P.A. urges palestinian Arabs to “return” (h/t Free Republic)

The Palestinian Authority is planning to mark Israel’s 60th anniversary by calling on all Palestinians living abroad to converge on Israel by land, sea and air. The plan, drawn by Ziad Abu Ein, a senior Fatah operative and Deputy Minister for Prisoners’ Affairs in the Palestinian Authority, states that the Palestinians have decided to implement United Nations Resolution 194 regarding the refugees.

Article 11 of the resolution, which was passed in December 1948, says that “refugees wishing to return to their homes and live at peace with their neighbors should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible.”

And, this little ditty from the Rev…”Israel is a Dirty Word” (h/t Ace)

“There is no jihadi terrorism in Islam”

Mark Trevelyan, Security Correspondent for Reuters, writes an interesting piece on the lack of specificity of language in combating terrorism. From the standpoint of mis-identifying the enemy from the get-go, Trevelyan is correct.

But, by allowing themselves to be intimidated by apologists for Islamic supremacists who supposedly “take offense” at any reference to the religion which encourages and supports murder, martyrs, and dying for their god, Reuters and other MSM outlets are abetting those very individuals and organizations who would like nothing better than to see the death and destruction of western civilization.

At a major conference on terrorism in Brussels this week, for example, debate on how to tackle al Qaeda was punctuated by repeated arguments over the terms “jihad” and “jihadist”.

Frequently used by al Qaeda itself and by counter-terrorism specialists and in the media to denote “holy war” against the West, the word jihad signifies for most Muslims a spiritual struggle.

“You can struggle for elimination of poverty, you can struggle for education … you can struggle for something very, very positive in life,” said General Ehsan Ul Haq, former chairman of Pakistan’s joint chiefs of staff.

Now to call jihadists as terrorists is either reflective of …lack of understanding of Islam, or it is I must say an intended misuse, which again is unfortunate,” he added. “It might have been somewhat excusable in the trauma post-9/11 but I don’t think it is any more.”

Sheikh Mohammed Mohammed Ali, an Iraqi scholar, told delegates at the annual conference of the EastWest Institute think-tank: “Jihad is the struggle against all evil things in your soul…There is no jihadi terrorism in Islam.”

Wrapping Islamic terrorism in political correctness is just another example of the great struggle that our Republic faces:  the convergence of radical leftism with Islamic terrorism.

Honor Killing in Big D

Fox 4 is reporting a very disturbing story out of Irving. A double murder. The father is the suspect. And yes, it involves the religion of peace.

IRVING, Texas — A Dallas-area father may have shot his two teenage daughters to death because their Westernized clothes and behavior brought him shame, family members say.

muslim-murderer.jpgPolice are still looking for 50-year-old Yaser Said of Lewisville. Tuesday night they found his abandonded taxicab parked near an Irving hotel with his two daughters murdered in the back seat.

Investigators say either Sarah Yaser Said, 17, or Amina Yaser Said, 18, called 911 around 7:30 p.m., saying she had been shot, but could not identify her location. Police were able to trace the call to a general location, but found nothing.

An hour later, someone reported a suspicious vehicle near the Omni Mandalay hotel in Las Colinas, which turned out to be the taxi.

FOX 4 spoke with two of Said’s family members who want to remain anonymous. They say Sarah and Amina dressed in Western clothes and listened to pop music. They described Said as angry with his daughters for not acting like proper Muslim girls.

Though police have not named the motive, in some Muslim countries fathers kill their children if they feel their honor has been ruined.

The islamic society of North America sprang into action to remind us that this has absolutely nothing to do with islam.

“It has a lot to do with the culture, and nothing to do with the faith,” said Azhar Aziz of the ISNA.

Gee, I feel so much better knowing that.

The U.S. Did Not back down in Bali

Three days ago, maybe four by the time I get done here, I wrote about the U.S. caving to the demands of some third world nations wanting welfare. Link. I have since learned that I was a little quick to react. (dangit I hate when that happens) There is some behind the scenes stuff going on that may give us a little time to head off the Gorbal Warming nuts. It’s by Christopher Monckton, and it is very long and detailed. It is also worth your time if you care about the fraud of global warming. Here’s the important quote:

The day Gore spoke in Bali, I received an email (one of hundreds from all over the world in response to my article in the Jakarta Post) from one of the Port Commissioners of Washington State. He said his fellow-Commissioners, solely on the basis of Gore’s rantings, were proposing to increase the height of the sea-walls by 20 feet. Real economic and environmental harm is now being caused by these unscientific exaggerations, which have gained credence among the zombies merely by their repetition on the lips of a former Vice-President of the United States.

The US delegation did not crumble in Bali. It stood firm in the cause of right and truth and common sense. So it was not possible for the zombies to go as far as they wanted in inflicting pointless, economically-disastrous and climatically-irrelevant policies on the world. For the sake of being seen to do something while they wait for Copenhagen, they have laboriously drawn up a “Bali Roadmap”. Like the Middle East Roadmap, the Bali Roadmap is a non-map of a non-existent road to nowhere. Meantime, we have alarmed the alarmists, and that is a first step towards the dawn of truth.

There is also a list of 50 new lies the alarmists have come up with, and the truth about them. Here’s a few.

Gore needs to pretend that the situation is urgent when it is becoming increasingly plain to everyone that it isn’t. The robust corn-stalk chewers of Iowa, polled recently about election issues, ranked “global warming” so low that fewer than one in 200 thought it mattered at all.

Therefore, to whip up the flagging panic that keeps the gravy-train of “global warming” rolling, Baron Thursdi came up with a new, improved list of 50 errors and exaggerations:

• Floods in 18 countries, plus Mexico: Four errors in one. First, individual extreme-weather events cannot be attributed to “global warming”. Secondly, the number of floods is not unprecedented, though TV makes them more visible than before. Thirdly, even if the floods were caused by warming, the fact of warming does not tell us the cause. Thirdly – and it was astonishing how few of the zombies knew this – there has been no statistically-significant increase in mean global surface temperature since the last IPCC Holy Book in 2001. “Global warming” has stopped.
• The Arctic ice-cap will be gone within 5 to 7 years: Six errors in one. First, as a paper published by NASA during the conference demonstrates, Arctic warming has nothing much to do with “global warming”: instead, as numerous studies confirm, it is chiefly caused by decadal alterations in the ocean circulation affecting the region. Thirdly, it was warmer in the Arctic in the 1940s than it is today. Fourthly, thinner pack-ice is surprisingly resistant to melting, so the ice-cap will probably be still there for many years to come, even if (which is unlikely) the warming trend resumes. Fifthly, the ice-cap was probably absent during the mediaeval warm period, and almost certainly absent during the Bronze Age climate optimum, when temperatures were higher than today’s for almost 2,000 years. Sixthly, the Greenland ice sheet melted completely away 850,000 years ago. There cannot have been an Arctic ice-cap then. So the disappearance of the Arctic ice-cap, even if it occurred, would be neither unprecedented nor alarming.
• Forest fires are causing devastation: Five errors in one. First, most forest fires are caused by humans – power-lines sparking in the wind, carelessly-tossed cigarette-butts, or even arson. Secondly, individual events of this kind cannot be attributed to “global warming”. Thirdly, warmer weather is generally wetter weather, because – as the Clausius-Clapeyron relation demonstrates – the space occupied by the atmosphere can carry near-exponentially greater concentrations of water vapour as the weather becomes warmer. Fourthly, it has not got warmer since 2001, so there is no factual basis whatsoever for attributing more forest fires to warmer weather. Fifthly, the fact of warming does not tell us the cause.

Here is the rest. Thanks n2l.

Going Green. But why?

Just what is it the Greens want us to do? By most accounts we have more trees than ever before because of better managed forests and most forests being owned by the government. Trees are The Most renewable resource on this planet. In the U.S. we are not running out of trees, yet the greens want us to live like cavepeople, to save the planet. I happen to live in the forest, in a house, with indoor toilets, electricity, running water and the whole nine yards. They’ve been logging this area well over 100 years and there are still plenty of trees of many sizes because of the way the forest is managed. Yet people still want us to never cut another tree because we don’t have enough and because of the greatest scam of all, Global Warming.

So if not about a tree-scarcity, exactly what is the green “thing” about? Well, we’re trying to stop climate change. Why? Because we like the climate we have. But isn’t change considered “good” in most instances? culture, religion, education, politics, etc. Why is climate change so bad we must make radical changes in our lifestyles to prevent it?

Here’s where the hysteria comes in. There’s a has to be a promoter for every event, be it a circus or a national event. Most of us know what a promoter does. For those that don’t, I’ll explain. A promoter hypes the event, makes it seem more exciting than it really is and collects the money, and usually runs with the profits. Carnival barker comes to mind.

Al Gore makes a nice living with his “Inconvenient Truth” road show, preaching radical lifestyle change and higher taxes — scaring folks who need cars and air conditioning so they can live in places like Tennessee. (Big Al’s 20,000 square foot Tennessee house has utility bills 10 times yours and mine.) Al — who flies in a private jet — says the icecaps will melt, New York City will be under water, and all the polar bears will die if we don’t stop driving sports utility vehicles.

Do you see where I’m headed here? Woody Zimmerman covers it very well.

Read his article from the Washington Times.

Jihad Charlie Brown

Thought I would bring back a golden oldie….

Another grim milestone

from NowPublic.com…  10,000 islamic terror attacks since 9/11

In the mind-numbing aftermath of 9/11, who would have guessed that within just a few years American politicians would be campaigning on promises to ensure the comfort of incarcerated terrorists… that Hollywood writers would be generating reams of scripts replete with noble Muslim characters persecuted by fictitious American bigots… that footbaths would be making their way into airports and public universities… or that Muslim travelers would be chasing lawsuit dollars by scaring the hell out of fellow airline passengers with deliberately provocative behavior.

Welcome to this brave, new world, where even Osama bin Laden must be shaking his head over the spasm of Western butt-kissing that follows high-profile Islamic terror. Each new attack in the name of Allah seems to bring a fresh round of public groveling to the religion that inspires it – even if we can count on one hand the number of Muslims courageously calling the Islamic world to accountability for the violence. (h/t Rene’)

It is as much the responsibility of the Democratic Party to separate themselves from radical leftists as it is for moderate Muslims to separate themselves from radical Islamists.

The convergence of the radical left and radical islamists is the mortal enemy of Western democracy.

Muslim “yoots” riot in France (again)

Somebody might want to make a quick search to verify this, but flash-back to 2005, and nothing that the yoots did in the French rioting merited coverage by the MSM. If you got your news from anywhere but the right-of-center blogosphere, then there’s a good chance that you didn’t even know about it.

Compare that to the present situation involving the yoots, and the MSM is all over the story.

Anyone want to bet that it has to do with the fact that Sarkozy is a conservative?

Eight people were arrested and 21 police officers were injured — including the town’s police chief who was beaten in the face after he tried to negotiate with the rioters, a police official said on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. Foxnews.com

Interestingly enough, even Fox News did not mention the fact that the yoots are muslims.

[That is because islam is a religion of peace, and the rioters who have been quoted chanting “allah ahkbar” have nothing to do with islam.]

Get it? Got it?  Goooooood.

The two-headed threat

Is there anyone left who fails to understand the nature of the jihadist threat facing this country? Anyone other than the leadership of the democrat party, and their allies in the MSM, and supporters of Ron Paul, that is?

I present two separate perspectives for your consideration. First is an analysis from Family Security Matters on the immediate threat posed by infiltrators, and the cover given to them by an American Fifth Column.

The second focuses more on the long-term threat, generational, and demographical in its nature.

Our country is facing what I consider to be the “perfect storm.”

We have a powerful foe in radical Islamofascists who want to destroy our country. They want to eliminate our constitutional Republic, replacing it with a government run under the totalitarian tenets of Sharia Law. And as they prey on the good will of the American people, extracting money under the guise of charity for the oppressed, they have mastered the American legal system and are effectively using it against us, even as they establish enclaves of radical ideology within the borders of the United States.

