Gaza Flotilla: Bringing Some Of The Videos Out Of The Fold
Misunderstanders of what unarmed means:
Note: Peace activists don't want this shown even though they filmed it. It's being flagged like crazy..
Can't let the truth get in the way now can they? Feckers
Background on IHH who organized the flotillas.
IHH’s orientation is radical-Islamic and anti-American, and it is close to the Muslim Brotherhood (Hamas’ parent movement). IHH supports Hamas and does not hide the connection between them. Hamas also considers its links to IHH and Turkey to be extremely important, and regards Turkey as a target audience for its propaganda network (Palestine-Information, Hamas’ main website, has a Turkish version, and as of the end of 2009, the website of its military wing, the Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades, has also appeared in Turkish).Chicago connection? Kevin Clark Lefty Rear Echelon Commando- what being an A$$hole is all about ! (h/t dm)
Former livestream from IHH I followed throughout the night/early morning today here. It is heavily edited now, but unfortunately for the so called peace activists [Ha!!], others saved it. Stupid feckers using livestream...Bwahahaha

As Sahab, al Qaeda's propaganda arm, released a statement announcing Yazid's death on Al Ansar, a jihadist forum.
Rumors of Yazid's death was first reported by ABC News, which quoted US officials who said a eulogy for Yazid was to be released by As Sahab.

Humanitarian Activism, Turkish style
"Peace Activist" on board Turkish ship prior to the arrival of Israeli forces:
This will give you a feel for what the Israelis had to deal with when boarding the Turkish "humanitarian aid" ship:
The Navy commandos were prepared to mostly encounter political activists seeking to hold a protest, rather than trained street fighters. The soldiers were told they were to verbally convince activists who offer resistance to give up, and only then use paintballs. They were permitted to use their handguns only under extreme circumstances.IDF video of scene follows...
The planned rush towards the vessel’s bridge became impossible, even when a second chopper was brought in with another crew of soldiers. “Throw stun grenades,” shouted Flotilla 13’s commander who monitored the operation. The Navy chief was not too far, on board a speedboat belonging to Flotilla 13, along with forces who attempted to climb into the back of the ship.
The forces hurled stun grenades, yet the rioters on the top deck, whose number swelled up to 30 by that time, kept on beating up about 30 commandos who kept gliding their way one by one from the helicopter. At one point, the attackers nabbed one commando, wrested away his handgun, and threw him down from the top deck to the lower deck, 30 feet below. The soldier sustained a serious head wound and lost his consciousness.
Only after this injury did Flotilla 13 troops ask for permission to use live fire. The commander approved it: You can go ahead and fire. The soldiers pulled out their handguns and started shooting at the rioters’ legs, a move that ultimately neutralized them. Meanwhile, the rioters started to fire back at the commandos.
“I saw the tip of a rifle sticking out of the stairwell,” one commando said. “He fired at us and we fired back. We didn’t see if we hit him. We looked for him later but couldn’t find him.” Two soldiers sustained gunshot wounds to their knee and stomach after rioters apparently fired at them using guns wrested away from troops.

Update II by Allahakchew aka SH. Via IDF Spokesperson Close up video added showing immediate attack on IDF soldiers by so called peace activists.

Free Gaza Movement & The Flotillas
I have been following freegazaorg tweets regarding the flotillas determined to give so called humanitarian aid to the poor Gazan's.
Those who are a part of this are tied to terrorist organizations. So naturally, any bad publicity they can manufacture for Israel is good for them. They counted on it and are working it for all it's worth:
Al Jazerra: Israel attacks Gaza aid fleet .
Tweets from Free Gaza Movement:
Now we're getting threatening phone calls from Israeli thugs telling us we should drown or can we swim.[Please, this is ridiculous, but if you can swim do it for the sake of Hamas...ed]This was done for propaganda purposes, not humanitarian aid, they knew this would happen.
Israeli spin is that THEY were attacked first. Of course, you can see the video where they rappel, aim and shoot at civilians sleeping[Umm, no I didn't, sorry feckers it wasn't on the live feed...ed]
injured to Tel Hashomer in Tel Aviv, Belinson according to Israeli source. They are also posting 16 dead[Let's inflate the numbers, go Hamas idiots]
ACTION: email to protests at freegaza.org information about all the protests and demonstrations going on worldwide related to the #Flotilla[ie: want more propaganda..ed]
Reports coming from Istanbul is that Turks are storming the Israeli embassy there in outrage over what Israel has done[Just what these terrorist supporters wanted..ed]
Israeli TV says that ten have been killed by Israeli gunfire.[Oh goody...ed]
Israeli radio says wounded have been taken to hospital, but it is forbidden to tell anyone which hospital [What, no photo op?]
Israeli radio says that the boats are going to be hauled into Haifa. This was not a confrontation. This was a massacre[by whom pray tell..ed]
And that the boats are being hauled into Haifa and not Ashdod so that journalists are not there[crying, we need journalists..ed]
Don't know fate of the other boats [ie; No propaganda to report,,ed]
At about 4:30 am, Israeli commandos dropped from helicopter onto deck of Turkish ship, immediately opened fire on unarmed civilians.[Not, they attacked the IDF...ed]
Haaretz.com: Several casualties in clash between Gaza aid #flotilla, Israel Navy[Clash without weapons?...ed]
IDF soldiers are taking control of the IHH ship, but live stream is still working [Why the livestream? I watched it and you are wrong on all counts..ed]
IDF commandoes descending from an helicopter on the IHH turkish ship. The ship is surrounded by Navy vessels[See what I mean?]
Left out of the tweets was this:
IDF Navy commandos encountered fierce resistance early Monday morning as they boarded international aid ships on the way to Gaza to break the Israeli blockade of the Strip.And a good commentary by JPost
According to defense officials, upon boarding the ships the commandos were attacked by activists with rocks, knives and metal pipes.[Weapons of choice to cry "they murdered some of us"]
The soldiers responded with crowd dispersion measures.[Hell ya...ed]
At one point activists succeeded in stealing the weapon of one of the soldiers, leading to an escalation in violence.[Well ya,...ed]
According to unconfirmed Turkish reports, 10 activists were killed and dozens more were injured. [Oh goody, more fodder...ed]
At least 6 Israeli soldiers were injured in the fighting, 2 of whom are in moderate condition.
Let’s not fool ourselves. Even if Israel allowed these ships and all such ships to dock in Gaza City’s harbor, it would still be accused of laying siege to the Palestinians in the Strip since, albeit along with Egypt, it controls the land crossings.Don't forget Blog Sabbath Caption Contest: St Pancake (Rachel Corrie) Edition.
In the end, after all, the flotilla is just another chapter in an international campaign to chip away at Israel’s legitimate right to defend itself.
As an aside, and important one, the family of a soldier kidnapped by Hamas, Gilad Shalit, said they would support the flotillas if the organizers would urge Hamas to allow international organizers to visit him. they refused.
Feck the organizers, feck the flotillas and feck Hamas...

The army says the soldiers were attacked with knives and clubs as they boarded the six vessels Monday. It says soldiers opened fire after a protester grabbed a weapon from one of the commandos.
The army says dozens of people were wounded, both soldiers and activists, and it is evacuating the casualties from the Mediterranean by helicopter.

The costly toll of Yemen’s southern blockade
As Yemen’s blockade on southern Yemen enters its third week, stocks of food, medicine and oil have dwindled to dangerous levels. Prices have skyrocketed and already malnourished children bear the brunt of the military action.
The blockade began 17 days ago when the Western Armored Division established new checkpoints on roads and at city entrances preventing the flow of persons and commerce including food, medicine, oil and water. The blockade has cut off Radfan, Yafea, al Dhala, al Melah, al Habeelan, al Shaib, Gahaf, Lazarik, and parts of Shabwah.
The main road between Aden and al Dahlie is closed. Al Habaleen, Lahj was indiscriminately shelled three days ago after two soldiers were killed in an ambush. Another ambush in al Melah killed one soldier, and authorities have accused renegade elements of the southern independence movement with the attacks.
Nearly one thousand have fled Radfan, al Habaleen and al Bilah seeking safety. Like the 250,000 internally displaced by the Sa’ada War, these are mostly women and children. On May 24, a pregnant woman en route to a hospital in Aden was stopped at a military checkpoint and later died in childbirth.
Reports indicate a heavy military mobilization including tanks and armored personnel carriers. As during the Saada war, a total media blackout is in place, often accomplished by the arrest of southern journalists. An American journalist was expelled from Yemen last week after visiting Yafee, a center of southern resistance.
On May 22, the 20th anniversary of Yemeni unity, President Saleh announced the pardon of southern journalists and other political prisoners. Several high profile journalists were released, but others remain imprisoned and hundreds of others arrested during protests remain jailed.
Baggash Al Aghbari has been in prison since his arrest in 1994, despite several amnesties for southerners announced over the following decade. Al Aghbari was never charged or tried but was thought to be among the activists that triggered the civil war.
The southern independence movement began as a call for equal rights in 2007. As the state imprisoned thousands and police killed hundreds during peaceful demonstrations, the movement gained supporters and its goals evolved to calls for independence.
he northern Yemeni Arab Republic and the southern Peoples Democratic Republic of Yemen unified in 1990 and fought a brief civil war in 1994. Southerners claim unity was imposed by force in violation of the UN resolutions. Northern hegemony brought institutionalized discrimination more akin to occupation than unity that reached into areas of employment, education and development. However, the massive corruption of the Saleh regime means that all citizens outside the circle of elite power are subject to retribution by the state including the judiciary, police and civil service. All Yemenis suffer from the near absence of basic services arising from chronic mismanagement and insider infighting and embezzlement.
With a peace deal concluded in February ending the northern Sa’ada War, President Ali Abdullah Saleh heightened the military presence in the south. Yemen’s conduct of the Saada war generated 250,000 internal refugees with arbitrary aerial bombing of civilian areas and a strict blockade of food, medicine and international aid.
Human Rights Watch has called for an investigation into war crimes committed during the Saada war.
Yemen’s previous violations of international law related the southern protests include mass arbitrary arrests and the murder of hundreds of peaceful protesters, rights organizations charged. As tensions mounted over the last year, some northern merchants and travelers were targets of violence in southern areas.
UPDATE: Cell phone video shot today: Yemeni military armored vehicle in al Hableen ran over and killed a motorcyclist suspected of sympathies with the separatists. Embedded below the fold.
Chemical Attack Against US Troops in Afghanistan?
A handful of US troops in Afghanistan are I'll after what appears to be a low grade chemical weapons attack, possibly chlorine based. Gateway Pundit has the details. As we've seen over and over again, deploying chemical weapons is a lot less effective in practice than on paper. Also, if this pans out then will we expect outrage from the anti-war crowd against this clear violation of the international laws of war?

Well Feck, BP To Announce Failure Of "Top Kill" Method To Plug Oil Gusher
FNC Live stream Update: News conference over.
The Times-Picayune is reporting that BP officials are set to announce the failure of the "top kill" method to stop the oil gusher in the Gulf of Mexico.I am sure Obi One has this all under control...meh
BP is expected to announce its next option would be to cut off the damaged riser from which the oil is leaking and cap it with a containment valve that is already resting on the seafloor. BP is already preparing for that operation, Suttles said.
The top kill began Wednesday, and "to date it hasn't yet stopped the flow," BP PLC chief operating officer Doug Suttles told reporters at Port Fourchon earlier Saturday. "What I don't know is whether it ultimately will or not."

Afghanistan: Coalition Splodes A Dope
Just when the dope was getting the hang of being a shadow governor...
Coalition and Afghan forces killed the Taliban's shadow governor for the province of Baghlan, dealing yet another blow to the group's leadership network in the north.Taliban spokesman: Everyone raise your hands, who wants to be the next
Mullah Rohullah, the shadow governor for Baghlan, was killed after a joint Coalition and Afghan force called in "precision air strikes" against two vehicles transporting Taliban fighters in the Baghlan-i-Jadid district. Rohullah's convoy was identified by human "intelligence sources," the International Security Assistance Force stated in a press release that highlighted his death.
The joint Coalition and Afghan ground force then engaged additional Taliban fighters "who were heavily armed with a heavy machine gun, multiple rocket propelled grenades, automatic rifles, hand-grenades, ammunition, and communications equipment." The Taliban fighters attacked the joint force, but were defeated. ISAF did not provide a total number of Taliban fighters killed in the engagement.[Read more..]

No sh*t? Taliban Behind Mosque Massacre
Some Muslims just aren't Muslim enough:
Police on Saturday blamed the Pakistani Taliban for attacks that killed 93 people at two mosques belonging to a minority sect, and said the militants involved had trained in an Afghan border region where the U.S. wants Islamabad to mount an army operation.No doubt the bros will: a) celebrate the attack, praising the Pakistani Taliban for carrying out Allah's (SWT) judgment on the murtadeen (apostates); b) decry the attack, blaming instead the Jews/CIA/Pakistani intelligence who just want to make the Taliban look bad. That's just how they roll.
The attacks against the Ahmadi community occurred minutes apart Friday in two neighborhoods in the eastern city of Lahore. Two teams of gunmen, including some in suicide vests, stormed the mosques and sprayed bullets at worshippers while holding off police....
Local TV channels had been reporting that the Pakistani Taliban, or one of their affiliates, had claimed responsibility for the attack....
"Our initial investigation has found that they all belong to Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan," or Pakistani Taliban movement,
I'm actually pretty bullish on Obama's Pakistan strategy. At least, it seems more hawkish than Bush's. I'm inclined to think that near the end of the last administration the CIA and Pentagon just had enough with Pakistani duplicity and the present policy of Predator strikes is simply the implementation of a policy already adopted previously. But I don't know the behind the scenes decision making policy and at least in public, we can see more strikes now than two years ago.
I don't even mind the limp wristed rhetoric of the Obama Administration inasmuch as it has some serious disconnect from reality. Lying to people publicly is often times the best diplomatic option. By all quantitative measures, we've upped the military responses in Pakistan.
Long term, though, our little alliance with Pakistan is unsustainable. We have different interests, the present cooperation being convenient for now but only as long as the Taliban threaten both us and them. It's why we must keep the we-will-end-your-miserable-fascist-failed-state-once-and-for-all option on the table. Because once the Taliban wise up the stick is the only incentive we have to induce cooperation.
Strategically, we must continue to build a relationship with India, our natural ally in the region. Because 50 years down the line there will be no Pakistan, but India will remain and may even be one of three or four superpowers.

Spanish Town Bans Burqa
(Lerida, Spain) Likely to add fuel to the existing controversy regarding the burqa ban in Belgium and the anticipated ban in France, the Spanish town of Lerida has banned the burqa in public buildings.
The town council voted to prohibit the "use of the veil and other clothes and accessories which cover the face and prevent identification in buildings and installations of the town hall."Wow! "Respect for ... equality and tolerance" is near verbatim of what we hear incessantly from the Muslim leaders promoting sharia.
The vote, by 23 to one with two abstentions, is the first of its kind in Spain, a country where Islamic veils and the body-covering burqas are little in evidence despite a large Muslim population.
The move is aimed at promoting "respect for the dignity of women and values of equality and tolerance," the town hall said in a statement.
My Name is Rusty. I Blog Here. I'm Back from Ireland.
Hello folks, I'm back from my yearly hop across the pond. This year it was to Ireland where I spent the better part of a week in Dublin and a few days out on the Dingle Peninsula.
What can I say about Ireland other than it is gorgeous and the people are wonderful? Also, I must be the only tourist who gets sunburned in Ireland every time I go. I mean, this is fecking Ireland for crying out loud! You're supposed to bring an umbrella, not sunscreen.
Let me also make a shout out to the pro-American anti-jihadi bloggers who hung out with me one evening on the beautiful shores of Dun Laoghaire. Tony Allwright (our gracious host), John McGuirk (who showed up with a reporter from the Irish Times in tow, but who I'm pretty sure is so ashamed that she was at a right-wing event in a non-official capacity that she will make good on her promise to keep the whole thing off the record), Tom Carew, and Mark Humphrys who put the whole thing together.
I'm pretty sure we had just about every self identified right leaning libertarian in the Republic of Ireland at the table, which is kind of sad. The consensus seemed to be that although Ireland is one of the most economically free countries in the world and that on most issues the Irish leaned right-of-center, that being called conservative or right-wing was something to be avoided at all costs. Something like being labeled a socialist in the US.
I love Ireland and its people. Despite the popularity of Eurocentrism, talk of social justice, and an air of political correctness among its elite, the Irish are culturally and politically closer to America than any other country that I've been to (which excludes Australia). And yes, that means Canada, too, where in my mind even the Conservatives would be closer to the Democratic party than to the Republicans and where political correctness seems to have become a way of life. F*ck (feck, in polite company) is still the favorite word of the Irish people and nearly every one you meet has a cousin in the US.
And if you've never been to the Dingle Peninsula -- especially when the weather is good, which I'm becoming more and more convinced coincides precisely and only with my visits -- then you are missing one of the most beautiful parts of the world, hands down. The Slea Head loop is like the Ring of Kerry, only you can do the whole thing in a couple of hours and with half the tour buses competing for the rather pathetic things they call "roads" over there. The visit is doubly necessary if you like fresh sea food, which I do. Skip the #1 rated Out of the Blue (which was pretentious, wine only, and the food only so-so) and try one of the dozens of pubs which server sea food on top of the regular fare.
For the best mussels, go to Danno's which also has a nice beer garden for that rare sunny & warm day. As for fresh, the last time I was there they ran out of mussels. No problem, five minutes later I see our waitress walk through the door with a bag full of them. The cream sauce the mussels come in is so good, the soda bread -- which I'm generally not so fond of -- won't go to waste as you'll use it to sop up every last drop. And for some of the best high-end pub food try the Marina Inn which has daily specials. We had some kind of locally caught fish topped with Dingle Bay prawns which was spectacular.
In any event, two thumbs up for Ireland. If they could just get over their present neutral-but-leaning-toward-NATO foreign policy I might find it in my heart to forgive them their neutral-but-leaning-toward-the-Nazis-just-to-spite-the-British past. Come on Ireland, you're better than that!

Civil Liberty Advocates, Taking Down Terrorist Websites Ineffective
Federal authorities should rely on the Internet to identify and track terrorist threats and to launch counterterrorism campaigns, but not censor websites as a means to quell online recruitment by extremist groups, civil liberty advocates told a House panel on Wednesday.To hell with respecting the civil rights of terrorists supporting terrorist groups with whom we are at war. Its called treason. The only right we should be concerned with is his right to chose a firing squad or a rope.
"The dilemma is that the Internet is a forum for free speech and global commerce, but the underside of that is it can also be a forum for violence and global terror," said Rep. Jane Harman, D-Calif., chairwoman of the House Subcommittee on Intelligence, Information Sharing and Terrorism Risk Assessment. "How to respect individual freedom and access, and yet find those who abuse the Internet and stop them before they act is a huge and difficult challenge."
The just observe doctrine is plenty productive if you are willing to tolerate a few dead bodies, American bodies.
I agree the most valuable forums can be left alone for the most part, aside from the occasional take down or infiltrate, just to add a little fear and distrust into the mix.
The vast majority or sites do not provide valuable intelligence while they spread the enemy's propaganda message. Taking down some websites can also herd the cats to a location where they can be more easily monitored. it also can provide information on which users are risk tolerant and dedicated.
Obviously the just watching was not productive enough to catch Umar Abdul Mutallab, Nidal Hussain or Faisal Shahzad.
People are dead because of it.
The only reason more people are not dead is because the Lord was watching over us. Lets not test his patience.
Jawa Report agrees there need to be a balance but its so far been too much watch and not enough action. The intelligence side of this argument would sit and watch till we are all dead.

Push To Let Australian Doctors Mutilate Genitals Of Baby Girls (Updated - No Support For FGM)
The college for Australia's obstetricians and gynaecologists says it does not support the "ritual nicking" of young Muslim girls and anyone suspected of performing such genital mutilation should be reported to authorities.Good, apparently the backing part was misquote.
Dr Ted Weaver, president of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG), said media reports suggesting the college would review its policy were the result of a misquote.
He said the issue was likely to be discussed at a meeting next month, triggered by recent announcements made by the American Academy of Pediatrics, but a policy shift was not on the agenda.
"The college does not support - does not - support female genital mutilation, full-stop," Dr Weaver said.
"This ritual nicking, as it has been called, has been put forward as a way of satisfying cultural sensitivities without making a lot of difference to a woman's genitalia but we do not support that either."
Thanks to Mashua Against FGM for the update.
AUSTRALIAN doctors are considering a controversial form of genital mutilation on baby girls.Tell me again how male circumcision is the same...
The practice involving cutting a girl's genitals, sometimes with razors or pieces of glass, could be allowed in a clinical setting to stem illegal backyard procedures which are leaving young girls scarred for life.
The Royal Australian New Zealand College of Obstetricians will next month discuss backing "ritual nicks", a modified form of genital mutilation[...]
But experts are divided on whether to allow the practice, given that in some cultures it is used to remove the sexual feelings of women.
Female genital mutilation has been outlawed in Australia since the 1990s but is common among African, Asian and Middle Eastern communities.

In the past 24 hours, there has been an exchange of harsh words between Iran and Russia. When Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad threatened Russia by saying that its policy was turning it into an enemy of Iran, the Russians responded by calling Ahmadinejad a demagogue, and by issuing an unprecedented warning to Tehran while reminding it of the historic power balance between the two countries – under which Russia took for itself lands from the 19th-century Persian empire and forced it to sign humiliating agreements accepting these terms.

Prophet[Pedophile..ed] Mohammed, has been reinvited to speak at Uppsala University, where he was attacked two weeks ago.

Bill Clinton To Get Tread Marks
The conversations with Sestak were initiated by Clinton at the behest of White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel. Emanuel was Clinton's political director when he was president. Clinton promoted Sestak to vice admiral and made his director of defense policy. Sestak was a loyal and tireless supporter of Hillary Clinton's run for the presidency in 2008.
The report will be released one day after President Obama said the White House would issue a formal explanation that should answer questions about Sestak's allegation and insisted "nothing improper" happened. On the same day, Clinton had lunch with Obama.
I wonder what Bill had for lunch? I will donate my next month's paycheck from Rusty to the author of the best comment.
Muslims Against Religious War, Bloodshed and for Morality, Justice and Peace Murdered by Muslims for Religious War, Bloodshed and Against Morality, Justice and Peace
Islamabad, Pakistan (CNN) -- Bombing and firearms attacks in Pakistan targeting houses of worship for a persecuted religious minority killed at least 70 people Friday, a senior government official said.And how do the Taliban supporters on a top al-Qaeda forum respond to the senseless murder of innocents at a Mosque?
The strikes took place at two mosques in Lahore belonging to the Ahmadi religious group, police and rescue officials said.
Ahmadis regard themselves as Muslim. But the government says they aren't and many Muslim extremists have targeted them. Sunni and Shia Muslims do not regard followers of the religion as Muslims because they do not regard Mohammed as the last prophet sent by God.
The movement was founded in 1889. Its followers believe that Mirza Ghulam Ahmad (1835-1908) was sent by God as a prophet "to end religious wars, condemn bloodshed and reinstitute morality, justice and peace," the worldwide Ahmadi group says.
The group, which is thought to number between 3 million and 4 million people in the country, endures "the most severe legal restrictions and officially sanctioned discrimination" among Pakistan's religious minorities, according to the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom.

Marxist Realty Management Tries To Undouche Itself, But Fails
How nice of Marxist Realty Management to relent and let the Price's fly their American flag in the window.
Or is it?
Just 2 days later the company set up a compromise which allowed the flag to stay if it moved to a rear window.
Guess it really isn't.
Then the company had another change of heart on Thursday and decided to let the flag stay exactly where it is.
Marxist Realty Management, with all of your flip flops, is John Kerry on your board of directors? I know you think that we're supposed to thank you for your change of heart, and then your other change of heart, but you're just a bunch of worthless opportunists trying to spin your way back into the hearts of prospective renters.
Had this story not gone national, the fairy fine fellows at Marxist Realty Management would no doubt have evicted the Price family. Nice try on the rebound Marxist Realty Management, but, let's face it, you still suck.
Weight Probation at Hooters
(Detroit, Michigan) On May 14, a 20-year-old waitress at a Hooters Restaurant, Cassandra "Cassie" Smith, claims she was put on "weight probation" and told that she had 30 days to make an improvement by joining a gym and trimming down. Otherwise, the 5'8" 132-pound woman was told that she could be discharged.
Although Hooters representatives have denied making weight an issue regarding discipline or dismissal, Smith filed a discrimination lawsuit this week in Macomb County Circuit Court claiming Hooters committed a civil rights violation.
Smith seeks a judgment of lost wages and compensation for emotional distress.
Smith's lawyers intend to prove that Hooters violated the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act which is unique to Michigan and bars discrimination based on weight.
Furthermore, there is international interest in the case since it apparently involves a human right to weight. Also, an Irish bookmaking firm, Paddy Power (www.paddypowerplc.com), is handicapping and taking bets on the outcome of the lawsuit. (More w/video)

Female Genital Mutitilation NOT Coming To A Pediatrician Near You
(CNN) -- The American Academy of Pediatrics has rescinded a controversial policy statement raising the idea that doctors in some communities should be able to substitute demands for female genital cutting with a harmless clitoral "pricking" procedure.Thanks to all who signed the petition and helped in other ways to get the word out.
"We retracted the policy because it is important that the world health community understands the AAP is totally opposed to all forms of female genital cutting, both here in the U.S. and anywhere else in the world," said AAP President Judith S. Palfrey.
The contentious policy statement, issued in April, had condemned the practice of female genital cutting overall. But a small portion of statement suggesting the pricking procedure riled U.S. advocacy groups and survivors of female genital cutting
In the April statement, the group raised the idea that some physicians should be able to prick or nick a girl's clitoral skin in order to "satisfy cultural requirements." The group likened the nick to an ear piercing.
On Thursday the AAP stated the group will not condone doctors to provide any kind of "clitoral nick." The AAP also clarified nicking a girl or woman's genitals is forbidden under a 1996 federal law banning female genital mutilation.
The Ground Zero Mosque Developer: Muslim Brotherhood Roots, Radical Dreams
Excellent background on Faisal Abdul Rauf by Alyssa A Lappen at Pajamas Media
Everything there is to know about Faisal Abdul Rauf, the wolf in sheep's clothing behind the planned lower Manhattan mega-mosque.h/t "guest" from my previous post: Ground Zero Imam: I Don't Believe In Religious Dialogue
The prospective developer of a $100 million, 13-story mosque 600 feet from Ground Zero presents himself as a Muslim moderate (1). Yet Kuwait-born Faisal Abdul Rauf also boasts of his issue from an “Egyptian family steeped in religious scholarship” (2). Indeed, Feisal Rauf’s Muslim Brotherhood provenance, radical by definition, is as authentic as it gets.
Rauf’s father, Dr. Muhammad Abdul Rauf (1917-2004) — an Egyptian contemporary of Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna — conveyed to Feisal his family’s long tradition of radicalism, which he acquired at Islam’s closest equivalent to the Vatican, Al-Azhar University. The elder Dr. Rauf studied and taught there before fleeing Egypt in 1948. That year, Feisal Abdul Rauf was born in Kuwait.
Feisal Rauf has planned for some time to further develop his father’s U.S. Islamic expansionism. In 1990, Rauf opened the tiny al-Farah Mosque at 245 West Broadway in lower Manhattan. Area residents did not even notice the mosque until 2006, when the New York State Liquor Authority (SLA) refused to license a new bar on the same block and started yanking others’ liquor licenses (3).
Rauf attended grammar school and high school in the UK and Malaysia, according to his biography. He probably first lived in America only in 1965, at age 17, when his father moved from Malaysia to New York to plan and head the Islamic Cultural Center (not built until the mid-1980s) (4). Rauf then obtained a BS in physics at Columbia University (5). In 1971, the family moved to Washington, D.C., where Rauf’s father headed the Islamic Center on Massachusetts Ave (6). His father, buried in Suitland, MD, at the for-profit Washington National Cemetery, also founded three Malaysian Islamic studies programs, including the International Islamic University of Malaysia (7).
Rauf’s early UK education and familiarization with American popular culture and values made him an acutely adept practitioner of Islamic taqiyya — deceptive speech and action to advance the interests and supremacy of Islam (8). To further that Islamic advancement, Rauf in 1997 established the American Society for Muslim Advancement (ASMA). His Kashmir-born wife Daisy Kahn, an interior designer by profession, has run the organization since 2005 (9).[Read more..]

Old Guard Soldiers Put 'Flag In' At Arlington National Cemetary
WASHINGTON, May 27, 2010 – More than 1,500 servicemembers from the “Old Guard” and other ceremonial units gathered at Arlington National Cemetery today for a sacred ritual marking the start of the Memorial Day weekend observance.God Bless those who served, serving & those who gave all. They are heroes and should never be forgotten, ever.
The men and women, representing all the services and Coast Guard, carried rucksacks full of small American flags, performing the time-honored Flags In event of marking the cemetery’s more than 350,000 white headstones with the stars and stripes.
“This is one of the many distinct honors entrusted to the Old Guard,” Army Maj. Rosy Poulos, 3rd Infantry public affairs officer, said. “They’re out here until every flag is placed, whether that’s 6:30 or 9:30 [p.m.]”
Sgt. Patrick Smith, from the Old Guard’s B Company, has placed flags in the cemetery for the past three years. Though the work is repetitive, he said, he considers it an honor.
“It’s a good way to honor the fallen, the ones who gave so many years of their lives, or their life itself, to the service of our country,” he said.
Smith said once he starts to see the headstones, and reads as he places each flag, a feeling of respect and reverence takes over.
“Once you start walking, and you see the headstones, there’s a certain connection, sort of an esprit de corps,” Smith said. “You see them and you get a feeling for how many have given their lives. It doesn’t matter what rank they held or what service they were a part of, each are treated as honorably as the other, they each get a flag.”
Staff Sgt. Rob Woodring placed flags for the first time today. At first he wasn’t sure what to expect, beyond the task itself. But he said it’s impossible not to feel a connection when surrounded by generations of servicemembers.
“These people all gave their lives to the military, and to our country, whether they’re here because they dedicated their lives to service or gave their lives in service,” he said.
Flags-in has been performed annually since 1948 when the Old Guard was named the Army’s official ceremonial unit. The Old Guard includes the guards at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, the Continental Color Guard and all Army funerals at Arlington National Cemetery. The flags will be removed early June 1 before the cemetery opens.
Each flag is centered precisely one foot in front of the headstone. Many soldiers use gloves equipped with wood, plastic, or metal plates to protect their hands as they place, on average, more than 230 flags each. Though some said they’d like a cooler day, none complained about the task itself.
“We’re part of something special,” Master Sgt. Kristine Zielinski said. “We get to honor our comrades.”
Ground Zero Imam: I Don't Believe In Religious Dialogue
He didn't say it in English, mind you. It was in Arabic...
[I]s Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf — founder of the hugely controversial Ground Zero mosque — lying to the American public and his fellow New Yorkers?Oh there's more, much more. 9/11, current governments are unjust because they don't follow Shariah Law, etc.
Pajamas Media has uncovered extraordinary contradictions between what he says in English and what he says in Arabic that raise serious questions about his true intentions in the construction of the mosque.
On May 25, 2010, Abdul Rauf wrote an article for the New York Daily News insisting:My colleagues and I are the anti-terrorists. We are the people who want to embolden the vast majority of Muslims who hate terrorism to stand up to the radical rhetoric. Our purpose is to interweave America’s Muslim population into the mainstream society. [emphasis added]Oh, really?
Only two months before, on March 24, 2010, Abdul Rauf is quoted in an article in Arabic for the website Rights4All entitled “The Most Prominent Imam in New York: ‘I Do Not Believe in Religious Dialogue.’”
Yes, you read that correctly and, yes, that is an accurate translation of Abdul Rauf. And Right4All is not an obscure blog, but the website of the media department of Cairo University, the leading educational institution of the Arabic-speaking world.
In the article, the imam said the following of the “religious dialogue” and “interweaving into the mainstream society” that he so solemnly seems to advocate in the Daily News and elsewhere:This phrase is inaccurate. Religious dialogue as customarily understood is a set of events with discussions in large hotels that result in nothing. Religions do not dialogue and dialogue is not present in the attitudes of the followers, regardless of being Muslim or Christian. The image of Muslims in the West is complex which needs to be remedied.
Read it all...

During a speech at the Center for Strategic and International Studies, John Brennan described violent extremists as victims of "political, economic and social forces,"but said that those plotting attacks on the United States should not be described in "religious terms."

Arizona Is Racist For Wanting To Keep Islamotards, Who Wish To Do Us Harm, From Crossing The Border
Oh wait, it's Texas.
I linked to this earlier on a Arizona Immigration post but felt it needed more attention.
The Department of Homeland Security is alerting Texas authorities to be on the lookout for a suspected member of the Somalia-based Al Shabaab terrorist group who might be attempting to travel to the U.S. through Mexico, a security expert who has seen the memo tells FOXNews.com.File this under it's Islamotard Day or got CAIR?
The warning follows an indictment unsealed this month in Texas federal court that accuses a Somali man in Texas of running a “large-scale smuggling enterprise” responsible for bringing hundreds of Somalis from Brazil through South America and eventually across the Mexican border. Many of the illegal immigrants, who court records say were given fake IDs, are alleged to have ties to other now-defunct Somalian terror organizations that have merged with active organizations like Al Shabaab, al-Barakat and Al-Ittihad Al-Islami[...]
The DHS alert was issued to police and sheriff’s deputies in Houston, asking them to keep their eyes open for a Somali man named Mohamed Ali who is believed to be in Mexico preparing to make the illegal crossing into Texas. Officials believe Ali has ties to Al Shabaab, a Somali terrorist organization aligned with Al Qaeda, said Joan Neuhaus Schaan, the homeland security and terrorism fellow at Rice University’s Baker Institute, who has seen the alert.
An indictment was unsealed in Texas federal court earlier this month that revealed that a Somali man, Ahmed Muhammed Dhakane, led a human smuggling ring that brought East Africans, including Somalis with ties to terror groups, from Brazil and across the Mexican border and into Texas

New York Islamotard Pleads Not Guilty Of Being A Islamotard & Wants To Go Home Now
May 26 (Bloomberg) -- A U.S. citizen charged with conspiring to provide support to al-Qaeda and creating his “own mini-terror cell” was ordered held without bail after he pleaded not guilty in federal court in New York.That's what he gets for following the ROPMA.
Wesam El-Hanafi, 35, poses a danger to the community and is a flight risk, U.S. Magistrate Judge Debra Freeman in Manhattan said today at his arraignment.
Assistant U.S. Attorney John Cronan said El-Hanafi, who was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York, was “turned on” to al-Qaeda while living in the U.S. and traveled to Yemen in February 2008 to meet the network’s senior leaders.
“Mr. El-Hanafi joined the group and he provided very real support to them,” Cronan said. “This is someone who knowingly joined a group whose purpose is to attack America.”
El-Hanafi and co-defendant Sabirhan Hasanoff, 34, are charged with agreeing to provide support to a known terror group, the U.S. said in an indictment. If convicted, both men face as long as 15 years in prison.
Dallas: Islamotard Pleads Guilty
DALLAS—Hosam Maher Husein Smadi pleaded guilty today before U.S. District Judge Barbara M. G.

Jacks of the Northern District of Texas.20th is a good day, it will be the 3 month anniversary of Everybody Draw Mohammed Day. How fitting
“Today’s guilty plea underscores the continuing threat we face from lone actors who, although not members of any international terrorist organization, are willing to carry out acts of violence in this country to further the terrorist cause. I applaud the many agents, analysts and prosecutors responsible for this successful investigation and prosecution,” said David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security.
Smadi, 19, pleaded guilty to one count of attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction. He faces a maximum statutory sentence of life in prison and a $250,000 fine. Under the terms of the plea agreement, however, Smadi faces a sentence of 30 years in prison, if the Court accepts the plea. Judge Lynn set a sentencing date of August 20, 2010.

Fahd al Quso Appears in al Qaeda in Yemen video
Short version: Al Quso attended the al Qaeda summit in Malaysia in January 2000 that planned both the USS Cole attack and 9/11. Other attendees included Nawaf Alhazmi, Khalid Almihdhar, Khalid Shaikh Mohammed. Khallad bin Attash, Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, Hambali. Yazid Sufaat, and Ramzi bin al-Shibh. Al Quso was part of the conspiracy that targeted the USS Cole in October 2000 in the port of Aden. On day of the attack, al Quso was supposed to video the attack, which killed 17 US service members and wounded 49. He told investigators that he overslept. He was jailed in 2002, escaped prison in 2003 and indicted on 50 counts of terror related charges in US Federal court. He was returned to jail in 2004. In 2007, al Quso was given a early release by the Yemeni government within a larger pattern of al Qaeda releases, defended by many as "co-optation" by the Saleh regime when it is the Saleh regime itself that has been co-opted. Here in 2010, al Quso makes an AQAP video threatening the US.
The danger of al Quso in particular is that he is trusted by bin Laden, has operational experience, international connections and already blew up a US warship, so we could expect his next plan to be even bigger. On the other hand, my take on Al Qaeda in Yemen's strategy is that they are trying to suck the US troops into Yemen. And their media strategy reflects that. And that would generate substantial opposition in the heavily armed country from many with no affiliation or sympathy to al Qaeda.
Memri: On May 26, 2010, Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) released a 55-minute video containing new statements by Fahd Al-Quso, a senior Al-Qaeda operative who is under U.S. indictment for his alleged role in the USS Cole bombing. This is the first time that Al-Quso, whom Yemen released from prison in 2007, has appeared in an AQAP production. The new release is also the origin of the footage of Christmas Day bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab that was leaked to ABC. In addition, the video contains statements by Othman Al-Ghamdi, a former Guantanamo Bay detainee whom the video now refers to as an AQAP commander, as well as Qasim Al-Rimi, AQAP's chief military commander. The video is dated Rabi' I 1431, i.e. February-March 2010. The video praises the Yemeni tribes and mentions the tribal affiliations of the various AQAP operatives it eulogizes. A number of them are from the 'Awalik, Anwar Al-Awlaki's tribe. Fahd Al-Quso, himself from the 'Awalik, specifically mentions Anwar Al-Awlaki.
For a comprehensive look at the USS Cole bombing, see my earlier report The USS Cole Bombing: what we know today. Excerpt below the fold.
The Cole Bombers
The Yemeni justice system is highly corrupt, politicized and irregular. Thus it is unsurprising that with few exceptions, the Cole plotters and their co-conspirators were given light sentences, were released early, were never charged or escaped jail multiple times. Some convicted terrorists were later given government jobs, money, land and a car in order to facilitate their reintegration into society, the Yemeni government says. The regime defends these actions as a practical way to diminish the threat of future terror attacks. Others see these accommodations as a reward.
The Yemeni government named Jamal Muhammad al-Badawi as the leader of the group, Abdu al-Rahim al-Nashiri as the financier and several others as involved, including two policemen who provided false documents. However shortly after, Mohammed Hamdi al-Ahdal was listed as one of the main operatives and financiers of the plot.
Six convicted Cole conspirators’ appeal verdict was rendered in March of 2005 wherein the Yemeni court reduced Mamoon Amswah’s sentence from eight to five years. The court upheld the death penalty for Abdu al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who is in US custody. Fahd Al-Quso who helped prepare the bombing and was supposed to videotape the explosion had his ten year prison sentence upheld. Ali Mohamed Murakab and Morad al-Sorori both retained five year sentences for forging identification documents.
Jamal al-Badawi was originally sentenced to death by a Yemeni court for his involvement in the attack. The sentence was commuted upon appeal to fifteen years in prison. However, al-Badawi managed to escape from jail twice and is currently at large.
Ten prisoners linked to the USS Cole bombing, including Jamal al-Badawi and Fahd al-Quso, escaped from an Aden jail in 2003. Other 2003 Aden escapees included Khaldoun Al-Hukaimi and Saleh Mana. The pair was reported to have committed suicide attacks in Iraq in 2005, RayNews reported.
After their escape from prison, in May 2003 Jamal Al-Badawi and Fahd al-Quso were indicted on over fifty terror related offenses by a federal grand jury in Manhattan, New York for plotting the attack on the Cole.
Both al-Quso and al-Badawi were recaptured in March 2004. Jamal Al-Badawi escaped from prison again in 2006 along with 17 others involved in the USS Cole bombing. Shortly after the escape, Yemen’s Specialized Penal Court ordered the release of Hadi Saleh Al-Waeli suspected of selling arms, ammunition and explosives to the terrorists who bombed the USS Cole Destroyer at Aden Port in 2000.
In 2003, Yemen arrested Mohammed Hamdi al-Ahdal. On the US list of most wanted terrorists in Yemen. Al-Ahdal is believed to be one of the masterminds of the Cole bombing. Yemen refused to allow US federal investigators access to Al-Ahdal, insisting instead that the FBI submit questions for al-Ahdal in writing. Sources indicated to the Yemen Times that al-Ahdal had confessed to “being in charge of technical and financial preparations” for both the Cole and Limburg attacks. Al-Ahdal was tried and convicted in 2006 on charges of distributing money for al-Qaeda. No charges were brought relating to the Cole bombing. He was sentenced to 37 months in prison, and with time served, was released shortly thereafter. In 2006, Ghalib Al-Zaidi was also charged with harboring al-Ahdal for a month following the Cole bombing; al-Zaidi was sentenced to three years time served and released.
Shocka!! Terrorism Attacks Against U.S. At All-Time High
Obi One and his administration have literally bent over backwards to avoid using the dreaded Islamic terrorists, radical Muslim, etc. words. God forbid if we offend Muslims. Thanks to this administrations perverted rationality, those who want to kill us are more emboldened to do so.

The pace and number of attempted terror attacks against the U.S. over the past nine months has surpassed the number of attempts during any previous one-year period, according to an internal Department of Homeland Security report issued on Friday, May 21.[miss me yet?.....GWB...ed]For all who voted for Obama, are you happy now?
The report notes chillingly that while US officials "lack insights" they believe that "operatives are in the country and could advance plotting with little or no warning."
The DHS "Intelligence Note," a short, non-classified report, makes concrete the concerns of a number of homeland security experts who have discussed with ABC News the pace and nature of the individual attempts. The report notes that al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula and the Pakistani Taliban have "expanded their focus" to include the United States.
Homeland Security and law enforcement officials interviewed by ABC News on the condition their names not be used are concerned that the pace will continue to ramp up and that increasingly the attackers will be difficult-to-detect homegrown extremists.

Good News: Pakistan Releases Jamaat-ud-Daawa Chief Hafiz Saeed
ISLAMABAD: In a verdict that has angered New Delhi, Pakistan's Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a lower court decision to release Jamaat-ud-Daawa chief and 26/11 mastermind, Hafiz Saeed, saying the government had failed to marshal sufficient evidence against him.Because of course it couldn't have really been Jamaat-ud-Daawa who openly calls for and supports Jihad. It was of course a Zionist False Flag Operation.
"The appeals are dismissed," Justice Nasir-ul-Mulk, head of a three-member bench, said. Pakistan's federal government and Punjab provincial government had petitioned the court to overturn Lahore High Court's decision to release Saeed in June 2009 on grounds of insufficient evidence. Defence lawyer, A K Dogar, said the prosecution failed to prove its case.
Hafiz has openly urged jihad
Islamabad: The Mumbai terror carnage mastermind Hafiz Saeed will walk free, Pakistan's apex court ruled on Tuesday. "We cannot usurp the right of freedom of a person on mere assumption," said defence lawyer A K Dogar, quoting the court order.
Prosecutor Saeed Yousuf said authorities didn't give his team enough material to make a better case against Saeed. "We tried our level best on the basis of the documents available." New Delhi was incensed by the move and saw it as part of the pattern of denial followed by Islamabad on the 26/11 attack. "We regard Hafiz Saeed as one of the masterminds of the Mumbai attacks and he has openly urged jihad against India," foreign secretary Nirupama Rao said.

American Hostages in Yemen Freed
Two Americans who recently were kidnapped in Yemen have been freed, said Mohammed Al-Basha, a spokesman for the Yemeni Embassy in Washington.All's well that ends well. Thanks to Yemen for doing the right thing, for once.
Yemeni security authorities surrounded the kidnappers and pressed them to release the hostages, the spokesman said. They are currently safe in Sanaa, the capital, he added.
They arrived at the Interior Ministry Tuesday night, the ministry said.
Their identities have not been made public.
Tribal gunmen kidnapped the two American tourists along with their driver and translator, and demanded the release of a jailed tribesman in return for their captives' freedom, Yemeni officials said Monday.
A senior member of the tribe confirmed that they have released the Americans, their driver and translator.
Sorry Insty for stealing your whole post ;).

Could The Recent Attacks In Afghanistan Been Stopped?
Yes, says Brad Thor.
A team of highly-skilled, clandestine intelligence professionals charged with gathering force protection intelligence passed a series of urgent situation reports (Sitreps) to the U.S. military and Military intelligence in the days leading up to the attacks. We have attached three of these Sitreps, which are considered “must reads” in theater and are referred to as “outside-the-wire” reports. They have been thoroughly redacted and in no way pose any harm to ongoing operations or sources.
You know the rule. Read the rest.

UN To Issue Fatwa For Blasphemy?
Pakistani religious groups that make up the JuD have a great idea. Since Sharia Law is fisabilillah, or in the way of Allah, the one and only to be worshiped.... have you heard of this Allah? Anyway, the great idea is to have the UN enact an international law against blasphemy. Get this, punishable by.....wait for it......death.
"The ambassadors of Muslim and non-Muslim states will be told that blasphemy against prophets not only hurts the feelings of one religion but also sows a seed of hatred against the people of other religions," the meeting observed.

Pakistani Muslim Objects To Destruction of Christian Church
And the results are predictable, lawyers calling for his death and saying they will lynch him if the judge does not.
Clearly the prosecutor is a Misunderstander of Islam, since everyone knows that only greasy Islamophobes believe that Islam carries a death penalty for blasphemy.Religion of the most bloodthirsty zealous prosecutors?
Here is an update on the case of Hector Aleem, the human rights activist who is in jail in Pakistan for objecting to the destruction of a church. There was a hearing in his case on May 19. This report was written by Hector Aleem's daughter, Mehwish AleemThe [prosecuting] Lawyer of Sunni Tehreek has still not arrived from Umrah, that's why his junior lawyer came for the hearing. Daddy was also there, we saw him but we were not able to talk to him because we were in burqas (for security purpose). The junior lawyer started with the sentence: "I can't tolerate to see this blasphemer standing in front of me; I really want to kill him with my own hands" Judge was there but he didn't say anything to stop him from using that kind of language.
Tennessee: Brentwood Mosque A No Go
Which is a good thing. The spokesman, Dr Jaweed Ansari, is a member of the Islamic Medical Association of North America which is connected to the Islamic Society of North America
ISNA focuses heavily on providing Wahhabi theological indoctrination materials to a large percentage of the mosques in North America. Many of these mosques were recently built with Saudi money and are required, by their Saudi benefactors, to strictly follow the dictates of Wahhabi imams -- an edict that affects the tone and content of the sermons given in the mosques, the selection of books and periodicals that may be read in mosque libraries or sold in mosque bookshops, and the policies governing the exclusion or suppression of dissenters from the congregations.Which is connected to the Muslim Brotherhood. We have written numerous articles on both of these organizations and the connection to the online ehadi's.
Brentwood just dodged a dangerous bullet.
Through e-mails, blogs and word of mouth, opponents told friends and neighbors they were suspicious of the mosque and feared its leaders had ties to terrorist organizations. They encouraged citizens to write letters to the city commission expressing their concerns, including worries about traffic and flooding.It didn't state in the article about ISNA, a simple google search of the good doc's name would have found it
On Wednesday night, the mosque's organizers admitted defeat. They withdrew their application to rezone 14 acres on Wilson Pike for a house of worship. Community opposition and the $450,000 cost of building a turn lane made the project untenable.
There comes a time when you have to say, 'We can't do this anymore,' " said Jaweed Ansari, a Brentwood physician and spokesman for the Islamic Center of Williamson County.

German Mercenaries Deploy to Somalia
A force of more than 100 mercenaries, comprised largely of former German soldiers, is deploying to Somalia to overthrow the current internationally-accepted government of President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed.
The mercenaries are under contract to Asgaard German Security Group, run by Thomas Kaltegärtner, a former German officer.
Kaltegärtner said one group was already on its way.So, there you go. Someone really ought to print up an official program to identify all the different groups who are fighting in Somalia. What a toilet.
They will be working for the self-styled ‘elected president of the republic of Somalia’, Galadid Abdinur Ahmad Darman. He rejects the Transitional Federal Government of President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed, which is supported by the international community.
Darman said the Germans would be crucial for his plans to take over the country.

US Following Pirate Ship
They have converted one of the ships they took to a mother ship.
Terror Free Somalia: The M/V Iceberg was identified last week after the USS McFaul conducted a 36-hour surveillance mission, the multi-national Combined Maritime Forces said in a statement. The USS McFaul began shadowing the Panamanian-flagged vessel May 19 before the M/V Iceberg reversed course and began heading toward the Somali coast. "We cannot be sure what the pirates' plan was if they had not been interrupted," said Rear Adm. Beom Rim Lee, commander of the Combined Maritime Forces task force.Apparently the original crew is hostage aboard the vessel. So we can't just sink it.
"The vessel may have been on its way to either assist other pirates in distress, or look for another merchant vessel to attack," he said.
The M/V Iceberg was last been seen off the coast of the Somali town of Garacaad, a known pirate haven, but its exact location was unknown until USS McFaul positively identified it. "Further investigation showed the name of the ship had been crudely painted over" in an effort to disguise it, which caused confusion in identifying it, the Combined Maritime Forces statement said.
Let's Leak Classified Intelligence To NYT's Because Gen Petraeus's Name Is On It
Gawd. Iran is really going to be happy after reading this. Might as well say goodbye to those hikers accused of spying.
WASHINGTON — The top American commander in the Middle East has ordered a broad expansion of clandestine military activity in an effort to disrupt militant groups or counter threats in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia and other countries in the region, according to defense officials and military documents.Whoever leaked this needs to be held accountable dammit.
The secret directive, signed in September by Gen. David H. Petraeus, authorizes the sending of American Special Operations troops to both friendly and hostile nations in the Middle East, Central Asia and the Horn of Africa to gather intelligence and build ties with local forces. Officials said the order also permits reconnaissance that could pave the way for possible military strikes in Iran if tensions over its nuclear ambitions escalate.
While the Bush administration had approved some clandestine military activities far from designated war zones, the new order is intended to make such efforts more systematic and long term, officials said. Its goals are to build networks that could “penetrate, disrupt, defeat or destroy” Al Qaeda and other militant groups, as well as to “prepare the environment” for future attacks by American or local military forces, the document said. The order, however, does not appear to authorize offensive strikes in any specific countries[...]
Several government officials who described the impetus for the order would speak only on condition of anonymity because the document is classified
File this under assmaggots.

PSA: Cooking for the troops logo contest!
Prizes and fun and cool judges! A great cause and a challenging concept!
Montmorenci, IN (PRWEB) May 24, 2010 -- Not many new charities start life with experience and a proven track record and no logo, but Cooking with the Troops Inc. has done just that. Today sees the launch of a nationwide logo contest for a charity that has grown out of a program at Soldiers' Angels, Cooking with the Wounded, and out of barbecues done for the last several years at Walter Reed by "Concrete" Bob Miller. By combining these two efforts, and bringing in a strong commitment to culinary education and careers, the charity aims to support U.S. and Allied troops, their families, and caregivers. Their mission is simple: Provide aid, comfort, and support to US and Allied military troops and families...The Cooking with the Wounded program at Soldiers' Angels grew out of a steak dinner cooked by Blake Powers at Landstuhl, which was dubbed "Cooking for the Wounded." Given the strong desire on the part of some of the wounded to participate, the name was changed to "Cooking with the Wounded" when it became a formal program. The program has drawn a great deal of interest, and the idea to expand it came fairly quickly and the founder of Soldiers' Angels, Patti Patton-Bader, was the first to suggest that it become its own program.Even the judges are neat-o! Read more for the guidelines.
Judging the event will be three very qualified individuals:Have fun!!! More at CWTT

Syria Places Obi-One in the Weak Horse Category
Syrian President Bashar Assad said Monday that the United States has lost its influence in the Middle East due to its failure to contribute to regional peace, in an interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica.Well that's a pretty big FU. Assad, president of one of the most heavily armed Middle Eastern states whines about Arabs having no weapons.
The Syrian leader met on Sunday with French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner in Damascus earlier Sunday and urged the West to "break its silence" in the face of Israeli "aggression" in the Middle East.
During their talks, Assad denounced "the ongoing Israeli threats to ignite wars and undermine the stability in the region."
"The region has changed and the West's policy in the area is no longer acceptable, keeping silent over Israeli violations is no longer acceptable," Assad told Kouchner, according to Syria's official news agency SANA.
"Did Israel ever stop arming itself, did it stop instigating violence or making military maneuvers," Foreign Minister Walid Moallem said after meeting his German counterpart Guido Westerwelle. "Why are arms forbidden to Arabs and allowed to Israel?"That is almost laughable. During the cold war Syria was the go to ME client of the USSR. They have a large conventional and chemical capability.
It appears Assad has Obama pegged as the weak horse. Arabs never follow the weak horse.
Obama will have to respond strongly if he is to keep the label from sticking.

CAIR vs Tennessee Tea Party
In a stirring piece of Orwellian propaganda, CAIR cautioned the group via press release:It is none of CAIR's business who this tea party invites, doesn't invite etc.
“The Tea Party needs to decide whether it is a legitimate national political movement or just a safe haven for bigots and extremists,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “We ask that convention organizers not legitimize [Pamela]Geller’s extremist anti-Muslim rhetoric by offering her an official platform.”
I suppose they didn't get the message regarding Everyone Draw Mohammed Day. We will not be silenced by Islamic extremists. No how, no shape, no way. Enough is enough.
Venezuelan "Preventive Confiscation" Program
(Caracas, Venezuela) President Hugo Chavez is disturbed that price controls on food in his nascent socialist utopia have resulted in empty store shelves reminiscent of the former Soviet Union. To correct the situation, Chavez has launched a "preventive confiscation" program, using the Venezuelan National Guard.
Armed guardsmen now forcefully seize merchandise (foodstuffs) from producers to prevent empty shelves, presumably. The official reasons for the confiscation program are arguably innovative.
Afghanistan Spy Agency Accuses Pakistan ISI For Attacks That Killed 6 NATO Soldiers
KABUL, Afghanistan — A spokesman for Afghanistan’s intelligence agency on Monday accused Pakistan’s intelligence agency of involvement in the suicide bombing here last week that killed six NATO soldiers, including four colonels.Hmmmm.
While Saeed Ansari, the spokesman for Afghanistan’s National Directorate of Security, its spy agency, did not mention Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence agency by name, he left no doubt who he meant.
The remarks came in a press conference announcing the arrests of seven suspects as the organizers of the attack last Tuesday on a convoy of armored S.U.V.s by a suicide bomber in a minivan full of explosives. The blast killed 18 people, including a Canadian and an American colonel, two American lieutenant colonels and their two American drivers, as well as 12 Afghan civilians. They were also charged with involvement in a series of other suicide attacks in Kabul that killed another 25 persons.
“All the explosions and terrorist attacks by these people were plotted from the other side of the border and most of the explosives and materials used for the attacks were brought from the other side to Afghanistan,” Mr. Ansari said.
“Of course when we say that those attacks were plotted from the other side of the border, the intelligence service of our neighboring country has definitely had its role in equipping and training of this group,” Mr. Ansari said.
A Win For The Good Guys
We all are aware that war leads to difficult situations. In regard to detainees, we've seen terrorists released only to strike again.

Heartache: House Kills Plan To Close GITMO
President Obama's hopes of closing Guantánamo, which were already gravely wounded by his inability to meet his self-imposed deadline of a year for the prison's closure, now appear to have been killed off by lawmakers in Congress.Laughing.me.arse.off.
Although the House Armed Services Committee was happy to authorize, by 59 votes to 0, a budget of over $700 billion for war ($567 billion for "defense spending" and $159 billion for the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq) for the fiscal year beginning in October, lawmakers unanimously saw through -- and turned down -- a fraction of this budget for what the administration had labeled a "transfer fund" -- money intended to close Guantánamo and buy a new prison in Illinois for prisoners designated for trials or for indefinite detention without charge or trial.
The administration had attempted to hide its intentions behind this vague wording, because senior officials were acutely aware of ferocious opposition in Congress to the closure of Guantánamo. Fueled by opportunistic Republicans and backed by cowardly Democrats, Congress had only been prevented at the last minute from passing an insane law last year, which would have prevented the administration from bringing any prisoner to the U.S. mainland for any reason (even to face a trial) and had only relented in October, allowing prisoners to be brought to the U.S. mainland for trials, but not for any other purpose.
Despite this, the House Armed Services Committee is now trying to withdraw from even this concession to the administration's aims, including, in a summary of the bill, a prohibition on using even the tiniest fraction of the war budget (around $350 million) to buy a new detention facility. As Spencer Ackerman explained in the Washington Independent.
This is a depressing example of how even a morally and ethically flawed attempt to close Guantánamo is unacceptable to both Republican and Democrat lawmakers, who have retreated to a position that the Bush administration, at its most extreme, would have been proud of.
This video is a mirror of one repeatedly flagged, falsely, by Islamist activists, as hate speech. We'll see how long it takes YouTube to cave.
Pro-Burqa Demonstrators Banned in Brussels
(Brussels, Belgium) Sharia4Belgium demonstrators have been denied permission to rally in Brussels to protest the pending ban against wearing the full-face Islamic burqa in public.
As a result, Sharia4Belgium organizer Abu Imran promised demonstrations at Belgium embassies throughout Europe, mentioning London, Dublin and Switzerland.
Authorities banned the Brussels protest for fear of "public order problems." The burqa ban is not yet in effect since it must be approved by the Belgium Senate.
The burqa debate is also raging in France, where the cabinet on Wednesday approved a draft law to ban the Muslim full-face veil from public spaces, opening the way for the text to go before parliament in July.Pretty audacious, I'd say. Muslims are resisted while trying to impose Sharia law on unwilling Europeans so they claim they are being oppressed.
On its Internet website Sharia4Islam denounced "European oppression" of Muslims and called for the installation of Islamic Sharia law throughout Europe.
Americans Kidnapped in Yemen
A tribal group kidnapped an American couple visiting Yemen, ABC News reports. The couple's Yemeni driver, Ali al-Arashi, was also taken hostage. In a phone call to AFP, al Arashi said, "They are calling for the release of a fellow tribesman held by authorities in Sanaa." The tribesman is being detained over a land dispute. In the absence of a functional judiciary system, and in response to state hostage taking, Yemeni tribes have a long history of taking foreign hostages to press their demands from the state. No tribal hostages have been hurt in over one hundred of foreigner kidnappings in the last two decades.
In three instances kidnap victims were harmed in Yemen. The first occurred in 1998, when the al Qaeda linked Aden Abyan Islamic Army kidnapped 16 westerners, and four were killed in a botched rescue attempt. In 2000, a Norwegian diplomat was killed in crossfire with extremists. In June 2009, nine westerners were kidnapped in the war torn Sa'ada province with the likely perpetrators al Qaeda or drug smugglers. Three nurses were killed immediately. Earlier this month Saudi forces rescued two of the German children in Yemeni territory. The fate of their parents, younger brother and a British engineer kidnapped at the same time is unknown.
Al Qaeda in Yemen Love Letters to Salafi Group in Gaza Intercepted
Haaretz has published details of another communication from the Shia Houthi rebels in Yemen which exposes an al Qaeda in Yemen training manual sent to terrorists in Gaza about how to build a light airplane for a terror attack using an automobile motor.
In several earlier communications, a person identifying himself as Ali Hussein and representing himself as a member of the Houthi rebels sent scanned copies of intercepted communications from al Qaeda in Yemen to an anti-Hamas Salafi group in Gaza.
Al Qaeda in Yemen is planning to send Somalis refugees from Yemen to Gaza through Egypt for attacks. The terror group also discussed launching a rocket from Saudi Arabia on a nuclear reactor in Israel. The Houthis, in sending the letters, are trying to demonstrate the difference between their ideology and al Qaeda's in a bid to elicit support for their cause, which they say is an end to discrimination by the Yemeni government.

Assalaamu alaykum,He is speaking of Debbie Schussel, hence the extremism link.

2) to show the racist in America (i.e. because she is Arab, she must support extremism, etc.)
3) to show that even when he go far down [the pole??...ed] and become Muslim by name only (as she has become), they are still not satisfied until we become one of them
Asudullah is a murtad like the rest of them on the forum, they like pole dancers/nekid women. May Allah curse them to hellfire and make them drink boiling water and all that bad stuff ....Insha'Allah.
Remember Omar the goat humping Bakri Mohammed's daughter Yasmin Fastok? She is another pole dancer:
The akhis on the forums REALLY like her, especially Zach "Abu Talhah al-Amrikee" Chesser. Wink wink Zachs wife Umm Talha. Maybe you better take up pole dancing eh? Or do you already do that? Oh wait, you are a common farm animal so it would be kinda hard...my bad.
Somalia: AlQaeda Linked Al Shabaab Bans Prayer Beads/New York: Student Suspended For Wearing Rosary Beads
Dang, those Islamic prayers beads/Catholic rosary beads will get you in trouble every time. /sarc off...
Al-Shabaab and Hizbu Islam, the two Islamist groups vehemently opposing the Transitional Federal Government in Somalia, have prohibited the use of prayer beads in the areas controlled by the movements. They assert that the practice of using beads is bid’a (new introduction to Islamic ways).I certainly hope none had their hand cut off for using them.
Although never declared, residents in areas ruled by Al-Shabaab and Hizbu Islam admit that hundreds of people were apprehended, warned or harmed for having and using the device.
A devout Catholic teenager was suspended for the crime of bringing his rosary beads to school. The school claimed it could be showing gang affiliation or endangering “the safety, health, morals or welfare of himself or others”Gang affiliation? Morals? Oh my...that's a new twist on Catholicism.

WaPo Writer Caught Shading Truth About Texas Textbook Changes
In a scathing indictment, Ann Althouse bitchslaps a Washington Post writer who mischaracterized the changes approved in the Texas high school textbook nontroversy (to use one of dear Chuckie's coinages).
Here's how the Washington Post's Michael Birnbaum characterizes the changes, secure in the knowledge that the sheep who depend on WaPo for news will never second guess him:
The new standards say that the McCarthyism of the 1950s was later vindicated -- something most historians deny -- draw an equivalency between Jefferson Davis's and Abraham Lincoln's inaugural addresses, say that international institutions such as the United Nations imperil American sovereignty, and include a long list of Confederate officials about whom students must learn.Here's how Althouse deals with Birnbaum's first fudgy "fact:"
They also removed references to capitalism and replaced them with the term "free-enterprise system."
The students are required to "describe how McCarthyism, the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), the arms race, and the space race increased Cold War tensions and how the later release of the Venona Papers confirmed suspicions of communist infiltration in U.S. government..." The word "vindicated" is inflammatory and unfair.To see how Ann calls out Birnbaum on the rest of his mischaracterizations (some would call them "lies"), read the rest.
Anwar Al Awlaki New Video Advocates Killing Of American Civilians/Killing of Fellow Soldiers by Muslims Serving in the Military
Jihadist forums, such as this one, announced the AQAP (alQaeda in the Arabic Pennisula) release of Awlaki interview, gave download links and voila it's on JihadTube. Then on to embedding on websites such as this one.
Same ole kill stuff & praise for those doing the attempted/killing. It's in Arabic but never fear, someone will translate it soon.(Video with English subtitles)
[...]"Those who might be killed in a plane are merely a drop of water in a sea," he said in the video in response to a question about Muslim groups that disapproved of the airliner plot because it targeted civilians.
Al-Awlaki used the 45-minute video to justify civilian deaths — and encourage them — by accusing the United States of intentionally killing a million Muslim civilians in Iraq, Afghanistan and elsewhere.
American civilians are to blame, he said, because "the American people, in general, are taking part in this and they elected this administration and they are financing the war."
He added that the Prophet Muhammad also sent forces into battles that claimed civilian lives.[Trying to smooth things over - Mo ordained it so it's OK...ed]
The video was produced by the media arm of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula, though the exact nature of al-Awlaki's ties with the group and possible direct role in it are unclear. The U.S. says he is an active participant in the group, though members of his tribe have denied that. [It's called Taqiyya ― Islamic Principle of Lying for the Sake of Allah]
For its part, al-Qaida appears to be trying to make use of his recruiting power by putting him in its videos. Its media arm said Sunday's video was its first interview with the cleric.Splode him already.
Update: Awlaki also is encouraging Muslims to kill fellow soldiers as Nidal Hasan did at Ft Hood
A radical U.S.-born Muslim cleric is urging Muslims serving in the U.S. Army to kill American soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.Gibbs was quick to point out today: "U.S. is actively searching for Awlaki". One should search under the bed of Yemeni President Saleh.... Awlaki should be there with his prostitutes
In a video posted Sunday on Islamist militant websites, Anwar al-Awlaki said he justifies the deaths of U.S. soldiers because Americans have intentionally killed what he said were millions of Muslim civilians in Afghanistan and Iraq.

America under Obamacare: Florida hospital begins starving 83 year-old woman to death against family wishes
Who needs government death panels when hospitals have their own? A Florida court has issued an emergency order directing the hospital be begin giving food and water to the patient in question after public interest law firm Liberty Counsel and attorney John Stemberger (from the Rifqa Bary case) intervened at the request of the woman's family:
Today, a judge in Brevard County, Florida issued an emergency injunction ordering a hospital to provide food and water to an eighty-three-year-old woman.
Carrie Johnson recently suffered several strokes and was hospitalized. Against the objections of her son and granddaughter, the hospital stopped giving her food and water.
Liberty Counsel attorneys and attorney John Stemberger, representing Johnson's son and granddaughter, worked through the night to prepare a case to present to the judge this morning.
Johnson did not execute a Durable Power of Attorney or any directive prior to her hospitalization. Throughout her life, Johnson told her son and granddaughter that she wanted to be kept alive with basic medical intervention and treatment, including artificially provided food and water, if she became unable to care for herself.
On May 18, the Hospital terminated food and water to Johnson. She is beginning to show signs of severe dehydration, including severely cracked lips and discoloration. She is in pain.
After the hearing today, the Judge called the Hospital to advise that the Order to reestablish food and water was on its way and the Hospital should obey it. The administrator on duty said it would be "passed up to someone higher." When the attorney hand delivered the emergency Order to the Hospital this afternoon, the Hospital authorities escorted him off the property. It is still not clear whether the Hospital has obeyed the Order.
Wonder where the Florida pols are on this?
Update: Liberty Counsel provides some additional background on this case (HT - RudyFox in the comments):
The Hospital pointed to an alleged Power of Attorney purportedly executed by Johnson after her hospitalization, which was produced by Brenda Johnson and Mamie Williams, Johnson's daughters. Mamie is a beneficiary under a life insurance policy held by Johnson. Barbara Butler saw the alleged Power of Attorney and immediately realized that the purported signature of Johnson is a forgery. Barbara Butler is very familiar with Johnson’s signature and handwriting and is certain that the signature is not Johnson's signature. Moreover, the Power of Attorney form was purportedly signed by Johnson well after her hospitalization, at a time when she was unable physically to sign it or mentally to understand the meaning and impact of her actions. However, when confronted by Barbara Butler, the Hospital refused to respond to the pleas of the son and granddaughter.

