Fitzgerald: A tribute to Jorg Haider

Third Rail or Fifth Leg?

* Is it legitimate and necessary, no matter how much we may resent it, to team up with perceived Neo-Nazi’s, anti-immigrant and white power fanatics in order to stop the spread of Islam, further Muhammedan infiltration and the building of mosques and madrassah’s?

* Strange bedfellows or dangerous alliance? History has many examples of strange alliances born of necessity. Why don’t we take all the help we can get and sort our differences out later?

As long as the concept of being a “fascist” is somehow morally worse than the concept of islamic fundamentalism, then the west still has not fully appreciated the gravity of the situation. As long as the concept of “nazi” still draws a more visceral reaction than the concept of “jihadist”, then we still have a long way to go. As long as the concept of “racist” still holds a greater stigma than the concept of female genital mutilation, then the fight has not yet even begun.

What this kerfluffel proves is that many, many of those skeptical of the islamic presence worry less, in fact, about the destruction of our way of life and actually more about their own personal ethics and political philosophies. That is too bad, because it shows that they still do not take the threat of islam seriously enough. For them, this is still just a hypothetical threat – this idea of returning to the 7th century so their anti-jihad position is more of an intellectual exercise, being that the terms fascist, racist, and nazi carry much more weight, and generate much more of visceral reaction in them, than anything we actually are facing – such as the total destruction, not only of our liberties, but of our western way of life – our music, our art, our sexuality, even our history. They don’t actually believe such a thing could really happen in our modern western world, it’s too far fetched, too much of a right-wing fantasy, so they are not willing to break eggs to make omelets.

Complicating this apathy, is the moral equivalence of the affluent but decadent West. Many feel we can fight this islamic threat from ivory towers while still paying homage to the politically correct ideal that the concepts of “racist”, “fascist” and “nazi” are concepts morally equal to, or in fact, worse, than anything represented in 7th century arabia. This moral equivalence is a uniquely western prejudice, a dementia if you will, born of guilt, and fear, of our own past. Ultimately, many of us intellectual anti-jihadists, and that is what we are, really fear and loathe ourselves more than we fear or loathe the islamic threat. The Left should rejoice in this. For that idiom is, and always has been, the message of the Left that, ultimately, it is the white Christian world that needs to be feared most of all.



* The inimitable Hugh Fitzgerald takes the moral high ground. But how do we build a resistance against the Islamization of our countries without getting into bed with unsavory characters? This debate has been raging for weeks now, started by Charles Johnson from LGF who turned his blog into a hysterical holier- than-thou moral-supremacy wankfest, where Nazi’s and white power supremacists lurk behind every bush to ruin the pure and innocent counter-jihad of the valiant warriors out in cyberspace. Conventional wisdom has it however, that you can’t make an omelet without breaking eggs, and the lizard idea that you can -somehow- fight the global jihad without anybody getting hurt is, – to put it mildly, moonbattish. Haider, Le Pen, Flaams Belang: third rail or fifth leg?


THE Austrian right-wing firebrand Joerg Haider said yesterday he plans to change building laws to prevent mosques and minarets being erected in his home province of Carinthia. from this article

Jorg Haider is akin to, but worse than Le Pen. He is one of those Austrians who drove the late Thomas Bernhard to maddened distraction, the kind who claim that Austrians were the “first victims” of Hitler (forgetting those cheering crowds, that delight at Anschluss). He exhibits every sign of antisemitism except, perhaps, that exhibited by the BBC World Service and The Guardian and Robert Fisk — that is, not quite so systematically vicious when it comes to the state of Israel.

Haider, by the way, owes his considerable wealth to a fluke. In 1938, someone fleeing Austria had to give up his castle in Carinthia (it’s the title of an old book: “A Castle in Carinthia”), selling it , out of desperation, for a song to Jorg Haider’s uncle, who then left that bit of booty, when he died, to his nice heel-clicking nephew. Many fortunes in Europe were made that way. Why, the book and antiques trade in Austria and Germany has been living off such goods — see the sale of Kafka’s library, which he left to his sisters who were murdered in Nazi death camps, and ask just how that library came into the possession or this or that antikvariat or auction house, and multiply that by tens of thousands of examples. Oh, there was money to be made, and there still is.

When Kurt Waldheim, the late Secretary-General of the U.N. and an unpunished Nazi war criminal, was under siege (stoutly defended by, among others, his own son, “Gerhard Waldheim, Ph.D.”), Haider was among the many Austrians who rallied to his defense.

Let’s review the war career of the man he rallied to Waldheim was present during the round-up of Salonika’s Jews, who were forced to stand for hours and hours, absolutely motionless, under the sun of the city’s main square, while all around them the Nazi soldiers, and especially their wives (who had been allowed to accompany them to Greece), watched and jeered, until those Jews who had not died were sent off to the death camps. Waldheim took part in what was called “Operation Kozara,” whose tens of thousands of victims were mostly unarmed civilians, Serbs and some Jews, and he even won a Nazi medal for his performance in that operation. At the war’s end, Waldheim was an intelligence officer serving in a small unit that was later held guilty of war crimes but he escaped detection as a member of that unit. And later, when the photographs of him in his Nazi uniform set off the investigation that led to the outcry that led to the…that led to nothing, in the end, did it? He, Waldheim insisted that it wasn’t him, or it was he but he was never there, or there, or there, or at least not when people claimed he was. And for at least one of those episodes he absurdly maintained that he had been back home in Vienna, studying or taking an exam. He claimed; they all claim.

Haider is awful, and in ways that are not the usual ways, that even when he has done something that may be right, it cannot be held up for admiration or approval, as in this case. The real right-wing, which must include all defenders or apologists for Nazis, or for other defenders or apologists of the Nazis, cannot be tolerated. Besides, these are exactly the kind of people who, when it looks like the Neu Ordnung of Islam is winning, will quickly go over to the other side, just the way so many Nazis became dutiful and loyal servants of the Soviet Empire in Eastern Europe.

