Netherlands: “Cut benefits to burqa wearers”

Spine Discovered in Holland

* If “the behaviour of the job seeker prevented him or her from finding a job,” that is the responsibility of the individual in question, not of the state.

“‘Cut benefits to burqa wearers,'” from Expatica via DW
THE HAGUE – A majority in Parliament wants the government to allow municipalities to cut benefits if the recipients are unable to find a job because they wear a burqa.
A motion to this effect from Liberal VVD MP Atzo Nicolaï and Labour PvdA MP Hans Spekman was passed on Tuesday.

Coalition party PvdA and opposition party VVD are concerned about a verdict from the court in Amsterdam earlier this month. The court found in preliminary proceedings that the municipality Diemen had unlawfully docked the benefits of a Muslim woman who wears a burqa because she had been unable to find a job after four job applications.

Aboutaleb has said in earlier debates with Parliament that the case in Diemen should be put in perspective. He says it is just “one case,” while there have also been court verdicts that have found in favour of municipalities in cases where the behaviour of the job seeker prevented him or her from finding a job. One of these cases also concerned the wearing of a burqa.

* One case is one too many.

Burqas: hazardous to your health

Human beings need sunshine. “Are Muslim dress codes bad for women’s health?,” by Preeti Aroon for Foreign Policy via DW

Conservative Muslim dress codes may be causing vitamin D deficiency in women by limiting their exposure to sunlight, humans’ main source for the vitamin, according to new research.
Scientists had previously found high rates of vitamin D deficiency in Arab and East Indian women living in the United Arab Emirates.
A follow-up study investigated the effect of vitamin D supplements on 178 UAE women, many of whom covered themselves entirely, faces and hands included, when outside their homes. Only two of the women did not have vitamin D deficiency prior to receiving supplements. The results were published by a team of scientists in the June issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

“Burkinis not good good enough” sez Muslim Weekly

‘Pleasing Allah more important..’

* That’ right folks, nothing but the full monty, on the double:

” …there has been a strong criticism of burqini by the muslim ulema (scholars) who feel that there is nothing islamic about a burqini.”

“Zanetti, did you forget we are Muslims and are not like most people. What is the point of our sisters trying to prove themselves as equally enjoyng life according to the non believers’ standards? ”

“I am sure most of us Muslim women would love to catch a break on the wave, go jet skiing and wake boarding, or just good old free styling, but I am more sure that most of us have given up those pleasures to seek the greatest one – that of pleasing Allah. ”

Mufti of Egypt bans female circumcision

    Sort of.     He doesn’t really mean it. And his proclamation will not help 97 % of Egyptian women to get their clitoris back either…

Egypt’s state-appointed Grand Mufti said today female genital cutting is forbidden by Islam.
His pronouncement came after an 11-year-old girl died while undergoing the procedure at a private medical clinic in southern Egypt.

Genital cutting of girls, often referred to as female genital mutilation or circumcision, is banned in Egypt although the practice remains widespread as a rite of passage for girls and is often viewed as a way to protect their chastity.

“The harmful tradition of circumcision that is practised in Egypt in our era is forbidden,” Mufti Ali Gomaa was quoted as saying by the Egyptian state news agency MENA.

There are a couple of weasel words in there. Does he mean that if it is practiced in a different way from how it is practiced in Egypt in our era, it would be all right?

Ali Gomaa, the statue-hatin’, wife-beatin’, Hizballah-supportin’ Mufti of Egypt, now says that female genital mutilation is wrong, apparently reversing the Shafi’i school’s traditional judgment that it is obligatory (cf. ‘Umdat al-Salik e4.3). It will be interesting to see what actions, if any, he takes in order to back up this ruling.

