Scrambling For Excuses: "Leading Expert" Cites Jihadists' "Boredom"

Bored Muslims…

Marc Sageman rides again. “Latest terrorists are ‘looking for thrills’,” by Natalie O’Brien for The Australian:

The third wave of terrorism facing the world is a leaderless mishmash of young and bored terrorist wannabees, according to a leading US expert.
Former CIA officer and now author Marc Sageman says that the latest jihadis taking up the global call for action more closely resemble criminal gang members than religious fanatics.

*
Dr Sageman who has just published his second book on terrorism networks, Leaderless Jihad: Terrorist Networks in the Twenty First Century, said they were typically young men looking for action, and wanting to copy their heroes, who include Osama bin Laden.
“It is more about hero-worship than about religion,” said Dr Sageman.
“It’s about youth culture … about being cool – jihadi cool.” […]

New study: “Oil, not Islam, oppresses women”

images-12.jpeg

* The never-ending quest to find something, anything, anything but Islam, to explain Islamic violence, Islamic supremacism, and — in particular here — the oppression of women in Islam continues. This one is particularly egregious: it’s all about oil, you see, which is why Texas oilmen all have their women in burqas. It was oil that led all this and more to be written into the Qur’an many centuries before oil was discovered in Arabia:

ihrc-french-ban-3667-11jan0.jpg

Spencer:

1. The Qur’an likens a woman to a field (tilth), to be used by a man as he wills: “Your women are a tilth for you (to cultivate) so go to your tilth as ye will” (2:223).

2. The Qur’an also declares that a woman’s testimony is worth half that of a man: “Get two witnesses, out of your own men, and if there are not two men, then a man and two women, such as ye choose, for witnesses, so that if one of them errs, the other can remind her” (2:282).

3. It allows men to marry up to four wives, and have sex with slave girls also: “If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, marry women of your choice, two or three or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one, or (a captive) that your right hands possess, that will be more suitable, to prevent you from doing injustice” (4:3).

4. It rules that a son’s inheritance should be twice the size of that of a daughter: “Allah (thus) directs you as regards your children’s (inheritance): to the male, a portion equal to that of two females” (4:11).

5. Worst of all, the Qur’an tells husbands to beat their disobedient wives: “Men are in charge of women, because Allah hath made the one of them to excel the other, and because they spend of their property (for the support of women). So good women are the obedient, guarding in secret that which Allah hath guarded. As for those from whom ye fear rebellion, admonish them and banish them to beds apart, and scourge them” (4:34).

6. It allows for marriage to pre-pubescent girls, stipulating that Islamic divorce procedures “shall apply to those who have not yet menstruated” (65:4).

But it’s all because of oil, you see, and that’s why wife-beating and child marriage are legal in Texas also!

Subject: “FIRES ALL OVER DENMARK’

(from the Danish Press)

images25.jpeg
During the night preceding Friday, February 15, 110 fires were set in Denmark.
From 4 p.m. Friday until 7 p.m. Saturday, 400 fires were recorded.
From 7 p.m. Saturday until 4 p.m. Sunday, 103 fires.
From 4 p.m. Sunday until 8 a.m. Monday the police and fire department listed 88 fires.
From 8 a.m. Monday until 8 a.m. Tuesday, 49 fires in all.
The fires were set in connection with a wave of rioting which broke out in Inner Norrebro (A heavily Moslem-immigrant area–SWG) in Copenhagen on February 10.
SOURCE; The National Police Coordinating Staff.

WHY THE RIOTING?

Many explanations have been offered for why young people, principally (exclusively, Moslem–SWG) immigrants have set fire to cars and buildings:
*Dissatisfaction with the police’s “visitation zones” in, e.g., Norrebro in Copenhagen.
*Several Danish media’s reprinting of the Mohammed drawing where the prophet was depicted with a bomb in his turban.
*The expulsion of two Tunisians who were accused of plotting the murder of Kurt Westergaard (the cartoonist, who now lives in hiding– SWG) from Morgenavisen/Jyllands-Posten (the newspaper that originally published the cartoons–SWG).
*Inequality and discrimination.
*Boredom during winter vacation.
*The police had been accused in Politiken (leading Danish daily, but still the organ of the now-marginalized Socialist Party–SWG) of racist behavior in dealing with immigrants in Inner Norrebro.

