A Message From The Cave Or From The Grave?

Bin Laden issues Iraq message

Osama Bin Laden, the al-Qaeda leader, has released a new audiotape calling on fighters in Iraq to unite and stand shoulder to shoulder.

1_231517_1_5.jpg

In the tape broadcast by Al Jazeera on Monday, a voice sounding like bin Laden admitted that mistakes have been made in Iraq and exhorted the fighters to rectify them.
“Some of you have been lax in one duty, which is to unite your ranks,” bin Laden said. “Beware of division … The Muslim world is waiting for you to gather under one banner.”
In the audio recording, entitled “a message to the people of Iraq”, bin Laden called on tribal leaders and the leaders of armed groups to initiate an agreement between the different groups.

“The interest of the Islamic nation surpasses that of a group,” he said.

In recent months Sunni tribal groups have formed alliances and worked with US forces to confront al-Qaeda in Iraq.

Prisoners riot in Israeli jail

1_231507_1_5.jpg

Clashes have flared in an Israeli jail, with about 1,000 Palestinian prisoners attacking prison guards and torching the tents where they had been held.

Thirty people were injured in the incident which occurred early on Monday at the Ketziot prison in the southern Negev desert, a prison spokesman said.
Ian Domnitz, a spokesman for the Israel Prisons Authority, said the violence broke out after guards began searching prisoners’ bunks for contraband.

The Prisoners Club, the main group representing Palestinians held in Israel, termed the cell searches “provocative”.

Ketziot is set up like a military camp, with security prisoners quartered in tents rather than buildings.

Riots quelled

In Monday’s riot, prisoners set 10 tents on fire and attacked the guards, wounding 15 of them, Domnitz said.

Prison officers moved in to quell the riot, injuring 15 prisoners, he said.

Four prisoners were hospitalised, with one critically wounded by a “non-lethal weapon”, Domnitz said.

“The weapon was used in response to the endangerment of the lives of prison officers in the cell block,” he said.

In the West Bank, Nabil Abu Rdeneh, a spokesman for Mahmoud Abbas, the Palestinian president, accused Israel of conducting a “repression campaign” against the prisoners.

* This is what you have to expect from Mahmud Abbas…


He said the prison guards had used clubs, stun grenades and tear gas to disperse the crowd and said 250 people were injured.

EUrabia: The Natives Flee, While Socialist Multi-Culti-Elites Import Muhammedan Proletariat To Replace Them

aexodus.jpg

The Dutch are leaving their homeland in record numbers – the first nine months of 2006 saw some 100,000 depart, an increase of 12 percent over the previous year. Also, according to the “Emigration Monitor,” 32 percent of the Dutch population is seriously considering emigration, as opposed to 26 percent last year, a 23 percent increase. To make their way easier, entrepreneurs have established an “Emigration Fair,” which Pieter Dorsman reports on:

Setting up a farm in New Zealand? Start up a business in Tasmania or do you like to cash in on British Columbia’s construction boom? All these options were presented at a real ‘Emigration Fair’ in Amsterdam earlier this month which drew record crowds. Whatever pessimism there is in and about Europe and no matter how commentators try to figure out if this exodus is real, the market has smelled the opportunity and knows how to respond. As opposed to “Give me your tired, your poor” many jurisdictions in the new world have discovered that the disgruntled Dutch are anything but tired and poor. They’re young, affluent, well-educated, entrepreneurial, fluent in English.

But not only the Dutch: Germans, Brits, Scandinavians are leaving their homelands in record numbers. An unprecedented exodus. Not because of poverty, but to escape the misguided social experiments of their governments.

Update on the Dutch Intifadah:

Media now reports that the sister of the terrorist Bilal Bajaka is a Dutch judge. That’s right, a judge. In the Netherlands you can become a judge while you’re brothers are terrorists!

Today also a media car was attacked while filming the burned out vehicles in front of the police station at the Allebeplein. “Youths” who did not agree with the filming threw a rock through the windshield of the camera crew. And although there is now special police security around the police station, the police was not able to apprehend the attackers. I guess that is just how it goes when you want to appease at all cost.

jihadriotsallabepleinamsterdam2.jpgjihadriotsallabepleinamsterdam1.jpgjihadriotsallabepleinamsterdam3.jpg

Biggest Dutch Weblog geenstijl, reports some interesting facts in the case. They write about how the Dutch authorities try to spin this jihad attack as just an act of a mentally disturbed person. But also name some interesting facts the other media outlets have not yet reported.

It seems that Bilal has shouted in Arabic when he attacked the police officers. This could very well be something like “Allah Akbar”, but thats something the Dutch authorities don’t want the public to know.

Also they report that Bilal has visited the nearby mosque, before doing his attack. He might even have received his weapon of attack there. Because he had just escaped his supervisor of the mental institution a half hour before. It’s unlikely, though not impossible, that he already had the knife when he escaped.

