Mysterious Tortilla Chip-Shaped UFO is Spotted Again

03/29/2012 8 comments

Don’t be surprised if al-Shabaab and other Islamist organizations soon issue a fatwa against the forbidden three-sided “Dudley Dorito.” Heaven forbid if a fellow Muslim should ever be reminded that another faith exists outside of Islam …

“The mysterious ‘Dudley Dorito’ UFO has been spotted for the fourth time in five years flying through a cloudless sky over woodland in Yorkshire.

The object, which looks like an extra-terrestrial tortilla chip, was captured by an amateur cameraman who posted the footage on YouTube.

He can be heard saying ‘I don’t know what that is’ as the triangular aircraft glides silently across the frame above a forest in the north of England.

The UFO was dubbed the Dudley Dorito after its first sighting over the Midlands in 2007 but it is unclear whether the YouTube footage is real or a hoax.

Eye-witnesses first saw the black triangle hovering over Halesowen and they reported the close encounter to UFORM, a local group of UFO-spotters.

Then in 2010 David Allan from Sutton Coldfield reported seeing a triangular object four or five times bigger than an aeroplane in the skies on Bonfire Night.

A few weeks after that 21-year-old quality inspector Minuesh Mistry saw the Dudley Dorito hovering above his home in Tipton in the West Midlands.” Read more.

Video: Gigantic Solar Tornado Is 5 Times the Size of Earth

03/29/2012 Leave a comment

By Adam Mann – “This enormous tornado erupting from the surface of the sun is big enough to swallow the Earth. In fact, it could swallow five Earths.

Discovered using NASA’s Solar Dynamic Observatory satellite, this colossal twisting mass is made up of superheated gas at a temperature of between 90,000 and 3.6 million degrees Fahrenheit.

Over the course of three hours, this behemoth reached up from the sun’s surface to a height of 125,000 miles, or roughly half the distance between the Earth and the moon. The hot gases were whipped up to nearly 186,000 miles per hour. In comparison, the wind speed of terrestrial tornadoes generally reaches a paltry 100 miles per hour.

Scientists have previously seen smaller solar tornadoes with other sun-observing satellites but this one — spotted in September 2011 — is thought to be the first one ever filmed (left). Since then, researchers have seen at least one more solar tornado, an Earth-sized twister seen in the video below.” Read more.

Japan: Probe Finds High Radiation Levels at Fukushima Plant, Damage So Severe That New Technology Needed to Decommission Plant

03/29/2012 Leave a comment

“Tokyo:  One of Japan’s crippled nuclear reactors still has fatally high radiation levels and much less water to cool it than officials had estimated, according to an internal examination that renews doubts about the plant’s stability.

A tool equipped with a tiny video camera, a thermometer, a dosimeter and a water gauge was used to assess damage inside the No. 2 reactor’s containment chamber for the second time since the tsunami swept into the Fukushima Dai-ichi plant a year ago.

The data collected Tuesday showed the damage from the disaster is so severe, the plant operator will have to develop special equipment and technology to tolerate the harsh environment and decommission the plant, a process expected to last decades.

The other two reactors that had meltdowns could be in even worse shape. The No. 2 reactor is the only one officials have been able to closely examine so far.

Tuesday’s examination with an industrial endoscope detected radiation levels up to 10 times the fatal dose inside the chamber. Plant officials previously said more than half of the melted fuel has breached the core and dropped to the floor of the primary containment vessel, some of it splashing against the wall or the floor.

Particles from melted fuel have probably sent radiation levels up to a dangerously high 70 sieverts per hour inside the container, said Junichi Matsumoto, spokesman for Tokyo Electric Power Co. The figure far exceeds the highest level previously detected, 10 sieverts per hour, which was detected around an exhaust duct shared by No. 1 and 2 units last year.” Read more.

