Women Are Meat,
Being Raped
Is Adultery
Oh, And
By The Way,
Kill All Gay People

For the past several months I have been repeating a single sentence over and over. I repeat it because I find the truth of this sentence so apalling, frightening, and unbelievable that I must say it again and again just to remind myself. It is too easy for a person to turn their face away from very hard truths.

Here is the sentence:

There is no Muslim political organization, academic institution, media outlet, or government, of any appreciable size, anywhere in the world, which is moderate.

As I say, I repeat this for my own sake, but also for anyone out there who is also having trouble coming to grips with this truth. And, I challenge anyone, please, if you disagree with the above sentence, please tell me, and provide me with evidence that I am wrong. I would love to be wrong, because the implications of that sentence are enormous and, quite frankly, disgusting to ponder.

The other day, the "most senior" Islamic cleric in Australia said the following words, on the subject of adultery, to a crowd of 500 "worshippers":

“When it comes to adultery, it’s 90 percent the woman’s responsibility. Why? Because a woman owns the weapon of seduction. It’s she who takes off her clothes, shortens them, flirts, puts on make-up and powder and takes to the streets, God protect us, dallying. It’s she who shortens, raises and lowers. Then, it’s a look, a smile, a conversation, a greeting, a talk, a date, a meeting, a crime, then Long Bay jail. Then you get a judge, who has no mercy, and he gives you 65 years.”

“But when it comes to this disaster, who started it? In his literature, writer al-Rafee says, if I came across a rape crime, I would discipline the man and order that the woman be jailed for life. Why would you do this, Rafee? He said because if she had not left the meat uncovered, the cat wouldn’t have snatched it.”

“If you get a kilo of meat, and you don’t put it in the fridge or in the pot or in the kitchen but you leave it on a plate in the backyard, and then you have a fight with the neighbour because his cats eat the meat, you’re crazy. Isn’t this true?”

“If you take uncovered meat and put it on the street, on the pavement, in a garden, in a park, or in the backyard, without a cover and the cats eat it, then whose fault will it be, the cats, or the uncovered meat’s? The uncovered meat is the disaster. If the meat was covered the cats wouldn’t roam around it. If the meat is inside the fridge, they won’t get it.”

“If the woman is in her boudoir, in her house and if she’s wearing the veil and if she shows modesty, disasters don’t happen.”

Now, think about it. That is the "most senior" Islamic cleric in Australia. He is a major leader in the Muslim community. And, he equates adultery and rape.

Meanwhile, in Britain, a major Muslim cleric has made known his beliefs that it would be better for the world if all homosexuals were killed:

A gay rights campaigner has accused an Imam of saying the execution of gay Muslims to stop the spread of disease is "for the common good of man". Dr John Casson visited Arshad Misbahi, the Imam at Manchester Central Mosque, to discuss concerns over the execution of homosexual Muslims in Iran.

Dr Casson said the comments were made in a private meeting but he wrote them down afterwards.

The Imam did not deny the comments but said he had been misinterpreted. Mr Misbahi said he was only talking about the Islamic perspective on homosexuality ...

Like I said, these are leaders in the Muslim community. And, furthermore, they are leaders in the Western Muslim community. They are not backward Imams in some little mosque in the middle of the desert in Saudi Arabia. These are the people Western Muslims choose to lead them.

It seems to me we need to start seriously considering whether we have any partners for peace in the Islamic world. Certainly, if we do, they are not represented by any strong political power.

We Can't
Our Leaders
To Tell Us
The Truth

Ok, so in the post above I lamented the fact that it is impossible to find a moderate Muslim organizaion, academic institution, media outlet, or government. Now, I must deliver the sad news that it is becoming increasingly impossible to trust our leaders in government and the media world.

For instance, the BBC ran an article yesterday in which they SUPPORTED the rape-excusing Australian Imam discussed in the above post:

A few weeks ago, I happened to interview Sheikh Taj el-Din al-Hilali outside the Lakemba Mosque in Sydney where he delivered his controversial sermon.

A softly-spoken man, who clearly commands both enormous respect and affection within his community, the Egyptian-born cleric discussed the government’s recent proposals for an Australian citizenship test - an examination which many Muslim immigrants believe is targeted at them.

His English is poor, and it was difficult at times to make out precisely what he was saying.
But he told me he was keen to encourage the greater use of English in mosques and for Imams to gain a much greater understanding of Australian history and culture.

Though he did not agree with Prime Minister John Howard’s contentious view that sections of the 300,000-strong Muslim community are not doing enough to integrate themselves into the mainstream of Australian society, he seemed prepared at least to address the criticism in a constructive way.

Sheikh Hilali referred more than once to the idea of “the Aussie imam”, as he called it - model clerics with a broad knowledge of Australian culture and history.

Neat, snappy and eminently quotable. Just the kind of epithet which sticks in a journalist’s mind.

And, not to be outdone, Javier Solana, Foreign Policy Chief for the European Union, tells us Hamas does not want to destroy Israel:

Hamas wants to “liberate the Palestinians,” not to destroy Israel, Javier Solana, the European Union’s foreign policy chief, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday.

