sorin Dumitru Miscoci, and Edward Ovidiu Ohanesian. The three Romanians were held hostage together with left-wing French journalist Florence Aubenas for a time.

The three Romanian and one French journalist were all later released, unharmed. There were rumors that ransom had been paid for all four of them.

It is thought that all of the kidnappings were part of an elaborate plot to both get ransom money and to revive the political career of a Syrian immigrant to Romania, Omar Hayssam, then in trouble with the Romanian authorities. One of the hostages, Marie-Jeanne Ion, was the daughter of an important ruling party leader. The speculation was that by winning the freedom of the hostages, he would be deemed a hero.

Mohammed Monaf and Omar Hayssam were indicted in Romania for the kidnappings, but Monaf has been held by the U.S. in Iraq since May of 2005. The arrest of a nine member criminal hostage-taking cell led authorities Iraq both finding the hostages and implicating Monaf and Hayssam.

Romania has insisted that Monaf receive the death penalty.

A big question mark, though, looms to just how involved Muhammed Munaff was in the plot. Even worse is that the Iraqi court system seems to be pretty dysfunctional. It's not exactly the best place to bring the truth to light.

As we cautioned in our earlier reports, conspiracy theories are the norm in the ex-Soviet states of Eastern Europe. Since much of the 'facts' of the conspiracy come from Romanian sources, it's difficult to sort them from fiction. In other words, it was never a slam dunk case against Monaf.

But, the U.S. thought the Iraqi born American citizen posed enough of a threat to hold him for the last year.

And, why is kidnapping a capital crime in Iraq?

AP with a hat tip to George:

Lawyers for an American citizen facing execution in Iraq appealed Friday in U.S. federal court to keep the man in American custody preventing his death while another case is being appealed.

The citizen, Mohammad Munaf, was convicted and sentenced to death by an Iraqi judge earlier this week on charges he helped in the 2005 kidnapping of three Romanian journalists in Baghdad, court papers show.

Iraqi-born Munaf, a naturalized U.S. citizen since 2000, was working as their translator and guide. He maintains his innocence.

In an emergency request filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Washington, Munaf's attorneys claim his rights to a fair trial in Iraq were violated when he was convicted without being able to present evidence in his defense — or to see the evidence against him.

The AP report seems to indicate that Monaf's death sentence was politically motivated. Strange indeed.

YouTube Jihad : Basic Training

Several people have been asking how to get started making videos and uploading them to YouTube.

There are a number of tutorials available explaining how to CREATE a video file using the Windows Movie Maker software that's most likely already installed on your computer. The following video is a fairly decent tutorial. It covers the basics fairly well. It won't be of much use to anyone who's already been through the process of creating a basic video using the Windows Movie Maker software.

Once you've created your video, you'll likely want to share it with the world. That will require that you upload it to the internet. The following video is a decent video tutorial on how to UPLOAD a video to YouTube. Again, this is just the basics. There's not much here for the experienced video masters.

Why Do We Pamper These People?

Well, this is good news, in a way....

ATLANTA (Reuters) - A U.S. citizen has pleaded guilty in federal court to providing material support to the militant Palestinian group Hamas, the Justice Department said on Friday.


Mohamed Shorbagi, 42, who served as imam at a mosque in Rome, Georgia, was charged in August with providing material support to a foreign terrorist organization, a charge that carries a maximum sentence of 15 years in prison.

"Shorbagi provided the support through donations to the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development knowing that some or all of the money was in fact destined for Hamas," a Justice Department statement said.

Shorbagi also "hosted high-level Hamas officials" at the mosque, it said.

It's great he was caught. It's great he's been convicted.

But is sending someone like this to a regular prison the answer?

How about stripping him of his citizenship, and dropping him off in whatever 3rd world 7th century hellhole he crawled out of.

Either that, or how about a Muslim-only supermax prison in, say, the far reaches of Alaska. Send them somewhere where they can't recruit (think Hosay Padeeya) and they can't escape.

Of course, the optimal solution is the simplest. Charge, try, and convict for the actual crime, treason, and get a rope.

Taliban Collects Ransom

(Kabul, Afghanistan) Two kidnapped Pakistani engineers were released yesterday by the Taliban after somebody paid ransom. It's anyone's guess who paid.

From PakTribune.com:

The two engineers, who were working for a road construction company, were freed after Taliban militants were paid a big ransom of 60,000 U.S. dollars, said Haji Aqha Lalei, head of the reconciliation commission in Kandahar.

He didn't say who had paid the ransom, but said local elders and government had negotiated with the militants for the hostages' release.

Apparently, there was a skirmish during the kidnapping on Sunday and two Taliban were killed. However, it didn't stop the abductions.

Personally, I sense a corrupt coziness between the government, the tribal elders and the Taliban in this incident and it's all about money. The quick business-like manner in which everything occurred suggests it was preplanned.

Tip: George R.

Ragnar's Magic 8-Ball Needs a Tune-Up

On Monday, I made a few predictions. How did the Magic 8 Ball perform? Let's see:

Prediction #1 : The next two days will bring more questions than answers as to whether the North Korean explosion was actually a nuclear detonation. By the end of this week, there will be some level of consensus one way or the other. If I were a betting man, I'd put my money on "not nuclear," but not a lot of money. I'm not sure if that makes me an optimist or a pessimist. I also predict that those who question whether the North Koreans are telling the truth will (ironically) be denounced as "commie apologists" or some such. If it was a fake, the rest of us can only ask : WTF??
Outcome: Partially correct. After a week of analysis, there appears to be consensus that there was nothing approaching a successful nuclear detonation by North Korea. We may not know for some time whether the small explosion was an unsuccessful attempt to set off a nuclear device or merely a hoax intended to make headlines. OTOH, I haven't yet heard anyone denounced as a "commie apologist." (Follow-up prediction: it was a hoax.)

MORE BELOW THE FOLD

Prediction #2 : Although the North Korean explosion will dominate the news for a few days, the next week will bring more Democrat-sourced revelations about what the House leadership knew about Mark Foley's habits in the 1995-2005 time frame. This will give the news media an excuse to move the Foley story back to the front pages, which is, of course, what they will do--particularly if the North Korean "nuclear" detonation turns out to have been a fake.
Outcome: WRONG-O! There have been no new revelations about Foleygate this week. As such, North Korea is still on the front pages. If the Dems have already launched their best stuff, they may regret the early timing of the Foley disclosures. The Harry Reid embarrassment may have ruined the Dems' appetite for "let's air out everyone's dirty laundry." Alternately, the Dems may still be holding back. Difficult to see. Always changing is the future.
Prediction #3 : The hit for Masturgate has mostly been taken by the GOP polling numbers. Further revelations about the leadership's earlier knowledge of Foley's behavior will have little additional effect on Republican numbers going forward UNLESS there is concrete evidence directly contradicting Hastert's declaration of innocence at his press conference last week. The public has gotten accustomed to politicians revising their stories a few times after a scandal breaks, but there's a limit. It essentially comes down to whether or not there's any concrete evidence that Hastert had knowledge of "vile" (i.e., sexually explicit) messages to underage pages prior to their recent publication. Only time will tell. I predict more uncomfortable revelations between now and next week, but no "smoking gun."
Outcome: Wrong (sort of). Given that there haven't been any new revelations this week, it's impossible to address what effect they may have had.

Jihadis Holding Hands Wearing Perfume

The Mujahideen Shura Council of Iraq released this video of their Bad Gay activities. The Jawa Report has obtained a copy. In the video they sit in a circle and repeat an oath. I’ve done some research and it seems this is may be an offshoot of ancient pagan rituals involving scented oils. Scented oils were once very valuable and highly prized in the Middle East.


I suspect they play circle jerk just after they dip their hands in the er uh liquid, but the video thankfully ends before the foreplay is over. I have the press release below and am seeking a translated transcript.

In the video the terrorists hope they stand firm, further confirmation of the bad gay activities that most likely follows the end of the tape. Add to that the fact that there is no goat in the in the video. Yup.

This seems to be a reaction to the recent reporting that over thirty Sunni leaders have committed to fighting al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Looks like al-Qaeda could only round up five.

Update: Pixi is doing some things so at the moment I can't post a pallete cleanser for you here. But I did put one here.

Video below the fold.


Update Garduneh Mehr knows a bit of Arabic and has a partial XLT of the tape. Thanks to Garduneh and my apologies for being so slow to move it up. See his approximate XLT below the fold.

