  • Mullahs host Jew-haters in Iran

    Persian Journal ^ | Dec 10, 2006
    Mullahs on Monday will open an international conference to examine the veracity of the Nazi Holocaust against the Jews, which Iran's arab-parast President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has labeled a "myth." "For 60 years talking about the Holocaust was a crime in the West but now there is a serious debate about the Holocaust in the media and also in political and popular meetings," Ahmadinejad was quoted as saying on state-run TV on Saturday. Iran's arab regime leader insists that the mass slaughter of six million Jews by Germany's Nazi regime is nothing more than a story contrived by Jews and Western...

    CAIRO, Egypt - An American thought to be an al-Qaida activist appeared in a videotape with the terror group's deputy leader Saturday and called on his countrymen to convert to Islam and for U.S. soldiers to switch sides in the Iraq and Afghan wars. The 48-minute video, posted on an Islamic militant Web site, had footage of al-Qaida's No. 2 leader, Ayman al-Zawahri, and of Adam Yehiye Gadahn, a 28-year-old American who the FBI believes attended al-Qaida training camps in Pakistan and served as an al-Qaida translator. It was the second time Gadahn appeared in the same video with al-Zawahri....

    I have never been a big fan of Kofi Annan. He has presided over a UN that is pro-terror, Anti-Israel, Anti-American and (if that is not enough) has taken bribes via the Oil for Food Scandal. It has been puzzling to understand why Annan’s UN is so morally corrupt and partial to terrorists, That is, until today when studying the Torah parsha Shoftim, and I read these words: You shall not judge unfairly: you shall show no partiality; you shall not take bribes, for bribes blind the eyes of the discerning and upset the plea of the just.

The Catholic Church got in gear and beat it back, but it took a long, long time. All the time they're trying to talk to them. All the while they're trying to negotiate. All the while they're trying to come to a mutual understanding. It's dangerous because these are people that genuinely want to wipe us out, and there's a significant portion of our population that does not...

Just what is behind that country’s consistently anti-freedom, anti-American acts in the Middle East, in East Asia, and even in Latin America? And when is it well beyond time for the United States and its allies to take action against a founding member of the Axis of Evil? Consider Iran. Iran orchestrated the Hezbollah-Israel war as its latest well-timed offensive act using the radical Shia organization it spawned almost 25 years ago. Commencing as it did on...

    Young mother among 11 charged in relation to 'airline plot' :: latest A young mother of an eight-month-old baby and a 17-year-old youth were among 11 people charged in Britain tonight in connection with the alleged airliner bomb plot. Scotland Yard’s terror chief also revealed dramatic details of the massive investigation, including confirmation that officers had uncovered bomb-making equipment. Charges against the 17-year-old male, who cannot be named for legal reasons, alleged he had a book on bombs, suicide notes and the wills of people prepared to commit acts of terror.

August 21, 2006 Shortly after British authorities announced that they had foiled a plot to bomb transcontinental flights, President Bush called it a "stark reminder" that the United States is "at war with Islamic fascists." The president's comments triggered a series of responses. The Saudi government rejected even the possibility of Islamic fascism. A spokesman for King Abdullah said that "what Islam is being charged with today, such as fascism, is primarily the result of Western cultural heritage." Closer to home, American liberals, of course, called it politically incorrect to say this. The Council...

In his position with Syria’s General Intelligence Directorate, Major General Hisham Ikhtiyar contributed to Syria’s policies in Lebanon and provided support for Hezbollah, the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC), and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ), the Treasury says.

One is the imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, the other premier of the Flemish region of Belgium.

    BY ROGER SCRUTON Sunday, August 20, 2006 12:01 a.m. EDT The term "Islamofascism" was introduced by the French writer Maxine Rodinson (1915-2004) to describe the Iranian Revolution of 1978. Rodinson was a Marxist, who described as "fascist" any movement of which he disapproved. But we should be grateful to him for coining a word that enables people on the left to denounce our common enemy. After all, other French leftists--Michel Foucault, for example--had welcomed the revolution as an amusing threat to Western interests. It is only now that people on the left can acknowledge that they are just as much...

    While I was on a visit to Toronto recently, police arrested 17 men, the oldest of them 43 but most much younger, on charges of plotting a terrorist attack. They wished, apparently, to blow up the parliament in Ottawa and publicly behead the prime minister. Cops caught them in the process of buying three times as much material for explosives as Timothy McVeigh used in the Oklahoma City bombing. Reporting the arrests, the New York Times called the men “South Asians”—though one of them was an Egyptian, two were Somali, and most had been born in Canada—thus concealing by an...

