Omar Bakri Says Christmas Day is Not Off Limits for Attacks

Hat tip: Weasel Zippers

December 17, 2007 – San Francisco, CA – – Exiled radical sheikh Omar Bakri Mohammed gave a shocking answer to a question he was recently asked in an Internet chat room.

Asked on one of his regular sessions on Paltalk whether, “Muslims can attack “Christian invaders” on Christmas Day,” Bakri says that the celebration is not a holiday, or a “proper day of respect” for Muslims and is an appropriate day for attacks.

“That is really for them and not for us,he said, adding that times of attack are chosen by Islamic commanders, and they make a decision whether to attack regardless of the festival or celebration.

Bakri is the founder of banned Islamic fundamentalist groups Al-Muhajiroun and Al-Guraba. He left London for Beirut after the July 2005 London terrorist attacks, which claimed the lives of 52 people. He is still banned from reentering Britain, see:

Bakri caused a media storm after the bombings by declaring that the only people he blames for the London bombings are the government and British public, see:

Bakri and Santa Claus

Another member of Bakri’s cyber flock asked him, “I have a son going to (elementary) school, being given Christmas cards and being told to believe (in Santa Claus). What can be done?”

Bakri tells the father he needs to obey the laws of Allah, and that to save his family from Allah’s hellfire he should not send his son to the kuffar (heathen) school during the Christmas period. He went on to say that during the Christmas season, his son could be exposed at school “to all that corruption and (heathen goings on), and even celebration.”

BAGHDAD – Security will be increased at Baghdad’s mosques and other holy sites ahead of the Eid al-Adha holiday that begins Wednesday, an Iraqi official said.

Extra bomb-detecting equipment will be deployed throughout the capital’s places of worship, along with other sites, such as amusement parks, that are likely to attract crowds during the four-day holiday, chief military spokesman for Baghdad, Brig. Gen. Qassim al-Mousawi, said at a news conference on Tuesday….

13 Islamic Terrorists Roasted in Gaza

By Nidal al-Mughrabi

Israel killed 13 Palestinian militants in air strikes in the Gaza Strip, its most deadly military response in months to frequent rocket attacks from the Hamas-controlled territory.

Islamic Jihad, the group behind many of the rocket launchings that have been disrupting life in southern Israel, said four of its members were killed on Tuesday as they walked out of a mosque in the Jabalya refugee camp in northern Gaza.

Hours earlier, air strikes killed seven Islamic Jihad militants, including a senior Gaza commander, prompting the group to threaten suicide bombings inside the Jewish state.

Israel has not been hit by a suicide bombing in 11 months, a respite that helped pave the way for renewed peace efforts with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, who opposes such attacks.

“I hope these successes will continue,” Israeli Defence Minister Ehud Barak, referring to the air strikes, told reporters in Tel Aviv. “Having said that, we must take all precautions against possible retaliation from the other side.”

In Paris, where he attended an international donors meeting that followed last month’s Annapolis peace conference, Abbas called on Israel to stop construction in Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank.

He described the building work as “an obstacle that hampers negotiations.”

Israeli Vice Premier Haim Ramon said construction was largely limited to settlement blocs Israel intended to keep in any peace deal with the Palestinians.

He said on Army Radio that “targeted killings” in the Gaza Strip help to curb cross-border rocket fire. Israel uses the term to describe attacks on top Palestinian militants.


In the southern Gaza Strip, an air strike killed two Hamas security men. The Israeli army said the attack was in response to mortar bombs fired earlier at southern Israel. It said gunmen also launched five rockets. No one was hurt on the Israeli side.

At a funeral for the Islamic Jihad fighters, gunmen fired in the air, accidentally severing a high-voltage power line. It fell on the crowd, killing one of the mourners and wounding seven others, medical officials said.

Israel Releases Hamas Terrorist: Promptly Calls for Kidnapping More IDF Soldiers….

Thanks to Weasel Zippers

( Less than one day after her release from Israeli prison, Hamas terrorist Samar Isbaeh called on Hamas not to release kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit, and to kidnap more soldiers.


In a press conference in Beit Hanoun, Isbaeh expressed sorrow at having missed rallies in celebration of 20 years since the establishment of Hamas. She told her audience that she dedicated her release to arch-terrorist Sheikh Ahmed Yassin and other terrorist “martyrs.”

Isbaeh served 28 months in prison for producing bombs and relaying messages between terrorist groups in Gaza and those in Judea and Samaria. Her husband, who helped her in her activities, served six months. Isbaeh was the focus of media attention after giving birth to a son in prison 19 months ago.

Berlin: Lebanese Rapist bitch-slaps Judge

From Tagesspiegel/in German

* A Muslim-Lebanese rapist was evicted from the courtroom for bad behavior and for calling the judge a ‘Nazi and a racist’. We all know that Germans are all Nazi’s and racists anyhow, even the lizards on LGF know that, so nobody should get upset.

* Rape of infidel women is the natural right of the Muhammedan. Because infidel women are war-booty. And anyhow, they are all whores because they don’t cover up: as a devoted follower of the prophet Muhammad this rapist just can’t understand why it should be wrong doing the ‘right thing’-

* The name of the good man was not made public. Muhammedan rapists do have a right to privacy…

* The poor fellow got 10 years in the can, after a court-case that dragged on over three and a half years. Whacking the judge may have had something to do with the less than lenient judgment.


Cologne: Muslim Father Beats Up Kindergarten Principal

* Kölner Stadt-Anzeiger Dezember 2007

When the catholic kindergarten in St. Remigius accepted a five-year old son of a Muslim family, the staff believed it was understood that it was an institution of faith where Christian values are taught. All the brochures and the homepage of St. Remigius make that unmistakably clear. However, when the father came to pick up his filius, he heard a Christian prayer, which sent him in rage. He attacked the teacher, threw her against the door frame whereby she received some head injuries which lasted for days. She merely tried to explain to him that in a Catholic school it is part of the curriculum that the kids be taught how to pray.

The police was called and arrived little later.

The father, who has a record of bad behavior, received a restraining order and was barred from going to this kindergarten.

‘We are further investigating for assault and intimidation’ – said Jörg Leinen, press-speaker for the police in Rhein-Erft-.

* Since misunderstandings like this one seem to be increasing recently, parliamentarian for the Greens, Abgeordnete Marieluise Beck, stated: “Das müssen wir aushalten.” (We have to bear it)

* Since nobody asked why, it seems the Germans are bearing it….

* Monika Haas, the kindergarten teacher, says ‘we can’t blame the children for the behavior of their parents’- the boy is allowed to continue coming to this school.


Cologne Suitcase Bombers Get ‘Long’ Sentences 

A  court in Beirut has sentenced one of the two Lebanese men who planted suitcase bombs on German trains last year to 12 years in jail. The other one was sentenced in absentia to life in prison. The crudely-made bombs didn’t go off but prosecutors argued they could have killed many people. 


Youssef el-Hajdib, 23, went on trial in a German court on Tuesday. A Beirut court on Tuesday sentenced him to life imprisonment in absentia.


Two Lebanese men who tried but failed to detonate bombs on two trains in Germany in 2006 have been sentenced to 12 years and life in jail respectively.
The men made the bombs from tanks filled with propane gas and crude detonators, hid them in suitcases and placed them on two German regional trains in Cologne station in July 2006. The triggers went off but failed to detonate the canisters. German authorities said they could have caused many deaths if they had.

A court in Beirut sentenced Jihad Hamad, 22, to 12 years in prison on Tuesday. It also sentenced his accomplice Youssef Mohammed el-Hajdib, 23, to life in prison, even though el-Hajdib is in custody in Germany, where he went on trial on Tuesday in a court in Düsseldorf. Lebanon’s judicial system allows courts to try Lebanese citizens suspected of committing a crime abroad.
Hamad said the plot was intended as revenge for cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad (more…) that were first published in a Danish newspaper in 2005 and sparked protests across the Muslim world. European publications including a German newspaper reprinted the cartoons as an affirmation of the right to free speech.


