Said The Spyder To The Fly

As we learn that U.S. officials have found smoking-gun evidence of Iranian support for terrorists in Iraq - brand-new weapons fresh from Iranian factories, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has sent a letter to the American people, fresh from the lie and deceit factory of Iran. Ole Mahmoud brings new meaning to the Shi'ite concept of al-taqiyya - lie, cheat, and decieve to gain advantage over one's enemies to further Allah's cause and the rule of the world by Islam, and trying to lure the American public into a nuclear trap, like a radioactive spider to a fly. And speaking of spiders, Jules... ... more

'Heroic Resistance' Disembowels Afghan Man for Daring to Educate Girls

During an enjoyable telephone discussion yesterday with our good friend Drima at The Sudanese Thinker (his undisclosed secure location is in Malaysia), I learned about "thabet" at eteraz.org, one of the many Muslims that speaking out from their keyboards against radical Islamists. Today, thabet has a post up saying, "Step by step, the thugs and brutes, who have emptied jihad of its moral doctrines, and who call themselves 'defenders of Islam', are exposed for the brutal, vicious, evil murderers they are": The gunmen came at night to drag Mohammed Halim away from his home, in front of his crying children... ... more

The artwork does a good job of depicting Iran's sponsorship and direction of terrorism throughout the ME, and elsewhere, while RoxieAmerica's commentary points to the Islamic Republic of Iran's extensive history of political assassinations, both inside and outside the borders of Iran.... ... more

'Hi, my name is Ahmed and I want to be a suicide bomber'

It's hard to believe that these thoughts come from a supposedly rational, intelligent, human being.

This suicide-seeking killer says that he and others like him are neither naive, bad from birth, nor brainwashed, but simply want to follow what they are demanded in the Quran to do because if we do not do so we will be... ... more

Suthers' "Arabian Nights" Accomplishes Little, Trip Meant To Justify US Justice System

Could AG John Suthers' recent trip to Saudi Arabia, to defend the fair conviction of Homaidan Al-Turki, be politically costly? Either way, his trip amounted to little more than an unpersuasive waste of money (Federal funds and King Abdullah footed the cost) on "relationship building" that did little to change minds here or there, and ultimately failed to rouse the Saudi kingdom from its 7th century mindset (video): Attorney General John Suthers returned from Saudi Arabia this weekend following a 3-day trip to discuss the trial of a man convicted by a Colorado court.

The GOP appears to be under the delusion that the election was all about Iraq - it wasn't.

Unfortunately, he's right:... When President Bush named three nations in his Axis of Evil speech, he never intended to attack all three. The idea was to effect regime change in Iraq and to intimidate Iran and North Korea into compliance. The leaders of Iran were placed in a quandary, and initially they kept a low profile. They continued supplying Hezbollah with arms but otherwise avoided... ... more
