“My Allah is better than yours:” Bagdad Mosque Bombing Kills 78

A truck bomb struck a Shiite mosque Tuesday in central Baghdad, killing 78 people and wounding more than 200, even as about 10,000 U.S. soldiers northeast of the capital used heavily armored Stryker and Bradley fighting vehicles to battle their way into an al-Qaida sanctuary.

The troops, under cover of attack helicopters, killed at least 22 insurgents in the offensive, the U.S. military said.

The thunderous explosion at the Khulani mosque in the capital’s busy commercial area of Sinak sent smoke billowing over concrete buildings, nearly a week after a bombing brought down the twin minarets of a revered Shiite shrine in the northern city of Samarra and two days after officials lifted a curfew aimed at preventing retaliatory violence from that attack.

Gunfire erupted after the blast, which police said occurred in a parking lot near the mosque, causing the outer wall and a building just inside it to crumble.

Police and hospital officials, speaking on condition of anonymity because they feared retribution, said at least 78 people were killed and 218 were wounded, adding that the toll could rise as bodies were pulled from the debris.

One officer said the explosives-packed truck was loaded with fans and air coolers to avoid arousing the suspicions of security forces guarding the surrounding area, which is full of shops selling electrical appliances.

Six of those killed lived in a house behind the mosque that also collapsed, the officer said, adding that 20 cars were burned and 25 shops were damaged.

The mosque’s imam, Sheik Saleh al-Haidari, said it was a truck bomb and the explosion hit worshippers as they left afternoon prayers.

“This attack was planned and carried out by sick souls, damaging the mosque’s outer wall and collapsing my office and the room above it,” al-Haidari told The Associated Press by telephone.

“There are number of bodies being pulled from the rubble and a number of worshippers were killed or injured,” he said, adding that he was not inside the mosque when the blast occurred.

The Khulani mosque is named after a revered Shiite figure who, according to Shiite tradition, was one of four deputies anointed by the Imam Mohammed al-Mahdi, who disappeared in the 9th century and will return to restore justice to humanity.


Counteract the hatred and lies of radical Islam

An Urgent Message

From the Desk of David Horowitz

Winds of Jihad just received this wonderful new video from David Horowitz that exposes the lies and the Arab propaganda that Israel is -somehow- to blame for the suffering in the Middle East. The link to the video is here. It should be seen by all people of good will. We urge you to see this powerful refutation of a radical Islamist lie that is central to their campaign of hatred and destruction – the lie that Israel is to blame for the suffering in the Middle East.


In fact Hamas, which is the elected government in “Palestine” is a terrorist organization with a Nazi-like ideology whose goal is the extermination of the Jews and the destruction of the United States.

It is an urgent matter to counteract the hatred and lies of radical Islam. Their lies are a formidable weapon in their jihad to defeat the West and to impose Islam across the globe. Their lies are used to justify their killing of innocent men, women and children, and their drive to take over country after country, to radicalize moderate Muslims, and to impose Sharia (Muslim) law on people everywhere.

They lie about America. But most of all they lie about Israel, telling the world that Israel is the aggressor in the Middle East, and especially that their grievances would end if Israel didn’t exist.

Most Americans know that when Osama bin Laden says America is making war on Islam he is lying. When radical Islamists say that 9/11 was our fault, most Americans know they are lying.

But when they say that Israel stole land from the Palestinians . . . that Israel routinely brutalizes Palestinian civilians…that Israel initiates aggression against its neighbors – many Americans do not know they are lying.

An astonishing number of academics believe their lies. Israel-hating is so common at colleges and universities that it is taken for granted. On some campuses Muslim student groups host virulently anti-Israel and anti-Semitic speakers, disrupt Jewish and pro-Israel activities, and even physically intimidate Jewish students, without a peep from the administration.

I want to get the truth about Israel out to millions of Americans to counteract the lies of the radical Islamists, by emailing the What Really Happened in the Middle East video, placing the link on web sites, and publicizing it through my speeches and interviews.

We are going to focus on reaching college students, but we also want to reach other Americans, including the media and decision-makers at every level.

Fitzgerald: Funding Hamas, funding Fatah

What is infuriating is not that Saudi Arabia, our mortal enemy, is funding Hamas, but that it is not being asked to fund Fatah as well. It is absurd that the American government, that any Infidel government, that any Infidel taxpayers are being forced by their governments anywhere to support Muslims in the style to which they have grown accustomed — to wit, living on the disguised Jizyah of foreign aid from Infidels. They consider themselves entitled to this even though they remain implacably committed to the Islamic view of Infidels and, certainly in the case of the “Palestinian” Arabs of Fatah, determined to make life hell for the Israelis.

They intend to keep every kind of economic, diplomatic, and military pressure on (including terrorism, which is hardly limited to Hamas but was copyrighted by the “Palestine Authority’s” presiding genius, Yassir Arafat, and continues today with such organizations, having nothing to do with Hamas and everything to do with Fatah, as the redundantly-named Islamic Jihad and the Al-Aksa Martyr’s Brigade).

The Infinite Wisdom of our Great Western Leaders


From CNN: U.S. offers aid to Abbas-led Palestinian government.

The United States joined the European Union on Monday in announcing its willingness to resume hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to the new Palestinian government led by President Mahmoud Abbas.
The commitment of financial and political support follows last week’s gunbattles between rival Palestinian factions that led to Hamas routing Fatah forces in Gaza loyal to Abbas and the crumbling of a Fatah-Hamas unity government.

In response, Abbas declared a state of emergency and appointed a new Cabinet of political independents based in the West Bank.

U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said she spoke by phone with newly appointed Prime Minister Salam Fayyad on Monday. “I told him that the United States would resume full assistance to the Palestinian government and normal government-to-government contacts,” Rice said.

Rice added that the United States will give up to $86 million to help build the government infrastructure, such as improving roads and providing drinking water. …

President Bush called Abbas on Monday and pledged his support to the president and “those Palestinian moderates who are working to better the lives of Palestinians and work toward a Palestinian state living side by side in peace with Israel,” National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said.

Palestinian moderates”? It was Fatah’s Abbas who refused to disarm Palestinian militant groups, including Hamas and the “armed wing” of his own party, even after continued terrorist attacks. It was Fatah terrorists who claimed joint responsibility with Hamas for the suicide-bombing mother who murdered four people. Abbas has called Israel the “Zionist enemy”. It is Fatah whose name means “conquest” and whose logo still includes an AK-47 and a grenade.

There’s so little difference between Hamas and Fatah that you can barely tell them apart:


Fatah photo and Hamas photo.


Fatah Logo

Condi/Bush & Euro-dhimmies stuck on stupid:


“We will not leave 1.5 million Palestinians at the hands of terrorist organizations,” US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said of the impoverished Gaza Strip, where Hamas last week seized control from forces loyal to Abbas.”

Well, I guess we have to save our assassins from themselves so they get another chance to annihilate us…

‘Religion of Peace’ plans attacks, goes ballistic over Rushdie


Britain’s knighthood to the author Salman Rushdie contributes to insulting Islam and may lead to terrorism, a Pakistani minister has said.

Link to BBC

Times Online:

“If Muslims do not unite, the situation will get worse and Salman Rushdie may get a seat in the British parliament.”

Iran has also condemned Rushdie’s knighthood, with hardliners issuing calls for his murder today. Mehdi Kuchakzadeh, a Tehran MP, declared: “It would be a hollow dream for the Queen of England to think that with such an action she could revive one of her mercenaries to oppose Islam… Rushdie died the moment the late Imam (Ayatollah Khomeini) issued the fatwa.”

Backed by the Government, the Pakistan parliament today voted unanimously in favour of a resolution calling on Britain to withdraw the proferred knighthood because it is an insult to “the sentiments of Muslims across the world” and created religious hatred.

Libya Set to Head UN Anti-Racism Conference

Press Release: UN Watch

UN hits bottom, digs: Rotten to its core, the United Nations Human Rights Council is about to turn Libyan despot Muammar Gaddafi into some kind of human rights champion, while 6 falsely accused Bulgarian nurses rot in his jails since more than six years:


Gaddafi: World champion in human rights and racism
Libya is the sole candidate for the post of Chair of a United Nations anti-racism conference to be held in Geneva later this month, upsetting human rights groups who recalled the fatal consequences to the Commission on Human Rights when it chose Libya in 2003. According to diplomats, a meeting yesterday by the Human Rights Council’s five regional groups also named Iran, Saudi Arabia, and Russia as among the 15 bureau members who will oversee preparatory deliberations for a 2009 gathering to follow up on the controversial Durban conference of 2001.

Some human rights groups are expressing alarm at the conference leadership, which is to be voted in before the June 25 session. “Choosing Colonel Khaddafi to head a world anti-racism conference is like appointing a pyromaniac to be town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a human rights monitoring organization based in Geneva, Switzerland. “How can a regime that consistently ranks as one of the most notorious violators of human rights—a government that sentenced to death five Bulgarian nurses and a Palestinian doctor only because they were foreigners and therefore easy scapegoats—be charged with promoting fundamental principles of human dignity and equality?”

The 2001 World Conference Against Racism that took place in Durban, South Africa, a few days before 9/11, was mired in controversy. The NGO Declaration said that Arabs were the victims of anti-Semitism and condemned Israel for its “brand of apartheid and other racist crimes against humanity.” During the conference, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mary Robinson denounced the distribution of anti-Semitic cartoons by groups such as the Arab Lawyers’ Union. The United States and Israel walked out in the last days, with the conference described as a “festival of hate” by former Canadian Minister of Justice Irwin Cotler.

“With Khaddafi as Chair—supported by the Wahhabist Saudi regime and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who was condemned by the UN General Assembly this year for his regime’s discrimination against Arabs, Azeris, Baluchis, Bahai, Kurds and other minorities—the UN is dangerously on course to repeat the mistakes of the past,” said Neuer.

UN Watch was founded by Morris B. Abram, a lawyer from Georgia who in the 1950’s became an early advocate in the civil rights campaign led by Martin Luther King, and later headed the United Negro College Fund. The Geneva-based NGO is currently headed by Alfred H. Moses, an advocate and former diplomat.

“The fight against racism is the defining human rights struggle of our time,” said Neuer, “and we cannot allow the sacred and universal goals of human dignity, tolerance and mutual understanding to be hijacked or defiled by the enemies of human rights.”



Gaddafi never paid the Lockerbie victims families 

Relatives of victims of the 1988 bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland, are demanding that Congress withhold State Department funding that would help normalize relations with Libya until Tripoli fully compensates the families of the 270 killed.

“I have seen a lot of people who have suffered through this,” said Siobhan Mulroy, an East Northport woman who lost her father, a brother, a sister-in-law, an aunt, an uncle and a cousin. “We want them to be held to the promises they made.”

Relatives of the lost – at least 10 victims lived on Long Island, scores more lived elsewhere in the New York area and 35 were Syracuse University students – say the U.S. government should halt plans to normalize relations with Libya until that country makes the last installment of a promised $10 million to the families of each of the bombing victims.

The Bush administration has requested $115.9 million to build an embassy in Tripoli and an additional $1.15 million in aid it says will help normalize relations with a Libyan nation that had been implicated in terrorist activity for decades before 2003, when it accepted responsibility for Lockerbie and renounced its efforts to develop weapons of mass destruction.

But by a unanimous vote last week, the House Appropriations Committee passed an amendment to block the funds until President George W. Bush certifies Tripoli is complying with its agreement to compensate the families.

The spending package is expected to come for a vote before the full House later this month.

Rep. Steve Israel (D-Huntington), a member of the committee whose Long Island district includes two relatives of bombing victims, said he pressed for the amendment because it appears Libya is shirking its responsibility.

He said the Libyans “have gotten what they wanted out of the deal, but these families have not gotten what they were promised.”


Rushdie’s Knighthood whips Pakistan into Fanatical Frenzy: Riots in Full Swing

Pakistan Minister: Suicide Attacks Justified by Rushdie Knighthood

Following Britain’s decision to grant knighthood to Salman Rushdie, the whole of Islamistan is gearing up for another violent seethefest, as Pakistan’s “religious affairs minister” says suicide attacks are justified.

This will last a few weeks, no doubt. Like the Koran and the cartoon riots this one will bring about some serious embassy burnings, fire bombings and other kinds of peaceful killings for the religion of peace.

ISLAMABAD, Pakistan – Pakistan on Monday condemned Britain’s award of a knighthood to author Salman Rushdie as an affront to Muslim sentiments, and a Cabinet minister said the honor provided a justification for suicide attacks.

This is an occasion for the (world’s) 1.5 billion Muslims to look at the seriousness of this decision,” Mohammed Ijaz ul-Haq, religious affairs minister, said in parliament.

“The West is accusing Muslims of extremism and terrorism. If someone exploded a bomb on his body, he would be right to do so unless the British government apologizes and withdraws the ‘sir’ title,” ul-Haq said. …

In the eastern city of Multan, hard-line Muslim students burned effigies of Queen Elizabeth II and Rushdie. About 100 students carrying banners condemning the author also chanted, “Kill him! Kill him!”

Egypts Coptic Christians Under Attack (again)

But for the AFP stringer its “Violent clashes have erupted between Muslims and Coptic Christians”– of course.

The 70 million Muslims are just defending themselves, against the tiny minority of extremist Christians, you Islamophobe!


Violent clashes have erupted between Muslims and Coptic Christians in the northern city of Alexandria and elsewhere in Egypt, newspapers reported on Friday.

One clash was sparked by a row between a young Copt and the son of the imam of the city’s Bilal mosque which resulted in dozens of the faithful from both sides fighting outside the Church of the Holy Virgin in Al-Dekhela district.

Several people were hurt and police arrested 13 Muslims and Copts on Thursday, said the independent newspaper Al-Masri Al-Yom which added that the incident underlined growing tensions in the port city and elsewhere.

Anti-riot police had sent 35 vehicles to patrol the district inhabited by members of both communities.

In another incident on Thursday, four people were taken to hospital and 35 arrested in the village of Saft Meydum, south of Cairo.

Violence erupted after a Coptic youth on a bicycle rode into a young Muslim girl whose relatives stormed into the streets heading towards the cyclist’s home intending to stone it, newspapers said.

Copts are estimated to form six to 10 percent of Egypt’s 76 million people.

* Copts are the remnants of the indigenous population of Egypt who is all but wiped out by their Muhammedan overlords. But you will not hear anything about their plight from Irene Khan or other Muhammedan agit props who have infiltrated human rights organization like Amnesia intentional…

Hamas Destroys Christian School and Church

Now that there are no Jews in Gaza and Hamas is in control, they’re beginning continuing the process of driving out the remaining Christians: Gaza’s Christians fear for their lives.


Christians living in Gaza City on Monday appealed to the international community to protect them against increased attacks by Muslim extremists. Many Christians said they were prepared to leave the Gaza Strip as soon as the border crossings are reopened.

The appeal came following a series of attacks on a Christian school and church in Gaza City over the past few days.

Father Manuel Musalam, leader of the small Latin community in the Gaza Strip, said masked gunmen torched and looted the Rosary Sisters School and the Latin Church.

“The masked gunmen used rocket-propelled grenades to storm the main entrances of the school and church,” he said. “Then they destroyed almost everything inside, including the Cross, the Holy Book, computers and other equipment.”

Musalam expressed outrage over the burning of copies of the Bible, noting that the gunmen destroyed all the Crosses inside the church and school. “Those who did these awful things have no respect for Christian-Muslim relations,” he said.


Nutroot priestess: “I am both Muslim and Christian”

Comment: ‘Who are we to judge?’

Taking interfaith kumbayah to new hights:


The Rev. Ann Holmes Redding attends the Sunday morning service at St. Clement’s of Rome Episcopal Church in Seattle. Redding has been an Episcopal priest for 20 years and a Muslim for 15 months.

“I am both Muslim and Christian”

By Janet I. Tu
Seattle Times religion reporter

Shortly after noon on Fridays, the Rev. Ann Holmes Redding ties on a black headscarf, preparing to pray with her Muslim group on First Hill.

On Sunday mornings, Redding puts on the white collar of an Episcopal priest.

She does both, she says, because she’s Christian and Muslim.

Redding, who until recently was director of faith formation at St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral, has been a priest for more than 20 years. Now she’s ready to tell people that, for the last 15 months, she’s also been a Muslim — drawn to the faith after an introduction to Islamic prayers left her profoundly moved.

Her announcement has provoked surprise and bewilderment in many, raising an obvious question: How can someone be both a Christian and a Muslim?

But it has drawn other reactions too. Friends generally say they support her, while religious scholars are mixed: Some say that, depending on how one interprets the tenets of the two faiths, it is, indeed, possible to be both. Others consider the two faiths mutually exclusive.

“There are tenets of the faiths that are very, very different,” said Kurt Fredrickson, director of the doctor of ministry program at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif. “The most basic would be: What do you do with Jesus?”


Redding, at right, prays with other members of the Al-Islam Center recently at the Yesler Community Center.

Christianity has historically regarded Jesus as the son of God and God incarnate, both fully human and fully divine. Muslims, though they regard Jesus as a great prophet, do not see him as divine and do not consider him the son of God.

“I don’t think it’s possible” to be both, Fredrickson said, just like “you can’t be a Republican and a Democrat.”

Redding, who will begin teaching the New Testament as a visiting assistant professor at Seattle University this fall, has a different analogy: “I am both Muslim and Christian, just like I’m both an American of African descent and a woman. I’m 100 percent both.”

Redding doesn’t feel she has to resolve all the contradictions. People within one religion can’t even agree on all the details, she said. “So why would I spend time to try to reconcile all of Christian belief with all of Islam?

“At the most basic level, I understand the two religions to be compatible. That’s all I need.”

She says she felt an inexplicable call to become Muslim, and to surrender to God — the meaning of the word “Islam.”

“It wasn’t about intellect,” she said. “All I know is the calling of my heart to Islam was very much something about my identity and who I am supposed to be.

“I could not not be a Muslim.”

Redding’s situation is highly unusual. Officials at the national Episcopal Church headquarters said they are not aware of any other instance in which a priest has also been a believer in another faith. They said it’s up to the local bishop to decide whether such a priest could continue in that role.

Redding’s bishop, the Rt. Rev. Vincent Warner, says he accepts Redding as an Episcopal priest and a Muslim, and that he finds the interfaith possibilities exciting. Her announcement, first made through a story in her diocese’s newspaper, hasn’t caused much controversy yet, he said.

Some local Muslim leaders are perplexed.

Being both Muslim and Christian — “I don’t know how that works,” said Hisham Farajallah, president of the Islamic Center of Washington.

* I don’t know either. Last time I checked there were ladies and men. But there are also ladymen… Guess we need just more ‘diversity…’

Seattle: Episcopal priest told by bishop that she can’t profess both Christianity and Islam and stay in priesthood

Ann Holmes Redding Update: This bishop, unlike another in the initial story, doesn’t seem to “find the interfaith possibilities exciting.”

“Episcopal priest given ultimatum,” by Janet I. Tu for the Seattle Times, October 10:

There are moments these days when the Rev. Ann Holmes Redding sits outside a church or a Muslim gathering, wondering if she will be welcome at either.

It didn’t use to be this way. But now, six months away from what is almost certain to be her defrocking, the Episcopal priest who announced last year that she had also become a Muslim remains steadfast in her belief that she was called to both faiths but says her decision to follow that call has been exceedingly painful at times.

In a letter mailed last week to national and local church leaders, Bishop Geralyn Wolf of Rhode Island, who has disciplinary authority over the Seattle priest, said a church committee had determined that Redding “abandoned the Communion of the Episcopal Church by formal admission into a religious body not in communion with the Episcopal Church.”

Wolf has affirmed that determination, barring Redding from functioning as a priest for the next six months.

According to church law, unless Redding resigns her priesthood or denies being a Muslim during those six months, the bishop has a duty to defrock — or depose — her, as the process is formally known.

Redding, who served as director of faith formation at Seattle’s St. Mark’s Episcopal Cathedral, said she has no plans to resign or to renounce Islam, any more than she would renounce Christianity. She does not believe she has abandoned the communion of the Episcopal Church.

“I’m saddened and disappointed that this could not be an opportunity” for the church to broaden its perspective and talk about what it means to adhere to more than one faith, Redding said.

“The automatic assumption is that if I’m one of ‘them,’ I can’t be one of ‘us’ anymore.” But “I’m still following Jesus in being a Muslim. I have not abandoned that.”

But Allah has no son.

Redding has been a priest for nearly 25 years.

While she does not regret going public about her embrace of Islam, she does acknowledge being naive about the controversy her announcement would stir up.

“I can definitely be a Pollyanna,” she said. “It never occurred to me it was something to be in the closet about. I just thought it was great.”

Getting to know Islam was “like falling in love,” she said. “You want to share it, you want to get on a rooftop and start shouting.” […]

Redding says she understands why people might be upset that a priest would also profess another faith, given that a priest represents the church. But she firmly believes she did not break her ordination vows. […]

Nicene Creed? Meh. Details.

Her one regret, she said, is not realizing that some parishioners at St. Mark’s would feel betrayed that they were forming their Christian faith with someone who also professed to be Muslim. She said she has since tried to talk with as many of them as she could.

She will miss the collegiality of her fellow priests, though Bishop Gregory Rickel of the Diocese of Olympia, which covers Western Washington, said Wolf’s decision “does not mean the end of our personal relationships. Pastorally, we in the Diocese of Olympia are very much here for Ann.”

And there is this: As one of the first African-American women the denomination ordained, Redding was sometimes the first female or African-American priest some parishioners had ever seen. “My symbolic role has been an incredible honor.” Now she fears that some “will think I’ve somehow let them down.”

Redding is currently finishing a book with two other local authors called “Out of Darkness into Light: Spiritual Guidance in the Quran with Reflections from Jewish and Christian Sources.” She’d like to do more writing and academic work while pushing forward her desire to build an institute to study the three Abrahamic faiths: Judaism, Christianity and Islam.

Maybe somewhere in her studies it will dawn on her that under Islamic law, she would have severely restricted rights as a woman, and for her beliefs, she would be regarded as a heretic, with all the associated dangers to life and limb.

Peanut Khadr wants US to ‘fix’ Nepal Maoists


Jimmy Carter, the world’s leading appeasement weasel, the former president who doesn’t know when to shut up, now calls on the United States to “talk” with the Maoist thugs of Nepal.

KATHMANDU (AFP via LGF) – Former US President Jimmy Carter called on his country’s government Saturday to establish relations with Nepal’s former rebel Maoists, who remain on a list of US terrorist organisations.

“My opinion is that the US should establish some communication with the Maoists. The people of Nepal have accepted them as political players,” Carter told journalists at the end of a four-day visit to Nepal. …

* No surprises here. Khadr always had a big heart for commies, murderers and third world dictators… 

During his visit, Carter met with Prachanda, the Maoist leader whose nom-de-guerre means “the fierce one.” The 82-year-old former president admitted he was worried about the activities of the Young Communist League (YCL), the Maoist youth wing that has frequently been accused of using mafia-like tactics.

“I am still concerned about some of the activities of the YCL. My hope is that they will be corrected,” Carter told reporters at a hotel in the capital. “I have expressed my concern to him (Prachanda) and he has assured me he will do whatever possible to correct the problem,” Carter said.
