Another Woman and Girl Rescued from Torment in Arab Village

Another Woman and Girl Rescued from Torment in Arab Village
Arutz Sheva ^ | 9-29-06 | Hillel Fendel

A Yad L'Achim special: Eight hareidi-religious Jews in disguise rescued a Jewish girl from her Moslem father's home in the PA-controlled city of Tul Karem, east of Netanya.

Accounts differ as to how precisely the rescue took place, but it was clearly planned thoroughly in advance. The story began several years ago when an Arab man from Tul Karem met a Jewish girl from Ashdod, and it was "love at first sight," according to the Arab. The Jewess has a different version, however; she says he first fooled her into believing he was Jewish - and neglected to mention that he was already married with children. In fact, when the two later married and moved to Tul Karem, the first wife and five children lived nearby, without her knowledge.

The Jewish woman said her husband forbade her to go outside and beat her, and also later beat her daughter, born five years ago. about the mistreatment and disrespect.....

Culture of death threats for an article

Death Threats in Brussels, France (Robert Redeker)
from The Brussels Journal ^ | 09/29/2006 | Paul Belien

Yesterday the Belgian authorities decided to give police protection to people working in the Brussels prisons of Vorst and Sint-Gillis. The decision was taken after two jailers, on their way to work, were attacked on a Brussels tram. Immigrant youths called them “assassins” and threatened them with knives. All the prison employees are now escorted by the police on their way to the car park or to the nearby train station.

According to the youths the jailers “murdered” Fayçal Chabaan, a 25-year old Moroccan criminal, who was an inmate in Vorst Prison. Chabaan, died last Sunday after having been given a sedative. Sunday was the first day of the Islamic holy month of ramadan when Muslims are only allowed to eat after sunset. Moroccan youths claim Chabaan was holding his ramadan fast and had complained about the food of the evening meal. The situation in the Brussels prisons is tense, with many Muslim inmates blaming the prison authorities for Chabaan’s death.

Yesterday evening a dustbin was set alight by immigrant youths in Brussels Marollen neighbourhood, but according to the police the situation was calm and no arrests were made. Representatives of Moroccan organisations met with Brussels politicians and complained about the lack of subsidies for youth projects.

Meanwhile in France, a philosophy teacher is under police protection after receiving death threats over an op-ed article [French text here] which he wrote in a national newspaper. In the article, which was published in the conservative daily Le Figaro of September 19th, Robert Redeker accused Islam of “exalting violence.” Mr Redeker has not attended classes at his school near Toulouse since the article was published. Pierre Rousselin, the editor in chief of Le Figaro, apologized on Al-jazeera for the publication of the article. A number of Islamic countries, including Egypt, banned Le Figaro following the publication of Redeker’s piece. Mr Rousselin said the publication of the op-ed was a mistake. He said the article did not express the paper’s opinion. The article is no longer available on the Figaro website.

Mr Redeker has written a letter to his friend, the philosopher André Glucksmann, describing his ordeal [French text here]:

“I am now in a catastrophic personal situation. Several death threats have been sent to me, and I have been sentenced to death by organizations of the al-Qaeda movement. [...] On the websites condemning me to death there is a map showing how to get to my house to kill me, they have my photo, the places where I work, the telephone numbers, and the death fatwa. [...] There is no safe place for me, I have to beg, two evenings here, two evenings there. [...] I am under the constant protection of the police. I must cancel all scheduled conferences. And the authorities urge me to keep moving. [...] All costs are at my own expense, including those of rents a month or two ahead, the costs of moving twice, legal expenses, etc.

It's quite sad. I exercised my constitutional rights, and I am punished for it, even in the territory of the Republic. This affair is also an attack against national sovereignty – foreign rules, decided by criminally minded fanatics, punish me for having exercised a constitutional right, and I am subjected, even in France, to great injury.”

The culture of the headscarf is used the same way teenage gangs use colors and insignia.

The culture of the headscarf is used the same way teenage gangs use colors and insignia. It's used to identify and ostracize those not in their tribe.

Max Boot: Muslims' Complicity With Violence
Unless it clamps down vigorously on fanaticism, the Islamic world risks validating its worst caricatures.
September 27, 2006

EVER SINCE 9/11, a dark view of Islam has been gaining currency on what might be called the Western street. This view holds that, contrary to the protestations of our political leaders — who claim that acts of terrorism are being carried out by a minority of extremists — the real problem lies with Islam itself. In this interpretation, Islam is not a religion of peace but of war, and its 1.2 billion adherents will never rest until all of humanity is either converted, subjugated or simply annihilated.

Is the war on terrorism really a "clash of civilizations"? The overreaction to Pope Benedict XVI's relatively innocuous remarks at the University of Regensburg on Sept. 12 would seem to lend weight to this alarming notion.

As part of a plea for combining reason with religion, the pope cited a 14th century Byzantine emperor who condemned Muhammad's teachings as "evil and inhuman" because of "his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached." The pope subsequently made clear that these were not his own views, but this did not stop an explosion of animosity across the Muslim world. Amid calls from angry clerics to "hunt down" the holy father (a.k.a. "the dog of Rome" and the "worshiper of the cross"), various hotheads have taken to the streets and attacked Christian churches. This recalls the over-the-top outcry this year after a Danish newspaper dared to print cartoons depicting Muhammad as an instigator of violence.

Muslim spokesmen claim that these are unconscionable slurs. Yet, while demanding respect for their own religion, too many Muslims accord too little respect to competing faiths or even to competing brands of their own faith.

Where are the demonstrations in the Muslim street when the president of Iran denies the Holocaust and calls for the destruction of Israel? Or when Palestinian kidnappers force two Western journalists to convert to Islam at gunpoint? Or when Sunni terrorists in Iraq bomb Shiite mosques and slaughter hundreds of worshipers? All too many Islamic leaders prefer to harp on the supposed sins of the "infidels," however exaggerated or even fictionalized (no, the CIA didn't bomb the World Trade Center to create an excuse for invading Afghanistan), rather than focusing on the problems within their own umma (community).

And yet it would be a mistake to conclude that the woes of Islamic society today, serious as they are, are endemic to the religion itself.

It is true that, alone of the world's major faiths, Islam was founded by a prophet who used force to win converts. "I was ordered to fight all men until they say, 'There is no god but Allah,' " Muhammad proclaimed in his farewell address to his followers in AD 632.

Countless Muslims since then have followed the path of jihad — literally, "exertion in the path of Allah" but usually taken as an injunction for waging holy war. But countless Muslims also have been willing to trade with unbelievers, to live peaceably alongside them, to learn from them and even to enter into military alliances with them against Muslim rivals.

Religions are not monolithic. They have no fixed, eternal identity. Until the 18th century, Christianity was a militant faith whose adherents did not hesitate to kill "heathens." Throughout the Middle Ages, Islamic states usually offered greater tolerance to religious minorities and were more open to secular learning than their Christian neighbors.

Even now, most Muslim countries — from Senegal to Indonesia — are far more pluralistic and much less fundamentalist than Iran or Saudi Arabia. And even in the most militant Muslim societies, clerics are able to maintain a rigid orthodoxy only by force. Left to their own devices, the Saudi or Iranian people would opt for a less monastic existence — a danger that the guardians of official morality are keenly aware of.

The real enemy we face is not Islam per se but a violent offshoot known as Islamism, which is rooted, to be sure, in the Koran but which also finds inspiration in such modern Western ideologies as fascism, Nazism and communism. Its most successful exponents — from Hassan Banna and Sayyid Qutb to Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini and Osama bin Laden — are hardly orthodox interpreters of Islam. They are power-mad intellectuals in the mold of a Lenin or a Hitler. The problem is that the rest of the Muslim world, by not doing more to curb the radicals — whether out of fear or sympathy — lends credence to the most objectionable caricatures of their faith.

Which culture would any decent person rather live in?

Well said from, the hate america, blame america whiners should go live in Saudi Arabia!

A while back I posted a short essay which entirely disproved the idiotic Leftist notion of "USA CULTURAL Hegemony"; (CLICK HERE).

I will now demolish the Leftist idea of "USA Political Hegemony" - just by comparing the nations said to be under USA hegemony the last 50 years to the nations under Soviet of Jihadist hegemony.

All the nations under so-called USA hegemony expanded their human rights and their prosperity under USA influence and protection - while those under Soviet or Jihadist hegemony had less and less liberty, and became poorer and poorer - (until the whole shebang collapsed!):
Western Europe was better for people than Eastern Europe; South Korea was better for people than North Korea; Japan and the Philipines and Taiwan and Singapore - and South Vietnam and Thailand - were better for people than China and Cambodia and Laos. REPEAT: Hong Kong was better than China. Puerto Rico and the DR are better off than Cuba. Even India sucked until - like China - they abandoned Marxism and opened up to economic ties with the "evil greedy capitalistic USA!"

The last 2 decades of trade with the "evil greedy capitalistic " USA has lifted more Chinese out of poverty than the previous 5 decades of Marxist/Maoist idealism. We have exploited them right into the 21st century!
There is not a single solitary country which was under real USSR hegemony which did better than those under so-called "USA hegemony. " The walls were built to keep them in, not us out! The BOAT PEOPLE were fleeing Vietnam and Cuba, not San Diego or Boston!

