Al-Beeb: Kassam fire “Payback”

bbc_sharia.gif

Mike at the Monkey Tennis Centre exposes yet another instance of BBC biased reporting, this time regarding the Kassam rockets being fired at Sderot:

He may not be in the same league as Barbara ‘tears for Arafat’ Plett and Orla Guerin when it comes to anti-Israeli bias, but the BBC’s Martin Asser is clearly toeing the company line. His follow-up report on Monday’s rocket attack on an Israeli nursery school by Islamic Jihad is a classic hit-job on Israel, in which Asser rolls out the familiar prejudices, and wallows in moral equivalence.

* Al Beep’s Martin Asser is a ‘revert’ to Islam, for him to produce anti-Israel venom is obligatory…

But, it turns out, the terrorists had a perfectly good excuse:

To the Islamic Jihad militants who fired them, the rockets were pay-back against Israel for the deaths of a number children in Israeli air strikes in Gaza in the past week.

To the best of my knowledge, Islamic Jihad hasn’t issued a press release claiming that the attack was in retaliation for any particular incident, in which case Asser is quite simply making excuses for attempted murder on their behalf. Islamic Jihad, and groups like them, don’t need any encouragement to try and kill Israelis. And, even if this was ‘retaliation’, Asser makes no distinction between the deliberate or indiscriminate targeting of children by terrorists, and the accidental killing of children by Israeli troops.

It’s been said many times but it bears repeating: when Israeli forces kill Palestinian civilians it’s because they made a mistake; when Palestinians terrorists kill Israeli civilians it’s because they’re trying to.

For the record, the three children who were killed most recently were playing near a rocket launcher which had been placed close to their homes by terrorists. The sad reality is that the extremists value the deaths of their own children even more than the deaths of Israelis, because they know that the BBC and other sympathetic media will give disproportionate coverage to such incidents, and will report them with little or no context.

* Actually, the children were not ‘playing near the rocket launchers’- they were used by the terrorists to remove the rocket launchers after the rockets were fired.

Your Life as a Muslim 

Islam is no different from Christianity or other religions, right? 

Bin Laden Video: “Chomsky is my favorite bitch”- and “America will be taxfree under Islam”

“I invite you to embrace Islam”

Bin Laden also suggests the Jews could have avoided the Holocaust if they had put themselves under the protection of Muslims and indicates that the mujahadeen are now determining U.S. policy.

An offer you can’t refuse; America’s Dhimmicritters are ‘reverting’ in droves:

ABC News’ Jonathan Karl Reports: ABC News has obtained a transcript of the latest taped message from Osama bin Laden.

Sources tell ABC News the tape is approximately 30 minutes long, and does not contain overt threats to the United States.

According to the transcript bin Laden opens with “praise to Allah” and his “law of retaliation” — “an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth and the killer is killed.”

He also speaks to recent issues grabbing headlines in the United States, referring to “the reeling of many of you under the burden of interest-related debts, insane taxes and real estate mortgages; global warming and its woes…”

“To conclude,” bin Laden says, “I invite you to embrace Islam.” He goes on to say: “There are no taxes in Islam, but rather there is a limited Zakaat [alms] totaling 2.5 percent.”

What? No Taxes? Where do I sign up?

Only his hairdresser knows for sure

Characteristically, no one is picking up on the significance of the dye job. The Shafi’i school of Islamic jurisprudence forbids men and women to dye their hair black “except when the intention is jihad…as a show of strength to unbelievers” (‘Umdat al-Salik e.4.4). Sheikh Yusuf al-Qaradawi, in his The Lawful and the Prohibited in Islam, says essentially the same thing: “Some of the early Muslims, including some sahabah [companions of Muhammad] such as Sa’d ibn Abi Waqqas, ‘Uqbah ibn ‘Amr, al-Hassan, al-Hussein, Jarir, and others permitted the use of black dye. Some scholars, on the other hand, do not consider the use of black dye as permissible except during time of war, when the enemy might be impressed by the fact that all the soldiers of the Muslim army look young.”

Spencer: I am not impressed. I think it makes him look like an aging lounge lizard. But the belligerent overtones should not be overlooked.

