Nukes IsraelFrom Little Green Footballs
Abd Al-Bari Atwan, editor-in-chief of the UK-based Arabic daily Al-Quds Al-Arabi, told a Lebanese TV interviewer he will dance in Trafalgar Square when Iran nukes Israel.
Bari Atwan is also a contributor to the BBC and Sky News, neither of whom seem to have much of a problem with this.
Bari Atwan founded the pan-Arab daily in London in 1989, and today the paper hasClick here to see the video of Bari Atwan’s fervent wish for Israel to suffer a nuclear attack

Sky News refused to comment specifically on his comments.
“It is not our policy to comment on what contributors may or may not say
on other channels,” said Adrian Wells, head of foreign news at Sky.
A BBC spokesman told The Jerusalem Post that editors make decisions based on the
following BBC guidelines.
“We should not automatically assume that academics and journalists from other organizations are impartial and make it clear to our audience when contributors are associated with a particular viewpoint.”

Eight Jews Left In Baghdad
What has to happen before our world will wake up? If you don't understand the sheer evil of Islam (as it is laced with Islamofascism), then here is an example. We free a people to do what they want, and they persecute Christians, and expel Jews.

:The Last Jews of Baghdad TIME Magazine
Baghdad was once one of the great cradles of Jewish culture and wisdom, but now, according to the Christian priest who has been looking after them, there are only eight Jews left in the Iraqi capital, and their situation is "more than desperate." The Rev. Canon Andrew White, the Anglican chaplain to Iraq, says that the small group is in considerable danger. However, the community has been unable to agree to emigrate as a whole. Some of its members, without identifying themselves as Jews, have attempted to leave individually, but have been turned down. White says that only one of the Jews, a woman, still regularly goes to a Baghdad synagogue, though he will give no details.
Hey Gringos, Pack Your Bags And Get Out
There are, obviously, other forms of racism than anti-Semitism. And, there are other large racist organizations other than Al Qaeda, Hamas, and Fatah.
One of the most pernicious and disgusting of these organizations if Movimiento Estudiantil Chicano de Aztlán.
Check out this article. You're not going to believe it, unless you've seen it for yourself (Thanks to Michael):By Investigative Reporter John Taft
April 25, 2006
NewsWithViews.com "You (gringos) have spilled enough of our blood, now it's your turn to bleed, you [expletive] sub-human beasts." So said an editorial in the University of California Irvine's Hispanic LaVoz Mestiza. Professor Gutierrez, employed by the University of Texas, founder of La Raza said, "We have got to eliminate the gringo, and what I mean by that is if the worst comes to the worst, we have got to kill him." Now that isn't very neighborly. A Chicano organization called MEChA wants to take over much of the US Southwest, an area they call Aztlan said, "For the race everything. For those outside the race, nothing." Another "D" for a bad attitude. Other similar groups include: The La Raza Unida Party, Brown Berets de Aztlan, OLA (Organization for the Liberation of Aztlan), and the Nation of Aztlan. These are radical organizations that can be found in many American high schools and most colleges. They hate America and love its enemies. They are brimming over with race hatred, anti-Semitism, and a history of communist leanings and communist support. They have an irrational anger aimed at their stupid benefactors. Recent mass marches have emboldened these people who do pose a real threat to this nation. Many are illegals and profess their allegiance not to the United States where they live, but to the authoritarian corrupt state of Mexico. Why are these Chicano groups willing to use violence, kill the gringo, and steal his home and land? Here is what Lou Dobbs has to say: "There are some Mexican citizens and some Mexican -Americans who want to see California, New Mexico and other parts of the southwestern United States given over to Mexico. These groups call it the reconquista, Spanish for reconquest." The word "some" Dobbs uses runs into the hundreds of thousands and perhaps millions judging by the recent filling of streets with anti US Mexican flag wavers. A revolution is taking place while the spectators watch. The Enemy Within MEChA has declared war on the United States, the Constitution, and the Declaration of Independence. So far it has done this with impunity with the help of treacherous senators, congressmen, university officials, along with the enemies of this nation. MEChA is bold and aggressive using this nation's economy, welfare programs, and its educational system. While filling their bellies and needs at the expense of the American taxpayer, they're plotting the overthrow of this republic in broad daylight. MEChA is nurtured and protected by the University of California at Irvine. MEChA has spread its venomous rhetoric through an estimated 300 chapters in universities and schools across the United States. Their plan EL PLAN DE AZTLÁN is available for all to read. It's full of race hated, threats, and the use of their bodies for war and their youth to commit revolutionary acts of violence against this nation and its people. MEChA is appealing to all Hispanics to join their so- called revolution. The illegal aliens and lack of national border control are issues that are developing into a life or death struggle determining whether this republic shall endure as we have know it for the past 230 years. This is a threat with a potential that rivals Iran and radical Islam and it's in our communities and cities across the nation. Our national leaders are turning their backs to this threat while smiling and looking for Hispanic votes. The illegal aliens are the grunts for an army of gorilla fighters MEChA and other Chicano groups would like to create. Amnesty will make no difference to them, for the beat of their drums will continue. With amnesty, millions more of Mexico's poor and hungry will attempt to enter the US for a free ride on the backs of US taxpayers. There are large numbers of Hispanics who are not integrating into this society. They are not learning English as shown by the number of Spanish radio stations, businesses that tell you to push one for Spanish or two for English, and bilingual schools. Whole communities, like Maywood, California, in Los Angeles are nearly 100 percent Hispanic. And their allegiance to a corrupt Mexico, though hard to understand, is obvious. This was demonstrated visually when Hispanics legal and illegals filled American streets with protestors wanting open boarders, and amnesty for illegals, while waving Mexican flags. There was a backlash to the Mexican flag waving, so now they wave American flags thinking to fool the watchers, thus making them hypocrites and deceivers. Demonstrations like this don't happen in Mexico where Mexican authorities rape, rob, and beat illegals passing through their county as documented in the linked article. Mexico supports illegal aliens leaving Mexico and illegally crossing our border but doesn't want illegals entering Mexico.
MEChA's Plan to Seize the southwestern United States MEChA says in the Plan, "A nation autonomous and free - culturally, socially, economically, and politically- will make its own decisions on the usage of our lands, the taxation of our goods, the utilization of our bodies for war, the determination of justice (reward and punishment), and the profit of our sweat." The, "our lands" is the land owned by American citizens. How does MEChA propose to obtain this land of the southwestern states? Their Plan indicates they will use violence with physical force to remove the gringo from his property. Let's look at the following statements from the Plan. "EDUCATION must be relative to our people, i.e., history, culture, bilingual education, contributions, etc. Community control of our schools, our teachers, our administrators, our counselors, and our programs." "POLITICAL LIBERATION can only come through independent action on our part, since the two-party system is the same animal with two heads that feed from the same trough. Where we are a majority, we will control; where we are a minority, we will represent a pressure group; nationally, we will represent one party: La Familia de La Raza!" "El Plan de Aztlán is the plan of liberation! Those institutions which are fattened by our brothers to provide employment and political pork barrels for the gringo will do so only as acts of liberation and for La Causa. For the very young there will no longer be acts of juvenile delinquency, but revolutionary acts." "We must insure that our writers, poets, musicians, and artists produce literature and art that is appealing to our people and relates to our revolutionary culture." One could reasonably ask why MEChA doesn't make Mexico an economic powerhouse. The answer is easy; they are having so much success in the US, and they want to steal, like thieves in the night, the wealth of someone else's hard work. The goose that lays the golden egg is in danger. There is nothing cheap about illegals. California taxpayers paid an extra $9 billion in taxes to support illegals according to a 2004 report by the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a Washington, D.C. organization that endorses stricter immigration policies. Contributing to this expense are education at around $8 thousand per illegal child or those born to illegal parents, medical care, and prison costs. A similar study in 2004 by the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington, D.C. claimed that illegal aliens cost the federal government $10 billion more than is collected in taxes from them. That includes $2.2 billion for medical care for uninsured illegal aliens. Another $1.9 billion goes to food assistance programs like food stamps and school lunch programs. Illegal immigrant children cost taxpayers $1.4 billion in aid to schools to help pay their costs. The states' taxpayers carry the major part of the cost to care for the millions of illegals in this country. When schools ask for more money, ask how many illegals are in the classroom and if the citizenship of the parents and child was checked. The costs mentioned are disputed by others who claim the costs of illegals aliens is much higher.
