1. Title of video is: “Edl go nuts…” when in fact, given what they are actually protesting, their reaction is about 1/1000th of what it should be in as much as all authorities from police, city councils, children’s aid societies and so on all didn’t just fail in the jobs for which they are grotesquely overpaid, but aided and abetted the people who turned something like one million british children into sex slaves, drug addicts and prostitutes for muslim gangs. I think holding a few signs and showing some middle fingers would be more accurately defined as ‘feeble response’ as opposed to “going nuts”
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria on Saturday released a grisly video showing 25 Syrian government soldiers being executed by teenagers in the ancient amphitheater in the city of Palmyra.
The video documented an execution that reportedly happened shortly after the group captured the city on May 21.
ISIS have also begun destroying some of the ancient relics from the site, although the video released Saturday could suggest that the militants wish to keep some of the ruins intact as a convenient place to carry out executions.
Yet another poll of “regular” Muslims seems to show that a shockingly high number actually agree with Muslim extremism. This time, a poll finds that a whopping 42 million support the creation of a worldwide caliphate, an Islamic order that would outlaw all other religions.
Many non-Muslims console themselves with the assumption that “most Muslims” don’t support extremism or terrorism. But nearly every time a poll is taken, this notion that Muslims stand four square against extremism is shot down.
(And these are just the muslims that answer honestly. Imagine a real poll done with a polygraph)
4. Earlier today a tweet came in with an Arabic or Farsi press release claiming that the US had asked for a meeting with Hizb’allah, a banned terrorist group that the US technically cannot meet with. Hizb’allah refused and as this was interesting i sent it to our own translator to be checked to make sure it said what the email claimed it did.
In fact it said quite a bit more:
The tweet said:
U.S. requested a meeting with Kataib Hizballah, an Iranian proxy and U.S.-registered terrorist group. They refused
After sending the page to Ritamalik and asking if this is indeed what it says, I got the following response:
Yes! It says that Jaafar al-Hussein,i who is the Hezbollah brigade’s spokesman, has announced the refusal of the request and has said that if Americans repeat a request for a meeting again they are going to come out and reveal the reason for the meeting request that the Americans have confidentially told them. This means that they are more than denying the request for meeting by the Americans, but they are even black mailing them into backing off.
One can only shudder at the thought of what the Americans confidentially told them to get a meeting. Who are they throwing under the bridge to get a legacy deal for Obama? And legacy is the most benign assignable motive.
Turkish nationalists protesting China’s treatment of ethnic Uighur Muslims attacked a group of Korean tourists in the heart of Istanbul’s old city on Saturday, mistaking them for Chinese nationals.
Hundreds of angry protesters marched towards the Topkapi Palace on the banks of the Bosphorus Strait in a show of solidarity with the Turkic Uighurs, who complain of cultural and religious suppression under Chinese rule.
Shouting “Allahu Akbar” (God is the Greatest), they attacked some Koreans outside the Topkapi Palace, which is visited by thousands of tourists every day.
Thank you M., Richard, Rita M., Gates of Vienna and many more.
More to come for sure.
