National Review : There are few things the Left loves more than a college liberal

Al-Qaeda and the Taliban exist because of Ronald Reagan and George H. W.

the various al-Qaeda franchises in Syria, Yemen, and North Africa merely

destruction of ancient — pre-Muslim — world heritage sites? That’s just
collateral damage in the war against Reagan and the Bushes. Hamas,
Hezbollah, and the PLO are easy to peg — Israeli creations, one and all,
existing solely because of the “Occupied Territories.” As for Libya, we
actually put those jihadists in power. But what about Boko Haram?
sure any decent professor can tell me some way we’re responsible for
their atrocities. But that’s just the last few decades. What about tracing further

back to 1913, before the Europeans dominated the Middle East.
the centuries of conflict between Christian Europe and the Ottoman
Empire? Vienna must have richly deserved its sieges. After all,
Europeans launched the Crusades, right? And before the Crusades, when jihadist Muslim armies invaded and

capturing the Iberian Peninsula and threatening modern-day France,
there’s little doubt that they were simply striking out at . . .

‘Eleven Christians Killed Every Hour,’ Says Irish Bishop
Monday, May 18, 2015
Blazing Cat Fur : According to Bishop John McAreavey, the Chair of the Council for Justice & Peace of the Irish Catholic Bishops’ Conference, statistics show that the situation of Christian persecution in the world is far more dire than most people understand.
The bishop called the breadth and scale of the suffering of Christians “unprecedented.”
At least 100,000 Christians are killed every year because of their faith, which amounts to 273 per day, or eleven every hour.
McAreavey said, without mentioning those who are “being tortured, imprisoned, exiled, threatened, excluded, attacked and discriminated against on a widespread scale.”
Geller is the blogger-activist who organized the “Draw Muhammad” exhibition in Garland, Texas, which inspired some DIY jihadists to attack the event. The would-be terrorists chose poorly:
They were cut down by Texas lawmen shortly after wounding a security guard. Let’s hop in the WayBack Machine for a moment. In 1986, the National Endowment of Arts paid about $20,000 for Andreas Serrano’s “Piss Christ.” Serrano peed in a glass, plunked a plastic icon of Jesus on the cross into it, and then snapped a picture. I will say the lighting was lovely. But, as strange as it seemed to the “arts community,” some people were offended.
Speaking of manure, there was the time the taxpayer-subsidized Brooklyn Museum of Art ran an exhibit in which a portrait of the Virgin Mary was partly made of pornographic pictures and elephant dung — because, you know, art.
Pope Francis Did Not Call Abbas an ‘Angel of Peace’ . This post is for all the leftists IDIOTS
National Review : Sunday morning, Americans awakened to headlines proclaiming that Pope Francis had called Palestinian Authority president Mahmoud Abbas “an angel of peace” during an event at the Vatican the day before.
News organizations gleefully printed this claim across newspapers and news sites around the globe. Agence France-Presse’s headline: “Pope meets ‘angel of peace’ Abbas after treaty announcement.” BBC: “Pope Francis calls Palestinians’ Abbas ‘angel of peace.’” The New York Times: “In Vatican, Abbas Is Praised as ‘Angel of Peace."
Even Jonathan S. Tobin of Commentary magazine published a piece entitled, “Sorry, Your Holiness, But Abbas Is No Angel.” Here is what he actually said : As is tradition with heads of State or of government, Francis presented a gift to the Palestinian leader, commenting:
“May the angel of peace destroy the evil spirit of war. I thought of you: May you be an angel of peace.”
Pope Francis had called Abu Mazen a “man of peace” when he visited Bethlehem in May 2014, just as he called the then Israeli prime minister, Shimon Peres, a “man of peace” during his subsequent visit to Jerusalem. The Argentinian pope had then invited both leaders to a prayer vigil for peace in the Vatican Gardens which took place on 8 June that year and was also attended by the ecumenical patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew.

Donplaypuks 1. How is it that despite a Malaysian Malay accountant being murdered in Hong Kong, and the 1983 collapse of Bumiputra Finance Malaysia (BMF) in 1983 and the near collapse of Bank Bumiputra Malaysia Berhad (BBMB), and three senior Bumiputra directors of BMF absconding overseas, you said that no crime was committed in Malaysia, and no one was charged for any crime here? Cost to the Rakyat - RM2.5 billion.
