“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."

Florida: Islamic school teacher accused of ‘horrific’ sexual abuse against teen girls — and school’s alleged response has sparked a lawsuit
Blazing Cat Fur : Police are currently searching for a Muslim man suspected of sexually abusing teen girls while working as a teacher at Nur-Ul-Islam Academy in Cooper City, Florida.
Tariq-AhmedThe victims, now adults, have filed a civil lawsuit against the school over its alleged response to the reports of sexual abuse. Sgt. Carlos Corretjer, of the Pembroke Pines Police Department, told the Sun Sentinel that an investigation is ongoing into the disturbing allegations against Tariq Ahmad, 35.
So far, officers have been unable to locate him. Ahmad is accused of forcing two teen girls, who were aged 14 and 15 at the time, into sexual relationships.
The Daily Mail has more on the extent of the alleged sexual abuse.

How ‘bout a little less Muslim outreach, and a little more science, NASA?
The unmanned Antares rocket explodes seconds after lift off from a commercial launch pad at Wallops Island, Virginia Picture: REUTERS/Matthew Travis/Zero-G News
Blazing Cat Fur : Now we can add NASA to a long list of incompetent, failed federal government agencies.
One by one, they are falling like dominoes under the leadership of King Obama and his Rasputin. Every well respected federal agency of these United States has been ruined by an agenda of political correctness and anti-American priorities. NASA is the latest agency to show its true cards of incompetence. Never mind that the rocket was using a Russian engine.
The real issue is the sad fact that America’s greatness has been squandered in an effort to save the world from Obama’s dreamed up racial guilt. In his mind, every minority or anti-Christian group is owed a huge debt by the United States for its horrible past of atrocities and greed. Therefore, Obama’s priority has been to siphon off the awesome capabilities of this country to redistribute to the rest of the world.

Texas: Muslim plasters Houston with Islamic State stickers
Jihad Watch : The Islamic State has declared jihad against the U.S. and called for the murder of American civilians and military personnel.
If he had been plastering an American city with swastikas during World War II, would the FBI have been as sanguine as it is about this fellow? “This Man Has Been Plastering Houston With ISIS Stickers,” by M.L. Nestel, Vocativ, October 27, 2014 (From  Pamela Geller):
At a time when the FBI is on high alert for signs of ISIS allegiance in the U.S., a bearded man in Texas has been proclaiming his support for the militant Islamic group in some fairly conspicuous ways. Adam Abdulrahman has been wearing ISIS garb around town, staging pictures in public places of American flags next to ISIS flags, and posting his critiques of American culture on YouTube.

UNRWA Goes to War
UNRWA-Hamas Symbiosis Detailed in New Film
In a new documentary video entitled UNRWA Goes to War, journalist David Bedein builds a seemingly incontestable case against UNRWA, showing the close symbiotic relations between it and the terror group Hamas.

The video shows that not only did UNRWA schools serve as repositories for rockets in the last Gaza war, and not only were rockets launched from places adjacent to UNRWA institutions – the students at the schools are themselves educated to hate Israel and aspire to destroy it.
Bedein launched a scathing attack on UNRWA in a video he produced and published three years ago, earning a furious rebuttal from the UN group.
“While the UNRWA slogan is 'Peace Starts Here,' a more appropriate slogan would be 'War Starts with UNRWA,'” the film charges. It shows footage of what it says are UNRWA elementary school students participating in military-style displays in plain sight of their teachers, in afterschool activities organized by Hamas.

India: Muslim former Google employee detained for trying to join Islamic State
Islamic State of Iraq and the LevantJihad Watch : But it’s okay.
They asked him nicely to cut it out: “He has been asked to desist from such things, and if he is found indulging in such activities again, a specific case will be booked and he will be arrested.”
The lure of the caliphate continues to be strong for all too many Muslims worldwide: “Hyderabad police arrests TN man for trying to join ISIS,” PTI, October 29, 2014 :
A 30-year-old former Google employee, who was allegedly plotting to join the Islamic State (ISIS) ranks in Iraq, has been detained by Hyderabad Police. Software engineer Munawad Salman, hailing from Tamil Nadu, got attracted to jihadist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) through social media networks and had planned to join its forces, a senior police officer said on Wednesday.
Salman, who had worked at the Hyderabad office of technology giant Google before quitting his job around seven months back, was picked up on Tuesday following inputs that he was making efforts to procure a visa to Saudi Arabia from where he allegedly planned to flee to Iraq, he said.

UK: Muslim chemistry teacher pleads guilty to attempting to join the Islamic State
Jihad Watch : Jamshed Javeed was an “intelligent, well-educated family man.” UK officials are scratching their heads, trying to figure out how he was “rapidly radicalised.”
Religious fervor? Nah, that can’t be it… “Teacher Jamshed Javeed admits Syria terror offences,” BBC, October 27, 2014:
A chemistry teacher has pleaded guilty to two Syria-related terror offences. Jamshed Javeed, 30, of Levenshulme in Manchester, accepted he intended to travel to Syria to join rebels fighting against the government. Javeed, who taught at Sharples School in Bolton, admitted two counts of engaging in conduct in preparation of terror acts.
He was remanded in custody after the Woolwich Crown Court hearing and will be sentenced in December. Prosecutors say Javeed was arrested by counter-terrorism officers last December while preparing for a trip to Syria to join terror group Islamic State (IS), also known as Isis. His family had earlier tried to stop him by taking and hiding his passport but he obtained a replacement document.
The teacher is said to have become rapidly radicalised from living an ordinary Western lifestyle to becoming someone determined to fight in the Middle East, having changed his appearance and behaviour from August 2013.

