Obama Loves America

Lenin loved mother Russia.

Ahkenaten loved Egypt.

The Gracchi loved the Republic.

So did Marius, and Sulla.

Lycurgus loved Sparta

Croesus loved Lydia

Paris, Troy

This list is as long as history.

None of them brought anything but misery and ruin.

Because what they thought of as love was only solipsism.

These people could only love their own vision of something completely different from what came before.

The Gracchi thought they saw injustice, and income inequality and triggered the end of the first great national republic amid a long slide of civil wars.

Ahkenaten saw blasphemy in a great nation and civilization and destroyed one of the greatest dynasties EVER, right to this day.

Lenin found a Czar’s autocracy and injustice and inaugurated a death machine of unparalleled barrenness.

Creosus so loved Lydia before entering battle with Persia he sought an oracle’s reassurance that a great empire would be destroyed. It was.

And if Obama can love our Constitution, our Bill of Rights, our limits to power, and the warts and injustices we struggle so hard to erase within our system, then THAT is his love.

Lenin’s. The Gracchi’s. Ahknaten’s.

Destroyers whose love of the mirror was so great they could not imagine the final result.

Liberal Media Shocked To Learn of Obama's Communist Roots


From Mara Zebest:

Lib media at NYDailyNews is shockedshocked I tell you—to find out that Obama has communist ties via Rudy Giuliani’s recent interview remarks (doubling down on Obama’s anti-American ideology).

The media might want to do some research before dismissing the anti-American actions surrounding the Obama Administration. Maybe start with releasing the LA Times Kalidi tape they are still hiding from the public. By Obama’s own actions he easily broadcasts his anti-American ideology—not only embedded in Communist roots, but also in Islamic roots. The list is endless, but some recent examples as follows:

Egypt Pursuing Criminal Charges Against Obama and Hilary For Aiding Muslim Brotherhood?

Is there any truth to this?

From the Conservative Tribune:
President Barack Obama and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took great care of the Muslim Brotherhood while the terrorist group was briefly in charge of Egypt following the Arab Spring. 
Though the group is no longer in power, as they were ousted by the Egyptian military, Egypt hasn’t forgotten the aid and comfort Obama provided the terrorist group during their short reign. Egypt has officially charged both Obama and Clinton with conspiring with the Muslim Brotherhood. 
These serious charges aren’t a stretch, as Obama has been seen protecting the group in various ways, including placing them on a “hands off” list to allow entrance into the United States and even an invite into his own administration. 
While the group controlled Egypt, Obama made sure that they had plenty of weapons, including tanks, light and heavy arms and even planes — to the tune of billions of dollars. 
The Muslim Brotherhood is all about implementing Shariah law in Western countries, and the United States is no exception. They wouldn’t hesitate to harm or kill any Christian or Jew who aren’t willing to accept or share their radical faith. We’ve already seen several examples of Shariah spreading to the West — and it’s only getting worse. 
Egyption lawmakers charged Obama and Clinton in two separate complaints with the conspiracy charge. For the first complaint, Obama was officially named as “an accessory to crimes committed by the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt.” 
The charge is serious, with specific details about his accessory role, that said he, “cooperated, incited, and assisted the armed elements of the Muslim Brotherhood in the commission of crimes.” 
The other charge, against Clinton, accuses her of working with Naglaa Mahmood, the wife of the ousted Muslim Brotherhood president Mohammed Morsi, in an attempt to overthrow General Abdel Fatah Al-Sisi, the current leader of Egypt (H/T Western Journalism). 
Mahmood has since admitted that she’s worked closely with the Clintons, dating back to the 1980s — including numerous phone calls between the two since then, hundreds of which she has recorded. 
Perhaps the most serious charge against the two involves their attempted bribe to the tune of $8 billion which was an attempt to sway the Brotherhood to open up part of the Sinai Peninsula to Hamas groups to make it easier to attack Israel.

“it’s more important that American government operate efficiently than it is to preserve America’s checks and balances.”

The answer of the 31% of the American people??

