Thoughts on Israel's Raid Into Syria A Few Days Back

A very important post from Robert Avrech at Seraphic Secret:

Last Thursday, the Israeli Air Force penetrated deeply into Syrian territory and apparently bombed an Iranian arms shipment that was being transferred to Hizbullah.

However, there is something wrong with this picture.

Iran are constantly arming Hizbullah. It's non-stop. Why would Israel suddenly spring into action and fly over Turkey then penetrate so deeply into Syrian that the IAF were just a few miles from the Iraqi border?

The intel for this raid has been building for months. Security was top-level. The raid was perfectly planned, split-second timing was crucial; this was a daring attack, extremely dangerous and carried potentially serious international blow back.

In truth, Israel had no choice.

The North Koreans have been selling nuclear material to the Syrians. And this cannot stand.

As John, from the invaluable military blog Op For, explained to Seraphic Secret:

This is cause for concern. The hardest part about constructing a bomb is finding grade fissible material. If Iran bought direct from the North Koreans, the Syrians could put together a crude device in short order. Mating it to a delivery system, different story. But who needs missiles and jets when you have a fanatic with a back pack and access to Israeli cities?
There was a second purpose to the Israeli raid, and that was to test Syrian radar and ground defenses. If you check your world maps you'll see that the most direct route from Israel to Iran is over Syria.

Sooner or later Israel must take out the Iranian nuclear facilities.

Yes, that's right.

Reward Money

LGF, Hot Air and Gates of Vienna have already covered this but I'm not above piling on. A jihadist group in Iraq, the so-called Islamic State of Iraq (which is neither a state nor Iraqi), has offered a $100,000 reward for the murder of Swedish artist Lars Vilks over the now infamous Muhammad Dog cartoons. That's not a Rushdie-level bounty but even at European prices it's real money. Lars responded, “I suppose this makes my art project a bit more serious. It’s also good to know how much one is worth.”

Well, what am I, chopped pig liver? Hey, Islamic State of Iraq, how 'bout some props for the Wraith Man? I'm working hard over here and I get nothing. I may not be an international "artist" but at least my Mohammad Dog cartoons (here and here) are in color. I figure these are worth at least $50. Or did you morons blow you're whole reward budget on Vilks?

Ahmadinejad Is All Over The Place These Days

He's coming to the UN again.

He's declaring that Bush will one day be tried for his "catastrophes."

He is telling the world that Israel can not "continue its life." This rant is of particular note. Check it out:

Asked if Iran had launched a proxy war in Iraq -- something the U.S. ambassador and top military commander there both asserted this week -- Ahmadinejad said the United States is merely seeking a scapegoat for its failing campaign in Iraq.

"Forces have come into Iraq and destroyed the security, and many people are killed," the Iranian president told Britain's ITN during an interview in the garden of the Iranian presidential palace in Tehran.

"And there are some claims that may seem very funny and ridiculous. Those who have lots of weaponry and warfare and thousands of soldiers -- if they are defeated, they blame others. There is no way to escape for peace."

Iranians do not believe in war and consider it a "last resort," he said.

He further claimed that Tehran is a friend of Iraq -- maintaining "good relationships" with the Sunni, Shiite and Kurdish factions -- and "if Iraq is not secure, we are the first country that would be damaged."

He added, "Responsible people should understand this: that Iran is against any sort of insecurity and attacks, and Iraq is able to defend themselves." Watch Ahmadinejad discuss issues affecting his country »

During the interview, Ahmadinejad struck a friendly tone toward Britain, saying he regretted that British soldiers have died in Iraq.

"We are sorry for your soldiers to be killed. We think peace should exist. Why should there be an invasion so that people will be killed?" he asked.

"We want friendship -- friendship to all. We love all nations and all human beings. Anyone who is killed, we are against it."

Ahmadinejad urged the United States and Britain to reconsider the invasion of Iraq. The two countries should "correct themselves," he said. If they don't, "the defeat would repeat."

The Islamic republic could help improve conditions in Iraq, but first coalition forces must leave, he said.

"We can help solve many problems in Iraq. We can help secure Iraq. We can help the attackers leave Iraq if the American government and British government correct themselves." he said.

Ahmadinejad has said in the past that Tehran would fill any power vacuum left by a withdrawal of coalition forces in Iraq.

The United States has cited the Iranian president's remarks as a reason to continue its efforts in Iraq.

As for allegations that Tehran is pursuing a nuclear weapon, Ahmadinejad said he resents the notion that Iran "has to obey whatever was put to us" and asked why there is no similar furor over American and British nuclear programs.

"Our bombs are dangerous, but American bombs are not dangerous?" he asked.

I have news for the American President. Whatever he thinks about the will and power of Allah, American bombs are indeed very, very dangerous.

This man thinks like a child.
By the way, do you think this post is in bad taste? Well, I think the Iranian leader is leaving a bad taste in my mouth.

Well it's been since November of 2006, and as predicted over the Moveon ad

As hideously predicted, the Moveon ad, which btw is no overreach, but represents the heart and soul of what they consider their better morality, and are burning to tell us all they really feel, has generated no negative response from ANY of the Harry Reid-ite, I'm bending over for you, simpering, fear struck, and terrorized Democratic candidates when one is CLEARLY called for. Even Ms Hill.

Hillary Clinton has ruled herself out for me, and she had the benefit of the doubt on foreign affairs side of things from me. But shockingly, Rudy has struck home with a point.

If Hillary (or any of them) cannot stand up to Moveon, who will they stand up for when it's not just critical, but civilizationally unredeemable if you don't.

How fast will they wither for the support of the morally unravelled western european govts and their soft power, and the snickering smiles of the oil nations? How fast will they justify the credo of Hassan Abbasi of Iran, who advises the mullahs?

So I have a small thought, from another western european...

"You have sat too long here for any good you have been doing! Depart, I say, and let us have done with you. In the name of God, go!"

It took the national democrats less than a year to get me to feel this way. Despite all the stunning incompetence (beginning with the lack of holding people accountable at Tora-Bora), and misplaced loyalty to friends of the Bush admin (too big a list for here), I have more confidence in them, than in you, democrats.

The lot of you look and are craven before a bunch of arrogant, morally superior, holier than thou, cultural shouters, with some money and campaign workers. How will you fare against the arrogant, morally superior, holier than thou, cultural shouters with allegiance to the ascendant forms of Islamism, whose beliefs give them permission to kill your people unless you accede to their words and deeds?

This, 'misperformance', with Moveon has, very unfortunately, provided the answer.

The Dhimmis At The WaPo

So what else is new?

Via Jihad Watch (emphases mine):

In "5 Myths About Terrorism" in the [September 11, 2007] Washington Post (thanks to Steve), Alan B. Krueger provides a sterling example of the politically correct myopia that prevents an accurate analysis of the global jihad and Islamic supremacism. And he does so in such a clumsy way that it is remarkable that no one at the paper caught this before it was printed:

4. Terrorism is mainly perpetrated by Muslims.
Wrong. No religion has a monopoly on terrorism. Every major religious faith has had followers involved in terrorism. (Sri Lanka, for instance, has grappled for decades with the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, a separatist group that pioneered suicide bombing as a terrorist tactic and hopes to create a homeland for the country's mostly Tamil minority, who are largely Hindu.) Although radical Islamic terrorists are the worry du jour because of 9/11 and Iraq, the data show pretty clearly that the predominant religion of a country is not a good predictor of whether its people will become involved in terrorism.

After all, it was not long ago that homegrown villains such as Timothy McVeigh and the so-called Unabomber were the most notorious terrorists. That makes sense; the vast majority of terrorist incidents are local, motivated by local concerns and carried out by natives. Even international terrorist events tend to be local affairs, most frequently carried out by local militants who target foreigners who happen to be in their country. (Just think of last week's foiled plot to attack U.S. targets in Germany.) This suggests that the likelihood of attack by homegrown terrorists is far greater than the threat of another 9/11-style attack by foreigners.

Did you catch that? Terrorism isn't "mainly perpetrated by Muslims" because "no religion has a monopoly on terrorism." This doesn't even establish what Krueger wants it to establish, because the fact that people of all religions have committed terrorist acts doesn't disprove the contention that terrorism is mainly perpetrated by Muslims. If one group is responsible for something, say, 80% of the time, it is mainly responsible for it: you can't point to the existence of the other 20% as if it were proof that the 80% group is not mainly responsible.

DAILY MAIL UK - 9/11 no Pearl Harbor, it's all an exaggeration, get over it

Bush the Jihadist: How the world was plunged into an apocalyptic war


the World Trade Centre on September 11, 2001, was nothing like Pearl Harbour on December 7, 1941, when the entire American battle fleet was sunk or crippled by a mass air attack by another great power, Japan.

Deaths at Pearl Harbor: 2117

Deaths on 9/11 (whan at least 200 JUMPED to their deaths): 2996

41.7% more.

Value of the battleships sunk (OK and CA, and AZ, WV): about $250 million in today's dollars

Value of WTC, Pentagon, lost revenue, lost value in airlines...anyone doubt it was in the tens of BILLIONS? Many businesses NEVER returned to NYC or Manhattan. What was the final 'insurance' settlement? The suit over finding the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia responsible (and others) still goes on, doesn't it?

Proximate reason for Pearl Harbor - our economic measures taken over their invasion(s) of China had crippled Japan

Proximate Reason for 9/11 - Our military measures to physically redeem Kuwait left men in the Hijaz

Real Reason for Pearl Harbor - Japanese Empire could never succeed until it was able to encompass the resources of south asia

Real Reason for 9/11 - the Caliphate could never succeed while successful free peoples 'debauched the world' as satan's instruments running about making up their own rules out of their own heads instead of following god as the sovereign. Nation States no longer exist for such movements.

No matter how sensational its impact, 9/11 still remains a terrorist outrage perpetrated by a mere 19 men armed with Stanley knives.

Nor had the attack been masterminded, like Pearl Harbour, by the government of a foreign state, but simply by an Islamist fanatic and a handful of co-conspirators.

So for Bush to declare "war" on Osama Bin Laden and Al Qaeda was actually to exaggerate their importance - and glorify their actions. Worse, it was his declaration of "war" that led in 2001 to the invasion and occupation of Afghanistan and, in 2003, to the invasion and occupation of Iraq.

Translation - Americans, you are TOO wedded to the ideal that the life of your compatriots is so important, and you should be more like us and tolerate a certain level of mass murder in order to get along. That you are not like us, and have thus 'dragged the world' into this situation we now abhor you. Since you are determined to be like this, it means YOU are the problem, not those who attacked you.

We get the picture, you fruit smelling twits. Do you?

SHAME Daily Mail. SHAME.

All Racism is the same, Anti Semitism Chapter 8,234,651

Why is the existance of Israel compulsory in this world?

Man Held in Rabbi Stabbing in Germany

FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) - Police arrested a German man of Afghan parentage in the stabbing of a rabbi in Frankfurt last week, prosecutors said Friday.

The 22-year-old was arrested in Frankfurt Thursday night and admitted to stabbing the rabbi, Zalman Gurevitch, prosecutors in the city said in a statement. The man is being investigated on suspicion of attempted manslaughter and dangerous bodily harm.

According to the rabbi, the assailant said "I'll kill you, you (expletive) Jew," prosecutors say.

However, prosecutors said the suspect—whose name they did not release—denies having either any intention of killing the rabbi and any anti-Semitic motive.

The Frankfurt-born German citizen, whose parents come from Afghanistan, maintains that he greeted the rabbi with the words "salem aleikum," or "peace upon you." In their statement, they said that there was then "an exchange of words which ended in a physical confrontation."

The suspect said that he "felt physically inferior to the rabbi and so reached for his knife," they added. The weapon had a 3-inch blade.

Holocaust song has cellular firm squirming

TORONTO (Reuters) - Canada's biggest phone company has apologized after a punk-rock reference to the Holocaust appeared on billboard advertisements for its cellphones.

The ads for Bell Canada's (BCE.TO: Quote, Profile, Research) Solo discount service showed a young woman decked out in flashy punk rock attire, with a button that reads "Belsen was a gas" -- the controversial title of a song by the Sex Pistols, and a reference to Nazi Germany's Bergen-Belsen concentration camp.

"It was inadvertent," Bell Canada spokesman Mark Langton said on Friday, noting that the dozen ads were taken down as soon as the company realized its mistake. "Obviously, we would never depict such an offensive slogan in our advertising."

He said Bell officials approved the ads after examining sample images that were smaller than the final billboards. The button inscription could only be read when the ads were blown up to their full size, he said.

"In the proofing and approval materials, it was impossible to see the button, so our folks missed it."

BCE apologizes "for any offense or distress that we caused," Langton said.

The billboards appeared in mass-transit systems in Vancouver, British Columbia, as well as in Toronto, which has a large Jewish community and many Holocaust survivors.

How Islam is used to incite hatred to Jews

This is none other than the Palestinian Legislative Council Speaker Ahmad Bahr, who as the demented lefties enjoy pointing out, was democratically elected by the Palestinian people.

In the Quran it refers Jews & Christians being or being turned into apes and pigs in here, here and here, their crime, rejection of Islam.

Meanwhile the UN has a report that 'islamophobia' is on the rise. There has been no corresponding report on infidelophobia, however.

Storm Track Infiltration: Sedition Laws – Where Art Thou

Does a house have to fall on the Brits? When will they act against the Islamic insurgency in their country? There is an avowed and self-identifying enemy to their country in their midst and they refuse to apply sedition laws to the perpetrators?

The leading preacher of a hard-line Islamic sect which controls almost half of British mosques delivers a message filled with anger at non-Muslims.

His target is the kuffar, the nonMuslim, whether Jewish, Christian, Hindu or atheist, and the message is simple: their designs are evil, their ways corrupting. Stay away from them.

Mr ul Haq, 36, who is charismatic, intelligent and British, seems to share Osama bin Laden’s stated conviction that America and its allies are seeking to destroy Islam. Both men regard this as the fulfilment of a prophecy made by the Prophet Muhammad, and both find justification in the Koran for the use of militant jihad to attack and kill those nonbelievers who have incurred Allah’s displeasure.

Each preaches the glories of martyrdom, yet while bin Laden hides somewhere near the Pakistan-Afghanistan border, Mr ul Haq lives in Leicester and is fêted internationally as a leading scholar of Islam. His views would be cause enough for concern were he merely a maverick cleric with a small group of followers whose austere, rejectionist agenda was isolated from mainstream Islamic thought.

When Mr ul Haq speaks of his contempt for British ways and Western values, however, it carries the authority of the ultra-conservative Islamic movement whose views are preached in hundreds of mosques and madrassas in Britain. The Deobandis run more than 600 of the 1,300 mosques in Britain and their seminaries – known as darul uloom – produce the vast majority of British-trained Islamic clerics.

