British "Journalist" Ben White Speaks at UC-Irvine

Gary Fouse

On October 28, a guy named Ben White became the third British propagandist brought to speak at UC-Irvine by the campus Muslim Student Union, er, Alkalima-Muslim Students at UCI (their temporary name). The first two speakers who came were Yvonne Ridley and George Galloway (Two dopes). Now comes this kid Ben White to push his book, "Israeli Apartheid-A Beginner's Guide. (indeed). Also sponsoring the event was the newly-formed campus chapter of Students for Justice in Palestine. And just who are the Students for Justice Palestine, you ask?

You don't wanna know.

White is an anti-Israel activist who makes the university rounds giving a totally one-sided account of the Israel-Palestine conflict. This young man (he looks about 19) brought his power-point presentation to UCI in front of a crowd that was about 90% pro-Palestinian. He is a boring, pedantic speaker, who relies on his power points as an outline for his speech. With his boyish appearance, it looked like a high school valedictorian speech. After the first 4-5 minutes, I became so bored, I reached for my copy of Mad Magazine, which I had conveniently brought with me.

To summarize White's speech, it was a litany of all of Israel's "crimes" against the Palestinian people from the establishment of the state of Israel, to the settlements, to the arrests, to the blah blah blah, woof woof woof, quack quack quack. He quoted the exalted opinions of the UN, the EU, the world community, and everyone except the Sons of the Desert.

"At their annual convention today in Chicago, the Sons of the Desert condemned Israel's "illegal settlements."

Here is what he didn't talk about. Not one word about Palestinian terrorism. Not one word about the Arab wars launched against Israel. Not one word about suicide bombings. Not one word about rockets launched
into Israel by Hamas or Hizbollah.

And this guy calls himself a journalist?

Well, anyway, when the Q and A arrived, I jumped up to the microphone and asked him about an article he had written in February of 2009, which was entitled; "What about the Palestinians right of self-defense?" I read the following excerpt, which he had written. (You might want to read this sitting down.)

Your humble skunk at the garden party

“In fact, the Palestinians have indeed long been practitioners of civil disobedience, from the Revolt in 1936, to the First Intifada in the late 1980s, and right up to the present day. Palestinians are, in fact, proud of their tradition of nonviolent resistance." (White)

(Can't make this up, folks.)

I then recounted a series of events which I had dusted off from my life's memory bank. I began with the sky-jackings of the late 1960s-70s. I mentioned the Munich Olympic massacre of 1972. I mentioned the terror attacks in Europe, such as the massacres at Vienna and Rome airports in the 1980s. I mentioned the Achille Lauro attack, in which an elderly Jewish American named Leon Klinghofer was thrown overboard in his wheelchair. I mentioned the suicide bombings, the blowing up of buses and pizza parlors and the rocket attacks into Israel. I also brought up the inconvenient fact that one of the main figures in the "non-violent" 1936 (-1939) Revolt in Palestine was none other than the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin-al Husseini, who fled Jerusalem in 1937 and wound up in Berlin during WW II as a guest of Hitler, from where he made radio broadcasts to the Middle East urging his listeners to drive out the Jews. He also made his own contribution to the war effort by helping organize a Bosnian SS division, which participated in the Holocaust. I concluded by asking him to explain all that in the face of his claims of Palestinian non-violence. (I will be posting a video of this exchange shortly.)

White replied by stating that this was a typical (Alan) Dershowitz tactic. He then went on to vaguely imply that some people had fabricated the famous photos of the Grand Mufti (meeting Hitler in Berlin and reviewing Bosnian SS troops during WW II). At that point, he returned to his original talking points without even coming close to addressing the question about his claims of Palestinian non-violence as opposed to documented terror incidents. He could not challenge the facts of those incidents.

(For you UC Santa Cruz Community Studies majors, the Grand Mufti is the one on the left.)

Grand Mufti reviewing Bosnian Waffen SS troops 1941

Yet, the audience applauded his response. They applauded every response he made as he skirted hostile questions. He could have said the moon was made of Limburger cheese and the audience would have applauded.

About 9-10 people came up to ask questions. A few were Jewish defenders of Israel. I think a few members of the Jewish campus group, Anteaters for Israel, were there. I had hoped maybe the Orange County Jewish Federation or Hillel might come to make their "voices" heard, but I guess they still figure they have "won the war" with the MSU "suspension". They don't want to hear the bad news that nothing has changed at UCI. Interestingly, with one final questioner waiting to ask a question, the moderator brought the Q and A and the event to a close-as the final questioner stood there dumb-founded. He happened to be the president of Anteaters for Israel. Coincidence? We don't think so.

This was a typical anti-Israel event, so commonly held on university campuses. Only a handful of audience members were pro-Israel and the speaker gave a totally one-sided presentation with no mention of the 800 pound elephants standing in the back of the room-Palestinian terrorism and the right of Israel to defend herself. This is what passes for journalism-and education on university campuses. All in all, White is.......what's the word?

An arrogant little twit.

Democrats Continue to Cover Up New Black Panther Partry Voting Scandal

Gary Fouse

Here's another chapter to the on-going New Black Panther Party voting scandal and the DOJ cover-up from the Wahington Post.


Even the liberal Wahington Post sees this for what it is. Why couldn't the Democrat member of the commission simply cast his vote? How frustrating it must be to be a member of this commission and deal with the stonewalling and the cover up by the DOJ under Eric Holder-aided by the Democrats.

Democratocracy in Action in Florida

Gary Fouse

The Democratic apparatus is at it again. Just days after we learned that early voters in Nevada found their ballots pre-programmed for Harry Reid, we learn that the party's cloak and dagger guy, former President Bill Clinton, was dispatched to Florida to convince Democratic candidate Kendrick Meek to drop out of the race in favor of independent candidate Charlie Crist, who is governor.

This is the second time we know of that Clinton has secretly tried to get a Democratic candidate to drop out of a senate race. The first was Joe Sestak.
Last night on Fox's Greta Van Susteren show, Crist was interviewed and openly admitted to the effort to convince Meek to drop out. (Meek is far back in the polls and the intent is to defeat Republican conservative Marco Rubio, who is leading.) Crist also admitted to discussing the matter with White House officials-whom he refused to name.

Meek, meanwhile, is denying word that he twice promised Clinton he would drop out in favor of Crist. And what is Clinton saying? Has anybody seen him lately?

This is also reminiscient of the time a few years ago when Bob Toricelli dropped out of the New Jersey Senata race very late under Democratic pressure due to the fact that he was mired in scandal and way down in the polls. Frank Lautenberg replaced him and subsequently won.

I wonder how Florida voters feel about this sleazy move. Furthermore, I thought the Democrats were the party of the minorities (Meek is African-American). Why are the Democrats stooping so low in order to defeat Rubio? Is it because they cannot stand to see a successful, conservative Republican Hispanic sitting in Congress?

What makes a dhimmi?

"What Makes Johnny Dhimmi Run Away?", an article on Sultan Knish, provides a clearcut, uncompromising description of the personality traits, and thinking modes of dhimmis in positions of power, be they politicians, generals, beaurocrats, or businessmen.

A few excerpts:
"A closer look at the Dhimmi leadership will yield some surprises. These leaders of the Dhimmi class and of our own nations and cultural centers are occasionally left wing, sometimes liberal leaning but generally moderate. While their views may seem liberal to us, that's only because they lack any real views of their own. As the left's culture war has continued to push the center further and further to the left, views that were once liberal, become mainstream. And Johnny Dhimmi is a creature of the center, a true moderate in the sense that he moves with the herd of public opinion while pretending to be its shepherd. As a faithful worshiper of the status quo, Johnny Dhimmi is quick to adapt to whatever the dominant view appears to be."

"Johnny Dhimmi does not have any ideas of his own but he excels at borrowing other people's ideas, breaking them down to the simplest common denominator and using them as a repetitive slogan. You couldn't argue with Johnny Dhimmi because he spends very little time thinking about things and ideas need to be conveyed to him in bite size form. At the same time Johnny Dhimmi is suspicious of excessively simple ideas, such as national self-defense or a clash of civilizations, as a natural born manager, he prefers an answer that will smooth out the bumps and keep business moving. While he is not above exploiting patriotic symbols or rhetoric and even believes them at the time, he never takes them too seriously, they are a costume he puts on and takes off when appropriate."

"Johnny Dhimmi has learned throughout his career that the safest approach is the mildest. He is capable of bold rhetoric and action when needed, he is not emotionless or a robot, but he is naturally static and has trouble coping with new ideas. He prefers accommodation to conflict and while he will fight politically for what he believes in, it will only be until he realizes that it is hopeless and then he will look for a way out. It may however take time for this understanding to sink in, often making him the last man on the Titanic to notice the big iceberg."

"His response to the rise of Islamic terror is to look for easy solutions that work for everyone. His initial response is to ignore it. His second response is to accommodate the moderates while banishing the extremists. When this fails, he stalls and looks to someone else for answers. Finally he begins negotiating the terms of surrender for his country in order to get the best terms and limit the damage."

"The destructive capacity of Johnny Dhimmi lies in his sheer uselessness and lack of mental agility and ability. Devoid of any spine, he folds easily. Things have come easy to him in life and his entire professional career has been devoted to convincing people to do what he thinks is best. And what he thinks is best, is what will keep business going."

"Johnny Dhimmi is loyal, but not to a country. His first and foremost interest is not the nation, but that corner of it which consists of his friends' business interests. He is strongly loyal when it comes to his friends and what his friends want is for international trade to keep running smoothly."

What Makes Johnny Dhimmi Run Away?

The problem with Israel's war mentality

Disclaimer: this piece of criticism is directed at the thought patterns of the Israeli establishment, media, various peace advocates, and those who buy into their propaganda. In no way does it claim that all Israelis share the same flaw, nor does it target those brave men and women, who spend days and nights in defending Israel from the various threats that seek to devour it.

Having recently watched a series about American history in the last four centuries, one trait that often got emphasized was perseverance: the ability to carry on with a daunting task despite hardships, and losses. From the great engineering projects, like the hover dam, the Erie canal, and the California Aqueduct, through the colonization of the great plains, to the taking of Omaha beach, and the stand against Communism, Americans did not stop trying just because they failed on the first try.

Israeli mentality, on the other hand, suffers from a self-destructive syndrome known as 'Zbeng vegamarnu' ("one blow and it's over", in rough translation). While very proud of the efforts they take to protect the lives of their soldiers (after sending them into unnecessary high-risk urban combat), once a battle plan goes awry, and people do get killed, the whole operation it is quickly labelled as a complete failure, and a catastrophe of immeasurable proportions.
For the sake of brevity, I will not mention individual cases, but whenever there was a casualty of war during operation "Cast Lead" in Gaza, and the last Lebanese war, one could count on grim titles appearing on newspaper fronts, as well as lengthy debates on television and radio shows.
Whereas other nations strengthen their resolve in the face of adversity, or simply acknowledge the simple fact that people die in wars, Israelis see casualties as a sign of deep failure, and a reason to proclaim defeat.
This line of thought is as much the result of the unrealistic expectations, set by the magnificent victory of the six-days-war (as one satirical piece has put it recently: the Yom Kippur war was a terrible defeat, because we won in nineteen days, as opposed to the customary six), as well as the indulgent fantasy that wars can somehow be fought without casualties (preferably to both sides, so as not to offend anyone).

The enemy is well aware of this attitude, and is easily emboldened by it, because groups like Hamas and Hezbollah know all they have to do is kill enough Israeli soldiers in one fight (5+ will usually do the trick), to get the Israeli public fretting about the disaster. Immediately, worried women will demand that their soft children will be sent home from the front, leftist extremist will cite the horrors brought upon by Israel's colonialist, imperialist, and pure-evilist tendencies, and the media will inflate every sad personal story to absolutely ridiculous proportions.
It is no wonder, therefore, that both Hezbollah, and Hamas, claimed victory after the recent conflicts. What's worse - they were right, but not for the reasons that Israeli defeatist love to bring.

The reason they were right is that Israel does not have the luxury of ending a conflict whenever it pleases. The moment it goes to fight an Islamic, or Arab enemy, the only condition for peace should be the shameful surrender of that enemy. A voluntary ceasefire at any earlier stage simply invites the next war, as the recent decades have shown time and again.
Case in point, the war on Gaza could've only ended in Israel's favor had the leadership of Hamas publicly admitted defeat. The moment the IDF unilaterally withdrew from the strip, the clock to the next violent conflict started ticking, and you can quote me on that. The other side, on the other hand, defined victory as simply surviving, and there is no doubt it has accomplished that task.
Moreover, Hamas' local victory against Israel was observed by Muslims all over the world, encouraging them to carry on their global jihad. Thus, by sparing Gazans from paying the price of their own choices, my country has committed a different crime against humanity.

To create peace, Israel should not grovel before inferior Arab thugs like Abu-Abbas, but instead squash them mercilessly. That will make the surrounding Arab countries respect it, out of fear - the only preserver of peace in the Middle East. Any attitude that pretends otherwise, is an irresponsible self-indulgence that leads to more bloodshed.

Teenage girls executed in Somalia for 'spying.'

Completely and totally disgusting and shows how evil islam and sharia law is, not can be, already is. Last post for the night is my hand is done in and tomorrow, or today will be very chaotic at work. From Examiner.com.

Al-Shabaab executes teenaged girls in Somalia
By Jim Kouri

Al-Shabaab, a radical Islamic terrorist organization affiliated with al-Qaeda, announced that they publicly executed two teenage girls whom they accused of being spies for the Somali government.

The terrorists, who espouse Shariah law, are responsible for the deaths of government officials, police officers and civilians they deem their enemies.

In a statement released by a ranking member of Al-Shabaab, the group claims that "those two girls were evil and they were spies for the enemy, but the mujahedeen caught them and after investigation, they admitted their crime, so they have been executed."

Only one of the teenagers was identified by name in a press release -- 16-year old Ayan Mohamed Jama.

A U.S. intelligence analyst tells the Law Enforcement Examiner that the teens were blindfolded, tied to a tree, and shot by a firing squad in front of men, women and children in the town of Beledweyne.

Friends and neighborhood of the teenaged girls denied they were spies or in any way a threat to the terrorists who run a de facto local government.

There has been a fierce battle between Somali government forces and Al-Shabaab with the waging an all-out war against Somalia's government in an effort to impose a stricter form of Islamic law, or Shariah. The group's reign of terror includes public beheadings and stonings.

In one terrorist attack in Mogadishu, Al-Shabaab terrorists killed and injured innocent civilians at a graduation ceremony for Somali medical students. The attack also resulted in the deaths of the Ministers of Health, Higher Education and Education of the Somali Transitional Federal Government.

"This was a criminal attack on people dedicated to building a peaceful, stable and prosperous future for the people of Somalia," United Nations officials said in their condemnation statement.

"While the UN should be expected to condemn such barbarism, calling it a 'criminal act' is wrongheaded and treats an act of war as if it were a bank robbery," said former Marine intelligence officer and New York police detective Sid Francks.

Unfortunately, Somalia has not had even a facsimile of a central government since 1991, and its police and military are fearful when confronted with groups such as Al-Shabaab.

Also, Somalia's police spokesman, Dhexe Abdullahi Hassan is quoted as saying that al-Qaeda was the prime suspect in a smuggling operation involving counterfeit notes after international financial institutions starved the terrorist group of all money supplies, according to a report obtained by the National Association of Chiefs of Police's Terrorism Committee

Keeping the peace with the 57 islamic states of islam: obama will visit mosque but...

In another bow, as low as one can get to islam and muslims, obama the mullah in the White House, the first muslim potus will visit a jihaidst terrorist recruitment site on his upcoming visit to Indonesia. Think the Sikhs are pleased with this move? Not even close! The White House is claiming the mullah in the White House does not have time to pay equal respects to a Sikh temple or holy site. Not enough time? What a poor and pathetic excuse. Like people are going to buy this? He might as well try telling the truth but no, obama must resort to falling back on his arrogance and ignorance. Once again, he is proving what a liar he is. He is 100% muslim and 100% an islamist of the worst type. From Politico.com.

Oil lamps lit and put in place by devotees glow in the foreground at the Golden Temple, a Sikh holy shrine in Amritsar, India.
Golden Temple in Amritsar, India

Sikhs say President Obama bent to 'fears'

American Sikhs aren’t buying the White House’s explanation that President Barack Obama is skipping a Sikh holy site in India during his upcoming Asia trip because he doesn’t have time.

The New York Times reported last week that Obama will not visit the Golden Temple in Amritsar because he would be required to cover his head when he entered it, and pictures of him could perpetuate the false belief that he is a Muslim.

On Wednesday, the White House confirmed Obama wouldn’t be going. Ben Rhodes, a deputy national security adviser, told reporters simply that India is a “big country” and that “we can never do as many events as we’d like to do.”

That didn’t go over too well with Sikhs, who have since the Sept. 11 attacks fought the perception in the United States that they are Muslims.

"I’m not really buying it," Sapreet Kaur, the executive director of the Sikh Coalition, said in a statement. "I think the administration has been struggling with the false accusation that the president is Muslim. It is not out of the realm of possibility that these fears drove the cancellation. The administration is going to have to figure out how to make this up to the Sikh American community and the Sikh community worldwide."

“If somebody doesn’t want to come, then they should not come for the right reasons and not hide behind these sort of excuses,” said Jasjit Singh, the associate executive director of the Sikh American Legal Defense and Education Fund. “He’s playing the game, and that’s what’s unfortunate.”

The possibility that Obama would visit the temple gave hope to American Sikhs that they would be recognized in a significant way for the first time in nearly a decade — if only for a day.

“It would have been a huge moment, a seminal moment, for President Obama to come there and kind of show to the world that this is a vibrant religious minority here,” said Hansdeep Singh, an attorney for United Sikhs. “It is disappointing.”

An official familiar with the visit said the discussion about Obama’s itinerary started six months ago, but that changes can be made for any number of reasons.

Obama will visit India after the midterm elections for three full days of events, including a town hall with students, a visit to Gandhi’s tomb, an address to parliament and a dinner with Manmohan Singh, the first Sikh to be India’s prime minister.

Britain's Queen Elizabeth and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper went to the Golden Temple when they visited India. Jasjit Singh noted that Harper simply wore a handkerchief on his head to meet the religious requirement.

“It’s a significant place, and I think that this is really him not really upholding his campaign promise, which was to rise above this dialogue of fear, which is dividing the country effectively,” Singh said of Obama. “By canceling his visit, what does he do? He’s emboldening those who are seeking to divide us.”

While Sikhs say they’re “more than disappointed” Obama’s avoiding the temple, there are other holy places he could visit in Pakistan next year, including the site where the founder of Sikhism, Guru Nanak, was born.

Or he could still visit other Gurdwaras – the Sikh temples – in New Delhi that are “in line” with his schedule, Kaur said. Even a brief visit, she said, would mean something to Sikhs who had looked forward to him bringing their religion to the forefront.

Hansdeep Singh said the United Sikhs would “continue to push” Obama to visit Sikh shrines in the United States and abroad. "We want to have a continuing dialogue with the White House,” he said.

Statistical Islam: Part three of nine; From Political Islam

Statistical Islam, Part 3 of 9
By Bill Warner

Case 2: The Kafir

There is a second division that overwhelms the reader of the historical Koran. A majority of the text concerns the Kafir (unbeliever). It is not about being a Muslim, but about the Kafir. A note: most Koran translations use the word "unbeliever" instead of Kafir, but Kafir is the actual Arabic word.

This term is so important and so unknown that the meaning of Kafir must be defined. The original meaning of the word is one who covers or conceals the known truth. A Kafir knows that the Koran is true, but denies it. The Koran says that the Kafir may be deceived, plotted against, hated, enslaved, mocked, tortured and worse. The word is usually translated as "unbeliever" but this translation is wrong. The word "unbeliever" is logically and emotionally neutral, whereas, Kafir is the most abusive, prejudiced and hateful word in any language.

There are many religious names for Kafirs: polytheists, idolaters, People of the Book (Christians and Jews), atheists, agnostics, and pagans. Kafir covers them all, because no matter what the religious name is, they can all be treated the same. What Mohammed said and did to polytheists can be done to any other category of Kafir.

