6. Man brazenly parading ISIS flag outside Big Ben is stopped by police… but then allowed to walk free as they rule he ISN’T breaking the law

This is the shocking moment a man paraded past the Houses of Parliament draped in an Islamic State flag with a young girl on his shoulders – before being allowed to walk free by police.

The man could be seen walking past a group of scouts near Big Ben with the little girl waving a smaller version of the jihadist group’s flag just days before the anniversary of the 7/7 terror attacks.

Police confirmed that they stopped the man in the busy tourist area on Saturday, but did not arrest him as his actions were deemed ‘within the law’.

The decision has been slammed on social media, with many saying it makes they feel unsafe on the streets of Britain.

(The problem is not that he wasn’t breaking the law, there is a statute somewhere on flying the banner of a state with which you are at war. The problem is no one knows if muslims are uniquely exempt from this law like they seem to be from all the rest of them)

Thank you M., Shabnam, Richard, Wrath of Khan, Vederso, and many more and more to come.

  1. 5 – I remember those days well, just like I remember 1979 when Iran occupied the US Embassy, the Congress of Vietnam vets was meeting then, they overwhelmingly voted to petition Congress to reinstated the draft and draft us (the Nam era vets) first. The Dems in Congress didn’t have guts enough to do that, and Carter agreed with them.

    • That Adams and Jefferson died on Independence Day, within hours of each other, always blows my mind.

      I almost cried reading the passage. Because I think we’ve become terminally divided after so many years of betrayal. The racial divide is the worst ever, and the left has managed to heap noxious Islam on top of that. When you stay awake worrying about the cop on the beat, you know something’s very wrong.

      Universities – where I found myself and most everything else – have become ugly and alien. I’m working with others to try to protect Jewish kids from the real dangers facing them on campus. It looks very bad.

      What will become of us as a country when this generation of college kids – who’ve learned nothing but fairy tales and lies – starts to take control of the works? That’s what truly terrifies me.

      • I have no doubts that the United States will survive as a nations, the question is will it be a nation we want to live in.

          • Yes and no, if the future I see comes about we will still be a mobile society and will return to the melting pot. If I am wrong in what is coming your idea is one of the possible scenarios of what will happen.

    • OT Richard,
      There’s a heated discussion going on among Orthodox bloggers everywhere… about…bacon!

      This is so funny because nobody has any idea what they’re talking about. They don’t claim to, but since this is, in principle, knowable, I thought to ask someone who definitely knows.

      - YOU -

      Does all “bacon” come from pigs exclusively? Is there, say, “macon” from mutton? Have you ever heard of swine-flesh being addictive? What part of the animal’s body is the “bacon”?

      You can read one of the discussions at: …and it’s kosher!
      http://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2015/07/and-its-kosher.html#disqus_thread

      • You have bacon from pigs and then you have the fake bacon from turkeys that is suppose to be healthier for your heart, the turkey bacon tastes the same but I am not sure where they get the fat they add to the turkey, it may be from pigs. The only other source of bacon I have ever heard of is from bears, I have never eaten it but it is suppose to be delicious.

        The cut of mean that bacon comes from is (I believe) called brisket on other animals and tastes good but has a lot of fat in it just like bacon.

        • Thanks for all the research! I want to save the illustrations, though maybe I’ll encript the pig in a .dmg.

          The discussions are hysterical. “The pig is one of the cleanest and most intelligent of animals. Too good to slaughter

          • just for its meat.”

            “Swine tastes like human flesh. In Jewish communities where it’s unavailable, the craving can lead to cannibalism.”

            “Once you start eating pig, you’ll be lost. It’s the slippery slope: Boys will marry gentile girls who know how to prepare it, and we’ll go extinct as Jews.”

            “It is written that for every non-kosher food there’s a kosher one that tastes just like it. We just don’t know because we’ve never tasted the outlaw food.”

            • I have never heard of a craving for pork leading to cannibalism but do know that human flesh is suppose to taste a lot like pork, that is why it is nicknamed long pig.

              The closest I can come to a kosher food like pork is the Turkey bacon and turkey sausage, I don’t know of anything else that tastes like pork. Chicken on the other hand has snake and lizard that tastes like it. Some people say squirrel . tastes like chicken but I have never thought it does.

      • I have never heard of pork being addictive but I do like the taste, in fact since most pork is tendered then beef I often choose pork over beef, and right now would love a bacon and tomato sandwich even though I know there is way too much fat, especially since I had chicken livers last night.

  2. EGYPT – Alleged official document stipulates terrorism terminologies for Egypt-based journalists

    Reportedly handed out at an Egyptian Foreign Ministry presser, a document circulating on social media among journalists instructs media workers on dropping religious references in reports on terrorism

    Some Cairo-based foreign correspondents widely shared Sunday through their social media accounts an alleged official document that defines different terrorism-linked terminologies.

