Daniel Greenfield: Debunking 6 Myths About Anders Breivik

07/26/2011 Leave a comment

To all the leftist liberals who still have difficulty discerning fact from fiction, or who frequently struggle separating reality from fantasy, or who simply prefer to be willingly and continually encumbered by a chronic case of maladroit logic, please refrain from reading any further …

1. Anders Behring Breivik was a Fundamentalist Christian

Breivik described himself as not a religious person and mentions praying only once. His plans leading up to the attacks involved multiple visits to prostitutes. In one section of his manifesto he clarifies what he means by Christian.

Q: Do I have to believe in God or Jesus in order to become a Justiciar Knight?

no, you don’t need to have a personal relationship with God or Jesus to fight for our Christian cultural heritage. It is enough that you are a Christian-agnostic or a Christian-atheist (an atheist who wants to preserve at least the basics of the European Christian cultural legacy

Breivik did call himself a Christian, but meant that in a cultural sense, rather than a theological one. He emphasized that he was not seeking a theocracy, but a secular society. His idea of a Christian Europe had nothing to do with religion.

2. Anders Behring Breivik Hated Muslims

Breivik viewed Muslims as the enemy, but only domestically. He emphasized that; “Knights Templar do not intend to persecute devout Muslims”

And he contemplated collaborating with them on terrorist attacks against Europe. “An alliance with the Jihadists might prove beneficial to both parties… We both share one common goal.” The Caliphate was a useful enemy for his cause.

In Breivik’s own words, this is how such an arrangement would play out …” Read more.

SHOCK: State Department Updates Global Travel Warning … Against Islamic Terrorism

07/26/2011 Leave a comment

But wait!  According to the liberal media, the real threat comes from right-wing Christian conservatives.  Oh boy, I don’t know who’s more dangerous, Islamic fundamentalists who’ve committed more than 17,500 verifiable acts of terrorism since 9/11 in the name of Mohammed, or right-wing Christian conservatives who’ve allegedly committed a minute, tiny fraction by comparison in the name of, well, something Christian? …

“WASHINGTON, July 26 (UPI) — Americans traveling abroad are reminded to be vigilant to the threat of terrorist actions and violence, the U.S. State Department said Tuesday.

The Worldwide Caution updates information issued Jan. 31 on the threat terrorist actions and violence pose to U.S. citizens and interests throughout the world, the department said in a statement.

The State Department said it believes there remains a high potential for anti-American violence since the death of al-Qaida founder Osama bin Laden in May. Current information suggests al-Qaida and affiliated organizations still plot terrorist attacks against U.S. interests in many regions, including Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East, the department said.

The department said U.S. citizens should be aware of potential terrorist attacks on public transportation systems and other tourist infrastructure.” Read more.

Texas Lawmaker Calls for Congressional Probe Into Ban of Christian Prayers at Military Funerals

An update to this story.  I’ll believe Rep. Culberson over the Obama administration any day …

By Todd Starnes – “A Texas lawmaker is calling for a congressional investigation of the Houston National Cemetery after he went undercover and determined that cemetery officials are still preventing Christian prayers at the funerals of military veterans.

‘The Obama administration continues to try to prevent the word ‘God’ from being used at the funerals of our heroes,’ said. Rep. John Culberson (R-Texas).

‘It’s unacceptable and I’m going to put a stop to it as fast as humanly possible,’ Culberson told Fox News Radio. He attended a burial service at the cemetery undercover on July 8, when he says he witnessed volunteer members of the honor guard from the Veterans of Foreign Wars being prohibited from using any references to God.

‘The Obama administration had told the nation and me they were not interfering with the prayer said over the graves of veterans,’ he said. ‘And I went undercover to personally verify that claim.’ VA officials have strongly denied they’ve banned any religious speech – and have offered support for Arleen Ocasio, the cemetery’s director.” Read more.

Afghanistan: Young Boy Reportedly Forced by Taliban to Step on Bomb

07/26/2011 Leave a comment

The hatred and cruelty committed by these ‘wild beasts of the earth’ knows no limits.  It is vile. It is repulsive. It is evil …

Isaiah 13:11, “I will punish the world for its evil, the wicked for their sins. I will put an end to the arrogance of the haughty and will humble the pride of the ruthless.”

By Michael Yon – “Zhari District, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan – Over the past several days there have been news stories here in Afghanistan about the Taliban strangling an 8-year-old boy. The reports say that his father refused to turn over a police vehicle to the enemy, and so they murdered his son…

And so last night I walked to the Headquarters of 4-4CAV here in Zhari District, the most active district in Afghanistan at this time. I asked what was going on tonight. A noncommissioned officer filled me in on the day’s events. We had been in a minor ambush resulting in a slight injury and a damaged MRAP, so I knew about that one. But then he explained about a boy whom he said the Taliban forced to step on an IED just down the road from here. Apparently, according to Afghans, the Taliban may have been testing a new bomb made from a soda bottle. The boy’s name is Jalil, and our people estimate that Jalil is 6 to 8-years-old. Jalil was picking grapes with his brother when the Taliban, according to reporting, told the boy to step on the bomb. It blew off his right leg below the knee, leaving hamburger on the stump, and fractured his femur.” Read more.

‘Spectacular’ Double Meteor Shower This Week

07/26/2011 Leave a comment

By Andrew Fazekas – “A celestial traffic jam may be on tap this week as two meteor showers combine forces to put on a brilliant sky show.

One of the best shooting star events of the year is the annual August Perseid meteor shower.  However this year’s peak, on August 12, happens to coincide with a bright full moon—drastically cutting down the number of meteors visible to the naked eye.

Yet while the main event might be blocked out by the blinding moonlight, the opening act promises to be much better.

This year the lesser known Delta Aquarid meteor shower is expected to peak on Friday night, when the Delta Aquarids’ more productive Perseid cousin is just starting to ramp up.

Together the showers will produce anywhere between 15 and 30 shooting stars per hour under clear, dark skies.

‘While the moon is set to be an unpleasant guest for the Perseid peak, skywatchers are not out of luck as the Delta Aquarids could be one of the best meteor showers of the year,’ said Raminder Singh Samra, astronomer at the H.R. MacMillan Space Centre in Vancouver, Canada.

‘The new moon during the peak of the Delta Aquarids may actually allow for a much more spectacular display.'” Read more.
