Europe Unwilling And Unable To Fight

Admiral Sir Alan West, former First Sea Lord of the Royal Navy, says that it's completely outrageous for any nation to go out and arrest the servicemen of another nation in waters that don't belong to them. However, as Victor Davis Hanson notes at NRO, if the attack was "outrageous," it was apparently not quite outrageous enough for anything to have been done about it yet. The problem lies in the fact that Europe, and the West as a whole, have evolved beyond a need for war in dealing with logical nations. However, Iran is a country so wretched as... ... more

Iran's dirty hands are all over the violence in Iraq and the killing of American troops. Now we learn that Shi'ite militiamen, who melted away from Baghdad when U.S. and Iraqi troops began their security crackdown seven weeks ago, are rolling back into the city with fresh Iranian training: It is not clear whether the radical Shi'ite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr is in control of the newly trained group, which some Iraqis describe as a "secret army" trained and equipped by Iran. U.S. forces are concerned that, despite Shi'ite leaders' assurances that they have pulled their fighters off the streets, uncooperative... ... more

Since their lawsuit affects the security of every freedom-loving American, we are all in a sense - "John Does," and the legislation introduced by Rep.

Taheri and many others believe this event was deliberately orchestrated by Tehran to give it leverage to solve other problems. As Taheri puts it, "when in doubt, take hostages." He notes that Iran has been involved in the taking of at least 1,000 hostages... ... more

One would think that sooner or later we in the West would learn from our mistakes and stop caving in to the Islamists, especially Iran.

Shariah in Minnesota - Or What Do Pelosi, The Muslim American Society, And CAIR Have In Common?

Events in Minnesota suggest a sinister strategy by Muslim groups: By piggy-backing on our civil rights laws, Islamist activists aim to equate airport security with racial bigotry and to move slowly toward a two-tier legal system (edit - democracy and sharia law). Intimidation is a crucial tool. The "flying imams" lawsuit ups the ante by indicating that passengers who alerted airport authorities will be included as defendants. Activists are also perfecting their skills at manipulating the media.

Prof Glees will warn the Association of University Chief Security Officers (Aucso) next month that the disbanded extremist group, al-Muhajiroun, claims to have infiltrated "the main campuses such as Cambridge, Oxford, the London School of Economics and Imperial College". His speech on "radicalism in universities" also states that at its peak before the July 7 bombings in 2005, al-Muhajiroun had a presence at "more than 48 universities and faculties", and that Omar Bakri Mohammed, the... ... more

Iranian General That Defected Was Spy For West

It sounds almost like a spy novel, and maybe too much so. On the other hand, if the Times of London version of the story is true, it makes the mullahs look like bungling fools and the West has indeed got a wealth of much needed information on Iran's terror ties. Brigadier General Ali Reza Asgari, 63, Iran's former deputy defence minister who defected to the West last month, apparently (and I do mean "apparently") had been spying on Iran since 2003 when he supposedly had been recruited on an overseas business trip. This weekend he is understood to be... ... more

True Insanity At S.F. State: Students Facing Charges For 'Desecration of Allah'

School officials at San Francisco University have charged College Republicans at San Francisco State University who stepped on makeshift Hezbollah and Hamas flags, with "desecrating" the name of Allah (The College Republicans had walked on "a banner with the world 'Allah' written in Arabic script"): The trouble began at an Oct. 17 anti-terrorism rally in which the students stepped on butcher paper painted to resemble the flags of the Middle East terrorist organizations Hamas and Hezbollah. The College Republicans say they simply copied the script from an image on the Internet and didn't know it bore the name of Allah... ... more

Secret Network Helped Iranian Defector

Apparently, Gen. Ali Reza Asghari's Feb. 7 disappearance at a hotel in Istanbul days after his wife and other family members left Iran for a purported vacation was neither a kidnapping nor a mystery; it occurred with the help of a well-organized Iranian dissident group and experts say more defectors are on the way as opposition to President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad increases within Iran. And it seems that more are planned:The group is currently negotiating with Western intelligence agencies from a hideout somewhere in Europe for a permanent place of exile, sources said. The United States and Israel, fingered by Iran's... ... more

A New Enemy in the War on Terror

In light of this post over at 'but that's just my opinion', I've decided to repost the following, Originally Posted 3/25/06 The United States has another enemy in the war on terror. It's not Iran, Syria, or even France. It is Russia. A few weeks ago I wrote about some of the evidence about what happened to the WMD's in Iraq (It has more recently become a favorite topic for bloggers), evidence mysteriously missing from the MSM. What startles me more, however, is the accusations that Russia was implicit in the transportation of WMD's from Iraq to both Syria and... ... more

Moderate Muslims Intimidated In Canada

Moderate Muslims continue to be intimidated by conservative Muslims, not just outside the U.S., but also in America. Like the Nazis who 'removed' dissidents from the streets or the Nazi storm troopers who regularly beat their opposition into submission, Islamists intimidate the free world with their brazen protests, riots, Muslim thugs beating and even killing non-Muslims (and moderate Muslims), death threats to web site owners in the free world, and the open and subtle ntimidation of moderate Muslims. In this first video that was aired on the CBC's "The National" on March 6 2007, this report addresses the threats and... ... more

Muslim Websites Target Georgia Motorist for Death

Maybe we'll all (readers and bloggers) get the ball moving and get an investigation moving. The following is a repost of what was received by email from The Jawa Report: Two U.S. based Islamic websties have called on Muslims to kill the driver of a Georgia registered vehicle displaying an offensive bumper sticker.

