It’s not islamophobia, it’s islamorealism

“And when I look at what’s happening in Libya, this big song and dance, whether this was a terrorist attack or a protest, and you just want to scream for god’s sake, are you kidding me, the last time we were attacked like this was the USS Cole which was a prelude … to 9/11. And you’re sending FBI to investigate. I hope you’re sending in your best clandestine warriors who will go in to exact revenge and let the world know that the United States will not be attacked on its own soil, that its ambassadors will not be murdered and that the United States will not do nothing about it.”  Lara Logan, CBS 60 Minutes, keynoting the 2012 BGA Annual Luncheon.

Afghanistan: Time to go

Michael Yon has some interesting comments regarding the war in Afghanistan …

It is clear that this war will end poorly.  Time to cut losses.

Our continued losses in Afghanistan are for nothing.  We should continue with a smaller presence to harass and kill terrorists, and losses from that are expected and part of the fight.  But the ongoing larger war is going nowhere.  We have been there since 2001.  This is 2012.  There is no vaguely discernible end.  We should look at Afghanistan as a century-long project, to be put on a far backburner.  The United States has problems to deal with at home.

OBL – Dead

“Four helicopters swooped in to the compound and the Navy Seals fought a close quarters gunbattle. They ordered bin Laden to surrender, but the 54-year-old who had vowed he would not be caught alive, refused.

Sources said standard procedure in a case like this would be for the Navy Seals to “double tap” bin Laden, shooting him twice in the head to make sure he was dead. His son, Khalid, was also killed in the raid.

At the conclusion of the firefight, bin Laden’s body was quickly taken away by U.S. forces for a DNA test to confirm his identity.

Bin Laden’s DNA was matched with that of one of his sisters who died in Boston and whose brain was kept by the United States. Then he was quickly buried at sea. “

ABC News

Where there’s smoke

Is Barack Obama a muslim?

Does it matter?

I present this news story from Pakistan for your consideration …

Minister of State for Industries Ayatullah Durrani, who belongs to the ruling Pakistan People”s Party, said the upcoming Eid-ul-Fitr festival, expected to be observed on September 11, would be a “golden opportunity” for Obama to offer Eid prayers and declare himself the leader of all Muslims.

“In this way, all the problems of the Muslim world would be solved,” Durrani told The Nation newspaper.

Durrani, a former member of the Pakistan Ideological Council, contended that the Muslim world is in “dire need” of a Caliph and occupying this distinguished slot would provide Obama “exemplary titles” like “Mullah Barack Hussain Obama” or “Allama Obama”.

It matters.

Traitor Adam Gadahn captured

Update (thanks n2l):  It’s not him

from NY Daily News, Helen Kennedy

Adam Gadahn, the treasonous Californian Al Qaeda leader who has long been on Washington’s Most Wanted list, was nabbed in Pakistan Sunday – a huge victory.

After some confusion in the intial reports, the Associated Press quoted Pakistani officials confirming the arrest.

Gadahn was bagged just hours after releasing a new internet video urging American Muslims to go on shooting sprees like Maj. Nidal Hasan’s at Fort Hood last year.

He is the first American to be charged with treason since World War II.

If convicted, he faces the death penalty.

Known in Al Qaeda videos as “Azzam the American” or Azzam al-Amereeki, Gadahn was born in Oregon to a Jewish family.

His hippie father converted to Christianity before his son was born, changing the family name from Pearlman to Gadahn.

Adam Gadhan was homeschooled in southern California. He converted to Islam at 17 and moved to Pakistan in 1998 at 20.

Intelligence officials say he joined up with al Qaeda after 9/11 and attended terrorist training camps in Afghanistan.

He became Osama bin Laden’s top propagandist, appearing in numerous internet videos calling for the destruction of America starting in 2004.

Charged with treason in 2006, he is believed to report directly to bin Laden’s right-hand man, Ayman al Zawahri.

Good news, and a nice win in the campaign against man-caused disasters.

Too bad this news got out so quickly, though.