Islam devotes a great amount of energy to the Kafir. Not only is the majority (64%) of the Koran devoted to the Kafir, but also nearly all of the Sira (81%) deals with Mohammed's struggle with them. The Hadith (Traditions) devotes 32% of the text to Kafirs.

Richard Warman Sues Blazingcatfur For Linking To "Far Right" Mark Steyn

About 18 months ago everybody's favourite Ex-Canadian Human Rights Commission employee Richard Warman launched one of his many, as in very many, SLAPP suits against yours truly for, among other dastardly deeds, linking to the "far-right web site http://www.steynonline.com/". Sheesh everybody knows Mark Steyn is controversial.

It gets better. I'm also being sued for linking to a web site while specifically referring to "the allegations" against Richard Warman. But what else would you expect from Warman, a man so tone deaf he actually believed he could win the support of both the CJC and B'nai Brith in a hate crime complaint against the JDL, who dared offend him by showing the Geert Wilders film "Fitna".

crime of calling him a "Bully". We all know what this SLAPP suit is really all about. Warman is using every lawfare tactic he can to prevent a discussion in the public interest of Section 13 (1) and the CHRC. A discussion in which he must feature prominently.

Warman is suing me for $500,000.00 Dollars. A ridiculous amount for an equally ridiculous lawsuit. Nonetheless even nuisance suits such as this must be defended against. To date legal fees have run me about 10K. I've covered that from my own pocket. I am now asking for your help. I know times are hard for many of us but if every reader who visited daily were to contribute 5 or 10 dollars then that would go a long way to helping all of us out.

This is your fight too, well except for the lawyer stuff anyway;)

Is UC Berkeley Putting its Imprimatur on an Anti-Israel Event?

Gary Fouse

Hat tip to OC Independent Task Force on Anti-Semitism and Tammi Benjamin

On 10-26-10, another one of those anti-Israel bashes went on at UC Beserkley. One of the sponsors was Students for Justice in Palestine. Most troublesome, however, is the participation of a university department, the Muslim Identities and Cultures Working Group, under Prof. Anthony Cascardi, director of the Townsend Center for Humanities. The title of the event was, "What can American academia do to realize justice for Palestinians? Gee, I wonder whose side they favor. I imagine Prof. Anthony Gutiererz was probably there unless he was busy heckling Jewish students who protest against swastikas on UCB bathroom walls.


So let me get this straight; If a university department puts on a forum, seminar or whatever you want to call it, and everything and everyone involved takes only one position, is that stating that UC Berserkley's official position is against Israel in this conflict? That's the way I look at it. I thought a university was supposed to excpose students to all points of view. Well, apparently not if you have a pro-Israel point of view.

This reminds me of that Whtiher the Levant farce that was put on at UC-Irvine back in January of 2009. Every speaker, every professor involved was against Israel. When I spoke up in Israel's defense, I was jeered by the audience. That seminar had partial sponsorship of the UCI Middle East Studies Initiative.

And what a lame response from the university to the protest letter. This is not education; it is indoctrination.

* I am working on getting Prof. Cascardi's letter posted here.

Elderly Christian couple beaten in Pakistan by muslims

I had to post this article and will leave out any commentary as typing sucks right now. My doctor knows me all too well. From Compass Direct News.

Pakistani Muslims Beat Elderly Christian Couple Unconscious

SARGODHA, Pakistan, October 21 (CDN)An 80-year-old Christian in southern Punjab Province said Muslims beat him and his 75-year-old wife, breaking his arms and legs and her skull, because he refused a prostitute they had offered him.

From his hospital bed in Vehari, Emmanuel Masih told Compass by telephone that two powerful Muslim land owners in the area, brothers Muhammad Malik Jutt and Muhammad Khaliq Jutt, accompanied by two other unidentified men, brought a prostitute to his house on Oct. 8. Targeting him as a Christian on the premise that he would not have the social status to fight back legally, the men ordered him to have sex with the woman at his residence in village 489-EB, he said.

“I turned down the order of the Muslim land owners, which provoked the ire of those four Muslim men,” Masih said in a frail voice. District Headquarters Hospital (DHQ) Vehari officials confirmed that he suffered broken hip, arm and leg bones in the subsequent attack.

His wife, Inayatan Bibi, said she was cleaning the courtyard of her home when she heard the four furious men brutally striking Masih in her house.

“I tried to intervene to stop them and pleaded for mercy, and they also thrashed me with clubs and small pieces of iron rods,” she said by telephone.

The couple was initially rushed to Tehsil Headquarters Hospital Burewala in critical condition, but doctors there turned them away at the behest of the Jutt brothers, according to the couple’s attorney, Rani Berkat. Burewala hospital officials confirmed the denial of medical care.

Taken to the hospital in Vehari, Inayatan Bibi was treated for a fractured skull. The beatings had left both her and her husband unconscious.

Berkat said the Muslim assailants initially intimidated Fateh Shah police into refraining from filing charges against them. After intervention by Berkat and Albert Patras, director of human rights group Social Environment Protection, police reluctantly registered a case against the Jutt brothers and two unidentified accomplices for attempted murder and “assisting to devise a crime.” The First Information Report (FIR) number is 281/10.

Station House Officer Mirza Muhammad Jamil of the Fateh Shah police station declined to speak with Compass about the case. Berkat said Jamil told her that the suspects would be apprehended and that justice would be served.

Berkat added, however, that police appeared to be taking little action on the case, and that therefore she had filed an application in the Vehari District and Sessions Court for a judge to direct Fateh Shah police to add charges of ransacking to the FIR.

Doctors at DHQ Vehari said the couple’s lives were no longer in danger, but that they would be kept under observation.

Here is the latest on my right hand problem and why posts will be limited for a few days. I saw my PC physician today and after x-rays he made me splint my right hand and wrist. X-rays showed several possible fractures but he was not 100% sure. Knowing me and not wanting to take any chances(I am not and never will be a compliant patient!), he insisted on the splint until he gets the report from the radiologist. If there are fractures then my hand will have to be in a cast. At the very least these are cracks. Explains why my hand and wrist have had swelling and hurt. Plus it is very hard to type. So, I will take it easy, sort of for a bit. I hate to but
I have everybody ganging up on me. The strange part of this is I do not remember doing anything to my hand to have caused this. Extremely irritating!!

China's one child policy is state sponsored murder

This is state sponsored murder and I cannot call it anything else except shocking and disgusting. Just like with islam and how women are treated, where are all the feminists? They should be out there really causing all hell to break loose over this and islam, yet they remain silent. I could go on about this all night but it is time to ice my hand and call it good for tonight. This is from CNSNEWS.COM.

