Algeria: Hostages die in botched rescue bid after Islamists seize Algeria gas plant

On a tip from Camp of the Saints:

Donald Douglas is doing great work aggregating the latest news out of Algeria over on his Twitter Feed and at his site, here and here.

Thirty hostages reported killed in Algeria assault | Reuters

 Thirty hostages and at least 11 Islamist militants were killed on Thursday when Algerian forces stormed a desert gas plant 

Hostages in Algeria ‘made to wear explosives’

FRANCE 24 spoke to one of the hostages at the BP-Statoil-Sonatrach gas plant in eastern Algeria on Wednesday, the site of a deadly pre-dawn raid in which over 150 Algerians and around 40 Western foreigners were taken by Islamist militants.
FRANCE 24 has spoken to a French national who says he is one of the 150 hostages at the gas facility in southeast Algeria. The hostage said that they have been forced to wear explosive belts and that this militants are “heavily armed”.

Continued below the fold!

FOREIGN governments are voicing growing alarm over the safety of their citizens seized by Islamists at a gas plant in the Algerian desert, where a dramatic rescue operation left many hostages dead.

As the families of the hostages and the countries involved endured a tense wait for definitive news from the raid on the In Amenas plant, local officials said Algerian special forces had taken control of the residential compound at the complex, where most of the hundreds of hostages were being held, but were still surrounding the gas facility which had not yet been secured.

According to Algerian Communication Minister Mohamed Said, “several people” were killed or wounded and a “large number” of hostages freed at the site, jointly operated by British oil giant BP, Norway’s Statoil and state-run Algerian energy firm Sonatrach.

Japan confirmed the safety of three Japanese hostages, but 14 others remained unaccounted for.

“True pure and honest” Paki sharia

Sherry Rehman update:

Paki envoy to U.S. accused of blasphemy, could get death sentence

This is the kind of law that Islamic supremacists, purveyors of the “Islamophobia” myth, and their Leftist allies want to bring to the West.

“Pakistan’s envoy to US faces potentially deadly blasphemy accusation,” by Fakhar Rehman and F. Brinley Bruton for NBC News, January 17 (thanks to JW):

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – A petition accusing Pakistan’s ambassador to the United States of committing blasphemy has been filed with the country’s Supreme Court.

This is quite surprising in light of this:

Sherry’s mouth is a well oiled taqiyya machine. In fact, she sounds just like imam Rauf:

Islam, she said, stands for equality, unity, tolerance, and rights of people and the global religion….. blah blah blah…..

In other news:

There’s nothing like an arrogant, Islamo-supremacist harridan with a $20.000 dollar Hermes Kelly bag representing a country jihadist fiefdom of 80% illiterates earning less than a dollar a day and nukes that are within reach of the Taliban. Hina Rabbani will not be stoned for adultery; that’s for the little people.

Paki Foreign Minister Hina Rabbani Khar has been accused of adultery. The punishment for adultery, as per Sharia law of Pakistan, is stoning, and not even Hina Rabbani Khar and Bilawal Zardari Bhutto are immune from it.

Curiously, she seems to get away with it.

 Hina Rabbani Khar  is a venomous Islamo-supremacist who  accused India of engaging in “war-mongering” in the aftermath of clashes and attack and the  Paki  murder of two Indian soldiers at the Line of Control (LoC) in Jammu and Kashmir.  (A nasty piece of work)

Tahir-ul-Qadri wants “true, pure and honest” sharia:

Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri: “A Complex Man Full Of Contradictions”

What lot of tosh. Tahir ul-Qadri is an open book. Its called the Koran. He himself is as phoney as his 600 page BS fartwa against terrorism.

He promises to bring “true democracy” to Pakistan even though critics claim he does not bat an eyelid when seeking the help of undemocratic forces to overthrow the elected government.

Knowing that, I find nothing “contradictory” or “complex” about his call for a “true, pure, and honest” democracy in Pakistan. It’s patently clear that what he wants is the only type of “democracy” fanatics like him are prepared to embrace: “true, pure and honest” sharia.    (Scaramouche)

 Ul-Qadri is the SOB who concocted the blasphemy laws in Pakistan, which he wants to see implemented in the west:

Treason, the expressway to a stellar career in the Obamster administration.

Read it. its important to know what kind of turds float to the top in the Obamessiah administration.

Benghazi Bagman, Denis McDonough, to be named Obama’s Next Chief of Staff  (Pamela Geller)

Vacant, like a tin drum. McDonut

Hagel, Brennan, Kerry … and now Denis McDonough. President Barack Obama plans to name Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough as his next chief of staff, a Democratic source briefed on the plans tells POLITICO. McDonough would replace Jack Lew, the communist Obama nominated to be his new Treasury secretary.

Denis McDonough, Deputy National Security Advisor and a former senior fellow at the uber far left Center for American Progress, is the man most responsible for orchestrating the Benghazi jihad cover-up.   McDonough rewrote the CIA talking points on Benghazi, misrepresenting the video, when the true motive behind the terrorist attack was well known. But lying to the American people was what was most important to Obama, not American lives, to ensure his re-election.

Hassassian rhymes with ‘Assassin’

Beats me why anyone would be surprised about the venom of this thug. The demand that Jews commit suicide, submit to Islam or live as dhimmies under the sharia in their ancestral homeland goes back way beyond the days of Yasser Arafartbastard.

