Media continues to indulge in victim blaming and highly selective rationale for guilt and much more: Links 3 on May 6 – 2015

1. German arrests over ‘terror’ plot

German police have arrested four people suspected of plotting to attack Muslims and asylum seekers.

Prosecutors said that three men and one woman were accused of founding a far-right group and procuring explosives.

They added that a previously unknown group, the “Old Schools Society”, had been planning to attack mosques and hostels for asylum seekers.

(I hope the Germans are prepared to build a large number of ‘jihadi and counter-jihadi’ prisons with halal and secular meal plans respectively)

2. Libyan soldiers being trained in the UK ‘behaved like hunting dogs to trap man and rape him after slipping out of their barracks and going into Cambridge city centre’

Two Libyan soldiers who were training in Britain acted like ‘hunting dogs’ before taking it in turns to hold down and rape a man after leaving their barracks unsupervised, a court heard today.

Moktar Ali Saad Mahmoud, 33, and Ibrahim Abugtila, 23, left their base at Bassingbourn Barracks in Cambridgeshire to meet their alleged victim, who had left a wedding very drunk, it is claimed.

The pair had been undergoing training in Britain as part of an agreement by the UK government to help war-torn Libya after the 2011 collapse of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi’s regime.

(Didn’t Libyans do something like that to Que’daffy as well when they caught him? Must be part of that multicultural enrichment we hear so much about from the Libyan traditions)

3. Islamic State recruiters’ arrested in Bosnia

The police also confiscated weapons and propaganda materials during the raids.

They come after a gunman shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is Great) attacked a police station, killing an officer before being shot dead last week.

Bosnia-Herzegovina is made up of two semi-autonomous regions – the Bosnian Serb Republic and the Bosniak-Croat Federation

4. FBI connecting attack in Texas with the Islamic State?

5. Pamela Geller on Ezra Levant.

(At last a rational discussion about the attack in Texas)

6. Poster for free-speech forum sets off debate at University of Minnesota

The poster, which first appeared in January, prompted hundreds of complaints from Muslim students and others for reproducing a controversial illustration of the prophet Mohammed from the French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo.

But it’s the university’s response to the complaints — just weeks after the massacre at Charlie Hebdo — that drew fire from some faculty members.

After initially demanding that the posters be taken down, university officials quickly rescinded the ban, calling it a mistake. Then the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action investigated and advised the dean of liberal arts to disavow the use of the offending image and “use your leadership role to repair the damage” it caused in the Muslim community.

Jane Kirtley, a professor of media ethics and law, said she was taken aback by the U’s response. “There is no question in my mind that this [poster] was protected speech,” Kirtley said

7. One leftist author feels parents should feel guilty for conferring an advantage to their children by reading bedtime stories, which has shown to be very good for children.

(It’s a brave new world)

Gelonesi responded online: “This devilish twist of evidence surely leads to a further conclusion that perhaps — in the interests of levelling the playing field — bedtime stories should also be restricted.”

Swift said parents should be mindful of the advantage provided by bedtime reading.

“I don’t think parents reading their children bedtime stories should constantly have in their minds the way that they are unfairly disadvantaging other people’s children, but I think they should have that thought occasionally,” he said.

8. One of the Texas terrorists who attacked the Moetoon contest, blows up the myth that these people are unpopular or disadvantaged or poor. Again. 

Soofi studied at the $20,000-a-year International School of Islamabad from 1992 to 1998, where contemporaries said he was funny, popular and charming and showed no inclination towards extremism.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, one told AFP Soofi was “quite suave and charismatic” and something of a “ladies’ man” as a student.

“Whatever fundo [fundamentalist] indoctrination occurred, [it] happened after he graduated and moved to USA — here he was simply a cool kid with a bright future,” the contemporary told AFP.

9. The Gateway Pundit publishes the Islamic State threat with target states

The attack by the Islamic State in America is only the beginning of our efforts to establish a wiliyah in the heart of our enemy. Our aim was the khanzeer Pamela Geller and to show her that we don’t care what land she hides in or what sky shields her; we will send all our Lions to achieve her slaughter. This will heal the hearts of our brothers and disperse the ones behind her. To those who protect her: this will be your only warning of housing this woman and her circus show. Everyone who houses her events, gives her a platform to spill her filth are legitimate targets. We have been watching closely who was present at this event and the shooter of our brothers. We knew that the target was protected. Our intention was to show how easy we give our lives for the Sake of Allah.

We have 71 trained soldiers in 15 different states ready at our word to attack any target we desire. Out of the 71 trained soldiers 23 have signed up for missions like Sunday, We are increasing in number bithnillah. Of the 15 states, 5 we will name… Virginia, Maryland, Illinois, California, and Michigan. The disbelievers who shot our brothers think that you killed someone untrained, nay, they gave you their bodies in plain view because we were watching.

Thank you Wrath of Khan, M., Gates of Vienna, Perfect Child, Richard, and many more. One has to agree with the Islamic State on one thing. The next 6 months will be interesting.

  1. google 2.5% of the adult U.S. population – about 6 million people – believe that they were abducted by extra-terrestrials in the last yea

    Whether that figure is verifiable, we seem to be managing OK despite their faulty belief , neurological condition, or putative alien visitors.

    His threat sounds like some Tokyo Rose escapade. Who trained him?
