The Great Satan


American Imperialism

American Hegemony

Uh, What Did You Say Khomeini Did To His Leftist Revolutionary Allies?


Very interesting analysis from Nelson Ascher at Europundits:


The Jewish and Christians Gnostics, the Bogomils, Cathars, the Middle Age millenarians in general etc. were all deeply dualistic.

According to Norman Cohn, in his brilliant “Cosmos, Chaos and the World to Come”, the root of all this is to be found in Zoroastrian Persia. Probably the early, pre-exilic Judaism was neither dualistic nor apocalyptic. It was during their Mesopotamian exile, when the Babylonians were defeated by the Persians, that the Jews came under the influence of those ideas and incorporated part of them in some of their sects from where they were passed on to Christianity and Islam.

The influence of dualism on both of the Western World’s greatest and most widespread religions (Christianity and Islam) was enhanced by their contacts with other, independent or semi-independent, religious movements, such as Manichaeism whose founder, by the way, was also a Persian.Thus, Western religions came to be marked in a more important way than those of the rest of the world by the notion of this cosmic fight between two opposite principles, whatever we call them. And so, it wouldn’t altogether be an exaggeration to state that Christianity and Islam are religions composed of two, not necessarily identical, halves: a theology and a demonology.

This may help us explain how two so apparently opposite groups as the most secularized people in the West and the most religious people in the Middle East have been able to find so much common ground. In principle, an alliance between the Western Left and Muslim fundamentalism would seem absurd or, at best, a tactical move, wouldn’t it? But it is not only tactical: they actually agree in many important ways.

To understand this, first we have to try and see through the image the Western secularists make of themselves. They think they have outgrown and discarded religion. They don’t think of themselves as religious, but rather as post-religious people. But they are not. And I’m not talking here about their attachment to what are sometimes called “secular religions” (communism, Nazism etc.).

What I’m saying is that they, though unaware of this, are still, in a certain way, conventionally religious. Actually, they’ve discarded only half of religion, its theology, but kept more or less intact the other half, its demonology. The demonology of the secular Left and that of radical Islam, despite many terminological differences, coincide, if just for the time being. The leftists do not believe in God, but they doubtlessly believe in the Devil or Devils and their Devils happen to be Khomeini’s Satans, both the big and the little one.

What makes the secular western Left so naïve is the fact that its members truly believe that a common demonology is more than enough to cement a long term alliance. It is not. To be wholly accepted by the fundamentalist (and, likely, the other) Muslims, you have to share both their demonology and their theology. If you don’t accept the latter, you’ll eventually become part of the first. Or, to translate it into more political terms, while the leftists have allied themselves strategically with the radical Islamists, these have only allied themselves tactically with them. Interestingly, the results of such an incongruent alliance could have already been clearly seen (where else?) in Iran, that is, Persia, when Khomeini himself, after being helped in his revolution by secular leftists, turned against them and exterminated them as soon as he got hold of power.

In short, there has been a pact made with the devil, but it wasn’t the secular Left that made it, but the radical Islamists. When the secular leftists discover that, in the eyes of their soon-to-be former allies, they are devils too, I wouldn’t like to be in their skins.


Uh, we don't believe in demons.

Sometimes You Just Gotta Love Your Enemies


Thanks to WorldNetDaily for making me aware of this:


Twice in three days, Palestinian television has shown religious leaders calling for the mass killing of Jews.

Both clerics said such a slaughter is a necessary stage in history and must be carried out quickly, reported PalestinianMediaWatch. Each cited the same Hadith, Islamic tradition attributed to Muhammad.

Palestinian leaders traditionally have taught that the following Hadith applies today:

The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. And the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!

Says Palestinian Media Watch: "This teaching may well be a dominant motivating factor that drives terror against Israeli civilians, because it presents the killing of Jews as a religious obligation, not related to the conflict over borders, but as something inherent to Allah's world."
Sheik Ibrahim Madiras' sermon of last Friday was broadcast the same day on PA TV.


Madiras declared, "The Prophet said: The Resurrection will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims kill them. The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice [in it], rejoice in Allah's Victory. The Muslims will kill the Jews, and he will hide.


"The Prophet said: The Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him! Why is there this malice? Because there are none who love the Jews on the face of the earth: not man, not rock and not tree; everything hates them. They destroy everything – they destroy the trees and destroy the houses. Everything wants vengeance on the Jews, on these pigs on the face of the earth, and the day of our victory, Allah willing, will come."

Two days later, on Sept. 12, Dr. Muhammad Ibrahim Maadi made the following comment on his weekly television show:

"We are waging this cruel war with the brothers of the monkeys and pigs, the Jews and the sons of Zion. The Jews will fight you and you will subjugate them. Until the Jew will stand behind the tree and rock. And the tree and rock will say: oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!"

The reference to monkeys and pigs is from a story in the Quran that claims Jews were cursed by Allah and turned into monkeys and pigs.


