Ron Paul and ACLU Condemn Killing Of American-Born Hate Preacher Anwar Al-Awla

It looks like one of our Predator drones finally snagged  Islamist terror Imam Anwar al-Awlaki, along with Samir Khan of al-Qaeda's internet magazine "Inspire".  Both of them were born in the U.S. and were instrumental in inspiring others to jihad. Al-Awlaki's hate sermons were directly responsible for inspiring Major Nidal Malik Hasan (the Fort Hood Massacre) and the Christmas underwear bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab.

In spite of the fact that al-Awlaki was indirectly responsible for the deaths of innocent people, and won't be missed,  the condemnations are starting to roll in. And from sources as diverse as Ron Paul (there are actually people eager to vote for him in the 2012 presidential election!)  and the more obvious American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU). Paul called it an "assassination", the ACLU a 'dangerous' precedent-  I call it good fortune, and what took so long.

Of course, this isn't the first time the ACLU has criticized the fact we had al-Awlaki on our "kill or capture" list. In fact Anwar's father, Nasser, solicited the ACLU's help in trying to sue the government to take him off that list, to no avail.  Then again, daddy thought his son was a good "all-American boy" who would love nothing more than return to the U.S. I wonder if pops knew about his penchant for prostitutes.

Interviewed by CNN last year, the educated Yemeni doctor, was convinced his son was innocent and had nothing to do with al-Qaeda:
"He has been wrongly accused, it's unbelievable. He lived his life in America, he's an all-American boy. My son would love to go back to America, he used to have a good life in America. Now he's hiding in the mountains, he doesn't even have safe water to drink."

And when it was common knowledge that Anwar was hiding out somewhere in the southern part of Yemen, with his al-Qaeda cohorts,  papa al-Awlaki thought otherwise: 

"What do you expect my son to do? There are missiles raining down on the village. He has to hide. But he is not hiding with al Qaeda, our tribe is protecting him right now."

Although adamant about his son not associating with terrorists, nor being one, nor encouraging others to commit terrorist acts (in spite of proof to the contrary) he does concede that his attitude changed after being incarcerated in Yemen in 2006.

"They put him in jail for 18 months, and I detected a change after he got out of prison. He began to get away from the mainstream, he is a preacher. You cannot tie Anwar to acts of terrorism."

Has papa asked himself why his son was jailed for 18 months? And the further deluded dad seemed to think he could convince his son to give himself up:

Nasser said he would do his best to convince his son to surrender "but they are not giving me time, they want to kill my son. How can the American government kill one of their own citizens? This is a legal issue that needs to be answered."

Terrorism is far from a legal issue. Terrorists do not abide by any laws other than their own, and they happen to be cruel, barbaric and unjust. You lose your right to citizenship when you inspire others to commit acts of terror against your own country.

Good riddance to both of them.

U.S. Hikers Imprisoned In Iran Leftist Tools: Thank Hugo Chavez & Cindy Sheehan For Release

This is an interesting Wall Street Journal interview with James Kirchick, contributing editor at New Republic Magazine, about the two young American hikers (Shane Bauer and Josh Fattal) held as "Political Prisoners" in Iran for 2 years. Kirchick has some interesting notions about the young men based on some of their comments upon their release from prison, including comparing the U.S. with Iran, and thanking the usual lefty icons.
While neglecting to thank either President Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton for helping secure his freedom, Mr. Bauer expressed gratitude toward Hugo Chávez, Sean Penn, Noam Chomsky and Yusuf Islam (formerly Cat Stevens).
Read Kirchick's article here: Wall Street Journal article.

And let's not forget Cindy Sheehan, who along with Muhammad Ali (and others) also got kudos. You can read their full statement here

Muslims No Longer Allowed To Pray On Streets Of Paris

Well, it looks like the information on this video is definitely old since a ban on Muslims praying on the streets of Paris went  into effect last week.

Since France has the largest Muslim population in Western Europe (almost 10% of the French population, and estimated at close to 6 million) Muslims claimed there was not enough room in the mosques for adherents to pray, hence congregating on the streets.  To accomodate the 1,000 or so that have been hauling their prayer mats outdoors, the state will rent to several Paris mosques an empty fire brigade barracks capable of holding 2,000, at least until a new mosque is built.

Not that there's a dearth of mosques in France. As of 2010, there was an estimated 2,000 mosques, although many are supposedly small.  But the leader of the Grande Mosque of Paris would like that number to change- and, of course, built with state funds, which poses a problem in a secular state. I guess he figured that  since there are approximately 40,000 churches, and Muslims account for 10% (and growing) of the French populace, 4,000 would be a goodly number.

