1. For all of those who think that Colonialism was a bad thing and that the Sykes Picot agreement was a bad thing, please watch this:

2. Irving City Council backs state bill Muslims say targets them

Alia Salem, who directs the North Texas chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, said the Irving council had a choice between diversity and bigotry.


IRVING — The intense national spotlight on Islam has shifted to Irving, where Mayor Beth Van Duyne has accused mosque leaders of creating separate laws for Muslims and the City Council voted Thursday to endorse a state bill that Muslims say targets their faith.

The dispute has made Van Duyne a hero among a fringe movement that believes Muslims — a tiny fraction of the U.S. population — are plotting to take over American culture and courts.

“It fuels anti-Islamic hysteria,” said Zia Sheikh, imam at the Islamic Center of Irving. “Her whole point was to rile up her supporters. … The problem is we become the whipping boys.”

(I believe even a cursory look at how islamic law is carried out in all muslim areas will show exactly who gets whipped and by whom, as well as why)

3. Global war will result in ‘banner of Islam’ over White House, top Iranian official vows

– The Washington Times – Tuesday, March 17, 2015

A top special operations aide to Iran’s leader says his troops are in a global war that will one day bring “the banner of Islam over the White House.”

Ali Shirazi is the Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s representative on the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds Force, the overseas operations branch that trained Iraqi Shiites to kill American troops and is active throughout the Middle East.

The Middle East Media Research Institute said Mr. Shirazi on Feb. 26 spoke at a ceremony attended by the families of Iranian “martyrs” who died fighting overseas.

4. EUTimes: Moscow bomb shelters begin to fill as Russia prepares for war

(No idea if this is a good source or not. I am posting cause one wouldn’t want to miss this one if it is. Hopefully someone will post in the comments what they know about this site, the EU Times)

The Ministry of Defense (MoD) is reporting today that President Putin has “effectively warned” both the United States and European Union that British Prime Minister David Cameron “must be removed” in order to avert the catastrophic consequences of total war.

According to this report, President Putin and other top officials were put under the “protection” of the MoD during the past fortnight after intelligence reports revealed a planned nuclear first-strike against the Federation planned by Prime Minister Cameron due to occur this week…and which we had previously reported on in our 14 March report titled Russia Warns “State Of War” Exists As UK Nukes Prepare First Strike.

To if the United States has been complicate in this planned nuclear attack by Prime Minister Cameron against the Federation this MoD report leaves uncertain; based upon information obtained by Federal Security Service (FSB) Director Alexander Bortnikov after his private White House meeting with President Barack Obama a few weeks ago.


5. AP: UN Stalled Declaration of Ebola Emergency for Fear of Interfering with Mecca Pilgrimage

Emails obtained by the Associated Press show discussions among the senior administrators of the World Health Organization from as early as June 2014, in which officials refused to yet declare a state of emergency in West Africa over the Ebola outbreak for fear of angering local governments and interfering with the annual Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca.

Patient Zero in the current Ebola epidemic, which has to this date claimed at least 10,000 lives, was diagnosed in Guinea and died on December 6, 2013. It was not until February that the virus showed signs of spreading rapidly. By April, hospitals in the United Kingdom issued an alert to workers to be aware of Ebola symptoms. In June, Doctors Without Borders warned the situation had gotten “out of control.”

6. Yemen: Over a hundred dead as suicide bombers strike Shia mosques in Sanaa *GRAPHIC*

Thank you Ox AO, M., Draculea, WTD., CB Sashenka and all who have helped today, including Dr. Warner and Robert Spencer whom I asked for their advice as to why the school forbade observing the eclipse, either through pinhole cameras or as a video live but only as static images in parts on a screen.

An update to the last post on the muslims telling schools that no one can watch the eclipse through a pinhole camera. This video sent by Ox AO may offer some insight as to why other than the material already posted.

It may be that as islam is conclusion based reasoning at its most barbaric and violent, no phenomenon which contradicts islamic principles may be observed in the context of secular science as that would be blasphemous. We know that islamic law is full of rituals to be done during an eclipse but certainly these rituals would be done in the context of islamic cosmology. As the school would teach the actual facts which contradict that, this may be prohibited.

In other words, it was forbidden for the students to watch the eclipse in any manner in the context of secular science as it provides proof of the actual workings of the cosmos and therefore would challenge faith. The exact same reason Al Azhar, the world’s most prestigious islamic learning institute, will not allow the teaching of philosophy as it forces rational thought. So watching the eclipse in a secular British state school would be anathema and fully forbidden. There will be more and more and more of this soon.

  1. #4 A lotta articles about war with Russia for a news outlet called “EU Times”. It’s obviously a Russian propaganda outlet.

    The front page has a bunch of camouflage articles but the “breaking news” section on the right is all about war with Russia and ONLY about to war with Russia. The 7th from top “Breaking News” story is 5 days old. Funny how there hasn’t been any “breaking news” in Europe or America in the last 5 days.

    One of the “breaking news” Stories is “Future Russian Army: Anywhere in World in 7 Hours”. That’s hardly the subject for a news alert.

    So the site is Russian propaganda.

    • I am very sorry to report that it is much worse than that. Its a news junkie trap.

      If you clicked the word, ‘source’ on the bottom of the article it launched a script that made your machine part of a bot farm which sends out viagra emails etc.

      I have removed the link and done a strike through.

  2. I don’t know about today, but it used to be that Modern Orthodox Jewish kids learned dinosaurs and Haredim didn’t. That was the test.

    I once got into trouble at summer camp for explaining my amber necklace to somebody’s son.

  3. Bobby Jindal was correct in say to look at Europe and now Muslims have forced their ideology onto the countries where Muslims have gained a strong foothold. Muslim here in America are gradually forcing the issue. Example is Mayor Deblasios giving Muslims two holidays where schools will be closed.It won’tbe long till the savages start demanding prayer rooms in schools. Seperation of Church and state doesn’t apply to Islam it seems. If that doesn’t say much then you have your head in the sand.

    • It’s a hoot:

      During one Russian news broadcast, a woman related how Ukrainian nationalists had crucified a child in the eastern Ukrainian city of Sloviansk. When Alexei Volin, Russia’s deputy minister of communications, was confronted with the fact that the crucifixion story was a fabrication, he showed no embarrassment, instead suggesting that all that mattered were ratings. “The public likes how our main TV channels present material, the tone of our programs,” he said. “The share of viewers for news programs on Russian TV has doubled over the last two months.”

    • Not to spoil your reading of the article, but here’s one grand paragraph:

      Finality: Israel should demand up front a Palestinian letter stipulating that the Palestinian Authority recognizes that the purpose of negotiations is the termination of all claims between the parties, and that any agreement will have to contain an “end-of-conflict” declaration. Nothing less. Netanyahu should drive home this point: Only a crystal clear message from the Palestinians that the conflict is permanently and fully over might merit the ceding of territory by Israel. This reflects the spirit behind Netanyahu’s justified demand that the Palestinian recognize Israel as the legitimate homeland of the Jewish people.

  4. Merical of Qur’an… I didn’t mean to get you off track on why the solar eclipse can’t be viewed by Muslims(I mean Kafirs.) I was just making fun of them with that video.

    This is the normal state of the Moon and the sun:
    “It is not permitted to the Sun to catch up the Moon, nor can the Night outstrip the Day: Each (just) swims along in (its own) orbit (according to Law). ”

    Clearly meaning they are in the same orbit. (which is why I put that video up)

    The reason Muslims can’t view the eclipse because the of the Islamic version of the apocalypse.
    “He asketh: “When will be this Day of Resurrection?”
    But when sight is confounded
    And the moon is eclipsed
    And sun and moon are united,”

    Since nothing happened on the first eclipse after the ‘prophet’ said that Islam treats eclipses as a sign of the coming apocalypse. They must do special ceremonies here is how one goes:
