Born to Rock:
Palestinians were out in the streets today, demanding the release of thousands of terrorists in exchange for kidnapped IDF soldier Gilad Shalit.
Now why in the world would the brutal Israelis put a nice young man like this in prison?
The media is eating it up like only true believers do…
I have a better idea: Lets give these wonderful people a state and let our taxpayers foot the bill!
BERLIN, April 17, 2007 (UPI) — Concerns are rising about the growing number of terror threats against Germany, formerly a country spared from Islamist violence. Ever since the abduction of two Germans in Baghdad, the Islamists have stepped up the rhetorical warfare against Berlin.
* Obviously, it won’t stop there.
In a video message to the German TV show “Spiegel TV,” the Global Islamic Media Front, or GIMF — a German language Web site that has in the past posted Islamist videos — said that more Germans will be abducted in the future. The GIMF said it was relaying the message in the name of the kidnappers of the two German hostages in Iraq.
The kidnappers wanted to tell Berlin that “even if the two Germans are killed, Germans will always be targets for kidnappings all over the world until the German government pulls its troops out (of Afghanistan),” German news magazine Der Spiegel quoted from the message.
It remains unclear whether the Web site hosts are really in contact with the kidnappers; they have in the past posted and edited the kidnappers’ video messages to the government.
Berlin-born Hannelore Kraus, 61, and her son were snatched in early February by armed men who entered their home in Baghdad, where the woman has lived since she had married an Iraqi professor. A crisis team has been set up in the German Foreign Ministry to get the pair released. Already, two ultimatums threatening their lives have run out.
Could be a literary reference, but unsurprisingly there are alternate interpretations. Ismail (Abraham) in Islamic tradition was going to use an ax to sacrifice his son to Allah. The inscription could be a reference to him being an instrument of God’s will. His suicide note did rail against “debauchery” which would seem an odd thing for a young man to be complaining about unless his objections were religious in nature.
Steve Decatur is sure the killer was a Muslim convert. There is talk that the reference is to a lesser work of James Fenimore Cooper.
Debbie Schlussel isn’t buying the literary connection. I’m not sure I do either, given his bizarre behavior. Was he crazy enough to up and decide he was “doing God’s work?” And if he was, in today’s climate is Islamic iconography more appealing than Christian iconography to the disgruntled would be killer?
In any case he was a terrorist. We shall see. Sooner or later the truth happens to seep through…
This Mostafa Chenid is the successor to Abu Laban, the whining scumbag who was one of the main-instigators behind the cartoon-riots. But he is already making a name for himself as another misogynistic asshole, and we have already covered him previously. But now he said it again in an interview with the Jyllands Posten.
That’s right: The paper that printed the cartoons: “All Women Should Wear a Veil”
Â From the Brussels Journal
Mostafa Chendid, the new leader of the Danish Islamic Society, says that not just Muslim women but all women should wear repressive, ugly clothingâ€”because if they don’t, five to ten percent of men will lose control and fly into a rape frenzy: “All Women Should Wear A Veil”.
This Mostafe is considered to be the successor of Ahmad Abu Laban, one of the imams who was involved in the affair around the notorious Danish cartoons. Ahmad Abu Laban was one of the leaders of the delegation that traveled around the Middle East and that had added three drawings to the original cartoons in its report to Â«give a clearer picture of the climate against Muslims in DenmarkÂ». Mostafa Chendid is doing well to become just as famous as his predecessor, and the interview that he recently gave to the Danish weekly newspaper Weekendavisen certainly isn’t going to reduce the controversy around his person.
Earlier he had already succeeded to draw attention to himself by saying, on International Women’s Day, to Jyllands-Posten (that’s right: the newspaper with the cartoons) that not only Muslim women, but all other women too, should wear a veil. Of course, this resulted in a lot of reactions, and as a matter of fact his remarks in Jyllands-Posten were the direct reason for the interview with Weekendavisen, where he repeated them once more and commented on them. He said for example that wearing the veil is a woman’s duty to God, because that is what the Koran says. However, that doesn’t mean that he thinks that a woman with a veil is a better person than a woman without a veil.