Osama’s invitation to Islam

“I invite you to embrace Islam,” says Osama, and yes, that is a prerequisite for an observant Muslim before he can commit an act of violence against an unbeliever.

Muhammad directs Muslims to issue this invitation first, and if they refuse, to invite non-Muslims to enter the Islamic social order as second-class dhimmis, and if they refuse both, to go to war with them:

Fight in the name of Allah and in the way of Allah. Fight against those who disbelieve in Allah. Make a holy war, do not embezzle the spoils; do not break your pledge; and do not mutilate (the dead) bodies; do not kill the children. When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them….If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah’s help and fight them. (Sahih Muslim 4294)
No one is noting that Osama, like Adam Gadahn last year, accompanies this invitation with unfavorable comparisons of Christianity and Judeo-Christian Western culture to Islam, and an appeal based on the Qur’an’s presentation of Jesus as a Muslim prophet…

UK: Hoping Against Hope: Is The Left Coming On Board?

First signs of resistance spotted:

Some Far Left publications are beginning to backtrack on their uncritical support of the Muhammedan proletariat, since they realize that the ummah intends replacing ‘man made law’ in the Dar-ul harb with the sharia which may not suit the liberal lefties, after all. Harry’s place, a once dogmatically far left blog in the UK, has recently run quite a few articles critical of the pandering, aiding and abetting of Muslim causes and the useful idiots who prostrate themselves before the power of the bearded fanatics.

“Cowardly efforts to avoid conflict will not avert conflict”

David Thompson in conversation with the Muslim novelist and exile Tahir Aslam Gora

Even some Westerners suggest that the stance of the West regarding Salman Rushdie is a defining line between Islam and the West. But they don’t advise what the West was supposed to do in response to a death fatwa by Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini. Would they hand Rushdie over to Iran for the sake of harmony with Islam? More to the point, was there any such harmony before the Rushdie issue? From my perspective, the answer is no. The West was viewed as an infidel and sinful world long before this controversy.

Snubbing Rushdie or condemning any caricaturist is not the remedy for this conflict. These intellectuals are forgetting the fact that supporting free expression was as difficult in the West about a century ago as it seems in the Muslim world today.

Tahir Aslam Gora cops quite a bit of flack by those who call his bluff:

But they don’t advise what the West was supposed to do in response to a death fatwa by Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini”
We should have done this :-
1) Stop Muslim immigration
2) Invest lots of money on renewable energy (not biofuels) and fusion.

If we had done that then hopefully the money and the fifth columnists for Muslim terrorism would be a lot less.

These intellectuals are forgetting the fact that supporting free expression was as difficult in the West about a century ago as it seems in the Muslim world today.

I don’t think so, not even close. Could the free thinking expressed by Charles Darwin, David Hume, Robert Ingersol, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, John Adams, Tom Paine – and countless others articulate their views in most of today’s Muslim world? I rather think not.

The Times: Hardline takeover of British mosques

Almost half of Britain’s mosques are under the control of a hardline Islamic sect whose leading preacher loathes Western values and has called on Muslims to “shed blood” for Allah, an investigation by The Times has found.

cover-385_205781a.jpg
Riyadh ul Haq, who supports armed jihad and preaches contempt for Jews, Christians and Hindus, is in line to become the spiritual leader of the Deobandi sect in Britain. The ultra-conservative movement, which gave birth to the Taleban in Afghanistan, now runs more than 600 of Britain’s 1,350 mosques, according to a police report seen by The Times.

The Times investigation casts serious doubts on government statements that foreign preachers are to blame for spreading the creed of radical Islam in Britain’s mosques and its policy of enouraging the recruitment of more “home-grown” preachers.

Mr ul Haq, 36, was educated and trained at an Islamic seminary in Britain and is part of a new generation of British imams who share a similar radical agenda. He heaps scorn on any Muslims who say they are “proud to be British” and argues that friendship with a Jew or a Christian makes “a mockery of Allah’s religion”.

