ROPMA Abusive Parenting: Mother jailed for starving her seven-year-old daughter to death

ROPMA child abuse.jpg
Khyra Ishaq weighed just 2st 7lb when she died in May 2008 - despite living in a house with a well-stocked kitchen

Angela Gordon, the mother, is complaining of not having enough to eat while in prison. Beotch has gained weight.

DailyMail

Khyra suffered for months at the hands of Gordon and her schizophrenic boyfriend Junaid Abuhamza - who was given an indefinite sentence for manslaughter - before her death.

She was beaten with a bamboo cane, forced to stand outside in her underwear for hours and had lost 40 per cent of her body weight when she died[...]

She and five other children in the house were fed 'like puppies' from bowls in their upstairs bedroom in Handsworth, Birmingham, the court heard.

This was part of a code introduced by Abuhamza, a Muslim convert, to teach them the 'Islamic perspective about being dutiful to your parents'.

He cut down portions and then denied them meals altogether when he felt they misbehaved.

Khyra died in a 'skeletal condition' in a house with an 'abundance of food', despite being monitored and visited by at least nine social workers, education officers, teachers and police.[More..]

Gawd, is this PC gone wild? or what..

RIP little one.

Pakistan Tried to Trade CIA Contractor for 'Lady al Qaeda'

Our "allies" want to make a deal.

ABC

According to a senior American administration official and a Pakistani official involved in the negotiations to free CIA contractor Raymond Davis, the Pakistani government proposed trading Davis for Aafia Siddiqui, an MIT-educated Pakistani neuroscientist currently serving 86 years in federal prison for attempted murder.

The offer was immediately dismissed by the U.S. government. "The Pakistanis have raised it," the U.S. official said. "We are not going to pursue it."

The proposal is the latest in a series of efforts to break an impasse between Washington and Islamabad over Davis. The CIA contractor has been held by Pakistani authorities since late January for shooting and killing two men he says were following his car and tried to rob him.

Siddiqui was convicted of trying to shoot F.B.I. agents and military officers in an Afghanistan police station in 2008. Siddiqui had been arrested the day before after being found with a list of New York city landmarks and instructions on how to construct explosives.

In 2004, F.B.I. director Robert Mueller described Siddiqui as an "al Qaeda operative and facilitator." The F.B.I. had issued a global alert for Siddiqui and her first husband in 2003, for their suspected ties to al Qaeda. Siddiqui later remarried to an al Qaeda operative, who was the nephew of the 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Muhammed. The husband, Ammar al-Baluchi is currently being detained at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba

This was prolly the plan all along.

Nigeria: Muslims storm Christian village, murder mother and her four children

ROPMA

JOS, Nigeria — An overnight attack has killed at least four people in tense central Nigeria, a region regularly hit by violence between Christian and Muslim ethnic groups, the military said Monday.

The pre-dawn attack occured in Dabwak, a mainly Christian village near the flashpoint city of Jos.

"There are four killed," Brigadier General Hassan Umaru, commander of a military unit deployed in the area, told AFP.

Locals said five people -- a mother and four children -- were shot and killed, blaming Fulani Muslims for the attack.

Where is the outrage? Oh yeah, it's Islamophobic to be outraged.

Democratic Rep. Gordon Hintz To Female Republican Colleague: "You Are F**King Dead!"

hintz-litiens.jpg

From 620 WTMJ via Gateway Pundit:

State Rep. Gordon Hintz was issued a municipal citation in Appleton earlier this month for violating a city sexual misconduct ordinance.

Appleton police said the citation was issued Feb. 10 in conjunction with an ongoing investigation of Heavenly Touch Massage Parlor, 342 W. Wisconsin Ave., in Appleton. Police searched the business and a nearby residence in the 1300 block of North Division Street Jan. 28, after investigators had staked out the properties for several days after receiving a tip.

Last Friday.... after the Assembly voted to engross the Budget Repair Bill, Hintz turned to a female colleague, Rep. Michelle Litjens and said: "You are F***king dead!"

Obama: Don't "Vilify" Protesters

Obama has decided to stay out of the Wisconsin Union issue except to say we shouldn't disparage the many pro-Union protesters now occupying the Wisconsin Capital Building and grounds:

Obama said he understands the fiscal challenges facing cash-strapped states and that everyone should be prepared "to give something up." But he said that shouldn't mean public employees are "vilified" during budget debates.

...Obama, though a clear supporter of union rights, has endeavored to stay out of the debate, with his advisers describing it as a local issue.

Don't vilify this guy:

Word about the accidental resetting of Gmail accounts has been spreading on the Internet in the last two days as users Tweeted that their e-mail accounts have been stripped clean of all e-mails, attachments and chat logs collected in them over the years.

Google itself confirmed the glitch and its results, saying that less than 0.08% of the Google Mail user base has been affected. The issues has still not been resolved and some users still can't access their accounts.

Yet Another al Qaeda Video on YouTube. Also, who's arming al Qaeda?

I actually have mixed feelings about this al Qaeda propaganda video being hosted by Google's YouTube.

On the one hand we have an American company helping spread enemy propaganda during a time of war. We used to call that treason, today it's free speech.

On the other hand the video does kind of make al Qaeda look like a bunch of retards. I mean, they manage to get precisely two of five rockets to actually hit a target that looks like it's maybe a 1000 x 500 yards. Dude, and you guys are proud of that?

Next video: Achmed hits broadside of barn at point blank range, crowds cheer!

I guess my question is where are they getting these munitions in the first place. Here's a screen shot of them. Are there any identifying markers that would give a clue as to who is arming al Qaeda with these heavier munitions? I know it's pretty simple to pick up an AK-47 down at the bazaar, but these babies?

al-Shabaab Forces Captured Soldier to Call Families of Murdered Captives to Inform Them of Their Son's Murder

Terror Free Somalia:

AU troops with their fellow Somali soldiers have advanced to new areas and succeeded in conquering new areas including the former building of Shirkole officiale and the former building of the Ministry of Defense.

In fact the confrontation between the bilateral sides was so fierce and lasted for several hours in sequence, and in the mid of the battle 6 of Burundian infantry soldiers who have gone stray have fallen into the hands of Al-Shabab, and this has happened because many reasons the AU troops can simply differentiate the Somali government troops and Al-Shabab fighters, because both have duplicate camouflage uniform.

The Al-Shabab fighters have killed 5 out of the 6 soldiers who have lost their direction, and among them was only one Ugandan and the rest of the soldiers were from Burundi.

Thus the smart technique which Al-Shabab which has used was they have collect all the cell-phones of the dead AU troops, and have instructed the only alive Burundian soldier to call and inform the families and relatives of the killed soldiers, and hearing the sad news the wailing of women could be heard.

The life in hand Burundian soldier whose name is Nzumba has also informed the families and relatives of the deceased soldiers to rally and demonstrate their grievances to the Ministry of Defense.

Rahn notes that the website that al-Shabaab, a specially designated terrorist entity as declared by the US Dept of State, uses to spread its propaganda is hosted in Michigan.

Also of note that their favorite platform for spreading Jihadi video propaganda is, you guessed it, Youtube.

R.I.P. Frank Buckles

CNN:

Frank Buckles, the last U.S. World War I veteran, has died, a spokesman for his family said Sunday. He was 110.
Buckles "died peacefully in his home of natural causes" early Sunday morning, the family said in a statement sent to CNN late Sunday by spokesman David DeJonge.

Buckles marked his 110th birthday on February 1, but his family had earlier told CNN he had slowed considerably since last fall, according his daughter Susannah Buckles Flanagan, who lives at the family home near Charles Town, West Virginia.

Buckles, who served as a U.S. Army ambulance driver in Europe during what became known as the "Great War," rose to the rank of corporal before the war ended. He came to prominence in recent years, in part because of the work of DeJonge, a Michigan portrait photographer who had undertaken a project to document the last surviving veterans of that war.

As the years continued, all but Buckles had passed away, leaving him the "last man standing" among U.S. troops who were called "The Doughboys."

The Man In The Doorway

Transcript below the fold.

The Man In The Doorway

A poem by Michael Ryerson, USMC, FAC, 1966-1968, RVN

Tribute to the Door Gunner

They came in low and hot, close to the trees and dropped their tail in a flare, rocked forward and we raced for the open doorways. This was always the worst for us, we couldn't hear anything and our backs were turned to the tree line.

The best you could hope for was a sign on the face of the man in the doorway, leaning out waiting to help with a tug or to lay down some lead.

Sometimes you could glance quickly at his face and pick up a clue as to what was about to happen. We would pitch ourselves in headfirst and tumble against the scuffed riveted aluminum, grab for a handhold and will that son-of-a-bitch into the air.

Sometimes the deck was slick with blood or worse, sometimes something had been left in the shadows under the web seats, sometimes they landed in a shallow river to wash them out.

Sometimes they were late, sometimes...they were parked in some other LZ with their rotors turning a lazy arc, a ghost crew strapped in once too often, motionless, waiting for their own lift, their own bags, once too often into the margins.

The getting on and the getting off were the worst for us but this was all he knew, the man in the doorway, he was always standing there in the noise, watching, urging...swinging out with his gun, grabbing the black plastic and heaving, leaning out and spitting, spitting the taste away, as though it would go away...

They came in low and hot, close to the trees and dropped their tail in a flare, rocked forward and began to kick the boxes out, bouncing against the skids, piling up on each other, food and water, and bullets...a thousand pounds of C's, warm water and rounds, 7.62mm, half a ton of life and death.

And when the deck was clear, we would pile the bags, swing them against their weight and throw them through the doorway, his doorway, onto his deck and nod and he'd speak into that little mic and they'd go nose down and lift into their last flight, their last extraction.

Sometimes he'd raise a thumb or perhaps a fist or sometimes just a sly, knowing smile, knowing we were staying and he was going but also knowing he'd be back, he'd be back in a blink, standing in the swirling noise and the rotor wash, back to let us rush through his door and skid across his deck and will that son-of-a-bitch into the air.

They came in low and hot, close to the trees and dropped their tail in a flare, rocked forward, kicked out the boxes and slipped the litter across the deck and sometimes he'd lean down and hold the IV and brush the dirt off of a bloodless face, or hold back the flailing arms and the tears, a thumbs-up to the right seat and you're only minutes away from the white sheets and the saws and the plasma.

They came in low and hot, close to the trees and dropped their tail in a flare, rocked forward and we'd never hear that sound again without feeling our stomachs go just a bit weightless, listen just a bit closer for the gunfire and look up for the man in the doorway.

Canadian confirmed missing in Afghanistan after Taliban claim of capture

Developing..

CanadianPress

OTTAWA - The federal government says a Canadian is missing in Afghanistan following a report that the Taliban is claiming they have captured someone from Canada.

A Department of Foreign Affairs spokesman says Canadian officials are aware of the Taliban statement.

The spokesman says a man identified as Colin Rutherford is missing in Afghanistan after travelling to the country as atourist.

Tourist?

Could this be him? [note: removed video due to fact the person in video may not be him]

Prayers for his safety.

Thanks to ZH#3

Update: Naturally Taliban is calling him a spy.

A Canadian man who has been kidnapped by the Taliban in Afghanistan is a tourist, according to the Canadian government.

The Taliban issued a statement in which it said the man, identified as Colin Rutherford by the Canadian government, had documents that reveal "clandestine intelligence activities" in his possession.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid said the man had been captured in Ghazni city, south-west of Kabul.

But the Canadian government says Mr Rutherford is a tourist.

"Canadian officials are working with Afghan authorities to assist the family in securing the safe release of their loved one," a spokeswoman for the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade said[...]

The statement from the Taliban said they would release a video of Mr Rutherford soon.

Israeli song "Zenga, Zenga" (w/ D.J. Gaddafi) strikes a chord with Libyan rebels

"Muammar Gaddafi - Zenga Zenga Song - Noy Alooshe Remix + Download"

JPost

"Zenga Zenga," a YouTube clip, has gone viral amongst Libyan rebels in the past few days. What many of those opposing Libyan ruler Muammar Gaddafi don't realize is that the video, a mash-up of Gaddafi's speech and the hip-hop song "Hey Baby," is from Israel[...]

The video, which had nearly 400,000 hits on its original version and another 40,000 in the bikini-free version, was created by Israeli musician Noy Alooshe.

Nearly all of the comments on the video are in Arabic, with viewers debating in the talkbacks whether it is permissible to enjoy humor from an Israeli.

Ha!

Gaddafi forces abandon Tripoli neighborhoods

Is the Endgame near?

Al Arabiya

Poor neighborhoods of the Libyan capital Tripoli openly defied Muammar Gaddafi on Saturday as his grip on power after 41 years of rule looked increasingly tenuous in the face of nationwide revolt.

Security forces had abandoned the working-class Tajoura district after five days of anti-government demonstrations, residents told foreign correspondents who visited the area.

The residents said troops opened fire on demonstrators who tried to march from Tajoura to central Green Square overnight, killing at least five people. The number could not be independently confirmed.

A funeral on Saturday morning for one of the victims turned into another show of defiance against Gaddafi.

"Everyone in Tajoura came out against the government. We saw them killing our people here and everywhere in Libya," a man who identified himself as Ali, aged 25, told Reuters

Let's hope this means he is giving up and not planning to unleashing something sinister on his own people.

Islam's Demonacracy: Egyptian Armed Forces Demolish Fences Guarding Coptic Monasteries (Bumped-Updated)

How very ROPMA of them

(AINA) - Egyptian armed forces this week demolished fences surrounding ancient Coptic monasteries, leaving them vulnerable to attacks by armed Arabs, robbers and escaped prisoners, who have seized the opportunity of the state of diminished protection by the authorities in Egypt to carry out assaults and thefts.

"Three monasteries have been attacked by outlaws and have asked for protection from the armed forces, but were told to defend themselves." said activist Mark Ebeid. "When the terrified monks built fences to protect themselves, armed forces appeared only then with bulldozers to demolish the fences. It is worth noting that these monasteries are among the most ancient in Egypt, with valuable Coptic icons and manuscripts among others, which are of tremendous value to collectors."

h/t B'Emet Or

Update: The Egyptian armed forces did more than destroy their 'fences', they attacked the Coptics.

Via ZH#3[BTW, nice rant..I agree]:

(AINA) -- For the second time in as many days, Egyptian armed force stormed the 5th century old St. Bishoy monastery in Wadi el-Natroun, 110 kilometers from Cairo. Live ammunition was fired, wounding two monks and six Coptic monastery workers. Several sources confirmed the army's use of RPG ammunition. Four people have been arrested including three monks and a Coptic lawyer who was at the monastery investigating yesterday's army attack.

Monk Aksios Ava Bishoy told activist Nader Shoukry of Freecopts the armed forces stormed the main entrance gate to the monastery in the morning using five tanks, armored vehicles and a bulldozer to demolish the fence built by the monastery last month to protect themselves and the monastery from the lawlessness which prevailed in Egypt during the January 25 Uprising.

"When we tried to address them, the army fired live bullets, wounding Father Feltaows in the leg and Father Barnabas in the abdomen," said Monk Ava Bishoy. "Six Coptic workers in the monastery were also injured, some with serious injuries to the chest."

Cont'd below fold.

The injured were rushed to the nearby Sadat Hospital, the ones in serious condition were transferred to the Anglo-Egyptian Hospital in Cairo.

Father Hemanot Ava Bishoy said the army fired live ammunition and RPGs continuously for 30 minutes, which hit part of the ancient fence inside the monastery. "The army was shocked to see the monks standing there praying 'Lord have mercy' without running away. This is what really upset them," he said. "As the soldiers were demolishing the gate and the fence they were chanting 'Allahu Akbar' and 'Victory, Victory'."

He also added that the army prevented the monastery's car from taking the injured to hospital.

As the violent protests in Libya continue, Israel National News TV visited the Libyan Jewry Heritage Center in Israel to hear the feelings of those Jews who came from Libya.

"My feeling is not good," said Meir Kachlon, Chairman of the World Organization
of Libyan Jews[...]

He noted that before Qaddafi took over, Libya had ancient synagogues, all of which are gone and some of which have become mosques. But the worst part, he said, is the ancient Jewish cemetery in Tripoli.

There was a whole cemetery in Tripoli, 130 acres in size, on top of which buildings were constructed, complete with roads and everything," said Kachlon.

"Qaddafi crushed all the graves and threw them into the sea. The world was silent. When they saw him doing it, nobody asked: ‘What is he doing to that cemetery? Why did he destroy the Jewish cemetery?’”

Non-Sarcastic Good News: Yet Another Leader of al Qaeda in Iraq Bites the Dust

Remember way back when we used to fret over al Qaeda in Iraq? Not so much anymore, but the group continues to kill innocent Iraqis -- mostly Shia and Christians. So, his death is a bit of good news on an otherwise gloomy news day.

He's the guy that replaced Abu Ayyub al-Masri who in turn had replaced Abu Musab al Zarqawi. You might remember Abu Musab al-Zarqawi from such hits as "hey, let's cut off the infidels head and then put the video up on the internet".

Fox News:

An Iraqi official says Iraqi security forces have killed the top military leader of the Islamic State of Iraq, an al-Qaida linked group responsible for bombings and suicide attacks across Iraq.

Maj. Gen. Qassim al-Moussawi told The Associated Press on Friday that authorities killed al-Nasser Lideen Allah Abu Suleiman during an operation on Thursday.

He was the group's war minister. The ISI is an umbrella group that includes al-Qaida in Iraq.

Slaughter in Aden Yemen Now, Update: 17 killed

Update: As the sun rises in Aden Saturday, 17 persons were killed overnight in in six locations, that's an early figure, and dozens wounded. Details, links here. Video and live blogging the massacre below the fold.

Original: There are wounded persons and dead bodies in the streets that no one can get to because of the central security forces (CSF) are shooting live rounds. Tanks moved in earlier today and CSF had new large weapons that residents hadn't seen before. One person identified them as anti-aircraft machine guns and said they were strafing residential homes. Snipers were positioned on the roofs and remain there. Ambulances are blocked. There is an urgent need for blood and medicine. Heavy gunfire is ongoing. Dozens are wounded. Seventeen fatalities were counted as follows, but the evenings death toll will likely rise. The lights are off.

This video was shot in front of the Aden Hotel in Khormakser, Aden as people ran from the gunfire:

This video shows one of the many peaceful protests around Aden today where police opened fire:

Dead are as follows:
7 dead in Al-Areesh
4 dead in Khormakser
2 confirmed + unconfirmed # in Malla
1 dead in Tawahi
2 dead in Mansoura
1 Dead in Salahudin.

The state allowed live coverage of the student's protests in Sana'a, but barred journalists from Aden. President Saleh made an announcement yesterday ordering police to protect protesters that received a lot of coverage. Twitter is down. Below the fold Human Rights Watch verified one death in Muallah when police shot into the crowd as they were chanting "peaceful peaceful" earlier. HRW is identifying the new weapon as a "military assault weapon." Their report ends at 10 pm Aden time, which was five hours ago. Its 3 am there now, and there's still shooting.

Al Tagheer (ar) listed 19 killed and 124 injured in the prior week in Aden alone.


Yemen: Security Forces Kill Aden Protester
At Least a Dozen Wounded in Shootings on Peaceful Protests

(Aden, February 25, 2011) – Government security forces opened fire on peaceful anti-government protesters in several areas of the Yemeni port city of Aden on February 25, 2011, killing one demonstrator and wounding at least a dozen others, Human Rights Watch today.

The security forces opened fire in the afternoon in the al-Mu’alla district as more than 1,000 protesters chanting “peaceful, peaceful,” and carrying posters reading “peaceful” stopped about 100 meters from a line of approximately 100 military, police, and other security forces, the witness said. President Ali Abdullah Saleh had two days earlier promised to prevent clashes at anti-government demonstrations and protect the rights of protesters to assemble peacefully.

“Two days after President Saleh promised to halt all attacks on peaceful protesters, there is more bloodshed,” said Joe Stork, deputy Middle East and North Africa director at Human Rights Watch. “Other countries, including The United States, the United Kingdom, and Saudi Arabia, need to press Yemen to stop these senseless and illegal attacks.”

At least one security officer stepped out and opened fire with a military assault weapon without giving a warning, the witness told Human Rights Watch. He said the gunman wore the gray uniform of the National Security Bureau. Police then immediately opened fire, shooting both into the air and straight at the crowd, and also fired teargas at the protesters, the witness said.

“Suddenly I heard screams, turned around, and saw two men on the ground,” the witness said. “One of them was shot in the head – he was lying on the ground face down, blood streaming from his head. He didn’t move. The other guy was screaming, ‘My arm! My arm!’ – he got two bullets in his shoulder.”

Security forces also opened fire without warning on another peaceful demonstration in the al-’Arish area of Aden, a human rights activist at the scene told Human Rights Watch. The activist said he saw at least five people fall to the ground after being hit by bullets, mostly in the legs.

Another witness told Human Rights Watch that at about 7 p.m., security forces shot randomly and fired teargas at several hundred people who began protesting in the Crater Area after police dispersed a crowd near the Aden Hotel. Protesters there set a police station on fire.

A doctor in one of the hospitals in Aden said that 11 people with bullet wounds were delivered to his hospital after the protests. Two others were taken to a second hospital, one of whom died from a head wound, while the other had a chest wound and was in critical condition. The protester who died at the hospital was Muhammad Ahmad Salih, media reports and local human rights activists said.

As of 10 p.m., shooting continued in several areas of Aden where uniformed security forces and men in civilian clothes carrying AK-47 assault rifles had deployed, a local activist at the scene said. He said that he saw police shooting at protesters in al-Mu’alla, the site of the fatal shooting earlier in the day.

