Tell the UN: Expel Ahmadinejad's Iran

Cross posted at Reject the UN

From UN Watch

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad systematically denies one genocide while actively seeking another: repeatedly denying the Holocaust, repeatedly threatening to eliminate Israel, and madly pursuing nuclear weapons. All this stands in contempt of the basic principles of the United Nations and warrants Iran's expulsion from the world body. Write to the President of the General Assembly urging him to take action against Ahmadinehad's Iran.

Dear Sir;

It’s time to tell Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad that his promotion of hatred and destruction—his repeated denial of the Holocaust, his explicit incitement to eliminate Israel, his mad pursuit of nuclear weapons in defiance of the international community—carries a price. A government that systematically denies one genocide while actively seeking another stands in contempt of the principles of the United Nations.

The UN was founded on basic rules. One of them is that a member state that “persistently violates” the principles of the UN Charter can be expelled. By threatening to destroy a fellow member state, Ahmadinejad’s Iran violates Article 2 of the Charter—and mocks everything the UN claims to stand for.

The General Assembly should rescind the membership of Iran.

This will be sent to the UN and not to the US Congress or President, so every person on Earth can sign it. Let us try for 10 million letters.

Solar Eclipse and Other Space Weather

On Friday, August 1st, the Moon will pass directly in front of the Sun producing a total solar eclipse. The narrow path of totality stretches from arctic Canada through Greenland, Siberia, and Mongolia, and comes to an end in China, where millions of people will witness the event. Even more people will see the partial eclipse, visible from almost all of Europe, the Middle East, India, Asia and a corner of North America. The action begins at approximately 09:20 UT (5:20 am EDT) when the Moon's shadow first hits Earth in northern Canada and begins its rapid sweep toward China.

The crescent sun rising above the waves marks the beginning of a solar eclipse. The narrow path of totality stretches from arctic Canada through Greenland, Siberia, and Mongolia, and comes to an end in China, where millions of people will witness the sun's ghostly corona. Even more people will see the partial eclipse, visible from almost all of Europe, the Middle East, India, Asia and a corner of North America.

On July 31st, the SOHO spacecraft detected a comet plunging toward the sun and it appears headed for closest approach during Friday's total eclipse. Experienced astronomers in the path of totality may be able to photograph the doomed comet shining like a 5th or 6th magnitude star about 2o from the edge of the eclipsed sun. The Minor Planet Center has just released an ephemeris for the comet, newly named C/2008 O1 (SOHO).


Jewish Internet Defense Force

The internet and websites are great for research and meeting new friends. Sites like Facebook keep millions connected with each other. But Facebook has a problem. It is anti-Semitic and allows anti-Semitic sites. Facebook will delete any site on it that is anti-Black, Hispanic, Muslim, etc... You get the point. How I can prove this? Take this wonderful site in point.

Israel is not a country! Delist it from Facebook as a country.

An actual site on Facebook. But now there is a group doing something about this.

The Jewish Internet Defense Force, a group that claims to have 5,000 members worldwide, says it is steadily removing members from a viciously anti-Israel and anti-Semitic group on Facebook, having taken control of the group on Sunday.

"Facebook wouldn't do anything about [the group], so we did what had to be done," the group posted on its Web site. "We're not sure how long this can or will last, so we're moving fast to do what needs to be done."

The Jewish Internet Defense Force (JIDF) describes itself as a group of Jewish activists who fight anti-Semitism and terrorism trends throughout the Internet

It says it formed as a grassroots effort in 2000, mainly to mount mass e-mail campaigns, in response to the second intifada. It then began operating on various Web sites, including Facebook, to spread news about Israel and Jewish issues.

"As we used Facebook, we noticed many of the issues began literally to stare us in the face, as many various anti-Semitic and pro-Jihadist groups were springing up everywhere," said David, the spokesperson for the JIDF, who asked that his last name not be published. He said he had received four death threats since beginning his activities.

In the JIDF's latest efforts, the group has been working around the clock to dismantle the group on Facebook titled, "Israel is not a country! Delist it from Facebook as a country." That group had tens of thousands of members.

"This was one of the most vile, most anti-Semitic, most pro-Jihad and most disgusting, and most importantly, most active hate groups on the Internet," the JIDF posted on the anti-Israel page on Facebook. "It actively promoted hatred, violence, murder and genocide. Despite tens of thousands of complaints, Facebook wouldn't remove it."

"Facebook's negligence and abdication of responsibility gave us no option but to take matters in our own hands," the JIDF added.

The JIDF would not specify what technological methods it used to gain access to the group, but said it succeeded in doing so after the old administrators left.

"Ultimately, it was a result of our enemies' stupidity and our timing, persistence and determination more than anything else," David said.

The JIDF received a response from Facebook, he said, which called the anti-Israel group "legitimate political discourse." Facebook was not available for comment.

At the height of the two-year-old anti-Israel group's popularity, the "Israel is not a country" page had 48,000 members. Currently, there are 24,039 members, with the numbers decreasing by the minute due to the JIDF's actions. It has also changed the group's administrator titles to read "Mossad Zionist."

There are dozens of anti-Israeli and anti-Semitic groups on Facebook, the popular social-networking site that has surpassed all other similar sites on-line in popularity, according to tech surveys.

According to Andre Oboler, a post-doctoral fellow in Bar-Ilan University's political science department and a Legacy Heritage Fellow at the NGO Monitor watchdog group, Facebook has known about the anti-Israel group for more than a year, and made no effort to remove it.

"[The JIDF] gained control of the group without compromising Facebook's security," Oboler said. "What they have done... is taken away the hate that was spreading through [the group's] membership. It's a shame that Facebook themselves did not remove it. It has taken a lot of effort from [the JIDF], while it would have taken Facebook one click."
And if this doesn't work how about a little legal action. A multi-million dollar lawsuit might clean up Facebook's act. Facebook is afraid of being called anti-Muslim. Now they have to live with being called anti-Semitic. I wonder which one they would prefer?

UPDATE: Since this report Facebook has restored the original anti-Semitic site owner (
Madeline Nassar of Columbia, SC) to the Admin position. I am hoping that the JIDF will attempt this again or I can figure out how to complain to them about this site. Maybe I'll talk to a lawyer about the anti-Semitism published there and how to sue Facebook's ass off. G-d knows, I can use the money.

Flight 93: Stop the crescent mosque!

Rally this Saturday: Stop the crescent mosque!

Blogburst logo, petition

Tom Burnett Sr. and Alec Rawls will be in Somerset PA this weekend to condemn the crescent/broken-circle memorial to Flight 93. Here is Alec's notice about the press conference that he and Mr. Burnett will host after they speak at the public meeting of the Memorial Project Saturday morning:
...Also on the press conference panel will be Diane Gramley, President of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, and the Reverend Ron McRae of Johnstown.

In addition to our own statements, Mr. Burnett will read a statement from Congressman John Kline (R-MN), and Alec Rawls will present statements from Rich Davis, founder of the Chester County Victory Movement, and from K. M., President of Muslims Against Sharia Law.

