“Allah-Balls”- Rage In Afghanistan

After Koran rage, cartoon rage, Pope rage and rage boy:

‘Blasphemous’ balls anger Afghans

The footballs angered residents in Khost

A demonstration has been held in south- east Afghanistan accusing US troops of insulting Islam after they distributed footballs bearing the name of Allah.

The balls showed the Saudi Arabian flag which features the Koranic declaration of faith.

The US military said the idea had been to give something for Afghan children to enjoy and they did not realise it would cause offence.

The footballs were dropped from a helicopter in Khost province.

Some displayed flags from countries all over the world, including Saudi Arabia, which features the shahada, one of the five pillars of Islam – the declaration of faith.

The balls were intended as a gift to Afghan children

_44079966_football203.jpg

The words, which include the name of Allah, are revered, and Muslims are very sensitive about where and how they can be used.

* A typical Al Bebeceera report: “Sensitive,” in this case, being defined as “prone to murderous rage.”

* To show how sensitive they are to this extreme sensitivity, the BBC sensitively blurs the offensive segment of the ball in their photograph.

* Sheik yer’mami is not that “sensitive”- Here is  a close-up of the dreaded ‘Allah Balls’:

Saudi Arabia has complained to the World Cup’s ruling body in the past about the use of its flag on footballs.

Mullahs in Afghanistan criticised the US forces for their insensitivity, and around 100 people held a demonstration in Khost.

Afghan MP Mirwais Yasini said: “To have a verse of the Koran on something you kick with your foot would be an insult in any Muslim country around the world.”

A spokeswoman for the US forces in Afghanistan said they made “significant efforts to work with local leaders, mullahs and elders to respect their culture” and distributing the footballs was an effort to give a gift the Afghan children would enjoy.

“Unfortunately,” she added, “there was something on those footballs we didn’t immediately understand to be offensive and we regret that as we do not want to offend.”

* That’s right. Americans don’t understand and don’t want to offend. Perhaps that’s the biggest problem of all…….

* There are some many here among us who would love nothing better than to kick the great balls of Allah…

Scores of Pakistani soldiers refuse to fight Islamic militants

By IANS

Islamabad, Aug 25 (DPA) Scores of Pakistani soldiers have deserted the security forces deployed in tribal areas bordering Afghanistan, mainly because they were not sure whether fighting against their ‘own people’ was morally right, media reports said Saturday.
I did not desert the force because I feared death, but I was not sure whether the fighting in tribal district Waziristan was Islamic or not,’ a soldier from paramilitary Frontier Corps (FC) told the Daily Times.
The man, who recently refused to serve in tribal areas, claimed the same question was haunting many other soldiers and the confusion was stopping them from ‘putting up a tough fight’ against the Taliban and Al Qaeda elements in the area.
Pro-Taliban militiamen pulled out of peace treaties with the government after troops stormed the Red Mosque in the capital on July 10, and launched a series of raids on security forces.
These retaliatory attacks in the border regions have killed more than 60 troopers and 250 militants, army spokesman Major General Waheed Arshad said.
He confirmed the desertions but insisted these should be ignored as ‘insignificant incidents’.
‘Small-scale desertion takes place in any force and in any country for one reason or another,’ Arshad told the newspaper.
However, six soldiers from only one suburb of Peshawar, the capital of North-West Frontier Province, have deserted the Frontier Corps.
The force is the first line of defence of around 90,000 troops deployed along the country’s western border against militants launching attacks at international forces in Afghanistan.

Germany: The Story of Sascha & Fatma

A TURKISH FAMILY’S DISINTEGRATION

European Dream Ends with Kidnapping, Prison

By Barbara Hardinghaus/Spiegel Online


Turkish-born Muharrem E. spent 34 years living the life of a respectable German in Munich. He was employed, raised his children and owned a condominium. Then his daughter fell in love with a German. The Turkish family kidnapped the boy, turning their story into a lesson about the limits of integration.

0102094734000.jpg

Couple Fatma and Sascha: With much of her family in jail, the pair will soon marry.