In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful

O’ Allah, straighten up our aim and make us stand firm

Mujahideen Shura council of Iraq brings good news to the Muslim nation about the establishing of "Helf Al-Mutaybeen" (Perfumes Alliance), all praise and gratitude be to Allah.

Allah is great,

'' Honor, power and glory belong to Allah, to his messenger, and to the believers, but the hypocrites know not. ''

The Bad Gay Media Committee of Mujahedeen Shura council of Iraq

Garduneh's XLT

Hi Howie, Sorry about the delay. So, below is what I could glean from the video of the Jihadi circle jerk. [Pls remember I was never fluent in Arabic.] The first panel with ornate caligraphy quotes a verse from the Koran: the chapter is called El-Emran verses 103 and 104. The following panel reads like "Several Mujahedeen and Sheikhs of collaborating tribes in the scented clay tradition" [the circle jerk] Then of course a long rant praising Allah; and significantly he thanks Allah for "ties of friendship in the hearts of his followers". And if I'm not mistaken he makes a reference to the family of Mohammad. [As far as I know only Shiite's praise Mohammad's family. Later he refers to Ansar-as-Sunneh who are Sunni. Looks like whoever arranged the circle-jerk wants to unite these guys against the allies.] Then the narrator quotes an Islamic tradition Hadith of Qods: "A muslim who hides or covers up another Muslim, Allah will cover him up or hide him on the day of judgement."  [I suspect he's talking about the tribal Sheikhs present who give aid and shelter to the terrorists in Iraq.] The narrator then mentions Ansar-as-Suneh and the Army of as-Sabah cooperating against "crusaders". And finally he cites a statement made by their prophet about this same circle-jerk ritual; and they all take an oath together to fight against the "crusaders" not just in Iraq but everywhere until the Shariah of their pseudo-religion rules the world.

Al-Qaeda Seeking Nukes

In case you are wondering if the terrorists would use nukes if they had them.

IHT:CAIRO, Egypt An al-Qaida member who escaped from a U.S. prison in Afghanistan urged his followers in a new video aired Tuesday to acquire nuclear technology.

Abu Yahia al-Libi, who broke out of prison in July 2005, appeared in a video broadcast by the pan-Arab Al-Arabiya TV, telling his followers "to get prepared by starting with exercise ... then learn technology until you are capable of nuclear weapons," he said.

In the video, al-Libi, who appears to be talking to a group of fighters has a beard and is wearing a long gray robe. The video was the third reportedly featuring al-Libi since he escaped from prison.

Al-Arabiya showed two minutes of what it said was an hour-long video exclusively obtained by the satellite channel. It also showed footage of what appeared to be a group of Arab fighters training.
The answer is yes. One of the things about being a nuclear power is the realization that it carries a tremendous responsibility. The actual use is so horrible that the affect is mainly as a deterrent.

The Islamic terrorists have no such concerns about the effects or deterrent use. They would use a nuclear device on the west in a heartbeat.

It sounds like this may be the same or similar to the Video that the Site Institute has here.

Alas, Sad, Sad News

Cue the violins, fire up the hearse, pay the mourners.

From the Associated Press:

Air America Radio, a liberal talk and news radio network that features the comedian Al Franken, has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, a network official told The AP.

The network had denied rumors just a month ago that it would file for bankruptcy. On Friday, Air America spokeswoman Jaime Horn told The Associated Press that the filing became necessary only recently after negotiations with a creditor from the company's early days broke down.

Brit Coroner Wants US Soldiers Prosecuted in Journalist's Death

From Reuters:

OXFORD (Reuters) - One of Britain's most experienced journalists was unlawfully killed by U.S. soldiers in Iraq, a British inquest into his death ruled on Friday, prompting calls for the perpetrators to be tried for war crimes.
British assistant deputy coroner (Reuters names him "coroner", perhaps to exaggerate his standing and thus the authority of his words) Andrew Walker was unusually vocal in his condemnation of American soldiers and Marines after his inquest into the death of British journalist Terry Lloyd in March, 2003.
"He was fired on by American soldiers as a minibus carried wounded people away."

"I have no doubt it was an unlawful act of fire on the minibus."

"It was a despicable, deliberate, vengeful act."

But wait, this journalist was wandering around an active war zone during a massive invasion, and the Reuters account notes that he was not embedded with Coalition forces, as were virtually all other journalists covering the invasion at the time.

The assistant deputy coroner also fancies himself an expert in military tactics.

British General: Time to Leave Iraq

The top British General in Iraq says that it's about time to leave. Bush has always argued that he would leave such decisions to the commanders on the ground. While not one of our commanders, I trust that his opinion should be listened to.

His remarks are backed up by surprising survey results from Iraq that show that Iraqis are the most xenophobic people on the earth. Also from a letter from a Marine in Anbar who, while searching for foreign fighters, asked a local, "Have you seen any foreigners around here."

"Yes," says the Iraqi, "you."

NY Times:

In a surprising challenge to the government, Britain’s most senior military officer was quoted Friday as saying the British Army should leave Iraq, where it is America’s main ally, “sometime soon.”...

The Daily Mail quoted Sir Richard as saying that Britain should “get ourselves out sometime soon, because our presence exacerbates the security problems.”

“We are in a Muslim country, and Muslims’ views of foreigners in their country are quite clear,” he added. “As a foreigner, you can be welcomed by being invited into a country, but we weren’t invited, certainly by those in Iraq at the time. Let’s face it. The military campaign we fought in 2003 effectively kicked the door in.”

“I don’t say that the difficulties we are experiencing around the world are caused by our presence in Iraq, but undoubtedly our presence in Iraq exacerbates them,” he said, alluding to the question of whether Britain’s deployment in Iraq has made it a target for Islamic terrorism. Whatever consent British troops may have enjoyed after the invasion “has largely turned to intolerance,” he said.

So, is leaving the answer? Or is there something else we should be doing?

UPDATE: Are some of you retarded? I know you can read, but can you read past the headlines? How is this "jumping the shark"? Please read the last lines above. I ask "if this is the answer" and "is there something else we should be doing". I never say, "Yes, this General is right."

I'm also aware that the General has said that some of his statements were taken out of context.

Tyler Stanger and Cory Lidle

Yesterday's plane crash in New York City has saddened many people. Two remarkable lives were lost.

Tyler Stanger, 26, led a life of substance, purpose and responsibility. In addition to being a devoted husband, a doting family man and a successful businessman, Tyler was a former Eagle Scout and strong supporter of scouting. Tyler leaves a wife and two-year-old daughter.

Cory Lidle, 34, is best described as focused, perseverant and accomplished. Cory too was a devoted husband and family man and he succeeded in the world of every boy's dream, as a major league baseball player. Cory leaves a wife and six-year-old son.

Both men can be characterized as "All American" solid citizens. Both will be missed. Both will be remembered.

Condolences to the families and friends of Tyler Stanger and Cory Lidle.

More personally, Tyler Stanger was a friend of a long time supporter of The Jawa Report, who wishes to remain anonymous. But his friend has heard from the family that their only solace in this tragic loss is that Tyler died doing what he loved best.

Who Murdered Daniel Pearl?

Howiekhalid.jpgIt appears that by analyzing video of the murders hands it was determined that Khalid Sheikh Mohammad was the man who beheaded Pearle. Khalid Sheikh Mohammad also confessed to the brutal murder under interrogation and said he had to switch knives to remove his head because the first one became too dull to finish.

Time:Sheik never identified KSM as the actual killer, however. The FBI deduced KSM's role only after analyzing a video of the crime, in which only the perpetrator's hands are visible. That video was released by Islamic militants soon after Pearl's murder and then widely shown on Arab television and the Internet. Eventually, the FBI obtained its own version of the original video, as well as the camera used to photograph the murder.

Once KSM was taken into custody in March 2003, a comparison of the hands shown in the video and KSM's own hands, along with other evidence, confirmed the FBI's suspicions. Then, under interrogation, KSM confessed, national security officials told TIME, admitting without remorse that he personally severed Pearl ' s head and telling interrogators he had to switch knives after the first one, " got dull. "

KSM was interrogated in secret CIA prisons along with some three dozen other key captives, including alleged terrorists Ramzi Binalshibh and Abu Zubaydah, a close associate of Osama bin Laden. U.S. officials say all were questioned as part of a special CIA program that was in effect before Congress began legislating on interrogation policy, first last December and again in anew bill that President Bush is expected to sign soon. But with their actionable intelligence value largely exhausted in recent months — and the White House under political and legal pressure to alter the CIA's once-secret detention and interrogation system — all the captives have been shipped to Guantanamo or to third countries.