After answering questions for the press, Mr. Burnett and his co-panelists will host a rally to stop the re-hijacking of Flight 93. Members of our informal Western Pennsylvania Compatriots group (who spoke out at the last public meeting) will be in attendance, and some out of town folks will be coming as well.
And check this out: a big color ad in the local paper:
To inform and invite the local populace, a half-page full-color ad will be running in tomorrow’s edition of the Somerset Daily American. It explains how the original Crescent of Embrace design remains completely intact in the Circle of Embrace redesign, which is explicitly described by the Park Service itself as a “broken” circle. That is exactly how architect Paul Murdoch described his original Crescent design.

All the redesign does is include an extra arc of trees that explicitly represents a broken off part of the circle. The unbroken part of the circle (the crescent), remains exactly as it was. It is still a giant Islamic shaped crescent, still pointing to Mecca , as your colleague Kirk Swauger verified a year ago:
Rawls maintains that the midpoint between the tips of the crescent points almost precisely toward “qibla,” the direction to Mecca, which Muslims are supposed to face for prayer.

His claims seem to be backed up by coordinates for the direction of qibla from Somerset that can be found on When superimposed over the crescent in the memorial design, the midpoint points over the Arctic Circle, through Europe toward Mecca.
Except for Kirk’s verification of the Mecca orientation of the crescent (which was not picked up by any other news organization), reporters have not been bothering to check the facts. When our claim that there are to be 44 inscribed translucent blocks emplaced along the flight path was reported a few months ago, Gordon Felt, President of Families of Flight 93 was quoted denying it, but despite this clear conflict of factual claims, no reporter bothered to simply open up the design drawings and count.
Can reporters actually be shamed into doing their jobs? Doubtful. They seem to regard actually checking the facts as giving some kind of unfair advantage to the side that is right (which they would be happy do do if the right side was THEIR side).

When the press is in this anti-fact-checking mode, their methodology is just to quote each side. We are trying to take advantage of this behavior by having some of our independent supporters use source documents to fact-check our basic claims, then attest in press releases and at the public meeting that they have personally counted the translucent memorial blocks etcetera.

Co-panelist Diane Gramley will be making such declarations for the cameras. Cao (the organizer of these blogbursts) did some checking from source documents this week and has already posted a powerful press release about her findings that Alec will present at the press conference.

Tom Burnett's attendance should bring national news coverage. If Tom and Alec can direct some of that coverage to our independent fact checking, it might break the media embargo on fact checking, and once we get the Mecca orientation of the giant crescent out as verified national news, the crescent goose will be cooked.

If you want to participate in our fact-checking drive, Alec has a set of fact checking guides, with links to source documents, at Just send him a link to the post or comment in which you attest to your fact-checking results, and he will compile them.

This Day in Jewish History

Tammuz 28

n 1922, the League of Nations confirmed the British Mandate of Palestine, territory taken from the Ottoman Empire following World War I. The Mandate charged Britain with securing the establishment of the Jewish national home, and safeguarding the civil and religious rights of all the inhabitants of Palestine. Just a few months later, Britain decided to lop off 77% of the land and use it to establish the Hashemite Kingdom of Transjordan(today called Jordan). In ensuing years, Jewish immigration to Palestine created much Arab resentment, and the British responded by placing strict limitations on Jewish immigration. This policy had lethal consequences for Jews fleeing Hitler's ovens. When the British continued to placate the Arabs, for example by restricting Jewish land purchases, a revolt was organized by Zionist groups. By 1948 this pressure had forced the British out of Palestine, clearing the way for an independent State of Israel.

MEMRI: In Wake of Tahdiah Agreement/SDEROT: Who Is Fooling Whom?

Two articles from 2 separate organizations each commenting on the same idea. The Truce between Hamas and Israel.

Escalation in the Hamas-Fatah Conflict, and in Fatah's Position vis-a-vis Israel

Introduction Under the tahdiah agreement between Israel and the Palestinians, which went into effect on June 19, 2008, the Palestinians agreed to stop the rocket attacks on Israel in exchange for a cessation of Israel's military activity in Gaza. It was also agreed that there would be negotiations for opening the Rafah crossing, with the participation of Palestinian Authority, Hamas and E.U. representatives.(1)

The agreement was the result of prolonged negotiations, during which both sides withdrew some of their original demands. Hamas waived its demands to include the West Bank in the agreement and to open the Rafah crossing immediately. Israel, on its part, withdrew its demand to stop arms smuggling as a condition for signing the agreement, and did not insist on a clause linking the tahdiah to the release of the Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit.

Hamas was very interested in the tahdiah, mainly out of concern that the continued siege on Gaza would weaken its status among the Palestinians, and out of fear that Israel would target its leaders. Nevertheless, the movement has presented the agreement as an Israeli capitulation and as a Hamas victory, emphasizing the lifting of the siege on Gaza and Israel's apparent recognition of Hamas.

Though some of the Palestinian factions expressed reservations about the agreement, they all agreed to the tahdiah. Despite this, some of them have violated the agreement by firing rockets at Israel, on the pretext that Israel's military actions in the West Bank constituted a breach of the tahdiah. Hamas' response to the violations was ambiguous; while one Hamas spokesmen expressed sympathy for the groups that had fired, and stressed that Hamas would not impose the tahdiah by force, other Hamas spokesmen emphasized the need for coordinated action by all the Palestinian factions, stating that those who launch rockets must be arrested. As a matter of fact, Hamas has indeed arrested some activists from Fatah's Al-Aqsa Brigades who fired or were planning to fire rockets. Israel's response to the rocket fire has been to intermittently close the border crossings, which in turn has led Hamas to suspend negotiations on the release of Gilad Shalit.

The tahdiah has brought about an escalation in the conflict between Hamas and the PA. The PA and Fatah criticized the tahdiah agreement, accusing Hamas of selling out the Palestinian cause – and especially the West Bank – in order to protect its leaders from assassination and in return for "fuel and food that are sold on the black market for a personal profit." PA and Fatah spokesmen also claimed that Hamas has relinquished its hard-line position, and is now pursuing the very same policy that the PA had pursued in the past – a policy that harshly condemned by Hamas at the time. The tension between the PA and Hamas has also resulted in armed clashes between the two sides in Gaza and the West Bank.

Meanwhile, the tahdiah is being only partially honored, with each side – Hamas and Israel – trying to pressure the other. Hamas, which sees the agreement as a victory, is calling to escalate the resistance in the West Bank. It has explicitly condoned the recent acts of terrorism in Jerusalem and the West Bank, and has taken responsibility for some of them in a bid to refute claims that it has sacrificed the West Bank and has abandoned the path of resistance. Hamas's military arm, the 'Izz Al-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, even threatened recently to abduct more Israeli soldiers.

Senior Fatah leaders have also escalated their statements – perhaps in attempt to prove that they are no less committed than Hamas to the national cause, and perhaps because Israel's agreement with Hamas has convinced them that force can lead to achievements. In their statements, they stressed that Fatah had not relinquished the strategy of armed resistance, congratulated Samir Al-Quntar on his release from the Israeli prison, and glorified Dalal Al-Mughrabi, who led the 1978 coast road bus hijacking. This, in addition to the violation of the tahdiah by Fatah's Al-Aqsa Brigades, whose members recently fired rockets at Israel.


Who is Fooling Whom?

The other day in Sderot, I made an astonishing observation. I was walking from the office after a long day at work to catch some sleep when I noticed I was not walking alone. Usually the city is deadly quiet once the sun sets, as parents refuse to let children play outside in the dark. Families prefer to remain at home together after a long day of siren alerts and rocket explosions.

High school kids don't ride around as much with the music blasting and teenagers don't walk around listening to their Ipods in case the 'tzeva adom', red color alert sounds. There's not much to do at night except maybe watch a movie and hope that Hamas rocket launchers decide to go to sleep, so that those us living in Sderot can relax just a little bit.

In any case tonight I actually noticed people outside on the street. For the first time since I've come to work in Sderot in over a year, I am seeing moms walking around with their strollers and neighbors playing cards outside on the porch.

A playground is full of kids shouting and playing -- that is one sight that makes me do a double take. Playgrounds are pretty much empty here in Sderot.

Then I realized that this is the new playground that everyone is talking about -- the first playground in the world that is properly protected from rocket fire. How? There are heavy concrete tubes that kids can run to when the siren sounds for protection. Moms are finally feeling that it is safe enough to let their kids play at a playground. The kids look like they are having fun, what an ingenious idea.

I spoke to Orna Cohen, a local Sderot mom, who's pretty happy with the playground. "I can finally let my grandkids outside to play in this new playground, when they come to visit me in Sderot," says Orna. "Usually I have to keep them pent up inside the house. It's nice to have a playground like this where the kids can play somewhat at peace, but it's obviously not a solution to living with the rocket fire."

"I just want the rockets to stop for good so that we don't have to live for these little moments of quiet that are followed by terrible barrages of Kassams," says Orna.

In any case, the children of Sderot definitely deserve some kind of break. About 70-94% of Sderot children now show signs of PTSD - post traumatic stress disorder.


From Monkey in the Middle:

It is a sorry state of the world that a playground for children has to be made bomb and rocket-proof. And it is a sorry state of the world that the UN nor any other nation of the world has not condemned Hamas for its daily barrage of rockets. The world sees and silently applauds the actions of Hamas. It is the old, ugly head of anti-Semitism rearing up again in the world.

Hamas is using this "Truce" to consolidate its power in Gaza and the West Bank and rearm themselves. Already they have boasted that they've booby trapped many areas of Gaza, in preparation of an Israeli invasion.

Israel knows that this is happening and is preparing. Israel was condemned for putting Gaza under siege. It was the strangest siege in the history of warfare with the besiegers sending 60 tons of supplies and food into the besieged area. Next time there will be no supplies sent, no food sent, no electricity sent, and maybe even cutting off the water. Then Israel will just have to sit back and wait. The world will scream and cry: "The poor civilians!" But next time it will come to no good. For they are at the end of their patience and will endure no more!

Like always, I ask you to donate to the Sderot Media Center. They provide not only information on Sderot and the attacks, but counseling and other services to the areas residents.

Again the message doesn't sink in.

They teach their children hatred. They teach their children bigotry. They teach their children the Koran. But they forget to teach their children the proper techniques for the storing and handling of explosives.

A huge blast late Wednesday rocked a training base run by Hamas in southern Gaza, and at least five people were hurt, witnesses and a health official said.

Ambulances raced to the scene of the blast late Tuesday, on the site of an evacuated Jewish settlement next to the southern Gaza city of Khan Younis. The explosion could be heard all over the city.

It was not immediately known what caused the blast. Hamas had no comment, and the IDF said it had no knowledge of the incident.

Dr. Moaiya Hassanain of the Palestinian Health Ministry said two of the five wounded were in critical condition. He said all five were Hamas men.

Witnesses said the blast destroyed the base, and a fire was burning there an hour afterward. They said a second, smaller blast was heard about 15 minutes after the first one. Hamas gunmen kept reporters away from the scene.

Keeping reporters away only means one thing. They were preparing for an attack on Israel. And again they failed miserably. All do to the Muslim commandment of ignorance.
Allah loves illiterate people and hates educated people and he had promised the first entry to Paradise to the illiterate Muslims and the last entry to the educated Muslims. - Sunaan Ibn Majah V:4290
This makes the 5th time in the last 3 months that members of Hamas have blown themselves up storing, handling or working with explosives. If this keeps up, Israel won't have to invade them, they will blow up the whole of Gaza by themselves.

Today it's me, tomorrow it's you!

This is not an article. I'm not looking for votes on Real Clear Politics. I'm not looking to impress anyone with my knowledge or my considered opinions. This will not be heavily edited or clearly thought out. I'm too damned angry for that.

This is a cry of outrage, a shout of FIRE in the crowded theater. This is a four letter obscenity aimed directly at those of you amongst us who are allowing this travesty of justice to take place, who are actually promoting it.

Whatever research has been done by me in order to write this was done long before I decided to do it. If I don't write this piece, and write it right now, then I'm not worth the effort it takes to read my stuff.

Today, posted by Deb Hamilton of Right Truth in Real Clear Politics is an article about the British blogger Lionheart. Lionheart is facing arrest if he returns to Britain. He is facing arrest for doing something and for doing it well. He has written about the invasion of his native land by Muslims. And he has called a spade a spade. And today WE DO NOT CALL A SPADE A SPADE. It is ABSOLUTELY FORBIDDEN TO CALL A SPADE A SPADE. Or to call the ISLAMIC MENACE an ISLAMIC MENACE.

God help us!

The Multicultural Thought Police ARE REAL, folks. THEY ARE HERE NOW. This is no longer some clever literary device, this is reality. HE IS FACING ARREST. For writing TRUTHFULLY about Islam.

Today it is Britain, but tomorrow it is us --"

Lionheart has committed the unpardonable cultural offense of writing the truth about Islam. He has actually gone so far as to criticize Islam. THIS is his crime. He has committed a Hate Crime. And for this dreadful Hate Crime he is actually facing the horrifying prospects of prison. For trying to protect his own country!

My God! How have we let it come to this? When the hell are we going to stop this before it's just too late to stop it? How in hell can you write about a hateful and murderous cult without calling it hateful and murderous? How in hell can you demonize the devil? Just to describe it is to commit the crime.

Full Story

From Monkey in the Middle:

Lionheart's plight can happen to anyone. Any one who see a wrong and cries out about it. His only crime was publishing the truth about Islam and the Muslim gangs that were terrorizing his native Luton.

Here in the US we are protected by the 1st Amendment which reads:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
In Great Britain it seems that the average citizen doesn't have this protection. For speaking out and preaching his faith, Lionheart is facing imprisonment. That will make him a martyr not only to the principles of Free Speech but for his Christian Faith as well.

