“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."

Protecting the Muslim Rapists and the authorities who covered it up............
Friday, August 29, 2014
National Review : We often read or hear from the media that a nation is “shocked” or “horrified” by the revelation of some crime or government scandal.
It is almost never true. At best, most people are disapproving or mildly interested in the shocking news. Since Tuesday afternoon, however, Britain has felt real shock and horror over the report that 1,400 young women in the South Yorkshire town of Rotherham had been groomed, raped, prostituted, trafficked, and brutally abused in almost every possible way by a criminal gang for the last 16 years.
In addition, the authorities — which in this case are the local government authority, the police, and the child-protection services — had been repeatedly informed of these crimes but had dismissed the reports as false or exaggerated and taken no action to investigate, halt, and punish them. Some of the examples of this depraved official indifference are barely believable. In one case, a girl was found drunk in the company of her exploiters and was arrested while the men were let free.
In another, a father found his daughter, tried to rescue her, complained to the police, and was himself arrested while the authorities took no action on his complaint.What happened is explained by two additional facts: The 1,400 girls were all white and of Christian background and English ethnicity while all but one of their exploiters were Muslims of Pakistani heritage. (The report describes the men delicately as “Asians,” but so far no Hindus, Sikhs, or Hong Kong Chinese are among their number.)
As in other recent cases, the men targeted the girls in large part because they were white Christians, culturally speaking, and thus “worthless.” They actually told the girls that this was so. Still worse, the police also treated the girls as worthless when they bravely ignored the physical threats against them (one man poured petrol over a girl and threatened to light it) and sought police help.
As a result, some of the girls came to believe they were in fact worthless, which, of course, made them more tractable to the gang. Others committed suicide. Many of the survivors will experience, perhaps for the rest of their lives, prolonged bouts of depression, self-contempt, shame, and other psychological disorders.

“Reverse jihad”: Iraqi and foreign Christians join fight against Islamic State
volunteers-in-iraqJihad Watch : “Some Christian groups in northern Iraq say they have had enough of being struck down like helpless victims and are tired of being chased from a place where they consider themselves to be the original inhabitants;  they have decided to take up arms to defend the home their people have known for over 2,000 years.”
This is completely understandable; it will, however, be the occasion of a great deal of moral equivalence from the mainstream media and government officials, as they decry “religious extremists on both sides.” But in reality, fighting for self-defense is not the same thing as fighting a war of conquest and extermination.
“Calling It a ‘Reverse Jihad,’ Iraqi and Foreign Christians Join Fight Against Islamic State,” by Don Pittman, Gospel Herald, August 28, 2014: Some Christian groups in northern Iraq say they have had enough of being struck down like helpless victims and are tired of being chased from a place where they consider themselves to be the original inhabitants;  they have decided to take up arms to defend the home their people have known for over 2,000 years.
National Geographic reports that, According to officials with the Assyrian Patriotic Party,  which is one of several Assyrian political organizations in Iraq that is made up of mostly Christians,  40 armed members have been sent to join the Kurdish Peshmerga, the official security force of the Kurdistan Regional Government, and the strongest fighting force in Northern Iraq that is taking on the Islamic State. The Christian group has shed its historically passive nature because the ruthless Islamic State has so severely brutalized all who stand in its way.

The Muslim Rape of Christian Nuns
Raymond Ibrahim : Despite how unsavory and barbaric Islamic groups and persons around the world have been behaving—whether Nigeria’s Boko Haram, Mesopotamia’s Islamic State, Somalia’s Shabaab—perhaps few things are as disgusting and cowardly as the Muslim rape of nuns: defenseless Christian women who sacrifice much of their lives to help sick and needy Muslims.

The latest such attack comes from Bangladesh, which is over 90% Muslim in population.  In early July, dozens of men armed with machetes, knives and iron rods attacked the convent of PIME (Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions nuns in Boldipuku), a village mission in north Bangladesh.
“The nuns were beaten and molested, ending when police arrived,” reported Bishop Sebastian Tudu.
Catholic Online has the complete story:
[S]ome 60 men attempted to loot the building and rape the nuns… The attackers first tied the hands and legs of the mission’s two night watchmen and gagged them in the early morning hours. They then broke down the door of the room where the assistant pastor Father Anselmo Marandy was sleeping. They then raided the convent located in the mission campus….
Three PIME nuns suffered attempted rape and were sent to their provincial house in Dhaka, the national capital where they are trying to overcome the shock and mental suffering.  “It’s very sad that the sisters cannot continue to work for the people, but our sisters are no longer safe,” Rosaline Costa, a Catholic human rights activist lamented.  Local Christians are currently living in fear since the attack. Christians form only 0.8 percent of Dinajpur district’s three million people.
Although some of those quoted in the Catholic Online report portray this attack is “unprecedented,” the fact is, nuns raped by Muslims is a phenomenon that goes back centuries.   According to Muslim historian Taqi al-Din al-Maqrizi (1364-1442), during his raids on then Christian-majority Egypt, Caliph Marwan II (r.744–50) “made captive a number of women from among the nuns of several convents. And he tried to seduce one of them.”

Ohio: School on lockdown after Muslim threatens to murder children over Israel-Hamas conflict
Thursday, August 28, 2014
PickeringtonNorthHSJihad Watch : Hamas savagery comes to the U.S.:
“He identified himself as ‘Mohammed Shehad’…My sense is that due to the way he identified himself it sounds like he was upset at Israel.” Or this could simply be an attempt to “strike terror into the hearts of the enemies of Allah” (Qur’an 8:60), or even a jihad-chic hoax.
“Man Threatens to Murder Children Due to Israel-Hamas Conflict,” by Adam Kredo, Washington Free Beacon, August 27, 2014: An Ohio school was placed on lockdown Wednesday after a man with a “heavy accent” phoned the school and threatened to murder children with an AK-47 due to the current conflict between Israel and Hamas, according to local police.
All schools in Pickerington, Ohio, were placed on lockdown after an unknown man made a threatening call to the Pickerington North High School, Fairfield County Sheriff Dave Phalen confirmed to the Washington Free Beacon.

Muslim Children Parade The Heads Of Their Victims, While A Crowd Of Muslim Adults Praise Them
Eye On The World - By Walid Shoebat:

The Islamic State social networking site has a photo showing a child holding a severed head amid a gathering of other children, which was tweeted and went viral with an attached phrase that said “This is how the cubs of the Caliphate are raised up”, boasting of this heinous act.

It should be noted that it is not the first time that such boast is made in which the heads of victims are being carried by children. An Australian Muslim child held in his hand the heads of severed Syrian troops. The head of the Shariah judge of the General brigades “Hawks of Sham,” had been carried by children after the ISIS killed him.
This image comes after the disclosure that the children are being trained to kill in the name of religion, in the framework of the preparation of the Islamic state raising a generation of fighters to rid the world of “infidels”.

Muslim Women Volunteer for Sexual Jihad with Islamic State
Eye On The World : (Breitbart) Records show that Australian, British, and Malaysian women travel to Iraq and Syria to participate in jihad al-nikah, or sexual jihad, for the Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists.
They intend to become comfort women for the jihadists as the men continue to establish a Caliphate in Iraq and Syria.

"These women are believed to have offered themselves in sexual comfort roles to ISIS fighters who are attempting to establish Islamic rule in the Middle East,” said one source in Malaysia, adding, "This concept may seem controversial but it has arisen as certain Muslim women here are showing sympathy for the ISIS struggle."

"Checks with our foreign counterparts and intelligence disseminated reveal that there may be up to 50 Malaysians in the Middle East," he said. The official shared information with Britain and Australia. Numbers from those countries show hundreds of men fight with ISIS, but also women who left because of sexual jihad.

"This figure also includes British Muslim women who are not fighting on the front line, but are still involved by performing sexual jihad,” said the source. “Australian intelligence officials have revealed that more than 100 Australian Muslims are in Syria fighting alongside ISIS.”

Prof’s Chilling Warning: Islamic State Will Carry Out ‘Mass Slaughter’ in the U.S. if Not Stopped Soon
Blazing Cat Fur : Princeton University professor Robert George warned Wednesday that the Islamic State will carry out “mass slaughter in the United States” if it is not soon “destroyed as a fighting force.”

“They have every intention of getting [to the United States], and these are people who achieve what they set out to achieve,”

George said on The Glenn Beck Program with guest host Dana Loesch. “Unless somebody stops them, they make good on their threats. They have threatened to carry out activity in the United States — killing people, mass slaughter in the United States.”

“Believe me, I plead with you, I want your listeners to believe me — these people will do it if they can,” George continued. “And they will be able to do it unless we stop them.

Australia: Muslim arrested at airport, headed for Islamic State and jihad
AirportJihad Watch : How many Muslims in Western countries support the Islamic State, agree with the Islamic State, plan to or would like to wage jihad with the Islamic State?
No one knows. Political correctness has forbidden us to ask such questions, much less to get answers. “Counter-terrorist unit stops would-be jihadist at Sydney Airport as security increased,” by Simon Benson, The Daily Telegraph, August 28, 2014 :
A WESTERN Sydney jihadist bound for the Middle East war zone has been put on a national security watch list after being detained at Sydney Airport on Sunday. The Sydney man, described only as being 25-35 years old, was picked up by a new airport counter-terrorism unit, first revealed by The Daily Telegraph three weeks ago, as he tried to board a flight to Beirut with his family.

At behest of Hamas-linked CAIR, DoJ sues Minnesota town for rejecting mosque
holder-obama630Jihad Watch : The town rejected the Islamic center on zoning grounds, but at a meeting, some opponents of the project “made disparaging remarks about the Muslim faith.”
Time to call in the Thought Police! Time for Obama’s feds to force the mosque on this city! It is impossible to have a mature discussion about mosques in the U.S.
It is impossible to point out that 80% of mosques in the U.S. are Saudi-funded, and that four separate, independent studies since 1998 have found that 80% also teach hatred of Jews and Christians and the supremacy of Sharia over Constitutional law.
Anyone who points out such things is immediately accused of “racism,” “bigotry,” “hatred” and “Islamophobia.” Yet the concerns are legitimate. Would the feds be suing the city of St. Anthony if it had rejected a church funded by a foreign government that was ostensibly an ally but that had spent billions to fund enemies of the U.S., and that taught that ultimately the Constitution would have to be replaced with a theocracy?
I expect that in such a case, the feds would be suing the church, not the city that turned it down. “Feds plan to sue city of St. Anthony over rejection of Islamic center,” by Shannon Prather, Star Tribune, August 27, 2014:

Tennessee imam who called Jews and Christians “filthy” uses ban on Foley vid to argue for blasphemy laws
Jihad Watch : Yasir Qadhi is an imam in Memphis, Tennessee.
He is also Dean of Academic Affairs at the Al-Maghrib Institute. He is a hafiz — that is, he has memorized the entire Qur’an.

He has an M.A. in the Islamic Creed and a B.A. in Islamic Sciences from Islamic University of Medina, as well as a master’s and a doctorate in Islamic Studies from Yale. In the video above, he calls Jews and Christians “filthy” (in accord with Qur’an 9:28) and says:
“The life and property of a mushrik [one who worships others besides Allah] holds no value in the state of jihad….which means if they don’t say la illaha illa Allah, their lives and property are halal” — that is, permitted to be taken by the Muslims.

Boston Marathon jihad murderer’s sister charged in NYC bomb threat

NEW YORK — Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s (joh-HAHR’ tsahr-NEYE’-ehvz) sister has been accused of threatening to bomb a New York City woman and has been arrested.

