How Nuclear Weapons Can Keep You Safe

How I learned to love the bomb….

On Sept. 24, President Barack Obama will bring together 14 world leaders for a special U.N. Security Council meeting in New York. On the agenda: how to rid the world of nuclear weapons.

Don’t hold your breath…

Newsweep, of course, doesn’t shy away from any stupidity and  even provides a forum for Islamo-agit-prop Fareed Zakaria, who recently told us we should just relax and “learn to live with Islamic terrorism…”


Does your heart bleed already?

For Muslims, backlash fear builds each 9/11

Many in U.S. of Islamic faith still struggle through anniversary of attacks

Associated (with terrorists) Press:

NEW YORK – There is the dread of leaving the house that morning. People might stare, or worse, yell insults.

Prayers are more intense, visits with family longer. Mosques become a refuge.

Eight years after 9/11, many U.S. Muslims still struggle through the anniversary of the attacks. Yes, the sting has lessened. For the younger generation of Muslims, the tragedy can even seem like a distant memory. “Time marches on,” said Souha Azmeh Al-Samkari, a 22-year-old student at the University of Dayton in Ohio.

France accuses IAEA’s El-Baradei of covering for Iran’s nuke program

That’s the same El-Baradei who just recently said the Iranian nuclear threat is “hyped.”

The Obama Effect: Islamic Jihad is so yesterdayish…


The “Obama-effect”…

DALLAS, Sept 9 (Reuters) - The percentage of Americans who believe Islam encourages violence has declined in recent years but remains far above where it was in 2002, while very basic knowledge about the faith has shown modest increases, according to a new survey by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life.

The poll’s findings, released ahead of the eighth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, come against the backdrop of President Barack Obama’s attempts to reach out to the Islamic world and eroding public support for the war in Muslim Afghanistan as U.S. combat deaths there rise to record levels.

Thirty-eight percent of those polled believed Islam was more likely than other faiths to encourage violence, down from the 45 percent who held this view two years earlier.

But that number has fluctuated over the years and in 2002, when it was first asked the year after the Sept. 11 attacks, only 25 percent of the U.S. public said they thought Islam encouraged more violence than other faiths.

Of course Islam is as violent as ever. Some numbers compiled by ROP….

  1. “There is the dread of leaving the house that morning. People might stare, or worse, yell insults.”
    Gee – I’m bleeding all over the floor. How horrific. That’s nothing compared to what the real victims went through. As usual, we are supposed to feel sorry for them. I don’t.

  2. Fareed Zakaria is correct, but of course this is a right-wing blog with a political goal to demonize Islam (the blog-owner does not hide his demand and claim that God gave Israel the right to eliminate ……. ethnic cleans the West Bank).

    Bearing in mind that all you will get from the blog-owner is repetive hate-mongering, the reality for battling radicalism is to a degree deal with them.

    The main ammunition that radical Islamists have is that the West is out to destroy Islam and create another Crusade. Thus their claims to Jihad is based on countering this so-called “war” declared on Islam by the west.

    Thus, the best method for battling them is to simply deal with the Muslim world. Already the speech by Obama in Cairo made a big difference and to a degree helped instigate the reform movement in Iran, because it countered the rhetoric of the existing Iranian regime’s argument about the evils of the West.

    The other point which is more contraversial and Zakaria has understood it is that you will not change radicalism by force and the change in values is always a slow one. Thus for example in the case of Afghanistan, to try and eliminate the leadership of the Taliban and take-out Al Qaeda is fine, but to battle ultra-conservative Islam with all there mixing of local tribal values is impossible. Thus it is better and more effective if simply the most moderate of these utra-conservatives are approached and supported. If the message to all of Afghanistan was that “we respect your right to your opinions and that if you respect our rights”, then the vast majority of Afghans would welcome that and the hard-line and militant Taliban would lose their influence.

    Obama started the process at a global level, stating that the West must accept that there are other views and values in this world and that it is wrong to say that “our way is better”. Also that “to get respect you must give it – and that it goes both ways”.

    He needs to expand on it and it is only a small step in a great rift that was turned into a gaping chasm by the previous Administration’s western-chauvenism.

  3. Solkar – no one, and I mean no one, gives a damn what you think. You’ve been tossed from Canadian Coalition for Democracies, Gates of Vienna, and likely other locations. Your reputation as a troll is widely known.

  4. LMAO jeh, no one? You obviously do.

    Try looking at it this way, were is the CCD forum now? It is closed, why? Because a formal email to the CCD Administration with a copy to the CHRC ensured that it was closed down. Then another email pointing out that the text of the announcement on the closed forum needed to remove the bigoted phrase “jihad-bot” and bingo – which it did. Go figure!

    GoV could not cope with errors being pointed out, so did two evangelical-run blogs and three French speaking pro-jihadist sites.

    I think “troll” is the wrong word, try someone with a sense of civic responsiblity whom points out BS.

  5. Solkar – If it’s true that you sent a formal e-mail to CCD and a copy to the CHRC – it proves what your motivation is – like all other Islamists – to silence those who dare speak out against your ideology, and the violence that goes hand in hand with Islamic Supremacy. However, anything you say is questionable, so I doubt the story. CCD never had any problem handling trolls like you, and had been doing it for years.

    Didn’t you know that the CHRC is self-destructing? I doubt your letter (if there was one), had any impact on either organization.

    GOV banned you because they got bored with your rants, as did I and many others. While the Sheik is having fun with you right now, (and I must admit I have enjoyed watching him play you) – in time that will get tiresome, and you may find yourself sent packing into the blogsphere to annoy someone else.