Ordinarily one has to be careful and sparing about the use of “right-wing” and “far right-wing,” because these terms are used, by The Guardian (and the inimitable Robert Fisk in The Independent), to blacken the name of so many who have given no signs of being “far-right” but only signs of recognizing the menace of the Muslim presence in the tolerant, advanced, and so-far helpless-to-resist countries of Western Europe. So we found that charming and articulate Pim Fortuyn, “libertin et egoiste,” and the uncowed unlibertine and conservative Geert Wilders, both described as “right-wing.” No doubt Ayaan Hirsi Ali, the grateful child of Spinoza’s Dutch Enlightenment, has also been described as “right-wing.” Whole communities, such as the Maronites of Lebanon, fighting for their lives during the PLO-imposed civil war in Lebanon, were demonized in the Western press as “right-wing.” It was Eugene Ionesco who noted thirty years ago that the phrase “right-wing Christians [of Lebanon]” was always employed by “the newspaper that everyone reads” — i.e., Le Monde — to describe not plutocrats, but Christian villagers, farmers, small merchants. He wondered what could conceivably make them “right-wing” except their desire to stay alive and not suffer the fate of the Christian women and children disemboweled by Muslims at Damur and other cities.

Today the phrase “right-wing” is systematically placed before the name of any person or group or journal or website that sturdily tells the truth about Jihad and Islam. Many called “right-wing” or “far right-wing” may merely be victims of a campaign to undo them in the public’s mind before they can be listened to, and judged on their merits, by what they actually say and do. But Jorg Haider is not one of them. By what he has, over the past few decades, said and done, he does deserve the epithet “far-right” — so that, even when he does something that is correct, he should not be noticed, and passed over in silence. One can be sure that Muslims will be delighted to pretend that they are outraged by this act by what they will call a “neo-Nazi,” though they and Jorg Haider, in many respects, should get along with each other very well.

So there it is. He supports the right legislation — the banning of further building of mosques and minarets. No doubt his support will be cleverly used by Muslims everywhere to undercut such measures, supported by much better people. And he’s also a far-right-wing swine, and if you accidentally stepped into his galère to be ferried around the lake, get out of that boat at once, and take another.

What more is there to say?


*Actually, there is lots more to be said. Read the comments also, they’re quite good.


* The Lizard wankfest continues, in overdrive

But Pamela over on Atlas Shrugs doesn’t buy any. The much derided ‘white power’ symbol from De Winters bookshelf dates back way back when, as we can see here:


* Charles Martell at the Battle of Tours in 732, which has traditionally been characterized as an event that halted the Islamic expansionism in Europe that had conquered Iberia. “Charles’s victory has often been regarded as decisive for world history, since it preserved western Europe from Muslim conquest and Islamization.”


“Had Charles Martel not been victorious,” Hitler told his inner crowd in August 1942, “then we should in all probability have been converted to Mohammedanism, that cult which glorifies the heroism and which opens up the seventh Heaven to the bold warrior alone. Then the Germanic races would have conquered the world.” Hitler told Mr. Speer that Islam is “perfectly suited to the Germanic temperament.”


Clear explanation by Paul Belien over at The Washington Times on Nazis and Islamists. I for one am not spooked by the newly resurrected old bogeyman – NAZIS! We are not at war with the Nazis. This is a distraction from addressing the real problem, the real scourge of civilization – Islamic jihad. Paul Belien is editor of the Brussels Journal and an adjunct fellow of the Hudson Institute.



One ‘sensitive’ moonbat, a ‘Josephine’ attacked Sheik Yer’mami on several occasions while offering no solution or suggestions at all. When taken to task she came up with this:

I agree that, in issues such as immigration policy, the average citizen is not consulted. Our towns, cities and countries are changed without our consent or input. Given that this has happened and is happening, I think it is up to citizens to get involved and become more vocal.

* Start singing, Josephine. Makes you vocal…

Is it necessary or desirable to align oneself with a group such as the BNP? I would not do it. If there was no other group concerned about changing immigration policy and defending and maintaining our democracy, then I hope I or others would have the time and energy to work for change within existing groups that do not have racist underpinnings or backgrounds.

I am opposed to limiting or stopping immigration based on race or ethnicity.
As to how immigration should be managed regarding the threat of Muslims who take their Islam seriously, well, I don’t know. I’m still reading the articles on this site and others and still trying to figure that one out.

The larger (philosophical but also practical) question, for me, is this: How do we defend our countries from the threat of Islam without reverting to a tribalistic mindset?

* Check this: Josephine is not afraid of suicide bombers, cutthroats who fly jets into buildings, honor killings, the burka and female genital mutilation, she worries that our society could somehow be ‘reverting to a tribalistic mindset’-

I think it would have to start with Islam being recognized by our governments as a political movement and not just a religion and would have to include the clear distinction that Islam is not a race.

Posted by: Josephine

* Great. She finally figured out that Islam is not a race.

* Are these the thoughts of a mature person or a mental midget? Would you trust such a person making decisions regarding the future of your country?

I wouldn’t.

Saudi Koranimal hands Pope a sword

* What will the pontiff do with it? Cut off the heads of disbelievers and Jews? Or use it to chop the bread for Christmas dinner?

Pope meets Saudi king to discuss Christian worship in Muslim kingdom

The king of Saudi Arabia met today with Pope Benedict XVI – the first ever between a pontiff an a reigning Saudi monarch – amid Vatican concerns about restrictions on Christian worship in the Muslim kingdom.

The Vatican said the “positive presence and work of Christians was raised” during the talks between Benedict and King Abdullah, who is protector of Islam’s holiest sites.

The talks were “warm” and allowed a wide discussion on the need for interreligious and intercultural dialogue among Christians, Muslims and Jews “for the promotion of peace, justice and spiritual and moral values, especially in support of the family,” the Vatican said in a statement.


The Pope and the king discussed Christian worship in the Muslim country

Both sides also emphasized the need for a “just solution” to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the Vatican said. Benedict has said he wants to reach out to all countries that still don’t have diplomatic relations with the Holy See, which include Saudi Arabia and China.

At the same time, Benedict and other Vatican officials have often protested that Christians are unable to worship openly in Saudi Arabia and are barred from opening churches in the desert kingdom.

The Vatican newspaper L’Osservatore Romano said the Vatican hoped the meeting would produce a frank dialogue between the two sides over the issue, noting that there are more than 1 million Christian guest workers in Saudi Arabia.

Abdullah also met separately with the Vatican secretary of state, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone.

At the start of the audience, Benedict warmly greeted Abdullah, grasping both his hands before heading into 30 minutes of private talks in his library.

The Vatican said Abdullah had requested the audience, which came during his European tour. He had visited the Vatican twice before, as crown prince and deputy prime minister.

At the end of the meeting, Abdullah presented Benedict with a traditional Middle Eastern gift – a golden sword studded with jewels – as well as a gold and silver statue of a palm tree and man riding a camel.