Religion of Beheading Priests Update

Oh of and crucifying children too. This is what terrorists are doing every day in the name of Allah and of Islam. This is not of God. This is the work of Satan.

AINA:
On Monday, October 9, a prominent Assyrian (also known as Chaldean and Syriac) priest, Fr. Paulos Iskander (Paul Alexander), was kidnapped by an unknown Islamic group. His ransom was posted at either $250,000 or $350,000. This group had demanded that signs be posted once again on his church apologizing for the Pope's remarks as a condition for negotiations to begin.

Father Alexander was beheaded on Wednesday.

An email from a priest in Sweden, Adris Hanna, describes the Muslim terror campaign against the Christians in Iraq:

The Syriac-Orhtodox priest Paulos Iskandar was kidnapped this Monday, October 9, and beheaded today Wednesday October 11.

The Bishop in Mosul wrote me an email tonight and told me that the funeral will be held in Mosul tomorrow.

Christians are living a terrified life in Mosul and Baghdad. Several priests have been kidnapped, girls are being raped and murdered and a couple of days ago a fourteen year old boy was crucified in the Christian neighborhood Albasra.

I have also spoken to a group of nuns that were robbed and treated brutally on their way between Baghdad to Amman in Jordan.

The murder of father Paulus is the final blow for Christians, and now only hell is expected for the Christians of Iraq.

We the oriental Christians in Sweden and the rest of the Western world must protest against the genocide. We must do what we can to stop the rape, threats, hatred, robberies, murders… We must do something.

USS Cole Sixth Anniversary

Jane at Armies of Liberation has a very good post marking this date.

At the time of the bombings, a Yemeni regime official advanced the theory that the United States had blown up the ship itself, as pretense for an invasion. This fear mongering has continued. “There was a plan to occupy Aden,” President Saleh said in a 2005 speech. According to President Saleh, eight U.S. warships waited at the mouth of the port of Aden, ready to invade in the days after the bombing. Only through his leadership abilities, he claimed, was the invasion averted.

In reality, all documentation indicates the Cole was traveling alone. In the days after the bombing, the crew of the Cole struggled unassisted to keep the ship afloat while the wounded were tended on deck. It is inconceivable that any U.S. ship in the area would not have come to their immediate aid.

Bhe sure to follwo the link as Jane links to Something and Half of Something who has pics and a triute to those sailors who died in the terrorists cowardly attack.

Pre-emptive Obedience

And why it’s wrong. Amir Taheri is running this article in Gulf News today.

In Communist-ruled East Germany, they had a term for it: pre-emptive obedience. This meant guessing the future orders of the politburo and obeying them before they were issued. East Germany was thrown into the dustbin of history a long time ago. However, "pre-emptive obedience" is making a comeback in re-unified Germany and several other European countries.

It was based on "pre-emptive obedience" that the German Opera in Berlin decided to cancel its production of Mozart's Idomeneo after the managers decided that it might anger Muslims. The opera had already been shown in 2003 without incident and no Muslim group had called for it to be withdrawn. Thus, the managers were obeying orders that had not been issued.

Amir goes on with several examples of self censorship and then makes his point rather well.
The party of "pre-emptive obedience" violates one of the basic principles of the western societies, that is to say freedom of expression. And, that makes it harder for Muslim democrats to persuade their co-religionists that, rather than fear freedom, they should learn to benefit from it.

The party of "pre-emptive obedience" hurts Muslim interests in another way. By presenting Muslims as agents of censorship and intolerance, it incites the non-Muslim majority against them while presenting the most reactionary fundamentalists as the sole legitimate representatives of Islam.

Self-censorship in Europe also provides the despotic regimes in Muslim countries with an excuse for their systematic violation of the right to free expression. While Muslim writers and artists are fighting and, in some cases, even dying to defend their freedom of creation it would be a sad irony to see that same freedom undermined by the party of "pre-emptive obedience" in the West.

Make sure to go read the rest of Amir’s article. Note that our co-blogger Bluto ,the worst person in the world, earned a quite different form of recognition for helping Phyllis out with her book.

Hat Tip: Phyllis who writes:

He mentions my inability to find a British publisher because, he says, publishers are rejecting scores of manuscripts “pre-emptively” in order to avoid “provoking” Muslim violence. He also mentions the cancellation of my colleague Nancy Kobrin’s book for which I wrote the introduction as yet another example of this unfortunate western self-censorship which he believes is, at heart, anti-Muslim. Hopefully, his piece will get picked up far and wide as his pieces usually do.
Agreed, We in the west make many mistakes and we have many shortcomings. But we attempt to face them with self criticism as well as being open to criticism. This is not to say we always behave our best but hopefully we learn a bit as we go along.

If say, Turkey can never face the truth of what happened there in the early part of the last century then Turkey is doomed to repeat this bloody episode. And then once again this Muslim nation will have to live in denial of the blood on it’s hands.

Brit Muslim Convert Confesses to Dirty Bomb, NYSE Plots (Updated)

An Indian-born, British convert to Islam pleaded guilty to plotting to blow up the New York Stock Exchange and set off a radioactive dirty bomb in the United Kingdom.

From Reuters:

LONDON (Reuters) - A Briton arrested amid a massive U.S. security alert two years ago admitted in a London court on Thursday to plotting to blow up financial targets in the United States and carry out "dirty bomb" attacks in Britain.

Dhiren Barot, a Muslim convert, admitted to plotting to blow up the headquarters of the New York Stock Exchange, International Monetary Fund, World Bank, Citigroup and Prudential in Washington, New Jersey and New York.

"Explosions at these premises were clearly designed to kill as many people as possible," said prosecuting lawyer Edmund Lawson.

At the time, Democrats didn't seem to be too happy with Barot's arrest:
Because three years had passed since Barot had visited his potential targets, and he was under tight British surveillance at the time, some Democrats accused the Republican-led administration of overstating the immediacy of the threat.
Perhaps that accounts for the deafening silence from US media today about Barot's confession.

Update: The terrorist is an author.

FACT: The fires burning in the building COULD NOT have been caused by the mere ignition of aircraft fuel. The plane in question was too small to carry enough feul to start such a large fire.

FACT: CIA/Mossad have been known to plant pyrotechnic devices in their past. Could they have planted firebombs in the precise apartment the plane hit? It seems likely.

The YouTube Jihad : It Really IS a Jihad, Folks

The Mudville Gazette summarizes an al Qaeda working paper summarizing a plan for an expanded English language propaganda effort:

Najd al-Rawi, the document's author, begins by noting that although they've been successful in many ways, the jihaddists haven't fully exploited the opportunities presented by the US media. Inspired by a video from bin Laden addressing the American people with subtitles in English, the author notes that "It seemed the Shayk wanted to send a clear message to his brother mujahadeen to pay more attention to this part of the mission." He points out that videos from the "Shayks of jihad" are in great demand in the western media. . . .

Suggested projects include English translations of the declarations of the Shayks of Jihad "to throw fear into the American people's hearts". Cited examples include "Sharia Rules regarding the use of WMDs" by Shayk Nasir al-Fahd, (probably a reference to a document with an English translation already available here) or "documentation of Mujahadeen acts against the U.S., such as 'Documentation of the Destruction that Befell America' by Shayk Abd-al-Aziz al-Jarbu", (a non-al Qaeda sponsored translation may be underway here) along with "other pieces the brothers deem worthy."

As an example of the sort of video material the group should provide, the author suggests "Video of attacks on US foot patrols with the caption 'Operation against the sons of the US people whom Bush cast into the fire of war against the Muslims'."

What this means is: the online jihad is only beginning. We can expect to see new and more effective forms of Islamist propaganda. The hard-edged propaganda is good for rallying and inspiring their troops, but they already have that out there in droves. YouTube and other video hosting networks are infested with the stuff. I anticipate we'll see more of the Qana-style "softer" propaganda designed to evoke sympathy with the "victims" of "Western imperialism."

I don't care much about the hard-edged stuff. They can spread that all they want, as far I'm concerned. In fact, we at Jawa Report even help them on occasion. That hardcore jihadi shit scares the bejeezus out of normal, rational people, and rightly so. Fear can be a good thing, so long as it's the kind of fear that makes you want to get out of your seat and do something and not the kind of fear that makes you want to bow toward Mecca.