The Reality of China’s One-Child Policy: A Forced Abortion at Eight Months

By Patrick Goodenough

CNSNews.com) – Critics of Beijing’s “one-child policy” say a televised clip showing a young mother enduring a forced abortion at eight months’ gestation calls for a worldwide response.

According to the report by al-Jazeera television, heavily pregnant Xiao Ai Ying was forced to undergo an abortion at a hospital in the southeastern coastal city of Xiamen because she and her husband, Luo Yan Qua, already have their permitted one child – a 10-year-old daughter.

“There were many men surrounding my wife,” Luo told a reporter outside. “They held her arms behind her back, pushed her head against the wall, kicked her stomach and I don’t know if they were trying to give her a miscarriage.”

The report said Xiao’s unborn baby was then given a lethal injection. She was filmed waiting to deliver the dead child.

“I have felt the baby moving round and round in my belly,” Xiao said. “Can you imagine how I feel now?”

Outside, Luo pondered the effect of the tragedy on their existing child.

“She’s been feeling my wife’s belly as it has grown larger and larger over the months,” he said. “My daughter says, ‘I will have a little brother soon.’ I don’t know how I can possibly explain to her what has happened.”

Introduced in the late 1970s, China’s birth limitation policy generally restricts couples to having one child. Exceptions are made in certain cases, including one that allows ethnic minorities or couples living in rural areas to have a second child if their firstborn is a girl.

The policy is enforced through large fines – known euphemistically as “social compensation fees” – threats of job loss or demotion and other punishments and disincentives. But human rights researchers have also recorded the use of even more troubling measures, including involuntary sterilization and forced abortion.

China’s communist government says the policy has been an essential factor in the country’s economic development, having successfully “prevented” 400 million births since 1979.

Reggie Littlejohn, president of Women’s Rights Without Frontiers and a leading critic of China’s one-child policy, called the video clip “heartbreaking.”

“This video is further evidence that China’s coercive family planning practices cause more violence against women than any other official policy on earth,” she said Thursday.

“Thousands of women are being dragged out of their homes, thrown into ‘family planning’ jail cells, strapped down to tables and forced to abort pregnancies that they want, even up to the ninth month,” she added. “Forced abortion and forced sterilization are China’s war on women.”

‘A baby brother she will never meet’

Chai Ling, a U.S.-based Chinese dissident and founder of an organization called All Girls Allowed, said the video clip showed “the heartrending personal tragedy caused by the brutal enforcement of China’s one-child policy.”

“We urge all people and leaders of the free world to view this video and hear the cries of the parents and this unborn child who was simply murdered,” Ling said in a statement. “How long will the world turn a blind eye to this inhumane policy?”

Al-Jazeera said it was unusual that the incident occurred in one of China’s most modern cities, saying that forced abortions sometimes occurred in “remote areas.”

Littlejohn disagreed that the incident was unusual. She and Ling both pointed to Chinese government-reported figures of more than 13 million abortions carried out each – more than 35,000 a day.

“How many of these are forced?” Littlejohn wondered.

She noted that the fines levied on couples who violate the policy could be 10 times as high as an annual salary in China. “Most people cannot afford to pay these fines. What’s left for them? Forced abortion or forced sterilization.”

“Our hearts are broken again,” said Ling, “For this family, for the suffering mother, father, and their innocent daughter, who is about to learn the cruel truth of the one-child policy through the fate of her baby brother whom she will never meet.”

Ling was a student leader during the 1989 Tiananmen Square democracy movement before escaping to the U.S. via Hong Kong.

She founded All Girls Allowed over the summer. The organization says its mission is “to restore life, value, and dignity to girls and mothers, and to reveal the injustice of China’s one-child policy.”

In 2002, the Bush administration withheld federal funding for the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA), citing evidence that its work in China supported the coercive elements in the population-control policy.

The move was in line with U.S. legislation prohibiting funds for any agency that “supports or participates in the management of a program of coercive abortion or involuntary sterilization.”

UNFPA, which denied the claims, lost a total of $244 million in the ensuing years.

While campaigning for the presidency, Senator Barack Obama promised to restore the funding, a pledge he kept soon after taking office.

The head of China’s National Population and Family Planning Commission announced last month that the 30 year-old policy would continue “in the coming decades.”

You cannot buy this level of stupidity: banning potatoes from WIC program.

Here is the stupid, moronic article of the day, maybe the week. Time will tell and with this being the last week before the NOvember elections, who knows? The are just more food Nazi's trying to tell us they know what is best for us. I am sure this will swing many potato farmers to vote for the demosocialistacrats next week. From CNSNews.com. You think the government wants more spuds for ethanol prodcution? People can always drink the ethanol and kill themselves instead of eating potatoes. After all, the NWO trolls would like to reduce the global population however they can.

Ag Secretary Defends Dropping Potatoes From Federal Food Program for Low-Income Mothers
By Dan Joseph  

(CNSNews.com) – Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack says there is nothing wrong with eating potatoes in moderation, even though the federal Women, Infants and Children (WIC) program – one of the largest federal food assistance programs – is now finalizing an interim rule that bars participants from buying potatoes with their federal dollars.

The U.S. Dept. of Agriculture also is limiting potatoes in the federal School Lunch Program.

When CNSNews.com posed the question -- "Is there anything wrong with eating potatoes in moderation?" -- Thursday to Vilsack at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., he responded, "No," but then quipped to the room full of reporters, “Potatoes are a source of ethanol, I'm sure.” Vilsack had been speaking on the issue of biofuels production.

“The quick answer to this is that studies have shown that WIC participants are already purchasing potatoes in sufficient quantities. There’s no need to encourage purchasing of potatoes because they’re already purchasing sufficient quantities. That’s why it’s not in the supply,” Vilsack added.

The WIC program, which is operated by Vilsack’s USDA in conjunction with state agencies, has drawn fire for including “fresh fruits and vegetables” but not white potatoes in food packages given to low-income mothers – and it won’t allow federal vouchers to be spent on potatoes.

The exclusion of potatoes stems from a reccomendation in a report from the National Academy of Sciences' Institute of Medicine. The recommendation was “made to encourage consumption of other fruits and vegetables," according to Christine Stencel, a spokeswoman for the Institute of Medicine.

Stencel told CNSNews.com that the IOM was charged with bringing WIC packages in line with the latest dietary guidelines, which "all kind of say that we need to encourage greater varieties of fruit and vegetable consumption in this country."

"White Potatoes are pretty widely consumed in America, so WIC participants are getting the benefits, the nutritional benefits that are in white potatoes," Stencel said. "The recommendation about not using the WIC packages to purchase white potatoes is mainly to promote the purchase and consumption of a greater variety of fruits and vegetables.

"The research shows that we Americans are generally consuming too few of those dark green leafy vegetables -- orange, yellow, red ones, et cetera. So that’s the main reason. It’s not saying that potatoes don’t have their own nutritional value, it’s just people are getting those benefits already.”