Walk into a British mosque, particularly outside London, and the chances are that it is the voice of Deoband that you will hear.

Isn’t that wonderful. Sedition being preached at the core mosque and British authorities do nothing.

Western idiocy

  1. an Islamic party pushing for Sharia law (and the full share of Islamist values about alcohol, swimming-pools, etc) has been created in Finland,
  2. Canadians start considering that full-veiled women can vote,
  3. Deobandi sect preaching jihad, women's submission to men and disapproval of Western science education controls more than 600 of Britain's mosques, and of course, is opposed to Muslims forming friendships with kuffars and contempt for all of them and.... (you guessed it) Jews. Khaled Ahmed, an expert on Pakistani extremism, stated: “The UK has been ruined by the puritanism of the Deobandis. You've allowed the takeover of the mosques. You can’t run multiculturalism like that, because that’s a way of destroying yourself. In Britain, the Deobandi message has become even more extreme than it is in Pakistan. It’s mind-boggling.”
  4. after Austrian plot, Catholic radio calls for Catholics to "know and support other people’s religion. That’s why we have not only to know about Ramadan but also to help and give Muslims our company, in this great sacrifice of breakfast that begins now".

I'm disgusted.

Shortcut to the Nuclear Armed Caliphate - Pakistan

  1. Bin Laden more popular than Musharraf in Pakistan: poll

  2. Pakistan's newest threat: Army officer turns suicide bomber

ISLAMABAD (AFP) — Al-Qaeda chief Osama bin Laden is more popular in Pakistan than President Pervez Musharraf, according to a poll released Wednesday.

Nearly three-quarters of Pakistanis also oppose unilateral US military action against Islamic insurgents in Pakistan's tribal areas, said the poll for Terror Free Tomorrow, a US-based organisation.

The survey "may help explain why Osama bin Laden remains at large in Pakistan and why both Al-Qaeda and the Taliban have regrouped there," the group said in a statement.

It said it polled 1,044 people across Pakistan between August 18 and August 29.

Military ruler Musharraf, facing the biggest political crisis of his eight years in power and increasing pressure from Washington to tackle extremism, is the biggest in from the poll.

It said his approval rating was 38 percent behind 46 percent for bin Laden, the architect of the September 11, 2001 attacks who is believed to be hiding on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.

Bin Laden's ratings jumped to 70 percent in the Islamist-ruled North West Frontier Province.


According to reliable sources in the local police, a Pashtun army officer belonging to the elite Special Services Group, whose younger sister was reportedly among the 300 girls killed during the Pakistan Army's commando raid on the Lal Masjid in Islamabad between July 10 and 13, blew himself up during dinner at the SSG's headquarters mess at Tarbela Ghazi, 100 km south of Islamabad, on the night of September 13, killing 19 other officers.

The incident coincided with United States Deputy Secretary of State John Negroponte's visit to Kabul and Islamabad for talks with leaders and officials of the two governments.

According to the same sources, the Pashtun army officer belonged to South Waziristan, but Tarbela Ghazi is not located in the tribal belt.

Any questions?

Winds of War: The Perfect Day Scenario

You would think that the tactics of the militant jihadists and those of political Islam would be at odds with other and work at cross purposes. Both seek to re-establish the Caliphate and impose Islam upon the world. Both believe in the same ideology of Islamism.

The militant jihadists use terrorism to reach their goal while the fundamentalist Muslims use political Islam. The tactics of political Islam is a slow patient process where they work to slowly Islamatize both Muslim and non-Muslim societies while militant jihad seeks to overthrow those societies through terrorism and impose Islam directly.

You would think that the violent tactics of the jihadists would undercut the process of political Islam making targeted societies more defensive and less likely to submit to Islamism. But that may not be entirely true.

This about this. The Jihadists, like al-Qaeda, are trying to start a holy war between Islam and the West. They preach that the free democracies are at war with Islam itself and seek to destroy it. But to create that dream of a global holy war, the Jihadists need the active support of the 1.2 billion Muslims through the world. But it will take more than the war in Iraq and in Afghanistan, more than successful terrorist attacks, more than fringe hate elements on the right to awaken the ummah to the manufactured threat of a holy war by the Jihadists.

The 1.2 billion worldwide Muslims need to see their religion, in no uncertain terms, under attack by the free democracies. For that, the Jihadists need to create events so monstrous that the population of a non-Muslim country (read the USA) will respond by attacking and/or persecuting any and all Muslims and their organizations and mosques in their midst or, if through a massive WMD attack, respond with a nuclear attack on a Muslim country.

This type of uncontrollable anger from non-Muslims is what the militant Jihadists are striving for - especially in the USA. They know we can not be defeated militarily unless the entire Muslim world will unite as one force using modern day weapons to die for the glory of Allah.

It’s a sick dream but one that the Jihadists have confirmed time and time again.

So what kind of monstrous attack would kindle un-bridled anger against Muslims in the USA? Sure, a WMD attack killing tens of thousands of Americans. But though they are human beings, they are still numbers dying from one enormous cause like 9/11. So what kind of hideous attack or multiple attacks would create a primeval rage in America – one that would push Americans not just over the edge – but beyond into an abysses of uncontrollable revenge?

One word. Beslin.

Khameinei fires head of IRGC as 'incidents' increase , too bad so sad

LONDON — GERTZ -- Iran has fired and replaced the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps in wake of a series of security blunders.

Iranian sources said supreme leader Ali Khamenei has fired IRGC chief Gen. Yahya Rahim Safavi in wake of Kurdish and Arab unrest in Iran. Safavi, blamed for increasing insurgency activity in Iran, was replaced by Maj. Gen. Mohammed Ali Jaafari, head of IRGC's army.

This is what happens when you let women decide what to wear for themselves

"Regarding your valuable experience and shining background at different times, and varied responsibilities in the Guards, I appoint you [Jaafari] as the commander-in-chief of this revolutionary service organization," Khamenei said on Sept. 1.

The 49-year-old Safavi, appointed an adviser to the military, was IRGC commander for the last decade. An Iranian government statement did not say why he was being replaced.

IRGC contains an army, navy and air force and has been responsible for Iran's strategic weapons. The 125,000-member force reports directly to Khamenei.

Anyone wondering where the Tomahawks, B-2's, F-22, and F-117's will be vectored?

Jaafari was said to have been a leading element in IRGC's campaign to destabilize Iraq. In early 2007, Jaafari narrowly escaped being captured by U.S. troops in the Baghdad area.

I guess we know what gets you a promotion. Perhaps Safavi was not sufficently motivated to kill americans.

Is there any question as to what to expect?

and ... Iran's elite IRGC controls much of economy..read on

Victor Davis Hanson deals with Walt and Smearsheimer and the new breed

From RealClearPolitics.com:

A New Strain of Anti-Semitism is Spreading

By Victor Davis Hanson

Who recently said: "These Jews started 19 Crusades. The 19th was World War (1). Why? Only to build Israel."

Some holdover Nazi?

Hardly. It was former Prime Minister Necmettin Erbakan of Turkey, a NATO ally. He went on to claim that the Jews -- whom he refers to as "bacteria" -- controlled China, India and Japan, and ran the United States.

Who alleged: "The Arabs who were involved in 9/11 cooperated with the Zionists, actually. It was a cooperation. They gave them the perfect excuse to denounce all Arabs."

A conspiracy nut?

Actually, it was former Democratic U.S. Sen. James Abourezk of South Dakota. He denounced Israel on a Hezbollah-owned television station, adding: "I marveled at the Hezbollah resistance to Israel. . . . It was a marvel of organization, of courage and bravery."

And finally, who claimed at a United Nations-sponsored conference that democratic Israel was "much worse" than the former apartheid South Africa, and that it "undermines the international community's reaction to global warming"? A radical environmentalist wacko?

Again, no. It was Clare Short, a member of the British parliament. She was a secretary for international development under Prime Minister Tony Blair.

A new virulent strain of the old anti-Semitism is spreading worldwide. This hate -- of a magnitude not seen in over 70 years -- is not just espoused by Iran's loony president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, or radical jihadists.

The latest anti-Semitism is also now mouthed by world leaders and sophisticated politicians and academics. Their loathing often masquerades as "anti-Zionism" or "legitimate" criticism of Israel. But the venom exclusively reserved for the Jewish state betrays their existential hatred.

Israel is always lambasted for entering homes in the West Bank to look for Hamas terrorists and using too much force. But last week the world snoozed when the Lebanese army bombarded and then crushed the Nahr al-Bared refugee camp, which harbored Islamic terrorists.

The world has long objected to Jewish settlers buying up land in the West Bank. Yet Hezbollah, flush with Iranian money, is now purchasing large tracts in southern Lebanon for military purposes and purging them of non-Shiites. Here at home, "neoconservative" has become synonymous with a supposed Jewish cabal of Washington insiders who hijacked U.S. policy to take us to war for Israel's interest. That our state department is at the mercy of a Jewish lobby is the theme of a recent high-profile book by professors at Harvard University and the University of Chicago.

Dwarf: Iran wants 'peace and friendship for all, oh and Israel cannot continue its life'

What really amazes me is that every time this complete moron opens his mouth to reinforce what every single Iranian leader has said since 1979, including those the MSM deludes themselves into thinking are moderates, the Israelis, whose govt is showing itself to be equally as stupid, fails to engage massive amounts of publicity saying ..."gee, does anyone wonder why we are certain our survival depends on stopping these freaks from getting nuclear weapons?"

Asked if Iran had launched a proxy war in Iraq -- something the U.S. ambassador and top military commander there both asserted this week -- Ahmadinejad said the United States is merely seeking a scapegoat for its failing campaign in Iraq.

What proxy war?

BAGHDAD — The U.S. military has reported Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps has established a network in Shi'ite sectors of Baghdad to help fuel the insurgency against the U.S.-led coalition in Iraq. They said IRGC's Quds Force was helping train and equip Shi'ite and Sunni insurgents for operations against U.S. and Iraqi troops.

"IRGC has established a significant presence in Baghdad's Shi'ite neighborhoods, particularly in Sadr City," an official said. "They are pouring in weapons, financing and facilitating travel of insurgents to Iran for advanced training."

During the interview, Ahmadinejad struck a friendly tone toward Britain, saying he regretted that British soldiers have died in Iraq.

"We are sorry for your soldiers to be killed. We think peace should exist. Why should there be an invasion so that people will be killed?" he asked.

"We want friendship -- friendship to all. We love all nations and all human beings. Anyone who is killed, we are against it."

Olmert, it' really not that hard to make your point when the target is a bunch of well circling, mahdi searching, apocalyptic, genocidal racists

On Wednesday, U.S. and Iraqi troops captured what officials termed a major Iranian operative in Iraq. The unidentified operative, arrested in Karbala, was identified as a Quds Force officer who helped establish a new Shi'ite militia in Baghdad and southern Iraq, Middle East Newsline reported.

"The detained individual is suspected of coordinating with high-level IRGC-QF officers for the transportation of multiple Iraqis to Iran for terrorist training at IRGC-QF training camps," a U.S. military statement said. "He is also a known logistics facilitator providing lethal aid to terrorists operating in central Baghdad."

Officials said the U.S. military has intensified efforts to capture IRGC officers in Iraq. They said IRGC has sent senior officers into Baghdad, Basra and Karbala to oversee the so-called Special Groups, which has been conducting bombings and other strikes against the U.S.-led coalition.

When the ITN interviewer asked if he could tour the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran, Ahmadinejad chuckled and asked him if he thought the United States or Britain would allow Iran to inspect their nuclear facilities.

"We do not need a bomb. We are against bombs, actually.

Saying "Good Riddance!" to Islam

Two days ago:

A group of young Muslim apostates launches a campaign today, the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks on America, to make it easier to renounce Islam.

The provocative move reflects a growing rift between traditionalists and a younger generation raised on a diet of Dutch tolerance.

The Committee for Ex-Muslims promises to campaign for freedom of religion but has already upset the Islamic and political Establishments for stirring tensions among the million-strong Muslim community in the Netherlands.

Isn't that funny. Muslims have proselytized in Western nations for decades. As a result, many airheads have converted to Islam and yet somehow that is not considered to be "stirring tensions".

Ehsan Jami, the committee’s founder, who rejected Islam after the attack on the twin towers in 2001, has become the most talked-about public figure in the Netherlands. He has been forced into hiding after a series of death threats and a recent attack.

He is braver than I.

“Sharia schools say that they will kill the ones who leave Islam. In the West people get threatened, thrown out of their family, beaten up,” Mr Jami said. “In Islam you are born Muslim. You do not even choose to be Muslim. We want that to change, so that people are free to choose who they want to be and what they want to believe in.”

He has my support.

The end of the article provides a few Islamic sources which clearly advocate death for apostasy. I wrote a long, detailed post about this very topic in late 2005. Here, I excerpt the conclusion:

The vast majority of Muslims treat murtads [ex-Muslims] as traitors. In their eyes, the life of an apostate is worthless. From the closest relatives to the entire Ummah, an apostate has little to no shelter. Murtads are surrounded by a climate of suffocation in Islamic societies. That is why so many countless apostates keep their thinking to themselves. If caught, their only recourse is to profess maniacal allegiance to Islam. Otherwise, a tight noose or a sword welcomes them.

Muslims are immensely proud of their timeless religion. The Quran is respected and revered instead of being recognized for what it is -- a glorified encyclopedia of asininity. Islamic laws such as punishments for stealing, adultery, murder, rape, and apostasy remain the same across time and space. These laws are unreformable by definition.

The only hope is for Muslims to ignore such laws. Sadly, the past fourteen centuries don't offer much in that direction. Terror, both psychological and physical, is the very soul of Islam. For what would you say to "continue to believe or die"?

Russian Muslims vs. Orthodox Church

Oopssssssssss, the seeds planted by Orthodox Patriarc Alexis weren't fruitless. After defending the Iranian-Russian relationship as a way to build a new multipolar world and stating that "it is only adherents to traditional religions, first of all the Orthodox and Muslims, who can give 'an appropriate response to the challenges of the time", now the Orthodox Church is confronting a new challenge by ... Muslims.

The Government wants to introduce a new optional subject about Orthodox culture. The no. 2 of the Orthodox Church, Kirill, has said that "In URSS there were a lot of people who was taught atheism. They were professional atheists. This people did not disappear. As there are also ultraliberals. But the overwhelming majority of the Russian people is backing this new subject".

But the religious Muslim authorities have united themselves with the laicists, to prevent the introduction of this subject in the Russian teaching system. The VP of the Russian Muftis' Council  has accused the Orthodox Chruch of "clericalising" the Russian society. One of the most known teologians of the Russian Orthodox Chruch, Father Andrei Kurayev, has proposed the expulsion of the Mufti to the Gulf Persian States, where they practise the secularism that he likes so much.

