Catholics broadly share the identitarian tensions of the
French people concerning the presence of immigrants and the fear of
Islam. But, on this ground, they have become more nervous than before
and are adopting positions that are more and more severe.
Thus, 41% of
Catholics think Islam is "truly" a threat to the West, a figure that is
up 11 points in one year. 37% are in "complete agreement" with the idea
that there are too many immigrants in France, against 25% in 2012.
OIC blames free speech for "Islamophobia" in the West by Soeren Kern
Gatestone Institute : The OIC continues to war against the freedom of speech, so as to silence any resistance to jihad terror and Islamic supremacism.
Their Leftist allies cheerfully aid and abet them in this.
The common thread that binds the
entire document together is the OIC's repeated insistence that the main
culprit responsible for "the institutionalization of Islamophobia" in
Western countries is freedom of speech.
"The Istanbul Process started with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
and the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy
Catherine Ashton.... We need to build on it." — OIC Secretary General
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation, an influential bloc of 57
Muslim countries, has released the latest edition of its annual
The "Sixth OIC Observatory Report on Islamophobia: October 2012-September 2013"
is a 94-page document purporting to "offer a comprehensive picture of
Islamophobia, as it exists mainly in contemporary Western societies." But the primary objective of the OIC—headquartered in Saudi Arabia
and funded by dozens of Muslim countries that systematically persecute
Christians and Jews—has long been to pressure Western countries into
passing laws that would ban "negative stereotyping of Islam."
In this context, the OIC's annual Islamophobia report—an integral
part of a sustained effort to prove the existence of a "culture of
intolerance of Islam and Muslims" in the West—is in essence a lobbying
tool to pressure Western governments to outlaw all forms of
"Islamophobia," a nebulous concept invented by the Muslim Brotherhood in the 1990s.
"The indigenous people cannot adapt themselves to the
multicultural reality. That's what is going on and they should have to
emigrate. Whoever doesn't like this, should go away”. The words come
from the Antwerp AEL (Arabic European League) leader Dyab Abou Jahjah in
the latest edition of the Dutch magazine ‘Society Quarterly’.
Those who fail to defend the freedom of speech do not deserve the right to protest
is refreshing to see students standing up for their rights.
something about modern students' demand for the right to protest, for
the right to express their political views and grievances as they see
fit, rings hollow.
For over the past decade and more, students – or at

