I Love This Woman!

Posted by Wickedpinto on July 13, 2007

Allah has a link to an interview with Ayaan Hirsi Ali.

FRIGGEN AWESOME! 

I especially like the part where the interviewer treats her like some quaint little creature who just crawled out of a propoganda school to spout cliche’s, only to be on the recieving end of this quote.

“You grew up in freedom, and you can spit on freedom because you don’t know what it is not to have freedom.”

Which is friggen AWESOME!

And she’s . . . I wouldn’t say hot, but definately there is something VERY adorable about her.

Shahada is a very beautiful thing

Posted by mesablue on July 8, 2007

Since they just killed off ‘Mickey Mouse’. Why not just have nine year olds discuss the killing of Jews?

More Palestinian children discussing how beautiful it would be to die while killing Jews.

They grow blow up so fast.

Sorry, couldn’t resist stealing that line from Hot Air commenter and blogger in his own right mind, Bad Candy/Sinistar/doubleplusundead.

I consider this child abuse. It’s disgusting.

You won’t see this kind of thing reported in most mainstream media outlets because it goes against the basic beliefs of the modern moonbat. Cognitive dissonance and all that.

It’s real and it won’t go away until we address the source of the problem — the extremists who brainwash their children into believing that hate and suicide bombings are not only acceptable, but the way to salvation.

Ask Fatah how they feel about Hamas right now.

More than 100 dead

Posted by Wickedpinto on July 7, 2007

The article paints a very negative picture, and it is pretty damn sad, but I can’t help this question about Iraq and other havens for insane lunatic’s willing to slaughter civilians, children, mothers and non-participatory fathers.  Is the problem in Iraq brought about by the US “invasion,” which is really a code word for “evil conquest by an alien western culture,” or is it that the previous regime, and the support from Iran and Syria has no problem putting HUGE amounts of modern explosives into the hands of lunatics?

I’m pro-second amendment, but I think it’s a fair bet that a truck’s worth of explosives would raise some eyebrows and deserves a little investigation and research.

The only occupation an unemployed undocummented iranian, syrian, saudi, pick your random islamic nation can fill is that of murderous animal.  Lets hope they engage in immigration reform, as well as enact a pogram.

Sorry, you gotta kill the loyalists, even we did it.

More wife beating advice

From our extremist Muslim friends.

Just in case there was any confusion from the last time.

Video at MEMRI TV.

“If blood or pus comes from your husbands nose and you lick it up, you still will not have observed all of his rights.”

Lovely.

When will the supporters of women’s rights on the left stand up in outrage against this barbaric behavior?

Not until it furthers their political agenda, which means — never.

Free the film

Posted by mesablue on May 4, 2007

Free the film that PBS won’t let you see

NEW YORK — Where on Earth are the moderate Muslims? Thanks to PBS, they’re not on public television.


PBS has blocked “Islam vs. Islamists: Voices from the Muslim Center.” This new documentary funded with a $675,000 Corporation for Public Broadcasting grant contrasts the ubiquitous bearded, burqa-covered Muslim radicals with others seldom seen: men and women who wear Western attire, shave daily, show their female faces and prosper without slaughtering “infidels.”


While moderate Muslims may appear elsewhere on PBS, Uncle Sam’s TV channel declines to air this compelling, evenhanded and surprisingly tame film that explores the struggle between modern Muslims and their backward brethren. Produced by Canadian filmmaker Martyn Burke and the Center for Security Policy’s Alex Alexiev and Frank Gaffney, “Islam vs. Islamists” is no fire-breathing, Islamophobic screed. While it sympathizes with mellow Muslims targeted by their hotheaded co-religionists, it simply lets individual Muslims speak for themselves, with limited commentary none of it inflammatory.


Capital HQ a New York-based public-affairs organization quickly arranged a sold-out screening of “Islam” Tuesday night. Even after benches and folding chairs were dragged in from the Union Square 14-plex’s lobby, guests still clogged the aisles.


The film showcases brave, moderate Muslims like Naser Khader, a Syrian-born Danish legislator who preaches the separation of mosque and state. The mere fact that he votes in Copenhagen’s parliament enrages Muslim zealots.


