There is no God, especially not Allah, and Mohammed, may piss be upon him, was no prophet, but the mass murdering, child raping, leader of a fanatic death cult.
Ten years ago today, we saw the fruit of his savage evil. Nothing mundane about it.
There are two kinds of “Muslims”.
There are those who, ignorant of the meaning of their alleged faith, simply go through the motions of their rituals and mouth the platitudes they have been taught. These are the overwhelming majority of any religion, and I have no quarrel with them, although no respect, either.
And there are those who understand and truly believe. Over the last ten years, they have taught us well.
They wage jihad against us. They torture, enslave, and kill all who stand against them. They do not abide any other religion nor any other way of life.
They abhor liberty.
They are our enemies. They must be destroyed, or they will destroy us.
I won’t be spending any time watching CNN, or Fox, or even the History channel today.
I am far more concerned with the war raging right this minute, and they are traitors, openly spreading enemy propaganda.
Right now, jihadis are killing our soldiers (although not as quickly as our soldiers are killing them). Right now, they are beating, enslaving, maiming, and killing their own girls and women. Right now, they are fighting to destroy the nation of Israel, and all who live there. Right now, they are taking control of formerly “secular” states, like Egypt and Turkey, and our traitor press and traitor leaders celebrate this as Spring in the Middle East.
Right now, President Hussein is planning the defeat of the nation who elected him. He is corroding our military, our economy, our morals, our liberty, our spirit.
I have no thought for ten years ago. Right now, the Towers are still falling, and far too many us are cheering.
Meanwhile, back at Eric Holder’s Department of Justice, the guys we’re supposed to trust to be able to protect us from the non-sectarian, completely random terrorists, acting purely in revenge of the evil performed by the capitalist United States, have this fine achievement to their names.
This was the guy whom Obama and Holder lined up as their test case to prove that, yes indeed, we can convict Gitmo jihadis using good old-fashioned civilian court procedures. All was well until last month, when the district court judge barred the feds’ blockbuster witness from testifying, even though he was prepared to tell the jury that he sold Ghailani the explosives used to destroy the U.S. embassy in Tanzania in 1998. The feds had only learned of the witness’s identity during enhanced interrogation of Ghailani, and since the interrogation was deemed illegal, evidence derived from it was inadmissible. Without that testimony, the case collapsed. And now, a month later, we have a full-blown fiasco on our hands.
He was the first Gitmo detainee they sent to civilian court. And thanks to today’s verdict, now he’ll probably be the last.
The DoJ is said to be “pleased” with this result.
Did you vote for the incompetent traitor that brought this about?
Understand: Obama’s TSA prosecutes a war against the American people that his DoJ cannot prosecute against our real enemies, and that he, as Commander in Chief, refuses to prosecute via our military.
Tolerating the Testicle Squeezing Agency acting against us, as we go about our legitimate business, while DoJ and DoD will not and cannot bring the fight to our enemies, guarantees that we will lose our security and our liberty.
Historian John O’Neil, in his book Holy Warriors: Islam and the Demise of Classical Civilization, makes the case that three hundred years were inserted into the calender so that Otto III would be recorded as the monarch during Christ’s millenial return in 1001, despite Otto having reigned in the 700s. This would explain the extreme dearth of historical and archaeological evidence of the missing three hundred years.
Such a radical alteration of the calendar could easily have been accomplished – according to O’Neill – as so few then could read, so few were learned, and multiple calendars were then in use.
O’Neill also adds two more particularly valuable insights to our growing knowledge of Islam and the devastating impact that it has had upon the non-Muslim world. Islam and jihad brought about the fall of classical civilization in Europe through its incessant attacks on European states, most particularly through its closure of the Mediterranean. Islamic jihad on the Mediterranean denied papyrus to the nations of Europe. The denial of this fundamental component of European commerce, communication, and record-keeping resulted in catastrophic changes, according to O’Neill.
Christian Europe prior to the “Dark Ages” suffered continual assaults by Islamic armies and the depredations of Viking raids. Two main results occurred; one, European slaves were taken by the Vikings and sold to the Muslims and two, centralized powers of Europe were unable to protect their lands and people.
