The chilling resemblance of a kitten named "Kitler" (right)
and the notorious mass-murdering dictator, Hitler
The six-week-old cat - which was abandoned at the roadside - earned the moniker because of her distinctive black moustache.
Staff at Wood Green animal shelter in Godmanchester, Cambs., say they are struggling to find her a loving home because of her unusual markings.
Um, yeah, I'm convinced that's the reason...
Lebanon: Terrorist Samir Kuntar Reportedly Injured in Explosion
Elder of Ziyon has the details with updates. Hopefully, one of his updates will be "Kuntar died from injuries sustained". I doubt it would be worded that way though.
Who is Kuntar?
Kuntar is Lebanese and a former member of the Palestine Liberation Front. On April 22, 1979, at the age of 16, he participated in the attempted kidnapping of an Israeli family in Nahariya that resulted in the deaths of four Israelis and two of his fellow kidnappers.Al Jazeera even threw him a "birthday party" to welcome his return:
Obstacles to Peace:
Danny, Einat and Yael Haran
Haim Shahar holding Eliyahu's picture
Kuntar was convicted in an Israeli court for murder of policeman Eliyahu Shahar, Danny Haran, and Haran’s four-year-old daughter, Einat, smashing her head against a rock and then against his rifle. He was also convicted of indirectly causing the death of two-year-old Yael Haran by suffocation, as her mother, Smadar, tried to quiet her while hiding from Kuntar.[Emphasis mine..ed]
In 1980, Kuntar was sentenced to four life sentences. Released in a 2008 swap for the bodies of two Israeli soldiers, Kuntar remains a reviled figure in Israel, a reminder of one of the most brutal acts of terrorism in the country's history.
He was given a hero’s welcome by Hezbollah on his return to Lebanon, and in the years since has emerged as one of the movement’s most visible and popular spokesmen.
This is one of several reasons why it makes me want to puke when our media and leftist, including Hillary, praise Al Jazeera.

Indonesia: Muslims Who Murdered Other Muslims Of The Wrong Kind Sentenced 3 To 6 Months
On Feb 6th, while the police looked or ran away, Indonesian Islamists savagely murdered three and seriously injured five other Muslims of the Ahmadiya Islamic sect. Ahmadiya are considered non-Muslims for their beliefs. The same ole wrong kind of Muslim excuse for murder and mayhem. Kinda like killing kaffirs because they don't worship the pedophile Mohammed.
12 Islamist were convicted and will be out in six months.
The outrage over the light sentence has upset some Islamic Scholars
Indonesian Islamic scholars had mixed reactions to criticism launched by Western nations of the apparent light sentences handed down to Islamist extremists who killed members of the Ahmadiyah sect in Cikeusik, Banten.Naturally Islamic scholars like Slamet will milk non-Muslim terrorist Breivik for all it's worth.
The district court in Serang, Banten’s capital on Thursday handed down jail sentences of between three and six months for all 12 defendants[...]
Three Ahmadis died in the videotaped attack while five others were seriously injured. The attack allegedly involved some 1,500 Islamist militants and about 20 Ahmadiyah members[Emphasis mine..ed]
But Slamet Effendy Yusuf, of the Indonesian Council of Ulema (MUI), criticized Western nations for only seeing the verdict from their own perspectives.
“Western countries must respect another country’s judiciary system based on its own cultural and philosophical background,” Slamet said.
He pointed out that Anders Behring Breivik, the man charged with killing 76 people in terror attacks on July 22, would face harsher penalties in Indonesia[Emphasis mine]
The following comment on the article sums it up:
Same old songs of muslims defending their fellow muslims and rejected whatever the western has to say. Oh yes this country's law seek 2 years for someone fail to provide indonesian language of ipad manual but 6 month minus detention period for murder. Yeah, western should not criticize us! Here (or at least for certain people) murder is a much less crime compared to electronic smuggling, corruption, and making porn. So stfu western! Murder ftw!If you have already seen the video tapes you realize just how savage this attack was.
Three to six fecking months, gawd.
Xariif, can you defend this?
Good News!! 26 AK-74 assault rifles & 1 Dragunov sniper rifle stolen from California military base...
FORT IRWIN, Calif. (AP) - More than two dozen assault rifles have been stolen from a Southern California military base, and investigators sought the public's help as they looked to arrest suspects and recover the weapons, federal officials said Friday.Why did they wait so long to alert the public? It wasn't Operation Fast and Furious /sarc
Twenty-six AK-74 assault rifles and one Dragunov sniper rifle were stolen from a supply warehouse at Fort Irwin in San Bernardino County on July 15, the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives says in a statement.
Some arrests have been made and one rifle has been recovered, but the agency is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to further arrests, the statement said
It took two weeks to worry about public safety? Gawd..
American & Kenyan Al Shabaab Leaders Placed On US Treasury Dept Terrorist Blacklist
It's about time the Treasury Dept. put American traitor Omar Hammami (aka Abu Mansour Al-Amriki) on the list. I wonder if this is a result of Rep Kings hearing this past week on al-Shabbab.
Hassan Mahat Omar is also a leader of a mosque in Nairobi's Eastleigh estate:
WASHINGTON -- The U.S. Treasury is putting two members of the Somali insurgent group al-Shabab on a terrorist blacklist.
The move against Omar Hammami and Hassan Mahat Omar would freeze any assets they hold in the United States and lock them out of the U.S. financial system.
The US Treasury Department announced on Friday that it is imposing financial sanctions on a Kenyan described as both a key figure in Somalia's al Shabaab insurgency and the leader of a mosque in Nairobi's Eastleigh estate.Keep the squeeze on these assmaggots please...
Hassan Mahat Omar is said by the department to have decision-making authority regarding the internal political and operational affairs of al Shabaab, which the United States terms a terrorist organisation.
Mr Omar as well as other top militants use the Eastleigh mosque to "raise funds, recruit and disseminate propaganda on behalf of Shabaab,"
Naser Abdo's Father Was Deported To Jordan For Solicitation Of A Minor (Updated-Criminal History Of Both Parents)
[Photo credit: GreenwichTime]
Police decoy sting[Velvet Hammer]
Jamal Abdo was arrested in 2004, accused of soliciting sex from a Garland detective posing online as “Molly,” a 15-year-old girl, according to records[...]Jamal, a Muslim, lived in Killeen for 25 years, he was divorced from Abdo's Christian mother.
Jamal Abdo unsuccessfully appealed his conviction. He was released from a Texas prison in December 2009 and turned over to Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials. He was deported to Jordan in February 2010.
Speaking from Jordan Jamal said the charges against his son were all lies from A to Z He also said the charges were trumped up because Abdo refused to fight in Iraq and Afghanistan
“My son loved people no matter who they are, whether Jews or Christians,” Jamal Abdo said. “Naser is not the kind of a person who harbors evil for the other people, he cannot kill anyone and he could not have done any bad thing.”POS Abdo took after his POS father, and pedophile Mo.
UPDATE: When Jamal first moved to Garlan, Texas he registered as a sex offender. So apparently, this wasn't his first sex offense. Abdo's mother also has a record. The "Christian" mother doesn't fit the narrative here:
His parents, Carlisa Morlan and Jamal R. Abdo, married in Dallas County in 1989 and divorced five years later, according to state records.Lovely, dysfunctional family Abdo has. Daddy is a convicted sexual pervert, mommy is/was a druggie, thief and a prostitute. Naser just added jihadi to the mixture.
Jamal Abdo moved to Garland some years ago, and one of the first things he did was show up at the Garland Police Department to register as a sex offender, Garland Police Officer Joe Harn said[...]
Naser Abdo’s mother, Morlan, pleaded guilty or was convicted of three drug-related charges in 2002. She completed probation on those charges, records indicate. She also either served jail time or received probation for two theft charges and prostitution in 2001 and ’02, according to Dallas County records.
What a family, eh?
UPDATE II: I was unsure if Naser lived with his mom, but apparently with her drug abuse, he was raised by his dad.
His[Naser] former neighbor said his home was broken and abusive. His parents Jamal Abdo and Carlisa Morlan were divorced.Money quote: “He just wasn’t right. It was just in his eyes.”
At the time she said Morlan was seeking help for substance abuse and was mainly absent from her kids’ lives. That left Abdo and his sister in the care of their Palestinian father, a Muslim[Palestinian father? He was deported to Jordon, hmmm..ed]
“The father was strange,” she said. “He just wasn’t right. It was just in his eyes.”
The media may be trying to set a "poor Naser" narrative, I don't buy it. I've known a few dysfunctional families but their kids didn't turn into domestic terrorists.

Zawahiri's Deputy, Bin Laden's Son-in-law dead?
Jihadis always frame the dead in pretty frames to post on the forums...although they usual show their dead faces and stuff. Flowers, lots of flowers. Maybe he was sploded real good? or, a hack like what happened to the Taliban announcing Mullah Omar's death?
I added the hack thingy because, as I said, this wasn't announced the usual way. I will leave the hammer and video for the time being.

"Squirt", lol, translate funnies!
A jihadist who shares the same name as Ayman al Zawahir's deputy and Osama bin Laden's son-in-law is said to have been killed, according to a post on an al Qaeda-linked forum. The report is unconfirmed, however.
Earlier today, a poster on the Al Fida' Forum claimed that an operative named Muhammad Abdallah Hasan Abu al Khayr was killed, according to a translation provided by the SITE Intel Group. The online jihadist who posted the eulogy, which is in the form of a poem, did not say where or when Khayr was killed, nor did he say if this was the same Muhammad Abdallah Hasan Abu al Khayr who is a senior deputy to current al Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri and who is also a son-in-law of slain al Qaeda emir Osama bin Laden, SITE noted.His 'death' wasn't announced in the usual way, sooo:
Three photos accompanied the post that announced Khayr's death. SITE also provided a photograph of the Khayr who is associated with Zawahiri and bin Laden, from his Saudi passport from the 1990s [see image above]. It is unclear if the two men are one and the same, although they do bear a resemblance to each other.More..]

It Worked Sammy! AQAP's Inspire Magazine Inspires Would be Fort Hood Terrorist (Bumped)
We've reported on this before, but I thought it deserved a stand a lone post and I wanted to document what some experts have been telling the MSM. Naser Abdo was making a bomb by following step by step instructions outlined in an al Qaeda magazine. I document that below.
Given that this is proof positive that jihadi propaganda not only inspires people within the US to kill but also trains them to do so, isn't this evidence that something needs to be done to stop its spread?
It's also strong evidence that Rep. Peter King's hearings on the radicalization of Muslims within the US are warranted and timely. Those claiming that home grown terror is not a pressing issue and who resort to accusations of Islamophobia are simply ignoring a mountain of evidence.
Private First Class Naser Jason Abdo had apparently stashed in the room an article from the first issue of al Qaeda's "Inspire" magazine called "How to Build a Bomb in the Kitchen of Your Mom."Kudos, Sammy. Kudos.
In addition to the magazine, one senior U.S. official told ABC News Abdo had also mentioned the name of one of the most high profile leaders of the Yemen-based al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP), American-born Anwar al-Awlaki
Below you will find details of the items that were found in Abdo's hotel room and backpack. Some of the items seem either strange or mundane and might leave one wondering if he really was in the final stages of making a bomb. But by comparing what was in Abdo's room with the directions given in AQAP's Inspire magazine, you'll see that Abdo was dead serious about killing.
Let me remind you what was found in his hotel room:
[S]ix pounds of smokeless powder, Christmas lights and battery operated clocks which were apparently intended to create a timing and triggering device of some type, sugar, shrapnel, pressure cooker, shot guns shells that were in the process of being dismantled to obtain their raw explosives.Below are some quotes and images from former Charlotte, NC resident and now al Qaeda propagandist Samir Khan's Inspire magazine (issue#1, p. 33 - 40).
On using a pressure cooker:
The explosion that results from this device is a mechanical one. It results from the pressure caused by the gases and therefore it only works if contained in a high pressure environment. So you may use iron pipes, pressure cookers, fire extinguishers, or empty propane canisters....How about that battery operated clock?
The pressurized cooker is the most effective method.
3. In the picture you will see the fine powder and you add to it sugar equivalent to ¼ its quantity.And the cartridges?
4. Mix the two substances until they become uniform in color.
You may substitute the inflammable substance extracted from matches by gunpowder used in cartilagesThere is no doubt, then, that Abdo was following the instructions for how to make a bomb from Samir Khan's Inspire magazine.
Why Did The Military Investigators Search Abdo's Military Computer Files?
Guess what, they weren't looking for child porn:
The Army approved Abdo's request to be discharged as a conscientious objector, but just days later the discharge was put on hold and he was charged with having child pornography on his government-issued computer. Military investigators had been looking at Abdo's computer files after he made "radical statements," law enforcement sources told ABC News.Nidal Hasan also made radical statements...and Abdo shouted out "Nidal Hasan Fort Hood 2009" at his court appearance today.
I had this in another post, removed it cuz it needed to stand alone.

Hero: Meet Clerk at Texas Gun Shop Near Fort Hood Who Alerted Police to Naser Abdo
Greg Ebert, retired Killeen PD officer.
God Bless him!

Nasser Abdo & the Iraq Veterans Against The War (IVAW)
The radicals in the Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) represented Naser Abdo in his conscientious objector's case. Since that time, they claim that they have had no further contact with Abdo. If that is true, then why were there IVAW members on his Facebook friends list?
The Jawa Report archived Abdo's Facebook page and friends list before it was taken down, so we have the proof.
In NYC, the IVAW also read a statement from Abdo regarding Islamophobia at a anti-war press conference.
The guys over at This ain't Hell have been covering the Abdo - IVAW for quite some time and have a number of posts regarding their cozy relationship. The relationship includes a number of anti-war radicals who lived in Killeen and were members or sympathizers of the IVAW operating a coffeehouse called the Under the Hood Cafe.
The links above are worth checking out.

Anti-War Groups Responsible for Abdo's Radicalization
Just asking questions, folks. Just asking questions.
Naser Abdo's Taqiyya: Yells Out Nidal Hasan's Name in Court
WACO, Texas - An AWOL soldier accused of plotting an attack on Fort Hood with a bomb in backpack was defiant during his first court appearance on Friday, yelling out the name of the Army physiacist [sic, they meant psychiatrist -- Nidal Hasan] blamed in the 2009 deadly shooting rampage at the same Texas base.Repeat after me: I am a kuffar so none of the peace sayings in the Koran apply to me.
Abdo, who had requested conscientious objector status because his Muslim beliefs prevented him from fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan, refused to stand up when asked to in court. As he left the room, he yelled: "Nidal Hasan Fort Hood 2009."
Hasan, an Army major, is charged with killing 13 people at Fort Hood in the worst mass shooting ever on a U.S. military installation.
Cornhole Watch: Revolution Muslim Blogger Gets 12 Years
An internet blogger has been jailed for 12 years after admitting soliciting the murder of MPs who had voted in favour of the Iraq War.Of course Revolution Muslim is not closed. It is in fact now called Islampolicy.
Bilal Zaheer Ahmad, 23, from Wolverhampton, was also sentenced for other terrorism offences.
Prosecutors at Bristol Crown Court said Ahmad had used a website called revolutionmuslim.com to encourage others to attack MPs.
The website has since been closed down by the authorities in the US.
Sentencing Ahmad, the judge, Mr Justice Royce, described him as a "viper in our midst" and said he was "willing to go as far as possible to strike at the heart of our system".
The judge told him: "Whatever our views on the Iraq War, we are a democracy.
Expect more to come on that soon.
Oh and I almost forgot Bilal, watch the cornhole....
Moderate To Radical In Less Than A Year
In less than a year, Nasser Abdo apparently went from a peaceful moderate Muslim who condemned the 2009 terrorist attack at Fort Hood to a radicalized Islamist ready to kill innocent people (all emphasis mine):
KILLEEN, Texas – As Pfc. Naser Abdo beseeched officials to grant him conscientious objector status and release him from the military, he condemned a fellow Muslim soldier accused of shooting 13 people to death at Fort Hood. Such acts, he wrote, "run counter to what I believe in as a Muslim."
Less than a year later, officials say Abdo has admitted planning to launch another attack on Fort Hood with a bomb in a backpack and weapons stashed in a motel room where he was arrested Wednesday, about 3 miles from the Texas Army base's main gate.
"Little did I know that when I first became a Muslim that I was going to learn what Islam meant to me and what I was willing to sacrifice for it," he wrote.
Abdo said life was better after he arrived at his first duty station, but that he studied Islam more closely as he neared deployment to learn "whether going to war was the right thing to do Islamically."
"I began to understand and believe that only God can give legitimacy to war and not humankind," he wrote. "That's when I realized my conscience would not allow me to deploy."

Crazy Woman Disrupts Flight from Philadelphia
A Roseville woman was arrested Wednesday at Philadelphia International Airport after allegedly making terroristic threats on a flight arriving from London.
According to Philadelphia news channel WPVI, Hannah Marie Shiner, of Roseville, allegedly threatened a flight attendant and passengers on board a U.S. Airways flight stating she was going to “blow up the aircraft.”
Sgt. R. Zurinsky with the Tinicum Township Police Department said the commotion carried out into the international terminal, where airport police detained Shiner around 4 p.m.
Zurinsky said Shiner, 59, was exhibiting threatening behavior toward passengers, shouting profanities and making numerous remarks in support of Osama bin Laden and the attacks of 9/11.
Airport police turned Shiner over to the Tinicum Township Police Department, since the international terminal is in that jurisdiction, Zurinsky said.
“There was no evidence of alcohol involved in this incident,” Zurinsky said. “I think she has issues that need to be addressed.”
Libyan Rebel Commander Assasinated
he commander of Libya's rebel army was killed in Benghazi along with two senior officers on Thursday, rebel leaders announced just hours after claiming big successes on the battlefield.This in quite interesting considering the west just released a whole pile of money to the rebels.
The death of Gen. Abdul Fattah Younis came after the rebels' Transitional National Council sought Younis for questioning about military matters and alleged ongoing ties to Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi, according to what Younis' supporters told journalist James Hider of the Times of London.
Hider described the events surrounding Younis' death as "extremely murky," but he said the rebel army appeared to be on the brink of a rift.

Breaking: U.S. Soldier Arrested Over Concerns of Possible Second Attack On Fort Hood (Bumped/Updated)(Rebumped)
FOX has the names of the three suspects but are withholding them at this time.
At least one U.S. military serviceman has been arrested after raising concerns over another possible attack on Fort Hood, Fox News has learned exclusively.Expect updates.
According to an Army source, one AWOL soldier is in the custody of the Killeen Police Department near Fort Hood. He was not captured on base. According to another source, two other U.S. soldiers were also arrested earlier today after authorities recovered weapons and explosives.[More..]
UPDATE: The AWOL soldier arrested was from Ft Campbell, Kentucky. We wonder if Howie's post yesterday, AWOL Muslim Soldier Objected to Fighting Muslims, is the same soldier.
UPDATE II: The AWOL soldier arrested was the same one Howie posted about.
Pvt. Nasser Jason Abdo, an AWOL soldier from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, was arrested by the Killeen Police Department near Fort Hood and remains in custody there. Authorities, however, will not say if Abdo is the one who raised security concernsUPDATE III: I'm listening to Jennifer Griffin and she stated police apparently found explosive materials in Abdo's backpack as well as jihadi material. The reason he was picked up was he was purchasing explosive materials and ammunition from several gun stores and the owners alerted the police.
Bob Jenkins, a Fort Campbell spokesman, told Fox News that Abdo was being investigated for child pornography found on his government computer.
Abdo went AWOL on July 4. On the eve of his first deployment to Afghanistan -- after only one year in the Army -- Abdo applied for conscientious objector status. It was denied by his superiors at Ft. Campbell but later overturned by the Assistant Deputy Secretary of the Army review board.[More..]
UPDATE IV: FOX updated the link:
Pvt. Nasser Jason Abdo, an AWOL soldier from Fort Campbell, Kentucky, was arrested by the Killeen Police Department near Fort Hood and remains in custody there. Authorities, however, will not say if Abdo is the one who raised security concerns.Arrested around 2 p.m. Wednesday? Maybe the reason the 2 others were arrested today? Hmmm, only time will tell.
Abdo was allegedly found with explosives and jihadist materials at the time of his arrest, a senior Army source confirms to Fox News. He was arrested at around 2 p.m. Wednesday after someone called authorities to report a suspicious individual.
Why Abdo said no to Afghanistan below fold
Update: Pajamas Media has more including video of Abdo being interviewed on CNN about his status objecting to fighting Muslims who kill Muslims and also on his Islamic faith.
Update by Howie: Jawa Report sources are telling us that one of the other persons of interest in this case is Zachari Klawonn.
Abdo promoted Klawonn on this personal FB page.
UPDATE by SH: "He was all ready to go"
Eric Vasys, a spokesman with the FBI's San Antonio Office, said authorities found firearms and bomb making components inside Abdo's motel room. Sources also say Abdo was attempting to make a purchase at Guns Galore in Killeen, the same ammunition store where Major Nidal Hasan purchased weapons that were allegedly used to gun down 13 people and wound 30 others on Nov. 5, 2009.Inshallahshaheed's (aka Samir Khan) fingerprints all over this through AQAP's Inspire rag...
Sources said Abdo had enough materials to make two bombs, including 18 pounds of sugar and six pounds of smokeless gunpowder -- a possible trigger for an explosive. A pressure cooker was also found.
"He was all ready to go," one law enforcement source said.
Another counterterrorism source said the bomb making materials and methodology came "straight out of Inspire magazine and an Al Qaeda explosives course manual."
UPDATE by RS: William Teach notices this interesting tidbit:
When he was arrested, Abdo was in possession of large quantities of ammunition, weapons and what appeared to be the makings of a bomb, according to early accounts from law enforcement. He had also apparently purchased an Army uniform with Fort Hood patches from a local surplus store."UPDATE by RS: Zuhdi Jasser chimes in:
"Abdo's obsession with Islamophobia is the same logic that drove the murderous rampage of Maj Nidal Hasan on Nov. 5, 2009 at Fort Hood," AIFD President and Navy veteran Zuhdi Jasser said in the statement. "Abdo's adherence to the global Islamist ideology above his American loyalty runs to the core of what we Muslims need to fight in real counterterrorism."Amen.
POS, the above is terrorist propaganda reinforcing the terrorist narrative that the US is the aggressor in a war against Muslims.
Fort Hood Suspect Hearts Bradley Manning (And Has Some Supporters)(bumped)
A message posted to a Facebook page dedicated to helping Pvt. Nasser Jason Abdo resist the Zionist-Crusader war of aggression against the Muslims. And by "Muslims" of course they mean the Taliban. The English is a little sketchy, but I think you get the point.
"O Muslim soldiers rise up and give it an attack is in your country, it would make us smile and forget a little pain in my heart."
Don't worry, the guy is in Indonesia which I'm told is a moderate country.
And besides American Yankee Zionist Imperialist killing the poor innocent Muslims in the Taliban, what else was Nasser Abdo concerned about? Bradley Manning, natch.
Traitors: they tend to think alike no matter what motivates them.
UPDATE: When I first went to post this I didn't notice that the guy supporting Abdo had just written it. But apparently this is in reaction to Abdo's arrest, not something he was encouraging Abdo to do before he began his plot.
NOTE TO HMF: Dude, email me.
UPDATE: Did I say Danny Manning? Ugh. Yeah, it's mah sport.
Sandcrawler PSA: al-Gore's Weathercast Way Way Off
NASA satellite data from the years 2000 through 2011 show the Earth's atmosphere is allowing far more heat to be released into space than alarmist computer models have predicted, reports a new study in the peer-reviewed science journal Remote Sensing. The study indicates far less future global warming will occur than United Nations computer models have predicted, and supports prior studies indicating increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide trap far less heat than alarmists have claimed.I bet that's not the result they had in mind when they approved that mission.
Study co-author Dr. Roy Spencer, a principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville and U.S. Science Team Leader for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer flying on NASA's Aqua satellite, reports that real-world data from NASA's Terra satellite contradict multiple assumptions fed into alarmist computer models.
According to a transcript, provided by Ruch's group, Ruch asked investigator Eric May, during questioning of Monnett in February, for specifics about the allegations. May replied: "well, scientific misconduct, basically, uh, wrong numbers, uh, miscalculations."
Monnett said that alleging scientific misconduct "suggests that we did something deliberately to deceive or to, to change it. Um, I sure don't see any indication of that in what you're asking me about."

Woman Get Jury Trial For Red Plastic "Door Knocker"
From WCSC TV:
BONNEAU, S.C. (WCSC) - A Bonneau woman wanted to make a statement, so she decorated her truck with a set of red plastic testicles. And now a jury gets to decide if she was exercising free speech or being just obscene.
Virginia Tice was given a $445 ticket July 5 that accuses her of violating the state's obscene bumper sticker law.
The South Carolina code of laws says "a sticker, decal or emblem is indecent when it describes, in a patently offensive way... sexual acts, excretory functions or parts of the human body."
[John] Caddell says he must interpret the law differently than Police Chief Fuda.
"My interpretation is they're talking about human body parts," says Caddell. "I don't think these are human body parts... it looks like a chrome plated door knocker."
Tice's attorney, Scott Bischoff, expects a trial next month and says his client is still angry with the incident.

The committee report says Al-Shabab had formed “alarming operational ties” with al-Qaeda and its Yemeni affiliate, al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP). It said American recruits had been trained by senior al-Qaeda operatives.Most of the Americans? What about the ones that can't be identified? Do they not count Rep Thompson?
“With Al-Shabab’s large cadre of American jihadis and unquestionable ties to al-Qaeda, particularly its alliance with AQAP, we must face the reality that Al-Shabab is a growing threat to our homeland,” Rep. King said.
But ranking committee member Bennie Thompson, a Mississippi Democrat, disagreed, saying Al-Shabab had never attacked the United States. “Al-Shabab does not appear to present any danger to this homeland.” He said most of the Americans who had joined the group would be identified and arrested upon their return.
Also Ahmed Hussen, president of the Canadian Somali Congress, testified Canada not refuting extremist ideologies
A U.S. Congressional committee on terrorist recruitment of American Muslims turned its attention north on Wednesday, as a prominent Somali-Canadian leader testified that Ottawa had failed to tackle the ideology of extremists.I suppose Rep Thompson disagreed with Ahmed Hussen too.
Ahmed Hussen, president of the Canadian Somali Congress, told U.S. lawmakers that the Canadian government was concentrating on detecting and arresting terror suspects while leaving their rhetoric unchallenged.
“The strategy of Canadian officials as they confront this phenomenon in my community has been to view this serious matter only through the prism of law enforcement,” he said. “There has not been a parallel attempt to counter the toxic anti-Western narrative that creates a culture of victimhood in the minds of members of our community.”
Norway mass murderer an equal opportunity plagiarist? So-called "manifesto" a cut-and-paste job
The 1500+ page "manifesto" that is alleged to have been written by Norwegian mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik has the Left and their establishment media allies doing circle jerks and kept them busy for the past few days checking the "manifesto" for names from their enemies list. But it appears to be a complete cut-and-paste job rather than the culmination of years of extensive study by the killer as has been repeatedly claimed by the media (NY Times, Washington Post, CNN, etc.) and the killer himself (in the first few pages of the "manifesto").
Even worse, if they had actually read his manifesto, rather than do a word search for targets taken from their enemies list, they would have discovered that most of this work is plagiarized and not his own work. Many of the links are already there. It's looking like the only element that is really truly his is the journal portion.
Scott Shane of the New York Times actually used this manifesto to accuse the usual suspects of helping to shape the "anti-Muslim" worldview of the killer, despite the fact that authorities have not even confirmed it was actually compiled by Breivik. And so far no one has really explained why despite this supposed raging anti-Muslim hatred that he was driven by, not a single victim of Breivik's killing spree was a Muslim (at least that I've seen reported so far). It is also interesting to note that Shane forgot to mention that the New York Times itself was cited as a source in the "manifesto". Is the Old Gray Lady also to blame for these cold-blooded murders?!?! But I digress...
Having reviewed the first 800 pages of this work, it is clear that virtually all of those sections were plagiarized from other works. I have found the sources for first ~350 pages so far and am working on tracking down the rest (which I will post here as an update).
The links to all of the sources Breivik plagiarized for the sections I've analyzed so far (through Section 2.5) are below the fold.
Less than 5% of what I have analyzed so far could possibly be original to the author of the work, and there's some internal evidence that this may have been a wikipedia-like product of multiple individuals including Breivik, such as directions to "feel free to complete this section". We'll find out more down the road.
In addition, CT expert Jarrett Brachman observed that later portions of the "manifesto" appear to be lifted wholesale from Unibomber Ted Kaczynski's 1995 manifesto with only "cultural Marxism" and "multiculturalism" replacing Kaczynski's terms. At least the Unibomber wrote his own material.
One law enforcement official I spoke with yesterday said the technical portions of the "manifesto" looks very familiar to various jihadist manuals, including "The Explosives Course" and Abu Musab Al-Suri's equally massive "The Call to Global Islamic Resistance". I'll be checking those sources to compare them with the "manifesto" (anyone who wants to check those sources and note any similarities in the comments would be greatly appreciated), but that would explain some commentary that Breivik's methodology mirrored that of Al-Qaeda's. It may literally be swiped from Al-Qaeda's playbooks.
Thus, this "manifesto", which even if it was the work of the killer, appears to be as representative of his worldview as a plagiarized term paper turned in by one of Rusty's students represents the deep thinking of a lazy college freshman trolling Wikipedia (which the "manifesto" also lifts heavily from).
But it's doubtful that the inconvenient fact that Breivik was an equal opportunity plagiarist pulling from "progressive" (Unibomber), conservative (Spencer, Steyn, et al.) and even possibly jihadist sources will change the views of the heavy-breathers at the New York Times, Washington Post, or Think Progress, because any facts which depart from the narrative that those on their enemies list are directly to blame for this grave tragedy will be quickly set aside; or used as even further proof to implicate their enemies ("See, they didn't just inform his worldview, they willingly allowed him to copy their worldview wholesale!" I assume the story will be spun). Needless to say, with this tragic incident there has been enough confirmation bias to go around on all sides.
So the claims made in the first few pages of the "manifesto" that this work represented three years of effort and hundreds of thousands of euros investment to complete are a flat-out lie. Most of this could have been compiled and edited in a day. But if you're a mass murderer, why not lie too?
But the unhinged response from the Left and the establishment media make it clear that they are willing to take wanton plagiarist and mass murderer Anders Breivik at his word if it allows them to grind their own political axes to collect the scalps of their perceived ideological enemies.
So here are the sources that Breivik and his possible collaborators for this manifesto plagiarized their material from:

Good News! Our Tax Dollars Going To Imprisoned Pali Terrorists
The money is either paid directly to the terrorist or the terrorist family.
The Palestinian Authority spends more than $5 million a month paying salaries to terrorists sitting in Israeli prisons, according to a Palestinian Media Watch report presented to congressmen in Washington on Tuesday.When in the hell is our government going to finally stop sending money to Palestine? Imagine the money we would save not funding terrorists..gawd.
According to the report, written by Itamar Marcus and Nan Jacques Zilberdik, such payments contravene US law, which prohibits funding of any person who “engages in, or has engaged in terrorist activity.
“The US funds the PA’s general budget,” the document reads. “Through the PA budget the US is paying the salaries of terrorist murderers in prison and funding the glorification and role modeling of terrorists.”[...]
According to the report, “A law signed and published in the official Palestinian Authority Registry in April 2011 puts all Palestinians and Israeli Arabs imprisoned in Israel for terror crimes on the PA payroll to receive a monthly salary from the PA.”
The report says this law “formalizes what has long been a PA practice.”
Those eligible for the payments, according to the report, are “anyone imprisoned in the occupation’s [Israel’s] prisons as a result of his participation in the struggle against the occupation.”