    Pakistan has ordered over 400 members of banned terrorist groups to be put on a watchlist and has proceeded to detain them. This comes as international pressure rises on Islamabad after the role of Pakistan based terrorists and organizations becomes evident in the recent London terror incident. The Inter-Provincial Coordination Committee (IPCC), which met in Islamabad on Saturday, has put 400 'alleged extremists' on its watchlist. They would be proceeded against under the Anti-Terrorist Act and detained for a year. However, their cases would be reviewed every three months, local daily The News quoted officials as saying.

    In April 2006, officials from the Intelligence Bureau and RAW, the pillars of India's security apparatus, held several meetings to dissect the latest dictats from Al Qaeda's Osama bin Laden. Two words that Laden mentioned in his short message had India's intelligence community worried. "Unlike his earlier pronouncements which were primarily targeted at the West, Laden emphasised on 'Hindu' and 'Kashmir'. It was reason enough for us to start looking for a possible Al Qaeda footprint in India," a senior intelligence official told Outlook. Barely four months later, as details started emerging in the thwarted Heathrow terror plot, links surfaced...

No, they are cold-blooded murderers with a mission to destroy every Jew, Christian and infidel if they do not convert to radical Islam. And every American, by definition, is an infidel. Which means the liberal politicians and liberal media are not infidels because they do not support the global war on terror.

    US foreign policy and political Islam today are deeply intertwined. Every US president since Jimmy Carter has had to deal with political Islam; none has been so challenged as George W. Bush. Policymakers, particularly since 9/11, have demonstrated an inability and/or unwillingness to distinguish between radical and moderate Islamists. They have largely treated political Islam as a global threat similar to the way that Communism was perceived. However, even in the case of Communism, foreign policymakers eventually moved from an ill-informed, broad-brush, and paranoid approach personified by Senator Joseph McCarthy in the 1950s to more nuanced, pragmatic, and reasonable policies...

    PESHAWAR, Aug 18: A son-in-law of Al Qaeda No 2 Dr Ayman Al-Zawahiri is believed to be the mastermind of the plot to blow up transatlantic flights and he met one or some of the plotters at a place close to the Pakistan-Afghan border, credible sources told Dawn. “The mastermind in the planes bombing plot is Zawahiri’s son-in-law,” said the sources who did not want to be named. “He is the guy being looked for,” they added. Osama bin Laden’s top lieutenant is known to have several sons-in-law. One of them was reported to have been killed in a...

    After four British Muslims blew up themselves and 52 others in a series of attacks here on July 7 last year, the British government convened a task force of prominent Muslims and pleaded for help in combating homegrown extremism. Continues...=========================================================== Massive Air Terror Plot foiled; Bush blamed A group of homicidal Islamic maniacs tried to blow up a bunch of airplanes in midflight, so naturally liberals think there must be some "rational" explanation for how such wonderful people with their peaceful religion could possibly fall under Karl Rove's spell like this. Whether it's hacking someone's head off with a dull...
  • Rangel Says Term “Islamofascist” an Insult

    In an appearance on the TV show “Hardball” Representative Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.) objected to President Bush’s the use of the term “Islamofascist” to describe the terrorists who blow up airplanes and buildings indiscriminately killing innocent men, women and children. “We gave Hitler, a white man, the benefit of the doubt in the 1930s,” said Rangel. “I know that turned out badly, but why shouldn’t brown men get the same benefit? Shouldn’t our policies be racially balanced.” “Besides, they haven’t killed that many people yet,” Rangel continued. “There ought to be some minimum number of deaths before we start calling them...

    Silence for security forces at the crossroads of terror By Isambard Wilkinson in Bahawalpur (Filed: 19/08/2006) If there is a crossroads of terror in Pakistan, it must be the town of Bahawalpur in southern Punjab. Home of at least one known terrorist organisation and several radical madrassas, or religious schools, Bahawalpur has became a focus for investigations in Pakistan following the foiling of an alleged plot to blow up aircraft flying across the Atlantic. Normally the local people might take pride in the actions of the jihadists. Only last month the relatives of one of the London bombers, Shehzad Tanweer,...

    LAST week, the luminaries of the British Muslim mainstream — lobbyists, lords and members of Parliament — published an open letter to Prime Minister Tony Blair, telling him that the “debacle” of both Iraq and Lebanon provides “ammunition to extremists who threaten us all.” In increasingly antiwar America, a similar argument is gaining traction: The United States brutalizes Muslims, which in turn foments Islamist terror. But violent jihadists have rarely needed foreign policy grievances to justify their hot heads. There was no equivalent to the Iraq debacle in 1993, when Islamists first tried to blow up the World Trade Center,...

    Pakistani officials say the arrest of a top al Qaeda commander could provide clues to the whereabouts of hidden terror cells around the world and to his superiors, Ayman al Zawahiri and Osama bin Laden. Pakistani police tell ABC News they arrested Matiur Rehman based on leads in the investigation of the foiled plot to blow up U.S.-bound airplanes from London. U.S. law enforcement officials say they have been notified by their counterparts in Pakistan that Rehman is in custody. U.S. intelligence officials say they cannot confirm his arrest and remain skeptical of the reports. Rehman is regarded as the...

    The current issue of The Wilson Quarterly features an essay by Martin Walker, editor of United Press International, called "Europe's Mosque Hysteria." The basic message: "Don't worry, be happy." Sure, there are "significant numbers of potential terrorist cells" throughout Europe that reject such Western delicacies as democracy, a respect for individual liberty, the separation of church and state, freedom of religion, women's rights, and so on (I expand a bit on the list that Mr. Walker supplies), but, hey, "there are other, more promising currents" of Islamic thought. "Muslims are being changed by Europe," Mr. Walker assures us, "just as...

    Islamabad - Pakistan has informed US-led coalition forces that an al-Qaeda kingpin linked to an alleged plot to blow up airliners is based in eastern Afghanistan, security officials said on Friday. The senior Pakistani officials said the unnamed al-Qaeda member was based in Afghanistan's volatile eastern province of Kunar, which borders Pakistan's militant-infested north-western tribal areas. The information came from the interrogation of Rashid Rauf, a Briton whose arrest by Pakistani agents in early August allegedly led to the uncovering of the conspiracy to bomb US-bound planes, they said. The officials, speaking on condition of anonymity, did not identify the...

    Interrogations of suspects in Pakistan lead its investigators to believe that the alleged plot to blow up US-bound jetliners was sanctioned by the Al-Qaeda leadership, a senior intelligence official said on Thursday. The terror group's No 2 leader, Ayman al-Zawahri probably cleared the plot, the official said on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the ongoing investigation. The latest investigations by Pakistan also indicate that a British national arrested in Pakistan, Rashid Rauf, planned the plot and recruited people in Pakistan. He had also made contacts with people in Britain to take part, the official said. He said...
  • What Is 'Islamofascism'? A history of the word from the first Westerner to use it.

    "Islamic fascists"--used by President George W. Bush for the conspirators in the alleged trans-Atlantic airline bombing plot--and references by other prominent figures to "Islamofascism," have been met by protests from Muslims who say the term is an insult to their religion. The meaning and origin of the concept, as well as the legitimacy of complaints about it, have become relevant--perhaps urgently so. I admit to a lack of modesty or neutrality about this discussion, since I was, as I will explain, the first Westerner to use the neologism in this context. In my analysis, as originally put in print directly...

    A leader of the Danish offshoot of Islamist group Hizb ut-Tahrir was sentenced to three months in prison by a Copenhagen court on Thursday for threatening Prime Minister Anders Fogh Rasmussen. Fadi Abdullatif, the spokesman of Hizb ut-Tahrir ("Party of Liberation" in Arabic), was found guilty of threatening Rasmussen in fliers distributed in 2004 calling for the elimination of Western leaders who would prevent Muslims from joining the insurgency in Iraq, a court official said. Abdullatif was also found guilty of breaking anti-racism laws by calling for the killing of Jews on the Islamist organisation's Danish Web site. Abdullatif has...

    The Jews everywhere are "the Muslim's bitter enemies," said a prominent Islamic leader. Throughout history, the "irreconcilable enemy of Islam" has conspired and schemed and "oppressed and persecuted 40 million Muslims," he said. In Palestine, the Jews are establishing "a base from which to extend their power over neighboring Islamic countries." And, he proclaimed, "this war, which was unleashed by the world Jewry," provided "Muslims the best opportunity to free themselves from these instances of persecution and oppression." Sound like Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah? Or perhaps Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? Nope. It was the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Haj...
