Arabs Finally Adopting Equal Gender Rights?

12 06 2009

Jerusalem Post says:

A Palestinian family has killed its 15-year-old son in the West Bank after accusing him of “collaboration” with Israel.







I Beg Your Pardon, Mr. President.

4 06 2009

How did that sound guys? I was kinda gunning for an Olbermann effect.

Here’s the reason for the indignation:

Back on December 5th, OOTB linked to a NYT story that Obama would deliver a major speech from an Islamic capital. Knowing that Obama would never mention honor killings and gay stonings, or remind Muslims that American blood and treasure had been recently and frequently spent in their favor, I wasn’t planning on saying anything about it.

I was prepared for placating platitudes about our aggressions and their humiliations, our selfishness and their pain.  I was willing to go along for the ride in the attempt to, win hearts and minds by exaggerating the population of Muslims in America and down-playing our very obvious differences.

I didn’t even care if he credited Islam with the Renaissance (which he did).

In fact, I was totally willing to give Obama a shot at serving up some of his refined taqiyya to the throngs of non-drinkers.

But then he had to go and say this:

America’s strong bonds with Israel are well known. This bond is unbreakable. It is based upon cultural and historical ties, and the recognition that the aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in a tragic history that cannot be denied.

No.  A$$hole.

The aspiration for a Jewish homeland is rooted in history, PERIOD.

It’s discussed in the Bible and fortified by archeological evidence.

Attributing the existence of a Jewish state to the infamous tragedies of the Jews, no matter how eloquently put, plays into the hands of the anti-Zionists who can henceforth relate the Holocaust to Palestinian suffering.

It is weak-minded and lazy moral relativism and I loathe it like nothing else.

  • It begs the question of, why Arabs pay the price for European/Russian crimes.
  • It validates the presumption that the Palestinians are native to the land, while perpetuating the notion of Jews as pathetic nomads.
  • It cheapens the word, “holocaust” to the degree that Muslims believe the Jews deserve a real holocaust for imposing one and faking another.  And ultimately, it does not address the issue that Islam is by nature, anti-Semitic.
  • It reinforces conspiracy theorizing eugenicists like Nazis and Nation of Islamers/Black Liberation Theos, that modern Jews are fake Jews who stole Judaism.

So thanks for nothing Mr. Prez.

Atlas, who informs us that the despicable “Muslim Brotherhood” invited Obama to Egypt, has a pretty extensive post about the speech and it’s worth a look. She also has interesting news about how Obama’s keeping us safe in her highly readable stories about Eric Holder giving special protection to Muslims in America, and Obama ordering law enforcement agencies to back off counterterror investigations of Muslim-American converts.

American Thinker has an interesting ditty about one of the Quran verses that Obama quoted and the convenient omission of the subsequent verse.

Ed Morrissey at Hotair.com was pleasantly surprised and has solid links!

Instapundit with a classic one-liner:

They told me that if I voted for McCain, we’d get a President whose speeches on Islam were praised at Hot Air and criticized at the HuffPo. And they were right!

The Daily Beast has a column that teaches you how to write your own Obama speech.  Check this excoriating **** OUT!

And here’s a nice video with instructions on how to properly boycott Israel should you desire, brought to you by, Islam in Action:





Israel Gives Medicine. Arabs Load Explosives. Give Back!

13 02 2009

medbomb1

This is NOT a case of ‘giving someone a dose of their own medicine.’

JerusalemPost sez:

Medicine bottles, transferred to the Gaza Strip as humanitarian aid by Israel, were used by Hamas as grenades against IDF troops during Operation Cast Lead. The medicine bottles were filled with explosives, holes were drilled in the caps, and fuses were installed. Once Hamas fighters lit the fuses, they had several seconds to throw the grenades at soldiers. The IDF also found small explosive devices that used medical syringes to hold their fuses.

UPDATE: Flashback…Hamas dresses up as doctors and nurses and fights from hospitals





If Bush Is Obama, Who Does Obama Get To Be?

13 01 2009

The worst of what I feared about an Obama administration has already been brought to me in Bush’s flailing last days.  Socialism, huge expenditures during a recession that will lead to inflation, and complete abandonment of Israel and the greater war against radical Islam, has been capped off by the US abstaining in a UN vote which calls for a cease fire by Israel.

UPDATE: As Tigerhawk points out, Canada stood alone before a United Nations human rights council yesterday, the only one among 47 nations to oppose a motion condemning the Israeli military offensive in Gaza.

The only hope is that now that Israel is alone and America is waffling, maybe she’ll stand on her own and ruthlessly defeat her enemies.  Maybe now she’ll realize she can’t win fans anyways, and that America’s defensive umbrella is coming apart from strong winds.

So when news comes that Obama is going to talk to Hamas, it hardly phases fazes (sheesh!) me.  Especially when, as Creeping Sharia points out, Obama’s team has been talking with Hamas for quite some time.

The real worry, is that if Bush has gone this far to the left, what will happen to an already extremely liberal, Barack Obama.





Democracy In Action

12 01 2009

I was a good American today, well now it’s yesterday but still…I was good. Got my, “right to assemble” on for realz, though I must say some of my compatriots nearly violated the, “peaceful” contingent which merits the right.   And then I capped it off with some freedom of religion, freedom of speech and now I’m exhibiting a little freedom of the press…or something of the sort.

Unfortunately, much of the democracy I saw today yesterday was of the twisted sort that elected a terrorist, genocidal regime.

I went down to the Minneapolis J.C.C. to attend a rally for Israel, something I’ve never really done.  I have a lot of happy memories of that place from my teen years when I was involved with Jewish youth group leadership.

