No Dignity In Jihad

March 17, 2015

ISIS fighters are dressing as women in attempts to escape the battlefield and the Iraqi army. The humiliation for these terrorists who regard women to be beneath them must be, one can surely hope, intense. It is the least they deserve.

Some of these terrorists tried to maintain Muslim tradition by foolishly keeping their facial hair while dressing as a woman. Apparently, shaving a beard is a step over the line for those using women and children as human shields, beheading innocent people, and viciously slaughtering non-believers.

Being dragged away by Iraqi troops while dressed in drag must be very embarrassing for ISIS terrorists who have been projecting themselves as fierce, unbeatable warriors. How mortifying it must be to find there is no dignity in jihad. There is only ignorance, arrogance, and savagery – and eventual defeat.

The Press is NOT Charlie Hebdo

January 19, 2015

A great response to the hypocritical press concerning solidarity with Charlie Hebdo came from Rex Murphy last week at the National Post. He’s not buying their after-the-fact commitment and everyone needs to hear what he has to say about it.

From Rex Murphy

…we are in the middle of another blizzard of post-facto hashtag bravery…The solidarity would have been a lot more impressive, more persuasive, some time before this week’s mass butchery…Indeed, at our universities, newspapers and broadcasters, we have seen an ever-shrinking defense of free speech…the press and the universities, have been at best complicit and at worst cowardly when it comes up to defending freedom of speech — not from threats of Islamist fanatics with guns, but in much less demanding circumstances…

Where was this “we” when a video critical of Islam was mendaciously identified as the “cause” of the terror attack on Benghazi… Where is this We of the Hashtags when whole swathes of the press, and some political leaders, refuse to call acts that are plainly terroristic by their proper name…And where was We of the Hashtags when President Obama made the inexplicable declaration at the United Nations that “the future does not belong to those who slander the Prophet”…There is no “We are Charlie Hebdo” in that statement. There is surrender instead…Our universities bleat about inquiry and free speech, but they are feeble and craven, caving in to protestors and special interests…Where was “we” when a band of fatuous progressives protested former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice giving a convocation address at Rutgers University…Where was We of the Hashtags when Ann Coulter was pre-emptively cautioned about what she could or should say by officials at the University of Ottawa? Where was “we” when Ayaan Hirsi Ali was humiliated and an honourary degree invitation revoked after campus activists at Brandeis University — faculty and students — protested…There is no “we” after the killings. There are very few worthy of that claim … and, alas, under the shout of allahu akbar, 12 of them are now quite dead.

Politically Correct Terror

January 10, 2015

Reporting on the Paris terrorist attack, CNN’s Christiane Amanpour, wallowing in self-righteous political correctness, referred to the perpetrators as “activists”. One could almost sense her disappointment that France’s strict gun laws stopped her from being able to blame the attack on guns rather than “activists”.

Amanpour is not the only one refusing to give up a politically correct posture in the face of terror. With almost all terrorists proclaiming Islam to be their motivation and quoting the Koran as they slaughter innocent people, many in the mainstream media continue to warn us not to mention Islam when talking about terror attacks. It is the first thing, if not the only thing, many worry about after every attack.

If the Muslim world doesn’t like being branded as terrorists, they need to do something about it instead of just being offended. Where are the protests against terrorists from all those peaceful Muslims? Why has there been no Million Muslim March against terrorism in Washington, DC? Why do we only hear outrage from the Muslim community when they are offended by so-called “Islamaphobia”?

It is impossible to fight terrorism when so many useless fools continue to fear offending those who want to kill us. European countries such as France allow Muslim immigrants to set up stand-alone Muslim communities with their own Sharia law rather than dare offend them with European laws. Our own president seems more concerned about offending Islam than the releasing of murderous terrorists from prison.

It is tiring to continually be told that the majority of Muslims are peace loving people and that the religion of Islam is a peaceful religion – and then be attacked by Muslims in the name of that peaceful religion. Political correctness is terrorizing the entire world and paralyzing us against “activists” engaged in killing us. These “activists” are winning a war that far too many won’t even admit we are engaged in. We need to kill political correctness because it is certainly killing us.

Obama Ignores Terrorism

October 25, 2014

After declaring Al Qaeda defeated (and taking credit for it), president Obama returned to social engineering and the forcing of his “transformation” agenda upon the country. Terrorism was a fly in his agenda’s ointment, so denying the severity and often the very existence of it, especially here at home, became his politically expedient way of handling the “distraction”. Michelle Malkin takes Obama to task for this dangerous evasiveness.