Potato growers, meanwhile, complain that the federal government is unfairly singling out potatoes because “healthy food” advocacy groups have lobbied the federal government.

Tim O’Connor, president and CEO of the United States Potato Board, said the USDA’s WIC decision is misguided and counter-productive to the goal of promoting healthy eating habits among women and children.

“It’s a preposterous decision by both the Institute of Medicine and the USDA,” O’Connor told CNSNews.com.

“Regardless of the level of consumption of potatoes by participants, if you read the details of the WIC program there are ingredients of specific concern that women and their young children in the program are not consuming enough and those primary ones are focused around nutrients that potatoes are an excellent source of,” he added. “I wish I could get into their head and understand their reasoning because it doesn’t hold water. Scientifically, it makes no sense.”

Chris Voight, executive director of the Washington State Potato Board told CNSNews.com that the Ag Department’s move sends the wrong message to consumers.

“What does it mean when they (WIC) say ‘OK, we’re going to let you use your WIC dollars to purchase all the fresh fruits and vegetables you want -- except potatoes?’” Voight said. “It makes it sound like potatoes are not nutritious. That’s what we’re very concerned about.”

John Keeling, president of the National Potato Council said the decision will ultimately end up hurting poor mothers not only by depriving them of important nutrients but also by limiting options economically.

“The problem for the WIC mothers” said Keeling “is that you’re taking a nutrient-dense vegetable that for $3.80 can provide nutrition and satisfying food for their kids for a week and you’re taking that away from them as an option.”

Even with the new explanation from Vilsack, Potato growers and their advocates do not see a good reason for singling out potatoes for exclusion from government food programs.

“I’m sure that they’re also buying apples, bananas and lettuce, said Voight “They’ve got to be buying other produce items and yet they’re only excluding potatoes? That seems very discriminatory.”

The federal WIC program provides food to low-income mothers designed to meet the special nutritional needs of infants and children up to five years of age who are at nutritional risk.

Persecution of Christians in Pakistan: Hostile takeover of a church.

Christians in any islamic country are not safe and Pakistan is one of the worst for persecution and violence against Christians. I am keeping my commentary short as I have a very dinged right hand and wrist. Have no idea from what. I would rather get the posts up and keep my two cents to a minimal state. This from Jihad Watch.

Pakistan: Police break up Mass held in front of chapel seized by Muslims

Imagine the reaction if they had disrupted Muslim prayers on any legal pretext. An update on this story. "Rawalpindi: Police stop mass in front of Gordon College chapel," by Jibran Khan for AsiaNews, October 25:

Islamabad (AsiaNews) - The situation remains tense between Christians and local authorities in Rawalpindi (Punjab) over the illegal occupation of the Christian chapel of Gordon College, a Presbyterian Church University. Yesterday, the police stopped the celebration of a Mass organized by the Protestant community in front of the chapel. To prevent the gathering local authorities applied law 144 / c, which bans any gathering of more than two individuals. More than 20 police trucks arrived on site, dispersing the crowd.

On 19 October, a group of 20 armed men occupied the chapel and have barricaded themselves inside. These are Muslim faithful who have the backing of the local government with false documents claiming ownership of the building.

"Unfortunately there is one thing standing between me and that property: the rightful owners." - Hedy Headley Lamarr, Blazing Saddles

The act has drawn the protests of both Christians and Muslims. In recent days, the All Pakistan Christian Action Committee (Apcac), the local Christian community and non-governmental organizations took to the streets of Rawalpindi to demand justice and freedom of worship for Christians.

Which Muslim groups protested?

Nina Robinson Asghar, head of Apcac, said: "The culprits have made fake documents of the property, they want to demolish the Church and construct a commercial center,but we will never allow this to happen."

The Chapel of the Gordon College was reopened in April 2010 after eight years of closure. It currently belongs to a government trust fund, which should hand it to the Christian community, however, according to Pakistani law, the church could also be sold to third. The illegal occupation is an attempt to steal the building, a similar incident occurred in April, but the police intervened, arresting the culprits.

Hindu terrorism, truth or lies from islam

This is from Sam Hindu. There is no love lost between islam, muslims and Hindus. There have been perhaps millions of Hindus butchered because of islam over the last 1400 years. islamic persecution of the Hindus is well documented and one of the best historical books that covers this is the following book, "The Legacy of Jihad, Islamic Holy War and the Fate Of Non-Muslims." The book is edited by Andrew Bostom and forewarded by Ibn Warriq. I have read this book and it is on my desk with other books I use for reference. I bring this book up as it is one of the best books I have EVER read about islamic jihad and how jihad has laid waste to countless cultures, true religions and societies. The book is long and tedious at times but for one who wants to learn about islam, jihad and the atrocities from islam, most of it recorded and taken from islamic sources, The Legacy Of Jihad stands alone by itself. Read it and then pass it on. You will never regret reading this book. The flip side of this is that the Hindus have often times retaliated against the muslims. Who can blame them. Trust me on this one.

Just a few posts tonight as this is a long one and pain is very bad. Hurts to type.

Hindu Terror



“To know a person’s religion we need not listen to his profession of faith but must find his brand of intolerance.”
Eric Hoffer

In recent years, the Indian Muslims have started talking about Hindu terrorism as if all the problems in Kashmir and elsewhere in India are mostly due to the Hindu intolerance towards Muslims.

They have successfully fooled few third rated thinkers with their half-truths and some politicians at times like to promote Muslim’s views of Hindu terrorism. Because of this, in India, recently a new term is coined – the ‘Saffron terror’, which is allegedly inspired by Hindu fundamentalism.

Since Saffron terror is relatively a newer issue, the present author wants to discuss a bit about the origin and the significance of the Saffron and how much link does it have with terrorism.

India, Hindustan, Bharat is not just apiece of Land, mountains, Rivers or House of so many languages but it is me and my Billions of people who are a citizen of this Great Ancient Land of wisdom and knowledge.

Our philosophy, psychology, Science, Knowledge and Wisdom is not which came out over night but it is an experience of thousands and thousands and thousands of years of experience.

The ancient India, as historians recorded, was a self–contained world. The sacred soil of this HOLY land was not only a land of spirituality, philosophy and self-realization but also a land of peace, culture, music, dance and literature for thousands of years till the time an army of ‘half humanized half ape’ Bedouin barbarians attacked this holy land with sword in one hand and a demonic book ‘Qur’an’ in other hand.

This ancient CIVILIZATION and nation called Hindustan is the birthplace of Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism and Sikhism.Which are all Branches of HINDU SANATAN DHARMA.

Saffron is the only color that can symbolize all aspects of Hinduism and other Indian religions. It is the color of ‘Agni’ or fire, which symbolizes the Supreme Being. Fire worship had its origin in the Vedic age. The saffron color, also auspicious to the Sikhs, the Buddhists and the Jains, seems to have obtained religious significance much before these religions came into being.

