The Religion of Peace - UK Division

"A British subject who converted to Christianity from Islam and then complained to police when locals threatened to burn his house down was told by officers to “stop being a crusader”, according to a new report.

Nissar Hussein, 43, from Bradford, West Yorkshire, who was born and raised in Britain, converted from Islam to Christianity with his wife, Qubra, in 1996. The report says that he was subjected to a number of attacks and, after being told that his house would be burnt down if he did not repent and return to Islam, reported the threat to the police. It says he was told that such threats were rarely carried out and the police officer told him to “stop being a crusader and move to another place”. A few days later the unoccupied house next door was set on fire.

Christian Solidarity Worldwide, a British human rights organisation whose president is the former Cabinet minister Jonathan Aitken, is calling on the UN and the international community to take action against nations and communities that punish apostasy.

Its report, No Place to Call Home, claims that apostates from Islam are subject to “gross and wideranging human rights abuses”. It adds that in countries such as Britain, with large Muslim populations in a Westernised culture, the demand to maintain a Muslim identity is intense. “When identities are precarious, their enforcement will take an aggressive form.” "


Just makes you want to break into a rousing chorus of Kumbaya, doesn't it? Note the reaction of the cop who told this poor guy to move somewhere else and "quite being a crusader". I don't suppose that cop is a Muslim. No, no, not in Bradford. Sure, just about everyone there is a Muslim, but that wouldn't include this cop.
And note that the usefully idiotic dhimmis at the Times feels they must write that CSW "claims" apostates from Islam are "subject to “gross and wideranging human rights abuses”", not the neutral "says". And of course the " "s around "bullied" in the headline.

How Goes the Afghan War?

A fair question, especially in the wake of this latest debacle, the attempted assassination of Karzai and the reaction of the Afghan troops and police on hand, ie: fleeing for their lives (see pic above.)

To judge by this analysis from Debka.com (who know their eggs), the answer to "How goes the Afghan war?" must be not well at all. Particularly troubling is the obvious inside help that must have been lent, which is so reminiscent of the 1981 assassination of Anwar Sadat by Egyptian Jhad Islami, who later formed al Qaeda with bin Laden.

It seems to me that if the "insurgents" can strike like this at the heart of the Afghan government in the heart of the capital, what can we make of talk of "progress" being made elsewhere? Kandahar is clearly a mess, they couldn't even pull off a USO show on base there without it coming under mortar fire.

The Australian PM is preparing Australians for a tough 2008 as his "Army chiefs warn that Afghanistan is entering its so-called fighting period, when the melting of winter snow heralds an increase in activity by Taliban and al-Qaeda extremists."

Great, just great. Those melting snows can also bring another influx of Chinese Muslim fighters into Afghanistan of the kind that's been going on since at least 2001. These are "
entering Afghanistan along the ancient Krakoram Road to the Afghan-Pakistani border, through the Kulik Pass of Little Pamir, which is situated in one of the highest and most remote regions of the world."

Spell along with Ol' Uncle Dave now, kiddies: Q-U-A-G-M-I-R-E.

Hardball Season Opens

The political operative behind the Willie Horton ad that helped defeat Michael Dukakis in the 1988 presidential race is releasing a new ad this week targeting Democratic White House hopeful Barack Obama.

Floyd Brown, a longtime conservative strategist who heads the conservative National Campaign Fund, said he is launching the ad to expose Obama’s weakness on gang violence.

“The ad draws a parallel between Obama’s weakness on gang violence and the war on terror,” said Brown. Brown is the former head of Citizens United, which claims to be the largest political action group for conservatives in the United States.

I nominate for Dhimmi of the Year - US Division

Not content to rest on his "laurels" as one of the worst Presidents in history, Dhimmi Jimmy is now going to toddle off and have a nice visit with those poor, misunderstood folks from Hamas.
Well, that is, unless Representative Sue Myrick, a North Carolina Republican, has her way.
Wish her luck, she's calling on Condi Rice to revoke Carter's passport.

"“Former President Carter has acted in contradiction of international agreements to isolate Hamas. He has acted in defiance of both United States policy and international policy. His actions reward terrorists, lend support, and provide legitimacy to their belief that violence will eventually get them what they want,” said Rep. Myrick. ...

Congress granted the Secretary of State the power to grant and verify passports. In 1981, the United States Supreme Court held in the case of Haig v. Agee that the Secretary of State has the implied power to revoke passports as well (453 U.S. 280). ..."

Here's the whole release:

Unlikely to happen I suppose, but it would be funny as hell.

Defining moment for canerduh's "justice system"

The RCMP Officer told the justice of the peace that Schoenborn was a flight risk.
"My biggest concern here is the fact Mr. Schoenborn is willing, or capable of, threatening a nine-year-old girl, " the officer said.

"Justice of the peace Fraser Hodge (told Schoenborn) "You have a fairly long criminal record, three pages, but it is old and I'm reluctant to put anybody in jail"

When will Justice of the Peace Fraser Hodge will he lose his position?


is Islamist Extremists a redundancy?

King of This Town

(with apologies to Roger Miller)

Don't need to pay no rent
sleepin' underneath a vent.
Free dope, free needles too.
There's the alley where I poo.

I smoke crack right in front of cops;
Steal from houses, cars and shops.
I get off scot-free. They've made me
King of this town.

Old Larry Campbell rocks.
All the wisdom that he talks.
He does his best for me.
He saved the shootin' gallery.

And now, that Mayor, he's the man.
Let me hit it in his van.
This beats Calgary. They've made me
King of this town.

I know every sucker judge
who cries over me.
Every bailiff
and how long I'll be.

And you know I know that it won't be long;
It won't be long 'til I'll be out and singin' this song.
'Cause I -

Don't need to pay no rent ...

Authorities Plead for Calm as Thousands of Christians Riot, Demand Death of "Blasphemer"

Just kidding. Actually, the upside down church thing has been sitting there since 2005 without any of that sort of thing. Which of course, makes one wonder how this sort of thing would be received.

What's that you say? Art is better if its functional? Better yet if it helps people? How about the homeless? We can help them with an artistic statement along these lines.

What do you think?