Illegals and Crime in the United States
Illegals are creating a huge crime wave all across the United States. Here is what Russell Pearce, representing Arizona's 18th district says on his website, "Perhaps as high as 80% of the violent crime in the Phoenix area involves illegal aliens (according to Phoenix Chief Hurt and Mesa police violent crimes response team). Over 4000 homicide warrants were issued by the Border States to suspects who are believed to have fled south of the border into Mexico. Maricopa County Hospital loses over $2 million weekly on uncompensated care (largely do to illegal aliens). In 2003, 77 border hospitals filed for bankruptcy."
The US is a big candy land for the uneducated, criminals, and often sick illegal aliens. The illegals aliens have found there is a free lunch, free medical care, free education, and there really is a Santos Claus, a big, stupid, pale-faced gringo. Hispanic Professor Jose Angel Gutierrez at the University of Texas describes the gringo as, "Our Devil with pale skin and blue eyes." This pale-faced gringo sounds more like a fool than a devil. And guess who the all day sucker is; it's none other than John Q. Taxpayer. He's represented in congress by a bunch of enablers called congressmen and senators including Sen. John McCain and company. Jack Abramoff isn't the only guy that should be behind bars. The next article; "Congress Supperts Vote Theft by Illegal Aliens." This part will discuss: Terrorists Crossing the Border, Illegal Aliens Sway Elections and Steal Your Destiny, Oregon Schools Superintendent Susan Castillo is Dangerous to Republic, Democrats and Republicans Pander to Hispanic Vote ignoring polls, and Is Congress Creating a Revolution? All this and more. Be sure to visit NewsWithViews.com next week, May 2, 2006 for part two.
The "Mexican flag-wavers" the writer refers to in the above article, were in the streets of Los Angeles on in May of 2006. There was a huge demonstration which clogged the freeways across the hundreds of square miles that is the city of Los Angeles.
I had the distinct displeasure of attempting to drive home from Santa Monica that day, and thus I got to see the whole spectacle as if it were a backwards parade.
It was a frightening spectacle, to be perfectly frank. Let me be clear, I was not afraid that they would tear me out of my car, and kill me. I was, instead, afraid for the future of America.
There is a Mecha Chapter on almost every single college campus in America.
President Bush Warns Of "Holocaust" If Iran Gets NukesGreat!
So now, what is he going to do about it?Bush, who has routinely described Iraq as the central front in the war on terror, sought to offer a more detailed breakdown of the threat to the U.S. He said violent Islamic radicalism has two "strains"—Sunni extremism, as embodied by al-Qaida, and Shia extremism, as represented by Iran's government. "We will confront this danger before it's too late," Bush said. Bush pointedly accused Iran's leadership of trying to destabilize Iraq, calling Tehran a destructive influence that puts American lives at risk. "Iran is sending arms to the Taliban in Afghanistan to be used to attack American and NATO troops," Bush said. "Iran has arrested visiting American scholars who have committed no crimes and impose no threat to their regime. And Iran's active pursuit of technology that could lead to nuclear weapons threatens to put a region already known for instability and violence under the shadow of a nuclear holocaust. Iran's actions threaten the security of nations everywhere."
You can't just go around using words like that, and not back it up, can you?
The Truth Is ...
In a moment of candor, I would like to admit that I am a member of a large clandestine organization (which helps to fund me, and sets my agenda). It is called:
Big Tobacco, Wal-Mart Apologizing, Global Warming-Supporters, Who Are Doing It All To Kill Innocent Iraqis.