When the judge asks whether one of the defendants has anything to say, Muharrem E. stands up and says that he loves his daughter very much, despite everything.
His 20-year-old daughter Fatma is sitting on a plain metal chair. She has just testified as a witness, and in doing so she has accused her father, her mother and her brother, who are all sitting in the dock. When Fatma hears what her father has to say, she breaks down, starts crying, trembles and hides her eyes behind her black curls.

In courtroom B 309 of the Munich District Court, Muharrem E. and his daughter are separated by a space of only a few feet, by a small stretch of green carpeting and a wooden table. But what really separates the two is a fallacy:

That Muharrem E., who left his home in southeastern Anatolia 34 years ago to emigrate to Germany, ever believed that he had integrated into German life. Because in his head, he had never left Anatolia.

Muharrem E., who is wearing corduroy trousers, sits down and places his thin hands in his lap. When his daughter leaves the courtroom, she is accompanied by a witness assistant. Muharrem E. lowers his head. Fatma’s mother, Nimet, 54, lowers her head, and so does the brother. None of them looks at Fatma.

The family stands accused of having kidnapped a young German man one December morning at a Munich subway station, and of beating and threatening to kill him.

As they sit in the courtroom, they listen to what the judge has to say, and to the words of other witnesses, especially police officers, and of an expert witness. They listen to the story of their family being pieced together bit by bit, and the longer they listen to this story, the closer they come to understanding that it’s a true story.
They left their apartment on Dec. 13, the date of the alleged crime, a Wednesday, shortly before 6 a.m. It was still dark out. They climbed into their white Fiat Tipo and drove away from their neighborhood in western Munich. The men sat in front — Mehmet, the brother, and Muharrem E., the father — both wearing caps and black leather gloves. They drove across the city’s Central Ring and another eight kilometers until they had reached the subway station, where they waited.

They spotted Sascha as he walked along the sidewalk, passing the heavy traffic pushing its way into the city during morning rush hour. When Sascha reached the covered escalator, the two men grabbed him, first by his tracksuit and then by his right arm, and threw him onto his back.

“You know why,” said the father, Muharrem E, even though he and Sascha had never met before.

Sascha, a 19-year-old blonde, his hair cropped short, a boy who liked playing football and was learning the interior decorating trade, had just packed his tape measure, a pair of scissors and his lunch into his bag. As was usual at this time of the day, he was on his way from his apartment to school, wearing tennis shoes with loosely tied shoelaces. And yes, he knew what they meant.

He was a German who had been dating Fatma, the family’s youngest daughter, for two years. The couple had been living together for the past few weeks. Sascha felt the men’s hands on his back and saw the car, with the mother sitting in the back seat.

“I’m not getting in that car,” Sascha said.

Despite his protests, the men dragged him into the car and the father slapped him across the face twice. He then looked at the boy.

“Where is she?” he screamed.

Sascha knew that Fatma was at home in his apartment. She was cleaning the kitchen and getting ready for an appointment with a gynecologist. She was thinking about Sascha, and about the possibility that she could be pregnant.

Fatma knew that her parents had been trying to talk to her for some time, and that they had even threatened her. They wanted her to come home, but Fatma was no longer interested in going home.

“Where?” the father screamed again.

Sascha was silent. He was thinking of Fatma.

“Son of a bitch!” the father screamed at Sascha.

They wanted his mobile phone. Sascha, who was in tears by this point, kept insisting that he didn’t have a mobile phone, until they pulled it from his pocket. They wanted to call Fatma, hoping that she would answer the call if she recognized Sascha’s number on her screen.

They drove to a nearby athletic field in the Moosach neighborhood and parked the car. The brother turned off the engine, switched off the light and dialed Fatma’s number.

But, as coincidence would have it, Fatma didn’t answer. The men became furious. The mother sat in the back seat, saying nothing.
“I’d really like to kill you! The police won’t find anything, I’m wearing gloves,” the brother screamed.

“Give me back my daughter or I’ll kill you!” the father screamed.

