Obama's True Objective...

By Findalis of Monkey in the Middle



Finish the job Hitler started!

 I normally take reports from Haaretz with a large grain of salt, but I did get back-up sources on this story.
U.S. President Barack Obama has told several European leaders that if Israeli-Palestinian talks remain stalemated into September or October, he will convene an international summit on achieving Mideast peace, senior Israeli officials told Haaretz on Thursday.

The officials said the conference would be run by the Quartet of Middle East peacemakers - the United States, European Union, United Nations and Russia - in a bid to forge a united global front for creating a Palestinian state. The summit, they said, would address such core issues as borders, security arrangements, Palestinian refugees and the status of Jerusalem.

Obama is determined to exert his influence to establish a Palestinian state, the officials said, and several European leaders have vowed that the EU would support any peace plan proposed by Washington. Therefore, though so-called proximity talks are set to start in the coming weeks, Obama is already readying for the possibility that the indirect Israeli-Palestinian talks might reach a dead end.

The U.S. proposal would likely be presented by the end of this year, the officials said.

On Saturday night, Arab League foreign ministers will convene to reiterate their support for Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas to begin the U.S.-mediated talks. The Arab bloc is expected to demand that the negotiations show progress within four months. September and October will thus be critical months in determining whether the talks have borne fruit.

The UN General Assembly will reconvene in late September, and that month will also mark one year since Obama hosted a largely unproductive trilateral summit with Abbas and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In addition, September 26 marks the end of the 10-month period Israel allocated for a freeze on West Bank settlement construction, and Netanyahu will have to decide whether to allow such building to be resumed.

Israeli officials said they believe Obama could postpone the international summit, or the unveiling of his own peace plan, until after the midterm Congressional elections in November, in which his Democratic Party is widely expected to suffer heavy losses.

Meanwhile, Netanyahu has a full diplomatic schedule next week. On Monday, he will travel to Sharm al-Sheikh for talks with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak on restarting the peace process. Mubarak will likely ask Netanyahu to make goodwill gestures toward the Palestinians to demonstrate the seriousness of his intentions to advance negotiations.

U.S. special envoy George Mitchell will return to the region later in the week to meet with Netanyahu and Abbas for discussions that may serve as the first round of proximity talks.

In advance of these talks, Interior Minister Eli Yishai instructed the Jerusalem Planning and Building Committee to inform him of any plan to authorize construction that the U.S. administration might deem diplomatically sensitive.

Abbas, for his part, will visit China on Friday, and in advance of this visit, he told the state-run news agency Xinhua that the Obama administration had promised him it would work to prevent any provocative Israeli moves during the negotiations.

"We want our state to be declared under an international agreement," Abbas told the agency while visiting the Jordanian capital of Amman Thursday. "If this could not happen, the Arabs will go to the UN Security Council to get recognition of Palestinian statehood."
On May 12 Israel will be celebrating Jerusalem Day.  Is this one to be the last in an undivided Jerusalem? I pray to G-d that the answer is no, for no Israeli Knesset member will vote for the re-partitioning of Jerusalem.

So where would that leave Barack Hussein Obama and his band of anti-Semites (European Union, United Nations and Russia)?

Only one option:  To impose by force their Final Solution to the Jewish Problem!



How many US Soldiers and Marines will have to die before the left cries enough?  Or will they even care since their sons and daughters do not enlist in the military.  It will be the sons and daughters of the Conservative and Christian families that will die upon the beaches, the towns, the cities, the fields of Israel.

And for what?  To justify the Nobel Peace Prize the idiots nincompoops in Norway gave to Obama last December?  To appease his Muslim masters?  To boost his already enormous ego?  Or is it simply he was taught by his baseborn family to hate the Jews.

I think the last one is the correct assumption.

Meet the Rising Star of the Taliban in Afghanistan...Former Gitmo Detainee Is Now In Charge


Why doesn't someone ask me again how I feel about the fact that Bush and Obama let Gitmo detainees out? Well, one of the most severe repurcussions of letting the scumbags out of Gitmo has been realized as a former detainee, Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir, is by all accounts running the Taliban show in Afghanistan now for Mullah Omar. From the report at The Christian Science Monitor:



Most of the commanders present there in late January had not met him before. But in southern Afghanistan he needed no introduction. He was Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir, the man who some Western officials and insurgents say is now the day-to-day leader of the Taliban.

"He has tremendous power now," says a tribal elder in the southern province of Helmand, who knows Mr. Zakir and met with him recently. "He can design military strategy and appoint or fire" Taliban shadow governors.

As the United States escalates its troop numbers to try to roll back a raging insurgency, combating the efforts of Taliban leaders like Zakir will be key. Zakir is known for his battlefield abilities as an organizer, motivator, and tactician. He wields tremendous influence in southern Afghanistan, the heartland of the insurgency and the site of another major offensive set for this summer.

A former Guantánamo detainee, he is believed now to be a deputy to reclusive Taliban leader Mullah Omar, a position he assumed upon Pakistan's arrest of the movement's former No. 2, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, and a number of other Taliban leaders.
I guess if you really want to get your blood boiling, let's leave the fact that this guy was released from Gitmo and talk about the fact that the Pakistanis arrested him earlier this year....and let him go. No one seems to know what Zakir was released by the Pakistanis but I have my own somber theory: officials in the Obama administration tried to facilitate some goodwill and some peace talks in Afghanistan with the Taliban and thus, they convinced the Pakistanis to let him go.

But with all of that said and done, the Taliban have what appears to be a new leader and it's my guess that his trip to Pakistan wasn't to cower and hide but to get some new orders for the summer from Mullah Omar.

I truly wish we would have hung this bastard at Gitmo.



Qayyum Zakir: the Afghanistan Taliban's rising mastermind

In the days leading up to the launch of a major US military offensive in the Afghan town of Marjah in February, Taliban commanders in the area received a surprise visit.

It was from a charismatic man of medium build, intense eyes, and a knack for fiery oratory. In a brief meeting, he rallied the troops, discussed strategy, and disappeared into the night.

Most of the commanders present there in late January had not met him before. But in southern Afghanistan he needed no introduction. He was Mullah Abdul Qayyum Zakir, the man who some Western officials and insurgents say is now the day-to-day leader of the Taliban.

"He has tremendous power now," says a tribal elder in the southern province of Helmand, who knows Mr. Zakir and met with him recently. "He can design military strategy and appoint or fire" Taliban shadow governors.

As the United States escalates its troop numbers to try to roll back a raging insurgency, combating the efforts of Taliban leaders like Zakir will be key. Zakir is known for his battlefield abilities as an organizer, motivator, and tactician. He wields tremendous influence in southern Afghanistan, the heartland of the insurgency and the site of another major offensive set for this summer.

A former Guantánamo detainee, he is believed now to be a deputy to reclusive Taliban leader Mullah Omar, a position he assumed upon Pakistan's arrest of the movement's former No. 2, Mullah Abdul Ghani Baradar, and a number of other Taliban leaders.

Pakistani intelligence agents arrested Zakir and a close associate earlier this year in early February, according to Western and Afghan government sources, but both were later released without explanation.

Zakir's rise to power was pieced together through more than a dozen interviews in Kabul and Lashkar Gah with his current and former associates, some of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity.


