In Remembrance…….
The UN designated last November that January 27, the day Auschwitz-Birkenau death camp was liberated, to be an International Day of Commemoration to honor the victims of the Holocaust. Over six million Jews were systematically exterminated by the Nazis during WWII. The Nazi regime worked vigorously to ensure the complete and total destruction of Europes’ Jews, devouring entire cities, towns, synagogues and families in its death camps, sparing no one.…
Kenneth Stein: My Problems With Carter’s Book…….
Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, Carter’s twenty-first book and his second to focus on the Arab-Israeli conflict, is deficient. He does what no non-fiction author should ever do: He allows ideology or opinion to get in the way of facts. While Carter says that he wrote the book to educate and provoke debate, the narrative aims its attack toward Israel, Israeli politicians, and Israel’s supporters. It contains egregious errors of both…
A Very Strange Quiet…….
The violence and systematic persecution directed against the Palestinian’s Christian community at the hands of its Muslim majority, is a well known issue to those that frequent the pages of this blog. I have posted on many occasions proof that the Christian Arabs are being systematically driven out of their ancient cities by an ever increasing hostile Muslim populace.This depressing trend in the Palestinian Authority is matched elsewhere in the…
This Holocaust Will Be Different, According to Morris That Is…….
The Jerusalem Post publishes an article by historical revisionist, Benny Morris, titled This Holocaust will be different. Special thanks to Daniel for bringing it to my attention. Tundraman makes the initial analysis with the following: This is just about the most pessimistic essay I have seen in a long time – which does not mean that it does not have a point or two. Especially the second and third paragraphs…
A Street Called Saddam…….
They say that the path to destruction is paved with good intentions, and nothing else best describes this saying, than the recent naming of a Palestinian street in Yaabid. Out of undying loyalty to the now deposed homicidal dictator of Iraq, Saddam Hussein, the Palestinian Municipality of Yaabid -in their wisdom- named one of their streets after him. To add to their dishonor, they also deemed it a wise move…
Hounding The Gates of The Capital…….
Hezbollah kingpin, Sheik Hassan Nasrallah has his Hez supporters back into the streets once again in the Lebanese capital, to rally against Fouad Siniora’s government. One noticeable change in Hezbollah’s tactics, is the lack of the “Party of God” yellow and green flags. They’re all carrying (at least mostly) the nation’s flag of the green Cedar. More on it here. Michael Totten has more here, as well as on Druze…
Israeli Arabs Proud to be Israeli Citizens…….
The whole issue of co-existence rests upon the idea that, two differently distinct peoples can find a common ground, built on mutual respect, which will be the basis for acceptance and tolerance of each other. Here is an interesting article of such success. In spite of a rise of militantism within certain sectors , the majority of Israeli Arabs overwhelming approve of being citizens of Israel. Read more here. *L*…
Sharon Chadha: Clash of civilizations?
Blogger Sharon Chadha, describes the debate last night (20.1.07), between Dr.Daniel Pipes and Ken “the Red” Livingston, in the Clash of civilizations? , via Scott Johnson at the Power Line Blog. “In his remarks, Mayor Livingston said he was hosting the event because he wanted to avoid repeating the “tragedy” of the last century – that is to say, the Cold War, which he suggested without bothering to offer evidence,…
Leftist Anti-Semitism In Sweden…….
From the blogger, Scandamerican, comes an in-depth report of the phenomenon of Leftist anti-Semitism in Sweden. It is at first glance, disturbing to see racism crossing lines into the Leftist fold, that has traditionally seen itself as being immune from such bigotry.But the fact is, socialism has been the seeding ground for vitriolic racism against Jews, starting with the National Socialists of Germany, and then finding a permanent home inside…
More on Abu Usamah at-Thahabi…….
The American Muslim cleric who promotes hate and murder of non-Muslims, was featured in the British documentary “Dispatches” (all six segments viewable here), agreeing in prinicple for the crucifixion of a convert from Islam (within an Islamic state), and to be left hanging to bleed for three days. The spin Abu Usama puts on the highly offensive remarks he made in the secretly taken footage (viewable here), such as women…
Carter Watch, Jimmy = Empty Chair…….
The former US (worst ever X) president, Jimmy Carter, has been in the news a lot lately, due to his much discredited book on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. The most recent news about Carter concerns his speaking engagement at Brandeis University, where he is set to deliver a fifteen minute speech, then take questions for fortyfive. The interesting aspect of this news is the fact that the former president refuses to…
Heckle & Jeckle Report From Iraq…….
Finland’s Keskisuomalainen published an article (18.1.07) in its foreign news section; “Pelko ajaa amerikkalaissotilaat terrorisoimaan siviilejä / Terrified Soldiers Terrifying People“, written by Dahr Jamal, Ali al-Fadhily / IPS. The article tries to present US soldiers as being so “traumatized” by their daily battles with Iraqi insurgents/al-Qaida fighters ect., that they are killing Iraqi civilians left and right due to their “stress level”. There is an element of truth to…
Moderate Lebanese Shi’ia Cleric Supports Peace Over Violence…….
I believe it to be not only correct, but fair, to publicize Muslim moderation when it comes to my attention. Muslim advocates for rational dialogue, especially those who are community leaders need to be given a front page when ever the opportunity presents itself. Michael Totten interviews a moderate Shi’ia cleric, Sayyed Mohammad Ali El Husseini, who states: “I am against the wars and the violence because of my faith.…
Aussie Islamic Cleric Stumps For Jihad, Calls Jews Pigs…….
Radical Muslim Cleric, Sheik Feiz Mohammed, head of the Global Islamic Youth Center in western Sydney stated that : “We want to have children and offer them as soldiers defending Islam,” he added. “Teach them this: There is nothing more beloved to me than wanting to die as a mujahid,” (or holy warrior). According to Ynet; “It is the latest in a string of controversies sparked by some of Australia’s…
Carter Watch, The Saga Continues…….
Just when you think that the former Georgian peanut famer/former US president (now activist moonbat), couldn’t dare sink any further into the mire, Jimmy Carter manages to pull yet another bone headed episode out of his pointed hat. Appearing on Al-Jazeera, the Qatar news jihadi propaganda agency, Carter states that : ” I don’t consider… I wasn’t equating the Palestinian missiles with terrorism.” That should come as a surprise to…
UK Documentary Exposes Islamism in UK Mosque
A UK Channel 4 documentary uses taped video and audio material by an undercover reporter to document what kind of messages are being preached inside a British Mosque. The Kuffar (infidel/non-Muslim) should be hated, women are “deficient“, kids should be beaten, non-Muslim are not to be trusted because all are liars, an Islamic state is the main goal of all Muslims regardless of the democracy in which they live, the…
Moonbat Pali Protesters Play Pocohantos…….
One can only wonder at the farcically dressed “Palestinians for peace” protesters waiting for the arrival of the visiting US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice. Gee, I wonder if Rice was momentarily tricked into believing that she was still in the States? Protesting Whining against Israeli road blocks (that have proven to be an effective tool against Palestinian Islamakazis and other assorted brands of Pali terrorists) the group pictured, dressed…
A Waste of Time…….
These are the words of wisdom of former US ambassador, John Bolton, concerning US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice’s recent intitiative to the Middle East. I happen to agree with Bolton who explains it like this; “the Arab-Israeli conflict was “not a priority,” adding: “I don’t see linkage to Iraq, and Hamas and Fatah are in a state of civil war.” His reasoning is plain and clear for all to…
Finnish Branch of Amnesty International Continues The Canard…….
Looking through the web pages of AI’s Finnish branch, I was reminded that Amnesty International is still standing behind the claims contained in their original report “Out of all proportion – civilians bear the brunt of the war”. Some of the claims trumpeted in the AI report are of special interest, due to the recent reporting by free lance journalist, Michael Totten, “The Siege of Ain Ebel” (in the region…
Rice Says "New Options in The Making…….
According to al-AFP, the US Secretary of State, Condoleezza Rice, “is due to kick off a Middle East tour to make another crack at reviving the Israeli-Palestinian peace process but without a specific plan to resolve the conflict.”According to Ynet news, Rice plans to “dust off” the old Saudi plan which will try to include all the regional players into the peace talks , while trying to get Abbas to…
Somalia…….
I recently read a post by the blogger Toby, at Northern Lights blog, which prompted me to write a few of my own comments on the subject of Somalia as well. The ICU, who are as Toby said, “comprised along clannish lines”, was founded by the leaders of al-Ittihad al-Islamiyya and draw their main support from the clans living in the Somali capital of Mogadishu. The ICU could never in…
Terrorist Dane and Swede Get Fifteen Years…….
“The two Scandinavians were arrested on 19th October 2005 in an apartment in Sarajevo. Police found assorted bomb-making paraphernalia in the apartment, including 20 kilos of explosives, a belt of the type used in suicide bombs, hand grenades, guns and a video.” “Shortly after the two men were arrested, Danish police launched raids leading to terror-related charges against four young men. The men are currently awaiting trial in Denmark. Prosecutors,…
Hamas Recognizes Israel……?
Eh….not so fast. When I first read that wild al-Reuters claim reported in the Helsingin Sanomat (subscription only), I just waited for the other shoe to drop, …and it of couse did. The Haaretz reports that : “Hamas denied Wednesday that its Damascus-based political chief Khaled Meshal told Reuters in an interview that his group would consider recognizing Israel once a Palestinian state is established. One hour after the Reuters…
Sáid To Totten: He is Watching Us…….
In a report coming directly from southern Lebanon, (the stronghold of Hezbollahstan, and the epic center of the recent war between Lebanon and Israel) free lance journalist Michael Totten from the Middle East Journal, delivers not only an excellent story, but he also describes some interesting observations. Read here. Contrary to the statements issued by both Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, Totten records the accuracy of Israeli claims that…
US Troop Surge Planned For Iraq…….
US president, George W. Bush, announced early this morning (Finnish time) to the American people that he will ask Congress for additional troops to help implement his new strategy for the war in Iraq. He insisted that the 20 000 additional troops will help the Iraqis secure Baghdad, while giving a “breathing space” for the elected Iraqi government to help convince its people that it is able to provide for…
Senior Al-Qaida Leader in Somalia Possibly Killed…….
According to a US intelligence report, an Al-Qaida’s bomb expert who is alleged to have planned the 1998 bombings of two U.S. embassies in East Africa, Fazul Abdullah Mohammed, may have been killed in the US airstrike this past Monday. At least, that is what Somali officials are saying. Hopefully the intelligence is correct that this terrorist (who is an expert bomb maker) is no longer around to create more…
