1. Sacrilegious caricatures: Bounties announced on Charlie Hebdo cartoonists, publishers

(And now we fully understand what globalization means. The people we made rich with our technology and capitalism and fair dealings by buying resources otherwise useless to the locals without Western inventiveness, then use that wealth to destroy us)

PESHAWAR / SHABQADAR / KP: Several bounties were announced on the staff of French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on Friday as protests against its publication of sacrilegious cartoons continued across the province.

Charsadda

Religious parties Jamaat-e-Islami (JI), Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) and Ahle Sunnat Wal Jamaat (ASWJ) announced a bounty of Rs100 million on the people who made and published the caricatures.

Hundreds of activists led by JI’s Abdul Mastan, JUI-F’s Amir Hidayatul Haq and ASWJ leaders protested against the cartoons on Friday in Shabqadar and adopted a declaration urging people to boycott French products.

3. BREAKING NEWS: Japan attempts to verify video claiming ISIS have beheaded one Japanese prisoner and demanding release of female suicide bomber in exchange for life of the second 

The Japanese government has branded a new audio recording purporting to be from one of the hostages pictured with Jihadi John ‘outrageous and disgusting’, but cannot confirm if it is genuine.

In the recording, a voice claiming to be that of Kenji Goto, 47, one of the Japanese men who appeared in the latest Jihadi John video, says his fellow captive Haruna Yukawa has been killed.

He blames the death on Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, and says he will be killed as well if ISIS’s new demand to release a failed female suicide bomber is not met.

The Japanese government has condemned the message, but say they cannot verify its authenticity after allegations that the Jihadi John video was also stitched together from several recordings.

This still image apparently showing Kenji Goto holding a picture of Haruna Yukawa's body appeared alongside the recording, but some have said it looks photoshopped

  1. AT LEAST OUR PRIME MINISTER SPEAKS WITH CLARITY AND VOLUME TO THE PROBLEM OF THE MUSLIM AND ITS ISLAM……..

    NOTHING OF THE KIND CAN BE SAID FOR THE WEAKNESS SOUTH OF OUR BORDER…..

    Behold the handiwork of Barack Hussein Obama.

    You, the reader, and I know what the world should know and that difficulty posed by the cowardice of our elected representatives should not pose an obstacle.

    Barack Obama is a pathetic homosexual communist and his tired one-liners are a thin veneer to his treason and sedition. He is an injurious obscenity, and this walking, talking obscenity is only shadowed by this mongrel’s hatred of the United States of America.

    To wit;

    Obama is the bastard son of a self-loathing white-guilt ridden whore; Stanley Ann Dunham.

    He is the bastard son of an indeterminate number of sires owing to his whore mother being enthusiastically mounted by every available African communist on two continents.

    He is a devout communist with utterly no business experience.

    Obama is a hater of true masculinity; true men unmarred with the filth of sexual perversion and cowardice are a goad to this conniving weakling.

    He and his vulgar wife of convenience are despisers of symbols of national pride, taking pride in their public displays of contempt for the American flag.

    He has used the authority of his office to cover both his treason and criminality and that of virtually the entirety of his administration.

    He counts his closest friends among treasonous convicted domestic terrorists (Bernadine Dohrn, Bill Ayers)

    Obama has filled the highest office of the United States with the Muslim; those fanatical followers of a 7th century lunatic who have sworn to destroy the United States and do every single non-Muslim American grievous harm.

    He has ravaged the institutions and agencies of American intelligence, the military and all federal law enforcement agencies leaving them completely unable to make the slightest reference to nor even speak the name of the threat that both the United States of America and the free Western world faces at the hands of the Muslim and its Islam.

    He has taken every measure to demonize and vilify decent American patriots whose love of country is seen as injuriously obscene by this homosexual vulgarity who trespasses on 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

    He has at every turn taken every opportunity to put the United States of America, the greatest republic in the history of Mankind, on her knees with her enemies daggers at her throat.

