If you read the news, then you already know that the greatest tragedy of the decade was the unfathomably sad story of Tahera Ahmad, a Muslim activist who wanted an unopened Diet Coke, but didn’t get one.
Why? According to her, it’s Islamophobia. Either that or aliens.
Meanwhile Tahera Ahmad was pushing a boycott of Ayaan Hirsi Ali by retweeting a call that she not be honored at Brandeis.
2. Gates of Vienna does a great editorial on Diet Coke Gate. The pause that discriminates against tards.
3. I thought I would share a comment directed at me as part of a discussion on the protest at the Arizona mosque. Does anyone else find anything perhaps, instantly hypocritical about this post? For my response (as Generic News) see this link.
The footage, filmed by a defector from the jihadist group, shows the boy being beaten while he hangs by his wrists.
The UN has accused IS and other armed groups in Syria and Iraq of torturing and killing children.
Children have also been recruited, trained and used on the battlefield.
Another teenager told the BBC how he fought and killed for the al-Qaeda-linked al-Nusra Front at the age of just 15, and that when he switched to IS he found 13-year-olds being indoctrinated.
5. Four minute short of the video on muslims in Minnesota who prefer sharia to US law even though they admit that they prefer freedom and life as a muslim is very good in the USA
Note: This analysis takes on renewed significance in light of the Iranians’ announcement this week that they intend to build two new nuclear reactors, and the Obama administration’s insistence that such a clear expansion of the Iranian nuclear program does not constitute a violation of the Joint Plan of Action to “freeze” the program while its ultimate status is being negotiated. The facts on the ground are busy changing under our feet, with almost no notice by the Western media.
It was evident a year and a half ago that there would be no restoration of Syria, as we know it, under the Assad regime.
Hashim Hanif Ibn Abdul-Rasheed had four knives taped to his legs when he attempted to hijack an Ohio plane in Januray.
Abdul-Rashid also had a gas mask, other masks, computers, cameras and cellphones in his illegally parked SUV.

A week before the country’s June 7 parliamentary elections, Turkey‘s prominent whistleblower Fuat Avni has claimed that there is soon to be a mass detention of journalists and members of the judiciary as part of government efforts to muzzle media outlets which are free, independent and critical.
The whistleblower, known on Twitter by the pseudonym Fuat Avni, said some 200 people will be detained in a major sweep that has been ordered by the embattled President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, who is reportedly furious over the publication by the Cumhuriyet daily of photos of weapons being carried to radical groups in Syria by trucks run by Turkey’s intelligence organization.
Avni said Erdo?an has become very concerned over a possible trial in the International Criminal Court for sending arms to Syrian groups, which allegedly included al-Qaeda and the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Turkey’s president appears to want to divert public attention by launching the en masse detention of journalists, which is supposed to include the chief editor of Cumhuriyet, Can Dündar.
Thank you Wrath of Khan, M., antikythera, Tundra T., and all who sent in materials. Turkey is going south fast as the expression goes and rumors from well placed sources indicate that this summer we should expect to see leftist and islamic group complicity to create terror and general public unrest in the US and elsewhere. Nothing most of us here do not know, but it is uncomfortable when the stuff of wild conspiracists comes back at you from people in a position to know.
Also we saw today the tactics of a muslim leftist alliance in Denmark evolve to crush the weekly demonstration for women’s rights etc. by For Freedom. Quite interesting. Hopefully a video of the actual speeches etc. taken close enough that the university style, chant disruption doesn’t interfere with what was said. But for those present, they were very effective.
It is a story about how a Turkish news org. busted the current Erdogan government of shipping large amounts of weapons to what appears to be the Islamic State illegally and using fake Intel officers. (Something one would expect more from a place like the US these days rather than Turkey)
More to come shortly.