You just gotta love you enemies when they tell the truth. So, I want to express my deep sense of gratitude to both Ibrahim and Muhammed for letting us in on your plans.

Sure Farenheit 9/11 Was A Hit In America
But Will It Play In Persia?


Answer? No:


TEHRAN (AFP) - Cinemagoers in the Iranian capital were given their first glimpse of 'Fahrenheit 9/11' this week, but appeared to enjoy more the rare chance to watch an American movie than its assault on their regime's arch foe George W. Bush.

Michael Moore's Bush-bashing polemic may have cruised through Iran's unforgiving censors thanks to its indictment of US policy, but the premiere of the film also had the side effect of making some viewers relate the same questioning to their own state of affairs.

"The authorities obviously gave the film the green light for political reasons, in that anything against the United States must be good," quipped one of the hundreds of mainly young people who flocked to Tuesday night's opening screening.

The prize-winning documentary has been allowed out on release here to coincide with the third anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks in the United States -- which kicked off a chain of events that has seen Iran surrounded by US troops and lumped into an "axis of evil".

"They are showing this film to erase from our minds the idea that America is the great saviour," said Hirad Harandian, another cinemagoer at the uptown Farhang cinema.

The hall is one of only two cinemas in the country to be screening 'Fahrenheit 9/11'.

On Tuesday night the film was sold out and the theatre packed with close to 380 people, most of them young. Many admitted they were just out to watch an American film, and not that one in particular.

"I love to see foreign films on the big screen, and I never miss Farhang cinema shows no matter what is on," said Sima Gharavi, a 24-year-old dressed in a short bright blue coat rather than the more conservative all-black attire.

But she hastened to complain that "out of all the films people would love to see, the authorities had to go for this one -- just because this film is in line with the view of the Islamic regime."

And despite sporadic laughs here and there, most of Moore's sardonic humour appeared to fall flat. The end of the film was also greeted with some half-hearted clapping.

"It was just too political. I was bored from the middle, and I wished we had gone to see "Kill Bill" instead," said one young man, referring to the trendy Quentin Tarantino flick also being shown.

But those of the older generation appeared to relate well to the film, which succeeded in sparking some vigorous after-show chatter.

"I saw it as an Iranian who has also lived in America," said Kourosh Amini, a man in his 50s.
"It perfectly depicted the realities of American life, and they have to learn what war really looks like."

And even though his twenty-something son quipped in to say he was "disappointed" by the film and asserted "politics is not as important" for Iran's younger generation, he did envy Moore's position.

"It sure is a great country, where someone like Moore trashes the president and gets away with it -- and makes so much money!" he laughed.



That kid hit the nail right on the head and I couldn't agree with him more. I'm glad a guy like Michael Moore can become fabulously wealthy in our country.

And, by the way, think about this: The Iranian government cleared the movie for an opening coinciding with the third anniversary of September 11th. Do you think that means the government of Iran supports September 11th?


We Gather From Rather's Blather That
They Can't Recant?


Back on Sept. 9th I wrote a couple of postings about the success of bloggers in uncovering the hoaxed memos CBS used in it's story about Bush's preferential treatment while in the National Guard. Today is Sept. 18th and CBS has yet to recant their story. That the documents are faked is not a matter of opinion. It is empirical reality. The memos were typed with a modern day word processing program, in Times New Roman, with proportionally-spaced fonts.

So the question is, why does CBS refuse to recant?

Thanks to LittleGreenFootballs for making me aware of this possible explanation, proposed by Mark Steyn:


... Dan (Rather) keeps demanding Bush respond to the ''serious questions'' raised by his fake memos. ''With respect, Mr. President,'' he droned the other day, ''answer the questions.'' The president would love to, but he's doubled up with laughter.

I was prepared to cut the poor old buffoon some slack a week ago. But Dan's performance has grown progressively more outrageous, to the point where it's hard not to conclude he's colluding in the perpetuation of a massive if ludicrous fraud.

So the question now is why won't Dan and Co. just admit their docs are crocks and let it go? On Wednesday, CBS News head honcho Andrew Heyward, in a slippery statement, announced that ''we established to our satisfaction that the memos were accurate.'' Note that word: not ''genuine'' but ''accurate''. Rather and Heyward are adopting the rogue-cop defense: The evidence is planted, but the guy's still guilty. Or as the New York Times' headline put it: ''Memos On Bush Are Fake But Accurate.''


Why has CBS News decided it would rather debauch its brand and treat its audience like morons than simply admit their hoax? For Dan Rather? I doubt it. Hurricane Dan looks like he's been hit by one. He's still standing, just about, but, like a battered double-wide, more and more panels are falling off every day. No one would destroy three-quarters of a century of audience trust and goodwill for one shattered anachronism of an anchorman, would they?

As the network put it last week, ''In accordance with longstanding journalistic ethics, CBS News is not prepared to reveal its confidential sources or the method by which '60 Minutes' Wednesday received the documents.'' But, once they admit the documents are fake, they can no longer claim ''journalistic ethics'' as an excuse to protect their source. There's no legal or First Amendment protection afforded to a man who peddles a fraud. You'd think CBS would be mad as hell to find whoever it was who stitched them up and made them look idiots.

So why aren't they? The only reasonable conclusion is that the source -- or trail of sources -- is even more incriminating than the fake documents.



For Some Reason The Jihadi Monsters Are Not Cooperating With France


Thanks to Eursoc and No Pasaran for making me aware of this:


The group allegedly behind the kidnap of two French journalists has released a statement describing France as an "enemy of Muslims."

The Islamic Army of Iraq (whatever) says that France's role in Algeria, its controversial headscarf ban, its insistence on locking up Muslim terrorists and, most bizarrely, its support for Israel were just part of a litany of complaints against Paris.

The list also criticised France for not supporting the war in Iraq because its opposition was not based on the welfare of Iraqis but on French interests.

"France's history with Muslims is a black one, blemished by hatred and malice and blood. Its modern history is no less so that in the past," it concluded, urging all Muslims to rise up against enemies like France.

The IAI has been holding two kidnapped French journalists for almost a month. The group initially demanded that France reverse its law banning Islamic headscarves in school and forced the journalists to plead with Paris to change the law to save their lives. France pressed ahead with the law but its diplomatic missions in the Middle East went into overdrive to secure the pair's release.

Earlier this month their release was thought to be imminent. However, nothing has been heard from the journalists or the kidnappers up to yesterday's statement.

France's foreign ministry is said to be examining the report.


Jeez, France can't buy a break. I don't understand it, those Jihadi's seem like such reasonable people. Surely, they would want to negotiate.

Nobel Peace Prize Winner Pays Money For Jewish Blood


Thanks to Michelle Malkin for making me aware of this from Arutz Sheve:


Confirmed: Arafat Paid Father of Dolphinarium Terrorist 18:18 Sep 14, '04 / 28 Elul 5764

(IsraelNN.com) Recently released documents captured during Operation Defensive Shield confirm that the family of the suicide bomber who attacked the beach front Dolphinarium dance club in Tel Aviv was awarded $2000 by Yasser Arafat. Arafat also sent the terrorist’s father a letter in which he praised his son’s murderous act.

The attack on the Dolphinarium was one of the most brutal massacres of the entire Oslo War, killing 21 people, mostly teens, on a Friday night in August 2001.


As Michelle notes, Arafat is a Nobel Peace Prize Winner.

The world has turned upside down.

Scummy Right-Wingers


Captain Ed at Captain's Quarters sniffs out a right-wing hoax. Here's the original AP news report:


Three-year-old Sophia Parlock cries while seated on the shoulders of her father after having her Bush-Cheney sign torn up by Kerry-Edwards supporters on Thursday, Sept. 16, 2004, at the Tri-State Airport in Democratic vice presidential candidate John Edwards made a brief stop at the airport as he concluded his two-day bus tour to locations in West Virginia and Ohio.


But that's not what really happened. Here's the real scoop from Captain's Quarters:


Bandit sent this over to me, rightfully disgusted about anyone who would attack a three-year-old over a political sign she held. I completely agree. I also think that her father is an idiot for putting his daughter in that situation.

UPDATE: Did I say her father was an idiot? Make that a serially dishonest idiot. Rising Hegemon calls Shenanigans and has the proof:

Charleston (WV) Daily Mail, August 27, 1996, Page 3C

Phil Parlock's experience was less calm.

The Huntington man said he was knocked to the ground by a Clinton supporter when he tried to display a sign that read "Remember Vince Foster," the deputy White House counsel who committed suicide in a Washington, D.C., park. His death has become the subject of much debate among Clinton opponents.

Charleston (WV) Daily Mail, October 28, 2000, pg. 1A:

Phil Parlock didn't expect to need all 12 of the Bush-Cheney signs he and his son Louis smuggled in their socks and pockets into the rally for Vice President Al Gore.

But each time they raised a sign, someone would grab it out of their hands, the two Huntington residents said. And sometimes it got physical.

"I expected some people to take our signs," said Louis, 12. "But I did not expect people to practically attack us."

Maybe the Parlocks just have a lot of bad luck, or perhaps all Democrats become rabid when the Purlocks come into view. The problem, as Attaturk notes, is determining who's a Democrat and who's a Purlock.


Go here to view the photos. You will see that the guy who ripped the Bush/Cheney sticker from the hands of the three year old is one of Parlock's sons.

The Parlocks are scummy people. I believe I can safely say, they are what we Christian people would call "a-holes."

But I'll bet ya James Carville admires them.

Mr. Parlock, we don't need you, or your scummy families' help, thank you very much.