Illegal Alien, Jihad, & Obama Assassination Plot: This Story Has it All!
An illegal alien, a jihadi, and a would be Obama assassin walk into a bar. But I repeat myself:
An Uzbek man, who was living illegally in the U.S., was indicted Tuesday by a federal grand jury for allegedly making multiple threats to assassinate President Obama, then gaining possession of explosive material and a machine gun...Um, his student visa was revoked a year ago and it turns out that he's not only a jihad sympathizer but also wanted to kill the President?
He was residing at the Oak Mountain Lodge in Birmingham, according to a search warrant obtained by FoxNews.com. Authorities sought any information in his room regarding Obama, as well as sniper rifles, documents relating to assassinations and Jihadist manuals....
Kodoriov came to the United States in June 2009 and remained in the country on a student visa, according to the statement. His student visa was revoked April 1, 2010, for failure to enroll in school, according to the arrest affidavit.
You'd think we learned that lesson 10 years ago.
Is That Your Stump Or Are You Just Happy To Search Me?
A while back, I made a vow not to post any TSA articles. But this isn't about a TSA agent accused of improper conduct (despite the post headline, which is just meant to humour). This story is about a man being denied a position with the TSA:
After applying for the TSA job, Constantino passed an online exam and cleared a background check.
In an interview with two officials about seven months ago, Constantino's disability was never brought up, he said. Not once was he asked about his missing right hand or any limitations it might cause him. Constantino walked out of the interview thinking he had landed the job. All that stood in his way, he believed, was a routine medical exam.
But shortly after the exam, Constantino received an email from the TSA informing him of his "medical disqualification" because of the loss of his right hand.
For the record, I think if Michael is physically capable of performing his duties as a screener, and he is otherwise qualified, it is wrong to deny him this job.
Mountain Lion Killed in Connecticut
(Hartford, Connecticut) Last month, a 140-pound mountain lion was killed by a car on the Wilbur Cross Parkway in Milford. It was the first confirmed sighting of a cougar in the state since the 1880s.
Genetic testing revealed that the big cat came from a wild breeding population of about 250 mountain lions in the southwest corner of South Dakota, the Black Hills area, results released Tuesday afternoon revealed.Saw a news anchor bemoaning the "sad" story of the mountain lion. Well, excuse me. I sure don't see sadness and I don't want a dangerous predator in my neighborhood. Children, pets and joggers are at serious risk with one of these big cats in the vicinity.(More....)
No one knows why the animal — a lean, 140-pound male between 2 and 4 years old — undertook a journey across the continent. But its travels were documented through Minnesota and Wisconsin, and biologists speculate that the cat then wandered through southern Ontario and New York before reaching Connecticut.
Stormtrooper Helmet Maker Beats Lucasfilms
A British prop designer who makes replicas of the menacing Stormtrooper helmets featured in Star Wars films won a legal battle Wednesday against director George Lucas, who took him to the High Court in 2008 over copyright infringement.Seven year battle? Why my Master fended off Lucas' hordes of legal Ugnaughts with a single email.
The Supreme Court ruled that the replicas were not covered by copyright law because they were not works of art, the Press Association reported.
But the court also ruled that the director's copyright had been violated in the United States.
Judges said 62-year-old Andrew Ainsworth is free to continue making the helmets in his studio in Twickenham, southwest of London, although he cannot export them to the U.S.
"I am proud to report that in the English legal system David can prevail against Goliath if his cause is right," Ainsworth said in a statement. "If there is a force, then it has been with me these past five years."
Ainsworth, who made most of the helmets in the original Star Wars film uses original moulds and tools to make replicas for fans.
"We don't export to the US, so it doesn't affect us. We export everywhere else: Australia, Singapore -- we're looking at that side of the world," he said.
Such is the powah of the Dark Side!

NYT Columnist: Tea Party = Hezbollah
Alas, that is the Tea Party. It is so lacking in any aspiration for American greatness, so dominated by the narrowest visions for our country and so ignorant of the fact that it was not tax cuts that made America great but our unique public-private partnerships across the generations. If sane Republicans do not stand up to this Hezbollah faction in their midst, the Tea Party will take the G.O.P. on a suicide mission.
Equating the Tea Party with Hezbollah is like equating our great Sith Lords here at the Jawa Report with Jar Jar Binks. Its insulting. Almost. I think.
Good News! Indicted Al Shabaab Recruiter Continues Jihad On Facebook
Via Patrick Poole at PJM
As the House Homeland Security Committee prepares to hold hearings this week on the issue of radicalization in the Somali community, it is important to note the reach that the al-Shabaab terrorist group has into the United States. Earlier this month I reported exclusively here at PJM on a fresh set of al-Shabaab recruits from Minneapolis and Columbus, Ohio that were interviewed on their way to Somalia by award-winning Kenyan journalist Fatuma Noor. And in June, I broke the story about an al-Shabaab suicide bomber from Minneapolis — the second Somali suicide bomber from Minneapolis, and only the third recorded case of an American successfully carrying out a suicide bombing (all three were Somali-Americans).Lovely, just lovely.
Undoubtedly one of the issues that the Homeland Security Committee will be looking at is how more than two dozen young Somali-Americans, many of whom were good students coming from middle-class families, were recruited to travel overseas to join the global jihad. What will likely never be mentioned: how that recruitment continues unimpeded today.
Not only is the Minnesota mosque that has served as the “radicalization incubator” for many of these youths still churning out jihadist recruits, but one of al-Shabaab’s top recruiters continues his recruiting efforts openly on Facebook and has targeted hundreds of Somali high school and college students.
Cabdulaahi Faarah (Faarax), a naturalized U.S. citizen, has proven to be one of al-Shabaab’s most effective Western recruiters. Now residing in Mogadishu, he uses his Facebook page[image above from his FB..ed] to continue his recruiting efforts. In just the past week he has added more than 50 new friends — most of them in the U.S. — bringing the total number of his friends on Facebook to more than 500. His Facebook page was linked in a story by the Minneapolis Mirror following the June suicide bombing.[Continue reading...it gets worse]
Kandahar's Mayor Murdered by Taliban with Turban Bomb
Afghan insurgents appeared to continue their assassination campaign against key public figures on Wednesday with the killing of the mayor of Kandahar.Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit.
Ghulam Haider Hamidi was targeted by a suicide bomber who got into the municipality compound in Kandahar City with explosives concealed under his turban. The technique was first used earlier this month in a mosque in the city during a memorial service for Ahmed Wali Karzai, a regional strongman and half-brother of the president.
Abdul Manan, a municipality employee, said the mayor had emerged from his office into the garden, where he made a call on his mobile phone.
The assassin grabbed him and detonated the bomb.
"I rushed outside and saw the mayor was lying still on the ground," said Manan. "Another headless body was next to him and the mayor had deep wounds on his face and chest.''

Reporting from Washington—The economy and Oslo massacre has pushed this hearing off most everyones radar. Holder & Obama have some splainin to do..
The claim by senior ATF officials that none of the weapons lost in the botched Fast and Furious sting operation were used in the shooting of a Border Patrol agent is not supported by FBI ballistics tests, according to a copy of the FBI report on the shooting.
Last week, spokesmen Scot Thomasson and Drew Wade of the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives told The Times that the FBI had assured them that neither of the two Fast and Furious weapons found at the scene of Border Patrol Agent Brian A. Terry's death were the ones that killed the agent.
"We're not aware of any forensic evidence that would link these guns to the homicide," they said.
A copy of the FBI report obtained by The Times' Washington bureau shows ballistics tests did not rule out the Fast and Furious guns.
Rep Issa and Sen Grassley release staff report focusing on impact of Operation Fast and Furious on Mexico
Full report below fold:
ATF Officials in Mexico Denied Access to Information by U.S. Counterparts about Reckless Strategy that Allowed Guns to Fall Into the Hands of Mexican Drug Cartels
WASHINGTON – Findings in a second staff report released by Representative Darrell Issa and Senator Chuck Grassley show that ATF officials based in the United States Embassy in Mexico City were increasingly worried about the alarming rate of guns found in violent crimes in Mexico from a single ATF operation based out of the ATF's Phoenix Field Division. Issa is Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and Grassley is Ranking Member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
"The consequences of arming Mexican drug cartels seem obvious. But even guns turning up at crime scenes in Mexico wasn't enough for Justice Department officials to arrest straw purchasers and shut down their trafficking operations. Tragically, it wasn't until Fast and Furious guns were found at the murder scene of a Border Patrol Agent that Justice officials finally ended this reckless and arrogant effort," said Issa.
"It's incomprehensible that officials at the Justice Department, the ATF and the U.S. attorney's office would keep their counterparts at the U.S. embassy in Mexico City in the dark about Operation Fast and Furious. Keeping key details secret while straw purchasers continued buying weapons for gun traffickers jeopardized our relationship with our southern ally and put lives at risk," Grassley said.
The report released today outlines several important findings, including:• There was little to no information sharing from the Phoenix Field Division, ATF Headquarters and the Justice Department to their colleagues in Mexico City. Every time Mexico City officials asked about the mysterious investigation, their U.S. based ATF counterparts in Phoenix and Washington, D.C. continued to say they were "working on it" and "everything was under control."
• Lanny Breuer, the Assistant Attorney General for the Criminal Division at the Justice Department, was clearly aware of Operation Fast and Furious and touted the case during a visit to Mexico.
• ATF officials in Mexico City were incredulous that their agency would knowingly allow guns to fall into the hands of Mexican drug cartels, and they were incensed when they finally began to learn the full scope of Operation Fast and Furious and the investigative techniques used.
Issa and Grassley are leading a congressional inquiry into the ill-advised strategy known as Operation Fast and Furious.

Imperial Good News: Qaida al-Jihad Collapsing
See you can do it.
WAPO:U.S. counterterrorism officials are increasingly convinced that the killing of Osama bin Laden and the toll of seven years of CIA drone strikes have pushed alQaeda to the brink of collapse.Now we have to get our financial house in order. If we do so we will have defeated bin-Laden utterly. We can mop up the rest a bit at a time.
The assessment reflects a widespread view at the CIA and other agencies that a relatively small number of additional blows could effectively extinguish the Pakistan-based organization that carried out the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks — an outcome that was seen as a distant prospect for much of the past decade.
And best of luck to the Iraqi people, you are the great hope of the middle east and you have the influence and resources to be part of a positive change.

On Islamophobia and Right Wing Extremism
Since I am constantly accused of being an 'Islamaphobe' let me, once again and for the record, explain my position on Islam, Islamophobia, and right-wing extremism. I'll start at the latter and work my way to the former.
1) Right-wing extremism is real. A lot of people on the right don't want to admit this. I'm not sure why, but I think it goes something like, "I'm on the right, and if this guy is also on the right then, by association, it makes me look bad." So, they simply redefine "right" in such a way as to exclude whatever nutjob or extremist they don't want to be affiliated with.
It happens on the Left as well ... and with any other grouping, ideology, or movement. It's probably normal for people not to want to be associated with extremists so we find ways to make it seem that we have nothing in common with them.
But, by definition, an extremist has similarities with, say, moderates ... only they are more extreme. Like I said, that's kind of the definition of extremists.
Right wing extremists do exist. I think you'd have to be in a state of denial to claim otherwise.
And, as I've often noted, being a nutjob and being motivated by ideology are not mutual exclusive things. Hence, someone like Abdulhakim Muhammad -- the Little Rock shooter -- might very well be a nutcase, but it doesn't mean he wasn't also motivated by his belief that America is at war with Muslims.
Likewise, it seems rather obvious that Anders Behring Breivik is certifiably crazy. But it also seems obvious that he was motivated by his worldview that Muslims are at war with Europe.
Reading his meandering and incoherent manifesto it is clear that Breivik was on the right, and that he was an extremist.
His extremism doesn't discredit the right any more than an ecoterrorist's extremism discredits those concerned with the environment.
Extremists of all stripes exist, even on the right.
The real problem is that the word is often misused. That is, people with political motives use the word to try and discredit those they disagree with even if the word doesn't truly fit.
I was at a conference once where one well meaning academic suggested that we stop using the word "terrorist" to describe those we are at war with since the word often meant one thing to one group of people and another thing to another group of people. They call us "terrorists", we call them "terrorists" .... so let's just come up with another word since our side and their side can't agree on the matter.
I pointed out that the fact that although we might disagree on who was or wasn't an as*hole, this didn't mean that as*holes don't exist and therefore the term shouldn't be dropped from the lexicon.
Yes, there really are right-wing extremists. And, yes, Anders Behring Breivik was one of them.
2) Yes, Islamophobia (or something very much like it) does exist.
I've always hated the term 'Islamophobia'. It seems so .... imprecise. These people are irrationally afraid of .... Islam? I don't know about that. Perhaps Muslimophobe works better? It just seems to me that there could be a better term for the phenomenon.
Semantics aside, there are people who hate Muslims and who, like Breivik, believe there is a massive conspiracy by them to invade and conquer the West.
One need look no further than the comments section on this blog to meet some of these people. I don't spend any time policing the comments section. If someone wanted to donate, say in the neighborhood of $60-70k a year so I could quit my job and do that full time, I'd be open to the idea. I'd apologize for them but I've never been one to to feel guilty for the sins committed by other people.
But there really are people who hate Muslims. This is an undeniable fact. It's not something I really understood when I started blogging, but over the years and interacting with people in the comments I've realized this.
If we must settle on the term 'Islamophobe' to describe those that hate Muslims or who see a Muslim conspiracy behind every door then so be it. I don't like it but neither am I the sole proprietor of the English language.
The problem with the term is that it is used by many on the Left and by some Muslims to describe any one who disagrees with them.
That is, just like the term "right-wing extremist", Islamophobe has become the epitaph of choice for those who wish to discredit any criticism of Islamist ideology, movements, and in the extreme any one who is a Muslim.
If a political opponent is an Islamophobe then it immediately ends discussion because what rational person wants to dialogue with a hater or an extremist?
It's much like the term racist. We all know that racists exist, but we also all know that the term is probably used far more often than is accurate.
Obama is a terrible President. Racist!
So, it's not that Islamophobes don't exist -- they do -- it's just that the term is used so often and so inaccurately that it loses nearly all of its bite and much of its meaning.
Clearly Breivik was an Islamophobe. If he was one, then they must exist.
Who else is one? I'm not sure. Despite what some of my critics have said, I'm certainly not one. I don't hate Muslims. I don't fear them. I don't think they are secretly out to get me. I don't think there is a massive conspiracy by them to take over Europe or the US. I certainly don't think that we are at war with them.
As cheesy as this may sound, some of my best friends are Muslims. I have them over to my house a lot.
Which is why I don't like being called it. It's like being called a racist: I hate racists. So when you call me that I take great umbrage to it.
I point these out not to accuse others of being Islamophobic, but in suggesting that if I were an "Islamophobe" then I probably would not have supported the right of Muslims in NY to build the GZ Mosque. And if I were an "Islamophobe" then wouldn't I agree with the narrative that Salaafi jihadists -- embodied in the Taliban or al Qaeda -- are the "real" Muslims?
Sure, some people fear or hate Muslims. I am not one of them.
3) Islam isn't the problem, Islamism is.
Inasmuch as I've written hundreds of posts on Islamists and Islamism it's a bit tedious to have to do it one more time.
Islam is a system of beliefs -- a faith. Islamism is a political system in which there is no separation of church and state and religious law prevails. Islamists are those who believe in Islamism.
As a political matter I've got not problem with Islam or Muslims. If you want to pray five times a day, build a mosque in my neighborhood, and never know the delicious goodness of pork I really don't care.
It's only when you start demanding -- as a matter of legal requirement -- that I stop making fun of your prophet that your religion stops being a religion and quickly becomes a form of political fascism.
I'm not a Muslim so I am not in the business of deciding whether true Islam demands the implementation of sharia or not. Plenty of Muslims tell me that it doesn't. Others tell me it does. That's something for them to work out, not me.
But, if there is a reluctance on the part of many on the right to admit that there are right-wing extremists; and if there is a reluctance of many in the counter-jihad movement to admit that there are bigots who hate and fear Muslims; then it seems to me that any honest airing of the facts would require Muslims to acknowledge that they have a problem with extremists.
There are right wing extremists in the US, Europe, and elsewhere. Some of them commit acts of violence in the name of their political ideologies. However, I think one would be hard pressed to make the case that political violence from the right was anything approaching the political violence from Muslim extremists and Islamists.
A day doesn't go by in which Muslim extremists don't kill. Not a single day.
The worldwide body count is enormous. To think that the danger posed from right wing extremism is on par with Islamic extremism takes a willful act of ignorance or deception.
And the overwhelming majority of the victims of this extremism are Muslims.
Around the world Muslims who are killed for political reasons (that is, not counting ordinary murders) are far more likely to be killed by Muslim extremists than by right wing extremists or so-called Islamophobes.
Which makes the calls to end Islamophobia by Muslim majority countries that much harder to swallow. They'd save far more lives if they focused on fighting extremism and Islamism within their own countries
It's not just violence that we have to fear from Islamists. Most Islamists are so-called 'moderates' who reject the calls for violence as a means of adopting the sharia. Islamism itself is antithetical to human rights and incompatible with freedom.
I don't fear an Islamist takeover of the US. I fear an Islamist takeover in Muslim countries. Not because Hamas ruling in Gaza or The Muslim Brotherhood ruling in Egypt threatens my liberty. But because I want people in those countries to enjoy the fundamental human rights that I enjoy. Such as the right to change your religion if you want without fear of legal consequences. Or the right to criticize some of the crazy beliefs of a religion. Neither of which is allowed under traditional interpretations of Islamic law.
I'm not sure how to end this post, so let me just end here and challenge my colleagues on the right to own up to the fact that extremists on our side of the political spectrum exist and that sometimes this extremism manifests itself as political violence. Let me also challenge my colleagues in the counter-jihad movement to admit that there really are Muslim haters out there who might be called 'Islamophobes'. But let me also equally challenge Muslims to own up to the fact that the vast majority of terrorism in the world is committed by Muslims and that extremist views and Islamist sentiments are far too common among them.
Report:Wife of American Leader of Somali Terror Group Captured
Let me restate the headline: One of the wives of an American leader of Somalia's al Qaeda linked al Shabaab, the Alabama born Omar Hammami, has been captured.
Yeah, he has more than one wife. This wife is a Canadian citizen and, if the reports are true, she's already being interrogated by the CIA:
report from Somaliland’s capital Hargeysa confirmed that the 23 years old women which the Somaliland security forces handed over to intelligent forces from undiscovered western country was described as the wife of the Awful Alshabab commander Abu Mansoor Al Amriki.It's hard to tell the extent to which the story is true. My understanding is that Omar's Canadian wife left him and divorced him. But maybe there's more than one Canadian wife? It's so hard to tell with pimptastic studmuffins like Omar.
According to Somaliland intelligent sources that talked to Wagacusub.com media on condition of anonymity confirmed that, the arrested woman was Ayan Abdulahi Jama, who is the wife of Omar Shafik Hammahi, America born Syrian origin, who is a commander of Alshabab militants in Somalia.
Did I mention Omar was from Alabama?
Hamas Murders Two Muslims
The MSM are all calling the deaths executions. I call it murder:
The Hamas rulers of the Gaza Strip have executed two Palestinians convicted of spying for Israel....Let's give these guys a state! Oh, wait, we kinda already did and this is what we got.
The two men had appealed their convictions but lost the appeal.
Hamas has now executed three Gazans this year for spying for Israel.

Rep. King Discusses His Third Hearing On The Radicalization Of The Muslim American Community
Despite the Norway killings, Representative Peter T. King, the New York Republican who is chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, said he had no plans to broaden contentious hearings about the radicalization of Muslim Americans and would hold the third one as planned on Wednesday. He said his committee focused on terrorist threats with foreign ties and suggested that the Judiciary Committee might be more appropriate for looking at non-Muslim threats.The Norway massacre doesn't let al-Shabaab recruitment in the US off the hook. It's real, it's happening and not only with Somali Americans (although it is more prevalent there). Think Abu Talha Al Amrikee (aka Zachary Chesser) for one. He was willing to use his young child as cover to fly out of the US to join them.
AGAIN! (Bumped - Taliban Uses Boy To Test 'Bottle Mine')
Obama's peace partners - The Taliban hang an 8 year-old boy.
Little more than a year ago, they hung a 7 year-old for 'spying.'
Remember, the Taliban practice a very pure form of Islam, literally as Muhammad taught.
More at Gateway Pundit.
Update: Michael Yon has more information about the little boy who was hanged last week. It is being reported - and images of the boy's body seem to confirmed it - the Taliban gouged out his eyes before strangling him. Graphic photos are link in Yon's post.
Further, the Taliban have once again proven themselves the lowest form of filth upon this earth. This time, they forced a 6 year-old to step on a IED to test it.
Again, these reminders are most important - Obama wants to negotiate a peace agreements with these savages and the Taliban are among the most pure and pious of Muslims, practicing Islam the way Muhammad taught it through his own words and conduct.
Hand in Hand...
Evil US invaders being mean to these children!
Ahhhh, our finest and bravest care about these children. Taliban/alQaeda only want to recruit them for suicide bombers..
God Bless our troops!

Darwin Award: an honor bestowed upon those who improve the human species by accidentally removing themselves from the gene pool.
Certainly an additional award should go to this man, who not only improved the human gene pool by removing himself, but also taking out his own children:
AN al-Qaeda militant has been killed together with his two children when a car bomb he was making at his home exploded near the northern Iraq city of Kirkuk, police said.
Hamdani had been in detention on suspicion of terrorism, but was recently released due to "insufficient evidence against him," the official said.
Breivik's Lawyer: My Client is Batshit Crazy
OSLO, Norway - Anders Behring Breivik's defense lawyer said today that Breivik is not aware of the death toll or the public response to attacks that left 76 people dead, and the whole case suggests his client is insane.
Geir Lippestad did not say whether he would seek an insanity defense for Breivik, but told The Associated Press that his client's actions were absurd and horrible.
Geir Lippestad also told reporters Tuesday that Breivik took drugs to be "strong, efficient, awake." Lippestad says Breivik's family has not asked to see him and that he thinks the client believes his "operation" is going according to plan.

Random CT Lesson from Norway #2: Carry Weapons
The jihadis exploit our Constitution against us. So it's no surprise that a right-wing psychopath would exploit lefty anti-gun hysteria to further his irrational and evil plans:
Whether Officer Berntsen tried to stop the gunman is still being debated. But facing a man carrying multiple guns and ample ammunition, there was little he could do. Like most other police officers here, he had no weapon.We have much more gun violence here, but an atrocity of this scale is unthinkable in the US. Even if there were no feckless and unarmed police around had this asshole tried this anywhere in my neck of the woods he would have found a well armed citizenry ready to protect themselves and their children.
By law, Norwegian police officers must have authorization from their chief to gain access to a firearm, but they have rarely needed to ask, until recently.
It's tragically ironic that this nutjob correctly identified and then exploited the socialist faith in the state taking care of all of the citizens' needs -- including the essential function of defending against evil, which many in Europe have ceded entirely to their limp-wrested governments.
In Defense of Will McCants; Or, why the MSM is just as lazy as the rest of us
Just a note on the minor controversy surrounding Will McCants and his Jihadica website. It was McCants who first noted that a user at the Shamikh forum was claiming responsibility for the Norway attack on behalf of The Helpers of the Global Jihad. The claim was widely reported in the MSM.
But just to show you how lazy these people are, McCants posted pretty quickly after the initial report that the same user had recanted his earlier claim and was now advising his fellow eHadis to wait for an official announcement. Now, I knew this because when I bothered to look at the original source.
I, a lazy part time blogger, was able to check the original source of the story and realized that the report was wrong. The MSM kept reporting this for hours, many of them citing each other and earlier MSM stories as the source of the report. This is just lazy journalism. These people claim the journalistic high ground viz-a-viz bloggers and employ full time fact checkers who, apparently, can't be bothered to actually check any facts.
In any event it wasn't McCants' fault that some idiot on the forums took credit, he was just reporting on what the guy said. Had any one in the MSM bothered to actually check the source they would have known this and would have pulled the initial reports.
If Hamas ran Oakland...
A Random CT Lesson from the Norway Massacre
One man acting alone has the capability of murdering a lot of innocent people.
The next time we are told not to worry because this or that plot was the work of a lone nut and not part of some larger cell think about what this lone nut was capable of doing. In Mumbai it took 10 men two days to kill 166 people. In Norway one lone terrorist killed 76 people in only three hours.
We have to take lone nuts seriously, even if it is harder to detect them.
Breaking: Little Rock Jihadi, Abdulhakim Muhammad, Gets Life of Cornholing Without Parole
In order to avoid the death penalty Abdulhakim Muhammad (aka Carlos Bledsoe) plead guilty to capital murder.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A man who confessed to shooting two soldiers outside a military recruiting station in Arkansas has pleaded guilty and received a sentence of life in prison without parole.Not a very brave mujahid, is he?
Abdulhakim Muhammad pleaded guilty to capital murder in the middle of his trial Monday. Prosecutors took the death penalty off the table in return for Muhammad's plea.[ More]
Abdulhakim Muhammad frequently confessed committing the attack that he said was fueled by U.S. actions against Islam in the Middle East. But Pulaski County Prosecutor Larry Jegley said Muhammad on Monday approached the state for the first time about a possible plea deal.That's a lot of cornholing..heh.
The Tennessee native received a sentence of life in prison with no chance of parole on the capital murder count and life on the other counts, 12 in all, to be served consecutively.
Pulaski County Circuit Judge Herb Wright also sentenced him to 15 years in prison for each firearm enhancement count.
Jegley said prosecutors were ready to go forward with the case when the plea deal began developing Monday morning.
"Ultimately any plea resolution has to be OK with the victim and the victim's family," he said after the hearing. "The Long family is merciful beyond description. And they showed mercy to Muhammad. Muhammad showed no mercy to the victims whatsoever."
Finally: "300" Author Brings Us a Superhero to Kick al Qaeda's Ass
Just in case it wasn't clear where Frank Miller's loyalties lay he brings us a new graphic novel "Holy Terror" where his superhero "The Fixer" lives out our collective fantasies of killing Islamist jihadis. Miller describes the book as a "piece of propaganda" in the same sense that Superman fighting the Nazis during WWII was also propaganda.
Here's a video trailor for the book which is set to be released around the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
The only regret is that it took Miller this long to finish the project. It would have been more helpful, say, seven or eight years ago.
I'd say I can't wait until the movie comes out but, come on, does any one think that Hollywood has the gonads to produce something like this?
Thanks to Rafael.