Dutch newspaper de Telegraaf reports that according to a manager of the mental clinic Bilal was not schizophrenic criminal, he was friendly and cooperative guy, who was never was aggressive. In other words he was just treated for his mere suicidal tendencies. He also was from a well to do family and was a smart student. And a Muslim.

The Fjordman comment:

What we are faced with is a totalitarian takeover of much of Europe through a cooperation between internal Fascists, the EU, and external Fascists, Muslims, and momentum is currently in their favor.

Regarding the “racist” label: I have never spent much time worrying
about skin color, but I do notice I am starting to grow a tad tired of
these accusations. The truth is that white people of European
background are currently among the planet’s least racist groups.

Almost all racist violence in Europe involves white victims and
non-white perps, frequently Muslims.
Western Europeans have recently
accepted more immigration from alien cultures in a shorter period of
time than any society has done peacefully in human history.
If we want
a break we have the right to do so, and if we feel overwhelmed it’s
because we are.

What we are dealing with here is not “immigration,” it’s colonization,
as well as probably the greatest betrayal in Western history committed
by the very people who are supposed to be our leaders. If non-Europeans have the right to resist colonization then so do Europeans. And if we are “racists” for desiring the same degree of self-determination and self-preservation as all other ethnic groups on the planet then hell, maybe we’ll just have to learn to live with the label.

Europe isn’t much to look at right now, but I do not want to end up in
a situation where thousands of years of what once was a great
civilization go up in smoke because people were too scared of being
called bad names.
Neither do I want to lose because we were paralyzed worrying about imaginary Fascists while the real Fascists took over.

American Muslims Must Learn To Accept Free Speech

otwbanner.jpg

And I’m not just talking about Muslims. A lot of people need to take a time-out instead of getting all upset anytime someone says something you don’t agree with.
Almost every day, I read about some group upset something was said. It’s called racist, insensitive, intolerant, and I’m finding I’m repeating myself on these points every few columns. At the same time, liberals call conservatives every name they can think of, because when THEY do it, that’s okay because THEY are the enlightened.


So you can imagine the head-shaking I performed when I saw this….

Local Muslims upset by UW campus event

By Janet I. Tu
Seattle Times religion reporter
A controversial week of events, billed as Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, launches at the University of Washington and some 100 other colleges next week — drawing condemnations from Muslim groups here and across the country.
The UW College Republicans, organizer of the local events, say the week is intended to foster awareness of the terrorist threat posed by a small number of extremists within Islam.
But some local Muslims say the week fosters Islamophobia and racism and attempts to paint all Muslims as terrorists.

*
Islamo-Fascism Awareness Week, launched this year by a recent graduate of Duke University and sponsored by the Los Angeles-based David Horowitz Freedom Center, is intended to “confront the two Big Lies of the political left: that George Bush created the war on terror and that Global Warming is a greater danger to Americans than the terrorist threat,” according to its Web site.

The Web site includes suggested campus activities such as holding sit-ins outside women’s studies departments to protest “the silence of feminists over the oppression of women in Islam” and holding a memorial service for the “victims of Islamo-Fascist violence around the world.”
Again, we’ve bent over backwards for Muslims in America, and what do we get as thanks? Well, certainly not always “Thanks.”

Bush renews Saudi Arabia as anti-terror ally despite concerns

By P. Parameswaran WASHINGTON (AFP) – US President George W. Bush on Friday renewed Saudi Arabia as a key anti-terrorism ally despite concerns over its track record and fears it is exporting extremist ideology.

I hereby certify that Saudi Arabia is cooperating with efforts to combat international terrorism and that the proposed assistance will help facilitate that effort,” the president said in a memorandum to US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice to free up aid from Washington to Riyadh.

A little more than a month ago, the US Treasury undersecretary for terrorism and financial intelligence, Stuart Levey, charged that Saudi Arabia had failed to prosecute the bankrollers of terrorist groups.

Australia discovers Fat Anglos and Solid Muslims

A professor of nutrition thinks that culture is more important than health:

When is a fat child not really fat, after all?

THE obesity epidemic among Australian children has been grossly overstated, according to a study that reveals the problem is concentrated among poorer families and some ethnic groups…

The study showed more than 17 per cent of children from a Middle Eastern background were obese, 8 per cent of Aboriginal children and 7 per cent of those from a southern European background.

This compared with 5.7 per cent of Anglo-Australian children…

Dr O’Dea said it was important to work in culturally sensitive ways with communities to determine the best way to reduce the risk of diabetes.

“We want to avoid stigmatising already socially marginalised groups,” she said.

She described as “a disaster” plans by federal Labor to weigh and measure every child starting school. She said in some cultures fatness was not seen as a problem, and initiatives might need to focus on increasing physical activity rather than weight loss.

In other cultures, it was unrealistic to expect girls to engage in high-level physical activity.

“Fatness is here to stay,” she said.

I think the good doctor means that girls find it hard to run in a burqa – which turns fat into a problem best left alone.

* ‘Cultural sensitivity’ is the express way to dhimmitude.