I say it's the "softcore" propaganda that we need to be concerned about. Islamicist music videos, cartoons, shahid emo-porn, etc. will become more prevalent with time, and that's the stuff that has a potential to have an effect. This is a multi-front war, and success in the propaganda war is, as always, going to be crucial to victory in the war as a whole. For decades we've been losing the propaganda war--mostly because we refused to accept that we were even in one. Our enemies are today reaping the fruit of our earlier propaganda failures. With a effort, we can uproot the noxious weeds that bear this nasty fruit. All it takes is the will to do it.

Cube Worshippers Offended By Cube

20061010AppleMecca-s.jpgThey claim they don’t worship Idols. But replicate their cube and they get all hissy about it.

Mermi:On October 10, 2006, an Islamic website posted a message alerting Muslims to what it claims is a new insult to Islam. According to the message, the cube-shaped building which is being constructed in New York City, on Fifth Avenue between 58th and 59th Streets in midtown Manhattan, is clearly meant to provoke Muslims. The fact that the building resembles the Ka’ba, is called “Apple Mecca,” is intended to be open 24 hours a day like the Ka’ba, and moreover, contains bars selling alcoholic beverages, constitutes a blatant insult to Islam. The message urges Muslims to spread this alert, in hope that “Muslims will be able to stop the project.”
More here from The Register:
Well, it resembles the Muslims' sacred Ka'ba, situated in the Masjid al-Haram mosque in Mecca:

The "Islamic website" claims that since the offending structure is known as the "Apple Mecca", and "contains bars selling alcoholic beverages", it constitutes "a blatant insult to Islam". The site accordingly calls on Muslims to spread the word in the hope that "Muslims will be able to stop the project".

Some witnesses say the aircraft was a small plane, some say it was a helicopter.

NORAD says fighters have been launched over several U.S. cities. FAA says aircraft was "fixed-wing." Officials say aircraft took a hard 90 degree turn before hitting the building. The aircraft had no communications with Air Traffic contolllers.

Fire Department officials say penetration into the building by the aircraft was not significant. Fire was fought in a "routine" manner.

Update FOX News reports that Yankees' pitcher Cory Lidle piloted the plane and is dead. Sad news, our condolences go out to his family and friends.

Harry Reid Hangs Up on Reporter Questioning $1 Million Land Deal

From the Associated Press:

Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.
In the process, Reid did not disclose to Congress an earlier sale in which he transferred his land to a company created by a friend and took a financial stake in that company, according to records and interviews.
I wonder what possessed AP to dig up dirt on a Democrat? Apparently, Harry Reid wondered the same thing [emphasis added]:
The complex dealings allowed Reid to transfer ownership, legal liability and some tax consequences to Brown's company without public knowledge, but still collect a seven-figure payoff nearly three years later.

Reid hung up the phone when questioned about the deal during an AP interview last week.

Let's see how prominently this is mentioned, if at all, in the rest of the Mainstream Media.

Nato Confronts Pakistan Over Taliban

Good news that NATO member Canada is growing weary of Pakistans non support non do anything approach to the Taliban bases in Waziristan.

CTV: As the body of the 40th Canadian soldier to die in Afghanistan returned home Monday, NATO turned its attention to Pakistan and its alleged role in aiding the Taliban.

Trooper Mark Wilson, a 39-year-old with the Petawawa-based Royal Canadian Dragoons, died in a roadside bomb attack on Saturday. Wilson is the third soldier killed in the small reconnaissance unit in just one week.

In light of the Taliban resurgence, NATO's top commander in Afghanistan, Gen. David Richards, flew to Pakistan on Monday for high-level meetings with officials.
NATO and many Afghans blame the Taliban's revival on Pakistani influences along the shared western border.

The city of Quetta, Pakistan, has been identified by NATO intelligence as a Taliban hideout supported by the Pakistani Intelligence Service. That city is where Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, al Qaeda's chief planner of the 9/11 attacks, was arrested in 2003.

The evidence is said to include satellite pictures and video of training camps -- even the address where Taliban leader Mullah Omar is believed to be living.
Pakistan denies the accusations, but a Taliban leader seeking amnesty from the Afghanistan government told CTV's Paul Workman a different story.

Prior to seeking amnesty, Mullah Zakir Akhound said he was a deputy commander of 500 fighters. Akhound said he recently came back from Pakistan where he'd been living under the patronage and protection of the Pakistani Intelligence Service.

"I know the location of many Taliban safe houses," said Akhound. "They provide houses, food, motorcycles, telephones, so of course the Taliban is getting stronger."

I watched the Fontline episode on the Taliban a couple weeks ago. The Pakistan had made a deal with the Taliban that they promptly broke. But Pakistan sent a general to a large Taliban gathering to celebrate the agreement. My thought was now this is an excellent time to drop some large bombs. One Paki general for hundreds if not closer to 1000 Taliban fighting men? Sounds like a good deal to me.

Nato and coalition forces are going to have to go in there over Pakistan’s objections. The safe haven costs too many lives. Maybe not invade the area per se but we need to take action like bombing their gatherings and safe areas to stem the flow of fighters into Afghanistan.

It’s not too hard to see these people need killing it’s just the doing of it that we need to get on with.

American Youth Reportedly Kidnapped

The terrorist group Ansar al-Sunnah is claiming responsibility for the kidnapping.

Ynet: Palestinian security officials are verifying claims made by an extremist Islamic group that it kidnapped an American youth in the West Bank city of Nablus, officials said Wednesday.

A fax sent to the Reuters news agency by Ansar A-Sunna, a group affiliated with al-Qaeda in Iraq, shows a copy of an American citizens' passport and a copy of his entry visa to Israel.

Palestinian security officials said all terror groups contacted over the claim denied involvement.

Rabi'a Abu Layl, a senior activist with the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades, told Ynet: "Not only we have no contact with them, but we condemn the incident. If this youth was kidnapped in Nablus itself, then the issue is serious since foreign teenagers staying here despite the situation are usually volunteers who come to help us on humanitarian missions."

Yes, it usually is those least deserving of being abused that the terrorists choose, those who work hard to help the Palestinians and Muslims. The terrorists have an interest in targeting those people lest the illusion that we are the Great Satan be shattered. It’s also a way to get the most sympathy and therefore a better chance of making some cash for bomb belts.

We pray for and demand this innocent non-combatants's immediate release.

Hat Tip: Tim at Opinion Bug.

Update. The victim one Michael Leighton Phillips, 24 has been released.

Jpost:An American teacher was freed late Wednesday after being held for a day by Palestinians. He appeared to be unharmed.

Michael Leighton Phillips, 24, was brought to security headquarters in Nablus, where he was joined by a former mayor, Ghassan Shakaa, and a security chief, both members of the moderate Fatah movement.

WaPo: Democrats, Media Knew About Foley Emails For Months

Hate to keep flogging this retarded horse, but this is an important developement. The major newspaper blackout on the Democrats' knowledge of the Foley situation has been broken.

AJ Strata has the scoop, and asks:

What other evidence do we need other than the admissions by Harpers and the WaPo that they dealt with democrat operatives and used democrat sources bent on impacting the coming elections?
The truth starts to emerge almost two weeks from day one. AJ thinks the WaPo is trying to get out ahead of some devastating news that may be coming soon. Pelosi's outrage brigade, Democrat operatives and their willing accomplices in the news media knew about Foley for a long time (as far back as November of last year) and did nothing (as was suspected). It doesn't exonerate Foley in the least, but it does implicate the Democrats quite directly.

Two Muslims Convicted in Terror Trial

Good news!

(Albany, New York) Despite claims of entrapment, two Muslim men affiliated with the Central Avenue Mosque, Yassin M. Aref and Mohammed M. Hossain, were convicted yesterday of dozens of terrorism-related charges in U.S. District Court. A jury deliberated for four days before handing down the verdict.

Aref, the local imam of the Central Avenue Mosque and a Kurdish refugee, was found guilty on 10 counts. Hossain, a 51-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant and pizza shop owner, was found guilty of 27 counts.

From TimesUnion.com:

Yassin M. Aref, the religious leader, and Mohammed M. Hossain are accused of taking part in a fictitious plot to help launder money from the sale of a shoulder-fired missile to terrorists plotting an attack in New York City.

Aref faced separate charges for allegedly lying on a green card application and while being interviewed by FBI agents about his ties to a Kurdish political party.

Attorneys for both men have stated their intentions to appeal. Sentencing is scheduled for February 12th. Meanwhile, I'll celebrate with a doughnut.