The pope admired the statue but merely touched the sword.


Just imagine Pope Benedict XVI giving anyone a sword. He wouldn’t, because such a gift would be inconsistent with his own self-image as a Christian leader, and with his view of Christianity. He views Christianity as a religion of peace. At his meeting with Abdullah, the contrast between the two religions, so controverted and controversial elsewhere, was plain, and taken for granted.

More from Reuters
Benedict sparked anger in the Muslim world in 2006 when he delivered a speech linking Islam to violence.

He said he was misunderstood and regretted offending Muslims. Since then, he has met a number of Islamic leaders and a year ago visited predominantly Muslim Turkey.

The Vatican has said it wants to pursue a dialogue with moderate Muslims.

* So would we. Unfortunately we can’t find any…


A second look at the Saudi’s

With thanks to Gramfan

Of the nineteen hijackers who attacked this nation on September 11, 2001, fifteen were Saudi Arabian. Moreover, each and every one of the nineteen hijackers was personally chosen and provided with training and financing by yet another Saudi native – Osama bin Laden. Yet from that day to this, in spite of these disturbing and incontrovertible facts, members of the Bush administration have glibly and incessantly assured us that the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is in fact one of our closest friends and allies in the War on Terror. Fifteen Saudis murdered nearly 3,000 Americans on live TV, all at the behest of one of the Kingdom’s prodigal sons. How can these facts possibly be mere trivia?

Militant Hamas Propaganda Arm CAIR Seethes Over Giuliani Endorsement By Pat Robertson

In 2002, President Bush repudiated rhetorical attacks on Islam by evangelical leaders. Media reports at the time said the president’s remarks were prompted by attacks on Islam, particularly those of Pat Robertson, who said that Muslims are “worse than the Nazis.” Bush said: “Some of the comments that have been uttered about Islam do not reflect the sentiments of my government or the sentiments of most Americans.”

* Bush wouldn’t say things like that because he is deeply in the Saudi pockets..

Then Secretary of State Colin Powell echoed the president’s remarks when he told a State Department audience, “This kind of hatred must be rejected.” The director of the American Jewish Committee called Robertson’s “Nazi” comment “outrageous.” …

* Calling an ideology of hatred a hateful ideology is a bad thing for some US officials? Who will protect us from such people? But this just goes to show that Powell was as clueless about Islam as Condi Rice, his successor…And for the director of the American Jewish Committee  who called Robertson’s “Nazi” comment “outrageous”- is he just a clueless idiot or a good dhimmi, or both?

“It is truly disturbing that a presidential candidate of any party would accept the endorsement and seek the advice of a person with such a clear record of anti-Muslim bigotry,” said CAIR National Legislative Director Corey Saylor.

Rudy Giuliani is quickly becoming CAIR’s least favorite presidential candidate.

* ‘Anti-Muslim bigotry?’ Is there such a thing? Is a desire for self-preservation not a natural instinct and every free mans birthright?


The Bunglawala Spin Factory

Here he is again, prevaricating, twisting, turning and spinning like an Iranian centrifuge: the Bunglawala Ding Dong: Muslims like him are uncommonly good at deception and obfuscation..skills in which western conservatives are sorely lacking.

His arguments are stupid, offensive, (because he thinks we are dumber than him) but Bungla is a good Muslim and a trained agit-prop, so he defends Islam as his Islamic duty commands him. Bungla claims it’s OK to have hate literature since others have it too.

So what is he actually saying?

* You do it too

* Dennis Mc Kion (spelling?) is a friend of Israel, that is unacceptable

* The West is invading Muslim nations, stealing Muslim land, killing Muslims... only Muslims are human. And from whom did the Muslims steal the land?

* You can find hate literature in Christian and Jewish scriptures (???)

* Muslims ‘suffered a lot because of freedom of speech’ regarding the Satanic Verses, because Salman Rushdie was protected by the British government and not stoned or hanged for blasphemy, that’s too bad…everything would be better under sharia …

* “Promoting the war in which real people have died in Iraq”? What about the real people who died in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania? . . . or in London, Bali and Madrid?

* Bungwalla redefines “hate speech” as any religious text with which one may disagree. That’s nuance.

“I can walk into any Evangelical Christian book store and find a book describing the profit mohammed as a pedophile, I find that deeply offensive”freedom of speech is really bad if it allows infidels to call Muhammad a pedophile because he married Aisha when she was 6 and he was 54

You can walk into any muslim book store and find the same thing. It’s called the koran.

* Sheik Yer’mami’s favorite: “We do not want Islam to have a bad name.”

Too late, Bunglawala.


Bucktooth Bashir: Bombings in America Are Cool- Bombings in Islamic World Not So Good…

Abu Bakr Al-Ba’shir, who served only 25 months in prison for his part in the Islamic mass murder attacks in Bali, says he doesn’t support bombings in the Islamic world, but mass murdering Americans is cool.

Oh, but if the Muslim mujahideen should happen to bomb somewhere in the Muslim world, they’re still “holy warriors.” They might be just a little bit misguided.

Also, democracy is very bad.


Link to MEMRI


Jihad Watch has the story up this morning:

Bashir has also said that naked women are worse than the Bali bombings, which, curiously enough, got no attention in the mainstream media compared to the widespread publicity that Sheikh Al-Hilali of Australia got for his “catmeat” remark. He has said that the Bali bombings were the will of Allah, and called the families of his victims to convert to Islam.

Anyway, note here, yet again, the strongly Islamic character of his statements. He is basing his entire appeal on Islam, and that is the one aspect of it that the politically correct multitudes would have us ignore.


10 Billion Dollar Mushi


Mushi in your pocket…

* Pakistan is build on Islam, nothing but Islam. Pakistan is a failed nation because of Islam. After 9/11, the Bush administration transferred more than 10 billion dollars to the Mushi-generals in order to ‘help’ the US against the global jihad. A monumental failure and miscalculation. Naturally, the Islamic nation of Pakistan will wage jihad, but not against its own people, because the jihad must continue against infidels and Jews (there are no Jews left in Pakistan) but that is what is taught in tens of thousands of madrassah’s around the country. That’s why the jihad for Kashmir continues, relentless. That’s why the jihad against India continues. That’s why thousands of Taliban find it easy to slip accross the border after attacking coalition forces in Afghanistan.

10 billion dollars.

