FIA Peshawar Inspector Naseer Ahmed and Sub-Inspector Adnan appeared before the court and informed about the involvement of Darul Uloom Haqqania’s students in the killing of Benazir Bhutto. Both the state witnesses also presented related evidence to support their statements.

During the hearing, Darul Uloom Haqqania’s director education Wisal Ahmed also recorded his statement.

3. Below is an excerpt from an article from Radio Vatican which deals with the fact that the Red Crescent, the muslim fun house mirror version of the Red Cross, refuses to give any aid to the Christians in Syria, and has not done so for over 4 years.

Translation thanks to Bear:

[…] You are now entrenched under islamic pressure. is there at least some kind of humanitarian aid that gets to you?

Here is something I would like to say: the red cross helps, giving money to the red crescent. but the red crescent gives absolutely nothing to Christians. Yesterday their was the red crescent, UNHCR etc that wandered around in front of televisions (cameras) that spoke as if that had helped people. However they had not distributed not even a syrian pound up till now, the Red Crescent has given nothing to Christians and that has been going on for four years. (since the beginning of the war). I have said it on the big Arab channel and I am telling you now also. The red cross must know. They must know. Here those in charge are all in the muslim brotherhood or related. I say this out loud because i find this revolting and exasperating.

4. Nigel Farage: UK mosques have been infiltrated by hate preachers

Nigel Farage has claimed the mosques of Britain have been infiltrated by criminal hate preachers and warned that religious minorities needed to understand the law of the land.

The Ukip leader was speaking to a US audience about Islamic extremism before his appearance at a hard-right Conservative conference in Washington on Thursday, where he has been given star billing.

5. 32,000 emails recovered in IRS targeting probe amid allegations agency chief may have lied

IRS watchdog recovers 800K ‘lost’ Lois Lerner e-mails

Investigators said Thursday they have recovered 32,000 emails in backup tapes related to the Internal Revenue Service targeting of conservative organizations.

But they don’t know how many of them are new, and told a congressional oversight committee that IRS employees had not asked computer technicians for the tapes, as directed by a subpoena from House oversight and other investigating committees.

That admission was in direct contradiction to earlier testimony of IRS Commissioner John Koskinen.

“It looks like we’ve been lied to, or at least misled,” said Rep. John Mica, R-Fla. at a congressional hearing Thursday evening,

J. Russell George, the IRS inspector general, said his organization was investigating possible criminal activity.

The emails were to and from Lois Lerner, who used to head the IRS division that processes applications for tax-exempt status. Last June, the IRS told Congress it had lost an unknown number of Lerner’s email when her computer hard drive crashed in 2011.

(ANSAmed) – ROME –  The Islamic State (ISIS) has killed 15 of the Christians it took hostage in northeastern Syria earlier this week.

The news was given by Archimandrite Emanuel Youkhana to the Catholic organization Aid to the Church in Need on Thursday. ”Many of them,” he said, ”were defending their villages and their families.” One woman was beheaded in the village Tel Hormidz and two men were shot to death. There is no information at the moment on how the other 12 were killed. Youkhana added that the number of those known to have been taken hostage had risen to about 350. In addition to the hundreds previously reported, some 80 inhabitants from the Tel Jazira village, 21 from Tel Gouran, 5 from Tel Feytha and 3 from Qabir Shamiya have been taken. Almost all are being held in the Sunni Muslim village Um Al-Masamier.

A suicide bomber killed at least 17 people at a bus station in Biu, witnesses say, while a second bomber was caught by a crowd and reportedly beaten to death.

In Jos, three bombs thrown from a car killed 15 people at a bus station and the university.

8. Obama appoints Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim to head “Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications”

Rashad Hussain was previously the Obama administration’s special envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), the thuggish international organization that is engaged in a full-scale campaign to intimidate Western governments into adopting hate speech codes that will effectively quash criticism of Islam – including jihad violence perpetrated in its name. Rashad Hussain is an apposite choice for this position, since several years ago he defended a notorious U.S.-based leader of a jihad terrorist group.

But someone doesn’t want you to know that, and made a clumsy attempt to cover it up.


Thank you Tasha C., M., Wrath of Khan, Richard, Yucki and many more. Email is coming in reliably from comments now at the new address. So here’s hoping that it continues to work well for a while.

  1. 3/ I don’t see anything in the hadith collection I’m perusing this morning to suggest that the Muslims are under an obligation to help out the kuffar in such circumstances. I’m sure the Christians there have been invited repeatedly to join Islam, and generations of their ancestors before them. Allah would frown on Muslims wasting so much as a band-aid on unbelievers who have committed such violence against him. If they did, it would be one more sign of Islam’s unparalleled fairness and generosity.

    19. The Chapters On Military Expeditions From The Messenger Of Allah

    Chapter 23. What Has Been Related About Accepting Gifts From The Idolaters

    Gifts from non-Muslim kings and head of states can be accepted for diplomacy and to develop good relations to save the Muslims living near the borders. In the greater interest of Muslims it is allowed to accept gifts from non-Muslims.

    Chapter 24. About The Gifts Of The Idolaters Being Disliked…

  2. 2. Mark Steyn: “Ihave quoted before my old friend Theodore Dalrymple on the purposes of lies in totalitarian societies:

    In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, nor to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is to co-operate with evil, and in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control.”

    Islam is a house of emasculated liars.

  3. Mark Steyn is right, it is unfair to Chamberlain to compare Obama to him, for the comparison to be valid he would have had to be a Nazi agent all along.

    Yes Lois Lerner lied, we all knew that the big question is will the emails show that she was obeying Obama’s orders and if/when they do what will happen?

    One Moslem appoints a jahidist to a position where he can sabotage the US war effort, does this really surprise anyone

  4. NORWAY – Mullah Krekar Arrested for Praising Charlie Hebdo Attack

    Kurdish Norwegian-based Mullah Krekar was arrested at his home in Oslo on Thursday evening after telling Norway’s TV Channel (NRK) that the Charlie Hebdo terror attacks in Paris made him “happy” and that anyone who made cartoons of the Prophet of Islam deserved to die.

    Krekar, an Iraqi Kurd whose real name is Najmuddin Faraj Ahmad, was charged for “inciting criminal offences” for the extreme statements, which caused uproar in Norway when the interview was aired on Wednesday.

    “The cartoonist has become an infidel at war, and therefore it is permissible to kill him,” Krekar told the interviewer, arguing the attacks were justified under Islamic law.

    “As he has trampled on our dignity, our principles and beliefs, so he must die. Anyone who does not respect 30 percent of the world’s population has no right to live.”

    As a result he said, he saw the in January attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, which left eleven people dead, as something to be celebrated.

    “When it comes to what happened in France, naturally I am happy that it happened,” he said.

    Vegard Rødås, an inspector with the Oslo police, said that Krekar had in no way resisted arrest.

    “Krekar was arrested outside his apartment without any drama,” he told NRK.

    Krekar’s lawyer Brynjar Meling said that his client had been well aware that he risked arrest for his provocative statements.

    “Krekar is familiar with the consequences of expressing himself as he has done,” Meling told NRK. “He has chosen to say what he said.”

    Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg weighed in after the controversial interview was aired to remind Norwegians that Krekar’s beliefs were not shared by mainstream Muslims.

    “I know that these statements are not representative of most Muslims in Norway,” she said. “We have all witnessed major commitment for community and unity – and the distance from extreme attitudes, most recently with the ring of young Muslims around the synagogue in Oslo.”

    Norway’s authorities ruled that Krekar should be expelled from he country on national security grounds as long ago as 2003, but because he faces the death penalty if he is returned to Kurdistan Region, they are prevented from doing so.

    Krekar was released from prison in February, after which police planned to put him in an internal exile, sending him to the small town in northern Norway.

    • Which should remind us all that there are Kurds and there are Kurds.
      I tend to sympathize with them as a whole, until I remind myself that Kurds had a supporting role in the Armenian Genocide.

      • The Kurds can be useful allies as long as we remember that they want their independence from various countries not for the jihad to stop. And we must remember that like all other ethnic groups there are factions that do not support the main goal.

    • “The cartoonist has become an infidel at war, and therefore it is permissible to kill him,” Krekar told the interviewer, arguing the attacks were justified under Islamic law.

      “As he has trampled on our dignity, our principles and beliefs, so he must die. Anyone who does not respect 30 percent of the world’s population has no right to live.”

      Didn’t I read, translated, that the Pope said this too? Death for Breath?

  5. Bruce Thornton: ‘I am Charlie’ —- Brown Variety

    ‘In one of Peanuts’ favorite running gags, Charlie Brown is baited into kicking a football held by the malignant Lucy, only to have her snatch away the ball at the last minute and send the hapless chump flying. This dynamic has defined the West’s relations with the Islamic world since the terrorist Palestinian Liberation Organization initiated the modern age of terrorism in the 60s.’

      • Politics is not a game for the faint of heart, and it is the game of the possible not the idealists, he played it the only way he could.

        • I think so, with minor exceptions.
          Bibi’s got to consider all the conflicting realities, some downright unsavory. Caroline is non-compromising; that’s part of the reason she shouldn’t be thrust into office.

  6. YEMEN – Rival protests grip Yemen in wake of Shiite rebel power grab as al-Qaida kills 4 soldiers

    SANAA, Yemen – Tens of thousands of Yemenis marched Friday in the capital, Sanaa, in support of Shiite rebels who captured the city last year. The demonstrators denounced alleged “foreign conspiracies” — a reference to international backing for Yemen’s embattled president, who managed to escape house arrest at the hands of the rebels earlier this month.

    Meanwhile, rallies against the rebels known as Houthis took place in several other places across the country, including cities of Taiz, Hodida, Bayda and Dhamar.

    The rival rallies underscored the depth of the crisis that has gripped Yemen after the Houthis overran Sanaa last September and declared in January that they have taken over the country.

    President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who managed to escape Sanaa and house arrest at the hands of the rebels, has established a base in the southern city of Aden.

    The international community has backed Hadi, and the U.N. envoy to the country is trying to negotiate a solution to the crisis, including relocating peace talks to outside of Sanaa. On Thursday, the Houthi rebel leader, Abdel-Malik al-Houthi, claimed Saudi Arabia and other international powers are pushing for a division of Yemen along regional and sectarian lines.

    Yemen’s deepening turmoil, with its threat of full-blown sectarian warfare between Shiites, who make up a third of the population and reside mostly in the country’s north, and Sunni tribes in the south, has appeared to benefit al-Qaida’s Yemeni branch, considered to be one of the terror network’s most dangerous.

    Al-Qaida militants have targeted both the Shiite Houthis on one side, and Yemeni officials and government troops on the other side.
