Three on a match

threeonamatch.jpgThree stories today have served the purpose of jerking me out of my post election doldrums. While I’ve been spending valuable time and energy against our political opponents, I’ve completely taken my eye off of the ball, and allowed my dislike for the tactics of the political leftists to occupy my time.

I’ve also spent a lot of time over at NowPublic. That time spent has not been a total waste, as I’ve managed to post news stories of interest, as well as respond to many of the more ridiculous claims of the leftists. Interestingly enough, I’ve discovered that as a rule, the leftists are uncomfortable with being put in the position of having to defend the indefensible, and support the unsupportable. In that respect, it has been time well spent, and I encourage many of you to drop by NowPublic and join the fight. The opportunity to have an effect on the news of the day is something that I think is worthwhile, especially in the arena of politics, where public perception is the reality. The leftists must be challenged in this arena if we on the right can ever hope to get a fairer shake in the electronic media.

First, a print story from CNN :

At a recent debate over the battle for Islamic ideals in England, a British-born Muslim stood before the crowd and said Prophet Mohammed’s message to nonbelievers is: “I come to slaughter all of you.”

“We are the Muslims,” said Omar Brooks, an extremist also known as Abu Izzadeen. “We drink the blood of the enemy, and we can face them anywhere. That is Islam and that is jihad.”

Next, an analysis of jihad in Pakistan by Stephen Schippert, called Smoke of the Horizon, and posted over at Redneck’s Revenge.

It is believed that the Taliban-al-Qaeda alliance in Pakistan has amassed a force of fighters that is over 200,000 strong, organized principally around seven key terrorist leaders, including key local al-Qaeda commander Faqir Mohammed, who escaped the US strike in Bajur mentioned above.

With news that Afghani intelligence agents captured “one of the most high-profile Taliban spokesmen,” Mohammad Hanif (aka Abdul Haqiq), it is the latest indicator that the vast majority of captures and strikes against Taliban and al-Qaeda forces operating in or from Pakistan’s own territory have come from American, Afghani or NATO operations. With the September release of virtually all imprisoned al-Qaeda operatives by Pakistan, the Musharraf government is clearly loathe to restock its prison system with these who have clear designs on his demise and the establishment of an Islamic State of Pakistan, complete with the existing nuclear arsenal of the only nuclear-armed Muslim nation in the world.

And finally, one of the most powerful videos I’ve seen, UK Channel 4’s Undercover Mosque.

Update: 

Dr Mohammed Naseem, from Birmingham Central Mosque, said: “It is disturbing that Channel Four focuses on these extremists who do exist in all kinds of societies.

“If you look at areas of the extreme Christian right you will find similar views.” link UmmahNewsLinks

CAIR: Airport security rules shouldn’t apply to us

A week or so after the TSA took over passenger screening duties at US airports, the Mrs. and I went on a short business/pleasure trip to Las Vegas. Everyone was still kind of wary of airplane travel, and the extra security precautions seemed to us to be quite reasonable in light of the seriousness of the threat. The first rule was to arrive at least one hour early for the flight, and to be prepared for long lines in the screening area.

It was an early morning departure, and from our rural home to the airport meant that we had to leave the house about 5:00 am to get there on time. We didn’t get away until about 5:20, and even though I drove like a bat to try and make up the time, we arrived at the check in only 45 minutes before the scheduled departure. TSA failed to see the humor in the situation. They had no sense of humor at all. I was searched, had to strip to my shorts, my luggage was searched, time passed, and our scheduled flight left without us. TSA said we should have gotten there earlier. Tough noogies. Anyway, we had to fly stand-by the rest of the way with a hellacious layover in Atlanta, finally arriving in Las Vegas around one in the morning. Luggage was nowhere to be found. The flight from Hell was a lesson to us. “Be on time”

Since then, we haven’t been late to arrive at the airport at least an hour, sometimes two hours before our scheduled flights. It’s a pain in the ass — a necessary pain in the ass, I guess — all because of mohammedan terrorists who wanted to kill themselves and as many Americans as possible by flying airliners into American buildings.

So when a group of mohammedans coming to America from Saudi Arabia shows up to the airport late, you might expect that they would be searched, have to strip down to their shorts, have their luggage searched, be forced to take a later flight, and endure a flight from Hell. You would be wrong.

Claiming they were unfairly profiled, a group of Michigan Muslims said today that they were not allowed to board a flight to Detroit while returning home from a pilgrimage to Saudi Arabia.

At a news conference this morning at a mosque in Dearborn, they said they were unfairly treated because of their religion and background.

Perhaps one of the mohammedans might shed some light on this unfairly profiled business. Because, the fact is, when you don’t follow the rules, you damn sure deserved to be fairly profiled. The only reason we have to go through all of the time and expense of all of the extra airport security is because of mohammedan terrorists. So, if mohammedans don’t follow the rules, then they should expect to get the same security examination that the rest of us would have to endure.

The mohammedan reaction to being told that they have to follow the rules is very predictable: CAIR et al seethes, whines, and compains about bigotry, intolerence, yada, yada, yada:

The conference was organized by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim group that said it will represent the group of Muslims in any possible legal action against Northwest. The committee has been active in recent months in fighting what they see as profiling of Muslims by airlines.

Dawud Walid, head of the Michigan branch of the committee, said the returning pilgrims were “denied passage for no legitimate reason.”

The CAIR bears remind me of a bunch of spoiled children who resent being told that they are not unique or special, and that the rules DO in fact apply to them, just like they apply to everybody else. Not because anyone wants to single them out for bad treatment, but because the people who make the rules understand the consequenses of NOT following the rules. Northwest Airlines and the TSA should tell them: “Tough Noogies. Next time – BE ON TIME”.

A month or so ago, US Airways was informed that CAIR and the mohammedans would boycott them because of similar insensitive behavior. I imagine that they are now, without a doubt, the world’s safest airline.
