Ramadan Body Count

It’s a time of fasting and prayer and…well, you know. Since the evening of June 17, when the holiday began, let’s count the corpses.

Remember the killing spree in Graz, Austria? Me neither:

The Graz van attack occured on June 20, 2015, as Alen Rizvanovi? drove a SUV at high speed through the center of Graz, killing three people in a matter of minutes and injuring 36 others, some of them seriously.

The perpetrator, Alen Rizvan Rizvanovi?, now 26, had fled his Bosnian home Bihac at the age of four together with his parents and moved to Austria, where he became an Austrian citizen and where he worked as a driver. He was under a restraining order keeping him away from the home of his wife and two young children ever since a domestic violence report was filed against him last month. One of the reasons for his violence was that he wanted his wife to wear an Islamic headscarf.

There are claims from witnesses that Rizvanovi? had shifted to a stricter interpretation of Islam.

I was inclined to exclude this one, but as the body count is small, why not count them?

The Taliban are always good for random killings. Why, just five days ago:

On June 22, 2015, the Taliban detonated a car bomb outside the National Assembly in Kabul, and Taliban fighters attacked the building with assault rifles and RPGs.

The UN mission in Afghanistan says a woman and a child were killed in the attack, and 40 civilians were injured.

Afghan Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqqi said said all seven attackers were killed by police and no MPs were wounded.

Keep your wounded out of this. We just want the dead. That’s nine more (including the seven terrorists).

Bobko Haram has been quiet lately. Wassup wid you guyz?

At least 42 people were shot dead by suspected Boko Haram gunmen in attacks on two villages in northeast Nigeria’s restive Borno state, a police officer and a resident who fled said on Wednesday.

Restive. I’ll say!

But you can’t touch ISIS when it comes to stiffs:

On 25 June 2015, fighters from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant detonated three car bombs in Kobanî, close to the Turkish border crossing. [2] It has been reported by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights that the attack killed at least 146 civilians.[3] Kurdish forces and the Syrian government claimed the vehicles had entered the city from across the border, an action denied by Turkey.[4] IS also committed a massacre in the village of Barkh Butan, about 20 kilometres south of Kobanî, executing at least 23 Syrian Kurds, among them women and children.

That’s a subtotal of 169.

223

Then, yesterday dawned.

In France:

On the morning of 26 June 2015, at around 9:30 local time, a Muslim delivery truck driver gained entrance to the grounds of an Air Products factory in Saint-Quentin-Fallavier near the city of Lyon in a van, with his 54-year-old boss also inside the van. He had decapitated his boss, and stepped out of the vehicle to pin the head to one of the factory fences alongside two jihadi banners. The severed head had a cloth thrown over it with the Shahada written on it: “There is no God but God and Muhammad is his prophet,” while the body and a knife were found on the ground nearby. The driver then got back in the van and attempted to blow up the building by ramming several gas cylinders, causing explosions.

In Kuwait:

A suicide mosque bombing took place on 26 June 2015 in Kuwait at a Shia mosque. Islamic State has claimed responsibility for the attack.

A suicide bomber attacked the Shia Imam Ja’far as-Sadiq mosque in the Sawabir district of Sharg area in Capital Governorate.[10] The attack occurred during Friday prayers during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, factors that made the mosque more crowded than usual.[8] At least eight people were immediately killed in the blast [now 24], which heavily damaged parts of the building.

In Tunisia:

On 26 June 2015, the Riu Imperial Marhaba Hotel, a five-star property at Port El Kantaoui, a tourist complex situated on the coast about ten kilometres north of Sousse, Tunisia, was hosting 565 guests mainly from Western Europe and was occupied at a rate of 77%.[21] Tourists from the hotel as well as from the Soviva Hotel located nearby went to the beach to swim and sunbathe.[22]

At around noon, 22-year-old Seifeddine Rezgui (also known as Abu Yahya al-Qayrawani[23]) from Kairouan,[24] disguised as a tourist,[25] socialized with others, then he took out a Kalashnikov rifle from under a beach umbrella and opened fire on the tourists on the beach.[21] He entered the hotel, shooting at every individual.[21] He was later killed by security forces after an exchange of fire.[21] It is suspected that another gunman took part in the attack.[2][26]

Forty people, mostly Western tourists, were killed.