The Muslim Connection - Political correctness prevented authorities from recognizing the community’s sexual-abuse problem.
National Review : About eight miles from Sheffield in central England, the Metropolitan Borough of Rotherham is home to just over 258,000 residents — for comparison, about as many as reside in its transatlantic “twin town,” Buffalo, N.Y.
It’s also home to a local government, child-social-services agency, and police department that effectively countenanced at least 1,400 instances of “child sexual exploitation” (CSE) between 1997 and 2013 — and that is a “conservative” estimate, according to the “Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Exploitation in Rotherham,” just released by Rotherham’s Metropolitan Borough Council.
How could police and local leaders ignore the victimization of so many children? In part, thank political correctness.Authored by Professor Alexis Jay, an expert and government adviser on social work, the inquiry was based on 988 children known to have been victims of sexual exploitation, defined by the United Kingdom as involving young people under the age of 18 in “exploitative situations, contexts and relationships where young people (or a third person or persons) receive ‘something’ (e.g. food, accommodation, drugs, alcohol, cigarettes, affection, gifts, money) as a result of performing, and/or others performing on them, sexual activities.”
Jay and her fellow researchers read 66 case files, some of which remain under investigation. What they discovered were not just instances of all-too-common sexual abuse, but sex trafficking networks, gang rape, and terror:

The Profile of a Jihadist The degree of his brutality is a function of his misdirected zeal to transcend the human condition.
Wednesday, August 27, 2014
National Review : ‘I need something with a deeper meaning,” says rapper L. Jinny in his song “Overdose”: “food for thought, something that will keep me eating.”
He seems to have found what he was looking for. L. Jinny, a.k.a. Lyricist Jinn Matic, a.k.a. Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary, left the rap business in July 2013 to join ISIS in Iraq. One month later he tweeted a photo of himself holding a severed head, winsomely captioned, “Chillin’ with my homie or what’s left of him.” According to press reports, Bary may be the murderer of American journalist James Foley.
The rise of Bary, a British citizen, to global notoriety within the ranks of the caliphate has brought attention to the large numbers of foreigners expatriating to join the Islamic State. Khalid Mahmood, member of Parliament for Perry Barr in Birmingham, claims that more than twice as many British Muslims are fighting for the Islamic State as for the Queen.
In early August The Australian published a photograph of a seven-year-old boy holding a severed head at the behest of his jihadist father, Khaled Sharrouf, a Sydney resident fighting for the Islamic State in Syria. The caliphate’s conquest is regional, but its draw is global. Why?

The Evil Islamic State - If the word doesn't apply to ISIS, what does? By Jonah Goldberg
National Review : I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term “evildoers” to describe al-Qaeda and other terrorists.
A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn’t like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying “evil Dewar’s,” as in the blended Scotch. (This always made some of Bush’s statements chuckle-worthy — “We will not rest until we find the evil Dewar’s!”) I prefer single malts, but “evil” always seemed unduly harsh. The more common objection to “evildoers” was that it was, variously, simplistic, Manichean, imperialistic, cartoonish, etc.
A few years later, as the memory of 9/11 faded and the animosity toward Bush grew, the criticism became more biting. But the substance was basically the same. Sophisticated people don’t talk about “evil,” save perhaps when it comes to America’s legacy of racism, homophobia, capitalistic greed, and the other usual targets of American self-loathing. For most of the Obama years, talk of evil was largely banished from mainstream discourse.
An attitude of “goodbye to all that” prevailed, as the War on Terror was rhetorically and legally disassembled and the spare parts put toward building a law-enforcement operation. War was euphemized into “overseas contingency operations” and “kinetic military action.”
There was still bloodshed, but the language was often bloodless. Major Nidal Malik Hasan, a protégé of al-Qaeda guru Anwar al-Awlaki, shouted “Allahu Akbar!” as he killed his colleagues at Fort Hood. The military called the incident “workplace violence.”
As a matter of objective moral fact, the answer seems obvious. But also under any more subjective version of multiculturalism, pluralism, or moral relativism shy of nihilism, “evil” seems a pretty accurate description for an organization that is not only intolerant toward gays, Christians, atheists, moderate Muslims, Jews, women, et al. but also stones, beheads, and enslaves them. Who are you saving the word for if “evil” is too harsh for the Islamic State? More to the point, since when is telling the truth evidence you’ve stopped thinking?

Sweden’s collapse: Every Swede pays month’s wages to finance immigration, 48 billion kroner still needed beyond budgeted amounts
MuslimsburnSwedishflagJihad Watch : (Muslims showing their appreciation of the Swedish flag) Sweden imports at least a hundred thousand Muslims each year, and the country is already experiencing an extreme rise in crime

Every Swede pays one month’s wage per year to finance immigration, and the government has already warned that taxes will increase more than two percent the next four years. 

The entire Swedish defense apparatus, including civil emergency, coast guard, etc., costs around 42 billion kroner. The entire Swedish justice system costs 40 billion kroner. A brave Swedish Socialdemokrat asks: We were told that immigration is an economic benefit for our country. “So where is the money?
Recently a Muslim participating in an Arabic talk show put the Swedish police on alert as he exclaimed that “Until the day we die, we will engage in war against Sweden and Europe.” Asked about receiving welfare from the Swedish infidels, he answered: “No. It is not their money, the money can only come from god.” Via, translated from SVD:

 According to the Swedish Migration Board the increased funding needs for asylum and migration totals 48 billion kroner for this year and the next four years. 48 billion, in addition to already budgeted amounts, that is.

Islam ‘does not belong in German society’ – poll
GermanMuslimsJihad Watch : Germany, like all of Western Europe (and the U.S. and Canada) has been blanketed with victimhood propaganda about “Islamophobia,” but it is not enough to overwhelm what people see with their own eyes: increasing jihad violence and Islamic supremacist thuggery.
The article sees this understandable suspicion solely in terms of bigotry: “However, a second question asking how people thought Germany should deal with hostility to Muslims found that 53 percent of people believed that it should be treated as seriously as anti-Semitism….
But a majority of 57 percent of AfD supporters still thought that hostility to Muslims was as serious as hatred against Jews.” Of course. Opposing jihad terror and Islamic supremacism is not the same thing as racial or ethnic prejudice or hostility to Muslims, despite the best efforts of Leftists and Islamic supremacists to equate the two. What Germany, and all Western states, must do is not allow the growth of a parallel society with its own culture and system of laws, existing within but not paying allegiance to the state.
There should be equal justice for all, and one legal system applying to everyone, along with a call to Muslim communities to work for genuine assimilation and genuine reform of the violent and supremacist aspects of Islam. “Islam ‘does not belong in German society’ – poll,” The Local, August 7, 2014:

1,400 years of war

Blazing Cat Fur : The nation watched in horror last week as ISIS terrorists beheaded an American Christian journalist, videotaping the gruesome killing as an open threat to the world that ISIS intends to establish a Muslim caliphate that will hold absolute rule.
“Kids are taught in schools today that Islam is one of the three great Abrahamic faiths, alongside Christianity and Judaism,” McFarland said,  “In 732, Muslim forces invaded Europe, and only because the Franks stood up to them and turned them back did Islam not infiltrate Europe. In the 16th century during the Ottoman-Habsburg Wars, the Islamic Ottomans again set their sights on the West—not to bring peace but to bring absolute Islamic rule. And only because Christians stood up militarily to the Ottomans were they defeated.

Good news: American convert to Islam -- a ‘rapper’ -- killed in Syria
American-born Douglas McAuthur McCain, who became radicalized after chatting to jihadists online, was allegedly killed over the weekend fighting for ISIS in Syria

Blazing Cat Fur : An American man was reportedly killed over the weekend fighting for the Islamic State (also known as ISIS) in Syria, NBC News reports. The Free Syrian Army found the body of 33-year-old Douglas McAuthur McCain after a fight with ISIS, with $800 cash in his pocket and an American passport.
U.S. officials and family members further confirmed the basketball lover and rapper's death.The San Diego native appears to have crossed into Syria a few months ago, according to posts on his personal Twitter.Friends and family have now started posting on his Facebook, expressing condolences to his wife and daughter.
McCain was born in southern California in January 1981, but eventually moved with his family to the Twin Cities area of Minnesota where he attended Robbinsdale Cooper High School in New Hope and played on the basketball team. Old friends at the mostly-white school described McCain as a carefree teen who wasn't very religious. According to his Twitter, he converted to Islam around 2004 and his online posts become much more fervent.

UK: 1,400 non-Muslim children exploited by Muslim rape gangs, authorities did nothing “for fear of being thought as racist”
Jihad Watch : You can write that as the epitaph of Great Britain. The British government kowtowed to Islamic supremacists “for fear of being thought as racist.”
The British government hounded counter-jihadists domestically and banned ones from the U.S. from entering the country “for fear of being thought as racist.”

The British government worked with Islamic supremacists it mistook for “moderates” “for fear of being thought as racist.” The British government funded liars who exaggerated claims of Muslim victimhood “for fear of being thought as racist.” The British government for years ignored an Islamic supremacist takeover of public schools “for fear of being thought as racist.” UKMuslimrapegang
 As Britain collapses into inevitable chaos, civil war, and jihad in the streets, Blair, Cameron, May and the rest, and all the dreary Sarah Browns (one of the proprietors of the Leftist dhimmi hate site Harry’s Place) among their dreary, dreary supporters, can congratulate themselves that as they bring down a once-great civilization upon their own heads, at least no one will think that they were “racist.” “Rotherham child abuse scandal: 1,400 children exploited, report finds,” BBC, August 26, 2014: Read it all here..............

Islamic State gives Iraqi Christians one week to convert, pay jizya or die
Iraqi Christians attend a Christmas Eve mass at St. Joseph Chaldean Church in BaghdadJihad Watch : “The group also threatened to impose a ‘special tax’ on Iraqi Christians.
Thousands of Christians left Mosul in July after the group gave the ultimatum saying that if they did [not] comply there would be ‘nothing for them but the sword.” That tax is Qur’anic: “Fight those who believe not in God nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by God and His Apostle, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” (Qur’an 9:29).
“ISIS gives Iraq Christians ‘one week’ to convert or die,” by Charlene Adams, Christian Today, August 26, 2014: Islamic militant terrorists ISIS is giving non-muslims in Iraq three options: leave, convert or die. A WorldWatch Monitor report tells the personal account of Iraqi Christian Mikha Qasha.
In August, WWM reported that Qasha, an elderly paralytic, was moved from his home in Qaraqosh after ISIS members threatened him with weapons giving him one week to leave, convert to Islam or “face the sword.” Qasha eventually found his grandson and was taken to Ankawa, Iraq, the predominantly Christian suburb in the province of Erbil. ISIS has reportedly been giving the ultimatum since the group took over Mosul, the capital of the Nineveh providence in northern Iraq, in June.

Muslim groups demand mandatory retraining of all federal, state, local law enforcement officials who may have learned truth about jihad
ibrahim-hooper-mahdi-bray-nihad-awad-2009-12-10-10-10-18Jihad Watch : They got the FBI and other federal agencies in 2011 to remove all mention of Islam and jihad in connection with terrorism from counter-terror training materials, and to fire counter-terror trainers (including me) who spoke the truth about how Islamic jihadists used the texts and teachings of Islam to justify violence and make recruits.
Now, flush with that victory, they’re moving in for the kill: any law enforcement official who may have heard the truth must be reeducated.
Chairman Mao would be dead chuffed, but the fact is that even if Obama accepts and implements this demand, and he probably will, the truth will out: even Hamas-linked CAIR cannot prevent federal, state, and local law enforcement personnel from having open eyes and watching jihad activity in the U.S. and around the world, and drawing the obvious conclusions. “Muslim Activists Demand Overhaul of All U.S. Law Enforcement Training,” Judicial Watch, August 26, 2014:

Saudis must stop exporting extremism
Tuesday, August 26, 2014
ISIS atrocities started with Saudi support for salafi hate

Blazing Cat Fur : Along with a billion Muslims across the globe, I turn to Mecca in Saudi Arabia every day to say my prayers.
But when I visit the holy cities of Mecca and Medina, the resting place of the Prophet Muhammad, I am forced to leave overwhelmed with anguish at the power of extremism running amok in Islam’s birthplace.
Non-Muslims are forbidden to enter this part of the kingdom, so there is no international scrutiny of the ideas and practices that affect the 13 million Muslims who visit each year.

Last week, Saudi Arabia donated $100 million to the United Nations to fund a counterterrorism agency. This was a welcome contribution, but last year, Saudi Arabia rejected a rotating seat on the United Nations Security Council. This half-in, half-out posture of the Saudi kingdom is a reflection of its inner paralysis in dealing with Sunni Islamist radicalism: It wants to stop violence, but will not address the Salafism that helps justify it.

India: Well integrated Muslim unleashes dogs on wife who refused to convert to Islam
National shooter Tara Sahdev refuses to convert religion; husband unleashes dogs on her!

Blazing Cat Fur : The news of national shooter Tara Sachdev’s husband unleashing dogs on her has sent shock chills across the nation.
The reason behind this heinous act has been her decision of not agreeing for the religion conversion as demanded by her husband. Jharkhand born Tara Sahdev has alleged that her husband Ranjit Kumar Kohli had been pressurizing to convert her religion to Islam and when she denied doing anything of that sort, she was subjected to physical assaults on various occasions – including dogs being unleashed on her and also keeping her without food for days.

Scenes from occupied France
The magazine Valeurs Actuelles has a series of articles this week on the plight of the indigenous French people forced to live in Muslim-colonized areas.

Blazing Cat Fur : It is far from astonishing that doctors are now refusing to do home visits, that the Post Office is often refusing to deliver packages to certain Muslim areas.
Some funeral corteges, according to the criminologist Xavier Raufer, are being forced to avoid high-risk sectors, because the crosses on their hearses become targets of choice.
Even pizza delivery workers are sometimes obliged to stop servicing certain districts, Domino’s Pizzas in Poissy being one example. The owner of this franchise doesn’t want to put the lives of his employees in danger any more, after several of them were attacked on Maréchal-Lyautey Avenue.
Locals in the area confirm the danger. A woman admits to us that she no longer wears jewellery for fear of it being stolen. Another person, a resident of the Saint-Exupéry district, confesses that “she can no longer dress as she likes”, for fear of being spat on. At 58, she fears one day having to wear “their cloth prisons”.

Zuhdi Jasser: I was bullied for criticizing Hamas
Zuhdi Jasser

Blazing Cat Fur : What happens in Syria, Egypt, Iraq or Gaza has an impact every day right here in the Valley [Arizona].
Even in America, leading Muslim organizations and clerics bully with threats of ostracism those Muslims who dare to dissent. Old-guard ideologues, too, used to monopoly control, make it crystal clear to their Muslim critics: Take us on and we will make an example of you as a traitor to the Muslim community (the ummah).

On July 28, Muslims around the world celebrated Eid al-Fitr (Holiday of the Feast) marking the end of our holy month of Ramadan, a spiritual month of daily fasting from all food and drink. In Ramadan, we focus on scripture, self-reflection and atonement. My family and I attended the holiday Eid prayer service at the Islamic Center of the Northeast Valley of which we are longtime members.

Little did we know Imam Yaser Ali, a Valley attorney, would use this otherwise joyous family holiday occasion to target me in the presence of my wife and children. With more than 500 local Muslims in attendance, he riled up the crowd, demanding a community “effort” against those Muslims “who go on Fox News and speak ill against our Muslim brothers and sisters … who make the mosques look bad.” These individuals, he said, “hate Islam” and “vilify Muslims.”

Will Hamas be held accountable for war crimes? Not likely
Masked Hamas members (dressed in black) prepare to execute local Palestinians who they claim spied for Israel, Aug. 22, 2014, in Gaza. (Image source: Reuters video screenshot)

Blazing Cat Fur : What Khaled Mashaal forgot to mention was that Hamas and the Islamic State do have at least one thing in common: they both carry out extrajudicial executions as a means of terrorizing and intimidating those who stand in their way or who dare to challenge their terrorism.
According to Hamas's logic, all members of the Palestinian Authority government are "traitors" who should be dragged to public squares to be shot by firing squads. According to the same logic, Mahmoud Abbas himself should be executed for maintaining security coordination with and talking to Israelis.

As for the two executed women, the sources said that their only fault was that they had been observed asking too many questions about Palestinians who were killed in airstrikes...

How Obama Caused Gaza War And disproved the democratic-peace theory.
National Review : It was the election and brief rule of the Muslim Brotherhood (under Mohamed Morsi) in Egypt that was the proximate cause of the Gaza war.
It was the earlier election of the Muslim Brotherhood (in its Hamas incarnation) in Gaza that was the underlying cause. And it was unwise U.S. demands on Egypt and Palestine — demands that they hold elections and let Muslim religious parties run in them — that led to these twin evils. Additional tunnels between Gaza and Egypt were constructed during Morsi’s year in power (June 2012 to July 2013).
The materials for the tunnels at the other end of Gaza — the ones into Israel — were smuggled in from Egypt that same year. So were the new sophisticated weapons Hamas has been using. Now Israel is cleaning up the mess.Morsi was not just a president, he was the leader of a movement-regime.
The movement was the same Muslim Brotherhood of which Hamas is a branch and al-Qaeda is an offshoot. The Obama administration had encouraged Egyptians to vote Morsi into office; this made the difference in his thin margin of victory. The administration bears causal responsibility for the present conflict, alongside the Brotherhood itself.
The administration promoted uncritically what it called “democracy” in Egypt. At every point along the line it biased its democracy-promotion in ways that served the Brotherhood’s rise to power. This is obvious to Egyptians; they talk bitterly about how America foisted the Brotherhood on them. It is only Americans who have not heard about it.

