Gitmo: What Promise?

Like thousands of previous promises, the promise to shut down Guantanamo Bay prison, has now become a broken promise; with Obama in office, we can’t even repeat the old saying: “Pale face speaks with forked tongue“.
 
The promise was to shut down Gitmo with one year…exactly one year ago, it was not just a “liberal” promise (for those who use ‘liberal’ as an epithet), it was something that began under King George the Worst. Continue reading

“What is Wrong With Muslims?”

A friend forwarded me an article from the magazine Psychology Today, written by a British writer Satoshi Kanazawa who calls himself an “Evolutionary Psychologist” and works as a Reader at The London School of Economics.

The article, “What is Wrong With Muslims?” makes a great pretense of being scholarly and intellectual, but in reality, is an expression of disgusting, thoughtless, bigotry. Continue reading

Profiling: “Terrorism” and other crimes

A young Nigerian tried to blow up a passenger airplane as it approached Detroit and fortunately, succeeded in burning himself instead; It could have been disastrous.
The bigots and the ignorant have been having one field day after another, ever since.
 
Loud proclamations could be heard, to the effect:
  • “He was a devout Muslim!” (now THERE is a true mark of a trrrrst!)
  • “What to do about these Muslim terrorists?”
  • “He was Muslim, flying one-way, had no luggage and paid with cash”
  • “Muslims between 18 and 28 years of age, should be strip-searched before letting them board a plane”, said a retired US General (why not just shoot them all, General?) Continue reading

“War!”; gathering intelligence intelligently

  The man who blew himself up and took 7 CIA men with him should help teach us in the US, the same lesson…yet again! But if the lesson learnt is that we should not trust Arabs and Muslims, then all seven CIA lives, all American lives before them and all lives that will be taken in the future, will have been totally wasted.  

What should the US have learnt, this time, as they should have, a long time ago? There is no substitute for good intelligence-gathering and good intelligence-gathering does not come through the eye of a satellite, the cross-hairs of a drone or, from a rented stranger, it comes from good friends. But first, let us see how the US deliberately alienates Muslims across the world.   Continue reading

Muslim? Don’t scratch your nose…

The ever-growing number of bigots in America can barely restrain themselves as they silently thank Nigerian Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, for his botched attempt to blow up an airline…NOW they can let their bigotries loose again and be blessed as REAL Patriots for it!!!
 
From the FBI, a department of Fatherland Security that has yet to be seen as objective as far as Muslims are concerned, to Joe Six-pack and John Patriot, everybody will be shooting for Muzlems wherever they can…the hunt is on…again!
Black? You’re are screwed…again!! Continue reading

Virgins In Paradise

(First published January 1, 2009) “Suicide-bombers blow themselves up because they are promised 72 virgins in Heaven”…Oh, how I loathe this statement!

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”. Continue reading

The Reality of Suicide Bombing

Most people of good will should be able to condemn not only suicide bombing but ANY act of wanton killing whether it is done by our side (“good guys”) or the their side (“bad guys”). Unfortunately the Israel/Palestine dispute has so polarized people that they have no hesitation in condemning the other side without ever seeking to understand. All too often, seeking to understand the other is seen as taking sides by people blinded by partisanship. Continue reading

Pakistan’s conflict in Swat

The way the United States is conducting the pursuit of its policy will only bring more war and destruction to Afghanistan and Pakistan and is also guaranteed to spread into India. Continue reading

Israel and Palestine; letter to my Congressman

Dear Congressman Inslee,
 
Thank you for taking the time to send me your reason (letter below) why you chose to endorse a condemnation of the Goldstone Report; I am afraid I cannot accept your response as a considered one.
 
While I realize you might never see this, I feel you need to understand why we are feeling such agony over your signing of that infamous resolution.
 
I wonder if you have ever visited Gaza?
It is about 360 sq Km (137 sq. mi, see detailed maps below) in total with about 1,500,000 people imprisoned inside…that is almost 11,000 people per square mile (17 per acre) if everybody was neatly spread around all of Gaza, desert and all. If you were told to “run” with your children, where exactly would you have been able to escape Israeli bombs when Israel was even bombing the beaches of Gaza? Israeli forces deliberately even killed entire families who were surrendering with white flags.
Yet you surprise me by saying, “Israel’s implementation of warning efforts that appear to have saved lives“.
Are you aware of DIME weapons that we have provided Israel? Ha’aretz reports that “The problem is that when you are killed – you are ripped to shreds and there is nothing left“. Continue reading
