We are saved!

According to this BBC report, Iran nuclear resolution 'agreed'.
What a sad joke.
The US says it has reached agreement with France, Britain and Germany on a draft UN resolution calling for Iran to end its uranium enrichment programme.
The text says the UN's atomic agency should decide in November whether to take further action against Iran.
"... decide in November wether to take further action against Iran."


If the Persian wants a bomb,
give him one.

The face of perversion

The face of depravity.
The face of abomination.

The face of a man who proudly claims to murder children

Let's give them another state

PA clergy call for genocide of Jews
Twice in three days, Palestinian television has shown religious leaders calling for the mass killing of Jews.

Both clerics said such a slaughter is a necessary stage in history and must be carried out quickly, reported Palestinian Media Watch. Each cited the same Hadith, Islamic tradition attributed to Muhammad.

Palestinian leaders traditionally have taught that the following Hadith applies today:

The Hour [Resurrection] will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews and kill them. And the Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!
Says Palestinian Media Watch: "This teaching may well be a dominant motivating factor that drives terror against Israeli civilians, because it presents the killing of Jews as a religious obligation, not related to the conflict over borders, but as something inherent to Allah's world."

Sheik Ibrahim Madiras' sermon of last Friday was broadcast the same day on PA TV.

Madiras declared, "The Prophet said: The Resurrection will not take place until the Muslims fight the Jews, and the Muslims kill them. The Muslims will kill the Jews, rejoice [in it], rejoice in Allah's Victory. The Muslims will kill the Jews, and he will hide.

"The Prophet said: The Jews will hide behind the rock and tree, and the rock and tree will say: oh servant of Allah, oh Muslim this is a Jew behind me, come and kill him! Why is there this malice? Because there are none who love the Jews on the face of the earth: not man, not rock and not tree; everything hates them. They destroy everything – they destroy the trees and destroy the houses. Everything wants vengeance on the Jews, on these pigs on the face of the earth, and the day of our victory, Allah willing, will come."

Two days later, on Sept. 12, Dr. Muhammad Ibrahim Maadi made the following comment on his weekly television show:

"We are waging this cruel war with the brothers of the monkeys and pigs, the Jews and the sons of Zion. The Jews will fight you and you will subjugate them. Until the Jew will stand behind the tree and rock. And the tree and rock will say: oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him!"
On "Palestinian Authority" official TV. This type of drivel is found there, as well as on their radio, newspapers, magazines and schoolbooks.

And I have no further comment.

My opinion on Islam...

... and other religions are not a secret. It seems like here's and ex-Muslim who feels much the same way I do.
Headed by Ali Sina, presents articles and commentaries that debunk much of the Quran and charge that Islam's founder, Muhammad, was a rapist, pedophile, mass murderer and an "evil man."
Well. Couldn't have said it better myself. It is not news, but coming from an authoritative source, it is valuable nonetheless.
...Sina writes, "Muslims are triumphalists and claim victory even when they are clearly defeated. A Muslim can never accept defeat. A Muslim's typical response to this site is: 'My faith in Islam grew after I read your site.' How can one's faith grow after reading the proof that the man whom he thought to be a prophet was guilty of all the above charges? Has anyone disproved any of those charges?"

Continues Sina: "I have debated with Muslims who claimed victory because according to them I have not proven that Muhammad's sexual relationship at the age of 53 with the 8 years 9 months old Aisha constitute pedophilia. I consider this a self-evident fact that needs no proof. I do not think there is any need to prove that day is bright and night is dark to a seeing person. And to [the] blind proofs are of no avail."
Truly. And this "triumphalist" mindset also shows itself when a bumbling Muslim terrorist prematurely detonates himself. Through an act of ineptness and stupidity he accidently kills himself, yet all his "brothers" insist on designating him a "martyr". Even when Arab terrorists kill an Arab jogger in a drive-by shooting, mistaking him for a Jew, the victim is then elevated to martyr status. This is how sick Arab Muslim society has become.

And then he says something that in my book gives him a lot of credit:
While Sina's site skewers Islam in many ways, it doesn't suggest a replacement religion.