And in Somalia:

Al Shabaab militants attacked an African Union Mission to Somalia base in the Leego district of Somalia and killed more than 70 African Union soldiers [actually, only 30] and seized control of their military base on 26 June 2015.[1][2][3] A military outpost with around 100 Burundian soldiers was attacked by militants with a car bomb, machine guns and RPGs.

Three other Islamist attacks took place on the same day in France, Tunisia, and Kuwait. The attacks followed an audio message released three days earlier by ISIL senior leader Abu Mohammad al-Adnani encouraging militants everywhere to attack during the month of Ramadan.

So, that’s 96 dead yesterday, added to our running total of 223…

319 dead people And let’s not be so heartless not even to mention the wounded: 394

In ten days’ time.

But why stop there?

A series of attacks targeting public places killed 12 people in Baghdad on Saturday, said Iraqi authorities, as the prime minister announced the arrest of an aide to Saddam Hussein.

Ramadan continues through July 17th. You’ve been warned.

PS: I set the over/under at 1,000. Who wants action?

PPS: Dylann Roof shoots nine people dead in cold blood, not out of any love for the Confederacy, yet the Confederate flag goes into hiding. We’re at 319 people dead at the hands of Muslim terrorists (many of the dead Muslims themselves), but do symbols of Islam seem on the wane to you? Me neither.

Rotherham Men

Local radio host and columnist, Howie Carr, borrows the euphemisms liberal media use to describe illegal aliens who get in trouble with the law. Rather than describing them as illegals or naming their country of origin, the Boston Gob and others call a particular drunk driver who killed a motorcyclist “Milford man”, after the unfortunate community where the reprobate happens to squat. Just another Michael Patrick O’Herlihy who had a few pints too many down the pub.

So this BBC story can’t quite bring itself to name the “Rotherham men” who raped, pimped, and “buggered” hundreds to thousands of young girls:

About 300 possible suspects have been identified in an investigation into child sex abuse in Rotherham, the National Crime Agency (NCA) has said.

The agency said two of those under investigation were serving or former Rotherham councillors.

The inquiry, named Operation Stovewood, began in December in the wake of the Jay report which found 1,400 children were abused from 1997 to 2013.

Police said that estimate “remains a very good assessment”.

The NCA said it had identified more than 3,300 lines of inquiry.

Other accounts suggest that the men were “Asian”, which tends to mean one thing in America and another thing in Britain.

Care to meet some of the “Asian men” under suspicion?

A major trial into allegations of historic child sexual exploitation offences in Rotherham will start later this year.

The trial, which is likely to involve several defendants, is scheduled to start in December at Sheffield Crown Court and last up to seven weeks.

It comes as one of three brothers charged as part of the investigation appeared at Sheffield Crown Court this morning.

Bannaras Hussain, 35, of Bridge Close, Goole, has been charged with 22 offences alleged to have occurred between 1998 and 2002 involving six complainants.

The charges against him include three counts of rape, four counts of aiding and abetting rape, nine counts of indecent assault, two counts of assault and four counts of procuring a woman for prostitution. The preliminary hearing at the Crown Court yesterday saw Hussain remanded in custody with no application for bail made.

His older brother Arshid Hussain, 40, of High Street, East Cowick, Goole, is due to appear at Rotherham Magistrates Court on Thursday. He has been charged with 45 offences relating to child sexual exploitation, including indecent assault, unlawful sexual intercourse and unlawful imprisonment.

Sageer Hussain, 29, of Bridge Close, Goole, has been charged with four counts of rape of a girl under 16 in 2003 and will appear at Rotherham Magistrates Court on July 9.

Just four counts—what’s Sageer’s problem?

Others took up the slack:

A man has been charged with 11 offences relating to historic child sexual exploitation in Rotherham.

Sajid Bostan, of Vernon Road, Rotherham, has now been bailed and will appear at Rotherham Magistrates’ Court on Thursday, June 25.

Police have charged the 38-year-old with 11 offences, including unlawful sexual intercourse with a girl under the age of 13, indecent assault and buggery.

It is alleged that the offences occurred between 1990 and 2001.

It would appear this was largely an “Asian” affair, if that’s the word, and the police were unsure how to intervene:

Reports by Jay and Louise Casey, the government’s lead on troubled families, criticised police and other agencies in Rotherham for turning a blind eye to abuse for fear of upsetting relations with the local Pakistani community.