During ANCIENT days, when sages moved from one ashram (a religious hermitage) to another, it was customary to carry the fire along. But it was inconvenient to carry a burning substance over long distances. This had given rise to the symbol of a saffron flag, a symbol for flames. AND saffron is a color or sun rise and sun set.

Triangular and often forked saffron flags are seen fluttering atop most Sikh and Hindu Jain and Buddhist temples. While Sikhs regard it as a militant color, Sikh, Jain and Buddhist monks and Hindu saints wear robes of this color as a mark of renunciation of material life. Saffron is the symbol of unity of man kind in Hindu India.

By coining a controversial term like ‘Saffron terror’, the Muslims linked Hindus, Sikhs, Buddhists and Jains with terrorism. In support of their views, Muslims give examples of LTTEs (Tamil tigers who were Hindus) and Sikh terrorists used for Khalistanis. No doubt the Tamil tigers were mostly Hindus but they were not motivated by religion.

What LTTE had been doing for decades was undoubtedly terrorism, but it does not qualify as something that can be called ‘Hindu terrorism’ because religion was not the driving force or ideology behind their insurgency. It’s more of ‘race’, ‘language’ and ‘politics’ than religion. Secondly, LTTE movement was mainly a ‘local’ problem in northern part of Sri Lanka, not as widespread as Islamic terrorism which is a serious threat to the whole world.

Islamic terrorists are absolutely motivated by religion and therefore it would be illogical to compare Muslim terrorists with LTTEs. Similarly Khalistani movement was also a ‘local’ issue. Moreover today both LTTE and Khalistani movement are in history, but Islamic terrorism is at its peak.

Secondly, there is nothing like ‘worldly brotherhood’ among Hindus or Sikhs so that in other countries they start targeting each other citing the atrocities in Sri Lanka or in Punjab. In the case of Islam, religion has become most important issue. Nationality and race have practically no significance.

Because of this, any perceived atrocity against Muslims in any corner of the world is being avenged by taking lives of completely unrelated innocent people somewhere else in the name of Allah.

This ‘global link’ of religion is nonexistent not only amongst Hindus but practically to any other religion except Islam. There is Muslim ‘Ummah’, but there is no Hindu ‘Ummah’. Hence; Hindu and Sikh terrorists do not exist on global chart but Muslim terrorists does exist. Correlating Buddhists and Jains with terrorism is an absurd thought.

Third; there is no inter-religious terrorism (as example, Shia- Sunni, Sunni-Sufi, Sunni-Ahmedi conflicts and bombing each other’s mosques) amongst Hindus as we see in Islam.

Fourth; unlike Muslims, the Indian Hindus do not kill or imprison their critics. Constructive criticism of Hinduism is always welcome by the Hindus. Apostasy is regarded as a private choice. No Indian religion has ever been spread by sword or deception. The strength of all the Indian religions is in ‘Yogic Meditation’,Vedic knowledge and not conversion. A religion whose strength is in politics of conversion is not an Indian religion.

Fifth; Islam promotes suicide terrorism but Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs or Jains strongly condemn it. All Indian religions talk about spiritual upbringing of the soul through meditation and self-realization and not about death and worldly pleasures after death.

Hinduism is the worlds oldest religion and it survived all attacks because it is a tolerant religion and deep roots in Vedic Knowledge.

Hinduism talks about “Sarva dharma sambhava” (equal respect for all religions) A Vedic Teaching. This ancient faith is also known as ‘Sanatana Dharma’ (Eternal religion) and the five principal virtues prescribed by all schools of Sanatana Dharma are non-violence, truthfulness, non-stealing, chastity and non-covetousness (Saraf, 1996, p.60). Do the Muslims find all these virtues in the teaching of Muhammad?

Therefore there are sufficient evidences that the holy Saffron color has nothing to do with terrorism. Rather it had been associated with sacrifice and salvation. The Hindu ‘Sanyasis’ (a Hindu who has no attachments to worldly things) and the Buddhist monks who have left their home in search of the ultimate truth had been wearing this color for several thousand years before the birth of Islam.

The term Saffron terror is a deliberate misinformation. Muslims use this term for obvious reasons and some Indian politicians from Congress and Left parties use it for Muslim sycophancy. This is the famous vote-bank politics of India.

The present author, though born and brought up in Hindu culture, is not a Hindu apologist. He is not associated with any political or religious organization in India or abroad. As a Humanist, he certainly does not support any kind of religious intolerance and firmly believes in religious harmony and peaceful coexistence.

If intolerance is really on the rise amongst Indian Hindus, it needs to be exposed and strong corrective action needs to be taken before it flourishes. Now let us have a look at the positions of the Hindus and Muslims on global chart.

First of all; it is known to the world that Muslims cannot coexist peacefully within the same nation and society anywhere in the world. They breed and multiply very fast and ultimately eat away the very culture of their host nation and try to replace it with a seventh century barbaric mentality. They demand honor and dignity from the non-Muslims but give them hate, death and destruction in return.

Once they achieve power, they start ethnic cleansing of the aboriginal. In every corner of the world, the Muslim mentality is same with hardly any exception.

A large number of Indian Hindus and Sikhs have settled in the West. They mostly adapt the culture of their host nation with respect and always eager to be an essential part of the host nation both economically, socially and even politically.

The Westerners have observed this basic difference between the Hindu, Sikh immigrants and the Muslim immigrants. In fact the truth is so prominent that even the Muslims cannot deny this.

The Indian work force in Western nations is the brightest and the best with enormous creative and entrepreneurial energy. In home as well, India is becoming the hub for a fast-changing global economy.

Today under the brilliant leadership of our present Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh, the great nation India is rising as a country filled with pride in her abilities, confidence in what it can achieve and will have the world as her playground. Today the Hindus are roaring like tigers in global jungle proud and fearless and outperforming the world.

Now let us look at our next-door neighbors Pakistan and Afghanistan, These two terrorist nations are trapped between Allah and army. If we borrow words from Cameron (Daily Times, 2010), Pakistan has become a base for militants and “promote the export of terror” across the globe.

The pitiful neighbors not only have reached rock bottom, but now have started to dig even deeper. These two failed Islamic states set very low goals of achievement and then consistently fail to achieve that also. Large parts of the country are lawless and rebellious. By its own admission, the governments are unable to control home-grown terrorism or to rein in every jihadi group.

So, before the Indian Muslims talk about Hindu terrorism, they should look at the decades-old devil-dance of their ideological brothers and partners in faith at Pakistan and Afghanistan and their ‘wonderful’ contribution to the world. Those who live in glass houses should not throw stones at others. How can we forget the famous quote of Dr. Zakir Naik, ‘Every Muslim should be a terrorist’? (Downing, 2009, p.354)

In fact, Muslims calling the Hindus intolerant is not a new topic. Indian Muslims demanded Pakistan because they found the Hindus intolerant. But more than half of the Muslims remained in India after the partition.

This clearly proves that the theory of Hindu intolerance towards Muslims was bogus. Secondly, in India there are minority Christians, Buddhists, Sikhs and Jains who never complain about Hindu fanaticism.

There is near-total ethnic cleansing of Hindus, Sikhs and other minorities in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Bangladesh; but if Hindus are really fanatic, why the world does not see same type of ethnic cleansing of the Muslims or other minorities in the Hindu majority India? If the Hindus do not want the minorities to rise, then how the Christians and the Sikhs are prospering in India?

Religion and politics are well separated in India. Religion has no role in politics and any mention of it in practical matters is just irrational. Despite Hindu majority, India is not a Hindu nation and Hinduism is not the state religion of India. In fact India was never a Hindu nation with the right meaning of the term like Islamic nation where religion paralyses the democratic system.

Though India is in a far and far better position under Hindu majority than any other Muslim majority nation, in recent years, we find some intolerant Hindus, mostly loonies and misguided people, showing certain degree of intolerance towards Muslims. Their logic is simple.

They believe that if Muslims cannot coexist peacefully with them in areas where Muslims are a majority, why should Hindus be forced to live peacefully with Muslims where Hindus are a majority? If Muslims are killing Hindus in Kashmir, then what wrong it is to kill the Muslims in Gujarat?

This is a distorted logic. An eye for an eye cannot be the norm of a civilized society. It also goes against the age-old teaching of Hinduism. If the vast majority of the Hindus are misguided by this logic, which is most unlikely to happen in the future, India will become a mirror image of Pakistan and Afghanistan.

This is a fate the Indians should avoid at all costs because it means not only destroying the core values of Indian culture and civilization but our prosperity and success in global arena.

Today India is making astronomical progress in the areas of economy and trade, science and technology, medicine, energy, education, space and ocean exploration, defense, culture, entertainment, sports and people-to-people contacts. Tomorrow India will have to take the responsibility to provide leadership to the world.

Strange but true that these patriotic Hindu are byproduct of Islamic threat to India. History demonstrates that intolerance and fanaticism in one religion provokes intolerance and fanaticism in other religions. This is a defense mechanism and very much normal.

Before the advent of Islam, Hinduism was an extremely liberal religion and the Hindus were hardly united in religious faith. There were several sects and sub-sects who were not at all perturbed by the differences of the religious values of others and lived in harmony with one another.

A large part of India united under the banner of Hinduism only when Islam started bloodshed on Indian soil as if all the sects and sub-sects suddenly realized their oneness and religious singularity. The Sikh religion was formed from Hinduism to protect India from Islamic assault. This way, the Sikhs are inseparable from the Hindus. Every Sikh is a warrior Hindu duty-bound to protect India from Muslim aggression.

Because of the threat of Islam, religious intolerance is on the rise not only in Hinduism but to various degrees in Christianity and Buddhism as well. The Western Christians are uniting to save their land, religious values and culture from Islamic aggression.

There are many strong anti-Islam groups in Nepal, Israel, UK, USA, Germany and France and they often work in close connection with one another to save their countrymen. The Thai and Vietnamese Buddhists are protesting against Muslims for the same reason.

This is patriotism. But when we see that a Florida-based Church announced plans to burn copies of the Qur’an on church grounds to mark the ninth anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, it is religious fanaticism.

Similar to the Qur’an burning threat, a prominent aspiring young politician from India showed his religious fanaticism when he called to behead the Muslims in a public speech. Surprisingly another very powerful and controversial Indian politician, an octogenarian, founder and chief of a Hindu nationalist organization who has his base at Mumbai (a commercial city in the western part of India) supported the young politician’s derogatory views.

This octogenarian is very vocal in his controversial opposition to people who migrate to Mumbai, especially Muslims. He has urged the Hindus to start calling India ‘Hindu Rashtra’ (Hindu nation) by mentioning that only Hinduism to be honored in India.

Not only this, in 2002 this powerful politician issued a call to form a Hindu suicide squad to counter alleged Muslim violence (Puniyani, 2006, p. 123). When he called for a Hindu suicide squad, two retired generals from Indian army actually started such a camp and commenced giving training to some aspiring suicide bombers (Soondas, 2002). However, police intervened in time and the camps were closed.

Religious fanaticism attracts more loonies, fascists and racists. Though Hinduism preaches nonviolence but given the size of India’s Hindu population, it would be surprising if there were no loonies at all within the community. Hence, the right-minded Indian citizens should draw a strong boundary line between patriotism and fanaticism.

For a true Indian, a pinch of soil of India is more precious than gold. Loving own motherland and sacrificing for her is a matter of honor, pride and dignity but fanaticism is a matter of shame.

These fascists and the lunatics are always around in every religious and political organization. The political parties use these people very skillfully. This is because, for rational people religion may be a simple and private matter, but for political parties, it means vote bank. The problem is not faith or even the fanaticism, but the forthcoming elections.

These lunatics exist and they will continue to exist. It is the duty of the organization not to defend these people who openly call for murder and destruction. These people should not be encouraged or hidden away. They must be dismissed in public.

By hook or by crook, if such a fanatic comes into power, it might prove to be a disaster for the whole nation. We all know how Hitler had destroyed his country when he carried the mob with him in the name of patriotism. As someone said very rightly that, the most civilized state is not further from barbarism than the most polished steel from rust.

Revenge never stops. Blood cannot be washed away with more blood. India is the sacred land of Saints and Rishis (composers of Vedic hymns). This land is also called Devbhoomi (the land of Gods) and Punyabhoomi (the land of pious activities). Here we do not need a leader who openly declares that he would behead the Muslims if he comes to power.

We do not need a fanatic who wants to set up Hindu suicide squad to confront Islamic terrorism. We do not want a psychopath in patriot’s clothing like Hitler or Stalin to rule this sacred land of Shree Krishna and Shree Rama.

We humans are yet in an early hour of the morning of our history. The civilized life of the Human species is hardly thirty thousand years old. Even in this short period many empires and civilizations have appeared and disappeared. Many of these empires and civilizations were much greater, much stronger and much richer in spirituality than Hinduism yet they collapsed and took a permanent resting place in history within very short decades after they separated from law, justice and humanity and gave way to barbarism, bloodshed & chaos in the name of religion.

We Hindus should not think that our religion is the final expression of Human wisdom. If we believe in the moral government of the world, Hindu civilization will survive another several Million years if it strictly adheres to the principles of love, brotherhood, toleration and moral values. Otherwise, this oldest civilization of Thirty to Forty thousand years will not take another fifty years to disappear if it does not conform to them.

There is absolutely no ‘must’ about the survival of any civilization. Let the Hindus take this lesson from history before it is too late.
