Modern Day Trojan Horse: The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration


From the American Thinker:


Within the past few decades, mosques have increasingly dotted the landscapes of American and European cities and towns, with mega mosques often overshadowing adjacent, centuries-old churches in predominantly Christian regions.  Islamic schools or academies and a host of Muslim organizations have become omnipresent across the West.  

Meanwhile, Americans and Europeans have made countless accommodations to Muslim demands. They have included footbaths; high-decibel, five-times-daily calls to prayer; segregated male-female gym and swimming pool hours; halal food; workplace dispensations for handling pork products and for female head and face coverings; and special, public prayer rooms. Also, shari'ah-compliant financial transactions, the expunging of offensive likenesses of Mohammed or imagined depictions of Arabic characters that connote "Allah," official swearings-in on Korans in place of customary Bibles, the neutralizing of official descriptive language about Islamists and the jihad, the revision of so-called offensive content in movies and television programs, the removal of representations of pigs from the public sphere, and many other acculturations to Muslim entreaties have all been made in the service of respecting Muslim religious beliefs and practices. 

To those in Western democracies, these accommodating actions appear, on the surface, to be little more than harmless civil gestures, respecting the needs of a growing religion in their midst and welcoming a new addition to their proud, multicultural tradition.  Many Westerners pat themselves on the back for their liberal bent, their tolerance and their open-mindedness. 

Little do they realize that this strategic pattern of demands is part of an insidious, 1,400-year-old proscription for Muslims that originates in the Koran and the Sunnah, the deeds of Mohammed.  It is the Hijra or doctrine of immigration. Modeled by Mohammed's migration from Mecca to Medina, this immigration is not to a romanticized melting pot wherein newcomers gratefully search for opportunities for a better life in liberty and freely offer their talents and loyalty to benefit their new homeland.  This is immigration for Islamic expansionism employing ethnic separatism to gain special status and privileges within the host country.  Hijra is immigration designed to subvert and subdue non-Muslim societies and pave the way for eventual, total Islamization.

In their compelling book, "Modern Day Trojan Horse:  The Islamic Doctrine of Immigration," authors Sam Solomon, a former professor of shari'ah law and convert to Christianity, and Elias Al Maqdisi, an expert on Islamic teachings, explain the migration of Muslims to the Dar-al-Harb, the "land of war," as a religious edict with a basis in Islamic doctrine.  They delineate the step-by-step process of this 1,400-year-old strategy of conquest. It is a transitional strategy which they characterize as the most important step in spreading Islam and preparing for jihad.  From their carefully delineated treatise on Hijra, it is clear that migration in concert with military conquest comprise the bookends of Islamic expansionism. 

Solomon and Al Maqdisi review the phases of the Hijra and its juristic or legal basis in Islamic doctrine.  Under the cover of taquiya or deception, the step-by-step methodology of the migration process is designed to subdue, then, subjugate the host culture, culminating in implementation of shari'ah law. 

The beginning phase of Islamization usually includes activities pivotal to building a physical presence. It consists of public calls to prayer; founding of schools, libraries and research centers; and the teaching of Arabic -- actions that appear to be reasonable and respectable infrastructure requirements necessary to support the presence of a faith.  At this point in the Hijra, it is permissible for Muslims to engage in haram, or forbidden actions, out of necessity to establish and empower the umma or Muslim community.  Koranic rules such as the prohibition against friendships with infidels are suspended while the objectives of future Islamization are systematically put into place. In its initial phase, the Hijra passes scrutiny by the West whose citizens erroneously view the migration as mainly economic -- a pilgrimage for a better life.

Solomon and Maqdisi examine the comprehensive strategy that begins with the establishment of the umma or Muslim community. The mosque becomes the locus of power, a strategic base and the center of all activities.  They explain how in this embryonic phase, a top priority is the scouting for new arrivals to expand and empower the existing Muslim community.  Muslim leaders offer solicitous assistance and helpful suggestions for schools, housing, mosque worship, halal markets and other services to ingratiate themselves with new arrivals and bring them into the local Muslim community.  Agents of local mosques, ever alert for new immigrants and potential converts, engage in subtle forms of indoctrination and police local Muslims.

This first step of establishing the mosque as the center of local Islamic life and activities is mistakenly viewed by non-Muslims as merely the benign construction of houses of worship.  Its true goal escapes notice, that of firmly establishing a purposeful non-integrated Muslim identity to advance the goal of Islamization.

Once the consolidation of the Muslim community occurs under the radar, the purposeful fight for special status and shari'ah follows. As dictated by the Koran and Sunnah, segregation from non-Muslims is a natural outcome of the advancement of the Hijra. 

