In A Foxhole
“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."

Save the Christians: The Forgotten Refugees
SaveTheChristians The Middle East is the cradle of Christianity, and for two millennia – long before the rise of Islam – Christian communities across the region lived and thrived. Until now.
With the mantra: “we will conquer your Rome, break your crosses, and enslave your women,” ISIS has been successful in its genocide, eradicating almost all traces of Christian heritage in the region; hundreds of holy sites, churches, and entire communities have been purged from existence. Once home to an estimated 1.5 million Christians, Iraq’s Christian population has dwindled to a staggering 200,000.
The Rebel traveled to the Biblical land of Nineveh, now modern-day Batnaya, to assess and document the damage and give a voice to the brave men, women and children, who remained behind. Tickets sold here...........

Facebook “Intellectually Terrorizes” a Human Rights Activist
Jihad Watch : 1.    In August 2016, I called for a peaceful march in front of the White House in defense of oppressed Christians in Egypt. Following that announcement, my account was hacked (the hackers may have had some connection to the Egyptian Intelligence Agency). 

The hackers took control of my Facebook page, through my private email, removed my personal picture and switched it for that of an Islamic extremist, and posted a warning for people to refrain from joining the march claiming that ISIS will blow up the demonstrators. The US Federal Bureau of Investigation was informed for security purposes, and Facebook Administration was contacted regarding this issue, until finally the page was restored ten days later.
2.    On November 24, 2017, I posted an article on Facebook calling for religious reform in the Middle East. The article was deleted, and Facebook Administration did not allow me to post for several days, despite the fact that this was an opinion article, and absolutely did not include any call for hatred or violence.
3.    On December 5, 2017, I posted another opinion on Facebook regarding religious reform. It was removed by Facebook Administration and I was suspended from posting for two weeks.
4.    On February 2, 2018, I posted an opinion regarding Turkey (following its devastating military campaign in north of Syria), recalling the historical fact that the Ottomans have occupied Constantinople since 1453, and saying that one day it will be returned to its original ‘Byzantine’ owners. The post was deleted and my Facebook account was suspended for a month.
I am a US citizen, protected by the US Constitution. Everything I have posted, since I first signed up for my Facebook page, can still be accessed, and none of it violates US laws or Facebook rules. This falls under the freedom of opinion and speech, which is protected by the First Amendment to Constitution in the United States, as well as by international laws and human rights instruments. Being the director of a human rights center in Washington and a public figure, I hold myself accountable ethically and legally for everything I post on Facebook. If anyone takes issue with my writings, they can go to court, and I am ready to defend every word I wrote.

Forget the “Terrorists,” What about Your Own Government, Mr. Sisi? By Raymond Ibrahim
The persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt
Jihad Watch : It is one thing for Egyptian President Sisi not to be able to prevent surprise Islamic terror attacks against Egypt’s Christians, the Copts. But what does one make of the fact that his own government also discriminates against and persecutes the Copts?
Most recently, a court sentenced 19 Muslim defendants to a one-year suspended sentence for attacking an unregistered church near Giza last December 22. Dozens of Muslim rioters had gathered outside the building; they eventually stormed it and “destroyed the church’s contents and assaulted Christians inside.”
Based on this sentencing (from a misdemeanor court no less), the defendants are not required to serve prison time unless they get into trouble again. On the other hand, a Coptic Christian defendant was fined 360,000 Egyptian pounds (equivalent to $20,383) for setting up the unlicensed church. The court’s logic is that, by using an unregistered building as a church, the entire incident is the Copt’s fault — for aggrieving local Muslims.
Meanwhile, the well-known fact is that getting a church permit in Egypt is as difficult as getting a mosque permit is easy — and explains why havoc ensues when Copts merely try to renovate a church, while ten mosques are opened every week. In other words, if the government did not make it so difficult for Copts to congregate and worship, they would not need to resort to using private homes and unregistered buildings. 
After waiting 44 years, the Christians of Nag Shenouda were issued the necessary permits to build a church in 2015. According to a report, local Muslims rioted and burned down the temporary worship tent. When a Christian tried to hold a religious service in his home, another Muslim mob attacked it. Denied a place to worship, the Christians of Nag Shenouda celebrated Easter in the street. Much of this is consistent with the World Watch List 2018, which ranked Egypt the 17th worst nation in the world wherein to be Christian. It found that “officials at any level from local to national” are “strongly responsible” for the “oppression” of Egypt’s Christians.
“Government officials,” the report adds, “also act as drivers of persecution through their failure to vindicate the rights of Christians and also through their discriminatory acts which violate the fundamental rights of Christians.” While authorities themselves are sometimes the persecutors — as when Muslim soldiers beat several Christian soldiers to death on account of their faith, most recently in July 2017 — they more often function as enablers, allowing a culture of impunity to thrive.
All this again begs the question: whereas it may be understandable that Sisi cannot eliminate terrorism — after all, terrorists operate surreptitiously and work “in the shadows” — what about the fact that his very own government (from local police and authorities to top department heads and courtroom judges) is openly biased against the Copts, and right under his nose?

Visiting Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau finds himself in a potentially embarrassing situation after media reported that a convicted Khalistani separatist, Jaspal Atwal, was photographed his wife Sophie Trudeau at an event in Mumbai on February 20.
Multiple Canadian media outlets carried photographs showing Atwal, who was convicted of attempting to murder a former minister of the state of Punjab, standing along with Sophie Trudeau. They also reported that he had also been extended an invitation to a dinner organised for Justin Trudeau at the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi.
In addition, the former Khalistan militant was also photographed in the company of the Canadian Minister of Infrastructure and Communities Amarjeet Sohi at the same event. Jaspal Atwal was convicted of the attempted murder of Punjab minister, Malkiat Singh Sidhu, on Vancouver Island in 1986, he was one of four men who ambushed & shot at Sidhu's car. News agency ANI published the same photos and confirmed the existence of the dinner invite.
However, the invite was in the process of being rescinded, Canadian media outlet CBC reported. Atwal, a former member of the banned militant group International Sikh Youth Federation, was found guilty for attempting to murder Malkiat Singh Sidhu, the then Punjab planning minister, in 1986. (The International Sikh Youth Federation aims to establish an independent homeland for the Sikhs of India in Khalistan.) According to Canadian media reports, Atwal and three other men were each sentenced to 20 years in jail in April 1987 for attempting to assassinate Sidhu on a road near Gold river on Vancouver Island in British Columbia in 1986.
Jaspal Atwal's photograph with Sophie Trudeau comes at time when questions are being raised in India over Justin Truduea's perceived 'softness' in dealing with pro-Khalistan groups. In his meeting with Punjab Chief Minister Amarinder Singh, Trudeau is reported to have said that his government does not support violent extremism of any kind.
Trudeau also reiterated Canada's support for a "united India" during a speech in Mumbai earlier this week.

International Man Of Stupid Justin Trudeau used taxpayer money to fly celebrity chef to India #trudeauinindia
BCF : Vancouver-based celebrity chef Vikram Vij, a vocal Liberal supporter, was flown to India on the government’s dime to cook for a group of top diplomats, CTV News has learned.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has been travelling across India with his family in hopes of boosting business ties with the South Asian nation. The government flew Vij to India to help prepare Indian cuisine for a reception at the residence of the Canadian High Commissioner on Thursday. Vij’s flight and hotel were paid for by taxpayers’ dollars, CTV News has learned.
In a statement to CTV News, a government spokesperson confirmed that Vij was invited to the reception and that his “out-of-pocket expenses” are being covered. “Where appropriate, it is accepted practice for Canadian missions to invite ‎chefs from Canada to showcase Canadian food products and cuisine. Vikram Vij ‎is a prominent Indo-Canadian whose Vancouver restaurants are world-renowned for melding Canadian ingredients and the traditions of Indian cuisine,” the spokesperson said in a statement.
“Mr. Vij generously offered a week of his time, away from his Canadian business, to assist with the menu and food preparation for the Canada Reception. (Global Affairs Canada) is undertaking to cover his out-of-pocket expenses (eg. airfare and accommodation). Mr Vij's involvement will contribute to make the event a memorable celebration of the Canada-India friendship.”

Queen Sophie Trudeau Poses With Convicted Terrorist On India Jaunt #trudeauinindia
Oh Lord what has Trudeau done now. He is only there pandering for votes. We are paying for this insanity.And why is this man getting invites from our politicians? Is he rich? Is he a politician? What does he do?
For God's sake. No more voting in lifelong rich people for high office. Trudeau is up to more shenanigans while seniors are sleeping in cars because of the housing crisis. He came to BC, declared a housing crisis and then ran away with his tail between his legs. What has he actually done to improve the lives of Canadians? The cost of this unnecessary trip alone could provide some homes for people
BCF : Surrey man convicted in 1986 B.C. terrorist shooting poses with Trudeau’s wife, cabinet minister in India.
A Surrey businessman convicted in a 1986 terrorist shooting in B.C. posed with Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and a Canadian cabinet minister during the prime minister’s trip to India. Jaspal Atwal, a one-time member of the now-banned International Sikh Youth Federation, had also been invited to a dinner with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau at the Canadian High Commission in Delhi on Thursday night.
But Atwal told Postmedia that he does not plan to attend the dinner as he is in Mumbai on business. Atwal said in a series of text messages Wednesday that he was in India for Media Waves, a Surrey online radio station. He referred Postmedia to a representative of the radio station who did not return phone calls. Atwal also suggested it was unfair to raise his criminal conviction for shooting a visiting Punjabi cabinet minister on Vancouver Island in 1986 given how long ago the crime occurred.

Turkey is attacking us in Afrin, says SDF commander
Mahmoud Berkhdan
Mahmoud Berkhdan 
On January 20, Turkey began targeting northern Syria with airstrikes and heavy shelling in a campaign that it claims is designed to neutralize a security threat on its southern border. The area under attack, and Afrin, the city from which I fight, is controlled by the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG).
As a commander in the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), which includes the YPG, let me be unequivocal: there is no truth to Turkey’s claims that we are waging war across the border. In fact, the opposite is true; with “Operation Olive Branch,” Turkey is attacking us. And yet, for reasons I cannot comprehend, it is doing so with tacit approval from the international community.
Our forces do not sponsor attacks against the Turkish state. (The YPG has only returned fire against Turkish positions that have shelled us.) Our only war is with jihadists from the Islamic State (ISIS), a fight the United States has supported us in waging. But now, with the fight against ISIS largely over, our international backers have grown quieter – just as Turkey’s rockets have gotten louder.

Assad quietly aids Kurds as Afrin mess drags on
Image result for syrian kurdish forces
Syrian Kurdish Forces
As the US, Russia and Syria’s Assad regime watch Turkey’s military operation against Kurds in northwest Syria grind on, Ankara is pointing fingers.
Speaking ahead of what will no doubt be an awkward visit by US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson this week, Turkish foreign minister Mevlut Cavusoglu accused Washington of intentionally stalling the fight against Islamic State militants as an excuse to maintain ties with Syrian Kurds.
The YPG, as the main Kurdish force fighting Turkey is known, is considered a terrorist group by Ankara, and has been an ally of the US in the fight against ISIS. They are the target of Turkey’s operation “Olive Branch,” which aims to create a Turkish-controlled buffer zone between Turkey and Syria.
“[US-Turkey] relations are at a very critical stage,” Cavusoglu was quoted by the Associated Press as saying. “Either we will improve ties or these ties will totally break down.” The US has publicly said it is not supporting YPG forces in the area, despite longstanding cooperation with the group.

Afrin marks the point of collapse for American influence in Syria
Image result for kurdish fighters
Kurdish Fighters
Abandoned by Washington and under bombardment by the Turkish army, the beleaguered Kurdish forces in the northern Syrian town of Afrin asked for, and received, help from Russia.
A spokesman for the Kurdish YPG militia announced on February 20 that the Russian-backed government of Bashar al-Assad would send reinforcements to Afrin to assist the Kurds. France24 reported that a convoy of pro-Assad forces entering Afrin came under Turkish artillery fire, and Turkey’s President Recep Erdogan claimed the government forces had to turn back.
The situation on the ground is unclear, but what is painfully clear is that Kurds have been abandoned by the United States less than a month after the Pentagon announced the formation of a 30,000-man ‘Border Security Force’ in northern Syria composed mainly of Kurdish fighters who had pushed ISIS out of the area. Turkey responded to the American initiative by invading northern Syria and bombing the Kurds, reportedly killing several hundred civilians. In deference to Turkey, the United States did nothing, so the Kurds asked for help from Russia.

Turkey: Tells Syria not to intervene in its battle against the Kurds, inside Syria.
EOTW : (Ankara)  After it emerged on Monday that pro-Assad militiamen would enter Afrin to assist local Kurdish militias fighting against an incursion by the Turkish military and Syrian rebels affiliated with Ankara.
Turkey has warned the Syrian government that it risks a military confrontation with Ankara . Deputy Prime Minister  Bekir Bozdağ said Turkey is following the situation closely and there has been no official confirmation from Damascus over reports on the regime's involvement in Afrin. "If Assad regime forces enter Afrin it would give a green light to dividing Syria, such a move would cause disaster in the region and would have serious consequences."
The Turkish foreign minister also warned the regime on Monday against entering the Syrian town shortly after Syrian state media  reported that popular forces are to arrive in Afrin area soon to support locals in facing the aggression launched by the Turkish regime on the area since January 20th.It appears that the Turkish pocket dictator has really set the cat amongst the pigeons.
The problem is on the side of the Kurds can be found the Syrians, Russians , the Americans and the Iranians maybe that explains why Erdoğan has been on the phone to both Moscow and Tehran in which to try and save face, as he knows if he drags Turkey into a war with all of the above, his tenure as President for life will end very soon as one thing the Syrians can bring to the table is ground to air missiles and their inclusion will take away the only advantage the Turks have over the Kurds.

You know that Elections are around the corner - Fuel prices down across the board, again
Yes. Petrol is down. Ringgit and stock market is up. People's confidence and consumption is on the rise as seen in the Chinese New year festivities. There are more and more vehicles on the road. Traffic jams are everywhere. Airports are full. Restaurants and holiday resorts are packed. People are shopping in up market malls. The 14th general elections are here. Hooray.  You know that erections, oops, Elections are around the corner !
Malaysiakini : After last week's drastic drop in prices, petrol across the board will again trade at lower rates this week. The Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry announced that from midnight, RON95 will trade at RM2.17 per litre while RON97 will trade at RM2.43 per litre, down six and seven sen respectively.
Diesel will trade at RM2.13 a litre, down six sen from last week. Due to budget constraints, Putrajaya stopped fuel subsidies in March last year and implemented a managed float system that is updated weekly.
Fuel prices are determined by global oil prices based on the Mean of Platts Singapore and the ringgit's strength against the US dollar.

Iraqi Archbishop: Muslim “slow-motion genocide” of Christians began 1400 years ago
Iraqi Archbishop: Muslim “slow-motion genocide” of Christians began 1400 years agoJihad Watch : “Iraqi Archbishop: Muslim ‘Slow-Motion Genocide’ of Christians Began 1400 Years Ago”, by Thomas D. Williams, Breitbart, February 19, 2018:
The violent Muslim persecution of Christians in the Middle East did not begin with the Islamic State’s rise to power in 2014, said Iraqi Archishop Bashar Warda, but rather many centuries ago.
“Having faced for 1,400 years the slow-motion genocide that began long before the ongoing ISIS genocide today, the time for excusing this inhuman behavior and its causes is long since past,” said the Chaldean Archbishop of Erbil in a forceful speech last week at Georgetown University.
According to the archbishop, Islamic persecution of Christians in the Middle East began with the in the 7th century, and thus is a permanent fixture that was present from the very beginning.
“The harsh truth to this question is that without an end to this persecution and violence there is no future for religious pluralism in Iraq or anywhere else in the Middle East for that matter,” he said.

In not so great britain : Muslim rape gang sex crimes against children at “record high”
UK: Muslim rape gang sex crimes against children at “record high”
Jihad Watch : “Campaigners Warn Reported Sex Crimes Against Children at Record High”, by Virginia Hale, Breitbart, February 20, 2018: Breitbart London previously reported how an examination of previous alleged child sex offence records published by the NSPCC found that the majority of child sexual abuse cases were taking place in areas with significant ‘Asian’ populations.
First came the phrase “Asian” to describe the Muslim men who were abusing young British girls. Then came the phrase “grooming gangs,” as if these rapists were gangs of hairdressers. These terms are used to continue the inexcusable coverup of the large-scale rape and abuse of young girls by Muslim men, and to divert attention away from the beliefs that lead some Muslim men to believe that they have the right to sexually abuse infidel girls who are unveiled.
The UK’s former race tsar Trevor Phillips has said the British establishment must wake up and accept the fact that the men in these type of grooming rings are all Muslim.
Police were involved in these epidemic coverups, as were politicians and social workers. Recall the absurdity of Labour MP Naz Shah retweeting to the abused girls to “shut up for the good of diversity,” thus demonstrating the readiness of some politicians to sacrifice anything in the name of “diversity.” Shah is still a member of Parliament. Another Labour MP, Sarah Champion, stated rightly that “people care more about being called racist than preventing child abuse.”
When the Muslim grooming gang cases finally hit the courts, their racism was exposed. The perpetrators referred to the victims as “white trash” and “easy meat,” prompting the former director of public prosecutions, Lord McDonald, to state that the abuses were  “profoundly racist,” but this brand of racism mattered far less than “Islamophobia.”

Erdogan vows to recapture all lands once held by the Ottoman Empire — and more
Tin Pot Dictator
Jihad Watch : “We say at every opportunity we have that Syria, Iraq and other places in the geography [map] in our hearts are no different from our own homeland. We are struggling so that a foreign flag will not be waved anywhere where adhan [Islamic call to prayer in mosques] is recited.”

Apparently Erdogan means at the very least the recapture of all the lands once held by the Ottoman Empire. That’s not just Greece, as in the article title below. That’s also Bulgaria, Romania, Yugoslavia, Algeria, Syria, Iraq, Israel, Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, and more. How seriously this can be taken is anybody’s guess, but it shouldn’t be dismissed out of hand. Erdogan is already moving against the Kurds in Syria, explicitly calling the action a “jihad” and invoking the Ottoman era repeatedly.
And “We are struggling so that a foreign flag will not be waved anywhere where adhan [Islamic call to prayer in mosques] is recited” refers to far more than just the old Ottoman domains. That means everywhere there are Muslims in Europe and everywhere else. The caliphate is, in Sunni Islamic theology, the sole legitimate government for Muslims on earth, to which all Muslims owe allegiance.
Erdogan is saying more clearly than he ever has before, as far as I know, that he is going to restore the caliphate. And he is virtually promising war with the non-Muslim (at least for now) states of Europe. How far we have come. Just a few years ago, mainstream analysts would dismiss my talk of jihad and the caliphate by pointing to Turkey as an example of how Islam can coexist with democracy, and confidently predicting that soon the rest of the Islamic world would follow Turkey’s lead. Now they don’t talk about Turkey so much anymore.

Tariq Ramadan Could Face Charges in the U.S.
Hugh Fitzgerald: Tariq Ramadan Could Face Charges in the U.S.
Marina's Hero.......
Jihad Watch : For Tariq Ramadan, the news gets worse and worse.
First, there were the charges against him in France, where two Muslim women, Henda Ayari and a woman known only by an alias, “Christelle,” both accused him of extreme sexual violence and rape. He now sits in a French prison, waiting trial, his sudden claim about having multiple sclerosis having been deemed insufficient to allow him to await trial without being held in custody.
And there are two more Muslim women in Paris who have made claims against him but not yet come forward publicly, for fear of what his followers might do. It is not an idle threat. Henda Ayari, who was the first to accuse Ramadan, has received thousands of death threats from Ramadan’s most fanatical supporters, and is now under 24-hour guard — possibly for years to come.
After France, new accusations against him appeared in the Journal de Geneve, in Switzerland, where four women claimed that when they were his pupils at a high school in Geneva, and between the ages of 14 and 18, he had tried to sexually molest them, and in all but one case succeeded. No doubt the Swiss authorities are still investigating these accusations, and will wait their turn to charge him, as they surely will, once the judges in Paris have reached their decision.
And now comes the latest news: while the peripatetic lecturer was in the United States, spreading his message of “moderation” from coast to gullible coast, and being lionized as a great Muslim intellectual, delivering his Deep Thoughts on Islamic morality and ethics, he also managed to find the time to dally, in his own fashion, with at least one Muslim victim, who now has found a brave Muslim lawyer, Rabia Chaudry, to help her, and though the charges have not yet been yet made public, they surely have to do with sexual violence, possibly including rape.  More here............

The dog gone politics of Namewee - By Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy
Wednesday, February 21, 2018
Malaysiakini : “Setiap pemberontak, terutama pemberontak dalam pemikiran dan moral untuk menemukan nilai-nilai kemanusiaan dan kebenaran, adalah pemberontak perseorangan, yang berani menantang apa yang sudah ada dan yang jadi ketentuan satu kebenaran usang!” - Nasjah Djamin, Indonesian author
COMMENT | A right-wing Malay member from an NGO, which is really just a cut-out for the establishment - what can I say, you have to listen to everyone because reality, not truth, is somewhere in between - posed a banal question when he heard I was supportive of rapper provocateur, Namewee. He asked how I would feel if Namewee had a performance in front of temple which hurt the sensitivities of Indians in Malaysia.
I told him, I would feel insulted only because it was not an Indian rapper provocateur behind the performance. However, I am the wrong person to ask this question. While many Indians claim that I have written too many articles critical of the Indian community - I assumed I was engaging in some sort of communal introspection - many Malays claim that I am anti-Malay/Muslim. While some Chinese claim that I write anti-Chinese articles because - wait for it - I am critical of the DAP. Go figure.
So yeah, I do not fall into the category of Malaysians whose sensitivities are bruised whenever someone says something bad about my tribe. Heck, I think tribal politics is what makes cultural unity in diverse cultures a Sisyphean endeavour. There are better mechanisms to ensure solidarity amongst diverse polities instead of retreating to cultural tropes. What I like about Namewee is not that he sometimes offends the establishment, but rather he does not conform to some sort of politically-correct narrative of what it means to be “Malaysian”. He is a constant reminder to the establishment that there is a certain section of the Malaysian society who are pissed off with the antics of the government of the day and they express themselves without resorting to the conventional platitudes that oppositional types confine themselves to. He is also a constant reminder to the oppositional forces in this country that some people do not subscribe to the politically-correct narratives of what it means to be “Malaysian”. All of this goes back to the reality of young people who feel that they are estranged from the political process. This may have nothing to do with this rapper but is indicative of how young people are detached from the political process altogether. 

 I would just like to remind the state security apparatus and the various NGOs advocating on behalf of “Malaysians” whose sensitivities were bruised, that they have grossly misunderstood Namewee, yet again. Do not take my word for it, take (now Minister of Culture and Tourism, then Minister in the Prime Minister's Department) Mohamed Nazri Aziz said about the rapper when he ran afoul of the establishment and their proxies for his obscenity-laden diatribe against the racists remarks of a headmistress back in 2010. According to Nazri, controversial rapper Namewee is not a racist but a young man who has been “grossly misunderstood” and misrepresented by the media. “He has done nothing wrong which may be considered an offence under any laws in this country,” Nazri said. 

Wonderful mess. Read it all here..........

Anti-Semitism and mainstream Malay politics - By Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy
Monday, February 19, 2018
Malaysiakini : “The anti-Semites who called themselves patriots introduced that new species of national feeling which consists primarily in a complete whitewash of one's own people and a sweeping condemnation of all others.” ― Hannah Arendt, ‘The Origins of Totalitarianism’
COMMENT | David Roet who led the Israeli delegation to a United Nations event in Kuala Lumpur – the first in 50-something odd years – had this to say about Malaysia - “I have great hopes for good relations between our two countries in the future”, adding that he had found “many similarities between Israelis and Malaysians. A multifaceted society of people from different backgrounds working together for a better future.”
Even though Malaysia was a “tough nut to crack”, I give credit to the Najib administration for sensibly following international norms - not to mention, UN obligations - by allowing Israel to participate in this forum even though the Foreign Ministry in a cowardly manner attempted to deflect from this obligation when confronted with the predictable bigoted rhetoric from Amanah and PKR.

Meanwhile, what does the so-called “moderate” Islamic party, Amanah, think of all of this? They want to know if Malaysia is having an “affair” with Israel. The cherry on the horse manure cake is when Amanah’s Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah said, "Or is (Prime Minister) Najib (Abdul Razak) so eager to follow in the footsteps of the Saudi Arabian government which reportedly has close ties to Israel?”

Hating Valentine’s
Wednesday, February 14, 2018

Jihad Watch : Today, February 14, is Valentine’s Day, the sacred day that intimate companions mark to celebrate their love and affection for one another.

If you’re thinking about making a study of how couples celebrate this day in a positive and loving manner, the Muslim world and the milieus of the radical Left are not the places you should be spending your time. Indeed, it’s pretty hard to outdo Islamists and “progressives” when it comes to the hatred of Valentine’s Day. And this hatred is precisely the territory on which the contemporary romance between the Left and Islamic Supremacism is formed.
The train is never late: every year that Valentine’s comes around, the Muslim world erupts with ferocious rage, with its leaders doing everything in their power to suffocate the festivity that comes with the celebration of private romance. Imams around the world thunder against Valentine’s every year — and the celebration of the day itself is literally outlawed in Islamic states.
This year, for example, the Islamic Republic of Pakistan has, as always, banned Valentine’s Day for promoting “immorality, nudity and indecency.” Pakistani television and radio stations are disallowed from mentioning the event — because of a court order the Islamabad High Court issued last year. No one in society, from an official level to any public place, can even hint that they might be celebrating, let alone thinking about, the day.
Pakistan views Valentine’s Day as an “insult” to Islam. In the past, Valentine’s Day activities in the Islamic country were disrupted by Jamaat-e-Islami, Pakistan’s main religious party, but in recent years the state and courts have involved themselves. Back on Valentine’s Day in Pakistan in 2013, supporters of Jamat-e-Islami took to the streets in Peshawar to vehemently denounce the Day of Love.
Demonizing it as “un-Islamic,” the Muslim protestors shouted that the day had “spread immodesty in the world.” Shahzad Ahmed, the local leader of the student wing of Jamat-e-Islami, declared that the organization would not “allow” any Valentine’s Day functions, warning that if Pakistani law enforcement did not prevent Pakistanis from holding such functions, that the Jamat-e-Islami would stop them “in our own way.” Khalid Waqas Chamkani, a leader in Jamat-e-Islami,calls Valentine’s a “shameful day.”

Dutch schools avoid trips to cities targeted by jihad terrorism
Jihad Watch : A quarter of Dutch school trips abroad no longer include destinations that have been hit by terrorist attacks

Headlines are filled daily with news of jihad terror and creeping sharia, but unless such news strikes close to home, people assume that they will never be affected.
Already the walls are closing in on Europe and freedoms are being reduced, given the escalation in crime and sex attacks correlated to the influx of Muslim migrants. This trend will continue unless politicians begin to behave responsibly. This latest news about the curtailing of Dutch school trips is alarming. More alarming is that it is being accepted as a matter of course. It is a serious matter when routines are interrupted due to jihad terror. Such is the case now for many European countries. They are being eased into passive acceptance of jihad violence.
Leftist ideologues continue to smear people who warn about the serious threats to freedoms that Westerners take for granted. Those who choose reason and truth over propaganda and political correctness have been branded as “alt-right,” “white supremacists,” “fearmongers,” “paranoid” and the like.
Those same leftist ideologues denied the existence of no-go zones across Europe not long ago, until their existence could no longer be ignored due to the excessive violence in those areas. News spilled out in their own media, so they collectively adjusted their propaganda to present a much more benign picture of no-go zones than is factual, now conceding that they exist, but claiming that they are not nearly as bad as the “alt-right” would have you believe.
Now that the school trips of children are being planned around jihad terror, the words of London’s Muslim mayor Sadiq Khan and French leader Emmanuel Macron bear repeating: that jihad terror will be a part of everyday life, so get used to it.
There will be many more restrictions on the daily life of citizens in Western countries, as long as they continue to sleep and vote in leaders who betray them.

A Pariah State, Pakistan : US puts forward a motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watchlist
EOTW : (Islamabad) I bet the Pakistani Government is wishing it hadn’t made such public attack on the US after Washington withheld a load of Aid money (Jizya)
You know where they openly burnt pictures of President Trump on the streets, where Pakistani Bank replaced the dollar with the Chinese Yuan as its preferredcurrency of payment  and even having the gall to summon the US ambassador for a talking to.
It appears the US under President Trump is not the US under Obama which is why  he United States has put forward a motion to place Pakistan on a global terrorist-financing watchlist . Which it previously was on from 2012-2015. A senior U.S. official in the region said. “Pakistan has always been selective” in cracking down on militants who use its territory as a base.
It is time for that to stop, and so we are working with our allies, who also are affected, to see effective action against groups such as the Haqqanis and elements of the Taliban.” Pakistan’s de facto finance minister, Miftah Ismail, told Reuters that the United States and Britain put forward the motion several weeks ago, and later persuaded France and Germany to co-sponsor it. “We are now working with the U.S., UK, Germany and France for the nomination to be withdrawn,” Ismail said, speaking by telephone from Europe.
We are also quite hopeful that even if the U.S. did not withdraw the nomination that we will prevail and not be put on the watchlist.” Its not before time at all, For years the Pakistanis have played the US (If not the world) why for a coutnry which is virtually bankrupt, its just been revealed that they are developing new types of Nukes.
This a country which can't even feed its own people. Hopefully a few years of no money will force Pakistan to sever its links with Islamic terrorism.
