Mormons Riot, Kill Woman & Baby Over "Book of Mormon: The Musical" Blasphemy

Yeah, I know, but if you can think of some other way to snark this without recycling the obvious joke then please feel free to start your own blog:

Rioting erupted as rumours spread that a young Ahmadi man, identified as Saqib, shared a blasphemous picture on Facebook, Pakistan Today reported.

It allegedly included the Kaaba — the cuboid building at the centre of the Grand Mosque in Mecca that Muslims face in prayer – and contained nudity.

A mob reportedly gathered outside Saqib’s house and started protesting.

When they moved to a doctor’s house where Ahmadis were thought to be hiding, someone inside reportedly shot at the mob and injured the man who had started the Facebook rumour.

The group then set five Ahmadi houses on fire, killing the woman and children and injuring several others.

Since these are Ahmadis being murdered in the name of the Religion of Peace, Ahmadis consider themselves Muslim, but some Sunni Muslims do not, then maybe the better headline analogy would be something like, "Mormon Woman and Baby Murdered by Presbyterians Riots for Blasphemous Facebook Post"?

In any event, you get the picture.

Cutting Through the Crap

As many of you know the media campaign against Israel by Hamas supporters has been plagued by recycled images posted as if they are happening today.

I think many Hamas propagandists and Israel haters don't really care that they are spinning lies, half truths and recycled images of other conflicts as "atrocities" committed against the Palestinians in the ongoing conflict.

I think they know they are inciting hatred with lies, they just don't care.

But for those of us interested in accuracy this presents a problem, not only in the Israel vs Hamas conflict but in other conflicts. Last week ISIS demanded that Christians in Mosul either pay the Jizya, flee or die. Various interviews of Christian fleeing Mosul indicted that ISIS was not only forcing them to feel, but robbing the refugees and also helping themselves to their property before blowing up their houses.

A copy of the Fatwa directing Christians to flee added some other details, for instance that ISIS had ordered all women in the area to undergo Female Genital Mutilation. The pact looked authentic and has many details of the Dhimmi pact that made sense as well as the ISIS logo. It turn out it was a fake probably circulated by Iran.

Well now there is an attempt to crowd source the effort to separate fact from fiction, a website called CITIZEN EVIDENCE LAB has been started by Amnesty International so that people can submit images and videos and they others can help fact check or find the original origin of these videos and images.

Its like an automated Dr. Rusty Shackleford.

A worthwhile project for sure. So well see how it work out. Hopefully it will help us cut through the fog of propaganda and get more accurate reports on what comes from where.

Obama's Regime Change in Libya Goes to Sh*t

Getting rid of Gaddafi, seemed like a good idea at the time. I mean after we turned him into ally of sorts, then we turned on him and gave Libya to al-Qaeda.

Brilliant!

The US says it has temporarily evacuated its staff from the Libyan capital Tripoli over security concerns.

Staff, including marine guards providing security to the embassy, have been transferred to Tunisia "due to the ongoing violence resulting from clashes between Libyan militias," it adds.

Secretary of State John Kerry said there was a "real risk" to staff.

It comes amid fierce clashes between rival militias in the capital, with intense fighting at Tripoli airport.


I mean is there any other way to describe the current situation in Libya. We all talk about how dangerous it is that ISIS has taken territory in Iraq that can be used to train terrorists and attack the west. Libya has been like that every since Obama pushed Gaddafi off the edge.

But "at this point what does it really matter."

I'm reading a lot of pundits that say doesn't Obama even care or notice these foreign policy problems exploding. Because you really can't say that he appears upset.

This reminds me of his youth in Indonesia, his mother wrote that he was constantly teased by the Indonesian boys for being black and that his mom was divorced from his father. Yes Indonesian kids were racist against the young black Obama. They noticed the black a lot more than the mixed, even though probably their skin tone is probably not more than a shade apart.

I bring this up because his mother noted how he could take it, how he could ignore the cruelty being thrown at him and appear to be aloof and happy despite the hardship. How he could withdraw from his tormentors and be happy on his own or with just a few friends, discarding the "bad".

This is a pretty admirable quality in Obama really. Its a toughness.

But in the current situation it people just can't get why he's not tore up.

But I'm not so sure showing the world how much we don't give a f*ck we can really dish out really isn't a pretty good idea.

ISIS takes half of Iraq, we don't give a f*ck. Russia takes Ukriane, we don't give a f*ck.