* An honor killing in the making?

The family had already purchased one-way tickets from Munich to Istanbul, and one of them was issued in Fatma’s name. Their plan was to return to the home they had left decades earlier and take their daughter with them. To them it suddenly seemed to be the best solution.

Muharrem E. sat in the car for a while and considered his options. It became light outside and started to rain. Then he ordered his son to drive to Sascha’s apartment.

So much for integration. Read it all

Italians grow a spine: “No more Mosques, No more Musulmani”

ITALY: INTEGRATION WITH ARAB IMMIGRANTS DECLINES

* Not that integration ever happened in the first place: The soldiers of Allah invade the Bilad al Kufar in large numbers to conquer, not to assimilate or integrate. Talk to any Muhammedan and he will proudly tell you that he didn’t come to Europe/America or Australia to become European, American or Australian, but to make the nation state that granted him asylum, welfare, childcare, medicare and free housing ISLAMIC.

Because when it comes to the crux of it all, it is Islam and nothing but Islam that matters.

A whiff of anti-dhimmitude from bella Italia:

ANSAmed) – MILAN, JULY 11

There is more fear and distrust in Italian cities about immigrants identified as ‘Arab’, or those coming from Islamic cultures. With the drop of opinions in favour for granting these immigrants the right to vote in local elections, a strong rise in opposition to the construction of mosques, and a progressive decline of those who see favourably the formation of mixed couples. These are the results of a study carried out by the Milan Chamber of Commerce in Milan, Bologna, Rome, Naples and Palermo.

According to a representative sample of the population, the opinions in favour of the opening of a new mosque fell to 28% against 48% last year.

The motivations of the ‘no’ are various: according to 30% of those against “public money could be better spent”, 28% think that Islam is “a dangerous religion which does not allow integration”, 24% of those against clearly speak of mosques as “gatherings of terrorists.”

Italy gives Islam the boot:

italy1.jpg

The favouring to granting the right to vote in local administration for immigrants regularly present for 10 years is in vertical fall in the Italian cities: in 2005 a total 63% were in favour, last year 51%, in this year’s polls only 28%. As many as 60% of the people against the right to local elections vote explain their position with the fact that “they don’t have Italian citizenship yet”, 13% because the immigrants “are not part of our system and of our society”, 12% think that “they are not perfectly integrated even after 10 years.”

“The mosques are our barracks; the minarets are our bayonets. … “

Tayip Erdogan, Turkey

According to the research carried out on the occasion of the forthcoming Euro-Mediterranean conference of Milan, scheduled for Monday with the participation of Italian Prime Minister Romano Prodi, among others, the opinions in favour of the ‘mixed couples’ are also down: they were 72% in 2005, 68% last year, now they are 52%. Moreover, half of the polled by CedCamera do not point out what activity they would be ready to launch no matter if the person is Italian or Arab and 25% say they have major distrust compared to a year ago towards Muslim immigrants, against 60% who do not reveal a different attitude and 1% who say they have less distrust today as regards the ‘Arabs.’ The fear of attacks is more clear: passing near crowded public areas, such as train stations, underground stops or trade centres, 54% of residents of Milan, Bologna, Rome, Naples and Palermo say they feel less safe compared to a year ago, 22% feel the same fears and 22% did not answer. Only 0.4% of the residents of the five big cities say they feel more safe today compared to a year ago

Belgium: Trading The Burka For Easter Eggs & Christmas Trees

* The  Muhammedan idea of ‘Give & Take’- it doesn’t occur to them that they have been on the take since 1400 years, it’s a natural:

 Belgian Muslims Demand Ban on Easter Eggs

 Muslims in Belgium are angry (yes, really!) about a ban on the radical Islamic symbol of domination over women, the hijab, for employees of the city of Antwerp.

images10.jpg

So they’re demanding that the city also ban Christmas trees and Easter eggs.

burka1.jpg
ANTWERP – “If headscarves are banned for employees who work at the desk at city services in order to guarantee neutrality of services, then we demand that no Christmas trees be set up in city buildings and that no Easter eggs be given out.” Antwerp trade union representative Badia Miri said this on Wednesday in the Gazet van Antwerpen.