Raised in prosperity

Hailing from a well-off Pashtun family with roots in southern Helmand Province, Zakir grew up in the northern province of Jowzjan. His associates say he is in his early 40s, making him too young to have joined the anti-Soviet resistance of the 1970s and '80s as his older brother had done.

Instead, like many boys at the time, he was sent to study in madrasas, or religious schools, near the Afghan-Pakistani border that taught an extreme version of Islam. He attended such a school in Quetta, Pakistan, then a hotbed for radicalism. There he met an influential figure who would later become a major Taliban commander and his partner in arms, Mullah Abdul Raouf.

By 1997, the pair had returned to Afghanistan and joined the Taliban, the movement of religious students who had swept into power on a platform of law and order and a puritanical, often violent interpretation of Islam.

Mullah Raouf became the commander for the Taliban's Central Corps, and Zakir was one of his key deputies.

Zakir commanded an important reserve brigade of more than 1,000 soldiers that operated out of the current presidential palace. It was heavily involved in the fight against the opposing Northern Alliance, an assemblage of warlords led by Ahmed Shah Massoud, who was assassinated just before the 9/11 attacks.

Egypt Shoves It Up Hezbollah's Ass ... Sentence 26 Hezbollah Agents To Prison


The war of words between Egypt and Lebanon's terror group, Hezbollah, continues but now, the Egyptians have actually put their money where their mouth is and have sentenced 26 Hezbollah agents to prison terms in Egypt after their convictions of terror plotting.

From the article at The Guardian:



Twenty-six Arabs have been sentenced to prison in Egypt after being convicted of planning terrorist attacks on ships and tourist sites on behalf of the Lebanese Shia organisation Hezbollah, which claimed it was seeking to support Palestinian resistance to Israel in the Gaza Strip.

The emergency state security court in Cairo today handed down jail terms ranging from six months to life to 22 suspects of Palestinian, Lebanese, Egyptian and Sudanese origin. Four other men who are still on the run, including the alleged cell leader, were convicted in their absence. Sami Shihab, a Lebanese citizen who Hezbollah had previously confirmed was a member, was given a 15-year sentence.

The defendants were charged with spying on ships in the Suez canal, planning attacks on resorts popular with Israeli tourists in the Sinai peninsula and with smuggling weapons into the Gaza Strip, which is controlled by Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas. Three of the suspects were charged with digging tunnels under Egypt's border with Gaza.

Cries of "Allahu akbar" – God is great – rang out when the sentences were handed down in the heavily guarded courtroom.
There's all this talk about this sentencing being "political" ...well, hell yeah, it's political! We have to remember that Hezbollah's leader Nasrallah opened his big fat pie hole a little over a year ago and tried to embarrass Egypt with some pretty stark accusations. Well, I guess Egypt has a good memory, doofus.

At the same time, we have to realize some of the incompetence of Hezbollah. When you compare how successful al Qaeda has been in exporting terror across the globe versus Hezbollah's efforts - it's laughable. Hezbollah has tried to export their brand of terror all over the globe and this "franchise" in Egypt has worked out about as well as the others - you may remember the Hezbollah Brigades in Iraq ....well, most of them are walking the halls of Hell searching for virgins behind Doors 1, 2 and 3 compliments of the U.S. Army in Basra.

There have been rumors that Hezbollah's Nasrallah is on shaky ground in his leadership role in Lebanon - this series of convictions and sentences might just put another nail in the bastard's coffin.



Egypt sentences 26 for plotting Hezbollah terrorist campaign


Twenty-six Arabs have been sentenced to prison in Egypt after being convicted of planning terrorist attacks on ships and tourist sites on behalf of the Lebanese Shia organisation Hezbollah, which claimed it was seeking to support Palestinian resistance to Israel in the Gaza Strip.

The emergency state security court in Cairo today handed down jail terms ranging from six months to life to 22 suspects of Palestinian, Lebanese, Egyptian and Sudanese origin. Four other men who are still on the run, including the alleged cell leader, were convicted in their absence. Sami Shihab, a Lebanese citizen who Hezbollah had previously confirmed was a member, was given a 15-year sentence.

The defendants were charged with spying on ships in the Suez canal, planning attacks on resorts popular with Israeli tourists in the Sinai peninsula and with smuggling weapons into the Gaza Strip, which is controlled by Palestinian Islamist movement Hamas. Three of the suspects were charged with digging tunnels under Egypt's border with Gaza.

Cries of "Allahu akbar" – God is great – rang out when the sentences were handed down in the heavily guarded courtroom.

Lawyers said the accused were trying to support the Palestinian resistance and that some of them had been tortured – a common occurrence in Egyptian prisons.

"The verdict proves only that the case is politically motivated," defence lawyer Abdul-Monem Abdel-Maqsud told al-Jazeera TV. "It only serves the Zionist entity which has welcomed the trial as it diverts attention away from calls to try their Gaza war criminals."

The controversial case illuminated one of the Middle East's great divides: between US-backed Egypt, with its peace treaty with Israel – and Hezbollah, which is supported by Syria and Iran. Hezbollah has sought to play it down since the trial began last summer but maintains that its only interest was backing Palestinian resistance to the Jewish state.

Judge Adel Abdel-Salam Gomaa said investigations showed the group had intended "to strike Egypt's economy, destroy the bonds between its people and create chaos and instability." The accused denied the charges but prosecutors produced video footage showing explosives in premises they had used.

No appeal against the sentences is possible but there is already speculation in Cairo about possible presidential pardons as the Egyptian leader, Hosni Mubarak, seeks to improve his long-strained relations with his Syrian counterpart, Bashar al-Assad.

Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah's secretary-general, described the charges as revenge for the organisation's denunciation of Egypt's support for the Israeli blockade of Gaza. In December 2008, as Israel carried out its offensive in the Gaza Strip, Nasrallah accused Mubarak of "taking part in the crime" of Israel's onslaught an called for the overthrow of his regime.

Will Islam Make Us Submit or Will We Submit To Them First?


I absolutely love this article and this author, Daniel Greenfield, is starting to show up all over the place - this guy is taking on islam and our appeasement of this evil cult head on. As a matter of fact, much of this article can be applied to the struggle against the Marxists in our Land as well. This is great stuff from Family Security Matters:



They Don't Have to Silence Us if We Silence Ourselves First

Daniel Greenfield


What is a free country? Is it a country that is free of being ruled by any other country, or is it a country of free people who are not afraid. The truth is that no country can be free, unless its people are free. Not freedom as embodied in legal documents or stirring anthems, which nearly every country has, but free in their minds. Unafraid to believe, to speak and to live.

Tyranny isn't a man holding a gun to your head and telling you what to do. Tyranny is when you do what you're told because you're holding the gun to your own head. And then you have become a collaborator in your own oppression. It is possible to be enslaved without ever becoming a slave. And sadly, it is sadly for people to act like slaves without any chains being anywhere in sight.

No regime, no ideology and no power can maintain absolute physical control of all the people all of the time. To rule, they need to control not their bodies, but their minds and their souls. Tyranny wants loyalty but it will settle for fear. And fear, once internalized, destroys moral courage and replaces it with moral cowardice, eroding the strength of beliefs and ideas with the poisonous liquid of dread. The individual becomes an agent for the forces of tyranny, warning himself against any action that could get him into trouble. And then he is finally a slave.

