Mohammad Most Common Name For Males In Oslo, Norway

Apparently, the most popular name for males in Oslo, Norway is ..... Mohammad. And Jørgen Ouren of Statistics Norway is very excited about that.

And for the last four years, Mohammad surpassed Jan and Per in popularity.

As of 2013,  8.4% of the population in Oslo is Muslim, or 2.4% of the Norwegian population. There are over 150,000 Muslims now living in Norway, most of them from Iraq, Morocco, Pakistan and Somalia.

Back in 2009, Mohammad ranked tops for UK baby boys.

Saudi King Claims Islamic State Will Reach Europe and The U.S. Within Months

You have to wonder why Saudi King Abdullah, leader of one of the most intolerant, bigoted and repressive nations in the world, is suddenly warning the West that The Islamic State (aka ISIS) is making its way to Europe and the U.S.

“If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month.
“Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East. […] It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: ‘Fight terrorism with force, reason and speed.’”
Ironic, especially in light of the fact that Saudi Arabia along with Qatar have been instrumental  in the rise of ISIS and ISIL, and that so many terrorists (including Osama Bin Laden himself) hail from the Kingdom. So what is he (and other Arab Nations) willing to do to help eradicate ISIS?

But he could be right about ISIS spreading globally. Although the feds have denied it, it seems that The Islamic State has gathered in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, and jihadists are poised to attack the U.S., at least according to Judicial Watch.

The way ISIS governs is really no different than the way Saudi's do- the royal family is probably  just afraid they'll be ousted.

Boycott Israel Hits Brazilian Art Scene

Looks like the Boycott Israel movement has hit Brazil. ISIS is spreading like cancer, bringing with it death and destruction, but artists in Sao Paulo, Brazil, are more concerned about dissing Israel which engaged in a war (not genocide) to protect its citizens. And those citizens don't happen to be only Jews.

Apparently, the Israeli consulate in Sao Paolo donated $40,000 to the 31st Art Biennial- as sponsors- and over 50 artists are demanding that the money be returned.

The biennial, which started in 1951 and is the second oldest art biennial in the world after Venice, dating back to 1895, is scheduled to open its doors next Saturday.


An artist from Ramallah, Ruanne Abou-Rahme, due to exhibit at the show with fellow Palestinian Basel Abbas, was among some 60 signatories to an open letter to organizers, prompting Globo daily Saturday to dub the event the "Biennial of conflict."

Three Israeli artists are set to feature with around 70 participants in total at this year's event. The exhibition's website shows the Israeli consulate, which could not be reached for comment Saturday, as a sponsor.

The Consul-general Yoel Barnea said:

"We are democratic -- there are different points of view in our country," said Barnea, adding he did not want to see culture and politics mix. He insisted the sponsorship would not be withdrawn and that he planned to attend the show.
There was no word as to whether the artists would actually boycott.

Is it so hard to keep politics out of the arts and sports?

London Has 100s Of Jihadis- Terror Alert Raised To "Severe"

Hate preachers, the likes of Anjem Choudary, have been allowed to roam freely in the UK- many of them living on the dole, including Choudary- courtesy of the British taxpayer.  And these haters have many followers who have been radicalized under the noses of the Brit authorities. They would love nothing more than to turn England into a Sharia-compliant nation, and quite a few have made their way to Syria and Iraq to fight for ISIS, ISIL, al-Nusra Front and the plethora of other terrorist Islamic jihadists fighting in that region.

Many of them have made their way back to England, further radicalized, and now the Brits are very worried. Scotland Yard believes there are around 200 or so potential terrorists running around London.

Scotland Yard chief Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe today called for a major overhaul of Britain’s counter-terrorism powers as he warned that close to 200 potentially “militarised” fighters returning from Iraq and Syria are already in London.

The Met Commissioner said urgent action is needed because of the growing threat and the risk of a further rapid influx of dangerous militants into the capital as the battle with Islamic State escalates. He called on ministers to respond by considering the return of control orders and new legislation to strip British fighters of their passports to stop them coming back to this country.

Sir Bernard said there should be an automatic legal presumption that anyone returning from Syria or Iraq had been engaged in terrorism and he requested a major injection of extra funding to help police and intelligence agencies cope with the rise in terror suspects.
No wonder they've raised the terror threat to "severe,"

More on the situation here.

Rotherham Dads Arrested After Tracking Down Muslim Child Rapists

Alexis Jay's report on the Rotherham child sex abuse scandal claims that two dad's who tracked down their daughters to houses where they were being abused were arrested instead.

 “In two of the cases, fathers tracked down their daughters and tried to remove them from houses where they were being abused, only to be arrested themselves when police were called to the scene.
“In a small number of cases, the victims themselves were arrested for offences such as breach of the peace or being drunk and disorderly, with no action taken against the perpetrators of rape and sexual assault against children.”
Very few people were successfully prosecuted for the 1400 or so child rapes.  Five to date.

 “The courage required of children to give evidence against their attackers has been rightly commended, but the challenges cannot be underestimated.

“Many children refused to give evidence, or withdrew statements as a direct result of threats, intimidation and assaults against them or their families.

“Overall, the small number of prosecutions is disproportionate to the numbers of children abused and the seriousness of the offences committed against them.”

Shameful. And all because they were afraid of being called racists, or what they really mean by that- Islamophobes.

ISIS Leader Al-Baghdadi Is A Jew/ Mossad Agent- Conspiracy Theory of the Day

YouTube is such a source of entertainment.

Here's another hoot of a conspiracy theory.  Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the self proclaimed Caliph of the Islamic State, is actually a Jew, Elliot Shimon, trained by Israel's Mossad, in cahoots with the UK, the US and Israel to create a greater Israel, which would include parts of Egypt, Syria, Iraq, Turkey, Jordan, Saudi Arabia.  In other words, the Brits, Americans and Israelis actually created the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) to accomplish that goal. 

Oh, and traitor Edward Snowden is allegedly the source of this information.

And there's this video, courtesy of Technology Unlimited News. Obviously one of the many False Flag, Conspiracy Theory lunatic groups living in the US.

Our Leaders And Celebs Are Reptilian Aliens- Video Joke of The Day

So what do Barack Obama, Hitler, Hillary and Bill Clinton, the British royal family, Gerald Ford, Robert Duchovny have in common? According to some conspiracy theorists, they're all (along with a slew of others) Illuminati, shape-shifting, Reptilian aliens who perform rituals where they sacrifice and drink the blood and eat the flesh of children that are kidnapped from foreign lands. This, according to some wacky woman who was interviewed by some equally wacky British guy, is a means of keeping their human skin intact. The woman claims to have witnessed a bunch of people, including Hillary Clinton and the Queen Mother, shapeshift. They don't discuss, however, how she lived to tell the tale.

The video also has a compilation of highly pixelated photos and videos as alleged proof of famous people who they believe to be alien beings.

Plenty of people commenting on the YouTube video have similar wacky beliefs.

For your enjoyment, 24 minutes of some very bizarre stuff.

Video here.

The guy who posted the video had this to say:

They are among us. Blood-drinking, flesh-eating, shape-shifting extraterrestrial reptilian humanoids with only one objective in their cold-blooded little heads: to enslave the human race. They are our leaders, our corporate executives, our beloved Oscar-winning actors and Grammy-winning singers, and they're responsible for the Holocaust, the Oklahoma City bombings and the 9/11 attacks. Well Maybe...

This is perfect fodder for a sci-fi movie.

Scariest thing is people actually do believe this shite, and they're walking amongst us.

Race Played Part In Rotherham Sex Abuse Scandal, Muslims Outraged

Remember the Rotherham sex abuse scandal?  Where 1,400 white girls- in a town of 250,00- including some as young as 12,  were groomed and sexually exploited by mainly Pakistani Muslim males?  This had been going on for 16 years (between 1997 and 2103) and there are now reports that the authorities did little about it because they were afraid of being called racists. Only five men were convicted in 2010, with jail terms ranging from a mere 4 to 9 years, even though it turns out many more were not investigated or prosecuted.  In other words, it was far more widespread than officials were willing to admit- because the "crimes had 'cultural characteristics...which are locally sensitive in terms of diversity'"

Woah, so does this mean that because they believe some ethnic groups find it "culturally" okay to rape young girls, nothing should be done about it in the name of diversity? They didn't want to ruffle feathers?

Well, apparently the Pakistani community is outraged, and rightfully so.

Muhbeen Hussain, founder of Rotherham Muslim Youth Group, told the Daily Mirror on Wednesday that Muslims are disgusted that justice was not done — leading to some 1,400 children being sexually exploited over a 16-year period, mostly by Pakistani men.
"Race, religion or political correctness should never provide a cloak of invisibility to such grotesque crimes."
The woman who released the report, Alexis Jay, claims it's a global problem:

"..demand for this kind of sexual activity with children is on the increase and that is validated across not just the UK but Europe and worldwide."

And it's not just Muslims, though one would think that since Muslims hold themselves to a higher moral authority there would be fewer cases involving child sex abuse.

Javed Khan, head of a children's organization dealing with vulnerable kids, had this to say:

"No one should ever be frightened to act decisively because of fear of being seen as racist or politically incorrect."
That's all well and good, however, if the U.K. is anything like the U.S., organizations like the Council on American-Islamic Relations have forced people to say and do nothing for fear of being labeled racists or Islamophobes.

They should be outraged, not just by the inaction of Rotherham officials, but the fact that there are so many members of their community who are pedophiles.  But it's another good start.

Singer Bryan Adams Proud Israel Hater

You can add Canadian rocker Bryan Adams to the list of  I hate Israel celebs, and his Twitter supporters are ecstatic.

On August 9 he wrote:
Bryan Adams @bryanadams · Aug 9
Mr. Prime Minister, @pmharper, The UK PM is sending 20M in aid to #Gaza. Where is Canada's support for the Palestinian people? #gazachildren
Adams responded with the following after several people questioned whose side he was on, although it's kind of obvious.

Bryan Adams ✔ @bryanadams
@southernstacy @SoulM8dSunshine I can't speak for others, I only speak for myself: I say the war against Gaza was a crime against humanity

And then this to the same two when they questioned him about the three young Israelis who were killed in the West Bank- which was one of the mitigating factors in Israel's was with Gaza:

Bryan Adams ✔ @bryanadamsFollow@southernstacy @SoulM8dSunshine it was never proved who was responsible, and it's not justification for murdering 2000+ people...541 kids.

Then referring to the blockade.

Bryan Adams ✔ @bryanadamsFollow@southernstacy @SoulM8dSunshine ..and the Israeli blockade of #Gaza just entered its 8th year, leaving its 1.7 million inhabitants destitute7:06 PM - 19 Aug 2014
No mention of Egypt's blockade.  I tweeted him about that, and asked if he has opined about the genocide in Iraq and Syria by ISIS. No response.

Then there's the self-loathing Jew piping in with her support.

Chavaleh @ChavaBallFollow@bryanadams thank u so much for speaking out for Gaza and Palestine! I'm Jewish and we MUST speak out agnst Israeli war crimes! #freegaza7:32 AM - 24 Aug 2014
War crimes?  Why aren't these people crying out about what's happening to thousands of Yazidis, Christians and other Muslim minorities in Iraq and elsewhere.

The fools just don't get it.

No Burkinis Allowed In Some Moroccan Resort Private Pools

Wow. This is pretty darn amazing.  Several private resorts in Marrakesh, Morocco are banning burkinis in the private pools. You know those bathing suits that cover pretty much everything other than a woman's face.  They claim "hygiene reasons", and only your run-of-the-mill bathing suits are allowed.

Mazagan Beach and Golf Resort in al-Jadida near Casablanca is one of those hotels that is banning burkinis and requiring "ordinary swimsuits."

Of course, it's not sitting well with some in that country.

Abdelaziz Aftati, an MP of the ruling Moderate Islamist Justice and Development Party, sent a complaint to Tourism Minister Lahcen Haddad, after a woman wearing a burkini was reportedly banned from a swimming pool in al-Jadida, according to Morocco World News.
Aftati told the press that it is unacceptable to restrict people’s freedom and their beliefs, saying the move signified the “rudeness of the new colonization.”

A little like Islamists and fundamentalists requiring women to wear hijab, or burqas in certain countries in that region? Typical double standards of conservative Muslims.

And, of course, if that happened in this country, you'd have CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) on the case in a snap. There would be threats of law suits and people would cave.

I hope the resorts stay firm.

"Jihadi John" -James Foley's Beheader- Is Son Of Egyptian Terrorist On Trial In US

"Jihadi John", former rapper "L. Jinny" and the animal suspected of beheading journalist James Foley, is the son of  54-year-old Egyptian lawyer Adel Abdel Bary whose terrorism trial in New York is set to commence on November 3rd. He's standing trial for the 1998 American Embassy bombings in Tanzania and Kenya. 224 people lost their lives and over 4,000 were injured on August 7th- Americans and Africans. Bary had apparently been sitting in a UK prison since 1999 until he was extradited in 2012. Papa must be spitting mad that his son is following in his footsteps, considering Bary's lawyers are already worried that all this terrorism activity might adversely effect the outcome of his trial.

Abdel Abdul Bary’s lawyers say in order for him to receive a fair trial in New York, sensational references to terrorism must be eliminated from his case.
But that was before his son was named in reports by British newspapers as among those being looked at by investigators in the beheading of journalist James Foley.

Abu Anas al-Libi, who is also facing terrorism charges in N.Y. in connection with the 1998 bombings, had been free until he was nabbed in Libya last year.  Bary's lawyers want separate trials.

They warned that no amount of instructions to a jury “can erase from the minds of jurors the acts of Muslim-associated terrorism that took place” while Bary was detained and al-Libi was free.
“In the charged atmosphere of post 9/11 New York, in the shadow of the New Freedom Tower that by its grace only serves to highlight the absence of the twin towers, Mr. Bary would be substantially prejudiced by a joint trial” with al-Libi, the lawyers said.
Tough luck.

Now his son- 24-year-old Abdel-Majed Abdel Bary- is being investigated for beheading James Foley. But Foley isn't his first one.

 Earlier this year, he posted a picture of himself holding a severed head on Twitter after resurfacing in Syria, the Independent newspaper reported.
He had captioned the picture with: “Chillin' with my other homie, or what's left of him.”

His father was a lawyer-cum-terrorist, he lived in his parent's $1.7 million London home in affluent Maida Vale (though in his music he talks about his early life living in council flats), and he winds up fighting in Syria with some of the most barbaric Muslim militants the world has seen- ISIS.

The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, as they say.

More on Jihadi John, and his music and pre-jihadi life.

Muslims Rally In Norway Against ISIS

Thousands of Muslims rallied in Oslo, Norway, against Islamic State extremists.

Norway’s prime minister and other politicians have joined Muslim leaders and thousands of other people for a demonstration in Oslo against radical Islamists.

Monday’s rally was an initiative by young Norwegian Muslims who wanted to show a united front against Islamic State militants in Syria and Iraq and their sympathizers in Norway.

Mehtab Afshar, head of the Islamic Council in Norway, told the crowd: “They stand for terrorism, they stand for terror ... and we condemn that in the strongest terms.”
The Muslims were joined by Norway's Prime Minister.

It's a start. But more Muslims in other countries need to be doing this.

Hollywood Stars Sign Pro-Israel Statement Condemning Hamas

The Boycott Israel (BDS) movement has its celebrities including Emma Thompson, Danny Glover, Roger Waters, Russell Brand, Stephen Hawking, Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem, Alice Walker and a slew of others. Some have just bowed to the pressure of BDSers and cancelled appearances and visits to Israel, others have signed petitions and actively condemned Israel for doing what it has every right to do- defend its citizens from Hamas aggression and violence.

Cruz and Bardem recently signed a letter condemning Israel, calling what was happening in Gaza genocide, now some pro-Israel celebs have signed their own statement calling for an end to "singling out" Israel.

Among those almost 200 Hollywood stars and execs signing the statement were Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Seth Rogen, Sherry Lansing and:

 Sarah Silverman, Minnie Driver, Ziggy Marley, Kelsey Grammer, Tom Arnold, Benji Madden, director Ivan Reitman, writer Aaron Sorkin, producer Michael Rotenberg, composer Michael Nyman, producer Haim Saban, Justin Bieber’s manager Scooter Braun.

Initiated by the Creative Community For Peace (CCFP) the petition condemns Hamas for its "ideologies of hatred", as well as efforts to boycott Israel.

The full Statement:

We, the undersigned, are saddened by the devastating loss of life endured by Israelis and Palestinians in Gaza. We are pained by the suffering on both sides of the conflict and hope for a solution that brings peace to the region.

While we stand firm in our commitment to peace and justice, we must also stand firm against ideologies of hatred and genocide which are reflected in Hamas’ charter, Article 7 of which reads, “There is a Jew hiding behind me, come on and kill him!” The son of a Hamas founder has also commented about the true nature of Hamas.

Hamas cannot be allowed to rain rockets on Israeli cities, nor can it be allowed to hold its own people hostage. Hospitals are for healing, not for hiding weapons. Schools are for learning, not for launching missiles. Children are our hope, not our human shields.

We join together in support of the democratic values we all cherish and in the hope that the healing and transformative power of the arts can be used to build bridges of peace.

Good for them. It's about time. But check out the comments on the link below.  Anti-Semitism is alive and well in the USA.

TN Student Suspended For Telling Classmate "Bless You" After Sneeze

Tennessee high school student Kendra Turner claims she was suspended for telling a classmate "bless you" after they sneezed. According to the Dyer County High School student certain phrases and words have been banned by her computer teacher-  "stupid", "my bad", "hang out", and the offending phrase "bless you" are verboten.

Believing her consitutionatl rights were violated, she took to social media to share what happened. Apparently, the teacher told her "We do not do Godly speaking in my class." As far as I know she left God out of it. Simply saying "bless you" shouldn't be offensive, unless you're a liberal or atheist or both.

"I stood up for my belief and said I have a constitutional right to speak about My God!!" the teen wrote on Facebook.
"So if any other teacher wants to get on to me for sticking up for my religion then go right ahead [because] in the end I will win [because] I'm doing what God wants me to do!!!"

Though they won't get into it, the school administration says it has nothing to do with religion.

"We can't discuss discipline issues because of right to privacy of students, but I can say there are two sides to every story," Assistant Principal Lynn Garner told the Dyersburg State Gazette.
"Sometimes people spin things and turn them to make them seem one way, but I cannot discuss anything specific in order to protect the child."
Fox news said the teacher claims the girl shouted "bless you" and disrupted class. She might have, who knows, but bottom line, what right does a teacher have to tell someone what they can or can not say?

More details here.

Brit ISIS Jihadi Wants To Be First Woman To Behead Someone From US or UK

Although her Twitter account has since been suspended, 22-year-old British Muslim convert Khadijah Dare (Twitter handle "Muhajira fi Sham" @Ash_Shamiyyah), tweeted a photo of some believe to be her young son holding a rifle, along with her desire to become the first female to behead someone from the US or UK.

 “Muhajirah fi Sham” which means “immigrant in Syria” posted her life's goal after the beheading video of journalist James Foley surfaced.

Any links 4 da execution of da journalist plz. Allahu Akbar. UK must b shaking up haha. I wna b da 1st UK woman 2 kill a UK or US terorrist!

— muhajirah fi Sham (@Ash_Shamiyyah) August 20, 2014

Although it has not been confirmed, Muhajirah fi Sham is believed to be Dare.

She converted to Islam as a teenager and it’s believed she regularly attended the Lewisham Islamic Centre linked to Michael Adebolajo and Michael Adebowale, the pair who attacked Drummer Lee Rigby with a knife in broad daylight in a London Street.

Her Twitter feed contains a shocking combination of news, quotes and ISIS-style extremism, combined with pictures of nature and tips on raising children.

Earlier this year she wrote: “All da people back in Dar ul kufr [land of disbelievers] what are you waiting for ... hurry up and join da caravan to where the laws of Allah is implemented,” The Telegraph reports.

Before being bumped off Twitter, she switched to private.

Any journalists or kufar who follow me will b nicely blocked. I hav no tym 4 arguments wit da ignorant. [4]

Truth of the day Graphic: Muslims And Rights

Sad, but true.

"In every country that Muslims are a minority, they are obsessed with minority rights.In every country with a Muslim majority, there are NO minority rights."

And in the case of Iraq, they are systematically being wiped out.  Including the 'wrong kind' of Muslim.

Do All Native Americans Consider "Redskins" A Racial Slur?

What's in a name? Apparently a lot, at least when it comes to the pro football team the Washington Redskins. Some 80 plus years later and people are now raging about how racist the name 'Redskins' is.

Apparently, the owner George Preston Marshall- who named the team Redskins after his coach William 'Lonestar' Dietz who claimed to be an Indian but probably was not- was a racist, but I would venture to say not than many people consider the name a racial slur. Other than congress, Barack Obama, the Oneida Indian Nation and the liberal PC folk, there is no indication as to how many Indians find it offensive.

The Oneida Indian Nation is at the forefront of the campaign to get the Redskins to change their name, but there are others who are not in the least bit offended.

There are Native American schools that call their teams Redskins. The term is used affectionately by some natives, similar to the way the N-word is used by some African-Americans. In the only recent poll to ask native people about the subject, 90 percent of respondents did not consider the term offensive, although many question the cultural credentials of the respondents.

All of which underscores the oft-overlooked diversity within Native America.

“Marginalized communities are too often treated monolithically,” said Carter Meland, a professor of American Indian Studies at the University of Minnesota.

“Stories on the mascot issue always end up exploring whether it is right or it is wrong, respectful or disrespectful,” said Meland, an Ojibwe Indian.

He believes Indian mascots are disrespectful, but said: “It would be interesting to get a sense of the diversity of opinion within a native community.”

Those communities vary widely.

Tommy Yazzie, superintendent of the Red Mesa school district on the Navajo Nation reservation, grew up when Navajo children were forced into boarding schools to disconnect them from their culture. Some were punished for speaking their native language. Today, he sees environmental issues as the biggest threat to his people.

The high school football team in his district is the Red Mesa Redskins.

“We just don’t think that (name) is an issue,” Yazzie said. “There are more important things like busing our kids to school, the water settlement, the land quality, the air that surrounds us. Those are issues we can take sides on.”

“Society, they think it’s more derogatory because of the recent discussions,” Yazzie said. “In its pure form, a lot of Native American men, you go into the sweat lodge with what you’ve got — your skin. I don’t see it as derogatory.”

Neither does Eunice Davidson, a Dakota Sioux who lives on the Spirit Lake reservation in North Dakota. “It more or less shows that they approve of our history,” she said.

More on the story here.

Some feel that even if one person is offended by something, then it is our duty to address that issue. I say, put on your big boy or girl pants and deal. If everyone is offended, then do something about it.

Unlikely Supporters Of Israel

Back in early August. South Africans held the largest pro-Israel rally ever in Johannesburg. Side by side were over 10,000 Jews and non-Jews, blacks and whites, and people from Nigeria, Cameroon and elsewhere, waving Israeli and South African flags, and voicing their support for Israel- especially notable considering the SA government does not support Israel.

Video here.

And Indians support Israel, too. They held their own pro-Israel, anti-radical Islam rally in Kolkata on August 16. Some 10,000 strong took to the streets in a show of solidarity.

And this oddity: Pacific Islanders, South Pacific Hebrews, supposed descendants of the Naphtali Tribe here singing about Israel. They have a Facebook page, though not very current.

And whoever created the page is not very thrilled with Obama. This was a post back in 2013.

Lucas 10:18 And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven.

- Baraq in hebrew (ברק) means LIGHTNING.

- The Hebrew letter vau is translated as "O" or "U", and is mainly used to make a connection between two words or two concepts

- BAMA is used to refer to the “Heights” of Heaven (Isaiah 14:14)

So who is the president of the USA Mr. Barak O Bama ?!?!?!?!

Lord of the FLIES : Also, in recent years recordings of Obama were taken with a fly on his face. Lord of the Flies in hebrew = Beëlzebub = the false god Baäl = Satan

Do I have to say more !?!?!

Very brave of these people, considering being pro-Israel isn't a very popular stance these days.

Inside The Islamic State (ISIS) - Vice News Video

Vice News has a 45 minute documentary on the Islamic State as ISIS now likes to be known.

This is where they say they will raise the black flag over Washington.

Video on YouTube here.

And here's Journeyman Pictures short intro to ISIS.

Something must be done to rid the world of these vermin.

ISIS Justifies Yazidi Genocide- They Were Asked To Convert First

MEMRI has translated an Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) propaganda video where an ISIS commander justifies the murder and rape of Yazidis. The man interviewing the Sheik asks him:

"Dear Sheik, various politicized media outlets published false reports that you had killed the Yazidis, (forced) them to convert to Islam, and violated the honor of their women. How do you respond to these reports?"

He doesn't specifically address the rape, but he does say they are trying get them to convert to save their kuffar souls, and were given that option first.

The video also shows a bunch of Yazidis who allegedly converted. But all you see is fear in their eyes. Check out the man at the very end of the video. So very sad.

Then you have the likes of this extremist Brit convert, ex-boxer Anthony Small, justifying the beheading of Foley, and terrorist violence.

Jihadist Who Beheaded Journalist James Foley Is Brit Londoner Named 'John'

The barbaric beheading of American journalist James Foley was carried out by a British jihadist who many think is a Londoner named John.  He's one of many British jihadists who have found their way to Syria to fight for the Islamic State of Iraq in the Levant (ISIL) aka ISIS and IS.

Intelligence agents in the UK and United States are urgently looking into reports that the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil) fighter, whose brutal actions shocked the world, is the ringleader of group of British jihadists who have specialised in hostage taking.

Based in the Isil stronghold of Raqqa in Syria, ‘John’, is described as a well-educated, intelligent, but highly committed member of the extremist terror group.

Operating closely with two other British born militants, the group have been dubbed ‘The Beatles’, by fellow jihadists because of their nationality.
The Brit extremists are considered to be some of the most "vicious and callous" militants fighting in that region. Over 500 are known to have made the trek to Syria and Iraq, although around half are thought to have gone back to England. That's around 250 radicalized individuals ready to do evil in the UK.

The UK Telegraph highlights some of those extremists including two 16-year-old twin sisters who went there to become jihad brides.

Socialist Prez Of Chicago Teachers Union Owns 3 Homes, 1 in Hawaii May Run For Mayor

Karen Lewis, the president of the Chicago Teachers Union, was out there with the best of them during the heyday of the "Occupy" movement. At a protest on October 10, 2011, she was rallying the troops talking about the 'inequitable redistribution of wealth" and the "robber baron mentality." She's also considering a run against current Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, calling him "Mayor 1%", and labelling herself neither "egotistical or rich."  But Lewis makes over $200,000 a year, and with her husband owns a $450,000 condo in Chicago, a $240,00  home on the Big Island of Hawaii, co-owns with her sister a vacation home in Union Pier, Michigan worth $305,000, and has time shares in New York, Mexico and Colorado, and two in Hawaii.

She's nowhere near as rich as multimillionaire Rahm, but what she makes 'aint too shabby, so her criticism of the wealthy smacks a tad hypocritical.

“Why do people of wealth and privilege try to convince the world they have neither?” she said on Twitter last year. “Be honest that you don’t have a clue about poverty.”
Though she hasn't yet decided whether she will run (there's a 50-50 chance she will), polls have her leading Emanuel by 9 percentage points.

She might not be in the top 1% but she's up there in the top 5, and admittedly so.

 “I don’t live extravagantly. But if you look just at the numbers, then, absolutely, I am in the 5 percent.

“We are comfortable." “We are not poor. We have never been poor. Does that mean I don’t have the pulse of [the poor]? I don’t live in luxury. I don’t hang out with wealthy people. I have always been solidly middle class.

“You cannot put me in the same class with Rahm Emanuel or [Republican gubernatorial candidate] Bruce Rauner.”
Solidly middle class, I think not. Maybe upper middle class, but more like rich.

Liberal hypocrisy at its best.

Men Can Spy On Future Wife While Bathing, Per Egyptian Fatwa

Here's the latest wacky fatwa out of Egypt. Salafist preacher Usama al-Qawsi says it's okay to spy on your future wife while she's bathing.

In a video, Salafist preacher Usama al-Qawsi said that the man can “hide" while watching the woman he “intends to marry” bathe.

“If you were really honest and wanted to marry that woman, and you were able to hide and watch her in secret, see the things that she wouldn’t usually let you see before marrying her, then it is acceptable as long as your intentions are pure,” Qawsi said in a video.

“One of the Prophet’s companions did that. Some disapproved and told him: ‘How do you do that when you’re one of the Prophet’s companions?’ The Prophet answered: ‘If you can see something that would make you want to marry her then go ahead and do it.’”
That fatwa was struck down by Egyptian religious authorities.

Hahaha. Oh those dirty Salafists.

Pakistani Muslim Claims ISIS A Global Threat

A Pakistani human rights activist and supporter of Israel, who also happens to be a Muslim, believes ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) is a global threat, and far worse than the Nazis.

In an interview, Kasim Kaz Hafeez said:

“Just looking at what they have done in Iraq already, a Muslim country, imagine them rampaging in Europe or North America,” Kasim emphasized. “Slaughter and the irradiation of peoples is part of their strategy. They must convert or die and even then, many convert to be later murdered.” Kasim believes that ISIS ideology is worse than the Nazis, because “the ideology that inspires them is a religious supremacist ideology which gives men in their eyes G-d given authority to murder to achieve their goals.”
“Radical Islam like Nazism a supremacist ideology but radical Islam is not centered in one country, its not just Iraq and Syria. The ideology has tentacles everywhere,” Kasim noted. “So on the one hand; you have ISIS swallowing up territory. On the other hand, you have people all over the world that will be happy as thousands of civilians are murdered in the name of their cause. Also you have people flocking from all over the world to join ISIS. It is a global ideology, which does not need a central government to flourish. Whereas Nazi Germany had its centralized system, which when it collapsed, Nazism as a world force ended. Even if we destroy ISIS, it is liable to crop up elsewhere. Like the Taliban were toppled, it wasn't the end of them or their ideology.”

He believes the Obama administration is weak and naive "when it comes to foreign policy" and that not stopping ISIS while it's still in its infancy would be a major mistake.  He said if they are not stopped now:

 “Firstly, we will see genocide and the systematic eradication of people simply because they are 'different.’ Secondly, it shows ISIS that they can butcher innocents in full view of the world and the world will not do a thing to intervene.” 
He also thinks Jordan is the next target and that

 “they are emboldened by every excess they are able to push without a response. Their potential is limitless.”
Well isn't that a comforting thought.

The latest trending Twitter hashtag is #ISISmovies mocking the jihadists the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, although they now want to be known simply as Islamic State, or IS.  But ISIS has a much better ring to it.

Chicago ATM Robber Wears Burqa To Hide Dectection

Gildardo Lopez Jr. was afraid he was about to lose his job with Garda Cash Logistics, so the Chicago ATM tech decided he would rob a Chase bank, wearing a burqa, take the money and run off to the Dominican Republic. Trouble is, he asked an employee at the bank for a key that would disable the alarm system.  The worker then told the FBI, and Lopez was arrested.

As FBI agents watched in the early morning hours Thursday, ATM technician Gildardo Lopez Jr. walked up to the Chase bank branch at 14 S. LaGrange Rd. disguised as a woman with a black burqa over his face, a walkie-talkie connected to ear buds and carrying a black suitcase, authorities said.
Lopez slipped on a pair of latex gloves and went inside the bank’s ATM vestibule. When he emerged 15 minutes later, authorities said, the suitcase was stuffed with $168,174 in cash.
“There’s a lot of money in there,” the complaint quoted Lopez as telling FBI agents who took him into custody. Later, while under arrest at the LaGrange police station, he called his older brother and was overheard by an agent saying, “Call Leo, I f****d up,” the charges alleged.
The rest here.

This is one of many reasons why burqas should be banned.

Does Police Deadly Force Justify Looting?

Excessive force by law enforcement is becoming an all too common occurrence, and it's not okay. In some cases innocent people, mostly black, are being killed.

Eric Garner, the 43-year-old asthmatic New York man allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes, dies while being held in a choke-hold by police, in spite of the fact that choke-holds have been banned since 1993 by the NYPD.  He's crying I can't breathe and no-one does a thing. Yes, selling black-market cigarettes is illegal, but witnesses claim he was not selling them at the time, and he had just broken up a fight.

22-year-old John Crawford III, was killed in an Ohio Walmart, for allegedly brandishing an air rifle that Walmart happens to sell, after witnesses (a former marine and his wife) called 911. No-one else seemed to find Crawford worrisome that day except for Ronald and April Ritchie (broken ankle and all), who were so fearful they followed Crawford around for a while, before calling police.  When police arrived, Crawford was on the phone talking to the mother of his children, holding the cell phone in one hand and the rifle in the other. Police told him to drop "the weapon", Crawford (who had no criminal record) told them it wasn't real, and within a split second he was shot dead.

Both of the above were black, and not much of a peep out of people.  Then, black teen Michael Brown is killed by a white police officer in Ferguson, Missouri, a predominately black town where most of the police are white. Since the stories differ between what the police claim happened, and what Brown's buddy Dorian Johnson says occurred, I will reserve judgment, but unlike Crawford who had no criminal record, it appears Brown had been involved that same day in a strong-arm robbery of a box of cigars. The 18-year-old was no innocent, but did he deserve to die, no way.  If there was a struggle for the officer's gun in the patrol car, as authorities have intimated, the policeman might have feared for his life. But again, we don't know for sure what transpired that night, and we probably never will, since there was no dashcam in the patrol car. Do people have the right to protest, yes. Peacefully. Do they have the right to loot? No. What does looting some poor shop owner's store accomplish? Just making you look bad, is all.

In some cases victims have been subjected to police violence even though they have complied with the cop's demands. Other times, they've resisted arrest or have not followed orders and it too ends badly. I blame that on the victim. However, with the increase in random violence these days, I can understand why police are fearful, but in most cases there is no need for excessive force, Crawford's case in point. Why was deadly force necessary? There have to be alternatives.

Bob Parks from Black and Right, posted this Chris Rock video from many moons ago, on How To Not Get Your Ass Kicked By The Police.  This should be mandatory viewing for all kids in school, maybe there would be fewer incidents of excessive and deadly force.

Brit Department Store Adds Hijabs To School Uniform Lineup

A decade ago, who would have thought that department stores in the West would be selling hijabs as part of their back-to-school uniform sales. U.K. department store John Lewis is doing just that.

John Lewis, which is due to sell the Islamic headscarf in its London and Liverpool stores, said it was responding to school demands.

“We provide uniforms for 350 schools across the country,” a spokesperson for John Lewis said.

“The school informs us of the items they want us to sell as part of their uniform list,” he added.

The store, which signed contracts with two schools, will sell a hijab for approximately $15 (£9).

John Lewis won the contract to supply uniforms to the Islamia Girls’ School in north-west London and Belvedere Academy in Liverpool.

ISIS Jihadists Love Nutella (and Robin Williams, for a while)

Alleged Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) jihadists have a penchant for Nutella, they've been posting photos of themselves on Twitter holding jars of the Italian choco/hazelnut spread posing in front of fully stocked supermarket shelves.  ISIS jihadists and their supporters also piped in on the loss of comedian Robin Williams last week, mourning the death of the star of one of their fave films Jumanji. 

On Twitter, ISIS supporter @Ibn_Fulaan, based in London, wrote:

"Shame. I liked Jumanji."

@Mujahid4life (aka Abdullah, another 19-year-old British convert and ISIS supporter) responded:

"Good movie. Loved it as a kid."
Fulaan then said:

 “Same, I had it on video lol.”

Abdullah also posted:

"#RobinWilliams is dead? Weird. Grew up watching his films."
And even the Chechen dog Omar al-Shishani (leader of ISIS- if his Twitter handle is for real) had this to say in response to a Twitter user's post saying "ISIS supporters talking Robin Williams.  Twitter has reached the singularity."

Omar Shishani @ShishaniOmar
We are humans like u, joke about girls mirls... Why we shouldnt see movie?! @AlexHortonTX @DGisSERIOUS

That is, until they discovered William's "jihad" sketch, which was part of his 2002 comedy tour. Abdullah (Mujahid4Life) suddenly made a 360 degree turnaround, posting the video on Twitter along with the following:

Those of you who say "RIP" to #RobinWilliams check out what he said about Islam.

May Allah make him burn.

Abu Hamzah AlNabilsi (@abuhamzah1948) had this to say about Williams:

@Alansarialjanab he committed suicide, cross dressed for a living and defames our religion may Allah give him what he deserves in the akhira

Who knows if these people really are who they say they are, but what they post on Twitter is blood pressure raising, and they certainly have no resemblance to humans.

Gazans Must Get Rid of Hamas- Claims Palestinian Activist

There are Palestinians who actually realize their future does not lie with the terrorist leadership Hamas. Bassem Eid, a political commentator and human rights activist who lives in East Jerusalem is one of those enlightened ones.

This was posted on YNetNews.

For 26 years I have been devoting my life to the mission of defending human rights. I have seen wars and terror. And yet, the past month has been one of the most difficult times in my life.

I live in East Jerusalem and witness the destruction of life around me. Highway 1 has once again turned into the line separating between east and west. The Palestinians in the capital attacked traffic lights and damaged the Light Rail and power supply lines. But I cannot accept that as a social protest – it's pure vindictiveness.

The coexistence I have been fighting for my entire life has been executed in the city square.

There is no doubt that the death and destruction Gaza has been hit by are like a tsunami. Both people are in pain, but each side denies the other side's pain, and so the pain gets worse.

And still, as a Palestinian, I must admit: I am responsible for part of what has happened. We can no longer deny our responsibility for the death of our own people.

Most of the Palestinians were against the rocket fire on Israel. They realized that the rockets would not give us anything. They called on Hamas to stop firing, knowing that it had paved the way for the death of its own people.

We knew that Hamas was digging the tunnels which would to lead to our destruction. We knew that three people live on every square meter in Gaza. And Hamas knew that an attack on Israel would lead to mass death, but it's leaders are more interested in their own victories than in the lives of their victims.

Indeed, Hamas depends on death, which gives it power and allows it to raise funds and purchase weapons. Hamas has never been interested in liberating the Palestinian people from the occupation. And Israel will never be able to destroy the infrastructures it has built. Only we, the Palestinian people, can do that.

It was the Gazan residents' responsibility to rebel against the Hamas rule. We knew what they were doing to us, but we let ourselves off easy and allowed it to happen.

Will all this death finally teach us a lesson? I hope so. The lesson is that we must get rid of Hamas and completely demilitarize Gaza. And then open the crossings.

I'm saying this as a loyal Palestinian. I'm saying this because I am concerned about my people's future.

Someone finally taking responsibility for the situation over there. Well done!

There is hope yet, as long as he's not a lone voice about to be snuffed out.