Miri is one of the seven Muslim women who were forced to remove their headscarves if they wanted to continue working at the desk. Three of the seven staff members of the city of Antwerp who wore headscarves agreed to stop wearing one. Different positions – not involving contact with the public – were found for the others. No one was dismissed. There is still opposition to the dress code however, which came into effect in March. The seven Muslim women are now urging that “neutrality of service provision be actually enforced.”

“The Antwerp city government says that neutrality is endangered if staff wear a cross or headscarf,” says Miri. “But in our experience action has only been taken against the Muslim women. If the city government is really concerned about neutrality, then Christmas trees and Easter eggs should no longer be allowed at work. We are asking that a contact point be set up to report all violations of the dress code.”

US-Paki-Relations: ‘9/11 brought Americans closer to Islam’

* The mind boggles. When you hear this kind of drivel you think ‘oh well, just another Muhammadan f*ckwit, they don’t know any better…’

mead_1.jpg

Then you look closer and you find out it comes from a Walter Russell Mead, “US foreign policy expert and Henry Kissinger Senior Fellow for the US Foreign Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations” you start wondering what’s going on: Is this guy for real, is he a closet Muslim, is he a straw man for Henry Kissinger’s law firm (yes, that same Henry Kissinger who couldn’t be part of the 9/11 commission because of ‘conflict of interest’) But what is with these guy’s? What are they hoping to gain by selling out to the enemy?

Tell US! We’d really like to know! Because we can’t make any sense of it:

‘9/11 brought Americans closer to Islam’

LAHORE: 9/11 has brought Americans closer to Islam, since the Americans started studying Islam after the bloody attacks and realised that Islam was a peaceful religion, said Walter Russell Mead on Saturday. The US foreign policy expert and Henry Kissinger Senior Fellow for the US Foreign Policy at the Council on Foreign Relations was speaking at Jamia Ashrafia on ‘The Influence of Religion on the US Foreign Policy’. Osama was not a true leader of Islam and his acts were against the teachings of Islam, he said. Mead said as far as war on terror was concerned, the American Muslims were not a problem, but a solution, since they could act as a bridge between Islam and West. Answering a question regarding the US support for military regime, he said there was not true democracy in Pakistan and the United States wanted to see Pakistan a truly democratic Muslim state with better socio-economic conditions. Religion was never a controversial issue in the world and religious education was being given everywhere, including the US, Mead said.

Pali Mass Murder Attack Thwarted

They were probably trying to kidnap more Israelis, or at least kill as many as possible: Israel thwarts Palestinian infiltration.

JERUSALEM – Under the cover of fog, two heavily armed Palestinian militants used a rope and ladder to scale a border wall Saturday and enter Israel from Gaza, attacking an army base with explosives and gunfire before they were tracked down and killed by Israeli troops. …

In Saturday’s early morning raid, the militants took advantage of darkness and weather conditions to slip into Israel near the Erez border crossing, said Col. Moni Katz, an Israeli commander. “There was thick fog that enabled us to see only a few meters (yards) ahead,” he said. Katz said four militants approached the wall, but only two of them climbed into Israel. Soldiers showed reporters the rope the attackers used to slide down.

Maj. Tal Lev-Ram, an Israeli army spokesman, said there was “an intention to carry out a large attack in Israeli territory.” He said the militants were armed “head to toe” with grenades and automatic weapons. …

In Gaza, three militant groups — the Popular Resistance Committees, the Democratic Front for the Liberation of Palestine and the Al Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades — claimed responsibility in a joint statement.

An Al Aqsa official confirmed the fog had created a “golden opportunity,” adding the border farming community of Netiv Haasara was the target. He was not authorized to talk to the media and spoke on condition of anonymity.

The groups also issued a farewell video made by the two dead attackers in which the men, wearing green and brown camouflage, read verses from the Quran and said the attack was for the sake of God and the Palestinian homeland. The men brandished automatic weapons, and flags of the three groups were in the background.