It is not suggested that all British Muslims who worship at Deobandi mosques subscribe to the isolationist message preached by Mr ul Haq, and he himself suggests Muslims should only “shed blood” overseas.

But while some Deobandi preachers have a more cohesive approach to interfaith relations, Islamic theologians say that such bridge-building efforts do not represent mainstream Deobandi thinking in Britain.

The Times has gained access to numerous talks and sermons delivered in recent years by Mr ul Haq and other graduates of Britain’s most influential Deobandi seminary near Bury, Greater Manchester.

Intended for a Muslim-only audience, they reveal a deep-rooted hatred of Western society, admiration for the Taleban and a passionate zeal for martyrdom “in the way of Allah”.

The seminary outlaws art, television, music and chess, demands “entire concealment” for women and views football as “a cancer that has infected our youth”.

Mahmood Chandia, a Bury graduate who is now a university lecturer, claims in one sermon that music is a way in which Jews spread “the Satanic web” to corrupt young Muslims.

One sermon warns believers to protect their faith by distancing themselves from the “evil influence” of their non-Muslim British neighbours.

“We are in a very dangerous position here. We live amongst the kuffar, we work with them, we associate with them, we mix with them and we begin to pick up their habits.”

A commentator on religious radicalism in Pakistan, where Deobandis wield significant political influence, told The Times that “blind ignorance” on the part of the Government in Britain had allowed the Deobandis to become the dominant voice of Islam in Britain’s mosques.

Khaled Ahmed said: “The UK has been ruined by the puritanism of the Deobandis. You’ve allowed the takeover of the mosques. You can’t run multiculturalism like that, because that’s a way of destroying yourself. In Britain, the Deobandi message has become even more extreme than it is in Pakistan. It’s mind-boggling.”

Farrukh from Woking, in the comments to the article, says:

For a long time Muslims such as myself have contacted our government advising them to establish an educational program on Islam to enable the majority of everyday Muslims who do not subscribe to these ‘stricter’ and often mis representative interpretations of Islam. No response. If the government will not help everyday Muslims who do not actually hold these ‘confused’ values, how do they expect us to counter this negative influence which neither represents the teaching of Islam, nor the example of Prophet Muhammad? So again, I welcome dialogue with our government to help, empower the everyday Muslim with the knowledge that is required to counter the points of view put forward by such people.
As for deobanids vs barelwivs, one is just as bad as the other; labeling one strict and the other moderate simply reflects a failure to understanding the real issues facing the Muslim community today.

UPDATE

This is what this disgusting man is preaching:

On Jews “They’re all the same. The Jews don’t have to be in Israel to be like this. It doesn’t matter whether they’re in New York, Houston, St Louis, London, Birmingham, Bradford, Manchester. They’re all the same. They’ve monopolised everything: the Holocaust, God, money, interest, usury, the world economy, the media, political institutions . . . they monopolised tyranny and oppression as well. And injustice”
On New York “Jew York . . . sorry, New York . . . a slip of the tongue.”

On the Taleban “The only group of people upon the earth who are establishing the Sharia and the law of Allah” [In 2000]

What crime has the Government of Afghanistan committed? All they have done is they have refused to hand over a person (Osama bin Laden) whose guilt is yet to be proven. Because of that crime, the entire nation is being punished. And as a result, because they strive to represent Islam, the whole of Islam is being demonised. And as a result, Muslims all over the globe are being discriminated against” [In late 2001]

On Europe “Europe has made it clear: they will not tolerate a Muslim force or power in Europe. And if it means massacring Muslims, if it means genocide, if it means a holocaust in Europe again, so be it. For this time, the target is Muslims”

On Muslims in Britain “It’s become insane that as Muslims in this country we are more concerned about the frequency of our bins being emptied than we are about Muslim women being raped, children being massacred, old men being put to death and buried alive, and entire populations being subjugated and being made victims of genocide in other parts of the world”

On Britain’s antiterror laws “Muslims are being maligned, our religious ideals and values . . . are under threat and it is naive to suggest otherwise. Read between the lines, peer beyond the spin. Laws are being introduced which . . . are targeted at Muslims. We are being discriminated against. Muslims in this country are being picked up one by one, control orders, imprisonment without trial, imprisonment on the flimsiest of excuses”