“Higher education and standard of living are positively associated with participation in Hamas or Islamic Jihad and with becoming a suicide bomber”


* Educated Jihad Apes 

* What? What’s that?

Didn’t our polit-props from peanut Khadr to Willie Clitman and every lefty ‘think tank’ keep telling us for years now that it is only poverty that causes terrorism, and if we would only throw enough money at the problem ‘our Muslims’ would all become just like us? Typically, any leftist out there will tell you that to wipe out terrorism we must wipe out poverty and provide education to all. In reality the jihadists use the internet for Islamic terrorist propaganda and dissimulation , and they use cell-phones to blow us up. A large part of the money raised in the West goes towards the global jihad.


Robert Spencer:

Over the years we have posted many studies that show that not only does poverty not lead to terrorist activity, but that jihad terrorists are generally better educated and wealthier than their peers. Here’s another: “Evidence about the Link Between Education, Poverty and Terrorism among Palestinians,” by Claude Berrebi of the RAND Corporation.

The abstract:

This paper investigates the ways in which terrorism is linked to education and poverty using data newly culled from Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) documentary sources. The paper presents a statistical analysis of the determinants of participation in terrorist activities by members of the Hamas and PIJ between the late 1980s and May 2002. The resulting evidence suggests that both higher education and standard of living are positively associated with participation in Hamas or PIJ and with becoming a suicide bomber, while being married significantly reduces the probability of participation in terrorist activities.

Grenade explosion at Gaza funeral march kills four

Gaza City – At least four people died and more than 30 were injured when a grenade exploded during a funeral procession in Gaza City Friday, hospital officials said.
Some five of the injured were in serious condition, they said.

Police run by the radical Islamic Hamas movement ruling Gaza said Friday’s explosion was caused by a grenade which one of gunmen participating in the funeral and went off by accident. Three of the dead died in the blast, while a fourth fell off a rooftop as he was watching the procession.

Canada bans truth-telling, goes after Mark Steyn

The Blood Runs Cold

Melanie Philips

* The inquisition is alive and well in Canuckistan: 


The lights are going out on liberal society – and it is the most liberal societies with their fingers on the ‘off’ switch. The thesis of Mark Steyn’s book America Alone, that Europe was succumbing to an Islamist takeover, has been proved spectacularly correct — in Canada, and with himself as the designated victim. The New York Post reports that both Steyn and Macleans magazine, which reprinted a chapter of his book, are to be hauled before two Canadian judicial panels to answer the charge that they have spread ‘hatred and contempt’ for Muslims. And what was the heinous view Steyn vouchsafed to occasion such a charge?

…the notion that Islamic culture is incompatible with Canada’s liberalized, Western civilization.

Well excuse me, but some of us were under the impression that a global war was currently being waged by a section of the Islamic world in order to write the truth of that assertion in blood.

The irony, of course, is that by this action Canada is thus demonstrating that if any culture is incompatible with liberalised western civilisation, it is clearly Canada’s. The idea that certain arguments must not be made, and that to do so is to find oneself arraigned before a judicial tribunal, is the very antithesis of a liberal society. It is a symptom of totalitarianism. It is also doubly ironic that it is the Islamic world, through the Canadian Islamic Congress, that is bringing this action — since in seeking to suppress the view that the Islamic world is incompatible with liberalism, it is demonstrating with the starkest possible clarity the truth of that proposition.

It is no accident that it is uber-‘liberal’ Canada, which worships at the shrine of human rights law, where this medieval inquisition is taking place. The fact that the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal and the Canadian Human Rights Commission are to conduct this oppressive hearing is grotesque but not in the least surprising. The belief fundamental to human wrongs law, that minorities are sacrosanct and that to criticise them is proof of rampant prejudice, is part of the mindset which has turned truth, morality and freedom inside out. If a writer who tells the truth about Islamists spreading hatred and contempt for the west is himself hauled before a court charged with spreading hatred and contempt by telling such a truth, then the Orwellian nightmare has well and truly arrived.

As I have said many times before, the real threat to civilisation comes not from acts of terror, appalling though these are; it comes from the fact that Islamists are progressively making slaves out of us in our own countries.