In Stockholm Syndrome, hostages try to take control of their powerlessness by identifying with their captors. Under tyranny, entire populations can suffer from Stockholm Syndrome, paying devoted obeisance to the tyrants who murdered them in numberless amounts because once oppression is internalized, it comes to seem like a benediction. The mind-forged slave embraces his chains as a moral good, clings to them as an expression of all that is right and sensible in the world. He will even die for them because to a slave, freedom is more terrifying than death.

Recently, we rediscovered the simple fact that even on cable television, on a network where anything goes, one thing does not go: Depicting Mohammed, even in a bear suit. That same iron law has been unofficially passed in country after country, where operas, newspapers, books, television programs have been censored in order to avoid offending the people who might kill them, if they were not censored. Speech and image have been blocked, cut out, snipped and silenced – not because anyone has actually been killed, but because attempts have made to kill some people, which is enough to make free speech go the way of the dodo.

And that is exactly the point. They don't have to silence us, if we silence ourselves first. They don't have to oppress us if we oppress ourselves first. They don't have to demand our surrender and submission, if we surrender and submit first. Islam, we love it. Sharia law, we'll gladly adopt it. Free speech, it has to have its limits. Women's rights, we'll have to walk a fine line. Freedom. Ha, what freedom. We've already traded that away for a nice set of multicultural bongos, a few curry shops, a glass of arrack and a leatherbound copy of the Koran.

A free country is not one that nickel and dimes its birthright of freedom like a 10-year-old begging his parents to extend his curfew. It is a country whose people uncompromisingly refuse to surrender their freedoms, in the face of tyranny, torture and death, in the face of armies, tanks, secret police and all the forces of the world arrayed against them. A country that compromises on its freedom is no longer free. It will know fear. It will know terror. It will be oppressed, and there will be no relief from that oppression, until they choose freedom over tyranny once again.

Fear is a reflex. Tyranny thrives on it, imbues it and feeds it. It kills randomly in order to spread that terror further to create populations who never know when their day will come; when the suicide bomber, the black van, the sword and the secret police will come for them. Men will fight and die for freedom on the battlefield, but the struggle to remain defiant in a society where everyone is afraid all the time is a much harder fight. Yet overcoming that reflex to find safety by surrendering and collaborating, by learning to love Big Brother and embracing his ideals, is what it takes to be a free citizen of a free nation.

Pavlov, the formulator of the Pavlov Reflex, knew quite a lot about conditioning. His own experiments showed that fear could be conditioned by the ringing of a bell. Perhaps those insights were what enabled Pavlov to go on defying the Soviet Union for decades. At a time when most scientists and researchers were terrified out of their minds at a slip, a wrong word that might send them to a long death in the basements of the Lubyanka or an even longer death in the Gulags, Pavlov would ride buses and lecture the passengers on the fascism of the Soviet regime. And while those scientists eventually ended up in the Gulags themselves, Pavlov died a natural death.

Where so many Russians had become conditioned to hear the ringing of the bell everywhere, and to search for it when they didn't, to be afraid all the time, and to love the thing they feared in order to have some measure of security, Pavlov understood the reflex and rejected it. He chose to be a free man instead. Freedom comes from standing up to evil, from confronting it and defying it –not from submitting to it and collaborating with it, from silencing yourself in the hope that you will no longer be afraid when the bell rings.

Today the bell is Islam. The bell is Mohammed; that two -headed religion with its two faces, the Religion of Peace and the Religion of Death. If you focus hard enough on it as the Religion of Peace, perhaps you won't notice the grinning skull on its other side. And so the bell rings, and the poodles run to their master, licking his hands and showering him with adoration. Oh yes, Islam is a wonderful religion. It has so many human rights. Truly it is a paragon for us today. If only we could be as free as Muslims. If only.

And what is the source of Islam's power? Comedy Central reminds us of that again. Its power is simple enough. Its followers are more willing to kill those who resist, than those who are not its followers are willing to resist them.

No military victory. No superior technology. Not even sheer numbers, as there is still no First World country in which Muslims have officially become a majority. Their power comes from fear. From being prepared to murder anyone who disagrees with them until the mere threat alone, from a worthless source, is enough to badly panic a multibillion dollar corporation – the same corporation that would never take protests from Jews or Christians seriously caves when a single Muslim on a previously obscure website threatens a beheading. What is the difference? The difference is murder. Muslims murder people who offend them. And having gained a reputation for that, they are quickly parlaying it into practical political power.

A nation's police, legal and military divisions are entirely useless if they cannot protect the exercise of such basic freedoms. Without it, they become nothing more than glorified social service centers that enforce the law only when it isn't too dangerous for them, when it won't offend the wrong people – the wrong people being those who kill on casual provocation. And such a country, though it may have documents to its name attesting its freedoms, and endless ranks of judiciary appointees and professors debating those freedoms-- they mean nothing if the people cannot actually exercise those freedoms.

The Bush administration's War on Terror did not actually put an end to fear of Islamic terrorism, instead it fed it with endless alerts and prolonged battles thousands of miles away, while in the heart of civilization, terror remained emboldened enough to wave its green scimitar decorated flag. That is why the assault on Salman Rushdie was in some ways a more significant strategic blow than 9/11. On 9/11 thousands of our fellow Americans died. But when we surrender to Islamic terror and intimidation, our freedom dies. For everyone. And the bell begins to ring.

Only by defying Islam, can we begin the process of taking back our freedoms. Only by speaking out, do our voices matter. Because they don't have to silence us, if we silence ourselves first.

Let's Hear About the Arizona Immigration Law, Not From a Harlem Race Baiter, But From an Arizonan


This is a terrific piece put up by Kirly over at KIRLY(NOT A BALD STOOGE) that really lays out exactly what the new illegal immigration law in Arizona does and does not say. I encourage all of you to go to Kirly's site and view the dozens of photos put up with this post - they are amazing. We've heard nothing now for the past week but whining and accusations and race baiting and bullshit from politicians in Washington, D.C., professional race baiter pimps in New York and big old fat Commie filmmakers - let's hear about it from someone that live in Arizona, from someone that gets to deal with it day in and day out. Yeah, let's hear from one of the 70%, shall we?



Fists, Masks, and the REAL agenda of the imported activists


Last Friday, April 23, 2010, Arizona Governor Brewer signed into law SB 1070 (pdf) which exactly mirrors United States Federal Law regarding the presence of illegal aliens in the United States. Essentially, SB 1070 made it illegal for a person to be in Arizona if that person is illegally in the United States of America. There is also a Fact Sheet.

In spite of the fact that the new law explicitly and deliberately states that racial profiling is not allowed, racists, liars, and idealogues all across the country are denigrating Arizona as racist and hatefilled. These same racists, liars, and idealogues have started a boycott of The Grand Canyon State. I doubt that will be succesful. This is a beautiful state. Call the Arizona Department of Tourism and let them know you support us.

The real victims of racism (up to and including the murder of a rancher near the border) in this situation are the citizens of the State of Arizona.Refried beans were smeared on the doors our our State House of Representatives and our State Senate in the shape of swastikas. “BURN THIS RACIST STATE”, a clear call to violence and destruction, was painted on the sidewalk near our State Capital.

