Nashville hotel boots anti-jihad conference
Keynote video address set by 'Fitna' filmmaker

By Bob Unruh

A Nashville, Tenn., hotel has summarily canceled a meeting scheduled in its facilities by the New English Review, which is holding a conference this weekend called "Understanding the Jihad in Israel, Europe and America" and featuring a video presentation by Dutch parliamentarian Geert Wilders.

WND had reported only about 10 weeks ago when Wilders, whose film "Fitna" warns that Islam is threatening Western civilization, was banned from entering the United Kingdom.

Wilders had been invited to Britain in February for a special private screening of "Fitna" for Parliament in what already has been a controversial event because of challenges to his right to show the film.

"Fitna" features Quranic verses shown alongside images of the 9/11 terror attacks, the 2004 attacks in Madrid and the 2005 attacks in London.

The film calls on Muslims to remove "hate-preaching" verses from the text of their holy book. Read more ...

Iran's persecution of innocence. School teacher condemned to death.

Farzad Kamangar
Farzad Kamangar, a 33-year-old teacher, journalist and human rights activist, is awaiting execution in Iran's notorious Evin prison. The Islamic regime calls him a terrorist, but his real crime is being a Kurd.

Mr. Kamangar taught at an elementary school in the northwestern Iranian city of Kamyaran, where he was a member of the Kurdistan Teachers Union and wrote for various underground human rights publications. He secretly taught his Kurdish students their banned language and told stories about their culture and history. He was detained by Iranian police in Tehran in July 2006 when traveling to visit his brother, a Kurdish activist. He disappeared into the Iranian prison system with no word to his family or friends.

After many months, a horror story emerged. In a November 2007 letter smuggled from prison, Mr. Kamangar detailed the many forms of torture to which he had been subjected, including beatings, whippings, electric shocks and solitary confinement in cold, squalid cells. He was deprived of sleep, denied clean clothes and given barely edible food. At one prison, he was subjected to something called "the chicken kebab" administered by the warden, which involved being trussed up and whipped. He was denied medical care to treat his broken body until he was near the point of death. Read more ...

Obama to Discuss Outreach to Muslims Next Week in Egpyt

President Obama says he will use next week's speech in Egypt as an effort to improve the United States' image in the Muslim world.

Obama said Thursday he plans to discuss his country's outreach to Muslims around the world and contributions of Muslims in the United States. Obama says he would discuss the broader need for peace in the Middle East and common understanding among nations.

Obama says the new approach requires both sides to recognize the potential for improved relations.

The president plans to deliver the speech next Thursday in Cairo.

If Obama's outreach to foreign Muslims is the same kind as his domestic attempt - State Department Continues Islamist Outreach - we should all be scared.

The Prison-Islamist Complex. Homegrown terrorism is a real and present threat to national security.

Prison Gihad
By M. Zuhdi Jasser

Last week’s foiled bomb plot in New York City has been widely reported and confirms that homegrown Islamist-inspired terrorism is a clear and present danger.

With three of the four assailants converting to Islam in prison, no one can ignore the impact which Wahhabi Islam, the strain of Islam being promulgated in many prisons has upon the radicalization of Muslim inmates.

Predictably, Islamist groups (like CAIR and MPAC) with the aid of some non-Muslim echo chambers continue to be intransigent in their blindness. This blindness is manifest in their refusal to accept the fact we in the Muslim community have an ideological cancer lying within the House of Islam which can only be treated by fellow Muslims willing to do the hard work of reform. Blaming others or trying to say that their Islam is not our Islam while bearing some truth deflects real responsibility.

Regardless of how some may try and dismiss the accused as “degenerates”, “drug addicts”, or “criminals”, the more important teachable moment here is that the opium of the minds of these inmates was pure and simply a supremacist form of Islam which depends upon the medieval Wahhabi-Islamist interpretations of our Islamic scripture and tradition. To deflect the public from this reality is to shirk our responsibility as Muslims and more importantly as Americans. Read more ...

2005 - Racism/Rapism against White Western Women

Western Muslims' Racist Rape Spree
By: Sharon Lapkin Tuesday, December 27, 2005

In Australia, Norway, Sweden and other Western nations, there is a distinct race-based crime in motion being ignored by the diversity police: Islamic men are raping Western women for ethnic reasons. We know this because the rapists have openly declared their sectarian motivations.When a number of teenage Australian girls were subjected to hours of sexual degradation during a spate of gang rapes in Sydney that occurred between 1998 and 2002, the perpetrators of these assaults framed their rationale in ethnic terms. The young victims were informed that they were “sluts” and “Aussie pigs” while they were being hunted down and abused. In Australia's New South Wales Supreme Court in December 2005, a visiting Pakistani rapist testified that his victims had no right to say no, because they were not wearing a headscarf. And earlier this year Australians were outraged when Lebanese Sheik Faiz Mohammed gave a lecture in Sydney where he informed his audience that rape victims had no one to blame but themselves. Women, he said, who wore skimpy clothing, invited men to rape them.A few months earlier, in Copenhagen, Islamic mufti and scholar, Shahid Mehdi created uproar when – like his peer in Australia – he stated that women who did not wear a headscarf were asking to be raped.And with haunting synchronicity in 2004, the London Telegraph reported that visiting Egyptian scholar Sheik Yusaf al-Qaradawi claimed female rape victims should be punished if they were dressed immodestly when they were raped. He added, “For her to be absolved from guilt, a raped woman must have shown good conduct.”In Norway and Sweden, journalist Fjordman warns of a rape epidemic. Police Inspector Gunnar Larsen stated that the steady increase of rape-cases and the link to ethnicity are clear, unmistakable trends. Two out of three persecutions for rape in Oslo are immigrants with a non-Western background and 80 percent of the victims are Norwegian women.In Sweden, according to translator for Jihad Watch, Ali Dashti, “Gang rapes, usually involving Muslim immigrant males and native Swedish girls, have become commonplace.” A few weeks ago she said, “Five Kurds brutally raped a 13-year-old Swedish girl.”In France, Samira Bellil broke her silence – after enduring years of repeated gang rapes in one of the Muslim populated public housing projects – and wrote a book, In the hell of the tournantes, that shocked France. Describing how gang rape is rampant in the banlieues, she explained to Time that, “any neighborhood girl who smokes, uses makeup or wears attractive clothes is a whore.”
Unfortunately, Western women are not the only victims in this epidemic. In Indonesia, in 1998, human rights groups documented the testimony of over 100 Chinese women who were gang raped during the riots that preceded the fall of President Suharto. Many of them were told: “You must be raped, because you are Chinese and non-Muslim.”
Christian Solidarity Worldwide reported that in April 2005, a 9-year-old Pakistani girl was raped, beaten with a cricket bat, hanged upside down from the ceiling, had spoonfuls of chillies poured into her mouth, and repeatedly bashed while handcuffed. Her Muslim neighbours told her they were taking revenge for the American bombing of Iraqi children and informed her they were doing it because she was an “infidel and a Christian.”
In Sudan – where Arab Muslims slaughter black Muslim and Christian Sudanese in an ongoing genocide – former Sudanese slave and now a human rights’ activist Simon Deng says he witnessed girls and women being raped and that the Arab regime of Khartoum sends its soldiers to the field to rape and murder. In other reports, women who are captured by government forces are asked; “Are you Christian or Muslim?” and those who answer Christian, are gang raped before having their breasts cut off.This phenomenon of Islamic sexual violence against women should be treated as the urgent, violent, repressive epidemic it is. Instead, journalists, academics, and politicians ignore it, rationalize it, or ostracize those who dare discuss it. In Australia, when journalist Paul Sheehan reported honestly on the Sydney gang rapes, he was called a racist and accused of stirring up anti-Muslim hatred. And when he reported in his Sydney Morning Herald column that there was a high incidence of crime amongst Sydney’s Lebanese community, fellow journalist, David Marr sent him an e-mail stating, “That is a disgraceful column that reflects poorly on us all at the Herald.”
Keysar Trad, vice-president of the Australian Lebanese Muslim Association said the gang rapes were a “heinous” crime but complained it was “rather unfair” that the ethnicity of the rapists had been reported.Journalist Miranda Devine reported during the same rape trials that all reference to ethnicity had been deleted from the victim impact statement because the prosecutors wanted to negotiate a plea bargain. So when Judge Megan Latham declared, “There is no evidence before me of any racial element in the commission of these offences,” everyone believed her. And the court, the politicians and most of the press may as well have raped the girls again.Retired Australian detective Tim Priest warned in 2004 that the Lebanese gangs, which emerged in Sydney in the 1990s – when the police were asleep – had morphed out of control. “The Lebanese groups,” he said, “ were ruthless, extremely violent, and they intimidated not only innocent witnesses, but even the police that attempted to arrest them.”Priest describes how in 2001, in a Muslim dominated area of Sydney two policemen stopped a car containing three well-known Middle Eastern men to search for stolen property. As the police carried out their search they were physically threatened and the three men claimed they were going to track them down, kill them and then rape their girlfriends. According to Priest, it didn’t end there. As the Sydney police called for backup the three men used their mobile phones to call their associates, and within minutes, 20 Middle Eastern men arrived on the scene. They punched and pushed the police and damaged state vehicles. The police retreated and the gang followed them to the police station where they intimidated staff, damaged property and held the police station hostage.Eventually the gang left, the police licked their wounds, and not one of them took action against the Middle Eastern men. Priest claims, “In the minds of the local population, the police are cowards and the message was, 'Lebanese [Muslim gangs] rule the streets.'”In France, in the banlieues, where gang rape is now known simply as tournantes or ‘pass-around,’ victims know the police will not protect them. If they complain, Samir Bellil said, they know that they and their families will be threatened.However, Muslim women in the French ghettos are finally fighting back against gang rape and police non-action. They have begun a movement called, “We’re neither whores nor doormats.” They are struggling against the intrinsic violence that plagues their neighbourhoods and the culture that condones it. In most French prosecutions, the Muslim rapists state that they do not believe they have committed a crime. And in a frightening parallel with the gang rapists in Australia, they claim the victim herself is to blame and accuse her of being a “slut” or a “whore.”According to The Guardian, during the recent French riots, a Saudi Prince with shares in News Corporation boasted to a conference in Dubai that he had phoned Rupert Murdoch and complained about Fox News describing the disturbances as “Muslim riots.” Within half an hour he said, it was changed to “civil riots.”Swedish translator, Ali Dashti, stated that in Sweden when three men raped a 22-year-old woman recently, they said one word to her. “Whore.” Such stories, according to Dashti, are in the Swedish newspapers every week. And, the politically correct “take great care not to mention the ethnic background of the perpetrators.” Sweden’s English newspaper The Local reported in July that Malmo police commander Bengt Lindström had been charged with inciting racial hatred. He sent e-mails from his home computer to two city officials. To the head of healthcare, he wrote: “You...treat old Swedes who have worked hard building up the fatherland like parasites and would rather give my taxes to criminals called Mohammed from Rosengärd.”In Malmo, the third largest city in Sweden, the police have admitted, Dashti says, that they no longer control the city. “It is effectively ruled by violent gangs of Muslim immigrants.” Ambulance personnel are regularly attacked and spat upon and are now refusing to help until a police escort arrives. The police are too afraid to enter parts of the city without backup.In early 2005, Norwegian newspapers reported that Oslo had recorded the highest ever number of rape cases in the previous twelve months. However, Fjordman explained, the official statistics contained no data regarding “how immigrants were grossly over represented in rape cases”, and the media remain so strangely silent. Oslo Professor of Anthropology, Unni Wikan, said Norwegian women must take responsibility for the fact that Muslim men find their manner of dress provocative. And since these men believe women are responsible for rape, she stated, the women must adapt to the multicultural society around them.The BBC pulled a documentary scheduled for screening in 2004, after police in Britain warned it could increase racial tension. “In these exceptional circumstances... Channel 4 as a responsible broadcaster has agreed to the police’s request...” The documentary was to show how Pakistani and other Muslim men sexually abused young, white English girls as young as 11.The number of rapes committed by Muslim men against women in the last decade is so incredibly high that it cannot be viewed as anything other than culturally implicit behaviour. It is overtly reinforced and sanctioned by Islamic religious leaders who blame the victims and excuse the rapists.In three decades of immigration into Western countries, Islam has caused social upheaval and havoc in every one of its host countries. No other immigration program has encountered the problems of non-assimilation and religious ambiguity. Everywhere in the world, Muslims are in conflict with their neighbours. And as Mark Steyn recently said, every conflict appears to have originated by someone with the name of Mohammed.In July 2005, Melbourne Sheik Mohammad Omran told Sixty Minutes that “...we believe we have more rights than you because we choose Australia to be our home and you didn’t. “In the same interview visiting Sheik Khalid Yasin warned “There’s no such thing as a Muslim having a non-Muslim friend, so a non-Muslim could be your associate but they can't be a friend. They're not your friend because they don't understand your religious principles and they cannot because they don't understand your faith.”Despite being told over and over by Islamic scholars, and witnessing massive influxes of Islamic crime, Western countries continue to believe in the reality of assimilation and moral relativism.In Australia, Lebanese Christians have assimilated and become a respected part of our community. The Premier of Victoria is a Lebanese Christian as is the Governor Of New South Wales. However, Lebanese Muslims have encountered serious problems because of their refusal to accept our right to live our way of life. Nothing so clearly demonstrates that it is not an issue of race — but of culture.


Muslim Rape Wave in Sweden
By: Fjordman Fjordman Thursday, December 15, 2005

Swedish girls Malin and Amanda were on their way to a party on New Year's Eve when they were assaulted, raped and beaten half to death by four Somali immigrants. Sweden's largest newspaper has presented the perpetrators as "two men from Sweden, one from Finland and one from Somalia", a testimony as to how bad the informal censorship is in stories related to immigration in Sweden. Similar incidents are reported with shocking frequency, to the point where some observers fear that law and order is completely breaking down in the country. The number of rape charges in Sweden has tripled in just above twenty years. Rape cases involving children under the age of 15 are six - 6 - times as common today as they were a generation ago. Most other kinds of violent crime have rapidly increased, too. Instability is spreading to most urban and suburban areas.According to a new study from the Crime Prevention Council, Brå, it is four times more likely that a known rapist is born abroad, compared to persons born in Sweden. Resident aliens from Algeria, Libya, Morocco and Tunisia dominate the group of rape suspects. According to these statistics, almost half of all perpetrators are immigrants. In Norway and Denmark, we know that non-Western immigrants, which frequently means Muslims, are grossly overrepresented on rape statistics. In Oslo, Norway, immigrants were involved in two out of three rape charges in 2001. The numbers in Denmark were the same, and even higher in the city of Copenhagen with three out of four rape charges. Sweden has a larger immigrant, including Muslim, population than any other country in northern Europe. The numbers there are likely to be at least as bad as with its Scandinavian neighbors. The actual number is thus probably even higher than what the authorities are reporting now, as it doesn't include second generation immigrants. Lawyer Ann Christine Hjelm, who has investigated violent crimes in Svea high court, found that 85 per cent of the convicted rapists were born on foreign soil or by foreign parents.A group of Swedish teenage girls has designed a belt that requires two hands to remove and which they hope will deter would-be rapists. "It's like a reverse chastity belt," one of the creators, 19-year-old Nadja Björk, told AFP, meaning that the wearer is in control, instead of being controlled. Björk and one of her partners now plan to start a business to mass produce the belts and are currently in negotiations with potential partners. "But I'm not doing this for the money," she said. "I'm really passionate about stopping rape. I think it's terrible." In an online readers' poll from the newspaper Aftonbladet, 82% of the women expressed fear to go outside after dark. There are reports of rapes happening in broad daylight. 30 guests in a Swedish public bath watched as 17 girl was raped recently, and nobody did anything. The girl was first approached by 16-year-old boy. He and his friends followed her as she walked away to the grotto, and inside the grotto he got her blocked in the corner, ripped off her bikini and raped her, while his friend held her firm.There are even reports of Swedish girls being attacked and cut with knives on the dance floor. A 21-year-old man who came to Sweden a couple of years ago admits that he has a low opinion of Swedish females –or “whores” as he calls them. He is now prosecuted, suspecteded of cutting eight girls in several pubs. He is also charged with raping a girl at a private party, and with sexually harassing another girl in the apartment. Several witnesses claim that the 21 year old has said that he hates Swedish women.Some Muslim immigrants admit their bias quite openly. An Islamic Mufti in Copenhagen sparked a political outcry after publicly declaring that women who refuse to wear headscarves are "asking for rape." Apparently, he's not the only one thinking this way. “It is not as wrong raping a Swedish girl as raping an Arab girl,” says Hamid. “The Swedish girl gets a lot of help afterwards, and she had probably fucked before, anyway. But the Arab girl will get problems with her family. For her, being raped is a source of shame. It is important that she retains her virginity until she marries.” It was no coincidence that it was a Swedish girl that was gang raped in Rissne – this becomes obvious from the discussion with Ali, Hamid, Abdallah and Richard. All four have disparaging views on Swedish girls, and think this attitude is common among young men with immigrant background. “It is far too easy to get a Swedish whore…… girl, I mean;” says Hamid, and laughs over his own choice of words. “Many immigrant boys have Swedish girlfriends when they are teenagers. But when they get married, they get a proper woman from their own culture who has never been with a boy. That’s what I am going to do. I don’t have too much respect for Swedish girls. I guess you can say they get fucked to pieces.”The number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants in Western nations are so extremely high that it is difficult to view them only as random acts of individuals. It resembles warfare. Muhammad himself had forced sex (rape) with several of his slave girls/concubines. This is perfectly allowed, both in the sunna and in the Koran. If you postulate that many of the Muslims in Europe view themselves as a conquering army and that European women are simply war booty, it all makes perfect sense and is in full accordance with Islamic law. Western women are not so much regarded by most Muslims as individuals, but as "their women," the women who "belong" to hostile Infidels. They are booty, to be taken, just as the land of the Infidels someday will drop, it is believed, into Muslim hand. This is not mere crime, but ideologically-justified crime or rather, in Muslim eyes, attacks on Infidels scarcely qualify as crime. Western women are cheap and offensive. We Muslims are here, here to stay, and we have a right to take advantage of this situation. It is our view of the matter that should prevail. Western goods, like the land on which we now live, belong to Allah and to the best of men -- his Believers. Western women, too, essentially belong to us -- our future booty. No wonder there is a deep and increasing suspicion against Muslims in the Swedish and European public.Sweden has national elections less than a year from now. Here is a suggested draft email, in English and Swedish, that you can send in to Swedish politicians and media to protest the lack of honesty about what Muslim immigration is doing to the country:I would hereby like to protest against the passivity and the lack of resolve demonstrated by Swedish authorities in the face of a huge spike in the number of rapes in their country. It is time for Swedish politicians, Swedish media and the Swedish public to admit that the large increase in the number of rape charges in their country during the past generation is intimately tied to the immigration that has taken place during that same time period. The attitude among many Muslim men is that women who are not veiled and act properly submissive have themselves to blame if something happens to them. Such a line of thinking is incompatible with the culture of freedom in any Western country. It means that as long as Muslim immigration continues, Sweden will continue to import an Islamic culture that will destroy women’s freedom in Swedish society. The strains caused by immigration are now so large that unless something serious is done about this, pretty soon Sweden will face the same kind of riots we have recently seen in France, and will approach the point of permanent ethnic and religious strife. Swedish politicians and media need to put the well-being of their daughters above that of political correctness and their own Multicultural vanity, and it is shocking that they actually need to be reminded of this. It is an international embarrassment to Sweden as a nation that Swedes travel around the world to lecture about women’s rights, and at the same time their own young women are finding that their most basic rights, such as being able to go outside wearing normal clothes without being harassed, are slipping away. It’s a sham, and it needs to end. Unless Swedish authorities are able to provide basic security to a population that pays some of the highest tax rates in the world, the Swedish government should publicly admit its inadequacy and resign from office. At the very least, it should be honest enough to tell Swedish citizens that they have to provide security for themselves, and stop making it difficult for people to do this. The Swedish general elections are less than a year away, and this time, Muslim immigration needs to be raised to the very top of the public agenda.

