After Kenya, no more turning the other cheek to those who hate us

By Allison Pearson

Where is the Muslim condemnation of the Nairobi massacre by maniacs in the name of their religion?

A child runs to safety during the fighting

A child runs to safety during the fighting

Picture the scene if you can bear to. A bustling shopping precinct where a group of men, women and children are surrounded by armed men. As one of the terrorists moves among them, he demands that the person quailing in front of him names the mother of Jesus or recites the Lord’s Prayer. “Our Father which art in Heaven,” says one woman. She is spared. Her neighbour, a Muslim boy, racks his brain for any line of the Bible, anything he has heard in school or on TV. But it’s too late. The boy is shot through the head; put to death for not being Christian. (more…)

This article is a re-posting from Laissez Faire Today, a daily e-letter club site dedicated to social/political awareness in the broadest sense. The root of this site is one concerning financial matters, but they expound on a variety of other concerns as well with informative thought brought to their reading public through a continual series of timely articles, book reviews and discount book offerings. With an incredibly vast array of perspective LF defies categorization other than that which might be considered somewhat anarchistic … but in a respectable and responsible manner.

I offer here one of their latest posts, one that describes a woeful tale of totalitarian government surveillance and civil disobedience brought together with an historical perspective on the manner of the world in which we now live. Prepare to witness how our civil liberties in general and specifically our 4th Amendment rights have been under ongoing assault and rapid diminishment through manipulation and lies since no later than the latter half of the 20th Century. See how Nineteen Eighty-Four by George Orwell may well go down in history as one of the greatest philosophical treatises on liberty in Socratic dialog the world has ever witnessed.

For your reading pleasure, I present:

Thank You, RUSSIA?

Dear Laissez Faire Today Reader,

Baltimore, MD What happens when you spend a day at home searching the Internet for home appliances and maybe some back-to-school supplies? For most people, you get a lazy afternoon. But one couple in Long Island, N.Y., got a visit from their local police department. They had some questions about their peculiar Internet searches.

Better sit down before you read this. And move away any valuables you might throw at a wall in a fit of rage. (more…)

CNN’s “God’s Warriors,” hosted by Christiane Amanpour, is a three-part series intended to examine the growing role of religious fundamentalism in today’s world. Unfortunately, the first program in the series, “God’s Jewish Warriors,” is one of the most grossly distorted programs to appear on mainstream American television in many years. It is false in its basic premise, established in the opening scene in which  Jewish (and Christian) religious fervency is equated with that of Muslims heard endorsing “martyrdom,” or suicide-killing. There is, of course, no counterpart among Jews and Christians to the violent jihadist Muslim campaigns underway across the globe, either in numbers of perpetrators engaged or in the magnitude of death and destruction wrought. }} more…

American Muslim convert and New York City native Yousef al-Khattab outdoes himself and compares the Korean hostages to “terrorists” and suggests that because they are guilty of the “crime” of trying to convert Muslim children that they are worthy of Daniel Pearl’s death — beheading. }} more…

Saudi in the Classroom
A fundamental front in the war

By Stanley Kurtz

Unless we counteract the influence of Saudi money on the education of the young, we’re going to find it very difficult to win the war on terror. I only wish I was referring to Saudi-funded madrassas in Pakistan. Unfortunately, I’m talking about K-12 education in the United States. Believe it or not, the Saudis have figured out how to make an end-run around America’s K-12 curriculum safeguards, thereby gaining control over much of what children in the United States learn about the Middle East. While we’ve had only limited success paring back education for Islamist fundamentalism abroad, the Saudis have taken a surprising degree of control over America’s Middle-East studies curriculum at home. }} more…

“In December 1984, on Mohammed’s birthday, Khomeini told his people:

“‘War is a blessing for the world and for all nations. It is God who incites men to fight and to kill. The Koran says, “Fight until all corruption and all rebellion have ceased.” The wars the Prophet led against the infidels were a blessing for all humanity. Imagine that we soon will win the war. That will not be enough, for corruption and resistance to Islam will still exist. The Koran says, “War, war until victory!…” The mullahs with corrupt hearts who say that all this is contrary to the teachings of the Koran are unworthy of Islam. Thanks to God, our young people are now, to the limits of their means, putting God’s commandments into action. They know that to kill the unbelievers is one of man’s greatest missions.’

“Amid all the killing, Iran also declared war on sexuality. Women were commanded to shroud themselves so completely that no lock of hair showed. Morality patrols in white jeeps cruised streets, arresting women for being ‘badly veiled’ and sending them to prison camps for three-month rehabilitation courses. Western magazines entering Iran went first to censors who laboriously blacked out every woman’s picture except for her eyes.”

Holy Land Foundation…Dispelling the Myths

by Dennis Lormel

The U.S. based charity Holy Land Foundation (HLF) went on trial this week, along with seven individuals who were principals of HLF. They were indicted in 2004 for providing material support to terrorists, namely to HAMAS. The trial began with the jury selection phase. Thus far, the trial has generated moderate media coverage. As it progresses, the trial will garner more intense coverage. This is an extremely complex and document intensive case. The trial should last a minimum of five months. To date, the media coverage has spawned a series of myths that warrant being dispelled.

The bottom line is that HLF did in fact fund HAMAS. }} more…

In the Trenches: Is it really all about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict?

by David Harris

I’m just back from another trip to Europe for meetings on Middle East issues. If I had a dollar (even better, given the exchange rate, a euro) for every time I heard in one capital or another that Israel must solve the conflict with the Palestinians so as to defuse the worldwide rage of jihadists, I’d be a wealthy person today.

Do such otherwise intelligent people really believe what they say, or by now is this simply a reflexive rhetorical device, parroting the conventional wisdom that has firmly taken hold?

It goes without saying that a permanent solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would be most welcome.

But for the jihadists, that won’t change much. After all, they’re not interested in peace between Israelis and Palestinians. Their denial of Israel’s right to exist, and their hatred of those in the international community who support the Jewish state, whatever its final borders, would not magically disappear. (more…)

Young women from the Jamia Hafsa Madrassa were among those clashing with Pakistani police in the recent gun battles at the Lal Masjid in Islamabad.

Jamia Hafsa is headed by the same Muslim Chicken clerics, Maulana Abdul Aziz and Maulana Abdul Rashid Ghazi (now dead), who run the Lal Masjid.

Check out: Who Are the Women Transvestites in the Islamabad Standoff? A Look Inside the Jamia Hafsa Madarsa.

I’d bet good money that half of those burkas contain muslim male transvestites. We already know at least one Taliban sissy was caught trying to escape dressed in a burka, so Beware of women with hairy knuckles and Adam’s apples!