2. How do you justify bringing back into government the forex trader mainly responsible for the Bank Negara Malaysia (BNM) loss of RM 6 billion (some say RM30 billion) and that man today continues to work at a most senior position in the prime minister's office? What about the accounting fraud whereby these losses were netted off against revaluation of BNM's gold and other reserves to show a net gain? Why was there no Royal Commission of Inquiry to determine if fraud was committed and to bring to book those responsible? Cost to the Rakyat - RM6-30 billion.
3. What was your role in the collapse of tin prices and the MAMINCO fiasco in 1981? Cost to the Rakyat - RM1.6 billion.
4. How do you (and Diam Diam) justify buying MAS shares at RM8 when the market price was RM3.68? Cost to the Rakyat - RM1.8 billion plus RM8 billion in bailouts.
5. What was your role in fixing the appointment of judges vis-a-vis Limgamgate and the 2008 RCI, which recommended that the Attorney General investigate you? Cost to the Rakyat - Untold RM billions.
6. How did the railway double tracking project start at RM45 billion, then come down to RM22 billion and for a final bid of RM14.5 billion, when the "entrepreneur" concerned was known to be looking at sub-contracting out the work for RM 9 billion? Cost to the nation - RM5.5 billion.
7. You were the adviser to a national car company which wrote off in 2005 RM348 million on its investment in a motor-bike company, which it sold to undisclosed third parties for 1 Euro. How come you said you were not consulted about this fiasco? Was there fraud? Cost to the GLC - RM348 million.
8. How did so many thousand of Approved Permits (AP) for cars end up cornered by 4 AP Kings? Why did you not monitor your minister, that so-called fraud Iron Lady, RApidfire woman? Cost to the Rakyat - conservatively, RM 30,000 per AP x 1,000AP's per year x 15 years = RM45 billion.
9. How do you justify paying RM1.7 billion to buy out a shipping and logistics concern, you son's Plc, following its torpedoing in the wake of the 1998 Asian Financial Crisis, when it was cheaper to hire ships and tankers in the open market? What "strategic concern" was it that has not survived? Cost to the Rakyat - RM1.7 billion.
Savages destroy a city which predates Jesus by 1300 years by the Islamic State is being called a “war Crime” by archeologists.

Vlad Tepes : The thing is, the Islamic state uses bulldozers and other powerful tools that other people built and invented, and destroy structures that other people built and invented, which 3500 years of human beings have had enough respect for to not destroy these sites, more or less, and then act like this destruction is an accomplishment and a good and noble thing.
No creature with any degree of domestication would do that or even think that way.
The Devil Can’t Beat the Resurrection - For those who have fled ISIS, life goes on in Christian hope
National Review : ISIS is an army of the devil,” Father Dankbar Issa, a Chaldean
monk, tells the charity group Aid to the Church in Need.
of ISIS are sons of the devil. There is no other explanation for what
they are doing to people,” he said just after he celebrated Palm Sunday
Mass in Malabrwan, in northern Iraq.
He and his fellow monks had fled their monastery of St. George as ISIS
captured Mosul last summer.
He explains that displaced families in his
new parish are living in classrooms of the catechism school. The refugee
children can’t go to school — something that greatly worries their
parents, knowing that education is needed to give them options for their
future — but they pray that life in their temporary home will be a
teacher for them.
As it is for us all. While Father Issa worries deeply about the prospects for those
children, their families, and all Christians in Iraq and other embattled
parts of the Middle East, he does not bemoan their lot and is not
bitter. “We Christians were baptized into the suffering of our Lord. So
persecution is something we have to expect,” he told the group.
that Easter, which means life, will be victorious. It gives us hope in
spite of all the difficulties.”
One family in the parish is determined to stay in Iraq, Father Issa
tells the group. He quotes one of the family members: “We will not leave
Iraq. Where would we go? This is our home. We belong here.” Another, a
family of five, headed for Jordan for Easter. They have family in
Australia, and they want to “start a new life there.”
Turks irked at Pope Francis’ referring to Armenian Genocide
Jihad Watch : The
Turks are irked because they have never admitted that their mass murder
of the Armenians was a genocide.
Islamic supremacists never take
responsibility for any evil they have done, or that other Islamic
supremacists have done. It either didn’t happen, or was done by someone
else, or was the Infidels’ fault.
And so the Turks are enraged that Pope
Francis, of all people, actually used the word “genocide” in connection
with what the Ottomans did to the Armenians — particularly at this
time, when the Erdogan regime is rolling back Kemalist secularism and
“Turkey anger at Pope Francis Armenian ‘genocide’ claim,” BBC, April 12, 2015 : Turkey summoned the Vatican ambassador over Pope
Francis’s use of the word “genocide” to describe the mass killing of
Armenians under Ottoman rule in WW1.