Lionheart has many allies here in America and even in his homeland. But his greatest ally is G-d. For as Lionheart walks into the proverbial Lion's Den of the British police station, he will not be alone. For the L-rd will be there next to him, as the L-rd was with Daniel as he was thrown into the Lion's Den by the Persians.

May G-d keep Lionheart safe from harm and prosecution. Amen!

The Three-Legged Stool of Hamas

Mohammad commanded his followers to be illiterate and impoverished. It is written in the very books that Muslims read and follow to the letter.
Allah loves illiterate people and hates educated people and he had promised the first entry to Paradise to the illiterate Muslims and the last entry to the educated Muslims. - Sunaan Ibn Majah V:4290
And Hamas is taking this idea to the nth degree. For in Gaza illiteracy and poverty are hand in hand. Although the average man and woman is literate, this rate is falling. And poverty is at an all time high. Hamas blames the poverty on Israel, for not allowing the people of Gaza to work in Israel.
The number of households in the Gaza Strip below the poverty line has reached an unprecedented high of nearly 52 percent, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) said in a report published recently.

"The number of households in Gaza below the consumption poverty line continued to grow, reaching 51.8% in 2007, despite significant amounts of emergency and humanitarian assistance," UNRWA said in a statement late last week. Meanwhile, poverty rates in the West Bank fell to just over 19%.

The report, based on figures provided by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS), said that "the real average unemployment rate in the occupied Palestinian territory (as a whole) remained amongst the highest in the world at 29.5%," with Gaza reaching "an unprecedented high of 45.3%" during the second half of last year.

The report added that Palestinian youth was most affected by the fledgling economy, with members of the 15-24 age group "least likely to gain employment and the most prone to increased unemployment."

"If you deprive young people of an economic future, you deprive them of hope and when hope vanishes, what is left? How better to prevent despair and economic misery taking hold of a whole generation than to re-open Gaza's borders?" said UNRWA Spokesman, Christopher Gunness.

The report concluded that "Israeli imposed movement restrictions in the occupied Palestinian territory, whose population is estimated to have grown by about one third since 1999, have resulted in considerable regression over the past eight years and remain the main barrier to economic recovery and development."

If the people of Gaza are impoverished they should look to their leaders who have led a campaign of aggression against their neighbor Israel. Israel would open their borders, but time and time again the people of Gaza have used such occasions to attack Israelis. Thus the poverty in Gaza. For instead of building a nation, Hamas has spent the millions of dollars donated by the EU and US for weapons and rockets. Millions of dollars have been siphoned off to Swiss bank accounts for the use of Hamas leaders in their luxurious lifestyles. Why is it that the leaders of Hamas send their children to schools in Great Britain and Europe instead of giving them a good Muslim education in the Madrassas? Why is it that the leaders of Hamas live in palatial homes while their followers live in squalor? It is because like other Muslim leaders and petty dictators of Africa and South America, the leaders of Hamas only care about themselves and not their people. They only care about their own creature comforts and not about building a nation. Weapons of war do not make a nation, infrastructure and jobs do. Homes, hospitals and schools do. The willingness to work at national development does. Firing rockets into your neighbor doesn't.

But to Hamas, poverty and ignorance is just one weapon. Censorship is another. For they hate all criticism of their organization. While they cannot control what Israeli newspapers and other outlets of the media says about them, they can control what is written about them in Gaza.
Hamas' security forces on Monday banned the distribution of three Fatah-affiliated newspapers in the Gaza Strip as Palestinian journalists accused both parties of waging a campaign of intimidation against the local media.

Two Palestinian journalists have been arrested by Hamas in the past few days: Sawah Abu Seif, a freelance cameraman; and Omar al-Farra, director of the Palestinian Authority's official Wafa news agency in the southern Gaza Strip.

In addition, several Palestinian journalists in the Gaza Strip told The Jerusalem Post they had received death threats from Hamas operatives over the past few days. The journalists said they had been warned against publishing material in support of Fatah.

"Many reporters are afraid to write or speak about the recent Hamas-Fatah standoff in the Gaza Strip," complained one journalist. "Our work under Hamas has become extremely dangerous."

Control the press and only let your propaganda be heard. Joseph Goebbels knew this well as does every dictatorship in the world. Thus the only voice that will be heard in Gaza will be that of Hamas. But this is exceptable in Islam. To criticize any of the Koran or Mohammad is a capital offense in Muslim nations. As it is becoming in Gaza.

Finally, the third leg of which Hamas is now getting ready to sit upon. Torture. In Civilized nations, the police are refrained by law and custom from utilizing torture. But in the Muslim world torture is permitted.

Remember Thy Lord inspired the angels (with the message): "I am with you: give firmness to the believers, I will instill terror into the hearts of the unbelievers, Smite ye above their necks and smite all their finger tips of them." - Koran 8:12

The only reward of those who make war upon Allah and His messenger and strive after corruption in the land will be that they will be killed or crucified, or have their hands and feet and alternate sides cut off, or will be expelled out of the land. Such will be their degradation in the world, and in the Hereafter theirs will be an awful doom; Save those who repent before ye overpower them. For know that Allah is Forgiving, merciful. - Koran 5:33-34
Thus Mohammad tells his followers to torture and hold for ransom their opponents. And Hamas does this on a daily basis.
Two human rights groups on Monday decried widespread mistreatment and torture in Palestinian jails - an issue taking on fresh urgency with a flare-up of Hamas-Fatah violence over the weekend in the Gaza Strip.

The groups' reports looked at human rights violations during the past year, since Hamas wrested control of Gaza from the forces of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

More than 1,000 people were detained by each side, Al Haq estimated, even before a roundup of some 200 Fatah supporters in Gaza over the weekend, following a bombing that killed five Hamas members.

An estimated 20 to 30 percent of the detainees suffered torture, including severe beatings and being tied up in painful positions, said Al Haq director Shawan Jabarin, citing sworn statements from 150 detainees.

"The use of torture is dramatically up," added Fred Abrahams, a senior researcher for Human Rights Watch, a US-based group that is releasing its own report on abuse later this week.

Human Rights Watch said Abbas's forces need to come under closer scrutiny because of the massive international support they enjoy.

Hamas now is sitting on a three-legged stool. Each leg is made of rotten wood. They are the legs of poverty, censorship and torture. Three ideals that are embedded into the very heart of Islam and promoted by Imans the world over.

Thus making Hamas the very epitome of Islam!

UPDATE: From GI in Afghanistan

On Wednesday I published a post called From a GI in Afghanistan: We Get More "Thanks From the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders" than From Senator Obama. In it the write stated:
So really he was just here to make a showing for the Americans back home that he is their candidate for President. I think that if you are going to make an effort to come all the way over here you would thank those that are providing the freedom that they are providing for you.

I swear we got more thanks from the NBA Basketball Players or the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders than from one of the Senators, who wants to be the President of the United States . I just don't understand how anyone would want him to be our Commander-and-Chief. It was almost that he was scared to be around those that provide the freedom for him and our great country.

