From Lionheart: The Latest on the New Battle of Britain


l Quds Counter demo London 28th September


The sleeping English Lions are stirring are you one of them?
The Islamic Kingdom of Great Britain staged one of their annual demonstrations through the streets of London on Sunday showing their support for their Islamic Palestinian brothers and sisters in Israel.

The Al Quds brigade is an arm of the extreme Islamic Palestinian organisation Islamic Jihad that is operating in Israel, so this should show the mentality behind those who were demonstrating on OUR streets at the weekend.

Amongst other groups present in their lines, they were joined by the British wing of the extreme Islamic group Hiz But Tahrir whose open mandate is to transform Great Britain into an Islamic State and who call for Jews to be murdered wherever you find them. The Moslem Council of Britain which is a Government funded organisation that helps to influence policy making within OUR Country, and the extreme Left Wing Political Party Respect that is a terrorist supporting British Political party.

Why these groups are not banned from spewing their hatred on OUR streets is any ones guess, but at least now there is an uprising amongst the people of this Land who have sat back watching this hatred promoted for long enough and have finally said 'enough is enough' and taken to the streets to counter the hate.

This is the start of much bigger things as people start to wake up and realise what is happening to their Country. When they do they will now see that there are people out there already who are standing up and demonstrating for everything the hold dear within their ancestral homeland, which is the protection of OUR women and children and everything the Realm in which we live encompasses.

This is OUR Country so what right have these Molems to be doing and saying what they are on OUR streets?

It's a free for all for them now in OUR Country and all in the name of multiculturalism. Its their right, its their culture, its their religion, lets let them do what they want because it's a part of multiculturalism.

NO, they shouldn't be allowed to do just what they want, just like British citizens are not allowed to do what they want, I think the term for this is ANARCHY

This is National suicide being inflicted upon the people by the political class and then enforced upon us against OUR will by the 'Power of the State', and by their Civil servants who need to put food on their families tables so are actively helping the destruction of their Nation.

When all is said and done they and their families will know what part they played in the genocide of Great Britain just like those who worked for the Gestapo in Nazi Germany knew what part they played in the Holocaust with the genocide of Millions of innocent Jews.

The actions of the Islamic Kingdom of Great Britain and its followers are an affront to the British peoples society and way of life, not only that, it endangers and threatens peaceful minorities who are living in OUR Land. This is OUR Land and any guests or long term residents have a right to be protected by the heirs of the British Isles, just like the Police are now doing by bending over backwards to protect Moslems and their benign religion from even the smallest offence like written words which might hurt their feelings. Moslems in Britain have brought everything upon themselves because of the Koran in which they follow. Protection of others is the hospitality that the British people extend to any foreign natives upon OUR Isles as long as they do not threaten the peaceful co-existence of the people living here and the society to which we belong that has been built over millennia by OUR ancestors.

This is OUR Ancestral homeland no one else's!

Many people now within Great Britain realise that by its nature the Islamic religion and the conduct of its Moslem followers are both highly un-conducive to OUR civilized society and are a direct threat to our living environment.

Moderates/Radicals, if they uphold their Religion then they are one and the same just playing different parts of the ultimate religious agenda within OUR Land which is to transform OUR Nation into an Islamic State ruled by Sharia Law.

The problem has gone way past the point of no return for the Political Class who now serve the interests of this benign religious force just too keep the peace under the guise of multiculturalism, with the real problems of this course of action now felt by the innocent men and women on the streets who are now face to face with this invading religious military political force that is exercising its new found strength and power over the innocent people of OUR Nation and OUR way of life.

The heirs of these Isles along with every other innocent race and creed who live peacefully along side of us have had enough of this evil confrontation from the Islamic religion and its Moslem followers that threatens our very human existence and OUR way of life.

The anti-Al Quds demonstration this weekend is the start of the uprising amongst the people who have said 'enough is enough' we don't want these people on OUR streets, we don't want them to be freely allowed to spew their hatred against us and against OUR peaceful friends, and have decided to leave the comfort of their own homes, give up their days off and take to the streets in protest.

There are hundreds of thousands more people like this out there and its is just a matter of time and circumstances until they too take to the streets in protest.

It must be very unsettling to the minority 300,000+ Jewish residents of Britain to see such hatred towards them actually allowed to be promoted on British streets, but they can rest assured that the heirs of this land stand 'shoulder to shoulder' with them in such uncertain days that we are no living through and not just here in the UK but throughout the World.

Islamic teaching says that the end will not come until all the Jews are killed, that is why all prominent Islamic organisations throughout the World justify and actively promote the murder of innocent Jews just like Hitler did during the Holocaust. They are openly and actively calling for another Holocaust in our generation.

People should look at Moslems and the beliefs and desires they hold dear and realise just what savage barbarians they are just like Hitler and the Nazis were.

Not all those who claim the label Moslem are Moslems just like not all who claim the label CofE are Christian, it is the ones who live by their religion and the teachings and example of their child molesting warmongering false prophet Mohamed.

You will see from the photographs and the video that the Moslems demonstrating on OUR streets were holding placards saying 'We are all Hezbollah now'. Hezbollah is a designated terrorist organisation in the 'War on Terror' and we have these people living amongst us saying we are all Hezbollah.

What would the World say if there were people marching through the streets of London saying 'War are all Nazis'?

It is no different and just as hate filled yet it is allowed and condoned under the banner of multiculturalism.

The inevitable has finally arrived and long overdue and I take my hat off to the leaders of March for England and the U.B.A who have organised an grass roots movement to make OUR voices heard, and to all those who stand behind them and have taken to the streets in protest of everything that is now happening in OUR society, and what OUR Country has become.

In their own words:

U.B.A stands shoulder to Shoulder with Sikhs, Jews, in fact anyone whom unites aginst the new nazism that we struggled through world wars to remove... hence you see us stand besides the jewish flag... if you look at the lambeth palace i held a danish and jewish flag.. as the police thought we was right wing, a right wing idiot would die before hold a isreali flag.

March For England is for England... and in that atmosphere anything that threatens our way of life is against the English... be it terrorists, governments e.t.c... united as one but for Queen and Country

U.B.A is solely against terrorists (islam) over-riding our country.....

this is where we unite... two groups united even though we hold strong to the union jack, and they the St George... it is a strong enemy which via government has slowly started to over-ride our freedom, way of life...e.t.c... so both have united,.. but under an umbrella in support.


Both groups joined SIOE (Stop the Islamisation of Europe) recently when they marched to Lambeth Palace on September 11th to demonstrate against the introduction of Sharia Law into OUR Country.

The time has come for people to stand up before it's too late!

No surrender is the British motto, and may God bless these organisations, fill their ranks and bring other groups by their side (no-Neo Nazi's welcome here thank you) to join forces to let the peoples of these Isles voices be heard for the sake of everything we hold dear now, and for the sake of OUR children and grandchildren in the future.

What would OUR forefathers say about what has become of the 'Realm' that they handed down to us, that which has been handed down from generation to generation for safe keeping and protection from ancient of days.