Did this unbelievable amount of money help America in any way to secure the help of the Muslims of Pakistan? Ask yourself: how is it possible that Ayman Zawahiri and OBL are sitting pretty, somewhere in Pakistan, with all the amenities of modern life, unmolested in relative safety? Do you really believe that OBL with his many wifes and some 30 children can vanish from the face of the earth? Do you for one moment believe that the Pakistani secret service doesn’t know where these people are?


Eight years ago, President Clinton pressured and persuaded Pakistan President Nawaz Sharif to try to withdraw Pakistani Army forces and scale back the Pakistan Army-backed jihad against India in Kashmir. Army chief Pervez Musharraf and his supporters responded by overthrowing Sharif and taking control of the government, where he has remained for the past 8 years.

Mushi just declared martial law, for which the Bush administration criticizes him. But make no mistake about it: It won’t get any better. Mushi is the best we can get for our money. Anyone who believes that ‘democracy’ or any other abstract western fantasy will bring ‘light upon the Muslim nations’ is a Carterite fool.

During their devastating earthquake, no country was more forthcoming with aid than America, but they still hate the US. Over the last 5 years, no country has given them more money than America, but they still hate the US more than ever.

While the United States “reimburses” Pakistan billions of dollars for its “efforts” in the “war on terror,” Alexander Downer takes a more realistic view.

“Pakistan ‘less than robust’ at combating extremism,”

by Craig Skehan in the Sydney Morning Herald

The Howard Government has accused elements of Pakistani military intelligence of continuing to support Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan, where two Australian soldiers have been killed in the past month.

Foreign Minister Alexander Downer complained that some members of the Pakistani army were “less than robust” in combating Islamic extremism.

“And we’ve been concerned about some elements of the Pakistani intelligence services and their links to the Taliban,” Mr Downer said.

He said the Taliban – deposed in the wake of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks on the US because it had given sanctuary to al Qaeda – was originally a creation of Pakistani intelligence agents.

Such ties have their origins in the 1980s when the US channelled billions of dollars to Islamic militants fighting Soviet troops in Afghanistan.

The Australian Government believes some members of the Pakistan military’s Inter Services Intelligence (ISI) still provide covert support to pro-Taliban forces.

*Jihad terror in UK sourced in Pakistan

* Here is more indication of how energetic the tottering Musharraf regime has been in fighting jihadists in Pakistan. More on this story: “Terror in UK sourced in Pakistan: MI5 chief,” by Prasun Sonwalkar for Indo-Asian News Service (thanks to JW)
Over the last five years, much of the command, control and inspiration for attack planning in the UK has derived from Al Qaeda’s remaining core leadership in the tribal areas of Pakistan, according to the head of Britain’s intelligence service MI5.
In a rare speech to the Society of Editors’ annual conference in Manchester Monday titled ‘Intelligence counter terrorism and trust’, Jonathan Evans, the MI5 chief, said that often the planning used young British citizens to mount the actual attack.


Pakistan: Reforms fail at many madrassas

More background here on why the Musharraf regime is fighting for its life. The madrassas — all too many of them — “were preaching jihad before September 11, and they are still preaching jihad.”

And they don’t mean an interior spiritual struggle, either. “Osama is a Muslim, and whatever he is doing is in the interest of Islam,” says Muhammad Allahyar, who clearly must be some kind of Islamophobe.

“Reforms fail at many madrassas,”

by Willis Witter in the Washington Times (via JW)
Just a tiny fraction of the madrassas — estimated by some to number nearly 30,000 — have complied with rules requiring registration with the government, an accounting of private donations and an expanded syllabus that adds traditional subjects such as math and science to core religious classes.
The Jamia Naeemia madrassa in Lahore, which was visited by The Washington Times last month when the prospect of emergency rule seemed out of the question, stands out as an exception.

“There are two kinds of madrassas, those who changed their courses after September 11, and those who did not,” said Sarfraz Naeemi, the school”s headmaster.

“There”s no jihad, there”s no terrorism here,” Mr. Naeemi said of the school for 1,350 boys, a white-columned three-story complex that surrounds an open courtyard of smooth paved stone.

* “No jihad,- no terrorism”- that’s a good one. But jihad is the ‘pinnacle, the crest of Islam’- and without jihad no Islam, without Islam no terror. But ‘terror made me victorious’- said Muhammad, and he was the perfect man. So how can a good Muhammedan find salvation if he doesn’t become a ‘martyr’ and kills and dies for Allah?

* Let us know, all you peaceful, law-abiding Muslims out there. We’re really dying to know…


Morocco calls for return of ‘occupied territory’

* Of course: all of Al Andaluz is ‘occupied territory’-

but at present the official demand for return is ‘only’ for Ceuta and Melilla, Spain’s possessions in North Africa since more than 400 years. But rest assured, once these territories are returned, the quest for Spain will continue. Wasn’t it just last week that Al Zawahiri, Bin Ladens quack called every Muslim to wage jihad in Africa and called for Spain to be returned to the ummah? Because all land, any land, once conquered by the soldiers of Allah, must never be relinquished to the kuffar…



Morocco recalls ambassador from Spain

By HAROLD HECKLE, Associated Press Writer


Spain’s King Juan Carlos, left and Morocco’s King Mohammed VI

MADRID, Spain – Morocco recalled its ambassador from Spain on Friday after what it called a regrettable plan by Spain’s king and queen to visit two Spanish enclaves in North Africa that are claimed by Morocco.

King Juan Carlos and Queen Sofia are to make their first official visit to Ceuta and Melilla, Spain’s possessions in North Africa. Both territories are claimed by Morocco and are located on its northern Mediterranean coastline.

Spain insists the cities are as Spanish as Madrid or Barcelona. Morocco calls them “occupied” territory.

The cities, remnants of Spain’s once globe-spanning colonial empire, have been Spanish for more than 400 years, longer than Morocco has been a sovereign state, Spain says.

The two-day royal visit starting Monday, long-sought by residents of the enclaves, will be Juan Carlos’ first trip to Ceuta and Melilla as head of state. He and his wife visited in 1970, before he became king.

Morocco’s Foreign Ministry announced the “indefinite recall for consultation” of Ambassador Omar Azziman “following the official announcement … of the regrettable visit by his majesty King Juan Carlos on Nov. 5 and 6 to the occupied cities of Ceuta and Melilla,” the official Moroccan news agency MAP said Friday.

Morocco’s claim to Ceuta and Melilla has been a long-standing sore point in bilateral relations, which have become closer since 2004, when Spain’s left-leaning Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero took office, replacing conservative Jose Maria Aznar.