And we didn't even EVER conscript their citizens, or tax the people in these "captive client states". In fact, the opposite is quite true: WE PAID EXTRA TAXES TO PROTECT THEM - WITH OUR CONSCRIPTS, OUR SOLDIERS, OUR BLOOD! We sacrificed for their freedom. That AIN'T "dominance"; that's humanistic heroism!

Noam Chomsky, and jerks like Chavez and Moore and Sheehan and Glover and Belafonte and Harkin who admire him, are just plain flat out wrong. TOTALLY FRIGGIN' WRONG.

The best thing for any nation the last 100 years was to become our ally.

AND NEVER FORGET THAT Saddam and Arafat and Assad and Khaddafy and Kim and Fidel - and MOST of the other real tyrants in the world who directly and indirectly threatened our national security (and the security of ourallies) - were supported by the USSR, NOT THE USA.

Sure: we tacitly supported Pinochet (and a few other unsavory authoritarians like Marcos) - but they were nothing compared to the Marxist tyrants. In fact, to this day Chile is one of the best economies in all of South America and it's a result of having been SAVED from Marxist tyranny and Soviet hegemony by PINOCHET!

So when you hear a Lefty start to whine about USA foreign policy over the last 50 years - or 50 months - and say that the USA is just doing the bidding of our power elite, the richest capitalist and industrialists (and Big Oil and Israel and Saudi Arabia) just tell them to STFU!

We are all very lucky to live in the (Culture) Civilization of the West

We are all very lucky to live in the (Culture) Civilization of the West
from Pajamas Media ^ | September 26, 2006 | Victor Davis Hanson


Why when leaving office did we hear little, if any, second guessing—much less criticism of their successors—from Gerry Ford, Ronald Reagan, or George Bush, Sr.—but lots of self-serving revisionism from Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton? Ford and the elder Bush, after all, were both defeated at the polls and might have voiced hurt at their fates?

In contrast, Carter and Clinton, as self-appointed moral censors, have a bad habit of campaigning for international approval (remember Carter’s embarrassing lobbying for the Nobel Prize) by ankle-biting current American Presidents, and by extension their very alma mater. It was forgotten in the repulsion over Carter’s smug 2003 wartime criticism of George W. Bush, that after 9/11 Clinton lectured the world on American sins dating back to William Tecumseh Sherman, praised Iranian democracy, and from time to time went off on “right wingers.”

Three explanations explain this postpartum ex-presidential depression: one, the country has moved steadily rightward—Congress, the Presidency, the Supreme Court, and state governments. So much of the whining is from the out-of-power, know-it-all and self-anointed, who, like precious wounded fawns, resent deeply their perceived wounds and lick publicly their scrapes.

Second, there is a lot of acclaim and money to be made by jetting around the globe, finger-pointing about right-wing insensitivity, the environment (so much for the ecological consequences of flying on private planes), third-world poverty, and American hubris.

Third, we are nearing an election, and a blow-up by Clinton can be passed off as yelling out “truth to power” as an out-of-office, unapologetic Democrat takes on “Fox News,” thereby galvanizing the true believers. Clinton as either truthful or without resources is, of course, laughable; but then so were his other roles as serious historian, global humanitarian, lip-biting empopath, professorial wonk, and sensual, caring alpha-male. He is what he is—a half-grown-up, but canny chameleon, blessed with considerable skills at the impromptu rant and instant repartee, with a sharp mind and little real knowledge that ensure he has a veneer of impressive knowledge about an inch thick.

Leftwing politics and hyper-privilege are a bad mix, winning hypocrisy as an additional wage to self-righteous impracticality—as we see from the likes of a John and Mrs. Kerry, George Soros, and Ted Turner.

The truth? Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton are both small-minded men, with a wide mean streak. And for all the smiles and deference to folksy Protestant religion, they display an un-Christian vindictiveness that makes us happy they are not in office. A psychiatrist would diagnose all sorts of neuroses of compensation and projection, their psyches finding overt ways of balancing (and hiding) some very dark emotions. When Clinton leaned over to Chris Wallace and ranted about his smirk, I was reminded of the deified Carter promising to kick Ted Kennedy’s ass and telling the world in 1988 that George Bush, Sr. was effeminate.

Will Latin American Politics Follow Illegal Aliens?

Hugo Chavez’s primordial rant, the antics of Evo Morales, the likelihood of a Sandinista victory, along with noises from the recent Mexican election and near insurrection in Oaxaca, should remind us that Latin America, for all its natural riches and hard-won democracies, is still dysfunctional.

Its poverty, as in the Arab world, is too often blamed on Yanquis, gringos, and foreigners, rather than the lack of property rights, transparent government, personal freedom, the rule of law, and open markets.

And this anger frames the entire ongoing debate over illegal immigration in new and disturbing ways. Does the United States really wish to allow in over a million illegal aliens per year, who flee the chaos south of the border, but not necessarily the endemic anger that someone else is responsible for their misery rather than their culture at large? In concrete fact, of course, aliens know that something north of the border results in a system of wealth, security, and freedom, but in romance they often cling to the notion that an oppressive foreign way of doing things owes them what they cannot obtain—as we see not just voiced in marches of illegal aliens, but in the antics of the open borders lobbyists and politicians here in the United States.

Move the UN?

Is there any reason for the United Nations to stay in New York? The combination of its affluence and celebrity-driven culture draws in an odious international cadre, one that hates the United States (witness the applause for Chavez) as much as it enjoys living here. Surely it could move to Nigeria, Dafur, Cuba, or Venezuela, where its sensitive membership would be closer to real problems, well away from the television studios and five-star restaurants? Once again, privilege and left-wing piety are a bad combo.

When Not Enough is Too Much

One of the most disturbing facets of the current war is the sinking realization that we are not fully mobilized against Islamic fascism, that we underplay its dangers—even as we are damned for being Islamophobes.

The Pope incident is a prime example of how the world should be outraged that Muslims are issuing threats and promises of retribution against someone who in academese referred to age-old Islamic propensities for violence. Instead, Europe scrambled to apologize.

What to do about such a syndrome? We saw it in the 1930s when Europe tried to appease Hitler when it should have been building far more tanks. It is indeed an entirely human phenomenon that when we confront a reality too awful to contemplate—that a large part of the world hates Western liberality for what it is rather than anything it has done, and has the wealth and thus soon the means to act on that venom—we construct mental escapes of denial, appeasement, and obsequiousness, turning on each other for insensitivity rather than on the perpetrators for their hate.

Let us hope that there is not another 9/11 which would shatter such a glass edifice rather quickly, but instead pray that the public can be educated about the danger and the unique exceptionalism of its culture of the West, which after all, is really humankind’s last and only hope.

The Benevolence of the West

Throughout these last crazy weeks, I have been struck by Western tolerance and benevolence. Can you imagine, as Pakistan’s Musharref does, a President Bush publishing his book in Pakistan and then touring the Hindu Kush, hawking its message of criticism of his host to local tribes?

Or can you imagine, thousands in the street in the US or Europe, chanting ‘Death to Islam’ over the latest theocratic rant from Iran or Saudi Arabia?

Or better yet, imagine how 15,000 American Christian students would be treated in Saudi Arabia, had 15 Americans blown up 3,000 Saudis.

Or contemplate enormous Christian Churches being built by expatriate Americans in Riyadh?

Or what if the Pope thought the Islamic exclusion of infidels from Mecca was a good idea worth emulating, and thus no non-Christians could enter either Rome or the Vatican? The West really is the world’s life raft, and that is why immigration—civilization’s precious barometer of men’s innermost thoughts—always flows from East to West, never vice versa

The culture of truth vs. lies which fuel denial and conspiracy theories

Spain Former PM: "The West did not attack Islam, it was they who attacked us"
from ^ | Published: 09/25/2006 12:00 AM (UAE)

Madrid: Jose Maria Aznar, former Spanish prime minister, defended Pope Benedict XVI’s comments about Islam, saying on Friday the pontiff had no need to apologise and asking why Muslims never did. the Spanish media said yesterday.

“Why do we always have to say sorry and they never do?” Aznar told a conference in Washington on “global threats” on Friday.

On Saturday, European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso was quoted as saying that more European leaders should have spoken out in support of the Pope after he made his disputed comments on Islam.

"I was disappointed there were not more European leaders who said 'naturally the Pope has the right to express his views'," Barroso was quoted as saying to the Welt am Sonntag newspaper.

"The problem is not the statements of the Pope but the reaction of the extremists," the paper quoted him as saying.

Referring to the Moorish conquest of much of the Iberian Peninsula from the eighth to the 15th century, Aznar said: “It is interesting to note that while a lot of people in the world are asking the Pope to apologise for his speech, I have never heard a Muslim say sorry for having conquered Spain and occupying it for eight centuries.”

Aznar, who was the Prime Minister from 1996 to 2004, took Spain into the American-led war in Iraq, against massive public opposition.