At the press conference on Wednesday, officers were reluctant to divulge the ethnicities of suspected abusers or their alleged victims.

Asked about the ethnicity of the 1,400 victims, Baldwin said: “The victims are local people from Rotherham.” After being repeatedly pressed on the issue by reporters he said: “I suspect that the ethnicity on the whole is of white British origin.”

After refusing to say if all of the potential suspects were of Asian background, Baldwin was accused by one reporter of not properly addressing the investigation’s race dimension in the investigation, just as Rotherham council had not acted for fear of upsetting racial sensitivities.

Baldwin denied the allegation, saying: “The majority of potential suspects appear to be of Asian appearance. However, we are still researching further suspects.”

To summarize (you taking notes, BBC?), Pakistani men have been sexually and violently terrorizing white British girls for years—years—while the police did nothing for fear of inflaming local Pakistani (a-ha!) sentiments. It would have been just as bad had the Pakistani men raped and buggered their own girls—but it’s telling that they didn’t.

Hundreds of men; thousands of girls; year after year. And no one stopped it.

Mark Steyn, among others, notes how certain immigrants keep their native cultures, rather than adopt the quaint habits of their adopted lands. I don’t know about Pakistan for sure, but I’m pretty certain rampant rape and sodomy on 13-year-old girls is not a Yorkshire pastime. A weird lot, to be sure—they love their cricket. But buggery of the Barbie set? Nowt that queer.

Our Friends, Hezbollah

Saw reference to this at Caroline Glick’s Facebook page:

The Americans are providing close air support and training Hezbollah. They are even sharing a military base.

No way!

Way:

The U.S. military and Iranian-backed Shiite militias are getting closer and closer in Iraq, even sharing a base, while Iran uses those militias to expand its influence in Iraq and fight alongside the Bashar al-Assad regime in neighboring Syria.

Two senior administration officials confirmed to us that U.S. soldiers and Shiite militia groups are both using the Taqqadum military base in Anbar, the same Iraqi base where President Obama is sending an additional 450 U.S. military personnel to help train the local forces fighting against the Islamic State. Some of the Iran-backed Shiite militias at the base have killed American soldiers in the past.

Some inside the Obama administration fear that sharing the base puts U.S. soldiers at risk. The U.S. intelligence community has reported back to Washington that representatives of some of the more extreme militias have been spying on U.S. operations at Taqqadum, one senior administration official told us. That could be calamitous if the fragile relationship between the U.S. military and the Shiite militias comes apart and Iran-backed forces decide to again target U.S. troops.

American critics of this growing cooperation between the U.S. military and the Iranian-backed militias call it a betrayal of the U.S. personnel who fought against the militias during the 10-year U.S. occupation of Iraq.

“It’s an insult to the families of the American soldiers that were wounded and killed in battles in which the Shia militias were the enemy,” Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain told us. “Now, providing arms to them and supporting them, it’s very hard for those families to understand.”

The militias comprise largely Shiite volunteers and are headed by the leader of the Iraqi Hezbollah, Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis.

James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, confirmed in a June 3 letter to seven Republican senators, which we obtained, that “Iran and Hezbollah have also leveraged allied Iraqi Shiia militant and terrorist groups — which receive training in Iran — to participate in pro-Assad operations.”

Can anyone make sense of Obama’s policy? I mean, it clearly adds up to being pro-Iran and anti-Israel, but what sense does that make? Is Michael Oren right that Obama is trying to appease the Muslim father figures of his youth?

“Obama’s attitudes toward Islam clearly stem from his personal interactions with Muslims. These were described in depth in his candid memoir, ‘Dreams from My Father,’ published 13 years before his election as president. Obama wrote passionately of the Kenyan villages where, after many years of dislocation, he felt most at home and of his childhood experiences in Indonesia. I could imagine how a child raised by a Christian mother might see himself as a natural bridge between her two Muslim husbands. I could also speculate how that child’s abandonment by those men could lead him, many years later, to seek acceptance by their co-religionists.”

The last place I’d want to be is inside Obama’s head. With that ego, there’d be no room. But Oren’s hypothesis explains a lot.

Happy Ramadan!

From Israel to Muslims:

The Israeli army has released an official Ramadan message to Muslim soldiers and citizens of the State of Israel, as well as to the wider Muslim world.