The enclave controversy is one of several sources of tension across the narrow straits that divide Morocco and Spain.

This week, Moroccan government spokesman Khalid Naciri questioned the motivations of a Spanish judge, Baltasar Garzon, who announced the opening of an inquest into suspected atrocities against North African Saharawi people — ostensibly at the hands of Moroccan authorities. Naciri accused Garzon of dabbling in politics.

Spain withdrew from its former colony Western Sahara after the death of dictator Francisco Franco in 1975, and Morocco annexed the territory — the Saharawi people’s ancestral homeland. Saharawis have said crimes were committed during and after the Moroccan invasion.

In 2002, during Aznar’s premiership, a handful of Moroccan soldiers briefly occupied the half-square-mile Spanish island of Perejil, near the Moroccan coast.

Spanish troops swiftly dislodged the Moroccans from the rocky island, which Spain has claimed for centuries. Under a U.S.-mediated diplomatic resolution, both sides agreed not to put troops on it again.

On Thursday, MAP carried comments from Naciri on relations with Spain.

“All Moroccans agree that Ceuta and Melilla are Moroccan and that there is not a single Moroccan who thinks or who would write otherwise,” he was quoted as saying.

* All 5 gazillion Muslims in the world support that claim, each and every one of them…

Naciri stressed Morocco’s desire for good relations with Spain, but added that “the time for colonial responses is definitely over.”

There are “red lines related to Morocco’s territorial integrity that must not be crossed,” MAP quoted Naciri as saying. “Our Spanish friends should understand.”

He called for a solution to the problem through negotiations.

An official of the Spanish royal palace, speaking on condition of anonymity, declined to say why the royal couple had chosen now to make the trip.

The last Spanish monarch to visit Ceuta and Melilla was Juan Carlos grandfather, Alfonso XIII, in 1927.

Spanish leaders tend to stay away from them because of the political sensitivities. A January 2006 visit by Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero was the first official trip by a Spanish premier since 1980.

UK: ‘Rivers of blood’ candidate forced to resign

From ‘The Truth Is Bad News” Department:


Nigel Hastilow: he was forced to go after refusing to retract his remarks
Francis Elliott, Deputy Political Editor/Times Online

A Conservative candidate who said that Enoch Powell was right about immigration resigned yesterday, insisting that he had done nothing wrong.

Nigel Hastilow, a former newspaper editor and until yesterday the Tory candidate for the marginal seat of Halesowen in the West Midlands, quit after a meeting with Caroline Spelman, the party chairman.

He had been asked to apologise for an article he wrote for the Express and Star newspaper in Wolverhampton in which he invoked Mr Powell’s infamous “Rivers of blood” speech. “When you ask most people in the Black Country what the single biggest problem facing the country is, most say immigration,” he wrote. “Many insist: ‘Enoch Powell was right.’

“Enoch, once MP for Wolverhampton South-West, was sacked from the Conservative front bench and marginalised politically for his 1968 ‘Rivers of blood’ speech, warning that uncontrolled immigration would change our country irrevocably. He was right. It has changed dramatically.”


Enoch Powell

The candidate, the former editor of The Birmingham Post, was asked during the one-hour meeting at Ms Spelman’s home in Solihull to make a full public apology as a condition of staying a parliamentary candidate.

In the official statement announcing his resignation Mr Hastilow said that he was sorry if his article had “undermined the progress David Cameron has made on the issue of immigration” but he failed to retract his remarks. Afterwards, he said that he had been unable to “come to terms” with the Tory party chairman.

He said: “They wanted me to issue a statement apologising and I didn’t feel I had anything to apologise for,” he said. “If I had said sorry I could have stayed on, but I am not sorry.” He repeated that immigration was an important issue. As far as I am concerned, there are too many people coming into the country and we cannot afford to accommodate them.”

He told The Times that he had been taken aback by the support that he had received. “I have had hundreds of e-mails from all over the country telling me to keep at it. I left a pile of them with Caroline.”

He added that he accepted that his political career was now at an end.

Mr Hastilow had received the support of his local party before meeting with Ms Spelman. Mary Docker, the chairman of the Halesowen and Rowley Regis Conservative Association, said: “He’s a very strong local candidate who’s got the Labour Party scared.”

After his resignation Jeffrey Hill, a local Tory councillor and member of Mr Hastilow’s campaign team, said: “I would have continued to support him as a local candidate. When he said that people were raising immigration as their primary concern on the doorstep he was telling the truth.”

* Looks like the people don’t matter in new Islamic Britannia

However, Mr Hill conceded that the candidate had come to the seat with a reputation for being outspoken. Standing for the Tories in 2001 in Edgbaston, Mr Hastilow wrote that William Hague, then the party leader, was “struggling to reignite a party which seems to have lost the fire needed to do battle and lost the will to win”.

Although Mr Hastilow’s resignation spares Mr Cameron some embarrassment, senior politicians expressed disappointment that he had not been summarily dismissed like Patrick Mercer, sacked from the front bench for condoning racial abuse in the Armed Forces.

Hazel Blears, the Communities Secretary, said: “It is right that Mr Hastilow will not stand as a candidate but the real question is why did David Cameron dither for 24 hours over whether to sack him before Mr Hastilow resigned. David Cameron still has not condemned Mr Hastilow’s words and he must do so without any further dithering.”

‘We must be mad, literally mad . . . ’

These are extracts from Enoch Powell’s speech on April 20, 1968 to Conservatives in the West Midlands:

Those whom the gods wish to destroy, they first make mad. We must be mad, literally mad, as a nation to be permitting the annual inflow of some 50,000 dependants who are for the most part the material of future growth of the immigrant-descended population.

“It is like watching a nation busily engaged in heaping up its own funeral pyre. As I look ahead I am filled with foreboding. Like the Roman, I seem to see ‘the River Tiber foaming with much blood’. That tragic and intractable phenomenon which we watch with horror on the other side of the Atlantic but which there is interwoven with the history and existence of the States itself, is coming upon us here by our own volition and our own neglect.

“Indeed, it has all but come in numerical terms, it will be of American proportions long before the end of the century. Only resolute and urgent action will avert it even now.

“Whether there will be the public will to demand and obtain that action, I do not know. All I know is that to see and not to speak would be the greatest betrayal.”

