For the ‘maybe there is a god’ file an Al Queda training base is hit with bubonic plague. forty die and many more give themselves up as martyrdom suddenly didn’t seem nearly as good as it did before they got sick. Apparently even the fear of waterboarding is nothing compared to the rapid painful death of the black plague.
The Montreal Gazette reports that the city of Montreal in light of recent Muslim kill the jews and subjugate the infidels marches has decided to make wearing a face mask illegal during a demonstration mirroring similar laws in New York City. I suspect we may be too far gone for that. The police have neither the resources the will or the instructions to actually represent Canadian or QUebec values when they are facing tens of thousands of mostly non Canadians starting a new intefata. I suppose the one interesting thing for most of us is any questions many of us may have about how Hitler got into power and how the whole thing slid from a strong reasonable proud Germany to the Nazi nut regime and so on will all be answered as we see many normally liberal democracies slide towards theocratic fascistic states. Its quite instructive. It turns out that it is in fact not with a bang but with a whimper.
Speaking of Germany Nazism and sliding to fascism here is a rather depressing set of videos with some translation on Gates of Vienna. You may have to scroll up a bit as Gates links tend to take you to the second half of an article rather than the top. It’s well worth watching these two vids and reading what translation is available. Who would have thunk this could ever happen in Germany?
‘Khaybar, Khaybar, ya Yahoud, jaish Muhammad sawfa yaoud.
Which translates into “Khaybar, Khaybar, O Jews, the army of Muhammad will return.” That is a reference to Muhammad’s genocide on the Jews of Khaybar, and thus an implicit threat against Jews in general.
In between the first Hitler salutes in this video and the march with the Khaybar references are several short speeches, captured on video here:
Israeli’s react to the new rocket attacks on them by Hamas by mobilizing Israeli civilians voluntarily and providing blankets milk and other supplies to Gaza civilians who are in need as a result of the recent war. Think anyone will get the message? Doesn’t matter. That isn’t why they are doing it.
Captured Hamas map shows how they maximize civilian casualties by mining civil buildings with explosives. This wasn’t so much sloppy as it was intentional.
Hamas turn a Gaza neighborhood into a warzone. This map, confiscated Wednesday (Jan. 7) by IDF paratroopers operating in the north of Gaza, shows how Hamas uses an entire neighborhood, rigging it with explosive devices and putting the entire civilian population at great risk.
Last and far from least some really good news. Thousands of Turkish intellectuals organize and sign petition to acknowledge the genocide against the Armenians by the Ottoman Turks.