According to him the veil also serves as a signal: women with a veil are Â«not for saleÂ». Moreover, the veil protects against rapes, he says: in the US for example, every half minute a woman is raped, and according to him that is because women continuously tempt men by going onto the streets without a veil. Maybe not all men have a problem to control themselves when they see a woman without a veil, and perhaps there is only a problem with five to ten per cent of the men, but he says that is nevertheless enough for all women to wear the veil.
Charles from LGF predicted it a week ago:
Last Sunday, while noting the report that a Palestinian group claimed to have murdered BBC reporter Alan Johnston, we made this prediction:
If Johnston was indeed murdered by his kidnappers, rather than reconsider their support for a murderous death cult society, British journalists will find a way to blame it on Israel.
British journalist Alan Hart is the first out of the gate: If Alan Johnston is dead, who, really, was responsible?
On Count One, Alan was not only the BBC’s man, he was the only permanent foreign correspondent in Gaza. He was, in short, the best and most informed provider of news about the Palestinian side of the story; a story which, in many of its details, is an embarrassment to Israel and those governments, most notably the Bush and Blair regimes, which support Israel’s efforts to break the will of the Palestinians to continue their struggle for an acceptable minimum of justice.
On Count Two, and if he has been murdered, Alan’s death, if it could be blamed on a Palestinian or a pro-Palestinian Arab and/or other Islamist group, would be a huge political setback for the legitimacy of the Palestinian struggle and the present leadership of it. (The Al Qaeda franchise would not give a damn about harming the Palestinian cause).
There is a case for saying (repeat a case) that the party with most to gain from Alan Johnston’s permanent disappearance was Israel. It would not be the first time that Israeli agents had dressed as Arabs to make a hit.
If Alan Johnston is dead, it’s my hope that the BBC at executive management level will rise above its fear of offending Zionism too much and allow its reporters (Frank Gardner and Jeremy Bowen are second to none) to make a full, thorough and honest investigation.
No doubt we can nominate Alan Hart for the Asshole of the Month award
If any further proof was needed of the British media’s inability to deal with Israel in an objective and fair manner, it arrived on 13 April as the UK’s National Union of Journalists (NUJ) voted at its annual meeting for a boycott of Israeli goods as part of a protest against last year’s Lebanon war.
By a vote of 66 to 54, theÂ delegates called for “a boycott of Israeli goods similar to those boycotts in the struggles against apartheid South Africa led by trade unions, and [for] the [Trades Union Congress] to demand sanctions be imposed on Israel by the British government.”
Tom Gross points out:
Just to show what disregard British (and indeed most European) journalists have for the truth about Israel “The motion called for the end of Israeli aggression in Gaza.” In case they haven’t noticed, Israel withdrew from Gaza in the summer of 2005, and indeed is maintaining a ceasefire even while Palestinian rockets continue to be fired from Gaza on an almost daily basis into Israel, aimed at civilians.
The Daily Telegraph’s Washington correspondent Toby Harnden called the vote “inane, ineffectual, counter-productive and insulting to the intelligence”, commenting:
The “slaughter of civilians” by Israel is condemned (no mention of suicide bombings or human rights abuses by Palestinian militias, needless to say), as is the “savage, pre-planned attack on Lebanon by Israel” and “continued attacks inside Lebanon following the defeat of its army by Hezbollah”.
What kind of language is this? It is tendentious and politically-loaded propaganda that would be rightly edited out of any news story written in a newspaper that had any pretensions of fairness. Israel “defeated” by Hezbollah? That is at best debatable – it’s the kind of wording smacks of a juvenile combination of unedifying gloating and wishful thinking. Pali-propaganda pure.
Israel’s “savage, pre-planned attack” on Lebanon? Er, am I missing something or wasn’t last summer’s conflictÂ sparked by Hezbollah firing rockets and mortars at Israeli border villages and kidnapping two Israeli soldiers (who still have not been released) and killing three other troops?
NUJ member Craig McGintyÂ simply wonders “how boycotting any nation’s goods, whether it’s Israel, China or Umpah Lumpah Land will help improve the lot of both staff and freelance journalists.”
While we condemn this ridiculous and self-defeating display of anti-Israel bias by the NUJ, we also recognize that this boycott was voted on by a very small number of people and potentially against the wishes of many ordinary NUJ members. The most effective way of overturning this motion and boycott is from within the NUJ itself. We therefore urge those members of the union who possess a conscience to take action and register their protests to the NUJ.
