1. Senior Politician Rubaei Threatens U.S.: “Friendly Fire” Incidents Will End Your Presence in Iraq
2. First official statement from the NSA on the attack on their facilities today
(I have no idea why it is in this format)
Video on this issue where the usual denials and obvious untruths are made by government. The new Normal in Obama’s fundamentally changed world.
It’s not clear why the men were trying to enter the facility, but one senior U.S. official called it a “local criminal matter.”
(It is interesting how before anyone ever knows anything about an obvious terrorist attack the one thing they always do know is, its not a terrorist attack. Also, what does “dressed like women” mean? Did they wear miniskirts, a tight blouse with spaghetti straps and lipstick? Or was it a couple of burkas?)
3. Obama toys with cutting Israel adrift in the Security Council.
Immediately after Israel’s March 17 election, Obama administration officials threatened to allow (or even encourage) the U.N. Security Council to recognize a Palestinian state and confine Israel to its pre-1967 borders. Within days, the president himself joined in, publicly criticizing not just Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, with whom Obama has had notoriously bad relations, but sectors of Israeli opinion and even Israel itself.
4. Montreal: Hamza Chaoui sends Denis Coderre legal notice over radicalization comments
Controversial imam Hamza Chaoui has had his lawyer send a letter to Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre asking him to retract statements he made in public — or face a lawsuit.
Chaoui said he was unjustly accused of being an agent of radicalization by elected city officials and the mayor, and if he doesn’t get a public apology from Coderre he’ll sue for damages plus interest.
(I believe that every aspect of the appearance of the religious tard denotes degree of religiosity and commitment to jihad etc. For example that cap may mean he has been to the haj in Mecca. I am still looking for a good site that gives a good list of the meanings of how the facial hair is kept or not and the details as they grow increasingly important for the other people in Western cities)
5. ‘Anti-Islamic’ blogger hacked to death with meat cleavers by three Muslim attackers in Bangladeshi capital weeks after U.S. writer was butchered for criticising extremism
A blogger was hacked to death by three Muslim attackers in Bangladesh’s capital because of his anti-Islamic writings, police said today.
Washiqur Rahman Babu was declared dead as he was taken to a government hospital shortly after being attacked in Dhaka’s Tejgaon area.
Two suspects were captured and three meat cleavers were recovered, Dhaka Metropolitan Police official Biplob Kumar Sarker said.
The captured suspects were students at separate Islamic schools and the third suspect fled the scene, he added.
The killing took place a month after a prominent Bangladeshi-American blogger known for speaking out against religious extremism was hacked to death in Dhaka.
More later. Hopefully the Geert Wilders video from Vienna will be ready tonight. Although I am editing the German version and the subtitling will be the last phase, I can already tell ilinksts a great speech and it was warmly received.
Thank you Buck, Tundra T., M., Richard, Yucki, Wrath of Khan and all.
Britain: Deal Must Put the Bomb Beyond Iran’s Reach
British Foreign Secretary says he believes a deal with Iran could be reached, insists it must place an atomic bomb “beyond reach”.
Spengler has a delightful little piece:
The Middle Eastern Metternichs of Riyadh
Compared to the White House foreign-policy camarilla–McBama and his Weird Sisters–the Saudis turn out to be Middle Eastern Metternichs. The 10-nation coalition that Riyadh assembled to counter Iranian intervention in Yemen has a broad mandate to contain Iran throughout the region.
The Judenrat squeaks:
What to Worry About in an Iran Nuclear Deal
A good deal makes the Middle East a safer place. A bad one makes matters worse. Here are some issues to keep in mind if nuclear talks lead to a provisional agreement.
Another entry from the Judenrat:
All of Your Nuclear-Deal Questions, Answered
In which I try to explain that things that appear to be contradictions sometimes aren’t.
Sorry, this is old, March 2.
It looks like they are extending the deadline until June, and Iran says that the destruction of Israel is non negotiable. I posted the links in the 31 March thread.
Never was “negotiable”.
Obama’s peace for our time
Mr. President, are you absolutely sure you’ve got this right?
He doesn’t want peace in our times, he wants a nuclear armed Iran.
Horovitz is a big gun in LSM artillery.
That’s why his questions are framed so gently, so tentatively. He knows that, but he’ll want to be inteviewing presidents long after Obozo is out of office.
Red Cross aid worker killed in Mali (BBC, March 30, 2015)
“A Red Cross employee has been killed and another injured in a gun attack by suspected Islamist militants in Mali, the aid organisation says. Armed men opened fired on an aid vehicle as it travelled from Gao to Niamey in neighbouring Niger to pick up medical supplies. The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) said in a statement that it was “profoundly dismayed” by the killing. Islamist militant group Mujao told AFP that it had carried out the attack….”
Crisis Guide: Iran
The Council on Foreign Relations has a real treat – a series of beautifully presented videos. I don’t know how to embed them, but here’s the URL:
It’s beautiful to look at, but by the end of the first segment we’ve had to listen to ‘religious scholar’ Reza Azlan (‘The University of California, Riverside professor also had some strong words for those who are asking for Muslims to condemn the [Charlie Hebdo] attacks: “The voice of condemnation is deafening and if you don’t hear it you’re not listening.”’), someone from the Soros-and-others-funded Brookings Institute, associates of both the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the U.S. Institute of Peace (The Rohingya invaders in Burma are ‘a problem ready-made for U.N. mediation; Burma’s government would be well-advised to invite the assistance of the U.N. immediately’) and some other academic from Columbia U (‘ Ivy League schools Columbia and Cornell were among the American college campuses with the “worst anti-Semitic activity” in 2014,’ according to the David Horowitz Freedom Center). It looks worthwhile, but I think has be watched with especially acute double vision.
Reza Aslan Dances for Peace
Robert Spencer has exposed him in numerous articles, but of course that wouldn’t keep Aslan from being called on as an expert.

Channel 4 – The invasion to ISIS: a brief history of violence in Iraq
Learn how the 2003 invasion of Iraq, by the US and its allies, led to sectarian violence, terror and sowed the seeds of the Islamic State.
Our International Editor, Lindsey Hilsum, recounts her experiences of Iraq during the first months of conflict and explains how ISIS has grown from the remnants of a defeated Al-Qaeda group and gained a stronghold in the heart of Iraq and Syria
@ 2 – You are asking real good questions, questions we will never get the answers to, Obama and company will do anything to prevent the citizens of the US from knowing the number and severity of the terror attacks while he is in office.