Al Bebeceera Reports: London “Bomb” made safe by police

London:Massive Bombing Averted
“Packed with Nails and Gas”

Associated Limp dicks of once ‘Great Britain’ report:

Robin Oakley, CNN resident poofter, politically coorrrrrect wanker of yester- year, chimes in: A ‘potential incident’- nothing more…

* nothing to worry about, move on, the IRA, ‘political problems’- people ‘who preach violent messages’- hmm, who could that be? Ah, the ‘Muslim community who are feeling targeted’- Robin Oakley, a guy so full of it it makes you choke, what an A-sole…..


* Nothing to worry about, right? The police made it ‘safe’…

* It was a just a ‘peaceful bomb’ planted by the RoP because of their grievances. Because of the misguided policies of Britain in the Middle East. Lets blame the Joozzz and get on with it, right?

Police have made safe an explosive device in London.
Officers were called to reports of a suspicious vehicle parked in The Haymarket shortly before 0200 BST.

The immediate area was cordoned off while police examined what they described as a “potentially viable explosive device”.

The Metropolitan Police Counter Terrorism Command has launched an investigation and The Haymarket is likely to remain closed for some time.

* London escaped what could have been its worst terrorist attack this morning when a car bomb packed with nails, gas canisters and containers of petrol apparently failed to detonate outside a popular West End nightclub hosting a ‘ladies’ night’.

* Pamela sez: Already the useful idiots talking heads are explaining the massive bomb as a result of “the unhappiness of the war in Iraq.” WTF is wrong with these people? As if. Islam was kicking ass, setting bombs, cutting clits, killing Jews, killing infidels, imposing sharia long before Iraq, 9/11 etc. These savages are at war with us.



Central London street sealed off amid new alert 



Police cordoned off part of a major road in central London due to reports of a suspicious vehicle hours after a massive explosive device was defused in the capital, a spokesman said.

Amid heightened security after the overnight bomb alert, television pictures showed traffic disrupted around Park Lane, next to Hyde Park, while Sky News reported that a red London tourist bus had been stopped.

“Police are attending a suspicious incident in Park Lane,” a Scotland Yard spokeswoman told AFP. “Park Lane is closed at Marble Arch and Hyde Park Corner and a 200-metre (yard) cordon is in place.”

Asked if the incident was linked to the explosive device found in a car outside a nightclub in nearby Haymarket, she said: “Not at this stage.”

She would not say whether counter-terrorism officers were in Park Lane, nor what the vehicle was.

But she confirmed that a “gold control” — the police’s highest command system during emergencies — had been set up in response to the discovery of the car bomb, which officers said could have caused carnage if it had exploded.

Reports of suspicious activity and vehicles were expected following such incidents, she added.


British authorities should ban the niqab and return to a celebration of the miniskirt

By Bob Tyrrell

Stuffy old London is all jitters about a new craze in woman’s fashion, the niqab. It is a black gown that covers the ladies from head to toe. Even their arms are covered. Two slits, somewhat reminiscent of the slits in armored personnel carriers, allow the ladies to see out. There are no openings for the nostrils. How the ladies breath is a mystery. Perhaps they carry oxygen packs.

The heavy black garment is generally worn only by British Muslims, though possibly non-Muslim British ladies are also wearing niqabs. How would one know? For that matter, how would one know if there were more than one woman under a passing niqab, or perhaps a man, or two women and a goat? That is the problem, according to British authorities. No one knows what is going on under a nearby niqab.

Frankly, I would think that religiously strict mullahs also would be alarmed. There could be a man and a woman illicitly cohabiting under a nearby niqab, or just a rude woman sticking her tongue out at him. Compared to a miniskirt or a thong, a niqab is actually quite subversive. That is the view of British authorities. Some months ago, the Labor Party politician Jack Straw barred niqab-wearing women from his offices, even if they were wearing Chanel No. 5 and whistling “G-d Save the Queen.”

The response of Western democracies to the excesses of fundamentalist Islam is approaching the absurd. There is, in our free societies, abundant precedent for limiting provocative behavior. Unfortunately, many of our liberals are susceptible to the complaints of those who hate us. They were susceptible to communists and in the 1930s they were even susceptible to Nazis. It is my hope that the British authorities will ban the niqab and return to a celebration of the miniskirt. I personally admire a woman who has nothing to hide.


The Trouble with Islam

The Myth of Islamophobia

6 “militants” killed in Lebanon clashes

More “One-man’s-Terrorist-is-another-man’s-Freedom -Fighter”- reporting from AP

By SAM F. GHATTAS, Associated Press Writer

BEIRUT, Lebanon – Lebanese troops raided an Islamic militant hideout in a hillside cave and killed six fighters Thursday as violence spread from a Palestinian refugee camp where the military has been battling an al-Qaida-inspired group.

Lebanese soldiers and Red Cross workers carry the body of an Islamic militant who was killed in a clash with the army that occurred in the wilderness near the village of Qalamoun, some 5 kilometers (3 miles) south of the northern port city of Tripoli, Lebanon Thursday, June 28, 2007. Lebanese troops killed six Islamic militants during a gun battle in a northern Lebanon town on Thursday, a military official said. (AP Photo)

The dawn gunbattle — a 20-minute drive from the Nahr el-Bared Palestinian camp by the northern port city of Tripoli — underscored the challenges the army faces in crushing the Fatah Islam militants.

It also indicated Fatah Islam may have found allies among Sunni militants and fundamentalists in the region who were not affiliated with the group.

The fighting at Nahr el-Bared has become the worst internal violence since Lebanon’s 1975-90 civil war, and is believed to have claimed the lives of more than 160 people, including 84 soldiers, at least 60 militants and more than 20 civilians.

Fighting first began five weeks ago in Tripoli, a largely Sunni city. Then, it shifted to the Nahr el-Bared camp, after the militants barricaded themselves inside it.

Last weekend, it moved back to Tripoli, and on Thursday to the hills near Qalamoun, 3 miles south of the city.

Troops, backed by helicopters, descended on a Fatah Islam hideout obscured by dense growth in the hills above the Mediterranean coastline. The military said a number of soldiers were slightly wounded in the clashes.

The army was apparently tipped about the hideout by residents of a nearby village who had spotted strangers in the area.

An army said a unit pursuing militants in the area clashed with “a group of terrorists” barricaded inside a cave.

* Interesting. The army calls them ‘terrorists’- the MSM turns them into ‘militants’

“The force eliminated all six members of the group, seizing a quantity of arms and ammunition,” it said. The six were of different nationalities, the army said but did not identify them.

UK to spend over a million dollars to “unlock potential of Muslim women” 

 Another waste of taxpayers money for a bulls*#t feel good program on the road to nowhere:

Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly is announcing a new community leadership fund today to support Muslim communities to unlock the potential of women and young Muslims in making communities resilient and stronger in facing down the voices of violent extremism.
She will launch a new £650,000 Preventing Violent Extremism: Community Leadership Fund which will provide grants to programmes across the country.

Ruth Kelly believes that supporting Muslim communities to play a greater leadership role in civic life and shaping the places they live will help promote greater equality and strengthen resilience to extremism in local communities.

* Update: “Communities Secretary Ruth Kelly”…

…was fired today in a government re-shuffle. She is now Minister for Transport. However the policy will almost certainly remain unchanged.

Which is, of course, a one-way street to get far left lunacy into conservative radio stations, not the other way around:

An Arizona lawmaker has proposed a federal measure to protect conservative radio talk show hosts like Rush Limbaugh, Laura Ingraham and Sean Hannity from regulations being pushed by liberal advocates and Democrats.

U.S. Rep. Jeff Flake, R-Mesa, has put forward a measure to prohibit the Federal Communications Commission from reinstating the Fairness Doctrine. Proponents say reinstating the measure would be an attack on free speech.

Palistani Arabs in Love with Iran’s Nukes

Not that Condi Rice or her master would ever notice. Perhaps she should have a look at the history of jihad, here

By Yaakov Lappen from Ynet News (thanks to JW)

Of 37 populations around the world, Palestinians rank first in their level of support for a nuclear-armed Iran, a new poll has revealed. The survey, taken by the Pew Global Attitudes Project, found that 58 percent of the Palestinian public are in favor of Tehran acquiring atomic weapons, making Palestinians the only Middle Eastern population not opposed to an Iranian bomb.
“Most of the Muslim countries surveyed have negative or mixed opinions of Iran. Majorities among just three Muslim publics – in Pakistan, Bangladesh and the Palestinian territories – say they favor Iran acquiring nuclear weapons,” the survey said.

The poll added that “positive views of Iran have declined sharply over the past year in three Muslim countries – Indonesia, Egypt, and, especially, Turkey.”

When it came to attitudes towards the US, Israel and the Palestinians were placed, unsurprisingly, on opposite ends of the spectrum.

Unsurprisingly? When you consider all the money the U.S. has poured into the PA, one would think Palestinians would be overflowing with gratitude. But of course, this sort of thing never wins over the hearts and minds of those who are imbued with jihadist attitudes — which doesn’t stop American officials from trying it over and over again anyway.

* Comment from JW: For the past 14 centuries, islamic territory is expanding and infidel territory is shrinking. Kosovo is falling. Kashmir and Chechenya will be next and the infidels will end up bombing each other in trying to appease the muslims. The U.S. has already bombed the Serbs, it may end up bombing India and Russia over Kashmir and Chechenya. jihad continues. Successfully.

“War is Deception” said Muhammad. Abu Maazen keeps on Deceiving


Abbas outlaws weapons…on paper only

We keep hearing the same old rhetoric used to describe the new and improved moderate Fatah government: “New Government,” “New Opportunity,” “Fresh Start,” etc. PA and Fatah Chairman Mahmoud Abbas continues to play his role in this ugly game to perfection. In the true spirit of “moderation,” he has outlawed all weapons that are not in the hands of his Security Service (S.S.). “Abbas bans carrying explosives, arms without license in W. Bank,” from Ha’aretz :

Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday outlawed all armed Palestinian groups except for the official PA security services.
“On the basis of the declaration of a state of emergency in the Palestinian territories, and by virtue of my authority, all armed militias, groups and brigades that do not belong in practice to the security services shall be treated as illegal organizations,” read the first order.

The US, Eurabia and Israel is paying for this deception. More…

BAGHDAD – Bombing kills 22 at Baghdad bus station


AP Photo: A woman passes destroyed vehicles at a bus station in the Baiyaa neighborhood in Baghdad,…

while a parked car bomb killed another 20 people in one of the capital’s busy outdoor bus stations, police said.
The beheaded remains were found in the Sunni Muslim village of Um al-Abeed, near the city of Salman Pak, which lies 14 miles southeast of Baghdad.

The bodies — all men aged 20 to 40 years old — had their hands and legs bound, and some of the heads were found next to the bodies, two officers said on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to release the information.

Meanwhile, a parked car bomb ripped through a crowded transport hub in southwest Baghdad’s Baiyaa neighborhood at morning rush hour, killing at least 20 people and wounding more than 50, another officer said on the same condition.

Bush & his Kumbayah Brigade in the Mosque, Again

* Stupid is as stupid does. But GWB can always do you one up:

* America’s obstinate, dyslexic, allergic-to-learning president GWB swings into submission mode again and drags his sycophants to the mosque to sing ‘why can’t we all just get along’– and ‘why do you hate US’- there is nothing, NOTHING more shameful, disgraceful and demeaning…

Makeshift hijabs were the order of the day for Bush’s female staffers, but there is one lone dissenter in the background. (“Dhimmi diplomats” just because they covered their heads? No.) Reuters’ caption:

Terrorism Expert Steve Emerson Rips Bush for his Delusions:

Emerson: President Bush’s Radical Outreach


Bush’s Outreach Partners

Terrorism expert Steve Emerson is just as dismayed by President Bush’s pandering to radicals at the Islamic Center of Washington DC as I am: Radical Outreach.

The President’s idea of an envoy who will “learn” from the Organization of the Islamic Conference is simply ludicrous.

At Wednesday’s rededication ceremony of the Saudi-funded Islamic Center of Washington, D.C., President Bush missed a perfect opportunity to repudiate apologism for radical Islam, and instead announced his latest plan to get the Muslim world to stop hating America: appoint a special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).

Bush praised the OIC, saying, “We admire and thank those Muslims who have denounced what the Secretary General of the OIC called ‘radical fringe elements who pretend that they act in the name of Islam.’” The special envoy’s mission, Bush said, would be to “listen and learn” to OIC ambassadors.


U.S. approves contacts with Muslim Brotherhood: ‘Region is going Islam’


* And there is nothing we can do about it, except join them. Ignorance and stupidity rule supreme in Washington. Aw right, we can send an ‘envoy’- how about that?

Leiken’s naivete and willful ignorance win the day. For now. From the World Tribune (thanks to DW)

WASHINGTON — The Bush administration has been quietly engaging the Muslim Brotherhood movement.
Officials said the State Department has approved a policy that would enable U.S. diplomats to meet and coordinate with Brotherhood leaders in Egypt, Iraq, Syria and other Arab states. They said the program would first be restricted to elected officials from the Brotherhood and eventually be extended to their political chiefs.

“The region is going Islam,” an official said. “We see this in nearly every country in the Middle East. We either understand it and engage with it or find ourselves completely out of the picture.”

* Zappa sez: “You gotta get into it before you get out of it…”

The Brotherhood has been regarded as the inspiration for Muslim movements throughout the Arab world. The organization, founded in Egypt, spread through Saudi financing and has served as the inspiration for Al Qaida.

Many Arab countries have banned the Brotherhood. But in Egypt, a party composed of Brotherhood members has won 20 percent of the seats in the National Assembly and plays a major role in domestic policy.

Check out the ‘Muslim Brotherhood Project’

One might be led to think that if international law enforcement authorities and Western intelligence agencies had discovered a twenty-year old document revealing a top-secret plan developed by the oldest Islamist organization with one of the most extensive terror networks in the world to launch a program of “cultural invasion” and eventual conquest of the West that virtually mirrors the tactics used by Islamists for more than two decades, that such news would scream from headlines published on the front pages and above the fold of the New York Times, Washington Post, London Times, Le Monde, Bild, and La Repubblica.

If that’s what you might think, you would be wrong.

Here is some of their program:

Networking and coordinating actions between likeminded Islamist organizations;
Avoiding open alliances with known terrorist organizations and individuals to maintain the appearance of “moderation”;
Infiltrating and taking over existing Muslim organizations to realign them towards the Muslim Brotherhood’s collective goals;
Using deception to mask the intended goals of Islamist actions, as long as it doesn’t conflict with shari’a law;
Avoiding social conflicts with Westerners locally, nationally or globally, that might damage the long-term ability to expand the Islamist powerbase in the West or provoke a lash back against Muslims;
Establishing financial networks to fund the work of conversion of the West, including the support of full-time administrators and workers;
Conducting surveillance, obtaining data, and establishing collection and data storage capabilities;
Putting into place a watchdog system for monitoring Western media to warn Muslims of “international plots fomented against them”;
Cultivating an Islamist intellectual community, including the establishment of think-tanks and advocacy groups, and publishing “academic” studies, to legitimize Islamist positions and to chronicle the history of Islamist movements;
Developing a comprehensive 100-year plan to advance Islamist ideology throughout the world;
Balancing international objectives with local flexibility;
Building extensive social networks of schools, hospitals and charitable organizations dedicated to Islamist ideals so that contact with the movement for Muslims in the West is constant;
Involving ideologically committed Muslims in democratically-elected institutions on all levels in the West, including government, NGOs, private organizations and labor unions;
Instrumentally using existing Western institutions until they can be converted and put into service of Islam;
Drafting Islamic constitutions, laws and policies for eventual implementation;
Avoiding conflict within the Islamist movements on all levels, including the development of processes for conflict resolution;
Instituting alliances with Western “progressive” organizations that share similar goals;
Creating autonomous “security forces” to protect Muslims in the West;
Inflaming violence and keeping Muslims living in the West “in a jihad frame of mind”;
Supporting jihad movements across the Muslim world through preaching, propaganda, personnel, funding, and technical and operational support;
Making the Palestinian cause a global wedge issue for Muslims;
Adopting the total liberation of Palestine from Israel and the creation of an Islamic state as a keystone in the plan for global Islamic domination;
Instigating a constant campaign to incite hatred by Muslims against Jews and rejecting any discussions of conciliation or coexistence with them;
Actively creating jihad terror cells within Palestine;
Linking the terrorist activities in Palestine with the global terror movement;
Collecting sufficient funds to indefinitely perpetuate and support jihad around the world;

Hugh Fitzgerald:

‘Building Bridges” with the Musulman

Lets built bridges, you infidels! So that we Muslims can blow them up:

Build those bridges. Every Infidel a pontifex maximus, a relentless roebling, building building building those bridges.

Muslims feel “isolated.” Muslims feel “unwanted.” Muslims feel “unloved.” That’s why they do what they do in southern Thailand, and the southern Philippines. That’s why they decaptiate Christian schoolgirls in Indonesia, attack Christan churches in Alexandria, or Baghdad, kill Hindus in Bangladesh and drive millions of them out, why the Taliban, those hyper-Muslims, forced Hindus in Afghanistan to wear yellow identifying robes, why they felt compelled to blow up the Bamiyan Buddhas, or destory churches in Gaza, or drive even “Palestinian” Christians out of Bethlehem. It’s why death threats were made against Danish tourists, unless and until the editors of Jyllands-Posten were punished for daring to publish a handful of anodyne cartoons. That’s why bombs went off in Atocha Station in Madrid, on the Underground in London, why a Moscow theatre was seized, why Pim Fortuyn and Theo van Gogh were murdered.

“Not integrated.” “Unwanted.” “Unloved.” Prove, Infidels, the contrary. Do everything you can to integrate those Muslims. Lavish every possible program on them — language, culture, all the things that no other group of immigrants appears to need, lest members of that group start hating those among whom they live. Provide every conceivable benefit: education, health care, subsidized housing, all far beyond what those hundreds of thousands, say, of Somalis now living in this country could ever have dreamed of at home, living in Muslim Misrule, Muslim
Malgoverno. Pile it on. Dedicate, re-dedicate those mosques. Do whatever it takes. Don’t say a word against Islam, don’t even hint at it. Always and everywhere denounce those who beg to point out this or that disturbing feature of Islam. Shout them down. Censor their websites. Banish those “hate-mongers” to the outer darkness.

Keep it up.

Bridges. Build. Greater. To. Understanding.

Make Muslims Happy To Be Here.

* Building drawbridges might be a better idea, no?

Majid Khadduri, a clueless George W. Bush & the global Jihad

Robert Spencer explains why the stubborn, naive and dyslexic US-president just doesn’t get it:

Majid Khadduri and George W. Bush

When he spoke this week at the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Islamic Center of Washington, President Bush said: “In the Middle East, we have seen instead the rise of a group of extremists who seek to use religion as a path to power and a means of domination. This self-appointed vanguard presumes to speak for Muslims. They do not.”

There we are again. The Administration and the mainstream media (both Left and Right) take it as axiomatic that the jihad we see all over the world today represents a perversion of Islam, repudiated by the vast majority of Muslims. The American Muslim advocacy industry, chiefly the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), which has recently been named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas terror funding case, has quite successfully portrayed any exploration of the elements of Islam that give rise to and justify jihad violence and Islamic supremacism as a manifestation of “hatred,” “bigotry,” “Islamophobia.” Those who do not accept the iron dogma that Islam contains nothing within it that can reasonably be used to justify terrorism are vilified and marginalized.

Khadduri was an Iraqi Muslim and a scholar of Islamic law of international renown. I’ve lately been revisiting his book War and Peace in the Law of Islam, which was published in 1955 and remains one of the most lucid and illuminating works on the subject. Khadduri says this about jihad:

The state which is regarded as the instrument for universalizing a certain religion must perforce be an ever expanding state. The Islamic state, whose principal function was to put God’s law into practice, sought to establish Islam as the dominant reigning ideology over the entire world. It refused to recognize the coexistence of non-Muslim communities, except perhaps as subordinate entities, because by its very nature a universal state tolerates the existence of no other state than itself. Although it was not a consciously formulated policy, Muhammad’s early successors, after Islam became supreme in Arabia, were determined to embark on a ceaseless war of conquest in the name of Islam. The jihad was therefore employed as an instrument for both the universalization of religion and the establishment of an imperial world state. (P. 51)

Thus the jihad may be regarded as Islam’s instrument or carrying out its ultimate objective by turning all people into believers, if not in the prophethood of Muhammad (as in the case of the dhimmis), at least in the belief in God. The Prophet Muhammad is reported to have declared “some of my people will continue to fight victoriously for the sake of the truth until the last one of them will combat the anti-Christ.” Until that moment is reached the jihad, in one form or another, will remain as a permanent obligation upon the entire Muslim community. It follows that the existence of a dar al-harb is ultimately outlawed under the Islamic jural order; that the dar al-Islam is permanently under jihad obligation until the dar al-harb is reduced to non-existence; and that any community which prefers to remain non-Islamic — in the status of a tolerated religious community accepting certain disabilities — must submit to Islamic rule and reside in the dar al-Islam or be bound as clients to the Muslim community.

GW Bush: Clueless, Shoe less, Deluded in the Mosque 

By Daniel Pipes

Standing shoeless, George W. Bush rededicated the center last week. His 1,600-word speech also praised medieval Islamic culture (“We come to express our appreciation for a faith that has enriched civilization for centuries”), but he knew a mosque from a church – and he had more on the agenda than flattery.

Most arresting, surely, was his statement that “I have invested the heart of my presidency in helping Muslims fight terrorism, and claim their liberty, and find their own unique paths to prosperity and peace.” 

Heaven help us from the Bushes and get us out of the shrubs…. 


Steve Emerson:  Radical Outreach

Bush coddles American apologists for radical Islam

At Wednesday’s rededication ceremony of the Saudi-funded Islamic Center of Washington, D.C., President Bush missed a perfect opportunity to repudiate apologism for radical Islam, and instead announced his latest plan to get the Muslim world to stop hating America: appoint a special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC).

Bush praised the OIC, saying, “We admire and thank those Muslims who have denounced what the Secretary General of the OIC called ‘radical fringe elements who pretend that they act in the name of Islam.’” The special envoy’s mission, Bush said, would be to “listen and learn” to OIC ambassadors.

While this may sound nice, it is rooted in complete ignorance of the rampant radicalism, pro-terrorist, and anti-American sentiments routinely found in statements by the OIC and its leaders, including referring to “Islamophobia” — and not the mass slaughter of innocents in the name of Islam — the “worst form of terrorism,” as OIC did last May.

In 2002, the OIC published its “Declaration on International Terrorism.” Therein, the authors stated, amongst other outrageous claims, that there was no such thing as Palestinian terrorism, writing, “We reject any attempt to associate Islamic states or Palestinian and Lebanese resistance with terrorism.”  To the OIC, groups like Hamas, Islamic Jihad, the Al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, and Hezbollah are not terrorists, but ‘freedom fighters’

Bush is either in the pocket of the Islamo-fascists, or he is dangerously deluded or beyond stupid. Perhaps he is all of these things, and that’s not good…

Religion of Peace Strikes Again in Thailand: Al Reuters and AP report bulls#*t…

Three more dead and 17 wounded in the south Thailand jihad: Bomb kills 3, wounds 17 in Thailand’s Muslim south.

YALA, Thailand – A roadside bomb killed three people and wounded 17 in Thailand’s rebellious Muslim south as they were buying food on Wednesday, police said.

The remote-controlled 5-kg (11-lb) bomb hidden in the basket of a motorcycle exploded near food stalls in the city of Yala, capital of one of three southern provinces where more than 2,100 people have been killed in a three-year-old separatist insurgency, police said.

Five of the wounded were hurt seriously, they said.

Nobody claims responsibility for the daily gun or bomb attacks in the far south, annexed by predominately Buddhist Thailand a century ago, where most people speak a Malay dialect.

“Nobody claims responsibility?” Then why are Reuters and the Associated Press so insistent that the murder spree is being committed by “resurgent separatist Muslim insurgents?”

* Craven is the only word for this: Iranian cartoon pulled from film festival. If it was a jihad flick with a few beheadings it would have been just right, no?

THAILAND has caved in to pressure from Iran and withdrawn the animated movie Persepolis, about a girl growing up and feeling repressed under Islamic rule, from next month’s Bangkok International Film Festival.

“I was invited by the Iranian embassy to discuss the matter and we both came to mutual agreement that it would be beneficial to both countries if the film was not shown,” festival director Chattan Kunjara na Ayudhya said today.

“It’s a good film, but there are other considerations.”

The film, based on the popular French comic books of Iranian director and writer Marjane Satrapi, drew complaints from the government-affiliated Iran Farabi Foundation when it was screened at this year’s Cannes Film Festival in France.

In a letter published by several news organisations, the foundation said the film “presented an unrealistic face of the achievements and results of the glorious Islamic Revolution in some of its parts”.

Russia: Another Ex-Guantanamo detainee killed


* Gitmo enemy combatants have a habit of returning to the battlefield. There have been numerous cases where innocent jihadists  ex-inmates have been killed or recaptured in Afghanistan, Iraq or other places where the jihad rages. No doubt the nutroots would have us believe that Gitmo ‘radicalized them’- otherwise they would be just pussycats…

Today’s jihad slogan: “The meaning of peace is the absence of opposition to Islam.”

A man formerly held in the U.S. facility in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, was killed Wednesday in a shootout with security agents in a restive North Caucasus republic, Russia’s top security agency said.

Ruslan Odizhev was killed amid gunfire that erupted when agents tried to arrest him and another man in Kabardino-Balkariya, a region near Chechnya that is plagued by violence linked both to crime and to religious tensions, the Federal Security Service said in a statement.

The service, known by its Russian acronym FSB, said Odizhev had been held at Guantanamo Bay and was believed to have been a supporter of the Taliban. Odizhev was one of seven Russians released from the detention facility in 2004; his whereabouts recently had been unknown.

The FSB did not specify why agents were trying to detain him, but said he was a suspect in the 1999 bombings of apartment buildings in Moscow and Volgodonsk and that he took part in a 2005 insurgent attack on police and government facilities in Nalchik, the capital of Kabardino-Balkariya.

That attack left 139 people dead, including 94 militants. Chechen warlord Shamil Basayev, who was killed in 2006, claimed credit for planning the attack.

The FSB said Odizhev was the “spiritual leader” of Yarmuk, an Islamic extremist organization connected to an array of violence in the region.