    He is the very personification of America’s anathema.

    The time has long since past to purge human garbage and his administration from the White House.

    Citizens need to roll up their sleeves, they need to come together with supportive elements of the United States Armed Forces and drag treason personified from the White House in chains and stand them on trial to face charges of high treason and sedition, and then, have the courage to carry out the sentence passed by a qualified court of legal authority and jurisdiction.

    I am sure once this administration has been incarcerated and the judicial process is underway, I am sure there will be no shortage of cowardly politicians who will come tip-toeing out of the shadows to support braver men and women, to support their betters.

    Only one question remains; When?

      • LOL – as yucki said somewhere else he (Obama) cannot even hold it in for these last 2 years.

        Don, I share your sentiments, if not yet quite your eruditely feisty prose, but I’m on the way 😉

        • @Rita……

          Erudite?……no Rita…..

          Have you not had enough of the words of politicians and lawyers?

          Have you not had enough of those who ignore threat, ignore treason, ignore sedition and who speak in musical circles around that which seek our anihilation?….. or in the alternative, as said Cicero, those who speak in tongues familiar to all while serving the interest of the enemy?……and God knows how many of those walk the halls of power in our nation’s capital….

          I recall the words of Marcus Aurelius in his reflections, “Meditations”, Book 8, Para 30

          “Speak both in the senate and to every man, whoever he may be, appropriately, not with any affectation: use plain discourse”

          and

          “Men exist for the sake of one another. Teach them then or bear with them”

          Read my thoughts on traitors……I will reprint it below…

          Speak plainly Rita……..tell your fellow citizens who you are, what you stand for, what you love, what you will do to protect what you love but above all, tell your enemies the very same, and then look them in the eyes and snatch the life from their bodies.

          Rita, have we not had enough of those who speak but say nothing?

    • Don,

      I understand your realization the Communists have taken over the government and are systematically destroying every cultural institution America has, and Obama had an identity crisis in childhood at every level to latch onto a dream of equality and inclusion.

      But it is you rejection of a human being because they were begot from people evolved from different environments around the world that intrigues me, you I assume part Neandertal. It ir right that I call you a “Nedder” and believe you lesser than me? Can you please explain this prejudice to those you term mongrels?

  2. Kurds urge respect for Muslim prophet in Turkey rally

    Diyarbakir (Turkey) (AFP) – Tens of thousands of Kurds staged a protest Saturday in Turkey’s southeast against French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo’s cartoon portrayal of the Prophet Mohammed.

    Some 70,000 protesters gathered in the Kurdish majority city of Diyarbakir shouting slogans such as “Allahu Akbar (God is the greatest),” “Devils of Charlie, do not defame my prophet!” and “Damn those who say ‘Je suis Charlie’.”

    […]Some protesters chanted: “Long live Hezbollah!” during the rally which lasted almost two hours, according to an AFP correspondent.

    • With respect. “Allahu Akbar” means “Allah is greater”, not “God is the greatest”. It means, “My religion is better than your religion”…

      When Egyptian President Abdel al Sisi said that Islam was infuriating the entire world, this is exactly what he meant. Now for all I know, the Japanese may have turned into mush-cakes like the rest of us, but if WWII was any indicator, the Japanese may well be the toughest fighting race on the face of the earth, and they might well be about to become very angry at the religion of peace. We can only hope.,,

      Remember, the Muslim terrorists only do what they do because we allow it. We have terrorism by choice, not by bad luck or misfortune or anything else. If the rest of us ever decided to make them not exist, they would no longer exist…

      Perhaps the Japanese and the Egyptians could join forces and rid the world of this horrid disease…

      • No Chris, Japan can’t afford the luxury.

        Though you haven’t heard them whining, Japan’s been hit by a series of monumental natural disasters. That’s besides ongoing issues with Fukushima. Times are tough.

