* Heard that one before? Heaven help us and safe us from the ‘experts’: anything, blame anything and everyone but not Islam. Because Islam is a ‘RoP’…
The third wave of terrorism facing the world is a leaderless mishmash of young and bored terrorist wannabees, according to a leading US expert.
Former CIA officer and now author Marc Sageman says that the latest jihadis taking up the global call for action more closely resemble criminal gang members than religious fanatics.
Dr Sageman who has just published his second book on terrorism networks, Leaderless Jihad: Terrorist Networks in the Twenty First Century, said they were typically young men looking for action, and wanting to copy their heroes, who include Osama bin Laden.
“It is more about hero-worship than about religion,” said Dr Sageman.
“It’s about youth culture … about being cool – jihadi cool.” […]

New study: “Oil, not Islam, oppresses women”
* The never-ending quest to find something, anything, anything but Islam, to explain Islamic violence, Islamic supremacism, and — in particular here — the oppression of women in Islam continues. This one is particularly egregious: it’s all about oil, you see, which is why Texas oilmen all have their women in burqas. It was oil that led all this and more to be written into the Qur’an many centuries before oil was discovered in Arabia:
1. The Qur’an likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills: “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” (2:223).
2. The Qur’an also declares that a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man: “Get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her” (2:282).
3. It allows men to marry up to four wives, and have sex with slave girls also: “If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice” (4:3).
4. It rules that a son’s inheritance should be twice the size of that of a daughter: “Allah (thus) directs you as regards your children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females” (4:11).
5. Worst of all, the Qur’an tells husbands to beat their disobedient wives: “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them” (4:34).
6. It allows for marriage to pre-pubescent girls, stipulating that Islamic divorce procedures “shall apply to those who have not yet menstruated” (65:4).
But it’s all because of oil, you see, and that’s why wife-beating and child marriage are legal in Texas also!

Subject: “FIRES ALL OVER DENMARK’
(from the Danish Press)
During the night preceding Friday, February 15, 110 fires were set in Denmark.
From 4 p.m. Friday until 7 p.m. Saturday, 400 fires were recorded.
From 7 p.m. Saturday until 4 p.m. Sunday, 103 fires.
From 4 p.m. Sunday until 8 a.m. Monday the police and fire department listed 88 fires.
From 8 a.m. Monday until 8 a.m. Tuesday, 49 fires in all.
The fires were set in connection with a wave of rioting which broke out in Inner Norrebro (A heavily Moslem-immigrant area–SWG) in Copenhagen on February 10.
SOURCE; The National Police Coordinating Staff.
WHY THE RIOTING?
Many explanations have been offered for why young people, principally (exclusively, Moslem–SWG) immigrants have set fire to cars and buildings:
*Dissatisfaction with the police’s “visitation zones” in, e.g., Norrebro in Copenhagen.
*Several Danish media’s reprinting of the Mohammed drawing where the prophet was depicted with a bomb in his turban.
*The expulsion of two Tunisians who were accused of plotting the murder of Kurt Westergaard (the cartoonist, who now lives in hiding– SWG) from Morgenavisen/Jyllands-Posten (the newspaper that originally published the cartoons–SWG).
*Inequality and discrimination.
*Boredom during winter vacation.
*The police had been accused in Politiken (leading Danish daily, but still the organ of the now-marginalized Socialist Party–SWG) of racist behavior in dealing with immigrants in Inner Norrebro.
Doc Molloy comments:
This totals 750 fires set in one long weekend! Did you see this reported in any U.S. media? I didn’t. How do you like “boredom during winter vacation” as the explanation?! I don’t know of any other European country more generous and welcoming to its immigrant population than Denmark was, but this is the thanks they get. These immigrants cannot tolerate Denmark’s liberal policies (whether press freedom, or clothing-optional beaches, or even education for women), and this is their real grievance. Many Danes still believe they must try harder to make these immigrants feel “more welcome”; but a growing number finally realize they have a serious problem. Copenhagen’s “sister city”, Malmo, at the other end of the bridge to Sweden, already has a Moslem majority, where fewer and fewer ethnic Swedes are willing to live. Unless there is a dramatic change, Western Europe will be part of “Dar Islam” before 2050.