(IT) Degenerate Islamophobia vs. Common sense - Islamofobia degenerata e Buonsenso

Islamofobia degenerata e buon Buonsenso

[Questa foto avrebbe dovuto essere scattata prima che Debbie dicesse che Sean è un fascista]

È piuttosto fastidioso sentire islamofascisti declamare ‘decapitate coloro che insultano l’Islam’ o ‘l’America ha meritato l’11 settembre’. È tanto fastidioso quanto sentire islamofobici declamare ‘uccidete i mussi’ oppure ‘bombardate la Mecca’. Ma è doppiamente fastidioso quando questo Sentire viene espresso da Personaggi pubblici.

I Muslims Against Sharia (Islamici Contro la Sharia) si considerano orgogliosamente parte della Comunità anti-islamista. In quanto ad islamici, alcuni hanno un’Esperienza diretta di cosa significhi vivere sotto l’Oppressione islamista. E sanno tutti fin troppo bene quali siano i Pilastri nella Lotta con l’Islamofascismo.

Comunque, alcuni anti-islamisti sono consumati dall’Odio, tanto che gli islamofascisti non rappresentano un Obiettivo abbastanza grande per loro: essi odiano tutti gli islamici. Razionalizzano il loro Odio dicendo che tutti gli islamici sono uguale e che non ci c’è alcun islamico moderato. Bill Warner, un islamofobo dalla Florida (Bill Warner, an Islamophobe from Florida), da non confondere con Bill Warner, il Direttore dello Study of Political Islam/ Studio dell’Islam Politico, riassume ciò piuttosto bene, dicendo: ‘Io, Bill Warner, concordo totalmente con Debbie Schlussel, lei mette il dito nella piaga nuovamente, è tutta una Frode, una Frode islamica, non c’è alcun islamico moderato (I (Bill Warner) totally agree with Debbie Schlussel , she hit the nail right on the head again, it is all a fraud, a Muslim fraud, there are no Moderate Muslims)’. La Cosa buona è che nessuno ascolta veramente Bill Warner, specialmente dopo che si è messo in ridicolo, poiché - questo auto-proclamatosi anti-jihadista - ha fatto Comunella con un lacché del CAIR, Jim Sutter, e l’islamofascista MT Akbar, tentando di diffamare Khalim Massoud di MASH e Pamela Geller di Atlas Shrug (teamed up with CAIR lackey Jim Sutter and Islamofascist MT Akbar in a pathetic attempt to defame Khalim Massoud of MASH and Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs). La Cosa cattiva è che la Gente ascolta Debbie Schlussel. Anche io l’ascoltavo. Debbie ha fatto del Lavoro magnifico esponendo i legami fra il Governo e gli islamofascisti. Sfortunatamente, ciò non è tutto quel che ha fatto.

Mettendo a parte la Tendenza a diffamare altri anti-islamisti che non vedono le Cose esattamente come Debbie (lei chiama regolarmente Steven Emerson, Brigitte Gabriel, John Loftus, e Walid Shoebat bugiardi e frodatori), o la sua Tendenza a pensare che lei è l’unica vera diva conservatrice (a momenti stacca la testa ad uno dei suoi commentatori perché si è permesso di dire che Laura Ingraham è una conservatrice; Monica Crowley, secondo Debbie, è senza talento), Debbie non vede alcuna Differenza fra islamici e islamofascisti.

Il 25 maggio 2009, è stato un giorno nero per gli islamici anti-islamisti. Il Deputato Muftì del Dagestan, Akhmed-khadzhi Tagavev è stato assassinato, presumibilmente da Terroristi wahhabiti (Dagestan's Deputy Mufti, Akhmed-khadzhi Tagayev was murdered, presumably by Wahhabi terrorists). Ahmed Tagaev era conosciuto per la sua Posizione anti-estremista. Ha ripetutamente scritto in merito al Problema dell’Estremismo islamico nel suo Articolo in un Media locale e on-line.

Ma Debbie non la vede così. Nella sua demente Declamazione ‘la tua Fine nella Religione di Pace, intra-pacifica (Your Day in "Religion of Peace" Intra-"Peacefulness")’, Debbie scrive: ‘Non prendetevi in giro e non crediate che – come dichiarato dall’Agenzia News Interfax –Tagavev, il Deputato Capo Muftì del Dagestan, fosse una sorta di moderato semplicemente perché si opponeva all’Islam wahhabita ed è stato da esso ucciso. Il Tipo era estremista come molti Clerici islamici, ma semplicemente non era dalla stessa Parte estremista dei wahhabiti’. Mi chiedo quanto conoscesse Ahmed Tagaev. Io l’ho conosciuto, e non era affatto estremista. Combatteva gli estremisti ed ha pagato il Prezzo ultimo, ma per Debbie è semplicemente un altro islamico morto. Il Pensiero che probabilmente CAIR e ISNA stiano gioendo della Morte del loro Nemico, non dovrebbe fermarla per un Momento? Lo dubito. Per Gente come Debbie, l’unico islamico buono è un islamico morto.

Commentando ‘il Centro di coordinamento degli islamici del Caucauso del nord organizzerà presto un Incontro, per vedere come proteggere i Clerici islamici dagli estremisti’, Debbie scrive: ‘Correzione: i Clerici islamici sono estremisti’. Sicuro, la Maggioranza dei Clerici in America sono estremisti. Estremisti pagati dai Petrodollari wahhabiti. Gli stessi Petrodollari contro cui combatteva Ahmed Tagaev. Debbie definirebbe estremista pure Sheikh Prof. Abdul Hadi Palazzi, un Clerico islamico che è più pro-Israele della maggior Parte degli ebrei americani?

Diciamo che Debbie è così presa dall’Islamofobia, che non potendone fare a meno, gioisce ogni volta che un islamico muore. Ma dov’è finito il Buonsenso? Attitudini come la sua inducono islamici in Dubbio a pensare piuttosto ‘hey, questi anti-islamisti non sono così male, sono contro l’Islamismo, non contro gli islamici’ oppure inducono loro a pensare ‘Osama ha Ragione; essi odiano tutti gli islamici e dobbiamo difenderci’? Non capisce che lei sta causando più Danni che Cose positive quando si tratta di Guerra al Terrore? Oppure le interessa solo che sia soddisfatta la sua Rettitudine personale?



Islamist U? Meet the men behind America’s first accredited Islamic college.

Zaytuna College
By Ryan Mauro

Zaytuna College – America’s first four-year, accredited Islamic college – is set to open in California, and the proposed school is already stirring controversy because of the two men leading the project: Sheikh Hamza Yusuf and Imam Zaid Shakir.

