Leftism and Islam: Determined to undo everything decent humanity has accomplished. Links 3 for Oct. 21 – 2014

1. Uproar after NYT Reports Obama Administration Will Seek to Circumvent Congress on Iran Deal

The State Department scrambled on Monday to respond to a weekend New York Times scoop revealing that the Obama administration intends to bypass Congress in reducing sanctions on Iran – the Times‘ exact language was that “President Obama will do everything in his power to avoid letting Congress vote on” an agreement with the Islamic republic – as both lawmakers expressed opposition and journalists pressed for clarification.

2. Official talking heads for the Canadian muslims make sure the media and public see them as the victims of yesterday’s attack on two Canadian soldiers.

Concerned there might be a backlash against their community, many hope to stress that Martin Couture-Rouleau’s murderous act of mowing down a member of the Armed Forces should not be connected to his recent conversion to Islam.

The Canadian Muslim Forum say they were shocked by news of Couture-Rouleau’s actions and have outright condemned it.

(Yawn. What was that? “Imams in Calgary express concern over a backlash against Muslims following tomorrow’s scheduled beheading” Anon)

3. This is huge progress. CTV, one of Canada’s 2 broadcast media empires which usually works to force people away from the facts when it comes to Islam, this time sent out a reporter to the actual mosque that the jihadi who killed the serviceman yesterday attended and asked questions. This is new, and huge progress in terms of media dealing with the truth. Watch the video at the link above.

4. There is an interview with a German biker gang member on Israeli TV who frankly, is amazing. It is one of the most moving interviews I have heard in a long time. A man who not only has amazing convictions, but puts his life and treasure on the line for those convictions. And to hear a German biker speak about Israel the way he does, and the Jewish people is an amazing thing. Click over and check out the article.. Here is a Gates of Vienna set of articles on this same Biker gang.

The girls, who are from the Denver area, were trying “to fulfill what they believe is some vision that has been put out on a slick media campaign” by radical groups in Syria, including ISIS, the official said.

Comparing approaches to the issue of Islamic attacks in our midst.

Two self declared Muslims, Tarek Fatah and Raheel Reza were both interviewed today by the Sun Chain about the attack in Montreal and the three girls who were caught in Turkey trying to join the Islamic State and had left Toronto to do so.

There is a critical difference in the approach between these two people.

Lets look at Tarek’s first:

On the attack in Montreal:

If there was any doubt about Couture-Rouleau’s motives, it ended when Quebec’s TVA Nouvelles reported Couture-Rouleau called a 911 dispatcher and explained he was “acting in the name of Allah.”

On the three girls from Toronto:

Twenty years ago, would the RCMP have released teenage IRA recruits back into the care of their parents?

We now have three teenage girls who apparently believe in the ISIS doctrine of armed jihad and who flew out of the country to join it, walking freely about our city, while the rest of us have no information as to who they are or what to look out for.

As someone who has received death threats from Islamists as late as two weeks ago, and who in 2011 received a threat from a teenage Somali girl when I was hospitalized, perhaps I am a bit paranoid.

Read the whole article for context. But Tarek has it right. The frame of reference is only Canadian and Canadian law. There is no attempt to discuss the motives or actions or justifications from any other point of view. Tarek’s reasoning in these, as in most things, mirrors my own.

Then we have Raheel Reza on wearing the veil during citizenship oath:

Her reasoning seems to be about what Islam and koran allows or demands. I find this to be extremely problematic. It doesn’t matter if her interpretation agrees with Canadian values or laws. It only matters what Canadian values or laws are. What if the Koran did demand that women wear the veil whenever they are in infidel lands? Would she be backing that view then? We must never consider what foreign value sets demand when within Canada and I find it a kind of anesthesia when seemingly liberal muslims try and agree with us while sneaking in the idea that the koran or Islamic law should be viewed as an authority and something which should be considered.

Islamic State claims to have hit US embassy in Baghdad. Claims likely casualties

ISIS Claims It Hit U.S. Embassy In Attack On Baghdad Green Zone

ISIS has reportedly struck the U.S. embassy in Baghdad in what could be the furthers incursion yet into Iraq’s capital.

On Tuesday the Islamist militant group took credit for a mortar attack against the embassy in Baghdad. The group bragged about the attack on social media, claiming that there were likely casualties.

