No Atheists
In A Foxhole
“When you're left wounded on

Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,

Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,

And go to your God like a soldier”

“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.”

“Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.

“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,

for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”

“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .”
“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

“Nobody ever defended anything successfully, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.

“Fixed fortifications are a monument to the stupidity of man."
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.

The Soldier stood and faced God

Which must always come to pass

He hoped his shoes were shining

Just as bright as his brass

"Step forward you Soldier,

How shall I deal with you?

Have you always turned the other cheek?

To My Church have you been true?"

"No, Lord, I guess I ain't

Because those of us who carry guns

Can't always be a saint."

I've had to work on Sundays

And at times my talk was tough,

And sometimes I've been violent,

Because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny

That wasn't mine to keep.

Though I worked a lot of overtime

When the bills got just too steep,

The Soldier squared his shoulders and said

And I never passed a cry for help

Though at times I shook with fear,

And sometimes, God forgive me,

I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place

Among the people here.

They never wanted me around

Except to calm their fears.

If you've a place for me here,

Lord, It needn't be so grand,

I never expected or had too much,

But if you don't, I'll understand."

There was silence all around the throne

Where the saints had often trod

As the Soldier waited quietly,

For the judgment of his God.

"Step forward now, you Soldier,

You've borne your burden well.

Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,

You've done your time in Hell."

The media portray Israel as an all-white colonialist state. What’s the real story?
Friday, July 25, 2014
National Review : Mainstream-media outlets in the West love to run photographs of Palestinians, typically looking sympathetic in the ruins of bombed-out buildings.
On the rare occasions when editors include photos of Israelis, the images bear a striking similarity to one another: All the people in them are white. In reality, Israelis — including thousands of soldiers in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) — are not uniformly white or even Jewish.
Consider the commander of the Golani Brigade, one of the country’s elite infantry units, currently fighting in Gaza as part of Operation Protective Edge. Colonel Rasan Alian is an Arab Druse who has served in the IDF for over two decades. Recently wounded in the eye and hospitalized, he returned to the front lines as quickly as he could to lead his men.
In Alian’s own words, quoted in the Israeli press, “I want to go back to Gaza, and get to as many terrorists as possible.”Do you find it intriguing that an Arab abhors Hamas and has spent 20 years of his life defending the Jewish state? Well, CNN doesn’t. Its investigative journalists prefer to malign Israelis as “scum.” Apparently Rasan Alian just isn’t a compelling story.
Or what about Chief Warrant Officer Baynesian Kasahun and Staff Sergeant Moshe Malko, two of the Israeli soldiers tragically killed in combat? They are both black. In fact, peruse the entire list of those who have given their lives to stop Hamas’s reign of terror. There is a lot of diversity there.From all the photos in the New York Times over the past decade, you would never know that more than 125,000 Ethiopian Jews live in Israel, and many of them have served in the IDF.
Or that, in addition to the Druse, large numbers of Bedouins volunteer to join the Israeli army, even though they are exempt from conscription. Or that Israel and the IDF boast Jews of Middle Eastern descent.

Hamas’s Triumph The terrorist group continues to succeed in libeling Israel and stirring anti-Semitism globally.
National Review : Hamas, with perhaps unwitting help from President Obama, is achieving its war aim: to legitimize Islamic supremacism and Jew-hatred and take it global.
Jews are no longer safe in Europe or even in some places in the U.S. Who now recalls that when Hamas was elected, the world responded with disgust? Hamas was on everyone’s terrorist list. Flailing, the European Union, Russia, the United Nations, and the United States asked Hamas to recognize Israel, renounce terror, and agree to live by previous agreements between Israel and the Palestinian Authority.
Hamas refused. Nevertheless, its image is much improved.Hamas enjoys killing Israelis and Jews — “By God, we will not leave one Jew in Palestine” one of its leaders, Abdel Aziz Rantisi, told Al Jazeera — but thanks to Israel’s self-defense, opportunities for that pleasure are limited. Hamas has successfully terrorized southern Israel (and more recently, central Israel) with its deliberate missile attacks on civilians, and they take satisfaction in that.
But their chief aim and greatest victory is in forcing Israelis to kill Palestinians. It’s almost a matter of indifference to Hamas whether a dead child is an Israeli killed by a Hamas rocket deliberately aimed at a village, or a Palestinian child killed because Israel returned fire and the launcher was located in a kindergarten. If it’s the latter, the child’s image becomes part of the psychological war on Israel.

Netanyahu Is Winning
National Review : As Clausewitz famously noted, “War is the continuation of policy by other means.”
Correspondingly, Israel’s military campaign in Gaza has had two objectives. First, to degrade and deter Hamas rocket teams. Second, to weaken Hamas as a political actor. On both counts, Israel appears to be finding success.
Rocket strikes from Gaza are decreasing in frequency, and Hamas is suffering major losses. Yesterday, 150 Hamas fighters surrendered to Israeli forces in the strategic Gaza–Egypt border town of Rafah. Most significantly, however, Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas is signaling a major split with Hamas.