If this is blunt and to the point I am sorry but I wanted you all to know what kind of caliber of person he really is. What you see in the news is all fake.

This was his opinion and he recently said that the message’s author that “some of the information that was put out in my e-mail was wrong.
The e-mail, signed by Capt. Jeffrey S. Porter at Bagram Airbase, characterized Obama’s July 19 visit with soldiers there as contrary to the positive portrayals of the mainstream press.

Army Times sent an e-mail to Porter, a Utah Army National Guard member assigned to the 142nd Military Intelligence Battalion, asking if he could verify that he wrote the controversial e-mail and requesting an interview.

Porter’s reply declined the interview request, but said:

“I am writing this to ask that you delete my e-mail and not forward it, after checking my sources some of the information that was put out in my e-mail was wrong. This e-mail was meant only for my family. Please respect my wishes and delete the e-mail and if there are any blogs you have my e-mail portrayed on I would ask if you would take it down too.”

When contacted, Tiffany Porter who identified herself as his wife, said: “There were discrepancies in the e-mail, but I am not at liberty to say more.”

The Army refuted the accuracy of the account of the Obama visit.

“These comments are inappropriate and factually incorrect,” Bagram spokesman Lt. Col. Rumi Nielson-Green told the New York Daily News.

Obama didn’t play basketball at Bagram or visit the Clamshell, she said.

“We were a bit delayed ... as he took time to shake hands, speak to troops and pose for photographs,” Nielson-Green said.

Opinion aside, Obama campaign officials cited factual errors in the e-mail. Porter said Obama had gone to play basketball; Obama aides said that during the trip he only played basketball in Kuwait, not during stops in Iraq or Afghanistan.

An Obama campaign Web site, called “Fight the Smears,” labels it a “lie” that Obama refused to meet with the troops. It includes links to news stories and videos showing Obama interacting with crowds of service members as evidence.

Was Captain Porter wrong? Let us see. On Friday I publish another letter from another soldier who wishes to remain anonymous. In this letter he wrote:

Since he obviously knew in advance that's what they'd tell him, and since he didn't care to talk to the troops (we're told by the Left that the troops are horrified, shocked, forced to commit atrocities with tears in their eyes, distraught, burned out, fed up with losing, etc) and find out how they feel, and was barely in country long enough to need a shower and a change of clothes, we can only call this for what it is.

A disgraceful PR stunt, using the troops as a platform for his ego and campaign.

In comparison, I've seen four star generals and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff on this base. They each held an all ranks call, met with and briefed the personnel, and took questions on every subject from tour length to uniform design to rules of engagement to weapon choice to long term policy, from the newest airmen to the senior NCO with TEN 120-180 day tours since Sep 11. It's very clear they want to know what the troops think, and to keep them informed of events. It's equally clear mister Obama does not.

From here we must move to my op part of the oped.

Obama clearly doesn't care about the troops, doesn't care about America, doesn't care about anything except hearing his own voice and the chance to sit at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue…From where he'll bring us the proven Democratic wartime leadership of Bosnia and the Balkans (US forces still there), Somalia (US forces prevailed despite being ill equipped by executive order, and taking heavy casualties), Haiti (what were we doing there again?), Desert One (oops?), Vietnam (where we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory), Korea (still there), WWI, and the fluke success of WWII won by such wonderful liberal notions as concentration camps for Japanese Americans, nukes, FBI investigations of waitresses who dated soldiers in case they were "morally corrupt" and the (valid) occupation of and continued presence in Italy, Japan and Germany for 60 years, which they are conveniently pretending won't happen with Iraq.

That's not "change." That's "failure we can do without."

Two separate letters by two different men. And I have more with the same to it by other servicemen and women who beg me note to publish for it would destroy their careers. I will not remove the first letter, for I feel it is the truth, but I publish this retraction with this message:

Senator Obama can complain until he gets an honorable man to retract his words, but he cannot run from the truth. The truth is that he used members of the US Armed Forces for a blatant publicity stunt. That when the truth is known, unless he can have the whole press corp with him, he will shun any American troops, as he did in Germany with the American Wounded Troops.

And that makes Senator Obama a man who cares more about his image than his nation. And as my second write said:

That's not "change." That's "failure we can do without."

Sometimes People Go Too Far

There is a tradition in Judaism to place a prayer in the Western Wall. It is said that this prayer will go directly to G-d. These prayers are personal, between the person and G-d. And unless the person actually tells or shows it to another, they should never be revealed to anyone.

The Israeli newspaper Ma'ariv broke this unwritten rule. A student at the wall took down Barack Obama's prayer and gave (sold) it to the paper. No matter what your political beliefs are, this was wrong.
Ma'ariv published a photograph of the note on its front page on Friday. It said the note was removed from the wall by a student at a Jewish seminary immediately after Obama left. In the note, placed at Judaism's holiest site, Obama asks God to guide him and guard his family.

The paper's decision to make the note public immediately drew fire from religious authorities. The rabbi in charge of the Western Wall, Shmuel Rabinovitz, said publishing the note intruded on Obama's intimate relationship with God.

"It's inappropriate that the prayers of a person at the Western Wall should become a subject of public knowledge at all," said Jonathan Rosenblum, a Jerusalem-based analyst of the religious community and director of the Orthodox Am Ehad think-tank, and Jerusalem Post columnist. "There is a rabbinic prohibition against reading other people's private communications and certainly anyone who goes to the wall expects that those communication will be protected."

Another Israeli paper, Yediot Aharonot, published an article Friday saying it had also obtained the note but decided not to publish it, to respect Obama's privacy. Nearly all other Israeli media outlets ignored the story.

"The notes placed between the stones of the Western Wall
Wall are between a person and his maker. It is forbidden to read them or make any use of them," he told Army Radio. The publication "damages the Western Wall and damages the personal, deep part of every one of us that we keep to ourselves," he said.

The wall is emptied of its notes several times a year. These are treated as a prayer book and buried, rather than burned.
I myself have put prayers into the Wall and have friends who live in Jerusalem who will do so for me if I ask. My friends know the prayers, but no one else does. This is as it should be.

Ma'ariv may have broken the law when it published this prayer. It should not only run a front page apology to Senator Obama in Hebrew and English, but be made to pay a fine for such a transaction.

In addition, calls are being made for the public to boycott the paper until it does.

"With its actions, in my opinion, the newspaper broke several clauses of the 1967 Preservation of Holy Sites Law and violated rights based on Basic Law - Respect for Man and his Freedom," wrote Elon.

In addition, Elon called for a consumer boycott of the newspaper until it publishes an apology to Obama.

"I declare a consumer protest against Ma'ariv starting today. I urge all MKs, ministers, judges, soldiers and other public sector officials to freeze or cancel their subscriptions to Ma'ariv in the coming month," he wrote.

Western Wall Rabbi Shmuel Rabinovich condemned the removal of the note.