From Michelle Malkin

President Obama says he’s “shaken” by this week’s violent attacks on three soldiers in Ottawa by an Islamic jihadist. He immediately phoned Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper to offer support and “solidarity”… Too bad Obama didn’t show the same resolve after multiple attacks and plots against our troops by Muslim terrorists on our soil…Where was President Obama when Muslim Muhammad Hussain was arrested in Maryland in 2010 after scheming to blow up an Army recruitment office?…Where was President Obama when Muslim Pvt. Naser Jason Abdo was arrested in 2011 with explosives, a gun and jihadi propaganda?… Where was President Obama when a gang of Islamic thugs in Newburgh, NY was arrested plotting to “bring death to Jews” at nearby synagogues and “commit jihad”?… Where was President Obama in June 2011 when Seattle jihadists were busted after plotting to attack the Military Entrance Processing Station?… Where was President Obama when Musim convert Muhammad Yusuf was caught by New York City police in 2011 building a pipe bomb he planned to use to kill police and U.S. soldiers returning from war in Iraq and Afghanistan?… Where was President Obama after an Islamic terrorist ring in Raleigh, NC got busted in 2009 plotting to bomb military installations and die “as martyrs in furtherance of violent jihad”?…
Where was Obama? Sabotaging our borders, restricting our gun rights, working to free Gitmo jihadists, decrying Islamophobia, demonizing conservatives, welcoming jihad sympathizers to the White House and putting politics over national security.

Obama’s Dangerous Campaigning

September 30, 2012

Obama’s prime occupation for the past year has been campaigning for re-election. Refusing to ask hard questions, the biased media has been a willing partner in Obama’s attempt to hide his failures in order to get re-elected. Rather than investigate the administration’s glaring missteps and blunders, the media has focused on finding fault with Romney while echoing administration spin. This obsession with re-election has become a danger to the country.

Afghanistan, Obama’s “right” war, is failing and the American death toll is approaching 2000 at a current rate of approximately one per day. That’s slightly less than half the toll from 8 years of the Iraq war, and neither Obama nor the press mentions it. This is a far cry from the nightly reports of war deaths during the Bush administration. Afghanistan, for Obama’s sake, has become a silent, hidden war – and it is failing.

The economy, a definite smear on the Obama administration, continues to be spun as “recovering” in spite of all data and statistics, and voters are being told Obama has saved us from disaster. One need only look around to see the fallacy in this, yet, the spin continues in the hope of repetition becoming fact in voters’ minds.

Perhaps the most dangerous failure of Obama has been on the international front. Iran sneers at Obama and is on the verge of having nuclear weapons. Recent embassy attacks and deaths have been determined to have been planned terrorist actions and the administration is still immersed in blaming them on a video clip. The cover-up is part of a re-election campaign considering danger to the country as irrelevant.

We have had an absentee president for the past year and it is taking a toll. There is no national budget, immigration reform has been ignored, the Middle East is exploding, the economy is failing, class warfare is raging, the race card is alive and well, “green” policies hamper economic recovery, the deficit is increasing, and the media has lost all credibility

Obama’s solution is fund-raising, appearances on “The View” and “David Letterman”, ignoring national leaders, cover-ups, Romney bashing, and empty rhetoric. Four more months of this kind of irresponsible neglect is frightening. Four more years would be disastrous.

Obama’s Foreign Policy Farce Exposed

September 15, 2012

Reminiscent of a Baghdad Bob performance, White House press secretary Jay Carney told the press on Friday that the violence occurring around the world at US embassies is “…in response not to United States policy, and not to, obviously, the administration or the American people, but it is in response to a video”.

This, of course, has to be the White House position because Obama told us he was “uniquely qualified” to bring stability to America’s relationships in the Muslim world. Many voters were fooled into believing that his charisma, alone, was enough to calm down Muslim fanatics and that his foreign policy of “throw away the stick and speak softly” was the answer. Worse than that, Obama fooled himself into believing it.

After one term of Obama’s foreign policy, the US has not only lost respect around the world, it has lost influence, credibility, and allies. In the Middle East, fear of US reprisal is no longer a concern for violence-prone fanatics who respect nothing but strength. Obama’s willingness to throw Israel, once a strong ally, under the bus is welcomed by most Middle East Arabs, but it is also a sign of weakness. That weakness is blood in the water for terrorist sharks, as is appeasement.

Iran has certainly taken advantage of Obama’s weakness and is fast approaching a viable nuclear weapon. Having arrogantly announced his intent of wiping Israel off the map, Armajinedad openly sneers at Obama and the UN, knowing there is nothing to fear from continuing his efforts. Without the “stick” of the US, the UN is even more useless than it has been. Israel, abandoned by Obama’s foreign policy, fully understands the danger and is on the verge of a military attack which will explode the Middle East.

Obama’s foreign policy farce is now being exposed, as were his other failed policies. He has nothing but to campaign on contraceptives, taxing rich people, abortion rights, gay marriage, and issues that prey on emotions. It would be very dangerous for voters to be fooled again.

Progressive’s Ignorant Moral Equivalence

September 12, 2012

For years, progressive liberals have considered moral equivalence a basic tenant of their ideology. President Obama, nurtured by that ideology, brought moral equivalence into the White House as a guiding principle for his personal mission to “transform” America. World events, however, repeatedly show that moral equivalence is not only foolish,it is dangerous.