Shame On You President Bush - Shame - Shame


Vladimir Putin is angry with the West, and with good reason:


MOSCOW (Reuters) - President Vladimir Putin (news - web sites) accused the West of indulging terrorists on Friday, just hours after a Chechen warlord claimed responsibility for a wave of deadly attacks in Russia and threatened more.

"A patronising and indulgent attitude to the murderers amounts to complicity in terror," Putin said, widening a rift between Russia and the West over how to deal with Chechen rebel violence.
Shortly before, Chechen rebel leader Shamil Basayev said he had ordered the Beslan school siege in southern Russia in which more than 320 hostages were killed, half of them children, and threatened more attacks by any means he saw fit.


"We have long warned about the threat of terrorist attacks, but our voice has not been heard," Putin told an international meeting of city mayors.

"Moreover, we faced double standards in the attitude toward terrorism," he said, repeating charges the West has been two-faced by giving asylum to top Chechens and urging Moscow to negotiate with rebel leaders but rejecting the possibility of dialogue with Osama bin Laden (news - web sites).

He said calls to deal with Chechen separatists recalled the failed appeasement of Nazi Germany before World War II.

"I urge you to remember the lessons of history, the amicable deal (with Adolf Hitler) in Munich in 1938 ... Of course, the scale of consequences is different ... But the situation is very similar. Any surrender leads to them widening their demands and makes losses worse."

His comments are certain to fuel the mounting tension with a West critical of Putin's policy on Chechnya (news - web sites) and which has warned that his recent response to terror attacks -- by handing more power to the Kremlin -- threatens Russia's brittle democracy.

Putin said Russia was also preparing to carry out its threat to launch pre-emptive strikes on "terrorist bases" anywhere in the world.

"Now in Russia we are seriously preparing to take preventative measures against terrorists," he said without giving any further details.


It is truly a shame that Europe and America have not recognized the fact that Russia is dealing with the same Jihadi monsters with whom we are dealing. What happened to Russia with the Beslan Massacre is, in some ways, worse than 911. Vladimir Putin has to be allowed, and even encouraged, to fight the Jihadi Monsters with whatever he has at his disposal ...

short of WMD's.

Aha, you thought you had me there.

Churchill On Islam


Winston Churchill almost singlehandedly woke Europe out of it's Hitler-appeasing slumber in the leadup to World War II. Therefore we should take the words of Winston Churchill very seriously. Here's what Churchill had to say about Islam:


"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.

A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men."

Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world.

Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytising faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome."


I would qualify this by noting that Islam is one of the World's Great Religions and is the faith of millions of peaceful people around the world. As such, Islam deserves respect. However, Islamism (radical Islamists, the supporters of violent Jihad) is evil. It is regretful that Churchill did not make this distinction. However, I believe it is valuable to know what Churchill thought of Islam relative to the Nazi menace. Note his statement, "No stronger retrograde force exists in the world."

Churchill, who foresaw the Nazi menace, also believed that Islam, as an ideology, paralyzed civilizations.

A Wake Up Call To Jews


From FrontPageMag.com, Aisha Suddiqa Qureshi writes:


Dear Jews, everywhere, I would like to point out the time bomb likely to explode in your faces. It has already been detonated in France. When it happens in the country you call home, you may be shocked and unprepared, so I present this letter to you as a warning. In it, I will inform you of some basic facts – facts that can never be changed.

1. You are a Jew, whether you like it or not.

It doesn't matter if you change your name. It doesn't matter if you convert. You say you don't think of yourself as Jewish? Perhaps Judaism is just too far beneath your enlightened consciousness. Well tough luck – it's still a part of who you are. I know, I know, this is the modern world.

In America, Jews are first class citizens. But it really is "only in America" where Jews enjoy equal status. Perhaps you have forgotten that with the exception of the United States and Israel, Jews in all other countries suffer the stigma of the outsider. Granted that your personal future looks bright since you overcame your ancestry, however, you mistakenly believe that you are a member of the elite club of secular society.

But, have you ever heard of the Holocaust? A little over 60 years ago, the discovery of one Jewish grandparent in one's family tree was enough to mark that person for the slaughter. That means that Jews living the high life in denial were plucked from their exalted status and plunged into the concentration camps and worse. And in the centuries and decades prior to the Holocaust, was life more secure? At certain periods, indeed it was – or so it seemed – and then, the inevitable fall from grace.

You have become used to being accepted. But, if you forget the stories of your ancestors, you are sure to see them come true in your own lives. Please believe me. Being a Muslim, living under the dark shadows of Islamism, I see, watch and experience every day the reach and depth of anti-Semitism that has taken hostage a whole people. There cannot be a better person than a Muslim to warn you of your misguided sense of liberalism; I live in an environment that is so carefully and skillfully prepared to annihilate Jews.