Muslim Fathers Of The Year- Bringing Kids To Fight For ISIS

Instead of teaching their kids to play basketball or soccer or whatever it is they play in the Middle-East, or taking them camping for a little fishing, Muslim fathers are bonding with their boys by dragging them to Syria for a little jihad.

This Saudi dad absconded with his two boys- 11-year-old Abed al-Shayeq and his 10-year-old brother Ahmed- to join the Islamist State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) in Syria after a fight with his estranged wife.  Daddy texted their mommy after he slipped into Syria through Turkey calling them "birds in paradise", a euphemism for "martyred" kids. They of course will “receive the necessary training before being sent to the battlefield” according to ISIS social media accounts. Which of course means, death.

Then there's this model dad.  Wanted Australian terrorist Khaled Sharrouf took his boys to Syria last year to join ISIS, and recently posted to his Twitter account a photo of his 7-year-old  proudly holding the decapitated head of a Syrian soldier by the hair. The caption:  "That's my boy."  Sharrouf's brother, who lives in Australia, thinks people should just forget about the photo.  Let's hope Australian authorities are keeping an eye on the bro.

That's Sharrouf with his kiddies.

You're going to have to google for the graphic photos.

News of the Middle-East- Joke of the day

Pretty spot on assessment of how the news is viewed out of the Middle-East.

Now we need one that places blame on every destructive world event on Israel and Zionism. It amazes me how people think.

Muslim Cleric's Beheading Instructions: Enjoy Yourself

Here's a lovely little video of some Muslim cleric sitting in front of his laptop instructing followers on the best way to behead people.

With a sword, slit, not sever, and definitely "enjoy yourself with it."

They have a good laugh about it.

He seems to be referencing Al-Qurtubi, an imam born in Cordoba when the Muslims were occupying Spain back in the 1200s.

I'm not sure where the video was taken.

GA School Bans Cupcakes- Not Fair To Certain Kids

A Newnan, Georgia, elementary school has banned any kind of baked goodies for birthday parties because the kiddies with allergies might feel left out. Apparently, at least a whopping ten percent of the school kids have some form of allergy to anything from blueberries to peanuts to gluten.

Parents of Brooks Elementary School students received that dandy announcement via letter and school principal Julie Raschen had this to day regarding the decision:

“When parents have brought in goodies for birthdays, oftentimes these children are not included in the snack because of dietary restrictions and have felt left out. Parents can still send in treats for their child’s birthday, we just ask that they not be food items.”

What kind of treats might those be, one wonders.

But it's not just the actual allergies that concerns Raschen, it's the unfairness of it all.

“Although our first priority above all else is the safety of our students, we are also trying to create an environment in which all students feel included and not singled out. So both safety and a positive environment for all students were the reasons for this change.”

Well life isn't fair.  The sooner they learn that the better.

Though I don't have kids, many of my vegetarian friends did, and what they would do was bring goodies to those kinds of events so their children could enjoy a little treat.  Why can't the parents of the children with allergies do the same thing. If you're child can't eat gluten send him to school with a gluten-free cupcake. Why make everyone suffer.

Apparently, it will only apply to birthday parties and not to other holiday festivities.

Go figure.

Woman In France Fined For Saying "Islam Is Crap"

According to this woman in Belfort, France, she has been fined 3,000 Euro (1,500 suspended) for 'blasphemy' for saying "Islam is crap."

Here is her video describing what happened and an appeal for funds to appeal the conviction.

Gates of Vienna has more on Christine Tasine. It appears the counter-jihad activist had a confrontation with a Muslim, when she told him how she felt about Islam, which led to a trial and conviction.

Jimmy Fallon Pokes Fun At Biden's Africa Is A Country Gaffe

Nancy Pelosi isn't the only one who thinks Africa is a country, our second in command- Joe Biden- thinks so too. He said as much during an African Leadership summit when he referred to the continent as a country.

And Jimmy Fallon poked fun at him for that embarrassing gaffe during a Tonight Show episode. Saying

Fallon also made a funny regarding Barack Obama's rock bottom approval rating. 40% or less, depending on which poll you pay attention to.

Check out Fallon's  video here.

Nancy Pelosi Believes Africa Is A Country and Hamas Is A Humanitarian Organization

Ret. Lt. Col. Ralph Peters called Nancy Pelosi “dumb as a rock". In case you missed why he referred to her as such, here's the scoop. In an interview with CNN's Candy Crowley, the Democratic House Minority Leader was discussing how the Israelis definitely have the right to defend themselves against the barrage of rocket attacks launched into their country by Hamas, but then she said the following:

 “And we have to confer with the Qataris, who have told me over and over again that Hamas is a humanitarian organization. Maybe they could use their influence, uh, to , uh ..”
Crowley cuts her off:

“The U.S. thinks they’re a terrorist organization though, correct? Do you?”

Pelosi responds:

 Crowley tries to say something and Pelosi cuts her off with:
"And we’ve had that discussion.”

Video here. 

She also happens to think Africa is a country, at least according to her Twitter post that was soon deleted after the firestorm of ridicule the Tweet received.

And this is the person who served as Speaker of The House from 2007 through 2011, which means if anything had happened to both the President and Vice-President, she would have been next in command.  That's pretty darn scary.

Video- Japanese Rally For Israel

Not a huge crowd, but this is a video of some people in Japan rallying in support of Israel in front of the Embassy.

More Fauxtography From Hamas In Gaza

Believe it or not, these photos were posted on a Muslim Facebook page Ummat al-Islamiyah Media Network along with pleas to stop sharing staged photos of alleged "Zionist oppression" in Gaza.

No, they're obviously not pro -Israel, but I thought it was interesting that they do not approve of the misleading, fake information Hamas is throwing out there in order to garner world favor to further the Palestinian cause.

Take this photo, that someone discovered was a fake.  The original, sans the red lettering, claimed this was an IDF soldier.  Apparently not.

And the real photo, below.

Then there's this photo of a deceased child that one assumes originated in Syria, but that Hamas later claims was a Gazan child.

Then these poor children, that were apparently killed in Syria, turned up dead in Gaza.

Ummat al-Islamiyah Media even posted an anti-Hamas video calling for the world to save the children of Gaza from Hamas.

But faking news out of Gaza has become such a common occurrence that the staging of these events has its own name: Pallywood.  Just search YouTube and you will find a slew of videos showing how Hamas (and others) have had a grand old time manipulating the Western media.

And remember the photo making the rounds on social media that Hamas originally posted on Twitter of an horrifically mangled teenage girl in a mini-skirt that was allegedly killed in Gaza?  A still from the horror flick Final Destination 4. If the obviously over-the-top mangledness wasn't enough to tip someone off that this was a fake, the young girl's attire should have.

This is not to say that there haven't been any civilian casualties- there have been, and the death of any innocent is tragic- but Hamas uses it for propaganda purposes which is unconscionable. But Hamas is ultimately responsible for those deaths by taking the fight to schools and hospitals.

Jon Voight Blasts Cruz and Bardem Over "Ignorant" Letter

In response to the 'open letter' Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem wrote condemning Israel's latest actions in Gaza, calling it a 'genocide', Jon Voight penned a letter of his own blasting the duo for fomenting anti-Semitism around the world.

In a guest column published in The Hollywood Reporter, he wrote:

My name is Jon Voight and I am more than angry, I am heartsick that people like Penelope Cruz and Javier Bardem could incite anti-Semitism all over the world and are oblivious to the damage they have caused.

They are obviously ignorant of the whole story of Israel’s birth, when in 1948 the Jewish people were offered by the UN a portion of the land originally set aside for them in 1921, and the Arab Palestinians were offered the other half. The Arabs rejected the offer, and the Jews accepted, only to be attacked by five surrounding Arab countries committed to driving them into the sea. But the Israelis won. The Arabs tried it again in 1967, and again in 1973, launching a sneak attack on the holiest Jewish holiday. Each time the Jews prevailed but not without great loss of life. And when Israel was not fighting a major war, it was defending itself against terrorist campaigns.

And yet Israel has always labored for a peaceful relation with its Arab neighbors. It voluntarily returned the Sinai Peninsula to Egypt in return for peace, and gave the Palestinians all of Gaza as a peace gesture. What was the response? The Palestinians elected Hamas, a terrorist organization, and they immediately began firing thousands of rockets into Israel.

After years of trying to make peace, the wars they had to fight, being attacked by their enemies, and still being attacked, and finally after years of running into bomb shelters and having hundreds of civilians killed by suicide bombers, civilians being killed in their sleep, stabbed to pieces, finding enough is enough and finally retaliating, instead of my peers sticking up for the only democratic country in that region, they go and take out poison letters against them.

You have forgotten how this war started. Did Hamas not kidnap and kill three young teenagers for the sake of killing, and celebrated after the killing? What a travesty of justice.

I am asking all my peers who signed that poison letter against Israel to examine their motives. Can you take back the fire of anti-Semitism that is raging all over the world now?

You have been able to become famous and have all your monetary gains because you are in a democratic country: America. Do you think you would have been able to accomplish this in Iran, Syria, Lebanon, et cetera? You had a great responsibility to use your celebrity for good. Instead, you have defamed the only democratic country of goodwill in the Middle East: Israel.

You should hang your heads in shame. You should all come forth with deep regrets for what you did, and ask forgiveness from the suffering people in Israel.

Of course, Voight is an unapologetic conservative- he's a star, he can afford to be.

Cruz and Bardem did 'clarify' their position after a barrage of criticism regarding the letter, but it's too little, too late. The damage is already done

Bardem issued this statement:

“My signature was solely meant as a plea for peace. Destruction and hatred only generate more hatred and destruction.

While I was critical of the Israeli military response, I have great respect for the people of Israel and deep compassion for their losses. I am now being labeled by some as anti-Semitic, as is my wife – which is the antithesis of who we are as human beings. We detest anti-Semitism as much as we detest the horrible and painful consequences of war.

I was raised to be against any act of violence, and the consequent suffering of humanity for it, regardless of religions, ethnicities and borders. Too many innocent Palestinian mothers have lost their children to this conflict. Too many innocent Israeli mothers share the same grief. There should not be any political reason that can justify such enormous pain on both sides. It’s my hope that leaders involved in this complicated struggle will heed the call of United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, ‘In the name of humanity, the violence must stop.’

Palestinians and Israelis in the region deserve to have their safety and human rights recognized and respected so in the near future they may find peace and co-existence, for themselves and their innocent children. So generations to come could bring hope, forgiveness and compassion for each other. This is the most basic and necessary way to peace for all of us.”

Cruz earlier released this statement:
“I don’t want to be misunderstood on this important subject. I’m not an expert on the situation and I’m aware of the complexity of it. My only wish and intention in signing that group letter is the hope that there will be peace in both Israel and Gaza. I am hopeful all parties can agree to a cease fire and there are no more innocent victims on either side of the border. I wish for unity, and peace.”

Most wish for unity and peace, but that's not going to happen as long as Hamas remains in power, and you're an idiot if you think otherwise.

ISIS Militants Open Marriage Bureau For Widows and Single Women

Fancy a man with a beard, adventure, the rugged outdoors, you too can hook up with a jihadist. To facilitate the union, ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria or whatever they're calling themselves these days), has established a "marriage bureau" for single women and widows who want to marry a militant fighting in Iraq or Syria.

The main office is based out of al-Bab in northern Syria, and according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, all the women need to do is submit their names and addresses  “and ISIS fighters will come knocking at their door and officially ask for marriage."  

And it seems the "caliphate" is also now in the tourism biz.

Last week, ISIS also expanded into tourism, taking Jihadists on honeymoons and civilians to visit other parts of its “caliphate.”
Running twice-weekly tours from Syria’s Raqa to Iraq’s Anbar, ISIS buses fly the group’s black flag and play jihadist songs throughout the journey.
DailyMail UK has more on those honeymoon tours.

How about this one, gals?

Benghazi Bites The Dust?- Declared An Islamic Emirate

The fall of Libya's Muammar Gaddafi spawned the rise of the Salafist jihadi militant group Ansar al-Sharia. Those same Islamists responsible for the murder of  U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and several other Americans during the 2012 Benghazi attack, have been battling to take over Benghazi ever since, and have finally succeeded.  At least that's what they claim. As of late Wednesday, Benghazi is now an "Islamic emirate", says Mohammed al-Zahawi, Ansar al-Sharia's spokesperson.

Not so, says Khalifa Haftar.
"..Khalifa Haftar, a retired, renegade former army general who earlier this year launched a self-declared campaign to clear the city of Islamist militants, denied the group’s claims.

“The national Libyan army is in control of Benghazi and only withdrew from certain positions for tactical reasons,” Haftar told Al Arabiya News Channel.

“The claim that Benghazi is under the control of militias is a lie,” he said.

So, did Benghazi bite the dust and fall to Ansar al-Sharia?  Hard to tell, at this point, but I'm sure in the coming days it will become clearer who actually controls the city.  We know there have been some recent major battles in Benghazi, attacks on the airport prompting an evacuation of American personnel from the city, and news that an army base was taken over by Islamists and militiamen, so I'm thinking it's more likely that Ansar al-Sharia accomplished its goal. For now. And if they have, expect more bloodshed.

More here.

The rising tide of Islamism does not bode well for that region.
