Happy New Year!
Probably the best video ever made....
Well what did you expect from a flannel wearing, back woods, mid-western, Bible loving, gun clinging hayseed like me?
But hey at least I don't live in Iowa or God forbid Nebraska.
Update: No wait! Changed my mind this has to be the best video ever made.
Update: I really hate commas. As Rusty says, "Howie at least you're king of the errant, missing and random commas."

Will The EFF or Director Jillian C. York Condemn Silverstein Now?
Update: Blackfive's Laughing_Wolf contacted the EFF and got a very odd response. Read about it here.
Aussie Dave is no longer an anonymous blogger. Dick Silverstein finally achieved his desperate goal. It must be the highlight of his immature, pathetic blogging career.
While having Aussie Dave's identity and location exposed is most certainly a serious issue - especially to Dave and his family - I can't help wondering about an even larger issue that affects everyone who blogs under pseudonyms. A director for the Electronic Frontier Foundation, which is an organization claiming to be dedicated to protecting and defending the rights of bloggers who want to remain anonymous, stood idly by while Silverstein went on his obsessive witch hunt. Even more disturbing is that Jillian C. York seemed to encourage Silverstein. She commented, "Oh good" when assured that Aussie Dave's real name had been leaked. Jillian posted this about that comment:
A blogger, who has been blogging anonymously for nearly ten years, does not make the rookie mistakes of a) putting his address on Facebook and b) linking his real life Facebook page to his anonymous blog. I pointed this out to Silverstein (in fewer words), who claimed that the information was trustworthy and had been emailed to him, and that the blogger had inadvertently connected his blog to his Facebook page. To the latter, I commented, “Oh good” and left it at that.
What Jillian did not do was discourage Silverstein. She took the time to question the validity of the initial information. She commented on both Silverstein's blog and Facebook page. She took the time to tweet about Aussie Dave, calling him an "asshole." She even took the time to stop by Aussie Dave's IsraellyCool blog and bleat that a blogger who inadvertently ("idiotically" she called it) outs himself is "fair game."
What she didn't do was help defend a blogger who made it clear he wanted to remain anonymous. She didn't take any time to ask Silverstein to reconsider his quest to expose an anonymous blogger, even though she made comments at both blogs. In fact, I haven't seen even one word of condemnation from Jillian toward what Silverstein did. She didn't uphold the principles of the EFF.
Instead, she is still making excuses and placing the blame squarely on Dave.
Completely giving Jillian C. York the benefit of doubt about her "oh good" comment, I still have to question her integrity when she made it so abundantly clear during the fracas she doesn't like Aussie Dave or, judging from her support of Palestine, his pro-Israel stance. But we have yet to hear how she feels about Silverstein, who instigated the whole mess, and who also happens to be very pro-Palestinian.
But she assures us it had nothing to do with politics.

Twitter Hosts Many Specially Designated Terrorist Entities
You've heard Twitter's excuse about hosting the Taliban's feed, but but but they are not an FTO (which they are) but what about these FTO's here.
MEMRI.org.: The MEMRI Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor tracks the multiple ways in which jihadi groups are using social media such as Facebook, YouTube, and now Twitter – including "tweeting" news flashes, reporting attacks, battles, and other operational activities, sharing videos, inciting to Jihad and more. See:Hmmmm? How about them apples?
"Twitter Continues To Evade Explaining Its Breaking of U.S. Law and Its Indirect Support For Online Jihad: The Case of Hizbullah and Al-Manar TV," MEMRIInquiry and Analysis No. 777, December 22, 2011, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/5942.htmThis research also details Twitter's declared policy relating to U.S.-designated foreign terrorist organizations that use its service – a use that violates U.S. law and indirectly supports online jihad.
"Somali Al-Qaeda Affiliated Al-Shabaab Tweets Jihad and Martyrdom," MEMRI Inquiry and Analysis No. 772, December 13, 2011, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/5912.htm

The latest terrorist organization to begin tweeting, joining Hizbullah, the Somali Al-Qaeda linked group Al-Shabaab, the Taliban, and many others on which MEMRI will be reporting soon, is Hamas. (For more on Hamas, see "The Covenant of the Islamic Resistance Movement - Hamas," MEMRI Special Dispatch No. 3867, http://www.memri.org/report/en/0/0/0/0/0/0/5319.htm .)
It should be noted that other Palestinian groups designated by the U.S. as foreign terrorist organizations use Twitter as well, including the PFLP (http://twitter.com/PFLPgaza), which was designated an FTO in 1997 (see Appendix III).
The following report examines how the Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas and its multiple apparatuses, ranging from its official information ministry, its military wing, its TV and radio channels, and its spokesman all use Twitter.
Israel Offs Another Terrorist
(JERUSALEM) — The Israeli army says it has carried out an airstrike against a group of Palestinian militants preparing to launch rockets at Israel from the Gaza Strip.Darn I don't have actual war porn of this strike but it probably looked something like this.
The territory's Health Ministry says one man was killed and one wounded in the strike early on Friday.
The army says the airstrike thwarted an attempt by a group that had recently fired rockets at Israel.
Update: The dead buy is identified as Momen Abu Daf
...Chief of the Army of Islam, among a loose network of Palestinian groups which profess allegiance to al Qaeda and have been reinforced by volunteers who slip in from the Sinai.
Update II: Look a dead Jihadi!
The Drone That Wasn't
CNN has reported on the case of a young girl, Shakira, who was horrifically burned in Pakistan in 2009, supposedly in a US drone strike.Bill's logic is spot on. But the tradition of using maimed children and less than true stories of American baby killing is part and parcel of terrorist incitement propaganda. To every incident there are always two narratives, one of the brave Mujahideen, the other of poor Muslims and innocent children killed intentionally by crusaders and puppets.
...There is a major problem this story: there has never been a report of a US Predator or Reaper airstrike in Swat. Ever. In fact, only four of the 53 drone strikes reported in Pakistan in 2009 took place outside of North and South Waziristan. Of those four strikes, two were in Kurram, one was in Bannu, and one was in Arakzai.
What is more likely is that Shakira was horrifically disfigured by her own nation's military, and not by US drones.
Not so much because dead children bother the Taliban or al-Qaeda much, no they'd strap a bomb on Little Orphan Muhammad in a heartbeat if they thought they'd get to see blood. No this propaganda is dedicated to promote the soft western leftists idea of the Evil American Empire.

EFF Director: "When A Blogger Makes A Mistake, He Becomes Fair Game."
Instead of using their true names to communicate these people choose to speak using pseudonyms (assumed names) or anonymously (no name at all). For these individuals and the organizations that support them secure anonymity is critical. It may literally save lives. [...]
The Electronic Frontier Foundation has been involved in the fight to protect the rights of anonymous speakers online.
Jillian C York, EFF's Director for International Freedom of Expression, seemingly doesn't agree. She got mixed up in the Aussie Dave/Richard Silverstein fray when she questioned the accuracy of supposed personal information about Aussie Dave, which Richard Silverstein admitted was probably posted in "error" and was happily showing off on his blog. When Silverstein assured her it was genuine, her simple, unambiguous reply was, "Oh good." (You can view screen shots of the exchange HERE.)
After some outcry, how did the Director for International Freedom of Expression respond to justify her apparent support of Aussie Dave's name and address being exposed in direct conflict with EFF's principles? With this tweet:
Keep in mind, at the time she posted that tweet, Silverstein still assumed it was an innocent mistake on Aussie Dave's part that the information was exposed in the first place. York, in her capacity as a Director for an organization dedicated to protecting anonymous bloggers, in as much stated he deserved to be outed because she thinks he's an "asshole."
Maybe Dave is an asshole. I don't know him, so I couldn't say. I don't think he is. But I do know he - and every other legitimate anonymous blogger - doesn't deserve to have his personal info exposed over an error. The more decent and honorable thing to do - what Silverstein should have done - was to ignore Dave's mistake, or even make a quick comment to point out the error so it could be corrected. But Silverstein has shown himself to be neither decent nor honorable.
When it became clear Silverstein chose to maliciously exploit Dave's "error," York, as a director for EFF, should have made some effort to discourage him. She should have, as a defender of free speech for anonymous writers, appealed to his common decency. Instead, she wrote, in response to Silverstein's assurances that the name and address were real, "Oh good."
You'd think after some thought Jillian York would understand that. But no. Even after sitting idly by while Silverstein potentially endangered a fellow blogger, even after tweeting her personal feelings about Aussie Dave, Jillian visited Aussie Dave's blog post and wrote in comments:
"I very much support anonymity for everyone, but when a blogger idiotically outs himself, he becomes fair game."
To err is human. Mistakes happen. And according to one Director of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, mistakes are "idiotic" and that makes you fair game.
Doucheblogger Richard Silverstein PWND! (Updated & Bumped)
UPDATE: Richard Silverstein has finally admitted he was duped:
Yesterday, I reported in a post that I believed I had exposed the real identity of Aussie Dave, author of the Israellycool blog. It appears that he invented a fake identity in order to perpetrate a hoax on me. It boggles the mind that he went to the immense amount of trouble he did to perpetrate this hoax. It tells you how much free time he has on his hands to engage in all the subterfuge that was necessary to fool me. It tells you precious little about me, but quite a lot about him.
Notice Dick isn't the least bit apologetic for exposing what he thought was the identity of a Pro-Israel, anti-Jihad blogger, which could have put Aussie Dave in very real danger. Instead, Dick appears almost disappointed and resentful he failed in exposing Aussie Dave's real name and actual home address.
Dave thinks he’s a genius because I [sic] fooled me. What he doesn’t realize is that in his blog post, he proudly admits that he created a hoax Facebook account for a non-existent person using the photo of a real person, a clear violation of Facebook rules.
OMG, Dave! Now you're in trouble! He's reporting you to Facebook! You thought the threats from Jihadists were bad, wait until Mark Zuckerberg finds you!
You are filth, Dick. The fact you would deliberately put another blogger in danger over petty cyber-bickering says a whole precious lot about you. Not to mention your credibility.
Shame on you.
And shame on Jillian York of EFF for not making even the slightest effort to protect a vulnerable blogger. Did you, Jillian, say "Don't post his private information, Richard"? Did you say, "Maybe it was a mistake, don't make it worse"? No. You said, "Oh good."
-----original post moved below the fold-----
Pro-Palestinian, anti-Israeli blogger Richard Silverstein is breaking his arms patting himself on the back for exposing the "real" name and address of a pro-Israel blogger, Aussie Dave. Dave set up a fake Facebook page and then "accidentally" linked it to one of his posts:
For years, I have been posting about his hatred for Israel and nastiness, which makes a mockery of his blog’s name Tikkun Olam (“Repairing/Healing the World”). Recently, he was cited by the mainstream media, due to his posts blaming Israel and the Mossad for explosions in Iran and Lebanon, as well as for leaking online some FBI surveillance transcripts of conversations caught on F.B.I. wiretaps of the Israeli Embassy in Washington. Although I have demonstrated on numerous occasions the inaccuracies in his posts, I knew I had to step things up a notch to really show how unreliable and careless with the facts he is.
So I set a trap. I asked a friend of the blog to approach Silverstein with “proof” of my real identity, knowing how much he wanted to reveal it to the world. In order to make it believable, I inserted an “easter egg” into this Silverstein-related post.
Silverstein took the bait and gleefully posted the fake personal contact information, despite the fact that such exposure would put any pro-Israel, anti-Jihad blogger in real danger.
Not cool, Dick.
Read more about it here. Be sure to read the updates, as it gets even more disturbing. Jillian York, the Director of International Freedom of Expression at the Electronic Frontier Foundation - an organization I supported until now, is apparently happy Silverstein is endangering a blogger.
Screen shot below the fold in case, after he takes a break from patting himself on the back, Silverstein realizes he's been duped and tries to flush the post down the internet memory hole.
Bobby Mugabe TV Ad Prompts Outrage
(Harare, Zimbabwe) A South African restaurant chain, Nando's, produced a television commercial showing Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe as the Last Dictator Standing.
The arguably hilarious ad prompted outrage among Mugabe's supporters in Zimbabwe.
The commercial for its six-piece chicken combo depicts Mr. Mugabe reminiscing about his times with departed dictators to the song Those Were the Days.Fearing violence against its staff at restaurants in Zimbabwe, Nando's pulled the ad.
He is shown having a water-gun fight with Muammar Gaddafi, making sand angels with Saddam Hussein and riding in a tank with Idi Amin, before awakening from his dream to find himself at a dinner table, alone at Christmas….
Gold Star parents urge Obama to do the right thing
As pressure builds on the Obama administration to deny a diplomatic visa to ousted Yemeni president, Ali Abdullah Saleh, the family of a sailor killed in the al Qaeda attack on the USS Cole urged that Saleh be denied entry to the United States.
In a public plea, Gary and Deborah Swenchonis are calling on US officials to “do the right thing” in light of Saleh’s “ruthless behavior” toward both his own people and the sailors aboard the USS Cole when it was attacked.
“If Saleh was allowed to come here to America, it would be just another insult in a long line of insults to the murdered sailors, those wounded, and those sailors who fought so hard and so long to keep the Cole afloat, and to bring her back home. And not to mention all the other Americans who could never understand why our own government continued to befriend Saleh in light of how he helped the plotters of the Cole Attack in which 17 American sailors were murdered, and 39 more wounded.”
Their son Gary Swenchonis Jr. was a fireman aboard the USS Cole and among those US service members killed in October 2000 when al Qaeda operatives detonated a bomb alongside the warship as it was refueling in the Port of Aden.
The Swenchonis family notes that through several administrations, the US government has never held Saleh to account for his part in obstructing the USS Cole investigation, allowing the terrorists to repeatedly escape justice or in facilitating the attack itself.
Like other aggrieved parties including torture victims, the Swenchonis family vowed to use “every legal option at our disposal to make him stand trial in a civil court” should Saleh find refuge in the United States.

al-Shabaab Defends Pure Islam in Somalia
MOGADISHU, Somalia — The girl’s voice dropped to a hush as she remembered the bright, sunny afternoon when she stepped out of her hut and saw her best friend buried in the sand, up to her neck.
Her friend had made the mistake of refusing to marry a Shabab commander. Now she was about to get her head bashed in, rock by rock.
“You’re next,” the Shabab warned the girl, a frail 17-year-old who was living with her brother in a squalid refugee camp.
Several months later, the men came back. Five militants burst into her hut, pinned her down and gang-raped her, she said. They claimed to be on a jihad, or holy war, and any resistance was considered a crime against Islam, punishable by death.
The Shabab militant group, which presents itself as a morally righteous rebel force and the defender of pure Islam, is seizing women and girls as spoils of war, gang-raping and abusing them as part of its reign of terror in southern Somalia
Israel Eliminates Three al-Qaeda Linked Terrorists in Gaza
The Israeli Defense Forces killed three al Qaeda-linked terrorists during two airstrikes in the Gaza strip over the past 24 hours.
Today, the IDF killed Rami Daoud Jabar Khafarna and Hazam Mahmad Sa’adi Al Shakr, both described as “Global Jihad-affiliated” terrorists, during an airstrike in the northern Gaza Strip, the IDF said in a press release on its website. The IDF uses the term “Global Jihad-affiliated terrorist” to describe members of Salafist groups linked to al Qaeda’s network in the region.
Both Khafarna and Shakr were previously members of Hamas prior to joining the unnamed Salafist group. Khararna “is known to have taken part in firing rockets at Israel,” while Shakr “has planted and detonated explosive devices against IDF soldiers, along the border with the Gaza Strip.”.”
Today’s airstrike followed another yesterday that killed Abdallah Telbani in Gaza city. Telbani was also described as a “Global Jihad-affiliated terrorist,” and was involved in a plot to attack Israel from the Egyptian Sinai as well as rocket and IED attacks along the Israeli-Gaza border, according to Reuters.
The Super Sekrit Zionist Pencil Plot
Saudi authorities investigating how Kravitz pencils with Hebrew logo showed up in kingdom.We would have gotten away with it too if it hadn't been for those meddling kids.
The pencils are sold with the Kravitz logo in Hebrew and without any attempt to conceal the fact that they are made in Israel.
“I really don’t understand it, because they leave the factory with that price,” says Kravitz Co. CEO Menashe Zilka. “We haven’t had any break-ins and I checked with our distributors. No one has heard anything, no one knows anything.”
Soon we will hatch another plot to teach Arabs to write on their own. And this time we will not fail.
Santa Massacre Honor Killing
Tragic and sad Christmas in Texas, I've been confused, apparently some members of the Iranian family are Christian or at least celebrate Christmas. That coupled with reports of separations and a bankruptcy made me cautious.
But looking today its coming out that the father who murdered 6 and then killed himself was Muslim. Also he is reported to have been particularly insistent that his daughters dated only Muslims.
Bare Naked Islam: Citing public records and interviews with friends and neighbors, media reports identified Aziz Yazdanpanah and others who had died: his estranged 55-year-old wife, Fatemeh Rahmati, their 19-year-old daughter, Nona Narges Yazdanpanah, and 15-year-old son, Ali Yazdanpanah. Friends of the family said Fatemeh Rahmati’s 58-year-old sister, Zohreh Rahmaty, and her husband, Hossein Zarei, 59, and daughter Sahra Zarei, a 22-year-old pre-med student at the University of Texas at Arlington, also were killed.Tragic....
Aziz Yazdanpanah seemed to be losing control of his life in recent months — his wife left him, his house was in foreclosure, and his 19-year-old daughter was dating a young man he didn’t like.
Yazdanpanah, a volunteer high school debate coach described as a doting father, is the focus of suspicion a day after a Christmas morning massacre in which a man dressed as Santa Claus killed six relatives and then committed suicide.
Neighbors said the family was Muslim but had always hung Christmas lights on their home — except this year. . . .
But a more ominous portrait emerged of Yazdanpanah in interviews with some of his daughter’s other classmates.
“She would come to school crying and telling us her dad was crazy,” said Lacie Reed, 18. “He wouldn’t let her wear certain things. He was always taking her phone away, checking her call history and checking her text messages.”
...“She couldn’t date at all until she was a certain age, but when he was going to let her date she couldn’t date anyone outside of their race or religion,” Reed said. “He would take her phone away and her mother would give it back to her and her brother would let her use his phone,” Alvarenga said. “She was doing good. She was just excited that her life was going to start and she was going to have control of it.” . . .
Twitter Refuses to Remove Taliban
Senators want to stop feeds which boast of insurgent attacks on Nato forces in Afghanistan and the casualties they inflict.However Twitter is reported to be rejecting the move after pointing out that unlike al-Qaeda, the Taliban movement is not registered by the State Department as a foreign terrorist organisation.Despite the fact that we are in an active shooting war with the Taliban and that Twitter is lending aid and comfort to the enemy. That alone should be enough. But if Twitter needs me to explain to them...
Aides for Joe Lieberman, chair of the Senate Homeland Security Committee, said the move was part of a wider attempt to eliminate violent Islamist extremist propaganda from the internet and social media.
The Taliban movement has embraced the social network as part of its propaganda effort and regularly tweets about attacks or posts links to its statements.
The information has ranged from highly accurate, up-to-the-minute accounts of unfolding spectacular attacks, to often completely fabricated or wildly exaggerated reports of American and British casualties.Then we find this little tidbit....
Indeed the Taliban are considered a foreign terrorist organization.
Taliban were declared specially designated terrorist entity by President Bush under executive order 13224, see here via Department of Treasury Office of Foreign Asset Control.And more...
The Executive order recognizes the designation of the Taliban as terrorists by the UN resolution 1267 and directs the Dept of Treasury and State to treat them as such.
You can find more security council resolutions about the Taliban here on that mysterious thingy called Google.
Providing business services, even free ones, to the Taliban violates the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) in the US. Each IEEPA violation of carries a fine of up to $250,000.UN resolution 1267 says that anyone providing for al-Qaeda or supporting al-Qaeda is also subject to sanction. IE the Taliban. The US is required top enforce UN sanctions by treaty weather or not our Dept of State says anything about it.
Providing business services to the Taliban also violates the Charter of the United Nations (Anti-terrorism — Persons and Entities) List, under United Nations Security Council Resolution 1373 of which Canada & the US have recognized as a legally binding resolution.
It also violates UN Security Council adopted Resolution 1267, of which Canada & the US recognize as binding law. "Asset holders are under an obligation to freeze the assets or economic resources of persons involved in terrorism as listed in the Consolidated List", of which the Taliban are listed.
But considering that Obama loves the idea of a Taliban embassy in Qatar. Well I think twitter is basing their stand on the fact that this President is unlikely to enforce any ban.
But still Titter are dicks for giving the Taliban a platform to spew their Islamic supremacist propaganda and ideology. I threw the word supremacist in there because if it were any other brand of supremacist then you know..
Science! Islamic Terrorists Target Jews
Why this is almost as shocking and unexpected as the Death of Jameela Messenger of Allah.
Nearly half of the terror plots aimed at the city since 1992 have targeted Jewish people or institutions, prompting police to ramp up security around such facilities during the holiday season, according to an NYPD intelligence analysis.Amazing!..... they did do a very good job at being sure they did not include the word Islam in the article. Me I'm working on a grant to study ways to exclude the word Islam from Islam. My backup plan is another study to determine why the Nazis got pegged with that whole hates da joos stereotype as well.
Friday, police Commissioner Ray Kelly said there was no specific threat against the city around the Christmas holiday season but that officers were remaining on alert as has become the usual practice.
The intelligence division study showed that in addition to Jews being targeted in eight of 18 plots in the city since 1992, there have been 44 suspected terrorists who have lived in the five boroughs. Aside from Samir Khan, editor of the al-Qaida-linked Inspire who was killed in September in a drone attack in Yemen, all the other suspects have been arrested in prior cases. The NYPD intelligence findings was first reported Thursday by Reuters.
Thousands Of Muslims Protest Against Islamists
Actually, it was thousands of Israelis protesting ultra-Orthodox Extremist Jews:
THOUSANDS of Israelis gathered last night to protest against ultra-Orthodox extremists whose campaign for gender segregation has erupted into verbal and physical abuse against women.
Police said about 3000 people showed up in the town of Beit Shemesh, with "several hundred" police supervising.
There were no clashes between participants and ultra-Orthodox residents who have recently been filmed spitting at a woman and verbally harassing an eight-year-old girl.
Extremism in any society should be exposed and protested. So, its good to see Israeli citizens taking a stand against these intolerant bigots. If only every faith would distance themselves and shame the radicals among them.
A Taliban tries playing hide-n-seek with Apaches. Unfortunately for him, Apaches are really good at that game.