If this boycott is allowed to stand, it will be impossible to treat any British journalism from Israel or the Palestinian territories seriously.
A few days ago we already reported that the Muhammedans of the Ahmadiyya community, which intends to build more than 100 mosques in Germany, are openly claiming that the consumption of pork makes people homosexual. The Ahmadiyya Muslim community, which is currently building a mosque in Berlin-Pankow, has now confirmed this controversial claim.
Titled ‘Fortunate Pig or Poor Swine?’ a young member of the cult writes the following in the popular Ahmadiyya- youth-magazine, which can also be found on the internet:
“Humans are what they eat, and this aphorism relates to the nexus between the consumption of Pork and the morality of humans, because a shameless animal like swine transmits certain patterns of behavior to the consumer..’
This statement, whichÂ recentlyÂ became public knowledge and should be of interest to scientists, was now reconfirmed by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat (AMU)
Here is the full text in German; Homosexuals are up in arms:
Ahmadiyya-Muslime verunglimpfen Homosexuelle
AnhÃ¤nger schreibt: Schweinefleisch macht schwul. GemeindefÃ¼hrung bekrÃ¤ftigt diese Aussage
Die Ahmadiyya-Muslim-Gemeinschaft, die derzeit in Pankow eine Moschee baut, hat ihre umstrittenen Aussagen zum angeblichen Zusammenhang zwischen dem nach islamischem Recht verbotenen Verzehr von Schweinefleisch und HomosexualitÃ¤t bekrÃ¤ftigt.
Unter dem Titel â€žGlÃ¼cksschwein oder arme Sau?“ hatte sich ein junges Gemeindemitglied im Jugendjournal der Gemeinde darÃ¼ber ausgelassen. Nach dem Satz â€žDer Mensch ist, was er isst“, heiÃŸt es in dem auch auf den Internetseiten der Gemeinde verbreiteten Text: â€žAuch lÃ¤sst sich dieser Aphorismus beziehen auf die Auswirkungen von Schweinefleischverzehr auf das menschliche Moralverhalten, denn ein schamloses Tier wie das Schwein prÃ¤gt oder unterstÃ¼tzt die AusprÃ¤gung gewisser Verhaltensweisen des Konsumenten.“ Das habe bereits das 2003 verstorbene Oberhaupt der Gemeinde, Hazrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad, gesagt, indem er â€žden zunehmenden Hang zur HomosexualitÃ¤t mit dem Schweinefleischverzehr in unserer Gesellschaft in Verbindung setzt“.
Nachdem diese Aussagen kÃ¼rzlich bekannt wurden und EmpÃ¶rung nicht nur beim Schwulen- und Lesbenverband auslÃ¶sten, bekrÃ¤ftigte die von anderen muslimischen Gruppen isolierte Gemeinde jetzt ihre Position. â€žDie Ahmadiyya Muslim Jamaat (AMJ) stimmt den AusfÃ¼hrungen der Verfasserin des Artikels im Allgemeinen zu“, heiÃŸt es in einer Stellungnahme der GemeindefÃ¼hrung in Frankfurt am Main fÃ¼r den Tagesspiegel.
Eine Beleidigung nichtmuslimischer Menschen oder homosexuellenfeindliche Diskriminierung will die Religionsgemeinschaft in den Ã„uÃŸerungen nicht erkennen. Im Denken der Ahmadiyya-Gemeinde sei â€žkein Raum fÃ¼r Hass oder Verfolgung gegen andere aufgrund ihrer persÃ¶nlichen Neigungen“, teilt die GemeindefÃ¼hrung mit. Der umstrittene Artikel â€žsollte keinen Anlass fÃ¼r Sorge dafÃ¼r bieten, dass er zum Hass gegen bestimmte gesellschaftliche Gruppen anstachelt“.
FÃ¼r kritische Betrachter der Ahmadiyya-Gruppierung, die in Berlin nach eigenen Angaben 200 Mitglieder hat, passen die abfÃ¤lligen Bemerkungen Ã¼ber Homosexuelle ins Bild. So bescheinigt eine kÃ¼rzlich verÃ¶ffentlichte Studie der Evangelischen Zentralstelle fÃ¼r Weltanschauungsfragen der Ahmadiyya-Muslim-Gemeinschaft ein â€žultraorthodoxes bis fundamentalistisches KoranverstÃ¤ndnis“. Themen wie SexualitÃ¤t und die Beziehungen zwischen den Geschlechtern seien von einer â€žrigiden Moral“ geprÃ¤gt, die sich auch in mangelnder Gleichberechtigung von Frauen sowie der Erlaubnis â€žleichter ZÃ¼chtigung“ von Ehefrauen Ã¤uÃŸere. Die westliche Gesellschaft werde von der einst in Nordindien gegrÃ¼ndeten Ahmadiyya-Gemeinde als â€žsexbesessen und verderbt“ wahrgenommen. Das Fazit der evangelischen Expertise: â€žDie Ahmadiyya ist religiÃ¶s fundamentalistisch.“ Die Position der Gruppierung zu Menschenrechten sei geeignet, â€žZweifel an ihrer Rechtstreue zu wecken“.
Die GemeindefÃ¼hrung weist diese EinschÃ¤tzung zurÃ¼ck und betont immer wieder, dass sie sich als â€žfriedfertige islamische Reformgemeinde“ betrachtet. Die zentralen Anliegen der Ahmadiyya-Muslim-Gemeinde, die in Deutschland nach eigenen Angaben 30 000 Mitglieder zÃ¤hlt, seien â€žToleranz und Frieden“.

Four killed in southern Thailand
Separatist (??? again???) militants have killed four people in attacks across Thailand’s restive south, police said Monday, while five schools were set ablaze in the region.
* If I ever catch one of those ‘separatist militants in the restive south’ I’m gonna fart, I promise!
One army ranger and one militant were killed in Narathiwat province late Sunday when Islamic insurgents raided an army base.
Local police said about 10 militants opened fire on the base where 100 policemen and soldiers were stationed. Three policemen were also injured in the 20-minute firefight between the two sides.
All the militants escaped and took the body of the dead insurgent with them, police said.
On Monday in nearby Yala province, a Muslim district mayor was shot dead in front of his house by suspected militants. Another Muslim man was killed in a drive-by shooting in front of a tea shop two kilometres (1.2 miles) away.
Five schools, one health office and a teacher’s house were also set on fire in Pattani province. No one was injured.
Militants, who are battling for a separate Muslim state in Thailand’s southernmost region, frequently stage arson attacks on schools, which are seen as representing the central Buddhist state.
More than 2,000 people have been killed in the Muslim-majority provinces of Yala, Narathiwat and Pattani since the latest separatist insurgency broke out in January 2004.
Violence has escalated in the past six months despite moves by the military-backed government to bring peace to the region bordering Malaysia.
* Right. Keep calling them ‘militants’ and ‘separatists’ and throw some origami at them. It might just go away, magically…
Southeast Asian militant network Jemaah Islamiah has formed an assassination squad to attack police, prosecutors and judges, a Singapore newspaper reported yesterday, citing an Indonesian official.
Ansyaad Mbai, head of the anti-terrorism division at Indonesia’s Security Ministry, said the group planned to target a list of “infidels” including the rector of a Christian university and an official at the Attorney-General’s Office in central Java, the Straits Times reported.
The setting up of the assassination squad showed the al-Qa’ida-linked terror network wanted to get into the complete spectrum of terrorist attacks, instead of concentrating on deadly bombings and suicide strikes, Rohan Gunaratna, head of the Singapore-based International Centre for Political Violence and Terrorism Research, told the newspaper.
Officials uncovered the assassination plans after a series of raids in Java last month, when investigators found charts detailing Jemaah Islamiah’s new structure, as well as a large cache of arms including M-16 rifles.
Wanted list of Allah’s favorite Assassins
“This has never happened before. These M-16s are not hidden in the forests but are carried around. They are well-prepared to use the rifles in pursuit of a target,” Mr Mbai was quoted as saying, adding that the group was targeting both locals and foreigners.
The strength of the assassination squad was not known, but the paper said it might be part of a new military wing formed by Abu Dujana, a senior Jemaah Islamiah operative who has taken over as the group’s leader, security officials say.
Jemaah Islamiah has been blamed for several deadly attacks in Indonesia, including the 2002 Bali bombing that killed more than 200 people, including 88 Australians.
Founded about 1993, Jemaah Islamiah has a goal of creating an Islamic superstate across the southeast Asian region.
