Arab Heads Exploding

Metaphorically.

And literally:

As Saudi Arabia carried out airstrikes in Yemen Wednesday against Houthi forces, an official from the Shiite rebel group said they would exact revenge on “the Zionist Saudi regime,” the Israeli Ynet news site reported.

The “Zionist Saudi regime” has been the greatest exporter of virulent Islam, notable not least for its white-hot Jew-hatred, for decades. But even that shared trait is not enough to bridge the Sunni-Shiite divide.

Saudi Arabia launched an operation early Thursday to save the government of embattled President Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi as the country teetered on the brink of civil war after the Iran-backed separatists overran the southern stronghold of Aden.

The Houthi official promised there would be no pilgrimage to the holy Saudi city Mecca this year.

Anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish rhetoric is common among the Houthis. The slogan “Death to Israel. A curse on the Jews.” is common on flags and other propaganda materials.

Last week, video of the bombing of a Houthi mosque in Yemen showed the crowd chanting “Death to America. Death to Israel. Curse upon the Jews. Victory to Islam. Allahu Akbar,” before a suicide bomber detonated himself, killing scores.

QED. The crowd was entirely on message, and they still got blown to kingdom come. Atta boys.

PS: No hajj for you!

#BringBackOur(Boysand)Girls

Hashtags and lame Twitter campaigns are soooo 2014:

About 500 children aged 11 and under are missing from a Nigerian town recaptured from militants, a former resident of Damasak has told the BBC.

A trader in the north-eastern town told Reuters news agency that Boko Haram fighters took the children with them when they fled.

The senator representing the north of Borno state, Maina Maaji Lawan, told the BBC’s Nigeria correspondent, Will Ross, that the case in Damasak was typical and many hundreds of children were missing.

He said: “The very young ones they give to madrassas [Islamic schools]… and male ones between 16 and 25, they conscript them and they indoctrinate them as supply channels for their horrible missions.”

Boko Haram caused international outrage in April 2014 after it abducted more than 200 girls from a boarding school in Chibok town in north-eastern Nigeria’s Borno state.

Last week, the decomposing bodies of more than 70 people were discovered under a bridge near Damasak.

It is widely believed that these were civilians killed by the militants, our correspondent says.

Good scoop, Carl Bernstein.

Isn’t the world a happier place not obsessing about Boko Haram’s atrocities? I won’t bum you out by re-posting Michelle’s melancholy puss, but how many times since Chibok could she have held up the same white board, with the same hangdog look, but with a different lame, impotent plea? A whole lotta times.

Thousands of empty-headed narcissists will be stretching on their yoga mats and nibbling their free-range kale untroubled by the news of 500 missing children sold into slavery or conscripted into battle. Please, no one mention it to them. I don’t think I could take the self-aggrandizing pity.

Well, maybe one or two.

Tales From the Coming Caliphate

Tale one of 1,001:

About 80 children rescued from a Boko Haram camp in Cameroon cannot remember their own names or origins, according to an aid official who visited them.

The children – aged between 5 and 18 – did not speak English, French or any local languages, says Christopher Fomunyoh, a director for the US-based National Democratic Institute (NDI).

The children were found at a camp in northern Cameroon in November.

The children were rescued in Cameroon after security forces – acting on a tip-off – raided what was thought to have been a Koranic school.

Mr Fomunyoh told the BBC’s Randy Joe Sa’ah in Yaounde that he had visited an orphanage that was helping rehabilitate the children.

He said the children had spent so long with their captors, being indoctrinated in jihadist ideology, that they had lost track of who they were.

“They’ve lost touch with their parents,” he said. “They’ve lost touch with people in their villages, they’re not able to articulate, to help trace their relationships, they can’t even tell you what their names are.”

The good news is that they don’t know who Justin Bieber is either. Be thankful for that.

This is the perfect example of modern Islamist ideology (which is to say medieval Islamic ideology). There is no self, no identity, no family, nothing so frivolous as childhood. There is only jihad. George Orwell, meet Sayyid Qutb.

You want kids? Take ‘em. Or take some women and breed your own (after converting the infidel females to Islam, of course). And if you’ve got any women left over…

Meanwhile, a suspected Boko Haram attack on Tuesday killed at least six people at a marketplace in the northern Nigerian town of Maiduguri.

The suicide bombing was reportedly carried out by a middle-aged woman.

It used to be called “the change of life” for women reaching middle age; now, it’s the end of life. Talk about a hot flash!

Homosexuality is a Choice

I don’t agree with Dr. Ben Carson.

But I don’t agree with ISIS a whole lot more:

The photographs released by ISIS in its stronghold of Raqqa are dated March 2015. The first ones show a large crowd, mostly men, but also among them a handful of women and children, all looking up.

Three men on top of a building, faces covered in black balaclavas, stand on either side of their victim, while a fourth seems to be taking a photo or video.

Their victim is thrown off the building. In the last photograph, he is seen face down, surrounded by a small crowd of men, most carrying weapons, some with rocks in their hands. The caption reads “stoned to death.”

The victim brutally killed because he was accused of being gay.

There are at least half a dozen documented cases of men being similarly killed by ISIS. What’s even more sickening for Nour, a gay Syrian man, is the onlookers’ reaction.

“It’s too much to watch, and people are just standing there in these images and watching, and they are not doing anything, and their facial expressions are really scary because they are not even scared of what is going on,” says Nour, who’s also an LGBT rights activist. “They might be a little bit excited or maybe happy to get rid of homosexuals in the city.”

ISIS throws its gays off rooftops to their deaths. We force pious pastry chefs to bake their wedding cakes and faithful florists to provide the flowers. If a wedding singer with strong religious leanings balked at singing “You Light Up My Life” at a gay nuptials, we’d more likely throw him off the roof than the happy couple.

Our values are better than theirs, but if you take the case of the singer, are they really values at all? Nice voice you got there…shame if something…you know…happened to it.

PS: Carson at least had the decency to apologize:

“I do not pretend to know how every individual came to their sexual orientation. I regret that my words to express that concept were hurtful and divisive. For that I apologize unreservedly to all that were offended,” he added.

ISIS, too, is sorry—that it had only one queer to toss. They’ll move on to metrosexuals next.

Nim-Nim-Nimrud Goodbye

Nim-Nim-Nimrud don’t cry:

ISIS has again destroyed cultural treasures, this time bulldozing the site of the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud in northern Iraq, the nation’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities said.

“ISIS continues to defy the will of the world and the feelings of humanity,” the ministry said in a statement. “They violated the ancient city of Nimrud and bulldozed its ancient ruins.”

The extent of the damage wasn’t immediately clear, according to Iraq’s state broadcaster Iraqiya TV.

“Our ministry condemns these criminal acts,” the statement said. “Letting these lost gangs go without punishment will encourage them to destroy humanity’s civilization, the Mesopotamian civilization, inflicting irreversible priceless damages and losses.”

Thank god, one brave heroine, a Joan of Assyria, put herself between civilization and barbarism:

Ha, just kidding. The late Rachel Corrie would likely have approved of ISIS. After all, she gave her life defending Arab terrorists in Gaza. Can’t get more barbaric than that.

Nimrud and nearby Nineveh are the sites where two Assyrian kings, Sennacherib (704-681 B.C.) and Ashurnasirpal II (883-859 B.C.), recorded successful military campaigns on the walls of their palaces, according to the World Monuments Fund, a group dedicated to saving the world’s most treasured places.

“Depicted in the reliefs are marauding troops in foreign lands, rendered in a style marked by lively action and attention paid to topographic and ethnographic detail,” the fund’s website says.

Turn about is fair play. How do you like “marauding troops in foreign lands” now, huh, Sennacherib?

Shut Up, They Explained

You were saying?