Addressing Friday’s conference in Washington on “global threats”, Aznar said: “We are living in a time of war ... It’s them or us. The West did not attack Islam, it was they who attacked us.”

“We must face up to an Islam that is ambitious, that is radical and that influences the Muslim world, a fundamentalist Islam that we must confront because we don’t have any choice.

“We are constantly under attack and we must defend ourselves,” he said.

“I support Ferdinand and Isabella,” he proclaimed, in reference to the medieval Catholic monarchs who drove the Moors out of Spain in 1492.

The culture of opera has lost it's legendary freedom

Berlin- One of Germany's leading opera houses, Deutsche Oper Berlin, announced Monday that it was cancelling a controversial production because of the likelihood that it might offend Muslims. The original opera, Idomeneo by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, makes no reference to Islam, but director Hans Neuenfels introduced a scene to his production that depicts the decapitated heads of the Prophet Mohammed, Jesus Christ, the Buddha and the Greek god Poseidon.
It caused outrage at the premiere in 2003. The opera company said it was cancelling plans to revive the show next month after advice from security authorities in Berlin that the performances posed an "incalculable" security risk.

The culture of islam will kill musicians and is against most music

Islamic group threatens to "physically resist" music classes at Punjab University
Instrumental music is automatically an issue under sharia law due to the dictates of Muhammad. For example:

Narrated Abu 'Amir or Abu Malik Al-Ash'ari:
that he heard the Prophet saying, "From among my followers there will be some people who will consider illegal sexual intercourse, the wearing of silk, the drinking of alcoholic drinks and the use of musical instruments, as lawful. And there will be some people who will stay near the side of a mountain and in the evening their shepherd will come to them with their sheep and ask them for something, but they will say to him, 'Return to us tomorrow.' Allah will destroy them during the night and will let the mountain fall on them, and He will transform the rest of them into monkeys and pigs and they will remain so till the Day of Resurrection." (Bukhari 007.069.494v)
In addition, if the subject of Western music is to arise at all at Punjab University, its early history is inextricably linked to the Catholic liturgy and clergy, including at the time of the Crusades. Not to mention the time spent on Lutheran chorales in the instruction of music theory. Clearly, this could pose a problem.

Sharia Alert from The Daily Times: "Punjab University hires British music professor"

LAHORE: Punjab University has hired a British professor, Cambridge-graduate William Keith Timmney, and other international musicians to teach at the Department of Musicology despite threats by conservative elements, officials told Daily Times.
The department has received hundreds of admission applications for the two-year Master’s programme in Music and classes for the maiden batch will begin on October 6. Theory classes will be held at the old campus of Punjab University (PU) and practical classes will be held at Alhamra.
PU Registrar Professor Dr Naeem Khan has said the faculty was hired despite threats and pressure put by "anti-education elements" such as Islami Jamiat Talaba (IJT).
"We have initiated the academic programme strictly for promotion of culture of our region," he said, "and will not let anyone impose their opinion over the majority." He said the university was "prepared to deal with miscreants".
He said the administration and the vice chancellor had envisioned the Musicology Department in response to demands by students and to promote the legacy of Muslim mystics such as Ameer Khusro, Khawaja Moeenuddin Chishti, Khushhal Khan Khatak and folksinger Pathanay Khan.
"We have started a Master’s programme initially, and Bachelor’s classes will follow soon," the registrar said. The programme was not meant to promote vulgarity, he said, "but to promote our culture internationally." The department will be part of the Institute of Art and Design (IAD) in the beginning, he said, but would become independent later. The IJT has already threatened to "physically resist" music classes on campus and threatened the administration with dire consequences against programmes for performing arts.

Italy gets the importance of cultural assimilation

From IPS:

Muslims Offered Italian Values
Analysis by Federico Bordonaro

ROME, Sep 25 (IPS) - Interior Minister Giuliano Amato proposed in August that Muslim organisations in Italy will need to subscribe to a Charter of Values to signal their readiness to be fully integrated into Italian society and its political culture.

Rome is facing a huge challenge: it cannot fail to integrate its increasingly numerous Muslim immigrant population, but since integration policies in Europe are regarded as less than successful, it is forced to seek new solutions...snip.....

Teaching hatred and death to children is a cultural abomination

the Herald Sun

AFGHAN President Hamid Karzai has urged the world to put an end to Islamic schools that teach hatred and produce suicide bombers.
Madrassas, or Islamic schools, are "teaching hatred rather than religion, (teaching) that some people we must hate, that some people we must destroy," Mr Karzai said on the eve of summits with the US and Pakistan.

He said it "will take a lot of sacrifice from Afghans, and from the rest of the world . . . to get rid of those places who . . . in the name of religious schools . . . are actually training suicide bombers against us".

Mr Karzai also said neighbouring Pakistan must find the political will to eliminate terrorist breeding grounds if Afghanistan is to know peace. He said other nations had to pressure them to do so.

"We have to convince them that it is not in their interest, that it is going to hurt all of us eventually," he was quoted as saying.

Lebanese Christian American Warns Of Islamofascist Culture

Because They Hate

Lebanese Christian American Warns Of Islamofascist Culture
from ^ | 09/25/06 | Jamie Glazov

Brigitte Gabriel

FP: Brigitte Gabriel, welcome back to Frontpage Interview.

Gabriel: Thank you Jamie. It is always a pleasure working with you.

FP: So what inspired this new book?

Gabriel: Radical Islam’s modern war of world domination has been picking up momentum with its universal colophony of “Allahu Akbar” accompanying each act of terror and destruction.

Today, radical Islam’s war rages in varying degrees of intensity throughout the world, not just against Christians and Jews in the west, but also against Hindus, Buddhists, Copts, indeed all non-Muslim “infidels”, Their degree of zealotry even has them attacking other denominations within Islam itself. Islamic radicals are instigating and perpetuating terrorist campaigns, insurgencies, civil wars, minority suppression, ethnic cleansing and/or genocide in Afghanistan, Algeria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Chad, Chechnya, Dagestan, Denmark, Egypt, Ethiopia, France, Gambia, Great Britain, India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Kashmir, Kenya, Kosovo, Lebanon, Macedonia, Mali, Mauritania, Morocco, Netherlands, Niger, Nigeria, Pakistan, territories administered by the “Palestinian Authority,” Philippines, Qatar, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Somalia, Spain, Sudan, Syria, Tanzania, Thailand, Tunisia, Turkey, The United States of America, Yemen, and Zanzibar. The rest of the world is held hostage to fear.

This book is part my personal story and my observations. It is written in the hope that Americans and the west will recognize this eminent threat to their way of life and make the correct philosophical, legal, governmental policy and militarily decisions to protect themselves and our civilization before it is too late.

FP: I am sorry to raise a very painful subject, but can you kindly relate to us a bit about how you lost your childhood to militant Islam.

Gabriel: I was born into Paris of the Middle East, the Arab world’s jewel on the Mediterranean. Lebanon's geography encompasses both pristine beaches and snowcapped mountains, and most of the time Lebanon has an ideal Mediterranean climate. Lebanon was the most westernized Arabic speaking country in the Middle East, its citizens the most cultured and educated.

This natural beauty that filled and blessed our lives would fall prey to an ugliness of hate and animosity in 1975, when South Lebanon, where I lived, became a bloody battleground.

The Muslims and Palestinian declared war on the Christians and started killing us. They bombed my home in trying to take over our town. I was ten years old when my home exploded around me burying me under the rubble as the perpetrators shouted Allahu Akbar. I was wounded and spend two and half month in and out of a hospital for treatment. My father became deaf and lost all our lifesavings in the bombing. I had to live in an 8 by 10 bomb shelter for seven years of my life between 1975 and 1982 in pitch darkness for lack of electricity, freezing cold for lack of heat. I had to drink stale water which I collected from a near by spring crawling on my stomach in a ditch dodging sniper bullets. We had very little food, and resorted to collecting grass and vegetation that grew around the bomb shelter to eat. I was 13 yeas old when I dressed in my burial clothes going to bed at night waiting to be slaughtered, and by the age of 20 I had buried most of my friends who were killed by radical Muslims.

FP: In your book you discuss how radical Islam spread from the Middle East throughout the world and how the west failed to connect the dots. Please tell us about that.

Gabriel: As news anchor for World News, I realized there was a form of repetition developing with every broadcast I did. The same story but different actors: hijackings, car bombs and Muslims fighting non Muslims was the news. The only differences were the locations, the vehicles used and the names of the perpetrators and their victims. The names of the terrorists became all too familiar and similar. Muhammad, Ahmed, Hussein, Ali were nothing but a repeat of Islamic names of Muslim youth who had been brain washed with hatred and bigotry towards the infidels. They were always shouting "Allahu Akbar," the Moslem call to prayer, as their trademark celebratory cry for murder and glory as they slaughtered, killed, blew up, maimed or behead non Muslims.

The names of the targets or the kidnapped people were usually western: Terry Anderson, Terry Waite, Lt. Col. William Higgins, Pan Am flights, TWA, the Achille Lauro. I began to see how the Middle East was dragging the world down into a war of ideologies based on religious hatred and bigotry. I began to understand that what I and the Christians were going through in Lebanon that I thought was just a regional conflict was becoming a world wide conflict with international implications.

America and the west found an excuse for every incident and boxed and labeled it under the context of the country in which it took place. They attributed Iran’s conflict and the victory of Ayatollah Khomeini to an inner conflict within Iran. They attributed the Lebanese war to being a civil war among factions. They attributed the overall Arab/Israeli conflict as being just a Palestinian verses Israeli conflict over land. Yet in all these conflicts radical Islam was the driving force or lingered just under the surface. My book Because They Hate offers a list of Islamic/Arabic aggression leading up to 9/11 while the west neglected to connect the dots.

FP: What are the West’s weaknesses in its confrontation with this new enemy?

Gabriel: America never seems to learn the danger of letting your enemy think that you are weak, asleep or careless. America sent message after message to the Islamists that while America posses the most superior weapons of war, it does not posses the resolve or the will to follow through till victory. America proved it when it withdrew from Lebanon after the marines were bombed and after it didn't finish the job in Iraq the first time around during the gulf war. Ever since that signal was sent, the Islamists ratcheted up their attacks and the United States slept through every attack on our basis and interests overseas. They hijacked TWA flight 847, as well as the cruise ship Achille Lauro in 1985. They bombed another TWA flight as well as hijacked Pan Am flight 73 in 1986. They bombed another Pan Am flight 103 in 1988. They bombed a military compound in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia in 1995. The Khobar Towers also in Saudi Arabia 1996. They also bombed The USS Cole in Yemen in 2000.

So what signal did the United States send to the Islamic terrorists during eight years of the Clinton administration? For eight years the United States military defense budget was depleted. For eight years the US government was a social development center of political correctness, political corruption and arrogance while the Chinese stole our military secrets. The United States was in the middle of a slumber party while the Islamists were organizing, training, recruiting and infiltrating our country and counting on our blindness, carelessness and ignorance. They knew that the leadership was busy with sexual scandals instead of building our military, building our intelligence, increasing America's defense and staying on the lookout for anyone wishing our country harm.

Our anti military attitude as a nation and our cowardly responses to terrorists empowered our enemy to strengthen, grow, acquire weapons, and scientists and place Islamic terrorists right here in our midst living, and learning flight lessons, to begin our destruction.

FP: Tell us about terrorist cells in America.

Gabriel: Terrorist networks have set up shop in America. They took their time watching our reaction, learning our weaknesses, learning how to use our system and studying our immigration system and how it works. America has focused on Al Qaeda only as the most threatening group du jour and America's number one enemy. This is a grave mistake. Al Qaeda is nothing more than a melting pot of Islamists from different countries and various Islamic militant groups that share their hatred for and ideology against the West. Intelligence classified reports show evidence that Hamas, the terrorist organization that most Americans believe is Israel's problem, and Hezbollah, whom most Americans believe is a Lebanese problem, have both established cells in the United States and networks with al Qaeda to perpetrate suicide bombings in American cities. The Muslim Brotherhood is also active in the United States.

America's problems with terrorist infiltration stem from its large porous borders with Canada and Mexico. Our Canadian border stretches more than 4000 miles while the Mexican one is about 2000 miles long. Almost half these borders are unpopulated areas and are not patrolled. Thousand of terrorists can get in undetected. The Mexican border poses the most dangerous threat where non Mexicans - called the politically correct word OTM (other than Mexicans) - are being snuck into our country by the notorious Mexican MS 13 gang. It is estimated that thousands of sleeper agents have been smuggled into the country illegally through the Mexican border alone. Many sources within the FBI believe that these terrorists are here in America raising funds and working on logistics, waiting for the opportunity to strike within the United States. Many of them have received training in Lebanon, Syria, Pakistan and Afghanistan.

The majority of these terror cells are made up of Muslim immigrants from Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, and most Middle Eastern Muslim countries who have families, relatives or friends residing in the United States and came in the country legally. However some of these cells include members who are U.S.-born American Muslim citizens. They are strongly established in Muslim communities working and running small businesses under the radar where they can have meetings, recruit sympathizers, offer videos, Arabic magazines and publications that entice hatred of anything western and glamorizes Jihad fe samil el lah, jihad for Allah. All this while able to raise funds for their cause under the cover of Islamic charities and foundations.

FP: How about the mosques in America? What role do many of them play in controlling radical ideology in their communities?

Gabriel: Sadly Jamie, the mosques around the world are a part of the problem instead of being a part of the solution. A recent report by Freedom House/Center For Religious Freedom clearly reveals the toxic tsunami of religious hatred that Saudi Arabia has unleashed here in the United States. The entire report can be found on line.

In compiling the report, the center studied over 200 books and publications collected from more than a dozen of the most prominent mosques and Islamic institutions in the United States, including those in Washington, DC, New York, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Los Angeles and Oakland. All of these books and publications were financed and produced directly or indirectly by the Saudi government. Some of the books were texts from Islamic schools. Some were publications issued by the Saudi government specifically to provide guidance to Muslims living in or visiting the United States.

In their relations with all non-Muslims, these Saudi books and publications repeatedly exhort Muslims to “hate them for their religion,”- meaning us infidels - to “hate…for Allah’s sake”, “…always oppose them in every way…”, maintain a “wall of resentment” against them. They say that Democracy is “responsible for all of the horrible wars" of the 20th Century and that “attractive names like democracy, …justice, freedom, brotherhood and equality" cause all of the world’s problems.

They say that all religions but Islam are false, and that it is the religious duty of every Muslim to impose “functionally Islamic governments” on every country in the world. This religious duty is “binding in principle, in law, in self-defense, in community, and as a sacred obligation of jihad.” In order to fulfill this “sacred obligation of jihad”, they must invade its western heartland, and struggle to overcome it until all the world shouts by the name of the Prophet [Mohammad] and the teachings of Islam spread throughout the world. Only then will Muslims achieve their fundamental goal….[A]ll religion will be exclusively for Allah.

This type of education presents a major problem when we are trying to control the radical in our Muslim communities.

FP: How can the U.S. and the West prevail in this war?

Gabriel: Our Government needs to take stronger action not only against those persons who seek to destroy us, but also against those individuals who impede our fight on the war on terrorism, well-intended or not. Tougher laws must be implemented that protect our right to life and liberty, and if that means a declaration of war putting other rights on hold for a while, so be it! As I have learned from my own life’s experiences, nothing in life is free, especially freedom. In my opinion here are several initiatives that I believe will protect us in the homeland.

- Close our borders

- Reform the Immigration and naturalization service (INS):

- Increase human intelligence

- Profile, Profile and Profile

- Control education of foreign students of hostile countries

- Develop alternative energy sources

- Silence any teaching of hate and intolerance against our country

In the book I offer suggestions as to what the average person can do to fight terrorism and what everyday American and westerner can do to protect our communities and defend our nations.

Our willingness as a nation to support our intelligence community and provide them with whatever laws that will enable them to track and infiltrate cells in America will determine our demise or survival. The tragedy of September the 11th could be the end of terrorism on American soil or the beginning of the end of American civilization.

"Jihad" car commercial upsets Muslims
Reuters ^ | 09/24/06 | Reuters

CINCINNATI (Reuters) - A car commercial proclaiming a jihad on the U.S. auto market and offering "Fatwa Fridays" with free swords for the kids is offensive and should not be aired, Muslim leaders said on Sunday.

The radio advertisement for the Dennis Mitsubishi car dealership in Columbus, Ohio, has "a whole jihad theme," said Adnan Mirza, director of the Columbus office of the Council on American-Islamic Relations.

"They are planning on launching a jihad on the automotive market and their representatives would be wearing burqas ... ," Mirza said. "They mentioned the pope in there and also about giving rubber swords out to the kiddies -- really just reprehensible-type comments."

Details of the radio ad, which has not yet been broadcast, have been reported in the local media, but officials at the dealership declined to comment about the content of the radio spot.

Two employees at the dealership said they had been deluged with calls about the commercial.

"The ad has never been released, it is not out for public listening," said one employee who declined to give his name. He would not say whether the dealership had changed its mind about airing the commercial.

Tokyo-based Mitsubishi Motors Corp. could not immediately be reached for comment.

Mirza said several local radio stations had already rejected the ad and he hoped the controversy would convince the dealership to rethink its sales strategy.

He also said the Council on American-Islamic Relations would likely contact the dealer to "offer some kind of cultural or sensitivity awareness training."

Polygamy wears many hats, but wherever it's practiced, it is all about exploitation, semi-slavery, and is a cultural nightmare:

Arrest exposes sect's slave-like polygamy trade

[snip - Getty image]

Normally a person’s religious beliefs are no one else’s business.

Unless, of course, it leads to the terrorist act that kills thousands of people in the collapse of two skyscrapers, or in the killing of dozens of others in subway bombings, hotel bombings, railroad bombings and international wars.

Or it involves organized child abuse and welfare fraud.

Then it’s everybody else’s business - or should be.