In an interview following his talks in Tel Aviv with Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni, Solana insisted that it was “not impossible” for Hamas to change and “recognize the existence of Israel.”

History had shown that people and nations “adapt to reality,” he said. “I don’t want to lose hope.”

Pressed as to whether he was underestimating the fundamentalist religious imperative at the heart of the Hamas ideology, Solana said, “I cannot imagine that the religious imperative, the real religious imperative, can make anybody destroy another country... Therefore that is an abuse of religion...”

“I don’t think the essence of Hamas is the destruction of Israel. The essence of Hamas is the liberation of the Palestinians,” he added. “The liberation of their people, not the destruction of Israel.”

Solana here is expressing his wishes, dreams, and unfinished thoughts. But, he is asserting them as if they are true. Actually, that is the strategy of all diplomats and pacifists, turning wishes and dreams into pretty balloons which carry them aloft, high above the difficulties of life on Earth, above the weight of reality, to a lofty position where they can all look down on us and say, "Tsk tsk, can't they see we are working on a peace process?"

Just in case you don't know, Hamas is very clearly founded on the idea of desroying Israel. Here is the official Hamas Charter.

Is This A Sign
That Something
Will Soon Happen?

Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert is, in my opinion, telling the world that Israel will soon set out to destroy Iran's nuclear facilities:

JERUSALEM (AFP) - Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert has accused the international community of “doing nothing” over Iran, likening the situation to the appeasement of the 1930s when faced with the rise of Nazism.

“Like the 1930s in Germany, the international community hears voices today calling for the destruction of Israel and does nothing,” he said Friday during a speech at the country’s Holocaust memorial, Yad Vashem.

“For the first time, the leader of a great nation (Iran) declares that its objective is the destruction of the State of Israel, which does not stop this nation from remaining a legitimate partner in the UN,” he added.

Israel was founded on the idea that "Never Again" would the Jews allow themselves to be the victim of genocide.

For Battle

The Riot Police are ready to do their job in Paris:

By JEAN-MARIE GODARD, Associated Press Writer

CLICHY-SOUS-BOIS, France - Police fanned out around the outskirts of Paris amid fears of renewed violence Friday as mourners marked the deaths a year ago of two teenagers that ignited riots in largely immigrant housing projects across France.

The outburst of anger at the accidental deaths of the youths, electrocuted in a power substation while hiding from police, led to three weeks of unrest and grew into a broader challenge against the French state that has continued to simmer.

The number of cars incinerated was unusually high overnight throughout France (Pastorius note: Think about how stupid that sounds. The number of burnt cars was unusually high. In other words, it was higher than the already high numbers - 112 per night on average - and they have no idea why.), and in recent days, attackers have torched four buses after forcing off passengers in the outskirts of Paris.

Within the past several weeks, police have been ambushed in several organized attacks.

Interior Minister Nicolas Sarkozy pledged Thursday to assign police to protect buses serving some of the troubled communities, and more than 500 extra riot police have been assigned to beef up security this week.

On Friday, several hundred residents of Clichy-sous-Bois and other communities outside Paris held a silent march in honor of Zyed Benna and Bouna Traore, the teens of African descent who took refuge in a power substation from what they thought was a police chase on Oct. 27, 2005. In the minds of young people here, it was fear of police that led to their deaths.

The police presence at Friday's march was discreet. (Pastorius note: Yes, thanks heavens they are being discreet. You know, the way one must be discreet about the affairs of love. God, how pathetically French. Do take note, the writer is French.)

Carrying a banner reading "Dead For Nothing," families of the teens led the ethnically diverse crowd away from city hall toward the power station.

"They became a symbol in the projects," said a cousin of Traore who gave her name as Coulibaly.

A memorial to the youths was erected near city hall later Friday; the site where they died was adorned only with the graffiti and rubble that are the signature of such neighborhoods, until family members placed flowers beside the fence on Friday.

Clichy-sous-Bois has no police station, so officers patrolling here come from outside and have no connection to residents. There is no public transport and few here have private cars, leaving most people virtually trapped. Unemployment among its 28,000 residents is well above the 9 percent national average, at 23.5 percent, and rises to 32 percent for those between the ages of 15 and 24, according to the newspaper La Croix.

The 500 additional police officers pulled in to the outskirts of Paris this week will be in five units meant to reinforce the 13 units already assigned to the area.

Human beings own their government. The government does not own the people. The people elect their government and pay taxes so that the government will do its job and protect its citizens. When the government stops doing its job, it is time for the government to go.

George Soros
Is A Very
Strange Man

George Soros is the founder and chief-financier of, the Political Action Commitee started to remove George Bush from office. Thus far, he has been unsuccessful in his primary goal, but the money behind has been succeeded in undermining America and adding to the chaos and anger in our national political debate.

But, who is George Soros? Check out this article from Accuracy in Media (thanks to R. Davis to the link):

Speaking at a Washington symposium on the continuing threat posed by illegal drugs to American society, Calvina Fay of the Drug Free America Foundation declared billionaire George Soros to be an "extremely evil person" who wants to legalize dangerous mind-altering drugs. Fay said that Soros, an atheist who is a major funder of the Democratic Party and liberal-left causes, is "our common enemy" and that he is determined to subvert traditional values and undermine America's families.

Soros, convicted of insider trading in France, is a financial speculator and hedge-fund operator who manipulates the currencies of the nations of the world in order to make himself rich. Some of his fortune, estimated at $7 billion, has been put into causes such as abortion rights, gay rights, drug legalization, voting rights for felons, euthanasia, and rights for immigrants and prostitutes. His Open Society Institute even helped underwrite attorney Lynne Stewart, subsequently convicted of helping terrorists. In 2004, he spent about $25 million in an unsuccessful effort to defeat President Bush for re-election.

In this election cycle, according to Roll Call newspaper, Soros has been cutting checks "to organizations expected to launch attacks on GOP House and Senate candidates in the run-up to the Nov. 7 elections." The money is going to a liberal group called Majority Action, "which is targeting GOP candidates…"

In an appearance at the same anti-drug event that featured Calvina Fay, Marc Wheat, staff director and chief counsel of the House Subcommittee on Criminal Justice, Drug Policy and Human Resources, described Soros as someone who has no sense of guilt or responsibility for his actions. He noted that, during a December 20, 1998, interview with 60 Minutes, Soros acknowledged that as a 14-year-old Jewish boy in Hungary, his identity was protected and that he actually assisted in confiscating property from Jews as they were being shipped off to death camps. Asked by interviewer Steve Kroft if he had any sense of guilt over what he did, Soros replied, "no."

In the interview, Soros compared his actions to the operation of economic markets, saying, "…if I weren't there, of course, I wasn't doing it, but somebody else would—would—would be taking it away anyhow." Soros then insisted he was only a "spectator" and had "no role in taking away that property." That is why, he said, "I had no sense of guilt."

Drawing attention to "The Guilt-free Record of George Soros," Wheat noted that Soros has said, in regard to his manipulation of currency markets, "I am basically there to—to make money. I cannot and do not look at the social consequences of—of what I do," and "I don't feel guilty. Because I'm engaged in an amoral activity which is not meant to have anything to do with guilt." He makes money by exploiting human suffering.

Wheat said it is his belief that Soros has found America to be "a hard nut to crack" in terms of weakening America's traditional cultural values and institutions, and that the billionaire would be spending more time and money on activities in Europe, in an effort to fan anti-Americanism there.

Great Moments
In The History Of
The Mainstream Media

From Michelle Malkin:

NBC's Baghdad reporter, Richard Engel, declares:

"I think war should be illegal...I'm basically a pacifist."

Yes, I'm sure that's a guy whose war reporting we can trust.

Jew Hate
On The
UC Irvine

Orange County, CA has spawned more than its share of monsters, including of course, Adam Gadahn. So, it is not at all a surprise to hear that the Islamofascists down at UCI are on the cutting edge of Jew Hate:

The University of California Irvine has been the subject of many posts at LGF, because the school plays host to one of the most unabashedly radical Muslim Student Union groups in the US. And now the anti-Jewish incitement has reached such a fever pitch that on the weekend of October 8, a student housing building was covered with swastikas.

What? You didn’t hear about it on the news? Apparently, deranged expressions of antisemitism on California campuses are not really news any more.

In response to this event, Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Manuel Gomez held a meeting and demonstrated exactly why the UC Irvine campus has degenerated into a pit of hatred:
Some of the Jewish students at the meeting revealed that they and others had been subject to verbal and physical intimidation at the hands of MSU members, and that they had previously reported these claims to campus security. In light of this, some students asked that Drake place restrictions on where MSU events are held, saying that if their events were held in classrooms as opposed to public spaces, their effect would not be as broad. However, Chancellor Drake told Jewish students at the meeting that he cannot restrict any club, that it would be “violation of law to prohibit certain speech.” Gomez emphasized that though hate speech may be present, he would not seek to curtail it, as “one person’s hate speech is another person’s education.”

There's more. More Nazi Imagery on UC Irvine’s Campus.

King Without A Crown

Singer - Matisyahu

This dude knows more about Jesus (Yeshua) than most any Christian that I know. And, he would tell you he doesn't even believe his Messiah (Moshiach) has come yet.

Check out the video. The man is in love with his God. Read his lyrics. Tell me, do you have this kind of relationship with your Lord?

You're all that I have, And you're all that I need.
Each and every day I pray to get to know you please.
Want to be close to you, Yes I'm so hungry.
You're like water for my soul, When it gets thirsty.

Without you, there's no me, You're the air that I breath.
Sometimes the world is dark, And I just can't see.
With these demons surround all around, To bring me down too negative.
But I believe yes I believe, I'll say that I believe.