Arizona Memorial Commissioners Wanted to Honor 9/11 Hijackers

Hot Air's Allah Pundit has the video of a Fox News report in which it is revealed that several of the commissioners responsible for the disgraceful Arizona 9/11 (photos) "memorial" really wanted to express their hatred of America even more directly:

"Some members of the memorial committee actually wanted to add 19 more characters for the terrorists who crashed the planes."
This thought process is simply unfathomable to sane Americans, but it's common on the Left. Already, deranged liberal "netroots" types are hinting at dark conspiracies between the Bush administration and the North Korean dictator Kim Jong-il to bury Masturgate with a nuke crisis.

Arizona blogger Espresso Pundit was the first to bring this revolting travesty to national attention.

Ace of Spades has his flaming skull lit.

Emperor Darth Misha I of the Anti-Idiotarian Rottweiler suggests taking out the "memorial" with a tactical nuke.

Kos Kautiously Optimistic

Did anyone catch this post by Kos cautioning the salivating leftwingnut hordes not to start popping the champange just quite yet? He sounds less-than-thrilled with the momentum he no doubt thought the Donks would gain with Foleygate:

I'm getting a little nervous with people thinking we have any race this fall in the bag. While things look great for us right now, the election isn't right now. And if Republicans can do anything, it's close the deal. And quite frankly, we're not a sure thing anywhere.

We've got to pick up six seats for a majority, seven if we want to avoid a potential Lieberman blackmail situation (if he wins his race). We have to hold all of our own endangered seats (looking solid in MN, okay in MD, and iffy in NJ). Then, in the Republican-held competitive races left -- MO, MT, OH, PA, RI, TN, and VA -- all but one feature incumbents, always the hardest races to win. Incumbents rarely, rarely lose.

That's the blogosphere kingmaker speaking. Not exactly the triumphant warrior on a white horse you'd think he'd be at this point.

The TRUE "Nightmare" Scenario

I'm mad as hell at the GOP, and I have been for years. I've made no secret of my anger and disappointment with what is supposed to be the "conservative" party in this country working overtime to enact a comprehensive agenda of "socialism lite." I'm also quite disappointed in our party's dismal and hamfisted performance in the War Against Being Scared. (Then again, I've gone from being "concerned" in 2001 to "pissed off" in 2006, so perhaps there has been progress.)

Given my own feelings, I can certainly relate to other conservatives and libertarians who are frustrated by and disgusted with the Republican leadership. If I were represented by a RINO, or a member of the current House leadership, I'd probably have a very tough time getting motivated to help out. As it is, I'm fortunate to be represented by some true reformers, and they have my full backing. I don't have to hold my nose to back them, because I really couldn't ask for better representation. If I were living in Denny Hastert's district, or Tom Reynolds' district, I'm sure I'd have a tougher time mustering the energy to care about the fate of either. There is a point that you get to. I'm not there, but I can probably see it from here if I stand on my toes & squint.

Even as angry and frustrated as I am with the party leadership and the GOP as an organization, I'm still cognizant of the fact that there are solid conservatives within the party, and lots of them. I'm also cognizant of the fact that there are few, if any, among the elected Democrats who could even remotely be considered "conservatives." I'd love it if there were more libertarian-minded Republicans, but I suppose you go to war with the party you have, not the party you'd like to have. Given the choice between "crazy/evil" (i.e. Senator Palpatine,) and "stupid/corrupt" (ie., Senator Jar Jar,) I'd still go with the latter.

MORE BELOW THE FOLD

For my part, I'm not willing to attack those who've simply had enough with the GOP as a whole. I don't consider them "cowards," nor do I consider them "petulant crybabies," "naive bedwetters," or whatever. Funny how many people don't hesitate to launch a virtual attack over the internet that they'd never have the balls to do in real life. I think we could all do with a toning down of the rhetoric on this point, and I'd ask other bloggers to think twice before they launch nasty perjoratives at people who agree with them 99% of the time, but aren't 100% on board on this one issue.

For any of you who choose to "stand down" this election, I ask that you thoroughly satisfy yourself that you're fully prepared to face the consequences of Democrat control of the House and/or Senate for at least two years, and possibly more. Think carefully about what that would mean to our country. It probably wouldn't mean any crazy new legislation being signed into law. It might, in fact, mean the absence of any new legislation for a while. It could be complete gridlock in the middle of a significant troop deployment overseas. That could cause a mess.

While understanding the frustration, I'm not sure holding your nose and supporting the GOP this time around necessarily has to equate to a total capitulation to all the corruption and socialist bullshit we've been getting from the party for at least the last six years. For those of you who are, like me, beyond frustrated with the party, you do have the option of getting involved and beginning the slow process of working to change the party from the inside. No, it's not easy, but it can be done.

Speaking of change, I've noticed that some of the party operatives read this blog, and to you I have a suggestion: fear of the Democrats keeps some of the conservatives and libertarians in line, but the most frustrated conservatives and libertarians may not step back into rank without a little lovin' from the party. A message of contrition and a demonstration of commitment to core principles on the part of the party leadership might go a long way toward rebuilding solidarity.

Finally, we've all heard some nightmare scenarios being trotted out, and they're very scary, to be sure. The Dems could certainly cause a lot of noise and trouble given two years in control of even one house of Congress, much less both houses. The worst case scenario would not, however, be for the Democrats to take over and do all the crazy things we're all afraid they might do. Although that would please the Deaniacs and Kossacks to no end, going into full Cynthia McKinney-style "crazy mode" would set the Dems up for political disaster in 2008 at nearly all levels, and virtually guarantee a Republican White House next time around. It would be much worse, in the long term, for the Dems to spend two years legislating with a generally centrist agenda, biding their time, avoiding the real hot-button issues, siding with Bush on some "comprehensive immigration reform" package, etc. etc. That would set them up for further electoral gains in 2008 and a White House win. That, IMHO, is the true "nightmare" scenario, and it's a good bit scarier than any of the other nightmare scenarios being bandied about these days.

"Good Cop, Bad Cop"

I'm glad to see some support for Jack Straw across the pond in the face of this latest round of Muslim extortion. Me, I've never cared much for extortion.

We see this extortion racket played out over and over again. Something happens to rile up the "Muslim community." The local Muslim leader, Imam X, may be a bad actor, but he's our guy. He pays lip service to "interfaith dialogue" and whatnot, but he's not really on our side, and he doesn't have our best interests at heart. He's in it for himself, and we all know it. On the other hand, he needs our support to have legitimacy, and his need for our support gives us a certain (though limited) level of influence on his behavior.

We're not particularly thrilled with Imam X, but Imam X assures us that he's the best option we can reasonably expect to get. Imam X has a maniac on a leash, and if anything happens to Imam X, we'll be left to deal with the maniac. Our options are between Imam X and a maniac. Any other leader would be unapologetically acting against our interests. Imam X at least pays lip service to our concerns, and throws us a bone now and then. (Something like the House Republican leadership, but even worse.)

At every turn, Imam X gives us just enough to keep us from completely bailing out on him, but he realizes that the price of our support isn't that high, owing to the fact that we know the alternatives to Imam X are so much worse. We're expected to be grateful for his token efforts, and to happily accept the table scraps he drops to us now and then. In sum, Imam X has us by the "short hairs," and he knows it. He can count on our unwavering support so long as he knows that we're unwilling to plunge his little neighborhood into chaos. Imam X can count on the fact that we're rational actors and his conviction that we'll always accept half a loaf from him in lieu of none. In the short term, capitulation is almost always the rational decision on our part. Accordingly, whatever concerns Imam X may have, the loss of our support isn't high on the list of things that keep him up at night.

Of course, this situation isn't limited to a few Imams in London. From where I sit, the whole lot of self-proclaimed "moderate" Muslim activists, along with our "friends" in the House of Saud and our "friends" running Pakistan, are other examples of "Imam X's" in their respective spheres of influence.

It's just a form of extortion, a variation on the classic "Good Cop, Bad Cop" game and the "protection racket." It's a popular racket, mostly because it works so effectively.

The "moderate" Muslim activists in the West are the most distasteful of the lot, IMHO. At each stage, the game is: "accept this accomodation, or else we'll be replaced by crazies." At each round, the "this" is a little larger piece of flesh than last round. "Censor the Mohammed cartoons, or else." "Get rid of Ayaan Hirsi Ali, or else." "Make the Pope apologize, or else." "Institute Shari'a law, or else." At each step, accomodation is the short-term rational choice.

I wonder: is there a point at which we (the West) are no longer willing to play along with the "Good Cop, Bad Cop" game anymore? Is there a point at which we're willing, in the short term, to be irrational? In other words, is there a point at which we're no longer willing to negotiate over our fundamental principles, even if there is a significant price to pay? Is there a point at which we make our own demands? Is there a point at which we're no longer willing to accept half measures and lukewarm gestures from our supposed "allies?" Is there a point at which we will draw a line beyond which we are unwilling to go, to throw down the gauntlet and invite them to join us as we all descend together into the Hell and chaos that supposedly awaits us?

If there is such a point, where does it lie?

If we can never figure out when we've crossed that point, isn't our subjugation just a question of "when" rather than "if?"

Why I will Vote Democrat or Not Vote

I have decided to vote a straight Democratic ticket. Why? Because if I do, I will be sending a message to Republicans. That message is that I want Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as Speaker of the House.

Nancy Pelosi would be a much better Speaker of the House than that scoundrel Dennis Hastert (R-IL).

Here is what you will get if you vote, like me, for Democrats this fall.

nancy.pelosi.jpg

Nancy Pellosi is a member of the House who represents San Francisco, California. As a representative of that fair city, Speaker Pelosi would be much less tolerant of gay sexual deviants. Much less so than the current Speaker from the Illinois corn belt.

Here is Nancy Pelosi's American Conservative Union score.

2005 = 0
Life = 3

That's right, Nancy Pelosi scores a whopping ZERO score on the ACU scale. That's out of a possible score of 100. Oh, Dennis Hastert scored 100 in 1995. He has a lifetime score of 93.

How does she score on the National Journal's Liberal Score? These are different than the ACU's score. The rankings measure how liberal she is compared to other Congressman. In other words, a "90" means she is "more liberal than 90% of other Congresspeople" on that issue.

Composite (overall) 2005 = 90
Liberal on Social Policy 2005 = 96
Liberal on Foreign Policy 2005 = 82
Liberal on Economic Policy 2005 = 91

I, for one, welcome our new Democrat overlord!

Now, if you're a libertarian, like me, you'll also be happy to know that the new Speaker of the House scores a whopping 10% on the Liberty Index's support for economic liberty in 2005 scale.

The ACLU gives her a 100% score in 2004 & 2005. A victory for the GWOT!

The radical abortion rights advocacy group NARAL gave her a score of 100% from 2000 - 2003. National Right to Life 2000-2003, 2005. 0 every year. 2004, 13%. Pro-lifers, stay home!

The liberal advocacy group Americans for Democratic Action gave her a score of 95% in 2005. 100% from 2000 - 2004.

The U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation gave her a score of 64% in 2005. Jews, vote for Pelosi!

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce.....33%. Business owners, vote Democratic!

National Taxpayers Union gives her a 17% in 2004. The best way to lower taxes and fight for small government---the Democratic Party.

Family Research Council 0. That's right, zero. EVANGELICALS, DON'T VOTE.

League of Private Property Voters 2000 - 2004, zero. Every year.

And what better way for immigration reform advocates to send a message to the sole institution--the Republican House-- that stood in the way of President Bush, the entire Democratic Party, and a few Republicans in the Senate who favored granting amnesty to illegal aliens then electing Nancy Pelosi?

U.S. Border Control gives her a 0 score for both 2004 & 2005.

Nanci Pelosi as Speaker of the House. What could possibly go wrong?

Did Beloved Leader's Nuke Fizzle Out?

North Korea's nuke may have been a dud.

From the Washington Times:

U.S. intelligence agencies say, based on preliminary indications, that North Korea did not produce its first nuclear blast yesterday.

U.S. officials, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said that seismic readings show that the conventional high explosives used to create a chain reaction in a plutonium-based device went off, but that the blast's readings were shy of a typical nuclear detonation.

This would be a humiliating culmination for Kim Jong-il, which would make him even more intransigent and dangerous.

November Rain

I'm with AJ Strata and Macranger.

Yes - we're all getting fatigued defending and shallacking for the policies, both good and bad, of the current GOP juggernaut.

Yes - we're frustrated at the apparent lack of progress we read about and see on TV nightly, despite having a slim majority in both chambers.

Yes - we're growing impatient with many "leaders" within our ranks, and are anxious to get some new blood in there.

And yes - many of the most stallwart and widely-heard voices in the movement seem to be submitting to the pressure.

Your pain is felt and understood. Your complaints are valid and valuable. If you believe in these initiatives and policy preferences, then the power is in your hands to do something about it.

My decision in November will come easy and without regret - I'm not voting for a Democrat, and I'm holding my nose to vote GOP.

Need a brusque pep-talk? Keep reading.

The reasons for voting this fall? There are many.

Try these - a thoroughly disgraceful retreat from Iraq with terrorists slicing throats in celebration all over the ME. Higher taxes and more government intrusion into my wallet and yours. An open border with Mexico that will not only never be closed, but the criminals flooding across it will ensure the United States slides closer to third-world status than in the opposite direction - as one political party will attempt to make them its largest voting block. Senseless "impeachment" hearings for the only person in the world that seems to comprehend that we are fighting a war - a war the cowardly party "impeaching" him voted for and fought tooth-and-nail every step of the way afterwards for political expediency. A healthcare system that will collapse. A social welfare system already strained that will swirl closer to the flushhole of hell. Food police. The end of talk radio as you know it, as the Stalinist "Fairness Doctrine" will be implemented. Endless "investigations." Billions of wasted taxpayer dollars. The Clintonistas back in control. A return to the "Misery Index."

Should I go on? You've all no doubt heard the "If Pelosi and Co. win" schtick, so I'll spare you. The point is that these are all real and likely possibilities, readily admitted to by Democrats over the past year, that will come to pass. I could go on and on if I wanted to.

The only way to avoid this is to get out and vote and halt that encroachment on our lives and on the nation's long-term security. All of the incessant GOP-is-horrible bitching, whining, self-righteousness, sanctimony, good ideas, momentum, etc. is meaningless and irrelevant the second those in the movement submit to the flak thrown at them by the other team. And make no mistake - the other team wants nothing less that the GOP's complete and total destruction.

Duh. This is political warfare, and the conservative party has been targeted by sizable portion of the country for termination. Comfortable with that? I ain't. For those sitting out or voting Democrat, bring on the socialism. You must really want it.

For me, this is too critical a juncture in history to surrender to a group of traitorous, back-stabbing liars and frauds who have no plan of action, who wish to implement long-dead Marxist fantasies which will drastrically affect our goverment and economy, and who aim to install anti-war hippy retreads from deacades past who are convinced that their cultural "revolution" is the antidote to what "ails" the country. Those people sent our culture and legal system down the crapper, and now we have conservatives threatening to vote for them.

Go ahead. Vote Democrat. Don't vote at all to "teach the GOP a lesson." The problem is that we'll be paying for that "lesson," and I don't want to hear a sinlge word of complaint when they mow over you and the US loses the war. I don't want to hear whining about high taxes, bad policy or open borders.

If you don't vote, the record will show that you had a chance to stop this onslaught of leftwing insanity, and you submitted.

Whatever happened to "We Will Never Submit?" That's easy enough to say, but living it requires some intestinal fortitude. If you think October is gonna be a long month, the next two years are gonna be wonderfully hellish. Grow a set and hang in there.

With the possible exception of Ronald Reagan, I don't think there has been much of a reason to get excited about either party or their candidates in the past two decades, but that's life at this point.

Vote for the people with whom you disagree less.

A Few Predictions...

I haven't tuned up my Magic Eight Ball in a while, so let's see if the thing still works worth a damn:

Prediction #1 : The next two days will bring more questions than answers as to whether the North Korean explosion was actually a nuclear detonation. By the end of this week, there will be some level of consensus one way or the other. If I were a betting man, I'd put my money on "not nuclear," but not a lot of money. I'm not sure if that makes me an optimist or a pessimist. I also predict that those who question whether the North Koreans are telling the truth will (ironically) be denounced as "commie apologists" or some such. If it was a fake, the rest of us can only ask : WTF??

Prediction #2 : Although the North Korean explosion will dominate the news for a few days, the next week will bring more Democrat-sourced revelations about what the House leadership knew about Mark Foley's habits in the 1995-2005 time frame. This will give the news media an excuse to move the Foley story back to the front pages, which is, of course, what they will do--particularly if the North Korean "nuclear" detonation turns out to have been a fake.

Prediction #3 : The hit for Masturgate has mostly been taken by the GOP polling numbers. Further revelations about the leadership's earlier knowledge of Foley's behavior will have little additional effect on Republican numbers going forward UNLESS there is concrete evidence directly contradicting Hastert's declaration of innocence at his press conference last week. The public has gotten accustomed to politicians revising their stories a few times after a scandal breaks, but there's a limit. It essentially comes down to whether or not there's any concrete evidence that Hastert had knowledge of "vile" (i.e., sexually explicit) messages to underage pages prior to their recent publication. Only time will tell. I predict more uncomfortable revelations between now and next week, but no "smoking gun."

OK, that's what my Magic Eight Ball's telling me. Like I said, only time will tell if the thing still works. If it's off, it's definitely going back to the shop for a tune-up...

al-Qaeda Bombs Palestinian Coffee Shop

You should fast during Ramadan, That includes coffee! If not we’ll blow you up.

Ynet: After the Palestinian branch of al-Qaeda took responsibility for killing a senior Palestinian intelligence officer and four of his escorts three weeks ago, the group again took responsibility for violence in the Gaza Strip. Early Sunday morning, Gunmen shot and set fire to an internet coffee shop in Jabaliya in the northern Gaza Strip, causing massive damage.

Sunday afternoon an announcement was made claiming that the organization Islamic Swords of Justice, identified as an affiliate of al-Qaeda are responsible for the incident.

In the organization's announcement, it was stated that burning the coffee shop is "part of a series of actions aimed at fighting corruption and the corrupt. During the holy month of Ramadan, our fighters have started operating on the holy land and in the early morning placed a bomb weighing ten kilograms (22 pounds) next to the coffee shop, ridden with corruption and characteristic of the unethical activities that have increased in recent days. Jihad fighters detonated the bomb as a message to all the corrupt people."

Nope no coercion there, Islam is the religion of peace and tolerance! Move along now while you still have your head. Remember the only thing you can do more of during Ramadan is kill the infidels. Allah loves the increase in death and violence that accompanies every Ramadan.

Christian Children Murdered

This fine example of Muslim tolerance of Christians comes from where else but that shining example of Islamic moderation Pakistan.

Assist News:MUZAFFARABAD, PAKISTAN (ANS) -- In an horrific incident of Christian persecution on September 1, some unidentified militants slew two children of a missionary couple who is working with At Any Cost Jesus Mission, a underground ministry evangelizing to the Muslim nations.

A press release sent via e-mail to ANS by Any Cost Jesus Mission said that the assailants torched the dead bodies of teenaged children Shalom, 15 and Sharon 14 after murdering them brutally in the northern district of Pakistan.

The teenaged victims according to the press release were secondary school students.

“Shalom and Sharon were kidnapped along with their missionary parents and two other younger sisters 10 days before the murder. The militants asked them to convert to Islam but they refused,” said the press release.

“So the militants killed Shalom first. Then they raped the girl and cut one of her breasts in front of her parents. She too died”, the press release quoted another underground missionary, Habel who it said broke the news to Any Cost Jesus Mission from a hidden place....

...The press release said that the believers are living in a grip of fear and trouble following the killing of Shalom and Sharon.

The ministry further claimed in the press release that the militants are not allowing believers to pray.

“They are not even allowed to speak a single word about Christ or Christianity or Christians”, the press release quoted Habel as saying.

The tribal people and their leaders are also being murdered by the terrorists in the Neelum Valley, it said.

So the tolerant Taliban cut her breast off? Jesus wept.

SAN FRANCISCO - Google Inc. snapped up YouTube Inc. for $1.65 billion Monday in deal that catapults the Internet search leader to a leading role in the online video revolution.

I wonder how long it will be before ChiCom propaganda videos proliferate there.

Update (already? yes, already.) Or Democrat campaign commercials.

I Can’t Look

Want to watch the Republican Party piss away a seemingly permanent conservative majority in both houses of congress faster than you can get to the tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie pop?

Well we do watch Nascar for the crashes eh?

Note this projection Via election projection.com as of the end of September. Before Mastergate.

Projected Tally
• Senate
This week: 52 GOP, 46 DEM, 2 IND - DEM +2, GOP -3, IND +1
Same count as last week
• House
This week: 221 GOP, 214 DEM, 0 IND - DEM +12, GOP -11, IND -1
Last week: 222 GOP, 213 DEM, 0 IND - DEM +11, GOP -10, IND -1
• Governorships
This week: 22 GOP, 28 DEM - DEM +6, GOP -6
Now the current projection
Senate Projections

Current: 55 GOP, 44 DEM, 1 IND
Projected: 49 GOP, 49 DEM, 2 IND
DEM +5, GOP -6, IND +1

House Projections
Current: 232 GOP, 202 DEM, 1 IND
Projected: 220 GOP, 215 DEM, 0 IND
DEM +13, GOP -12, IND -1

So mastergate has only cost us 3 Senate seats so far?! Smashing.

Really it’s not the voters. It’s not the Christian Conservatives who let the GOP down. It’s not the Midwestern swing state Reagan Republicans that let the GOP down. It’s not even the moderate Democrats who occasionally toss a vote to the GOP if the candidate is good that let the GOP down.

No, The party let all of us down! The people we sent to reign in government spending did not. The people we sent to win the war on terror have not. The people we sent to Washington in hopes that we wouldn’t have to watch another sex scandal let us down.

No it’s not the voters or the citizens it’s the politicians. I feel bad for the Democrats, because the odds that their selections will actually do what they are sent to do is very poor.

We have a few good conservative Democrats left here in the Midwest. We will be sending a few up to Washington. Remember once a person is elected he represents Republicans and Democrats. It’s up to the people to keep the pressure on.

I feel the middle of both parties lean conservative and we have to make sure the politicians hear us. Too often our votes are bought with empty lipservice to our issues. It’s time to make damn sure that once our politicians (man that’s a nasty word) get there they do what was promised.

Of course you can kiss your tax cut goodbye. It was a good one but it don’t pay for all the other crap.

In the good old partisan spirit I present you this effing futile video to help offset Mastergate for all the good it does now.

F*cking assholes pissing away the majority we worked our asses off for. They deserve a size 14 voters boot up their hindquarters! No the voters have not changed, we still want what we wanted before. You let us down!

Oh and watch all the bloody action here at Election Projection.com

They Grow Up So Fast

Why I remember when Bluto (er uh Al Brown) started posting here. He was just a wee little guy in his little pirate outfit. But now he’s become. The Worst Person in The World.

News Busters:On Friday's "Countdown," MSNBC host Keith Olbermann named NewsBusters the "Worst Persons in the World." Olbermann took issue with a posting by NB contributor Al Brown, who mistakenly said Brian Williams instead of Brian Ross. Brown corrected the post after an NB commentor, SMGalbraith, noticed the error. But it was too late: Olbermann had seized the error and made it the centerpiece of his "Worst Person" segment.

A name error tops the list as the "worst"? The "paper of record," the New York Times, runs a daily corrections page and has an average of seven errors per day.

Sniff, Sniff, Kind of gets you right here doesn’t it?

Deeyah : What Will it Be?

If there REALLY WERE anywhere near as many "moderate" and/or "liberal" Muslims as the CAIR and MAS apologists would have us believe, we'd see a whole lot more of this type of thing (Warning : includes exposed female belly & legs.

Mohammad Cartoons on YouTube

(Copenhagen, Denmark) Holy moly! It appears that the world may see another flare-up of Muslim indignation. Danish television has aired video of images mocking Mohammad which were drawn by members of the anti-immigrant Danish People's Party (DPP) during summer camp.

From Reuters.com:

The foreign ministry said in a statement on Monday that footage of the cartoons was first posted on the video-sharing web site YouTube, which is not hosted in Denmark.

"Danish television channels TV-2 and DR later aired extracts," it said. "The intention of airing the extracts was not to provoke Muslims but to illustrate the matter in an interview on DR with the chairman of the DPP Youth Organization, who distanced himself (from) the video clips."

The ministry issued a strong advisory to Danes against travel to the Gaza Strip and cautioned against travel to Israel and the West Bank, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Jordan, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey.

"A militant group in Gaza has made threats against Danes in the Palestinian areas in connection with the (cartoon) matter on October 9," the advisory said. "We urge Danes to use caution as the matter could lead to negative reactions."

Yeah, that's what it says. There could be some "negative reactions" from the followers of the religion of peace. Excuse me! It seems that all their reactions are negative ... uh, that is, except when infidels are murdered. Then, they rejoice.

Haven't found a link to the video yet.

Update by Howie: Michelle is following the YouTube censorship story here today. conplete with an embed of Rocket Ride. Automatic link

Here is the most recent I found.

And here too

Even more.

It seems they only get upset if Kuffar posts these. Muslim reaction with examples are plentiful.

African Taliban Declares Jihad Against Ethiopia

_42179459_ahmed203bap.jpg
You know "Jihad", the struggle for inner peace that comes after careful self introspection and study of the will of Allah as laid down in the Koran and the Hadiths.

BBC:Somalia's Islamists have accused Ethiopian troops of attacking a town and have vowed a "holy war" in revenge.

The town of Bur Haqaba lies on the road from the government base in Baidoa to the Islamist-held capital, Mogadishu.

Ethiopia denies that its troops have crossed the border but does support the government against the Islamists.

An Islamist leader, wearing fatigues and holding an AK-47, said a "jihad" had been declared on Ethiopia, raising fears of a regional conflict.

"Heavily armed Ethiopian troops have invaded Somalia," said Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, seen as a moderate within the Union of Islamic Courts (UIC).
"They have captured Bur Haqaba. History shows that Somalis always win when they are attacked from outside."

And if your neighbors fail to see the wisdom of Dhimmification and submitting to the will of Allah, he says you can give them a good old moderate chop chop choppity chop to the neck!

Or shoot somebody, a Nun in the back maybe?

Mr. Nose

For a break, here's something a little different for the readers.

From The Seoul Times:

A 16-year-old Asian male elephant surprised his trainer and other people because the male elephant speaks the human language, said the elephant trainer Kim Jong-Gap.

Kim, 39, who works at Everland Zoo in Yongin, South Korea's Gyeonggi Province, said on Sept. 7, 2006 that he heard his elephant named Mr. Nose speak words of the human language. It happend while he was working.

Kim said that Mr. Nose is able to pronounce eight words including "Good," "Lie Down," "No," "Not Yet," and "Turn Around." The elephant's pronunciation of the Korean language is nearly the same as any Korean person.

Good! That means only Korean-speaking people have to be nervous if Mr. Nose tells them to turn around and lie down.

Life Imitating Art

I was scrolling through this small photo album of pictures from a businessman traveling through North Korea, and this one struck me:

From the accompanying photo description:

On a frosty day, peasants cluster on a remote country lane to dig at the ice caking roads and streams so they can access the mud underneath.

Mud is valuable as a fertiliser. Throughout the seasons, piles of mud and even human manure will be applied onto fields in order to make the crops grow better.

I was instantly reminded of a scene from Monthy Python & the Holy Grail - watch the first 3 minutes of this clip and tell me the picture isn't a North Korean version of this scene, sans King Arthur and Patsy. Anarcho-syndaclist ideology, filth gathering and all. Especially relevant is the woman scurrying around in the mud around 1:01 proclaiming "Dennis! There's some lovely filth down here...!"

Iraqi Policemen Poisoned

(Numaniya, Iraq) According to police sources, hundreds of Iraqi policemen were poisoned during their Ramadan meal yesterday. Fatalities have been reported but numbers vary. Whatever the cause, it sure seemed to act quickly. Some men collapsed after standing upon completion of the meal.

From Reuters:

At least seven policemen died and hundreds of others fell ill after suffering food poisoning on Sunday evening in the town of Numaniya, south of Baghdad, police sources at the base said on Monday.

It was not clear if the poisoning at an Iraqi military base was deliberate but police sources said they arrested four cooks on Monday suspected of tampering with the food.

But the spokesman for the commander of the Iraqi armed forces said no one had died.

"Three hundred and fifty to 400 people were poisoned, they were given medical treatment instantly and four were taken to a nearby hospital and everyone has returned to normal," spokesman Brigadier Qasim al-Musawi told a news conference.

Aljazeera.net reports that "policemen began bleeding from the ears and nose after the meal." The policemen are attached to the 4th Division, National Police, nicknamed the "Karrar" division, after a title of Imam Ali, the 4th Muslim caliph.

The food and water have been sampled for testing. Almost all the victims are Shi'ite Muslims from southern Iraq. They blame a Sunni contractor providing food for the base. Wasit Province Governor Hamad al-Latif stated that the food and water are provided by an unnamed Australian contractor working through Iraqi subcontractors.

The investigation continues.

NorK Nuke Test Pt. II.

This one has Karl Rove all over it. He probably pushed the button, for all we know.

"The Clinton-Kim Agreement of 1994, midwifed by Jimmy Carter, bears its fruit."
So writes Hugh Hewitt. This ain't good news for a Monday. All the latest here.

Of course, Foleygate and gay sex / cyber-sex are now the focus of the political conversation in Washington. The Democrats are BACK, BA-BEE!!

Because it is so important to know every salacious detail of an ex-Congressman's perversity , we will simply ignore the fact that a rouge Communist country is detonating nuclear weapons in Asia after launching missles towards Hawaii this summer.

Priorities. Sleep well, fellow citizens.

Muslims Are Victims of a Media Conspiracy?

According to this YouTuber, there's a media conspiracy going on to unfairly portray Muslims as violent:

I don't know who this guy is, but he's polished and well-spoken. Well-done propaganda. He has the CAIR talking points down pat.

YouTube Jihad : The Top 10 "Islam" Videos on YouTube

Ranked by traffic:

1. Wafa Sultan - Truth About Islam (Hebrew Subtitles)

2. Rosie O'Donnell is out of her mind!

3. Truth about islam from an ex-muslim lady (Wafa Sultan again)

4. islam

5. Even Stevphen - Islam vs. Christianity

6. Faces of Death

7. All Your Fakes Are Belong to Us (Go Jawas!)

8. Trailer - If Americans Only Knew

9. My Ummah

10. Idruss

Yes, there's a ton of misinformation on YouTube, but it looks like some truth is still getting through.

I was encouraged to see that the top 3 videos are coming from the right point of view. Wafa Sultan is, of course, nothing short of devastatingly awesome. Video number 4 is some pro-Islamic stuff. Video number 5, from The Daily Show, is far from pro-Islam. Video number 6 is shootout footage shot from the jihadi side. Video number 7--well, you know where that one's coming from. The last three are pro-Islamic vids.

YouTube Jihad : 3alibaba's Videos GONE

YouTuber SpiritofCMartel (formerly Crusader18) brought this to my attention. Owing to the attention brought by the Jawas and others, this 3alibaba's videos have now been removed and his account suspended. Here's his message:

I want to thank you all. This user started out with 10 unabashedly Heinous jihadist videos, and now all are gone. You did this, and I thank you. When you click on this profile if it shows any videos, click on any one. I think you will pleasantly surprized. The one question I would ask You, is DID IT REALLY TAKE THAT MUCH OF YOUR TIME? It's worth the 2 minutes you spent flagging him, to remopve those videos. Thank You.

Airboating Through The Fever Swamps

Picture 897.gif

The average Daily Kos reader, male, female, and others

I took a trip to the Dagobah System of the 'sphere, Dkos, just to see what they were saying about the NORK nuke test.

Here's just a small sample of the comments over under there:

...Bush's approval rating is in red-alert territory again. Usually they just up the FearCon level when that happens, but I think that trick's lost most of its effectiveness. So I have to think that, regrettably, you might have something in your last sentence. God grant we're both wrong.
Every single time it gets this bad, and this has been the worst time for him, something happens to pull it out.
I think this is what the Bu$heviki are going to pull out of the hat to distract Amurkans from Foleygate. I'm not--quite--ready to claim they engineered it this way or that this is Rove's "October Surprise," but the timing is certainly convenient. Maybe too damn convenient.
It has happened too many times to be coincidental. And it always is precisely timed. I won't even hesitated to say it is too damn convenient. Believe your eyes and your gut.

There is a sane voice over there, urinating into the gale:

how in the world does the Bush Admin "time" a nuke test by the N Koreans???

I took these five quotes just out the first thirteen. Feel free, if you dare, to go read the rest of them.

Once again, this is a situation where the blame stretches back over many years, not just the last two administrations. This problem goes back to the fact that we failed to completely and utterly defeat and humiliate the enemy in 1953, signed a cease-fire, and voila, here we are today.

But to claim that the Bush Admin. actually orchestrated this for t