We have another foe in the American Fifth Column, a group of visionless lemmings adherent to the Marxist/Leninist dictums of Socialism, who promote political correctness and multiculturalism. This group champions a mythical one-world utopia over the principles of self-sufficiency, liberty and personal freedom. They promote a caretaker government that provides as many entitlements and services as can be established through the extraction of private income while empowering that same government as the arbiter of all societal parameters regardless of the liberties granted to us under the United States Constitution.

Lastly, we have an American citizenry, who, because institutionalized education has moved away from instilling critical thinking skills in deference to special interest indoctrination, doesn’t understand the ideology behind the principles that founded our nation. Couple this with the fact that our society has grown to be incredibly narcissistic, and you achieve a populace so apathetic and unaware of the critical events taking place directly in front of their faces – in real time – that their freedoms will have already been abolished before they are motivated to defend them.

Next from Middle East Quarterly, Should Muslims Integrate into the West?

because Islamist jurists in the Arab world have considerable resources, they at times drown out or wear down more pro-assimilation voices. The collision between Western interpretations of personal freedom and some Islamist interpretations of Muslims’ rights and duties is inevitable. For mainstream Muslim jurists, Islam trumps all aspects of human activities.

Herein lays the challenge. Many ethnic and religious minorities seek to establish an autonomous sphere within multicultural societies, but only Arab Muslim jurists consider such an autonomous sphere to constitute a substitute for the liberal state itself. Many ethnic and religious minorities attempt to speak for their countries of origin through the political systems of their adopted countries, but only Arab Muslim jurists regard their Muslim nation as overstretching the boundaries of all nation-states in its political demands.

How then should liberal nation-states, using the principals of liberalism and multiculturalism as their shield, deal with individuals who resist their very existence? How can Western societies distinguish between those Muslims who seek a place for their beliefs and traditions within a pluralistic framework and those who adhere to a school committed to the destruction of that framework? Perhaps a good point of departure would be to understand that it is not veils that matter, but the individuals and ideas that are behind them.

Nuke Mecca: Buy your t-shirts today!

FOR RELEASE: IMMEDIATELY

Conservative blogging legend Nuke Gingrich has announced the launch of a new website to be published in Arabic. “Nuke Mecca“, or as translated by googletools: مكة المكرمة النووية

“Using the power of Google translation tools, I believe this will be the beginning of a new era in spreading the conservative message to the Islamic world.”

In conjunction with the kickoff of the new website, Gingrich has also announced the sale of a limited supply of “Nuke Mecca” t-shirts.

When asked if he was advocating the use of nuclear weapons against Mecca, Gingrich strongly denied any such connotation.

“In this instance, Nuke comes from the Latin root meaning “to glow.” My intention is to illuminate the muslim world with conservative principles.

Nuke Mecca is simply my nom de plume for the Arabic website version of the Nuke Gingrich franchise. I don’t believe the intention is to have any nuclear bombing of Mecca.”

/s

In a related story from the NY Post…………………

Activists with ties to the principal of the city’s controversial new Arabic-themed school are hawking T- shirts that glorify Palestinian terror, The Post has learned.

The inflammatory tees boldly declare “Intifada NYC” – apparently a call for a Gaza-style uprising in the Big Apple.

The organization selling the shirts, Arab Women Active in Art and Media, shares office space on Brooklyn’s Third Avenue with the Saba Association of American Yemenis.

Dhabah “Debbie” Almontaser, principal of the Khalil Gibran International Academy – which is scheduled to open in Brooklyn next month – is a board member and spokeswoman for Saba.

Members of AWAAM refused to comment.

But Almontaser downplayed the significance of the T-shirts.

“The word [intifada] basically means ‘shaking off.’ That is the root word if you look it up in Arabic,” she said.

“I understand it is developing a negative connotation due to the uprising in the Palestinian-Israeli areas. I don’t believe the intention is to have any of that kind of [violence] in New York City.

“I think it’s pretty much an opportunity for girls to express that they are part of New York City society . . . and shaking off oppression.”

Now, I am all for muslim women shaking off oppression. Lord knows they’ve endured centuries of oppression under the misogynistic cult of islam. But, this type of taquiya-kittman from Almontaser is completely inexcusable and unacceptable.

Great moments in sharia law

BGG (where you been?) published this story of the wonders of modern sharia.

Would you choose to live as a female in the islamic world?

Or would you choose suicide? …..

Imagine a hospital that has to open up a special wing to handle the women who are setting themselves on fire to try to end their miserable lives, end the suffering and abuse at the hands of men. Well, it’s not imaginary, it’s real and there’s probably more than one.

Rules for radicals

Update: We’ve noticed that a large number of readers have found this post looking for a download of Rules for Radicals.

To my knowledge, there isn’t a free version on the net. I have, however found Alinsky’s last interview, given in 1972 to Playboy magazine. It is a great read, and an eye-opener… Here is the pdf (takes a moment to load) alinsky_1972_interview1

+++++


alinsky.jpgWho is this man, and what does he have to do with modern leftist political tactics?

His name was Saul Alinsky, the mentor of Hillary Rodham Clinton, and the consigliere emeritus of modern liberalism. His 1971 book, Rules for Radicals, reads like the political playbook of the Soros-Clinton machine, as well as allied groups such as Moveon.org, CREW, ACORN,and others.

Alinsky was also the subject of the previously suppressed 1969 Wellesley Thesis by one Hillary Rodham.

Please feel free to download the pdf. As the election season moves into full swing, it becomes more important than ever to gain insight into our political opponents.

The thesis is long and tedious. I’ve never read a thesis that wasn’t. But, it should also be revealing.

I expect it provides a window into the mind modern democrat party and the lengths to which they will go to achieve power. And, that makes it an important read. I plan on posting some comments after I’ve read it in detail.

So, who was Saul Alinsky? Here is an interesting snapshot of his leftist holy book (h/t Slyfox):

saulalinskyrfr.jpgRules for Radicals provides the organizer with a tactical style for community organization that assumes an adversarial relationship between groups of people in which one either dominates or is dominated.

“The first rule of power tactics is: power is not only what you have but what the enemy thinks you have.”

“Wherever possible go outside the experience of the enemy. Here you want to cause confusion, fear, and retreat.”

“Make the enemy live up to their own book of rules. You can kill them with this. They can no more obey their own rules than the Christian church can live up to Christianity.”

Ridicule is man’s most potent weapon. It is almost impossible to counterattack ridicule. Also, it infuriates the opposition, who then react to your advantage.”

“The threat is generally more terrifying than the thing itself.”

“In a fight almost anything goes. It almost reaches the point where you stop to apologize if a chance blow lands above the belt.”

“Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it.”

One of the criteria for picking the target is the target’s vulnerability … the other important point in the choosing of a target is that it must be a personification, not something general and abstract.”

“The enemy properly goaded and guided in his reaction will be your major strength.”

SCHIP Put’s Us On A Slippery Slope!

SCHIP, or the State Children’s Health Insurance Program.
This program began life, innocently enough, in 1997, with a Republican controlled Congress, and Democrat President. It comes under the statutory authority of Title XXI of the Social Security Act, and was intended to provide insurance coverage for children of parents that could not afford health insurance for their children, even if the parents made too much money to apply for Medicare benefits. Congress originally funded this program for ten years, with a forty billion dollar budget, and gave states much flexibility in administering the program. They didn’t hesitate to do just that.
As you are reading this, the Senate is working on a new bill, before the current program expires on September 30. Based on early reports from the Senate, and their new proposal for a thirty five billion dollar program for five years, it would raise the tax on cigarettes by sixty one cents a pack, and provide coverage for some adults, as well. An aspect of the legislation that drew this response:

The Senate legislation expands the State Children’s Health Insurance Program beyond the original intent of the program, White House Spokesman Tony Fratto said Saturday.

“It’s clear that it will have the effect of encouraging many to drop private coverage — purchased either through their employer or with their own resources — to go on the government-subsidized program,” Fratto said. “Tax increases are neither necessary nor advisable to appropriately fund SCHIP.”

Taken from an article, Bush Veto Foreseen On Child Health Bill.
I agree that this program should exist, as it isn’t very costly in it’s current form, but the current attempt to expand this program is part of a plan, an example of incrementalism, from the long defunct HillaryCare program of the early 90’s. The liberals in our government have never given up on taking control of the health care industry in this country, but they know a bold, broad power grab, as attempted by Hillary in 1993, is an unrealistic, and unattainable goal.
Kimberley Strassel, at Opinion Journal, had an excellent piece on this issue last month.
She stated:

Schip is the first step. The program, with its $25 billion budget, was originally designed to provide insurance to only the poorest children. Democrats want to throw an additional $60 billion at it, expanding Schip’s rolls by three million. They would expand eligibility so much that as many as half joining would drop private insurance to do so. Even adults could sign up.

Next: Even as Democrats work to expand Schip to cover older Americans, they’d expand Medicare to cover younger Americans. House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman John Dingell is said to have recently floated the idea of allowing the struggling Big Three auto makers to enroll workers in Medicare at the age of 55, or 10 years early. Consider this a pilot program for dropping Medicare’s age limit overall and instantly subjecting tens of millions more Baby Boomers to the government’s tender care.

Democrats will meanwhile argue the only way to pay for Schip and other expanded programs is to gut Medicare Advantage and similar free-market reforms. See how clever? Swallow up ever more Americans into federal programs, banish any last vestiges of popular market plans, and voilà! It is Hillarycare! Only nobody ever had to use the dreaded word!

She goes on to discuss Senator Robert Bennett’s(R-Utah) proposal, Healthy American Act(S.334), which can be found in it’s entirety here. In summarizing his proposed legislation:

It all starts with tax reform that empowers the individual. From that, we can get portability, individual access, incentives for healthy behavior, and market forces. The Healthy Americans Act embraces these principles; that health care coverage can be affordable, the uninsured can be covered, and, not insignificantly, our economy will be strengthened.

Should the current SCHIP remain as is, or return to it’s original form, I could accept that. To see this program expanded, to become Hillary’s Cudzu plant, it will be a fast descent down a slippery slope, with much pain when we hit bottom.
Socialized medicine is not the answer for this nation, and it appears that it isn’t the answer for many countries that already have it. Let us continue to place our trust in a free market system, and find more strategies, like Sen. Bennett’s, that embrace what this country stands for, and helps find a viable solution to the dilemmas our health care industry faces.

*Update* From Free Thoughts. Dead Meat!

45 Muslim doctor ‘cyber-terrorists’ planned US terror.

A group of 45 Muslim doctors threatened to use car bombs and rocket grenades in terrorist attacks in the United States during discussions on an extremist internet chat site.

Cyber-terrorists: Tariq Daour, Younis Tsouli and Waseem Mughal

Police found details of the discussions on a site run by one of a three-strong “cyber-terrorist” gang.

They were discovered at the home of Younis Tsouli, 23, Woolwich Crown Court in south-east London heard.

One message read: “We are 45 doctors and we are determined to undertake jihad and take the battle inside America.

“The first target which will be penetrated by nine brothers is the naval base which gives shelter to the ship Kennedy.” This is thought to have been a reference to the USS John F Kennedy, which is often at Mayport Naval Base in Jacksonville, Florida.

Whaddisit with these doctors? Weren’t they paid enough? They need longer hours to keep their minds focused!

The Leftards are knocked sideways by these stories. All their theories fail to explain the evidence.

Keep the Anglosphere safe!

It’s More About Assimilation, Than Immigration.


Sing it, Honey!

Break out the sackcloth and ashes

Linkfest Haven, the Blogger's OasisIt’s dead, Jim. Again.

Cloture on the immigration bill failed 46-53.

On the other side of Capitol Hill, House Speaker Pelosi made the following statement, noteworthy only for its breathtaking arrogance and hebetude :

“Today, Republicans in the Senate had an historic chance to act in the interests of the American people, but chose not to.”

Umm-kay Miz Pelosi. Three out of four Americans opposed this bill. Three quarters! almost as many as opposed your trip to Syria. According to you and your ilk, the tail is supposed to wag the dog.

SwampWoman provided us with live-blogging of the voting:

10:04 – Cloture vote begins. Does Reid have a couple of Democrats ready to switch from Nay to Yea? He’ll need them.

10:11 – Webb votes against cloture, and I count 22 so far overall against, with 20 for.

10:15 – Landrieu votes no, another Democrat against, although that’s not a switch. Rockefeller stayed as a no, as well.

10:19 – Bernie Sanders and Tom Harkin voted against cloture, as did Nelson of Nebraska. Robert Byrd stayed a No, while Olympia Snowe stayed an Aye. Mark Pryor voted against cloture. Sam Brownback switched to No — very interesting.

10:20 – Norm Coleman voted against cloture. Wow.

10:26 – A majority, 53 Senators, have rejected cloture. It’s dead … again.

And now, please stand for the closing hymn and then we will proceed to cemetery….

heh.

Tony’s gone!!!!

So it’s farewell then Tony. What did you do for the British Isles – or did you in fact do anything? Charles Moore in the Telegraph has a few interesting, and for me, accurate remarks.

 

When Margaret Thatcher was forced out in November 1990, almost everyone could have given an account – favourable or unfavourable – of what she had done. “She’s put the Great back in Britain,” said some. “She’s destroyed the social fabric,” said others.

It is much harder to sum up Tony Blair in terms of what he has actually done, for good or ill. He inherited a successful, but over-regulated and overtaxed economy. That is what he leaves behind. He inherited educational failure. No change there, either. He inherited a health service struggling half-heartedly with reform. That is still the case.

In 1997, there was economic inequality, too much crime, anxiety about immigration, a battle about “multi-culturalism”, and indecision about Europe. Ten years later, snap. Even the famed peace process in Northern Ireland flowed naturally from the earlier work of John Major.

Oddly enough, it is only in the field of the constitution, in which Tony Blair never expressed much interest, that huge changes have taken place. The relationship between the judges, government and Parliament is now dangerously in flux. The United Kingdom, thanks to Europe from above and devolution from below, is starting to unpick.

True – he did the right thing on Iraq and I will always thank him for that. But at what expense to his homeland in neglecting other things needful?

Poetic Justice

More from Britain: UK Mirror

hamzahook.jpgAbu Hamza has refused any more treatment from his prison nurse after finding out the man is gay.

The nurse, nickname Queenie, has been helping to wash and dress the convicted terrorist for more than two years.

A prison source told the Mirror the full-time staffer is openly gay and has a camp voice.

Officers at Belmarsh jail are said to be surprised Hamza, 48, has not noticed before.

Linkfest Haven, the Blogger's OasisNow the cleric is claiming it is against his religion and human rights to be treated by a homosexual. The source said Hamza’s solicitor wrote to the governor demanding his client is given a new regular nurse….
The source said: “The nurse is upset about it. He has spent the last couple of years doing everything for Hamza, even wiping his bottom.” …

Egyptian-born Hamza, serving seven years for inciting murder and racial hatred, requires care because he is limited by his hook hands.

There is a kind of poetic justice in this situation for Hamza. It reminds me of an old Buddy Hackett joke. “Any time I start to feel sorry for myself, I think about about the Siamese twin, whose brother is gay, they share the same azzhole, and the boyfriend is coming over.” Heh.

Bring your marshmallows (updated)

vikingmanThe Vikings are at it again.

The Baron is reporting that the annual custom of a Midsummer witch-burning (in effigy) in Denmark to banish evil from the land will have a new guest of honor.

This year’s honoree? An effigy of Mohammed “to symbolize the need to rid Western Europe of a new kind of evil.” The group will release a video of the Midsummer bonfire.

The Baron has promised updates when available. I have a feeling that we will hear more about this.

As promised: Here is an update from Gates of Vienna

Infidelophobia©…In The Words Of The Koran!

islamic_truth.jpg
We hear from many that those of us who are suspicious of Islam, and it’s practitioners, have a phobia, that we are Islamophobes. To this I say “Bull Hockey!”
Personally, I don’t fear Islam, I despise it, and don’t view it as a true religion at all, but a cult. As with all cults, there are many genuinely nice people, with good intentions, that get fooled, and suckered into it’s beliefs.
There is, however, very strong evidence, from the mouth of Ol’Moh himself, and his disciples that added to the words in the Koran, that Islam is very fearful of other beliefs.
Therefore, to be perfectly clear, those who claim that I, and many others, have a phobia towards Islam, the opposite is true. Those who follow Islam are Infidelophobes©.
Here are some examples:

Sura (5:51) – “O you who believe! do not take the Jews and the Christians for friends; they are friends of each other; and whoever amongst you takes them for a friend, then surely he is one of them; surely Allah does not guide the unjust people.”

Sura (5:80) – “You will see many of them befriending those who disbelieve; certainly evil is that which their souls have sent before for them, that Allah became displeased with them and in chastisement shall they abide.” Those Muslims who befriend unbelievers will abide in hell.

Sura (3:28) – “Let not the believers Take for friends or helpers Unbelievers rather than believers: if any do that, in nothing will there be help from Allah…”

Sura (3:118) – “O you who believe! do not take for intimate friends from among others than your own people…”

Muslim(19:4294)-“When you meet your enemies who are polytheists [Christians], invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withhold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them … If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them” Reference.

One of the most influential Islamic scholars of the modern age, Egyptian Sayyid Qutb, says that Muslims have a duty to overthrow non-Islamic governments by violent means. He explains:

“Islam is not merely a belief, so that it is enough merely to preach it. Islam, which is a way of life, takes practical steps to organize a movement for freeing man. Other societies do not give it [Islam] any opportunity to organize its followers according to its own method, and hence it is the duty of Islam to annihilate all such systems, as they are obstacles in the way of universal freedom. Only in this manner can the way of life be wholly dedicated to Allah, so that neither any human authority nor the question of servitude remains, as is the case in all other systems which are based on man’s servitude to man.” [Quoted from Andrew Bostom’s The Legacy of Jihad]

Sura (9:29) – Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.

Sura (9:30) – And the Jews say: Ezra is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!

Sura (48:29) – Muhammad is the messenger of Allah. And those with him are hard (ruthless) against the disbelievers and merciful among themselves

Sura (61:4) – Surely Allah loves those who fight in His way

Sura (66:9) – O Prophet! Strive against the disbelievers and the hypocrites, and be stern with them. Hell will be their home, a hapless journey’s end.

Of course, I could continue on ad infinitum, this is just a short list to illustrate the phobia that Islam has for us proud infidels.
Hope someone takes a snap shot of this.

Moral equivalency at UPI

I ran across this article on the UPI site

How much difference is there really, then, between members of the Christian Right who justify the bombing of abortion clinics and Islamic extremists who are ready to justify suicide bombing?

Oh, give me a break.

So, tell us UPI, is there really any difference between members of the Western Press and Soviet-era media organs like Pravda, or contemporary agenda journalism as practiced by al-Jazeera?

Devout belief of any kind is a two-edged sword. It offers believers a sense of identity and community and gives them meaning and purpose in what is unquestionably a chaotic and overwhelming world. Yet throughout history, religion has also been a major source of human conflict. How many more lives will the “virtuous” claim as they do what they consider God’s work?

The sad truth is that the author of this wretched piece of moral equivalency probably “feels” like he is taking an unbiased look at both Christianity and Islam.

Linkfest Haven, the Blogger's OasisIt is useless to confront him with facts — because facts conflict with his world view. But, if the Pravda or al-Jazeera comparisons fail to get his attention, perhaps comparing the Unibomber, modern-day eco-terrorism, or the writings of Al Gore with the suicide/homocide extremism of the Islamic supremists might serve the purpose.
