He has lobbied and the minister has agreed to extend his services for another 2 years. He has served this country well but it is time for others to take over. I want to ask- is there a succession plan of the military top brass?
Why do we need to extend the services of the current PAT by another 2 years?
Does this mean that the other services chiefs are not qualified to take over? We have at least four 4-star generals who could easily take over as PAT. we have the Navy Chief, the Air Force Chief, Chief of Amy and the Chief of the National Defence University. Why don’t we appoint any of these fellows? Our military needs new commanders and new doctrines and needs to be modernized.
The Lahad Datu Incident showed many shortcomings. The latest case of the missing MH370 further exposed our inadequacies. We lacked mission capable assets. The Hercules planes participating in Australia are doing exactly what? Hercules is merely a transport plane that is hardly suitable for SAR operations, unless of course we define eye observation as SAR.
The chief of armed forces is always housed at a government quarters somewhere near the old Istana Negara. Recently, the residence of our armed forces chief was renovated at a cost of nearly RM10 million. Hundreds of low ranking soldiers were mustered to do work at the house doing cleaning up jobs I suppose. How was it decided that we needed to spend this amount on sprucing up the official residence of our army chief? Is it proper also for the PAT to call up our soldiers to do domestic work at his residence?
Like millions of Malaysians I too was big fan of the Karpal Singh.
In his younger days and near to elections he like all political leaders of that time would travel all over the country giving political speeches. I remember when he came to Raub ( my home town ) he would stand on a wooden box in the middle of the football field surrounded by a huge crowd and give fiery speeches.
Although persecuted and prosecuted for the better part of his life Karpal never wavered from his principles.
He was amongst the very few political leaders who was completely scandal free. Such was his personality and ability as a lawyer that he dwarfed his generation of lawyers and law makers.
I was one of the lucky ones who managed to get a signed copy of his book , Karpal Singh the Tiger of Jelutong.
This was not at the official launch but at his office at Jalan Pudu through the help of a good friend who knows Karpal very well. There I met this tiger in his den who obliged me without hesitation. Due to his medical condition it was quite painful to see him write as his hand was not able to get a good grip of the pen, but write he did as you can see.
The Malays Mail : KUALA LUMPUR, April 16 — The “huge” statues at a Hindu temple in Batu Caves and Buddhist temple in Penang are an affront to Islam as the religion forbids idolatry, a retired Court of Appeals judge said.Datuk Mohd Noor Abdullah stressed that such sculptures of non-Muslim deities should not be built in the open, but should be placed within an enclosed building instead.
“With such a huge statue, you’re showing that your religion is all mighty and powerful,” Mohd Noor told The Malay Mail Online and Bernama in an joint interview yesterday, referring to the 42.7-metre high statue of Lord Murugan, the Hindu warrior god, at Batu Caves in Selangor.
Pointing to the Federal Constitution which states that Islam is the religion of the federation, the former judge insisted Islam is above other faiths.
“When non-Muslims build such big idols, it hurts people’s feelings,” he said.
He added that non-Muslims had freedom of worship, but that such freedom must be exercised in a way where “Muslims don’t feel threatened”.
The retired judge also criticised the 30.2-metre high statue of Kuan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy, at a Buddhist temple at Air Itam, Penang. Read it all here.........
British Woman May Face Execution in Iran for Insulting Islam
Gatestone Institute : The notes from Dr. Azam's medical journal include a crushed toe, broken fingers, missing fingernails, broken ribs, a skull fracture, severe abdominal bruising, marks of flogging on her back and feet [and] extensive damage to her genitals.
Dutch authorities expressed shock and sadness over her execution and cut off diplomatic relations with Iran for approximately 20 days.
Roya Nobakht, 47, presently being detained as a political prisoner in Iran, may face execution for insulting Islam.
She has lived in Stockport, England with her husband for the last six years and holds dual British-Iranian citizenship.
Her husband, Daryoush Taghipoor, has stated that his wife was arrested while visiting a friend at Iran's Shiraz airport last October for comments she had made on a Facebook group calling the government of Iran "too Islamic."
British Jihadis Tweet Photos of Severed Heads, Praise Allah
Daily Mail : British jihadists in Syria are posing with guns, ammunition and severed heads before posting their
bragging photos on social media sites.
The Islamic State of Iraq and al Sharm (ISIS) has found itself alienated from the more moderate rebel
groups due to its history of attacking those groups and killing their commanders.
However, despite setbacks British fighters are posting disturbing images of themselves on social
media, according to Vice News.
This time last year photographs appeared to show British recruits having fun in swimming pools and eating Cadbury's chocolates which they had taken from home.
But the images have now taken a more sinister turn - including men posing with severed heads,
bloodied guns and ammunition.