Smokers irrational, like animals, says Malaysian cleric 

* From the ‘Jihad-is-better-for-you’– department: 

KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) – Smokers are like animals that do not think rationally, a Malaysian hardline Islamist cleric said at the weekend.

Islam discourages the faithful from smoking, just as it bars them from alcohol, said Nik Aziz Nik Mat, spiritual leader of the Parti Islam se-Malaysia, which seeks to turn the country into an Islamic state that punishes thieves by lopping off their hands.

Smokers did not use their brains because they continued to let themselves be addicted to the habit, despite knowing it was bad for their health, the Star newspaper quoted Nik Aziz as saying.

“People who do not want to think are like animals,” Nik Aziz told the launch of an anti-smoking campaign in Kota Baru, the capital of Malaysia’s northeastern state of Kelantan, which is his party’s last remaining bastion.

Nik Aziz, himself a non-smoker, has earlier said smokers would not be included among his party’s candidates at Malaysia’s next general elections, widely expected to be called as soon as early next year.

‘Muslim Live 8’ raises money for Darfur

By Lucie Godeau

Thousands of British Muslims gathered at Wembley Arena for a charity peace concert dubbed “Muslim Live 8” to raise money for victims of Sudan’s long-running Darfur conflict.

The concert, starring top Islamic singer Sami Yusuf, was backed by the British Government, which is spearheading efforts to press the Sudanese Government to stop violence in the western province.

The event at London’s Wembley Arena, called A Concert for Peace in Darfur, also aimed to promote efforts to unite the community amid widespread suspicion of Islam in Britain.

“An injustice anywhere is an attack on justice everywhere and so we will continue working together with all of you to bring this suffering to an end,” said Prime Minister Gordon Brown in a pre-recorded video message.

“I want to thank all of you … from the artists and musicians who are performing here today, to religious leaders from all communities who have been leading prayers and campaigns for the people of Darfur.”

Mr Brown added: “The fact that so many of you are here tonight shows how deeply people from communities all over Britain care about the people of Darfur and their plight.”

All profits from the event will go to Islamic Relief to help fund its work in Darfur.

* It was not clear whether the funds raised were meant for the black Darfurians or for the Janjaweed to rid themselves of the black Darfurians…

Dutch Intifadah Continues

* For the sixth night in a row, Muslims in Amsterdam are torching cars, following the death of a Muslim who burst into a police station and stabbed two officers: Violence flares again in Amsterdam.

Immigrant “youths” riot when police actually defend themselves

Disturbances broke out for a sixth successive night in an immigrant quarter of Amsterdam when four cars were set on fire, police said.

The unrest started after police shot dead a man of Moroccan origin last weekend who had stabbed and injured two officers.

The fires brought the total number of burnt cars to 11, a police spokesman said.

The 22-year-old Moroccan had been undergoing treatment for psychiatric problems and had in the past been questioned over contacts with Islamic militants linked to the murderer of Dutch filmmaker Theo van Gogh.

The Netherlands is home to about one million Muslims out of a population of 16 million. Most live in the big cities.

* Some reports of the torchings say that the majority of the rioters are 12-15 years old. Of course, nobody wants to investigate who’s orchestrating this.

* Get this, the city mayor visited the idiot’s family, but NOT the officers who were attacked.

Terrorism works:

* the local authorities fear riots in the big local Islamic community.

* Thus they go to the ‘youths’, to the mosques and the imams to explain to them what happened.

Local burgomaster [chairman of the city council] Ahmed Marcouch is even sending his condolences to the parent of the terrorist. He is even planning to visit the terrorist family today, although their is no report of a visit to the wounded police officers. Friends of the terrorist can even come to a special room at the city office, were sandwiches, coffee and tea are served to them.

Europe has lost its collective mind…

Hirsi Ali attacks Dutch government

* You better start fighting when you’re up against the wall. Ayaan has nothing to lose but everything to gain. The cowardly multiculti/diversity wimps in the Dutch government who are selling out the birthright of the native Dutch must be brought to shame.

Terrorism works:

images20.jpg

The Dutch government is showing critics that they had better keep quiet by refusing to pay for her security in the US, says former MP Ayaan Hirsi Ali in an interview with Danish paper Jyllands Posten, reports the Volkskrant.

In her first interview since the Netherland said it would no longer pay for round-the-clock protection while she is abroad, Hirsi Ali says the decision was not based on money but on principles.

‘It costs less to let me be protected by a US security company than a Dutch one,’ the former MP is quoted as saying.

‘I think the government wants to sent a message out to others in the Netherlands, that they should keep quiet. They apparently want to reassure Muslims by saying ‘look, we are on your side. Hirsi Ali is a baddie, we are the goodies’,’ Hirsi Ali said.

Justice minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin stopped paying for Hirsi Ali’s security on October 1, shortly after she was awarded a green card for permanent residence in the US. She is now raising the money privately.

* It seems the Dutch are unwilling to stand up for the principles that assure freedom and liberty for citizens of a democratic country.