The threat from Muslim jihadists returning from Iraq or Syria is “trumped up” and then savages the true villains — the West and the Jews.
Andrew Bolt: Muslim leaders’ radical unity - against Tony Abbott

AS news broke of the beheading of US journalist James Foley, 80 of Australia’s Muslim representatives issued a statement denouncing the extremism of ... Tony Abbott. Last week’s statement is the most frightening yet from our Muslim “leaders”. It attacks the Prime Minister for proposing anti-terrorism laws it falsely claims “specifically target Muslims”.
It ludicrously claims the threat from Muslim jihadists returning from Iraq or Syria is “trumped up” and then savages the true villains — the West and the Jews. “Racist caricatures of Muslims” are being peddled by a government which won’t crack down on “Jews travelling to train or fight with the Israeli Defence Force”. “We are not fooled by those who speak against violence and terrorism but are its proponents at an institutional level through military and foreign policies.
“We are not fooled by those who speak of peace but ... support and justify the most heinous of violence inflicted on innocent people as seen recently in Gaza.” The message is clear. There can be no co-operation on laws to save Australians from being blown up unless Australia abandons Israel and stops fighting jihadists abroad. Read it all here..........

Bacon Sign Offends Muslims
National Review : A sign advertising the bacon at a Vermont diner has been taken down after a Muslim resident complained about the sign on the Internet and sparked a massive backlash against the restaurant, Sneakers Bistro.
In June, in return for taking part in a local volunteer initiative to plant flower beds in the city’s traffic medians, the diner was awarded a sign on a lamp post that said “Yield for Sneakers Bacon.” A woman took issue with the sign, calling it insensitive to those who don’t eat pork, according to WPTZ.
The woman’s objection, which she posted online, prompted several Facebook and Yelp comments calling on Sneakers Bistro to take down the sign. The diner’s owners contacted the woman to apologize and tell her the sign has been removed. “We are here to serve people breakfast, not politics,” the owners wrote in a separate Facebook post over the weekend.
“We removed the sign that was located on public property as a gesture of respect for our diverse community.” The mayor of the town, Winooski, Vt., commended the diner for taking down the sign. “The cool part of living in a diverse community is that it’s not always comfortable,” Mayor Katherine “Deac” Decarreau told the television network. “It’s a fascinating place with lots of opportunities for conversation. The city has to pay attention to a lot of factors while acting within what we can regulate.”
Comment by Indian Soul : This is beyond belief in America! When did this PC crap start? Maybe I was too busy working to pay for those that won't for the past 20 years. Seriously, when did Americans bow down to Muslim's being offended by a word, and hindering an American business by taking away advertising?

UK and US special forces form hunter killer unit to “smash the Islamic State”
Two_19th_Group_Special_Forces_Soldiers_in_Babil_Province_IraqJihad Watch : This will be interesting. Will these forces actually do what they have to do to topple the Islamic State, or will they be hampered by impossible politically correct rules of engagement that hamstring their ability to do much of anything beyond act as a shooting gallery for local jihadis, as in Afghanistan?
And will Muslim Brotherhood groups in the U.S. such as Hamas-linked CAIR that have issued vague and pro-forma denunciations of the Islamic State applaud this attempt to “smash” it, or will they start whining about the victimization of Iraqi civilians and disproportionate force?
“SAS and US special forces forming hunter killer unit to ‘smash Islamic State,’” by Aaron Sharp, Mirror, August 23, 2014: Elite British and US special forces troops are forming a hunter killer unit called Task Force Black – its orders: “Smash the Islamic State.” The undercover warriors will aim to “cut the head off the snake” by hitting the command structure of the Islamist terror group responsible for a trail of atrocities across Iraq and Syria, reports the Sunday People.

Dumfuk, Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane: “The extremists’ barbarism seems apocalyptic. It has nothing to do with real Islam.”
MarkColeridgeJihad Watch : “The Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane, Mark Coleridge, said people should think about what social psychosis was driving some young Muslims to give their lives fighting ‘on the altar of the demonic’ for the Islamic State.
‘The situation needs prayer, action and deep reflection,’ he said. ‘The extremists’ barbarism seems apocalyptic. It has nothing to do with real Islam or God and is blasphemy of a kind.’” At least on the basis of this report, he doesn’t seem to have explained what he thinks that the Islamic State is doing that has nothing to do with real Islam, but probably he assumes that Islam teaches peace and tolerance, and that therefore their actions against Christians and Yazidis are wrong on Islamic grounds.
This is, unfortunately, not the case, as the Qur’an commands Muslims to fight even against the People of the Book (which includes Christians) until they “pay the jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued” (9:29). For Yazidis, who are not People of the Book, the only options according to Islamic law are the options the Islamic State gave them: convert or die. “The caliph makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax…
The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim” (‘Umdat al-Salik o9.8-9)  The archbishop, of course, is repeating assumptions shared by almost all of his fellow bishops, as well as by virtually all non-Muslim authorities in the West. No amount of evidence has yet shown itself capable of dislodging these assumptions. “Bishops unite against ‘demonic’ Islamists,” by Tess Livingstone, The Australian, August 22, 2014:

“I’m ready to behead next enemy”: UK jihadist says “Allah make it easy” to behead; he is working to “establish Allah’s empire”
al-BritaniJihad Watch : “‘I’m ready to behead next enemy’: Chilling message from Briton willing to kill for jihad,” by Patrick Hill, Mirror, August 23, 2014 (From  Pamela Geller): A British jihadist feared to be one of The Beatles militants behind US journalist James Foley’s killing has claimed Allah makes beheading victims “easy”.
Abu Abduallah al-Britani, who fled the UK for Syria earlier this year, made the horrific claim while ­admitting he was ready to die fighting for the Islamic State.
He told of his terror training and revealed his fitness regime to keep fit for battle. Chillingly, he even bragged that “wrist exercises” made it easier to cut off enemies’ heads. Until now his only contact with the outside world has been warped comments online, where he has posted pictures of life as an insurgent.
But now he has stepped out of the shadows to speak to one of our men acting on a tip-off that al-Britani, 23, was communicating through an obscure messaging app. Speaking a day after the sickening video emerged of American James, 40, being beheaded, al-Britani said he had no fears about carrying out similar atrocities in Syria. Repeatedly calling our man “akhi” – or brother – al-Britani started the disturbing conversation by laughing at James’ horrific death.