Abu Abdurrahman al Britani and Abu Daighum al Britani are two fighters from London who are now members of Rayat al Tawheed, an ISIS faction that communicates in English.
The pair have been uploading pictures for their followers back home in Britain to see.
One image shows a bloodied hand with the caption: 'My first time.' Read and see all the images here...............
Metro Weekly : "Under international law, stoning people to death constitutes torture or other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment and is thus clearly prohibited."
Rupert Colville, spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Comissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). He continued, "Application of the death penalty for such a broad range of offenses contravenes international law."
The statement was made in response to Brunei's new penal code, which permits the punishment of death by stoning for a range of offences, including same-sex sexual relationships, adultery, rape, extramarital affairs and publicly declaring oneself to be non-Muslim. Brunei, which has a majority Muslim population and is phasing in Sharia law, previously had a 10-year prison sentence as the maximum punishment for sex between persons of the same gender.
Monday on MSNBC's "Ronan Farrow Daily," Harvard Law
Professor Alan Dershowitz discussed Sundays tragic shooting outside a
Jewish community center in Kansas City:
“When we were kids we learned sticks and stones will break your bones
but names will never harm you. That’s a lie, Names hurt. They are
horrible, and we shouldn’t be tolerating them in society. But the law
under our Constitution can’t move against people simply for expressing
"They praise Hitler and they praise Farrakhan and of corse Farrakhan was
one of this guy's heroes along with Hitler and David Duke. Here you
have a problem with the extreme left and extreme right have only one
thing in common, they hate jews. The extreme left preaches this kind of
bigotry as well, people like Farrakhan people within Hamas and Hezbollah
and the extreme right."
Imam: 'Everybody was Happy' When Planes Hit WTC on 9/11
ABC News : An Egyptian Islamic preacher's statements that "everybody was happy" when the World Trade Center was hit by airplanes can be heard by a jury sitting just blocks from the site of the Sept. 11 attacks, a judge ruled Tuesday.
U.S. District Judge Katherine B. Forrest issued a written decision narrowing the evidence that can be presented against Mustafa Kamel Mustafa two days before opening statements were scheduled to start in the cleric's trial on charges he conspired to support al-Qaida.
Forrest rejected the introduction of several statements that she found cumulative or insufficiently relevant to the charges.
But she allowed the majority of the government's proposed videos, audios and written statements.
Mustafa has pleaded not guilty. He is accused of trying to set up a terrorist training camp in 1999 in Oregon and by arranging for others to attend an al-Qaida training camp in Afghanistan.
He also is accused of ensuring there was satellite phone service for hostage-takers who abducted two American tourists and 14 others in Yemen in 1998. Four hostages died. Read it all here.......
What a suprise: Families of Islamic terrorists caught out....lying.
Eye On The World : (London)
On the 14th of May 2004 a British army patrol was ambushed by Iraqi
insurgents near Majar Al Kabir, a town in Southern Iraq , they in turn
called for reinforcements and these too were ambushed.
Ambulance chasing lawyers seeing a chance in which to make a killing
took the British ministry of defence to court and 10 years later at a
cost of over £22 million,the court case collapsed when the so called human rights lawyers threw in the towel and finally admitted they had no evidence that British troops abused any Iraqi terrorists. Today the British government issued a statement condemning the families of the terrorists killed,
stating that they lied simply for financial gain, if I had my way I
would bill the so called Human right crowd (And the bBC) for £22
million. However as this is about the Islamic terrorist fawning bBC they ended their coverage on this finding with this little snippet:
Patrick O'Connor QC described them as: "Gross violations of the
Geneva Conventions, inhuman and degrading treatment of wounded, broken
and helpless young men, who were utterly at the mercy of their military
handlers and interrogators."The MoD has admitted that one detainee was grabbed and shaken, and that another may have been slapped. It also concedes that the detainees should have been given a proper meal when they were first captured.
Facebook Exec Attends Islamist Event on 'Internet Hate'
Front Page Magazine : The Islamic supremacist group Muslim Advocates has announced that its Annual Gala 2014 on May 3 will host an “onstage conversation” about “countering hate on the internet” featuring Monika Bickert, the Head of Global Policy Management for Facebook, along with Muslim Advocates’ Executive Director Farhana Khera and Hilary Shelton of the NAACP.
Who exactly is Monika Bickert? As Head of Global Policy Management for Facebook, she is Facebook’s speech police. So is it any wonder that groups like Muslim Advocates would be feting her? Muslim Advocates is an organization of Sharia enforcers, enforcers of the blasphemy laws under Sharia…
Groups like these have millions of dollars and an obviously subversive mission, and for them someone like Bickert is a key player. How many of you who are reading this know exactly what I’m talking about? How many of you have been banned from Facebook for twenty-four hours for posting a jihad story or saying something that might offend Muslims?