Local powers arose to oppose attacks against the borders. These new powers became the feudal lords of Europe – completely decentralized powers that arose to defend their lands and oppose jihad and Islamic conquest. European feudalism came about as a direct defensive response to the endless jihad of Islam against Christendom, according to the author.
O’Neill does not miss the current cultural themes across Europe driven by “the mentality of political correctness, where the victim is transformed into the aggressor and the aggressor portrayed as the victim (p182).” Regarding current European views of Islam O’Neill notes, not without irony, that “astonishingly enough, this is a religion and an ideology which is still extolled by academics and artists as enlightened and tolerant.” (p210)
Fascinating story. The review itself is well worth your time, but I think I’m going to have to get the book as well.
Not at all incidentally, O’Neil acknowledges his debt to the scholarship of Henri Pirenne’s 1937 classic, Mohammed and Charlemagne, currently in print as a Dover edition.
Read the comments at the review; many seem well informed.
The chronology idea is utterly absurd. In the AD 1540, it was possible to use Ptolemy’s tables from AD 200 to predict the motions of the planets. Copernicus did this, for instance, and got okay results. If anyone had falsified the calendar even by a single year, this would have been impossible. (And this is just one of a great many astronomical proofs — e.g., what about the fact that we can identify the dates of historical eclipses from antiquity?)
Nevertheless, it seems that this does not refute O’Neil’s or Pirenne’s more important thesis of Islam’s take-down of Western European culture, although it is not uncontroversial.
OK, I need to go investigate why my parents’ A/C isn’t working.
Quickly, then, this excerpt from the SciAm article on Curry, linked below:
Some disinterested commentators agree. One is S. Alexander Haslam, an expert in organizational psychology at the University of Exeter in England. The climate community, he says, is engaging in classic black sheep syndrome: members of a group may be annoyed by public criticism from outsiders, but they reserve their greatest anger for insiders who side with outsiders. By treating Curry as a pariah, Haslam says, scientists are only enhancing her reputation as some kind of renegade who speaks truth to power. Even if she is substantially wrong, it is not in the interests of climate scientists to treat Curry as merely an annoyance or a distraction. “I think her criticisms are damaging,” Haslam says. “But in a way, that’s a consequence of failing to acknowledge that all science has these political dynamics.”
Join us! If you are also horrified by the recent outrageous fear mongering of the right wing against American Muslims then here is a way to push back. I am not a Muslim but I plan to wear the hijab on 9/11 as a gesture to American Muslims that they are full citizens of this country and deserve the same rights as the rest of us. Concerned men might wear skull caps in solidarity with us women.
No, ma’am, I am not “horrified by the recent outrageous fear mongering of the right wing against American Muslims”, I am horrified — and disgusted and profoundly angered — by Islamic hatred and violence, and by well-meaning idiots like you who do everything in your power to encourage it.
I’d rather wear one of these:
Samuel Adams spoke to this in his own time:
Contemplate the mangled bodies of your countrymen, and then say “what should be the reward of such sacrifices?” Bid us and our posterity bow the knee, supplicate the friendship and plough, and sow, and reap, to glut the avarice of the men who have let loose on us the dogs of war to riot in our blood and hunt us from the face of the earth? If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!
But this woman and her fellows blind themselves to the mangled bodies of our country men, and see only the offended privilege of our enemies.
Sam’s wish that such as these “go from us in peace” is to no avail. They will not go; they demand that only their voices be heard, that all should wear their chains, that all should lick the hands that beat them. They call for the peace of submission, not victory.
Please, please, let us revive the crime of treason, and recognize dhimmis as traitors.
If only the fantasy were true: If only there actually were a dominant, pro-American, moderate Islam, an ideology so dedicated to human rights, so sternly set against savagery, that acts of terrorism were, by definition, “un-Islamic activity.” Imagine an Islam that, far from a liability, proved an asset (indeed, an indispensable asset) in combating the threat against us. Imagine that we could accurately call the threat mere “extremism” — no “Islamic” (or even “Islamist”) modifier being necessary because the “extremists” truly were a tiny, aberrant band, fraudulently “hijacking” a great religion.