King Announces Witnesses for Third Radicalization Hearing on Wednesday(LWJ's Thomas Joscelyn Is Among Them)
I'm happy to see Long War Journal's Thomas Joscelyn as one of the witnesses!
July 24, 2011
List Includes Ahmed Hussen, William Anders Folk and Thomas Joscelyn
Washington, D.C. (Sunday, July 24, 2011) – Today, U.S. Rep. Peter T. King (R-NY), Chairman of the Committee on Homeland Security, announced the names of the witnesses he will call to testify this Wednesday at the third in the series of hearings on radicalization of the Muslim-American community.
The hearing, entitled “ Al Shabaab: Recruitment and Radicalization within the Muslim American Community and the Threat to the Homeland,” will take place at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, July 27th, in 311 Cannon House Office Building.
The witnesses King will call at the hearing are:
• Mr. Ahmed Hussen is a member of the Canadian government’s Cross Cultural Roundtable on Security and has distinguished himself as one of North America’s most prominent and respected Somali community activists and East Africa security and governance analysts. He is National President of the Canadian Somali Congress.
William Anders Folk
• Mr. William Anders Folk is a former Assistant United States Attorney for the District of Minnesota. In his capacity as a federal prosecutor, he was the lead prosecutor on more than a dozen high-profile al Shabaab terrorism cases originating in the Minneapolis area and represented his office on the Minneapolis Joint Terrorism Task Force. Prior to his work as a federal prosecutor, Folk served as JAG officer in the U.S. Marine Corps.
• Mr. Thomas Joscelyn is a Senior Fellow and Executive Director of the Center for Law and Counterterrorism at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies. As a result of his extensive research and writings, he has distinguished himself as a leading terrorism expert focusing on how al Qaeda and other terrorist organizations operate around the world. Joscelyn is senior editor of The Long War Journal. [Yeah!..ed]
Statement by Rep Peter King:
Chairman King on the hearing:Continued below fold:
“In our first two hearings, the Committee has examined radicalization of Muslim-Americans generally and focused on the problem of radicalization in U.S. prisons.I look forward to the hearing.
“At this hearing, the third in a series, we will examine Somalia-based terrorist organization al Shabaab’s ongoing recruitment, radicalization, and training of young Muslim-Americans and al Shabaab’s linking up with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP).
“In Minnesota, Ohio, and other states, dozens of young Muslim males have been recruited, radicalized, and then taken from their communities for overseas terrorist training by al Shabaab. In a number of cases, the men – including both Somali-Americans and other converts -- have carried out suicide bombings or have otherwise been killed, often without their families even knowing where their sons have gone. There has not been sufficient cooperation from mosque leaders. In at least one instance, a Minnesota imam told the desperate family of a missing young man not to cooperate with the FBI
“There are growing concerns that al Shabaab in Somalia is linking up with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) in Yemen to better train these radicalized young men in order to attack Americans around the world, as well as launch attacks against our homeland.
“This coordinated and ongoing recruitment and radicalization of young Muslim men in the U.S. is a serious and growing threat to our homeland security and simply cannot be ignored.”
Norway Massacre: Anders Breivik Behring Court Appearance (Claimed 2 Active Cells/Belonged to Swedish Nazi Forum)
The killer wanted an open hearing to spout his bs. Luckily, that was denied.
OSLO - Anders Breivik Behring, suspected of the bombing and shooting in Norway on Friday, the next eight weeks on remand. He will be detained in solitary confinement[...]Update II: Thought I would throw this in here:
Breivik acknowledged to the judge that he is responsible for the shooting on the island Utoya and the bombing of government buildings in Oslo, but still pleaded his innocence. He called his actions''rather necessary ".
Breivik claimed during the hearing to be part of an organization whose two active cells. The declaration of the shooter being investigated by the police. Until now it was assumed that Breivik acted alone, but his statement in court is perpendicular. Judge Kim Heger had to know this in a press statement after the session.
"Greater respect"? Gawd.. (h/t @TheMarco).
Begin rest of original post:
It should be noted, he didn't approve of the EDL because they weren't radical enough. They weren't naive and not willing to kill people...
He also wrote he would link up with Nazis and jihadists if the end justified the means. In order to prove he and others weren't from the FBI/CIA type he stated the 'Knights Templar' should be willing to cut off their penis/balls to show their loyalty to the Nazis/jihadist. He stated a medical professional would be available to do that so as not to cause infections, etc.
Apparently he was a member on a Swedish Nazi forum. So the above makes sense.
It has emerged that the man at the centre of the attack is also a member of a Swedish Nazi forum which encourages attacks on government buildings.Evil basta*d!
The revelations were revealed by Swedish newspaper Expo who claim Anders Breivik is part of 'Nordisk' which has 22,000 members and focuses on political terrorism.
UPDATE: As for him being a Christian, in his own words (h/t Mean Kitteh):
"Q: Are you a religious man, and should science take priority over the teachings of the Bible?A:
My parents, being rather secular wanted to give me the choice in regards to religion.At the age of 15 I chose to be baptised and confirmed in the Norwegian State Church. I consider myself to be 100% Christian. However, I strongly object to the current suicidal path of the Catholic Church but especially the Protestant Church. I support a Church that believes in self defence and who are willing to fight for its principles and values, at least resist the efforts put forth to exterminate it gradually. The Catholic and Protestant Church are both cheering their own annihilation considering the fact that they embrace the ongoing inter-faith dialogue and the appeasement of Islam. The current Church elite hasshown its suicidal face, as vividly demonstrated last year by the archbishop of Canterbury's speech contemplating the legitimacy of Shariah in parts of Britain.I trust that the future leadership of a European cultural conservative hegemony in Europe will ensure that the current Church leadership are replaced and the systems somewhat reformed. We must have a Church leadership who supports a future Crusade with the intention of liberating the Balkans, Anatolia and creating three Christian states in the Middle East. Efforts should be made to facilitate the de-construction of the Protestan tChurch whose members should convert back to Catholicism. The Protestant Church hadan important role once but its original goals have been accomplished and have contributed to reform the Catholic Church as well. Europe should have a united Church lead by a just and non-suicidal Pope who is willing to fight for the security of his subjects,especially in regards to Islamic atrocities.I fully support that the Church gains more or less monopoly on religion in Europe(government policies, school curriculum etc at least) in addition to granting the Churchseveral concessions which have been taken from them the last decades. As for the Church and science, it is essential that science takes an undisputed precedence over biblical teachings. Europe has always been the cradle of science and it must always continue to be that way.
Regarding my personal relationship with God, I guess I’m not an excessively religious man. I am first and foremost a man of logic. However, I am a supporter of amonocultural Christian Europe.
Also, Wikileaks files show Norway was complacent about terror attacks "It wouldn't happen there" type of attitude.

Ministry of Irony: US Funds Taliban
A year-long military-led investigation has concluded that U.S. taxpayer money has been indirectly funneled to the Taliban under a $2.16 billion transportation contract that the United States has funded in part to promote Afghan businesses.And the good news it was only 3.3 million out of 7 or 8. So that 's only a 50 cent per dollar fraud rate on the part that was tracked. No word on what happened to the other 2.2 billion. But if you assume its rate was similar or even somewhat less that'S hundreds of millions of dollars.
The military summary included several case studies in which money was traced from the U.S. Treasury through a labyrinth of subcontractors and power brokers. In one, investigators followed a $7.4 million payment to one of the eight companies, which in turn paid a subcontractor, who hired other subcontractors to supply trucks.
The trucking subcontractors then made deposits into an Afghan National Police commander’s account, already swollen with payments from other subcontractors, in exchange for guarantees of safe passage for the convoys. Intelligence officials traced $3.3 million, withdrawn in 27 transactions from the commander’s account, that was transferred to insurgents in the form of weapons, explosives and cash.

Norway Shooter Copied Unabombers Manifesto
The site Document.no as Sunday reveals that some of Anders Behring Breivik's book, called "2083 - A European Declaration of Independence," is straight out of the so-called Unabomber manifesto.So, the "Nordic Hero/Saviour" (he thinks of himself that way):[h/t Mean Kitteh]
by Theodore John Kaczynski
While Breivik several places in the text is careful to cite external sources, not Theodore Kaczynski - known as the Unabomber - said a word.[...]
Some online newspapers have already compared Kaczynskis manifest with the 1,511-page document Breivik posted on the Internet shortly before the terrorist attack
Now it turns out that the Northern man simply copied large parts of the text.
But where Kaczynski reviews the enemy as "leftism" and "leftist," Breivik use the words "Multiculturalism" and "Cultural Communism."[More..]
I will always know that I am perhaps the biggest champion of cultural conservatism, Europe has ever witnessed since 1950. I am one of many destroyers of cultural Marxism and as such; a hero of Europe, a savior of our people and of European Christendom – by default. A perfect example which should be copied, applauded and celebrated. The Perfect Knight I have always strived to be. A Justiciar Knight is a destroyer of multiculturalism, and as such; a destroyer of evil and a bringer of light. I will know that I did everything I could to stop and reverse the Europeancultural and demographical genocide and end and reverse the Islamisation of EuropePlagiarized the Unabombers manifesto.
He wanted fame, as the Unabomber did, and is probably the only reason he released the manifesto and published the video. It apparently wasn't enough for him to go and kill a bunch of people, he wanted to rub it in.
He is a cold blooded killer plagiarizing another killers manifesto.
UPDATE: Breivik figured he would be a martyr and NOT live:
As for girlfriends; I do get the occasional lead, or the occasional girl making a move, especially now a day as I’m fit like hell and feel great. But I’m trying to avoid relationships as it would only complicate my plans and it may jeopardize my operation. And I don’t feel comfortable manipulating girls any more into one night stands. I am not that person any more. I did screw two girls in Prague though, but that was mainly because it was a realistic chance that I would end up dead during the process of establishing a weapons connection. I won’t make any effort to try to completely justify it though. Human males are imperfect by default as they are plagued by their biological needs.Previous:
Nevertheless, screwing around outside of marriage is after all a relatively small sin compared to the huge amounts of grace I am about to generate with my martyrdom operation. And it is essential that you do what is required to keep moral and motivation at a high level; especially, just prior to operation critical moments. I have reserved 2000 Euro from my operations budget which I intend to spend on a high quality model escort girl 1 week prior to execution of the mission. I will probably arrange that just before or after I attend my final martyrs mass in Frogner Church. It will contribute to ease my mind as I imagine I will get tense and very nervous. It is easier to face death if you know you are biologically, mentally and spiritually at ease

Norway Shooter's 1500 Page Manifesto (Update-Manifesto "The Movie")
This is purported to be a manifesto by Anders Behring Breivik, translated to English and posted by Doug Saunders. In it, Breivik discusses his views on multiculturalism, political correctness, Islam among other things.
It is a disturbing insight into the mind of a political terrorist.
UPDATE by SH: FNC
Lippestad Saturday told Norway's NRK television network that his client had "admitted responsibility" for Friday's attacks.UPDATE by SH: Knights Templar 2083-Movie Trailer by the shooter/terrorist. Follows some of the lines of his manifesto, all of it isn't there. Notice "brothers, are you ready to be martyrs"? God help us if there are more like him, a cold blooded premeditated killer.
"He explained that it was cruel but that he had to go through with these acts," Lippestad said, according to AFP, adding that the attacks were "apparently planned over a long period of time".
He said his client would explain himself in court Monday when he was arraigned, the BBC reported. The court would determine if police could continue to hold him, the report said.
According to a 1500-page manifesto apparently written by Breivik, he had been planning the operation since at least autumn 2009.

**** UPDATES AT BOTTOM OF POST *******PLEASE LEAVE TIPS AT END OF COMMENTS THREAD***
Just saw a banner on MSNBC: Expect updates.
It remains unclear what caused the blast or if it was a terrorism attack. The Prime Minister was reported to be safe.
The cause of the blast was unknown but the tangled wreckage of a car was outside one building. Police and fire officials declined to comment on the cause.
Injured people were seen lying on the street in pools of blood.
The 17-storey building, which also houses Norway's biggest tabloid newspaper VG, was reported to be on fire, with thick black smoke being seen for miles.
Witnesses reported the massive blast blew out most windows in the building as well as nearby government departments including the oil ministry, in Norway’s capital and most populated city.
The blast, which occurred just after lunch on Friday, left at least a dozen people
"I see that some windows of the VG building and the government headquarters have been broken,” one witness told public radio NRK.
“Some people covered with blood are lying in the street.”
CNN: Is reporting that a second explosion took place after the first one, this is a hallmark of al-Qaeda attacks, multiple bombs set to kill and maim responders and onlookers from the first attack.
It can be heard here in this video at 9:21.
Live stream from the scene here.[no English translation]
[UPDATE by SH: Oslo explosion result of massive VBIED]
One person is reported dead and many injured at this time.
Michelle Malkin has much more here, including that Norway took action this week against a leader of Ansar al-Islam, a terrorist insurgent group in Iraq made up of former Baathists and Islamists. The group was once known as Ansar al-Sunnah and was responsible for many attacks, the murder of thousands if Iraqis as well as many snuff videos. To describe them as Kurdish is not untrue, its does operate in Kurdish areas, but it was active in the whole of the Sunni areas of north and central Iraq and was not exclusively Kurdish. And not the type of Kurd who from who we gained so much support, Describing them as Kurds is like describing Saddam as a "Kurd".
Also of note Ansar al-Islam was also allied with al-Qaeda umbrella group The Islamic State of Iraq which sought to unite all the Sunni insurgent groups under one flag until the death of its leader Abu Omar al-Bahgdadi and also AQI's last leader al-Masri.
More details. The targets were the Prime Minister’s office and an Oil Ministry building, which remains on fire.UPDATE by SH: This on twitter, trying to find link to confirm:
FYI: Yes, there is a militant Muslim presence in Oslo. See this.
Also: Norway’s Muslim rapist problem.
And this: Mullah Krekar claims Islam will win.
And this looks like a good excuse for a jihadi bombing, doesn’t it:A Norwegian prosecutor has filed terror charges against an Iraqi-born cleric for threatening Norwegian politicians with death if he’s deported from the Nordic country.
The indictment, obtained by The Associated Press on Tuesday, centers on statements that Mullah Krekar — the founder of the Kurdish Islamist group Ansar al-Islam — made to various media, including American network NBC.

DEVELOPING:A powerful bomb tore into the heart of Norway on Friday, killing at least two people and injuring 15 as it ripped open buildings including the prime minister's office. It was the deadliest bombing since World War II in Oslo, normally associated with the Nobel Peace Prize that is awarded there.Live updates at Telegraph
Elsewhere, a gunman dressed in a police uniform opened fire at a Labor Party youth camp at Utoya, an island outside Oslo, on Friday, shooting several youths, party spokesman Per Gunnar Dahl told The Associated Press. He said unconfirmed reports said five people were hit as panicked youth tried to escape the island swimming.
17.39 AFP is reporting that Jens Stoltenberg, the prime minister, had at one point been scheduled to attend the event on Utoya Island (the rally was for his Labour party), but he did not go for some reason.OMG. Image where the summer camp is located
17.33 People are reportedly phoning from Utoya saying they are benig shot at. Multiple ambulances being sent to the site. The alleged shooter was dressed as a police officer. He travelled on a boat to the island in the uniform and when he arrived he started shooting with a handgun, according to reports. Unconfirmed reports of four dead.
17.31 Andrew Ward, the Financial Times' correspondent in Stockholm has more in the attack on Utoya. The event was being attended by up to 700 youths aged 14-25 attending the camp. Eyewitnesses are hearing "many, many, many" gunshots.
Tweet from Mira Boneva: ""Based on what I've seen,the innermost 4 people are shot and killed.Now it's complete panic and we swim off to get to safety" #Utøya #Norway"
Police have arrested one person after the shooting in the AUF-camp on Utøya outside Oslo. More young people are shot[...]UPDATE by SH..again: PostChronicle
- It's a political summer camp held there, and with what has happened in Oslo today, it is reasonable to believe that there is a connection. There is a theory we now work out from, he says to NRK.no.
Police have not yet know how many were injured after they should have shot wildly around him. Witnesses told NRK that between five and to persons to be killed, but this is not confirmed.
So far, more than 20 ambulances and four air ambulances sent to Utøya. Ten of these were requisitioned from London just after the clock 19
- More weapons
A witness said that it was used both shotguns, handguns and automatic weapons.
Will McCants has reported that the Ansar al-Jihad al-Alami (Helpers of Global Jihad) are claiming responsibilty attacks. So why did they attack? McCants says that it was because of the occupation of Afghanistan and the insults to the Prophet Mohammed. The Telegraph reported that This information "has come from via Shmukh [alQaeda forum...ed]....Innocents have died, and for what? a F**king cartoon? Gawd
UPDATE by RS: The group has recanted on the forums. They say that they are praising the bombing and shooting, not claiming responsibility.
The same group similarly praised the Helskinki, Finland bombings in June.
UPDATE by RS: Fjordman reports at Gates of Vienna that, "The shooter at Utøya is consistently described as tall and very Nordic-looking." Convert?
UPDATE by RS: Meanwhile, Britain's Anjem Choudary naturally blames the victims:
Thanks to StarCMC.
UPDATE by RS: The latest reports are that seven are dead. It could be many more. Witnesses at the children's camp are claiming up to 30 shot.
UPDATE by RS: Just a couple of notes.
1) It was just this week that Norway FINALLY indicted the leader of the terrorist organization Ansar al-Islam, Mullah Krekar. Krekar has been holed up in Oslo for years and the government there has refused to extradite him to Iraq where he is wanted for inciting mass murder.
While the Muhammad cartoons are always first and foremost on everyone's mind, it should be remembered that Mullah Krekar is a big name in the underground jihad community.
2) There is a reason we've had a Terror: Scandinavia section at The Jawa Report for many years now. Those archives go back as far as 2006 and the oldest post is a terror threat against Norway. Scandinavia's liberal asylum laws mean that there are major Muslim communities, many of them rife with Islamists who sought asylum from secular tyrants. People like Mullah Krekar who is an avowed supporter of al Qaeda but who fled Iraq during the Saddam era.
UPDATE by RS: Death toll climbs to 11.
UPDATE by RS: The police claim the bombing and shooting were related. At least one man is in custody.
UPDATE by RS: An eye witness reports that he saw someone dressed up like a police officer get out of the car that would later explode. So, this means that the bomber and the shooter could be the same person.
It also seems like the suspect in question was Nordic. At least, that is the buzz at Leftwing and Muslim sites which are claiming the suspect's looks as evidence that this was a right-wing attack against the ruling Socialist party in Norway. Which would make this Norway's OKC bombing and not Norway's 9/11.
But I would caution them that Muslim isn't a race and Islamist extremists come in all colors.
And if the Emerson Begolly case teaches us anything it is that white supremest and supporter of jihad are not mutually exclusive categories.
UPDATE by RS: The shooter is definitely Norwegian, says the government at a press conference broadcast on CNN International. I'm watching it live here.
So, this is either Norway's 9/11 ... or it's Norway's OKC.
UPDATE: 17 dead and that number keeps rising.
UPDATE: ON CNN International the police in Norway now confirm that unexploded bombs have been found on Utoya island. The shooter wanted to kill more kids. Thank God that the bombs didn't go off.
UPDATE: Police confirming that he's a 32 year old Norwegian who speaks with an Oslo accent.
UPDATE by SH: Perp identified as Anders Behring Breivik
The 32-year-old Norwegian man arrested for gunning down children on the holiday island of Utoya has been named locally as Anders Behring Breivik.Update: We're just sitting here reading the Daily Mail's bio on the killer and quite frankly, we're not sure about the motive?
Described as 6ft tall and blond, he is reported to have arrived on the island of Utoya and opened fire after beckoning several young people over in his native Norwegian tongue.
Reports suggest he was also seen loitering around the site of the bomb blast in Oslo two hours before the island incident - and also before the capital's explosion.
The man's bio includes items such as he is a Christian, we can say that his FB and Twitter accounts appear to be brand new, within the last week. Only one tweet. There was some considerable effort on the FB profile though.
There is really no post history to check on those accounts in order to learn something about his motives. Only a profile to tell you whatever the killer wanted to present.
We've heard some chatter about his religion. As a Christian I have to say I condemn his actions in the strongest terms. In fact the only praise I've seen of the attacks were not by Christians. This is cold blooded murder and no true follower of Christ could do such a thing.
We pray for the victims, their families and for those who are injured to recover.
UPDATE by SH: Death toll tops 87. 7 at Oslo and 80 at the camp on Utoya island Remember, it's still early so we won't know exactly how many were murdered by this ba**ard.
I was reading some of his posts on Morgenbladet.no(sp?)[need google translate]. Don't see much of anything that would really stand out. Also, apparently he had another Facebook account and closed it before opening his current one. He only posted videos and only 2 days of posts-17th and 18th. The Facebook page is gone now and only his twitter remains.
Document.no[need Google translate] has posted all his comments due to their name showing up in so many news articles.
7/23 UPDATE by SH: The death toll at the camp has risen to 85 but police caution more could be in the lake. Police have sent divers in search of more bodies Also, the shooter/terrorist bought 6 tons of fertilizer. The amount was too large for one vehicle and police stated 2 burned out vehicles where found at the scene of the carnage.
The shooter/terrorist wants to explain why he did it. Yes, why did you do it [Christian[so called]/fundamentalist/nationalist arsehole? Jihadi are praising your actions, is that what you wanted? You are no better than Timothy McVeigh, al-Qaeda, Taliban, al-Shabaab, etc. He/they killed/kill innocents and so have you!
Our thoughts and prayers are with those that are suffering due to this animals actions.
UPDATE by SH: Witnesses at camp suggest second shooter involved
NTB is reporting Saturday that witnesses told police two people were involved in the shooting on Utoya island. The agency says police are looking into it. The agency says that the second man apparently wasn't disguised in police uniform...
More Than 50 Haqqani Network Jihadi Sploded
NATO and Afghan troops killed more than 50 Haqqani Network fighters during an attack on an "encampment" in the eastern Afghan province of Paktika.At least this is something to cheer about today.
The encampment was located in the Sar Rowzah District in Paktika province, a known haven for the Haqqani Network and allied groups such as the Pakistani Taliban and al Qaeda.
The "training camp" was used as "a staging area for Haqqani and foreign fighters," the International Security Assistance Force stated in a press release. ISAF uses the term "foreign fighters" to describe members of al Qaeda and allied terror groups such as the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan. "These fighters were moved into the country by Haqqani insurgents who planned to use them for attacks throughout Afghanistan," ISAF stated.[More]
Book Review: Full Black by Brad Thor
Scot Harvath is back! As I tore Brad Thor's latest book Full Black from the hands of my husband (okay, he was gracious enough to let me read it first), it was all I could do to not call in sick to work so I could lose myself in yet another great read by my favorite author.
As a member of Brad Thor’s reader forum, appropriately called the “Thorum,” I have hung on every piece of news and every teaser leading up to the moment I had the copy of Full Black in my hands. Settling down, I opened the page and was immediately thrown into Harvath’s world. Missions, threats, heroism........Hollywood? Yes, even Hollywood!
Full Black does not disappoint, and is full of twists and unexpected turns. Action officially starts in this book on page 1 and doesn’t ever really stop. The missions Scot encounters are extraordinarily dangerous, but one thing that stuck out continuously in my mind as I read this book is the reality of the story line. Thor is a thriller writer, and a damn good one, but he’s also so plugged into what threats exist for us today that, while entertaining us with an incredible tale, he has a way of opening his readers’ eyes about the potential of what could be without vigilant efforts to stop terrorism before it eliminates us.
I’ve said it in other reviews, but it bears repeating: Thor does an incredible amount of research when creating the story line and without fail always sends me to Google or some other search engine to dig more into what’s behind the story. This book sent me looking for more about Navy Seals, Uppsalla, Sweden and even economics! Admittedly, I know way more about Hollywood than I really need to know. The whole Hollywood twist really got me to thinking even more about who should play Scot Harvath in a movie. My vote is Mark Valley, Mr. Thor, and I believe he’s available!
I make the same mistake every time I read a Brad Thor book. I read it way too quickly and leave myself in some kind of withdrawal. Full Black was no exception. There is a dangling carrot, though, as Thor took great care to set the stage for what will undoubtedly be another thrilling Harvath adventure. At least that gives me something to hold onto until I get my hands on his next book!
Full Black is on bookshelves on Tuesday, July 26th!
AWOL Muslim Soldier Objected to Fighting Muslims
He disappeared after being charged with possession of Child pornography:
MSNBC:The Army says a Muslim soldier from Fort Campbell who won conscientious objector status but then was charged with possessing child pornography has gone AWOL.Well his Muslim beliefs apparently did not stop him from whacking himself to videos of victimized children.
Spokesman Rick Rzepka said Wednesday that Pfc. Naser Abdo has been absent without leave since the July 4th weekend.
Abdo, a 21-year-old infantry soldier, had applied for conscientious objector status last year saying his Muslim beliefs prohibited his service in any war.

Ministry of Irony: President Obama Stiff Brits' Green Fines
London Mayor Boris Johnson is raising a stink over minor congestion charges he says President Obama's motorcade incurred while visiting his city, the London Evening Standard reports.Well its not about the letter of the Law Mr. President. Its about asking folks to pay $6 to $8 a gallon and then ducking your "fair share".
Johnson has fined the United States 120 pounds (nearly $200 U.S. dollars) in congestion levies--10 pounds per vehicle--for the presidential motorcade used during Obama's state visit in May.
The sum may seem to be a pittance, but it is part of a much larger problem, Johnson and others say.
London officials told AFP that the American Embassy owes 5.3 million pounds ($8.7 million dollars) in unpaid congestion fines--known as C-charges--which were first established in 2003. Since the roads weren't closed during the president's visit, he is subject to the fines, Johnson says.
In speaking with the Standard, the Embassy defended its refusal to pay, citing the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, which prohibits "this sort of tax on diplomatic missions."

Search For Missing Soldier Leads To Marijuana Operation
LAWTON, Okla.-- Authorities checking on the welfare of a Fort Sill soldier have found a large indoor marijuana growing operation in the man's apartment.I certainly hope he is found safe.
The soldier is identified only as a 27-year-old medic from Texas who worked at Reynolds Army Hospital. He has not been found.[More...]
He also has some splainin as to why he had approximately $70,000 worth of marijuana growing in his apartment.
PA summer camp sponsored by Fayyad names children’s groups after terrorists
As expected, via Palwatch
A Palestinian Authority summer camp for children divided its campers into three groups named after the terrorists Dalal Mughrabi, Salah Khalaf and Abu Ali Mustafa.Meanwhile, when kiddies aren't at camp they can watch this:
Dalal Mughrabi in 1978 led the most lethal terror attack in Israel's history, in which 37 civilians were killed, 12 of them children.[Coastal Road Massacre]
Salah Khalaf (Abu Iyad) was the head of the Black September terror group. He planned many terror attacks including the murder of two American diplomats, as well as the murder of 11 Israeli athletes in the Munich Olympics in 1972.
Abu Ali Mustafa, General Secretary of the terror organization Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP). He planned numerous terror attacks against Israeli civilians during the Palestinian terror campaign ("the Intifada").
A fourth group was named after Yasser Arafat.
The summer camp was held under the auspices of PA Prime Minister Salam Fayyad, who visited the camp to participate in the closing ceremonies, which he also sponsored.[More..]

