Foley Murdered By Brit With London Accent

Because British culture produces the best butchers.

British Foreign Minister Philip Hammond says that the government is “urgently investigating” the identity of the apparently British executioner of US reporter James Foley, whose death was shown in a video released by members of the self-declared Islamic State in Syria. The IS member’s apparent ties to Britain highlight increasing concern in the West about the radicalization of European and American nationals by jihadi groups and the threat they pose if they return home.

The video published overnight on YouTube shows the hooded, black-clad IS member speaking extensively in both English and Arabic before killing an orange-jumpsuited man described as “James Wright Foley, an American citizen.” In what the Daily Telegraph describes as a London accent, the executioner says that the US has “been at the forefront of the aggression towards the Islamic State,” before killing Foley.

But at least David Cameron takes this seriously:

Over there: “U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron cut short his summer vacation to return to London and chair urgent meetings on the threat posed by ISIS in Iraq and Syria, calling the video ‘shocking and depraved.’”

Over here:

President Obama went back to his vacation on Martha’s Vineyard Tuesday evening following less than 48 hours in Washington, leaving people puzzled over why he came back in the first place.

Obama’s two days in Washington were mostly quiet, and concluded with the president receiving his daily national security briefing in the morning, and joining Vice President Biden to huddle with members of his economic team in the afternoon.

Administration officials have insisted for weeks that the president just wanted to return to the White House for a series of meetings, but the explanation was met with a healthy dose of skepticism, since Obama rarely interrupts his vacations.

Oh, Obama did make a statement about the beheading, before heading off to play a round of golf:

President Barack Obama said Wednesday that the entire world is “appalled” by the brutal death of American journalist James Foley, who was shown in a video released by the Islamic State of Syria and Iraq being beheaded.
“No faith teaches people to massacre innocents,” Obama said in his statement. “No just God would stand for what they did yesterday and what they do every single day.”

“People like this ultimately fail because the future is won by those who build and not destroy,” Obama said.
Obama also called Foley’s parents to offer his condolences and told them that a nation was heartbroken for their loss.
According to a pool report obtained by Politico, Obama went to the Vineyard Golf Club following his statement.

Oy. Peaceful Palestinians At It Again.

The Religion of Pieces™ had plans for massive terror attacks in Israel, with the intent to overthrow the PA and start a shiny new terror war.

A large-scale Hamas terrorist formation in the West Bank and Jerusalem planned to destabilize the region through a series of deadly terrorist attacks in Israel and then topple the Fatah-ruled Palestinian Authority, the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) said Monday.

The plot was orchestrated by overseas Hamas operatives headquartered in Turkey and centered on a string of mass-casualty terrorist attacks on Israeli targets, the Shin Bet added.

The end goal was to destabilize the Palestinian territories and use the instability to carry out a military coup, overthrowing the government of PA President Mahmoud Abbas.

The Hamas infrastructure relied on support from cells in neighboring Jordan and on couriers who delivered funding that totaled at least NIS 2 million.

This was used to purchase weapons and homes that were used as hideouts, according to the investigation.

There are 93 Hamas members in Israeli custody, of whom 46 have been questioned by the Shin Bet so far. Security forces plan to indict some 70 suspects.

The investigation began in May and is ongoing, security sources said.

Read it all; it’s fascinating. Again, how does anyone deal with these people? All they seem to want to do is to murder. Normal people can’t wrap their heads around it. And Yours Truly can believe that Abbas is terrified of these monsters, but that doesn’t make him the Dali Lama either. He just heads up a different division of creeps.

Is This Legal?

If you scroll down, you’ll come to a video from Ferguson, Missouri last night in which the New Black Panthers are leading this chant:

What’s his name?

Darren Willson.

How do we want him?

Dead.

Now I will not post the video itself, because if you go to youtube to watch it, it plays automatically, and I don’t want our site opening with sound. If you go to the link, you will hear it and see it, but you will decide when.

So, assuming you’ve done that, here’s my question: Is this legal? Can any group stand out and public and chant that they want a private citizen dead? Or a police officer or a politician, for that matter? How is this ok? If it is ok, does that mean that a white skin head group can call for the death of Al Sharpton or, even better, a black police officer somewhere? Or the teenager behind the cash register at the local ice cream parlor? Where does it stop?

This can’t be legal…

Heard On The BBC

Today on the BBC they did a heartfelt piece about the anguish of the average Gazan. It dripped with empathy, British-style, meaning they were warm and caring toward the Gazans and at the same time hostile and snotty toward Israel.

I thought about this: “Aggie, (I thought), how can you help the British media, and the British public, to feel empathy for the suffering of the Israelis? How to make them understand that in a nation of roughly 7 million people, 14,000 missiles have been launched from Gaza in total, and about 3,500 of them happened within the past couple of months? How can such loving people not feel for the poor Israelis, and how can I help?”

Well, I thought and I thought and I think I have the solution. It is pretty simple. You see, there are about 7.5 million Israelis, but 63,742,000 citizens of the UK. I want to divide the UK into Israel-sized populations. Hmmm. I have to divide 63,742,000 by 7.5 million. It comes up to 8.493333333333. Let’s agree on 8.5, ok? So that means that there are 8.5 regions of the UK, somehow divided into 7.5 million human beings each (except for the .5 which has only 3.75 million, give or take). Got it? Now draw the borders any which way, as long as each region has only 7.5 million people.

And start shelling them. Randomly and persistently, begin to fire missiles into the UK. Some will land in fields, some will shatter the stained glass in those beautiful cathedrals, some will hit cafes, and some will land in nursery schools or senior living facilities. This needs to go on for 9 years and it needs to be random. Perhaps someone can write a computer program to create the randomness of the targets? And naturally, the missiles themselves must be faulty enough that even if something is aimed at a park, it could as easily land in the 3rd floor living room of a nice apartment.

Talk doesn’t matter. Whoever runs the program can talk and talk and talk, as long as the shelling continues. It’s best if they promise to stop if demands are met, etc., but the shelling must continue. Oh, and it would be lovely if the population of Britain was blamed for their own misery and most especially if the UN passed dozens, oddles!, of resolutions blaming them.

In 9 years, we can see how the BBC responds. Our readers who either live in the UK or are familiar with it can write and let us know if this would work.

Best,

Meanwhile, Our Brave And Brilliant President Refuses Help To Families Trapped On A Mountain

You thought we were helping those poor people, didn’t you? Mission Accomplished!

The United States military has concluded that there are too few Yazidi refugees still trapped in the mountains of northern Iraq to warrant mounting a potentially risky rescue, the Pentagon said late Wednesday.

Military advisers who earlier in the day visited the Sinjar mountains, where as many as 30,000 people were thought to still be trapped, said that they found “far fewer” Yazidis than expected and that those who were there were in better condition than anticipated. Food and water dropped in recent days have reached those who remain, the Pentagon statement said.

The Pentagon said the visit proved that the actions the United States had taken in recent days had succeeded in preventing the Islamic State from capturing and executing the Yazidis, members of a religious sect that Sunni extremists view as heretics. It said the assessment team encountered no hostile forces during its visit and “did not engage in combat operations.”

Brett McGurk, the State Department’s deputy assistant secretary for Near East Affairs, said the assessment team had spent 24 hours in the mountains. He declared via Twitter that the U.S. actions had “broken the siege,” a sentiment repeated by State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf: “President said we’re going to break the siege of this mountain, and we broke that siege.”

Well, aren’t we special? We broke the siege. Phew. The people who are still on that mountain are just fine, don’t you worry your pretty little head.

And what exactly was happening on that mountain anyway? There are reports that children are so thirsty, their parents are cutting their own hands so that their kids can drink the blood of the parents. Sounds sort of religious, doesn’t it? Only as I understand it, ordinary parents are not supposed to be offering their blood up to their children.

So I don’t know, and I don’t suppose that any of us really do. If it is ok for more than 170,000 civilians to die in Syria, why are we obsessing about this group on the mountain? On the other hand, how can we be so cruel as to ignore this? What is the matter with us?

Here’s the real question: If we’d had competent leadership in the White House, would we be talking about any of this?

The British Commonwealth Has A Problem

A couple thousand problems.

This first bit is about Australia, but the numbers coming out of Britain are very concerning.

A seven-year-old jihadi has been pictured with the severed head of Syrian soldier in a photo posted online by his proud father. The boy is the son of the wanted Australian terrorist Khaled Sharrouf, according to the Metro.
The boy was pictured holding the head in the northern Syrian city of Raqqa. His father tweeted the photo along with the caption “That’s my boy!”. He also posed with the head himself under the caption “what a head.”
Khaled Sharrouf is a former drug addict who is one of the most wanted Australians. He travelled to Syria to join the jihad and now regularly sends updates of his actions to Twitter. He is believed to have made it out of Australia in December by using his brother’s passport.


The former Sydney resident also claimed there would be “Inshaallah soon in Aus” – which means “God willing or if Allah wills”, a sign he wishes to bring jihad to Australia.

This child is not the only one to have been dragged to a warzone by his parents. As previously reported on Breitbart London a British-four-year old was pictured posing with a gun in Syria.
His parents travelled from Britain to fight for ISIS, they are amongst the estimated 1500 UK nationals who are now fighting jihad.
This has led to serious concerns that when the war with ISIS is over large numbers of well trained terrorists will return to countries like Britain and Australia.

Huh. Sucks to be you, Britain.

Hamas Executes Tunnel Builders

In order to protect the secrecy of the locations

The tunnelers, many of whom constructed the tunnels over the course of months, would dig for 8-12 hours a day, and received a monthly wage of $150-$300, according to the blog.

Sources in Gaza told the website that Hamas took a series of precautions to prevent information from reaching Israel. The terror organization would reportedly blindfold the excavators en route to the sites and back, to prevent them from recognizing the locations. The tunnels were strictly supervised by Hamas members, and civilians were kept far from the sites.

M., a former tunnel digger and Israeli collaborator, told the website that Hamas would strip search the workers to ensure they had no recording devices or cameras hidden on them.

“The people we met had their faces covered; no one knew them by their real names, it was all codes and first names. They didn’t want to take the risk that some of the diggers were collaborating with Israel,” he said.

After the tunnels were completed, dozens were reportedly executed to prevent intelligence leaks to Israel.

“Anyone they suspected might transfer information to Israel on the tunnels was killed by the military wing,” a different source said. “They were very cruel.”

In 2012, a Journal of Palestine Studies article claimed 160 Palestinian children were killed while working on Hamas’s tunnel system.

The digging of tunnels began four years ago and has demanded 40 percent of Hamas’s budget, The Times of Israel has learned.

Tunnel diggers have been using electric or pneumatic jackhammers, advancing 4-5 meters a day. The tunnels found were reportedly mostly dug 18-25 meters (60-82 feet) underground, though one was discovered at a depth of 35 meters (115 feet). “That’s like a 10-story building underground,” one expert said.

So, let’s see: They executed both adults and children who were hired (forced?) to build the terror tunnels. They used 40% of the aid provided by the west to carry this out. And the Left thinks that Israel is somehow the bad guy?

Romney Got It Right – All Of It.

Iraq, Russia, the economy, health care…

Almost every day, it seems, brings a headline demonstrating how right 2012 Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney was, and how wrong President Barack Obama was, on the critical issues facing America.

In 2012, Romney warned that Obama’s failure to secure an agreement to keep a residual military force in Iraq would threaten the U.S. gains made at such a high cost in American lives and treasure. “America’s ability to influence events for the better in Iraq has been undermined by the abrupt withdrawal of our entire troop presence,” Romney asserted.

The chaos in Iraq today supports Romney’s view. With no U.S. military presence to constrain Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki, the Shiite politician persecuted Sunni leaders and gutted Sunni participation in government and the military. Worse, it set the stage for Sunni sympathies to turn to the fanatical Islamic State in Syria and Iraq that has conquered a significant part of the country and waged genocide against religious minorities. Obama has had to order U.S. air strikes to protect U.S. personnel in the Kurdish region and to support Kurdish militia to keep ISIS from capturing all of northern Iraq.

In the 2012 debates, Obama mocked Romney for calling Russia America’s top geopolitical foe. Today, Russia has stolen Crimea from Ukraine, funds and provides weapons and men to Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine and even threatens an invasion of the country. President Vladimir Putin meddles in the Mideast, seeks to expand Moscow’s clout in Latin America, and harbors renegade Edward Snowden.

On domestic issues, Romney in 2011 advanced the idea of giving veterans a voucher to obtain medical care they could not get at a Veterans Administration hospital. This year saw the VA scandal reveal that long waiting lists for hospital treatment were hidden. Legislation Obama signed this week allows vets to seek help outside the VA system.

Romney understood that the nation’s outdated, complex tax code encourages U.S. corporations to park assets overseas and invest in other countries. He recommended tax reform to keep that money and business in America and boost the economy. Obama does nothing about reform but demagogues as “unpatriotic” corporations pressured by the tax code to seek profits and better returns for shareholders overseas.

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?

Australian Teens Threaten To Slit Throats Of Jewish Children

What a nice culture.

CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Dozens of Jewish children have been traumatized by a gang of teenagers who stormed a Sydney school bus and allegedly hurled racial abuse and threats.

New South Wales state police said five juveniles were arrested early Thursday over the incident on Wednesday afternoon. They were questioned at a police station but were later released without charge into the custody of their parents pending further investigations, a police statement said.

The bus carrying about 30 children aged 5 to 12 years from three Jewish schools were subjected to “physical and racial threats” by a group of eight male teenagers, aged 15 to 17, who boarded at a bus stop in the wealthy eastern suburb of Randwick, police said. No one was injured.

Jackie Blackburn said her three daughters, aged 8, 10 and 12, would need counseling after their terrifying bus ride.

She told Nine Network television on Thursday that her eldest daughter had phoned her from the bus pleading for help, saying: “There are eight very dangerous, drunk men on this bus.”

The daughter’s phone went dead, but Blackburn said she was soon phoned by her daughter’s friend from the same bus.

“They’re threatening to slit our throats; they’re chanting ‘Palestine’ and they’re going crazy about Palestine — ‘must kill the Jews’ and ‘heil Hitler,’” Blackburn said.

“It was just very anti-Semitic and very scary for all the kids,” she added. “My little daughter said she’s just really scared of everything now,” she added.

Isabelle Stanton, whose two daughters, aged 8 and 12, were on the same bus, told The Daily Telegraph newspaper the youths had screamed: “We are going to murder you,” and “Free Palestine.”

“The kids are aware of what is going on in the Middle East, but the conflict in the Middle East should not be imported here — we are now feeling very vulnerable,” Stanton said.

And you thought that Australia was just about kangaroos, copper mining, and racism against the Aboriginal population!

Indian And French News Crews Broadcast Rocket Launcher Near Hotels, UN Buildings

Watch the videos here

I am not linking to the youtube site because it turns on automatically, meaning that if I post those videos, BTL will open with noise. Not good. However, the content of both videos is well-worth a couple minutes of your time. The Indian crew sort of hid in their hotel room and filmed the building of the launch pad and the surrounding area. The French crew filmed the rocket practically whizzing by the reporter’s ear, as well as children playing with the parts and a large UN building nearby.

Why didn’t they show us this when it mattered? My guess is that Hamas would have killed the reporters. I’ll bet a nickel that they are safe at home now, and so they feel comfortable showing us this stuff. So the question is this: Will the NY Times, the Washington Post, the LA Times, CNN, MSNBC (hah!) and the rest of the MSM bother to report any of this? Will they show this footage?

PS – I know that many of you find Fox News tiresome, (it is in many ways), but Sean Hannity has be doing live reports from bomb shelters, tunnels, an underground playground, a kibbutz that was shelled during the previous “ceasefire”, etc. He’s interviewed a lot of interesting people. I don’t know if those reports are available on youtube or not, but they are interesting.