Note the rising anti-Semitism in Europe and in certain sectors of American society (college campuses, the media, the Presbyterian Church etc.) Just a few weeks ago, 200 French Jews immigrated to Israel, fed up with the rampant persecution by "Muslim toughs," as former New York City Mayor, Edward I. Koch puts it. The country which has pledged "Liberté, Egalité, Fraternité" since the 1800s once again turned its back on the Jews. "Never again" is the oath the Jewish people have collectively sworn since the horrors of World War II. All freedom loving peoples of the world must actively participate in securing Jewish future to guarantee that this oath holds true. Jews truly are the chosen people – when things in the world go sour, Jews are chosen to pay the penalty.

2. The world has hated and will always hate Jews for one reason.

Over the summer a friend of mine attended a lecture in Israel given by Rabbi Eric Coopersmith of Aish Ha Torah, entitled "Why the Jews?" He told me that Rabbi Eric disproved the common misconceptions of why the Jews are always picked on and got to the truth of the matter. It isn't because the Jews supposedly control the world and all the money in it (you don't), or because you killed Jesus (you didn't), or because you just happen to always be the scapegoat. I agree with Rabbi Coopersmith who pointed out that you can only scapegoat a group of people you were already willing to hate. His humorous example was that the Nazis couldn't scapegoat midgets and it's true – it would never work. Whether they realize it or not, people are and have always been willing to hate the Jews for one simple reason: they gave the world the concept of an objective right and wrong.

When the first seeds of Judaism were planted in Abraham, his descendents were required to teach humanity about conscience and morality. In a time of universal barbarism and cruelty, the ancient Hebrews were the first to adopt for themselves the six values essential for civilized existence: the sanctity of life, education, family, social responsibility, equality before the law, and peace (Source: WorldPerfect by Ken Spiro). In my view, the ancient world couldn't forgive you for it and neither could Hitler. In his writings, Hitler clearly said that he is a barbarian who wants to express his primal instincts and Judaism says he can't. For him, not only is the concept of conscience "a Jewish invention; it is a blemish, like circumcision." The infamous Hitler Youth even sang a song with these lyrics:

_We are the joyous Hitler Youth; _We have no need for Christian virtue._Our leader is our savior;_The pope and rabbi shall be gone._We shall be pagans once again.

Hitler also told his people that Providence has ordained that I should be the greatest liberator of humanity. I am freeing man from the restraints of an intelligence that has taken charge, from the dirty and degrading self-mortifications of a false vision known as conscience and morality, and from the demands of a freedom and personal independence which only a very few can bear.(Visit http://www.aish.com/seminars/whythejews/wtj01000.htm for the full seminar.)


I know, from having read way too much Nietzche in my lifetime, that this is true of Hitler. The German Romanticism that was developed in the 19th century, by people like Nietzche and Richard Wagner, was the inspiration behind Hitlers philosophy.

Many people think that Germany is a "Christian nation" and I have often heard people say things like, "look what the Christians did to the Jews in Germany." To this day, many Jews assert the same idea. As you can see, that is simply not the case.

There's more. Go read the whole article.

Holocaust Denial On Egyptian Television


Politicians and journalists shed their grace while discussing the merits of an article denying the Holocaust on Egyptian television. Thanks to FrontPageMag for making me aware of this translation from Memri.org:


Rif'at Sayyed Ahmad, president of Jaffa Research Center in Cairo: "This article was scientific research, which relied on many European and American sources concerning this lie, one of the lies upon which the State of Israel was establish - the lie about the burning of the Jews in the Nazis' ovens. The original intention of the article, its main aim and philosophy, was not to go into this issue in depth, but rather to use it in order to highlight the current Holocaust that we are experiencing in Palestine and which does not cause the West the same pain that it feels about an event that was, at the very least, falsified or exaggerated."

Sayyd Ali, host: "Or whose truth is in doubt…"

Rif'at Sayyed Ahmad: "Or whose truth has been in doubt for sixty years, while today a true Holocaust is occurring from Rafah to Jenin, Nablus, Baghdad, and Nafaj. This is the Holocaust that our nation and our region is experiencing today, and the West does not pay attention to it and doesn't feel the same level of pain that it feels concerning the old Holocaust. When this article was published, the Zionist MEMRI organization in America and the Simon Wiesenthal Center, which is also Zionist, translated the article and then disseminated it and sent letters to the American Congress, to the American Embassy in Cairo and to the Egyptian Foreign Ministry, and other places."

On the Phone - Muhammad Al-Zurqani, former editor-in-chief of Al-Liwaa Al-Islami: "I agree with what Dr. Rif'at Sayyed Ahmad wrote and I accept full responsibility. I think, Dr. Sayyed, that you and I are of the same generation, colleagues who worked together. We were educated from childhood that the Holocaust is a big lie."

Sayyd Ali:"Of course."