They will loose what they value most by appeasing forces that are anti-democratic and believe in the suppression of the human spirit and the oppression of individual rights to exercise liberty and freedom as a unique person.

However, the nuclear-arms expert, David Kay, who had many dealings with her, described her as the “worst national security adviser” in the history of the country. And given that among the rivals for that crown are Brzezinski and Scowcroft, that is saying something.

That awful Risotto

* Quotes:

“We in America understand the benevolence that lies at the heart of Islam’

“… disrespect for the Holy Koran is not now, nor has it ever been, nor will it ever be, tolerated by the United States.”

Oh really? There are two problems with this statement and they are exceedingly, and profoundly, at odds with the Constitution for the United States that the Secretary has sworn an oath to defend:

1. The use of the adjective “Holy” by a member of the president’s cabinet in a statement issued in the course of executing their official duty is a direct affront to the phrase, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion” that is enshrined in Amendment I to the Constitution. No government official has the authority to even suggest to the citizens of the United States what is “holy” or not “holy”. Doing so is an assault on personal liberty itself. The individual, and only the individual, is endowed with the right to decide what is, and what is not “holy”. Members of all branches of government need to reflect deeply on this point and to ensure that such language is never used in an official capacity. The citizens do not suggest it, they demand it, as it is their right to demand it.

2. “Disrespect” for the Koran has never been tolerated in the United States? Which United States are we talking about here, Madam Secretary? For it cannot be the United States of America with its 1st constitutional amendment stating, “Congress shall make no law … abridging the freedom of speech …”. I remind Madam Secretary that any citizen of the United States possesses the right to burn the Koran, defecate on the Koran, flush the Koran, roll up and smoke the Koran, or the Bible, or the Bagavad Gita, or the Zendavesta, or the Mahabharata, or the Torah, etc., as an expression of free speech.

Houston, we’ve got a problem. You see, in fact, “disrespect” for the Koran is now tolerated, has always been tolerated, and will always be tolerated in the United States, at least it will be for as long as there are patriots alive who are willing to defend the rights granted to them by the Founding Fathers. I suggest that the members of the president’s cabinet have a refresher course on the Constitution. Perhaps a one-day seminar would do the trick. I’m available and my hourly rates are reasonable. You know how to reach me.

Switzerland: Heidi & Mehmet in the Meadow

An essay by Takuan Seiyo

Last year, there were 639 rapes in Switzerland. 309 of the 489 identified perpetrators, i.e. over 63%, were foreigners.

198 homicides were committed in Switzerland in 2006 (3). Of the 226 identified perpetrators, 51% were foreigners. There were 9272 assaults with bodily damage and 8568 identified assailants. Almost 50% of the assailants were Swiss residents of foreign extraction. (4)

All these and statistics on kidnappings, theft, burglary etc —- all the specialty of foreigners– may be gleaned in the 2006 Statistical Report on Crime, issued by the Swiss Federal Police.

The term “Foreigners” includes the foreign-born as well as the Swiss-born children of such foreigners. Switzerland does not grant birthright citizenship. In this, and in its tough naturalization requirements, Switzerland remains, in some ways, the last remaining outpost of sanity in the Western world.

takuan-2.jpg

SVP has a deep bench of articulate, patriotic, and passionate leaders. The most charismatic of them, Christoph Blocher, is Switzerland’s most famous and controversial politician as well as serving as the country’s current Minister of Justice. He is an outspoken opponent of Switzerland’s multiculti policies and anti-“racism” laws, and is therefore a lightning rod for all the haters on the left.

A foreign resident may acquire Swiss citizenship only upon the approval of a local community that has the rights to interview him as to his “Swissness” and to put his proposed citizenship up for a vote. The prospective applicant must have lived in Switzerland legally and crime-free for 12 years, and have paid his taxes. This prudent procedure has become a demolition target for the bien pensant elite in the Swiss federal government. They wish to replace the centuries-old Swiss confederate rights with federal power wielded along the “enlightened,” multicultural precepts of the European Union.

Micheline Calmy-Rey, president of Switzerland under a rotation system, has called SVP’s campaign “disgusting,” “dangerous” and not corresponding to “Switzerland’s multicultural openness to the world.” Swiss Interior Minister, Pascal Couchepin, has likened Christoph Blocher to Mussolini. These politicians are not coincidentally from Switzerland’s French-speaking region, where the country’s liberal center of gravity lies.

This was a great economic and quality of life advantage. Mass immigration has brought with it criminality and insecurity. The statistics he cites confirm “that which everybody witnesses every day in media reports”: foreigners in Switzerland commit four times as many criminal acts as the Swiss do.

Switzerland for the Swiss

Andrew Bolt:

Switzerland says no to a borderless world:

A SELF-MADE billionaire, who compares himself to a legendary hero impaled while repelling unwanted invaders, led his right-wing party to victory in Swiss elections yesterday after a campaign marred by rows over racism…

(Christopher) Blocher made his name fighting proposals by successive Swiss governments that were put to the country under its referendum system for major national decisions.