The foreign ministry reportedly told the envoy it was “disappointed”
by the comments, which caused a “problem of trust” between Turkey and
the Vatican. Armenia and many historians say up to 1.5 million people were systematically killed by Ottoman forces in 1915. Turkey has consistently denied that the killings were genocide.
The reason for the epidemic of recent child rape crimes
in Britain is not because a bunch of dirty old perves who used to
present It’s A Knockout or who used to be big in hospital radio are still actively engaged in kiddy fiddling.
It’s because of a massive, entrenched cultural problem
whereby, for three decades, gangs of Mirpuri Pakistanis in Muslim
ghettos around Britain have been permitted with virtual impunity to
groom, drug and rape vulnerable, mostly underage white girls.
And the reason they’ve been getting away with it is because almost
all the authorities which should have prevented it happening – from the
local police to the council children’s services to the various
children’s charities – preferred, for reasons of political correctness,
to bury their heads in the sand.
“Reported child sexual abuse has risen 60% in last four years, figures show,” by Alan Travis, Guardian, April 8, 2015:
“Devotion to jihad for the sake of Allah, and the desire to shed blood,
to smash skulls, and to sever limbs for the sake of Allah and in
defense of His religion, is, undoubtedly, an honor for the believer.
Allah said that if a man fights the infidels, the infidels will be
unable to prepare to fight.”
So British authorities appear to be right on top of the threat from
counter-jihad activists and puppies, but jihad terrorists? Give them
free reign! Give them the key to the city! “He’s a terrier not a terrorist!
Eight-month-old puppy Silver banned
from getting close to Cameron over security fear,” by John Stevens, the Daily Mail, April 12, 2015: Eight-month-old puppy Silver was banned from getting
close to the Prime Minister today after he was bizarrely deemed a
security risk. David Cameron greeted voters in the street as he left his speech in Cheltenham to outline Tory plans for inheritance tax.
But aides ordered that the Jack Russell and poodle cross-breed be kept well away from the Conservative Party leader. Owner Sarah Styler was taking Silver for his morning walk when she
spotted TV crews gathered outside the church hall close to her house
where Mr Cameron was giving his speech. Everyone knows that David Cameron is a politically correct PRICK!!
Pakistan: After identifying him as Christian, Muslims set young boy on fire
Jihad Watch : Time
for a new spate of articles about the rise of “Islamophobia” — the
Islamic supremacist propaganda machine has to kick into high gear to
keep on diverting our attention from things like this.
“Young boy set on fire after being identified as Christian,” by Nasir Saeed, PamelaGeller.com, April 12, 2015:
A Pakistani Christian boy has been attacked and set on fire after some young Muslims discovered his religion.
Nauman Masih, 14, was set upon by unknown Muslims who were going to
the mosque to offer their Friday prayers. He was returning from the
tailors when he was stopped by young Muslims and after identifying him
as Christian, they set him on fire.
Nauman gave a statement to the Superintendent of Police (SP) saying that
two unknown Muslims came to him on a motorbike and asked him about his
religion. He told them he is Christian and they started beating him.
When Nauman tried to run away, both boys started following him through
the street before throwing kerosene on him and then setting him alight.
THE TAJ MAHAL IS TEJO—MAHALAYA: A SHIVA TEMPLE BY P.N. OAK — Original Booklet - (30 pages)
Sunday, April 12, 2015
Harekrsna : For detailed proof of this breath-taking discovery, you may read the well known historian Mr. P. N. Oak’s celebrated book titled “The Taj Mahal is a Temple Palace”. But let us place before you, for the time being an exhaustive summary of the massive evidence ranging over 103 points, namely:
1. The term Taj Mahal itself never occurs in any Mogul court paper or chronicle even in Aurangzeb’s time.
2. The attempt to explain it away as Taj-i-Mahal i. e. a crown among residences is, therefore, ridiculous.
3. Moreover, if the Taj is believed to be a burial place how can the term ‘Mahal’ i.e. ‘mansion’, apply to it ?
4. The other popular Islamic explanation is that the term ‘Taj Mahal’ derives from ‘Mumtaz Mahal’—the lady who is supposed to be buried in it. This explanation is itself full of absurdities as we shall presently see. It may be noted at the outset that the term ‘Taj’ which ends in a ‘j’, could not have been derived from Mumtaz ending in a ‘z’.
5. Moreover, the lady’s name was never Mumtaz Mahal but Arjumand Banu Begum alias Mumtaz-ul-Zamani, as mentioned in Shahjahan’s official court chronicle, the Badshahnama.
6. Since the term Taj Mahal does not at all occur in Mogul records it is absurd to search for any Mogul explanation for it. Both its components namely ‘Taj' and 'Mahal’ are of Sanskritic origin. Mahal in Hindu parlance signifies a mansion i.e. a grand edifice. Taj is the popular corruption of the word ‘Tej’ meaning splendour. In no Muslim country from Afghanistan to Abyssinia, is any edifice described as Mahal.
7. The term Taj Mahal is a corrupt form of the Sanskrit term ‘Tejo Mahalaya’ signifying a Shiva temple. Agreshwar Mahadev i. e. the Lord God of Agra was consecrated in it.
8. The famous Hindu treatise on architecture, titled Viswa-karma Vastushastra mentions the ‘Tej Linga’ amongst Shiva Lingas i. e. stone emblems of Lord Shiva, the Hindu deity. Such a Teja Linga was consecrated in the Taj Mahal hence the term Taj Mahal alias Tejo Mahalaya.
Poll: More than half of Americans have unfavorable view of Islam
Jihad Watch : It
is not surprising that Jaweed Kaleem and the Huffington Post would
assume that this unfavorable view stems from ignorance of Islam, or from
the poll respondents’ not knowing a Muslim personally.
No doubt this
will be spun as an example of the success and influence of the nefarious
(and fictional) “Islamophobia industry,” which supposedly churns out
hate propaganda to turn Americans against Islam — for what motive, no
one has explained.
But in reality, Americans who have an unfavorable
view of Islam do so because they see events such as the Boston Marathon
bombings, and the perpetrators’ mother screaming
that America “WILL PAY FOR MY SONS AND THE SONS OF ISLAM.” The
Americans who have an unfavorable view of Islam do so because they see
Muslims all over the world on a more or less daily basis committing acts
of violence and explaining and justifying them by pointing to Islamic
texts and teachings.
They see one of the most brutal, barbaric and
bloodthirsty polities in the history of the world call itself the
Islamic State, and claim to represent Islam in its purity and fullness.
They see all this happening and then people like Jaweed Kaleem and
leading Muslim spokesmen in the U.S. whining about “Islamophobia,”
rather than calling for genuine soul-searching and honest reform within
the Muslim community.
No amount of propaganda blaming all this and more
on “Islamophobes” will convince most Americans to believe Jaweed Kaleem
and the HuffPo in preference to their lying eyes. “More Than Half Of Americans Have Unfavorable View Of Islam, Poll Finds,” by Jaweed Kaleem, Huffington Post, April 10, 2015:
Qur’an read inside Hagia Sophia for the first time in 85 years
Jihad Watch : The magnificent edifice was constructed in the sixth century as a church in the Christian Byzantine Empire and was the seat of the Patriarchate of Constantinople, the former name of Istanbul.
When Ottoman forces under Mehmet II conquered the city in 1453 he ordered the immediate conversion of the Hagia Sophia into a mosque. Islamic minarets were built around its Byzantine dome.
It served as a mosque until after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire when in the mid-1930s the authorities of the new Turkish state under secular leader Mustafa Kemal Ataturk ordered it to become a museum for all.
But under the rule of the Islamic-rooted Justice and Development Party (AKP), co-founded by President Recep Tayyip Erdogan which came to power in 2002, there have been noises about reconverting the Hagia Sophia into a mosque.
Turkish Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc caused a furore in November 2013 when he indicated that he hoped to change the status of the Hagia Sophia, saying it looked “sad” but hopefully would be “smiling again soon”.
Greece reacted furiously at the time, saying such statements “are offending the religious feeling of millions of Christians.”
World Affairs Journal : Clint Eastwood’s new film, American Sniper, is a blisteringly accurate portrayal of the American war in Iraq.
Unlike most films in the genre, it sidesteps the politics and focuses on an individual: the late, small-town Texan, Chris Kyle, who joined the Navy SEALs after 9/11 and did four tours of duty in Fallujah, Ramadi, and Baghdad.
He is formally recognized as the deadliest sniper in American history, and the film, based on his bestselling memoir, dramatizes the war he felt duty-bound to fight and his emotionally wrenching return home, with post-traumatic stress.
The movie has become a flashpoint for liberal critics. Documentary filmmaker Michael Moore dismissed the film out-of-hand because snipers, he says, are “cowards.” “American Sniper kind of reminds me of the movie that’s showing in the third act of Inglorious Basterds,” comic actor Seth Rogen tweeted, referring to a fake Hitler propaganda film about a Nazi sniper, though he backtracked and said he actually liked the film, that it only reminded him of Nazi propaganda.
Writing for the Guardian, Lindy West is fair to Eastwood and the film but cruel to its subject. Kyle, she says, was “a hate-filled killer” and “a racist who took pleasure in dehumanizing and killing brown people.”
The Navy confirms that Kyle shot and killed 160 combatants, most of whom indeed had brown skin. While he was alive, he said that he enjoyed his job. In one scene in the movie, Kyle, played by a bulked-up Bradley Cooper, refers to “savages,” and it’s not clear if he means Iraqis in general or just the enemies he’s fighting.
Pulling the plug might be merciful. It might be cruel. But either way, it’s time to accept the fact that this country is likely to die and that we’ll all be better off when it does.
The Kurds in the north, who make up roughly twenty percent of the population, want out. They never wished to be part of Iraq in the first place.
To this day, they still call the bathroom the “Winston Churchill,” in sarcastic homage to the former British prime minister who shackled them to Baghdad. Since the early 1990s, they’ve had their own government and autonomous region in the northern three provinces, and they held a referendum in 2005 in which 98.7 percent voted to secede and declare independence.
The only reason they haven’t finally pulled the trigger is because it hasn’t been safe; the Turks—who fear the contagion of Kurdish independence inside their own country—have threatened to invade if they did.
The Sunni Arabs in the west, who make up another rough twenty percent of Iraq, aren’t itching for independence necessarily, but they sure as hell aren’t willing to live under the thumb of Shiite-dominated Baghdad any longer.
Millions of them live now under the brutal totalitarian rule of the Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, which has declared its own state not only in a huge swath of Iraq but also in much of northeastern Syria. ISIS either controls or has a large presence in more than fifty percent of Iraq at the time of this writing.
Why was this bound to happen? Because Yemen's Iranian-backed Shia Houthi movement is sweeping across the country in force. And if any two countries in the Sunni Arab world are going to get involved in that fight it will be Egypt and Saudi Arabia, partly because they're Yemen's neighbors and partly because that's how they roll.
Egypt fought a long war in Yemen from 1962 to 1967 and the Saudis invaded Bahrain in 2011 to put down a Shia rebellion against the Sunni ruling house of Khalifa.
Iran has been a regional power since the time of the Persian Empire, and the current revolutionary regime that swept away the Shah in 1979 wants to restore Iran's place as a regional superpower. It's tricky, however.
The overwhelming majority of the Middle East's population is Sunni and Arab while Iran is Shia and dominated by Persians. These ethnic and religious differences mean little to us in the West, but they mean everything in the Middle East.
Iranian city bars Christians from celebrating Easter in churches
Jihad Watch : An
American President who wasn’t a full-on appeaser might have insisted
during negotiations with Iran that there would be no deal unless the
Iranian regime guaranteed the full rights of religious minorities.
“IRAN: Christians barred from holding Easter celebration in churches in
northwestern city,” NCRI, April 7, 2015 (From: The Religion of Peace):
NCRI – In the latest repressive measures taken against
religious minorities in Iran, Iranian Christians in a northwestern city
have been barred from holding Easter celebrations in churches. On Saturday, the Iranian regime’s State Security Forces (police) sent
threatening letters to churches in the city of Urumiyeh warning them
against holding gatherings for Easter celebrations.
They’re just meat to them. Slaves. Using them in public? No problem — they have no rights and no dignity. They are only free today because they were bought back — which will only fuel more kidnappings and ransom demands.
Yazidi girls were snatched from their mothers, sold to IS
fighters, tortured and even raped in public by more than two or three
jihadists at a time before being freed by the Islamic State (Isis) in
northern Iraq, according to harrowing details recounted after their
IS released 216 members of the Yazidi minority who were captured by
the extremist group in the dramatic Sinjar offensive of July 2014 and
brought them to the border with Kurdish-held Kirkuk, in Humayria
Most of the hostages were old women and men, but the group also
included some middle-aged women and 55 male and female children.
Virgin Mary Church in Tel Nasri, Syria before being destroyed
On Easter Sunday itself, as some media reported, the Islamic State destroyed the Virgin Mary Church in Tel Nasri—loosely translated as “Christian Hill”—in northeast Syria. Even lesser known is that other churches and Christians in the Middle
East were attacked during Easter weekend. Take Egypt.
recently decreed that a Christian church should be built in the upper
Egyptian town of al-Our, where 13 of the 21 Christians who were
gruesomely beheaded by the Islamic State in Libya grew up, and where
their families still live. The church was meant to honor them and the
nation of Egypt. But, as always happens in Egypt—that is, as always happens in
practically every Islamic nation in the world—local Muslims rioted and
protested right after Islamic prayers last Friday.
They yelled that
they would never allow a church to be built, that “Egypt is Islamic!”
and that “Anyway, shape, or form, we will take Sisi down!” By night time, Molotov cocktails and stones were thrown at another
Coptic church, cars were set ablaze—including one belonging to a
relative of one of the those decapitated by the Islamic State—and
several people were injured.
On Easter, UK’s Cameron Speaks Up for Persecuted Christians, Obama Tells Christians to be Less Hateful
Raymond Ibrahim : In a world where Western leaders and politicians regularly distance
themselves from their Christian heritage, preferring to tout
“multiculturalism,” United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron’s Easter
message is refreshing.
In a world where Western leaders and politicians regularly distance
themselves from their Christian heritage, preferring to tout
“multiculturalism,” United Kingdom Prime Minister David Cameron’s Easter
message is refreshing.
Among other things, Cameron (see video below) made it a point to say
“that we should feel proud to say, ‘This is a Christian country.’ Yes,
we’re a nation that embraces, welcomes and accepts all faiths and none,
but we are still a Christian country.”
In this context, the Islamic Umma – where non-Muslims are not
“welcomed” or “accepted” — comes to mind: whereas the West, thanks to
its Christian heritage, developed in a way as to be open and tolerant of
others, the Islamic world has and likely will not. In fact, Cameron also urged his fellow citizens to speak out about the persecution of Christians:
We have a duty to speak out about the persecution of
Christians around the world too. It is truly shocking that in 2015
there are still Christians being threatened, tortured, even killed
because of their faith. From Egypt to Nigeria, Libya to North Korea.
Across the Middle East Christians have been hounded out of their homes,
forced to flee from village to village; many of them forced to renounce
their faith or brutally murdered. To all those brave Christians in Iraq
and Syria who practice their faith or shelter others, we will say, “We
stand with you.”
Nathuram Godse, why I killed Gandhi - This is for all those brain washed, leftist, useful idiots who love Gandhi
Thursday, April 09, 2015
Even the judge presiding over the trial G.D.Khosla wrote, “I have no doubt that had the audience of that day been constituted into a jury and entrusted with the task of deciding Godse’s appeal, they would have brought in a verdict of ‘not guilty’ by an overwhelming majority”
Vijayvaani :The official date for the handing over of power was fixed for June 30, 1948, but Mountbatten with his ruthless surgery gave us a gift of vivisected India ten months in advance. This is what Gandhi had achieved after thirty years of undisputed dictatorship and this is what the Congress party calls 'freedom' and 'peaceful transfer of power'.
The Hindu-Muslim unity bubble was finally burst and a theocratic state was established with the consent of Nehru and his crowd and they have called it 'freedom won by them with sacrifice' - whose sacrifice? When top leaders of Congress, with the consent of Gandhi, divided and tore the country - which we considered a deity of worship - my mind was filled with direful anger.
One of the conditions imposed by Gandhi for his breaking of the fast related to the mosques in Delhi occupied by the Hindu refugees. But when Hindus in Pakistan were subjected to violent attacks he did not so much as utter a single word to protest and censure the Pakistan Government or the Muslims concerned. Gandhi was shrewd enough to know that while undertaking a fast unto death, had he imposed some conditions on the Muslims in Pakistan, there would have been found hardly any Muslims who could have shown some grief if the fast had ended in his death.
It was for this reason that he purposely avoided imposing any conditions on the Muslims.
He was fully aware from past experience that Jinnah was not at all perturbed or influenced by his fast and the Muslim League hardly attached any value to the inner voice of Gandhi. Gandhi is being referred to as the Father of the Nation.
But if that is so, he has failed in his paternal duty inasmuch he has acted very treacherously to the nation by his consenting to the partitioning of it. I stoutly maintain that Gandhi has failed in his duty. He has proved to be the Father of Pakistan. His inner-voice, his spiritual power, his doctrine of non-violence of which so much is made of, all crumbled against Jinnah's iron will and proved to be powerless.
