The modern State of Israel recently attempted to peacefully dissuade a flotilla of ships from landing “humanitarian” supplies at the blockaded Gaza Strip. The flotilla was invitedseveral times by the Israeli government to offload the supplies in Israel proper where the supplies would be delivered once they had been inspected for contraband. The flotilla was determined to run the blockade and was boarded by elements of the IDF.
There is indisputable video evidence of how murderous the Jihadist occupants of the Turkish ship Mavi Marmara planned to become as they attacked an IDF boarding party. As they were boarding the ship, the leading element of IDF Commandos who were carrying non-lethal paintball guns were immediately and viscously attacked and beaten by men wielding clubs, steel rods, knives, wrist-rocket slingshots and other instruments meant to maim and kill. The IDF soldiers were given permission to use their sidearms only after one of them was thrown 30 feet from the upper to lower deck.
As expected in a case such as this, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) went into immediate “Blame the Jew” mode of operation.
From the hate-spewing mouth of CAIR’s Terrorist-Supporting National Executive Director, Nihad Awad: "It is imperative that President Obama not only speak out strongly against this massacre of civilians but also demonstrate our nation's outrage at Israel's brutal actions by taking concrete steps to end the humanitarian siege imposed on Gaza with America's support."
CAIR notes that there were former ambassadors and even a “Nobel Peace Prize” winner sailing with the flotilla “peace activists”. How interesting that these supposedly educated people would make common cause with Islamist’s who would reward those who help them by "murdering them last." As for the Nobel Peace Prize winner, there isn’t a rational person alive on the planet with any respect for a “prize” awarded to the odious Yassir Arafat or other Jew-hating political figures.
Bloated CAIR Stooge Ibrahim Hooper weighed in with a predictably misleading statement concerning maritime law: "Israel had no right under international law whatsoever to land military forces on civilian ships in international waters."
Stanford Law professor Allen Weiner, former State Department lawyer and legal counselor at the American Embassy in the Hague makes the international law issue clear: "The Israeli blockade itself against Gaza itself is not illegal, and it's okay for Israeli ships to operate in international waters to enforce it."
The governments of Germany, France, and Turkey have joined in the chorus of condemnation and scorn on Israel.
Has the world truly gone mad?
The Israeli Navy intercepted the flotilla in a attempt to prevent the landing of uninspected goods destined for Gaza and into the hands of Hamas- an organization that eats, lives, and breathes the killing of Jews- and it is the Jews fault for refusing to lie down and have his head cut off?
Europe, no great friend of Jews; where violent skinheads routinely parade in NAZI-type gear with red and black flags reminiscent of the Third Reich, where the Holocaust was planned and carried out not only by Germans but with the eager help of Vichy France and other assorted anti-Semites in other lands, dares to lecture Israel about International Law? Where was International Law during the Holocaust? Where is the law today? Where is the law when French Police refuse to enforce the law in "no-go" Islamist enclaves throughout France? Where is Great Britain when Islamists routinely hold protests displaying murderous threats and slogans supporting the death of non-muslims, Christians, and Jews and are protected by the Metropolitan Police?
And yet Europe would presume to lecture the Jews of Israel.
The Jews learned a hard, bitter lesson from the Holocaust. If they do not stand up for themselves, nobody will.
The United States will be torn apart if even half the subversive goals of CAIR are met. We already see radicalized Muslim extremists in the highest levels of our government and serving in our military and the police forces of our communities. The Jews of Israel see this and they do the one thing we won’t: they draw the necessary lessons and then prevent it from happening to them.
If we are serious about preserving life, we must aid and support Israel.
Israel is not, like many countries, asking us for troops. They only want the means and the good wishes of the United States to do exactly what the United States would do: defend their homeland from attack.
New beginning - same old Religion of Peace. In the year since Obama's pledge for a "new beginning" with the Islamic world, Muslims in America have, 1) Plotted to set off a car bomb in Illinois, 2) Plotted to blow up a skyscraper in Dallas, 3) Attempted to detonate an airplane over Detroit, 4) Murdered an army recruiter in Arkansas, 5) Planted a car bomb in Times Square, and 6) Massacred thirteen people in Texas.
Vilks has faced numerous death threats over the controversial cartoon, but said in March he has built his own defense system, including a “homemade” safe room and a barbed-wire sculpture that could electrocute potential intruders.
He said he also has an ax “to chop down” anyone trying to climb through the windows of his home in southern Sweden.
“If something happens, I know exactly what to do,” Vilks told The Associated Press in an interview in Stockholm.
While Vilks escaped the incident with broken glasses and a degree of shock, he said it raised concerns about the freedom of expression at Sweden's oldest and most prestigious institute of higher learning.
"What you get is a mob deciding what can be discussed at the university," Vilks told The Associated Press, adding he was ready to repeat the lecture if re-invited.
"I'm ready to go up again," he said. "This must be carried through. You cannot allow it to be stopped."
It contained three propane tanks, fireworks, two five gallon gasoline containers, two clocks with batteries, electrical wires and a 4ft by 2ft metal box.
The dark green Nissan Pathfinder with tinted windows was parked near the junction of 45th Street and Broadway.
The location is also adjacent to the Viacom building, fuelling speculation that it might be linked to the company's controversial South Park cartoon which recently depicted Prophet Muhammad in a bear suit.
It does seem amazingly coincidental given the timing and location of the attempted bombimg.
Christina Abraham, civil right director for the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Chicago) wrote a recent column for the Naperville Sun complaining that labels are wrong; particularly as they apply to CAIR.
Abraham briefly mentions the Irshad Learning Center's desire to have their property used as a religious institution. When the DuPage County Board refused a permit, CAIR-Chicago filed suit charging the county board with violating the learning center’s federal rights. Abraham insists that this is an example of the local community labeling all Muslims as a potential threat.
Abraham’s column spins off from a run-of-the-mill permit fight, to Abraham ranting that “labeling” is wrong. She cites as evidence the listing of CAIR as an “unindicted co-conspirator” in the Holy Land Foundation trial. She bleats that "neither the ILC nor CAIR-Chicago have ever been labeled unindicted co-conspirators of anything."
Anti-CAIR compiled a detailed report on what the Holy Land Foundation case revealed about CAIR's ties to the Muslim Brotherhood and Hamas, and in particular, FBI wiretapped statements that CAIR founder Omar Ahmad could "register 100 organizations in 100 cities in one day", and that they didn't have enough people to do the work they wanted to "hide".
Perhaps Christina Abraham could explain what kind of work Omar Ahmad's "organizations" would need to hide?
And as is par for CAIR, Abraham conveniently forgets that her own organization is a leading player in the “labeling game”. To take just two well-known examples we have only to look at the scorn CAIR continually heaps on two of America’s leading experts on radical Islam, Dr. Daniel Pipes and Mr. Steven Emerson. According to CAIR, both men are guilty of “Islamophobia” for daring to expose the actions of radical Islamists.
Abraham says in her column that labeling without reason isn’t right and of course, she is correct.
However, what have Pipes and Emerson done to cause CAIR to label them? CAIR has never been able to refute the truths that either man has presented and exposed about radical islam or CAIR, yet CAIR attempts to label them as “Islamophobic”.
Why? Simply because CAIR's entire fundraising money-train is based on being the organization that determines what constitutes “Islamophobia” and just who deserves the label.
Anti-CAIR has a few labels for CAIR.
We label CAIR and every single CAIR chapter as working for the destruction of our country from within.
We label CAIR a terrorist supporting front organization created for Hamas, that was not only founded by terrorists, but accepts, to this day, financial assistance from foreign governments and individuals who support Islamist terror.
We accuse CAIR of being Hamas’s American branch.
We accuse CAIR’s leadership, at all levels including Christina Abraham, as either being complicit in CAIR’s plans to destroy our Constitutional Republic or of being useful idiots in CAIR’s plot to destroy freedom.
The “Irshad Learning Center” should be wary of accepting any help from CAIR. CAIR’s legal reputation involves hiring non-attorney’s to represent Muslim immigration case clients and then attempting to cover up its depredations by paying “hush money” to victims.
There is a reason CAIR has so many ugly labels: CAIR earned every one of them.
French blog Bivouac-ID posted a picture of the poster (content warning!). The caption reads "Mohammed with wife, he's 53, she's 9. Is this the type of marriage we want to see in Skåne?"
The anti-Islam Skåne Party put posters with cartoons in twenty different places in Malmö. The posters portray the prophet Muhammed naked with a 9 year old wife by his side. The posters have been reported to the police by both the police and at least one person. The reporters think it could be hate speech.
Would it still be "hate speech" if it was Jesus pitcured nude with Mary? Not likely.