The religious beliefs of Warren Jeffs became big news last week when he was arrested on charges of rape and interstate flight, following a long nationwide search for the man whose mug was on the FBI’s 10 Most Wanted List.

His followers "pretty much have to renounce their entire heritage to go against the prophet," the Arizona attorney general said last week. "That has got to be hard to do."

It might be easier now that their prophet - who teaches his clan that he is above the law of man and is, in effect, a god - has been exposed.

Now that he is escorted in handcuffs and wears a jailer’s blue jump suit, he even looks less like a prophet than when he wore his traditional dark suit and tie.

He also might have some explaining to do, if he ever has the chance, about his traveling attire. He was wearing a pair of shorts and a T-shirt when he was arrested on a highway outside Las Vegas - a violation of the dress code he imposes on his flock.

And what about all those women’s wigs in his luggage?

For the moment, though, Jeffs has more problems than straightening out his Scripture with his congregation in the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints - a weird sect not to be confused with the mainline Mormon Church.

He is facing long prison terms in three states for his polygamist behavior: marrying underage girls and arranging for adolescent females, some as young as 13, to marry middle-aged men. He’s also under investigation for massive welfare fraud, managing a network of "married" mothers to collect single-parent state payments..snip.....

Statement from President Bush "I didn't even know the Pope was Jewish"

Iraq has demanded that the pope issue a statement of apology for a statement he made linking Islam to violence. Well where did the Pope get THAT crazy idea from, HUH? I'm STUNNED!

Well maybe the apology will stop the church burnings and the "Death to the Pope" chants

And I thought this was nice: today the Pope got a "Pick Me Up" bouquet from Salman Rushdie...He told him "Hang in there, these people don't hold a grudge...this will blow over in 30-40 years, you'll be fine

By David Blair

Police in Iran's capital, Teheran, have stopped almost 64,000 women and warned them against breaching strict Muslim dress codes in the last month alone.

The authorities have chosen the height of summer for a new crackdown to ensure that women cover their heads with veils and their bodies with long, heavy overcoats whenever they can be seen in public.

Why cultural values drive civilization

"The general noted that the enemy has no such values." From the American Forces Press Service, with thanks to Jeffrey Imm:

WASHINGTON, Sept. 21, 2006 – Much has been made in recent days of an aerial photograph taken in Afghanistan that reportedly shows hundreds of Taliban fighters attending a funeral and the decision to refrain from wiping out the gathering militarily.
At a Pentagon news conference today, the commander of coalition forces in Afghanistan said the rules of engagement provide all the flexibility needed to take the fight to the enemy and to protect coalition forces, but the decision in this case was not as simple as it might appear to be.

Army Lt. Gen. Karl Eikenberry said the intelligence available to the coalition commander on the ground did, indeed, support the belief that the gathering was for the funeral of a mid-level Taliban operative. “It was also reasonable to believe that, as he looked down at that photograph or looked down at the video, that a number of the people that were standing there at that funeral were Taliban fighters,” the general added.

But it’s what the picture didn’t show that ultimately led to the decision not to strike, Eikenberry said. Just outside the frame, he said, was an Afghan village.

“And it also was reasonable for the commander to conclude from that village that there were probably innocents -- maybe sympathetic to Taliban, but innocents, noncombatants -- that had moved to participate in that funeral,” the general said. And the photo couldn’t rule out the possible presence of women and children, he added.

“So that commander made a decision, based upon our values as a people, based upon our values as a nation, that he would not strike,” Eikenberry said.

The general noted that the enemy has no such values.

“I would point out to everybody that (the coalition commander’s decision not to strike the funeral gathering) stands in very sharp contrast to an enemy that will kill religious leaders wantonly, that will kill teachers in order to intimidate parents to keep their children out of school houses, that will -- as they proved themselves last week -- throw a suicide-bomber at a patriotic governor of Afghanistan who came from his home in Australia to serve his nation. That's what distinguishes us from the enemy,” he said.

Paintballing for Allah--The new cutting-edge method of training for jihad.

from ^ | 9-22-06 | Joe Kaufman and Laura Mansfield

Recently a video was placed on the forum of the official website of the Young Muslims (YM) – the youth arm of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) – whose contents included an animated graphic of rockets being fired on and destroying the United States and a 9/11 message from “the American Al Qaeda,” Adam Gadahn. Both the rockets and the message had been released prior, produced by Al-Qaeda’s media studio, Al-Sahab, and shown on Al-Jazeera TV. But something else found on the video was previously unseen. It was footage from a paintball range located in the United States. The suggestive images within the footage could easily be construed as training for terrorist attacks. No doubt, for Muslim extremists throughout the West, this has become the preferred method of preparation for waging jihad....snip.........

Cultural problem with disasterous future potential

The most vulnerable of our young males are being brainwashed into becoming zombie mass murderers

Study: Prisons Used to Recruit Terrorists
Associated Press ^ | 09/19/06

U.S. prisons are becoming major breeding grounds for Islamic terrorists, but state and local authorities are too cash-strapped to prevent or track recruiting, a new report concludes.

The report, to be released Tuesday, found there aren't enough legitimately trained Muslim religious leaders to counsel an estimated 9,000 U.S. prison inmates who want Islamic services. That allows Islamist extremists to target their vulnerable prison-mates with distorted versions of the Quran and other Muslim readings that urge radicalization and violence.

"Radicalized prisoners are a potential pool of recruits by terrorist groups," concludes the joint study by George Washington University and the University of Virginia. "The U.S., with its large prison population, is at risk of facing the sort of homegrown terrorism currently plaguing other countries."

Additionally, state and local prison officials struggle to track radical behavior changes of inmates or religious counselors. And staff and funding shortages limit preventative programs, the report found, noting that California officials "report that every investigation into radical groups in their prisons uncovers new leads, but they simply do not have enough investigators to follow every case of radicalization."

An estimated 2 million people are imprisoned in the United States; 6 percent of them are Muslim, according to the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

Prisons have long been considered recruiting stations for gangs and, more recently, terrorists, but little has been done throughout government to combat them. The report, which will be released at a Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee hearing, comes as law enforcement and intelligence officials focus on finding out how and why extremist sympathizers cross a line to become operational terrorists.

The report cited several high-profile cases of terrorists who became radicalized while incarcerated, including British shoe bomber Richard Reid. It also noted what authorities call a foiled plot of a potential shooting rampage against California military facilities, synagogues and the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles by followers of Kevin James, who founded the radical group Jamiyyat Ul-Islam Is-Saheeh, or JIS, as an inmate at California State Prison in Sacramento.

Researchers interviewed federal, state and local prison officials, religious counselors and counterterror authorities in four states California, New York, South Carolina and Ohio and the District of Columbia. They concluded that federal prison authorities have made significant strides in collecting and sharing information to help monitor whether inmates are becoming radicalized.

But state and local prison officials have largely relied on contractors and volunteers to lead Islamic services because of a lack of well-trained Muslim chaplains, the report found. In New York, that led to several cases of "imams espousing violent views," it said.

The report noted a 2004 study that found that about half of 193 prisons surveyed supervised religious services or monitored them with video or audio recorders. "In the absence of monitoring by authoritative Islamic chaplains, materials that advocate violence have infiltrated the prison system undetected," it found.

Daveed Gartenstein-Ross, a counterterrorism consultant, said "chilling" interpretations of the Quran were given to prison inmates when he worked for the al-Haramain Islamic Foundation, an international charity that served as a major al-Qaida financier.

The readings urged Muslims "to wage war against non-Muslims who have not submitted to Islamic rule," Gartenstein-Ross said in prepared testimony to the Senate panel, obtained Tuesday by The Associated Press.

"I know of only a few instances in which prisons rejected the literature we attempted to distribute and it was never because of the literature's radicalism," said Gartenstein-Ross, who left the charity and converted to Christianity before the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

Al-Haramain also created a database of names, release dates and forwarding addresses of 15,000 inmates considered to be ripe for recruitment, but it was never used, he said.