        For sure they’re in the process of militarization, but their focus is China, North Korea and the closing of the American security umbrella. That supersedes all other national priorities at present.

        Japan has been working quietly with Israel for years, trying to stay under the radar because of their dependence on Mideast oil. Then Bibi and wife paid a high-profile state visit to Japan. They managed the Japanese protocol to perfection, which was widely appreciated in Japan.

        Then Bibi and Abe clicked. It was one of those MIT-moments, like when everything extraneous falls away except the equation on the blackboard, and two people bond. There’s a personal friendship that’s a comfort to both, I imagine.

        Israel is helping Japan play catch-up with the latest defense technologies. They’ve concluded several big-ticket purchases and have R&D contracts that go way into the future. Non-military high-tech projects are already underway.

        I don’t know anything about the individuals involved, but they don’t seem to be deeply enmeshed in Japan, Inc. So Japan will absorb this incident as they have other, bigger losses, and move on.

    • “Kurds urge respect for Muslim prophet in Turkey rally”

      Are “we” (as in we from the West) arming these Kurds? Quicksands…morasses…whereever one steps in to the swamp populated by mohamedanians of any colour.

  3. #2
    Rant mode (seemingly my default position atm) on:

    what is not mentioned in this report is that the ones “arrested” were a few hapless anti-Jihadist protesters – REAL Australians, yet these vermin who murder, rape and incite hatred, occupy now also the streets in Australia which really is not short on wide and empty spaces from whence to point their arses heavenwards. Furthermore they desecrated an AUSTRALIAN WAR MEMORIAL simply by their “allah-u-akbar screeching” presence (unappetising to say the least). Their spokesturd (to borrow from Sheik Yermami) stands right on this War Memorial to spew forward his crap. He actually officially defends Honour Killings. And what is more than nauseating is that they are being molly-coddled even by our relatively newly elected CONSERVATIVE Prime Minister.

    Message for you Mr. Abbott: your special and preferential treatment of the muslim/islamist enemy will be your downfall. You are losing your own constituency. ?I have stopped defending you, soon I might just join your loud and increasing critics.

    //Rantmode off.

  4. @Rita…….

    Here it is……..speak plainly Rita, speak plainly so that both friend and foe know you for who, exactly, you are, for what you believe in, for who you love, for what you love……..and for what you will do to protect all that you hold dear.

    TRAITORS AMONG US

    The Traitor.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”

    Hello there……its me again……..Don Laird.

    As I grow older there is less and less in this life that surprises me.

    Many of the questions I had as a child have been answered. I have come to understand, not completely, the human condition. Of the many facets of the human condition I now know the many faces of treason, sedition and treachery. I now know the timeless currency of cowards and collaborators.

    I am in the fight.

    I am in the midst of the manifest lunacy of a 7th century murdering psychopath.

    I am with privilege, the privilege of generals and politicians, the privilege of being out of range.

    I watch hundreds of videos. I watch as the collection of the blackest lies ever told is raised high and called “the word of Allah”. I watch as dusky hued barbarians and savages scream their bloodlust oath of allegiance to a murdering coward. I watch as they, craftsmen in the art of death, ply their trade in every corner of this earth. I watch the bullets stir the cranial contents of the terrified and the innocent. I watch as fevered lips whisper words of desperate last moment prayers to the God they are soon to meet. I watch as the throats are cut and the arterial spray glistens in the sunlight. I watch the terrified eyes glaze over, the head comes away from the body of the innocent victim. I watch as it detonates and in a blinding flash and shower of razor sharp glass and shrapnel, multitudes borne away on rivers of blood and death. I watch as tears of shame and anguish run rivers down bruised cheeks, as nervous fingers fumble with handkerchiefs whilst those moments of agony, flooding back, torrential, tormenting, are relived once again, once again as the raped and the savaged tell their horrific stories of utter degradation, humiliation and loss. I listen to the cries of orphans and widows as they beg us, beseech us not to turn away, not to abandon them, and I am moved. As my eyes fill with their anguish and my ears with their cries I can smell the blood, I nearly wretch and choke at the stench of the rotting flesh; I am with them. Yet I am impotent in the face of their need, in the face of their loss; my hypocrisy, my betrayal, my cowardice know no bounds. I stand on the edge of an abyss of madness, blackest despair my companion, my soul slips slowly away, all I have left is my pen and my paper.

