Australian University Censors Speech Offensive to Islam, Threatens Students
June 3, 2013 - NEW YORK - Australian National University (ANU) administrators have given student board members and authors of the school's newspaper Woroni an ultimatum: retract a recently published infographic satirizing Islam or face disciplinary proceedings that could include expulsion. Not surprisingly, the students responded to the school's threat by removing the image from the Internet, having already published an apology to "any readers who felt victimised, while stressing that the piece was intended to be satirical."If you thought the above couldn't happen here, think again: US Attorney: Anti-Muslim Postings on Social Media May Be a Federal Crime.
The infographic was the fifth in a student-produced series that satirized aspects of different religions, preceded by installments on Catholicism, Scientology, Mormonism, and Judaism. Only the piece on Islam drew university censorship, following a complaint by the International Students Department. According to ANU vice-chancellor Ian Young, the Chancelry (administration) "felt [the piece] actually breached the rules of the university in terms of student conduct and . . . breached the rules of at least the Australian Press Council principles to which Woroni abides." Young denied that the censorship was an attack on freedom of speech and asserted that previous cartoons on other major religions were permissible because they did not attract formal complaints.
The implications of this are troubling: the Chancelry has effectively endorsed a policy of selectively restricting speech deemed offensive to Islam, and Islam alone.

Letting the Wookie Win
If the Star Wars reference isn’t obvious, the point I’m trying to make is that liberal progressives have absolutely no problem trashing Christians in social media on a regular basis because Christians don’t pull arms out of sockets or hack people to death in broad daylight for that matter.READ THE REST
No, it's not an anti-Muslim sentiment. If anything it is a call to treat Muslims like adults. When we practice the not-so-soft bigotry of carving out exceptions for Muslims, we give in to terrorism.
I was in Las Vegas early last month and noticed signs announcing that the Broadway musical "The Book of Mormon"was coming to town. Oddly enough, no one in the Justice Department was looking to prosecute Trey Stone or Matt Parker for violating the "civil rights" of Mormons.
And even more curious, no one has threatened to kill them over the play lampooning Mormonism.

ICRC: So What If We Used Our Funds To Honor Pali Terrorists
Earlier this month, Palestinian Media Watch reported on a ceremony in the Palestinian Authority celebrating the International Red Cross' 150th anniversary. The official PA daily reported that the International Red Cross (ICRC) together with the Palestinian Red Crescent planted 150 trees bearing the names of "veteran prisoners," meaning security prisoners who have been imprisoned for many years.
Following PMW's report, the International Red Cross, in a letter to Weekly Press Pakistan - Canad, denied its involvement in the ceremony:
"Please note that ICRC was not present during the planting of the trees ceremony reported by your website."
However, not only did ICRC not condemn the Palestinian Red Crescent's glorification of terrorists in the ceremony, it chose to justify the use of ICRC money by the Palestinian Red Crescent. The ICRC issued a statement defending their right to use donor money any way they choose, even though the issue being raised was the use of ICRC money for terror glorification:"Over the decades, the ICRC has provided support, including financially, both to the Palestinian Red Crescent Society and to [Israeli] Magen David Adom for their humanitarian programs. It remains the prerogative of the National Society to define its own priorities and activities and to allocate funds accordingly."
The official PA daily wrote that "the International Red Cross and the Palestinian Red Crescent... planted 150 fruit trees that carry the names of the veteran prisoners jailed in the occupation prisons... [during] a ceremony called 'My Honor is My Freedom'... to mark the 150th anniversary of their founding."Previous:
The PA uses the term "veteran prisoners" to refer to those who have been in jail the longest, and in most cases these prisoners are serving life sentences for murder or multiple murders.

Epicenter Of Evil: Anjem Choudary's Web Of HateOmar Bakri Mohammed, London Beheader's Imam
Click to enlarge
I added the last name of the second Woolwich butcher to the above image. His full name is Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale
Via The Sun: Epicentre of evil- Killer is my pupil, says Choudary
HATE cleric Anjem Choudary yesterday admitted the Woolwich butcher was one of his disciples — and praised his “impeccable character”.Until the PC shite stops we will continue to see these Islamic bast*rds continue their jihad on infidels.
Bile-spewing Choudary acknowledged he helped turn Michael Adebolajo to extremism and that the machete monster was only “making his voice heard in blood”.
The preacher — still free as a bird despite brazenly inspiring terrorists for a DECADE — claimed he did not “condone” the attack that left soldier Lee Rigby dead.
Choudary said of Wednesday’s atrocity by Adebolajo and fellow fanatic Michael Oluwatobi Adebowale: “What he did was unusual and it’s not the view I propagate but those views are out there.
“Some members of the Muslim community struggle to express themselves and he is making his voice heard in blood.”
His comments come three months after The Sun secretly filmed Choudary, who is a British citizen, teaching extremists to “rise up” against non-believers.
We caught the father of four, who The Sun revealed has claimed £25,000 a year in welfare, urging fanatics not to ignore “jihad and fighting”, and labelling David Cameron the devil.
It was just the latest example of Choudary being at the centre of terror plots — leading experts to demand why police are guilty of “a gross derogation of duty” by turning a blind eye towards him.
The Sun handed cops a detailed dossier of Choudary’s terrorist training methods after publication of our expose on February 17. We met detectives at their request on March 6 and handed over reams of paperwork and DVDs of secret recordings of the preacher’s rants.
On March 26 Thames Valley Police-based officers announced they would mount no case — saying the material we provided “fell below an evidential threshold”.
Terrorists are not born, they are made....

