Just desserts for a bitter man. I'm sure it will make his hatred of the military intensify, but it is just dessert for this loser.

Today will be a short post from me, as we should all be spending time with our families rather than surfing and blogging. Same goes for me.
Pedestrian Infidel would like to wish all our readers and their families a safe and joyous Christmas this season. And for our Jewish friends, we hope you had a joyous Hannukah this year as well.
With any luck, we'll all still be around next year to see in the next Festive Season.

I remember that I used to be very fond of martyrdom. I never forgot what my parents and teachers taught me about martyrdom—they told me, that’s what Mohammed always wished for. Since I wanted to be like him in all respects, death was constantly on my mind. I wasn’t scared of it, rather, I wanted to embrace it.
Today, when I look back, I see that wish in a distant corner locked up in a box, because Christianity taught me how to ‘live’, not die. Through Christianity, I learned how to make the world around me better, and I forgot all about devising heroic plans to die. The difference between Christianity and Islam, to me, is the same as that between life and death and as clear as the difference between light and darkness. Islam always seemed to be a quick one-way trip to death—the answer to all the world’s problems was death in the name of Allah—but Christianity is a whole new hope for life.
But many around me here in Dubai, and on the internet, seem to be advocating death over life being the right way for me. From many others, even Christians, I seem to be getting the message that, until you’re persecuted and officially dead, you’re not a real Christian. Many around me would prefer to see me die in the name of Christ, than get freedom and live a life that I want to live.
This sounds all too familiar to me. When I decided to convert to Christianity, honestly, it wasn’t the persecution that I was so fond of, but the hope of life both here and the world hereafter. Death for religion and god is offered as the right path on every single page of Islamic literature. If that’s what I really wanted, I’d either be fighting somewhere in Kashmir or Afghanistan or Iraq right now, or long since dead. But instead I choose life—if that’s sinful of me, so be it. I’m not one of those people who believe that one cannot be a Christian without being physically persecuted.
Many have told me that I should speak up here—I should talk to my family and other people around me about Christianity in general and my conversion in particular and if I face persecution and, eventually, death, the good news is that I will be with Christ in heaven. Some have even told me that they dreamed that that was my destiny. I think no one has a right to make decisions about my life but myself—even God let me have that right and didn’t give it to anyone else. No one and I mean NO ONE is in the position to tell me to die or give up my life because it’s not something they own.
I realize that I won’t live forever, and I don’t want to either. But I also realize that I will never again come to this world—that I won’t ever be able to long for going to church like I do today and if/when I am able to do that, never will I feel that joy after I am dead.
I can die of some disease tomorrow, who knows—but I won’t regret that. What I will regret, though, is throwing my life away knowing that I could’ve lived for another day and given this life a chance—a chance to LIVE for Christ.

From the 910 group. (HT Steve Harkonnen)
Dear 910 Group Activist,
We are asking for your help. Please send either the email text provided below, or your rewrite of it, to your Congressman and Senator, and if possible also mail a print copy to them. Below is text for an email and letter campaign protesting the Council on American-Islamic Relation (CAIR) attack against Representative Virgil Goode (R-VA), for his legitimate criticisms of Representative–elect Keith Ellison’s (D-MN) plan to use a Koran for his swearing-in. You can change this text as you see fit, and your letter should be sent from you personally, not from the “910 Group.”
Please send this letter to your Congressional Representatives and Senators by email. Just cut and paste the text into your own email, rewrite it if you want, and then copy the contact information for your Congressman and Senators into the “to” line.
For contact info for your representatives, go here: http://www.congress.org/congressorg/officials/congress and enter your zip code or address.
To send a copy of your email to your local media, as well as national media, go here: http://www.congress.org/congressorg/dbq/media and enter your zip code.
To send a copy of your email to the Republican National HQ, asking them to stand by Goode, go here: http://www.gop.com/ContactUs/
A warning: Congress now blocks many emails, so to be effective, you should also send your letter by regular postal mail (snailmail). Remember to include in both the email and letter the information that you are a constituent, the city where you live, that you vote, any relevant organizational or interest group affiliations, and whether you are an employer in the state.
Thanks for your help in this urgent matter.
The 910 Group Directors
In the last twenty-four hours, U.S Representative Virgil H. Goode Jr. (R-VA) has been subjected to an unfair and biased persecution, orchestrated by the extremist, Hamas-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), for positions that he expressed in a recent letter to his constituents. In this letter, Rep. Goode wrote with concern over Muslim immigration into the United States , and criticized the decision of Representative-elect Keith Ellison to use the Koran at his swearing-in ceremony. Rep. Goode has also received several threatening phone calls according to the Franklin County Sheriff - simply for writing a letter to his constituents.
Enough is enough. I am writing to ask for your support for Rep. Goode. The symbolism of using the Koran at a ceremony where Mr. Ellison will swear to uphold and protect the Constitution of the United States should raise questions about the obvious conflict of interest that Mr. Ellison must have in fulfilling such an oath. We need to stand firm against pressure from extremist Islamist advocacy groups, and from their appeasers in the media and in our Congress.
Rep. Goode of course supports the right of any American to practice his or her religion, no matter what it is. So do I, and I know you do also. But he doesn’t support the right to practice a dangerous political ideology, in the form of Radical Islam, which is masquerading as a religion.
Radical Islam is a political ideology, like communism or fascism, that threatens most Muslims and all non-Muslims worldwide. People of all other religions, including freedom-loving Muslims and atheists, are in its gunsights. All races are its victims, and people all over the world are being blown up, beheaded, tortured, and intimidated by those who act in the name of this bullying political ideology.
When Rep. Goode and our other elected representatives put their hands on the Bible to swear an oath, they are simply asking God to be their witness. They are not citing Christian or Jewish or other religious authority to justify or require any particular legislative action.
But a Muslim’s holy book requires him to wage jihad and create certain political – not religious – institutions such as sharia law, which are in direct opposition to American values and the American Constitution. The Koran, which to Muslims is the word of God, compels believers to install by any means the legal and political system of sharia in all human societies. It regards the land as belonging only to Allah and commands believers to return it to the community of Islam from the occupying non-believers. The literal application of teachings in the Koran would compel our society to live under these harsh strictures of sharia law, the legal code prescribed by the Koran, which denies basic rights to women, prescribes death to Islam’s apostates, and forbids or subjugates other religions.
This political ideology of Radical Islam is a clear and present danger in this country and throughout the civilized world. America ’s traditions of open-handedness and religious tolerance have been used against us. If we do not take a stance against this political ideology, and its apologists like CAIR, someday the tradition of American tolerance will no longer exist.
For this reason we ask you to support Rep. Goode in his concern that the Koran demands loyalties that directly counter our Constitutional liberties. We ask that you call on all Muslims in America to repudiate publicly the Islamic scriptures and traditions which sanction conquest by violence, oppression, and religious intolerance.
We live in a dangerous world, one in which deceit and disinformation are being used against us by an implacable enemy. Self-appointed spokesmen such as CAIR pretend to represent Muslim Americans but in fact represent nothing more than the interests of their fundamentalist millionaire backers. It is no longer enough to take their word that they and their co-religionists mean the rest of us no harm. It is both reasonable and prudent to ask Muslims to demonstrate by both word and deed that they support the United States Constitution and the rule of law, even if it disagrees with their religion’s instructions. Especially if it disagrees with their religion’s instructions.
This is the line we are drawing. We need to know who is standing on our side of the line, and we welcome you, and people of all religions, including Islam, to stand with us.

For Immediate Release

U.S. SENATOR BARBARA BOXER GIVES AWARD TO CAIR EXTREMIST
AAH CALLS ON SENATOR BOXER TO WITHDRAW AWARD
(Coral Springs, FL) Americans Against Hate (AAH), a civil rights organization and terrorism watchdog group, is calling on United States Senator Barbara Boxer to rescind the award she has presented to the Executive Director of CAIR-Sacramento Basim Elkarra. The award, a certificate of achievement for "outstanding service," was given to Elkarra earlier this month.
As Executive Director, Basim Elkarra has defended someone that trained for jihad in a Pakistani terrorist camp; he has defended an imam that urged a Pakistani crowd to wage attacks on America; and he has defended an imam that was attempting to build an Islamic school for the purpose of teaching children how to commit violent acts against Americans. As well, Elkarra has described Israel as a "racist" and "apartheid" state, and he has moderated an event that featured a Hamas operative who spent five years in an Israeli prison and who is currently on trial in the U.S.
The organization Elkarra is affiliated with, CAIR, has a number of ties to Islamic extremism. Four officials from CAIR have been charged with terrorist activity, two convicted and two deported. CAIR is currently the defendant in a lawsuit put forward by the family of FBI Agent John O'Neill for the group's role in the 9/11 attacks. CAIR solicited funds for two "charities" whose accounts were frozen by the Department of Treasury for financing Hamas and Al-Qaeda. And CAIR's parent organization, the Islamic Association for Palestine (IAP), was shut down, shortly after it was found liable for the murder of an American boy during a Hamas attack. AAH Chairman and founder of CAIR Watch, Joe Kaufman, stated, "Both Elkarra and the organization he represents exhibit behavior that is unworthy of such an honor as Senator Boxer has bestowed. We therefore demand that Senator Boxer withdraw the award immediately."
Joe Kaufman is available for interview. E-mail: http://us.f905.mail.yahoo.com/ym/Compose?Tofirstname.lastname@example.org.
UPDATE: Good news! Sen Boxer has rescinded this award.