* Dhimmi Watch has more:

Two separate panels, the British Columbia Human Rights Tribunal and the Canadian Human Rights Commission, have agreed to hear the case. These bodies are empowered to hear and rule on cases of purported “hate speech.”

Of course, a ban on opinions – even disagreeable ones – is the very antithesis of the Western tradition of free speech and freedom of the press.

Headbanger Watch

Muslim Brotherhood Leader: “We’re Ready to Send 10,000 Fighters to Palestine”….

* The dark spot on the foreheads of the believers are marks of religious fervor, often seen on particularly pious adherents of the prophet, from banging the forehead on the floor during prayers.

* The story behind the stain 


( The leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, Muhammad Mahdi Akef, and Al-Qaeda’s second-in-command Ayman Al-Zawahiri both recently addressed the Palestinian Authority (PA) and its campaign against Israel. Akef pledged 10,000 fighters. Al-Zawahiri called on Hamas to cut ties with the PA’s Mahmoud Abbas and to fight for an international jihad movement.

Brotherhood ‘Must Support All the Forces of Resistance’

In a November 30 interview with the United Kingdom’s Al-Hiwar television, translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), Akef was asked, “During the Israeli aggression against Lebanon, you said that the Muslim Brotherhood was prepared to arm 10,000 young men, and to send them to Lebanon in order to support the resistance. Does this apply to Palestine too?
Akef replied, “This applies to any country under occupation. One of the principles of the Muslim Brotherhood is to rid the Arab and Islamic nation of any foreign rule. The Muslim Brotherhood must support all the forces of resistance in the Arab and Islamic world.”


Fashion and Faith Meet, on Foreheads of the Pious 


A man reading the Koran has a zebibah, seen as a sign of piety in Egypt.

CAIRO — There is a strong undercurrent of competition in Egypt these days, an unstated contest among people eager to prove just how religious they are. The field of battle is the street and the focus tends to be on appearance, as opposed to conviction.

It is not that the two are mutually exclusive, but they are not necessarily linked. As Egyptians increasingly emphasize Islam as the cornerstone of identity, there has been a growing emphasis on public displays of piety.

For women, that has rapidly translated into the nearly universal adoption of the hijab, a scarf fitted over the hair and ears and wrapped around the neck. For men, it is more and more popular to have a zebibah.

The zebibah, Arabic for raisin, is a dark circle of callused skin, or in some cases a protruding bump, between the hairline and the eyebrows. It emerges on the spot where worshipers press their foreheads into the ground during their daily prayers.

It may sometimes look like a painful wound, but in Egypt it is worn proudly, the way American professionals in the 1980s felt good about the dark circles under their eyes as a sign of long work hours and little sleep.

Two decades ago, Egypt was a Muslim country with a relatively secular style. Nationalism and Arabism had alternated places as the main element of identity. But today, Egypt, like much of the Arab Middle East, is experiencing the rise of Islam as the ideology of the day.

With that, religious symbols have become the fashion.

“The zebibah is a way to show how important religion is for us,” said Muhammad al-Bikali, a hairstylist in Cairo, in an interview last month. Mr. Bikali had a well-trimmed mustache and an ever-so-subtle brown spot just beneath his hairline. “It shows how religious we are. It is a mark from God.”

Turkey Watch:

Islamist Columnist: The Jew Is a Curse

Fahri Guven of the antisemitic Islamist Turkish daily Milli Gazete quoted in his column the following excerpts from a recently published book by M. Ertugrul Duzdag and Ali Ulvi Kurucu presenting them as historical truths that every Muslim must take into account:

“The Jew is a curse. If you enter a war against the Jew you end up fighting powerful nations behind him. If you try to make peace, years pass with no result. He lies 70 lies. It is not surprising that America supports Israel. It is because America is a province of Israel! Last century it was god-damned Britain that was under [Jew’s] command, this century they made the U.S. their servant…

Don’t forget the Russian revolution. The only non-Jew was Stalin but his wife was Jewish. Karl Marks was a Jewish psychopath. Behind the Free Mason’s that played a role in every revolution is Jewish power and intelligence. The Jew wants to rule the world, and step by step, he is advancing towards his goal of destroying faith, respect, love, honor, family values in the world.

