Milestone: Acts Of Islamic Terror In The Name Of Allah ‘The Magnificent, The Merciful’ Surpasses 20,000 Since 9/11

But let’s not get ahead of ourselves. The real problem that the world faces today is right-wing Islamophobes. Like the Tea Party. And Christians. Even one of the greatest thinkers of our modern era, Rosie O’Donnell, has concluded as much …

When they can, they will.

By BOB UNRUH – “A little less than every five hours, somewhere around the world a Muslim is carrying out a fatal jihadist attack.

These are not the regular beatings and vandalism against Christians, Hindus and Buddhists but religion-oriented attacks in which someone dies at the hand of a member of the ‘religion of peace.’

website called ‘The Religion of Peace’ has listed more than 20,000 such fatal attacks since Sept. 11, 2001.

As of today, the total was 20,022. The 20,000th came a few days ago when a Jewish woman was cut in pieces in Iran by religious radicals ‘intent on expanding a mosque.’

Some 1,800 deadly Muslim terror attacks happen each year, amounting to about 150 a month and five a day.

The purpose of the website, according to operator Glen Roberts, a pseudonym, is to put the level of violence being inflicted by Muslims in perspective.

‘I started watching [the Council on American-Islamic Relations] in the months after 9/11,’ said Roberts, ‘and I was astonished by the self-absorption. Each day people are maimed and killed explicitly in the name of Islam while this organization complains about headscarves and hurt feelings.

‘I thought,’ he said, ‘that maybe if I started documenting the violence, it would Read more…

From Bad To Worse: Syria Combining Chemicals For Sarin Nerve Gas

12/03/2012 1 comment

If Assad decides to use chemical weapons (which appears increasingly likely), will he decide to use them upon the rebels who are all but certain to soon topple his regime? Will he opt to use them against Israel as a last “hurrah” before fleeing in order to invoke a devastating Israeli response upon the rebel’s grand prize of Damascus? Both? … Elad Benari, INN – “Engineers working for President Bashar Al-Assad’s regime in Syria have begun combining the two chemical precursors needed to weaponize sarin gas, an American official with knowledge of the situation told’s Danger Room on Monday.

International observers are now more worried than they’ve even been that the Damascus government could use its nerve agent stockpile to slaughter its own people, the report said.

The U.S. doesn’t know why the Syrian military made the move, which began in the middle of last week and is taking place in central Syria, nor are they sure why the Assad government is transferring some weapons to different locations within the country, as the New York Times reported on Monday.

‘Physically, they’ve gotten to the point where they can load it up on a plane and drop it,’ the official told

Sarin gas has two main chemical components: isopropanol, popularly known as rubbing alcohol, and methylphosphonyl difluoride. The Assad government has more than 500 metric tons of these precursors, which it ordinarily stores separately, in so-called ‘binary’ form, in order to prevent an accidental release of nerve gas.

Last week, reported, that changed. The Syrian military began combining some of the binaries. ‘They didn’t do it on the whole arsenal, just a modest quantity,’ the official said. ‘We’re not sure what’s the intent.’

Back in July, the Assad regime publicly warned that it might use its chemical weapons to stop ‘external’ forces from interfering in Syria’s bloody civil war. The announcement sparked a panic in the intelligence services of the U.S. and its allies, which stepped up their efforts to block shipments of precursors for those weapons from entering the country.

‘This is a more serious moment than July,’ the official said.” Read more.

Flashback: Syria’s FM Says Israel is Leading ‘The Plot to Bring Down Assad’ – “Syria’s foreign minister on Sunday blamed Israel for the uprising against President Bashar Assad’s regime. ‘The Zionist regime is at the forefront of the plot to bring down the Syrian government and to destabilize the country,’ said Walid Muallem, speaking at a joint press conference in Tehran on Sunday afternoon with Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi. Israel’s stance on Syria is proof of an international plot against Assad’s regime, Salehi added. Apart from Israel, Muallem accused Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar of conspiring against Syrians.” Read more.

An Obama Nation: Another CEO Warns Obamacare Will Be ‘Very Costly’ For Businesses, ‘They’ll Be In For A Very Expensive Situation’

And more businesses, in an effort to remain competitive and profitable, will likely do what a large number of businesses are already doing right now instead of passing the cost on to the customer: reducing employee work hours to under 30-hours per week to avoid Obamacare altogether … Matthew Balan, NewsBusters – “On Monday’s CBS This Morning, Cheesecake Factory CEO David Overton spotlighted the looming economic impact of Obamacare’s implementation, especially on small enterprises: ‘For those businesses that don’t cover their employees, they’ll be in for a very expensive situation.’ Overton also warned that the cost of the law would be passed on to customers.

Anchor Norah O’Donnell raised the issue of the still-controversial health care law: ‘One of the things that’s going to change, of course, in the new year is ObamaCare, or the Affordable Care Act. How do you implement that at Cheesecake Factory, and how will you pay for health care for all of your employees?’ (audio clips available here …)

The restaurant chain executive pointed out that, unlike many businesses, The Cheesecake Factory is ‘already…paying a great deal in health care. So, we’re not sure how much more it will be – or how much less – or what exactly we’ll do. So, for us, it won’t be as bad as it will be for others, which it will be very costly.’

O’Donnell followed up by asking about the possibility increased prices for customers: ‘When you say it will be very costly, it will be passed on to who – the customers?‘ Overton confirmed that this would be the case: ‘Well, I believe most people will have to do that or cheapen their product.’