Little Rock Jihadi Trial: Jury Sees Muhammad's Videotape Confession
Update on Rusty's post from yesterday: Little Rock Jihadi Defense: Brian De Palma Made Me Do It!!
LITTLE ROCK — In two videotaped confessions shown in court today, Abdulhakim Muhammad admitted firing the shots that killed one soldier and wounded another outside a military recruiting center.That's interesting, this note, dated 7/9, is from him denouncing his citizenship and pledging allegiance to Taliban's Mullah Omar[click to enlarge]:
The convert to Islam says in the tapes that he did so after watching an online video about Muslims being raped and killed by U.S. soldiers in the Middle East[Brian De Palma "Redacted" reference..ed], and he defended his actions, insisting he was not a terrorist or a member of any terrorist group.
Previously he has written he is "affiliated with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula"
Back to the article
“I’m a Muslim who is angry … angry at what is going on,” he said in one interview with authorities, adding that his intention was go kill soldiers and that he “had no intention of killing innocent people.”
Today was the second day of testimony in Muhammad’s trial on capital murder and other charges in Pulaski County Circuit Court. The 26-year-old could face the death penalty if convicted in the June 2009 shooting spree outside a west Little Rock recruiting center that left Army Pvt. Andrew Long of Conway dead [R]and Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula [L] of Jacksonville wounded.
The confessions viewed by the jury today were made just hours after the shootings. One of the confessions was to Little Rock police detectives and the other to an FBI agent.
Apparently Abdulhakim Muhammad (aka Carlos Bledsoe) is upset he wasn't given a federal trial on terrorism charges. Hence "sham" in his note. He claims the reasoning behind the trial in Little Rock is the death penalty, his father also alleges a government coverup.
Gee, I would think Carlos would be happy to fry as a martyr, who knew?
Also another interesting bit of info, when the jury was selected they were all asked "Is Islam a religion of peace"?
Deputy prosecutor John Johnson is asking Detective Hudson about Muhammad's statements to him during the interrogation. He said Muhammad lied about his plans.Filthy, nasty, lying jihadi...
According to court documents, Muhammad said he had planned various attacks. He said he previously threw a Molotov cocktail at what he believed to be a rabbi's home in Nashville, court documents show. It bounced off. He also said he targeted a recruiting center in Florence, Ky. It was closed.

UK Islamotards: The Islamic Emirates of Britain Project
I previously posted on this: UK Islamotards: Stickers4Shariah
A Muslim group in the United Kingdom has launched a campaign to turn twelve British cities – including what it calls "Londonistan" – into independent Islamic states. The so-called Islamic Emirates would function as autonomous enclaves ruled by Islamic Sharia law and operate entirely outside British jurisprudence.The last paragraph in the article shows how ludicrous the "project" is:
The Islamic Emirates Project, launched by the Muslims Against the Crusades group, names the British cities of Birmingham, Bradford, Derby, Dewsbury, Leeds, Leicester, Liverpool, Luton, Manchester, Sheffield, as well as Waltham Forest in northeast London and Tower Hamlets in East London as territories to be targeted for blanket Sharia rule.
The project, which uses the motto "The end of man-made law, and the start of Sharia law," was launched exactly six years after Muslim suicide bombers killed 52 people and injured 800 others in London.
Radical preacher Anjem Choudary
A July 7, 2011 announcement posted on the Muslims Against the Crusades website, states:
"In the last 50 years, the United Kingdom has transformed beyond recognition. What was once a predominantly Christian country has now been overwhelmed by a rising Muslim population, which seeks to preserve its Islamic identity, and protect itself from the satanic values of the tyrannical British government.
Meanwhile, Britain is struggling to combat a cycle of Islamic honor-related kidnappings, sexual assaults, beatings and murder that is spiralling out of control.ROPMA!
According to the London-based Association of Chief Police Officers, up to 17,000 women in Britain are victims of honor-based violence – forced marriages, honor killings, kidnappings, sexual assaults, beatings, female genital mutilation and other forms of abuse – every year. This figure is 35 times higher than official figures suggest, and British detectives say it is "merely the tip of the iceberg" of this phenomenon.
James O'Keefe Medicaid Sting: Virginia Medicaid Drug Smuggling Investigation
"DON'T PUT THAT ON THE APPLICATION," says the Medicaid official in Richmond, VA after a man posing as a wealthy drug dealer says he deals in illicit drugs and prostitution. The Worker gives medicaid application that states, "If you knowingly give false, incorrect, or incomplete information in order to help someone else receive benefits, you could be arrested and prosecuted for fraud."Don't confuse Medicaid with Medicare, which is a common mistake.

Promoting Modern Day Muckrakers
Medicare is a social insurance program funded entirely at the federal level and focuses primarily on the older population. As stated in the CMS website, Medicare is a health insurance program for people age 65 or older, people under age 65 with certain disabilities, and people of all ages with end stage renal disease. The Medicare Program provides a Medicare part A which covers hospital bills, Medicare Part B which covers medical insurance coverage, and Medicare Part D which covers prescription drugs.Previous:
Medicaid is a program that is not solely funded at the federal level. States provide up to half of the funding for the Medicaid program. In some states, counties also contribute funds. Unlike the Medicare entitlement program, Medicaid is a means-tested, needs-based social welfare or social protection program rather than a social insurance program. Eligibility is determined largely by income. The main criterion for Medicaid eligibility is limited income and financial resources, a criterion which plays no role in determining Medicare coverage. Medicaid covers a wider range of health care services than Medicare

Breaking! Someone Might Just Be F*kcing With the Taliban
First the disclaimer.
The Taliban’s claim on Wednesday that “the deceptive enemy” had hacked its Web site and cellphones drew skepticism from those who track cyber operations in the war zone.Because its fun? Makes the Taliban look like a bunch of third world bumbling losers in flip flops?
One former intelligence official thought the operation too “amateurish” to be the work of U.S. cyber or information operation specialists. “If you’re good enough, you can penetrate a computer and copy everything in it. Why would you do something amateurish like send a text to say Mullah Omar’s dead?’’
Those are just a couple of things I can think of and Oh someone fire that dude. Oh wait they already did.
So its highly unlikely....but...
One military intelligence official, also speaking on condition of anonymity, said it was conceivable that the Americans were trying to “perturb the network” to provoke the Taliban to start communicating with one another so that intelligence operatives could begin to listen in or track them. “It’s clearly something that would be within our capabilities,” the official said.Uh huh, Go ahead Taliban webmaster, upload that thing one more time pleeeeeezzzeeeee!
For the record, a U.S. Cyber command official said, “We do not discuss such claims.”
For the record Jawa Report is following our time honored tradition of always blaming the Jews. Or maybe elves of some sort, gremlins even. Would you believe Kilroy?
Little Rock Jihadi Defense: Brian De Palma Made Me Do It!!
Day one of the Abdulhakim Muhammad trial got under way in Little Rock today. It looks like Muhammad's lawyer is going to blame his clients love for jihad on the internet:
A Memphis, Tenn.-born convert to Islam became delusional after watching a video of alleged U.S. atrocities against Muslims in the Middle East and drove through three states seeking revenge before shooting one soldier dead and wounding another outside a military recruiting center in Little Rock, a lawyer for the accused killer told a jury at his capital murder trial today....Apparently the soldier he wanted to kill was Steven Green, who was convicted of murdering a girl in Iraq. He's the only one I can think of who was accused of an atrocity and who was from Kentucky. The video he saw was probably that of Brian De Palma's "Redacted" which was shot documentary style and has been making the rounds on YouTube ever since as a real video. Another shooting spree against American soldiers, in Germany, was blamed on the same video. De Palma's scene was loosely based on the same incident.
After Muhammad watched a video of alleged U.S. military atrocities, Benca said, he drove from Arkansas, through Tennessee and into Kentucky looking for a solder who was mentioned in the video as being found guilty of the atrocities. ...
It never ceases to amaze me how many in the Muslim world get so outraged when one of our soldiers commits a crime. In response to the incident mentioned above, two American soldiers Thomas Lowell Tucker and Kristian Menchaca, were murdered, beheaded, their bodies desecrated, and the whole incident videotaped and put on the internet.
The difference? We put our criminals in jail, they celebrate them and call them warriors of God.
But let me be the first to congratulate Brian De Palma for inspiring people to kill the soldiers that defend his liberty to slander them. Kudos Brian!
Look, I'm not saying that whatever video Muhammad saw on YouTube or elsewhere wasn't the proximate cause of the murder he committed. In fact, I think I'm saying just that. The video may very well have set him off and Brian De Palma and those passing off his work as "real" on the internet have some culpability in this.
However, given that Muhammad had already gone to Yemen where he was found to be in possession of a fake Somali passport, I think it's pretty clear the direction this guy was going in. Because I'm sure he was heading to Somalia just to see the sights.....
He already has claimed affiliation with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. When he was arrested in Yemen some years ago he had literature from Anwar al-Awlaki on him.
The proximate cause may have been a fake war crimes video, but the underlying cause seems to be a deep rooted support of the jihad ideology and the Islamist world view.
Awww: Convicted Jihadi Zachary "Abu Talhah" Chesser Complains from Prison
Zach Chesser's mugshot. Yeah, he looks like he'd do great in the general population.
Longtime friend of The Jawa Report and convicted jihadi Zachary "Abu Talhah al Amrikee" Chesser has written a long letter published by a British "advocacy group" in which he decries his treatment in prison, the deportation of his wife Proscovia "Umm Talhah" Nzabanita to her native Uganda, and custody of their son being given to his kuffar non-Muslim in-laws.
It seems poor Zach thinks it's unfair that he's been placed in a special wing of the federal prison in Marion, IL which limits the amount of communications between prisoners. Most of those in his wing of the prison are also convicted jihadis of one strip on another. It's all a part of The Great Satan's plot against Islam, he claims. Put them all together so they won't do dawah to bring followers to Allah or something:
I am in a unit more or less designed to oppress Muslims, so just about everyone is a Muslim and has a case related to jihaad in some way or another....They do not let us hold classes on Islaam, nor pray in jama'ah, nor call the adhaan. If it is not about Islaam, then why not let us do these things? The Muslims need to know these things, because this is the situation of most of the Asaara inAmerica. Wallaahi these shayatiin should not be allowed to go on television and say they do not hate Islaam and the Muslims while they attack our salaah, our adhaan, our tarbiyyah.One wonders how Zach's candy ass would fare in the general population? Since apparently this is his wish, let's grant it to him and see if he likes his living situation better.
Zach goes on in the letter lamenting the treatment of his wife & child at the hands of the FBI and DOJ. He claims he plead guilty to the terror charges to keep her out of jail. Which, as I understand it, is true.
Mrs. Zach Chesser hands out flyers at a Muslim Day Parade in NYC.
What is not true is that Umm Talhah was an innocent bystander who's only crime was driving her husband to the airport to say one last goodbye:
When I was arrested they raided this apartment and a Secret Service agent asked my wife if I was planning on going to Somalia, and she supposedly said that I was not, and that I was going to Uganda to get her birth certificate (which is actually not untrue) and that she did not want to talk to them. They decided that this was a lie and charged her with lying to a federal agent, a charge which carries a maximum of eight years.Right Zach, she had no idea you were headed to Somalia.
This is what she plead guilty to, but in exchange for my plea they let her leave the country with no jail time. There was also discussion of charging her with aiding and abetting me in trying to get to Somalia for driving me to the airport, so she could see me and her son one last time before we left.
Even though the both of you were active on the same militant forums. Even though both of you were in nearly daily communications with Samir Khan who is now the chief English language propagandist for al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Even though your wife was actively supporting terror in public before you two hooked up.
And after the Fort Hood shooting it was Chesser's wife who supported Nidal Hassan and condemned Muslim groups who supported the victims. Responding to a press release from the ISNA -- itself an Islamist organization that often fails to condemn terrorism -- condemning the Fort Hood attacks and announcing that the ISNA would be offering assistance to the victims, Mrs. Chesser wrote:
a'uthu billah this is filthyAnd then:
subhan Allah this is pure evil... the hypocritesOn Anwar al-Awlaki and Osama bin Laden Mrs. Chesser said:
Times are changing, these kuffar are trying so hard to destroy the ummah even more subhan Allah. These kuffar are afraid of anwar al awlaki. They will show a whole video about sheikh usama bin laden on the news because they feel like they have destroyed his image amongst most Muslims and amongst themselves. However, they will not want sheikh anwar to be heard because of his influence and his popularity among muslims. may Allah awj protect this ummah.I think the message is clear: the family that jihads together stays together.
Zach Chesser's wife is not some poor innocent lady. In fact, I believe that it was only under her influence that Zach transformed from jihadi fantasist to making concrete plans to join the terrorists in al Shabaab.
As to the charge that it was unfair for the state to place custody of his child with his wife's parents after her deportation, what Zach fails to mention is that he was taking his child with him to Somalia as cover for his intentions. That's right, he was leaving his wife and taking his child to Somalia. To the middle of a war zone. Where Zach intended to become a terrorist himself.
If that's not child abuse then I don't know what is.
The most sickening part of this is that, in the letter, Zach claims that his wife and child are soon to be reunited in Jordan:
Had my wife gone to jail, even for a short time, our son Talhah would have been given to a Christian family, so we both plead guilty to prevent this. Despite these efforts my son is with my wife’s mother who is a non-Muslim, but in shaa-Allaah she should be bringing my son to my wife in Jordan soon.Apparently it's better for a child to be raised a Muslim by a terror supporting mother who may run off and marry then first would-be martyr who comes along then to be raised a kuffar.
For the child's sake I hope Umm Talhah happens to be sitting in whatever restaurant in Uganda her beloved al Shabaab picks out to bomb next. And hopefully it will be before she gets on that plane to Jordan.
Thanks to the akhis for the hat tip.
Jawa GIMF Members Convicted for Online Terror Propaganda
The good news: Three members of the notorious Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF) were convicted in a German court today for spreading pro-terrorism propaganda online.
The bad news: The three were given suspended sentences as part of a plea deal, meaning they will serve no time.
The worst news: The German judge allowed the female GIMF member to wear a full head and face covering in court.
The politically incorrect yet unavoidably funny news: She looked just like a Jawa. No, really (See pic above).

Imperial Good News: Mullah Omar is Dead! (Bumped-Updated)
******Bumped because it's hilarious!-scroll down for newer posts******[SH]
Or maybe not.
I received this email from the official Taliban spokesman this AM.
Statement of the Leadership Council of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan Regarding the Martyrdom of the Most Excellent Amir ul MomineenPersonally I thought they just sent it to me to rub it in that they have recovered their website.
Among the believers, there are men who have been true to their covenant with Allah. Some fulfilled their vow by death and some are still awaiting and they have not changed in the least. (S:33-V:23)
In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficial, the Most Merciful
To all the inhabitants of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and respected Muslims it is with great shock and sorrow that the news is given that the Amir of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan and the Leader of the Taliban the Esteemed Amir ul Momineen Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid on the 15th day of July in the current year 2011, passed away after an illness of the heart. To Allah (SwT) we belong and to Him is our return.
But Michelle Malkin is reporting that the Taliban later denied their own press release, claiming phone hacking by US intelligence.
KABUL: Two Taliban spokesmen said their mobile phones had been hacked and false text messages sent out on Wednesday reporting the death of the movement’s supreme leader Mullah Omar, who is still alive.Well then intelligence has hacked more than just their phones. Because I received my Mullah Omar death announcement via Qari Yousef Muhammad's Gmail.
“This is the work of American intelligence, and we will take revenge on the telephone network providers,” said spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid, when contacted by Reuters to confirm the veracity of one text message.
The messages came from phone numbers used in the past by both Mujahid and a second spokesman Mohammad Qari Yousuf and said “spiritual Leader Mullah Mohammad Omar Mujahid has died” and “May Allah bless his soul”.
Really I fail to see a down side in this, either Mullah Omar is dead or...... the Taliban are so effing owned on the internet its not even funny.
What am I saying? Yes it is funny.
In fact I can't stop laughing..... really.
Update: It appears the Taliban have totally lost control of their website. The "fake Mullah Omar" announcement still appears on their English version of the new website which is hosted in the Netherlands.
Darn you'd have thought they'd have been safe there.

YouTube Smackdown: Open Letter To Google/YouTube Part II
......As expected - Google had to give some lip service to Joe Lieberman here recently as the anniversary of 9/11 gets nearer. They actually held a forum. h/t AlixLevin.com.It's called fear of being called Islamophobic...must be PC even if jihadi videos recruit those who would kill us and our finest and bravest.
And so there was the question - "Does YouTube proactively scan its site for terrorist content? If so, how many videos are taken down on a monthly basis (on average over the last twelve months) as a result?"
Answer - "Video is uploaded at YouTube at the rate of 35 hours per minute. Because of the massive scale of the platform, it is not possible to pre-screen content."
Either they were lying thru their teeth or - well - they were just lying thru their teeth. Since 2007 Google has had a program that pre-screens content of every uploaded video and then removes them without human intervention. It is called YouTube Content ID and is used to auto detect videos for copywrite infringements. [Continue reading to view YouTube Content ID video..Must watch..ed]
Stuck In The Middle
On the one side of the spectrum, we have Islam infiltrating every aspect of civilized society, demeaning girls and women as second class citizens (not to mention how non-Muslims are viewed) while extolling the imaginary superior virtues of the Muslim male...
And on the other side are these ignorant, liberal progressives who find even a distinction between genders to be sexist. They are creating a world of asexual, gender-confused children, no doubt being bred for their capacity as useful dhimmis.
The choice for women is a position only slightly above livestock or non-existence. For men, its a choice between primitive domination or effeminate submission.
Where do we go from here?

Fact Checking NPR's Omar al-Omari Revisionism (bumped)
Dave Reaboi has an excellent post fact checking a piece done by NPR on the firing of Omar al-Omari after we ran a number of posts on him. As Reboi points out, had NPR bothered to Google al-Omari's name they would have learned that the man is not as innocent as he proclaims.
I think what I resent most about NPR's reporting is they frame the story as an example of Islamophobia. Poor innocent Muslim fired because Americans are frightened of Islam and Muslims.
It's lazy journalism, a classic case of falling back on the liberal narrative, and utter hogwash.
The worst part? Your taxdollars are subsidizing this.
Kudos to Reaboi for quoting Zuhdi Jasser who agrees that al-Omari's publications were revisionist history at their worst. One wonders if Dina Temple-Raston thinks the President of the American Islamic Forum for Democracy is also an Islamophobe?
UPDATE: My reading of the situation is that no one ever accused al-Omari of being a terrorist, as the NPR piece implied. The originally accusation was that he tended to bolster the Islamist, Marxist, and Orientalist version of history which claims that all the problems in the Muslim world can be blamed on the West.
The second accusation was that al-Omari's version of the so-called "Muslim community" seemed to be filled with a lot of avowed Islamists and terror supporters. Men such as Hany Saqr, a go-to man for the Muslim Brotherhood, and organizations such as The Islamic Circle of North America -- the most radical of the large openly Islamist groups in the country.
Upon further investigation it turned out that he lied when getting his job with the state of Ohio. Not benignly, as the NPR piece claims, but he failed to mention getting fired from one of his teaching jobs for sexual harassment. After which he sued both the victim of his harassment and the state run college for "discrimination". Always the "victim", apparently.
Oh, and this "expert" bought two of his degrees online. Ethical, real ethical.
I really have no problem with the FBI and other law enforcement agencies doing outreach to the Muslim community. In fact, the more the better. But I hope that those involved are part of the solution and not part of the problem.
Even if al-Omari isn't a radical Islamist, then he is the kind of "academic" who's work bolsters the arguments of our enemies and reinforces their preconceived notions of America as The Great Satan. I'm just not sure how subsidizing this point of view can ever be helpful in either training law enforcement on the sensitivities of the many Muslim cultures in the US or in "outreach" to these diverse communities.

Rep King Announces Third Hearing On Muslim Radicalization In the U.S.
Rep. Pete King (R-N.Y.) said the hearing will take place on July 27. It is titled, "Al Shabaab: Recruitment and Radicalization within the Muslim American Community and the Threat to the Homeland."Good to see this hearing will be about al-Shabaab. Just recently, a new batch of al-Shabaab recruits from Ohio and Minnesota have left the country to join the terrorist group. Also, a Minnesota man Omer Abdi Mohamed plead guilty yesterday to aiding al-Shabaab
“At this hearing, the third in a series, we will examine Somalia-based terrorist organization al-Shabaab’s ongoing recruitment, radicalization, and training of young Muslim-Americans and al-Shabaab’s linking up with al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP)," King said in a statement announcing the hearing.
It will be tough for Islams useful idiots/CAIR to cry Islamophobia over this hearing. That doesn't mean they won't try, such as you see in these comment on the article
Useless and waste of time. Political motivation. It won't yield anything. He is just a sore loser who has nothing but pathetic and hatred motives.I look forward to the hearing...AND naysayers as above.

I See Dead People: al Qaeda Devotes Magazine to Dead Mujahideen
I finally got around to reading the sixth edition of my old friend Samir Khan's al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula Inspire magazine.

Homegrown Terrorists Love al Qaeda, But Not As Much As You'd Think
J.M. Berger's piece in the Atlantic about homegrown terrorists rejecting al Qaeda's call to kill civilians is worth the read. From an academic point of view the distinction between targeting civilians and those in the military is important.
However, I'm not sure if it makes much difference in the real world.
After all, the phenomenon is still one of American citizens murdering their own countrymen in the name of the foreign enemies we are fighting in a shooting war.
Perhaps the distinction is important only because the most apt description of these 'homegrown terrorists' has fallen out of use, mostly for PC reasons.
In the past we didn't call them terrorists, we just called them traitors.

Fwench Boat To Gaza, Al-Karama (aka Dignité al-Karama), Boarded By IDF (Bonus: Yvonne Ridley Hearts Jawa Report)
Al-Karama lied to Greek authorities and said they were sailing to Egypt.
"After all options were turned down, it was decided to board the yacht," IDF Spokesperson Brig. Gen. Yoav Mordechai said on Tuesday (July 19) following the interception of the Al-Karame vessel by Israeli naval forces. ""We understood that the captain was lying. He lied to authorities in Greece about the yacht's destination and changed it from Egypt to Gaza. We understood that he was taking responsibility away from himself for the yacht."Hamas (aka government in Gaza) condemned the action by the IDF. All activists dare not say the H word. Otherwise, they would be admitting a terrorist organization is supporting them.
Brig. Gen. Mordechai said that no physical friction occurred between passengers and IDF soldiers during the boarding operation.
The boarding passed peacefully and the passengers were transferred to another boat to be taken to the port in Ashdod.
"The event passed peacefully, but it is not over yet," Brig. Gen. Mordechai said. "It will end when the passengers arrive in Ashdod."[Continue reading]

(Hat Tip: Storm Saxon's Gall Bladder)
I take offense at Yahoo! News calling this "an extreme version of Islam." This isn't an extreme version, but the most accurate embodiment of Islam as Muhammad taught. This is real Islam.
The "peaceful" or "moderate" version is extreme, in the sense that it ignores and distances itself from certain demands of true Islam. By ignoring those required aspects, it ceases to be Islam.
A man who recently converted to Islam was whipped up to 40 times by strangers who broke into his Australia home to punish him for drinking [...]
Three of the men reportedly restrained him on the bed while a fourth used a cable to lash him in an attack that lasted about 30 minutes, the network reported. (Source)
So, what's the news here? He converted to Islam. Drinking is forbidden in Islam. The punishment is lashes. He is living his religion. He should be happy he's being treated like a REAL Muslim.
Of course, he could always leave Islam if he doesn't like it.
No sympathy for converts. Ignorance is not an excuse.
Iowa Dem Fights Off Robber
Representative Leonard Boswell, the U.S. congressman for Iowa's third congressional district, fought off an armed robber late Saturday night with some help from his grandson.Good job!
...he 77-year-old Democrat was spending some time at his farmhouse in his home state with his wife, daughter and grandson. Around 10:45pm Saturday night, an armed man entered the Lamoni, Iowa farmhouse. The intruder assaulted Boswell's daughter, Cindy, and demanded money. The heroic congressman heard Cindy's screams and made his way to his daughter. Boswell entered the walkway to the home, immediately went after the armed assailant's gun and began to wrestle with him. While the congressman and the intruder tangled, Mitchell Brown, Boswell's quick-thinking 22-year-old grandson grabbed a shotgun and confronted the armed man. Being the coward that he is, the armed invader fled into a nearby field and has not been caught yet.
A shotgun in the face tends to make one change his mind.

al-Qaeda Publishes Inspire 6
AQAP has released the sixth issue of the jihadi magazine Inspire.
It contains several items of interest including a touching eulogy of Osama bin-Laden that was written by Samir Khan. Anwar al-Awaki talks why he joined al-Qaeda. The magazine also includes lab directions and advice on creating the explosive Acetone Peroxide.
But the good news is we are actively targeting "white jihadis" so hopefully Anwar and Sammy's expiration date is getting very close.

Google Still Supporting Terrorism: What YouTube MUST Do About It
"As-Sahab" is al Qaeda's official media arm. A YouTube search shows over 2,000 videos self-described in English as being produced by as-Sahab.
*****sticky scoll down for newer posts*****
YouTube is now the number one source of terrorist propaganda on the internet. Over the past year YouTube, a subsidiary of internet giant Google, has taken certain steps to combat this. However, they have not gone nearly far enough.
What has YouTube done to take down terrorist propaganda videos?
They have added a "promotes terrorism" flag, giving users who stumble across terrorist propaganda the chance to report this.
Since instituting the new flag we have noticed that the time which it takes YouTube to take down these videos has decreased dramatically. In the past it was a crapshoot as to whether or not YouTube would remove a video we deemed as promoting terrorism. Today, the vast majority of videos we flag for supporting terrorism are taken down, usually the same day.
This is a good start. But it's not enough.
What further steps must YouTube make to show that it is making a good faith effort to remove jihadi video?
Unfortunately, YouTube's terrorism video policies are reactive rather than proactive. This means that a few dozen uncompensated activists are left to combat thousands of YouTube users who support terrorism of one stripe or another.
Many of these users conceive of themselves as "mujahideen" and creating and/or distributing jihadi propaganda as their "jobs". Some of these users are located in Europe and, because of generous welfare payments, have no other job than to sit around all day spreading the message. Others are from Middle Eastern, North African, and South Asian countries with economies so depressed that it is not seen as unusual for young men to do nothing productive. Still others work directly or indirectly for terrorist groups, and are therefore professionally employed as part or full-time propagandists.
The few dozen volunteers that take a few minutes out of their day to flag terrorist videos simply cannot compete with this. Most of us have serious full time jobs which simply don't allow us to do this full time.
YouTube's passive policy of only responding to flags stacks the cards in favor of the terrorists.
YouTube must become proactive in taking down terrorist propaganda. They cannot and must not wait until a user flags a video. There are simply too many videos which go unflagged this way. Thousands and thousands of them.
The passive policy adopted by YouTube equates the very serious problem of terrorism with other much less serious socially unacceptable behavior. The terrorism flag is at the bottom of a dropdown listing adults fighting, physical attack, youth violence, & animal abuse.
While I in no way endorse animal abuse, to equate a video of a dogfight with a video calling for the murder of American soldiers is a morally bankrupt position. Yet this is exactly YouTube's position.
Videos supporting terrorism must be put in the same category as other reprehensible behavior such as child pornography.
But YouTube doesn't treat terrorism with the same disgust they treat child pornography. In fact, they don't treat terrorism with the same disgust they treat pornography. But not even pornography, nudity.
I find it harder to find nudity on YouTube than finding videos which support terrorism.
Think about that. I'm willing to bet that there are many more videos containing nudity uploaded to YouTube than videos supporting terrorism. Yet nearly all of those with nudity are taken down rather quickly. I find it hard to believe that YouTube waits for people offended by such nudity to flag them before it takes them down.
If I'm right then YouTube has a proactive policy of finding and removing videos of containing nudity. They don't wait for users to flag them, but they use some sort of automated system to find and remove them.
But videos that support terrorism? That gets a lower priority and YouTube users must find these videos themselves and flag them before YouTube will remove them.
The "set to private" problem.
While we who flag these terrorist videos have to admit that YouTube is doing somewhat better than they were a year ago, the problem is just too massive for the proposed solution. There are simply too many videos in support of terrorism on YouTube and too few actively flagging them.
Over the course of the last six months I have noticed that videos come down after flagging them much quicker than before. Much quicker.
However, those that upload these videos have figured out a workaround to our flagging campaign: setting the video to "private".
Many times over the last few months when I have been notified by the YouTube Smackdown Corps of a particular target the video has been set to private viewing before it gets flagged. When a video is set to private, there is no possibility of flagging it.
This tells us two things that we already know: 1) That we have been infiltrated seems clear as the targeted video was public until the Daily Smackdown list went out and then it goes private before too many of us can flag it. Luckily, this only happens on occasion as whoever is monitoring our activities cannot possibly have a relationship with each and every YouTube user that supports terrorism ; 2) That the jihadis don't want to simply migrate their videos to other video platforms and are willing to take steps to ensure that their videos remain on YouTube.
A problem related to #2 above is the multiple YouTube accounts phenomenon. Some of the most prolific YouTube jihadis create multiple accounts. When one account is suspended, they simply switch to a new account.
YouTube should institute an IP or other user banning program which makes it more difficult for users to have multiple accounts used as backup when one of them is taken down.
The lesson for intelligence and law enforcement.
The natural reaction by some in intelligence and law enforcement circles is that the scope of the problem is so big, and the workarounds so easy, that doing nothing is the best option. The "whack-a-mole" analogy is the one often cited in these circles. You take down one video, it just pops up somewhere else. So, what's the point of taking them down in the first place?
Unfortunately, the analogy is an imperfect one and misses the larger point.
The point is not to remove all jihadi videos from YouTube or the internet. That is an impossible task.
I have never seen any pedophile videos on the internet or on YouTube, but I've been told that they are there.
The point is not getting rid of all of them, the point is to make it harder to find them.
This accomplishes goals on two ends. On the distributor end it weeds out the casual distributor of jihadi propaganda from the committed distributor. The harder you make it to keep these videos on YouTube, the less committed will fall away by the wayside. Only those truly committed to the cause will continue to take the time and effort necessary to keeping these videos online.
Neither intelligence services nor law enforcement have the resources to monitor all purveyors of terrorist propaganda. By weeding out the less committed we can more easily detect and monitor those who may be potentially more dangerous.
The same principle applies to users. Of recent discussion in jihadi circles has been the warning that those sympathetic to the cause should not download videos to hard drives or other local devices. In some countries, such as the UK, having an al Qaeda video on your hard drive is a prosecutable offense. In others, such as the US, such videos, while not illegal, could be used as evidence of a terroristic motive in an otherwise routine criminal trial.
So, jihadis often encourage one another to view these videos in streaming format which they claim makes it harder for law enforcement to either track them or prosecute them once caught.
By making the viewing of jihad material online more difficult we are helping law enforcement and intelligence agencies weed out the casual observer from those committed to the cause.
Of course, this is not a fail safe method of detecting who will commit an act of violence vs. who will not. I am not suggesting that this is the solution to the problem of homegrown terrorism.
What I am suggesting is that when it becomes difficult to find jihadi propaganda online that keeping track of who is uploading and downloading these videos will become a much more effective tool for those in the counter-terrorism fight.
Simply leaving them all up or reacting to them only when flagged is no help at all. Only when we have whittled down the number of available videos will the problem become more tractable.
So, now what?
I continue to be convinced that the only thing that will change YouTube's behavior will be a lawsuit by the family of a victim of terrorism either here or abroad. Money talks, and Google's bottom line is its profits.
Barring that then political pressure may do the trick. Hard questions from Sen. Lieberman seemed to do the trick in getting YouTube to act and add the "supports terrorism" flag. Further hard questions from other congressional committees, such as the one chaired by Rep. King, might do the trick in pressuring Google into further action.
But even if Google and YouTube do nothing, you can do something. We cannot get rid of all of these videos at YouTube -- not even close. But you can make it harder for those that support terrorism to use the world's premier video website by joining the YouTube Smackdown Corps here, or follow them on Twitter here Also follow Quotheraven's[Andrea] twitter here. She tweets throughout the day.
UPDATE: I forgot to mention two things.
First, YouTube does a terrible job at taking down anything that isn't in plain English. Arabic or Urdu or Somali? Fahget about it. That needs to change.
Second, Google held a "summit" on online extremism back in June. The fact that I wasn't invited speaks volumes. No, I don't think that highly of myself it's just on this issue there are not a lot of players and in this little iddy biddy pond I am the big fish.
But even if I was invited summits are no substitution for action. Their lawyers prepared a document that can be read here on what YouTube is doing to combat terrorist use of their product. It was that document that really spurred this post. Simply put: despite the feeble lawyeresque/PR professional language, they are not doing enough.
It's time to stop talking about action, and taking action.
Thanks to a couple of Guests in the comments for the reminders.

