From Pakistans National Assembly Today:
Our ‘Moderate Pakistani Allies’ are seething:
ISLAMABAD: The treasury and opposition members in National Assembly (NA) Wednesday have made it clear on US that one billion Muslims will turn into suicide bombers if the holiest places of Makkah and Madina are attacked and warned Vetican City will not remain secure if any such threat is materialized.
They said this unanimously while participating in debate on foreign policy. Opposition legislator Ghulam Murtaza Satti said US was pursuing double standards. Those talking of launching any military offensive against Makkah and Medina are accursed. This will not happen nor will we allow it to happen.
Treasury member Rozina Tufail said Benazir Bhutto was striking deal with government and was seeking guarantee from US. If US presidential candidates are giving offensive statements then our candidates can also say that Vetican be attacked during the election campaign in the upcoming elections “, she added.
JUI-S legislator Hamid ul Haqqani said Muslim Ummah was facing the situation the sketch of which was presented by the last prophet Hazrat Muhammad (PBUH) 1400 years back.
Treasury member Ejaz Chaudhry said US was not friend of any one. ” We will teach the lesson to US if it dares to come forward to attack upon us. Americans are coward nation and they can do nothing. Army should not target their brethren. US aid is like killer disease AIDS We curse it. The whole nation does not want US aid. Those who are targeting humanity and justice are terrorists. Those who are engaged in freedom war are freedom fighters. US ship is close to sink. It is hurling threats like a coward.
Looks like Tancredo hit a nerve…

UK: Whatever it takes to shut up the whistle blowers:
Attempted Censorhip under Gordon Brownnose
Police and prosecutors have made a formal complaint to the broadcasting watchdog, Ofcom, over a Channel 4 programme about extremism in mosques which allegedly “completely distorted” the views of those involved.
The Green Road Mosque in Birmingham was one of those featured in the programme
The complaint was made after the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) concluded there was insufficient evidence to bring a charge against the broadcaster under the 1986 Public Order Act, following an inquiry by West Midlands Police.
The CPS also found there was not enough evidence to support charges against those featured in Undercover Mosque, which was shown in the Dispatches slot in January.
Police expanded the initial inquiry into those featured in the programme to investigate those who made it.
In a joint statement, the force and the CPS said a formal complaint about the documentary had been lodged with Ofcom.
This prompted a robust response from Channel 4, which said: “We believe the offensive views expressed by the people revealed in the programme speak for themselves. We didn’t put these words into people’s mouths and all extracts were carefully contextualised.
“The West Midlands Police have provided no evidence whatsoever to support their allegations.”
The question is: Who instigated this, how corrupt and infiltrated is the police and will this intimidation attempt prevent further investigative reporting?
UK Police: Hate Preachers Sermons “Taken out of Context”…
Taken out of context?Â Here are a few quotes from the documentary, explain to me how these could have been taken out of context?….
Dr Ijaz Mian on the subject of non-muslim laws: “You cannot accept the rule of the kaffir [non-Muslim], We have to rule ourselves and we have to rule the others”
Abu Usamah saying of apostates: “Whom ever changes his religion from Al Islam to anything else kill him”.
Abu Usamah speaking on the deficiency of women’s minds: “Allah has created the woman, even if she gets a PhD, deficient. Her intellect is incomplete, deficient. She may be suffering from hormones that will make her emotional. It takes two witnesses of a woman to equal the one witness of the man.”
Praises the killer of a British soldier serving in Afghanistan, stating “The hero of Islam is the one who separated his head from his shoulders.”
Sheikh Al Faisal: “You have to bomb the Indian businesses, and as for the Jews you kill them physically”
Advocates violent Jihad against the non-muslims and predicting that an army of Muslims will arise against the non-muslims in England.
The British police have not only reported Channel 4 to regulators, but they also decided not to charge any of the preachers.Â How wonderful….
Â Al Bebeeceera sux real big:
“All the speakers featured in the film were offered a right to reply and none denied making these comments, nor have any of them complained to Ofcom to our knowledge.”Â
Kudo’s to Chanel 4 for sticking by its guns.
Saudi Jihad On Free Speech
INVESTOR’S BUSINESS DAILY has a piece on the lawsuit jihad by Saudi terror financier Sheikh Khalid bin Mahfouz, a Saudi billionaire who’s threatened to sue them for good press. After 9/11, dozens of books and newspaper articles cited U.S. government officials and other sources who alleged that bin Mahfouz was under investigation as a “suspected terrorist financier.” Namely, the allegation that he helped fund Osama bin Laden’s operations through Saudi banks and charities. he negative press hurt his family business in the West, and Mahfouz marshaled a team of lawyers to threaten the publishers to retract the allegations and print apologies. Those who didn’t lie down were sued in courts in the U.K., which has more lenient libel laws than the U.S.
Mahfuz is quite successful with his intimidation/blackmail:
