Syria: Rebel Terrorists Threaten Terror If The West Doesn’t Support Their Terrorism

11/10/2012 4 comments

It’s kind of like a meth addict threatening to become a drug user if we don’t give him needles …

By John Glaser – “Gen. Mustafa al-Sheikh, the leader of the Free Syrian Army, warned that if outside powers don’t quickly back the rebel fighters trying to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, the rebels might all turn into terrorists instead.

‘If there’s no quick decision to support us, we will all turn into terrorists,’ he said in an interview with the Daily Telegraph. ‘If you apply the pressure that’s been applied to Syria, it will explode in all directions. Terrorism will grow quickly.’

The US has been facilitating the delivery of weapons to the rebels from Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and Turkey, but has been reluctant to directly give the rebels any lethal aid. Part of the reason is that the so-called leadership of the FSA is hardly recognized by most of the fighters on the ground.

Notably, al-Sheikh’s warning is not very far from reality. US intelligence has recognized for some time now that the great bulk of the rebel fighters are jihadists, many having come from foreign countries, and some even fighting under the banner of al-Qaeda.

While issuing this warning, al-Sheikh is also trying to convince the West to more enthusiastically back the rebels. He claims he has established a command structure and published a manifesto giving lip-service for human rights.

But those efforts to appeal to the US for greater, and more lethal, arms support is ridiculous. Writing a manifesto about the FSA’s supposed commitment to human rights, while at the same time warning that they may just ‘turn into terrorists’ doesn’t exactly fit.

Beyond this, the rebels are known to have committed war crimes, including executing captured Assad-supporters.” Source – AntiWar.com.

Canada: Toronto Islamic School Caught Teaching Anti-Semitic Material Will Not Face Criminal Charges

11/10/2012 2 comments

Criticizing homosexuality or same-sex marriage in Canada can get you charged with a hate crime, but teaching children to hate Jews will not. Up is down, black is white, evil is good, all is right. Makes a lot of sense, doesn’t it? …

Hadith, Tabari 7:97, “The morning after the murder of Ashraf, the Prophet declared, ‘Kill any Jew who falls under your power.’”

Update March 2016: Multicultural Council Member Welcoming Muslim “Refugees” Calls Killing Jews A “Sacred Duty Of Jihad”

reading-the-quran_56c95e7a7b6a8The Algemeiner – “A Toronto Islamic school whose teaching materials disparaged Jews and encouraged boys to keep fit for jihad will not face criminal charges but police did issue a warning and said they had identified passages in school materials that were of concern.

A York Regional Police report outlining the hate crimes investigation of the East End Madrassah said a review of 30 school syllabus books found portions that ‘challenged some of Canada’s core values’ and ‘suggested intolerance,’ even if they were not criminal, this according to an article in the National Post.

The report confirmed some of the school materials came from books published by Iranian foundations, one of which is an alleged front for the Islamic regime. The Iranian-origin passages referred to Jews as ‘crafty’ and ‘treacherous,’ and contrasted Islam with ‘the Jews and the Nazis.’

Canada’s chapter of B’nai B’rith was pragmatic in their response to the news: ‘Of course we can’t be pleased. We believe the criminal code has a role to play, but at this point I understand that they carefully reviewed the material and they determined it doesn’t meet the criminal code provisions, so we can’t be displeased. We need to make sure that our schools and other public institutions aren’t used as vehicle to spread intolerance,’ Anita Bromberg, the organizations National Director of Legal Affairs, told The Algemeiner.

She added: ‘If the result of the police investigation in bringing this public is now to cause it to teach the Muslim educators to take this behind closed doors then we have a bigger problem.'” Read more.

Toronto Mosque Condemns Criticism of Islamic school, ‘Our Teachings Embrace and Celebrate Canadian Values’ – “The mosque that runs the school said Friday it had been exonerated and was disappointed at the ‘rush to judgment and harsh comments’ it faced over the controversy. Its two-page statement did not mention the concerns raised by police. ‘Our teachings embrace and celebrate the Canadian values of tolerance, understanding and harmony,’ Aliraza Rajani, president of the Islamic Shia Ithna Asheri Jamaat mosque.” Read more.

Flashback: Canada: Muslim Cleric Wants To Force All Women In Toronto To Wear Burkas, Head Scarves And Face Veils – “But don’t worry, this enlightened Muslim cleric only wants all non-Muslim women to dress like Muslim women because he cares so much for their safety.  Indeed, nothing shows you care more for the inferior sex than blaming them for being sexually assaulted. Because they’re asking for it, right? Besides, if Muslim men are unable to control sexual temptation, then neither can all non-Muslim men, correct? After all, the prophet of Islam said it, so it has to be true. But here’s an idea: Instead of forcing all non-Muslim women to conform to a Muslim dress code, how about we just force all Muslim men to stay indoors? Wouldn’t women then be much, much safer?” Read more.

What will it be next? Will Muslim cab drivers be permitted to refuse someone who looks like or sounds like they could be Jewish? Or someone with an ‘offensive tattoo’? Or someone who wears a cross? Or a woman with alluring eyes who might cause them to sin?” Read more.