I'll stand on my own two feet, Won't be brought down on one knee.
I'll fight with all of my might, To get these demons to flee.
Hashem's rays, fire blaze, Burn bright and I believe.
Hashem's rays, fire blaze, Burn bright and I believe.

Out of darkness comes light, Twilight unto the heights.
Crown Heights burning up, All through the twilight.
Say thank you to my God, Now I finally got it right.
And I'll fight with all of my heart, And all of my soul, And all of my might.

What's this feeling, My love will rip a hole in the ceiling.
I give myself to you. From the essence of my being
And I sing to my God, Songs of love and healing.
I want Moshiach now, So it's time we start revealing.
What's this feeling, My love will rip a hole in the ceiling.
I give myself to you, From the essence of my being.
And I sing to my God, Songs of love and healing. I want Moshiach now.

Strip away the layers, And reveal your soul.
You got to give yourself up, And then you become whole.
You're a slave to yourself, And you don't even know.
You wanted to live the fast life, But your brain moves slow.

If you're trying to stay high, You're bound to stay low.
You want God, But you can't deflate your ego.
You're already there, Then there's nowhere to go.
Your cup's already full, Then it's bound to overflow.

If you're drowning in the water, And you can't stay afloat.
Ask Hashem for mercy, And he'll throw you a rope.
You're looking for help from God, Say he couldn't be found.
Searching up to the sky, Looking beneath the ground.

Like a king without his crown, You keep falling down.
You really want to live, But can't get rid of your frown.
You tried to reach unto the heights, And wound down bound on the ground.
Giving up your fright, Then you heard a sound.

Out of Light comes day, Out of day comes light.
Nullify to the one, Like sunlight in a ray.
Make room for his love, Then a fire gone blaze.
Making room for his love, And a fire gone blaze.

I Am So Flaming Gay

There's a group of Democrats who have decided they are going to out closeted gay Republicans. I don't care if someone is gay, or whether they are closeted or not (although, I would prefer for their own mental health that they could be honest with themselves and others) so I'm with The Anchoress on her proposed solution to this new leftie idiocy.

I'm not much of a bandwagon jumper, but I think even I am going to have totak a leap (a la FTD florist) onto this queer caravan:

... I’d love to see an GOP campaign ad based on Roger Simon’s bit of fun, and that great, “I’m a drag queen,” scene from To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, wherein a whole town of (probably conservative) formerly unglamorous people - newly made fabulous - help out a few drag queens who are being pursued by a stupid hick of a sheriff.

Wouldn’t it be great? You start it off with a little voice-over explaining that the Democrats have decided that this is the Gay-outting season and that in the spirit of the thing, the following Republicans had decided to out themselves. Then you have a montage of various Republicans facing the camera:

Newt Gingrich: “I’m gay!”

Bill Frist: “I’m gay!”

Ann Coulter: “I’m so gay, I’m actually a man!”

Rush Limbaugh: “I’m a harmless, lovable little fuzzball of gay!”

Arnold Schwartzenegger: “I am a little girlie man!”

Richard Nixon (with computer enhanced mouth): “I am not a crook, but I’m so gay you can’t stand it!”

Rudy Giuliani: (in famous wig from any one of several skits he’s done in drag, and his NY ‘tude) “Come over here and tell me I’m not gay.”

President George H. W. Bush: “I’m gay! Bar’s gay, too!”

President George W. Bush (clutching Barney): Me and Barney are gay, and so is this kick-ass economy!

A Fitting End

Garbage in, garbage out:

Hospital admits to burning aborted babies in waste incinerator
By JAMES SLACK Last updated at 22:00pm on 23rd October 2006

One of the country's leading hospitals is throwing aborted babies into the same incinerator used for rubbish to save only £18.50 each time, it has emerged.

Addenbrooke's Hospital, in Cambridge, said it was no longer able to afford the dignified disposal at a local crematorium of foetuses from unwanted pregnancies.

Instead, they are being burnt in the hospital's main incinerator - which is normally used for rubbish and clinical waste.

The revelation sparked anger and distress among church leaders and pro-life groups, as well as women whose pregnancies were terminated at the hospital.

One local woman, who asked not to be named, said after the heartache of deciding to have an abortion she was mortified to find the hospital had used the same furnace they burn rubbish in to incinerate her terminated baby.

She said: "I am furious and very hurt. Imagine my horror when I discovered that my baby was incinerated in the same furnace as the hospital rubbish."

Hospital managers said they had to take the decision after 'significant increases' in the fees charged by Cambridge City Crematorium, where they were previously buried or cremated.

The hospital, under pressure along with the rest of the NHS to make millions of pounds of savings, said it was trying to be 'careful with the use of limited resources'.

What's the big deal?

Please Forgive Me

... if I act a little strange, for I know what I do
Feels like lightning running through my veins
Everytime I look at you ...

A song by David Gray

Rape Victim
Is An


Muzaffarnagar: The court has given her justice but in the lanes of Muzaffarnagar, Imrana Bibi finds no justice and no support.