On integration “Allah has warned us in the Koran, do not befriend the kuffar [unbelievers], do not align yourselves with the kuffar”

On the threat faced by British Muslims “Winston Churchill made a very insightful comment. He said: ‘Appeasement is the policy of feeding the crocodile in the hope that it will eat you last’. As Muslims today, we think it’s OK, things can happen to Muslims elsewhere, but what will happen when there is no one else to devour? We will be the next meal”

On jihad “The moment we say something, we are branded fanatics, terrorists, extremists. And no one dare utter the J-word. The J-word has become taboo. The J-word can never be mentioned and if someone mentions it even Muslims look at one another. So much is happening and yet we are expected to remain silent”

On Islam’s ultimate triumph “Allah has promised. It is he who has sent his Messenger [Muhammad] with the religion of truth so that it may prevail over all other religions, even though the disbelievers may dislike it, even though the mushrikin [the idolaters] may dislike it. Allah has promised that victory will be for the believers. But we will be tested in the meantime”

On Israel “Oh Allah, do not let us die until our eyes are cooled with the sight of banu Israel [the children of Israel] being punished for their crimes”

On sacrifice “Trust in Allah, trust in the Prophet’s promises and his words. But not just rely on him and sit back, carrying on with our nine-to-five lives and our rat race. No, but be willing to sacrifice anything that may be required of us in the way of Allah”

On culture “Today, the culture of Coke and the Big Mac, the culture of the Americans, the culture of the Europeans, these cultures are dominant and they are all pervasive. We stand in awe of their culture and we are imitating them in everything. This culture, this evil influence, this imitation of the kuffar . . .”

He also doesn’t like opera or Christmas.

“Home Grown Terror”

Much is made, far too much, actually, of whether Muslim terrorists are citizens of the country they attempt to terrorize. Why is their citizenship is a total irrelevancy? For two reasons.

First and most important, what motivates these acts of terrorism is the religious faith of the terrorists. The god of Islam, Allah, is, truly, a god of vengeance and death. It is not very difficult for those who would be terrorists to find justification in their holy book, and terrorists have not “hijacked” Islam, they follow the true path of their ‘religion’- which is in fact a totalitarian ideology with a global mission.
The second reason why it is irrelevant is that these terrorist, citizens or not, have not adapted to the essentials of a free society: freedom of conscience; tolerance of those who are different. What this must mean to those who are citizens is to live in peace among their neighbors, however different those neighbors may be.

In short, if someone is technically a citizen but does not live in peace for the precise reason that the larger society is not Muslim, then one forfeits their citizenship. And should have zero claim to being “homegrown.”

This being said, it is useful to know that there is a threat within Britain, and that, largely, it is in the form of former colonials exacting their revenge.

*Revenge? Really?

* If so, for what exactly? Why are we led to believe that colonialism was such a bad thing?

It’s apparent that Britain is a nest of muddle-headed political correctness, manifested by idiocies like checking in with the the local Muslim councils before carrying out searches.

Muslims, qua Muslims, are the threat. Unless and until the Muslim community actually polices itself, both in the U.K. and elsewhere, we must keep a sharp eye on their centers of sedition, especially mosques and Islamic centers.

UK: Muslim Lawyers Working Towards Sharia

* Nothing beats the information we kufars can obtain from the Islamic websites. A treasure trove to learn about the true intentions of the ummah, although most of the soldiers of Allah would lie and deny everything about it when confronted with the evidence. That behavior is known as taqiyya, to lie and to deceive the kuffar to further the cause of Islam.

Since its creation the group has campaigned for UK laws to be changed to become compatible with the Sharia – arguing that failure to do so will breach the human rights of Muslims.

In addition, the group’s members have said that they also wish for Sharia to become the dominant law-code in the UK, laying out a rough three-step strategy to impose Islamic law in the UK:

Step 1 – To make UK’s laws compatible with the Sharia (on issues such as polygamy and inheritance laws for instance).

Step 2 – To set up a network of parallel sharia courts (ruling initially on personal and family law for Muslims) whose authority is recognised by the government.