Read the whole thing, but here’s the conclusion:
One thing never intrudes on our make-believe world: the real 9/11. Before it was Ground Zero, the World Trade Center was a real place, where flesh-and-blood Americans were slaughtered — some of them leaping over 70 stories to their grisly demise because it seemed more merciful than immolation in the fires that raged within. We try not to think about that much anymore, except for a fleeting moment or two every September 11. We just imagine it can never happen again. After all, we’ve got Islam in our corner.
So, here we go. Our p-Resident supports a very shady Muslim deal to build a victory mosque on a site damaged by the 9/11 attack by devout Muslims, but tells a Florida preacher he cannot burn his own personal copy of the Koran.
There’s a “candle-light vigil”, a march on the eve of 9/11, of Islamists, leftists, and other anti-American, anti-liberty kooks, and that’s OK, perfectly acceptable exercise of First Amendment rights to free speech and free religion. But anti-jihadist, pro-America, pro-liberty Pamela Hall cannot exercise her right to be part of a Free Press by taking pictures of the event; the police “”didn’t want problems.”
The fact is, it is the left that menaces. Pamela has been harassed and physically accosted (once in Times Square with a NY Post photographer who was also attacked by these hyenas), and the police let it happen. She has footage of more than one instance. That is the real reason for removing her. They can’t or won’t protect her right to take pictures. You can bet no lefty photog would ever be told to stop taking pictures at our rallies.
The left and the supremacists are always given special treatment. They are handled like mental patients. We, on the other hand, are held to a much higher code standard. The authorities know we will listen, no push back. We behave. The mental patients are capable of anything………… still, it’s wrong. Equal rights under the law.
Our enemies can have all the freedom they want, but we must not exercise our own, least we offend them. We ourselves must not even allow ourselves the luxury of offense. That would be unpeaceful.
This, on the anniversary of the most horrific foreign attack on American soil.
Here are the sort of folks who think that burning your own personal copy of the Koran in protest is a bad idea:
These are the Kosovo Albanians we tried to save by waging war against those nasty Serbians.
Here some more peace lovers — burning actual human beings. How moderate can you get?
[Warning: this is hideous, ugly, evil murder, not a movie, not a studio reenactment. Not for children, not for the faint of heart.]
I don’t give a diseased rat’s bleeding ass for peaceful, moderate, Muslims who condemn acts of misunderstanding. They will have my sympathy, support, and tolerance when they rise up in righteous horror and anger and purge their religion of this evil. Read the words of your Prophet, may piss be upon him:
Qur’an (47-4) – “When you encounter the unbelievers on the battlefield, strike off their heads until you have crushed them completely; then bind the prisoners tightly.”
Qur’an (4:89) – “They but wish that ye should reject Faith, as they do, and thus be on the same footing (as they): But take not friends from their ranks until they flee in the way of Allah (From what is forbidden). But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever ye find them; and (in any case) take no friends or helpers from their ranks.”
Qur’an (5:33) – “The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His messenger and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned; this shall be as a disgrace for them in this world, and in the hereafter they shall have a grievous chastisement”
Qur’an (9:5) – “So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them.”
Qur’an (9:29) – “Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.”
Bukhari (52:177) – Allah’s Apostle said, “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say, “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”
Bukhari (8:387) – Allah’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.”
Tabari 7:97 The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, “Kill any Jew who falls under your power.”
Ibn Ishaq: 327 – “Allah said, ‘A prophet must slaughter before collecting captives. A slaughtered enemy is driven from the land. Muhammad, you craved the desires of this world, its goods and the ransom captives would bring. But Allah desires killing them to manifest the religion.’”
Ibn Ishaq: 992 – “Fight everyone in the way of Allah and kill those who disbelieve in Allah.”
Read his words, damn you, read his words and explain to us why you are the Real Muslims, and the murderous fanatics pictured above are the apostates, the fallen, the misinterpreters.
Read his words of peace, then rise up and cast out of your mosques the false Muslims, the haters, the rapists, the murderers, the enemies of reason, of liberty, of America. Condemnation is not enough. You must purge your faith before insulting me with your outrage over my intolerance.
Until you do, you are all my enemies. I mock your offended sensibilities, your condemnation, your outrage, and your faith:
There is no god, especially not Allah, who if he did exist would be a cackling demon; Mohammad was no prophet, but a child raping mass murderer; and Islam is no religion of peace, but a hateful cult of unending war and slavery.
