Blazing Cat Fur : Homeland Insecurity: The IRS is diligent to a fault when it comes to
vetting conservative groups applying for nonprofit status.
But it's out
to lunch when vetting employees posing security risks. While the Internal Revenue Service was investigating Tea Party patriots
in the run-up to last year's presidential election, it dispensed with
basic background checks and hired a convicted Islamist traitor as a

an al-Qaida terrorist suspect, reportedly now works for the deputy IRS

Feel good story of the day - Hamas fighter killed in bomb-making accident
Members of Hamas's al-Qassam Brigades in Rafah, December 2011
Blazing Cat Fur A member of Hamas’s armed wing was killed Saturday and six more Hamas
members were wounded in an explosion as they were learning to make
bombs, the group said.
The man killed in the blast, Ibrahem al-Ghoul, was reportedly a field commander in Hamas’s Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades. “The explosion occurred during a training session in bomb-making,” said a
statement from the Izz ad-Din al-Qassam Brigades, the military wing of
the Islamist Hamas movement that controls Gaza. The blast took place at a house in the southern town of Rafah, on the Egyptian border. Earlier, witnesses had said that most of the injured, including two seriously hurt, were “activists.”

Muslim Rapper Praises Toulouse Killing of Jewish Children
Times of Israel : A French watchdog group filed a complaint this week against a rap artist it accuses of glorifying the anti-Semitic murderer Mohammed Merah.

Turkey Frees Men Who Tortured Protestant Missionaries to Death
The Sun Daily : ANKARA: A Turkish court has freed five men accused
of torturing and murdering three Christian missionaries in 2007, after
the suspects' time in detention while on trial exceeded new legal
limits, local media said Saturday.
The men walked free from their high-security prison in the eastern city of Malatya on Friday, according to Dogan news agency.
German missionary Tilmann Geske and Turkish converts Necati Aydin and
Ugur Yuksel had their throats slit in April 2007 after being tied up
and interrogated about missionary activities.The three victims were members of the tiny Protestant community in the conservative city.
The trial of the five men accused of the attack is still going on seven years later. Under a new law passed by the Turkish parliament last month, the
detention limit for suspects on trial who have not yet been convicted
was lowered to five years, paving the way for the five accused to be
released on bail.

Gatestone Institute : "In Iran, they hang innocent young people in groups in front of their families.... To stay in power, the Islamic Republic is killing so many people in one day that they have run out of space for them? My God!" — Shahrokh Zamani, Political prisoner, Iran.
Shahrokh Zamani, sentenced to 11 years in prison on charges of "spreading propaganda" and "participating in illegal organizations" for attempting to build a Trade Union for him and his fellow painters, is presently serving his time in Rajai-Shahr prison, known for its devastating conditions and inhumane treatment of prisoners.
In October of 2013, without notice, the prison authorities decided to add six months to Mr. Zamani's existing sentence for the vague charge of "insulting the Supreme Leader-Ali Khamenei."
The Islamic Republic is killing so many people in one day that they have run out of space for them? My God! If you do not object to all these killings, you, too, are responsible; you, too, have blood on your hands.
As courts of the Islamic Republic largely ignore international legal standards, judges, mainly Islamic clergy with no training in law, do as they please, including arbitrarily extending prison sentences for perceived infractions, presumably just to punish a prisoner further.
Mr. Zamani was most likely disciplined for contacting international human rights organizations and reporting the grotesque human rights abuses inside Iran's prisons. Read it all here......

Everybody hates Israel. That is not just accepted wisdom, it is a reality that chokes all rational debate on the conflict between Israelis and Palestinians. There are exceptions, of course, such as Canada, but most of Western Europe has slipped from support for Israel to support for the Palestinian cause, as if both sides might not have valid claims to the disputed land.
Most Americans are enthusiastic about Israel, but the U.S. government under Barack Obama, has, in recent years, shown increasing antagonism. Unsurprisingly, not a single Muslim nation likes Israel at all.

Observers France 24: Photo of the destroyed mausoleum in the city of Tal Maruf, sent in by our Observer Mohamed Issam. Jihadist fighters have destroyed a mosque in northern Syria, which
to them represented a heretic form of Islam.
These jihadists, who are
part of the extremist group Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (known
as ISIL) attacked the mosque after taking over the Kurdish city of Tal
Maruf in late February.
The city of Tal Maruf is home to several religious institutions: a
mosque, a mausoleum containing the tombs of five imams, and an institute
of Arabic and Islamic studies.
These structures were all built by
Sheiks Muhammad and Motaa Khaznavi, Kurds of Turkish origin that settled
in Syria after World War II. The Sheiks were followers of Sufism, a
mystical branch of Islam. Prior to the Syrian war, Tal Maruf drew
students from all over Syria as well as neighbouring countries who
wished to study Naqshbandi, a branch of Sufism popular among Arabic,
Kurdish, and Turkish Muslims.

China says station jihad murderers wanted to carry out jihad abroad
Jihad Watch : This
Reuters article follows the standard mainstream media practice of
couching all Chinese reporting about jihad activity in China as Chinese
government claims, as if it were rather unbelievable that China could be
facing a jihad threat.
After all, who ever heard of a Muslim minority
in a country agitating for a separate Islamic state and committing acts
of jihad terror in service of that goal?
(Pay no attention to the
Philippines, Thailand, or to similar jihad violence in Nigeria, Syria,
etc.!) Note also the use of the all-purpose sobriquet “restive” for areas
where jihad activity is common. In mainstream media reports, Xinjiang is
restive, southern Thailand is restive, Mindanao is restive, Nigeria’s
Kano state and other areas are restive, etc.
It’s their standard Homeric
epithet for places where Muslims are committing regular acts of
violence in the name of Islam. “China says station attackers wanted to carry out jihad abroad,” from Reuters, March 5 :
Pakistan: Jihad terror leader thanks “brave man” who offered three sons for jihad
Jihad Watch : “US has offered a $10 million bounty on Saeed, who lives as a free
man in Lahore.”
That fact alone is enough to establish that Pakistan is
not really an ally of the United States, and that all the billions of
dollars of taxpayer money that Bush and Obama have given to the
Pakistanis to fight terrorism has been wasted — and, as has been noted
many times by many sources, much of it has gone to the jihadis
The governments of the West determinedly insist
that every jihad attack has nothing to do with Islam, even when the
perpetrators invoke Islamic texts and teachings in order to explain and
justify their actions.
The FBI has scrubbed all mention of Islam and
jihad from counter-terror training materials. The mainstream media
portrays jihad attacks as the fault of their victims, and writes
handwringing stories about the fear of a “backlash” against innocent
Muslims. Meanwhile, the jihad continues.
Sudanese Muslim cleric: “The shedding of the blood of infidels is for the sake of purification and security”
Jihad Watch : Al-Jazouli quotes the Qur’an: “Fight them until there is no more
strife and Allah’s religion prevails” (8:39).
He says that shedding the
blood of Infidels in jihad is a way to prevent strife and create order.
This is in line with the classic Islamic supremacist idea that once
Sharia prevails, peace will reign and strife will cease — and hence
bloodshed to attain that goal is laudable.
Will “moderate” Muslim spokesmen from the U.S. such as Hamas-linked
CAIR’s Ahmed Rehab be jetting over to Khartoum to explain to al-Jazouli
that jihad is really just getting the kids to school on time?

Blazing Cat Fur : Count
me among those — a dwindling minority, I'm afraid — who think that
politics should end at the water's edge.
No one, Republican or Democrat,
ought to take pleasure at the spectacle of America's foreign policies
failing and the perception of America as a hobbled giant. That is, self-evidently, what we're seeing: Russian boots are on the
ground in Ukraine. North Korea is firing missiles. Iran's negotiators
are playing high-stakes poker, while the U.S.-led side doesn't seem to
know a flush from a straight.
In Syria, Iran's proxies confront al Qaeda forces (forces the administration two years ago congratulated itself for having defeated) while the much-ballyhooed agreement to remove chemical weapons has stalled.
Hard-won gains in Iraq have been squandered. There's a real possibility that the Taliban will reclaim Afghanistan once American troops depart. Venezuela is in turmoil. China is acting the bully in Asia.
As threats and crises multiply, what is President Obama doing? He's proposing to reduce the size and strength of America's military to pre-2001 levels.
The acting out and vitriolic language against Israel that so often
defines campus anti-Israelism may make the activists feel good about
themselves for striving for social justice, but, as journalist
Khaled Abu Toameh has contended, these are hollow efforts, that
“[i]nstead of investing money and efforts in organizing Israel Apartheid
Week, for example, the self-described ‘pro-Palestinians’ could dispatch
a delegation of teachers to Palestinian villages and refugee camps to
teach young Palestinians English.
Or they could send another delegation
to the Gaza Strip to monitor human rights violations by the Hamas
authorities and help Palestinian women confront Muslim fundamentalists
who are trying to limit their role to cooking, raising children and
looking after the needs of their husbands.”
What was Abu Toameh’s
conclusion about this misdirected effort to support the Palestinian
cause? “What is happening on the U.S. campuses,” he wrote, “is not
about supporting the Palestinians as much as it is about promoting
hatred for the Jewish state. It is not really about ending the ‘occupation’ as much as it is about ending the existence of Israel . . ,” and “we
should not be surprised if the next generation of jihadists comes not
from the Gaza Strip or the mountains and mosques of Pakistan and
Afghanistan, but from university campuses across the U.S.”

Theaters screening ‘Noah’ should be ‘destroyed’: Azhar scholar
So do not expect to see this movie anytime soon in Malaysia!! They are plain bloody jealous as there is no one in the Islamic world who can come up with a movie like that, for instance 'The Son Of God', they just love to shove their belief system down the throats of others, who do not believe in their faith. The Cairo Post : CAIRO: Darren Aronofsky’s biblical 2014 movie titled “Noah,” scheduled for release in Egyptian theatres on March 26, is already raising controversy among religious scholars for its depiction of Prophet Noah.
Many Islamic conservatives frown upon depicting prophets in art, with one religious scholar demanding that theaters screening the movie be “destroyed.”
Mahmoud Mehanna, member of Al-Azhar’s Senior Scholars called on authorities to “destroy” any movie theatre that screens “Noah” and “not simply close it down,” in press statements on March 4.
Mehanna condemned the depiction of prophets in art, saying it was religiously forbidden, blasphemous, and would not be allowed by Al-Azhar.
“The Senior Scholars should call for an urgent meeting to discuss the matter and sue movie theatres because prophets, their voices, and even their shadows cannot be depicted … Prophets are holy people,” Mehanna told Youm7. Read it all here......

careful reader will remain unaware of the many contradictory verses in

with pedestrians -- and perfect for Michael Stürzenberger’s purposes.
Hand balled into a fist, he paces back and forth and screams, “The Koran

office of the Christian Social Union (CSU), the Bavarian sister party of
Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union. But since 2012 he has been active in a splinter party called Die
Freiheit (The Freedom), of which he was elected federal chairman three
months ago. He preaches hate against Islam and compares the Koran to
Hitler’s Mein Kampf. If Stürzenberger gathers enough signatures for a citizens’ initiative

Blazing Cat Fur : Teachers
in some remote areas claimed they are being threatened at gunpoint by
students who receive low grades or fail altogether, Al-Hayat reported on
With arms easy to obtain in the Kingdom, many students have acquired
weapons that they will not hesitate to point at their teachers. “The remote areas were famous for its hospitality and ethical values but
these benevolent traditions have now given way to violence against
teachers, especially from students,” said one schoolteacher who did not
want his name published. The teacher said many students believe it is “manly” to humiliate teachers in front of others. The teachers asked education authorities to spread awareness among students on the importance of respecting their teachers.
Helicopter carrier built by the French for Russian navy gets first test run
The Vladivostok helicopter carrier
Blazing Cat Fur : A French-built warship designed to strengthen Russia's ability to deploy
helicopter gunships, troops and tanks is preparing for its first test
The test of the Vladivostok helicopter carrier comes just as Western
powers threaten economic sanctions in the hope of reining in Russian
President Vladimir Putin's military threat to Ukraine. The warship is part of a €1.2billion deal that marked the biggest-ever
sale of Nato weaponry to Moscow - a deal that raised eyebrows in Russia
and the West when it was struck in 2011. The French government's priority is reviving the economy and battling unemployment, and the deal with Russia underpins some 1,000 jobs.
A. A world where the United States government and its military, supplied by corporations you find distasteful, responds to aggression and provocations through shows of force and military interventions. These interventions — sometimes on a large scale and sometimes on a small scale — inflict regrettable but inevitable collateral damage on civilians.
These actions are ones that in the past you have labeled “imperialist” and “aggressive” and that prompt you to lament that the world is being run by “cowboys” and — the post-millennial all-purpose pejorative label — “neocons.”
B. A world where the United States government and its military do not respond this way, and disputes about territory, ideology, and power beyond our borders are hashed out by the Russians, the Chinese, the Iranians, the Pakistanis, the Saudis, various jihadist factions (including those so violent and bloodthirsty that not even al-Qaeda wants to be associated with them), terror-for-hire groups like the Haqqani network, and anyone else who wants in on the brawl.

Georgetown U seminar: Fear of Robert Spencer, fear of Jihad Watch
Jihad Watch : Daniel
Martin Varisco and John Esposito are afraid.
They are very afraid. What
are they afraid of? Me. And this website. And yet while they could try
to put their fears to rest by doing one simple thing, that remedy is the
very one they fear to take.
I laughed more than once reading “Preaching ‘Islamophobia’ to the Choir at Saudi-Funded Georgetown,” by Andrew Harrod at FrontPage
today, which provides an in-depth look at the abject fear of the
“Islamophobia” mythmakers, and the corner into which they have painted
Harrod attended the “Islamophobia” seminar on which I
published a report from another attendee here.
“Audience questions, however, focused on Spencer,” Harrod reports:
“Varisco discussed his refusal to debate Spencer as ‘someone who just
hates Islam,’ yet claimed that in any hypothetical encounter he ‘would
beat the whatever out of him.’” Yet Esposito “sneered” that I “wrote
‘best-selling books’ while discussing worries about Spencer’s
popularity. Noting the influence of popular culture, Esposito complained
that ‘Islamophobic websites score very, very high.’”