Facebooks Everybody Draw Mohammed Day
Interview with Administrator
An administrator of the Facebook group "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day" spoke with RFE/RL about the online campaign, in which users were asked to submit cartoons of Prophet Muhammad. Speaking from Germany, 28-year-old Andy Freiheit, a German citizen using a pseudonym for safety reasons, discusses freedom of the press, religious sensitivity, and the global attention given to the Facebook campaign. The interview was conducted by RFE/RL Central Newsroom correspondent Kristin Deasy and RFE/RL Radio Mashaal correspondent Maliha Amirzada.Be sure to read the rest.
RFE/RL: When did you become in charge of the group? How long ago was that?
Freiheit: I [was put] in charge of the group probably the 10th or 11th of May.
RFE/RL: Has Facebook contacted you?
Freiheit: Oh yeah, but not in a negative way. They've just tried to verify that we are who we said we are. So we had to make a blog -- because the initial information, basically, was [attributed] to Molly Norris [a Seattle cartoonist who drew a poster of a fictional group, Citizens Against Citizens Against Humor, declaring May 20 "Everybody Draw Muhammad Day"], and she [later] left the group [and withdrew from the campaign], so we had to just change that. But anything else than that, no. I know the group's been reported like 100,000 times, but Facebook did not block the entire thing, like Google would have done, or whoever else cares more about money than civil rights.... I think it was because...our earlier moderators' accounts got hacked and they had to verify, because suddenly one of the guys, instead of logging in from Madrid, was logging in from Karachi, Pakistan. And you don't move 5,000 miles in an hour.
RFE/RL: Have you received any direct threats?
Freiheit: No, not me personally. I haven't received any threats to my person. They don't know my name. But we've received general threats to the admins and moderators of the group. But we take measures.... We have fake accounts.... We have proxies on our Internet and stuff[...]
RFE/RL: Here's a tough question for you: How would you feel if there were some deaths related to this activity?
Freiheit: We've actually discussed it, and we discussed if that was a risk we were willing to take. And, to be honest...if those guys kill anyone, then that's not something we've done. That's something we just have to put forward and show people. They wanted to kill Lars Vilks, the Swedish professor, just a few days ago! They've killed [Dutch film director Theo] van Gogh. They've tried to kill [Danish cartoonist] Kurt Westergaard. This happens; it has to be shown to get reactions. I actually think they will kill someone.... Someone will...make [someone] a scapegoat or whatever.
That's just the problem. If we say no, we have to stop the group, because we've gotten death threats and people are going to be killed. What message does that send? That sends, "Oh, yeah, we can get our way if we come with death threats, if we just kill someone, then they will stop." It's a dilemma; I can be honest about that. It's not something that's easily decided. But we've come to the conclusion that if someone is killed, then we're not to blame.[More...]
Oh, and Ali Hassan is still a pussie
Facebooks Everyone Draw Mohammed Day Computer Hacked
Everybody Draw Mohammed Day creator’s computer hacked. On May 20, 2010, The Jewish Business Magazine was able to interview the creator the blog and Facebook page, Everybody Draw Mohammed Day, Andy. Andy told the Jewish Business Magazine that his goal was to create discourse and free speech in the world around Islam.Now is the time to figure out who Ali Hassan is. Anyone know? Send tips to me, Stable Hand (contact above on contact link) or any other Jawa blogger. Enough is enough.
He couldn’t stand the past aggressions and threats of violence by the Muslim extremist over things as stupid as the writing of the word ALA or an artistic depiction or worse, a cartoon, of Mohammed their prophet. Now, the Everybody Draw Mohammed Day creator’s computer has been hacked by an Islam extremist who calls himself, Ali Hassan.
This morning, I engaged Mr. Ali Hassan via Andy’s Skype account and asked him some questions. Ali Hassan, the hacker of Everybody Draw Mohammed Day claims he did this because he is a Muslim and offended about the depiction of his prophet, Mohammed. Hassan also claims to have Andy’s address, but did not offer any insight as to what he plans to use it for.
Make my day Ali Hassan, I am waiting coward.......Pussie afraid of a female? Where is my damn fatwa Ali? I deserve it........I even made a video...
You are a coward hiding behind Islam..I will give you my address...we will meet one on one...pussie..
Kiss my butt Ali Hassan:
Now that I am done, it is time for a friendly talk Ali...........
Has APPLE Submitted To Islam?
Apparently so, Apple pulls iSlam Muhammed app.
WTF? This is nucking futz.
iSlam Muhammad apparently depicted images of the prophet Muhammad (forbidden by Islam) and outlined disturbing passages from the Qur'an. It's surprisingly similar to BibleThumper, a Christian-bashing app that remains in the App Store.
I will not submit, no how, no way, not ever, enough is enough...this goes beyond Everyone Draw Mohammed Day...
FOX NEWS REPORTS EXCLUSIVE ON AL-QAEDA IMAM ANWAR AL-AWLAKI'S ARRESTS FOR SOLICITING PROSTITUTES (except you read it here at Jawa last November)
Fox News is reporting today an exclusive about Anwar al-Awlaki's arrests for soliciting prostitutes while he was in San Diego and Northern Virginia as part of their larger story on the Al-Qaeda imam that aired last night.
This is a stunning (and salacious!) development; except, of course, Jawa readers heard about it right here last November ("Al-Qaeda imam emailing Ft Hood killer was repeatedly arrested for soliciting prostitutes").

EPIC FAIL: Al Qaeda Work Accident: Key Al Qaeda In The Arabic Peninsula (AQAP) Figure Accidentally Blows Himself Up "Messing With A Bomb"
A man whom the U.S. described as a key figure in Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula accidentally blew himself up, U.S. military officials told Fox News.This makes my day or eh night, thanks Pizza the Hut...
The officials say Nayif Al-Qahtani was "messing with a bomb" when it went off. U.S. officials had been watching him, but Fox News' sources insist the U.S. had nothing to do with his death[Of course not, he was a idiot...ed]
Al-Qahtani was "a vibrant guy linked to ongoing operations planning, and his death will have an impact," one official told Fox News.
An Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula newsletter was the first to announce his death a week after the United States put terror sanctions on him. The newsletter did not say when it happened but said Al-Qahtani died in Yemen's Abyan province in the south of the country.
The State Department recently described al-Qahtani as "a liaison between Al Qaeda cells in Yemen and Saudi Arabia." It said he manages Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's operations in Yemen and receives financial support from abroad to launch attacks in both Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
When was the last time anyone saw a work accident coming from alQaeda? Normally you see this from the Taliban/Hamas etc.
This is so sweet I can't control myself.
Epic LULZ as Pizza the Hut commented.
Texas Man Fakes His Way Into U.S. Army
An undated photo of Jesse Bernard Johnston III, 26, wearing a Marine dress uniform with ribbons and medals -- even though records show he never served in the Marine Corps.Nothing has changed, even after 13 people were murdered by domestic Islamic terrorist Nidal Hasan. Background checks go by the wayside?
FORT WORTH, Texas — A Texas man with no military experience tricked the Army into letting him enter a reserve unit as a noncommissioned officer earlier this year, a deception that placed an untrained soldier in a leadership position in a time of war, an Associated Press investigation has found.Gawd, dumb and dumber running the show.
The revelation comes just months after the Army drew criticism for failing to flag the suspicious activities of the Army psychiatrist now charged with killing 13 and wounding dozens of others at Fort Hood.
The case, detailed in court records and other documents examined by the AP, raises more questions about the Army's ability to vet soldiers' backgrounds as it faces continued pressure from Congress over its screening and records system. While the soldier never deployed overseas, some say the case demonstrates how easily someone could pose as a member of the U.S. military.
'Reason to believe' Pakistani Taliban plotting to strike U.S.
Maybe the Times Sqaure plot wasnt a one off after all..
U.S. intelligence has strong reason to believe that the Pakistani Taliban is actively plotting to hit interests in the U.S. and American targets overseas, a U.S. official told CNN Thursday.
The concerns about the group that authorities say directed the Times Square bombing plot are coming from multiple streams of information, including from Faisal Shahzad, the Times Square bombing suspect, the official said.
The official told CNN that CIA Director Leon Panetta and National Security Adviser Jim Jones relayed the new terror threat information to Pakistan's government on their trip there earlier this week.
The threat information was not down to the level of specific cities, the official said.
Times Square Bombing Investigation Focuses on Suspected Role of Pakistani Army Major
The focus is shifting to inside Pakistan and this army Major in the Time Square bomb plot.
U.S. and Pakistani investigators are pursuing a new lead in the failed Times Square bombing: That a major in Pakistan’s army knew of Faisal Shahzad’s plans to attack U.S. targets months before Shahzad tried to ignite a car bomb in the heart of New York City.Something of interest to those who follow this stuff closely.....there is a new player being used in the hunt...the major wasn't picked up by the ISI but by Pakistani Military Inelligence.
Investigators believe the major, who is suspected of having ties to the Pakistani Taliban, did not tell Pakistani authorities about preparations for an attack and may even have aided the plotters, officials said Thursday.
Pakistani authorities arrested the military officer this week, officials said. U.S. investigators have been told by Pakistani officials that the major learned of Shahzad's plans from another suspect who is accused of funding the operation, according to a senior U.S. anti-terror official.
The major has since resigned from the military, said the official, who requested anonymity because the case remains open.
It is not yet clear whether Shahzad and the major had any direct contact, the senior official said. The former military man was arrested not by the ISI, Pakistan's most powerful spy agency, but by a military intelligence service. While the ISI has played a central role in the Times Square investigation and in other major terror cases, the spy service and other branches of the security forces have also periodically been accused of colluding with Islamic extremists.Someone finally got a clue..

Rajput Catering Firm In Pakistan Tied To Failed Times Square VBIED?
ISLAMABAD - The U.S. Embassy warned Friday that terrorist groups may have "established links" to a high-class catering company in Pakistan that a security official said is owned by a suspect arrested over the failed car bombing in Times Square.
In an unusual e-mail message to U.S. residents in Pakistan, the embassy said U.S. government personnel had been instructed to avoid using the Hanif Rajput Catering Service, a well-known firm often used by foreign embassies in Islamabad. The U.S. embassy said the suspicions about the catering company have been shared with Pakistan government agencies.
The message said Rajput was owned by Rana Ashraf Khan and his son Salman Ashraf.
Earlier this week, a senior security official said that one of at least two people arrested in Pakistan over links to a Pakistani-American detained in connection with the failed Times Square car bombing was called Salman Ashraf. He identified him as the son of the owner of Rajput catering service.
Salman Ashraf Khan (Vice President)Indeed it has.....in our part of the country too
Mr. Salman Ashraf Khan joined the family business after completing his education from Houston, Texas, U.S.A, in 2001. Currently working as the Vice President of the organization, he has taken on many roles during the last several years, including that of Manager Sales and Manager Operations.
Ever-since his affiliation with the organization, he has brought about enormously significant changes to the product/service design, workplace atmosphere and operational efficiency. In-fact it was Mr. Salman's genius that breathed new fire into out-door catering in our part of the country.

Hey, Dubai, how's that shariah compliant finance going? Dubai World restructures $23.5 billion in debt
The shell game that is shariah compliant finance is coming to an end, "Dubai World reaches $23.5b debt deal with banks":
Government-owned conglomerate Dubai World said on Thursday “headline economic terms” have been agreed in principle with its financial creditors on the restructuring of $23.5 billion of liabilities.
The agreement was reached between the Coordinating Committee (CoCom) representing 60 per cent of Dubai World’s creditors and the Government of Dubai.
Since Dubai World presented its restructuring proposal on March 24, the company has refined the proposal to “modestly enhance” one component of the repayment package, it said in a statement.
Dubai World is the group that tried to take over six US ports in 2006 and is the developer of the Palm Islands project.
Michael Waller & Frank Gaffney on Mexico's Immigration Law Hypocrisy
With the over-the-top criticisms of the new Arizona immigration law coming from the Mexican president and the Obama Administration (who admit they haven't yet read it), commentators in print, online and on talk radio have used as source material a Center for Security Policy research paper called, "Mexico's Glass House" by Dr. J. Michael Waller. In 2006, Professor Waller did another study of both the Mexican Constitution and its law in regards to its immigration policy, La Ley General de Poblacion. He found that Mexican law was far tougher-- in every respect-- than anything being proposed in the United States. The conclusion, of course, is that, to La Raza, the Mexican government and the American left, it is only American sovereignty that's the problem.
Today on Secure Freedom Radio, Dr. Waller suggests a common immigration law, based on Mexico's, that would apply to the US, Mexico and Canada in much the same way as NAFTA's trade rules apply. Possibly the threat of such legislation would be enough to change Mexico's national interest in seeing as many of its poorer and less-skilled citizens deport themselves across their northern border.
Obama misses self-imposed deadline for withdrawal of US troops from Iraq
As this video shows, Obama promised during the campaign that on his first day in office he would initiate a draw down of US troops from Iraq, with all troops gone within 16 months of his first term.

Michael Totten: The Obama Administration's "Moderate" Hezbollah snipe hunt
Michael Totten nails it at Commentary on the Obama Administration's intentions to engage the "moderate elements" of the terrorist group Hezbollah:
John Brennan, deputy national security adviser for homeland security, has come up with a new way to waste the foreign-policy establishment’s time — locate the so-called “moderate elements” within Hezbollah and somehow promote them.
“There is [sic] certainly the elements of Hezbollah that are truly a concern to us what [sic] they’re doing,” he said. “And what we need to do is to [sic] find ways to diminish their influence within the organization and to try to build up the more moderate elements.”
There are no moderates within Hezbollah, at least not any who stand a chance of changing Hezbollah’s behavior. Sure, the terrorist militia has sent a handful of its members to parliament, as Brennan says, and once in a while they sound more reasonable than its secretary-general, Hassan Nasrallah, but these people are employees. They don’t make policy.
If you want to catch a glimpse of Hezbollah’s org chart, just rent a car in Beirut and drive south. You’ll see billboards and posters all over the place in the areas Hezbollah controls. Some show the portraits of “martyrs” killed in battle with Israel. Others show the mug shots of Hezbollah’s leadership, most prominently Nasrallah and his deceased military commander, truck bomber, and airplane hijacker Imad Mugniyeh. Alongside the pictures of Hezbollah’s leaders, you’ll also see Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, the two “supreme guides” of the Islamic Republic regime in Iran.
Daughters of German Protestant missionaries kidnapped in Yemen returning home after year in captivity, two year-old brother presumed murdered
The Middle East press is reporting that two German girls kidnapped in Yemen a year ago have been freed and are on their way home. The girls, four and six (considered marriage age in Yemen), are lucky to be alive as their two year-old brother is presumed dead. Three others were who were captured at the same time were found executed, and a fourth adult is also presumed dead.
The two daughters of the German family kidnapped in Yemen nearly a year ago and rescued by Saudi forces on Monday now speak virtually only Arabic, their uncle said, indicating they have been separated from their parents for months.
Lydia and Anna Hentschel, who are six and four, were flown back to Germany in a military plane on Wednesday after being freed in a Saudi operation in the border region between Yemen and Saudi Arabia.
The fate of their parents, Johannes and Sabine Hentschel, remains unknown. The devout Christians had worked in a Protestant-run hospital in Sa’ada in the north-west of the country since 2003. Their son, Simon, who would be less than two years old, is believed to have died, said their uncle, Reinhard Pötschke, a priest. He said that only Lydia still speaks a little German.
The family was seized by gunmen on June 12 while on an excursion with two female German Bible students, a British engineer and a female South Korean teacher. The two students and the teacher were found three days later, executed with shots to the head. The fate of the engineer is unknown.
But don't get too excited, because it seems that the kidnappings and murders were their own fault for daring to breath word of their Christian faith:
The brutality and length of this hostage drama may be explained by media reports that Mr Hentschel had been trying to convert Muslims to the Christian faith.
Der Spiegel, a leading German news magazine, reported that Johannes Hentschel had been threatened after he spoke to a Muslim man about religion in a teahouse in Sa’ada. In a letter sent to friends in Germany, Mr Hentschel had said: “I encouraged him to read the Bible,” Der Spiegel reported.
The man’s brother later approached Mr Hentschel in the hospital where he worked and had threatened to complain to religious authorities about him. Mr Hentschel appears to have paid little attention to the warning. “Pray for his faith,” he said in his letter, “and that he comes to the faith and accepts Jesus as his lord.”
German authorities believe that the Germans in Sa’ada were regarded as Christian missionaries. Missionary writings were found in the belongings of the Bible students who were shot dead.
Meaning: the missionaries working at the Protestant hospital had it coming. The Middle East media at work, ladies and gentlemen.
Abu Dhabi: Woman who reported gang rape charged with illegal sex
Authorities are prosecuting two of the rapists AND the rape victim.
An 18-year-old Emirati woman has been charged with having sex outside of wedlock after reporting that she was raped by six men, Abu Dhabi’s Criminal Court was told yesterday.
The men, only two of whom were in court yesterday, are charged with raping LH in the back seat of one of the defendant’s vehicles. Both men pleaded not guilty, while L H, who has been taken into custody, also pleaded not guilty to the charges against her.
The woman and one of her male Emirati friends, HA, went for a drive in his vehicle on May 2, prosecutors said. The charges allege that because she had agreed to be in the car, the two had, therefore, met to have sex. According to court records, HA, 19, called five of his friends – four Emiratis and one Iraqi – and invited them to join him.
Prosecutors said that after HA and the woman had sex in an unknown location in Abu Dhabi, the five men met up with them. At that point, the charges say, the men all raped her in HA’s car.
No doubt the men were only responding to the West's provocation of publishing images of the Prophet.
In other news, the same newspaper reported back in January that more than half of women in the Emirates would not report a rape. Connection? As a side note, the newspaper's poll subject pool was more than two-thirds men.

Blair to resign as US top spy: ABC News
Mulitple news reports he has resigned or will resign.
WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama's Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair will resign as soon as Friday, ABC News reported, saying the top US spy had lost the full confidence of the White House.
Blair, who as DNI coordinates 16 US intelligence agencies, met Obama in the Oval Office on Thursday and offered to resign, and the president said he would accept, ABC said.
Obama had held "serious conversations" about whether to ask Blair to step down for and had interviewed possible replacements, the report said.
Blair's departure would come after a rocky period which has seen questions raised over US intelligence, following the failed Christmas Day attack on a US airliner, the Fort Hood shootings and the Times Square Bombing.

It is a testament to just how tone-deaf and/or brain-dead the Obama administration is that - in the midst of a campaign to reassure American Jews that the administration is not really trying to destroy Israel - their thin-skinned expert on all things terrorism-related has put forward the proposition that there exists such a thing as "moderate Hizballah" with whom the administration can play nice:
(Reuters) Adam Entous - The Obama administration is looking for ways to build up "moderate elements" within Lebanese Hizbullah, John Brennan, assistant to the president for homeland security and counterterrorism, said on Tuesday. "There are certainly the elements of Hizbullah that are truly a concern to us....And what we need to do is to find ways to diminish their influence within the organization and to try to build up the more moderate elements," Brennan said. Hizbullah is branded a "foreign terrorist organization" by the U.S.
Let the record show that
1. Hizballah is not an Lebanese organization, it is the Lebanese unit of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps and it answers to the commands of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
2. The Obama administration knows this (point 1) and can be safely assumed to have entered into this relationship with an understanding of what it is they are doing.
3. Despite protestations to the contrary, the Obama administration does in fact appear to be deeply committed to Israel's destruction.
4. There are moderate Hizballah like there were moderate Nazis - either way Jews died by the million.
5. Never again.
Zombie on Draw Mo Day
So you can see the urge of every sane-minded Westerner to say a hearty Fuck you! to anyone who tries to erode away the bedrock of our free society. The more insistent (and violent) these attempts at erosion, the less civil the resistance will become. Which is exactly as it should be. If the Islamists want us to to stop mocking (or even questioning) Mohammed, they can achieve this goal quite simply: Just go away and leave us alone. Don’t bother us, and we won’t bother you. Seriously, 99% of non-Muslims don’t give a good goddamn about Mohammed one way or the other, and we’d gladly ignore him and his followers until the end of time – if they’d just stop trying to boss us around. But if someone comes to our safe haven and tries to impose a repressive or restrictive rule on us, then that is the exact rule we’re going to flout until the interlopers learn their lesson: We don’t take kindly to bullshit medieval religious oppression in these parts.That's a great point. Every time Muslims show outrage over this or that it just serves to promote more of the stuff they get outraged over. A self promoting circle. However if they would get smart and just ignore it, it would fade away. What fun is it to offend someone who doesn't care much?
Outrage and death threats only serve to force others to respond.
Oh and by the way, can I have my Fatwa now?

Revolution Muslim: Tomorrow Is A Nice Day To Supplicate For The Destruction Of The Kuffar
Please take tomorrow May 20, 2010 as a special day to make many supplications incessantly for the destruction of the kuffar, their armies, their embassies, their flags, their military bases, their houses, their security, their disgusting way of life. May Allah (swt) punish them continuously, destroy their buildings, foil their plans and resurrect this jihad until even the eskimos must remove their sleds from the path of Allah's auliyya and mujahideen, amin!Knock your foreheads out in your super duper Du'as, we won't mind.

'Everybody Draw Mohammed' Day Unleashes Facebook Fracas (Update)
What started out as a cartoonist's call to action against censorship -- an open invitation to submit caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad -- has led to death threats, a court order to temporarily block parts of the website in Pakistan and a call for a boycott of Facebook to protest what Muslims believe is blasphemy.What fracas? We are standing up for Freedom of Speech.

Pakistan arrests army officer linked to Times Square bomb suspect
Word comes via the LATimes of the arrest of a Pakistani Army Major in connection with the Times Square bomb plot.
Reporting from Islamabad, PakistanThe plot thickens...
Investigators have arrested a Pakistani army major linked to the prime suspect in the botched attempt to bomb New York City's Times Square early this month, Pakistani law enforcement sources said Tuesday.
The major's involvement with suspect Faisal Shahzad, who was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport as he attempted to fly to Dubai, United Arab Emirates, remains unclear. Law enforcement sources said the major had met Shahzad, a naturalized U.S. citizen of Pakistani descent, in Islamabad, the capital, and was in cellphone contact with him.
The major's arrest marks the first time someone in Pakistan's military establishment has been directly linked to the case. The sources would not say when the alleged meeting and phone calls between Shahzad and the major took place, or what was discussed. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak about the investigation.

Social Media Scams
"What type of STAR WARS character are you? Find out with our quiz! All of your friends have taken it!" Hmm, this sounds interesting, so you enter your info and cell number, as instructed. After a few minutes, a text turns up. It turns out you’re more Yoda than Darth Vader. Well, that’s interesting…but not as much as your next month’s cell bill will be. You’ve also just unwittingly subscribed to some dubious monthly service that charges $9.95 every month.Personally, I don't use any Facebook applications for this reason.
As it turns out, that "free, fun service" is neither. Be wary of these bait and switch games. They tend to thrive on social sites.

Failed Times Square VBIED Perp Wants Halal Meals
Update: New image above thanks to Sun of Whores (San Diego)
Let him eat what everyone else does.
Federal marshals loomed over the 30-year-old Pakistani-American as he sat in a gray shirt and pants and stared at Judge James C. Francis IV.Luckily, Shahzad failed in his attempt to murder numerous people for the sake of Allah. Had he succeeded, those people would never eat again. Screw the halal meals.
Shahzad uttered a faint "yes" when the judge asked if his affidavit of financial insufficiency was correct, meaning that Shahzad could not afford private counsel. Judge Francis then appointed public defender Julia Gatto to represent him. Shahzad's only request of the judge was that he be provided with halal meals – food that follows Islamic dietary restrictions.
Faisal Shahzad Followed Shaikh Faisal
The man accused in the failed Times Square bombing attempt has been talking to authorities for more than two weeks. And one of the things he told them, according to people close to the case, is that he was inspired to act by two Internet clerics — one in Yemen and another in Jamaica.Well Abdullah Faisal might be a less familiar figure. Unless you've been following the New York based terror supporters over at Revolution Muslim
The first cleric Shahzad cited is a familiar name: Anwar al-Awlaki. He's the American-born imam who has been linked to an al-Qaida group in Yemen — the same imam who allegedly blessed the Fort Hood shootings and the botched Christmas Day bombing attempt of a U.S. airliner by a young man carrying explosives in his underpants.
The other cleric is a less familiar figure.
His name is Abdullah Faisal, a 46-year-old convert to Islam who is from Jamaica. He spoke with NPR on Tuesday. We had initially set up an interview with him to be recorded for broadcast on the radio. But when he arrived, he demanded that we pay him for the interview. When I refused, he declined to go on tape.
Younis Abdullah Muhammad and his boys have been supporting, promoting and raising funds for the convicted felon for years.
In fact Revolution Muslim is the #1 outlet for Faisal's sermons and talks. So was Faisal Shahzad a big fan of Revolution Muslim? I can't say for sure but here is a very suspicious coincidence. Younis and his gang of terror supporters were in Times Square just before the car bomb was found.
Its all a little too coincidental for me. I've said that eventually the group over at Revolution Muslim will inspire someone to kill. I've lamented that people are going to have to die before the danger of this group is taken seriously.
Update: More here at the Counter Terrorism blog.
Update II by Allahakchew aka SH:
What's more, Revolution Muslim is requesting paypal donations right on their home page to support Sheik Faisal. An insider tells me he's even having trouble affording an internet connection, and has been broadcasting from a local net cafe.
UC Berkeley Wants Your DNA
No to Marine recruiters, yes to DNA.
BERKELEY, Calif. -- UC Berkeley is adding something a little different this year in its welcome package -- cotton swabs for a DNA sample[...]You can't make this stuff up...
The students will be asked to voluntarily submit a DNA sample. The cotton swabs will come with two bar code labels. One label will be put on the DNA sample and the other is kept for the students own records.
The confidential process is being overseen by Jasper Rine, a campus professor of Genetics and Development Biology, who says the test results will help students make decisions about their diet and lifestyle[...]
Rine hopes that this will excite students to be more hands-on with their college experience.

Saudi Arabia Invades Yemen, Flattens Village
A Saudi border incursion destroyed a Yemeni village with bulldozers. They just came in and flattened it with no notice and no compensation. The Saudis also destroyed the electric poles and a mosque. The peace deal with the Houthi rebels includes provisions for a buffer zone, but not for the Saudis to invade Yemen to make it. Other reports indicated resumption of Saudi over-flights in Sa'ada. Its an interesting tie in to the earlier news that Saudi forces rescued the German children on Yemeni soil. From the Yemen Observer:
Saudi bulldozers exceeded the Yemeni border towards a village of Sa’adah province and destroyed the entire village, informed sources in Sa’adah local council told Yemen Observer. The village, Um Quaia’ah, directorate of Shada, Sa’adah province, was ravaged by Saudi bulldozers, including mosques and electricity poles, eyewitnesses said. Yemen Observer contacted Mohammed al-Emad, the Secretary General of Sa’adah province, and he didn’t deny the news, but would not comment on the story. Um Quaia’ah is said to be away from the border lines between Saudi Arabia and Yemen and villagers said that their village has stood neutral during the war between Saudi forces and the al-Houthi rebels. The destroyed village is now empty of local residents except Saudi Hummers and military vehicles. The village of Um Quaia’ah is about a few kilometers from al-Malahid area that witnessed heavy fighting between the al-Houthi rebels and Saudi troops.

Gang Rape Victim Charged with Sex Out of Wedlock
An 18-year-old Emirati woman has been charged with having sex outside of wedlock after reporting that she was raped by six men, Abu Dhabi’s Criminal Court was told yesterday. […]All six men face charges with four being prosecuted in absentia.
The woman and one of her male Emirati friends, HA, went for a drive in his vehicle on May 2, prosecutors said. The charges allege that because she had agreed to be in the car, the two had, therefore, met to have sex. According to court records, HA, 19, called five of his friends – four Emiratis and one Iraqi – and invited them to join him.
Prosecutors said that after HA and the woman had sex in an unknown location in Abu Dhabi, the five men met up with them. At that point, the charges say, the men all raped her in HA’s car.
The woman later contacted police and said she had been raped by six men, including HA. It is not known when she reported the attack.

management and leadership. Most importantly, the film introduces us to the human beings who are our enemies[...]Yes, let's put a human side to the bastards of alQaeda. Forget the beheadings, murder of innocents by alQaeda. They are human doncha know?
The Oath is the second documentary in a trilogy Poitras is developing about post-9/11 America. The first, My Country, My Country, tells the story of the U.S. occupation of Iraq from the perspective of an Iraqi doctor. A planned third film will focus on the 9/11 trials.
Michael Moore's go to mouthpiece, George Soros puppet, Ariana Huffington of the Huffington Post:
Investigative journalist Seymour Hersh says that US forces in Afghanistan are carrying out what he referred to as "battlefield executions" of prisoners.Reminds me of John Kerry's assault on fellow troops in Vietnam - "Raiding villages in the dark of night..etc.", or John Murtha's rant -about the Haditha Marines. They, btw, have been proven innocent and dammit Murtha didn't live long enough to apologize to those Marines. I don't mean to speak ill of the dead....but he was a scumbag.
"One of the great tragedies of my country is that Mr. Obama is looking the other way, because equally horrible things are happening to prisoners, to those we capture in Afghanistan," Hersh said during a discussion at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference last month in Geneva, where he was also the keynote speaker. "They're being executed on the battlefield."
This documentary is more of the same BS...alQaeda good, our troops bad.

Iraq Says It Uncovered Al Qaeda Plot on World Cup
A senior Al Qaeda militant suspected of planning an attack targeting the soccer World Cup in South Africa next month has been detained, an Iraqi official says.Good on the Iraqi's. This is a serious threat. I have seen chatter on the ehadi forums about this.
Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi, a spokesman for Baghdad security services, says the militant was an officer in the Saudi army.
Abdullah Azam Saleh al-Qahtani is suspected of planning a "terrorist act" in South Africa during the World Cup beginning June 11, al-Moussawi said at a press conference on Monday.
He added that al-Qahtani entered Iraq in 2004 and is suspected in several attacks in the capital and elsewhere in the country.
Al-Moussawi said the 30-year-old Saudi national, who was in charge of "security" for the terror network in Baghdad, was in contact with Al Qaeda number two Ayman al-Zawahiri to "organize the plan," AFP reported.

But the four naked men and women certainly livened up the usually dull journey for many people – attracting gasps from stunned workers.
Carrying handbags or briefcases to cover their modesty – and wearing shoes – the nudes travelled on escalators and rode in the carriages as though their lack of suitable attire was completely normal.
But, rather than trying to start a new trend on the London Underground, the group were promoting a TV series which sees staff at struggling businesses helping to turn their company around.

Online Jihad In New York
(Reuters) - A New York man accused of helping al Qaeda with computer systems and cash was denied bail on Monday in a New York court.
Sabirhan Hasanoff, 34, a dual U.S. and Australian citizen who owns a home in Brooklyn, New York, was arrested on April 30 and charged with conspiracy to provide material support to Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network, according to a U.S. District Court indictment.
Another New York man, Wesam El-Hanafi, was arrested and charged in the same indictment, and is currently detained pending an appearance in Manhattan federal court later this week. Both men are accused of pledging allegiance to al Qaeda and using their computer expertise to aid the group.
Two German Children Freed in Yemen
CNN reports a Saudi-Yemeni operation secured the release of two kidnapped German toddlers in Yemen. German authorities report the two little girls are in the hospital and will be flying home tomorrow, but their brother is probably dead. The Saudis secured the release which occurred somewhere in the war torn Sada'a province, the same area they were kidnapped from. The Germans and Saudis are still working to secure the release of their parents. A British engineer is still being held.
The five Germans were among nine abducted last June in Yemen in a miliatry controlled area of Sa'ada. Three nurses, two Germans and a South Korean, were killed shortly after being abducted. The Yemeni government immediately blamed the Houthi rebels who denied the charge and offed to aid in the search. Western diplomats said the attack bore the hallmarks of al Qaeda. Hard core Salafi preachers had been inciting against the presence of Western medical workers in Sa'ada before the incident.
The British Foreign Office said Tuesday it was in close touch with Yemeni authorities about the hostages. "We remain concerned for the safety of the kidnapped British national," a spokeswoman said. The Saudi interior ministry said they joined Yemeni forces in securing the release because it was a humanitarian matter involving children. Yemenis were universally appalled by the kidnapping and murders. Protests in Sa'ada and the capital Sana'a denounced the kidnapping in the weeks following.
Teh Awsome: Woman Beats Saudi Religious Policeman
It was a scene Saudi women’s rights activists have dreamt of for years.I guess we know who will wear the pants in that new family?
When a Saudi religious policeman sauntered about an amusement park in the eastern Saudi Arabian city of Al-Mubarraz looking for unmarried couples illegally socializing, he probably wasn’t expecting much opposition.
But when he approached a young, 20-something couple meandering through the park together, he received an unprecedented whooping.
A member of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the Saudi religious police known locally as the Hai’a, asked the couple to confirm their identities and relationship to one another, as it is a crime in Saudi Arabia for unmarried men and women to mix.
For unknown reasons, the young man collapsed upon being questioned by the cop.
According to the Saudi daily Okaz, the woman then allegedly laid into the religious policeman, punching him repeatedly, and leaving him to be taken to the hospital with bruises across his body and face.

UK Wont Deport al-Qaeda Member Abid Naseer
The alleged leader of an al-Qaeda plot to bomb targets in north-west England has won his appeal against deportation.The real kicker is he has never been charged with a crime. So will he eventually be released in the UK, free to plant a bomb on the subway?
A special immigration court said Abid Naseer was an al-Qaeda operative - but could not be deported because he faced torture or death back home in Pakistan.
Mr Naseer, 23, was one of 10 Pakistani students arrested last April as part of a massive counter-terrorism operation in Liverpool and Manchester.
Another student, Ahmad Faraz Khan, also 23, won his appeal on similar grounds.

Update by Howie: While we are being exact with words. Mr Colmes states at around 3:00, "This is a political ideology not a religious ideology".
Mr. Colmes? I know that you know that under the interpretation of Islam adhered to by al-Qaeda and our buddy Yousef, there is no separation of the political from the religious. The two are intertwined and the Kaliphate is a state based on Islamic law.
The only difference between the radical and not so radical is the method. You will still pay the Jaziyah under both. Its just that the Radicals want to impose adherence by force.
Many of the less radical or moderates still want Sharia, they just want to do it peacefully.

Two of Faisal Shahzad's Emails: Dislikes Mo Cartoons & Gasp! Jews & Christians
New York (CNN) -- Faisal Shahzad, the suspect in the failed car bombing in New York's Times Square, was frustrated with the state of the Muslim world and sought a way to "fight back."I have the full email here.
Two e-mails obtained by CNN help piece together a portrait of the Pakistani-born naturalized U.S. citizen. They also may shed some light on what propelled his failed terror plot.
"Everyone knows the current situation of Muslim World," he wrote in an e-mail he sent to a large group of recipients in February 2006.
Here's what I have noted form a quick read of the first email. In it he talks about the supreme law, Law of Islam (Sharia) and why should Muslims obey that over the Law of the United States. With other religious law you might never encounter a problem with the secular law law if you follow it. But Islam requires dominance over all other laws and religion.
He calls on Mulsims to, "strive to bring Kalifah" with means establish Islamic law. He mentions that the Jews and Christians can only be accepted if they accept Islam is superior.
Its a classic example of the "We Muslims are being oppressed by the Jews and Christians because we're being kept from exerting our oppression over them."
And they drew Muhammad!
They will always be oppressed so long as they are not subjugating YOU. Got that Mr. Cross Worshipper?
No, well then Islam has a solution.

Two Imam's Disagreed With al-Qaeda's Murderous Doctrine, al-Qaeda Murders Them
BAQUBA, Iraq — Two Sunni Arab imams were brutally killed on Monday in Iraq, including one who was decapitated and had his head planted on a power pole, in attacks blamed on Al-Qaeda, military officials said.But isn't that al-Qaeda's answer to everything murder in the name of Allah? Its as if Allah was some helpless deity kept inside a giant cube or something?
The slayings in the province of Diyala, northeast of Baghdad, were against anti-Qaeda preachers who regularly railed against the terror network during Friday sermons.
"At around 2:00 pm (1100 GMT), armed Al-Qaeda members captured Sheikh Abdullah Shakur while he was in Saadiyah market," said a Diyala military command officer who declined to be identified, referring to the central town.
"They returned an hour later with his head and attached it to an electricity post."
Shakur, imam of Saadiyah's mosque, had received several death threats from Al-Qaeda, who had demanded that he leave the town, which is home to large Sunni, Shiite and Kurd populations.
I can't tell you the number of times I've read al-Qaeda supporters talking about the incredible debates and diversity within Islam. Well apparently for their heroes there is only one acceptable version of Islam. It the one where you lick al-Qaeda's boots or die.

Discovery of Gasoline Bomb Forces Evacuation in Jersey City (Updated)
JERSEY CITY -- A 6 a.m. call about a potential gas leak to led to a major response by police and firefighters to a three-story building and the discovery of a gasoline can with an ignition device wired into it.Hmmmm
Luck helped save livesHmmmm
[...]The bomb -- a 2.5-gallon gasoline can with a wire running from it to a light fixture and another wire attached to the front door -- had been placed in the front of the building and was rigged to go off when someone opened the front door at 451 Palisade Avenue.
"It was just dumb luck," that firefighters entered the building through the back door instead of the front, said one firefighter at the scene who is isn't authorized to speak to the media.
The pizzeria on the first floor was recently vacated, neighbors say, and there are apartments above it. The first floor was filled with natural gas, as the gas line had been cut, apparently with the intent of increasing the damage and loss of life tenfold.
MYFOXNY.COM - Jersey City police have arrested a landlord for allegedly rigging a gas-bomb to try to blow up his own building and trying to blame it on his tenant.

Left-Wing Boycott Taking a Toll on Arizona Economy?
In the wake of the left-wing, open-borders boycott of Arizona over the new immigration law, analysts for the City of Phoenix estimate that the city is on track to lose approximately$90 MILLION in lost tourism business.
According to Arizona's public officials, the open-borders lefties are starting to put a tight squeeze on Arizona's overall economy:
The legislation and firestorm of negative publicity that followed brought calls for boycotts, moved groups to back out of local conventions and led several cities to cut business ties with Arizona companies.
The loss of business is critical in a recession-battered state vitally dependent on visitor spending...
The backlash against Arizona couldn't come at a worse time, convention and business leaders say.
The state, which took in $18.5 billion in visitor spending in 2008, has seen its tourism industry struggle in the past couple of years as the U.S. economy sagged...
Officials were just starting to see signs of life when the backlash over the new immigration law began, said Debbie Johnson, CEO of the Arizona Tourism Alliance and the Arizona Hotel and Lodging Association.
To date, dozens of cities and groups have announced boycotts. Arizona has lost at least 30 to 40 meetings and conventions, she said.
"We were surprised by (the boycotts)," Johnson said. "We didn't think it was going to be a tourism issue. This is a political issue."
Despite certain initiatives created to help support Arizona, the broader conservative movement has not yet stepped up en masse to counter this left-wing economic attack.
This is a time for each of us to decide where we stand. Do you stand with Arizona?
Arizona: Suck It Up San Diego - Turn About Is Fair Play
Arizona tourists are biting back against San Diego for its city council's decision to boycott the Grand Canyon State over its immigration law signed by Gov. Jan Brewer last month.Ha!
Would-be tourists have notified the San Diego Convention and Visitors Bureau and some hotels that they are canceling their scheduled travel to the coastal vacation destination, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
According to the newspaper, the convention bureau has received about 25-30 emails from Arizona residents, with some saying they are canceling their reservations and taking their money elsewhere.
That has tourism officials urging Arizonans to consider the resolutions as merely symbolic and local politics at work.
"We're in a very tough environment already because of everything else going on, and we don't need another negative impact to our industry," ConVis President Joe Terzi told the Union-Tribune. "This affects all the hardworking men and women who count on tourism for their livelihoods, so we’re saying, don't do something that hurts their livelihoods."
The Poet Versus the Prophet
Except for the technical incompetence of a Muslim dirtbag named Faisal Shahzad, I and my friend would likely be dead now. Note the phrase: “Muslim dirtbag.” Neither term by itself accounts for the terrorist act he attempted to perpetrate; both terms, however, are equally complicit in it.Be sure and read it all.
It might have been a crapshoot of nature and nurture that wrought a specimen like Shahzad, but it was Islam that inspired him, that gave his fecal stain of a life its depth and its justification. Why is that so difficult to admit?

Brad Thor: Credit Where Credit Is Due
Over a month ago, I warned that the New York Times was about to go public with a list of American operatives covertly working in Afghanistan and Pakistan providing Force Protection for our troops. Yesterday, in a front page article the New York Times admitted that it did in fact have said list in their possession.They didn't publish the names of the operatives:
I believe in giving credit where credit is due. For not releasing those names, I commend the New York Times. Even more heartening is the fact that it appears that the Times is warming to what I have dubbed, the “Petreaus Perspective.”Amen to that...
It is General Petraeus’s unique view of the battlespace melded with a combination of traditional military and outside-the-box approaches to securing victory in Afghanistan. In short, General Petraeus appreciates that there is a lot more to winning against al-Qaeda and the Taliban than just bombs and bullets.

Another Obit: WWII Ace Walker "Bud" Mahurin
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. – Walker "Bud" Mahurin, a fighter pilot who shot down two dozen planes in two wars and was regarded as one of America's top aces ever, has died, his wife said Sunday. He was 91.Rest in peace hero, rest in peace.
Joan Mahurin said Bud Mahurin died of natural causes at his home in Newport Beach on Tuesday.
She said her husband kept flying small planes — and kept receiving fan mail — for most of his life.
"He would get letters from teenagers to old war veterans," Joan Mahurin said.
Doug Lantry, a historian at the National Museum of the United States Air Force in Ohio, said Mahurin's name is familiar to all in the Air Force.
"Bud Mahurin was the only Air Force pilot to shoot down enemy aircraft in the European theater of operations and the Pacific and in Korea," Lantry told the Los Angeles Times. "He was known as a very courageous, skilled and tenacious fighter pilot."
Mahurin was shot down himself, twice during World War II and once in the Korean War, which led to his capture and 16 traumatic months in a prison camp.
A native of Benton Harbor, Mich., Mahurin studied engineering at Purdue University then joined the Army Air Forces in September 1941 — three months before Pearl Harbor.
He went by the call sign "Honest John," a title he'd later adopt for his memoirs.
RIP: Ronnie James Dio
NEW YORK – Even as he endured grueling chemotherapy treatments to rid his stomach of cancer, Ronnie James Dio showed the fiery passion that made him a metal legend, flashing his famous devil's horns signal as he lay in a hospital bed.
"This hasn't really been a problem for me. Cancer? I'll kick the hell out of you," declared Dio in March in an interview with KIAH-TV in Houston, where he was being treated for the disease. "I refuse to be beaten in any shape or form so I'm going to beat you, too."
But on Sunday, Dio — whose famous wailing vocals gave Black Sabbath a second life — succumbed to the disease, at age 67.
"Today my heart is broken," Wendy Dio, his wife and a manger, wrote on the singer's website. "Many, many friends and family were able to say their private goodbyes before he peacefully passed away.
Zionists Install Rima Fakih As Miss USA 2010
Everything is proceeding as we have forseen.Yahoo News:
LAS VEGAS – Lebanese immigrant Rima Fakih says it was a certain look from Donald Trump that tipped her off that she had won the 2010 Miss USA title.Debbie will be pissed, but give it time, time for her bronze hotness to work its magic on the Arab mind. Have you forgotten that "We" control absolutely everything?
The 24-year-old Miss Michigan beat out 50 other women to take the title Sunday night, despite nearly stumbling in her evening gown.
She told reporters later that she believed she had won after glancing at pageant owner Trump as she awaited the results with the first runner-up, Miss Oklahoma USA Morgan Elizabeth Woolard.
"That's the same look that he gives them when he says, 'You're hired,'" on Trump's reality show "The Apprentice," she said.
"She's a great girl," said Trump, who owns the pageant with NBC in a joint venture.
Update: Miss USA is a slutty pole dancer! According to TMZ she is so slutty she won her own slut pole. Why oh why did she not showcase that in the Talent competition?
Embrace the teh slutteh.
AP Goes to Bat to Protect Obama Admin in Oil Spill Crisis
Talk about burying the lede; the Associated Press has raised that practice to a high artform.
Here's the Drudge Report headline blaring the startling news that the Deepwater Horizon, the oil rig that exploded April 20, was awarded for safety last year by the federal Mineral Management Service.
And here's the Associated Press excerpt to which the headline refers:
In fact, last year MMS awarded the rig an award for its safety history.It is the very last sentence in the AP story.
Apparently the AP is afraid that, if they don't play ball with the Obama administration, they'll get the bat shoved up their ass. Or else they just think the One is a rock star and get tingles up their legs when He speaks.

Oh My: General McChrystal Accused of OPSEC Violation?
Britain's elite fighting force, the SAS, has become enmeshed in controversy and recriminations, with one of its most successful former senior officers being banned from headquarters and its current chief engaged in a dispute with the US commander of Nato forces in Afghanistan.WTF? moment..
The Independent has learned that General Stanley McChrystal, leading Western troops in the war against the Taliban, has received a complaint from the UK's Director of Special Forces (DSF) after he broke the SAS's code of silence and spoke about the missions mounted by the SAS and their Royal Marines equivalent, the SBS, in Iraq and Afghanistan.
At the same time, Lieutenant-Colonel Richard Williams, who led the SAS during the Iraq war in undercover operations run by General McChrystal, has been told to stay away from the regiment's headquarters in Hereford.
In other WTF? news, 'Nobody is winning' Afghan war, admits McChrystal
Afghan President Hamid Karzai arrived in London yesterday as US generals express doubts they are having any success in fighting the Taleban.I now must ask where's
The US and Nato commander in Afghanistan, General Stanley McChrystal, who was boasting of military progress only three months ago, confessed last week that "nobody is winning". His only claim now is that the Taleban have lost momentum compared with last year.
Mr Karzai's reception in London and Washington highlights the political dilemma of the US and UK in Afghanistan since both have more or less openly denounced the corruption of his regime and the mass fraud at the polls by which he was re-elected last year.
In a leaked memo, the US ambassador in Kabul, General Karl Eikenberry, said Mr Karzai was "not an adequate strategic partner" and was interested only in using foreign troops to keep himself in power. One Afghan politician, who did not want his name published, added that ithe problem is not that the Taleban is strong but that the government is so weak.
Equally worrying for the American and British governments is the failure so far of General McChrystal's strategy of using his troops to seize Taleban strongholds and, once cleared, hand them over to Afghan forces.

Bomb Threat Aboard Cathay Pacific Aircraft to Vancouver
National Defence scrambled two CF-18 fighter jets from CFB Comox after a bomb threat was made aboard a Cathay Pacific flight enroute to a Vancouver airport Saturday afternoon.Update: CNN has more.
Cathay Pacific flight number 839 was enroute when the pilot issued an alert. The Department of National Defence immediately sent its fight jets into action from Comox, B.C., say sources. The jets escorted the plane into Vancouver International Airport at around 1:40 p.m. local time.
"The CF-18 escorted the aircraft to Vancouver and it landed without incident," MacKay said.
There are unconfirmed reports the plane is sitting on the tarmac with passengers still on board. The plane has been towed to a secure part of the airport.
[Update 8:28 p.m. ET] The plane, which was coming from Hong Kong, landed safely at 1:35 p.m. PT (4:35 p.m. ET), said Alisa Gloag, a spokeswoman for the Vancouver Airport Authority.Hat Tip: Her Royal Whyness.
Passengers were deplaned and the aircraft was being towed to another area for further inspection, said Gloag, who did not have information about how the threat was reported.
Women Are Better Leaders
According to a study conducted by Duke University researchers, women are "better leaders than men" in top jobs.
Professor Ashleigh Rosette and grad student Leigh Plunkett Tost led the study where 323 graduate and undergraduate students evaluated fictitious newspaper reports about male and female CEOs.
They found that when the newspaper articles portrayed women CEOs as successful and gave them credit for that success, the students evaluated them more favorably - as both more competent and more relational - than comparable male CEOs.So, the study was to have a bunch of people read stories and decide who in the stories were the better leaders. It's not known who wrote the fictitious newspaper articles but it is suggested that they were biased. Arguably, female academics would be prone to author studies which indicate women are more capable than men.
In an unrelated and undocumented review conducted by this writer, it has been found that predetermined conclusions often prompt the launching of supporting studies.
San Diego State religious studies department chair trying to rehabilitate Jim Jones (yes, of the Jonestown massacre)
Hey, it was only 918 people who were forced to commit mass suicide by a politically-connected Democratic power player and Marx-spewing Leftist. Daniel Flynn at City Journal takes down Rebecca Moore's new book, "Understanding Jonestown and Peoples Temple".
It would be tempting to dismiss Moore, who in addition to her latest apologia has authored such titles as A Sympathetic History of Jonestown and In Defense of Peoples Temple. But like the group whose reputation she seeks to resuscitate, Moore does not operate on the margins, however marginal her views. She chairs the department of religious studies at San Diego State. When the subject of Jonestown arises, as it did recently on the 30th anniversary of the events, media outlets solicit her expertise. Stanley Nelson’s PBS documentary “The Life and Death of Peoples Temple,” for instance, featured Moore as a talking head. And she published this latest book not out of her garage but through Praeger, a respected imprint of a major publishing house. However reassuring it is to believe that all cranks are tinfoil-hatted denizens of the furthest recesses of the Internet, the examples of Jones, the darling of the San Francisco power structure, and of Moore, a tenured, media-designated authority, prove that what’s comforting isn’t always what’s true.
For years prior to Jonestown’s cataclysmic finale, unheeded voices, such as journalist Les Kinsolving’s, warned America about the raven-haired preacher feted by San Francisco columnist Herb Caen, supervisor Harvey Milk, and mayor George Moscone. In her topsy-turvy narrative, Moore seems most concerned with refuting these lonely critics. She calls the relatives of Jonestown members who exposed oppression within the Temple “apostates” and “defectors,” faulting them for failing to “consider the effect these actions might have upon residents of Jonestown.” The slain Congressman Ryan didn’t provide adequate notice for his trip and embarrassed the Temple by bringing an entourage of journalists, Moore claims. “Violence erupted because Jonestown residents believed that Ryan jeopardized their ultimate concern, which was to be in solidarity with all oppressed peoples, but especially with African Americans. He represented the power of the state and its ability to destroy the community.” This is the kind of tripe that one would have expected to hear over a Jonestown loudspeaker. Here it is in a book by a department chair at a respected university.
Jones’s seductive rhetoric attacking racism, capitalism, and homophobia, which helped delude his supporters, has deluded Moore as well. In the Jonestown aftermath, the Left quickly distanced itself from Peoples Temple to save face; 30 years later, Moore highlights the Temple’s role within the American Left to revive the Temple’s reputation. If not exactly an attempt at innocence-by-association, this is at least an effort to use Jones’s associations with prominent Democrats and radicals to highlight what Moore sees as the Temple’s overlooked redeeming aspects.
Indeed, Jim Jones was a power player in Bay Area politics and thereby a player in national Democratic Party politics. Local politicians and activists benefited from the slave labor that he could provide on little notice to people political rallies and hand out campaign literature. In gratitude, Moscone appointed him chairman of San Francisco’s housing authority and Willie Brown likened Jones, a man who would eventually kill more African-Americans than any Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard, to Martin Luther King, Jr. First lady Rosalyn Carter and her husband’s running mate, Walter Mondale, both met with the cult leader. Jones even appropriated the title of Huey Newton’s book, Revolutionary Suicide, to describe the extermination of his flock (which included several of Newton’s relatives). Once Jonestown’s residents had performed this “revolutionary suicide,” the wills left behind bequeathed all to the Soviet Union.
None of this would move any sane reader to think better of Jones, which is why his former political supporters, eager to distance themselves, attempt to paint him as a species alien to them—a religious crazy of the evangelical variety, in one too-convenient retelling. But Moore—correctly, for once—disdains the religious excuse and highlights the politics. “Jones gave no sermons in Jonestown, but instead interpreted international news, directed the Jonestown economy, and gave monologues—or harangues—at Peoples Rallies,” Moore explains. “When religion did come up, it was to criticize it. For example, when Jones exhorted residents to pretend to be ‘in’ the Holy Spirit, he was mocking the Pentecostal roots of the movement. He called Jesus an oppressor of black people. Peoples Temple was no longer a religious organization, at least not in Guyana, but was instead a socialistic utopian experiment.”
Peoples Temple disproportionately attracted vulnerable people, ensuring an easy-to-control flock: the very old and the very young, drug-culture dropouts, the urban underclass, and mush-headed idealists. In Jonestown, forced labor, a “snitch” culture, and sleep and nutritional deprivation conditioned docility. Politically predisposed and programmed to believe that American agents of capitalism and racism lay in wait to torture their children, Jonestown’s residents were fed misinformation and exposed to fake attacks—or, as Moore artfully puts it, Jones and his assistants “precipitated a state of siege in which residents believed that they were under attack.” Periodic acid tests weeded some people out and solidified the loyalty of the herd. Members signed paychecks and deeds over to Peoples Temple, uprooted their lives and moved to another continent to follow Jones, played along with his phony faith healings, falsely admitted homosexuality or allowed themselves to be taken sexually by Jones, aborted children on command, and participated in dry runs of suicide. And just in case this didn’t move them to stand obediently in the Kool-Aid line, Jones took the precaution of surrounding them with armed men when the time for death arrived.

Hussein Ibish: Asking why Muslims aren't condemning terror is like asking a politician if he's stopped beating his wife
Asking Muslims why they are so quiet about Islamic terrorism is a trap:
In fact, of course, there had been a considerable outcry of condemnation around the Muslim world and particularly in the United States from the Muslim community, not only of the most recent outrage and 9/11, but of almost all the major terrorist acts in between. Yet once alleged, the question has persisted and never been resolved. The question continues to be routinely posed to Muslim-Americans: “why is your community silent about terrorism?” It has all the qualities of a trap question, in which answering invites one to accept self-defeating premises, a little like a politician being asked when he intends to stop beating his wife.
Ibish agrees that his co-religionists do get a little soft when it comes to religiously-inspired terrorism directed at Jews:
What has, however, troubled me for a long time and as I have continuously been complaining since at least 2004 is that while the mainstream Muslim clergy around the world has been quite good at taking a stand against terrorism generally, although not at communicating that to the non-Muslim world, there has been a most unfortunate tendency to try to make an exception for the Palestinian case on the grounds of self-defense and lack of any other options in combating occupation. Obviously, I reject any idea that combating occupation or having limited other options for armed combat can suddenly make illegitimate tactics legitimate. This point of view is, I think, less widespread than it used to be, but making moral exceptions for one's friends or certain exigent circumstances is, at best, a cynical political gesture and not a moral or religious position.
But it is forgivable because the West doesn't condemn Israel enough. Um, yeah.
HT: Jeffrey Goldberg
Update: Jihadwatch notes that in 2000 Ibish called Hezbollah's conduct "exemplary":
“Everywhere Hezbollah fighters, derided by the Israeli and U.S. governments as ‘terrorists,’ conducted themselves in an exemplary manner.”

Let them build their mosque at Ground Zero
Why is it government's business whether or not Muslims build a mosque near Ground Zero? It isn't. It's called liberty.
Whether or not Muslims should build it is another matter alltogether. They shouldn't.
Liberty must, by definition, means the freedom to do stupid things - like build a mosque in the most inappropriate place on the planet.
As stupid as this is, it is far more dangerous bringing to bear the power of government to stop organized religions from doing stupid things.
So, when we speak of "stopping the mosque" what exactly do we mean? If you mean convincing the builders to stop it of their own free will then power to the movement. If we are speaking of pressuring government officials - including zoning boards - to use force to stop a religion from assembling where they wish, then we have clearly crossed a line.
Using force for or against a religion is evil defined. Which is why I oppose Islamism as the evil it is: because it uses force both in support of itself (prohibitions against leaving on threat of violence) and against non-Muslims (jihad, no freedm of speech).
The real answer is to get rid of zoning permitting boards alltogether. That way, we can open The Museum of the Islamic Holocaust next door to the mosque documenting the tens of millions killed in the name of the mosque next door.
As it is, I'm afraid a zoning board might find that just as "insensitive" as we find the mosque itself.

New Hampshire: Explosion Rocks downtown Colebrook (Update)
COLEBROOK – A 1:30 p.m. explosion at MDM Muzzleloader filled downtown Colebrook with smoke and debris and sent people fleeing, according to Karen Ladd, publisher of the News and Sentinel.Thoughts and prayers going out to all those affected by this.
MDM, which came to Colebrook last fall, is located in the former Manchester Manufacturing building at the end of Bridge Street near the Vermont border.
Ladd said she heard a very loud boom.
"I'll be honest, I completely panicked and told everyone to get out of the building. It sounded like something hit the building," she said.
As soon as the News and Sentinel employees had evacuated, they saw a column of smoke at the end of Bridge Street, and soon learned the explosion was inside MDM Muzzleloader
Update:Sadly, two were killed in the explosion;
COLEBROOK, N.H. - Multiple explosions at a gun and ammunition manufacturing plant in far northern New Hampshire on Friday killed two people, shook buildings blocks away, filled the sky with black smoke and forced the evacuation of dozens of homes.Family and friends of the two killed are in my thoughts and prayers as well as everyone who was affected by this terrible tragedy.
State Fire Marshal Bill Degnan confirmed the deaths at the MDM Muzzleloader building in Colebrook. He said the fire was burning more than four hours after the explosion was reported.
"We're just getting into the investigation and trying to determine the details," he said.

Slackjawed Delusional Yemeni President Threatens to Cut Balls Off Opposition Leaders
Aden Press: The Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh threatened to cut off the genitalia of all the leaders of the opposition JMP, Joint Meeting Parties, and the leader of the Southern movement if they don’t stop their opposition of his regime. The threat came during his speech at the celebration of labor day in Sana’a which was attended by thousands of workers and officials...Nearly??? Actually Yemeni President Saleh is quite a competent criminal kingpin. And although Saleh's regime recently committed substantial war crimes, and this is well documanted, he remains "an important US ally" in the Battle against Man Made Lethal Contingencies. However, he is more against us than with us.
A southern official who attended the function told Adenpress.com that Saleh appeared angry and tired and quoted Saleh as saying:”We must cut off the genitalia of the guys of the JMP and the southern movement to make them aware of their discriminatory actions against the nation.” During the speech Saleh tried unsuccessfully to hide an obvious skew in his lower jaw which was turning to the right more than once...
Sources said that Saleh is delusional, he is not differentiating between socialism and Shiites or socialism and JMP (which all are pronounced and sounds similar in the Arabic language)… nor is he differentiating between north and south and east and west, “the man is completely delusional and nearly insane."

Warrior Games: Cyclists Refuse to Leave Teammate Behind
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., May 14, 2010 – The Warrior Games cycling competition, held at the U.S. Air Force Academy here in a May snow shower yesterday, would have daunted the toughest of professional cyclists, but not wounded, ill and injured servicemembers.
They battled their way through freezing temperatures and slippery roads, persevering in the midst of extreme pain, and even stopped to help each other along the way.
Suffering from two torn rotator cuffs, Army Sgt. Monica Southall had never used a handcycle before arriving at the Warrior Games a few days ago, but she didn’t let that keep her from the race. At one point, the pain became too much to bear and she wanted to stop, but as she said, “Soldiers don’t quit, and I wasn’t going to quit.”
Help, in the form of Army Warrant Officer 1 Johnathan Holsey and Navy Master Chief Petty Officer Will Wilson, arrived just when Southall needed it most. Both men are leg amputees, and Wilson was talking Holsey through their upright cycling race when they passed Southall about two miles from the finish line and noticed her struggling. Any thoughts of winning in their own competition instantly disappeared.
“When we came by her, she was having a hard time going around, and the Navy master chief [and I], we were coming through,” Holsey said after the race. “He kind of helped me on. He was saying, ‘Stay with me. Stay with me.’ And when we saw Monica, we were like, ‘You know what? We’re going to take her in.’”[...]
Holsey added, “We said we weren’t going to leave her and we stayed with her the whole time, because we’re all here together. You never leave your comrade behind. Never. When we saw her coming up by herself, we said we were going to stay with her and we pushed her along. She had the wheel.God Bless our wounded warriors...
“We just had to be there with her, he continued. “We just came through together. It’s never about the race; it’s about the camaraderie and being there for each other.”[...]
In the end, Holsey and Wilson tied for last place in their category, and Southall finished last in hers, but that didn’t matter. They crossed the finish line together, as a team, to a crowd that cheered just as loudly for them as for the gold-medal winners.
“It was great [to finish], seeing everybody standing there waiting for me and cheering me on,” Southall said with tears rolling down her face. “You just can’t describe a moment like that. It was very inspiring.”
Who Wrote This Thesis?: Socialism in New York City (Updated)
Erick Erickson found this. Amazing. How is it that a Supreme Court Justice nominee could have written her thesis on "Socialism in New York City" - and it is entirely pro-socialism - and it not once have been mentioned?Lovely, just friggin lovely:
"The story is a sad but also a chastening one for those who, more than half a century after socialism's decline, still wish to change America."
"Yet if 'the history of Local New York shows anything, it is·that American radicals cannot afford to become their own worst enemies. In unity lies their only hope."

Update: I've got mail from VP Biden:
This week, when the President first told me he'd chosen Elena Kagan to serve on the Supreme Court, I couldn't help but smile. I had a chance to interview many great candidates, but Elena stood out. I met her nearly 20 years ago, when she took a break from teaching to join my staff in the Senate. She helped us confirm Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and even then, it wasn't hard to picture a day when we'd be helping Elena prepare for confirmation hearings of her own.(Video included below "Citizen United Response to Kagan's SCOTUS Nomination")
Since that time, I've followed her career, and today, I believe Elena Kagan is an inspired choice for the Supreme Court.
Throughout her career, she's been a trailblazer, breaking glass ceilings in both academia and government. She's been a consensus-builder, earning praise for her work with Republicans in the Clinton White House and her support for the free exchange of ideas as the dean of Harvard Law. She's flat-out brilliant, easily one of the best legal minds I've ever met. But most importantly, she's also someone who understands that the application of the law holds real consequences for Americans in all walks of life.
Now her nomination goes to the Senate. I've been through this process more than once, and I've learned that the success of any nomination is strongly influenced by the public response in the first few days.
Will you stand with the President and me to support Elena Kagan? Sign on to help us show that the American people back her nomination.
As a young attorney, Elena clerked for Justice Thurgood Marshall. She often calls him her hero. Now, she's following in his footsteps as the Solicitor General of the United States, the chief legal advocate for our government. If Justice Marshall were with us today, I'm sure he'd be proud of the clerk he used to call "Shorty."
To see why, look no further than her role in the Citizens United case. It was a legal battle that most experts agreed would be impossible for the government to win.
But as Solicitor General, Elena chose this as her first case. She recognized that rolling back bipartisan election law would allow special interests to dominate campaigns across the country and drown out the voice of the American people. Though she knew she'd probably lose, she chose to make it her fight all the same. That's character.
That kind of decision defines Elena's career. With her resume, she's had no shortage of lucrative opportunities. But her parents were both public servants -- her mother a school teacher and her father a housing lawyer who fought for tenants' rights -- and she has always followed their example. Like her dad, she's used her legal knowledge to serve others, and like her mom, she's been an educator, working to pass her knowledge on to another generation. Now, it's time to bring that heartfelt, principled commitment to the Supreme Court.Ummm, sorry Joe, I won't sign the petition.
In these crucial early days, help us show that public support for this extraordinary nominee is overwhelming:

Chile Cops Raid House Of Embassy Detainee's Friend
(AP) SANTIAGO, Chile (AP) - Police spent hours Thursday searching the apartment of an Egyptian man who was friendly with a Pakistani national arrested at the U.S. Embassy as part of a terrorism investigation.What exactly is the popular image of a terrorist? Sheesh...
Officers dressed head-to-toe in white anti-contamination suits carried out a computer, compact discs, an agenda and a cellular phone, police said. The Egyptian man who reportedly befriended Mohammed Saifur Rehman Khan at a Santiago mosque wasn't seen by reporters outside, and police released no information about him.
Khan, 28, is being held for a week under Chile's anti-terrorism laws while being investigated for alleged explosives violations. He was summoned to the embassy Monday because his U.S. visa had been revoked, and arrested after security equipment detected traces of explosives on cell phone and papers.
Authorities have not publicly identified the explosive, but the Chilean newspaper La Segunda reported it was Tetryl, a compound used to increase the explosive power of TNT. Police in white suits also took away Khan's computer earlier this week.
Colleagues and acquaintances say Khan, 28, is a calm and gentlemanly man who doesn't fit the popular image of a terrorist.

Just for you, my friend.
We At The Jawa Report Ask:
Last month, while I was still in Afghanistan, rumors were circulating that the ISI had detained Mullah Omar in Karachi on March 27, and placed him under house arrest in what they call “community care.” American operatives say he has since been transferred to a secret ISI lock-up under the Pakistani euphemism: “institutional care.” According to several reports, all of this information was confirmed to U.S. officials by a senior Pakistani military officer “several weeks ago.”
If not, go ahead and wait for the MSM to catch up. We don't mind.

Don't Like A Conservative? Put A Malacious Code On Their Website..
Michelle Bachmans site was hit with such a code
Bachmann for Congress discovered an attack on its website, which resulted in users in Internet Explorer and Google Chrome to receive virus alerts and some to download viruses. After a search with web developers, the offending code was found and removed from the website.That's the Chicago way...
"This malicious attack caused unsuspecting supporters and Internet users to inadvertently download viruses to their computers, and it is disturbing there are people who spend their time and energy on causing havoc to innocent volunteers," Campaign Manager Gina Countryman said. "We take the security of our website and our volunteers very seriously. We took swift action with our developers to find and remove damaging codes and protect our supporters. We have no reason to believe any data was removed, and no contributor lists are housed on our website."
Any supporters who were affected by the attack should run a basic anti-virus program on their computer, and seek help if they need to have any viruses removed. While the offending code has been removed, some security software programs are being notified of the correction and may still have the website flagged.

An screen grab taken from a video broadcast on Al-Jazeera television on Dec. 20, 2006 shows Ayman al-Zawahiri. After years in which he became a familiar television presence, al Qaeda's number two leader Ayman al-Zawahiri has "gone dark," according to people who monitor audio and video messages released by the terror group.
Zawahiri has not been seen or heard since December 2009, "the longest gap he has had in nearly six years," according to Ben Venzke of the IntelCenter, which monitors al Qaeda messages for governments, businesses and the media.
A US official said there is "no reason" to believe that Zawahiri has been killed or injured in recent months but that "it is possible" he and other al Qaeda leaders "have new concerns about their security."One can only hope there is a Hellfire with his name on it in the near future.
Good News!!: U.S. Gave Millions To Charity Linked To Al Qaeda, Anwar Awlaki
Your tax dollars at work...
Exclusive by INTELWIRE
The U.S. Department of Labor gave millions of dollars to a joint venture that included a Yemeni charity with extensive links to Al Qaeda.*Abdul Majid Al Zindani: Extremist Ohio mosque becoming focus of Rifqa Bary custody dispute
At least $3.5 million was allocated by the Labor Department to fund a three-year partnership between the Charitable Society for Social Welfare (CSSW), based in Yemen, and CHF International, a Maryland-based foundation, to fight child labor and child trafficking starting in fiscal year 2008[...]
CSSW, based in Yemen, was founded by *Abdul Majid Al Zindani, a veteran of the jihad against the Soviet Union and its civil war aftermath. Zindani was an associate of Osama bin Laden in Afghanistan, according to published reports and exclusive documents obtained by INTELWIRE. The U.S. government believes he is an Al Qaeda recruiter and fundraiser.
Predictably, as initial reports of Sultan's extremism were made public in 2006, the local paper, the Columbus Dispatch, came out defending Sultan and the Islamic school where he had been religious director. Just days after the Dispatch came out in support of Sultan, he appeared on Al-Risala TV claiming that the US government was behind the 9/11 attacks and praising Yemeni Al-Qaeda cleric and designated terrorist Abdul Majid al-Zindani:Nothing to see here, move along........
Pentagon Shooting A "Wake Up Call"
ARLINGTON, Va. - On Saturday April 9, 2010, a little more than a month after a lone gunman, was killed in a hail of bullets outside the entrance to the Pentagon, a tense situation unfolded in the exact same location.Ummm, wasn't this incident played down by the MSM?
"We had an individual drive up from Richmond, Va., and he attempted to enter the Pentagon. He was intercepted," said Pentagon Force Protection Director Steven Calvery.
"The man came to the pre-screening area, (and) said he had an appointment with a fictitious admiral. So we interviewed him, got a consent search of his car. He had a loaded 9-millimeter pistol."
"It wasn't a violent attempt to enter," says Calvery.
But, that, along with the March 4 shooting that left John Patrick Bedell, 36, dead, confirmed what Calvery, a former Special Agent in the Secret Service, had suspected would happen.
"Those type of incidents are on the rise here," he says.
And, the Pentagon is a target. He also says security officials need to adjust their focus.
"We've been focused on the al-Qaida type terrorist attack, but with a lone gunman there's always a threat."
The Bedell incident taught the Pentagon Force Protection team a lot.

Oh Noes: Revolution Muslim: YouTube Scandal - YouTube Removed Terrorist Vids. Our Take: YouTube Admits Leaving Jihadist Propaganda

"SCANDAL YouTube admits removing Dokku Umarov's statement under Russian Pressure"Mouthpiece for Kavkaz Center now eh Zach?
One of the participants at a recent international summit of social media resources Global Voices in Santiago (Chile) said that during the conference, the management of YouTube admitted that the portal is under constant pressure from Russia, which demands to remove videos about Jihad in the Caucasus from YouTube.
YouTub[sp] senior official Victoria Grand told the participants of the international conference about the latest scandalous story on this issue. It was about the video statement of the Caucasus Emirate's Emir Dokku Umarov, which was posted on the portal after the sabotage operations in the Moscow subway.
After this statement was seen in 3 days by more than 600 thousand people, YouTube removed it from its server.
Victoria Grand explained what happened in this way.
"It was really a difficult decision and we had a lot of internal debates on this topic. Moreover, it was the material being showed on news channels, so, it had a news value. But Russian authorities took a tough stance on this issue and said that it is almost outside the law", said Grand.
As a result, according to Ms Grand, YouTube decided to remove this particular video material. However, at the same time, she stressed that this does not mean that there are no other versions of this video statement of Dokku Umarov on YouTube.
"You can still find on YouTube a lot of materials of this kind, such as a video from training camp of Taliban, and no one removed this video. Everything always depends on context" Grand summed up.
It is to be mentioned that the story of the removal of Dokku Umarov's statement is not the only YouTube concession to Russia. The video portal regularly removes videos about the war in the Caucasus. In particular, more than 350 videos clips, posted on YouTube by the Kavkaz Center editorial stuff, has been removed by the portal for the last 3 years.[Thanks to YouTube Smackdown..ed]

Good News!! Obi One Administration Slashes NY Anti-Terrorism Funds 11 Days After Failed VBIED At Times Square
WASHINGTON - Eleven days after the botched plot to bomb Times Square, the Obama administration on Wednesday slashed some $53 million from the city's terror-fighting budgetThe never ending campaigner, Obi One is his name.
"For the administration to announce these cuts two weeks after the attempted Times Square bombing shows they just don't get it and are not doing right by New York City," fumed Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.).
To top it off, the news arrives as President Obama comes to town today amid buzz he will meet with the very cops who helped thwart the bombing.
Obama will also be tapping the city's deep pockets for the Democratic Party.

A federal law enforcement source says that search warrants are being executed in Boston, New York, and New Jersey.
“We can confirm that search warrants have been executed in several locations in the Northeast in connection with the investigation into the attempted Time Square bombing," a Justice Department official told CNN. "Two individuals encountered during the searches were taken into federal custody for alleged immigration violations.
"At this time we can provide no further details as the investigation is ongoing. These searches are the product of evidence that has been gathered in the investigation subsequent to the attempted Times Square bombing and do not relate to any known immediate threat to the public or active plot against the United States.”
Minstry Of Irony: Hot Muslima Miss USA Contestant's Hizb,Allah Connections?
Rima Fakih, Miss Michigan USA, who will compete in Sunday Night’s pageant broadcast on NBC,
...Her devout Muslim family comes from the Hezbollah-controlled South Lebanon. Intelligence sources confirm that at least three of Fakih’s relatives are currently top officials in Hezbollah and that at least eight Fakih family members were Hezbollah terrorists killed by the Israelis in past Israel-Lebanese wars and incursions. Some of her family members were originally in Harakat Amal [the Shi'ite Amal militia], which is now essentially a part of Hezbollah. There’s a reason that even Al-Manar TV–Hezbollah’s official TV network–is high on Fakih in the Miss USA pageant.
...she will be parading around on-stage–as all Miss USA contestants do–in a bikini, a complete no-no according to Hezbollah’s strict Muslim rules about covering women up.
The problem is Debbie has it all wrong. We can now report that the Zionist Overlords have taken control of the Miss Michigan USA pageant in a move code named "Operation Nicetits".
Rima Fakih is actually a Zionist tool designed to destroy and pacify Hizb,allah from within by making them look at hot uncovered female flesh AKA boobies.

Edward Aritonang has confirmed that two men were killed during a raid on by Densus 88 antiterror forces in Cikampek, West Java.At least some of the Indonesian terrorists are known to have "graduated" from the Hudaibiyah military camp in Mindanao, southern Philippines, operated by the Jemaah Islamiyah.
He would not confirm reports that another three men were killed or captured in a second raid in Cawang, East Jakarta, though a senior police source later told the Jakarta Globe that a total of five people had been killed. [...]
Police believe at least one of the men is linked to the bombing of the Australian Embassy in Jakarta in 2004.

But suddenly becomes frugal on the research and development needed for the USA to lead the world in space as it has done every since we beat the USSR to the moon.
Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, blasted NASA's new plans for future space exploration Wednesday, adding that President Barack Obama was poorly advised when he canceled the space agency's previous course for U.S. human spaceflight earlier this year.
Armstrong, who commanded the historic Apollo 11 moon landing mission in July 1969, criticized what he billed as an air of secrecy that preceded Obama's February announcement which cancelled NASA's Constellation program aiming for the moon. That plan, he told a Senate subcommittee, was a surprise to many among NASA, academia and the military.
Russia and China will not hesitate to plant their flags and claim the best real estate on the moon and Mars in this century while the US is stuck in low earth orbit.
Imperial Good News: NATO, Afghan forces kill dozens of militants
KABUL – NATO and Afghan troops killed more than three dozen insurgent fighters in separate overnight operations in northern and eastern Afghanistan, Afghan police said Wednesday.
The two operations against suspected Taliban fighters come a day after U.S. President Barack Obama expressed his support in Washington for his visiting Afghan counterpart, Hamid Karzai.
The U.S. and its allies are preparing a push with Afghan forces this summer to stabilize the more-restive south — the Taliban's birthplace. But the north and east have also seen rising violence in recent months.
In one of the overnight strikes, special forces in three helicopters swarmed in on insurgents who had attacked a volunteer security force near the northern town of Kunduz, two regional police officials said.
The troops killed 31 insurgents, said provincial police Chief Gen. Abdul Razaq Yaqoubi. They also found three suicide vests, Yaqoubi said.

Another Online "Pal" of Rusty's Found Guilty on Terror Charges
Banner announcing al Qaeda in Britain
And thus ends the saga of "Shiekh Umar Rabie, Emir of al Qaeda in the UK". I haven't commented publicly on this for some time because I was involved in the case. I testified at Ishaq Kanmi's terrorism trial last year and was asked not to comment publicly, but now that he's plead guilty that commitment has passed.
I don't think I'm giving away too much when I say that long before UK authorities had "The Blackburn Resistance " under surveillance, they were on our radar screens.
Why? Because a year before the "Emir of al Qaeda in the UK" threatened to kill Britain's Prime Minister on what was then the most credible and connected jihad forum, he had made a similar threat on another forum. The earlier threat, though, was not only against British politicos, but against any one who had voted for Tony Blair or Gordon Brown.
He also sent the call out for suicide bombers. Funny that no one volunteered.
And so "Umar Rabie" was on our radar screen. Eventually four members of the "Blackburn Islamic Resistance Movement" were arrested, three of whom have been convicted on terrorism related charges.
Of the MSM articles I've seen on the case, this one from This is Lancashire seems to have the most complete coverage. Here's some of it:
Kanmi was travelling to Helsinki when he was arrested in January 2008.Lusha, it may be recalled, was in the UK illegally. Despite being an illegal immigrant, he was able to secure a home mortgage. The home was then used to store materials which would be needed to make a bomb.
He was with Abbas Iqbal, 24, one of two brothers who filmed al Qaeda-style propaganda and dubbed themselves 'The Black-burn Resistance'.
Iqbal, of Percival Street, Black-burn, was sentenced to three years in jail at Manchester Crown Court two months ago.
Another terrorist linked to Kanmi was Albanian Krenar Lusha, 30, who was convicted by a jury at Preston Crown Court in December last year of five counts of possessing terror-related articles, and jailed for seven years.
Kanmi, still posing as Umar Rabie, had been in phone and internet contact with Lusha who was caught downloading a video on how to blow people up when police burst into his home in Derby.
Officers also discovered 71.8 litres of petrol in the cellar of Lusha's terrace house and computer documents such as 'The Bomb Book' and videos including 'Mobile Detonators'.
AN AMERICAN website moderator alerted police to a terror plot due to a message posted on the internet by a Blackburn man, a court heard.Read the rest here, but make sure to keep liquids away from the computer as the article goes on to describe the hilarious cross examination questions.
The moderator of the Infovlad forum website told Preston Crown Court he contacted the Metropolitan Police when a user named Sheikh posted that he would carry out a suicide mission in London.
The user’s IP address was traced to 23-year-old Ishaq Kanmi, of Cromwell Street, Audley, Black-burn, the court heard....
The moderator, who was giving evidence under the pseudonym of Rusty Shackleford after an order was granted to protect his identity, said: “Another moderator deleted the post, but I saved it and gave it to the police.
"I called someone at the Metropolitan Police and emailed to someone working in the counter-terrorism unit.”
He added that, after reading a BBC report that a Britain had announced he was the UK al Qaida leader, he emailed the former Infovlad user to ask if he was the same person.
The moderator told the court: “He replied ‘yes’ and there would be an announcement. It got my attention.”
Whether or not Kanmi really would have activated his cell and attempted to kill people is unknowable. The real problem with online jihadis like Kanmi is that although they may be too cowardly to "martyr" themselves, they may incite and inspire others to murder. And that is a problem.
Anyway, my involvement in the case was rather minor. The real thanks should go to the good people at Manchester's North West Counter Terrorism Unit for all their hard work. You know who you are. Good work people!
Kanmi is scheduled to be sentenced at a later time. One wonders how he is enjoying Belmarish prison so far?

WTF? Obama an Illegal Alien?
I have long been convinced that the Obama "birther" controversy was being kept alive by Chicago-way operatives in order to discredit Obama's critics.
But, this here is just bizarre:
NEW YORK – Two private investigators working independently are asking why President Obama is using a Social Security number set aside for applicants in Connecticut while there is no record he ever had a mailing address in the state.Now who, besides criminals and crimmigrants needs to fake a Social Security number?
In addition, the records indicate the number was issued between 1977 and 1979, yet Obama's earliest employment reportedly was in 1975 at a Baskin-Robbins ice-cream shop in Oahu, Hawaii.
Will the Puppet Media investigate? Is Clay Akins an intimidating macho beefcake?

The U.S. Census Bureau calls it landlord.
In gearing up for the 2010 Census, the General Services Administration (GSA) leased office space throughout the country. One location is a 6,654 square foot section of a two-story building on Edsall Road in Alexandria, Va. owned by the Dar Al-Hijrah mosque. The United States government is spending $582,000, or about $23,000 per month, to lease the space from November 2008 through the end of this year.
The GSA helped the Commerce Department find office space for the Census. A GSA spokeswoman did not respond to requests for comment or for clarification of the lease's true cost. Fairfax County property records indicate that Dar Al-Hijrah bought the 40,000-square-foot building in May 2008 for $5.8 million.
The Investigative Project on Terrorism obtained the reports referencing Dar al-Hijrah through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request seeking records related to a brief detention of Awlaki.
Those records were copies of TECS reports – a computer database operated by U.S. Customs and Border Protection. Some of the reports released to the IPT are redacted.

Update On Ron Gochez, Anti-Semitic History Teacher At Santee High School Los Angeles Calls For Mexican Revolt In The United States
My, my, little did I know when I stated Social Justice paging William Ayers Weather Underground... I was right.
A wealth of background information on Gochez at American Power.
I paused when I read this:
[...]Plus, Gochez is cited at the Workers World Party website, "ONE MILLION ON MAY DAY DEMAND: Stop Arizona Apartheid Law":Workers World Party
The Southern California Immigration Coalition contingent, wearing red shirts and carrying red, Mexican and Honduran flags and flags from other Latin American countries, represented one of the largest groups in the united protest. SCIC includes over 40 organizations; some of the major ones are Union del Barrio, BAYAN-USA, Service Employees Local 721 Latino Caucus, Latino Congresso and the International Action Center/Bail Out the People Movement.
Two of the rally emcees were Ron Gochez of Union del Barrio and Celina Benitez of the Committee in Solidarity with the People of El Salvador. Both are steering committee members of SCIC. They made comments and led chants that made it clear that any legislation calling for criminalization was not acceptable.
Workers World Party (WWP) is a revolutionary communist political party in the United States, founded in 1959 by a group led by Sam Marcy. Marcy and his followers split from the Socialist Workers Party in 1958 over a series of long-standing differences, among them Marcy's group's support for Henry A. Wallace's Progressive Party in 1948, the positive view they held of the Chinese Revolution led by Mao Zedong, and their defense of the 1956 Soviet intervention in Hungary, all of which the SWP opposed.Domestic terrorist Billy Ayers Weather Underground not mentioned right? Think again.
The WWP describes itself as a party that has, since its founding, "supported the struggles of all oppressed peoples". It has recognized the right of nations to self-determination, including the nationally oppressed peoples inside the United States. It supports affirmative action as absolutely necessary in the fight for equality.Social justice is the key phrase.
As well, it opposes all forms of racism and religious bigotry. Initially the WWP was confined to the Buffalo, New York area, where it had constituted the Buffalo and other smaller branches of the SWP, like Youngstown, Ohio, but expanded in the 1960s. During the Civil Rights Movement the WWP had a youth movement, "Youth Against War and Fascism", which opposed the Vietnam War. Workers World and YAWF were noted for their consistent defense of the Black Panthers and the Weather Underground along with Vietnam Veterans Against the War and the Puerto Rican Independence movement. Workers World Party was an early advocate of gay rights as well, and remains active in this area of struggle today.
The WWP has published a newspaper since 1959 titled Workers World, a weekly since 1974.

Earlier, Yemeni authorities claimed al-Awlaki was "just a preacher." Then, they said they were working on detaining him, but only waiting for U.S. to supply the necessary intelligence.Very well we should try al-Awlaki by Predator drone and if it accidentally on purpose hits Saleh too? Who gives a rats ass.
Now, whatever they do, if and when they feel like getting around to capturing him, he'll supposedly face trial in Yemen. That does not inspire confidence, given Yemen's track record for letting jihadists walk, and for the series of mixed signals on al-Awlaki prior to this announcement.
Act Like a Dhimmi
Muslim outrage — as with all human outrage — is predicated on how well it is tolerated. Continuously appeased, it becomes engorged and insistent on more concessions; ignored, it deflates and, ashamed of itself, withers away. Put differently, if you voluntarily act like a dhimmi — a subjugated non-Muslim who must live in debased humility — you will be treated like a dhimmi (including by being killed for the slightest offense); conversely, if you assert yourself like a freeman, you will be perceived as a freeman — even as you are hated.Hat Tip: Instapundit.
MSM The New & Improved 101: Rip Off A Blogger For His Research On Border Issues & Give It A Leftist Slant
A Jawa commenter linked to the pics etc, My apologies I didn't investigate this further. I can't find your comments/links.
This sux CBS did this to you...
MSM suckath[Big Journalism]
A former Vietnam veteran wanted the American people to know just how easy it was for illegal aliens to cross our southern border, so he set up cameras along the route and posted the video on his website. Many people came to his website, borderinvasionpics.com (BIP), including the local CBS affiliate in Phoenix, KPHO.
The affiliate was obviously so impressed with what they saw, they downloaded and used some of the video in a sympathetic piece on illegal aliens.
However, instead of obeying the rules of Journalism 101 and giving proper attribution to the person whose time and effort went into the creation of the ’shocking’ video, KPHO edited the footage into their own piece, zoomed in and cropped out the BIP logo and copyright, and inserted their CBS logo giving the viewing public the false impression the footage was a result of many months of hard work.
Thank you for your service sir. Damn, to see a Vietnam Vet being used for propaganda really puts my anger into fast mode. If that's a word or phrase dunno just know I am p**sed.

Jawa Exclusive: Capture Of Mullah Omar Confirmed *sticky*
An overseas intelligence source has confirmed to the Jawa Report that Mullah Omar has been captured as originally reported by Brad Thor.
You can wait for the New York Times to catch up if you'd like, we don't mind.
And then there's this, from The Nation of all places.
I wouldn't even be bothering to look into this now if I had not heard some parallel buzz about these rumors from military sources I actually trust. No one is confirming anything at all, but I am told there are some pretty unenthusiastic denials making their way through the special forces world.

Where's Rusty? The Horrible, Horrible Truth Edition
A eureka! moment at Disneyland's Star Tours yesterday. A horrible horrible eureka! moment. I'm pretty sure this is not the way Archimedes did it:
Ever notice that C3PO likes to hang around with little dudes? I always thought he was just, you know, gay -- which is creepy enough as it is -- but come on now, it wasn't just R2D2 and Luke: remember how he just loved those little ewoks?
To make things worse, think about how young little Ani Skywalker was when he first developed that "special relationship" with C3PO.
So, did C3PO know how to say "our little secret" fluently in Bachi, binary, and six million other forms of communications? I think so.
Also, this explains a lot about Anakin Skywalker's descent into the dark side over a woman. Can you say overcompensation?
So, maybe the "C" in C3PO stood for Chester, and maybe it didn't. All that I'm saying is that the next time an effete gold android offers free child care, think about taking a pass.

Yes. They actually MOVED a professional baseball game due to safety concerns from leftwing progressive protesters. For some reason, I don't think we'll be getting a lot of news coverage of this in the US press. Yes, it's Canada, but it's only Toronto.

Amputee Soldier Carries Torch at Warrior Games
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., May 11, 2010 – A soldier whose leg was amputated below the knee carried the torch into the Olympic Training Center here yesterday during opening ceremonies for the inaugural Warrior Games.Awesome! Good luck to all participating.
Army Sgt. Robert Price was the first servicemember to carry the torch before handing it over to representatives from each of the other services. Hall-of-Fame football player, U.S. Naval Academy graduate and Vietnam veteran Roger Staubach completed the short journey and lit the Olympic flame.
Price, who remained in the Army after losing his right leg to a roadside bomb in Iraq, is a cadre member at the warrior transition battalion at Brooke Army Medical Center in San Antonio. He was given the honor because he made sure other soldiers had the opportunity to compete as well.
“I helped out quite a bit [with] other posts that don’t have the training materials or for people to … get them out and do their training at my post,” he explained. “I just took the initiative [and] took over the BAMC part of it for the Warrior Games [to], get these guys to come in and start doing it at Fort Sam Houston.
“I was actually very surprised,” he continued. “I didn’t even expect [to carry the torch].”
He was happy to do it, though, especially because sports helped to keep him in the military. In fact, one of the reasons he decided to stay in the Army after losing his leg was to show other soldiers that they could, too.
God Bless him and all of our troops serving, served and those who gave all. You are my heroes.

Sandcrawler PSA: There Will Be No Jawa Report Iranian Edition
Rusty may never be able to read Jawa Report on his iPad.
Magazines planning to launch iPad editions for the Apple's glossy e-Reader device will have to censor themselves to make into Apple's No Porn app store, I heard yesterday.Jawa Report bringing you the hard hitting stories that matter most ;).
And we're not just talking about Nuts; "edgier" fashion magazines like Dazed & Confused and Vice will have to seriously cut back on nudity in photography and fashion shoots. New fashion bible LOVE famously launched a first edition with a naked photo shoot of Beth Ditto. That would not be alright with Steve Jobs.
A D&C insider revealed that the mag's iPad edition has been nicknamed the Iran edition by the people putting it together, given the parallels between censorship in the Muslim theocracy and the iTunes store.

Not So Warm Welcome for Mahmoud
Protests broke out Monday at a university in Tehran, Iran, where President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made a visit for an awards ceremony.
Members of the Islamic republic's opposition movement chanted anti-government slogans aimed at Ahmadinejad's hard-line regime outside Shahid Beheshti University in northern Tehran.
Video showed minor skirmishes breaking out between protesters and security, but no major clashes were evident.
The protests come a day after state media reported that five people, convicted of "anti-revolutionary" activities, were executed over the weekend.

Muslims Forced to Eat Pork
(Taipei, Taiwan) Three Indonesian Muslim women, identified as Tarsinah, Suswati and Wasilah, have accused their employer of forcing them to eat pork for seven months, contrary to their Islamic beliefs.
Taipei prosecutors on April 26 indicted Chang Wen-lin, the owner of Shin Hua Hang Fashion Co. Ltd., for forcing the three women to consume pork during their September 2008 to April 2009 employment.So the women's dilemma was to eat pork or be sent to Indonesia. Meanwhile, arguably-a-cheapskate Chang's pursuit of ka-ching leads to labor rights charges from Chen.
In their indictment the prosecutors said Chang believed that the meat "would give the women more stamina for work" and threatened to take money out of their salaries if they didn't eat it. […]
Susan Chen of the Taiwan International Workers Association said her organisation cared for the three women for three to four months beginning in April 2009 after they filed a complaint with Taipei county authorities and were removed from the factory by labour rights officials.
"They were distraught and afraid when they came to our shelter, partly because they thought they might be sent home," Chen said.
Suspected U.S. drones kill 14 militants(18 missiles fired by five drones)
When you have this much firepower aimed at one target it hints that there may have been a HVT there.
At least 14 militants were killed and several others injured Tuesday when five suspected U.S . drones fired missiles in Pakistan's tribal region, officials said.Updates when we get them....
The suspected drones fired 18 missiles at two vehicles and several compounds, according to officials.
Targets pounded are believed to be used by militants in the Data Khel area in North Waziristan, one of seven districts bordering Afghanistan.
Officials said the missiles were fired about 10 to 15 minutes apart

Breaking: Pakistan Captures Mullah Omar
Brad Thor has the exclusive story, link to come.
As a certain someone says, developing....
Update: And here we are.
Through key intelligence sources in Afghanistan and Pakistan, I have just learned that reclusive Taliban leader and top Osama bin Laden ally, Mullah Omar has been taken into custody.
According to the State Department’s Rewards for Justice Program there is a bounty of up to $10 million on Omar for sheltering Osama bin-Laden and his al-Qaeda network in the years prior to the September 11 attacks as well as the period during and immediately thereafter.
They know all right and so do we, at least when it comes to Mullah Omar. We have known since the end of March and we had it confirmed ten days ago by the Pakistanis. So why didn’t the State Department and the CIA know?

The TTP link to the Times Square bombing attempt and forward-looking analysis
The above leads one to the conclusion that the TTP had prior knowledge of the attack in NYC, though the precise nature of the links between Faisal Shahzad and the TTP is not clear. What is clear is that the TTP in general, and Hakeem-ullah Mehsud in particular, are angry and will be doing their best to carry out or facilitate additional attacks within the USA. It's one thing to use missiles to decapitate a terrorist organization - it's another matter altogether when one tries, but fails, leaving the target(s) knowing that they don't have long to live and so have nothing left to lose.Read more here.
In more general terms, we seem to be facing a threat that has grown to include multiple centers of gravity, including the syndicate of AQ-linked jihadi outfits in Pakistan (and affiliated Indian Muslims, e.g. SIMI, IM), and the AQ Arabian Peninsula/al-Shabaab confederacy. Both centers have connections to numerous individuals in the USA - both converts and 1st/2nd/3rd generation immigrants from Pakistan, Bangladesh, India, Yemen, and Somalia.
It is fashionable to dismiss al-Qaida fan clubs like Revolution Muslim as insignificant, because RM has so few members (the number 13 is often cited). The problem is that the social networks that are the foundation for Revolution Muslim are composed of over 18,000 people, many of whom are located in the USA or in countries whose citizens enjoy relatively free access to the United States (e.g. Britain). Do the math.
Yemen Refuses to Extradite Awlaki
Yemen says that they will try Yemeni-American Anwar Awlaki in Yemen, however jihad abroad is not illegal in Yemen. The law allows for sentences up to ten years for "forming an armed gang" with the intent to launch attacks within Yemen. The law has been used to prosecute kidnappers and Houthi rebels. USS Cole bomber Fahd al Quso is among the few al Qaeda operatives sentenced to ten years; he was released after three and is currently on the US's most wanted terrorists list. Awlaki is thought to still be in Shabwa province, along with al Quso. Awlaki's father is a former minister.
Yemen Post: Yemen will not extradite Anwar Al-Awlaki to the U.S. because the man is now wanted by the national government due to his recent terrorist activity, Foreign Minister Abu Bakr al-Qirbi has said.More Yemen news at AOL.
The man the U.S. wants to be extradited must stand trial in Yemen under the national law because he is now wanted by the Yemeni government due to his recent terrorist activity, the minister said in an interview with the Kuwaiti Al-Dar Newspaper.
Yemen's position over handing the man to the U.S. is clear and firm because we refuse to hand our people to other countries, he affirmed.
Two Afghan Men "Honor Raped"
(Jowzjan Province, Afghanistan) Two sons of local officials were honor raped by angry local farmers.
According to local media reports, a man named Yama, the 30-year-old son of the Jowzjan governor, and his friend Hashmatullah, the 28-year-old son of the provincial police chief, was seen by local herdsmen having sex with 24-year old Shokreya and 22-year-old Jamila.Sore backside vigilante justice is apparently not enough for the local population. They also want prosecution of the two sons.
The herdsmen allegedly stole the men's guns and money and gang raped them in retribution for the 'dishonor' they had committed by having sex with the two young women.
"The farmers tore the clothes of the two young men with sickles and raped them," a local official told Pajhwok Afghan News. The herdsmen later described to local organizations that the attack was an 'honor rape.'
As the story goes, the two men were left naked in the desert, only to return home covered by the women's burqas and unable to sit down due to their injuries.

Obama to Pick Elena "Butch" Kagan For Supreme Court
WASHINGTON – Solicitor General Elena Kagan will be nominated Monday to the Supreme Court by President Barack Obama, a person familiar with the president's thinking says, positioning the high court to have three women justices for the first time.On the bright side it appears she may be against limiting the number of calories in fast food.
Obama plans to announce his choice at 10 a.m. in the East Room of the White House. The source spoke on condition of anonymity because the decision, which came after a month long search, had not been made public.
Kagan is known as sharp and politically savvy and has enjoyed a blazing legal career. She was the first female dean of Harvard Law School, first woman to serve as the top Supreme Court lawyer for any administration, and now first in Obama's mind to succeed legendary liberal Justice John Paul Stevens.

Ongoing media cover-up in previously promoting Al-Qaeda imam Anwar Al-Awlaki as a moderate: New York Times edition
An article in yesterday's New York Times, "Imam’s Path From Condemning Terror to Preaching Jihad", is yet another example of how the establishment media is attempting to white-wash their past complicity in promoting Al-Qaeda cleric Anwar Al-Awlaki as a moderate. Here is the setup by the Times:
A contrasting version of Mr. Awlaki’s story, explored though never confirmed by the national Sept. 11 commission, maintains that he was a secret agent of Al Qaeda starting well before the attacks, when three of the hijackers turned up at his mosques. By this account, all that has changed since then is that Mr. Awlaki has stopped hiding his true views.
The tale that emerges from visits to his mosques, and interviews with two dozen people who knew him, is more complex and elusive. A product both of Yemen’s deeply conservative religious culture and freewheeling American ways, he hesitated to shake hands with women but patronized prostitutes. He was first enthralled with jihad as a teenager — but the cause he embraced, the defeat of Soviet troops in Afghanistan, was then America’s cause too. After a summer visit to the land of the victorious mujahedeen, he brought back an Afghan hat and wore it proudly around the Colorado State campus in Fort Collins where he studied engineering.
Later, Mr. Awlaki seems to have tried out multiple personas: the representative of a tolerant Islam in a multicultural United States (starring in a WashingtonPost.com video explaining Ramadan); the fiery American activist talking about Muslims’ constitutional rights (and citing both Malcolm X and H. Rap Brown); the conspiracy theorist who publicly doubted the Muslim role in the Sept. 11 attacks. (The F.B.I., he wrote a few days afterward, simply blamed passengers with Muslim names.)
Ah, you see, when you look at the matter objectively, the NYT authors claim, understanding his shift in public rhetoric is "complex and elusive". Why must they exclude the possibility (one accepted by the 9/11 Commission) that al-Awlaki was an al-Qaeda sleeper agent? Because after 9/11, Awlaki was one of the "moderates" that the establishment media turned to for understanding the "Muslim" perspective on the terror attacks. To admit that they were duped strikes at their continued credibility on terrorism. The New York Times and Washington Post are the biggest culprits in this.
In the NYT article, for instance, they attempt to give cover to the Washington Post, noting his appearance in a video on their website in November 2001 on Ramadan, characterizing his appearance as "the representative of a tolerant Islam in a multicultural United States". But when you actually look at the live chat from that Nov. 19, 2001 Washington Post interview, you find him defending the Taliban:
Alexandria, Va.: I saw your video on the Washington Post website this morning. Perhaps I am too biased as an American, but just what other avenues should or could the US have tried as opposed to as you put it - 'rushing into this war'?
Also, like we say 'Merry Christmas', is there any special greeting Muslims use during Ramadan?
Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki: The Taliban repeatedly said: show us the evidence and we will turn over whoever is guilty with the crime. The US should have given them the benefit of the doubt. Also our government could have dealt with the terrorist attacks as a crime against America rather than a war against America. So the guilty would be tried and only them would be punished rather than bombing an already destroyed country. I do not restrict myself to US media. I check out Aljazeerah and European media such as the BBC. I am seeing something that you are not seeing because of the one-sidedness of the US media. I see the carnage of Afghanistan. I see the innocent civilian deaths. That is why my opinion is different.
Keep in mind that I have no sympathy for whoever committed the crimes of Sep 11th. But that doesn't mean that I would approve the killing of my Muslim brothers and sisters in Afghanistan. Even though this is a dissenting view nowadays but as an American I do have the right to have a contrary opinion.
You can congratulate your Muslim friends with "Ramadan Mubarak"
Hmmm, defending the Taliban for their protection of Osama bin Laden and the Al-Qaeda leadership, and the Taliban's refusal to turn him over to the US after the 9/11 attacks doesn't appear to be very tolerant. Then again, I'm not a NYT reporter trying to cover-up for my colleagues.
What's interesting is that in all of the reporting by the Washington Post on Awlaki that I examined, not once did the Post acknowledge they had previously promoted the Al-Qaeda cleric in that Ramadan chat. Take for instance this Washington Post article in February 2008, "Imam From VA Mosque Now Thought to Have Aided Al-Qaeda". Not once in the article does reporter Susan Schmidt reveal that Awlaki had been their go-to "moderate" back in 2001. No mention of their post-9/11 promotion of Awlaki.
This goes for the NYT as well. In yesterday's article there is conveniently no mention that they too promoted Awlaki as "a new generation of Muslim leader capable of merging East and West" back in an October 19, 2001 article entitled, "Influential American Muslims Temper Their Tone":
Imam Anwar Al-Awlaki, spiritual leader at the Dar al-Hijra mosque in Virginia, one of the nation's largest, which draws about 3,000 worshipers for communal prayers each Friday, said: ''In the past we were oblivious. We didn't really care much because we never expected things to happen. Now I think things are different. What we might have tolerated in the past, we won't tolerate any more.''
''There were some statements that were inflammatory, and were considered just talk, but now we realize that talk can be taken seriously and acted upon in a violent radical way,'' said Mr. Al-Awlaki, who at 30 is held up as a new generation of Muslim leader capable of merging East and West: born in New Mexico to parents from Yemen, who studied Islam in Yemen and civil engineering at Colorado State University.
So it's no wonder that the establishment media is engaged in a widespread campaign to ignore their past dealings with Anwar Al-Awlaki, and now eager to offer a bogus narrative to cover-up their complicity in previously promoting Awlaki as a moderate. They refuse to acknowledge that they've been duped. This is understandable: If they admit their past failures it would lead the public to question who the establishment media is promoting as Islamic "moderates" today.

UCLA ProfessorHistory Teacher At Santee High School Los Angeles Calls For Mexican Revolt In The United States at La Raza Rally (Updated)
These young people, seriously, do not know who they are cheering for. Down with capitalism and imperialism? Hell, I see this on ehadi forums every day. They don't chant Viva Castro, but do chant down with "American Capitalism and Imperialism"(I know, this is a leftist thing too) ,but add Insha"Allah (God willing)
Hell, one of the go to places for most ehadi to surf is the Anti-Imperialist forum.
Social Justice paging William Ayers Weather Underground...
Ponder that thought...
Is Obi One and his Administration taking note of these professors? Probably not, they are too worried about the Tea Party patriots messing up their vision of the new America.
Update: He is not a professor at UCLA: Video of same speech

Sanchee H.S. history teacher Ron Gochez, La Raza Rally at UCLA
We are revolutionary Mexican organization here. We understand that this is not just about Mexico. Its about a global struggle against imperialism and capitalism At the forefront of this revolutionary movement is La Raza. We will no longer fall for these lies called borders. We see America as a northern front of a revolutionary movement Our enemy is capitalism and imperialism.

Times Square Bomber was Known Internet Jihadi
We found traces of people named "Faisal Shahzad" all over the internet, and even some using variants of the Times Square bomber's email address. Some of them on forums which seemed to be sympathetic to Salafi jihadism, and others? Not so much. In fact, one "fshahzad" seemed to be arguing explicitly against the Deobandi - Hanafi Sunni branch of Islam favored by the Taliban. Unfortunately both Faisal and Shahzad are very common names.
But I didn't find the posts at The World Islamic Mission Fourm discussed by Jim Hoft and cited by Fox News here. I'd be very interested in seeing what he posted, but as I'm on the road I'm unable to do the research myself and would appreciate it much if someone could send a link.
And what more can I say than Jim already said? Other than that expressing jihad sympathies on the internet ought to be considered prima facie evidence of intent to break the law. Someone like that not only should not have been allowed to become a citizen, but also should have been under close watch.
Further, if he was expressing jihad sympathies back in 2006, then Shahzad lied on several INS forms. Whether or not Sen. Lieberman's idea of stripping citizenship from jihadis ever comes to fruition or not, lying on INS forms is a felony and is grounds to have his citizenship revoked.

Everybody Draw A POSITIVE Mohammed Day
We are not haters. Everybody has heard by now about Everybody Draw Mohammed Day on May 20 - a grassroots campaign sparked by Islamist death threats to South Park's Kenny McCormick, Eric Cartman, and Kyle Broflovsky. The general presumption is that on this day the Internet is going to be filled with negative images of Mohammed. Not true.Hilarious!!
We on this site are sounding our unanimous NO to negativity! We are preemptively opposing it with our own positive, loving images of Mohammed that will raise awareness and educate the nonbelievers about the correct way to treat the Muslim community and vice versa.
Thanks to Barbarossa.

Ohio woman abducted by her Muslim family, threatened to be sent back to Yemen for marrying Christian
A hat-tip to JihadWatch for this. A Youngstown, Ohio-area woman was rescued by police in Pennsylvania after being abducted by her family, who told her they were driving her to New Jersey and she would be sent back to Yemen.
From the Youngstown Vindicator:
A Campbell woman of Yemeni descent says she was abducted by her parents and taken to Hermitage, Pa., where they threatened to send her back to her homeland.
The victim, 32, told police she was leaving a doctor's appointment at an office on U.S. Route 224 when her father came up behind her, grabbed her in a bear hug and put her in the back seat of her car.
The father then got into the driver's seat, and her mother in the back seat with her. They drove to the Sheetz gas station in Hermitage.
No charges have been filed.
"I'm still gathering information and still trying to talk to witnesses," said Boardman Detective Glenn Patton.
The woman told police that her parents, who are Muslim, don't approve of her marriage to a Christian man.
Reached Friday, the woman, who was born in the United States, said she's OK and she wasn't injured.
Unidentified men brought the rental van the woman's parents had been driving to Sheetz, she told police. The men then took the woman's car. Police entered the car as a stolen vehicle.
She and her parents argued, and the parents told her that her brother was going to meet them, take her to New Jersey and that she would be sent to Yemen.
The woman sent her husband a text message, telling him she needed help.
Her husband went to Campbell schools, where his wife's daughter is a student, to remove her from school. Campbell Police Detective Sgt. John Rusnak said the husband was concerned that the girl was in danger and wanted to remove her from school.
While at the school, the husband encountered Sean Kilbane, the school-resource officer, Rusnak said, and relayed the story. Kilbane spent 11 months in Afghanistan while in the military and advised the husband to involve police.
Police called the woman's father's cell phone, but he told them he was at work. When police called his work place, they were told he wasn't at work that day, Rusnak said.
Patrolman John Gulu, who coaches the daughter's softball team, was able to reach the woman on her cell phone.
"The first thing he asked was, 'Are you OK? Are you safe?'" Rusnak said. "She said, 'No.'"
To keep from raising her parents' suspicions, Gulu asked yes-and-no questions, interspersed with questions about softball in case the woman's parents listened, the detective said.
Gulu learned the woman’s cell phone provider and another officer, Patrolman Dan Burich, contacted the company. The company, using GPS, gave police an approximate location for the cell-phone signal.
Campbell police contacted police in Hermitage and provided them with a description of the vehicle and the location. Hermitage police stopped the van and took the woman to their department, where she was picked up by her husband.
“At that point, we didn’t know what we had,” Rusnak said. “All we knew was that there was a person in a van who didn’t feel safe. We weren’t concerned with charges at that point. We were worried about her safety.”
No doubt Ohio Homeland Security Community Engagement Officer Omar Alomari is en route to inform authorities how this is just one big cultural misunderstanding and how police should be required to attend CAIR's cultural sensitivity training to rid them of their Islamophobia. And surely the Columbus Dispatch's crack religion reporter Meredith "Hijab" Heagney will be reporting how this abducted women really wasn't in danger and this incident has nothing to do with Islam, much like she has in the Rifqa Bary case.
Ace blazes on Newsweek sale, demise of leftist establishment media
This lengthy commentary by Ace should be engraved in marble and used as America's tombstone.
For liberals, lying about one's liberalism is a feature, not a bug.
Liberals love outrageously liberal publications which pretend to be neutral. The New York Times. CNN. The Washington Post (in the main; here and there it departs from orthodoxy).
The entire MFM is premised upon this lie.
And liberals love it.
Liberals love being instructed that their opinions are not liberal at all, because if their opinions are liberal, that implies a choice has been made, and if there ever was in fact a choice, that implies (though it does not prove) that another choice was possible and even legitimate, and liberals are not fond of acknowledging that opinions contrary to their own have some merit.
They prefer being instructed that their opinions are not opinions at all, but facts and/or simple common sense and/or the manifestly just and right way to view the world.
They do not usually acknowledge their politics as matters of ethics, in which one's responsibilities, duties, and rights depend upon one's starting assumptions about what is to be more or less highly valued, which is, in itself, largely an arbitrary (or at least highly arguable) choice.
People can debate ethics.
They prefer to view their politics as a matter of strict black and white morality in which their view is not arguably the more ethical or sound one, but in which their view is Good (capital G optional), and the opposite politics are Evil (capital E required.)
One can debate such ethical dilemmas such as whether it's better to see your kid go hungry or steal a loaf of bread from another family.
One can't argue, really, whether or not it's better to do Good than it is to do Evil.
Liberals favor the latter formulation. And because they've had 60 year of stultifying reinforcement of their prejudices by a lockstep MFM and academy, they've gotten quite accustomed to that formulation, and actually tend to get emotionally angry when it's suggested they've not really chosen Good over Evil so much as their idiosyncratic and arbitrary preference for one good (no capital g) over another, arguably just-as-valuable good.
Oh yes, there's much more. Read it all!
9/11 Firefighter opposes mosque at Ground Zero as "a Trojan horse rolled onto our most sacred ground", asks "Where is the money coming from?"
A decision by a Lower Manhattan community board this week gives the go-ahead for a $100 million mosque to locate beside the Ground Zero site. But not everyone is happy with the decision, including those who survived the attacks and the families of those murdered by Islamic terrorists on 9/11.
In this Fox NY interview below on Thursday, 9/11 firefighter Tim Brown describes the mosque project as "a Trojan horse being rolled into our most sacred ground". He squared off with the mosque's imam, Feisal Abdul Rauf, asking whether any of the money for this mosque will be coming from the regimes of Islamic countries who have actively aided and financed Islamic terrorists, and where Rauf got the reported $4.85 million in cash to purchase the building, prompting profuse evasion and side-stepping by the imam.
Tim Brown is one of the few 9/11 survivors to survive the collapse of both WTC towers. He also a first responder to the 1993 WTC bombing by another group of Islamic terrorists. Here is his story on what happened on 9/11:
On the morning of Sept. 11th, Tim Brown had recently arrived at his office. Tim was working in a year and half long detail from FDNY’s Res3cue to the NYC Mayor’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) located in 7 World Trade, when the first plane struck the World Trade Center tower. He immediately responded to the command post set up in the lobby of WTC Tower One. After the 2nd plane struck, he was directed to WTC Tower Two. There he attempted to set up and maintain some type of command structure in the chaos of the lobby...
Just before the first collapse, Tim had exited the lobby of Tower 2 and gone across the street to gather up an EMS crew to assist the rescue efforts in the lobby of that tower. He was just re-entering the lobby with EMS when he heard the rumble and felt the earth move. Instinctively, he knew what was happening. He and the EMS crew scattered...
As one of the world’s tallest buildings collapsed all around him, Tim ducked into the first open door he could find, the doorway to the Tall Ships Restaurant at the WTC Marriott Hotel, located directly between the towers. There he found a substantial support beam, and held on for his life, as the 110 story building came crashing down around him. Everything went dark; the wind created by the collapsing structure blew off his helmet, his phones, and his pagers and lifted him off his feet. Then, as quickly as it began, it ended. Tim managed to escape through the debris to the street level, where he began to assist in searching for trapped members giving “mayday” calls heard over the radios...
As WTC Tower One collapsed, Tim was with the FDNY brass and city leaders at the northwest corner of the WTC complex. He, along with everyone else in lower Manhattan , ran for his life, again. Tim ran north. As the dust cloud began to overtake him, he saw two young women duck into an open door on a side street. They were kind enough to offer him refuge. There he also found a working phone.
Read all of Tim Brown's testimony before the WTC Task Force.

Times Square Bomber's "Substantial" Taliban Connections
Hmmmm, one wonders if these regular and substantial connctions were virtual or meat world? If they were virtual, it would go along way in harmonizing the conflicting narratives:
Shahzad’s connection to the Taliban was “regular” and “substantial,” says a U.S. official who spoke on the condition of anonymity. shahzad linked up with the Pakistani Taliban online, according to separate law enforcement and intelligence officials close to the investigation, making him their first known Western recruit.~Rusty's iPhone.

Before he was fatally shot on Tuesday (May 4) in Xarardheere, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) from Jowhar, 57-year-old Yusuf Ali Nur had been on a list of people the Islamic extremist al Shabaab suspected of being Christian, sources who spoke on condition of anonymity told Compass.

Jawa Report Continually Omitted From Mailing List
Hollywood continues to leave our name off their mailing list. I guess we are not included in their dhimmified social group.
Don't mess with Allah. That's the new, unwritten code in Hollywood following the one-two punch of Islamic extremists' threats against the creators of "South Park" and the failed bombing attempt outside the cartoon’s parent company, Viacom, in New York's Times Square.
In the current, supercharged climate, it just isn’t worth endangering the safety of an entire production staff or network by pursuing a storyline that Muslim extremists might find offensive, media executives and writers tell Fox411.com.

U.S. Military Cyber Warrior Badge
The U.S. Air Force unit responsible for conducting warfare in cyberspace has instituted its own set of wings to be worn on the chests of all military digital warriors.
Air Force Cyberspace Badge
An editor for Wired magazine said the badge is lame and it sucks. It's believed that the badge will clash with the grubby, heavy-metal T-shirts often worn by some of the most accomplished cyber geeks.
In any event, it's easy to imagine the military overseeing cyber geeks as similar to a dog herding cats.
Hostages: Andre Durant, Callie Scheepers, Johann Enslin and Hardus Greeff Are Alive
Andre Durant and his colleagues who were kidnapped in Iraq are alive. The best proof of life after they were kidnapped three-and-a-half years ago was a clandestine phone call to his older brother, Pierre.They have been torutured and only given food every third day. Be sure to read it all.
"It was Andre. I spoke to him in Afrikaans and asked him three questions that only he would know the answers to," Durant stated.
Andre's wife, Lourika, said: "I nearly jumped out of my skin from joy when I heard about the call. My husband is really alive."
Andre, Hardus Greeff, Callie Scheepers and Johann Enslin were working as security guards for Safenet Security Services in Iraq when they were stopped by men in police uniforms on December 10, 2006.[Read it all]
I pray someone, somewhere finds them soon and reunites them with their families.

Shock: Internet Key to Times Square Bomber's Radicalization
At some point the clue bat will connect with the heads of our nation's policy makers. I'm afraid, though, that it will come in the form of a major successful attack. WaPo:
A senior law enforcement official said that Shahzad told interrogators he had watched Aulaqi's videos on the Web and that he indicated the cleric had inspired him. Shahzad himself does not appear to have communicated with Aulaqi, who is known for his online postings advocating violence against the West.Of course, it is a major oversimplification to imagine Shahzad a mindless robot who did whatever the Anwar al-Awlaki's YouTube videos told him to do. People have many different motives and the transformation from jihad sympathizer on the internet to actual jihadi cannot be traced to a single cause. But it is a mistake to discount radical Islamism's online presence as outside the causal stream. And it's an even worse mistake to assume that nothing can be done about it. It can.
Think of violent Islamism on the internet like child pornography. No, we will never get rid of it altogether. But neither should we do nothing at all. Reasonable steps can and should be taken to make this kind of propaganda harder to find.
On a related note, go check out Aaron at Internet Haganah's analysis of what the Times Square plot might mean in terms of future terror attacks. Remember, there is often a trade-off between the impact of an attack and it's likelihood. As violent Islamist groups realize that grandiose 9/11 style attacks are infeasible, they will direct their resources to smaller scale attacks which don't do nearly the same damage but which are much easier to pull off.