The events of 9/11 clearly showed the danger radical Islamists pose. However, many treated 9/11 as an opportunity for demanding sympathy for other cultures. Political correctness, coupled with liberal guilt, has produced apologists wrapped in moral equivalency idealistically trying to rationalize uncivilized behavior.

What, exactly, is equivalent in our current culture to rioting and killing over offense at a cartoon or a movie? How many embassies were stormed and how many diplomats were killed when a Saudi cleric offensively claimed on TV that Jewish people used human blood in holiday pastries? How many violent Christian riots broke out when gunmen in Pakistan went door-to-door killing Christians and burning their homes?

Muslim honor killings, where daughters or sisters are killed for shaming the family (sometimes by just being raped) do not equate with our so-called “war on women” that forces a 31-yr-old woman to pay for her own contraceptives and stops a pregnant woman from aborting because the fetus is of the wrong sex. The legal requirement for woman to wear a stifling burka at all times bears little resemblance to laws requiring exotic dancers to wear pasties.

Adherence to moral equivalence breeds the kind of stupidity displayed on MSNBC by Time magazine’s Rana Foroohar. She made a comparison of the clerics and mullahs fueling violent outrage in Egypt to Glenn Beck. Really? How many violent riots and murders has Beck caused? Which embassy was stormed at Beck’s urging?

The more uncivilized behavior is tolerated, the more it occurs. That is the inherent and inevitable danger moral equivalency creates. One can honorably strive to be non-judgmental, but there must be a limit. With our embassy being stormed and personnel being killed in Egypt, a limit certainly has been reached and it would be reasonable to stop the flow of billions of US dollars being given to that hostile nation. Is that too judgmental? How about just firing Time magazine’s Rana Foroohar for blatant stupidity?

Islamists Calling for Destruction in Egypt

July 10, 2012

Egypt under the new Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohamed Morsi, could end up looking very different than the Egypt the world knows. Morsi may be the Arab world’s first elected leader, but he is being pressured, and even expected by some, to follow the militant Islamic vision. It may be very wishful thinking to say that democracy is coming to Egypt.

In Timbuktu, militant Islamists destroyed two ancient tombs that were classified as a world heritage site by UNESCO. Other ancient mausoleums in the city viewed by the militants to be “idolatrous” have also been destroyed. This wanton destruction of religious and historic landmarks, condemned by much of the world, is being desired by some in Egypt.

There have been recent reports of prominent Muslim clerics calling for the destruction of Egypt’s Great Pyramids because they, too, are “symbols of paganism”. Sensing that the time may be ripe for further changes because of a Muslim Brotherhood president, calls are also being made to legalize Islamic sex-slave marriage and to institute “morality police”.

Egypt’s Tourism Minister, Muneer Fakhry Abdul Nour, seems to be deaf to those calls. With the country’s tourism industry already suffering badly, he says he is very optimistic, expecting an “unprecedented” increase in tourists in the second half of this year. Perhaps tourists would actually come to watch the difficult task of destroying the pyramids, but militant Islamists running wild and morality police on the prowl would tend to dampen that attraction.

Change in Egypt may come swiftly, but change for the better is an entirely different matter. The Islamic militant’s idea of progress hinges on a nostalgic look backward. That past era of repression has no place in today’s world, but that doesn’t stop the militants from trying to carve out a place for it using violent force. Unfortunately, Egypt may have become ripe for carving.

Egypt’s “Liberal” Presidential Candidate

May 22, 2012

Abdel-Moneim Abolfotoh, once a leading figure in the Muslim Brotherhood, has been labeled a “liberal Islamist” and is one of the front-runners in this week’s presidential election in Egypt. His “liberal” view that a Christian should be able to run for president of Egypt has brought controversy to the race.

Abolfotoh also holds the “truther” view that the 9/11 terrorist attacks on the United States were the result of a conspiracy because “it was too big an operation” to be carried out without inside help. This, too, puts him in a somewhat unique position and should endear him to some here who believe the same.

He has tried to soften his stance on Christian presidential candidates by stating that Egypt “cannot have a president who does not have an Islamist orientation.” This, of course, tries to appease those who hold a much harder line, but the damage may be done. Popular opinion in Egypt is certainly not on the side of Christians.

There is little hope, however, that Egypt would bring positive change for the Middle East if Abolfotoh is elected. He considers Israel an enemy, calling the peace treaty with Israel a national security threat. He has also been endorsed by a known terrorist organization and favors implementing Shariah law which polls show appeals to the majority.

Egypt will elect a new president and it may well be the “progressive” candidate, Abolfotoh. Unfortunately, any progress Egypt makes as a result may end up backwards.

Sex After Death Legalized

April 26, 2012

From Mail Online via Drudge

Egyptian husbands will soon be legally allowed to have sex with their dead wives – for up to six hours after their death. The controversial new law is part of a raft of measures being introduced by the Islamist-dominated parliament. It will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 and the ridding of women’s rights of getting education and employment.

The subject of a husband having sex with his dead wife arose in May 2011 when Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdul Bari said marriage remains valid even after death.