Even though her father-in-law Ali Mohammad has been convicted a rapist, in her village, Imrana, today, is an outcast.

Imrana's mother-in-law, Zarifa Bibi, is understandably bitter. She says not only has her husband been framed but the whole world is today on the side of a woman who has is sly and manipulative.

"She has been wanting the property that we have. She just wanted money. Today she has got that money and left all of us bankrupt,” says Zarifa Bibi.

Her sons are as angry at the allegations that got their father into jail.

"I have been married for a longer time than my brother. I have a wife too. But my father has never touched her. Ask any of the women in this house, has my father ever touched them?" says Imrana's brother in law, Noor Mohammad.

For this family to react so aggressively is natural. But even her neighbours are echoing the same thought.

They point out that the entire family slept in the courtyard where the alleged rape took place and if she was raped and had shouted for help, there was no way the neighbours could not have heard her.

In Chartwal village, people like Rayeez Ahmed have branded Imrana an adultress and a liar.
"She has a ‘loose’ character. She had an affair with her brother-in-law as well who would come and spend lots of time with her. This story is all false. She just wanted the property," says Imrana's neighbour, Rayeez Ahmed.

Ostracized, ignored and shunned, there's no support for Imrana Bibi.

Not from her own people and definitely not among the Muslim clergy.

"If she is a true Muslim woman who respects Allah, believes in Islam and the Shariat, she will leave her husband. Otherwise, if she decides she is not a God-fearing Muslim, then what can we say?" says Maulana Mufti Zulfikar from the Shariat court in Muzaffarnagar.

Imrana has been living in her father's house in Kukda village for the last few months. She says if the Darul Uloom of Deoband wants her to leave her husband, she will do so.

There are many explanations to Imrana's story. That is was a property dispute, that she shared an inappropriate relationship with her father-in-law, that she's a wronged woman.

But in the midst of it all, it is the position of the woman in Islamic society that is starkly illustrated.

One would normally be inclined to believe the protestations of her family, except for the fact that this happens all the time in Islamic countries.

Yourself For

A quote from Nicolas Sarkozy, the great French hope:

I would like to say one thing, in what is my conception of the Republic, security is the responsibility of the State, I am against militias, I am against the private ownership of firearms, and I’m trying to make you think about that. If you are assaulted by an armed burglar, he’ll use his weapon more effectively than you anyway so you’re risking your life. If the criminal is not armed and you are and you shoot, your life will be ruined, because killing someone over a theft is not in line with the republican values that are mine.

The private ownership of firearms is dangerous. I understand your exasperation for having been burglarized two times, I understand the fear that your wife and daughter may have but the answer is in the efficiency of the police and the efficiency of the judiciary process, the answer is not in having guns at home.

If Nicolas Sarkozy is the best hope the French have at this point, then the French have a way to go before their government will actually represent the will of the people.

Flagpole Sitta

A song by Harvey Danger

Watch the video and read the lyrics. This guy is on to something. I think he has divined the zeitgeist of this age.

i had visions, i was in them
i was looking into the mirror
to see a little bit clearer
rottenness and evil in me

fingertips have memories
mine can't forget the curves of your body
and when i feel a bit naughty
i run it up the flagpole and see who salutes(but no one ever does)

i'm not sick but i'm not well
and i'm so hot cause i'm in hell

been around the world and found
that only stupid people are breeding
the cretins cloning and feeding
and i don't even own a tv

put me in the hospital for nerves
and then they had to commit me
you told them all i was crazy
they cut off my legs now i'm an amputee, god damn you

i'm not sick but i'm not well
and i'm so hot cause i'm in hell
i'm not sick but i'm not well
and it's a sin to live so well

i wanna publish zines
and rage against machines
i wanna pierce my tongue
it doesn't hurt, it feels fine
the trivial sublime

i'd like to turn off time
and kill my mind
you kill my mind

paranoia paranoia
everybody's coming to get me
just say you never met me
i'm going underground with the moles
hear the voices in my head
i swear to god it sounds like they're snoring
but if you're bored then you're boring
the agony and the irony, they're killing me

i'm not sick but i'm not well
and i'm so hot cause i'm in hell
i'm not sick but i'm not well
and it's a sin to live so well

"We Will
Have Paris"

Will we? Bogart and Bergman may have thought so. Increasingly, it is looking as if Paris may be just 10-20 years from becoming Dar al-Islam.

The Associated Press reports that French Police are now fighting against a "Permanent Intifada."

EPINAY-SUR-SEINE, France - On a routine call, three unwitting police officers fell into a trap. A car darted out to block their path, and dozens of hooded youths surged out of the darkness to attack them with stones, bats and tear gas before fleeing. One officer was hospitalized, and no arrests made.

The recent ambush was emblematic of what some officers say has become a near-perpetual and increasingly violent conflict between police and gangs in tough, largely immigrant French neighborhoods that were the scene of a three-week paroxysm of rioting last year.

One small police union claims officers are facing a "permanent intifada." Police injuries have risen in the year since the wave of violence.

On Sunday, a band of about 30 youths, some wearing masks, forced passengers out of a bus in a southern Paris suburb in broad daylight Sunday, set it on fire, then stoned firefighters who came to the rescue, police said. No one was injured. Two people were arrested, one of them a 13-year-old, according to LCI television.

In France, a high school teacher received death threats, forcing him into hiding, after he wrote a newspaper editorial in September saying Muslim fundamentalists are trying to muzzle Europe's democratic liberties.

Michel Thooris, head of the small Action Police union, claims that the new violence is taking on an Islamic fundamentalist tinge.

"Many youths, many arsonists, many vandals behind the violence do it to cries of 'Allah Akbar' (God is Great) when our police cars are stoned," he said in an interview.

I love that they say the violence is taking on a tinge of the Islamic. It has been that from the beginning. The only difference is now the press is finding it difficult to not report the facts, because seemingly everyone else knows, except the reporters.

Forget the mainstream media. You need to read the blogs.

For instance, my friend Blueslord, who lives in Spain, and also speaks French, translated some articles and put together this great post about the French Riots. This all comes from her blog, Actual Jihad:


A French newspaper reports that last year's nationwide (chiefly Muslim) riots -- which spread like wildfire throughout France, laying waste to dozens of public buildings and businesses and 9,000 cars, trucks, and busses -- cost insurers 160,000,000 Euros (more than US$200,ooo,ooo). $200,000,000 for a nation whose GDP is approximately that of California! That's a huge bill to pay. Maybe it's time to think of such riots -- past, present, and future -- as "Hurricane Mohammed."

The interested insurance companies are holding the government responsible, which is a natural and necessary direction in which to point fingers. A generation and more of a plainly failed immigration policies has saddled France with a predominantly Muslim underclass that appears permanent and permanently unruly. Can the same French government be trusted to transform France's ethnic tinderboxes into anything socially useful? Barely.

In the meantime, we know, radical Islam worked wonders on the mind of one of France's native sons. How many more is it working on right now? Who in the end will save France from its demographic rot (and in turn save the rest of the West from this French rot)?

Last Friday, my friend Pastorius from CUANAS asked my translate a post by No Pasarán about the damages the riots have provoked. This is the result:

Since January 2006:

Burned Cars: 31614
Burned public goods: 4397.
Burned trash cans:20080.
Collective violence against security, health services and firemen: 4214
Projectile launcher (like grenades or something...): 6113
Real estate occupations (houses and apartments): 228
Urban furniture damaged (that would be stuff like park benches and bus shelters): 5959.

So France has denied clearance to 43 French Bag Handlers, due to suspicions they were connected with radical organizations.

Today French paper Le Monde reports that 4 "jeunes" have been placed on provisional detention because of the attack to a policeman in Épinay-sur-Seine. The charges are "tentative de meurtre aggravé sur un fonctionnaire de police avec préméditation, dégradation en réunion et association de malfaiteurs", that is, attempted murder of a police civil servant aggravated with premeditation, degradated reunion and asociation of wicked people. It also says that the "jeunes" menaced badly the agents and one of the detained has been interviewed by police force fifteen times, because of robbing and cannabis dealing (More here).

These comes after 3 police vars were blocked in Seine-saint-Denis: one of the policemen was sprayed with oil and hurt in the neck and in the face (via I like your style)The newspaper also informs that France has created a new adminsitrative infraction: "voluntary violence against policemen caused by weapons and in an organised band".

It adds Orléans have also suffered new violences, where a car of BAC's car has been caught by some "jeunes", after the condamnation of other two "jeunes" because of throwing projectiles to policemen in the night between Wednesday and Thursday.

The Times also underlines that:

FLAMES lick around a burning car on a tiny telephone screen. Omar, 17, a veteran of France’s suburban riots, replayed the sequence with pride. “It was great. We did lots of them and then we went out and torched more the next day.”

Omar, whose parents immigrated from Mali, was savouring memories of the revolt that erupted 12 months ago from his home, the Chêne Pointu estate in Clichy-sous-Bois, in the eastern outskirts of Paris. “We’re ready for it again. In fact it hasn’t stopped,” he added.

[...] “The thing that has changed over the past month is that they now want to kill us,” said Bruno Beschizza, the leader of Synergie, a union to which 40 per cent of officers belong. Action Police, a hardline union, said: “We are in a civil war, orchestrated by radical Islamists.”

Car-burning has become so routine on the estates that it has been eclipsed in news coverage by the violence against police. Sebastian Roche, a sociologist who has published a book on the riots, said that torching a vehicle had become a standard amusement.

“There is an apprenticeship of destruction. Kids learn where the petrol tank is, how to make a petrol bomb,” he told The Times. ...

You can read the interesting post from The Belmont Club called The fire this time.

Libertad Digital (via En Defensa de Occidente) also reports that an obstetrician has been attacked by a Muslim because he did not want his wife to be treated by a man.