Setback Is Reported at an Iranian Nuclear Plant(pulling fuel rods)

Hmmmmmmmmmmm.

NY Times

Iran told atomic inspectors this week that it had run into a serious problem at a newly completed nuclear reactor that was supposed to start feeding electricity into the national grid this month, raising questions about whether the trouble was sabotage, a startup problem, or possibly the beginning of the project’s end.

In a report on Friday, the International Atomic Energy Agency said Iran told inspectors on Wednesday that it was planning to unload nuclear fuel from its Bushehr reactor — the sign of a major upset. For years, Tehran has hailed the reactor as a showcase of its peaceful nuclear intentions and its imminent startup as a sign of quickening progress.

But nuclear experts said the giant reactor, Iran’s first nuclear power plant, now threatens to become a major embarrassment, as engineers remove 163 fuel rods from its core.

Iran gave no reason for the unexpected fuel unloading, but it has previously admitted that the Stuxnet computer worm infected the Bushehr reactor. On Friday, computer experts debated whether Stuxnet was responsible for the surprising development.

Russia, which provided the fuel to Iran, said earlier this month that the worm’s infection of the reactor should be investigated, arguing that it might trigger a nuclear disaster. Other experts said those fears were overblown, but noted that the full workings of the Stuxnet worm remained unclear.

In interviews Friday, nuclear experts said the trouble behind the fuel unloading could range from minor safety issues and operational ineptitude to serious problems that would bring the reactor’s brief operational life to a premature end.

“It could be simple and embarrassing all the way to ‘game over,’ ” said David A. Lochbaum, a nuclear engineer at the Union of Concerned Scientists and a former official at the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, which oversees nuclear reactors in the United States.

Mr. Lochbaum added that having to unload a newly fueled reactor was “not unprecedented, but not an everyday occurrence.” He said it happened perhaps once in every 25 or 30 fuelings. In Canada, he added, a reactor was recently fueled and scrapped after the belated discovery of serious technical problems.

We need to pay attention to this one.

GW Bush Cancels Appearance at Event, Citing Speaking Invite Sent to Assange

Former President George W. Bush has canceled a planned appearance in Denver tomorrow because WikiLeaks Editor-in-Chief Julian Assange was also extended an invitation to speak[...]

"This week, upon learning that Julian Assange had recently been invited to address the same summit, President Bush decided to cancel his appearance," Bush spokesman David Sherzer said in a statement. "The former president has no desire to share a forum with a man who has willfully and repeatedly done great harm to the interests of the United States."

Excellent analysis on Yemen

Highly recommended: read it at Foreign Affairs.

Today M&C reported tens of thousands (pro and anti govt) protesters rallied in Sanna. Al Masdar has good photos and a write up of the protest in Sana'a (ar). In Taiz, about 20,000 anti-government protesters marched. Nine were wounded in Aden when police opened fire on a large gathering. However, according to my local sources, and preliminary reports, 30 protesters shot by police were received at the hospital including a 10 year old in critical condition. Others are reporting multiple fatalities; the LA Times is confirming two deaths.

"YouTube Terrorist" Cornhole Watch: Mohammed Gul Jailed 5 Yrs For Posting Terrorist Propaganda On YouTube

mohammed gul_youtube_jihadi.jpg
"Mashoom's Mustache Physically Excites me" ~Emerson "Goatly" Begolly

" Gul told the court he did not support terrorism but acted through curiosity and his political beliefs, PA added."

According to the Metropolitan Police Service's Counter Terrorism Command, Mohammed Gul, 23, from Hornchurch in east London, posted movies he had created -- as well existing extremist videos -- on video-sharing website YouTube over a period stretching from March 2008 to February 2009.

Using accounts named "marinetargetcorp," "marinetargetinc," "35marines," and "marinetargetboy," Gul uploaded video that included attacks on coalition forces in Afghanistan and Iraq, the making of and detonation of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), terrorist training camps and footage of the 9/11 attacks in New York.

He then moved on to creating a compilation video of extremist material relating to the situation in Gaza following the conflict with Israel in December 2008.

Gul was "pouring petrol on the fire" and his actions could have spurred others to commit acts of terror, the jury at the Old Bailey in London heard, according to Britain's Press Association.

He was dubbed "YouTube Terrorist" but also posted videos on the Anti-Imperialist forum

Dearborn Law Enforcement Covering Up "Honor Killings"?

Shocking but not surprising if true.

A civil rights lawsuit filed by Thomas More Law Center (TMLC) on behalf of four Christians wrongfully arrested for proselytizing at an Arab Festival alleges that Dearborn police and the local level government may be enforcing Sharia law - including covering up "honor killing" murders.

The four Christians, who are members of Acts 17 Apologetics Ministries, make this claim on their Answering Muslims website:

On a horrifying note, one of the police officers in the jail told us that there are honor killings in Dearborn but that they get covered up by the police department. He said that he had walked into houses where girls had been beheaded or had had their throats slit. (But check the local newspapers. You won't find any mention of these crimes.) The officer told us that some of the officers in the department support what we're doing.

I wouldn't be surprised if the Dearborn media was complicit in helping to cover up these crimes as well.

These allegations are included in the 96 page complaint filed by TMLC.

A full account of the events that led up to the arrest and, ultimately, filing the lawsuit can be read at Answering Muslims. But not only can you read the full account, most of it is documented with video, which is also available at the link.

Update: Just to clarify, by "covering up" I meant deliberately concealing the motive behind the crime, not concealing the crime itself. The police officer who confided in Acts 17 Apologetics was, as I read it, revealing that Law Enforcement and local officials are hiding the fact that some of these crimes may be "honor killings."

By concealing the motive, if that is happening, Dearborn officials are essentially condoning the very barbaric Islamic practice of killing an innocent person to "cleanse family honor." True, other religions and cultures have committed "honor killings," but only Islam continues the practice in modern, civilized societies.

If the motive behind "honor" crimes are being concealed, Dearborn officials are guilty of protecting the Muslim perpetrators from the full extent of the law, not to mention cruelly denying proper justice for the victim.

Read the complaint below the fold.

"Horndog High" Sex Scandal - Updated

(Brooklyn, New York) French teacher Cindy Mauro, 34, and Spanish instructor Alini Brito, 30, allegedly involved in a lesbian classroom sex romp, are suing the city of New York for $2 million claiming their good names were besmirched and they were wrongfully terminated from James Madison High School, locally known as "Horndog High."

A two-page summons with notice, filed Wednesday in Manhattan Supreme Court, says the two romance language teachers are victims of "wrongful termination, libel and slander."

"They've had to deal with these false allegations of engaging in lesbian sex," said Michael Valentine, a lawyer for the classroom cuties. "It's been painful.

"Aside from losing their jobs, their reputations have been ruined."

Responding to a state arbitrator's report, the Department of Education fired the two teachers last month. The status of the Alison Musacchio case hasn't been updated. (More….)

Providence Preempts Teacher Union Strike; Union Compares Move To Pearl Harbor

Smart move.

In an e-mail sent to all teachers and School Department staff, Brady said, “We are forced to take this precautionary action by the March 1 deadline given the dire budget outline for the 2011-2012 school year in which we are projecting a near $40 million deficit for the district,” Brady wrote. “Since the full extent of the potential cuts to the school budget have yet to be determined, issuing a dismissal letter to all teachers was necessary to give the mayor, the School Board and the district maximum flexibility to consider every cost savings option, including reductions in staff.” State law requires that teachers be notified about potential changes to their employment status by March 1.

“To be clear about what this means,” Brady wrote, “this action gives the School Board the right to dismiss teachers as necessary, but not all teachers will actually be dismissed at the end of the school year.”

Naturally, the Teachers Union is not happy...

“This is beyond insane,” Providence Teachers Union President Steve Smith said Tuesday night. “Let’s create the most chaos and the highest level of anxiety in a district where teachers are already under unbelievable stress. Now I know how the United States State Department felt on Dec. 7 , 1941.” That was the day the Japanese government bombed Pearl Harbor.

WTF? Handing out pink slips compares with the attack on Pearl Harbor?

Need any more proof these Union leftists are deranged? Next thing you know, they'll be comparing the teachers' plight of having to pay a very small share of their healthcare premiums with the plight of Jews during WWII in Nazi Germany.

Oh, wait, they already have.

What If They Gave A Commie Protest And No one Showed Up?

Apparently, that's what noted Communist loser Van Jones is attempting to do.

“On Saturday, the powers-that-be (in both parties) should see a rainbow force coming together: organized workers, business leaders, veterans, students and youth, faith leaders, civil rights fighters, women’s rights champions, immigrant rights defenders, LGBTQ stalwarts, environmentalists, academics, artists, celebrities, community activists, elected officials and more — all standing up for what’s right.”

There's a little bit of a problem though. Not too many people seem interested.

In order to get the word out, the group has started a Facebook page. But so far, the page seems sparsely viewed, with just over 1,000 “liking” it (as of publication time). But the lack of interest thus far hasn’t stopped some people from sharing their thoughts.

As they say, read the whole thing. You'll find that the sponsors of this miserable failure are all the same usual Marxist suspects.

"The Middle East was a growing market until a few weeks ago," said one arms trader who, like most, asked not to be named.

"It's a question now of who do we want to sell to. Do we want to sell hi-tech equipment to [Egypt's] Muslim Brotherhood? I don't think so."

...The Indiana attorney general's office says in a statement that while it respects employees' free speech rights, public servants are held to a "higher standard" and should "strive for civility."

An impromptu tweet calling for live ammo against threatening protesters = a firing offense

A Congressman urging his Brown Purple shirts to "bloody" people in the streets = just a poor "choice of words"

I guess the "higher standard" and "civility" doesn't apply to DemocRats.

Animal Abuse At Madison, Wisconsin 'The Daily Show' Taping

This abuse brought to you by Comedy Central, where your amusement is more important than this animal's safety.

From The Weekly Standard:

Who knew that an animal indigenous to the Middle East couldn't walk on snow and ice in the Midwest? Local firefighters eventually rescued the camel. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports that the Daily Show didn't use any footage of the camel in its Tuesday night broadcast.

Fortunately, the camel appears to be okay.

SEIU Thugs Harass Black Tea Party Member

And these liberals have the nerve to say the Tea Party is racist?

Pot, kettle, black.

The Gateway Pundit has more.

RedWhiteBlue News has even more, with extended videos. There were apparently plenty of police around who chose to let the verbal assaults go on. But then again, they're union too.

It is shameful how these union thugs treated this man, and even more shameful that the leftist media and blog-o-sphere is completely ignoring this story. Had this been a democratic black man getting harassed by Tea Party members, it would be all over the news - and the thugs would probably be facing arrest.

Where is Al Sharpton to condemn this? Where is Jesse Jackson? Where is President Obama, who likes to stick his nose into every issue? Oh wait, it wouldn't be PC to condemn this, because the victim belongs to the Tea Party...

Compare: USS Arleigh Burke Class Destroyer vs Iranian Navy Flagship Alvand

Image credit: Flippin

So why am I showing this? Galrahn thinks the US missed an opportunity by not taking a picture of our ships next to the Iranians when they passed:

It is more than a little disturbing to me that a ~1,500 ton Iranian corvette built in 1971 with 4 ASMs and no air defenses escorted by an old oil tanker can send the price of US oil up 1.8% for simply sailing on the ocean. Iran just significantly shifted an economic market in the US with a piece of shit corvette even though the USS Enterprise (CVN 65) was literally right there. Think about that a second...[...]

So, clearly the Navy has a communication problem... How can the US Navy address this? Well, if I was given 5-star rank for a day I would sail my Arleigh Burke class destroyer along side the Iranian Navy flagship for a "wave and hello" and take a photograph of the two ships side by side while underway. I realize that strategic communication is a forgotten, and perhaps lost art in the US Navy, but if you put a photograph on Navy.mil with the two warships in near proximity that illustrates the sheer size difference between the flagship of the Iranian Navy and a US Navy Arleigh Burke class destroyer, I will predict that the unofficial PASSEX is worth several thousand words to a great many reporters and Americans while also being a photograph worth about $14 million in savings to the US energy economy a day.

With a single photograph the concerns of an Iranian corvette threat to the Mediterranean Sea can be turned into an opportunity to communicate a visual public reminder of what US naval power looks like, and likely turns the Iranian naval threat to the Mediterranean Sea into the punchline of a joke - exactly what it should be.

Read it all as I can't do the article justice.

Congressman West Schools CAIR On Islam

OMG! I love this guy more and more!! Please, let West become President!

Below the fold, transcript and a FoxNews interview with West about the confrontation.

Transcript (thanks to Santa Baby at Lake St Clair forum):

Hamze: You recently told a Marine that the terrorists that attacked the United States and the people that are attacking America are following Islam and they are following the instruction of the Koran. So, very simple question. I'm not going to take a lot of your time. I'm not going to comment on Mr. Kaufman's {unintelligible then someone in the background says 'Shut up."} Can you show me one verse in this Koran where it says to attack America, attack Americans, or attack innocent people?

Mr. West: Well, of course it doesn't say attack American or Americans {unintelligible} the book was written back you know sometime around the 8th or 9th century so America wasn't even around {applause} but you do have a {unintelligible} story in there and there is talk about killing infidels. Look, you know.

Hamze: {unintelligible}

Mr. West: We don't have time to sit here and go through this. This is a losing proposition. From 622 A.D.

Hamze: {unintelligible} I tried to. I tried to.

Mr. West: It's the truth! It's out there! 622 A.D. on. The Nahkla Raid. It didn't happen? 628 the Battle of Qādisiyyah 3,000 Jewish families slaughtered. 732 A.D. Battle of Tours {unintelligible} {applause} 1671 {LOUD APPLAUSE} {unintelligible} 1693 {more applause} Islam {unintelligible} Mohammed's first wife. Something happened when Mohammed enacted the Hijrah. And he left Mecca and he went out to Medina. It became violent. Now you explain it to me. Major Hassan was shouting 'Allāhu Akbar.' The people who flew those planes into those buildings shouting 'Allāhu Akbar.' I've been on the battlefield my friend. Ok? Don't try to blow sunshine up my butt and tell me its warm and fuzzy. {APPLAUSE}

Hamze: Mr. West, may I respond to you?" I'm ashamed. I am ashamed to be here with all of these people. And you've attacked Islam. You attacked..

Mr. West: You attacked us! You attacked us!" {unintelligible} I went to Muslim countries to defend the freedom of Muslim people! Don't come up here and try to criticize me! Put the microphone down and go home!

If someone can fill in the unintelligible parts, please do so in comments. I'll try to keep the transcript updated.

Google: Don't Be Evil To K-12

googleevil.jpg

Google can't(which is unlikely) or won't control terrorist propaganda on YouTube. Google's K-12 art contest, "Doodle-4-Google", did control requirement of date of birth, city of birth and last 4 digits of social security number of those who entered. Why?

"Doodle-4-Google" is so much more than an art contest. Sure, the game, which received 33,000 entries last year, celebrates "the creativity of young people" by having them send in a drawing under the theme "What I’d like to do someday …" But, there's another component, as well. It also helps Google collect some very personal data on students K through 12. Along with the submission, the contest's initial Parent Consent Form asked for the child's city of birth (not current city, mind you), date of birth, the last four digits of the child's social security number, as well as complete contact info for the parents. Bob Bowdon, who directed The Cartel, a documentary about corruption in the public-school system explained the significance:
You see what Google knows and many parents don't know is that a person's city of birth and year of birth can be used to make a statistical guess about the first five digits of his/her social security number. Then, if you can somehow obtain those last four SSN digits explicitly — voila, you've unlocked countless troves of personal information from someone who didn't even understand that such a disclosure was happening.
Google responded: "We removed requirement for last 4 digits of of Social Security #'s" "We just wanted to make sure those who entered where legal citizens or permanent citizens of the U.S."

ACLU?

BTW, former CEO of Google, Eric Schmidt, is Obama's Tech Czar. How convenient is that!

By Stable Hand at 11:29 AM | Comments |

And They're Surprised?

When common sense becomes a crime...

(CNN) -- The California chapters of the Council on American-Islamic Relations and the ACLU say they will announce a federal class action lawsuit Wednesday against the FBI for "illegal surveillance of the Muslim community."

...It said that Muslims of varying ethnic and geographic background have reported visits by FBI agents.

"We have seen a special emphasis on individuals who have ties to, or have visited Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen," it said.

DUH! It seems Muslims who have ties to Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen disproportionately commit or incite more terrorism than the rest of the population. I guess simple common sense has no place in National Security, at least according to the ACLU and CAIR.

Would You Send Your Kids To A Summer Camp Built By Controversial Muslim Group (ICNA)

Muslim Brotherhood founder's grandson Tariq Ramadan spoke at a fundraiser for ICNA. Previously, GW denied visa to Ramadan. Obi One administration lifted ban and allowed Ramadan into U.S.

Via Mental Recession

One of the largest Muslim organizations in North America is considering plans to build a summer camp on 114 acres of land in the Adirondacks. Via the Albany Times Union:
“The Islamic Circle of North America, a Muslim advocacy group based in New York City, hopes to raise money to develop a camp for children and families of all religions on land donated to it last year.
All religions? No, stealth jihad
”The Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA), based in Queens, New York, is not devoid of controversy in a history that spans over 40 years, yet there is scant mention of these controversies by the media. The Times Union article states that, “U.S. law enforcement agencies have investigated, but never prosecuted, ICNA for terrorist connections.” And there is coverage of a fundraiser involving speakers having made anti-American statements in the past, which is quickly justified by saying, “the meeting raised money for homeless women.”

But the ICNA has so much more to offer in the way of newsworthiness, including an event involving radical cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, as well as a link to the presently relevant Muslim Brotherhood.

Google: Don't Be Evil

WISTV

JERUSALEM (AP) - Google has for years fought claims its mapping and photography services infringed on personal privacy. Now the Internet giant is facing concerns from Israel that the technology could be used for terrorism.

Israel announced Monday it is considering ways for Google Street View to photograph Israeli cities, despite concerns the popular service could be used by terrorists to plot attacks against sensitive locations or political figures.

A team of Israeli Cabinet ministers led by Intelligence Minister Dan Meridor instructed experts Monday to work with Google Inc. to find a safe way to implement the feature "as soon as possible," according to an official statement. The team is weighing benefits, such as increased visibility for tourist sites, with public safety and personal privacy[...]

Street View is not the first Google service to raise eyebrows in Israel's security establishment.

"We already have problems with Google Earth, which exposes all kinds of facilities," said retired Lt. Col. Mordechai Kedar, who served for 25 years in Israeli intelligence, who added that Street View functionality could ease and facilitate terrorist attacks.

Palestinian militants in the Gaza Strip have said they used Google Earth - a service that shows satellite images from around the world - to help identify targets in rocket attacks.

ROPMA Attack Teacher For Teaching Other Religions To Muslim Girls

Four men launched a horrific attack on a teacher in which they slashed his face and left him with a fractured skull because they did not approve of him teaching religion to Muslim girls.

Akmol Hussein, 26, Sheikh Rashid, 27, Azad Hussain, 25, and Simon Alam, 19, attacked Gary Smith with a Stanley knife, an iron rod and a block of cement.

Mr Smith, who is head of religious education at Central Foundation Girls' School in Bow, east London, also suffered a fractured skull[...]

Prosecutor Sarah Whitehouse told the court: 'The evidence from what was said on the probe points overwhelmingly to a religious motive for this attack.'[No sh*t Sherlock]

Somali Pirates Kill Four Americans on Hijacked Yacht

Sigh

DEVELOPING STORY: Four Americans aboard a yacht hijacked by Somali pirates have been killed, Fox News has confirmed.

U.S. forces responded to gunfire aboard the yacht Quest at approximately 1 a.m. Tuesday, but discovered all four hostages had been shot by their captors. Despite attempts to save their lives, all four hostages died of their wounds.

“We express our deepest condolences for the innocent lives callously lost aboard the Quest,” said Gen. James N. Mattis, U.S. Central Command Commander in a news release.

Two pirates died during the confrontation and 13 were captured and detained, along with two pirates already in custody. U.S. forces also found the remains of two other pirates already dead aboard the vessel and believe a total of 19 pirates were involved in the hijacking.

The yacht Quest was hijacked on Friday off the coast of Oman and U.S. forces had been closely monitoring the vessel.

Family and friends of Scott and Jean Adam, Phyllis Mackay and Bob Riggle are in our thoughts and prayers.

RIP

Update from Zionist Internet Spy [NUMBER REDACTED]:

American Forces Press Service adds details from a press briefing by Navy Vice Admiral Mark I. Fox:

"At 8 a.m. this morning ... a rocket-propelled grenade was fired by the pirates from the Quest toward the Sterett," Fox said. "Immediately thereafter, gunfire erupted from inside the cabin of the Quest. Several pirates appeared on the deck of the Quest and moved up to the bow with their hands in the air in surrender."

U.S. special operations forces closed in on the Quest in small boats and boarded the yacht. "They discovered that all four hostages had been shot by their captors," Fox said. The service members took immediate steps to provide medical care, but the four Americans died of their wounds. The boarding party also found two dead pirates aboard the vessel.

The special operations forces did not fire weapons during the boarding, Fox said.

"While clearing the vessel, two additional pirates were killed," the admiral said. "The remaining 15 suspected pirates are in U.S. custody."

Fox said two additional pirates were killed as the special operators cleared the boat. One was killed with a pistol, the other in a knife fight, the admiral said. There were no casualties to service members or damage to Navy ships. The Navy and the FBI are investigating the incident.

Fox said the perpetrators will be brought to justice.

Update by DMartyr: I think its time we start dealing with Somali pirates the way the Russians do. Video below the fold.

Muslim Rape, Feminist Silence

Where are the Women's Studies Departments denouncing the sexual assault of Lara Logan?

Unveiled women who get raped deserve it.

That’s the pedagogy preached by the Mufti of Australia, Sheikh Taj al-Din al-Hilali, who recently sparked an international stir by pronouncing that women who do not veil themselves, and allow themselves to be “uncovered meat”, are at fault if they are raped.

This is nothing new, of course, and it is somewhat mysterious why the Sheikh’s comments have caused any shock at all, since his view is legitimized by various Islamic texts and numerous social and legal Islamic structures. And that is why back in September 2004 in Denmark, al-Hilali’s Australian counterpart, the Mufti Shahid Mehdi, declared exactly the same thing, stating that unveiled women are “asking for rape.”

Answer?

Chesler on Lara Logan

My good friend Phyllis has a must read up at her blog.

On February 11th CBS foreign correspondent, Lara Logan, was publicly gang-raped and beaten for 20-30 minutes by Egyptian men in Tahrir Square who, all the while, cursed her as a "Jew." CBS only revealed this four days later. Writing at the London Guardian, blogger Amanda Marcotte chose not to focus on this act of jihadic barbarism because she did not want anyone to draw negative conclusions about Islam, Muslims, Egyptians, or about the so-called Egyptian pro-democracy "revolution." Instead, like many other commentators, Marcotte bemoaned the fact that "rightwingers" might now draw some politically incorrect conclusions. Marcotte writes:

"In this case, rightwingers who have an interest in stoking fear and loathing of Muslims worldwide pounced at the opportunity to smear all Egyptians with this crime."

Personally I don't see how you can hope for Egyptians to change much if you don't lay this at their feet. They are the ones who really need to reject this act as unacceptable. If they choose not to. Well then that really says it all does it not?

Al Jazeera Loses it's Luster with Logan Assault Cover-up


Via BigJournalism

Having praised Al-Jazeera English for its coverage of the demonstrations in Egypt, some American liberals are now backpedaling. They are outraged that the channel they praised so much has covered up the sexual assault on CBS News reporter Lara Logan.

The network’s mantra is, “The heart of the story. Every Angle. Every Side.” But that’s “less believable now” because of the failure of the channel to cover the attack on Logan, says Jonathan Capehart of The Washington Post, a leading liberal commentator. The silence of the network on this matter is “deafening,” he said.

American media personalities such as Sam Donaldson of ABC News and Rachel Maddow of MSNBC have praised Al-Jazeera for its coverage of the demonstrations in the Arab country. Such comments have been cited in full-page ads the channel has taken out in The New York Times and Washington Post as part of its “Demand Al-Jazeera in the USA Campaign.”

The assault on Logan occurred on February 11. “She was surrounded and suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating before being saved by a group of women and an estimated 20 Egyptian soldiers,” CBS reported. “Logan left the hospital on Wed. Feb. 16, to recover in her Washington, D.C. home. She received a call from President Obama expressing his concern.”

Capehart didn’t believe Al-Jazeera’s explanation that it was simply respecting the CBS News reporter’s privacy and didn’t want the conduct of reporters covering the riots to be part of the overall story. “I’m at a loss for what would drive a news network to ignore news,” he said.[More...]

HuffPo also involved in a cover-up of Logan's assault, omitting attackers yelling Jew Jew during attack. It's no wonder, as the screencap shows above, they are promoting Al Jazeera.

Egypts New Democracy: Muslims Abduct 18 yr old Daughter of Coptic Christian Family

Pedophile following assmaggots

(AINA) -- Muslims broke into the home of a Coptic family this afternoon and abducted their 18-year-old daughter Nesma Sarwat. The home belongs to the building contractor who built the controversial St. Mary and St. Michael church in Talbiya, within the Omraniya neighborhood of Giza. The abductors wrote messages on the home's wall, the messages said "Islam is the solution" and "The Church has to be demolished." The abductors also wrote the names of the other family members on the wall.

Neighbors heard voices, but no one saw the abductors as the whole operation took less than ten minutes and blood was found on the stairs and in the flat, reported Coptic activist Mariam Ragy of Free Coptic Voice advocacy. "I believe writing the names of the rest of the family might mean that their turn is coming," said the neighbor.

The Family of the abducted woman called the security forces to the scene

I'm sure the security forces will get right on it..Not!

The NY Times sign Raymond Davis's death warrant.

"Responsible journalism":

The American arrested in Pakistan after shooting two men at a crowded traffic stop was part of a covert, C.I.A.-led team of operatives conducting surveillance on militant groups deep inside the country, according to American government officials.

Working from a safe house in the eastern city of Lahore, the detained American contractor, Raymond A. Davis, a retired Special Forces soldier, carried out scouting and other reconnaissance missions as a security officer for a Central Intelligence Agency task force of case officers and technical surveillance experts, the officials said.

This guy is an actual CIA field agent. The kind who does the rough work getting the intel that leads to killing bad guys. The kind who puts his life on the line. The kind of work that we all know needs to be done.

The kind that travels armed.

Thanks for outing him New York Times. There are reports that he's come close to being lynched in prison already. And outside there are mobs calling for his death.

I'm sure you felt the same way about the "outing" of the already outed pencil pusher Valerie Plame.

You are full of patriots dedicated to our nations safety and the safety the men who put their lives on the line for it.

Oh, wait:

The New York Times had agreed to temporarily withhold information about Mr. Davis’s ties to the agency at the request of the Obama administration, which argued that disclosure of his specific job would put his life at risk.
How brave of you to wait five days before outing an undercover CIA agent.

You couldn't f*cking wait until he was at least out of prison and of harms way?

You are patriots who truly love this country.

You love America the way an abusive husband loves his wife. You love the idealized version of her, but are ready at any moment to beat the shit out of her should she do something you disapprove of. You know, like spying on the enemies of the United States.

Libya Travel Warning

'bout time to beef it up

Libya

February 21, 2011

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens of the potential for ongoing unrest in Libya. Violent clashes between protesters and security forces continue throughout Libya, including in Tripoli. Spontaneous demonstrations, violence, and looting are possible throughout the next several days. The Department of State has ordered all Embassy family members and non-emergency personnel to depart Libya. U.S. citizens outside of Libya are urged to defer all travel to Libya. U.S. citizens in Libya should minimize overall travel in-country, exercise extreme caution when traveling, and limit all travel after dark. U.S. citizens not departing Libya should make preparations to shelter in place. This Travel Warning supersedes the Travel Warning dated February 20, 2011.

Continued below fold with important contact info:

U.S. citizens should exercise extreme caution, avoid areas where demonstrations are likely to occur such as government offices and public squares, and leave an area immediately if a demonstration begins. Demonstrations have degenerated on several occasions into violent clashes between security forces and protesters, resulting in injuries and deaths. The U.S. Department of State strongly urges U.S. citizens to avoid all demonstrations, as even peaceful ones can quickly become unruly and a foreigner could become a target of harassment, or worse. While demonstrations have not been directed toward Westerners, U.S. citizens are urged to remain alert to local security developments and to be vigilant regarding their personal security. U.S. citizens should take the appropriate steps to bolster their personal security. Again, there is no indication that Westerners are being threatened or targeted at this time.

Unannounced security checkpoints and road and airport closures may occur throughout Libya, changing traffic patterns and flight availability without notice. Due to ongoing internet and telephone service interruptions in Libya, U.S. citizens who require assistance in departing Libya should contact the U.S. State Department at the phone numbers below or via email at LibyaEmergencyUSC@state.gov.

The U.S. Embassy in Tripoli can be reached at +218 (0)21-337-3250 during business hours; the after hours emergency number for emergencies involving U.S. citizens is 091-220-5207. The Embassy’s website is at http://libya.usembassy.gov. Security updates can be found at http://libya.usembassy.gov/service/information-for-travelers/warden-messages.html.

Sign that Qaddafi has indeed left Libya

Two Libyan fighter jets land in Malta.

The Maltese foreign ministry said it was trying to determine why the jets had landed unexpectedly in Malta.

The likely answer: they ran out of fuel after escorting Qaddafi's aircraft out of Libya.

Update by DMartyr: British Foreign Secretary William Hague stated that information he has indicates Qaddafi is heading for Venezuela (scroll down).

Also, looks like the fighter jets in Malta were flown by Military Officers defecting.

Heil Hitler Hezbullah Helping Mad Mullahs Attack Protesters

hezbollah salute.jpg

Revolutionary Guard needs help? Hmmm:

VirtualJerusalem

More than 1,000 Hizbullah terrorist army fighters have joined a huge Iranian police deployment to crush wide-scale protests that have left at least two people dead and hundreds injured or arrested.

The Islamic Republic regime in Iran has apparently decided to deploy an overwhelming army of police, Revolutionary Guards and Hizbullah members to squash the rallies. The government seeks to prevent the kind of momentum that toppled rulers of Tunisia and Egypt, and threaten kings and dictators in Libya, Yemen, Bahrain and other Muslim countries.

Foreign journalists have been barred from reporting on the Iranian demonstrations, and authorities have revoked work permits for 11 foreign journalists, photographers and cameramen for covering protests last week.

Meanwhile, Hezbollah might attack Israel targets to help Iran
Tehran could activate Hezbollah forces to attack Israel along the northern border in an effort to stave off domestic pressures within Iran, according to assessments in the IDF’s Northern Command.

The concern within the army is that if the regime in Tehran feels under pressure due to anti-government demonstrations it will try to initiate an attack on an Israeli target – either overseas or near the border – to divert attention from its own troubles.

Shabaab: Killing Police Trainees is a "Pleasure"

Um, so the spokesman for the al Qaeda linked Somali group calls a press conference. Is our intel in Somalia that bad that we can't, you know, drop a few bombs the next time he calls a presser?

"Today we carried out a blessed car bomb attack at the so-called police camp," al Shabaab spokesman Ali Mohamud Rage told reporters. "This is a warning to our enemies and a pleasure for us." ....

"We cannot get the exact number of dead now. We are busy collecting flesh, and people are shocked here," Hassan Ali, a police officer, told Reuters.

And if we can't spare a few bombs, how about some tacks?

How's That Democracy Working Out For You, Egypt?

I'm sorry, did I say "democracy?"

Bishop Cyril, the Coptic Orthodox bishop of Nag Hammadi, said "The court imposed one death sentence because one Muslim was killed, and the Egyptian judiciary wasted the blood of the six murdered Copts, who are of no value to the society. This verdict saddened all Christians worldwide because it means that the State is applying Islamic Sharia on all Christians in Egypt." He explained that according to Sharia the blood of one Muslim, victim Ayman Hisham, is paid for by the blood of one Muslim, Al-Kamouny; since one Muslim died, one Muslim got the death penalty.

Color me surprised that Sharia is being implemented in Egypt.

Never forget that President Obama sanctioned this by his words and deeds.

Free Pizza to Protesters in Madison - From Afar, Very Afar

Oh brother

MADISON, Wis. — Someone in Egypt has been paying attention to what’s happening in Madison and wanted to send a message of solidarity from across the globe — so they ordered a pizza.

It might seem like a small gesture, but it’s overwhelming to the staff at Ian’s on State Street — a campus staple mere blocks from the Capitol — where in the last few days, they’ve fielded calls from concerned citizens of 12 countries, and 38 out of 50 states looking to donate money to provide free pizza to the Wisconsinites who have congregated here[...]

The blackboard behind the counter lists the “countries donating” as “Korea, Finland, Egypt, Denmark, Australia, US, Canada, Germany, China, London, Netherlands, Turkey” and has the abbreviations for all 50 states listed below, with donating states circled. As of Sunday afternoon, 38 states had been marked as contributors.

The small pizza chain with locations in Madison and Chicago has been using Facebook and Twitter to take what started as one phone call and make it into an international movement.

Only good thing about this is the money the pizza chain is making. As for the protesters, just another free meal...

Update: Speaking of free meals, Egypt's Center for Trade Unions & Workers Services sent a 'stand in solidarity with the workers in Wisconsin" video via never missed a meal Michael Moore

Reports: Benghazi now in the hands of Libyan protesters

Col. Crazy(shameless stolen from Ace) has lost control....if these reports are true.

CNN

(CNN) -- Multiple eyewitnesses have reported that Benghazi, Libya's second-largest city, was in the hands of protesters and their military allies after several days of unrest in the nation.

Some of the military dropped allegiances to longtime Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, according to the report.

Obtaining independent confirmation on events in Libya is very difficult. The Libyan government maintains tight control on communications and has not responded to repeated requests from CNN for access to the country. CNN has interviewed numerous witnesses by phone.

Updates when we get them....if you see anything new post in the comments.

Update by SH: Gaddafi's son, Saif al-Islam Gadhafi is speaking live on AJEnglish: "We will not give up Libya, thousands are coming to support us". We will not leave Libya for Italians or thugs" "This is not Egypt or Tunisia" Plot against Libya, we will not be mocked by BBC Al Jazeera, etc. Appears desperate.. Breakdown with video via BBC

Update II by SH: According to this report indeed, Benghazi has fallen and now in control of the opposition

CAIRO, Egypt -- Libya's second largest city, Benghazi, fell Sunday after a crack army unit defected to the opposition and clashes spread to the capital, Tripoli, as an uprising against Moammar Gadhafi appeared to threaten the Middle East's longest ruling dictator's 42-year grip on power, residents and news reports said.

Gadhafi's youngest son, Saif Gadhafi, seemed to acknowledge in a rambling speech on state-run television that Benghazi and the nearby eastern city of Baida were no longer under government control.

"At this moment in time, tanks are driven about by civilians. In Baida, you have machine guns right in the middle of the city. Many arms have been stolen," said Saif Gadhafi, who called the insurrection "a plot against Libya."

He appealed for calm, promising to institute democratic reforms. But in a warning suggesting that the regime was digging in for a bloody fight for survival, he said that unless its proposals are accepted, "be prepared for civil war."

"Hero's Welcome": Wounded Iraq Vet Jeered at Columbia

col_college_assmaggots.jpg

SonofabitchinbastardlyassholeliberalfacistAmericanhatingCheGuevaralovinfeckinassmaggotdouchebags.

Columbia University students heckled a war hero during a town-hall meeting on whether ROTC should be allowed back on campus.

"Racist!" some students yelled at Anthony Maschek, a Columbia freshman and former Army staff sergeant awarded the Purple Heart after being shot 11 times in a firefight in northern Iraq in February 2008. Others hissed and booed the veteran.

Maschek, 28, had bravely stepped up to the mike Tuesday at the meeting to issue an impassioned challenge to fellow students on their perceptions of the military.

"It doesn't matter how you feel about the war. It doesn't matter how you feel about fighting," said Maschek. "There are bad men out there plotting to kill you."

Several students laughed and jeered the Idaho native, a 10th Mountain Division infantryman who spent two years at Walter Reed Army Medical Center in Washington recovering from grievous wounds.

Maschek, who is studying economics, miraculously survived the insurgent attack in Kirkuk. In the hail of gunfire, he broke both legs and suffered wounds to his abdomen, arm and chest.

He enrolled last August at the Ivy League school, where an increasingly ugly battle is unfolding over the 42-year military ban there.

Wisconsin Talk Show Host Vicki McKenna: From a Nurse - Teachers swamp clinics Friday for sick notes

doc excuse.jpg

It's for the children!!:

"Hello Vicki,

I am a triage RN at a clinic in downtown Madison. Reports of teachers calling and scheduling appointment at clinic for doctors excuses is absolutely true. On Thursday and Friday last week both my clinic and our UC apts were completely booked. MANY of these people had very vague symptoms and happened to need a work excuse. There were patients that I had to send to the ER because I could not get them an appointment in a timely manner. This cost both the patient and the insurance co. a lot of money!

Honestly, I would rather teachers find themselves a fraudulent excuse on the street instead of using up all our clinic appointments and taking up my time to triage them on the phone. They have put doctors and nurses in a very frustrating position.

This is yet another example of the utter selfishness displayed by our public employees last week. cannot imagine how anyone could justify taking a doctor’s appointment away from someone who is truly sick to cover their own butt!

BTW, I removed her identifying information--frankly to protect her from a possible (likely!) backlash

Brad Thor's Speech At Saturday's Madison Counter Protest

A little shaky, but, it's not a professional, so there ya go.

By Vinnie at 01:07 PM | Comments |

Dear Mr. Obama

Please please please don't let these jokers set foot on our soil.

A hardline Muslim cleric who sparked anger across the U.S. with his anti-American comments in a television interview this month is to hold a protest outside the White House.

British extremist Anjem Choudary - who once said 'the flag of Islam will fly over the White House' - has announced he will lead a demonstration calling on Muslims to establish the Sharia law across America.

The rally, planned for March 3, is to take place just weeks after his on-screen row with Fox News presenter Sean Hannity.

Mr Choudary, 43, called Americans 'the biggest criminals in the world today.'
The former leader of outlawed group Islam4UK told the Daily Star 'we expect thousands to come out and support us.'

Mr Choudary said the March rally was organised by the Islamic Thinkers society, an extremist group based in New York.

Two other British extremists, Abu Izzadeen and Sayful Islam, have also been asked to speak at the demonstration.

Izzadeen is the hate preacher who caused fury last year when he called British soldiers 'murderers' the day he was released from jail after a three-and-a-half year sentence for inciting terrorism.

Mr Choudary told the newspaper: 'The event is a rally, a call for the Sharia, a call for the Muslims to rise up and ­establish the Islamic state in America.'

I beg of sir of common decency. It like allowing Tokyo Rose to set up on the White House lawn.

Hat Tip: Weasel Zippers.

OK after further consideration, they can speak here. But only if they have to swim from London to get here.

Update: Don't I recall Choudary's visa not going through? Or was that a dream?

Massacre in Libya

Following up Libya, the BBC is reporting that it has taken a very bad turn for the worse overnight.

Details have emerged of huge casualty figures in the Libyan city of Benghazi, where troops have launched a brutal crackdown on protesters.

More than 200 people are known to have died, doctors say, with 900 injured.

The most bloody attacks were reported over the weekend, as funeral marches were said to have come under machine-gun and heavy weapons fire.

One doctor, speaking amid the sound of fresh gunfire on Sunday, told the BBC that "a real massacre" had happened.

Human Rights Watch says at least 173 people have been killed in Libya since demonstrations began on Wednesday.

Benghazi, the country's second city, has been a leading focus of protests against four decades of rule by Col Muammar Gadaffi.

Witnesses said troops used machine-guns, mortars, large-calibre weapons, and even a missile, against the mourners.

Opposition supporters said the attack was unprovoked, although security sources suggested some protesters threw firebombs at the compound.

Some described scenes of chaos as army snipers shot from the roofs of buildings and demonstrators fought back against troops on the ground.

The doctor told the BBC that some Benghazi residents had been shot outside their homes by neighbourhood militias and bodies had been dumped on the street.

I don't guess anyone needs me to comment on Gadaffi murdering folks at funerals. Its barbarity speaks for itself.

Isn't he held up as a Good Muslim in the struggle to kill infidels?

Why now is he murdering Muslims instead?

Here is some video from Libya, graphic truth warning.

Teen Fired For Joining The Marines? Not So Fast...

Big Peace has this story about a boy fired from his grocery store job because he joined the military. At least that's what the headline says.

“Marine-hopeful Joshua Perthuis, 18, of Texas City, Texas, said he ran afoul with his local employer last month after his Corps responsibilities got in the way of work.

Perthuis was fired from his job as a bagger at Food King after twice missing work in January. The first time, he missed an evening shift when his physical exam at the recruiter’s office ran long. The recruiter phoned the grocery manager to say Perthuis wasn’t going to make it.

Days later, Perthuis attended his swearing-in ceremony in Houston, about an hour’s drive from the grocery — and that ran long, too. When he called the store to say he wasn’t coming in for his afternoon shift, general manager Tony Melchor told Josh he should look for another job.

I like Big Peace, but I have to disagree with them on this story. The teen wasn't fired for joining the military, but rather for not showing up for his shifts with little or no notice.

This is the store manager's side:

But Food King’s management claimed the teen’s firing had nothing to do with his plans to join the military. They said Perthuis was fired because he never informed the store manager he needed the time off and that he didn’t follow store policy for requesting time off.

Perthuis's bagging job may not have been as important as serving in the military, but it still carries a certain amount of responsibility. What happens if this kid is given a job in the military that he feels isn't as important as something else going on in his life? Will his commanders understand as the recruiter expected the store manager to understand? Will his fellow soldiers take up the slack, doing their job and Perthuis's job, as his fellow store employees were expected to do?

I know The Jawa Report has many military and former military readers, as well has military family readers. So, I'm curious as to where everyone stands.

Should Perthuis have made proper arrangements to have his schedule changed, or did he have a valid excuse for not showing up?

Zawahiri Rears His Ugly Head on Egypt

really stonedbegging.JPG

Bloomberg:

Al-Qaeda’s second-in-command Ayman al-Zawahiri urged Egyptians to revive Islamic rule and criticized Hosni Mubarak as a “modern-day pharaoh” in remarks that came before the former Egyptian president was toppled.

“The Egyptian regime is in fact a repressive regime that relies on brutality and rigged elections while the Islamic system is consultative and seeks to achieve justice,” the Egyptian militant leader said in an audio recording posted on a website used by Islamist groups including al-Qaeda.

Mubarak was ousted Feb. 11 after 18 days of anti-government protests that demanded political and economic reforms. Al- Qaeda’s Saudi-born leader Osama bin Laden and Zawahiri have often condemned the Mubarak regime for its ties to Israel and the U.S. and urged Muslims to remove U.S.-backed rulers.

Egypt, under the late president Anwar Sadat, was the first Arab nation to sign a peace treaty with Israel in 1979. Mubarak, who took over after Islamists killed Sadat, upheld the accord.

“The reality of Egypt is the reality of deviation from Islam,” Zawahiri, an Egyptian, said in the recording, part of a documentary by al-Qaeda’s media arm As-Sahab titled: “A message of Hope and Good Tidings to Our Folk in Egypt.”

Missing from the Bloomberg report is the fact that Zawahiri is also a founding member of those peaceful moderates known as the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood. His most famous act as a member was his involvement in the murder of Anwar Sadat.

Yeah it was the Muslim Brotherhood who murdered Sadat. Everyone seems to have forgotten that. Anyway Zawahiri turned on all his Muslim Akhi to get himself out of prison and Egypt for good. He then helped found al-Qaeda.

We have the entire message, if anyone needs it email Howie. We'll determine how much of it to run here shortly.

Update: So that was not hard to figure out. The message is audio only over old stills of Zawahiri with Arabic subtitles. So we're not gonna run it.

Update II: A commenter wants to point out additional details about Zawahiri's membership in the Muslim Brotherhood and and offshoot thereof called Egyptian Islamic Jihad.

Dislike
MB was founded in 1928.

Bumpyhead Z-Man was an early member of MB splinter group Egyptian Islamic Jihad, which appeared in 1979-1980. Bumpyhead Z-Man took over EIJ in 1991 and led the merger with al-Qaeda in June of 2001.
Well yeah so what, does that absolve the Muslim Brotherhood? I think not, these Islamist groups do that. Same sh*t different name.

Angry Arab MK: 'Obama Can Go To Hell'

JPost

US President Barack Obama betrayed the Palestinians and the Arab world by instructing the American delegation to the United Nations to veto a Security Council resolution condemning Jewish settlements in the West Bank as illegal, United Arab List MK Ibrahim Sarsour wrote in an open letter to Palestinian Authority chairman Mahmoud Abbas Saturday.

In the letter, Sarsour accused Obama of surrendering to Israel, blind bias toward the Jewish state and directing undue pressure and threats against the Palestinian leadership.

After the exposure of lies from the US, we must say frankly to Obama: You no longer scare us and you can go to hell,” Sarsour wrote.

“Obama cannot be trusted. We knew his promises were lies. The time has come to spit in the face of the Americans.

A little testy are we? Angy Arab, you can go to hell!

Protests: "Alive in Libya"

Audio's from Speak2Tweet are being translated at AliveIn. This is from Libya:

on February 20, 2011 - "Can you hear the gunfire in the background?"

I'm actually in Benghazi right now. Things are getting pretty bad here. You can hear gunfire, probably you can hear them in the background once in a while. People are colliding with the army soldiers. The army are shooting them with live bullets. I see some smoke downtown. I'm not downtown but I can see smoke from the roofs of buildings here. And once in a while we hear explosions as well. There also can be more army coming to the city. [Where is that army is coming from?] We don't know probably (unintelligible) maybe rest of Libya we don't know. Do you hear that explosion? I don't know if you can hear it in the background but I hear it here. [Have you seen whether the soldiers who are firing are they firing into the air or directly at people?] Both. In the air and sometimes at people. I think now actually they are firing on people, you hear explosions and then gunfire. Because also I hear news from people calling and saying some people are injured and killed they're being taken to the hospital. [And what time in the morning did that gunfire started?] I would say about noon time or probably 1:00 our time that's the first time it started. After the funerals when people (unintelligible). People gathered at the funerals and collided with the army soldiers and then things got bad.

AliveIn #Libya: "Protesters destroying public property but..."

Hadayek Centre, I told you about it a while ago, which was burned, the burning was by a hand-made bomb or “”Jalatina.”" It was completely burned and anti-Gaddafi slogans written on the walls. And the protesters took control of three tanks in front of the courthouse to the north, because, before their eyes, they were crushing privately owned cars. The protesters are protecting private and public property, civilian property not military, of course they are destroying anything belonging to the regime but civilian properties and places that offer social and economic services are not being touched, they are being protected. They are directing traffic and cleaning the streets, while the regime is attacking private property. The tanks crushed cars and they are destroyed, we have videos of the tanks destroying the cars, but the internet is down so we can’t upload them, this is why the protesters took control of the three tanks. And now the protesters are using Molotovs and are repelling the other side.

They also have some rather gruesome videos. Some show Libyans and others show 'mercenary' or pro government thugs. All are below the fold with WARNING: NSFW or weak stomachs:

Americans Believed Kidnapped by Somali Pirates

AFP:

MOGADISHU — Somali pirates who hijacked a yacht believed to have Americans onboard were expected to bring the boat back to their main base of Hobyo, a senior pirate commander told AFP Saturday.

According to Ecoterra International, a non-governmental organisation monitoring maritime activity in the region, pirates hijacked the S/V Quest with four Americans onboard Friday in the Indian Ocean.

Abdi Yare, a top pirate commander in Hobyo, 500 kilometres (300 miles) northeast of the capital Mogadishu, said the boarding squad that captured the yacht left a week earlier from Harardhere, another pirate base further south.
"The pirate team that hijacked the yacht is led by a senior commander from the Harardhere area," he said.

"I think they will bring them (the hostages) here, near Hobyo, to negotiate the ransom," Yare added.

Harardhere, located around 100 kilometres (60 miles) south of Hobyo is where modern Somali piracy originated in 2003-2004.

The town was conquered by the Shebab, an Al Qaeda-inspired insurgent group which is officially opposed to piracy but has recently appeared to tolerate pirate activity on its territory in exchange for a cut of the ransoms.

A dispute broke out in recent days between the Shebab and the main "investors" who finance pirate raids and hijackings in exchange for a stake in the ransoms.

Update

Here is a picture of the S.V. Quest.

squest.jpg

She is owned by a couple identified as Jean and Scott Adam.

Much more here including the couple's image here.

The Adams writes on their website “Another aspect of our travels is friendship evangelism – that is, finding homes for thousands of Bibles.” The Adams detail their travels from Mexico to the South Pacific, and list their yacht the S/V Quest registered to Marina Del Rey. “We were so unhappy being ‘dirt dwellers’ during our time in the States that another floating abode had to be acquired,” Jean Adam write on their website.

But the couple have not updated the website since December 21 last year.

Andrew Mwangura, the maritime editor of Somalia Report, tells the New York Times that the couple were intercepted roughly three hundred miles off of Oman. They had sent out an SOS which unfortunately was intercepted by the pirates.

This could turn very badly if this couple are indeed evangelists. The radical al-Shabaab is known to believe in the death penalty for proselytizing to Muslims. If she is carrying Bibles its very likely that would be interpreted badly by any Sharia court.

I've no word as yet on the identity of the other two people aboard.

More here at MSNBC and the couple's blog is here

Iran Releases German Journalists

CBC:

Iran has released two German journalists who were arrested in October for interviewing the son of a woman sentenced to death by stoning.

Marcus Hellwig and Jens Koch were originally sentenced to 20 months in prison for committing acts against national security, but their penalties were commuted to cash fines of $50,000 US each. On Saturday, they were freed.

The two Germans, a reporter and a photographer for the Bild am Sonntag newspaper, had entered the country on tourist visas that did not permit them to do any reporting.

They were detained while interviewing the son of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, a woman condemned to death by stoning after being convicted of adultery.

Why Does Google's Wael Ghonim Heart Radical, Terror Supporting Sheikh Qaradawi?


Poster boy of Egypt revolution, Google's ME exec, Wael Ghonim tweet yesterday

GhonimI loved Sheikh Qaradawi Khutbah today. Was truly inspired when he said: Today I'm going to address both Muslims and Christians. Respect! about 20 hours ago
Respect my arse, also in Arabic:
Ghonim سعدت بحضور خطبة الشيخ القرضاوي اليوم وأكثر ما أعجبني فيها قوله: لن أقول أيها المسلمون بل سأقول أيها المسلمون وأيها الأقباط لأن كلنا مصريون
Googlish translate:
The pleasure of the presence of a sermon of Sheikh Qaradawi Today, more than what I liked where he said: I will not say but I will say O Muslims, O Muslims and Copts, because you are all Egyptians
He left out this (via AmericanThinker]
MEMRI is so far the ONLY organization to report/translate the Qaradawi statements beyond merely opening the Rafah crossing -- ie. his call for the Jihad re-conquest of Jerusalem, was conveniently omitted by the MSM and Arab media accounts
Ghonim conveniently left it out, didn't he?

I tweeted him regarding Qaradawi's statement:

@Ghonim :loved Sheikh Qaradawi Khutbah today. Was truly inspired <-did this-->http://bit.ly/f3iF5D (American Thinker) inspire u 2? about 15 hours ago

Didn't tweet back....coward

Update: ADL has the best background on Qaradawi, although it hasn't been updated with his welcome back to Egypt

"I support the Palestinian cause. I support the resistance and the jihad. I support Hamas, the Islamic Jihad, and Hezbollah. I oppose the peace that Israel and America wish to dictate. This peace is an illusion. I support martyrdom operations."

July 12-14, 2007, speech at the conference "Imam al-Qaradawi: A Forum for Students and Friends" (MEMRI)

Although Qaradawi has condemned the murder of civilians, including the September 11 terrorist attacks, he supports terrorist activities against Israel. In his condemnation of the September 11 terrorist attacks, Qaradawi claimed that "such martyrdom operations should not be carried out outside of the Palestinian territories." Qaradawi justifies this stance by claiming that Israeli civilians do not exist because the Israeli government requires all citizens to serve in the army.

In 2009, Qaradawi reportedly allocated $21 million to Hamas to buy apartments and plots of land in Jerusalem to "build charitable institutions to broaden its base in the city," according to the Israel Security Agency Shin Bet. Qaradawi previously transferred tens of millions of dollars to Hamas directly through the Saudi-based Union of Good, an umbrella organization of over 50 charities worldwide headed by Qaradawi.

Cont'd below fold:

On October 12, 2010, through a recorded message played by the Hamas-affiliated Ministry of Religious Endowment in Gaza, Qaradawi told guests at the meeting that Palestinians must continue to raise arms against Israel. According to Gazan Radio station Al Aqsa Voice, Qaradawi stated: "Not one inch of the land of Islam must remain in the grasp of infidels and occupiers…We must irrigate the tree of freedom with our blood. We must not leave the Palestinians alone. Every Muslim fulfill [sic] his role supporting our brothers in Palestine until they obtain their rights." He reiterated even more clearly, "Arms must not be laid down—he who wants freedom must pay the price."

Several days later, on his weekly "Shariah and Life" television show on the Al Jazeera network, Qaradawi was asked by the interviewer if Muslims should attempt to acquire nuclear weapons "to terrorize their enemies." Qaradawi, noting his pleasure to learn Pakistan had such a weapon to defend itself, replied that this goal would be permissible for Muslims and provided religious justification for "terrorizing the enemy."

Qaradawi also has a long record of inciting violence against Jews.[ More...]

Eight people killed and 36 wounded when splodey dopes opened fire with AK-47's then detonated their splodey vests.

Taliban, again, kill innocent Afghanis because they were in the same bank as Police officers collecting their paychecks.

An AFP reporter at the scene said he had heard gunshots and five explosions as the attack unfolded.

Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahed said the militant Islamists, who have been fighting international and government forces in Afghanistan for nearly ten years, were responsible.

Libya Protests: Muammar Gaddafi Murders 70

Or so claims Human Rights Watch. There have been reports that overnight there were internet outages as well as a government crackdown.

p2pnet view P2P | Freedom:- Some 84 people have been killed in Libya as dictator Muammar Gaddafi (right) steps up his warnings to Libyans not to use Facebook, to include the entire internet.

The number of deaths were reported by Human Rights Watch, in turn quoted by Al Jazeera which has a doctor in Benghazi saying he’d seen 70 bodies at the city’s hospital on Friday in one of the harshest crackdowns against peaceful protesters thus far.

“I have seen it on my own eyes: At least 70 bodies at the hospital,”says Dr Wuwufaq al-Zuwail in the story.

He also says security forces had prevented ambulances reaching the site of the protests.

The media universally talk of ‘killings’ and ‘deaths’ but as p2pnet says in an earlier post on the uprisings in Bahrain, they’re nothing less than murders.

So we'll set aside this threat for events in Libya. If anyone has any information please ad it in comments.

More here from Reuters.

The BEEB:

The number of people killed in three days of protests in Libya has risen to 84, according to the New York-based group Human Rights Watch.

The main focus of the demonstrations against Col Muammar Gaddafi's 42-year rule has been the second city Benghazi, where security forces are said to have attacked protesters again on Saturday.

On Friday, one hospital in the city reported 35 deaths.

State media have warned of retaliation if the unrest continues.

Media restrictions make it difficult to verify reports independently but the BBC has confirmed that websites including Facebook and al-Jazeera Arabic were blocked.

Security forces opened fire in Benghazi on Friday when protesters approached a compound used by Col Gaddafi when he visits the city, which is about 1,000 km (600 miles) from the capital Tripoli, eyewitnesses say.

Vid: Bahrain's army shoots unarmed protesters (bumped)

Peaceful protesters were mowed down as they were walking, armed only with the national flag. We decided to move the video below the fold as it is a graphic depiction of cold blooded state murder. Click to watch at your discretion.

Update by Howie: I've bumped this post up because of the importance of these clips.

Adults only please, graphic truth warning and all that. Also I've downloaded the source vids for archival purposes in case it gets flagged off Youtube.

This morning reports are the protesters have retaken the square.

CNN: Thousands of joyous Bahrainis retook a landmark square in the nation's capital Saturday -- a dramatic turn of events two days after security forces ousted demonstrators from the spot in a deadly dead-of-night push.

The startling sight of citizens streaming into Pearl Roundabout came as the Bahrain royal family appealed for dialogue to end a turbulent week of unrest and the crown prince ordered the removal of the military from the landmark, a top demand by opposition forces.

Police were placed in charge but withdrew on the heels of the military.
The roundabout -- the focal point of protests in central Manama, much like Tahrir Square in the Egyptian capital of Cairo -- was filled by people waving Bahraini flags, praying and honking horns.

A bit later in the story this
As international condemnation rolled in over the military's use of force against peaceful demonstrators, the royal family urged a dialogue with all sectors of the society to resolve the situation.

In a nationally televised address Friday, Crown Prince Salman offered his condolences, cautioned citizens and security forces to restrain themselves, and said the country wants a nation where neither Sunni or Shiites are favored.

The crown prince ordered the military Satutrday to withdraw from Bahrain's streets and left the police in charge to "oversee law and order." He appealed for calm and said "the situation is going back to normal."

There's not much that gets Americans that riled up about stuff overseas. Maybe this will.

Ivory Coast's incumbent leader who is clinging to power seized four major international banks Friday that had closed their operations earlier this week, attempting to pay civil servants amid a deepening liquidity crisis.

The spokesman for the sitting president, Laurent Gbagbo, read a decree on state TV late Thursday saying that the banks closed without giving the three months notice required by Ivorian law.

The Ivory Coast handles about 45% of the worlds cocoa production.

Jihadist attorney takes aim at the Jawa Report, the Jawas go to federal court seeking protective order

***Sticky until Saturday. Please scroll down for more recent updates.***

Back in September we reported that blogger Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs and attorney John Stemberger had been sued by Ohio jihadist attorney Omar Tarazi over public comments they made during the Rifqa Bary saga (Stemberger was Rifqa's Florida attorney). We have been following this lawsuit very closely, but several months ago our attention to the case became more personal.

Discovery requests by Tarazi revealed that part of his agenda was to expose my (Barbarossa) real-world identity. One request demands the following from Geller and Stemberger:

“The identity and contact information for the individual who posts under the name Barbarossa on the Jawa Report Blog.”

He has also demanded that Stemberger reveal the identity of a confidential informant who provided him information about Tarazi and his connections to the terror-tied Bary family mosque, the Noor Islamic Cultural Center, during Rifqa's custody case.

Because of our many and very public tangles with jihadists and actual terrorists here at the Jawa Report, revealing anyone of our identities could pose a real danger to our health and safety. If my identity were revealed, Tarazi could use the court system to compel me to reveal the identities of other Jawa contributors (or how much crazy blog ad money Howie spends per month on ghey midget porn). Needless to say, we can't let that happen (especially for Howie).

So earlier this week an attorney filed a motion for a protective order in federal court on behalf of myself and Stemberger's confidential informant. We have posted the motion submitted to the court below the fold. Fortunately, we have a great, experienced attorney representing us. He's confident that the law is on our side to not only protect our identity, but also that this search-and-destroy lawsuit targeting Rifqa's supporters will be promptly thrown out of court. But it might take some time and some financial assistance to make that happen.

With that in mind, I need to ask for your help. So far the legal costs to file for this protective order have been underwritten by the Middle East Forum's Legal Project. I'm kindly asking readers of the Jawa Report to go to the Legal Project's paypal page and throw them some shekels to help us fight this jihadist lawfare attack. Please note "Barbarossa" or "Jawa Report" in the comment section.

I also ask that you consider helping support John Stemberger's legal defense fund. He is not only a defendant in this bogus federal lawsuit, but is currently fighting a separate bogus bar complaint against him filed by Tarazi with the Florida Bar (who was been more than a willing accomplice since many of Stemberger's political enemies are using this to cripple his efforts). You can donate to his legal fund here.

Donations to the Middle East Forum's Legal Project and the Stemberger Legal Defense Fund are tax-deductible. All of the money goes to the attorneys to help fight this jihadist lawfare attack on our First Amendment rights. We personally won't see a dime of this money.

Thanks in advance to all of our loyal readers here at the Jawa Report for your prayers and financial support as we continue to fight this battle.

Our motion for a protective order filed in federal court this week is below the fold. The case number is 2:10-cv-00161.

Tunisia: Catholic Priest Found With Throat Slit

Protesters demanding a brothel be shut down were interrupted & dispersed by police shooting into the air. It has not been confirmed if gov agreed to close it down.

Towards end of article was this:

Later on Friday, a Polish priest was found dead with his throat slit near the capital.

Officials said Marek Rybinski, 34, was discovered in the garage of a religious school in Manouba, where he worked.

Tunisia's interior ministry said it believed the killing was the work of a "group of fascist extremists", judging by the way it was carried out.

Gotcha: Terrorist "Media Emir" Captured in Afghanistan

Who says the online media jihad isn't directly connected to actual acts of terrorism? Idiots, that's who! Before putting the entire ISAF press release below the fold, let me just point out that the so-called "media emir" had his hand in two recent suicide attacks.

For more background on the the HIG organization and their links to al Qaeda and the Taliban, see Roggio's post here.

----

KABUL, Afghanistan (Feb. 17) – Afghan and coalition forces detained two Hezb-e Islami Gulbuddin, or HIG, leaders in separate operations in eastern Afghanistan yesterday.

In Charikar district, Parwan province, Afghan and coalition forces detained the media emir for the HIG insurgent group along with another insurgent leader during a security operation.

The HIG insurgent was a Kabul-based media emir. He had ties to Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan officials and insurgents who operate in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Taliban media insurgents and improvised explosive device networks in the country. He was involved in at least two suicide bombings on Nov. 12, 2010 and Jan. 28 in Kabul City. The most recent attack was at a market in Wazir Akbar Khana area killing eight people and wounding six others.

Security forces followed leads to a targeted location in the district, where Afghan forces called for all occupants to exit out of the buildings peacefully before conducting a search. The HIG insurgent identified himself as the targeted insurgent and was detained.

A villager informed the security force another HIG insurgent leader was also in close proximity to the location. The security force went to the second compound where the second insurgent leader was detained.

He was responsible for facilitating IED manufacturing and emplacement for attacks against Afghan and coalition forces in Kabul and Parwan provinces. He also led attacks against Afghan and coalition forces at Bagram Airfield.

In Sabari district, Khost province, a HIG leader along with two suspected insurgents was detained during a security operation.

The leader operated in the district where he was responsible for leading approximately 50 fighters and facilitators for attacks against Afghan and coalition forces. He was in direct contact with other HIG insurgents in the area. Recent reporting indicates he provided grenades, detonators and weapons to anti-coalition forces in the area.

Security forces followed leads to a targeted building where Afghan forces called for all occupants to exit peacefully before conducting a search. The HIG leader and two suspected insurgents were detained based on initial questioning at the scene. Multiple AK-47s, multiple rocket propelled grenades rounds, a pistol and ammunition was recovered by the security force.

JFK Airport Bombing Plotter Sentenced to Life Contemplating Cornhole's former Virginity

Russell Defreitas' rear end about to be turned into a two way street:

The convicted mastermind behind a plot to blow up aviation fuel tanks and a pipeline at John F. Kennedy International Airport was sentenced to life in prison on Thursday.

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn had alleged Russell Defreitas, a former air cargo worker, hoped to "cause major economic loss in the United States" and sought financing for the plot from a Trinidad militant group. He was arrested in June 2007.

Mr. Defreitas, a naturalized U.S. citizen originally from Guyana, and a former member of Guyana's Parliament were convicted of criminal charges last August. A third man pleaded guilty in the case last June.

One of his accomplices, Abdul Kadir, was a former member of Guyana's parliament. I guess being a former member of Guyana's parliament doesn't pay so good these days.

Chris Christie: Conservative Bloggers Favorite

I tried to participate in the poll, but I was at home and the iPhone didn't have the right plug in. However, I did pick Chris Christie as my favorite GOP candidate which is exactly in line with the rest of the rightosphere.

Despite Sarah Palin's conservative bona fides she is deficient in one area: articulation.

Let's just face it, she's like Bush in that she's just not very well spoken.

And if there's one thing we need right now it is an articulate spokesman for the most important (by far) issue of the day: the national debt crisis.

All other issues are secondary to that one, and in the context of the current crisis they are a distant second. As much as I like Sarah Palin, I just don't see her convincing people to give up their place at the government trough.

We now return to our regularly scheduled terrorism related blogging.

Egypt's Sexually Harassed Women Need An Uprising

Sadly, most Egyptian women are afraid to speak out. To do so could possibly lead to jail time or worse, stoning

Cairo, Egypt (CNN) -- Several months before the revolution, I wrote a piece for CNN.com on the sexual harassment of women in Cairo.

News of the chilling attack on CBS reporter Lara Logan, as well as other sexual assaults against women during Egypt's uprising, show that attacks against women have not gone away.

I speak from experience. While most of my days covering Tahrir Square during the last few weeks were free from harassment, there was one day when I was groped. Another colleague almost had her pants ripped off by a gang of thugs.

If you are a woman living in Cairo, chances are you have been sexually harassed. It happens on the streets, on crowded buses, in the workplace, in schools, and even in a doctor's office.

I like this female reporter's toughness:
This incident was minor compared to what happened in 1994, shortly after I moved here. It was winter, and I was walking home from the office, dressed in a big, baggy sweater, and jacket. A man walked up to me, reached out, and casually grabbed my breast.

In a flash, I understood what the expression to "see red" meant. I grabbed him by the collar and punched him hard in the face. I held on to him, and let out a stream of expletives. His face grew pale, and he started to shake. "I'm sorry. I'm sorry," he whispered.

Shows what wimps those who feel they are above women are. She scared the sh*t out of him, heh.

Protests: Yemen's State Run Media Accuses Other Media of "False, Misleading & Biased" Reporting

Prez Saleh's Salehbots no like truth getting out. Such as a grenade thrown into a crowd of anti-gov protesters.

Sanaa, Yemen (CNN) -- Hurling rocks and brandishing sticks, supporters of Ali Abdullah Saleh plunged into a crowd calling for the longtime president's ouster in the Yemeni capital Friday[...]

At least 30 anti-government demonstrators were injured, according to Abdul Naser Al-Dumaini, an anti-government demonstrator at the scene of a demonstration in Sanaa.

The day before, at least 20 people were injured in Sanaa. Opposition lawmaker Ahmed Hashid said police at the scene did not try to intervene.

In Taiz, more than 10,000 anti-government demonstrators, including 4,000 women, gathered Friday in Freedom Square in a seventh straight day of protests, witnesses said. An assailant drove by the square and hurled a grenade, injuring 22 people, the witnesses and journalists told CNN.

A Really Short Jawa Op Ed

Earlier in the week I linked Jim Hoft at Gateway Pundit.

There was some discussion over the wisdom of Laura Logan's trip to Egypt and the tragic results thereof.

While its fine for Jim to state his opinion on the judgement of CBS and Logan, Ultimately the responsibility for the attack lies with the 200 or so f*cking peaceful Jooo hating savages that attacked her.

That is all.

I'm not worried that Jim will come over here and chop my head off or anything for saying so.

In the mean time, he's following the Wisconsin Dems who have absconded on their duty to execute the office they were elected to and headed over to Rockford to get smashed instead.

al-Qaeda Holding Italian Woman Hostage

Reuters:

DUBAI (Reuters) - An Italian woman kidnapped in Algeria in early February said she was being held by al Qaeda's north African wing, according to an audio recording aired by Al Arabiya television.

"Maria Sandra Mariani, I am the Italian woman kidnapped on Wednesday, Feb 2, 2011 near Djanet in Algeria," a woman said in the message aired by the news channel, speaking in French.

Al Arabiya television said on Thursday it had obtained an audio message from the woman after being contacted by telephone by a spokesman for Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) who claimed the abduction and said she was alive.

"I am still being held by Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb ... I ask Arabiya to please publicise this message. Thank You," the woman said in the recording.

The 56-year-old woman tourist was kidnapped by armed men in Algeria's Sahara desert, where insurgents operating as AQIM have been active.

The Al Arabiya story with the audio is here.

Dallas Mullahs Protest Being Compared to John Wiley Price

To review...

jwpmullah.gif

The fit continues to hit the shan down in Dallas, where Dallas Tea Party activist Jeff Turner is under fire for referring to a local County Commissioner as 'Chief Mullah' during a recent public meeting. Local representatives of the Religion of Peace are holding a press conference to denounce Turner:

Jeff Turner, who is active in the Dallas Tea Party, called Price "Chief Mullah" several times while criticizing the commissioner for how he handled the exit of county Elections Administrator Bruce Sherbet last month.

Price also took offense and let Turner and others in attendance know that they could "go to hell."

Today, local Islamic community leaders announced they will hold a news conference this Friday at Dallas City Hall near the Reflecting Pool at 11 a.m. to denounce Turner's use of the word.

The following is a statement from Thomas Muhammad a local Muslim activist.

"When will this stop! Why does it appear these days people are constantly either attacking my faith or using my faith to attack people of other faiths? Ask yourself what do you think would happen to Turner had he used "Chief Rabbi" in his attacks on John Wiley Price? And why didn't he?

Hmmm...why not, indeed? Is it perhaps because Rabbis aren't known for having their critics hanged and beheaded?

Something tells me this story is just getting warmed up. Pass the popcorn...

Lead Lawyer Challenging Obamacare Under Cyber Attack

Via Heritage

While politicians are still talking about restoring civility, liberal thugs are waging an all out attack on the website of David Rivkin, lead counsel in the multi-state lawsuit against Obamacare, rather than engage in a civilized debate that they can’t win. And what do the ACLU and other left-leaning civil rights groups have to say about these attempts to silence a leading voice for freedom and liberty? Not a thing.

Rivkin represents 26 States, the National Federation of Independent Business, and two individuals in the most prominent and successful challenge to Obamacare. He’s been a prominent critic of the law’s individual mandate from the beginning, and is used to engaging in intellectual battle—it comes with the territory. But this is something far different.

One week after federal district judge Roger Vinson held that the mandate was unconstitutional and struck down the entire law, Rivkin’s website came under attack by a highly organized group of cyber-terrorists seeking to silence him and knock his views off the Internet.[More]

In this case, a little girl is killed by her adoptive parents. Shortly before her death, the Florida Department of Children and Families received a complaint of possible abuse. The investigation was delayed because it was a weekend and the DCF 'doesn't do investigations on weekends.'

“How could you get a call to the hotline on February 10, and the child be dead by the 14th?” [Judge Cindy] Lederman grilled DCF investigator Andrea Fleary, who had been assigned to look into the reports that Victor and his twin sister Nubia were being abused. Fleary told the judge that Carmen Barahona kept telling her son to go into the other room and play on his computer.

“Wouldn’t’ that make you suspicious, like there was something going on?” Lederman asked with a tone of disbelief. Fleary said she ended her investigation abruptly at 9 p.m. Friday night because “we don’t do investigations on weekends,” a claim her bosses denied.

...By Monday morning, Nubia was dead, on the side of Interstate 95, in the back of her adopted father’s pickup truck, as a cloud of chemicals surrounded the vehicle. (Emphasis mine)

If Islamic apologists need a good excuse for continuing the practice of stonings, they should start with these "parents."

Prayers for the little boy. Hopefully he'll recover from this horror.

The Opposite of Ironic: Pali Named "Jihad" Killed in the Act

A guy names his kid "Jihad" and then is surprised when the IDF opens fire on him as he and his two buddies are planting a bomb.

And just to show you how utterly sure that Palestinian propaganda machine is that the Make Believe Media will reprint any baldfaced lie, the Hamas government is telling reporters that they were just fisherman, while the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine admits that this was "a mission carried out by our military wing."

There are no US troops Baghdad!

Because The Taliban Is Sooo Much Better...

In a speech to University of San Francisco law students, the father of American traitor and Taliban soldier John Walker Lindh had this to say:

[Frank] Lindh contends his son was serving with the Taliban only to protect civilians who were being victimized by the Northern Alliance, who were fighting a civil war to topple the Taliban government and who became U.S. allies following the invasion of Afghanistan after the Sept. 11 attacks.

I'm sure because the Taliban is sooo much better to civilians than anyone else in the region...

Nice try, Frank Lindh. Your son is a worthless piece of crap. He should not only be executed for treason, he should be executed in the same manner the Taliban loves to execute women - bury him to his waist and throw fist-size rocks at him until he dies.

Bahrain Protests: ABC News Correspondent Beaten

ABCNews

With unrest spreading across the Arab world from Tunisia to Egypt to Bahrain, ABC News Correspondent Miguel Marquez was beaten during a military crackdown in Bahrain's capital, Manama, Bahrain's capital.

He is the latest Western journalist to be attacked covering protests in the region. He said he was not badly injured, but he was hit with billy clubs while he yelled, "Journalist, journalist!" trying to show he was not a protester.

He was on the phone to ABC News in New York when it happened.

Click HERE or on video in upper left to listen to Marquez's report.

There was a canister that looked like -- No! No! No!

"Hey! I'm a journalist here! I'm going! I'm going! I'm going! I'm going! ... I'm hit," he said. "I just got beat rather badly by a gang of thugs. I'm now in a marketplace near our hotel where people are cowering in buildings." He paused. "I mean, these people are not screwing around. They're going to clear that square, tonight, ahead of any protest, on Friday. The government clearly does not want this to get any bigger."

No they don't screw around, this isn't Pallywood.

Free Speech Costly For Teacher

Teacher Natalie Munroe makes no excuses for writing blog posts about her students which include statements like, "A complete and utter jerk in all ways," "although academically okay your child has no other redeeming qualities," "I hear the trash company is hiring," and "There's no other way to say this, I hate your kid."

Munroe said she talked to students she had issues with, but "Nothing ever changes, things are swept under the rug...sometimes things are addressed but they don't change. It's not like I was in my room typing things out and not trying to make changes where they should be made."

"I was writing it not about anyone specific, they were caricatures of students that I've had over the years...it was meant tongue and cheek for myself and my friends, it was not for mass consumption...I'm sorry that it was taken out of context but I stand by what I said," Munroe said.

Yeah no problem with that.

My advice, blog about something else. Use that real world crap for creative crap.

UC Davis Defines Christians as Oppressors (Update)

rahim reed.jpg
2001: Race specialist Rahim Reed named Associate Executive Vice Chancellor at UCDavis

Oh, really?

....The definition is listed in a document called, “The Principles of Community.” It defines “Religious/Spiritual Discrimination” as “The loss of power and privilege to those who do not practice the dominant culture’s religion. In the United States, this is institutionalized oppressions toward those who are not Christian.”

“This is radical political correctness run amok,” said David French, senior counsel for the Alliance Defense Fund. The conservative advocacy group has written a letter on behalf of more than 25 students who object to the policy and want it revised. He said it’s absurd to single out Christians as oppressors and non-Christians as the only oppressed people on campus.

A spokesperson for UC-Davis directed comments about “The Principles of Community” to Raheem Reed, an associate executive vice chancellor. Reed did not return numerous phone calls.

Of course he hasn't returned phone calls, how is he gonna explain it?

Chip, chipping away...

Update: Sunlight is the best disinfectant

The University of California at Davis has backed away from a policy that defined religious discrimination as Christians oppressing non-Christians after more than two dozen Christian students filed a formal complaint[...]

Raheem Reed, an associate executive vice chancellor at UC-Davis, said he received the letter and removed the definition Wednesday afternoon.

“I certainly can see how a Christian student reading that definition might feel and that’s why it was immediately disabled and taken down,” Reed told Fox News Radio. “This is not how we define religious discrimination.”

However, one student said they complained to administrators last November about the policy and nothing was done. “Christians deserve the same protections against religious discrimination as any other students on a public university campus,” French told Fox News Radio. “The idea that a university would discriminate against Christians is a very old story, unfortunately, and one that we see played out every day.”

One student, who asked not to be identified, said university officials asked her to reaffirm “The Principles of Community” last semester. She refused to do so when she realized that Christians were not protected under the policy.

The students don't want to be identified for fear of backlash.

One was shot in the back.

The fatalities are identified as Mohammed al-Alwani and Yaseen Aske. Many others were injured in the al Mansoura section of Aden. After the deaths were confirmed, protesters attempted to storm the police station. Protests in southern Yemen began in 2007 and hundreds have been killed by live fire by police since then. AJE reports one of today's fatalities was shot in the back. For a video of the peaceful protest before police began shooting, click here.

NYU Professor who Trashed Sexual Assault Victim Resigns ... But Since Egyptian Mob Who Attacked Her Thought She was a Jew, He's not sure what the big deal is?

Okay, I might have made up that last part in the headline, but the mob did seem to be under the impression that Lara Logan was a Jew.

Because nothing screams Jew more than a blond hair blue eyed babe.

And even though it seems that some in the Egyptian Army helped rescue Logan, this report suggests that they too thought she was part of the grand Zionist conspiracy:

A network source told The Post that her attackers were screaming, "Jew! Jew!" during the assault. And the day before, Logan had told Esquire.com that Egyptian soldiers hassling her and her crew had accused them of "being Israeli spies." Logan is not Jewish.
And if every one in Egypt thought Logan was a Jew, then why did the NYU Professor Nir Rosen resign after his viscous attack on her yesterday? Given that Nir Rosen seems to think that acts of terrorism against Israeli civilians is legitimate resistance, I don't see why he would think it was a big deal or feign to act apologetic.

After all, if killing a "Zionist" Jew is a legitimate act of resistance, then why isn't raping a "Zionist" Jew? As heinous as rape is, in the moral hierarchy it is not quite as bad as murder.

UPDATE: In addition to being a first rate douchebag, he's also a traitor. And by traitor I mean traitor-traitor. Actual traitor. It's time guys like this face a firing squad, not tenure at one of the nation's premier schools.

UPDATE by Dmartyr: NYU's Center for Law and Security has issued a statement:

Official CLS Statement on Nir Rosen

From Karen J. Greenberg, Executive Director, Center on Law and Security:

Nir Rosen is always provocative, but he crossed the line with his comments about Lara Logan. I am deeply distressed by what he wrote about Ms. Logan and strongly denounce his comments. They were cruel and insensitive and completely unacceptable. Mr. Rosen tells me that he misunderstood the severity of the attack on her in Cairo. He has apologized, withdrawn his remarks, and submitted his resignation as a fellow, which I have accepted. However, this in no way compensates for the harm his comments have inflicted. We are all horrified by what happened to Ms. Logan, and our thoughts are with her during this difficult time.

Sudden Jihad Syndrome?

The cab driver who mowed down more than two dozen people outside a nightclub is a devout Muslim. Jihad Watch has much more on the story.

I wonder if this "devoutly Muslim" driver reads Inspire Magazine? This is an excerpt from issue 2:

vehicle mowing machine.jpg

Pick your location and timing carefully. Go for the most crowed locations. Narrower spots are also better because it gives less chance for the people to run away. Avoid locations where other vehicles may intercept you.

To achieve maximum carnage, you need to pick up as much speed as you can while still retaining good control of your vehicle in order to maximize your inertia and be able to strike as many people as possible in your first run. Keep in mind that as soon as people realize what you are up to, they would scatter and run in every direction looking for cover. They would look for areas where the vehicle cannot reach them. Therefore, it is important to study your path of operation beforehand.

The ideal location is a place where there are a maximum number of pedestrians and the least number of vehicles. In fact if you can get through to “pedestrian only” locations that exist in some downtown (city center) areas, that would be fabulous. There are some places that are closed down for vehicles at certain times due to the swarms of people.

Video: CPAC panel led by Suhail Khan recommends outreach to Nation of Islam and La Raza

If you want a look at exactly what transpired over the weekend at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), you have to look no further than this CPAC panel on Saturday organized by Suhail Khan, where panelists CJ Jordan of the National Black Republican Leadership Council and another panelist, recommend outreach to the racist Nation of Islam (Louis Farrakhan) and La Raza (literally, "The Race"). This is also the same session where Suhail Khan, a board member of the American Conservative Union (which organizes CPAC), made the laughable claim that "there is no Muslim Brotherhood in the United States".

Blog Sabbath Caption Contest: You Won't Have Hosni Mubarak To Kick Around Anymore Edition (Fatwas Issued!)

Well now that Mubarak is history, why not help him out with his exit? He sure sucked enough at it. We can't do much worse.

mubarak_1824382c.jpg

Update: Fatwas Issued!

The "i will cut ur neck" fatwa issued against Elmiraviking for:

Good, I can feel your anger. I am defenseless. Take your weapon! Strike me down with all your hatred and your journey towards the dark side will be complete.
The "devil will do meetballs from your bodies" fatwa issued against Okie for:
They may have found my Swiss bank accounts, but they'll never get my meatballs!
The "why u insult holly quoran" fatwa issued against Nanabozo for:
I now have time to produce and star in my own stage version of "Dracula". Blah Blah!
The rest of Howie's original babble below the fold.

And also there is some truth to that statement. Now the real work begins. It seems some overseas misunderstand democracy. I've heard the following statement from the Muslim Brotherhood, "If the majority want Sharia, What is wrong with that?" or words to that effect.

The problem is that Sharia by definition violates the rights of the minority. Part of democracy is protecting the unpopular minority from the overzealous majority. Remember free speech only protects unpopular speech.

Mubarak's "tyranny lite" could only stand so long as the popular majority did support/tolerate it.

In the same way one cannot trade one tyranny for another. (well you can but)

The end result must be that all parties get input and no one gets entirely what they want. Copts must have equal rights as Muslims, Muslims as the Generals... etc etc etc. The end is a big mess. Remember the words "more perfect union" not "perfect union".

Anyway enough of my babble.

Fatwas will be issued.

Update: Well maybe not enough of my babble. If I were an Egyptian, I'd see the perfect opportunity to dump that freaking Euroweanie democracy POS constitution for a real democratic republic.

The constitutions in Iraq, Afghanistan etc etc are all based in the inherited Euroweenie democracy imperialist crap from the French and Brits that only the Brits and Japs can make work cause they are just weird like that. The French require a new constitution every 15 minutes or so.

How America, a democratic republic, ever let that happen is beyond me.

Oooops, Sharia Supporting Islamist Appointed to Head Egypt's Constitutional Committee

Rusty said yesterday he's not very optimistic about Egypt.

Er uh, Yeah:

In other good news, the head of the committee to draft Egypt’s new constitution is a judge affiliated with an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood. Even more wonderful. I sure hope Obama wises up on entitlement reform and makes a deal with the GOP soon, because given the way things are going in Egypt, he might not have much time over the next two years for domestic priorities. Exit question: What does the upheaval in the region do to Israel’s timetable for Iran’s nuclear program? I was thinking today that they might feel compelled to strike soon, before Egypt has gotten its bearings and formally repudiated Camp David. If they’re going to hit Iran, best to do it shortly and then retrench for the new reality of having enemies on all its borders (again). But now I’m thinking maybe they’ll slow down on Iran lest an attack give the Brotherhood an excuse to agitate in Egypt for repealing the treaty. The Brothers will do that anyway, of course, but it’s at least possible that the treaty will survive if Israel is quiet for the foreseeable future. Or is it?
The treaty they are talking about dumping is the Camp David accord that has maintained the peace between Egypt and Israel since the Carter administration.

I'm not sure what makes Rusty so nervous. It could be the gleeful chatter of the hard line Islamists. Note the hard line groups love chaos, al-Qaeda in particular loves to inject itself into a chaotic situation. Using its organization to become often times the only organized group.

It can't do that, but for sure in Egypt the hard liners will seek to take advantage of their lead in organizational skills to hijack the coup. The question is will the moderates be able to oppose them effectively?

Well this appointment I think speaks to that quite effectively. If you were worried about it before, worry more now.

Update: We have a question in comments, "How do you donate to the Israeli Red Cross?" Well, you can't do it through the international red cross because they hates da joooos or something. So Israel has its own red cross.

Reporter Sexually Assaulted by Crowd of Egyptian Protesters (Updated)

UPDATE 2/16/2011: Nir Rosen has resigned and, unsurprisingly, he's the kind of self-hating Jew that hates Israel and who has literally helped the Taliban.

--------- Begin original post -------------

It's her own fault. Her hair was uncovered.

[Seriously: The report says that she "suffered a brutal and sustained sexual assault and beating" by a "mob of more than 200 people."

Was she gang raped? If so, I've never heard of such a large crowd participating in something so horrible. A few thugs, maybe. But 200? I think that's telling about a society that could produce something this bad.

And as AllahP points out, who ever heard of a mob being "whipped into frenzy" such that they feel compelled to sexually assault someone? It's absolutely unheard of.

I am not optimistic about Egypt's future.]

(Phoenix, Arizona) Sheriff Joe Arpaio is considering the possibility of a Senate run In light of poll results indicating that he leads all Republican candidates for the seat of retiring Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ).
Arpaio said the deciding factor is neither the money, which he said he could raise, nor his ability to do the job. Rather, he said, it's whether he would be willing to leave his job as sheriff.
Polling found likely GOP voters would select Arpaio over former Rep. J.D. Hayworth and Rep. Jeff Flake. Heh.

Out: Osama bin Laden
In: Anwar al-Awlaki

Osama bin Laden is so 10 years ago. For today's young upwardly mobile jihadi, getting American born Anwar al-Awlaki's seal of approval is a must! Here's how one German who is now in Pakistan recalls meeting al-Awlaki as he made the jihad rounds in Yemen:

"During an indescribable adventure in Yemen, we had the honor of meeting one of the true scholars of our time, the Sheikh and the missionary Imam Anwar al Awlaki," Abu Ibrahim said. "We could benefit much from him and spent precious hours with him."
Read the rest. Apparently it was al-Awlaki's idea for the German to get out of Yemen and head for Pakistan because it wasn't safe for foreigners any longer.

Which makes one wonder why (or if) Awlaki hasn't given that same advice to Samir Khan?

"Moderate" Jordan: Guy Who Murdered 7 Israeli Schoolgirls a "Hero"

Hey, let's make Jordan more democratic:

Jordan's justice minister on Monday described a Jordanian soldier serving a life sentence for killing Israeli schoolgirls in 1997 as a "hero," joining a sit-in to demand his release.

"I support the demonstrators' demand to free Ahmad Dakamseh. He's a hero. He does not deserve prison," Hussein Mujalli, who was named minister last week, told AFP, after taking part in the sit-in held by the trade unions...

In March 1997, Dakamseh fired an automatic weapon at a group of Israeli schoolgirls as they visited Baqura, a scenic peninsula on the Jordan River near the Israeli border, killing seven and wounding five as well as a teacher.

Remember he's a celebrity in Jordan for murdering the little girl and the guy calling him a hero is Jordan's justice minister. He's calling on King Abdullah to pardon the mass murdering child killer. The Justice Minister goes on to say:
"If a Jewish person killed Arabs, his country would have built a statue for him instead of imprisonment." ...
Um, no. If an Israeli opened fire on little Arab girls they call the man a murderer. That's the difference between Israel and many of its Arab neighbors.

Thanks to The Religion of Peace.

Mad Mullah's Exploiting Murder of Slain Kurdish Protester

Trying to cover up the brutality of Iran's Basij

GVF — In an attempt to distort another truth about Monday's opposition protests, the Iranian regime’s propaganda machine has targeted Sane Zhale (صانع ژاله) an Iranian protester shot dead during the demonstrations in Tehran.

The Iranian authorities are claiming that the latest victim of state brutality, Sane Zhale, was not a Green Movement protester, but rather, an active member of Iran's violent Basij vigilantes often employed for cracking down on the opposition Green Movement. Furthermore, the Iranian regime, the prime culprit behind the art student’s tragic murder is accusing Monday’s protesters of having carried out his murder.

Allahu Akbar! Terror Camp Trainer Pleads Guilty at GITMO

Oh, wait.., his guilty plea may mean he will be sent back to his country in 2015?

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVY BASE, Cuba -- A Sudanese man accused of training a generation of terrorists ahead of the 9/11 attacks pleaded guilty Tuesday to supporting terror and conspiring with al Qaeda — handing the Obama administration its third plea in a row at the reformed war court.

Noor Uthman Mohammed, in his 40s, stood silently in white traditional gown and skullcap as his Army lawyer, Maj. Amy Fitzgibbons, entered the plea on behalf of the 90s era weapons instructor and some-time operations manager of the Khaldan terror training camp along the tribal frontier border between Afghan-Pakistan.

He said only yes — na’am in Arabic — when asked whether he understood the proceedings.

The judge, Navy Capt. Moira Modzelewski, sealed the substance of the plea, signed by Noor with a thumbprint Jan. 26 — what the captive agreed he did at the camp and in the company of an alleged arch-terrorist known as Abu Zubaydah, as well as how much time he would have to serve on a punitive cellblock as a war criminal.

A military jury will be chosen Wednesday to hear about his crimes and deliberate a sentence, which would have meaning only if its shorter than in the plea bargain or if Noor breaks the plea agreement.

Military sources said the deal could send Noor home by January 2015, even though the jury can sentence him to a maximum of life in prison.

Who are the 'military sources'? Hmmmm

The two Americans, identified as Alwar Pouryan and Oded Orbach, were indicted in connection to a scheme to sell surface-to-air missiles, automatic rifles and other weapons to the Taliban to help the rebel group protect their narcotics operations, the US justice department said in a statement[PDF..ed].

Five other defendants, who allegedly operated drug trafficking rings in Africa, were charged in a plot "to receive, store, and move ton-quantities of Taliban-owned heroin through West Africa, portions of which they understood would then be sent to the United States", the statement said.

IKHWAN (Muslim Botherhood): Launched website reveals dictators' (Mubarak) scandalous supporters

"MB will apply to become party when time is right"

MB:

The Arabic Network for Human Rights Information today announced the launch of a new website dedicated to publish the names of Egyptian journalists, artists and public figures who defied the will of the Egyptian people, and supported the ousted dictator regime Egyptian Hosni Mubarak.

The site ,Lists of shame, http://www.el3ar.info, publishes lists of names of public figures who made statements against the revolution in all cities of Egypt, especially Tahrir, in addition to a page of merit for all public figures who participated and supported the demonstrations , and sided with the people’s demands for democracy.

A number of public figures, artists, journalists and athletes contributed to the smear campaigns against opponents of the deposed Mubarak regime, organized and participated in demonstrations against the revolution. Some of them even insulted the sit ins in Tahrir and incited against them, accusing them of trying to sabotage Egypt according to foreign agendas[...]

“Some of these figures, were not even honest in defending Mubarak regime as they quickly switched stances like rats fleeing a sinking ship , those are really without honor. Adoption of different views is acceptable within accepting the other ,but quick switching of position is so disgraceful ” , added the Arabic Network.

Ah, flip floppers

Iranian Regime Calls for Murder of Protest Leaders (bumped)

Today the Iranian regime called for the execution murder of the leaders of the freedom movement in Iran.

BBC: Members of Iran's parliament have called for opposition leaders Mir Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi to be tried and executed.

Some 50 conservative MPs marched through parliament's main hall on Tuesday, chanting "Death to Mousavi, death to Karroubi", shown on state TV.

Thousands of opposition supporters had protested in Iran's capital on Monday.

One person was reportedly shot dead in the violent clashes between protesters and security forces in central Tehran.

The BBC received reports of banned demonstrations in other Iranian cities, including Isfahan, Mashhad and Shiraz.

In the capital, dozens were detained, and opposition leaders including Mr Mousavi and Mr Karroubi were placed under house arrest.

Police blocked access to Mr Mousavi's home in what the former prime minister's website said was intended to prevent him attending the Tehran rally, which was lauded by the US administration.

Both he and Mr Karroubi - a former speaker of parliament and a senior cleric - disputed the re-election of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in June 2009, which triggered protests that drew the largest crowds in Iran since the Islamic Revolution in 1979.

The authorities responded by launching a brutal crackdown.

Islamists, it seems no matter the strain, the end solution is always the same. Kill somebody. Anyone really, take your pick. That part matters less.

Is Islam really a one trick pony? From where I'm sitting, yeah pretty much.

Update: The Muslim Brotherhood applies for party status...

he Muslim Brotherhood is supposedly banned in Egypt, so here’s the result of their application:

1. Approved - They win the election hands-down, probably without much rigging at all. It’s well-known that the vast majority of the Egyptian population want Shari’a Law instituted and Islam as the political decision-maker.

2. Denied - The ‘protests’ not only remain, but increase by the day in locations, size and...... well...... let’s call it ‘intensity’…… All that without any sort of help from The MB or a ‘nudge’ from anywhere else of course.

And of course, “It can’t happen here”.

Update by SH: Over zealous teacher arrested and released on bail pending further inquiries. The kicker? (pardon the pun)

An Islamic school in Birmingham in the same documentary, where a preacher was filmed making offensive remarks about non-Muslims, said it would close early for half-term, amid fears pupils could be the target of far-right groups.
Always Islamophobia blather when caught
The Birmingham footage was obtained by an undercover reporter posing as a volunteer, using a hidden camera. It showed a preacher at Darul Uloom, a fee-paying school in Small Heath, making offensive remarks about Hindus, ranting about non-Muslims and telling pupils they face torture in the afterlife if they adopt western customs such as dancing or listening to music. He tells them to avoid more liberal Muslims. "The person who's got less than a fistful of beard, then you should stay away from him the same way you should stay away from a serpent or a snake."

Another group are told in an assembly: "The disbelievers, they are the worst of all people. The Hindus do, they drink piss, I've told you this. Do they have any intellect? No."

If the table was turned and kaffirs said to students 'Muslims drink piss' all hell would break loose in the Muslim community.

Politics as Usual?

Wow, Andrew Sullivan takes Obama to task over his budget cuts being weak.

..This president is too weak, too cautious, too beholden to politics over policy to lead. In this budget, in his refusal to do anything concrete to tackle the looming entitlement debt, in his failure to address the generational injustice, in his blithe indifference to the increasing danger of default, he has betrayed those of us who took him to be a serious president prepared to put the good of the country before his short term political interests. Like his State of the Union, this budget is good short term politics but such a massive pile of fiscal bullshit it makes it perfectly clear that Obama is kicking this vital issue down the road.
Its so much fun to watch them devour themselves.

But seriously. There are some very good points.

Berlusconi Sex Trial!

Jawa Report: Bringing you all the best tabloid stories with little or no shame.

ididbelusconi.jpg

NYT's:

A Milan judge on Tuesday ordered Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi to stand trial in April on charges of paying an underage nightclub dancer for sex and abusing his office to help release her from police custody when she was detained for theft, Italian news media reported.

The fast-track trial is expected to begin on April 6, according to news reports citing a statement by the Milan judge.

Mr. Berlusconi denies wrongdoing. After the decision on Tuesday, he did not appear at a scheduled news conference in Sicily, where Italy is seeking to stem a flow of more than 5,000 illegal immigrants from Tunisia.

The legal age of consent in Italy is, holy cow, 14. But it is unlawful to engage in prostitution until the age of 18. Ms. Ruby, her stage name, was 17 when she let the PM boink her.

Berlusconi has said, "I didn't pay her for the sex". Which is a round about way of saying, "Yeah I hit that."

More painstaking research below the fold. I say painstaking from cleaning up all the infections that Ruby Heartthrob passes along. She looks good but the girl has worms.

Aren't You A Little Green To Be The Pale Rider?

I really don't know what to make about this.

I like Glenn Beck, I like The Blaze, but........ the fourth horseman of the Apocalypse wasn't riding a GREEN horse. He rode a PALE HORSE.

Fourth seal is opened : a pale horse appears, its rider is called Death

{7} When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, "Come!" {8} I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth.

Just sayin'!

Harvard Historian Slams Obama On His Handling Of Egypt

Via NewsBusters:


Partial transcript (Read more of the transcript at NewsBusters):

FERGUSON: President Obama is one of the least experienced men, in terms of foreign policy, ever to occupy the White House. And yet he has advisors around him who are, frankly, second if not third rate. And you just can't do that. It's far too risky, it's far too dangerous a world, and some of us said this, when he ran for election, that it was a huge risk to put somebody with that kind of inexperience into a position like Commander-in-Chief of the United States. I think what we're seeing unfold in Egypt reveals the truth of that statement.

(...)

FERGUSON: I do think that the President regards making touchy-feely speeches as a substitute for having a strategy, and I want to emphasize the risks that are currently being run in that region. If you look at history – and remember, I'm a historian – most revolutions do not lead to happy-clappy democracies, but to periods of internal turmoil, often to periods of terror, and they also lead to external aggression because the simplest way to mobilize people in a relatively poor and not very well-educated country like Egypt is to point to the alleged enemy within and then, of course, the enemy abroad. The scenarios that the Israelis are looking at involve a transition not to some kind of peaceful and amicable democracy, but to a Muslim Brotherhood-dominate regime, which then pursues an aggressive policy towards Israel. This is not a zero-probability scenario, this is a high-probability scenario, and as far as I can see the President isn't considering it.

WTF? WMD Smuggled Into US

The story and video can be found here and here. I got this from Ace who offers three plausible reasons why the guy would claim there have been WMD found at border crossings or otherwise smuggled into the US.

Let me offer a fourth possible explanation: the law enforcement definition of WMD and what normally passes for WMD in the public's imagination are much different.

When we think of WMD we think of dirty bombs or chemical weapons. But law enforcement has a technical and very specific meaning when they speak of WMD. Something as small as a pipe bomb can be classified as WMD to law enforcement. In fact, the charge of "possession of a weapon of mass destruction" is pretty common.

I'm just throwing that out there as another explanation.

Zuhdi Jasser on Suhail Khan and the Muslim Brotherhood at CPAC

I wonder if Suhail Khan will call Zuhdi Jasser an Islamophobe? Jasser speaks with Glenn Beck today on Suhail's "no Muslim Brotherhood in the United States" statement at CPAC over the weekend.

“Absolutely. I mean, if you look at any ‑‑ anybody that looks at any of the work being done, whether it was the Holy Land Foundation that showed a whole nexus, our documentary, the Third Jihad [which] talked about the documents that were demonstrated from 1991 that showed a whole Nexus of operating organizations that were founded by members that came out of the brotherhood, out of Egypt and out of the Middle East,” Dr. Jasser said.

“The brotherhood is much more than the brotherhood. It’s the ideology of political Islam. It’s a mixture of mosques and states. It’s the desire to establish Islamic statism and put Sharia law into government,” Dr. Jasser said.

“[Khan] just wants us to accept it on face value that he’s a conservative and he’s all about Western ideals when, in fact, talked about American ideals, talk about Egypt, talk about other things. He never identifies the brotherhood as a threat and that to me is a problem for somebody who’s an avowed conservative.”

Who are the "Real Muslims"?

M. Zuhdi Jasser's piece at the American Thinker.

I don't like blog wars, and I think that the work of Robert Spencer and Pam Geller is sometimes important. No, more than that: sometimes very important.

But, like all bloggers and public figures who write volumes and volumes of material, I think they get it wrong sometimes. Which is simply to say they, like the rest of us, are not exempt from human weakness. Even I get it wrong sometimes.

Which is why I'm springing to Jasser's defense: Geller gets it wrong in saying that "Jasser's Islam does not exist." Perhaps the larger point that Robert Spencer makes in her defense was that the King Congressional hearings on domestic terrorism will be a waste of time. To that, I cannot speak. I can only hope that they will be productive. And if they don't do much then I'm not sure what else to call it but a typical day on Capital Hill.

But if it is a minor point, then it resonates with me and it's been something that's been bothering me for some time.

I've always had a problem when people try to characterize religious practices as within orthodoxy or outside of it. On this front it's personal as my own Christian faith is certainly unorthodox. So much so, in fact, that I've been told I'm not a Christian by many fundamentalists because I don't believe in this or that theological point. Perhaps this is why Jasser's defense of his own Muslim bona fides resonate with me.

As it is with Christians who try to define this or that Christian sect out of Christianity, so to it is true in Islam. It is a faith as varied as Christianity is.

Some Muslims -- far too many -- think that their faith requires them to adopt sharia law. A subset of this group -- fewer, but still far too many -- think that violence is justified in bringing about the union of church and state.

Others, like Jasser -- far too few, IMHO -- do not.

And still others -- like the 80+% of Egyptians who both believe in freedom of religion and yet believe the death sentence should be inflicted on apostates -- live with the cognitive dissonance of being against sharia in theory, yet support it in practice. These data suggest that in some countries this group is an overwhelming majority, and in other countries a plurality.

So, is Jasser a Muslim? Who am I to say who is and who isn't a Muslim? If you say you are a Muslim and you've taken the shahada, you are a Muslim!

But the principle cuts both ways.

Al Qaeda and other Salaafi jihadist groups practice takfiri, which means they declare other Muslims to be non-Muslims or apostates.

Moderate Muslims often decry this practice as un-Islamic.

Ironically, these same moderates are often heard loudly and vocally proclaiming that Islamist terror organizations are non-Islamic!

If conservative forces within Islam do not have the right to claim that moderate, liberal, and secular believers are non-Muslim; then it follows that moderate, liberal, and secular Muslims do not have the right to claim that Osama bin Laden is not a "true Muslim" or that he follows a "perversion of Islam".

Radical Islamist groups have not "perverted true Islam" any more than liberal secularist anti-Islamist groups have.

Authentic Islam is as elusive as authentic Christianity.

It's especially grating when non-Muslims do this. If my students are any kind of representative sample, then most Americans believe they are experts on Islamic theology declaring and that the "true Muslim" looks something like a cross between a Unitarian and a Mennonite.

Osama bin Laden is a Muslim, but so too is Dr. Jasser. The fact they they practice different versions of Islam does not authenticate one over the other.

Pentecostals and Orthodox Christians have very different versions of what Christianity should look like, yet both sets of believers are Christians.

Let me also say that I agree wholeheartedly with Jasser's opinion that it is political Islam that is a threat to our liberty, not Islam.

However, by Jasser's own admission it is not clear whether or not the secular forces within Islam are anything approaching the numbers needed to effectively fight Islamist tendencies. Especially when we consider the large numbers of Muslims who claim to want what Jasser wants -- the separation of mosque and state -- and yet have no problem calling for the outlawing of certain forms of religious criticisms --- or worse.

I will agree with Jasser that Pamela Geller doesn't have the right to declare that "Jasser's Islam does not exist". Jasser and people like him are a clear indication that it does.

But to me that's not the point. The real question is how representative Jasser's Islam is of the broader Muslim community? And that is a question for statisticians, not for amateur theologians.

I bring this up because even if Jasser is a minority of one, he needs to be supported given that his goals mesh precisely with the goals of the anti-jihad community.

But what secular Muslims like Jasser ought to be cautious of is the tendency for liberals to hold secularists like them up as if they are representative of the entire Muslim world. Aha, see, they say, this Muslim believes in secular governance and so too do most other Muslims .

The problem of generalizing based on anecdotal evidence is not limited to liberals in their attempt to convince the world that Muslims are no more likely to commit acts of terror than are Christians. It is a widespread phenomena.

It's the flip side of those who would hold al Qaeda up as representing the beliefs of a billion Muslims.

Which again is why surveys and other data that can be quantified are always best when trying to see whether an example is representative or not. But since the surveys show cause for alarm for the prospects of Jasser's way of thinking coming to dominate in the Islamic world any time soon, then please excuse my pessimism.

7/7 Jihadi Quietly Released

I can understand the frustration of the families of victims killed in the 7/7 London bombings at the release of Mohammed Junaid Babar after only 5 years in custody. However, the analogies in the British press between the release of Babar and Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi are rather silly. Al-Magrahi was convicted of murdering 259 people in cold blood. Babar's crime was that he helped facilitate people and equipment to an al Qaeda training camp in Pakistan.

Further, al-Megrahi never fessed up to his culpability in the mass murder claiming a conspiracy against him until the end. Babar, on the other hand, turned states evidence and testified on numerous occasions against his former al Qaeda colleagues. Babar's help to the state may also have been key in preventing another 7/7 type attack in the UK.

Does this make Babar a saint? No. Babar was clearly a former traitor to the US. Regardless of whether or not he was truly repentant or whether he was just trying to reduce his potential 50 year jail sentence the outcome is the same: lives saved.

Moreover, the analogy between Babar and al-Megrahi further breaks down in that the terrorist behind the Lockerbie bombing was released to line the pockets of British Petroleum. Even seen in the worst possible light, Babar's motives for testifying against fellow members of al Qaeda were not pure .... but nevertheless he was released because his testimony helped prevent terrorism.

Now, having said that is five years enough? Given that Babar was a US citizen aiding and abetting the enemies of the United States in a time of war, the initial charge should have been treason and the potential sentence should have been death. A plea bargain starting from that position probably would have -- and maybe should have -- resulted in a longer sentence.

But, we don't know the extent to which Babar helped the FBI and CIA in preventing acts of terrorism. If the reports in his sentencing hearing are to be believed, he was very helpful.

The Guardian:

An American jihadist who set up the terrorist training camp where the leader of the 2005 London suicide bombers learned how to manufacture explosives, has been quietly released after serving only four and a half years of a possible 70-year sentence, a Guardian investigation has learned.

The unreported sentencing of Mohammed Junaid Babar to "time served" because of what a New York judge described as "exceptional co-operation" that began even before his arrest has raised questions over whether Babar was a US informer at the time he was helping to train the ringleader of the 7 July tube and bus bombings.

Lawyers representing the families of victims and survivors of the attacks have compared the lenient treatment of Babar to the controversial release of the Lockerbie bomber, Abdelbaset al-Megrahi.

Malaysia: Fatwa on Valentine's Day

Malaysian Islamic Development Department (Jakim) director-general Datuk Wan Mohamad Sheikh Abdul Aziz says Valentine's Day is connected to 'vice':

......He said Islam was not opposing the celebration of love, but vice activities that usually took place during the celebration.

"That is why a fatwa (edict) was issued to prevent and advise Muslims not to celebrate Valentine's Day because in reality, as well as historically, the celebration of Valentine's Day is synonymous with vice activities," he said.

The fatwa, issued by the National Fatwa Council during its 71st conference almost six years ago, stated: "The spirit of Valentine's Day celebrations is associated with elements of Christianity and vice activities that are prohibited in Islam."

Vice, what vice?

Huffpo Sells For 315 Million Bloggers Get F*cked

What else did you expect the bloggers to get? Seriously.

When The Huffington Post announced earlier this week that it was being acquired by AOL for $315 million in cash and stock, one group felt slighted: a set of unpaid bloggers for the site, identifying by the Twitter hashtag #huffpuff, which claims that The Huffington Post has “built a blog-empire on the backs of thousands of citizen journalists.”

Some analyses in the mainstream media have echoed these sentiments. “To grasp The Huffington Post’s business model,” wrote the Los Angeles Times’s Tim Rutten, “picture a galley rowed by slaves and commanded by pirates.”

I have enormous sympathy for anyone writing about public affairs, whether as a hobby or as a career. And I’d encourage people to think very carefully about where they are doing their writing, and what they are getting paid for it.

Despite all the accusations by sponsored blogs like say, Oliver "My Little Bitch" Willis, of Jawa Report bloggers being "fundies" guess what?

It looks for the most of us blogging will forever remain a hobby and as far as "fundie" is concerned. In the end we all work for the same people.

But hey, that will buy a large bag of dog food will it not? You'll be a big hit under the bridge with all the other homeless losers.

Algerian Government Closes Facebook Then Entire Internet

Pajamas Media:

Algerian authorities have sent out riot squads armed to the teeth and have shut down the Internet in an effort to avoid repeating the actions of Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, the Daily Telegraph reported.

...These kinds of tactics were predicted in the previous post, Contagion, which asserted that the lesson that Cuba, Iran and every authoritarian regime in the Middle East would have learned from President Obama’s handling of the Egypt crisis was to go ugly early.

The opportunistic foreign policy followed by the administration would drive regimes to conclude never to give their populations the opportunity in the first place. Given this, the administration will therefore have to either create a real “Democracy Agenda” of its own, with a strategy, doctrine and logistical apparatus or continue employing a public relations program masquerading as one. But PR programs can only go so far and surprise only works the first time, after that, preparation and consistency count.

The Chinese Hack Industry

It sounds to me like a reporter PWNED this dude.

A Chinese man cited by a U.S. security firm as being linked to cyberspying on Western oil companies said Friday his company rents server space to hundreds of hackers.

The disclosure highlighted the pervasiveness of both professional and amateur hacking in China, a leading source of Internet crime. But it also left open the possibility that the hackers cited in a report Thursday by McAfee Inc. might be non-Chinese who concealed their identities by routing thefts through computers in China.

The man cited by McAfee, Song Zhiyue, is a salesman for a company in the eastern city of Heze that rents server space. He said he has heard of Chinese hackers targeting U.S. oil companies but he declined to comment on McAfee's report. It said Song provided crucial infrastructure to the hackers but wasn't believed to be the mastermind.

"Our company alone has a great number of hackers" as customers, Song said in a telephone interview. "I have several hundred of them among all my customers."

Song said hackers using his company's services had an estimated 10,000 "meat computers" controlled remotely without the owners' knowledge. He said "yes" when asked whether such activities might be improper but he said Chinese authorities never have contacted him about them. He hung up the phone when a reporter asked for other details.

Hung up? Why that's totally rude. He'll never sell anything that way.

Let's see, I dunno but kinda Googling that city for hosting services returns this company called Cloud Hosting.

"Behind the scenes' look at YouTube's content removal and deactivation policies

Video date May 06, 2010. Nothing has changed, porn still seems to be the most important 'flag'. However, I did find something interesting about this 'summit'. See below video.

Global Voices Citizen Media Summit_george soros.jpg

A Discussion of Content Moderation: Global Voices Citizen Media Summit Santiago, Chile, May 6, 2010. Victoria Grand, Senior Manager for Communications at YouTube, speaks on content moderation processes. Grand provides a 'behind-the-scenes' look at YouTube's content removal and deactivation policies. The panel discusses content removal and deactivation across a number of platforms, as well as the importance of context and transparency in dealing with activist content on these platforms.
Hmmmm, I find it very interesting George Soros "Open Society Institute' was one of the sponsors of this 'summit'. Makes one wonder why antisemitism and terrorist propaganda runs rampant on YouTube.

You can comment on the video here if you so choose.

Update: Two groups listed in the screengrab, George Soros 'Open Society Institute' and McArthur Foundation, are heavy funders for 'Net Neutrality' or better known as media-reform movement. Knight Foundation linked to Soros also along with Hivos

US State Department Calls For the Immediate Release of Syrian Blogger Tal Al-Mallouhi

CNN:

(CNN) -- The United States on Saturday called for the immediate release of a young blogger imprisoned in Syria on espionage charges.

"The United States strongly condemns Syria's secret trial of blogger Tal al-Mallouhi, calls for her immediate release, and rejects as baseless allegations of American connections that have resulted in a spurious accusation of espionage," State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley said in a statement.

"We call on the Syrian government to immediately release all its prisoners of conscience; and allow its citizens freedom to exercise their universal rights of expression and association without fear of retribution from their own government," he added.

Syrian Intelligence Services summoned al-Mallouhi, then 18 and a high school student, in December 2009 to question her about her blog, which contains poetry and social commentary on local and Arab affairs, the Syrian Human Rights Committee has reported.

I remember when she was taken into custody. I'm looking for the post now. I read her blog personally. It was in Googlish for me but it was decidedly democratic, anti-regime and surprisingly anti American as well. She may hate the Syrian dictatorship but from what I read any charge of her being a "spy for America" are pretty preposterous. I'll look for our earlier work on this.

In the mean time here are a few sites advocating for her release.

Taliban Attack Police in Khandahar Murder 15

bbckandaharexp.jpgBBC:

A Taliban raid on the southern Afghan city of Kandahar has killed 19 people, including 15 policemen, officials say.

Militants armed with suicide bombs, guns and rocket-propelled grenades struck the police headquarters in the city centre around noon.

Explosions shook the area as Afghan security forces battled the attackers for several hours.

Dozens of people were reported injured in the attack on the city, which is the birthplace of the Taliban.

President Hamid Karzai condemned the attack: "The enemies of Afghanistan have once again shown their evil intent."

The Nato-led International Security Assistance Force said besides the 15 policemen, one Afghan intelligence official, two Afghan soldiers and two civilians were killed.

A Taliban spokesman, Yousuf Ahmadi, said his group had carried out the attack.

on the bright side...
There were no reports of survivors among the militants.
But isn't that kind of the Taliban's gig? Go out, murder some innocent Muslims and get killed doing it.

All for no military gain or objective other than the spilling of blood?

Update: Some video from the scene below.

Religion of No Love: Down With Valentines Day

Saudia Arabia preparing for Love free Valentines Day, threatens shops

Iran also preparing to ban Love, a FB site set up to counter act the ban: Valentines for the Voiceless has been set up in conjunction with the Human Chain Project. Only 4 friends on the FB page, won't you consider becoming a friend?

To All Concerned, In conjunction with the Human Chain Project, I have launched a Facebook page titled Valentines for the Voiceless. The concept is very simple. Create Valentine's Day eCards on behalf of political prisoners and regime victims in Iran from images available online. I am now in the process of linking bios, awards, remembrances and petitions to each image in the V for V eCard image album, be they the dead Neda Soltan or the living Jafar Panahi. That I can do. I have already done so for Du'a Khalid Aswad, a young Kurdish girl who was executed by stoning on April 7, 2007 for the crime of dating a boy not a Muslim. It was an horrific death, as you might imagine.

But I did not create the V for V profile heart image of Du'a. It already existed online. Sad fact is, I am an old school writer who just traded in his Underwood for a PC. MS Office is about it for me. I couldn't Photoshop to save my life, and I HATE all this geeky tween social networking crap! I only do it for the greater cause of Iranian freedom, which would help us all sleep better at night. Please check out the V for V page, and if you know anyone skilled in Photoshop who would be willing to take a little time to make a regime victim eCard and post it on the wall, it would be GREATLY appreciated. That is all I ask.

Show the ROPMA some love for Valentines Day!

Protests In Yemen Lacking Media - Al Jazeera? (Except for JihadTube: Awlaki jihad media in need of smackdown)(1 vid PWND-next..)

bye bye mubarak!.jpg
Image: See Sweet Jane's post

Going to Yemen is like going to the belly of the beast. Thug Prez Saleh, and headquarters of AQAP (al-Qaeda in the Arabic Peninsula). American traitors live there - Awlaki & Samir Khan (aka Inshallasheed) for example. Al Jazeera could interview them, no?, besides the student protesters. Al Jazeera/Google/YouTube is the go to place for terrorist's groups to release their communiques.

YemenPost

Thousands of college students and other people marched on Saturday to Tahrir Square in a peaceful demonstration that originated at Sana'a University, but 'bullies' prevented them from walking into the square where tribesmen and pro-regime fans have been stationed.

The bullies or pro-Saleh protesters started to clash with the anti-government demonstrators who withdrew saying our demonstration is peaceful.

But Saleh's supporters pursued them and hurled stones at them. There were no injuries and the anti-government protesters ended their demonstration vowing they will continue their protest after the Tunisian and Egyptian people.

Early today, pro-government protesters gathered at Sana'a University and when students wanted to take to the streets they clashed with them injuring a student. Also, guards at the university arrested five student protesters.

Mubarak Resigns, Military in Control [UPDATE: Thanks and Congratulats Mubarak] **STICKY**MANY UPDATES**

I'm going to sticky this post, and since things are happening fast all updates will be below the fold.

Drudge is calling it a "military coup", but it's not clear to me yet if he was forced to resign by the military or if he stepped down in an effort to end the protest but leave the regime intact? It should be remembered that the current regime is simply the vestiges of a military coup that took place fifty years ago. Mubarak himself is a military man who was appointed by Sadat to be VP, and when Sadat was killed he filled the vacuum. So, for the military to take over now is not necessarily an indication that the regime is over.

In fact, it was VP Suleiman who made the announcement that the military was in control. Suleiman, like Mubarak before him, was head of the Egyptian Air Force. History repeating itself? We'll see:

Egypt's Hosni Mubarak resigned as president and handed control to the military on Friday after 29 years in power, bowing to a historic 18-day wave of pro-democracy demonstrations by hundreds of thousands. "The people ousted the president," chanted a crowd of tens of thousands outside his presidential palace in Cairo....

"In these grave circumstances that the country is passing through, President Hosni Mubarak has decided to leave his position as president of the republic," a grim-looking Suleiman said. "He has mandated the Armed Forces Supreme Council to run the state. God is our protector and succor."

Developing ......

UPDATE: Michelle says that Obama is going to speak @ 1:30 ET. I'm sure he will say that he supported Mubarak's removal all along.

AllahP, like Drudge, thinks this smells like a coup.

I'm watching al Jazeera live, and the crowds in Egypt are partying hard. They seem to be under the impression that replacing a dictator with a military junta (?) is somehow a good thing. Maybe it is, if it leads to a transition to democracy.

What are the odds of that? I'd give it 2:1.

UPDATE: Ellis Goldberg as put up a timely post at Foreign Affairs which is pessimistic enough to merit a link. Here's the summary:

Now that Mubarak has stepped down, the army may step in as a transitional power, recognizing that it must turn power over to the people quickly. More likely, however, is the return of the somewhat austere military authoritarianism of decades past.
Amr Hamazay, speaking on al Jazeera, says that he hears that marshal law is about to be declared and that the Army pushed Mubarak out. If he's right, this is a coup.

What's interesting is that Hamazay says he trusts the army to lift the state of emergency as soon as things calm down. Given that the original state of emergency was declared 30 years ago, don't you think this is kind of wishful thinking?

UPDATE: Someone in the comments noted that Feb. 11th was also the day the Shah's regime fell. I don't believe in numerology, so I'm inclined to go with coincidence.

But coincidences aside, history does have a tendency to repeat itself so I don't think looking to the Iranian Revolution is such a bad comparison. But Iran isn't the only model, there's also -- well, every other Middle Eastern country which ends nearly each and every revolution with a new dictator and/or military regime in place "temporarily".

Even if we look at the Cedar Revolution in Lebanon as the closest parallel the results aren't so wonderful. I'll note that the 2006 war with Israel was after the 2005 revolution and that the current coalition in power is pro-Syria and its main power base in from Hezbollah. Democracy Middle East style.

But Donald Sensing -- via Insty -- adds this bit of pessimism:

I would add that in no more than a week it will dawn on the proles that the eschaton has not arrived. Food will be neither more plentiful nor less expensive. Economically, Egypt is now worse off than it was yesterday since investment capital will no flow in and much foreign capital will likely be withdrawn. There is potential for serious unrest by this date in, say, April. If that happens and is widespread, then comes le deluge.
Let them eat cake!

UPDATE: Via The New Editor, here is an IBD editorial from yesterday. Feel the pessimism.

We've often cited the poll numbers presented in the IBD editorial as cause for pessimism in Egpyt -- 82% want to stone adulterers to death! But I have a feeling that even if the democratic process were to proceed and the most draconian of sharia law were to reach the legislative agenda that the military would intervene, as it has today.

Which would make the new normal pretty much like the old normal.

UPDATE: Hmmmmmm, the Mullahs in Iran seem to be scared. It's the one country in the Middle East where I suspect a popular revolution would mean less political Islam rather than more.

UPDATE: I just saw the military give it's third official statement. The spokesman, speaking on behalf of the Supreme Military Council, thanked Mubarak for all he's done and congratulated him for all he's done for Egypt. You'd think a true "coup" would condemn Mubarak for his "crimes" just before announcing public show trials.

UPDATE: Let me point you to Richard Fernandez's excellent piece. Here's a teaser:

What appears to be happening, as noted above, is that head of the system is changing, but the system itself remains largely intact. Egypt is now in the post-Mubarak period. But whether it is in the post-Army period or moving there, remains to be seen. Recent events may have convinced the Army officer corps that Mubarak had to go, but it probably still believes the Army has to remain in charge.
He also notes that while the US is scrambling to catch up and give money to opposition groups, that the Saudis and Iran are probably doing the same

UPDATE: Egypt's Military rulers suggest they will honor Israel treaty.

......A day after the ouster of Egypt's longstanding president, Hosni Mubarak, the country's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces issued a communiqué saying Egypt "is committed to all regional and international obligations and treaties." Those treaties include the country's 1979 peace agreement with Israel.
This is good news although probably premature. TBC (to be confirmed) should be in order.

Taliban's Brutality on Display: Picture of Bibi Aisha Wins World Press Photo Award

bibi aisha_time.jpg

Congratulations to the African photographer Jodi Biebe for capturing the brutality of Taliban 'justice'. I especially would like to congratulate Bibi Aisha for her bravery. 12yrs young and married to a Taliban pedophile who cut off her nose & ears because she tried to run away. Her mujahideen x can't hold a candle to the bravery of this young woman. May he rot in hell (if he isn't already there)

AMSTERDAM -- A South African photographer's portrait of an Afghan woman whose husband sliced off her nose and ears in a case of Taliban-administered justice won the World Press Photo award for 2010 Friday, one of photojournalism's most coveted prizes.

Jodi Bieber's posed picture, which contrasts the woman's arresting beauty against the results of the violence done to her after she fled an abusive marriage, was published on the cover of Time magazine Aug. 1.

Bieber is affiliated with the Institute for Artist Management/Goodman Gallery.

Jury members said the photo, though shocking, was chosen because it addresses violence against women with a dignified image.

The woman, 18-year-old Bibi Aisha, was rescued by the U.S. military and now lives in America.

Finally coming to a conclusion many right-wing bloggers have recognized for years...

"We have been too concerned about the identity of the person who was arriving and not enough about the identity of the country that was receiving him," Sarkozy said in the TFI channel show.

British Prime Minister David Cameron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Australia's ex-prime minister John Howard and Spanish ex-premier Jose Maria Aznar have also recently said multicultural policies have not successfully integrated immigrants.

Convicted Terrorist -- Hook Handed Abu Hamza al-Masri -- Preaching to His Followers from Prison, Demands Release of World Trade Center Bomber *Bumped*

That's some "prison" they got in the UK. The two interviews with Abu Hamza al-Masri are here and here.

Hat Tip: Jarret Brachman

UPDATE by Rusty: I bumped this because I think it's important for the British people to know just what is going on, and for Americans to understand just how unreliable the UK justice system is. Al-Masri was convicted on six charges of soliciting murder, "stirring up racial hatred", and possessing a "terrorist encyclopedia" by the British courts.

He is currently fighting extradition to the United States for plotting to open up a terrorist training camp in Oregon and providing material support to al Qaeda.

And yet here he is recording messages to the faithful from behind bars.

The audio is a recorded phone call between al-Masri and one of his followers.

The two recordings are generally about the protests in Egypt. Al Masri is Egyptian by birth, but is a citizen of the UK. However, if you listen to it you'll notice that he wanders from the topic of Egypt and urges Pakistan to do an "exchange of prisoners". In exchange for releasing jailed US diplomats, he would exchange them for convicted terrorists such as the mastermind of the first World Trade Center bomber the blind shiekh, Omar Abdel Rahman.

As the former leader of the UK's most radical congregation -- the Finsbury Park Mosque -- and one of the founders of the now banned al Muhajiroun group, it should be remembered that the greatest danger from al-Masri is not that he would personally commit an act of terrorism.

The danger from al-Masri is that he encourages others to kill and be killed. As long as he is free to speak to his followers -- even from behind bars -- he remains a danger to us all.

Remember Rashid Khalidi, Obama & the Missing Tape at LATimes?: Rashid Khalidi Thoughts on Egypt

obam_khalidi_la times.jpg

First, breaking news stating Mubarak stepped down as President of Egypt, Armed Forces of the High Council will lead the nation. Hmmm, what's next?

Now, regarding my headline: Obama & Khalidi go way back. During the presidential elections LA Times refused to release transcripts of a going away party for anti-Semite, ex-PLO mouthpiece Rashid Khalidi. Then Senator Obama paid a special tribute to his friend "Khalidi.

A special tribute came from Khalidi's friend and frequent dinner companion, the young state Sen. Barack Obama. Speaking to the crowd, Obama reminisced about meals prepared by Khalidi's wife, Mona, and conversations that had challenged his thinking.
Today Khalidi has an article at Salon
........For all the recent talk about supporting Egyptian democracy, what is ultimately vital to American policymakers is Egypt’s geopolitical alignment with the United States and its acquiescence in Israel’s regional hegemony -- a policy Mubarak, and under him Suleiman, have long facilitated. These core interests could well be affected by a fully democratic Egypt that sought to play a role commensurate with its size and history in regional politics and that represented faithfully the wishes of its people (as the current democratic Turkish government does).

A democratic Egypt might challenge American support of Israel's Middle Eastern nuclear monopoly, refuse to collude in Israel's illegal and immoral siege of Gaza, actively back a genuine inter-Palestinian reconciliation, or otherwise assert its independence from American and Israeli policies. It might do so even while respecting the letter of the (highly unequal) peace treaty with Israel and existing accords with the U.S. Given the blinders worn by American policymakers, such an Egypt would be a policy headache in Washington on the level of that caused by all three major regional powers, Israel, Turkey and Iran.

Khalidi has friends in high places ... still.

Indonesian Man Who Filmed Ahmadi Lynchings In Danger (Updated: More Blaming The Victims)

Muslims are outraged, not by the lynch mob that brutally killed three Ahmadiyah men, but rather by the release of a video showing the savage attack.

From Agence France-Prersse via Jihad Watch:

JAKARTA - An Indonesian man who risked his life to film a mob brutally lynching members of his minority Islamic sect is in grave danger and has gone into hiding, rights activists said on Friday.

The harrowing video of Sunday's attack shocked the mainly Muslim nation and graphically illustrated rising levels of intolerance and violence directed at religious minorities such as the Ahmadiyah sect.

It showed police running away as hundreds of Muslim thugs screaming 'Allahu akbar' (God is greatest) attacked a house belonging to an Ahmadiyah leader.

Three sect members were stabbed, clubbed and stoned to death.

'There was a warning from the national police detective that if the man appears in public, his life could be in danger,' National Human Rights Commission deputy chairman Joseph Adi Prasetyo told reporters.

Of course, the man who video-taped the lynchings was just an Islamophobe trying to make Muslims look bad. Shame on him.

Updates below the fold.

[Update] (Also via Jihad Watch) The Indonesian Government is blaming the victims. There was, since 2008, a ministerial decree which forbids "Ahmadiyah followers from promoting their activities," which, apparently, the Ahmadis chose to ignore (all emphasis mine):

Mainstream Muslim groups accuse Ahmadiyah members of heresy, saying that they profess their founder, Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, to be the final prophet of Islam — a tenet that runs directly against Islamic beliefs that reserve that claim for Muhammad.

The accusation is disputed by the Ahmadiyah community, but this claim is largely behind the 2008 joint ministerial decree banning Ahmadiyah members from spreading its faith.

Activists say this decree gave cover for extremists to act out their hatred.

...Hazrul Azwar, a lawmaker from the Islam-based United Development Party (PPP), called for stronger action.

"The Ahmadiyah should be disbanded permanently, as long as the government is not strict enough the conflict is never going to end," he said.

The Ahmadis exist and, therefore, incite the religious conflict. But doesn't that pretty much sum up the conflict between Islam and all the rest of humanity?

[Update II] Two attackers have been detained. Officials are still blaming the victims. It has also come out that the police knew about the impending attack three days before the lynchings (again, emphasis mine):

Of five suspects identified in Sunday's deadly mob attack on an an Ahmadiyah community in Cikeusik district, Pandeglang, only two are in police custody, according to Banten Police Chief Brig. Gen. Agus Kusnadi. The other three, identified only as Banten "clerics," are still free because there is no strong legal basis to detain them.

...In addition, Agus insisted, as have other officials, that the attack on the Ahamdiya followers was "provoked" by the minority group in the face of an angry mob seeking to oust them from the village.