Boko Haram Violence: Christians Take Revenge Against Muslims In Nigeria
Blazing Cat Fur : Christians are attacking Muslims in northern Nigeria in revenge for allegedly backing the Boko Haram militant group.
The Nigerian government recently reclaimed some northern territories from Boko Haram, but some Muslim residents said they were afraid to return home because of harassment from their Christian neighbors, according to media reports.
One Muslim said a friend’s wife was found floating in a river with her hands tied behind her back after she tried to hike through a Christian district. Salihi Ateequ, a member of the Adamawa State Muslim Council, said his sister was carrying an infant on her back when she was ambushed by Christians. Both were hacked to death.
“The Christians … believe the Muslims invited Boko Haram to come and kill them,” Ateequ said. “So now it’s vengeance and every Muslim is a target.”
Does Obama speak about Islam differently than how he speaks on Christianity?
This is not about the truth or falsity of his claims.
This is about whether or not the manner in which he speaks about these two subjects reveals an underlying set of feelings or beliefs or values on these two religions. Does he speak about Christianity differently than he does about Islam? If so, in what way?
The Extinction of Eastern Christianity Moves No One in EUrabia
Blazing Cat Fur : The numbers of Christians in the Middle East are dwindling.
In Iraq, there were 1.4 million Christians in 2003 and there are now 270,000. In Syria, they were 1,1 million before the civil war and are now 400,000. Everywhere, from Lybia to Iraq, the Islamic State is beheading Christians or converting them to Islam.
It is a demographic and religious revolution of immense historic consequences.
We talk with Bat Ye’or, the great Jewish historian of Egyptian origin who dedicated many books to what she called “dhimmitude”, the subjugation of minorities (Jews and Christians) under Islam.
What is the situation of Eastern Christianity?
The situation of Eastern Christianity is a tragedy of immense proportions. It entails human sufferings on a traumatic scale.
Even those, like Egyptian President Sisi who would like to help, seem powerless in such dramatic circumstances. As for the West, the ideological and strategic choices it made in the last century incapacitate it and obscure its understanding…
But criticise Christianity — celebrate even the burning of a church — and you’re a “progressive”. The ABC is your friend.
Islamophobia bad; Christophobia good.
Take last week. In the days before Easter, Christianity’s holiest time, no fewer than four Melbourne churches were torched.
The loveliest, Brighton’s Catholic Church of St James, was burned down, its magnificent stained glass, bells and organ destroyed…
…Yet when St James was destroyed, actor Rachel Griffiths was given sympathetic time on Melbourne ABC radio to say how good she felt…
This was not just an attack on a building, but on a community pledged to goodness.
As the St James website reminds parishioners, each have “special talents or gifts ... given to us for the enrichment of the lives of others and so that we can serve God better”.
So “visit the sick and elderly, feed the hungry, teach those who want to learn, console the lonely and sorrowful ...”
Such teachings have already inspired Christians to create the Red Cross, St John Ambulance, Royal Flying Doctor Service, Salvation Army, St Vincent de Paul Society, World Vision and many fine private hospitals, hospices and schools.No, the media looks the other way when Christians, not Muslims, are the victims, and when Muslims, not Christians, are the perpetrators.
Even when the slaughter of Christians is too horrible to ignore, note a telling evasion.
Last week, the day before Easter, gunmen from the Islamist al-Shabab slaughtered more than 140 Christian students in Kenya. Yet on three successive days, the ABC television news reports did not mention the faith of the killers — the critical clue to why they killed only Christians.
Lateline’s first report also refused to identify the killers’ faith and motive.
Is the ABC now so cowed by fear of seeming “Islamophobic” that it cannot even identify a Muslim terrorist by the cheery light of its burning church?
U of Michigan cancels “American Sniper” screening: “Made students feel unsafe”
Jihad Watch : A
movie about an American soldier who fought against Islamic jihadists
made students at the University of Michigan feel unsafe, and so the
screening was canceled.
Imagine if the people that Chris Kyle fought
against showed up at the University of Michigan — would students feel
Would they approach the jihadis and give them hugs and
assure them that they were against “Islamophobia”?
And if they did, what
would the jihadis do in response? “Paddington Bear” is the replacement film, which is fitting for these cosseted, coddled, comfortable, self-deluded children.

Boston Marathon jihad mass murder Dzhokhar Tsarnaev guilty, faces death penalty - A time to celebrate
Jihad Watch : Even
his defense attorney admitted he was guilty. The question now is how
much of the taxpayers’ money this jihad killer will be allowed to waste
in the future. “BREAKING: Tsarnaev guilty in Boston Marathon bombing,
faces death penalty,” Washington Times, April 8, 2015:
Dzhokhar Tsarnaev was found guilty Wednesday as jurors
now contemplate whether or not the Boston Marathon bomber gets the death
Of the 30 counts he faced, 17 carried the death penalty. Tsarnaev and his older brother, Tamerlan, planted two pressure-cooker
bombs near the finish line of the Boston Marathon bombing on April 15,
2013, killing three people and injuring more than 260.The FBI posted photos of their faces on TV and social media in the hunt for the bombing suspects.
As the two Chechen brothers fled, they shot an MIT police officer and
carjacked a separate vehicle. The car’s driver escaped at a gas
station. Tamerlan died in a shootout with police.
The younger Tsarnaev was captured in Watertown hiding in a boat in a resident’s backyard.
A Leftist Rag, Salon scrapes the bottom of the barrel to find “Christian terrorists”
Jihad Watch : The
mainstream media, especially organs like Salon that are even more
Leftist than the others, are always avid to exonerate Islam and
establish the claim that Christianity is just as likely to incite its
adherents to violence as Islam is.
No group has a monopoly on evil, and
certainly Christians have in history committed terrible atrocities in
the name of their religion.
The difference is that the Christian
perpetrators of these atrocities did not and could not justify them by
pointing to exhortations to such violence in Christian texts and
teachings, while Islamic jihadis can and do justify their actions and
make recruits among peaceful Muslims by pointing to Islamic texts and
teachings exhorting the believers to be violent.
Salon, nonetheless, is determined to obscure that fact and prop up
some “Christian terrorist groups” that it likens to the Islamic State
and al-Qaeda. None of these groups enjoy anything like the broad support
among Christians that the Islamic State or al-Qaeda have among Muslims —
have 25,000 Christians traveled from all over the world to join the
Army of God? Nor does any sect of Christianity teach that Christians
have a duty to wage war against and subjugate unbelievers.
almost all of the violence listed here as having been committed by these
Christian groups took place many years ago, suggesting that these
groups are more or less moribund today — which, unfortunately, cannot be
said of the Islamic State or al-Qaeda. And even if all these violent
acts had actually been committed recently by Bible-quoting Christians
with the full approval of numerous Christian clerics and churches (which
is not even close to being true), they still don’t add up to anything
remotely comparable to the 25,000+ acts of jihad violence that Muslims
have committed since 9/11.
“6 modern-day Christian terrorist groups our media conveniently ignores,” by Alex Henderson, Alternet via Salon, April 7, 2015:
The lesson here is demonstrable proof that the Dutch people – even educated elites who are first-rate musicians – don’t like what is happening to their country.
Is it me or does the Queen look a bit out of it? The lady-in-waiting (another presumption) sitting next to her (on our left) seems cognizant of the situation. The Queen, not so much. But then Queens don’t have to pass a MENSA test to sit under their crown. If they did Margrethe II, Queen of Denmark, would pass with ease. Maybe that’s because Denmark has the wisdom to allow commoners access to the royal gene pool.
At any rate it is obvious that Geert Wilders has his finger on the pulse of his country.
I am compelled to send you this letter to clear up a few questions. My hope is that you will reply with a reasonable response that puts the average black man’s mind at ease that the ANC is not willfully turning our country into a slaughterhouse, thereby turning us into murderers and facilitators of mass white genocide.
As a God fearing man I would not be able to live with myself, nor look my son in the eye, if I did not do something to speak out and prevent it.
I am sensing that you are possibly taking our country a step closer to the mindset of the Nazi’s prior to rounding up millions of Jews, and have noticed a few things that I would like you to respond to individually. They are listed below.
What is your goal with the youth force of ANCYL and SACPYL conscripts being trained military-style by the Defense Force?
You appear to be urging blacks and tribal leaders to hand in land-claims with urgency, and that the land expropriation bill will be expedited this year?
What is the reason behind the rush, understanding everyone’s concerns about careful and fair decisions made in the interests of this nation? Will decisions be well thought through with the time constraints you are pushing? The fear is this will be mismanaged like many of your past and present endeavors.
Do you support Malema’s latest threats of land invasion? If not, why are you not speaking up more vociferously?