A Jewish activist in Pakistan was savagely beaten by a Muslim mob Wednesday – and then arrested and roughed up again by police.

Fishel Benkhald – who is leading a one-man campaign to preserve the old Jewish cemetery in Pakistan’s largest city, Karachi – has been a vocal activist for minority rights in the country, which is overwhelmingly Sunni Muslim and where minorities such as Christians, Hindus and non-Sunni Muslims are routinely persecuted.

Speaking to Arutz Sheva Thursday, Benkhald – the son of a Muslim father and a Jewish mother, but who identifies as Jewish – told how he had agreed to a face-to-face debate with a Muslim Pakistani man after a discussion on the topic of minority rights on Twitter.

The two agreed to continue a friendly discussion at a restaurant in Karachi. But when he got there, Benkhald soon found himself ambushed.

“I went there alone but he was with his friends, we started the debate in a normal discussion manner but soon it got heated up and cursing started.”

At that point, a “mob” began to gather around him “and two of the guys who were with him started manhandling me – I should have left at that time.

“They started punching me and when I fell they started kicking my head. Someone also tried to snatch away my mobile.”

At that point police arrived, but instead of arresting his attackers, they detained Benkhald.

“The police came and took me away, they didn’t take the other guys. The police asked me if I am from Israel or from any other country. I told them that I am a Pakistan and am Jewish from (my) mother’s side but registered as a Muslim in Pakistan.”

Blindfolded and cuffed, he was then handed over to Pakistan’s Rangers paramilitary force, who continued questioning him about his ethnic origins, and going through his social media pages after demanding his passwords.

“They beat me, but not much,” claims Benkhald, and accused him of being a spy for either Israel, the US or India.

The number of non-Muslims in the entire nation of Pakistan could fit inside a local diner and still leave room at the counter for any Muslims hankering for eggs and bacon. But that’s still too many for the (officially named) Islamic Republic of Pakistan. Too many for any Islamic Republic, if you get my drift.

PS: You can hear Benkhald’s recording of the encounter here.

Who Says They Don’t?

We’re the caliphate and we’re okay
We sleep all night and we work all day
We chop off heads, we wear high heels,
Suspenders and a bra.
We wish we’d been a girlie
Just like our dear papa.

Isis was a goddess you know. Just sayin’.

In its efforts to dislodge ISIS from the vast swathes of land it seized with little difficulty last year in Iraq, the Iraqi army has come to rely heavily on a range of Iranian-backed Shia Islamist militias. The militias are funded, trained and armed by Iran – and even, in some cases, commanded directly by Iranian Revolutionary Guards officers.

At least one Shia militia, however, has been overlooked by Tehran: the Al-Mukhtar Army, which has had a bumpy relationship with both Baghdad and Tehran. Its leader, Watheq Al-Battat, took to Iraqi TV to air his grievances – and issue a creative appeal for support.

In a speech which also included a brief reference to Adolf Hitler as a “hero”, Al-Battat promised that if his fighters were granted the same arms given to other Shia militias, they would need just one month to defeat ISIS… and make them wear women’s clothes – among other creative punishments.

“I swear by Allah that if I had those weapons, I would destroy ISIS. I swear by Hussein, I would make ISIS wear women’s clothing… I will make donkeys out of them… I will build them detention camps in which I will feed them barley.

Maybe Jihadi John wants to be Jihadi Jane. I could suggest a head for him to cut off that might solve his problem.

Anyway, a diet of barley isn’t all bad.

I love the way this lunatic talks (except for the Hitler as hero talk), but as Bibi put it: the enemy of my enemy is my enemy.

What Are the Odds???

That the folks shot in cold blood in a kosher deli were Jewish?

Boy, will Obama be red-faced—uh, embarrassed:

Chilling new details from a deadly terrorist attack at the Hyper Cacher kosher supermarket in Paris last month emerged Friday when a reported transcript of footage from the incident surfaced.

