UPDATE: So I "accidentally" clicked on Howie's link and I felt pretty guilty since I thought Taylor Swift was like 15 or something. But then googled I her and found out she's almost 22!!!
Now I only feel normal amounts of guilt.
American Carries Out Suicide Attack in Somalia, Urges Jihad in US
Well, there's one less American born jihadist we have to worry about:
A suicide bomber who carried out an attack in Somalia this weekend was an American citizen of Somali descent, a website associated with the Al-Shabaab Islamist movement claimed Sunday.
The website named the bombers as Aden al-Ansari and Cabdi Salaam al-Muhajir, and posted what it said was an audio interview with al-Muhajir speaking American-accented English. The speaker urges his "brothers and sisters" to "do jihad" in America, Canada, England, "anywhere in Europe, in Asia, in Africa, in China, in Australia, anywhere you find kuffar," a derogatory term for non-Muslims.

Samir Khan's Father Led US Branch of Tanzeem al-Islami
I was reading this article by a Pakistani "journalist" lamenting that poor misguided Samir Khan's UN rights were theoretically violated when the US targeted an al-Qaeda cell in Yemen.
pakistankakhudahafiz.com: Awlaki is now dead. What is saddening though, is that along with him, a young Pakistani-American named Samir Khan was also murdered. His brief profile is available for everyone to search on the Internet.Lets set aside all the BS about killing an enemy combatant during a time of war being unlawful for a minute. I mean the charge is laughable at best. But there are more interesting facts here.
Samir was just 25. One might ask, “Even if he was young? Why should he be exempt from the law?” This is precisely my question. Since when have drone strikes become a tool of justice? Killing people extra-judicially is known as murder in the civilized world which America rants about, why then this discrimination?
First of all lets look at the charge that Samir was misguided.
The author, who also adds comments in the article, is one Zaki Khalid. His comments link to. http://www.tanzeem.org/ which is the website of the Pakistani based group Tanzeem-e-Islami. You can find other examples of his work here, on his blog here, and on his twitter page here.
The link to Tanzeem is significant in that as reported by the The Anti- Defamation League
Samir Khan's early writing concentrated on Tanzeem al-Islami.Samir Khan's first inshaAllahshaheed blog, launched in 2004, mainly included materials about Tanzeem-e-Islami, a radical anti-Semitic group based in Pakistan that has a presence in the U.S. Khan, who became involved with Tanzeem as a teenager through a summer program in Queens run by local members of the group, has identified himself as a member, specifically with the New York Chapter, on various posts to online forums over the years.
Tanzeem-e-Islami, which describes itself as part of a movement to establish a global Islamic state, or the "khilafah," has a long record of anti-Semitism. For example, in August 2004, Tanzeem's Pakistan-based leader, Israr Ahmed, warned during an appearance at the Peshawar Press Club that "the evil genius of the Jews and the world's only superpower, America, had joined hands" to "eliminate [Islam] from the face of the earth."The Investigative Project notes that Tanzeem-e-Islami has a North American branch called the Islamic Organization of North America.
The author above who is obviously a shill for Islamist interests in Pakistan notes the following...
Samir’s father Mr. Zafar Khan is a respected Islamic scholar who was once the Ameer of the Islamic Organization of North America.So who was it again that was the basis of Samir's misguidance?
The author then continues to assert that al-qaeda does not exist and in the next breath states that Samir was a member of al-Qaeda. Repeat after me, Osama bin-Laden is NOT IN PAKISTAN! We swear.
The argument is not so much over the goal but the means to the goal. Tanzeem claims it wants to implement the same goals as al-Qaeda yet it wants to do it peacefully.
Investigative Project: Ahmad's views are not limited to anti-Jewish rhetoric. He's also a leading advocate of Islamic supremacy and the revival of the Caliphate. A simple trip to the Islamic Organization of North America's website would have led the FBI to articles calling for this. Some of the links are now defunct (perhaps due to bad press from the National Post), but their content can be judged clearly by their titles. According to the National Post, the Tanzeem-e-Islami's "goal is to establish the system of social justice of the Caliphate [Islamic state] firstly in Pakistan and then in the whole world," and that Ahmad's "ideal state" would include the following three principles:Tanzeem advocates that peaceful inner struggle Jihad to destroy the Jews and rule the world. That same peaceful inner struggle that we see every day in Pakistan."(1) Sovereignty belongs to Almighty Allah alone; (2) No legislation can be done at any level that is totally or partially repugnant to Koran and Sunnah, and; (3) Full citizenship of the state is for the Muslims only."
Halloween Video: Scariest Movie EVAH!
Okay, it isn't that scary. But when I first saw it, I was 7 or 8. And no, that wasn't when it first came out in the 50's. I saw it on TV in the 70's. It scared the bejeezus out of me. Every time I looked out a window, I just knew it was out there, just below the window frame out of sight, and in any second it would start oozing in around the edges...
Military Dhimmitude Training
New military training teaches troops to eat and drink everything a Muslim host gives them, else they might imply it's possibly poisoned and offend their Muslim host.
Troops also trained not the spit or urinate towards Mecca.
Islamism and Sadism
In free democracies, governments are accountable to the people and serve at the people’s pleasure. In Islamic theocracy, governments are accountable only to Allah and the people must serve at the pleasure of the government. And one can see the result of Islamic total or partial rule in fifty-six or so countries which rank among the highest nations of the world on every index of misery.Well I'm sure that's not their fault, I mean everyone knows that a tiny minority of a tiny minority of Da Jooos are responsible for several billion people not being able to find their ass with both hands.
But Will They Be Graded Or Just Given "Twinkle Fingers"?
SEATTLE – A day after Occupy Seattle moved to the campus, instructors at Seattle Central Community College planned to begin teaching classes in support of the group.
The classes, scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. Sunday, were to be held on the Plaza at SCCC and include such subjects as "Why We Support Occupy," "Legislative Lobbying," "The Art of the Protest Sign" and "Filming to Document Human Rights Violations."
Classes will continue throughout the night.

#OccupyOakland Protester: Yeah, We Were Throwing Bottles And Rocks, But The Police Shouldn't Have Responded Since They Had Protective Gear On...
(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit.)
I'm sure the cops were wearing bullet proof vests as well, you dumb cow, but that doesn't mean they should allow people to shoot at them.
Obama supports the protesters.

It's the lack of brains that cause their suffering. Brains ease the pain, but they have none. That's why they attack conservatives.

#OccupyDenver: Protester Tries To Push A Motorcycle Cop Over; Gets Arrested
It's times like this I think the police should have a 5 minute grace period to just beat the living hell out of a suspect.
Yep, just like the Tea Party... If a video emerged of the Tea Party harassing and assaulting a black cop, the media would have a field day with claims of racism. Hell, the media accuses the Tea Party of racism when videotape proves otherwise.
BTW, the "bird" the woman said the police shot with a rubber bullet was actually a protester who climbed a tree.
Gateway Pundit has more, including this very biased news report. Notice how, in these videos, it's the protesters who instigate and provoke the police, but they always claim they were just innocently standing there when police attacked. Unfortunately for them, most of it is always caught on tape.
Then they stupidly post the videos with their narrative, hoping viewers will only see their point of view. Sorry, doesn't work that way.

#OWS: Anti-Semitic, Folsom Street Fair Types & Che Guevara Lovin At #OccupySF (Market Street)
Noooo, not antisemitism again? I just posted 3 videos and now this? Oh, and watch out for the nekiid dudes towards end of video. Kinda like Zombies "Folsom Street Fair" posts, but just a glimpse. I guess this YouTube user has never viewed Zombies images...
As DMartyr reminds us:here.
He told me yes, he was aware of the Folsom Street Fair. He definitely is something else and makes my day with his videos. Very subtle, doesn't get angry and brings out the "best" in anti-Semites.

Dear Israel, The Death Penalty for Terrorists Is A Must
The bast**ds who murdered the Fogel family were not sentenced to death because "that would make them martyrs". What do you think they are now?
Okay, okay, let’s all stand up and say it together: We are appalled at the kind of Jews who deface graves, burn down mosques and spray-paint hate slogans. I don’t know a single person in this country who disagrees or could find any way to excuse, condone or rationalize such indecent behavior.Israel won't harm their "image" if the death penalty is used. Anything Israel does is wrong, so why not? The terrorists still will be the darling no matter if they are dead or alive.
Do we feel better now? I know what would make me feel better: never having to read another self-righteous, one-sided demonization of “settlers” or another hand-wringing, groveling apologia from my government. Although I suppose the words have to be said, they do no good, except to make the writer or speaker feel superior. They don’t illuminate the problem or in any way set us on a road to redemption.
Instead, let us all open up the books and look directly at the pictures in this bloody album, something we Jews in Israel are loath to do, preferring – if we agree to look at all – a soft-focus lens, or, better still, to shift focus completely, like the post-bus-bombing haste to pick up body parts, wash away blood and hide the charred metal carcasses before, God forbid!, a foreign reporter can snap a picture.
See, we are back to normal, whoever-is-in-charge seems to be saying with a smirk of self-congratulation. Good as new. Don’t make a fuss. Suck it up.
That actually works for most of us in Israel, most of the time. But there are those few who find it hard to move on, who want closure of some kind, call it justice, retaliation or revenge. That said, very few of them are arsonists or the ones with the spray cans.
Those are mostly idiot kids, or the kind of criminal element that always finds its way into extremist circles in all countries, religions and movements. The ones that concern me are the normal people forced to face extreme circumstances, who could very well be pushed over the edge.
Let’s start with the people of Itamar[...]
On September 13, Hakim was sentenced to five consecutive life sentences. Explaining their decision not to invoke the death penalty, the judges said: “The imprisoned criminal, whose life would be taken after being sentenced to death, might turn into a martyr, a shahid in their terms, with all the meanings that are attached to it.”
Dear judges, so what? He’ll go on the PA national heroes list, with every other suicide bomber and other scum. He’ll have a street named after him in Gaza. Isn’t that better than making him into an incentive for yet another terrorist kidnapping, subjecting us all for years to the pleas of desperate, grieving parents, and inevitably opening the doors and setting him free? As if that decision weren’t enough, last week residents of Awarta were permitted by Israeli authorities to enter Itamar to harvest their olives. The result could certainly have been foretold. Residents of Itamar, who firmly believe that Amjad used the last harvest to scout their homes and plan his barbaric slaughter, claimed that the Awarta villagers had drawn fingers across their throats and told them they’d be “Fogeled.”[Read the rest..]

Taliban Attack Kills 13 Americans and 4 Afghans in Kabul
I'm sure that the Taliban will tell you about it, see below.
Every Time the Taliban Kills Someone It's With the Help of VADS Hosting in Malaysia ***Bumped*** ***updated***
But note the Taliban's tweets are all to links. I mean that's the primary use for twitter. To share links to websites where the actual propaganda is located.
The tweets link primarily to two websites:
http://alemara1.com/ and http://shahamat-english.com.
A little research into those websites reveal they are both hosted, in violation of UN sanctions, by VADS hosting in Malaysia. See the contact info at the link. I find that the email addresses that VADS lists on its whois records to be pretty much useless. But here they are as well.
For additional feedback to our Malaysian friends here is the link to the Malaysian embassy in Washington DC as well as the Ambassador's email.
Express your dissatisfaction with them for aiding those who kill our soldiers in Afghanistan. As always please be polite and to the point but above all please participate.
In addition to hosting there are two other assets in question here. The domain records themselves. Taking down the host is bothersome for the Taliban, but disabling and freezing the DNS records forces the Taliban to buy a new domain name in order to keep publishing their propaganda. An even more effective countermeasure.

Update: One additional thought, although the registrations appear to be in Afghanistan the Taliban's online communications are known to reside in Pakistan.
You are violating Malaysian and International law by providing business services to "The Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan", better know as the Taliban.
The following U.N. Security Council Resolutions prohibit any individual or company from doing any business with the Taliban: 1267 (1999), 1333 (2000), 1390 (2002), 1455 (2003), 1526 (2004), 1617 (2005), 1735 (2006) and 1822 (2008). Specifically, the resolutions order member countries to "freeze without delay the funds and other financial assets or economic resources, including funds derived from property owned or controlled directly or indirectly" of the Taliban. Malaysia also has domestic laws implementing the above UN Resolutions.

Just Like The Tea Party... (Bumped)
Just like the Tea Party...
Oh, and crapping on cars, attacking police, and the rapes, the trash, the clueless morons, the sex & drugs, the pervs exposing themselves to children, desecrating the flag & war memorials, embracing communism, getting Nazi endorsements, the anti-Semitism, the spitting on people, the mindless chanting, promoting sexual perversions, faking injuries, abusing local business owners, demanding free stuff...
Update II: Had to add the arson, the child shields, the drug overdoses, harassing & intimidating local businesses, the lying, fire bombing buildings, pushing old ladies down stairs, the deaths, the fatal shootings, murder, the spreading of diseases, STDs, throwing and flinging bodily fluids at non-protesters, the necessity of segregating women to protect them from sexual predators, stockpiling weapons to use against Law Enforcement, the strippers, shooting at the White House...
Update III: Don't forget the Ring worm & scabies outbreak, the terrorist threats, the thugs terrorizing young children walking to school, the hateful anti-space alien & anti-reptilian rhetoric, breaking & entering then stealing furniture to use in camp, the animal abuse, physically attacking those who refuse to join their cause, deliberately denying right to work, hosting pornographic movie shoot, the Health code violations, stealing each others' lunch, abandoned children, lynching, peeing on cross and then stealing from church that offered them shelter...
Otherwise, just like the Tea Party...

#OccupyNewHampshire Protester Charged With Pimping Young Girl
MANCHESTER - A city woman is accused of pimping a 16-year-old girl she met in Victory Park during the Occupy NH demonstrations.
Justina Jensen, 23, of 341 Hanover St., is charged with felony prostitution. Police allege Jensen met a teen at the local protest, which is an offshoot of Occupy Wall Street, and used the Internet to arrange a first liaison for the girl with a man who turned out to be an undercover police officer.

Video: Bosnian Terrorist Gets Shot in Front of US Embassy
I don't know if you've seen the other videos of the shooter today at the US embassy in Bosnia, but it's pretty uninteresting. They guy is literally walking around on the street for half an hour. Just pacing back and forth. Meanwhile, the cops mostly cower a block away.
What gives with that? Are they, like their counterparts in Norway, unarmed? Or are they just waiting for their version of the SWAT team to arrive?
In any event, here's a video that mashes a couple of different angles of the Islamist terrorist getting shot by a sniper. It's mildly graphic, but I wouldn't rate it more than PG-13.
Boston Terror Trial Update: Mehanna Viewed Osama bin Laden as "Real Father"
Interesting arguments made today in the trial of Boston online jihadi and blogger, Tarek Mehanna:
By moderating online chats from the “cushy bedroom” of his parents’ Sudbury home about the monster he thought of as his “real father,” 9/11 mastermind Osama bin Laden, and translating bin Laden’s recorded calls to arms into English subtitles, assistant U.S. Attorney Aloke Chakravarty said Mehanna, 29, “viewed himself as part of the media department of the terror group." ...Mehanna's lawyer is arguing that working for al Qaeda is "free speech".
“It meant killing, it meant bullets, it meant martyrdom,” said Chakravarty, noting that in the summer of 2005, al-Qaeda “personally solicited” Mehanna to translate works by leader Ayman al-Zawahri.
I guess he's never heard of "sedition".
Jihad Supporting Kent State Prof Yells "Death to Israel!"
During the Q&A time following a speech given mby a former Israeli diplomat at Kent State, Professor of History Julio Pinto stormed out shouting "Death to Israel".
You may remember Julio Pinto for his writings on the "Jihadi News Service" which described itself like this:
We are a jihadist news service, and provide battle bispatches, training manuals, and jihad videos to our brothers worldwide. All we want is to get Allah’s pleasure. We will write "Jihad" across our foreheads, and the stars. The angels will carry our message throughout the world.So, to learn that he's shouting "Death to Israel"? That's not so surprising.
E-mails Show Kent State Professor Supporting Terror, Claimed Knowledge of Planned Terror Attacks
Terror Supporter Teaching at Kent State
Kent State Still in Denial Mode About Jihadi Professor
Kent State Prof Praises 9/11 "Martyrs"?
Professor At Kent State Preaches Jihad on Website
Kent State Jihad Professor's pro-al Qaeda Website Down
Once again, I feel the need to point out that members of the Tea Party never did anything like this.Well better him than me.
Occupy Madison has temporarily been denied an extension in their protesting permit because members of the movement violated "public health and safety conditions." The group also did not properly fill out the form.
City officials cited several specific reasons for their decision. The most notable was repeated complains from a nearby hotel, which stated that protesters were "publicly masturbating" in full view of passersby.
Got to be quick around here.
Ohio Teacher Stacy Schuler Gets Prison - Updated
(Lebanon, Ohio) After a four-day bench trial, Warren County Judge Robert Peeler sentenced former teacher Stacy Schuler to four years in prison. Judge Peeler said he believes Schuler has mental problems but doesn't believe she's insane.
Ohio Teacher Claims She Was Insane During Sex and Doesn't Remember
[Previous 10/26/11 post]
(Lebanon, Ohio) A 33-year-old physical education teacher formerly at Mason High School, Stacy Schuler, is currently on trial in Warren County Common Pleas Court facing 19 sex and alcohol offenses involving at least five male students.
Schuler has pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity and waived her right for a jury trial. The case will be decided by Judge Robert Peeler.
Schuler's attorneys have stated that psychological issues prevented her from knowing what she was doing and the boys took advantage of her. Schuler contends she doesn't remember the sex.
Although Schuler claims insanity, testimony this week indicates that she was planning to plead insanity if her behavior became public. The trial continues today with the defense presenting its case. (More….)
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Napolitano Doesn't Know What Anti-Jihadist Bloggers Have Known For Years
Had the Department of Homeland Security ran a simple Google search on his name, they would have seen the danger in appointing this man any security clearance within the department.
At a hearing on October 26, 2011 - just two days ago, Napolitano feigns ignorance at Elibiary's radical ties:
Added: In 2004, Elibiary was one of the speakers at a conference to honor Ayatollah Khomeini as a "great Islamic visionary." For those of you who don't know, Khomeini issued a fatwa that included the following:
"A man can marry a girl younger than nine years of age, even if the girl is still a baby being breastfed. A man, however is prohibited from having intercourse with a girl younger than nine, other sexual acts such as foreplay, rubbing, kissing and sodomy is allowed. A man having intercourse with a girl younger than nine years of age has not committed a crime, but only an infraction, if the girl is not permanently damaged. If the girl, however, is permanently damaged, the man must provide for her all her life. But this girl will not count as one of the man's four permanent wives. He also is not permitted to marry the girl's sister."

Famous Egyptian Actor Slaps Woman In Face
Egyptian movie star Omar Sharif shocked onlookers at the Doha Tribeca Film Festival in Qatar on Thursday when he appeared to slap a woman in the face.
The Washington Post includes this translation:
“My dear!” Sharif exclaimed in Arabic, swatting at the lady, “I told you I’d get to you afterwards! I just said that and you’re standing here. Put something in your brain!” But then, having posed solo as requested by the photographers, he gamely turned back to the woman. “I’m sorry,” he said (according to the translation by our colleague Dina ElBoghdady), and leaned in to smile warmly for a photo with her.
#OccupyBoston Removes Finance Officers For Using Funds To "Appropriate Channels Of Power And Channels Of Influence”
In other words - bribery. And I'd be willing to wager those receiving the funds are in the union.
BOSTON (CBS) – Occupy Boston has pulled two members from its finance team for their lack of transparency and accountability.
The group, which is seeking more transparency in financial institutions has excluded Paul Carnes and Sidney Sherrel from financial decisions.
The pair allegedly didn’t follow the group’s rules when it comes to spending money and organizing a fundraiser.
Occupy member Nadeem Mazen says the actions of one of the accused were in poor taste.
He says Paul was using his spending, “To appropriate channels of power and channels of influence.”

Bosnia: Gunman Opens Fire At U.S. Embassy, Sniper Takes Him Out
ARAJEVO, Bosnia -- A gunman who fired shots at the US embassy in the Bosnian capital Sarajevo on Friday was shot dead by a police sniper, SENS news agency reported[More..]No one at the embassy were injured. Two police officers did sustain injuries.
Update by Howie: It appears the terrorist was not killed only injured in the incident and is in custody.
Iraq War Veteran Injured at #OWS Oakland Founder of IHateTheMarineCorps.Com
First, I wish Scott Olson a speedy recovery and the incident surrounding his injury fully investigated. There are too many "theories" surrounding what happened. Thankfully he won't be a "martyr" for #OWS protesters, although the story will continue to get a lot of play. His bloody image made for a "nice" fundraising plea for IVAW.
Scott Olsen is the Marine Corps veteran critically injured at Occupy Oakland Tuesday night, during a confrontation between the protesters and the police. The latest news is good: his condition has been upgraded from critical to fair and he is apparently conscious and able to respond to doctors and family members. I sincerely wish him a full recovery, and I also hope that a proper investigation is conducted to determine whether police misconduct is responsible for his injuries.h/t @JammieWF
But I ran across something this evening that may add a new dimension to this story. It has been widely reported that Olsen is a member of Iraq Veterans Against the War. But apparently his opposition to the U.S. military and the Marine Corps in which he served runs a little deeper.
The site is no longer live, but Olsen was the founder of IHateTheMarineCorps.com, a private user forum apparently dedicated to bashing the Marine Corps. (click to enlarge)[More]
Also, Pat Dollard has a video of the incident including another vid from MSNBC Analyst Donnie Deutsch saying "Occupy Wall Street needs a Kent State moment". His wish almost came true. The Tea Party repulses him too, but you already are aware of that I suppose.
This ain't Hell has more on the #OccupyOakland protesters
So just like in Indianapolis OWS planners in Oakland reviled why the Police has been involved in there protest. Why that this has nothing to do with peaceful decent. It is about shutting down all operations in the cities regardless who it affects.
#OccupyPhoenix Neo-Nazi With AR-15
Granted, I agree with what he said about disastrous Fast & Furious "gunwalker program" but, what the hell? I suppose "Sgt" Shamar Thomas, the darling of the #OWS movement, got the protection ball rolling with his "outrage over police brutality".
If you Google JT Ready you will come up with "so? He was at rallies and was "endorsed by the Tea Party" coming from the likes of Media Matters/Democrat Underground etc. Ready wore patriotic garb and infiltrated Tea Party rallies. If you remember, a "lot" of phonies deliberately attempted to blend in with true Tea Party patriots in order to discredit the movement.
I suppose Neo-Nazis don't need to hide at #Occupy events. Only teabaggers are raaaacist!!
At the #OccupyAtlanta protest, this man was packing a AK-47, AP buried this down at the bottom of a report about the #OccupyOakland protests:
Mayor Kasim Reed had been supportive of the protests, twice issuing an executive order allowing them to remain.Why was the man there? He didn't agree with the protesters but wanted to protect the rights of people to protest
Reed said on Wednesday that he had no choice to arrest them because he believed things were headed in a direction that was no longer peaceful. He cited a man seen walking the park with an AK-47 assault rifle.
Drones kill al-Qaeda, Taliban leaders in Pakistan’s tribal region
U.S waited to release the names until they were sure on confirmation.
A pair of U.S. missiles killed two al-Qaeda operations planners in Pakistan’s northwestern tribal region this month, part of a 48-hour fusillade that also killed another al-Qaeda operative and a top deputy in the militant Haqqani network, U.S. officials confirmed Thursday.Matter of time before we hear of Ayman Zawahiri's death.......... just a matter of time.
The deaths were disclosed on the same day that a suspected CIA drone killed five leaders of a Pakistani Taliban unit linked to attacks on international forces in Afghanistan, according to local authorities in Pakistan. The Thursday strike brought to five the number of U.S. missile attacks in the lawless tribal area since Oct. 1.
Separate strikes Oct. 14 killed Abu Miqdad al-Masri and Abd al-Rahman al-Yemeni, two al-Qaeda veterans tied to the group’s senior leadership and actively involved in planning operations overseas, said two senior U.S. officials familiar with details of CIA operations. The officials said Masri was a former associate of Osama bin Laden.
“They were key figures important to what is left of the network,” said one of the two U.S. officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss the highly classified CIA drone program.
Release of the names was delayed while U.S. officials sought to verify the deaths, the officials said. Other alleged senior militant operatives killed during a flurry of missile strikes Oct.13-14 were previously identified as Ahmed Omar Abdul Rahman, also known as Saifullah, the son of the blind Egyptian cleric tied to the 1993 bombing of New York’s World Trace Center; and Janbaz Zadran, a high-ranking member of the Haqqani network, which battles U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Three letters sent Tuesday and obtained by Fox News show the committee's investigation into the cleric, who was killed in a CIA-led operation in Yemen on Sept. 30, has broadened since his death.
In the first letter, Rep. Peter King, R-N.Y., chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, wrote to Lt. Gen. Ronald Burgess, director of the Defense Intelligence Agency, which is responsible for directing interrogations of detainees in military custody at Guantanamo, including the self-described architect of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed.
King asked the agency to question detainees involved in plotting 9/11 about the possible roles of Eyad al-Rababah of Jordan, Daoud Chehazeh of Syria and Awlaki in the terror attack.
"I understand that these detainees have not been interrogated in several years, and certainly not since Awlaki's role within Al Qaeda became widely acknowledged in 2009," King wrote.
Al-Rababah and Chehazeh were first profiled by the Fox News Specials Unit in "Secrets of 9/11," which aired in May. The investigation outlined the domestic support network that allowed the Sept. 11, 2001, hijackers to move around the U.S. with ease.
It also presented new and compelling evidence that Awlaki was an overlooked player in the Sept. 11 plot who slipped through the FBI's grasp after the attack.
Learning From Hamas: How #Occupy Uses Human Shields-Veterans, The Young, The Old, The Disabled
When the activists of Occupy Oakland attacked police en masse on October 25th, throwing paint bombs and provoking volleys of tear gas, the images galvanized the Occupy movement as never before.Lengthy article but is a must read
“Come see the violence inherent in the system!” they have all but shouted, using wild allegations of police brutality, and fallacious arguments about First Amendment violations, to build solidarity among scattered activists.
The outrage is sincere–but so is the jubilation.
Clashes with the police affirm the activistsʼ fantasy–that they are the leading a revolution, that the truths they speak are so potent that the “1 percent” must use force to suppress them.
The clashes also assuage the jealousy–what Harvard literature professor Philip Fisher once called “nightmare envy”– western radicals feel when watching the Arab Spring, where the struggles are deadly real.

Meet Canadian Air Transport Security Authority Employee Of The Month!
All the hippies/leftists/communists etc. that are now part of the #OWS type protests brings to mind how those same type of groups treated our finest and bravest during the Vietnam War.
I was then pleasantly surprised to see images from Vietnam on the U.S. Army flicker account today:

A poster warns Jerusalemites to look out for terrorists who were released in Shalit deal.
A new volunteer force called the "Capital Guard" has begun taking steps against the terrorists released into Jerusalem in the Gilad Shalit deal[...]Liberal groups to start screaming "help, the terrorists are being oppressed" in 5...4...3....2
"Dear Jew! If you see one of the terrorists in a crowded place, it is important that you notify those surrounding you whom they are next to!!"
The poster also adds a request – "Dear citizen, please act only in accordance with the law."
The poster will soon be joined by another one, showing the locations of the terrorists' homes.
King told Arutz Sheva before Shalit's release was implemented that the Capital Guard will follow the terrorists about and document their activities. "If they board the light train we will announce on a megaphone that there is a terrorist on board," King explained
Noted Supporter of Osama bin Laden Indicted for Threatening South Park Creators: It's a Zionist Conspiracy!
An image created & hosted by Revolution Muslim in 2009
The co-founder of Revolution Muslim and Islam Policy, Jesse "Younes Abdullah Muhammad" Morton, has released a lengthy diatribe from his Moroccon prison where he awaits extradition for making threats against the creators of South Park. The essay, posted on the website he once ran, sounds like it was written by a 9th grader who has read a few Chomsky books and attended a free lecture or two down at the used book & hemp supply shop where grad students in American studies hang out.
But in between incoherent rants about the First amendment and Samuel Huntington's Clash of Civilizations, Younes reveals who the "real" culprits are in his prosecution:
That, the document is also a byproduct of an Orwellian world is evident from its very first complaint. it claims that one now defund organization, revolution Muslim was started with in the publically stated goals of establishing Islamic law in the U.S., destroying Israel and taking Al-Qaeda message to the masses” such a statement is not only completely false, it is cut and paste from the website of the Anti-defamation league, a pro-Israeli, Zionist organization that can hardly be considered a reliable source....Watch out ... the Zionists ... they're .... everywhere!
It is not impossible to ascertain who her advisors were; I started receiving calls from a coalition of Zionist lawyers from the beginning of the affair. Such reality points toward the real nature of free speech in the contemporary reality; you are free to speak as long content poses absolutely no threat to the powers that be...

#OWS: #OccupyMARINES Facebook "Like' Person Doesn't Have A Clue About Our Military
He/she/it posted a picture of a British soldier thinking it was an American soldier. Image will probably look familiar to those who follow pro-Hamas, pro-Pali posting. Al Qaeda supporters also use the below image as well as Taliban supporters. Hell all assmaggots use images like this so this person fits right in.
Someone pointed it out to him, which is good, because I was gonna join to do just that:

Tea Party Paid For Right To Protest While #Occupy Protests For Free
Yet even more of a double-standard in our society. Those who wish exercise their rights respectfully and within the law must pay for that privilege. Others are allowed the same rights and privileges at no cost.
The Tea Party paid for the same services #Occupy protesters receive for free:
Richmond, Va. — The Richmond tea party is demanding a refund of about $10,000 from the city, claiming it unfairly charged them for rallies while allowing the Occupy protesters to use the same space for several weeks for free.
The political organization is sending the city an invoice for the charges incurred for three rallies held in Kanawha Plaza over the past three years. The Occupy protesters have been camped in the plaza since Oct. 15.
Richmond Tea Party spokeswoman Colleen Owens says it's not fair that her group had to pay fees for permits, portable toilets, police presence and emergency personnel. The group also had to purchase a $1 million insurance policy.
Tea party groups across the nation have raised similar concerns since the protests spread from New York earlier this month.
Noted Islamist Extremist to Lecture on Star Wars Episode V
Trevor "Shaikh Abdullah Faisal" Forrest served time in the UK for calling for the murder of non-Muslims before being deported back to Jamaica. So, when I learned that he would be speaking about The Empire Strikes back at an upcoming online conference sponsored by Islam Policy (formerly "Revolution Muslim"), a website once run by several convicted terrorists, I got a tingle up my leg.
More importantly, I can't wait to hear Shaikh Faisal's thoughts on Luke yelling, "Noooooooo!" in the big Vader reveal scene on the Blue Ray edition. Surely George Lucas deserves hellfire for this abomination!!
Update: Many thanks to Programing Director Gavin Spittle for changing the image. Hopefully, in the future, the journalist involved will be more careful when selecting file images to accompany stories.

CBS Houston reported a story about a Texas hospital sending an illegal immigrant patient back to Mexico for long term treatment. If CBS's liberal bias in the story was not evident enough, take a look at the file photo the "journalist" decided to use with the story:
One commenter writes:
I’m a medical student there and I can say with 100% assurance, those are NOT the flags that are being flown at UTMB. Our flags are in perfect condition and have a spotlight on them at night. The picture is bunk.
So, why would CBS Houston choose such a disrespectful image for the article? Is it to somehow demonize Texas as being un-American or unpatriotic in their quest to transfer this illegal immigrant? Is it a subliminal message that our values are disintegrating? Or maybe they are gloating over the successes of the Obama Administration to destroy America from within to pave way for a new, socialist society?
The person who wrote the article, and presumable selected the image, opted not to include his/her name. That's not a surprise. But CBS Houston should be ashamed to post such an image that is not only offensive, but completely unrelated to the article.
Hmmmm: OFAC Lists a Bunch of Iranian Shipping Lines as Weapons Proliferators
Check this out. Notice that none of the Iranian shipping companies are in Iran? Mostly they are in Panama and Cypress. If you need stuff to build a nuclear missile, you'll have to have some way to ship the parts.
Aaron had noted a ramping up over at OFAC in listing Iranian entities. To be honest, I thought he was overstating the case. OFAC has historically been very far behind the curve on these matters when they should be out front. So, maybe they're playing catch up?
For the newbies, OFAC stands for Office of Control and Finance and it's the agency within the Treasury Department tasked with making sure US companies do not do business with "listed" foreign entities. Entities such as the Taliban and Iran's Qods Force.

Homeland Security Advisor Shopping Around "Islamophobia" Story
Department of Homeland Security Advisory Council member Mohamed Elibiary has apparently been shopping around official use only type documents to media outlets in hopes that they would run a story accusing the Texas Department of Public Safety of "Islamophobia". The funny thing is even members of the MSM wouldn't take the story since the accusations were apparently groundless.
But Patrick Poole over at PJM seems to think that Elibiary may have been at least partially motivated to discredit Rick Perry. I don't know about that, but the Islamophobe meme has become just mainstream enough that I'm a little surprised the reporters spiked the story.
Shocking News! Taliban Says Pakistan's ISI #1 Source of Military Aid
Pakistan's security service provides weapons and training to Taliban insurgents fighting U.S. and British troops in Afghanistan, despite official denials, Taliban commanders say, in allegations that could worsen tensions between Pakistan and the United States.US aid dollars which are intended to fight terrorism are actually diverted to kill American soldiers.
A number of middle-ranking Taliban commanders revealed the extent of Pakistani support in interviews for a BBC Two documentary series, "Secret Pakistan," the first part of which was being broadcast on Wednesday.
A former head of Afghan intelligence also told the program that Afghanistan gave Pakistan's former president, Gen. Pervez Musharraf, information in 2006 that Osama bin Laden was hiding in northern Pakistan close to where the former al Qaeda leader was eventually killed by U.S. special forces in May.
...One Taliban commander, Mullah Qaseem, told the BBC the important things for a fighter were supplies and a hiding place.
"Pakistan plays a significant role. First they support us by providing a place to hide which is really important. Secondly they provide us with weapons," he said, according to excerpts provided by the BBC.
Other Taliban commanders described how they and their fighters were, and are, trained in a network of camps on Pakistani soil.
According to a commander using the name Mullah Azizullah, the experts running the training are either members of the ISI or have close links to it.
"They are all the ISI's men. They are the ones who run the training. First they train us about bombs; then they give us practical guidance," he said.
We're financing a war against ourselves.
No more US aid to Pakistan! NOT. ONE. DIME.
Iranian IED's in Iraq Used U.S. Parts
When I first read the teaser to this story I thought: OMFG, some traitor in Minnesota was selling the Iranians parts!
But that's not what happened. What happened was that four guys in Singapore and an Iranian accomplice bought the parts from the US company and then shipped then to Iran. From Iran, the parts were then used in IED's to kill and maim US troops.
So, these guys aren't traitors. Just enemies. In either case, why aren't we lining them up against the wall?
Radio-control parts hidden in roadside bombs in Iraq have been traced to a company in Minnesota, prompting a federal grand jury Tuesday to indict five people in an alleged smuggling ring that sent up to 6,000 of the devices from this country to Iran for use against U.S. military personnel.Thanks to Kenny who has more.
The alleged plot, run by a group of citizens of Singapore, was designed to skirt U.S. laws against conducting business with Iran, authorities said, adding that they hoped to extradite the defendants for trial in Washington...
Sixteen of the radio-frequency modules were found by coalition forces in unexploded IEDs, or improvised explosive devices, between May 2008 and July 2010 in Iraq, and were part of the 6,000 modules allegedly shipped through Iran.
Officials said the modules included encryption capabilities with a range of 40 miles for transmitting data wirelessly when configured with antennae.

Blue Ice Leaves 'Smelly Brown Residue' In #OccupyLasVegas Camp

LAS VEGAS - A group of several dozen “Occupy Las Vegas” protesters camping on Clark County land located under the final approach to Runway 19 at McCarran International Airport today narrowly missed being injured when a 50 lb. slab of “blue ice” reportedly landed within feet of their tents. [...]
Clark County Director of Aviation Randall Walker was immediately notified and dispatched airport personnel to the campsite, but witnesses report that the blue ice had melted by the time officials arrived leaving only a smelly brown residue. (Source)

#OccupyBaltimore Discouraging Rape Victims From Going To Police
Instead, they would prefer the victim report the incident to "the Security Committee" which will thoroughly investigate the allegation and ensure both parties will receive proper counseling.
The Security Committee is, no doubt, a crack team of highly trained criminal investigators that have had at least 20 or 30 minutes of investigative instruction.
If found guilty of rape, the accused loses his turn banging on the drums. (Hey! He should have thought about those consequences when he decided to bang her instead!) The most extreme penalty for the crime, as in a particularly violent rape - or for false accusations if the victim cannot
provide four male witnesses prove the allegation - is banishment from the #OccupyBaltimore gathering.
Careful there, don't get Amnesty International involved...
It is very telling that sexual assault is apparently so frequent at these #Occupy gathers that such memo has to be distributed in the first place. Obama says these rallies are just like the Tea Party. Funny, I don't recall any rapes happening at Tea Parties...

Troops Taking it to the Haqqani Network
Below is an ISAF press release on Operation Shamshir and Operation Knife Edge which have been targeting Haqqani strongholds in Afghanistan. The more Haqqanis dead, the better. Too bad our "allies" the Pakistanis still aren't helping us root out the most dangerous of the various Taliban groups.
KABUL, Afghanistan (October 24, 2011) – The International Security Assistance Force spokesperson, German Brigadier General Carsten Jacobson, announced Monday that due to recent operations, Operation Shamshir and Operation Knife Edge, insurgent activities have been greatly impacted in the east and south of Kabul.
“We have concluded that 20 Haqqani affiliated insurgents have been killed or captured during these operations,” said Jacobson. “About half of these insurgents have been identified as leaders and the remainder were identified as facilitators and/or improvised explosive device makers.”
Jacobson goes on to say that the Afghan National Security Forces lead both operations while ISAF provided the support they needed to complete the mission.
“Operation Shamshir with the ANSF in the lead conducted clearing operations in the east and throughout the south of Kabul, contributing to increased disruption of the insurgency,” said Jacobson. “These offensive operations have impacted insurgent morale, caused localized disruption to operations, and forced insurgents to withdraw or hide to avoid capture.”
With more than 400 kilograms of homemade explosives, assorted weapons, munitions and computers seized during the two operations, insurgents are no longer able to adequately supply local attacks.
“The successes of Operations Shamshir and Knife Edge have opened opportunities for ANSF to build positive relationships with people from towns and villages formerly under the grip of insurgent organizations,” said Jacobson.
The main effort of combined operations will now return to normal framework operations in support of security objectives.
All of these events demonstrate the way in which Afghanistan is preparing, with its international partners, for a post 2014 environment in which Afghanistan is standing proudly on its own feet, said NATO Civilian Spokesman Christopher Chambers.
“Coalition forces will continue to degrade insurgent operations and support growing ANSF capabilities contributing to GIRoAs ability and commitment to provide security for the people of Afghanistan,” said Jacobson.
As we are now heading into the winter months, ISAF vows to continue to set the conditions for further growth in Afghan security capabilities.
“We will remain vigilant,” Jacobson said. “We will continue to secure vulnerable areas throughout the winter months and continue to interdict future spectacular attack planning.”
Jacobson reiterated that it is imperative that we continue to stand strong and ensure that the security measures we put in place remain mobile, agile and flexible to take the fight to the enemy.
“We cannot be divided in our cause for a free Afghanistan,” said Jacobson. “It is the hard work and dedication of the coalition and Afghan forces that will ensure freedom to Afghanistan.
Transition remains on course with President Karzai’s stated desire to have Afghan National Security Forces in the lead for security by the end of 2014.

Pak Taliban: Release Aafia Siddique or the Swiss Will Die
Ah, yes, more evidence that the Taliban are just "freedom fighters". It's just like that time that George Washington threatened to kill an Estonian couple if King George didn't release all American prisoners. Holding civilians from neutral countries hostage is just what "freedom fighters" do, right?
Here's the skinny:
'This is the announcement, a new announcement, for the Swiss government, for Pakistan government and for American government,' Och said as he held a local English newspaper dated September 15.I'm not blaming the hostages -- the barbarians in the Taliban are fully responsible for their fate -- but who on earth would ever visit Pakistan if they didn't have to?
'We are in danger here, and please let go Aafia Siddiqui from America, and so please let go the prisoners that Pakistan have from Taliban,' he said in the video watched by dpa correspondent.
'Let them go because we are in tension, we have much of problem. If you do not, I think, it is the last time we can talk to this government.' ...
Waliur Rehamn, deputy head of Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), an umbrella organization of more than a dozen militant outfits, said on July 29 that his organization was holding the couple....
The militant leader warned that if Aafia was not released, their Islamic court will decide the fate of the Swiss. He warned that the group would not hesitate to carry out any sort of punishment, an indirect reference to the past executions of Westerners.

Honor Killing Trial Opens in Canada
Mohammad Shafia, an Afghan immigrant, is accused of murdering his first wife Rona Mohammad and his three daughters Daughters Zanaib, 19, Sahar, 17, & Geeti, 13 because the lot had assimilated into Western society. Absolutely horrible:
“They committed treason on themselves. They betrayed humankind. They betrayed Islam. They betrayed our religion…they betrayed everything,” Shafia told Tooba, the murdered children’s mother....Honor killings are not unique among Muslim countries. What is unique is the notion a religion can be "betrayed" because the religious community is also a political community.
“I say to myself, ‘You did well.’ Were they come to life, I would do it again,” the wiretap recorded him saying.
Not all Muslims believe this, of course, but it is still an orthodox and mainstream point of view.

Libyan Rebels The Next Taliban?
The Libyan branch of Qaeda al Jihad is known as Libyan Islamic Fighting Group. As Libya reforms after its Arab spring hard line Islamic groups are sure to attempt to hijack the revolution.
Philly.com"There is no question that al Qaeda's Libyan franchise, Libyan Islamic Fighting Group, is a part of the opposition. It has always been Qaddafi's biggest enemy and its stronghold is Benghazi. What is unclear is how much of the opposition is al Qaeda/Libyan Islamic Fighting Group - 2 percent or 80 percent."Remember al-Qaada thrives on chaos. Their influence is strongest where central governments are weakest, have the least ability to police and enforce law of any kind.
It appears the U.S. Middle East policy has a schizophrenic nature to it, filled with blatant contradictions. Why are we on the side of al-Qaeda in Libya but against them in Iraq and Afghanistan?
And what type of government will these leaders create in the newly “liberated” Libya?
Its this kind of power vacuum that al-Qaeda in the past has sought as safe havens and places to train and impose their will by brute force and terror. Places like Afghanistan, Yemen, Iraq during the chaos following the fall of Saddam. Now Libya is a place of chaos and limited control. The perfect opportunity as al-Qaeda sees it.
A good number of boots on the ground belong to al-Qaeda and even if overall they are more moderate than the Afghan Taliban its doesn't take much to be more moderate than the Taliban.
This is the drawback with Obama's approach to Libya. We interfered with the process but only very weakly. It will be tough to muster the kind of influence and power in the country that can insure that Libya comes out of this at least somewhat better off than before.

GlobalPost correspondent Tracey Shelton said there is some question as to whether the instrument was a knife from the end of a gun, which Libyans call a Bicketti, or a utilitiy tool known as a Becker Knife and Tool, which is popularly known as a BKT.Ouch.

Two Attacks in Kenya
Violent Islamism seems to be on the march in Kenya. No, we don't know for sure if the attacks are from al Shabaab or their sympathizers yet, but they would be first on the list of usual suspects:
Grenade blasts at a blue-collar bar and a crowded bus stop rattled Nairobi on Monday, as the country worried whether al-Qaida linked militants from Somalia were carrying out their promise to launch reprisal attacks in Kenya's capital.
The attacks came only two days after the U.S. warned of "imminent" terror attacks. The U.S. warning had implied that the Somali group al-Shabab would carry out reprisals in response to Kenyan troops' invasion of Somalia in mid-October. The militants had promised to unleash terror attacks in Nairobi in retaliation for the offensive....
The first grenade blast toppled chairs and tables at a blue-collar bar near downtown Nairobi around 1:15 a.m. Monday, wounding 12 people. Later in the evening, a blast went off as throngs of people crowded the sidewalk and tried to jam their way onto raucous mini-busses known as matatus, the primary mode of transportation for Kenya's working class.
The Red Cross said one person was killed and eight wounded in the second attack.
Another Day Another Sharia State
the “number one” priority for the U.S. was that universal human rights, as well as rights for women, minorities, due process and transparency, be fully respected in Libya.Apparently someone in the Libyan resistance didn't get the memo.
Interim leader Mustafa Abdel Jalil said on Sunday, during his speech to the nation in Benghazi to formally declare the country's liberation from the ousted regime of Moammer Kadhafi, that sharia would be Libya's principal law.The Muslima is out of order. She needs to get back in the kitchen until her Daddy decides who's she is going to marry.
"Any law that violates sharia is null and void legally," he said, citing as an example the law on marriage passed during the slain dictator's 42-year tenure that imposed restrictions on polygamy, which is permitted in Islam.
"The law of divorce and marriage... This law is contrary to sharia and it is stopped," Abdel Jalil said.
..."It's shocking and insulting to state, after thousands of Libyans have paid for freedom with their lives, that the priority of the new leadership is to allow men to marry in secret," said Rim, 40, a Libyan feminist who requested anonymity.
"We did not slay Goliath so that we now live under the Inquisition," she told AFP.
But all kidding aside there really is no way for Sharia to comply with universal human rights, as well as rights for women, minorities, due process and transparency. They are oil and water.
For the record I don't agree with the Shaira BS they slipped into the Iraqi and Afghanistan constitutions either.

Guy Who Trash Talked Rusty's Mom Pleads Not Guilty to Terror Charges
No, there's no law against talking smack about my mom online. But there are consequences:
A high school honors student pleaded not guilty Monday to charges he helped the American terrorist dubbed "Jihad Jane" raise money and recruits for a Muslim holy war....Karma, it's a bitch.
Federal prosecutors allege that [Mohammad Hassan] Khalid tried to recruit men to wage a holy war in Europe and South Asia, and women with passports who could travel there. He had met a middle-aged Pennsylvania woman, Colleen LaRose, in online chat rooms when he was about 15, according to last week's indictment. LaRose was being watched by the FBI after posting YouTube videos in which she dubbed herself "Jihad Jane" and vowed to kill or die for the jihadist cause.

"Reform": Egyptian Sentenced to 3 Years for Mocking Islam Online
Yeah, I know what I just said about the choices we have in the Arab world. But still, I can be depressed about this if I want:
Egypt’s state media says a Cairo court has sentenced a man to three years in prison for postings on Facebook deemed to be inciting sectarianism and in contempt of Islam.I used to get really angry over stuff like this, but if I got angry every time someone was oppressed in the name of Islam I wouldn't be able to function.
The MENA state news agency said Saturday a the misdemeanor court found Ayman Mansour had intentionally mocked Islam and used “outrageous and scurrilous” language in describing the religion’s holy book, the Quran, and its prophet and believers.
I'm guessing this kind of thing is much more common than we believe.
Shocking News! No Gadhafi Autopsy
Nope not gonna happen.
Military commanders in the Libyan city of Misrata said on Saturday that no post-mortem would be carried out on the body of Moamer Kadhafi despite concerns over how the toppled dictator died.And also...
Kadhafi’s body had been stored in a vegetable market freezer overnight and was again put on display for hundreds of curious onlookers on Saturday...Haram.
The Arab World: It Ain't Switzerland
Here's the problem I'm having with some of my friends who point out that Islamists make up a portion of the opposition of [insert name of Arab country here], therefore any show of support for the opposition is de facto a support for Islamism.
Look, we are not talking here about the choice between Dictator X and liberal reformer Y. The choices in the world just aren't that clear cut.
I'd love for those to be our choices, but they're not. Given the choice between a dictator like Ghaddafi with American blood on his hands and an imperfect opposition movement, I choose the opposition.
Further, if the choice is between the enemy of my enemy spilling blood or my own troops, I choose the enemy of my enemy.
No, the enemy of my enemy is not my friend. He's my ally.
Better they die in a mutually beneficial cause then us.
The same principle holds in Yemen where a woman with ties to Islamists won the Nobel Peace prize. I don't give the Nobel Prize much credence as anything more than what Norwegian politicians think, but the reaction about Tawakkol Karman sharing in the prize has been, well, kinda stupid.
This isn't the choice between a pro-American dictator and Lockean liberals, it's the choice between a Pakistani like "ally" which pays lip service to the GWOT but who had deep ties to al Qaeda and Saudi style Islamists and those that oppose him. That the opposition is made up of other Islamists is just part of the game you play in the Arab world. It's also made up of socialists, Baathists, and whatever other insane and discredited ideology still lingering in the region.
Our own Jane has an article over at PJM about the controversy and sums it up nicely thus:
Those questioning Ms. Karman’s beliefs might do well to consider the positive impact of her work and the courage necessary to stand in Yemen as a woman and proclaim freedom as a birthright. These scholars may do better exploring broader issues like the long standing democratic consensus at the heart of the Yemeni revolution, President Saleh’s payments to al-Qaeda, and the Sana’a regime’s expansive criminal enterprises including gun running, currency forgery, drug smuggling, and, sadly, human trafficking.READ THE REST.

Stakelbeck on Terror: Hezbollah in Your Backyard
List of previous episodes here
Progressives, Islamists Huddle At Justice Department
Daily Caller[All emphasis mine]
Top Justice Department officials convened a meeting Wednesday where invited Islamist[radical jihadist...ed] advocates lobbied them for cutbacks in anti-terror funding, changes in agents’ training manuals, additional curbs on investigators and a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination[Umm, Islam is NOT a race...hello..ed].Eric "nation of cowards" Holder certainly will get right on this...after he works on fixing his part in Fast and Furious gun walker program.
The department’s “civil rights lawyers are top of the line — I say this with utter honesty — I know they can come up with a way” to redefine criticism as discrimination, said Sahar Aziz, a female, Egyptian-American lawyer.
“I’d be willing to give a shot at it,” said Aziz, who is a fellow at the Michigan-based Muslim advocacy group, the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding
The audience of Islamist [radical jihadist...ed]advocates and department officials included Tom Perez, who heads the department’s division of civil rights.
“We must continue to have the open and honest and critical dialogue that you saw in the robust debate,” Perez responded in an enthusiastic closing speech a few minutes after Aziz made her demands at the event.
“I sat here the entire time, taking notes,” Perez said. “I have some very concrete thoughts … in the aftermath of this.”
The meeting at George Washington University showcased the expanding alliance between American progressives and Islamists[radical jihadist...ed], said Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor in New York.
Progressives “are making these Islamist[radical jihadist..ed] groups into the [political] representatives of Muslims in the United States,” he told The Daily Caller. That elevation of Islamists[radical jihadist..ed] to a leadership role sidelines the majority of American Muslims who don’t want Islamist[radical jihadist..ed] leaders, as well as American Muslims who are female or gay, he said.[Well said..ed]
McCarthy investigated and prosecuted Egyptian-born Imam Omar Abdel-Rahman, dubbed “the blind sheik,” for urging Muslims to kill New Yorkers. Abdel-Rahman was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1996.[More...]
Carry on.. CAIR at #OccupyWallStreet and progressive dhimmis..
h/t Herr Wilson
Update on my prior post: #OccupyWallStreet: Who Is Marine Corps. Sgt. Shamar Thomas? (Updated).
After Shamar's antics, a Facebook group started: Marines Against Sgt. Shamar Thomas.
Now, another group has formed in support of the[sorry removed assmaggot and added his last name..I'm like that..reason for the] Thomas: OccupyMARINES.
The new group has at least posted important info on dress code, it lacks thereof..check the image further below:
Non-Active ‘Occupy’ Military Supporters OnlyYou gotta buy them from a "gasp" corporatist but heh, its for the better good of protesting evil Wall Street and corporations!
OccupyMARINES Are Organizing A Dress Code For All Non-Active ‘Occupy’ Military Supporters.

I will say my attempted drive bys that Vinnie, Proud Sonabitch requested fell flat. Which is good, they agreed with "protest all you want but don't wear a uniform, cammie, flags, or anything thereof when protesting."
Win? Dunno but it's a start.
If you are or were in the military and support #OccupyWallStreet I really don't want to know. I have the utmost respect for those who wear the uniform and if I knew I may have supported you individually in a post or something..I know you have freedom of speech..I would feel like icky. I appreciate your service but we are not on the same page if you support this movement.
All this occupy shite is crazy, Orwellian even.
Did I say unindicted co-conspirators in the Holy Land Foundation terrorism funding case, CAIR, also supports #OWS?
Will China Claim the Moon First?
by the time the America gets into gear to build its own moon base, large swaths of lunar territory may already be claimed, Bigelow said in a talk that the firebrand entrepreneur warned the audience would be "controversial."At the rate we're going Haiti will beat us to a claim. That is unless you buy all the Khinspiracy stuff about our military already having a base on the far side. Its either our military or the space aliens.
"Americans are still basking in the lunar glory from 40 years ago," Bigelow said. "But we don’t own one square foot of the damn place. NASA is a shadow of the space agency it once was in the 1960s and 1970s."
In contrast, he argued, China has the motivation and ability to win the next space race and claim ownership of much of the moon. Bigelow argued that international law would allow a nation to make such a claim, especially if it were able to enforce it through continuous human lunar presence. [Photos: China's First Space Station]
Owning the moon would be a windfall both financially and for international prestige, he said. Not only does it offer a jumping off point for further exploration of the solar system, but it also contains vast stores of valuable resources such as water and helium-3, a possible fuel for nuclear fusion.

Bizarre: #OccupyCharlotte Issues Automated, Anonymous Message After Banishing Group Leader
On one level, this is absurdly and childishly funny. These 'occupy' protesters are so adamant about equality and conformity, they feel it necessary to ensure no individual's voice is heard. So they use an automated system instead.
But on another level, it is a bit frightening. We are witnessing 1984 becoming a reality.
From CBS Charlotte:
Thomas Shope, 47, credited with helping to organize “Occupy Charlotte,” was exiled from the group for claiming leadership.
A YouTube video broadcasts the group’s reasoning with an automated voice speaking over classical piano.

All Occupiers Are Equal — But Some Occupiers Are More Equal Than Others
Animal Farm revisited.
Dissension among #OccupyWallStreet: Who would have thunk an Anarchical system void of leaders would produce divisions among the ranks as to what behavior is acceptable and which aren't? Extortion, bribes, directives without representation...
Wow, couldn't see that coming.
All occupiers are equal — but some occupiers are more equal than others. In wind-whipped Zuccotti Park, new divisions and hierarchies are threatening to upend Occupy Wall Street and its leaderless collective.
As the protest has grown, some of the occupiers have spontaneously taken charge on projects large and small. But many of the people in Zuccotti Park aren't taking direction well, leading to a tense Thursday of political disagreements, the occasional shouting match, and at least one fistfight.
Imposing structure and order seems to fly against everything the protests are about. The entitlement mentality is suddenly at odds with the concept of personal property - occupiers' possessions are being collected for "the greater good," and that isn't sitting well with those who are losing their property.
Another argument broke out next to the pile of appropriated belongings, growing taller by the minute. A man named Sage Roberts desperately rifled through the pile, looking for a sleeping bag. “They’ve taken my stuff,” he muttered. Lauren Digion, the sanitation group leader, broke in: “This isn’t your stuff. You got all this stuff from comfort [the working group]. It belongs to comfort.” [...]
As the communal sleeping bag argument between Lauren Digion and Sage Roberts threatened to get out of hand, a facilitator in a red hat walked by, brow furrowed. “Remember? You’re not allowed to do any more interviews,” he said to Digion. She nodded and went back to work. But when Roberts shouted, “Don’t tell me what to do!” Digion couldn't hold back.
“Someone has to be told what to do," she said. "Someone needs to give orders. There’s no sense of order in this fucking place.”
These kids are getting harsh lessons in the reality and necessity of government structure. Too bad they don't have the mental capacity to understand it.

Khan's Inspire Magazine: "Fact that Drone Missed Awlaki in May Proof God is on al Qaeda's Side" or Something
Apparently sometime between May 5th, when a missile from a Predator drone just missed killing Anwar al-Awlaki, and Sept. 30th when Awlaki and Samir Khan were killed by a drone missile, Allah withdrew his invisible force field from Awlaki.
So, what could Awlaki done that pissed Allah off over the summer? Yeah, I know you're going to want to jump to the conclusion that he was out picking up prostitutes again. But, come on, a brave mujahideen like Awalaki is allowed to get his whoremongering on.
No, we all know what really pisses Allah off: sodomy.

CIF Watch: On the explicit antisemitism of the Guardian’s Deborah Orr
A excellent read, a few quotes doesn't do it justice so be sure and read it all
Of course, that the Guardian published a report on the Gilad Shalit deal by a journalist as hostile to Israel as Deborah Orr is not surprising to anyone remotely familiar with the paper adeptly characterized by Robin Shepherd as the mainstream Anglo publication most hostile to Israel in the world.Those 1,000 "prisoners" were tried and convicted and some have Israeli blood on their hands. They weren't "kidnapped", they murdered innocent Israelis.
Nor is it surprising anymore when they publish essays or letters about Israel by commentators with a well-documented record of engaging in explicit antisemitism. While such contributors are often of the Islamist variety, recently they provided a forum to two of the most prolific modern (leftist) antisemites – Alison Weir and Gilad Atzmon.
However, as even the Guardian typically assures that such contributors maintain at least a thin “progressive” rhetorical veneer to furtively advance classic Judeophobic narratives, Orr’s latest piece stands out as a simply ugly, and thoroughly unrestrained, expression of animosity towards Jews[...]
Orr wrote:“It’s quite something, the prisoner swap between Hamas and the Israeli government that returns Gilad Shalit to his family, and more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners to theirs…[which is] an indication of how inured the world has become to the obscene idea that Israeli lives are more important than Palestinian lives.”
No matter what Israel does it is never enough. I'm glad Galid is alive (he is the first ever swap of coming back alive) and back home with his family but negotiating with terrorists is a no win situation.
Yousef al-Khattab Turns to the Dark Side
Wow it appears Joey has a new hobby, outing Jihobbyists.
Today's specimen is Abu Hadeed (shown here using his Youtube nickname). All jihobist like him try to strong arm you into accepting their rhetoric and most end up in jail where they believe they are the 'aseerun'. Anyway he is begging to make his point public so I will give him a platform. Interesting is the amount of times in his posts that he insults Khaleeji Arabs and uses terms like greasy & slimy. Seems to be a classic case of self hate,failure and blame it on the kuffar. You be the judge and don't forget to join his network,because indeed birds of a feather flock together.I knew Joey would see it our way.
Since Yousef had his falling out with the Jihad community they have turned their hatred against him as well. As they say politics make strange bedfellows.
In fact I'm of the opinion that even though I don't trust Yousef any further than I can throw him, his knowledge and expertise would be invaluable in the fight against terrorism and the spread of al-Qaeda propaganda.
We keep our focus tight here, for the most part we only direct our ire at known designated terrorist groups such as al-Qaeda and those who advocate for murder and terrorism against civilians. Civilians just like Joey.

Florida mom abandons family for some lovin at OWS protest
Why would she abandon her family? Besides snuggling up at night with a young waiter, she sees herself this way:
The unemployed Long Island native compared her decision to abandon her family to Americans serving in the armed forces.Comparing our soldiers serving to her stunt is disgusting. She's as bad as the Marine I wrote about yesterday. Self centered beotch/bastage. Maybe they can join up, they deserve each other.
“Military people leave their families all the time, so why should I feel bad?” a defiant Hessler said. “I’m fighting for a better world.”

New Footage of Captured Gaddafi'
According to a translation by Britain's Sky News, Gadhafi yelled at the revolutionaries. "What you are doing is not allowed in Islamic law," he reportedly said. "What you are doing is forbidden in Islam!"One of the images shows a gun pointed at his head which matches the bullet wound that appears in later images.
"Do you know right from wrong?" Gadhafi added on the video shortly before he appears to lose consciousness.
"Shut up, dog," one of the former rebels responded.
LOL!: I've Been Banned From Commenting At Mediaite
For those who care:
Yes - point out that Tommy Christopher is little more than an Obama Administration hack, and probably have a few leftie commenters complain that they're getting their backsides handed to them in debates in the threads, and that equals a banning from Mediaite. Apparently.
I've been pointing out the hypocrisy of the newly-minted warmonger left ecstatic that their Nobel Peace Prize-winning warmonger President has claimed at least partial credit for the mob-killing of Qaddaffi. No problem, but trying to get them to understand that cheering it on, considering their views from 2003-2008 is, well, hypocritical
It's not like I haven't been there a while making noise - reasonably respectful, articulate, sometimes irreverent noise (I was one of the five most "liked" members of the commenting community), so I wasn't spamming them or anything. Just lots of tenacious, hearty, sometimes heated debate.
Scroll through any number of threads over there and see if anything I was saying was really ban-worthy, or even close to some of the ignorant trash the liberals over there post regularly.
Oh well. Spread the word around the right-o-sphere if you so care! It's my understanding that this is a Dan Abrams venture (former MSNBC), which explains the site's rather unhidden right-bashing agenda and their apparent short leash for people who can show their post authors the gaping holes in their, um, 'coverage' of the media (which consists of approximately 90% Fox-bashing, 9% Limbaugh-quote-mining, and 1% other).
You're on your own, Pablo! Godspeed!
My work here is done. If they un-ban me, I'll let you know. OUT!
Communism's African-American Soviet Republic
Via American Thinker
Organized Communism has long targeted black Americans, an ongoing effort which has survived the fall of the USSR. Kudos to Peter Wilson, who here at American Thinker highlighted the manifesto of the Revolutionary Communist Party, who are in their glory with the occupation of Wall Street by their Marxist brethren and the usual assortment of easily manipulated liberal/progressive dupes -- the dependable, university-trained foot soldiers who fill the streets.Be sure and read it all
Readers of Wilson's post surely were shocked by what they read. Are there really people who believe these things? You bet there are. I deal with it constantly -- and it's nothing new at all.
Perhaps the most stunning element of the Revolutionary Communist Party's manifesto is the call for black Americans to unite into a separate, autonomous republic in the American South. Wilson cited the Revolutionary Communist Party's constitution, which called upon African-Americans to forge an autonomous region comprising "the southern part of the former imperialist United States of America." That decision would be made by a special vote in which only African-Americans would be eligible to participate.
Insane? Yes. The concept is fortunately insane to African-Americans as well as all Americans. But I'm here to tell you it isn't anything new.[ More..]

#OccupyWallStreet (Hella Occupy Oakland): ABC's Reporters Life Allegedly Threatened: "We Shoot White Bitches Like You Around Here"..
Via Big Journalism:
Early yesterday morning, we received a tip from a reader in the San Francisco East Bay area who informed us that a local reporter’s life had been threatened by an activist at the Occupy Oakland demonstration.How can the MSM admit this? Obi One and the Dems support these occupiers. Can't have bad press for "The One" now can we?
Our source, who is fearful of reprisal and has requested anonymity, says that KGO-TV’s Amy Hollyfield was accosted by a man who threatened her and used a racial slur: “We shoot white bitches like you around here.”
According to our source, the Oakland Police Department was apparently called to the scene. Inquiries to the police, and to Hollyfield, which began at roughly 8 a.m. Pacific time yesterday, are still unanswered today.
Other local morning news reports from three of the major Bay Area stations suggested that the Occupy Oakland tent city had descended into rat-infested squalor with complaints of vandalism, public urination, sexual harassment, and sex in public[...]
Yet even as these local stations reported how Occupy Oakland has collapsed into chaos, they failed to report that police were allegedly called to protect a reporter whose life was threatened in a racist and misogynistic way.[More..]

Two More Charged in Jihad Jane Case
Indictment Against Jawa Report Hater Unsealed
It's about freakin' time. This is a followup to a couple of earlier posts on Colleen "Jihad Jane" LaRose's accomplices. Both had been indicted, but Mohammad Khalid was a minor until recently and his indictment was under seal. The charges against Damache in this indictment supersede an earlier indictment against him.
I'll update it later with some more info and links to earlier posts for background info. But let's also not forget that Mohammad "Hassan" Khalid was online chat buddies with Emerson Begolly, both of whom called me a "fag" and talked about my mom in evidence presented in Begolly's indictment. He also admitted to Begolly that he had fantisized about a Columbine style attack against the children of government workers at his high school (lots of background info at that link).
Here's the FBI press release from Philedelphia:
Two Indicted for Conspiracy to Provide Material Support to Terrorists
Ali Charaf Damache, an Algerian man who resided in Ireland, and Mohammad Hassan Khalid, a Pakistani citizen and U.S. lawful permanent resident who resided in Maryland, have been charged with conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists in a superseding indictment returned today in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania.
The charges were announced by Lisa Monaco, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; Zane David Memeger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania; and Mark Giuliano, Executive Assistant Director of the FBI’s National Security Branch.
Damache, aka “Theblackflag,” 46, is charged in the superseding indictment with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists and one count of attempted identity theft to facilitate an act of international terrorism. Damache was arrested by authorities in Ireland in March 2010 where he is currently being held on unrelated charges. The United States intends to seek his extradition from Ireland to stand trial in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. If convicted of the charges against him in the superseding indictment, Damache faces a potential sentence of 45 years in prison.
Khalid, aka “Abdul Ba’aree ‘Abd Al-Rahman Al-Hassan Al-Afghani Al-Junoobi W’at-Emiratee,” 18, is charged in the superseding indictment with one count of conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists. Khalid was arrested in Ellicot City, Md., on July 6, 2011, and is currently in custody in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. If convicted of the charge against him in the superseding indictment, Khalid faces a potential sentence of 15 years in prison.
“Today’s indictment, which alleges a terrorist conspiracy involving individuals around the globe who connected via the Internet—including a teenager and two women living in America—underscores the evolving nature of violent extremism.” said Assistant Attorney General Monaco. “I thank the many agents, analysts, and prosecutors who helped bring about this case.”
“Protecting the citizens of the United States from acts of terrorism is one of the highest priorities of the Department of Justice,” said U.S. Attorney Memeger. “This case demonstrates that we must remain vigilant within our communities to make sure that we bring to justice those terrorists, of any age or background, who seek to do great harm to our citizens.”
“This investigation highlights the diverse threat environment we face today,” said FBI Executive Assistant Director Giuliano. “As revealed in this case, individuals used the Internet to further their radicalization and contribute to the radicalization of others. The FBI is committed to disrupting individual and group plots and doing so in close coordination with our law enforcement, intelligence and private sector partners.”
The indictment alleges that, from about 2008 through July 2011, Damache and Khalid conspired with Colleen R. LaRose, Jamie Paulin Ramirez, and others to provide material support and resources, including logistical support, recruitment services, financial support, identification documents and personnel, to a conspiracy to kill overseas. LaRose, aka “Fatima LaRose,” aka “Jihad Jane,” pleaded guilty in February 2011 in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists, conspiracy to kill in a foreign country, false statements, and attempted identity theft. Ramirez pleaded guilty in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania in March 2011 to conspiracy to provide material support to terrorists.
According to the indictment, Damache, Khalid and others devised and coordinated a violent jihad organization consisting of men and women from Europe and the United States divided into a planning team, a research team, an action team, a recruitment team and a finance team; some of whom would travel to South Asia for explosives training and return to Europe to wage violent jihad.
The indictment alleges that Damache, Khalid, LaRose, and others recruited men online to wage violent jihad in South Asia and Europe. In addition, Damache, Khalid, LaRose, and others allegedly recruited women who had passports and the ability to travel to and around Europe in support of violent jihad. The indictment further alleges that LaRose, Paulin-Ramirez, and others traveled to and around Europe to participate in and support violent jihad; and that Khalid and LaRose and others solicited funds online for terrorists.
For example, the indictment alleges that in July 2009, Damache sent an electronic communication using the username “Theblackflag” to Khalid, asking Khalid to recruit online “some brothers that can travel freely . . . with eu passports . . . .[A]nd I need some sisters too.” Damache also allegedly advised Khalid that “sister fatima will be charge of other sister care . . . . [W]e have already organized every thing for her. . . .” The indictment further alleges that Paulin-Ramirez married Damache on the day she arrived with her minor child in Europe to live and train with jihadists, even though she had never met Damache in person, and that, while living together in Europe, the couple began training Ramirez’s minor child in the ways of violent jihad.
Among other things, the indictment further alleges that, in July 2009, Khalid posted or caused to be posted an online solicitation for funds to support terrorism on behalf of LaRose and later sent electronic communications to multiple online forums requesting the deletion of all posts by LaRose after she was questioned by the FBI. In August 2009, Khalid allegedly sent a questionnaire to LaRose in which he asked another potential female recruit about her beliefs and intentions with regard to violent jihad. In addition, Khalid allegedly received from LaRose and concealed the location of a U.S. passport that she had stolen from another individual. This case was investigated by the FBI’s Joint Terrorism Task Force in Philadelphia, and the FBI Field Divisions in New York, Denver, Washington, D.C., and Baltimore. Authorities in Ireland also provided assistance in this matter.
The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Arbittier Williams, in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, and Matthew F. Blue, Trial Attorney from the Counterterrorism Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division. The Office of International Affairs in the Justice Department’s Criminal Division also provided assistance.
The charges contained in an indictment are mere allegations and defendants are presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
Domestic Terror Trial for Blogger Starts Next Week
Here's a Boston Herald article on the upcoming trial of the Boston blogger Tarek Mehanna. Like most articles on Mehenna it notes that he the prosecution found a vast library of jihadi materials on his computer.
And, like most articles, it completely misses the point: Mehenna is not on trial for owning jihad material, he is on trial for providing material aid to al Qaeda.
The particular material support Tarek Mehenna provided was translating Arabic jihadi materials into English at al Qaeda's request. He also conspired with another man to join al Qaeda in Yemen and the pair were in the initial planning stages of a domestic terror attack.
The FBI had Mehenna under surveillance and would probably have let the plot develop further had one of Mehenna's co-conspirators not fled the country. Mehenna himself was arrested as he was leaving the country.
So, please spare us the "violation the First Amendment" argument. Mehenna's library will be used as an indication of where his sympathies were and his state of mind, not as evidence of his primary crime.
His Iskandri blog is still online. Go read it and tell me if you think this is just "some poor innocent victim of Islamophobia", as some activists are claiming. And remember when you read it that this is what he's saying in public. His online work for al Qaeda was done much more under the radar.

Momar Gadhafi Killed [Videos of Gaddafi's Body Added]
Libyan strongman Muammar Qaddafi is dead, according to a spokesman for the Transitional National Council.[Update - mp] Here's the alleged death photo.
Qaddafi died of wounds suffered during his capture near his hometown of Sirte on Thursday, Reuters and Sky News reported. U.S. officials say they are working to confirm the TNC's claim.
"Qaddafi is dead. He is absolutely dead ... he was shot in both legs and in the head. The body will be arriving in Misrata soon," media spokesman Abdullah Berrassali told Sky News.
The Transitional National Council's UK spokesman, Mahmoud Nacua, warned that there was "not enough information" to confirm Qaddafi's capture, and a former TNC spokesman in Britain, Guma al Gamati told Sky News that "this is not confirmed."
Sirte, Qaddafi's hometown and the last bastion of his supporters, was the last holdout against TNC forces. The town's capture, which both military officials and new regime political sources said was expected later Thursday, would pave the way for the TNC to officially take control of Libya and move its headquarters away from its Benghazi stronghold in the east to the capital, Tripoli.
Still awaiting confirmation.
Update: Reports are that he was killed in the ambulance after surrendering or being captured. He was in uniform. War crime? Or did he try to resist or escape in the ambulance?
Nahhh.... not Obi-One's boys... they wouldn't murder captured soldiers. Surely the Muj wouldn't do that. Maybe Saddam was just lucky the Americans captured him because, you know, the Americans make sure you get a fair trial. The Muj? Not so much.
Update II: Several videos showing anti-Ghaddafi forces celebrating with the body are below the fold. The last one is raw footage. Hat Tip: Octavia.

Brave Al Shabaab Mujahideen Like To Kidnap Disabled Elderly Kaffir Women & Watch Them Die
A Frenchwoman was kidnapped in Kenya three weeks ago and al-Shabaab mujahideen took her to their al-Qaeda stronghold in Somalia.
The brave mujahideen left behind her wheelchair and medicine. Apparently, they dragged her because..well...she couldn't walk!
France stated they sent her meds to Al Shabaab but that was a waste of time, it is kaffir stuff. Al Qaeda doesn't care about kaffir medicines only kaffir money.
Brave bastar*ds, aint they?
The French authorities said they heard Marie Dedieu, 66, had died via intelligence officers dispatched by Paris to the region to seek her release. However, they said they had no information as to when she died or in what circumstances.RIP Marie Dedieu, may those who did this be sploded into thousands of pieces..
"Mrs Dedieu's state of health, uncertainty over the conditions of her detention and the fact that the kidnappers probably refused to give her the medication that we sent her lead us to believe that this tragic outcome is unfortunately the most likely," the foreign ministry statement said.
Dedieu used a wheelchair, had undergone two years of cancer treatment and also had heart problems for which she needed four-hourly medication. Her immune system was described by those who knew here as "very weak".
"It's a barbaric, violent act of utter brutality," foreign minister Alain Juppè said.
Terrorist's Family Demands Apology from US
The takeaway: riding in a car with a terrorist is never a good idea, especially if your last name is Awlaki:
The family of radical Islamic cleric Anwar al-Awlaki has issued a statement condemning the killing of Awlaki and of Awlaki's teen son, and accusing the U.S. of lying about the younger Awlaki's age in order to "clear itself from the killing of the innocents."
Anwar al-Awlaki, an al Qaeda leader linked to multiple terror attacks in the U.S. and Britain, was killed along with al Qaeda propagandist Samir Khan in a Sept. 30 CIA drone strike in Yemen. Abdulrahman al-Awlaki died in a separate U.S. drone strike on Oct. 14 along with six others, including Ibrahim al-Bana, an Egyptian whom U.S. officials identified as an operational al Qaeda leader. Anwar al-Awlaki, his son and Samir Khan were all U.S. citizens.

Muslim Yelling "You're All Going to Die, Allahu Akbar" on Airplane Not as Funny as Once Thought
I'm not going for the "dry run" hypothesis that so many jump to in cases like this. What one needs to consider is that crazy is not culturally determined. Which means there are a lot of Muslims who, like every other group, are crazy.
But what Muslims should understand is that the rest of us are neither bigoted nor crazy ourselves for fearing a guy yelling Allahu Akbar on a plane more than a crazy guy yelling Jesus saves on that same plane:
“You’re all going to die,” a man dressed in black screamed at passengers Tuesday afternoon. “You’re all going to hell. Allahu Akbar,” translated as God is great in Arabic.Thanks to Galen.

Occupy Blames Da Jooos
And Iran's state media outlets, always ready to pile on when there is Jew hatred going on does just that.
TEHRAN (FNA)- Occupy Wall Street protesters condemned the Zionist lobbies and communities living in the US as well as the Zionist regime of Israel for the economic inequality and crisis in the United States, saying that their country is falling apart for the sake of Israel.
Despite tight censorship by the western media, intense anti-Israel and anti-Zionist tendencies are reported from Occupy Wall Street protest demonstrations against the US administration's cruel economic, financial and political policies and practice.
Among the signs that could be seen in the protest were, "Gaza supports the occupation of Wall Street", "Hitler's Bankers" and a sign urging people to Google the following: Wall St. Jews, Jewish billionaires, Jews & Federal Reserve Bank.
In addition, anti-Israel signs were raised against "Israel's occupation of Gaza".
Another protestor said that "a small ethnic group constitutes almost all of the hedge fund managers and bankers on Wall Street. They are all Jewish. There is a conspiracy in this country where Jews control the media, finances. They have pooled their money together in order to take control of America."

5 Foreign Nationals Arrested In Texas Courthouse Break in
The FBI and local police say they are trying to figure out why five French-Moroccan nationals tried to break into a Texas courthouse in the middle of the night.The men apparently stated they were just trying to get a tour of the city. Breaking into the courthouse to do that? Sure.
At least five foreign nationals are in custody after the attempted break-in at the Bexar County Courthouse in San Antonio, which triggered a bomb scare and FBI terror investigation, a source close to the case tells FoxNews.com[...]
The pair, along with another man, who was outside in an RV, are being questioned by the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.
Documents found inside the van showed the men seemed to have traveled extensively to high-level security facilities around the country, investigators said.[More]
Also, FOX in San Antonio has this:
SWAT Team members and the S.A.P.D. Bomb Squad also searched the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center downtown but also did not find anything suspicious. A conference on national security issues is taking place at the convention center and authorities wanted to ensure it was not targetedExpect updates.
Brothers Beat Child Molester; Now Facing More Prison Time Than Molester
Two Northern California brothers who allegedly beat a child molester after they learned of his attack on an 8-year-old girl may get more time in prison than the molester, The Mercury News reported.
Miguel Cerda, described as a father figure to the girl, and brother Erik Cerda turned down two plea deals that would have brought them one to four years in state prison. Instead, they now face seven years to life in prison if convicted at trial.
These guys wouldn't get a day in prison if I were on the jury. Vigilante justice is never an acceptable substitute, but there is something seriously wrong with a legal system that would sentence these two to more time than a child molester.

Jihad U Graduates Two Fresh Terrorists
ast week, underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab pleaded guilty for trying to murder 289 innocent civilians on Christmas Day 2009: he claimed he is guilty under U.S. law, but innocent under Islamic law. Earlier this month, North Carolina resident and al-Qaeda English-language propagandist Samir Khan met his end in a drone strike targeting al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) leader Anwar al-Awlaki, former imam at the Dar al-Hijrah terrorist factory in Falls Church, Virginia.Read the rest.
Both Abdulmutallab and Khan had connections to Awlaki, but they also had one additional tie: they were both former members of the extremist AlMaghrib Institute. (I first wrote about AlMaghrib’s extremist teaching back in February 2007.) With Khan’s death and Abdulmutallab’s guilty plea, the pair join a long line of terrorist operatives who have graduated from “Jihad U.”

Palestinian envoy, Linda Sobeh Ali, booted from Canada
She got caught trying to spread anti-Semitic propaganda. Claimed she never watched it. Not. I believe it's from either the Palestinian Authorities TV channel or Hamas TV. No way will you find anything on either channel that isn't anti-Semitic.
The diplomatic cold shoulder was sparked when Ms. Sobeh Ali took to Twitter this month to circulate a link to a video posted on YouTube, telling her followers on the social-media message system to "check this video out."Good on Canada
The video shows a Palestinian girl, in tears and shouting with passion, reciting a poem in Arabic, "I am Palestinian." The English subtitles on the video include a passage where millions are called "to a war that raze the injustice and oppression and destroy the Jews."
When Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird learned of it about two weeks ago, he instructed his deputy minister, Morris Rosenberg, to call Ms. Sobeh Ali in to complain, and the Canadian representative in the West Bank, Chris Greenshields, to protest to the Palestinian Authority.
"Canada expects the Palestinian Authority to appropriately deal with this serious transgression," Mr. Baird's spokesman, Chris Day, said in an e-mail. "We have taken the decision to limit communication with this official until a replacement is selected."...
BTW, her twitter and Facebook page is no more..

Google's YouTube Supports Al Qaeda Terrorist Propaganda
New message from al-Qaeda's Abu Yahya Al-Libi
On October 17, 2011, the Al-Qaeda media company Al-Sahab posted a 28-minute video message by Abu Yahya Al-Libi, titled "Algeria and the Battle of Patience." In the message, Al-Libi speaks about France's continued efforts to maintain its grip on Algeria, from its colonization of the country to date.Naturally it is already on YouTube, home of terrorist propaganda.

Leftists love to get arrested at protests. It must make them feel like adults and compensates for their otherwise very childish behavior.
But new video released exclusively by EAGtv shows the protestors pre-arrange who is to be arrested. That’s right – the arrests are as scripted as a professional wrestling match, at least on the occupiers’ end.
What I find really disturbing about the video above is not so much a bunch of crazy loons getting arrested, but that the police who are also public sector employees appear to be co-operating. Arresting the arrestables not for breaking any laws or failing to follow orders for public safety but because its in the script.
In this case abusing their oath in order to give the protesters the money shot.
Analysis: Schalit on Egypt TV: exploitative, abusive, cruel
Unbelievable, oh wait...
Israeli officials described Gilad Schalit's first interview after his release as "exploitative." They could have added amateurish, propagandistic, opportunistic and downright cruel.Is it any wonder he appears stressed? A masked Hamas terrorist was standing behind him and was also filming the interview. Hell, maybe for all he knew, he may have thought this was another Hamas propaganda video:
Tuesday's travesty - carried live on state-run TV - was conducted by Shahira Amin, a leading Egyptian journalist who in February quit the channel for its skewed coverage of the popular protests that unseated president Hosni Mubarak. That Amin now appears to be doing Cairo's bidding bodes ill for hopes the "new Egypt" would usher in the first free media environment in the post-colonial Arab world.
The notion that Schalit agreed to give Nile TV an interview of his own free will beggars belief. Forcing him to do so immediately after his release from Gaza - before seeing medical staff, much less an Israeli representative or his family - is in itself an apparent breach of journalistic ethics.
That issue aside, more than a few of Amin's questions ran the gamut from fatuous to sadistic.
Hamas militants were in the area as the interview was being set up. One of them stood behind Schalit's chair, wearing a black face mask, a green headband of the Qassam brigades — Hamas' military wing — and filming with a video camera in his hand[...]
An ashen-faced Schalit answered a range of questions on his captivity and what he thought of the 1,027 Palestinian prisoners released for his freedom.
He was then handed over to Israeli officials and only then given a medical examination, where doctors determined he showed signs of malnutrition and lack of exposure to sunlight.

Galid's father had this to say about Galid's physical condition. No suprise here:
2 hours 51 min ago - GazaYes, execute those prisoners Hamas wanted and more. Pack a bunch of bacon in their mouths and send them on their way.
Noam Shalit, Gilad's father, tells reporters that his son "feels well" but that he "suffers some injuries as a result of inadequate treatment". He has some shrapnel wounds and suffers some maladies due to his lack of exposure from the sun.
"He could not communicate with others, especially in his own language," he added.
The White House spokesman as well as other countries are hailing this swap as a step to meaningful peace talks. Step? What fecking step? Murderers were released for a Israeli POW who was denied visits by the Red Cross. He had no proper nutrition or medical treatment Plus, he can't even speak in his spoken tongue!
Peace talks my arse. Until the Islamists love life more that they love death terrorism will continue. Their only mission in life is to kill Jews, period!

An article published on a Fatah-affiliated website, by journalist Sami Foda, stated: "[Gilad Shalit is] a young man who spent his time in bars and brothels, playing games and pampering himself. He enjoyed the pleasures of a land not his own. He went around robbing, stealing, torching, raping, trampling, and desecrating the soil of this land that is not his own. He viciously strove to shed the blood of the martyrs, killed innocent people, shelled the homes of innocent people with tanks, destroying them without shame, mercy, or pangs of conscience, a stupid murderer who did not mind killing our elderly, our men, our youth, and our women, and even our poor children, [so] pure and innocent.
"This soldier was a waif born in a shelter as a result of the deterioration and disintegration of Israeli society. A Zionist soldier, he became seeped with Zionism to the bone... [He is] a gullible [boy], the genetic grandson of the Zionist leaders by virtue of his affiliation with, and loyalty to, his Nazi leaders. This monster joined the army of Zionist gangs, to carry on the legacy of his fathers, the apes and pigs of the Haganah, Irgun, Stern, and Palmach organizations, in order to carry out the orders of his fascist masters. That was the Zionist soldier Gilad Shalit, 19 years-old when he was captured by the Palestinian resistance.[More..]

America Staging Giant Can Of Whupass on Pakistani Border
US forces are massing on the Pakistan border in eastern Afghanistan amid reports of an imminent drone missile offensive against fighters from the feared Haqqani Network, a Taliban faction which operates from safe havens in Pakistan's North Waziristan Agency, Pakistan Army sources have confirmed.Repel any incursion? Good luck with that.
The scale of the American build-up, including helicopter gunships, heavy artillery and hundreds of American and Afghan troops, caused panic in north Waziristan where tribal militias who feared they could be targeted gathered in the capital Miranshah to coordinate their response.
Local officials in the Federally-Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) warned that Pakistan's armed forces would repel any incursion across the border by American forces, but military sources in Islamabad and Afghan officials suggested the build-up was part of a coordinated operation.

Death of Gaddafi's youngest son confirmed
I know the world has moved on...but a TV channel loyal to Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi has confirmed something rumored up until now.
Damascus-based Al Rai television said that Khamis Gaddafi was killed during fighting in Tarhouna, 80 kilometres south of the capital Tripoli, on August 29.
The channel said that his cousin Mohamed Abdullah al-Senousi, the son of Gaddafi's intelligence chief, was killed in the same battle.
This is the first confirmation of the death of Khamis Gaddafi, coming after several such reports emerged from fighters and the country's ruling National Transitional Council.
Khamis, 28, was the commander of a brigade in the pro-Gaddafi forces, which was said to have been in charge of suppressing protests when they began in early February in the eastern city of Benghazi.

SAIH annual campaign has created reactions. This year's campaign focuses on the students' role as critics and democracy builders. Students throughout the world experience to be censored, monitored, persecuted and imprisoned for their social commitment. The campaign is fronted by a poster put up on all Norwegian university and college towns. The poster shows the dictators Adolf Hitler, Muammar al-Gadafi, Robert Mugabe, Kim Jong-il, Joseph Stalin - and the Ayatollah Khomeini who flee from the protesting students. This poster made the Iranian embassy to react.
- Unfortunately, the poster contains a picture of our great late leader Imam Khomeini, next dictators like Hitler. You have offended the feelings of a great nation, says the email that SAIH has received from the press chief of the Iranian Embassy in Oslo, Mohammad Javad Hosseini. - The Embassy of The Islamic Republic of Iran strongly protests against this action and wants your organization to remove this picture as soon as possible; it is further stated in the email from the embassy.
You can purchase the poster HERE.

Al Qaeda media chief killed in air strike (In Yemen...not Gadahan)
Bonus/Bumped: Awlaki's Son Killed
Everyone chill it wasn't Adam...
Three separate US airstrikes have killed several suspected Al Qaeda militants in southern Yemen, including the media chief of the jihadist group's regional affiliate in the country.Team America!
The Yemeni defence ministry confirmed the deaths but insisted the strikes - in a militant stronghold east of the city of Aden - were carried out by its own forces.
"Three strikes, apparently American, which were launched against positions held by Al Qaeda militants in Azzan, one of the group's bastions, killed seven of them, including the Egyptian, [Al Qaeda media chief] Ibrahim al-Banna," a local official said.
One of the strikes hit a mosque near the apparent primary target of the strike, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity.
A number of suspected militants were also wounded and were taken to a local hospital which is under the control of the militants.
The Yemeni defence ministry confirmed al-Banna was among seven suspected Al Qaeda militants killed, adding that he was wanted "internationally" for "planning attacks both inside and outside Yemen."
Al-Banna was "in charge of the media arm of Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula" and was one of the group's "most dangerous operatives," the ministry added.
Also among the dead was a son of the American-born Al Qaeda cleric Anwar Al-Awlaqi, who was himself killed in a US missile strike last month.
"Abderrahman Anwar al-Awlaqi was killed in the raid," a tribal source told AFP.
Yemen routinely denies that the US carries out offensive operations on its territory, insisting that it plays a purely logistic and intelligence role in support of Yemen's own counter-terror operations.
Update by Jane: The seven AQAP killed in Azzam, Shabwa included Egyptian Ibrahim al Banna who was among 28 arrested in Hadramout in 2008. The group was put on trial in 2010 for forming an armed gang; seven of the 28 were tried in absentia and its unclear whether al Banna still was in custody or not. An article written at the time of the trial ties him to Iraqi al Qaeda and Zarchawi.
A June drone strike in the same area killed Abu al Harithy Jr. of the 19 member Zarchawi cell that admitted fighting in Iraq and was tried in 2006; the Yemeni court accepted their defense argument that jihad is a duty in occupied Muslim lands.
UPDATE by Rusty: Bwahahahahahaaa!!!! Life's a bitch when you're an Awlaki.
Also, how could we kill Gadahn? He's already dead.

The legal observer in this video has been identified as Ari Douglas, and while the extent of his injuries remains unclear, some doubt has been cast on earlier reports that he was seriously injured. A photographer for the Daily News who witnessed the confrontation, Joe Marino, says "the bike definitely hit him" but the officer didn't run him over. "I saw him sticking his legs under the bike to make it appear he was run over," Marino claims.

Saudi Ambassador Plot Khinspiracy Thread
Issue 1! Something is rotten in Denmark.
I mean 100k to kill the ambassador? Not even the Hut would do it that cheap.
Earlier, while watching McLaughlin Group, I had the thought yeah, probably this is a case of spy vs. spy. Both sets looking at this dude and wondering what the hell the other side is doing with this guy....
The 100k was meant to fail. I dunno maybe they were cultivating a splodey dope for when the Mexicans stole the money, you owe us now strap this on.
Hey its possible, I used to bullseye womprats in Beggars Canyon way back in the day. And they don't average much over two meters. And also it was better than any of the ideas that Elanor Clift had.
Issue 2! When do we start the bombing runs?
Who's Up for Yet Another War?
Ah, remember the good old days when Obama was the darling of Moveon.org for his antiwar rhetoric? That was, what, less than three years ago?
US President Barack Obama said Friday he is sending 100 combat troops to central Africa to help and advise forces battling Ugandan Lord’s Resistance Army rebels accused of rape, murder and kidnappingI'll second AllahP's sentiment about the Lord's Resistance Army.
The fact is these guys are only "Christian" in the sense that one or two have read a couple of passages from the Old Testament and they're "not Muslim". Which is a rare thing these days for international terror group.
They're a cult with an Army.
And for those of you who have let arcane theological constructs trump reason and commonplace linguistic usage: the Lord's Resistance Army is what a real "cult" actually looks like.
The real question here is not if they are the bad guys, because clearly they are, but why is this our problem? At least in Libya we had a regime which was directly responsible for acts of terror against the US and its citizens.
Post Script: on further reflection I wonder if this isn't part of a quid pro quo deal with Uganda over Somalia? The bulk of AU troops fighting al Shabaab are from Uganda and in this instance are fighting a proxy war on behalf of the US. So, could it be that some kind of deal has been reached where their continued presence in Somalia was contingent on US support for support against the LRA?
The US does have an interest in fighting Shabaab in which case supporting Uganda against LRA might be necessary.

Subject: Join the #occupy event near you
Join an occupation solidarity event near you on Saturday and take part in a movement that's changing the nation.
Join an Event!
Dear MoveOn member,
Have you heard the incredible news?
Thanks to the unflinching commitment of the Occupy Wall Street protesters, and support from hundreds of thousands of people across the country, they won their fight this morning to continue the occupation of Zuccotti Park.1
Mayor Mike Bloomberg had threatened to evict the protesters on behalf of Brookfield Properties, the real estate conglomerate that owns Zuccotti Park. But in the face of massive public opposition, at the last minute, they backed down.
But New York isn't the only place protesters are under threat of eviction and intimidation. Protesters in Boston, Denver, Seattle, San Francisco, and other cities have been arrested and harassed.2
This morning, we saw what happens when hundreds of thousands of us mobilize. So now, Occupy Wall Street is calling for a global day of action tomorrow against Wall Street greed, with events in more than 950 cities and 82 countries.3 This is the time to join an occupation solidarity action in your area to defend this peaceful protest movement and help it take root across the country.
Can you join an occupation solidarity action this Saturday?
Yes (click here to find the action nearest you)
No, but keep me updated
After the news hit that the Occupy Wall Street protesters would be effectively evicted from Zuccotti Park, the call went out across the country.
300,000 MoveOn members signed an emergency petition to Mayor Bloomberg in less than 24 hours, which was delivered to the park and City Hall last night. Tens of thousands of people in New York and across the country put in calls to the city, demanding that the protesters be allowed to stay.
And at 6 this morning, thousands of MoveOn members, union workers, community organizers, and other brave New Yorkers swelled the ranks of the protesters, standing with them shoulder-to-shoulder against their impending eviction.
Most incredible were the 99% protesters themselves. They stood their ground, in the best traditions of nonviolent resistance. And in an amazing show of organization and action, they undertook a full-scale cleaning of the park, taking away the false pretext of a "cleaning operation" under which Brookfield and the city were threatening to evict them.
Want to be part of the Occupy story in your area by joining the solidarity action near you this Saturday?
Yes (click here to find the action nearest you).
No, but keep me updated
Occupy Wall Street has shown us what's possible when a small and dedicated group of people standing up against the corporate takeover of our democracy are supported by a wider progressive community.
Whether you want to help form the core of committed protesters in your area or be part of the progressive community that stands with them, tomorrow is the time to join in solidarity with Occupy Wall Street:
Thanks for all you do.

Three Convicted of Terrorism Related Crimes in N.C.
On Thursday afternoon, after nearly 10 hours of deliberations, a federal jury convicted Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, 23, Ziyad Yaghi, 22, and Hysen Sherifi, 26, of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists.Because you know there's no reason to think that Muslims from North Carolina would ever have anything to do with Jihadism, I mean besides that whole deal with Samir Khan joining AQAP.
The case highlighted the government’s use of FBI informants to build a slew of terror cases across the country since the Sept. 11 attacks, and raised questions about the influence of an older, outspoken man in a rural community over three young men seeking direction in their lives.
"I feel sorry for these kids," said Jihad Shawwa, an active leader among Raleigh-area Muslims for the past two decades.That's right pinning Jihad on Muslims is like totally unfair or so says...
Khalillah Sabra, North Carolina Director of Civil Rights for the Muslim American Society, is concerned that Daniel Patrick Boyd had been able to be so influential to the young Muslims accused in the case.Yeah just young adventurous boys who conspired to "murder, kidnap, maim and injure persons", two weapons charges and conspiring to kill a federal officer or employee.
"I feel they let a parasite into the community, and as a result these boys are going to spend a significant amount of their life in prison," Sabra said Thursday. "If the community had done its homework, this might not have happened. He was a grown man and these were young, adventurous boys that really had no idea what they were getting into."
Boys will be boys you know.

two U.S. law enforcement sources told NBC News that Arbabsiar, in recorded conversations with an undercover drug informant, said in coded language that the same individuals who were orchestrating the bombing plot against the ambassador were involved in drug dealing. He told the informant that his Iranian handlers could arrange to provide Los Zetas, a Mexican drug cartel, with “multi-ton” shipments of opium, the sources said.Thanks to See-Dub, who apparently is still alive somewhere.

Fact that one Muslim admits Sharia states are intolerant is seen as sign of hope and change. Too stupid to really even comment on.

This is the first time that a NATIONAL level Emergency Alert test will be conducted. TV and radio will broadcast a test warning message for two to three minutes.
NOAA weather alert radios will not broadcast the alert. NOAA is designed for weather alerts and not national emergency messages. Web based Social Media will not be used in this initial test for Emergency Alert System notification by FEMA and the FCC, but one should expect there to be activity discussing the test on those platforms.
FEMA and the FCC are coordinating this test with broadcasters throughout the United States. The following information was taken from the FEMA website and should answer common questions concerning this test. For more information, there is an additional reference link on the FCC website -

No Homegrown Radicals Alert: 3 Convicted in Virginia of Plot to Attack Quantico Marine Corps Base
The three convicted today are in addition to three others involved in the plot to attack the Marine Corps base at Quantico, VA who already pleaded guilty. Given the target, I say we should have let them attack. That would be a few less traitors to worry about, and free target practice for the Marines.
A federal jury convicted three North Carolina men Thursday in a trial that focused on a plot to carry out terrorist attacks on the U.S. Marine Corps base at Quantico, Va., and foreign targets.The worst part?
The jury in the month-long trial delivered its verdict against Mohammad Omar Aly Hassan, Ziyad Yaghi and Hysen Sherifi after deliberating since Wednesday. Yaghi and Sherifi were convicted on all counts. Hassan was found not guilty of conspiracy to carry out attacks overseas but convicted of providing material support to terrorists.
The 2009 arrests of the men provoked anger and fear among some Raleigh-area Muslims, who worried their community was subject to aggressive scrutiny by federal law enforcement. Some members of a Raleigh mosque regularly made the five-hour round trip to New Bern to offer moral support to the three defendants on trial.As always, forward this to Democratic members of the House Homeland Security Committee who deny that Islamist radicalization is happening on American soil.

Europe's Revolving Terror Door: GIMF Leader Released from Prison Two Weeks Ago Back Recruiting Terrorists
I'm not going to pick on Germany for the short sentence served by former Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF) leader Mohammad "Abu Usama al-Gharib" Mahmoud. The problem of short sentences for serious offenses is found in nearly every European country. Mahmoud was only sentenced to four years for recruiting terrorists and for threatening acts of terrorism.
And now that he's out he's back at his mosque in Austria where some in the community see him as a "victim" of the global (Jooooish, I'm sure) conspiracy against Muslims. And better yet, he's back online recruiting radicals and telling them that jail is actually not that bad a place:
Newspaper Die Presse reports today (Thurs) that the Austrian, whose family have roots in Egypt, appealed to listeners to do everything "that the flag of Islam is raised at the White House and the Vatican." The daily also reports that he claimed "prison is not as hard as it sounds." According to the Kurier newspaper, Mohammed M. told people gathering at the mosque to listen to his speeches that "you’ve got everything you need in jail: a warm bed, a pillow. (...) You can even buy cake – what more do you want?"The one way to insure they don't leave prison as mujahideen is to just shoot them. Unrealistic, I know. But I can dream, can't I?
Die Presse reveals he said prison was a good place to recruit radicals. "They get there as drug dealers and robbers to be mujahedin when being released," he is quoted as saying in one of his most recent lectures which were also spread on the internet. Mohammed M. – who glorifies dying as a martyr – reportedly also appealed on fellow Muslims to arm themselves before showing a folding knife he always carries.
The one piece of good news here is that apparently the Austrian authorities are considering charging Mohammad Mahmoud with some kind of "hate speech" charge. So, what, he'll get like six months this time?
And as a reminder who Mohammad Mahmoud was buddies with online, I offer you this oldie but goodie.....
Given the fate of Samir "Inshallahshaheed" Khan, I'm thinking that letting Mahmoud make hijrah to Yemen isn't such a bad idea.

State Department Fails at Refuting Online Jihadism
Like a young Luke Skywalker attempting to raise an x-wing fighter from the swamps of Degobah, the US State Department tries and fails to win the battle of hearts and minds online. And why is that? It's all about the porn and prostitutes!
Fewer than 10 diplomats make up the State Department’s digital-outreach team, which is charged with countering al Qaeda’s recruitment efforts via social networks, blog posts and Internet videos, according to current and former officials.No need to declassify bin Laden's porn stash, Vinnie has reproduced the collection down to the sticky pages of "Modern Goat Photography".
The “eight or nine” team members hang out online with angry young Muslims to steer them away from terrorist radicalization, a senior State Department official said on background....
No U.S. agency made any effort to publicize the U.S.-born al-Awlaki’s two citations for soliciting prostitutes when he lived in San Diego, said J. Michael Waller, professor of public diplomacy and political warfare at the Institute for World Politics in Washington.
“What about [Osama] bin Laden’s porn?” he said, referring to the stash of pornography reportedly recovered by U.S. forces from the slain al Qaeda leader’s compound. “There’s no legitimate reason for that stuff to be classified. Get it out there.

Virginia Man Accused of Acting as Unregistered Agent of Syrian Government and Spying on Syrian Protestors in America
WASHINGTON – Mohamad Anas Haitham Soueid, 47, a resident of Leesburg, Va., has been charged for his alleged role in a conspiracy to collect video and audio recordings and other information about individuals in the United States and Syria who were protesting the government of Syria and to provide these materials to Syrian intelligence agencies in order to silence, intimidate and potentially harm the protestors.
The charges were announced by Lisa Monaco, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; Neil MacBride, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia; and James McJunkin, Assistant Director in Charge of the FBI Washington Field Office.
Soueid, aka “Alex Soueid” or “Anas Alswaid,” a Syrian-born naturalized U.S. citizen, was charged by a federal grand jury on Oct. 5, 2011, in a six-count indictment in the Eastern District of Virginia. Soueid is charged with conspiring to act and acting as an agent of the Syrian government in the United States without notifying the Attorney General as required by law; two counts of providing false statements on a firearms purchase form; and two counts of providing false statements to federal law enforcement.
Soueid was arrested on Oct. 11, 2011, and will make an initial appearance before U.S. Magistrate Judge Theresa C. Buchanan today at 2:00 p.m. If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison on the conspiracy and foreign agent charges, 15 years in prison on the firearms purchase charges and 10 years in prison on the false statement charges.
“Today’s indictment alleges that the defendant acted as an unregistered agent of the Syrian government as part of an effort to collect information on people in this country protesting the Syrian government crack-down. I applaud the many agents, analysts and prosecutors who helped bring about today’s case,” said Assistant Attorney General Monaco.
“The ability to assemble and protest is a cherished right in the United States, and it’s troubling that a U.S. citizen from Leesburg is accused of working with the Syrian government to identify and intimidate those who exercise that right,” said U.S. Attorney MacBride. “Spying for another country is a serious threat to our national security, especially when it threatens the ability of U.S. citizens to engage in political speech within our own borders.”
“Our national security is threatened when foreign governments use unregistered agents in an attempt to influence and intimidate those who live here lawfully,” said FBI Assistant Director in Charge McJunkin. “Their alleged acts desecrate the values cherished in our fair and open society. The FBI will be counted on to detect and deter unregistered agents who attempt clandestine activities on behalf of a foreign political power and work to bring them swiftly to justice.”
According to the indictment, since March 2011, Soueid has acted in the United States as an agent of the Syrian Mukhabarat, which refers to the intelligence agencies for the Government of Syria, including the Syrian Military Intelligence and General Intelligence Directorate. At no time while acting as an agent of the government of Syria in this country did Soueid provide prior notification to the Attorney General as required by law, the indictment alleges.
Under the direction and control of Syrian officials, Soueid is accused of recruiting individuals living in the United States to collect information on and make audio and video recordings of protests against the Syrian regime – including recordings of conversations with individual protestors – in the United States and Syria. He is also charged with providing the recordings and other information to individuals working for the Mukhabarat. According to the indictment, Soueid and others conspired to use this information to undermine, silence, intimidate and potentially harm those in the United States and Syria who engaged in the protests.
The indictment states that in late June 2011, the Syrian government paid for Soueid to travel to Syria, where he met with intelligence officials and spoke with President Bashar al-Assad in private.
He returned to the United States in early July 2011, and he was searched and questioned at Dulles International Airport upon his arrival. The indictment states that Soueid communicated with his “boss,” an unindicted co-conspirator (or UCC-1) who was working for the Mukhabarat, soon after to alert him of the search and questioning and to assure the individual that the airport encounter would not “stop the project.”
In addition to the recordings, Soueid is accused of providing the Mukhabarat contact information, including phone numbers and email addresses, for protestors in the United States. In a handwritten letter sent to UCC-1, Soueid allegedly expressed his belief that violence against protestors – including raiding their homes – was justified and that any method should be used to deal with the protestors. The indictment also alleges that Soueid provided information regarding U.S. protestors against the Syrian regime to an individual who worked at the Syrian Embassy in Washington, D.C.
On Aug. 3, 2011, FBI agents interviewed Soueid, and the indictment accuses him of lying to the agents when he denied that he had collected information on U.S. persons and transmitted that information to the government of Syria. In addition, Soueid allegedly made further false statements when he denied to FBI agents that he had directed someone to audio or videotape a conversation, meeting, rally or protest, or that he was aware of any individual taking photographs or videotaping people. He also allegedly made false statements when he denied that he had ever been an agent of the Syrian government or a foreign intelligence officer.
The indictment states that the day following the interview, Soueid asked UCC-1 to inform the Mukhabarat about his FBI interview.
In addition, the indictment alleges that, when purchasing a Beretta pistol on July 11, 2011, Soueid listed a false current residence address on a firearms purchase application and in records that were kept by a licensed firearms dealer.
This investigation is being conducted by the FBI’s Washington Field Office with assistance from the Loudon County, Va., Sheriff’s Office. The prosecution is being handled by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Dennis Fitzpatrick and Neil Hammerstrom of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Virginia and Trial Attorney Brandon L. Van Grack of the Counterespionage Section of the Justice Department’s National Security Division.
The public is reminded that an indictment contains mere allegations and that a defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Muslim "Tolerance" of Christians in Egypt
When building a church in Egypt here are a few of the hoops that the Muslim majority puts on Coptic Christians.
After painful negotiations, the so-called Muslim leaders finally said that they were willing to permit resumal of construction work, but only if Christians meet four conditions.But hey that's cool because humiliating Jews and Christians is like totally in the Koran.
First, the hardliners insisted that the churchwould not use bells; second, no loudspeakers would be mounted on the front of the edifice; third, no crucifixes would hang on the outside of the church; fourth, the dome must be torn down and removed entirely.
The besieged Copts, under pressure to salvage their hopes of rebuilding their church, compromised. They agreed not to hang any bells, figuring that most of the Christian congregation live around the church anyways. They also accepted the condition not to use outdoor loudspeakers, reminding their audience that Christians do not broadcast their masses through speakers as Muslims in Egypt do.
However, Copts objected to the condition of not hanging crosses outside the church since, they argued, the crucifix is a symbol of their faith and at the heart of Christianity.
Still, after a lot of pressure from the officials and the Muslim hardliners, and in order for construction of the church not to stop under the pretext of security conditions, Christians compromised yet again, and agreed to place the crosses inside the church.
Fight against those who believe not in Allâh, nor in the Last Day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allâh and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islâm) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”No wedding bells, no speakers, no dome, no crosses or a Muslim mob will destroy your property and murder a few of you. See that's called "tolerance".
Pandemonium in Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab's Pants
UPDATE: Pleads Guilty!
Airline passenger Michael Zantow realized something was amiss on Flight 253 to Detroit when he heard a passenger tell Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab: "Hey, dude, your pants are on fire."Bwaaahahhahaaa!
Over Abdulmutallab's objections, the prosecution also may show a photo of his burned genitalia. U.S. District Judge Nancy Edmunds on Tuesday said she didn't object to the photo being shown.Ouch.
Update: Rather than suffer the humiliation of having his crispy junk exposed to the jury Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab has changed his plea to guilty.
Smartest move he's ever made, although I'm sure disappointed I didn't get to write a post on the jury's reaction to his overcooked wiener.
UPDATE by Rusty: Wow, I don't think any one saw this one coming, but his explanation is par for the course for a member of al Qaeada. I broke your law, but God wanted me to kill you!
Accused underwear bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab pleaded guilty to eight criminal charges, including conspiring to commit terrorism, in a major surprise on the second day of his trial....How about I laugh at you now, and then I laugh at you later, and then I laugh at you later some more??
Abdulmutallab, in fluent English, then read from a lengthy statement saying he was guilty under U.S. law, but not under Islamic law, for the crimes charged.
He said he tried to carry out the bombing in retaliation for the murder of innocent civilians by the United States in Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Israel and elsewhere.
He warned that a calamity would befall the U.S. if it continued to murder innocent Muslims worldwide...
"If you laugh at us now, we will laugh at you later," he said in the statement.
It's not he who laughs last that laughs hardest. Sometimes, it's just the guy who didn't just blow up his own penis!

Gilad Shalit to be released in exchange for 1,000..."humans"
Good news, of course, for Shalit, who is a life worth saving.
As I commented at Hot Air, I think they should make sure Shalit is in safety, and then liquify these pieces of human driftwood. Screw their demands.
Yes, a society that takes hostages is a society that supports terrorism.
Taking hostages is indicative of, you know, terrorism.
No quarter for terrorists. Ever.
Just Goes To Show - One Israeli Soldier Is Worth A Thousand Palestinian Terrorists
(Reuters) - Israel and Gaza's Hamas Islamist rulers agreed on Tuesday to swap more than 1,000 Palestinian prisoners for Israeli captive soldier Gilad Shalit, resolving one of the most emotive and intractable issues between them.
I'll believe it when I see it. I just hope Shalit is alive and well. He hasn't been seen since 2009. That was on videotape and he didn't look in the best of health then.
It disgusts me how the left in America pretend to be so supportive of human rights, but they've ignored the plight of Shalit while embracing Palestinian terrorists. America is condemn for playing loud music to imprisoned terrorists. Hamas is ignored when it abuses, tortures, and executes prisoners. (WARNING! Use caution clicking the links. The videos contain very graphic content. I've linked to comments rather than video so you can read about the contents before watching. I warn you though, they are bad.)
How did we ever come to the point of accepting such double standards?

Breaking: Iran Terror Plot in US Thwarted
UPDATED: Could have killed US Senators
Wow, this is big. Iran is the largest state sponsor of terror in the world, but the Islamic Republic is usually smart enough to a) use proxies; b) only hit US interests overseas.
Would this be the first time Iran had sponsored a terror attack within the US itself? I'm racking my brain for the answer, but maybe one of you knows something that I'm forgetting.
FBI and DEA agents have disrupted a plot to commit a "significant terrorist act in the United States" tied to Iran, federal officials told ABC News today.Expect updates....
The officials said the plot included the assassination of the Saudi Arabian ambassador to the United States, Adel Al-Jubeir, with a bomb and subsequent bomb attacks on the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington, D.C. Bombings of the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Buenos Aires, Argentina, were also discussed, according to the U.S. officials.
U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder said in an announcement today that the plan was "conceived, sponsored and was directed from Iran" and called it a "flagrant" violation of U.S. and international law.
UPDATE: More from the Blotter:
The Iranian-American, identified by federal officials as Manssor Arbabsiar, 56, reportedly claimed he was being "directed by high-ranking members of the Iranian government," including a cousin who was "a member of the Iranian army but did not wear a uniform," according to a person briefed on the details of the case. Counter-terrorism officials said they believe the cousin may be part of the special operations unit of the Revolutionary Guard, the Quds force.Apparently Arbabsiar met with
Arbabsiar and a second man, Gohlam Shakuri, an Iranian official, were named in a five-count criminal complaint filed Tuesday afternoon in federal court in New York. They were charged with conspiracy to kill a foreign official and conspiracy to use a weapon of mass destruction, a bomb, among other counts. Shakuri is still at large in Iran, Holder said.
The complaint also refers to another Iranian official but does not name him.
In other words, this was a sting -- but a sting in which an Iranian agent was trying to hire members of a drug cartel to kill the Saudi Ambassador.
Arbabsiar was also trying to work out a deal in which Iran would help the Mexican drug cartels by supplying them with Opium.
Bring down the Great Satan from within.
This is big, and should it pan out that Arbabsiar and the others were actually being directed by the Iranian government? Ed Morrissey is making the case that this is an act of war:
If we’re charging an official of the Iranian government with complicity or worse in this plot, then it ceases to be a law enforcement issue and becomes a military and political issue instead.Expect more updates.
UPDATE: I'm reading the complaint, and I see some of the early details above were wrong. I've tried to correct them above, but expect more updates.
UPDATE: Wow, so when they arrested Arbabsier he admitted everything. They have him on tape, prior to the arrest, saying that his cousin is a member of the Qods Force and that in Iran he met with two other Qods Force members who he was told were senior officers. One of them gives him the money for the assassination plot.
When he's arrested he fingers two senior Qods Force members from photos shown to him by the FBI. These photos, says the complaint, were not publicly available.
After he was arrested he then placed several monitored phone calls back to Iran in which he and Shakuri discuss the plot.
One thing, though, the complaint makes clear that the original plan was that the Iranians wanted the Mexican Drug Cartel to kidnap the Saudi Ambassador, but kill him if necessary. As the plot evolves, the DEA informant says that the easiest thing would be to kill the Saudi Ambassador at a restaurant that he visits at least twice a week.
It's at this point that he asks whether or not the Iranians would accept collateral damage? It's made clear that they would prefer just the Saudi Ambassador killed -- no others. But, if the only way to kill him was to blow up the restaurant and risk others being killed, so be it.
So, the plot seemed to evolve from one where the Iranians just wanted the Saudi Ambassador kidnapped, to one where he is assassinated, to one where they were willing to kill large numbers of people.
One interesting tidbit is that the DEA informant tells Arbabsiar that the restaurant that the Saudi Ambassador frequents is also frequented by U.S. Senators, but Arbabsiar says to go ahead and do it -- even if it means killing Senators.
Cowardly Friends of Jihadi Chickenhawk Samir Khan Praise his "Martyrdom" ... from Safety of Mom's Basement (bumped)
The former colleagues of Samir Khan at the Ansar Mujahideen English Forum (AMEF) have released a statement lamenting his death and that of Anwar al-Awlaki.
Khan, who was killed last week in a drone strike targeting the al Qaeda leader Awlaki, was once a moderator at the AMEF forum. After his blog was removed by several companies from their webservers for violating terms-of-service for supporting terrorism, Khan was offered space on the AMEF server where his blog remained until he left to join al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.
The AMEF statement first confirms that Anwar al-Awlaki was a member of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, something that some fringe elements in the US have claimed was not 'proved'. These elements, mostly in the fringe left but also from Ron Paul, claim that Awlaki's killing was 'illegal' since he had not been 'convicted' of any crime. However, the members the AMEF forum -- many of whom had online relationships with Awlaki and who therefore would be in a better position to judge the matter than, say, Ron Paul -- beg to differ. Awlaki, they say, was al Qaeda:
But even among the very few scholars who dare to speak the Truth, Imam Anwar al-Awlaki was still a rarity. For he was not content to merely talk about Jihad, he wanted to 'practice what he preached'. He left a comfortable life in America and made Hijrah to Yemen, and joined his brothers in Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula.The members of the forum would be even more intimately aware of the details of Samir Khan. Khan spent many hours a week on the forum and personally communicated with many of its members. Further, some of these forum members would know Khan in real life, through his mosque in Charlotte or his association with the radicals in New York's Islamic Thinkers Society and the more radical Revolution Muslim group.
So, who better to judge whether Khan was a member of a terrorist organization or not than his friends?
Our brother Samir, may Allah have mercy on him, is well-known to all the members of the English-speaking jihadi forums. He was a frequent contributor on the forums, and via his blogs, until he also decided to answer the call of Amir Abu Baseer [ed note: Abu Basir Nasir al-Wuhayshi, the leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula] (may Allah protect him) and make Hijrah to Yemen.So, Samir went to Yemen not to -- as he allegedly told his parents -- "learn Arabic", but to join AQAP.
As Samir himself stated, that he was "al Qaeda all the way."
While this much is true, the next statement by Samir's friends at AMEF is not:
Our brother used the same online username consistently: Inshallahshaheed.This is not true. After the popular press outed Samir and his pro-al Qaeda writings brought unwanted attention, he switched his name to Abu Risaas -- which means "father of Risaas". In other words, he tried to downplay the Inshallahshaheed name, which means "God willing, a martyr".
Did Samir want to die a 'martyr' for the cause of al Qaeda? I doubt it.
If he really wanted to do jihad, then why didn't he follow his own advice and attack Americans on American soil? He was blogging from the safety of his mommy's Charlotte, N.C. basement -- literally -- for years. As a writer for al Qaeda, he urged Muslims in the West to attack civilians in the West.
Yet, when all was said and done, he did nothing.
And yes, he went to Yemen to join his mentor Anwar al-Awlaki and become part of al Qaeda. But which part?
The part of al Qaeda that actually does something? The part that picks up a gun and fights? The part that is willing to put their life on the line in battle?
No, the part that ... writes magazine articles encouraging others to do what they were not themselves willing to do.
In the end, Samir Khan was nothing more than a coward. He lived a coward, he died a coward.
Just like his friends at the AMEF forum. All of whom are vocal in their support of violent jihad .... from the safety of their mommy's basement!
Samir Khan and AMEF: the chickenhawks of jihad!
H/T: Censord31, blogging his support of al Qaeda from the safety of Belgium.
Herman Cain, Uncle Tom
One of my favorite television shows from the 70's was The Jeffersons. Who could forget George's arrogant strut, the catchphrase "Wheezy!", their wisecracking maid Florence...
The series tackled many controversial issues of the time, but I remember one episode in particular. Louise's uncle Ward comes to visit. George takes an immediate dislike to him because he happily worked for white people as a butler. Throughout the episode, George refers to him as "Uncle Tom."
As in most of the episodes, there's a lesson to be learned. In the end, George learns being an "Uncle Tom" is only a bad thing to those too ignorant to learn their history.
This is the episode "Lionel Cries Uncle," trimmed down to a 4 minute minisode:
So, the next time someone calls any black conservative an "Uncle Tom," you'll know its either a compliment or the person is very ignorant.

Underwear Bomber Trial Begins
The trial of the Christmas Day 'underwear bomber', Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, begins in Detroit today. Abdulmutallab will act in his own defense, which proves the old adage about a lawyer representing himself has a fool for a client.
Earlier today the judge denied the defense's motion to suppress the word 'bomb' from the trial. Lulz.
Since Abdulmutallab's guilt is certain, what many of us are looking for are details on the relationship between Abdulmutallab and Anwar al-Awlaki. I'll also be keen to know if Abdulmutallab had communicated with Samir Khan while he was a student in London.
That, and the laughs. Expect lots and lots of laughs.
Reminder: The KGB Loved the Guardian
Not "news", per se, but still worth the reminder. CIF Watch:
Gott was not the only Guardian journalist to be targeted and Gordievsky claimed that Gott’s newspaper was of special interest to Soviet intelligence.That certainly explains a lot.
“The KGB loved the Guardian,” he says. “It was deemed highly susceptible to penetration.”
The Guardian’s current associate editor, Seumas Milne, is still an apologist for Soviet Communism and began his “journalistic” career as a contributor to the decidedly pro-Stalinist Communist Party publication, Straight Left.
Milne, in a 2001 essay, expressed regret over the fall of the Soviet Empire, which, during the height of its power, enslaved half of Europe under its totalitarian yoke, and killed maybe 60 million human beings (give or take a few million).
Milne especially lamented “The removal of the only state that could challenge the power of the US militarily”.

Oh God! The Brutality, The Humanity! Eleventy@#@!!Seven#$$#@
Last night police in Boston made some protesters move back to their original protest area after they took over a new area for their camp.
So this morning I'm reading up on that, written accounts are of brutality against "war veterans".
Reuters: ensions boiled over in the early hours of Tuesday in downtown Boston, where police arrested about 100 protesters after the Occupy Boston group expanded its footprint and was told by authorities to backtrack.So I thought, you know, that I'd better check that out. The brutality, the abuse. OMG@^%$@
Protesters said late on Monday that police had given participants an ultimatum to return to their small original encampment by nightfall or be moved along.
But it was not until after 1 a.m. ET Tuesday when hundreds of Boston and Transit police officers, some in riot gear, moved in on the group, handcuffing protesters and tearing down tents.
"At 1:30 this morning hundreds of police in full riot gear brutally attacked Occupy Boston," the group said in a news release, adding that authorities "made no distinction between protesters, medics, or legal observers."
So I went over to Youtube to check it out.
OMG!!!! Isn't that terrible? I hope those dudes are alright. I mean that was like totally savage and stuff.....
What? Well maybe they are just out of practice, you know the 60's was a long time ago. Maybe they just need inspiration.
That ought to do it, I promise busted skulls and blood on tomorrow's post, hopefully.
British and US naval forces have rescued an Italian ship hijacked by Somali pirates, says the Italian foreign ministry.Italy has announced plans to station military personnel on ships passing through the area after this incident, or so NPR said this morning.
The 56,000-ton bulk carrier Montecristo was hijacked 620 miles off Somalia on Monday by pirates in a small boat, according to the owners.
The ministry said that 11 pirates had been detained.

Al Qaeda Confirms Solidarity with Moveon.org, ACLU and Ron Paul
Like an enormous black hole the nuttiness of the fringes all seem to be on opposite ends of the event horizon, until suddenly you realize that they converge in a quantum singularity of disconnectedness so from reality that some theoretical physicists posit an alternate universe of craziness:
Al Qaeda’s Yemeni wing charged the U.S. violated its own Constitution and laws in the targeted killing of Anwar al-Awlaki, according to a statement on Monday confirming the American-born cleric is dead.More evidence of the bizarro convergence of al Qaeda supporters and Ron Paulians: Linda G. Richards, noted online al Qaeda supporter, also claims that Samir Khan was innocent and that Ron Paul is awesome.
Like presidential candidate Ron Paul and others who have condemned the killing as an unconstitutional, Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula used a legal argument to attack the drone assassination of the cleric and another American citizen, Samir Khan, who produced the Al Qaeda web magazine Inspire...
AQAP joined other critics — including presidential candidates Paul and Gary Johnson and organizations such the ACLU — in accusing the U.S. of acting unconstitutionally by assassinating a U.S. citizen without due process.
#OccupyBoston Hosts Supporters of Accused Terrorist Supporter and Online Jihadi Tarek Mehanna
Because,you know, shooting shoppers at malls and murdering President Bush is just the kind of dream that well balanced young people aspire to these days.
The downtown protest group Occupy Boston threw its proverbial doors open yesterday, and played host to supporters of accused terrorist Terak Mehanna, who are looking to raise awareness of the Sudbury man’s upcoming trial.Terak Mehanna assisted in disseminating al-Qaeda's online propaganda, ran a terror supporting blog and dreamed of mowing down shoppers in malls with a machine gun.
The Tarek Mehanna Support Committee came to Occupy Boston’s ever-evolving tent city on the Rose Kennedy Greenway to say Mehanna, a Muslim American pharmacist, is a victim of anti-Muslim sentiment.
The U.S. government says Mehanna, 28, provided “material support to a designated foreign terrorist organization,” and acted as a “media wing” for al-Qaeda.
So now prosecuting terrorists is actually anti-Muslim? If that's the case then Muslims must be pro-terrorism?
Just asking questions people, just asking questions.

#OccupyWallStreet a bunch of losers on a traffic island
Just got a call of someone who went at lunch for a look-see:
- its a tiny patch of land that is formed by a traffic triangle, not really a park
- 1/3 of protesters are people in their 70's normally dressed but carrying bizarre signs (old hippies)
- 1/3 are college age sitting on garbage bags who look very, very stoned and take turns leading the group chants
- one older man sitting at a table with three battered hardhats left there in support
- 20% at least were pedestrian gawkers just walking through and pointing
- most of the black people were in one corner gathered around Al Sharpton
- Susan Surandon
- the homeless who had been living there before are all pushed into one corner
- some of the elderly were standing on boxes around the perimeter facing out and reading the constitution
All in all, a media sham by the libtards. There's more people at a bingo game.

Abu Sayyaf Attacks Christian Festival
Lets dispense with pretension that Muslims have anything against cock fighting or boxing and get down to the real reason they bombed the festival. Its because Catholic Christians were gathered together to celebrate the Patron Saint of Manila St. Francis the Tearful. Whom Today can't even bring itself to name lest it offend.
Hard to pass up that many infidels all in one place.
Today: Al Qaeda-linked Abu Sayyaf militants are among the key suspects in two bombings that wounded 11 people in a cockfighting arena and a budget hotel in a southern Philippine city, where security has been tightened for an annual Roman Catholic festival, officials said today.Its quite a statement on the Religion of Peace that whenever Christians gather, for whatever reason, security must be tightened if there is a large Muslim population nearby.
What's up with that?
Saudi Arabia to Try 85 al-Qaeda Members
They are just now getting around to trying those responsible for murdering foreign workers in Riyadh on 2003. Justice is swift in Islam, unless the dead are infidels.
Saudi Arabia has started to try 85 alleged members of an Al-Qaeda-linked cell which attacked three housing compounds for foreigners in the capital Riyadh in 2003, local newspapers reported on Monday.Background here.
The attacks, which took place on a single night, killed 20 people according to Saudi Arabia's official news agency, and marked the start of a violent al Qaeda campaign that included plots against military bases, foreigners and industrial and energy facilities between 2003 to 2006.
A spokesman from the Justice Ministry did not respond to calls or messages for comment about the trial.
Saudi Arabia, the world's number one oil exporter, eventually ended the Al-Qaeda campaign after arresting thousands of people suspected of aiding militants, and enlisting senior Saudi clerics to denounce Osama bin Laden's network as un-Islamic.
Those on trial are said to belong to the Dandani cell, named after Turki al-Dandani who was killed in a shoot-out with security forces in 2003, and are accused of killing and wounding 239 people in attacks on the compounds and other targets.
So do we infidels get to attend the beheadings?
AQAP confirms Anwar al Awalki still dead

State violence against Copts in Maspiro Egypt: Video
Military tanks run down protesters and troops beat citizens with clubs:
The transition government has tortured protesters, arrested bloggers and re-instituted the emergency laws; it is encouraging sectarianism in the state media against Copts, who were protesting a church burning and the arrest of a blogger when attacked. An incomplete regime change, leaving the military in charge, resulted in a rebirth of brutality and tyranny.
Photos of the protest before it was attacked are here. At least 30 were killed and then the military attacked the hospital.

Wisconsin: Muslim Attacks Man For "Criticizing" Islam
The victim claims he never criticized Islam, but when has that ever stopped an Islamist from falsely accusing someone and then extracting his own brand of Sharia justice?
The victim denies that he criticized Islam, but that is neither here nor there. He as an American has the right to do so if he so chooses. The islam rage boy on the other hand does NOT have the right to beat anyone with a tire iron even if they criticized the religion of pieces. Send him packing to what ever Islamic hell hole he or his ancestors (what ever the case may be) slithered out from.
Will the attacker be charged with a hate crime? Probably not. You see, he's really the victim here. Islamophobia and all that....

WTF? State Apologizes to Dead Terrorist's Family (Updated)
I'm not sure if I should be laughing at this or getting really, really pissed off.
On the one hand, we pay the State Department to lie. And, if saying you're sorry for killing a terrorist isn't a lie, then I don't know what is!
On the other hand, what if Obama and Clinton's State Department really were sorry they killed the al Qaeda propagandist and self-styled proud traitor?
If that's the America we live in, then it's time to pack it in and call it quits. I hear France is nice this time of year, and at least they are right up front about their disdain for America.
"They were very apologetic (for not calling the family sooner) and offered condolences," Jibril Hough said about the Thursday call from the State Department to Khan's father, Zafar....So, we kill a terrorist and then we .... apologize to the family for killing the terrorist? What's next, paying the parents of suicide bombers, like Hamas and Fatah?
Hough said the Thursday conversation lasted a few minutes. "It wasn't just 'I'm sorry' and hang-up," said Hough, who added that the phone call included no discussion of the status or condition of Khan's remains.
Please tell me this is part of some larger duplicity which leads to the entire Kahn family being deported and/or indicted?
I've always had a rather low opinion of State. But after this, I'm left to wonder which side of the War on Terror they're really pulling for?
UPDATE: Thanks to AllahP over at Hot Air for the hat tip.
Let me just respond to one thing AllahP says:
They’re being careful to draw a distinction between people like Awlaki, whom the White House suspected of operational planning, and Khan, who appears to have been exclusively a propagandist...The argument he is making, I think, isn't that Khan didn't deserve to die -- he did -- but that the Obama administration is pandering to the base which has taken to calling the killings of Awlaki and Kahn "the assassination of American citizens by the President."
If they’re targeting people only for their rhetoric, no matter how toxic that might be, it puts them on even thinner ice with civil libertarians given the very high bar for dangerous speech under the First Amendment
What I want to point out to readers who may not know the background on Khan is that what he published was not just fiery rhetoric in support of al Qaeda. No, he published actual bomb making instructions. Khan's bomb making instructions were followed by Naser Abdo, who was arrested before he could detonate the bomb near Fort Hood.
So, even under our rather broadly protective post-Brandenburg 1st Amendment jurisprudence what Khan was advocating would not be protected since his publications did actually incite people to violence -- which was exactly his point.
For crissake, this was a guy who advocated killing American civilians in malls and nightclubs!
If this is the base that Obama's State Department is pandering to -- one that cannot distinguish a traitor from ordinary citizens -- then God help us.

Marvi: Virus Infects Drone Fleet Computers
If the computers we use to fly Predator and Reaper missions can be infected by a keylogging virus, then they can be infected by even worse ones. Which means our military networks are nowhere near safe.
The story begs the obvious question: if the virus was intentionally targeted at our military instillation, then who is behind it?
China and Iran come immediately to mind, but let's not leave Russia out of the usual suspects lineup.
And could this be the work of a non-state actor? Say, the Anonymous hackers.
If so, would this qualify as an act of terrorism?
“We keep wiping it off, and it keeps coming back,” says a source familiar with the network infection, one of three that told Danger Room about the virus. “We think it’s benign. But we just don’t know.”If this turns out to be true, then it seems to me that the worst part is that the US military doesn't know how to remove the virus. I'm not 100% sure, but I think most of that kind of work is done by civilian contractors. I have a couple of buddies who do this kind of work. And if those guys can't fix this? Then we are in some deep sh*t.
Military network security specialists aren’t sure whether the virus and its so-called “keylogger” payload were introduced intentionally or by accident; it may be a common piece of malware that just happened to make its way into these sensitive networks. The specialists don’t know exactly how far the virus has spread. But they’re sure that the infection has hit both classified and unclassified machines at Creech. That raises the possibility, at least, that secret data may have been captured by the keylogger, and then transmitted over the public internet to someone outside the military chain of command.
#OccupyWallStreet Video Lies
But it's not really a surprise....
First, here is the video #OccupyWallstreet wants you to see:
It looks brutal; the police are striking protesters with batons.
But what these protesters don't want you to see is what happened seconds before that provoked the police response. In the video below, you can hear the protesters counting down and then rushing the police. At least one officer is struck in the head by a protester (@00:10). Another can be seen kicking an officer (@00:15). The police repeatedly order the protesters to "Get back" and they ignore the orders:

Saudi Paper: Switzerland is Jewish Plot!
Every society to has its crazies. But the fact that this sh*t passes the editorial smell test in Saudi Arabia? That says there is something deeply dysfunctional in the Kingdom:
In his column in the Saudi daily Al-Riyadh, titled "The Swiss Secret," Fahd 'Amr Al-Ahmadi claimed that Switzerland's traditional neutrality was part of a Jewish plot to incite wars and control the world's wealth by means of the country's banks. He noted that this was in accordance with The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.Antisemitism: its alive and well in the Muslim world.
Did Samir Khan Kill Anwar al Awlaki?
I don't mean did he literally kill Awlaki, I mean did the publication of Inspire magazine help the CIA find where Awlaki was? Clint Watts has an excellent analysis of the Awlaki/Khan strike, and media and CT reaction to it. Here's a nugget:
Did the push to publish Inspire magazine volume number 7 bring Awlaki and Khan’s demise?: Awlaki and Khan’s commitment to publishing an almost monthly AQ journal in the end may have led to their demise. As any publishing company or university would probably tell you, issuing a monthly journal is a heavy burden (that’s why they do quarterly journals). Producing Inspire required transmission by courier at a minimum and ideally development electronically. All of these methods transmit signatures for targeting. So an operational security versus operational effectiveness conundrum arose for Awlaki and Khan. To be relevant, these two had to publish and preach via the Internet. To be safe in the presence of intense surveillance, Awlaki and Khan had to hunker down and minimize communication. I’ll be interested to hear if it’s ever explained why the U.S. regained Awlaki’s tail several weeks back. [READ THE REST]As much as I made fun of Samir, due to our half decade long public feud, I'll give him this: he was no dummy.
Which means he must have been aware of the risk he was taking whenever he got on his Facebook account or uploaded a new issue of Inspire magazine. The fact that there were only three original authors in the last issue of Inspire may be interpreted as evidence that they had finally "hunkered down" in an effort to avoid detection.
But, they still had to publish the magazine. Without the magazine, Khan was irrelevant and Awlaki less relevant.
So, is it just a coincidence that the magazine hit the forums only a few days before the pair were killed? More than that, the electronic signature on the PDF file indicates that the magazine was completed about the 19th of Sept. -- just about the time that the powers that be seem to have relocated Awlaki.
That would be some coincidence.
Takeaway: keep doing that thing you do eHadis!
UPDATE: Oops, I put Oct. 19th. I meant, Sept. 19th.

Yemeni Activist wins Nobel Prize
I'm so pleased that Tawakkol Karaman won the Nobel Peace Prize along with two other female activists. Tawakkol is an amazing woman who led protests every Tuesday for two years in a row--prior to the revolution. A journalist, Tawakkol was denied a newspaper license and championed media freedom, putting out a semi-annual comprehensive report on all the violations against journalists as well as a comprehensive report detailing corruption in Yemen--who stole what when and how it added up to billions embezzled annually. She is a leader of today's Yemeni revolution, always on the front line facing down the rifles. Update: Tawakkol is also on the leadership council of the uber-scary Islah political party, the Islamic Reform Party, which is quite diverse; many members are young vibrant pro-democracy reformists.
I'm reprinting a 2005 letter Tawakkol wrote to the American people after Hurricane Catrina:
9/6/05 Dear Jane Novak, My name is Tawakkul A. Karman, I'm from Yemen, and I'm a journalist, at the same time I'm the Chairwoman of Women Journalists Without Borders. I'm sending to you this letter with my best regards, wishing this letter would find you in best health, and to share with the American people during this hard time they are passing through now and was caused by "Catrina" hurricane. Brother Abdulkarim al-khaiwany has informed me to contact you because you would be the best person who can convey our condolences to the American People (either governmental or non-governmental offices), you would find an attachment condolences letter attached to this e-mail. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Chairwoman of Women Journalists Without Borders Tawakkul A. Karman
To the Victims of "Catrina" hurricane:
Yemeni Women Journalists Without Borders, is sending to you their best regards hoping this letter would find you in a best shape, at the same time we would like to express to you our condolences for the victims of "Catrina" hurricane. We're sure that the American nation will pass this tragedy with more strength, and hope for brighter future. God Bless you all.
Women Journalists Without Borders.
Tawakkul A. Karman
A 2008 post: Tawwakkol Karaman is an AMAZING woman who is under severe threat from the Yemeni regime for her civil society work. She is currently in fear for her life and is also getting threats on kids. They write nasty stuff about her in the yellow tabloids. Why? Because she, like al-Khaiwani, believes in democracy and freedom of speech. (Also Yemen is ranked the number one most gender unequal society in the world, so she faces a second set of challenges.) Some of her reports on press freedom are here
This is a 2007 profile I wrote about Tawakkol:
Tawakol Karman is the founder and Chairwoman of Women Journalists Without Chains (WJC). Ms. Karaman is an effective Yemeni activist dedicated to advancing press freedom in Yemen. Hood on Line, the Yemeni National Organization for Defending Rights and Freedoms, notes that Tawakul Karman has been harassed for more than a year. For example, she received a phone call November 12, 2007 from the Yemeni phone number (011-967)734606844 in which she was accused of undermining national unity because she attended public rallies in Radfan and Dhalie which called for enhanced democracy. She received death threats on herself and her children and was ordered to stay at home, which she did not. Ms. Karman also received numerous lewd messages repeating the slander published in the attack newspapers, Al-Dastor and Al-Belad.
On December 1, 2007 Political Security Organization confiscated WJC documents on press freedom during a civil society exhibition. Ms. Karman and WJC have also been denied a newspaper license despite fulfilling legal requirements. The organization was originally called Female Reporters Without Borders, but a regime-loyal clone was issued a license for the same name.
Among Ms. Karman's many accomplishments is the production of the Semi-Annual Press Freedom Report which showed an uptick in assaults on Yemeni journalists with 53 recorded in 2005 and 69 in 2006. Another WJC report tallies hundreds of assaults on journalistic freedom by perpetrator and finds the National Security Organization the biggest violator. The Ministry of Information, Ministry of Interior, Political Security Office and the Military Guidance Unit also committed numerous attacks.
She lead journalists in a weekly sit-in protesting a regime ban on text message news alerts. At the seventh weekly sit-in by journalists in Sana'a, Ms. Karman explained, “While we are holding this sit-in for the sake of freedom of expression and the right of having its media means, we salute journalist, Abdulkareem Al-Khaiwani, and announce our solidarity with him, considering him one of the pioneers of freedom of expression” She added. “The good pressmen are being violated, imprisoned, abducted, beaten, and wiretapped all over Yemen.” After fourteen weeks, the ban was reversed with the exception of WJC's text messages, which remained banned.
In the highly conservative Islamic country, "Karman is one of very few Yemeni women who removed her face veil publicly to prove that Islam doesn't impose the face veil on women, so she used herself as an example," the Yemen Times noted. During the cartoon controversy, Ms. Karman wrote an article, "Burning Embassies Is Not the Way", which stated, "We are not to call for tyranny and bans on freedom."
Speaking at a forum against organized violence, Tawakol Karman said she could not find herself offended in “an offended country in general”. She noted, “ I have received many critical messages about alleged relations with American and about my parent’s remorse to get a girl like me. But many Yemeni men face more violence than women,” NewsYemen reported. In the recent past, the death threats on Tawwaol Karaman and her children intensified and she is currently in fear for her life.
This is the face of today's Yemeni Revolution.
Update: if you have two minutes, listen to young blogger/activist Afrah Nasser (first link) for a real sense of Yemenis, the revolution and what the prize means. And an article by Tawakkol from this year in the Guardian about the Yemeni revolution. Better photo from today:

Parents of al Qaeda Member Angry at U.S.
Claim Samir Khan was "law abiding citizen" (Bumped)
The parents of al Qaeda propagandist Samir Khan have released a statement in which they claim their son "broke no law" and expressed anger at the U.S. government for killing him.
Broke no law?!?!?!
I am so outraged by this statement from the Khan family that I'm not sure I can actually write this post with any coherence.
Here's the statement:
We, the family of Samir Khan, in our time of grief and mourning, request that the media let us have our peace and privacy during this difficult time.Their son was a "law abiding citizen" who "broke no law"?
It has been stated in the media that Samir was not the target of the attack; however no U.S. official has contacted us with any news about the recovery of our son’s remains, nor offered us any condolences.
As a result, we feel appalled by the indifference shown to us by our government.
Being a law-abiding citizen of the United States, our late son Samir Khan never broke any law and was never implicated of any crime. The Fifth Amendment states that no citizen shall be 'deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law' yet our government assassinated two of its citizens.
Was this style of execution the only solution? Why couldn’t there have been a capture and trial?
Where is the justice? As we mourn our son, we must ask these questions.
The Khan Family.
Are you kidding me?
Samir Khan wrote of himself that he was an American traitor. See for yourselves.
In that same issue of Inspire magazine, Khan wrote that he was "al Qaeda all the way."
Khan was guilty of being a traitor and a terrorist. He was no longer blogging from his parents' basement in Charlotte. He was in Yemen with al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula!
He published a magazine that showed its readers how to make bombs --- and then encouraged them to use those bombs on American citizens!
And the connection between Khan's propaganda and real world terrorism isn't hypothetical: the Fort Hood copycat Naser Abdo was constructing a bomb based on Khan's design when he was captured. It was the same bomb used by Taimour Abdulwahab al-Abdaly in his failed attack in Stocholm last year!
For chrissake he was killed because he was in the same vehicle as Anwar al-Awlaki, the leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula!!!!!
I think the Khan family statement is a clue as to where Samir got his radically anti-American views. The apple doesn't fall far from the tree.
Earlier today, Stable Hand reported that Samir Khan's nickname in his high school yearbook was MUJAHID, and his yearbook quote was from SAUL ALINSKY.
If any one is owed an apology it is the American people from the Khan family for raising a terrorist -- not the other way around.
Further, those on the fringe Left and Right -- who's argument the Khan's have adopted -- who are outraged at Khan and al-Awlaki's killing use the common logical fallacy inherent in all slippery slope arguments when they claim that the President is asserting that he can kill any American at any time without any oversight.
This is complete hogwash. We are not talking about some hypothetical American, we are talking about two very specific Americans -- both of whom belong to an organization that is at war with America!
I'll respond to your hypothetical with this one: what if there were American citizens fighting for Germany in WWII? Would it be "illegal" to kill them on the field of battle?
Of course not!
The GWOT is an unconventional war, but it is war nonetheless. Members of al Qaeda are not "criminals" they are "enemy combatants".
Because of this, Awlaki and Khan are both legitimate targets. In war, you don't give your enemies a trial -- you kill them!
Had the Khan family simply said that they would like to be left alone so they could mourn the loss of their son, that would be understandable. I could live with that.
But claiming the US owes them an apology for killing a terrorist? That crosses a line.
These people deserve whatever hassle they are getting from the media.
Mart Street Movement Turns to the Dark Side
Its pretty funny to watch these guys. First the problem is "big money" in politics. And that's their major criticism of the Tea Party, they call it contrived because it attracted donors and political players. But a couple days later a big Democrat talked them up and like magic Big Labor showed up and soon... ... there was money in it.
Today Cannon Fire goes after Tim Geithner, not because he sucks. But for the Powah!
What I propose is not a final step but a first step. A demonstration of power, if you will.
Power is attractive. Power begets power. You know why so many dolts pay good money for shirts and bags and hats sporting corporate logos? Because those logos are totems of entities considered influential and successful. On a primal level, people want to associate themselves with the large, the impressive -- the powerful.
Force the president to fire Tim Geithner. Force Obama to do one major thing that he clearly does not want to do. Afterwards, both he and all other politicians will take the protesters ultra-seriously.
Everything is proceeding as I have foreseen. With each passing moment they make themselves more my servants.
Join me and together we can
rule the galaxy achieve social justice and save The Republic.
This power you give me I will lay down when this crisis has abated (wink wink, nod nod).

Radical Preacher Anjem Choudary: Is the Assassination of Obama Legal? ***Bumped***(Rebumped/Email Address Corrected by iWeb)
A group of British Islamists, Muslims Against Crusades, may have just stepped over the line of "free speech". Notice the "red spot" on Obama's forehead and the image of a sniper on the left.
Anjem Choudary, one of the groups leaders, knows damn well radical Muslims are upset over the killing of bin Laden and Awlaki. He is using this to light a fire under them. And that, my friends, is sedition and solicitation of murder:
President Barack Obama is treading on very thin ice. In the space of less than half a year he has proceeded to murder what are probably two of the most influential Muslim men in modern day history: Sheikh Usamah bin Laden (rh) and the US citizen Sheikh Anwar al Awlaki (rh)No one should threaten my president and get away with it. Just sayin' ...
His brazen attacks and cowardly drone strikes have shattered any hope of reconciliation, for he has made it clear: America is out to shoot and kill and is taking no prisoners. No negotiations, no rule of law, no due process – nothing.
Human rights and justice have lost all relevance in Obama’s war, as assassination takes over as his preferred weapon of choice. He has managed to convince the whole world that he is right, that murder, rape and torture can be justified as long as you can be labelled as the enemy. Are his actions to be taken as an example for other US citizens to imitate? In light of this we would like to introduce a new question into the psyche of the West by asking: “Is the assassination of President Barack Obama now legal?” What we mean by this is, if the President of America were to be caught off-guard in Washington or St Louis, would his death be justified given his new criteria in light of his horrific track record against Islam and Muslims and his own confessions?
If the answer is no, then we ask, why not? And if the answer is, yes, then we ask how many people would be likely to want to repeat the horrors of 1963 against this very evil man?

Obama Admin Rejects Anti-Islamist Muslim Nominee
Zuhdi Jasser's nomination by Senate Republicans to the State Department’s U.S. Advisory Commission on Public Diplomacy was rejected without explanation by the Obama administration. Over at NRO, James Woolsey wonders why?
Unlike some commission members, Dr. Jasser was not a donor to Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. But something else must have been at work as well. That something might have ranged from a lack of understanding of the dangerousness of jihadism and Islamism to a lack of respect for the muscular advocacy of the ideas of freedom and liberty. And, probably, one other thing was at work too: a political decision based on Dr. Jasser’s open criticism of the administration for its lack of clarity in the war of ideas and its inability to identify the ideology we are fighting.I think it's more than that. The Obama administration is ideologically aligned with the grievance narrative and are therefore comfortable only when alleged "civil rights groups" have a narrow focus on the evils of American society.
So, adding Muslims to the old narrative that minority groups are victims of a hostile society fits in perfectly well with their preconceived world view.
The new narrative has two key plot lines: One, that Muslims become radicalized because either the larger society is prejudiced against them or they are just reacting to US foreign policy -- it's our fault, not the fault of the mosque, community, or online social networking. Two, that the fact that the vast majority of domestic terrorists since 9/11 have been Muslim can be explained by Islamophobia amongst law enforcement officials leading to unfair scrutiny on the Muslim community.
So, the only legitimate representatives of the Muslim community are those who reinforce the narrative of victimhood which is so widely accepted within the Democratic party and more especially in this White House.
This is a White House that thinks every one is treating Obama unfairly .... because he is black.
Zuhdi Jasser just doesn't fit the mold they are looking for. The fact that he blames the Muslim community itself for not responding more forcefully to Islamist tendencies and anti-American rhetoric is taken as evidence that he has swallowed the pill given to him my his masters. He's an Uncle Tom to them.
It's a shame that the Obama Administration has rejected his nomination. But, come on, what did you think they would do?
Possible Pipe Bomb Closes Capitol
A bomb squad is removing a suspicious pipe-like cylinder found in the street near the U.S. Capitol.Would it be wrong of me to speculate that there could be a risk of political violence from the Occupy Wall Street movement Vis-à-vis the Bill Ayers model?
U.S. Capitol Police said Thursday the device was being loaded into a specialized truck operated by their bomb squad and would be taken to Quantico, Va., to be rendered safe. The police statement did not offer more specifics.
The small metal cylinder with some caps on it was found on Pennsylvania Avenue around 7 a.m. Thursday. Authorities haven't been able to determine what it is.
Roads around the Capitol will remain closed until the device is driven away.
Several influential New York lawmakers have received threatening emails saying it is “time to kill the wealthy” if they don’t renew the state’s tax surcharge on the millionaires, according to reports.
“It’s time to tax the millionaires!” reads the email, according to WTEN in Albany. “If you don’t, I’m going to pay a visit with my carbine to one of those tech companies you are so proud of and shoot every spoiled Ivy League [expletive] I can find.”

Indonesian Christians Under Attack
With impunity, says top bishop:
(Vatican City) Islamic fundamentalists in Indonesia, the world’s most populous Muslim nation, are attacking Christians with impunity, the head of Indonesian bishops said on Tuesday during a visit to the Vatican.It seems that 'moderate' Muslims are not stepping up to stop the violence.
“Muslim fanatics are staging violence and denying basic religious freedom and stopping the construction of places of worship and the practice of Christianity,” Martinus Dogma Situmorang told the Vatican’s l’Osservatore Romano daily.
“Alas, these incidents are being tolerated or authorities are turning a blind eye without taking any legal action because in their eyes it is less serious even though they were accompanied by violence,” Situmorang said.
NGO Monitor: Livni Trip to Britain Represents Delegitimization
Had the UK not passed amendments to the “Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill 2010-11 Livni would have been arrested.
Jerusalem - Following the passage of amendments to the UK’s “Police Reform and Social Responsibility Bill 2010-11,” which now requires the consent of the Director of Public Prosecutions before an arrest warrant is issued for a privately-instigated prosecution, opposition leader Tzipi Livni will arrive in Britain on Thursday, October 6 for meetings.Not surprisingly, George Soros funds some of these anti-Semitic groups
“Tzipi Livni’s trip to Britain is a significant achievement against political advocacy NGOs that had hijacked the UK legal system for their own agenda,” says Anne Herzberg, legal advisor for NGO Monitor. “NGOs such as Palestinian Center for Human Rights, Yesh Gvul, Al Haq, and Al Mezan, and their British partners Daniel Machover, the Hickman & Rose Solicitors firm, and Irvine, Thanvi, Natas, and Imran Khan & Partners initiated highly politicized PR stunts in the form of meritless legal cases, all under the guise of ‘justice’ and ‘human rights.’”
Lawfare, which attempts to label Israelis as ‘war criminals,’ is part of the broader Durban strategy, led by NGOs, to delegitimize and politically isolate Israel.
Daniel Machover (co-founder Lawyers for Palestinian Human Rights and head of civil litigation for Hickman & Rose Solicitors) – in concert with the Palestinian Center for Human Rights (PCHR) and Yesh Gvul – submitted evidence files to the Anti-Terrorist and War Crimes Unit of the London Metropolitan police regarding former IDF Southern Command Chief Maj. Gen. (res.) Doron Almog. When police declined to act on the files, lawyers applied for an arrest warrant. Almog traveled to London, but did not leave the plane once he learned of the arrest warrant (Aug. 2005). An unsuccessful suit was filed in 2004 against Shaul Mofaz. PCHR is funded by the EU, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Ford Foundation, Open Society Institute, Oxfam NOVIB; Yesh Gvul’s funding is completely non-transparent.Good on the UK, this is a step in the right direction.
Another step in the right directionthe UK could do is arrest members of the Muslims Against the Crusades for sedition and solicitation of murder. MAC stepped over the line with their press release: "Is the assassination of Obama legal"?
Hey, target practice for us.

RIP Steve Jobs
CNN: Steve Jobs, the visionary in the black turtleneck who co-founded Apple in a Silicon Valley garage, built it into the world's leading tech company and led a mobile-computing revolution with wildly popular devices such as the iPhone, died Wednesday. He was 56.I don't really have a lot of grand things to say about Steve. About what a visionary he was blah blah blah.
The hard-driving executive pioneered the concept of the personal computer and of navigating them by clicking onscreen images with a mouse. In more recent years, he introduced the iPod portable music player, the iPhone and the iPad tablet -- all of which changed how we consume content in the digital age.
His friends and Apple fans on Wednesday night mourned the passing of a tech titan.
"Steve's brilliance, passion and energy were the source of countless innovations that enrich and improve all of our lives," Apple said in a statement. "The world is immeasurably better because of Steve."
More than one pundit, praising Jobs' ability to transform entire industries with his inventions, called him a modern-day Leonardo Da Vinci.
But I will say this.
When I was a young man my school had several Apple computers. It was a small school of about 96 students total. We had an AppleII+ and a couple Apple IIE's with the awesome 80 character green screen display. Which sure beat the 40 character display. But only if you weren't playing Apventure.
Well we had a set of disks that had a Pascal compiler. That did it for me. I'd used BASIC on several home computers of the day. But the compiler was so much faster and the language was so much better.
I ended up writing Lunar Lander for a project and blowing my teachers mind. But in retrospect the game sucked. But that's not the point.
The machines that Apple made back in the late seventies and early 80s is what kindled my interest in computing, they were a real computer that could teach real world concepts that I've been able to use on many platforms ever since.
So thank you Mr. Jobs, not for the iphone or ipad or any of so much of what people thing of as Apple today, but for that first machine, the one that taught me so much. The one that did the most to insure that I could succeed.
I owe you so much.
Our thoughts go out to Mr. Job's friends and family.
Police Capture Beheading Murderer in Philippines, American Hostage Released
I hope they have the death penalty in the Philippines:
Philippine police have arrested an Abu Sayyaf gunman who allegedly helped behead seven Filipino workers while singing a militant song in a grisly 2007 crime, officials said Wednesday....In related news the same group released an American hostage a few days ago:
Mawalil appeared in a video circulated by Abu Sayyaf militants showing them beheading six road project workers and a factory worker while singing a song in a Jolo jungle in 2007. The video helped authorities identify and capture Mawalil in Sulu province's Jolo town, two security officials said.
Muslim militants freed a Filipino-American woman after 2 1/2 months in captivity in the southern Philippines but are still holding her 14-year-old son and a relative, authorities said Monday.Keep those members of her family still in captivity in your prayers.
Gerfa Yeatts Lunsmann was dropped off by boat late Sunday at a wharf and walked to nearby Maluso township on southern Basilan Island, where a patrolling police team picked her up, said military spokesman Lt. Col. Randolph Cabangbang. She was handed over to FBI agents in the Philippines.

Afghans say Karzai assassination plot foiled
Afghan intelligence officials say they have arrested six people who they believe were planning to assassinate President Hamid Karzai[...]h/t @MajorPaulSmyth
Militants have killed a string of high-profile figures in Afghanistan in recent months.
"A dangerous and educated group including teachers and students wanted to assassinate President Hamid Karzai," National Directorate of Security (NDS) spokesman Lutfullah Mashal told a news conference
"Unfortunately they infiltrated the presidential protection system and recruited one of the president's bodyguards."
Mr Mashal said those arrested had ties with a member of al-Qaeda and the Haqqani network based in North Waziristan, in Pakistan's restive tribal belt.
The group was arrested a week ago after members of the elite Afghan forces raided two locations in Kabul's district 15 and in the eastern city of Jalalabad, officials said.

Fatah: US aid is a Palestinian "right," since the US is "morally responsible" for Israel's creation
Crazy Islamotards, Mars created Israel!!
Throughout 2011, Palestinian Authority leaders have mocked and minimized the significance of US aid, and even dared the US to cut off its funding of the PA.No, they don't have a "right" to our tax dollars. In fact, they should be receiving zero, zilch, nada damn thing.
Now that the US has announced a freeze of $200 million dollars, PA leaders are criticizing the US, claiming the freeze is "blackmail." Fatah added that the US and other countries owe the Palestinians financial aid on moral grounds, calling US aid to the PA an "obligation" and a "political and moral right" because the US "aided in the establishment of the State of Israel."
Earlier this year, both PM Salam Fayyad and Chairman Mahmoud Abbas criticized the US for linking its financial support to the PA's political cooperation. Fayyad called US requests "extortion" and Mahmoud Abbas said: "The US is assisting us in the amount of $460 million annually. This does not mean that they dictate to us whatever they want."

'German Taliban Mujahideen' Leader Thought Killed In U.S. Airstrike
Awesome if confirmed. More please..
The leader of a terrorist group known as the German Taliban Mujahideen is rumored to have been killed in a US airstrike in the Afghan-Pakistan border region.h/t ZIP
Gazavat Media, a jihadist propaganda website that caters to Turkish jihadists belonging to the Taifatul Mansura, or the Victorious Sect, posted that Abdul Fettah al Almani, the head of the so-called German Taliban Mujahideen, was killed in a US airstrike. The statement, which was translated by the SITE Intelligence Group, did not give the exact date or location of the strike, and was clear the report is unconfirmed.
"Gazavat Media received unconfirmed news that Abdul Fettah al Almani, the leader of the group known as the German Taliban Mujahideen, was martyred. According to the source, the factor that caused the martyrdom of Abdul Fettah Almani was a missile fired from either a helicopter or a drone."[More..]

Cyber Hezbollah: Watch Out, the Yankee Imperialists Are Watching You!
It's like Hezbollah, only cyber. Which makes it super scary and super high tech.
And while Cyber Hezbollah is scary, watch out -- the bogey man is watching you!
Abbasi warned about the close monitoring of Iranians’ web traffic by Western intelligence services, particularly the American National Security Agency (NSA). Addressing students who use the internet, he said that even though they currently do not possess important information that can be of interest to foreign intelligence services, they must exercise caution on the web, because someday they will have important and sensitive information that can be exposed by those who follow their online activity. He noted that the NSA is the organization that actually controls the world wide web....This is me shaking in my boots.
Abbasi added that the United States intends to carry out a massive September 11-like cyber attack on Iran. He warned that the United States is looking for excuses to instigate wars across the globe to rescue its declining economy. Accordingly, Cyber Hezbollah activists must act cautiously to foil the plots hatched by the enemies and not give them any pretext to take action against Iran. They must also act in the cultural sphere against American websites and spread the message of the Muslim world in cyberspace (Fars, September 23).

WaPo Wonders if AQAP's Inspire Magazine Will Continue Post Awlaki?
The last edition of Inspire magazine teased the jihadi readers with the promise of an upcoming article by Anwar al-Awlaki. Given that al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula's magazine was the brain child of Samir Khan -- who was killed along with Awlaki in last week's strike -- it's an interesting question:
Samir Khan, another American who was killed in last week’s strike, functioned as editor and publisher of Inspire. It’s not clear whether Khan had enough support staff to carry on.I'm guessing that someone will take up Samir's slack. And if I had to merit a guess, it would be that the new editor won't be physically present in Yemen.

Syrian President: 'If NATO attacks Syria, we'll fire missiles at Tel Aviv'..
Syrian President Bashar Assad warned western countries on Tuesday that if Syria comes under NATO attack it would fire missiles at Tel Aviv, Iranian semi-official news agency FARS reported.The Mad Mullahs of Iran are truly mad:
During a meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Ahmad Davutoglu Assad allegedly threatened: "If a crazy measure is taken against Damascus, I will need not more than 6 hours to transfer hundreds of rockets and missiles to the Golan Heights to fire them at Tel Aviv."
According to the report, Assad also reiterated that Damascus will call on Hezbollah to launch such an intensive rocket and missile attack on Israel.
All these events will happen in three hours, and in the following three hours, Iran will attack the US warships in the Persian Gulf and the US and European interests will be targeted simultaneously," Assad said, according to FARS.h/t @candace_irvin.
$10 Million Bounty Offered for al Qaeda in Iraq Leader

Complexion : Olive
Aliases : Dr. Ibrahim ‘Awwad Ibrahim ‘Ali al-Badri al-Samarrai’, Ibrahim ‘Awad Ibrahim al-Badri al Samarrai, Abu Duaa’, Dr. Ibrahim, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi
Abu Du’a is the senior leader of the terrorist organization, al-Qaida in Iraq (AQI). Abu Du’a is in charge of overseeing all AQI operations and is currently based in Iraq. AQI was listed by the UN 1267 Committee in 2004 under permanent reference number QE.J.115.04. Abu Du’a is responsible for managing and directing AQI large scale operations, such as the AQI August 28, 2011 attack on the Umm al-Qura mosque in Baghdad which killed prominent Sunni lawmaker Khalid al-Fahdawi.
In a statement eulogizing Usama bin Ladin, Abu Du’a threatened violent retaliation for bin Ladin’s death. Three days after bin Ladin’s death, Abu Du’a claimed responsibility for an attack in Hilla, Iraq, that killed 24 policemen and wounded 72 others. On August 15, 2011, a wave of AQI suicide attacks began in Mosul, Iraq, which culminated in over 70 deaths. Shortly thereafter, Abu Du’a pledged on AQI’s website to carry out 100 attacks across Iraq in retaliation for bin Ladin’s death.

Mogadishu: American Traitor's Terror Group Al Shabaab Kill 65 With VBIED
Eyewitnesses said a truck carrying explosives was driven into a gate near a government ministry and detonated.Wanted, more U.S. bombs dropped on al-Shabaab bast**ds please
A spokesman for the Islamist militant group al-Shabab told the BBC it had carried out the attack.
It is the largest attack since al-Shabab withdrew its forces from Mogadishu in August[...]
Among those killed were students who had been queuing at the main gate to take an exam at the education ministry in order to gain a scholarship to study in Turkey.
Ali Abdullahi, a nurse at Medina hospital in the city, said victims were being brought in with horrific wounds, including burns and lost limbs. Some had been blinded, he said.

Egypt: Gama'a al-Islamiya Proposes To Swap Alleged Israeli Spy For Omar Abdel-Rahman
Ilan Grapel 27, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen and a law student at Emory University in Atlanta, was arrested in June in Cairo on suspicion of espionage. As David Lat said at Above the Law: he's no Austin Powers. A Jew in Egypt? Why he must be a spy!!!
Cairo - An militant Egyptian Islamist group demanded Monday that the country's ruling army council trade an alleged spy being held in Egypt for the group's spiritual leader Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman being held in the US.No way would the US release that bas**rd shiekh.
Members of the al-Jamaa al-Islamiya group have held several protests in recent months in front of the US embassy in central Cairo for the release of Abdel-Rahman, who is being held in connection with the 1993 World Trade Center bombings[...]
According to the report from the London based al-Hayat newspaper, US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is set to arrive in Egypt on Tuesday and will 'take Grapel with him at the end of his visit.'

White House Refuses Darth Cheney Demand
Back story on this is Cheney was interviewed on CNN regarding Awlaki's body sploded into pieces. He wanted an apology from Obama adminstration over what Obama had stated in Germany, mainly[HuffPo]
The thing I am waiting for is for the administration to go back and correct something they said two years ago, when they criticized us for quote overreacting to the events of 9/11," Cheney said. "They in effect said we had walked away from our ideals, taking policy contrary to our ideals when we had enhanced interrogation techniques. They have clearly moved in the direction of taking robust action when they feel it is justified. In this case, it was. They need to go back and reconsider what the president said in Cairo."GITMO is still open, Obama has stepped up the drone strikes..which is good. But, leftist are criticizing due process of law over killing of Awlaki. Some HuffPo readers had forgotten that cuz any mention of the name Cheney drives them nutzo. HuffPo removed several comments from yesterday calling for the killing of Liz & Dick Cheney.
The former vice president was referencing the speech Obama delivered in Cairo in 2009, in which he said the the trauma of 9/11 caused American to "act contrary to our ideals" and announced that "I have unequivocally prohibited the use of torture by the United States" and ordered Guantanamo Bay to be closed.
WASHINGTON — The White House Monday rejected a call for an apology by ex-vice president Dick Cheney, who said a US strike against a top Al-Qaeda suspect in Yemen vindicated harsh Bush-era anti-terror policies.BTW, HuffPo is pushing Awlaki was evil cuz of Booosh!!
Cheney had argued that the US drone attack last week that killed US-born cleric Anwar al-Awlaqi equated to tough treatment meted out by the previous administration to Al-Qaeda suspects, including enhanced interrogations.
But White House spokesman Jay Carney said that the Obama administration's record on chasing down terror suspects showed that America could make itself safe without compromising its ideals.
"If specifically, he's saying that an apology is called for because of measures that were taken that this president absolutely does not believe is the right way to go, he's not going to apologize," Carney said.
Video: British Guy Calls al Qaeda Leader "Martyr", Prays for Awlaki and bin Laden
A British Muslim laments the "martyrdom" of the "shiekh" Anwar al-Awlaki, a leader of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula. Oh, and then he prays that God will give Osama bin Laden the highest level in jannah (heaven).
You can wrap your treason and support for terrorism in religious terms, but it's still treason & support for terrorism.
He claims the ideology we are fighting is Islam. Which an odd statement given that the vast majority of those killed by al Qaeda are Muslims, and the vast majority of those fighting al Qaeda are also Muslims.

Barack "The Uniter" Obama Marched With Black Panthers
New photographs obtained exclusively by BigGovernment.com reveal that Barack Obama appeared and marched with members of the New Black Panther Party as he campaigned for president in Selma, Alabama in March 2007.
The photographs, captured from a Flickr photo-sharing account before it was scrubbed, are the latest evidence of the mainstream media’s failure to examine Obama’s extremist ties and radical roots.
In addition, the new images raise questions about the possible motives of the Obama administration in its infamous decision to drop the prosecution of the Panthers for voter intimidation.

Jawa Exclusive: The Early Writing of Samir Khan
While you may have heard about Samir Khan's Ignored Puzzle Pieces of Knowledge blog that made him famous. There is another blog, an even earlier blog that dates back as far as 2004.
MANKIND IS UNDER THE FALSE IMPRESSION THAT SECULAR MEANS WILL BRING ABOUT PEACE IN THE WORLD WHILE TOTALLY NEGLECTING THE TRUE SPIRITUALITY WHICH CAN ONLY BE BROUGHT ABOUT BY A PEOPLE WHO WILL WORK TO RE-ESTABLISH THE COMPLETE REVOLUTION BROUGHT ABOUT BY PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PEACE BE UPON HIM)!
What's important about this blog is is speaks to Samir's early influences which some have characterized as "moderate". But from the very earliest writing Samir had a taste for radical clerics and what one might call very fundamental Islam.
This is all recorded at one of Samir's early blogspot blogs titled Human Liberation - an Islamic Renaissance. This is the blog were we first noticed that Inshallahshaheed was indeed Samir Khan.
So who were Samir's early heros? The image above is of a Pakistani cleric who founded the Islamic group Tanzeem-e-Islami, Dr. Israr Ahmad, who once said...
The process of the revival of Islam in different parts of the world is real. A final showdown between the Muslim world and the non-Muslim world, which has been captured by the Jews, would soon take place. The Gulf War was just a rehearsal for the coming conflict...Global Calliphate, check. Final Holy War, check. Hates da Joooos, check.
Those are some moderate Islamic statements right there, I checked and yup that's moderate.
In a world in which one cannot afford to call Israel a racist state, where one cannot survive without recognizing its “legitimacy;, where anyone calling for Israel’s destruction is branded as a terrorist who deserves to be thrown into the concentration camp at Guantanamo Bay, presenting an undeniable thesis of its destruction needs a lot of courage.He was also a big fan of Sayyid Qutb, who the liberal outlet NPR describes as the basis of al-Qaeda's ideology.
Like I said, a moderate. In fact Khan's writing was so radical in the context of the times that we at Jawa Report were immediately alarmed. His cold, calculated and quite logical explanations were moral justification and advocacy for genocide and holocaust despite the "moderate" feel of the language he chose to express it.
Like I said, "moderate Islam".
Yemen Air Force bombs US backed troops fighting al Qaeda again
For the second time the Sanaa regime has "accidentally" bombed the troops fighting al Qaeda. The last time, in early August dozens of the tribal fighters against al Qaeda were killed as well as four military commanders. The tribesmen later said that al Qaeda fighters were lying in wait after the bombing, as if it was coordinated with them. And this time, the al Qaeda fighters were laying in wait again. The Air Force is led by Yemen the half-brother of President Saleh, Mohammed Saleh Ahmar.
USA Today: The officials said the bombing, which took place on Saturday evening in the southern Abyan province, targeted an abandoned school used as shelter by soldiers of the army's 119th Brigade. The school is located just east of Abyan's provincial capital Zinjibar, where militants linked to al-Qaeda have been in control since May.... there were unconfirmed reports that militants arrived at the school soon after the airstrike and killed an unspecified number of wounded troops.
The school is in the Bagdar area, along the frontline between Yemeni forces and militants. On Saturday, fighting in Zinjibar killed at least 28 soldiers and militants.
The 119th Brigade has rebelled against the regime of President Ali Abdullah Saleh to join the protest movement demanding his ouster. It is thought to have received significant support from the U.S. military to enable it to fight the militants in the south more efficiently.
Yemen Related Update: Yemen officials report that bomb maker Ibrahim al Asiri was not killed in the air strike that got Anwar and Sami.

Gravy! al-Qaeda's Top Bombmaker Killed in Airstrike (Bumped and With More Cowbell)
Yeah the same air strike that killed al-Awlaki and Samir "Inshallahshaheed" Khan....
Two US officials say the drone strike in Yemen that killed Anward al-Awlaki appears to have also killed al-Qaida’s top Saudi bomb-maker.Which means that this was probably the al-Qaeda cell that created the printer cartridge bombs. If Samir was with them, then one can assume he assisted in an attempt to bomb the United States and murder airline passengers. Which makes claims of it being unfair to waste he and al-Awaki even more laughable.
Update by Jane: Excellent news indeed. Al Asiri was the bomb maker for the Nigerian's PETN underwear bomb, the toner cartridges on the UPS plane and the PETN bomb used to target Saudi Prince Naif. The group had been working on acquiring/creating a WMD type of weapon and had been focused on riacin. Untold lives were saved here. And the strike was executed flawlessly in that there were no civilian casualties.
There's much less grumbling about the strike in Yemen than there is in the US. Actually many Yemenis are happy to be free of the burden of Anwar and all are cursing AQAP because of the atrocities the fanatics are committing in Abyan, including executing a suspected witch and another man after a dispute ( link to vid here) and cutting off a teen's arm for stealing. The boy later died. Over 100,000 fled al Qaeda when they took control of, and looted, the provincial capital Zinjibar and the families are living in schools in Aden since May.
Yesterday's anti-government protests by millions around Yemen was themed in unity with and support of the Syrian people's struggle against Assad. A secondary theme was in rejection of the fatwa, requested by President Saleh and delivered by 500 state clerics, that finds public demonstrations against the state and for regime change are illegitimate under Islam. I am quite concerned by the fatwa; through the years, Saleh fatwa'd his opposition before attacking them. Nonetheless I am trying to convince the Yemeni protesters to adopt AC/DC's Highway to Hell as a theme song.
Update: There has been some confusion that the location of Awlaki's death (al Jawf en route to Marib) means he wasn't involved in the AQAP occupation of Zinjibar; however, earlier reports indicated the terrorists brought items looted from Abyan residents to Marib to be divided up there.
Update by Howie: I got a fevah!!!
Do fear the Reaper. Very much.
Update: Now some are saying that the other two bags of leftovers did not include this guy, I dunno. I've seen reports of as many of six bags of leftovers..
I'll deal with it on Monday, why do they always want to ruin my weekend like that?
UPDATE by SH: According to FNC, a Yemeni official stated he wasn't sploded. Time will tell.

Iranian Strangles/Drowns UK Woman For, Get This..:
Refusing To Marry Him So He Could Stay In UK
A failed asylum seeker strangled and drowned a bakery worker who refused to marry him so he could stay in the UK.At least UK didn't need to worry about a hung jury. He took care of that..
Iranian-born Hossein Abdollahzadeh, 32, left Agnieszka Dziegielewska's naked body in a bath full of water at her flat in Swinton, near Rotherham, just weeks after she kicked him out.
He later hanged himself in his prison cell while on remand charged with Dziegielewska's murder, the inquest in Rotherham heard.
Agnieszka moved to the UK from Bialystok, Poland, in 2004 - the year the country became a full member of the EU - and met Abdollahzadeh four years later at his takeaway pizza shop in Swinton.
Marrying Agnieszka, an EU citizen, would have enabled the Iranian to continue living in the UK.
It emerged at the hearing that Abdollahzadeh treated his partner of two years 'like a servant', regularly slapping and beating her which left her covered in bruises. He also refused to believe their relationship was over when she left him to escape the violence.[More..]

Afghans rock at first music festival in 3 decades
KABUL - Live rock returned to Afghanistan after three long decades on Saturday as young men and women cheered and leapt into the air to the sound of heavy bass beats and punk rock.Indeed, "a refreshing change"..
Bands from Australia, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan and Afghanistan served up a six-hour musical feast of blues, indie, electronica and death metal to hundreds of fans, many of whom had never seen live music before.
Sound Central was something new in a deeply conservative Muslim country where music was banned under the austere Taliban regime. Even now music shops are attacked in some cities and musicians taunted for their clothes or hair.
The festival retained a distinctly Afghan accent, with alcohol banned, kebabs the only snacks and a respect for strong religious values amid the rock and roll[...]
Where I live, there's nothing like this. I heard about it so I had to come," said Ahmad Shah, dressed in a traditional white shalwar kameez and waistcoat, who traveled from Kandahar, a southern city roiled by insurgent violence.
"I came to escape the cancer of the Taliban and this makes a refreshing change."
Pakistani Man Gets Death Sentence in Governor's Murder
Good, hope their life insurance is up to date. The murderer, Mumtaz Qadri, has become the darling of some Pakistanis.

A judge announced the verdict Saturday at an anti-terrorism court in a prison in the city of Rawalpindi.
Officer Mumtaz Qadri had confessed to killing Punjab Province Governor Salman Taseer earlier this year because of the governor's opposition to Pakistan's blasphemy law. The law mandates the death sentence for those who insult Islam. Qadri was a member of the governor's security team.

In fact, in March, Abbas stated he was willing to give up all U.S. aid to reconcile with Hamas

Afghanistan Haqqani militant Haji Mali Khan captured(Uncle of the Haqqani network's leader Siraj
Uncle will know where nephew is......they have had him since Tuesday.
A senior leader of the militant Haqqani network, Haji Mali Khan, has been captured in Afghanistan, the Nato-led international force Isaf has said.
He was detained during an operation by Afghan and coalition forces in Paktia province on Tuesday, Isaf said.
He was heavily armed but did not resist, it added.
Haji Mali Khan is the senior commander in Afghanistan for the Haqqani network, blamed for some recent Afghan attacks and accused of links to Pakistan.
He is also a revered elder of the clan, the uncle of the network's leader, Siraj Haqqani, and served as an emissary between the Haqqanis and Baitullah Mehsud, the former head of the Pakistani Taliban who was killed in a suspected US missile attack in 2009