I myself have been banned numerous times for merely posting a link to a jihad article.
The well-oiled machine of Islamic supremacists descends daily on Facebook and flags or reports stories that they deem unacceptable for the eyes of the Facebook user and American news consumer. Read it all here..........
Going Ottoman? Ceremonial cavalry regiment serves for first time in Turkey’s presidential mansion
Blazing Cat Fur : The
ceremonial cavalry regiment was in the spotlight in Turkey’s
presidential mansion on April 16, when President Abdullah Gül welcomed
his Latvian counterpart Andris Berzins with a ceremony never before seen
in Ankara’s Çankaya neighborhood.
Gül met Berzins at the entrance of the mansion and accompanied him to
the spot where the two watched the ceremonial cavalry’s maiden
The two heads of state then entered the mansion for official talks after listening to their respective national anthems.
While some of these crimes are clearly related to Islam—such as attacks
on Muslim apostates to Christianity—others, such as rampant theft of non-Muslims, would appear banal, until one realizes that even robbery
and plunder is justified by Islamic doctrine—as one UK Muslim cleric once clearly said.
The interesting question here is why are second generation Muslims, who are presumably more Westernized than their Muslim parents, also more “radical”? Lest one dismiss this phenomenon as a product of economics or some other “grievance” against European host nations, the fact is, even in America, where Muslims are much better assimilated than in Europe, they too are turning to “radicalism.”
Syria: inside the ancient monastery regained from Islamist rebels
Blazing Cat Fur : The Telegraph's Peter Oborne visits the town of Maaloula, 40 miles from
Damascus, where government forces have routed radical Islamist rebels
and regained control of ancient Christian places of worship.
Aramaic, the language spoken by Jesus Christ is still spoken in
Maaloula. On a hill above the village lies the ancient monastery of St
Sergius. After months of heavy fighting in the area between Syrian regime forces
and rebels, the monastery and a small chapel within it lie in ruins.
They suffered great damage from gun and shellfire, but also at the hands
of Islamist rebels who for months controlled Maaloula. Now the regime of Bashar al-Assad has regained control of the village, and allowed The Telegraph's chief political commentator Peter Oborne to visit.
The Spectator : These days, pretty much every story is really the same story:
In Galway, at the National University of Ireland, a speaker who
attempts to argue against the BDS (Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions)
programme against Israel is shouted down with cries of ‘Fucking Zionist,
fucking pricks… Get the fuck off our campus.’
In California, Mozilla’s chief executive is forced to resign because
he once made a political donation in support of the pre-revisionist
definition of marriage.
At Westminster, the House of Commons Science and Technology
Committee declares that the BBC should seek ‘special clearance’ before
it interviews climate sceptics, such as fringe wacko extremists like
former Chancellor Nigel Lawson.
Al Qaeda jihadist: “We must eliminate the cross. … The bearer of the cross is America!”
Jihad Watch : “A
new video shows what looks like the largest and most dangerous
gathering of al Qaeda in years.
And the CIA and the Pentagon either
didn’t know about it or couldn’t get a drone there in time to strike.”
Maybe they were too busy engaging in “outreach” with Muslim groups
linked to Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood, and too busy reassuring
Muslim communities in the U.S. of their benign intentions, to pay any
attention to this.
“Unsettling video shows large al Qaeda meeting in Yemen,” by Barbara Starr for CNN, April 16 : In a speech to the group, al-Wuhayshi makes it clear that he’s going after the United States, saying “We must eliminate the cross. … The bearer of the cross is America!”
Terrorist Supporting David Cameron met with Muslim Brotherhood official last year
Blazing Cat Fur : British
Prime Minister David Cameron held a two-hour meeting with Muslim
Brotherhood spokesman Gehad el-Hadad on May 17, 2013, and offered his
support for the group in Egypt.
According to the
Middle East Eye, the meeting took place during President Mohammed
Morsi’s brief reign, and was the first of a series of official visits
between Downing Street officials and Brotherhood members, some of whom —
including el-Hadad — are presently awaiting custody in Egypt. During the prime minister’s meeting with el-Hadad, the two discussed
Egypt’s free market potential, with Cameron offering Britain’s support. Downing Street confirmed the report in a statement on Wednesday, and staunchly defended the meeting.
Sexual assault in Egypt going unpunished, group says
Screen capture from video allegedly showing a woman being attacked by a mob in Tahrir Square, Cairo, November 2011
Blazing Cat Fur : CAIRO — Sexual violence against women has been rife since the 2011
uprising in Egypt, where hundreds of female protesters have been the
target of attack with apparent impunity, rights groups said Wednesday.
“Successive Egyptian governments have failed to address violence against
women, with serious implications for women’s participation in the
political transition of their country,” said a group of rights
organizations led by FIDH, the International Federation for Human
Rights. Sexual assaults on women protesters were reported during demonstrations
after the 2011 fall of Hosni Mubarak, and then under the military junta
which ruled Egypt after him and again during protests against president
Mohammed Morsi, they said in a report. “However, as of March 2014, not a single perpetrator had yet been
brought to justice,” said the report, which quoted several victims on their experiences.
NYPD Stands Down on Anniversary of Boston Marathon Bombing
Jihad Watch : At Breitbart today I discuss the latest capitulation to Leftist and Islamic supremacist enabling of jihad terror:
The New York Police Department announced Tuesday, the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon jihad attack, that it was disbanding a special unit that had been dedicated to watching for jihad terror threats in Muslim communities.
That’s good; after all, who ever heard of a Muslim staging a terror
attack? And what better day to announce such news than the first
anniversary of what New York officials evidently think is the last
Islamic jihad attack ever on American soil?
As I show in my book Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About the War We’re In,
this NYPD program had been under fire for several years for “profiling”
Muslim communities in New York and New Jersey – that is, for operating
on the assumption that communities of Muslims might be more likely to
plot a terror attack than, say, communities of Amish, or bowling
Thousands flee gun battle as Chad withdraw from Central African Republic
displaced people wait for food distribution by a foreign
non-governmental organization in the town of Boda April 15, 2014
Blazing Cat Fur : Thousands fled a gun battle between Chadian troops escorting a convoy of
Muslim civilians and local militia in Central African Republic,
Médecins Sans Frontières said on Tuesday, as Chad completed a withdrawal
of soldiers from its violence-ravaged neighbour.
Central African Republic has descended into chaos since the mainly
Muslim Séléka rebel coalition seized power a year ago. Its abuses on the
majority Christian population triggered waves of revenge attacks,
leading to thousands of deaths and displacing hundreds of thousands of
civilians, including the majority of the country's Muslims. The Chadian troops were escorting the last 540 Muslim residents of the
northwestern town of Bossangoa to Gore in Chad when militia attacked the
convoy at night on April 11 as it passed through Boguila, around 310
miles north of the capital Bangui. The Chadian soldiers fought back, and three wounded were later admitted to MSF facilities in Boguila and Paoua. "We witnessed the majority of the population fleeing in panic to the
bush," Stefano Argenziano, MSF head of mission in the country, said in a
statement on Tuesday, estimating that around 7,000 people were
displaced in the clash. "We are worried that the gun battle may have resulted in more people
being injured. For the moment we cannot access the area to verify if
this is the case and evacuate the wounded," Argenziano said. The United Nations said earlier this month it was trying to urgently
evacuate 19,000 Muslims from Bangui and other parts of Central African
Republic who are surrounded by anti-balaka Christian militia threatening their lives.
Obama Administration official Samantha Power is on the case,
denouncing religion-inspired violence in…the Central African Republic
and everywhere else that Muslims are victims.
But not in Nigeria, where
the Islamic jihadists can apparently act with complete impunity, secure
in the knowledge that the Nigerian government can’t stop them and that
no other force has the will to do so.

A MoFo tweets, Zul Noordin: Allah took Karpal for hudud's sake
An unsympathetic, intolerant, racist, MoFo tweets, click on MoFo, to know what it means !!! There are 85 descriptions for this turd.
Malaysiakini : As condolences pour in over the death of Bukit
Gelugor MP Karpal Singh, some appear to be seeing the veteran opposition
leader's sudden departure as something to celebrate. Most controversial were comments from former Kulim Bandar Baharu MP
Zulkifli Noordin, who praised God for Karpal's death, which he said
would help advance hudud in Malaysia. “At
a time when the PAS Kelantan government wants to implement hudud with
the help of Umno, Allah made Karpal die because he was its foremost
opponent! “May the struggle to implement hudud in Kelantan succeed. Thank God for
the unity between PAS and Umno, and with Karpal no longer around, I
believe the path is becoming clearer!” he tweeted. His sentiments seem to be echoed by some internet users who have been
circulating pictures alleged to be of Karpal's bleeding body from the
accident early this morning. The pictures were included in a collage including a 1990 Utusan Malaysia
clipping with the headline: 'To form an Islamic country, over my dead
body first'. Also part of the collage circulating on Whatsapp is a verse from the
Quran which reads, “And never will the Jews or the Christians approve of you until you follow their religion.”
Netizens blast Zulkifli His tweet earned him Youth and Sports Minister and Umno Youth chief
Khairy Jamaluddin's ire, who tweeted back, “Shut up. Really, shut up.” Zulkifli, a syariah lawyer, in a later tweet also lauded Karpal for his
contribution to the legal fraternity, but this did little to ebb the
onslaught by netizens and politicians alike against his earlier tweet. MIC central working committee member S Vell Paari (left) also lambasted Zulkifli likening him to the devil. “Karpal Singh is the sign of political righteousness. You are a sign of political satanism (sic),” he tweeted in reply. Meanwhile another tweet from an account with the handle @putera_umno, a
youth movement aligned to Umno once headed by now Tabung Haji
chairperson Abdul Azeez Abdul Rahim, also riled many netizens over an
apparently insensitive remark on Karpal's passing. “You are so Islamic. Did you know that even my mother asked for the phone number of Karpal's widow to express her condolences? “You have no class. If people do the same to my father, I will blame
you. I have told him about your behaviour,” Marina Mahathir, daughter of
former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad said. Marina also tweeted a hadith (actions and sayings of Prophet Muhammad)
that described the prophet once paying respects to a Jewish man. However
it is unclear what the user @putera_umno had initially tweeted to earn
Marina's wrath, as the Twitter account has been suspended. Communications and Multimedia Minister Shabery Cheek also censured those spreading pictures of Karpal from the accident. “Spreading pictures of the dead especially in a terrible state is something unethical. "I hope the maintream media does not to the same. We should all empathise with his surviving family,” he wrote on Facebook. Karpal, 74, and his aide Michael Cornelius Selvam Vellu, 39, were killed in a road accident this morning near Kampar at about 1.10am.
The former DAP chairperson's sudden departure has shocked the nation, and elicated a flood of eulogies from both sides of the political divide.
A Sad Day For Malaysia - The Tiger Of Jelutong Leaves Us, Karpal Singh 1940 - 2014
Thursday, April 17, 2014
There will not be any other postings today. This will remain on top for the rest of the day. My sincerest condolences to his family and loved ones.
Malaysian Insider : Bukit Gelugor MP Karpal Singh died in a car accident on the North-South Expressway this morning near Gua Tempurung, Kampar in Perak.
Kampar police chief Superintendent Ng Kong Soon confirmed that Karpal died in a road accident at KM306.1 of the North-South Expressway near Gua Tempurung at 12.40 am today.
Karpal, who would have turned 74 in June, was believed to be travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Penang to attend a court hearing scheduled for this morning.
Born in Penang on June 28, 1940, Karpal graduated with a law degree from the National University of Singapore.
Karpal's political career began in 1970 when he joined the DAP. He won a seat in the Kedah State Legislative Assembly in 1974.
He was first elected to Parliament in 1978 as the representative for Jelutong, Penang, and held the seat for more than 20 years until losing it in 1999. It is during this time that Karpal earned the moniker, “Tiger of Jelutong.”
He returned to parliament in the next general election, and led the DAP to its strongest ever performance in the 2008 general election.
Karpal leaves behind a wife, five children and four grandchildren.
Police said he died on the spot. There were three other occupants in Karpal's Toyota Alphard, which has the iconic number plate KS9898.
His long-time assistant Michael Cornelius Selvam Vellu also died, while Karpal's son Ramkarpal and the driver were injured.
The mood at the Kampar Hospital mortuary was highly emotional as family members of the late Bukit Gelugor MP Karpal Singh arrived.
His wife Gurmit Kaur was inconsolable as she wailed "Why why", while his son, Puchong MP Gobind Singh Deo, who was holding his mother all the way to the mortuary, also broke down.

Karpal's daughter Sangeet Kaur Deo and eldest son Jagdeep Singh Deo was also seen grieving over the loss of their father.
They arrived at the hospital at about 5.15am.
The bodies of Karpal and Michael will be sent to the Raja Permaisuri Bainun Hospital in Ipoh for post-mortem.
Police said the multi-purpose vehicle was badly-damaged after losing control following a collision with a lorry.
Karpal, who recently resigned as DAP national chairman, became paralysed and wheelchair-bound after a car accident in 2005.
Opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim wrote on his Facebook page: "We've lost a colleague. An indefatigable fighter for justice. The legendary Karpal Singh. Our sincere condolences to the family. RIP."
Also, the reaction to this tragic news has been swift with leaders from both sides of the divide taking to Twitter to express their sorrow.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak also conveyed his condolences.
"I have just landed at Ankara when I heard the news that YB Karpal Singh died in a road accident. My condolences to the family," read Najib's tweet.
"Shocked and sad news! DAP chairman Karpal Singh passed away in accident tonight.
Malaysia has lost a truly patriotic son," wrote Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming.
"Our dear Mr Karpal is no longer with us... I just can't accept it...," said Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching.
Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim tweeted: "The country has lost a noted political figure and a competent lawyer. My condolences to the family of the late Karpal Singh."
PKR's vice-president Tian Chua tweeted about the tragic news and he said that he was sad and speechless upon hearing the news.