* Indeed. There is lots of betrayal going on in the Western world today. And its been a long time since a traitor was hanged for treason…

‘All modern discoveries are by Muslim scientists’

They cured polio, flew to the moon, perfected the heart transplant — wait, no, scratch that. But they did do absolutely everything else.

There is a certain sadness to this kind of ridiculous triumphalism, for it just begs the question of why, then, is the Islamic world so mired in misery today?

But that question, of course, brings us right back to Zionist Crusader paranoia. It’s too bad Muslim scientists haven’t discovered a cure for that.


LAHORE: Muslim scientists have made all discoveries of the current age, said University of Columbia’s Arabic and Islamic Studies prof George Saliba at a seminar at the Government College University (GCU) on Monday. The seminar, titled The Problems of Historiography of Islamic Science, was held at Fazl-e-Hussain Hall. Saliba gave a critique of the standard classical accounts of the rise of Islamic science. He detailed problems in the accounts and explained alternative historiography that described the rise of an Islamic scientific tradition as a result of social and political conditions within the nascent Islamic empire. He said Muslim philosophy was the impetus behind Islamic science that had contributed to various disciplines including botany, zoology, algebra, trigonometry, physics, chemistry, astronomy, physics, chemistry, physiology and mathematics in the pre-industrial era. He said the use of decimal fractions was not a Western invention and that it was discovered by a Muslim scientist. He said the binary system, on which the computer was based, was also invented by a Muslim scientist. He said Arab/Islamic science was not an intermediary between Greek science and European science, but was rather the Renaissance that integrated the Islamic science with European science. Saliba also visited the English Language and Literature Department where he engaged faculty members in a conversation on the Islamic and Renaissance paradigms.

* There you go. Still wondering why they cook history, destroy Buddha statues and deny that the temple mount belongs to the Jews?

* Islam and Muslims for 1400 years have nothing to show for except destruction, enslavement, piracy, subjugation of infidels, and overall abject poverty. They have developed the spinning of tall tales and false claims into a fine art. Ever since Muhammad claimed that Jesus, Moses, Abraham etc. were all Muslims, the soldiers of Allah usurped other peoples achievements while at the same time destroying everything that stood in the way of Islam.

Isn’t it odd that Moses Maimonides, a Jewish rabbi, physician, and philosopher in Andalusia was actually Shaykh Musa bin Maymoun al-Qurtubi for the Muslims?

Why not? Was he not a good dhimmi who was allowed to live and work in Islamic Spain? So why not claim his achievements for Islam?

You can find the good ‘sheik Maimonides’ on Yusuf Irfan’s website, aptly named ‘planet irf’- but we won’t link to it…


Yet the philosopher Maimonides, a Jew who lived for a time in Muslim Spain and then fled that supposedly tolerant and pluralistic land, remarked, “you know, my brethren, that on account of our sins God has cast us into the midst of this people, the nation of Ishmael, who persecute us severely, and who devise ways to harm us and to debase us…No nation has ever done more harm to Israel. None has matched it in debasing and humiliating us. None has been able to reduce us as they have….We have borne their imposed degradation, their lies, and absurdities, which are beyond human power to bear.”

Notably, Maimonides directed that Jews could teach rabbinic law to Christians, but not to Muslims. For Muslms, he said, will interpret what they are taught “according to their erroneous principles and they will oppress us. [F]or this reason…they hate all [non-Muslims] who live among them.” But the Christians, he said, “admit that the text of the Torah, such as we have it, is intact” as opposed to the Islamic view that the Jews and Christians have corrupted their scriptures. Christians, continued Maimonides, “do not find in their religious law any contradiction with ours.”

Holland: Government subsidies for mosques “not unconstitutional’

From the -sinking- land of blue eyed fools:

* Subsidies for mosques “not unconstitutional?’ Of course not.

After all, it’s a Religion of Peace!


* Peaceful Muslims after Friday prayers…

So are they at least trying to determine which mosques are openly preaching jihad and Islamic supremacism and which aren’t? Why, of course not! What are you, some kind of Islamophobe?

“The Lower House was debating with the government on the controversial Westermoskee mosque, for which Amsterdam municipality provided a loan of 2 million euros. Once the construction had started, the mosque withdrew its signature from a covenant pledging it would send out a liberal message.”

“Ministers: Govt Subsidies for Mosques Not Unconstitutional,” from NIS News (thanks to Fjordman via DW):

THE HAGUE, 03/11/07 – The government is inquiring whether Milli Gorus is an extremist organisation but will continue to subsidise it. Milli Gorus is also to remain an official discussion partner for cabinet policy regarding Muslims.
Separation of church and state means that interference by the State in internal religious issues is not accepted, but it does not mean there can be no common ground between political and religious organisations. Government financial support is possible for organisations and activities that are “affiliated to religious organisations” such as mosques, according to Justice Minister Ernst Hirsch Ballin.

The Lower House was debating with the government on the controversial Westermoskee mosque, for which Amsterdam municipality provided a loan of 2 million euros. Once the construction had started, the mosque withdrew its signature from a covenant pledging it would send out a liberal message. Furthermore, 1.2 million euros has disappeared through presumed fraud. The construction has been halted.

* Beautiful. The Euro-dhimmi’s pay for a bunker where the religion of peace plans the destruction of infidels and Jews but the good Muslims steal the money: just give ’em some more!

During the debate, conservative (VVD) MP Henk Kamp wondered why the government indirectly subsidises the construction of mosques but not that of churches or houses of worship of other religions. Integration Minister Ella Vogelaar thereupon replied that subsidies could help create a more positive image of certain groups that need this. “Naturally, these are difficult considerations” and “one must look carefully which organisations the government enters into agreements with”.


Amsterdam entered into an agreement with envoys of the controversial Turkish organisation Milli Gorus. Vogelaar: “The Westermoskee case illustrates how difficult this choice can sometimes prove and that in hindsight, a different choice should possibly have been made”. The actual intention was to promote the integration of Turks by building a mosque, since “mosques can help to reach certain groups”.

* They do. The mosques really do reach ‘certain groups’ – hahahaha!

Vogelaar also confirmed there was “a subsidy relationship with Milli Gorus” and her ministry on a national level. She has no wish to end this relationship and would only “consider this if indications should emerge that give cause for suspicion of criminal acts or extremism”. The same applies to the position of Milli Gorus in the Contact Body of Muslims and the Government (CMO), with which the government consults on integration policy.