What's wrong with this picture?

SAMPSON COUNTY, N.C. – On the sixth anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, students at one high school were not allowed to wear clothes with an American Flag...world's supidest update/resolution below

Under a new school rule, students at Hobbton High School are not allowed to wear items with flags, from any country, including the United States.

The new rule stems from a controversy over students wearing shirts bearing flags of other countries. Gayle Langston said her daughter, Jessica, was told to remove her stars and stripes t-shirt.

“Today she wanted to wear her shirt, and I had to tell her no,” said Langston. “She didn't like it at all because I knew it would get her in trouble. Of all days, 9/11, she could not wear her American Flag shirt.”

The superintendent of schools in Sampson County calls the situation unfortunate, but says educators didn’t want to be forced to pick and choose which flags should be permissible.

How about ours, you horses asses?

SAMPSON COUNTY, N.C. – Officials at Hobbton High School have lifted their previous ban on flags.

After the numerous reactions recieved Superintendent Dr. L. Stewart Hobbs, Jr. tells NBC17 they have lifted the ban on all flags and “from this point on, all dress code chages will be made at the school board level.”

Now, you can wear your Al Qaeda black flag t shirt on 9-11.

Storm Track Intimidation: Muslim Student Association – None Dare Call It Hate

Jeff B. over at Protein Wisdom ran across this little piece of un-reported news missed by the MSM (Surprise. Surprise.) but picked up by LGF. Jeff wrote:

I’m interested to hear what the diversity czars and the risk-averse university bureaucrats have to say about this kind of identitarian political activism — not because I’m particularly bothered by it (the video shows the MSA for the repressive ideologues and wannabe zealous thugs they are, and frankly, I find it refreshing to see such free speech aired on a university campus for a change) — but rather because a university-sanctioned group is performing such confrontational activism on a university campus, where “hate” is purportedly disallowed.

Wow, what makes this report even better is the little video at LGF that actually documents the harassment – videoed by an MSA student himself.

And no sooner is the last post about plans to strike Iran is done...

FOX NEWS : U.S. Officials Begin Crafting Iran Bombing Plan

WASHINGTON — A recent decision by German officials to withhold support for any new sanctions against Iran has pushed a broad spectrum of officials in Washington to develop potential scenarios for a military attack on the Islamic regime, FOX News confirmed Tuesday.

Germany — a pivotal player among three European nations to rein in Iran's nuclear program over the last two-and-a-half years through a mixture of diplomacy and sanctions supported by the United States — notified its allies last week that the government of Chancellor Angela Merkel refuses to support the imposition of any further sanctions against Iran that could be imposed by the U.N. Security Council.

The announcement was made at a meeting in Berlin that brought German officials together with Iran desk officers from the five member states of the Security Council. It stunned the room, according to one of several Bush administration and foreign government sources who spoke to FOX News, and left most Bush administration principals concluding that sanctions are dead.

If sanctions won't go any further (which is really too bad), and Iran will not simply end enrichment in order to start real negotiations, the clock is at midnight.

Two more carrier task forces are on the way to the gulf RIGHT NOW

Why are the Germans itchy?

Sources say news leaks about the prospective designation (of the IRGC as terrorists) greatly worried European governments and private sector firms, which could theoretically face prosecution in American courts if such measures became law and these entities continued to do business with IRGC and its multiple financial subsidiaries.

Appeal in al-Durah case to be heard today

Melanie Phillips reports that today, the appeal of Phillipe Karsenty in the Mohammed al-Durah case is going to be heard. Here's the recording at Second Draft that shows how Charles Endelin's falsification is just that. Pay attention to this, because Enderlin cannot and should not be allowed to get away with his acts of evil this time. He should be held to account for falsifying and inciting against Israel by collaborating with evil entities.

More serious discussion about HOW to strike Iran

I hope the Hojatieh are taking this seriously

New U.S. 'global strike' plan set for possible 'sovereign options' against Iran

GERTZ: U.S. military sources said the Pentagon has vastly increased its capabilities for conducting a major military strike on Iranian nuclear facilities and other targets in Iran since 2001.

The upgraded capabilities are part a new “prompt global strike” plan and include the conversion of B-2 bombers to permit them to carry up to 80 500-pound Joint Direct Attack Munitions, or JDAMs; and the recent conversion of four Trident nuclear missile submarines into conventionally-armed cruise missile shooters, each carrying 150 submarine-launched cruise missiles. The submarines alone provide commanders with enough firepower to attack 600 aim points or targets with multiple missile salvos.

Additionally, Aegis cruisers have been upgraded and the first F-22 advanced fighter bombers have been deployed. The F-22’s electronics make possible sophisticated information operations capabilities.

The military also have fielded a new 15-ton deep penetrating bomb that is designed to attacks deeply buried targets, like Iran’s nuclear facilities, many of which have been built in hardened bunkers. The B-2 can carry two of the new bombs and B-52 also can be outfitted with the penetrator.

Bin Laden's clear reference missed by all the experts?

The graduate school of Madrassah philosophies in this world remains safely nestled in the loving arms of the in laws of the Al Saud, the Al Sheikh family, direct descendants of Ibn Wahab, at King Abdul Aziz University's School of graduate studies.

There, the executed brother of Sayd Qutb, Muhammad Qutb ran from Egypt after his execution, and found safety and a job. Professor of 'hate'.

He has had, so far, two very notable students that have come to our attention (no doubt there are others). One made two speeches from in front of a bedsheet last week, and the other was assasinated in Pakistan during the jihad against the Soviets in Afghanistan.

His name was Abdullah Azzam.

The King Abdul Aziz University's School of Islamic Studies remains today untouched, pristine, and in a scholarly way goes about day to day arrogantly teaching professors and authoritative imams the philosophical underpinnings of murder for god, oppression for god, and just as bad, the dialectic of justifiying it, for god, of course.

It was the older, palestinian, Azzam who generated the mujahid movement which eventually became the mass murderers we know today. Some say he was OBL's mentor. Some think it was OBL himself (who blamed Mossad) for killing Azzam.

In that vein, and to inspire the individual's responsibility to jihad he wrote a little book named "JOIN THE CARAVAN" (COMPLETE PDF AT LINK)

"It remains for us to do our part. So I tell every young man among the youth of Islam: It is your duty to join the caravan (of martyrs) until the sufficiency is complete and the march to aid the High and Omnipotent continues," Bin Laden said.

As usual, no one here, no talking head, no government official, no paid cable news analyst sees fit to either link it all, or to educate the american people about Rommel, Yamamoto, Von Kleist, or Houston Stewart Chamberlain.

Why? I simply cannot be the only one to note the evocation, or the motive.

2nd Bin Laden's video

The latest videotape, of the hijacker’s testament, had not yet been posted on extremist web sites. But IntelCenter, a monitoring group in suburban Washington, said it had obtained the 47-minute video and provided it to Associated Press Television News.

In the tape, bin Laden praised al-Shehri, saying he “recognized the truth” that Arab rulers were “vassals” of the West and had “abandoned the balance of (Islamic) revelation.”

It is true that this young man was little in years, but the faith in his heart was big,” he said.

So there is a huge difference between the path of the kings, presidents and hypocritical Ulama (Islamic scholars) and the path of these noble young men,” like al-Shehri, bin Laden said. “The formers’ lot is to spoil and enjoy themselves whereas the latters’ lot is to destroy themselves for Allah’s Word to be Supreme.”

It remains for us to do our part. So I tell every young man among the youth of Islam: It is your duty to join the caravan (of martyrs) until the sufficiency is complete and the march to aid the High and Omnipotent continues,” he said.

Winds of War: 9-11 Six Years Later

Maybe it’s because we haven’t had another terrorist attack on our soil since 9/11. Or maybe many Americans are buying into the liberal Left’s assertion that the threat of terrorism is a neo-con plot to stay in office. Whatever it is, though terrorists' desire to attack the United States remains strong, this fact has yet to be fully accepted by the American public.

America is still under threat of more and bigger terror attacks and that fact will not recede no matter how many time liberals want to believe that the WOT is just a bumper sticker.

Germans Are Traditionalists

Like other antisemites -- ooops: Israel-critics -- Norm Finkelstein and Ted "those Palestinians who have resorted to necessary killing have been right to try to free their people" Honderich come to mind -- Mearsheimer and Walt had no problem finding a respected major publisher, not some pokey leftist hole-in-the-wall rat shop, in Germany.

That is because stuff like that sells like hot cakes here.

The publisher Campus tell us in their blurb how it is:
Since it came into existence, Israel is supported politically and economically by the USA and -- for understandable reasons -- by Germany. But unlimited solidarity is dwindling. Now two experts are breaking a taboo by well-founded criticism and are kicking off a long-overdue debate.
As Liza puts it:
Wow! Five lies in just two sentences: There never has been an "unlimited solidarity" with Israel, the "two experts" are in spite of their academic positions nothing but demagogues, the "well-founded criticism is a de-facto new edition of the "Protocols", the alleged "taboo" is non-existent and always was and the "long-overdue debate" don't need to be kicked off becuse it'a alive and thriving for decades now. But because the credo of those who "criticise" Israel is mainstream-compliant in spite of, respectivevely because their followers consider themselves a oppressed minority, truth can take a break without any harm done to the reputation of a academic publisher.
I specifically like the cute-ism "understandable reasons" in the Campus blurb. It's really fun to see what wrenching Germans are able to muster just to NOT having to say "murder of the Jews". And of course, had that "blooper of Germany history" not happened, we could now all uninhibitedly kick up our antisemitic heels. How very irritating!

"The Destruction of Its Economy Will Cause the U.S. to... Disappear Like the Soviet Union"

Where is my fuel cell car, you morons?

FROM MEMRI:'The Battle... Is Economic Rather than Military' – An Economically Oriented Concept of Jihad Emerges in Islamist Discourse

By: E. Alshech


The concept of jihad, dating back to the earliest stages of Islam, has always been open to various interpretations. Since Islamic sources define jihad in very broad terms, Muslims have, throughout Islamic history, been able to transform and extend its meaning according to their specific perceptions and needs. This document focuses campaion a concept of jihad that has been emerging for some time in Islamist discourse, as is evident in Islamist forums and websites. In this permutation, jihad is perceived as being aimed primarily at undermining the Western economy, particularly the U.S. economy, with the ultimate goal of bringing about the total collapse of the West. [1] In practical terms, this concept of jihad does not pose an immediate and substantial danger to Western economy. However, it nonetheless merits attention, since it represents a broadening of the boundaries of jihad, and widens the circle of people who can potentially be involved in jihadist activity.

"The Destruction of Its Economy Will Cause the U.S. to... Disappear Like the Soviet Union"

Islamist websites rarely engage in comprehensive theoretical discussions about the overall goals of global jihad. However, postings on this topic that occasionally appear on Islamist forums provide crucial insight into the Islamists' understanding of their struggle against the West. For example, an article posted on www.alhesbah.org in 2003, by an individual named Abu Mus'ab, stated that the key to defeating the U.S. is to weaken its economy: "No reasonable person can deny the United States' military, economic and technological power... [However, both the U.S.'s] technological research and its military forces depend on the economy. [Consequently,] the destruction of its economy will cause the U.S. to disintegrate, collapse, and disappear, just like the Soviet Union. [2] Therefore, studying America's economy is [even more crucial] than examining its military forces..." [3]

"The Primary Goal of [Al-Qaeda's] War Against America... Is to Defeat it Economically".........

Say, Dennis How did that meeting with 'President' Assad go?

U.S. Congressman and Presidential Candidate Dennis Kucinich: The U.S. Must Pay Reparations to the People of Iraq


"It was a meeting where President Assad showed a real desire to play a role in helping to create a peaceful settlement of the conditions in Iraq, as well as a grander approach towards creating peace. So it was a very important meeting, and I felt honored to have the chance to speak with him."
We need to see that there is honest reconstruction in Iraq, no Halliburton dishonest cheating of the people of Iraq and the people of the United States – the taxpayers.
The truth is that we have to reach out to the world to get help
The fact of the matter is we are all being weakened by continuing a war that's based on a lie
It is an extraordinary gesture on the part of the Syrian government that they would provide an opportunity for people to save their lives. And so this is something that I think needs to be recognized. And it also shows that here is a man, President Assad, who should be respected and appreciated for the role that he has played.
We also must pay reparations to the people of Iraq

RAMSAY CLARK, GEORGE GALLOWAY, NOAM CHOMSKY, and a democratic candidate for president. Think the other will rebuke him for what MOVEON (Money $trings) really thinks?

Just War Theory and Practice


Just war theory or the just war tradition (JWT) has become the dominant ethical philosophy in the West for the proper conduct of warfare. A definition of just war would be the aspiration to subordinate the type of state-sponsored violence called war to a sort of moral constraint. Through a series of treaties, international conventions and executive decisions, JWT has become the policy of the United States.[1] The result of this (along with other factors) has been the United States government’s inability to create a coherent foreign policy and achieve decisive military victory over America’s enemies in the last 60 years.

VIDEO: Jihad: The Genocide of the Armenians (6 parts)

The Armenian Genocide — also known as the Armenian Holocaust, Great Calamity or the Armenian Massacre — was the forcible deportation and massacring of hundreds of thousands to over 1.5 million Armenians during the government of the Young Turks from 1915 to 1917 in the Ottoman Empire.

It is widely acknowledged to have been one of the first modern, systematic genocides, as many Western sources point to the sheer scale of the death toll as evidence for a systematic, organized plan to eliminate the Armenians. The event is also said to be the second-most studied case of genocide. To date twenty-one countries have officially recognized it as genocide. The government of the Republic of Turkey rejects the characterization of the events as genocide.

New armor-piercing grenade causing US casualties in Iraq

Although improvised explosive devices have until now been responsible for the majority of US casualties in Iraq, a new, armor-piercing hand grenade may pose an even greater threat.

CBS News reports that the Russian-made device is light enough to be thrown by a single insurgent standing alongside a road and is equipped with a parachute so that it falls vertically on its target and can take out even armored vehicles.

Al-Qaeda in Iraq has been eager to take credit for the use of these grenades, but the US Army is now confirming losses to the weapons as well.

The following video is from CBS's Evening News, broadcast on September 5.

Storm Track Infiltration: Is It Time for a Cultural Protection Act?

At the sixth anniversary of 9/11 and the awareness of the subtle and not-so-subtle attempts by individuals, organizations, groups and institutions to impose a 7th century ideology on the world, isn’t it time we codify what we are defending and what we believe is worth protecting in our culture? We have no problem identifying and protecting culturally significant structures and communities through legislation. Why not our values, mores and history, i.e., our Judeo-Christian culture.