Abd Al-Qader Yassin, Palestinian politician: "The 'Chosen People'… The Jews borrowed from Nazism all of its concepts - that they are exceptional and that they are the best among the nations, exactly as Hitler thought of the Aryan people.

Rif'at Sayyed Ahmad: "In WWII, 18 million Germans were killed. Out of those 18 million, the million and a half Jews they keep talking about - if they were killed, and I am only saying for the sake of argument that one and a half million were killed in this Holocaust - they were killed as a result of the war, and were not killed by the…

Abd Al-Qader Yassin: "The Holocaust was carried out with the agreement of the Zionist and the German leaderships. There was a very well-known agreement between the leadership of the World Zionist Organization and Hitler. But there is doubt as to the truth of this story. The Transfer [Agreement]. There is also a book by Farris Glubb, the son of the Irishman John Bagot Glubb, ' The Star of David and the Swastika.' Also, our brother Mahmoud Abbas, 'Abu Mazen,' published a book for which he received a doctorate from the former USSR, about the ties… Let's read the title so as not to make a mistake… ' The Other Face – The Secret Ties Between Nazism and Zionism,' published by Ibn Rushd publications in Amman.


Two things to note:

1) This scary "Zionism" of which they speak is simply the idea that the Jews should have a homeland. This idea began to have prominence in the 1880's and was given credibility and expediency by the reality of the Holocaust.

2) "Our brother Mahmoud Abbas, 'Abu Mazen" is the former Palestinian President appointed by Arafat who was praised by the world's media as a moderate force, someone capable of initiating the Road Map to Peace.

Gee, do you think there's reason to believe that sometimes the media lies to us?

Kerry Is A Transcendentalist Mystic


One should never misunderestimate the multiduplicity of John Kerry. Go watch this video presentation of John Kerry's kaleidoscopic vision:


Kerry On Iraq


A stunning display of nuance.

As Walt Whitman, the great poet of Americna Transcendentalism, said:


Do I contradict myself? Very well then I contradict myself,
I am large
I contain multitudes.


The question is, do we want a Transcendalist as a President?

No Really, My Dear Andalusia, Don't Worry,
Amerigo Will Pay For This One


America will just have to be gallant as Andalusia, er, I mean, Spain acts like frightened little tramp that she is. Go here to see the advertisement for one of Spain's major newspapers.

The ad, which features before and after photos of the Sept. 11th Manhattan skyline, declares,


"You can do a lot in one single day; just imagine what can happen in three months"


Uh, wow. You hate us. You really do hate us.

Well, that's ok Andalusia. We will pay for World War IV so you can continue to live in your little fantasy world.

Why do I keep calling Spain "Andalusia"? Read this, from a Slate article circa Oct. 2001:


What's it (Sept. 11th) have to do with Spain? Virginia Postrel proposes a "Bin Laden Doctrine": "that no Muslim territory should ever become non-Muslim." Bin Laden opened his videotaped statement with this sentence: "Let the whole world know that we shall never accept that the tragedy of Andalusia would be repeated in Palestine. We cannot accept that Palestine will become Jewish." The "tragedy of Andalusia" refers to the conquering in 1492 of the Muslim Kingdom of Granada by the Catholic monarchs Ferdinand and Isabella. It was a central moment in the Islamic empire's quest for political and military power: Muslim expansion was not just checked; it was reversed. If Bin Laden truly wants to restore the original geographic dimensions of the caliphate, he may eventually look toward Spain.


Gee, do you think? Eventually?

But, like I said, don't worry, we'll pay for it.

Prager's Thoughts On Rosh Hashanah

My family will be celebrating Rosh Hashanah this year as only a Christian family would; we will have a birthday cake with candles and we will sing "Happy Birthday" to God's Creation. Then we will say a prayer of gratitude to God for all that He gave us when He created the Universe. (By the way, to my Jewish friends; I can hear you laughing, so take it easy. Heh heh.)

My wife and I want to teach our children to be thankful for the immense blessing of creation. And we believe this is a good way to start when they are young.

Anyway, Dennis Prager's article this week deals with Rosh Hashanah. Dennis has some ideas on what his fellow Jews should be thinking about on this Holiday of gratitude and contemplation. He also shares some ideas for non-Jews:


... because Judaism believes that Rosh Hashanah is the world's New Year, not the Jews' alone, a word to the non-Jewish world.

However many Jews may live lives alienated from their God and Bible, it should be obvious to anyone that Jews have a special role to play in the world. Whether non-Jews like it or not, and whether Jews are aware of it or not, Jews carry the burden of God-based universal morality in the world. That is why the most evil of any generation direct their venom first at the Jews.
Our generation is no different.


Therefore, non-Jews who dismiss the enemies of the Jews as only the Jews' problem are deceiving themselves terribly. Jew-haters come after the Jews first, but never the Jews only. Had the world taken Hitler's anti-Semitism seriously earlier, and therefore confronted him earlier, tens of millions of lives would have been saved. Had the world taken the Arab and Muslim terror unleashed on Israel seriously – and not dismissed it as Israel's problem or even more absurdly, as Israel's fault – and confronted that terror immediately, much human suffering would probably have been avoided.