He said no to everything, campaigning successfully against UN membership in 1986, abolition of the Swiss Army in 1989, sending Swiss troops on armed peacekeeping missions in 1994 and European Union membership in 2001. But he could not block a second vote on UN membership, which was carried in 2002….

The main talking point of the election – a poster showing three white sheep booting a black sheep off a Swiss flag – was withdrawn (by Blocher’s party) before polling day. The SVP maintains it was illustrating its policy of ejecting foreign criminals but political rivals said it was clearly racist.

Australia: Muslim Serial Rapist gets only 9 years

A MAN has been jailed for at least nine years for raping four women and attacking two others.

0571089900.jpg

Sedat Avci, 21, of Broadmeadows, terrorised women in the northern suburbs between April and August 2005.

Most victims were walking alone in the evening and were subjected to terrifying sex attacks.

Avci had pleaded guilty to seven counts of rape.

County Court Judge Jeanette Morrish said yesterday Avci had waged a “cowardly, aggressive and violent campaign” on vulnerable women but believed his prospects of rehabilitation were good because of his youth and his return to the Muslim faith.

She sentenced Avci to 16 years in jail, with a minimum of nine. The maximum term for rape is 25 years.

Crime Victims Support Association president Noel McNamara slammed the jail term and said he planned to write to the acting Director of Public Prosecutions, Jeremy Rapke.

“That’s 1.5 years each for six women who have got life sentences — it’s a terrible disgrace,” Mr McNamara said. “It’s a great insult to the victims and the community.”

Mr Rapke will review the case.

Avci was just 19 when he violently assaulted women in Coburg, Coolaroo, Brunswick and Hawthorn.

One victim was about to drive off when Avci asked to use her mobile phone. He then forced his way into her car and repeatedly raped her.

In a victim impact statement read in court, the woman said her life had been turned upside down.

“I will have to work every day of my life to make sure this doesn’t define who I am,” she said.

A victim who was raped twice while walking her dogs said the memory of the attack haunted her.

Avci also pleaded guilty to a count of aggravated burglary and another charge of robbery after attacking a pregnant woman in front of her children, aged three and four.

The serial rapist was arrested in August 2005 after police matched his fingerprints to those on a newspaper at the scene of an attack.

A psychiatric report revealed Avci did not have a mental impairment at the time of the attacks, but was using amphetamines.

Avci threatened most of his victims with a knife and in one case told a woman who tried to escape he would shoot her if she tried again.

In a letter of apology to his victims, Avci said he had “no good excuse” for what he had done.

“To say sorry is not enough to heal the heartache and pain I have caused to your lives and your families’ lives,” he said.

* The rape of infidel women is ‘war-booty’ in Islam

* Thanks to Shiva we have the relevant sura’s right here:
Qur’an 33:51

“You may have whomever you desire; there is no blame.”

Qur’an 33:51
“You may put off whom you please, and you may take to you whomever you desire. You may defer any of them you please, and you may have whomever you desire; there is no blame on you if you invite one who you had set aside. It is no sin.”

Italy: Muslim radicalism ‘on the rise’ survey finds

famiglie-musulmane-01-200×150.jpg

Paris, 15 Oct. (AKI) – Half of Italians believe that Islamic extremism is growing in their country, and over 50 percent believe it is a mounting worldwide threat. These are the findings of a survey carried out in Italy last month by the French satellite rolling news channel France24.

France24 surveyed 950 Italians from 20-23 September. A total 53 percent believed that Muslims have many more areas that unite them such as religion than those dividing them, such as nationalism.

Immigration is an area that splits Italians: one-third believe immigrants represent a threat, while 30 percent say they are a resource. Among this latter group, half view immigrants as an economic resource, while the other half consider immigrants to be a positive force for cultural interchange.

Almost three-quarters (74 percent) believe illegal immigration is a threat and 54 percent fear the growth of immigrant ghettos in Italian cities.

Most Italians believe that immigrants do not wish to integrate , while fewer than one-third blame Italian society for a lack of integration.

More than three-fifths (63 percent) think the immigration policies of the current Italian centre-left government led by Romano Prodi are inadequate

Where Would We Be Without Islamic Inventions?

1,001 inventions mark Islam’s role in science

New English Review

This is a jolly little puff piece which is not typical of the Scotsman, however the comments are worthy of note.
The account of Khalid’s discovery (of coffee, or coffee eating goats) is just one of a glittering treasury of untold tales from a golden age of discovery and innovation, which took place in the Islamic world between the seventh and 17th centuries.


It is this hidden history that a new exhibition aims to unveil. Entitled 1,001 Inventions, the exhibition opens at Glasgow Science Centre later this month and charts the innovations of exceptional scholars, and ordinary people, from the Islamic world who discovered and developed many items that are taken for granted today. The exhibits are divided into seven zones: home, hospital, market, school, town, universe and world.