Writes Sina: "My criticism applies to all religions. The very concept of God sending messengers to be known and worshipped is absurd. All those who come pretending to bring a message from an invisible god that only they can see are charlatans and their claims are bogus.
His stance against Islam not fueled by a conversion to another faith. Quite the contrary, he recognizes that it is the basic premise that "I believe in God A, you believe in God B, and one of us must be wrong", that is the root cause of WW4. Modern Christians may have learned to accept that other faiths exist, and are trying to reconcile their belief with that of others, but this is only possible through personal tolerance. It is still another, different God, with a different name and a different rulebook.

Good on ya, Sina.

Lindsey spells it out once more on Iran

We are witnessing what should be a familiar "dance of deception" that has been used by every rogue power in its pursuit of nuclear weapons.

First, the rogue nation will claim it needs nuclear reactors for peaceful production of energy. In the case of Iran, which is awash with oil, it is hard to claim this with a straight face.

Second, there is the clandestine hiring of foreign experts to help with the project – usually this is kept secret as long as possible.

Third, there is the attempted secret building of uranium enrichment facilities.

Fourth, once this is discovered, there is the stalling and stonewalling of the International Atomic Energy Agency. The rogue nation finally allows only limited, controlled inspections of its facilities. And then there is the usual hand wringing of Western nations as they attempt to rein in the rogue nation with diplomacy, threats of economic sanctions and bribes.

All the while the rogue nation secretly continues at top speed to finish the facilities needed to make the bomb, while vociferously denying it has any intention of building an atomic bomb.

This did not work in Pakistan. It did not work in North Korea. It was not working in Libya until the rapid U.S. military victory over Iraq caused Moammar Gadhafi to realize it could happen to him. And it certainly is not going to work in Iran.
[Emph mine - Ed]
What is so worrying is that it is certain that the EU, US and other ostensibly rational political entities know what is going on. I cannot see the rationale for allowing the Persian to aquite nuclear weapons. But there it is. And why is Iran so special? No one is happy the dictators in North-Korea and Pakistan have nuclear weapons? Well, there is this structural difference: The leaders in Iran are essentially insane, they are religious fanatics. They are rational only in the tactical sense, to obtain an insane strategic goal.
...the real point to grasp is that Iran poses a unique danger. The particular mind-set of the Shiite Ayatollahs should send a chill down everyone's spine. Their particular brand of Muslim thinking involves a heavy emphasis on the glory of dying for Allah in the cause of destroying His enemies.
They HAVE to be dealt with. Severely and decisively.

France and their dues

From Cox&Forkum:

IAEA mulls Iran atomic resolution

The UN's nuclear watchdog is to decide on a draft resolution offering Iran a deadline to show it does not have a nuclear weapons programme.
Germany, France and the UK want to give Iran until November to prove it is not lying about its nuclear intentions.
I'm sure the Russians (who are building the nuclear plant at Busher) want to give them even more time. And the Russians have veto power in the UN SC, remember? Why is this relevant? Because if those cheeky Persians fail to prove their innocence by November, the matter should go the the Security Council. NOT, however according to fellow Muslim (and IAEA chief) El Baradei:
[Germany, France and UK] want the IAEA to give Iran until November to dispel suspicions about its nuclear intentions - but IAEA chief, Mohamed ElBaradei, has said there was no time limit for completing the investigation.

On his way into the meeting in Vienna, he said it was an "open process".
Am I really so paranoid to think that this Egyptian is doing everything he can to aid the Mad Mullahs in their quest for Nukes? (Why the West would consciously let him is another question; aside from the ensuing destruction of Israel I see no advantage in it for them).

I am hoping (but doubting) that Israel still has the balls (and the capability) to bomb the Islamic maniacs back into the Stone Age, where - according their own mentality - they belong.

And God has nothing to do with it

This op-ed spells it out as clear as day: Israel belongs to whoever can conquer it and keep it. Quite apart from treaties signed and deals made. Certainly for the Jews this is valid: The land is yours for as long as you choose to hold on to it. Give it up, or get defeated in a war, and you loose it.
The previous owner/occupiers of Israel included, if you count backward in time from today:

 The Jews, who conquered Judea, Samaria, and Gaza (which Israel calls Yesha) during the 1967 war. Israel used to control the Sinai peninsula following the 1973 war, but some stupid Israeli politician handed it back to Egypt due to the influence of another equally stupid US president. But that's another story for another day. Israel also conquered the Golan Heights from Syria. Judea and Samaria were conquered from:

 The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, which was set up by international agreement to be the original "Palestinian" homeland that Yasser Arafat and company have been bitching about for the last 40+ years.

