With the nation watching, Jon Ritzheimer, the organizer of the protest, said he wanted to see more demonstrations like his, calling it a patriotic sign of resistance against what he deemed the tyranny of Islam in America. “I would love to see more of these events pop up in other states,” …Read More…
On May 29, bikers in Pheonix, Arizona, are holding a “Draw Muhammad” contest outside the mosque at the Islamic Community Center of Phoenix, which is where the two gunmen who opened fire in Garland, Texas, allegedly attended.
The transsexuals at the The New York Times say they are “..confusing “hate speech” with free speech….” The first amendment doesn’t say anything about “hate speech”. And the smarmy imam doesn’t beat around the bush either: “Everyone has a right to be a bigot. Everyone has a right to be racist.” If that is so, let him and his coreligionists show how tolerant they are. I’m looking forward to sing kumbaya with them, what say you? (Breitbart has the story)
The Dalai Lama has a history of one-way dialogues with Muslims, in which he keeps saying the same thing: don’t judge Muslims by a violent and unrepresentative (how does he know they are “unrepresentative”? what does he know about the texts, tenets, attitudes, atmospherics of Islam?) minority, and so on.
And over the past two years, qua Buddhist, and just yesterday, he has presumed to preach to Aung San Suu Kyi about the so-called “Rohingyas” (the Muslim Bengalis who, beginning in the period of British Burma and British India, drifted into Burma) and to “deplore” — how happy the New York Times must have been to report this — what he, and of course all right-thinking people, find to be her strange silence. But her silence is not strange, but admirable. She has said to the Dalai Lama, he complains, that things “are not so simple,” that they are “more complicated” than he thinks.
What everyone is missing is that Aung San Suu Kyi is a very intelligent, strong-willed lady. And she will not be stampeded into what the herd demands of her — that she “denounce the Burmese monks” for their “mistreatment of the Rohingyas.” Her late husband, Dr. Michael Aris, taught at Oxford. He was a friend and colleague of the Professor of Sanskrit at Oxford, Ernst Gombrich’s son Richard. And Richard Gombrich’s son was also a friend of the late David McCutchion, whose field of special study were the temples and art of Bengal. And it was David McCutchion who saw what Muslims had done to Buddhists and Buddhist monuments, temples, stelae, statuary, in Bengal; it was David McCutchion who expressed the wish that Pakistan had never existed.
Aung San Suu Kyi doesn’t need any lessons either from the Dali Lama, or from the editors of The New York Times, about Burma and the “Rohingyas.” She knows something about them. And that distinguishes her from the undifferentiated mass or herd that is supposed to speak for the “international community” (as in “the international community deplores the behavior of the Burmese government toward the Rohingyas.”)
She may ultimately succumb to such pressure but for now, she is standing firm, secure in her superior knowledge. She is, for this withstanding, to be admired and praised and, whenever possible, emulated.
The real story about the Australian woman wanting to bring her five kids back into the country, the media in this country have a lot to answer to.
Sydney’s Islamic State butchers Khaled Sharrouf and Mohamed Elomar have been accused of buying, raping and torturing Yazidi slave girls in Syria and teaching their young children how to torture the girls.
One woman has described how Sharrouf’s children threatened to behead them and film their deaths.
“(They) said that they would make a video while cutting off our heads,” the woman, who says she was bought as a slave by Sharrouf told the ABC’s 7.30 Report last night.
“The children were holding knives and told us that they were going to kills us. They were calling us infidels ‘all Yazidis are infidels’, they said, the whole world must convert to Islam.”
The women reported the harsh, violent existence in Raqqa was wearing down Sharrouf’s family who often pleaded with him to take them back to Australia.
“The family were always complaining, saying they can’t live in that place,” one woman said. “They were crying and quarrelling and demanding to return to Australia.
The bleeding hearts want these kids back in Australia, keep them where they are, they are not human and seriously have no future as humans.

AMIRIYAT FALLUJA, Iraq — On one side of a rickety bridge that spans a narrow stretch of the Euphrates River were panicked families on the run from Islamic State forces, hoping to escape Anbar Province and reach safety in Baghdad. On the other side were Iraqi Army officers and Shiite militiamen, under orders to keep the bridge closed because of fears that militants could slip in among the displaced civilians.
“It’s like the other side is Europe and this is Asia,” said Ehab Talib, 27, who was waiting to meet relatives fleeing the fighting in Anbar, the Sunni-dominated region whose capital, Ramadi, recently fell to the Islamic State.
With new waves of civilians fleeing violence in Anbar there are now more internally displaced Iraqis, nearly three million, than there were at the height of the bloody sectarian fighting that followed the American invasion, when millions of Iraqis were able to flee to Syria. That door is closed because of that country’s own civil war. And now doors in Iraq are closing, too, worsening sectarian tensions as the Shiite authorities restrict where fleeing Sunnis can seek safety.
“We are all Iraqis,” said Marwan Abdul, a doctor’s assistant, standing outside his mobile clinic here. “This wouldn’t happen in any other country.”
The violence unleashed by the Sunni militants of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, has hit Sunnis disproportionately. Nearly 85 percent of the Iraqis on the run are Sunnis, and they often find themselves seeking safety in Shiite-dominated areas, including Baghdad, where, as at the bridge here, they are frequently treated as security threats rather than as suffering fellow citizens.