Islam is in danger from cultural brutality


Islam is in danger

By Farid N. Ghadry
September 21, 2006

The recent brouhaha surrounding Pope Benedict XVI comments on Islam delivered in Germany should give Muslims a pause. Not one that would conjure the recalcitrant attacks that we have seen recently but rather one that would question why such a prominent religious leader would utter these words.
What the Pope said allows me, as a Muslim, to ponder self-examination and not rush into a reaction of condemnation.
Islam, throughout its history, delivered its share of great minds to humanity during times of peace and prosperity. Scientists like Mohammad al-Khawarizmi who invented Algebra and Avicenna who contributed greatly to medicine lived in an era of "political prestige, financial power, and intellectual pursuit with Baghdad as the epicenter" as Saadia Iqbal described it in a National Geographic article. We Muslims, in another era, built our own great and peaceful civilization that ushered the prosperity wished upon any people of any race in any religion.
But Islam of today differs from the Islam of yesterday. Instead of a thriving era of the Abbasids, we are experiencing a terrorist era of Wahhabism.
Wahabbism is an obscure strand of Islam with fanatical followers who remained "out of sight and out of mind" until Saudi Arabia struck it rich with oil. Hungry economies saw it fit to submit to the Wahabbis and their protectors, the al-Saud clan, rather than confront their danger. But this came with a price.
It was oil that financed 15 Saudis to attack the United States on September 11 and it is Wahhabism today that is militarizing Islam. Unlike the prosperous Abbasid era, the Wahhabi era is confrontational, fanatic, and universal because of undue influence by Saudi Arabia. That influence is justified, in the eyes of Muslims, because Saudi Arabia is the Guardian of the Two Holy Cities of Makkah and Medina.
The radicalism of Wahhabi Islam demands a concerted effort by moderate Muslims and Muslim nations alike if ever Islam is to survive to usher another era of peace and prosperity. To succeed, we must chart a strategy to wrestle control of Makkah and Medina from the hands of the 5 million extremist Najd-bred Wahhabis and trust these two Holy Cities to an International Council of Muslim Nations with the country of Jordan as the host. In other words, we need to vaticanize Islam.
Saudi Arabia's windfall profits from high demand for oil, at its present production, yield it an additional $500 million a day; excess funds are spent to spread Wahhabismworldwide in what were once moderate Muslim communities. Witness the power of Saudi Arabia, a country of 25 million people, in faraway places like Indonesia and Malaysia, two countries with hundreds of millions of Muslims, and the lack of influence of these moderate Muslim nations in the Arab world.
Every time a street demonstration erupts or an act of violence against other religions is committed, you can bet that the Saudi Wahhabis are behind it. Like Saddam used to gift $25,000 to every Palestinian family that sent its son to die needlessly by killing innocent people, the Wahhabis send money secretly to every Muslim community that erupts in violence.
These communities await a cartoon or simple words of truth to explode because they know well that following their public rant and rave, a Saudi contribution awaits them. What we are witnessing in those irrational acts is a new Muslim order controlled and managed by the Wahhabis with the intent on forcing their interpretation of Islam on Muslims and a Caliphate to crown their achievements. Where else do you think Osama bin Laden, Saudi-raised, got his ideas?
As a moderate Muslim living amongst Muslims, Christians, and Jews, I am asking myself what have we, Muslims, brought forth to today's civilizations that would appeal to other religions and prompt them to imitate us or praise us? We have but TV beheadings and barbaric killings of innocent people in the name of our great religion. Are we then surprised to hear other religious people with followers all around the world ask us, through factual history, why we are so violent?
The words of Pope Benedict should not be examined with scorn but with scrutiny. The respect that our Islam commands in the world today is diminishing because we have come to accept Wahhabi Jihad as normal behavior; this explains President Bush's message that abandoning us to ruthless dictatorships is breeding the divide all of us should fear.
If Pope Benedict infringed upon us with his words, it is because Wahhabism has infringed and continues to infringe upon his world with brutality. Unless moderate Muslims control their destiny, Islam is in danger and its lifespan in the Arab world mirrors the lifespan of oil in Saudi Arabia.

charges of adultery are routinely issued to women/girls who have been raped—and they are sentenced to death."
Stoning Women to Death
from the Village Voice ^ | September 17th, 2006 | Nat Hentoff

On June 29, 2006, a court in the Islamic Republic of Iran sentenced Malak Ghorbany, a 34-year-old mother of two, to a brutal death by stoning after finding her guilty of adultery. . . . Two men who were found guilty of murder in the same court were only given jail sentences of six years. . . . The size of the stones used during the execution are required to be . . . not so large that they would kill a woman too quickly, nor so small that they would fail to cause serious injury or pain . — A letter, unanswered, to George W. Bush from John Whitehead, head of the Rutherford Institute, one of the nation's premier civil liberties organizations. The part about the stones is from Article 104 of the Iranian penal code.

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the president of Iran, has become an international celebrity, brandishing his nuclear program—and his yearning to wipe Israel off the face of the earth. He is visited by such personages as U.N. secretary-general Kofi Annan and Mike Wallace of 60 Minutes. In their conversations with him, neither has asked the swashbuckling leader about "honor killings" by the government of women charged with having committed "adultery."

As human rights lawyer Lily Mazahery, president of the Legal Rights Institute reports, "in 99 percent of these cases, the accused women have received no legal representation because, under the Shariah legal system, their testimony is at best worth only half the value of the testimony of men."

And there is no single executioner. These are mass murders by stone-throwing members of the community, having the kind of festive time common among American mass lynchers of blacks, when the murderers brought their children to join in the fun. In Iran too, kids are present to witness the sinners' redemption.

The capital crime of adultery, Mazahery has explained to World Net Daily, "includes [under Shariah law] any type of intimate relationship between a girl/woman and a man to whom she is not permanently or temporarily married. Such a relationship does not necessarily mean a sexual relationship.

"Further, charges of adultery are routinely issued to women/girls who have been raped—and they are sentenced to death." (Their unpardonable crime is to have been raped.)

During the continuous coverage in this country of Iran's nuclear threat and its crucial support of terrorists in Iraq and elsewhere in the Middle East, there has been scarcely any mention of this horrifying dimension of the culture of Iran: sangsar, the stoning to death of women.

Mazahery, the Persian American lawyer whose mission has long been to save Iranian women from this and other brutal treatment, tells me that sangsar, "dating back to the dark ages," was, for a time, suspended by the pre-revolutionary regime due to pressure from international human rights organizations, combined with protests from civilized persons around the world. But when the mullahs took over in the 1979 revolution, they brought back Shariah law, and when this president came to power, he reinstituted public stonings, as a "religious principle," against women.

As of this writing, President Ahmadinejad is on his way to address the United Nations in New York. There will be heavy press coverage. Will any reporter ask him about the stoning of women in his country—and the particular case of Malak Ghorbany? And while former "moderate" Iranian president Mohammad Khatami has been in the United States—lecturing at Harvard, among other prestigious venues—I know of no reporter who has asked him to discourse on the stoning of women under his successor.

Mazahery, who was recently invited by students and faculty to respond to Khatami at Harvard, has written and circulated an online petition, "Save Malak Ghorbany From Death by Public Stoning," addressed to Kofi Annan; the U.N.'s commissioner of human rights; and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, leader of the Islamic Republic of Iran; as well as to the head of its judiciary, Ayatollah Mahmoud Shahroudi.

So far, there have been more than 11,000 signatories—from around the world, including this country, China, and most tellingly, Iran. For Iranians to sign took much courage. As Ali Afshari and Akbar Atri—founding members of Iranian Students for Democracy and Human Rights—revealed in the September 2–3 Wall Street Journal:

"Satellite dishes are being collected to cut off public access to the . . . news of the global community. Women's groups, labor organizations, and student groups are not permitted even the more peaceful acts of protest."

As a result, however, of growing international concern about Malak Ghorbany, partly from Mazahery's petition, the Islamic regime has stayed her execution until she gets a new trial. But as Mazahery points out, Iran has used this three-card-monte trick before. As she told World Net Daily: "It is quite possible the Islamic regime will schedule a rush sham trial and reissue the same sentence [and] even with a new trial, Ghorbany would still receive the same sentence or be sentenced to death by public hanging instead."

Young Children Fight U.S. Troops In Iraq (SICK STUFF!)
Monterey Herald via AP ^ | 9/19/06

BAGHDAD, Iraq - Shiite militias are encouraging children - some as young as 6 or 7 - to hurl stones and gasoline bombs at U.S. convoys, hoping to lure American troops into ambushes or provoke them into shooting back, U.S. soldiers say.
Gangs of up to 100 children assemble in Sadr City, stronghold of radical anti-American cleric Muqtada al-Sadr and his Mahdi Army militia, and in nearby neighborhoods, U.S. officers said in interviews this week.
American soldiers have seen young men, their faces covered by bandanas, talking with the children before the rock-throwing attacks begin - and sometimes handing out slingshots so the volleys will be more accurate, the troops said.
"It's like a militia operation. They'll mass rocks on the last or second-to-last vehicle" in a U.S. patrol, said Capt. Chris L'Heureux, 30, of Woonsocket, R.I. "There's no doubt in my mind that they're utilizing these kids in a deliberate, thought-out way."

multiculturalism, a policy that only feeds intolerance and misunderstanding by separating people into ethnic and racial

From a Canadian

The failure of multiculturalism
National Post ^ | 2006-08-25 | (editorial page)

Immediately following the most recent round of terrorism-related arrests in the United Kingdom, the government arranged a meeting with Muslim leaders to discuss how to best tackle extremism. Instead of offering up things that the Muslim community itself could do, the groups presented the government with a list of demands, including the introduction of Sharia law for family-law cases and public holidays to mark Muslim religious festivals. If their religious demands were met, the Muslim leaders argued, then they would be in a better position to disarm radicals. This is the cancer of multiculturalism in its advanced stages.

Given that polls show that many British Muslims want Britain to become an Islamic state, these are unlikely to be the final demands placed on the government by the Muslim community. As Michael Nazir-Ali, the Anglican Bishop of Rochester, said, "Given the world view that has given rise to such grievances, there can never be sufficient appeasement, and new demands will continue to be made."

