1. The Iranian regime, properly called, “The Islamic Republic of Iran” (Obama is the only US leader ever to call it that) is applying genuine islamic principles to fight the Islamic State, which is using the same principles to fight them. This video is graphic
(Shabnam also inform us from a reliable source that million copies of Khamenei’s ” Letter to World Youth” were distributed in India by local Hezbollah, inviting Indians to convert to Shi’ism. Article on letter here)
2. Sunni muslims destroy stuff they identify with “polytheists” (which could be Shiia muslims or Catholics or whoever they pretend are polytheists)
3. Michael Welner does quite a good interview on the motivations of Islam, the Islamic State and people who bugger off to go join it. He clearly gets it although he comes at it from the POV of a psychiatrist, which I believe he is)
4. Carleton University is having its ‘muslim awareness week’ this week. Here is the Facebook page. For those near the university that want to ask questions about Islam from an organization tied to pretty much every atrocity islam has perpetrated in North America in one way or another for the past good long time, this is your chance.
The focus this week is on ‘mercy’. What they likely won’t say, is that in islam, mercy means that their god won’t screw you over as badly as he could, which is more awful than you can imagine.. All scales start at zero and work downwards from there in islam.
5. Meanwhile in Iraq, Islamic State launches an attack in the green of night
(Looks like someone gave them night vision tech)
The UK government plans to release the long-awaited conclusions of its review of the Muslim Brotherhood “as soon as possible,” the UK Home Office has told Ahram Online.
The review’s conclusions are to be made public “alongside the government’s new counter-extremism strategy,” a Home Office spokeswoman has confirmed.
In April last year, UK prime minister David Cameron ordered an internal government review into the Muslim Brotherhood.
The objective was to review the “philosophy, activities, impact and influence on UK national interests, at home and abroad, of the Muslim Brotherhood and of government policy towards the organisation.”
It took the review team, led by Sir John Jenkins, former British ambassador to Saudi Arabia, until July 2014 to finish its work.
But, about eight months later, the government still has not released the review’s final report.
The government has informed the House of Commons [the UK parliament] that concerned departments are considering “broader policy questions emerging from the review.”
7. Finnish MPs threatened by jihadi who left for Islamic State. He specified a few MPs who are known to be resistant to islamic penetration. The threats are segments of koran, 9:5 and 9:29
An annual report delivered recently to the US Senate by James Clapper, the director of National Intelligence, removed Iran and Hezbollah from its list of terrorism threats, after years in which they featured in similar reports
In describing Iran’s regional role, the report noted the Islamic Republic’s “intentions to dampen sectarianism, build responsive partners, and deescalate tensions with Saudi Arabia,” but cautioned that “Iranian leaders—particularly within the security services—are pursuing policies with negative secondary consequences for regional stability and potentially for Iran.
Thank you Shabnam, M., Don C. Tundra T., Richard, and many people who are not inkisted because I built up a 10 item post starting yesterday afternoon and off and on through the night and hit publish and for the second time the whole post vanished along with the drafts of it and it was lost. But thank you for sending in the links, I will try and find them again for this post. There is a story about a guy who had what looks like a panic attack on an aircraft and was removed from it. Personally I don’t think there is anything there but here is the video for anyone who wants to see it. Also, here is an interesting comment that was left under this post in a Swiss Counter-Jihad blog. I will post the comment in French. Perhaps someone can offer a good translation in the comments.

Il n’est pas pertinent de distinguer entre une idéologie et ses vecteurs. Pas de musulmans, pas d’islam. Quelle que soit par ailleurs la profondeur de la connaissance que des non-musulmans peuvent acquérir à son ou leur sujet.
Si nous admettons que l’islam est en guerre avec le reste du monde, nous devons trouver la rigueur intellectuelle nécessaire pour admettre que les musulmans sont nos ennemis aussi. Avant, nous serons désarmés.
Bien sûr, il faut distinguer entre les jihadistes armés et les apologistes pacifiques, entre les terroristes et les simples porteurs d’eau. Mais nous n’aurons aucune chance de l’emporter ou seulement de survivre convenablement sans poser, une bonne fois pour toutes, que les musulmans, tous les musulmans, même voire surtout ceux qui condamnent l’extrémisme, sont nos ennemis. Mortels.