L'shanah tovah!


Happy New Year to all of my readers!



The 25 of Elul is the traditional day of the beginning of Creation, as recorded in the first chapter of Genesis. While other religions start their calendar from the founding of the religion, the Jewish calendar begins with Creation. In Jewish consciousness, every nation is integral to humanity: Non-Jews were welcome to bring offerings to the Holy Temple in Jerusalem, which the prophet Isaiah referred to as the "house for all nations." Technically, the Jewish calendar does not begin until day six of Creation (Rosh Hashana), which commemorates the birth of mankind. This is because human beings are the pinnacle of Creation, enjoined to protect the world and to utilize all its resources to bring the world to its spiritual completion.

Honey and Apples for you my friends.

I wish to all of you my readers a very healthy and prosperous New Year. May the blessing of God be showered upon all.

L'shanah tovah!

Tancredo: UN GET OUT!

Hat tip to No Compromise When it Comes to Being Right

I'm beginning to really love this man.

Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton, CO) is beginning to look like a true leader for the House of Representatives. First it was his anti-Shar'ia legislation that he introduced to the US Congress and now it is this.
U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-Littleton) introduced legislation today that would effectively move the United Nations headquarters out of the United States. The legislation is being introduced amid incessant anti-American and anti-Jewish political grandstanding from the podium of the General Assembly.

“The U.N. has coddled brutal dictators, anti-Semites, state sponsors of terrorism, and nuclear proliferators – while excluding democratic countries from membership and turning a blind eye to humanitarian tragedies and gross violations of human rights around the globe,” Tancredo said. “The U.N.’s continued presence in the United States is an embarrassment to our nation, and the time has come for this ineffective organization to pack its bags and hit the road.”

Tancredo’s bill, dubbed the U.N. Eviction Act, would direct Attorney General Michael Mukasey to initiate condemnation proceedings against all United Nations properties within the United States, and sell the property to the highest bidder on the open market. The proceeds will be given to the Treasury Department to pay down the national debt. The bill would also bar the future purchase of property in the United States or U.S. territories by the U.N. or any of its agencies, and revokes the diplomatic privileges and immunities that U.N. officials and representatives currently enjoy.

“I refuse to sit idly by while Americans are forced to host Islamofascist dictators, like Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, so they can spew anti-American rhetoric just blocks from Ground Zero,” Tancredo continued.

The organization has also become little more than a rubber stamp for Chinese and Russian foreign policy initiatives – blocking membership by the democratic nation of Taiwan in the world body, and failing to take any meaningful steps to halt the ongoing genocide in Sudan or the illicit nuclear programs in North Korea and Iran.

“If the U.N. is so keen to accommodate the foreign policy demands of rogue nations and dictatorships, perhaps the world body might be more comfortable relocating to one,” concluded Tancredo. “I’m sure Ban Ki-Moon will have no trouble securing a new location in downtown Pyongyang or Tehran.”
It is high time that the United States pull out of that Tower of Babel and reject all ideas coming from its walls. The ground (after a good decontamination clean-up) could be turned into a more useful and rewarding place. Low cost housing, a new school, a hospital or even a park. There the people of New York would not have to put up with the likes of Hugo Chavez or Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Just think of the happy dogs roaming in a lovely park, doing their business where once these men spoke their words of hatred.

Another good result in leaving the UN would be the billions of US taxpayer dollars that we would save each year. Money that has been used for corruption and greed by the UN since the 1960's. This money could better be used to help reduce the US Debt.

The City of New York would benefit the most. For their taxpayers are forced to pay extra to have the honor of hosting the UN. Instead they would no longer have to foot the bill for the extra police needed when the UN General Assembly meets or when one or another of these diplomats (and I use that term loosely) decides not to pay parking tickets, have car insurance, commits a crime or any other offense that they are known to do.

Way to go Congressman Tancredo. This nation needs more men and women in the Congress with your ideas and beliefs.

Some times it feels like a Monday.

Imagine this is you.

You are an F-16 pilot, you are driving to your base when suddenly another car tried to force you off of the road. What do you do?

For 2 unfortunate Bedouins they tried to car jack the wrong man.
Around 8:30 am, while the pilot was traveling to the Nevatim army base near the town of Arad, two cars driven by two Bedouins approached the pilot's car. One Bedouin drove passed the pilot at high speed and then stopped abruptly. Later, the two Bedouins attempted to force the pilot's car to the side of the road. During this entire incident, the pilot was signaling to the other drivers that they were behaving dangerously and that he would not take part in this game.

At one point the Bedouins managed to forced the pilot to stop the car at the side of the road. They subsequently approached his car with bats.

When the pilot got out of his car, one of the Bedouins attempted to slap him. Unfortunately for the attackers, it turned out that the pilot is not only proficient in flying aircraft, but also in hand-to-hand combat. After a short struggle, both Bedouins were on the ground, moaning in pain.

As the pilot arrived at the Nevatim army base, he reported the incident to his commanding officer, who informed police. When police officers arrived at the scene, both Bedouins were not there, supposedly carried off by their friends. According to information acquired by police, the two were badly beaten up.
Oh well. Maybe next time they will be luckier and only have an armed Army officer to deal with.

Flip-flop Missile style

Hat tip to Stop the ACLU

During the Primaries Barack Hussein Obama came out flatly against any missile defense system. He would stop all funding of such programs and including space weapons and technology.

During the debate on Friday night he reversed himself flip-flopped again on this. Now he says he has always been in favor of the development of a missile defense system.

Let us go to the videotape.



View at YouTube

The strange thing about this system is that part of it is being developed in conjunction with the IDF. Now why would Barack Hussein Obama want to stop such development? Could it be he is afraid that his Muslim backers (Hamas, Hizbollah, Iran) might be stopped by this?

Another lie from Obama and just another reason not to vote for him.


Farewell to a legend.

Paul Newman, actor and philanthropist passed from this world Friday. He was 83.

Paul Newman was known for his roles in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof," "Exodus," "The Hustler," "Cool Hand Luke," "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid," "The Sting" and "The Verdict", yet never lost his appeal as he grew older.

Paul Newman and Elizabeth Taylor in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof.

He was born in Shaker Heights, Ohio. His father was Jewish and his mother was born to a Slovak Catholic family. Newman had described himself as Jewish, stating that, "it's more of a challenge".

He graduated from Shaker Heights High School in 1943, he briefly attended Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.

Paul Newman served in the Navy in World War II in the Pacific theater. Newman was sent to the Navy V-12 program at Ohio University, with hope of being accepted for pilot training, but this plan was foiled when a flight physical revealed him to be colorblind. He was sent instead to boot camp and then on to further training as a radioman and gunner. As a radioman/gunner, he served aboard the USS Bunker Hill during the battle for Okinawa in the spring of 1945. He was ordered to the ship as radioman/gunner in an Avenger with a draft of replacements shortly before the attack, but by a fluke of war was held back because his pilot had an ear infection. The rest of his detail died.



Paul Newman and Robert Redford as Butch Cassidy and Sundance Kid.

He made his Broadway debut in William Inge's 1953 play "Picnic," opposite Kim Stanley, one of the most successful stage actresses of her time. The next year he made his first Hollywood film, "The Silver Chalice," a bomb that he mocked for the rest of his life. He even took out a newspaper ad apologizing for his performance.

Newman was married twice. His first marriage was to Jackie Witte and lasted from 1949 to 1958. Together they had a son, Scott, and two daughters, Susan Kendall and Stephanie. Newman married actress Joanne Woodward on January 29, 1958. They had three daughters: Elinor "Nell" Teresa, Melissa "Lissy" Stewart, and Claire "Clea" Olivia. He observed that just because he was a sex symbol there was no reason to commit adultery. "Why would I go out for a hamburger when [I] have steak at home?" he asked.

Paul Newman as Ari Ben-Canaan in Exodus.

Consistent with his work for liberal causes, Newman publicly supported Ned Lamont's candidacy in the 2006 Connecticut Democratic Primary against Senator Joe Lieberman, and was even rumored as a candidate himself until Lamont emerged as a credible alternative. He has donated to Chris Dodd's presidential campaign.

was an avid auto racing enthusiast, and first became interested in motorsports ("the first thing that I ever found I had any grace in") while training for and filming Winning, a 1969 film. Newman's first professional event was in 1972, in Thompson, Connecticut, and he was a common competitor in Sports Car Club of America events for the rest of the decade, eventually winning several championships.

Newman founded Newman's Own, a line of food products, in 1982. The brand started with salad dressing, and has expanded to include pasta sauce, lemonade, popcorn, and salsa, and wine among other things. Newman established a policy that all proceeds from the sale of Newman's Own products, after taxes, would be donated to charity.

One beneficiary of his philanthropy is the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp, a residential summer camp for seriously ill children, which is located in Ashford, Connecticut. Newman cofounded the camp in 1988; it was named after the gang in his film Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Paul Newman finally won an Oscar in 1986 for The Color of Money. Yet he will best be remembered for his generous heart.

The Nigerian is back, posing as an Army Sgt.

We have all heard of the Nigerian Prince and his money. The orphans and their money (again Nigerians), well now they are at it again. This time it is closer to home. I received this e-mail last night and thought I'd share it with you.
Hello,

This mail will definitely be coming to you as a surprise, but i must crave your indulgence to introduce myself to you. I am Sgt. Mark Fitzgerald, an American soldier, currently serving in the third infantry division in Iraq.

I am in Kuwait on duty break. I and my partner, secretly moved some abandoned cash in a mansion belonging to the late president, Saddam Hussein and the total cash is 25million USD. As I write this letter to you, this box is with security firm in cash as I secretly moved it out of Iraq to a security firm for deposit.

You don㦙 have to be afraid of anything as no one else knows about this and everything is safe.

I would be pleased and grateful to you if you could assist us in receivingb this box on our behalf as I will be heading back soon to camp in Iraq to join my Colleagues.Of course, I will give you some money for your efforts. We have limited time now, kindly get back to me immediately. Moving the funds out of here is not going to be a problem as arrangements are being made towards that.

All I want from you is your trust and assurance that if the box gets to you,You can keep it in a safe place until our arrival.
I have to stop here for now, as your response will determine our subsequent correspondence.

Please do not expose us for security reasons.
In God we trust,
Sgt. Mark Fitzgerald,
I receive letters from men and women in Iraq and Afghanistan all the time, so receiving an e-mail from a soldier isn't new. But I had to laugh when I saw that one.

Now the 3rd Infantry Division is currently at its home base in Georgia and I don't think that this Sgt. Mark Fitzgerald (if there ever was one) is on his way back to Iraq. But some gullible person might actually believe this e-mail and get caught up in the scam. I have sent this e-mail on to the proper authorities, but like other scams of this time, it will be very hard to track down.

Some remarkable things about the 3rd Infantry Division:
Created on November 21, 1917, the 3rd saw action at the Marne River during WW 1. It received its nickname then: Rock of the Marne.

It was the only division to fight Germany on all fronts in WWII. Their days in combat numbered 531. From Morocco to Tunisia, from Sicily to Anzio, then to Rome. They came ashore on the Southern France front and fought their way to the Rhone River. They entered and captured Berchtesgaden.

This was Audie Murphy's Division.

You can find out more at the Society of the 3rd Infantry Division, US Army. I hope that you will check them out.

Gun Control...It doesn't work!

Hat tip to Rebel Radius

In every nation that has gotten rid of their private ownership of guns (and in some knives), violent crime has risen. Every dictatorship that comes to power first limits then removes guns from private ownership. This is a fact, not a myth.





View at YouTube

Now the United Nations is trying to remove all personal ownership of guns. This is regardless of the individual nation's laws. This must be stopped!
Since the mid-1990s, some sources have stated that the United Nations is trying to disarm the world by taking control of all guns, including in particular, guns held by private citizens in the United States.

On Thursday, May 31st, the United Nations General Assembly approved a gun control treaty that calls on all nations to work together “to prevent, combat and eradicate the illicit manufacturing of and trafficking in firearms, their parts and components, and ammunition.”

The public face of the treaty is the lie that it is supposed to make it easier to crack down on illegal gun trafficking by helping authorities trace the global movement of all new weapons. *** The small print of this treaty no doubt contains a raft of other restrictions and requirements that will have the effect of disarming ordinary citizens everywhere. The result will be that only UN forces and governments will have guns.

This spells doom for freedom anywhere in the world.
We cannot allow these idiots to undermine the US Constitution and take away our rights.

Just another reason to leave the UN forever.

Another result of accepting Shar'ia Law


Hat tip to Dhimmi Watch

For over 2 weeks now Shar'ia Law has been incorporated into the British legal system. This was done to appease their Muslim minority. The government officials stated that this would not impact on the average Brit. Yet just looking at this report now, we can see the effect of caving into the wishes of the minority, and the impact on the majority.

Muslims try to get alcohol banned at Tesco

Bedford Today, UK September 25 2008
By Sally-Anne Johnson

Petitions handed in as licence hearing looms

More than 150 people have signed petitions imploring Luton Borough Council to deny the new Tesco Express in Bury Park an alcohol licence.

The bid from the supermarket giant has upset Muslims living in the area, some of whom say they find the idea of alcohol being sold offensive.

Next Tuesday councillors will make a decision on the application, which, if successful, would see the store permitted to sell alcohol from 6am until 11pm every day (...)
And what would happen if they did this all over Great Britain? How long will it be until the Muslim minority will close the pubs? Demand women to wear the hajib? Force the full Dhimmitude on the majority? How long would it be until the average Brit would take to the streets and riot?

This is why we in the United States must resist all attempts to incorporate Shar'ia Law into any aspect of our legal system. This is why each and every time groups like CAIR try to force employers and communities into giving special treatment to Muslims, we must oppose it forcefully and with all our means possible.

We must remind our Representatives that:

Shar'ia Law isn't compatible with the US Constitution!