 The Jews took over Israel formally in May, 1948 from:

 England, who took it over in 1917 from:

 The Ottoman Turks, who took over Palestine in 1517 from:

 The Mamluks, Turkish and Circassian slave-soldiers headquartered in Egypt, in 1250 took Palestine over from:

 The Ayyubi dynasty, the descendants of Saladin, the Kurdish Muslim leader who in 1187 took Jerusalem and most of Palestine from:

 The European Christian Crusaders, who in 1099 conquered Palestine from:

 The Seljuk Turks, who ruled Palestine in the name of:

 The Abbasid Caliphate of Baghdad, which in 750 took over the sovereignty of the entire Near East from:

 The Umayyad Caliphate of Damascus, which in 661 inherited control of the Islamic lands from:

 The Arabs of Arabia, who in the first flush of Islamic expansion conquered Palestine in 638 from:

 The Byzantines, who upon the division of the Roman Empire in 395, inherited Palestine from:

 The Romans, who in 63 BC took it over from:

 The last Jewish kingdom, which during the Maccabee rebellion from 168 to 140 BC won control of the land from:

 The Hellenistic Greeks, who under Alexander the Great in 333 BC conquered the Near East from:

 The Persian empire, which under Cyrus the Great in 639 BC freed Jerusalem and Judah from:

 The Babylonian empire, which under Nebuchadnezzar in 586 BC took Jerusalem and Judah from:

 The Jews, who conquered the land starting about 1400 BC from:

 The Canaanites, who had inhabited the land for thousands of years before they were dispossessed by the Israelites.

Who Will Conquer Israel Next?
Who will conquer Israel next? If there is another conqueror, Israel will have no one to appeal to, and no one to blame but itself. And giving away pieces of land voluntarily is the beginning of the end.
Israel owns the land.

And the Philistines may leave. Or take an oath of loyalty, become Israelis by adoption and live in peace with the Jewish state of Israel.

Or die.

I really don't care which.

The Jews will own the land until they're conquered. Or until somebody in the Israeli government is stupid enough to force its citizens to leave the land.

Uh-oh. I forgot.

Israel's present government has been stupid enough to start forcing its citizens to leave the land. They're making them leave Gaza, which is part of the historic land.
The Jews are handing the noose to the modern Philistines. Keep this up, and they will have no one to blame but themselves.

How peace with Arabs is working out - Part II

I commented earlier on the Arabs' idea of peace with Israel. It is difficult (and probably useless as well) to try and distinguish between Egyptian government policy and grass-roots hatred towards Israel. It doesn't really matter who initiates actions like these: Egyptian Terror Cell Stopped
A terrorist cell from Egypt was apprehended three weeks ago on its way to an attack in Israel. Indictments were handed down today in the Be'er Sheva District Court against six Egyptian students who infiltrated into Israel for the purpose of carrying out at least one attack and abducting Israeli soldiers to Egypt.

The university student terrorists planned to use the soldiers' weapons to take control of a tank and even rob an Israeli bank for funds to continue their wave of terror.
If I didn't know any better, this would constitute an act of war.

Reminder of depravity

I once predicted (hoping I'd be wrong) that the Muslim Psychopaths would need to sink to new lows. Well, they did. I wonder what new snuff movies will be released. Raping, torturing, sawing heads off women just raped and tortured. I don't know what's worse: The sickness of these psychopaths, or their trust that their fellow Muslims will appreciate their actions (and are they wrong to believe this?).

Victor Davis Hansen Refocus

After all the bullshit about forged evidence from Bush's military past, VDH puts a few things back in perspective.
Chechen Islamicists burn up Russian airliners and shoot schoolgirls — and say they are victims, deprived of the chance for their own autonomous theocracy. Beheaders in Iraq decapitate Americans, Pakistanis, Koreans, Japanese, and Nepalese — only to claim that these are infidels guilty of trying to build roads and bridges. Italian humanitarians and charity workers are kidnapped by Islamicists. In the "holy" city of Najaf, religious extremists bomb innocents, not only without gratitude for those who freed them from Saddam, but full of hatred for those who would bring them consensual government.

Islamic terrorists kidnap French journalists and threaten them with execution, demanding that a sovereign nation previously known for its appeasement of radical Middle Eastern rogue regimes overturn a law protecting secular life in its schools. Hamas "freedom fighters" blow up buses inside Israel and call the dead children Zionists who belong in the sea.

Islamic fascists incinerate dozens in Madrid, and claim they have a right to do so because of the Spanish role in ridding the world of the Hussein clan — or was the real rub the Reconquista? Australians in Bali are engulfed in flame by car bombers for the felony of being Western visitors in an Islamic enclave.
Sometimes it is hard to tell wether releasing the obvious forgeries about Bush serve any other purpose than to get out of the defensive and go on the offense (talking about the Kerry team and its proponents). Even if that is the case, it also draws peoples attention away from what is really important: WW4.
Ask yourself: What do a Russian ten-year-old, a poor black farmer in Darfur, an elderly pensioner in Israel, a stockbroker in New York, and a U.N. aid worker in Afghanistan have in common? In the last three years, they have all died in similar ways: Unarmed and civilian, they were murdered by a common cowardly method fueled by a fascist ideology.

At some point, the leaders of the Western world (if there are any left besides George W. Bush and Tony Blair) are going to look at all this madness worldwide and come to the bitter conclusion that there is a disgusting pattern: Not every Muslim is a fascist terrorist, but almost every fascist terrorist is a Muslim. Killers are not screaming "Hail Mary" when they machine gun children in the back, slit the throat of airline stewardesses, or blow pregnant women up on buses across the globe. And they are not the subjects of condemnatory fatwas in Iran or Saudi Arabia.
I have called Islam a cancer of the planet. When I do this, I mean every Muslim who perpetrates terror, or fails or refuses to condemn it without qualifications. Muslims like these make up the vast majority of Islam.
Much of the Islamic Middle East continues to blame others for its own induced catastrophe, apparently unaware — thanks to the lever of oil it didn't discover, doesn't know how to develop, and uses to intensify rather than alleviate its poverty — that its entire culture is becoming an international pariah. Islamic young men on European flights are looked at with distrust; they are not welcome in Russia. China wants none of them. They are wary of visiting India. Australia learned from Bali. The whole world is watching — in disgust.

In short, the suicide bomber, the improvised explosive device, the car bomb, the televised beheading, the wacko fatwa, the sleazy propaganda streamer on the Internet, the new cult of death — all cowardly and lethal phenomena — these are now the innovations that the world associates with the Middle East in lieu of gene research, car production, or computer breakthroughs. If you look for gender equity in the Middle East, you won't find it in Arab Olympic delegations, Saudi schools, or the Iranian government, but in the opportunity for young women to blow themselves up right beside men. Indeed, killing infidels is the nascent women's-liberation movement of the radical Muslim world.
There is of course a small but bright spot of light in the dark hellhole that is Middle-East - and it is hated most for all that brightness.

Hansen thinks Beslan may have been a turning point, the straw that broke the camels back.
The U.S. military — not NATO, the U.N., or the EU — shut down the al Qaeda sanctuary in Afghanistan and the nightmare of Saddam's Iraq. It is the only protector of the effort to jumpstart reform in Iraq. Appreciation of that power impressed both Pakistan and Libya. Threat of that force keeps terrorist killers in Lebanon, Syria, and Iran careful not to leave visible tracks among their compliant, but also apprehensive, hosts. India understands that; so does China. Russia also grasps that there is now no appeasement possible with Islamic killers. How the Arab-Islamic world managed to unite over 3 billion nuclear Anglo Americans, Indians, Chinese, and Russians in their suspicions of it will be a case-study in imbecility for diplomatic historians for decades to come.
I hope they are united. I am too cynical to even hope, let alone believe that given some time and enough money, countries like Russia will easily change priorities and course again. But I do agree that no matter who the allies of the day may be, the use of maximum force is an essential tool in this fight. It is the one thing they understand.