“The Zionist organization, exaggerated what was done to the Jews at the time of Hitler; created a genocide balloon; blew into it hard enough so it could fly. He blew it to ten, fifty, hundred times more than what it really was. Then they [Jews] made this the subject of thousands of novels, plays and films.

“Who would have believed a hundred years ago? But here it is now; a Jewish state in the midst of Muslims like an abscess.”

Look at Armenia. This too will become tomorrow’s Israel. It was built by Christians to severe the ties between Turkey and the Muslim Turkish world and it will grow. It will be the roadblock between Turkey and Azarbaycan and the rest of the Turkic world.”

Who Hijacked The Religion of Hijackers?


Demented Sheik Muhammad Sa’id Ramadan Al-Buti masters the art of projection, accuses Jews of doing what soldiers of Allah are doing for 1400 years:


Muhammad Sa’id Ramadhan Al-Bouti: We have no interest in war. We all dream about peace. But it is Israel that fans the flames of war, like Lyndon LaRouche said yesterday. I would like to conclude my speech by quoting the will that Benjamin Franklin read out loud to his American “sons” – but the sons and grandsons have torn this will to shreds. In a speech that Benjamin Franklin delivered at the committee for the drafting of the U.S. constitution in 1789, he warned the committee, and the Americans in general, of the Jewish danger for America and the world. Let me read his speech to you, translated into Arabic.

There is a great danger threatening the United States of America. That danger is the Jewish danger. Gentlemen, in whichever land the Jews have settled, they have corrupted the morals, and lowered the level of commercial honesty. They always isolate themselves and never mix with others. Because of their feelings of persecution, they always attempt to choke the nations economically, like they did to Portugal and Spain. Since 1700 [sic.], they have been lamenting their fate. But gentlemen, if the world were to give them Palestine, which they claim along with other property, they would soon find a reason to start lamenting their fate once again. How come? Because they are vermin – he was referring to grave-dwellers who leave their tombs to suck the blood of others. They cannot live among their own kind. They live at the expense of Christians and others who do not belong to their race.

“Jews should be deported from the United States”

Here’s the clip from MEMRI

If they are not deported from the United States by the Constitution, within a century they will be streaming into our country in such large numbers that will enable them to rule the country, destroy us, and change the form of government for which we Americans shed our blood, and for which we have sacrificed our lives, our property, and our personal freedom. If we do not deport the Jews, our children will become, within 200 years, field laborers working to feed the Jews, while the Jews will stay in the banks, gleefully rubbing their hands. I warn you, gentlemen, that if you do not deport the Jews once and for all, your children and grandchildren will curse you in your graves. The values of the Jews are not the same as those of the Americans, and they will not be the same even if they live among us for ten generations. A leopard cannot change its spots. The Jews will pose a danger to this country, if they are allowed in. They will destroy our institutions.

I think I can declare this truth openly. I do not live in Germany or Europe, and so I do not need to whisper these things. We are in a country from which we want to declare who is the number one enemy lying in wait for world peace. Thank you, and may God be with you.

Jiziyah Extortion Watch: $7.4 billion raised for Palestinians


* Just about every day the genocidal ‘Palistanians’ set out to burn schools, all kinds of community buildings, kill Israeli’s any which way they can, kill each other (if they can’t get hold of a Jew) and go on mass-demonstrations. These demo’s are fun for the whole family, where armed thugs shoot holes in the ozone and ululating mobs scream ‘death to America,- death to the Jooozzzz…’

* Such efforts must be rewarded. The ‘international community’ has decided that the worlds most murderous, parasitic zombies should get everything they want and more:

Karin Laub has long been a bleeding heart for Pali-causes. She took it upon herself to write this peace for AP here:


PARIS – The world rallied to the support of the embattled Palestinian government Monday, pledging $7.4 billion in aid over the next three years at a donors’ conference — a sum that tops the Palestinians’ own expectations.