PC Kills: Jihad Experts Decry White House Terror Training Guidelines
Experts on Islam and terrorism are decrying the Department of Homeland Security’s recently revealed anti-terrorism training guidelines, which pressure cops to ignore Islamic beliefs when investigating terror crimes.Of course this is happening and has been for a long time. Think 'work place violence' instead of domestic terrorism at Ft Hood and Bronco's declaration of dhimmitude at the UN in regards to the Benghazi terror attack:
The Boston bombings demonstrated the impact of such training, Andrew McCarthy, a former New York prosecutor, told The Daily Caller.
“The Boston Marathon was bombed by a jihadist who had been investigated by the FBI … [and was confirmed in 2011 to be] an Islamist, which would have been hard not to do since he does not appear to have made any secret of it,” said McCarthy, who persuaded a New York jury in 1995 to convict “Blind Sheikh” Omar Abdel-Rahman for his use of Islamic teaching to spur jihad attacks, including the 1993 attack against the Twin Towers

International Red Cross Plants Trees To Honor Pali Terrorists
In a ceremony celebrating its 150th anniversary, the International Red Cross together with the Palestinian Red Crescent planted 150 trees bearing the names of "veteran prisoners." The Palestinian Authority uses the term "veteran prisoners" to refer to those who have been in jail the longest, and in most cases are serving life sentences for murder or multiple murders. Giorgio Ferrario, representative of the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies, participated in this ceremony honoring terrorists, which was named "My Honor is My Freedom."Words escape me, oh wait. Did you hear about Newseum wanting to honor two Hamas terrorists, which they called 'journalists', alongside memorializing others such as Daniel Pearl?
Palestinian Media Watch recently reported that Issa Abd Rabbo, who shot and murdered two university students hiking near Jerusalem, was referred to as a "veteran prisoner." Abd Rabbo was recently honored by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas. (See below - names of more murderers serving life sentences referred to by the PA as "veteran prisoners.")
The Palestinian Red Crescent's website writes that its "programs, projects and events" are funded by the International Red Cross:
A Washington D.C.-based journalism museum announced just moments before the start of a memorial service for slain reporters that it would not honor two Hamas terrorists as originally scheduled.At least they did the right thing but it shows the scope of those who fall for Pallywood productions.
The Newseum made the announcement just minutes before the induction of several new reporters into its Journalist Memorial, which honors members of the media who have been killed in the line of duty.
“Serious questions have been raised as to whether two of the individuals included on our initial list of journalists who died covering the news this past year were truly journalists or whether they were engaged in terrorist activities,” the museum said in a statement posted to its website.

State Dept. Seeking Muslim Foreign Service Officers, Connections To Extremists/Hamas No Problem?
Wait, that's another story, Benghazi on me brain but..
A legal watchdog group says the State Department is stonewalling its efforts to obtain records relating to State Department official Mark Ward’s participation in a December 2012[3 months after Benghazi terror attack..ed] conference organized by the controversial Muslim American Society (MAS) and the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).Nothing to see here, move along.
Judicial Watch filed suit against the State Department April 26 in an effort to compel the release of materials related to the potential recruitment of U.S. diplomats through two Muslim-American groups purported to have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorist groups.
The suit, which was announced Thursday, alleges that State has failed to comply with its Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request for detailed documents related to Ward’s speech, in which he discussed “foreign service opportunities for Muslim youth.”
Both MAS and ICNA have ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, the global Islamist movement that controls the Egyptian government and whose military wing, the terror group Hamas, runs the Gaza Strip. The conference at which Ward spoke featured speeches by at least two Muslim activists who have advocated in favor of terrorism and were involved in a 2009 lawsuit regarding fundraising for Hamas.

Benghazi: Names Of 'Whistleblower' Witnesses Released
Rep Issa: GOP Oversight May 8th Benghazi hearing will be streamed live at http://Oversight.House.Gov at 11:30
Their identities have been a well-guarded secret, known only to their high-powered lawyers and a handful of House lawmakers and staff. But now Fox News has learned the names of the self-described Benghazi “whistleblowers” who are set to testify before a widely anticipated congressional hearing on Wednesday.God Bless them for their service and courage to come forward.
Appearing before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee will be three career State Department officials: Gregory N. Hicks, the deputy chief of mission at the U.S. Embassy in Libya at the time of the Benghazi terrorist attacks; Mark I. Thompson, a former Marine and now the deputy coordinator for Operations in the agency’s Counterterrorism Bureau; and Eric Nordstrom, a diplomatic security officer who was the regional security officer in Libya, the top security officer in the country in the months leading up to the attacks[...]
DiGenova told Fox News on Thursday, by way of describing his and Toensing’s respective clients: “There were people who were material witnesses, who wanted to talk to [the ARB], and they were not allowed to talk to them.
“The people that we are representing are career civil servants...people who have served the country overseas…in dangerous positions all over the world, have risked their lives and only want to tell the truth.”
Most likely leftist and Bronco Bama's MFM are working hard to destroy the credibility of these patriots before the hearing even starts.

PC Kills: Pentagon Brass Crush Career Of Decorated Army Officer Who Taught About Radical Islam
The Pentagon’s top brass has dealt another blow to a decorated Army officer who was fired last year as a war college instructor because of his teachings about radical Islam, his attorney told The Washington Times.Ft Hood: Work Place Violence
A four-star general’s rejection of Lt. Col. Matthew Dooley for consideration for command of a combat battalion likely means the end of a promising Army career of an armor officer who was decorated for valor in Iraq and received glowing evaluations[...]
News of Col. Dooley’s setback has emerged as some researchers of radical Islam are criticizing the Obama administration for downplaying the Islamic connection in a string of attempted and successful terrorist attacks, including the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15.
Mr. Thompson, president of the Thomas More Law Center in Michigan, said the blame for Col. Dooley’s treatment ultimately belongs to ArmyGen. Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Gen. Dempsey publicly condemned Col. Dooley’s teachings and set into motion investigations that resulted in his firing[...]
“Yet, despite Gen. Dempsey’s personal attacks on LTC Dooley, a command review board consisting of generals and colonels voted to retain LTC Dooley on the list for battalion command. But political correctness once again dominated the Pentagon. Gen. Lloyd Austin, the Army’s Vice Chief of Staff, directed that LTC Dooley’s name be removed from the Command List. Sadly, a principle of leadership — loyalty to the men who are loyal to you — is once again ignored. [More...]

Report: Boston Has Proven Attractive To al-Qaeda Linked Jihadist
Muslim extremists with ties to al Qaeda have been using Massachusetts and the city of Boston as a jihadi headquarters since at least 1993, according to a recent report by a top terrorism analyst.Color me not surprised.
At least 26 residents were found to have ties to al Qaeda, according to the report by the Henry Jackson Society. The activity dates from before the Tsarnaev brothers, radical Muslim immigrants to the United States, were identified as the suspects in the Boston Marathon bombing.
Jihadist activity has taken place in Massachusetts since at least 1993 and includes in-state fundraising for terrorism, “those convicted of planning jihad, and even those who have been killed while fighting abroad,” according to the report by terrorism analyst Robin Simcox.
The city [of Boston] and state of Massachusetts has a long history of ties to AQ [al Qaeda] and AQ-inspired militancy,” the report states.
“Even prior to last week’s Boston bombing, there had been twenty six individuals with links to Massachusetts connected to AQ [al Qaeda] and AQ-inspired terrorism,” the report states. “Fifteen had lived in Massachusetts, with eleven 9/11 hijackers using the Boston area as a temporary base from which to launch their attacks.”
The report provides a window into Massachusetts’ struggles with terrorists as the city of Boston grapples with the Tsarvaev brothers’ deadly acts.

Obama Administration Officials Threatened Whistle-Blowers On #Benghazi, Lawyer Says
At least four career officials at the State Department and the Central Intelligence Agency have retained lawyers or are in the process of doing so, as they prepare to provide sensitive information about the Benghazi attacks to Congress, Fox News has learned.You can view James Rosen's full report here.
Victoria Toensing, a former Justice Department official and Republican counsel to the Senate Intelligence Committee, is now representing one of the State Department employees. She told Fox News her client and some of the others, who consider themselves whistle-blowers, have been threatened by unnamed Obama administration officials.
I'm not talking generally, I'm talking specifically about Benghazi – that people have been threatened,” Toensing said in an interview Monday. “And not just the State Department. People have been threatened at the CIA.”[...]
However, Toensing disclosed that her client has pertinent information on all three time periods investigators consider relevant to the attacks: the months that led up to the attack, when pleas by the ambassador and his staff for enhanced security in Benghazi were mostly rejected by senior officers at the State Department; the eight-hour time frame in which the attacks unfolded, and the eight-day period that followed the attacks, when Obama administration officials incorrectly described them as the result of a spontaneous protest over a video.[Video maker still in jail..ed]
“It's frightening, and they're doing some very despicable threats to people,” she said. “Not ‘we're going to kill you,’ or not ‘we're going to prosecute you tomorrow,’ but they're taking career people and making them well aware that their careers will be over [if they cooperate with congressional investigators].”

MFM Echoes Harvard 'Revolutionary Socialists' Post #BostonBombing Talking Points
Via Rebel Pundit:
The Harvard “Revolutionary” Socialists gathered last week, just three days after the Boston Marathon bombings, for a forum entitled “Don’t Let Them Turn Tragedy into Racism” on the Harvard University campus.Certainly some, if not all, of those in the video support the #FreeJahar hashtag on Twitter.
The two speakers, including “one of Britain’s leading young radical intellectuals,” put forth talking points that not only express the “Revolutionary” socialists’ opinion of the Boston terrorism, but also appear to almost exactly echo those put forth by the mainstream media in the U.S.
From the New Yorker to the Chicago Tribune, MSNBC, and even Tom Brokaw, the media marched in lockstep with the finger-pointing talking points presented in close proximity to the site of the terror at Harvard’s Socialist forum—finger-pointing at anyone and anything but Islamic Jihadis.
Many Americans have expressed disgust at the extreme pains some of the more elite members of the media went to avoid “prematurely judging” or presuming that whoever was responsible for the attack might be Islamic Jihadis. This, coupled with failing to extend such courtesy to those Americans among us opposed to high taxes and big government, was particularly revealing of the focus of the mainstream media.
Just sayin is all...

Hagel: Gee, I Guess We Won't Deactivate NYC's ONLY Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Team Now
"Make the sequester hurt" hit's a hurdle after terrorism in Boston
The only U.S. military team assigned to New York City to support first responders in case of a disaster will remain on duty. It was just saved on the brink of elimination.Wake up call to those still living in a pre-9/11 bubble, again.
A day after the bombings at the Boston Marathon, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel rescinded his decision to disband the rapid-response unit based at Fort Hamilton in Brooklyn.
His abrupt change of mind was a relief to New Yorkers amid the sudden new concerns about terrorism. During testimony on Capitol Hill, Mr. Hagel announced that the Pentagon won't deactivate the 24th National Guard Weapons of Mass Destruction-Civil Support Team (WMD-CST)[...]
WMD-CSTs are trained to provide rapid military support to civil authorities in the event of a chemical, biological, radiological or nuclear threat.
Mr. Hagel acknowledged that his reversal on funding the pair of units in New York and Florida means they will not become the victims of federal cost-cutting[...]
"The 24th National Guard WMD-CST team has done exceptional job, not just in New York, but also in Boston, where they were on the ground responding to the horrific attack on the marathon," Mr. Grimm said. "This week's events have reminded us that we must remain vigilant, and this elite team assists that effort." [More..]

Richard Landes: Islamism Is Winning The Cognitive War Thanks To Manipulative & Gullible Journalists
I would add PC to his list.
Anyone who remembers the halcyon dreams of the 1990s, of civil society spreading the world over, heralding a new peaceful, global millennium, must marvel at the path the young 21st century has taken. Even those who paid attention to global Jihad before the millennium could not imagine how vulnerable the West would prove in the coming, wildly asymmetrical war. Those who, over the course of the last 13 years, have awakened to the ever-growing danger of Islamism and to the astonishing inability of decent people – Muslims and non-Muslims – to effectively oppose its aggressions, owe themselves a brief lesson in cognitive warfare, and a second look at the nuclear bomb of that warfare, the Muhammad al Durah affair.The following video, "Pallywood," will give you a glimpse into that Palestinian propaganda machine. It is important to note that the al Durah video above was filmed on this same day and at the same location as the video below.
All asymmetrical wars take place primarily in the cognitive arena, with the major theater of war the enemy’s public sphere. The goal is to convince your far more powerful enemy not to fight. In defensive cases, from the Maccabees to the Vietnamese, this has meant getting imperial powers to “go home.” But Islamists who want to spread Dar al Islam[is the area of the world under the rule of Islam , literally, "the home of Islam" or "the home of submission"..ed] conduct an offensive campaign: how to get your targets to surrender on their own home ground? In this seemingly absurd venture, they have had remarkable success.
The mainstream news media – their journalists, editors, producers – constitute a central front of this cognitive war: the “weak” but aggressive side cannot have success without the witting or unwitting cooperation of the enemy’s journalists. The success of global Jihad in eliciting our media’s cooperation with their goals

Obama Reinstated Financial Aid to Palestinian Authority under False Pretense, Expert Says
by Adam Kredo
The Obama administration justified releasing more than $192 million in financial aid to the Palestinian Authority with false information, according to an Israeli expert who monitors the Palestinian media’s constant promotion of violent, hateful rhetoric.
The administration quietly reinstated the P.A.’s aid last month after it was frozen by Congress in the wake of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’s attempt to declare statehood before the United Nations. The administration also secretly attempted to restore funding to a U.N. cultural agency that unilaterally—and illegally—recognized the “State of Palestine.”[...]
“The Palestinians will never stop if the U.S. keeps doing this,” he said. “If we want peace this has to stop. The policy should be based on correct information.”
Referring to Vietor’s official explanation of why the P.A. should be given millions of taxpayer dollars, Marcus said, “That first statement from the White House is a total mistake,” and noted, “all of these examples happened in the last few months, some of it in the same week that the White House made that statement.”
When the White House signs off on P.A. aid without condemning such rhetoric, “they’re telling the P.A. that you can continue glorifying violence and teaching your kids to continue making maps that don’t show Israel. They’re giving them a clean bill of health, and that’s the danger here.”

CAIR Wants Federal Investigation of Teacher Who May or May Not Have Said Something Stupid
There was a time when saying don't make a federal case out of it meant that you were making a rather big deal out of something mundane. That is, it was a bad thing to make a federal case out of it.
So, did a teacher in Washington State actually say this?
The teacher also allegedly remarked that Arabs and Muslims learn that killing innocent people is acceptable.Let us assume that the teacher did say these things. She denies it, says the student took her remarks out of context which she claims were made about terrorists, and the school district is backing her up.
Such behavior is “just like Hitler,” she said, according to KCPQ.[emphasis mine]
But, for the sake of argument, let us assume that she did say what she is alleged to have said by the student and CAIR (natch).
What federal law did she break that CAIR would like investigated?
She is alleged to have said something that might be construed as offensive. I seem to recall something in the Constitution. What was that again? Oh, right:
Congress shall make no law ... abridging the freedom of speechSo, to recap: She spoke, now CAIR wants the federal government to punish her for speaking.
Not that anyone with half a brain ever accused CAIR of understanding or respecting the Constitution of the US. Nor has anyone ever accused CAIR of being a legitimate 'civil rights' organization. Civil rights organizations promote Constitutional rights, they do not agitate for their repeal.
The federal government simply lacks any authority over what a school teacher says in their classroom.
Now, this does not mean that the school district has no right to censor their teachers. Nor does it mean that states have no right to fire teachers who do stupid things. School districts and state governments are emphatically not "Congress" -- or a federal institution -- which is what the First Amendment restricts.
School districts can and should make sure their employees aren't shooting off their mouths saying stupid things.
But let us look more closely at the allegation. She is alleged to have said that Muslims raise their children to be martyrs. That is kind of offensive and I could see why one might get upset over that.
She claims that she said no such thing, but said that "Hamas" and "the Taliban" raise their kids to be martyrs. What's offensive about that? If that offends you then you deserve to be offended and much, much more.
But the real problem that CAIR has is with her statement that the "behavior" of killing innocent people is "just like Hitler".
Get that? It's the behavior of killing innocent people that is just like Hitler. Which it is.
I know that there are generally far too many Hitler comparisons, but if CAIR thinks that it is out-of-bounds to compare the behavior of killing innocent people to Hitler then I'm just not sure I get the objection.
For some time now I've been observing a still unnamed phenomenon that is the antithesis of Islamophobia. Whereas Islamophobes are bigots who assume that Muslims are suspect simply because they are Muslims, these other as yet to be classified bigots assume that Muslims are innocent victims simply because they are Muslims. The US is out to get Muslims, both at home and abroad, so of course accusations must be true.
When a Muslim makes an accusation of discrimination they assume that the accusation is true because it is their deep seated belief that America is populated by so-called Islamophobes.
Do I think the people at CAIR believe the accusation is true? Yes, I do. Because CAIR has shown by its words and actions over the years that it is full of conspiracy minded bigots who believe that Americans are bad people who hate them and who are engaged in a "Crusade" against Islam around the world and at home.
And so I think it is ironical that those who cry Islamophobia at every turn reveal their own deep seated bigotry against their fellow Americans with every new accusation.
Thanks to Johnny for the tip.

VA Imam Urges Ethiopian Muslims to Fight Jihad w/ Armaments
I've heard Christian ministers give fiery sermons on why Christians ought to stand up for their faith. Such rhetoric is not unique to Islam.
But what I've never heard on a Sunday morning is the interjection that Christians ought to add "armaments" to their arsenal of tools to fight their enemies. Prayers, yes. Fasting, yes. Bible study, yes. Courage, yes. Patience, yes.
But 'armaments'? Nope.

Robert Leslie Deak, a major backer of Imam Feisel Abdul Rauf’s nonprofit, the Cordoba Initiative, says he discovered that the religious leader had allegedly used the funds for “his personal use” including “a luxury sports car, personal real estate, entertainment, lavish trips, and vacation” with an unidentified woman named Evelyn Adorno, the court papers, filed late yesterday, claim.That last $20 million was slated to go combating "anti-Islamic sentiment". You know, like the widespread Islamophobic notion that imams like Rauf spend lavish amounts on their mistresses.
Deak, of Scarsdale and the Deak Family Foundation, is suing Rauf for $20 million.

Ma'an News Agency: Antisemites R Us
[...]Ma'an News Agency, "an integral part of Ma'an Network," "was launched with generous funding from the Danish Representative Office to the Palestinian Authority
Some of the donors with whom Ma'an Network partners are The European Commission (the EU), UNDP, UNESCO, the Government of Denmark, the Government of the Netherlands, UKaid.
"Undeterred in its mission to convey the truth" says a slogan among several on Ma'an Network's website[...]
The following is part of the Antisemitic article on Ma'an's website (emphasis added):
"Israel is Trembling"
by Sawsan Najib Abd Al-Halim
"We're used to seeing vampires in Dracula movies, where the murderer and the vampire act in the dead of night, and as soon as dawn breaks, the murderer disappears and hides during the day.
The brave warrior, who at the very least has moral values, fights in the daytime. In all wars, in all eras, honorable nations conducted their battles during the day and slept at night. But has Israel even a trace of morality?
A brave warrior is proud when he confronts another [warrior] as brave as he, and the more he is struck, the stronger he grows, proud in his struggle and respectful of his adversary. But since Jews are - as our grandparents said of them - sons of death (expression of contempt, meaning 'a coward,' -Ed.), they are too cowardly to confront an enemy face to face, especially if their enemy is as well armed as they...
Jews think that their fortresses will protect them from death, but any breach of these fortresses or protective walls instills panic and fear in their hearts, and they are seized by fear and trembling. If a missile falls beyond their protective walls or if even a bullet passes over them, you can see how their hearts fill with horror - and this is because Allah has stricken fear in their hearts and decreed humiliation and degradation upon them until Judgment Day...
Historically, it is known that the lives of Jews have always been war and fighting. The only reason for this is that they have been outcasts in every corner of the earth, and not one nation in the world respects them, for they cause strife, and scheme everywhere they settle. We know that they have been defeated in every war they have fought throughout history, and they have been dispersed in every direction, but Allah's curse upon them and his fury at them cause them to continue with their transgression and tyranny.
The Ma'an article concludes with Fatah's slogan: "Revolution until victoryIslamofacists suck testes.

Sharia Enforcement Gang Arrested in London
Remember the video showing a gang of young men in London's Whitechapel area harassing people into sharia enforcement? They've been arrested:
British police say they've arrested four men linked to a video of self-proclaimed Muslim vigilantes threatening revelers on the streets of east London.Incidentally, I was in Whitechapel about nine months ago and it remains today, as it was in Jack the Ripper's time, London's armpit.
One of the videos shows a group shouting anti-gay slurs at a man in dark eye makeup. Other videos show a group accosting a drink-toting man, shooing a non-Muslim couple away from a mosque and harassing a young woman in a miniskirt.

“Chicks on the Right,” a popular conservative website, could lose its Facebook community after posting a critical message about the White House press secretary that allegedly violated the social networking site’s standards.Needless to say the liberal truth squads were quick to get to work on denying Chicks on the Right 1st amendment rights.
The controversy involves a posting on their Facebook fan page that referred readers to a website posting titled, “You Know What? Liberal Hypocrisy is Starting to Cause Me Actual Physical Pain.”
The Chicks on the Right, “Jay Carney can kiss my assular area,” wrote Mockarena, who runs the website with Daisy, a medical writer and adjunct professor of communications.
I for one am like totally pretending to be shocked that Facebook is full of liberal fascists.
Dearbornistan: McDonald's Pays Jizya
McDonald's pays out some serious cash to appease the Muslim community in Dearborn, Michigan. Looks like McD's is off my menu for good. (Not that it was really ever on it.)
DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) — McDonald's and one of its franchise owners agreed to pay $700,000 to members of the Muslim community to settle allegations a Detroit-area restaurant falsely advertised its food as being prepared according to Islamic dietary law. [...]
The lawsuit alleged that Ahmed bought a chicken sandwich in September 2011 at a Dearborn McDonald's but found it wasn't halal — meaning it didn't meet Islamic requirements for preparing food. Islam forbids consumption of pork, and God's name must be invoked before an animal providing meat for consumption is slaughtered.

Google's Blogger Removes Gates of Vienna, Keeps al Qaeda Sympathizers
Update: They're Back
The Banner of an al Qaeda Support website hosted by Google
The Gates of Vienna blog has been removed without explanation by Google's blogspot platform. I can't say I agree with these guys on everything, but what could they have possibly done that merited the entire blog being suspended?
UPDATE: It looks like Howie and I had the same thought at about the same time.
Update II by Howie: I've taken my post off the main page. So I'll add this note here to Rusty's post.
Gates of Vienna just emailed me and Blogger is claiming a technical glitch at the moment. Other blogs have been affected. So we'll give it a chance.
But considering mine and other conservative and counter Jihad bloggers own past experience with Google I won't be holding my breath.
UPDATE by Rusty: It looks like they're back up and running. So, the technical difficulty explanation seems .... plausible.
Nevertheless, Google's blogspot service continues to host a number of websites devoted to al Qaeda worship.

Johnny Jihad Wins Prison Prayer Lawsuit
INDIANAPOLIS — A federal judge ruled Friday that an American convicted of fighting alongside the Taliban must be allowed to pray daily in a group with other Muslim inmates at his high-security prison in Indiana.Gawd
Barring John Walker Lindh and his fellow Muslims from engaging in daily group ritual prayer violates a 1993 law that bans the government from curtailing religious speech without showing a compelling interest, U.S. District Judge Jane Magnus-Stinson ruled.
The judge blocked the prison from enforcing its ban on daily group prayer, but she noted that her ruling does not prohibit the prison from taking less restrictive security measures[...]
Prison officials argued that the same restrictions applied to inmates of all religions. They also argued that it would be dangerous, unaffordable and unfair to other inmates to meet Lindh's demands. Government witnesses testified that Muslims, who make up the majority of inmates in the unit, have operated like a gang under the guise of religious activity.
U.S. Attorney Joe Hogsett, whose office represented the prison, said Friday that prosecutors were considering their next step, including a possible appeal.
"This case deals with critically important issues that have significance both inside and outside the walls of our federal prison facilities," Hogsett said. "Our concern continues to be the safety and security of both our federal prison system and the United States of America."[More...]

Al Gore Sells Current TV To Al Jazeera
Do you think they will rehire Keith Olbermann?
Such a perfect fit, leftist and Islamists
Al Jazeera is finalizing a deal to take over Current TV, the low-rated cable channel that was founded by Al Gore and his business partners seven years ago.File this under Domestic Dhimmis/Stealth Jihad
If the deal is completed, Current will provide the pan-Arab news giant with something it has sought for years: a pathway into American living rooms. Current is available in about 60 million of the 100 million homes in the United States with cable or satellite service.
Update: Dhimmis at NY Times shows their approval: Al Jazeera Seeks a U.S. Voice Where Gore Failed
Update II: Glenn Beck tried to purchase Current but was turned down
.....The Wall Street Journal reports:Mr. Hyatt said they agreed to sell to Al Jazeera in part because “Al Jazeera was founded with the same goals we had for Current,” including “to give voice to those whose voices are not typically heard” and “to speak truth to power.” Other suitors who didn’t share Current’s ideology were rebuffed. Glenn Beck’s The Blaze approached Current about buying the channel last year, but was told that “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view,” according to a person familiar with the negotiations
Based on Hyatt’s quote, the owners of Current TV didn’t want Glenn to purchase Current TV and put TheBlaze in millions of home across the country because they didn’t agree with his point of view. They must not feel the same way about Al Jazeera, a news organization that ran an op-ed comparing Glenn to a terrorist.

Former Senior US Official: 'Killing Palis Popular in Israel Around Election Time'..(Video)
No better place for this gentlemen, and I use that term loosely, to state his anti-Jewish views than on Russia's TV station:
Via The Jewish Press:
'No rockets where fired into Israel before the snuff of Hamas leader', what? An anti-tank missile hit a IDF jeep. I guess that doesn't count. Also, if I remember right, 800 rockets were fired into Israel before Israel started their op against Hamas. Hamas hides among the civilian population in Gaza so IDF drops leaflets warning residents to get away from them. Target civilians? Really? How very Pallywood of Freeman.
Hamas tweeted constantly during Pillar of Defense how they targeted Israeli civilians as all Israelis are their enemy. Their chants, From the river to the sea Palestine will be free, is their sole purpose...the total destruction of Israel.
He also said Israel chose a biblical name for their operation "Pillar of Defense". The Jewish Press notes the names are chosen by computer:
It should be noted that the names of IDF operations are generated by computer, chosen from a bank of random words, and not picked by rabbis for their religious implications. Freeman would have to explain the biblical significance of Operation Summer Rains (28 June – 26 November 2006), Operation Autumn Clouds (31 October–7 November 2006), Operation Orchard (6 September 2007), and Operation Sea Breeze (31 May 2010).No Arab lobby? I beg to differ, he knows damn well about the Arab lobby. Discover the Networks has a excellent breakdown of their structure
He also stated the media is pro-Israel, oh really? Like al-Reuters, A(associated)P(press of terrorists)? CNN? WaPo? NYTimes? al-Jazeera? BBC? Guardian? Haertz? I could go on and on. Very few media outlets report truthfully when it comes to Israel.
Related, the real story behind Freeman's withdrawal to chair the National Intelligence Council: Charles Freeman Pulls Out.
Update: Via Rubin Reports. Dispelling the "election myth" Freeman spoke of: Israel's Motives Behind the Gaza War - True and False

Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.): Clinton Should Testify on #Benghazi Terror Attack
It's about time this came up, thank you Sen Ayotte. Will it happen though, that is the question. Yes, I am pessimistic. It's been almost three months and we have yet get to the bottom of this. The fallen and their families deserve the truth as does the American people.
Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.) said Secretary of State Hillary Clinton should testify right away about the Sept. 11 terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi.Note: Full video of the interview is below the fold.
In an interview on Fox News Wednesday, Ayotte said Clinton needed to explain the insufficient security for the consulate in the wake of earlier assaults, especially after taking responsibility, as head of the State Department, for the safety of American diplomats.
“She has said she will testify but **only after the internal report investigation is done,” Ayotte said. “I think she should testify immediately, but we have not heard her testimony yet and I think that’s got to be a priority
Remember, Hillary and bronco bama chose former **Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering to lead the investigation of the State Departments role in the screw up. He has previously called Americans Islamophobic and raaaacist.
America is a seething hotbed of “Islamophobia,” filled with ignorant racist rubes who irrationally fear the benign Muslim religion, according to the Obama administration’s lead investigator into the Benghazi atrocities.Continued below fold:
So said former Ambassador Thomas R. Pickering in more polished, diplomatic language during an Oct. 23 panel discussion at the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. The talk was on “what role the faith community can play in fighting Islamophobia,” a make-believe mental illness that Islamists would love to have listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
Radical Islam’s stateside defenders frequently accuse anti-terrorism hawks of “McCarthyism,” hurling the epithet “Islamophobe” the same way American leftists use the word “racist” to shut down debate.Yes, Hillary needs to testify now.
Pickering’s pontifications came two and a half weeks after Secretary of State Hillary Clinton named him to head a State Department “Accountability Review Board” tasked with examining the circumstances surrounding the deaths on Sept. 11, 2012, the 11th anniversary of 9/11, of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens, information management officer Sean Smith, and security personnel Glen Doherty, and Tyrone Woods at the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya.

Confirmed: Military Judges Just as Moronic as Civilian Judges
You know, back in the good old days when you refused a superior officers orders to shave, they took you out back, strapped you to a chair, and then proceeded to shave you sans cream and with a straight razor. Usually with words to the effect of, "Now, you hold real still like".
That, or they sent you on a suicide mission to kill Nazis.
But today? Apparently when a military judge orders you to shave and you don't, the judge is in the wrong and is removed from the proceedings:
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Armed Forces ruled Monday that Col. Gregory Gross should no longer preside over the military trial of Maj. Nidal Hasan due in part to what it called a "duel of wills" between judge and defendant. Hasan is charged with 13 counts of murder in the November 2009 shooting rampage....If my understanding of this is correct, then we are in a sh*t load of trouble. The Army has learned nothing from the Fort Hood shootings.
The court of appeals declined to rule on whether Hasan could keep the beard, but it also indicated that the next judge may not be the right authority to decide that issue, suggesting that the case will move forward.
The shooting would never had happened had the Army not overlooked the many warning signs that Nidal Hasan was becoming an Islamic radical because they were afraid of offending Islamic sensibilities. This appeals court ruling only confirms that the military is more afraid of offending Muslims than it cares about protecting its own soldiers. Which is perverse given that many of those same soldiers are practicing Muslims, who gladly shave when ordered to do so.