The video features the Israel Defense Forces’ Arabic-language spokesman Avichay Adraee, along with several Muslim-Israeli IDF officers about to break their Ramadan fast.

“Ramadan this year comes as the Arab world is immersed in the muck of terrorism and extremism… the life and safety of civilians is a game to these terrorist organizations,” Adraee says.

“These organizations use the name of Islam and its teachings. This year, we pray for the Almighty to make this month a month of blessing and peace for all the inhabitants of this region,” he added.

And from Muslims to Israel:

A border policeman has been left seriously wounded after being stabbed by an Arab terrorist in Jerusalem, close to the Old City’s Damascus Gate.

Security forces and paramedics are already at the scene.

The victim, aged 20, is in critical condition and fighting for his life, with stab wounds to his neck. Paramedics performed emergency first aid at the scene, and then transferred him to Jerusalem’s Shaare Tzedek hospital for further treatment.

Please, Islam, it’s really too much:

Lod’s Mayor Yair Revivo spoke to Arutz Sheva on Sunday about the loss of resident Danny Gonen, 25, who was murdered in Friday’s shooting attack in the Binyamin region.

“The city of Lod bows its head in response to the murder of one of its sons, Danny Gonen, in a terror attack at the hands of a vile terrorist murderer,” Revivo mourned.

“This heinous act of murder reminds us of the painful reality that atrocities are carried out against Jews, simply because they are Jews.”

To be fair, not just against Jews:

A suicide bomber rammed a car packed with explosives into the entrance of a Somali intelligence training center Sunday, a government official said.

And armed attackers traded heavy gunfire with security guards as they tried to enter the building, said Mohamed Yusuf, spokesman for the Somali Security Ministry.

The militant Islamist group Al Shabaab has claimed responsibility for the attack, Yusuf said.

Al Shabaab means “the youth”. How reassuring.

Ramadan comes from the root word meaning dryness, even “scorched”. Oy.

Mosque for the Praising of Allah

If they had stuck with the Allah-praising, we might not have a problem:

Several Boston-area terror suspects, including the man killed by police earlier this month as he allegedly sought to behead cops and two alleged associates, have frequently attended sermons given by firebrand imam whose message to the faithful doesn’t match the conciliatory tone he struck when contacted by FoxNews.com.

Imam Abdullah Faaruuq, of the Mosque for the Praising of Allah in Roxbury, Mass., has been seen on videos of his fiery sermons exhorting worshipers to commit acts of violence in the name of Islam. In videos of Faaruuq preaching, the former Northeastern University chaplain appears to skirt the line between metaphor and incitement.

“You must grab onto the rope, grab onto the typewriter, grab onto the shovel, grab onto the gun and the sword,” he railed in one video reviewed by FoxNews.com. “Don’t be afraid to step out into this world and do your job.”

Typewriter? Who has a typewriter anymore? Then again, who uses pressure cookers—and see what a weapon they made.

In addition to preaching at the Mosque for the Praising of Allah, Faaruuq gave sermons at the mosque that Boston Marathon bombers Tamerlan and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev attended.

When FoxNews.com reached out to Faaruuq to ask about his teachings, including the sermon in which he mentions taking up the “gun and the sword,” the imam said he was simply advising his followers to learn to protect themselves.

[O]ne active member of Boston’s Muslim community, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said Faaruuq’s words were not ambiguous.

“There are two types of people in Islam; radicals, and those that are peaceful,” the man said. “We never talk of killing, and never talk of taking out our ‘swords,’ even as a symbolic measure.”

The man said sermons like those given by Faaruuq are calibrated to stoke rage and promote radicalism.

“For a young mind, these statements carry weight,” he said. “That young mind now thinks it can change the world with the sword.”

So, according to this anonymous Muslim, there is no such thing as “symbolic” violence in Islam: a sword is a sword, and a gun is a gun. Remember that next time you hear an antisemitic sermon from a Palestinian pastor. They want blood.

And they get it:

Faaruuq told his congregation it must defend MIT graduate Aafia Saddiqui, known as “Lady Al Qaeda,” who is serving 86 years in prison for attempting to kill FBI agents in Afghanistan and planning a chemical attack on New York City. ISIS tried to trade American journalists Stephen Sotloff and James Foley for Saddiqui before beheading the men last year.