Special Agent Coretta recently sent me the following transmission:
I was down in Kennebunkport this weekend for a counter protest with Gathering of Eagles, and the anti-war anti-American leftitsts showed up as well. These "Liberals" when they passed by us in their parade made it a point to tell me how I should think by saying I should be ashamed of myself for the group I was standing with and proudly standing with too.
When they would say that to me, I said to them, "Don't blame me that you don't have any common sense," and I would touch my head and say, "I let this define," - and then I touched my skin - "not this."
(Coretta is a woman of color.)
These Liberals like to talk out against racism, when in fact they are some of the most racist people around. Also what a condescending attitude. How dare I think different. As a woman of color a hatred of America should come automaticallly to me. Hating Republicans should come automaticallyfor me. Hating all wars should come automatically to me.
I will NEVER hate America. I live in the greatest country in theworld. I'm forever grateful to the Republican party. MY party which was formed to free the slaves, and has, and still does stand for the rights of individuals as people, and treats them with respect. And I'm thankful for our military. We wish we could live in a war free world, but unfortneately we don't.
We have chants we say at these protests. "War freed the slaves. War saved the Jews."
There are times when war is necessary.
Dutch Bible Museum Opens "House of Koran"A famous Roman Catholic museum in the Hague is expanding its focus after a large donation from a Middle Eastern country
:THE HAGUE, 22/08/07 - The former Open Air Bible Museum near Nijmegen has received 500,000 euro in subsidy from oil state Oman. With this, the museum will expand to include a House of Koran.The Open Air Bible Museum recently changed its name to Museumpark Orientalis. Along with its name, the museum’s objective has changed. Formerly a traditional Catholic pilgrim’s place, the museum is now to be transformed to an ‘intercultural museum’ for Judaism, Christianity and Islam.In January of next year, the open-air museum in the village of Heilig Landstichting near Nijmegen is to receive 500,000 euro from the Ambassador of the Sultanate of Oman, Khadija Al-Lawat for the construction of the House of Koran. A museum spokesperson yesterday stated that there are also plans for a House of Mohammed and a “museum mosque”.Oman and the museum management wish to demonstrate that The Netherlands holds “ample opportunities for intercultural cooperation”. According to a statement, they believe in “a society where cohesion and trust is stronger than mistrust and sometimes even hate”.In 2011, Museumpark Orientalis also hopes to have constructed a House of Jesus, a House of Moses, a Bible House, a Tenach House, a Jerusalem House, a House of Meetings and a Spiritual Garden. First, however, it has to win a legal procedure instigated by Bishop Hurkmans of Den Bosch, who wants the museum to restrict itself to Christianity.The museum was originally a pilgrim’s place for Roman Catholics. In 2002, Bishop Hurkmans sent its management home in an attempt to block the switch to multiculturalism. At the time, a museum spokesman however said the financially ailing museum would probably not survive if the switch and the subsidies accompanying it were called off.
Allah's Place In The Theological Cosmos
Some interesting, and I believe, profound ruminations on the philosophical and theological implications of the Koran
. From Rebecca Bynum, at the New English Review (with thanks to Najistani):"Allah does not respect the free will of man, in fact, human free will is illusory at best.By this logic, all three thousand people who lost their lives on September 11, 2001 as a result of jihad action would have died at that hour regardless. And furthermore, because Allah did not intervene, it was Allahâ€™s will that it happened. The jihadis who perpetrated this act, were only puppets on a stage, obeying the will of Allah according to a pre-written script. They did not cause all those deaths and all that destruction; rather, according to Islamic logic, Allah caused it as punishment for our sins, the sins of America as a collective entity.This further reduces to: everything that occurs in the reality of the material world we live in is a direct result of Allahâ's will. Human will is but an instrument of the will of Allah and therefore does not have an independent existence in the overall trend of Islamic thought. " ....."I contend this is the equivalent to asserting not that everything is God's will, but rather that nothing is God's will, or even that there is no God, because there is no distinction between what is and what is not God's will in the reality of the material world: the good and the evil deeds of man are both equally and ultimately the result of the will of God. In this view, as the Pope pointed out, God's purpose is so transcendent as to be unknowable, which is to say, God is unknowable to the individual. And again there is no practical difference