I mean if it wasn't for the ethnic cleansing and genocide against Christians in the war torn Muslim world I could almost not give a F8ck.

Anyway your thoughts on the We Don't Give Even Half a F*ck strategy in comments.

Islamic State of Syria and Just Plain Stupid Orders Mannequins To Wear Hijab

Because, you now the Muj have been out on the trail for a long time and we don't want them, um temped.

ISIS has ordered shopkeepers in the Iraqi city of Mosul to cover the faces of mannequins, The Associated Press reported Tuesday.

The Sunni extremist group recently declared a caliphate – or Islamic State - covering parts of Syria and Iraq. Shop owners in Mosul said they had been told to cover the faces of male and female mannequins, apparently in line with strict interpretations of Shariah law that forbid statues or artwork depicting the human form.

You know why I'm in this now don't you, I mean the Muj are nothing if not entertaining.

Meanwhile, in Benghazi

No word on which YouTube video is to blame:

Islamist militants attacked an army base in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi on Monday, triggering fierce clashes involving helicopters and jets that killed at least seven people and wounded 40 others, residents and security sources said.

The violence followed a week of fighting between rival militias for control of Tripoli International Airport in the capital that has prompted the North Africa country to appeal for international help to stop Libya becoming a failed state.

Tripoli was calmer on Monday, but in Benghazi, militants linked to Islamist group Ansar al-Sharia attacked an army camp and were repelled by troops and forces loyal to renegade retired general Khalifa Haftar, who has been carrying out a self-declared war on Islamist fighters, security sources said.

CAIR Dumps Pretense And Posts Dead Babies in Support of Hamas

First about CAIR:

In 2008, the FBI discontinued its long-standing relationship with CAIR. Officials said the decision followed the conviction of the HLF directors for funneling millions of dollars to Hamas, revelations that Nihal Awad had participated in planning meetings with HLF, and CAIR's failure to provide details of its ties to Hamas.[59][60] During a 2008 retrial of the HLF case, FBI Special Agent Lara Burns labeled CAIR "a front group for Hamas."[61] In January 2009, the FBI's DC office instructed all field offices to cut ties with CAIR, as the ban extended into the Obama administration.[62]
Of course this week Nihal Awad was all over the Tee Vee whining about the NSA monitoring his communications, claiming he is as pure as the driven snow and the NSA was only motivated by the fact that he's Muslim.

So there is reason to think CAIR might be supporting Hamas, which is a specially declared terrorist entity as declared by the US dept of Treasury.

Today CAIR dropped the pretense and joined in the dead baby porn hate campaign that Hamas and its supporters are running against Israel.


Apparently CAIR thinks the news media is not printing enough dead Palestinian babies. But I've seen most if not all of the images and videos in their post.

Its little more than propagation of Hamas propaganda.

Israel Damned If They Do Damned If They Don't

CNN:

Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, meanwhile, convened an emergency meeting of his Cabinet on Wednesday to discuss the crisis.

"This war is not against Hamas or another political party, but it is against the Palestinian people," he told the media afterward. "What do you call this crime? What is this crime known under international law? To kill entire families, is this collective punishment?

"This is called collective genocide."

The problem is that entire families are putting themselves at harms risk on purpose. Then when they are killed , the Palestinians point their one hand at Israel, while out the other side of their mouth they praise those willing to sacrifice themselves as human shields.

palishield.jpg

Also note the double standard, Hamas says any Israeli is a legitimate target, all of them. Civilians, mothers, babies. Whatever. Killing Jews is Halal you see.

But when one of them dies, oh my. Then the double narrative starts, calling it murder when at the same time praising the so called martyrs.

You have to watch the Prince of Lies. He's got you coming and going. You just have to stand up for yourself. And Israel is almost the last nation willing to stand against Islamic terrorists. Because they have little choice other than to defend themselves.

While we on the other hand, our President can Play pool while Rome burns and call for "restraint".

Lets face it, the west is screwed, unless it gets its act together very soon.

It seems to me that this has escalated very quickly, and sometimes I think every death in Israel is seen as political. Sometimes a murder or kidnapping is just that. But in the context of the conflict, we in the west are lucky enough to have the time and space to question these things. Whereas in Israel the dress rehearsal for the destruction of their nation is always on.

My whole life there has always been an Israel, with its current borders for the most part, what it has not given away recently for "peace". And the Palestinians have always been idiots, consumed with recovering a past that never existed. Always more concerned with hate and destruction than with making themselves a better future in spite of most of the world's wishes for them.