Denmark: Muslims beat man with bottle for calling Islam “violent”
Jihad Watch : B (B. after his meeting with three Muslim “asylum seekers”)
Translated by Nicolai Sennels, via (click for more news and donation):

Friday night B. was sitting in his garage in the city of Randers with a friend. The garage is used as a smoking room and they were also drinking a few beers.
Three Chechen asylum seekers aged 20-30 passed by, and the Danes offered them a beer and a cigarette. Two of them disappeared for a moment, and B. talked to the third in English.
They talked about the reasons for their flight to Denmark. B. said frankly that he believed that Islam was “evil and violent.” When the other two came back, the Chechen told his two friends about this, after which one of the Chechens went crazy with a bottle while shouting: “So you hate Islam.” B. was beaten twice in the head with a full bottle, and had to have nine stitches. His friend got similar treatment.
Both were kicked while they were on the ground.

Sweden: Police point out 55 Muslim-dominated areas where “criminals” have taken control of the area
Jihad Watch : Sweden (Muslims in New Sweden surrounding and intimidating local police in Sharia-controlled zone of Husby…) 

With well over 100,000 more Muslims arriving every year, Sweden is changing rapidly. There is no chance that the country can integrate so many Islamic refugees and immigrants, and as a consequence, they create their own settlements with their own values. 

More Jihad Watch articles on Sweden here. Translated by Nicolai Sennels, via (click for more news and donations):

A new report from the Swedish National Police Board shows that the number of criminal networks are increasing. And now they are no longer only in major cities, but in 55 areas spread across 22 cities. They are especially in vulnerable areas where many immigrants live.
It is very bad in the southern suburbs of Stockholm, for example, Sodertalje (Muslim-dominated area), but also Northeast Gothenburg (Muslim-dominated area) is subject to this phenomenon. Common for such areas is that the criminals are trying to take control of or affect the citizens and the surrounding area. …
“The criminal gangs are trying to find policemen and identify them and follow them both to and from work in an attempt to scare these policemen, and that is completely unacceptable,” he told Swedish Radio. …
In addition to regular shootouts, there are also blatant drug dealing, extortion and internal gang conflicts, with serious violence incidents in public places, the report reads.
It means that people are scared and therefore do not dare contact the police or testify in court.

UK: Muslim child sex exploitation “now normal in parts of Greater Manchester”
Muslim rape gangJihad Watch : This report doesn’t mention it (which in itself is telling), but 75%, and probably more (since it is so politically unacceptable to report such things), of these rape and sexual exploitation gangs are “Asian,” which is British Newspeak for “Muslim.”
Despite the continuing horror of these revelations, the British continue to take this with equanimity, for to resist it would be “racist” and “Islamophobic.”
“Child sexual exploitation ‘now normal in parts of Greater Manchester’: report,” by Helen Pidd, the Guardian, October 29, 2014 : Sexual exploitation of vulnerable children has become the social norm in some parts of Greater Manchester, fuelled by explicit music videos and quasi-pornographic selfies, an MP has warned.

Nobel Prize winner Malala Yousafzai donates $50,000 for UN schools in Gaza
MalalaJihad Watch : How heartwarming.
Malala giving money for education. Great story, right? Well, what is she buying? NBC suggests that this money is needed to repair damage done by the wicked Zionists:
“The schools benefiting from her funds were hit by Israeli shells during seven weeks of bombing and fighting in July and August, which left more than 2,100 Palestinians and 72 Israelis dead.”
NBC doesn’t consider it fit to print that Hamas rocket arsenals were found, not once, not twice, but three times in UN schools in Gaza during the fighting last summer. Nor do they tell you that Hamas and Islamic Jihad now fully control the UNRWA in the Gaza Strip.
So what is Malala buying? More rockets fired at Israeli civilians. More genocidal jihadi bloodlust from “Palestinian” children in these schools. By this action she is proving to be as worthy a Nobel Peace Prize winner as Yasir Arafat. “Nobel Prize Winner Malala Yousafzai Donates $50,000 for Gaza Schools,” NBC News, October 29, 2014 :

Canada: Shot fired after Muslim in security investigation punches officer
LuqmanAbdunnurJihad Watch : Abdunnur punched an officer in the face after he was stopped — a detail that is for some reason left out of this Ottawa Citizen report.
In any case, all the reports on this incident are cryptic in one way or another. This one brings up the fact that authorities are monitoring Muslims who have expressed intentions to join the Islamic State, but then says that it isn’t known if Andunnur was one of them or not.
But in any case, the traffic stop was part of a national security investigation, and clearly, for whatever reason, Abdunnur didn’t want to be stopped.
“Ottawa traffic stop part of RCMP national security probe,” by Shaamini Yogaretnam, Ottawa Citizen, October 29, 2014: A chaotic Ottawa police traffic stop on Bank Street in which a plainclothes Ontario Provincial Police officer fired a single shot at a man was part of an RCMP national security investigation, the Citizen has learned. The RCMP’s Integrated National Security Enforcement Team (INSET) has been monitoring south Ottawa resident Luqman Abdunnur, 39, with the assistance of the OPP’s surveillance unit.