Little wonder, then, that Tony Blair's government has announced the establishment of a Commission on Integration and Cohesion that will study the effect of multiculturalism policies that have for decades sought to downplay the notion of a British identity and culture in favour of a "fruitcake" approach to citizenship -- that is, a collection of ethnic and racial communities living separately side-by-side.

In unveiling the commission, Ruth Kelly, Britain's Communities Secretary, said as much explicitly, calling for an open debate on multiculturalism, uncensored by political correctness. Many Britons find no need for such a debate or any reason to wait for the commission's report. The Bishop of Rochester said a week ago, "The multiculturalism beloved by our political and civic bureaucracies has not only failed to deliver peace, but is the partial cause" of alienation and extremism. In the wake of the 7/7 terrorist bombings of London's subway system, and a series of terrorism scares in the year since, that view is now widely shared in the U.K. While everyone continues to mouth the usual platitudes about how Muslims and other immigrant communities can take pride in their traditions etc., etc., the firm belief of many is that they now must be compelled to assimilate into British society.

Britain has at last awoken to the dangers wrought by multiculturalism, a policy that only feeds intolerance and misunderstanding by separating people into ethnic and racial tribes, formalizing -- indeed celebrating -- divisions. Whether four decades of multi-culti indoctrination can be easily undone, and the cancer arrested, is another matter. It's a question Canadians must also face: With recent studies showing a growing pattern of ghettoization of racial and ethnic communities in Canada, and with our own homegrown terrorist plots, how long before this country is compelled to follow the British example and establish its own Commission on Integration?

America must face this growing problem with powerhouse leadership at a critical moment in history

Wearing of a bikini is not forced under threat of death!

Wearing of a bikini is not forced under threat of death! A big difference

Burkha or Bikini?
New English Review ^ | September 17, 2006 | by Mary Jackson

All too often, when non-Muslims venture to suggest that the burkha, abaya and niqab are oppressive to women, back comes the retort, “Well? Your women dress in bikinis/like sluts/half-naked/naked.” In fact, while I regularly see women swathed in black with slits for their eyes in such everyday places as the supermarket,

I have yet to see any naked or bikini-clad shoppers. Were this to happen, some of the rich Arab men you see swaggering down Oxford Street with shrouded trailing wives might suddenly discover feminism and take to doing the weekly shop. Be that as it may, the implication of this reaction is that the only alternative to oppressive veiling is near nudity. Burkha or bikini? Niqab or naked? Slits or sluts?

A recent documentary about British converts to Islam featured a niqabed young Scottish woman, whose broad Glaswegian accent seemed incongruous with her appearance and words. This dozy bint – my term for a Western woman who assumes the yoke of Islam – had married a Pakistani and gone to live with him in Pakistan, as his second wife. When asked if she minded being a second wife – and what woman would not mind? – she snapped, “Well? Western men have lots of affairs.” The alternative to polygamy must be promiscuity. The alternative to austerity and oppression must be wild hedonism. Not Sharia or Shakespeare, but Sharia or Celebrity Big Brother.

Non-Muslims fall into this trap as well. Ian Bell, writing in The Herald about the reaction of the holidaymakers boarding the Malaga to Manchester flight to the two Arabic-speaking “Asians”, asks rhetorically:

Who would you rather sit beside on a flight from Malaga? An obnoxious Mancunian drunk, or a pacific, and perfectly innocent, young Muslim?

Pacific and perfectly innocent versus obnoxious, Mancunian and drunk? A tough call. Of course, this is not the choice that we are faced with. A number of Muslims subsequently found to be terrorists might have been described as “pacific”, or “innocent” in their demeanour. In fact one reads so often about how quiet, devout and studious they were. Quietly devoted to studying the verses of the Koran that promise paradise to “martyrs” as a prelude to blowing themselves up in a crowded place.

Islam is not a religion that allows compromise, whether in women's dress or in politics. Any softening, any doubt or weakness and the whole house of cards could collapse, for what cannot bend must break. Many argue that Christianity is also uncompromising. As regards salvation, perhaps it is. But it has always had to compromise in this world, since separation of Church and State, of God's and Caesar's, is essential to Christian doctrine. Not so Islam, where there is no separate sphere for religion. As Theodore Dalrymple put it in a recent article in City Journal:

The specific (and baleful) contribution of Islam is that, by attributing sovereignty solely to God, and by pretending in a philosophically primitive way that God’s will is knowable independently of human interpretation, and therefore of human interest and desire—in short by allowing nothing to human as against divine nature—it tries to abolish politics. All compromises become mere truces; there is no virtue in compromise in itself. Thus Islam is inherently an unsettling and dangerous factor in world politics, independently of the actual conduct of many Muslims.

I agree wholeheartedly. As Ibn Warraq said, there are moderate Muslims but there is no moderate Islam. A distinction should be made, not between fundamentalist and moderate Islam, or between Islam and "Islamism", but between Islam the ideology and Muslims the people. Muslims may or may not practise Islam. To the extent that they practise it, they are a danger to society. If they do not practise it, or practise only certain rituals, but do not renounce it, the true Islam remains intact for the next generation to discover.

The fundamental question is whether Islam as a private faith would still be Islam, or whether such privatization would spell its doom. I think it would spell its doom. In this sense, I am an Islamic fundamentalist. The choice is between all and nothing.

A bleak conclusion, but a realistic one. All or nothing. Burkha or bikini. Islam or the West.

Back to our fellow passanger on the flight. To paraphrase Churchill, while the Mancunian may be obnoxious and drunk, tomorrow he will be sober. For you, your fellow passengers and the pacific, innocent-looking Muslim sitting quietly beside you, there may be no tomorrow.

The culture of death must not remain standing in the west

My Conversion to Radical Islam
Townhall ^ | 9/17/06 | Mike S Adams

Last Friday night, I went for a jog to relieve some stress after I found out my department denied my application for full professor. There’s something about being turned down by a diverse committee made up entirely of Democrats that causes a young Republican to search his soul for answers. And, thanks to Muhammad and Abdul, I found them.

I really wasn’t looking for these two proponents of the religion of peace but – all praise to Allah! - they sure found me. Of course, when I saw them riding up on their bicycles, I immediately assumed they were Mormons and picked up the pace. But, as they got nearer, I noticed they were too dark and brawny to be from Utah. So I slowed down to chat for awhile.

Their pitch to me was different from the one I got as a Baptist. Rather than asking me what I planned to do with Jesus, they suddenly pointed their pistols at my head and demanded that I drop to my knees. Fearing a scene reminiscent of the one in Deliverance, I quickly gave my life to Allah. I’ve been a Muslim for nearly three days now. A happier and more peaceful man I’ve never been.

But, alas, my happiness turned to sorrow when I learned of your remarks regarding the great prophet Muhammad, founder of our religion of peace. Your quotation of an ancient text suggesting he was – and Islam is - “evil and inhuman” cannot be ignored. And the Vatican’s weak suggestion that you regret Muslims were offended by the remarks is no apology. Clearly, likeminded Muslims everywhere must respond immediately and disproportionately.

We are beginning our response by appealing directly to you. Our appeal takes the form of a demand that you apologize immediately - not through a spokesperson, but directly and publicly from the floor of the United Nations. If you do not follow our orders, we will hijack planes and fly them into the U.N. Headquarters in New York. You had better take us seriously. After all, we’ve done it before.

In the event that we must attack the U.N., you will be given another week to apologize. If you do not, we will storm the Vatican and take you hostage. You had better take us seriously. After all, we’ve done it before.

In the event that we must take you hostage, you will be given another week to apologize. If you do not, we will establish special rooms in the Vatican that we will use to gang rape your nuns. We will rape them repeatedly until you apologize. You had better take us seriously. After all, we’ve done it before.

In the event that we must gang rape your nuns, you will be given another week to apologize. If you do not, we will drive to Jacksonville, North Carolina to bomb a U.S. Marines barracks. You had better take us seriously. After all, we’ve done it before.

In the event that we must bomb the sleeping Marines, you will be given another week to apologize. If you do not, we will kill one of your beloved Catholics from the Kennedy family. You had better take us seriously. After all, we’ve done it before.

If none of this works, we will sit back and schedule two years worth of actions that will take us into the summer of 2008. If we don’t have our apology by then, we will take Israeli athletes hostage at the 2008 Summer Olympics. You had better take us seriously. After all, we’ve done it before.

I know that some will say it is irrational to threaten such acts in response to the accusation that we are “evil and inhuman.” Some will say we are playing into the hands of our accusers. But those who say such things are ignoring the fact that our disproportionate responses to such insults are richly rewarded.

I predict that you will capitulate eventually and, in so doing, teach our young Muslim brothers that widespread violence is indeed rational under the circumstances. While we are not inclined to admit it, we thank American homosexual activists for teaching us how to act like crazed sociopaths to effect social change.

I look forward to your apology, Pope Benedict. And if anyone quotes your offensive quotations, I will slit his throat in the name of Islam. Praise to almighty Allah and death to those who deem us evil and inhuman.