Hamas’s Useful Idiots
National Review : Sound bites are usually meant to obfuscate as much as clarify.
Rarely is one so incisive as the line uttered by Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu the other day about the difference between Israel and Hamas: “We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.”
This is the ground truth of the latest Gaza War that gets obscured by the relentlessly repeated stark disparity in casualties between the Gazans, hundreds of whom have died in the conflict, and the Israelis.
Each civilian death in Gaza is a tragedy, but who is ultimately responsible? The moral calculus here is simple. Hamas precipitated the war and persisted in waging it even when Israel was willing to accept an Egyptian offer of a cease-fire. Hamas hides its rockets in schools and places its command bunkers under hospitals. It wants war, and it wants civilian casualties.
Joseph Stalin infamously said that one death is a tragedy, a million is a statistic. Hamas is happy with either a tragedy (the four kids killed on the beach by Israeli shells last week) or a statistic (the climbing civilian toll), so long as it is death and so long as it can be used in the propaganda war against Israel.

Law Exonerates a Murderous Rapist Father
Raymond Ibrahim: I first heard of Little Lama’s tragedy in February 2013 while teaching in Saudi Arabia.
Her story still fills me with sadness because of the evil some men can inflict on others, and anger due to the light sentence some of them receive for committing such atrocities.  For those unfamiliar with Lama’s story, this five year old little girl was raped, tortured, and beaten to death by her father, Fayhan al-Ghamdi, a well-known Muslim preacher who appeared regularly promoting Islam on Saudi television.
This tragic story began in the summer of 2011, when Little Lama, whose parents were divorced, visited her father in Riyadh for what should have been a joyful two week holiday.  Sadly for Lama, her father defied a court order granting Lama’s mother custody of her till the age of seven, and kept her despite the numerous pleas of his ex-wife. 
In December of the same year, Lama’s mother was informed by the Riyadh police that her daughter was in critical condition at the hospital as a result of the physical abuse she suffered at the hands of her father.
In Riyadh, Lama’s mother was told by police officials that her ex-husband admitted beating Lama with cables and a cane because he doubted his five year old daughter’s virginity.  The beating was so brutal that Lama was admitted to the hospital with extensive bruising and burns, a crushed skull, a broken back, ribs and left arm, and a torn off fingernail.  
As if the above beatings weren’t enough, Fayhan al-Ghamdi also raped his daughter till her rectum was torn open, which he then attempted to close by burning it. The agony Little Lama suffered at the hands of her father sent her into a coma, where she remained until October 2012, at which time the remaining life in her fragile little body was extinguished and her soul found its way to heaven.

Members of the Orchestra staged a walkout! Can you imagine this, if a Christian was to do this in a Muslim country? Probably lynched.
Queen Beatrix of Holland attends an Orchestral Concert.
The Conductor, who just happens to be Muslim, proceeds to give the Queen a lecture on the "beauty" of Islam.

Then the members of the Orchestra staged a walkout!

Sudanese Christian woman who escaped apostasy death sentence meets with Pope Francis
++ Papa 30 min con Meriam,'grazie per tua testimonianza' ++Jihad Watch : “Francis thanked Meriam, who was accompanied by her husband and two small children, for her ‘testimony of faith’ and ‘perseverance.’”
A Vatican spokesman said that Francis wanted the meeting to be a “sign of closeness to all those who suffer due to their faith and practice of their faith.”
One may hope that his encounter with Meriam Ibrahim will lead the Pope to reconsider his benign and counterfactual view of Islamic law, and to realize that her death sentence for apostasy was based on Muhammad’s words and universally held principles of Sharia. “Meriam lands in Rome, meets Pope Francis,” ANSA, July 24, 2014:

Reporters tell of Hamas attacks from civilian areas, get threats
Mideast Israel PalestiniansJihad Watch : Hamas appears to be trying desperately to keep the truth from getting out.
It is getting out nevertheless, but Hamas need not fear: the United Nations and the mainstream media will continue to cover for them and demonize Israel.
“Gaza reporters’ tweets: Hamas using human shields,” by Lahav Harkov, Jerusalem Post, July 24, 2014: Several journalists from around the world reported seeing rockets fired from civilian areas in Gaza in recent days, and received threatening tweets in return accusing them of “informing” the IDF.
On Wednesday, Peter Stefanovic of Australia’s Channel Nine News tweeted: “Hamas rockets just launched over our hotel from a site about two hundred metres away. So a missile launch site is basically next door.”

IDF calls out UN for lying about Gaza civilian casualties
hamas-koran-bomb-beltsJihad Watch : The UN has abandoned any semblance of working for peace and trying to maintain harmony among nations.
Their hatred of Israel has overridden everything else the organization does and once stood for. “IDF Calls Out UN for Lying About Gaza Civilian Casualties,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, July 24, 2014:
Israel is calling out a United Nations aid agency for falsely claiming that the Israeli Defense Forces did not permit civilians to evacuate a Gaza school where 15 people were killed today.
The U.N. Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) laid blame for the civilian deaths on the IDF, claiming it never received approval from the IDF for an evacuation from the facility.

9 Things You Need To Know About Hamas — Straight From Its Charter
Daily Caller : Before you comment on the latest conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza, you really have to read the charter upon which the terrorist group Hamas was founded. To understand Israel’s enemy in Gaza, you have to know why the group was constituted. And it wasn’t constituted to negotiate a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Hamas was founded in December 1987. In August 1988, it issued a covenant outlining its mission. The covenant has never been renounced by Hamas, even though some try to claim it is now merely a historical artifact.

Here are nine key takeaways about Hamas, taken straight from its charter.
1.) Hamas isn’t looking to negotiate a peace deal with Israel. It wants to destroy Israel. Quoting Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna, the charter reads: 
“Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.”

Islamic State torches 1,800-year-old church after expelling Christians
ISISburnschurchJihad Watch : “Friday at noon was the deadline for Christian families to meet ISIS’s demands:
Convert to Islam, pay an anachronistic Islamic tax for non-Muslims known as jizya, leave Mosul, or be killed. But the day before the final exodus, Christians were informed jizya was no longer an option.
The order came to convert, leave, or die.”
This “anachronistic Islamic tax” is actually in the Qur’an, which no Muslim would describe as anachronistic: “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).
“ISIS Torches 1800-Year-Old Mosul Church After Expelling Christians,” by Adam Chandler, The Wire, July 22, 2014 : ISIS, which recently rebranded as the Islamic State, has solidified its control over Iraq’s second-largest city by imposing Sharia law and expelling Christians who won’t convert to Islam. The end of last month marked the first time a mass wasn’t held in the city in more than 1600 years. Then, matters got worse. From the Daily Beast

Christians who fled Mosul say jihadis made them leave most belongings behind, stole what they took along. And there are so many bleeding hearts for Gaza?
ChristianfleeingMosulJihad Watch : The jihadis of the Islamic State believe that the possessions of the Christians belong to them by right, either as the spoils of war or as the poll tax (jizya) mandated by the Qur’an:

“Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (Qur’an 9:29).

Many of the Christians said they had to leave most of their belongings behind and that gunmen had stolen much of what they did manage to take along. The video shows Iraqi Christians recuperating from their ordeal of fleeing their home towns, gathering together in a communal area and sharing in some bread and water.

Sharia Lebanon: Muslima from Australia facing jail for adultery
MahassenIssaJihad Watch : “Her husband’s family in Sydney has welcomed her being charged and wants the mother of two children, aged six and nine, to be jailed.
Ms Issa, 29, travelled to Tripoli on June 20 to see her new boyfriend after recently separating from her husband. She was about to return home on the weekend when she claimed she was contacted by Lebanese police informing her she had been charged with adultery.”
But Lebanon’s Muslims are moderate, so she only faces a six-month jail sentence, rather than facing being stoned to death. “Sydney mum Mahassen Issa charged with adultery while on holiday in Lebanon,” by Ashlee Mullany, The Daily Telegraph, July 24, 2014 :
A DESPERATE Sydney mother is pleading for help from the Australian government after she was charged with adultery during a short holiday in Lebanon. Mahassen Issa’s lawyer said last night she would face court in Tripoli, Lebanon, today and could face six months jail if convicted. Her husband’s family in Sydney has welcomed her being charged and wants the mother of two children, aged six and nine, to be jailed.

Undermining an Ally Obama is subverting Israel.
National Review : Important columns by former attorney general Michael Mukasey and Caroline Glick make the point that in Israel’s defensive war against Hamas, the main thing to focus on is not the missiles; it’s the tunnels.
Perhaps more significantly, they demonstrate that the Obama administration, in its mulish appeasement of the Muslim Brotherhood-Sunni supremacist axis that even Islamic governments (indeed, even the Saudis) are shunning, is subverting a golden opportunity to achieve decisive victory over Hamas – the necessary precondition if there is ever to be a stable Israeli-Palestinian settlement.
Writing in the Wall Street Journal, Judge Mukasey explains that Hamas’s strategic plan for jihad against Israel hinges on the large and sophisticated network of tunnels into Israel that the terror organization built while ruling Gaza during the years since Israel’s 2005 evacuation. While much attention has been drawn to “Iron Dome,” the Israeli air defense system that has responded to Hamas rocket-fire, the trigger for the Israeli ground offensive was more likely the challenge posed by the tunnel network.
That challenge, Judge Mukasey writes, “became obvious on Saturday when eight Palestinian fighters wearing Israeli military uniforms emerged from a tunnel 300 yards inside Israel and killed two Israeli soldiers in a firefight.” He elaborates:

Remembering Patton’s tactical brilliance by Victor Davis Hanson
National Review : Nearly 70 years ago, on Aug. 1, 1944, Lieutenant General George S. Patton took command of the American Third Army in France. For the next 30 days they rolled straight toward the German border.
Patton almost did not get a chance at his summer of glory. After brilliant service in North Africa and Sicily, fellow officers — and his German enemies — considered him the most gifted American field general of his generation.
But near the conclusion of his illustrious Sicilian campaign, the volatile Patton slapped two sick GIs in field hospitals, raving that they were shirkers. In truth, both were ill and at least one was suffering from malaria.Public outrage eventually followed the shameful incidents.
As a result, General Dwight D. Eisenhower was forced to put Patton on ice for eleven key months. Tragically, Patton’s irreplaceable talents would be lost to the Allies in the soon-to-be-stagnant Italian campaign. He also played no real role in the planning of the Normandy campaign.
Instead, his former subordinate, the more stable but far less gifted Omar Bradley, assumed direct command under Eisenhower of American armies in France.

A Christian Genocide Symbolized by One Letter
National Review : There is a mass exodus of Christians from the Iraqi city of Mosul, the second largest city in Iraq.
The Muslim fanatics who have taken over the city, calling themselves the Islamic State, issued an ultimatum to the city’s Christians earlier this month, saying that if they did not leave by Saturday, July 19, they “must convert to Islam, pay a fine, or face ‘death by the sword.’”
As of Tuesday, most of the city’s estimated 3,000 Christians had fled.
Further, the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, had marked homes and businesses owned by Christians with a red, painted ن (pronounced “noon”), the 14th letter of the Arabic alphabet and the equivalent to the Roman letter N. The ن stands for Nasara or Nazarenes, a pejorative Arabic word for Christians.
The ن is now being shared on social media as a symbol of solidarity with the Iraqi Christians forced to flee their homes. The Catholic blog Rorate Caeli has wrote, the Islamists “mean it as a mark of shame, we must then wear it as a mark of hope. . . . You may kill our brethren and expel them but we Christians will never go away.”

What to Do after MH 17 If Russia was involved, as seems likely, we need to acknowledge and stop their brutality
National Review : Consider what we know so far.
First, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 was shot down by a missile team operating in separatist-controlled territory proximate to Ukraine’s Russian border. Rebels in this area have a recent record of engaging aircraft.
Second, Ukraine’s government has limited military presence where MH 17 was lost. Third, multiple sources (admittedly of varying reliability)have linked the attack to pro-Russian rebels. Fourth, it takes more than a thug with a grudge to knock down a plane flying 33,000 feet above the Earth.
As I’ve explained before, any antiaircraft engagement, let alone one at such altitude, takes “the collection and application of intelligence, the patience to hold fire until the critical moment, and the use of Russian surface-to-air” capabilities. The Donetsk rebels are agents of Russian policy. If they are responsible for downing Flight MH 17, Russia will bear significant culpability.

Malaysia Flight Shot Down U.S. intelligence tracked missile launch.
National Review : A surface-to-air missile shot down a Malaysia Airlines flight in eastern Ukraine today, killing all 285 passengers aboard, U.S. intelligence officials have told the Wall Street Journal.
A Ukrainian official has accused pro-Russian separatists in the area, where the Ukrainian government has been trying to suppress militants over the past few months, of using a SA-17 “Grizzly” missile to shoot down the plane. The militants have denied shooting it down. Reportedly, all three sides of the conflict — the Russian government, the Ukrainian government, and the Russian-backed rebels — have SA-17s.
American intelligence agencies told the WSJ that they aren’t exactly sure where the missile originated, but Fox News reports that they’ve ruled out the idea of its coming from the Ukrainian government. They aren’t shy about the possibility of Russian-government involvement: “If the separatists shot it down, it couldn’t have been done without Russian assistance,” an official told the WSJ.
The Kyiv Post reports that the Ukrainian state intelligence agency, the SBU, has released recordings of Russian-backed Cossack militants talking on the phone 20 minutes after the crash, explaining how they’d shot down a civilian plane. (One of the militants is allegedly a Russian military-intelligence officer.)

Pakistani Diplomats to the UK Accused of Abduction, Rape
Dawn : The British Foreign and Commonwealth office (FCO) disclosed a list of the most serious alleged offences committed in 2013 which included representatives from Pakistan accused of child abduction and rape, according to a report published in The Independent.
The accused men were among foreign diplomats suspected of 14 crimes — who are entitled to diplomatic immunity and thus protected from British law. Two Saudi men were arrested for drink-driving and have escaped prosecution despite the fact that the crime entails brutal lashings in their own country.
A diplomat from Kuwait — where alcohol is banned — was also accused of drink-driving. FCO minister, Mark Simmonds had on Tuesday presented to the British parliament the list of diplomats, who had allegedly committed ‘serious and significant’ crimes. Read it all here...........

ISIL Torch Shia Mosque in Heart of Istanbul
Hurriyet : Members of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) attacked a Shiite mosque in Istanbul last week, a human rights association has claimed in report, refuting official statements about the incident.
On July 8, a fire caused significant material damage at the Muhammediye Mosque in the Esenyurt neighborhood of the city. Three Qurans and a 300-volume hadith collection were destroyed in the fire at the mosque, which belongs to the local community from the Ja’farite school of Shia Islam. Turley’s Human Rights Association (İHD) prepared a report on the incident based on the testimonies of witnesses and official statements.
The findings of the report were announced to the public on July 15 in a press conference at the İHD headquarters in Istanbul’s Beyoğlu neighborhood. The report quoted Seçkin Çengeloğlu, a local police chief, who ruled out the possibility of arson. He described the fire as “a coincidence” that occurred during a burglary in which the clock of the mosque was stolen by a local drug user acting alone. Read it all here.....

The Truth about Gaza - Hamas’s madness must be exposed.
National Review : Israel accepts an Egyptian-proposed Gaza ceasefire; Hamas keeps firing. Hamas deliberately aims rockets at civilians:
Israel painstakingly tries to avoid them, actually telephoning civilians in the area and dropping warning charges, so-called roof knocking. “Here’s the difference between us,” explains the Israeli prime minister. “We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.”
Rarely does international politics present a moment of such moral clarity. Yet we routinely hear this Israel–Gaza fighting described as a morally equivalent “cycle of violence.” This is absurd. What possible interest can Israel have in cross-border fighting? Everyone knows Hamas set off this mini-war. And everyone knows Hamas’s proudly self-declared raison d’être: the eradication of Israel and its Jews.
Apologists for Hamas attribute the bloodlust to the Israeli occupation and blockade. Occupation? There is not a soldier, not a settler, not a single Israeli in Gaza. Does no one remember anything? It was less than ten years ago that worldwide television showed the Israeli army pulling diehard settlers off synagogue roofs in Gaza as Israel uprooted it settlements, expelled its citizens, withdrew its military, and turned every inch of Gaza over to the Palestinians.
There was no blockade. On the contrary. Israel wanted this new Palestinian state to succeed. To help the Gaza economy, Israel gave the Palestinians its 3,000 greenhouses that had produced fruit and flowers for export. It opened border crossings and encouraged commerce.
The whole idea was to establish the model for two states living peacefully and productively side by side. No one seems to remember that simultaneous with the Gaza withdrawal, Israel dismantled four smaller settlements in the northern West Bank as a clear signal of Israel’s desire to leave the West Bank too and thus achieve an amicable two-state solution.
And how did the Gaza Palestinians react to being granted by the Israelis what no previous ruler, neither Egyptian, nor British, nor Turkish, had ever given them — an independent territory? First, they demolished the greenhouses. Then they elected Hamas. Then, instead of building a state with its attendant political and economic institutions, they spent the better part of a decade turning Gaza into a massive military base, brimming with terror weapons, to make ceaseless war on Israel.

Gaza Casualties Mostly Combat-Age Males...
Thursday, July 17, 2014
A post on Facebook showing how a photo of a dying Syrian child on the cover of The Telegraph homepage was being used to portray a Gazan child being shot by Israel. Photo: Twitter / @docnatecohen.Algemeiner : Data published by Al Jazeera on Monday shows that in its ongoing operation in Gaza Israel killed mainly combatant-age males, not women or children, according to CAMERA, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America, contradicting media reports that tried to paint Israel’s Operation Protective Edge as indiscriminately killing civilians.
In a study published on Monday, CAMERA said that a close read of the data “shows that, as in past hostilities, the fatalities are disproportionately [compared to the overall population] among young males, which corresponds with the characteristics of combatants. Males over 40 years old are also disproportionately represented. Some of the fatalities in those over 40 years of age likely represent senior members of terrorist organizations.” Read it all here.........

One Month of Islam in Britain: June 2014
Gatestone Institute : "The guards don't run the prison, Islam does." — Tommy Robinson, upon his release from prison.
"The state is finding it harder to do its most basic duty, which is to protect the public." — UK Home Secretary Theresa May. The court heard how he doused his wife with gasoline and set her on fire. His defense attorney told the jurors, "He wasn't being listened to, he wasn't being obeyed."
Tablighi Jamaat -- a fundamentalist Islamic sect opposed to Western values such as democracy and equal rights, but committed to "perpetual jihad" to spread Islam around the world -- is fighting a no-holds-barred battle to build a massive mosque complex in West Ham, a neighborhood in the East London Borough of Newham. Critics say that attracting investments from Muslim investors is spurring the gradual establishment of a parallel global financial system based on Sharia law.
Islam and Islam-related issues were omnipresent in Britain during the month of June 2014. They can be categorized into three broad themes: 1) The British government's growing concern over Islamic extremism and the domestic security implications of British jihadists in Syria; 2) The continuing spread of Islamic Sharia law in all aspects of British daily life; and 3) Ongoing questions of Muslim integration into British society.

Muslims threaten Istanbul Catholic church: “Go away,” “Turkey is Muslim”
TurkeychurchJihad Watch : Shhhh! Do not speak of this!
“Talk about extreme, militant Islamists and the atrocities that they have perpetrated globally might undercut the positive achievements that we Catholics have attained in our inter-religious dialogue with devout Muslims.” — Robert McManus, Roman Catholic Bishop of Worcester, Massachusetts, February 8, 2013.
Those “positive achievements” don’t include doing a thing to stop this sort of thing, even in modern, moderate Turkey. “Hostilities at Catholic Church in Istanbul, Turkey Leave Parishioners Fearing Worse,” Morning Star News, July 15, 2014:
ISTANBUL, Turkey (Morning Star News) – Members of a Catholic church in Istanbul fear an attack after Muslims verbally assaulted and threatened them during a baptismal service and destroyed church property in the last two months. After two incidents at St. Stephanos Church, parishioners said they are waiting to see if hostilities will escalate into violence during what remains of Ramadan, when religious persecution has been known to increase in Muslim-majority areas.
The annual Ramadan, an Islamic month of day-time fasting, ends in Turkey on July 28. The two previous attacks have caused some members of an already small congregation to stop participating in services, at least temporarily. In May a group of young men under cover of darkness destroyed audio equipment, stole other items and set a fire in the building, and on June 15 Muslim intruders pushed their way into the baptismal service and yelled obscenities, with one brandishing a knife and threatening to stab a parishioner.

Why comparing Israeli and “Palestinian” death totals is misleading
Jihad Watch : The mainstream media is filled these days with “death toll” counts on both sides: “Palestinian” deaths numbering well over 200 now, and Israeli deaths totaling only one — as if this shows that the Israelis are acting unjustly and the “Palestinian” jihadis are innocent victims.
Here are several key reasons why that is not the case. “Five reasons why comparing Israeli and Palestinian death totals is a misleading way to judge the conflict,” by Philip Klein, Washington Examiner, July 16, 2014:
One of the most common and misleading tactics deployed against Israel by its critics is to compare the number of dead Israelis and dead Palestinians, and use the figures to portray Palestinians as victims of Israeli aggression. Vox’s Max Fisher, who is on a campaign to convince people that Israel bears primary responsibility for the absence of peace in the region, pushed the argument this week to show that the conflict was “lopsided.”
The Legal Insurrection blog has rounded up other examples of liberals and critics of Israel making similar arguments emphasizing comparative death totals.

Hamas’s Suicide
National Review : Hamas is an acronym for the Arabic translation of “Islamic resistance movement.” Its logo blends Palestinian nationalism (flags) with the total destruction of Israel (painted green) and the physical-theological liberation of Jerusalem (the Dome of the Rock). The intended narrative is clear: valiant nationalism, geographic liberation, and Islamic purity.
But in reality, Hamas is a movement of totalitarian zealots. After winning elected power in 2006, Hamas proceeded to destroy Palestinian democracy by massacring its Fatah opponents.Since then, it has allowed Gaza to drown in raw sewage and economic collapse. And now, a slave to its own ideological idiocy, Hamas is burying its people in blood.
Over a week ago, Hamas had an opportunity to avoid this conflict. It could have stopped firing rockets into Israel and avoided Israeli military reprisals. Instead, it celebrated the murder of Israeli teenagers, ignored political pressures on Netanyahu, and persisted in its rocket attacks on Israeli civilians. Unsurprisingly, Israel responded with force. Hamas has now doubled down on this strategic stupidity:
Yesterday, after hundreds of punishing air strikes, the group rejected a cease-fire accord brokered by Egypt. Its military wing, made up of the group’s most fanatical followers, promised an “increase in ferocity.” Netanyahu had quickly and publicly accepted that cease-fire, doing so against significant pressure in his own cabinet.

Hamas’s Asymmetric War Killing civilians from behind human shields.
Wednesday, July 16, 2014
National Review : The Palestinian terrorist organization Hamas today refused an Egyptian-backed ceasefire to end its war against the Jewish state.
The hallmark of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge against Hamas rocket fire is the asymmetric nature of its response to Hamas’s attack. Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, neatly captured his country’s dilemma: “We use missiles to protect civilians; Hamas use civilians to protect their missiles.”
Hamas is a kind of Palestinian version of the bloodthirsty al-Qaeda spinoff ISIS. The same anti-Western radical-Islamic nihilism animates Hamas combatants. In a highly illuminating article, Major-General Ed Fitch, who served in the Canadian Armed Forces from 1966–2009, explains the challenges faced by Israel:
“Counter-terrorism has reached a level of complexity, speed, and moral dilemmas the likes of which were unimaginable a century ago. Post-9/11, Western forces operate in highly complex environments, with plain-clothed terrorists embedding themselves among and exploiting their civilian populations.”

Slandering Israel - The Palestinian ‘Genocide’ Lie
National Review : ‘Here’s the difference between us,” Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu explained on Fox News Sunday.
“We’re using missile defense to protect our civilians, and they’re using their civilians to protect their missiles.” It’s a classic talking point. It’s also objectively true, and that truth is very frustrating for Israel’s critics. All one needs to do is delve into the muck of Twitter and read the timelines for such hashtags as #GazaUnderAttack and #GenocideInGaza:
“They’re killing the women and children to ensure there won’t be a new generation of Palestine.” “One Holocaust can NEVER justify another.”And let’s not even talk about the globally trending hashtag #HitlerWasRight. Of course, it’s not just on Twitter. Mahmoud Abbas, the head of the feckless Palestinian Authority, recently condemned Israel for committing “genocide” in Gaza.
For decades, political cartoonists and cartoonish politicians have been jaw-jawing about how Israel now wears the SS uniform. This too is basically a talking point — and a very old one. But this one is plainly a lie. If the Israelis are, or have ever been, interested in genocide, they are utterly incompetent at it. As slanders go, it’s almost funny, like the old paranoid delusion that George W. Bush was simultaneously an idiot and a criminal mastermind.
On the one hand, the Israeli military is supposed to be ruthlessly competent and determined to wipe out the Palestinians. On the other, the Palestinian population has grown more than 100 percent since 1970. The population in the Gaza Strip has grown nearly threefold since 1990. The Palestinians themselves expect the population to double over the next two decades. “Genocide” is a loaded political term, but under any remotely reasonable definition, shouldn’t those numbers be going the other way?

Why don’t the Swedes fear May 13th ?
Malaysian Insider : Look carefully at the photo in TMI.
In the photo, Azizul is smiling.Eldest son Ammar, 12, expressionless, has his left shoulder gripped tightly by the dad who beat him with a rotan in Sweden and was jailed for it. Is Ammar apprehensive of more beatings ahead? Who knows? As far as anyone knows, there are many in Malaysia who believe caning of children is recommended. “Spare the rod and spoil the child.”
But for not praying? Second son Adam, 11, is also expressionless, and also has his left shoulder gripped tightly by Azizul. Azizul is clearly a tactile "hands-on" dad and there are no laws against corporal punishment in Malaysia where rotan plants grow wild. Azizul says he'll never return to Sweden. Take that, Sweden! Eldest child, daughter Aisyah, 14, looks calm. Her rotan-administrator is her mother Shalwati who has been sentenced to Swedish jail till September 29. So she will be "free" till after then. Aisyah holds youngest boy Arif, 7, protectively - she will not let it happen to him, if she can help it.
A strange saga of rotan-wielding normal-looking Malaysians who suddenly found themselves miscreants in far-off Sweden and their weird First World ideas on corporal punishment. Why was there so much fuss over them, one wonders? Malaysians who believe in following laws and rules so much, and who were not above making the laws go their way every once in a while.
Suddenly, coming up against strange foreign law-abiding egalitarian societies where our oft-contrived laws, laws conferring privilege from birth, no longer were any use, where the Police and Judiciary were quite, quite impartial – oh, my God! – a strange, strange feeling of unreality, poor things!

Pallywood: Hamas Uses Horror Movie Still of Headless Girl in Miniskirt to Depict Gaza Casualties on Social Media
Eye On The World : Headless girl in a miniskirt? How many girls wearing miniskirts are there in Gaza? Screenshots and a video are in the link.

(Algemeiner) As Hamas supporters are being called out on Twitter for posting photos of Syrian casualties from 2012 as victims of the Israeli Army in Gaza in 2014, Israel advocacy group StandWithUs on Tuesday posted a clip from Hollywood horror flick ‘The Final Destination 4′ that was used to create another fake that circulated widely on Facebook falsely depicting Israel killing civilians.

The Terror Within: A Survivor’s Tale
The author at a hearing on her case at the Jerusalem District Court, September 18, 2011

Blazing Cat Fur : Held captive to depravity I knelt, gagged and bound, and waited to be beheaded.
I remember the fusion of the fragrant pines and the stench of bile trapped under the rag around my mouth. I remember hearing the songs of the birds and the terrified whimper of my friend.

I remember a bright light; a machete glinting in the sun. Beauty and the beast, sanctity and savagery were the unfathomable backdrop of those moments, an eternal epoch that has not allowed, like other memories, for normative absorption with the passing of time.

I had never contemplated being brutally murdered. Who does? At only forty-six years old even death had barely crossed my mind. It was half an hour of madness so debilitating that even the moments necessary for preparing myself for death were strangled by the dread of the manner of my imminent execution. I recall looking to Heaven and begging the sun not to set, and seconds later witnessing the unthinkable: A human being hacked to death before my very eyes.

German police fear Muslims
German policeJihad Watch : Translated from Welt with the help of Birte and Sandra, via
Police are increasingly complaining about attacks and lack of respect from citizens. A Turkish official from Duisburg tells why migrants are especially problematic.
Multiculturalism has failed. When the patrolman Kalle B. gets out of his patrol car, he must be ready for anything. It is mostly minor incidents, but the police commissioner from Duisburg can quickly end up in an exceptional situation.
Even the slightest occasions can lead to life-threatening situations: traffic checks, background checks, recording of accidents, everyday business — everywhere there are dangers for civil servants. …
Often, the police had to withdraw because the situation became too dangerous and the reinforcements are delayed. “It is becoming increasingly aggressive in some districts. You think twice whether you should control the traffic. I’ve had moments where I thought, I hope I get out of here in one piece,” says Kalle B.

Sharia Sudan demolishes church, bans construction of new churches
SudanChurchJihad Watch : Islamic law forbids the Christians who live as subjugated dhimmis under the hegemony of the Muslims to construct new churches or to repair old ones, so that their communities will remain in a perpetual state of decline.
“Sudan bans construction of new churches,” Pravoslavie, July 13, 2014 :
Sudan has prohibited the construction of any new church in the country which has been under an Islamic regime since 1989. The Sudanese Minister of Guidance and Religious Endowments Shalil Abdullah announced that the government will henceforth not issue permits for the building of churches in the country.
Minister Shalil Abdullah told the press on Saturday that the existing churches are enough for the Christians population remaining in Sudan after the secession of South Sudan in 2011. He pointed out that South Sudan is now an independent country with a majority of its people being Christians, and that the number of Christians still in Sudan is small.

Israel attacked on 4 fronts, 3 of which it previously withdrew from for “peace”
Jihad Watch : Hamas-militants-via-AFPReuters reported today that “at least one rocket fired from Lebanon hit northern Israel on Monday….The rocket was fired from the area around the southern city of Tyre, Lebanese security sources said.”
AFP noted that “a rocket fired from Syria hit the Israeli-occupied sector of the Golan Heights on Sunday.” Rockets from Gaza continue to hit Israel despite the Israeli defensive actions.
And according to Al Arabiya, “Egyptian security thwarted on Sunday an attempt to launch two rockets from Sinai at Israel.” Israel withdrew from southern Lebanon in May 2000. Prime Minister Ehud Barack’s government thought that the withdrawal  would show that Israel was serious about making peace, and would bring to an end the relentless attacks against Israel at the United Nations and in the international media.
Israel withdrew from Gaza in September 2005. Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s government thought that the withdrawal would show that Israel was serious about making peace, and would bring to an end the relentless attacks against Israel at the United Nations and in the international media. Israel withdrew from the Sinai Peninsula by 1982 as part of the Israel-Egypt Peace Treaty resulting from the Camp David Accords.
Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin’s government thought that the withdrawal would show that Israel was serious about making peace, and would bring to an end the relentless attacks against Israel at the United Nations and in the international media. Israel carried out all three of these withdrawals in pursuit of peace. But peace never came.

Bangladesh: Muslims attack Catholic convent, beat and try to rape nuns
Nuns2Jihad Watch : Because the nuns are Infidel women, they can lawfully serve as “captives of the right hand” (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 33:50) for Muslim men.
The Egyptian Sheikh Abu-Ishaq al-Huwayni declared in May 2011 that “we are in the era of jihad,” and that meant Muslims would take slaves.
In a subsequent interview he elaborated: Jihad is only between Muslims and infidels. Spoils, slaves, and prisoners are only to be taken in war between Muslims and infidels. Muslims in the past conquered, invaded, and took over countries. This is agreed to by all scholars—there is no disagreement on this from any of them, from the smallest to the largest, on the issue of taking spoils and prisoners.
The prisoners and spoils are distributed among the fighters, which includes men, women, children, wealth, and so on. “Bangladesh Christians in uproar over convent attack and assaulted nuns,” Catholic Online, July 14, 2014 :

Somali convert in Sweden: Sweden might experience a bloody civil war

Jihad Watch : MonaWalter I met lovely Mona Walter at a press conference in the Danish parliament a short time ago. A Swedish Ayaan Hirsi Ali in her own way. Being a convert in Islamized Sweden and even speaking out publicly about it and against Islam is exceedingly brave. Via, translated from Uriasposten:

She lives in Gothenburg and came to Sweden from Somalia at age 20 in 1994 … Immediately after her arrival, Mona Walter – that is her name – was visited by local imams, who explained to the young woman that she had cover her body and visit the the mosque more often.
There, she heard how the learned men preached hatred of Swedish society and holy war against the infidels. She was disappointed and angry. She wanted to be a Swede, she wanted to be integrated, and she married an ethnic Swede and broke out of the ghetto and converted to Christianity. But today she fears for her daughters’ future. Not in Somalia, but in Sweden.

Friday, she visited Copenhagen during the presentation of Lars Hedegaard’s book Muhammad’s Girls, now published in Swedish, which tells a broader story about women’s low status in Islam and the high levels of violence and rape that follow from this. …

Mona Walter has no doubt that Sweden will be forced into a bloody civil war within a decade or two, if a public debate does not take place, and if it does not become possible to criticize the insane mass immigration to Sweden from Muslim countries.
On the one hand, negative sentiments against Muslims will grow; on the other hand, the proponents of Islam and the gangs will get stronger.

There is no moral equivalency between Israel and Hamas
New York Post : Amid the recent troubles between Israel and the Palestinians, many Americans and media commentators are drawing disturbing lines of parallelism between the two societies, asserting a false moral equivalency to the actions of each.
In essence, the claim goes like this: “Both sides are fighting each other with similar degrees of violence; both treat each other equally badly; each side is equally to blame for the violence, and they just can’t come together.” That notion that there is a moral equivalency between the defensive and targeted actions that the rule-of-law-based Israel is compelled to take, and the proactive and indiscriminate actions that hate-based organizations like Hamas takes, is completely unfair, unfounded and infuriating to supporters of Israel — with good reason.
In fact, there is no moral equivalence between the actions and reactions of Israel and Hamas and the Palestinian community to the violence that has occurred. Two glaring examples stand out. The first revolves around the difference between Israel’s and the Palestinian community’s reactions to the horrible kidnappings and coldblooded murders of four boys, three Israeli and one Palestinian.
No doubt the loss of these children is one beyond words. Both incidents were abhorrent. But the reaction on both sides was not the same. How did Hamas and too many diverse parts of the mainstream Palestinian community respond to the kidnap and murder of three young Israelis? They cheered. The official Hamas spokesman called the kidnappers “heroes.” The mother of one of the suspected kidnappers, Abu Aysha, said, “If he [my son] truly did it — I’ll be proud of him till my final day.”
And is it no wonder, given the vitriolic hatred of Israel that has been preached in textbooks and schools to two generations of Palestinian children. Such propaganda has been propagated by not only Hamas, but by the Palestinian Authority, and has created a perverse mythology throughout Palestinian society that calls suicide bombers “martyrs” and extols kidnappers and murderers as heroes.

Israel in a Morally Sick World - The Left sides with theocracy in the Mideast.​
National Review : Let’s drop the names “Hamas” and “Israel” and make a list of the characteristics of two imaginary warring entities. We’ll call them Entity A and Entity B.
Entity A : Declares that its raison d’être is to annihilate Entity B. Sends missiles to explode in the most populated parts of Entity B in order to kill as many civilians there as possible. Uses families and individual civilians as human shields to protect its own leaders from attack. Tortures and kills domestic political opponents.
Has no political or religious freedom and has no freedom of speech, press, or assembly, and no independent judiciary. Is a theocracy. Violently oppresses gays. Saturates its education and airwaves with a demonic hatred of Entity B. Rated a 6 by Freedom House in its 2014 report on freedom in the world. Seven is the worst possible rating. Entity A ranks 6 in freedom, 6 in civil liberties, and 6 in political rights.
Entity B : Recognizes the right of Entity A to an independent existence. Has never begun a war with Entity A. Has never targeted civilians in Entity A. In fact, it has sacrificed soldiers in order to avoid killing Entity A civilians. Domestic political opponents — including even supporters of Entity A — not only have freedom of assembly, press, and expression; they have political parties with representatives in Entity B’s parliament.
Has a completely independent judiciary and freedom of the press, assembly, and religion. Allows gays full civil rights. Has innumerable human-rights groups dedicated to the welfare of people belonging to Entity A. Has no education or broadcasts comparable to the daily hate in Entity A. Its Freedom House rating is 1.5 in freedom (1 is the best possible); 2 in civil liberties; 1 in political liberties. So, then, with which entity does nearly every government in the world side? Entity A.