“Palestinian” Ambassador: ‘There Is No Two-State Solution’

Last night, the Palestinian ambassador to the United Kingdom, Manuel Hassassian, spoke in Parliament at the invitation of MP Jeremy Corbyn. Mr. Hassassian, according to blogger Richard Millett, claimed that Israel, as we know it, should cease to exist:

There is no two state solution. Democracies don’t fight each other. If Israel is a democracy I would claim that the Palestinians are also a democracy. If democracies cannot fight each other then why not have one state? One man, one vote. Israel will never continue to exist as a pariah state. Israel could never continue to fight wars against the Palestinians, against the Arabs and the Muslims. The United States is not going to be Israel’s strategic ally for time immemorial. And today we have 1.5 billion Muslims. In 20 years we will have 2 billion. And those 2 billion, forget about politics, from a religious perspective will not allow Israel to continue desecrating their religious rights [in Jerusalem]. And then what?

This is the representative of the Palestinian Authority, which is supposed to be Israel’s partner for peace. Seems like it will be difficult in the future to negotiate a two-state solution when one side would prefer that the other simply vanish.

More from the Elder:

The “moderate” PA also routinely calls Jews “apes and pigs”

One of the more interesting observations about the current kerfuffle over Morsi being caught calling Jews “apes and pigs” is that this rhetoric is mainstream not only in the Muslim Brotherhood – but by the so-called “moderate” Palestinian Authority.You know, the people that the UN just overwhelmingly decided were deserving of a state.

Thanks to Palestinian Media Watch, we have tons of documentation of PA officials and PA media using that exact same terminology:

STOP the witch hunt against Rep. Bachmann

Comments are back up. Gates of Vienna is (still) down in what looks like another nasty case of Google sabotage.

The situation in Algeria is Ugly:

Dear DHFC Supporter,

Earlier this week, House Speaker John Boehner was presented with a petition bearing 178,000+ names demanding the removal of Congresswoman Michele Bachmann from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Below you’ll find the letter I sent to Speaker Boehner praising him for his decision to reappoint Congresswoman Bachmann to this committee and urging him to hold is ground.

It is not often that the Freedom Center wades into a battle like this. And although we cannot advocate either way for Congresswoman Bachmann’s position on the committee, we can and will go to great lengths to defend her. Why? Because in the long run, the battle that Michele Bachmann is waging on the House Intelligence Committee may be more important to the well-being and security of Americans than all the battles over budgets and debt ceilings combined.

This is why the Freedom Center has launched a counter petition to the one a radical group gave to Speaker Boehner. As a staunch supporter of the Center and someone who cares deeply about America’s security at home and abroad, I’m counting on you to add your name to the Stop the Witch Hunt Against Rep. Bachmann petition and share it with your family, friends and colleagues.

Please follow this link right now to sign the petition. 

 

Thanks,

David

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi Caught in Lie about Working for NASA

Egypt PM Mohammed Morsi:

“I conducted research for NASA and worked for NASA.”

Every Muslim Brother is by nature a pathological liar. This jackass is no rocket scientist.

Michelle Bachmann is right: Keith Ellison should be investigated

Not only Keith Ellison. The whole mob of infil-traitors in the white house:

 “I am not now, nor have I ever been, associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.”

BHO:  “I have never been a Muslim.”

Why Michele Bachmann Is Right About Keith Ellison

Posted By Robert Spencer / Daily Mailer,FrontPage

Editors’ note: While Representative Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has been vindicated for suggesting that Muslim Brotherhood elements have infiltrated the U.S. government, the left-wing activist group, People For the American Way (PFAW), has launched a petition drive against Rep. Bachmann in an effort to remove her from the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence. Frontpage editors felt this was an opportune time to put a spotlight on other attackers of the Congresswoman and their troubling associations, and so we deemed it important to rerun Robert Spencer’s article, “Why Michele Bachmann Is Right About Keith Ellison,” from our July 23, 2012 issue, below:

Congresswoman Michele Bachmann (R-MN) has accused Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) of having a “long record of being associated” with the Hamas-linked Council on American–Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Evoking the days of McCarthyism, a common charge being leveled at Bachmann these days, Ellison responded: “I am not now, nor have I ever been, associated with the Muslim Brotherhood.” He accused Bachmann of religious bigotry:

“I think she has a very narrowly prescribed definition of who belongs and who doesn’t. And there’s a whole bloc of people she don’t like. I think she thinks that we’re evil because we don’t understand God the way she does….It’s also about marginalizing and alienating a certain group of Americans who she does not view are American enough.”

Not content with that, he accused her of petty attention-seeking:

“But you have to ask yourself, you know, why did she make this so public? Why did she seem to be seeking public attention for these allegations she was making? If she really had actionable intelligence, why wouldn’t she go to the agencies that investigate these things? I think the answer is clear that she wanted attention. That was her goal all along.”

The only problem with Ellison’s wounded-martyr stance toward Bachmann’s accusations is that what she said is true: Ellison really does have a “long record of being associated” with Hamas-linked CAIR and the Muslim Brotherhood.

As long ago as 2006, Ellison’s closeness to Nihad Awad, co-founder of Hamas-linked CAIR, was a matter of public record. Awad, who notoriously said in 1994 that he was “in support of the Hamas movement,” spoke at fundraisers for Ellison, raising considerable sums for his first Congressional race. According to investigative journalist Patrick Poole, Ellison has appeared frequently at CAIR events since then, despite the fact that CAIR is an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case — so named by the Justice Department. CAIR operatives have repeatedly refused to denounce Hamas and Hizballah as terrorist groups. Several former CAIR officials have been convicted of various crimes related to jihad terror. CAIR’s cofounder and longtime Board chairman (Omar Ahmad), as well as its chief spokesman (Ibrahim Hooper), have made Islamic supremacist statements. Its California chapter distributed posters telling Muslims not to talk to the FBI.