    In the deafening quiet of those moments of reflection, in those moments of almost obscene voyeuristic intrusion, as salt into the wound, there rises above the cries of the dead and dying, above the cries of the battered and the bruised, another voice. Shrill and shrieking it demands to be heard.

    In spite of all that truth, all that agony, the voices of the apologists for the crimes of Muslims, the sneering voices of Leftist/Liberal apologists for Muslim crimes against humanity, seek to drown out the agony of the widows and the orphans, seek to excuse, seek to mitigate, seek to smear the excrement of the self-loathing politically correct on the memory of the butchered, seek to turn our gaze away from those mass graves, seek to whitewash 1400 years of Muslim war and terrorism, seek to turn our attention away from those same Muslim hyenas that now walk among us here in North America.

    I now know the many faces of the treasonous, the seditious and the treacherous, they are legion, they move among us.

    You see, the IS, the Islamic State is nothing new. The IS is in fact simply acting in accordance with the commandments of the Koran and the supporting Islamic jurisprudential text, the Sira and the Hadith.

    The IS is simply providing us with a modern day manifestation of the 7th century when the mass murdering, child molesting, warmongering lunatic named Muhammad started claiming he was getting special messages from God, when he started spreading his charming brand of poisonous lunacy, spewing it into any ear that would listen and cutting the heads off of those who knew him for the impotent, cowardly psychopath he was.

    In the end, the IS, the Muslim, can no more be blamed for their acts of murder and madness than one can beat a pig for rolling in mud or a dog for howling at the moon; its in their nature to maim, to murder, to rape, to loot, to kill and to conquer, its in their nature, its who they are, its what defines them and its what they are commanded to do by the Koran.

    But the crime, the greatest crimes of all are the crimes of endorsement, the crimes of avocation, the crimes of mitigation, the crimes of wilful blindness, the crimes of ignorance, the crimes of the complicit, all of these crimes, the crimes of the Leftist/Liberal, the crimes of the sentimental dog-catchers, these are the crimes that wound the deepest, they are the most grievous of crimes.

    From our Leftist/Liberals in the media, in our House of Commons, in our Senates, in our Congress in our courts, in our bureaucracy, in our intelligence infrastructure, in our law enforcement agencies, in the Legal Industry, in our schools, all of these, treasonous and seditious handmaidens each and every one to the Muslim as it seeks, with a murderous Grand Jihad, to destroy “the miserable house of the West from within and by its own hand”.

    I wrote a small rambling essay called “Of Muslims, Dog-Catchers, Patriots and Vigilantes”. Below is a quote from that little ramble that deals with the treasonous, sentimental dog-catching litigators, that provide such passionate defence and avocation of murderers and terrorists and seek to loose among the innocent, the human equivalent of rabid dogs; the Muslim and its Islam.

    As an example consider the following excerpt from “Of Muslims, Dog-Catchers, Patriots and Vigilantes”;

    “In a small town the local dog-catcher has rounded up a half a dozen mutts. Dogs with distemper, rabies and dispositions that have resulted in several attacks on local denizens. Sitting in his chair one evening he ponders the fate of the dogs; warm and fuzzy little creatures with begging eyes and whimpering that tugs at his heart strings. Overwhelmed with sentimentality, he swings open the doors to the cages whereupon the dogs immediately run amok in the town, badly mauling several children and killing several senior citizens.

    What do you think would happen to the dog-catcher after the townsfolk had regained their senses?