The real winner today is the Palestinian state,” French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner told a news conference after the gathering of nearly 90 countries and international organizations.

“We wanted $5.6 billion, we have $7.4 billion — not bad,” he said.

World leaders at the conference also urged Israel to ease restrictions on movement in the West Bank and Gaza to make a recovery of the Palestinian economy possible.

“Our feeling is great, this is generous. It is a vote of confidence for the program, and a sign of solidarity on the Palestinian question,” Palestinian Planning Minister Samir Abdullah told The Associated Press.

He confirmed the overall figure and said the pledges include $2.9 billion for 2008.


U.S Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice in a bilateral meeting with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. The Palestinian government needs quick cash…

Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice pledged $555 million for 2008. However, the money includes about $400 million that the White House announced but has not been approved by Congress.

For renewed peace efforts to succeed, she said, “the continued and unwavering support of the international community is absolutely vital. That is why we are here today, and not a moment too soon.”

Rice called the U.S. pledge “a significant increase” from earlier pledges.

The Palestinian Authority is experiencing a serious budgetary crisis,” Rice said. “This conference is literally the government’s last hope to avoid bankruptcy.”

* When were they ever not bankrupt?

Referring to renewed Middle East peace efforts stemming from the U.S.-sponsored conference in Annapolis, Md., last month, Rice said, “This is the most promising opportunity to seek peace that we have had in nearly seven years. And we need to seize it.”


* Only Rice can force ‘peace’ on a bunch of genocidal lunatics who live to wage war.

Palestinian Prime Minister Salam Fayyad said the pledges amounted to “an endorsement.”

He called it part of the process for “establishing an independent Palestine.”

The sum raised Monday was substantial even compared to the more than $10 billion that donor countries have given to the Palestinians in the past decade, according to the World Bank. Officials have said the Palestinians have received more international aid on a per capita basis than any other nation or group of people in the postwar period.

* What happened to the 10 billion the Pal’s got before? Gone? Dissappeared?

* Professional parasites and extortionists. Lets reward them! Lets give them a state!

From international Mideast envoy Tony Blair to French President Nicolas Sarkozy, participants called for urgent action, saying a new chance for an Israeli-Palestinian peace deal must not be missed. Peace talks resumed last week after seven years of diplomatic deadlock, and international aid is seen as key to making the process work.

* BLiar, forever deluded:

“We will not rest until we have that two-state solution a reality in this region of the world,” Blair, a co-sponsor of the conference, told the conference.

* BLiar obviously has a learning disability.

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said the donors must “invest now, invest generously, and remain steadfast in their financial commitments over the next 36 months.”

* Does Ban Ki-moon invest his own money in a black hole? If not, why does he ask the ‘donors’ to do so?
European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana said the conference was “very constructive” and had “created a momentum to continue the good start we had in Annapolis.”

The EU said it would give $650 million in 2008 and Norway pledged $140 million a year for three years. Britain, France and Germany announced a combined $1.08 billion for three years.

Western donors have urged Arab states to do more. Since 2002, Arab League members have been promising the Palestinians $55 million a month but have not always paid in full.

* If the rich Arabs have no money for their own people, why should the overtaxed Europeans pay for this rabble? Awright, got it: they’re dhimmi’s!

A senior Islamic Jihad commander was killed Monday evening after Israeli aircraft targeted his explosives-laden vehicle in Gaza City.

The bombing set off a huge blast heard around the city and killed two terrorists, including Majed Harazin, a senior Islamic Jihad commander in charge of the rocket squads responsible for the daily Kassam rocket attacks in the western Negev. A third occupant of the car was seriously wounded.

The Islamic Jihad terror group is responsible for many of the Kassam attacks on Israel and was behind the rocket bombardment on Sunday that wounded a two-year-old in Kibbutz Zikim.

Islamic Jihad supporters gathered around the morgue in Gaza and pledged revenge. “The blood of our comrades will be the fuel for the rockets that will bring death and destruction to the Zionists,” Islamic Jihad spokesman Abu Hamza said.