“Have Islamist jihadis declared world war?” By Tarek Fatah
Canadian Army Warrant Officer Patrice VincentToronto Sun : A year ago when the words ISIS and ISIL had not yet entered our vocabulary, writing in this space I asked the question:

“Have Islamist jihadis declared world war?”
Well, now it seems this war has come to the shores of Canada with an attack by a follower of Islamic State.

Canadian Army Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent
One of the soldiers died Tuesday in hospital while the second is now considered out of danger.
The jihadist who committed this act of terrorism was known on Twitter as “Abu Ibrahim AlCanadi,” where he used the ISIL flag as his picture. Among the 53 people he followed were supporters of ISIL, who propagate jihadist ideology and believe in imposing Sharia law as the supreme law on earth. If there was any doubt about Couture-Rouleau’s motives, it ended when Quebec’s TVA Nouvelles reported Couture-Rouleau called a 911 dispatcher and explained he was “acting in the name of Allah.”
Lost in the horror of these murders that some are still referring to as a “possible” terrorist attack, was the news on Saturday that three Muslim girls of Somali heritage, who wanted to travel to the Mideast and join ISIS in Syria as wives of jihadis, were back home and free. The Toronto Star reported the teenage girls’ parents had tipped off the RCMP, who arranged to apprehend the teens in Turkey and return them to Toronto.
What was particularly disturbing was that instead of arresting and charging these three ISIS recruits, the RCMP simply sent them back into the community, under the care of their parents. The Star quoted their families’ lawyer saying, “The parents felt comfortable in contacting police to prevent the young girls from ruining their lives.” He said Somali community leaders are happy the RCMP has not prosecuted them and hopes, instead, to glean intelligence from the case which will stop others. In my view, this is multiculturalism taken to its worst extreme.
Twenty years ago, would the RCMP have released teenage IRA recruits back into the care of their parents? We now have three teenage girls who apparently believe in the ISIS doctrine of armed jihad and who flew out of the country to join it, walking freely about our city, while the rest of us have no information as to who they are or what to look out for. As someone who has received death threats from Islamists as late as two weeks ago, and who in 2011 received a threat from a teenage Somali girl when I was hospitalized, perhaps I am a bit paranoid.
However, after Couture-Rouleau used a car as his weapon to kill his conception of the “infidel”, I have every reason to be. After all, I have been called an “apostate” in the past by Islamists, an offence punishable by death in Islam. What is also worrisome is that no other newspaper, TV or radio host (other than myself) has followed up on the story of the three ISIS recruits.
I asked the three major Toronto mayoral candidates if they were aware the RCMP had not charged or arrested these three young ISIS recruits living in their city. Not one has answered the question.

Why does no one remember the Assyrian victims of Turkey’s Christian holocaust?
assyrian-genocideJihad Watch : Islamic supremacist never acknowledge responsibility for any wrongdoing.
The Erdogan government is energetic in working to silence and discredit anyone and everyone who tells the truth about these mass murders. “Why Does No-one Remember the Assyrian Victims of Turkey’s Christian Holocaust?,” by Uzay Bulut, International Business Times, October 28, 2014:
You may have heard of the Armenian genocide. You’ve probably heard of Stalin’s starvation of the Ukrainians, and the atrocities committed by the European empires in Africa. You’ve definitely heard of the Holocaust. Yet chances are you’ve never heard of the Assyrian genocide, even though this was just as brutal and costly. It was perpetrated alongside the Armenian massacre, yet only one of the twin programmes has lived on in infamy.
The Assyrian genocide occurred 100 years ago, and decimated a people whose territory stretched from the areas now known as Iraq, Turkey, Syria and Egypt. Today, this very same area is the world’s fiercest conflict zone, the wounds which opened a century ago showing no sign of healing. Which makes it all the more important that we remember the horrors inflicted on the Assyrians all those years ago. Ethnic cleansing. 
Historians today describe the Assyrian Genocide as a programme of extermination carried out by the Ottoman Empire upon the Chaldean, Syriac and Assyrian populations. All three peoples were Christian, and the Ottomans attempted to wipe them out during a wider ethnic cleansing campaign, which also included the Armenian and Greek genocides. The Assyrian extermination campaign actually lasted from 1914 to 1923, Turkey’s rulers carrying on the killing long after their empire had been dismantled. The death toll varies depending which historical scholar or record you consult.

Liberal, Leftists Instincts
Why liberals downplay terrorism
After any terrorist attack, why is the first instinct of liberals to downplay it?
Their first reflex is to deny that it’s terrorism at all. Nidal Hasan, a Muslim U.S. soldier, shot 13 fellow soldiers to death at Fort Hood while shouting, “Allahu Akbar.” Yet the Pentagon declared the attack “workplace violence,” not terrorism.
The next liberal reflex is to deny that an attacker is Muslim. Last month there was a terrorist-style beheading in Oklahoma City. Media reports called the suspect “Alton Nolen.” Which was the name his mother gave him. As opposed to the name he took for himself after he converted to Islam: Jah'Keem Yisrael. Media showed old pictures of him dressed as a factory worker, rather than his own Facebook pictures showing him in flowing Muslim robes and head-coverings.
The third liberal reflex is to say a terrorist attack was just the act of a madman. That was the early spin in Canada for last week’s terrorist murders. Clearly Michael Zehaf-Bibeau was insane, they said.
The fourth liberal line of defence is to say the attacker is a lone wolf. And indeed, the terrorists listed above committed their murders by themselves.
But Nidal was in e-mail contact with al-Qaida; the Canadian terrorists communicated with other extremists, including by Twitter. This weekend the RCMP announced Zehaf-Bibeau had “numerous” other interactions that they are investigating. The attacking terrorist may have been a lone wolf. But each was part of a larger wolf pack.

What is ISIS?
Blazing Cat Fur : Barack Obama is given to making extraordinary pronouncements.
Many of the more dramatic assertions seldom are based on facts, reason, or reflection. Put aside, if you can, the hyperbole which often accompanies wishful thinking about domestic social problems; poverty, public education, and public health. The President’s public rhetoric on foreign policy, questions of national security, is unique, bordering on the delusional.
To paraphrase Jack Kennedy; getting it wrong at home might be tragic, but getting it wrong abroad could be fatal. The other day, President Obama claimed that the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) was not Islamic, a little like claiming that the Vatican has nothing to do with Catholicism. Put aside for a moment the illogic of using the phrase “Islamic State” and then denying the adjective in the next breath.
If ISIS is not Islamic then the Crusades and the Reformation were not Christian. If ISIS is not Islamic then the French had nothing to do with the Great Terror. If ISIS is not Islamic then Russians had nothing to do with totalitarian Communism. If ISIS is not Islamic then Germans had nothing to do with National Socialism or the Holocaust.
If ISIS is not Islamic then behavior has nothing to do with beliefs!…

Britain puts armed soldiers at London tourist attraction after Canada attack
(Lifeguards of the Household Cavalry parade during the Trooping the Colour ceremony at Horse Guards Parade in London June 14, 2014. Credit: Reuters/Luke MacGregor)

Blazing Cat Fur : (Reuters) – Armed soldiers have been deployed at a top tourist attraction in the heart of London’s government district as a precautionary measure after an Islamist gunman attacked the Canadian parliament last week, a military source said on Tuesday.
The source told Reuters that the decision to deploy the troops at the entrance to Horse Guards Parade in London’s Whitehall was not motivated by a specific threat but was designed to be a visible deterrent.
Large throngs of tourists gather each day at Horse Guards, a short distance from Prime Minister David Cameron’s official residence, to watch the ceremonial changing of the guard. The source said the decision had been taken by a local military commander in response to events in Canada last week, when a soldier standing guard at an Ottawa war memorial was fatally shot by a man police said was a radical recent convert to Islam who then charged into the parliament building…
But it is all worth it! For our idiotic leaders, it is “Diversity über alles”. Don’t even think of slowing down those precious diverse individuals arriving daily on our shores.

Letter to editor, Hamilton Spectator: We need to be aware of Middle East events
Blazing Cat Fur : Canada forever changed after Hamilton corporal struck down (Column, Oct. 23)
The horrific lethal terror attack by Islamist “convert” (his father is a Libyan Muslim) Michael Zehaf-Bibeau against Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and our Parliament is an attack on all Canadians and an attack against humanity.

It follows the murderous attack in Quebec against Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, carried out by a convert to Islam, Martin Couture-Rouleau . I hope the end result will be a more realistic, honest appraisal of the ideology behind terrorism, a more complete readiness to target terrorism, and a more careful screening of those who share the ideology of hate that is ingrained in a large part of the world where people are clamouring to get into Canada.
I also hope that we will become more attuned to what is going on in the Middle East where, on that same day, a Hamas terrorist drove his car into a crowd near a light rail station in Jerusalem and killed three-month old baby, Chaya Zissel Braun, and injured nine others. We are not on the front lines here as they are in Israel. Israel stands alone, often excoriated and criticized for defending itself.
That criticism is part of the terrorists’ plan to discredit and demonize those who dare challenge their ideology, authority and conquest. The war on terrorism is also a war against propaganda and lies that requires a de-legitimization of their terrorist belief system.

Islamic State recruiter: “It is every Muslim’s duty to fight those of a different belief until only Allah is worshipped around the world”
Jihad Watch : “Interview with an Islamic State Recruiter: ‘Democracy Is For Infidels,'” by Hasnain Kazim, Spiegel Online, October 28, 2014:
IslamicState7He calls himself Abu Sattar, appears to be around 30 years old and wears a thick, black beard that reaches down to his chest. His top lip is shaved as is his head and he wears a black robe that stretches all the way to the floor. He keeps a copy of the Koran, carefully wrapped in black cloth, in his black leather bag.
Abu Sattar recruits fighters for the terrorist militia Islamic State in Turkey. Radical Islamists travel to Turkey from all over the world to join the “holy war” in Iraq or Syria and Abu Sattar examines their motives and the depth of their religious beliefs. Several Islamic State members independently recommended Abu Sattar as a potential interview partner — as someone who could explain what Islamic State stands for.
Many see him as something like an ideological mentor. He only agreed to an interview following a period of hesitation. But after agreeing to a time and saying he would name a place in due time, he let the appointment fall through. The next day, though, he arranged another meeting time, to take place in a public venue. And this time, he appears: a man with brown eyes behind frameless glasses. He seems self-confident and combative. He orders a tea and, throughout the duration of our meeting, slides his wooden prayer beads through his hands.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: As-salamu alaykum.
Abu Sattar: Are you Muslim?
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Why does that matter? Religion is a private matter for me.
Abu Sattar: Then why did you say “as-salamu alaykum”?
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Because it means “peace be with you” and I see it as a friendly greeting.
Abu Sattar: So you’re not a Muslim. I knew it!
SPIEGEL ONLINE: Why is Islamic State so eager to divide the world into believers and infidels? Why does Islamic State see everything as either black or white, “us against the world”?
Abu Sattar: Who started it? Who conquered the world and sought to subordinate all foreign cultures and religions? The history of colonialism is long and bloody. And it continues today, in the shape of Western arrogance vis-à-vis everyone else. “Us against the rest of the world” is the formula that drives the West. We Muslims are now finally offering successful resistance.
SPIEGEL ONLINE: You are spreading fear and horror and are killing innocents, most of them Muslim. You call that successful resistance?

Yet in the West, Ahmadi spokesmen such as the viciously arrogant and spectacularly rude Qasim Rashid and the ostentatiously pious and unctuously reptilian Haris Zafar make a tidy living allying with their persecutors and aiding and abetting their sinister agenda by telling non-Muslim audiences what they want to hear — that Islam doesn’t actually have any of the doctrines that Sunnis invoke to persecute Ahmadis and others.
And indeed, Ahmadi Islam doesn’t — but Rashid and Zafar don’t bother to mention to their marks that they represent a form of Islam that is held by an actual tiny minority, and one that is rejected by the mainstream and persecuted by it as heretical. The only effect of their endless stream of articles and books purporting to prove that Islamic texts and teachings don’t actually contain material justifying violence and supremacism will be to render Infidels complacent and less likely to resist that violence and supremacism, or at least less likely to do so in any genuinely effective way.
Ahmadi Muslims will continue to suffer because of the laws about apostasy, heresy and blasphemy that Rashid, Zafar and other Ahmadis deny exist instead of confronting and calling for genuine reform — but that doesn’t seem to trouble them. “Blasphemy: Mob attacks Ahmadis, kills woman, 2 girls in Pak,” PTI, October 28, 2014:

Two-thirds of Muslims in Egypt, Morocco, Indonesia and Pakistan support unifying all Muslim countries in caliphate
al-Baghdadi3Jihad Watch : The Islamic State has proven to be much more appealing to young Muslims in Western countries than al-Qaeda or other jihad terror groups ever were.
As I have pointed out many times, this is because of the attraction of the idea of the caliphate, the supranational unity of the Muslims in a single state.
Now the BBC has noticed, slipping this salient detail into the fourth paragraph of a generally accurate historical overview of the caliphate and its significance.
“What’s the appeal of a caliphate?,” BBC, October 25, 2014 :
The last caliphate – that of the Ottomans – was officially abolished 90 years ago this spring.
Yet in a 2006 Gallup survey of Muslims living in Egypt, Morocco, Indonesia and Pakistan, two-thirds of respondents said they supported the goal of “unifying all Islamic countries” into a new caliphate.

Hamas-linked CAIR’s Ibrahim Hooper compares Bill Maher to Grand Dragon of the KKK
Jihad Watch : This whole Bill Maher controversy is as illuminating as it is entertaining.
The way that Leftists and Islamic supremacists operate in order to demonize and destroy anyone who dares speak the truth about Islam and jihad is on full display: first, they claim that someone who points out that Islam has doctrines encouraging violence and supremacism is “calling all Muslims terrorists” and charge him or her with racism and bigotry.
Then they proceed as if those charges are already established as true, and demand that the truth-teller be denied a platform, canceled from speaking engagements, etc., because of this racism and bigotry. The next step, if the Islamic supremacist campaign to get Maher disinvited from Berkeley succeeds, will be to use their victory as evidence of the correctness of their claims, when in fact it is only evidence that many event organizers and public officials don’t like controversy and will make whatever concessions they need to make so as to avoid it.
If the campaign succeeds, then a few months from now, when Hamas-linked CAIR is trying to get Maher canceled from some other event, “Honest Ibe” Hooper will say, “The University of California at Berkeley was so disgusted with Maher’s bigotry that they canceled his planned appearance as their fall commencement speaker…” Then a few more cancellations, and it will look as if all decent folk are shunning Maher out of disgust with his “hatred,” when all that is really going on is the victory of Hamas-linked CAIR’s intimidation and smear tactics.

Maher-ophobia at Berkeley
National Review : A few weeks ago, when actor Ben Affleck’s precious little tirade on the evils of “Islamophobia” presented Bill Maher with the rare opportunity to play the villain on his own television show, I thought perhaps Maher might learn something from the experience.
As I can attest from personal experience, it is rather lonely in the Token Conservative’s chair, the audience’s ruthless ideological conformity and the tendency of the bookers to flood the stage with disciples rather than apostates combining to engender a hostile environment for the heretics.
At one level, it is an invigorating experience: The Alamo comes to mind. At others, it is futile, attempts to puncture the bubble being met by a wall of hastily strung-together buzzwords that are intended primarily to identify the speaker as a “racist” or an “ignoramus” or as a lackey for the rich and the well-connected.
Unlettered as his contribution was, that Affleck had pushed Maher into the corner and given him a solid taste of his own shtick struck me as being an interesting development indeed. Perhaps, I mused, he might notice what shouting does to public reason?

