Occupy Wall Street-steal from the rich and give to the poor, Re: Occupy Wall Streets Descent From Utopia To “Lord Of The Flies”, New York Post, October 30, 2011

Monday, October 31st, 2011

Like any brand that wants to be successful Occupy Wall Street needs a good tag line, especially now that its descending into chaos and crime and ordinary people are getting fed up with it.

How about ‘Occupy Wall Street-steal from the rich and give to the poor’?

Except that most of the rich people protesters are talking about stealing from aren’t really rich at all and most of the poor people protesters are talking about giving to aren’t really poor at all, except in relative terms of course.

Except that most of the protesters don’t recognize or understand that and never have.

Except that most of the tent camps are filled with misfits and ne’er-do-wells who are there to cadge free meals and accommodation and aren’t really protesting anything at all.

Stealing from the rich and giving to the poor. That’s sure to solve our economic and social problems isn’t it?

Steal from the rich and give to the poor. Nothing points out the protesters economic illiteracy, ignorance of history and lazy or non-existent thinking more than that. It really is a very apt tag line. Most of the protesters are whiners, complainers and takers with a false sense of entitlement and victimhood who thinks the world owes them a living and refuse to take any personal responsibility for whatever predicament they’re in. They’re not interested in income redistribution unless its someone else’s income being redistributed to them. They’re useful idiots for the fanatics and ideologues out there, religious and otherwise, who are manipulating and using them for their own ends and are no more interested in the plight of the real poor than I am in flying to the moon. No one can take them seriously because their simpleminded solutions aren’t really solutions at all. They are very trite and one big cliche’, nothing more.

A big cliche’ that’s fouling our streets and bringing garbage dumps and rats to our public spaces. A big cliche’ that’s a mockery of democracy and the rule of law. A big cliche’ that’s costing taxpayers a fortune in policing and sanitation costs, among other things.

Stealing from the rich and giving to the poor…it fits on all kinds of levels.

Sadly.

Thanks to Palestinians and their Arab/Islamic brethren Israel’s path is clear, Re: Ashdod mayor: ‘Ashdod is under attack, without a doubt’, Jerusalem Post, October 29, 2011

Saturday, October 29th, 2011

At least twenty rockets were fired from Gaza into southern Israel by Palestinian murderers earlier today, with more no doubt to come before the firing is stopped. Many of them landed in Ashdod, a major Israeli city in the countries south, including one that hit an empty school. There have been many injuries, one man has died to date and property damage has been extensive. There could easily have been mass casualties and there may indeed be when the attacks continue. Today’s rocket attacks on Israel followed unprovoked rocket attacks last Thursday. Islamic Jihad’s al-Quds Brigades have taken full responsibility for all of the attacks.

Israel bombed an Islamic Jihad training camp in Gaza in retaliation, killing five people including a Palestinian commander and four murderers. Later on Israel also attacked a cell involved in firing some of the rockets, killing an additional two murderers.

The mayor of Ashdod has said his city is under attack, which is indisputably true. It isn’t only Ashdod which is under attack however. The whole country is under attack as well and saying that it isn’t is like saying the United States isn’t under attack because rockets are only falling on Miami or some other southern U.S. city.

Israel has no choice but to respond in force because that is the only thing which will stop the rocket attacks on Ashdod and prevent further attacks on other Israeli cities as well. Bombing training camps and taking out individual cells won’t do it. Palestinians have to be shown that they will pay a very heavy price for attacks like this and only a massive and overwhelming Israeli military response will do that. Strength and force are the only things they understand and respect and strength and force are the only things that will prevent further attacks.

If Israel doesn’t respond in force it will be perceived as weakness on its part and only lead to more attacks on Israeli cities and civilians. Israeli weakness means Israeli death and destruction and unless Israelis want to commit national suicide they will attack in force very soon and let the Palestinians know in no uncertain terms why they are doing it.

