Sick Administration [Update]

John Kerry says Israel risks becoming an apartheid state On Yom haShoah.

This is in the British press, presumably because the Democrats need Jewish voters in America. I wonder if the NY Times or NPR will report these remarks?

Israel risks evolving into an apartheid state if it fails to negotiate a two-state solution with the Palestinians to end the historic Jewish-Arab conflict, John Kerry, the US secretary of state has warned.
The highly inflammatory remarks, which seemed certain to provoke an angry reaction from Israeli leaders, followed last week’s near collapse of American-brokered peace talks, which Mr Kerry has energetically promoted.
Speaking at a meeting of senior international figures last Friday, America’s top diplomat said it was essential to pursue the two-state solution – commonly defined as Israel existing alongside a sovereign, independent Palestine – to avoid dire consequences.
“A two-state solution will be clearly underscored as the only real alternative,” said Mr Kerry, according to the Daily Beast, which broke the story. “Because a unitary state winds up either being an apartheid state with second class citizens – or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.” His remarks were made during a closed-door session of the trilateral commission, which included senior US, Western European, Russian and Japanese officials.

Know what is an Apartheid State? The wanna be state of “Palestine” which has an official no Jew policy. Saudi Arabia, our dear friend. Heck, are there any Arab states that aren’t apartheid?

Let’s look closer to home. Why doesn’t Kerry venture into any of the all-this-or-that areas of the United States? Who is he to criticize Israel? Just another Leftist windbag. I certainly hope that some of the MSM deigns to report Kerry’s antisemitic comments, along with the context that Israel pulled out because Abbas’s Fatah joined the genocidal Hamas organization. Or maybe our government prefers Genocide to Apartheid?

Update: Just to be clear, the Obama administration is calling Israel a potential apartheid state. So those are the choices: either negotiate with genocidal maniacs or be called names by the American idiots.

Who Want to be Abu Percy or Abu Bruce?

You know the expression, “if you’re going to be a bear, be a grizzly”? It means whatever you pursue, pursue it to the max. Grizzlies are, presumably, the baddest-ass bears of the forest.

Similarly, if you’re going to be a terrorist, be an Abu Jihad. A man of many accomplishments, and owner the best terrorist name this side of Mullah Dadullah. They’re both dead; their names die with them, unfortunately.

Palestinian Authority (PA) Chairman Mahmoud Abbas has granted a post-mortem honor to arch-terrorist Abu Jihad, who was responsible for the murder of at least 125 Israelis in numerous terror attacks that he planned, including a bus hijacking in 1978, in which 37 civilians were murdered.

Official PA TV News reported that Abbas, in order “to honor the founding leaders and the first generation of the Palestinian revolution and the PLO, and out of loyalty to their history of struggle,” chose to decorate Abu Jihad with “the highest order of the Star of Honor.”

At the ceremony, Abbas handed the award to Abu Jihad’s widow. Secretary-General of the Presidential Office, Tayeb Abd Al-Rahim, read aloud the “decree” signed by Abbas, calling terrorist Abu Jihad “the model of a true fighter and devoted leader,” and praising him for “his honorable national role”.

Among the military operations planned by Abu Jihad: the explosion at the Zohar reservoir in 1955; the operation to blow up the Israeli National Water Carrier in 1965; the operation at the Savoy Hotel in Tel Aviv, which killed 10 Israelis, in 1975; the blowing up of a truck bomb in Jerusalem in 1975; the killing of Albert Levi, the senior sapper, and his assistant, in Nablus in 1976; the Dalal Mughrabi operation (i.e., bus hijacking), in which more than 37 Israelis were killed, in 1978; the shelling of the Eilat Port in 1979; the Katyusha fire on the northern settlements [in Israel] in 1981…”

In a post earlier today (about Palestinian “honor” killings), I likened Arab occupiers to caged animals in the zoo. I regret that comparison. If Abu Jihad and his ilk were animals, they would have been put down long before (Israel did the world a favor and finally took him out in 1988).

This is like giving an award to a rabid pit bull. How do you make peace with such “people”? Why?

This will be my Christmas card to John Kerry this year:


Wishing you a very Dalal Mughrabi Christmas!

Salafist Sluts

Unlike Rush Limbaugh’s inappropriate designation of Sandra Fluke, this shoe fits:

Tunisian women have travelled to Syria to wage “sex jihad” by comforting Islamist fighters battling the regime there, Interior Minister Lotfi ben Jeddou has told MPs.

“They have sexual relations with 20, 30, 100″ militants, the minister told members of the National Constituent Assembly on Thursday.

“After the sexual liaisons they have there in the name of ‘jihad al-nikah’ — (sexual holy war, in Arabic) — they come home pregnant,” Ben Jeddou told the MPs.

Jihad al-nikah, permitting extramarital sexual relations with multiple partners, is considered by some hardline Sunni Muslim Salafists as a legitimate form of holy war.

A fetching young lass from Tunisia
From Damascus came home with amnesia;
With crabs, clap, and a bump,
UTI, and the mumps,
And no medicine but milk of magnesia!

[Try finding that on Instapundit!]

Hundreds of Tunisian men have also gone to join the ranks of the jihadists fighting to bring down the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

The jihadist love that dare not speak its name.

I could try to be all serious and ask how a great faith could be so corrupted to sink to such depths—but then it would be a different blog. I just want to know where they’re going to get the 19,604 virgins they’ve promised.

When Bad Things Happen to Good Jihadis

Al Qaeda in Tuscaloosa:

A rapping jihadist from Alabama who ascended the ranks of Somalia’s al-Qaida-linked militant group and was on the FBI’s most wanted list with a $5m (£3.2m) reward for his capture was reportedly killed on Thursday in an ambush ordered by the militant group’s leader.

Omar Hammami, a native of Daphne, Alabama, who was known as Abu Mansoor al-Amriki, or “the American”, died in southern Somalia following several months on the run after a falling out with al-Shabaab’s top leader, the militants said.

Reports of Hammami’s death crop up every few months in Somalia, only for him to resurface a short while later. But a US terrorism expert who closely follows the inner workings of al-Shabaab said he thought the current reports of the death were accurate.

“I think it’s very likely true based on the sources I am seeing,” said JM Berger, who runs the website Intelwire.com.

American jihadis doing the jobs that native jihadis won’t do:

Along with Adam Gadahn in Pakistan – a former Osama bin Laden spokesman – Hammami was one of the two most notorious Americans in jihad groups. He grew up in Daphne, a community of 20,000 outside Mobile, the son of a Christian mother and a Syrian-born Muslim father.

His YouTube videos that featured him rapping and his presence on Twitter made him one of the most recognisable and studied US foreign fighters. The US put Hammami on its most wanted terrorist list in March and offered a $5m reward for information leading to his capture.

Hammami moved from Alabama to Somalia and joined al-Shabaab in about 2006. He fought alongside al-Shabaab for years until they had a falling out amid signs of increasing tension between Somali and foreign fighters in the group. He first expressed fear for his life in a web video in March 2012 that publicised his rift with al-Shabaab.

The first serious attempt on his life was made in April.

“Just been shot in neck by shabaab assassin. not critical yet,” Hammami tweeted after the April attack. He later wrote on Twitter that the leader of al-Shabaab was sending in forces from multiple directions. “we are few but we might get back up. abu zubayr has gone mad. he’s starting a civil war,” Hammami posted.

Someone with “abu” in his name fomenting civil war???!? The world has gone mad!

Paper Airplanes of Mass Destruction

Remember the Stonehenge scene from Spinal Tap, when at the climactic point of the song an 18-inch model of a rock plinth, instead of a life-sized recreation, is lowered from the rafters?

Stonehenge, ’tis a magic place
Where the moon doth rise with a dragon’s face
Stonehenge where the virgins lie
And the prayer of devils fill the midnight sky

Something like that happened here:

German authorities staged raids on Tuesday after uncovering an alleged Islamist plot to carry out bomb attacks using model airplanes, federal prosecutors said, according to the AFP news agency.