One French writer of algerian descent, Nabila Ramdani, balks at the French law that banned state funding of any religious establishment back in 1905.  According to Ramdani, 

The difference is: needs will increase exponentially; whereas Christians, Jews and others would not have as great a need for new space.  Frankly, in a secular nation,  no government monies should be spent on the building of any religious edifice. Let followers fund their own buildings.  That would solve that issue. If a country wants to remain secular, than it needs to stay out of religion.
"Other faiths, including Christians and Jews, all infringe the 1905 law, as they receive funding from the state. So there's no reason whatsoever why Muslims shouldn't enjoy the same kind of funding, even if the money is passed off as cultural money. They should have the same opportunities as other faiths."

Islam Takes Over Paris Streets- Video

Some of the information in this video is somewhat old, but it's a very good reminder of what is happening in France, and what could happen in other nations that are too afraid to oppose Muslim imperialism and thuggery. 

This could happen anywhere in the West, not just on the streets of Paris. Pray in your churches, mosques, temples and synagogues, but not on the streets. Not only is it an imposition on others, it's dangerous to clog the streets up in such a manner.

UPDATE: Paris banned prayer in the streets September, 2011

Sharia for Libya- Arab World Not Ready For Democracy

I'd like to think that the Arab world is civilized enough for democracy, but it is becoming increasingly clear that this is not the case.  At least democracy in the true sense of the word.

What the West has been touting as the "Arab Spring" - revolutions that have toppled regimes in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya- is turning out to be nothing more than a re-awakening of racist, Islamist sentiments in the citizenry and leadership of some of those countries. Rather than embracing the  freedom and equality  that is part and parcel of  democracies, countries like Libya and Egypt are taking a step backwards.

Take Mustafa Abdel Jalil, interim head of Libya's National Transitional Council, who has said that although the new government will not tolerate "extremist ideology": In other words, Libya will become an Islamic state. Sharia Law is most definitely extreme, and lacks any of the fundamentals of equality, as much as Muslims like to claim otherwise. And any country that has Sharia as its rule of law, in no way qualifies to be called a democracy.  Then there are the  allegations of racism  by the so-called rebel liberators of Libya.  Apparently, they have been trying to purge Libya of the black Africans, and as a result have been arresting and murdering them. They deny it, but according to human rights organizations, there is plenty of proof. However, the hatred is definitely there, whether true or not.  According to one rebel "Libyan people don't like people with dark skins." They also don't like Jews, evident in the anti-Semitic cartoons of Gaddafi.
"We seek a state of law, prosperity and one where sharia is the main source for legislation, and this requires many things and conditions."  

And I don't hold much hope for Egypt, as far as Sharia goes, if the Muslim Brotherhood gets its grips on the leadership of that country. And one of the few Middle Eastern lands that was a quasi- friend to Israel is now hurtling in the opposite direction. The current military dictatorship has no love for Israel, and that doesn't seem likely to change.  In fact, Arab Muslim journalist Khaled Abu Toameh, partially blames the government for inciting the recent mob attack on the Israeli Embassy.  According to Toameh, several days before the rampage, 23-year-old  Ahmed al-Shahat climbed 20 floors to the Israeli Embassy and removed its flag.  Rather than punishing the young man, he was honored for his "courageous" deed, and given both a job and an apartment. This, Toameh believes, was more than likely the catalyst for storming the Embassy- individuals hoping to get their praise and piece of the cake in a country with high unemployment.  He fears that it will only encourage more violence.

I'm sure there are some in that region who might possibly possess the intellectual means to embrace freedom and democracy, but I think the vast majority don't and probably never will.

Jimmy Carter Supports Palestinian Statehood Bid From U.N.

I have always maintained that former President Jimmy Carter was a flaming anti-Semite, and his latest antics continue to confirm that opinion. Not only was he useless as President (the worst in U.S. history, followed closely by Barack Obama) he's even more so now as an ex-leader of the free world. He just can't seem to keep his mouth shut on issues he obviously has no clue about, and  no right meddling in. Like the Palestinian pursuit of statehood recognition through the United Nations.

In Atlanta on Tuesday, Jimmy said he fully supports Palestine's bid for statehood, in spite of the fact that this could jeopardize Israel's security, considering the recent events in Egypt  and the strained relations with Turkey.

"As an alternative to a deadlock and a stalemate now, we reluctantly support the Palestinian move for recognition."

Carter claims that had Obama "put forward any sort of comprehensive peace proposal" he would not approve of the current efforts for U.N. recognition.  But no-one has managed to do that, including Carter himself, because the majority of Palestinians simply don't want peace, they just want Israel to go away.  And until Western leaders accept that fact, they will continue to fail at bringing peace to that region.  He also foolishly doesn't seem to think that troubles with Turkey and Syria pose any problems to Israel:

"The Arab spring has brought hope for democracy and freedom to many of the people in the region ... and I hope that eventually it will potentially bring about a change in the prospects of a peace agreement to be negotiated between Israel and its neighbors," he said. "But it would require Israel to withdraw from the occupied territories and that's something that so far the Israeli government has been unable to do."
Dream on! 