I and I think a lot of the world would support and help them, but those helping or supporting them can count on two things, the Palestinians Jew hatred screwing it up and a knife in the back. Its not worth helping them when they won't help themselves.

I'm pretty worried that rather than the usual ass whoppoin dealt out by the Israelis followed by a Hudna or peaceful period in which the Palestinians lick their wounds, I'm worried that this time it may indeed spin out of control.

To the North Lebanon and Syria are a mess, to the south, Egypt to the East Jordan is the last bastion of stability, but ISIS is eyeing Jordan from Iraq.

WWIII is about 13 years old now and it shows no signs of fading. Can we call it WWIII yet? I should think so, there's few parts of the world not affected by some sort of conflict with Islamic terrorists. The only reason we won't call it that is our own sensitivity about religion. We don't want to credit radical Islam with the power it currently holds. How long can we afford this denial?

It seems to me this could all go to sh*t for lack of a better term any time. I hope not. I've been raising alarms about Islamic terrorism and its doctrine being spread on the internet for some time. I was called alarmist, Zionist and an Islamophobe.

But now, after all this, the bud of terrorism has indeed bloomed while western freedom and liberty wilts away.

Liberals Explain that Current Fascist Tobacco Policy Really UnFascist

The Atlantic:

Under Nazi rule, Germany launched the first and most broadly reaching anti-smoking campaign of modern times. Smoking was discouraged in the workplace, and banned in cinemas, and in schools. Policemen and servicemen could not smoke in uniform, and it was not permitted to sell women cigarettes in cafes and other public places. Advertising tobacco products was restricted.

“Nazi officials moved aggressively in an all-out campaign against cigarette smoking in which tobacco was proclaimed ‘an enemy of the people,’” according to Proctor. Hitler frequently pointed out that he had quit smoking in 1919, and that fellow fascists Mussolini and Franco were also non-smokers, unlike Allied enemies Churchill, Stalin, and Roosevelt.

In true fascist fashion, warnings against smoking often featured Hitler himself, according to Proctor, with statements such as “Brother national socialist, do you know that your Fuhrer is against smoking and thinks that every German is responsible to the whole people for all his deeds and omissions, and does not have the right to damage his body with drugs?”

But banning smoking and E-cigs and large sugary snacks and white bread these days, totally unfascist.
Proctor is quick to say he does not mean to argue that it should in any way be celebrated. “The fear may be that by acknowledging such a work, one might somehow give credence to Nazi ideals or policy,” he says. “My intention is not to argue that today's anti-tobacco efforts have fascist roots, or that public health measures are in principle totalitarian.” However, he does conclude that “the Nazi campaign against tobacco was as fascist as the yellow stars and the death camps.”
Nah its the same, but you know, different. Like 7-Up is the uncola recent anti smoking and anti drug laws are unfascist.

Because surely a liberal nanny state can't be the same as the National Socialist Workers nanny state. It just can't.

I know my logic here is pretty bad. But but but.

Good News: al Qaeda So on the Run That US Warns of Airplane, Airport Bomb Plots

Two separate warnings today. First, a very specific threat of an attack in Uganda:

The U.S Embassy has received information from the Uganda Police Force (UPF) that according to intelligence sources there is a specific threat to attack Entebbe International Airport by an unknown terrorist group today, July 3rd, between the hours of 2100-2300. Individuals planning travel through the airport this evening may want to review their plans in light of this information.

U.S. Embassy Kampala wishes to remind U.S. citizens of the continued threat of potential terrorist attacks in the country. The targets for these attacks could include hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, shopping malls, diplomatic missions, transportation hubs, religious institutions, government offices, or public transportation.

And a more vague threat on airplanes elsewhere:
Security is tightening this morning at some overseas airports with direct flights to the U.S. because of concerns about al Qaeda's efforts to create an undetectable bomb, as well as the threat of Western militants trained in the Middle East.

Former CIA deputy director Mike Morell, now a CBS News analyst, said on "CBS This Morning" that the biggest threat would be those Western militants -- currently fighting in Syria -- joining forces with al Qaeda in Yemen, which has the unique capability to produce nonmetallic bombs.

Now that we've left Iraq and are "focused like a laser beam on al Qaeda", how's that working out for us?