“To make laws only a god does that. And there is only one god in Islam, and that is Allah,” says Slimane Abderrahmane, an Algerian-Danish alumnus of al Qaeda’s terror camps and, later, Guantanamo. “So you’re saying, ‘I’m just like Allah.’ And you can’t do that.”


Rather than submit to such Muslim crackpots, Khader fled Copenhagen for a small Danish town. He also requires 24-hour police protection. This is hardly paranoid. During the deadly Muslim overreaction to those newspaper images of Mohammed in Denmark’s Jyllands-Posten, Danish Muslim fanatic Ahmed Akkari said, “If Khader becomes minister of integration, shouldn’t someone dispatch two guys to blow up him and his ministry?”


The man who videotaped Akkari’s words also is in “Islam.”


Mohamed Sifaoui, a peaceful Algerian-French journalist, infiltrated a Parisian band of Muslim extremists. Some appeared via hidden camera. Others hammed it up, thinking Sifaoui was shooting an Islamist propaganda movie.


Since French TV showed his film, bodyguards have surrounded Sifaoui.


It is newsworthy that moderates such as Khader and Sifaoui need security agents to shield them from Allah’s potentially homicidal followers.


Nonetheless, PBS has nixed this film.

Go sign the petition:

FREE THE FILM PETITION


To Pat Harrison, President of the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and Members of the United States Congress:


We are among the taxpayers whose money has been used to make “Islam vs. Islamists: Voices from the Muslim Center” – a documentary that was supposed to be aired on the Public Broadcasting Service as part of its “America at a Crossroads” series.


Yet, we are unable to see this film, despite the fact that the information it relays about what is happening to moderate Muslims at the hands of the Islamists is, arguably, as important as any issue addressed by the documentaries that were broadcast in that series.


While PBS justifies its suppression of “Islam vs. Islamists” on the grounds that the film is “unfair” and not up to the network’s “standards” we believe that, as its underwriters and the public who own our country’s public airwaves, we have a right to judge for ourselves. Please do whatever is necessary to make this documentary available to us and all other Americans at the earliest possible time.

This is an extremely important piece of work that all of us need to see. We’ve been crying out for the Muslim middle in our society to stand up against Islamic extremism. It looks like some of them are — this movie could go a long way to persuade non Muslims away from the idea that everything Muslim is bad. Yet, PBS is choosing to quash it for the exact opposite reason. Someone doesn’t want you to see this film — no real suprise who it is.

has much more.

The religion of peace atrocities

Posted by mesablue on April 1, 2007

If you are still one of the uninformed sheeple who feel that muslim extremists pose no threat to the world — read the articles that I link here. If you are not compeletely disgusted and horrified, I suggest that you make a trip to the Middle East to commune with your buddies. Make sure you wear the bacon scented tuxedo to ingratiate yourself — until they cut off your head with a rusty knife while video taping it for their pals.

The Christian victims of Iraq

Holy Week is a time when Christians think of the crucifixion of Jesus. This year, they should also be meditating on another crucifixion: that of a 14-year-old boy, nailed to a cross by Islamists in Iraq.


This diabolical crime was part of a campaign by jihadists to extinguish one of the most ancient Christian Churches in the world, that of the Assyrians.


I don’t know if the Christian teenager who was crucified in Basra last October knew Jesus’s language, but by the time the Islamists had finished with him he certainly knew a great deal about his suffering.

From The Catholic Herald:

“When they cook a dish in the Middle East, it is traditional to put the meat on top of the rice when they serve it. They kidnapped a woman’s baby in Baghdad, a toddler, and because the mother was unable to pay the ransom, they returned her child – beheaded, roasted and served on a mound of rice.” The infant’s crime was to be an Assyrian, but this story, reported by the Barnabus Fund, went unnoticed in the West, like so many other horrific accounts of Christian persecution in Iraq.


Since the invasion of Iraq, Muslim militants have bombed 28 churches and murdered hundreds of Christians. Last October, Islamists beheaded a priest in Mosul in revenge for the Pope’s remarks about Islam at Regensburg. But never let it be said that jihadis do not have a sense of ironic humour: that same month they crucified a 14-year-old Christian boy in Basra.