Apostate al-Shabaab Sells Out Allah for UN Food Aid
al-Shabaab had previously banned all UN food aid for being, you know, a tool of the Zionist entity and the Great Satan (USA).
Apparently the African Taliban's dedication to their interpretation of Islam was overrode by starvation.
CNN:CNN) -- The United Nations airlifted emergency supplies to help children in southern Somalia after Islamist rebels pledged to lift an aid ban they had imposed in areas under their control in the war-ravaged nation.Personally I'm disappointed in al-Shabaab. Remember, "All suffering is for the sake of Allah."
In the long term, however, a senior U.S. official is expressing deep doubt that the Al Shabaab Islamist rebel group will allow foreign humanitarian aid groups back into the region over the coming weeks and months.
Somalia is battling its worst drought in 60 years, sending scores walking for days to neighboring Ethiopia and Kenya in search of food and water.
I don't think Allah will be too happy that you dumped him for bag of rice with an American flag on it.
Now the truly dedicated Mujahideen would starve rather than eat such an abomination before the Most Gracious and Merciful Allah.
Allah judged you should starve, who are you to question his wisdom?

Video Taliban Murder Pakistani Police
Yes this is who we are fighting in Afghanistan. I seriously doubt the claims of the Taliban, the murdered people appear to be ordinary Muslims.
The Taliban videotaped the brutal execution of more than a dozen Pakistani policemen who were captured during last month's raid in a remote area of northwestern Pakistan.Video below the fold.
The graphic video, which shows 16 Pakistani policemen who are lined up and then gunned down by Taliban fighters wielding AK-47s, was taken in early June in the Shaltalu area of the district of Dir in northwestern Pakistan, a Pakistani official and US intelligence officials who track the region told The Long War Journal. The executions were filmed after the policemen were captured during several days of heavy fighting.
....he graphic video, which was published on the LiveLeak website, begins by showing the policemen, whose hands are bound behind their backs, in a line along a hillside. A Taliban commander tells the policemen they are responsible for the execution of six Pakistani "children" in the neighboring Pakistani district of Swat. Just prior to executing the Pakistani men, the Taliban leader gives a quick speech.
"These are the enemies of Islam who originated from Pakistan," says the Taliban commander, who is masked and has not been identified, according to a translation of the statement received by The Long War Journal. He describes the men as "murtards," or those who have abandoned Islam.

(Hat Tip: IHateTheMedia)
Michael needs to learn a bit more about Islam, and he can start by reading the Quran. He can read verse 33:21 and then read about Muhammad's behavior in the authentic Hadiths. He needs to learn about abrogation.
But even so, he seems to understand the threat we are facing and he does a good job in challenging this Muslim caller.

Doug and Courtney Hutchison
(Los Angeles, California) On June 21, actor Doug Hutchison, 51, married Courtney Stodden, 16, creating some controversy even though the nuptials received her parents' blessing. The couple met via the Internet.
Courtney insists she was a virgin and a good Christian girl. Doug claims he just fell in love. "God blessed me with a soul mate," he says.
Note that in an unrelated report, researchers have found that too much Internet usage can damage the brains of teenagers.
While on the subject of brainy teenagers, 19-year-old babysitter Loni Bouchard was arrested this week to face multiple charges stemming from engaging in a sexual relationship with the 14-year-old boy baby she was hired to care for.

Why Some People Shouldn't Have Guns
I'm not sure if I believe the whole "dog lunged at children" story, especially since the father felt the animal was safe enough to pick up in his arms. Who would pick up a potentially vicious dog?
Witnesses tell police that the pit bull named "Cocaine" had lunged at some children and tried to attack them on Friday. The dead man's son says the children were taken inside and his father picked the dog up.
It was then that police say Betty Walker fired twice, hitting the dog once and her husband once in the chest. Jackson police spokeswoman Colendula Green says the death of 53-year-old Robert Walker appears to have been accidental. (Source)
Yeah, that's the ticket! It was "accidental." ;)
Sounds to me like the woman didn't like the dog or had an irrational fear of the dog. Either way, she's too stupid to own a gun. If we're going to have gun-control laws in this country, lets start with IQ tests. That goes for applying for driver's licenses as well.
UPDATE: From the local news:
JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - A Jackson man is dead and a neighborhood pet is injured after a shooting by the victim's wife. She said she was aiming at a pit bull, attacking children, but neighborhood kids say there was no dog attack.

Pakistan's Main Export to India: Indian Domestic Terrorism
Relevant given the recent second bombing of Mumbai.
Urban terrorism in India has become synonymous with a group calling itself Indian Mujahedeen (IM) that claimed responsibility for at least four blasts this year. Added to its attacks in Jaipur, Ahmedabad, and New Delhi, the latest target seems to be Mumbai on July 13.Hat Tip: Insty.
Police believe that improvised explosive devices (IED) were used to trigger the blasts which coincided with the birthday of Ajmal Kasab, the lone Pakistani gunman in the 2008 Mumbai attack, an operation for which he has been sentenced to death. The latest terror attack, which claimed about 20 lives, comes only hours after two other suspected Indian Mujahedeen operatives, who provided vehicles used in the 2008 serial blasts in Gujarat that killed 56 people, were arrested in a Mumbai suburb by the Maharashtra Anti-Terror Squad (ATS).
Indian analysts believe that the IM emerged from militant elements in the Islamic Movement of India (SIMI) supported by the Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) and Bangladesh-based Harkat-ul-Jihad-Islami (HUJI-B). SIMI and IM endorse the goals of Osama bin Laden and also seek to provoke an Islamist revolution by India’s Muslims. SIMI/IM has long-standing ties to global Islamist organizations, including LeT and Harkat-ul-Jihad-Islami (HUJI), as well as Pakistani intelligence agencies.
Some have suggested that IM does not exist at all as an independent group but is instead an effort by Pakistan’s external intelligence agency, the Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), to project an Indian face to the activities of Pakistan-based militant groups.

Ministry of Irony: TSA Agent Struck by Tittie Twister
a Colorado woman is accused of putting her hands on a TSA agent at Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.Ow! That had to hurt, but felony hurt? I dunno?
Court records show 61-year-old Yukari Mihamae grabbed the left breast of the female agent Thursday at the Terminal 4 checkpoint.
Police say she squeezed and twisted the agent's breast with both hands.
Seems like a case of simple battery to me, and a pretty funny case at that.
Oh Noes!! Attack Of The Medieval Juice!
The sordid details
I am writing this exactly twelve hours after I was attacked by an Israeli warship, off the Gaza coast.This person deserves a Pallywood Emmy award..
As a member of the Civil Peace Service, I board the Oliva boat around twice a week to monitor Gazan fishermen’s human rights. But today, it wasn’t just the fishermen who were targeted.
We approached a cluster of hasaka fishing boats that were being attacked with water cannons at midday on July 13. As we got closer all I could focus on was the officer manning the machine gun, covered from head to toe with black, which struck me as very medieval, if you know what I mean
Our boat, along with the fishing vessels, was around two miles out to sea, well within the three-mile fishing limit imposed by Israel. We saw marines congregate on deck to watch as the water cannon was angled slowly but deliberately towards us. To my delight they struggled against the wind initially, but eventually managed to angle round us as we fumbled with the water-logged engine. I took one look at the jet being generated vertically and knew what was coming. Sure enough, pellets of water began to rain down on us with stinging force. Then I, camera in one hand, felt the jet stream slap my face directly, staying there for several seconds, before the boat was yanked away by the fishermen around us. I was flung backwards and words I never utter escaped my lips. Struggling to stay up, I forced myself to take it on the chin. Literally. As the assault continued, they repeatedly aimed at my face and each time my nose, eyes and mouth filled with seawater. At one point I even saw a naval officer indicate to the marine controlling the cannon to aim for me. He gleefully obliged.[...]
We were completely drenched through. Our captain had to order us to corners of the boat, worried it was about to capsize or sink from all the water with which it had been filled. My body started to buzz and I’m surprised I didn’t electrocute everyone with the static that was building in my bloodstream. The fishermen were safe, we escaped and I felt like we had won. Even though rinsing my mouth with the salinated Gazan water to make wudu that evening brought my brain right back to gargling waterjets on the Oliva boat, the footage is gold dust and we refused to cower from their water-taunting and domination

Taliban Website PWND So They Resort To Using Facebook
Please report and mess with them a bit .
Al Qaeda's Official Website *Strangely* Not Working (Thank You Readers!)
Over the years al Qaeda has had a number of semi-official websites. A few weeks ago they announced that the time had come to open their own official website.
Well, it was fun while it lasted.
Aaron thinks it's due to "adverse action" -- someone messing with their database. Unless he knows something I don't (which he might) then it looks to me like the webhost in Malaysia decided that doing business with al Qaeda wasn't worth the hassle of all the emails they've been getting.
Sure, we know they'll be back up. But wasn't it worth the five minutes it took you to write an angry letter to know that you've given both the Taliban and al Qaeda a major headache?
Thanks to those that helped. And America, you're welcome.

The figure is nearly 96 percent of the $9.1 billion funneled to the Pentagon from the Development Fund for Iraq (DFI), said the audit report from the U.S. Special Inspector General for Iraq Reconstruction (SIGIR).

U.S. Strikes in Yemen Said to Kill 8 Militants
USS Cole bomber was the target...
It looks like we missed...but take heart....the intel to pinpoint the car he was riding in was spot on......we so own them....matter of time.
SANA, Yemen — American drones and fighter jets hit suspected Qaeda-affiliated militants in southern Yemen early Thursday, killing at least eight fighters sleeping in a police station they had overrun, according to local residents and American and Yemeni security officials.
The strikes were part of an expanded air war in Yemen by the American military aimed at militants who now control large swaths of southern Yemen amid a power struggle in the impoverished desert country.
In recent months, the Obama administration has escalated a campaign of airstrikes carried out by the Pentagon’s Joint Special Operations Command with the assistance of the C.I.A. The C.I.A. is building a base in the region to serve as a hub for future operations in Yemen.
According to both American and Yemeni officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the attacks in Yemen are rarely acknowledged publicly, the strike on Thursday hit a police station that had been occupied by 20 militant fighters in the town of Al Wadyia, in Abyan Province in southern Yemen. One Yemeni security official said that eight people had been killed, including the gathering’s leader, identified as Hadi Mohammad Ali.
Separately, a person close to Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, the group responsible for a wave of violence in Yemen and several terrorist plots against the United States, said an American strike on Thursday hit a car thought to be carrying Fahd al-Qusaa, a leader of the group and a suspect in the 2000 bombing of the American destroyer Cole. The person said that Mr. Qusaa and a group of aides had left the car moments before the attack, and local residents said he had survived.

Woman Gets Legs Chopped Off
(Chenab Nagar, Pakistan) Authorities are searching for a young Pakistani man, Asif Bibi, accused of chopping off his sister's legs with an axe.
The sister, Shahnaz Bibi, is in the hospital and doctors said that her legs cannot be reattached.
“She has lost far too much blood and she will not walk again,” said Dr Qasim Safdar.The motive for the incident appears to be violation of a Muslim or tribal custom that mandates wives should not leave their husbands and move back in with mommy and daddy. If so, the penalty for violating the custom has to be considered beyond extreme. A boot out the door would have likely sufficed.
Shahnaz Bibi’s mother Maryam Bibi said that her son, Asif had fled after attacking his sister.
Shahnaz’s husband Taru Sanbal said that he had registered a case with the local police against his brother-in-law. “We had a quarrel and she returned to her parent’s house but it was nothing serious. I was planning on giving her time to cool off before bringing her back home. Asif had no right to ruin her life,” he said.
Shahnaz’s parents have told police that they do not know the whereabouts of their son.

Emerson "Goat Lee" Begolly indicted: Update: Rusty Physically Excited!
Above the post update by Rusty: I'll remind readers that Begolly and I have a long history. How long? Years. Long enough to remember him as "Gaot Lee, Nasheed Expert" then as "Goat Lee", "Goatly", and finally as "Asadullah Alshisani, Chechen Terrorist Brother".
In fact, I'm not sure what to do now that he's going to face a long prison term.
To paraphrase The Joker quoting another guy who once played The Joker: You complete me, Emerson.
One funny thing that came out in the evidence presented at the initial hearing was the Begolly -- here calling himself "Abu Nancy" -- was obsessed with what I thought of him.
A message from Rusty: Hey Emerson, watch out for the cornhole. Unless, um, you know, you're into that kind of thing.
Perhaps the most interesting thing is that the indictment is mostly about what Emerson has been up to on the internet. Sure, he's charged with biting two federal agents and reaching for his loaded gun, but the serious charges stem from his online activities inciting others to terrorism.
I think there's a lesson here to be learned for the online jihadis. Fortunately, they won't learn it.
---- begin original post ---
Update by Howie: I'm going to add most of the text of the DOJ press release here.
WASHINGTON – Emerson Winfield Begolly, 22, of New Bethlehem, Pa., was indicted by a federal grand jury in Alexandria, Va., today for allegedly soliciting Islamic extremists to engage in acts of terrorism within the United States and posting bomb-making instruction materials online.Begolly archives here
The indictment was announced by Lisa Monaco, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; Neil H. MacBride, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; James W. McJunkin, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI Washington Field Office; and David J. Hickton, U.S. Attorney for the Western District of Pennsylvania.
“Today’s case underscores the continuing threat posed by homegrown extremists seeking to use the Internet to incite violence,” said Assistant Attorney General Monaco.
“Emerson Begolly is accused of repeatedly using the Internet to promote violent jihad against Americans,” said U.S. Attorney MacBride. “These allegations demonstrate how young people in the United States can become influenced by – and eventually participate in – jihadist propaganda that is a serious threat to the safety of us all.”
“Today, the FBI is faced with a complex threat environment that combines homegrown extremism and the Internet,” said Assistant Director in Charge McJunkin. “The FBI’s top priority is stopping terrorism, and we remain vigilant against those who solicit violent acts in the United States.”
“Those who attempt to harm or kill Americans will face a determined, coordinated law enforcement effort,” said U.S. Attorney Hickton.
According to the two-count indictment, Begolly has been an active moderator of a popular, internationally known Islamic extremist web forum, the Ansar al-Mujahideen English Forum (AMEF), used by its members to promote and distribute jihadist propaganda. The indictment alleges that since July 2010, Begolly has placed a number of postings encouraging attacks within the United States, including the use of firearms, explosives and propane tanks against targets such as police stations, post offices, synagogues military facilities, train lines, bridges, cell phone towers and water plants.
Following the reported shootings in Northern Virginia at the Pentagon and the Marine Corps Museum in October 2010, Begolly allegedly posted a comment online that praised the shootings and hoped the shooter had followed his previous postings encouraging similar acts of violence that might “seem small but cause big damage.”
On Dec. 28, 2010, Begolly allegedly posted links to a 101-page document that contains information on how to set up a laboratory, conduct basic chemistry and manufacture explosives.
The indictment charges Begolly with solicitation to commit a crime of violence, which carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison, and distribution of information relating to explosives, destructive devices and weapons of mass destruction, which carries a maximum penalty of 20 years in prison.
On Feb. 2, 2011, Begolly was indicted for allegedly assaulting federal agents and firearms-related charges in the Western District of Pennsylvania. He faces a maximum sentence of life in prison if convicted of the charges filed in that district.
Girlfriends, Wives and Tusken Raiders Responsible for Most Violence in Pakistan

Every Time the Taliban and al-Qaeda Kill Someone, It's With the Help of Namecheap in Los Angeles
I've always hoped the system of jihadi forums would one day be so degraded that al-Qaida would intervene and set up their own forum.What had interested me about Aaron's post was the fact that just days prior we at Jawa Report had noted the new location of the Taliban's official website. A prior website owned by them had been suspended.
The day has come. Meet al-Fidaa:
Known domain names: al-fidaa.info, alfidaa.info, al-fidaa.biz, al-fidaa.com, alfidaa.biz, and alfidaa.org
All domains were registered by al-Qaida on or about 27 May, 2010. The date is significant because it suggests that this was not in response to any recent events (and note it predates the shutdown of the Faloja forum by a couple of months). In addition, the domains were only registered for a year, and all were subsequently renewed by al-Qaida prior to the launching of the al-Fidaa forum. So that's two sets of financial transactions for folks to chase down.
I determined the DNS and hosting providers and determined the best course of action was to go after the DNS record at Namecheap as the host server is in Singapore. Namecheap is an American company subject to American law which prohibit business transactions with foreign terrorist organizations (FTOs) such as al Qaeda and the Taliban.
Freezing the DNS record is a much more effective move then going after the webhosts because one can easily move data from server to server but once a name is "frozen" then a group such as al Qaeda is forced to buy a new one.
So I opened a ticket at Namecheap and informed them they were providing DNS services to the Taliban's official website. I also pointed out that under the law they are required to freeze any Taliban assets. Namely the DNS record of the Taliban.
Namecheap at first refused and pointed their finger at the host in Singapore.
This domain is only registered with NameCheap. Hosting services are provided by another company. Thus we do not control the data that are transmitted through this site. The issue should be forwarded to hosting provider for the investigation. They will be able to check whether their client violates their Terms of Services and take necessary measures.I replied that the host is not the issue, they are providing services to the Taliban and asked them to stop providing services to the Taliban.
They then replied.
We will be suspending this domain only against the order from legal authorities to do so. Hopefully you understand this.So Namecheap basically is saying that they couldn't care less about aiding a terrorist group who is killing American Soldiers every day. Unless they get a court order they are keeping the $6.95 and are going to continue to provide services to the Taliban.
To complain to Namecheap email here.
You can also report this issue to the FBI cyber crime division and also to the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Asset Control who is responsible for investigating and freezing assets of the Taliban and al-Qaeda.

Israel: These Jewish Ladies Don't Wear Burkas They Wear Hummers
TEL AVIV — The Israel Army is using an advanced U.S.-origin system to train women soldiers in urban warfare.Video, via IDF.:
The Army has been training women soldiers to operate the Hummer combat vehicle in urban warfare missions. A military statement said the training has been facilitated by the use of the Multiple Integrated Laser Engagement System, or MILES, developed by Lockheed Martin.
"The training they provide includes how to drive a Hummer on various surfaces and landscapes, avoiding the enemy line of fire, and operating the Hummer using various systems," the military said. "The IDF's Hummer Operators Unit is the only all-female unit of Hummer operators in any army in the world."

Levi Aron NYC: "I Panicked, Smothered 8 YR Old Brooklyn boy Leiby Kletzky And Dismembered His Body
Bas**rd, evil bas**rd!
(CBS/AP) NEW YORK - A Brooklyn man reportedly told police that he spent more than 12 hours with a young Orthodox Jewish boy -- including taking him to a wedding just outside New York City -- before smothering and dismembering him in a panic.He put some body parts in his freezer and the rest of them in a red suitcase, which he tossed in a dumpster.
Levi Aron, 35, detailed the time he spent with Leiby Kletzky, 8, and allegedly confessed to killing the boy in a 450-word statement obtained by WNBC-TV, NBC News reports.
"I understand this may be wrong[no sh*t Sherlock..ed] and I'm sorry for the hurt that I have caused," Aron told police, according to NBC News.
Kletzky was walking home alone from day camp for the first time Monday and disappeared while on his way to meet his mother on a street corner seven blocks away. Authorities said he had evidently gotten lost after missing a turn, and had reached out to Aron, a stranger, for help.
According to the obtained statement, Aron told police he wanted a ride to a bookstore but then lost interest.
"So I asked if he wanted to go for the ride -- (a) wedding in Monsey -- since I didn't think I was going to stay for the whole thing since my back was hurting. He said OK," Aron told police.
They returned to Aron's home around 11:20 p.m. Monday night and watched television before going to sleep in separate rooms, Aron told police. Police said Aron, who is divorced, lives alone in an attic in a building shared with his father and uncle.
Aron told police he planned to return Kletzky to his home Tuesday.
Apparently unaware that a search was already in progress for the boy, Aron left his home Tuesday to find photos of the missing boy on fliers distributed in the neighborhood.
"When I saw the flyers I panicked and was afraid," he told police. "I was still in panic ... and afraid to bring him home. That is when I went for a towel to smother him in the side room. He fought back a little bit."
Now with the body of a dead boy in his home, he told police he panicked again "because I didn't know what to do with the body." He detailed to police how he dismembered the body.

Somali-Americans From Minnesota, Again, Leave To Wage Jihad With Al Shabaab Terror Group
"One Homeland Security official describes government outreach to the Somali community as “a total failure""Looks like Muslim "youth outreach" isn't working so well, is it Homeland Security?
Rep Kings hearings on Muslim youth radicalization have drawn cries of Islamophobia! from CAIR, some Muslims and Islams useful idiots, lots of Islams useful idiots.(Dems, leftists...if the shoe fits, etc.) Oh, and don't cry again Keith Ellison. Your fake tears are pathetic.
Via Patrick Poole @ PajamasMedia
A Minneapolis man, Omer Abdi Mohamed, is scheduled to go on trial next week in federal court on charges that he aided a group of young American Somali men in their travels to Somalia to fight with the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabaab terrorist organization. Two of the men that Mohamed helped leave the country conducted suicide bombings, the most recent last month which I reported on exclusively here at PJMedia. In fact, over the past few years more than two dozen Somali men from the U.S. are known to have left for the fields of jihad in Somalia.
But just as that trial is about to begin we can report exclusively here at PJMedia that a new batch of al-Shabaab recruits from Minnesota and Ohio have left the country to join the terrorist group.
Confirmation of this new crop of al-Shabaab recruits comes from award-winning Kenyan journalist Fatuma Noor, who met up with the ten new recruits ranging in age from 17 to 24 years old in Nairobi and then Northern Kenya as they were on their way to cross the border into Somalia. Noor just won the CNN MultiChoice African Journalist award for 2011 for her past work interviewing Western al-Shabaab recruits. In her current three-part series in the Nairobi Star, she also recounts her travel with the recruits to the Somali border, and how she was almost killed by al-Shabaab in Somalia for violating Islamic law by traveling without a chaperone with men who were not her relatives (only to be saved by the al-Shabaab recruits).
In her article, Noor identifies some of the American Somalis in the groupNuno Ahmed from Minneapolis, who says that he’s joining al-Shabaab because “young people like me are needed there to protect our country.”
Abikar Mohamed from Minneapolis, who states that “we are here to protect Islam and we are going to do that at all cost.”
Abdirahman Gullet from Minneapolis, who took inspiration from his friend
Burhan Hassan and Shirwa Ahmed, both of whom died with al-Shabaab (Burhan while fighting with the group, Ahmed in a suicide bombing).
Adan Hussein from Minneapolis, who acknowledges that he “might die protecting my religion, it’s a price I’m willing to pay.” He also says that their trips were funded by some of their community elders.
Abdinassir Osman from Ohio, who graduated from high school and joined a gang and now hopes his service with al-Shabaab will make up for any past wrongs he may have made.
Ali Mohamud from Ohio, who decided to join up after listening to stories and exhortations from his mosque elders
They were joined by at least three other Somalis from other countries:Continue reading, it gets worseOmar Hassan from Canada, who claims that al-Shabaab in not a terrorist group but committed Muslims who are dedicated to ensuring Islamic law is observed in all Somalia.
Khalif Abdi from Sweden, who states that his desire to join al-Shabaab is rooted in his belief that the West is in a conspiracy to get rid of Islam as a religion.
Mukhtar Abdi from Kenya, who believes it is his responsibility to ensure Islamic law is imposed in every Muslim-majority country.
Top "Academic" On Trial in Saudi Arabia for Terrorism
Since the well known yet unnamed "academic" issued a fatwa urging Saudis to travel abroad and join al Qaeda, I'm guessing his area of "study" might have something to do with a certain religion of peace. He's one of 16 being tried by a special terrorism court in the kingdom:
Defendant No. 1 is the leader of the clandestine group, he is a well-known academic, and the Saudi General Prosecution has leveled a number of serious charges against him. According to information obtained by Asharq Al-Awsat, this defendant is accused of advocating and inciting Saudi Arabian youth to travel to fight abroad, coordinating with foreign intelligence agencies, illegally taking part in foreign conflicts, following and promoting Al Qaeda ideology, being a member of Al Qaeda, communicating and coordinating with Al Qaeda [in the Arabian Peninsula] leader Abdulaziz al-Muqrin, coordinating with AQI, funding terrorism and terrorist activities, aiding and abetting Al Qaeda members, establishing a charitable group to illegally fund terrorism, and most seriously of all, establishing a clandestine organization with the aim of seizing power, amongst other charges.H/T JMBerger.
As for the other 15 defendants, they are accused of a range of charges from funding terrorism and aiding and abetting terrorists, to establishing a clandestine organization with the aim of seizing power. It is clear, from the charges leveled against the 15 defendants, that only some of the group were active fighters who had fought abroad and took part in – or at least aided and abetted – terrorist activities, whilst others were only involved in financing terrorist activities and issuing fatwas and calling for others to take part in terrorist activities.