There will never be peace until Hamas changes its charter that clearly states:  "Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it."

There will never be peace until the Palestinians put down their arms, stop attacking Israel and start teaching their children to love life  more than martyrdom.

As Golda Meir so aptly put it:

"We will have peace with the Arabs when they love their children more than they hate us”.

Wednesday, September 14, 2011 : Big Brother Obama's Campaign Creates Snitch Website

Cuba has its neighbourhood snitches, now Barack Obama's campaign has created, a website that will allow Obama lovers to report links and comments that are deemed attacks on his fiscal and foreign policy, Israel and jobs, whether true or not.  Oh, and there's a link especially for the GOP. 

Their rationale for creating this:

The smears didn’t end with the 2008 election. President Obama’s opponents are still using false allegations against the President and his record in an attempt to derail the momentum of this movement.

That’s why we’re launching Attack Watch—to provide a hub for the facts and fight back with the truth.

But we can’t do it alone. We need your help to render these attacks ineffective and expose them as the worst kind of politics. There are lots of ways to get involved: join our Attack Wire to stay up to date on the latest from our opponents, help spread the President’s message by signing up to volunteer, or donate to support this site and the campaign as a whole.

Check this news feed for updates in the coming weeks, and be sure to follow @AttackWatch on Twitter for breaking news as it happens.
I find it all rather chilling, and somewhat pathetic. Of course, this is nothing new. Back on his first go-round he established his other snitch-site

Misfitpolitics takes a stab at the whole issue in the following video.

10th Anniversary Of 9/11- We Must Never Forget


It's hard to believe that ten years have passed since that infamous day on September 11, 2001, when the world changed forever.  It also amazes me that there are those who would like the rest of us to forget that 3,000 plus people were murdered in the name of religion.  Worse yet, there are the fools who still believe in the ludicrous notion that it was actually some major, nefarious government conspiracy that was at the root of 9/11.  Sadly, I personally know both of these types, seemingly intelligent people who obviously have no mental capacity to discern truth from fiction.  

The past few days I  noticed people posting certain comments and linking to articles on FaceBook that took me completely by surprise.  I realize that most of my colleagues in the entertainment industry are die-hard liberals, but I had no clue that some of them were  delusional '9/11 Truthers'; 'friends' who actually believe that 'al Qaeda' is a "fictional enemy created by the Bush administration  to justify the 'war on terror'."  And they're not alone. There are many who share those paranoiac beliefs.   Those same people believe Osama Bin Laden was killed years ago, and that his death was kept secret for various reasons that make no sense. In fact, none of their theories make sense, but still people are drawn towards the conspiracy conceit.

As for those who would like to 'forget', I remind them of the George Santayana quote:
 "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it".
There are certain historical events that should never be forgotten, and 9/11 happens to be one of those. When we forget, we become complacent, when we become complacent, history can and will repeat itself.  Never forget!

What Fuels Barack Obama's Anti-Israel Policies

I have never cottoned to the idea that Obama is a secret Muslim masquerading as a Christian. Other than the fact that his step-father was a Muslim, there is no proof that he, himself, is one. However, I do firmly believe that he has strong Muslim sympathies which directly influence how he views Israel, and therefore his policy towards that country. So, I found the following article written by E. W. Jackson, Sr. - a retired lawyer and current Bishop of Exodus Faith Ministries- very interesting, especially considering he is a black man. It's apparently a few years old, but I just received it via email. 

He eloquently and succinctly explains just how and why Obama is decidedly anti-Israel, and is a very interesting read.

E. W. Jackson Sr.:
Why Obama is Opposed to Israel

Like Barack Hussein Obama II, I am a graduate of Harvard Law School. I too have Muslims in my family. I am black, and I was once a leftist Democrat. Since our backgrounds are somewhat similar, I perceive something in Obama's policy toward Israel which people without that background may not see. All my life I have witnessed a strain of anti-Semitism in the black community. It has been fueled by the rise of the Nation of Islam and Louis Farrakhan, but it predates that organization.

We heard it in Jesse Jackson's “HYMIE town” remark years ago during his presidential campaign. We heard it most recently in Jeremiah Wright's remark about “them Jews” not allowing Obama to speak with him. I hear it from my own Muslim family members who see the problem in the Middle East as a “Jew” problem.

Growing up in a small, predominantly black urban community in Pennsylvania , I heard the comments about Jewish shop owners. They were “greedy cheaters” who could not be trusted, according to my family and others in the neighborhood. I was too young to understand what it means to be Jewish, or know that I was hearing anti-Semitism. These people seemed nice enough to me, but others said they were “evil”. Sadly, this bigotry has yet to be eradicated from the black community.

In Chicago, the anti-Jewish sentiment among black people is even more pronounced because of the direct influence of Farrakhan and the Nation of Islam. Most African Americans are not followers of “The Nation”, but many have a quiet respect for its leader because, they say, “he speaks the truth” and “stands up for the black man”. What they mean of course is that he viciously attacks the perceived “enemies” of the black community – white people and Jews. Even some self-described Christians buy into his demagoguery.

The question is whether Obama, given his Muslim roots and experience in Farrakhan's Chicago, shares this antipathy for Israel and Jewish people. Is there any evidence that he does? First, the President was taught for twenty years by a virulent anti-Semite, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright. In the black community it is called “sitting under”. You don't merely attend a church, you “sit under” a Pastor to be taught and mentored by him. Obama “sat under” Wright for a very long time. He was comfortable enough with Farrakhan – Wright's friend – to attend and help organize his “Million Man March”. I was on C-Span the morning of the march arguing that we must never legitimize a racist and anti-Semite, no matter what “good” he claims to be doing. Yet a future President was in the crowd giving Farrakhan his enthusiastic support.

The classic left wing view is that Israel is the oppressive occupier, and the Palestinians are Israel's victims. Obama is clearly sympathetic to this view. In speaking to the “Muslim World, “he did not address the widespread Islamic hatred of Jews. Instead he attacked Israel over the growth of West Bank settlements. Surely he knows that settlements are not the crux of the problem. The absolute refusal of the Palestinians to accept Israel's right to exist as a Jewish state is the insurmountable obstacle. That's where the pressure needs to be placed, but this President sees it differently. He also made the preposterous comparison of the Holocaust to Palestinian “dislocation”.

Obama clearly has Muslim sensibilities. He sees the world and Israel from a Muslim perspective. His construct of “The Muslim World” is unique in modern diplomacy. It is said that only The Muslim Brotherhood and other radical elements of the religion use that concept. It is a call to unify Muslims around the world. It is rather odd to hear an American President use it. In doing so he reveals more about his thinking than he intends. The dramatic policy reversal of joining the unrelentingly anti-Semitic, anti-Israel and pro-Islamic UN Human Rights Council is in keeping with the President's truest – albeit undeclared red – sensibilities

Those who are paying attention and thinking about these issues do not find it unreasonable to consider that President Obama is influenced by a strain of anti-Semitism picked up from the black community, his leftist friends and colleagues, his Muslim associations and his long period of mentor-ship under Jeremiah Wright.. If this conclusion is accurate, Israel has some dark days ahead. For the first time in her history, she may find the President of the United States siding with her enemies. Those who believe, as I do, that Israel must be protected had better be ready for the fight. We are.
Indeed, never again!

UK Islamic Extremist Gets Rent-Free Luxury Flat and £1,250 Per Month In Benefits

England's nanny state continues to support certain individuals who have no right being taken care of, so it's no wonder the country is flat broke and full of extremists.  Take middle class 28-year-old Rich Dart, an unemployed former BBC security guard, who is living in  a nice cushy  £1,000 luxury 2- bedroom apartment (worth £300,0000) along with a job-seekers allowance of  £64-a-week, and other benefits totalling £1,256 every month, all courtesy of the other hard-working British taxpayers.

If that's not bad enough, he also happens to be a recent convert to Islam and is one of those who, in spite of leaching off of his fellow taxpayers, loves to preach hate against the country that pays all of his bills.  So, in essence, the government is actually paying this man to radicalize other English youth. And he's doing a good job of it enabled by a government system that makes it more profitable to stay on the dole than to get back into the work force.  Rich or Salahuddin as he now calls himself, has a designer kitchen, a rooftop garden that cost a fortune that he has access to, but had the gall to complain about his lovely digs:  'It's quite luxurious compared with other ones, but you're crammed in like sardines and I can hear my neighbour coming and going. I don't enjoy living among non-Muslims. Under Islam things would be much better. You could have a detached bungalow for each wife, maybe four bungalows if you had four wives. I have to live here - and it's very hard to have four wives.'

Of course, he and his four wives would also be supported by the British government.  But, apparently he has no wives yet, so he spends his time at extremist rallies preaching about the wonders of Sharia law. "When the Taliban defeat the allies we will establish Sharia law and take the fight to the enemy."

Because he has so much free time, Rich has been instrumental in recruiting other white middle-class chaps into the bowels of extremism, and is often on the streets preaching against the West and for establishing a 'global Islamic state'.  As long as the British government continues to suffer the likes of people like Rich 'Salahuddin'  Dart, and continues to enable them by providing them the opportunity and platform to radicalize others, England is doomed.