UK: Muslim group "Sharia Project" to target London revellers with anti-alcohol protest
Jihad Watch : A sign of things to come in cowed, clueless, compromised Britain,
unable or unwilling to stand up for its own societal principles.
Islamic supremacists are not content to obey Islamic law themselves;
they have to bring everyone else under its sway as well. And with Sharia
institutionalizing discrimination against women and non-Muslims, that
is hardly a benign imperative. "Muslim Anti-Alcohol Protest in Brick Lane: Hundreds to Target London Revellers," by Dominic Gover for International Business Times, December 10 :
A planned march by Muslims against the sale and consumption
of alcohol in the hip heart of east London has drawn "overwhelming
support" from around the country, organisers have claimed.
Protesters intend to protest on Friday in Brick Lane, Tower Hamlets,
by targeting shops selling alcohol in a street famous for its trendy
bars and curry restaurants.
The demonstrators said that selling booze was un-Islamic and caused social problems. But critics fear that the event by the Shariah Project will be yet another source of division in the borough. In September, Tower Hamlets witnessed the anti-Muslim English Defence League trying to march against Islam.
For the mainstream media, you're "anti-Muslim" if you're against
jihad terror and Sharia, which is like saying that foes of the Nazis
were "anti-German." Last week, three men who were part of a bogus "Muslim
patrol" were jailed for threatening and beating up people they claimed
had breached strict Islamic rules on alcohol and dress.
Abu Rumaysah, spokesman for the Waltham Forest-based Shariah Project,
claimed that groups of Muslims would come from as far away as the
Midlands to take part in the demonstration.
Investigation officers of the Inca Guardia Civil arrested a
38-year-old Moroccan accused of raping a 19-year old girl in a pub in
Inca. Recently, a young girl who lives in the neighbourhood was in the Bar
Studi having a few beers. Then she started to feel unwell. The girl then lapsed into unconsciousness and remembers nothing of what
happened, according to the Guardia Civil. At a certain moment, the owner
of the bar noticed that there were six men in the bar, all of them of
Moroccan nationality, and that around 3 in the morning, one of them had
disappeared. Quickly he went to the adjacent room and saw that the Moroccan, whom he
did not know but had seen a few times in his bar, was on his knees with
his trousers down, penetrating the girl, who was lying unconscious on
the couch. Hours later, the girl came to hospital and filed the appropriate complaint in the headquarters of the Guardia Civil. From then the investigation section got involved and was able to find
the possible perpetrator, who was a 38-year-old Moroccan with multiple
previous offences. At the moment of his arrest, the criminal tried to flee and it was
necessary to use the force strictly required to subdue him and cut off
his possible escape routes. The investigation was very complicated because in Inca the secretiveness
of the Moroccan population based in the city is very high. They do not
want to cooperate with state security agencies and hide possible
Jobs & Hire : The International Humanist and Ethical
Union (IHEU), a global organization that unites atheists, agnostics, and
other religious skeptics, released a study that shows 13 Muslim
countries around the world mete out execution of non-believers of Islam,
according to a Reuters report.
The Freethought Report 2013 covered all
193 U.N. member states and asked the expertise of lawyers and human
rights experts to look into statutes, court records and media accounts
to verify the situation of atheists and non-believers.
The study found that atheists and free
thinkers are always subjected to discrimination and the worst that could
happen to them is execution.
"This report shows that the overwhelming
majority of countries fail to respect the rights of atheists and
freethinkers although they have signed U.N agreements to treat all
citizens equally," Sonja Eggerickx, IHEU President, told Reuters.
IHEU's study this year is more
It brought to the fore a full list of countries where
execution, usually public beheading, takes place. The study includes
Afghanistan, Iran, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritania, Nigeria, Pakistan,
Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, United Arab Emirates and Yemen. The
list of countries in the study is higher compared to seven out of 60
countries surveyed last year. The study showed that the offenses that
warranted public execution are blasphemy and apostasy, or when a
believer renounces the faith or switches to another religion.
The Israel Defense Forces, more than any other organization,
represents Israeli society. It is a melting pot that includes soldiers
from all ethnic, religious and racial backgrounds, men and women, but
even this human collage always has something new.
For example, Israel's
first female Nigerian officer, Lieutenant Toby Cohen, 21, who was born
in Nigeria to a Nigerian mother and Israeli father. Her parents and
8-year-old sister live in the town of Kanu in northern Nigeria, while
she immigrated to Israel on her own at the age of 17. Cohen serves in
the Homefront Command.
"Even when I was 3 years old I knew I wanted to come to Israel. My father was born here and served in the Armor Corps, and our home in Nigeria was full of stories about Israel and the army,"
she said. "On Rosh Hashana and Passover we would always travel to
celebrate with Dad's family in Israel, and as I was getting older I
wanted more and more to get to know Israeli culture and strengthen my
connection to Israel."

'Gender apartheid' is real in UK universities. So why aren't more people fighting it?
degrees were first offered to women in the UK in 1878, but last night,
stood in front of the London headquarters of Universities UK, which
claims to be ‘the voice for UK universities’, it appeared that the fight
for equality is far from over.
Standing in Tavistock Square on a freezing December night, over 100
campaigners and students gathered to protest against the "shame of
gender apartheid" at universities. The rally last night was purposefully held on International Human Rights
Day and on the day of Nelson Mandela's memorial, to expose the fact
that gender segregation is widespread. Maryam Namazie, a researcher at the University of London and one of the
organisers of the event, said that she has noticed a rise of Islamism
across UK Universities that is not truly representing the views of most
Muslims. She said: “In the UUK’s efforts to be inclusive they are
encouraging sexism and endorsing discrimination. “It's about free speech and its about Islamists imposing their rules and
projecting women as symbols of chaos in society.............."
Bangladesh: Criminals smash tombs, plough land to occupy Hindu cemetery
Influential land grabbers smashed three memorial tombs to illegally
occupy land of the only cemetery of Hindu community in Saidpur
municipality (in northern Bangladesh) in the district.
The 1.29-acre land comprising plot No 21 at Kundol in Saidpur municipality is a khas land, which is classified as cemetery of the Hindu community, according to official document of district land office. Visiting the sight on Tuesday morning, it was found that some people
were ploughing the occupied land of the cemetery in its east to
cultivate potato there. “Since my childhood, I saw Hindus bringing their dead to the cemetery
for funerals. But local influential people engaged day labourers on
December 4 to smash and remove old memorial tombs and occupy cemetery
land,” said octogenarian Mohamed Amin, a resident of the area. At the north side of the cemetery, Hindus built a spacious room for
keeping bodies safely in case of natural calamity. Priests recite holy
verses there during the funeral. During Tuesday’s visit, it was found
that iron grills of windows and
the door made of heavy iron bars of the room were stolen............

"He fled as a result of the Islamic Front taking over his headquarters," a senior US official said. The US is urging Gen.

Officials said the takeover of the facilities by the Islamic Front was the latest sign that the Western-backed opposition was weakening

A century ago the murder of a British soldier in broad daylight in
London would have been an act of war.
In this post-imperial and
post-everything age, an atrocity leads to a task force which produces a
report which is then filed in a desk drawer by the undersecretary for
something or other. Like clockwork, the murder of Lee Rigby led to a task force and to a
report. The report is 7 pages long. It’s possible to read it in much
less than the twenty minutes that it took London police to respond to
the murder in progress. You could even get through it a few times in
real time while a Muslim convert who describes himself as a soldier of

A Jordanian-based Islamist cleric urged jihadi terrorists
last week not to emulate the late South African leader Nelson Mandela
because he is an “infidel” and was given awards by major world powers.
The cleric, Eyad Qunaibi, is western-educated and regarded by U.S.
officials as a prominent jihadist ideologue who supports the al Nusra

pages torn from the Muslim holy book.
An angry mob quickly formed and began shouting slogans against Shi'a,
who form a majority in Iran, and then marched to Quetta's main market,
Liaquat Bazar, in the city center trying to shut down shops. Amid the chaos, a gunbattle broke out at Liaquat Bazar that left one dead and three injured.

(Blog) Palestinians Mark 3500 Years of Imaginary History
Wednesday, December 11, 2013
Front Page Magazine : Palestinian People Who Came Into Existence 50 Years Ago Plan Mural of Their 3,500 Year History.
Except all the Jewish stuff. Though Palestinian Arab spokespeople have a
history of claiming that Jesus was a Palestinian. (His mother and
grandmother presumably were another story.)
So far I’m just seeing an Arafat mural.
And that makes sense because the project is probably another
glorification bid by Arafat’s unelected band of militias who insist on
calling themselves a government even though their president refuses to
stand for an actual election. And because Palestinian history began with Arafat. As many as 25 Palestinian artists are working on what
could be the crowning artistic achievement of their lives – and the Arab
world’s largest-ever mural.
But for the artists working on the unfinished project, the
1,000-square-meter mural, dubbed “Huna Canaan” (“Here is Canaan”), isn’t
just a painting. Rather, it’s an illustration of more than 3,500 years
of Palestinian history.
In a tediously predictable bait and switch, local Arabs are claiming
to be Palestinians… and Canaanites. Considering that the latter are long
extinct and the former were never a people.Some Zionists did flirt with a regional Canaanite identity that would unite them and the Arabs together.
It was a rather stupid idea considering that neither Jews nor Arabs are Canaanites and that the history of Israel began with a long struggle with the Canaanites, interrupted by Egyptian slavery, that concluded with their eventual expulsion.
But the Canaanites were at least a people. Which is more than can be said for the Palestinians, which is, in the most optimistic pro-Palestinian take, is still a reference to another non-Arabic people.
The Palestinian Arabs claiming to be Canaanites is like Elizabeth Warren claiming to be Native American. It’s worse, because the Arab conquests took place at a much later date. Hat tip : RoP

Asia Bibi has been on death row in Pakistan for four years now.
Christian mother of five daughters worked as a day labourer on a field.
When she was told to get water for the workers, the Muslim women refused
to drink it.
Since a Christian woman had touched the jar, the water had
become impure. Rumours were spread. Asia Bibi was said to have insulted
“Prophet” Mohammed. By an angry Muslim crowd she was dragged to the
mosque where she was told to renounce her Christian faith. When she
refused, she was first beaten, then committed to local police, and later
sentenced to death for blasphemy. On December 7th, Sabatina James, a Pakistani convert to Christianity,
organised a rally and a candlelight vigil for Aisa Bibi and all
persecuted Christians in the world in the German City of Stuttgart.
Again some angry Muslims tried to disturb the vigil, but after smashing a
glass on the ground, they had to draw back, since the protesters were
simply too many. This clearly shows what it takes to stop the
persecution of Christians – more of us!
Now, Christmas is getting closer, and many Christians in Syria, Egypt
and other Muslim countries fear for their lives. Maybe this video can
encourage some people to finally stand up against this.
This Syrian bishop’s stance is a refreshing one for those of us who are used to the mealy-mouthed platitudes and absolute pacifism dispensed with depressing regularity by Western Christian leaders. Will the percentage of Christians in our countries have to be reduced to single digits before we realize that organized self-defense is the only alternative to the annihilation of Christianity?
The report from ANSAmed: Syria: Orthodox Bishop to Press, ‘Christians Take Up Arms’ Luqa al-Khoury, ‘all methods of self-defense are legitimate’
(ANSAmed) — Beirut — A Greek Orthodox Syrian bishop
invited young Christians to take up arms to defend “the homeland” and
the Christian presence in Syria. In an interview published on the website of Panarab-Iraqi newspaper
Azzaman, and republished Tuesday morning in several Middle Eastern media
outlets, Bishop Luqa al-Khoury said, “Every Christian youth capable of
taking up arms, should do so and defend Syria [...] Christians are
prayerful and peaceful, but it seems that today, faced with these
people, prayer and peace aren’t enough anymore.”
The Syrian bishop
confirmed his stance on Libyan TV’s LBC, saying that declarations
attributed to him by Azzaman weren’t correct, but that, “in this
situation, all methods of self-defense are legitimate.” Al-Khoury added,
“Syrian Christians won’t leave Syria of their own will, because they
are attached to their land. Christians and Muslims have been living (in Syria) for over 1,600
years [...] Syrian Christians aren’t afraid even though the main goal of
those who target the churches is to attack Christians’ historic
The proposition that anti-Zionism is inherently anti-Semitic does not
mean that anti-Zionists necessarily hold classically anti-Semitic
beliefs: anti-Zionism is a variant of anti-Semitism, even if it
sometimes also manifests itself as a cover for a more traditional
variety of anti-Semitism. Many anti-Zionists are probably sincere,
therefore, when they deny accusations of anti-Semitism.
irrelevant, however, because their agenda can be anti-Semitic in deed if
not in intent. The bearer of prejudiced views may still be prejudiced
even while ignorant of the nature of his offence: one need not be a
wife-beater to be a misogynist, if one also believes that a woman’s
place is in the home.
Once one accepts that anti-Zionism is inherently anti-Semitic, the
world presents itself as a much darker and more sinister place. It means
that people to whom we were previously willing to give the benefit of
the doubt should now be taken to task. It requires the sober
realisation that colleagues whose anti-Israel prejudice we could
previously isolate as a merely political difference, are part of a
malicious historical trend of treating Jews as politically inferior,
whether they know it or not.
Fruits of multiculturalism: Sweden shocked after woman raped to death by Somali immigrant
Muslims have descended on Norway and Sweden.
A 34 year old immigrant from Somalia was arrested for savagely
attacking a woman in the parking garage of a Sheraton hotel in Sweden.
The woman died while being raped. Police say the perpetrator continued
to rape the woman’s corpse well after she had died. The Somalian was apprehended by police while still in the act of raping the murdered woman. Sweden and Norway are in the middle of a massive epidemic of violent
rapes. Crime statistics show that rapes in both countries are
overwhelmingly perpetrated by Muslim immigrants. 2013 figures were given in a recent report by Swedish Public Radio. In
the first seven months of 2013, over 1,000 Swedish women reported being
raped by Muslim immigrants. Over 300 of those were under the age of 15.
The number of rapes is up 16% compared to 2012 numbers. From : EOTW
Delivery Doctor Told to Kill Baby to Hide Pre-Marital Sex
The Express Tribune : LAHORE: A baby girl born just four months after her parents’ wedding and then allegedly given away to protect the couple’s reputation was returned to her parents on Tuesday.
The parents, Naeem and Sana, wed on October 28, 2012, and some four months later, a baby was delivered at Rana Welfare Hospital Foundation in Shahdara Town, according to a police investigation.
The couple allegedly told the deliverer of the baby, Dr Tahir Mehmood, that they could not keep the child as it would bring shame to their families knowing that she had been conceived out of wedlock. They told him he could either kill the baby or keep her himself, according to the investigation.
Emirates 24/7 : A Filipina woman ran amok at a hospital in Saudi Arabia where her husband was to have circumcision after converting to Islam, screaming to doctors not to cut his organ off, a newspaper in the Gulf Kingdom reported on Tuesday.
The unnamed Filipino has just converted to Islam and decided to go to hospital in the southern Saudi province of Jazan to have a circumcision operation on advice by preachers who persuaded him to turn to the new religion.
“His wife went mad and followed him to the hospital where she started to cry and scream, thinking her husband would have his organ removed.”
Sada daily said.
“Hospital officials struggled to convince her that circumcision is good for men and does not involve the removal of the organ…but she was not listen and continued to scream and shout, prompting her husband to change his mind about having the operation and converting to Islam.”
Islamophobic Cuisine: Muslim refugees protest the food the charitable Norway citizens are providing them, it's "racism"