The pictures included here are all downloaded from the azcentral.com website. I use them to prove that many of the activists were bused in from Los Angeles. I show you the masks (think who else wears masks) and the raised fists (remember who did that?) and the hateful signs. I also show you pictures of the crowds (hundreds, not thousands).

I have preserved the picture number from azcentral in the name of each photo in the event you wish to find the original.

Pakistani Taliban Leader, Hakimullah Mehsud, Now Believed To Be Alive


I'm telling you...the Taliban leader in Pakistan, Hakimullah Mehsud, apparently has nine lives and with some credible evidence that he is indeed alive, after U.S. and Pakistani intelligence were sure he was killed in a predator drone attack, he's gotta be on life number 8 of those nine.

From the report at DAWN:


Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud is now believed to have survived a US missile strike earlier this year, but has lost clout within the militant network, a senior intelligence official said Thursday.

The revelation contradicts initial confidence among US and Pakistani intelligence officials that the militant leader had been killed in the mid-January missile attack. The Taliban consistently denied Mehsud was killed, but declined to offer evidence he lived, saying it would compromise his safety.

The latest independent investigations and reports from multiple sources in the field led Pakistani intelligence to conclude Mehsud had indeed survived, though with some slight injuries, the official said on condition of anonymity because of the topic's sensitivity.

''It was just a miracle that only one person escaped that attack, and he was Hakimullah Mehsud,'' he said. ''Miracles do happen.''

The article goes on to say that Mehsud has lost a good deal of his power to other leaders and that is why we aren't hearing from him but I have my own theory. If he is indeed alive and I do qualify that with an "if" - this guy is crawling around on his knees from his injuries and at the same time, good old Hakimullah Mehsud wants NOTHING to do with leading the Taliban anymore - he doesn't wanna be on camera, he doesn't want to have a speech recorded, he doesn't want to speak to a group of jihadis. This guy hears a hellfire in his dreams every single night. He's done. He's broken. And he'll die from his injuries...sooner or later.

Good riddance.



Hakimullah now believed alive: intelligence sources



ISLAMABAD: Pakistani Taliban chief Hakimullah Mehsud is now believed to have survived a US missile strike earlier this year, but has lost clout within the militant network, a senior intelligence official said Thursday.

The revelation contradicts initial confidence among US and Pakistani intelligence officials that the militant leader had been killed in the mid-January missile attack. The Taliban consistently denied Mehsud was killed, but declined to offer evidence he lived, saying it would compromise his safety.

The latest independent investigations and reports from multiple sources in the field led Pakistani intelligence to conclude Mehsud had indeed survived, though with some slight injuries, the official said on condition of anonymity because of the topic's sensitivity.

''It was just a miracle that only one person escaped that attack, and he was Hakimullah Mehsud,'' he said. ''Miracles do happen.''

Mehsud, however, had lost a good deal of power, and other Taliban commanders, such as Waliur Rehman, were overshadowing him.

Two other intelligence officials in the northwest told The Associated Press over the past several days that they had determined that Mehsud was alive. They spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorised to speak to media on the record.

The Taliban have been known in the past to deny a militant leader had died even if he had. They waited for 18 days to confirm that Mehsud's predecessor, Baitullah Mehsud, had been killed in an August strike as they squabbled over who would be his heir.

This time, however, the militants never changed their stance that Hakimullah Mehsud had survived, though they would not let any reporters interview him. There was never a martyrdom video or official announcement of his death posted on militant websites, either, adding credence to the notion he was still alive.

The Pakistani Taliban have been under assault by the army in their main stronghold of South Waziristan since October. The group is behind numerous suicide and other attacks that have killed hundreds of Pakistanis over the past few years.

Obama's Top Ten Insults Against Israel


America elected a muslim terrorist loving, anti-Semitic President in 2008. Here is the litany of his insults towards Israel to date. From the Telegraph:



Barack Obama’s top ten insults against Israel


Last week Israel celebrated its 62nd year as a nation, but there was major cause for concern amid the festivities as the Israeli people faced the looming menace of a nuclear-armed Iran, as well as the prospect of a rapidly deteriorating relationship with Washington. The Israel-bashing of the Obama administration has become so bad that even leading Democrats are now speaking out against the White House. New York Senator Chuck Schumer blasted Barack Obama’s stance towards Israel in a radio interview last week, stating his “counter-productive” Israel policy “has to stop”.

At the same time a poll was released by Quinnipiac University which showed that US voters disapproved of the president’s Israel policy by a margin of 44 to 35 percent. According to the poll, “American voters say 57 – 13 percent that their sympathies lie with Israel and say 66 – 19 percent that the president of the United States should be a strong supporter of Israel.”

I recently compiled a list of Barack Obama’s top ten insults against Britain, America’s closest ally in the world. This is a sequel of sorts, a list of major insults by the Obama administration against America’s closest ally in the Middle East, Israel. As I wrote previously on Obama’s treatment of both Britain and Israel:

In the space of just over a year, Barack Obama has managed to significantly damage relations with America’s two closest friends, while currying favour with practically every monstrous dictatorship on the face of the earth. The doctrine of “smart power” has evolved into the shameless appeasement of America’s enemies at the expense of existing alliances. There is nothing clever about this approach – it will ultimately weaken US global power and strengthen the hand of America’s enemies, who have become significantly emboldened and empowered by Barack Obama’s naïve approach since he took office.

The Obama presidency is causing immense damage to America’s standing in the free world, while projecting an image of weakness in front of hostile regimes. Its treatment of both Israel and Britain is an insult and a disgrace, and a grim reflection of an unbelievably crass and insensitive foreign policy that significantly undermines the US national interest.

So here’s my top 10 list of Obama administration insults against Israel after just 15 months in power:

1. Obama’s humiliation of Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House

In March, the Israeli Prime Minister was humiliated by Barack Obama when he visited Washington. As The Telegraph reported, “Benjamin Netanyahu was left to stew in a White House meeting room for over an hour after President Barack Obama abruptly walked out of tense talks to have supper with his family”, after being presented with a list of 13 demands. As I wrote at the time:

This is no way to treat America’s closest ally in the Middle East, and a true friend of the United States. I very much doubt that even third world tyrants would be received in such a rude fashion by the president. In fact, they would probably be warmly welcomed by the Obama White House as part of its “engagement” strategy, while the leaders of Britain and Israel are frequently met with arrogant disdain.

2. Engaging Iran when Tehran threatens a nuclear Holocaust against Israel

In contrast to its very public humiliation of close ally Israel, the Obama administration has gone out of its way to establish a better relationship with the genocidal regime of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, which continues to threaten Israel’s very existence. It has taken almost every opportunity to appease Tehran since it came to office, and has been extremely slow to respond to massive human rights violations by the Iranian regime, including the beating, rape and murder of pro-democracy protesters.

3. Drawing a parallel between Jewish suffering in the Holocaust with the current plight of the Palestinians

In his Cairo speech to the Muslim world, President Obama condemned Holocaust denial in the Middle East, but compared the murder of six million Jews during World War Two to the “occupation” of the Palestinian territories, in a disturbing example of moral equivalence:

“On the other hand, it is also undeniable that the Palestinian people – Muslims and Christians – have suffered in pursuit of a homeland. For more than sixty years they have endured the pain of dislocation. Many wait in refugee camps in the West Bank, Gaza, and neighboring lands for a life of peace and security that they have never been able to lead. They endure the daily humiliations – large and small – that come with occupation. So let there be no doubt: the situation for the Palestinian people is intolerable. America will not turn our backs on the legitimate Palestinian aspiration for dignity, opportunity, and a state of their own.”

