Wally can’t countÂ

We’ve also hadÂ nearly 15,500 people killed by Islamic terroristsÂ inÂ more than 8,500 terrorist attacks. But that’s OK, because terrorism isÂ only an “irritant” that “kills relatively few people”. Â (Tim Blair)
More often than not, Wilson has taken a position in opposition to that of the Liberal Party. The list is long, but it includes issues as various as industry assistance, public broadcasting, renewable energy targets, tobacco packaging, industrial relations policy, health insurance, bikie laws and gay marriage, to name but a few.
To describe a person who has been an articulate public opponent of the Liberal Party on so many of the issues which have defined the politics of recent years as a Liberal Party “partisan” seems to me, with all due respect to van Onselen, to be absurd.
I do think van Onselen has been particularly unfair on Wilson. And maybe conservatives have been unfair on Brandis, now revealing himself as a man up for the fight:
But some things never change, like the reaction of the claque of bilious pseudo-intellectuals who constitute what passes for a left-wing commentariat in this country. Mike Carlton, Catherine Deveney, Van Badham and their ilk were nothing if not boorishly predictable.
They and their followers unleashed a storm of hatred and bile against Wilson on social media, the like of which I have never seen. The irony that these people pose as the enemies of “hate speech” was lost on them, if not on others.
I do think that if anything about Wilson’s appointment deserves comment it is the utterly vicious reaction to it by people so terrified of freedom that they unleash the hate speech they claim to condemn.

ButÂ Â Ibrahim Abaza, a leader of the Salafists in Egypt, said that the Muslim Brotherhood is even worse than the Jews are. You see, the jews are an external enemy and they don’t influence Muslims to act contrary to their religion, but the Brotherhood is more dangerous to Islam than the Jews becsuse they are tearing Islam aparts from the inside, and contributing ignorance and stupidity and deviation of Islamic doctrine and deviant ideas among the people of Islam.
It feels so important to be the yardstick of evil for 1.5 billion people.

The Jihadist Cleansing of Christianity from Muslim Countries
Fox NewsÂ reported that in Iraq, “Christians are afraid to put up a Christmas tree or other decorations, according to one Christian pastor in Iraq.

Christian churches must be regularly guarded, but congregants are even more on edge during their holiest days.”

The attack came on Monday, a day after a suicide bomb attack in the same city killed at least 17 people in a train station.
“A blast happened inside a trolleybus in Volgograd, according to preliminary reports, 10 people died, 10 were wounded,” said Irina Gogoleva, spokeswoman of South Regional Centre of Russia’s Interior Ministry.
The blasts have raised safety concerns in the region ahead of the Winter Olympics 2014 due in February in Sochi, west of Volgograd. (Al Jizz)

“The attempt to appropriate Jesus as a victimized ‘Palestinian’ by the very Muslims who are slaughtering Christians all over the Middle East and who have driven Arab Christians out of Bethlehem is typical, disgusting, and must continually be exposed.”
Muhammad, profit of Islam, never set foot on the site. Mohammedan claims about a mythical ‘night journey’ are absurd. In fact, Mohammedanism has no claim on the temple mount at all.
All the propaganda about Muhammed’s mythical night journey from the Temple Mount can be dated to comparatively recent times, sometime in the 19th century. The only reference in the Qur’an to this fable says that Allah took Muhammed from “the Sacred Mosque” in Mecca “to the farthest Mosque,” which the Muslims claim is Al-Aqsa. …Â By Janet TasseÂ Story atÂ AmericanThinkerÂ thanks to Mullah, pbuh….
The Muslim POTUS, Hildebeast, Susan Rice and the spinmeisters from the enemedia should hang for this. Â Â The lies told after the attack by administration figures were appalling. So, too, is the unwillingness of Hillary Clinton to take responsibility for what happened. But the administration’s seeming lack of interest in bringing those responsible to justice is a scandal of an altogether higher order.
Now, they’re doubling down. Daniel Greenfield calls them out on it:
Major media outlets have a new disinformation tactic.
Instead of a fact-check, which used to be their old tactic, they drop a voluminous multi-part essay that claims to be the product of intensive reporting, but doesn’t really offer much of anything new, except an attempt at reviving a discredited liberal narrative, which its own reporting doesn’t support.