Root causes of terror? Mohamed. Links 2 for Oct. 21 – 2014

1. Wales: Mum flying black Muslim flag outside home tells neighbours it’s definitely not a show of support for Islamic State

2. CNN: What we learn from ISIS’ online magazine

But the two webzines share few similarities beyond that. Inspire was very much focused on recruiting lone-wolf jihadists and inspiring homegrown extremism in the West, but Dabiq includes only a few vague sentences about carrying out attacks in the West.

Where Inspire included instructions on bomb-making and building weapons to carry our attacks in the West, Dabiq focuses almost entirely on the actions of ISIS in Iraq and Syria and encourages followers to join the jihad there. In the third issue of Dabiq an ISIS writer asserts, “This life of jihad is not possible until you pack and move to the Khilafah,” meaning to leave your home and travel to ISIS’ areas of control in Iraq and Syria.

(While this isn’t bad, CNN fails to notice the point they themselves make earlier on in this article. That Dabiq actually does give clear scriptural justification for everything they do. This means that the Islamic State is the real islam)

3. More on the US weapons drop to Islamic State jihadis

Not only are foodstuffs, medical supplies—even clinics—going to ISIS, the distribution networks are paying ISIS ‘taxes’ and putting ISIS people on their payrolls.

GAZIANTEP, Turkey—While U.S. warplanes strike at the militants of the so-called Islamic State in both Syria and Iraq, truckloads of U.S. and Western aid has been flowing into territory controlled by the jihadists, assisting them to build their terror-inspiring “caliphate.”

4. For some time now I have been making the argument whenever and wherever I could that removing people’s right of exit is wrong at many levels, with the one proviso that once we are at war with a nation or people then we can deny the right of exit to someone planning to fight against us but then we should be arresting them on treason etc. and it becomes a different matter. I think yesterday’s terror attack and murder of one of Canada’s soldiers makes that point better than I possibly could have. Please read this:

Martin (Ahmad) Couture-Rouleau’s passport was seized by Canadian authorities concerned he had become radicalized and would travel overseas, RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson said Tuesday.

Couture-Rouleau, 25, was fatally shot after hitting the two soldiers in a parking lot of a commercial plaza in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, a city about 40 kilometres southeast of Montreal.

One of the soldiers, 53-year-old Patrice Vincent, died of his injuries Monday evening. Police say the other soldier doesn’t have life-threatening injuries.

5. DoD news which explains that they don’t know how US weapons ammunition, grenades and so on, ended up in Islamic State hands. We can rest assured that they do not know.

6. Switzerland seems to have the kind of common sense that everyone used to have before cultural Marxism replaced it with sanctimonious suicidal thinking.

7. Alain Wagner puts it on the line as he demands that all organizations which try and implement or demand sharia law be labelled as counter-democratic and anti-human-rights.

Thank you M., Yucki, Richard, Maria J., GoV.,  and all who sent in materials. More to come almost certainly.

Canada. A spooky reflection of Little Rock Ark. 2009

Long time readers of my blog may remember a thing I ran on the sidebar of this site to get the US government to give two new recruits to the US forces a purple heart who had been shot by a convert to Islam while standing in a parking lot of a mall in front of a military office in 2009.

While the similarities are interesting it is the differences that really count in this case.

I ran that campaign because the US government was refusing to look at it as an act of war and so the soldiers were not given the Purple heart which they richly deserved and earned, especially considering the number of people that received one from injuring themselves on things like Coke machines. Seriously.

However as Canada’s government has already clearly acknowledged that this was indeed a terrorist attack I feel hopeful at this time that the two men who were attacked, and one who died, will receive all the benefits for themselves and their families that they would have received had this occurred in an officially designated combat zone.

Perhaps we should keep one jaundiced eye open on the news to make sure this is the case anyway. Political correctness and pressure from muslim groups surely will try and get this listed as ‘work-place violence’ or some other Obama brand, US style crazy deflection from reality. But I hope we Canadians have more sense than that and are capable of dealing with reality in the here and now.

Meanwhile, people may want to check out Point De Bascule which has a great set of resources on the Imam who preaches at the mosque that the jihadi who attacked those two men near Montreal attended.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sorrow for the loss, and respect for this serviceman who died in this jihadi attack as well as the other who was injured. A caller to Lowell Green’s show this morning had a great idea that all of us should show support by dressing in combat fatigues or otherwise in military style with the proviso that we do not actually wear a uniform if we are not in the forces. But cammo pants or jacket would be a good idea.

The real fast-and-furious. Islam attacks, we look the other way: Links 1 Oct. 21 – 2014

1. Canada used to have two rational newspapers. The Sun Chain and the National Post. In the last while, a few of us have noticed that one of the editors of the National Post, Jonathan Kay, seemed to have moved away from his usual highly rational positions on a number of subjects and towards a position we would expect from the Toronto Star or other left leaning newspapers. Today, Ezra Levant explains why. And it is extremely disappointing.

2. ‘He’s an idiot’, says family of the ‘Ginger Jihadist’ as they claim Australian teen who appears in ISIS video has been brainwashed

Ginger-haired Australian jihadist Abdullah Elmir, 17, has been condemned by his relatives over a chilling video in which he declares ISIS will not stop their murderous campaign ‘until the black flag is flying high in every single land’.

In a propaganda video for the terror group published on YouTube, the young white, Sydney born man calling himself Abu Khaled from Australia is flanked by other ISIS fighters.

(Could Eric Cartman have been wright about Gingers?)

3. It is with great sadness that we are informed that one of the two soldiers run over by a muslim in yesterday’s attack in a suburb of Montreal has died from his injuries. There is not much more to say about that. My condolences to his family and friends and his compatriots and brothers in arms. I would also like to thank him for his service to our country and I hope deeply that he is given all the military honors that should be bestowed to any serviceman who dies in combat, as that is without a shred of doubt what did happen.

Islam and the misery it spreads in the name of its whacky god and his psychotic prophet: Links post 1 for Oct. 21 – 2014

1. This is quite an explosion in Iraq. I wonder what they kept in that building. I wonder if the guy was from Greely?

2. Apparently this is a video made by the Kurds mocking the Islamic State. I could have sworn that I had posted it before, but I can’t find it, so here it is again, or not.

3. Muslim group in Australia holds public meeting to discuss Australia’s role in the anti Islamic-State coalition. Australian reporter made to sit at the back cause she is a woman.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott wants to ban Hizb ut-Tahrir, and has called them un-Islamic.

Sheik Ismail al-Wahwah mocked him for this.

“He’s a mufti too? He is takfir.” The word “takfir” signifies an “unbeliever” and the sheik is right — Tony Abbott is no authority on Islam.

For more than a decade governments have replaced the word “Islamist” with “terrorist” to avoid offending the religious or fuelling bigotry against innocent Muslims.

Sheik al-Wahwah said the police even asked him to wipe “blessed” from the meeting title “War to end a blessed revolution”.

4. ISIS forces launch multiple attacks on Kurdish territory in Iraq, officials say

(Video at site)

CNN) — ISIS militants launched about 15 near-simultaneous attacks on Kurdish forces in northern Iraq on Monday in what Kurdish government officials and the news agency Rudaw said was a fierce and renewed push for territory.

ISIS also launched attacks against Mosul Dam, a strategic prize, and also renewed its offensive on the Sinjar mountain range in northern Iraq.

5. ITV News investigation finds hundreds of child abusers walking free in Manchester due to police failings

Hundreds of child abusers are walking the streets of Manchester because police have failed to investigate claims of abuse, an ITV News investigation has found.

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) has been accused of covering up their failure to act on claims that gangs of Asian men abused young white girls over a 10-year period.

Victims say they have identified offenders but police have been reluctant to act.

Two former detectives have told ITV News that senior officers were not interested in following up allegations because the crime is “difficult to prosecute”.

GMP Chief Constable Sir Peter Fahy agreed that child sexual exploitation is a difficult crime to prosecute and claimed his officers “developed a mindset that victims in these sorts of cases would always been unreliable.”

6. ‘Apprentice jihadists’ train in French park

When officers got to the park they found at least six people “training for Jihad”, police sources told RTL radio this week.

The police had been called to the scene by local residents who had reportedly witnessed “bearded men dressed in djellabas” taking part in combat training in the park.