Joe Hicks over at Pajamas Media highlights an interview with Hirsi Ali, who “fled a traditional Muslim life in Somalia, a life that included being the victim of female genital mutilation as a child, and eventually made her way to the Netherlands where she rejected Islam and literally underwent an intellectual awakening. She now lives in America.” Ali is under a death threat fatwa for her work with slain filmmaker Theo Van Gogh on Submission, which exposes Islam’s vile misogyny.
It’s also important to know that Hirsi Ali lives under the constant watch of security guards, since her life continues to be threatened by Islamic extremists.
This was the woman who walked onto Tavis Smiley’s PBS show to promote her new book. Nomad calls on key institutions of the West — universities, feminists, and Christian churches — to wage a war of ideas against Islamic fundamentalism and terrorism.
However, Smiley was in no mood to hear Hirsi Ali’s arguments that placed Islam in a bad light. He wanted to assert the old leftist claim that Islam is always and everywhere “a religion of peace.”
Look at this jaw-dropping exchange between Smiley and Hirsi Ali:
Smiley: But Christians do that every single day in this country. …
Ali: Do they blow people up every single day?
Smiley: Yes, Christians. Every day, people walk into post offices, they walk into schools, that’s what Columbine — I mean I could do this all day long. There’s so many more examples of Christians — and I happen to be a Christian — that’s back to this notion of you idealizing Christianity to my read. There’s so many more examples, Ayaan, of Christians who do that than you could ever give me examples of Muslims who have done that inside this country where you live and work.
Beyond the irritating liberal arrogance is the complete ignorance of the facts involved here.
Let’s ignore momentarily the dozens of terror plots — all designed and organized by Muslim-Americans — that have been uncovered and thwarted by this nation’s security forces. I will instead direct Smiley’s attention to these attacks against Americans:
1993: The World Trade Center bombing in New York killed 6 people.
1996: The Khobar Towers bombing killed 20 and wounded 372.
1998: The bombing of U.S. embassies in Kenya and Tanzania left 224 dead and 4,000 injured.
2001: On 9/11, 19 hijackers flew planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, and a field in Pennsylvania. Nearly 3,000 perished.
2009: U.S. Army Major Nidal Malik Hasan shot and killed 13 at Texas’ Fort Hood.
2010: Faisal Shahzad attempted to detonate a car bomb in Times Square.
Uh, where’s a similar listing of Christian-inspired acts of violence, Mr. Smiley? The sweeping ignorance, or political blindness, of Smiley’s claim that “Christians do that (commit acts of terror) every single day in this country” is nothing short of astounding.
Unlike Islam, Christian scripture does not guarantee paradise to those who kill in the name of their faith. But the Koran does offer the fruits of paradise to “those who kill for Allah.” Suicide bombers have been lured to their deaths with this promise and the offer that they will be free from the fires of hell if they kill an infidel and, in the process, die.
That last, right there, is the key that makes Islam so toxic. Even turn-the-other-cheek, meek-inheriting-the-earth Christianity can be perverted to excuse violence in its name, but Mohammed actively encouraged it, and led Muslim armies against the infidels in his own time.
Nevertheless, let me for a moment be the devil’s advocate.
First, if you want the list of Christian terrorist acts here in America, look up abortion clinic bombings and murders. However, note that these acts are committed not to force the Christian faith on others, but because the anti-abortionists believe that a wholesale murder of innocents is taking place. I happen not to agree with that, although it’s a close call, but if I did, I hope that I too would be doing everything in my power to stop it. Not to terrorize, mind, but to directly disrupt a human slaughterhouse. I hope I’d do the same against guard barracks in Nazi concentration camps or Soviet gulags or, um, Save The Earth re-education camps, should they ever come to pass.
Outside of America, look at Northern Ireland. However, while that conflict has a religious cast to it, the underlying conflict is one for political independence. It’s ugly as hell, and the actions involved are totally unjustified, but it’s not a war of religious expansion.
I’ll also note that both clinic bombings and the Irish fight have died down considerably in recent years. The practitioners have either fallen to attrition, or realized they were not getting the kind of sympathy they hoped for.
Second, although I don’t have a list to hand, I think there have been many nut jobs who do commit horrible crimes in the name of Christianity. Thing is, they are nut jobs, acting in direct contravention of the scriptures they cite, and they do not remotely have the support of mainstream Christian clerics.
Finally, undoubtedly many Christians do commit ordinary crimes, but not in the name of Christ — the Roman Catholic Mafioso is a classic stereotype. However, the attraction of this stereotype in fiction is precisely the huge disconnect between the professed faith and the daily life.
“Uh, how about the Spanish Inquisition? Galileo, dude!” The Inquisition was indeed brutal, but it was only carried out against other Christians, not as a weapon of evangelism against other faiths. And even the Catholic Church eventually realized that the Inquisition was not only against scripture, but counterproductive in practice, actually turning people away from the faith. It forced Western Civilization to grow the hell up.
The Islamic Jihad is the only longstanding and still very much active, program of violence against non-coreligionists, is strongly rooted in scripture, and is endorsed, advocated, and managed by the highest ranks of the Muslim clergy. It spreads an oppressive creed of utter intolerance towards the highest ideals of classical liberal, and even neo-liberal, political ideology. (Except statism. Neo-liberals love them their statism.)
And it is vastly more promiscuously lethal than the anti-abortionists, or even the Irish Republican Army, ever dreamed of being.
Smiley here is covering for evil on the largest scale. He is not hiding Nazis in his attic, he’s openly shilling for them.
He calls himself a Christian, but in fact is calling for the eradication of the faith he claims to serve.
The Jewish homeland is, in fact, Israel, and has been “since time immemorial”:
There are archaeological remains that attest to this fact. The holy books of the Jews and the Arabs also confirm this. So Jews don’t have to go back home ~ they are already home. The Jews in Europe, Asia, and America are in the Diaspora because they were summarily expelled from countries throughout the ages. The term “wandering Jew” comes from the historical facts that Jews were expelled from England in 1290; from France in 1393; from Berne, Switzerland in 1427; and from Spain in 1492, to name only a few places.
In her book From Time Immemorial: The Origins of the Arab-Jewish Conflict Over Palestine, author Joan Peters, proves with historical data and other archival information that Jews did not displace Arabs in Palestine-just the reverse: Arabs displaced Jews. In fact, the blurb of this 1984 book relates that:
A hidden but major Arab migration and immigration took place into areas settled by Jews in pre-Israel Palestine; that a substantial number of the Arab refugees called Palestinians in reality had foreign roots; that for every Arab refugee who left Israel in 1948; there was a Jewish refugee who fled or was expelled from his Arab birthplace at the same time. . . .
Recently, filmmaker Pierre Rehov created the film entitled “The Silent Exodus” about these Jews who were kicked out of their Middle Eastern homes. Between 1946 and 1974, there were a million of forgotten Jewish fugitives expelled from the Arab world. These Jews had been living in Arab lands for thousands of years but their homes were stolen from them; they literally had nothing but the clothes on their backs when they fled. They were received in Israel. They did not remain refugees; they had no special United Nations agency to assist them. Israel welcomed them and they rebuilt their lives.
Jewish communities in Europe and the Middle East share many genes inherited from the ancestral Jewish population that lived in the Middle East some 3,000 years ago, even though each community also carries genes from other sources — usually the country in which it lives.
But note this comment by Bernstein:
I don’t think that Zionism, etc., depends on whether Jews really have common genetic origins or not, anymore than Palestinian identity is any more or less real depending on whether, as some claim, a large percentage of “Palestinian Arabs” had immigrated rather recently from other countries in the Middle East. But I do think that manipulating history for ideological purposes is bad…
Every major war we have fought since Vietnam has been a proxy war for Muslims. Whether we were bombing Saddam on behalf of the royals of Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, or bombing our former allies in Yugoslavia on behalf of Muslim Albanians, or dying in order to provide electrical generators to downtown Baghdad and ferry schoolteachers into Kabul. We have not fought a single significant war since Vietnam that was not on behalf of, or intended to benefit Muslims. Not a single one. The Ottoman Empire had a name for this. It was Janissary.
It is only common sense to say that people who act like slaves, are slaves.
via the Flea, who observes:
The analogy is far from perfect. If the West provides Jannissary slave warriors for the sheiks then we should expect to take over their figurative-Ottoman Empire presently. Hardly the worst case scenario.
