Money v Jihad

U.S. pledges $11 million toward jihadist rehab in Yemen

Crayons, water colors and paper. Spray-cans for the progressives, graffiti  vs jihad?

What could possibly go wrong? Oh, yeah. Jihadists go through the motions and resume the jihad. That’s all. “Indonesia tries rehabilitation to wipe out extremism,” by Anuj Chopra for The National, thanks to JW

Palau gets 250-million dollar aid package from the United States for Gitmo apes resettlement

Palau needs a giant mosque….

Palau had earlier rejected a 156 million dollar offer and the settlement came after the island nation agreed to resettle six Muslim Uighurs who had been held for more than seven years at the US naval base at Guantanamo Bay.

The six arrived in Palau in November. But Johnson said the two issues were not related.  Australia Network News

Fillon’s Feelosophy: “we can’t hurt Muslim feelings…”

But… “Fillon’s letter stressed the need for a consensus and that it was important not to hurt the feelings of Muslims.”

Somewhat mixed signals, in an update on this story. What if standing up for Western values like equality and an open society hurts feelings? “French PM asks government body to study burqa law,” from the Associated Press/JW

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (Reuters) – A suspected suicide car-bomber set off his explosives near a security check-post in the northwestern Pakistani region of Bajaur on Saturday killing 14 people, police said.Pakistani security forces have in recent days stepped up operations against militants in Bajaur, an ethnic Pashtun militant stronghold on the Afghan border, as part of efforts to defeat Pakistan Taliban militants fighting the state.

“It looks like a suicide attack,” said Fazl-e-Rabi, a police official in the region, adding at least seven of the dead were passersby.

“I suspect the number of dead might go up as many of the wounded are in critical condition,” he told Reuters….

Obama Priorities: Gitmo Terrorists  to get swine flu vaccination

Even as some Americans await the arrival of their swine flu vaccines, the Pentagon has decided to vaccinate both soldiers and terror suspects at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba.

There was no word Wednesday on when the the first vaccines would reach the remote base in southeast Cuba.

But U.S. military there were notified late last week that service members would get their H1N1 virus vaccinations first. Private contractors and sailors’ wives and children could get theirs afterward “as the supply permits.”   More

And of course the $ 250 million the Obamessiah  throws his way ‘don’t have anything to do with it.’

 Just like jihad-terrorism is totally un-Islamic, keep repeating it often enough and you start believing it.

“The Uighurs have become “international vagabonds” who deserve a fresh start”-

why in the fukc is nobody asking why they “deserve a new start?” And  why they can’t be brought to justice in China?

Obama Resettling Four Gitmo Detainees to Bermuda…

Uighur

This is on top of the detainees that will be released into another prime tourist destination, Palau. Keep in mind all the Uighurs in Gitmo have acknowledged their connections to high-ranking al-Qaeda leaders like Abdul Haq and Hassan Mahsum while they trained in Afghanistan prior to 9/11……

The Justice Department Thursday morning announced that four of the 17 Uighur detainees held at Guantanamo Bay have been resettled in Bermuda.

Abdul Nasser — speaking for himself as well as Huzaifa Parhat, Abdul Semet, and Jalal Jalaladin — thanked the Bermudan government and people in a statement released by his attorneys. 

“Growing up under Communism,” Nasser said, “we always dreamed of living in peace and working in free society like this one. Today you have let freedom ring.”

The Obama administration put out some seemingly mixed messages on the Uighur transfer, saying that their release to Bermuda would make the US safer, while insisting the government would guard against their travel to the US.

An Obama administration source told ABC News that “the Uighurs will not be able to travel to the United States unless the U.S. government consents in advance.”

Four Gitmo detainees settled in Bermuda

Andrew Bolt – Howard’s Pacific Solution was cheaper

The Wall Street Journal on the price the US paid Palau to take Guantanamo detainees nobody else wants:

MONTHS of moral grandstanding and intense diplomacy are finally yielding dividends: (Barack) Obama has convinced Palau to resettle a small group of the least dangerous Guantanamo detainees. All it took was $200 million in foreign aid to a country with 20,000 residents and a GDP of about $164m. The Uighurs are not America’s problem alone; they were captured during “the good war”, after all. Yet for all Europe’s excoriations of Gitmo as a blight on America, no one jumped at this easy chance to reduce the prison population. According to news reports, the Obama administration asked more than 100 allies (ie, basically everyone) to accept custody. Palau deserves credit for its “humanitarian gesture”, as Palau President Johnson Toribiong called it, though the $200m in aid probably helped. That works out to $11.7m for each detainee.

Connie Levett, in The Sydney Morning Herald in 2007 on the price John Howard paid to send other unwanted guests to Pacific islands – and Christmas, too:

THE federal government’s Pacific solution has cost more than $1 billion over five years, according to a new report. The report, prepared by Oxfam and A Just Australia, which oppose the offshore-processing scheme, calculated it cost more than $500,000 (a) person to process fewer than 1700 asylum seekers in Nauru, Manus and Christmas Island.