Step 3 – To help sharia courts to gradually supplant existing secular courts as the Muslim population increases to the point that they become a majority.

The group’s plan to gradually Islamicise the UK is approximately consistent with the policies of other groups which its members have associated with. These include the Jamaat-e-Islami, the Islamic Foundation, the Islamic Society of Britain and the Murabitun.

The organisation has also supported the campaign for criticism of Islam to be outlawed as well as campaigning on behalf of Muslims detained for plotting attacks or supporting Muslim militants in Afghanistan or Chechnya.

Ahmad Thomson, the group’s most high-profile member and its deputy-chairman, has said that he believes the world is run by Jews and Freemasons. He has also said that the Iraq war was caused by Jews.

Thomson, a white convert born in Rhodesia, is also a member of al-Murabitun, a small Sufi group that has been accused of having neo-Nazi sympathies.

Thomson has advised the government and ministers on Islamic issues. He also sat on the government taskforce ‘Preventing Extremism Together’ which was set up after the 7 July bombings in 2005.

* Hypocrisy seems to have a different meaning in Islamistan:

– Calls for recognition of polygamy

The Association of Muslim Lawyers has said that the UK should recognise polygamous marriages and that a failure to do so will breach the human rights of Muslims by not allowing them to fully practice their religion.

The group has suggested that the problem can be solved if the government creates a two-tier legal system under which Muslims cannot be charged with polygamy but members of other religions can be.

* Why don’t we start listening to them?

German authorities worrying about converts to Islam misunderstanding their new religion

Spotlight on the ‘reverts!’

Bitter sarcasm from Robert Spencer:

Behold the glorious complexity of Islam! Here is a belief-system so intricate, so nuanced, so difficult to grasp, that even those who dedicate themselves to embracing it and living by its precepts tend to misunderstand it utterly, missing its message of peace and actually coming to believe it teaches them to commit violence against unbelievers in order to bring about their subjugation! Imagine! Ibrahim Hooper of CAIR should get on the phone to German Muslim leaders right away, offering to share the techniques his group has used to such great effect to prevent converts to Islam in the U.S. from joining jihad groups.

What’s that? CAIR doesn’t have any such program? What are you, some kind of Islamophobe?

“German authorities watch increasing conversions to Islam with concern,” from Deutsche Presse Agentur

Berlin (dpa) – The German authorities are watching the rising tide of conversion to Islam with some concern, the daily Berliner Zeitung reported Thursday.

spdstimme.jpg

A vote for socialism is a vote for Mohammedanism…

The newspaper cited figures compiled by a Muslim group that showed that 4,000 Germans had converted last year, compared with just 1,000 in 2005.

It was common knowledge that the German authorities were monitoring converts to Islam closely, it said.

Quoting Interior Ministry officials, the newspaper said there had been a rise internationally in the number of converts involved in Islamist terrorist acts.

Among them are “shoe bomber” Richard Reid, a Briton who tried to blow up an American Airlines flight in December 2001, and Muriel Degauque, a Belgian suicide bomber who blew herself up in Iraq in November 2005.

hezbollah_hamas_nazi_salute.jpg

* Could it be that the Nazi and the Islamic Ideology have something in common?

Guido Steinberg, who researches Islamic issues, said extremists were targeting new converts, and terrorist expert Rolf Tophoven said converts tended to be fanatical….

Abdullah attributed the increase in conversions to rising Islamophobia. Whenever Islam falls under suspicion, many people start to feel solidarity with the religion,” he told the Berliner Zeitung.

Hahahahaha! The logic of the Musulman..!

* Yes, that’s it. People begin to criticize Muslims for allowing terrorists in their midst, and that makes non-Muslims convert to Islam and…become terrorists.

Cartoon Jihad Rolls On:

‘Sweden needs to change its laws’-Muslim ambassadors are seething!

* And that’s what this latest episode of Cartoon Rage, as well as the original Cartoon Rage incidents, were all about: forcing dhimmi Europeans to place Islam beyond questioning or criticism — while the jihad continues apace.