I agree, and that's why we at CUANAS created this blog.

Reuters Hints That Israel Pulls Puppet Strings


The Reuter's headline this morning (one of the top nine headlines on Yahoo) is

"Is Israel 'Swing State' That Could Tip U.S. Election?"

Wow, good question Reuters. Here's my question to you:

"Is Reuter's Headline a Dark Hint That Israel Pulls The Puppet Strings Of America?"

Gee, do you think? Have all of you, over at Reuters, been reading your copies of The Protocols Of The Learned Elders Of Zion again?

Now, let me tell you something; I have relatives in England who plan on voting in the U.S. election. There are American expatriates living in all four corners of the globe. The votes of these expatriates come flooding into the United States, via absentee ballot, in every election.

So, why the question about Israel, Reuters?

The facts are in the Reuters article:


... American expatriates -- estimated to number between five million and 10 million -- are being courted like never before by Democrats and Republicans.

Israel, sometimes referred to as the "51st state" for its embrace of all things American, has become a key battleground.

It is home to an estimated 250,000 U.S. citizens, America's fifth-largest community abroad, many hailing from swing states such as Florida, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Michigan.


Got that? There are five to ten million expatriates, 250,000 of them being in Israel. That means Israel is home to between three to five percent of total expatriates. Israel is home to the fifth largest population of Americans living abroad. So why not do an article on the number one population of expatriates, which is probably Mexico, by the way.

Why isn't Mexico referred to as America's 51st state?

Why does Reuter's not darkly hint that Vincente Fox pulls Bush's puppet strings?

These questions need to be answered.

Hard Right Party Poised to Win Parliamentary Seats In Germany


David's Medienkritik posted this article this morning about how the neo-Nazi movement is gaining steam in Germany:


Polls: Hard Right Nationalists Projected to Win Representation in Two German States

The German NPD (German Nationalist Party) is about the closest legal equivalent to the Nazis to be found on the German political scene today. The party consists of neo-Nazis, calls for the restoration of German lands lost in World War II and has referred to the United States as "the world's arsonist."

Germany's Extreme-Rightist NPD is on the verge of victory in Saxony

Polls now indicate that after a strong showing in last weekend's Saarland elections, the NPD is set to win 9% of the vote in next week's elections in Saxony, which would easily give the party official representation in the state parliament. The President of Saxony, a part of the former East Germany, Georg Milbradt, warned that a strong showing for the NPD could damage his state's, and ultimately Germany's image. Mr. Milbradt stated: "With the NPD in the state parliament I can spare myself future visits to the USA to try to attract jobs to Saxony."
Indeed. Perhaps it is the US media that should be looking at Germany's elections with a sense of deep concern and foreboding...

A Troubling Trend: Brandenburg also on the Edge

The eastern German state of Brandenburg will also be holding elections next week and yet another hard-right party, the DVU, looks as if it may achieve the 5% of the vote needed to gain representation in the state parliament. Polls currently give the DVU 5 to 6 percent of the vote.
Root Causes: The SPD's Cycle of Hopelessness


One of the key reasons for the extremists' strong showings in the two East German states is the disproportionately high level of unemployment found there. Most of eastern Germany has a much higher unemployment rate than the rest of the country. In Brandenburg, for example, the unemployment rate is close to 20%. The sense of hopelessness in these states and the German government's inability to significantly improve conditions have led in part to the dramatic voter backlash. The former ruling Communist party of East Germany, the PDS, has also been making major election gains of late and will likely also continue to profit from the backlash.

Chancellor Schroeder and his Socialist-Green government are under increasing political pressure with each passing day. The SPD has faced election debacle after election debacle over the past two years with no end in sight. Now the big question is: Will extremists on both the right and left successfully capitalize on Schroeder's failure to govern and make sustainable long-term gains and inroads into German politics? Let's hope not...

Delinking Andrew


Very few people read my blog, so my opinions mean very little in this world. But, I want to announce that I am delinking Andrew Sullivan. I'm hoping this will become a "they told two friends and they told two friends" thing.

I like Andrew,

but,

In my opinion, Andrew has become a one-issue guy. Andrew is mad at Bush about the gay marriage issue, specifically Bush's support for the Federal Marriage Admendment. I think that is fair. In fact, I tend to agree with Andrew on most issues relating to being Gay in America.

But, Andrew knows how important the War Against the Islamofascists, Infanticidal Maniacs is. Andrew knows Bush is taking the war to the terrorists. And he knows that Kerry will "respond" if we are attacked.

Andrew knows the difference.

But, his blog has increasingly centered on Bush-bashing.