According to Party For Freedom (PVV) MP Sietse Fritsma, such indications are numerous. He exhibited a file of quotes by international Milli Gorus leaders, “such as ‘Jews are bacteria’, he stated. Vogelaar however remained adamant that there were no indications of extremism, although Fritsma further attempted that “you know how things go at the European headquarters of Milli Gorus in Germany”.


Vogelaar also refused to confirm that Westermoskee leaders were “untrustworthy”, as Kamp said they were. He too had “indications that Milli Gorus expressly obstructs the integration of Turks in the Netherlands”. With the exception of Christian mini-pary SGP, which also expressed serious concern, the other parties hardly contributed to the debate.

Reluctantly, Vogelaar promised the VVD and PVV an inquiry into Milli Gorus. She did remark that precisely due to the separation of church and state, it is “not for us to judge” the degree of radicalisation of religious organisations.

* Of course not! ‘Not for us to judge’- don’t you just love it?


* Wanna be ‘liberated’ by Vogelaar?

* If there was a price for ‘dumber than dirt’ it should go to Vogelaar…


Italy terrorism raids: 20 arrested

* Caliphate News Network discovers ‘Salafite Jihad cells’,- but not a word about Islam:

ROME, Italy (CNN) — Twenty people suspected of involvement in the recruitment of suicide bombers were arrested in Italy and other European countries Tuesday, an Italian police spokesman told CNN.

Those arrested are suspected of forming Salafite Jihad cells who were recruiting suicide bombers and sending them to Iraq and Afghanistan, said Col. Mario Parente, deputy commander of the Carabinieri special forces unit.

He said a total of 20 Italy were being arrested Tuesday. Police arrested 11 people in Italy and nine others across Europe.

Parente did not specify in which countries the arrests were carried out.

During the arrests, Parente said, police found al Qaeda manuals for the production of explosives, detonation devices, and various poisons. He said the manuals also included details of guerrilla-style war operations.

Those arrested are also accused of producing false documents, facilitating illegal immigration, and covering up other individuals wanted for terrorism-related crimes, Parente said

Kosovo: Islamic Heroin Republic With America’s Blessing?

Debate on U.S. Kosovo Policy Brewing in Washington

* Hello? Anybody home? Anybody realizing what the Clitman administration has done in Kosovo?

One of the supreme ironies of the “Global War on Terror” has been the consistency with which the US has pursued pro-jihadist foreign and military policies since the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. Not even the spectacular carnage of 9/11 has shaken the resolve of the State Department, for example, to back Muslim demands against Christian Serbia in Kosovo. The US of course backed jihadis during the Balkan wars of the 1990s, first the Bosnians — allying ourselves with such Muslim luminaries as Alija Izetbegovic (see his Islamic Declaration if you still aren’t sure of his true sympathies) and Osama bin Laden (that’s “Mr bin Laden” if you ask the New York Times) — and later the KLA in Kosovo.


* Wahabi mosque in Kosovo

Slowly — haltingly — it seems that reality is beginning to catch up with US policy. Herewith the latest from the redoubtable Serge Trifkovic in Chronicles Magazine on US policy in Kosovo:

As we near the deadline of December 10 for the Contact Group “Troika’s” report on its attempts to negotiate a solution to the problem of Kosovo, the voices of reason in the United States are finally becoming more influential and more articulate than ever before. Over the past two weeks alone, John Bolton, Christian Science Monitor commentator David Young, and a host of prominent analysts meeting at a conference in Washington D.C. have warned that the U.S. policy in the Balkans is heading for the rocks.
On November 1 the Voice of America interviewed former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, John Bolton, about the future status of Kosovo. Mr. Bolton expressed the view that the State Department has conducted a consistently anti-Serbian policy for more than 15 years. Unfortunately, he said, this biased policy has continued even though there is no logical reason for it after the fall of Milosevic:

While Serbia is trying to establish an effective and functional democracy regarding human rights and other issues, the anti-Serbian policy has continued, especially with regard to Kosovo, where a decision in favor of its independence could only create other concerns. Such a decision could impact on the democracy in progress in Serbia, and the possibility that the Security Council would step beyond its authority, which would be very unfortunate. This is one of the numerous examples of behavior by the State Department, which is a problem the next President has to solve.
John Bolton is the most prominent former Administration official so far to be so outspoken about the U.S. policy in the former Yugoslavia. In his VoA interview he was adamant that the United States should not recognize any unilateral declaration of Kosovo independence:

Such a decision, which would be taken under threat of violence, would actually represent a way to reward bad behavior. The issue of Kosovo should be solved by two parties at the negotiation table . . . this is much better than to impose a solution on one side or the other, based on a wrong understanding of the situation.
Bolton added that the last thing we should do is to sow the seeds for future conflicts under the pressure of one side or the other. Of his new book, “Surrender Is Not an Option: Defending America at the United Nations and Abroad,” Bolton said it was focused on how the policy is actually formulated. He quoted a senior State Department official who told him that “if they knew how we formulate our foreign policy, Americans would be very dissatisfied.”

Indeed they would. Read it all.

“U.S. Kosovo Policy Is Bad for Israel”

From Israel’s prestigious Begin-Sadat Center, Bar Ilan University: The more you pull the thread to appease the jihadists, the more the sweater unravels. Hand them Kosovo today, the more pressure builds to chop up Israel too.

“Strong American support for the independence of Kosovo is detrimental to Israeli interests. Washington futilely hopes to curry favor with the Islamic world through appeasement; effectively gives a fresh impetus to the ongoing growth of Islamic influence in Europe; and denies the fact that the putative state’s leaders are tainted by terrorism, criminality, and well-documented links with global jihad. Most importantly, it betrays a cynically postmodern contempt for all claims based on the historical rights and spiritual significance of a land to a nation” — claims at the heart of modern Israel.

…The Saudi-financed Kosovo Muslims have destroyed more than 150 churches over the past several years, and have terrorized Kosovar Christians and so led to their mass exodus from the province.

Sydney: 1,000 protest against Islamic school

* From the ABC with thanks to Savitch:

* From the ‘come and smell the coffee’ department:

Around 1,000 people rallied against plans to build a large Islamic school in south-west Sydney last night.

The Quranic society has lodged a development application for a 1,200-place school with Camden Council but Mayor Chris Paterson says there have already been 284 submissions against the proposal.

Councillor Paterson says most of the opposition is on planning and traffic grounds.

One woman speaking at last night’s meeting said residents were concerned about traffic and they did not want people from Muslim backgrounds like in areas closer to Sydney.