The French Obstetritians have issued a statement in which they say:

We will continue to have hospital services, in which women, whether women or men, will treat their patients, whatever their gender is [...] We defend the freedom of the women to determine their ideas about contraception, abortion, estirilization, without the opinion of their husbands [...] We are not going to issue certificates of virginity because of family's petitions [...] or to remake the himen, as we are asked for, because that is only a help for women's submission. Islam should adapt itself to modernity, not modernity to Islam.

Even if you are against abortion (as I am) I think this is necessary to be said. Because this kind of Islamist thugs are in essence hypocrites, who are not teaching people to act because of their conscience and convictions BUT because they are terrified of the consequences, whether they are imposed by their husbands, fathers, brothers, etc.

France is fearing the anniversary of last years' riots. (from Noisy Room.Net)

And lastly a video: Some youths are shooting a rocket on the street in Grigny where massive riots happened last year (via LGF).

I really fear the worst predictions are going to be fulfilled.

The New York Times
And The BBC
Forced To Eat Crow

In the past few days, both the New York Times and the BBC have been forced to own up and admit they are working to undermine the very nations which have made them a force in the world.

The New York Times now admits they should not have published articles revealing the SWIFT program that monitored wire transfers among terrorists organizations and their supporters.

They also now admit that no one's private data was misused, and that the program was NOT illegal, as they insisted it was at the time.

And, in another shocking development, the BBC has come clean and admitted what everyone already knew; they are disgustingly biased against traditional British values:

It was the day that a host of BBC executives and star presenters admitted what critics have been telling them for years: the BBC is dominated by trendy, Left-leaning liberals who are biased against Christianity and in favour of multiculturalism.

A leaked account of an ‘impartiality summit’ called by BBC chairman Michael Grade, is certain to lead to a new row about the BBC and its reporting on key issues, especially concerning Muslims and the war on terror.

It reveals that executives would let the Bible be thrown into a dustbin on a TV comedy show, but not the Koran, and that they would broadcast an interview with Osama Bin Laden if given the opportunity. Further, it discloses that the BBC’s ‘diversity tsar’, wants Muslim women newsreaders to be allowed to wear veils when on air.

At the secret meeting in London last month, which was hosted by veteran broadcaster Sue Lawley, BBC executives admitted the corporation is dominated by homosexuals and people from ethnic minorities, deliberately promotes multiculturalism, is anti-American, anti-countryside and more sensitive to the feelings of Muslims than Christians.

One veteran BBC executive said: ‘There was widespread acknowledgement that we may have gone too far in the direction of political correctness. Unfortunately, much of it is so deeply embedded in the BBC’s culture, that it is very hard to change it.’ ...

The full account of the meeting shows how senior BBC figures queued up to lambast their employer.

Political pundit Andrew Marr said: ‘The BBC is not impartial or neutral. It’s a publicly funded, urban organisation with an abnormally large number of young people, ethnic minorities and gay people. It has a liberal bias not so much a party-political bias. It is better expressed as a cultural liberal bias.’

Washington correspondent Justin Webb said that the BBC is so biased against America that deputy director general Mark Byford had secretly agreed to help him to ‘correct’, it in his reports. Webb added that the BBC treated America with scorn and derision and gave it ‘no moral weight’.

Former BBC business editor Jeff Randall said he complained to a ‘very senior news executive’, about the BBC’s pro-multicultural stance but was given the reply: ‘The BBC is not neutral in multiculturalism: it believes in it and it promotes it.’

Randall also told how he once wore Union Jack cufflinks to work but was rebuked with: ‘You can’t do that, that’s like the National Front!’

Ancient Find
Points To
The Unity
Of Judaism
And The
Early Followers
Of Christ

This is interesting, if true. Apparently, some people (I would hesitate to call them archaeologists) in the Holy Land have discovered a series with a symbol that is a combination of the Menorah and the Christian fish sign:

This is an ancient symbol that was found on Mount Zion. It is believed to have been created and used by the Jewish believers who called themselves Nazarenes in the first Messianic Church. The artifacts, etched in 8 separate ancient vessels, include the 3 leading symbols of of both Judaism and Christianity: the menorah at the top, a star of David in the middle, and a fish at the bottom. These Messianic Seals came from an ancient grotto located in the immediate vicinity of the Upper Room on Mount Zion. Clearly, this represents the continuing influence of Judaism and the Hebraic background of the early church of the 1st century.

This is the remarkable story as this archaeological find was uncovered:

Three companies (Olim Creative Products of Tiberias, News About Israel (NAI) of Jerusalem, and Christian Floral Delivery of Colorado) jointly announced the discovery of this ancient symbol, which has been copyrighted by NAI. It consists of three separate but integrated symbols: a menorah at the top, a star of David in the middle, and a fish at the bottom. In each of the renditions of the three-part symbol the star is created by interlacing the stand of the menorah with the fish. The Messianic Seal was found etched or inscribed on eight ancient artifacts.

The artifacts were presented to Ludwig Schneider, editor in chief of NAI's magazine, Israel Today, in 1990. They came from Tech Otecus, an elderly monk who lived as a hermit in the Old City of Jerusalem. Otecus said that in the 1960s he had personally excavated about 40 artifacts bearing the seal itself.

What was once the main entrance to the grotto is now covered with a jail-like heavy wire mesh enclosure. Its door, leading down into the ancient baptismal place, is tightly secured with a heavy chain and lock.

According to Schneider, the last remaining entry to the grotto was sealed shortly after he excitedly told the priests at the local monastery about the discovery of the Messianic Seal.Schneider photographed eight artifacts which were given to him by Otecus, and showed the pictures to the curator of the Israel Museum.

"When he had carefully studied my pictures," Schneider recalled, "the curator immediately promised me that these artifacts and their unique symbol were an important find. He told me that the museum had seen other artifacts bearing the same three-part symbol from some other sources he did not specify."

According to Fischer, at least two of the eight artifacts were obviously ceremonial pieces which may have well been used by James the Just, the brother of Jesus, who is said to be the first pastor of the church, or perhaps even by one or more of the Twelve Apostles.

One of the eight artifacts is a brick-sized block of well-worn local marble. This piece bears an etched version of the Messianic Seal with a Taw (the last letter in the ancient Hebrew alphabet that looks exactly like a sign of the cross) in the eye of the fish symbol, as well as the ancient Aramaic lettering proclaiming the use of this artifact as a stand to hold a vial of anointing oil.

The ancient Aramaic is transliterated as, "La Shemen Ruehon" (For the Oil of the Spirit). Another of the eight artifacts is a small, almost intact, vial which could well have sat on top of the marble stand.

Commenting on what he characterized as the "monumental importance" of this archaeological discovery, Fischer said, "Beyond the historical background of the Nazarenes, the first Jewish believers who founded the Jerusalem Church, the Messianic Seal itself proclaims to the world the pervasive Jewishness of Jesus Christ and the decidedly Jewish foundation and roots of the church founded in His name."

"The Messianic Seal of the Jerusalem Church," Fischer continued, "strikes at the very roots of anti-Semitism while proclaiming a compelling message that restores unity: Jew with Jew, and Jew with Gentile. The importance of this discovery cannot be minimized. The Messianic Seal is not only just the key to understanding the Dead Sea Scrolls, it can and should shake the foundations of the church and orthodox Judaism with its incredible message of unity and love. It breaks down barriers that have existed for millennia and points the way toward restoration."

Fuck The Washington Post!

This morning my friend Always On Watch sent me a link to an editorial in the Washington Post called "How I Came To Love The Veil". The article written by one Yvonne Ridley was a defense of the practice of wearing the burqa or niqab, from the perspective of a Western woman, converted to Islam.

I didn't choose to post on the subject, however, because across the page the Washington Post also ran an editorial, called "Clothes Aren't The Issue", discussing why Muslims believe it is ok to beat one's wife. I thought to myself, "Ok, so they are, at least, making an attempt to get the word out about the dangers of Islam."Man, was I wrong. I knew that I knew that name Yvonne Ridley from somewhere. It was so familiar.Thank God for Charles Johnson at Little Green Footballs:

For a special article on “Islam and Women,” the Washington Post today gives column space to an utterly deranged, hard-core Islamofascist sympathizer, Yvonne Ridley—without identifying her as anything but the “political editor of Islam TV.”

Ridley’s premise is that Islam respects women much more than the Western world.I think the mainstream media can’t possibly surprise me any more. Then they do something like this.

Yvonne Ridley is a member of George Galloway’s RESPECT party, and has written numerous essays defending Islamic terrorism. She described those murdered in last year’s terrorist attacks in Jordan as “collaborators.” She wrote, “I think I’d rather put up with a brother like Abu Musab al-Zarqawi any day than have a traitor or sell-out for a father, son or grandfather.”

She described Shamil Basaev, the mastermind of the massacre of Russian school children at Beslan, as “a Shaheed,” or martyr.

This is actually a perfect example of something the mainstream media does all the time, and that is attempt to deal with an issue by splitting the difference with evil. What they have done in the case of referring to a woman such as Ridley as some sort of expert is the equivalent setting up a debate on the policies of a Democratic Republic by referring to Thomas Jefferson on one side and Adolf Hitler on the other.

Yvonne Ridley does not deserve to be given a part in the national debate at all. If you think that is an extreme thing to say (after all, don't all human beings deserve to have their voice heard), then tell me if you think David Duke deserves to be a part of our national dialogue. Should the Washington Post runs editorials from him, and refer to him as a former candidate for the Senate?No, that would be dishonest, right? In fact, in this case, the Washington Post has moved beyond dishonesty, and into the territory of aiding and abetting evil.

I wonder how the people at the Washington Post would feel if they had to be confronted by the mothers and fathers of the dead children from the Beslan Massacre. Would they feel compfortable knowing that they had printed the words of such a woman as if she were to be treated as some sort of authority, rather than the insanely evil person she is?