    A foreign correspondent in Cairo, who preferred to remain anonymous, told Ahram Online that many foreign journalists received the document Saturday during a presser held by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
    ***************************************************************
    The document stipulated that the foreign correspondents should not use terminologies that are “religiously based or faith oriented, carry in its fold negative connotations that are largely based on heinous stereotypes and ill-informed predispositions.”

    The document listed several terminologies “not to be used in describing terrorist groups,” with a brief definition of each, such as: Islamists, Islamic groups, jihadists, jihadis, shiekhs, emirs, ISIS, ISIL, Islamic State, fundamentalists, puritans and literalists.
    *****************************************************************
    Other terminologies to be used in describing terrorists were also present in the document, as long as they aren’t “associated with any religion or affiliated with any faith, even if these groups falsely claim to base their horrifying acts on religion.”

    The document urged correspondents to use the terms “terrorists, extremists, criminals, savages, murderers, killers, radicals, fanatics, rebels, slaughterers, executioners, assassins, slayers, destroyers and eradicators.”

    On Thursday, Egypt’s army spokesperson, Bridger General Mohamed Samir, blamed the local press for repeating “wrong” death tolls published in the foreign media covering Wednesday’s deadly confrontations between Islamic State affiliated militants and the Egyptian army in North Sinai, which left 205 militants and 21 military officers and soldiers killed, according to official records.

    While the military released initial figures Wednesday night saying that the confrontations left four officers and 13 soldiers killed, some foreign news outlets put the death toll at 60 to 70 security personnel killed.

    • Wikileaks: Media is not ‘controlled by Jews’ but by Saudi Arabia: media loyalties purchased around the world

      They’ve sure paid a lot to portray “Palestinian” terror state as a victim, and to portray President Assad as a villain.

      Buying Silence: How the Saudi Foreign Ministry controls Arab media

      ref: Wikileaks

      On Monday, Saudi Arabia celebrated the beheading of its 100th prisoner this year. The story was nowhere to be seen on Arab media despite the story’s circulation on wire services. Even international media was relatively mute about this milestone compared to what it might have been if it had concerned a different country. How does a story like this go unnoticed?

      Today’s release of the WikiLeaks “Saudi Cables” from the Saudi Ministry of Foreign Affairs show how it’s done.

      The oil-rich Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and its ruling family take a systematic approach to maintaining the country’s positive image on the international stage. Most world governments engage in PR campaigns to fend off criticism and build relations in influential places. Saudi Arabia controls its image by monitoring media and buying loyalties from Australia to Canada and everywhere in between.

      Documents reveal the extensive efforts to monitor and co-opt Arab media, making sure to correct any deviations in regional coverage of Saudi Arabia and Saudi-related matters. Saudi Arabia’s strategy for co-opting Arab media takes two forms, corresponding to the “carrot and stick” approach, referred to in the documents as “neutralisation” and “containment”. The approach is customised depending on the market and the media in question.
      “Contain” and “Neutralise”

      The initial reaction to any negative coverage in the regional media is to “neutralise” it. The term is used frequently in the cables and it pertains to individual journalists and media institutions whose silence and co-operation has been bought. “Neutralised” journalists and media institutions are not expected to praise and defend the Kingdom, only to refrain from publishing news that reflects negatively on the Kingdom, or any criticism of its policies. The “containment” approach is used when a more active propaganda effort is required. Journalists and media institutions relied upon for “containment” are expected not only to sing the Kingdom’s praises, but to lead attacks on any party that dares to air criticisms of the powerful Gulf state.

      One of the ways “neutralisation” and “containment” are ensured is by purchasing hundreds or thousands of subscriptions in targeted publications. These publications are then expected to return the favour by becoming an “asset” in the Kingdom’s propaganda strategy. A document listing the subscriptions that needed renewal by 1 January 2010 details a series of contributory sums meant for two dozen publications in Damascus, Abu Dhabi, Beirut, Kuwait, Amman and Nouakchott. The sums range from $500 to 9,750 Kuwaiti Dinars ($33,000). The Kingdom effectively buys reverse “shares” in the media outlets, where the cash “dividends” flow the opposite way, from the shareholder to the media outlet. In return Saudi Arabia gets political “dividends” – an obliging press.

      An example of these co-optive practices in action can be seen in an exchange between the Saudi Foreign Ministry and its Embassy in Cairo. On 24 November 2011 Egypt’s Arabic-language broadcast station ONTV hosted the Saudi opposition figure Saad al-Faqih, which prompted the Foreign Ministry to task the embassy with inquiring into the channel. The Ministry asked the embassy to find out how “to co-opt it or else we must consider it standing in the line opposed to the Kingdom’s policies“.

      The document reports that the billionaire owner of the station, Naguib Sawiris, did not want to be “opposed to the Kingdom’s policies” and that he scolded the channel director, asking him “never to host al-Faqih again”. He also asked the Ambassador if he’d like to be “a guest on the show”.

      The Saudi Cables are rife with similar examples, some detailing the figures and the methods of payment. These range from small but vital sums of around $2000/year to developing country media outlets – a figure the Guinean News Agency “urgently needs” as “it would solve many problems that the agency is facing” – to millions of dollars, as in the case of Lebanese right-wing television station MTV.
      Confrontation

      The “neutralisation” and “containment” approaches are not the only techniques the Saudi Ministry is willing to employ. In cases where “containment” fails to produce the desired effect, the Kingdom moves on to confrontation. In one example, the Foreign Minister was following a Royal Decree dated 20 January 2010 to remove Iran’s new Arabic-language news network, Al-Alam, from the main Riyadh-based regional communications satellite operator, Arabsat. After the plan failed, Saud Al Faisal sought to “weaken its broadcast signal“.

      The documents show concerns within the Saudi administration over the social upheavals of 2011, which became known in the international media as the “Arab Spring”. The cables note with concern that after the fall of Mubarak, coverage of the upheavals in Egyptian media was “being driven by public opinion instead of driving public opinion”. The Ministry resolved “to give financial support to influential media institutions in Tunisia“, the birthplace of the “Arab Spring”.

      The cables reveal that the government employs a different approach for its own domestic media. There, a wave of the Royal hand is all that is required to adjust the output of state-controlled media. A complaint from former Lebanese Prime Minister and Saudi citizen Saad Hariri concerning articles critical of him in the Saudi-owned Al-Hayat and Asharq Al-Awsat newspapers prompted a directive to “stop these type of articles” from the Foreign Ministry.

      This is a general overview of the Saudi Foreign Ministry’s strategy in dealing with the media. WikiLeaks’ Saudi Cables contain numerous other examples that form an indictment of both the Kingdom and the state of the media globally.

            • True, the CIA glories in the fact that people think they are incompetent, there have been some spectacular failures but on the most part they are pretty good.

              One of the reasons for the Mossads big reputation is that in the beginning they could recurit native speakers from the various nations to send back as intelligence operatives. Another is that being surrounded by enemies sworn to destroy you tends to create good operatives.

  3. Re the tard with the IS flag in Westminster,
    &/7 anniversary comes up on Tuesday, I won’t be on the tube lines then, not that will make much of a differance

    • If I were going for an attack on the 7th the subways would be the last place I would hit, they are going to be the best protected.

    • One of the biggest advantages we have is their desire to make new attacks on the anniversaries of prior attacks, this gives us a massive advantage by telling us the time of greatest danger.

  4. DAILY MAIL – UK – Living here on £50,000 benefits, the hate preacher who inspired Tunisian beach killer: Cleric lives in five-bedroom home with wife and five children after thwarting deportation attempts for 15 years

    Hani al-Sibai is ‘key influencer’ of the Islamic fanatics behind Tunisia attack
    The preacher once described 7/7 terror attacks in 2005 as a ‘great victory’
    Lives with his wife and five children in a £1 million house in West London
    Successive governments have failed to remove him despite worrying links

    A leader of the terror group behind the Tunisian beach massacre is living off benefits in Britain, the Mail can reveal.

    Jihadi preacher Hani al-Sibai – who described the 7/7 terror attacks in London in 2005 as a ‘great victory’ – is one of the ‘key influencers’ of the Islamic fanatics believed to have recruited and trained gunman Seifeddine Rezgui.

    But he is living on £50,000 a year in handouts with his wife and five children in a £1 million house in West London, after using human rights laws to thwart attempts to deport him for more than 15 years.

    Days after the atrocity in Tunisia, the Mail found al-Sibai, 54, strolling in the sunshine outside his home.

    Asked how he could justify milking the welfare state for so much, al-Sibai – who is under investigation suspected of benefit fraud – said: ‘Ask David Cameron, don’t ask me.’

    Last night, there were furious calls to deport al-Sibai, who has also been linked to Islamic State executioner Mohammed Emwazi, known as Jihadi John.

    Keith Vaz, chairman of the home affairs select committee, is writing to Home Secretary Theresa May to demand an explanation as to why al-Sibai is still in the country.

    ‘It is extraordinary that successive governments have been trying but failing to remove someone who has these worrying links,’ he said.