Professor Salim Al-Hassani, chairman of the Foundation for Science Technology and Civilisation, creators of 1,001 Inventions, said there is a widespread misconception that science and technology withered during the “Dark Ages”.
“The 1,001 Inventions exhibition aims, through a process of education and learning, to challenge this myth and celebrate the fact that Muslim civilisation was flourishing and contributed to the advancement of our society today,” he said.

Religion of Inventions

The comments:-

* Didn’t they also invent the process where they convince their uneducated children to blow themselves up so as to kill and main innocent people?


* Any news of any inventions made in the last 300 years?


* We write with Roman letters but use Arabic numerals so the influence extends to something as basic as 1,2,3″ And they pinched the idea from India.


* Most of this stuff attributed to Muslim scientists is just a rehash of stuff they got from the Greeks.


* Eratosthenes who died in 194BC not only knew the earth was spherical but measured its circumference-which puts him 13 centuries ahead of al-Idrisi.


* Al-Battani popularised trigonometry did he? Obviously he then knew the work of Pythagoras , a Greek who died around 500 BC.


* Number theory was greatly advanced by the ‘discovery’ of the number zero. A concept which the Muslims stole from the Hindus when they dropped in to ravage and rob India.

* This is a nice try at a puff piece but you’ll have to do better than this.

So we owe the muslim’s for civilization?

Let’s see: stealing, reprinting and renaming, acquiring without permission and claiming invention, etc. A wonderful culture… current behavior bombs for children and woman, beheading girls for going to school, yes a peaceful, loving culture, interested in human advancement.

* Muslims are particularly zealous in their steady exaggeration of supposedly Muslim inventions and advancements. The Hindu “zero” which was transmitted to the Islamic world, just as paper-making (see Dard Hunter) came to Damascus from China, has long been claimed for the Arabs and Islam. Similarly, the most famous Arabic-using mathematician, the polymath Al-Khwarizmi, is put forth as some kind of representative for Islam, when his own history suggests a lone and unorthodox wolf, in the tradition of al-Rhazi.

My own thought it that once one has thrown out all those who, though they are known by their Arabic names, were in fact Christians or Jews, and once one has determined that the Muslim figures who remain were only one or two or at most three generations away from their non-Muslim ancestors, one begins to suspect that “Islamic” science disappeared because the non-Muslims ceased to be an important part of the population, had been sufficiently reduced in numbers or otherwise marginalized so that the spirit of Islam — a spirit most inimical to free and skeptical inquiry about everything, including what Newton and other scientists in Christendom saw as the laws of Nature that could be determined, for God himself had set the clockwork mechanism in motion, and Man could determine the laws according to which that mechanism functioned, while in Islam, Allah obeys no laws, but is whimsical, does just what he likes, and submissive man must be a slave to Allah, and question nothing, wonder quizzically about nothing, investigate nothing, for Allah knows best. People raised to believe that kind of thing, existing in societies where everyone believes or must pretend to believe that kind of thing, may manage to engage in that bastard-child of science called weapons technology, but that is acceptable because those weapons will help Islam to overcome the Infidels What is inadmissible is for Muslims to study the nature of DNA, or subatomic particles. Some born into Islam may do so — but in so doing, they are showing that they are not true Believers.

* Even if one were to concede Islam’s “past glory days and contributions” to Western civilization, how do they in the same breath explain the failure of so many Islamic states today? How can it be that the West benefit so much from Islam and yet simultaneously Islam not benefit from itself? Blaming colonialism only highlights Islam’s inability and impotence to deal with adversity (something all Muslims would be loathe to admit of their “perfect” religion).

“I fear this is mistaken. They have no intention of leaving us alone.

“They have made their choice and leave us with only one to make – to be forced into retreat or to exhibit even greater determination and belief in standing up for our values than they do in standing up for their’s.”

Mr Blair, who represents the Quartet of the US, Europe, Russia and the United Nations on the Middle East, was speaking at the 62nd annual Alfred E Smith Memorial Foundation dinner at the Waldorf Astoria hotel.

Mr Blair went on: “I said straight after the attack of September 2001 that this was not an attack on America but on all of us. That Britain’s duty was to be shoulder to shoulder with you in confronting it. I meant it then and I mean it now.”

He added: “America and Europe should not be divided, we should stand up together.

“The values we share are as vital and true and, above all, needed today as they have been at any time in the last 100 years.”

Mr Blair received three standing ovations during the evening.

Muslims launch dialogue meetings with UK political leaders

“The purpose of the discussions is to encourage the young Muslims to engage in dialogue with the politicians,” Muslim News editor Ahmed Versi said.

Initial discussions focused on Britain’s controversial anti-terrorism laws, its impact on the Muslim communities, police stop and search powers, radicalization and the increase in holding suspects in detention without any charge.

Religion of Peace hits bombs Philippine Shopping Mall (again)

By OLIVER TEVES
Associated Press Writer

*
MANILA, Philippines — A powerful explosion ripped through three floors of a shopping mall in the heart of Manila’s financial district Friday, killing eight people, injuring scores and sending police and troops on the highest state of alert.