In the nearly eight-minute-long video filmed on a GoPro camera by Amedy Coulibaly, the Islamist gunman can reportedly be seen shooting three of the four victims and delivering an anti-Semitic rant.

The footage shows Coulibaly first grabbing hold of a customer, requesting his name, and then shooting him dead, reports said. The gunman goes on to ask another man for his origin, then kills him after the man replies “Jewish,” according to the BBC, quoting French reports.

“So you know why I am here then, Allahu Akbar,” Coulibaly proceeds to shout, according to a Le Nouvel Observateur report. The gunman can also be heard making anti-Semitic remarks as hostages cry out that the victims have done no wrong.

Coulibaly reportedly told a French journalist at the height of the siege that he had deliberately chosen to target Jews.

This administration has an unfortunate streak of blaming Islamic terrorism on anything else—a YouTube video, knishes, folks. I wish he would indulge his delusions on his own time—perhaps during those hours of golf. The rest of us aren’t interested.

Europe Furious That Netanyahu Wants Jews To Leave Europe

The very definition of chutzpah

The Metro is the free paper which is available in the tube, in London. Here’s the front page:

metro

Once again, a European Jewish community has been targeted by Islamist terrorism, this time in the Danish capital Copenhagen. For Metro, however, the story isn’t about 37-year-old Dan Uzan, murdered as he stood guard outside a synagogue.

No, it’s all about Benjamin Netanyahu and the opportunity to turn his call for European Jews to make Aliyah into the issue of the day. And splashed all over the front page no less.

And what about The Guardian? Simon Tisdall is the assistant editor and a foreign affairs columnist. His reaction to the Copenhagen terror attack reveals so much about the current trend of thought that still blames the victims for the terror.

Some choice excerpts:

The Copenhagen gunman may turn out to have a similar background [to those of the Paris terrorists], and likewise to have been a lone loose cannon. No terrorist group has claimed responsibility. But the febrile backdrop against which this individual’s crime took place is only too evident: a shooting war with Islamists across large swaths of the Muslim world, growing Islamophobia in western Europe, ever greater polarisation over Israel-Palestine – especially since last year’s Gaza conflict – and a linked rise in antisemitism. [See, it’s the Jew’s fault – Aggie]

To further buttress his willful blindness, Tisdall writes:

David Cameron and Barack Obama lined up on Sunday to defend these values [freedom of speech and religion]. They might be more usefully employed in acknowledging that many current problems can be traced back to the Anglo-American destabilisation of post-2003 Iraq and to the west’s connivance in the suppression of Arab spring pro-democracy uprisings.

But perhaps most insultingly, Tisdall concludes:

In the short term, calls for increased security for frightened Jewish communities, including in Britain, are wholly understandable. Muslim communities deserve similar consideration. [For what? Are they shooting themselves? – Aggie]

Admittedly, this is typical European appeasement and antisemitism, but the NY Times is no better:

When Aydin Soei, a sociologist in Denmark, met members of an inner-city gang in 2008, one teenage tough stood out as more intelligent than his peers, and more mercurial. He showed little interest in Islam, but a deep loathing for Denmark, the country where he was born and spent his entire life.

On Sunday, that former gang member, Omar Abdel Hamid el-Hussein, died in a gun battle with Danish police officers just a few hundred yards from his boyhood home in Norrebro, an immigrant area of the Danish capital. It was the final, bloody episode of a short and angry life that included street crime and macho violence and ended with a 15-hour explosion of militancy on the streets of Copenhagen.

As the authorities across Europe try to figure out how radical Islam turns a tiny but dangerous minority of young Muslims into terrorists, Mr. Soei, the sociologist, said that Mr. Hussein, 22, was an exemplar of a phenomenon of Europe’s urban neighborhoods, not a product of the teachings of the Quran or their distortions by militant preachers.

“This wasn’t an intellectual Islamist with a long beard,” Mr. Soei said. “This was a loser man from the ghetto who is very, very angry at Danish society.”

And more BS at the link. Many paragraphs in, they finally mention that his gang, called “Brothas” held a vigil outside the synagogue where he was shot, and shouted Allahu Akbar! But not to worry, they are just the poor ghetto kids of Europe.

Now, some of you are younger than BTL and I, and don’t recall the Leftie line of 2001, right after the 9/11 terror attacks. Then we were assured that terrorism was all about poverty, racism, etc. The Left gave it up slowly, as it became obvious that the 9/11 terrorists were well-to-do men, with educations, etc. Now it is back in style, apparently.

I don’t doubt that Europe is a fascist cesspool; we know that it is. But terrorism is just a technique and all sorts of people can play. In today’s world, most of them are radical Muslims. Another way to say this is that instead of dealing drugs or mugging old ladies, radical Muslims prefer shooting Jews and beheading Christians.

And They Just Released The Name Of The Danish Terrorist… Gunner Gunnerson! Not.

His name is Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein and he’s Lutheran.

BERLIN – The specter of lethal anti-Semitism has once again engulfed Europe, with the latest murder of the Danish Jew Dan Uzan who was guarding the Copenhagen synagogue. His death along with another Dutch civilian has been attributed to a Danish terrorist Omar Abdel Hamid El-Hussein believed to have been animated by radical Islam.

To understand the continuation of violent anti-Semitism, the German philosopher Theodor W. Adorno said in post-Holocaust Europe, “We will not have come to terms with the past until the causes of what happened then are no longer active. Only because these causes live on does the spell of the past remain, to this very day, unbroken.”

What has filled the vacuum since Europe has relegated Nazism to a largely meaningless status, is the rise of Islamic-animated anti-Semitism enabled by an indifferent mainstream public coupled with an aggressive European Left. Anti-Jewish forces have turned Israel into a human punching bag.

Yep. And that is why we have to refuse to visit Europe (and I was guilty last year, but won’t be repeating the error), refuse to buy their products, discuss this with others, and firmly challenge Israel-bashing when it rears its ugly head. This includes during social engagements. We must let friends know that we’ve had enough.

Here’s some examples from modern Europe:

A telling example came from Austria on Tuesday. A spokesman for the prosecutor’s office in Linz declared a Turkish man’s call to annihilate the Jewish state and kill Jews merely an expression of “displeasure with Israel.”
In early February, a German court in Wuppertal agreed with the explanation offered by three Palestinians that their torching of the local synagogue was a form of protest against Israel’s Operation Protective Edge to stop Hamas rocket fire. The men received a penalty of 200 hours community service.

Try torching a mosque and see what the penalty will be.

A bit more:

Denmark falls into the top four EU countries in terms of jihadist output for the Syrian war theater. In July, Sheikh Abu Bilal Ismail, a Danish imam called for the extermination of the Jews at Berlin’s al-Nur mosque in July.

Ismail said it was necessary to “destroy the Zionist Jews…” and to “count them and kill them to the very last one. Don’t spare a single one of them…. Make them suffer terribly.” He returned to Denmark to continue to preach.

While controversy in Europe surrounds Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s remarks about encouraging Danish Jews to immigrate, Steinberg offered a historical perspective.

“From the time of Herzl, one of the core principles of Zionism is that in order to defend our rights and our lives, Jews must be have sovereignty and self-determination. There are of course other reasons for making aliya, but if Jewish lives cannot be protected in Europe, Israel provides a haven. On this, there is no difference between Likud and Labor; between Netanyahu and [Isaac] Herzog,” he said.

I think that those of us who do not make Aliyah can simply boycott Europe. It is nuts for Jews to drive Mercedes, drink French wine, eat Holland peppers, vacation anywhere on the continent. If we were serious and vocal about this, perhaps their governments might locate their balls.

Palestinian Terror Attack On Israeli Bus

During the Palestinian terror war, bus bombings happened almost daily, along with cafe bombings, school bombings, grocery store bombings, etc. I wonder if what happened to the unfortunate Jordanian pilot can help people understand? Nah.