4. Obama’s attack on Israeli “occupation” in his speech to the United Nations

In his appalling speech to the UN General Assembly last September, President Obama dedicated five paragraphs to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, without once referring directly to Palestinian terrorism by name, but declaring to loud applause “America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements.” He also lambasted the Israeli “occupation”, and drew a connection between rocket attacks on Israeli civilians with living conditions in Gaza. The speech served as a ghastly PR exercise aimed at appeasing anti-Israel sentiment in the Middle East, while bashing the Israelis over the head.

5. Obama’s accusation that Israel is the cause of instability in the Middle East

As The Wall Street Journal noted, “the Obama Administration seems increasingly of the view that Israel is the primary cause of instability in the Middle East”, citing a recent press conference where he stated:

“It is a vital national security interest of the United States to reduce these conflicts because whether we like it or not, we remain a dominant military superpower, and when conflicts break out, one way or another we get pulled into them. And that ends up costing us significantly in terms of both blood and treasure.”

6. The Obama administration’s establishment of diplomatic relations with Syria

While actively appeasing Iran, the Obama administration has also sought to develop closer ties with the other main state sponsor of terrorism in the Middle East, Syria, establishing diplomatic relations with Damascus in February. Syria remains a major backer of Hamas and Hizbollah, both responsible for a large number of terrorist attacks against Israel.

7. Hillary Clinton’s 43-minute phone call berating Netanyahu

As The Telegraph reported, Hillary Clinton sought to dictate terms to Israel in the wake of Vice President Joe Biden’s visit to Jerusalem:

“In a telephone call, Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, ordered Mr. Netanyahu to reverse a decision to build 1,600 homes for Israeli settlers in occupied East Jerusalem that sparked the diplomatic row. She also instructed him to issue a formal pledge that peace talks would focus on core issues such as the future of Jerusalem and the borders of a Palestinian state. In addition, the Israeli prime minister was urged to make a substantial confidence-building gesture to the Palestinians. Mrs. Clinton suggested this could take the form of prisoner releases, an easing of the blockade of Gaza and the transfer of greater territory in the West Bank to Palestinian control.”

Last time I checked, Israel was still an independent country, and not a colonial dependency of the Obama White House. Yet that still hasn’t stopped the Secretary of State from acting like an imperial Viceroy.

8. David Axelrod’s attack on Israeli settlements on “Meet the Press”

It is extremely unusual for a White House official to launch an attack on a close US ally on live television, but this is exactly what the President’s Senior Adviser David Axelrod did in an interview in March with NBC’s Meet the Press, designed to cause maximum humiliation to Israel, where he stated in reference to new settlement construction in East Jerusalem:

“This was an affront, it was an insult but most importantly it undermined this very fragile effort to bring peace to that region. For this announcement to come at that time was very destructive.”

9. Hillary Clinton’s call on Israel to show “respect”


As The Telegraph revealed, the Secretary of State lectured the Israelis at a dinner attended by the Israeli ambassador and the ambassadors of several Arab states in mid-April, urging Israel to “refrain from unilateral statements” that could “undermine trust or risk prejudicing the outcome of talks”. In Clinton’s words:

“Prime Minister [Benjamin] Netanyahu has embraced the vision of the two-state solution. But easing up on access and movement in the West Bank, in response to credible Palestinian security performance, is not sufficient to prove to the Palestinians that this embrace is sincere. We encourage Israel to continue building momentum toward a comprehensive peace by demonstrating respect for the legitimate aspirations of the Palestinians, stopping settlement activity and addressing the humanitarian needs in Gaza.”

10. Robert Gibbs’ disparaging remarks about Israel

Not one to shy away from criticizing America’s friends when the opportunity arises, White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs entered the fray in an interview on Fox News Sunday with Chris Wallace in March where he attacked the Israeli government for weakening “the trust that’s needed for both sides to come together and have honest discussions about peace in the Middle East.” In condescending terms he stated that Benjamin Netanyahu should start “coming to the table with constructive ideas for constructive and trustful dialogue about moving the peace process forward

Socialists in America Celebrate Success: Public Schools Strategy Succeeds In Voiding Religion From Young Peoples' Lives


This report, from USA Today, can be summed up with one word. Alarming. A survey was conducted of 18-29 year olds in America getting their views on how they see religion and faith in their lives and it appears that the socialistic system developed in America's public schools has been very successful in helping lead these young folks away from G_d and into the realm of the humanists. Look at these results from the survey:


Most young adults today don't pray, don't worship and don't read the Bible, a major survey by a Christian research firm shows.
If the trends continue, "the Millennial generation will see churches closing as quickly as GM dealerships," says Thom Rainer, president of LifeWay Christian Resources. In the group's survey of 1,200 18- to 29-year-olds, 72% say they're "really more spiritual than religious."


Among the 65% who call themselves Christian, "many are either mushy Christians or Christians in name only," Rainer says. "Most are just indifferent. The more precisely you try to measure their Christianity, the fewer you find committed to the faith."

Key findings in the phone survey, conducted in August and released today:

•65% rarely or never pray with others, and 38% almost never pray by themselves either.

•65% rarely or never attend worship services.

•67% don't read the Bible or sacred texts.

Many are unsure Jesus is the only path to heaven: Half say yes, half no.

"We have dumbed down what it means to be part of the church so much that it means almost nothing, even to people who already say they are part of the church," Rainer says.

This is all indicative about how religion and faith are now under constant attack in American society. From the new President of the USA stating that "America is not a Christian country anymore" to what is seemingly a monthly court battle by atheists to remove religious freedoms from the public square to that same President skipping out on National Prayer Day, the trend is apparent - the socialists' aim of demeaning and minimalizing religion in America is working and the effects of it on the young people is the most glaring.

Let's face it - we have public schools in this country more concerned with gay and lesbian sensitivity training, birth control seminars and abortion rights dissemination than with any kind of tolerance of prayer. I'd propose this experiment: Have a 12 year old boy walk the halls of his school singing "Onward Christian Soldiers" and compare that school's administration's reaction to him to another 12 year old boy who distributes flyers to a gay pride parade. Got the picture in your mind?

Let me remind everyone of the 1st Amendment of the Constitution of the United States:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

It is my contention that the Federal government HAS prohibited the free exercise of religion in this land and one of the most glaring examples of that has been in our public schools. How many public schools DARE hold a Christmas concert nowadays? How many public schools will honor other religious holidays such as Easter (or do they only allow a few bunnies pasted on a wall)?

I would guess that the majority of American actually thought that 1st Amendment read, "There shall be a separation of Church and State." Read it again and tell me where you see that demanded separation. One of the best marketing schemes of the Left has been to take some writings of Thomas Jefferson and transform those thoughts into Constitutional law. The fact of the matter is this - many of our forefathers came to America to ESCAPE RELIGIOUS PERSECUTION. They fled their homelands either because their nation had installed a national religion (the first protection provided by the amendment) or they were prohibited from openly practicing their faith (the second protection provided by the amendment).

It is my claim that our public schools are actively engaged in censorship of religious freedoms - there is no tolerance of religious displays and quite frankly, there is a campaign inside of those walls to minimize, even ridicule faith. And now we see the results of that onslaught over the years with our young people walking a lonely path through life...without hope, without direction, without morals.

Our Constitution demands freedom OF religion, not freedom FROM religion.



Survey: 72% of Millennials 'more spiritual than religious'

Most young adults today don't pray, don't worship and don't read the Bible, a major survey by a Christian research firm shows.
If the trends continue, "the Millennial generation will see churches closing as quickly as GM dealerships," says Thom Rainer, president of LifeWay Christian Resources. In the group's survey of 1,200 18- to 29-year-olds, 72% say they're "really more spiritual than religious."

Among the 65% who call themselves Christian, "many are either mushy Christians or Christians in name only," Rainer says. "Most are just indifferent. The more precisely you try to measure their Christianity, the fewer you find committed to the faith."

Key findings in the phone survey, conducted in August and released today:

•65% rarely or never pray with others, and 38% almost never pray by themselves either.

•65% rarely or never attend worship services.

•67% don't read the Bible or sacred texts.

Many are unsure Jesus is the only path to heaven: Half say yes, half no.

"We have dumbed down what it means to be part of the church so much that it means almost nothing, even to people who already say they are part of the church," Rainer says.

The findings, which document a steady drift away from church life, dovetail with a LifeWay survey of teenagers in 2007 who drop out of church and a study in February by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, which compared the beliefs of Millennials with those of earlier generations of young people.


AGE 18 TO 29: 'Less religious,' not necessarily 'more secular'
DROPOUTS: Young adults aren't sticking with church

The new survey has a margin of error of +/-2.8 percentage points.

Even among those in the survey who "believe they will go to heaven because they have accepted Jesus Christ as savior":

•68% did not mention faith, religion or spirituality when asked what was "really important in life."

•50% do not attend church at least weekly.

•36% rarely or never read the Bible.

Neither are these young Christians evangelical in the original meaning of the term — eager to share the Gospel. Just 40% say this is their responsibility.

Even so, Rainer is encouraged by the roughly 15% who, he says, appear to be "deeply committed" Christians in study, prayer, worship and action.

Collin Hansen, 29, author of Young, Restless, Reformed, about a thriving minority of traditionalist Christians, agrees. "I'm not going to say these numbers aren't true and aren't grim, but they also drive people like me to build new, passionately Christian dynamic churches," says Hansen, who is studying for the ministry. He sees many in his generation veering to "moralistic therapeutic deism — 'God wants you to be happy and do good things.' ... I would not call that Christianity, however."

The 2007 LifeWay study found seven in 10 Protestants ages 18 to 30, both evangelical and mainline, who went to church regularly in high school said they quit attending by age 23. And 34% of those had not returned, even sporadically, by age 30.

The Pew survey found young people today were significantly more likely than those in earlier generations to say they didn't identify with any religious group. Neither are Millennials any more likely than earlier generations to turn toward a faith affiliation as they grow older.

Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms

Corss Posted from Patriot's Corner

From the Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms July 6, 1775. I hope it does not come to an armed conflict of civil war. If our country does fall into a deeper chaos and decline, then these words will ring stronger than perhaps they did in 1775. We should all be our our faces praying for the salvation and recourse of our country.


Declaration of the Causes and Necessity of Taking Up Arms
July 6, 1775
Our cause is just. Our union is perfect. Our internal resources are great, and, if necessary, foreign assistance is undoubtedly attainable. — We gratefully acknowledge, as signal instances of the Divine favour towards us, that his Providence would not permit us to be called into this severe controversy, until we were grown up to our present strength, had been previously exercised in warlike operation, and possessed of the means of defending ourselves. With hearts fortified with these animating reflections, we most solemnly, before God and the world, declare, that, exerting the utmost energy of those powers, which our beneficent Creator hath graciously bestowed upon us, the arms we have been compelled by our enemies to assume, we will, in defiance of every hazard, with unabating firmness and perseverence, employ for the preservation of our liberties; being with one mind resolved to die freemen rather than to live slaves.

Lest this declaration should disquiet the minds of our friends and fellow-subjects in any part of the empire, we assure them that we mean not to dissolve that union which has so long and so happily subsisted between us, and which we sincerely wish to see restored. — Necessity has not yet driven us into that desperate measure, or induced us to excite any other nation to war against them. — We have not raised armies with ambitious designs of separating from Great-Britain, and establishing independent states. We fight not for glory or for conquest. We exhibit to mankind the remarkable spectacle of a people attacked by unprovoked enemies, without any imputation or even suspicion of offence. They boast of their privileges and civilization, and yet proffer no milder conditions than servitude or death.

In our own native land, in defence of the freedom that is our birthright, and which we ever enjoyed till the late violation of it — for the protection of our property, acquired solely by the honest industry of our fore-fathers and ourselves, against violence actually offered, we have taken up arms. We shall lay them down when hostilities shall cease on the part of the aggressors, and all danger of their being renewed shall be removed, and not before.

With an humble confidence in the mercies of the supreme and impartial Judge and Ruler of the Universe, we most devoutly implore his divine goodness to protect us happily through this great conflict, to dispose our adversaries to reconciliation on reasonable terms, and thereby to relieve the empire from the calamities of civil war.

With Immigration On Our Minds, Let's Talk About the Inevitablility of Sharia Law In America


Okay, this is one awesome article at Eurasia Review written by David Greenfield and in this article, Greenfield lays out some hugely prophetic words as to just how islam's Sharia Law will take hold, not only in the West in general, but in America. Unless it is stopped.

My favorite paragraph from the article is this:


As a country's population rises, it will approach the Sharia tipping point. Sharia law's imposition will be sold as social reforms, just as they are throughout the Muslim world. And since only disruptive forces would be opposed to it, naturally criticizing its implementation would be one of the first bans. There is only one clean way to avoid it. Just as there is only one clean way to avoid a Communist or Nazi takeover. And that is not to have people inside your borders who want to see the country turn into a Nazi, Communist or Islamist state. If you fail to do that, then sooner or later, you will either face a bloody civil war, or/and live under a Communist, Nazi or Islamist state.
You can't make it much more simple than what I just highlighted in the paragraph above. There IS only one way to save our country from the eventual onslaught of islamofascism and the movement towards Sharia law and that is simply to not let the islamists into this country.

I don't have to paint a picture of Europe for any regular readers here - we all know that the Europeans blew it with their unprincipled allowing of hordes of islamists into their countries. The results have been disastrous.

SO I WARN EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU TODAY. I urge you to watch the news carefully today and tonight - I want you to see this "outrage" in America by the Left against the new anti-immigration law in Arizona. I want you to soak up the fact that the Leftist armies are descending on Arizona and the whole time, I want you to realize that this is just an appetizer to the fight they will put up in favor of the islamists. We are watching the "Coming Attractions" folks because when the Left has built up their protective fortress called "islamophobia" sufficiently, there will be nothing we can do to stop the islamist invasion of America. And as you see from this article, once they are here in numbers, Sharia Law is soon behind and after that...well baby, it's submit or die time.