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo said “circumstances indicate it is highly probable that it was caused by an explosive device.” The same mall was targeted by a bombing in 2000.

National Security Adviser Norberto Gonzales said authorities were looking into a possible terrorist attack, but “there is no conclusive evidence yet.”

Mario Em, a taxi driver, said he had just dropped two women off at the mall when the blast hurled the passengers against his vehicle, killing them instantly.

At least eight people were killed and more than 70 were injured, said metropolitan Manila police chief Geary Barias.

Britain’s enormous problem

Britain’s Conservative Muslim Forum has issued a report on UK “security,” and if you hadn’t been following the news from the UK, you might not believe what it says: Muslim Tories: ‘Iran has right to nuclear arms’.

* With thanks to LGF

A body set up by David Cameron to advise the Conservatives on Muslim issues has criticised the Government’s relationship with Israel and concluded that Iran has “legitimate” reasons for wanting nuclear weapons.

face_of_muslims.jpg

The Conservative Muslim Forum also wants the compulsory history curriculum in schools changed to give “full recognition to the massive contribution that Islam has made to the development of Western civilisation”.

* Islam’s contribution to humanity, in sum: Slavery, death, torture, murder, misogyny, intolerance, bigotry, hypocrisy, persecution of homosexuals, of religious minorities, of women; child rape, massive conquest through warfare; deceit, genocide…

* The roll call of Muslim heroes is a roll call of mass murderers: Muhammad, Saladin, Arafat, bin Laden, Zawahiri, Zarqawi, etc.

* If the vote was available to Muslim lands, Osama bin Laden would be elected president in every single Muslim nation on earth.

*

It also argues that preachers who advocate a rejection of democracy and its institutions should not be denied entry into Britain.

The report says: “Regardless of whether one finds Israel a congenial country or not, on any objective assessment of the type of unqualified support given to Israel by the current government it is not conducive to British national interests as this could damage Britain’s relationships with 1.5 billion Muslims worldwide, including those in Britain.”

It concludes that passage with: “In all our dealings with Israel, we must remember the plight of the displaced Palestinians.”

The group calls on the party to be more sympathetic towards Iran. It says: “Given Iran’s position in the Middle East, facing a nuclear-armed Israel, Iran appears to have legitimate reasons for seeking nuclear weapons for defensive purposes.”

The full report is here (PDF), and it’s even worse than the Telegraph’s summary. Clearly, support for extremism reaches the highest levels of the UK Muslim community; this group is chaired by Lord Mohamed Sheikh, given a peerage in 2005 by Michael Howard.

Qaradawi calls on Muslim Brotherhood to Embrace Jihad in Case of U.S. Attack on Iran

By Douglas Farah

Yousef Qaradawi, the spiritual leader of the international Muslim Brotherhood, is reprising his role as mediator between the Sunni and Shi’ite groups. This time he is calling on all Muslims to defend Iran in case of a U.S. attack.

memri1.jpg

Qaradawi’s interview with Islamonline Radio last week highlights the sheikh’s role-and the role of the Muslim Brotherhood-in trying to bring about unity of the Muslim umma, regardless of one’s affiliation.

“It is obligatory on all Muslims to resist any possible attack the US might launch against Iran,” Qaradawi said. “Iran is a Muslim country which all Muslims should defend while the US is an enemy of Islam that has already declared war on Islam under the disguise of war on terrorism and provides Israel with unlimited support.”

In the past, the Ikhwan collaborated closely with the regime of Ayatollah Khommeini, according to the accounts of Yousef Nada and other Brotherhood leaders. There was a falling out, but the Brotherhood has consistently maintained that the Sunni-Shi’ite differences are “minor” issues that should not interfere with the larger strategy of restoring the caliphate.

“Peace” Train Going Off Track

By P. David Hornik
FrontPageMagazine.com


Condoleezza Rice is here again this week, this time shuttling from Jerusalem to Ramallah to Cairo in her obsessive chase after a chimera of formal peace between a tired democracy whose paramount yearning is that its sons should no longer have to be soldiers, and Muslims who regard this Jewish democracy’s existence as an affront to their deepest values and even to God Allah.


The Jerusalem Post, which regularly pronounces itself in favor of a “two-state solution,” noted in an editorial Tuesday that “While Palestinian leaders have repeatedly claimed to recognize Israel’s right to exist, they have never uttered the words ‘Jewish state.’”

In other words, since 1992 Israel, heavily urged on by the United States, has been pursuing a purported peace process with leaders—whether the openly brutal Yasser Arafat or the sedate, nicely dressed Mahmoud Abbas—who cannot bring themselves to utter that phrase.

A decade and a half ago, the pronouncement of “right to exist” without “Jewish state” was enough for Israel to set up, finance, and arm a Palestinian entity on land impinging on its population centers. Since then that entity has murdered over 1500 Israelis, mostly civilians, in terror attacks while injuring and traumatizing many thousands more—including, at this moment, the ongoing battery and traumatization of the Gaza-bordering town of Sderot with its twenty thousand residents.

Some Israelis, though, would still be willing to attribute great significance to the pronouncement of “Jewish state” by an almost-powerless leader without first requiring a transformation of Palestinian society from values of Jew-hatred and Israel-negation to values of peace and pluralism. As the Post puts it:

If, however, Abbas is willing to formally recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state, and to abandon the demand for the demographic influx [of “refugees”] that would negate it, the path to substantive progress would be opened.

But even with all this dangling before him, Abbas still doesn’t take the bait. During Rice’s press conference with him in Ramallah on Monday, Rice “urged Israel and the Palestinians to agree on how and when to start formal peace talks.” Abbas, though, “responded by saying Israel would have to make concessions in order to do so.”

In other words—first concessions, then peace talks.

As for the concessions Abbas demanded—without yet having said “Jewish state”—they reportedly include

the withdrawal of Israel Defense Forces to the lines of September 28, 2000, before the second intifada erupted, the evacuation of settlements, the reopening of Palestinian institutions in East Jerusalem and the release of all Palestinian prisoners. He added that Israel must allow 13 militants it exiled in 2002 to return to the West Bank.

No report anywhere says that Rice finally started to wonder if this man really wants peace or is worth such obsessive supplication by a superpower and leader of the Free World.

Those “13 militants,” for example, were among the most senior of the terrorists who holed themselves up for weeks in the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem in 2002, during which they used the Bible as toilet paper among other desecrations. The 13 incurred the rather light punishment of being deported abroad—but now Abbas wants them back in the Palestinian Authority as a condition for beginning the “peace talks.”

Rice, though, instead of having any known misgivings about this whole endeavor, shuttled off to Cairo where Egyptian foreign minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit gave her more of the same, “warning the summit may be postponed unless a substantive agreement can be reached beforehand.”

Gheit also accused Israel—that disliked entity—of “trying to undermine U.S. efforts to achieve a real peace agreement between the two sides” and said in a statement that “Without addressing these attempts, then we have to seriously think of postponing the conference to another appropriate time.”

As the conference approaches, the Arab atmosphere of bullying and threats is intensifying. Ahmed Qurei—a former PA prime minister and currently head of the Palestinian negotiating team—didn’t mince words just last Thursday when he said, “If the talks fail, we can expect a third and much more severe intifada.”

0c90cd82-3e9c-4d32-a192-fa723972c9c9.gif

Out of respect for the horrendous toll in blood brought on by previous Israeli-Palestinian “peace” events at the White House in September 1993 and at Camp David in summer 2000, Rice should take his words seriously and end the Annapolis preparations before another disaster ensues.

A Prescription for War & Genocide — Stop the Annapolis Conference Now!!!

The history of international conferences and congresses –with or without the “peace” label– is not one to inspire confidence. Think of the conferences of Berlin [circa 1878], Versailles [circa 1918-1920], and Munich [1938]. They only laid the groundwork for future wars and massacres, the Second World War in the case of the Munich Conference. Today US secretary of state, Condoleeza Rice, arrived in Israel to pressure the basically unfit, incompetent, corrupt olmert government of Israel to make more concessions to the Arabs. She does this in the name of setting up a “palestinian state” for a fictitious people known as “palestinians” in the international media and diplomatic circles, claiming that such a state would bring peace with Israel in its wake. Yet, there never was a “palestinian” people in all history. Those now called palestinians are in fact Arabs and call themselves Arabs. The charter of the PLO states in Article I that the “Palestinian Arab people is part of the Arab nation and Palestine is part of the great Arab fatherland.” So they consider themselves Arabs first of all. Only Judeophobes pretend that they are a separate people.

The War Against The Jews

jews.jpg

from Melanie Phillips Diary

The venomous animosity displayed by the UN towards Israel has been amply documented (if generally ignored). Now John Dugard, the UN human rights envoy for the Palestinian Territories, has vented a stream of this poison. BBC Online reports him saying that he will urge the world body to withdraw from the Quartet of Middle East mediators unless it addresses Palestinian human rights, since the US, EU, UN and Russia were failing to protect the Palestinians.

‘Every time I visit, the situation seems to have worsened,’ he said in a BBC interview. This time, I was very struck by the sense of hopelessness among the Palestinian people.’ Mr Dugard attributed this to ‘the crushing effect of human rights violations’, and in particular Israeli restrictions on Palestinians’ freedom of movement.

Yes, the Palestinians’ situation has worsened. This is principally the result of two things. a) The regime of terror instituted by the Hamas administration for which the Palestinians so unwisely voted and which is progressively making their lives a misery; and b) the restrictions imposed by the Israelis to counter the rockets which the Palestinians are lobbing at Israeli towns from Gaza, and the human bomb attacks they are ceaselessly attempting to perpetrate against Israelis. Strangely, Dugard makes no mention of either.

He said that although Israel did have a threat to its security, ‘its response is very disproportionate’.

* This is the kind of f*kcwit reasoning one has to deal with these days.
