UK: Jihad murderer & family on dole 20 years, cost taxpayers $600,000
Wednesday, March 04, 2015
Jihad Watch : “MPs said they were horrified that the child of a family given
refugee status, citizenship and benefits had returned the favour by
orchestrating the murder of two of its citizens.”
Get used to it, MPs,
because you’re going to be seeing a great deal more of it. Not only is
Britain galloping toward its own ruin, but its taxpayers are paying for
the privilege. “Jihadi John family’s 20 years on benefits:
How it’s cost taxpayers
up to £400k to house fanatic and his relatives in upmarket areas,” by
James Slack and Paul Bentley and Sam Marsden for the Daily Mail, March 3, 2015 :
Jihadi John and his asylum-seeking family have milked the British benefits system for 20 years, the Mail can reveal today. Housing the Islamic State executioner and his relatives in affluent parts of London has cost taxpayers up to £400,000.
One landlord said Mohammed Emwazi’s family were ‘parasites’ and
‘tenants from hell’. Incredibly, they are still believed to be pocketing
£40,000 a year in handouts despite there being no sign of them in
Britain. Emwazi’s father Jasem, who has six children, is back in his native Kuwait – the country he claimed he fled fearing for his life.
“Even if Israel Has to Stand Alone, Israel Will Stand”
“This is a bad deal — we’re better off without it.”
Gates of Vienna : Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu addressed the U.S. Congress
this morning, at the invitation of Speaker of the House John Boehner.
His primary topic was the current nuclear weapons deal with Iran being
negotiated by the “P5+1”, which is reportedly close to being finalized.
Below is a CSPAN video of the entire speech:
Shamefully, the decapitator of hostages is being made out to be a victim
National Review : Mohammed Emwazi, aka Jihadi John, the masked, British-accented butcher of hostages on ISIS videos, makes an unlikely victim, to say the least.
The entire point of the videos is to advertise his savagery and that of the hellish cause he serves. Yet, shamefully, even he can claim the expiating status of victimhood and get a sympathetic hearing.
According to his own self-pitying e-mails prior to his star turn as a knife-wielding executioner, Emwazi was harried by British intelligence beyond human endurance.
Some so-called civil libertarians have picked up on his plaint to argue that a good, promising young Muslim man was pushed into the arms of a medieval terror group by the Brits. “Jihadi John: ‘Radicalized’ by Britain” was the title of a press release from the terrorist-defending, British “human rights” group Cage. It maintains that young Muslims like Mohammed Emwazi have “turned to violence because of British counter-terrorism policies coupled with long standing grievances over Western foreign policy.”
The Washington Post, which broke the news last week that Emwazi was Jihadi John, ran a piece about his run-in with British authorities when trying to travel to Kuwait in 2010 headlined “The moment Jihadi John may have become a terrorist.”
Netanyahu Lavishes Praise on Obama in Speech: 'I Called the President, and He Was There'
National Review : Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu turned the other cheek during his joint speech before Congress on March 3, praising President Obama even while the White House snubs him and seeks to discredit his stance on Iranian nuclear negotiations.
“We appreciate all that President Obama has done for Israel,” he said. “Some of it is widely known . . . Some of what the president has done for Israel is less well-known.” The prime minister listed all the times he called Obama and received immediate aid, including the 2010 Carmel forest fire and the siege of the Israeli embassy in Cairo during the 2011 unrest. “In each of those moments,
I called the president, and he was there,” Netanyahu said. “And some of what the president has done for Israel might never be known, because it touches on some of the most sensitive and strategic issues that arise between an American president and an Israeli prime minister.” “But I know it!” he continued. “And I will always be grateful to President Obama for that support.”
There is no question about whether President Obama — along with Secretary of State John Kerry and the editorial pages of many newspapers — has a particular dislike of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. But there is another question: Why? And the answer is due to an important rule of life that too few people are aware of:
Those who do not confront evil resent those who do. Take the case at hand. The prime minister of Israel is at the forefront of the greatest battle against evil in our time — the battle against violent Muslims. No country other than Israel is threatened with extinction, and it is Iran and the many Islamic terror organizations that pose that threat. It only makes sense, then, that no other country feels the need to warn the world about Iran and Islamic terror as much as does Israel.
That’s why when Benjamin Netanyahu speaks to the United Nations about the threat Iran poses to his country’s survival and about the metastasizing cancer of Islamist violence, he, unfortunately, stands alone. Virtually everyone listening knows he is telling the truth. And most dislike him for it. Appeasers hate those who confront evil.
