The Savagery is there for the world to see

From the horrors in Iraq and Syria to the violence in the streets of European cities, the burning of Jewish stores, the attacks on synagogues, and calls for Jewish blood, the world has been getting a steady diet of Islamic violence for years now, and it is only getting worse. The last remaining Christians are being killed or driven out of majority Muslim lands. The Jews in Israel are only safe from a second Holocaust because they are militarily strong enough to crush their Arab enemies. Jews in Europe are not so lucky. Their situation now is reminiscent of Europe in the late 1930s. It is not so much the native Europeans who are tormenting them as it is the large and restive Muslim populations, but the Europeans are guilty because they are tolerating the outrages.

Meanwhile, Muslim radicals like Anjem Choudary in the UK are loudly promising to establish an Islamic caliphate that will take over Europe and establish Islamic law under Sharia. Yet, much like Adolf Hitler in the 1920s and early 1930s, nobody wants to take these characters at their word. Political correctness is the order of the day. It is so much more comfortable to just maintain that they have hijacked their religion.

They have not hijacked anything. What they are doing is implementing Islam as a political ideology as it was always meant to be since the days of Mohammad. Islam was never designed to live in harmony with other religions at least after Mohammad was driven from Mecca to Medina. It was meant to conquer and to dominate. The so-called moderate Muslims cannot step up and challenge the Islamists head on. Why not?

For one thing, they know that they would lose the theological debate. When you delve into the Koran and the hadiths and the life of the Prophet, it is the Yusuf al Qaradawis of the world who have it exactly right.

Unlike our stealth jihadists and so-called moderate imams in the US like Muzammil Siddiqi, who hide behind a veneer of gentleness and inter-faith events, Qaradawi sits in Qatar and openly expresses his hatred for the Jews and his desire to die fighting the infidel, He openly says that Islam must continue to enforce the death penalty for apostates or it would not survive. Qaradawi is one of the most esteemed Islamic scholars in the Islamic world. He is also the spiritual mentor of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, his native country. And since he does not live in the West, he doesn't have to worry about offending anybody.

Secondly, peaceful Muslims risk death if they really stand up and fight against the Jihadists and the Islamists. They risk being declared apostates and blasphemers if they argue against what is written in the texts.

Yet the Muzammil Siddiqis of the world keep telling us that Islam is a religion of peace and tolerance not withstanding the daily horrors that go on around the world and the thousands of deaths that continue to pile up. As I have said repeatedly, most Muslims live their lives peacefully and can get along with non-Muslims at least in countries in which they are the minority. But if Islam is truly a religion of peace, which we would like to believe, why all the violence and hatred toward Jews and Christians?

Why are Sunnis and Shia killing each other over who should have been the rightful successor to Mohammad when he died in the 7th century?

Why is it a crime punishable by death to leave Islam or to criticize it?

At what point do we say, "Sorry all you decent peaceful Muslims, but we have to call it what it is."

We also have to call the current crisis in Gaza and the reaction to it for what it is. It is unbridled Jew hatred, no matter how much they deny it. Here in the US, they feel they have to deny it. Instead, they say they are "anti-Zionist". Hogwash. They will not accept Israel because it is Jewish.

And look at the protests we see all over the world. While pro-Israel demonstrators are peaceful and hold Israeli flags and their own national flags, the pro-Palestinian protesters hold Palestinian flags and even the flags of Jihad, Hamas or Hezbollah. In Berlin, they shout, "Jews to the Gas Chambers." And more often than not they are violent. They cannot control themselves.

I know there are so many decent and peaceful Muslims who are embarrassed by all this. However, they almost all remain silent. I fervently hope that they do not suffer backlash just for being Muslim. That is against what we stand for here in America. However, we cannot remain silent for risk of offending them. Their silence or their excuses and explanations have made them irrelevant to the issue that must be discussed. We must speak out against this savagery, and we must not be afraid to explain why these things are happening. We should not be tolerating this is our own countries. As far as those countries where Islam rules, they should be isolated by the rest of the world. No trade. No relations. No immigration. No aid. No nothing until the madness stops.

That would be truly protecting the human rights of our own people.

One of these days ...

It's another lonely evenin'
In another lonely town
But I ain't too young to worry
And I ain't too old to cry
When a woman gets me down

Got another empty bottle
And another empty bed
Ain't too young to admit it
And I'm not too old to lie
I'm just another empty head

That's why I'm lonely
I'm so lonely
But I know what I'm gonna do

I'm gonna ride on
Ride on
Ride on, standing on the edge of the road
Ride on, thumb in the air
Ride on, one of these days I'm gonna
Ride on, change my evil ways
Till then I'll just keep ridin' on ...

How the Saudis Are Covering the War

-Arab News
Protest in Berlin


The Saudi English news organ, Arab News has an article covering the fighting in Gaza, which unsurprisingly "tilts" to the Palestinian narrative, you might say. Note the accompanying photo which is from a pro-Palestinian protest in Berlin.

http://www.arabnews.com/news/605446

As for the photo, this is not only an image that conjures up the old anti-Semitic canard that Jews kill and devour the blood of Gentile children, but it is also reminiscent of the notorious anti-Jewish weekly from Nazi Germany, "Der Stuermer", whose editor was none other than the infamous Jew-baiter of Nuremberg, Julius Streicher.



Well, somewhere the executed Nazi must be smiling to see an image like that back in Germany.

Images like that are commonplace in the Arab world even in the mainstream media. However, in Germany, Nazi or Nazi-like images are illegal. One would hope that the justice minister in Germany would take a close look at that image and compare it to the one immediately above.




Non-pilot to be new commander of US Air Force in Pacific


It is deeply troubling that a command such as this would be given to someone who is NOT a pilot. Was she the BEST one qualified for this command or did she get the command just because she has a vagina? What a shame she is not a minority vagina, queer, lesbian transgender or gender neutral confused stupid. Then this would have been a grand slam promotion.

Did you find that the first lines offensive or insulting? Tough, if you did and if you agree with me, even better. At least it tells me, us, that you are paying attention.

Gen. Robinson has served as a Battle Manager and this is not in the same league as a career pilot. Perhaps I am off on this one or maybe you think I should just shut the hell up because what does PatriotUSA know about this?

Like I really care what YOU might think of me or my opinion? This promotion is nothing more than political correctness fueled by affirmative action and the push to 'diversify' our military at any and all costs. What does it matter if some servicemen, servicewomen or innocent civilians get killed on Gen. Robinson's watch because of her lacking the proper hands on experience that can only come from being a pilot?

My opinion might be not so hostile if Gen. Robinson was a pilot with years of experience, but she is not. The promotion of Gen. Robinson is just the latest move by the Obama regime to gut our military under the guise of diversity and progress. Just like having Chuck Hagel as Secretary of Defense.

You have indeed, come a long way, baby. All the way to the front line so you ladies now have the chance to be killed in combat along with men.

I fear this promotion will not end well especially when one takes into consideration the 'tranquil world' Obama has helped create and takes full credit for.

Non-pilot to be new commander of US Air Force in Pacific

Instead of achievement or performance criteria, the U. S. military under Obama is making personnel decisions based on political criteria of “diversity.”

The latest case in point:
Although all previous Air Force combatant commanders in active large theaters of operation — the Pacific, Europe and Central Command — have been combat pilots, for the first time a non-career pilot has been nominated to be Commander of the U. S. Air Force in the Pacific.

She is Lt. Gen. Lori J. Robinson who, although she’s had more than 900 flight hours, is not a career or combat pilot.

Lt. Gen. Lori Robinson

Rowan Scarborough reports for The Washington Times, July 17, 2014:
The White House has picked the first female general to head the Air Force in the Pacific, which will make her the first non-pilot to command air power in such a large theater of operation.

The Pentagon announced this week that Air Force Lt. Gen. Lori J. Robinson has been nominated for promotion to four-star general and as commander of Pacific Air Forces, the Air Force component of U.S. Pacific Command. It is a major combatant command whose air, ground and naval forces have broad responsibility for security in the Asia-Pacific region. Her nomination was sent to the Senate for confirmation.

Officials said pilots historically have commanded Air Force war-fighting components for the Pacific and for U.S. Air Forces Europe; Air Forces Central, which covers the Middle East and Afghanistan; and the 1st Air Force, which is part of Northern Command and protects U.S. skies.

Gen. Robinson is not a career pilot. Her military profession is air battle manager. She has served aboard the Air Force’s surveillance aircraft, the E-3 AWACs and E-8 JSTARS, and she was nominated for a promotion amid a drive for more diversity in the Pentagon.

A retired pilot said there is a reason the Air Force historically has put a pilot in charge of large combatant command Air Forces.

“It is because you make operational decisions that require the understanding of what you are going to ask pilots to execute in combat where the wrong decisions mean the difference between life and death,” the retired pilot said. “Now her vice commander and director of operations will be rated fighter pilots, but still she makes the decisions.”
Rose Richeson, an Air Force spokeswoman at the Pentagon, said, “The Air Force operates across three domains: air, space and cyberspace and provides capability and capacity in five core mission areas: Air and Space Superiority, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, Rapid Global Mobility, Global Strike and Command and Control. Lt. Gen. Robinson has demonstrated knowledge and experience across the entire spectrum of these mission areas as well as recent operational application supporting coalition activities for United States Central Command.”

Gen. Robinson is now vice commander of Air Force Air Combat Command, which oversees the service’s fleet of bombers and fighters, and maintains readiness.

In the Pacific, she is replacing Gen. Herbert Carlisle, a career F-15 pilot who is assuming leadership of Air Combat Command at Langley Air Force Base in Virginia.
An Air Combat Command spokesman said career air battle managers, such as Gen. Robinson, “principally provide command and control in the battle space and aid combat aircraft in finding, identifying and engaging their targets. They provide pilots with a tactical picture, which increases their capability by enhancing situational awareness. ABMs also provide early warning for inbound enemy aircraft and direct friendly assets to intercept them.”

The Air Combat Command history office and Air Force representatives said all previous Air Force combatant commanders in active large theaters of operation — the Pacific, Europe and Central Command — have been combat pilots.

However, Gen. Robinson would not be the first female officer to command an Air Force component. From 2010 to 2012, Maj. Gen. Margaret Woodward, a career transport pilot, commanded the 17th Air Force, which was then the Air Force component for Africa Command. She led the air campaign against Libya in 2011. The 17th was disbanded in 2012. Today, a career F-15 pilot commands Air Forces Europe and Africa.

A career navigator heads U.S. Special Operations Command Air Forces. That component operates AC-130 gunships, drones, transports and other aircraft, but does not conduct air campaigns.

Gen. Robinson was nominated amid a diversity push by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and a general focus on women’s issues by the White House. Mr. Hagel has vowed to stamp out sexual assaults in the military and said he is open to studying whether transgender people are permitted to serve.

The military also is preparing to put women in direct land combat units. 

The Navy promoted its first woman this month to four-star rank: Adm. Michelle J. Howard, a surface warship commander, to vice chief of naval operations, the Navy’s second-ranking officer. The Air Force promoted its first woman to four-star rank in 2012, when Gen. Janet C. Wolfenbarger took over Air Force Materiel Command at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Ohio. The Army’s first female four-star general, Ann Elizabeth Dunwoody, has retired.

To observers, the twin moves to promote a woman to vice chief of naval operations and to place a woman in charge of a major combatant command Air Force means that female officers are destined to be elevated to the six-member Joint Chiefs of Staff, which comprises the four service chiefs, a chairman and a vice chairman.

Women make up 14.5 percent of the active force but only a small percentage of combat pilots, 21 years after the Pentagon lifted the ban on women in those jobs. Of 3,714 Air Force fighter and bomber pilots last year, 85 — or about 2 percent — were women at the rank of lieutenant colonel and below.

Time to Stand With the Jewish People




Gary Fouse
fousesquawk
http://garyfouse.blogspot.com


I believe strongly that we in the West should stand with Israel in its hour of danger. However, regardless of where you stand on the Israel-Palestinian conflict, decent people everywhere must recognize that the Jewish people are in danger-not just in Israel, but almost everywhere.

What we witnessed this past weekend in Paris was nothing short of a pogrom carried out mostly by France's Muslim inhabitants. Outraged over Gaza? It was merely a pretext to act out their ingrained Jew hatred.

Even in ever-progressive Los Angeles, a Palestinian woman was quoted Sunday as saying that Hitler had a reason to kill 6 million Jews. Why are we importing sentiments like that into our country?

But even if you argue that Israel is to blame for the conflict (which I profoundly disagree with), how does that condone attacking innocent Jews on the streets of European cities and attacking synagogues with Molotov cocktails?

In Malmo, Sweden, a city I have written about often, the ex-mayor essentially told the city's Jews that they were welcome to leave if they didn't like the way they were being treated on the streets by Malmo's ever-restive Muslim minority (about 25% of the population). Mayor Ilmar Reepalu was upset with the Jews in Malmo because they didn't condemn Israel-a nation Reepalu hates with a passion.

World events should never be an excuse to single out minorities identified with a certain nation. We have learned that from our mistaken relocation of Japanese-Americans from the West Coast during World War 2. To our credit, even after 9-11, mosques are not being attacked, and Muslims are not being assaulted on the streets as Jews are in Europe. Sure, there have been isolated incidents, but our legal system deals with them.

But one really wonders how strenuously European police pursue those who attack Jews.  In France, it is open season on them, reminiscent of Nazi Germany in the years running up to WW2. As a result, they are leaving countries like France and Sweden in droves, mostly to Israel. In an era when we are supposed to be sensitive to minorities, how can this disgraceful situation exist? In effect, anti-Semitism is once again fashionable-not just on the part of rednecks, white supremacists, and uneducated people, but among those who should know better. And rather than combating it, our universities have become a focal point for it.

No matter how strong Israel may be militarily and economically, I am not so optimistic that they will survive another ten years. The so-called international community is hostile to them even though they are the only democracy in the Middle East. Why?

Because they are intimidated by the screaming mobs and their political and diplomatic leaders, rich with oil and always willing to spill blood-our blood.

If Israel is ever overrun, watch the bloodbath ensue. Those who survive by getting out will become persecuted minorities once again. They are the inconvenient people because many think that if they go away we will all live in peace with Islamic world. Wrong. The Jews are the proverbial canary in the coal mine, and if they go, the rest of us are next on the list of the jihadists.

Look around the world. Muslims are in conflict with everyone including themselves. The people who were running amok and attacking Jews in Paris Sunday are the same people who are attacking Christians in the Middle East. What difference does it make if the alligator eats the Jews or the Christians first?

We should stand with the Jewish people because their enemy is our enemy and because it is simply the moral thing to do.

The Four Horsemen of the American Apocalypse

0000 horse


It is a sad day in America when all that can be written about is the sad state of American Apathy at a time when America needs Patriotism more than ever. The fact is America has been in a steep decline for more than a decade and there is no sign that the indifference we see from day to day is about to change.

What will it take to Wake up this Country?

Why is it that the American people always seem to wait until disaster strikes before they unite and rally for our national cause. I’m thinking of Pearl Harbor and 9/11 to site a couple of instances in which the American people came together in an effort to fight for our common causes of…

I have to admit that there have been times when I have been tempted to throw in the towel and walk away from this burning desire to see America restored to her former glory, but something deep within me fights to keep that flame burning.

WAKE UP AMERICA!

Don’t let that Flame Die