While presenting themselves as “moderates” who have condemned terrorism, both men have a history of anti-American and pro-Islamist statements. One has railed against the “false gods” of democracy and the Bill of Rights. The other has called for the United States to be governed by Islamic law and defended Hamas. As Zaytuna readies to open its doors, it is worth examining the worldviews of the two scholars who could influence the minds of a new generation of Muslim students.

Both men have lengthy resumes in Islamic studies. Sheikh Hamza Yusuf, a convert to Islam, has studied in Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates, Algeria, Morocco and elsewhere. Imam Zaid Shakir converted to Islam while serving in the U.S. Air Force, getting his religious education in places like Egypt, Syria and Morocco. Read more ...

Jail Time for Jihadists.
The founders of a U.S. "Islamic charity" get 65 years for funding terrorism.

By Robert Spencer

In a major blow to terrorism financing on American soil, the founders of the Holy Land Foundation, once the nation’s largest Muslim charity, were both sentenced this week to sixty-five years in prison for funneling at least $12.4 million in charitable contributions to the terrorist group Hamas. The decision, which can still be challenged by appeal, also has important implications for the nation’s most prominent Islamic organization, the Council on American-Islamic Relations, as well as for American Muslims in general.

The HLF founders, Shukri Abu Baker and Ghassan Elashi, were convicted in November 2008 of aiding a terrorist organization by sending money to Hamas. The two were also convicted of tax fraud and money laundering.

Nevertheless, the defendants maintained that the HLF was really a charity organization. So far from funding terrorism, they were distributing urgent financial aid to needy individuals and orphans in the West Bank and Gaza – a claim that reprised the now-defunct HLF’s purported mission of aiding “human suffering through humanitarian programs that impact the lives of the disadvantaged.”

This week’s sentencing was the strongest rejection to date of the HLF defendants’ “humanitarian” cover story. As David Kris, assistant attorney general for national security, put it, “These sentences should serve as a strong warning to anyone who knowingly provides financial support to terrorists under the guise of humanitarian relief.” Read more ...

Stop ignoring Islam's antisemitic doctrine: Bronx bomb plot reminds us of a core religious problem

Bronx Gihad
By Andrew Bostom

"These were people who were eager to bring death to the Jews and the Jewish community." Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Snyder provided this apt characterization of the four converts to Islam whose plans to bomb a Bronx synagogue and a Jewish community center were thwarted.

Richard Williams, uncle of the arrested plotter Onta "Hamza" Williams, lamented that his nephew, a Baptist who converted to Islam, "…wasn't raised this way. All this happened when he became a Muslim in prison." Indeed, Warith Deen Umar, a Muslim chaplain who worked for 25 years in the New York State prisons and was considered a highly influential cleric, reportedly boasted that this vast incarceration system was, "...the perfect recruitment and training ground for radicalism and the Islamic religion." During his chaplaincy, Umar also repeatedly gave sermons fomenting Jew hatred, witnessed by prison staff.

But beyond all this, the obvious question persists - although dutifully avoided by our learned religious, media and political elites in this sorry age of Islamic correctness: What Islamic teachings might these American Muslim converts have learned, whether in prison, or elsewhere, which caused them to target their American Jewish neighbors, specifically, for mass killing? Simply put, it is impossible to comprehend this ugly phenomenon without understanding the core, mainstream Islamic theology - still unreformed and unrepentant - which has inspired hatred of Jews since the advent of Islam?

Abu Hamza sons guilty in £1 million luxury car scam

Abu Hamza
Abu Hamza was jailed for seven years in 2004
By Adam Fresco

Three sons of the radical Muslim cleric Abu Hamza al-Masri face joining him in jail for their part in the theft of luxury cars worth £1 million.

They will be sentenced today at Southwark Crown Court after admitting their involvement with a gang that stole and then sold BMWs, Range Rovers and Mercedes across Europe.

They took cars that had been left for weeks in long-stay car parks and acquired new log books and keys using false documents, including passports. Other cars were stolen in domestic burglaries. Some were used as collateral for loans of more than £20,000, on which gang members then defaulted.

Hamza’s sons, Hamza Kamel, 22, and Mohammed Mostafa, 27, helped to run the two-year operation with the cleric’s stepson Mohssin Ghailam, 28. Read more ...

Cancel Hezbollah's Holiday. Lebanese politicians should stop celebrating a holiday celebrating its enslavement.

By Elias Bejjani

On May 25 each year since 2000, Lebanon has been celebrating a so-called "Liberation & Resistance Day." Sadly, this celebration commemorates a bogus event, and a phony heroism that did not actually take place.

On May 22, 2000, the Israeli Army unilaterally and for solely Israeli domestic reasons withdrew from the security zone of South Lebanon in accordance with UN Resolution 425. The withdrawal was a fatal Israeli decision that has inspired the Hamas terrorism acts and the on-going havoc in the Palestinian Gaza strip.

The unilateral Israeli withdrawal created a security vacuum in south Lebanon. The Syrians who were occupying Lebanon at that time and fully controlling its government, did not allow the Lebanese Army to deploy in the south and fill this vacuum after the Israeli withdrawal. Instead Syria helped the Hezbollah militia to militarily control the whole southern region, and even patrol the Israeli-Lebanese border.

It is worth mentioning that the Israeli army's withdrawal was executed without any military battles, or even minor skirmishes with Hezbollah, or the Lebanese and Syrian armies. The Syrian regime, in a bid to justify both its on going occupation of Lebanon and the avoidance of disarming Hezbollah, came up with the "Shabaa Farms occupation big lie" and declared Hezbollah a Liberator, alleging it had forced Israel to withdrawal from South Lebanon.

(EN) New cold War against genocidal Totalitarism - (IT) Nuova Guerra fredda contro Totalitarismo genocidale

(EN) The Cold War Against Political Islam
Jawa Report 28 May 2009 - By Rusty

Defeating Political Islam: The New Cold War by Moorthy S. Muthuswamy and reviewed by Diana West (hat tip: Robert Spencer).

I haven't read the book yet, but I plan to. I've argued since 9/11 that our strategy in dealing with political Islam (Islamism) should be modeled after the Cold War. It's good to finally see someone agreeing.
We will not win this war, though, unless we tackle the underlying ideology. As long as traditional Islam -- which, by definition, is political -- is off limits for debate, how can we win? We can't.
Marxism, Marxist-Leninism, and Maoism were widely criticized in the West for 50 years. Idiotic Marxist notions such as the "labor theory of value" and "praxis" were scoffed at by nearly all. One cannot defeat ideas without attacking those ideas.
The notion that God revealed his last will and testament to a man soaked in the blood of tribal genocide seems far more silly to me than the notion that one can discern the end of history by walking around the British Museum all day while your children starve to death. Consider it part of my natural skepticism of epistemological certainty combined with my disdain for acts of evil.
A far less silly criticism of Marxism is that it was the ideology that gave us the Soviet gulags, the Chinese Cultural Revolution, and the Vietnam War. It is intellectual laziness to dismiss Stalin or Mao as megalomaniacs who's crimes are unconnected to Communism. In fact, their genocidal tendencies were deeply rooted in their faith that tens of millions dead were a small price to pay in the service of reaching the scientifically deduced end of history -- the Communist utopia.
The same criticism applies to political Islam: the violent jihad started by Mohammed continues unabated. Tens of millions dead in the name of Allah are a testament to the bloody ideology which combines unlimited state power with religious fanaticism.
Lest we forget, the Christian world has had its share of bloodshed. But the bloody religious wars in the West only began after church and state were combined by Constantine and ended when church and state began to be separated after the 30 Years War. No sane person in the West, though, believes that the Inquisition was a good thing. Or that the atrocities committed in the Crusades were done on orders from God.
That is to say, the underlying philosophies of the late Roman period all the way to the Enlightenment are completely open to criticism. One does not see protests in the street when one points out the errors of Augustine, Aquinas, and Henry VIII.
And academics need not write under a pseudonym when attacking Rousseau.
I'm not sure if Muthuswamy gets it right or what the grand strategy for defeating political Islam should look like exactly. But I can say with complete conviction that until we are free to criticize Muhammed and his philosophy in the same way that we are free to criticize Marx and his, then even conceiving of a grand strategy is pointless.
An enemy unnamed is no enemy at all. Identifying who and what we fight against is just as important as identifying who and what we fight for.


(IT) La Guerra fredda contro l’Islam politico
[ ]
Jawa Report 28 maggio 2009 - Di Rusty

Defeating Political Islam: The New Cold War (‘Sconfiggere l’Islam politico: la nuova Guerra fredda’) di Moorthy S. Muthuswamy e reviewed by Diana West (rivisto da Diana West) - hat tip: Robert Spencer (su suggerimento di Robert Spencer)

Non ho ancora letto il Libro, ma pianifico di farlo. Dall’11 settembre sto dicendo che dovremmo modellare la nostra Strategia contro l’Islam politico (Islamismo) sul Modello di quella usata nella Guerra fredda, e finalmente qualcuno è d’accordo.
Non vinceremo questa Guerra se non affrontiamo l’Ideologia alla Radice. Finché l’Islam tradizionale – che per definizione è politico – è esentato da critiche, come possiamo vincere? Non possiamo.
Il Marxismo, il Marxismo-leninismo, e il Maoismo sono stati largamente criticati in Occidente per 50 anni. Le idiote Nozioni marxiste quali la ‘Teoria del Valore del Lavoro’ e la ‘Teoria della Pratica teorica’ sono state schernite praticamente da Tutti. Uno non può sconfiggere le Idee senza attaccare queste Idee.
La Nozione che Dio ha rivelato la sua Volontà ultima e il suo Testamento ad un uomo imbevuto del sangue genocidale di Tribù mi sembra tanto sciocco quanto la Nozione che uno può capire come va a finire la Storia camminando tutto il giorno attorno al British Museum mentre i Figli stanno morendo di Fame. Consideratelo parte del mio naturale Scetticismo in merito alle Certezze epistemologiche combinato al mio Sdegno per gli Atti malevoli.
Una Critica molto meno sciocca al Marxismo è quella relativa al Fatto che esso ci ha dato i Gulag sovietici, la Rivoluzione culturale cinese, e la Guerra del Vietnam. È Pigrizia intellettuale liquidare Stalin o Mao dichiarandoli megalomani, i cui Crimini sono connessi al Comunismo. Infatti, le loro Tendenze genocidali erano profondamente radicate nella loro Fede che decine di milioni di Morti fossero un piccolo Prezzo da pagare per raggiungere la supposta Fine della Storia – l’Utopia comunista.
La stessa Critica si applica all’Islam politico: la Jihad violenta è iniziata con Muhammad e continua senza Sosta. Decine di milioni di Morti in nome di Allah sono il Testamento dell’Ideologia sanguinaria che combina Potere statale illimitato a Fanatismo religioso.
Si ricorda che anche il Mondo cristiano è stato sanguinario. Ma le Guerre religiose sanguinarie in Occidente sono iniziate solo dopo che la Chiesa e lo Stato sono stati messi insieme, da Costantino, e esse sono finite quando la Chiesa e lo Stato hanno iniziato ad essere esparate, dopo 30 anni di Guerra. Inoltre in Occidente nessuna Persona sana di Mente pensa che l’Inquisizione sia stata una Cosa buona. O che le Atrocità commesse nelle Crociate siano state compiute per Ordine di Dio.
Inoltre le Filosofie basilari del tardo Periodo romano fino all’Illuminismo sono totalmente aperte alle Critiche. Uno non deve assistere a Proteste per le strade quando fa notare gli Errori di Agostino, di D’Aquino, e di Enrico VIII.
E gli Accademici non hanno bisogno di scrivere sotto Pseudonimo quando attaccano Rousseau.
Non sono certo se Muthuswamy abbia capito esattamente il Problema o quale debba essere esattamente la Strategia per sconfiggere l’Islam politico. Ma posso dire con totale Convinzione che finché non siamo liberi di criticare Muhammad e la sua Filosofia come siamo liberi di criticare Marx e la sua, persino concepire una Strategia è infondato.
Un Nemico senza Nome non è affatto un Nemico. Identificare contro Chi o Cosa si stia combattendo è tanto importante quanto identificare per Chi o Cosa lo si stia facendo.

Who Speaks For Islam? Not John Esposito.
If the Georgetown University Prof represents Islam, the world’s Muslims are in trouble.

John Esposito
By Jonathan Gelbart

Georgetown University Professor John Esposito is the media’s favorite go-to man for questions about Islam. As the founding director of the Saudi-financed Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown, he is also notorious for downplaying radical Islam. Stanford University hosted his latest round of apologetics on May 13.

Esposito, who spoke at Stanford last year, was on campus to promote the film version of his recent book (co-authored with Dalia Mogahed of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies), Who Speaks For Islam? What a Billion Muslims Really Think. He was joined by the film’s executive producer, Muslim convert Michael Wolfe. The 55-minute film claims to present the results of the “largest, most comprehensive study” of Muslim opinion ever done. The crowd’s political leaning were evident in the audible hisses that greeted the cinematic image of former President George W. Bush.

A question and answer session with Esposito and Wolfe followed the screening. Don Emmerson, director of the Southeast Asia Forum at the Walter H. Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center at Stanford and an affiliated scholar with the Abbasi Program in Islamic Studies, was the first to offer up a challenge. Emmerson pointed out a question posed in the film, “Do you believe a woman should be allowed to work in any job she is qualified for?” is answered affirmatively by large majorities of Muslim men and women, but that the film never clarifies for what exactly the respondents believe women to be qualified. Thus, Emmerson concluded, “No quality control is evident in either the film or, if I may say so, in the book.” Esposito had no response. Read more ...

Islam Denounces Terrorism? Exposing Islamist hypocrisy and lies.

By Joe Kaufman

When people look up the word “hypocrisy” in the Islamist dictionary they will see the Muslim American Society (MAS) and its Freedom Foundation (FF) Executive Director Mahdi Bray side by side with those responsible for The American Muslim publication. This is because the groups and their leaders say they’re against terrorism and extremism, while they go about promoting these things. Could it be that they actually believe that Hamas is anything but a terrorist group or that extremists are anything but extremists?

Harakat Al-Muqawama Al-Islamia (HAMAS), the Islamic Resistance Movement, began in 1987 as an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood of Palestine a.k.a. the Islamic Society or Islamic Association. Since it was established, Hamas has been responsible for hundreds of Israeli deaths, many via such horrific means as suicide bombings.

Amongst Hamas’s founders, the most notable was Ahmed Yassin, a wheelchair bound individual who was executed by the Israelis in March 2004. During the five year anniversary of the assassination, March 2009, Yassin’s likeness was placed on MAS’s Freedom Foundation website by Khalilah Sabra, the Director of FF’s North Carolina chapter. Today, the pic is found on FF’s National Executive Director’s page, under the title ‘Mahdi Bray’s Photos.’ Read more ...

Islamonazi Homemade Concentration Camp

Ilan Halimi
By Pamela Geller

The abduction and murder in Paris of a young Jewish man by a gang of Muslim immigrants calling themselves the Barbarians shocked the whole of France in 2006. But now that the accused are on trial - silence.

A French judge has ordered the latest issue of the magazine Choc ("shock") removed from the shelves. The cover showed a man with duct tape completely covering his head, except for a small opening around his nostrils. His nose is bloody. His hands are also bound with duct tape.

It was a photo of Ilan Halimi, the 23-year-old Parisian Jew who was kidnapped and tortured for 24 days by the Barbarians. His captors took the picture and sent it to his family. A lawyer for Halimi's family had complained about the magazine, but Choc's editor-in-chief Paul Payan responded: "Of course, we understand the anguish of the parents and, of course, we share their anguish.... But what's so harrowing is not the publication of this photo. What's harrowing is what it represents, what happened, the reality behind it."

And it gets worse. The New York Times reported last week that "in the two and a half weeks since 27 people went on trial [in Paris] for the brutal 2006 kidnapping, torture and killing of a young Jewish man, little has filtered out about the proceedings." Worse still, the little that has emerged indicates that French government and law enforcement have done everything in their power to obscure the Islamic Jew-hatred that led these Muslims to commit this crime.

Degenerate Islamophobia vs. Common Sense

Debbie & Sean
It is quite annoying to hear Islamofascist rants like "behead those who insult Islam" or "America deserved 9/11." It is just as annoying to hear Islamophobic rants like "kill the Muzzies" or "Nuke Mekkah." But it's twice as annoying when this kind of a sentiment emanates from public figures.

Muslims Against Sharia proudly consider ourselves to be members of anti-Islamist community. As Muslims, some of have a first-hand experience of living under Islamist oppression. And we know all too well what the stakes are in the fight with Islamofascism.

However, some anti-Islamists are so consumed by hatred, that Islamofascists do not present a large enough target for them; they hate all Muslims. They rationalize their hate by claiming that all Muslims are the same and there are no moderate Muslims. "Bill Warner, an Islamophobe from Florida (not to be confused with Bill Warner, the director of the Center for the Study of Political Islam) sums it up pretty well: "I (Bill Warner) totally agree with Debbie Schlussel , she hit the nail right on the head again, it is all a fraud, a Muslim fraud, there are no Moderate Muslims."

The good thing is that nobody really listens to Bill Warner, especially after he became a laughing stock when this self-proclaimed anti-Gihadist teamed up with CAIR lackey Jim Sutter and Islamofascist MT Akbar in a pathetic attempt to defame Khalim Massoud of MASH and Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs. The bad thing is that people listen to Debbie Schlussel. I used to listen to her too. Debbie has done some great work exposing government's ties with Islamofascists. Unfortunately, this is not all she has done.

Putting aside her tendency to defame other anti-Islamists who don't see eye-to-eye with Debbie (she regularly calls Steven Emerson, Brigitte Gabriel, John Loftus, and Walid Shoebat liars and frauds) or her tendency to think that she is the only true conservative diva (she nearly bit the head off one of her commenter's head, because she dared to say that Laura Ingraham is a conservative; Monica Crowley, according to Debbie, is a no-talent phony,) Debbie doesn't see any difference between Muslims and Islamofascist.

May 25, 2009 was a dark day for anti-Islamist Muslims. Dagestan's Deputy Mufti, Akhmed-khadzhi Tagayev was murdered, presumably by Wahhabi terrorists. Ahmed Tagaev was known for his anti-extremist stance. He has repeatedly written about problems of Islamic extremism in his articles in local media and online.

But Debbie doesn't see it that way. In her demented rant, "Your Day in "Religion of Peace" Intra-"Peacefulness"," Debbie writes: "Don't kid yourself and believe--as claimed by the Interfax news agency in this artic--that Tagayev, the Deputy Chief Mufti of Dagestan, was some sort of moderate merely because he opposed Wahhabist Islam and was shot by them. The guy was extremist as most Muslim clerics are, just not on the same extremist side as the Wahhabis are." I wonder how well she knew Ahmed Tagaev. I knew him, and he was no extremist. He was fighting extremists and he paid the ultimate price, but for Debbie he's just another dead Muslim. Shouldn't the thought that CAIR and ISNA are probably quietly rejoicing the death of their enemy at least give her a pause? I doubt that. For people like Debbie, the only good Muslim is a dead Muslim.

Commenting on "The Coordination Center of North Caucasus Muslims will soon hold a meeting, where it will raise the issue of how to protect Islamic clergy from extremists," Debbie writes: "Correction: Islamic clergy are extremists." Granted, vast majority of Islamic clergy in America are extremists. Extremists paid for by Wahhabi petrodollars. The same Wahhabi petrodollars that Ahmed Tagaev was fighting against. Would Debbie also characterize Sheikh Prof. Abdul Hadi Palazzi, an Islamic cleric who is more pro-Israel than most American Jews, as an extremist?

Suppose Debbie is seething with Islamophobia so much, she can't help herself, but rejoice every time a Muslim dies. But how about some common sense? Will attitude like hers make on-the-fence Muslims think, "hey, those anti-Islamists are not that bad, they are against Islamism, not against Muslims" or would they think, "Osama is right; they hate all Muslims and we have to defend ourselves"? Doesn't she understand that she may be doing more harm than good when it comes to the War on Terror? Or does she care as long as her self-righteousness is satisfied?


HLF Founders Sentenced to Long Prison Terms

DALLAS - A federal judge imposed what could amount to life sentences on three former leaders of the Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development (HLF) on Wednesday for illegally routing more than $12 million to Hamas.

"The purpose of creating the Holy Land Foundation was as a fundraising arm for Hamas," said U.S. District Judge Jorge Solis.

He sentenced former HLF Chief Executive Officer Shukri Abu Baker and co-founder Ghassan Elashi to 65 years in prison. Longtime HLF chairman Mohamed El-Mezain, who was convicted only on one count of conspiring to provide material support to terrorists, received the maximum 15-year sentence.

All three men are at least 50 years old. Another defendant, Mufid Abdelqader, 49, was sentenced to 20 years in prison. The sentencing of HLF's New Jersey Office Director, Abdelrahman Odeh, still remains.

While appeals are being prepared, the sentencing hearings end the largest terror financing case in the United States, one which closed the largest Muslim-American charity in 2001. Its significance, however, resonates far beyond the Dallas courtroom and the five men convicted by a jury last November. Read more ...

No exceptions to settlement freeze, Obama tells Israel


May 28

US President Barack Obama has drawn a line on Israeli settlement expansion before he meets today with Palestinian president Mahmud Abbas as part of his urgent quest to revive peace talks.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Obama made it clear, when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited here last week, that he wants “no natural growth exceptions” to his call for a settlement freeze.

The remarks - which a former US official called “almost unprecedented” in toughness toward ally Israel - amounted to another challenge to Netanyahu, who has already balked at Obama's call for a Palestinian state.

Netanyahu told his cabinet on Sunday he did not intend to build new settlements but that “it makes no sense to ask us not to answer to the needs of natural growth and to stop all construction,” a senior official said.

Speaking during a visit by Foreign Minister Ahmed Abul Gheit of Egypt, a key mediator in the peace talks, Clinton said the “president was very clear” about settlements when he welcomed Netanyahu to the White House on May 18.

“He wants to see a stop to settlements. Not some settlements, not outposts, not natural growth exceptions,” Clinton told reporters.

Abul Gheit, standing next to Clinton, said “we feel encouraged on the insistence and the determination” of the Obama administration's push for peace and a Palestinian state.

Egypt's top diplomat warned that negotiations were needed in order to create a “Palestinian state as soon as possible” or the world would suffer.

Both Clinton and Abul Gheit were due to meet in Washington on Wednesday with Abbas, who arrived in Washington late on Tuesday ahead of his first official meeting with Obama.

The US-backed Palestinian Authority has ruled out restarting peace talks with Israel unless it removes all roadblocks and freezes settlement activity in the occupied West Bank, according to top negotiator Ahmed Qorei.

He said Abbas would present the conditions during the White House talks with Obama on Thursday.

Abbas is in Washington with his prime minister Salam Fayyad, who was sworn in last week at the head of a new Palestinian government that excludes the Islamist movement Hamas after the rival factions failed to agree on a unity deal.

The two factions have been at loggerheads since Hamas forces ousted forces loyal to Abbas from the Gaza Strip in June 2007. Since then, the Iranian-backed Hamas has run the tiny coastal enclave and the secular Abbas has been in charge of the West Bank.

Israeli media meanwhile said that Netanyahu is willing to tear down settlement outposts - those settlements Israel considers illegal - in the occupied West Bank in return for US backing of its stance on arch-foe Iran.

Clinton's spokesman Ian Kelly told reporters earlier that Middle East envoy George Mitchell held talks on Tuesday with Israeli officials in London in a follow-up to Netanyahu's visit to the White House.

He did not confirm reports that the talks touched on the perceived threat from Iran or Obama's call for a freeze on settlements.

Aaron David Miller, who served in both past Democratic and Republican administrations, told AFP that Clinton's remarks were “almost unprecedented” and amount to “something of a radical break with past administrations.”

Only former secretary of state James Baker and president George H.W. Bush, he said, have taken as hard a line on settlements, but that came much later, not in the first few months of a new administration.

“These (Obama) guys are determined either to change Netanyahu's behaviour on the settlements issue or ... bring about a change in the Israeli government,” he speculated.

Netanyahu runs political risks, he said, if he damages Israel's ties with its main ally Washington at a time when he is warning about the “existential” threat from Iran.

But, Miller said, Obama also risks a backlash from US supporters of Israel if he appears unfair to the Israelis or mismanages the showdown with Netanyahu.

Obama, he suggested, may be trying to line up some Arab states to recognize Israel in return for the settlement freeze.

Finally! Western Law Remedies Woman’s Inhumanity to Woman Among Muslim Immigrant Communities.

By Phyllis Chesler

In 2001, the mother of an 11-year-old girl spirited her out of Gothenburg, in Sweden, and back to Somalia where she had her brutally genitally mutilated (and without anesthesia). The mother and two other women held her down while a man made sure that she would never experience sexual pleasure and would instead, experience a great deal of pain for the rest of her life. According to the English language Swedish media,

“For several years after the violation the girl was subjected to repeated examinations by her mother who forced her fingers into her vagina to check that her virginity remained intact. She also repeatedly assaulted her daughter with various implements including books, a curtain rail and a belt.”

Yesterday, eight years later, the girl, now 19-years-old, won a lawsuit in which she was awarded a monetary compensation from her mother for the “abuse and gross violation of (her bodily) integrity.” Damages for pain and suffering are yet to be decided.

In Somalia, the girl would not have such legal recourse. My congratulations to the Swedish, Western legal system and to the bravery of this plaintiff. May we soon see many more such lawsuits and victories as well. Read more ...

Reversing U.S. policy in AfPak

Defeating Political Islam
By Diana West

As the U.S. military slogs on, confused, trying to win the "trust" of the Afghan people; as the Obama administration, illogically, attempts to explain its way through Pakistan's "uneven" record of fighting jihad to a new $7.5 billion aid package (on top of $12 billion spent by the Bush administration), it is great luck to come across a book like Moorthy S. Muthuswamy's "Defeating Political Islam: The New Cold War." It contains all the answers to the questions looming over our widening and deepening presence in "AfPak," and more.

In short, the United States fails to understand Pakistan - whose army, not incidentally, sports the motto "Faith, piety, and holy war in the path of Allah" - for what it is: a member state of what the author calls "the axis of jihad," which also includes Saudi Arabia and Iran. These three nations - with their arm's-length proxy armies of the Taliban, al Qaeda and Hezbollah - are the most aggressive purveyors of what the book describes as "political Islam," the jihadist creed based on Islamic doctrine that is destabilizing the world, from India's Kashmir region to Britain's old mill towns, from all of Israel to Parisian banlieues.