More than one-quarter of likely U.S. voters think President Obama should ignore federal court rulings “if they are standing in the way of actions he feels are important for the country,” according to Rasmussen Reports polling data released Friday.
An even bigger segment of Americans polled — 31 percent — said they believe Obama should take action overriding Congress on “important” issues and that it’s more important that American government operate “efficiently” than it is to preserve America’s checks and balances.
There was a distinct partisan split among the 800 likely voters polled.
On the issue of Obama ignoring court orders, 81 percent of Republicans and 67 percent of unaffiliated voters said the president should not be able to disregard inconvenient court cases, but among Democrats, 43 percent said Obama should be able to brush aside judges’ decisions that don’t go his way.
Now, there is only one answer to this …

We Are Moving Into a World of Horrors Beyond Analogy

From Mark Steyn:
Marie Harf assures CNN that her argument is "too nuanced" for you rubes to appreciate, with its exciting plans for community-college retraining programs in al-Baghdadi and midnight basketball in Raqaa. Sure, they don't have enough basketballs, so they have to use severed heads. But c'mon, it's a start... 
If you want the difference between the worldview that sets up an International Center for Outstanding Achievement in the Field of Extremism and the real world distilled to a single Tweet, consider this contribution from senior pajama boy at Vox.com, Max Fisher: People who think Christian sectarian militias are the solution to Iraq's problems could stand to read a history of the Lebanese civil war. 
Richard Fernandez does a pretty good job analyzing the particular defects of this comparison, but give Mr Fisher credit: when it comes to preening, condescending analogy-deployment, at least, unlike the President, he's come up with one that's within living memory. Rather than the substance of his "argument", it's the near perfect metaphorical selfie-stick of preening attitudinal pose I find most interesting. 
As it happens, being an old-school imperialist, I read a lot of history. No doubt I "could stand to read" more, as Fisher advises. Before the civil war, Beirut was known as "the Paris of the east". 
Then things got worse. As worse and worser as they got, however, it was not in-your-face genocidal, with regular global broadcasts of mass beheadings and live immolations. In that sense, the salient difference between Lebanon then and ISIS now is the mainstreaming of depravity. Which is why the analogies don't apply. 
We are moving into a world of horrors beyond analogy. 
A lot of things have gotten worse. If Beirut is no longer the Paris of the east, Paris is looking a lot like the Beirut of the west - with regular, violent, murderous sectarian attacks accepted as a feature of daily life. 
In such a world, we could all "stand to read" a little more history. But in Nigeria, when you're in the middle of history class, Boko Haram kick the door down, seize you and your fellow schoolgirls and sell you into sex slavery. 
Boko Haram "could stand to read" a little history, but their very name comes from a corruption of the word "book" - as in "books are forbidden", reading is forbidden, learning is forbidden, history is forbidden. 
Well, Nigeria... Wild and crazy country, right? Oh, I don't know. A half-century ago, it lived under English Common Law, more or less. In 1960 Chief Nnamdi Azikiwe, second Governor-General of an independent Nigeria, was the first Nigerian to be appointed to the Queen's Privy Council. It wasn't Surrey, but it wasn't savagery. 
Like Lebanon, Nigeria got worse, and it's getting worser. That's true of a lot of places. In the Middle East, once functioning states - whether dictatorial or reasonably benign - are imploding. In Yemen, the US has just abandoned its third embassy in the region. 
According to the President of Tunisia, one third of the population of Libya has fled to Tunisia. That's two million people. According to the UN, just shy of four million Syrians have fled to Turkey, Jordan, Lebanon and beyond. 
In Iraq, Christians and other minorities are forming militias because they don't have anywhere to flee (Syria? Saudia Arabia?) and their menfolk are facing extermination and their women gang-rapes and slavery. 
These people "could stand to read" a little history, too. But they don't have time to read history because they're too busy living it: the disintegration of post-World War Two Libya; the erasure of the Anglo-French Arabian carve-up; the extinction of some of the oldest Christian communities on earth; the metastasizing of a new, very 21st-century evil combining some of the oldest barbarisms with a cutting-edge social-media search-engine optimization strategy.

Marie Harf Wrote Thesis on How Conservative Support for Israel Complicates US Foreign Policy

From the Daily Caller:
State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf wrote her college honors thesis on “how conservative evangelical support for Israel complicates U.S. foreign policy,” according to Indiana University records. 
Harf’s thesis further illustrates the collegiate thinking in an Obama administration that has alienated a key American ally in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. 
Harf, 33, previously worked on Obama’s 2012 campaign. Harf’s Indiana University honors political science professor said that Harf did not plan to pursue political science like her professor father Jim, but that she ended up becoming “pretty good” at it. 
“I always had a soft spot for Jim, since he first helped me realize I might be good at this line of work, and for Marie, who initially had no intention of following in her father’s footsteps but who turned out to pretty good at political analysis herself,” the professor said.

Islamic State Threatens To Send Its Fighters To Attack Rome . . . Italy Says U.N. Will Protect Them

"The United Nations Will Save Me"

The UN and whose army?