From The Local


Ambassadors from Muslim countries have indicated that they intend to present the Swedish prime minister with a list of demands when they meet for talks on Friday.
Fredrik Reinfeldt invited the ambassadors from 20 Muslim countries to government offices on Friday following a wave of protests from Muslim countries after the publication of a caricature of Muhammad in local newspaper Nerikes Allehanda.

Reinfeldt’s press secretary Oscar HÃ¥llén was unable to say which countries had confirmed their attendance.

Egyptian ambassador Mohamed Sotouhi told news agency TT that he and a group of fellow ambassadors had agreed on a list of measures Sweden needed to take if it was to secure a long-term solution to the Muhammad cartoon controversy.

According to Sotouhi, “comprehensive measures” were required if Sweden was to prevent some “amateur artist” from reawakening tensions every other month.

“We want to see action, not just nice words. We have to push for a change in the law,” he said.

* Yeah. Like public executions for those who mock the profit of Islam, right bro?

“Muslims need legal protection against the desecration of the Prophet Muhammad, maybe something similar to the protection enjoyed by Jews and homosexuals.”

*Disingenuous. Neither Jews nor homosexuals enjoy the protections he is demanding.

While praising the “very constructive steps” taken by Fredrik Reinfeldt, the Egyptian ambassador said that Sweden had much work left to do.
“In the long term the school curriculum has to convince pupils that if they want to express their opinion they should do so in such a way that it doesn’t cause offence or hurt. This should also be part of journalism training,” said Sotouhi.

“A permanent parliamentary committee also needs to be established to tackle islamophobia,” he added.

* Right. Establish the sharia arm of the inquisition…

The ambassador urged Reinfeldt to strive towards “reaching a balance between freedom of speech and taking responsibility to avoid offending Muslims or other religious groups in this society”.

* Can’t affort ‘offending Muslims’- right? We all know what they do when offended…

“Everybody will compare his wisdom with the situation in Denmark, whose prime minister treated the problem with a sort of arrogance, or at least delayed taking action to prevent the problem from escalating,” he said.

* Blackmail and intimidation?

Sotouhi described Sweden as a sophisticated country containing talented and creative diplomats.

“They know that proactive measures are necessary and we are ready to cooperate with them,” he said.

Algeria’s ambassador to Sweden, Merzak Bedjaoui, said the meeting “was an excellent initiative taken in a spirit of appeasement.”

“At our level, we are trying to work hand in hand with Swedish authorities to try to create a real bridge between our communities,” he said.

* Shouldn’t Sweden consider building drawbridges against the Muhammedan invasion instead?

“When we speak of a dialogue between civilisations, it can’t just be a catchy slogan. I think that the publication of this kind of caricature doesn’t help at all,” he said.

* If it doesn’t further the Islamification of Eurabia its ‘not helpful-‘ got it matey!

Earlier in the day the Oscar HÃ¥llén said that the meeting would form “part of our dialogue with these countries.”

“We want to emphasize the fact that Muslims and Christians live side by side in Sweden in a spirit of mutual respect,” he said.

Hållén further added that the government intended to reiterate its earler defence of Swedish laws surrounding freedom of expression.

* Good. One would hope so…

Since When is Haneef a “Cleared Terrorism Suspect?”

AFP reports:

BRISBANE, Australia (AFP) – A lawyer for cleared terrorism suspect Mohamed Haneef said Thursday the Indian doctor’s chances of resuming work in Australia after a court ordered his visa restored have been hurt by legal wrangling.

* Magic, just magic! Mysteriously ‘cleared’– how? Why? By whom? Was there not enough time to compile the evidence to convict him? Check this out: Legal wrangling over the letter of the law saved his ass from the slammer, but that ‘cleared’ him? Incredible. The MSM is aiding and abetting the global jihad.

AFP/File Photo: ‘Cleared’ terrorism suspect Mohamed Haneef

A lawyer for cleared terrorism suspect Mohamed Haneef said Thursday the Indian doctor’s chances of resuming work in Australia after a court ordered his visa restored have been hurt by legal wrangling.

Haneef wanted to return to his job on the luxurious Gold Coast but delays were putting that position in doubt and he might not have a job to go back to in the end, said lawyer Peter Russo.

Last month a court overturned a decision by Immigration Minister Kevin Andrews to revoke the visa even though terrorism-related charges against him had been dropped.

On Wednesday, Andrews launched an appeal against that decision in the Queensland state capital Brisbane, arguing that the judge had misinterpreted the relevant legislation.


* Nutroots and moonbats in the judiciary…


Andrews has vowed to take the case to the High Court, Australia’s most senior court, if necessary.
Haneef was charged with providing support to a terror organisation after failed car bomb attacks in London and Glasgow but the charges were dropped for lack of evidence and he returned to India voluntarily.

Russo said on Thursday that as time dragged on it was becoming harder and harder for the hospital where he worked to keep his position open and his return might ultimately be difficult anyway.

“That may be actually becoming problematic in the sense that: Is there a position for him still available?” Russo told national radio.

* Russo –nomen est omen- another far left shyster who pushes the limits…

“He can’t, obviously, sit around waiting for too much longer because he’s got a wife and child to support.”

Haneef is currently in the Indian city of Bangalore with family after leaving Australia at the end of July.

Russo said the fight to regain the visa would continue regardless of whether Haneef ultimately returned to work in Australia, in order to clear his name.

“The problem my client faces is that if we don’t do this, he’s always going to be a person who had a visa cancelled and that needs to be sorted out,” Russo said.

The charge related to his giving his mobile phone SIM card to his cousin Sabeel Ahmed last year. Ahmed was arrested and charged over failed car bomb attacks in Britain earlier this year.

Ahmed’s brother, Kafeel, drove a car into Glasgow airport in June in an apparent suicide attack. He later died of his injuries.

* Bleeding hearts anybody?

Next thing you know when Haneef gets involved in another terrorist plot he’ll claim ‘we made him do it..’

Update Brussels Demo: Germans Back Out, Danes and British Stay Put

From the desk of Paul Belien/Brussels Journal

This afternoon Udo Ulfkotte, the German co-organizer of the anti-Islamization demonstration in Brussels on 11 September, called off the demonstration, which earlier was banned by the Brussels authorities. During the past weeks Ulfkotte claimed that he would bring 20,000 demonstrators to the Belgian and European capital. On his website he announced today that the demo will not take place for security reasons since “extremists prepared to use violence can abuse the demonstration for violent actions.”

bruessel_flugblatt-small.jpg

The Danish and British co-organizers have immediately expelled Ulfkotte from SIOE (Stop the Islamization of Europe) and say his decision to cancel the demo is “unilateral.” They announce that the demo will go ahead as planned. Anders Gravers, the Danish co-president of SIOE, who was in Brussels today, was told by the Brussels authorities that there may be “terrorist attacks against the demo.” According to the Danish and British SIOE branches the news that there will be a terrorist attack in Brussels is “the final desperate tactic from the authorities” to prevent the demonstration from taking place.

So far Belgium has never been the scene of Muslim terrorism, although Islamists frequently use the country as a logistical support base for actions elsewhere. The Madrid train bombings of 11 March 2004 were planned in Belgium. It has even been suggested that the Belgian authorities have struck a deal with Islamist terrorists, agreeing to turn a blind eye to conspiracies hatched on Belgian soil in exchange for immunity from attack. In a statement from GIA, the Algerian section of al-Qaeda, addressing the Belgian King Albert II but posted to the French embassy in Brussels in June 1999, the Algerian terror movement explicitly referred to such a deal.

This makes it very unlikely that there will be a terrorist attack in Brussels next Tuesday. Unless the Islamists regard an anti-Islamization demonstration in Brussels, even though banned by the Brussels authorities, as a unilateral breach of the deal by the Belgians.

* Which is most likely the case.

Court Case Drags On. Police Seems Willing to Tolerate Anti-Islamization Demo

The strategy of the Belgian authorities might simply be to drag the case out in order to make it difficult for the organizers to make arrangements for their demonstration. As things now stand the demonstration is still illegal.

The Brussels police are nervous because, despite the Arab European League’s official statement that its Muslim gangs will not counterdemonstrate, Muslim groups are rallying their members to do just that.

An unidentified man, in handcuffs, believed to be a terror suspect, is led away at the German Federal Court in Karlsruhe.

Authorities believed “some 10” further suspects provided support to the two German converts and a Turkish citizen who were arrested Tuesday, August Hanning, a top security official, told the ARD broadcaster.

“This is the network that we are aware of at the moment,” Hanning said, adding that authorities believe the splintered cell — which includes more converted Germans, Turks and other citizens — no longer poses a direct security threat.

The three arrested suspects had military-style detonators and enough material to make bombs more powerful than those that killed 191 people in Madrid in 2004 and 52 commuters in London two years ago, prosecutors said Wednesday.

“We were able to succeed in recognizing and preventing the most serious and massive bombings,” German Federal Prosecutor Monika Harms said at a news conference Wednesday. She declined to name specific targets.

In Washington, a senior U.S. State Department official said German investigators had determined the Frankfurt International Airport and the nearby U.S. Ramstein Air Base were the primary targets of the plot, but that those arrested may have also been considering strikes on other sites, particularly facilities associated with the U.S.

The Peace Racket

Bruce Bawer

An anti-Western movement touts dictators, advocates appeasement—and gains momentum.

West meets East

*

If you want peace, prepare for war.” Thus counseled Roman general Flavius Vegetius Renatus over 1,600 years ago. Nine centuries before that, Sun Tzu offered essentially the same advice, and it’s to him that Vegetius’s line is attributed at the beginning of a film that I saw recently at Oslo’s Nobel Peace Center. Yet the film cites this ancient wisdom only to reject it. After serving up a perverse potted history of the cold war, the thrust of which is that the peace movement brought down the Berlin Wall, the movie ends with words that turn Vegetius’s insight on its head: “If you want peace, prepare for peace.”

This purports to be wise counsel, a motto for the millennium. In reality, it’s wishful thinking that doesn’t follow logically from the history of the cold war, or of any war. For the cold war’s real lesson is the same one that Sun Tzu and Vegetius taught: conflict happens; power matters. It’s better to be strong than to be weak; you’re safer if others know that you’re ready to stand up for yourself than if you’re proudly outspoken about your defenselessness or your unwillingness to fight. There’s nothing mysterious about this truth. Yet it’s denied not only by the Peace Center film but also by the fast-growing, troubling movement that the center symbolizes and promotes.

Call it the Peace Racket.

South Korean missionaries have finally returned home after their ordeal in Afghanistan was over.

Al Jizz has two video’s worth watching: Fibbi Hooper, in his element, tries to sound intelligent and civilized while his Egyptian head banger and fellow-believer Zaglal ul Najjar spews the typical Muhammedan hatred that only a genocidal fanatic of the RoP can harbor. He displays a childish, but totally fanatical irrationality, worth studying if you’re not familiar with Muhammedan behavior.

The Lebanese priest seems amused; he shouldn’t be.

Pro-jihad books “inundating” London libraries

* Yes, and just try to find even one anti-jihad book. Oh, and who is paying for all these books?

“Radical books in London libraries,” by Richard Watson for the BBC (thanks to DW):

Books by radical cleric Abu Hamza were found in London libraries

‘Hatred of women’

The Tower Hamlets collections also include multiple works by the founders of modern political Islam, Sayed Qutb and Sayed Abdullah Maududi, and a large number of texts from Saudi scholars, promoting the Wahhabi fundamentalist school of thought.

These, the report says, refer to “incredible hatred of women, incredible hatred of non-Muslims… and of Muslims who are not part of the Wahhabi tradition”.

Tower Hamlets Council operates a number of libraries in East London

The report’s authors counted 61 separate copies of Maududi’s books including the classic Al Jihad, in which he states: “The objective of Islamic jihad is to eliminate the rule of an un-Islamic system and establish in its stead an Islamic system of state rule… the aim of Islam is to bring about a universal revolution.”

There were also 11 copies of Sayed Qutb’s Milestones, which is highly sought after by jihadists.