* All of it has nothing to do with Islam, of course.

 Here’s the report from the Pali-news-agency:

Israeli Soldiers Kill 2 Citizens in North Gaza Strip

RAMALLAH-BEIT LAHIYA, August 25, 2007 (WAFA)-Israeli Occupation Forces (IOF) killed on Saturday two citizens in the north of the Gaza Strip. Medical sources said.

Hospital sources at al-Shifa hospital told WAFA that Khader Okal 20, and Mohammed Saqer were killed as Israeli soldiers opened fire towards citizens’ houses in Beit Lahiya town, north of the Gaza Strip.

RoP blasts Hyderabad, kills 20

The Religion of Explosions prefers to strike when other religions celebrate:

From Caliphate News Network:

HYDERABAD, India (Reuters) — Two explosions within minutes killed at least 20 people in the southern Indian city of Hyderabad on Saturday, police said.

* At the time of this report the 3  penny whores from the wire services pretend to be totally clueless why, how and who did it, but since we can be 99.9 % sure that it wasn’t Hindu’s, Jooozzz or Christians one should take a look at the usual suspects…

“At least 20 people have been killed in the two blasts within a gap of 10 minutes,” a senior police officer told Reuters.

One blast was at the Lumbini amusement park where a laser show was taking place, and the officer said it could have been caused by an “improvised explosive device”.

Seven people were killed immediately in the park explosion, and two died later in hospital.

The same police officer said another explosion at a street-side eatery was caused by a exploding gas cylinder and killed 11 people.

A total of 50 people were wounded in the two explosions.

The NDTV news channel showed what appeared to be at least two dead bodies slumped under rows of blue plastic seating in the park, both with blood-soaked clothing.

In May, 11 people were killed in a bomb blast in a historic mosque in Hyderabad — a communally sensitive city — and five died when police fired on protesters later

Update: 30 killed, 60 wounded as terror strikes Hyderabad

Update: 6 hours later and no dementi yet from the ummah?

That’s strange. But instead we have this:

HuJI behind twin blasts in Hyderabad: Centre

NEW DELHI: Central security agencies on Saturday night said that banned Harkat-ul-Jehadi Islami militant outfit of Bangladesh was possibly behind the twin blast in Hyderabad in which 30 people were killed.

Sources in New Delhi said that there could be similarities between the explosives used in Mecca Masjid blast in Hyderabad in May this year and tonight’s explosion.

It was suspected that Shahid and Bilal, who were the masterminds of the Meacca Masjid blast, were also behind tonight’s explosion.

Shahid is reported to be in Karachi and is instrumental in bringing people for arms training from Hyderabad.

CBI has already procured a red-corner notice from Interpol against Shahid.

That will do it.

From the Times of India

Finally: Deadly blasts in southern India were acts of terror

Who would have guessed it?

arthyderabad03ap.jpg

More than 60 people were wounded, several critically, police said.

“But the carnage could have been worse.”

Authorities also found explosives at 16 other locations in and near Hyderabad, said Y.S.R. Reddy, chief minister of Andhra Pradesh state.

Security was beefed up at the airport and railroads after police said the almost simultaneous blasts were coordinated attacks.

“This is definitely terrorist activity,” Reddy said, urging everyone to stay calm. He scheduled a Cabinet meeting Sunday morning to discuss the incidents.

Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh issued a statement expressing deep concern over the violence. India is no stranger to terror bombings, and memories of another deadly blast are still fresh in Hyderabad. The city — one of India’s biggest — has a history of tension between Hindus and Muslims, Al Reuters reported.

Please note that Al Reuters and the stinkers from Caliphate News Network refuse to point to the obvious: ISLAMIC JIHAD TERROR

Religion of Peace Strikes Again in Thailand

Another woman killed and 12 more people wounded in the south Thailand jihad: One dead, 12 injured in Thai bomb attack.

BANGKOK (AFP) A Buddhist woman was killed and 12 others wounded, including six soldiers, when a roadside bomb exploded Saturday in Thailand’s restive Muslim-majority south, police said.

The seven-kilogram (15-pound) bomb went off in front of a grocery shop in Pattani, one of three insurgency-torn provinces bordering Malaysia, they said, adding the roadside bomb was detonated by remote control.

The bomb was aimed at patrolling soldiers who were providing security for Buddhist monks on their morning alms round, police said. Three monks were also wounded.

More than 2,500 people have been killed in the southern unrest since January 2004, with violence escalating despite a number of peace initiatives by the military-installed government.

Thai Jihad Continues, Today’s Atrocities:

From Iranian Press TV:

A bomb hidden under a bench in front of a food shop killed one person and wounded 10 others in Thailand’s restive Muslim south.
The remote-controlled device exploded Saturday, while Buddhist Thais were waiting to give food to monks in the town of Pattani in one of three southernmost provinces where more than 2,500 people have been killed in violence since 2004 police said.

Two civilians were seriously wounded while the shop owner was killed.

The other wounded included monks and soldiers escorting them.

Nobody claims responsibility for the daily gun or bomb attacks in the far south, annexed by predominately Buddhist Thailand a century ago.

Eighty percent of the local population are Muslim, ethnic Malay and do not speak Thai as a first language.

Any bets on who did this? Congregationalists? Zarathustrians? Overzealous Jehovah Witnesses?

Al Andaluz, a Jewish Filmmaker & Islam

From the ‘Whoring for Petro-dollars”-Department

‘The Golden Age” of Islamic Spain, where everyone “got along wonderfully under Islamic rule”- is NOT simply an Arabic fairytale: It is (and was) a nightmare for the dhimmies who were trying to survive under the rule of the moors. Curiously it is a myth that has been perpetuated and widely believed.

Now the Arabs have found a Jew to make a movie about how great it all was, and he’s telling us to all go back to sleep:

* People in the west talk of the clash of civilizations,” Out of Cordoba filmmaker Jacob Bender tells GulfNews.com. “They argue that the London, Madrid and New York attacks were the manifestations of a millennium-long conflict between the West and Islam. I believe there is a need for a different voice that would show that this idea has no basis in the actual history that was lived by Muslims, Christians and Jews for hundreds of years.”

All you really need to know is this:

Bender’s film is slated for 2008 distribution, and has most recently received funding from Saudi Arabian Prince Al Walid Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud’s Kingdom Foundation

Al Walid Bin Abdul Aziz Al Saud

Robert Spencer: Exhibit A, apparently, will be the Jewish philosopher Moses Maimonides, a resident of this paradisaical Al-Andalus. You can find in my book Religion of Peace? some quotations from Maimonides’ actual writings that I doubt will make it into this documentary, in which Maimonides complains of the brutality of the Muslims toward the Jews. As soon as I get close enough to a copy of the book I’ll post them.

* Those who know their history will not be deceived:

From The Real Tragedy of Andalusia:

Remember, my coreligionists, that on account of the vast number of our sins, God has hurled us in the midst of this people, the Arabs, who have persecuted us severely, and passed baneful and discriminatory legislation against us … Never did a nation molest, degrade, debase, and hate us as much as they…”
This is taken from Bat Ye’or’s The Dhimmi: Jews and Christians Under Islam pg 351. The expulsion Maimonides was victim to was the final of three major expulsions ordered by the Almoravids, the prior two taking place in 1106 and 1126. Reinhart Dozy, the Dutch Arab historian, chronicled the events leading up to and surrounding the mass deportations:
The Christians, or Mozarabs as they were called, suffered still more: the Fakihs and the populace fostered against them a yet more envenomed hatred. In most towns they formed but a small community: but in the province of Granada they were still numerous, and near the capital they possessed a beautiful church, which had been built about 600 C.E. by Gudila, a Gothic noble. This church was an offense to the Fakihs. Basing their action, probably, on the autority of the Khalif ‘Omar II … they issued a fetwa decreeing its demolition. Yusuf having given his approval, the sacred edifice was leveled with the ground (A.D. 1099). Other churches seem to have met with a similar fate, and the Fakihs treated the Mozarabs so oppressively that the latter at length appealed to Alfonso the Battler, King of Aragon, to deliver them from their intolerable burdens. Alfonso acceded to their request. In September, 1125, he set out with four thousand knights and their men at-arms, all sworn on the Gospels not the desert one another. Alfonso, did not however, achieve the results he aimed at … the ultimate object of the expedition had been the capture of Granada, and this was not effected. Upon the withdrawal of the Aragonese army, the Moslems cruelly avenged themselves on the Mozarabs. Ten thousand of the Christians were already out of their reach, for knowing the fate in store for them they had obtained permission from Alfonso to settle in his territories; but many who remained were deprived of their property, maltreated in endless ways, thrown into prision or put to death. The majority, however, were transported to Africa, and endured terrible sufferings, ultimately settling in the vicinity of Saleh and Mequinez (A.D. 1126). This deportation was carried out by virtue of a decree which the Kady Ibn Rushd – grandfathter of the famous Averroes – had procured from Ali. Eleven years later a second expulsion of the Mozarabs took place, and very few were left in Andalusia.
From Spanish Islam, pp 721-722.
As historian Richard Fletcher puts it, “The witness of those who lived through the horrors of the Berber conquest, of the Andalusian fitnah in the early eleventh century, of the Almoravid invasion – to mention only a few disruptive episodes – must give it the lie … Beauty? Yes, a fair amount of it. Tolerance? Ask the Jews of Grenada who were massacred in 1066, or the Christians who were deported by the Almoravids to Morocco in 1126 (like the Moriscos five centuries later).” Al-Andalus “was not a tolerant and enlightened society even in its most cultivated epoch.”

* The Sauds must be laughing their butts off just thinking how the hated Jooozzz are doing their bidding in presenting taqqiya to the western public.

* Check out Jacob Bender

* Old Jacob (mind-) Bender is a veteran ‘Interfaith’-schlock-peddler who has been on the Saudi payroll for a long time:

“After 9/11 I felt an urge to respond to the attacks as well as to the growing evidence of Islamophobia and attacks upon Muslims with a film that would talk about the coexistence between Judaism, Christianity and Islam,” Bender told Gulf News.

“Now that in the West some people talk of the clash of civilisations and argue that the London, Madrid and New York attacks were the manifestations of a millennium-long conflict between the West and Islam, I believe there is a need for a different voice that would show that this idea has no basis in the actual history that was lived by Muslims, Christians and Jews for hundreds of years.”

Bender, a Jewish interfaith activist, highlights in his documentary how the three religions at the time of Averroes and Maymonides shared medical knowledge, astronomy, mathematics, history and most of all of religion.

Schlock & Crock from a Jewicidal Whore for the Wahabites

p.130-131, from Spencer’s Religion of Peace:

In 1291 Isaac ben Samuel, a noted Kabbalist and Palestinian Jew, sought refuge in a Christian-controlled area of Spain after the collapse of the last Crusader kingdom in the Levant. He explained, “For in the eyes of the Muslims, the children of Israel are as open to abuse as an unprotected field. Even in their law and statutes they rule that the testimony of a Muslim is always to be believed against that of a Jew. For this reason our rabbis of blessed memory have said, ‘Rather beneath the yoke of Edom [Christendom] than that of Ishmael [Islam].’ They [the rabbis] plead for mercy before the Holy One, Blessed be He, saying, ‘Master of the World, either let us live beneath Thy shadow or else beneath that of the children of Edom’ (Talmud, Gittin 17a).”
Ben Samuel’s choice of Christian Spain is paradoxical, as Muslim Spain was supposed to have been a famous exception to the oppression of Jews that prevailed elsewhere among both Muslims and Christians. Islamic apologist Karen Armstrong enunciates the common wisdom when she states that “until 1492, Jews and Christians lived peaceably and productively together in Muslim Spain — a coexistence that was impossible elsewhere in Europe.” Even the U.S. State Department has proclaimed that “during the Islamic period in Spain, Jews, Christians, and Muslims lived together in peace and mutual respect, creating a diverse society in which bibrant exchanges of ideas took place.”
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.”

* Abu Hamza, self-styled mufti of Londonistan, also known as Abu Hook, is more truthful. But we like honest Muhammedans, don’t we?

“If a kafir (non-Muslim) is going into a Muslim country and he is walking by, he is like a cow. Anyone can take him. That is the Islamic rule. If Muslims cannot take them, you know, and sell them in the market, then kill them. It is ok”.

US helps Saudis train oil security force: report

AFP: US defence giant Lockheed Martin is reportedly training thousands of recruits for a special force designed to protect Saudi Arabia’s oil facilities from attack.

Saudi authorities have recruited around 5,000 members of the Facilities Security Force and plan to raise the number to 8,000-10,000 over the next two years as an interim target, the Nicosia-based Middle East Economic Survey said.

The plan to set up a 35,000-strong force to guard oil and other vital installations was announced in July by Interior Minister Prince Nayef bin Abdul Aziz as the oil powerhouse continues to battle suspected Al-Qaeda militants.

The Meltdown of Willie Clitman and ‘the License to kill’

Pamela rips him to shreds, don’t miss this one!

Seeing is believing:

Michael Isikoff, the reporter who broke the Monica Lewinsky story only to have his editors at Newsweek spike the story, has caught Bill Clinton in another lie: He never authorized the killing of Osama bin Laden.

Citing a recent CIA inspector general report, Isikoff and Mark Hosenball reported:

The report also criticized intelligence problems when Bill Clinton was president, detailing political and legal “constraints” agency officials felt in the late 1990s. In September 2006, during a famous encounter with Fox News anchor Wallace, Clinton erupted in anger and waived his finger when asked about whether his administration had done enough to get bin Laden. “What did I do? What did I do?” Clinton said at one point. “I worked hard to try to kill him. I authorized a finding for the CIA to kill him. We contracted with people to kill him. I got closer to killing him than anybody has gotten since.”

Bwahahahahahhahahaha

Restoring the revolution, taking away civil liberties

THE head of Iran’s judiciary is a confident man. Despite foreign attempts at slander, Ayatollah Mahmud Hashemi Shahrudi recently declared, his country has presented a fine image to the world of Islamic law at work.

If news were limited to such mercies as the recent release, on bail, of Haleh Esfandiari, a 67-year-old Iranian-American academic, after six months in jail on charges of espionage, or the amnesty granted to 4,000 other prisoners on the occasion of the birthday on August 20th of Imam Hussein, a revered Shia martyr, Mr Shahrudi’s confidence might be justified. But these welcome developments come against a darkening backdrop, as the administration of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad intensifies a campaign to reimpose the moral fervour, and xenophobic zeal, of the 1979 Islamic revolution’s early years.

The rest of the world may be more concerned about Iran’s nuclear ambitions. But for many Iranians, the issue that has begun to outweigh other troubles, such as poverty, unemployment and the danger of war with America, is human rights.

Iran’s hangmen work overtime to silence opposition


By Con Coughlin / Telegraph UK

Stonings, hangings, floggings, purges. President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad might claim that United Nations sanctions can’t hurt his country, but that is not how it feels for Iran’s long-suffering population which now finds itself on the receiving end of one of the most brutal purges witnessed since the 1979 Islamic revolution.

The most visible manifestation of the new oppression sweeping Iran has been the wave of public executions and floggings carried out in Teheran and provincial capitals over recent weeks in a blatant attempt by the regime to intimidate political opponents. The official government line is that the punishments are part of its “Plan to Enforce Moral Behaviour”.

It’s the same kind of argument that was used immediately after Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini took control to purge the country of its prosperous, secular middle class and secure his hold on power. Now Mr Ahmadinejad is adopting similar tactics in a desperate attempt to keep his embattled regime in power.