McCain vs. Obama A knockdown!

Last night's winner

I won't call last nights debate a knockout for John McCain since there are still 3 more debates left to go. But it was a first round knockdown for the Senator from Arizona.

Here are some highlights:
MCCAIN: But I want to emphasize one point to all Americans tonight. This isn't the beginning of the end of this crisis. This is the end of the beginning, if we come out with a package that will keep these institutions stable.

And we've got a lot of work to do. And we've got to create jobs. And one of the areas, of course, is to eliminate our dependence on foreign oil.

Senator Obama suspended those requests for pork-barrel projects after he was running for president of the United States. He didn't happen to see that light during the first three years as a member of the United States Senate, $932 million in requests.

Maybe to Senator Obama it's not a lot of money. But the point is that -- you see, I hear this all the time. "It's only $18 billion." Do you know that it's tripled in the last five years? Do you know that it's gone completely out of control to the point where it corrupts people? It corrupts people.

That's why we have, as I said, people under federal indictment and charges. It's a system that's got to be cleaned up.

I have fought against it my career. I have fought against it. I was called the sheriff, by the -- one of the senior members of the Appropriations Committee. I didn't win Miss Congeniality in the United States Senate.

Now, Senator Obama didn't mention that, along with his tax cuts, he is also proposing some $800 billion in new spending on new programs.

Now, that's a fundamental difference between myself and Senator Obama. I want to cut spending. I want to keep taxes low. The worst thing we could do in this economic climate is to raise people's taxes.

Right now, the United States of American business pays the second-highest business taxes in the world, 35 percent. Ireland pays 11 percent.

I want to cut that business tax. I want to cut it so that businesses will remain in -- in the United States of America and create jobs.

We had an energy bill before the United States Senate. It was festooned with Christmas tree ornaments. It had all kinds of breaks for the oil companies, I mean, billions of dollars worth. I voted against it; Senator Obama voted for it.

You've got to look at our record. You've got to look at our records. That's the important thing.

Who fought against wasteful and earmark spending? Who has been the person who has tried to keep spending under control?

Who's the person who has believed that the best thing for America is -- is to have a tax system that is fundamentally fair? And I've fought to simplify it, and I have proposals to simplify it.

Let's give every American a choice: two tax brackets, generous dividends, and, two -- and let Americans choose whether they want the -- the existing tax code or they want a new tax code.

And so, again, look at the record, particularly the energy bill. But, again, Senator Obama has shifted on a number of occasions. He has voted in the United States Senate to increase taxes on people who make as low as $42,000 a year.

Senator Obama has the most liberal voting record in the United States Senate. It's hard to reach across the aisle from that far to the left.

The point -- the point is -- the point is, we need to examine every agency of government.

I saved the taxpayers $6.8 billion by fighting a contract that was negotiated between Boeing and DOD that was completely wrong. And we fixed it and we killed it and the people ended up in federal prison so I know how to do this because I've been involved these issues for many, many years.

Look, we are sending $700 billion a year overseas to countries that don't like us very much. Some of that money ends up in the hands of terrorist organizations. We have to have wind, tide, solar, natural gas, flex fuel cars and all that but we also have to have offshore drilling and we also have to have nuclear power.

Senator Obama opposes both storing and reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel. You can't get there from here and the fact is that we can create 700,000 jobs by building constructing 45 new nuclear power plants by the year 2030. Nuclear power is not only important as far as eliminating our dependence on foreign oil but it's also responsibility as far as climate change is concerned and the issue I have been involved in for many, many years and I'm proud of the work of the work that I've done there along with President Clinton.

And that was just on economic/domestic issues. On foreign policy John McCain shined:

MCCAIN: I think the lessons of Iraq are very clear that you cannot have a failed strategy that will then cause you to nearly lose a conflict. Our initial military success, we went in to Baghdad and everybody celebrated. And then the war was very badly mishandled. I went to Iraq in 2003 and came back and said, we've got to change this strategy. This strategy requires additional troops, it requires a fundamental change in strategy and I fought for it. And finally, we came up with a great general and a strategy that has succeeded. This strategy has succeeded. And we are winning in Iraq. And we will come home with victory and with honor. And that withdrawal is the result of every counterinsurgency that succeeds.

OBAMA: Well, this is an area where Senator McCain and I have a fundamental difference because I think the first question is whether we should have gone into the war in the first place.

Now six years ago, I stood up and opposed this war at a time when it was politically risky to do so because I said that not only did we not know how much it was going to cost, what our exit strategy might be, how it would affect our relationships around the world, and whether our intelligence was sound, but also because we hadn't finished the job in Afghanistan.

Yes Senator Obama did oppose the war, but he wasn't in the Senate then. And now we are at war and he is still talking about what he would have done years ago, not today.
MCCAIN: Senator Obama is the chairperson of a committee that oversights NATO that's in Afghanistan. To this day, he has never had a hearing.

OBAMA: Look, I'm very proud of my vice presidential selection, Joe Biden, who is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and as he explains, and as John well knows, the issues of Afghanistan, the issues of Iraq, critical issues like that, don't go through my subcommittee because they're done as a committee as a whole.
Yes Senator, Joe Biden is more experienced than you in every field except how to make a speech. There you exceed him.
OBAMA: ... of judgment, of whether or not -- of whether or not -- if the question is who is best-equipped as the next president to make good decisions about how we use our military, how we make sure that we are prepared and ready for the next conflict, then I think we can take a look at our judgment.

MCCAIN: I'm afraid Senator Obama doesn't understand the difference between a tactic and a strategy. But the important -- I'd like to tell you, two Fourths of July ago I was in Baghdad. General Petraeus invited Senator Lindsey Graham and me to attend a ceremony where 688 brave young Americans, whose enlistment had expired, were reenlisting to stay and fight for Iraqi freedom and American freedom.
And this strategy, and this general, they are winning. Senator Obama refuses to acknowledge that we are winning in Iraq.

OBAMA: That's not true.
Yes Senator it is true. Not once has Obama ever has stated that he was wrong. That scares me. For he seems to believe he is never wrong, everybody else is.
OBAMA: I opposed funding a mission that had no timetable, and was open- ended, giving a blank check to George Bush. We had a difference on the timetable. We didn't have a difference on whether or not we were going to be funding troops.

MCCAIN: Admiral Mullen suggests that Senator Obama's plan is dangerous for America.
No Senator. Again you try to fool the American people. You have voted against all funding for our troops. It seems by your record that you hate the military.
MCCAIN: I -- I don't think that Senator Obama understands that there was a failed state in Pakistan when Musharraf came to power. Everybody who was around then, and had been there, and knew about it knew that it was a failed state.

And I'll tell you, I had a town hall meeting in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire, and a woman stood up and she said, "Senator McCain, I want you to do me the honor of wearing a bracelet with my son's name on it."

He was 22 years old and he was killed in combat outside of Baghdad, Matthew Stanley, before Christmas last year. This was last August, a year ago. And I said, "I will -- I will wear his bracelet with honor."