Bayan Baru MP Sim Tze Tzin wrote on his Twitter handle that he got a “sad” wake up call from Kepala Batas MP Reezal Merican Naina.
"I immediately called @GobindSinghDeo and Jagdeep. These are truly sad calls in life. There is a void, a huge void to be filled in parliament as well as in court rooms. Farewell, Tiger of Jelutong," Sim tweeted. – April 17, 2014.
Minneapolis: Somali Muslims protest against Kenya counter-terror efforts
Wednesday, April 16, 2014
Jihad Watch : The
Kenyan police might really be cracking down too hard on Muslims after
the recent bombings, but these charges of police injustice and brutality
follow a familiar pattern: they’re remarkably similar to charges Muslim
groups have made in the U.S. — that the FBI and police target Muslims
indiscriminately, mistreat them in custody, etc.
These claims also
resemble the narrative of “Palestinian” jihadists, that virtually any
and every action of the Israeli government to defend itself against the
“Palestinian” jihad is “disproportionate,” brutal, etc. For years
Muslims have been campaigning against NYPD surveillance of Muslim
communities, claiming that it was disproportionate and unjustified, and yesterday they succeeded in getting the surveillance program ended.
So we see Muslims ostensibly opposing jihad terrorism, and yet
protesting against counter-terror efforts in the U.S., Israel, Kenya and
elsewhere. One might almost get the impression that these charges of brutality and disproportion are always leveled against any counter-jihad action, as a tactic to clear away all obstacles before the advancing jihad.
Russia attack aircraft makes flyby near US Warship for over 90 mins
From Eye On The World : (Black Sea)
Oh how the world and his dog has noticed how the Commander in Chief has
emasculated the US military. Responding to the crisis in the Ukraine,
the Oval office sent the USS Donald Cook into the Black sea in which to try and intimidate the Russians that Obama means business.
Well one Arleigh Burke-class destroyer in
the Russians front garden must have really terrified them and so today
it transpired that while sailing in International waters , the Russians
decided to send up a couple of Su 24 attack aircraft of which one spent 90 minutes buzzing the USS Donald Cook, while the other kept its distance.
I can only presume that the Russians wanted to tweak the tail of the
paper tiger that the US has become and if by chance a jet just happened
to have been shot out of the sky, the USS Donald Cook would now be at
the bottom of the sea and Obama would be apologising to the Russians for
Funny enough the Russians test fired an ICBM today, sending the message that they can issue much more salient threats than the West.
The Australian : TWO Australian citizens have been killed in a US airstrike in Yemen in what is the first known example of Australian extremists dying as a result of Washington’s highly controversial use of predator drones.

Muslim Official Says Killed Hindu Foes 'Punished by Allah'
Zee News : Bijnor (Uttar Pradesh): Uttar Pradesh's Minority Affairs Minister Mohd Azam Khan seems uncontrollable.
He told a stunned gathering at Bijnor town that the untimely deaths of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi and his brother Sanjay Gandhi were "acts of Allah".
The Election Commission banned all public meetings, speeches and campaigning for the Lok Sabha polls hours after the comment.
The senior minister in the Samajwadi Party government of Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav said both Rajiv Gandhi and Sanjay Gandhi had committed "serious crimes" and were "punished by Allah" and which is why they met brutal deaths.
Addressing an election rally in Bijnor Friday evening, Khan said while Sanjay Gandhi was responsible for mass and forcible sterlization during the emergency rule of his mother, former prime minister Indira Gandhi, he accused former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi of incurring the "wrath of gods" as he had presided over the opening of the Babri mosque to Hindus for prayers.

Three universities recently had to change decisions due to pressure from Muslim organizations.
The U.S. university Brandeis in Massachusetts has had to pull back
plans to give an honorary doctorate to the Islam-critical woman Ayaan
And it’s not the first time that an American university is
forced on the defensive and has to withdraw a decision because strong
and powerful Islamist groups have gone on the offensive. A few weeks
ago, the University of Michigan and University of Illinois changed their
decision to screen an Islam-critical film because Muslim interest
groups in the United States threatened the universities with lawsuits if
they showed the film.
It is certainly not in accord with the universities’ best interests
that they need to retreat. Commentators in the United States says that
political correctness is influencing academia. The Muslim organizations
are too strong and have success lobbying to prevent Islam critics to
Muslim Issue : Relations between Muslims and Germans are “not so good” says one Muslim in the videoclip.
Huh? Really?? How can that be! Muslims get along with eeeeveryone. Surely the whole fault must be with the Germans, bloody kuffars!

Premium Times : “The accused called the girl to a corner inside the mosque, removed her pants, used his hand to cover her mouth and raped her.”
An Abule Egba Magistrates’ Court in Lagos on Monday remanded a 35-year-old Islamic scholar, also called alfa, Muideen Bilau, at Kirikiri Minimum Prisons for allegedly defiling a minor inside a mosque.
The Magistrate, Tajudeen Elias, who gave the order, adjourned the case to April 22 for the bail application of the accused.
The accused, who lives at 10, Folarinwa St., Egan, Lagos, pleaded not guilty to the twin- charge of sexual assault by penetration and engaging in sexual activity without consent.
The prosecutor, Racheal Williams had told the court that the accused committed the offence on April 7 at a mosque at 59, Obajimi St., Egan, Lagos.
According to her, the accused went to the mosque to pray where he saw a three-year-old girl, who came in company of her mother for prayers. Read it all here............
Remember: Government is not our master By Kevin D. Williamson
National Review : A great deal of the discussion about the Cliven Bundy standoff in Nevada has focused on the legal questions — the litigation between Mr. Bundy and the BLM, his eccentric (i.e., batzoid) legal rationales, etc.
But as Rich Lowry and others have argued, this is best understood not as a legal proceeding but as an act of civil disobedience. John Hinderaker and Rich both are correct that as a legal question Mr. Bundy is legless. But that is largely beside the point.
Of course the law is against Cliven Bundy.
How could it be otherwise? The law was against Mohandas Gandhi, too, when he was tried for sedition; Mr. Gandhi himself habitually was among the first to acknowledge that fact, refusing to offer a defense in his sedition case and arguing that the judge had no choice but to resign, in protest of the perfectly legal injustice unfolding in his courtroom, or to sentence him to the harshest sentence possible, there being no extenuating circumstances for Mr. Gandhi’s intentional violation of the law.
Henry David Thoreau was happy to spend his time in jail, knowing that the law was against him, whatever side justice was on.
Daily News : JERUSALEM — The prime minister of the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip on Tuesday praised a shooting that killed an Israeli and wounded his wife and son as they drove through the West Bank the previous evening en route to a Passover Seder.
Speaking in Gaza, Ismail Haniyeh said the attack outside the city of Hebron “brought back life to the path of resistance” against Israel and warned of more attacks in the Palestinian territory.
Monday’s shooting came just before the start of the weeklong Jewish holiday of Passover as families gather after sundown for the Seder meal. No one claimed responsibility for the attack. Read it all here........
Syrian army seizes ancient Christian town near Lebanon border
Pre-war photo of Maaloula Blazing Cat Fur : (Reuters) - Syrian soldiers backed by Hezbollah fighters recaptured the
town of Maaloula, north of Damascus, on Monday, military sources and
state television said, further squeezing rebels' supply routes through
the Qalamoun mountains into Lebanon.
Islamist fighters, some from the al Qaeda-linked Nusra Front, had taken
over part of the ancient Christian town in December and held several
nuns captive until releasing them in March in a prisoner-exchange deal.
Government forces have recaptured several rebel-held areas and border
towns in recent months, closing off supply routes from Lebanon and
securing the main highway leading north from Damascus toward central
Syria, Homs and the Mediterranean. Maaloula, 5 km (3 miles) from the main road linking Damascus to Homs,
has changed hands at least four times in attacks and counter-assaults by
rebels and government forces.
Library of Staffanstorp, after being visited by “youths.” Books are impure…
Jihad Watch : Swedish media never give any description of criminals, to avoid
people forming a negative view of Muslims and the government’s
There has even been examples of newspapers
pixelating the photos of immigrant criminals with pink pixels to further distort reality.
Staffanstorp is a small town just outside Muslim-dominated Malmö, and ungdomsgäng (youth gang) is synonymous with Muslim gang in the Swedish media. Via 10news.dk, translated from Avpixlat. Boko Haram in Sweden?:
UK: Anti-terror chief chosen to investigate Muslim school takeover plot, sparking concern he’ll “undermine confidence” of Muslims
Jihad Watch : Birmingham
City Council leader Sir Albert Bore said: “Peter Clarke will need to
give careful consideration to building a strong relationship with us
and, given his recent counter-terrorism responsibilities in London,
ensure that his investigation does not undermine the confidence of our
Now wait just a minute, Bore. This is a plot by Islamic
supremacists to take over schools, and it is up to the investigator to
win the confidence of Muslim communities?
Why isn’t it up to the Muslim
communities to win the confidence of the investigator? And Peter Clarke
was a counter-terrorism investigator, so his appointment is
“unfortunate”? But Britain bans people from entering the country if they
dare suggest that the dogma that all Muslims in the country are
moderate Western-oriented pluralists, right?
So if all the Muslims in
the UK are moderate, Western-oriented pluralists, why would they be
offended by a counter-terror investigator? Aren’t they against
terrorism? Just another day in Stupid Britannia.
“Anti-Terror Chief To Probe ‘Muslim School Plot,’” from Sky News, April 15 :
Sweden: Muslims set up homemade traffic control: “People are terrified…It is a way to intimidate the population.”
Jihad Watch : I recently wrote about how 50 gang members, probably Black Cobra (a Muslim gang), attacked the police in Skäggetorp. Now, Muslims have created their own traffic control in and out of the city. Via 10news.dk, translated from Corren:
Police have received calls that criminals have set up their own roadblocks in connection with the riots in Skäggetorp.
According to Thomas Agnevik, police spokesman, there is evidence that
criminals should have stopped cars in Skäggetorp both Sunday night and
This was reportedly on Nygårdsvägen, at the entrance to
the center of Skäggetorp city.
“It’s very serious, of course, people are terrified. It is a way to
elevate themselves, to gain respect and intimidate the population. It is
part of their strategy,” says Thomas Agnevik.
Several people called Corren newspaper and told of masked Black Cobra
members completely unperturbed created their own traffic controls and
scared people who were on their way into Skäggetorps center.
Nigeria: Islamic jihadists abduct 100 schoolgirls as sex slaves
Jihad Watch : This verse,Qur’an 4:3 is the basis for Islamic polygamy, allowing a man to take
as many as four wives, as long as he believes he is able to “deal
justly” with all of them.
But justice in these circumstances is in the
eye of the beholder. Ibn Kathir says this the requirement to deal justly
with one”s wives is no big deal, since treating them justly isn’t the
same as treating them equally: “it is not obligatory to treat them
equally, rather it is recommended. So if one does so, that is good, and
if not, there is no harm on him.”
Jihad Watch : In “The Boston bombing and the ‘Islamophobia’ scam” at the Daily Caller
today, I show how the Boston Marathon jihad bombing was the bitter
fruit of the ongoing anti-”Islamophobia” witch hunt conducted by the
Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations and its allied
I discuss this at greater length in my book Arab Winter Comes to America: The Truth About We’re In.
When Islamic jihadists set off two bombs last year at the
Boston Marathon, murdering three people and wounded 260, maiming some
for life, they brought to fruition not only their own plot, but the
whole enterprise of making Americans think that there is a big problem
of “Islamophobia” in this country.
As this grim anniversary of the April
15, 2013 bombings approaches, it is useful to recall what the ongoing
drumbeat over “Islamophobia” is really all about: enabling Islamic jihad
With the first anniversary of the Boston Marathon jihad bombings now here (April 15), the New York Times made
yet another attempt to exonerate the Obama Administration of
responsibility for one of its manifest failures, claiming that an
inspector general’s report on the bombings was an “exoneration of the
F.B.I.,” as it showed that “the Russian government declined to provide
the F.B.I. with information about one of the Boston Marathon bombing
suspects that would most likely have led to more extensive scrutiny of
him at least two years before the attack.”
See? The bombing was all the fault of that scoundrel Putin. It had
nothing to do with the FBI, because of fecklessness and political
correctness, failing to act properly on information the Russians gave
Boston Globe : Dutch Jesuit priest Frans van der Lugt, killed in Syria last week just shy of his 76th birthday, personified the best of the missionary spirit in Catholicism.
He spent 50 years in his adopted country, humbly serving poor and disabled persons regardless of their race or religion.Whenever a Syrian came to his door seeking help, van der Lugt told a friend, “I don’t see Muslims or Christians, only human beings.”
At the time of his death, van der Lugt was the last Westerner in the bitterly contested city of Homs. On Monday morning, a still-unidentified assailant dragged him into the street outside his Jesuit residence, beat him, and then shot him twice in the head. Most observers believe the killer was an Islamic radical, though a few suspect the Assad regime may have orchestrated the murder in order to blame the rebels.
For the last several years, van der Lugt served at a small center for mentally and physically disabled people. A Muslim charity would give him around nine pounds of flour every week, which he turned into bread, giving half a loaf to the 30 neediest people he knew. Read it all here........
Malaysian Insider : There was a time when Malaysia was known for its institutions – a civil service that facilitated rapid development from an agrarian economy to an industrialised one, a judiciary that was held in high esteem of the Commonwealth, and a military that defeated a communist insurgency.
Today, more than 50 years as a nation spanning from Perlis to Sabah, we see ineptitude and incompetency, a complete meltdown of Malaysian institutions.
The Attorney-General now farms out cases to an Umno lawyer; the Inspector-General of Police (IGP) leads an organisation which does not act when a High Court rules; the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) suffers a credibility deficit; and the air force has not covered itself with any glory.
So who do Malaysians turn to in time of need?
Not any of the above, it appears. Sad but true.
The saga of Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, which disappeared with 239 people on board on March 8, has confirmed what Malaysians have suspected for a long time. That there is not much meritocracy and thinking going on in the civil service.