...“We didn't let it happen, we had anticipated it. The clash happened because there was provocation from the people who were attacked and the big number of attackers,” he said.

According to Agus, on Feb. 3, Pandeglang Police received an SMS saying there would be an eviction and disbandment of Ahmadiyah followers in Cikeusik by fundamentalist Muslims who object to the group's theology.

The attacks happened on February 6th. Authorities had three days to prepare for the impending conflict but did nothing except blame the victims:

At about 10 a.m., a mob of some 1,500 people came to Suparman's house. The Ahmadis inside the house, Agus said, provoked them and an attack was inevitable.

Obama Advisor Delivered Presidential Threat To Pakistan Over Detained American, Say Officials

Does Obama have the stones to carry this out....

ABCNEWS

Pakistani officials said President Obama's national security advisor summoned Pakistan's ambassador to the White House Monday evening to deliver a threat from the president: Release Raymond Davis, an American being held in Lahore for killing two Pakistanis, or face the consequences.


National Security Advisor Tom Donilon told Ambassador Husain Haqqani, according to two Pakistani officials involved in negotiations about Davis, that the U.S. will kick Haqqani out of the U.S., close U.S. consulates in Pakistan, and cancel an upcoming visit by Pakistan's president to Washington, if Davis, a U.S. embassy employee, is not released from custody by Friday.

The outlines of the threat were confirmed to ABC News by a senior U.S. official, who was not authorized to speak on the record. A White House spokesperson, Tommy Vietor, declined comment.

Ambassador Haqqani denied, via Twitter, that any "US official, incl the NSA, has conveyed any personal threats 2 me or spoken of extreme measures."

So who is Raymond Davis...

DNI James Clapper: Egypts Muslim Brotherhood Largely Secular (Update: Video added)

“Allah is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.”

Click me

WTF?

During a House Intelligence Committee hearing Thursday, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper called Egypt's branch of the Muslim Brotherhood movement "largely secular."

In response to questioning from Rep. Sue Myrick (R-N.C.) about the threat posed by the group, Clapper suggested that the Egyptian part of the Brotherhood is not particularly extreme and that the broader international movement is hard to generalize about.

"The term 'Muslim Brotherhood'...is an umbrella term for a variety of movements, in the case of Egypt, a very heterogeneous group, largely secular, which has eschewed violence and has decried Al Qaeda as a perversion of Islam," Clapper said. "They have pursued social ends, a betterment of the political order in Egypt, et cetera.....

Tip: Rifqa Bary Makes Her First Public Comments Since Turning 18

The Church Report:

Rifqa Bary, made international headlines in fall of 2009 when she fled her home in Columbus, Ohio to Orlando, Florida after her devout Islamic Father threatened her life for not renouncing her conversion to Christianity which she hid from them for three years before being discovered on Facebook by leaders of the Noor Islamic Mosque. The case brought the discussion of the Islamic practice of honor killings to a national audience. After Rifqa’s legal team secured her status as a U.S. Legal Resident and prevailed in the Dependency case, Omar Tarazi retaliated against Stemberger by filing a ten million dollar defamation lawsuit against him in federal court and then bringing grievance charges against him with the Florida Bar. Tarazi’s primary complaints come from last 30 seconds of a Fox News interview that Stemberger agreed to do, where Tarazi’s name was not even mentioned.

Rifa Bary states that her attorney, Stemberger “behaved in a very professional and ethical manner during the entire time he represented me.” She continues saying that, Stemberger “played a major role in my eventual safety… and securing my position as a Legal Permanent Resident of the United States. I am grateful to this lawyer for his pro-bono service to me...and was completely satisfied with his legal services.”

Of Tarazi’s behavior, Rifqa laments, saying he “conducted himself unprofessionally and harmed my ability to reunite myself with my parents in a number of ways…” She then alleges ten things Tarazi did in the Ohio case that she felt was improper, unethical and or illegal. Among those include, filing criminal charges against her and her Ohio lawyer Angie Lloyd; intercepting and opening her personal mail in violation of federal law; moving to hold her in contempt of court; trying to stop her from getting Christmas cards from friends and supporters; trying to have her computer monitored; and encouraging Rifqa’s parents to release her diary to The Orlando Sentinel to publish and print “my inner most personal and private thoughts…and the secrets of my heart to the whole world.”

The scathing three page document, which redacts the state and county where the statement was made, also refutes several of the allegations Tarazi has brought against Stemberger in the Bar complaint. Bary ends the affidavit with, “Attorney Tarazi behaved very inappropriately and he is the one that ought to be severely disciplined, not Mr. Stemberger.” A full copy of Rifqa’s affidavit along with the Fox News video in question can be found under the “News” and “Questions” tabs respectively at www.StembergerDefense.com.

Congressman's Internet Fail

Dumbass, name your sock puppet someone else, use a fake pic, or better yet just become a cartoon character.

Rep. Christopher Lee resigned from office Wednesday just hours after a report claimed the married Republican congressman sent a shirtless photo of himself to a woman on Craigslist.

The New York congressman formally submitted a resignation letter to House Speaker John Boehner.

"It has been a tremendous honor to serve the people of Western New York. I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents. I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness," he said in a statement.

"The challenges we face in Western New York and across the country are too serious for me to allow this distraction to continue, and so I am announcing that I have resigned my seat in Congress effective immediately."

Boehner told Fox News that he did not have any conversation with Lee pressuring him to resign.

Good thing we got this guy out. He's too stupid to walk and chew gum.

No word on what Mrs. Lee says, I mean did she send him out scouting for a third? I don't have a pic so we may never know if it would have been good gay. We'd like to think so seeing he was a Republican and all.

Irony: Obama Admin: AK's "Not an emergency"

Breirbart: White House says no to emergency AK-47 regulation.

White House Office of Management and Budget spokeswoman Meg Reilly said the Administration called the ATF last week, informing the agency its proposal—which had been published in the Federal Register in December—was not deemed an emergency, which would have cut short public review.

"Our objective is to ensure that any information collection in this area is as informed and effective as possible, and public comment is critical to that outcome," said Reilly.

Reilly said that to speed things along, the White House allowed for the review clock to start when ATF posted the notice in December, so it's almost concluded, with Feb. 14 being the last day for the public to send comments.

The crowd started chanting, “One hand, one hand,” with Mr. Ghonim leading the crowd.

WASHINGTON — Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano offered a sobering assessment of the terror threat facing the United States on Wednesday, saying it was at perhaps the "most heightened state" since the Sept. 11 attacks nearly a decade ago.

Napolitano, appearing before the House Homeland Security Committee, said the threat from al-Qaeda, the group that planned the assaults in 2001, has been augmented by al-Qaeda-inspired groups and the emergence of homegrown radicals in the USA.

PA Man Being Investigated for Providing "Material Support for Terrorism" (bumped)

Much like Mashoom's mustache, this story physically excites me. We told you our old buddy Emerson "Goatly" Begolly was up to more no good than initial reports suggested. In addition to pleading not guilty, the story adds this important bit of info:

The FBI needs to keep other computer equipment while the agency examines it for evidence that Emerson Begolly, 21, used it to provide material support to terrorists, Assistant U.S. Attorney Paul Hull said in a court document filed yesterday. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms is running traces on the seized weapons, Hull said in the filing. Any that are cleared will be returned, Hull said.

Federal agents have testified that Begolly also posted advice on pro-jihad websites that describes how to turn a car into a bomb, how to buy firearms in the United States, how to rig a firearm from a flare gun and how to sabotage railroad tracks.

I'm guessing that more charges will be forthcoming as Begolly was well connected online. Not just to jihadi wannabes, but to actual terrorists. I think I can count at least half a dozen known terrorists which Goatly was publicly engaged in conversations with on jihadi forums without much effort. And I don't think I linked it earlier, but another story from about a week ago mentioned that Begolly was under a FISA warrant, which means that his surveillance was connected to suspected terrorists in other countries. Who? Well, let's just say Yemen comes immediately to mind.

I'm not sure how seriously they took Goatly -- as his main interest was in music designed to encourage violent jihad, calling himself "nasheed expert" for the past four or five years -- but court documents indicate that he took himself serious and was planning acts of violence here on US soil.

Lindsay Lohan Charged with Felony Grand Theft

whatnecklace.jpg

CNN:

Prosecutors formally charged Lindsay Lohan on Wednesday with felony grand theft related to a necklace allegedly taken from a California jewelry store last month.

The charge comes five weeks after the actress was released from court-ordered drug rehabilitation and less than three weeks before a judge said he might free her from supervised probation from a 2007 drunken driving conviction.

The 24-year-old actress "allegedly walked out of the store with the necklace on January 22," a statement from the district attorney's office said. "The owner reported the theft to the Los Angeles Police Department, which investigated the allegation and presented evidence to the D.A.'s office last week."

The necklace was handed over to police just before they were to execute a search warrant to look for the jewelry in Lohan's Venice, California, apartment last week, police said.

Russia Arrests Moscow Airport Bomber's Family Members

You gotta admire Russia's no-nonsense approach to these terrorist scumbags:

Russian authorities named a suspected suicide bomber of Moscow's airport and arrested his teenage brother and sister, officials said Wednesday.

...A respected human rights activist from Ingushetia condemned the arrest of the underage suspects. "This is absurd and savage — to arrest people only because they are relatives of a suspected terrorist," Magomed Khazbiyev told the daily Kommersant.

The ITAR-Tass news agency reported Wednesday, however, that the investigators had found traces of explosives used in the airport bombing on the hands of Yevloyev's arrested brother.

Ingushetia's regional leader, Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, said DNA tests proved that Yevloyev was the bomber, while his brother and sister knew of the plan but did not tell their parents, the ITAR-Tass news agency reported.

...we reject the evils of nationalism, the evils of democracy, the evils of western liberal freedoms and the kufr evils of secularism and there is no true success nor freedom from oppression under man-made law but only under the shariah.

May Allah accept the efforts of those who took part, may he continue to humiliate the nationalists and the secularists and raise the banner of Tawhid over the buildings of Cairo and Egypt, ameen.

Islamic State of Egypt? Never?

Really never?

BIKYAMSAR: The talk about the increasing popularity of the Muslim Brotherhood among protesters is very true. It is not government propaganda. The politically motivated religious group, which is officially banned by the Egyptian regime, did not participate in the protests from the beginning as a group, but as individual Egyptians. On the second week of revolution, they decided to come to streets with their collective identity as members of the MB group. They did not use any specific MB-related or Islamic slogans, but they moved together in blocs.

Since Friday, the Muslim Brotherhood are dominating the protesting scene, especially in Cairo and Alexandria, although of course, there are so many other protesters from various groups: leftists, secularists, and liberals. Also, on the political level, we have seen them negotiating on behalf of protesters with the Vice-President, which can be interpreted as recognition from the state of their legitimacy.

That was not the case before January 25. That triggers the very important question on how big is the potential for the Muslim Brotherhood to lead the country after Mubarak leaves either now or after the end of his term.

To answer this question, let’s first try to interpret how the MB gained popularity among the protesters and are now negotiating in their name although they were not the starters of the revolution. Lasat Wednesday and Thursday there were horrible clashes between supporters of Mubarak (allegedly thugs hired by the regime to kill protesters) and young protesters. They were more than clashes, some of the thugs had guns and shot the protesters at night from the tops of the rooves in Tahrir Square. Some died and so many got injured. The MB members played a very important role in saving the lives of the majority of the protesters. They are very well trained on how to fight and how to defend themselves in armed conflict. They are highly organized.

After reading the entire post, and you should because I can't quote his whole post. I don't know that I'm quite that optimistic.

I agree that more Muslim brotherhood influence is not all that desirable. We cannot allow them the prey on this chaos to affect a radical Islamic State in Egypt.

They should not be banned. What you say? Yes they must be defeated in this instance in the realm of hearts and minds. Failure to allow them to play the game may result in a very bad and possibly violent end to this.

But freedom requires that they be faced in the political realm. Lest their power become overly magnified because other factions suffer from lack of support.

Over time, I'll play freedom against the al-Qaeda doctrine any to day to any one.

It also helps I think that Egypt has a very strong identity that predates Islam itself.

Go freedom!

New iPhone Game Under Fire

One thing that would make this game even better is if you had to feed and water your immigrants to keep them alive as you smuggle them across the border...

From MSNBC:

BOSTON — A game developed by a Boston-based tech company that allows users to drive a truck full of immigrants through the desert and try not to have them tossed out is drawing fire from some immigrant advocates.

"Smuggle Truck: Operation Immigration," a proposed iPhone and iPad app by Owlchemy Labs targeted for release in March, lets players navigate through what appears to be the U.S.-Mexican border. As the truck drives over cliffs, mountains and dead animals, immigrants fall off the truck's bed. Scores are calculated by the number of immigrants helped crossing the U.S. border.

Somali Pirates Attack Italian Oil Tanker

CNN:

Pirates in the Indian Ocean attacked and boarded an Italian flagged and owned oil tanker on Tuesday, the European Union Naval Force Somalia said.

The incident occurred 670 nautical miles east of Yemen's Socotra Island.
The MV Savina Caylyn was headed from Sudan to Malaysia when five people on a skiff launched a "sustained attack" on the tanker with small arms and rocket propelled grenades and then got on the ship.

Check Your Prescription Labels

People make mistakes. Very, very bad mistakes.

She is six weeks pregnant and when she went to the pharmacy to pick up an antibiotic her doctor had prescribed, the pharmacist gave her an abortion drug by mistake.

I see a rather substantial lawsuit coming.

So I ask the Jawa readership. Is this completely the pharmacist's fault, or does she have some culpability because she didn't check the label on the medication before taking it? I was gung ho to hoist the pharmacist on a pike but then a little voice said "not so fast..." I look forward to your comments.

Scheuer: bin Laden is alive, and Samir Khan sucks!

Watch Urban Infidels interview with Michael Scheuer. It's in six parts but it's worthwhile. I just got done watching it and was surprised by just how un-PC he comes off. And even though he's been out of the CIA for some time now, he apparently keeps up to speed as he spends some time talking about Samir Khan's role al Qaeda's propaganda machine.

Plus, the mustache. It physically excites me.

WTF? Guy Sues Google to Stop Muslims from Searching for His Nude Images or Something

He lost the case, but, um ...... dude?

not to allow nude photos to be returned when image searches include the terms “Curtis” or “Neeley” regardless of other terms entered unless entering user is known to be an adult and not a Muslim.
Okay, I'm mystified. The guy seems to be both a) a photographer who does nudes; and b) religious.

So, is he saying Muslims can't look at his nude photos because he's afraid of getting death threats? Or is he saying Muslims can't look at his nude photos because ... um, I'm kinda at a loss for another reason.

Robert Spencer thinks its some kind of sharia in cyberspace or something but I'm mystified as to motivation here.

Any guesses here people?

Suspected US spy drone crashes in Yemen: police

Hey Sami ...matter of time before we punch your ticket....they're hunting for you.

Emirates247 via AFP

A suspected US spy drone crashed near the south Yemen town of Loder on Tuesday, a police official said, as witnesses said Al-Qaeda forces made off with the plane's wreckage.

The drone crashed in Jahayn village near Loder, in Yemen's Abyan province where Al-Qaeda has a strong presence, and was found by local residents, the official told AFP.

Witnesses told AFP that Al-Qaeda forces were able to seize what remained of the drone.

The police official said the drone was a Predator, which are used for reconnaissance but can also be armed with missiles. The US military has widely used Predator drones in Afghanistan and Pakistan.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said he believed the drone was "monitoring the movements of Al-Qaeda partisans, who have a strong presence" in Loder.

There are conflicting reports on whether AQ has the drone wreckage...who knows .......and the ones who do know ain't talking.

And yes the hunt goes on..

Online Jihadi Charged in Germany Over Recruitment Videos

Germany has been well behind the curve on Islamist militants. But the charge leveled against this online jihadi that the videos he made on behalf of a terrorist organization merits prosecution is innovative.

Deutsche Welle:

Prosecutors said on Tuesday that police found small amounts of an explosive compound and remote detonators when they arrested him and searched his apartment on October 1, 2009.

The man is also believed to have offered bomb-making advice to a third party via the Internet, aware that the person he was helping intended to conduct a terrorist attack.

The three recruitment charges against Adnan V. relate to online videos he posted between October 2007 and September 2008, encouraging would-be militants to sign up with terrorist groups.

I hope we see these types of prosecutions expand to the rest of Europe and America. If this were the case, Samir Khan would be in jail for his online "Jihad Recollections" magazine, instead of in Yemen running courses on how to use the internet for new al Qaeda recruits.

Oh Noes!! Cablegate: Israel's Sekrit Hotline to the new vice-president of Egypt, Omar Suleiman

WikiLeaks/Telegraph is helping, you see, by publishing this.

Mr Suleiman, who is widely tipped to take over from Hosni Mubarak as president, was named as Israel's preferred candidate for the job after discussions with American officials in 2008.

As a key figure working for Middle East peace, he once suggested that Israeli troops would be "welcome" to invade Egypt to stop weapons being smuggled to Hamas terrorists in neighbouring Gaza.

The details, which emerged in secret files obtained by WikiLeaks and passed to The Daily Telegraph, come after Mr Suleiman began talks with opposition groups on the future for Egypt's government.

Everyone in Egypt loves Israel.../sarc With this new revelation regarding invading Egypt, how much longer will Suleiman be VP? Any bets?

Samir Khan and Aussie al Qaeda Buddies Run Free in Yemen

Dag Nabbit to Heck:

An Arab intelligence agent has told the ABC's Foreign Correspondent program that Australian citizens have been seen in Al Qaeda terrorist training camps in Yemen.

Yemen is fast earning a reputation as a launching pad for Jihadi-inspired terrorism.

The Arabian Peninsula nation is also the refuge of American-born radical cleric Anwar Al Awlaki, who recently became the first US citizen to be placed on the CIA's official assassination list.

The Australian Security Intelligence Organisation (ASIO) has listed 20 Australian citizens as persons of interest because they seem to have disappeared from the radar after travelling to Yemen.

Now there is new evidence young Australian men have indeed been recruited to Al Qaeda training camps.

For several months Foreign Correspondent has been in touch with an Arab intelligence agent who says he visited Al Qaeda camps and observed several Australians there.

"They have all kinds [of training]. They have Islamic studies; they have training in weapons; they have training in explosives," he said.

"They also have a classroom with computers for training on the internet."

The intelligence operative claims the camps are directed by Anwar Al Awlaki, a man whose other devotees have included the so-called underpants bomber - a young Al Qaeda-trained Nigerian man who tried to blow up an airliner over Detroit on Christmas Day in 2009.

"Their leader is Anwar Al Awlaki; he is their spiritual guiding father; he is second only to Osama bin Laden," he said.

"He knows that the internet is more powerful than the gun."

Well f*ck me a running. Which moron thought it was a good idea to let the editor of Inspire go to Yemen anyway?

WTF are we doing with those global predator thingies? This is a most dangerous and active front group. It needs killin'.

Digital activists in Egypt being trained by internet experts in New York, another Google link to connect?

Via CFP [Emphasis mine]

The revolution in Egypt is being masterminded by a phalanx of young Internet executives in the Big Apple’s SoHo, specially set up for fomenting revolutions, and the unwitting American taxpayer is paying for it.

When it comes to Revolution, today’s third world, digital activists are being better trained than anything to be found in Sun Tzu’s famed Art of War, and the ultimate fate of countless people who have never met them is being determined from afar by government-funded computer geeks.

Stealth and the cover of anonymity keep the internet warrior trainers safe in offices and homes, but not the tens of thousands on the ground. Identifying revolution rabble rousers would be akin to tracing back flash mobs.

Training Central for digital activists is the Alliance for Youth Movement (AYM)[Jared Cohen, AYM’s co-founder is Director of Google Ideas], a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting, connecting, and supporting digital activists from around the world[....]

Meanwhile, not since Tokyo Rose has information from afar been manipulated with such ease.

Generations indoctrinated by the US’s left-leaning public education system are now 30-year-old Internet executives who wield a power far more deadly than the globe’s most dreaded Armies.

And they don’t need a face mask to hide their identities.

See list of the Alliance for Youth Movement corporate partnerships here: [More..

Nothing to see here, move along

Egypt: Islamists Massacre Two Coptic Christian Families

While all eyes were on the protests on January 30th, Islamists murderers, aided by Muslim neighbors massacred 2 Coptic Christian families

News of an Islamist massacre of two Christian Coptic families has emerged from Upper Egypt with the return of Internet connections to the country, after a one-week Internet blackout imposed by the troubled regime. The massacre, not the first in Egypt in recent weeks, took place on Sunday afternoon (January 30) at the village of Sharona near Maghagha, in Minya province, and is being reported by AINA, the Assyrian International News Agency.

According to the report, the Islamist murderers, aided by Muslim neighbors of the Copts, stormed the homes of the families, gaining access to the houses' roofs from the roofs of the families' Muslim neighbors. They killed eleven, including children, and seriously injured four more people.

Anba Agathon, Bishop of Maghagha, told Coptic activist Dr. Mona Roman in a televised interview on Al-Karma TV that the killers are neighbors of the Copts, who "seized the opportunity of the mayhem prevailing in Egypt and the absence of police protection to slaughter the Copts."

The bishop said that he had visited the injured Copts at Maghagha General Hospital and that they informed him that they recognized the main attackers, who come from the same village, Sharona.

So much for Christians living safely side by side with their Muslim neighbors.

Thanks to unnamed person in comments.