french-youth-riots.jpg

Doc Molloy comments:

This totals 750 fires set in one long weekend! Did you see this reported in any U.S. media? I didn’t. How do you like “boredom during winter vacation” as the explanation?! I don’t know of any other European country more generous and welcoming to its immigrant population than Denmark was, but this is the thanks they get. These immigrants cannot tolerate Denmark’s liberal policies (whether press freedom, or clothing-optional beaches, or even education for women), and this is their real grievance. Many Danes still believe they must try harder to make these immigrants feel “more welcome”; but a growing number finally realize they have a serious problem. Copenhagen’s “sister city”, Malmo, at the other end of the bridge to Sweden, already has a Moslem majority, where fewer and fewer ethnic Swedes are willing to live. Unless there is a dramatic change, Western Europe will be part of “Dar Islam” before 2050.

Iran: Chief of moral Police arrested in brothel with six prostitutes

* Prostitution scandals do not only happen in the U.S. In Tehran the Islamic hypocrisy is astounding, but also exhilarating.

* Or perhaps the good fellow was only trying to emulate his prophet:

Narrated Qatadah: Anas Bin Malik (RA) said, “The Prophet (s) used to visit all his wives in a round, during a day and night and they were eleven in number. I asked Anas, “Had the Prophet (s) the strength for it?” Anas replied, we used to say that The Prophet (s) was given the strength of 30 (men)”

* With thanx to Shiva from the Illustrated PIG who has a rather graphic illustration here…

Tehran, 10 March (AKI) – Tehran’s police chief, Reza Zarei, has been arrested after he was found nude in a local brothel with six naked prostitutes, according to report on the Iranian Farda News.

Farda News is a website said to be close to the mayor of Tehran and former chief of the police forces, Mohammed Bagher Qalibaf.

Following the raid, Zarei stepped down from his post as police chief. The news of his arrest however was not reported by any official Iranian news agency.


According to a popular Iranian website Gooya, the order to raid the brothel was given directly by Ayatollah Mahmoud Hashemi Shahroudi, chief of the judicial authorities.

Before he was arrested, Zarei was in charge of the programme for the ‘moralisation of the city’.

It is alleged that in the past six months, hundreds of young people have been arrested in Iran for not respecting the Islamic code of behaviour.

Condhimmi: "I know this much about Islam!"

* Affirmative action poontang once again fails to connect the dots:

“Muslim World Values Human Rights”


(CNSNews.com) – Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says the appointment of Washington’s first-ever special envoy to the 57-member Organization of the Islamic Conference will help to promote principles that Muslims and non-Muslims alike “hold dear,” such as human rights, liberty and the rule of law.

“These are not American values or Western values,” she told OIC ambassadors in Washington on Monday. “They are universal values, values that are lived and practiced by the majority of Muslims in the world, many of whom are citizens of democracies.”

* Delusional beyond imagination. Rice is more ignorant than a brick wall.

* She has overstayed her welcome, she has become unbearable. Her stupidity annoys. Her ignorance is infuriating.

* Another train crash in the making:

Fourteen of the OIC’s 57 members qualify as “electoral democracies,” according to criteria applied by Freedom House in its latest report on freedom in the world. None are Arab states.

And only six of the 57 — Benin, Guyana, Indonesia, Mali, Senegal and Suriname — are deemed “free” according to a Freedom House evaluation that scores nations for both political rights and civil liberties, and classifies them as “free,” “partly free” or “not free.”

* Pakistani’s to the front:

cumber.jpg

Sada Cumber, the man appointed by President Bush to serve as the first U.S. envoy to the OIC, is a Pakistani-born Texas businessman. He would combat misperceptions about the U.S. that are spread by America’s enemies, Rice said. (Sada Cumber is an Ismaili Muslim–a member of a small and historically suppressed branch of Shia Islam./ed)

* Does Hesham Islam ring a bell?

“The notion that the United States is at war with Islam … is simply propagated by violent extremists who seek to divide Muslim communities against themselves, to judge who is and who is not a pious Muslim and to commit any atrocity, even against their fellow Muslims, to impose an intolerant ideology on their societies,” Rice said.

