Sandcrawler PSA: Playing With Fire Makes You Pee The Bed

Or so my Grandma always told me.

A SUV full of teenagers crashed in Idaho after one of the passengers lit the driver's armpit hair on fire with a lighter, authorities said Wednesday.

All five young people in the Ford Bronco were hurt in the crash Sunday and received medical treatment, the Ada County Sheriff's Office said.

Two of the passengers, ages 15 and 16, were thrown from the vehicle, but none of the five suffered life-threatening injuries.

The sheriff's department said the rollover occurred after a 16-year-old boy was goofing off in the front seat and lit 18-year-old Tristian Myers' armpit hair on fire while Myers was driving. The crash happened at about 5:30 a.m. in southeast Boise.

Sandcrawler PSA: Assad Pre-Occupation is Problematic

Failure to be pragmatic about Assad's usefulness against ISIS is counterproductive and also pretty retarded.

Today's crisis—that which obligated the President to speak on September 10—has its roots in the March 2011 decision of Syrian President Bashar al Assad to respond with lethal violence to peaceful demonstrators seeking his protection from police brutality. The Assad regime initially escorted Al Qaeda in Iraq operatives from Syria to Iraq between 2003 and 2011, but its violently sectarian response to peaceful protest drew much of what was left of the seemingly beaten Al Qaeda in Iraq back to Syria, where it was joined by foreign fighters and split into two groups: the Islamic State and the Nusra Front. Both groups compete with the nationalist opposition to Assad—indeed, the Islamic State engages in de facto collaboration with the regime in western Syria to erase the nationalists, even as Assad and the caliph clash in eastern Syria over oil fields and air bases. And it was from secure bases in eastern Syria that the Islamic State launched its recent assault into Iraq, taking advantage of the depredations of yet another illegitimate, sectarian leader: Nouri al Maliki.
True dat,

BUT Assad has not been removed, which is a fact on the ground. Another fact n the ground is that ISIS is a direct threat to American interests and Assad is not. In fact he can be an ally against ISIS. Which is why he's allowed ISIS to get to this point. To make himelf needed.

Continue to insist that Assad go and you'll lose Russia, Iran and most of the Iraqi south's support.


Now we'll not need Russia, Assad nor Iran and the Shia say if we're willing to put in troops and do the killing ourselves. But we're not. So in this case we're cutting off our nose to spite our face.

Sure it leaves a bad taste in our mouths, but so does American troops fighting and dying for yet another ME sh*thole.

So use Assad and all ISIS opposition. Then make popcorn.

if ISIS Isn't Islamic The Pope Isn't Cathlolic

Or some variation on that here at New Republic:

s ISIS slaughters its way though Syria and Iraq, it became inevitable that we’d hear from apologists who claim that ISIS is not in fact “true Islam,” and that its depredations are due to something other than religious motivation. Those motivations, say the apologists, are political (usually Western colonialism that engenders resentment), cultural (societal tradition), or anything other than religion.

massacreinsultislam.jpg

These apologists, of course, which now include President Obama, are motivated by a desire to avoid criticizing religion at all costs—especially Islam.....

Actually, what people like Obama, Paul, Volsky, and Jenkins consider “true” faith is this: “faith that promotes the kind of behavior that I like.” So, as do all believers, the apologists pick and choose from scripture the dictates that they find congenial, ignoring the bad ones.

Like Rusty once said, Islam is what Muslims believe it is, so to the extent that Muslims in ISIS and those who support it believe it represents Islam, it represents Islam. Its that simple.

Read the rest.

Prince William Hits it Again!

The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cambridge have an heir but are also expecting a Spare.

Kensington Palace said that - as when the duchess was pregnant with Prince George - she was suffering from "very acute morning sickness" and was being treated by doctors at the palace.

Prince William and Catherine's second baby will become fourth in line to the throne, behind older brother Prince George, who is 13 months old.

The palace said the Queen and both families were delighted with the news.

Boston Blogger Becomes ISIS Media Head

American Thinker:

Yet another American is suspected of joining ISIS and using skills acquired in this country to advance the goal of a global caliphate. Ahmad Abousamra, a graduate of Northeastern University in Boston with a degree related to computer technology, is suspected of being the social media manager of ISIS and is on the FBI’s Most Wanted List.
Ahmad Abousamra is a long time participant in the Cyber Jihad.

Jawa Report first ran his addition to the most wanted list in December of last year.

He is a long time associate of convicted terrorist Tarek Mehanna, who still maintains that he's, you know, totally innocent, convicted, he claims, of "thought crimes."

20214-akbar.jpg

Thought crimes, as in when two US soldiers were dragged through the streets and burned in Iraq he called it..

There is still an online campaign to free Mehanna.

Here are all the Jawa Report posts that reference Abousamra.

Another known associate is convicted terrorist Daniel Maldanado.

Both Mehanna and Ahmad Abousamra cut their radical teeth so to speak under the guidance of Sharon Imam Muhammad Masood who was later deported to Pakistan for visa fraud.

With Masood starting in on Ahmad Abousamra as early as age 14.

I would just like to add this comment from Rusty:

The charge is yet another indication that internet jihadis are often dangerous and should be taken seriously.
The online Jihad is just not speech, its often times advocacy and material support for the most extreme and terrorist organizations on Earth. Terrorists who are at war against all of us. Tolerating it as just thought crimes leads to what we have now in Syria and Iraq. Its just as, if not more dangerous in the long run as the car bomb on the field of combat.

The Jihad must have recruits it must be promoted and that is where people like Daniel Maldanodo, Terek Mehanna and Ahmad Abousamra become not just a a bother, but a truly dangerous aspect of the Islamofascist war against all who would stand against an extreme sixth century caliphate like the one ISIS is creating in Iraq and Syria.

These Aren't The Moderate Opposition We're Looking For

Pajamas Media:

As the Obama administration struggles to address the threat from ISIS and plans to go to Congress in coming weeks to up its commitment against ISIS in Syria and Iraq, multiple media reports indicate that the US-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA) is operating openly with ISIS and other designated terrorist groups. And yet financial and military support for the FSA is the keystone to the administration’s policy in Syria.

Last week the Washington Post reported on the Syrian ‘rebel’ takeover of the Golan Heights Quneitra border crossing with Israel (where I reported from last year), with the ‘rebels’ capturing the UN peacekeepers stationed at the crossing. The Post noted:

The United Nations gave no further details, but an Israeli military spokesman told CNN that the captors are suspected to be members of al-Qaeda-affiliated Jabhat al-Nusra, which has been fighting alongside more-moderate, Western-backed rebels for control of the area.
The “more-moderate, Western-backed rebels” fighting alongside with Jabhat al-Nusra the Post was referring to, but didn’t dare name, was none other than the FSA.

This is not the only time the FSA has been caught allied with US-designated terrorist groups. Just a month ago the New York Times quoted a ‘rebel’ field commander saying that the FSA had joined ISIS and Jabhat al-Nusra in attacking a border post in Lebanon:

Reached by phone in Arsal, Abu Osama, a member of Mr. Jomaa’s brigade, said that the sole purpose of Saturday’s attacks was to secure the release of Mr. Jomaa and that they were carried out as a combined operation involving fighters from the Free Syrian Army, the Nusra Front and ISIS.
The Times report was quick to note that Abu Osama’s claim could not be confirmed, no doubt because that fact would be devastating to the Obama administration’s ongoing narrative about the “moderate, vetted” FSA. But the facts about the true nature of the FSA are getting harder to conceal.
As they say, Read the Rest.

Report: Steven Sotloff Beheaded


If true, prayers for his family.

Update by Howie: I have obtained a copy of the Site Institute's copy of the video. I can confirm that Steven Sotloff was murdered.


And he didn't do well with it, attempting to struggle.

The murder is committed by the same UK Jihadi who murdered James Foley. He complains especially about ISIS losing Mosul dam. At the end he threatens the life of UK citizen David Cawthorne Haines.

Again ISIS cut the worst parts of the video.

Jawa report has obtained a second copy of the video with no site watermark.

I'm tempted not to run it, but the link is here for those who must see the brutality of ISIS for themselves.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Sotloff family at this time and also to the family of Mr. Haines and our brothers in the UK.

Mormons Behead Woman For Apostasy

No wait!

But if Ms Kelly thinks she's an obedient Mormon, her Church leadership does not. She was excommunicated in June for founding a campaign to ordain women to the priesthood.

"You know, normally excommunication in our Church is for really grave sins like murder and child abuse," she says. "I was excommunicated for stating a fact, which is that men and women are not equal in our Church."

I keep getting my religions mixed up, they just decided not to talk to her anymore. Its almost like a beheading.

And it seems the world is finally coming around to our view that Islamic Terror Propaganda is something to be fought actively. We've noticed that providers, especially Google has been more cooperative in removing ISIS propaganda lately. Since Obama has acted in Iraq. Good for them. Not only are they taking down the Foley Murder videos they are erasing all traces from Google's Cache.