Visible changes begin to be apparent as the Muslim population achieves more of a critical mass.  Over time, the dress code, often beginning with a hijab in segregated enclaves and moving toward the complete covering of a neqab in the public sphere, separates Muslim women from men and from non-Muslim women.  Eventually, as the host population becomes familiarized with what they believe to be the requirements of religious piety, demands are made for segregation at public facilities, in the workplace and at schools and universities. Requests for halal food, shari'ah-compliant financial transactions and the addition of Muslim holidays to public calendars further elevate the Muslim community with a special status making them separate and distinct. 

All demands are initially presented as benign attempts to accommodate the religious requirements of devout Muslims. Any actions to suppress them are decried as religious discrimination.  In the United States, requests for separate swimming and gym hours for Muslim men and women, demands for identification photos for licenses for women wearing hijabs and refusals to handle pork products or don immodest dress in the workplace have appeared.  At this point, representatives of the Muslim community are often working cooperatively with the host government to bring about change.  As Solomon and Maqdisi explain, the idea is to get the host society accustomed to Muslim buildings, customs, holidays, dress and food.  Newcomers are encouraged by Muslim leadership to become citizens, vote and run for political office to increase the umma's influence.

At the university level, students are indoctrinated to become advocates for Islam, engage in interfaith activities and da'wa or proselytization and train for jihad.  Non-Muslims professors are solicited through zakat or payments to present courses favorable to Islam and write and speak publicly to promote Islam. The bequeathal by Saudi Prince Al-waleed bin Talal of $20 million dollars for Islamic study centers at Harvard and Georgetown universities, respectively, was a gesture to insure the promulgation of positive research, publications and presentations toward Islam.  

In "Modern Day Trojan Horse," Solomon and Maqdisi point out that as Muslims gain power and mass in the host country, consolidation of identity occurs, as well as strengthening of their infrastructure of mosques, schools, clubs, organizations and media.  The doctrine of taquiya is firmly in place as Muslims hide behind the dictates of their religious devotion and seek cultural changes in the land of the non-Muslim or kuffar.  At this more advanced stage, attempts are made to silence opponents and curry favor. The judicious use of zakat elicits favorable views of Muslims and Islam from politicians, representatives from the media and other organizations.  For example, within the last couple of years in the United States, the words, "jihad" and "Islamofascism," have been expunged from the lexicon of government officials and the words, "Islamic" and "terrorism," are rarely paired.  In Europe, which is further advanced in this process, a dangerous turn materialized with the murder of filmmaker ,Theo Van Gogh, who produced a film on the subjugation of women in Islam, and with death threats against Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilder for his outspoken criticism of Islam.

As Islamization of the host culture proceeds apace, preparations begin for learning the skills necessary for jihad.  Young jihadists may travel to their countries of origin for further indoctrination and terrorist training.  This development has been noted within Somali Muslim communities in Minnesota and Tennessee. Young Muslims have disappeared to Somalia to rendezvous with Al Shabaab, a terrorist group linked to Al Qaeda.



As the resident Muslim community becomes more established and begins to wield considerable power in the political arena, pressure is brought to bear on politicians to permit shari'ah law courts in exchange for Muslim votes.  This is very much evident in Britain where parallel systems of legal jurisprudence currently coexist.  Muslim inhabitants of the host country are pressured to follow shari'ah law in lieu of the prevailing legal system.  Several recent legal decisions by non-Muslim judges in Europe have referenced shari'ah law as a standard for verdicts concerning Muslims.

As the intensity of the hijra advances, the appearance of open ghettos or Muslim-only regions occurs.  These are areas where non-Muslims are essentially prohibited and where, if they enter, they actually may be physically threatened.  Such no-go zones, where even non-Muslim community workers are unwelcome, exist throughout Europe today.  Remarkably, Muslim movements are never restricted; they venture freely anywhere in the host country. 

As Solomon and Maqdisi point out, the Hijra is a comprehensive and direct political attempt to undermine the culture and values of the host country and replace them with Islam and shari'ah.  It is an insidious migration seeking transformation of the culture, behaviors, customs, rules and laws of a host society to spread Islam and establish an Islamic state.  The stages of the Hijra are very much evident in varying degrees in all Western societies today.  Ironically, our open democratic societies with constitutionally mandated freedoms of speech, religion and assembly have facilitated this march toward the very demise of our way of life. 

"Modern Day Trojan Horse" should be required reading for all citizens of Western democracies who urgently need to understand the Hijra and the threat it represents.  The book sounds the alarm for the cautious evaluation of what may appear to be innocent religious practice in our midst but has sinister motives to transform our societies forever.

Geert Wilders Being Charged With "Race Hate"



From the Telegraph:
Geert Wilders has been charged with incitement to discrimination and hatred after the Dutch far-Right leader led chants of "fewer Moroccans” at an election rally. 
It is not the first time the leader of the Freedom Party, famous for his peroxide blond mane of hair and currently leading in the opinion polls, has found himself in the dock on charges for his comments on Islam and immigration. 
“I have said what millions of people think and find. For the second time, one apparently wants to deal with someone who speaks the truth,” said Mr Wilders. 
“It is a travesty that I have to defend myself in court for this. The public prosecutor would do better to devote his time to prosecuting jihadis instead of me. The Party for Freedom is the largest party in the polls. Apparently the elite does not like that.” 
The latest case follows a public rally last March when Mr Wilders asked a mass audience of his supporters whether they wanted "fewer or more Moroccans in your city and in the Netherlands?”. 
When the crowd shouted "fewer! fewer!”, or “minder! minder! in Dutch, a grinning Mr Wilders shouted: "We're going to organise that”. 
During European elections in May, the anti-immigration Freedom Party campaigned under the slogan “minder”. 
This led to 6,400 legal complaints being lodged with the Dutch authorities and the furore led to senior members of the Mr Wilders’ own party resigning. 
"The public prosecutor is to prosecute Geert Wilders on charges of insulting a group of people based on race and incitement to discrimination and hatred," said a statement from the prosecutor’s office. 
"Politicians may go far in their statements, that's part of freedom of expression, but this freedom is limited by the prohibition of discrimination.”

North Korea Proposes Joint Investigation Into Sony Hack, Warns Of “Serious Consequences” If We Refuse

What Am I Supposed To Do Next?

Maybe if Obama apologizes to them, they will leave us alone.

From the New York Daily News:
North Korea on Saturday proposed a joint investigation with the U.S. into the hacking attack against Sony Pictures Entertainment, warning of “serious” consequences if Washington rejects a probe that it believes will prove Pyongyang had nothing to do with the cyberattack. 
U.S. officials blame North Korea for the hacking, citing the tools used in the Sony attack and previous hacks linked to the North, and have vowed a response. 
The break-in resulted in the disclosure of tens of thousands of confidential Sony emails and business files, and escalated to terrorist threats that caused Sony to cancel the Christmas release of the movie “The Interview.” 
The comedy is about a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. On Saturday, an unidentified Foreign Ministry spokesman in Pyongyang said North Korea knows how to prove it’s not responsible for the hacking, so the United States must accept its proposal for the joint investigation.

Shhh...

Ok, a quick confession.

Every year if you meet me in person this time of year I am playing the part of Scrooge. Bah humbugging everyone I meet and generally taking up the personality of one of my favorite literary characters 24/7 until Christmas day. It has gotten to the point that those who know me will humbug me before wishing me a Merry Christmas.

Meanwhile at home I am writing letters from St. Nick to all my nieces and nephews.

And these are long affairs. two to three pages of personalization and then another four or five of news from the Pole involving Polar bears and penguins (oh yes, they got lost you see, and stayed on) elves A Wandering Troup of Mad Russian Minstrels and so on.

(This year I was particularly hard on that lazy Elf on a Shelf who just sits there, never does any useful work, never reports back to me and then sneaks your ring bologna cheese Cheerios and Cocoa when you go to bed).

Every Christmas these letters take 30-40 hours to turn out. And that's using a computer to write instead of longhand. The wife thinks I'm nutz.

But I have it on very good authority that the kids actually start watching their mail for these every year right after Thanksgiving, so we continue.

Thus when I saw this story I knew it was a kindred Christmas spirit.

Merry Christmas!

No Wait, tis only the 19th...

Bah. Humbug.

NPR (yeah, I know, sorry):

NORAD's Santa Tracker Began With A Typo And A Good Sport

This Christmas Eve people all over the world will log on to the official Santa Tracker to follow his progress through U.S. military radar. This all started in 1955, with a misprint in a Colorado Springs newspaper and a call to Col. Harry Shoup's secret hotline at the Continental Air Defense Command, now known as NORAD.
Shoup's children, Terri Van Keuren, 65, Rick Shoup, 59, and Pam Farrell, 70, recently visited StoryCorps to talk about how the tradition began.
The Santa Tracker tradition started with this Sears ad, which instructed children to call Santa on what turned out to be a secret military hotline. Kids today can call 1-877 HI-NORAD (1-877-446-6723) to talk to NORAD staff about Santa's exact location.

Terri remembers her dad had two phones on his desk, including a red one. "Only a four-star general at the Pentagon and my dad had the number," she says.
"This was the '50s, this was the Cold War, and he would have been the first one to know if there was an attack on the United States," Rick says.
The red phone rang one day in December 1955, and Shoup answered it, Pam says. "And then there was a small voice that just asked, 'Is this Santa Claus?' "
His children remember Shoup as straight-laced and disciplined, and he was annoyed and upset by the call and thought it was a joke — but then, Terri says, the little voice started crying.
"And Dad realized that it wasn't a joke," her sister says. "So he talked to him, ho-ho-ho'd and asked if he had been a good boy and, 'May I talk to your mother?' And the mother got on and said, 'You haven't seen the paper yet? There's a phone number to call Santa. It's in the Sears ad.' Dad looked it up, and there it was, his red phone number. And they had children calling one after another, so he put a couple of airmen on the phones to act like Santa Claus."
"It got to be a big joke at the command center. You know, 'The old man's really flipped his lid this time. We're answering Santa calls,' " Terri says.
Col. Harry Shoup came to be known as the "Santa Colonel." He died in 2009.