This blog is not going to be about all jihad, all the time. And so, a change of pace is in order, if but for today. Tomorrow, it will be back to the usual fare.
Ten years ago yesterday, one of my childhood idols died, killed by a rare disease, far too young. Astronomer and scientist Carl Sagan captivated me with his spellbinding Cosmos series when I was growing up, and I was hooked. I've read and/or bought every book that he's put into print. His views, to say the least, have had a profound influence on my personal world-view and what I hold to be important.
While I confess to not exactly seeing eye to eye with the man's politics, his overarching themes of rationalism, skeptical inquiry, and the need for reason to triumph over blind obediance are lessons that are timeless as they are critical to our future as a species.
Most important of Dr. Sagan's themes is this one, a choice for Humankind faces us, which is as simple as it is stark: spaceflight or extinction. Those are our choices. For humanity to survive in the medium to long term, we much reach out to other worlds, and then to the stars. Holding ourselves back, for whatever reason, whether it be ideological dogmatism (Islam, et al), or something as prosaic as timidity, laziness and procrastination in the face of the infinite, will doom our kind to fail and perish. We must not, cannot allow that to happen.
Words, however, as powerful and moving as they may be, can only take us so far in understanding our place in the cosmos. Dr. Sagan, a nonpareil communicator if there ever was one, understood this all too well. Sometimes, an illustration, or better yet, a simple photograph, is the preferable choice for conveying an important message.
On October 13, 1994, in the autumn of his life, Carl Sagan was delivering a public lecture at his own university of Cornell. During that lecture, he presented this photo:
The photo to the left was taken by Voyager 1 unmanned spacecraft in 1990 as it sailed away from Earth, more than 4 billion miles (6.5 billion km) away at that time. Having completed it primary mission, Voyager was and still is on its way out of the Solar System. Ground Control issued a command for the distant space craft to turn around and, looking back, take photos of each of the planets it had visited. From Voyager's vast distance, the Earth was captured as a infinitesimal point of light (between the two white tick marks), actually smaller than a single pixel of the photo.
The image was taken with Voyager's narrow angle camera lens, with the Sun quite close to the field of view. Quite by accident, the Earth was captured in one of the scattered light rays caused by taking the image at an angle so close to the Sun. Dr. Sagan was quite moved by this image of our tiny world. Here is a memorable excerpt from the late Dr. Sagan's talk:
"We succeeded in taking that picture [from deep space], and, if you look at it, you see a dot. That's here. That's home. That's us. On it, everyone you ever heard of, every human being who ever lived, lived out their lives. The aggregate of all our joys and sufferings, thousands of confident religions, ideologies and economic doctrines, every hunter and forager, every hero and coward, every creator and destroyer of civilizations, every king and peasant, every young couple in love, every hopeful child, every mother and father, every inventor and explorer, every teacher of morals, every corrupt politician, every superstar, every supreme leader, every saint and sinner in the history of our species, lived there on a mote of dust, suspended in a sunbeam.
The earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that in glory and in triumph they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of the dot on scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner of the dot. How frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds. Our posturings, our imagined self-importance, the delusion that we have some privileged position in the universe, are challenged by this point of pale light. Our planet is a lonely speck in the great enveloping cosmic dark. In our obscurity -- in all this vastness -- there is no hint that help will come from elsewhere to save us from ourselves. It is up to us.
It's been said that astronomy is a humbling, and I might add, a character-building experience. To my mind, there is perhaps no better demonstration of the folly of human conceits than this distant image of our tiny world. To me, it underscores our responsibility to deal more kindly and compassionately with one another and to preserve and cherish that pale blue dot, the only home we've ever known."

Looking for some meaty reading this holiday season? Need some more ammo to take down the dhimmiwits, 'progressives', leftists and other fifth columnists that you will inevitably run into at the next Christmas party?
You're in luck; the PI team has a great read for you. It's a column called 'Islam on Trial: The Prosecution’s Case against Islam'. The author's name is Amber Pawlik.
A few months ago, I researched and wrote a piece that was superficially along the same lines. Namely, that Islam should be put on trial for numerous crimes and charges. Well, Ms. Pawlik tackles this same theme from a different angle, and does it in a much more effective, nay, devastating way. Amber shows everyone just how pathetic, violent and hateful the Islamic 'faith' is. Her research, particularly of the Koran, is thorough as it is damning.
If I were the jury, based on this case, I'd convict.
Furthermore, I'm impressed enough with the caliber of thisis counter-jihad work to place it permanently in the PI sidebar as one of our references on the Enemy.
Amber's column is too long to put here, but I'm urging you to read it. Do yourself a favor this Christmas, and read Amber's carefully researched and thought-out work.
Enjoy your reading...Happy Chanukah and Merry Christmas.

This excellent editorial from an American university (Wayne State University) asks, as its title, "(Is) Iran today's Nazi state?" The essay then goes on to answer this question all too well in no uncertain terms.
It's heartening to see these sorts of counter-leftist thoughts being so openly displayed in a usual bastion of leftist thought, namely an American institution of 'higher learning'.
Opinion: Iran: Today’s Nazi State?
Students for Israel
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad met with Hamas Authority leader Ismail Haniyeh on Dec. 1, according to the Israeli news source Arutz Sheva. The topics the men discussed included the “illegitimacy” of the “Zionist regime” that is the state of Israel, and the Palestinian people’s determination to continue vicious acts against Israeli civilians if their hopes for a “liberated” Jerusalem were ever to be realized.
Ahmadinejad and those he met with agreed that Israel was an “arrogant state” designed to “penetrate the heart of Muslim land.” He also mentioned that “the Palestinian nation and Muslims as a whole will emerge victorious” — supposedly referring to the current conflict in the Middle East. However, his remarks might also be interpreted as a reference to worldwide domination.
Perhaps you have heard of Ahmadinejad before. After all, this man has been in the news quite a bit lately. He has recently boasted of Iran’s newly launched nuclear program, has denied the occurrence of the Holocaust, and has made public his wishes to destroy Israel by “wiping it off the map.”
This man’s desire to annihilate a Jewish nation, his encouragement of violent behavior, and his hints at expanding the Iranian regime into more and more territory leaves me asking an important question: doesn’t this man remind you of Adolf Hitler?
The similarities between Ahmadinejad and the Fuehrer are striking. Ahmadinejad loathes the Jews, just as Hitler did. Ahmadinejad is trying to gain more and more land, just as Hitler did. Ahmadinejad is preparing a dangerous, threatening military arsenal, just as Hitler did. When comparing the two men side by side, it is quite easy to see how both Hitler and Ahmadinejad are evil incarnate.
Most frightening, however, is that while Ahmadinejad is doing all these things, the citizens of the world sit by and watch, without uttering a single word of protest. It is an eerie reminder of what happened in the 1930s, when people said to themselves, “Oh, Hitler? What can he do that will even affect us?” The most striking example of this attitude was when then Prime Minister of England Neville Chamberlain chose to appease Adolf Hitler by allowing him to enter Czechoslovakia.
We all know that this was a crucial step in Hitler’s plan to crush the opposition. Once he had the approval of other nations, he could conquer lands that were not his. In order to accomplish this, he trained soldiers to be cruel and ruthless. Most notably, he systematically murdered over 10 million people — 6 million of which were Jewish.
Sixty years later, Ahmadinejad wants to recreate this nightmare — on a nuclear scale. Let me ask a few key questions.
Why is it that the only state Ahmadinejad wants destroyed is the state of Israel? Do people really think it is just a coincidence that the same man who denies the Holocaust wants an end to the only Jewish state in existence?
Why is it that Iran has refused to back down with regard to its threatening nuclear programs? Do people really think it is just a coincidence that the same man who supports Palestinian violence supports a potentially catastrophic nuclear weapons program?
Finally, why is it that most Americans ignore Iran? Do people really think it is just a coincidence that the same man who has been consistently aggressive is promising worldwide Islamofascist domination?
The answer to these questions, I believe, is that we would like to act like Neville Chamberlain. Oftentimes, we feel that the way to avoid catastrophe is to let “the bad guys” have what they want — just once. This sort of appeasement can be highly tempting, as I am sure it was to Chamberlain.
Look where his actions led, though. Think about the millions of deaths. Think about the soldiers marching. Think about the buildings aflame. Is this what we want to happen – again?
We cannot be like Chamberlain. We must crush evil wherever it rears its ugly head, and that includes Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. We must not give him an inch. If we do, our own kind will suffer the horrible consequences.
One might think that facism is dead today, but we have been proven wrong time and again by Ahmadinejad and those student groups who support his viewpoints. Now I am asking you to do something about it. Write to your elected representatives. Hold rallies. Do something — anything — to help stop this evil man and his supporters from perpetrating yet another Holocaust, yet another World War, yet another tragedy.