You might think that the Muslims who have been evacuated from

correct language of subdued. The only countries where atheists are in mortal danger are all Muslim.
"Atheists face death in 13 countries, global discrimination: study," By Reuters, December 9, 2013
The study, The Freethought Report 2013, was issued by the
International Humanist and Ethical Union (IHEU), a global body uniting
atheists, agnostics and other religious skeptics, to mark United
Nations' Human Rights Day on Tuesday.
(Reuters) - In 13 countries around the world, all of them
Muslim, people who openly espouse atheism or reject the official state
religion of Islam face execution under the law, according to a detailed
study issued on Tuesday.
And beyond the Islamic nations, even some of the West's apparently
most democratic governments at best discriminate against citizens who
have no belief in a god and at worst can jail them for offences dubbed
blasphemy, it said.

Muslim group to march in Brick Lane against drinking and selling of alcohol
Muslim group will march through Brick Lane on Friday to campaign
against the drinking and selling of alcohol, which they say is “sinful”
under Islamic law.
Members of The Shariah Project say drinking alcohol is “strictly
prohibited” and hope to highlight the ills of alcohol with a rally after
Friday prayers on December 13. Spokesman Abu Rumaysah, 30, said: “There’s a lot of problems in the area
like anti-social behaviour caused by drinking and a lot of the Muslims
are involved in selling alcohol in their shops.” He added: “The one who is not a Muslim is already going to the hell
fire. The one who drinks or sells alcohol ... God can forgive if he
mends his ways.” Mr Rumaysah, who lives in Waltham Forest where the group is based, said hate preacher

Why Isn't Kerry Listening to What the Radicals Are Saying? By by Khaled Abu Toameh
Gatestone Institute : Kerry needs to listen to what Hamas and other groups are saying in Arabic.
Hamas is not the only Palestinian party that would reject any
U.S.-sponsored agreement. Most of the Palestinian groups...have already
expressed their opposition to the Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
As U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry pursues his efforts to reach a
peace agreement between the Palestinian Authority [PA] leadership and
Israel, Hamas reaffirmed that it would not honor any deal that does not
meet its goals.
The Hamas announcement serves as a reminder that any US-brokered deal
between Israel and the PA will not mean the end of the conflict. In fact, PA President Mahmoud Abbas is not in a position to sign any document that calls for an end to the conflict with Israel.
Abbas has no control over the Gaza Strip, which has been under the
rule of Hamas since the summer of 2007. Any agreement he signs with
Israel would only apply to those areas under the control of the PA, in
the West Bank or territories handed over to him by Israel.
Radical Islamist cleric Abu Qatada, deported by Britain in

The judge adjourned the case until Dec. 24 after a brief hearing which was open to the media but with cameras banned. After his deportation, Jordanian military prosecutors charged Abu
Qatada with conspiracy to carry out terrorist acts. If convicted he
could face a minimum of 15 years’ hard labour.
Britain’s expulsion of Abu Qatada came after Amman and London
ratified a treaty guaranteeing that evidence obtained by torture would
not be used in his retrial and that the proceedings would be
The Palestinian-born preacher was condemned to death in his
absence in 1999 for conspiracy to carry out terror attacks, including on
the American school in Amman, but this was immediately commuted to life
imprisonment with hard labour.
The new, moderate face Iran is showing the world belies a
sinister spike in executions in the country, with hundreds killed for
such crimes as “waging war against God,” according to a human rights
At least 529 people have been put to death in Iran this year,
including more than 300 since President Hassan Rouhani assumed office in
August, according to the Iran Human Rights Documentation Center. Other
groups estimate the number killed in Iran at more than 600 this year.
The stepped-up pace of public executions comes even as Rouhani basks
in a deal with the West to drop sanctions against the Islamic Republic
following his well-publicized “charm offensive.”
“Under the shadow of negotiations, however, Iran’s appalling human
rights situation has hardly changed,” Iranian activists Payam Akhavan
and Shirin Ebadi wrote.
(WSJ) It is heartening to see for once ("The Real News From Israel,"
Review, Nov. 30) acknowledgment of what Israel has achieved despite the
never-ending threats. It is also instructive to compare how Israel's
forward-looking absorption of refugees contrasts with the zero-sum game
still played by Palestinian leaders and the broader Arab world.
In the decades following the failed 1948 Arab invasion of Israel, over
900,000 Jews fled or were expelled from Arab countries. Their
descendants form roughly half of all Israelis. They came to Israel
penniless and were initially housed in pitiful tent camps. Yet they
looked forward and rebuilt their lives. Imagine what could have been achieved if the Arab world, with its vast
land and oil resources, had similarly uplifted the Palestinian refugees. Doron Lubinsky Atlanta Whatever Israel's faults, it is the only fully functional nation in the
Middle East that lives by and respects Western freedoms and values. How
can Israel, surrounded by states that want it destroyed and lacking any
of the natural resources that sustain the region's authoritarian
regimes, thrive while neighbors are consumed by sectarian wars, civil
strife, abject poverty and hatred Israel's existence is a miracle. Unless U.S. leaders want to be on the
wrong side of miracles, values and history, there should be no moral
ambiguity when it comes to helping secure an Israeli beacon of light in a
very dark and hostile part of the world. David Wilson Washington
City Journal : Nelson Mandela lived several lives: Communist militant, pacifist prisoner, and charismatic president.
He was also the only recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize to receive both the USSR’s International Lenin Peace Prize and the American Presidential Medal of Freedom. What was the thread linking these successive and somewhat contradictory lives?
Let me propose a hypothesis that his prison guards would certainly confirm, as would the Afrikaners who negotiated the end of apartheid with him: Mandela’s Christian faith led him from violence to redemption.
Mandela was a Christian, as I learned during a long conversation with him at a 1992 meeting in Durban of the South African Foundation, a business-backed anti-apartheid organization.
The aura surrounding him then, felt by all who spoke with Mandela, was more mystical than political. Most South Africans, whatever their skin color, are Christians. The country’s ruling Afrikaners saw themselves as a tribe of Israel in exile. They adhered to an assiduous reading of the Old Testament, and an understanding of Christianity that they spread throughout South Africa.
UK: Baby-faced Birmingham gang's reign of terror ends in ASBO
gang of baby-faced thugs – including one aged just 13 – have been
banned from two Birmingham neighbourhoods for throwing rocks at
The schoolboy yobs struck fear into the hearts of law-abiding residents
in Washwood Heath and Bordesley Green and laughed at the law despite
being arrested dozens of times. They also hurled racial insults at community members, vandalised buses and verbally abused other passengers. None of the thugs was older than 15 and the youngest – 13-year-old
Sajeer Khan – looked younger still on a West Midlands Police mug shot. Now Khan, his brother Kabir, 15, and Hamza Shafiq, 14, have all been hit
with three-year anti-social behaviour orders banning them from parts of
Washwood Heath and Bordesley Green. Hassan Hussain, also 15, was banned from the same areas unless he was accompanied by his father. “I congratulate the bravery of the local community who felt empowered to make a change and reclaim their neighbourhood,” said