8. Religious muslims in Alepo in jihadi controlled areas ban the croissant

Croissants may look harmless, but a sharia committee overseeing a rebel-held area of Aleppo thinks otherwise. The judicial committee, Hayaa al-Sharia, banned Syrians from consuming the flaky pastries earlier this week. The committee isn’t taking a page out of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s book and banning croissants for their impressive calorie count, however — the committee announced that the moon-shaped pastry “celebrates European victory over Muslims,” Al Arabiya reported. Syria was a French colony until the mid-twentieth century.

6. Mauritania: The country where it’s apparently a crime to be rescued from slavery

(CNN) — Imagine being rescued from modern slavery, only to be charged with a crime.

That’s the apparent reality in Mauritania, the country with the world’s highest incidence of modern slavery. Located in West Africa, on the edge of the Sahara Desert, an estimated 4% to 20% of people there remain enslaved. It was the last country in the world to abolish the practice — in 1981. And it only criminalized owning humans in 2007. [...] Mbeirika Mint M’bareck, a 15-year-old girl, was rescued from slavery only to be subsequently charged with having sex outside of marriage, according to a letter activists drafted on her behalf. (It is unclear who fathered the child). That crime is potentially punishable by death by stoning, according to an expert I spoke with. The activists planned to send the letter to the country’s ministry of justice on Monday.

Islam defines itself by its actions: links post 2 for Oct. 20 – 2014

1. France unveils ban on immigrants whose ‘personal behaviour’ deemed a threat to national security

(I understand that France has also instituted a law saying that all farmers must install a sprinkler system and fire alarm in all barns that have burned to the ground)

European Union migrants could be refused entry to France if their ‘personal behaviour’ is considered a threat to ‘security or public order’.

The vaguely worded measure could be used to stop all kinds of undesirables entering the country, from those with criminal records to communities considered unable to integrate. Critics also believe it could be manipulated to stop almost any foreigner entering France, even those with EU passports.

It comes after the European Commission president, Jose Manuel Barroso, warned Britain that a cap on migrants arriving from neighbouring countries would be illegal.

French president Francois Hollande (left) and his Prime Minister Manuel Valls (right) have pledged new laws to ban foreigners from France

The soldiers were hit in a parking lot of a commercial plaza at around 11:30 a.m. ET. Both were injured, one critically.

The incident was raised in the House of Commons this afternoon by Conservative MP Randy Hoback, who questioned Prime Minister Stephen Harper about “unconfirmed reports of a possible terror attack” targeting members of the Canadian Forces.

This is how freedom solves the burka problem

Paris Opera House Expels Woman for Wearing Niqab after Cast Refuses to Perform La Traviata

When you let government solve a problem they often just create 3 more so you look back nostalgically at the days when you just had that problem to solve, which, in a macabre way, is kind of solving the problem in that it makes you wistful for such a simple one. Here is how actual people, when given choices, solve them. Congratulations to the French Opera company for this. It was a brave and powerful, and let us all hope precedent setting move.

H/T Bear

A Muslim woman wearing a niqab has been forced to leave a theatre in France after the cast refused to perform in protest against her attire.

The niqab is a traditional Muslim garment which covers the head and chest, with the exception of the eyes. It is illegal in France.

The incident occurred during the performance of La Traviata at Opera Bastille in Paris, the opera house’s deputy director Jean-Philippe Thiellay told AFP.

The episode is believed to have happened on 3 October. However, French media did not report it until Sunday [19 October].

The woman, from the Gulf State, was visiting France with her companion. She was asked to remove the veil or leave the theatre as “performers said they didn’t want to sing,Thiellay explained.

Compiling evidence on the nature of Islam: Post 1 for Oct. 20 – 2014

1. The Taliban toddler being trained for war who says he’s ‘going to shoot people’

Around three years old and holding a gun, this little boy is terrifying proof of how the Taliban is reasserting its grip on Afghanistan.

As Western troops prepare to leave the country after 13 years of war, sinister footage has emerged from one of the fanatics’ strongholds.

In the film, obtained by the BBC, the toddler declares: ‘I’m going to shoot people.’

VANCOUVER – A man who blew up a homemade pipe bomb in his own face in Vancouver’s Olympic Village early Monday morning won’t tell police why or how he made the explosive device.

