Whodunnit?

Some say Islamist terrorists:

On January 11, 2015, a Dailymotion account called Baqya (a reference to ISIS) posted a seven-minute video of “Abu Basir ‘Abdallah Al-Afriki,” namely Amedy Coulibaly, who perpetrated the January 9, 2015 attack in the kosher supermarket in Paris and murdered a policewoman in Montrouge on the day before. The video, titled “Soldier of the Caliphate,” shows him pledging allegiance to ISIS and preparing for the attacks. It also features several segments in which he speaks to the camera and justifies his actions. Sitting with an ISIS flag behind him and a rifle beside him, he says: “What we are doing, avenging the Prophet, is completely legitimate, deserved and timely. You attacked the Caliphate, the Islamic State, [so] you are being attacked. You cannot attack and [expect] nothing in return.”

Coulibaly also confirms his ties with the Kouachi brothers, perpetrators of the Charlie Hebdo shooting. He claims that he gave them thousands of Euros and helped them prepare for the shooting, and that he and they coordinated their actions but acted separately in order to maximize the impact. Finally, he also addresses the Muslims in Europe and France in particular, calling them to join the jihad “to defend Islam.”

Okay, that’s one theory.

Here’s another:

Many people, Dana Kennedy said, were of the opinion that Jews had staged the series of deadly terror incidents to make Muslims look bad, though one went even further with his explanation.

“One person told me that they weren’t just regular Jews that were doing this but in fact but a race of magical shape-shifting Jews that were master manipulators that could be everywhere at the same time,” Kennedy said.

The belief that Jews have supernatural abilities to carry out their wicked plans is not uncommon in the Middle East.

In 2013 during a speech to religious students, Mehdi Taeb, who headed a think tank and was considered close to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, said that Jews are powerful sorcerers who have used their abilities to attack Iran. He noted that while “the Jews” had yet to unleash their full powers, their abilities were negated after they tried to use magic to interfere with the Iranian elections of 2008 and 2009.

The conspiracy theorists could have been inspired by comedian Sacha Baron Cohen’s spoof portrayal of anti-Semitic Kazakh journalist Borat, who in a 2006 film reported on “shape-shifting Jews” who had trapped him in their “nest.”

I’ll go out on a limb and say I put the pathological ravings (based on a joke by a kosher-keeping, Hebrew-speaking Jew) of a paranoid people maybe third on my list of two suspects.

All very amusing, I’m sure, but I do have one serious point.

WHAT IN G-D’S NAME ARE WE DOING CATERING TO THE SENSIBILITIES OF A BUNCH OF LUNATICS?

These people are out of their gourds, a clear and present danger to any so unfortunate to cross their paths, and the attitude of Obama, Kerry, et al, is watch what we say, don’t look them in the eye, bow and scrape, etc. Eunuchs all of them.

Achtung, crazy people! Ali G does not attend Friday prayers!

Admiral General Aladeen was not a real dictator!

Jews cannot shape-shift!

Or can they…? Watch your backs.

Je Suis Outta Here

We’ve covered some of this ground already, but not in the presence of the divine Caroline Glick:

January 16 is the nine-year anniversary of the beginning of the Ilan Halimi disaster.

On January 16, 2006, Sorour Arbabzadeh, the seductress from the Muslim anti-Jewish kidnapping gang led by Youssouf Fofana, entered the cellphone store where Halimi worked and set the honey trap.

Four days later, Halimi met Arbabzadeh for a drink at a working class bar and agreed to walk her home. She walked him straight into an ambush. Her comrades beat him, bound him and threw him into the trunk of their car.

They brought Halimi to a slum apartment and tortured him for 24 days and 24 nights before dumping him, handcuffed, naked, stabbed and suffering from third degree burns over two-thirds of his body, at a railway siding in Paris.

He died a few hours later in the hospital.

Measured by duration and premeditation, the Halimi torture must rank as the second-worst of France’s recent brushes with Muslim terrorism—worse than the Charlie Hebdo and Hyper Cacher massacres, not as horrific as the Toulouse slaughter of Jewish schoolchildren. (Your rankings may differ.)

But is that how France saw it?

The anti-Jewish nature of the gang was clear from its chosen victims. The anti-Semitic nature of their atrocious crime against Halimi was obvious from the first time they contacted his mother, Ruth Halimi, demanding ransom for his release. They made anti-Jewish slurs in all their communications with her.

And as she heard her sons tortured cries in the background, Ruth was subjected to his torturers’ recitation of Koranic verses.

And yet, throughout the period of his captivity, French authorities refused to consider the anti-Jewish nature of the crime, and as a result, refused to treat the case as life threatening or urgent.

The same attitude continued well after Halimi was found. As Weitzmann noted, the investigative magistrate insisted “There isn’t a single element to allow one to attach this murder to an anti-Semitic purpose or an anti-Semitic act.”

The denial went on through the 2009 trials of the 29 kidnappers and their accomplices. Anti-Semitism was listed as an aggravating circumstance of the crime – and as such, a cause for harsher sentencing – only for the gang leader Fofana. And in the end, even for him, the judges did not take it into account at sentencing.

As for those 29 kidnappers and accomplices, as Weitzmann notes, each one of them had a circle of friends and family.

As a consequence, by a one reporters’ conservative estimate, at least 50 people were aware of the crime and where Halimi was being held, while he was being held. And not one of them called the police. Not one of them felt moved to make a call that could save the life of a Jew.

After the fact, the media in France were happy to publish articles by the torturers’ defense lawyers insisting, “Only people motivated by ‘political reasons’ would try to sell the opinion that anti-Semitism is eating away at French society.”

[W]hen Halimi, and six years later when the three children and the rabbi massacred at Otzar Hatorah Jewish day school in Toulouse, were brought to Israel for burial, the media reported their decision in a negative way hinting that it was evidence of the basic disloyalty, or otherness of the Jews of France.

We made the same point about Netanyahu’s insistence on coming to France for the public memorial and march for the victims. Remember, their families had asked that they be buried in Israel. It was only proper that he (even if only symbolically) accompany their bodies to their ancestral home. And he should be praised, not scourged, for offering a home to living French Jews, not just dead ones.

Glick looks at the last nine years of France’s relations with its Jews and sees the same merde, different jour.

[W]hat Halimi’s murder exposed is that anti-Semitism in France is systemic. Muslims are the main perpetrators of violence. And they operate in social environments that are at a minimum indifferent to Jewish suffering and victimization. This violence and indifference is abetted by non-Islamic elites. French authorities minimize the unique threat Jews face. And the media are happy to ignore the issue, or when given the slightest opportunity, to claim that the Jews are responsible for their own victimization.

Indeed, in live reports from the scene of the hostage taking at the kosher supermarket in Paris last week, Weitzmann noted that in the early hours of the attack, French media failed to mention that the hostages were Jews.

This line is a whopper:

When all is said and done, it is their necks on the line while humanity’s conscience is merely troubled.

PS: I wrote yesterday about the flaming a-hole on NPR who ragged on Netanyahu and Israel. One of his points I forgot to mention is that he didn’t think many French Jews would pursue the aliyah suggested by Neyanyahu. His ignorance knows no bounds:

Speaking of aliya is also essential because so far the only thing that has caused French authorities to speak directly against anti-Semitism and take action to defend French Jewry has been the prospect of a mass exodus of their Jews.

The year 2014 saw a 50 percent increase in French aliya. And the Jewish Agency anticipates that that number will double to 15,000 in 2015, with 50,000 more not far behind.

If Jews don’t flee France in 2016, it will be because they’ve already left.

We Are One

And this guy is a big one:

A British MP who has come under fire on numerous occasions for anti-Semitic and anti-Israel remarks is once again in the spotlight, this time for his controversial Tweets in response to last week’s terrorist attacks in France.

Liberal Democrat MP David Ward did not issue any condemnatory statements following Friday’s deadly attack on a kosher grocery store in Paris, although he had tweeted his solidarity with the Charlie Hebdo magazine, whose offices were attacked the previous Wednesday.

But following Sunday’s mega-rally in Paris, in which Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu joined dozens of world leaders in marching in solidarity with the French people, Ward apparently woke up, Tweeting: “#Netanyahu in Paris march – what!!!! Makes me feel sick”

Not content with that response, Ward then co-opted the solidarity hashtag #JeSuisCharlie and #JeSuisJuif (“I am Charlie” and “I am Jewish”), tweeting: Je suis #Palestinian

The left-wing MP for Bradford East has been rebuked on numerous occasions by his party for militantly anti-Israel comments, and has also been criticized for making statements about “the Jews” with distinct anti-Semitic overtones.

During last summer’s conflict between Israel and Gazan terrorists, Ward came under heavy criticism for a tweet in which he openly sympathized with Palestinian terrorists firing rockets indiscriminately at Israeli civilians – and mused that he would “probably” do the same if he lived in Gaza.

“The big question is – if I lived in #Gaza would I fire a rocket? – probably yes,” read the tweet.

The previous year, he posted a tweet claiming “the Zionists are losing,” branding Israel an “apartheid” state and gleefully predicting the Jewish state’s demise.

Several months earlier Ward drew widespread condemnation, after accusing “the Jews” of “inflicting atrocities on Palestinians” and comparing Israel to Nazi Germany – all on the eve of Holocaust Memorial Day.

There are two words key to understanding this troll’s disgusting comments. No, not Liberal Democrat, though that is a very, very good guess. Very. Really awesomely good. Outstanding.

Where was I?

Oh yes: Bradford East:

The population of Bradford is ethnically diverse. The largest proportion of the district’s population (63.9%) identifies themselves as White British. The district has the largest proportion of people of Pakistani ethnic origin (20.3%) in England.

The largest religious group in Bradford is Christian (45.9% of the population). Nearly one quarter of the population (24.7%) are Muslim.

Do not Pakistani Muslims in Bradford deserve representation? If Bradford is “ethnically diverse”, why can’t it also be ideologically diverse? My only response is that if I lived in Leeds, would I fire a rocket at Bradford (the eastern half)? Certainly yes.

Je suis Meir Kahane.

UPDATE:

Looks like it’s not just Bradford and not just Muslims:

While interviewing a Jewish woman at the Paris rally on Sunday, a BBC reporter linked rising anti-Semitism and Palestinian suffering “at Jewish hands,” and urged the woman to see the “different perspectives” on Jew hatred in Europe.

I guess Liberal and Democrat are keywords after all.

The First Rule of Islam is Never Question Islam

The second rule is never forget the first rule.

This fellow had the temerity to study the rise of Islam.

Bad idea:

I was a historian, not a satirist—and, what’s more, a historian of classical antiquity. How could a book on ancient Rome offend anyone?

The answer only gradually began to dawn on me when I came to write not about Rome’s heyday but about her fall. By the 6th century A.D., the Roman Empire had been dismembered. The western half, including Italy itself, was ruled by barbarians; only the eastern half survived. In the early 7th century, that remnant was reduced, in turn, to a bleeding trunk. Provinces that had been Roman for centuries were lost for good to a new breed of imperialists: the Arabs.

The collapse of Roman power in the Near East was the flip side of another story: the rise of Islam. The Arab armies who seized from the Romans the provinces of Palestine, Syria and Egypt were Muslim, according to traditional historiography, and had been inspired to their remarkable feats of conquest by the revelations of a prophet, Muhammad. It took me only a cursory immersion in the scholarship of the period to realize that these presumptions were (to put it mildly) widely contested.

Indeed, it was hard to think of another field of history where quite so much was up for grabs. Questions fundamental to Islam’s traditional understanding of itself turned out to defy consensus. Might the Arab conquerors not actually have been Muslim at all? Did the Quran, the supposed corpus of Muhammad’s revelations, in fact derive from a whole multiplicity of pre-existing sources? Was it possible that Muhammad himself, rather than coming from Mecca, had lived far to the north, in the deserts beyond Roman Palestine? The answer to all these questions, I gradually came to conclude, was yes.

The publication of the book went well enough. Then Channel 4 decided to make it into a show:

[A] TV station that had been set up in the U.K. back in the 1980s with a publicly funded remit to serve as the BBC’s naughty younger brother. Ever since, no Christmas or Easter has been complete in Britain without a documentary in its schedule questioning the historicity of the Bible.

Never before, though, had it—or, indeed, any other British TV channel—aired a documentary questioning the basis of what most Muslims believed about the origins of their faith. I still remember a feeling of almost physical panic as I stood on the battlements of an abandoned Roman city in the Negev Desert and raised the possibility, on camera, that Muhammad might not have come from Mecca. The director, the brilliant and award-winning filmmaker Kevin Sim, had aimed to make me and my anxieties about what I was doing a part of the film, and he more than succeeded. There is barely a shot in the documentary in which I do not look mildly terrified.

It didn’t take long for me to realize my mistake. Just a few minutes into the broadcast, my Twitter stream was going up in smoke. By the time the show ended, the death threats were coming in thick and fast—and not just against me but against my family as well. Channel 4 was also deluged with protests. A private screening scheduled for assorted movers and shakers had to be canceled after the police warned that they couldn’t guarantee the security of those attending the event. Because many of the invitees had been journalists, this naturally gave the controversy a new lease of life.

Two weeks later, I was still fielding death threats from Muslims convinced that the only plausible explanation for my having made the film was that I was in the pay of Mossad or the CIA or both. The most chilling moment of all came when Press TV, a propaganda arm of the Iranian government, aired a documentary leveling pretty much that accusation. It was the one time that I seriously imagined I might end up as the new Salman Rushdie.

An entertaining and illustrative story. But not half as illustrative as his bio at the end of the piece:

Mr. Holland is the author of “Rubicon: The Last Years of the Roman Republic” and “In the Shadow of the Sword: The Birth of Islam and the Rise of the Global Arab Empire.” His new translation of “The Histories” of Herodotus is published by Penguin Classics.

He’s not writing about the birth of Islam any more. He’s gone about ten centuries the other way. No one threatens to cut off your head over Herodotus. You can say what you like about the Spartans (and many have), but they’re not around to take offense.

#bringbackourcartoonists

Mark Steyn beheads the preening, narcissistic media over the Charlie Hebdo murders:

Yes, the media feels the wrath of his tongue-lashing, but it’s the shots at John Kerry and Barack Obama that have me shouting “Steynu Akbar!”

He quotes Kerry’s stony-faced reaction: “John Kerry today said that this was a battle between civilization and, pregnant pause, the forces that are opposed to civilization,” he said. Alas, Kerry never named those forces. Our leaders may be as sensitive and politically correct as they like, but if they do not recognize that public enemy number one wears a beard and a turban (though he hates to have his picture taken), they are doing us more harm than good.

And if that ain’t clear enough for you: “The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” President Obama said, most improbably.

Steyn’s reaction (and I paraphrase): technically, you can’t slander someone who died in the 7th century.

To which I add, also technically, Charlie Hebdo libeled—if they even did that, as truth is an absolute defense—not slandered, the prophet of Islam.

Slander and libel are offenses dealt with in court. The Charlie Hebdo killers, and Theo van Gogh’s killer, those who tried to hunt down Salman Rushdie, those whom Ayaan Hirsi Ali fears to this day—and countless legions of other murderers in the name of Muhammad—do not pursue legal remedies. Their grievances are not judicial in nature. Those who slander, libel, insult, slight, look cross-eyed at the prophet of Islam, are dealt by another form of justice, via the knife, the gun, the RPG, the 747.

I have no quarrel with the prophet of Islam. Seriously, I don’t. And I write that not out of fear, but out of ignorance. There are well over a billion Muslims—and a fair number of others—who know him better than I. Let them debate. Some of the more lurid stories (pick your own) I put down to local customs of the times. Child brides and slavery were once more common than they are now. Feigning shock at their existence over a millennium ago bores me, as long as we agree there’s no place for them today.

Just as there’s no place for smiting the infidel today. It is those who smite with whom I/we have a problem. Stop smiting and no one gets hurt. But as I write yesterday, the smiting comes last. There’s usually a long line of offenses, most criminal, that come before, and give us a good indication of where this is going. The earliest—the first wing pulled off the fly, the first tormented puppy—is often pure, distilled Jew-hatred. You may think it’s a long way from “descendant of apes and pigs” to “Allahu Akbar” and a hail of bullets, but there are those who know a shortcut. Charlie Hebdo might well still be an unappreciated satirical magazine (the best kind of satirical magazine), Private Eye with accents graves, rather than lying in their graves, if lesser offenses had been more greatly punished.