This piece is from Riber Hansson, of Stockholm Sweden. He is an editorial freelancing cartoonist and illustrator for several Swedish daily newspapers.
I was a bit surprised when I first saw this cartoon and where it originated from. Is it finally coming to pass, that (some of) the Dhimmis of al-Skandia (Scandanavia) are beginning to notice the darkness emanating from Iran?
Those Swedes, considering their history of collaborating with the Third Reich, they should know a thing or two about Nazis.

Have you heard? Reid, England's Michael Chertoff, has just given up. Terror attacks are just the way it's going to be. And in the Netherlands, they are in a panic about how radicalized the 'youth' have become. Oh and those converts - becoming a problem, especially the women. Eurabia rises from the bloody cesspool. No one knows what to do. To even think the thought that Islam should be banned, why it's unthinkable. Isn't it so obvious. They just don't know what to do. Just cannot figure it out. That is what political correctness has done to the West. Wake up America, you are next!
Oh and all those 'youths' in the Netherlands. I believe Rotterdam will be majority Muslim far sooner than the optimistic 2020 date I see bandied about. It is already a majority in the maternity ward.
Isn't it ironic! Amsterdam, swinger's paradise, pot haven, secular madness, altruism in action, now they are being consumed by a religion, but a very different religion. A cult perfected. All those 'mechanics' of a cult to keep the ball rolling, justifying violence against criticism, or heaven forbid, those who choose to abandon the crap. All approved by Allah. Who is by the way our God, it's all in the books, those vile, hateful evil books, the Qu'ran, a rambling mess of hate, and those Hadiths - 'let me help you get the gist of the Quran', and the Surah Biography of Mo - 'look what I can do!'
It's infuriating watching the ignorance, fighting the ignorance.
There's always tomorrow, they say. You see Europe collapsing, the first Muslim in Congress. It is just shocking. Isn't it lemmings that walk in mass off a cliff? Sounds like Europe, no change that, the 'West' is a leaping. We dare not say it. Islam should be banned. Can't say it! Don't you dare!
You had better wake up America! You cannot win if you do not face the enemy and spit in his face. And that face is Islam.
While trying to escape through Pakistan, Osama Bin Laden found a bottle in the desert sands and picked it up.
Suddenly, a female genie rose from the bottle, and with a smile said “Master, may I grant you one wish?"
"You ignorant unworthy daughter-of-a-dog! Don't you know who I am? I don't need any common woman giving me anything" barked Bin Laden.
The shocked genie said, "Please, I must grant you a wish or I will be returned to that bottle forever."
Osama thought a moment. Then he grumbled about the impertinence of the woman, and said, "Very well, I want to awaken with three American women in my bed in the morning, so just do it and be off with you!"
The annoyed genie said, So be it!" and disappeared.
The next morning Bin Laden woke up in bed with Lorena Bobbitt, Tonya Harding and Hillary Clinton.
His penis was gone, his knees were broken, and he had no health insurance.
Happy Islamic Friday to the readers of PI. All two of them.

THIS CHANUKAH WE MUST CONFRONT THE HOLOCAUST DENIERS IN TEHRAN (hat tip, EuroKafir)
Excerpts From Survivor Testimony "WITNESS TO THE TRUTH" Conference:
Toronto: "To those who deny the Holocaust ever happened I would like them to personally explain to me what happened to my 6-year old brother, who was murdered in Auschwitz, to my 33-year old mother, my 36-year old father and to the one and a half million children who did not survive the Holocaust!"
--Sally Wasserman, survived Dobrowa Ghetto, Poland; 8 year-old orphan when liberated
New York: "The philosopher Edmund Burke said, 'For evil to triumph, good men have to do nothing.' I kept my silence until 10 years ago when a Holocaust denier came to Queens College where I work, to talk about whether the Holocaust took place...[Today] if this monster in human form [Ahmadinejad] manages to convince people that the Holocaust didn't take place, future generations will pay for it."
--Karl Schapiro, survivor hidden under floorboards in barn in Poland
Los Angeles: "It's important that people hear our cries and see our tears-that they know. They took everything away from me but I will not allow them to take my memory and my soul."
--Eva Brown, survivor Auschwitz, Plaszow Camps; who lost 60 members of her family December 13, 2006
On 11 December 2006, fifty Survivors gathered in New York, Toronto and Los Angeles to chronicle their experiences during the Holocaust for an historic video conference, "Witness to the Truth," which was widely covered by the international media.
None of the Survivors could believe that 65 years after Auschwitz they were forced to assemble to confront Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who held a two-day conference in Tehran, for the purpose of denying the Holocaust.
With palpable anguish and disbelief, these Survivors, now in the last years of their lives, were forced again to validate their experiences. But there was no alternative -- they had to retell their accounts in order to refute the President of Iran, an individual who wants to obliterate Israel, who has called the Holocaust "a myth" and who is on the verge of acquiring nuclear weapons.
We are about to celebrate Chanukah, a festival commemorating a time when Light extinguished Darkness. We must do the same in our time. We must confront the darkness that now emanates from Iran.
The Simon Wiesenthal Center is producing an important DVD, "Witness to the Truth" in order to share the courage and tenacity of these fifty Survivors, who each told their stories in 5 minutes, with schools and universities in North America and abroad.
It is vital for the younger generation to hear the words of these Survivors so that they can be empowered to stand up to the deniers of the Holocaust. Please partner with us and contribute generously and help us to produce the "Witness to the Truth" DVD. We're counting on your support.
Happy Chanukah to you and your family.

Boy, that CAIR has some cajones. Now they are urging Muslims flying to Mecca to harrass airlines when they fly to Mecca. Civil rights you know. Muslims are special and require white glove treatment because they are better than the najis kafir. CAIR believes American infidels and corporations are scared of Muslims and will grovel at their feet and beg them not to kill us or sue us. JihadWatch points out the hyprocrisy - infidels can't go to Mecca - we're najis, but those same infidels had better not show the slightest indifference to the special position in our society the peaceful Muslim demands.
CAIR urges Muslims making pilgrimage to Mecca to file civil rights complaints against airlines
Gates of Vienna has concisely summed up the upshot of the Dem’s electoral victory last month, and the recent Iraq Surrender Group report.
Namely, we of the counter jihad are on our own. Government is not going to help us, not any time soon. And what about the private sector? The media, academia, major corporations, most charitable organizations, are in the hands of the uncaring, the dhimmis, or the Treasonist Left. To put it mildly, these people are not our friends, and they will not help us either.
If anyone will wage the counter jihad, it will be ourselves, as individuals, and no one else.
This is not a time for talking. This is a time for action, and no one is going to act on our behalf. With this salient point in mind, I humbly offer some steps you can undertake right now (hat tip to the commenters at GoV):
- Stop biting your tongue when a friend, family member or colleague starts spouting PC platitudes. Don't be afraid of speaking your mind with composure and firmness. Don't improvise--be articulate and speak from reason, but with emotion.
- Contribute your money or time (preferably both) to the few counterjihad organizations that are already out there. Anti-CAIR and Jihadwatch are good places to start.
- Seek like-minded individuals in your area or neighborhood, and join forces with them.
- Stop supporting establishments that are sympathetic to Islamist extremism (there's a redundancy right there). If you already have, start actively boycotting them and making their lives difficult--all within the laws of civility, of course.
- Conserve gasoline and energy as much as possible. Most fossil fuel energy production is in the hands of our enemies or their allies (Venezuela, Russia, and the entire Middle East). Remember, oil fuels terrorism and Jihad.
- If you do not have any involvement with public or semi-public institutions (schools, city councils, hospital boards, etc.), become involved and speak up. Better yet, get your friends to do so as well.
- Go to the public planning meetings, whenever an Islamic project is the topic, that these projects must go through. Take your like-minded friends to these meetings, and vociferously protest.
- Are you an attorney, or do you know one? Take school boards to court if they capitulate to Muslim pressure. Bog down every application to build mosques, ‘Islamic Centers’, madrassas, etc in the courts.
- Don't employ or work for Muslims, sell or rent property to them.
- Refuse to engage in converstion with any person in Muslim attire, such as a veil, headscarf or hijab.
- Be as hostile as it's possible to be (while staying within the law) to any Muslims or Muslim organizations.
- Boycott any company that caves in to pressure from Muslim groups for any reason whatsoever. And publicize the boycott.
- Improve your marksmanship and weapons-handling skills.
- Report any suspicious activities or behavior to the police immediately, especially if it involves Muslims.
- Be vigilant, protect your family and never think "it won't happen here/it won't happen to me."
I am not advocating anyone to break the law, but there is much free citizens can do, right now, to fight for our civilization and against Islam. There is no more time to waste.

A few words for Avenging Apostate, from Lino in Germany (found in the PI inbox this morning).
"He that loveth ME, he will keep MY WORDS:And MY FATHER will love HIM, and WE will come unto HIM, and make our abode with HIM."St. John 14.24.
"I will ask the FATHER, and HE will give you another HELPER, that HE may be with you forever; that is the SPIRIT OF TRUTH, WHOM the world cannot receive, because it does not see HIM or know HIM, but you know HIM because HE abides with you and will be in you. I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you." St. John 14:18.
Have comprehension for your parents. They are misguided. The devil is smart, but powerless. THE LIVING GOD can transform iron hearts in butter. ;)

This is not a good time for those of us in the counterjihad. If it's not the 'Iraq Surrender Group' being the present-day darlings of the media, it's the Dems meeting up with their allies Hamas (perhaps to swap ideas and tactics, perchance?) Or Hez's ongoing coup attempt in Lebanon, spineless allies overseas, traitors at home, Iran's unstoppable nuclear weapons program...the list is lengthy and none too encouraging, to say the least.
Well, I know about all this, but I refuse to give in to pessimism, or to despair. Counterjihad is the dream that must not and will not die. The dream to live free exists within all of us, even in the brainwashed Muslim masses that march so swiftly (knowingly or otherwise) to their deaths.
Indeed, Islam and jihad is the slavery that will chain the species Homo Sapiens to this planetary speck forever, and doom us to eventual extinction. Only true freedom can give humanity and civilization survival and let us soar to other world, and someday, the stars. These basic truths cannot be denied.
No system of mind and information control is perfect, not even the tyranny of Mohammed.
So, I stay hopeful, no matter how dark our future may seem. And sometimes, I even find other reasons out there to remain optimistic.

Just in case you forgot what happened today 65 years ago. At least that generation, decades ago, had the right idea in mind. No defeatism, no suicidal 'understand and negotiate' with our enemies, no 'how did we bring this on ourselves' crap. Just defeat our enemies, get the job done.
Now, where can I get my 'Avenge 9-11' poster? Oh yeah, that's right. This isn't 1941.

After my recent post on banned books in Malaysia, and seeing the comments that piece generated, I investigated further and snooped around some more bookstore in the Kuala Lumpur area. Turns out what may be a 'banned' book at one store may be freely available at another. I found several titles that were 'banned' at Borders freely available at Kinokuniya, another big bookseller in the downtown KL area.
And if that isn't confusing enough, every Malaysian state has their own banned lists. Books banned in one state may be found in other states. And since Malaysia states are small by American standards, one never has to go far to see if what's forbidden in, say, Johor is available in Selangor.
I have found another listing of banned book titles that is the most comprehensive that I've seen so far. This listing is also now posted in our Malaysian section in the sidebar.
Bottom line, I'll say what few if any Malaysians dare say: censorship sucks, and it's wrong. Period.

Hardliners turn on Ahmadinejad for watching women dancers
Robert Tait in Tehran
Tuesday December 5, 2006
President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad of Iran, who flaunts his ideological fervour, has been accused of undermining Iran's Islamic revolution after television footage appeared to show him watching a female song and dance show.
The famously austere Mr Ahmadinejad has been criticised by his own allies after attending the lavish opening ceremony of the Asian games in Qatar, a sporting competition involving 13,000 athletes from 39 countries. The ceremony featured Indian and Egyptian dancers and female vocalists. Many were not wearing veils.
Women are forbidden to sing and dance before a male audience under Iran's Islamic legal code. Officials are expected to excuse themselves from such engagements when abroad but TV pictures showed Mr Ahmadinejad sitting with President Bashar Assad of Syria and Ismail Haniya, the Palestinian prime minister, during last Friday's ceremony in Doha.
Religious fundamentalists, usually Mr Ahmadinejad's keenest supporters, are asking why he attended a ceremony that violated his own government's strict interpretation of Shia Islam.
The Baztab website, considered close to Mohsen Rezaee, a former revolutionary guard commander with links to powerful sections of Iran's political hierarchy, said Mr Ahmadinejad's presence had offended Shias in Iran and elsewhere (Man, these people are always offended, especially by infidels.). "The failure of Ahmadinejad to object and his constant presence has damaged the image of Iran's Islamic revolution and its commitment to Islamic rules in contrast with the Arab countries in the Gulf," it said.
The president's aides insist he was not present during the singing and dancing. His press secretary, Ali Akbar Javanfekr, claimed Mr Ahmadinejad had left for Doha airport before the performance.
However, Baztab posted footage which purported to show Mr Ahmadinejad in his seat after the show. Jalal Yahyazadeh, a rightwing MP, said: "We have heard from some sources that Ahmadinejad was in the stadium at the time. Those who created the conditions for his presence should be investigated as quickly as possible."
PI is stepping up our game to support the Counter Jihad. We are now helping to raise money to support Robert Spencer's website Jihad Watch.
Just click on our new graphic in our sidebar, the one near the top that reads "DEFEAT JIHAD". Clicking on this graphic will take you to a site that sells bumper stickers and t-shirts, whose proceeds go to support Mr. Spencer's website. If there ever was a cause worth support, this is one.
So, are you an infidel itching to irk the lefties, 'progressives' and other jihadis in your neighborhood? Counter-jihad stuff is now availble! And just in time for Christmas! Buy your Jihad Watch merchandise for not just for your entire family, but for all your friends too! Great stocking stuffers!

PI is proud to add three additional organizations to our counter-jihad lineup.
The first group is the brainchild of the incredibly brave and passionate Brigitte Gabriel (in photo to the left). She is an infidel from Lebanon who grew up in close proximity to Islamic thugs (Hez and the like) who tried to kill her and her family on more than one occasion. Ms. Gabriel has since emigrated to the US, became a citizen of a free country, and now dedicates her time raising awareness of the Islamic threat to our way of life.
Ms. Gabriel has a must-read book, 'Because They Hate' (banned in Malaysia). If you're in Dar-al-Harb, buy the book here. Ms. Gabriel also has a number of videos available (as of today) on YouTube that show some of this remarkable woman's speeches. Have a look at these videos if you can, before our enemies have them yanked down.
Here's Ms. Gabriel's website, American Congress for Truth. Do take a look.
Our second addition to the counter-jihadist groups is Anti-Jihad International, a group I first learned about in a recent email exchange with Steve "Don't Tread On Me" Harkonnen. This is the group that originated the handy Islamic-crescent-with-a-slash-through-it symbol, and is the symbol I stole, er, borrowed some time ago for my own blogger persona. Thanks again, Steve.
The third group is 'The 910 Group'--as in 9-10-2001, the last day that we could have stopped the Islamic atrocity that was about to come to fruition, if we had but known. This group also has a blog thats worth a few minutes of eyeball time.
This is an exciting time, as the forces of the Counter-Jihad are even now marshalling and gathering strength. Courage, friends!

Signage like this is commonplace in Malaysian shopping malls. In fact, I took this photo in a major local mall today.
Question is, not if, but when will similiar signs make their appearance in American malls? Is it already happening now, perhaps?

What an embarassment for England. Mufti Charles is off again to another of his Muslim nations visiting his Muslim brothers. Check out those photos of the Nigerian Emir's court, even has a jester! Hey don't those black Muslims look a lot like the mujahadeen in Sudan, the only difference is they have a stick instead of sword, and are chopping balls. And those captions, why, the writer is positively giddy.

Downtown Kuala Lumpur features what is billed as the world's largest Borders bookstore. This store has quite a nifty selection of titles...but remember, this is Malaysia, which is not a free country. Even the world's supposedly largest Borders has numerous titles that are, shall we say, 'not available'. Censorship is official state policy in Malaysia. Even the list of Officially Banned Books is not publically available.
Recently, I was able to obtain a partial copy of the list of books that are banned in Malaysia (never mind how). Mostly, the list has titles that expose the rotting cesspool that is Islam. It makes for interesting and sobering reading, seeing what the Islamic-Malaysian government is afraid of.

THE TIMES: In just three days on his first visit to a Muslim country, Pope Benedict XVI has transformed himself from a hate figure in Turkey into a model of tolerance and politeness spoken of with warmth and affection.Mark Alexander
He returned to Rome yesterday, winning more praise for a parting shot that he had “left part of his heart in Istanbul”. Turks warm to model of tolerance and finally learn to love the Pope by Richard Owen and Suna Erdem