I would have preferred a few weeks of intel gathering before the capture became public knowledge.  Now, if Holder’s DOJ has their way, we can expect the sumbich to lawyer up while he receives his Miranda rights, and the best legal defense that the public can afford.

The judgement to lead

As Taleban fighters continue their surge toward the Pakistani capital of Islamabad, the prospects of Islamic terrorists coming into the possession of nuclear weapons has never been closer. The gap, in fact, is a mere 60 miles.

The “test” that Joe Biden warned about may be upon us.

“Mark my words…… With the next, first six months of this administration, if we win, they’re going to — we’re going to face a major international challenge. Because they’re going to want to test him, just like they did young John Kennedy. They’re going to want to test him.”

Instead of placating the radical Left by picking a fight with the previous administration over the definition of “torture,” our new president might be forced to employ his considerable skill on the security task at hand.  And, if he is unsuccessful in “mending fences with our enemies,”  he may have to consider acting in the security interests of the Free World by securing the nuclear stockpile.

A year ago, candidate Obama told us that he was very capable of doing this. … “Foreign policy is the area where I am probably most confident that I know more and understand the world better than Senator Clinton or Senator McCain.”

No big surprise if you don’t remember this. It was understandably obscured by the other comments he made at that same San Francisco fundraiser — his famous “clinging to guns and religion” statement. (I mean, really, who can doubt that DHS’s report on right-wing extremism is any different than Obama’s own true feelings about conservatives?)  Obama went on to say that among the three candidates for President, he alone possesses “the judgment, the temperament to ask the right questions, to weigh the costs and benefits of military action, who insists on good intelligence, who is not going to be swayed by the short-term politics.”  source

What a piece of work, this man.  Perhaps he remembers making these statements.  Let us hope that his recollection is better than the statements he made regarding Cuba as recently as 2004, something that he described last week as happening “eons ago.”

Although Mr. Obama has been quick to blame many of the problems of the nation on his predecessor, one thing he inherited that is in good condition is our military.  Their bravery and mettle may have to bear the brunt of Obama’s “test.”

They, as well as he, are in my prayers.

Friday Linkfest

In the town of Nazareth, muslims have erected a banner at the entrance of the plaza in front of the Basilica of the Annunciation. The banner declares that allah had no son. “He begetteth not nor was he begotten.” link

I couldn’t agree more. There is absolutely nothing about islam that is comparable to Jesus Christ. Anyone who claims allah and God are different names for the same One True God have been deceived. The Lord said, “By their fruits you shall know them.”.

Here is a quick stroll through today’s headlines. Decide for yourself.

The Taliban have blown up more than 100 girls’ schools in Swat in the past 14 months. The destruction of schools and recent threats to teachers and students have forced over 50,000 girls out of schools. Link

Photographs Released By The Mumbai Police Reveals Shocking Truths of the recent Mumbai Terrorist Attacks :: Sexual humiliation of Guest, Esp. Foreigners, before killing them...Link

Officials in The Netherlands have admitted that their biggest mistake was being politically correct when it comes to Islam. They have gone as far as saying “to become Dutch, you must in principle give up your old nationality.” Read more

Both Iran and its Hamas proxy in Gaza have been busy this Christmas week showing Christendom just what they think of it. But no one seems to have noticed.

On Tuesday, Hamas legislators marked the Christmas season by passing a Shari’a criminal code for the Palestinian Authority. Among other things, it legalizes crucifixion. Link

Channel 4 was rebuked by the Government yesterday for its decision to broadcast an address by the President of Iran as the channel’s alternative Christmas message.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office said that providing a platform for Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who has called the Holocaust “a myth”, would cause widespread offence, despite the conciliatory tone of his speech. Read more

Imagine the UN appointing David Duke to report on how Blacks are victimizing whites, or Hugo Chavez to report on American foreign policy, or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad to investigate whether the Holocaust occurred….

Well the UN has done something comparable by appointing Richard Falk as its supposedly impartial “rapporteur” on Israeli actions in the Palestinian territories. Link
