Eight U.S. civilians in Afghanistan by homicide bomber

It did not take long for the democrats to cast blame for the near disaster on flight 253 to be thrown at the feet of Bush and Cheney. These far left whiners are no doubt the same ones that are still sniveling about the elections in 2000.

All this casting blame and whining will accomplish is to further polarize the country at the worst possible time. I have never seen this country so divided on so many issues. I mourn for those eight American lives lost as I do for each one that we hear about. What if George Bush had taken 4 days to respond to 9/11?

Think about that and how we would have rightfully reacted. Obama deserves no quarter, no cover. He is an embarrassment is every aspect of his presidency.

On Obama's Watch: 'Afghan Suicide Blast Kills Eight U.S. Civilians'
From American Power

The politicization of national security is really accelerating today, with Democrats blaming former President George W. Bush for the attempted bombing of Northwest 253. See, "Dems Blame Bush Admin For Terror Attempt," and "EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS GOOD NEWS FOR REPUBLICANS ..." And others from the previous administration are causing some aggressive prevarication on the left. See, "Dick Cheney needs a reminder - 9/11 on his watch."

But we're a year into the Obama administration. Time for blame is long past. Just today, a devastating suicide blast has killed at least eight in Afghanistan. At the New York Times, "Afghan Suicide Blast Kills Eight U.S. Civilians," and from CNN, "8 U.S. deaths at military base in Afghanistan" (via Memeorandum):

Eight Americans were killed in a suicide bombing Wednesday at a military base in eastern Afghanistan, according to a U.S. military official and a U.S. Embassy official.

A suicide bomber wearing an explosive vest attacked Forward Operating Base Chapman near the district of Khost in Khost province, said a third official, who asked not to be named.

The military official said the eight people were not from the military.

There were conflicting reports as to whether the bomber walked into the dining facility or the gym at the base.

Folks will recall President Obama's disastrous indecision on the surge for Afghanistan. While the administration dithered, we've seen an escalation of bombings in the main Afghan theater, and Pakistan has deteriorated to a near-collapsed state, with audacious Taliban incursions and bombings almost daily.

As I've reported all week, the Democratic-left is not serious on national security. If we need partisanship, it should be in coordinating pressure on the Carter-esque Obama national security team to act, and to act with vigor and dispatch. Eight Americans lost their lives today (as of this writing), and nearly 300 died on Christmas Day. Since then leftists have been ridiculing conservatives for "wingnuttia," but while these Democratic idiots yammer away, global jihad tightens its grip on civilization.

I'm almost embarrassed to be an American with these people in charge. But at least we know Obambi's almost certainly a one-term loser.

For those eight Americans who died http://americanpowerblog.blogspot.com/2009/12/on-obamas-watch-afghan-suicide-blast.html

Iranians Want Regime Change - WSJ.com

The people of Iran want a change. They are sick and tired of the mullahocracy that terrorized, tormented and ruled their country with an iron fist. The lack of action or 'progress' on Iran from Obama is a complete and abject failure of his Iranian policy. He gave the Iranians a long leash and they took every inch of it and more.War may be inevitable with Iran. Obamacan take full credit for that if it happens but he will just blame it on Bush and the Israelis.

Afshin Ellian: Iranians Want Regime Change - WSJ.com Thanks to China Confidential

By AFSHIN ELLIAN: Six months ago, Iranians went to the streets, chanting "Where is my vote?" This is how the Green Revolution started. The protesters now no longer merely seek democratic elections but want regime change. Their new slogans are: "Khamenei is a murderer and his rule is unjust," "Neither Gaza nor Lebanon, I only give my life for Iran," and "Independence, Freedom and an Iranian Republic." In other words, they demand a stop to Iran's support for terrorists in Palestine, Lebanon and Iraq; the separation of state and religion; and consider Ayatollah Ali Khamenei as public enemy No. 1.

By answering this summer's peaceful calls for democratic elections with violence, the Supreme Leader may have sealed his own fate. In June and July alone, more than 5,000 protestors were arrested and an unknown number of them killed. The use of such extreme violence at a time in which mass communication is no longer the monopoly of the government has led to the steady decline of the regime's credibility. The lies no longer work. Nobody in Iran believes the state media's propaganda that blames Israel and the U.K. for the death of Neda Agha Soltan, the young woman murdered by security forces, whose death throes captured on a phone camera shocked the world.

The revelations of rape and torture in the Kahrizak detention center by security officials who invoked the name of Allah and the Shiite Imam as they tormented their young victims particularly outraged Iranians. This type of rape also occurred in the 1980's, but back then no one would believe those stories. But this time it is different. The victims are speaking out and, as importantly, they have found prominent support in Mehdi Karroubi, a clergyman and former president of the parliament. Many ayatollahs not linked to the regime have voiced their horror as well. The unity which was forced between the religious cast and the regime has been torn apart by these events. As a result, the rulers' moral standing has suffered a blow from which it may not recover, for it is the religious authority of the ayatollahs which gives the theocratic regime its legitimacy.

TSA Clears Illegal Immigrants To Work At NY Airport | Judicial Watch

Posting this because I just read this. How stupid can the TSA be? After the latest Christmas day near terrorist bombing, the TSA is very stupid.

They want more than just our Fritos!
TSA Clears Illegal Immigrants To Work At NY Airport, Judicial Watch

In the latest of many shameful lapses, the federal agency in charge of securing the nation’s transportation system approved background checks for a dozen illegal immigrants working in sensitive areas of a busy U.S. airport.

The illegal aliens, from Central America and Mexico, worked in operational areas of Stewart International Airport, a 2,400-acre facility located about 60 miles north of New York City. Stewart is a major passenger airport for the state’s mid-Hudson region that also handles large quantities of cargo and serves as a military field.

The illegal aliens all had security badges approved by the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), the agency created after the 2001 terrorist attacks mainly to protect airlines. The TSA’s national background check failed to detect the fake Social Security numbers and other bogus documents provided by the illegal immigrants to obtain clearance.

So the embattled 43,000-member Homeland Security agency, which has received hundreds of millions of dollars from Congress to fulfill its mission, granted the undocumented aliens “trusted agent” security badges. This allowed them to work at an airport warehouse business and access key operational areas. An alert airport employee noticed the suspicious documents and reported the illegal aliens.

This sort of negligence is par for the course for the TSA, which has come under fire in recent years for leaving airplanes extremely vulnerable to terrorist attacks. Just last month the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General revealed that the TSA is failing to ensure the security of tens of thousands of cargo packages transported daily in the bellies of passenger planes, leaving aircraft at risk of a terrorist attack.

That probe also found that workers who handle the cargo had not received the required background checks or training, further adding to the security crisis. Previous Inspector General probes have over the years revealed similar problems in the TSA’s dismal air cargo security system and exposed dozens of security failures in other crucial areas nationwide.

Islamism and the United States; Viewpoint from a Muslim reformer

Tawfik Hamid makes some really good points in this article. It is not often we see something worthwhile
from a Muslim reformer. I do not agree with this
across the board by any means. It is worth the time
it takes to read as it offers an opinion from a Muslim perspective that is from a moderate Muslim, brave enough to speak out. That alone stands out for me.

Weakening Islamism is Vital to Improve US Image in the Muslim world
By Tawfik Hamid, A Full mug for  Act for America

In the December 1, 2009 issue of the WSJ Europe, Fouad Ajami - in an Op-Ed entitled "The Arabs Have Stopped Applauding Obama" - argued that President Obama's diplomatic approach to win the hearts and minds of the Muslim world has not been successful. Poll results have shown that unfavorable views of the US are as high as 82%, 69 %, and 70% in the Palestinian territories, Turkey, and Egypt respectively. In fact, the Op-Ed stated that unfavorable views of the US in Pakistan have risen from 63% in 2008 to 68% in 2009 according to a recent Pew survey.

In addition, after President Obama came to office in 2009, the number of home-grown Islamist terror plots inside the US has risen dramatically compared to the previous years. The Year of 2009 represents the highest level of domestic home-grown Islamic radicalism in the US since 2001.

We must question why President Obama's approach with the Muslim world has not succeeded yet in at least having a more positive effect in improving the US image in several Muslim countries or in decreasing the rate of home-grown Islamic radicalism on the home front. One of the main reasons for this lack of success is that US strategic communications with the Muslim world was largely based on the assumption that the problem of Islamic Radicalism and hatred to America is primarily because of the US foreign policy with the Muslim world and thus changing this policy will change the latter. This can only work if the main problem was in the US approach; however, if the main problem was in the Muslim world, such an approach cannot succeed as it will be like trying to change the keys to open a room while the problem is in the rusty lock! In the latter situation, changing the lock - or in other words changing the Muslim world itself - is crucial to solving the problem.

Improving the image of the US in the Muslim world before the proliferation of the phenomenon of Islamism was a very different task compared to trying to improve its image after the phenomenon has proliferated. While traditional approaches of diplomatic, economic and social engagement had the possibility of working with the earlier situation, non-traditional ways to weaken Islamism are now needed for today's situation.

Islamism, or the broad collection of movements to impose intolerant forms of Islamic teachings and practices, has made many in the Muslim world unable to be satisfied with any political system that does not implement Sharia law in some form or fashion. Any Un-Islamic system is seen as an enemy to Islam that must be opposed through violent or even non-violent means. Dr. Al-Zawaherri (second in command of Al-Queda) was clear is his offer for the US to convert to Islam in order to stop terrorism against it.

In addition, Islamism has made many in Muslim societies dream about regaining the superiority of the historical Islamic Caliphate over the world. This is clearly observed on web sites and comments by many Muslims in the Muslim world. In this case, it is hard for many Islamists to accept a country like the US that is viewed as denying this position to the Islamic world.

Furthermore, Islamism has aggravated criticism of the US as it advocates and supports values of freedom and liberty around the world that are seen by Islamists as "Un-Islamic" - particularly the values of freedom of religion, women's rights, gay rights, and more humane punishments for criminals (e.g., not stoning women for committing adultery). Some may argue that Muslims are still very interested to come to the US even if they see it as "Un-Islamic". The answer is simply that many Muslims are attracted by the economical factors rather than the values of freedom and liberty in the US and the West.

The above complex situation illustrates that the US may need to address the challenge of weakening the Islamism phenomenon first in order to improve its image in the Muslim world as this phenomenon plays an important role in creating hatred of America. In other words, removing the obstacle that impedes improving the US image in the Muslim world or at least significantly reducing it is fundamental to succeed in this diplomatic mission.

Trying to satisfy the Muslim world by changing the US will not be effective unless the US is ready to end its values of freedom and liberty and adopt an Islamic Sharia system.

The US administration must realize that the problem of poor views of this country in the Muslim world could actually be predominantly in the Muslim world and not in America. In such a case, changing the latter or the Muslim world rather than the US is fundamental to improving the image of the US among Muslims. This also can lead to the conclusion that the US may need to work on changing the perception of the Muslim world to its foreign policy rather than focusing on changing its foreign policy to win the hearts and minds of Muslims. Sophisticated psychological and behavioral modification methods may be needed to achieve this.

In this context, it is also important to raise the point that the Muslim world is in far greater need than the US to improve its image in the world as its image has been painted by terrorism and barbarism especially in the last few years.

In brief, no matter what the non-Islamic world does - short of submitting to the Islamic Sharia - the Islamists will never be satisfied completely. The US must either change itself to adopt an Islamic system to satisfy the Muslim world or alternatively assist in changing the latter. Weakening the Islamism phenomenon is vital to ultimately improve the image of the US in the Muslim world as Islamism is currently a - if not the - major obstacle to enhancing the US image among Muslims.

The fall of Europe and the rise of Islamopistan. We better be paying strict attention becuase our socialist president is not.

Europe is on the edge of a knife with little margin for error. There are so many Muslims in Europe now, from socialist driven immigration policies, that Muslims are taking over in many countries.

The demand is always the same; Convert to Islam and accept Shariah law or we will kill you. Accept our stone age ways of death and perverison or we will kill you. Want your daughter, wife to be subjected to Female Genital Mutilation? Let the Muslims in and see what comes with them, NOTHING good or beneficial.

Read "America Alone" by Mark Steyn. I would suggest reading it very soon. With passage of the Lisbon treaty and the Euro-Med pact, things in Europe are now bleaker than ever. And Geert Wilders is in jail because of the cowards in the government in the Netherland. Who is pushing this? Muslim politicians and islamosympathizers.

It can happen, and it already is.

Dooming Europe, by Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs:
Photo:Islamic equality for their women. Don't worry, they are only getting caned, not stoned, yet.

"The Europe as you know it from visiting, from your parents, or friends is on the verge of collapsing." Geert Wilders said this in a speech he made in the U.S. last year. He went on: "We are now witnessing profound changes that will forever alter Europe's destiny and might send the continent in what Ronald Reagan called 'a thousand years of darkness.'" This applies not just to Europe, but to America as well.

Been to Europe lately? Thought it was bad? You ain't seen nothing yet. The passage of the Lisbon Treaty, hailed by Barack Obama, nailed the coffin shut on national sovereignty in Europe. The people of Europe fought it, but they were overwhelmed by their political elites and the lack of American leadership in this age of our Marxist U.S. president.

Come January 1, 2010, a disastrous and suicidal pact called the Euro-Med Partnership (referring to Europe and the Mediterranean region) goes into effect with little fanfare or examination. It boggles the mind that such a consequential and seismic cultural shift could be mandated and put into play without so much as a murmur from the mainstream media.

Why should Americans care about this? The reason is that this global gobbledygook is coming to America, thanks to our globalist president.

They are very fond of Hitler. Surprised?
Don't be.

The European human rights group called Stop the Islamisation of Europe (SIOE) has been working tirelessly to expose the mass Muslim immigration plan of the Euro-Med Partnership. A statement on the SIOE website criticizes the secrecy of the process: "It was shocking to hear about the plans and at the same time knowing that Danish politicians and a [cowardly] Danish press -- who is otherwise proud to be critical -- has told nothing to the Danish people about this project which begins already in January next year. This also showed clearly at the conference. Only very few politicians showed up and no media. Those politicians who showed up had obviously never heard about the Euro-Mediterranean project.

The goal of the Euro-Mediterranean cooperation is to create a new Greater European Union encompassing both Europe and North Africa, with the Mediterranean Sea becoming a domestic Eurabian sea. The goal is to establish a "comprehensive political partnership," including a "free trade area and economic integration"; "considerably more money for the partners" (that is, more European money flowing into North Africa); and "cultural partnership" -- that is, importation of Islamic culture into post-Christian Europe. According to the SIOE, in the Euro-Med plan, "Europe is to be islamized. Democracy, Christianity, European culture and Europeans are to be driven out of Europe. 50 million North Africans from Moslem countries are to be imported into the EU."

Skeptical? It's already happening. The British Daily Express reported in October 2008 on "a controversial taxpayer-funded 'job centre'" that opened in Mali as "just the first step towards promoting 'free movement of people in Africa and the EU'. Brussels economists claim Britain and other EU states will 'need' 56 million immigrant workers between them by 2050 to make up for the 'demographic decline' due to falling birth rates and rising death rates across Europe." To offset this decline, a "blue card" system is to be created that will allow cardholders to travel freely within the European Union with full rights to work -- as well as the full right to collect welfare benefits.

A Muslim population from Africa moving freely into Europe threatens America. On Christmas Day, a Nigerian Muslim flew from Amsterdam to Detroit and tried to explode a bomb on the plane -- after he was allowed to board without a passport. The Euro-Med Partnership will make jihad attacks like this one all the easier.

And once in Europe, Muslims have already begun demanding special privileges and accommodations. IslamOnline reported on December 21 that "Muslims activists from 26 European countries have come together to launch the first rights council to enlighten European Muslims about their rights, monitor rising Islamophobia and defend Muslim rights in European courts of law." Ali Abu Shwaima, a Muslim leader in Italy, explained: "We think European human rights groups are not doing enough to defend the rights of Muslims. Therefore we thought that we need this new council, especially that all laws and constitutions in Europe respect freedom of religion and oppose all forms of discrimination and racism."

Ft Hood.
Do we want to be at greater risk from
Islamic attacks like this one or 9/11?

"Islamophobia," "discrimination," and "racism" are all terms that Muslims in Europe and America use to confuse people into thinking that the perpetrators of Islamic terrorism are the real victims. And it is working: Geert Wilders is going on trial in the Netherlands instead of all the Islamic hate sponsors he is fighting. It has to be this way to increase harmony between the Muslim and non-Muslim member-states of the Euro-Med Partnership.

This internationalism is already destroying what has made Europe free and great. And now Barack Obama wants to do the same thing to America.

2009 review of "blessings from Islam inside America." All acts by Muslims, Get it?

Here is a run down, a review of all the
'blessings" from Muslims and Islam we here
in the United States were subjected to.
This is a war, folks. This is an all out Islamic
assault on the very foundations and laws
this great country was built upon. I am not sure
if the list below is 100% complete but I do
trust Pamela 100%. If my father and Grandfather
were alive, they would state" This is not the
America we came to love, and be willing to die
for." I feel the same way. This country elected
BHO and now we are acting as if we have been
neutered of any huevos to batle back with. But
that's the Obama way. Appeasement, cowardice,
apologizing and de-arming our military and
intelligence agencies. Putting fools like Napolitano
in charge. Not to metion all the other libtarded
asshats Obama has placed in key positions. This
country is paying and will pay a much higher price
if we do not wake up soon.

Islam's War on America 2009: Jihad in Review
From Atlas Shrugs

It's time to step back, take a deep breath and review the war against the west, and specifically America in the year 2009. Islamic invasion of America: The 20 Point Plan

The stealth jihad is raging every day in our schools, our universities, our culture, in the courtroom and workplaces, but I thought it important to list the Islamic attacks against America this past year -- because the media won't. The colonization is full on.

Look at the number of violent attacks against this country in 2009 alone. And what have we done in retaliation? Taken our shoes off at airports. Confiscated our lotions and perfumes to TSA. Created an outreach division at the State department reporting directly to the Secretary of State. Started teaching a glossed over, mendacious narrative about Islam in public schools across the country. Instituted prayer times for devout Muslims in the workplace. The list towards surrender and dhimmitude goes on and on.

The refusal to address the ideology, the refusal to address the inspiration, the objective, the goals of the devout pursuing the Koranic goal of a universal caliphate ensures our defeat. On December 22, 2001, Richard Reid attempted to blow up a plane with his shoes. Nine years later we are still taking our shoes off while the jihadis have advanced their goals, Islamic supremacists have made incalculable inroads into our government institutions, culture, schools and workplaces. What have we done to combat the enemy within and without? After Bush lost his mojo in 2006, nothing, Worse, we regressed, and in a final act of mass confusion and denial, elected Barack Hussein. Unbelievable.

This is not my father's America.

Riqa Bary update: The attacks against Rifqa and her allies continues.

The Islamic bastards are pressing all they
can to have Rifqa cut off from the outside
world. I have posted part of this must read
article here. Wafa Sultan who grew up and
lived a Muslim women for many years has
somethings to say here about Rifqa and Islam.
Hope you will read this and the public must
know the truth about this and Islam.

Reading Rifqa's Mail: Outlawyered, Outfoxed, Outgunned
From Atlas Shrugs

There are further developments in the Rifqa Bary apostate case. Omar Tarazi, CAIR appointed hate sponsor, wants any discussion about religious teaching banned. That would include a discussion about Islam's rules for dealing with converts. What treachery. They want to exclude the evidence behind the very threat to Rifqa and to the millions of other former Muslims who have died trying to escape Islam. How can you hear this case without introducing Islam? It is all about Islam. Just look at what the Muslims have been doing to Rifqa since she converted out of Islam. This cannot stand.

A Plea from Wafa Sultan for Rifqa Bary Wafa Sultan, expert on Islam and the only American citizen forced to live in hiding in the US because of the death threats against her by devout Muslims, speaks out for Rifqa Bary. Author, writer, speaker, Sultan was born to a Sunni Muslim family in Baniyas, Syria and is a trained psychiatrist. Wafa should submit an analysis to Judge Gill. Who Better?

Unfortunately Rifqa Bary’s case highlights the danger of creeping Jihad in the Western world. This is not only because of the imminent danger the teenage girl may face right here in the US, had the court decided to have her return to her parents’ home, but also because of the mainstream media’s weak response to the severity of this case. Regrettably, the lack of interest by the media in covering her case comes at the expense of the public’s responsibility to learn the truth about Islam’s detrimental Sharia (Islamic Law) tenets.

I was born and raised as a Muslim in Syria. I practiced Islam for thirty years of my life. Now I am a known human rights activist striving to save our future Muslim generations from the impact of the violent, hateful Islamic doctrines embedded in the Sharia. My life is also threatened, not only by my own extended family, but by countless men who consider themselves devout Muslims. Under Sharia, if a Muslim leaves Islam or converts to another religion he / she is an “apostate,” to be killed. Under Sharia every Muslim has the right to kill such an apostate without any questions asked.

After hearing the story of Rifqa Bary I urge well meaning American citizens to take action and keep this innocent girl out of her family’s reach. There are all kinds of reasons to believe that she will be harmed both emotionally and physically, or worse—be killed—once her family has charge of her. Our Western court system must be educated on Islamic apostasy laws to understand Rifqa Bary’s predicament, and the plight of all those like her who choose to leave Islam.

I therefore implore our court authorities who are involved in this case: take notice and listen to individuals like myself. Keeping Rifqa protected and away from her family is the proper way to go both legally and morally.

Dr. Wafa Sultan

Reading personal mail is an outrage, a federal offense, a basic violation of privacy. Not if you are an apostate, an escapee from Islam -- then you have no rights, as terror organizations use American law to enforce shariah.

Further restrictions include "that all mail to Rifqa from people who aren't relatives will be reviewed by her guardian ad litem," the attorney appointed by the court to represent her interests, to "ensure that no inappropriate messages are forwarded to Ms. Bary." What's inappropriate? Is Merry Christmas inappropriate? CAIR seems to think so. They tried to ban and seize all her Christmas cards.

The Islamic machine wants further restrictions posed on her limited computer use and further restrictions on contact - no communication with the people she loves. It is so bad that Tarazi has Rifqa's lawyer reviewing her mail to censor things that she is legally privileged to hear from friends and associates. It cannot get any worse, for her lawyer to be maneuvered into something like that.

Special privileges for Somali Muslims at Minnesota high school sparks brawl.

Here is another example of how Muslims
always seem to solve any and all criticism
of Islam or Muslims. As mentioned,
This is Islamic Supremacism, at the high
school level. We do not need to be importing
Muslims into this country to resettle them.
They refuse to assimilatem to our laws and
culture. I have a big problem with that. We
have enough of our own problems without
doing this to ourselves with Muslims being
brought into this country for resettlement.
This program has receiced massive funding
and has been accelerated under the Obama

received much more in funding from our first

Imposing Sharia In America: Somali Muslims “out for blood” at Minnesota high school - Atlas Shrugs

This is sharia. Do not insult Islam. Non-believers forced to live in dhimmitude. This is not racial. This is Islamic supremacism. And this type of takbir is a terrible trend: Muslim Gangs Get Foothold in Minnesota

And the gay population is at risk as well: Muslims in Minnesota: "We Hate Gays" Video of Muslim youths shout abuse, throw rocks at gay man (homosexuality is punishable by death under shariah law. Gays are publicly hung in Islamic countries, which is why I never got queers for Palestine. They hate Jews more than they love life?)

Again I ask, why is the State department importing whole Muslim communities under "refugee resettlement programs"? The "diversity" emigration numbers are doubling, tripling some months.

This is not just in Minnesota. Look at Somali Muslims in Maine: Muslim Youths Wilding in Maine

Creeping Sharia has this:

Two versions of the same story with quite different details and manner of reporting. Either way, it’s just more of the same. Somali Muslims trying to enforce sharia law on non-Muslim students, and administrators kowtowing as usual, as are some media.

Principal Don Johnson said the problems began when two white students wrote papers in recent weeks that were “inflammatory and very disrespectful.” One student handed out copies of his paper to friends, while the other posted his on a class blog. Both were suspended from the school of 1,600 students — about 100 of whom are Somali.

Johnson said that before the second student returned to school Monday, the student sent text messages over the weekend to white and Somali students that were “unapologetic and in your face.” He then walked into a common area Monday where more than 20 Somali students were gathered and sat down. An altercation erupted that sent one of the white students to the hospital for observation.

“When two or three [Somali] students went over there to take things into their own hands, they had a gallery,” Johnson said. “It has triggered a kind of pandemonium mainly involving parents of Caucasian students, who pictured the worse — as if 200 students were fighting on the football field.”

It goes on like that for a while longer. Here’s a more detailed take on the situation:

Our Flemish correspondent VH has collected and translated the latest Dutch-language material related to Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab and the attempted bombing of Northwest Airlines Flight 253 on Christmas Day.

First, concerning the explosive Pentrite, an entry from Stan de Jong’s blog:

Pentrite, the favorite explosive of terrorists

by Percolator

Christmas Day, 2009. Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab, a Nigerian Muslim terrorist, a son of the wealthy Islamic Banker hajj Umaru Abdul Mutallab (who had sixteen children)[1], wanted to blow himself up together with almost three hundred other people on board an aircraft approaching Detroit airport, as seems to have been announced in an Al Qaeda video days before (December 21)[2]. For this attack Mutallab made use of the explosive pentrite (pentaerythritol tetranitrate, or PETN). This substance is one of the major components of the dreaded semtex.

The reason explosives such as pentrite and semtex are so popular with terrorists is that they are relatively easily available on the free market and have an enormous destructive power. Moreover, these explosives cannot be detected by metal detectors and X-ray equipment, which are used as standard equipment during check-in at airports.

Modern 3D body scanning devices would easily be able to detect explosives such as were attached to the leg of Abdul Mutallab. But yes, cost and privacy, eh. In the Netherlands this is decisive. The government does not care[3] about a few hundred lives when some euros can be saved. Fortunately there are bold types like Jasper Schuringa (and brave cabin crews)[4] aboard threatened aircraft. Otherwise there would currently much sadder news to report.

To give an impression of what exploding pentrite may cause, here a few images of amateur experiments with this material: 8 grams, 20 grams and 250 grams. [And here when mixed with Ammonium nitrate. The Muslim terrorist had 80 grams of PETN on him, while 50 grams would be enough blow away part of the hull and sections of the wiring of an aircraft: here a video: 90g mixed with 200g ANFO.]

That this attack was planned for Christmas also gives a nice glimpse into the twisted minds of the Muslim fundamentalists. The Western authorities always exert extreme efforts to imprint in the indigenous bourgeoisie a display of respect for Muslim festivals and customs. But reciprocity will not be a part of this for a while yet, I fear.

I am feeling the pain like most Americans. Of course the Obama's are FEEDING off of our pain.

So how many vacation did President Bush
and the first lady take that were like this?
For a former President who is still getting
blamed for all of America's ills(not by me)
at least the former President made this a
type of holiday a RARE occasion. How many
is this now for Obama and family? How about
those shoes. Imelda Marcos might even be
jealous of those puppies.

First Family to America: Everyone Must Sacrifice, Everyone Must Have Some Skin in the Game… We’ll Be In Hawaii

Monday, December 28, 2009, 10:51 PM

Jim Hoft

Back in January, before he signed his failed $787 billion stimulus bill into law, Barack Obama told America that everyone must sacrifice for the greater good. Everyone must have “some skin in the game.”

What he meant, of course, was that everyone would have to sacrifice to lift American out of the worst recession since the Great Depression except for Barack and Michelle Obama.

This week the Obamas are staying at an $8.9 million estate for an estimated $4000 per night.

Kristinn at Free Republic reported that First Lady Michelle was photographed last night in Hawaii wearing $635 per pair designer shoes by Maison Martin Margiela.

Picture of the approximate 2500 pairs of shoes of
Imelda Marcos. Come on Michelle, you can beat this!

The shoe style is called “Leather open toe flat pumps.” It features a “thin nude leather strap across the top of the toe.”

Remember: Everyone must sacrifice.

The First Family feels your pain.


Complete counter-revolution in Iran?

Israeli analysis of the Iranian protests.
This may be now a  complete counter
revolution we are witnessing inside Iran.
This will not be a quick or easy change
within the Iranian government. The will
of the Iranian people is being tested
beyond measure. How far will the mullah
controlled regime go in suppressing this
spreading counter-revolution remains to
be seen but from the past few months
it will be bloody and many lives will be lost.

DEBKAfile - Iran reels toward popular counter-revolution

DEBKAfile Exclusive Report

December 28, 2009

DEBKAfile's Iranian sources reveal that Mir Hossein Mousavi's nephew, Ali Habib, was not shot dead during a Tehran demonstration Sunday, Dec. 27, as reported, but waylaid and gunned down as he left his home. Fresh riots followed the disappearance of the body from the hospital Monday. The episode became even more ominous when Iran's security services chief Gen. Radan accused Mousavi of the murder to incite further violence. The opposition fears that the murder of Mousavi's nephew augurs physical liquidations of its leaders.

The current upsurge of violence across Iran is the most dangerous yet because for the first time demonstrators are turning round to attack security forces, the Revolutionary Guardsmen and Basijj paramilitaries.

DEBKAfile's Iranian sources report that the protesters are snatching their tormentors' nightsticks and other weapons as well as hurling firebombs.

To fend off the furious masses, whose numbers are swelling into tens of thousands and more, security forces are firing live bullets and tear gas in the crowds since Sunday, Dec. 27.

The death toll, admitted by the authorities as more than 15, is most likely in the 30-40 range; the number of injured is around 250 and detainees some 2,000, far more than the official figure of 300.

All these figures are hard to pin down because the violence has spread across Iran to places never before affected, such as Tabriz, Mashhad, Shiraz and Babol on the Caspian coast. Journalists are barred from covering the unrest.

Wherever dissent has sprung up, crowds of anti-government protesters have seized control of the streets and made government forces pull back. The most important flashpoint outside Tehran is Isfahan in central Iran, because it is the birthplace of the late Grand Ayatollah Ali Montazeri, the dissidents' spiritual mentor. His death a week ago spurred the current wave of unrest and gave the protesters the first spiritual icon for their struggle. Although dead and departed, Montazeri has provided the necessary rallying power missing from their sputtering rallies in the last six months.

Armed with the Montazeri image, the dissidents are not afraid to turn aggressively on the Guards and militiamen or hoist slogans that are no longer confined to Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, "the Dictator" whom they accuse of stealing the presidential election but, for the first time, openly defy the supposedly infallible, unelected spiritual leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

The revolutionary Islamic regime in Tehran thus faces its most dangerous threat, an opposition which can no longer be dismissed as foreign-inspired, but whose revolutionary Islamic Shiite credentials are impeccable and who claim greater legitimacy than the corruption-ridden, oppressive clique in office.

The gunning down of the nephew of Mir Hussein Mousavi, seen as an assassination, further stoked the fury raging in the streets of Tehran. Yet Moussavi stood aside as the movement's senior cleric, Ayatollah Mehdi Karroubi, used the opportunity to further question the regime's religious legitimacy by asking: "What has happened to this religious system that it orders the killing of innocent people during the holy day of Ashura?"

DEBKAfile's Iranian sources estimate that the outbreaks can no longer be designated "riots" but the precursor of a popular counter-revolution which will gain momentum as time goes by. It will be extremely bloody and may be protracted because the heads of the current regime will not give the opposition an easy ride to power or let go of their positions without a fight.

Monday, showing they mean business, security forces were ordered to storm the offices of Moussavi and the reformist ex-president Mohammed Khatami and arrest seven of their aides.

They also detained two prominent critics of the regime, according to the pro-opposition Rahesabz website: former prosecutor-general and leading dissident Ayatollah Mousavi Ardabili, former foreign minister Ebrahim Yazdi and Emadeddin Baghi, a human rights campaign and journalist.

Revolutionary Iran's places of detention are notorious hellholes of torture and death which some detainees do not survive.

As for the US and the Europeans, they are seeing proof of the fallaciousness of their policy to refrain from applying undue foreign pressure on Tehran for fear of rallying the Iranian people around the regime. In fact, the opposite is the case; turning the heat on the regime will encourage the Iranian masses to more assertively resist their government and shorten its life.

Russia and China, though jealous of their ties with the current regime in Tehran, will not have missed the large cracks forming in its fabric and have to start taking the new situation into account.


Homicide bomber takes out 30 in Karachi to help 'celebrate' Ashura.

Bomb kills 30 at holy march in Pakistan - Pakistan - msnbc.com

Outraged Shiites hurl stones at security forces after the bombing
People escort an injured person to an ambulance following a bomb blast in Shiite Muslim procession in Karachi, Pakistan on Monday.

The suicide bombing targeted a Shiite Muslim procession in Pakistan's largest city of Karachi.

KARACHI - A suicide bombing targeting a Shiite Muslim procession in Pakistan's largest city of Karachi killed 30 people and wounded dozens more Monday, as Shiites across the country marked the key holy day of Ashoura.

Violence broke out in the aftermath of the bombing, with shots fired into the air and outraged Shiites hurling stones at security forces who had been guarding the march for their failure to prevent it.

The bombing was the latest in a wave of violence to hit Pakistan since the army started taking on Islamist militants allied with al-Qaida and the Taliban, with terrorist strikes killing 500 people since October.

Karachi has largely been spared the Taliban-linked violence that has struck much of the rest of the country. But the city has been the scene of frequent sectarian, ethnic and political violence.

Extremists from the majority Sunni community regard Shiites as heretical, and the two groups have long engaged in tit-for-tat killings in Pakistan.

After Monday's blast, protesters set fire to a market, two other buildings and several vehicles, smashing shops as others at the procession attempted to stop them. Police and paramilitary troops fired into the air to disperse the crowd.

Television footage showed police cars and ambulances damaged, with windows smashed and doors and hoods ripped open.

Karachi Mayor Mustafa Kamal appealed for calm.

"I want to appeal to the people, to my brothers, my elders to stay calm. I am hearing people are clashing with police and doctors. Please do not do that. That is what terrorists are aiming at. They want to see this city again on fire," he said.

At the nearby Civil Hospital, relatives cried and beat their chests as the wounded lay on stretchers and beds.

"So far, according to information, more than 25 people have been (killed) and more than 50 are wounded," Interior Minister Rehman Malik said.

The minister said the attack was carried out by a suicide bomber who detonated his explosives at the start of the procession.

"These are people who are against the democracy, against our religion, against our Pakistan," he said.

Bomb disposal squad official Munir Sheikh said some 35 pounds of high explosive were used in the bombing.

'My mind stopped working'

Security has been tightened across Pakistan for Ashoura, which is the 10th day of the holy month of Muharram, a month of mourning commemorating the seventh-century death of the Prophet Muhammad's grandson. Muharram has often been marred by bombings and fighting between Pakistan's Sunni Muslim majority and its Shiite minority. Some parts of the Muslim world celebrated Ashoura on Sunday.

Malik, the Interior Minister, said he had appealed to the Shiite community to cancel processions for the next two days.

"That does not mean that we are trying to interfere in their religious affairs, but we are doing it for the sake of security and to save precious lives," he said.

Bomber kills 25 in Pakistan

Dec. 28: A suicide bomber kills at least 25 people and injures dozens during a holy procession in Pakistan. Msnbc.com's Dara Brown reports.

Live television footage of the procession showed the blast and smoke billowing from the scene. Ambulances rushed to and from the area.

"I fell down when bomb went off with a big bang. My mind stopped working," said Naseem Raza, a 26-year-old who had been in the procession. "Sometime later, I stood up. People were running. I saw walls stained with blood and splashed with human flesh. I saw bloodstained people lying here and there."

Karachi lawmaker Farooq Sattar condemned the attack as "purely an act of terrorism. It is an attempt to destroy peace of this commercial hub. It is a work of the enemies of Pakistan."

Third blast

Monday's suicide bombing was the third explosion in as many days to hit Karachi, although authorities attributed a blast which wounded 30 on Sunday to a buildup of gas in a sewage pipe.

Protests broke out after that blast too, with Shiites torching at least three vehicles.

On Saturday, another blast near a Shiite procession wounded 19 people. Authorities attributed that explosion to a firecracker. Abdul Rauf, an official with the bomb disposal squad in Karachi, said the firecracker blast had left a crater in the road.

Monday's attack came after a suicide bomber struck a Shiite procession Sunday in Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistan-controlled Kashmir, killing eight people and wounding another 80. That bombing was a rare sectarian attack in an area police say has little history of militant violence. The dead included three police officers, said police official Yasin Baig, adding that another 10 police were among the wounded.

He said it was the first time a suicide bomber attacked a Shiite gathering in the region.

Muslim militants have fought for decades to free Kashmir, which is split between India and Pakistan and claimed by both, from New Delhi's rule. But while Pakistani Kashmir has served as a base for anti-India insurgents to train and launch attacks, the region has largely been spared violence, with militants focusing on the Indian-controlled portion.


Two "Middle Eastern" men detained after acting suspiciously on flight to Phoenix, CAIR leaps into action

Here is more news on the two Muslims
removed from a U.S. Airways flight in
Phoenix. Note how quickly CAIR has
jumped into the fray to help spread
the fear of Islamophobia, profiling.
Where was CAIR in telling Muslims
to cooperate and be on their best

Two "Middle Eastern" men detained after acting suspiciously on flight to Phoenix, CAIR leaps into action

Full mug for Robert from Jihad watch

Since apparently nothing was found on these guys, this one has already become a pretext for CAIR cries of "Islamophobia." In CAIR's "American Muslim News Briefs" was an item entitled "AIR: Plane Incidents in Ariz., Mich. Raise Profiling Concerns." It noted that "in Arizona, two 'Middle Eastern' men were removed from a US Airways flight in Phoenix and questioned by the FBI after another passenger overheard the men speaking in a foreign language. The men were questioned and released." CAIR spokesman Ibrahim "Honest Ibe" Hooper says: "While everyone supports robust airline security measures [yeah, surrre -- ed.], racial and religious profiling are in fact counterproductive and can lead to a climate of insecurity and fear."

Here is what Honest Ibe could have and should have said: "Since everyone supports robust airline security measures, we call upon American Muslims to cooperate fully with airline security procedures and to accept being inconvenienced in the effort to prevent another Islamic jihad terror attack."

Feel free to crib from my work, Ibe.

"TSA: 2 passengers detained after flight to Phoenix," from AP, December 27 (thanks to all who sent this in):

PHOENIX - Two men thought to have been acting suspicious aboard a flight bound for Phoenix were detained and questioned by federal anti-terrorism authorities before they were released, the FBI said Sunday.

Transportation Security Administration officials said passengers aboard U.S. Airways Flight 192 from Orlando, Fla., on Saturday night reported that two men, described as Middle Eastern, were acting strangely and talking loudly to each other in a foreign language.

A nearby passenger also observed one of men watching what appeared to be footage of a suicide bombing, but was actually a scene from the 2007 movie "The Kingdom." The man also got up from his seat while the seat belt warning sign was still lit, FBI spokesman Manuel Johnson said.

The totality of those three occurrences led this passenger to believe this was suspicious," he said....

Jimmy the 'dhimmi' Carter tries to make amends for a life time of anti-semitism towards the Jews.

Carter has a son, I believe running for office
in a heavily Jewish district. So now he is trying
to apologize for his racist hatred of Jews. As
sammy states here it is not even a start. Those
Jewish votes are needed! Shades of what Obama
did. Perhaps Obama learned from Carter's example.

Carter has been voted 'Dhimmi of the Year'
at Jihad Watch and is always up near the
top when it comes to this 'award' or any
other nefarious titles that show Carter's
hatred of Israel and the Jews.

If you have not checked out 'Yid with Lid'
please do so. It is well worth your time.

American Thinker Blog: Jimmy Carter's Fake Apology
By Sammy Benoit of Yid with Lid

Jimmy Carter's Fake Apology

Sammy Benoit

Once the Camp David accords fell into Jimmy Carter's lap (Begin and Sadat brought Carter into the negotiations), the Peanut President turned against the Jews and the Jewish State.

"During the difficult negotiations between Egypt and Israel, Carter and his advisers tried to get Sadat to engage in a collusive scheme: They would encourage Sadat to make "deliberately exaggerated" demands. The White House would then intervene to "compel" Cairo to scale back its demands in exchange for Israeli concessions. Then-national security advisor Brzezinski explained that Washington would "apply maximum leverage on Israel to accommodate, by keeping the West Bank's political future on the table for future negotiations. That Carter risked possible Israeli-Egyptian peace in an effort to extract greater concessions from Begin underscores the tension in their relationship." Source

Carter has spent his post-Camp David life demonizing Israel and bashing the Jewish people and excusing Palestinian terrorism, the worst of which was seen in his 21st book, Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid. In this book Carter allows his anti-Israel ideology get in the way of facts. It contains serious errors of both commission and omission. To suit his goals, he manipulates information, redefines facts, and exaggerates conclusions. He describes Israelis as racists and war-mongering aggressors; Hamas as moderates forced to commits acts of terror, and American Jews as manipulators of American Foreign Policy.

Here's just one example his Jewish stereotyping from that book:

"There are constant and vehement political and media debates in Israel concerning its policies in the West Bank but because of powerful political, economic, and religious forces in the U.S., Israeli government decisions are rarely questioned or condemned, voices from Jerusalem dominate our media, and most American citizens are unaware of circumstances in the occupied territories."

In English, Carter is using that ugly old anti-Semitic stereotype that the Jews control the media, Congress, and the U.S. Foreign policy.

Now Carter wants to put that all behind him. He wants to apologize to the Jews for slandering Israel for the better part of thirty years.

Jimmy Carter asked the Jewish community for forgiveness for any stigma he may have caused Israel. In a letter released exclusively to JTA, the former US president sent a seasonal message wishing for peace between Israel and its neighbors, and concluded:

We must recognize Israel's achievements under difficult circumstances, even as we strive in a positive way to help Israel continue to improve its relations with its Arab populations, but we must not permit criticisms for improvement to stigmatize Israel. As I would have noted at Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, but which is appropriate at any time of the year, I offer an Al Het for any words or deeds of mine that may have done so."

"Al Het" refers to the Yom Kippur prayer asking God forgiveness for sins committed against Him. In Modern Hebrew it refers to any plea for forgiveness.

Carter has angered some US Jews in recent years with writings and statements that place the burden of peacemaking on Israel, that have likened Israel's settlement policies to apartheid, and that have blamed the pro-Israel lobby for inhibiting an evenhanded US foreign policy

Abe Foxman, Democratic Party activist and head of the ADL rushed to absolve Carter:

Abraham Foxman, the Anti-Defamation League's national director, welcomed the statement, calling it the "beginning of reconciliation."

"We welcome any statement from a significant individual such as a former president who asks for Al Het," Foxman said. "To what extent it is an epiphany, time will tell. There certainly is hurt which needs to be repaired."

Sorry Jimmy, Sorry Abe, I do not yet forgive Jimmy Carter. I know the Rabbis teach us that we do not curse bad people, we are supposed to pray that they see the error of their ways and do "teshuvah" which means to apologize and change the way they lead their lives. But Carter has a very long way to go in the "teshuvah" scale.

Jimmy Carter not offered a true apology. He says he is sorry that his statements have ostracized Israel; Carter is only concerned with the effect of his statements. He ignores the content of his statements, the exaggerating the truth supporting terrorism and use of Anti-Semitic stereotypes. Let's face it; we are talking about a man that hates the Jewish people so much that he rejected someone for employment at the US Holocaust Museum because his name sounded too Jewish.

"Former President Jimmy Carter once complained there were "too many Jews" on the government's Holocaust Memorial Council, Monroe Freedman, the council's former executive director, told WND in an exclusive interview.

Freedman, who served on the council during Carter's term as president, also revealed a noted Holocaust scholar who was a Presbyterian Christian was rejected from the council's board by Carter's office because the scholar's name "sounded too Jewish."

Freedman says he was tasked with creating a board for the council and with making recommendations to the White House on how best to memorialize the Holocaust.

He told WND he sent a memo to Carter's office containing recommendations for council board members.

He said his memo was returned with a note on the upper right hand corner that stated, "Too many Jews." The note, Freedman said, was written in Carter's handwriting and was initialed by Carter."

There is an old Hasidic tale which illustrates the effect of what Jimmy Carter has spent a generation doing, on the Jewish people.

A man went about the community telling malicious lies about the rabbi. Later, he realized the wrong he had done, and began to feel remorse. He went to the rabbi and begged his forgiveness, saying he would do anything he could to make amends. The rabbi told the man, "Take a feather pillow, cut it open, and scatter the feathers to the winds." The man thought this was a strange request, but it was a simple enough task, and he did it gladly. When he returned to tell the rabbi that he had scattered the feathers, the rabbi said, "Now, go and gather the feathers. Because you can no more make amends for the damage your words have done than you can recollect the feathers."

Mister Carter, first do TRUE teshuva apologize for all of your acts against the Jewish people, than go collect all of the "feathers," after that, well maybe, we can talk.