Art Prize Pulled Due to Palestinian Entry
(Lausanne, Switzerland) The luxury clothing brand company, Lacoste, has pulled its sponsorship of an art competition because a Palestinian artist, Larissa Sansour, submitted a photo series deemed "too pro-Palestinian."
The Elysee Museum in Lausanne, Switzerland, had offered €25,000 to the winner of the Lacoste Elysee Prize for a work with the theme of "joie de vivre".Although Sansour wasn't awarded the prize due to controversy, she has received significant public exposure for herself and her art work which is arguably just as valuable.
A jury was set to award the cash to one of eight candidates in January but the museum said this year's award had been suspended.
"The private partner's wish to exclude Larissa Sansour, one of the competition candidates, is behind the Elysee Museum's decision," the museum said in a statement.[…]
The artist said she was told by the museum last week that her nomination had been revoked by Lacoste who thought her project, although not directly anti-Israel, was "too pro-Palestinian" for the company to support.

"And Clean Up The Blood, Bi@tch!"
(Hat Tip: Blanco)
An NC shop clerk took on an armed robber and knock him out cold with one punch. But to add insult to injury, the clerk put the would-be robber to work (all emphasis mine):
The man eventually regained consciousness.
“He kind of begged me, begged me to let him go,” Mothershead said. “I said, 'You came in and tried to rob us. You’re going to jail.'”
While they waited for police and paramedics, Mothershead gave the man a roll of power towels, sprayed the floor with cleaner and told him to clean up his own blood.
Death Penalty For "Planning To Imply"
Never mind if the implication is truthful.
Sharia law is a proactive form of punishment. The cruel sentences and executions are not so much meant as a punishment, but more of deterrent for others. The problem with such a system is that the defendant's guilty or innocence is secondary to sending a harsh message to those who might be inclined to commit similar crimes.
'Crimes,' of course, being anything that is detrimental to Islam and it's subjugation of the Islamic population.
Iran setting new precedent for it's brutal and inhuman system of justice (emphasis mine):
In a closed court hearing, the prosecution applied for capital punishment, the report said, because the suspect, identified as Amir Mirzaei Hekmati, "admitted that he received training in the United States and planned to imply that Iran was involved in terrorist activities in foreign countries" after returning to the U.S. (Source)

All in the Family
From the New York Post
Sen. Charles Schumer’s brother-in-law was quietly nominated this month to a federal judgeship in New Jersey — a move that has some in the Garden State crying political foul, The Post has learned.Nothing to see here, folks, move along now.
Kevin McNulty, who is married to Schumer’s sister, Fran, was named to the US District Court by the White House late on Friday, Dec. 16. According to a boilerplate quote, President Obama believes McNulty is a “distinguished individual” who “will serve the American people with integrity and a steadfast commitment to justice.”...
...What no one mentioned is that McNulty, 57, was the last-minute choice of Lautenberg, who had been leaning toward other candidates until surprisingly submitting McNulty’s name to the White House.
Lautenberg and his aides have given no public explanation for the decision to go with McNulty even though the latter had never been publicly touted as a contender for the job, which carries life tenure and a $174,000-a-year salary.
Jameela Messenger of Allah Dead
What can I say? The only thing I can say about the death of Jameela Barnette is that everyone saw it coming, the only question was when and how.
A Muslim woman who had been charged with sending fake weapons and a pig’s foot to two New York lawmakers was killed during a struggle with a cop in Georgia on Sunday, authorities said.When? Christmas day, which is indicative of her special hate of Christians, Which she displayed here and here and here too.
How? Suicide by cop. We're glad he's OK. Seriously. Jameela had threatened everyone. Her Gmail icon is a burned bible.
You will hear it widely reported that she was a Muslim, specifically she advocated for Jihad. That's true. But what if anything does this say about Islam, Muslims or even the Jihad? Nothing really. I've known quite a few Muslim Jihadis and they would never say some of the things this woman said.
Jihad in this case was just a vehicle for bat-shit crazy double-clutch.

Merry Christmas From The Jawa Report
Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.” All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel".
(Matthew 1:18-23 ESV)

Christmas Wishes - Peace & Blood
Pope Benedict XVI called for peace and tolerance for the New Year.
Meanwhile, Islamists killed 25 Christians during Christmas mass in Nigeria. For some odd reason, Islamists simply don't have the same respect for Christmas that Christians have shown during Ramadan. And, as usual, there is absolute silence from moderate Muslim organizations.
Jihad Watch has a Christmas message for all to read. Here is an except:
And so remember this Christmas: if you are a free human being, whether or not you are Christian, those Christians who are being persecuted in Iraq, and the Philippines, and Nigeria, and Egypt, and Pakistan, and elsewhere in the Islamic world, are standing in your place. The jihadis would just as soon attack you as well, and will eventually if they get the chance. Remember that the Islamic supremacist program has you on its list. You may not be a Christian. You may not be a Jew. You may not be a Hindu. You may not wish to pay attention to the jihad at all. But the jihad is universal, and relentless. And you are on its list.

New Yemeni regime slaughters protesters, ongoing
Thousands of bare foot, bare chested Yemeni youth terrify the barbaric Sana'a regime and the international community with their bleeding feet.
The 170 mile Life March from Taiz arrived in Sanaa to be attacked by Central Security forces with live fire and tear gas.
The march is meant to underscore popular rejection of a bogus transition plan devised by the Gulf Cooperative Council (GCC) and endorsed by the US, EU and SA and mediated by the UN.
The GCC plan grants immunity to Saleh and his administration for decades of corruption and massacres against protesters that left thousands dead and wounded since February. The unity government is the regime re-branded with the inclusion of some "opposition" party leaders.
Nine wounded marchers were transported to the field hospital in Sana'a Change Square. One fatality has been confirmed by medics but as many as nine more have been reported to be killed. Security forces are preventing ambulances from reaching other wounded marchers bleeding out on the streets, NYR
From my Examiner article today: The Obama administration's insistence in retaining elements of the Saleh administration and security forces has thwarted the regime change demanded by millions and allowed al Qaeda to flourish in southern towns. Although US counter-terror efforts have had more latitude to operate since protests began, the Saleh regime and al Qaeda have long had a symbiotic relationship.
Also read at Global Voices: “These GCC states are not at all competent to deal with popular requests for liberty and freedom, not to mention democratic government, because they themselves are mostly despotic regimes,” observed Yemen’s Coordinating Council of the Youth Revolution of Change (CCYRC). “They themselves would never welcome such requests from their own people, let alone be ready to accommodate such demands by people in neighboring states.”

When Murder Goes Right
BOSTON -- A pedophile who was found bludgeoned to death in his cell at MCI-Norfolk this week was bragging that he was still sexually virile -- leading another convict to kill him, several law enforcement sources told Newscenter 5.
Robert Silva, 64, who was slated for release in early 2012 after serving 10 years for raping a child, was found dead Sunday.
Another convicted killer, Christopher Fletcher, confessed to murdering Silva, saying that he was upset that the pedophile referred to his remaining sexual prowess, the sources said.
“He told us he felt like he was doing a public service,’’ said one source.

Muslim Man Attacks Nurse For Removing Wife's Veil During Emergency
Apparently, his wife's modesty is much more important than her life. Go figure...
A Muslim man has been jailed in France for punching a nurse who tried to remove his wife's burqa during an emergency C-section.
Nassim Mimoune, 24, was earlier banned from the delivery room after calling a midwife a "rapist" when she tried to perform an intimate examination on his wife in a Marseille hospital on Monday, La Provence newspaper reported.
The pregnant woman, who had been having contractions for two days when she was admitted, begged her husband to allow the examination, but he threatened her with divorce.
Mimoune, a construction worker from Paris, was then taken away to view the childbirth from another room, but flew into a rage when he saw the nurse removing his wife's burqa.
He smashed open the locked door of the operating room and punched the woman in the face, telling her to replace his wife's Islamic veil. (Source)

Being A Slut Not Illegal
(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania) In October 2009, 43-year-old Susan Finkelstein, a self-described "buxom blonde," sought World Series tickets via an ad on Craigslist. In exchange, she was willing to perform sex acts.
An undercover officer responded to the ad and ultimately arrested Finkelstein for prostitution. She was convicted and sentenced to one year of probation. Finkelstein's lawyer appealed the case.
This week, Finkelstein's conviction was overturned by the Pennsylvania Superior Court on the basis that "it's not illegal to be a slut." According to the court, Finkelstein's behavior didn't rise to the level of prostitution. The tickets-for-sex deal was merely "private illicit sexual relations."(More….)

GOP Seeks To Destroy The Great American Pastime Of 'Pizza Night'
Pizza night - the foundation of any family - may be threatened if payroll taxes are increased. The payroll tax would add up to around $40 a month for a family earning $50,000 a year. Sadly, that means a typical family will have to get by on 4 fewer pizzas a month which would destroy the family unit because, apparently, that's the only way some families can be together.
From CNSnews.com (emphasis mine):
One day after the White House asked "working" people to "tell us what your family will give up if your (payroll) taxes increase," the stories are rolling in, including one from a person who worried about not having enough to pay the cable bill -- or continue family pizza nights.
"Our cable internet bill is $49 per month. If we lose this payroll tax cut then we will have to give up either (our) internet access or possibly our 'Friday Family Pizza' night. Either way, we will lose something that brings us together as a family," wrote "K.Z" from Frederick, Maryland.
Another concerned tax-payer said he'd be forced to choose between his life-saving insulin and pizza night. A mom lamented the tax increase would mean either providing school lunches for her twins or pizza night.
I never thought I'd live to see an America without pizza night.

The Life March in Yemen gets cookies in Dhamar
Thousands of Taizians have embarked on a 240 km (170 mile) march from Taiz to Yemen's capital Sana'a to underscore public rejection of a UN mediated transition plan. The plan devised by the Gulf Cooperation Council (and strong armed into existence by the Obama administration and Saudi Arabia) was overtly and repeatedly rejected by the vast majority in Yemen since its proposal in April.
So far Yemen has a) an appointed unity government including reshuffled, corrupt elites that excludes the pro-democracy youth, b) a presidential election scheduled in 60 days that has already been officially conceded by the opposition political parties, c) an honorary president, the long reigning corrupt tyrant Saleh, in addition to a temporary president and d) international guarantees of immunity for President Saleh and other government officials guilty of murdering and wounding thousands of Yemeni citizens since February (and before) as well as looting the government budget and resources for decades. The UN's endorsement of immunity for mass human rights violations is unprecedented.
The Life March, estimated to take five days, is growing in number as citizens are joining from every town and village along the way. The procession includes a kitchen and medical unit. Women in Dhamar baked 100,000 cookies in preparation for the marchers' arrival.
Vid update: marchers arrive in Dhamar, traditionally a Saleh stronghold. And other video of the marchers on the road to Dhamar:

Woman Charged With Material Support of Terrorism
What's funny is that someone in California knows who/where in Pakistan accepts money for terrorists yet Pakistan is clueless. Yeah right.
A California woman was indicted late Wednesday on charges of sending money to Pakistan to help fund terrorist attacks against U.S. military personnel, federal officials said.
Oytun Ayse Mihalik, 39, of La Palma was charged with three counts of giving money to someone in Pakistan who knew the funds would be used to prepare and carry out attacks against American troops, the U.S. Attorney's Office in Los Angeles said in a statement.
Mihalik, a native of Turkey, was accused of sending $2,050 in three wire transfers to a person in Pakistan over a period of three weeks in late 2010 and early 2011, the statement said.
Aisha Khan Found Safe
OVERLAND PARK, Kan. - The college student who disappeared Friday after reportedly being harassed by a drunk man, has been found safe. Police say she was never abducted.I suspect there is a "domestic issue" that Ms. Khan was attempting to work out or escape from. Lets pray she is able to resolve that and remains safe.
The search for Aisha Khan, 19, who was last seen on the University of Kansas Edwards campus Friday, involved several law enforcement agencies. On Tuesday, her parents offered a $10,000 reward for information about her whereabouts.
But now officials believe Khan - with whom they reportedly spoke on Wednesday - was never the victim of a kidnapping. Where she was for five days remains a mystery, however, as police are thus far not releasing details.
Khan left a frightened voicemail for her sister Friday, saying she'd gotten into an altercation with a man on the campus where she'd been studying when he tried to kiss her. When Khan's sister arrived to pick her up, she found her sister's bookbag and cell phone abandoned.
Family friend Aamer Trambu told the Associated Press he couldn't answer questions about how Khan was found, but said "the fact is, she's alive she's well. We believe our prayers have been answered."

Multiple Bombings in Baghdad
The minute we turn our back the Iraqis are back to their old selves.
The interior ministry told the BBC 14 blasts hit various locations, including al-Amil in the south and Halawi and Karrada closer to the centre.There has been no claim of responsibility but things that come to mind are AQ or Iran fostering mayhem. The other is the history of power struggles in Iraq. Specifically the both Saddam and Ahmed Hassan al-Bakr set the standard in Iraq for eliminating political opponents.
The bombings are the worst in months - and follow the withdrawal of US troops.
They come amid fears of rising sectarian tensions as the unity government faces internal divisions.
It was not immediately clear who was behind the attacks.
However, analysts say the level of co-ordination suggests a planning capability only available to al-Qaeda in Iraq, which is a mainly Sunni insurgent group.
The bombs exploded as many people were travelling to work during the morning rush-hour.
Four car-bombs and 10 improvised explosive devices (IEDs) were detonated, officials told the BBC.
A security spokesman in Baghdad, Maj Gen Qassim Atta, said the attacks had not been aimed at security targets.
"They targeted children's schools, day workers and the anti-corruption agency," he told AFP news agency.
Raghad Khalid, a teacher at a kindergarten in Karrada, said "the children were scared and crying".

Syrian Massacre Prompts Obama To Release Sternly Worded Statement
As government troops advanced on a village in northwestern Syria, activists say the terrified residents fled into a valley for fear of being arrested or worse. What happened next, one of the activists said, was "an organized massacre."
The troops surrounded the valley and unleashed a barrage of rockets, tank shells, bombs and gunfire in an hours-long assault, according to two human rights groups and a witness, killing more than 100 people and leaving no survivors in one of the bloodiest days of a crackdown by President Bashar Assad against a nine-month popular uprising. [...]
The Obama administration reacted to the latest reports by renewing its call for Assad to step down, saying he "does not deserve to rule Syria." (Source)

UNICEF: Santa Hates Poor People

(Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit)
While Santa is known throughout the world, he is symbolic of the Western concept of Christmas - a time for peace, giving, and kindness. But this video depicts him (and the West, by extension) as a cold, arrogant, stingy man who scoffs at the thought of giving life-saving medications and vaccines instead of toys.
UNICEF and the producers of this video ignore the fact that Western nations, lead by America, are the most charitable:
The United States is the world's most generous country, according to the Charities Aid Foundation's World Giving Index 2011.
Countries were ranked by the UK organization in terms of both monetary donations and charitable acts of citizens, using Gallup polling information.
Oil-rich Islamic countries, which incidentally don't use "Santa" symbolically, give the least.
UNICEF attacks a symbol Western charity and hopes it results in more donations? Not from me, it won't.

Super Sekrit Footage of Zionist Agents at Iranian Refinery
As you may have heard there was an oopsy at one of Iran's oil refineries. This is especially bad for Iran because it burns more fuel than it can refine already.
A malfunction at an Isfahan refinery caused a leakage of cooling water from its generators - the latest in a string of mysterious mishaps in Iran in the past few months. A power outage was created as a result and a state of emergency was declared at the refinery, the Iranian Mehr news agency reported.The Jawa Report has obtained cell phone video footage of a super sekrit Zionist operative in action during the alleged accident.
According to the report, one person was injured and taken to hospital. Various eye-witnesses reported seeing flames and thick smoke covering the area. The report stated that workers burned off the excess oil and gas in pipes to prevent a blast in the site. Traffic to the site was blocked and all phone lines were disconnected to prevent an explosion.

Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula has released a video tribute to Anwar Awlaki and Samir Khan that contains previously unreleased audio and video material from Awlaki.Jawa Report has obtained a copy. We do not intend to upload it but we will make a copy available by email request to Howie.
The video is titled, "Anwar Awlaki, the Martyr of Dawah," a clear effort to continue the argument that Awlaki was killed not for his role in terrorist operations but for his Islamic preaching.
The video, released by AQAP's Malahem Media, features very strong production values and English subtitles as well as English audio.

Teen Suspended From School For "Hugging"
Uh-huh. "Hugging." Isn't this how Howie got into trouble at last year's Christmas party?
A 14-year-old Missouri boy with Down syndrome whose mother says he “gives people hugs all the time” has been suspended from middle school for allegedly sexually harassing a bus aide, a school official told FoxNews.com. [...]
"He grabbed her around her waist, like a bear hug, and then he gets on top of her and moves in a sexual motion, imitating a sexual act," Mayberry said.
The aide then "screamed for help," leading the school bus driver to separate the boy and the aide, Mayberry said. The incident led to a "short-term" suspension for Scott, according to Mayberry, who declined to indicate exactly how many days the boy was banned from school. (Source)
I'm as sympathetic to the mentally-challenged (is that still the PC term?) as anyone. But if they are incapable of understanding the difference between "hugging" and "dry humping," they do not need to be in a public school with other vulnerable young students.
Some of you may disagree, but imagine your young daughter going to this school with this guy constantly trying to "hug" her, and then someone suggesting she is some sort of a bigot against disabled people because she is offended.
His mom needs to get a clue instead of making excuses.

Taliban Mutilate Muslima
ISLAMABAD, 15 DEC: Pakistani Taliban fighters cut the breasts of a woman who was breast-feeding her child and asked other women to eat the pieces, in a gory incident highlighted in a new report that details the abuse of women in the militancy-hit tribal belt bordering Afghanistan. The incident occurred when five militants walked into a house and saw the woman breast-feeding her child, The Express Tribune quoted the report titled 'Impact of crisis on women and girls in Fata (federally Administered Tribal Areas)' as saying.Pakistani Taliban have killed at least 35,000 since 2007 (mostly Muslims).
The report, released by the human rights organisation “Khwendo Kor” (Sisters' Home, in Pashto) with financial support from the UN, is based on case studies of women from the tribal belt living in camps set up in Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (earlier North West Frontier province of NFWP) for people displaced by militancy and military operations.
Women in the FATA are more susceptible to violence and abuse in a post-conflict scenario, whether or not they are part of the conflict, the report asserts. Another finding is that women in relief camps were forced to have sex for food and non-food items. Girls and widows were at greater risk of such abuse, it said. The report said there was an increase in “honour killings” in which women who were raped were murdered because rape was considered a disgrace to the family. Forced marriages, honour killings, exchange of women between tribes and marriages with first cousins resulting in disabilities among offspring have made women in the tribal areas increasingly dependent.
Missing Woman Aisha Khan
A missing 19-year-old Missouri college student last seen on the University of Kansas campus left her sister a troubling voicemail the morning she disappeared.If anyone has seen Aisha or has information please call.
In the voicemail, Aisha Khan told her sister that while she was studying for finals at an outdoor picnic table, a man who appeared drunk had been harassing her and attempted to kiss her before she hit him and he took off.
"'I slapped him. He just smelled really bad, and I didn't know what to do,'" Khan's sister, Faiza Khan, recalled her sister saying in the voicemail, according to ABC News' Kansas City affiliate KMBC. "She's like, 'You need to pick up your phone. I'm confused.' She was freaked out at that point."
Shortly after, Faiza Khan tried to call her sister back, but her sister did not answer the phone. Faiza Khan rushed to where her sister said she had been studying on the university campus and found Aisha's belongings -- her cell phone, backpack and other items -- but Aisha was nowhere to be found.
...Khan is 5 feet, 2 inches and weighs 120 pounds. She was last seen wearing a black head scarf, black sweat pants, a yellow and black shirt, a black jacket and a black and white coat. The Overland Police Department is asking that anyone who has any information call 913-344-8703.
Supporters have set up a "Help Find Aisha Khan" Facebook page that already has more than 10,000 supporters and a Twitter account, @FindAisha, has been set up. Both are frequently updated.We pray she is found, safe and unharmed and whomever is behind this faces justice.

I don't get it. If we know the Taliban are on Twitter, then we know a) who they are; b) where they are.
Why not just kill them? The ISAF spokesman is a member of the military and therefore a legitimate target in war. Why not the Taliban spokesman?
Kill him. Twitter war over. We win.
Unless, of course, we glean important intel by these a-holes continuing their blathering. In which case, keep it up.

Cracked has an article documenting five dogs who fought in wars, and who kicked the asses of the enemies they met! Too bad dogs can't speak, because these muts would surely have an awesome one liner to deliver right before blowing up some lousy Nazi.
Since it's Christmas and, let's face it, you're not really doing any work at the office anyway, check it out if you have a few minutes between thinking of not-so-original-and-certainly-less-interesting-than-you-think Facebook status updates and searching for celebrity nipple slips.
Here's a bit from their number one pick for most badass dog ever. Meet Gander the Newfoundland, a massive dog adopted by a Canadian rifle regiment which was then sent to Hong Kong in 1941. Forget trip wires, Gander was 170 lbs. of trip wire with teeth that when activated not only alerted his unit of the impending Japanese sneak attack, but single handedly repelled two waves.
But in the third wave, it gets even better:
When Gander sat down to guard the injured soldiers, the Japanese finally collected themselves enough to remember that they were a fighting unit, with weaponry and all that jazz. So they opened fire and chucked a grenade at the terrified group.READ THE REST.
Gander took a calm look at the grenade, seconds away from exploding. Then, almost nonchalantly, he picked the thing up and charged right the fuck again, at the terrified Japanese troops that had just enough time to realize how badly karma was about to bite their ass about that whole "kamikaze" thing.
Gander went out in an explosive blaze of glory, later receiving a posthumous medal for his unbelievable bravery and becoming the only nonhuman soldier whose name is included in the Hong Kong memorial wall in Ottawa.
Terror Supporter and Former Troll Censored31, Banned by Belgian Authorities
Long time readers will remember Censored31 for his hundreds of comments he used to leave. Think of him as a former troll, like Xariff.
It appears that the release of his new book "Al Qaeda on the Rise" plus the fact that one of his friends from the Shariah4Belgium group was recently arrested after they found an AK-47 in his house has finally spurred the Belgian prosecutor's office to get off their rears and take action.
That action, was banning his website. He claims that he was banned because he knew about some sort of conspiracy to cover up an international child porn ring by the Belgian authorities. Right Censored31. It had nothing at all to do with your constant praising of terrorists.
But, never fear, his new website is already up.
Which goes to show that it's not enough to simply take down websites. It takes minutes to put up new websites. I'm not saying that certain sites shouldn't be taken down, but that can't be the end game. It's just one tool in a larger toolbox. If anti-terror laws are to have any teeth, then the terror supporters must be prosecuted.
Look, for instance, at British laws banning a number of Anjem Choudary's hate groups. Each time a group is "banned", Choudary simply forms another group under another name. Whether a group is called "al Muhajiroun", "al-Ghurabaa", or "Islam4UK" it's the same group.

Barrack Obama, Liar in Chief, Claims Victory in Iraq as Re-election Tool
A buddy emailed this. It's a letter from our Commander in Chief reminding us that the war in Iraq is over and he implies that he's responsible for it.
But this isn't a victory letter thanking our troops. No, it's from his reelection campaign.
The notion that Barrack Obama had anything at all to do with winning two very distinct and separate wars in Iraq is absolutely a lie.
In our war against Iraq our troops defeated one of the largest military forces in record time and with minimal friendly casualties. Obama opposed the removal of the Baathist Hussein regime.
In our second war against Islamist insurgents in Iraq, our military was on the verge of defeat when President Bush made the unpopular move to increase troop strength and refocus our strategy. Obama opposed this move. He would have had us lose in Iraq, rather than win it.
Lastly, the December 2011 end date to our troops being in Iraq was negotiated by the Bush Administration. Any implication that Obama had anything at all to do with that date is a lie of the highest order. In fact, Obama tried to extend the military mission in Iraq past the deadline that the Bush administration had set ... and failed.
If this victory belongs to any one, it is to our troops, our commanders who boldly adopted the surge strategy, and to President Bush for making the unpopular decision to win the war.
Thank you each and every one who served in Iraq.
Here's the letter. It makes me sick to read it:
Friend --Thanks to Hank.
Early this morning, the last of our troops left Iraq.
As we honor and reflect on the sacrifices that millions of men and women made for this war, I wanted to make sure you heard the news.
Bringing this war to a responsible end was a cause that sparked many Americans to get involved in the political process for the first time. Today's outcome is a reminder that we all have a stake in our country's future, and a say in the direction we choose.
Paid for by Obama for America
The weirdest video I have ever seen in my whole born put together.
So the North Koreans are the world's biggest crybabies.... on cue even.
As brutal as Egypt was before, nothing compares to the new Egyptian democracy, courtesy of the Obama Administration.
I'm really torn over the whole issue. On the one hand, it horrifies me to see such images. People should have the freedom to peacefully protest. They should have a certain amount of freedom to control their own lives.
On the other hand, did these people honestly believe Sharia law and the path leading to it would be more humane, more just than secular law? Can they really be so blind as to think replacing a Western-compliant government with a hardline Islamic regime would have benefited them? After 1400 years, there is still no peaceful, free Islamic nation. What is it about this past year that made people believe all that could change?
There's the old saying, 'be careful what you ask for - you may just get it.' These people asked for change. Unfortunately, they were so deceived by religion, they couldn't see what change was coming.
And the worst is yet to come.

AFA Hates All American Muslim, Disneyland, Boobies
In case you were thinking of shopping at Home Depot had Lowes not bowed the the AFA email campaign, guess what, they hate Hope Depot as well.
In fact there's probably not much that you could do that AFA can't find a reason to dislike.
I used to get their emails, and eventually when I found out there were against Boobies, that was the last straw. Spam city.
See these folks aren't for smaller government. They are for coding religion into law. I'm not talking about the ten commandments on the court house wall either. These are the types of well meaning folks that voted for prohibition..... the second time.
Funny is it not that Sharia law also comes prohibition included?
In so much as their criticism of All American Muslim, a show which I admit I've never seen, they are saying that because the show does not address the issue of terrorism that its somehow deserving of ire?
There are only two instances where I feel Islam and or Muslims are any danger to America. Those who intend to commit acts of terrorism or are members of specially designated terrorist groups. Or those advocating terrorism or for terrorist groups that are engaged in hostilities to the US in a time of war.
That's it. Otherwise Muslims here are just as free as anyone else.
Of course the AFA or any other group are free to argue for boycotts of Boobies or on the other side some Muslims might argue for Sharia law.
Its why moderate activism is so important. We have to use the freedom we grant to all the other morons to tell them when they are stepping over the line. We have to be there to be sure that Sharia or other religious law encoded in our secular system is not appropriate.
If a company wants to pull its ads because it fears the bottom line after this campaign against selling Muslims 2x4s well I guess that's their right. And because they are chickenshit. I'll buy mine probably wherever the AFA or CAIR says I should not just to be stubborn.
But what's for sure is that for other advertisers there is a great opportunity to get eyeballs on your product during a show that for certain the AFA and CAIR, both sides of the same coin, have now stirred up so much buzz about. Neither are groups I care much for. Its seems both are the only winners in this.

Today Is Shop At Lowe's Day
Stop by Lowe's and pick up a useful item for your home. Help counter the Muslim boycott of the home improvement company.
This isn't about Islam or bigotry. This is about a company in a free country being able to decide who it supports and who it sponsors. If Lowe's chooses not to advertise on a particular program, it's their decision. We can show our approval or disapproval by shopping there, or somewhere else.
But these strong armed tactics - branding the company as "racist" and "bigoted" for not wanting to waste advertising dollars on a low-rated, controversial program is wrong.
Police Brutality Coloring Book Now Available
Here's your dilemma: You're at an #Occupy protest with your kids and it's your turn in the drum circle. How do you keep the children entertained? Like any good parent, you give them a coloring book!
Oh, wait, the creator states it's not for kids. I guess a coloring book is way too advanced for a child of a hippie. It is meant for the mentality of an adult #Occutard.
After protesters have mastered coloring within the lines, they can move to a more complex reading series entitled, "Dick And Jane In Zuccotti Park" about the adventures of two young explorers avoiding the pitfalls feces-filled encampments and the lure of child-molesters offering free brownies.
This project has inspired me to create my own #OWS coloring book. Below the fold is a sneak peek at just one of the many drawings you'll find. And, unlike the "Police Brutality Coloring Book," which requires many different color crayons like blood red, police blue, bruising yellow and corporate green, my book only requires one color - brown.

Cheerleader Smuggling Scheme
(Miami, Florida) U.S. Homeland Security Investigations division in Miami has busted an illegal alien cheerleader smuggling operation launched from Colombia. Sixteen people traveled with phony documents from Bogota, Colombia to Miami under the guise of participating in a cheerleading competition.
In total, seven smugglers were prosecuted for immigration fraud and nine cheerleaders, including seven minors, were deported back to Colombia. The last smuggler, Duastin Salazar, 28, pleaded guilty this week and was sentenced to time served and a $100 fine.
An ICE spokesman said the scheme was "definitely unique."

We are basically threatening to hang ourselves over the question over whether the next government will be quite rightwing or very rightwing.Read the rest.
Worse case scenario? Let's say it's merely "quite rightwing." The government would be more conservative, overall, than it ever, ever was under Reagan.

U.S. Transfers War Criminal to Iraqi Government
If war itself is an act of injustice, then is the price for ending the war worth the cost of letting a murderer go free?
The Obama administration turned over the last remaining American prisoner in Iraq to the Iraqi government on Friday...UPDATE: MAF reaction:
The prisoner, Ali Musa Daqduq, a Lebanese suspected of being a Hezbollah operative, is accused of helping to orchestrate a January 2007 raid by Shiite militants who wore American-style uniforms and carried forged identity cards. They killed five American soldiers — one immediately, and four others who were kidnapped and later shot and dumped beside a road.
The nation’s largest pro-troop organization, Move America Forward blasted the Obama Administration for allowing the transfer of the prisoner Ali Mussa Daqduq to Iraqi custody. Military prosecutors are doubtful that he will receive proper justice in Iraqi courts, worse, he could even be set free.
“The Obama administration did nothing to hold Daqduq, who is a known Hezbollah terrorist and was in US custody, but was handed over today to Iraqi courts where he will probably either go free or receive just a slap on the wrist. It’s an obscene miscarriage of justice that flies in the face of our mission to win the war on terror. This terrorist should have been taken to Guantanamo Bay, not simply handed over.” said Danny Gonzalez, Director of Communications for the pro-troop group.
“Daqduq is suspected of engineering a kidnapping in 2007 that led to the deaths of 5 US troops, he’s a known Hezbollah operative who has been to Iran, trained and recruited other terrorists, and he’s the highest ranking Hezbollah operative in current US custody, a very important person to hold.” said Gonzalez. “Is it now US policy to let slip known terrorists who we know helped or was directly involved in the killing of Americans?” asked Gonzalez.
“US officials and legislators have known for months that Daqduq was a high value captive and the administration had plenty of time to negotiate his custody as part of the withdrawal. Several Senators and Congressmen including Senators John McCain, Saxy Chambliss, Kelly Ayotte, Scott Brown, Jon Kyl, Joe Lieberman, Mark Kirk, James Inhofe and others had sent letters to the Secretary of Defense pleading for him to take action on this and get this guy put in GITMO where he belongs, but the warnings fell on deaf ears. Now this terrorist could be back on the streets in Iran, Iraq, Lebanon or elsewhere, engineering the killing of innocents.” concluded Gonzalez.
Congressman Goes On Hunger Strike To Show Solidarity With #Occupy Protesters
Representative Keith Ellison went on a 24-hour
diet hunger strike to show his support for the #Occupy protesters who apparently went on a hunger strike December 8th:
Rep. Keith Ellison, D-Minn., embarked on a 24-hour hunger strike in solidarity with four Occupy DC protesters who have gone without food since Dec. 8 to advocate for D.C. voting rights.
I suggest the protesters also pledge to forgo all water as well, just to speed things up a bit before the holidays.
That'll teach the 1%, those bastards!
Wastetoids Meth Addicts Totally Ragged at Iowa Hawk
Iowa Hawk the greatest satirist who ever lived.....
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Only a few weeks before the first Republican presidential contest, some Iowans are on the attack like never before.Look I'm from the midwest, not Iowa zactly but close enough for government work. I enjoy Iowa Hawk's writing for that very reason. Its spot on exaggerated satire. If there wasn't a grain of truth to it, well it wouldn't be funny. If you're angry about it you've probably misplaced your funny bone in the seed jar.
They're writing angry blog posts, doing research to discredit their opponent and railing against elites, but this vitriol isn't aimed at Republican candidates. It's focused on University of Iowa journalism professor Stephen Bloom, whose article for The Atlantic magazine's website painted Iowans as uneducated Jesus freaks who love hunting and don't deserve the political clout they will exercise Jan. 3.
Every four years, some pundits and voters complain about the small, largely white states of Iowa and New Hampshire getting to play outsized roles nominating presidential candidates with their first-in-the-nation contests. But what makes Bloom's critique stand out is that it came from within and was expressed in brutal terms by a talented writer who has spent years reporting on Iowa.
Add in some factual inaccuracies, sweeping generalizations and stereotypes about Iowans, and you have an outrage that is playing out from Sioux City to Keokuk (which he labeled "a depressed, crime-infested slum town".)
So what is clear about this is that finally after all these years the corn has finally gotten to Iowans. If you can't laugh at yourself well then you're probably going to have a problem with cabin fever this winter and should think of moving to a warmer more progressive and tolerant state like say Alabama.
But as much as I enjoy making fun of Iowa its not half as enjoyable of making fun of those truly backward and uncivilized transvestite/transexual pheasant hunters.. the Nebraskans!

Irony: Group That Supports Government Censorship Laments Conviction of Terror Propagandist
Ahmed Faraz, who published and disseminated propaganda for terrorists in the UK, has been convicted and sentenced to three years. From his bookshop in Birmingham the material he distributed ended up in the hands of, well, just about every unsavory character in the UK:
His customers included Mohammed Sidique Khan, the leader of the July 7 bomb plot, and members of the trans-Atlantic airline gang, who quoted from his texts in their suicide videos.I'm not sure how I feel about laws banning books, but I do know I feel no remorse for this piece of crap.
His books were found among the belongings of Habib Ahmed, a key al-Qaeda lieutenant from Manchester, and Andrew Ibrahim, who planned to blow up a shopping centre in Bristol.
Among a series of raids on the bookshop was one in 2007 as part of an investigation into a plot to kidnap and behead a Muslim solider.
I can't say the same about the evildoers over at Cageprisoners, the "human rights" group which is really a front for terror supporters. The same people who would like to outlaw blasphemy, end freedom of religion, and curtail other basic freedoms lament the state of civil liberties in the UK:
The implication of this case, which is essentially about books and ideas, presents a highly disturbing vision for the future of freedom of expression in Britain. If ideas are deemed controversial, the solution is to debate them, not ban them. Furthermore, if these books are now banned, what will the authorities do with the confiscated stock? One can only assume they will be destroyed – they will be burned.If that's not hubristic hypocrisy, I don't know what is!
UPDATE: Randy adds some more context:
For those of you keeping track of Guantanamo detainees, this very same bookstore was once owned by Moazzam Begg -- the former Gitmo resident who now runs Cageprisoners.
So, it's not just any old jihadi bookstore.
Man Arrested for Light Saber Assault
I thought the best part would be some random crazy dude with a light saber hitting people at a toy store. That's comedy gold as it is.
Nope, not even close.
The best part is that when faced with being tazed by the local cops, there is no better weapon to have than a light saber:
Portland police wrestled a man to the ground who had reportedly been swinging two 'Star Wars' light sabers at customers in a Toys R Us store at Jantzen Beach, said Sgt. Pete Simpson....Boom, winning!
Before officers arrived, dispatchers were told the man had walked out into the parking lot, still swinging the swords. Police found the man in the lot talking incoherently.
An officer tried to use a Taser, but the device failed. A second Taser also failed after the man used the light sabers to break one of the wires, Simpson said.
Light sabers 2, tasers 0!

#OccupyPortland Blocks Holiday Food Aid For Poor
#OccupyPortland, aka the 99%, sacrifices 15% to get back at the evil 1%.
The #Occutards blocked a food shipment destined for needy families.
Ironically, it was the 1% donating time, money, trucks, and employees to help get that food away from the "99%" occupiers. This just shows the #Occupy movement is nothing but a bunch of greedy, spoiled miscreants who care about no one but themselves.
Keep in mind:

Pakistan Will Allow NATO Convoys
Pakistan is formulating plans to tax NATO for every load of supplies trucked through its territory en route to Western forces in Afghanistan, according to a report in British newspaper The Guardian.Lets face it, this is simple protection money that will be used to buy arms and finance the Taliban. We'll be paying them to fight against us even if the containers make it to Afghanistan.
Citing anonymous military and civilian sources, the report suggests Pakistan may levy a charge of $1,500 per shipping container, and a separate charge for tankers, when it finally reopens its border to NATO traffic. The border convoys were halted by Pakistan in retaliation for a U.S. air strike which killed 24 Pakistani soldiers last month.
Breaking!: Rod Blagojevich Not on Dope

That's according to defense attorney Sheldon Sorosky, who says he doesn't know what Blagojevich said to a probation officer to lead to that conclusion.

Western Jihadtube Users Coveted by Terror Groups
Two weeks ago, 24-year-old Pakistani-American Jubair Ahmad admitted that he had been making videos for Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) from his Woodbridge, Virginia home under the direction of LeT leader Hafiz Saeed's son Talha. Around the same time, governments on both sides of the Atlantic published findings into the link between online activity and terrorism. In the United Kingdom, the Home Office published a paper that concluded "the internet does not appear to play a significant role in AQIR [al Qaeda influenced radicalization]," while in the United States, at a hearing on the Hill, RAND terrorism guru Brian Michael Jenkins concluded that jihadist websites "may create virtual armies, but these armies remain virtual." But while the link between turning individuals from passive consumers into active terrorists may be weak, cases like that of Jubair Ahmad show the important role this virtual army can play in magnifying the message of al-Qaeda and affiliated groups.
Jubair Ahmed is not the first Western individual who has helped establish websites or created video content in support of radical groups. One of the earliest was U.K.-based www.azzam.com, established in 1996, which provided a point from which groups in Afghanistan and Chechnya could broadcast their message while also telling potential recruits how to contact the groups. In addition, www.azzam.com (using the moniker Azzam Publications) helped produce a series of videos and cassette tapes about the fighting in Bosnia and Chechnya that venerated fighters in the field.

Taliban Executes Doctor
They accused her of "preaching Christianity," a charge those who knew her denied. She had saved over 2,000 Afghan lives and worked selflessly to help others. But in the end, the Taliban decided that she should be executed rather than risk even one Muslim converting to Christianity.
A British doctor shot dead by the Taliban was part of a humanitarian mission that had helped 2,000 Afghans, an inquest heard yesterday.
Dr Karen Woo was executed alongside nine other aid workers after they tried to cross a mountain river in August last year. [...]
Shortly before her death she had helped to save the life of a baby boy who was struggling to breathe.
Her team had been halfway through a 120-mile, three-week expedition in the northern Nuristan Province when they were ambushed.

"Academic": Zionists Behind Breivik Massacre
The guy is Swedish, but the allegedly academic "Peace Research Institute" is in Norway. This would be the same country that hosts the Nobel "Peace" Prize. I think we all know how seriously to take "academics" in Norway:
A Swedish professor suggested Israel was behind the bloody terror attacks committed by Norwegian terrorist Anders Behring Breivik this past July, stirring up controversy in the country.Also, Breivik has six letters in it. As does Israel. And Norway.
Research professor Ola Tunander of the Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO) published an article in the Norwegian academic journal Nytt Norsk Tidsskrift in which he called to further examine Brevik's motives...
Tunander mentioned the political tensions between Oslo and Jerusalem in the months prior to the terror attacks in light of Norway's intent to recognize a Palestinian state.
He goes on to link between July 22, the date of Breivik's killing spree, and the significance of that date in Israel's history. Tunander brings up the Lillehammer affair of 1973, when Mossad agents accidently killed a Moroccan waiter in the Norwegian city believing he was Ali Hassan Salameh, the chief of operations for the 1972 Munich massacre of Israeli athletes. One of the agents was arrested the day after the murder, on July 22nd.
The Norwegian professor also discussed the bombing at the King David Hotel in Jerusalem carried out by the Irgun on July 22, 1946.
“We have discussed the right-wing extremist Israeli and Judeo-Christian side of Breivik’s network, Israel’s interest in disciplining Norway, and Israel’s celebration of bomb attacks. In this respect, Breivik’s attack appears to resemble a new king David Hotel attack: July 22nd,” he said.
Think about it.
Every day I'm more and more ashamed to be part of the "academy".

DOJ Targets Sheriff Arpaio
The U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday morning accused the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office of racial profiling in traffic stops and immigration operations and discriminating against Spanish speakers in the county jails.Sheriff Arpaio has until January 4 to decide whether he is going to cooperate. If he fails to cooperate, the DOJ promises to force him.
Assistant Attorney General Thomas E. Perez said at a packed news conference that the findings were not based on isolated incidents and not gleaned solely from statistics but about real people caught up in the sheriff’s web of unconstitutional activity.
“These findings are not meant to impugne your character,” Perez said, in remarks directed at Sheriff’s employees.They just want to help. Sure they do. Heh.
“Our goal is to make your job easier and more rewarding and we want to hear your views about how to do just that.”

Obama Campaign Schemes To Get Your Email
When your Democratic friends donate any amount to the Obama Campaign, they are encouraged to brag about it to their Republican friends. The Campaign website makes it easy to gloat - just provide your friend's email in a convenient web form! (Please ignore the men in black who will later arrive at your friend/family member's house to take him/her away for re-education.)
Sure enough, BarackObama.com has a special Web form for donors who wish to have "fun at the expense of a Republican." Let's say you're a Republican and your 20-something daughter is an Obamabot. (Have you had a DNA test?) She makes a $10 donation to the president's campaign, which sends her an email tweaking you--and your name and email address are now on a list of dissenters against the most powerful man in the world.
Probably this is just what the campaign presents it to be--a juvenile prank that is harmless beyond the nuisance of receiving campaign spam. Then again, remember AttackWatch.com? The Obama campaign has a history of clumsy appeals with vaguely totalitarian overtones.
Bookworm has the email encouraging Obama supporters to share their Republican friend's email addresses.
Jawa Report's Annual Holiday Mailer
Run out to your mailbox now and just wait. It will be delivered by those goofy hoarders soon....very soon....compared to the process of extinction.
This is the way Christians get things done, and probably the reason so many radicals on the left feel justified in attacking Christians.
On December 13th, Rabbi Joshua Hammerman wrote an article for The Jewish Week. In the article, Hammerman wrote that if Tim Tebow led his team to winning the Super Bowl, Tebow's faithful would be embolden and start "burning mosques" and "bashing gays."
Here is the entire paragraph:
If Tebow wins the Super Bowl, against all odds, it will buoy his faithful, and emboldened faithful can do insane things, like burning mosques, bashing gays and indiscriminately banishing immigrants. While America has become more inclusive since Jerry Falwell’s first political forays, a Tebow triumph could set those efforts back considerably.
But pressure continued to mount. Now the whole article has been completely scrubbed. You can still read the cache version HERE.
In a way, it is unfortunate the article has disappeared, though not entirely, thanks to Google cache. It was a good illustration of religious intolerance and the double standard Christians face in today's society. Imagine, for a second, had someone suggested that, say (just off the top of my head), Muslim faithful would start burning churches and bashing non-Muslims, "emboldened" by some sort of event... like Friday prayers, or some Infidel threatening to burn a Quran or... wait... Okay, not a good comparison. Burning churches and bashing Christians is a recreational sport in some parts of the world.
But you get the idea: Christian bashing is fine, because Christians - even the most radical - won't respond with violence. But never, NEVER criticize a certain other religion of violence, even truthfully and factually. To do so, would be racist and a hate crime, not to mention, extremely provocative.
Pennsylvania Bill Outrages Muslims
A bill in Harrisburg that opponents say is targeted against Muslims has followers of that faith upset.That right Khalid, Catholics in America can seek a civil divorce and there's not a damn thing the Pope can do about it. And that's the way it should be.
Professor Khalid Blankinship of Temple University compares following Sharia to the Catholic teaching that divorce is not allowed.
"That would be like going into the Catholic Church and telling them that you can't marry people the way you want or saying you have to allow divorce of people even if the Pope ruled otherwise," said Blankinship.
The Pope can preach that doctrine all he wants but he can't impose law. Neither can your Imam. As it should be.
And the wedding argument is crap as well. Anyone can marry however they like here. All you need is Justice of the Peace or a man of clergy. Muslims get to decide who is qualified to marry people just like every other faith.
Why even Dr. Rusty Shackleford can marry people. He married Vinnie and Ronin last week in a touching if not very gay ceremony.

Remembering Those Still Missing in Iraq
As we have taken down our flag in Iraq and all our soldiers are expected home before the end of the year. I feel I must take time out to remember those who won't be coming home.
One of the reasons I started blogging here with Rusty was the issue of hostages or missing people in Iraq. Some of the stories we worked so hard to publicize and follow ended horrifically, some ended happily but some never ended. Either their fates are unknown or their bodies were never recovered.
Through information requests and requests for help we grew to know some of the families of these folks. There was great joy when one would return and we loved sharing this and feeling that we were at least of some help.
Two of those missing I have followed closely myself and feel a special need to remember.
One is Jeffery Ake who's fate is still unknown. The other is Major Troy Gilbert who died when his plane crashed engaging the enemy. His body has never been recovered. .
The others still missing are Aban Elias, Abbas Kareem Naama, Neenus Khoshaba, Bob Hamze, Dean Sadek, Hussain al-Zurufi and Staff Sgt. Ahmed Altaie.
I pray the Lord continue to comfort and bless their families. We will never forget you.
If anyone knows of anyone still missing or not recovered that is not mentioned here and you would like them to be remembered here. Please email Howie at mchlhwrd(at)gmail(dot)com.

No one had heard about a single case of aids ten years ago in Afghanistan and the country was considered as one of the few “shielded from the worst ravages of the AIDS pandemic”. Why is it now that alongside war, AIDS has also been able to spread and it has been noted that thousands of Afghans have been diagnosed with this deadly virus!!? ...Yeah, the old Afghan saying women are for babies and men are for pleasure has absolutely nothing to do with it!
The astonishing part about all this is that there are still a number of such people who observe and admit that the accursed American democracy is the sole reason behind the spreading of Christianity, AIDS, drugs, intoxicants and various obscenities and perversities but even on top of all of that consider the American occupation beneficial for Afghans and openly show their optimism for the establishment of permanent US bases and give it approval for the next ten years.
Heartache: Guy Who Hunted bin Laden Now in Jail
Remember Gary Brooks Faulkner, the guy who went to Afghanistan looking to kill Osama bin Laden -- with his mind?
He's now in jail on a charge stemming from the fact that he's a convicted felon and therefore unable to possess a weapon.
“The Defendant became somewhat argumentative with the detective and told him that there are two sets of laws,” Walsh’s affidavit reads. “The first pertains to the statute the detective cited prohibiting felons from possessing handguns and the other set of laws are the ones the Defendant lives under. The defendant did not elaborate on the laws he claimed to be subject to.”It turns out that he is crazy, who knew?
Then it got ugly, according to Walsh: Faulkner “said he would use the Detective’s gun to protect himself if he had to and even threatened to shoot police officers if it was necessary to protect himself.” That ensured he was arrested the next day, and charged with possession of a weapon by a previous offender, a class-six felony. (In other words, barely a felony; convictions typically carry a jail sentence of a year.)
Since then, Faulkner has resided in a Weld County jail, awaiting a trial set for March 5 before Judge Julie Hoskins. Hoskins set bail for Faulkner at $10,000. No one has posted bond for him. An e-mail to Faulkner’s brother Scott was not returned.
Noted Belgian al Qaeda Supporter Releases Dutch Book Praising al Qaeda which No One Will Read
Congratulations to Censored31 on his new Dutch eBook "Al-Qaïda in opmars", which is "Al Qaeda on the Rise" in English.
Here's his promo, intentionally hotlinked.
I'd say it's dangerous propaganda, but it's not. How can something be dangerous that no one will read?
Haqqanis Behind Mass Murder of Shias in Afghanistan?
Brian Fishman makes the case:
So there is a complicated story if it is indeed true that Lashkar-e-Jhangvi is the organization that was responsible for these attacks, because it's not plausible that the organization could have done these things on its own. It would have required cooperation with -- at a bare minimum -- Pakistani Taliban groups based in the FATA, but most likely needed some sort of support from the Haqqani network that has demonstrated the ability to reach out across Afghanistan and has conducted major attacks on Kabul before.Given that the central Taliban have disclaimed the murders, who else could it be?
Egyptian Taliban Wants to Destroy Egyptian Heritage
Egypt’s pyramids and the Great Sphinx have survived pharaohs and empires, the Greeks and Romans and Napoleon, World War II and the harsh desert weather. They seem to outlive time itself. But they may not survive the Arab Spring, according to hints found in an article by Der Spiegel’s Daniel Steinvorth.But if a majority agree to this particular implementation of Sharia then why not? After all its called democracy. Why if the majority wanted to end the Coptic problem by destroying their churches and killing or exiling all Christians. If the majority approves then is this not democracy?

Switzerland Home of Cheese, Chocolate, Nuclear Smuggling
It's about time. The smuggling occurred back in 2003:
Three Swiss engineers - a father and his two sons - have been charged with breaking arms export laws by aiding a Pak-led nuclear smuggling ring that supplied Libya's atomic weapons programme, prosecutors said on Tuesday.
The men's formal indictment follows almost a decade of politically-charged investigation that lifted the veil on one of the most successful international intelligence operations to stop nuclear proliferation to rogue states.
Urs Tinner, 46, his brother Marco, 43, and their father Friedrich, 74, are suspected of providing technology and know-how to the nuclear smuggling network of Abdul Qadeer Khan, the architect of Pakistain's nuclear weapons programme, the federal prosecutors office in Bern said in a statement.
But Which One...?
Time Magazine's Person Of The Year is... the protester.
But which one?
Just wondering. They are all pretty much representative of the #Occupy movement (and the radical left, for that matter), but I really think Time should be more specific.

Hawaii Five-0 Crew Disrespects WWII Veterans
National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific at Punchbowl
Twenty-four WWII veterans, 23 of them Pearl Harbor survivors, were at Punchbowl cemetery Friday, December 9. Their visit to the cemetery was part of a trip organized by the Denver based The Greatest Generations Foundation to commemorate the 70th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.The TV crew blatantly interrupted what should have been a solemn occasion. CBS issued a statement of apology. (more....)
While at Punchbowl the vets were honored for their service and given time to visit grave markers of comrades killed in combat.
As the vets entered the cemetery they saw a team from Hawaii Five-O preparing to shoot a scene for an upcoming episode.
"They were on the graves, and that rubbed some of the Veterans the wrong way with all of the camera equipment and the audio and the people walking over the graves. But we did our ceremony, and just as the day progressed last Friday just disrespect after disrespect," said Steffan Tubbs, a member of the board at The Greatest Generations Foundation.
Mickey Mouse & Adolf Hitler Among Wisconsin Democrats Seeking To Recall Governor Scott Walker
And the Wisconsin Government Accountability Board has decided to allow them - and other questionable signatures - as long as the address and dates are valid:
MADISON, Wis. -- The signatures of Mickey Mouse and Adolf Hitler will be counted on recall petitions targeting Gov. Scott Walker as long as they are properly dated and include a Wisconsin address, the board charged with reviewing the petitions was told Tuesday.
The GAB has essentially declared fraud is acceptable. If I lived in Wisconsin, I'd be worried my address was being used (and abused) by these unscrupulous miscreants.
Introducing New Brand New Super Exciting Terrorist Group Ansar al-Sharia
AQAP is increasingly going by the name "Ansar al Sharia," which means Army of Islamic Law,But don't worry, its "democratic".
Beirut -- A majority of Muslims around the world welcome a significant role for Islam in their countries' political life, according to a new poll from the Pew Research Center, but have mixed feelings toward militant religious groups such as Hamas and Hezbollah.
According to the survey, majorities in Pakistan, Egypt, Jordan and Nigeria would favor changing current laws to allow stoning as a punishment for adultery, hand amputation for theft and death for those who convert from Islam to another religion. About 85% of Pakistani Muslims said they would support a law segregating men and women in the workplace.
To be accurate my bad feeling about Sharia is the assumption that because a political majority in Egypt wants it, despite it being antithetical to freedom, abusive to religious minorities, etc, etc..... is that since it was selected democratically, by default a good result.
Sharia law's protections for the minorities are wholly inadequate.

Shooting and Grenade Attack at Bus Stop in Belgium
Updated & Bumped
• Two dead and several injured after blasts in Belgian cityHat Tip: IWS.
• Attackers 'threw grenades at bus-stop'
.... A second attacker has been arrested by the police, Le Soir reports. A third is still on the run, it adds.
They are reported- and caution, this all remains unconfirmed- to have used 'thunderflash' explosive devices, as well as a kalashnivkov.
A child of two years old is reported by Le Soir to be critically injured in the Saint Joseph hospital.
1.16pm: Details are still very confused. Le Soir, Belgium's biggest daily francophone paper, is reporting that the attack was carried out by at least two people- one of whom died in the explosions, one of whom fled.
He is understood to have hidden shortly after 1.30pm [local time] in a wing of Liège's new palais de justice.
Witnesses have reported that shots were still being heard about an hour after the attack took place.
Details are still sketchy. No word as of yet on who or why. Expect updates.
Update: The AP has a news summary about the attacks here.
Update III: Although Belgian authorities are denying any links to "terrorism" 3 Users Say JazakAllah Khair anyway.
According to Jihad Watch the person known to be involved in the attack is one Nordine Amrani.
This fits with claims on an Islamist blog I follow that the attacker was of Moroccan heritage. The claim was that the Belgians are cruel to Moroccan Muslims thus the attack.
This has absolutely nothing to do with the known Islamist presence in both Belgium and Morocco, we swear....
Update: Reports are that Nordine Amrani was once jailed for drug and weapons charges and that he's written books in Arabic and French. If anyone can find his books it would be very interesting so see what he's written.
UPDATE by Rusty: A minimum of 3 innocents killed, plus this douchebag. However, some reports as high as 5 innocents killed, including a baby.
Update by Howie: Another body was found in Nordine Amrani's home. There was a found maid dead in a shed that he was using to grow marijuana.
It appears this event was triggered by that fact that his criminal career was about to end and he intended to take as many people out with him as he could.
Good News: Indicted Terrorist Enabler Still Blogging from Behind Bars
Former "emir" of the Revolution Muslim blog, Jesse Morton (aka, "Younus Abdullah Muhammad") is behind bars waiting trial for threatening the creators of South Park, continues to blog from jail.
Since he's been indicted for his activities online, I'm not sure how it's wise that he's still able to communicate online.
I won't bother to quote any of his second rate mimicking of warmed over neo-Marxist international relations theory, but I do want to note the tagline:
Younus Abdullah Muhammad is a Muslim American and Master of International Affairs presently residing in pretrial solitary confinement in Virginia. He is the founder of Islampolicy.com and can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org . He is currently looking for legal assistance in his case against the U.S. Government.You heard it, he wants you to email him.
Also, what numbnut of an institution of higher ed granted this loser an MA?
I suggest porn. Lots and lots of porn. And not the gay kind. He might like that.
Chained to Islam
Forty-five students, among them young children, were discovered held in chains in a basement when police raided an Islamic seminary in Pakistan last night.I'm sure Censored31 will be here to clear all this up since pics of dead and suffering babies(caused by the west) are a regular feature on his site.
The male students, some said to be as young as 12 but appearing even younger, were found in what amounted to a dungeon at the Madrassa Zakarya in the Sohrab Goth district of Karachi.
Led barefoot from their prison, captives told officers they had suffered regular beatings and been hung upside down as a form of punishment.
Sanaa TV, a local station, showed footage of the raid and the chained students, who danced and cried as police began to free them.
'We were kept in chains and hung upside down and beaten with sticks if we didn't comply. We were told that we would be given training to fight in Afghanistan,' one boy said.
Another told how Taliban fighters had visited the seminary, led prayers and told them to prepare for battle.
The madrassa officials claim that they had chained those students because they were drug addicts and they wanted to rehabilitate them and make them better Muslims,' he added.

A Real Role Model
Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III decided on an unusual way to celebrate receiving the coveted football award:
You'd think Baylor king Robert Griffin III would go wild after winning the Heisman Trophy this weekend in NYC -- but TMZ has learned, the star QB went straight to Ground Zero instead ... to pay his respects.
Griffin family sources tell TMZ, RG3 and several close family members made a beeline from the Best Buy Theater to the 9/11 memorial on Saturday. According to sources, the Griffins are a military family -- and Robert felt it was important to visit Ground Zero for some somber reflection.
What a great guy. This is a true American hero and the type role model our children should be admiring.

Congress Blocks 700 Million in Aid to Pakistan.
A Congressional panel has frozen $700 million in aid to Pakistan until it gives assurances it is helping fight the spread of homemade bombs in the region, a move one Pakistani senator called unwise and likely to strain ties further.We should cut off all aid to Pakistan. Its the best way to protect the lives of our people in Afghanistan. Every dollar we send Pakistan buys a bullet that will be sued to kill our troops. We simply finance a war against ourselves.
Pakistan is one of the largest recipients of U.S. foreign aid and the cutback announced is only a small proportion of the billions in civil and military assistance it gets each year.
But it could presage even greater cuts.
Calls are growing in the United States to penalize Islamabad for failing to act against militant groups and, at worst, helping them, after the secret U.S. raid on a Pakistan garrison town in which al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden was killed in May.

Saudi Arabia Beheads "Witch"
You got to love our "allies" against al Qaeda in Saudi Arabia. Maybe the next time Anthony Bourdain heads to the Kingdom he can spend more time with witches and less time fawning all over American schooled propagandists who think gender segregation is fun?
A Saudi woman was beheaded on Monday after being convicted of practising sorcery, which is banned in the ultra-conservative kingdom, the interior ministry said.
Amina bin Abdulhalim Nassar was executed in the northern province of Jawf for "practising witchcraft and sorcery," the ministry said in a statement carried by SPA state news agency....
Rape, murder, apostasy, armed robbery and drug trafficking are all punishable by death under Saudi Arabia's strict interpretation of Islamic sharia law.
Mauritania: Don't Pay Ransom for Hostages
It's almost as if you reward a behavior with money that that behavior will not only continue but get worse:
Mauritania on Sunday urged that no ransom be paid for European hostages held in the Sahel region by Al-Qaeda's North African wing, at a meeting of European and African defence ministers.France replied by saying it would keep all avenues of returning the hostages open, and then quickly surrendered.
Twelve Europeans, six of them French, are now being held hostage in the arid and poor region south of the Sahara by Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) and by a breakaway faction of the militant group.
"I ask everyone to work to dry up the sources of terrorism and to push the kidnappers into a corner by not paying ransom," said Mauritania's defence minister, Ahmedou Ould Ideye, at the opening of the meeting.
Why I Like Romney -- He's Not Obama and He's not a Liberal
I'm a Newt fan and, in fact, have endorsed him. Mostly because he's a great debater. But when was the last time a President won an election based on his debating performance?
It just hasn't happened in recent memory.
But I'm not as down on Mitt Romney as a lot of people on the right who, I think, confuse the context in which he had to operate politically -- one of the most liberal states in the Union -- with his actual policy preferences.
I think they also confuse the role of a president with the role of a legislator. Legislative experience does not necessarily lead to executive leadership.
Some of the worst presidents we've ever had have come from Congress. See LBJ, Kennedy, and Obama as our most recent examples.
So, Newt's time in Congress are a negative in my eyes. What attracts me to him are his debating skills, his intellectualism, and his big ideas. Those last two attributes, though, might not be so great in an election. We'll have to see.
But what I like about Romney is the fact that all of his experience is as an executive. That includes his time in office and his time in the private sector.
An executive understands that leadership is not about making speeches, which is what Obama is good at, it's about leading. All of Obama's signature pieces of legislation --- stimulus and health care -- were essentially punted to Congress.
Obama is less responsible for stimulus and health care than are Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid. In fact, Obama hasn't really done much in office except make speeches and relied on proxies in Congress to push his agenda.
That's not leadership.
Like I said, I like Newt. I'll vote for him in the primaries. But those of you who confuse Romney with a liberal confuse what is really a scale of conservatism with a bi-modal choice.
If a person does not meet your definition of a conservative, then he must be a liberal.
That isn't how it works in the real world. One can be more or less conservative and still not be a liberal.
In my assessment Newt is more conservative than Romney. But Romney is no liberal. To think that is to redefine the term and make conservatism such a narrow definition that few people meet the criteria of inclusion.
I wouldn't even call Romney a moderate. Certainly not in the George H.W. Bush sense of the word. But he's no Susan Collins or Lisa Murkowski.
Would a moderate call for the foreclosure process to be sped up rather than slowed down? On this and a number of issues this puts Romney to the right of the Republican leadership in Congress.
No, he's not perfect. But this isn't religion we're talking about, it's politics. Those looking for purity in politics should read the collected essays of Edmund Burke.
In any event, here's the Romney add that I saw over at Hot Air that got this post going. Remember, most of the independents will be swayed by ads like these and not be debate performance.
15 al Qaeda "Escape" in Yemen
Wait, haven't I seen this movie before?
Fifteen suspected members of al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula escaped from a south Yemen prison Monday morning, security officials said.I really wish I could say I had some hope for Yemen, but I don't. Saleh is on his way out (cross fingers) and yet the same old relationships and patterns of behavior seem to endure.
The escapees dug a 6-meter tunnel in the western section of the Central Security prison in Aden, the security officials said.
The escapees encountered no government resistance, the security officials said.
Canada Bans Veil from Citizenship Oath Ceremony
It's a good first move, but as Newt Gingrich recently reminded us: sometimes, they lie:
New Canadians will have to remove garments that cover their faces when undergoing an oath of citizenship, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney said Monday.And before we get the usual "stop all Muslim immigration", let me ask you what we should do with the thousands of Muslims who fought alongside us in Iraq and Afghanistan who's families are threatened in their home countries?
The minister told a news conference in Montreal that the ban includes the Islamic niqab or burqa. It takes effect immediately.
Should we just hang them out to dry? Or might it not be a good idea to help them immigrate to the US, where they might be able to continue to help us?
As one Iraq vet once told me about a Muslim who he helped immigrate to the US, "He risked his life for me. What have you ever done?"

American Boy Escapes From Abu Sayyaf Terrorists
A 14-year-old Filipino-American boy abducted in July by suspected Islamic militants in the Philippines is free, officials said.
Kevin Lunsmann was reunited with his mother, the U.S. Embassy in Manila said Monday, without offering additional details.
...Heiko Lunsmann said the boy had plotted his escape for a while and eventually seized the opportunity some time late last week while his guards slept.
He "was spotted alone" Saturday about six miles southwest of Lamitan City on the island of Basilan, a stronghold of the Islamic militant group Abu Sayyaf, the official Philippines News Agency said.
Army officials turned him over to American forces in the southern Mindanao region, the Philippine government said in a statement to CNN affiliate TV 5.
Woman Leaves $13M Fortune to Pet Cat
Maria Assunta left the fortune to her beloved kitty Tommaso when she died two weeks ago at the age of 94. The feline's newfound riches include cash, as well as properties in Rome, Milan and land in Calabria.
London police are labeling #Occupy protesters as domestic terrorists, citing an increased crime rate at #Occupy sites, including illegally entering and occupying empty and abandoned buildings.
It happens here in America as well. #Occutards have taken over empty offices they feel entitled to, since the owners choose not to use the building as they see fit.
“The building has been abandoned for a good few years now and we think it is crazy for a bank to have it empty and not used when we know at the same time there are so many family homes that have been repossessed. Occupying that building and giving it back to the community is definitely not a terrorist act,” [Occupy spokesman Spyro Van Leemnen] added.
Redistribution of property. If you don't use your property as these #Occupy protesters see fit, they think they have the right to take it from you.
Obama Was Ardent Communist
Barack Obamas isn't really a communist, he's a Communist.
But is it really fair to suggest he may be a Marxist? Or was there evidence for it all along?I've taken some heat now and then for suggesting that Obama's relationships with the New Party and many Chicago area communists and socialists indicated he was a communist. I was told, no he just wanted to get "progressive" votes. He wasn't really a communist, he was just looking for support from communists.
Well, consider the words of John Drew, a man whom writer Paul Kengor calls “Obama’s Missing Link.” A contemporary of Obama’s at Occidental College three decades ago, Drew says that he himself was a Marxist at the time — and part of Obama’s inner circle. And what does he reveal?
Obama was an “ardent” “Marxist-Leninist” who “was in 100 percent, total agreement with [his] Marxist professors,” said Drew.
In fact, Drew states that while he was a more nuanced Marxist who tried to convince Obama that old-style communist revolution was unrealistic in the West, the future President would have none of it and considered Drew a “reactionary.”
Well, I guess I was......right on the money.
To his credit hasn't suggested that the Federal government start seizing private property.....yet.
Sandcrawler PSA: Drunks Are Slutty
Investigators in the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto, Canada, conducted a meta-analysis of 12 experiments that tested the cause-and-effect relationship between alcohol consumption and the intention to engage in unsafe sex. In these experiments, the researchers randomly allocated the participants to a drinking group or a sober group, and measured their intention to have sex without a condom.This must have been part of the Canadian stimulus package? Or did that come after the drinks?
In a real marxist society - the utopia these #Occutards long for - some of those in this video would have been hauled away never to be seen again. But living in a free society, they can behave like the children they are without any consequences.
Watch how they hop around taunting those with whom they disagree. Then they steal the guy's sandwich and break his glasses. This is the type thing I would expect from preschoolers when the teacher isn't looking.
But as incredible as it is, these are supposedly adults.

Watch Out, Jonas Brothers - Obama Was Serious About Using Predator Drones
May 2010, President Obama 'jokes' about using Predator drones on Jonas Brothers:
While most of the President’s comedy monologue at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner last Saturday was quite warmly received, some in the media are protesting that jokingly threatening the boy band with predator drones– which have been linked to civilian deaths abroad– is disrespectful to the loss of human life.
December 2011, North Dakota police deploy Predator drone to help capture criminals:
Janke knew the gunmen could be anywhere on the 3,000-acre spread in eastern North Dakota. Fearful of an armed standoff, he called in reinforcements from the state Highway Patrol, a regional SWAT team, a bomb squad, ambulances and deputy sheriffs from three other counties.
He also called in a Predator B drone.
As the unmanned aircraft circled 2 miles overhead the next morning, sophisticated sensors under the nose helped pinpoint the three suspects and showed they were unarmed. Police rushed in and made the first known arrests of U.S. citizens with help from a Predator, the spy drone that has helped revolutionize modern warfare.
Not that I wholly object to using such technology on criminals (or the Jonas Brothers, for that matter). Just being careful - when Obama jokes about something today, it could become a reality tomorrow.

Gunman Shouting Allahu Akbar Randomly Shoots at Cars in Hollywood?
Update: Shooter ID'd, not a Muslim
My initial reaction was that this guy is just crazy. I'm from LA, people are crazy.
Also, the guy is wearing a wife beater. Not the usual style of dress from the would be jihad crowd.
In fact, he looks like a guy trying to commit suicide by cop.
But this one report has a witness claiming that he was screaming allahu akbar.
So, sudden jihad syndrome? Maybe the witness got it wrong? Witness often get it wrong, tons of studies show this.
Or is yelling allahu akbar a method of trying to get cops to shoot you?
Here's the video. The allahu akbar witness is just past the 2:30 mark.
Thanks to herr Oyal
UPDATE: Like I said, witnesses are notoriously unreliable:
Tyler Brehm, 26, died near the intersection of Sunset Boulevard and Vine Street minutes after wandering up the street firing a handgun...So, it looks like a nut inspired by lost love or some other nonsense.
A Facebook member by the name of Tyler Brehm is listed as living in Hollywood and being from Carlisle, Penn.
On Tuesday, the site lists him as switching his status from “in a relationship” to “single."
The Facebook page has a photo album titled “Cali Dreams” apparently of a trip he took to California in 2009. He’d recently changed his hometown to Carlisle and listed his place of residence as Hollywood.

Inevetable: Fake bin Laden Death Video Making Rounds
Someone sent me a video making the internet rounds and currently posted at the snuff video site Documenting Reality and labeled "UBL Death Video" purporting to show the dead body of Osama bin Laden.
It's a fake.
Unless you are under the impressionNavy Seals or maybe the autopsy team on board the aircraft carrier where bin Laden's body was taken speak Arabic to each other and can't resist chanting allahu akbar, then I'm not sure how people are getting suckered in by this one.
It's a common practice for hoaxers to take previously circulating video and then just relabel them. Just two weeks ago I noted that a video an old al Qaeda beheading video was making the rounds relabeled as they Syrian regime murdering protesters.

Oldie, but goodie - Apaches take out Iraqi farmers:
Did I say farmers? That's what I meant to say. In latest news, a Canadian citizen is being held on terrorism charges for helping Tunisia insurgents kill 5 U.S. Troops. During the investigation, it was revealed that Jihadists refer to active insurgents as "farmers" (emphasis mine):
On wiretaps, Muhammad 'Isa was overheard last year discussing with someone in Iraq how he used code words when discussing the Iraq operation, the papers say.
"For example, when I want to name the brothers, I say the farmers -- because they plant metal and harvest metal and flesh," the papers quote him as saying.
He also explained that he used the term "married" to mean "in the afterlife."
So now they're 'married farmers.'
He's testifying in a murder trial. He was next in line at the Dr.'s office when some dude dropped dead.

WH Strategy for Terror Shows Bigotry of Low Expectations for Muslims
Let me say that I think Newt gets a bad rap for some comments he's said in the past which I think were taken out of context and linked in Berger's Foreign Policy piece, but other than that I think he's square on:
It is appropriate for law enforcement and intelligence agencies to single out individuals who possess the inclination and the capability to kill dozens or hundreds of people at a time. That is what drives the use of informants, drones, and other extraordinary tactics. That is why the government pursues al Qaeda and its adherents with such laser focus.Read it from the beginning.
But let's be clear: al Qaeda adherents are targeted because of their tactical focus on mass casualties, not because they are Islamists and not because they are Muslims. The fact that they are found among Muslims is an unavoidable reality, as is the corollary that law enforcement activities countering al Qaeda will take place among Muslims.
Discrimination against Muslims in this country is unfortunately real. And it is unfortunately true that some American Muslims mix their religion and politics in ways that makes other Americans uncomfortable. But neither of these facts is responsible for -- or even all that relevant to -- America's focus on combating al Qaeda.
Unfortunately, the talking points have taken possession of our politicians.
It is unnecessary and counterproductive to treat the broad community of American Muslims as if they are monsters to be feared or children to be placated. It's time to start talking to them as what they are -- Americans who can handle a frank conversation about the safety of Americans.
Let me disagree on one other point and I actually think its much worse than Berger implies. Not only can we not use Islamic terror, but the administration is unable to even use the terms Islamism or Islamist. It's as if these terror groups grew up in a vacuum.
It is not illegal to be an Islamist. We do not target al Qaeda because they are Islamists, as Berger notes, but because they use violence. However, it seems awfully shortsighted to not recognize that the Salaafi way is just a subcategory of Islamism that often disagrees with more "moderate" Islamist groups only as to means but not in ends.
Look, not all white supremacists are violent. But no one tries to exclude racist ideology from the conversation when we discuss neonazi violence. And when we talk about neonazis none of us think that the conversation is pointed toward white people in general.
The fact that some cannot distinguish between Islamists -- those who support the imposition of Islamic law -- and Muslims in general does not mean that those in government and law enforcement should not be trained in the dangers of the latter as a precursor to violence.
Most white people aren't white supremacists. Most white supremacists aren't violent. Nonetheless, one could do worse than scrutinize the Aryan nation for possible violent individuals.
The same goes with Muslims. Most Muslims in America do not support political Islam. Most Islamists in America do not believe in terrorism as a means to their political ends. Yet, one finds that nearly all homegrown terrorists are Islamists of one flavor or another.
If we don't want to offend Muslims, fine. I can live with asking law enforcement to choose their words wisely so as not to offend those who's help is needed.
But when we are not even allowed to identify a political ideology which denies even the most basic human right to individuals as the wellspring from which most homegrown terror springs because we might offend Muslims who are not themselves Islamists, then it's time to throw in the towel.
It's come to this...

A Canadian citizen has been indicted for aiding in the murder of American servicemen in Iraq:
NEW YORK—Today, a federal grand jury in Brooklyn, N.Y., returned an indictment charging Faruq Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa, 38, aka “Faruk Khalil Muhammad ‘Isa,” “Sayfildin Tahir Sharif” and “Tahir Sharif Sayfildin,” with aiding in the murder of five American soldiers in a suicide-bomb attack in Iraq in April 2009.Unfortunately, he won't face the death penalty as the wussies up in Canada won't extradite prisoners if the death penalty is an option.
Specifically, he is charged with the murders of Staff Sergeant Gary L. Woods, 24, of Lebanon Junction, Ky.; Sergeant First Class Bryan E. Hall, 32, of Elk Grove, Calif.; Sergeant Edward W. Forrest Jr., 25, of St. Louis; Corporal Jason G. Pautsch, 20, of Davenport, Iowa; and Army Private First Class Bryce E. Gaultier, 22, from Cyprus, Calif.
The indictment also charges the defendant with conspiring to kill Americans abroad and providing material support to that terrorist conspiracy to kill Americans abroad.
In January 2011, the defendant was arrested and detained in Canada after he was charged by a federal complaint in the Eastern District of New York. The United States is seeking the defendant’s extradition from Canada in relation to the federal complaint in the Eastern District of New York. He remains in custody, and the defendant’s extradition hearing in Canada is currently scheduled for Jan. 30 to Feb. 1, 2012.
The charges were announced by Loretta E. Lynch, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York; Lisa Monaco, Assistant Attorney General for National Security; and Janice K. Fedarcyk, Assistant Director in Charge of the New York Field Office of the FBI.
The government’s investigation is being conducted by the FBI New York Joint Terrorism Task Force, with assistance provided by the Department of Defense, the Royal Canadian Mounted Police and the government of Tunisia.
If convicted, the defendant faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
The government’s case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Zainab Ahmad, Carter H. Burwell and Berit W. Berger, with assistance provided by Mary Futcher and Stephen Ponticiello of the Counterterrorism Section in the Department of Justice’s National Security Division. The Criminal Division’s Office of International Affairs also provided assistance in this matter.
The charges in the indictment are merely allegations, and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

Muslims Sue Hertz For Paid Prayer Breaks
But not just for paid prayer breaks. Included in the lawsuit are accusations of speaking too "harshly" to Muslims and "peering" at Muslimahs for no reason (all emphasis mine):
Hertz rental car company, facing a religious discrimination suit by 25 fired Muslim drivers, said on Thursday it would "vigorously defend" itself in a dispute involving prayer breaks at its Seattle airport office.
Hertz says the drivers, all of them Somali natives, refused to clock in and out for the 10-minute paid breaks they took twice daily, as required under their union contract, and abused their breaks by failing to return to work promptly. [...]
Besides Hertz, the lawsuit names two Hertz managers as defendants, accusing them of addressing Muslim workers in a harsh tone, peering into the women's designated prayer space for no reason and banging on the women's restroom door.
Hertz is vowing to fight the lawsuit, and in some ways, the implementation of dhimmitude in America.

Loss of RQ-170 Not That Big A Deal
have some doubts about the model shown yesterday. The color is the same as Iranian AF planes and to me the wing joints look too sloppy. Add to that the US is said to have located the drone and imaged it with significant damage. But even if Iran had a fully intact RQ-170 its not that big a deal.
The design lacks several elements common to stealth engineering, namely notched landing gear doors and sharp leading edges. It has a curved wing planform, and the exhaust is not shielded by the wing. Aviation Week postulates that these elements suggest the designers have avoided 'highly sensitive technologies' due to the near certainty of eventual operational loss inherent with a single engine design and a desire to avoid the risk of compromising leading edge technology.Also interesting...
On the basis of the few publicly-available photographs of the RQ-170, aviation expert Bill Sweetman has assessed that the UAV is equipped with an electro-optical/infrared sensor and possibly an Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar mounted in its belly fairing. He has also speculated that the two fairings over the UAV's wings may house datalinks and that the belly and above wing fairings could be designed for modular payloads, allowing the UAV to be used for strike missions and electronic warfare. The New York Times has reported that the RQ-170 is "almost certainly" equipped with communications intercept equipment as well as highly sensitive sensors capable of detecting very small amounts of radioactive isotopes and chemicals which may indicate the existence of nuclear weapons facilities.The loss of an RQ-170 is in the design. It can even deliver weapons if needed or even be a radar platform.
The United States' known true stealth drone is made by Boeing and is called the Phantom Ray. While the RQ-170 is made by Lockheed Martin.

American Jihad Propagandist Killed by Pakistani Police?
Members of GIMF in Germany celebrate Muhammad M's release from prison
The Global Islamic Media Front (GIMF) has issued a press release claiming one of their leaders, known as Abu Umar online, was killed in Karachi by Pakistani police. GIMF is an online network of radicals that specialize in translating jihadi propaganda for dissemination to Western audiences. The group's central membership was in German speaking countries, but has members throughout the West, including the US & Canada.
However, over the last few years they have established deeper ties to actual terrorist organizations, such as the al Shabaab group in Somalia for whom they act as official facilitators. Many GIMF members have been jailed over the years, mostly in Germany and Austria.
The press release named Abu Umar as Abd al-Moeed bin Abd al-Salam. It claims that Abu Umar once was a U.S. resident and that he and his family lived here during the 9/11 attacks which inspired him to dedicate his life to violent jihad.
The clumsy wording of the release indicates that it was probably not written by someone who spoke English as a native language or that it was translated, poorly, from some other language. So, it's not clear if he himself became a citizen or just his family.
Here is some of the wording that may indicate that Abu Umar was a naturalized citizen:
This hero was born on July 17, 1974, and was raised and grew up in a rich family, studying in the best schools and universities. He worked as a teacher in global companies with high salaries in Yemen and America, such that he even obtained American citizenship for his parents....It then goes on to state that he was too important for the cause in his translation work to go fight on the front lines. Ever notice how they all think that?
in 2001, when the knights of Qaedat al-Jihad executed the Manhattan raid in the land of infidelity America where our hero lived with his family, our brother heard the news of the blessed operation from his father, and his yearning for Jihad and fighting in the path of Allah increased, as did his desire to live among the Mujahideen happily....
So, he emigrated from America to the Land of al-Haramain [ie, Saudi Arabia], and began his Jihadi journey from there.
And yet his affiliation with terrorists still got him killed. Good riddance!
One wonders if his family is still here in the US and if they approved of his endeavors or not?

Indicted Yet Somehow Still Free Terrorist in Norway Calls for Attacks Against US
Civlian hostages shown just before Mullah Krekar's group murders them for "apostasy"
Mullah Krekar is an indicted terrorist from Kurdish Iraq who has been successfully fighting extradition from Norway to his native country where he is wanted for mass murder. Krekar was one of the founder of Ansar al-Islam, an Islamist group with close ties to al Qaeda which under that name or under it's brief stint as "Ansar al-Sunnah" murdered hundreds in Iraq, including the brutal beheadings of dozens of innocent civilians.
Despite dozens of promises from various Norwegian politicians to send him packing, Mullah Krekar remains a free man:
Norway’s Progress Party has called for the immediate arrest of Mullah Krekar after the firebrand jihadist spoke of the need for renewed terrorist attacks on the United States....Yeah, calling for another 9/11 is a real effective way at sending the message that Muslims like Krekar aren't animals.
He also claimed that Islam “will control the entire world” within the next 20 years....
“They have learned nothing from the 9/11 attacks. That’s why they need two more attacks. It’s the only way the Americans will understand that we [Muslims] are people and not animals or slaves.”

German w/ al Qaeda Links Arrested
A 27-year-old German man was arrested Thursday by a police special-ops team in the western city of Bochum on charges he was part of an al-Qaida bomb plot in Europe, the federal prosecutors' office said.
Suspect Halil S. is accused of being part of the so-called "Duesseldorf Cell." The group was allegedly plotting the bombing before its three main members were swept up by police in April, prosecutors' spokesman Marcus Koehler said.
At the time of their arrest, authorities said the three were working on making a shrapnel-laden bomb to attack a crowded place inside Germany, such as a bus, and were experimenting with explosives and detonators but had not chosen a specific target.
Halil S., whose last name was not provided in accordance with German privacy laws, is accused of supporting the three with financial and logistical help, and then attempting to carry forward their plot after their arrest, Koehler said.
L.A. County Holds Mass Burial
From CBS Los Angeles:
The remains of hundreds of Los Angeles County residents whose bodies were never claimed by family or friends were buried in a mass burial Wednesday.
“This holiday season many of us are reminded how fortunate we are to be surrounded by our loved ones,” Supervisor Don Knabe said Tuesday, when he and his colleagues on the Board of Supervisors observed a moment of silence for the people being buried. “Sadly, not everyone shares this blessing.”
He said the 1,639 people designated for the mass interment at the Los Angeles County Crematory and Cemetery “are individuals that, for one reason or another, have no one but the county to provide them with a respectful and dignified burial.”
In other news, the L.A. county voter roll has increased by 1,639 new registered Democratic voters.
L.A. Man to Plead Guilty in Fort Hood Inspired Plot
Non-Terrorist "Workplace Violence" on Rise
Two very related pieces of news, one from my hometown. The city of angels and traitors:
One of two men accused of plotting a terrorist attack on a Seattle military recruiting station will plead guilty in Federal Court on Thursday, his lawyer said.You'll recall that yesterday the Obama administration refused to call the Fort Hood massacre a terrorist attack, instead labeling it "workplace violence".
Walli Mujahidh will change his earlier not guilty plea, said Michele Shaw, his attorney.
The 32-year-old from Los Angeles was arrested in June along with Khalid Abdul-Latif of Seattle in an FBI sting. Federal prosecutors said the men were taken into custody when they arrived at a warehouse garage to pick up machine guns to use in the attack.
Prosecutors said the two men were inspired by the massacre at Fort Hood, Texas, and that they fantasized about the media attention they'd receive.
Terrorist attacks on domestic military facilities have proliferated in recent years, marking service members as prime terrorist targets, defense officials told lawmakers Wednesday.I'd be fine dropping the term "terrorism" from these plots.
The military is now the “target of choice” for violent extremists in the U.S., Assistant Defense Secretary Paul Stockton said during a joint hearing of the House and Senate homeland security committees.
Law enforcement has prosecuted 33 domestic plots or attacks against military targets since Sept. 11, 2001, with most occurring in the last three years, according to a report released Wednesday by the House committee’s Republican staff. That represents more than half of the post-9/11 jihadist plots conceived by U.S. citizens, according to a Congressional Research Service report released last month.
Let's see, what other term describes a citizen who takes up arms against his own military?
Call them what they are: traitors.

On the heels of Pearl Harbor Day, I wanted to repost one of my favorite articles ever. This is an excerpt from Dan Simmons' Time Traveler:
“Let’s imagine,” said the Time Traveler, “that on December eighth, Nineteen forty-one, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt spoke before a joint session of Congress and asked them to declare war on aviation.”
“That’s absurd,” I said.
“Is it?” asked the Time Traveler. “The American battleships, cruisers, harbor installations, Army barracks, and airfields at Pearl Harbor and elsewhere in Hawaii were all struck by Japanese aircraft. Imagine if the next day Roosevelt had declared war on aviation... threatening to wipe it out wherever we found it. Committing all the resources of the United States of America to defeating aviation, so help us God.”
“That’s just stupid,” I said. If I’d ever been afraid of this Time Traveler, I wasn’t now. He was obviously a mental defective.“The planes, the Japanese planes,” I said, “were just a method of attack... a means... it wasn’t aviation that attacked us at Pearl Harbor, but the Empire of Japan. We declared war on Japan and a few days later its ally, Germany, lived up to its treaty with the Japanese and declared war on us. If we’d declared war on aviation, on goddamned airplanes rather than the empire and ideology that launched them, we’d never have...”
I stopped. What had he called it? Category Error. Making the problem unsolvable through your inability – or fear – of defining it correctly.

Fighting Against Cyber Jihad
Over at the Conservative Daily News, Jeff P notes the valuable work of the YouTube Smackdown Corps and encourages you to enlist in their efforts:
The Fight Against Cyber JihadWe haven't done too many posts requesting smackdown help lately, that's because there used to be a daily smackdown email list that now seems to be defunct. So maybe Andrea and the crew will think about starting the list again? Just a thought.
By Jeff P on Dec 07, 2011 in Opinion
The fight against Islamist Muslim extremism goes far beyond the battlefield of soldiers on the ground. It is more than U.S. law enforcement agencies stopping terror attacks on our home soil, the real battle “for hearts & minds” is on the internet and citizen cyber-warriors are at the forefront.
Through the use of use of leading social media platforms such as Google’s YouTube & BlogSpot, FaceBook &, increasingly Twitter, the Islamist jihadi are spreading the ideology of global Islamic supremacy, and recruiting young people all over the world to “kill the unbelievers for allah”.
At the forefront of this fight are a dedicated group of grassroots individuals who spend their free time tracking and reporting these various sites, exemplified by the YouTube SmackDown Corps.
Actress Accused of Discrimination Against Muslims
(Paris, France) Famous French actress and singer Marie Laforêt faces court proceedings for alleged discrimination against Muslims in an advertisement she placed for hired help.
72-year-old Laforêt, who first found fame as an actress in the 1960s, placed an ad on an internet site looking for someone to carry out some work on her terrace in 2009, reported daily newspaper Le Parisien on Thursday.In light of a conventional interpretation of the word should, Laforêt's advertisement appears to only recommend that people with allergies and Muslims not apply.
She specified in the ad that "people with allergies or orthodox Muslims" should not apply "due to a small chihuahua."
Laforêt claimed that she made the stipulation because she believed the Muslim faith saw dogs as unclean.
The case was taken up by anti-discrimination organization Mrap, which lodged a complaint against the internet site which ran the ad.
German Global Islamic Media Front Member Sentenced to 42 Months
A German court jailed a 31-year-old Islamist Tuesday for 42 months, for supporting a foreign terrorist group.Also there are reports of another Islamic extremist related to al-Qaeda today in Bochum.

All the others had earlier been released with suspended sentences or community-service orders.
Munich judges said police intercepts showed he made videos supporting al Qaeda in 2006 and 2007 and uploaded them to the portal.
He was sentenced to prison time on the support-of-terrorism charge because he was the only one who followed his words with action, travelling as far as Tehran to enter a camp run by al Qaeda in Pakistan, but missing his contact in Iran.

Appeals Court Affirms Holy Land Convictions
Let's see CAIR run away from this one:
In Texas today, the U.S. Court of Appeals for Fifth Circuit has upheld the convictions of five jihadists behind the Holy Land Foundation, the piggy bank set up by the Brotherhood in the U.S., under the guise of “charity,” to fund Hamas to the tune of tens of millions of dollars during the deadly intifada.H/T: Will Amos
The three-judge panel’s unanimous 170-page opinion recounts that Hamas was created by Brotherhood operatives in 1987 as the Brotherhood’s “Palestinian branch.” Thereafter, “the Muslim Brotherhood directed its world-wide chapters to establish so-called ‘Palestinian Committees’ to support Hamas from abroad.” In the U.S., the “Palestine Committee” was led by Mousa Abu Marzook (who, for a time in the early Nineties, actually ran Hamas from his home in Virginia). The Palestine Committee created not only the Holy Land Foundation but a number of other Islamist entities in the U.S. The leaders of one of those entities, the Islamic Association for Palestine, subsequently created CAIR — the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which was cited as an unindicted co-conspirator in the case.
Wow: Has Yon Gone Crazy?
Update: Just a bad post without context of other posts
Read this article by Michael Yon on why the US is in violation of the Geneva Conventions and see if he hasn't gone crazy or is just goofing us.
Seriously, who in their right mind could believe such drivel? You know, besides some pencil necked bureaucrat. Or maybe a lawyer. Tell me this is a joke? Please!
Further, although he doesn't "know" if the Taliban are committing war crimes by firing on our medical evac helicopter, he does seem to know that we are violating the Geneva Conventions because ... Army evac medical helicopters sport the red cross?
Wow, that's just really dumb. It's a logical loop built on a technocratic reading of the Conventions.
As I see it, the Conventions were written in order to a) minimize civilian casualties b) protect POWs c) humanize the treatment of the wounded.
How is anything we are doing with our helicopters sporting the red cross violate any of these principles?
Here are, I think, his two main arguments:
Dustoff helicopters behave as combatants by flying over routes not agreed up between all the parties to the conflict.This makes no sense because, as he also states:
The various enemies in Afghanistan are not signatory to the Geneva Conventions. We have no expectation that they know or will follow the ConventionsSince they are not signatories, then who will we negotiate these "routes" that we are "required" to make agreements on with?
We cannot be in violation because a) there is no one to negotiate the routes with; and b) the Taliban and others would agree to no route since they care not one iota whether the infidels and Zionist-Crusaders are wounded or not.
The second objection seems to be:
Dustoff will never obey a summons to land to be inspected by the Taliban, and thus are behaving as combatants.Excuse the French but: What. The. F*ck!?!?
Let us take a hypothetical. A Haqqani network leader radios to a medivac plane requesting him to land for inspection. The helicopter pilot, eager to obey Mr. Yon's version of the Geneva Conventions, lands. They cut off his head and the heads of every wounded soldier on board.
It's like a bad "A guy walked into a bar" joke.
A medivac helicopter lands in Taliban territory. No one flies out.
Yeah, that's some interpretation of the Geneva Conventions for you got there Mr. Yon!
Under this interpretation, the thing which is supposed to protect the wounded and POWs is now being used as a tool to abuse & murder them. The technical requirements of the law are being used to pervert its intent.
Now, Yon doesn't want to see this happen. However, I'm not sure what his point is. He seems to be suggesting that the Army Dustoff helicopters should not sport the red cross.
Okay, they take off the red cross and that ... protects the pilots and passengers more? Makes the Taliban less barbaric somehow? Umm, what exactly?
Normally I like Yon's writing and support his work. Hopefully, his argument is just hyperbole for some other point which he misses the mark on. But if not, he's gone off the deep end believing this illogical and inhumane BS.
UPDATE: A guest in the comments notes that Yon's main point is that the red crosses should be removed so that the helicopters can be armed.
If so, whew. Seriously, I knew I had to be missing something here. It's a problem we, as authors, sometimes make: we post something under the assumption that you've read all our other posts. Without the other posts to give context, the reader is left scratching their heads and wondering WTF?

The device did not detonate and there were no reported injuries. Reuters said the package carried a return address from the European Central Bank’s Frankfurt headquarters.
Obama Administration: Fort Hood Not Terrorism, Just 'Workplace Violence'
Whew. Now that Islamic terrorism isn't a threat, we can all go back to worrying about right wing extremists.
Sen. Susan Collins on Wednesday blasted the Defense Department for classifying the Fort Hood massacre as workplace violence and suggested political correctness is being placed above the security of the nation's Armed Forces at home.
During a joint session of the Senate and House Homeland Security Committee on Wednesday, the Maine Republican referenced a letter from the Defense Department depicting the Fort Hood shootings as workplace violence. She criticized the Obama administration for failing to identify the threat as radical Islam.
Why would the Obama Administration identify radical Islam as a threat? Everyone knows it is America's arrogance that provokes all terrorist attacks. To this Administration, America is the real threat.

Confirmed: Domestic Terror Lawyers Are Stupid
Does context matter? Of course it does. In fact, context is everything.
For instance, a single image posted on two different websites might convey opposite messages.
How is that? Context.
Say the image is of a member of the Taliban murdering a civilian.
On one website, the image is in the context of a post in which the author describes the horror of Taliban rule. The image conveys sick brutality.
On the other website, the image is in the context of a post in which the author describes the blessings of Allah's rule. The image conveys justice.
The same image, two different messages.
I could go on and on with examples like this. But I thought it was important to add that before noting the defense's claim in the Tahrek Mehanna trial:
The lawyer, J.W. Carney Jr., questioned whether there was a difference between Mehanna’s posting of materials on Web forums and the posting of Al Qaeda statements and videos on the website for the Nine Eleven Finding Answers Foundation, for which Kohlmann worked as an investigator.Comparing someone like Mehanna who used videos to advocate al Qaeda's position to Kohlmann who uses the same videos to argue against it could only come from the mouth of a moron.
Kohlmann told prosecutors that “the purpose is to communicate to the general public, to policy makers, academics, law enforcement, to give them an idea of what’s going on with Al Qaeda and extremists.’’
“We were very careful not to put too much information on the website, because we did not want to serve as a mouth piece for Al Qaeda,’’ he said.
But under questioning by Carney, Kohlmann agreed that the website features the same type of materials Mehanna posted, including 37 videos “glorying’’ jihad, most produced by Al Qaeda. The videos were listed under a “Propaganda Videos’’ section.
The site also includes 103 statements by Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, Al Qaeda’s current leader, and other representatives of the terror organization.

UK Muslimas Get Suspended Sentence for Racist Attack on "White Slag"
A gang of Muslim women who attacked a passer-by in a city centre walked free from court after a judge heard they were ‘not used to being drunk’ because of their religion.
The group – three sisters and a cousin – allegedly screamed ‘kill the white slag’ as they set upon Rhea Page as she waited for a taxi with her boyfriend.
...‘We were just minding our own business but they kept shouting “white bitch” and “white slag” at me. When I turned around one of them grabbed my hair then threw me on the ground.
‘They were taking turns to kick me over and over. I thought they were going to kill me.’

Religion of Peace: 500 Lashes for Blaspheming a Man
During the seven hard years that Wafaa Almaribe struggled to survive with her children in Iran and Iraq, her husband kept them alive by sending money from Australia - and poems.See in Sharia you can be prosecuted for not only cursing Allah but almost anyone considered by Muslims to be a prophet or revered person. Even if you don't buy into their particular version of Islam. In short Islam is antithetical to religious freedom even to its own followers.
But they received word yesterday that Mansor Almaribe, a father of five, who was last month charged with blasphemy while on a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia, has been sentenced to a year in prison and 500 lashes.
Mr Almaribe, a Shiite Muslim who was travelling in the majority Sunni kingdom, was found guilty of cursing two companions of the prophet Mohammed aloud in a public place.
70th Anniversary of Pearl Harbor
The Dec. 7, 1941, bombing of Pearl Harbor and those who lost their lives that day are being remembered Wednesday on the 70th anniversary of the Japanese attack that brought the U.S. into World War II.The FDR library has released the President's schedule and timeline for the day here.
About 120 survivors will join Navy Secretary Ray Mabus, military leaders and civilians to observe a moment of silence in Pearl Harbor at 7:55 a.m. Hawaii time — the moment the attack began seven decades ago.
About 3,000 people are expected to attend the event held each year at a site overlooking the sunken USS Arizona and the white memorial that straddles the battleship.
The Pearl Harbor-based guided missile destroyer USS Chung-Hoon will render honors to the Arizona and blow its whistle at the start of a moment of silence at 7:55 a.m. — the same time 70 years ago the first Japanese planes began to attack.
F-22 jets flown by the Hawaii National Guard are due to soar overhead in a missing man formation to finish the moment of silence.

A story that will surely break the hearts of the 99%
According to data collected by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Medicare has spent more than $240 million of taxpayer money on penis pumps for elderly men over the past decade, and will surpass a quarter of a billion dollars this year for costs since 2001.He's appealing his denial on the basis of age discrimination saying, "That old f8cker next door got one!"
Terrorists on Social Media Congressional Hearing
Even though this is a subject near and dear to my heart, I wasn't able to watch today's hearings at the Committee on Homeland Security’s Subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence. Any one know if the video feed is archived? Seriously, how else am I going to make fun of the Zionist Internet Overlords if I don't have images of them testifying before the ZOGs in Congress?
Lawmakers on the House Homeland Security subcommittee on Counterterrorism and Intelligence probed the threat of terrorists using social media tools such as Facebook and Twitter to attract followers at a hearing on Tuesday.Congrats to (Andrew --> WTF?) Aaron, Will, and Evan for finally schooling Congress on this important issue!
They noted that Anwar al Awlaki, known as the "Bin Laden of the Internet," recruited radicals online. The lawmakers pointed to "Jihad Jane," who allegedly plotted to kill a Swedish cartoonist after viewing and commenting on radical YouTube videos....
Andrew Aaron Weisburd, director of the Society for Internet Research, said Internet providers and social media sites should be more pro-active in blocking violent material.
"While it is in no one's interests to prosecute Internet service providers, they must be made to realize that they can neither turn a blind eye to the use of their services by terrorist organizations, nor can they continue to put the onus of identifying and removing terrorist media on private citizens," he said. "I don't believe that Google, operator of YouTube, has an interest in promoting violent extremism, and they have already made some effort to address this issue, but they can and should do more."
The experts noted that social media can also provide the U.S. government with a valuable intelligence tool to monitor extremist groups.
3 Charged in Sweden Trying to Murder Lars Vilks
Three more men have been charged in yet another plot to kill Lars Vilks. When I first read the news I assumed that this was part of the same "Jihad Jane" plot that tried to kill Vilks. Nope, this one was by Somalis inspired by al Shabaab propaganda and by their own murderous hatred of anyone who has "blasphemed":
"The three people now charged in Gothenburg district court are suspected of preparing to commit murder in September 2011 in Gothenburg. The planned victim for the attack was the artist Lars Vilks," prosecutor Agnetha Hilding Qvarnström said in a statement.Hats off to Vilks, the man has cajones.
Vilks has faced numerous death threats and another suspected assassination plot since his cartoon was first published by a Swedish regional newspaper in 2007, illustrating an editorial on the importance of freedom of expression.
The three men planned to stab Vilks to death, Qvarnström told AFP.
"When the three were arrested, they were all carrying knives. One of them had even bought his knife the same day," she said.
The men were identified in documents submitted to the Gothenburg court as Abdi Aziz Mahamud, a 26-year-old Somali citizen living in Sweden, and Swedish citizens Salar Sami Mahamood, 24, and Abdi Weli Mohamud, 26.
MEMRI: YouTube Helping Terrorists Now More Than Ever
No surprise here. It's time for a victim of terror to come forward and sue YouTube. Only then will they "get the message". MEMRI:
Jihadi groups, ranging from Al-Qaeda to British Islamist groups, continue to have a major presence on YouTube. This presence has only increased following the deaths of Osama bin Laden and Anwar Al-Awlaki. Thousands of Osama bin Laden and Anwar Al-Awlaki clips have been posted to YouTube, with sermons, propaganda videos by followers and nasheeds (songs usually referring to Islamic beliefs, history, and religion, as well as current events) devoted to themREAD THE REST.
Hezbollah Leader Acknowledges He Is Borg Hive Queen
The head of Hezbollah admitted today that he was, in reality, the Borg hive queen. The wording of this story from the Iranian News Agency undeniably confirms this:
Hezbollah Secretary General Seyyed Hassan Nasrallah announcing his will to be martyred, said here Monday plotting against resistance is futile as Hezbollah would safeguard it with its blood.I knew it!
Skateboard Gang Chases #OccupyPortland From Camp
Hahahaha! Even the drug dealers are sick of these hippies!
(Pepperspray, up twinkles, Skateboarders, down twinkles! Click for larger view)
About 15 people were sitting on the benches in Director Park, the movement's most recent home for its general assemblies and spokes council meetings, with the remnants of today's food. And many were decidedly unhappy—with what happened, and how occupiers either responded or didn't.
Talk among some at Director Park was that drug dealers wielding skateboards surged in, ate some food, and spat in some occupiers' faces while demanding they leave. Some reports said they were gang members, but that's not confirmed. Either way, the campers packed up and boogied out...
Maybe the cities should hire the skateboard gangs to clear the camps? It appears they are much more effective.
After weeks of spitting on, provoking and insulting police, these #Occupy idiots wonder why the police aren't there to protect and serve.
Taliban Murder 60 Shias in Kabul
Update: Taliban respond to Jawa email, claim they didn't do it
Bumped: Video added
UPDATE by Rusty: Howie emailed the Taliban spokesman "Dr. Talib Mujahid" asking if it was true that he was denying the Taliban were the ones responsible for the mass murder.
The Taliban spokesman responded in an email to The Jawa Report, "Yes, we will reject it."
Apparently lying is second nature to the Taliban who will now, conveniently, blame the CIA and the Jews.
And yes, the Taliban have email and cell phones. And yes, we have both. I'm guessing there is some kind of strategy in letting "Dr. Mujahid" live. But for the likes of me I just can't figure out what it is?
-----begin original post by Howie----
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghan officials say 48 people have been killed in a suicide bombing targeting Shiite worshippers in Kabul.Of course everyone knows that the Taliban are responsible. Specifically Tehrik-i-Taliban Pakistan, the Haqanni's and al-Qaeda. That's not to mention their masters in Pakistani intelligence.
The attacker blew himself up Tuesday in the midst of a crowd of men, women and children gathered outside the Abul Fazl shrine to commemorate the seventh century death of the Prophet Muhammad's grandson Imam Hussein.
Mohammed Zahir, chief of the Kabul Criminal Investigation Department, gave the death toll and said more than 100 people were wounded.
Mohammad Bakir Shaikzada, the top Shiite cleric in Kabul, said he could not remember a similar attack having taken place on such a scale.
"This is a crime against Muslims during the holy day of Ashoura. We Muslims will never forget these attacks. It is the enemy of the Muslims who are carrying them out," he said, declining to place blame.
NPR reported the Taliban issued a denial though I can find no reference to it as of this time. But of course the Taliban mouthpieces in Pakistan would say this. They can hardly claim cold blooded murder although the attacks bear all the hallmarks of their activity.
There was also an explosion yesterday targeting Shia Muslims in Karachi Pakistan. So its very clear who the enemy of Muslims in Afghanistan is.
My sources report that the death toll is now around 60 with 100 to 200 injured.
Video below the fold.
Update: The Taliban say, "Yes, we will reject it." Which translated means lie.
Ironically when the bomb goes off someone calls for Jesus. Yes he is Lord!
Guy Who Ran Over Terrorist w/ Car Gets Community Service
I'd say give the guy a medal, but the terrorist in question was already in custody when he decided to run the guy over. So, community service seems reasonable. It's one of those wink-wink, nudge-nudge kinds of sentences I can live with.
Personally, I'd be willing to pay a lot more than a few hours of my time picking up trash for the privilege of running over a terrorist:
The Jerusalem District Court sentenced David Mizrachi of Kiryat Arba to three months' community service for running over a terrorist who stabbed his wife. Mizrachi, 57, was convicted in June of serious assault as part of a plea bargain, and the sentence was handed down Tuesday.....Here's video of him running the assailant over. The magic starts to happen about 55 seconds in.
According to the charge sheet, at a certain point Mizrachi arrived, got into his car and drove toward Maswada. He asked the soldiers – "Is that the terrorist?" – and they answered in the affirmative. He then drove back and forth over him until the soldiers forced him to stop.

#OccupyBaltimore Protester Stabs Another Over Cat
This is why I never took my cat to a Tea Party.
BALTIMORE (AP) — Baltimore police say a woman has been charged with assault in a stabbing at the Occupy Baltimore site.
Officers say Desiree Nicholson, 23, of Halethorpe has been charged with assault in the incident early Sunday at the encampment at the Inner Harbor. She is being held on $75,000 bond.
According to a police report, the unidentified victim says she and Nicholson had gotten into an argument “because [Nicholson] was not taking care of her cat.” (Source)
Apparently, the cat was occupying a prime spot at #Occupy Baltimore. It was an area relatively free of
shit feces and the cat just didn't want to give it up. Here's a video of the cat taken earlier in the day:
Police say around 11:30 p.m. Friday, Anthony Miranda, 24, walked up to a car parked at 55th Street and Kenneth Avenue, just a few blocks from Midway International Airport.
Miranda asked the driver for a lighter, and the driver said he didn’t have one. Then Miranda pulled a handgun and demanded that the driver hand over his money, police said.
Even after the driver complied and gave up some money, Miranda ordered him out of his car, police said.
At some point, Miranda’s attention was diverted and the victim was able to grab control of the gun and the two wrestled.
During the fight, Miranda accidentally discharged his own gun, shooting himself in the ankle, police said.
The victim — who told police he is a martial arts expert and ultimate fighter — was able to pin Miranda down until police arrived.
Police arrived to find Miranda with a face full of lacerations and two black eyes. He was taken to Holy Cross Hospital for treatment, police said.
Q: Who was the last person to actually cut government?

Forget the Terrorists Abroad, Time to Target the Ones Right Here
A great essay by Steve Emerson on why it's the domestic terrorists we have to worry about:
Those international efforts seem to be working, the story indicates. If that’s the case, it is time to consider a third program aimed at undercutting domestic radicalization. But instead, authorities are ignoring a major threat that leads to terrorism right here in our backyard. They are not doing enough to sideline Islamist groups like the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and others who propagate the false “war on Islam” narrative.The other narrative that at least CAIR has been pushing for the past 6 months is that any Islamist arrested before they actually detonated a bomb is evidence of an Islamophobic witch hunt by the FBI and other law enforcement agencies.
Apparently, it's not enough to try to kill people.
Good luck to the posse on the Hill tomorrow!
Images: Nude Women in Gaza!
Nude women on the beaches of Gaza. Say it isn't so!
Oh, but it is my friends. It is.
Brian of London "found" an old issue of the British edition of Penthouse magazine featuring full nudity on the then "occupied" shores of the Gaza strip:
We all know that the Gaza Strip today, under the strict oversight of Hamas is a Sharia compliant fun land of happy free women hiding under burkahs and veils.Head on over for the censored PG version with conveniently placed logos at Israellycool.
But can you imagine a time, not so long ago, when evil, oppressive Israeli military forces commanded that British gentleman’s magazines must be able to shoot nude pictorials on the beaches! The indignity, the offence, the affront to feminist sensibilities. How could those evil Zionist pigs get away with freedoms like that?
But using the vast resources of The Jawa Report I, Ronin, have done the "hard work" of locating said Penthouse magazine. And by that I mean I went through Vinnie's stash of vintage hardcore Palestinian porn.
So, without further ado, and totally without Rusty's permission, I present to you the Not Safe For Work version of Gaza Strips!
(Avert your eyes!!!!)
Thanks to Brian of London. We still miss your podcast man!
Also, this is totally the real Ronin. Not just some sockpuppet for, say, Rsluty.
Serious Questin about the Eurozone?
As a regular traveler to the Eurozone, I keep a fairly close on on the Euro to Dollar exchange rate. Now, I also minored in economics with substantial work in the field at the graduate level.
What I'm having a hard time figuring out is this: if the Eurozone is about to fall apart and the Euro about to collapse, then why hasn't the spot exchange rate changed drastically over the past few months?
This is a real question. I'm totally mystified.
Shouldn't lack of confidence in the Euro push people into other currencies in droves? I mean, even if it's at the margins, say with a core of Europe on the Euro and the periphery out, shouldn't people be lining up to sell Euros in exchange for something -- anything -- else?
Any one out there have a reasonable explanation for this? Or is the Eurocatastrophe talk just a bunch of alarmist hype?
Just When You Thought Soccer Couldn't Get More Boring, Chechen Terrorists Release 17 Min. Home Video Playing Soccer in Snow
Seriously, WTF were the Chechen terrorists thinking when they released this 17 minute long video of themselves playing darts and then soccer in the snow? Really, you guys have gone from beheading videos to .... this?
Also, given that you're all wearing the same white winter cammo, how do you split up the teams? Beards vs. no beards? "Catchers" vs. "pitchers"? Piss stained cammos vs. feces stained cammos?
And, what is the point? If the point is to bore us into submission let me be the first to welcome our new Islamist masters!
Taliban Militants Killed in Major City Nowhere Near "Tribal" Regions
Given that Osama bin Laden was found in a large house located near the Pakistani equivalent of West Point and not in a cave, I think it will come as no surprise to you that groups very much related to the Taliban are operating in and around Pakistan's major cities:
Three Taliban militants, including a Commander of Punjabi Mujahideen, were killed in alleged police operation in Korangi area of Karachi on Monday night.The problem with Pakistan is Pakistan itself. It's a country based on the theory that Muslims in India are a separate nation than Hindus.
Karachi police claimed that the accused were kidnappers of local businessmen.
According to police sources, leader of kidnappers was Ameer (Commander) of Punjabi Mujahideen Shahid Khan. The identity of the other two is yet to be ascertained. The bodies have been shifted to the Jinnah Hospital.
How do you convince an entire nation to moderate their beliefs when the foundation of that country rests on a notion of religion-based nationality which is so incompatible with modernity? That circle simply cannot be squared.

A Pakistani actress who posed in the nude for an Indian magazine with the initials of Pakistan's feared and powerful intelligence agency on her arm has triggered fury across this conservative nation.
Conservative cleric Maulana Abdul Qawi declared on Aaj TV on Saturday that her latest venture into controversy was a "shame for all Muslims."
Muslim Murders Christian Girl in Pakistan
Another Christian in Pakistan has been murdered, and the local Catholic Church is calling her a “martyr of the faith.”Our friends the Pakistanis.
The 18-year-old Amariah Masih (also reported as Mariah Manisha), a Catholic girl from the village of Tehsil Samundari, near Faisalabad, in Punjab province, was shot dead on November 27, after putting up resistance when a Muslim man abducted her with the intent to rape her. Fr. Khalid Rashid Asi, General Vicar of the Catholic diocese of Faisalabad told Fides, the Catholic news agency, that “cases like these occur daily in Punjab. It is very sad; Christians, often girls, are helpless victims.”
The girl’s mother, Razia Bibi, 50, told the Catholic media outlet AsiaNews that she and her daughter were riding on a motorbike on their way to pick up drinking water, which is not available in their village, when a man seized the motorbike, grabbed the young woman, and tried to drag her away at gunpoint. As she tried to pull away, the man opened fire, killing her instantly. According to AsiaNews, the 28-year-old Muslim Arif Gujjar, the son of a wealthy local landowner, is in police custody for questioning for the murder of Amariah.
Amariah’s funeral was presided over by Fr. Zafal Iqbal, who said to Fides: “She is a martyr. . . . The girl resisted, she did not want to convert to Islam and she did not marry the man, who killed her for this.” He explained to AsiaNews: “Wealthy and influential landowners often take aim at those who are marginalized and vulnerable, for their dirty interests.” In Pakistan, a rape victim is often imprisoned for unlawful sex and released on the condition that she marry her rapist. Because, under sharia, a Muslim cannot be married to a Christian, the women in such cases are also forced to convert to Islam. In its sharia courts, the testimony of a Christian is worth less than that of a Muslim, and a Christian woman’s is worth less yet. The whole system is rigged against the Christian woman.
More information on Amariah can be found on the website of the Permanent Mission of the Holy.
Meanwhile, Ruqqiya Bibi, a Christian woman, was sentenced in Pakistan in late October to a 25-year prison term for blasphemy on accusations that she defiled a Koran after handling it with unclean hands. Mrs. Bibi is not to be confused with Asia Bibi, a Christian mother of five who was convicted of blasphemy following a dispute with other Muslim women with whom she had been working as a field hand, and who remains imprisoned after being sentenced to death a year ago.
Pakistan’s minister of minority affairs, Shahbaz Bhatti, also a Catholic, was murdered earlier this year, as was Punjab governor Salman Taseer, a Muslim, for calling for the repeal of the nation’s blasphemy law. Pakistan’s harsh blasphemy law is notoriously vague and ever expanding to include new applications.
There is a special place in heaven for Amariah Masih, and a special place in hell for Arif Gujjar.
Sweden Grants Radical Muslims Asylum
Rejects Afghan Khalid Saheed
Our good friend Phyllis Chesler is writing on his behalf.
Letter To The Government of Sweden and Migration Board:Please send this on to your Senators, elected representatives and the President.
I am writing to you on behalf of Khalid Saeed’s petition to remain in Sweden, a petition which you have denied. I implore you to revisit his case.
His life—and Sweden’s reputation for fairness and morality are both at stake.
Khalid Saeed and his family have been living in Sweden since 2009. Saeed joined the 5% of the Swedish population who are Muslims. However, unlike Muslims who have rioted and/or who have refused to assimilate in Sweden, Khalid is a pro-Western apostate.
This is precisely why he fled Pakistan. Apostasy is a capital crime in Islam, and so is any preference shown to Western ways of thought.
Khalid Saeed was a car dealer in Islamabad, Pakistan. He is married and has three children. Once he made his views known, he was threatened. He fled. In his own words, he claims:
“I have never worshipped Allah nor do I or my wife, Asia, believe in Islam as the only truth for mankind. I have distanced myself from Islam years ago. That is my curse. My wife, the mother to our children, agrees. She will not see her daughter brought up in a society where women are only half humans and neither will I.
"As parents we also do not want to stand (helpless) on the side line and watch our two lovely and open-minded boys being forced into any kind of holy jihad group or society whose only objective is to oppress, threaten, and intimidate others to blindly follow the pitiless words of the profane muslim prophet Mohammad and his followers’ medieval Islamic sharia laws.”
Anyone who sounds like this in Pakistan, or in any Pakistani Muslim community in the world is a dead man.
And yet, you have refused him asylum in Sweden. I strongly disagree with your ruling on his application for asylum.
I assume you are familiar with the fate of apostates: Muslims who convert to Christianity or who describe themselves as “humanists” or “secularists,” or who believe in freedom of religion.
Sweden’s own 2010 Report on Human Rights in Pakistan confirms that religious minorities are severely persecuted in Pakistan as are any people who are in favor of free speech, academic freedom, and independent thought. For example, the governor of the Punjab (in Pakistan) was assassinated when he wanted to pursue reforms against blasphemy laws.
The International Humanist and Ethical Union, which was founded in Amsterdam, spent years campaigning for the life of physician and human rights activist Dr. Younus Sheikh who languished on Death Row in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
We know that many Muslims are not friendly toward any infidel religion, including Christians, Hindus, Jews, Buddhists, etc. Christians have been—and still are—being savagely persecuted in Muslim lands. I and many others have written about this often. Author and apostate Nonie Darwish and ex-Muslim secularist Ibn Warraq have both spoken out about this burning issue.
Christians are being savagely persecuted in Egypt and all across the Middle East and Islamic world.
In Pakistan, Christians have literally been crucified, teenaged Christian girls have been kidnapped, raped, then forced to marry their rapists and convert to Islam.
Saudi Arabia, Iran, Afghanistan, do not allow Christians, Jews, or other “infidels” to pray openly or to build any or new houses of worship.
The Arab Muslim Middle East is almost completely “Judenrein,” (free of Jews) since more than 800,000 Arab Jews were exiled or forced to flee their countries between 1948-1968.
In 2010, in Pakistan, a Muslim mob attacked a Christian man and slaughtered him with pick-axes for refusing to convert to Islam.
According to Mina Nevisa, an Iranian Muslim convert to Christianity who wrote a book about her experiences, both she and her female cousin were attending an underground church in Teheran. Nevis fled Iran together with her husband. Her cousin was not so lucky. “She was arrested on charges of Apostasy and taken to Evin prison, where she was raped, tortured, and then killed by a firing squad. The pastor was also killed.”
The situation for Muslim apostates in Europe is also perilous. High profile apostates, such as Egyptian-Italian Magdi Christiano Allam, who was converted to Catholicism by the Pope, lives with six round-the-clock bodyguards. Aayan Hirsi Ali, the Somali-Dutch-American apostate-secularist, also requires a full time security detail. People who do not have public profiles, who are not academics, intellectuals, politicians, or public speakers, also face similar problems.
In 2001, “Sabatina James” (a pseudonym) fled from Austria to Germany and went into hiding to escape being honor-murdered by her family after she converted from Islam to Christianity. Her family had immigrated from Pakistan.
“Sabatina’s” troubles began when she was 15 years old. Because she dared to wear lipstick and blue jeans, she was mercilessly beaten. When she rejected marriage to a cousin, “Sabatina” was sent to a Qur’anic school in Lahore, where she was repeatedly flogged. She finally agreed to the marriage—but only in order to be able to return to Austria. Then, when she was 19 years old, she fled.
In 2009, Iraqi-born Vian Bakir Fatah was stabbed to death by her Iraqi ex-husband in Norway. She had converted to Christianity and had a new boyfriend. Her ex-husband murdered her in the presence of their four children.
In the past, Sweden has presumably been at the forefront of human rights activism and legislation. Now, in this case, it seems that Sweden has failed its own stated ideals.
Given the information that I and others are providing, I strongly urge you to reconsider Khalid Saeed’s case. If not, his blood, and the blood of his wife and children will be on Swedish hands.
Signed: Professor Phyllis Chesler
If the country of Sweden doesn't do the right thing then the least we can do is offer Khalid Saheed a place here where he can be free. Damn crying shame we let Afghanistan keep this sixth century Sharia BS in its constitution to start with.
Also please support Phyllis' writing here.
Taliban's IED Kills Woman and Four Children
A minibus full of Afghan civilians struck a roadside bomb while driving down a road in southern Afghanistan on Monday, setting off an explosion that killed five passengers.The Taliban fight like women. Planting bombs that maim Muslims rather than fight.
One woman and four children died and another six passengers were wounded, said Fareed Ayal, a spokesman for the Uruzgan provincial police.
Ayal said the vehicle had just left the main market area in Chor district when it hit the buried explosive. He said two brothers and their families were traveling in the minibus.
Civilians are regularly victims of bombs laid by insurgents to target Afghan or international forces.

California Hockey Mom and Puck Boys
(Orange County, California) This week, 44-year-old hockey mom Kathia Maria Davis appeared in court to answer charges she liquored up and sexually assaulted her son's hockey teammates, aged 13 and 16.
Davis pleaded not guilty.
Prosecutors say Kathia Maria Davis served her two victims alcohol and then engaged them in sex acts, in some cases with her children still in the house.A pre-trial hearing is scheduled for early January. Davis is free on $100,000 bail.[more….]
The two boys – one 13 years old at the time, one 16 – played hockey with her son on the Beach City Lightning youth team, authorities said.
(Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana) Unrelated but also occurring this week, a 28-year-old Bible school teacher, Heather N. Daughdrill, was accused of multiple sex crimes and kidnapping involving a 13-year-old boy.
The investigation revealed Daughdrill would engage in inappropriate sexual contact with the boy after picking him up from school without the parents' knowledge.Daughdrill was booked into custody with bond set at $47,000.
Religion of Peace Influence Increases in UK
UK police recorded at least 2,823 so-called honour attacks last year, figures from 39 out of 52 forces show.Obviously this is simply a cultural and political shift in the UK. To blame this on some sort of so called Islamism is both racist and insensitive.
A freedom of information request by the Iranian and Kurdish Women's Rights Organisation (Ikwro) revealed that nearly 500 of these were in London.
Among the 12 forces also able to provide figures from 2009, there was an overall 47% rise in such incidents.
Honour attacks are punishments on people, usually women, for acts deemed to have brought shame on their family.
Such attacks can include acid attacks, abduction, mutilations, beatings and in some cases, murder.
Ikwro said its research, carried out between July and November, is the best national estimate so far of the extent of honour violence in Britain, although the charity says the figures do not give the full picture.
Its part of Muslims' religion to abuse, terrorize and murder women who step out of line. Infidel criticism is racist and insensitive to their religious freedom.
A New York teacher shatters the innocent imagination of young children:
A sourpuss teacher in Rockland County ruined Christmas for a class full of second-graders this week, when she told them that there is no Santa Claus during a lesson about the North Pole.
The evil educator even told the youngsters — mostly 7- and 8-year-olds — that the presents under their trees were put out by their parents, and not St. Nick.
I am just so angry that this teacher would so callously destroy childhood memories, so below the fold, I'm posting several images to forever immortalize that cheerful innocence stolen from these beautiful children.
Sandcrawler PSA: Iranian Drone Probably Story BS
The problem is that the Iranian press is in full wartime propaganda mode and are proven liars.
I'm not sure why the American press is so quick to push up this story unless they have more proof?
Also I'm wondering about the claims of little damage? Maybe it will er uh go off laster?
While we wait we can also relearn American History here courtesy of the Iranians.
Update: Well whaddya know...
WASHINGTON—Iran said on Sunday that it shot down a U.S. stealth drone near the country's eastern border, but U.S. officials in Afghanistan said the craft could instead be an unmanned reconnaissance plane that veered off course and crashed last week.
Iran's official Islamic Republic News Agency quoted a military official who said Tehran had downed an RQ-170 Sentinel, the U.S. Air Force's stealth drone.
U.S. and NATO officials wouldn't say what kind of American drone had disappeared, but U.S. officials said there was no indication that the aircraft had been shot down by the Iranians. One American official said the drone likely suffered from a mechanical failure.
American officials said they believe that after the remote pilots lost control of the aircraft, the drone crashed in an unknown location.
On Sunday afternoon, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization's command in Afghanistan said the Iranians may have been referring to an unmanned craft lost while flying a mission over western Afghanistan "late last week."
"The operators of the UAV lost control of the aircraft and had been working to determine its status," said the statement released by NATO's International Security Assistance Force.
Sunday Morning War Porn
Once you've read the Sunday Morning Sermon, it's time for a little fun.
After a hard day of beating your wife, killing infidels, and shagging a few goats, you find a nice quiet place to sit back, relax, and... what's that buzzing sound?
Sunday Morning Sermon
We do not fight for land. We are loyal to an ideal - an ideal of liberty wherever man lives. We do not guard territory, bleed for a piece of dirt. We don't fight because we love violence. We fight for our freedom as individuals to live our own lives, to pursue our own survival, our own happiness.
Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self defense, because you think it's a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
Evil grants no mercy, and to attempt to appease it is nothing more than a piecemeal surrender to it. Surrender to evil is slavery at best, death at worst. Thus your unconditional rejection of violence is really nothing more than embracing death as preferable to life.
You will achieve what you embrace.
The right, the absolute necessity, of vengeance against anyone who initiates force against you is fundamental to survival. The morality of a people's self-defense is in it's defense of each individual's right to life. It's an intolerance to violence made real by an unwavering willingness to crush any who would launch violence against you. The unconditional determination to destroy any who would initiate force against you is an exaltation of the value of life. Refusing to surrender your life to any thug or tyrant who lays claim to it is in fact embracing life itself.
If you are unwilling to defend your right to your own lives, then you are merely like mice trying to argue with owls. You think their ways are wrong. They think you are dinner.
If, hoping to appease it, you willingly compromise with unrepentant evil, you only allow such evil to sink it's fangs into you; from that day on its venom will course through your veins until it finally kills you.
Compromising with murderers grants them moral equivalence where none can rightly exist. Moral equivalence says that you are no better than they; therefore their belief - that they should be able to torture, rape, or murder you - is just as morally valid as your view - that you have the right to live free of their violence. Moral compromise rejects the concept of right and wrong. It says that everyone is equal, all desires are equally valid, all action is equally valid, so everyone should compromise to get along.
Where could you compromise with those who torture, rape and murder people? In the number of days a week you will be tortured? In the number of men to be allowed to rape your loved ones? In how many of your family are to be murdered?
No moral equivalence exists in that situation, nor can it exist, so there can be no compromise, only suicide.
To even suggest compromise can exist with such men is to sanction murder.
Many teach that saying someone is evil is prejudiced thinking. It's a way of belittling someone already in pain for some reason. Such people must be embraced and taught to shed their fears of their fellow man and then they will not strike out in violent ways.
They are dangerous to everyone because they embrace evil with their teachings. In so doing, in trying to be kind, to be unselfish, in trying to be nonjudgmental, you allow evil to become far more powerful than it otherwise would. you refuse to see evil, and so you welcome it among you. You allow it to exist. You give it power over you. You are a people who have welcomed death and refused to denounce it.
You are an empire naked to the shadow of evil.
These people think of themselves as enlightened, as above violence. They are not enlightened; they are merely slaves awaiting a master, victims awaiting killers.

Sex at Saudi Police Headquarters
(Riyadh, Saudi Arabia) It appears that four people conspired to intentionally piss off the Saudi Police.
Three Saudi men parked their car close to the headquarters of the Gulf Kingdom’s feared religious police late night, got out and started having sex with a woman accompanying them just in front of the massive police signboard.Police apprehended two of the men in a few hours. Search continues for the other man and the girl.
They were filming themselves with the aim publicising the shot to defame the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and Prevention of Vice, the most influential law enforcement authority in the Muslim nation.
The three were half way through their operation when one of them noticed the security camera next to the signboard in the capital Riyadh. They stopped filming, headed for the camera and smashed it before fleeing the scene.
In the morning, Commission members going to their offices were surprised to notice that the security camera was badly damaged.
But examination later showed the film inside was intact and it contained clear shots of the three men while having sex with the girl.
"My Name Is Bosch And I’m A Recovering Muslim."
Most of you know Bosch Fawstin. He created a comic anti-Jihad superhero named "The Pigman."
The Muslim world is where the true meaning of Islam can be found in practice. Islam – not any alleged deviant form of it – means misogyny, censorship, anti-Semitism, homophobia, wife-beatings, beheadings, honor killings, pedophilia/“child marriages”, murdering infidels, etc. This is evil, and Islam sanctions every bit of it, but we’ve been told that we must respect “one of the world’s great religions” because it’s a religion. Following 9/11, the only thing George W. Bush knew about Islam was that it was a religion, and that apparently was a good enough reason for him to exonerate it as he did. And his advisor on Islam, David Forte, told Bush exactly what he wanted to hear, that “Nothing this evil could come from religion.” But 9/11 did come from a religion. Whatever else 9/11 was, it was an act of faith.
And Bush saying “Islam is peace” shortly after 9/11 gave the enemy a gift they couldn’t have foreseen. Here was the one man who was charged to defend America from their attack and here he was defending the very ideology that motivated the attackers. Honesty is the best policy in general, and when it comes to war, it’s a moral imperative to find out the truth, to tell the truth and to act on the truth, no matter what sacred cow is killed in the process. And so a big part of why nearly 3,000 victims of jihad on 9/11 haven’t been avenged is because of respect for religion, even for a religion that calls for our destruction.
I highly recommend reading the whole thing.
This article brings another point to mind. It is the Islamic ideology we should oppose, not Muslims themselves. Many Islamic apostates risk their lives to expose the nature of Islam as ones who once followed the religion. There are many outstanding, honorable people fighting this ideology using their own experiences as potent weapons. Bosche, Ali Sina, Wafa Sultan, Ibn Warraq, Nonie Darwish, and my dear friend IQ al Rassooli are just a few.
If we alienate Muslims, we alienate our most effective warriors against Islamic terrorism.
...Absolutely SHOCKING, that these people actually have the right to vote.
And we wonder how someone as incompetent as Obama manages to get elected? It's because of idiots like Rod Hiderman and truthers.

Napolitano: Lone Wolf Terror Threat Increasing
If Janet Napolitano, chief incompetent at Homeland Insecurity, says the threat is real and growing then it's time for the Democrats in Congress to grow up and stop crying Islamophobia whenever a Republican makes exactly the same point:
Noting current threats to the United States, [Napolitano] singled out al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula and “the growth of the lone wolf,” a single attacker not part of a larger conspiracy or network.The second group that needs to grow up are those Muslims that agree with CAIR that the U.S. government is out to get them. These infantile paranoids are in such deep denial that they refuse to see the obvious: that there really are radicals in their midsts who want to do us harm.
Deal with it.
VA Man to Plead Guilty to Helping Terrorists on YouTube
A screenshot from Jubair Ahmad's YouTube account shows a comment left by al Qaeda's Samir Khan using his Furasani Media avatar
Make videos for terrorists and then post them to YouTube, go to jail .... if you get caught. Jubair Ahmad got caught:
A Virginia man is expected to enter a plea bargain on charges he helped produce an Internet video for a Pakistani terrorist group.....Other jihadis on YouTube need to sit up and take notice: we own you.
Prosecutors allege Jubair produced and uploaded a propaganda video to YouTube last year on behalf of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant Pakistani group the U.S. has designated a terrorist group since 2001.

9 Men Planning to Bomb Parliament Had Copies of al Qaeda's "Inspire" Magazine
An image from Inspire magazine
The nine men accused of conspiring to bomb, among other targets, the British Parliament have pleaded not guilty to the plot. Look what magazine inspired the plot (pun intended):
Nine men have denied plotting to launch bomb attacks on landmarks including Britain’s Parliament and busy shopping areas....That would be the magazine published by our old nemesis, Charlotte's own Samir Khan, recently teets up. The guy "civil libertarians" and some Muslims are calling an "innocent civilian" "executed" by our own government.
Prosecutors accuse the men of agreeing on targets, discussing materials and methods, carrying out reconnaissance, attending operational meetings and downloading and researching files “containing practical instruction for a terrorist attack.”
Several also are accused of having copies of the al-Qaida magazine Inspire.

Saudi Study: Driving Turns Gentle Virgins Into Raging Whores
Because that stick shift is just too tantalizingly close...
The shocking results of a so-called "scientific" report written by scholars of the Majlis al-Ifta' al-A'ala, Saudi Arabia's highest religious council, in collaboration with a former King Fahd University professor said allowing Saudi women to drive would lead to a scarcity of virgins and cause more Saudis - both men and women - turn to homosexuality and pornography.[...]
The scholars claimed that within ten years of lifting the ban, there would be "no more virgins" in the Wahhabite kingdom.
Before you dismiss the study as utter, chauvinistic rubbish, you should be aware of this very scientific evidence which apparently proves the point:
In the report, Professor Kamal Subhi exemplified the point by describing what he experienced while sitting in a coffee shop in an unnamed Arab state.
"All the women were looking at me," he wrote. "One made a gesture that made it clear she was available... this is what happens when women are allowed to drive," he concluded.
I was once sitting at my computer desk reading blogs online. There was a study about benefits of keeping women subjugated and the dangers of giving them even the slightest amount of freedom. This is what happens when primitive neanderthals are allowed to post on the internet.
Update: Before you fellas race out to make whores of those sweet virgins you've been wanting to date, there's a catch (always is). You should read Howie's post first.
Islamic Science! Letting Women Drive Makes You Gay
Repealing a ban on women drivers in Saudi Arabia would result in ‘no more virgins’, the country’s religious council has warned.Whereas not letting women drive promotes good relations between young men and their goats.
A ‘scientific’ report claims relaxing the ban would also see more Saudis - both men and women - turn to homosexuality and pornography.
The startling conclusions were drawn by Muslim scholars at the Majlis al-Ifta’ al-A’ala, Saudi Arabia’s highest religious council, working in conjunction with Kamal Subhi, a former professor at the King Fahd University.
The study was based on an Imam sitting in a Coffee shop with a bunch of slutty Muslimas in an unnamed Arab state.
The science is settled!
I wonder how it helps the glory of Islam when the whole f*cking world is laughing its ass off?
Awesome! Abu Izzadeen Arrested Yet Again
British police say 22 people have been arrested outside of the US embassy in London during a protest over the use of military drones in Pakistan.The protest was actually against the strike on Samir Khan and Anwar al-Awaki. The brothers at Ansar Enlgish forum are asking we make Du'ah for Abu Izzadeen and his Akhi from Islam4UK.
Scotland Yard confirmed the arrests on Friday at the demonstration organised by a group calling itself United Ummah.
The demonstration was advertised as a gathering that would include Friday prayers outside of the US embassy to draw attention to "the murder of Muslims with drones".

Sekrit Santa Strikes Again
A businessman who identified himself only as “Secret Santa” brought Christmas cheer to Reading, Pa., one $100 bill at a time.He's probably one of those pesky 1%ers.
The secret Santa explained that helping others helped him.
“I get more out of it than they do,” he said. “I’ve had people say, you know, ‘You saved my life. I was going to commit suicide.’ I’ve had people say, ‘I couldn’t pay my heat. … I hadn’t eaten in days,’” he said.
One woman off-camera could be heard saying, “Oh, my God, who is he? Who is he?”
Another woman, in tears after receiving her gift, replied: “What an amazing man.”
Jubair Ahmad To Plead Guilty to Material Support of Terrorist Group Lashkar-e-Taiba
Uploading Propaganda to Youtube
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — A Virginia man is expected to enter a plea bargain on charges he helped produce an Internet video for a Pakistani terrorist group.So you would that Youtube is now aware that LeT and its front Jamat ud Dawa are designated terrorist groups and that propaganda uploaded in support of these should be removed and and the users suspended.
Twenty-four-year-old Jubair Ahmad of Woodbridge, Va., has been jailed since his September arrest. A plea hearing has been scheduled for Friday in federal court in Alexandria.
Prosecutors allege Jubair produced and uploaded a propaganda video to YouTube last year on behalf of Lashkar-e-Taiba, a militant Pakistani group that the U.S. has designated as a terrorist group since 2001.
Court documents show that Ahmad, who came to the U.S. from Pakistan as a 19-year-old, was the subject of a two-year FBI investigation. An affidavit states he received training from Lashkar while living in Pakistan.
I guess not.
The Super Ultra-Moderate Muslim Brotherhood
The Muslim Brotherhood decision to run in the parliamentary elections under the banner of “Freedom and Justice” does not necessarily mean that the organization has changed its ideology.And who are the foreign Imperialists? Why Israel of course?
Its credo was and remains: “Allah is our objective, the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader, jihad is our way and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.”
The organization believes the Quran and Sharia law (the “Justice” part of “Freedom and Justice”) should be the basis for any Islamic government; that all Muslims should be unified under a Caliphate, and that its principles include “liberating Arabs and Muslims from foreign imperialism.”
he US Administration, which has determined that the Muslim Brotherhood is probably not that bad after all, is most likely unaware of what happened in Cairo last week, when thousands of the organization’s supporters chanted “death to the Jews” and vowed to wage jihad [holy war] against Israel.Ayman al-Zawahiri joined the Muslim Brother hood when he came of age at 14.
The Muslim brotherhood is only moderate in the sense that its better to be shot in the back of the head than to have your head sawed slowly off with a dull knife.
But really there's no need to freak out, because you don't understand this obvious cultural and political shift to these so called Islamists.
Hat Tip: Creeping Sharia.
TUNIS - A group of Salafists disrupted classes on Monday at a university west of the capital Tunis, demanding a stop to mixed-sex classes and for female students to wear full face veils, officials said.
The mob of Salafists also took hostage the dean of the University of Letters, Arts, and Humanities of Manouba along with several other professors.
One of the professors who witnessed the protest said the group threatened him and verbally abused other professors. The professor called on the protection of the army, but no security forces had yet been confirmed arrived.

Image Shows Leader of Iranian Basij at Brit Embassy Riot
Here's an image from the Arabic version of al Arabiya showing Redah Naqdi (transliteration), the leader of the Basij Forces. The implication being that the illegal storming of the British embassy was done under the direct orders of Ayatollah Khameini.
Thanks to Ferd.
UPDATE: Oops, it looks like the name of the guys is Karim Jalali, a Quds Force Officer. At least that's what other publications are saying.
Which is worse, given that the Quds Force works for the Iranian government in a direct capacity while the Basij are a "militia" that only work for the government in an indirect capacity.

Al Qaeda Holding American Civilian Hostage
Unfortunately, I know of no instance where al Qaeda has voluntarily freed a hostage. Other radical Islamists have, but not al Qaeda. All of them have been murdered in cold blood by the group:
Al Qaeda claimed responsibility Thursday for the kidnapping of a 70-year-old American aid worker in Pakistan in August, and issued a series of demands for his release.Like all of al Qaeda's demands, Zawahiri knows that we won't accept them. So, the fate of Warren Weinstein seems preordained from the begining.
In a video message posted on militant websites, Al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahri said Warren Weinstein would be released if the United States stopped airstrikes in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. He also demanded the release of all Al Qaeda and Taliban suspects around the world.
We can only hope that our special forces find him sooner rather than later.

California Woman Pleas Guilty to Helping Somali al Qaeda Affiliate
She faces up to 15 years for conspiring with other Somali immigrants to aid the al Qaeda linked al Shabaab group:
A Somali immigrant living in California pleaded guilty Thursday in federal court to providing money and personnel to Somalia's Al-Shebab militants.Note to immigrants: when you come here, respect our law. Yes, there are things worse than deportation that can happen to you.
Nima Yusuf, 25, admitted she had entered into an agreement with four other Somali immigrants to provide material support to the Shebab, an Al-Qaeda linked group that controls much of central and southern Somalia.
She also admitted to aiding the violent extremist group despite knowing that the United States has designated the Shebab as a foreign terrorist organization and that providing money or other material support to it is illegal, the US Justice Department said in a statement.

Afghanistan: Ass Freakin Backwards
A little extra jail time for not reporting your rape, which you will go to jail for, quick enough.
Gulnaz had been sentenced to prison for 12 years after she reported that her cousin's husband had raped her two years ago.
Karzai said he's asked the justice minister to meet with the woman and her rapist to find out whether she wants to marry him and legitimize her daughter.
Last week, a spokesman for the attorney general said while the original sentence for adultery was reduced, she had failed to report her rape quickly enough and would have to serve some time in prison for that offense.
Non-Sarcastic Good News: 21 Turks Killed in Afghanistan
Turkey has arrested dozens and dozens of al Qaeda sympathizers in the last few years. But is it doing anything to stop the flow of Turks into the war zone to fight for the Taliban or other violent Islamists? My guess is the answer is no:
A jihadist media outlet that supports Turkish terrorists fighting along the Afghan-Pakistan border said that 21 of its fighters were killed in a US airstrike in Afghanistan, while another fighter was killed in a drone strike in North Waziristan, Pakistan. All of the Turkish fighters who were killed were linked to the Haqqani Network.
Good News: All Our Alarmist & Hyperbole Filled Predictions About Egypt Pretty Much Dead On
Muslim Brotherhood set to win electons: check
Strong showing for parties that make the Muslim Brotherhood look like "moderates": check
Egypt turning from a secular fascist country to an even more repressive religiously fascist country: check
So, where am I off here?
The party formed by the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s mainstream Islamist group, appeared to have taken about 40 percent of the vote, as expected. But a big surprise was the strong showing of ultraconservative Islamists, called Salafis, many of whom see most popular entertainment as sinful and reject women’s participation in voting or public life.Apparently Egyptians want to be more oppressed, not less.
Analysts in the state-run news media said early returns indicated that Salafi groups could take as much as a quarter of the vote, giving the two groups of Islamists combined control of nearly 65 percent of the parliamentary seats.
Good News: Quds Force Agent Involved in Murder of US Troops Will Probably Walk
I see this case as revealing a number of problems in the way we fought in Iraq, our legal rules, and in our soon to be hasty exit. For instance, with treating terrorists as "enemy combatants": once the war is over, you have to let them go:
Ali Mussa Daqduq, a Lebanese militant accused of involvement in the murder of several U.S. soldiers in Iraq, has been in U.S. military detention in Iraq since 2007 -- but likely not for much longer.I'm not sure I get how a Lebanese national fighting on behalf of Iran would be considered an "enemy combatant". Wouldn't he be considered an "unlawful combatant"? And if that's the case, then why do we need Iraq's permission to try him as such?
As the last U.S. forces depart Iraq, Daqduq may soon go free without facing trial....
The prospect that Daqduq -- a veteran operative of the Lebanese Hezbollah militia -- may escape U.S. justice....
Daqduq was accused of organizing a kidnapping in the Iraqi city of Karbala in January 2007 that left five U.S. soldiers dead....
But officials identified him as a 24-year veteran of Hezbollah who had commanded a special operations unit and been sent to Iraq to develop "Special Groups" within Shiite militia.
They said he admitted working with the Quds Force, a branch of Iran's Revolutionary Guard....
Daqduq has been held by the U.S. military as an "enemy combatant." Now the withdrawal of U.S. forces is almost complete and he can no longer be held without trial once hostilities are over. But U.S. officials are reluctant to hand over such a high-profile suspect to the Iraqi justice system. Their anxiety is that under pressure from Iran, Iraqi authorities would soon let Daqduq go free.
This seems to me one of the results of turning over these kinds of decisions to the State Department which can be trusted on getting pretty much every decision wrong every time.

Los Angeles Police officers begin the clean up of the Occupy Los Angeles camp at the Los Angeles City Hall, Wednesday, Nov. 30, 2011, in Los Angeles. In a massive show of force, 1,400 police officers, some in riot gear stormed the Occupy Los Angeles camp early Wednesday, driving protesters from the park and arresting more than 200 who defied orders to leave. (AP Photo/Bret Hartman)
The #OccupyLA protesters left so much filth, the LAPD and city sanitation workers had to don hazardous material suits to clean it up:
The reek of urine and unwashed bodies hung over the former Occupy Los Angeles camp Wednesday as masked sanitation workers hauled away 25 tons of debris from the barren lawns around City Hall. [...]
"It's so contaminated, it doesn't even make sense to sort it out," said Jose "Pepe" Garcia, 49, superintendent of the city's north central sanitation district.
A dozen city sanitation workers were suited up in white coveralls, gloves and boots after reports that there might be a lice or flea infestation, Garcia said.
The protesters are the people Obama supports.
Pelosi blesses them.
@AlecBaldwin thinks the protests are "good" and "healthy". Of course, he isn't the one who has to clean up after them.

Where are all NY's Cabs on Friday Afternoon?
It's not just black people who can't get a cab on Fridays in New York --- it's everybody!
If you need to catch a cab you may want to try the Upper West Side, since some who live next to the Islamic Cultural Center on Riverside Drive say their neighborhood is being flooded with parked taxis every week.No, this isn't "Islamic supremacism", it's just one of the drawbacks of multiculturalism. My family and I are Sabbath observers. There was a time when most Christians observed Sunday, the Lord's Day, as a Sabbath. But those days are long gone and if my Sabbath observance inconveniences you I really don't give a crap.
"They are everywhere, hundreds of them. I joke with my doorman every Friday I can't find a cab," said John Hart, who lives across the street in a high-rise building.
"I have to pray," said a cabbie who did not want to give his name," I have no choice but to break the rules."
The difference is I won't take a job that requires me to work on Sunday. I would never tell my boss that I'll come in on Sunday, and then duck out for a few hours for afternoon prayer. That's just dishonest.

"I'm going to need another term to finish the job," [Obama] said.
What job? Destroying America? I think most people, when they read a statement like this, assume a positive goal. But with this Administration, you have to assume a desired negative effect.
More doublespeak from POTUS:
"I try not to pat myself too much on the back, but this administration has done more for the security of the state of Israel than any previous administration," Obama said.
True, the Obama Administration has done more for Israeli security than any previous administration. Unfortunately, it isn't good that has been done.
Arapahoe Sheriff Lodged in Jail Named After Himself For Trading Gay Sex For Meth
Every civil servant wants to experience his or her legacy firsthand--but not the way that onetime Arapahoe Sheriff Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. has. Sullivan, a nationally renowned law enforcement leader, was arrested on drug charges and is now being detained in the Denver area jail that bears his name.The dude is also apparently a Democrat. He was appointed to the National Commission on Crime Prevention and Control by President Clinton.
Sullivan, who in 2001 was named the National Sheriff Association's "Sheriff of the Year," was arrested on suspicion of trafficking methamphetamines.
Local news station CBS4 began an investigation of Sullivan last month on a tip that he had agreed to meet a male informant, providing drugs in exchange for sex. He was subsequently arrested by the South Metro Drug Task Force and is currently being held on a $250,000 bond.
And in an incredible twist of fate, Sullivan now cooling his heels at The Patrick J. Sullivan Jr. Detention Facility, named in his honor.
Shocking News! Iran Releases Basij Who Attacked UK Embassy
TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iran has released 11 hardline protesters detained for storming the British Embassy and diplomatic compounds in Tehran this week, the semi-official Fars news agency said Thursday.I, for one, am totally and utterly shocked to hear this. Why never in a million years.....
Fars said 11 people, described as students, were set free late on Wednesday, a day after they were arrested for storming and ransacking the embassy and British diplomatic compounds in Tehran.
There was no immediate explanation for the release. Under Iranian law, damaging property carries a prison term of up to three years. It could, however, indicate the 11 have high-level protection from circles within the Iranian establishment.