And this was August, a year ago. And then she said, "But, Senator McCain, I want you to do everything -- promise me one thing, that you'll do everything in your power to make sure that my son's death was not in vain."

A war that I was in, where we had an Army, that it wasn't through any fault of their own, but they were defeated. And I know how hard it is for that -- for an Army and a military to recover from that. And it did and we will win this one and we won't come home in defeat and dishonor and probably have to go back if we fail.

OBAMA: Jim, let me just make a point. I've got a bracelet, too, from Sergeant - from the mother of Sergeant Ryan David Jopeck, sure another mother is not going through what I'm going through.
Checking out this hit I found out that Senator Obama doesn't wear his bracelet and didn't know the name on it until a few days ago.

MCCAIN: My reading of the threat from Iran is that if Iran acquires nuclear weapons, it is an existential threat to the State of Israel and to other countries in the region because the other countries in the region will feel compelling requirement to acquire nuclear weapons as well.

Now we cannot allow a second Holocaust. Let's just make that very clear. What I have proposed for a long time, and I've had conversation with foreign leaders about forming a league of democracies, let's be clear and let's have some straight talk. The Russians are preventing significant action in the United Nations Security Council.

I have proposed a league of democracies, a group of people - a group of countries that share common interests, common values, common ideals, they also control a lot of the world's economic power. We could impose significant meaningful, painful sanctions on the Iranians that I think could have a beneficial effect.

And the Pakistanis are going to have to understand that that bombing in the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad was a signal from the terrorists that they don't want that government to cooperate with us in combating the Taliban and jihadist elements.

OBAMA
: But we are also going to have to, I believe, engage in tough direct diplomacy with Iran and this is a major difference I have with Senator McCain, this notion by not talking to people we are punishing them has not worked. It has not worked in Iran, it has not worked in North Korea. In each instance, our efforts of isolation have actually accelerated their efforts to get nuclear weapons. That will change when I'm president of the United States.
Obama will talk and Iran will bomb. Obama is just another appeaser who will sell out everyone so he can claim the Nobel Peace Prize. Even if it means another 6 million Jews are to die.
MCCAIN: But after 9/11, Senator Joe Lieberman and I decided that we needed a commission, and that was a commission to investigate 9/11, and find out what happened, and fix it.

And we were -- we were opposed by the administration, another area where I differed with this administration. And we were stymied until the families of 9/11 came, and they descended on Washington, and we got that legislation passed.

And there were a series of recommendations, as I recall, more than 40. And I'm happy to say that we've gotten written into law most of those reforms recommended by that commission. I'm proud of that work, again, bipartisan, reaching across the aisle, working together, Democrat and Republican alike.

But I can tell you that I think America is safer today than it was on 9/11. But that doesn't mean that we don't have a long way to go.

And I'd like to remind you, also, as a result of those recommendations, we've probably had the largest reorganization of government since we established the Defense Department. And I think that those men and women in those agencies are doing a great job.

But we still have a long way to go before we can declare America safe, and that means doing a better job along our borders, as well.

OBAMA: And this is the greatest country on Earth. But because of some of the mistakes that have been made -- and I give Senator McCain great credit on the torture issue, for having identified that as something that undermines our long-term security -- because of those things, we, I think, are going to have a lot of work to do in the next administration to restore that sense that America is that shining beacon on a hill.
The trouble is Senator is that millions of people strive to come to this great nation. Millions more cross our borders illegally to achieve their dreams. If this wasn't a great nation, they wouldn't come. You just don't get it. There is no but to that statement. This is the greatest nation on the Earth. And I don't think you ever will.

A Horror Tale of Financial Woes

Hat tip to Maggie's Notebook

Once upon a time, in a land called the United States, people would try and buy a home. They would save for years and keep their credit clean. They would look through out the neighborhood for a home they would like to buy. Then they would hope and pray that their local bank would grant them the all important mortgage. When the bank would grant this wondrous gift, they would rejoice and move into their new home. But this gift of mortgage came with a price. They had to pay it back to the bank. A payment to be made on the 1st of each month, over the course of 30 years. The people did not mind paying the mortgage. It was not as much as the rent they had been paying. The nation was in good shape when this was done.

Then in 1977 a strange thing happened. Jimmy Carter, then the President of the United States, convinced the members of Congress (the people who make the laws) to pass the Community Reinvestment Act. This Act gave birth to 2 children: Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac. This Act was a good idea, for it gave the gift of mortgage to more people, in neighborhoods in which the banks originally gave a redline to. As long as the people had good credit and some savings, the bank would give them a mortgage and the nation was in good shape.

Then one day in 1995, a new President by the name of Bill Clinton decided that although the Community Reinvestment Act was good, it needed to become better, to let more people buy a home. So he changed the Act so everybody could buy a home.

This should have been a good thing, but it was the worst thing that could have been done. For no longer would the people have to have good credit and savings to get the gift of mortgage. They could have no savings, bad credit and still get this marvelous gift.

And no longer would the gift of mortgage be fixed at a special rate. It would be variable and be able to climb to any rate the bank wanted. These special mortgages were called Subprime and allowed the banks to make a lot of money on their mortgages.

And the people rejoiced and everyone went out to buy their home. But a strange thing started to happen. Homes that once were $60,000 or $70,000 were now being sold for $250,000, $400,000 or even $500,000. Builders started to build new homes and selling them for more than they were actually worth. But the people would scream "We want this house!" and the bank would give them the gift of mortgage.

But not all was right. A new President, George W. Bush, saw that this could become a problem. People with low incomes buying homes they really could not afford. And he tried to make it better. In the year 2003 he tried to move governmental supervision of Fanny Mae and Freddie Mac to a new agency created within the Department of the Treasury. But the evil Democrats who ruled the Congress said, NO!

Again voices were raised that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were not well. They tried to sound the alarm in the year of 2005. A group of Senators from the Congress, headed by John McCain, tried to heal the 2 children, but to no avail. For the evil Democrats said NO! IT WOULD HURT THE POOR. So nothing again was done.

Then came the bad year, 2007. What was warned about started to happen. The people who didn't have the good credit or the savings found that their gift of mortgage was not a very good gift. The payment that they owed each month was getting bigger and bigger, while their paycheck was getting smaller and smaller. And when they could not pay their mortgage to the bank, the bank took their house away.

This was happening to many people who cried to their President and Congress for help. But what did their Congress do? They just laughed. For Fanny and Freddie were sneaky children. They would give their friends in Congress many gifts and presents. Gifts of special mortgages (that the poor people could never get) and gifts of money. Some got many gifts. Dodd of Connecticut got $133,900, Obama of Illinois got $105,849, Pelosi of California got $32,750. And they did nothing for they wanted more gifts.

And then the crash came, August of 2008. The banks started failing and there was no one to give the gift of mortgage. For Fanny and Freddie were very, very ill. They couldn't save the banks or even themselves. And the Congress finally had to do something before they would die. But what did they do? They gave them more money. $700 trillion of the people's money they would give. It would help save the 2 children and give the banks a chance to live.

