Taliban, That Obama Wants To Reach Out To, Threaten Terror Attack On Washington, D.C.




Okay, granted Baitullah Mehsud is practically certifiably insane...but the Pakistani Taliban leader today threated the United States, actually Washington, D.C. (and the White House) with an upcoming terror attack. Yep. These are the Taliban that President Obama figures we can reach out to ...at least to their more moderate elements - so my question is...while Obama has us sit down with the so-called "moderates", how many threats and potential attacks from the others do we sit on our hands through? Here's some of the details of Mehsud's rantings here from the article at Breitbart:



Pakistan's Taliban chief claimed responsibility Tuesday for a deadly assault on a police academy, saying he wanted to retaliate for U.S. missile attacks on the militant bases on the border with Afghanistan.
Baitullah Mehsud, who has a $5 million bounty on his head from the United States, also vowed to "amaze everyone in the world" with an attack on Washington or even the White House.

Mehsud told The Associated Press that the academy and other recent attacks were revenge for stepped-up American missile strikes into Pakistan's border badlands.
"Soon we will launch an attack in Washington that will amaze everyone in the world," Mehsud said in a telephone interview with an Associated Press reporter. He offered few details, though in a separate recorded conversation with local Dewa radio station, he said the White House was a target.
So, do I think the Pakistani Taliban can reach out to America with a terror strike? No way. But, I do think we should treat this threat as if they could and simply erase Mehsud. A volley of predator attacks on his known location over the next week outta send a message to Mehsud that he has more than a dollar bounty on his head. Make this old fucker squirm a little for opening up his trap.

I'm personally sick of this "bend over" attitude by the Obama administration - the attempts to reach out to Iran and the Taliban which are met consistently with threats and verbal humiliations. These asswipes understand one thing...force. You want Mehsud's branch of the Taliban to fall in line? Then wipe him off the map along with his top leadership and then see what comes of it, but this practice of offering olive branches to thugs who want only our heads is ludicrous.



Pakistani Taliban threaten strike on Washington

But analysts doubt that Taliban fighters carried off Monday's raid on the Lahore academy on their own, saying the group is likely working more closely than ever with militants based far from the Afghan frontier.
It's a constellation that includes al-Qaida, presenting a formidable challenge to the U.S. as it increases its troop presence in the region, not to mention nuclear-armed Pakistan's own stability.
Mehsud told The Associated Press that the academy and other recent attacks were revenge for stepped-up American missile strikes into Pakistan's border badlands.
"Soon we will launch an attack in Washington that will amaze everyone in the world," Mehsud said in a telephone interview with an Associated Press reporter. He offered few details, though in a separate recorded conversation with local Dewa radio station, he said the White House was a target.
FBI spokesman Richard Kolko said the bureau was not aware of any imminent or specific threat to the U.S., despite what the Pakistani Taliban leader said.
"He has made similar threats to the U.S. in the past," said Kolko.
State Department spokesman Gordon Duguid said he had not seen any reports of Mehsud's comments but that he would "take the threat under consideration."
The ruthless attack on Lahore's outskirts Monday left at least 12 people dead, including seven police, and sparked an eight-hour standoff with security forces that ended when black-clad commandos stormed the compound. Some of the gunmen blew themselves up.
The siege-style approach using heavily armed militants came just weeks after the deadly ambush of Sri Lanka's visiting cricket team in the heart of Lahore. Both attacks were reminiscent of November's siege of Mumbai, India—also blamed on Pakistani militants.
A senior police investigator, Zulfikar Hameed, told Dawn News TV, that the men arrested for the attack have corroborated Mehsud's involvement.
Besides Mehsud, a little-known group believed linked to him also claimed credit. Mehsud declined to discuss the group, Fedayeen al-Islam, or any others who might have been involved.
Pakistan Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik said one attacker who was captured was Afghan, and that the initial investigation suggested the conspiracy originated in South Waziristan tribal region, Mehsud's stronghold. But Malik also said the al-Qaida-linked group Lashkar-e-Jhangvi might have played a role. Officials have said three gunmen are in custody.
"In my view, it's not done by one group," said Mohammed Amir Rana, a Pakistani analyst well-versed in the intricacies of militant groups. "One group has the major role in providing the fighters or one group might be providing the logistics or intelligence. And one group provided the financing."

For The Umpteeth Time, Iran Makes Fools Out of Obama Administration


It's getting to the point where one has to question whether or not the Obama administration is just flat out masochistic. Ever since he has taken office, President Obama has been bitch slapped by the Iranians, yet he has continued to cowtow to the mullahs and their ilk and so, again the Iranians have embarrassed the U.S. on the world stage - this time as the Iranians join the conference to discuss Afghanistan. Many countries are meeting at The Hague today to discuss strategies to bring resolve to the War in Afghanistan and at the same time that the Obama administration has been justifying that Iran is there for these talks, the Iranians have now come out with a flat response saying that America is the problem...for having troops in Afghanistan. This is foreign policy by a guy we all KNEW was going to be incompetent at it but I don't think anyone believed he would be THIS incompetent. Here's some of the details from Reuters:


The United States was meeting Tuesday with countries from around the world, including its adversary Iran, to seek support for its new strategy to end a stalemate in Afghanistan.

Richard Holbrooke, U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, said Iran's presence at the conference was a logical part of efforts to produce peace for Afghans.
"How can you talk about Afghanistan and exclude one of the countries that's a bordering, neighboring state?" he told reporters in The Hague. "The presence of Iran here is obvious."
Ahead of the conference, Akhoundzadeh repeated Iran's opposition to the presence of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
"The presence of foreign troops cannot bring peace and stability for Afghanistan," he was quoted as saying by Iran's official IRNA news agency.
"It encourages radicalism," he said. "This policy (that the Western countries) decide for the Afghan nation and for the Afghan officials does not work out any more."


Clinton, who said she has no plans for direct talks with Iranian officials at the conference, said she wanted Iran's help on border security and fighting drugs in Afghanistan.

I'm so bloody tired of this...I want to climb on top of some mountain peak with a loudspeaker and scream to the Obama administration and state, "the Iranians do NOT want anything to do with the U.S. We are the 'Great Satan' in their eyes!"

There has been not a single indication at any time in the past two years that the Iranians were even remotely interested in any conversation with America. Yet the Obama administration plunges head first into acting the pansy and coddling them for any sort of acceptance. We have Holbrooke saying that the Iranians deserve to be at these meetings while at the same time, we are winding up a war in Iraq where the Iranians are responsible for dozens of deaths of U.S. troops - how the fuck do you justify that?!!

The Iranians not only think we are a bunch of doofuses from all of this, they certainly have ZERO fear of any retribution for their building of nuclear weapons nor their export of terror worldwide. Unbelievable.


U.S., Iran at Afghan talks

THE HAGUE (Reuters) - The United States was meeting Tuesday with countries from around the world, including its adversary Iran, to seek support for its new strategy to end a stalemate in Afghanistan.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was not expected to hold substantive talks with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Mohammad Mehdi Akhoundzadeh at the meeting in The Hague.
But the conference would nonetheless bring the two together as Washington tries to enlist regional support in tackling Islamist militants in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
Richard Holbrooke, U.S. special representative for Afghanistan and Pakistan, said Iran's presence at the conference was a logical part of efforts to produce peace for Afghans.
"How can you talk about Afghanistan and exclude one of the countries that's a bordering, neighboring state?" he told reporters in The Hague. "The presence of Iran here is obvious."
Ahead of the conference, Akhoundzadeh repeated Iran's opposition to the presence of U.S. troops in Afghanistan.
"The presence of foreign troops cannot bring peace and stability for Afghanistan," he was quoted as saying by Iran's official IRNA news agency.
"It encourages radicalism," he said. "This policy (that the Western countries) decide for the Afghan nation and for the Afghan officials does not work out any more."
Shi'ite Iran worked with Washington after the United States ousted the Sunni Taliban from Afghanistan 2001.
But it backed off after being branded by former U.S. president George W. Bush as part of the "axis of evil."
It has denied U.S. accusations that it has supported the Taliban as a way of keeping at bay the United States, which has troops in both Iran's neighbors -- Iraq and Afghanistan.
"A RESPONSIBLE POSITION"
In a reversal of the policy of the former Bush administration, Obama's team views Iran as vital to any lasting solution in Afghanistan, and has sought engagement despite the continuing stand-off over Tehran's nuclear program.
Clinton, who said she has no plans for direct talks with Iranian officials at the conference, said she wanted Iran's help on border security and fighting drugs in Afghanistan.
European Union foreign policy chief Javier Solana said he hoped Iran would "take a responsible position."

Five Arrested In London For Plotting Terrorist Attack On G20


I'm telling you...I got a bad feeling about the G20 conference that is planned for later this week in London. The air is thick with potential attacks at this conference and today, the British security forces arrested five suspected terrorists that appeared to be plotting a bomb attack on G20 leaders. Here's some of the details from The Daily Mail:



Five people suspected of terrorist offences are being questioned by police today in connection with an alleged plot to target the G20 summit.
Three men and two women have been arrested under the Terrorism Act in Plymouth over the last three days after officers uncovered a cache of weapons and suspected extremist material during a house search.
They are being questioned over claims they planned to target the meeting of the world's most powerful political leaders in London later this week.
The five were held after officers found weapons, imitation weapons, suspicious devices and 'material relating to political ideology' during a house search, a police spokesman said.

The alleged plot was uncovered after officers conducted a series of raids following the arrest of a 25-year-old man on suspicion of criminal damage on Friday evening.
I mean look at how lucky the Brits got on this one. They arrest this guy last Friday for a pretty benign offense and when they do the search they find all this shit and the connection to the others. How many more terrorists are holed up right now with the same plans but aren't going to get caught foolishly ahead of time?

It seems to me that London is brimming with an awful lot of asshats who just are not willing to unclench their fists.



Five activists arrested in G20 'bomb plot' as London goes into lockdown for world leaders

Five people suspected of terrorist offences are being questioned by police today in connection with an alleged plot to target the G20 summit.
Three men and two women have been arrested under the Terrorism Act in Plymouth over the last three days after officers uncovered a cache of weapons and suspected extremist material during a house search.

The five were held after officers found weapons, imitation weapons, suspicious devices and 'material relating to political ideology' during a house search, a police spokesman said.

The arrests will heighten tensions ahead of this week's summit in London.
A massive police operation is in place to protect the world leaders, including President Obama who is due to arrive in the capital tomorrow.
The alleged plot was uncovered after officers conducted a series of raids following the arrest of a 25-year-old man on suspicion of criminal damage on Friday evening.
As police searched his home they found the weapons and suspected extremist material.
Several suspicious devices were also seized and sent for detailed forensic examination.
Three people at the property were arrested for drugs offences. Further investigations led police to a 19-year-old man who was arrested yesterday

Pakistani Security Forces Retake Embattled Police Academy, 11 Police Cadets Dead, 8 Jihadists Dead


Whoa, there's a bunch of stories all over the place regarding the attack on the police academy in Pakistan where jihadists, much in the same manner as the attack on the Sri Lankan cricket team, stormed the the academy and killed up to eleven cadets while now the latest report here from Breitbart states that Pakistani security forces have retaken the academy. Some reports claim that up to 40 have died in the attack and ensuing siege. Here's some of the latest report:


A government official says Pakistani security forces have overpowered militants who attacked a police academy, arresting six.
Rao Iftikhar says eight of the gunmen died, including two who blew themselves up.
Reports on the death tolls from the assault have varied wildly, with officials confirming at least 11 to The Associated Press. Other reports said up to 40 people had died.

And here's a bit on the original attack by jihadists and subsequent events:


Pakistani soldiers killed at least four gunmen who had seized a police academy Monday in a brazen attack that killed at least 11 officers and left at least 35 police held hostage.
The well-organized, highly coordinated assault came less than a month after an ambush on Sri Lanka's visiting cricket team in the heart of Lahore, underscoring the threat that militancy poses to the U.S.-allied, nuclear-armed country.
It prompted the country's top civilian security official to say that militant groups were "destabilizing the country."

Monday's attack occurred as dozens of the officers carried out morning drills at the Manawan Police Training School.
"We were attacked with bombs. Thick smoke surrounded us. We all ran in panic in different directions," said Mohammad Asif, a wounded officer taken to a hospital. He described the attackers as bearded and young.
At least 11 police officers died in the attack, police official Ali Nawaz told The Associated Press. Mobin, another police official, told the AP that at least 91 wounded police were sent to hospitals. About 700 trainee officers were inside the academy at the time.
"Some of the attackers are wearing (police) uniforms," police officer Ahsan Younus told the AP. "They have also taken some of our police as hostage."
I think what has to be stressed in this attack is that this is Lahore. This is NOT the volatile NW Tribal Areas - this is a big, big city in Pakistan and we are seeing a second wave of attacks here in less than one month.

No group has claimed responsibility for the attack but as with the Sri Lankan one, most fingers are going to point towards Lashkar-e-Taiba which was of course involved in the Mumbai massacre. But in Pakistan right now, there's a long list of jihadi groups including al Qaeda who usually has their fingers in every kind of terror. The point of all of this is that slowly but surely, the Pakistani government continues to lose control of this country. Don't forget, this is a country with nuclear weapons. I've said it before...ever since this weak-kneed government took over in Pakistan, there has been a huge uptick in terror and organized attacks - the whole time this government has sent nothing but signals of appeasement and this is what it has gotten them.

One can say all they want about the reign of Musharraf here in Pakistan but if you recall, NONE of this shit was happening when he had an iron hand on the controls of the military. I, personally, don't see any way that this government can regain control and some in the West better have some contingent plans to move in here and protect those nukes at some point in time.


Pakistan: Security forces retake attacked academy

LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) - A government official says Pakistani security forces have overpowered militants who attacked a police academy, arresting six.
Rao Iftikhar says eight of the gunmen died, including two who blew themselves up.
Reports on the death tolls from the assault have varied wildly, with officials confirming at least 11 to The Associated Press. Other reports said up to 40 people had died.

Iftikhar says he will provide a more exact death toll from the brazen assault later Monday.
The attack underscored the threat posed by militants to Pakistan's stability

Soldiers and other security forces surrounded the compound on the outskirts of the city, exchanging fire in televised scenes reminiscent of last November's militant siege of the Indian city of Mumbai. Armored vehicles entered the compound while helicopters hovered overhead. Some police tried to escape by crawling on their hands and knees around the bodies of fallen officers.
Six hours after the initial assault, police captured one of the suspected gunmen, dragging him to a field outside the academy and kicking him. Soon afterward, four loud explosions rocked the scene. Government official Rao Iftikhar said four gunmen were killed, including three by army snipers. However, roughly 11 gunmen remained holed up on the top floor of a building, holding some 35 police hostage.
Reports also emanated from inside the compound. Inspector Mohammad Akram told Express News TV by phone that he and 20 other policemen were locked in a room inside one of the buildings.
"We are hearing gunshots very close to us. We are sitting ducks. We request that please for God's sake take us out," he said in a low voice. "Everybody ran here and there and took shelter wherever they found."
Pakistan has endured scores of suicide bombings and other attacks in recent years, and it faces tremendous U.S. pressure to eradicate al-Qaida and Taliban insurgents on its soil. Most of the violence occurs along the country's northwest border with Afghanistan, but attacks have occurred in all the major cities, including in eastern Punjab province, of which Lahore is capital.
Monday's attack occurred close to the Indian border. No group immediately claimed responsibility.
The attacks pose a major threat to the weak, year-old civilian administration of Pakistani President Asif Ali Zardari, which has been gripped with political turmoil in recent weeks. The Obama administration has warned Pakistan that militancy poses a threat to the nation's very existence, while U.S. officials complain the country's spy agencies still keep ties with some of the insurgent groups.
Pakistan's Interior Ministry chief Rehman Malik told state-run TV that Pakistan's police are not equipped to fight the terror wave.
"In our country, at our different borders, arms are coming in, stinger missiles are coming in, rocket launchers are coming in, heavy equipment is coming—it should be stopped," Malik said. "Obviously, whoever did this attack has attacked our country's stability."
The provincial governor, Salman Taseer, told reporters at a hospital that an army brigade had "laid a complete siege," adding that a curfew was imposed in the neighborhood.