Waleed Aly, former spokesman for the Islamic Council of Victoria and now lecturer at Monash University’s Global Terrorism Research Centre, overlooks one critical fact in asking us to treat returning jihadists as a “potential gift”:
Take the other major recent development: Australians who’ve gone to Syria only to discover that beneath Islamic State’s utopian promise is a gruesome lie. Now they’re trying to get out and come home… But it’s telling that we can see nothing beyond this; that we so resolutely refuse even to acknowledge this potential gift because we’re too busy reiterating our hatred for these people… Are these people of more use to us stuck in Syria than they would be telling other Australians about the horrors of IS with vastly more credibility than anyone else?
Here is what Aly overlooks: these Australians did not go to Syria on a “utopian promise” of peace and love. They went after being sold videos of decapitations, murders, crucifixions, mass murder and the enslavement of women. They went after hearing sermons promising death to infidels and hatred of countries such as ours.
This is why they are no “gift” to us, and why so many Australians both hate and fear those who return. Most know the Islamic State has actually delivered in full in all those bloody promises it made the jihadists, and that the disappointments of life under its rule are more likely to involve purely mundane matters of pay, food, comfort and loneliness that, frankly, are of little import or benefit to us.
Indeed, their greatest use now lies in being pariahs, a terrible warning of what awaits those who would follow.

More dreck against the brave Buddhist monk Wirathu, who is trying to protect Burma from the jihad and Mohammedan invaders. This comes from a scribbler who’s name is Shashank Bengali, and that is no accident because he works for the global umma who wants to make us all Islamic.
Monk dubbed ‘Buddhist Bin Laden’ targets Myanmar’s persecuted Muslims
Buddhists are not doing so well in neighbouring Bangladesh or in India, where the solders of allah nearly wiped them out. It is not that Ashin Wirathu targets them, it is that he has multiple fartwas on his head and that he is a target for Muslim assassins.
He’s been described as the “Buddhist Bin Laden,” but Ashin Wirathu thinks he has more in common with the world’s most famous fictional spy.
“James Bond is a nationalist,” the cherub-faced monk said in a recent interview. Flashing a smile, he offered a vague recollection of a movie in which 007, in order to extract information from a woman, took her to bed.

His questionable reading of Bond aside, the firebrand Wirathu firmly says he is defending Myanmar against the people he views as the country’s main enemy: its Muslims.
Yangon, Myanmar – Hundreds of demonstrators, including Buddhist monks, have marched in Yangon against what they say is “bullying” by the international community about Myanmar’s stance on the Rohingya ethnic minority group.*
*There is not, and there has never been a “Rohingya ethnic minority group”. These people are Bangladeshi Muslim invaders who infiltrated Burma to claim the land for Islam.
Thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar in recent months claiming fear of persecution, and many are still languishing at sea as they wait to seek asylum in Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand.
A deeper look into the history of Turkey reveals that, unfortunately, Turkey has never been either truly secular or democratic. In Turkey, freedom of conscience and religion is respected — but only if you are a practicing Sunni Muslim.
The problem is that “modern” Turkey claims to be a “secular” republic; a secular republic is supposed to treat all people — Muslims and non-Muslims — equally. The objective of the Diyanet (Presidency of Religious Affairs), on the other hand, is to keep religion (Islam) under the control of the state, and to keep the people under the control of the state by means of religion.
“Those who are not genuine Turks can have only one right in the Turkish fatherland, and that is to be a servant, to be a slave. We are in the most free country of the world. They call this Turkey.” — Mahmut Esat Bozkurt, Turkey’s first Minister of Justice, 1930.
When many Western analysts discuss the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP) in Turkey, they rightfully criticize it for its religious intolerance, authoritarianism and lack of respect for secular principles and minorities. They also tend to compare the AKP to former Kemalist governments, and draw a distinction between the Islamist AKP and former non-Islamist governments.
They claim that Turkey was “secular” and somewhat “democratic,” until the AKP came to power.
A deeper look into the history of Turkey, however, reveals that, unfortunately, Turkey has never been either truly secular or democratic.
The modern Turkish state, since its founding in 1923, has never kept its hands off religion. It has engaged in religious matters on almost all levels — by institutionalizing Sunni Islam and by persecuting (or annihilating) other faiths.
Intolerance, even hatred, for non-Muslims was openly promoted — even by the heads of the state — from day one.