"The airmen had this big glass board with the United States on it and Canada, and when airplanes would come in they would track them," Pam says.
"And Christmas Eve of 1955, when Dad walked in, there was a drawing of a sleigh with eight reindeer coming over the North Pole," Rick says.
"Dad said, 'What is that?' They say, 'Colonel, we're sorry. We were just making a joke. Do you want us to take that down?' Dad looked at it for a while, and next thing you know, Dad had called the radio station and had said, 'This is the commander at the Combat Alert Center, and we have an unidentified flying object. Why, it looks like a sleigh.' Well, the radio stations would call him like every hour and say, 'Where's Santa now?' " Terri says.
"And later in life he got letters from all over the world, people saying, 'Thank you, Colonel,' for having, you know, this sense of humor. And in his 90s, he would carry those letters around with him in a briefcase that had a lock on it like it was top-secret information," she says. "You know, he was an important guy, but this is the thing he's known for."
"Yeah," Rick says, "it's probably the thing he was proudest of, too."

Sony DID Reach Out To Obama, Even Though He Says They Did Not


God, what a fucking liar Barack Obama is.

From Deadline:
“I think (Sony) made a mistake,” President Obama said earlier on Friday in a press conference addressing the Sony hacking attack, which the FBI said the North Korean government was responsible for. 
“That’s not what America is about… I wish they’d spoken to me first. I would have told them, ‘Do not get into a pattern in which you’re intimidated by these kinds of criminal attacks’.” 
In his CNN interview set to air in full on Anderson Cooper’s AC360 at 5PM PT/8PM ET, Lynton made a point of contradicting Obama’s statement that Sony had not asked for his help. 
“I did reach out,” said Lynton, who said Sony indeed sought assistance from the President. “We definitely spoke to a senior advisor in the White House to talk about the situation. The White House was certainly aware of the situation.”

Islam in Our Public Schools: Students Given Common Core Vocabulary Lesson That Promoted Mohammed And Islamic Faith


State-adopted text book

From Fox News:
Parents in Farmville, North Carolina want to know why their children were given a Common Core vocabulary assignment in an English class that promoted the Prophet Muhammad and the Islamic faith. 
“It really caught me off guard,” a Farmville Central High School student who was in the class told me. “If we are not allowed to talk about any other religions in school – how is this appropriate?” 
The Islamic vocabulary worksheet was assigned to seniors. “I was reading it and it caught me off guard,” the student told me. “I just looked at it and knew something was not right – so I emailed the pages to my mom.”

Just When You Thought ISIS Couldn't Get Any More Vile

It seems decapitation, while fun for the entire Muslim family, may not be paying the bills.

So what's a blood-thirsty, mouth-breathing, backwards-thinking killer with a penchant for baggy black clothing, and monthly budgetary concerns to do?

All those who guessed Amway, please sit in the back of the room.

All those who guessed they're cutting out and selling people's organs - well done.

How Scuzlims Try To Shut Us Up



Here's the thing:

Sharia is Sedition.

Burqas should be banned, because they are essentially the mental/emotional chains of the enslavement of women.

Apostasy is not a crime, it is a solution.

Homosexuality is ok with me, especially when Mohammed wants to gargle other men's balls.

Rule #1: If you stand to be murdered for saying the things I just wrote above, then you live in a society which is anti-Free Speech, and oppressive of the Individual.

We must all choose, for ourselves, individually, whether we are willing to put up with such strictures.

It Turns Out Christians Are Waging a Crusade Against Muslims After All



From Middle East Eye:
The Syriac Military Council (MFS) was established in January 2013 to protect the marginalised Assyrian Christian communities in Syria. 
They have fought to defend themselves from the Islamic State, Al-Nusra Front and Ahrar al-Sham and frequently work in tandem with the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG). 
As sectarian violence swamps Syria, MFS aim to defend their land, religion and identity in a region where Christians are increasingly finding themselves unwelcome.
"... finding themselves unwelcome."

As if they had a fight at the Thanksgiving table.

Fuck the media.

Here's an idea for Christians: Muslims kill one of us, we will two of them.

The Extraordinary Life of Barack Obama's Imaginary Son

Thaman "Tommy" Obama

From Ricochet:


In an upcoming People magazine interview, Barack and Michelle Obama sit down and discuss life as the First Oppressed Couple of the United States. Hoping to shed light and relate to recent events in Ferguson, Missouri, and New York City, Barack reached into the upstairs White House bedroom of his mind and called upon his famous imaginary son to make an appearance:
The small irritations or indignities that we experience are nothing compared to what a previous generation experienced,” President Obama said. “It’s one thing for me to be mistaken for a waiter at a gala. It’s another thing for my son to be mistaken for a robber and to be handcuffed, or worse, if he happens to be walking down the street and is dressed the way teenagers dress.
Once again, Barack Obama’s imaginary son has found himself unfairly in trouble with the law. If you recall, his imaginary son was also shot by an imaginary neighborhood watch guard in the same style as Trayvon Martin. But Obama’s imaginary son is plucky and resilient and has lived a hard life in the hood so he keeps bouncing back.
In his life, Obama’s imaginary son has been shot at, concussed out of football, and racially profiled. Yet he keeps picking himself up and carrying on. Obama’s imaginary son should be an example to us all. No matter what kind of imaginary circumstances we find ourselves in, we can continue on with our imaginary lives.

Joshua Dysart going to Kurdistan, but under UN sponsorship

The comics writer Joshua Dysart has announced on his site he's traveling to Iraq's Kurdish region for goals of research. While it would seem like he's taking up a noble mission to help Kurds suppressed by Iraq's Islamofascists, his choice of whom to travel and work with isn't great:
For over a year now I’ve been in contact with some people at the United Nations World Food Programme, the world’s largest humanitarian organization concerned with hunger and food security. We’ve been plotting to tell some stories about the complexity and necessity of feeding the world’s displaced people in an engaging way. Now we’re finally getting started and soon I’ll be leaving for northern Iraq. There, I’ll begin researching the current situation facing Kurdish refugees fleeing the Syrian conflict and the violent push of the Islamic State. The situation is incredibly dire, especially with winter coming. In the Kurdistan Region of northern Iraq the temperatures can range from 40 degrees Fahrenheit down to near 0 this time of year.
He's right that ISIS are the evil entity, and that nobody innocent should have to starve, but why does he think a political organization that's been Islamofascism's worst enabler - with some of the worst violators of human rights sitting on their own security councils - are the kind of people he should be associating himself with? The UN was also guilty of involvement in the Oil-for-Food scandal, and one of their worst members of recent was Richard Falk, an anti-Israelist and 9-11 Truther. Falk's offenses even include blaming America after the terrorist attack at Boston's marathon. Why associate himself with an organization that's not what some used to think it was, if it ever was at all?

Dysart's mission may be for a good cause, but he shouldn't be working with members of the UN to fulfill it, since they're some of the most dishonest people you can find, and willfully employed some pure scum on their payroll. If he were smart, he'd look for a better relief organization to travel to Kurdistan with.

You're So Dark



You got your H.P. Lovecraft
Your Edgar Allan Poe
You got your unkind of ravens
And your murder of crows
Catty eyelashes and your Dracula cape
Been flashing triple A passes
At the cemetary gates

Cause you're so dark, babe
But I want you hard
You're so dark, babe
You're so dark
You're so dark
You're so dark

And you're so mysterious
Got that obsession with death
I saw your driving your Prius
And even that was Munster Koach-esque
You watch Italian horror and you listen to the scores
Leather-clad and spike collar
I want you down on all fours

Cause you're so dark, babe
But I want you hard
You're so dark, babe

I know you're nothing like mine
Cause she's walking on sunshine
And your love would tear us apart
And I know I'm not your type
Cause I don't shun the daylight
But baby I'm willing to start

You're so dark

NASA CO2 MAP SHOWS BIOMASS BURNING IN SOUTH AMERICA AND AFRICA RELEASES MORE CO2 THAN US AND EU INDUSTRIES!


From the Astute Blogger:
Nasa's Orbiting Carbon Observatory (OCO-2) has returned its first global maps of the greenhouse gas CO2. 
The satellite was sent up in July to help pinpoint the key locations on the Earth's surface where carbon dioxide is being emitted and absorbed. 
This should help scientists better understand how human activities are influencing the climate. 
The new maps contain only a few weeks of data in October and November, but demonstrate the promise of the mission. 
Clearly evident within the charts is the banding effect that describes how emitted gases are mixed by winds along latitudes rather than across them. 
Also apparent are the higher concentrations over South America and southern Africa. 
These are likely the result of biomass burning in these regions. 
THE REGIONS THAT ARE RED HAVE MUCH MORE CO2 THAN THE OTHER REGIONS. 
THE RED REGIONS ARE HIGH CO2 PRODUCING REGIONS BECAUSE THEY HAVE FOREST FIRES, 
AND BECAUSE THEY BURN A LOT OF WOOD AND DRIED MANURE AS FUEL.
GO READ THE WHOLE THING.

The Implications of the Cuban Reset


Thanks to our Anonymous commenter for the following:

There is more to this "normalization" with Cuba than meets the eye given the secrecy behind it's development... recall:

Reuters: Iranian leader says Cuba, Iran think alike. BY JEFF FRANKS. HAVANA Thu Jan 12, 2012 12:15pm EST

Prior to that...

In 2008 debate Obama indicated he would be willing to meet immediately with Cuba's leader without any preconditions

If one was concerned about Obama's amnesty/open borders/refusal to deport violent & repeat offender illegals, imagine how his efforts with Cuba/Iran are going to pay violent dividends here in the US under this new 'normalization' invasion effort.

With an anticipated welcome wagon for fully indoctrinated/seasoned henchmen infused with indignant Marxism/Muhammedism will likely stir this multicultural/polarized social construct prior to the 2016 election cycle.

Also recall Obama's puppetmaster aka Sr. WH advisor, Iranian-born Valerie Jarrett's famous less than veiled threat: After we win this election, it's our turn. Payback time. Everyone not with us
is against us and they better be ready because we don't forget. The ones who helped us will be rewarded, the ones who opposed us will get what they deserve.
There is going to be hell to pay. Congress won't be a problem for us
this time. No election to worry about after this is over and we have two judges ready to go."

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT VIDEO.

Reliance of the Traveler (p. 746 - 8.2) - "Speaking is a means to achieve objectives. If a praiseworthy aim is attainable through both telling the truth and lying, it is unlawful to accomplish through lying because there is no need for it. When it is possible to achieve such an aim by lying but not by telling the truth, it is permissible to lie if attaining the goal is permissible (N:i.e. when the purpose of lying is to circumvent someone who is preventing one from doing something permissible), and obligatory to lie if the goal is obligatory... it is religiously precautionary in all cases to employ words that give a misleading impression...

EU court orders removal of Hamas from terror blacklist

Hamas Nazi Salute

From Agency French Press:
Luxembourg (AFP) - The Palestinian Islamic militant group Hamas must be removed from the EU's terrorism blacklist, but its assets will stay frozen, a European court ruled on Wednesday. 
The original listing in 2001 was based not on sound legal judgements but on conclusions derived from the media and the Internet, the General Court of the European Union said in a statement. 
But it stressed that Wednesday's decision to remove Hamas was based on technical grounds and does "not imply any substantive assessment of the question of the classification of Hamas as a terrorist group." 
The freeze on Hamas's funds will also temporarily remain in place for three months pending any appeal by the EU, the Luxembourg-based court said. 
Hamas's military wing was added to the European Union's first-ever terrorism blacklist drawn up in December 2001 in the wake of the September 11 attacks on the United States.   
The EU blacklisted the political wing of Hamas in 2003. 
"The General Court finds that the contested measures are based not on acts examined and confirmed in decisions of competent authorities but on factual imputations derived from the press and the Internet," the court said. 
Instead, such an action had to be based on facts previously established by competent authorities. it said.

75% of Germans Agree With PEGIDA Anti-Islam Demonstrations



I posted on these demos two days ago. Here's the other post.

Only 13 percent of Germans completely disagree with theh PEGIDA anti-Islam demonstrations. 75 percent agree fully or to some degree


The latest PEGIDA demonstration in Dresden had 15,000+ participants, and the Danish state tv, Danmarks Radio, noted that “It was the German middle class, who demonstrated today.
Germany is finally waking up, after being paralyzed by the burden of bad conscience from the 2nd WW, general political correctness, and cowardice. Criticising the power of religion, standing up for the equality of women and fighting for the freedom to express oneself – even if it insults others or opposes the “normal” – used to be the Left’s key issues. Today that same Left call it racist, Fascism or even Nazism. But standing up against Islam has nothing to do with racism (as far as I know, nobody changed color after converting) and the mudslinging Socialists who do nothing else than name calling should know that Fascism and National Socialism (Nazism) are both Leftist political ideologies.
Standing up against Islam’s soldiers and against political correctness activates and increases the most noble human qualities: honesty, bravery, gut feeling, cooperation, hard work, intelligence, and compassion. It is no surprise that one meets the best people in the counter-Islam movement.
I assume that the 13 percent who completely disagree with the PEGIDA demonstrations are mainly Muslims. 75 percent are either partly, mostly of completely sympathise with the PEGIDA demonstrations.

65% of America's Children Live in Households on Federal Aid Programs


How's that Socialism working out for you, Obama voters?
The Census Bureau reported in a study released this week that 65 percent of American children lived in households taking aid from one or more federal program as of the fall of 2011. 
"Almost two-thirds (65 percent) of children," said the Census Bureau, "lived in households that participated in at least one or more of the following government aid programs: Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF), the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC), Medicaid, and the National School Lunch Program." 
How to be dependent on government is now one of the earliest life lessons America is teaching nearly a supermajority of children.

Fuk No Ko: New York Premiere of The Interview Cancelled Due To Terrorist Threat

What a sad place we've come to as a world that I may have to go see a Seth Rogen movie, ON CHRISTMAS DAY, to make a stand for Freedom of Speech.



Back when George Bush named North Korea one of the Axis of Evil, I must admit, I thought it was hyperbole. 

As evil as North Korea is, as a nation, to it's people, it has not caused worldwide problems on the level of Islam.

But now, North Korea has threatened terrorist acts on Christmas Day, against theaters which show The Interview.

I don't know about you, but I see that as a challenge.

Fuk No Ko. I'm going to walk into the local theater with a big fucking American Flag and big fucking Popcorn, and a god damned tanker of Coca Cola, and I'm going to laugh my fucking ass off, even if the movie isn't funny for a second.

It's the least we can do.

From the BBC:
The New York premiere of The Interview, a comedy about the assassination of North Korea's president, has been cancelled amid threats from hackers. 
A spokesman for the cinema chain due to host the screening said it had been shelved. Hackers targeting Sony Pictures had threatened to attack US cinemas showing the studio's film. 
They belong to the same group which has released emails and data stolen from Sony. Calling themselves Guardians of Peace, the hackers mentioned the 9/11 attacks in a recent warning, claiming "the world will be full of fear". 
"Remember the 11th of September 2001. We recommend you to keep yourself distant from the places at that time," the hacker group wrote in a message on Tuesday. "If your house is nearby, you'd better leave," they add. 
"Whatever comes in the coming days is called by the greed of Sony Pictures Entertainment."
Anyway, it would be advisable for the CIA to make this movie become a prophetic piece of cinema.

It is time to assassinate the entire leadership of the Potemkin nation of North Korea.

Smoke And Mirrors


Two proverbs: "A rose by any other name smells as sweet" and "A rotten mackerel by moonlight still stinks."

From Obama issues 'executive orders by another name' (USA Today, December 16, 2014):
...Obama has made prolific use of memoranda despite his own claims that he's used his executive power less than other presidents. "The truth is, even with all the actions I've taken this year, I'm issuing executive orders at the lowest rate in more than 100 years," Obama said in a speech in Austin last July. "So it's not clear how it is that Republicans didn't seem to mind when President Bush took more executive actions than I did."

Obama has issued 195 executive orders as of Tuesday. Published alongside them in the Federal Register are 198 presidential memoranda — all of which carry the same legal force as executive orders....

IS OBAMA CULPABLE IN TODAY'S MURDER OF 141 PEOPLE (MOSTLY CHILDREN) AT THE SCHOOL IN PAKISTAN?


From the BBC:
The US military confirmed it "transferred custody" of three Pakistanis, but did not reveal their identities. 
The Afghan government was not involved in the transfer, the US said. 
Correspondents say the repatriation of a senior Taliban figure is extremely unusual. 
It could relate to attempts to improve Afghanistan-Pakistan ties, they say.   
While the US did not confirm Latif Mehsud was among those transferred, Pakistani officials said Latif Mehsud had been "released". 
Several senior officials said that the commander had been secretly flown to Pakistan earlier this week. 
The identity of the other two men is not yet known. The three men had been held by the US at Bagram airbase in Afghanistan. 
The office of the US Forces in Afghanistan said that the transfer took pace after talks between the US and Pakistan. 
"In making a decision to transfer a detainee, we take into account the totality of relevant factors relating to the individual and the government that may receive him, including but not limited to any diplomatic assurances that have been provided," the US military said in a statement.   
Latif Mehsud was second-in-command to the former Pakistan Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud, who was killed in a US drone strike last year. 
He was seized by the Afghan army in October 2013 in eastern Afghanistan, close to the Pakistani border, then held by US forces at Bagram airbase.

Pakistan: Muslims Successfully Murder 120 People For Allah - Motive Not Yet Known


From the Associated Press:
PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) — Taliban gunmen stormed a military-run school in the northwestern Pakistani city of Peshawar on Tuesday, killing 126 people, officials said, in the worst attack to hit the country in years. 
The overwhelming majority of the victims were students at the army public school, which has children and teenagers in grades 1-10. Pakistani Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the assault and rushed to Peshawar to show his support for the victims. 
The horrific attack, carried out by a relatively small number of militants from the Tehreek-e-Taliban, a Pakistani militant group trying to overthrow the government, also sent dozens of wounded flooding into local hospitals as terrified parents searched for their children.= 
"My son was in uniform in the morning. He is in a casket now," wailed one parent, Tahir Ali, as he came to the hospital to collect the body of his 14-year-old son Abdullah. "My son was my dream. My dream has been killed."
Allah, the murderer of dreams.

RISE OF NATIONALISM IN GERMANY (Germans Who Don't Want Islam to Take Over Their Country) SETS OFF ALARMS


It was bound to happen, eventually.

You can't just have a pseudo-authority like the EU, or UN, dictate to nations around the Western world, how they will run their countries. Eventually the people of one of those countries is going to get angry.

In fact, they have a right to be very angry.

But the thing is, when some people get angry, they are rational.

While Germany is a highly rational country, in it's intellectual tradition, it has not been highly been highly rational when it has gotten angry.

Good job, EU.

Good job, UN.

You guys stirred up the hornet's nest. Now let's see how history reacts:
Pegida holds ‘Islamisation’ protest, using slogan from 1989 campaign against East German government. Its members have been dubbed the “pinstriped Nazis” and they refer to their demonstrations as “evening strolls” through German cities. 
But on Monday night, an estimated 15,000 people joined Pegida, or Patriotic Europeans Against Islamisation of the West, in a march through Dresden carrying banners bearing slogans such as “Zero tolerance towards criminal asylum seekers”, “Protect our homeland” and “Stop the Islamisation”. 
Lutz Bachmann, the head of Pegida, a nascent anti-foreigner campaign group, led the crowds, either waving or draped in German flags, in barking chants of “Wir sind das Volk”, or “We are the people”, the slogan adopted by protesters in the historic “Monday demonstrations” against the East German government in the runup to the fall of the Berlin Wall. 
Associating themselves with the freedom demonstrations has given Pegida protests an air of moral respectability even though there are hundreds of rightwing extremists in their midst, as well as established groups of hooligans who are known to the police, according to Germany’s federal office for the protection of the constitution. 
“The instigators are unmistakably rightwing extremists,” a federal spokesman said.
Are they?

I hope not.

Given the Guardian's track record of calling everyone who cares about the Western Tradition a "Right-Wing Extremist", I actually doubt these people are extremists of any sort.

The Guardian are anti-Western extremists. Yes, of that there is no doubt.

But we shall see how this turns out in Germany.

And, if it turns out badly, the fault lies solely with the Left, who have enforced an untenable situation vis a vis Muslim immigration.

Check out the comments in reaction to this hail of ignorance at the Guardian:

DOUGTHEAVENGER SAYS:
How about facing the threats of our time instead of fighting the NAZIs who were vanquished by a previous generation. Cowards want to fight old battles that have already been won and where they think the outcome is certain. Man up and face the real enemies of today.
MEGAWURST SAYS:
The Pegida has nothing to do with Nazi ideology and "pure blood". The demands of the Pegida people are written down and are reasonable. You could not be more wrong about Germany and the aims of the Pegida movement.
ROBERT88871 SAYS:
If you don't want your country over run by a bunch of Islamo-fascists, you're a "nazi". And why should private Christian schools be controlled by the government just because a bunch of radical Islamists who may teach violence against non-Muslims? The left wing so desperately wants to eliminate borders and culture that they are willing to destroy a nation.

Sydney Jihadist Wrote Day Before Attack “Islam Is The Religion Of Peace”

The Muslims Are Restless
(14 December 2014) – MONIS: Islam is the religion of peace, that’s why Muslims fight against the oppression and terrorism of USA and its allies including UK and Australia. 
If we stay silent towards the criminals we cannot have a peaceful society. The more you fight with crime, the more peaceful you are. 
Islam wants peace on the Earth, that’s why Muslims want to stop terrorism of America and its allies. When you speak out against crime you have taken one step towards peace.
Back in October he said Islam is Peace, and then called on Muslims to become "Peace Activists".
A message apparently sent by Monis in October to members of the Muslim community and published on his personal website voiced support for non-violent activism. 
“Islam is the religion of peace and a Muslim should be a peace activist,” Monis wrote in a letter he signed “Sheikh Haron”. 
“Islam is against oppression and any unfair violence. Islam is against terrorism.

GOOD! MOVE ALL THE FRIGGIN' JIHADISTS TO VATICAN CITY

Pope Francis Being Fitted For His Death Shroud

From Yahoo News:
Vatican spokesman Federico Lombardi said the Holy See welcomed recent signs President Barack Obama appears to have accelerated efforts to close the controversial facility where some detainees have been held for more than a decade without charge and tortured. 
He said the Vatican stood ready to "help find adequate humanitarian solutions through our international contacts" in order to help place detainees, adding that Parolin and Kerry had discussed the issue in depth. 
Obama came to power six years ago promising to close Guantanamo, but has been frustrated in his efforts by a combination of opposition from Congress and the difficulties involved in finding homes for prisoners who are often unwanted by their home states and/or suspected of involvement in terrorist actions, including the September 11, 2001, attacks in some cases. 
The pope made clear his feelings on the kind of abuses associated with Guantanamo in October, when he railed against the "penal populism" that led to countries facilitating torture, using the death penalty and incarcerating people without trial. 
"These abuses will only stop if the international community firmly commits to recognising... the principle of placing human dignity above all else," he said.
This Pope loves to shoot his mouth off about things over which he has no control or responsibility.

His big idea is, "Hey Kids, let's send the Jihadists to ..." (plug in the name of this or that Catholic Country, apparently). Screw that.

The truth is, Pope Francis is a Head of State. The Vatican is it's own country, with it's own state, recognized by the United Nations.

So, send the Jihadists to the State over which the Pope REALLY HAS CONTROL: VATICAN CITY.

Pope Francis can take care of them. He can bathe them, and feed them, and rub their tummies. He can fantasize that he's as Peaceful as Francis of Assisi. He can dream of how one day he'll be the fucking Pope of the Kingdom of Heaven, because he was such a good man on Earth, taking care of all the evil Jihadists.