Philadelphia: Muslim leaders demand arrest and execution of Bangladeshi politician for insulting Muhammad and Islam
1_Latif-Siddiqui Jihad Watch : It all started in late September, when Bangladesh’s Posts, Telecommunications and Information Technology Minister Abdul Latif Siddique criticized the hajj and the Islamic supremacist group Tablighi Jamaat: “Latif Siddique says he is ‘dead against’ hajj, Tabligh,” New Age, September 30, 2014 :

Posts, telecommunications and Information technology minister Abdul Latif Siddique on Sunday made derogatory remarks on hajj, a main pillar of Islam, and said he was dead against hajj and Tabligh Jamaat….
For that, Latif Siddique was fired from the Bangladeshi government. But the controversy didn’t end there. In Bangladesh, Muslims by the thousands demonstrated in the streets, demanding his death. And a group of Muslim leaders called for Latif Siddique to be hanged. They made this call in…Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
News Bangla, a Bengali daily based in Virginia, published an account of the meeting. Here is an English translation of their story (courtesy Jamal Hasan): Read it all here.......

Guardian’s Brian Whitaker: Most Arab states share Islamic State’s ideology

This is the Brian Whitaker who thinks that Gandhi “would undoubtedly have appreciated jihad”? This is the Brian Whitaker who hates Jihad Watch and thinks Prince Charles’s pandering to Islamic supremacists is a praiseworthy endeavor?”
Brian Whitaker is a notorious dhimmi columnist in a publication and a country that is thick with them, and yet even he, and the Guardian, are beginning to notice that the Islamic State is not as singular as the political and media elites insist.
Sometimes reality breaks through, despite their best efforts to keep it out. “Most Arab states share Isis’s ideology. They’re trying to have it both ways,” by Brian Whitaker, the Guardian, October 28, 2014:

The Storm of Karbala - Beware the Day of Ashura. By Tom Rogan
Tuesday, October 28, 2014
National Review : Around October 10, 680, following his defeat at the Battle of Karbala, Husayn ibn Ali was beheaded by the Umayyad caliphate, and his followers and family were killed or enslaved.
Husayn’s execution is central to Shia Islamist theology. Each year, his death is recalled in a ceremony of mourning on the Day of Ashura (the tenth day of the month of Muharram, which this year falls on November 3). While the majority of Muslims, Shia and Sunni alike, regard Husayn as a bold leader who suffered grave injustice, for adherents of the extremist veins of Salafi Islam, Husayn is a scourge against the ordained order.
Believing Shias are apostates who must be subjugated, Takfiri groups like the Islamic State and al-Qaeda regard Husayn’s death as an everlasting call to arms: a reminder that their mission to purify the earth has not yet been completed. And so, as we approach November 3, the Islamic State is looking toward Karbala. Home to one of Shia Islam’s holiest sites, the Shrine of Husayn, Karbala represents a mouthwatering target for an Islamic State that revels in its destruction of Shia holy sites.
As I noted recently, the Islamic State’s battlefield strategy is evolving. Desperate for a regional sectarian war between Sunnis and Shia, the group’s leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, a.k.a. Caliph Ibrahim, is using car-bomb terrorism against Iraq’s Shia population. Karbala is a major target of these attacks. The self-declared caliph is focusing on these attacks for two simple reasons.
First, with millions of Shia pilgrims traveling to Karbala for the run-up to Ashura and the 40 days of mourning that follow it, culminating in the Arbaeen, al-Baghdadi knows the highways leading to Karbala will be packed with potential corpses. Second, Iran is providing a complicating factor by sending troops to defend some Shia cities.
Aware that he can’t overwhelm these cities with military force, al-Baghdadi seeks to repeat in Karbala what al-Qaeda in Iraq perpetrated in 2006, when it attacked the Shia al-Askari shrine in Samarra. That incident ignited sectarian bloodletting that cost thousands of lives while forcing Iraqis into a death choice of Shia vs. Sunni identity.

IsraellyCool: Why Did This Palestinian Facebook Group Care About A Nepal Bus Crash?
This Hamas affiliated Facebook group with 1.9 Million “likes” (almost 4 times as many as the Times of Israel), shared a story about a bus crash in Nepal. At the time of writing, this post has more than 9000 likes, 850 shares, and 850 comments.
Because 2 Israelis died in the crash.
“If it bleeds it leads” is a well known aphorism about journalism. I guess if it’s Jewish and it bleeds that’s even better for Palestinians.

Canada is learning a lesson that the entire Middle East learned in the 7th century.
Ryan Bellerose: Reality Hits Canada
What we learned this week though, is something I have been saying all along – these people do not differentiate. They want to kill everyone who is not one of them: Christians, Jews, Muslims, Indians, it really does not matter to them.
Canada is learning a lesson that the entire Middle East learned in the 7th century, and that Israel has been learning since its inception: that Fundamentalist Islamic ideology is not just dangerous to its neighbors, its dangerous to everyone. The European Union is finding this out in a harsh way and now its come to our land, and if we ignore it, we will lose everything that makes our Country great.
I am President of an organisation that we started to fight back against this. One Nation Society for Democracy, ( is a group that will advocate for Canadian Rights and Values. We refuse to accept the erosion of everything that makes this country great. At our launch event in Calgary Alberta, we are bringing in 2 speakers – Melanie Philips and Father Raymond deSouza – who will speak about how Europe is currently going through some serious issues with the influx of Islamic fundamentalists and how we can work to prevent those issues in Canada.
This is truly an issue that affects all of us. Acknowledgement of the issue is the first step, education is the next, and then we must mobilize and work for change.

muslim bibeauBlazing Cat Fur : A gunman who shot and killed a soldier at Canada’s national war memorial and then stormed Parliament before he was gunned down had prepared a video recording of himself that reveals his ideological and political motives, police claim.
The footage of Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, which is yet to be released, is said to confirm investigators’ fears that this was a meticulously planned terrorist attack.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police Commissioner Bob Paulson said in a statement they have “persuasive evidence that Michael Zehaf-Bibeau’s attack was driven by ideological and political motives”.

