Moe’s Jihad News
* That’ll be the day! Exactly because of our trusted ‘allies’ Bin Laden got away…
To defeat Taliban militants, foreign troops led by NATO and the U.S. military in Afghanistan should come under the command of the Afghan government, otherwise the war will drag on, a government-owned newspaper said on Tuesday.
Denmarks poor widdle Muslims:
Imam Ahmed sez Â “We are being mentally tortured,”Â
Sheik yer’mami sez: “time to pack up, imam. The desert is full of pretty camels this time of year…”
“We are being mentally tortured,” Imam Ahmed said at his mosque, an anonymous building that looks more like an apartment complex than a house of worship. “The cartoons are an insult against Islam, an attempt by right-wing forces in this country to get a rise out of the Muslim community and so portray us as against Danish values.”
Soren Krarup, a retired priest and leading voice in the party, said the Muslim response to the cartoons showed that Islam was not compatible with Danish customs.Â “Muslims who come here reject our culture,” he said. “Muslim immigration is a way for Muslims to conquer us, just as they have done for the past 1,400 years.”

In fighting Jihad, America’s greatest challenge remains understanding and confronting theÂ ideologyÂ that provides the basis for Jihadist terrorism. Efforts to clearly define this enemy ideology recently have beenÂ underminedÂ by theÂ Department of Homeland SecurityÂ (DHS), theÂ National Counterterrorism CenterÂ (NCTC), and the State Department in promoting a “terror lexicon” that recommends federal government employees avoid terms such asÂ “jihad,”Â “jihadist,”Â “Islamist,”Â ry=mujahideen&v%3Aproject=clusty-gov&v%3Apersonality=&v%3Asources=911″>“mujahideen,”Â andÂ “caliphate”Â when addressing issues involving terrorism. The argument made by the DHS, NCTC, and others is that the use of such terms will aid in the “recruitment” of Muslims to join terrorist organizations, or will alternatively provide “legitimacy” to religious aspects of terrorist efforts.