There was a good chance a few family members might be there too.  Now, explaining their support for Israel is a very tricky thing because they have to keep goose-stepping the liberal line.  But I am related to a few outgoing/activist-types and this wasn’t a march through downtown, uptown or dinkytown.  It was a poorly publicized, rally at a local Jewish community center, in the heart of the suburb of St. Louis Park, a city which is so well known for being a Jewish part of town, it’s called St. Jewish Park.

As a Jew who supports Israel and doesn’t have to twist my brain into pretzels to explain her rights while hating the most pro-Israel President ever, I knew I had to go.  The Jews I know who say they love Israel, still reflexively rely on moral relativism on all issues and strict adherence to their religion, Liberalism.  This religious devotion, or passion, must be preserved all at times, usually coming out in the form of:

I love Israel, BUT…

  • “It’s the poverty of Gaza that makes them hate life and love death”
  • “It’s dire and hopeless so they blow up at dance clubs”
  • “US aid to Israel is much higher, they have tanks and Palestinians have stones. “
  • “If America gave Palestine more equally, it would be better”
  • “Israel has been disproportionate aka, not numerically egalitarian, in their response”
  • “Palestinians living in desperate conditions aren’t all extremists, but what would you do?”
  • “Violence begets violence.  Israel has been extremely tough on them, and makes more terrorists when someone’s house is bombed”

Turns out, it’s a good thing my relatives didn’t infuse themselves in the realm of the Palestinians at this protest.  It could seriously have unraveled their whole psyches.

At this point, I’m going to, um interrupt…myself, and apologize for not bringing my camera, it’s totally unacceptable.  I just foolishly didn’t foresee the opposition.

It must be interesting from the Palestinian’s perspective to see Jews quietly and meekly filing into a building when they’ve built them up to be maniacal war criminals.  I was one of a few, if not the only, pro-Israel person who went anywhere near them.  It’s nerve-racking to consider what their mood might have been if a few more people had engaged them.  They were already chanting racist slurs and calling for genocide while ironically claiming the same is being done to them.  When Jews came and went, it was quiet and quick.  Eyes were diverted.  A few flashed peace signs.  Basically they said, “PLEASE DON’T F#(%*** HURT US.”

Jews are smart people.

Palestinians who had flooded the JCC’s parking lot, left to horns blaring, loud chanting, flag waiving and overall, warm toastiness.

Important:

How dare these people invoke the words, “holocaust” and “genocide?”

For goodness sakes, the UN doesn’t think Darfur is genocide.  And really, mustn’t one be an anti-Semite even if subconsciously, for rubbing German associations in Jews’ faces?  I mean come on!  It’s like so not even proportionate!

Lastly, and to disprove the viablity of those choice words…

While mingling at the get-together, I confirmed with several Palestinians (even some of the ones who chanted “kill all the Jews”) that Israel is:

  • A terror state
  • a vicious military power
  • capable of destroying the whole region with bombs
  • a racist nation against Arabs and Muslims
  • gleeful at the sight of dead Palestinian children
  • a rogue nation who does not care what the world thinks
  • willing to break International law and even uses nuclear bombs to attack Palestinians

Ok, so if Israel is those things, then why didn’t any partakers in liberty have an answer for me when I asked why there was a single living soul left in Gaza if Israelis are such genocidal murderers.

Some of them even told me how long they think it might take if Israel were to completely annihilate Palestinian territories.

About 4 minutes.

Right.

This is no genocide.

This is no holocaust.

Israel obviously tries to minimize civilian casualties at all expenses.

Palestinians and Muslim fighters the world over, try to maximize them.

On the way out, a few “human rights” protesters told me, “it’s coming.”

I wish I could have said, “we’re ready.”





Snowball Survives Hell: Egypt Blames Hamas!

8 01 2009

Vodpod videos no longer available.

Also, something that won’t be found on Al-Jazeera or any American newspapers, “Egyptian border guards have opened fire on Palestinians who breached the border to escape Israel’s assault on Hamas in the Gaza Strip.”

Don’t ask Dhimmi Carter for an explanation.  He just blamed the truce break on…wait for it…ISRAEL!  He says they, “launched an attack in Gaza to destroy a defensive tunnel being dug by Hamas…” Now, that’s clever stuff!  The smuggling tunnels are juuuust like 1950s American bomb shelters!

And it’s important to note that Gazans are being denied medical access at Egyptian hospitals.

The mainstream media will be sure not to tell the, “no-human-being-is-illegal/open borders” crew.  Maybe the Palestinians should just say, “they’re only doing the jobs Egyptians won’t do.”

Via Instapundit: Jules Crittenden has thoughts. “It’s a build. George Bush actually made significant progress in that area, facilitating the isolation of Hamas in the Arab world. With a major assist from Hamas itself, of course, as the savagery of this terrorist group became apparent. That could be another promising area of foreign policy for Obama to lift wholesale from the Bush admin. The suffering of the Palestinian people in Gaza can be laid directly at the door of Hamas and its murderous policies, with a nod to clandestine support from Iran.”





Martyred Hamas Bunny To F*** Like A Rabbit In Jihad Heaven.

6 01 2009

jihadbunny1

Hamas reported today that one of their best brainwashing tools has been injured by an Israeli bomb.  The adorable creature hopped on the scene a few years back when he ate Jews on daytime Palestinian TV.

So much for Cookie Monster and The Count huh?

Now, as a Muslim martyr, he’ll be treated to 72 virgin bunnies for eternity.

I mean, how ridiculous is that!

What’s he gonna do with virgin rabbits in the hereafter that he couldn’t have done with the much acclaimed, super-slut bunnies of today?

Ugh! Isn’t that just like the Jooooos to kill a rabbit so he has to get action from a bunch of inexperienced, prude females bunnies!

Of course, this type of profound sickness will never be found in corporate media.  For that would show the savage Palestinians for what they are.