But lets get one thing clear, this is NOT President Obama's fault.

Evil people do evil things. ISIS are evil. We must fight evil. Its that simple.

Sandcrawler PSA: Target Rich Enviroment

Bomb here!

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to go through training as an ISIS terrorist? Or better yet, where you would go to find such advanced training? All you have to do to find the answer to these questions is turn to the nearest ISIS media twitter account and click on that bright blue Justpaste.it link. Let’s take a look at the photos posted in July showing one of the Islamic State’s training camps in Ninewa Province and see what we can learn.

ISIS Are Proud of Their Atrocities

Rusty asks that we read Ace's post on the James Foley murder.

In previous wars, America has demonized its opponents, claiming they've committed unspeakable atrocities. (It's an odd and disturbing fact that America never accused the Nazis of the Holocaust until after the war had been won, for fear of making it seem like a "War for Jews.")

As far as I know this is the first war where our enemies are so demonic that they proudly walk up to the camera and commit their atrocities as a commercial advertisement.

Even the Nazis exterminated the Jews in relative secret. (Not to claim that Germans didn't know something bad was going on -- just to say that even the Nazis realized such barbarity could not be carried out in the open.)

These people are true psychopaths.

Rusty has pointed out for years that we punish war crimes, while the Taliban, al-Qaeda and ISIS celebrate war crimes.

The only beef I really have with Ace's post is, These people are true psychopaths. It might have written as, These people are truly evil.

Because that's how I see Islamic terrorists. As the most evil thing currently manifest on this Earth.

Michael Brown's Autopsy Inconsistent With Witness Statements

(Hat Tip: @RedSteeze)

BROWN-autopsy.jpg

From The New York Times:

Michael Brown, the unarmed black teenager who was killed by a police officer, sparking protests around the nation, was shot at least six times, including twice in the head, a preliminary private autopsy performed on Sunday found.

One of the bullets entered the top of Mr. Brown's skull, suggesting his head was bent forward when it struck him and caused a fatal injury, according to Dr. Michael M. Baden, the former chief medical examiner for the City of New York, who flew to Missouri on Sunday at the family's request to conduct the separate autopsy. It was likely the last of bullets to hit him, he said.

Mr. Brown, 18, was also shot four times in the right arm, he said, adding that all the bullets were fired into his front.

What this proves is that 1) Brown was facing the officer and not running away as some witnesses have claimed, and 2) Brown did not have his arms raised in the air, as some witnesses have claimed.

In fact, all these wounds are consistent with Officer's Wilson claim that Brown was charging at him when he fired.

UPDATE: For those who claim the article says there were no close contact shots fired, read it again. It says:

The bullets did not appear to have been shot from very close range because no gunpowder was present on his body. However, that determination could change if it turns out that there is gunshot residue on Mr. Brown's clothing, to which Dr. Baden did not have access..

Italy Stands Up to Terrorist Imam

And shows him the door.

Gazzetta del Sud.
Rome, August 5 - Interior Minister Angelino Alfano on Tuesday ordered an imam expelled from Italy for incitement to anti-Semitic hatred. "Oh Allah, count them one by one and kill them all," the Moroccan imam, Raoudi Albdelbar, allegedly preached in a Friday sermon last month in a mosque in the northern city of San Donà di Piave, near Venice. His videotaped sermon was released by the Washington, DC-based Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which was founded by a former Israeli intelligence officer and an Israeli-born American political scientist. The interior ministry expelled the imam for "seriously disturbing the peace, endangering national security, and religious discrimination" after reports of the sermon and the videotape surfaced in Milan-based center-right daily Libero. "Uttering anti-Semitic sermons that explicitly incite to violence and sectarian hatred is not acceptable," Alfano said. "May my decision in this case be of warning to all those who think you can preach hatred in Italy". The Muslim community in the Veneto region approved of the minister's decision. "Islam is a religion on peace. Those who preach death must not be allowed inside the mosques," said Bouchaib Tanji, who is the president of the Veneto Islamic Federation and of the Assalam (Peace) association.
Here is the sermon that got the Imam expelled.

UK Bank Sanctions Terrorist

But it wasn't because of the UK government enforcing the law as in when the US freezes a terrorists assets through the Department of Treasury OFAC. It was due to the banks enforcing terrorist designations despite the governments failure to do so.

In late July, HSBC, a British multinational bank, closed the bank accounts of Anas Al-Tikriti, a prominent British Islamist activist, and his family. HSBC also closed down the bank accounts of the Cordoba Foundation, of which Tikriti is the Director, and the Finsbury Park Mosque.

In response to enquiries, the bank simply stated that to continue providing services would be outside the bank's "risk appetite."

This latest round of bank account closures has come as a surprise to counter-terrorism experts and much of the media, who note that the Cordoba Foundation and the Finsbury Park Mosque have enjoyed strong political support in the past.

Just a few weeks previously, HSBC also closed the accounts of the Ummah Welfare Trust, a leading British Islamist charity that has previously partnered with the Al Salah Islamic Association, described by the U.S. Treasury Department as "one of the largest and best-funded Hamas charitable organisations in the Palestinian territories." Senior Hamas officials have confirmed that Al Salah is "identified with us."

Anas Al-Tikriti, a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood in Britain, had his bank account, along with that of his wife and two children, shut down by HSBC. Tikriti has been described as "one of the shrewdest UK-based Brotherhood activists … [who] has sought to persuade Western governments that they should fund Brotherhood groups as moderate alternatives to al-Qaeda."

Tikriti is also a vocal supporter of the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, and he has regularly hosted a program on the Arab TV satellite station, Al-Hiwar, founded by Azzam Tamimi, Hamas's "special envoy" to the UK. Tamimi, in 2004, told the BBC that he would become a suicide bomber if he "had the opportunity," and described self-sacrifice for Palestine as "a noble cause."

Anas Al Tikriti (far left), a vocal supporter of Hamas, has met with President Obama. (See Picture)

In an interview with the Muslim Brotherhood's official website after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, Tikriti affirmed "the right of the Iraqis to engage in legitimate resistance against foreign occupation." He also has stated that the decision by the Muslim Council of Britain to boycott Holocaust Memorial Day was a "principled stand."

In response to HSBC's closure of his bank account, Tikriti claimed that, "HSBC has targeted my family because of my activity in defence of Gaza against the barbaric aggression of the Zionists" and because of his efforts to "oppose the military coup in Egypt."

While many would dispute Tikriti's conclusions, his instincts might be right. The one thing that connects Tikriti with the Cordoba Foundation, the Finsbury Park Mosque and the Ummah Welfare Trust is evidence of their support for the Muslim Brotherhood and the designated terrorist group, Hamas.

Thanks to The Lid via , I can't wait to say this,

Stable Hand!

Dueling Atrocities

Yesterday a defector from the Assad regime called Caesar released a report on the Assad's regime, its eliminating its opponents on an industrial scale.

At Hospital 601, not far from the presidential palace in Damascus, Syrian guards ran out of space to store the dead and had to use an adjoining warehouse where military vehicles were repaired.

A forensic photographer working for Syria's military police walked the rows and took pictures of the emaciated and disfigured corpses, most believed to be anti-Assad activists. Numbers written on the bodies and on white cards, the photographer said, told regime bureaucrats the identities of the deceased, when they died and which branch of the Syrian security services had held them.

U.S. investigators who have reviewed many of the photos say they believe at least 10,000 corpses were cataloged this way between 2011 and mid-2013. Investigators believe they weren't victims of regular warfare but of torture, and that the bodies were brought to the hospital from the Assad regime's sprawling network of prisons. They were told some appeared to have died on site.

The report comes complete with graphic images of the dead and highlighted evidence of torture. And Assad's forces to torture. I've seen videos of them chopping off wounded Jihadi's fingers and general abuse of corpses and the living. I've seen Assad's forces dumping Jihadi bodies by the dozen into ravines and rivers. In general they are pretty brutal..

The full report is here(pdf). And embedded her at the Guardian.

What a coincidence ISIS is also killing on an industrial scale and yesterday released a new video to prove just how efficient their genocide against the Iraqi Shia can be.

Near the end they are killing people and pushing them into the river. I guess to poison the water down stream. The dock they push the victims from is soaked in blood.

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.

Haram!

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.

Where's Vinnie?

He's in Denver pushing herb on President Obama.

"Do you want to hit this?" a man asked President Barack Obama in a bar in Denver Tuesday night. The president laughed but didn't indulge.

Possibly turning down the herb was a mistake? Its easier to bomb people when you can't remember bombing them.

After all he can't be any less informed, can he?

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.

Sweet Jesus!

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?

Keep your Flag Mr. Tran, its teh awesome!

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."