In the video, Faaruuq praises Saddiqui effusively.

“They say she took up a machine gun while they held her captive in the other room and was ready to attack her captors,” he said. “What a brave woman she is. And if my mother was in the same place, she would have taken her West Indian machete and cut her way through those kafirs (infidels).”

Her “symbolic” machete. To cut through those “symbolic” kafirs.

Happy 4th!!!

Of June! [Thanks to Yerushalimey]

The United States Embassy enjoyed its annual 4th of July celebration on Thursday, June 4, one month early, in order to respect the upcoming Ramadhan month, which will begin on June 17 and last for one month.

US Ambassador to Indonesia Robert O. Blake and US Ambassador to ASEAN Nina Hachigian presided over the festivities, which involved brass band renditions of the Star-Spangled Banner and the Indonesian national anthem, Indonesia Raya.

Blake explained that the theme of the event leaned toward “green” development, which supported the US’ focus on building and promoting a green economy and more environmentally sustainable development.

“The US will continue to support Indonesia in the future through its democratic achievements. Democracy is an American value which we have championed since [the country’s birth in] 1776,” Blake told the crowd during the festivities at his residence near Taman Suropati, Central Jakarta, on Thursday.

He added that moving the 4th of July celebrations to June 4 was one done out of respect for the upcoming Ramadhan month, which will last from June 17 to July 17.

Did they think of asking Islam to move Ramadan? Oh no, of course not. Perish the thought. We’ll just move the celebration of our Declaration of Independence, when the greatest men of the time pledged their Lives, their Fortunes, their “sacred Honor” to liberty and the end of tyranny.

Oh yes, and to “green” development. Button Gwinnett was a nut for green development. Pity no mention of it made it past the final edits.

PS: Where’d the “h” in Ramadhan comhe fromh? How would it possibly affect the spellihng?

PPS: You know how Obama will celebrate the holiday.

Out: ABBA, In: Yusuf Islam

I won’t bend your ear too long about Sweden, surefire eyeball closer, but this personal account I first saw mentioned at SteynOnline, is worth a look:

This is the last post on this blog. I am leaving Sweden for good shortly, and will no longer be following its descent from what was once the third most prosperous country in the world. Frankly, it’s just too damn depressing.

I was born and raised in Sweden, which leaves a cultural mark even though I moved to USA in the 1990s and have spent the better part of my adult life as an American. Coming back for a few years has been a shocking experience.

When I was a child, Sweden was a dull yet very safe place to live. Yes, there was a heavy blanket of socialism and collectivist values covering everything, but there was a core of pragmatism beneath the redness. The intention and goal was always to benefit the citizens, even though they went about things in a backwards manner.

Today, it’s as if the inmates are running the asylum. The politicians are participating in a chicken race of “goodness” where everybody tries to one-up each other in caring for the citizens of OTHER countries while Swedish retirees, school children, handicapped and other vulnerable categories of people are thorougly [sic] ignored. Violence is exploding. Jihadist Trojan horses are flowing through the porous border along with the tens of thousands ID-less refugees.

But what makes me the most pessimistic about Sweden’s future is how the social fabric itself has been undermined.

The once homogenous population has been forever altered by a rapid and massive addition of people from vastly different cultures and value-systems. 26,8% of the population is now foreign-born or with at least one foreign-born parent, and the national census bureau estimates that some 150 000 per year will arrive to the country of just 9,8 million residents.

There simply is no possible way to absorb and assimilate such volumes of people, period. Then you are merely creating ethnic enclaves, which due to incompatible language, culture and job skills become ghettos, which in turns brews crime, misery and extremism. Once the inflow has exceeded the capacity for absorbtion, further immigration only makes the problem worse.

The author takes pains to note that he thinks immigration is a good thing, just not so much of it that Sweden ceases to be Swedish and becomes quasi-Syrian. And for those liberals out there who have cited Sweden as a socialist success story, how hard is socialism in a population barely bigger than New York City, most of whom have a Protestant work ethic that would make your average on-call medical resident look like a slacker?

[W]hile ethnical Swedes have a 82% employment rate, immigrants only have 57% with non-Europeans coming in at just 51%.

Immigration used to be about making the foreign-born into citizens of their new land. Today, in such numbers, and with such strong religious and cultural identities, immigration is about the immigrants colonizing their new land with the behaviors and mores of the old country.

There is no more Sweden as we understand it. Syria with snowbanks is growing in its place. And Mark Steyn is laughing all the way to the bank as he cashes his royalty checks for America Alone and After America.

Happy Everybody Draw Mohammed Day! [UPDATED]

And I mean everybody:

Posted your caricature of Prophet Mohammad yet?? No?? Then do it now!! today’s the day to show solidarity with our fellow martyrs who died at the hands of Islamic fanatics for following the barbaric practice of FREE SPEECH. We salute the bravery of the following — Charlie Hebdo victims and Theo Van Gough whose throats were slit because we kept quite and let a gang of criminal and murderous Islamic fanatics kill them. Amen. This happened because they did not follow the blasphemous laws of Islam which are non-existent in Europe. By drawing pictures of Mohammed en mass, today we show our solidarity with these victims and we shout out loud towards Islamic fanatics who openly profess killing of cartoonists and those muslims who implicitly agree with the fanatics, that WE WILL NOT BEND TO YOUR THUGGERY. We will not give up on our fundamental right to Free Speech, no matter what!!

Even if it means giving up on our fundamental right to breathe and not have our throats slit.

I draw so poorly that even my snowmen are stick figures. If I drew a picture of Mohammed, no Muslim would be offended because it would look like a game of Hangman (something they love). But here’s something of how it would look:

Minus the smile.

But as offensive as that image may be, here’s one infinitely more offensive:

Untitled

The victims of Muslim slaughter in the offices of Charlie Hebdo. Dead for drawing cartoons. That’s no end of effed-up.

UPDATE:
More on the festivities from Random Nerds.

But-Boy Award™

Just as puny little Norway punches above its weight (as Obama used to love to say) with its Nobels, Bloodthirstan has learned that the way to achieving any kind of significance in the world is to dole out meaningless awards to shallow nincompoops who earn them with inane and illogical utterances. Hence the Ya Think? Award™, the Chutzpie™…

And now the But Boy Award™, for those who condemn terrorism, antisemitism, censorship, etc. ad nauseam, but

JUAN WILLIAMS: I love free speech, but what I see is Pam Geller’s behavior is causing people to lose their focus on free speech as the essential right of American life — instead they are focusing on her antics. Because she engaged in gratuitous offensive behavior that led to the deaths of two people. The shooting of a security guard for no reason. This woman was not about writing a book like Salman Rushdie, Charlie Hebdo engaging in satire. She did this as a provocative act intended to offend people.

Oh dear. That’s going to be tough to beat, inane, illogical shallow nincompoops. But I know you can do it. Get busy.

PS: It seems lost on Juan Williams, as so much else is, that those he seems to defend as “engaging in satire”, also died, or were targeted for death. Their Muslim killers didn’t seem to appreciate the distinction between satire and provocation as much as he does.

PS: That Geller “led to the deaths of two people” is laughable enough, but “the shooting of a security guard for no reason”? Ask the two dead people, if you could, and they’d give you an earful of reasons.

We Disagree

No Islamophiles we, our critiques of Islam both radical and mainstream are clear and specific.

But even we wouldn’t go this far:

Sadhvi Deva Thakur is a leader of All India Hindu Mahasabha, a leading Hindu organization in India. On April 11, 2015, she demanded that Muslims and Christians in India be forcibly sterilized, as they were during Emergency Rule in 1975, when such forced sterilizations were carried out. The following are excerpts from a media report:[1]

“‘The population of Muslims and Christians is growing day by day. To rein in this, Center [the federal Indian government] will have to impose emergency [rule], and Muslims and Christians will have to be forced to undergo sterilization so that they can’t increase their numbers,’ vice president of All India Hindu Mahasabha, Sadhvi Deva Thakur told reporters…

“She also exhorted Hindus to have more children and increase their population so as to have an effect on the world. In another controversial remark, she said that idols of Hindu gods and goddesses should be placed in mosques and churches. Thakur also came out strongly in support of installing a statue of ‘patriot’ Nathuram Godse [the assassin of Mahatma Gandhi] in Haryana [state near Delhi ruled by the pro-Hindu Bharatiya Janata Party of Prime Minister Narendra Modi].”

Under Muslim (Mughal) rule, Hindu temples were razed and mosques built on their foundations. Sticking a few Ganesh idols in the mosques seems like a mild retort.