"Notes placed in the Wall are removed twice a year, on the eve of the Jewish New Year and Pessah, and placed in a special repository for religious items, under supervision to keep them hidden from human eyes," he said in a statement.

"Notes which are placed in the Western Wall are between the person and his Maker; Heaven forbid that one should read them or use them in any way. The custom of placing notes between the stones of the Western Wall is ancient and is used as a means of expression by a person praying to his Creator.

"This sacrilegious action deserves sharp condemnation and represents a desecration of the holy site."

On Sunday, Rabinovich returned the note to the Kotel.

And we at Monkey in the Middle condemn the removal and publication of this note. This was a private moment between Senator Obama and G-d, one that should not have been violated. Nor will we publish the note or its contents. It would be wrong.

Paraplegics to Walk Again!

Feel free to cross post this at will!

Exciting news for paraplegics. Although it is not a breakthrough in stem cell research, this will get millions of paraplegics out of the wheel chair and walking again.

Argo Medical Technologies Ltd has developed an revolutionary quasi-robotic system that will enable wheelchair users to walk again called ReWalk.

Argo Medical Technologies' wearable upright mobility system, or "exoskeleton," was specially designed for individuals with lower-limb disabilities, according to Los Angeles-based Israeli news Web site ISRAEL21c.

View video here

In a clip the company posted on the video-sharing Web site YouTube, a man described as having been confined to a wheelchair for over 20 years is shown walking, descending stairs and even driving a car.

Dr. Amit Goffer PhD, founder and director of Argo, and ReWalk's developer, explained the project's goal to ISRAEL21c.

"What we want to do is have the person wake up in the morning, put on clothes, put on the ReWalk, go to work and go throughout the day, wearing it," Goffer said.

Argo Medical Technologies is an Israeli company that
develops and markets walk restoration devices for people with lower limb disabilities. ReWalk is the first wearable, motorized quasi robotic suit. Partially concealable under clothing, ReWalk provides user-initiated mobility - leveraging advanced motion sensors, sophisticated robotic control algorithms, on-board computers, real-time software, actuation motors, tailored rechargeable batteries and composite materials.

ReWalk works with users. Users walk with the assistance of crutches, controlling suit movement through subtle changes in center of gravity and upper-body movements.

A first for paraplegics and another medical invention from Israel.

Israel is the nation on the cutting edge of medical technology.

A recipe for nations

Each nation's identity or what you could say is its flavor comes from our combined experiences and past. The US has a flavor spiced by our major documents (The Declaration of Independence and Constitution), our history and wars and the people who built this nation. Boil it all together for over 200 years.

Great Britain has an old flavor. It comes from its Celtic, Saxon, and Norman roots. Through in some Viking, Roman and Anglo spices and let it simmer for 2000 years.

Israel has a combination of flavors. It starts with very old spices of biblical times. Add in the bitter herbs of anti-Semitism and the Holocaust. Throw in a mixture of skill, hard work and Chuptzah. Stir. Bake for 60 years.

Each nation does what it MUST do to survive. If it means that they go to war, they do. The US did this 10 times. Great Britain fought many wars in its past (too many to count), the last being the Falklands. Israel was founded on war when it asked for peace. It will prepare for war, pray for peace and demand justice for its people.

That is why when groups like Code Pink and A.N.S.W.E.R cry to stop the war in Iraq and Afghanistan it destroys the nation's flavor. Makes it unpalatable.

And when groups like the ACLU and CAIR try to destroy the very essence of the national flavor by imposing their will on it, the flavor turns sour and bitter.

When bloggers and writers like Lionheart are censored by their government for speaking out at that which they find offensive. The nation's flavor is diminished. For the government cannot give any minority groups president over the majority. That isn't democracy in any form.

When a nation is attacked daily by an enemy like Israel has been these last 8 years. One does not force them to give up land to that enemy in the hopes that the enemy will stop its attacks.

You can support our troops by contributing to groups like the USO. Since 1941 the USO has been there for them with morale and support. A hot cup of coffee, a chance to call home, even computers to let the folks back home know they are ok.

You can support Lionheart in his struggle for Free Speech by clicking the Donate button on his website. It is in English Pounds so for us Americans we will have to work out the exchange rate first.

You can support Israel in its struggles with Hamas and the daily rocket attacks by supporting the Sderot Media Center.

It is through constant vigilance and maintenance that the flavors of our nations stay strong and true to the original.

Note to self:

I've got to stop writing when I'm hungry.

LIONHEART: Britain must be nicer to Moslems the UN Says

Cross posted from Radarsite

Please feel free to crosspost this permission is freely given

Daily Mail article below

When I read this I thought "is it a joke".

Then I thought, "it seems that the British government know their game is up so they have brought in the big boys to back them up"

There is a systematic campaign by all those World Organizations, like the U.N and the E.U who think they have claim to rule over the British Isles and its inhabitants to destroy the Country because the people aren't playing ball with their agenda.

It seems that the UK is the first Country on the agenda for destruction at the hands of the Islamic religion and the World Powers who are supporting them.

UK today, America tomorrow, because together we are the vanguard in this part of the World and final strong hold. The continent of Europe that has no borders is falling, bowing down to Allah and drowning on the sewage of Islam that has invaded and swamped the land from the four corners of the Islamic World with no real resistance from the people.

Continental Europe the new Eurabian peninsula in the making.

It seems that the UK and its people are not doing enough to let the new Nazi's take over so we must do more to help them in the process and one of the lead International bodies has now told us such.

Those in the U.N do not live where I live, or anywhere else in Great Britain where the Jihad is unfolding, they sit back in their heavily fortified mansions in some sweet smelling place on the globe, and force us to live in our communities with our hands tied behind our backs and tell us we must let our Moslem guests, rape, pillage and steal in their quest to take over rule of the land, and that we must keep our mouths shut or else, and be nicer to them while they do all these things to us.

Those who live within the 'Realm' will never bow down nor surrender to their enemies, whether that be the Islamic Kingdom, the Liberal Elite within the British government, or the U.N.

We will fight to the end, even if that means to die rather than become slaves, because our 'Ancient Realm' and our children and grandchildren's futures now hang in the balance and there will only be one winner after the dust has settled. Those watching should never underestimate who we are as a people upon these Isles, we have enough history within our DNA that speaks to us, and we live under the shadow of Almighty God who will not fail us as we acknowledge Him.

It is just a matter of time now.

I wonder how much Saudi Arabian oil money paid for this declaration against our people as these are the ones funding the growth of the Islamic religion within our land and telling these World organizations that everyone must be nice to Islam and Moslems or else, because of their control of what we need.

It is an utter joke, Saudi Arabia preaching to us about Human Rights when in their Country there is not one single Church, you walk down the wrong road and its punished by death, and the suppression and oppression of women is something from the cave man era. These are just a few of the examples of their Human Rights violations, and they come preaching to us in the Western World about Human Rights, telling us we must do more, and our Dhimmi leaders bow down to them and say 'yes master'.