From the Washington Post:
In a recently released video that showed the killing of 21 Egyptian Christians in Libya, the Islamic State made an ominous warning: “Today we are south of Rome,” one masked militant said. “We will conquer Rome with Allah’s permission.” 
To make matters worse, Rita Katz, director of SITE Intelligence group, pointed out that supporters of the Islamic State have begun using a hashtag to warn of their plan to reach “Rome.” 
Exactly what “Rome” means to the Islamic State is unclear – some experts say it may actually be a reference to the United States or Turkey, or even the West in general. 
But Italy is worried. Libya is just a short boat ride across the Mediterranean. 
Thousands of refugees already make this journey to Italian shores every year. What’s to stop the Islamic State?
http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/02/17/italy-fears-isis-invasion-from-libya.htmlWhat, Rome worried?
In fact, Renzi didn’t specify exactly who would wield that military might, and, two days later, when no one volunteered to lead the charge, he backtracked. 
“It’s not the time for a military intervention,” Renzi told an Italian television station Monday night and said the United Nations had to lead the way. 
“Our proposal is to wait for the U.N. Security Council. The strength of the U.N. is decidedly superior to that of the radical militias.”
I like how the Washington Post says, "Exactly what "Rome" means to the Islamic State is unclear".

Here, I'll help you out WaPo:

Denial - Delusion - Defeatism

In one short week, we have see the Obama Administration show the world it's denial of Islamic terrorism, the delusion that it can be defeated by giving the terrorist's jobs, and the blatant admission that we can not win the war against Islamic terrorism by killing them.

How will History judge such insanity?

And how will History this time when an inhuman movement that makes the Nazi SS look like the Boy Scouts is not confronted and defeated.

If Islamic terrorism is not stopped NOW - then this will be an indictment of Civilization itself.

I wonder what our grandchildren will say?

Interesting Observation

Made by Vox (dated February 19, 2015):
Obama should stop pretending Islamist terrorism has nothing to do with Islam

...Obama, by refusing to acknowledge that there is such a thing as Islamist extremism, has tied his own hands; he cannot draw a distinction between Islam and Islamist extremism if he pretends the latter does not exist....
Much of the essay contains twisted "logic," but that particular sentence is interesting.

By not identifying ISIS as a manifestation of Islamic extremism, Barack Hussein Obama has condemned Islam itself.  Has he considered that aspect? 

Or maybe it doesn't matter.  Members of the Cult of Obama are not particularly logical in their thinking.

Marine Le Pen Claims ANTIFA ("Anti-Fascist" Organization) is responsible for the desecrations at French cemeteries, the Jewish and Christian ones

She says they were trying to frame the "Far Right".

I think she may be correct in her claims.

I don't think it was Muslims. The desecrations happened in areas of France which are not known for Islamic infiltration.

By the way, Antifa and other Leftists organizations are disproportionately anti-Israel that their sentiments are essentially Nazi already.

It is not a big change for such people to take one further step and begin painting swastikas on Jewish tombstones.

Man ‘dragged through street, beaten with metal pole and filmed performing forced sex act in east London’

From the Evening Standard:
A man in his 40s was beaten with a metal pole and filmed being forced to perform a sex act during a violent assault in east London. 
Police said the brutal late-night attack began outside East Ham Tube station when the victim told his aggressors he didn't have any cigarettes he could give them. 
The pair punched him multiple times, robbing his backpack, ID and bank cards before "brazenly" dragging him past shocked members of the public to a cash point. 
When the victim could not withdraw any money, the assailants resumed their savage attack. 
The two men - described by police as Mediterranean in appearance and aged between 20 and 22 with dark hair - then took him to a nearby park where they beat him with a metal pole before making him perform sex acts on them while they filmed. 
Police were alerted after a passer-by heard the man's cries for help, but the suspects had fled before officers arrived at the scene.

France: 371 Attacks on Soldiers Attempting To Protects Nations Synagogues and Jewish Schools Since January

GalliaWatch: 371 Attacks on French Soldiers

Since January 15 the French army's "Opération Sentinelle" has protected 722 Jewish schools and synagogues, some 24/7 even when the establishments were empty. 
The operation came to be regarded as too dangerous for the soldiers who were regularly targets of attacks. Over time the men were worn out.  
The army has reported 371 incidents perpetrated against the soldiers standing guard in front of the protected sites. The Defense Ministry has announced that the men will become more mobile, rendering them less vulnerable.  
The army noted that "reconnoitering, the taking of snapshots and films" by jihadists preparing future attacks had been going on. 
"Fourteen serious attacks, with a knife, laser, even blows with heavy sticks," were reported. One jihadist tried to grab the rifle of a soldier on patrol at Trocadéro (Paris) before being caught (and probably released).

Islam is represented by Radical Islamist Aggression as much Simon Legree represented the South

"There are few, I believe, in this enlightened age, who will not acknowledge that slavery as an institution is a moral and political evil." Robert E Lee, 1856

"Our duty as Muslim scholars is to respond to those who attack our religion through sound logic and persuasion, which makes any rational person see that Islam gives each person his due and that Islam extends its hand in peace to anyone who extends its hand in peace to Islam." - Sheikh Mohammed Sayyed al Tantawi

Neither of these statements by ‘leadership’ are a ripple in the ocean of their times.

Why this is the inarguable fact tells us all about what the tsunamis of the time were or ARE.
The actions of the Muslims to be taken today around the synagogue in Oslo are important PRECISELY because those brave AND JUST people are so exceptional.


Nor is it the representation of the ‘news’ in the west which is presenting a distorted view of what is happening in this world.

This week alone has seen 66 executions via beheading and burning alive of captives publicized not by Islam hating media, but by the executioners using public tools to tell the world who they are and why they act.

The FACT is that the ascendant forms of Islam, both Shia and Sunni revolve around those whose actions are taken because they are believed to be their personal responsibilities before god, as given to them in a perfect document, ‘written’ by god, and therefore true and unchangeable in it’s original form for all time.

That this is so comes not from Al Azhar, or Bin Baz through the filter of newspapers, but in the conversation with real people in the Gulf I have had since 2001.

These people have no choice if they are to follow god. Salafi. Shia. Just following god. That’s how they see it.

To us we are seeing slaughter over the arithmetic number of prophets.
It seems ridiculous.

There are those, like President Obama, who wish us to believe these people are wrong and just need a better ‘economy’ and outlet for their grievances. A bigger flat screen? A Kitchen Aid mixer? Healthy flank steak and not 73% ground chuck.

The mocking we have seen over this, and it is manifest, MEANS something.

If I take Obama’s actions as being for our benefit, then I would say he is trying to say whatever he has to, to avoid a needless war with a billion people. But it’s a billion people who are doing NOTHING in their numbers about the wrongs these wrongheaded actors are committing, and who even if they ARE in the extreme minority WILL STILL PROVOKE WAR.

A war which will, sooner or later find a president here who will act will final and decisive means.
When we, here, recognized the segregation of the south for what it was, THE PUBLIC MIND WAS CONSUMED with change. Not just MLK, not just George Wallace, but all our attention was focused on the meaning and execution of JUSTICE.

That the people of the USA got behind real justice resulted in the KKK becoming a joke. A Purim like representation of evil, and it prevented a REAL SOCIETAL LEVEL REVOLT

Oslo’s Muslim stand represents one of the few moments when this can be said today to be against the tide of the time. The mass protests we see instead have been over the evil that personal liberty is, that freedoms represent, that sharia and Islam alone can repair.

Because the Quran, the perfect and unchangeable truth for all time, says so.

"African slavery, as it exists in the United States, is a moral, a social, and a political blessing." ~ Jefferson Davis
THAT represents the tide of this time and the tide of 1856.

That is how it is, and just as no high minded prattling from Robert E Lee could beat back the institution and societal needs of slavery so no unimaginably unrealistic expression from even the President of the USA can do anything but sink to the bottom of the ocean.

Recognizing objective reality as it is, is the first step to avoiding trouble and surviving
If you are standing on the beach and the water is pulling away from from you for hundreds of yards, the ocean level is not dropping.That line on the horizon?

ISIS Threatens Scud Missile Attack On Rome

Voice of America reported: 
Islamic State militants are goading Italy on their social media accounts by urging jihadist recruits to go to Libya in preparation for attacks on Rome, saying the strategic location of the conflict-torn North African country is perfect. 
The online propaganda offensive comes as Italian authorities ramp up security measures to protect landmark sites, outlining plans to put 4,800 soldiers on the streets in Rome and in other major cities. 
Counter-terror officials say they worry about attacks on newspapers, synagogues and embassies – and they are mounting extra security patrols around the Vatican. 
Italy has been in the grip of growing alarm following the mass execution last week of 21 Coptic Christians by extremists affiliated with the so-called Islamic State on the Libyan shore of the Mediterranean Sea, some 480 kilometers (300 miles) from Italy’s mainland. 
Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi has urged the United Nations and Western powers to consider mounting an intervention to halt Libya’s descent into chaos. 
The North African country is riven by two blocs of competing militias, which are backing rival governments in Tripoli and Tobruk, with jihadists exploiting the anarchy. 
Recruitment calls Islamic State militants appear to be doing everything they can to stoke alarm in Italy. 
Since the black-clad, masked militants threatened to take their war to Rome, jihadist propagandists have been posting calls for followers to head to Libya rather than Syria, the main draw for foreign fighters. 
Islamic State leader Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi last month announced the group’s expansion to Libya and urged Muslims to travel there. 
Many of the participants in what is clearly now becoming a coordinated social media campaign have been stressing the advantages of Libya as a major arena in the jihad against Europe. 
They are citing its proximity to southern European cities such as Athens and Rome, say researchers with the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), a U.S.-based non-profit specializing in monitoring online jihadist activity. 
One IS supporter even argued that the distance between Libya and Italy allows Scud missiles to be fired at Rome, adding a sketch to demonstrate his claim.

WTF? MSNBC Guest: Muslim “Kids Are Being Executed” In America

Well, maybe if Obama got us jobs and made us feel welcome, we'd stop killing Muslim children left and right.

Right, MR?

From Newsbusters:
Hardly a week passes that we don’t learn of another mass execution committed in the Mideast by the medieval Islamist thugs in ISIS. 
But did you know that Muslims children are being executed in the United States? 
It must be true because I heard it last night on “The Rachel Maddow Show” and, no, it didn’t come from defrocked anchor Brian Williams. 
Maddow was talking about the “Countering Violent Extremism” summit at the White House with Linda Sarsour, “advocacy and civic engagement coordinator” at the National Network for Arab American Communities, when Sarsour made the startling claim.

Grover Norquist's Islamist connections make him unsuitable for NRA membership

Norquist's ties to Islamofascists have risen up as a subject for debate once again, and he's trying to defend himself by calling Frank Gaffney a nutcase:
Americans for Tax Reform (ATR) president Grover Norquist has written a letter to several members of the NRA’s board of directors fervently denying allegations of his ties to Muslim Brotherhood leaders as “conspiracies.”

Norquist is currently facing re-election for his position on the NRA’s board of directors, all while these accusations against him have come under renewed attention—and could dominate discussion of his NRA role in the coming weeks.

In the letter obtained by Breitbart News, Norquist accuses Center for Security Policy (CSP) president Frank Gaffney, a former official in Ronald Reagan’s Pentagon, of being a “stalker” he has had to endure for over a decade. Norquist’s letter comes as journalist and blogger Lee Stranahan—formerly of Breitbart News, now an independent journalist working for the new media product “Brought To Light”—alleged deeper ties between Norquist and radical Muslims. [...]

Norquist accused Gaffney of being someone who “spins conspiracy theories” that he is gay, a Muslim or “responsible for the Bush foreign policy failures.”

“For the record, No. No. and No,” Norquist wrote. “One of his staffers told me I was part of the Russian Jewish Mafia. (Also no, but I think that would pay better.)”
Man, he sure is resorting to liberal-style talking points, and very desperately at that. Norquist's accusations against Gaffney are not only cartoonish, they reveal he sides with a prior president who actually showed a lot of weakness with encroaching sharia back on the home turf.
“We reveal that powerful Republican insider Grover Norquist has close, previously unreported, ties to Palestinian anti-Israel activists,” Stranahan says to open the broadcast. “We’ll show you that Norquist has professional and family connections that stretch back decades that have been unknown until now because Norquist himself appears to have kept them quiet.”

Stranahan walked listeners through what had previously been reported about Norquist’s ties to Islamists and how he founded the Islamic Free Market Institute—Islamic Institute for short—with Khaled Saffuri. “But, Brought To Light can now reveal there is another co-founder of the Islamic Institute, one who has never been reported on before, a man named Majed Tomeh,” Stranahan said.
Continue reading more at the link. Men like Norquist are not qualified to work in the NRA with his shady connections, and he should be expelled from their board. Concerned members of the NRA should also lobby the board to remove him from their staff.

“We have not defeated the idea. We do not even understand the idea.”

Major General Michael K. Nagata, the Special Operations commander for the United States in the Middle East commenting on the appeal, popularity and success of ISIS.
Of course not, the civilian commander of all of your forces believes social grievances are the source. You, Genl Nagata cannot even UTTER the name of the idea, for if you do, your career is OVER.
The Atlantic:
The group seized Mosul, Iraq, last June, and already rules an area larger than the United Kingdom
Bin Laden viewed his terrorism as a prologue to a caliphate he did not expect to see in his lifetime. His organization was flexible, operating as a geographically diffuse network of autonomous cells. The Islamic State, by contrast, requires territory to remain legitimate, and a top-down structure to rule it. (Its bureaucracy is divided into civil and military arms, and its territory into provinces.)We are misled in a second way, by a well-intentioned but dishonest campaign to deny the Islamic State’s medieval religious nature.

The most-articulate spokesmen for that position are the Islamic State’s officials and supporters themselves. They refer derisively to “moderns.” In conversation, they insist that they will not—cannot—waver from governing precepts that were embedded in Islam by the Prophet Muhammad and his earliest followers. They often speak in codes and allusions that sound odd or old-fashioned to non-Muslims, but refer to specific traditions and texts of early Islam.

To take one example: In September, Sheikh Abu Muhammad al-Adnani, the Islamic State’s chief spokesman, called on Muslims in Western countries such as France and Canada to find an infidel and “smash his head with a rock,” poison him, run him over with a car, or “destroy his crops.” To Western ears, the biblical-sounding punishments—the stoning and crop destruction—juxtaposed strangely with his more modern-sounding call to vehicular homicide. (As if to show that he could terrorize by imagery alone, Adnani also referred to Secretary of State John Kerry as an “uncircumcised geezer.”)

But Adnani was not merely talking trash. His speech was laced with theological and legal discussion, and his exhortation to attack crops directly echoed orders from Muhammad to leave well water and crops alone—unless the armies of Islam were in a defensive position, in which case Muslims in the lands of kuffar, or infidels, should be unmerciful, and poison away.

The reality is that the Islamic State is Islamic. Very Islamic. Yes, it has attracted psychopaths and adventure seekers, drawn largely from the disaffected populations of the Middle East and Europe. But the religion preached by its most ardent followers derives from coherent and even learned interpretations of Islam.

Obama and the Muslim Gang Sign (Shahada Finger Sign)

From the American Thinker:
Is President Obama a Muslim? A lot has been written about this, but if photographs speak louder than words, then a photo taken at last August’s U.S.-African Leaders’ Summit in Washington D.C. might shed considerable light. It shows Barack Hussein Obama flashing the one-finger affirmation of Islamic faith to dozens of African delegates.

Barack Hussein Obama flashes the Muslim shahada to delegates of the US-African Leaders Conference in Washington DC in August 2014.

The Associated Press took this astonishing photo as the African dignitaries joined Obama, who hosted the event, in a State Department auditorium for a group photograph. It was published in an article in Britain’s Daily Mail, and it was the only use ever of the photo. 
The one-finger display is the distinctive Muslim gang sign: The index finger points straight up while the thumb wraps underneath and presses against the digital phalange of the middle finger. The remaining fingers are squeezed against the palm in order to highlight the extended forefinger. The extended finger is symbolic of the one-God concept of Muhammad and is understood by all believers to be a symbolic shahada, the Muslim affirmation of faith: There is but one God and Muhammad is his messenger.
Thus when believers stick their index finger in the air, they demonstrate they are partisans of Muhammad’s God concept. And they also affirm their belief in Muhammad’s claim he was the interface between God and man. They also demonstrate they are part of the umma, the exclusive transtribal supertribe of believers that Muhammad started 1,400 years ago. 
With his forefinger in the air, Obama affirmed his membership in this tribe.
Just Like These Guys - ISIS fighter displays the gang sign
The Daily Mail editors did not understand what they were looking at. They captioned it “finger wagging” by Obama. But the African dignitaries understood, and a range of reactions can be detected among the ones who observed the gesture: amusement, surprise, curiosity, disapproval, contempt. 
Note the reactions of Abdelilah Berkirane, the prime minister of Morroco pictured just behind Obama’s left shoulder, and Ibrahim Boubacas Keita, the president of Mali in white garb and hat. They are Muslims through and through, and they are all smiles. They knew what Obama’s upright forefinger meant.
The reaction of Togo president Faure Gnassingbe, at the top row second to the left, is less approving. Through his face you can read the mind of this Sorbonne- and George Washington University educated leader. His mind is screaming, “You gotta be kidding!”
Gnassingbe’s country is squeezed between Benin and the Ivory Coast and is not far from Nigeria and its Boko Haram plague -- perhaps a two-hour flight in a slow Cessna from Togo’s capital to the Nigerian capital, less than an hour in something faster. At the time of the Washington conference, Boko Haram’s leader Abubakar Shekau had just declared Borno State in northeastern Nigeria as the seat of his caliphate. Massacres of entire villages were taking place; only a few months earlier nearly three hundred girls were abducted from a Borno secondary school. 
Togo has seven million people, 50 percent animists, 30 percent Christian. The remainder are Muslims, part of the umma. Gnassingbe and all other non-Muslims of Togo have reason to worry about radicalization of some of these members of the transtribal supertribe of Muhammad who reside among them. And so his look of disdain. “You gotta be kidding.”

Imam Asks, "What's Wrong With a Man Telling His Woman What To Do?"

His reasoning is awesome.

You see, it's not the husband telling the wife what to do, no. It's Mohammed telling the wife what to do, because the Hadith tell the husband to tell the wife what to do.


And, if it is Mohammed, well, then who is to tell a Muslim man it is wrong?

Well, I guess it's up to the Infidel Blogger's Alliance.

Hey Imam, Mohammed was a schizophrenic warlord who hallucinated that he had visions of Satan, but then realized it would be better for him if he told you guys it was, not Satan, but "Allah" ....

... and "Allah" is Satan.

There, we set you straight.

Hayao Miyazaki goes defeatist again

Anime scriptwriter/producer Miyazaki has decided to join the side of those who don't think Charlie Hebdo should've satirized Mohammed:
Speaking to Japanese media and reported on the Kotaku blog, Miyazaki said of the attacks: “For me, I think it’s a mistake to make caricatures of what different cultures worship. It’s a good idea to stop doing that.”

His comments go against much of the sentiment in the wake of the attacks, which is that while Charlie Hebdo’s cartoons were arguably offensive, the magazine’s right to publish them must be protected and championed.

Miyazaki added that satirists should focus on targets closer to home: “First and foremost, [caricatures] should be made of your own country’s politicians; it just looks suspect to go after political leaders from other countries.”
Well gee, they do it all the time there. Point: the "prophet" of Islam dwelled in the 7th century, not today. Still, if that's what he thinks, then why doesn't he complain about all the American and European press sources who constantly attack Israel's right-wing politicians for all the wrong reasons?

This is nothing new coming from Miyazaki. He was against the Iraq war, and even in his own anime films, he can't seem to make up his mind on various issues.

Since we're on the subject, a Japanese company that translated nazi/communist screeds is now coming up with a manga version of the Koran. And to make matters worse, their press release doesn't inspire confidence they'll be honest about it:
The Koran is the foundation of the daily life and ideology of people who believe in the teachings of Islam. The name Islam is often heard in the daily news, but because we Japanese aren't usually familiar with it, a perverted image [of Islam] as abstemious or linked to terrorism is liable to persist. So what kind of teachings do [Muslims] actually believe in? What are they thinking about? To understand the modern international community and Islam, let's try to experience the scriptures where all that is written down.
We already know about the modern world community; it's the Koran we don't. But from what East Press is saying here, I don't think you can count on them to translate it honestly and admit what turns up inside is horrific.

A pretty weird way of saying he now "loves" America

Ultra-leftist Andy Khouri, who recently announced he was quitting his position as an editor for leftist Comics Alliance, posted some odd tweets a while ago:

His idea? That's more like hinting what he envisions Americans and the USA should be like, which he remains shrouded about. Note how he technically admits he once hated the USA, but his attitude suggests it's anything but changed. Same for his view of Israel.

Gee, if that's all he can say about Palin, then he sure isn't being very sincere.

Oh, very funny. Some could easily argue that, with al-Walid bin Talal lurking in the background, they are RINO. One more reason why his beef with Fox is mysterious. I guess he's just so bored, he can't find anything better to do, like play a game of chess or something.

Muslims Surround Synagogue in Norway

Norwegian Muslims plan ‘ring of peace’ to protect Oslo synagogue

,,, to HELP for once.
Islam is about protecting our brothers and sisters, regardless of which religion they belong to. Islam is about rising above hate and never sinking to the same level as the haters. Islam is about defending each other. Muslims want to show that we deeply deplore all types of hatred of Jews, and that we are there to support them. 
We will therefore create a human ring around the synagogue on Saturday 21 February. Encourage everyone to come!
Just as long as their Ring of Peace does not become a Crescent of Embrace.

Mark Steyn: ‘You have to choose between liberty and mass Muslim immigration

The more Islamic a society gets, the less free speech it has – the less intellectual inquiry, artistic achievement, contrarian spirit. 
Most western Muslims are not willing themselves to open fire on synagogues or Lars Vilks, but they help maintain the shriveled definition of acceptable expression that helps license the fanatics of Copenhagen and Paris. 
Muslims in Europe, North America and Australia will pay lip service to “free speech”, and then promptly re-define it as excluding speech that “blasphemes” or “insults” their faith – which is to say them. 
Which is to say the great vulgar, brawling, free-for-all of free societies does not apply to them. 
So, when, say, France’s Muslim population reaches 20 per cent, you will need to have the support of three-quarters of the remaining 80 per cent to maintain even a bare popular majority in favor of free speech.

Italy puts 5,000 soldiers on the streets amid fears of Islamic State attack

From the Express:
The troops will guard sensitive sites and targets, including in Rome where around 500 members of the military will be deployed. 
In the Italian capital the soldiers will help guard Jewish schools, the city's synagogue and diplomatic residences. 
The measures, announced after a meeting of military and security officials, will be implemented until at least June. 
Authorities consider Rome particularly sensitive because it is home to the Vatican.

ISIS threatens to send 500,000 migrants to Europe as a ‘psychological weapon’

ISIS has threatened to flood Europe with half a million migrants from Libya in a ‘psychological’ attack against the West, it was claimed today. 
Transcripts of telephone intercepts published in Italy claim to provide evidence that ISIS is threatening to send 500,000 migrants simultaneously out to sea in hundreds of boats in a ‘psychological weapon’ against Europe if there is military intervention against them in Libya. 
Many would be at risk of drowning with rescue services unable to cope. But authorities fear that if numbers on this scale arrived, European cities could witness riots. 
Separately, the militants hope to cement their control of Libya then cross the Mediterranean disguised as refugees, according to letters seen by Quilliam the anti-terror group, reported by the Telegraph.

Obama Tells “Violent Extremism” Summit U.S.Will Beat Jihadists With “Job Training”

BARACK OBAMA: “If we’re going to prevent people from being susceptible to the false promises of extremism, than the international community has to offer something better. The United States intends to do its part. We will keep promoting development and growth that is broadly shared so more people can provide for their families. We’ll keep leading a global effort against corruption because the culture of the bribe had to be replaced by good governance that doesn’t favor certain groups over others. Countries have to truly invest in the education and skills and job training that our extraordinary young people need. By the way, that’s boys and girls and men and women because countries will not be truly successful if half their populations are denied opportunity.”

Breaking News: ISIS and Boko Haram Join Forces in Libya to Move On Tunisia

Libyan premier Abdallah Al Thani told Tunisian radio Express FM that Isis and Boko Haram members have joined or are about to join terrorist groups in Libya and added that the latter are getting close to the border with Tunisia.
With regard to the Egyptian military intervention, Al Thani said that the aerial bombardments against Isis positions in Libya were carried out with the approval of the Libyan government and that the United Nations Security Council refused to arm the Libyan state in its fight against terrorism.
Meanwhile, Tunisia has deployed military units along its border with Libya both on the ground and at sea and the army has been reinforced with units from the national guard and customs, in order to defend the country from “possible threats to its territorial integrity” and “prevent any attempt of infiltration by terrorists” said ministry of defense spokesman, colonel Belhassen Oueslati.

‘Save The Last Bullet For Yourself': SAS Will Not Be Taken Alive By ISIS

Elite British forces in the SAS have been told not to allow the Islamic State to take them alive, according to the Daily Star. Special Forces have been ordered to “fight to the last man” with commanders telling them “save the last bullet for yourselves”.
The SAS have been operating in ISIS-controlled territory for some time, but the new rules were issued after the brutal murder of a Jordanian pilot. Lieutenant Muath al-Kasaesbeh was burned alive earlier this month, after his plane was downed.
A source said: “The SAS have been told that if they are captured they can expect to be tortured before being beheaded, disembowelled or burned alive. They know there is virtually no chance of being rescued.
“Everyone taking part in the Iraq mission knows the risks. Most of the guys would never let themselves be taken prisoner – not by Islamic State (IS).”
As a result they will take their own lives if they are “surrounded and without hope of being rescued”. Commanders have warned the SAS it would be impossible to rescue them because the militants move prisoners daily.
They have suggested a “quick end is preferable to a long and painful death”. By killing themselves the SAS would also deny ISIS an important propaganda victory. The Islamic State have become famed for their well-produced but gruesome execution videos.
Victims are often forced to read out messages denouncing their country’s actions in the Middle East. In at least one case a hostage was forced to blame his own relatives for his beheading because they were in the American military.
If an SAS soldier was taken alive the source said he would expect the Royal Air Force to launch an airstrike against the building they were being held in. He said: “If you’re captured and can’t be rescued then you would want the RAF to come along and drop a very large bomb. A quick end is preferable to a long and painful death.”
The source also claimed that bombing any captured SAS soldier would be the “honourable thing to do”. Sources told the Daily Star Sunday that SAS troops have almost been captured on two occasions but managed to escape with the help of a US Reaper drone which halted a jihadi attack.
The source said: “As a member of the SAS you know that you are going to be executed by the enemy if you’re captured.
“That’s why we carry pistols. It’s our secondary weapon. But it also allows us the choice of topping ourselves when all hope has gone. Better that than giving away where your mates are operating.”