But them people who knew how the banks should have worked said please don't do this, it will do more harm than good. To give such a sum without government oversite, would only create the same conditions we now face.

So nothing is being done, and banks are failing. The people are still losing their homes, and all we get is the evil Democrats crying: IT'S JOHN MCCAIN'S FAULT!

IT IS NOT!

Jesus was a Palestinian and other nonsense being taught in our schools.

Hat tip to Yid with Lid

American schools are rife with left-wing propaganda disguised as knowledge. But now American school children are being taught that Jesus was a Palestinian, that Jews and Judaism are legalistic, and that Jews care only about the letter of the law and ignore its spirit.
American elementary and high school textbooks contain many "gross misrepresentations" of Judaism, Christianity and Israel, according to a book-length study released this week by the San Francisco-based Institute for Jewish and Community Research.

"It is shocking to discover that history and geography textbooks widely used in America's elementary and secondary classrooms contain some of the very same inaccuracies about Christianity, Judaism and the Middle East as those [used] in Iran," the IJCR said in a summary of the findings of the five-year study.

In examining the 28 most widely-used history, geography and social studies textbooks in America, researchers Dr. Gary Tobin and Dennis Ybarra found some 500 instances of "errors, inaccuracies and even propaganda" on these issues. Tens of millions of schoolchildren in all 50 states use the textbooks, according to Tobin.

Among the "outrageous misrepresentations" the study found was "a denial of the Jewish roots of Jesus," as when the textbook The World relates that "Christianity was started by a young Palestinian named Jesus."

"Textbooks include negative stereotypes of Jews, Judaism and Israel," the authors write. "For example, textbooks tend to discredit the ties between Jews and the land of Israel."

According to Tobin, "you're much more likely to learn about Jewish terrorism before the founding of Israel [in the textbooks] than about terrorism against Israel since that time."

Among the claims made about Israel in some of the textbooks are that Arab countries never initiated wars against Israel, Arab nations desire peace while Israel does not and that it was Israel that placed Palestinians in refugee camps in Arab lands, not Arab governments. No mention whatsoever was found relating to the hundreds of thousands of Jewish refugees from Arab countries who were forced out after the establishment of Israel.

In their treatment of Judaism, too, the textbooks showed a negative bias, according to the study. They often expressed a view that "Jews and Judaism are legalistic," and that "Jews care only about the letter of the law and ignore its spirit," the study found. The Jewish God is presented as "stern and warlike," and not compassionate, as is highlighted in other religions. In some instances, Jews are charged with deicide in the killing of Jesus.

The study also found that 18 textbooks used "unscholarly and disparaging 'Old Testament' terminology for the Jewish scriptures when discussing the origins of Judaism."

The study compared language used in describing Jewish and Christian belief with that describing Muslim belief. "The textbooks tend to be critical of Jews and Israel, disrespectful about Christianity, and rather than represent Islam in an objective way, tend to glorify it," says Ybarra.

"Textbook publishers often defer completely to Muslim groups for their content [on Islam] because they want to be sensitive to Muslim concerns," he explained. "So they write that Mohammed is a prophet of God, without the qualifier you should have in a public school that shows you're teaching about religion, rather than teaching religion."

One example among the many cited in the study is in World History: Continuity and Change, in which a glossary entry on the Ten Commandments describes them as "Moral laws Moses claimed to have received from the Hebrew God Yahweh on Mount Sinai."

The same glossary describes the Koran as a "Holy Book of Islam containing revelations received by Muhammad from God" - without a conditional qualifier.

"Islam is treated with a devotional tone in some textbooks, less detached and analytical than it ought to be," the study finds. "Muslim beliefs are described in several instances as fact, without any clear qualifier such as 'Muslims believe... .'

"No religion should be presented in history textbooks as absolute truth, either on its own or compared to any other, or they all should be."

"All in all, there are repeated misrepresentations that cross the line into bigotry," the authors write.

Full story
People ask me why am I so nervous and apprehensive these days. This isn't the 1930's and Germany. I point to things like this and try to explain. The Holocaust didn't start with Concentration Camps and Gas Chambers. It started with thing just like this. Making Jews seem to be evil and corrupt. This is exactly what was taught to German children in Nazi schools, and now is being taught to American children. The next step will be a very simple one. It will be the blaming of the nation's financial woes on the Jewish people. I can see that happening if Barack Hussein Obama becomes President. For our economy will take a couple of years to recover, and he is a very impatient person. Instead of taking the blame or coming up with a real solution, he will find an scapegoat and use it to his advantage.

The groundwork is being set as we speak. The next step will be taken if Obama becomes President. It is just a short leap from scapegoating a people to gassing them. And the world will do nothing but cheer.

AMERICA THE TARGET

By Mike Evans

(September 30) - On a September evening in 1980 in Tel Aviv, I sat with former Mossad chief Isser Harel for a conversation about Arab terrorism. As he handed me a cup of hot tea and a plate of cookies, I asked him, "Do you think terrorism will come to America, and if so, where and why?"

Harel looked at his American visitor and replied, "I fear it will come to you in America. America has the power, but not the will, to fight terrorism. The terrorists have the will, but not the power, to fight America - but all that could change with time. Arab oil money buys more than tents."

As to the where, Harel continued, "New York City is the symbol of freedom and capitalism. It's likely they will strike the Empire State Building, your tallest building [he mistakenly thought] and a symbol of your power."

With my Western mind-set I replied that America was dedicated to fighting terrorism. Harel smiled and said, "You kill a fly and you celebrate. We live with flies daily. One dies and 100 flies come to the funeral.

"If 'land for peace' happens," Harel continued, "I think it will mean America gets peace for a season, as the West pressures Israel into giving Arafat our land. But once you let the genie of appeasement out of the bottle, he will grow and eventually turn on you. In time America itself will be in the crosshairs.

"Hitler first killed Jews; then he killed Christians. Our culture and our democracies are the root of [the terrorists'] rage. If we're right, then they are wrong."

Twenty-one years later, the first part of Harel's prediction came true; except, of course, that the twin towers of the World Trade Center were much taller than the Empire State Building. However, it was the second part of his doomsday prediction that came true much earlier.

It was 1982 and Israel had declared its own war on terrorism by invading Lebanon to root out Arafat's terrorist infrastructure. I was summoned to New York by then prime minister Menachem Begin's aide, Reuven Hecht, for a meeting with Begin prior to his meeting with then president Ronald Reagan. Hecht had just met in Washington with then secretary of state Alexander Haig, who had told him that America had changed its mind: it would no longer support Israel's war against terrorism in Lebanon.

Begin was in shock. The West - whose planes had been blown out of the sky, its diplomats, soldiers, and civilians murdered by terrorists - was now fighting to save the primary organization responsible for these vile acts. In the end, American pressure prevailed and Arafat's 10,000 PLO terrorists, rifles in hand, were escorted out of Beirut to safe bases in Tunisia and other Arab lands. The cries of Israeli mothers whose sons had died in Lebanon and who stood outside his apartment screaming "Murderer!" were more than Begin could bear. He resigned a depressed and broken man.