We have changed our Education system so that it bows down to Islam, the heart of the Nation has been penetrated by Islamic militants who are hell bent on our destruction, the police can no longer do their jobs properly because of Moslem sensibilities, the British people are arrested with the fear of imprisonment if they speak out against Moslems and Islam, at every turn now and in every corner within British society we are being forced to bow down to Islamic dominance so that we fall in line with the Islamic way of life, the new way of life the devil wants to inflict upon the British people.

And we have top officials like the Judas Bishop, Loony Lord Phillips and a top lawyer all working together towards the implementation of Sharia Law into our Country, and the U.N says we must be nicer.

Honestly, the only nicer thing we can do is give them the keys to the kingdom and let them take over rule of the Nation now.

That is their end time goal after all.

The U.N have also said: The Government 'should take energetic measures to eliminate this phenomenon and ensure that authors of such acts of discrimination on the basis of religion are adequately deterred and sanctioned'.

So this gives the British government a green light to arrest an imprison people like me who will not accept the destruction and take over of our country and are writing to tell others about what is happening.

POLITICAL PRISONERS of the RESISTANCE – Who is going to be the first?

If the Powers that be who control the Civil Authorities that goven the internal workings within our Nations, work on behalf of World Organisations to close down free speech to protect Islam, then the fight against the modern global Jihad will take a different approach, and those who are against us, working detrimentally to the 'Defence of the Realm' in England are neo-Nazi collaborators.

When the next serious Islamic terror attack happens, nothing will be the same again and all of those TRAITORS who threaten our way of life now, in their warped plan for our Nation, will be held to account for their treachery. That's not a threat by me so don't arrest me for it, that's just how it has always been from generation to generation upon these Isles.

The U.N will not save the skins of these TRAITORS living within the British Isles, and money will be no good to them in the new order of things.

I can envisage all those power drunk individuals intoxicated to the point of oblivion on the smell of the wealth from Arab oil when it walks into the room where they are sitting, yacht, sports car, holiday home, Swiss bank account, secret gifts for the mistress, are all thoughts running through their minds when presented with this Arab servant and his silver lined tray, offering money for his masters will to be implemented.

Their eyes light up and sparkle, their hearts skip a beat at the thought of what is to come, with them rubbing their hands together with glee when they see their Arabian money man enter the room, and we the poor insignificant peasants are the ones bearing the brunt of this TREASON and TREACHORY against us, as our land is being stripped of its assets, sold to Arab oil men as they buy up our National assets, and our way of life changed so it fits the new masters, again sold to Arab oil men.

Matthew 6:24 "No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve G-d and mammon.

I wonder whether the future King of England is a servant of mammon and his Arab masters or whether he is the saving grace for the British Isles, who lives and serves under the shadow of the Lord God Almighty – The future patron Saint of England or ?

What does it profit a man if he gains the whole World yet forfeits his own soul?

Where do you stand and who do you stand with is the question we all must answer because the future and what it contains is inevitable.

With us or against us, and that includes the likes of David Cameron.

Is that blood running through his veins truly yellow now, with the god of his family being Arab oil money, or is he a true man and leader within the 'Realm' with mature blue blood flowing through those veins from the ages? Time will tell.

I can't say I personally like the company he keeps in Peter Oborne, the rabid dog of the Liberal Elite.

History will look back on these times and what we all went through, I only hope and pray that Islam does not succeed in its aims. It is all written in Biblical prophesy about what is unfolding now and what is to come, its just I am not an End time Biblical prophesy scholar so do not know what is written factually about this chapter in the life of mankind, I just go with what I know.

I do know how the story of creation ends though, so that gives me peace and comfort about the future, I just worry about the darkness we will all pass through before we get there now that we live in the Nuclear Age and face an enemy][ who wants to die in the process of killing us and taking over rule of our lands.

Daily Mail

Britain was told yesterday by a United Nations committee to take firm action to combat 'negative public attitudes' towards Muslims.

The nine-member human rights committee also criticised some of the UK's antiterror measures.
The body, which is composed of legal experts, said it was concerned ' negative public attitudes towards Muslim members of society' continued to develop in Britain.

From Monkey in the Middle:

Now that is the pot calling the kettle black. Saudi Arabia, that bastion of human rights telling the British to be nice to their Muslims while all the while they are doing everything to bring down the Kingdom of Great Britain and install the Islamic Kingdom of Britistan.
GENEVA — The UN human rights committee on Thursday, July 24, disparaged Britain over growing anti-Muslim sentiments, calling for reconsidering its draconian anti-terror measures.

"Negative public attitudes towards Muslim members of society continued to develop in Britain," said the committee in a summary cited by Reuters.

The 9-member body, composed of legal experts from a range of countries, said the government should take firm measures to fight the negative public attitudes towards Muslims.

The government "should take energetic measures to eliminate this phenomenon and ensure that authors of such acts of discrimination on the basis of religion are adequately deterred and sanctioned".

The stricture was issued after London presented a report earlier this month on how it was carrying out obligations under 1966 International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights.

Britain is home to nearly 2 million Muslims.

Since the 7/7 attacks, which killed 56 commuters including 4 Muslim bombers, British Muslims have complained of a growing Islamophobic climate in the European country.
I wonder why native Brits would have a climate of hatred towards Muslims? Could it be due to the rampant radicalization of British Muslims? Could it be because if you even criticize a Muslim you are hauled into court for a hate crime (like our dear Lionheart)? Is it because of the 7/7 attacks and the Doctor's plot?

The answer to these questions is YES! These and many more reasons are why the common man and woman in Great Britain are angry. They are tired of being treated as a second-class citizen in their native land. They are tired of being groomed for the Dhimmitude that their leaders want to impose upon them. They are tired of not being able to voice their dissent!


Brave Lionheart who has literally put his life on the line to speak out against the growing threat in his native Luton, for this he has been arrest and may face prison for hate speech. Thus he has been silenced in his native Great Britain. But the fight is not yet over. His posts will be read all over the world. They will be posted here and at other great sites such as Radarsite, Wake Up America, Maggie's Notebook, The Right Truth, Miss Beth's Victory Dance, and any other site which wants to post it.

But you dear truth seeker can do more than just read these posts and get angry. You can get involved. You too can speak out. Let your voice be heard. They have effectively silenced one of us, but the rest must be more vocal in his place. If you don't yet have a blog, start one. Speak your mind. Let the world hear your voice. Start today, start now. For every one of us who is silenced can we have 10 stand in his or her place yelling the truth?

Will you take the risk and let your voice be heard? The time of action is now. If you wait, you too will be silenced by those who would destroy our very way of life.

May G-d bless and keep dear Lionheart safe from harm.

G-d Bless Great Britain!
G-d Bless America!

QUESTION: When is a Lawsuit a Form of Jihad?

ANSWER: When it seeks to impose Shar'ia Law upon another. It is called Stealth Jihad and it is on the rise.

Here is another in a series of lawsuits brought by Muslims to impose Shar'ia dress codes on employers.
Two Muslim women sue McDonald's, alleging discrimination Two Muslim women say that a McDonald's restaurant refused to hire them, and insulted them during job interviews because they wear traditional Islamic dress.

Toi Whitfield, 20, of Detroit and Quiana Pugh, 25, of Dearborn sued McDonald's, the owner of the local franchise and its unidentified manager in Wayne County Circuit Court on Thursday. Their representative said they are considering filing civil rights complaints with the federal and state governments.

"I applied for the McDonald's position maybe two weeks ago and he simply (told me) I had to make a choice and remove my hijab, or I would not be able to establish employment there," Pugh said.

The women are seeking $10 million in a suit.
McDonald's has a uniform code. You have to wear their uniform and the Health Department has safety standards that must be met. Wearing the hajib is against both. Could you imagine what the reaction and lawsuit would be when these 2 hajib wearers caught on fire?

This is a con game by Muslims. A $10 million con game. Muslims know that they don't need to get jobs, they can sue employers for not hiring or firing them for not wearing the company uniform.

Muslim medics refuse to follow hospital safety procedures. The word clean is not associated with Muslims it seems.

Women medical students at Alder Hey children's hospital in Liverpool objected to rolling up their sleeves when washing their hands and removing arm coverings in theatre, claiming it is regarded as immodest.

Similar concerns were raised at Leicester University -and Sheffield University reported a case of a Muslim medic refusing to "scrub" because it left her forearms exposed.

Any doctor or nurse that doesn't do this should be kicked out the profession. End of discussion. Cleanliness is essential to modern medicine. It isn't essential to Muslim medicine. But Muslims really don't practice medicine do they?

I wonder if there will come a time in this nation when these followers of the Great Pedophile will demand that the US Military change its uniform to conform to their 7th Century barbaric views. I hope on that day the US Government will have the balls to kick them out of their offices, out of the courts and out of the nation.

Al-Qaeda Commander: Islam Doesn't Distinguish Betwen American People, American Gov't

Both Are Infidels and at War with Islam!

On July 21, 2008, Pakistan's independent television network Geo News aired an exclusive interview with Mustafa Abu Al-Yazid, Al-Qaeda's No. 3 man and top commander in Afghanistan. The interview, conducted in Arabic, was broadcast on Geo News with a voiceover in Urdu. It was later posted on Islamist websites, and its content was published in Pakistani newspapers.

Abu Al-Yazid, also known as Sheikh Sa'id, is a 52-year-old Egyptian with two wives and 14 children. In 1981 he was arrested in Egypt for involvement in the assassination of Egyptian president Anwar Al-Sadat, but was released a year later. In 1988, after heading various militant groups, he joined Al-Qaeda and shifted his base of operations to Afghanistan. In 1991 he worked for Osama bin Laden in Sudan as an accountant, and later became director of Al-Qaeda's financial affairs. He has also been a member of Al-Qaeda's Shura Council, in charge of financial planning, organizational affairs, and public relations. [1]

The following are excerpts from the Geo News interview:

Pakistan Caused Great Damage to Al-Qaeda by Supporting U.S.

In the interview, Abu Al-Yazid stated that Al-Qaeda was responsible for the attack on the Danish Embassy in Islamabad last June. He said that the bomber was a Saudi, and added: "We are proud to have carried out [this operation], and we congratulated our brothers for completing this task. We timed the attack in such a way that no Muslims were in the vicinity." Abu Al-Yazid also stated that Al-Qaeda had been responsible for the 1998 bombings of the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania. On a previous occasion, he claimed that the organization had carried out the December 27, 2007 assassination of former Pakistani prime-minister Benazir Bhutto.

Referring to the permissibility of suicide bombings, Abu Al-Yazid said that eminent Islamic scholars around the world had issued fatwas sanctioning them. He added: "Suicide attacks are justified by Islamic shar'ia. [However, Islamic] scholars [who are affiliated with] governments issue whatever fatwas they are told to issue... However, suicide attacks inside mosques are forbidden."

About the role of the Pakistani government in the U.S.-led war on terror, the Al-Qaeda commander remarked: "The Pakistani government is the government that has caused the greatest damage to the mujahideen. It was [Pakistani President] Pervez Musharraf...who caused the most damage to his neighbors, the mujahideen [of the Taliban], though it was [only] thanks to their sacrifice that the USSR did not invade Pakistan [in the 1980s]."

Abu Al-Yazid praised Khaled Sheikh Muhammad, the mastermind of the 9/11 attacks, who is currently on trial in the U.S., saying: "Khaled is a fearless man of whom the entire Muslim nation can be proud." [2]

"The Allegation that Al-Qaeda Is Promoting U.S. Interests Is a Lie"

Asked about a conspiracy theory that has gained currency in Pakistan, namely that Al-Qaeda was created by the U.S. in the 1980s with the purpose of fighting the Soviets in Afghanistan, Abu Al-Yazid said: "This is a lie and falsehood, and was exposed as such years ago... when Sheikh Osama bin Laden declared jihad against the U.S. Since then, [Al-Qaeda has carried out] a series of operations against the U.S... first the attacks on the U.S. Embassies in Kenya and Tanzania, then the attacks on U.S. targets in Yemen and Somalia, and culminating in the pious action of 9/11. This series of attacks on the U.S. is clear proof that this allegation - [namely] that Al-Qaeda is promoting U.S. interests - is [nothing but] a lie and falsehood." [3]

Abu Al-Yazid added: "Al-Qaeda is waging jihad against the U.S. because it is the head of the infidels and the pharaoh of our times. The U.S. is the flag-bearer of the new modern crusade... against the Muslim nation. We are [also] fighting the U.S. because it is standing by Israel and providing it with all sorts of assistance and power..." [4]

"Islam Does Not Distinguish Between the American People and the American Government"

Abu Al-Yazid stressed: "Islam does not distinguish between the American people and the American government, since both are in a state of war with Islam. After all, these are the people who elect the [American] governments, and who even elected [President George] Bush for a second term in office, despite their awareness of his agenda against Islam. Despite witnessing Bush's many brutal [actions] against the Muslims, these people re-elected him. They are the ones who pay the taxes that enable the American government and army to wage war and spill the blood of Muslims..." [5]

Abu Al-Yazid added that Al-Qaeda's attacks on the U.S. forces in Afghanistan were becoming more frequent, and that the government of Afghan President Hamid Karzai would not last. He also emphasized that Al-Qaeda receives no support from any Muslim government. [6]

From Monkey in the Middle:

Make no mistake, Al-Qaeda and Radical Muslims are at war with all Americans not just our government. They have only one aim. The subjugation of the world to Islam. To achieve this aim they will lie, cheat, steal, rape and kill. They will try to use the legal systems of the Civilized world against the people (and in Europe they are succeeding). They will never stop until either they have won the war or are totally and decisively defeated. This is a war in which we have no options but to fight it. We cannot allow ourselves the luxury of believing that if we try and democratize them they will behave themselves. No in this war there can only be one option. The elimination from the Earth of Islam. That will be the only option we can follow, for they will do the same to all of us if they win.