Good News! al-Nusra Joins ISIS Umbrella

Channel News Asia:

Al-Qaeda's Syrian offshoot issued a loyalty pledge on Wednesday to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant at a tinderbox town on the Iraqi border, a monitor said.

The merger is significant as it opens the way for ISIL to take control of both sides of the border at Albu Kamal in Syria and Al-Qaim in Iraq, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

ISIL -- which aspires to create an Islamic state that straddles Iraq and Syria -- has spearheaded a lightning jihadist offensive that has captured swathes of territory north and west of Baghdad this month.

After months of clashes between the two sides, Al-Qaeda's official Syrian arm the Al-Nusra Front "pledged loyalty to ISIL" in Albu Kamal, said Observatory director Rami Abdel Rahman.

"The pledge comes amid advances by ISIL in Deir Ezzor province" in eastern Syria on the Iraqi border, Abdel Rahman told AFP.

An ISIL jihadist confirmed the reports on Twitter, and posted a photograph showing an Egyptian Al-Nusra Front commander shaking hands with a ISIL leader of Chechen origin.

Can we nuke them now? Or do we wait till they get to Amman?

US Cuts Off Nose to Spite Its Face in Afghanistan

We deserve to lose, don't we?

A legendary Special Forces commander was quietly forced to leave the U.S. Army after he admitted to a love affair with a Washington Post war correspondent, who quit her job to secretly live with him for almost a year in one of the most dangerous combat outposts in Afghanistan.

U.S. Army Special Operations Command never publicly disclosed that highly-decorated Green Beret Major Jim Gant was relieved of command at the end of a harrowing 22 months in combat in March 2012.

By the time he was yanked out of Afghanistan two years later because of his relationship with Tyson, Gant also had won over three Pashtun tribes with substantial influence throughout Kunar province. Top commanders had tasked him with turning the tide of a conflict America was losing, and in his corner of the war, Gant was winning.

When you have a winner, you back him.

I mean General Grant was the F*cking Old Drunk that ended up saving The Union.

Cornhole Watch: Kassim Alhimidi 26 Years to Life

We pray that Kassim keeps running his mouth thereby guaranteeing that his 26 years to life ends up being life.

A California judge sentenced an Iraqi immigrant Monday to 26 years-to-life in prison for his wife's fatal beating — an attack that initially drew international condemnation when authorities believed it was a hate crime.

2014-04-17T220822Z_163078222_GM1EA4I0GQ801_RTRMADP_3_USA-IRAQ-MURDER.JPG

The couple's oldest daughter, Fatima, found Shaima Alawadi, 32, in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor of their home in 2012 in El Cajon, a San Diego suburb that is home to the second-largest Iraqi population in the United States.

She died at a hospital two days later after suffering multiple fractures to her skull.

... Alhimidi will have to serve 26 years actual time before he is eligible for a parole hearing, but he will get credit for time already served since his November 2012 arrest.

Apparently Kassim would have rather been put to death that stay in prison, he offered to donate his organs. Well maybe, just maybe, one of the inmates will help him out.

But I kinda like that he's getting what he doesn't want. I'm also glad this is the very last time Kassim will appear on this blog.

Buh bye Kassim, don't let Bubba hit you where Allah split you.

American Flag a Threat to Muslims?

KHOU: WEBSTER, Texas -- A Webster man says his apartment complex manager told him his American flag was a “threat to the Muslim community,” and that he has to take it down. But he’s not giving up without a fight.

Stepping onto Duy Tran's balcony in Webster, one thing is clear: "It means a lot to me," he said.

He's talking about his American flag that he proudly put up when he moved in just a few days ago. But then an apartment manager at the Lodge on El Dorado told him he had to take it down.

"What really stunned me is that she said it’s a threat towards the Muslim community,” said Tran. “I’m not a threat toward anybody."

Awesome: Qatar Gave US Supplied Stinger Missiles to Taliban

If true, this is ... pretty damning:

My sources in the US Special Operations community believe the Stinger fired against the Chinook [in Afghanistan in 2012] was part of the same lot the CIA turned over to the ­Qataris in early 2011, weapons Hillary Rodham Clinton’s State Department intended for anti-Khadafy forces in Libya.

They believe the Qataris delivered between 50 and 60 of those same Stingers to the Taliban in early 2012, and an additional 200 SA-24 Igla-S surface-to-air missiles.

Qatar now is expected to hold five Taliban commanders released from Guantanamo for a year before allowing them to go to Afghanistan.