Iranian Missile Experts Are In North Korea - Helping With Missile Launch


Have you ever noticed how the Iranians consistently show up in every corner of the world where someone is giving the finger to the United States of America? We've seen Ahmadinejad show up in Venezuela to join with Chavez in calling America the enemy, we've seen the Iranians cross the border into Iraq to show the Sadr Militia how to kill American troops, we've seen the Iranian speedboats harass U.S. naval ships in the Straits of Hormuz and now, with the U.S. condemning the planned launch of a long-range Taepodong-2 missile by the North Koreans, it has been discovered that a foreign contingent is in North Korea to assist with that missile launch....yep, it's the Iranians. Again. Here's the details from the report at Times Online:


Missile experts from Iran are in North Korea to help Pyongyang prepare for a rocket launch, according to reports.
Amid increasing global concern over the launch, which the US and its allies consider to be illegal, Japan's Sankei Shimbun newspaper claimed today that a 15-strong delegation from Tehran has been in the country advising the North Koreans since the beginning of March.
The experts include senior officials from the Iranian rocket and satellite producer Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group, the newspaper said.

I have a simple question to ask. What would the world's security look like right now if the nation of Iran did not exist? Wouldn't the world's greatest nuclear weapons threat be gone? Wouldn't two of the world's biggest and most threatening terrorist organizations, Hamas and Hezbollah, wither and die without Iranian funding and supply? Wouldn't American and coalition troops in Iraq and Afghanistan be safer? Wouldn't the nation of Israel have greater peace as the main caller of their destruction be gone? And wouldn't the odds of a North Korean missile being launched be much less?

I will make the point that the following countries would benefit greatly from an Iranian nation turned to glass: U.S.A., Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Netherlands, Denmark, Poland, Israel, Iraq, Japan, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Turkey and India. Now, that's quite a list, yes? I'm simply proposing that with that contingency of nations of this world realizing such a great benefit from an Iran that no longer exists, that we all work together to see that realized. It's obvious that the Iranians want war. Let's give it to them. It won't take long...my guess is two weeks. And we can all breathe a sigh of relief that they are finally gone.


Iran missile experts in North Korea 'to help with rocket launch'

Missile experts from Iran are in North Korea to help Pyongyang prepare for a rocket launch, according to reports.
Amid increasing global concern over the launch, which the US and its allies consider to be illegal, Japan's Sankei Shimbun newspaper claimed today that a 15-strong delegation from Tehran has been in the country advising the North Koreans since the beginning of March.
The experts include senior officials from the Iranian rocket and satellite producer Shahid Hemmat Industrial Group, the newspaper said.
The Iranians brought a letter from President Ahmadinejad to the North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il stressing the importance of co-operating on space technology, it added.

As tensions increase ahead of the rocket launch, Japan's Air Self-Defense Force began deploying units capable of shooting down a rocket to the northern prefectures of Akita and Iwate.
Early today, units carrying Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles left a base in central Japan and will arrive at the northern prefectures on Monday, according to Japan's national broadcaster NHK.
On Friday Tokyo gave its military the green light to shoot down any incoming North Korean rockets.
Pyongyang has said that it will launch a communications satellite over northern Japan between April 4 and April 8, but the US and its allies in the region believe the secretive regime is actually planning illegally to test a long-range Taepodong-2 missile that could reach North America.
Japanese media claimed that spy satellites have photographed the nose cone of a long-range North Korean rocket on its launch pad. Envoys from South Korea, Japan and the US met in Washington during the weekend to discuss counter-measures to be taken against North Korea.
The three allies have warned that a rocket launch would be in violation of a UN Security Council resolution banning the communist state from carrying out ballistic missile activities.
Pyongyang has resisted pressure to call off the launch and warned that any attempt to shoot down the rocket would be regarded as an act of war.

Has Obama Put An End To UAV Strikes Inside Of Pakistan?


Okay, I've read this article about six times and I'm still not sure what President Obama clearly means in his position on just how America will go after high value al Qaeda and Taliban targets inside of Pakistan. It certainly sounds to me like he is setting up these attacks to be put on the shelf due to allowing the Pakistani government to put the kibash on them...but I'm not 100% sure on this. Perhaps you folks can find some clarity in it all, in the article here at Breitbart. Some excerpts:


As he carries out a retooled strategy in Afghanistan, President Barack Obama says he will consult with Pakistan's leaders before pursuing terrorist hideouts in that country.
Obama said U.S. ally Pakistan needs to be more accountable, but ruled out deploying U.S. troops there. "Our plan does not change the recognition of Pakistan as a sovereign government," the president told CBS' "Face the Nation" in an interview broadcast Sunday.

Pakistan has urged Obama to halt the strikes. But Gates has signaled to Congress that the U.S. would continue to go after al-Qaida inside Pakistan, and senior Obama administration officials have called the strikes effective.

Without directly referring to the strikes, Obama said: "If we have a high-value target within our sights, after consulting with Pakistan, we're going after them. But our main thrust has to be to help Pakistan defeat these extremists."
See what I mean? Gates is very clear that he is determined to continue the strikes by predator drones inside of Pakistan but I keep seeing Obama talk about "consulting" with the Pakistani government. If Obama's line is going to be the one that is followed, then I see very little chance that the Pakistani government is going to sign off on these attacks, so does that mean we won't attack? And does Obama mean that we will take a week to consult with the Pakistanis where by the end of that consultation period, the targets will have found a safe haven and we would have lost our chance?

I guess we will have to see what happens - I would call to your attention that it has been about a week since a predator attack inside of Pakistan...that's about as long as we have gone up until now without a strike...so if we don't see a strike in the next week, I would say that we are following Obama's strategy and NOT Gates' and that Pakistan is saying no.


Obama rules out US troops in Pakistan

The president also bemoaned the tenuous security situation in Afghanistan, saying, "Unless we get a handle on it now, we're gonna be in trouble." He made clear that his new strategy for the long war is "not going to be an open-ended commitment of infinite resources" from the United States.
In a wide-ranging interview, Obama sought to counter the notion that Afghanistan has become his war. He emphasized that it started on George W. Bush's watch.
"I think it's America's war. And it's the same war that we initiated after 9/11 as a consequence of those attacks," Obama said. "The focus over the last seven years I think has been lost."
Obama taped the interview Friday, the same day he launched the fresh effort to defeat al-Qaida terrorists in Pakistan and Afghanistan, widening a war that began after terrorists struck the U.S. on Sept. 11, 2001. He set new benchmarks and ordered 4,000 more troops to the war zone as well as hundreds of civilians and increased aid. The plan does not include an exit timeline.
Defense Secretary Robert Gates, in an interview on "Fox News Sunday," said the short-term objectives for U.S. forces in Afghanistan have narrowed under Obama's new strategy even as a flourishing democracy in Afghanistan remains a long-term goal.
"I think what we need to focus on and focus our efforts is making headway and reversing the Taliban's momentum and strengthening the Afghan army and police, and really going after al-Qaida, as the president said," Gates said.
Al-Qaida terrorists are still a serious threat and retain the ability to plan attacks against the United States even though they have been inhibited over the past several years, Gates said.
Both Pakistan and Afghanistan have praised the new U.S. strategy for dealing with growing violence in the region.
But Obama has irked Pakistan since taking office in January by retaining a powerful but controversial weapon left over from the Bush administration's fight against terrorism: unmanned Predator drone missile strikes on Pakistan along its border with Afghanistan.
Pakistan has urged Obama to halt the strikes. But Gates has signaled to Congress that the U.S. would continue to go after al-Qaida inside Pakistan, and senior Obama administration officials have called the strikes effective.
Without directly referring to the strikes, Obama said: "If we have a high-value target within our sights, after consulting with Pakistan, we're going after them. But our main thrust has to be to help Pakistan defeat these extremists."
Asked if he meant he would put U.S. troops on the ground in Pakistan, Obama said: "No." He noted that Pakistan is a sovereign nation and said: "We need to work with them and through them to deal with al-Qaida. But we have to hold them much more accountable."
"What we wanna do is say to the Pakistani people: You are our friends, you are our allies. We are going to give you the tools to defeat al-Qaida and to root out these safe havens. But we also expect some accountability. And we expect that you understand the severity and the nature of the threat," Obama added.

Immigrant Muslims Threaten America's Small Towns


This is an excellent article over here at Family Security Matters that portrays just what has happened to one Tennessee town, Shelbyville, when muslim immigrants from Somalia descended on that location like locusts on a field of wheat. Here's some of the excerpts:


So when hundreds of Somalis began turning up in the town – many of them dressed in traditional Islamic garb – locals quickly took notice.

"They've had an impact here. Unfortunately, it's not been a good impact," said Brian Mosely, a reporter for the local Shelbyville Times-Gazette.

I found that there was just an enormous culture clash going on here," he said. "The Somalis were – according to a lot of the people I talked to here – were being very, very rude, inconsiderate, very demanding. They would go into stores and haggle over prices. They would also demand to see a male salesperson, would not deal with women in stores"

The problems extend to local schools – where some Somali students won't talk to female administrators. There have also been issues with local law enforcement.
So there you have it, just another example of the Somali islamists entering America and doing everything BUT assimilating. I've been through this a dozen times, perhaps it's time for an analogy:

You and your spouse are invited to a neighbor's for dinner. They open the door to you and you storm past them...you head straight to their refrigerator where you grab a frozen pizza out of the freezer, slap it in the oven, then grab two beers from the fridge and sit down at the kitchen table putting your feet up. One of you gets up and walks over and turns the stereo on and blasts out a rendition from Metallica. You then proceed to the bedroom where you start going through their chest of drawers, throwing clothes on the floor....well, you get the idea. How would your neighbors react? Just smile and let you do your thing? Hell no. If I was them, I'd have a shotgun out and pointed at your ass and tell you that in 10 seconds your asses better be out of the house.

Why is it any different for Somali islamists? You are guests in our house, assholes and one of these days, if you don't sit on the couch nicely, there's gonna be hell to pay.


Somali Muslims Changing Small Tennessee Town

At first glance, Shelbyville is your typical sleepy southern hamlet. It's nestled in middle Tennessee, where the walking horse is king.

There's Main St., the local sheriff, a movie theatre. It's all very "Mayberry," except for one big difference: the recent arrival of hundreds of Somali Muslims.

Small Town Having Difficulties

Shelbyville is about an hour's drive from Nashville, in the heart of the Bible Belt. Like many Americans, the citizens of Shelbyville knew little about Somalia other than the 1993 Black Hawk Down incident, in which 18 U.S. servicemen were killed while battling warlords and Islamic Jihadists in the Somali capital of Mogadishu.

So when hundreds of Somalis began turning up in the town – many of them dressed in traditional Islamic garb – locals quickly took notice.

"They've had an impact here. Unfortunately, it's not been a good impact," said Brian Mosely, a reporter for the local Shelbyville Times-Gazette.

Mosely won an award from the Associated Press for a series of articles he wrote for the paper about Shelbyville's Somalis.

"I found that there was just an enormous culture clash going on here," he said. "The Somalis were – according to a lot of the people I talked to here – were being very, very rude, inconsiderate, very demanding. They would go into stores and haggle over prices. They would also demand to see a male salesperson, would not deal with women in stores"

Different People, Different Culture

"Their culture is totally alien to anything the residents are used to," Mosely added.

The problems extend to local schools – where some Somali students won't talk to female administrators. There have also been issues with local law enforcement.

"I'm not really sure whether that is because of experiences with the police in their country, or whether that's just the way their culture is," said Shelbyville's Police Chief, Austin Swing.

Shelbyville is home to about 17,000 people. The town's Somali population is estimated to be between 400 and 1,000.

Mosely says the Somalis have isolated themselves from the rest of the community.

"We're talking about people who have not had any experience with Western civilization," he explained. "They don't know the language. Things like running water are a miracle to some of these folks…you don't take people from a totally alien culture, put them into a community, and then say 'alright, you must get along.'”

Little Chance to Adapt

Abdirizak Hassan is the director of the Somali Community Center in nearby Nashville. He says the state of Tennessee has no programs to help immigrants integrate into their new surroundings.

"They come, and the only thing they can do is go to work, and then after work they go back to the apartment," Hassan said. "They're totally isolated and there's no interaction between them and the locals."

He added that some have even expressed a desire to return to Somalia.

"A lot of them face eviction. They put them in an apartment complex that costs $600 a month. They can't get a job that gives them that much money," Hassan explained.

"And sometimes you have families, like, a single mother with eight kids, or seven kids or six kids, and you expect her to go to work in six months time with no English, no driver's skills, nothing? I mean, sometimes it's impossible."

Hamas Continues Intimidation of Fatah in Gaza


It appears that Fatah and Hamas aren't going to be getting together for a real kumbaya picnic and bonfire anytime soon as Hamas officials just got done releasing some Fatah officials they had arrested for ...lemme see how Hamas would deem it....getting together illegally and conspiring? Anyway, Fatah is bitching about it and it does seem rather inevitable that we're gonna see some dead bodies in Gaza in the near future...I know, I know...a real shame it would be, wouldn't it? Here's the details of the latest incident from Haaretz:


Hamas Islamists in the Gaza Strip released at least eight leaders from the rival Fatah faction of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, hours after they were arrested for questioning, Fatah officials said on Saturday. The Hamas-run Interior Ministry in the Gaza Strip said the Fatah men were detained for questioning after holding an "illegal factional meeting". Fatah officials later confirmed that the three men had been released.

A spokesman for Fatah said that Hamas had launched a new crackdown on its officials in the Gaza Strip. Fahmi al-Zaarir said Hamas security forces had arrested the officials throughout the coastal territory in a bid to prevent Fatah from regrouping.
I defy you to find one leftist Western proponent for an official Palestinian state who has ever addressed the complete incompetence of ANY faction in this land of imbeciles to govern anything larger than a city block.

I mean, I could go on for hours about how BOTH Hamas and Fatah are terrorist organizations but what no one has ever addressed is that the people living in the palestinian territories would more or less be dead in a year under the government of these morons. The only thing that keeps these people fed is checks handed over to Hamas and Fatah by the American State Department as a reward for killing and attacking Israelis.


Hamas frees Fatah's Gaza officials hours after arrest

Hamas Islamists in the Gaza Strip released at least eight leaders from the rival Fatah faction of Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, hours after they were arrested for questioning, Fatah officials said on Saturday. The Hamas-run Interior Ministry in the Gaza Strip said the Fatah men were detained for questioning after holding an "illegal factional meeting". Fatah officials later confirmed that the three men had been released. They said among those held was Abdel-Rahman Hamad, a former minister in the Palestinian Authority, who had been meeting fellow Fatah members in the city of Gaza.