FBI counter-terror agents to guard UK airports against Islamic jihadis
FBI-UK-airports-502667Jihad Watch : “There is a suspicion among the US intelligence community that Britain has been and still is a soft touch for jihadists.”
No kidding, really? Things must be really bad in Britain if the politically correct and willfully ignorant FBI, which is forbidden to examine Islam and jihad in connection with terrorism, is a step up from their current efforts.
But it is: the British government has worked with Islamic supremacists it mistook for “moderates”; funded liars who exaggerated claims of Muslim victimhood; and for years ignored an Islamic supremacist takeover of public schools for fear of being called “Islamophobic.”
So anxious to appease Islamic supremacists is the British government that it banned Pamela Geller and me from entering the country for saying that Islam had a doctrine of violence against unbelievers (which it obviously does). Even today’s compromised FBI can help them improve on that sorry record. “EXCLUSIVE: FBI agents to guard UK airports against jihadi fanatics,” by Caroline Wheeler and Amardeep Bassey, Express, August 24, 2014:
Three US officers from a specialist FBI counter-terror unit are expected to land at Heathrow on Tuesday, with another 10 arriving within the week and dozens more over coming months.

New Zealand: Saudi convert from Islam to Christianity kidnapped by Saudi agents and forcibly flown back to Saudi Arabia
Jihad Watch : Two Saudi Arabian asylum seekers at opposite ends of the country have suddenly flown home, and friends are convinced they have been forcibly repatriated because they’d turned their backs on Islam.“Fears for Saudi Christian converts,” by Tony Wall and Blair Ensor,, August 24, 2014:
Tony Wall and Blair Ensor investigate. A half-eaten chop rots in a frying pan on a stove. Packaged food spills out of a pantry. Elsewhere: electrical appliances, spartan furniture, towels, clothing. Someone has left this council flat in the Christchurch suburb of Redwood in a hurry.
No-one has seen or heard from the tenant, Saudi refugee Khalid Muidh Alzahrani, known as Daniel, for three weeks, and the council has applied for an abandonment order for the property. Alzahrani, 42, suffered polio as a child, uses a walking stick and a wheelchair, and has other serious health problems.
He arrived in Christchurch about five years ago on a Saudi Government scholarship to study English, moved to Dunedin after the earthquakes and then returned to Christchurch, converting to Christianity and applying for asylum. He was granted refugee status on the grounds that he would be persecuted in Saudi Arabia, and told friends he was terrified he would be kidnapped and forced to return.

Indonesia’s President: “Indonesia is not an Islamic state. We respect all religions.”
Redefining Sustainable Development: YudhoyonoJihad Watch : What? An Islamic state wouldn’t respect all religions?
Is Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono some kind of Islamophobe, willfully misunderstanding the Religion of Tolerance? “Indonesian president says Islamic State ‘embarrassing’ Muslims,” AFP, August 21, 2014:
The president of the world’s most populous Muslim-majority country, Indonesia, on Thursday called the actions of Islamic State militants “embarrassing” to the religion and urged Islamic leaders to unite in tackling extremism.
Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono said the scale of the slaughter wrought by the extremists in overrunning large swathes of Iraq and Syria and the level of violence being used was appalling. “It is shocking. It is becoming out of control,” he said in an interview with The Australian, a day after IS released a video showing a masked militant beheading US reporter James Foley, provoking worldwide revulsion.
“We do not tolerate it, we forbid ISIS in Indonesia,” he added, referring to the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, as IS was formerly known.

British jihadists: How Britain became the Yemen of the West
British jihadists fighting for Islamic State
"Britain’s role as a chief exporter of terror was made horrifically clear this week. We examine the key failings of government and security forces that allowed home-grown jihadists to flourish"

(The Telegraph) The Japanese hostage lies pinned to the sandy ground, bleeding from two long, slashing cuts across his face – perhaps carried out with the same knife that one of his jihadist interrogators is now pointing at him. “Where are you from? Don’t lie to me!” shouts the man, in English. The alleged “regime soldier”, in civilian clothes, thrashes desperately against his captors as his throat is cut: an 18-minute snuff movie, complete with sound, of unwatchable horror, linked to a Twitter account apparently belonging to the British extremist Anjem Choudary.

Dreadful as the murder video of the journalist James Foley was, it is by no means the worst thing posted online by, or involving, British and Western jihadists this week. In the jihadists’ theatre of savagery, Britons and Westerners have for several months taken principal speaking parts.

The Foley video’s real significance, perhaps not fully understood in the general shock, is different. Until now, the Islamic State (Isil) has shown little interest in threatening the West. In that video, this started to change, with “John the Beatle” promising the “bloodshed of your people”. The ransom demand sent to Mr Foley’s family, published yesterday, is even more explicit: “Today our swords are unsheathed towards you, government and citizens alike,” it says.

The Afghan war, which has cost so many lives, was supposed to deny Islamist terrorism an operational base. Now the jihadists have a much better one – in Iraq and Syria, separated from us by a road journey and a short easyJet flight. It has been visited by up to 2,800 Westerners since February 2011 (the start of the Arab Spring) – “more than in all previous combat zones combined”, according to the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR) at King’s College London.