Sure, let's trust these people. Oh, and on a very related note:
The deepest concerns of critics of President Obama’s decision to release five Taliban commanders from Guantanamo Bay, Cuba in exchange for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl may be coming to fruition.

One of the commanders, Noorullah Noori, has plans to return to Afghanistan to resume fighting against the U.S., according to NBC News which spoke to another Taliban commander.

“After arriving in Qatar, Noorullah Noori kept insisting he would go to Afghanistan and fight American forces there,” the commander told NBC News.

So, we have that to look forward to.

Big Brother Goes Along For The Ride

You knew it was coming, might want to hang on that not so smart car, forever.

To get back to the speed limit helper thing. Using GPS, the car knows when you’re “speeding” — every single time you “speed.” This is easily done by comparing your velocity at any given moment with the posted limit on that road, which info the car downloads continuously via the GPS. The data about your “speeding” can be recorded — and transmitted.

Add a dash of insurance mafia lust to rifle your pockets — and your legal inability to tell them to piss off. You cannot — by law — say “no” to insurance. You must buy it. And they will tell you how much you’ll pay.

... Real-time dunning for every single instance of “speeding.” Perhaps by the insurance mafia — perhaps by the government. From our point of view, it amounts to the same thing.

Driving is about to become a bunch more expensive — and whole lot less fun.

Drug Cartels In Texas

Billboard-threats-1.JPG

Thanks to Obama's open borders and weak immigration laws, drug cartels are not only operating in our southern border states, but they are confident enough to threaten U.S. law enforcement:

EL PASO, Texas -- El Paso police are investigating two mysterious billboards that appeared just off I-10, each with a mannequin hanging from a noose.

"It's not an advertisement," said Mike Mons, regional manager for Lamar Outdoor advertising.

The first vandalized billboard off I-10 had Plata o Plomo in large black letters which translates into silver or lead. It is usually a warning targeting police or government officials in Mexico. The warning: work with a cartel and take a bribe or get a bullet.

Why the cartels are even bothering to threaten is beyond me. With the Obama Administration's border rules, border patrol agents are ordered to run away rather than confront illegals.

Everyone Wave Buh Bye to Kassim Alhimidi

Chron.com:

EL CAJON, Calif. (AP) — An Iraqi immigrant convicted of beating his wife to death in what police initially believed was a hate crime could get life in prison at his sentencing scheduled for Thursday in San Diego County Superior Court.

kassimballinglikebaby.jpg

Chaos broke out in the courtroom last month when Kassim Alhimidi was convicted of bludgeoning his wife with a tire iron at their El Cajon home in March 2012 because she planned to divorce him. Alhimidi wagged his finger and shook his head as the verdict was read, and his son was dragged from the courtroom while shouting out that his father was innocent.

Their eldest daughter, then 17, found Shaima Alawadi, 32, in a pool of blood on the kitchen floor. She died two days later.

A sliding glass door was shattered and a note found nearby read: "This is my country, go back to yours, you terrorist."

Investigators initially suspected the attack was a hate crime before determining that the note was a photocopy — possibly of a note found outside the family home a week earlier by one of the couple's five children.

Prosecutors told the San Diego County jury during a two-week trial that Alhimidi was distraught over his wife's plans to leave him and had urged his children and relatives to get her to stay. Detectives found documents in Alawadi's car indicating she planned to seek a divorce, and the eldest daughter, Fatima, told investigators that her mother wanted to move to Texas to be with her sister.

After the attack, Alhimidi went to the hospital, touched his wife as she lay unconscious in bed, and apologized to her, prosecutor Kurt Mechals said. An uncle of the children who was present told authorities that Alhimidi then turned to him and said that if his wife woke up, she might try to say that he had attacked her.

Tsk tsk tsk.

Updated 05/16/14: The sentencing was delayed until June 23. Bummer.

entencing has been delayed by more than a month for an Iraqi immigrant convicted of the beating death of his wife in what police initially believed was a hate crime.

American Muslims More Outraged Over Bill Maher's Islamophobia Than Boko Haram KIdnapping and Selling Christians

American Muslims won't condemn or excommunicate Boko Haram.

U.S. Islamic leaders won’t try to formally excommunicate the Islamist Boko Haram group unless they can meet with its leadership to debate the religious legitimacy of its actions, a spokesman for a leading mosque told The Daily Caller.
Under Sharia even if these Muslims disagree with Boko Haram they cannot, under Sharia and Hadith, criticize Boko Haram in front of the Kuffar or unbelievers.

But they certainly will go after Bill Maher for suggesting Boko Haram is following Islamic Sharia law and using to justify taking Christian school girls, forcing them to revert and marry or selling them into slavery. Even though Boko Haram quoted the Koran and Sharia in their justification.

While his take on extremist Muslims and how they treat women wasn’t really the problem, his umpteenth attempt to demonize Islam was in fact a huge one.

His tirade against Islam, in particular, is spiraling out of control and this is exactly what a former viewer of Real Time recently pointed out in an open letter to Maher, published by Time Magazine. (see below)

Maher talked about the status of women in Islam like right wing hate-mongers Pamella Geller and Glenn Beck who take acts of terrorism as opportunities to spread Islamophobia without reading or stating the facts.

But then again, the point here is to not create any stereotypes or terrorist labels but it is to destroy this detestable tradition once and for all. There is a thin line between bigotry and liberalism and figures like Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Bill Maher should know better.

It is the responsibility of these “liberal” television pundits to take care of the fact that their opinions do not take the form of hate speech against any religion that can consequently affect the well-being of its followers in the society.

See there the outrage is not that Boko Haram is embarrassing Islam and Muslim by its actions, its Bill Maher who pointing out that Boko Haram is embarrassing Islam and Muslim by its actions that is THE REAL TERRORISM.

Isn't that insane? Its almost as if Muslims first loyalty is to other Muslims. Its almost as if they'll ignore the slavery hundreds of Kuffar and excuse Boko Haram's actions as Halal or permitted.

Wait a minute, I said almost as if. WTF am I saying. Of course they will excuse Boko Haram. After all they released all the Muslim girls.

Face it, under Islam we are second class, we have no rights. We are Kuffar Chattel. Islam is incompatible with freedom and western decency period.

That is not to say all Muslims are bad, just to say those are the rules of Sharia and Islam as I understand them. And you phobes had better get to understand them too. Because the way things are going it won't be that long till American Muslims try to enforce that sixth century law on you.

Update: Oh and I forgot, Maher is still a dick, I mean just because he's a now a fellow phobe can't excuse everything.

Liberal World Finally Notices Boko Haram Islamist Terror

Its pretty amazing, I mean Boko Haram has been murdering, raping and blowing up Nigerian Christians for years. But 300 young girl's kidnapped and sold to slavery seems to have raised the profile.

AYAAN HIRSI ALI:Since the kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls in Nigeria last month, the meaning of Boko Haram—the name used by the terrorist group that seized the girls—has become more widely known. The translation from the Hausa language is usually given in English-language media as "Western Education Is Forbidden," though "Non-Muslim Teaching Is Forbidden" might be more accurate.

But little attention has been paid to the group's formal Arabic name: Jam'at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-da'wa wal-Jihad. That roughly translates as "The Fellowship of the People of the Tradition for Preaching and Holy War." That's a lot less catchy than Boko Haram but significantly more revealing about the group and its mission. Far from being an aberration among Islamist terror groups, as some observers suggest, Boko Haram in its goals and methods is in fact all too representative.

The kidnapping of the schoolgirls throws into bold relief a central part of what the jihadists are about: the oppression of women. Boko Haram sincerely believes that girls are better off enslaved than educated. The terrorists' mission is no different from that of the Taliban assassin who shot and nearly killed 15-year-old Pakistani Malala Yousafzai—as she rode a school bus home in 2012—because she advocated girls' education. As I know from experience, nothing is more anathema to the jihadists than equal and educated women.

Its as if all of liberaldom have suddenly been awakened to the fact that Sharia law is an evil and oppressive system! Welcome fellow Islamophobes to the fight fro freedom.

Why they even noticed that Hotel California is owned by a the Sultan of Brunei.

The hotel is part of a group owned by the Sultan of Brunei. The Southeast Asian country has enacted laws based on strict interpretations of Islam that impose restrictions on women and gays.
Amazing! Lets hope our liberal friends stay the course and maybe the fact that all those missing nigerian girls were Christians might slip under their radar. Because up till now they haven't really cared that Islamic terrorists have been butchering and raping Christians for years all over the Islamic world, and the liberal left was more interested in protecting oppressed Muslims than in the death of freedom.

About time they pulled their head out of their ass, no?

Free Speech For the Left Only

There's only one thing the left really hates about free speech, your right to free speech. Theirs is like totally like sacred dude.