But it gets worse:

“Today, in Pakistan, in temples, dharamshalas and mutts [Hindu religious places], sheep and goats are kept. [In Indian mosques], swine nurseries will be opened. When this nation becomes a Hindu Rashtra, the Muslim will be turned into a second class citizen. And when the Muslim will become the second class citizen, then his voting right will be snatched away. And when the voting right will be snatched away from the Muslim, then no leader of any political party who misleads the Hindu community by wearing the garb of secularism will be able to mislead Hindus.”

Much worse:

“Today there is a need to dig up the [bodies of the Muslims’ deceased] mothers, sisters and daughters from graves, and to rape them…”

We call out Muslims for their antisemitism and their terrorism. We call them out for “honor” killings and child abuse. But we have never called for their mothers, sisters, and daughters to be…well, you know.

We also draw the line at this:

“He gave the Muslim occupant 48 hours to vacate the house. ‘If he does not relent, go with stones, tires [used to set fires], and tomatoes to his office. There is nothing wrong in it. [The] killers of [former Indian Prime Minister] Rajiv Gandhi have not been hanged… There is nothing to fear and the case will go on,’ Togadia told the charged-up gathering. ‘I have done it in the past, and Muslims have lost both property and money,’ he said.

“When you go out in streets, plan to spit [on Muslims]; don’t you go out? One cannot be punished for spitting on someone. One cannot be punished if you throw tomato on someone. Whenever they come out of homes, 10-15 youth attack them with tomatoes. [Sounds of laughter from the audience]. By fighting on these two fronts [legal and practical intimidation], force them to accept that the occupation of the houses is with us, or to vacate and lose money….”

There will be blood. And worse, with both India and Pakistan owners of nuclear weapons.

Poll: Settlements Are the Only Obstacle to Peace

Ha-ha! Made you look!

Two polls that received very little fanfare were released late last month, and found that the majority of Christian and Jewish Canadians think Islam is “irreconcilable” with the West – it also found 42% of Canadian Muslims agree with that assessment.

The polls, conducted by Leger Marketing, were published in the Vancouver Sun and found 63% of Protestants, 62% of Jews and 60% of Catholics felt Islam cannot coexist with Western culture.

That assessment was shared by 46% of non-religious Canadians, and in a large admission, by 42% of Muslims who felt their religion cannot be reconciled with the country they live in.

You may want to focus on the 60 percenters—haters, all of them—but I would instead direct your attention to the 40 percent who actually live in the society they have no intention of actually living in. If you see what I mean. Three out of five of us may be bigots—but two out of five of Muslims justify our bigotry. And they live here.

All I ask of the 42% is to get the hell out and leave us the hell alone. The bigots can stay.

Dispatches From the Front Lines in the War on Women

We’ll return to the Rand Paul panzer brigade shortly.

But in other war news:

It is an unimaginably hideous outcome.

To be raped by your cousin’s husband; be jailed for adultery as your attacker was married; to suffer the ignominy of global uproar about your jailing and assault, but be pardoned by presidential decree; and then to endure the shame and rejection from a conservative society that somehow held you to blame.

The solution in this society? Marry your attacker.

That’s what happened to Gulnaz, who was barely 16 when she was raped. She’s now carrying the third child of her attacker, Asadullah, who was convicted and jailed — though this was then reduced.

Gulnaz’s plight — like so much in beleaguered Afghanistan — disappeared from the world’s gaze once she was pardoned and released courtesy of a presidential pardon. Instead of a new start, what followed for Gulnaz was a quiet, Afghan solution to the “problem”…

You would rather this happen?

A man killed his uncle, aunt and their eight children after the uncle refused to let him marry his daughter, Pakistani police said.

Gul Ahmed Said is accused of shooting and killing the family of 10 in the Charsadda district of northern Pakistan on Sunday, district police Officer Shafiullah Khan said.

The quarrel stemmed from an argument over the amount of gold that would be offered for the daughter’s marriage, Khan said.

The daughter, whom the suspect wanted to marry, was also a cousin of the suspect.

I have an idea why these people behave like inbred chimps. Because they are!

And leave it to CNN to figure out that the daughter of one’s uncle is one’s cousin. Who knew?

Of course, some people probably shouldn’t have children:
