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.
Not that the MSM would tell you, but Islamist terrorism is worldwide and strikes every infidel nation regardless of politics. The MSM can't tell you this because it strikes at the very heart of the progressive ideal that anyone who opposes America or her interests is somehow a victim. Russia and the US are widely regared as polar opposites politically and economicly, yet both nations have suffered at the hands of the religion of peace. And so it will remain until jihad is recognized for what it is and delt with accordingly. That much we have in common.
The warning will heighten fears that Monday's rush-hour suicide attack on the Moscow metro by two women may just be the start of a large-scale terror campaign.
Investigators have said they were trying to confirm whether the two women were part of what was originally a 30-strong female "martyrs' brigade
The terrorist who trained the brigade, an Islamist convert calling himself Said Buryatsky, was killed in a special forces operation earlier this month in Ingushetia, a strife-torn region bordering Chechnya. He was known as the Islamist rebel movement's ideologue-in-chief in southern Russia and the media had dubbed him "the Russian Bin Laden."
Investigators said the late terrorist, whose real name was Alexander Tikhomirov, had recruited 30 potential female suicide bombers in Chechnya and Ingushetia and dispatched them to Turkey to be taught the precepts of radical Islam in an unnamed Madrasah.
On their return to Russia, he had personally continued their "education." The women are known as "black widows" because they have usually lost husbands or close relatives in clashes with Russian forces and are motivated by a desire for revenge.
Nine of the original thirty brigade members are known to have already blown themselves up in the lawless North Caucasus region along Russia's southern flank where suicide attacks started up again last year after a long pause, and two more are thought to have blown themselves up in the Moscow metro on Monday.
But that, say investigators, leaves 19 "black widows" at large.
VOM- Fr. Daniil Sysoyev, a Russian Orthodox priest well known for his missionary activities among Muslims, occultists and others, was shot an killed in the St. Thomas the Apostle Church in Moscow on Thursday evening. The killer reportedly entered the church, asked for the priest by name, and then opened fire at close range with a pistol. Sysoyev was hit in the head and chest and died later in hospital. He was 35 years old and the father of three.
There seems to be little doubt that religious motives are behind the killing. Syosyev had reportedly been receiving a number of death threats because of his teachings and missionary activities.
Please remember Fr. Daniil’s wife and children during this time of grief. You can post prayers on their behalf on the Persecuted Church Prayer Wall.
Today, while watching the news a very good organization, thebravest.com, was mentioned where you may go and sign a letter to the potus to keep Khalid Sheikh Muhammed - the 9/11 mastermind - OUT of our criminal court system.
This story keeps getting worse. Every day more evidence pours in of Hasan's radicalism, and how nothing was done about it.
Hot Air U.S. intelligence agencies were aware months ago that Army Major Nidal Hasan was attempting to make contact with people associated with al Qaeda, two American officials briefed on classified material in the case told ABC News.
It is not known whether the intelligence agencies informed the Army that one of its officers was seeking to connect with suspected al Qaeda figures, the officials said.
One senior lawmaker said the CIA had, so far, refused to brief the intelligence committees on what, if any, knowledge they had about Hasan’s efforts.
US Intelligence Agencies have a lot of explaining to do. They didn't drop the ball, they saw it and refused to acknowledge it even existed.