“I believe in everyone having their own religion, whether they’re Catholic, Church of England or Muslims – they’re fine – but I’ve seen what’s happened at Bankstown,” she said.

“Bankstown used to be a really nice town. People are terrified.”

Local federal MP Pat Farmer, who also attended the meeting, says it is not a racist issue.


* Well brother, you better go check with Charles Johnson and the canniballistic lizards from LGF, they’ll set you straight! You racist Nazi, white power supremacists, you…


* Lebanese hate preacher calls infidels and Jews ‘sons of apes and swine’

“It’s more an issue of council consulting with the local people in their area to be able to have a say in what goes on in their area,” he said.

Mr Farmer says people are concerned that the historic rural feeling of their town may change.

“Council requires an application if you want to do something as little as setting up a barbecue area out in your backyard to a pergola, let alone fences around your property. Council has a say in all of that,” he said.


* The ‘solution’ these people have in mind is of course, Islam, nothing but Islam, which means death , subjugation or forcible conversion for the kuffar. (kuffar or kafir: that’s you and me, just in case you’re wondering) Yes, Bankstown used to be really nice…


“The people are saying, ‘Well, those sorts of things are up for scrutiny by the neighbours. Why shouldn’t any large piece of infrastructure be up for scrutiny by the neighbours?'”

Meeting organiser Emil Frenchevich has told ABC Local Radio people have a right to have a say about their community without being labeled racist.

“Let the people decide,” he said. “Why is it that politicians always make these rules where they say, ‘You must do this and you must do that,’ irrespective of some so-called political correctness?”

Camden Council says it expects the matter to come before council early next year.

* When will the nutroots and the polit-props start taking notice?


Risotto Delusions

From the ‘Clueless & Befuddled In Arabia’ series:

RAMALLAH, West Bank (CNN) — A Palestinian state alongside Israel is within reach, U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said Monday after talks with the Palestinian president and Israeli prime minister.


* The result of affirmative action: a clueless fruitcake and the Pali-gravy train engine mama…

* With Secretary Rice next to him, “moderate” “peace partner” Mahmoud Abbas shared with the reporters that “I also reiterated to Dr. Rice the need for
the Israelis to commit to stop the military aggressions against our people

in the West Bank and Gaza, as well as the stopping of incursions and
assassinations and the military checkpoints” =
Israel has to stop defending

Rice said a proposed summit in Annapolis, Maryland, later this year can be a “launching pad” toward a two-state solution.

* Last week the Pali’s used a schoolyard as a ‘launching pad’ for rockets into Israel…

“We appear to be on course to prepare seriously for continuous ongoing negotiations,” said Rice, who appeared at a press briefing in the West Bank with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas. She met Sunday with Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, who underscored the importance of the Annapolis summit in a speech.

* “continuous ongoing negotiations” = Rice-speak for jihad against Israel

“Annapolis will be the jumping-off point for continued serious and in-depth negotiations which will not avoid any issue or ignore any division which has clouded our relations with the Palestinian people for many years,” Olmert said.

Rice said there are “very clear signs” Arab neighbors want the process to succeed. “I can really say without fear of contradiction that everybody’s goal is the creation” of a Palestinian state, she said.

* Translation: Arab neighbors want the process to succeed= destruction of Israel. Creation of a Palestinian state” simply means replacing Israel with an Arab nightmare called Palistan.

* Rice, that awful Rice, is hellbent on making this her legacy.

Israel’s anti-Zionist leaders

by Caroline Glick JP

From October 26-30, a mob of Druse villagers in Peki’in in the Galilee launched what has all the markings of a pogrom against the four Jewish families in the village. They burned their cars and surrounded and torched their homes.

The police took a full day to come to the Jews’ defense. And when they did, the Druse mob kidnapped a policewoman and only set her free in exchange for their cohorts who had been arrested. The police then set about evacuating the Jews from their encircled homes and did nothing to prevent their homes from being destroyed by the mob.

Now the Knesset’s Interior Committee is demanding that a governmental commission of inquiry be set up to investigate what the Druse claim was police brutality in attempting to disperse the violent mob. For its part the Olmert government is distancing itself from Internal Security Minister Avi Dichter’s decision to suffice with an internal police investigation of the policemen’s behavior at the scene.

Tony Blair: Israel needs to forget that its enemies want to destroy it utterly, and help put them in a better position to do so


Yes, says Blair, the “Palestinians” have always been untrustworthy, but trust them anyway.

“BLiar: Israel needs psychological shift,” by David Horovitz for the Jerusalem Post via DW


Fitzgerald: That shallow flim-flam man, Tony Blair


Tony Blair, simply assumes that treaty-making is the same everywhere in the world. It has never occurred to him — why should it, given his temperament, given his mental makeup — that possibly in the world of Islam, treaty-making with Infidels is not a matter of Pacta Sunt Servanda, but of doing exactly as Muhammad did, in 628 A.D., when he made the Treaty, or Agreement, with the Meccans, a treaty that was essentially a “truce treaty” or “hudna” that was to last ten years, and that he broke at the first opportunity, just as soon as he felt strong enough to attack the Meccans. It is regarded in Muslim commentaries as the final word on how Muslims should regard any treaties, agreements, hudnas, that they might sign, at a time when such signing is made necessary by events.

Does Tony Blair know that? Does he care to examine all the other treaties and agreements that Israel entered into with the Arab Muslim states, starting with the Armistice Agreements of 1949? Does he?


Pali-faux student tries to slip past Israeli authorites into US

* Another example of how bleeding hearts are manipulated by Pali-thugs:

A Palestinian “university student” supposedly trapped in Gaza tried to slip past Israeli authorities and into Texas with a forged document—but was thwarted by the Associated Press.

Kudos to the AP for this one.

A Palestinian included by a human rights group as one of hundreds of university students trapped in Gaza is apparently not a student and used what appeared to be a forged document to make his case to leave for Texas, The Associated Press learned on Thursday.

“Gisha,” a human rights group advocating freedom of movement for Palestinians, is pressing the Israeli Supreme Court to allow university students to leave Gaza to continue their studies abroad. The group included Yaser Betar in its suit, presenting the court with a one-page document from the University of North Texas affirming that he is enrolled in a doctorate program.

But after the AP sent the document to the university, its spokeswoman replied that the document was not authentic, and Betar “is not currently enrolled at the university. He studied Engineering Technology as an undergraduate student from spring 1992 to fall 1998 and did not earn a degree.”