His Navy Cross citation
The President of the United States
of America takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Corporal
Clifford M. Wooldridge, United States Marine Corps, for extraordinary
heroism while serving as Vehicle Commander, Combined Anti-Armor Platoon
White, Weapons Company, Third Battalion, Seventh Marines, Regimental
Combat Team 2, FIRST Marine Division (Forward), I Marine Expeditionary
Force (Forward) Afghanistan, on 18 June 2010 in support of Operation
When their mounted patrol came
under intense enemy fire, Corporal Wooldridge and his squad dismounted
and maneuvered on the suspected enemy location. Spotting a group of
fifteen enemy fighters preparing an ambush, Corporal Wooldridge led one
of his fire teams across open ground to flank the enemy, killing or
wounding at least eight and forcing the rest to scatter.
As he held
security alone to cover his fire team's withdrawal, he heard voices from
behind an adjacent wall. Boldly rushing around the corner, he came
face-to-face with two enemy fighters at close range, killing both of
them with his M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon. As he crouched back behind
the wall to reload, he saw the barrel of an enemy machine gun appear
from around the wall. Without hesitation, he dropped his empty weapon
and seized the machine gun barrel.
He overwhelmed the enemy fighter in
hand-to-hand combat, killing him with several blows to the head with
the enemy's own machine gun. His audacious and fearless actions thwarted
the enemy attack on his platoon. By his bold and decisive leadership,
undaunted courage under fire, and total dedication to duty, Corporal
Wooldridge reflected great credit upon himself and upheld the highest
traditions of the Marine Corps and of the United States Naval Service.
Here's how his summary of action (a longer version of the story, used to approve the citation) recounts the struggle:
Wooldridge then took cover back around the corner and quickly began to
reload. While attempting to reload his weapon, he saw the barrel of a
machine gun appear around the corner of the wall just a few feet from
Without hesitation, he threw his empty SAW to the ground, and
grabbed the barrel of the machine gun.
Corporal Wooldridge then wrestled the
surprised enemy fighter to the ground. As the two grappled for control
of the machine gun, the enemy fighter released the machine gun and
reached for one of his grenades in an attempt to kill himself and
Corporal Wooldridge immediately took control of the
machine gun and beat the enemy fighter to death by hitting him with
several blows to the head with his own weapon before the enemy could
pull the pin on the grenade.
Shortly after, the remaining members of
his team came around the corner and witnessed the three dead enemy
fighters and Corporal Wooldridge standing over one fighter holding the