A spokesman for Fatah said that Hamas had launched a new crackdown on its officials in the Gaza Strip. Fahmi al-Zaarir said Hamas security forces had arrested the officials throughout the coastal territory in a bid to prevent Fatah from regrouping. Hamas ousted Fatah from Gaza in a bloody coup in 2007. Since then, the Islamist group has periodically detained Fatah activists. Last week, the rival Palestinian groups adjourned reconciliation talks in Egypt without a breakthrough on the shape or agenda of a national unity government. The Israel Defense Forces, meanwhile, reported Thursday that during its in offensive in Gaza earlier this year, Hamas executed 14 members of Fatah. Shortly after the conflict, Hamas accused Fatah of collaborating with Israel in the campaign by providing the Israel Air Force with intelligence on targets.

Pakistani Forces Start The Weekend Off Right - Kill 26 Taliban In Mohmand


Yep...a real nice start to the weekend with 26 less Taliban in the world and a bunch more hobbling over mountain peaks as the Pakistani forces in Mohmand threw a bunch of artillery and helos at the Taliban jihadists that have been busy sniping away. Here's some of the details from the article over at Reuters:


Pakistani security forces, backed by helicopter gunships and artillery, killed 26 Islamist fighters in Mohmand tribal region on Saturday, a paramilitary official with knowledge of the operation said.
Many militants fled to Mohmand after being driven out of Bajaur, a neighboring tribal region where security forces had mounted an offensive more than six months ago.
Security forces pounded militant positions on Saturday after they came under fire during a search operation in Mohmand's Saapri area.
"Twenty-six militants were killed and many were wounded," the paramilitary official said.

Apparently the Pakistani military didn't get the al Qaeda message the other day that the Pakistanis better stop military operations or more mosques will be bombed - I guarrantee we will see an attack in the next three or four days in retaliation for this new Mohmand operation.


Pakistani forces kill 26 militants in Mohmand region

ISLAMABAD (Reuters) - Pakistani security forces, backed by helicopter gunships and artillery, killed 26 Islamist fighters in Mohmand tribal region on Saturday, a paramilitary official with knowledge of the operation said.
Many militants fled to Mohmand after being driven out of Bajaur, a neighboring tribal region where security forces had mounted an offensive more than six months ago.
Security forces pounded militant positions on Saturday after they came under fire during a search operation in Mohmand's Saapri area.
"Twenty-six militants were killed and many were wounded," the paramilitary official said.
There was no independent confirmation.
Security analysts have said a suicide attack on mosque that killed at least 37 people in the neighboring Khyber tribal region on Friday might have been carried out in retaliation for the operation in Mohmand province.
The Pakistan army has fought to contain an Islamist militant insurgency that has spread across the northwest during the past two years.
U.S. President Barack Obama said on Friday that al Qaeda and Taliban militants had to be rooted out from Pakistani tribal lands as part of a new strategy to stabilize Afghanistan, and reduce the threat of an al Qaeda attack in the West.

Al Qaeda/Taliban Suicide Bomber Hits Pakistani Mosque, 48 Dead


This is too typical of al Qaeda so I am fingering them for this operation, although it is not laid out in the article here at Breitbart. This attack, where a suicide bomber snuck into a Pakistani mosque near the Afghan border and set off his suicide belt at the height of prayers, was meant to intimidate those helping to keep the supply route open to Afghanistan from Pakistan. And al Qaeda has ALWAYS been more fond of the suicide bombing than the Taliban have been. Here's some of the details on this massacre of 48 people, in the name of allah, of course:


A suicide bomber blew up a packed mosque near the Afghan border at the climax of a Friday prayer service, killing 48 people and wounding scores more in the worst attack to hit Pakistan this year.
Islamic militants were suspected in the blast in the Khyber pass, apparently to avenge recent military operations in the area aimed at protecting the major supply route for NATO and U.S. troops in Afghanistan, authorities said. The route passes in front of the mosque.

The bomber sneaked into the mosque and detonated his explosives during the hour-long service, which observant Muslims around the world attend around noon on Fridays, witnesses said.

You know, I get tired of trying to provide some sort of commentary or observation on attacks like this but at a point, long ago, these all started to run together. And still, after all of this time and all of the death and blood, people still consider islam a religion. Some STILL think mohammed was more than some schizophrenic abuser. Some actually still think of jihad as a holy war - it's not, it's an excuse for blood thirsty murderers to get their jollies. Islam is the playground of homicidal maniacs. Hell, even their own are starting to see through the facade...look at this from the article:

"What kind of holy war is this? Only poor people have been killed," said Asfandyar Wali, the head of the ruling secular party in the northwest. "This is not about implementing Islamic law, this is not about holy war. This is outright insurgency."

I couldn't have said it any better. It's a con and it's been bought by 75% of the world.


Suicide attack kills 48 at Pakistani mosque

Several security officers were killed in the attack, which came hours before President Barack Obama unveiled a revised strategy to "disrupt, defeat and dismantle" the al-Qaida terrorist organization and the Taliban militants operating in Afghanistan and in northwest Pakistan.
Afghan and Pakistani officials praised Obama's emphasis on civilian aid to their countries, saying it would be an effective way to deal with the growing violence from Taliban and al-Qaida militants.
The bomber sneaked into the mosque and detonated his explosives during the hour-long service, which observant Muslims around the world attend around noon on Fridays, witnesses said.
"As the prayer leader said 'God is great,' the bomb went off with a big bang," said Nadir Shah, a paramilitary soldier who was treated for head wounds in the nearby city of Peshawar. "I felt it was the end of everything. Sometime later when I opened my eyes, I was lying among dead bodies."
The powerful blast collapsed most of the two-story whitewashed building. Scores of residents and police dug frantically with their hands through the bricks and wood for survivors, but mostly they pulled out bloody, dusty corpses.
With anguished women waiting nearby, police displayed blood-spattered prayer caps and sandals for relatives to examine to see if they belonged to their loved ones.
Militants in Pakistan and Afghanistan have often killed scores of Pakistani civilians in attacks. Mosques and funerals have been targeted before, but Friday's blast struck many as plumbing new depths of evil.
"What kind of holy war is this? Only poor people have been killed," said Asfandyar Wali, the head of the ruling secular party in the northwest. "This is not about implementing Islamic law, this is not about holy war. This is outright insurgency."
Khan Zaib, a 30-year-old father of six, stopped at the mosque on his way home from a business meeting.
"It was like doomsday," said Zaib, wounded on the head and hands. "I saw body parts flying in the air. I saw blood everywhere."
Tariq Hayat, the top administrator of the Khyber tribal region, said 48 bodies were found in the rubble, and he predicted the death toll would likely rise. More than 100 people were wounded, medical officials said.
Pakistan has been hit by scores of attacks by al-Qaida and Taliban militants since the Muslim country withdrew its support for the Taliban in Afghanistan after the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks and supported the U.S.-led invasion of that country.
Until Friday, the deadliest recent attack was in September when a suicide truck bomb killed at least 54 people and devastated the Marriott Hotel in Islamabad, the capital.
The militants are mostly sheltering in the border region, which Western officials say they use as a base to attack U.S. and NATO soldiers in Afghanistan, where violence is also running at all time highs. The lawless, mountainous region is believed to be a possible hideout for al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden.
The mosque sat in a rocky valley near the town of Jamrud, on the main road along which scores of containers carry fuel, vehicles, food and other vital supplies to the expanding U.S.-led force in Afghanistan.
Suspected Taliban militants have attacked both trucks and transport depots along the route in recent months, destroying scores of military vehicles and raising doubts about the reliability of the supply line.
In response, authorities have launched several offensives against the insurgents, something tribal leader Hayat speculated was the reason for the mosque attack.
"Residents of this area had cooperated and helped us a lot (in the offensives). These infidels had warned that they will take revenge," he said. "They are the enemy of Pakistan. They are the enemy of Islam."

UNRWA, where is the money going?

by Anav Silverman

In recent years, billions of dollars have poured into Gaza from hundreds of countries and international organizations. How much of that money has actually reached Palestinian civilians, effectively improving their quality of life and economy, has yet to be completely determined thanks to vague audits and on-line information.

Only recently, with a relatively silent international press, have there been questions from top political leaders, primarily from US, about the way in which the donor money will be transferred into Gaza.