Now, mention Judeo-Christian anything to the politically correct crowd and multiculturalists and you will be called a racist or worse. The self-haters who see our culture as the reason for all the ills in the world are quite content to throw the baby out with the bathwater and embrace any culture, no matter how deviant, other than our own.

The multiculturalists only see our Judeo-Christian culture as a religion. But it is much more than that.

Bin Laden Threatens Us: Film At 11:00

I've gotten so used to the pus-dripping pussy Osama Bin Laden threatening us that I have actually forgotten to acknowledge it this time.

So, here you go.

Guys, Bin Laden is mortally threatening us once again.

When I read the transcript, I thought this is a call to war. Bin Laden said in no uncertain words, convert or die. And I wasn't the only one in the blogosphere. The media is talking about bad dye jobs but there is a serious message here. Here is an Atlas exclusive written by Dr. Paul Williams outlining the media deceit, taqiya.



The American media missed the most important part of Osama bin Laden's
videotape message, according to Pakistani journalist Hamid Mir.[http://hamidmir.com/]

Mr. Mir, the only reporter to interview bin Laden in the wake of 9/11,
said that the text of bin Laden's address may have been redacted by government
sources since a significant portion of it was not aired by major American news

In the unaltered message, according to Mr. Mir, bin Laden says: "We
must sacrifice our lives to attack the enemy." This statement, Mr. Mir points
out, is a call for suicide attacks to take place throughout the United States -
- a call that was erased from official transcripts of the videotape.
suicide attacks, Mr. Mir believes, may involve the use of radiological devices
and/or tactical nuclear weapons.

Mr. Mir said that he had been informed by leaders of the Taliban in
Afghanistan that al Qaeda's long-planned American Hiroshima - - a nuclear attack
on seven to ten U.S. cities - - will occur in 2008 but could come sooner.

In June, ABC News reported that large teams of al Qaeda suicide bombers
had been sent to the United States, Great Britain, Canada, and Germany to launch
attacks at strategic sites. The report contained videos of hundreds of recruits
for these missions at a graduation ceremony in Pakistan. Some of the recruits
were as young as 12.

In August, four Islamic terrorists were arrested in Germany for
planning to strike German airports and US bases in commemoration of the sixth
anniversary of 9/11. It is important to note that those arrested were blonde,
German born converts, whose appearance allowed them to operate "under the radar"
of traditional profiling techniques and counter-terrorism protocols.
Mr. Mir
has long sounded the alarm of al Qaeda's plan to launch an American Hiroshima.
"As far as I know, they smuggled three suitcase nukes from Russia to
Europe," Mr. Mir maintained last year. "They smuggled many kilos of enriched
uranium inside America for their dirty bomb projects. They said in 1999 that
they must have material for more than six dirty bombs in America. They tested at
least one dirty bomb in the Kunar province of Afghanistan in 2000. They have
planned an attack bigger than 9-11, even before the attacks on the World Trade
Centre.9-11 took place. Osama bin Laden trained 42 fighters to destroy the
American economy and military might. Nineteen were used on 9-11, 23 are still
'sleeping' inside America waiting for a call from bin Laden."

Mr. Mir said al-Qaeda operatives told him that tactical nuclear weapons
were smuggled over the Mexican border before Sept. 11, 2001.

Asked why al-Qaeda hasn't used nuclear weapons it already possesses,
Mir said: "They are waiting for the proper time. They want the U.S. to be
involved in a mass killing of Muslims, so that they will have some
justification. That is what I was told by a top al-Qaeda leader in the Kunar
Mountains of Afghanistan."

Mr. Mir, whose biography of bin Laden is expected to appear before
Christmas, says that the al Qaeda chieftain is no longer in Pakistan but has
relocated to a remote mountainous area within the Khost and Paktia provinces of
eastern Afghanistan.

These and ten other Afghani provinces, Mir maintains, are now under the
rule of the Taliban.
The pipeline for jihadi supply troops, he insists, now
runs from the United Arab Emirates through Iran and into southern Afghanistan.

The Iranian-Taliban alliance is a new, unique and disturbing
development in the war on terror. When the Taliban came to power in 1996, Mullah
Omar and his army were decried by the Shiite mullahs in Iran for the massacre of
thousands of Shiite Hazaras and Panjshiri Tajiks. Iran began to send money and
arms to Ahmed Shah Massoud and his opposition army of Tajiks, Uzbeks, and
Hazaras that became known as the "United Front" or "Northern Alliance." The
Russians also came to the support Massoud's army to protect the interests of

The Northern Alliance continued to receive support from Iran and Russia
until the launching of Operation Enduring Freedom (the codename for the U.S.-led
invasion of Afghanistan) Oct. 7, 2001. Overnight, the Iranian and Russian
advisers to Massoud became replaced by CIA operatives and Green Beret A team

A major setback in the war on terror, according to Mir, is that Iran
and Russia are now allied in Afghanistan on the side of their old enemy.

The first major indication of Iran's change of heart toward the Taliban
came in the wake of the bombing of Tora Bora in December 2001, when Mullah Omar
and hundreds of his soldiers and al-Qaida agents, scaled the mountains between
the Afghanistan-Pakistan border, cut through the southern provinces of
Afghanistan and headed west to Iran, where they found safe refuge, thanks to the
intervention of Imad Mugniyah and the other leaders of Hezbollah. The newly
arrived guests included such luminaries as Saad bin Laden, Osama's eldest son;
Yaaz bin Sifat and Saif al-Adel, al-Qaida military planners; and Mohammed Islam
Haani, the mayor of Kabul under the Taliban. Within Iran, they were placed in
luxurious safehouses under the protection of SAVAMA, the Iranian intelligence

When the war on terror moved to Iraq, Iran came to serve as a base of
operations for Abu Musab al-Zarqawi and other al-Qaida field commanders to mount
attacks on the occupying armies.

This monumental event – the union between Sunni and Shiite – remained
largely ignored by Western observers.

While the war dragged on in Iraq, Mullah Omar and other Taliban leaders
returned to Pakistan, gained thousands of new recruits, secured control of much
of the tribal areas, and launched the re-conquest of Afghanistan.

The Taliban soldiers are now accompanied by advisers and regulars from
the Iranian army and, according to Mir, within Afghanistan, Mullah Omar has
received visits from his old friend and fellow jihadi, Osama bin Laden.

Because of this newly forged alliance, Mr. Mir speculates that the
American Hiroshima may occur as soon as the Bush Administration launches an
offensive against Iran to prevent the Shiite country from becoming a member of
the nuclear club.

Never Forget What Our Enemies Are Capable Of

From Society of Americans for National Existence:

Slide show at THIS LINK. Speakers recommended.

Recently Cal Thomas wrote the following essay about 9/11 (emphases mine):

Forget 9/11 at Our Peril

Throughout our young history, Americans have been admonished to "Remember the Alamo," "Remember the Maine" and "Remember Pearl Harbor." These remembrances — and others — were for the purpose of motivating the public to fight on until an enemy was vanquished. When victory was assured, the memory faded into history.

Now, as we approach the sixth anniversary of Sept. 11, there are suggestions that we should begin to forget the worst terrorist incident in America's history. Recently, a front-page story in The New York Times suggested it is becoming too much of a burden to remember the attack, that nothing new can be said about it and that, perhaps, Sept. 11 "fatigue" may be setting in.

Charlene Correia, a nursing supervisor from Acushnet, Mass., is quoted as saying, "I may sound callous, but doesn't grieving have a shelf life? We're very sorry and mournful that people died, but there are living people. Let's wind it down."