Barbaric. Disgusting. Evil.

The articles I link are very interesting, but try to blame the West for indifference to the suffering of Iraqi Christians as cause for the incidents. Never mind that we have over a hundred thousand young men and women on the ground working to quash these lowest of human scum.

I blame the animals that perpetrated the acts.

There is a large Assyrian Catholic and Chaldean community here in the Detroit area. Their plight over the centuries is well known to many here. The media, with their nano-second long term memory, like to blame us for anything bad that happens in Iraq, saying that toppling Saddam created a power vacuum that is responsible for the hideous events described above. Saddam was the reason hundreds of thousand of Iraqi Christians fled their country. Many returned after his toppling, some finding the situation too volatile and leaving once again.

Assyrian and Chaldean Christians were being persecuted long before the US invaded Iraq. The only difference now is that the bad actors are not following the orders of Saddam and his henchmen. Saddam was able to reign in some of the extremists in the past, but only because he pacified them with fear and the occasional mass slaughter.

Extremists with the support of Iran, Syria and Saudi Arabia are behind most of the the problems we are seeing today. Any religion that fosters and tolerates this special kind of evil needs to be questioned. Moderate muslims say that these acts are not representative of most muslims.

So, while these primitive animals continue to wage terror on their own citizens, all in the name of Islam — we wait for the voice of moderate Islam to stand up and condemn their savage brethren.

So far, the silence has been deafening.

Ah, Spain….

Posted by mesablue on March 26, 2007

This is awesome.

Victim wears Mohammad bomb cartoon to Madrid trial

MADRID (Reuters) – A woman who lost her husband in the 2004 Madrid train bombings displayed an infamous cartoon mocking the Prophet Mohammad on her T-shirt in front of 29, mostly Muslim, suspects on trial for the attacks on Monday.


The woman’s white T-shirt showed Mohammad wearing a bomb as a turban — one of a series published by Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten which unleashed violent protests by some Muslims last year.


Ten bombs ripped through four commuter trains on March 11, 2004, killing 191 people — attacks which public prosecutors blame on a group of Islamist militants inspired by al-Qaeda.


The woman sat in the front row of the court wearing the T-shirt for around half-an-hour before getting up, walking up to the glass cage containing the defendants and finally walking out of the court, judicial sources said.

Good for her.

Of course, this would never be allowed in a courtroom here in the land of the free and the home of the brave.

We get Code Pinko’s and Impeach Bush transvestites.

And, lest anyone get their panties in a bunch, this is a terror trial in which 29 terrorists are on trial for using Islam as an excuse to slaughter innocent civilians whom they considered infidels, to make a political point. When the cartoons were first published, no on really cared — it was an exercise in irony. Then, a couple of imams created their own versions of the cartoons, added them to the rest and then went on a little terrorist/riot incitement trip in which dozens of people were killed including a Catholic priest and a nun — tens of thousands rioted. It later turned out that the imams had taken an image from a French hog calling festival with a man calling a hog with a pig nose on his face and passed it off as one of the original cartoons — which it was clearly not.

Religion of peace, indeed. It’s long past time for moderate Muslims to stand up and separate themselves from the “small amount” of their society that deals in terror and murder.

Muslims have carried out over 7835 terror attacks worldwide SINCE 9/11. (see my sidebar)

One woman in Spain has more courage than all of the governments in the world.

Beirut is burning….again

Posted by mesablue on January 24, 2007

Hezbollah is rioting in Beirut. Over the last several weeks, Hezbollah had been camped out on the city center hoping to disrupt and take over the democratically elected government. Not content with the damage they caused to Lebanon when they attacked Israel and started a war, they have now thrown the country into near civil war.

Michael Totten just returned from Lebanon and has coverage.

Hezbollah Riots in Lebanon (Continuously Updated)

While I was in Lebanon gathering the material I’ve been publishing, Hezbollah kept threatening to strangle the country by seizing major roads, including the one that leads to the airport. I was worried I might get stuck there, but I didn’t. Today, though, they finally make good on their threat. Palestinian guerillas are reportedly helping.


Future TV and LBC say there are clashes between rioters and commuters. Cars, as well as tires, are burning.


Violence is spreading. Three people have been shot. Sunni and Shia Muslims fought each other with sticks, rocks, and automatic weapons in Southern Beirut. Violent clashes, often involving gunfire, are erupting elsewhere in the country as well.


Notice, also, that the violent clashes in the streets are mostly between Sunnis and Shia, not between Christians and Shia. This is, and was, entirely predictable. Those who think Hezbollah is a popular movement with the support of Lebanon’s Muslims as a whole should think again.

Take a close look at the methods of extremist Islam.

Will the world finally stand up and condemn Hezbollah as the terrorist organization that it is? I doubt it.

These are the same animals that blew up the US Marine barracks. Yet today, the MSM and lefties continously sugarcoat and spin the stories coming out of Lebanon. Reuters was caught sending photoshopped and staged pictures out to the major news outlets of the world.

Enough already.

Stupid terrorist tricks

Posted by mesablue on January 14, 2007

What happens when ten jihadis get together for the day to plan an ambush on our troops and bring along their video camera?

“Oops! Somebody forget to turn off the video camera, because he was fucking dead.”

Click on the link above for video. Warning, towards the end there are some very graphic images.

These scumbags like to record their crimes so they can send recordings of beheading Catholic schoolgirls or blowing up crowds of civilians to each other as some kind of islamo-porn.

Whenever they try to take our armed forces head on, they tend to get their asses blown off.

This was one of those days.

Welcome to Baghdad West

Posted by mesablue on January 9, 2007

This could start to get interesting…

Vandals hit Shi’a stores in Detroit

Muslim leaders cite Saddam’s execution in Detroit damage


DETROIT — Muslim leaders say a spate of vandalism over the weekend involving stores owned by local Iraqis could stem from brewing sectarian Islamic tension over the execution of Saddam Hussein.


While Shi’a and Sunni Muslims are fighting in Iraq, the two groups generally get along in Metro Detroit and the United States. But Muslim and Arab leaders say the hanging of Saddam, and especially the timing of the execution, spurred hard feelings.


They say the vandalized property was owned or operated by people of Iraqi descent who are Shi’a.


“People are scared to come here. It’s very dangerous, this place,” said Inaam Alkhafaji, referring to her Detroit business, Dana Media, whose windows were broken.


“It’s a war with the Iraqi people. Maybe next time they kill us.”


The tension that concerns Muslim leaders was spurred by the timing of the execution, according to Dawud Walid, the executive director of the Council on American Islamic Relations and other community leaders.


Saddam was ordered hanged by the Shi’a controlled government of Iraq on the morning Sunnis began celebrating Eid al-Adha, the holiest of Islamic festivals. Most Shi’a did not begin to celebrate until the following day.


While Shi’a Iraqis took to the streets of Dearborn to celebrate, many other Muslims viewed the timing of the execution as an insult. Realizing the tension in the local community, some clergymen were considering meeting this week to take action.


Shattered glass remained inside a cardboard box outside of Alkhafaji’s store on Warren Avenue Monday. Next door, the window of the Al-Akhasi restaurant was boarded up — it, too, had been smashed. A person called the restaurant earlier that day and made a threat that an incident would occur.


The incidents follow similar acts of vandalism at stores along Seven Mile near Woodward, Arab leaders say.

Seven Mile and Woodward, about a mile from my house. Great.

Update: Welcome back, Ace of Spades HQ readers. Wow, twice in one week. I feel so special.

I’m going to do my best Zombie/Green Helmet Guy impression and go take some pictures. Check back later to see if I make it out alive — mesablue.

Islamic guide to beating your wife

Posted by mesablue on January 5, 2007

“Don’t do it in front of the children, avoid the sensitive parts of her body.”

“Don’t cause any bleeding, don’t break any bones.”

Then, you are fine. Video here.

WTF? It blows my mind that organizations like NOW and the ACLU will support every politician who says that we are wrong to fight against extreme islamofacism and dhimmnification when this is how they treat women. This is not just some obscure video, this is a respected imam on a national broadcast.

Michael Totten — Hanging with Hezbollah

Posted by mesablue on January 4, 2007

So, you think you know a little bit about what’s going on in the Middle East, or specifically, Lebanon? Not unless you read Michael Totten.

Michael is back from his latest trip overseas. This year he’s been in Beirut, Turkey and Northern Iraq, Israel during the conflict with Hezbollah and now back to Beirut to find out first hand how the Lebanese are coping after the Hezbollah/Israeli conflict and in the March 14th era.

If you care anything about what is going on the the world, get over to Michael’s site and start reading.

Hanging with Hezbolla

BEIRUT – After Hezbollah mounted a protest aimed at bringing down Lebanon’s elected government, several thousand demonstrators remained downtown and camped out in tents, effectively occupying the center of the city. They first tried to seize and occupy Prime Minister Fouad Seniora’s office in the Ottoman-era Serail. But Seniora warned Hezbollah that if his office were taken he could not control his “street.” Translation: If you seize the state’s institutions, the Sunni Muslims of Lebanon are going to kill you. Hezbollah knew this was true, and so they backed off. It didn’t hurt that the government of Saudi Arabia backed up Seniora on this point. But Hezbollah’s occupation of the neutral parts of downtown continues even into 2007.


I ventured downtown myself the day after the made-for-TV protest was over, when Hezbollah and friends no longer wanted attention from foreign media. Their lack of interest, if I could call it that, was instantly obvious. Ubiquitous security agents with the tell-tale sunglasses and earpieces stared at me coldly and turned their heads as I walked past.


Hundreds of tents were set up in parks, parking lots, and squares downtown, most of them made of white canvass. I snapped a few pictures, and nobody stepped in to stop me.

One group of tents in a parking lot across from the Hariri mosque were all made of black canvas. What’s up with the black tents, I wondered. So I walked over and lifted my camera to my face.


Five ear-pieced Hezbollah agents aggressively pounced on me at once. They surrounded me and screamed “No!” Then they physically pushed me away from the tents and got in my face so I could not see behind them.


I’ve been accused of spying many times while in Lebanon, and it wouldn’t surprise me in the least if this is what the Hezbollah agents thought I was doing. Many Lebanese are paranoid – often with good reason – but no one is nearly as paranoid as Hezbollah. (As a side note, one Lebanese man who suspected I worked for the CIA literally begged me to get him a job.)


“Sahafi!” I yelled back at them. Journalist!


“No, no, no!” they yelled and pushed me away. I lowered my camera, threw up my hands, and turned to walk away. Then they left me alone.


It’s almost always like this or worse when I run into actual members of the Hezbollah militia.

Go read the rest

Happy New Year Islamic style

Posted by mesablue on January 1, 2007

Our friends from the Religion of Peace celebrated the New Year by setting off eight bombs in civilian areas in Thailand.

Bombs in Bangkok via Hot Air.

Eight bombs went off, total, in shopping centers, supermarkets (Tesco is a British chain, FWIW), and a river pier, with a ninth found and defused. Thai police sent everyone home from New Years’ parties which may have saved a few lives. At this point (2:37 PM Pacific) the toll is two dead, thirty injured.


There’s a reasonable argument to be made that this is about domestic politics. Thailand suffered a military coup earlier this year, and the Bangkok Post describes some ongoing resistance to them of the pyromaniacal persuasion.

Official Thai policy is to deny the obvious, blame anyone other than Islamofascists for the violence, and mislead the public about the true nature of the threat.


The notion that Thaksin voters or idealistic proponents of representative democracy are eager to murder civilians at random is insane. If Muslims are not behind yesterday’s bombings, then Thailand harbors a network of sophisticated sociopathic mass murderers whose motives and goals are inconceivable.


The only faction in Thailand with the means, the will and the desire to slaughter innocent people is the Islamofascist underground.

Too bad he’s already dead

Posted by mesablue on December 28, 2006

The State department has declassified a document that clearly implicates Yasser Arafat in the 1973 killings of American ambassador to Sudan, Cleo Noel, his deputy George Moore and a Belgian diplomat.

This is the sort of thing that will get you a Tomahawk missile in the ear, but we sat on this information for 33 years so as not to cause discomfort for our Arab “friends”. That’s worked out really well for us.

The document in it’s entirety is available from the State Department’s website here.

DECLASSIFIED
PA/HO Department of State
E.O. 12958, as amended
May 4, 2006


SECRET
NO FOREIGN DISSEM / CONTROLLED DISSEM


THE SEIZURE OF THE SAUDI ARABIAN EMBASSY IN KHARTOUM


In the early evening hours of 1 March 1973, eight Black September Organization (BSO) terrorists seized the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Khartoum as a diplomatic reception honoring the departing United States Deputy Chief of Mission (DCM) was ending. After slightly wounding the United States Ambassador and the Belgian Charge d’Affaires, the terrorists took these officials plus the United States DCM, the Saudi Arabian Ambassador, and the Jordanian Charge d’Affaires hostage. In return for the freedom of the hostages, the captors demanded the release of individuals, mostly Palestinian guerillas, imprisoned in Jordan, Israel, and the United States.


The Khartoum operation was planned and carried out with the full knowledge and personal approval of Yasir Arafat, Chairman of the Palestinian Liberation Organization (PLO), and the head of Fatah. Fatah representatives based in Khartoum participated in the attack, using a Fatah vehicle to transport the terrorists to the Saudi Arabian Embassy.


Initially, the main objective of the attack appeared to be to secure the release of Fatah/BSO leader Muhammed Awadh (Abu Da’ud) from Jordanian captivity. Information acquired subsequently reveals that the Fatah/BSO leaders did not expect Awadh t be freed, and indicates that one of the primary goals of the operation was to strike at the United States because of its efforts to achieve a Middle East peace settlement which many Arabs believe would be inimical to Palestinian interests.


Negotiations with the BSO terrorist team were conducted primarily by the Sudanese Ministers of Interior and of Health. No effort was spared, within the capabilities of the Sudanese Government, to the secure freedom of the hostages. The terrorists extended their deadlines three times, but when they became convinced that their demands would not be met and after they reportedly had received orders from Fatah headquarters in Beirut, they killed the two United States officials and the Belgian Charge. Thirty-four hours later, upon receipt of orders from Yasir Arafat in Beirut to surrender, the terrorists released their other hostages unharmed and surrendered to Sudanese officials.


The Khartoum operation again demonstrated the ability of BSO to strike where least expected. The open participation of Fatah representatives in Khartoum in the attack provides further evidence of the Fatah/BSO relationship. The emergence of the United States as a primary fedayeen target indicates a serious threat of further incidents similar to what occurred in Khartoum.

History of religion

Posted by mesablue on December 20, 2006

How has the geography of religion evolved over the centuries, and where has it sparked wars? Our map gives us a brief history of the world’s most well-known religions: Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Judaism. Selected periods of inter-religious bloodshed are also highlighted. Want to see 5,000 years of religion in 90 seconds? Ready, Set, Go!

This is pretty interesting, it shows visually the advancement of the worlds major religions over time.

2006: The year of perpetual outrage

Posted by mesablue on December 20, 2006

While 2006 will be remembered for many fine examples of Absolute Moral Authority, it was also a year that saw many violent acts perpetrated with the excuse of “outrage” by our Muslim friends.

Michelle Malkin rounds up the years events in 2006: The year of perpetual outrage:

It began with the Danish cartoons. It ended with the flying imams. 2006 was a banner year for the Religion of Perpetual Outrage. Twelve turbulent months of fist-waving, embassy-burning, fatwa-issuing mayhem, intimidation, and murder resounded with the ululations of the aggrieved. All this in the name of defending Islam from “insult.” Let’s review.

In late January, masked Palestinian gunmen took over a European Union office in Gaza City to protest the publication of a dozen cartoons about Islam, Mohammed, and self-censorship in the Danish newspaper, the Jyllands-Posten. They stormed the building, burned Danish flags, and spearheaded an international boycott of Denmark products across the Muslim world.

This is a must read as the year comes to a close.

It’s easy to lose track of just how many incidents there were and how often this happens under the pretext of “outrage”.

2007 will not be any better as things come to a head in Iraq. We must continue to bring these incidents to the forefront in their true light.