Elite police units stormed nine sites in southern and eastern Germany, as well as in Belgium, based on suspicion of “preparation of grievous acts of anti-state violence” as well as money-laundering, the federal prosecutor’s office in the southwestern city of Karlsruhe said in a statement.

The searches targeted two men of Tunisian origin “suspected of acquiring information and objects with the aim of carrying out radical Islamist explosives attacks using remote-controlled model airplanes,” according to AFP.

Beyond the two men of Tunisian extraction, the searches also targeted four of their alleged contacts “on suspicion of financing militant jihad” as well as a fifth person accused of money-laundering, the report said.

Public broadcaster SWR reported that several of the suspects studied in Stuttgart, some of them specializing in aeronautics and doing internships in which they flew model airplanes using GPS navigation.

The German raids came one day after six people were arrested in the Paris region in coordinated raids on members of a suspected radical Islamist cell allegedly planning terrorist acts on French soil.

The suspects, aged between 22 and 38, were “all known to police for serious delinquency” and are being detained by the police anti-terrorist unit in the Paris suburb of Levallois.

The members of the suspected Islamist cell include one man from Benin, another from the Comoros and four French nationals, a source close to the case said.

I’m sure model airplanes can do plenty of damage if handled right (or wrong)—look what a couple of pressure cookers did in Boston—but still.

Osama bin Laden is shaking his bullet-ridden, barnacle-encrusted head.

Heads Were Lopped

Anthony Lane of The New Yorker writes a surprisingly dispassionate reaction to the Woolwich slaughter yesterday. You can read it if you choose.

But I found this comment on the piece very interesting indeed:

Astounding article. Cannot see how you did it without once mentioning Muslim, terrorists, jihad, or Islam. Truly an amazing dance around a central motivation. Accompanying this nuanced dance around several progressive unspeakables are a few more limp condiments: A man with bloody hands and who was holding knives and a meat cleaver is “alleged” to have murdered the man lying in the street behind him. Two men, bloodied, angry, shouting, and holding weapons are the “alleged attackers.

” What was that? It’s the New Yorker you say?? Oh, ok, sorry, haven’t had coffee yet.”

Lane does cite the Allahu Akbar shouts, and does quote in full the terrorist’s videotaped confession, but otherwise says nothing about Islam or jihad. Those subjects just lie there, untouched, like the lifeless body of the dead victim.

PS: Britons are Jews now:

Defence sources said the order had been given that uniform should not be worn by those travelling alone, or on public transport as a “common sense precaution” immediately after the killing.

The same advice is given to Jews living in Europe’s capitals. If you “dress Jewish”, you’re just asking for trouble.

What So-Called-Palestinian Women May and May Not Do

Mother, may I run a marathon?

No, you may not:

Following are excerpts from a report on the cancellation of the Gaza marathon, which aired on Al-Jadid/New TV on March 13, 2013:

Reporter: After lengthy negotiations between the Gaza government and UNRWA, the latter announced that the annual Gaza marathon, scheduled for next month, would be canceled. The event has already been held twice in the past two years, but the organizers were shocked when this year, the government imposed “regulations to preserve women’s modesty, and to prevent their mixing with men.” The government said that the participation of women runs counter to tradition, and was not relying directly on religious justifications.

UNRWA spokesman ‘Adnan Hasana: The authorities here in Gaza made it clear to us that they would not allow women to participate in the marathon. As a UN organization, we are committed to the laws of equality and non-discrimination on the basis of sex. Therefore, we decided not to comply, and to cancel the marathon.

Deputy Minister for Social Affairs Mustafa Al-Sawwaf: We are a conservative society that does not accept any form of nudity. The marathon brings together a group of men and women, and this, in itself, is forbidden, according to your values and our religion. This is why the government objected to the participation [of women] in this way.

Have you seen the typical build of a male or female marathoner? There’s nothing to see! There’s barely any difference between the two.

However: mother may I put “two in the hat” of Israeli leaders?

Yes, you may:

Following are excerpts from footage of a Hamas officers’ graduation ceremony, in which female snipers exhibited their skills by shooting at photos of Israeli leaders. The ceremony aired on Al-Aqsa TV on March 19, 2013.

Announcer: Now, brothers and sisters, we shall watch a shooting performance by sisters. The men are not the only ones in the battlefield. The sisters, the Muslim women, participate alongside the men in defending the soil of Palestine and our holy places.

Hamas PM Ismail Haniyeh is seen sitting next to Salafi Egyptian cleric Safwat Higazi, watching the show.

[…]

Two female snipers aim at a target consisting of a Star of David, with images of Israeli leaders attached to each point.

So-called Palestinians may not believe in nudity, but their disgusting immorality is bare for all to see.

NB: This was an official Hamass event broadcast (if you’ll pardon the pun) on official Hamass TV.

Put Them All Together They Spell MARTYR…

What’s that you say, sweetheart? Can’t hear you!

Following are excerpts from an interview with Umm Osama, the wife of Hamas MP Khalil Al-Hayya, which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on December 2, 2012.

Umm Osama: Women in Palestine play a great role in raising their children and in encouraging them to wage Jihad for the sake of Allah. This is absolutely the most glorious thing a woman can do. Women play their role and are not inferior to men. When a man goes to wage Jihad, his wife does not say “Don’t go” or try to stop him. She encourages and supports him. She is the one who prepares his equipment, bids him farewell, and welcomes [his Jihad].

She instills in her children the love of Jihad and martyrdom for the sake of Allah. If every mother were to prevent her son from waging Jihad for the sake of Allah, who would wage Jihad? Who would support Palestine? Palestine is dear to us, and its price is paid with our body remains and our lifeblood.

Is not Allah’s reward precious? Allah’s reward is Paradise. Paradise requires from us our blood, our body remains, and our efforts for its sake.

[...]

Sister, Jihad is ordained for us. It is our duty to wage Jihad, because either we wage Jihad or…

Interviewer: We want to die as martyrs.

Umm Osama: Indeed we do. I am constantly praying: “Allah, make the end of our days be in martyrdom.” I pray for this even for my husband and my children. None of us want to die in our beds. We pray that Allah will grant us Paradise.

We’d be happy to oblige, Umm, but do us a favor and take that king-sized bed-sheet off your head. Our drones have taken out three clotheslines and a boat slip trying to hunt you down!

PS: Love the name, though. I’m going to adapt it for when the president goes off teleprompter: Umm Obama.

Bait and Switch

Bait:

Last week, Erian caused a storm in Egypt when he said during a television interview that “it is better for Jews to live in a country like Egypt rather than in a country contaminated by occupation.”

He added that the Jews should return immediately to Egypt to “make way for the Palestinian people” and said, “Every Egyptian has the right to come back to Egypt, no matter what his religion.”

And switch:

The Islamic Jihad terrorist group has vowed to fight Jews if they return to Egypt, saying they deserve to be killed, the Egyptian daily Al-Masry Al-Youm reported Thursday.

The Islamic Jihad called on the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party’s Essam al-Erian to resign from his role as advisor to the president and apologize to the Egyptian people for his statement asking Egyptian Jews to leave Israel and reclaim their properties back at home.

In response, Mohamed Abou Samra, a leading figure in the Islamic Jihad said, according to Al-Masry Al-Youm, “We shall fight them vigorously if they return, especially the Egyptian-Israeli Jews. Islamic Sharia says they deserve to be killed.”

“They will destroy the economy and foment sedition,” said Samra, according to Al-Masry Al-Youm. “Their return will be over our dead bodies.”

Suit yourself.

This is just a simple misunderstanding; Islamic Jihad (nice name) needn’t worry about anyone fomenting anything. Jews are home in Israel. If they lived in Egypt, even for centuries, they were just renting.