Yes, 9/11 forces us to be serious, not only about those who died and why they died at the hands of religious fanatics, but also so that we won't forget that it could very well happen again and many of today's living might end up as yesterday's dead. That is the purpose of remembering 9/11, not to engage in perpetual mourning. The war goes on and to be reminded of 9/11 serves as the ultimate protection against forgetfulness. Terrorists have not forgotten 9/11. Tape of the Twin Towers is used on jihadist Websites for the purpose of recruiting new "martyrs."

What's the matter with some people? Does remembering not only 9/11 but the stakes in this world war interfere too much with our pursuit of money, things and pleasure? Serious times require serious thought and serious action. In our frivolous times, full of trivialities and irrelevancies, to be serious is to abandon self-indulgence for survival, entertainment for the stiffened spine.

"Few Americans give much thought anymore on Dec. 7 that Pearl Harbor was attacked," says the Times writer, who goes on to mention Nov. 22, 1963 (the date of JFK's assassination), the Kent State shootings on May 4, 1970 and the Oklahoma City bombing on April 19, 1995. The difference between those tragic events and 9/11 is that Kennedy's assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald, is dead, as is Timothy McVeigh, and the Vietnam War ended long ago. While all of the 9/11 hijackers died, their ideological and religious colleagues are plotting new attacks in a war that is far from over.

"Why didn't we see 9/11 coming?" was a question frequently asked in the aftermath of that terrorist attack. And the answer should be, because we forgot the attacks preceding that one, or brushed them off as inconsequential aberrations so we could get back to watching the stock market go up and obsess about Bill Clinton's pants coming down. By not remembering those earlier attacks, the reasons behind them and the intentions of the terrorists and those who trained and incited them, we put ourselves in further jeopardy.

Sept. 11 should not be remembered for maudlin, ghoulish and certainly not for nostalgic reasons. Unlike those other mostly forgotten or no longer observed dates, this one is key to defending ourselves from a future attack and further disasters. Not to remember 9/11, is to forget what brought it about. That can lead to a lowering of our guard and a false sense of security, the conditions that existed immediately prior to that awful day six years ago.

Indiana University history professor John Bodnar is asked in the Times story what might happen on Sept. 11 100 years from now. He replies, "It's conceivable that it could be virtually forgotten."

It might be forgotten — or relegated to a "Jeopardy" answer — but only if we win the war against Islamofascism. If we don't, 9/11 will stand as a day of infamy with consequences to humanity far worse than Dec. 7, 1941.

A 20-Year Plan To Overthrow The U.S. Government

Islamists cannot wage all out war on the U.S. and expect to win. But they have a religious duty to try to wage jihad in some way and eventually conquer all countries, including the U.S. There are more devious ways to conquer than straightforward war, however. In this article, Anis Shorrosh, author of Islam Revealed, shares what he sees as the Islamists' 20-year plan to conquer the U.S. As you can see, many of these things are already being done.

1. Terminate America's freedom of speech by replacing it with statewide and nationwide hate-crime bills.

2. Wage a war of words using black leaders like Louis Farrakhan, Rev. Jesse Jackson and other visible religious personalities who promote Islam as the religion of African-Americans while insisting Christianity is for whites only. What they fail to tell African-Americans is that it was Arab Muslims who captured them and sold them as slaves. In fact, the Arabic word for black and slave is the same, ''Abed.''

3. Engage the American public in dialogues, discussions, debates in colleges, universities, public libraries, radio, TV, churches and mosques on the virtues of Islam. Proclaim how it is historically another religion like Judaism and Christianity with the same monotheistic faith.

4. Nominate Muslim sympathizers to political office to bring about favorable legislation toward Islam and support potential sympathizers by block voting.

5. Take control of as much of Hollywood, the press, TV, radio and the Internet as possible by buying the related corporations or a controlling stock.

6. Yield to the fear of the imminent shut-off of the lifeblood of America – black gold. America’s economy depends on oil and 41 percent of it comes from the Middle East.

7. Yell ''foul, out-of-context, personal interpretation, hate crime, Zionist, un- American, inaccurate interpretation of the Quran'' anytime Islam is criticized or the Quran is analyzed in the public arena.

8. Encourage Muslims to penetrate the White House, specifically with Islamists who can articulate a marvelous and peaceful picture of Islam. Acquire government positions and get membership in local school boards. Train Muslims as medical doctors to dominate the medical field, research and pharmaceutical companies. (Ever notice how numerous Muslim doctors in America are, when their countries need them more desperately than America?) Take over the computer industry. Establish Middle Eastern restaurants throughout the U.S. to connect planners of Islamization in a discreet way.

9. Accelerate Islamic demographic growth via:

  • Massive immigration (100,000 annually since 1961).
  • Use no birth control whatsoever – every baby of Muslim parents is automatically a Muslim and cannot choose another religion later.
  • Muslim men must marry American women and Islamize them (10,000 annually). Then divorce them and remarry every five years – since one can't legally marry four at one time. This is a legal solution in America.
  • Convert angry, alienated black inmates and turn them into militants (so far 2,000 released inmates have joined al-Qaida worldwide). Only a few ''sleeper cells'' have been captured in Afghanistan and on American soil.

10. Reading, writing, arithmetic and research through the American educational system, mosques and student centers (now 1,500) should be sprinkled with dislike of Jews, evangelical Christians and democracy. There are currently 300 exclusively Muslim schools in the U.S. which teach loyalty to the Quran, not the U.S. Constitution. In January of 2002, Saudi Arabia’s Embassy in Washington mailed 4,500 packets of the Quran and videos promoting Islam to America's high schools – free of charge. Saudi Arabia would not allow the U.S. to reciprocate.

11. Provide very sizable monetary Muslim grants to colleges and universities in America to establish ''Centers for Islamic studies'' with Muslim directors to promote Islam in higher-education institutions.

12. Let the entire world know through propaganda, speeches, seminars, local and national media that terrorists have hijacked Islam, when in truth, Islam hijacked the terrorists.

13. Appeal to the historically compassionate and sensitive Americans for sympathy and tolerance towards Muslims in America who are portrayed as mainly immigrants from oppressed countries.

14. Nullify America's sense of security by manipulating the intelligence community with misinformation. Periodically terrorize Americans with reports of impending attacks on bridges, tunnels, water supplies, airports, apartment buildings and malls.

15. Form riots and demonstrations in the prison system demanding Islamic Sharia as the way of life, not America's justice system.

16. Open numerous charities throughout the U.S., but use the funds to support Islamic terrorism with American dollars.

17. Raise interest in Islam on America's campuses by insisting freshman take at least one course on Islam.

18. Unify the numerous Muslim lobbies in Washington, mosques, Islamic student centers, educational organizations, magazines and papers by Internet and an annual convention to coordinate plans, propagate the faith and engender news in the media.

19. Send intimidating messages and messengers to the outspoken individuals who are critical of Islam and seek to eliminate them by hook or crook.

20. Applaud Muslims as loyal citizens of the U.S. by spotlighting their voting record as the highest percentage of all minority and ethic groups in America.

Shorrosh is a member of the Oxford Society of Scholars, has traveled in 76 countries, and is a lecturer and producer of TV documentaries. Islam Revealed is a bestseller now in its eighth printing. His forthcoming 10th book, from which the 20-point plan is abridged, is titled ''Islam: A Threat or a Challenge.''