Given that this president is the least likely of any president in American history to confront evil — or even identify it — while Benjamin Netanyahu is particularly vocal and eloquent about both identifying and confronting evil, it is inevitable that the former will resent the latter. The negotiations with Iran over its nuclear weapons program are today’s quintessential example. Those who will not confront a tyranny engaged in terror from Argentina to the Middle East, and which is committed to annihilating another country, will deeply resent Israel and its leader.
While under fierce attack from President Obama, the Israeli prime minister defends Western values and speaks the truth about Iran
National Review : The leader of the free world will be addressing Congress on Tuesday.
The American president is doing everything possible to undermine him.
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu leads a nation surrounded by
enemies, a nation so small that it narrows at one point to just 9.3
Yet, in a world where the Oval Office is manned by someone openly
apologetic for most American exercises of power; and where Western
Europe’s economy is enervated, its people largely faithless, and its
leadership feckless; and where Freedom House has found “an overall drop
in [global] freedom for the ninth consecutive year,” the safeguarding of
our civilization might rely more on leaders who possess uncommon moral
courage than on those who possess the most nukes or biggest armies.
The clash between modernity and medievalism need not be a clash
between progress and tradition. The traditions of the Jewish people go
back thousands of years. They are the source of our collective values
and the foundation of our national strength.
At the same time, the Jewish people have always looked towards the
future. Throughout history, we have been at the forefront of efforts to
expand liberty, promote equality, and advance human rights. We champion
these principles not despite of our traditions but because of them.
I have placed the link of this new site, The Rebel Media on the left of my website, which was formed after Sun News closed down. It advocates Freedom of Religion, that all man are created equal and that no religion should be given a free pass.
Copts Beheaded in Libya, Copt Burned Alive in Egypt by Ashraf Ramelah
Sunday, March 01, 2015
Below is the press release from Voice of the Copts about recent brutality inflicted on Coptic Christians in Egypt and Libya.
Gates of Vienna : Once again, tragedy strikes the Coptic community with the brutal murders of twenty-one Christian Copts in Libya.
Living under constant threat of a hate-driven and blood-thirsty Islam, Copts of Egypt have learned to expect anything at any time, and mourners go about the streets. A few days ago a young Coptic man was burned alive in the province of Al-Minya.
Muslims harassed and targeted this youth in the heart of a peaceful village hoping to spark the retaliation of Copts in order to trigger destabilization of the region. But Copts have not reacted, waiting instead for law enforcement to take its course.
For more than 1,430 years Copts have suffered the brutality and aggression of Islamic doctrine along with Jews and other non-Muslims.
History shows how Islamic doctrine played an important role during WWI and in WWII with the massacre of more than six million Jews in Europe. As well, Muslims become victims of their own system. A video showing a Jordanian pilot hostage set ablaze recently caused Jordan’s leader to respond with military action.
Egypt leads the world against terror
However, one leader who has truly taken the lead against terrorism in the moment is Egyptian president Al-Sisi as the Egyptian military strikes at ISIS in Libya. Al-Sisi’s war against Islamic terrorism began during his presidential election campaign when he asked for the renewal of Islamic discourse and implied that the status of religious minorities should be one of equality as he declared that “there are no religious minorities in Egypt.”
Blazing Cat Fur : “…Even if many Muslims came to Europe seeking economic opportunity, they are often defined as victims of racism and oppression.
So, the thinking goes, if you are a victim of racism and oppression, how can you be racist yourself?
The Palestinians repeat almost daily that they would like to kill the Israelis, while the Israelis say they would like peace.
What follows are usually bitter, politically-motivated denunciations of Israel by Europe, masquerading as human rights.
Despite the increasingly savage state of the world and an openly genocidal Iran — soon to be nuclear, if it is not already — Israeli leaders remain the ones Europeans love to accuse, hate and demonize.”
I do not doubt the assertion that Europe will sacrifice its Jews and Israel in the vain hope it will solve its Muslim problem.There are now 44 million Muslims in Europe.
In Europe, evoking the memory of Auschwitz has become difficult; tomorrow, it may be impossible.
The ceremony marking the seventieth anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp was held on January 27 -- and will likely be the last commemoration of its kind. The Nazis wanted a Europe without Jews. They killed six million, but in their ultimate goal, they failed.
Three hundred survivors were invited; all were more than eighty years old.
Although filmed testimonies will remain, there may be no more direct witnesses.
While European political leaders speak of Auschwitz with the solemn formula of "never again," it increasingly seems meaningless. Surveys show that in most European countries, including Germany, a growing number of people want to turn the page, and say they want forget about the Holocaust in a way they do not say they want to forget about, for instance, the Crucifixion.
The bloody ballad of Broken Hill: How jihad came to the Australian outback in 1915
Blazing Cat Fur : In November 1914, acting under pressure from his German ally, the Ottoman Sultan Mehmed V, who doubled as Caliph of all Muslims, issued a holy commandment directed at Muslims worldwide: they were immediately to rise up in arms against Britain, France, Russia and their allies, who were at war with Germany and the Ottoman Empire.
Although the British took the threat seriously – this was "the parched grasses that awaits the spark" in John Buchan's celebrated phrase in his novel Greenmantle – the call to jihad was for the most part neglected. In the Caucasus, some Russian military came over to the other side. In Mesopotamia, a British officer had his throat slit.
And in Singapore on 15 February, 1915, following rumours they might be sent to Turkey to fight fellow Muslims, there was a mutiny involving 850 Sepoys from the 5th Native Light Infantry Regiment of the Indian Army. The uprising was put down a week later, after 47 soldiers and civilians had been killed.
Aside from this handful of examples, the only other response to the Turkish sultan's call was in the least likely spot, on the other side of the world, in the Australian mining town of Broken Hill.
Two years ago, the Australian writer Murray Bail sent me a photo of an oil painting. It was by the artist Sam Byrne, who used to live in Broken Hill, and had the tantalising title Turks Fire on Picnic Train, 1 January, 1915. It pictured the only enemy action on Australian soil in the First World War.
The train was a steam train. The picnickers were in open trucks – sitting ducks. A young woman was killed, and three men. The two 'Turks' had been in an Afghan camel-driver team, and one had branched off into the ice-cream business. Clearly, they were not good shots. The men then ran away, and were gunned down by the cops.
Raymond Ibrahim : Speaking of the Crusades (as Obama recently did ),
Dr. Bill Warner of the Center for the Study of Political Islam has
created a nifty video (below) that maps out the location and amount of
jihads throughout the centuries versus the location and amount of
crusades throughout the centuries.
Thomas Madden — former Chair of the History Department at Saint Louis
University and Director of the Center for Medieval and Renaissance
Studies — wrote this article in 2002 when President Bush used the word
“crusade” in a positive sense, creating controversy. Its relevancy
today is that Obama invoked the Crusades in a negative sense, also
Madden presents the most recent scholarship on the Crusades —
scholarship that completely contradicts the popular image of these wars
that permeates much of Hollywood, the writings of amateurs such as Karen Armstrong and, as seen, the worldview of Barack Obama.

Australia: PM announces he will strip returning jihadis of citizenship
Tuesday, February 24, 2015
Jihad Watch : This is long overdue. Other countries in the West should follow suit.
Obama should also consider imitating Abbott’s relative forthrightness
in articulating what we’re up against: “The Islamist death-cult has
declared war on the world.” The word “Islamist” is often used to create
an artificial distance between jihadis and the teachings of Islam that
inspire them, but at least Abbott is properly identifying the wellspring
from which they come, which could lead to policies properly formulated
to deal with the actual threat — policies that have so far been notably
absent from the West’s response to the threat. “‘The Islamist death cult has declared war on the world':
announces he will STRIP jihadists of their citizenship as it’s revealed
THIRTY extremists have returned home to Australia from the Middle East,”
by Freya Noble and Daniel Piotrowski,
Islamic State released its latest gruesome propaganda video less than two hundred miles from the island of Crete, and less than six hundred from the Italian island of Lampedusa.
Gates of Vienna : So the Islamic State is no longer just “over there in the sandbox”. It’s on the Mediterranean littoral, just a short sea voyage from the soft underbelly of Europe.
In fact, that’s the explicit message of the knife thrust into the air by the mujahid near the end of the video — he is pointing to Rome, the eventual destination of ISIS.It’s part of my job to watch these Islamic butchery videos when they come out. It’s not something I want to do. These videos serve a dual purpose: they are produced to “cast terror into the hearts of the unbelievers” (as required by Koran 3:151), and they serve as a recruiting tool for young Muslim men eager to shed infidel blood.
The horror in this most recent video is intensified by the idyllic seaside backdrop for the familiar ritual slaughter of the doomed captives, who are marched along the beach just beyond the edge of the breaking waves before being beheaded on their knees in the sand. The executioner utters the usual rhetoric, augmented with belligerent imprecations aimed specifically at Christians.When I saw the knives approaching the throats of the victims, I averted my eyes to avoid the nightmare-inducing footage of lovingly documented ritual slaughter.
Every ten or fifteen seconds I would steal a glance to see if that part was over. When it finally was — when the heads had been separated from the bodies and placed on display — I started watching again.At that point I thought I had seen the worst, but I was wrong. The final thirty seconds of the video turned out to be the most horrific of all. After the bodies and heads were shown, the camera panned slowly across the sand, where runnels of blood were flowing into the surf.
It then turned and lifted to show the breaking waves, which were deep red to the left and right as far as the eye could see, and also for a long way out from shore.the ISIS production team had gone to the local halal slaughterhouse and acquired barrels of cows’ or sheep’s blood, and dumped them on that beach to augment the human blood, to make sure that the surf was good and red.They deliberately create these elaborate images of slaughter and exsanguination to encourage would-be jihad warriors to make hijra to the Islamic state, and also to entice infidel psychopaths to convert to Islam.
The Nazis and the Communists did not approach this level of horror. Not even North Korea can match it. Most reports included the fact that the victims were Christians, and were slaughtered because of their religion. Even CNN mentioned it. But not President Obama. He managed to condemn the massacre without referencing anything more than the Egyptian nationality of the men who were slaughtered. Funny about that.
A reader who had seen some of the news stories wrote to ask whether I
had seen the video, saying that it no longer seemed to be available
online. I told him that yes, I had seen it If you’ve made it all the way to then end of this post, you probably wish you had never heard about any of this. And I can’t help but sympathize with you. It’s at times like this
that I wish I had never gone into this line of work.
I could have done
something else, something tedious and boring and quiet, with no headless
bodies on the shore. No bloody surf. Or I could have just sat by the kitchen window, watching the birds and the squirrels in the yard. But here we are. This is what is really happening in the world, right now, in our time. This is the time that is given us. It can’t be avoided. Sooner or later we will all have to face up to the horror that is upon us. before it had been taken down
A reader who had seen some of the news stories wrote to ask whether I had seen the video, saying that it no longer seemed to be available online. I told him that yes, I had seen it before it had been taken down by YouTube.He wrote back with a series of questions, which I answered as best I could :
How come you get to see it, but the public does not?
Anybody could see it who had the URL, until it was taken down.
How many minutes long was the video?
I think about ten minutes.
Blazing Cat Fur : Entryism, the favourite tactic of the 1980s’ Militant Tendency, is when a political party or institution is infiltrated by groups with a radically different agenda.
Since Militant’s Trotskyites were expelled from the Labour Party, the word has rather fallen out of fashion. But now, according to one Muslim leader, Islamic radicals are practising entryism of their own — into the heart of Whitehall – courtesy of a woman who was until recently a government minister.
Baroness Warsi, the first Muslim woman to sit in Cabinet, handed official posts to people linked to Islamist groups, including a man involved in an “unpleasant and bullying” campaign to win planning permission for the controversial London “megamosque” proposed by a fundamentalist Islamic sect.
He sits – alongside other radicals or former radicals and their allies – on a “cross-Government working group on anti-Muslim hatred” set up by Lady Warsi and Nick Clegg, the Deputy Prime Minister. Some members of the group are using their seats at the table to urge that Whitehall work with Islamist and extremist-linked bodies, including one described by the Prime Minister as a “political front for the Muslim Brotherhood”.
Some are also pressing to lift bans on foreign hate preachers from entering Britain, including Zakir Naik, who has stated that “every Muslim should be a terrorist”. Be certain the same infiltration is occurring here.
Palestinian Terrorists want to ethnically cleanse the Jews from Judea and Sumeria
Obama’s insistence that Islamic State and its ilk attack because of perceived Western misbehavior is completely at odds with observed reality.A speech by Caroline Glick (in English) and a promotion for her new book "Annex it Now". It's in English.
Krauthammer’s Take: Christians Being Wiped Out Abroad, But WH Bizarrely Focuses on Muslim Anxieties
Friday, February 20, 2015
National Review : What was missing from the just-ended three-day “Countering Violent Extremism” summit held by the White House?
“Anything of any importance,” says Charles Krauthammer. “The idea behind it is the president wanted to assuage the feelings and the anxieties of the Muslim community here and around the world,” said Krauthammer on Thursday’s Special Report. “This is a good thing to do.”
National Review : In Washington, they are practically praying for a Christian terrorist.
At a breakfast in January, President Obama reached all the way back to the Crusades for an example of violence purportedly motivated by Christian extremism. Days later, when three Muslims were murdered in Chapel Hill, social media erupted with demands that Christians be called upon to condemn the attacks in the same way that Muslims are called upon to condemn acts of Islamic terrorism, and the disappointment was palpable when the man charged with those murders turned out to be a militant atheist and Rachel Maddow fan who was angry about a parking dispute.
State Department flack Marie Harf, fresh off her jobs-for-jihadis bit, offered up Joseph Kony — a practitioner of Ancholi mystical traditions with 88 wives, a flair for Biblical apocalypticism, and, if we take him at his word, 13 spirits (one of them Chinese) dwelling within him — as an example of “Christian militant” terrorism. This isn’t new: Timothy McVeigh (agnostic) and John Salvi (a schizophrenic who believed himself to be one of the thieves crucified with Jesus and who obsessed over an imaginary scheme in which the Vatican would issue its own currency) have been presented from time to time as evidence that the violent jihadist tendency is not limited to the religion of which jihad is a central tenet.
Meanwhile, in the real world . . . President Barack Obama, who still believes that his job consists of giving speeches, convened a “Summit on Countering Violent Extremism,” the purpose of which was to provide a platform for the president to give a keynote speech. In it he insisted, as he does, that Islamic terrorism has nothing to do with Islam, and that arguments to the contrary only lend credibility to the Islamic terrorist organizations that have nothing to do with Islam.
He cited a letter from a fifth-grader, a Muslim girl named Sabrina, who wrote: “If some Muslims do bad things, that doesn’t mean all of them do.” President Obama was impressed with these remarks — “the wisdom of a little girl,” he called them. If the alternative is Marie Harf, we suppose he could do worse.
The problem is that (1) some of the world’s Muslims do sympathize with Islamic-supremacist views, (2) there are an awful lot of them, and (3) Islamic organizations are the preeminent practitioners of terrorism around the world at the moment.
President Obama can try to explain to Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi and his colleagues that their project is not a genuinely Islamic one. Drop Joseph Kony off at St. Patrick’s Cathedral and his eccentric syncretism is revealed for what it is, but Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi’s Islam is the Islam of millions in Iraq, in Pakistan, in Egypt, in Indonesia. Radical Islam is a longstanding part of Islam, not an amendment to it.
Team Obama’s despicable insistence on calling the dead “Egyptian citizens” rather than Christians is like saying that Adolf Hitler killed six million Europeans in the Holocaust.
Thursday, February 19, 2015
National Review : Did these bloodthirsty ISIS killers yell, “We want jobs!” before conducting these atrocities? Did they scream, “We can’t pay our bills!” before jamming blades into the jugulars of their victims?
These tragically laughable questions apparently are discussed seriously by Team Obama.
This poverty rationale for radical jihad is such a thoroughly discredited cliché, it’s impossible to believe that it must be refuted anew.
Al-Qaeda founder Osama bin Laden was an heir to his father’s billion-dollar construction fortune.
September 11 ringleader Mohamed Atta was the son of a Cairo attorney. Most of the young men in the Hamburg, Germany, cell that conducted the attack were prosperous exchange students. Al-Qaeda’s current leader, Ayman al-Zawahiri, is an Egyptian-born physician. Underwear bomber Abdul Mutallab’s father is the Alan Greenspan of Nigeria.
ISIS sells oil on the black market, earning an estimated $1 million to $3 million daily. It also swiped some $420 million from the vaults of Kurdistan’s central bank in Mosul. It reportedly is operating this year on a $2 billion budget, including a $250 million surplus. (How many American states can say that?) So much for ISIS enduring income inequality.
Poverty exists worldwide. And yet, somehow, poor Paraguayans do not behead their neighbors. Poor Mexicans and Guatemalans do not burn people alive — in or out of cages. Instead, they scamper across America’s southern “border” and seek work. Poor Americans inhabit East L.A., Chicago’s South Side, the Bronx, and the Anacostia district in Washington, D.C. They do not explode themselves with bomb vests.