After Morsi’s comments about Jews coming to light, we’re getting a better image of the emerging Egyptian beast. Slouching toward Bethlehem.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?

Trick question: nothing!

An inflammatory ad equating Islamic jihad with savagery was posted Monday in 10 New York City subway stations, even as much of the Muslim world was still seething over a California-made movie ridiculing the Prophet Mohammad.

The ad, sponsored by the pro-Israel American Freedom Defense Initiative, appeared after the Metropolitan Transit Authority lost a bid to refuse to post it on the grounds that it violated the agency’s policy against demeaning language. In July, a federal judge ruled it was protected speech and ordered the MTA to place the posters.

The ad, featuring mostly black-and-white lettering on 46-by-30-inch (117-by-72-cm) cardboard posters, will remain posted for a month, MTA spokeswoman Marjorie Anders said.

“In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man,” the ad reads. “Support Israel/Defeat Jihad.”

Pamela Geller, executive director for the ad’s sponsor group, rejected the MTA’s assertion the posters were demeaning. “There’s nothing either hateful or false about my ad,” Geller said in an email.

Despite the controversy, most subway riders who passed the ad in a tunnel at the Times Square station Monday failed to notice it. Those who did were generally critical.

“Where is the protection of religion in America?” wondered Javerea Khan, 22, a Pakistani-born Muslim from the Bronx. “The word ‘savage’ really bothers the Muslim community. But it’s hard for me to look at this poster and take it seriously.”

Mel Moore, 29, a sports agent, said: “It’s not right, but it’s freedom of speech. To put it on a poster is just not right. But it caught my attention and I support freedom of speech, so you got to live with it.”

Those two quotes are perfect together. The Muslim person looks for protection for his/her religion; the other person allows for protected speech.

But I don’t see what’s controversial. Is jihad (as it is most commonly practiced) not savage? In what dictionary is suicide bombing, family slaughtering, baby stoning, kindergarten shelling, woman terrorizing, soldier lynching, ambulance and baby carriage arming, refugee exploiting, etc., etc. not savagery?

It would seem to me that the statement “In any war between the civilized man and the savage, support the civilized man” is manifestly true. For Muslims as much as anyone else. Considering Muslims are the most-suffering victims of other Muslims, more so.

1979 Fashion Statement


The cardigan!

BTL wondered what hemlines were in the 1970s. A bigger question is how we managed to stay warm during the oil embargo? Our fearless leader led the way. Jimmy donned cardigans!

Gentle Reader, we in Bloodthirstan have always been helpful to the cause. Perhaps if we all pooled our pennies, we could send Barack Obama a nice selection of fall cardigans? Size very, very small. All in hip colors, the colors you would expect to find in a hipster neighborhood of Brooklyn.

ANother 1979 fashion statement:

Or maybe we should show up at Obama campaign events in ugly cardigans and big teeth?

We Have a Winner!

And the dead terrorist is…?

You know what? I don’t give a rat’s ass what his name was. His name can drift to the bottom of the ocean of obscurity as far as I’m concerned (though the Arabs will have a summer camp named after him before you can say Dalal Mughrabi).

It’s what he’s done what counts:

[Pig's-arse, not his real name] was reportedly a Swedish citizen, with Algerian and Finnish origins. He had been held at the US’s Guantanamo Bay detainment camp on Cuba from 2002 to 2004, having previously studied at a Muslim religious school and mosque in Britain, and traveled to Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan, and Pakistan. He was also reportedly among 12 foreigners captured trying to cross into Afghanistan in 2009.

We had this douche-bag in Gitmo and we let him go! I hope the ACLU is proud! And we had him in custody again three years ago. The Israeli tourists didn’t have to die.

There is so much about this that is telling. He was a devout Swedish Moslem (from Malmo, perhaps?), who studied in mosques and madrassahs, and who made no secret of his wish for jihad.

Israel is still fingering Iran, and I know they’re right. He doesn’t seem to have come across his US documents (passport, Michigan ID) legitimately.