Around 1 a.m. Monday morning, paramedics called police after they tended to the man at Columbia Street and West 1st Avenue and he admitted that the massive cut to his face was from a bomb, according to VPD spokesman Sgt. Randy Fincham.

(Here is a question: How is it in Canada where people spend years in jail just for illegal possession of a professionally built firearm and have no criminal record, this man is not being charged for building an explosive device and walking around with it in a public venue?)

5. ISIS Assessed to Have Sarin Nerve Gas Capability

The areas of Iraq that ISIS has conquered could give the jihadist army access to some 2,500 rockets containing the deadly nerve gas Sarin.

The nerve agent housed at the Muthanna State Establishment is left over from the time the United States invaded and then bombed the facility during the first Gulf War in 1990.

Last June, Iraqi officials had informed the United Nations that ISIS had access to the facility and its abandoned weapons, which the Iraqi government had not destroyed. The Iraqi officials said that through remote CCTV, they observed ISIS jihadists looting the partially destroyed equipment and abandoned ordnance before the signal was knocked out, Britain’s Daily Mail reported.

Thank you M., Yucki, Richard, TL., and all. Quite a day already.

Extraordinary MEMRI clip. A must see and must spread.

This very honest MEMRI clip from a former Iraqi MP on the Islamic State and their rationale. This man appears to be very reasonable as well.

Here is just one of the money shots from this interview:


The Fiqh, being sharia law and its demands and justifications for various actions, is, as he claims, more dangerous than nuclear technology. He is correct. A nation without Fiqh and with nuclear weapons may posses them for decades and not use them even in self defense. Israel is a fantastic example of that as they never even moved towards the button in wars that could be called existential. But now imagine a nation with both. And then we know why the world must not be apathetic on the matter of the Iranian bomb.

Islam continues to disgust, horrify and degrade humanity: Links 2 – 2014

1. 22 Killed in Farmers’ Market Attack in Xinjiang’s Kashgar Prefecture

Four ethnic minority Uyghur men armed with knives and explosives attacked a farmers’ market in northwestern China’s unrest-plagued Xinjiang region this week, leaving 22 people dead, including police officers and the attackers themselves, according to police Saturday. [...] China has accused “terrorists” and Islamist insurgents seeking to establish an independent state for the persistent unrest in Xinjiang, where an anti-terror campaign has been underway since May,

Uyghur groups have blamed the violence on heavy-handed rule, including violent police raids on Uyghur households, restrictions on Islamic practices, and curbs on the culture and language of the Uyghur people.

2. Some good news. It would appear that the Islamic State is starting to take Hizb’allah on directly. Who knows. It might be Miller time for the IDF!

3. Here is a video uploaded recently that M tells us is a decapitation of a living human being for the ultimate in victimless crime, ‘Blasphemy’. M also supplies us with an excellent reference for how Islam legally views blasphemy. From a cursory reading it appears that a person can be murdered for offending any of the various gods and avatars of Islam even if they are utterly unaware of doing so or the prohibition on speaking negatively about them.

4. ‘Bad hijab’ link to acid attacks on Iranian women

Tehran (AFP) – A series of acid attacks on women in the historic Iranian city of Isfahan has raised fears and prompted rumours that the victims were targeted for not being properly veiled.

Police have declined to comment on a motive but suspects have been arrested and an investigation is ongoing, General Hossein Ashtari was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency.

He said four acid attacks had been reported in Isfahan, 450 kilometres (280 miles) south of Tehran, but he gave no other details.

The violence led to chatter on social networks that there had been up to 13 acid attacks against women drivers who were “badly veiled” with accompanying warnings against leaving car windows open.

An Iranian military official said Tehran has proof that militants are entering Iran from Pakistan to carry out attacks.

“We have provided information and complete documents about the infiltration of terrorist elements [from Pakistan into Iran] to political and security officials to be pursued through diplomatic channels,” he said.

Araghi’s claim comes one day after Pakistan’s Frontier Corps said Iranian border guards opened fire at a patrol van, killing a member of the Frontier Corps and wounding three others.

All three girls, aged 15-18, are of Somali heritage, according to the daily; two were sisters.

The three attempted to enter Syria via Turkey – boarding a flight from Toronto to Cairo, then from Cairo to Istanbul – before being apprehended by border officials in Turkey after the girls’ parents alerted authorities.