About 500 of these, a disproportionate number, are British (and a further 1,500 are EU citizens with travel rights to the UK). Just under 4,000 Britons – including 1,450 children – have been referred to the Government’s Channel programme, designed to divert those at risk of radicalisation, though only about 20 per cent (777) are assessed to be actually at risk of becoming involved in terrorism. The numbers have roughly doubled in the past two years.

How did Britain become such a wellspring of extremism, a Yemen of the West? And what can we do about the hundreds of radicalised, brutalised and combat-trained fellow citizens heading back to our shores?

Britain’s key failing is that it was tough where it should have been liberal, and liberal where it should have been tough. It extended detention without trial and stop-and-search: sweeping measures that affected everyone and left Muslims, most of whom are completely blameless, feeling under attack. At the same time, it was ridiculously tolerant and indulgent towards a small minority of Muslim radicals.

The vast majority of ordinary British Muslims are not extremists, as every poll shows. But extremists do control, or heavily influence, many of the most important institutions of Muslim Britain: key mosques, large Muslim charities, influential TV stations, university Islamic societies and schools. Until recently, this was done with at best the acquiescence, at worst the support, of the British state. It was acting partly in the naive (and surely now disproved) belief that it could anoint “good” radicals and use them against the “bad” ones, and partly through the loss of moral perspective that seems to overtake some liberals whenever race is involved.

In the most bizarre example, Ed Balls, when education secretary in the last government, actively defended the payment of public money – which continues to this day – to schools run by supporters of the racist, separatist group Hizb ut-Tahrir, whose key aim, the creation of an Islamic state, has now been achieved in Iraq and Syria.

Shiraz Maher, from the ICSR, believes that “in many respects preachers and mosques no longer matter”, because social media is seducing potential Isil recruits far more effectively. Of course traditional forms of influence are less dominant now – but to say they no longer matter is like saying newspapers or the BBC no longer matter.

In fact, substantial numbers of those Britons who have travelled to Syria and Iraq have been heavily involved with radical mosques – such as al-Manar in Cardiff, attended by the first British jihadists to make an Isil propaganda video – or with radical groups, such as Choudary’s al-Muhajiroun, which is closely linked to the first British suicide bomber, Abdul Waheed Majid.

The Yazidis: Finding new friends
Monday, August 25, 2014
Over three thousand Armenian refugees sought refuge with the Protestant church in Bakhche (Cilicia) Archive of the German Assistance Association, Tessa Hofmann & Gerayer Koutcharian, Armenian Review, Spring/Summer, 1992, Vol. 45, No. 1-2/177-178, p. 82, Fig. 19. See more (gruesome) photos  here.

Blazing Cat Fur : A century ago, the Yazidis of Sinjar saved hundreds of Armenians and Assyrian Christians as they were being slaughtered by the forces of the Ottoman Turks and their Kurdish proxies in what a growing body of scholars considers the 20th century’s first genocide.
“They built a colony for these people, with houses, a church and a clinic,” says David Gaunt, a British historian. In 1918 the Ottomans retaliated by sending a small army to Sinjar, destroying the buildings and capturing a revered Yazidi leader, Hamo Sharro, who was sentenced to five years of hard labour.

Now, in an ironic twist, thousands of Yazidis are seeking refuge in Turkey as they flee the savagery of the jihadists who overran Sinjar on August 3rd. Some 2,500 members of this ancient sect, whom Muslims label “devil worshippers” because of their adulation of an angel in the guise of a peacock, are said to have crossed into Turkey.
Most are in a camp erected by Turkish authorities in Silopi, a border town in the mainly Kurdish south-east. But a growing number are heading to villages dotting the barren plains around Batman, a province that hosted a vibrant mix of Christians and Yazidis before the bloodshed of 1915.

The Arab Empire - Arabs are not indigenous to most of the land they control
Sunday, August 24, 2014
National Review : A map has circulated showing the Islamic State’s five-year plan: a caliphate that stretches from the Iberian peninsula to western China, including all of India, north Africa, the Middle East, Asia Minor, and southeastern Europe. It’s an ambitious agenda.
According to an Islamic State spokesman, the map doesn’t show lands to be captured but, rather, lands to be liberated: “We will die for [the caliphate] until we open those occupied lands from Jakarta to Andalusia.” Andalusia’s a big deal to Islamists, who see it as their high-water mark. “Spain is the land of our ancestors and we will open it with the power of Allah.”This is a good time, then, to talk about a touchy subject: empires and occupation.
Nothing angers an Islamist like an infidel occupying Muslim land. The political Left has a taboo along the same lines; no memory is reviled like those of the old empires. The Arab League covers 5 million square miles, stretching from the Persian Gulf to Africa’s west coast.
When people think of indigenous peoples of the Middle East, they think of Arabs — but in the grand scheme, the Arabs are new to most of the territory they control. Striking out from the Arabian Peninsula around 600 a.d. with their new Muslim message, they conquered, converted, and murdered their way into ethnic dominance from Iraq to Morocco.
Today’s Egyptians are not descendants of the Egyptians who built the pyramids — though the bitterly oppressed Copts might be. Moab and the Moabites have disappeared, the Lebanese of antiquity were Phoenician, the Philistines were not Palestinian. In fact, only one nation west of Persia weathered the storm of Arab expansion and reestablished self-governance: the Judeans. For 3,000 years, there have always been Jews in Israel.
They were conquered by the Assyrians, and the Babylonians, and the Greeks, and the Romans, but through the massacres and mass deportations, a few Jews always remained. In 1948, the United Nations voted to acknowledge a renewed Jewish homeland in Israel, and the surrounding Arabs vowed to drive the Jews into the sea.
The Jews survived, and recovered more of their pre-Diaspora territory than the U.N. intended — but the heartland of the ancient Jewish kingdoms, the Judean hills on the River Jordan’s west bank, remained in Arab control till 1967. In ’67, an Arab coalition attacked Israel, and the Jews got some more of their homeland back. Sort of.