It’s surprising that the liberal morning newscast would bring on a critic of ObamaCare. The decision could be explained by anchor Charlie Rose mentioning ex-Al Gore adviser Dr. Atul Gawande’s compliment of The Cheesecake Factory in a recent article in The New Yorker.” Read more.

D’Oh! Turkish Gov’t Fines ‘The Simpsons’ For Blasphemy After ‘God’ Is ‘Represented In Human Form’ During Episode

12/03/2012 1 comment

Makes me wonder who they’ll charge with “blasphemy” when Jesus returns to defend those horrible Jews and Christians

ANSAMed – “ANKARA – Just about everything that could be said and written about the super-popular cartoon ‘The Simpsons’ had been, except that it was blasphemous. Now even that ‘milestone’ has been reached, thanks to the watchdogs of Turkey’s television stations under the Islamic-leaning government of Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan. According to the newspaper Hurriyet, Ankara’s Council of Radio and Television (RTUK) has handed down a TRY 52,951 fine (about 23,000 euros) to the private broadcaster CNBC-E for having broadcast an episode of the cartoon in which ‘God is mocked’. In the episode, God goes so far as to offer coffee to the devil. In the eyes of RTUK, this ‘can be considered an insult’ of a blasphemous nature, and the cartoon was held to encourage young people ‘to drink alcohol during New Year’s celebrations in New York City’. What’s more, ‘one of the characters insults the religious beliefs of another to induce him to commit murder’, ‘the Bible is burnt in public’ and ‘God and the devil are represented in human form’. ‘In a country in which the head of the government thinks that a TV series must be historical documentation, it is entirely normal that the RTUK fails to understand the jokes in a cartoon,’ said Hurriyet op-ed writer Mehmet Yilmaz. Last week Erdogan lashed out at the popular Turkish television series Suleiman the Magnificent, which boasts 150 million viewers in the Middle East and the Balkans, threatening to order that the judges stand trial over its focus on sex and love in the harem of the important sultan, instead of concentrating on his territorial conquests. In the eyes of the secular opposition, the prime minister – who has been in the position for 10 years – has a ‘hidden agenda’ to re-Islamicise the country, and wants to dilute the legacy left by the founder of modern Turkey and ‘father of the country’ Mustafa Kemal Ataturk.

Erdogan has lifted the ban established by Ataturk on the Islamic headscarf in universities, builds mosques everywhere (one slated to be built in Istanbul will be ‘enormous’ and will have to be ‘able to be seen from every corner of the vast city on the banks of the Bosporus), and is considering bringing back the death penalty, since according to Islamic tradition only families and not the society can pardon a murderer. Yilmaz wrote today that ‘I am curious to see what the screenwriters will do when that find out that in a country called ‘Turkey’ their irony is punished with a fine. Perhaps they’ll put a RTUK inspector next to the evangelist Flanders? Or perhaps between Homer’s house and that of Flanders they’ll put the house of a God-fearing Muslim, ‘Almond Mustache?’. In Turkey religious Muslims shaved their mustaches around the lips in the manner of Erdogan, in contrast with traditionally ‘Turkish’ mustaches. The population call this type of mustache, which translates as ‘Almond Mustache’.” Source – ANSAMed.

Hamas Terror Leader Demands US And EU Remove His Terror Group From List Of Terror Organizations

12/03/2012 1 comment

A man who praised Osama Bin Laden and condemned America for his death is now demanding that the very group which he presides over — a maniacal, bloodthirsty gang of savages who time rocket launches to coincide with innocent Israeli schoolchildren walking home from school, who believe that killing Jews is a way to worship Allah, who have fallen decapitated head-over-heels in love with death, who praise and promote suicide bombings and all forms of jihad, who use civilians as human shields and desire nothing more than to finish the job that Hitler started — should no longer be identified as a terror organization. If that isn’t terrorism, then I don’t know what is …

Ahmadinejad and Haniyeh: Brothers of Peace

By KHALED ABU TOAMEH – “‘The time has come for the US and EU to remove Hamas from the list of designated terrorist organizations,’ Hamas Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh said Sunday.

Haniyeh’s appeal came during a meeting in Gaza City with a visiting European mission in solidarity with the Palestinians.

‘Hamas and the Palestinian groups are national liberation movements that are defending themselves against Israeli aggression on our people,’ Haniyeh told the delegation.

He also called for prosecuting Israeli leaders ‘for their ongoing crimes against our people, especially the last eight-day aggression [in the Gaza Strip].’

Haniyeh complained that the UN-sponsored investigative report into Operation Cast Lead, which was prepared by South African judge Richard Goldstone, ‘had been shelved by some countries that help the occupation.’

The Hamas leader said that had the report been ‘activated,’ Israeli leaders would have been prosecuted for war crimes.” Source – The Jerusalem Post.

Flashback: Gaza and the West Bank: 31 Opportunities for Statehood Squandered in Favour of Genocide – “There is an eerie déjà vu about an unmistakable and oft-repeated process in the Arab–Israel conflict. The process started in 1937 and has repeated itself with minor variations many times over the subsequent 74 years. The process is as follows: Arabs go to war with Israel, promising Israel’s destruction and the annihilation of its Jews. Israel wins the war and offers peace. Arab leaders reject Israel’s peace offer, renew their promises of destruction and annihilation; and after a while they go to war again, and lose again, and Israel again offers peace. Repeat this process 31 times and you have the history of the Arab-Israel conflict in a nutshell.” Read more.
