The Constitution trumps Islamic law

Except when it doesn’t:

The OIC has perverted the UN to such an extend that any criticism of Islam is now automatically ‘hate-speech’. Under the Obama regime, Mohammedans around the world will be further encouraged to further their goals….

When reading stories about that formerly obscure Florida preacher who wants to mark the ninth anniversary of 9/11 by burning a stack of Qurans, bear in mind that the only law he breaks in doing so is Islamic law. With this in mind, it should become clear that the extraordinary global campaign against this stunt is yet another concerted effort, aided by an army’s worth of useful fools, to bring our constitutional republic into conformance with Islamic law.

Hate crime, hate crime: Unindicted co-conspirator, Hamas linked, Muslim Brotherhood front CAIR is calling for the prosecution “to the full extent of state and federal law” in the case of a burned qu’ran copy. (Atlas Shrugs)   What Law? It’s Free Speech, Stupid

Islam demands “respect” with an intensity and strategic purpose well beyond other beliefs. (Still) don’t believe me? For indelible culture contrast, imagine the worldwide body count in reaction to a hypothetical NEA-funded project entitled “Piss Mohammed,” or the absence of a worldwide body count in reaction to the Army’s actual decision to discard and burn a bunch of Bibles on a U.S. base in Afghanistan last year for fear of offending Muslims in the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan — a land where Christian converts (Abdul Rahman) and promoters of (minimal) women’s rights (Sayed Pervez Kambakhsh) must flee with their lives, by the way.

As we have witnessed in Cartoon Rage, Pope Rage, Commode Quran Rage, “Fitna” Rage, More Cartoon Rage, etc., “respecting” Islam in fact means exempting this religious-political ideology from “slander,” “defamation,” any mockery, criticism, analysis, resistance, denunciation or rejection — or else. And we all know what “or else” means —or else murder and mayhem will convulse some region where Muslims live, leaving behind a permanent threat of death to non-repentant “offenders.”

Diana West: there's a reason "Islam" means "submission"

Diana West: Islam outlaws all the things that allow Bloomberg to tolerate it

Unlimited tolerance must lead to the disappearance of tolerance

By: DIANA WEST Examiner Columnist

Bloomberg: vested interests or just a kumbaya monkey?

“We are Americans, each with an equal right to worship and pray where we choose,” New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg said this week. “There is nowhere in the five boroughs that is off limits to any religion.”

Our founding documents guarantee that – and not just in the five boroughs.

But the unprecedented furor over plans for a mosque complex at ground zero tells us there is a coalescing sense that Islam is more than a “mere” religion as non-Muslims conceive of “religion.” It is becoming clear to people, despite the gag of political correctness, that there’s a reason “Islam” means “submission.”

Islam not only seeks to order the spiritual realm inhabited by a Muslim and Allah, it lays out a doctrine to control every believer’s behavior (down to the most intimate bodily functions) as well as the public life of the collective. Doctrinally, Islam is thus “doubly totalitarian,” in the words of G.H. Bousquet, a leading scholar of Islamic law, in accordance with the body of law known as Shariah.

Under Shariah, freedom of conscience and freedom of speech are outlawed with extreme sanction (those who leave Islam fear death to this day), while non-Muslims and women exist as legal inferiors to the Muslim man. Meanwhile, jihad — holy war to extend Islamic rule — is a sacred command. And I have the books that prove it.

In other words, this isn’t Islam because I say so, but because its sacred, authoritative, mainstream, non-hijacked, untwisted texts say so. It is the religious and political and legal ideology that inspired the al Qaeda killers on 9/11, and it is the religious and political and legal ideology that inspires the mosque complex at ground zero.

And I didn’t come up with that, folks; I just happened to notice, and thought you should know.

Afghanistan: Who's Training Who?

To offer our enemies training and modern weapons in the hope that they will not fall in the hands of the Taliban, or that these trained soldiers will not turn  against their infidel benefactors the moment a rabid mullah fantasizes about a torn Koran, is a monumental folly. One that totally disregards the psyche and the fanatical frenzy of the Muselmaniacs.

Dawa, Uncle Sam Style?

“The Ramadan schedule is kicking us in the butt, but it’s also significant for the motivation and morale of the Afghan soldiers,” says Benchoff, who nightly joins his Afghan counterpart as he breaks fast with a meal of goat and rice. U.S. troops are told to minimize eating and drinking in front of the Afghans, who in turn have offered them instructions on Ramadan’s meaning and practices.

You could almost ask who’s training whom.

Hmm, but don’t they have a ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy?

Dumber than dirt…

A very patient and scholarly Diana West tries to explain to a media pop-tart what Geert Wilders is all about, to no avail.

Very interesting video from the excellent Tundra Tabloids:

(Don’t miss host’s wrap-up equating Islamic imperialism & Western imperialism — the new moral equivalence?)”

The interviewer pretty much symbolizes the gross ignorance of the media in general concerning not only Islam, but of what their own Western culture and values represents. What a pleasure it was to see Diana take this young woman (professional?) by the hand and walk her through the most basic of talking points of why Islam, Islamization and what Europe is facing through mass immigration, is not such a good thing, and that there is no contradiction between believing in free speech, while trying to limit intolerant mobs of people from one’s own shores. Good job Diana, hopefully the lass will think on the things you mentioned. KGS

Am I the only one who got the impression that this interviewer could be more interested in sex, Brangelina & Madonna?

Should Fox News register with the State Department as a foreign agent — an agent of Saudi Arabia?

First off, is that a farfetched question? Not when a leading member of the ruling family of the Sharia-totalitarian “kingdom” of Saudi Arabia, Prince Alwaleed bin Talal, has made himself the second-largest shareholder of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp., Fox News’ parent company.

Just as Steven Emerson believes that American universities using Saudi mega-millions (many from Alwaleed) to set up Islamic studies departments should register as Saudi agents, I believe an American news channel part-owned and part-influenced by the Saudi prince should, too.

Alwaleed’s long march through U.S. institutions is a mainly post-9/11 progression greased by his purchase of about a 5.5 percent stake in News Corp. in 2005, and his purchases, I mean, gifts, of $20 million apiece to Georgetown and Harvard Universities, also in 2005.

There have been other eye-catching displays of Alwaleed’s largesse — $500,000 in 2002 to the Council on American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a Hamas- and Muslim-Brotherhood-linked entity, and a whopping $27 million, also in 2002, to the families of Palestinian “martyrs,” aka suicide bombers. These, along with Alwaleed’s self-described “very close relationship” with Murdoch son and apparent heir-apparent James, a left-wing global-warmist with virulently anti-Israel views, should only deepen Americans’ concerns about Fox’s ties to “the prince.” Recently, Murdoch and Alwaleed have discussed expanding their business relationship through the Murdoch purchase of a substantial stake in Rotana, Alwaleed’s huge Arab media company.

The Ultimate Betrayal

“We were attacked treacherously. We came under fire from everywhere, but the rules of engagement prevent me from doing my job.”

The utterly wrongheaded policy that has American troops in Afghanistan devoting the bulk of their time to hearts-and-minds initiatives and to behaving like social workers is…killing American troops. When America pretends to have no enemies, its enemies do not fall into line and behave accordingly. And yet Americans are not allowed to fight back.

Yet another Which-Side-Is-Obama-On Alert: “US casualties in Afghanistan provoke rage and frustration,” by Jason Gutierrez in the Telegraph/via JW

There should be a full-scale investigation of this in Washington. But there won’t be, because most pols on both sides of the aisle still assume that it would be terrible to stop trying to be buddies to the Afghans and to fight a traditional war. They think we can actually win, i.e., create a stable and secure Afghanistan, by not fighting. Their naivete is probably incurable.

US Marine: “The Rules of Engagement Prevent Me From Doing My Job”


Someday, civilian and military leaders responsible for these rules of engagement, this policy of sacrificing American troops to make the barbarians of Afghanistan “like us” should come before at the very least a Congressional hearing, but at this point an out-for-blood people’s tribunal seems more appropriate. What they are doing to our military, our treasury, our power and our prestige is an unconscionable national betrayal.

The following news story describes the toll these rules, this policy is taking on our bravest young men — amoebas in a petri dish to the mad, see-no-Islam social engineers masquerading as American statesmen and generals.

From the Telegraph:

On a base near Marjah, a Taliban stronghold in Helmand province, Marines are grieving the deaths of a sergeant and corporal killed by the remote-controlled bombs that have become the scourge of the long-running conflict.

Diana West’s Speech in Copenhagen

News first:

Along with Wafa Sultan and Geert Wilders, Diana West spoke at the Free Press Society conference last Saturday in Copenhagen. Many thanks to Steen for the video:

Thanks to Diana for the full text of her speech:


Diana West’s Speech in Copenhagen, June 14, 2009

Americans are proud, and rightly so, of the First Amendment in the Bill of Rights, which, among other things, protects speech from government control. The Amendment says in part: “Congress shall make no law abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press.”

Increasingly, however, Americans seem content to regard the First Amendment not as the fundamental working tool of democracy, but as a national heirloom, a kind of antique to admire rather than put to use. I don’t think many of my countrymen perceive how profoundly their attitude toward free speech has changed. But there is a difference between having freedom of speech and exercising freedom of speech, one that has become glaringly and distressingly obvious to me since September 11, 2001. So, while it is true that the US government is not Constitutionally empowered to make laws that censor Americans, it is also true, I believe, that Americans have come to censor themselves. But why?

Provincial authorities in south-western Afghanistan have thrown thousands of books, mainly about Shias or Shia Islam, into a river.

The Nimroz government said the books, copies of 11 titles, undermined national integrity and could fuel ethnic problems.

Diana West: Time to Pull the Plug on Afghanistan!

West: “Trying to transform Afghanistan into an anti-jihad, anti-Sharia player…is like trying to roll Sisyphus’ rock up the hill”


As we have long noted here, in a state like Afghanistan, the proponents of Sharia will never accept a democratic republic — it’s Islamic law or war. So what exactly are U.S. forces going to accomplish there?  (Or, in the words of Sheik yer’mami: “is it progress if we teach cannibals to use fork and knife?)

“Let Afghanistan Go,” by Diana West, April 23 (thanks to JW):

[…] Don’t get me wrong: If killing small bands of Taliban is in the best interest of the United States, I’m for it. But I do not believe it is — and certainly not as part of the grand strategy conceived first by the Bush administration and now expanded by the Obama administration to turn Afghanistan into a state capable of warding off what is daintily known as “extremism,” but is, in fact, bona-fide jihad to advance Sharia (Islamic law). Anybody remember Sisyphus? Well, trying to transform Afghanistan into an anti-jihad, anti-Sharia player — let alone functional nation — is like trying to roll Sisyphus’ rock up the hill.

This is not to suggest that there is no war or enemies to fight, which is what both the Left and the Paleo-Right will say; there most certainly are. But sinking all possible men, materiel and bureaucracy into Afghanistan, as the Obama people and most conservatives favor, to try to bring a corrupt Islamic culture into working modernity while simultaneously fighting Taliban and wading deep into treacherous Pakistani wars is no way to victory — at least not to U.S. victory. On the contrary, it is the best way to bleed and further degrade U.S. military capabilities. Indeed, if I were a jihad chieftain, I couldn’t imagine a better strategy than to entrap tens of thousands of America’s very best young men in an open-ended war of mortal hide-and-seek in the North West Frontier.

I decided to ask someone with real military experience how we could fend off jihad without further digging ourselves into Central Asia. I called up retired Maj. Gen. Paul Vallely, one of the few top military leaders who talks on the record, to ask for his strategy recommendation for Afghanistan.

“Basically, let it go,” he said.

Find out why. Read it all.

West: Win the "trust" of people who hate us? What?

Appalling Stupidity and Cluelessness  from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs:

American success is not measured  on the ability of U.S. forces to execute their missions, but on the emotional reaction of the average, illiterate, infidel-hostile, modernity-challenged Afghan to those missions.

The always perspicacious Diana West discusses the wrongheadedness of American policy toward the jihadists in Afghanistan: “Win the ‘Trust’ of People Who Hate Us? What?,” by Diana West, February 19. via JW

The buzzword on Afghanistan is “trust.”Having routed the Taliban, liberated millions, midwived a (Sharia-supreme) constitution, assisted in elections, propped up a government and routed the Taliban some more, all the United States needs now to win victory in Afghanistan is to win the “trust” of the Afghan people.