“The OIC plays a vital role in promoting moderation, dialogue and understanding and we welcome the statements that this organization has made in support of those values.”

* Hello, anybody home?

Established in 1969, and with its secretariat based in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, the OIC groups 56 independent countries plus “Palestine.”

The Arab-Israeli conflict has been a top priority, and enhancing Islamic solidarity its stated goal, although over the decades it has also faced frequent crises within its ranks, such as during the Iran-Iraq War, a 10-year conflict between Libya and Chad, and the Persian Gulf War.

In the years since 9/11, the OIC’s focus has increasingly turned to relations between the West and Islam, the campaign against Islamist terrorism, and episodes of what it calls “Islamophobia,” such as the publication by Danish newspapers in 2005 of 12 cartoons satirizing Mohammed.

The OIC holds summits of heads of state every three years, with the 11th due to take place later this week in Dakar, Senegal.

OIC considers terms used by Bush, Rice to be ‘Islamophobic’

United Ummah Against Freedom of Speech:

One of Cumber’s first tasks in his new role will be to attend the conference, which secretary-general Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu says aims to prioritize Islamophobia.

Many Muslims have been angered by the republication last month of the Mohammed cartoons, earlier sketches by a Swedish artist depicting Mohammed as a dog, and a Dutch lawmaker’s plans to release a short film critical of the Koran.

Since the original Mohammed cartoon furor, the OIC has led a campaign to have the defamation of religion and “prophets” outlawed.

It cites as a guiding document the Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam, a controversial text signed by OIC members in 1990 that says all human rights and freedoms must be subjected to Islamic law (shari’a).

The FBI believes its agents still aren’t sensitive enough to Muslims and their culture, so the bureau has extended by “a few weeks” its Islamic cultural “enrichment” training program, WND has learned.

During a recent outreach event at a Washington-area mosque, FBI officials also reassured a large turnout of concerned Muslims that the bureau is not profiling Arabs and Muslims for terrorism, and has made investigating alleged “hate crimes” against them and other minorities “the second-highest priority in the criminal division of the FBI.”

Among the officials who attended the Feb. 8 “town hall meeting” at the large ADAMS Center mosque were Timothy Healy, deputy assistant director for FBI intelligence, and Dave Bennett, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI’s Washington field office.

AUSTRALIA VILE: Labor’s Disgrace Julia Irwin Vilifies Israel; Calls Gaza “Concentration Camp”

83z.jpg43130171_443e35a6bb_m.jpg

Government of caring toads: Peter Garret bends over to kiss Julia Irwin

*

Disgraced Labor MP Julia Irwin, a sucker for every Arab dictator dead or alive, brought even more shame on her party the ALP yesterday by pouring hatred and scorn on Israel.


In her sick mind, Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza is somehow a fiendish trick designed to promote the international Zionist conspiracy and impose “concentration camps” (her words) on Palestinians. A grub like her has no place in Australian public life. Equating Israel’s conduct in the Territories (whether you oppose it or not) with the genocide of the Nazis is a despicable lie with no basis in truth.

Indeed those watching SBS last night would have seen just how liberal, tolerant, inclusive and amazing a society Israel has become. It was a documentary basically about various Air Force pilots who were opposed to the settlements in the Territoris and who refused orders to be involved in policing the area. They were punished, as you would expect them to be in any army, but they weren’t shot or sacked or tortured as might occur in neighbouring countries, they were sent to jail for twenty-one days. I understand that in Australia, there would be a much stricter punishment for disobeying orders like that. Whether vipers like Julia Irwin like it or not, that is Israel. It’s not perfect but it is what it is, an open, democratic, prosperous, ambitious, liberal (even very left-wing traditionally full of hippies and kibbutzniks) sort of place.

Labor MP clashes with PM on Israel

Samatha Maiden, Online political reporter |The Australian

* Did you vote labor? This is what you get:

PRO-PALESTINE Labor MP Julia Irwin has accused Israel of human rights violations and threatened to boycott a vote to celebrate 60 years of the Jewish state.


May marks the 60th anniversary of the modern Israel, an event which the Australian Parliament is due to commemorate in a celebratory vote of support..

Ms Irwin, who clashed in the Labor caucus today with Kevin Rudd over the issue, has told The Australian Online she has yet to decide whether she will turn up to tomorrow’s vote in protest.

Earlier, she questioned the decision to celebrate the anniversary in light of Amnesty International’s warnings of human rights abuses and questioned what the motion would say about Palestine.

In response, Mr Rudd said the decision to mark the anniversary was not in conflict with Labor Party policy that supported peace negotiations based on two states for both for Jews and Palestinians.

Ms Irwin refused to comment on what she said in the ALP caucus but said she could not rule out boycotting the vote.

“I haven’t decided what my actions will be tomorrow,’’ she told The Australian Online.

Asked if Israel was engaging in human rights violations, Ms Irwin said she had no doubt.

“I have been to Palestine. I have seen with my own eyes.”

* And then she quickly ran back to her bulletproof limousine and back to safety.

To her excellent hotel in Israel.

Jewish groups want hate crimes squad

VICTORIAN police are resisting calls by powerful Melbourne Jewish figures to set up a hate crimes squad to tackle the growing number of anti-Semitic attacks.

Richard Kerbaj | The Australian

images24.jpeg

* ‘Powerful Jewish Figure’

* Note the tone of this article: powerful Melbourne Jewish figures”

Police opposed to the idea have accused Jewish groups such as the Anti-Defamation Commission – which keeps tabs on anti-Semitic violence – of exaggerating the number of attacks to justify greater taxpayer-funded security measures.

svnixon_wideweb__470×2760.jpg

It is believed Victoria Police Commissioner Christine Nixon was approached by Jewish leaders to set up the unit, which would play a similar role to a successful program in NSW.

Senior Victoria Police sources said the Jewish community received more attention and security for its functions and events than other religious and ethnic groups. “They already get great coverage,” one source said. “If the Muslim community was to know to what extent, they would go crazy.”

* Let the ‘Muslim community’ go crazy!

* It just so happens that Islam teaches Muslims to hate and kill Jews. They do it all the time. Besides, have these anti-Semites in the Police force ever considered that their wages are largely paid by these ‘powerful Jewish figures?’

Another source said: “The police hierarchy is forever being bombarded by prominent Jews lobbying to get more resources.”

Jewish leaders, who have stepped up their calls for the squad to be set up at meetings with Victoria Police over the past few weeks, have attacked the force for failing to acknowledge the magnitude of the anti-Semitic violence.

This follows a spate of anti-Semitic incidents, including an attack by a group of footballers on orthodox Jewish father Monachem Vorchheimer as he walked home from a synagogue in 2006.

Bnai Brith Anti-Defamation Commission chairman John Searle accused police of being ignorant to the community’s problems, saying their attitude could lead to an increase in the number of anti-Semitic attacks, which were at a record high last year, with 638 incidents recorded nationwide.

“There is no exaggeration of the figures,” he said. “The suggestion that the figures have been ramped up or that they’re bogus in any way just to get a bit more police attention is absurd, and I’m disappointed that such a suggestion would be made.”

Between 1989 and 2005, an average of 85 anti-Semitic incidents was annually recorded in Victoria, according to researcher Jeremy Jones, who compiles figures for the Executive Council of Australian Jewry.

He said the average incidents rate increased to 185 and 171 in 2006 and last year respectively. The Melbourne-based ADC puts last year’s figures at 119.

Incidents last year included nine physical attacks and 21 “missile attacks”, bottles and eggs thrown at community members. But most of the incidents, 53, were verbal.

The Australia/Israel Jewish Affairs Council’s executive director Colin Rubenstein also urged police to rethink their position on the proposed unit.

NSW Police appointed a temporary co-ordinator last June to liaise between community groups of various religions and backgrounds.

Senior Pakistani Newspaper Editor Wants To Nuke Kashmir

* These people have issues! Islam is a cult for the criminally insane…

“We Should Not Hesitate To Use Nuclear Weapons to Take Kashmir from India”

In an interview on the Waqt television channel, that was published by themainstream right-wing Urdu daily Roznama Nawa-i-Waqt, senior Pakistani newspaper editor Majeed Nizami discussed Kashmir’s importance to Pakistan, called it “the jugular vein” of Pakistan, and added that Pakistan should not hesitate to use nuclear weapons to take it from India.