The Inevitability Of Sharia Law In The West


When you have a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. And so liberals believe that the solution to every problem is more socialism. Americans often believe the solution to every problem is more democracy. And Muslims believe that the solution to every problem is Islam. Combine the three, and you arrive at the inevitability of Sharia law in the West. As Muslims harness democratic pluralities in countries that have become socialist and thus less free, they will impose Islamic law.

In the conception of religion held by Western Liberals, religious moderates are people who are willing to allow the separation of religion from civic life, or even its domination by the civic code. Religious extremists they believe are people who want to impose religion on public life. By this standard however, there is virtually no such thing as a Muslim moderate, because Muslims do not recognize the hallowed ideas of Western liberals such as pluralism and the separation of church and state.

Even the few exceptions such as Turkey, did not create separate spheres, so much as they imposed forced secularism in order to modernize the country. And these exceptions are also collapsing, notably in Turkey where the Islamists under Erdogan have come to power. The imposed secularism in countries such as Turkey originated at a time when it was thought that a Muslim country had to forcibly secularize in order to enjoy the benefits of a modern state.

But the willingness of Westerners to accommodate Islam, and the billions in oil money that have flowed into Saudi Arabia and the UAE, have discredited that notion by showing that one can be a fanatical Muslim and still be a doctor in England, or own skyscrapers in Dubai, be a Lord or a Peer, a respected professor in a French university or have a nuclear reactor assembled in your country. Political correctness, appeasement and Dhimmitude have eroded the gains made by secularization, and helped radicalize Islam.

Muslim countries who are socially, morally and politically backward, nevertheless have access to all the modern technology and conveniences of the West. Their backwardness makes it all but impossible for them to actually reform their countries so they provide opportunities for their own people, but makes it all too easy for them to export their surplus populations to the West.

And so a goat herder who still believes that he has the right to kill his daughter if she so much as looks at a boy, can get on a 747 and arrive in London or Paris in a matter of hours. New York or Los Angeles in a matter of a few more. His children will go to Western schools, where they will be implicitly or explicitly taught the superiority of Islam, almost as much as they would be in a Madrassa. They will never be forced to choose between Islam and the benefits of the West-- and so they will inevitably choose both, benefiting from their free educations, their professional careers and the good life, while embracing increasingly fanatical Islamic ideas, in order to balance out their materialistic lives.

This combination of a Western trappings and Islamic interior will doom the West. Because Islam is an ideology that is less about faith, than it is about governance. Unlike their Western liberal patrons, Muslims do not recognize any distinction between church and state. Which means they are bent on imposing their religion on the state. Western liberals believe that most Muslims are moderate. Most Muslims however believe that the remedy for all social, political and moral ills lies in Islam.

A believing Muslim, whether Westerners consider him an extremist or a moderate, will believe that Islam and the Koran have the solution for all of society's ills. Social problems are caused by a lack of Islam. In his worldview, Muslim countries can only repair their problems through Islam. And non-Muslim countries in the Dar al Kufr (Realm of the Infidels), Dar Al Harb (Realm of the Sword) are bound to be even worse off, because they don't follow Islamic law. Which means their only solution is Islam.

In such a scenario, Sharia is inevitable. Because as Western liberals think of social reforms in terms of added government control, Muslims think of reform as added clerical control. This makes Muslims and Socialists seem like natural allies, at least for a time, because both confuse reform with centralization that takes individual liberties. Meanwhile the Western Liberal is deluded enough to think that any application of Sharia law will be moderate, when in fact it will be no such thing. Because the Muslim understanding of the world is radically different than the Western understanding of the world.

For example take the recent statement by a Muslim cleric that blames immodestly dressed women for earthquakes. Such an idea has a basis in Islam. It may seem utterly insane to the Western mind, but it demonstrates a worldview in which every individual action is inherently interconnected with the larger social welfare, (an idea shared by both Muslims and Socialists). And if indeed women not wearing a burka cause earthquakes-- then the greater good demands that they be compelled to wear them. After all what is more important, freedom of dress or people dying in earthquakes?

Variations of that argument will accompany resistance to any Islamic ban. And the only response to it can be that the idea behind it is lunatic and unproven. Yet the former would be construed as denigrating Islam and the latter is a useless point, as there is also no way to disprove that (or any other insane linkage that a cleric might come up with).

If you really doubt that such a thing can happen in the rational West, remember that much of our best and brightest currently believe that cow flatulence and human exhaling is destroying the planet, that gender differences are the product of nurture and that people who share their political views have superior genes. The belief of that Islamic cleric is no more absurd than these, and with enough force and propaganda behind it, is just as likely to be accepted. And much worse things will be as well.

As a country's population rises, it will approach the Sharia tipping point. Sharia law's imposition will be sold as social reforms, just as they are throughout the Muslim world. And since only disruptive forces would be opposed to it, naturally criticizing its implementation would be one of the first bans. There is only one clean way to avoid it. Just as there is only one clean way to avoid a Communist or Nazi takeover. And that is not to have people inside your borders who want to see the country turn into a Nazi, Communist or Islamist state. If you fail to do that, then sooner or later, you will either face a bloody civil war, or/and live under a Communist, Nazi or Islamist state.

Comedy Central has gone too far!

By Findalis of Monkey in the Middle

Hat tip Atlas Shrugs

This is the idea of fun of the Nazis who run Comedy Central:
The Comedy Central website has created an anti-semitically named game there called "I.S.R.A.E.L. Attacks," in which a murderous robot called Israel is called upon to wipe out every cartoon character on the show.
Caving into Islam, promoting Anti-Semitism, what is next?  Promoting cartoons from Hamas as good children's shows?

I am beginning to believe that there is an organized effort in the medi and government to not only delegitimatize Israel, but to demonize Jews.  Thus the rise in Anti-Semitic incidences on American Universities, in the media, and by government officials.

Pakistani Forces Kill Key Taliban Commander In Swat Valley Raid


It's all about tips from the people. We saw this start to really turn the tide in Al Anbar province in Iraq as the Iraqi people started telling U.S. forces and Awakening teams where the bad guys of al Qaeda were hiding, and now, a senior commander of the Taliban was turned in by a civilian tip that led to a Pakistani military raid with the end result of six dead Taliban, including the commander, Ihsanullah alias Pir.

From the report at DAWN:


A key militant commander was killed along with his five comrade-in-arms in two different incidents in Swat on Monday, a security official said. One security man was also wounded in the action. In a major raid, since the end of Operation Rah-i-Rast in July last, security forces surrounded a house in Kanju in Kabal tehsil and after intense 12-hour siege killed a key militant commander, Ihsanullah alias Pir, along with his three fighters. Curfew was imposed in Kanju, Dheri, Koza Banda and surrounding areas The official said the raid was conducted on a tip-off. He described Ihsanullah as a senior militant commander of the rank and stature of Fateh and Ibn-i-Amin, two important leaders of Taliban in Swat.

As we have seen, the Swat Valley was basically cleared out by the Pakistani army quite awhile ago which makes this hit even more significant as you can see from the article what this Taliban commander's role was meant to be:


“Ihsan was sent to organise a new round of insurgency in Swat. We have had intelligence but couldn’t trace him and finally came the tip-off,” the official said.


All too often we've seen the Taliban get cleared from an area, whether it be in Afghanistan or Pakistan, only to send pockets of them back into that area to set up shop again so this is a significant hit against the Taliban and their plans to reinvigorate the Swat Valley.



Key militant commander among six killed in Swat


MINGORA: A key militant commander was killed along with his five comrade-in-arms in two different incidents in Swat on Monday, a security official said. One security man was also wounded in the action.

In a major raid, since the end of Operation Rah-i-Rast in July last, security forces surrounded a house in Kanju in Kabal tehsil and after intense 12-hour siege killed a key militant commander, Ihsanullah alias Pir, along with his three fighters. Curfew was imposed in Kanju, Dheri, Koza Banda and surrounding areas

The official said the raid was conducted on a tip-off. He described Ihsanullah as a senior militant commander of the rank and stature of Fateh and Ibn-i-Amin, two important leaders of Taliban in Swat.

“Ihsan was sent to organise a new round of insurgency in Swat. We have had intelligence but couldn’t trace him and finally came the tip-off,” the official said.

According to unconfirmed reports, Fateh was believed to have been killed in a helicopter gunship attack in Mohmand two months ago while Ibn-i-Amin is also believed to have moved to the tribal region after fleeing his last sanctuary in Bajaur.

The official said that militants fired at security forces and kept them at bay for quite some time, before soldiers managed to go near the house and cause a breach in the wall for action.

One of the militants, he said, blew himself up, while two others were killed as they came out of the house firing at the security forces, while one was captured in wounded position. The official also attributed the recent incidents of target killings to the group hiding in Kanju.

Meanwhile, military sources said a militant commander Anwar and his deputy Sadiq were killed in exchange of fire with security forces in Ghaligi Darra of tehsil Barikot. They belonged to Odigram area. Arms were also recovered from their possession.

KOHAT:



Two militants were killed and a security person was injured during a clash in Zarghun Khel area of Darra Adamkhel on Monday.

Sources said that militants launched a major attack at the security checkpost in Noor Ali Kalay in Zarghun Khel and injured Frontier Corps naib subedar Zaheer.

The FC repulsed the attack and killed two fleeing militants identified as Ayub and Samiullah of Tariq Afridi group of Taliban. Security forces also arrested 11 suspected militants in the area. Helicopter gunships also targeted militants’ hideouts in the mountains of Darra Adamkhel.

LANDI KOTAL:



The political administration of Khyber Agency imposed curfew in parts of Tirah in anticipation of a military operation in the valley.

Officials said that curfew was imposed from Chamkani to Lakar Bara areas. They said that at least 25 suspects were also arrested during a search operation in those areas. Officials, however, did not provide any timeframe of the operation in Tirah. They said that a large number of Taliban had entered Tirah after fleeing Orakzai Agency.

Al Qaeda in Yemen Narrowly Misses Taking Out British Ambassador With Suicide Bomber


The British Ambassador to Yemen narrowly missed being assassinated today by a suicide bomber from the ranks of al Qaeda in Yemen - the Ambassador's convoy was targeted and the explosion injured two Yemeni police escorts while the Ambassador escaped unharmed.

From the report at Times Online:



The British Ambassador to Yemen was attacked by a suicide bomber in the capital, Sanaa, today but escaped unharmed, officials said.

Tim Torlot, 52, a career diplomat who has served in the volatile Arab state since July 2007, was being driven in his armoured vehicle when his two-vehicle convoy was attacked by a suspected al-Qaeda suicide bomber wearing an explosives belt.

"The failed terrorist attack that targeted the British Ambassador in Sanaa carries the fingerprints of al-Qaeda," said the Yemeni Interior Ministry.

Two of Mr Torlot's Yemeni police escort and a bystander were injured in this morning's blast but the bomber — who, witnesses said, was dressed in a school uniform — was the only fatality.
Apparently the Yemeni Interior Ministry isn't as sure this is al Qaeda as I am - give me a break. This attack is just another remind of how chaotic Yemen continues to be and I can't, for the life of me, understand why a country like Britain would even have their embassy open in Yemen at this point in time.



'Suicide bomber' targets British Ambassador to Yemen


The British Ambassador to Yemen was attacked by a suicide bomber in the capital, Sanaa, today but escaped unharmed, officials said.

Tim Torlot, 52, a career diplomat who has served in the volatile Arab state since July 2007, was being driven in his armoured vehicle when his two-vehicle convoy was attacked by a suspected al-Qaeda suicide bomber wearing an explosives belt.

"The failed terrorist attack that targeted the British Ambassador in Sanaa carries the fingerprints of al-Qaeda," said the Yemeni Interior Ministry.

The British Embassy was closed briefly in January after Yemeni intelligence sources said that an al-Qaeda cell close to the capital was planning to attack it and the US Embassy. The Yemeni Army later attacked the cell and killed several of its members.

Two of Mr Torlot's Yemeni police escort and a bystander were injured in this morning's blast but the bomber — who, witnesses said, was dressed in a school uniform — was the only fatality.

Mr Torlot was reportedly about 600 yards away from the embassy in the new part of Sanaa, close to the heavily fortified US Embassy, when the attack happened. He usually travels in an armoured car with an escort vehicle of armed Yemeni police trailing him. The embassy itself is close to a main road, protected by razor wire and sandbagged machinegun posts manned by Yemeni security forces.

Witnesses said that the police escort vehicle was damaged in the explosion.

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office confirmed that the ambassador was unhurt. "We can confirm that there was an incident in Sanaa this morning," it said. "There was a small explosion beside the British Ambassador's car. He was unhurt. No other embassy staff or British nationals were injured."

"The embassy will remain closed to the public for the time being. We advise all British nationals in Yemen to keep a low profile and remain vigilant."

Security was tightened around the embassies in the capital and British and Yemeni investigators were at the scene of the explosion.

Al-Qaeda has been gaining ground in Yemen more than a year, with a new generation of terrorists forming a group called al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, which has mounted many attacks inside the impoverished southern Arabian republic and abroad, including a failed suicide attack on a Saudi prince in charge of fighting terrorism.

The group shot to prominence last December when a 23-year-old Nigerian who had allegedly tried to blow up a US airliner bound for Detroit on Christmas Day said that he had been trained in Yemen. Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab allegedly said that he had been given the explosives device, which was sewn into his underpants, after he ducked out of sight late last year while attending an Arabic-language school in Sanaa and attended an al-Qaeda training camp.

Before that Yemen had been the scene of many attacks, including the boat-borne explosion by suicide bombers against the USS Cole in the port of Aden in 2000, which killed 17 sailors. In 2008 a suicide bomb attack outside the US Embassy in Sanaa killed more than a dozen people, including an American student.

The Yemeni Government, under US and British pressure, has mounted an offensive against al-Qaeda, and the US has ramped up the military aid that it supplies to the country, fearing it could become a new front on the war on terror. Senior clerics in the deeply conservative tribal society have threatened to declare a jihad, or holy war, if foreign troops are deployed inside the country.

The Government of President Saleh is more concerned with fighting a Shia rebellion in the north, which has already dragged Saudi forces into the fray, and a resurgent secessionist movement in the south, once a British colony, than it is with tackling the terrorists.