EC Chairman Warns: The Left Will Not Stop Until It Enlists the Power of Government to "Regulate" Political Speech by Conservative Media, and Even Conservative Blogs

Not even hiding it anymore.

Government officials, reacting to the growing voice of conservative news outlets, especially on the internet, are angling to curtail the media's exemption from federal election laws governing political organizations, a potentially chilling intervention that the chairman of the Federal Election Commission is vowing to fight.
Post pretty much totally ripped from Ace, but I'm still weak, so very weak. ;-)

Islamic State of Losers Lose Homs Syria: Rebellion Crushed

End result of all that terrorist red on red infighting. Assad takes the birthplace of the rebellion.

Syria Direct:AMMAN: An agreement to allow safe passage to rebels and civilians out of Old Homs has left regime opponents divided, with some saying the battle will move to the provinces and others yearning to move on with their lives after two years of a strangling encirclement of their districts.

The estimated 2,500 fighters and citizens inside the 13 rebel-controlled districts of Homs agreed in principle on Friday to hand over to the government its territory in Syria’s third-largest city. A UN-supervised departure is scheduled to begin this week, Homs Governor Talal al-Barazi told AFP on Monday, adding that the ceasefire is holding.

With a ferocious government military campaign in recent weeks and gnawing hunger from a regime blockade in place since June 2012 that allowed almost no movement in or out, regime opponents said they had little choice but to surrender.

“We must put ourselves in the place of the people who lived in the siege and saw their children die from hunger, they saw their brothers die because of infected wounds due to shelling,” Suhaib Ali, a Homs-based FSA spokesman, told Syria Direct.

Rebels inside had little choice given “the neglect from the political opposition and the international community,” Ali said.

“What would you do?” he asked.

Pussies! You were so close to achieving martyrdom?

Story Time!

Tales of Shckleford, Goldstien from the dawn of the conservative blogosphere.

The incongruity of the scene struck me as I handed Jeff a fresh bourbon. Details of his Socratic colloquy have long escaped my memory, but there were three or four guys and a girl or two in the college Republican group. This was one crucial factor in the toxic atmosphere: Jeff’s intellectual challenge to the boys amounted to showing them up in front of their girlfriends. Standing behind Jeff, meanwhile, were Ace, Rusty and Attila, who had been trying to mediate or at least keep Jeff calm.

Just as it seemed that fisticuffs were inevitable, however, Ace made a clever sarcastic jab that suddenly evaporated all the tension. You could ask Ace what he said and maybe he would remember exactly, but it was sort of an inside joke about Jeff’s rhetorical tactics.

Jeff burst out laughing hysterically and the frightening stand-off with the college Republican kids ended happily, although the kids certainly must have left wondering what it was all about.

If not for Ace they would have had to have Shackleford sit on Jeff, that would have done him in.

Kassim Al-Himidi Found Guilty in Murder of Wife Shaima Alawadi

Kassim tried to throw off police by leaving an Islamophobic note behind after he bashed his wife's skull in, didn't work.

NBC:A broken family’s screams erupted in a San Diego courtroom after a guilty verdict was announced in the trial of an Iraqi immigrant who killed his wife.
As the defendant cried out in Arabic "not guilty," his mother-in-law flailed her arms, screaming "you killed my daughter," while his two teenage sons chose opposing sides.

Jurors found Kassim Al-Himidi, 49, guilty in the death of his wife Shaima Alawadi -- a bloody, brutal beating once considered a hate crime that was, in the end, an act of domestic violence.

After Judge William McGrath handed off the verdict for reading, several family members began screaming, including the defendant's oldest son, who yelled profanities, saying he disagreed with the jury's verdict.

Somehow I doubt that CAIR will be running this verdict on their blog?

Missing Malaysia Plane Changed Course

Note the Malaysian military now says they search north and east of Vietnam is futile because...

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia's military believes a jetliner missing for almost four days turned and flew hundreds of kilometers to the west after it last made contact with civilian air traffic control off the country's east coast, a senior officer told Reuters on Tuesday.

In one of the most baffling mysteries in recent aviation history, a massive search operation for the Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777-200ER has so far found no trace of the aircraft or the 239 passengers and crew.

Malaysian authorities have previously said flight MH370 disappeared about an hour after it took off from Kuala Lumpur for the Chinese capital Beijing.

"It changed course after Kota Bharu and took a lower altitude. It made it into the Malacca Strait," the senior military officer, who has been briefed on investigations, told Reuters.

They also report that the planes transponders were off after the course change, which would put the plane on course for Indonesia. Either Banda Aceh or Medan being the nearby large cities. After you pass Indonesia there is nothing but open water for thousands of miles, the next land being Extreme Southern India then Somalia or slightly more to the North Yemen.

As for the terrorist connection and speculation about Iran, there have been recent acts of terrorism in Indochina against mostly Jewish targets attributed to Iran. But the only motive I can think of at the time is Iran attempting to assist its patron Russia by distracting the West from Ukraine. If so it worked.

The plane flying with the transponder off points very much to either foul play or Space Aliens.

The Space Aliens have denied any involvement.

If the destination was Indonesia or East Africa then you have to add various other Sunni terrorist groups to the mix of suspects as well as Iran.

There are reports that some debris near Hong Kong is being investigated.

Once the plane is found the "What?" will be known. The "Who?" may be more difficult unless there is evidence on the cockpit voice recorder indicating who took control of the plane and what their demands were.

I would think answers to those questions will be quite some time in coming.

Libyan Civil War Not Quite Over

The al-Qaeda supporting rebels of Eastern Libya -- who fought gave al-Qaeda leader Abu Yahya al-Libi a hero's funeral and started a war to topple the Gaddafi regime (aka, Bronco Bamma's freedom fighters) -- are now fighting a war for oil against the new Libyan state.

Libya on Monday stopped a North Korean-flagged tanker that had loaded oil from a rebel-held port, after naval forces briefly exchanged fire with the rebels, officials said.

They also said the government will assemble forces to "liberate" all occupied ports, raising the stakes over a blockage that has cut off vital oil revenue.

The conflict over oil wealth is increasing fears that the OPEC producer may slide deeper into chaos or even splinter as the fragile government fails to rein in dozens of militias that helped oust Muammar Gaddafi in 2011 but now defy state authority.

The rebels, who have seized three ports and partly control a fourth in the North African country, said they had dispatched forces to central Libya to deal with any government attack.

I'm like totally 100% shocked by these developments.

On the bright side, now Libyan terrorist groups have direct access to a lot of oil money. Yay!

al-Qaeda's Grand Strategy

Its worth noting that many Jawa readers are well aware of al-Qaeda's strategy.

Mary Habeck is a Visiting Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. She has been an Associate Professor of Strategic Studies at Johns Hopkins-SAIS and taught for 11 years in the Yale University History Department. She served on the National Security Council 2008-2009. A member of the Editorial Board of FPRI’s quarterly journal Orbis, she is also now a Senior Fellow of the Foreign Policy Research Institute.

This essay is a revised version of the 17th Annual Templeton Lecture on Religion and World Affairs that she delivered in Philadelphia on October 3, 2013. For previous lectures in this series, visit: http://www.fpri.org/ event-lecture-series/templeton [2]

Defining what precisely is meant by grand strategy and how al Qaeda, in particular, views grand strategy is vital for our national security. In fact, grand strategy is intertwined with every policy debate over al Qaeda that is currently ongoing in Washington, D.C.

The questions of what is al Qaeda, and who is al Qaeda have been debated since 2001. More recently, questions have arisen about affiliates and what is their relationship with al Qaeda. Is there any command and control between al Qaeda and its affiliates? What is the proper way to deal with these groups? And can we actually win against them? This talk will seek to add to this debate by offering answers to the questions of what al Qaeda is and what the group hopes to achieve.

The key to winning is not all out war against al-Qaeda. Its measured yet damaging responses to al-Qeada while preserving our financial ability and political will to fight. For instance a long war in Afghanistan or Iraq could be replace by the kick the shit out of them and leave while they're down strategy. Or even the troll them into killing each other strategy.

In the nation building strategy all they have to do is exist to win, and they get to train against the best and over time gain way too much support.

al-Qaeda attacks us in hopes that later we'll be too financially drained from insurgent conflicts to interfere when they make later moves to control territory in the Mideast or other Islamic nations.

The problem they're having is both that we're still around and also once they get control of an area, the people, mostly really Muslim people find out that they really hate living under their very strict and radical so called Caliphate.

*Anyway its a very good read and overview of al-Qaeda's grand strategy to rule the world.


*Hey just can't most boobies all the time, I need to post more cerebral stuff now and then, don't I?