At an Egyptian donor’s conference organized by Norway and Egypt in early March, more than 75 international donors and organizations met to announce their financial support of the reconstruction in Gaza. Over $5.2 billion were pledged at the conference, surprising the Palestinian Authority who originally called for $2.8 billion needed to build-up Gaza.

In light of the US pledge of $900 million, the second largest following Saudi Arabia‘s $1 billion at the conference, US Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton stated that no US funds earmarked for Gaza would end up in the “wrong hands.”

By wrong hands, Clinton meant Hamas, the militant Islamist Palestinian party in complete control of the Gaza Strip. Over $300 million dollars of the US pledge money will be going to Gaza reconstruction, while the rest of the $600 million has been earmarked to Palestinian Authority‘s Mahmoud Abbas.

However, there is another set of “wrong hands” in this scenario through which the transfer of funds may very well pass through, hands that are not considered a neutral player in the Arab-Israeli conflict. US State department spokesman, Gordon Duguid stated that Gaza support would be provided through USAID, in coordination with UN agencies that will most likely include UNRWA.

UNRWA, the United Nations Relief Works Agency, established in 1949 to aid Palestinian refugees, has shown dangerous partiality to Hamas terrorists.

In 2004, former UNRWA commissioner-General Peter Hansen revealed to the Canadian Broadcasting Company that UNRWA may very well employ Hamas members. “I am sure that there are Hamas members on the UNRWA payroll and I don’t see that as crime,” Hansen infamously stated. He further added, that “We do not do political vetting and exclude people from one persuasion as against another.”

UNRWA has employed several high profile terrorists which include top Islamic Jihad rocket maker, Awad Al-Qiq who was killed in an Israeli air strike last May 2008. Al-Qiq was the headmaster and science instructor at an UNRWA school in Rafah, Gaza. Another terrorist, Hamas’s interior minister and head of the Executive Force, Said Siyam, was a teacher for over two decades in UNRWA schools.

Fox News recently reported that UNRWA does not ask its employees whether they are members of, or affiliated with, a terrorist organization such as Hamas or Islamic Jihad. UNRWA also offers no formal screening to ensure that its employees are not affiliated with terrorist organizations.

During Operation Cast Lead, UNRWA officials accused Israel of firing into an UNRWA school, killing dozens of Palestinian civilians seeking refuge. Israel maintained that Palestinian rocket launchers locate next to the school had fired mortars on IDF soldiers, which prompted the army's response. Later, UN official Maxwell Gaylord, reversed the UN’s stance stating that the shelling and fatalities had actually taken place outside of the school. But the media damage to Israel had already been done.

Have you ever wondered where all the money is ending up? Billions of dollars and Euros. Some
of it from US taxpayers. The United Nations is to be supporting peace not war.

by Anav Silverman

Over 180 Palestinian rockets have been fired at Israel since the unilateral ceasefire began on January 18, according to the IDF Spokeperson's Unit. The latest Qassam rocket attack targeted Ashkelon on Tuesday, March 24 after a 10 day lull. A Qassam rocket fired from the Gaza Strip hit the Ashkelon are on Tuesday afternoon. No injuries or damage were reported.

Between March 17-24, three Palestinian mortar shells were fired at IDF forces operating along the border security fence. Hamas's Izz al-Din al-Qassam Brigades claimed responsibility for the mortar shells fired on March 22.

The last rocket attacks on Israel took place a week ago, on March 14, when Palestinian rockets slammed into the western Negev. The last rocket attack on Sderot took place on March 5, when a Qassam slammed into an open area in Sderot.



Although Hamas recently condemned the Qassam rocket fire from the Gaza Strip, the rocket attacks have continued throughout March. Hamas stated that although it has fired thousands of rockets in the past, its military wing was not behind recent attacks. The militant Islamic group in control of Gaza also stated that it was actively investigating who was responsible for the rocket fire.

On the day on which Israeli PM Ehud Olmert declared the ceasefire effective, January 18, Palestinian terror networks fired a total of 19 rockets at Israeli civilians in the south. Three of the rockets were fired after Hamas, Islamic Jihad, and other Palestinian networks declared a truce on the afternoon of January 18.

A week into the ceasefire, one IDF soldier was killed and three wounded in a roadside bombing on January 27.

Qassams, mortar shells, and Grad rockets have continued slam into Israel sporadically since the truce, with Sderot and western Negev residents entering bomb shelters between one to two times a week.

On February 1, the first grad-Katyusha was fired at Israel since Operation Cast Lead, following two more Grad rockets fired at southern Israel on February 13 and February 21 respectively.

On February 28, nine rockets including two newly advanced Grad-type rockets slammed into Ashkelon. In what was the worst attack since the ceasefire, a Grad rocket slammed into an Ashkelon school, causing heavy damages. The Grad rocket tore through the school, after the air raid siren sounded in the morning, with shrapnel destroying several classrooms. Seven people living nearby the school suffered from stress-related trauma.

The Ashkelon municipality was forced to shut down the school for sometime until repairs could be made. The Grad rocket that hit the school had a range of about 14 km or 8.6 miles, and was designed to cause massive damage.

*Ha'aretz.com, Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and YNet News contributed to this report.
For the people of Southern Israel, there is no cease-fire, no truce. Yet the liberals moonbats cry that Israel must honor the cease-fire, the truce. Why aren't they screaming for Hamas to do the same?
Attacking Sderot at DePaul University

by Jacob Shrybman

One week ago I shared the human side of the conflict in southern Israel and told my personal stories from Sderot in a presentation at Depaul University in Chicago sponsored by StandWithUs, Hillel, and the university’s Political Science department. As a representative of Sderot Media Center, I traveled from Israel to explain the daily reality of rocket fire that has been plaguing the country for the past eight years. Still one week after I told personal stories of having 15 seconds to run for my life, because of the overshadowing anti-Semitic harassment and disruption caused by pro-Hamas student and non-student organizations my message of understanding and empathy for the people of southern Israel has not yet permeated peoples’ minds.

I wasn’t 30 hours off the plane from Israel before I was greeted with more direct anti-Semitism than qassam rockets fired at Sderot. Several anti-Israel posters draped the entrance to the building in which I was to tell my personal stories. I began my presentation with a small audience of around 20 people and as my presentation went on the room began filling with people not merely against Israel’s political policies and action but people in clear support of the terrorist organization Hamas.

When I welcomed the custom of a question and answer period following my presentation the very right of free speech that I welcomed to the audience of now over 100 people was thrown in my face and denied to me. To start the question and answer period, an audience member verbally attacked me, stated his support for the firing of rockets into Israel, and ended his anti-Semitic rhetoric filled rant with a question irrelevant to anything in my presentation. I then pointed out to the audience the same fact I want to point out in this article, that this person was not simply criticizing Israel but was clearly expressing his support for the terrorist organization Hamas. Before I could finish answering the question that was underneath all the threatening hate filled propaganda in this audience member’s statement I was interrupted and silenced by the overwhelming Hamas supporters. Next another audience member rose up in the front of the room and screamed out calling me a “dirty whore” in Arabic and proceeded to grab his crotch and scream “Here’s your qassam!” in Arabic.

Continue reading here.
I am not surprised at the reaction from DePaul University. It is an established fact that the majority of US Collages and Universities openly support anti-Semitism and this rhetoric. In fact a student who is Jewish will get lower grades by the majority of their professors if it is brought to the professor' s attention that the student is a Jew. It is chic to be an anti-Semite now on 99% of the campuses today.

Documentation of this has become a goal of Gary Fouse of Fousequawk.

I ask you, my reader to remember the people of Sderot and Southern Israel in your prayers. I am going to ask you to consider carefully what school you are planning to attend (or your child) and whether that school allows hate speech such as is seen in the video above and others that can be found on the internet. Do you want your child indoctrinated into Nazi rhetoric? Do you want your hard earned dollars supporting Nazi ideology disguised as sympathy for Palastinians? If you are an allumni of such a school and a supporter of Israel, why are you sending the school money to continue these activities?

And like I always do, I will ask you to donate to the Sderot Media Center. Just click on the logo at the top or bottom of this post. It will take you right to the donation page.

Now is not the time for people to be silence.

Evil flourishes when good men do nothing!



Taliban Suicide Bomber Says Farewell To His Fellow Jihadis By Accidentally Blowing Them Up


Suicide vest: $225 , 1992 Toyota pickup for attack: $4,239 , Video tape for farewell message: $3.50, Accidentally hitting the detonate button while hugging your buddies: Priceless!

Yep, it's almost too good to be true but Reuters here is reporting that a Taliban suicide bomber, all rigged up in his suicide vest, was saying goodbye to his fellow jihadi comrades and accidentally detonated himself, killing six of this fellows as well as himself. Now, if that isn't justice, what is? Here's some of the details:

(hat tip Doug at Sondrak)


A would-be suicide bomber accidentally blew himself up on Thursday, killing six other militants as he was bidding them farewell to leave for his intended target, the Interior Ministry said."The terrorist was on his way to his destination and saying good-bye to his associates and then his suicide vest exploded," a statement from the ministry said.

The incident happened in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan where mainly British troops are struggling against a growing Taliban-led insurgency.

Can't you just hear it happening? He's just about ready to get behind the wheel of the Toyota pickup to head into town and al-Blotto says, "Oh brother, just ONE MORE hug for us before you praise allah!" ....and he walks back into their welcoming arms and then, just one simple pebble catches on his flip flop, a little stumble, a misplaced flick of his right hand and KABOOM!

Imagine the savings in all of this for the American military - 7 dead Taliban and zero spent on hellfires!

Question of the day: Does a jihadist suicide bomber that screws up and kills six of his fellow jihadists actually get the 72 virgins?


Blundering Afghan suicide bomber blows up 6 militants

KABUL, March 26 (Reuters) - A would-be suicide bomber accidentally blew himself up on Thursday, killing six other militants as he was bidding them farewell to leave for his intended target, the Interior Ministry said."The terrorist was on his way to his destination and saying good-bye to his associates and then his suicide vest exploded," a statement from the ministry said.Taliban-led attacks in Afghanistan have escalated in the past year with suicide and roadside bombings insurgents' weapons of choice.The incident happened in Helmand province in southern Afghanistan where mainly British troops are struggling against a growing Taliban-led insurgency.In a separate incident in Helmand, nine policemen were killed when Taliban insurgents attacked a police post in Nari Sarraj district, the Interior Ministry said.Elsewhere, four Taliban insurgents were killed and seven policemen and two civilians wounded during a battle just outside Ghazni city, about 200 km (125 miles) southwest of the capital Kabul, a spokesman for the provincial governor said.On Friday, Washington is set to unveil a review of its strategy in Afghanistan, which is expected to emphasise the need to expand Afghan security forces and strengthen the country's heavily aid-dependent economy.

George Galloway, Banned From Canada, Threatens To Sue


First off, I cannot be MORE thrilled that the country of Canada banned British MP George Galloway from setting foot on Canadian soil. Hooray for the Canadians! The Canadian government has labeled George Galloway a terrorist and thus he is not allowed into the country of Canada, and that has old George spitting mad and now his attorneys are thinking about a defamation lawsuit against Canada. Here's the entire story out of Breitbart:


Banned Brit MP may sue Canada

OTTAWA - A British MP barred from Canada is considering suing the federal government.
Lawyers for George Galloway say he could file a defamation suit after the government branded him a terrorist. The Harper government says the five-time MP is inadmissible to Canada because he engaged in terrorism and was a member of a group that engaged in terrorism.
They apparently base that on the fact that Galloway delivered humanitarian aid to war-torn Gaza, along with $45,000 he turned over to the Hamas government.

Hamas is a banned terrorist organization in Canada.
Galloway says he does not support Hamas and would not even vote for its political faction if he could cast a ballot in Palestinian elections.
Now, I cannot express to my readers how utterly in contempt I hold George Galloway. This slimeball IS a terrorist, he's a terrorist collaborator, he's a jihadist with lily white skin and a British lineage. He's a disgusting traitor to his people and a documented anti-Semite. So, the Canadians, again, should be applauded for calling out this piece of shit. This guy makes Jimmy Carter look impartial.

Now, the story above came out of the Canadian Press. Let's look again at that one line from the story, that openly and blatantly supportive position in favor of Galloway:

They apparently base that on the fact that Galloway delivered humanitarian aid to war-torn Gaza, along with $45,000 he turned over to the Hamas government.

Unbelievable, wouldn't you say? George Galloway is delivering humanitarian aid to poor Palestinians like I'm vowing my allegiance to Chairman MaObama right now. It's refreshing to see that another country's media is just as corrupt as America's.

Anyway, my hope is that the United States will take the same stance as Canada, when and if George Galloway wants to set foot on our land. I'm not sure if Galloway did get in here, that he'd enjoy his visit.

Saudi Arabia Says Senior Al Qaeda Leader On Wanted List Has Turned Himself In


The story on this from Breitbart is very brief so I've excerpted the entire story just below but this is another sign of the bad way that al Qaeda tasted defeat in Iraq. It appears this bad guy was one of the head honchos over in Syria that kept that funnel of al Qaeda fighters flowing into Iraq through Syria. Here's the story:


Saudi Arabia: Senior al-Qaida leader surrenders

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) - Saudi Arabia says a senior al-Qaida leader has returned to the country voluntarily and turned himself in.
The Interior Ministry says Fahad al-Ruwaily was on a list of the kingdom's 85 most wanted militants living abroad. Ministry spokesman Mansour al-Turki said he returned to Saudi Arabia Wednesday, but he refused to give more information.
A news Web site close to the ministry said Thursday that al-Ruwaily was a key figure in al-Qaida training camps along Syria's border with Iraq. The Doaa Web site said he provided fighters with weapons and forged travel documents to help them enter Iraq from Syria.

The Saudis appealed in February for 85 suspects to surrender, offering to reunite them with their families after rehabilitation.
Now, I personally think the whole program of "rehabilitation" is a farce in Saudi Arabia - basically it's amnesty under a different name but at the same time, it has to have gotten pretty bad out there in the desert for old al-Ruwaily to travel back to Saudi Arabia and turn his ass in, don't you think?

It's my guess that this guy found himself with a bunch of al Qaeda trainees who when they looked across the Syrian border in Iraq and saw the desert teeming with U.S. Marines, Apache flyovers and Awakening patrols, turned in their shit and high-tailed it back to where they came from. At the same time, I gotta believe that the cross border operation into Syria by the Americans...what was that...about nine months ago? Well, that had to have gotten this guy a little jumpy, eh?

Luton, England: Anti-Al Qaeda Protest: March 28th, 2009

Crossposted by Findalis

by Maggie Thornton at Maggie's Notebook

The Pentagon, under the direction of Barack Obama, has banned the use of "The Global War on Terror." But we all know where the terror is, and it is global, and all of it is perpetrated by Islam. Our friends in England are fighting a battle that is being denied by those in the media and Parliament. Brits are running scared. They are afraid to speak out or show-up...with some brave exceptions. See a video below.

Lionheart - Luton, England

Lionheart is a frequent contributor here and other blogs passionately concerned about terrorism. If you do not know his story - and a story that is evolving and very serious to his life and liberty, and that of his family - then visit him at Lionheart. Don't stop at the homepage. Dig into his archives. Americans need to know what is going on in Britain, because we are the next stepping stone.

On March 28th, this Saturday at 12:25 p.m., there will be a protest in Luton, England, Lionheart's hometown and where his saga began. Here's what the march is all about:
After watching our soldiers from the Royal Anglian Regiment being aboused by the British wing of Al Qaeda on the streets of Luton, the wider community are now going to march in demonstration against them and in support of our troops.
Here's a message for Lionheart:

The threat to the life of the nation has never been greater since the Second World War, and it is happening now in our generation.

The militant wing of the Islamic religion is hell bent on causing mass murder and mayhem against the British people as they seek to force us to bend and bow in submission to their religious ideology – This cannot be doubted!

7/7, the Glasgow airport car bombing, the ‘Tiger Tiger’ nightclub failed car bombing and all other thwarted attempts are proof enough of their intent towards us. It might only be a small minority who carry out these acts, but that does not mean that they are not supported by the vast majority (a debatable issue).

The Home Secretary has now stated, after being given a new report on tackling Islamic extremism in Britain, that there is an increased threat of a dirty bomb attack being carried out against us.

The threat is not new, so as the report states regarding the proliferation of nuclear, biological and chemical substances, it is only a matter of time until there is a successful terrorist attack that outweighs in gravity the attacks that have already been perpetrated against us by Al Qaeda.

It’s not ‘if’. It is ‘when’, ‘where’, and ‘how big’?

The Home Secretary has said that it is the responsibility of not just the Government to tackle the threat now posed to our national security, but also that of the wider community.

Quote: She cited the example of the Muslim activists who recently protested at a homecoming parade in Luton for British forces returning from Iraq.

She said: "The civil challenge means that, if people feel it appropriate to demonstrate against our troops coming home from defending this country abroad, we - as Government and others - will say in turn that we think that that's wrong.

"Not that they've broken the law - one of the things we're defending in this country is the right to free speech, but that isn't free speech that will go unhindered or unchallenged by either Government or, I think, the broader community."

After watching our soldiers from the Royal Anglian Regiment being abused by the British wing of Al Qaeda on the streets of Luton, the wider community are now going to march in demonstration against them and in support of our troops.

The organiser of the official event pulled out of leading this through fear of controversy, and has rearranged for London in April. We the people, are so incensed at what took place on March 10th that we will be meeting in Luton on Saturday with or without Luton Council’s permission. That is just the common consensus amongst the people.

If we the people cannot stand up to this abhorrent behaviour by this civil enemy, then who is going to?

As the Home Secretary has said: “but that isn't free speech that will go unhindered or unchallenged by either Government or, I think, the broader community."

The broader community will be meeting in Luton on Saturday March 28th at 12.25 to demonstrate and challenge those extremists living in our country.

Each and every person working within the mainstream media have a responsibility to your country too. Are we not all in this together? What if it is you or one of your relatives caught up in a mass ‘dirty bomb’ attack in London at some point in the future?

We the people need your help to tell the country that we will be meeting in Luton on Saturday.

The BBC and ITV give Anjem Choudry, the Osama Bin Laden of British militant Islam a platform to promote his vile ideology, yet they refuse to help those seeking to challenge that.

Isn’t it about time, for the sake of the future life of the nation, that those in power start to help the common people with their aims and objectives?

Now is that time, and it concerns Luton, which has been the scene of so much Al Qaeda terrorist activity, including Al Qaeda’s deceleration of war against us on the morning of 7/7.

We can do what we do through the internet, and arouse the few, but with mainstream media coverage we can arouse the many from amongst the broader community to come out in support.

Now is the time for you to do what the Home Secretary has said, or go back to sleep and remember this message when you are reporting the next Al Qaeda terrorist attack to hit our shores.

Those on the Left within the Establishment should not refuse what the Home Secretary herself, has said because this is their country too. If they do, it proves the point that they are just as much our enemy as militant Islam itself. No Moslems in positions of influence should refuse either because if they are true to their words about there being moderates from amongst them, then they should welcome a demonstration against the militants from within their own religion particularly as they have never demonstrated against this element themselves.

We will be in Luton on Saturday at 12.25pm whether it is just one elderly man with a sandwich board protesting against this disgusting behaviour on our streets, or 10,000 demonstrators.

Once again Al Qaeda in Britain has started this and this will be our response.

Help us or hang your heads in shame!!!

This is not a political march; this is a demonstration of the people.

Luton, England Anti-al-Qaeda March: Saturday - March 28, 2009

European Union President Calls Obama's Stimulus Plan a ' road to hell '


You want to know the definition of a Socialist? Well, when a member of the European Union, let alone the President of it, calls your economic plan "a road to hell" then you ARE a socialist. So President Barack Hussein Obama has officially been designated a socialist! Whew! It's finally out there. Haha. But seriously, Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek, who is acting President of the European Union actually said that about Obama's stimulus plan for the U.S. economy. Now a bunch of European leaders think he went too far in those words but I just emailed them all and let them know that Obama isn't the kind of man to stick up for himself or his country so they have nothing to worry about. Here's some of the details of what happened from the story at Breitbart:


The head of the European Union slammed President Barack Obama's plan to spend nearly $2 trillion to push the U.S. economy out of recession as "the road to hell" that EU governments must avoid.
The blunt comments by Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek to the European Parliament on Wednesday highlighted simmering European differences with Washington ahead of a key summit next week on fixing the world economy.

It was the strongest pushback yet from a European leader as the 27-nation bloc bristles from U.S. criticism that it is not spending enough to stimulate demand.
Shocked by the outburst, other European politicians went into damage control mode, with some reproaching the Czech leader for his language and others reaffirming their good diplomatic ties with the United States. The leaders of EU's major nations—France, Britain and Germany, among others—largely ignored Topolanek and his remarks.
I think at this time there is a full spectrum of emotions going on with European leaders in regards to Obama - I'm sure some of them secretly want the U.S. to go down in flames, I'm sure there are others who are legitimately fearful that their main protector may falter and there's other I would guess that would love to welcome America into the fold of socialist states. And then you have one like the Czech leader who simply knows an idiot when he sees one.


EU presidency: US stimulus is 'the road to hell'

It was the strongest pushback yet from a European leader as the 27-nation bloc bristles from U.S. criticism that it is not spending enough to stimulate demand.
Shocked by the outburst, other European politicians went into damage control mode, with some reproaching the Czech leader for his language and others reaffirming their good diplomatic ties with the United States. The leaders of EU's major nations—France, Britain and Germany, among others—largely ignored Topolanek and his remarks.
Obama pays his first official visit to Europe next week, aiming to thrash out reforms to the global financial system with the Group of 20 nations and call on NATO allies to commit more troops to the U.S. war in Afghanistan.
Europeans leaders hope the new U.S. administration will agree with them on tightening oversight over the global financial system—which they see as crucial to fixing the global economy.
Instead, the United States is focusing its efforts on economic stimulus and plans to spend heavily to try and lift itself out of recession with a $787 billion plan of tax rebates, health and welfare benefits, as well as extra energy and infrastructure spending.
To encourage banks to lend again, the U.S. government will also pump $1 trillion into the financial system by buying up treasury bonds and mortgage securities in an effort to clear some of the "toxic assets"—devalued and untradeable assets—from banks' balance sheets.
Obama insisted Tuesday that his massive budget proposal will put the ailing U.S. economy back on its feet. "This budget is inseparable from this recovery," he said, "because it is what lays the foundation for a secure and lasting prosperity."
But Topolanek took aim at Washington's deficit spending.
"All of these steps, these combinations and permanency is the road to hell," Topolanek said. "We need to read the history books and the lessons of history and the biggest success of the (EU) is the refusal to go this way."
"Americans will need liquidity to finance all their measures and they will balance this with the sale of their bonds but this will undermine the liquidity of the global financial market," Topolanek said.
Topolanek spoke the day after he was ousted by his own parliament. The Czech Republic currently holds the six-month rotating EU presidency but its leadership is in question, with Topolanek hanging on to a caretaker government at home after losing a "no confidence" Tuesday.
In Washington, State Department spokesman Gordon Duguid said he did not expect the Czech poltical turmoil to affect Obama's upcoming trip to Prague because the president was traveling to attend an EU event.