Nizami is editor in chief of both Roznama Nawa-i-Waqt and the English daily The Nation, as well as managing director of the Waqt television channel. Nizami articulated his views in an interview on Waqt, and the interview was reported by Roznama Nawa-i-Waqt.

The following is a summary of and excerpts from the report of the interview. [1]
Roznama Nawa-i-Waqt quoted Nizami as saying: “It is better to die fighting than to die from famine. Kashmir is our biggest issue, and showing flexibility on this matter is tantamount to treason. Anyone who shows flexibility on the issue, I will consider a traitor.”

Nizami noted that Pakistan founder M. A. Jinnah had described Kashmir as Pakistan’s shah-e-rag (“jugular vein”) because all water comes to Pakistan from Kashmir.

According to the report, Nizami said that U.S. think tanks are predicting that Pakistan will become another Somalia by 2018-19, and that India too wants to dismantle Pakistan. He said, “In fact, in 1947 itself [the year Pakistan was created out of India] India planted the time bomb of Kashmir in our foundations.”

He added that the U.N. resolutions about Kashmir should not be forgotten, and that “no matter what the United States says about it, we should wait no longer for Kashmir’s independence.

“Nizami said that his Waqt TV was, like the entire Nawa-i-Waqt group, the torchbearer of Nazaria-e-Pakistan (the ideology of Pakistan) and stood for the Pakistan envisaged by M. A. Jinnah and Islamist poet Allama Iqbal.

He said, “The establishment of an Islamic welfare state in Pakistan is our objective, and to achieve this objective we will use Waqt television, like the Nawa-i-Waqt newspaper.”

Jordan: Islamic ‘activists’ to sue over published cartoon

AMMAN, Jordan (AP) – A group of Islamic activists in Jordan says it plans to file lawsuits against nearly 20 Danish newspapers and magazines for republishing a cartoon of the Prophet Muhammad.

The group says it also plans to sue the editor-in-chief of the Danish newspaper that first published the drawings in 2005 and the daily’s cartoonist.

Last month, Denmark’s leading newspapers reprinted one of the 12 original cartoons after Danish police said they had uncovered a plot to kill the cartoonist. The papers said the reprint was meant to promote freedom of speech.

The group says it will file the lawsuits in Jordanian courts because the country’s penal code says publicly slandering religious figures is an offense that carries up to three years in prison.

Islamic leader Sheikh Raed Salah: Jewish Temple never existed

* from JP via JW

* Of course. No reason why it should have, since, after all, even long before the Temple was built, Abraham was a Muslim (Qur’an 3:67).

* Note also this Sheikh’s blood libel. “Arab leader denies temple ever existed,” from the Jerusalem Post (thanks to JW):

****

The al-Aqsa mosque was never the site of a Jewish temple, Sheikh Raed Salah, the head of the Islamic Movement’s northern branch, said Monday during a press conference he convened in Jerusalem to respond to voices calling for the expulsion of Israeli residents of the city who participate in terror activities against Israel.

*
“Those calling for the expulsion of Palestinian residents of east Jerusalem are hysterical and stupid and belong in the trash can,” Salah said at the conference.

He went on to deny any Israeli or Jewish historical claim to the city, denying that there ever existed a Jewish temple on the Temple Mount.

“The claims of the Jews are big lies and they have no right to any speck of dirt here,” he said. […]

“I think that we are at a critical time. We believe that al-Aqsa is in danger and that it is under occupation, and we believe that Jerusalem is in danger because it is under occupation,” Salah said. “Jerusalem is not only houses – it is faith, it is history, it is a culture, it is a present, a future and an eternal right that we will not relinquish.” […]

During his sermon in Jerusalem’s Wadi Joz neighborhood on February 16 of last year, Salah urged supporters to start a third intifada in order to “save al-Aksa Mosque, free Jerusalem and end the occupation.”

Salah’s speech also attacked Jews, saying, “They want to build their temple at a time when our blood is on their clothes, on their doorsteps, in their food and in their drinks. Our blood has passed from one ‘general terrorist’ to another ‘general terrorist.'”

* Blood libel:

He also said, “We are not those who ate bread dipped in children’s blood”.

A KRuddish quest for true blue Muslims

Richard Kerbaj | The Australian

Mainstream Muslim?

*

KRuddish image improvement for Muslims? 

Hat tip Mullah

* Some of us are still looking for that mystical ‘moderate’ Muslim, while the KRudd government, in typical progressive fashion, storms ahead as the trail blazer of multiculti-diversity engineering:

SPORTING figures, academics and mainstream Muslims will be sought out by the Rudd Government to help recast the overly religious image of Islamic Australia.

A new-look Muslim advisory body is being considered in a bid to help dismantle the stereotypical picture of Islam, despite infighting – fuelled by ideological rivalries and conflicting egos – racking the former government’s board.

And the Rudd Government will also consider reviving the Council for Multicultural Australia – featuring leaders from a cross-section of ethnic backgrounds, including the Jewish and Muslim communities.

* Damn! The Howard government had a least enough sense to move away from that multiculti crap. Now KRudd wants to bring it back…

The previous government abolished the trouble-plagued Muslim advisory board – set up by John Howard after the London terrorist attacks in 2005 – and the multicultural council after their terms ended in 2006.

But Labor is intent on recasting the two bodies, shifting the focus from the spiritual leaders the Howard government courted – at times with disastrous results – to everyday Muslims.

In the Rudd Government’s first statement on Muslims, Parliamentary Secretary for Multicultural Affairs Laurie Ferguson told The Australian yesterday it was time to tackle the myths surrounding Islam, arguing religious leaders were not representative of the mainstream Muslim community.

“We can’t prescribe how the Islamic community is to organise itself,” Mr Ferguson said. “But we certainly must make sure that the fact there are international tensions and terrorist issues doesn’t kind of stereotype the whole community in Australia.

“A lot of it is about symbolism; it’s about who gets promoted and who gets identified and who gets an option to be seen by Australian society.

“Australia has produced (Muslim) academics, business types, sporting types and it’s often not celebrated enough.”

* Right. What are we doing about the Buddhists, the Hindu’s, the Christians and the Jews then, Laurie? Don’t you think we should start celebrating their achievements before you start throwing more money at the least deserving fringe of society?

British Army builds mosque in Afghanistan

The lead paragraph here says that the soldiers are “building bridges in Afghanistan.” The bedrock assumption here is that the Afghans who come to worship in the mosque will see that the British built it and think, “Say, they aren’t so bad after all.”

And probably some will. But this assumption completely fails to take into account the fact that at least some of the people who go to the mosque, if not a majority, will see this act through the prism of a Qur’anic understanding: “And the Jews will not be pleased with thee, nor will the Christians, till thou follow their creed,” (2:120), so the building of the mosque is just a strategem to that larger end, and the British should still be regarded with suspicion. The jihad ideology and Islamic supremacism, unchallenged, remain in place.

5 US soldiers killed, Shia mosque blown up by army

* Once again we see that mosques are not simply places of worship like churches, synagogues or temples. On the contrary: mosques are centers of subversion, incitement and indoctrination.  Mosques are used for weapon storage and as a refuge for the mujaheddin. Hey, but don’t say I told you so:

 In Basra, the Iraqi army blew up a Shia mosque housing the main headquarters of Thaarallah party, witnesses told Deutsche Presse- Agentur dpa.

The Iraqi army ordered local residents living close to the mosque in Nuab al-Dubat to keep away while it blew up the mosque, the witnesses said.

Security officials told the Voices of Iraq news agency that the destruction of the mosque came after troops found weapons and explosives there.

The leader of the party, Yusif Sinawi, had been arrested in April following clashes between security forces and his guards. He has allegedly been involved in paramilitary activities, killings and abductions in Basra.

Thaarallah was established in 2005 as a local party operating mainly in Basra, 550 kilometres south of Iraq.

He says a community-based approach may be more effective than a hardline approach.

“The problem is that as we repeat that [hardline] approach, what we actually end up doing is exacerbating the problem,” he told tonight’s Four Corners program.

“We set in motion drivers that move us towards greater radicalisation.”

He says currently the police are too willing to use aggressive tactics.

“[Police] feel ‘the more aggressive we can be, the harder we can be, the better’,” he said.

“That is, that it’s better to err on the side of being aggressive than to err on the side of being soft.”