    I can absolutely guarantee you that, if he survived the enthusiastic beatings he would get from the townsfolk, he would suffer a withering course of criminal indictment, incarceration upon conviction and a blizzard of civil actions that would leave him penniless.

    So then, consider the actions of dog-catchers like Romeo Dallaire, John Norris, Dennis Edney, Brydie Bethell and Nathan Whitling, as their vigorous defence of an unrepentant terrorist, Omar Khadr, has now returned him to Canada and will, possibly within months, see his 40 year sentence for murder and terrorism eviscerated and him walking the streets of Toronto on paths of rose petals strewn by thousands of his admirers, strewn by thousands of “good Muslims”.

    The horror of the hypothetical-

    In the days that follow the “liberation celebrations”, little Omar Khadr’s disciples, ever the busy little bees, are working overtime to bring to the attention of the filthy infidels, the error of their ways. Christ and Christmas reviled by Khadr’s Kid’s, they select an appropriate time of the year. The bomb detonates at Toronto’s Royal Winter Fair, the explosion turns the surrounding area into a maelstrom of razor sharp glass and shrapnel, shredding flesh to bone. Those close to the center of the blast evaporate, others turn to jelly. Blood runs rivers and the screams of the dying, piercing the air, shred the sanity of the survivors. The will of Allah and Muhammad is done and Omar Khadr, flanked by his poisonous mother and siblings, turns to Mecca, kneels and gives thanks to his God.

    The city is terrified, the country is terrified, and the long black line of cars bears the victims to their final reward. Another page in the book of Western understanding of Islam now written.

    Now comes the ability to hold those responsible for the loosing of hyenas’ amongst the sheep to account. Unfortunately, the penalties levied against the dog-catcher are not available as mechanisms of redress and accountability in dealing with those whose litigious contortions set loose madmen.

    The Mainstream Media grinds into action its game of “Distract and Dissuade”.

    Politicians will rise in legislatures and Parliament and, with hand on heart, gripping the latest poll numbers, whilst dabbing crocodile tears, give fiery speeches and eulogies, merely self serving exercises in hypocrisy.

    Terribly alone in the darkness of living rooms, men sit and, fingering the photographs of dead wives and children, look, through the fish-eyed lens of tear stained eyes, at those faces they will never see again. They hear the echoes of the voices of those they will never speak to again. And, awash in grief and comfortless agony, they know who is responsible for their loss and the darkness that surrounds them. They know who opened the cage doors.

    In the light of this, I ask you this question; for right or wrong and knowing it is a criminal act, would not the men, now widowed and having buried their loved ones, abandoned by the politicians elected to protect them, abandoned by the duplicitous and deceitful media, abandoned by the courts, abandoned by spineless agencies of law enforcement, abandoned by the avenues of redress held out to them as their only alternative, would not they be justified in hunting down the self righteous dog-catchers and killing them?

    Right or wrong, the actions of the men would be condemned as criminal but understood as infinitely and righteously just by millions of Canadians.”

    Excerpt from –“Of Muslims, Dog-Catchers, Patriots and Vigilantes”

    Moving on………

    When the bomb goes off, and it will, in Nathan Phillips Square in Toronto killing hundreds, a bomb set by the Muslim. When a dozen women and children are hacked to death at a coffee shop by the Muslim, oh yes they will. When a shopping mall is littered with the dead, mowed down in the fashion of the Westgate Mall in Nairobi. When hundreds of terrified shoppers in the West Edmonton Mall are herded into the skating rink cum killing field and butchered. When a Canadian or American soldier is beheaded on one of our streets. When our daughters, our wives, our sisters, our mothers are turned into whores for legions of grunting, drooling Muslim males. When all we have built, when all we hold dear has been smeared with the excrement of Islam; let us remember.

    Let us remember the faces.

    Let us remember the names.