Since then hundreds of Israeli civilians have been killed and thousands wounded by terrorists recruited, trained, and equipped in territory controlled by Arafat's Palestinian Authority. Osama bin Laden's cells operate in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, as does Hizbullah - all with Arafat's blessing.

Now that America has declared its own war against terrorism, Arafat has summoned the press to photograph him giving blood ostensibly for the victims of the attacks on America. Meanwhile, his Palestinian Police threatened journalists who filmed Palestinians dancing in the streets to celebrate the same attacks. All this supposedly in aid of encouraging Islamic states to join the anti-terrorism coalition.

Even Arafat's Hamas protégé has announced it is willing to suspend suicide attacks inside Israel "unless it is provoked." Can one imagine bin Laden saying "I will suspend suicide attacks against America unless I am provoked - now let me join the anti-terrorism coalition"?

Israel and America share the same democratic values that terrorists despise and seek to destroy. For Americans to think that Arafat, the godfather of Islamic terrorism, does not continue to support it is a prescription for more terror in America. A war on terrorism that categorizes some terror as good and some as bad is a guarantee of failure; a cruel spectacle in the theater of the absurd.

I pray this was a blessing to you. If you, or a friend, are not receiving my articles at no cost to you, please sign up today. Articles have been published in the Jerusalem Post, Wall Street Journal, Washington Times, USA Today, and newspapers worldwide.

From Monkey in the Middle:

The threat of terrorism in 1980 seemed distant to the US. Yet the Palestinians did celebrate in the streets, as you can see by these videos.

What is the response to these people? Give them what they want our leaders in the US cry. The time has come to say No! No more land for empty promises. And no Jerusalem. Not now, not ever.

This article was originally printed in the Jerusalem Post. It came to me from The Jerusalem Report and the Jerusalem Prayer Team. They have a on-line petition to prevent the city of Jerusalem from being cut in two again.

Flight 93: Paul Murdoch channels Allahpundit

Blogburst logo, petition

Two years ago Allahpundit (who works for Michelle Malkin) made a very strange judgment. He accepted that the original Crescent of Embrace design for the Flight 93 memorial pointed roughly to Mecca (to be exact, it points within 2 degrees of Mecca), but said that worrying about the orientation of the crescent reeked of "truther-iness."

"A good rule of thumb," said Allah:
if you need a protractor to properly express your outrage, you’ve probably gone too far.
Orientation on Mecca may sound esoteric, but it is certainly not esoteric to Muslims, who are supposed to face Mecca five times a day for prayer, and often carry special compasses for that purpose.

In particular, a crescent that Muslims face into to face Mecca is called a mihrab, and is the central feature around which every mosque is built. (Some mihrabs are pointed arch shaped, but the archetypical mihrab is crescent shaped.) This isn't merely suspicious, like learning to fly airliners without learning how to land. It is the discovered enemy objective: to stab a terrorist memorial mosque into the heartland of America .

How can anyone be surprised? As our blogburst logo shows, the original crescent design was a bare naked crescent and star flag. For Allah to dismiss ADDITIONAL Islamic symbol shapes as coincidence is like seeing the second airplane fly into the Trade Center and saying: "Well now it HAS to be an accident."

Allahpundit seems to have forgotten the defining quality of the 9-11 truth morons. It isn't that their claims seem esoteric or even outlandish. It is that their claims are FALSE, and in most cases are revealed by the simplest fact-checking to be blatantly dishonest as well. The truthers are self-conscious purveyors of malicious disinformation, a la Michael Moore.

In contrast, everything we are saying about the Flight 93 memorial is TRUE, and is easily verified to be true just by examining the official design drawings.

● The plans specify 44 translucent memorial blocks to be emplaced along the flight path, matching the number of passengers, crew AND terrorists. Just open up the design drawings and count. (The flight path symbolically breaks our harmonious circle according to architect Paul Murdoch, turning it into a giant crescent. Go figure.)

● The 93 foot Tower of Voices will be topped with yet another Islamic shaped crescent. Just look:
40 tortured souls, 60%

The symbolic lives of the 40 heroes literally dangle down below the symbolic Islamic heavens, projected against the sky above. Not a lot of different possible meanings here.

● The 9/11 date is to be inscribed on a separate section of Memorial Wall that is centered on the bisector of the giant crescent, which is the exact position of the star on an Islamic flag. The date goes to the terrorists.

● Etcetera ad nauseum, and architect Paul Murdoch proves that all of it is intentional by repeating every Islamic and terrorist memorializing feature in the Tower of Voices part of the memorial. (2 minute animation showing the repeated Mecca orientations here.)
How many airplanes have to hit the Flight 93 memorial before a few of our heavy hitters can admit that MAYBE it is not just an accident? Can we at least agree that the Park Service should be exposed for lying through their teeth about these facts?

If we could get word out to the public just about the Mecca orientation of the crescent, Murdoch's plot would probably be kaput, especially given the numerous denials the Memorial Project has issued in the last year and a half. But getting even the most basic facts out is terribly difficult when it isn't just the mainstream media that won't report the facts, but even people like Michelle Malkin are remaining silent, after taking a leading role in raising the initial alarm.

The loss of her powerful voice is hard enough, but there is also the seeming implication. Even the most internet savvy conservatives--the people we most need to reach to have any hope of stopping this--presume that if Michelle is not still objecting to the Flight 93 memorial, it must be okay now.

It is NOT okay. It is a thorough-going memorial to the terrorists. As Tom Burnett Sr. (father of Flight 93 hero Tom Burnett Jr.) keeps urging, we have to "do something," as his son got up and did something. We have to stop this re-hijacked Flight 93 before it reaches its destination.

If Michelle is going to hand such an important portfolio to Allah, doesn't he have an obligation to check a few facts before smearing fellow conservatives as truther-like? Allah and Michelle are good friends and much beloved for their excellent judgment and hard work. There is no anger here. Just an appeal for both to take another look. Paul Murdoch has even provided a fitting pretext, if any is needed.

In an interview two weeks ago, Murdoch re-labeled the tips of his crescent structure the same way that Allah proposed two years ago, yielding a more extended crescent that no longer points to Mecca. Murdoch is channeling you Allah, but where you were merely ignorant, he is being deceptive.

Where are the breaks in the circle?

In 2006, Allah posted a graphic from Alec Rawls that used orientation lines to show how the defining points of the Mecca-oriented crescent are unchanged in the Circle of Embrace redesign:


Allah's post of my Crescent-Bowl comparison

Original Crescent of Embrace design, left, points to Mecca . The flight path can be seen coming down from the upper left corner of the image, breaking the circle at the upper crescent tip.

Every particle of that original Crescent of Embrace design remains completely intact in the Circle of Embrace redesign. The original crescent tips are still there, yielding the same Mecca oriented crescent. Allah, however, suggested that the orientation of the crescent HAD been changed:

Alec's Crescent-Bowl comparison, with Allah's blue orientation lines.