Update: After Pope Benedict offered a public apology, Dr. Adams (now Dr. Abdul Muhammad Adams) threatened the UNCW administration with Jihad unless it reversed the decision to deny his promotion to full professor. Shortly afterwards, he threatened to flush copies of The Vagina Monologues and the Communist Manifesto (both sacred and holy texts at his university) down the toilet of the Women’s Resource Center. The communists and feminists who denied his promotion reversed themselves immediately. Adams is now the Director of Middle Eastern Studies and a Jonathan Swift Distinguished Professor of Islamic Fundamentalist Satire.

Reason must prevail or civilization is lost

Muslims Prove Papal Infallibility...and the Islamic world's disingenuity. ^ | September 19, 2006 | Alan W. Dowd

It still sounds like some sort of sick, unfunny joke, but we began this year with mobs of angry Muslims rampaging through Europe, the Middle East and Asia in deadly protests over a cartoon—yes, a cartoon. Now, many in the Islamic world are lashing out over an academic lecture ironically about the compatibility of faith and reason—a lecture presented by a pope eager to promote dialogue between Islam and Christianity. Indeed, in apologizing on Sunday, Pope Benedict XVI noted that “the true meaning of my address…was and is an invitation to frank and sincere dialogue, with great mutual respect.”

But predictably, the pope’s apology is not enough for many in the Islamic world. The episode says more about Islam’s leaders than it does about Christendom’s.

The offending phrase used by the pope is actually a quote from a 14th-century discussion between a Christian Byzantine emperor and a Muslim scholar in which the former impugns efforts to grow and spread Islam by the sword. “Show me just what Mohammed brought that was new,” the emperor declared, “and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.”

By citing the quote, the pope certainly invited listeners to consider the problem of spreading faith through violence—a timely issue. Even so, the pope did not endorse the quote, a fact underscored by his reference to the “startling brusqueness” of the emperor’s comment. Neither was he seeking to offend or condescend to Islam. To the contrary, his speech credits Islam for its faithfulness to the omnipotence of God. “For Muslim teaching, God is absolutely transcendent,” the pope explains. “His will is not bound up with any of our categories.”

Neither was the quote central to the pope’s lecture. The pope was talking about the age-old struggle between reason and faith—a struggle Christianity and Judaism know well. “The inner rapprochement between Biblical faith and Greek philosophical inquiry,” he concludes, “was an event of decisive importance not only from the standpoint of the history of religions, but also from that of world history—it is an event which concerns us even today. Given this convergence, it is not surprising that Christianity, despite its origins and some significant developments in the East, finally took on its historically decisive character in Europe.”

Those are the facts about his speech. But the facts do not matter, at least not within the Islamic world, which, according to the Washington Post, “feels besieged in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.” Really? Who knew Manhattan, Shanksville, Washington, Netanya, Haifa, Bali, Beslan, London, and Madrid were part of the “Islamic world”?

In any event, the world’s top Shiite cleric demanded a personal apology from the pope “for this false reading” of Islam. One wonders if he even read the pope’s speech, which actually calls on people of all faiths to recognize the “breadth of reason” and to become “partners in the dialogue of cultures.”

According to the Post, the Pakistani parliament condemned the pope for “derogatory comments” and also demanded an apology. A leading Turkish official accused the pope of wanting to revive the Crusades. In Egypt, protesters predictably chanted, “Oh Crusaders, oh cowards! Down with the pope!”

Primed by Hamas leader (and Palestinian prime minister) Ismail Haniyeh, Palestinians held large-scale demonstrations. In Iraq, even as bombs exploded outside an Assyrian Catholic Church, a terrorist group warned that it would begin killing Iraqi Christians unless the pope apologized. And in Somalia, the killing of a nun is being linked to the pope’s speech.

Today, as with cartoon jihad that marred January and February, Islam’s outrage is an outrage.

These violent, pitiful overreactions within the Islamic world beg a thousand questions: Do Muslims outside the West ever turn the critical eye on themselves? Where are the condemnations for those who use a holy book as a weapon of mass-murder? Why doesn’t Pakistan’s parliament condemn what is being done in the name of Islam inside its own borders and what its madrassa teachers are spawning beyond its borders?

Do Egyptian protesters ever take to the streets to show their indignation over beheadings conducted while the Koran is being read? Do Turkish officials condemn how the minarets are used in Iraq and Afghanistan to signal and coordinate terror and slaughter? Do Iraq’s religious leaders notice or care that Iraq’s agony is caused by Muslims? Was there ever a terrorist act committed anywhere that Hamas has condemned?

And perhaps the best question of all: Did the “Islamic world” hear what the pope really said—that faith and reason are not enemies, that violence is not the way to spread faith, that we must listen to “the great experiences and insights of the religious traditions of humanity”?

Airport Check-in: Fare refusals in Minnesota

Another cultural linchpin that must not be allowed:

Minneapolis-St. Paul: Muslim cab drivers refusing people "suspected of carrying alcohol"
Sharia Alert from Minnesota: "Airport Check-in: Fare refusals in Minnesota," from USAToday

Minneapolis-St. Paul is concerned that its taxi service is deteriorating. Citing their religious beliefs, some Muslim taxi drivers from Somalia are refusing to transport customers carrying or suspected of carrying alcohol. It started with one driver a few years ago, but the average number of fare refusals has grown to about three a day, says airport spokesman Patrick Hogan. "Travelers often feel surprised and insulted," he says. "Sometimes, several drivers in a row refuse carriage."
Taxi drivers and officials from the airport, taxi companies and the Muslim American Society are discussing how to address the issue. Partly out of concern that taxi drivers might be citing religion to avoid short-distance fares, the airport is now forcing drivers who refuse a fare to go to the end of the line for waiting taxis. It is not a popular decision among drivers, Hogan says.

The airport is expected to propose today that drivers who wish to avoid alcohol-toting passengers change the light on their car roofs, possibly to a different color. Hogan says the move will help let airport employees and customers know which taxis serve alcohol-carrying passengers. Drivers refusing a fare won't have to go to the end of the line. "Airport authorities are not in the business of interpreting sacred texts or dictating anyone's religious choices. ... Our goal is simply to ensure travelers at (the airport) are well served."

misusing a still stagnating system of religious belief that is based on the norms of behavior nearly millennium old

The Cost of Islamism vs. Humanity
MND/Vox Populi ^ | September 18, 2006 | By Tom Marzullo

One of the mixed benefits of a long-term interest in history is the eventual recognition of the recurring theme of the struggle of those who would increase the intrinsic value of an individual human being over the fierce objections of those who seek to continue dominating and/or subjugating them using their favorite selection from history’s lurid palate of injustice.

Our current conflict is no different in this respect… and as always it is borne out of the fear of the loss of power and/or the amoral hunger for it.

The cult of Islamism is seeking global dominance, misusing a still stagnating system of religious belief that is based on the norms of behavior nearly millennium old to assert itself against humanity’s immutable sea of change..........snip......

Winston Churchill On Islam

Winston Churchill On Islam
A quote from an 1899 book by Winston Churchill, "The River War", in which he describes Muslims he apparently observed during Kitchener's campaign in the Sudan

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen; all know how to die; but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science - the science against which it had vainly struggled - the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome.

Iraqi tribes in volatile Ramadi join to fight insurgency, leader says
AP ^ | September 18 2006 | SINAN SALAHEDDIN

Tribal leaders and clerics in Ramadi, the capital of violent Anbar province, met last week and have set up a force of about 20,000 men "ready to purge the city of these infidels," Sheik Fassal al-Guood, a prominent tribal leader from Ramadi, told The Associated Press, referring to the insurgents.

"People are fed up with the acts of those criminals who take Islam as a cover for their crimes," he said. "The situation in the province is unbearable, the city is abandoned, most of the families have fled the city and all services are poor."

Al-Guood said 15 of the 18 tribes in Ramadi "have sworn to fight those who are killing Sunnis and Shiites and they established an armed force of about 20,000 young men ready to purge the city from those infidels."

He said they had asked the Iraqi government and the U.S.-led coalition "to back them with modern weapons and cars because the terrorists have weapons more modern than their rifles."

The tribal leaders met last week and "agreed to form the Anbar Salvation Council to fight the terrorists who call themselves Mujahedeen fighting to liberate Iraq," he said.

Peaceful Muslims should turn their anger toward Islamofascists
T,he Chicago Sun-Times ^ | Septembe 18, 2006 | Peaceful Muslims should turn their anger toward Islamofascists

Something's wrong. As I thumb through the pages of newspapers and magazines and flip through newscasts on radio and television, it seems that something is terribly wrong.

While the overwhelming majority of Muslims in America are peaceful citizens, their voices are not ringing out.

We are at war. Islamofascists have declared war on the United States and stated that they intend to kill all Americans. And they've shown us that they mean business.

We've just passed the anniversary of the worst attack on America in history, 9/11, when Muslim terrorists killed nearly 3,000 innocent men, women and children as they turned passenger planes into missiles. Yet the news is filled with stories of Muslims -- not loudly condemning the Muslim murderers -- but complaining of their treatment here and demanding Americans change their attitudes.