between that and the assertion that God does not exist, for His will, and therefore God himself, according to Islam, cannot be known. This is equivalent to saying that the difference between good and evil cannot be known, and this is so regardless of the existence of a list of accepted and prohibited actions put forth as God's will by Islam on the basis of Muhammad's example as the ultimate arbiter between truth and error. Goodness and Truth do not have an independent existence in Islam; they are entirely dependent on the Islamic creed.""Furthermore, according to Winston Churchill, the Muslim belief in predestination engenders a fearful, fatalistic apathy which paralyses the social development of those who follow it, for Allahs will is fixed in a one-size-fits-all pattern and is not unique to the individual believer. The individual's relationship to Allah is bound completely by the believer's obedience to Islam. Therefore, believers in Islam are actually barred from the greatest adventure known to man, that of finding God (goodness, truth and beauty) as an individual experiential reality. This is so because Allah's will is so transcendent as to be incomprehensible. Thus the testing of the believer is reduced to a test of conformity to the creed rather than a testing of the ability to discover what is right and true uniquely for himself. This is equivalent to Allah is Dead. The most heinous acts, collective and individual, can be rationalized as Allah's will and this of course is a prescription for social chaos."..."Indeed, if morality is not conceived and actuated as being an individual matter, must it not at some point become coercive and cruel? And what could be conceived of as more cruel than the removal of an individual's God-given freedom? Under Islam, the removal of that freedom is so complete as to deny it exists at all.""The unspoken assertion here is that the divine will can be known, that good and evil can be distinguished by reason, and that God can be approached through the mind by our decisions first to know good and to then be good. In Islam, on the contrary, the bridge to God through the reasoning mind is cut. Allah demands unquestioning obedience and total sacrifice, including the sacrifice of the ability to know good from evil as an individual, private matter, for the will of Allah is not a personal experience. The Islamic system has totally usurped the place of the living God for the believer: worship and obedience are one.""And reason cannot compromise with unreason without destroying the basis for its existence. By the same token, unreason cannot become reasonable without destroying itself as well. There is simply no way the hoped-for reform of Islam by way of reason would not end in Islam's ultimate destruction, but this is not an outcome to be feared. It should be welcomed"Read the whole thing
.I don't know that I agree with that last paragraph. It seems clear to me, but then I do not know Hebrew, that the Bible calls for the stoning of apostates, adulterers, and homosexuals (and yet, Christians and Jews have moved past that barbaristic idea).
There are three basic things I object to in Islam:
1) the death sentence for apostates, adulterers, and homosexuals,
2) the subjugation of women (women are worth half that of men, they must wear the burqa, or the hijab,
3) the waging of violent Jihad against Infidels and Jews.
If Muslims could find their way past these ideas, then I would have no problem with Islam.
Problem is, I agree with Rebecca Bynum that this will require the intervention of human will and intelligence.
The reality is, there is a mechanism within Islam for such human will and intelligence to intervene. It is called itJihad. This is a process of reasoning through the Koran, and understanding how it applies in the individual, and daily cirumstances with which we are faced.
This is very similar to the Talmudic process, which I believe, cleansed Judaism of its earlier barbarism.
Believe it or not, those words were just written by a person who is actually a believer in, not only, God, but in the Bible as the Word of God.
Here's how I think of it:
When God speaks Truth to mankind, He must necessarily speak in Words which mankind can understand. God may want mankind to come to a new understanding, but that will not happen without human decision (will).
When humans come to a realization, it is a matter of their will. They make a decision to follow a new course of thought or action.
When human beings make a decision to follow a new course of thought or action, they have created a paradigm shift, which ripples out across the waters of the world.
In other words, new ideas, quite literally, change the world.
When the world is changed, then God can speak to the world in a new way, in a new language, in a new paradigm.
And then, mankind must go through the process, all over again, of coming to assimilate and understand the new paradigm to which God is leading us.
But, it must be by our will, not His; because He has granted us Free Will.
There you go, my friends. Those are the thoughts of Pastorius the Profound.