Why our “messaging” won’t stop terror. By Ralph Peters
National Review : The educated, privileged, and protected believe, against millennia of evidence, that all human problems can be resolved through discussion.
We might as well expect Atlantis to rise from the sea at the solstice, teeming with wizards and ad-free social media. Throughout history, the only effective response to remorseless force has been resolute force. Strategy’s prime currency is blood. We’d prefer to chat. The latest vogue in Washington is a bastard, idiot child of liberal parentage, of the “non-judgmental” Left’s conviction that Iran can be talked into giving up any thought of nuclear weapons; that Vladimir Putin will succumb to our logic and vacate Ukrainian territory; and that people who hate each other (with good reason) can be cajoled to resurrect Iraq.
Our folly has grown so absurd that terrorist chieftains find it cause for merriment. When President Obama insisted in a public response to ritual beheadings that “That isn’t Islam!” the leaders of the Islamic State Caliphate (which, pace Obama, is all too real) collapsed in laughter. After wiping tears of mirth from their eyes, they mocked our chief executive exuberantly, asking when Mr. Obama became a qadi, an Islamic judge, or a Koranic scholar. Consider our president’s utter lack of perspective (to say nothing of his self-importance):
If the king of Saudi Arabia announced that Americans weren’t true Christians, how would we respond? And no, Obama’s childhood contact with syncretic Javanese Islam did not make him an expert on the stultifying bigotries and cruelty of Islam as practiced in its dreary heartlands. Like it or not, the Islam of al-Qaeda, the Islamic State, Jabhat al-Nusra, and the rest is, indeed, a branch of the faith — because Muslims believe it is.
Neo-Wahhabi fanaticism certainly is not all of Islam, but we lack the authority, credibility, or evidence to declare it un-Islamic. If Muslim fanatics justify their atrocities by citing the Koran, befuddled presidents and nervous prime ministers don’t get to contradict them.

Kerry intimated that by refusing to commit collective suicide, Israelis abet the nastiest menace to the civilized world.
Sunday, October 26, 2014
Sarah Honig: The 14th century in Washington
Kerry didn’t only fail to rebuff this dangerous allegation when it was sounded by the “regional leaders” with whom he so cozily hobnobbed. Kerry actually quoted Arab aspersions, giving them resonance and official endorsement. And he didn’t just echo Israel’s enemies but added his own editorializing commentary to reinforce their Israel-connection contentions:
“People need to understand the connection of that. And it has something to do with humiliation and denial and absence of dignity.” Here Kerry treacherously crossed a redline, in a calculated move that should send chills down the spine of every thinking person. Kerry intimated that by refusing to commit collective suicide, Israelis abet the nastiest menace to the civilized world.
The subtext ought to be clear even to this non-erudite secretary of state. In essence, blaming the blameless for what they have no involvement in is as morally reprehensible as the mid-14th century scapegoating of Europe’s Jews during the Black Death. Right across the Continent, the recommended remedy was to accuse Jews of poisoning the wells.
With adaptations, this remains the undisputed conventional wisdom. As Hamas avers and as Kerry chummily chimes in, when anything goes wrong the instant surefire remedy is to blame the Jew. The 14th century lives on in 21st century Washington. Read it all here.............

Jew-hatred and anti-Jewish terrorism is a great victory for elitist anti-Semitism
Caroline Glick: It’s time to beat the Jew-haters

The decision by the most prestigious opera house in America to produce an opera that mainstreams Jew-hatred and anti-Jewish terrorism is a great victory for elitist anti-Semitism. In the world of elite anti-Semitism, Jews are told that truth is but a narrative. Jewish history and rights have no more merit – indeed less merit – than the lies of Jew-haters.
And if Jews dare to object to the propagation of lies against them, they open themselves to the easy accusation that they seek to stifle free speech. The goal of elitist anti-Semitism is to erode the right of Jews to have and promote Jewish rights and interests. This is done by demonizing those who defend Jewish rights and advance Jewish interests, while elevating and romanticizing the lives and largely false narratives of those who seek to destroy Israel.
The Met’s singular contribution to the cause of elitist anti-Semitism is the prestige its production of The Death of Klinghoffer confers on the cause. Another dam has been breached. Another safe zone has become a no-go zone.

The Lone-Wolf Canard Move along, no terrorism to see here.
National Review : In Modern Times, his sweeping history of the 20th century, Paul Johnson recounts how Einstein’s theory of relativity, a strictly scientific principle, was contorted into relativism, a loopy social phenomenon, through a permanent campaign of serpentine rhetoric.
It is, as Roger Kimball explains in The Fortunes of Permanence, a classic example of how a sensible concept or term of art that helps us grasp some narrow aspect of reality can end up distorting reality when ripped from its moorings and broadly applied. Another good example is “lone wolf.”
Since Thursday afternoon, newscasters have incessantly told us that the late and unlamented Zale Thompson was a “lone wolf.” Thompson was the 32-year-old Muslim from Queens who attacked four New York City police officers with a hatchet on Thursday, breaking one’s arm and critically wounding another with a gash to the head.

Reading off the familiar script, NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton insisted that “nothing we know at this time would indicate” a connection to terrorism. This, despite Thompson’s Facebook page on which he portrayed himself as a mujahed warrior superimposed on Koranic verses and called for “guerilla warfare” against the United States.
Evidently, it is just one of those “violent extremism” coincidences that this “lone wolf” strike — translation: non-terrorist strike — occurred soon after the Islamic State urged Muslims in the West to “attack the soldiers of the tyrants and their police force.” In addition to Americans, Europeans, and Australians, the Islamic State lists the “infidels” of Canada among its enemy “tyrants.”
Thompson’s “lone wolf” jihad followed hard upon two separate “lone wolf” attacks in Canada this week. First, Martin Couture-Rouleau plowed a car into two soldiers, killing Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent. Then, Michael Zehaf-Bibeau shot Corporal Nathan Cirillo to death at the National War Memorial in Ottawa before spraying bullets inside Parliament (but fortunately killing no one else). Each “lone wolf” was killed in the aftermath, and each was reportedly a “recent convert to Islam.”

The Poison Tree - We must recognize jihad for what it is.
National Review : Last month, addressing the U.N. General Assembly, Benjamin Netanyahu made a connection between the Islamic State and Hamas.

These terrorist entities, Netanyahu said, have a lot in common. Separated by geography, they nonetheless share ideology and tactics and goals: Islamism, terrorism, the destruction of Israel, and the establishment of a global caliphate. And yet, Netanyahu observed, the very nations now campaigning against the Islamic State treated Hamas like a legitimate combatant during last summer’s Israel–Gaza war.
“They evidently don’t understand,” he said, “that ISIS and Hamas are branches of the same poisonous tree.”The State Department dismissed Netanyahu’s metaphor. “Obviously, we’ve designated both as terrorist organizations,” said spokesman Jen Psaki. “But ISIL poses a different threat to Western interests and to the United States.” Psaki was wrong, of course. She’s always wrong. And, after the events of the last 48 hours, there ought not to be any doubt as to just how wrong she was.
As news broke that a convert to Islam had murdered a soldier and stormed the Canadian parliament, one read of another attack in Jerusalem, where a Palestinian terrorist ran his car over passengers disembarking from light rail, injuring seven, and killing three-month-old Chaya Zissel Braun, who held a U.S. passport.

Israel and Islam. What is it that really divides the the two, keeping the children of Jacob and Ishmael in perpetual war?
PJ Lifestyle : It turns out the difference stares us in the face, at the root of the words themselves.
Clarity in understanding the wars of the Middle East comes when grasping the words in the original languages, Hebrew and Arabic, a point Dennis Prager explains in his book Still the Best Hope: Why the World Needs American Values to Triumph. In Hebrew the word “Israel” means to “wrestle with God” or “to struggle with God.”
Jacob was renamed Israel after spending a night wrestling with God’s angels. Struggling and arguing with the idea of God is what characterizes man’s relationship with Him in the Torah. Abraham talks back to God, arguing humanity’s case. This perpetual shifting and negotiating, new reaching out to the Divine is mirrored in the way the Bible is put together and how Jews and Christians learn to study it.
We wrestle with God by wrestling with the text, trying to assemble the pieces in new and better configurations, building on the sages who have come before us. In Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchk’s The Lonely Man of Faith he shows how this movement back and forth is built into man’s nature as reflected in the two creation stories that start Genesis. Both describe man’s orientation to God and it is our challenge to shift back and forth between them.

Memo from US Consulate refers to Jerusalem jihad terror attack that murdered baby girl as “traffic incident”
vehicularjihadJerusalemJihad Watch : A traffic incident in Jerusalem.
Another traffic incident in Canada just a few days ago. Odd coincidence: both drivers were devout Muslims who killed Infidels “in the name of Allah” (as the Canadian bad driver put it).
Meanwhile, also in Canada, a mentally ill man shoots up the Parliament building and murders a soldier. And in New York City, a man wielding a hatchet injures several police officers.
Another odd coincidence: both the Canadian mentally ill man and the New York hatchet-wielder were also devout Muslims. The father of the former waged jihad in Libya, and the latter called for armed revolt in the U.S. But you must put all of these odd coincidences out of your mind right now.
We know that none of this can have anything to do with Islam, and that greasy Islamophobes are the only ones who think otherwise. “Memo from US Consulate refers to Jerusalem terror attack as ‘traffic incident,'” by Itamar Eichner, Ynet News, October 24, 2014:

But as long as no “Islamophobia” is being committed, the world will little note nor long remember this. “Muslim Extremists Kill 31 Christians in Taraba State, Nigeria,” Morning Star News, October 24, 2014:
JOS, Nigeria (Morning Star News) – Armed Muslim extremists stormed two churches in Taraba state on Sunday (Oct. 19) and killed 31 people as they worshipped, a church leader said. Two pastors, one pastor’s son, and 28 other Christians were slain in the attacks in the villages of Gindin Waya and Sondi, said the Rev. Caleb Ahema, president of the Christian Reformed Church of Christ in Nigeria. Ahema said the onslaught was the seventh attack on Christian communities in Wukari Local Government Area since February.