Last year Ann Coulter wrote that Kwanzaa was only observed by “presidential–statement writers andÂ white female public school teachers.”Â She was almost right. Kwanzaa is celebrated by a few groups but none of which are more well represented than white female liberal public school teachers (WFLPST).Â This is true because most public schools are closed during Kwanzaa season and of course the teachers don’t work during the week of December 26 to January 1st. Consequently, all but the hardest of hard core leftists will blow off Kwanzaa.

Its like sorting the ‘moderates’ from the ‘radicals’- I say let allah sort ’em out!
This will do nothing to stop those who insist that the Muslim Brotherhood is “moderate.” But open Brotherhood supporters in the U.S. such as DHS adviser Mohamed Elibiary should be asked about it. They won’t be, however. “Report: Muslim Brotherhood signs pact with al-Qaeda,” by Roi Kais forÂ Ynet News, December 26 (thanks to JW):
The Justice Department’s decision to charge a white man with a federal hate crime for a “knockout game”-style attack against a black victim has raised questions about why the administration waited until now to speak up on cases that, for months, largely have involved white victims.
The DOJ has finally charged a knockout game suspect – who is white.
I’m glad the DOJ has stepped forward, but what took so long? And why this case? Â Does Eric Holder’s inaction regarding previous crimes involving blacks attacking whites actually reflect his own hate crime?
Â Islam is not a race, Muslims are NOT a race
(so how can one be a racist). It’s a political doctrine in the guise of ‘religion’. You can’t be racist against a political doctrine or against a ‘religion’.
Most blacks convert to Islam in prison.
Islamic da’awa doctors tell primitive blacks that Christianity is a white man’s religion, whereas Mohammedanism is a ‘black thing’ and therefore much more suitable. Â Black criminals are converting to Islam in droves. Islamic clerics are rather careful not to reveal the texts about ugly Arab racism and supremacy, which holds blacks in contempt and equates them with slaves.
The year 2013 marks the centenary of the reported founding of the Canaanite Temple in Newark, New Jersey. That was the very earliest form of an indigenous African-American Islam, one completely distinct from normative Islam, the 1,400-year-old religion from Arabia founded by Muhammad. From this movement came Elijah Muhammad, Malcolm X, and Louis Farrakhan.
The century divides into two main eras: inventing a new religion (1913-1975) and moving toward normative Islam (1975-2013).
Timothy Drew (1886-1929), an American black who called himself Noble Drew Ali, founded the Newark temple and then, in 1925 another, better verified organization, the oddly named Moorish Science Temple of America. His ideas derived mainly from four unlikely sources â€” pan-Africanists, the Shriners, Ahmadiyya Muslims, and white racists.
- From pan-Africanists such as Edward Wilmot Blyden and Marcus Garvey, he appropriated the notion of Christianity as the religion of whites and Islam that of non-whites. As a practicing Shriner, Noble Drew Ali borrowed traits from this organization, such as the use of “Noble” before one’s name, the requirement that men wear fezzes, and a network of lodges. From Ahmadis he took Arabic personal names, the crescent and star motif, the prohibition of pork, and the notion of Jesus traveling to India. From white racists came the idea that accomplished black Americans are not Africans at all but “Moors,” “Moorish-Americans,” or “Asiatics,” a mythical northwest African people, the Moabites, who migrated to sub-Saharan Africa.
- From this unique mixture, Noble Drew Ali concocted the 64-page scripture of his religion, The Holy Koran of the Moorish Science Temple of America (Chicago, 1927) which, despite its name, has almost nothing to do with the normative Islamic Koran but is largely plagiarized from two texts, one occult Christian and the other Tibetan. Even more strangely, his Koran focuses not on the figure of Muhammad but on Jesus.
“ISA”, as Mohammedan’s call the messiah of the Christians, will return on the side of Muhammad, abolish the jiziya, kill the swine (the Christians) and break the cross. The Islamic Isa is very different from the Jesus of the Christians…..