Seismic Risk In Eastern U.S. May Be Higher Than Previously Thought

11/10/2012 Leave a comment

By Sid Perkins and Nature Magazine via Scientific American – “The surprise magnitude-5.8 earthquake that stuck central Virginia and rattled cities up and down the US East Coast last year was a record-breaker in more ways than one. Not only was it felt by more Americans than any previous tremor, it triggered landslides over a wider area than any other recorded quake anywhere in the world, scientists say. A detailed analysis of ground motions triggered by the event also indicates that Washington DC and other affected population centers could be at a higher risk of major ground movement than previously recognized.

Centered roughly 130 kilometers south-southwest of the US capital, near the town of Mineral, Virginia, the 23 August 2011 quake was the strongest to strike the eastern United States since 1897, Susan Hough, a seismologist with the US Geological Survey (USGS) in Pasadena, California, reported this week at the Geological Society of America’s annual meeting in Charlotte, North Carolina. The quake was felt from Florida to southeastern Canada and as far west as Wisconsin, she noted. By some estimates, as much as one-third of the US population was shaken by it.

Because of a variety of factors, including the age, type, temperature and density of the rocks underlying the eastern United States, seismic waves are transmitted more efficiently there than in the western states. The area shaken by the magnitude-5.8 quake was approximately the same size as that rocked by a much larger magnitude-7.2 tremor that struck Baja California in April 2010, Hough noted.

Quake damage
The Virginia quake was strong enough to do serious damage to some of Washington’s landmark buildings. The National Cathedral suffered about US$20 million in structural damage, including fallen statues and cracked gargoyles. At the Washington Monument, much of the damage was confined to the pyramid-shaped top of the 169-meter-tall obelisk. Analyses of seismic data gathered at an instrument near the monument suggest that accelerations due to ground motions did not exceed 0.07g. That would normally not be expected to cause damage, but Donald Wells, an engineering geologist at AMEC, a consulting firm in Oakland, California, says his team’s models suggest that passing seismic waves vibrated the tall, slim monument like a tuning fork.

Other data from the Virginia earthquake suggest that US cities on the eastern seaboard could be more affected by future earthquakes of a given size than previously thought.” Read more.

Massive Explosion Seen On The Far Side Of The Sun, Active Blast Site Just Days Away From Rotating Toward Earth

Space Weather – “As solar activity picks up on the Earthside of the sun, the farside of the sun is coming alive, too. During the early hours of Nov. 9th, a magnetic filament located behind the sun’s southeastern limb erupted, hurling a bright coronal mass ejection (CME) into space: This explosion was not geoeffective, but future explosions might be. The blast site, still potent, is just days away from rotating onto the Earthside of the sun.” Source – The Extinction Protocol.

Belgium: Brussels Bows Down To Allah, Bans ‘Offensive’ Christmas Tree To Avoid Offending Muslims

11/10/2012 6 comments

What is truly offensive here are Western leaders who continually placate to the religious whims of those who worship a false demonic god …

1 Timothy 4:1, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons …”

“Government officials in Brussels, Belgium banned Wednesday a popular Christmas tree exhibit out of concerns that the local Muslim population found it ‘offensive.’

An ‘electronic winter tree,’ will take the place of the traditional Christmas Tree and Nativity scene at the city center of Grand Place, reports Brussels News.

The electronic sculpture will stand 25 meters (82 feet) tall and consists of a set of television screens, reports Brussels Expat. ‘During the daytime you can climb to the top of the tree where you will be able to enjoy a panoramic view of the city,’ the website explains. ‘As soon as it becomes dark the tree turns into a spectacle of light and sound. Every ten minutes an amazing show will unfold.’

City councilwoman Bianca Debaets believes a ‘misplaced argument’ over religious sensitivities has moved Brussels to put up the light sculpture. She points to the fact that it display not be referred to ‘Christmas’ in any way to make her point.

‘I suspect that the reference to the Christian religion was the decisive factor’ in replacing the tree, she told reporters. ‘For a lot of people who are not Christians, the tree there is offensive to them.’

Many cities in Belgium have thriving Muslim populations. A 2008 study showed Muslims make up 25.5-percent of the population of Brussels, 3.9-percent of Flanders, and 4.0-percent of Wallonia.” Read more.

Belgium: Muslim Politicians Win Municipal Elections In Brussels, Vow To Turn Belgium Into Islamic State Ruled By Sharia Law – “Two Muslim politicians, who just won municipal elections in Belgium’s capital, Brussels, on October 14, have vowed to implement Islamic Sharia law in Belgium. The two candidates, Lhoucine Aït Jeddig and Redouane Ahrouch, both from the fledgling Islam Party, won seats in two heavily Islamized municipalities of Brussels, Molenbeek-Saint-Jean and Anderlecht, respectively.” Read more.

Flashback: ‘De-Christianization’: European Muslims Turn Churches Into Mosques, ‘We’re Here To Stay … Convert To Islam, And You Will Find Peace’ – “Bouchra Ismaili, a Rotterdam city councilman: ‘Listen up, crazy freaks, we’re here to stay. You’re the foreigners here, with Allah on my side I’m not afraid of anything. Take my advice: convert to Islam, and you will find peace’. The Middle East is full of churches turned into Islamic sites … But unlike the Middle East, where non-Muslim sites were razed or violently converted to Islam, in Europe this process is voluntary.” Read more.
