"To comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable"

What is happening to my America?

With great fanfare, Republican House Representative from New York’s 3rd Congressional District, Peter King, who is also the Chairman of the House Homeland Security Committee, convened a hearing with the title: “The Extent of Radicalization in the American Muslim Community and That Community’s Response.”.
 

Republican Representative Peter King at the "Hearings"

 
There are so many ironies in this entire charade that we could all die laughing, if it were not so deathly serious.
Rep. King is the same man who was an ardent and activist supporter of the terrorist Irish Republican Army, so much so, that when he was the Grand Marshall leading a St Patrick’s Day parade in New York, the Irish Republic refused to join the parade, as had been the tradition, citing King’s terrorist sympathies and work for the IRA.
Referring to the civilian killings by the IRA in Northern Ireland, King said at the time, “If civilians are killed in an attack on a military installation, it is certainly regrettable, but I will not morally blame the IRA for it“.
As recently as the 2010 elections, Peter King’s political opponent in the Congressional race, called King “A Terrorist Collaborator“, citing his support for the IRA. It is a shameful commentary on the electorate, that King still won. Continue reading

Lessons lost on US, West…and Israel; How to make enduring enemies

As Egypt struggles against the tyranny of over 50 years…well over 50 years under Mubarak, Sadaat and Nasser…the West (USA) is looking apprehensively.
 
While the empty slogans of “Freedom”, “Democracy”, “Free Speech” are pattered ad nauseum by all from the President of the United States down to the Republican Guards and echoed by the spineless gallery of the Democrats, nobody in their right minds envision those slogans to apply to the unwashed of the world…they can hardly tolerate them to be applied right HERE, in this great bastion of hypocrisy (er, I mean, Democracy).
 
Not wishing to be caught speechless, our Secretary of State, madam Hillary Clinton has forced herself to support the idea that democracy should prevail in Egypt…after “an orderly transition”…maybe meaning, another hundred years.
 
Egypt after all, is hardly like Tunisia; Egypt is the great stronghold against Arabs and Palestinians and a “strong partner in peace with Israel”….oh, yes, Israel! People are having heartburns in Israel and they are forcing their public into believing that if Egypt “falls”, the end of Time for Israel, is at hand…here come the cattle-cars and there fire the ovens!!!

Planting Prejudice In Our Defenders

For the story behind this commentary, please  read from this link.
 
 
Prejudice goes a long way. After it infects the primary person, it is passed on the others at the same level, to juniors and to other impressionable people, until very soon, its effects can be seen across the board
 
Prejudice is corrosive at all levels, it is bad when parents share their prejudice with their children who make it their own, it is bad when friends share their prejudice with each other and exercise it against others, but it is especially bad when it is shared in training of people who have the power of freedom or prison; life or death.
 
Prejudice travels best when it is unopposed and when it is disguised as beneficial to neighbors or, to society, thus causing irretrievable damage.
This is how genocidal movements get their energy and how they succeed; just ask Hitler, Milosevic, Habyarimana…ask anybody who is in the hate-business and they will share their prejudice, cloaked as a blessing to humanity. The justifications for spreading prejudice, almost always include the protection of the innocence of a society against an inexorable evil.
 
One unintended consequence of promoting prejudice is, that once unleashed, it becomes uncontrollable and attacks the originators and the spectators, just as easily as the targets.
The Germans who watched silently as Jews were marched off to death camps, soon found themselves rubbing shoulders with the same Jews in the same camps; the Sunni Muslims who stayed on the sidelines as extremist Sunnis bombed Shia gatherings, soon found themselves and their own loved ones also being targeted and victimized by the same fanatics.
 
There has always been a latent prejudice against Muslims in the West and Continue reading

Pakistan and the Death of a Hero

Illiteracy, ignorance, closed-mindedness and intolerance won the day when Asia bibi, a Christian woman living in a largely Muslim village, was accused of insulting the prophet Mohammed and jailed under Pakistan’s so-called “Blasphemy” laws; she was sentenced to death  by a Pakistani court, because she supposedly said, “the Quran is fake and your prophet remained in bed for one month before his death because he had worms in his ears and mouth. He married Khadija just for money and after looting her kicked her out of the house.”

As a Muslim who grew up in Pakistan…a MUCH more tolerant Pakistan then than now, I can tell you that this statement could never have been made by a Christian villager in Pakistan, no matter what the provocation…never. The only exception under which a non-Muslim IN PAKISTAN, would say such a thing, would be if the speaker were stupid, crazy AND incurably suicidal. Clearly, the allegations were manufactured by the women who took the accusation to the local imam who then laid the charges against her, later saying he “cried tears of joy when the sentence was passed”. Idiot. Continue reading

Virgins in Paradise

Suicide-bombers blow themselves up because they are promised 72 virgins in Heaven

Oh, how this statement makes my skin crawl!

Critics of Islam like to describe “Virgins in Paradise” (“Houris”) as base, sex-objects and motivation for Muslim suicide-bombers, because it helps promote hate and fear towards Islam and Muslims. The tactic works because of the negative connotations for sex in the ‘Christian’ part of the “Judeo-Christian Civilization”.

Suicide-bombers of different faiths (they include Muslims, Christians, Buddhists and Hindus), go to their destructive ends for myriad reasons, ranging from oppression, desperation, manipulation and perhaps, nothing left to look forward to. This is an ENTIRELY different, very complex subject and must be reserved for later discussion.

The Quran , the holy book of Islam, is considered as the written word of God in Classical Arabic, whose validity cannot be argued but, its meaning can still vary, depending on the nuances of interpretation and translation. It is possible for a translator to Continue reading

Terrorist bombers: Xmas Tree bomber vs. Times Square bomber

If we wait just a little while (not even “long enough”), an idiot Muslim will emerge with some plot to kill innocent people for an inexplicably idiot “reason”…and once again, America will look at us and ask, “Why do you think we should not treat you all with suspicion?”
 
A Somali Muslim was caught in Portland, Oregon  with the means and a plan to blow up a car during the Christmas tree lighting ceremony where about 10,000 people gather. Had he succeeded, it would have killed at least a couple of hundred people and maimed that many more….all innocent people, innocent families, out to enjoy a bit of life’s simple pleasures.
 
Earlier, a Pakistani Muslim was  caught after a failed attempt to blow up a car in New York’s Times Square, had HE succeeded, he would have exacted at least as many victims as the Portland bomber.
 
A comparison of the two types above, would be instructive… Continue reading

When it’s okay to kill Muslims

On May 28, a number of Muslim extremists attacked two Mosques belonging to a Muslim minority sect generally known as “Qadianis” (hailing from Qadian) or Ahmedis (followers of Mirza Ahmed); they managed to kill at least 80 worshipers, using hand-grenades and automatic rifles before being killed themselves, blowing themselves up or, being captured.
 
Qadianis are probably the most persecuted group in Pakistan. They are discriminated against in jobs and killed with fair regularity and to most Pakistanis, the persecution of Qadianis is just another ho-hum event. Continue reading

An Islamic center and Ground Zero

As plans move forward to building an Islamic center and Mosque near ground Zero in New York, the anti-Muslim and anti-Islam bigots are gathering support and steam. Some opponents tall us that the thirteen story building will house all sorts of “secrets” to help destroy the US, some tell us if a cultural cent-Mosque is permitted so close to Ground Zero, it will be seen as a victory for the extremists. Others do away with such seemingly “rational” excuses and focus on their hate towards Islam; “It will advance Sharia!” they tell us, while not understanding that Sharia has nothing at all, to do with the version poured into us by the media.

The most persuasive arguments are those that hide behind the  real or imaginary sensitivities of the relatives and survivors of the 9-11 tragedy. Continue reading

Muslim Women are in Trouble!

I was reading a new post from my friend Richard Silverstein’s blog Tikun Olam, he was talking about another assassination campaign by The Clarion Fund, the same one that, together with Aish Ha’Torah, is behind other stellar examples of anti-Muslim fear-mongering like “Obsession” and “The Third Jihad”.
 
This time, the target is Iran…that nation of murderers who are just itching to kill every American and Jew and who will surely blow up the entire world as soon as they get their dirty hands on (gasp!) “THE BOMB!!!!“. If the Blindly pro-Israeli Lobbies (and there are many) get their way, every Muslim should be subjected to Der Fuhrer‘s Final Solution before everyone in the “Judeo-Christian Civilization” is wiped out. Not only would this protect our sacred “Freedom” and “Democracy”, it would also defend Israel, that other bastion of “Democracy” that is fighting its lonely war for survival as it is forced to kill a few thousand Palestinians every year (they keep reproducing so fast!).
Sarcasm aside, don’t ever underestimate the raw power of the producers of these films, combined with the political power of organizations like AIPAC, ADL, AJC, the Republican Party, hundreds of supporting Synagogues and right-wing Christian Churches and uncountable nutters.
Together, they can mobilize propaganda that would make Goebbels envious, remember, it is just such a Cooperation of Evil that launched the “War!” against Afghanistan and Iraq, killing well over a million humans and layering the two countries with a carpet of gene-deforming Depleted Uranium (half-life = 4.5 BILLION years).
It is just this Coalition of Evil that is behind the persecution of Muslims in America and in the West (as Muslims sit on their hands).
 
Can it get any worse? Just don’t ask the question…
 
Richard also noted a rather humorous item…at least, humorous in a dark, unfunny way, for those of us who are not women and maybe hilarious to those of us who are not Muzlem.
I followed his story through a few links and sources and found that the sources are popular but not at all credible, if one is a rational, intelligent human being, but completely TRUE!!!! By God! if one is among the growing numbers of “Patriots”, those who love America (tear rolls down a strong cheek) and are willing to die for THE Flag (rounds get chambered) and to protect America by God! (Cross-hairs on Muzlems).