Missing Iranian General With Knowledge Of Iranian Nuke Secrets May Be In U.S.

If the story about missing Iranian general, Ali Reza Asgari, having defected to the United States and requested asylum here is true, then consider it a major problem for Iran. Asgari supposedly knows sensitive information about Iran's nuclear and military projects which could strongly counter Iran's claims of peaceful intentions for its nuclear program. Asgari, 63, served in the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, and held a senior position in the Guards' branch in Lebanon from the 1990s. One of the Asgari's assignments was to strengthen ties with Hizballah and supervise the transfer of Iranian instructors to Hizballah training camps in Lebanon.... ... more

Egypt Sliding Into The Stone Age

Whisper of Madness has it that Egypt is de-evolving at a momentum faster than the rest of the world can advance, and that a prime example is that Yahia Ragheb Daqruri, Egyptian judge and president of the judges syndicate has released a report stating that women judges are un-Islamic and not in accordance with Sharia law. On what basis you ask? Because it's inappropriate for a women to be, "alone in a room with two or more male judges" deliberating. Right of course! Besides that, even if men could by some means overcome their animalistic nature and not rape a... ... more

Forgive Me If You Think Me Insensitive Senator Obama - But Haven't Blacks Played The 'Victim Card' Long Enough?

From the very day of Obama's Feb. 10 presidential announcement, I've had reservations about his membership in the Afrocentric Trinity United Church of Christ in Chicago and his allegiance to the teachings of his spiritual mentor, the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. (Trinity United more resembles a cult than a church, and clearly embraces things African above things American). Obama's position on the Iraq war and the War on Terror had already soured me on the man, after all, who in his right mind could consider a man for president who attempts to deceive the American public with "bait and... ... more

UNC Student Continues His Jihad, Shouting "Death to Israel" And Threatening Judge

Remember drive-by jihadist Mohammed Taheri-azar? As Daniel Pipes noted back in March 2006: Mr. Taheri-azar represents the ultimate Islamist nightmare: a seemingly well-adjusted Muslim whose religion inspires him, out of the blue, to murder non-Muslims. Mr. Taheri-azar acknowledged planning his jihad for more than two years, or during his university sojourn. It's not hard to imagine how his ideas developed, given the coherence of Islamist ideology, its immense reach (including a Muslim Student Association at UNC), and its resonance among many Muslims.Well, the very same Mr. Taheri-azar was up before a judge to discuss letters he'd written to the local... ... more

This guy is soooo... full of it! When he's pandering for votes he says a threat from Islamothugs is real, but in another breath he theorizes that fighting Iran's proxies in Iraq is strengthening Iran - ignoring the very real and even larger threat (than Hamas to Israel) threat to the entire Middle East of the Islamists winning in Iraq. And how does Obama... ... more

Islam Flourishing Among American Blacks

Imams and experts are saying that Islam is growing fast among African Americans, who are undeterred by increased scrutiny of Muslims in the United States since the September 11 attacks. What was it I said about the easiest mislead and most naive among our electorate? Perhaps "Black Muslims" would find this interesting. And I wonder if they know that the number of Palestinian civilians killed in their relentless conflict with Israel over the last 40 years is less than the average number of Africans killed by Islam each month!... ... more

Whittling Away At Our Existing Order, UK Muslims Continue To Demand Special Attention

Muslim schools in the UK continue to get special treatment while demanding the same from the UK's public schools. Readers may recall that last month, King Fahad Academy, a west London school funded by the Saudi government, was condemned for using text books that described Jews as "pigs". At the same time, the Muslim Council of Britain accused state schools of failing to respect Muslim wishes and called on headmasters to open prayer rooms, introduce single changing cubicles, overhaul sex education and reschedule exams outside Ramadan. Now we are learning that more than half of private Muslim schools have not... ... more

After our post yesterday titled, "There Are 'Good' Reasons For Talks With Iran And Syria?," in which I discussed the views of Dan Riehl, Jules Crittenden, and others views on talking with Iran, these comments by Behrouz Souresrafil appear to offer an interesting follow up: Talks will soon begin between America and the Islamic Republic, first between the ambassadors of these nations, Iraq, Syria, Iran and America in Iraq and later the foreign ministers of these nations. In my view, and forgive me if I am speaking to you hopelessly, the Islamic Republic will build the atomic bomb, Israel will... ... more