New Orleans Ex-Mayor Ray Nagin Writes Book
(New Orleans, Louisiana) Former Mayor Ray Nagin has written a memoir, "Katrina's Secrets: Storms After the Storm," which indicates that he was the hero during Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.
Nagin said he was chosen by God to lead the city out of the storm. God also answered Nagin's prayers by sending a brief rain shower to cool the people packed for days into the Superdome after the hurricane, preventing a potential riot, he said.Self-published by Nagin, the book reportedly received no independent fact-checking, possibly explaining why others don't seem to be contending that Nagin is a hero.
Many of Nagin's claims are startling to those who stayed through the storm and were involved in the decisions he claims to have made.
So, A$$-Kissing Doesn't Help?
The United States is viewed less favorably in much of the Arab world today than it was during the final year of the Bush administration, and President Obama is less popular in the region that Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, according to a poll released today (WED) by the Arab American Institute, a nonpartisan research and advocacy group.
Maybe another world apology tour is in order?
Every religion, nationality, race, and culture has selfish people who would put their own lives ahead of everyone else's, including children.
But no where is it more prevalent than among the male followers of the religion of peace. Whether its using children as human shields, making life and death decisions for "lesser" female family members, mutilating female children so they won't be so alluring, or simply enslaving the weaker sex for personal and sexual gain.
Now comes this story which, for some reason, doesn't surprise me a bit:
Local Australian Federal Police officer, Special Constable Shane Adams, stood on the cliffs at Rocky Point on December 15, trying to help the 89 asylum seekers and three crew members whose boat had smashed into rocks.
He spotted the girl after the boat broke apart trying to dog paddle towards a life jacket he had flung into the sea.
Const Adams said he then noticed a man aged about 35 in the water nearby.
"He reached out and grabbed the life jacket, pushed out with his right foot and struck the young girl on the shoulder, pushing her back," he told the inquest on Christmas Island.
That was the last time Const Adams saw the girl.
For those who don't know, this incident happened at Christmas Island last year when a boatload of refugees, mostly from Afghanistan and Iraq, crashed into the rocky shore during rough seas. As many as 50 people died.
Apparently, he messed with the wrong woman and got beat down (among other things...).
A Russian man who tried to rob a hair salon ended up as the victim when the female shop owner overpowered him, tied him up naked and then used him as a sex slave for three days.
Viktor Jasinski, 32, admitted to police that he had gone to the salon in Meshchovsk, Russia, with the intention of robbing it.
But the tables were turned dramatically when he found himself overcome by owner Olga Zajac, 28, who happened to be a black belt in karate.
She allegedly floored the would-be robber with a single kick.
Then, in a scene reminiscent of Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, police say Zajac dragged the semi-conscious Jasinski to a back room of the salon and tied him up with a hair dryer cable.
She allegedly stripped him naked and, for the next three days, used him as a sex slave to 'teach him a lesson' - force feeding him Viagra to keep the lesson going.
Yeah, that'll teach him...

Accused Pedophile Allowed Child Pornography In Jail
TACOMA, Wash. -- A Washington state man accused of child sex crimes is allowed to view child pornography in jail.
The sheriff and the prosecutor don't like it. But Weldon Marc Gilbert is acting as his own lawyer in the case, and that means he's allowed to review the evidence.
More than 100 videos and photographs were seized from Gilbert's Lake Tapps home after his 2007 arrest. Authorities say some of them were shot by Gilbert.
"Review" my a$$. Keep in mind, as long as he is acting as his own attorney, he'll have access to the child pornography. That means, even if found guilty and sentenced, he'll be able to view the material under the guise of preparing an appeal.

Project Gunrunner Tied Directly To Obama
In a Dec. 3, 2009, article about the announced resignation of Deputy Attorney General David Ogden, the Wall Street Journal’s Evan Perez wrote that Ogden hasn’t been identified with any major Justice Department policy initiatives. Now that this C-SPAN video from March 24, 2009, is making the rounds anew, it appears Ogden’s name — and that of President Barack Obama — is going to be associated with one now.
MSM certainly isn't going to be covering this, Obama's their pet. I also find it strange I have a hard time embedding some of the Oversight Committee videos from YouTube. Yesterday it took several tries to get the code. I have no problem with other YouTube videos, only those connected to Rep Issa's Oversight Committee on Fast & Furious.
In 2009 former CEO of Google Eric Schmidt was named Obi Ones tech czar. He still works for Google as executive chairman and acts as an advisor to co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin. Try searching on Google for "Googles CEO Obama's new tech czar", or "Eric Schmidt" instead of Googles CEO. All you will get is Schmidt not taking the job. Google owns YouTube..nuff said.
Back to the point of the post, Obama said he knew nothing about Fast & Furious, Holder said he knew nothing about Fast & Furious. Bullsh*t. Let them try to lie their way out of this but unfortunately it will be a uphill battle, they are Democrats and medias darlings.
Also, wodun linked to Gateway Pundit's post regarding Project Castaway
Rep Bilirakis (R-FL) sent out a letter today to Attorney General EriHolder demanding answers on Operation Castaway. There are reports that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives Tampa Field Division, ran a gun-running investigation that was walking guns to Honduras using the techniques and tactics identical to Fast and Furious. 1,000 of those guns were sold to MS13 buyers.Wow, just wow.
Breaking! Bombing in Mumbai
There has been some kind of attack in Mumbai India.
Reports of a series of explosions.
Breaking, expect updates.
Three explosions have shaken India's commercial capital Mumbai (Bombay), local media reported police as saying.More here:
Initial reports say dozens of people have been wounded.
One explosion was reported in the busy Zaveri Bazaar, another near the Opera House and a third in the south of the city.
The blasts coincide with the birthday of Mohammad Ajmal Amir Qasab, the sole surviving gunman from the 2008 Mumbai attacks which killed nearly 170 people.
Indian media have quoted the home ministry as saying the explosions are a terrorist attack.
Three explosions have taken place in Mumbai on Wednesday evening - two in South Mumbai at Opera House and in Zaveri Bazar and one at Dadar West, in central Mumbai. The Home Ministry has confirmed a terrorist attack and Mumbai is on high alert.
All blasts took place during rush hour and in crowded places.
Eyewitnesses said about 15 to 20 people have taken to hospital in Zaveri Bazar. Reports said six people had died in the Dadar blast, four in the Zaveri Bazaar blast.
One explosion, in a car at a bus stop in Dadar West, has been confirmed. A police officer said there might have been an explosive in a meter box behind a hoarding at Khau gali, a street filled with eateries at Zaveri Bazaar.
An unexploded bomb has also reportedly been found in Dadar and a bomb disposal squad is working to defuse it.

Report: Americans Kidnapped By Abu Sayaff (Bumped/Updated)
It's deja vu all over again in the Phillippines.
Suspicion fell on the notorious terrorist group Abu Sayyaf, which has been blamed for ransom kidnappings, beheadings and bombings in the last two decades, or a Muslim rebel commander whose group has been linked to previous abductions. The 400-plus Abu Sayyaf militants, who are fighting for an Islamist state in the predominantly Christian nation, are holding three other kidnap victims, including a child, as part of desperate efforts to raise funds, according to the Philippine army. City police chief Edwin de Ocampo told reporters that the gunmen stormed a beach house on Tictabon island and took three tourists. De Ocampo identified them as Gerfa Yeatts Lunsmann, 50, her son Kevin Eric, and a nephew, Romnick Jackaria, 19.
We pray for their safe release, and the tortuous, painful deaths of their kidnappers. Inshallah.

GOP Senators Grassley, Issa Request DOJ Hand Over Documents On Operation Fast And Furious, Name 12 Senior Justice Officials In Letter…
(The Hill) — Republican lawmakers have requested correspondence records, including emails and handwritten notes, from a dozen senior Justice Department officials who may have been involved in a controversial gun-tracking operation.ZIP has the names of the senior officials, be sure and read it all.
The Hill has obtained a letter sent from Sen. Chuck Grassley (Iowa) and Rep. Darrell Issa (Calif.) to Attorney General Eric Holder this week in which they ask for communication records from 12 senior officials with the Department of Justice (DOJ), including James Cole, the recently confirmed Deputy Attorney General.
Grassley, the ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and Issa, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, are investigating the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives’ (ATF) botched operation “Fast and Furious,” which sold thousands of weapons to known and suspected straw purchasers for Mexican drug cartels

Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad Charged with Murder not Terrorism
Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad is a textbook case of homegrown terrorism. He was born Carlos Bledsoe in Memphis, Tenn., and converted to Islam at age 20. He was active in radical circles, traveled to the Middle East and married a Yemeni woman. In 2008, he was arrested in Yemen for a visa violation and was found to have counterfeit Somali identification documents. He was held in jail and interviewed by FBI agents but was allowed to return to the United States in 2009. He was interviewed once by the bureau upon his return but reportedly was not placed under surveillance.Personally I ask why he was not declared an enemy of the state under the laws of war and shot as an irregular partisan under Geneva, but hey I know, wouldn't be prudent.
On June 1, 2009, Mr. Muhammad allegedly opened fire on an Army recruiting station in Little Rock, Ark., killing Pvt. William Long and wounding Pvt. Quinton Ezeagwula, who were outside taking a break. Mr. Muhammad was picked up by police later that day; in his vehicle they found an SKS assault rifle, a scope, a laser sight, a silencer, two pistols and hundreds of rounds of ammunition. He said he was angry at the U.S. treatment of Muslims and involvement in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. He wanted to kill as many service members as he could.
Today Every Jawa is Sad
Sherwood Schwartz, the comedy writer and producer who created "Gilligan's Island" and "The Brady Bunch," which have remained two of the most enduringly popular TV series in worldwide syndication, died Tuesday morning. He was 94.
Schwartz, who began his more than six-decade career by writing gags for Bob Hope's radio show in 1939, died of natural causes at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, said his son Lloyd.
Schwartz once said he created "Gilligan's Island," which aired on CBS from 1964 to 1967, as an escape from his seven years on "The Red Skelton Show," for which he served as head writer and won an Emmy in 1961.

Canada To Boycott UN Conference On Disarmament Over Appointment Of North Korea To Chair — U.S.? Nope
OTTAWA — [Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird]... “Our government feels this undermines not only the Conference on Disarmament, but the UN itself. And Canada will not be party to that . . . Our government received a strong mandate to advance Canada’s values — freedom, democracy, human rights and the rule of law — on the world stage.”What did the Obi One admin say?
— The Obama administration will not follow Canada’s lead and boycott a session of the U.N.-linked Conference on Disarmament to protest North Korea’s appointment to the body’s rotating presidency.Figures
“We have chosen not to make a big deal out of this because it’s a relatively low-level, inconsequential event,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said Monday.
Another Day Closer to Nuking Pakistan
The good news, it just keeps rollin' in:
Pakistan could pull back troops fighting Islamist militants near the Afghan border if the United States cuts off aid, the defense minister said on Tuesday in an interview with Pakistani media....Oh, but it gets worse:
"If Americans refuse to give us money, then okay," he said. "I think the next step is that the government or the armed forces will be moving from the border areas. We cannot afford to keep military out in the mountains for such a long period."
The U.S. has compiled a wide body of intelligence on the locations of militant training camps in Pakistan, but has been unable to persuade Islamabad to shut them down, current and former officials say.Pakistan allows us to target individual high value targets, or at least they look the other way when we do, but they refuse to allow us to take out the training camps where many of the IEDs are made before being carried over the border into Afghanistan. Some ally, eh?
This is why carrots are only half of the foreign policy equation. The other half has to be sticks. Big ones. With MOAB stamped on the side.
Taking away a carrot is not the same thing as waving a stick. This is what liberals fail to see, they erroneously equate the two.
In order to induce a reluctant ally with only a few shared interests like Pakistan into cooperating we cannot simply take away a 1/3 of a carrot. We also need to threaten them militarily because doing nothing against certain Taliban allied groups -- such as the Haqqani network -- is in their own national interests.
As long as they fear no retaliation from the US, then they will continue to allow the Taliban to use Pakistan as a safe haven.
Along those lines, I enjoyed reading this response from Rep. Duncan Hunter:
Rep. Duncan Hunter, California Republican, told The Times that the situation may come to a point where the Obama administration has no choice other than to launch attacks into Pakistan. He declined to specify the types of attacks....After ten years of fighting with one hand behind our backs, I'm not sure that widening the war is a downside. At least, it's not a downside when compared to what seems to be the obvious alternative -- losing.
Mr. Hunter, who just returned from a fact-finding trip to Afghanistan, added: “I think what has to be done, we have to deny the terrorists safe haven. We have to let Pakistan know we have to go after targets that are so embarrassing to them and so obvious to the world community [that] when Pakistan cries ‘foul,’ everybody just kind of laughs at it and shrugs it off and says, ‘Good job, America.’ And those targets are available. The super downside to that is, you widen the war.”

A source inside the border patrol in the northern Kurdish provinces of Iraq said Iranian forces crossed the border during the weekend in pursuit of members of the Party for Free Life in Kurdistan, or PJAK.
Jawa Report Financial Tip of the Day
My Official Announcement
I have decided to run for President of the United States of America. Just now, in the shower. Below are a few of the policy changes I will be making, using my Executive Order, if necessary.
- 1) Reduce National Debt/Cut Welfare Programs: Sell California to Japan. Use the money to pay off the debt and let Japan worry about all the free-loaders living there.
2) Border Security/Job Creation: Screw Panama. We'll build a new canal along the southern U.S. border. If China can build a defensive wall 6,000 miles long a thousand years ago, we sure as hell can build a 2,000 mile canal with modern technology. And it would be cheaper than another stimulus program.
3) Humanitarian Aid: I'll draft the girls from The View and from Code Pink and send them to the Middle East to obtain equal rights for all women. They will not be allow to return until they succeed. Rosie 'Donnell shall be appointed their leader.
- 4) Department of Prisons: Sheriff Joe Arpaio will be in charge of all prison systems. Pork oatmeal will be the only meal served. Don't like it? Don't go to prison.
5) Homeland Security: Chuck Norris
6) War/Foreign Policy: Apaches. Thousands of them. Millions of them. No ground troops in any hostile lands. Just millions of Apaches flying overhead. With an unlimited supply of hellfires and 30mm canons. And with the FLIR cameras linked to my Oval Office.
7) Foreign Aid: Only to countries that love America and/or aspire to be like America.
8) NAFTA: The North American Free Trade Agreement will be rigidly enforced. That's after we conquer and take over Canada and Mexico, of course.
9) TSA: I'll dump the entire TSA program and hire Israeli security forces to screen and profile airline passengers. We'll keep records of anyone who complains about profiling people and then we'll profile their sorry asses too.
10) Final Phase: Profit.
Any Jawa who comes up with relevant additions will be appointed a Cabinet Member.
Indonesia: Islamotard Work Accident
JAKARTA, Indonesia (AP) — A man reportedly trying to show students how to make explosives was killed by a homemade bomb inside an Islamic boarding school in Indonesia, police said Tuesday.I'm glad to hear about his work accident, too bad it only killed him. Or, they could be hiding some dead students bodies.
School officials and students have prevented police from entering the building since Monday's explosion, local police spokesman Lt. Col. Sukarman Husen said.
But they discovered the body of the suspected bomb maker, a 30-year-old man identified only as Firdaus, on a bus Tuesday as it tried to leave the school compound, he said.
Eleven people have been taken in for questioning, Husen said, adding that police also confiscated a number of arrows and machetes.
Husen said the bombing victim was a treasurer at the school, but media reports alleged he was a former bomb trainee in the Philippine region of Mindanao.
Toronto School Board: WTF Is This About?
The tacit endorsement of Islam by the Toronto school board.Bibles are banned but this is permitted? WTF is up with that?
The girls are being segregated during Muslim prayers, that as I have mentioned in the title, are being held in a PUBLIC SCHOOL “mosqueteria”, if you will.
The article that accompanied the photo below, gives as the reason the girls in the back are being segregated from the group is that they are having their periods. But if you notice, [all] of the girls are separated by rows of bleachers from their male classmates. How embarrassing for them to have their periods made public! And that menstruating girls are deemed so unclean that they are not even allowed to participate in the prayers with those of their own gender is all the more disturbing. Then again, what about Islam is not disturbing?
I have an idea - "you masturbated akhi, go sit with the unclean Muslimahs"
Update by Howie: More here at Blazing Cat Fur!
Yes, I know, males and females are separated in mosques but this is a fecking school for gawds sake. Payed for by the taxpayers...
Outrage! Man Who Tortured and Mutilated Bibi Aisha Released
KABUL, Afghanistan — The only suspect arrested in the case of a woman mutilated for leaving her husband has been released, local Afghan officials and the woman’s father said Monday, in a move that has angered human rights advocates and the woman’s family.See he didn't do it, he only held her down while his son cut her up. His son is still hiding and being given shelter by the Taliban.
On Monday, Mr. Farouq gave two different reasons for the release of Mr. Suleiman: that there was no one in Afghanistan to press the case against him — because the victim is now in the United States — and that he did not cut off the girl’s nose himself.
Bibi's father was asked about the release.
Aisha’s father, Mohammedzai, who was interviewed by telephone on Monday.Hopefully her ex husband and his father will meet their fate along with the Taliban scum who are hiding them very soon.
He added that Mr. Sulaiman was one of the people who held down his daughter while her husband cut her. The mutilation took place in Chora, a remote area of Oruzgan Province. Left for dead, Aisha fled to the safety of a women’s shelter in Kabul run by the advocacy group Women for Afghan Women, which publicized her plight a year later.
“The man they let out, he was Aisha’s father-in-law,” said Mr. Mohammedzai, his voice cracking as he spoke. “He was there at the time when they chopped off her nose and did the cruelty to her. He was one of the culprits and should have been punished, but the government released him.”
“We don’t know who released him,” he said. “We don’t know at all. It’s either government weakness or our weakness. We don’t have money to pay the government and we don’t have someone in the government to support us.”
Bibi was brought to the US for reconstructive surgery, which has been successful.
Israel Marks Five Years since the Second Lebanon War
119 soldiers & 45 civilians were killed 5 years ago today during the 2nd Lebanon War.
On July 12, 2006, Hezbollah terrorists killed three Israeli soldiers during an attack on an Israel Defense Forces (IDF) vehicle patrolling within Israeli territory alongside the Israel-Lebanon border. Two of the soldiers killed were taken into captivity by Hezbollah, whose attack instigated the outbreak of the Second Lebanon War—during which Israel significantly impaired Hezbollah’s military capabilities.The IDF has produced an infographic presenting Hezbollah’s gross violations of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701.
The war lasted 34 days and ended with the signing of United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701. Although a partner to the resolution, Hezbollah has directly violated UN Resolution 1701—rearming and strengthening itself with weapons and training from the Syrian and Iranian regimes. Five years later, Hezbollah has returned to full, routine militant activity in southern Lebanon.

There is a similar hour long FLIR observation video (in 5 parts) you can view at kzh's most excellent anti-Taliban Liveleak channel. It's interesting to watch because you get to better see how many checks and confirmations are done before they open fire on a group of insurgents. The shorter clips leave all that "boring" stuff out, but also opens the video to scrutiny and claims of "innocent farmer" deaths.
The clip parts are currently on pages 13 and 14 as "Apache Footage part.1," etc. (If the clips aren't listed on those pages, check some earlier pages. kzh may have added new videos since this writing.)

Unruly passenger, Saleh Ali S. Alramakh (aka Saleh Ali S. Alramaleh), on flight diverted to Cleveland faces federal charges
Update on Howie's post
CLEVELAND - The unruly passenger who caused a commercial jet flying from Chicago to Germany to divert to Cleveland Friday is facing federal charges.Another article states he was on a student visa. Also, Daily Mail has the below image. Apparently passengers tackled him, bound his hands and put a surgical mask over his mouth to keep him from spitting:
The FBI said Monday that Saleh Ali S. Alramakh, aka Saleh Ali S. Alramaleh, age 21, of Riyadh Saudi Arabia, has been charged with interference with flight crew members and attendants.
The incident caused United Airlines Flight 944 -- en route to Frankfurt -- to divert to Cleveland Hopkins International Airport at about 5:30 p.m.
According to the FBI, Alramakh went into the plane’s bathroom and used an electronic device while the plane was taxiing in Chicago. He allegedly refused to follow the flight attendant’s directives that he immediately turn off the device and return to his seat, but eventually returned to his seat.
Hats off to the passengers for making him look so purdy!

Maskophobia, Murderphobia and Bombphobia
Even as Australia was banning the veil, New Zealand was caught in a scandal over the veil after the Saudi consulate complained when two of their masked slaves[slavery ok by them..ed] were refused access to a Kiwi bus.Fatwa?
But the two bus drivers dodged accusations of Islamophobia by claiming that they instead suffer from Maskphobia. Maskphobia being the fear of people wearing masks.
While liberal New Zealand newspaper writers are ridiculing it as a dodge, it's actually a far more honest position than condemning every concern about Islam as Islamophobia. Few people are concerned about Islam because it is a five letter word or foreign. They are concerned about it, because it has a habit of murdering their kind of people. The kind who don't attend mosques, wear veils or bow to a desert deity who commanded his followers to subjugate all infidels. The proper term for this concern is Murderphobia.
Some people riding on a bus are concerned that Muslims will follow their habit of detonating buses in the name of Allah. That the masked and hooded lady is concealing a bomb belt under her portable black tent. This condition is known as Bombphobia.[Continue reading, more phobias listed]
U.S. drone strikes kill 45 suspected militants in Pakistan
Seems to be a ongoing effort to send a message...multiple strikes.
Message to Pakistan you won't do the heavy lifting......we will.
MIRANSHAH, Pakistan (Reuters) - At least 45 suspected militants were killed by missiles launched by U.S. drone aircraft in Pakistan's northwest in less than 24 hours, local intelligence officials said on Tuesday, one of the largest death tolls to date in the controversial air bombing campaign.
Coming a day after Washington announced an $800 million (505 million pounds) delay in military assistance amid worsening U.S.-Pakistan ties, the attacks could exacerbate tensions between the two uneasy allies in the war against militants.
The attacks started on Monday night, when remotely piloted drones fired nine missiles into a militant compound and at a vehicle in North Waziristan, killing 25 suspected insurgents, local intelligence officials said.
Another strike hours later in South Waziristan killed five suspected militants.
Then on Tuesday morning, a drone fired two missiles at another compound in North Waziristan.
"The missiles were fired as militants sitting in a vehicle were entering into a house used by them as a hideout," an intelligence official said, adding that 15 militants were killed in the strike. "The house is on fire."

Meet Sharia4America Webmaster Devin Zentmyer (bumped/sticky)
A conference convened last month by the Islamic extremist group Hizb-ut Tahrir in Chicago cheered the fall of secular governments in the Middle East and the political rise of groups advocating for the re-imposition of Islamic law and the revival of the global caliphate, such as the Muslim Brotherhood. The speakers at the conference also endorsed a similar program in the West, particularly America.Other folks Jawa Report readers are familiar with that are also connected or chummy with Abu Amatullah include Jihad Kathie and her husband Salahudin Ibn Jafar, who co-incidentally the last time I checked, had rekindled their love on a trip from Germany to Egypt.
One of the attendees at the conference is doing his part to make that dream of Islamic rule in America a reality.
Devin Zentmyer, who also goes by his Islamic name Abu Amatullah, is a 24-year-old prison convert who operates the Shariah4USA Facebook page and the Shariah4USA YouTube account. His MyLife profile lists his current location as Leland, Illinois, about 70 miles southwest of Chicago. A January 2007 police blotter notes his arrest on three separate warrants in three different counties for attempted obstruction of justice, failure to appear, and possession of marijuana. A May 2007 blog entry on his MySpace page notes he was incarcerated at the time in the Kendall County Jail.
According to one of his relatives, it was during his incarceration that he converted to Islam, but has become increasingly radicalized since his release by associating with extremist imams and organizations in the area and online.
Zentmyer pushes his violent and Islamic supremacist agenda through his Facebook and YouTube websites. Included in his small network of friends on his YouTube channel was Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, who was arrested in June along with another associate for plotting a suicide terror attack on a Seattle area military facility.
In April, Zentmyer posted a video of himself on his Shariah4USA YouTube channel titled “Quik [sic] Message to Muslims in the U.S.” In the video, he is calling for Islamic law to be implemented in the U.S. and decrying the treatment of Blind Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman and “Lady al-Qaeda” Aafia Siddiqui. However, as soon as I began contacting Zentmyer’s friends and relatives, the YouTube video disappeared (we have reposted his video here at PJTV).
In the video, Zentmyer says:Islam does not tell us to call for democracy. … What we are proposing to do is to become the first Muslim voices to come from within the United States to call against this democracy, to call against this hypocrisy, to call against the man-made law that is being implemented.

A copy of one of Abu Amatullah's video's is below the fold. He removed the original. I guess that's because he's not proud of it or something?
UPDATE by Rusty: Wow, watching that video hurt. It was like watching Vanilla Ice circa 1992, with a beard, but only dumber -- if that's possible. If this guy ever joins al Qaeda, I'm betting he goes straight to the head of the suicide bombers line.
If I was an Islamist, or even a terrorist, I'd be pretty ashamed to admit that this guy was on my team.

When Do We Start Bombing Pakistan Back to the Stone Age?
So, the big news today is that the US has cut off $800 million in aid to Pakistan. A good start.
And if there was any doubt about where Pakistan's loyalties lie then this story published by the UK's Guardian -- who's loyalty we might also question -- explaining that the CIA used a vaccine program to gather DNA evidence on the bin Ladens should put all questions to rest. The source of the story? The Pakistani ISI.
Oh, you'll also note in it that the man who helped the CIA track down bin Laden is presently rotting in a Pakistani jail.
I get that our relationship with Pakistan has always been complicated. I get that we need routes through Pakistan in order to supply our troops in Afghanistan. I also get that tactical decisions sometimes must override strategic goals.
That is to say, our decision to ally with Pakistan was a tactical one and not a long term strategic one.
At some point the strategic goal has to override the tactical concern. And after 10 years, I'd say that our decision to ally with Pakistan ceased being tactical years ago.
At this point any one thinking that Pakistan could be a strategic ally should be drummed out of the armed services or the State Department. If we cannot win without Pakistan's help then we cannot win. The only winning solution here is to win without support from Pakistan. Which should have been pretty clear to any one with their heads not firmly planted between their butt-cheeks years ago.
Today Pakistan complains that the US is not an ally that can be trusted. Having gone ten years without following through on Ricahrd Armitage's threat to bomb Pakistan back to the stone age if they failed to cooperate in Afghanistan I can see why they might have a point.

Australian YouTube User Digs Osama bin Laden
First sign a YouTube user might support terrorism? His avatar is Osama bin Laden.
Second sign? His videos sing the praises of the "muhajideen" overlaid with images of Osama bin Laden.
How bad is the problem at YouTube? This particular user has 797 subscribers and his videos have been viewed over 300 thousand times.
The worst part? You'd expect this in Saudi Arabia, but English seems to be his first language and he says he's in Australia.
Which means he can get into the US without a visa. But, no problem, right? I'm assured by Democrats in Congress that Muslims in the US and in other Western countries are not being radicalized. The mere suggestion of which is racist.
PS- Hey, isn't that the statue of liberty and the New York City skyline in that video? Move along people, nothing to see here.

Australian Law Says Muslimas Must Lift Veil for Police
CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Muslim women would have to remove veils and show their faces to police on request or risk a prison sentence under proposed new laws in Australia's most populous state that have drawn criticism as culturally insensitive.The new law also requires motorcyclists who are stopped to remove their helmet for identification purposes. Motorcyclists, inexplicably, were not outraged at all. What's up with that?
A vigorous debate that the proposal has triggered reflects the cultural clashes being ignited by the growing influx of Muslim immigrants and the unease that visible symbols of Islam are causing in predominantly white Christian Australia since 1973 when the government relaxed its immigration policy.
Under the law proposed by the government of New South Wales, which includes Sydney, a woman who defies police by refusing to remove her face veil could be sentenced to a year in prison and fined 5,500 Australian dollars ($5,900).

Pakistan urges U.S. to share intelligence on Zawahri
They promise not to tell him......what are you laughing at.......they promise.
ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistani called on the United States on Sunday to share information about new al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri after U.S. Defence Secretary Leon Panetta said he believed that Osama bin Laden's successor was in Pakistan.Stop snickering over there....like I said they promise not to tell him we know where he is.
During his first trip to Kabul on Saturday as Pentagon chief, Panetta said he believed that the new al Qaeda leader was living in Pakistan's lawless tribal belt on the Afghan border.
The Pakistani military said its troops were already carrying out "intense operations" against al Qaeda and its affiliates as well as "terrorists leadership" and high value targets (HVTs) who pose a threat to Pakistan's security.
"We expect U.S. intelligence establishment to share available information and actionable intelligence regarding Al Zawahri and other HVTs with us, enabling Pakistan Army to carry out targeted operations," a military spokesman said in a statement.
Absolute Faith and Trust in Allah Removed from Bangladesh Constitution
Muslims in the so called secular state were of course....outraged... You knew I was going to say that, didn't you?
(Reuters) - Police in Bangladesh on Sunday fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse Islamist activists trying to enforce a nationwide strike over the removal of a Muslim phrase in the constitution, and witnesses said around 50 people were injured.Although they have no official Sharia court there, their secular system is heavily laden with religious law, such as laws against proselytism for example.
The clashes erupted when thousands of bludgeon-carrying Islamists cut off a stretch of highway leading to the capital's eastern suburbs with barricades.
The protesters also damaged several cargo trucks before the police crack down, and some 100 people were detained.
The strike, which began two days after the country emerged from a 48-hour stoppage enforced by the opposition, was called to protest a recent amendment to the constitution which dropped the words "absolute faith and trust in Allah".

UK Islamotards: Stickers4Shariah
HARDCORE Islamists have vowed to ban booze and mixing between the sexes in new Sharia law enforcement zones across the UK.These groups praise al-Qaeda but yet they are gonna keep the neighborhood safe?
The move will see specific areas flooded with thousands of stickers saying “no gambling”, “no music or concerts”, “no porn or prostitution” and “no drugs or smoking”[...]
The radicals will kick off their controlled zones in the London borough of Waltham Forest later this month. They also claim their hardline rules will be policed by thousands of “Sharia cops” on the streets.
Preacher Anjem Choudary has called the scheme an alternative to government attempts to combat violent extremism under the Prevent strategy.
Anjem Chourdary's image credit: Flippintheraya
Last night the former al-Muhajiroun and Islam4UK leader warned: “The Prevent strategy introduced by Theresa May is going to be countered in the next couple of weeks beginning in Waltham Forest where there will be a Sharia- controlled zone sticker campaign.
“This will mean this is an area where the Muslim community will not tolerate drugs, alcohol, pornography, gambling, usury, free mixing between the sexes – the fruits if you like of Western civilisation[...]
Last night Jamaal Uddin, 17, was pictured putting up Sharia controlled zone stickers in Walthamstow.
The Muslims Against Crusades member, who said he “embraced Islam” 11 months ago said: “Allah has told us alcohol, drugs, pornography, music and concerts are all forbidden under Islam.
“That is why it is our duty to go out and spread his word among Muslims and the wider community.”

CLEVELAND - An unruly passenger caused a flight from Chicago to Germany to be diverted to Cleveland, an airport spokesperson said.
The United Airlines 777 jet landed at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport at about 5:30 p.m. Friday.
Jackie Mayo, spokesperson for the airport, said a passenger on Flight 944 headed to Frankfurt was acting “suspicious and unruly,” and would not comply with the flight crew's request to settle down. As a result, the flight was diverted to Cleveland to have the passenger removed.
When the plane landed, Mayo said K9 dogs searched the plane as a safety measure.

Michael Moore New Documentary: Imperialism Is Killing Chavez
Caracas, Venezuela -- Michael Moore has announced his latest explosive documentary: Hugo Chavez, Martyr to Socialized Medicine. As a true advocate of socialized medicine when his symptoms finally became too much for the embattled President of Venezuela he went to Cuba. From the new documentary Chief Surgeon Rafael Bernardo of the Cuban Escuela Latinoamericana de Ciencias Médicas explains: "When we first operated on President Chavez we'd thought that he was suffering from an abscessed Wish Bone. This was because of an unfortunate misdiagnosis caused by the Imperialist blockade of Cuba.Read more about the documentary at Karl Marx Treatment Center
Islamist Terrorism in the UK: 2010
The Henry Jackson Society and the The Centre for Social Cohesion have updated their yearly report on the UK connection to Islamist terrorism. As in other years, statistics from 2010 show that the UK continues to be a major hub of Islamist terrorist activities.
None of the information was particularly surprising. For instance, that most of those convicted of Islamism related offenses (IROs) were high school graduates and were either gainfully employed or were going to college. Or that the one ethnic group most disproportionately represented in terrorism related cases were those of Pakistani background.
However, one thing that might be interesting to note to US policy makers and law enforcement officials is that 66% of those convicted had no direct links to organizations deemed illegal in the UK such as al-Muhajiroun (who's members now operate under the umbrella of "Muslims Against Crusades") or al Qaeda. Further, none of those who were convicted in 2010 had attended a terrorist training camp. This suggests that group membership should not be a key factor in deciding which individuals to further investigate on suspicion of terrorism.
However, the study also shows that while the majority of those convicted had no direct connection to illegal groups, that these individuals were connected to other individuals who were connected to groups such as al Qaeda. That is to say, someone they socialized with was considered more or less a legit terrorist or extremist. Lesson: who you are friends with matters.
The entire thing is worth a read, especially for those with an academic or professional interest in homeland security and counter-terrorism.
I think these findings bolster some of Aaron's suggestions made here about online jihadis.
Israel: Six Expelled at Ben Gurion Airport; 200 Stopped Abroad Plus Welcome To Pallywood (Update: Flytillatards Cause Mayhem at Geneva Airport)
The “fly-in flotilla” planned for Friday has fizzled as foreign authorities ban most anti-Israel activists from boarding flights. Police are still on alert at Ben Gurion International Airport, but so far have encountered only six protesters.
Far-left foreign activists had planned a mass event for Friday in support of the Arab world's demand that millions of descendents of Arabs who fled pre-state Israel be allowed to “return” as citizens. While some activists said they planned to enter Israel quietly and travel to Palestinian Authority-controlled regions to protest, others were planning to riot at the airport to draw attention to their cause[...]
Police warned that the main “fly-in” wave may not yet have hit. “Anything could happen,” said Police Chief Yochanan Danino.
Some 50 ‘Welcome to Palestine’ activists reportedly barred from entering Israel while hundreds others banned from boarding flights; bystanders jeer, assault Israeli activists as police look on[...]Welcome to Pallywood at Ben Gurion International Airport
Several dozen people, who had been waiting in the terminal to pick up loved ones, began chanting, “Pieces of shit” and “Go to Syria” as the protesters were taken to waiting police vans. Some of the onlookers spit, kicked and punched the protesters while they were in police custody. Police officers did nothing to prevent these attacks.[hence the image above..ed]
UPDATE: More Pallywood, I asked this person if they have link to said videos:
NY Man Convicted of Terrorism
Flush with cash from a court settlement for a playground accident, [Betim] Kaziu traveled overseas with a buddy from Mill Basin who chickened out of the scheme and returned to Brooklyn to eventually became a government cooperator.No, collecting terrorist videos doesn't make you a terrorist. But neither does it make you Mother Theresa. And Kaziu wasn't convicted of some non-existent crime of "possessing terrorist videos". He was convicted of traveling overseas in an attempt to wage violent jihad against the West. The videos only go to motive, not to the crime.
Defense lawyer Joshua Dratel argued that a trove of militant videos - including some from hate-spewing Osama bin Laden and Anwar Al-Awlaki - found on Kaziu's laptop computer don't make him a terrorist.
And even though it's not a crime in the US to watch Anwar al-Awlaki videos or praise Osama bin Laden, these behaviors are very good indicators that a person might just be someone to keep an eye on.
Jihad in Sudan Continues Unabated

Two converts to Islam indicted Thursday over Fort Hood-style plot
Two US men were indicted Thursday on nine conspiracy and weapons-related charges over a plot to commit a Fort Hood-style massacre at a Seattle military site, the Justice Department said.Internet Haganah has an interesting break down of the kind of people Abdul-Latif is connected to via his YouTube channel, which regular readers of Jawa will recognize: Jihad in Seattle, and Revolution Muslim et al
The men, who are reportedly converts to Islam, planned to use machine guns and grenades to kill as many people as possible at a military processing center that also houses a day care facility.
Their aim was to inspire other Muslims to carry out similar attacks and one has been allegedly caught on tape saying: "Imagine how fearful America will be, and they'll know they can't push the Muslims around."
Abu Khalid Abdul-Latif, 33, also known as Joseph Davis, and 32-year-old Walli Mujahidh, aka Frederick Domingue, Jr. were charged with "conspiracy to murder officers and agents of the United States," the Justice Department said.
The following is a heavily redacted sample of just a few of Abdul-Latif's Youtube friends and their connections. There are maybe another dozen HVE's among Abdul-Latif's Youtube friends. Remember, these are weak ties, not evidence that Abdul-Latif associated in the real world with any of these people - he didn't need to. That's the point. What concerns me is that everyone in Seattle seemed to have been taken by surprise when the CHS walked in the door (see the Complaint). Given the kind of people Abdul-Latif is connected to, he really ought to have been on somebody's radar. That's not a reflection on the folks in the Seattle JTTF, who turned in a stellar performance. Rather it's a problem likely rooted in the way information gets disseminated from Washington, DC.Previous:

Sandcrawler PSA: Continuing Saga of the Template
I was so proud of the template, that was until MSRuinYourDay ran this week and IE users began emailing.
So we now have a new IE friendly main page, we hope.
Internet explorer USERS WILL HAVE TO REFRESH THE PAGE OR CLEAR YOUR CACHE.
Assuming I don't get lots of hate mail from IE users tomorrow, we'll implement the same changes to the rest of the site ASAP.
The rest of you with good web browsers, please disregard.
Update, yeah yeah, we saw that.
She'll hold together.
(Hear me baby, hold together)
Update: OK I think we have the main page just like we want it. Note I trimmed down the number of share buttons. That helped the page load much faster. I've loaded the page with two versions of IE on Windows7 and XP. Seems OK to me.
Of course IE is still the slowest browser I've tried to load. And a few flakes in that one.
We'll implement the fewer buttons on the archives today. New posts will show the new buttons, old posts will take longer.
Special thanks to Chris for helping out.

Two Million Boob March
Mark your calendars, everyone. Feminists have planned a massive demonstration for next year to advocate equality for women by exposing their breasts in public.
Women are to gather for the "Two Million Boob March" in Washington, D.C., and remove their shirts and bras.
Gotopless women have chosen Aug 26, 2012 for this revolutionary event because Aug 26 IS Women's Equality Day.Possibly as a necessary accommodation to members of Congress, boobs in public have long been legal in the District of Columbia.
Almost one hundred years earlier on that day, our constitution was giving women the equal right to vote.
Meanwhile, this year's GoToplessDay demonstration (NSFW pics in extended entry) is planned for August 21 in Venice Beach, California and other locations.(More....)

One more thing - Viva Texas! Viva Texas!
Begin original post:
This is a difficult read, but its important to know exactly what we are facing. The media is not going to give these details. They have whitewashed the crime in an effort to save the accused. (I've place the gory details below the fold to spare our more sensitive readers.)
The tragic final hours of sixteen-year-old Adrea Sauceda's life started at an outdoor party in San Antonio, Texas.
[...] Several of the party members went looking for Adria in the same area where the party was. They found her nude body lying face-up on a dirt road. They noticed Adria's head had been bashed in and it was bleeding. Her head was flinching or jerking. These party members called the police.
When the police arrived, they saw the nude victim lying on her back. There was a 30 to 40 pound asphalt rock roughly twice the size of Adria's skull lying partially on Adria's left arm. Blood was underneath this rock. A smaller rock with blood on it was located near Adria's right thigh. There was a gaping hole from the corner of Adria's right eye extending to the center of her head from which blood was oozing. Adria's head was splattered with blood.
There was a bloody and broken stick approximately 14 to 16 inches long with a screw at the end of it protruding from Adria's vagina. Another 4 to 5 inch piece of the stick was lying to the left side of Adria's skull.
Humberto Leal, Jr. was tried and found guilty of this brutal murder. He is scheduled to be executed at 8pm Thurday evening. This is the man Obama, the UN, and others want to save.

Lulz: Taliban Math
According to the Taliban, 44 NATO troops were killed in the last 24 hours. This does not include vague statement such as "all inside the NATO tank were killed" but actual hard numbers reported by the Taliban. Nor does it include the scores of "puppets" (Afghan troops) and "apostates" (innocent civilians) reportedly KIA by the brave mujahideen.
You. Can. Take. That. To. The. Bank.
Of course, the Joooooo-ish media won't report those numbers.

Israeli Group Launched "Counter-Flotilla"
Zionist student- and youthmovment group Im Tirtzu has in the past few hours participated in an act of protest at the port of Piraeus in Greece against the flotilla ships trying to leave to Gaza.The date on the YouTube vid below is July 4th, so the area was full of flotillitards:
Im Tirtzu leaders Erez Tadmor and Ronen Shoval accompanied by four other activists arrived at the shores of Greece, where they hired a yacht to pass by the ships of the pro-Palestinian flotilla protesters the ships of the pro-Palestinians in the port of Piraeus. Activists sailed between the ships with their yachts covered in posters with the picture of kidnapped soldier Gilad Shalit.
Mother Jones: Remember that Girl Who Was "Raped" Then Imprisoned by Evil Haliburton? Ummm, She Might Have Lied.
The Jamie Leigh Jones case that was sent to me by Mother Jones author Stephanie Mencimer was so old that when I got it I forwarded it to the other Jawas and asked them if any of them had written about it. So when I googled it and found that it was me with the brilliant analysis questioning the veracity of Jamie Leigh Jones' accusations against the then Haliburton owned KBR I was a bit surprised. Brilliant analysis being so sparse around these digs and all.
I'll point you to my original post, but here's a teaser:
I know I'm going to take a lot of heat for this, but this story just sound so.... well.... er ... far-fetched.I had a followup here where I also debunked some of the straight advocacy pieces on behalf of Jamie Leigh Jones which were being passed off as "reporting" by some in the MSM.
Not the rape part--rape happens all the time (gang rapes, not so much, but occasionally). Not the cover up part--cover ups happen all the time. Not the corporation trying to cover ass part--CYAs happen all the time. Not the administration is covering up part--administrations cover things up all the time.
But combine gang rape + cover up + corporate malfeasance + political intrigue and you have the perfect story. Throw in a crusading lawyer using civil law to find justice when criminal courts have let the victim down and you have the perfect John Grisham book.
Now name KBR, Haliburton, Bush, & set the story in Iraq and you have more than a blockbuster movie pitch-- you also have the perfect conspiracy.
What could be more salacious than this? I can't think of a single thing.
It's perfect. Too perfect.
But as Stephanie Mencimer reports, at trial there were serious discrepancies in Ms. Jones story and she is bracing her readers for a verdict which might vindicate KBR/Haliburton. Some of the more sensational and salacious charges -- such as the allegation that after she reported the rape that KBR imprisoned her -- were never even brought up in court.
Recall that the original filing of the civil suit was in 2007, a time when the left leaning media were criticizing the so-called "mercenaries" in Iraq and there were sensational reports about "killing sprees" and young-men-behaving-badly. So, Ms. Jones story fit right into the narrative all too well and she became a cause celebre for many on the Left -- including the Mother Jones reporter who seems to be having serious second thoughts about the accusations.
Kudos to Stephanie Mencimer for backtracking on this. Seriously, it's not easy to admit that maybe you are wrong. As a sometime advocate myself, I know how hard it is to admit that our enthusiasm for a cause sometimes clouds our ability to see past the narrative we want to see.
The problem with embellishing and sensationalizing a rape allegation to fit a political narrative is that it numbs us to the reality that many women are raped every year. And the more false or embellished rape accusations out there the more likely it will be that we, as consumers of the news, will discount the seriousness of the problem.
UPDATE: I should have known it but Ed Morrissey has some more thoughts on the case here where he reminds us that Ms. Jones and her attorney are trying to get a movie made based on her story. I'm sure she won't have a hard time pitching the narrative to a Hollywood already convinced that corporations, Bush, and war are evil.

The founder of Pakistan’s nuclear bomb program asserts that the government of North Korea bribed top military officials in Islamabad to obtain access to sensitive nuclear technology in the late 1990s.And here I was just telling a good buddy of mine what wonderful and great allies the Pakistanis were, and that if there was corruption, extremism, or anti-Americanism in the country that I had been assured that it was only a tiny minority condemned by nearly all.
Abdul Qadeer Khan has made available documents that he says support his claim that he personally transferred more than $3 million in payments by North Korea to senior officers in the Pakistani military, which he says subsequently approved his sharing of technical know-how and equipment with North Korean scientists.

U.S. now believes Qaeda leader Kashmiri is dead
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. counter-terrorism agencies have concluded that a senior al Qaeda leader implicated in terrorist plots in South Asia and Europe is dead, a U.S. official said, following weeks of conflicting reports on his fate.I can't say it enough how big this kill is...Ayman you're next.
Pakistani officials said last month that Ilyas Kashmiri, an alleged leader of both al Qaeda and one of its Pakistan-based affiliates, had been killed by a drone-borne U.S. missile strike on a target in north-western Pakistan.
Media reports quoted a commander of Harakat-ul Jihad Islami (HUJI), the local group with which Kashmiri allegedly was affiliated, confirming his death.
But when these reports first surfaced, U.S. officials said they could not confirm that Kashmiri had been killed. They noted that in September 2009 Kashmiri also had been reported to have been killed in a drone strike, which turned out to be untrue.
A senior U.S. official said that in the weeks since the most recent disputed report of Kashmiri's death, U.S. agencies had confirmed to their satisfaction that Kashmiri is dead. The official declined to elaborate on what kind of evidence the United States had acquired confirming his demise.
Kashmiri is the latest in a series of militant leaders who have been killed or captured in recent U.S. counter-terrorism operation. They include al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, killed in a Navy SEAL raid, and Ahmed Abdulkadir Warsame, a leader of the Somali militant group al Shabaab, captured at sea in April.
Kashmiri, said to be a former Pakistani military officer, reportedly was on a list Washington gave to Pakistan of militants the United States wanted captured or killed, a Pakistani official told Reuters
LulzSec Doc: Hezbollah in Mexico
We've been reporting the presence of the terrorist group in Latin America for nearly eight years now. In fact, we have an entire archive for terrorism in Latin America which we started when I first started hearing reports of Hezbollah's presence throughout the region.
So, this isn't exactly "news" in the sense that it will come as a surprise to any one. In fact, we've known for some time now that law enforcement agencies along the border have been keeping an eye out not only for the Iranian backed terrorist group but also Sunni Salafi types trying to come across our porous border.
But it is interesting nonetheless to see how law enforcement has framed the issue:
n July of this year, Mexican authorities arrested Jameel Nasr in Tijuana, Baja California. Nasr was alleged to be tasked with establishing the Hezbollah network in Mexico and throughout South America. In April of last year, the arrest of Jamal Yousef – in New York City – exposed a weapons cache of 100 M- 16 assault rifles, 100 AR-15 rifles, 2,500 hand grenades, C4 explosives and antitank munitions. According to Yousef, the weapons, which were being stored in Mexico, had been stolen from Iraq with the help of his cousin who was a member of Hezbollah.And this doesn't change the fact that each and every member of the LulzSec group should be found, prosecuted, and then paired up with a rather large yet effeminate cell mate.
With the arrest of Jameel Nasr and Jamal Yousef, obvious concerns have arisen concerning Hezbollah’s presence in Mexico and possible ties to Mexican drug trafficking organizations (DTO’s) operating along the U.S. – Mexico border. The potential partnership bares alarming implications due to Hezbollah’s long established capabilities, specifically their expertise in the making of vehicle borne improvised explosive devises (VBIED’s).

Some Flotillitards Now Turn To Flytillitarding
Some pro-Pali "activists" that have failed to set sail to Gaza, due to Greek authorities being mean to them, have decided to fly into Israel's Ben Guiron Airport.
Naturally, Israel is adding extra security to deal with said activists. They plan on being nice and stuff to them cuz said activists want to get into a confrontation with Israeli authorities so they can film it and cry foul....Pallywood style
Aussie Dave has his own ideas on how Israel should handle the provocateurs. I like these two:
3. Have special bus waiting to transport them to Gaza. The bus should have Israeli flags painted on outside, and take the scenic route, going through places such as Silwan and other areas of east Jerusalem, as well as places in Judea and Samaria.lulz
4. Have the women change into short skirts and the men shorts, and shirts with the words “ Down With The Modesty Police” or “Down With Terrorism” for both the women and men. Then drop them off in Gaza.
War Crime! Taliban: Yes, We Murdered Brit. Scott McLaren (bumped)
Can you imagine the reaction from the European and American Left had this been a Taliban insurgent who was murdered at the hands of our soldiers? Not only would there be widespread protest, but our military would do the right thing and treat those responsible as criminals.
Instead we hear nothing from the peacenik Left, always so eager to condemn our soldiers for the slightest accidental infraction, and the Taliban will, no doubt, call those responsible for this cold blooded murder heroes.
Yes, there is a difference between us and them. We're the good guys. They are simply evil.
Abdul Ahad Helmandwal, a local elder, said Highlander McLaren was grabbed by insurgents near the village of Kopak and killed a short distance away.RIP.
He said: 'They took his body to show the other Taliban that they had killed a British soldier. The other Taliban kicked the body and they threw him in the canal.'
the Mujahideen captured a British soldier with his weapon and other military hardware....So, they admit it. They captured him alive and murdered him in cold blood.
the Islamic Emirate had no way but to implement article 13 of the Code of Conduct of Mujahideen and killed the British soldier.
I get the arguments for abandoning Afghanistan based on the notion that the country and its people are just so backwards that there is nothing that really can be done. I also get the argument that if we don't send at least another 100k troops more than Obama's "surge" then there's really no point. I think these are legitimate arguments.
But for those who continually decry our troops as "war criminals" or who call the Taliban "the resistance" then stories like these need to be front and center.
And then? I think kicking their asses would be something a jury would have a hard time convicting on.
Thanks to Kieth & my apologies on behalf of The Jawa Report crew for not reporting this earlier (to my knowledge).
Department of Homeland Insecurity Removes Israel from Terror List
Last week we reported that the Department of Homeland Security Israel on a list of 36 nations which “have shown a tendency to promote, produce, or protect terrorist organizations or their members.” That's right Israel, who had been on the front lines of the war against Islamist terror almost since its creation 63 years ago was named a supporter of terror by the Obama administration.You can go about your business, move along. Move along.
The reaction to the report was immediate and wide-spread. After a week of feeling the pressure, the DHS announced today that it was all a bad mistake.
Lebanese-born Canadian On FBI terror list accused of seeking to set bomb in Israel
The indictment is two years old but was unsealed so Faouzi Ayoub could be added to the FBI's terror list.
DETROIT (AP) - A Lebanese-born Canadian man on the FBI's most wanted list of terror suspects is accused of using a fake passport in an attempt to enter Israel and conduct a bombing on behalf of the Islamic militant group Hezbollah, according to an indictment unsealed in U.S. federal court in Detroit.Also noted, in 2004 he was among the prisoners Israel swapped with Hezbollah for return of a businessman and 3 soldiers killed in 2000 during patrol.
Faouzi Ayoub, 44, faces one count of passport fraud, according to the August 2009 indictment that was only unsealed in U.S. District Court in Detroit within the past week.
Federal prosecutors accuse Ayoub, whose last known U.S. residence was in southeast Michigan, of using a passport under the name of Frank Mariano Boschi to enter Israel in October 2000. The indictment does not indicate whether authorities believe Ayoub participated in any bombing[...]
The FBI's office in Detroit could not discuss the case Wednesday, say where Ayoub was believed to be now or explain why the indictment was unsealed, spokeswoman Sandra Berchtold said.
But she noted that he should be considered armed and dangerous and that anyone with information about him should contact their local FBI office, or nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.[More]
Sandcrawler PSA: al-Qaeda of Losers are Very Very Very Desperate
They are such desperate losers that they are willing to break every medical ethic known to man in order to murder a few Americans and possibly, if they get lucky, a Jew or two.
LA Times:Ayman al-Zawahiri is not a doctor, he is a butcher.The government has warned airlines that terrorists are considering surgically implanting explosives into people in an attempt to circumvent screening procedures, according to U.S. officials.
There is no indication of an immediate plot, but the new information could lead to additional screening procedures at the nation’s airports. Existing scanners would not necessarily detect bombs implanted under a person’s skin, experts said.
Just to be clear, this is not the first time we've heard of this and other similarly sick ideas.
What Islamic Democracy?
This is worth the read.
Not to parse words but I don't think the real question is "is Islamic democracy possible?" The fact that Mali and Indonesia are both majority Muslim and listed as "free" by Freedom House (if that index is accurate) shows that it is possible.
But given that only 2 out of 47(?) countries are both majority Muslim and "free", the real question is "is Islamic democracy likely?"
2/47ths, that's roughly 4%. Not exactly a track record to be celebrated.
UNHRC's Richard Falk Publishes Anti-Semitic/Anti-U.S. Cartoon, Deletes It & Denies He Published It (Update-Falk is a 9/11 Truther)(Update II-Falk Apologized)
GENEVA, July 6 – UN Watch, a Geneva-based monitoring group, today called on UN rights chief Navi Pillay to condemn the publication of an anti-semitic cartoon by Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council’s expert on Palestine.After the above protest was published, Falk deleted it and denies posting it
“For the UN human rights system to be credible in the fight against racism, its own representatives must not be allowed to incite hatred and racial discrimination with impunity,” wrote UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer, in a letter sent today to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
Damn UN Watch & Google cache...heh
Falk, you are so Falked up.
h/t @ChallahHuAkbar tweet
UPDATE: I forgot Falked up Falk is also a 9/11 truther
UPDATE II: Falked up Falk apologizes to Jews and animals, yes, I said animals.
......To be clear, I oppose any denigration of a people based on ethnicity, race, religion, stage of development, and believe in the human dignity of all people in their individual and collective identity. Beyond this, if we are to have a sustainable human future we must also make peace with nature, and treat animals with as much respect as possible. This is both a sacred imperative of my idea of a spiritual life, but also an integral aspect of species survival on an increasingly crowded, overheated, and endangered planet.Falk lied about it, was caught in the lie, so I suppose this is the best we can expect from a 9/11 truther.
Returning to the cartoon, I regret my carelessness, and apologize for any unintended hurt and outrage caused thereby. At the same time, I am quite aware that many of the messages were motivated to discredit me due to my views of Israeli policies and behavior.

"Afghan National Army (ANA) forces during independent and joint operations with foreign troops have killed 276 enemies and detained 237 more insurgents all over the country over the past two weeks," General Zahir Azimi told reporters in weekly press briefing here.

This Is What I Have Been Telling Flotards All Along
Now there is a video - Free Gaza from Hamas and a Free Gaza From Hamas Movement:
Psychologist and patient examine the motives of Freedom Flotillas, Flytillas and other such ploys to free Gaza that are becoming increasingly fashionable among anti-Israel, Pro-Palestinian Activists.Not one activist has answered my question "Do you support Hamas"? and I follow with "Free Gaza from Hamas"
While their INTENTION to aid the Palestinian people is cause-worthy, their true agenda and MOTIVE are clearly NOT, as we shall soon discover.
On one hand, Activists want to help the Palestinians. But since they need publicity and funding for their cause, they need to find a sure-fire way to do so.
Well, as the Mavi Marmara experience taught us last year, they did. It's call Flotillas, Flytillas and friends...[...]
What the Activists don't realize, perhaps, is that by provoking Israel to stop the Gaza blockade, they are in fact severely undermining Israel's ability to defend itself against a sworn enemy, the Hamas government. Let's not forget that the Hamas refuses to privately and publicly accept Israel's right to exist and commits terrorist acts against Israel.
So we kindly request the Activists to find another way to support the Palestinian people without supporting the extreme Hamas government....
I guess that makes me an asshole, pure and simply, an asshole for asking.

Cat Fight in Afghan Parliament
Atlanta Schools Didn't Care
That they had a teacher of small children who was a self confessed al-Qaeda supporter. One also connected to convicted meat world terrorists who all were members of a now defunct yet popular Jihadist website.
At least 178 teachers and principals at nearly four dozen schools in Atlanta have been implicated in what is likely the largest cheating scandal in U.S. history to date.So you'll forgive me if I'm not surprised the Atlanta Schools' Administration is corrupt, because we notified them numerous times they had a terrorist supporter on staff and were met with silence.
The report found that teachers, principals and administrators were both helping students on the state's standardized test, the Criterion-Reference Competency Test, and correcting incorrect answers after students had turned the tests in. Eighty-two educators confessed to the allegations detailed in the report from the Georgia Bureau of Investigations.
Calling it a "dark day" for Atlanta Public Schools, Mayor Kasim Reed said the yearlong investigation "confirms our worst fears ...

There they all stand, guilty as sin, Afghan Taliban terrorists disguised in women’s burqas—but exposed when they were captured by the Afghan Border Police.

It gets better as the pamphlet linked above calls for the release of "all Muslim prisoners". And by "Muslim prisoners" they name convicted terrorists such as Abu Qatada and Abu Hamza.
This would be the same group that prayed for God to accept Osama bin Laden as a martyr in heaven. They also used the lion image which would be unmistakable to jihadis who would recognize the symbol as saying bin Laden was a "lion of Islam".

US Predators strike terrorist 'guesthouse' in North Waziristan
Telling that the terrorists have cordoned off the rubble while they try to recover bodies....wonder who was a guest.
US Predators struck for the first time in more than a week, in Pakistan's Taliban-controlled tribal agency of North Waziristan today, killing at least four "militants" in an attack on a "guesthouse."
Unmanned Predators or the more deadly Reapers fired up three fired three missiles at a "guesthouse" in the town of Mir Ali, according to reports from Reuters and AFP.
"The guesthouse was completely destroyed," a local Pakistani security official in Mir told AFP. "At least four militants have been killed in this US drone attack. Five other militants were injured." Officials said that several "foreigners," a term used to describe operatives from al Qaeda and allied terror groups, were present at the guesthouse.
The Taliban have surrounded the guesthosue and are conducting recovery operations. US Predators and Reapers often conduct follow-up attacks to kill the survivors.
"The house has been completely destroyed," another Pakistani official told Reuters. "Militants have cordoned off the area and are removing bodies from rubble."
Terror Suspect With Alleged Information About Al-Qaida Brought to NYC
They bleed him dry for two months on a navy ship... before they turned him over to Holder and company...this dude most be a very high value player.
Federal officials say a senior member of the al-Shabaab terror group was secretly brought to the U.S. Monday night to stand trial after spending months giving "valuable intelligence" about al-Qaida's operations in Somalia and Yemen.Remember this is the Obama administration.......very interesting they kept him secreted away while they bled him.
Senior administration officials say Ahmed Abdulqadir Warsame was arrested April 19 by the U.S. military and kept on a Navy ship at sea, where he was questioned by a team of U.S. interrogators.
"He gave us very valuable intelligence," one official said. Warsame was in a special position to talk about both al-Qaida's operations in Somalia and its operations in Yemen, the official added.
The officials say he was a go-between for both groups, and he's accused of providing both groups with money and training. They say he was in Yemen last year for more than a year, and that the information he provided "has been used to get a better understanding of what we're up against" with al-Qaida in Yemen.
The officials say he was questioned for weeks before he was given any kind of Miranda warning, at which point his cooperation stopped.
Holder - Fail, CIA - Win!
For a second time those members of the CIA involved in extraordinary rendition and enhanced interrogations have been exonerated. It's not only time for Eric Holder to apologize to the men and women involved who's information eventually led to the killing of Osama bin Laden, but it's also time for him to resign.
You really need to read this entire piece to get a feeling for just how political Holder's intentions were in appointing a special prosecutor to look into Bush Era CIA policies. It reports that when reopening the case that Holder didn't even bother to read the original report exonerating career CIA agents.
And the fact that a special prosecutor is passing on continuing the investigations says volumes. When you're a special prosecutor it is your job to dig up dirt. It is rare that a special prosecutor goes away without a single prosecution.
In this case the special prosecutor is only continuing to investigate two alleged crimes, neither of which were related to extraordinary rendition nor enhanced interrogations.
Here's a teaser:
Therein lies the outrage. During the Bush administration, career prosecutors from the Eastern District of Virginia conducted an exhaustive inquiry into allegations of abuse in the CIA program and decided against prosecutions in all but one case (a CIA contractor, not in the official interrogation program, who was later convicted of assault). The prosecutors drafted “declination memos” explaining precisely why they decided not to pursue charges. Not only did Holder, a political appointee, overrule the decisions of these career prosecutors, according to The Post, “Before making his decision to reopen the cases, Holder did not read detailed memos that prosecutors drafted and placed in files to explain their decision to decline prosecutions”Read the rest.

Idiot moonbat liberal stages a violent rape to cure herself of post-traumatic stress - an anxiety disorder she developed after just meeting an actual victim of violent rape.
McClelland, 31, sought professional help but said she ultimately cured herself by staging her own rape, which she writes about in a haunting piece for the online magazine Good. The title: "How Violent Sex Helped Ease My PTSD."
Nothing says "solidarity" as becoming a voluntary co-victim...
Its a victim thing. You wouldn't understand. So, to understand, you must become a victim. Of sorts. Except that you volunteered to be raped, which makes it consensual and, therefore, not really rape. Except that your 'rapist' really loved you. Except that you could stop it anytime. Except you knew your loved ones and family wouldn't also be traumatized. Except that you knew you weren't going to be murdered at the end of it.
But really, what's sicker - her deviant desire to be violently raped as a "cure," or her ex-boyfriend who was much too happy to accommodate her (this is from her magazine piece):
We'd done this sort of thing before. But at dinner I'd told him, voice shaking, about my PTSD. This time, the fight would be rougher and the stakes higher. And so he paused. "Okay," he said. "I love you, okay?" I said, I know, okay. And with that he was on me, forcing my arms to my sides, then pinning them over my head, sliding a hand up under my shirt when I couldn't stop him. The control I'd lost made my torso scream with anxiety; I cried out desperately as I kicked myself free. But it didn't matter how many times I managed to knock him over to the other side of the bed. He's got 60 pounds on me, plus the luxuries of patience and fearlessness. When I got out from under him and started to scramble away, he simply caught me by a leg or an upper arm or my hair and dragged me back. By the time he pinned me by my neck with one forearm so I was forced to use both hands to free up space between his elbow and my windpipe, I'd largely exhausted myself. [...]
But at the moment, Isaac pulled my hair away from my wet face, repeating over and over and over something that he probably believed but that I had to relearn. "You are so strong," he said. "You are so strong. You are so strong."
Surviving rape is being strong. Staging violent rape is sick. Equating your orchestrated experience with that of true victims, it's just disgusting.

Home Grown Terrorist Inspired by Internet
New York - Betim Kaziu and Sulejah Hadzovic grew up across the street from each other in Brooklyn, New York. Hadzovic says they bonded over video games as kids and remained close until discovering a new passion as young men: jihad against fellow Americans.So where did Hadzovic find a community of support to become a terrorist?
Their story of friendship, radicalisation and betrayal is playing out in federal court, where Kaziu has pleaded not guilty to charges he plotted with Hadzovic to provide support to overseas terrorists. Hadzovic testified against him as the government's star witness at a trial that is entering its second week. Kaziu's attorneys say he was never a danger.
Unlike the cases of Najibullah Zazi, mastermind of a foiled suicide attack on New York City subways, or Faisal Shahzad, the failed Times Square bomber, Kaziu's suspected exploits have gotten little attention, in part because the plot didn't get far. But his case carries many of the same themes of homegrown terrorism.
When asked by prosecutors to explain his motivations, Hadzovic replied, “We were upset at what was happening in places like Abu Gharaib prison and Guantanamo Bay, how they were humiliating and torturing Muslims there. ... It's what ultimately made us want to go and fight in jihad.”
He also told jurors he grew to believe that he could no longer live in the United States because “being a Muslim, we're stereotyped and somebody sees somebody with a beard, they automatically label him a terrorist.”
For years, US authorities have warned that disaffected young men influenced by the online teachings of American-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, a leader of al-Qaeda in Yemen, and other jihadists are a mounting threat as grave as any from established terrorist groups.
The Internet provides “the wandering mind of the conflicted young Muslim or potential convert with direct access to unfiltered radical and extremist ideology,” says a 2007 New York Police Department study on the homegrown threat.
The budding terrorists can come from good families and never show up on the law enforcement radar. Many make pilgrimages to Afghanistan and Pakistan, where they seek martyrdom by fighting American forces or - as with Zazi and Shahzad - by returning to US soil to do harm.
al-Qaeda Tried to Open Nigerian Bank
Amidst fears that the proposed Islamic banking system, may create an avenue for terrorist financing in Nigeria, the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Mallam Sanusi Lamido Sanusi, Monday revealed that a group had earlier in the 1990s, applied for licence to establish an Al Qaeda Bank in the country but was not approvedWow , you mean that Sharia banking coincides with the rise of Islamic terrorism in Africa in the 1990's?
The CBN chief who disclosed this at the opening of an international conference on Islamic Banking in Abuja, said that the group’s application was turned down for failing to meet requirements for banking licence.
Another group that applied for licence to establish another Islamic Al Barka Bank, was equally turned down, Mallam Sanusi said.
His words, “in the early 1990s two applications were received and processed for Islamic banking licence: Al Barka Bank and Al Qaeda Bank. However, those two banks could not meet the requirement for the grant of a final licence”.
But the governor insisted that he would pursue the current move for the establishment of Islamic banks in the country unless stopped by a law court, as according to him, the history of Islamic banking dated back to 1991.
I'm shocked! If you could see me you'd be shocked at the shocking look of shockyness on my face.
Ministry of Duh: New War Strategy Kill the Enemy
You know if there's one thing I like about Obi-One, he was against killing before he was for it.
Usama bin Laden has been killed. The U.S. is poised to begin withdrawing troops from Afghanistan. And the Obama administration's shift in counterterrorism strategy from land wars to precision strikes and raids is raising concerns that the White House has adopted a policy of targeting killings for terror suspects.Now that I'm over the irony of Obi-One's anti-war campaign vs. his presidential kill 'em all and let Allah sort them out. That last part seems trivial, let him swim home...
With no new detainees at the U.S. military prison at Guantanamo Bay since March 2008, a top military commander told Congress recently that there is no clear policy for dealing with suspected terrorist leaders who are captured overseas.
n many cases, the suspects are taken to a ship offshore until a decision is approved by the White House.
But also I've warned our enemies for years who supported Dems, look at American history, are you sure you really want a Democrat in office during war time. I mean it wasn't a republican that pushed the button now was it?
Also of note another shift in strategy I like. If you've not heard, most of the all major al-Qaeda forums mysteriously went off line just before the July fourth weekend.
This is also a strategy we've advocated for a long time. Not only to gather intelligence from the online world of the Jihadis. But to actively face them, humiliate them, stir up distrust.
Some analysts complain it leaves us deaf, blind and dumb. Well I doubt that it leaves US that way, just them.
I'm sure monitoring the reaction on unaffected lines of communication gives a lot of information, and yeah I don't think the forums would have died unless, you know, those other lines were not severely compromised.
So I'll give two thumbs up. One to killing the enemy and a second to kicking his ass all over the internet.

Yesterday Foxnewspolitics Twitter Feed Hacked: Hackers Tweeted Obama Was Assassinated
FoxNews.com's Twitter feed for political news, FoxNewspolitics, was hacked early Monday morning.Apparently HuffPo/AOL news readers believe it wasn't hacked.
Hackers sent out several malicious and false tweets claiming that President Obama had been assassinated. Those reports were incorrect, of course, and the president was spending the July 4 holiday with his family at the White House.
The tweets have been removed from the feed.
FoxNews.com alerted the U.S. Secret Service, which will investigate the hacking and do "appropriate follow up," spokesman George Ogilvie said.
Those responsible were bragging on twitter. Later, they stopped bragging, said it wasn't them and deleted their accounts.
Twitter hash tag #foxnewstwitterpassword is still going strong and this twitter person claimed: "Fox News tries to kill unfavorable hashtag w/ army of sock puppets posting unrelated junk", to which I asked "are you being investigated yet?
He/she/it got back to me with this: "@jstablehand I'm not on the Fox News staff, so it wasn't me. #foxhackwasaninsidejob #foxnewstwitterpassword #p2 #p2 #topprog"
I guess these idiots don't realize what happens when someone hacks a News org. twitter account and announces Obama was assassinated. Not funny, not funny at all. Granted the left hates FOX but this is just stupid.
Most MSM sites headline with "FOX news claimed their twitter account was hacked. George Soros/Media Matters anyone?
UPDATE: I asked this person why he tweeted this and if this is what he believes:
FAIL, the dude is racist.
Abu Darth al-Odieus says it best:
See the leftists can't stand that conservatives have honor, they just can't.Indeed
They all warned that the wingnuts are "racist" and the teabaggers will assasinate Obama because of his skin color. Their projection and imaginiation was that this would happen.
They want it to be true so bad that they would push Obama out in front of a bus to to finally prove themselves right.
Their thoughts betray them.
They care nothing about the president's life if it would serve to paint the wingnuts as killers.

It's July 4th and that means .... AMERICA, F*CK YEAH!
What better way to celebrate the 4th than this Team America/Captain America mash-up? Trust me, watch it 'til the end.
Wanted: Mass Quantities of Prozac for al Qaeda
Life is hard when you're in al Qaeda:
In recent months there has been a noticeable propaganda effort on the part of Al-Qaeda's leaders, and its media organs and affiliates, aimed at boosting the morale of rank-and-file jihad fighters and their supporters. It can be assumed that the organization has launched this effort in response to the pessimism and depression that have settled in among its ranks as a result of the recent successes in the U.S. war on terror – namely the elimination of many key jihadi leaders through drone strikes in Pakistan.Read the rest.
I Am The Nation
Written by Otto Whittaker and narrated by Johnny Cash.
Transcript below the fold.
I was born on July 4, 1776, and the Declaration of Independence is my birth certificate. The bloodlines of the world run in my veins, because I offered freedom to the oppressed. I am many things and many people. I am the nation.
I am 250 million living souls -- and the ghost of millions who have lived and died for me. I am Nathan Hale and Paul Revere. I stood at Lexington and fired the shot heard around the world. I am Washington, Jefferson and Patrick Henry. I am John Paul Jones, the Green Mountain Boys and Davy Crockett. I am Lee and Grant and Abe Lincoln.
I remember the Alamo, the Maine and Pearl Harbor. When freedom called, I answered and stayed until it was over, over there. I left my heroic dead in Flanders Field, on the rock of Corregidor, on the bleak slopes of Korea and in the steaming jungle of Vietnam.
I am the Brooklyn Bridge, the wheat lands of Kansas and the granite hills of Vermont. I am the coal fields of the Virginias and Pennsylvania, the fertile lands of the West, the Golden Gate and the Grand Canyon. I am Independence Hall, the Monitor and the Merrimac.
I am big. I sprawl from the Atlantic to the Pacific -- my arms reach out to embrace Alaska and Hawaii. I am more than five million farms. I am forest, field, mountain and desert. I am quiet villages -- and cities that never sleep.
You can look at me and see Ben Franklin walking down the streets of Philadelphia with his bread loaf under his arm. You can see Betsy Ross with her needle. You can see the lights of Christmas and hear the strains of "Auld Lang Syne" as the calendar turns.
I am Babe Ruth and the World Series. I am 110,000 schools and colleges and 330,000 churches where my people worship God as they think best. I am a ballot dropped into a box, the roar of a crowd in a stadium and the voice of a choir in a cathedral. I am an editorial in a newspaper and a letter to a congressman.
I am Eli Whitney and Stephen Foster. I am Tom Edison, Albert Einstein and Billy Graham. I am Horace Greeley, Will Rogers and the Wright Brothers. I am George Washington Carver, Jonas Salk and Martin Luther King Jr.
I am Longfellow, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Walt Whitman and Thomas Paine.
Yes, I am the nation, and these are the things that I am. I was conceived in freedom and, God willing, in freedom I will spend the rest of my days.
May I possess always the integrity, the courage and the strength to keep myself unshackled, to remain a citadel of freedom and a beacon of hope to the entire world.
I am the Nation.
America, The Beautiful
Happy 4th, America!
To start the celebration, I want to share one of the more memorable and unique versions of "America, The Beautiful" by the unforgettable Ray Charles:
Below the fold, also included are the lyrics and a few other versions. Pick your favorite. If not listed, post it in comments.
Mormon Tabernacle Choir:
Willie Nelson (with many other Hollywood stars):
Jaycie Ward (a child singing at a baseball game):
O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!
O beautiful for pilgrim feet
Whose stern impassion'd stress
A thoroughfare for freedom beat
Across the wilderness.
God mend thine ev'ry flaw,
Confirm thy soul in self-control,
Thy liberty in law.
O beautiful for heroes prov'd
In liberating strife,
Who more than self their country lov'd,
And mercy more than life.
May God thy gold refine
Till all success be nobleness,
And ev'ry gain divine.
O beautiful for patriot dream
That sees beyond the years
Thine alabaster cities gleam
Undimmed by human tears.
God shed His grace on thee,
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea.
Sandcrawler Intermission: Happy Birthday America!
The greatest effing country on the face of the effing planet. Period.
Today we here in the USA celebrate our freedom from left wing middle class prickocrasy.
But it seems we won't be free for long, see Google can't wait to joint the Beeb and Guardian in their censorship. Case and point, our empty ad space on the right sidebar. Because showing the truth about what the Muslim terrorist group Ansar al-Sunnah did to those Iraqi civilians is just not the kind of truth that needs to be told.
Funny they never complained about us showing the truth of what rabid terrorist murderers did to the Americans they held.
Maybe we're not supposed to know they killed more Iraqis than anyone else?
Don't be evil.

As American As Hockey And Apple Pie
I posted this before, but I thought 4th of July weekend was as good a time as any to post it again.
In this clip, a little girl sings the national anthem at a hockey game, but halfway through, her microphone cuts off. That's when the crowd comes together to help her out.
This is really what America is all about, coming together and making our world a better place for all.
Sword Of Truth
Excerpt from Terry Goodkind's Naked Empire.
We do not fight for land. We are loyal to an ideal - an ideal of liberty wherever man lives. We do not guard territory, bleed for a piece of dirt. We don't fight because we love violence. We fight for our freedom as individuals to live our own lives, to pursue our own survival, our own happiness.
Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self defense, because you think it's a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
Evil grants no mercy, and to attempt to appease it is nothing more than a piecemeal surrender to it. Surrender to evil is slavery at best, death at worst. Thus your unconditional rejection of violence is really nothing more than embracing death as preferable to life.
You will achieve what you embrace.
The right, the absolute necessity, of vengeance against anyone who initiates force against you is fundamental to survival. The morality of a people's self-defense is in it's defense of each individual's right to life. It's an intolerance to violence made real by an unwavering willingness to crush any who would launch violence against you. The unconditional determination to destroy any who would initiate force against you is an exaltation of the value of life. Refusing to surrender your life to any thug or tyrant who lays claim to it is in fact embracing life itself.
If you are unwilling to defend your right to your own lives, then you are merely like mice trying to argue with owls. You think their ways are wrong. They think you are dinner.
If, hoping to appease it, you willingly compromise with unrepentant evil, you only allow such evil to sink it's fangs into you; from that day on its venom will course through your veins until it finally kills you.
Compromising with murderers grants them moral equivalence where none can rightly exist. Moral equivalence says that you are no better than they; therefore their belief - that they should be able to torture, rape, or murder you - is just as morally valid as your view - that you have the right to live free of their violence. Moral compromise rejects the concept of right and wrong. It says that everyone is equal, all desires are equally valid, all action is equally valid, so everyone should compromise to get along.
Where could you compromise with those who torture, rape and murder people? In the number of days a week you will be tortured? In the number of men to be allowed to rape your loved ones? In how many of your family are to be murdered?
No moral equivalence exists in that situation, nor can it exist, so there can be no compromise, only suicide.
To even suggest compromise can exist with such men is to sanction murder.
Many teach that saying someone is evil is prejudiced thinking. It's a way of belittling someone already in pain for some reason. Such people must be embraced and taught to shed their fears of their fellow man and then they will not strike out in violent ways.
They are dangerous to everyone because they embrace evil with their teachings. In so doing, in trying to be kind, to be unselfish, in trying to be nonjudgmental, you allow evil to become far more powerful than it otherwise would. you refuse to see evil, and so you welcome it among you. You allow it to exist. You give it power over you. You are a people who have welcomed death and refused to denounce it.
You are an empire naked to the shadow of evil.
These people think of themselves as enlightened, as above violence. They are not enlightened; they are merely slaves awaiting a master, victims awaiting killers.

Muslim Terrorists Set Off Car Bomb in Thailand
One of three attacks, Islamic terrorism, so mundane you almost didn't hear about it.
A bomb squad officer was lucky to escape serious injury when a car exploded in Thailand's restive south on Friday. The officer, wearing a protective suit, was attempting to open the front passenger door of the parked car when the bomb exploded. Closed-circuit television footage showed the officer being thrown to the ground, but then picking himself up and walking away unhurt. Police later found an improvised explosive device in the vehicle. The incident was one of three attacks by suspected Muslim militants on government offices in the province of Narathiwat on Friday.
Update: Oh this explains it, the Thai people just elected a hot chick as prime minister. And you know how Muslims feel about chicks.
The election will pit the ruling Democrats party, which hasn't won an election since 1992, against a party supported by Thaksin, who lives outside Thailand in self-imposed exile. Many suspect Thaksin's younger sister, Yingluck, will be appointed the latter party's leader.
Sandcrawler PSA: Mashoom's Mustache No Longer Excites Vinnie
You may have noticed the web site template changing a bit.
I think it looks better anyway.
Hopefully it loads better and is a bit faster. There are a few of the chronological archives that have errors. I think they are from html errors in the entries themselves. The category archives look good. As does the rest of what I saw.
Comments now work on all archives (if they load correctly, see above). All the headers match, oooohhh pretty. Again there are some rebuilds pending.
We still have a few tweaks to put in the coming week or two. Report errors, bitches, gripes and blogroll requests to Howie.
That is all.
Update: How about those cool tweet/share buttons?
Update: I tweaked the buttons, keep the blogroll requests coming....
Sorry the buttons slow the site some. But you have to give the people what they want. That's the #1 request of authors and readers so.... it ain't going away mehtinks.
I'm going to get things stabilize and catch up a bit. We'll do a few more tweaks next weekend.
Saturday Night Funnies From Kavkaz Center, al Qaeda's Russian Affiliate (Bonus Email The Taliban!)
The terrorist attack on the Intercontinental Hotel in Kabul killed 12 including a provincial judge.
Now for the propaganda:
Taliban spokesperson Zabihullah Mujahid:
A martyrdom-seeking Mujahid, Muhammad Omar, on his cell phone during the operation said: A Mujahid carried out a martyr attack at the eastern gate of the hotel and cleared the way for the other martyr-seeking Mujahideen to enter the hotel who shut all the entrances behind them, searching all the rooms for the US-NATO military advisers and their puppets and were shot on sight in each rooms as they were found. And More than 50 invaders and their puppets were killed and dozens were wounded; while this was all done in the darkness with the help of the torches till Wednesday morning, at about 4:00 due to the power cut as soon as the Mujahideen entered the facility[...]I know they lie about who and how many they kill, but this? Talk about pathetic.
Mujahid added that we gave the detailed account of the operation to the media outlets but, they admitted to be under pressure from the higher authorities and are unable to release the full details of the operation.
Have some fun and rub it in:

Swiss Confirm 2 Nationals Were Kidnapped In SW Pakistan
GENEVA -- Two Swiss tourists have been kidnapped in Pakistan's southwest Baluchistan province, the Foreign Ministry confirmed Saturday.What can I say? Hope they are released unharmed, but, who in the hell goes touring in Baluchistan, a dangerous region in Pakistan.
Pakistani authorities notified the embassy in Islamabad late Friday following the abduction of the pair, who were traveling through the region by car, the Swiss Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
The kidnapping is the first such incident involving Swiss citizens in Pakistan, and authorities in Switzerland have set up a task force combining police and intelligence services to work on the case, it said.[More]

Defend the "Newburgh Four"(Domestic Terrorists) Press Conference (6-29-11)
The four had plotted to bomb the Riverdale Temple and nearby Riverdale Jewish Center in the Bronx, and, using Stinger surface-to-air guided missiles, shoot down military planes flying out of a nearby air base.
On June 29, 2011 , the NYC Socialists and NYU Law school held a Press Conference at NYC City Hall, demanding justice for the Newburgh 4...who are convicted of attempting to bomb a synagogue in 2009. Predictably, 'the claim the FBI did it...set them up, targeted THEM because they are Muslim. And on this day, the courts up-held their conviction; justice was meted out to the tune of 25 years.....post with pictures hereJustice was served, bitches!

4th of July Food Court Flash Mob - America The Beautiful
July 01, 2011
Nanny State Joy
Government does not like private citizens using non-governmental means to protect their private property. Of course, this egregious use of sound judgment from private citizens has even prompted the local news station to make this story a BREAKING NEWS ALERT at the top of their homepage.
As if this isn't bad enough nanny state crap, here's another example. The Omaha city government finally pulled its head out of its ass and passed an ordinance allowing fireworks. Of course, now we're being bombarded by commercials from the Omaha chapter of the National Safety Council featuring some asshole calling himself "Major Intelligence" chastising us to not shoot off our own fireworks that are now legal, but to go to a public display, like he does.
Stupid ninnies, they can kiss our asses. We're blowing stuff up this weekend! We're declaring independence from your stupid nanny state bullshit!

Jawa PSA: We did not hack al Qaeda
I was gone when a number of jihadi forums went lights out, but I believe we talked about this before the MSM got wind of the story by linking this post over at Internet Haganah.
But since I'm still getting a number of emails asking if we were the responsible party the answer is emphatically no.
We do not hack any websites. Never have, never will. Even al Qaeda websites. Especially al Qaeda websites.
Nor do I believe that Th3j35t3r is responsible.
Then who is the responsible party? No comment.
Computer hackers shut down al-Qaida's ability to communicate its messages to the world through the Internet, interrupting the group's flow of videos and communiqués, according to a terrorism expert.But, note to Evan Kohlmann: ix-nay on the eculationspay of the ouknowwhosyay involvementway.
"Al-Qaida's online communications have been temporarily crippled, and it does not have a single trusted distribution channel available on the Internet," said Evan Kohlmann, of Flashpoint Global Partners, which monitors the group's communications.
The attack was carried out within the past few days by unknown hackers targeting al-Qaida's Internet communications systems. It was "well coordinated and involved the use of an unusual cocktail of relatively sophisticated techniques," Kohlmann said.
That's Barack To You

Celebrating Freedom And Independence Makes People Republican
They say it like it's a bad thing...
Die-hard Democrats may want to keep their children well away from July 4th parades, according to a new Harvard study.
Researchers at the university claim youngsters who attend the patriotic events are much more likely to grow up as Republicans.
And it’s not just children – the study also claims that adults are more likely to vote for a GOP candidate on election day if they go to one of the parades.
So, to the Democratic mindset, the 4th of July has little or no impact, and that those who do celebrate it are only engaging in indoctrination and propaganda.
But why do we celebrate the 4th of July? Phenomenal Content puts it best:
We celebrate the 4th of July as a reminder of the bravery of our forefathers and to celebrate freedom. We celebrate those things that were written in the Declaration of Independence, “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
Sacrifice, Freedom, Equality & Liberty.
Some Democrats find these things insignificant or even objectionable.
Below the fold, the complete text of the Declaration of Independence. Read it.
IN CONGRESS, July 4, 1776.
The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America,
When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.--Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.
- He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.
He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.
He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.
He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.
He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.
He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the Legislative powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.
He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.
He has obstructed the Administration of Justice, by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary powers.
He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.
He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.
He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.
He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil power.
He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:
For Quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:
For protecting them, by a mock Trial, from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:
For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:
For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:
For depriving us in many cases, of the benefits of Trial by Jury:
For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences
For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies:
For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws, and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:
For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.
He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.
He has plundered our seas, ravaged our Coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.
He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.
He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.
He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages, whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.
In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.
Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our Brittish brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which, would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.
We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States; that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury: Liar Scam Artist
Can we admit that we have been scammed? Many of us in the Western world believed the Bangladeshi journalist and publisher, Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, when he called himself a "Muslim Zionist." Choudhury presented himself as devoted to Jewish people and Western principles of democracy. He won international acclaim and generous financial support as one of the few Muslims who affirmed our values by playing on the hopes and fears of the West in the post 9/11 world. However, this in-depth investigation reveals that he has been exploiting his supporters and is creating national security risks for both Israel and the West.More details about how Choudhury defrauded two female Jewish supporters, sent bogus checks, never worked for TASS or graduated from the London School of Economics.
But hey he was only lying to the Kufr, so under Islam he's pure as freshly fallen snow.
Now wait, he ripped off his Muslim Ahki too.

So today they suspended me for not altering the page, despite the fact that Google's ads are not longer placed there.

Also I've had one complaints about the current ads running pop-ups? Is anyone else getting that? If its really a problem I'll take those down.
I'm running applications for alternate services, it takes time.

Oh well I can always take solace that Google is about to have to shell out 500 million to settle with DOJ for advertising for illegal distribution of prescription drugs. And another 450 mill suit was just filed.
At one time Google was the hope of a truly equal and democratic internet, where anyone could do what ever their ability allowed. Bypassing the "powers that be".
Now its just another greedy elitist promoter of the stratification of the internet. If you're not a Google approved player, you don't get to play.
