RIP James Foley, Rot in Hell ISLAMIC State

We offer our condolences to the family of James Foley, New Hampshire’s own:

When war reporter James Foley wasn’t writing for GlobalPost or recording video for AFP or appearing on the PBS “NewsHour,” he occasionally shared stories on his own blog, aptly titled “A World of Troubles.”

For a subtitle, he chose the famous Carl von Clausewitz sentence “War is fought by human beings.”

And that is exactly what Foley sought to show with his reporting: humanity amid the horror of war.

Foley was abducted while on a reporting trip in northern Syria in November 2012. He was never heard from again.

A video published Tuesday by the extremist group ISIS showed Foley being beheaded. It is not known when or where the video was recorded.

For Foley’s family and friends, the recording was the answer they hoped they’d never hear to their questions about his disappearance.

“We have never been prouder of our son Jim. He gave his life trying to expose the world to the suffering of the Syrian people,” his mother, Diane, said Tuesday night,

She called him “an extraordinary son, brother, journalist and person.”

Foley was the oldest child of Diane and John Foley of Rochester, New Hampshire. He had four siblings.

Someone doing what he did would have known that something like what happened to him was a real possibility. But I still salute him for trying. I wouldn’t do it, but if he saw himself as a reporter, and he didn’t put a wife or children through the agony of what happened, I won’t take anything away from his sacrifice.

What I did not need was his death to tell me how subhuman the ISLAMIC State is. They have made it abundantly clear. They make fellow Islamic savages, Boko Haram, look like the Marylebone Cricket Club. In fact, Foley’s death isn’t even the most grisly death of a reporter (though it’s a close second). Daniel Pearl’s live-from-Kabul decapitation will never be, uh, topped, by the mere fact that Khalid Sheik Muhammad (or whoever) acted just after Pearl proudly and fearlessly admitted to being a Jew.

ISIS may be the baddest mofos on the planet right now (they think they are), but they are hardly unique:

As Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria butcher thousands of “infidels” and carry off their women and children into slavery, many in the West are inclined to see this as an unique outcrop of Islamic fundamentalism. Yet after overrunning a Bosnian town on 11th July 1995, Bosnian Serb – ostensibly Christian – forces, cold-bloodedly massacred 8,000 Bosnian Muslims at Srebrenica. Hutu genocide of Tutsi in Rwanda, Khmer Rouge mass-murder of Cambodian city-dwellers, Nazi genocide of Jews, Gypsies and the disabled…. the list of savagery is as long as it is profoundly depressing.

The Serbs may have been “ostensibly Christian”, and their victims were certainly Muslim, but was the massacre religiously motivated? Better put, was the primacy of one religion over the other the reason for the slaughter? It is so overwhelmingly among the ISLAMIC Staters and their ilk, but I don’t think Bosnia was a religious war. I am aware of no Serbs shouting “God is great!” as they committed their unspeakable atrocities.

Finally, people will do savage things if their leaders tell them it is acceptable to do so, particularly if they have given their selves to the group self. The Rwandan genocide was switched on by a series of radio broadcasts by a small group of leaders to a population who, by that instruction, were turned into savage murderers of former friends and neighbours who were in the out-group. The soldiers of the Soviet army committed mass rape as they invaded Germany in 1945 because senior commanders had advocated it. Islamic State fighters are slaughtering unarmed Christians and Yazidis because their leaders have told them that this is the right thing to do.

True, but only to a point. I believe that in all these cases the beasts would have behaved bestially or without exhortation.

How Embarrassing!

In the ongoing Competition for Carnage™ between ISIS and Boko Haram, Boko takes a huge blow:

Chadian troops have rescued 85 Nigerians kidnapped last week by the Islamist terror group Boko Haram, security and human rights sources in Nigeria said Saturday.

Dozens of Boko Haram insurgents stormed the Doron Baga fishing and farming village on the shores of Lake Chad late Sunday through Monday and took away 97 young men and boys plus several women, residents said. The raiders killed 28 residents and burned scores of homes, according to residents.

It’s all well and good to murder and pillage, but if you’re going to kidnap people, they damn well ought to stay kidnapped:

Chadian security officials reported intercepting a convoy of buses carrying 85 Nigerians” believed to have been kidnapped by Boko Haram terrorists from Baga,” a Nigerian security source said.

“The convoy being led by six Boko Haram gunmen was stopped on the Chadian part of the border along Lake Chad for routine checks and the huge number in the convoy raised suspicion,” said the source, who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak on the issue.

An official of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) in Maiduguri confirmed the rescue of the 63 male and 22 female hostages.

The source, who asked that his name not be used, said more than 30 hostages were still being held by Boko Haram. He said their captors sped off with them in motorboats when they spotted the convoy being questioned by Chadian soldiers.

Run away!

What a pack of nancy-boys. You don’t see ISIS losing their captured, or running from Chadian troops (Chadian troops!) at the first sign of trouble. Those they don’t kill, they convert; those they don’t convert, they rape—to take the blond hair and blue eyes out of their lineage. That’s how you terrorize a population.

Yadda-yadda-yadda. Get your act together, Boko.

PS: As I wrote above, this is how you terrorize a population.

In yet another harrowing chapter in the tragic plight of Iraq’s Kurdish Yazidi population, eyewitnesses have described how girls raped by Muslim fighters from the Islamic State” (formerly ISIS) committed suicide en-masse after returning to their families, as evidence of systematic rape by Islamists against non-Muslims continue to surface.

Among the tens of thousands of Yazidi refugees trapped in the Shingal mountains while fleeing IS’s deadly advance through Iraq, several survivors told Kurdish Rudaw TV how a group of three girls were returned after being abducted and raped – only to hurl themselves off a cliff after being traumatized by their ordeal.

A Kurdish reporter said the mother of one of the girls had given an interview in front of the camera, but claimed Kurdish fighters from the YPG militia had seized the camera and erased the interview – possibly in an attempt to avoid sowing panic.

The mother reportedly told of how in their desperation the girls begged other refugees to kill them, but when no one would comply they killed themselves.

Game, set, match, ISLAMIC State.

The ISLAMIC State just kidnapped 100 Yazidi women.

Or doesn’t anybody care?

Extremist fighters swept into a Yazidi village in northern Iraq on Friday, killing at least 80 men and taking more than 100 women captive, officials told CNN.

The report of the brutal attack on the village of Kojo comes a day after U.S. President Barack Obama — citing the success of targeted American airstrikes — declared an end to an ISIS siege that had trapped tens of thousands of Yazidis in mountains.

That’s the secret of comedy, Mr. President: timing.

I don’t want to ruin anyone’s weekend, but you know why Boko North wants the women, don’t you?

They’re blonde:

Fears are growing for the 300 Yazidi women reportedly kidnapped by Islamic State fighters last week amid claims they would be used to bear children to break up the ancient sect’s bloodline.

The minority group is originally Aryan and has retained a fairer complexion, blonde hair and blue eyes by only marrying within the community.

But in a furious bid to convert all non-Muslims, ISIS jihadists have vowed to impregnate the hostages.

But President Obama says mission accomplished, our work is done. Sorry, ladies, but you might as well lie back and think of Mosul. You may get a Twitter campaign out of the deal, as well as a half-terrorist baby.

PS: Say hi to the Nigerian #girls if you see them.

PPS: Beyond desperately sad, this is fascinating. What do we do when confronted by cold, dark evil? Very little, if you’re President Obama. Any results from our troops in Nigeria looking for the #girls? Not that I’ve heard of. And ISIS will rape and pillage until somebody stops them. Evidently that somebody is not going to be us. Oh well, ISLAMIC State happens.

Rats Joining the Sinking Ship

What others see as a worry or a concern, BTL sees as an opportunity:

U.S. spy agencies have begun to see groups of fighters abandoning al-Qaeda affiliates in Yemen and Africa to join the rival Islamist organization that has seized territory in Iraq and Syria and been targeted in American airstrikes, U.S. officials said.

The movements are seen by U.S. ­counterterrorism analysts as a worrisome indication of the expanding appeal of a group known as the Islamic State that has overwhelmed military forces in the region and may now see itself in direct conflict with the United States.

“Small groups from a number of al-Qaeda affiliates have defected to ISIS,” as the group is also known, said a U.S. official with access to classified intelligence assessments. “And this problem will probably become more acute as ISIS continues to rack up victories.”

Now that President Obama has woken up to the reality of slaughtered Christians, starving Yazidis, and depraved, subhuman savages in ISIS, this just makes our job easier. It may be hard to pick off Al Qaeda pockets here, there, and everywhere. But if the terrorists want to hop into the pool of blood that is Iraq, I say come on in the water’s fine. Just drop bigger bombs.

Killing Them Softly

Let me stipulate: I’m happy. I’ve never met an Islamist terrorist I didn’t think deserved to be bombed. But I wonder.

Did President Obama drop leaflets in advance to warn people that he was about to go ballistic? Did he call them on the phone and broadcast alerts over loudspeakers?

The rampage of religious violence that Sunni Islamist extremists have wrought in Iraq had the U.S. administration talking of “genocide” on Thursday.

President Obama used the term when he announced he has authorized targeted airstrikes against the extremists, after fighters for Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, drove ethnic Yazidi families up a mountain, where they hungered and some of their children died of thirst in the scorching summer sun.

“I believe the United States of America cannot turn a blind eye,” Obama said on Friday. “We can act, carefully and responsibly to prevent a potential act of genocide.”

Great. Fire away. The only good decapitator is a dead decapitator, I always say.

But I also have to ask: will Obama set up field hospitals to treat the wounded—enemies? Will he hold fire when civilians are shown to be at risk? Will he target only infrastructure, leaving ISIS in power? Will he put the lives of young men at risk to accomplish a vital mission?

The administration has adamantly reassured Americans that it won’t put U.S. boots on the ground…

Of course not. Who would send troops into harm’s way when you could level the place thrice-over from the sky? The UN wouldn’t mind.

Meanwhile, ISIS Is Forcing Christians To Convert To Islam, And Then Beheading Them

Hey Europe! Where are the protests? Why aren’t you attacking people on the streets over this? And for that matter, where are the protests in the US? Where is our State Department or our Great Leader, President Obama?

If you’re following the news about ISIS, which now calls itself the Islamic State, you might think you’ve mistakenly clicked on a historical story about barbarians from millennia ago.

In a matter of months, the group seized territory in both Iraq and Syria and declared an Islamic caliphate, celebrating its own shocking slaughter along the way.

“I don’t see any attention from the rest of the world,” a member of the Yazidi minority in Iraq told the New Yorker. “In one day, they killed more than two thousand Yazidi in Sinjar, and the whole world says, ‘Save Gaza, save Gaza.’”
In Syria, the group hoisted some of its victims severed heads on poles. One of the latest videos of the savagery shows a Christian man forced to his knees, surrounded by masked militants, identified in the video as members of ISIS. They force the man at gunpoint to “convert” to Islam. Then, the group beheads him.

ISIS has targeted members of numerous minority groups in the region, including Christian nuns, Turkmen and Shabaks, according to Human Rights Watch.

ISIS is apparently beheading children too. So, again, where is the Western world? Or don’t you care?

The Religion That Blew Up The Bamiyan Buddhas

Taliban, meet ISIS:

If you blink during the video, you might miss the moment Jonah’s tomb in Mosul, Iraq, explodes.

The first few frames show the revered shrine towering over its landscape. There’s a sudden burst of dust, fire and smoke.

Then, nothing.

CNN could not immediately confirm the authenticity of the video, which was posted to YouTube.

The holy site is thought to be the burial place of the prophet Jonah, who was swallowed by a whale or fish in both the Islamic and Judeo-Christian traditions.

Militants belonging to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, planted explosives around the tomb and detonated the explosion remotely Thursday, civil defense officials there told CNN.

The tomb was inside a Sunni mosque called the Mosque of the Prophet Younis.

I would ask why, but these are crazed Islamists. They’d blow up the 79th Street IRT subway station if they could.

The Buddhas last moments (out of 1500 years):

Where’s The Candy?

Those of you that follow the Palestinian Arab culture know that every time a successful terrorist attack occurs against Westerners – Israelis, Americans on September 11th, 2001, etc. – they dance in the streets and hand out candy to children. Palestinian terrorists (is that a redundancy?) have been shelling Sderot, a little town of about 20,000, since 2005. Tens of thousands of shells have landed there causing death and property damage. I remember one incident: A Palestinian terrorist missile hit and killed the only child of an older father as he walked him to his first day of kindergarden.

So here we have a photograph of residents of Sderot enjoying the fireworks in Gaza. Some people are offended by this, especially the Aryan (Danish) media. I only wonder about the seeming lack of candy?

No Candy?

Now We’re Getting Somewhere!

Out: Michelle.

In: Adokiye.

A 23-year-old Nigerian pop singer has offered her virginity to the militant group Boko Haram in exchange for the kidnapped Chibok girls.

“They are between 12 and 15 year old girls for Christ sake. I am older and more experienced. Even if 10 to 12 men have to take me every night, I don’t care. Just release these girls and let them go back to their parents,” singer Adokiye told the Vanguard in an interview.

“This is 11pm in the night and do you know what I am thinking about? Those little girls, where they are and what could be happening to them. It is just unfair. They are too young. I wish I could offer myself in exchange,” she told Vanguard.

She seems to speak from an awful lot of “experience” for someone who is offering her “virginity”, but subhuman Islamist savages can’t be choosers. They should be so lucky to get even a piece of the lovely Adokiye.

Just one more thing, Boko, and it’s going to cost you beaucoup:

At 23, looking hot and rather willing with her liberated personality, her fans found it hard to believe, but Adokiye said it is true and that whoever wants her virginity should be prepared to buy her mother the private jet she long promised her.

This may seem awfully silly and trivial, but, really, any sillier or more trivial than this?

Since we limp-wristed (among other similarly afflicted body parts) types began our hashtag offensive, Boko Haram have killed, kidnapped, and blown up with abandon. Unless ours is a rope-a-dope strategy, designed to wear them down by daring them to punch themselves out, I’m putting my money (limited as it is) on the virginity of Adokiye and any sister virgins willing to follow her lead.

PS: What will this get me? Second base, and it’s Mama Adokiye’s with my compliments.

Being Jewish In France

They are bailing.

BTl touched on this below, and I’ve commented previously, but the media is finally covering this a little bit.

Increasing numbers of French Jews are leaving for Israel, citing dim economic prospects and a sense of being caught between an increasingly influential far right and militant Islam. More than 5,000 are on track to leave this year, the most since after the Six-Day War in 1967. [The AP refuses to mention the Jew hatred living in the French Left, but trust me, it's there. - Aggie]

Israel, seeing the influx as a success, is doubling down on its efforts to attract Europeans, planning to dedicate $29 million over two years to bring in new immigrants.

France has the world’s third-largest Jewish population after Israel and the United States – about 500,000, according to rough estimates. The country bans any official documentation of a person’s race, religion or ethnicity in a law with roots in French shame over its collaboration with the Nazis. [The more things change, the more they stay the same... plus ca change, right Frenchie? - Aggie]

Since World War II, France has redoubled efforts to make Jewish families feel welcome. But many say dramatic acts of anti-Semitism coupled with France’s stagnant economy — which includes a 25 percent youth unemployment rate, compared with 11 percent in Israel — make a hard choice easier.

Laurie Levy, 26, left in 2013. A native of the southern city of Toulouse, her departure came after attacks by a French-born Islamic radical on a Jewish school and soldiers left seven people dead, including three children and a rabbi. She has given up on a career in French law and left behind her parents and siblings.

In Tel Aviv, she no longer feels the need to hide the Star of David she wears around her neck. But there are other concerns: Her parents are unlikely to uproot themselves and she worries about their future back in France. They, in turn, worry about her, living alone in a different country.

“Life is beautiful here. You work. You go to the beach. You see your friends. You’re not afraid,” said Levy, who now works at an Israeli design firm. “The irony is that I am more concerned about them than they are about me.”

That she was able to switch fields and find a job is a demonstration of Israel’s economic allure. The country annually welcomes 1,000 French youths for a year abroad and 70 percent of them decide to stay in Israel, according to Ariel Kandel, who runs the Jewish Agency for Israel in Paris.

And then there’s the famous French sense of humor:

“I am not an anti-Semite,” French comedian Dieudonné M’bala M’bala says with a devilish grin near the start of his hit show at this city’s Théâtre de la Main d’Or.

Then come the Jew jokes.

In front of a packed house, he apes Alain Jakubowicz, a French Jewish leader who calls the humor of Dieudonné tantamount to hate speech. While the comedian skewers Jakubowicz, Stars of David glow on screen and, as the audience guffaws, a soundtrack plays evoking the trains to Nazi death camps. In various other skits, he belittles the Holocaust, then mocks it as a gross exaggeration.

In a country where Jewish leaders are decrying the worst climate of anti-Semitism in decades, Dieudonné, a longtime comedian and erstwhile politician whose attacks on Jews have grown progressively worse, is a sign of the times. French authorities issued an effective ban on his latest show in January for inciting hate. So he reworked the material to get back on stage — cutting, for instance, one joke lamenting the lack of modern-day gas chambers.

Isn’t that hilarious?

But the Afro-French comedian, whose stage name is simply Dieudonné, managed to salvage other bits, including his signature “quenelle” salute. Across Europe, the downward-pointing arm gesture that looks like an inverted Nazi salute has now gone so viral that it has popped up on army bases, in parliaments, at weddings and at professional soccer matches. Neo-Nazis have used it in front of synagogues and Holocaust memorials. Earlier this year, bands of Dieudonné supporters flashed it during a street protest in Paris while shouting, “Jews, out of France!”

“Dieudonné is getting millions of views on his videos on the Internet and is spreading his quenelle,” said Roger Cukierman, president of the Council for Jewish Institutions in France. “Something very worrying is happening in France. This is not a good time for Jews.”

Look at the numbers:

A recent global survey by the New York-based Anti-Defamation League suggested that France now has the highest percentage in Western Europe — 37 percent — of people openly harboring anti-Semitic views. That compares with 8 percent in Britain, 20 percent in Italy and 27 percent in Germany.

Hey, all you libs that refused to visit South Africa during apartheid! Why are you vacationing in France? They are violent animals.

“I walked into my kosher sandwich shop the other day and the owner asked me, ‘Is it time to leave? Are we Nazi Germany yet?’?” said Shimon Samuels, the Paris-based international director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. “We’ve got the National Front in first place. We’ve got Dieudonné, spreading his hate. So I told him, ‘Well, do you really want to be the last to go?’?”

Let’s listen to the children, something that all good Lefties encourage:

“We’ve been thinking about moving for a long time, but the climate was not as dangerous as it is now,” said Alain, 30, a medical equipment specialist who is moving to Israel in July with his wife and three children. He declined to give his last name out of fear for his family’s security.

Sitting at his modest dining-room table in eastern Paris, a set of moving boxes in the next room, he added: “It bothers me because this is not normal; this is not how I remember France when I was growing up.”

Two weeks ago, Alain said, he woke up to find his 13-year-old daughter, Michele, crying. After a recent attack on two Jewish boys not far from her school, she said she was too afraid to join her regular car pool. Instead, she demanded that he take her to school and pick her up, standing guard as she entered and exited each day. He has moved his work schedule around to accommodate her request.

Asked what she was scared of, Michele, an elegant French teenager in a fashionable black skirt and white T-shirt, looked down and said: “I’m afraid that what happened in Toulouse will happen at my school, too. .?.?. I hear what people say about Jews. And I am scared.”

And here’s a personal anecdote, something to help other Americans understand how this feels. My oldest kid attending a Jewish day school for one year. In the early spring, someone left a note threatening to kill the Jewish children. This was in an affluent suburb of Boston. We finished the year but didn’t return. I can guarantee you that Jewish parents in France are completely torn. How difficult it is to lose your language, job, culture, and everything that it familiar to you. But that is so much easier than losing a child.

Not Fearing the Hashtag

Those leaked pictures of Obama working out were doubtless meant to terrify terrorists around the world. No more Mr. Nice Guy. From Community Organizer Man to the Ass Kicker.

The results are in:

Supporters of the Islamic extremist group ransacking Iraq were seen mocking the White House’s hashtag diplomacy with #bringbackourhumvee tweets early this morning.

Middle East and North America photo manager for the Agence France-Presse Patrick Baz said in a tweet that he had seen the #bringbackourhumvee meme on websites and twitter accounts supporting terrorist group Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

The hashtag is a play on the #bringbackourgirls campaign to rescue the 276 Nigerian girls being held captive in Nigeria by Islamic militant group Boko Haram.

The Nigerian girls never were rescued despite high profile displays of support for military intervention from the first lady and celebrities like Amy Poehler.

That’s how hardened and depraved these savages are. They are immune to the charms of Amy Poehler.

She looks pissed. Once you’ve lost Hollywood, Boko Haram, you’re days are numbered. I hear Matt Damon and Mark Wahlberg are in development on a script. See ya, wouldn’t want to be ya.

Really, Hugh? That might be the funniest pose you’ve ever taken. Well, second funniest:

President Eliza Doolittle

Doolittle by name, do-little by nature:

Just you wait, ‘enry ‘iggins, just you wait!
You’ll be sorry, but your tears’ll be to late!
You’ll be broke, and I’ll have money;
Will I help you? Don’t be funny!
Just you wait, ‘enry ‘iggins, just you wait!
Just you wait, ‘enry ‘iggins, till you’re sick,
And you scream to fetch a doctor double-quick.
I’ll be off a second later And go straight to the the-ater!
Oh ho ho, ‘enry ‘iggins, just you wait!

I have asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq’s security forces. And I’ll be reviewing those options in the days ahead… We’ll be monitoring the situation in Iraq very carefully over the next several days.

[A]lthough events on the ground in Iraq have been happening very quickly, our ability to plan — whether it’s military action or work with the Iraqi government on some of these political issues — is going to take several days. So people should not anticipate that this is something that is going to happen overnight.

So, he tells us he had no idea this was coming (even though this is the same breed of scum that’s been fighting in Syria for over a year), has no contingency plan (his “team” has to “prepare” a range of plans, rather then implement one of a range already prepared), and that he’s going to take his sweet time picking which chocolate he likes out of the assortment.

Just you wait, ISIS/ISIL:

Isn’t the president worried that by the time he resolves how to react to the situation as it existed on, say, Saturday, it will change, and/or worsen?

What pressing issues will take up the president’s time?

Wanna take a guess?

Finished with his remarks, Obama embarked from the White House to California – with a brief stop in North Dakota – where he will raise money for Democrats and presumably play some awesome golf.

We know this is at least a mini-vacation because Michelle is along for the trip. She doesn’t go anywhere with him these days unless there’s recreation involved.

Galavanting, fundraising, golfing—all while Iraq sinks into the ninth circle of Hell; Latin American children pour across the border and into cages and detention camps; the VA health system lies in disrepair, with well over 100,000 veterans either disgracefully overdue in seeing a doctor, or given no appointment at all; a federal agency (the IRS) in open revolt against the United States Congress (not to be confused with the Justice Department’s open revolt, or the EPA’s open revolt, or the State Department’s open revolt).

Joan Crawford was a beautiful young woman once. You would never have guessed what a frightening monster she would become.

Would you ever have believed Reagan’s Morning in America would turn into such a nightmare only thirty years later?