In blue: Allahpundit's proposed orientation lines for the Circle of Embrace redesign.

If you don't know that the theme of the whole design is the flight path breaking the circle at the original upper crescent tip, and you don't notice that there is still a gap in the circle at the original upper crescent tip, you can get Allah's altered orientation for the Circle redesign, no longer pointing to Mecca .

Murdoch, of course, knows the theme of his own design (being the first one to articulate it publicly). Still, pretending that the breaks in the circle have been changed is a useful dodge, and Murdoch employed it the other week.

Asked if the circle in the Circle of Embrace redesign depicts a broken circle, as critics claim, Murdoch said that the circle breaks when it reaches the sacred ground:
The edge of the sacred ground “breaks” the circular perimeter of the bowl to give it the prominence it deserves as the focal point of the entire park and the final resting place of the 40 heroes.
The Sacred Ground is the yellow-colored area in the graphics above. By acknowledging only the break at the sacred ground, Murdoch is suggesting that the tips of the crescent come up to yellow area on both sides, just as Allah drew.

The Park service website, however, goes on to identify another break as well, the original break at the upper tip of the original crescent design, where the flight path crosses the circle:
The trees surrounding this "circle of embrace" are missing in two places; first, where the flight path of the plane went overhead (which is the location of the planned memorial overlook and visitor center), and second, where the plane crashed at the Sacred Ground (depicted by a ceremonial gate and pathway into the Sacred Ground). In summary, the memorial is shaped in a circular fashion, and the circle is symbolically "broken" or missing trees in two places, depicting the flight path of the plane, and the crash site...
In his interview, Murdoch does not just fail to mention the symbolic breaking of the circle at the original upper crescent tip, but offers an alternative description of the Entry Portal structure:
The entrance moves through the circular edge along the flight path, so as visitors enter they will be aligned with United Flight 93 through their own experience.
Sorry Murdoch, and Allah, but this passage through the original upper crescent tip does not just show the path of Flight 93. It explicitly symbolizes the flight path smashing our harmonious circle and turning it into the giant (Islamic shaped) crescent.

The flight path breaks the circle, 80%

Entry Portal walkway follows the flight path through the Entry Portal walls, symbolizing the breaking of the circle, according to the Park Service itself.

Allah's blue orientation lines are WRONG. The crescent is the unbroken part of the circle, which was not altered in the so-called redesign. All they did was add an extra arc of trees that explicitly represents a broken off part of the circle. Can Allah please post a correction?

It points to Washington

What made Allah throw up his hands was our further claim that the asymmetric crescent of memorial groves at the back of the full Crescent of Embrace points to the White House. But this too is TRUE, and if you look at Murdoch's plan, there is very clear reason for it.

Murdoch constantly provides proof that his possible Islamic and terrorist memorializing structure are intentional, often by repetition. The purpose of the White House orientation is to prove that his drawing of only 38 Memorial Groves, instead of the advertised 40, is not a mistake.

The giant crescent represents the symbolic Islamic heavens. Since the crescent of Memorial Groves is part of the full crescent, Murdoch cannot actually memorialize the 40 infidels there and still have a proper mosque. Thus Murdoch has to PROVE that the 38 groves are intended to memorialize someone else.

Notice that the 38 groves can be seen as a set of 19 nested crescents, ranging in length from 38 groves down to two. That is one for each 9/11 hijacker. How can this intent be proved? First, Murdoch proves intent by repetition. The Tower of Voices is also surrounded by a set of 19 nested crescents:

TowerCrescentsSmall

Paul Murdoch's detail view of the Tower of Voices .
Click for larger image.

The nested crescents of memorial groves establish the precedent that arcs of trees as short as two are to be counted as crescents. Using this rule, there are 19 nested crescents in the Tower array.

That is not enough proof for Murdoch, who provides redundant proof of intent for ALL of his Islamic and terrorist memorializing features. To provide additional proof that the 38 groves are to be seen as 19 nested crescents, Murdoch takes advantage of the fact that crescents have orientation, via either the bisector of the crescent, or by a line across the crescent tips. He positions his crescent of groves so that a line across the tips of any of the 19 nested crescents points to the White House:

Crash-SiteToWhiteHouse45%

19 nested crescents, all pointing to the target that the Flight 93 terrorists were trying to destroy.

The White House sits at about the "i" in Washington in this Yahoo map. The other possible target of Flight 93, the Capitol Building , is also nearby, but Higher resolution analysis suggests that the crescent tip line points closer to the White House.

Repeated symbolic damnation

Does anyone want to think that all this is coincidence too: the two missing groves, the White House orientation, the second set of 19 nested crescents in the Tower array? "Wow. A dozen airplanes flying into the Trade Towers . That's really got to be an accident now. That many airplanes just couldn’t be on purpose!"

No, what they can't be is an accident. Paul Murdoch is dead serious about proving that he has designed a proper terrorist memorial mosque. THAT is why the Memorial Groves point to the White House. And it isn’t just the Memorial Groves. EVERY depiction of the 40 heroes has an opposite hidden meaning, proved by repetition.

Those 40 wind chimes, one for each of the heroes, all literally dangling down below the symbolic Islamic heavens projected in the sky above? That’s symbolic damnation.

So too with the 40 blocks inscribed with the 40 names. All four of the “extra” translucent blocks on the flight path are located within the symbolic Islamic heavens. The three inscribed with the 9/11 date are inscribed as placed the star on the Islamic crescent and star flag, while the 44th sits at the upper crescent tip (where the flight path breaks the circle).

In contrast, the 40 blocks inscribed with the names of the heroes are all further down the flight path, down below the Islamic star and hence symbolically cast out of the symbolic Islamic heavens, which again implies damnation.

All of this has a very clear purpose. If the memorial actually honored the 40 infidels it could not be a proper mosque. According to the Koran (9.18), mosques are not to be defiled by infidel presence. Depictions of victory over the infidel are of course allowed.

Allahpundit is not the only one who thinks that TOO MANY suspicious features somehow imply coincidence. The Memorial Project says the exact same thing. They know that the Mecca orientation claim is accurate. They know that ALL of our factual claims are accurate and admit it in private conversation, but have decided that the very outlandishness of all somehow implies that it has to be coincidence.

Flight 93 is supposed to be the symbol of our woken vigilance. We are supposed to be alert now to the nature of the Islamic terrorists who are waging war against us: that they hide amongst us, pretending to be trustworthy friends. Have the truthers actually succeeded in stripping the nation of that lesson, making us loathe to witness evidence of conspiracy?

9/11 was one of the most elaborate conspiracies in history (by al Qaeda, not by the Bush administration). We can't just unlearn that lesson, and be blind to evidence of conspiracy in hopes of staying as far as possible from those who present phony evidence of conspiracy.

To make sense, one must follow the evidence wherever it leads. That is what the truthers DON'T do. The problem isn’t that they are pushing conspiracy theories, it is that they aren't honest. Ignoring the facts in an anti-conspiracy direction does not make one opposite to the truthers, but makes one similar, as Allah darn well ought to know.