The sickening, mind-numbing mayhem that pours through our TV screens with a deeply depressing regularity has nothing to do with being overextended on one’s credit cards or feeling tired of eating Top Ramen. This genocidal carnage — plain and simple — is about militant Muslims violently imposing their Islamic “master faith” on “infidels” whom they consider inferior, just as the Nazis forced their Aryan “master race” on those they judged Untermenschen, or subhumans.
Obama appoints Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim to head “Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications”
Jihad Watch : Rashad Hussain was previously the Obama administration’s special
envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the thuggish
international organization that is engaged in a full-scale campaign to
intimidate Western governments into adopting hate speech codes that will
effectively quash criticism of Islam – including jihad violence
perpetrated in its name.
Rashad Hussain is an apposite choice for this
position, since several years ago he defended a notorious U.S.-based
leader of a jihad terrorist group. But someone doesn’t want you to know that, and made a clumsy attempt to cover it up. In 2004, Rashad Hussain, then a Yale law student, declared that the
investigation and prosecution of University of South Florida professor
Sami al-Arian, who ultimately pled guilty to charges involving his
activities as a leader of the terror group Palestinian Islamic Jihad and
was recently deported, was a “politically motivated persecution”
designed “to squash dissent.”
Hussain’s remarks in support of Al-Arian were published in the jihad-enabling Washington Report on Middle East Affairs in November 2004. But now all that has gone down the memory hole. The Washington Report’s
archived version of this November 2004 article lacks two paragraphs
that were included in the original version: the ones quoting Rashad
Hussain. Otherwise the article is unchanged.
The Washington Report editors, caught red-handed, decided to
brazen it out, and blame their accusers – a tried-and-true tactic that
is also frequently employed by jihadists in the West. They insist that
there was no cover-up, and anyone who thinks otherwise is a venomous
Islamophobe: according to CNS News,
“WRMEA news editor and executive director Delinda Hanley denied there
was a ‘cover-up,’ and implied that anti-Muslim discrimination was behind
the fact this was now being raised.”
ISIS Threat Puts Rome on High Alert: ‘Never So Exposed’
Breitber News : ROME, Italy– Rome has dramatically stepped up its security in the
wake of last weekend’s slaughter of Christians in Libya and the Islamic
State’s overt threat to the city.
Outside of Rome’s US embassy
on Via Veneto, increased security has been stationed, and machine guns
have appeared in the hands of guards. A special security taskforce has
been convoked to plan Rome’s response to escalating ISIS threats.
According to reports, “the ISIS threat against Italy is now real and direct,” and intelligence analysts are saying that Italy “has never been so exposed.” Italy closed its embassy in Tripoli on February 15, and Italy’s
defense minister Roberta Pinotti said that the possibility of jihadists
reaching Italy from Libya “cannot be ruled out.”
Rome’s police chief Giuseppe Pecoraro
already requested an extra 500 military personnel earlier this year,
and the city mayor Ignazio Marino has called for reinforced security for
the city’s major monuments and churches, including the Coliseum, the
Pantheon and the Vatican Museums. Rome’s Termini train station has also
seen an increased security presence, along with shopping centers and
The Islamic State released a video on Sunday showing the Islamic
militants beheading 21 Egyptian Christians, in which the masked leader
twice mentions Rome. The video is titled “A Message Signed with Blood to the Nation of the
Cross,” and the leader identifies their position as “on the south of
Rome, on the land of Islam, Libya.” After the beheading, the leader
says: “And we will conquer Rome, by Allah’s permission, the promise of our Prophet, peace be upon him.”
National Review : When American Sniper came out, some people on the left didn’t like it very much — including Michael Moore.
You know who another critic is? Ali Khamenei, the “supreme leader” of Iran. You can read about his criticisms here. He has not seen the movie himself. But he has heard about it from others. And he says that the movie “encourages a Christian or non-Muslim youngster to harass and offend the Muslims.”
You know who has harassed, offended, tortured, and killed more Muslims than the worst Muslim-hater could ever dream of? Ali Khamenei and his evil dictatorship. I don’t think anyone, on either side of the issue, could have
failed to be impressed by the language of Judge Andrew Hanen, who has
delayed President Obama’s executive amnesty.
He wants a coalition of 26
states to have more time to pursue a lawsuit. (For a news article, go here.)
An amnesty would be “virtually irreversible,” he said. “The genie would
be impossible to put back into the bottle.”