As I also wrote yesterday, these guys probably had a record (check), were probably home grown (check), and we’d soon learn how they did it (check, one is already under arrest). That’s hardly the Amazing Kreskin at work. We have all too much history with this sort of thing. Do we have the will to relegate it to history, that is the question.

Pourqoui Nous Haïssent-ils?

I leave it to others to assign the blame for Muslim terrorists gunning down a dozen cartoonists in Paris this morning—save the terrorists themselves, of course. Anyone but them, and anything but their religion. My mind has been going over what to do about it. With so little known right now, I have had to make certain assumptions, any one of which, if incorrect, would effect my conclusions and suggestions.

This is a generational battle, and I believe the terrorists were home-grown—at least not hit-men from another country. These terrorists will be caught or killed, and the details of their training and planning will be learned. But with 5 million Muslims in France, even a ratio of sympathizers of just one percent would yield 50,000. Say only a tenth of that are zealous enough to act on those terrorist sympathies, and you have more than enough of an army to muster. (I think actual polls show my numbers are conservative to the extreme.) How to combat them, however, without civilian casualties among the other 99% (or even the 99.9%)?

I have two suggestions that don’t violate—much—anyone’s civil liberties. One, increased surveillance of mosques, and currying informers among their worshipers. We know from the Boston Marathon bombers that the big brother, Speed Bump, was not shy about speaking his increasingly unhinged mind among friends. Indeed, we know from reading MEMRI and PMW, much Islamic terrorism is inspired by the imams themselves. Investigators have those 99% (-ish) of honest (-ish) Muslims to harvest their intelligence; it might be enough. At least it will have to do.

My other suggestion is to police Islamic fundamentalism at home the way we have learned to police urban crime in America: using the “broken window” theory of policing. The petty crimes that begin to deface a neighborhood lead to the bigger crimes later on that take an infinitely greater toll. The “petty crime” common among many Islamist terrorist wannabes is virulent Jew-hatred. Antisemitism is not merely a gateway drug; it is an ideological addiction more powerful than any other. By their anti-Jewish ranting shall ye know them. People can think what they wish, they can say much of what they think, but if their words transgress from merely ignorant into incitement (defined as broadly as the law will allow), they should be jailed. For a good while. Get them off the street before they do worse.

The original headline that earned Fox Butterfield the eponymous “Butterfield Effect” read like this: “Crime Keeps On Falling, but Prisons Keep On Filling”. If you fill French prisons with Muslims who plot and preach hate, their crimes will fall. That’s the theory, anyway.

I’ve had the same irrational, hate-filled feelings many of you have had. But I think we can get the Muslim terrorists with the ammunition they’ve given us themselves. If we have the will to use it. It’s only civilization itself at stake.

Rules For Journalists

Given today’s activist actions in Paris, it is obvious that journalism needs to change. We at BTL are working on code of formal professional ethics to replace the worn-out and seldom used, who, what, when, where and why. We need help on this guys, please add suggestions in the comments section.

1. The purpose of The Profession of Journalism is to support a peaceful, zen-like state among the Stupid People Public. Our goal as professionals is to achieve Perfect Harmony.

2. Any use of language or imagery that detracts from the above goal must be prevented before it is published.

3. Ancillary useful activities that journalists may, and in some cases, should, engage in involve support for political parties, candidates, or groups or individuals that effect a peaceful, zen-like state on the population. Articles should be written in simple, positive language, supporting such groups. Likewise, images should portray the main actors in a positive light. It is sometimes desirable to deviate from “the truth” to achieve the goal of Many Truths.

4. Another worthwhile endeavor of the Professional Journalist would be to castigate groups or individuals who threaten the zen-like state of Perfect Harmony.

5. It is obvious from the goals stated here that journalists should avoid antagonizing any group that is armed or professes an interest in disrupting the Perfect Harmony that we all seek.

Ok, please add or modify as you see fit.

Activists Attack French Newspaper, Killing 11 [Update – 12 Dead]

Terrorists, you say? Check CNN. It’s all about terrorism, however, the video opens immediately and I don’t link to sites that do that.

I can tell you that they are horrified over at CNN and across Europe. It can’t happen here!!

Yes, kittens, it can. It can happen anywhere, because terrorism is a technique, and can be directed at anyone, at any time, for any reason. The takeaway message is that journalists should never criticize Islam. I guarantee you that the journalists have heard.

Ah, here we go, a link that does not open with video:

Twelve people have been shot dead at the headquarters of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, say police.

Two masked gunmen are reported to have stormed the offices of the controversial publication, which has previously been attacked over its portrayal of the Prophet Mohammed.

They are believed to have been armed with Kalashnikov rifles and a rocket-propelled grenade.

According to the AFP news agency, the attackers shouted: “We have avenged the prophet.”

A manhunt is under way for the gunmen, who escaped after a shootout in the street with police.

Move Along, No Islam to See Here

Jihadi family values:

The handbook titled “Sister’s Role in Jihad” recommends showing children jihadi websites, reading jihad tales before bed, practicing sports that require good hand-eye coordination, like darts, and going on camping trips to teach the children how to survive outdoors.

Women are expected to start training children “while they are babies” as waiting longer than that “may be too late.” The guide adds: ‘Don’t underestimate the lasting effect of what those little ears and eyes take in during the first few years of life!’

The guide is known to have at least one definite follower – British extremist Runa Khan, who was convicted and jailed for five years for dressing her six children in jihadi uniforms and posting the images online.

Deplorable, disgusting, of course. Inhuman, even.

But news?

Isn’t little Ahmed adorable with his RPG? They just get cuter and cuter:

Inevitably, however, there’ll be tears before bedtime:

That’s okay, little one. Someone has to stay behind and sew the uniforms. Better we find out what manner of man you are at age three than 23.

I found all these pictures—and dozens more—by merely typing “Hamas children” in an image search. Try it yourself, and storyboard your own tale of terror-tots.

Our point is that Hamass especially—but, seriously, Arab/Islamic culture in general—has been this depraved, this inhuman, for years.

Decades.

Who else kidnapped and murdered an entire Olympic team? Or shot and dumped overboard a disabled old man? Who else douses their children in an acid bath of genocidal incitement at school (UN schools, no less), in the park, and on TV?

MEMRI does an invaluable job of translating and disseminating the words out of the mouths of Islamic terrorists. Indeed, they are fundraising right now, so if you have a few shekels to spare…. So no one would know better than MEMRI (and anyone who reads MEMRI or Palestinian Media Watch) that this virulent strain in Islam is deep and broad. And long-standing.

I can’t say I exactly welcome the latest Islam-inspired atrocities courtesy of ISIS, Boko Haram, Al Shabaab, et al, but I am…encouraged (if that’s the word) at the coverage they get. Maybe now, people will get it.

But only so encouraged. People have steadfastly refused to get it so far. The history of genocide and mass terror in the world is of people doing everything in their power not to get it.

One iconic image can tell the story:

Two Israeli reservists were lynched by an Arab mob in 2000. The strapping lad above proudly displays their blood. This image should be seared into our memories, as familiar to all as the flag-raising at Iwo Jima or the Spirit of ’76.

Unfortunately, it is, only to some:

Amazing grace! How sweet the sound
That saved a wretch like me!
I once was lost, but now am found;
Was blind, but now I see.

PS: The man in the image was identified, caught (red-handed, if you will), and jailed. Only to be released in the Gilad Shalit prisoner swap. Presumably, he now sits in a rocking chair on the porch in front of the General Store and recounts his tales derring-do.

PPS: “Living well is the best revenge,” the saying goes. Or just living:

And this week, the son of one of the grotesquely murdered Israelis, has become a bar mitzvah. David Vadim Nurzhitz, the son of Vadim Nurzhitz, celebrated his entry into adulthood according to Jewish law. David never knew his father. The lynching took place shortly before David was born.

So now, let us do our best to replace the memory of the evil Salha – who, incredibly, was released in 2011 in the massive exchange of murderers and other terrorists for the kidnapped Gilad Shalit – with David’s smiling face.

Mazal tov David, may you live a life of joy until the age of 120, and may you go from strength to strength.

Amen.

Man of the Book

Yesterday, we confirmed our suspicion that Ismaaiyl Abdullah Brinsley, the despicable assassin or two NYPD cops, was indeed Muslim.

But what kind of Muslim was he?

The gunman who killed two of New York’s Finest was estranged from his own family — with his mother terrified that her disturbed son would explode into violence.

Ismaaiyl Brinsley, who had 19 arrests and a history of mental illness, had not seen his mother, Sheryl Brinsley, or his two sisters in more than a year.

Sheryl Brinsley also told police that her son “had a very troubled childhood and was often violent.”

Ismaaiyl lived a transient lifestyle, with no permanent address. He tried to hang himself last year, his mother told investigators.

In one bizarre Facebook anecdote, Brinsley told a story about a brawl he had with a beggar in Atlanta — a fight that quickly turned into a friendship.

“He asked me for some change. We ended up in an actual fistfight,” Brinsley wrote. “I asked him to come with me and grab a beer. Once at the bar we started talking and I found out he was Muslim too. We good now. All is love.”

Who gets into a fistfight over bumming quarters? Who goes from a fistfight to “all is love”?

He reminds me of someone:

Thirteen people have been injured after a known psychiatric patient drove into pedestrians shouting ‘God is greatest’ in Arabic in a French city.

Two of those hit by the driver, who was believed to be drunk, were in a ‘very serious’ condition in the city of Dijon after being struck shortly after 8pm on Sunday night.

Interior Ministry spokesman Pierre-Henry Brandet confirmed that the man was a ‘psychiatric patient’ and used expressions including ‘Allahu Akbar’, or ‘God is Great’.

He was also heard to say ‘For the Children of Palestine’, referring to deaths of more than 500 youngsters during the Israeli military campaign in the Gaza Strip over the summer.

It’s okay now. All is love.

Tough Day To Be A Muslim Child

The adults keep killing them. Aside from the slaughter in Pakistan, an additional 20 children were blown up in Yemen.

Two car bombs killed at least 31 people, including 20 children, in central Yemen’s Radaa city when suspected al Qaeda fighters targeted Houthi militants Tuesday, senior security officials and locals told CNN.
One car bomb struck a Houthi gathering point, but the other did not make it to the target and instead blew up next to a bus that was carrying children home from school, officials said.
All the killed children were under the age of 12
, said Osama Sari, a prominent pro-Houthi activist.
Eleven Houthi fighters were killed, an Interior Ministry official said.
Eyewitnesses told CNN that the death toll within Houthi lines exceeded 18. At least a dozen others were injured, among them six in critical condition, medical sources in Radaa told CNN.

I’m not going to make any wisecracks about whether little kids even want 72 virgins or whether they would have been just as happy with Legos or My First Disney Princess Frozen Snow Glow Elsa Singing Doll.

What in the heck is wrong with these people?

No Wonder Obama Wants Sanctions Against Israel!

It’s filled with…Jews!

A preacher at the Al-Aqsa mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem – Judaism’s holiest site – engaged in blatant incitement against Jews and Israel in an impromptu speech two weeks ago, in remarks translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute.

“Let me start by saying that talking about the traits of the Jews requires one to get into a special mode, because when talking about the Jews, we are talking about a people to whom every single vile trait has been attributed,” the preacher, named as Sheikh Omar Abu Sara, begins. “They were the masters of these vile traits and they taught their secrets to others.”

“These traits were registered in the Quran, which depicted all aspects of the lives of the Jews in the most abominable images,” he continued. “These traits are the same today as they were in the days of yore.”

The preacher then continues to slam Jews, calling them the “most evil of Allah’s creations,” claiming that they “kill prophets,” and saying “it was Jews whom Allah turned into apes and pigs.”

Tens of Arabs can be seen sitting or standing, watching the preacher.

“I say to the Jews: the time for your slaughter has come,” he added. “The time to fight you has come, the time to kill you has come.”

I’m sure Obama is unaware of this sort of talk (at Islam’s third holiest site—and Israel’s most). He never heard Jeremiah Wright’s rants either.