    Let us remember the smug faces of John Norris and Brydie Bethell, lawyers known for defending the butcher of a feeble grandmother, known for defending a vicious little convicted murderer and terrorist, Omar Khadr.

    Let us remember the face of the arrogant Nathan Whitling, fresh from turning loose Alberta’s Travis Vader on a disclosure technicality, Travis Vader, the alleged butcher of an Alberta grandmother and grandfather, Mr and Mrs McCann. The same Nathan Whitling who fawned (s) over the murdering terrorist, Omar Khadr and his family of Islamic vipers.

    Let us remember the face of the immigrant litigator Dennis Edney, a lawyer who licked (s) the boots of Omar Khadr and the entirety of the Khadr family, a family of terrorists. A lawyer who attended and attends meetings with Muslims directly connected to terrorist groups. A lawyer who stands in front of those same Muslims and weeps rivers. The same lawyer who weeps not for one single victim of the horrors of 9-11, but who weeps rivers for a murdering terrorist Omar Khadr and who seeks to set the same free among unsuspecting Canadians.

    Let us remember the face of lawyer John Phillips, of the law firm Phillips/Gill. Let us remember this litigating parasite who has launched a multi-million dollar lawsuit against Canadians on behalf of the terrorist Omar Khadr and his family.

    Let us remember the canons of law enforcement whose cowardice, corruption, politically correct bureaucracy and legendary mockery of leadership, has left their charges, young police officers, culturally self-loathing, historically illiterate, terrified of reality and with their throats laid bare to razor sharp knives of Muslim orthodoxy.

    Let us remember the faces of tenured treachery, of the academic treason that stalks the hallowed halls of higher learning, the faces that instil in our children a seething self-loathing, that instil in our children a seething hatred of their country and culture, that instil in our children a seditious Marxist dogma cloaked as “enlightenment, academic discourse and debate, that bid our children to destroy and devour all we have built, all that has made our democratic and civilized societies the greatest success story in the history of Mankind.

    Let us remember the faces of Barack Obama, of Justin Trudeau, of Olivia Chow, of Libby Davies, of Eric Holder, of Joe Biden and of all the others who sing the praises of the Muslim and who, at the direction of treasonous Imams and Mullahs, brick by brick, dismantle our nations, who gleefully emasculate our nations defences, who smear handfuls of the poisonous rhetorical excrement of a 7th century lunatic on everything we hold dear, who lay waste to all our sacred traditions and ideals and all to assuage the bruised egos of mass murdering, pedophile psychopaths and lunatics.

    Let us remember the faces of Peter Jennings, of Peter Mansbridge, of Wendy Mesley, of Kevin Newman, of Christiane Amanpour, of Hubert Lacroix, of Dawna Friesen and the blood spattered faces of all the other Leftist/Liberal media talking heads who have for decades, holding the licence of stolen credibility and the privilege of celebrity, from the bully-pulpit of mass media, lied, whitewashed, obfuscated, excused, mitigated, propagandized, ignored and in many cases, whole heartedly endorsed, the murderous actions of the Muslim and the poison of the Koran.

    Let us remember them, each and every one and all of their crimes with clarity and particularity.

    In the end, we cannot blame the Muslim and their Leftist/Liberal handmaidens for their crimes, crimes of commission and crimes of omission. Its what they are commanded to do, its what defines them, its who they are, to the very core.

    The blame for the madness of the Muslim and its Islam as it seeks to destroy all we have built, as it seeks to murder us, as it seeks to make us slaves, rest squarely on our shoulders, it always has. For it is we who have allowed the treasonous and treacherous to open the cage doors and set the killers loose.

    So then, let us acquit ourselves of the burden of citizenship in a democracy, of citizenship in a republic. Let us remove from our midst those who seek our destruction.

    So then, let us deal with the Muslim and its Islam, but let us never forget the faces of treason, let us never forget the faces of the traitors.

    Let us remember the faces.

    Let us remember the names.

    Food for thought, catalyst for action.