They should also let the rest of the world know exactly why they are responding in force and place the blame precisely where it belongs, on the Palestinians.

Its no coincidence that Palestinians are launching rocket attacks against Israel now. Events at the United Nations, the lopsided prisoner exchange, the rise of Islamists and Islamism throughout the Middle East, American intransigence and stupidity, an influx of weapons from Libya into Gaza, the ongoing situation in Syria and the inability of the West to reign in Iran and thwart her nuclear ambitions, among other things, have made Israel weak and vulnerable in Palestinian eyes. That perceived weakness and vulnerability is why these attacks are happening now. Palestinians are carrying them out because they think they can get away with them. Israelis have to make it clear that they cannot.

If they want to survive that is. Kill or be killed. That’s the way it is in the Middle East and Israel will die the minute it forgets that.

Waiting isn’t an option and neither is diplomacy or a small-scale limited response. You can thank the Palestinians and their Arab/Islamic brethren for that.

Muslims Inciting Violence and Revolution too, Re: Muslim Campaigners Incite Hatred of American Values, EuropeNews, October 28, 2011

Friday, October 28th, 2011

Tarek Mehanna is a resident of Massachusetts on trial in that state charged with plotting a machine gun massacre in a local mall and supporting Al Qaeda in Iraq. Fellow Muslims there are attempting to pervert the course of justice through harassing the District Attorney’s office and individual prosecutors and inflaming the Muslim community by claiming that there is a government conspiracy against Islam and labelling anyone who criticizes Islam or raises questions or concerns about it as bigoted and Islamophobic. Imam Abdullah Faaruuq, who is the Muslim chaplain at Northeastern University, has called for Muslims to “pick up the gun and the sword” and said they shouldn’t be afraid to “go out there and do your job.”

This sort of unconscionable, disgraceful behaviour does much more than incite hatred towards American values and by extension Americans themselves. It goes far beyond that. It sanctions and legitimizes violence against Americans and ferments revolution against America by Islamists and their apologists and fellow atavists who want nothing more than to turn the United States into an Islamic country governed by Islamic law, Sharia. It is part of the Islamization of the U.S. and is happening in one form or another all over the nation. It must be stopped before it goes any further because if it isn’t Islam will take over and America will disappear into the sands of history. Islamists like Mehanna and Faruuq want to change America alright…change it into an Islamic country governed by Islamic law and they are well on the way to doing so. They don’t mind inciting hatred, violence and revolution and lying through their teeth like they’re doing in Massachusetts either.

Fortunately, Islam is increasingly being questioned and criticized. How could it not be? It is fundamentally incompatible with free, democratic, secular, pluralistic countries like the United States and this is becoming more and more obvious every time Islamists try to damage and destroy American values and institutions in its name, every time they try to extract concessions and force change to accommodate it, every time they threaten violence or act violently to further their agenda, every time they try to get rid of aspects of the American way of life and replace them with Islamic ones, all of which is happening every day throughout the nation. If there is a silver lining in all of this it is that Americans are finally beginning to wake up and recognize and understand that they are in a war for survival with Islam and Islamists and that it is a war they cannot lose.

They’re finally beginning to feel frightened of Islam and Islamists, as well they should be? Not of Muslims in general (not yet anyway), but of Islam and Islamists.

Yes, what’s happening in Massachusetts is far more than inciting hatred of American values. In the name of Islam Islamists are inciting violence, revolution and the overthrow of America as well. Be afraid, be very afraid. And then go out and do something about it.

Legally of course.

Be prepared to pay a price though. It won’t be easy but its something you’ll have to do if you want America to survive.

Constitutional crisis looming in the United States-will it be Dictator Obama or President Obama?, Re: Obama ‘Can’t Wait’ for the Rule of Law, American Thinker, October 26, 2011

Wednesday, October 26th, 2011

Obama is governing like a dictator and it is obvious he wants to be Dictator of the United States instead of President of the United States.

Presidential power in the U.S. has limitations and fetters and American Presidents have to compromise and work in concert with fellow legislators to achieve their ends. Presidents are also bound by the Constitution and the rule of law and have to work within their parameters. Dictators have no such constraints or restrictions.

When Obama says he can’t wait for the rule of law to implement his agenda as he did earlier this week he rejects the entire American political system and places it in jeopardy. When Obama governs by Executive Order instead of by Legislative Fiat, as he has done all along and as he has pledged to continue doing, he effectively turns the United States into a dictatorship with him as the dictator. Obama has bypassed Congress and issued 95 Executive Orders so far, with many more to come as he has said so himself. These are not the acts of an American President, they are the acts of an American Dictator and it is difficult to imagine a more serious threat to freedom and democracy in the United States. There certainly is no precedent in American history.

What’s next, an attempt to cancel the 2012 Presidential election? Don’t put it past him.

Congress must stop him in his tracks and re-establish the rule of law, constitutional authority and the system of checks and balances and separation of powers. If it doesn’t there will be no stopping him and you can kiss freedom and democracy in the U.S. goodbye. Obama’s contempt for the rule of law, constitutional authority and the system of checks and balances and separation of powers is palpable and he has spent his entire Presidency ignoring them. That is completely unacceptable for a President of the United States and he must be reigned in now, while it is still possible and while there is still a United States. Obama is not simply eroding the rule of law, constitutional authority and the system of checks and balances and separation of powers…he is purposely and blatantly trying to eliminate them.

Congress is waking up to the threat and a constitutional showdown is looming in the U.S. It is a showdown Congress and the American people cannot lose. If they do it really will be Dictator Obama instead of President Obama and American freedom and democracy will be a thing of the past.

Formal Obama attack on free speech and freedom of expression coming, Re: Obama Administration Bans the Truth About Islam and Jihad, FrontPage Magazine, October 25, 2011

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

The United States Department of Justice, which includes the Federal Bureau Of Investigation (the FBI) and the National Security Division,  has been ordered to remove all references to Islam from any examination of Islamic terror in its training materials and procedures. That means investigation of the Islamic beliefs, motives and goals of Islamic terrorists in the U.S. is verboten in the Department of Justice and the rest of the Federal Government because accurate, knowledgeable, honest and objective discussion and analysis of Islam has been forbidden and is no longer possible there. Islam cannot be examined in depth or criticized in any way, shape or form and woe betide any government employee who does so. Beyond that, Islamic apologists and supremacists whose purpose is to turn America into an Islamic state governed by Islamic Law, Sharia, are the only people the government allows to speak about Islam to its employees and they present a distorted and totally false portrait of it which has nothing to do with reality and history and everything to do with bringing about the downfall of the country.

These edicts come straight from the top, straight from President Obama, and they are a clear, unequivocal threat to freedom of speech and freedom of expression and the survival of the United States as a free, democratic, secular, pluralist nation. Thanks to Obama, the tyranny of Islam has come to the Federal Government and if Americans aren’t careful it will come to the rest of the country as well. It is entirely predictable that Obama will attempt to extend these edicts in some form to the American people themselves…if he is allowed to get away with it the United States is doomed, pure and simple. Islam and Islamists are evil personified and the U.S. is in a war for survival with them, even if Obama doesn’t want Americans to think so and won’t allow them to say so.

Memo to Americans-vote the bum out of office and fight him at every turn while you still can because if you don’t there soon won’t be an America left.

And don’t forget, as America goes so goes the world.

Capitulating to savages never a good idea, Re: The Gilad Shalit Prisoner Swap, International Herald Tribune/New York Times, October 25, 2011

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

The exchange of 1,027 Palestinian savages for kidnapped Israeli soldier Gilad Shalit will prove to be disastrous for Israel and the United States. It will lead to additional attempts to kidnap Israeli soldiers and civilians and extort Israel’s government. Why not? Kidnapping and extortion succeeded once so it will be attempted again and again until it doesn’t work anymore.

Instead of making Israeli’s lives safer the exchange makes more kidnappings and extortion inevitable. Palestinians and their Islamic brethren view it as capitulation and weakness on the part of Israel, which is exactly what it was. It will do nothing but embolden them and lead to more violence and terrorism, which in turn will almost assuredly lead to another intifada and war, a war which the United States cannot help but be dragged into. Capitulation and weakness never solved anything in the Middle East and have always led to destruction, bloodshed and death. This exchange won’t be any different.

Palestinians and their Islamic brethren respect one thing and one thing only and that is the strength of the sword. Weakness and capitulation are taken advantage of, every single time. Israel sent the wrong message when it agreed to the exchange and there will be real, definite consequences on the ground. The strength of the sword is the only thing that will deter Palestinians and their Islamic brethren from further savagery against Israel and the minute Israelis forget that is the minute they sign their death warrant. The Government of Israel was wrong, dead wrong, when it agreed to the exchange. Prime Minister Netanyahu was playing to the wrong audience when he authorized it and the message that was sent won’t be lost on anyone in the Palestinian/Islamic world.

Occupy Wall Street hijacked by Islamists and other racists, Re: Occupy Wall Street to Occupy Everywhere, Al Jazeera English, October 24, 2011

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Occupy Wall Street protesters never had any credibility among serious, thoughtful people with a real interest in improving society and making the world a better place and the knowledge, attitude and skills to enable that to happen…you know, thinkers and doers instead of whiners, complainers, malcontents and economic and social illiterates with a sense of victimhood, entitlement and inflated self-importance who blame everyone except themselves for whatever predicament they’re in and believe they can do anything they want to because they are righteous and their cause is just and progressive, including defecating and fornicating in public, setting up unsightly tent camps in public areas of major cities, blocking traffic and access to buildings, disrupting the lives of ordinary citizens and haranguing people who don’t agree with them.

Those whiners, complainers, malcontents and economic and social illiterates made up the bulk of the protesters in the early stages of the movement, which meant that it was innocuous and relatively harmless, albeit distasteful, childish and ugly. Purveyors of hatred, racism and anti-Semitism have since hijacked the protests however, e.g. Islamists and other racists, especially in New York but in many other cities as well, the tent camps are attracting wing nuts, criminal elements and other ne’er do wells and have become garbage strewn festering sores and health hazards, municipal by-laws and state and federal laws are being violated with impunity everywhere, policing and other related costs are becoming exorbitant and public order is being compromised wherever protesters congregrate. It is also patently obvious that protesters have nothing constructive to offer in any serious discussion about economic and social justice and that they are being manipulated and used by people with ulterior motives and agendas, Islamists and other racists among them.

It is time for the tent camps to be dismantled and closed, in the name of public health if nothing else, and for authorities to restore order and take back the streets for ordinary citizens. Those who are using the protests to promote hatred, racism and anti-Semitism should also be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Protest is one thing…what Occupy Wall Street is doing is quite another and unacceptable in free, democratic, civilized societies. It is an insult, affront and assault and should not be tolerated.

Obama, Iraq and the Middle East, Re: Barack Obama: All US troops to leave Iraq in 2011, BBC News, October 21, 2011

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

When President Obama announced the withdrawal of all American troops from Iraq by the end of 2011 yesterday he said “The tide of war is receding” and used this statement as justification for the decision to leave.

The statement is one of the most idiotic, misleading and just plain false remarks Obama has made about the Middle East since he was elected. There have been many others but this one stands out for its sheer ignorance and duplicity.

The tide of war in the Middle East is most certainly not receding. It is doing exactly the opposite and this is in large part because of Obama’s feckless foreign policy and refusal to stand up for American interests in the region and support America’s allies there. Because of American weakness and intransigence a large-scale confrontation involving many players is inevitable and this has to be placed on Obama’s shoulders.

American respect and influence in the Middle East has been almost totally diminished since Obama took office. All over the Middle East America’s enemies are taking advantage of the vacuum that Obama has created and are busily preparing for war on a grand scale, against the United States, against Israel and against each other. When Obama says “The tide of war is receding” and using that as justification to pull American troops out of Iraq he’s really saying that he doesn’t know what to do about the Middle East, that he’s washing his hands of the place and that he’s abandoning America’s remaining friends and allies there, like Israel and Saudi Arabia. He’s also telling the world that he’s willing to accept the rise of Islamism and Islamists throughout the region even though this threatens the national security of the United States because he doesn’t know what to do about that either.

So the tide of war is receding is it?

Not in Iraq it isn’t. The country is embroiled in sectarian and religious warfare which is only going to get worse once America leaves and the government there could easily collapse as a result.

Not in Libya it isn’t. The country is about to be plunged into a bloody civil war now that there is no central authority holding it together.

Not in Egypt it isn’t. Ever since President Mubarak was driven from office Egypt has become more antagonistic to the United States and Israel and that antagonism could very well lead to bloodshed and war in the foreseeable future.

Not in Syria it isn’t. Syrians are already fighting a brutal civil war, with the regime showing no signs of backing down and ending its vicious, pitiless repression.

Not in Iran it isn’t. Iran is close to becoming a nuclear power and is becoming more and more militaristic every day, especially towards the United States and Israel but really towards everyone else in the region too, with results that are entirely predictable.

Not in Turkey it isn’t. The Turks are turning away from the West and becoming more hostile and threatening as we speak.

Not in Gaza and the West Bank it isn’t. Palestinians are becoming bolder by the minute and another intifada is virtually a foregone conclusion.

Not in Israel it isn’t. Israelis are feeling very isolated and may launch preemptive attacks as a matter of national survival, especially against Iran.

Not in Saudi Arabia it isn’t. The Saudis have been begging the Americans for years to rid the Middle East of the Iranian menace to them and everyone else. They have come to the conclusion that America will do no such thing and have decided to defend themselves if necessary, even if that means nuclear war.

Not in Afghanistan it isn’t. The war there is ongoing and there can be no doubt that the country will implode once the United States leaves.

Not anywhere that Islamism and Islamists are rising to the fore it isn’t, which is to say everywhere in the Middle East except Israel. Islamism and Islamists are mortal enemies of the United States and their rise guarantees internecine warfare in the region and eventual war against the US.

And on and on. Truth be told, there isn’t a country in the Middle East in which the tide of war is receding. Quite the contrary.

For a President of the United States to say at this point in history that “The tide of war is receding” is beyond idiotic, misleading, false, ignorant and blind. It is also very, very dangerous and severely compromises America’s national security and way of life. Obama is clearly unfit for office and the sooner he’s drummed out the better. America’s survival depends on it and so does the survival of the rest of the free world.

The tide of war is receding. Rubbish, absolute rubbish.

No need to ask, Re: Moammar Gaddafi is dead, Washington Post, October 20, 2011

Friday, October 21st, 2011

All over the world pundits and experts, self-styled and otherwise, are speculating about what will happen in Libya now that Moammar Gaddafi has been deposed and killed.

There’s no need to wonder. What will happen is obvious.

Civil war, ending with the establishment of an Islamic religious dictatorship along the lines of the one in Iran.

Libya’s tribal, religious, ethnic and political divisions are very pronounced and always have been. Gaddafi’s brutal dictatorship was the only thing holding the country together. Now that he is gone Libya will descend into chaos until a new dictator emerges. There will be fighting and bloodshed among a a wide variety of groups and in the end a new dictator will come to the fore and Islam and Islamic law will reign supreme. That is the historical pattern in the Middle East and that is what will happen in Libya. One dictator is always replaced with another.

Bet on it because the chances of anything else happening are zero.

President Obama, British Prime Minister Cameron, President Sarkozy of France, Canadian Prime Minister Harper, U.S. Secretary of State Clinton and other Western leaders are tripping over themselves to take credit for Gaddafi’s defeat and spouting platitudes about freedom and democracy and historic opportunities for the brave Libyan people who threw off his shackles. That shows one of two things…they are either utterly cynical or utterly ignorant about the Middle East in general and Libya in particular, nothing more.

I wonder what they’ll say when the civil war starts and the real fighting begins.

They’ll probably distance themselves from the developing situation and express regret and disappointment at the unfolding events. After all, from the very beginning their actions had everything to do with political expediency and an unwillingness to take military action against Iran and Syria, which would have made far more sense in any number of ways. They didn’t have the stomach for it however because Iran and Syria could fight back and a weak Libya couldn’t, which is why they attacked in the first place. It was for short-term political gain and they did it because they could get away with it and because  there was no possibility of failure.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon was quoted as saying “The road ahead for Libya and its people will be difficult and full of challenges. Now is the time for all Libyans to come together.”

Not a chance.

In a related development the International Herald Tribune and the New York Times are reporting that Libyan leaders are wrangling over Gaddafi’s funeral and that there is friction and confusion about when and where to bury him.

And so it begins.

Barbarians in Britain, Re: 200 suicide bombers ‘planning attacks in Britain’, The Telegraph, October 9, 2011

Sunday, October 9th, 2011

It is conservatively estimated that there at least 200 Islamic terrorists currently living in Britain who are planning to execute suicide bombing attacks there, most likely during next years Olympics but quite possibly at other times as well, this according to senior intelligence officers from MI5 and MI6 (Britain’s security agencies) who recently briefed Government ministers on the threat.

Britain has been victimized by Islamic terrorist attacks in the past and it is a foregone conclusion that she will be in the future as well. It is home to a large and growing Islamic community that wants to impose Islamic law (Sharia) on the country and turn Britain into an Islamic state, a community which has no respect or tolerance for British law, values, institutions and heritage, which harbours and encourages terrorists and terrorism and which sees terrorist attacks as means to the aforementioned ends and as a perfectly valid expression of Islamic supremacism. Britain has become Islamized and is becoming more and more Islamized every day and British blood has been and will continue to be spilled as a result. This is no surprise at all because Islam brings bloodshed and barbarity wherever it takes root and it has most certainly taken root in Britain.

In a related development last week an Islamic organization in Britain called Muslims Against Crusades posted a hate message on its website entitled “Is the Assassination of President Obama Legal?” The organization asked “Are his actions to be taken as an example of other U.S. Citizens to imitate?…we would like to introduce a new question into the psyche of the west…’Is the assassination of President Obama now legal?’…If the President of America were to be caught off guard in Washington or St. Louis, would his death be justified given his new criteria in light of his horrific track record against Islam and Muslims and his own confessions?”

According to Islamic law the answer is yes, it would be. What comes next? Doesn’t take much imagination, does it?  

Muslims Against Crusades is a London based national Islamic organization which earlier this year proposed that independent emirates operating under Islamic law be set up in several cities in Britain and which has tried to enforce Islamic law in areas where Muslims predominate. It has no respect or tolerance for British law, values, institutions or heritage and has shown its disrespect and contempt on countless occasions. It makes no secret of its desire to turn Britain into an Islamic country governed by Islamic law by any means necessary and there are many other Islamic organizations in Britain just like it…organizations that not only hate and revile Britain but hate and revile the United States, Israel and the rest of the West as well.

Barbarians at the gate? In Britain the barbarians have already breached the gate and are well on the way to taking over the country. The British people better wake up soon and get rid of them because if they don’t there won’t be a Britain left. Not a free, democratic, secular, pluralistic one anyway.

The same applies of course to the rest of Europe, the United States, Israel, Canada and the West in general too. Make no mistake, Islam and Islamists mean to conquer and subdue everyone in the West and will do precisely that unless they are stopped.