In short, I think Andrew has become dishonest. He knows that the War On Terror is the most important issue of the day, but he is throwing the considerable power his blog behind all sorts of peripheral issues. In addition, when he does write about the War, he focuses only on the negative.

Add to this the fact that, as best as I can tell, Andrew does not include a blogroll of links to other bloggers. Hey man, there's no reciprocity. Why would you link to him when he will never return the favor.

Bye bye Andrew.



Those Swedes Are Just So Damned Funny


Funny as hell.

With a sense of humor like that you have to wonder if they think this is funny too.

I thought Sweden was a peace-loveing neutral country.


Protestors In San Francisco Rally For Less Womens Rights,
Less Gay Rights
Oh Yes, And For Peace Too

From Freedom House:


Palestinian women are underrepresented in most professions and encounter discrimination in employment. Under Sharia (Islamic law), women are disadvantaged in marriage, divorce, and inheritance matters. Rape, domestic abuse, and “honor killings,” in which unmarried women thought not to be virgins are murdered by male relatives, continue. Since societal pressures prevent reporting of such incidents, the exact frequency of attacks is unknown.


From the Independant Gay Forum:


What seems less well known, however, is the appalling treatment of gays under Yassir Arafat's Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Gaza. At least it was less known until Yossi Klein Halevi wrote about it in the August 19th New Republic. Palestine makes rural Texas look like San Francisco.

According to Halevi, one young man discovered to be gay was forced by Palestinian Authority police "to stand in sewage water up to his neck, his head covered by a sack filled with feces, and then he was thrown into a dark cell infested with insects." During one interrogation Palestinian police stripped him and forced him to sit on a Coke bottle.

When he was released he fled to Israel. If he were forced to return to Gaza, he said, "The police would kill me."

An American who foolishly moved into the West Bank to live with his Palestinian lover said they told everyone they were just friends, but one day they "found a letter under our door from the Islamic court. It listed the five forms of death prescribed by Islam for homosexuality, including stoning and burning. We fled to Israel that same day," he said.

The head of a Tel Aviv gay organization told Halevi, "The persecution of gays in the Palestinian Authority doesn't just come from the families or the Islamic groups, but from the P.A. itself."
Palestinian police have increasingly enforced Islamic religion law, he said: "It's now impossible to be an open gay in the P.A." He recalled that one gay man in the Palestinian police went to Israel for a short time. When he returned to the West Bank, Palestinian Authority police confined him to a pit without food or water until he died.



You have to wonder why protestors in San Francisco would rally for such a society and against Israel.

Do you think it has anything to do with the Swastikas?

Academic Bias In American Universities


Check out this new short movie about Adademic Bias. You can watch it for free. Click here.

I love it when Professor Geoffrey Schneider questions the idea of having an American Studies major, saying it is a ruse for saying positive things about the United States.

Well gee, we wouldn't want to say anything positive America now, would we?

I remember a Professor of mine announcing to the class that he was a Communist. I don't really care much if someone is a Communist. This is a free country. Your freedom includes the right to be a Communist. So fine.

But, the funny thing was when he said the Capitalist system was evil and inhumane. I challenged him, in class, by asking to name one civilization or even uncivilized group of people, in all of history, where the people themselves did not employ capitalism and, of course, he couldn't do it.

Come on, my friend. Name one.

I pointed out that Capitalism is a force of human nature the way the weather is a force of nature. One caveman would pick roots and the other would chase down a chicken and then, they would trade. That's Capitalism.

The question is not whether we can overthrow Capitalism. We can't. It will only go underground, as it did with the Soviet black market.

The question is, what legal and constitutional limits should we put on Capitalism. I think that is a fair question. I think reasonable people can differ on this issue. But, I also believe that Democracy needs to reign over these decisions. Societies need to be able to vote on the checks and balances placed on Capitalism.

But, many, and I mean many, University Professors in the U.S. believe, and teach, that Capitalism is evil.

Hah ha hah hah hah hah hah.

That is such an unrealistic idea that only a person who is profoundly ignorant of the ways of world could actually believe such a notion.

Or as Dennis Prager sarcastically notes, "One has to be very, very highly educated to believe such an idea to be true."


Black People Thank George Bush For His Leadership


Why are black people marching in the streets of New York City with signs thanking George Bush?

Click here.

Because the Arab Islamofascist government of Sudan is gradually killing, raping and enslaving all the black people of Sudan, and George Bush is the only leader in the world who pushing to call it genocide.

Islamofascists Are Nazis


Many people say it is simplistic to say Islamofascists are Nazis.

They say we must be careful about taking a trend from history and simply overlaying it on current situation in order to try to comprehend what is going on.

They say history does not repeat itself.

While it may be true history does not repeat as a digital file of past events, that doesn't mean that trends in history do not repeat.

Sometimes the color of the skin is different but the flag and the salute are exactly the same.

This may be surprising, but it is not at all shocking if you know history because

Islamofascists studied at the feet of Hitler.