Radiation levels at Fukushima can kill in minutes – “A lethal level of radiation has been detected inside one of the reactors at the Fukushima nuclear power plant, throwing fresh doubts over the operator’s claims that the disabled complex is under control. Engineers for Tokyo Electric Power Co (Tepco) say readings of airborne radiation inside the containment vessel of Reactor 2 showed nearly 73 sieverts per hour this week, the highest since the crisis began following the earthquake and tsunami on 11 March last year. Exposure to radiation at that level is deadly within minutes, according to Japan’s public broadcaster, NHK.” Read more.

‘Beat By Hand or Stick': Islamic Marriage Guide Teaches Husbands How To Control Their Wives

03/29/2012 Leave a comment

If the president of the Islamic Society of Toronto condemns the Islamic “marriage guide” by saying that it “should never have entered Canada”, then what about the Qur’an and Hadith, the two “holy” Muslim books upon which the Islamic “marriage guide” is based? …

Qur’an Sura 4:34b, “… those [women] on whose part you fear desertion, admonish them, and leave them alone in the sleeping-places and beat them; then if they obey you, do not seek a way against them; surely Allah is High, Great.”

Qur’an Sura 38:44, “And take in your hand a green branch and beat her with it, and do not break your oath …”

Hadith – Abu Dawud, 2142, “The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: A man will not be asked as to why he beat his wife.”

Flowers after a beating must make everything ok

By Madeleine Morgenstern – “A bookstore in Canada has sold out of an Islamic marriage guide that instructs Muslim men on how to beat their wives, according to the Toronto Sun.

Among the advice dispensed in ‘A Gift for the Muslim Couple’ is to ‘beat by hand or stick’ and ‘pull [her] by the ears.’ The husband may also withhold money to exert control, though should ‘refrain from beating her excessively.’

The 160-page book’s description says it ‘deals with the subject of marriage and after marriage relationship, as well as the various pitfalls of marriage, causes of breakdown and their causes.’ It was being sold at Islamic Books and Souvenirs in Toronto. The store’s manager told the Toronto Sun it had been sold out for some time. The owner refused to comment to the newspaper.

‘[I]t might be necessary to restrain her with strength or even to threaten her,’ writes author Hazrat Maulana Ashraf Ali Thanvi, described as a ‘prolific writer on almost every topic of Islamic learning.’

The book lists the husband’s supposed rights, which say the wife is unable to leave ‘his house without his permission,’ and that she must ‘fulfill his desires’ and ‘not allow herself to be untidy…but should beautify herself for him.’

Thanvi also writes that ‘the husband should treat the wife with kindness and love, even if she tends to be stupid and slow Read more…

Al Qaeda’s Network in Iran

Ahmad Wali Siddiqui

Ahmad Wali Siddiqui

BY BENJAMIN WEINTHAL AND THOMAS JOSCELYN – “An al Qaeda cell slated to take part in one of the final plots ordered by Osama bin Laden made use of an Iran-based terror network that, according to the Obama administration, operates ‘under an agreement between al Qaeda and the Iranian government.’ That revelation has emerged from legal proceedings in Germany, including the trial of Ahmad Wali Siddiqui, an al Qaeda recruit who took the stand for the first time last week in Koblenz.

We observed two days of Siddiqui’s testimony. Thus far, prosecutors have allowed the gregarious defendant to do most of the talking. Cleanshaven, he has sought to present a sharply different demeanor than the one he displayed as a bearded jihadist in propaganda films shown to the court. Still, his disturbing narrative provided an extraordinary window into the inner workings of al Qaeda and allied organizations.

The alleged terror recruit, with dual German and Afghan citizenship, has discussed the time he and his fellow plotters spent at the same mosque attended by al Qaeda’s 9/11 Hamburg cell, as well as his own transformation into a violent jihadist. ‘We wanted to fight .  .  . against Americans,’ Siddiqui told the court. Wiretapped conversations played by prosecutors have provided additional insight into Siddiqui’s extremist worldview. During one telephone call to his mother he explained the difference between living in the West and living, as he was then, among the believers: ‘Life in Germany is not good. You live with gays, lesbians, and Jews. Islam rules here.’

Siddiqui initially joined the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), a terrorist organization closely allied with al Qaeda, in northern Pakistan. He quickly migrated to al Qaeda itself.

According to the indictment, senior terrorists decided to send Siddiqui back to Germany to take part in a potentially devastating attack intended ‘to weaken Europe’s economy.’ In the fall of 2010, Western intelligence officials learned that Osama bin Laden had ordered attacks in several cities that were supposed to mirror the November 2008 siege of Mumbai. After Siddiqui was captured in Afghanistan, he revealed the nascent plot.” Read more.

Revelation 6:8, “And I saw, and behold, a pale horse, and its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him; and they were given power over a fourth of the earth, to kill with sword and with famine and with pestilence and by wild beasts of the earth.”

“(AGI) Abuja – Nigeria has warned of a possible famine in the country, and especially in the North-East. The alert was given by the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA), the country’s equivalent of Italy’s Disaster Relief Agency, in its 2012 ‘Report on Boko Haram Insurgency and Disasters in the North East’. ‘Nigeria may face famine by the end of this year, because most of the small-scale farmers and big-time farmers in the north are threatened by the Boko Haram attacks’, the report reads referring to the Islamist militant group whose attacks have left at least 1,200 people dead since 2009. According to NEMA, over the past three years ‘more than 65% of such farmers have already migrated to the southern parts of Nigeria, fearing that the insecurity to both lives and property, including their farmlands and livestock’. Productions of rice, beans, corn and onions have been the worst hit, but fishing in the Lake Chad area, one of the few options local populations have to integrate and vary their diet, was also affected. On the occasion of the presentation of this report, NEMA senior officials said they had been urged by Nigerian security forces to prepare, a humanitarian plan, working in coordination with the United Nations, in order not to be caught off-guard if the forecast turns out to be accurate.” Source – AGI.

Fear: BBC Refuses to Screen Play About Islamic Threat to Freedom of Speech

03/29/2012 Leave a comment

In Europe we are now beginning to witness a new wave of Islamic terror, one that doesn’t involve just blades, bombs and bullets. Rather, this new wave of Islamic terror is one that involves little more than the beleaguered mind of the willingly subservient, stifling the already atrophied mind of the willingly ignorant …

By Tim Walker – “Although the BBC was willing to disregard protests from Christians who considered its decision to broadcast Jerry Springer: The Opera as an affront, Mark Thompson, its outgoing director-general, is more wary of giving airtime to Can We Talk About This?, the National Theatre’s examination of how Islam is curtailing freedom of speech.

Lloyd Newson, the director of the DV8 physical theatre company which staged the new work, challenged Thompson to screen his production during a platform discussion at the theatre.

He pointed out that Jerry Springer: The Opera was a lot more controversial because it was a ‘satire’, whereas his work, consisting of a series of comments and factual statements set to dance, is ‘a factual piece’.

Thompson’s spokesman tells me: ‘We are currently working with the National on various ideas. There are currently no plans to broadcast Can We Talk About This?, but this is not due to the play’s content or themes.'” Read more.

Flashback: We’ll Mock Jesus But Not Mohammed, Says BBC Boss – “The head of the BBC, Mark Thompson, has admitted that the broadcaster would never mock Mohammed like it mocks Jesus… He made the remarks in an interview for a research project at the University of Oxford. Mr Thompson said: ‘The point is that for a Muslim, a depiction, particularly a comic or demeaning depiction, of the Prophet Mohammed might have the emotional force of a piece of grotesque child pornography.’ … Mr Sissons, whose memoirs were serialised in the Daily Mail, said: ‘Islam must not be offended at any price, although Christians are fair game because they do nothing about it if they are offended.'” Read more.
