In Malaysia, Thou Shalt Not Think

The already lengthy list of banned books in Malaysia is now even longer.

Malaysia Bans 11 Books on Islam
KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia - Malaysia has banned 11 books for allegedly giving a false portrayal of Islam, such as by linking the religion to terrorism and the mistreatment of women, an official said Wednesday.

The government ordered the books -- most of them released by U.S. publishers -- to be blacklisted earlier this month "because they are not in line with what we call the Malaysian version of Islam," said Che Din Yusoh, an official with the Internal Security Ministry's publications control unit.

"Publications control unit"... "Internal Security Ministry" ... "banned books". These phrases of true Islamic-style totalitarian thought control should send shivers of fear and revulsion down the spines of all freedom-loving people, everywhere.
"Some of them ridicule Islam as a religion, or the facts are wrong about Islam, like associating Islam with terrorism ... or saying Islam mistreats women," he said. "Once you mention something which is not correct, it's not proper."

You know it's gotta be true when even mention of such horrible yet undeniable truths are banished. This, my friends, is a classic Islamic response to forthright examination or to any criticism -- ban it or intimidate it out of existence. And if that doesn't shut up the critics of Islam, then you get this.

Expect the banned book list in this country to only get longer in the future.

“The constant emphasis on the Islamic connection to terrorism offends Muslims, undermining the President’s efforts to portray Islam as a ROP..."


“The constant emphasis on the Islamic connection to terrorism offends Muslims, undermining the President’s efforts to portray Islam as a religion of peace,...”

Who said that? Condi Rice? John McCain? Hillary Clinton?

Nope. It was said by none other than Deputy Secretary of Defense Gordon England, uberdhimmi. Give that man five stupidity stars. He deserves them.

Parsing the truth at the Pentagon
By Judi McLeod Tuesday, January 29, 2008



The last word on the mysterious Hesham Islam belongs to boss man number two at the Pentagon, Gordon England—literally.

If you’re curious about the meteoric rise of Hesham Islam, all that is left on the Defense Department website is Gordon England describing Islam as his “personal close confidante”.

Last Friday award-winning journalist Claudia Rosett had her article “Questions for the Pentagon: Who is Hesham Islam?” posted on National Review Online. The article raised pointed questions about some of the stories recounted in a glowing profile, dated Oct. 15, on the Defense Department website, featuring a top Pentagon aide, Hesham Islam.

As quickly as you could say, “cover up”, the Rosett referenced article disappeared from the DoD website by Monday.

As Rosett wrote on her blog, “Today, the entire web page, complete with photo of Islam in his office and lavish praise from his boss, Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England, appears to have simply vanished from the DoD site.

“What was previously a link to the article (click on the second link listed here) is now a link to current news articles (no Hesham Islam), and the profile seems to have disappeared even from the October 15 archives.

When things disappear from the DoD website, they disappear without a trace with not even a telltale wisp of smoke. [The JPG above is a JPG Capture of the Article from Google Cache - the google cache will be purged by the DoD soon I am sure so the Cache link may not work in a short while. I also captured the entire webpage to a word document on my PC. Come and get me DOD!]

Yet, this was an Armed Forces Press Service article which the Pentagon until recently appeared only too happy to publicize as DoD gospel.

Nobody, except England that is, paid much attention to Hesham Islam until Major Stephen Coughlin, the U.S. Department of Defense’s top authority on Islamic war doctrine, was given his walking papers from his job as an intelligence analyst for the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The official reason for Coughlin’s sudden pink slip was for mentioning the connection between Islam and terror.

The same Hesham Islam who has gone AWOL from the DoD website was deemed instrumental in Coughlin’s dismissal.

Not one to stand on ceremony, Coughlin had done his homework and prepared briefings warning that major U.S. Muslim groups were fronting for Muslim terrorist groups. “Hesham Islam is involved with one of these groups—the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA)—which has been named in a major terror funding case. (Free Republic, Jan. 19, 2008).

“In a 333-page report, Coughlin warned that the Quran and other Islamic texts make clear that it is an obligatory requirement for Muslims to wage jihad against non-Muslims and that this requirement is also routinely taught in Saudi schools. Coughlin says this may explain why Saudia Arabia is the largest foreign source of suicide bombers in Iraq.

“In contrast, Deputy Secretary England, who has made a major effort to ingratiate himself with ISNA and other front groups, has characterized Coughlin as “excessively negative”.
Some would argue that England is “excessively sensitive”, at least when it comes to Hesham Islam.

“The constant emphasis on the Islamic connection to terrorism offends Muslims, undermining the President’s efforts to portray Islam as a religion of peace,” England said. “If we can just be more positive about Islam in our words and thoughts, it will have an uplifting effect on our relations with these people.”

England detractors worries about being “uplifted” all the way up to meet their maker in what they would consider the most untimely of fashion.

When the Honorable Gordon R. England made nice at the Arab-American Yearbook Reception in the Library of Congress last February, some people thought the accolades he gushed over Hesham Islam and “My Dear Friend Amir Turki Al Faisal” were, a bit, well excessive.

Praising the Arab leader for reaching out to the American people, England said, “One lesser known, but important fact about his outreach to America is that he is a great fan of Navy Football. He showed it well when he braved one of the coldest days in Philadelphia’s history to watch the annual Navy-Army classic a couple (of) years ago.”

Rosett’s referenced profile of Hesham Islam is not the only item “disappeared” on the DoD website.

A speech on North Korea, delivered last week at the American Enterprise Institute by Jay Kefkowitz, the U.S. special envoy for human rights in North Korea, has gone vamoose.

“In his speech, Lefkowitz broke ranks with the state Department’s charade of progress in disarming Pyongyang, explaining that four years of Six-Party talks on North Korea have been a failure,” Rosett wrote.

UN Poster Boy Maurice Strong, notwithstanding we could add.

Just like Rosett, Lefkowitz was up on Friday, gone by Monday. “They’re down the Memory Hole,” wrote the journalist.
Perhaps the big guns at the Pentagon are leery of Claudia Rosett’s probing questions. After all if it weren’t for her many would still regard the Oil-for-Food tarnished UN as a warm, fuzzy blanket.

Meanwhile, it seems that when the truth is getting too close for comfort, some Pentagon Pooh-bahs simply desert the battlefield.

Death of a 'friend of Malaysia'

The former 'president for life' in Indonesia, the Butcher of Jakarta, the corrupt and brutal Suharto (who in true 'nesian fashion made do with just the one name) is now at last at room temperature.

Here in fair Malaysia, the passing of the tyrant is being noted with sadness, at least officially. Local (government-controlled) media has described the 'nesian dictator's death as the "losing of a great friend of Malaysia" or words to that effect. And contributing to the local caterwauling is Malaysia's own Suharto-wannabe, good ole' Doctor M, is saying thusly:

Another Suharto contemporary, Malaysia's former premier Mahathir Mohamad, hailed him as a "great leader and an international statesman," saying reports he had orchestrated the bloodletting of 1965 were "absolute nonsense".

The 1965 bloodletting that Doc M so vehemently denies on behalf of his peer is a wave of anti-Chinese ethnic cleansing, ordered by Suharto, that cost the lives of between 500,000 and 1 million. Real nice fella, this Suharto bloke, wasn't he?

Of course, Doc M should not forget to deny the Suharto-ordered, unprovoked, and unilateral invasion slash occupation of East Timor in 1975, an event that killed at least 200,000 people. But I digress.

Funny thing how most of Malaysia's best friends turn out to be thugs and tyrants like Hamas of 'Palestine', Mugabe of Zimbabwe, or Cuba's Castro. Great company that Malaysia keeps, isn't it?

But then again, we all know that UMNO-owned Malaysia is not now, nor has it ever been, anything resembling real democracy.

Pucker Up Richard, You're Burnt Toast!


My how the screw has turned. The Canadian Truth Control Commission (aka HRC - Alberta) and its ugly sisters have some explaining to do. It turns out that a queen Richard Warman has been a major little busybody filing complaints and winning judgments with the Thought Control Commissions that he happened to have worked for! In fact, almost every complaint filed had Richard Warman as the complainant! Must be nice to have a Thought Control Commission do your bidding. But wait there's more. Acidqueen Warman sometimes helped create 'hateful' posts to prove that a website was a hate site! Yep, Richard Warman, you are toast, burnt toast. May the people of Canada burn down the Thought Control Commissions and banish Richard Warman to the cold wilderness. Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.


From the investigation by Mark Fournier at Free Dominion, get a load what Warman posted under userids traced back to his computer as he worked to prove there was a 'hating going on' about a black Senator in Canada -

"Time to go back to when the women nigger imports knew their place…
And that place was NOT in public!"


- Richard Warman referring to Sen. Anne Cools -


Is Richard Warman a racist bigot, or was he "just following orders" issued by his masters at the Canadian Human Rights Commission when he posted the headlined message above on a Freedomsite forum on September 5, 2003? Whatever the answer, the same CHRC that has ruled Bible verses to be hate speech doesn't seem to consider these words to be a problem.

But they are a big problem, for both Richard Warman and the CHRC, and the rest of what he wrote only makes matters worse.

“Not only is Canadian Senator Anne Cools is a Negro, she is also an immigrant!
And she is also one helluva preachy c*nt.
She does NOT belong in my Canada. My Anglo-Germanic people were here before
there was a Canada and her kind have jumped in, polluted our race, and forced
their bullshit down our throats.
Time to go back to when the women nigger imports knew their place…
And that place was NOT in public!

Islamic Terror: The Revised Koran

How would an Arab or Muslim feel if the Koran was revised and had the words Jews and Christians removed and in their place the words Arabs and Muslims inserted? Allow me to quote from the Revised Edition of the Koran, which in part would read thusly:

"O believers, make war on the Arabs and Muslims who dwell around you. Let them find firmness in you." (Surah 9, Section 123)

"Fight those Arabs and Muslims who believe not in the God of Jacob even if they be People of the Book until they agree to pay the tribute in recognition of their submissive state." (Surah 9, Section 29)

"You will be called to fight a mighty nation of Arabs and Muslims; fight them until they embrace the God of Jacob." (Surah 48, Section 16)

"Then fight and slay the Arabs and Muslims wherever you find them. And seize them, beleaguer them and lie in wait for them, in every stratagem (of war)." (Surah 9, Section 5)

"Those who believe fight in the cause of the God of Jacob; And those who reject the true faith of the God of Jacob fight in the cause of Evil; So fight ye against the Arabs and Muslims, those Friends of Satan ...." (Surah 4, Section 10, Chapter 76)

"Take not the Arabs and Muslims as friends or protectors." (Surah 5, Section 8, Chapter 51)

"The Arabs and Muslims perverted the things they learned in the Covenant of the God of Jacob." (Surah 3, Section 19, Chapter 187)

"The God of Jacob has turned his face from Arabs and Muslims, and Jews, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists and Atheists should do the same." (Surah 4, Section 7, Chapter 47)

For the last several weeks I have heard all the Arab and Muslim advocacy groups claim how their constituents are among the best Americans. If that is the case, why then do they say nothing about the Koran's advocacy of violence against Jews and Christians? The fact is some Arab Muslims are "true believers" of Islam, and are following the dictates of their religion. Perhaps now is the time for Islamic clerics in America to stop spreading hatred and calls for war against Jews and Christians. Edit the Koran and make amends with the Jews and Christians.

The Long Version of the Fox News Interview with Geert Wilders


I don't know if you have seen this, but this is the really long interview with Geert Wilders about his upcoming movie. Greg Palkot is the Fox News interviewer. It's on the PVV site. While there, why don't you click on contact and give a big thank you to PVV and Geert.

Scroll down to get to the interview. It's 16 minutes long and shows how well he sees the reality today. I guess Geert insisted on getting the full unedited video vile. Good for him because you would never see all of it except on the internet.

Saudi Arabia: The Horrors of Life Under the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice

ARAB NEWS: It has unfortunately become a regular headline in our newspapers. We learn of people beaten up by members of the Commission for the Promotion of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice — for short, the commission. The details of the beatings and the reasons for them can be dealt with later but the outstanding fact that strikes us is that people were assaulted with a severity that lands them in hospitals and, in two reported cases, killed those who were assaulted.

The latest of these reports concerns a boy from Najran who was attacked by the commission. Allegedly — and I am quoting from the newspaper report, the boy “confronted the men over a violation supposedly committed by his brother.” In other words, he was not the target; he was simply defending his brother. According to the boy, four members of the commission “insulted him and banged his head against a car until he became unconscious.” Denial Is No Defence >>> By Abeer Mishkhas

Wilders Warned He May Have to Leave

DUTCH NEWS: MP Geert Wilders has been told he may have to leave the Netherlands temporarily when his short firm over the Koran is completed, the anti-Islam campaigner says in an article he has written in Wednesday's Volkskrant.

Wilders says the warning came from the government's terrorism tzar Tjibbe Joustra.

The film was due to be ready for screening at the end of this month but has been delayed for several weeks, says Wilders. [Source: Wilders warned he may have to leave]

This is the comment I have left with the newspaper. It will be interesting to see if it gets published. Is freedom of speech still alive and kicking?
Geert Wilders is a courageous politician in a sea of craven fools!

What he is stating is so obviously correct; yet most of the other Dutch politicians are afraid of telling the people that he is right.

A politician is a public servant: He is elected into office in order to serve the best interests of the people. He believes - rightly in my view - that the Netherlands and Europe is under threat from Islam. It is therefore his duty to inform the vast majority of people who have far less understanding of the problem than he.

As has been written in the UK's 'Daily Telegraph', Holland is governed by people who are fearful of Islam. It would have been more accurate to have stated that ALL Western nations are being governed by people who are fearful of Islam! For all Western governments surely are.

I applaud the courage of Geert Wilders! We need more politicians like him. Would that there were many, many more. Then, perhaps, the West would have a better chance of survival. - ©Mark

Will America Give Geert Wilders Sanctuary?

Geert Wilders film about the Koran and Islam will be released any day. Holland's government has told Geert that they may not be able to protect him from the Muslim barbarians and are urging him to leave the Netherlands. Will America give him sanctuary? As you recall, when Khomeini took over Iran, Carter refused to give sanctuary to the Shah. Will Dhimmi Bush act the same way? Geert can come and stay with me. I'm sure we would have lots of fun mocking Islam and causing the Muslims to go into a fit of hysteria. Can he stay with you?

An Action Plan to save the West

By Zenster

This piece was posted at a comment thread at Belmont Club on an article regarding the potential use of nuclear weapons against Jihadist forces, and is reproduced here in part:

I have long opposed any first use of nuclear weapons in the war against Islam. Recent events in Iran and Pakistan have begun to erode that opposition. Ahmadinejad’s irrational obsession with hastening the 12th imam’s arrival represents far too great a threat to be ignored. The same goes for Pakistan's radicals getting anywhere near a nuclear device.

While I agree that the notion of broaching first-use as a viable deterrent is pathetic at best, at least there is some forward motion in examining large-scale measures against global jihad. Conducting limited theater mop-ups of Islamic aggression does nothing to address the bigger issue of Islam’s supremacist doctrine. What follows is a treatment I posted at another forum about the various forms of a functional deterrent to terrorism. Please comment as you see fit. This NATO paper is some sort of attempt to begin considering exactly what it will take to bring Islam into line. I can only note how NATO’s approach only hastens the advent of a Muslim holocaust. This catastrophe something that I continue to predict and little has presented itself to counter such a notion. Our only hope of averting such a horrendous outcome is to find a functional deterrent.

I have been working on this idea for a long time. While an extremely difficult concept in practice, I feel it is something that needs to be addressed. Far too much of current counter-terrorist policy is dedicated to stalling, appeasement, police action or stopgap military strategies that are ineffective at best. Nor do these measures address the overarching issue of how nuclear proliferation has foreshortened our schedule of response. Recent instability in nuclear-armed Pakistan has only highlighted this reduced timeframe.

NOTE: All of the following tactics are mentioned with the explicit intent of reducing the overall loss of human life. Irresponsible recommendations to "nuke 'em all" or variations thereof are unwelcome. That said, this admonition should not be construed as dismissing limited engagements like those used in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Most military historians have finally conceded that the World War II nuclear attacks saved Japanese lives. The exceptionally violent nature of Islam makes it irresponsible to exclude from consideration similar "limited use" scenarios.

To continue: Here is a list of the major goals that functional deterrence should achieve. Any given approach need not succeed at enacting all of these features in order to qualify. Append this roster as you see fit and repost it if I have omitted any significant elements.

Stopping major terrorist atrocities: This should always be the primary focus of deterrence. It may not be possible to halt or adequately deter low-level jihad in places such as Thailand but attacks such as the 9-11 atrocity, Beslan, Madrid, Bali and London should come to an end or be met with distinct penalties.

Attaching a heavy price tag to further attacks: Be it through disproportionate retaliation, appropriation of assets or denial of access to worship, Islam must begin to experience reciprocal predation, discomfort or deprivation for its continued assaults upon the West.

Encouraging or coercing Muslims to self-police: Deterrence should possess sufficient dissuasive power whereby Muslim populations take it upon themselves to dismantle jihadi terror networks within their own sphere. Whether through outright fear or more subtle methods of penalty and reward, Islam must be made to clean its own house. Due to language or cultural barriers, the West is ill suited to such a job. What’s more, we have absolutely no obligation to perform such a rigorous and time-consuming task. Muslims know best who is and who is not participating in jihad. Let them taste the fruits of having embraced taqiyya as they attempt to winnow out the terrorists from their own midst.

Actively eroding support for jihadism: Although similar to the foregoing item we also need to address methods that reduce the glamour and attraction of participating in terrorist activity. Propaganda methods involving ridicule, humiliation, shame or condemnation and fear are one path. Collective punishment, especially within terrorist family networks, is another. Comprehensive biometric tracking of known and suspected jihadis could be yet another.

Support for or mandate to reform Islam: I include this option for the dreamers and optimists. There is little evidence to date that Islam can be rehabilitated into a peaceful entity. All indications are that it already has reformed into a more violent and intolerant version of itself when compared to its state some 50-100 years ago.

Some potential measures to consider on an individual basis or in combination:

Targeted Assassinations:

One exceptionally economical way of deterring people from engaging in terrorism is to make sure that they die for doing so. The problem of recidivism no longer remains an issue. Obviously, we cannot pursue every last jihadi on earth. That has already been addressed with respect to Islam cleaning its own house. Still, it would set a powerful example if the top tiers of jihad’s commanders, financiers, indoctrinators and scholars all began to experience severe physical attrition. The high context nature of Muslim culture both encourages and rewards people for being indispensable. To eliminate such irreplaceable elements of terrorism’s network structure will weaken it significantly. Doing so might possibly allow for other methods—less likely to work on their own—to realize some measure of success.

More than anything, it would represent major progress if jihadi leadership no longer felt comfortable making personal appearances before large assemblies or maintaining a conspicuous public presence of any sort. Again, in high context cultures this diminishes personal power in the very strongest sense. Without going into why Western governments are so loath to implement such a program, suffice to say that is would be very inexpensive when compared to our current rate of monetary expenditure in fighting Global Terrorism.

Propaganda — A Cautionary Tale:

Islamic terrorists continue to agitate for the use of nuclear weapons against the far better armed West. Muslim populations need to be informed of how exceptionally dangerous such a notion is. Making them aware of this would involve creating a really well produced Middle East version of "The Day After Tomorrow". Not the more recent global warming movie but that 1980s American video about the aftermath of a nuclear war. The program should show retaliation for a nuclear terrorist attack on a major American city. Explicit recreations should portray Cairo, Islamabad, Tehran, Riyadh and Damascus all vaporizing in nuclear explosions. Extremely vivid and graphic detail should be used to demonstrate just how devastating and gruesome such a response would be. Accurate recreations of firestorms, burning cement, boiling lakes and disintegrating buildings should all be included. The footage would also show easily recognized landmarks within each metropolis being destroyed along with its more affluent neighborhoods.

Subsequent footage should document the immense human suffering from radiation poisoning, exposure, starvation and epidemics that would sweep the affected areas. All of this should be burned onto millions of DVDs with sub-tracks in Arabic, Farsi, Pashto, Hindi and so forth. These would then be airdropped over the entire Arab Middle East and made to coincide with peak viewing cycles during Ramadan. To enhance public notice of this, airings of the video would also be electronically piggybacked onto al Jazeera, al Manar and other Arab state television broadcast channels. This would guarantee a splash of publicity and assure follow up viewing of the airdropped DVDs.

I can think of few other ways for America to clearly communicate the incredibly perilous position Muslims are being placed in by their jihadi co-religionists. Whether they agree with them or not is entirely of zero consequence. Islam is currently headed directly towards such an outcome and if there is some way of inspiring Muslims to begin reforming Islam or killing off their jihadist clergy and followers then this catastrophe might be averted.

Taking The Shrines as Hostages:

Through unilateral or coalition military action the shrines at Mecca and Medina are taken and held hostage against future terrorist attacks. Somehow, we need to reach out and touch over ONE BILLION Muslims. The haj (pilgrimage), is annually attended by over one million Muslims. For many, it is a once-in-a-lifetime event that may well involve the most costly financial outlay they ever make. Missing such an opportunity due to terrorist atrocities might well cause individuals who are denied the haj to rethink their support of jihad. Once the shrines are captured, a span of thirteen months must pass without a single major terrorist atrocity before the haj can resume.

The shrines would be surrounded by a no-man’s land of minefields covered by computer controlled automatic weapons fire directed by night vision systems. If anything, the captured shines would also serve as the ultimate “flypaper” in how they would attract the most fanatical jihadis thereby distracting them from attacking other Western targets. Additionally, all attendees of the haj would have to undergo comprehensive biometric analysis in order to participate. The database assembled would provide a powerful tool in profiling terrorist families and groups.

Holding these shrines as physical hostages would also serve another purpose. Should there be a chemical or biological attack on a Western city, Medina would be contaminated with a similar agent. A second one would result in Mecca being contaminated as well. This is a significant deterrent as cleaning up either site would cost untold BILLIONS of dollars. In the case of a nuclear terrorist attack, first Medina and then Mecca would be obliterated.

Food Embargo:

Water Poverty is endemic throughout the MME (Muslim Middle East). As populations grow, increasing amounts of water previously used for agricultural purposes are diverted into municipal drinking supplies. Deep aquifers are being pumped out at unsustainable rates and corrupt Arab governments are not willing to expend the massive amounts of money required to build expensive desalination plants or the nuclear reactors needed to power them.

One ton of grain requires ONE THOUSAND tons of water to grow. The average human diet consumes one third of a ton of grain per year, requiring over 300 tons of water. A Western diet rich in livestock can see that number rise to 800 tons of water needed to sustain such intake. Iran recently overtook Japan as the world’s largest grain importer. The MENA (Middle East North Africa) region ranks as the fastest growing market for imported grain. The water needed to accommodate this region’s combined consumption requires a volume roughly equivalent to the entire annual flow of the NILE RIVER. Bringing in foreign grain is just another way of importing water.

An immediate halt to exports of grain by America, Canada and Australia to the MME would bring about mass starvation in a matter of months, if not weeks. It borders on the ludicrous to consider how Islam continues antagonizing the West even as it is helplessly dependent upon it for their daily bread. An embargo of food shipments is one strategy that Russia and China—both major food importers—could not possibly triangulate against. One or two terrorist nuclear atrocities against the West could easily help it overcome any moral compunction about halting food shipments. No amount of money or any other lever could make the needed food magically appear. Even an oil embargo would not impact the West soon enough to counter the almost immediate onset of starvation.

Appropriation of Assets:

The 9-11 atrocity easily cost America on the order of ONE TRILLION dollars. A vast majority of the hijackers involved came from Saudi Arabia and were indoctrinated by Saudi Wahhabists. The USA would be well within its rights to appropriate the Ghawar Oilfield as compensation for this attack. Similarly, confiscation of other MME petroleum sources could serve as a form of retaliation against future attacks. Deprived of massive petrodollar wealth, the building of mosques and furnishing of weapons or money to terrorist organizations would come to a screeching halt.

Massively Disproportionate Retaliation:

For each new terrorist atrocity a major MME city ceases to exist. To date, Islam has not even begun to feel the West’s pain. World War II saw the firebombing of Tokyo and Dresden as direct retaliation for military aggression. At present, reluctance to identify Islam itself as an actual military foe is one of the only things inhibiting recognition of disproportionate retaliation as a useful tool. Again, a few more atrocities may change all that.

One way or the other, Muslims must be made to quake in fear with the announcement of each new terrorist attack. Uncertainty—a favorite tool of the jihadists—must be turned against Islam until homeless outraged Muslims scurry down to the local mosque and slit the jihadi imam’s throat. This is the self-policing that is currently absent and so badly needed.

Another form of massively disproportionate retaliation involves issuing a proclamation that even one single terrorist nuclear attack upon the West will result in rogue regimes like Iran, Pakistan, North Korea and Syria all undergoing nuclear bombardment. This might inspire such terrorist havens to begin reversing the damage they have done.

Reverse Immigration and Containment:

The deportation of all Muslim immigrants back to their countries of origin may well prove necessary. Taqiyya makes it impossible to trust the followers of Islam. Much like World War II, Muslim citizens may need to be placed in internment camps if they refuse repatriation to their countries of origin. Like Mexico, Islam continues to export excess population that might otherwise agitate for change. The West needs to reassemble Islam’s diaspora and make Islamic nations confront their own shortcomings. With populations returned to their true levels, water poverty would loom even larger as a threat against further terrorist atrocities.

Outright Demolition of the Shrines:

This is an extreme measure suggested by someone else I know that is aimed at crushing Islamic morale by demonstrating the fallibility of Allah. I include it for the sake of discussion.

In closing I will ask that you please post your own reactions to the various measures I have listed. I do not pretend that my list is comprehensive nor do I advocate their immediate use, save only for the targeted assassinations. However gruesome or morally objectionable any of them might be, we are confronted by an enemy who would not flinch to simultaneously inflict all of them upon the West if it was within their power to do so.

This is the one motivating factor that drives me to examine such ideas. All options must be kept open if we are to have any hope of deterring Islam much less defeating it. Far more likely is that one or more of these measures will need to be used before this conflict concludes. I believe it is vital that the West begins to understand the potential dimensions of what may be required to survive. None of this is pretty but—then again—neither is the prospect of life under shari’a law.

Malaysia supports Hamas (again)

This should not be new to anyone that's in the know about Muslim-owned or influenced media, or anyone that's been perusing PI's pages for more than five minutes. But I'm going to post about it nonetheless.

In the most recent round of combat between Israel and their Palestinian Arab enemies - which as usual includes information and psych war in the world's media - Malaysia's government-backed media is of course siding with their co-religionists of Hamas.

This headline was published in the major Kuala Lumpur daily New Straits Times (NST) last Sunday - 'Israeli Atrocities Continue' - complete with a typical pallywood pic of a child that is all but guaranteed to pull your heartstrings (I am not about to post the pic here, so follow the link if you are morbidly curious). And of course the propaganda shot NST selected for the piece should make you, dear reader, hate the hated Zionists all the more...which is precisely what the UMNO (Dis)Information Overlords and their jihadist brethren have in mind.

Sorry, there is no online link available to the article.

The NST piece is a selection of cherry-picked pro-pally comments from the usual suspects, such as the UN and other lefty NGOs. Not a word is printed from the poor hapless zionist civilians who are being bombarded by mortar and rocket fire in their homes and neighborhoods on a daily basis. As far as the Malaysia government is concerned, the constant Hamas/Fatah attacks on Israelis (both military and civilian) is merely 'legitimate resistance', while Israeli presence on their own soil is a war crime, as are any attempts of the Israelis to defend themselves are also 'war crimes'. This big lie, repeated over and over so enthusiastically by the jihad journalists of NST, still has surprising amounts of traction here in Dar al Islam.

Of course, you'd expect to find a headline like this in the editorial section, but this doozy of a headliner is being reported, straight-faced, as a NEWS item. You see, here in the fair Melayu Islamic State, there is not even a pretense of neutrality or 'non-bias' when it comes to news reporting. The pro-terror and pro-jihad tilt of the Malaysian government media could not be more obvious.

And don't count on that changing anytime soon.

Flight or fight, is Europe lost?

By Rachel Raskin-Zrihen

I've been reading a lot lately about what appears to be an exodus from Europe by non-Muslims.

They seem to be fleeing in the face of increasing adamance from Europe's growing Muslim population that the nations of Europe submit to the fundamentalist Islamic will.

That the non-Muslims are leaving tells me they don't wish to become Muslim or live under Islamic rule. But it also tells me that there's a pervasive unwillingness to stand up for their right to live as they choose over there. And that wasn't always the case.

No matter what blame some national leaders place on themselves for their Muslim immigrants not having assimilated, the population knows better. They know the Muslims have no desire to become European. They want Europe to become Muslim.

That's the plan, and it's working.

The most frightening and tragic part of what is fast becoming a terrible and possibly irreparable situation, is witnessing Western civilization slink away with its proverbial tail between its legs.

In World Wars I and II, Europeans fought. They joined armies. And even when their governments fell, they joined partisan groups to combat what they knew was evil. They didn't just lie down or flee.

I think that the United States' willingness and insistence upon acting as Europe's protector and sponsor since the end of World War II has leached the spirit out of the populace. They've become lazy and complacent, and unable to get sufficiently indignant over the rape of their culture by "the other."

The Islamic enemy is using an interesting and unusual arsenal of weapons to defeat the West, most of it involving using the West's own freedoms against it, and helping the weight of its own guilt tip the scales in their favor.

Those hoping to see the black cloud of Islam overtake the planet are not above using the specter of the Holocaust to keep their detractors at bay. They draw analogies between what happened to the Jews - the kinds of things anti-Semites said about Jews - and anything negative said or any actions taken to slow the spread of Islam.

The irony of this is breathtaking, of course, since the first thing the Islamo-fascist will do once they've taken control, will be to massacre the world's Jews, and everybody knows it.

That will not be the last thing they do, however, and anyone in the still-free world who doesn't relish the mental image of living under Sharia law in Belgium, Berlin, Boston or Bakersfield, had better wake up and smell the falafel.

The problem, of course, is that the malady is so massive, and the options so distasteful, that most just ignore it and hope it will go away.

It won't.

What's needed is a several-pronged approach, all engaged simultaneously.

We need an alternative energy source, the development of which needs to begin yesterday. Once oil is unnecessary, the money stops flowing and the terrorist funding dries up. As alternative fuel development is accelerated, immigration to the West from Muslim countries must cease completely, and Muslims already in western countries must be removed, at least temporarily, to their nations of origin.

This contains the problem to a wide but definable geographic location.

As it stands now, the infection is within the host and the only way to cure it would be to kill or severely damage the body.

And a way must be devised to weed out intransigent and intolerant Muslims wishing to come to the west to do us harm from those genuinely seeking a better life by coming west and westernizing.

Now, I'm sure I'll get death threats for making these suggestions, but that's a symptom of the problem, isn't it?

Cuckoo Sarkozy



You may ask why does John keep picking on Sarkozy? He made me! Everything I had hoped about Sarkozy - somewhat understood Islam, viewed EU as a threat, viewed Turkey as a threat. Boy was I wrong. There he is shoving the Eurabia Treaty down the Frenchies throat - no vote for you! - and toning down his 'no Turkey in the EU' rhetoric, and then this week in Saudi Arabia,

From Brussels Journal - President Sarkozy said:

Fourteen centuries ago, from this place, went forth the great élan of piety, fervor, and faith that would carry off everything it met, that would convert so many peoples and bring about the birth of one of the greatest, most beautiful civilizations that the world has ever known. Here in Saudi Arabia are the holiest sites of Islam, towards which every Muslim in the world turns to pray. […] The West received the Greek heritage thanks to the Muslim civilization. […]

No doubt, Muslims, Jews and Christians do not believe in God in the same manner. No doubt, they do no have the same way of venerating God, of praying, of serving him; but, at bottom, who could deny that it is the same God to whom they address their prayers?


Mo is the Elan of piety birthing the greatest civization? Same God? Even though it is terrible and described as 'stupefying' by Bernard Anthony, it is good to know that Sarkozy is just as stupid as Bush. Knowledge of Islam makes you a very good citizen - you can spot a doofus when he opens his mouth and talks about Islam. So now we know. Real disappointing but the confusion whether Sarkozy knew what he was doing is over. He doesn't.

Grand Mufti of Syria Threatens Europeans at EU Parliament, EU Media Silent

Photobucket

THE BRUSSELS JOURNAL: This information was brought to my attention by the blog Snaphanen. As a part of the deliberate merger of Europe and the Islamic world that is the policy of the European Union at the highest levels, yet almost never debated in European media, 2008 will be a "Year of Intercultural Dialogue," which means that Europeans will be bombarded with propaganda about how good it will be to submit to Islamic rule, and some veiled threats about what happens if we don't. The visiting Grand Mufti of Syria threatened Europeans over the "misuse" of free speech to criticize Islam. This has been carefully left out of the official EU reports from his speech at the EU Parliament.

One of the EU Commissioners, or unelected pan-European Ministers, addressed the European press a while ago, hoping that they would participate in this brainwashing of the public. Not in those exact words, of course, but the journalists got the message, and disturbingly enough didn't seem to protest. This is the hallmark of a totalitarian state, where the authorities instruct the press on what to write and which ideologies to broadcast. That is what the EUSSR is rapidly becoming, as former Soviet dissident Vladimir Bukovsky has warned.

Perhaps the most shameful aspect of the history of Eurabia is how the supposedly critical media has allowed itself to be corrupted or deceived by the Eurabians. Most of the documents about the Euro-Arab Dialogue place particular emphasis on working with the media, and the Eurabians have played the European media like a Stradivarius. A conference on "Racism, Xenophobia and the Media" in Vienna in May 2006 was coordinated by the EU. By the end of 2006, the network of media practitioners involved in the Euro-Arab Dialogue had grown to over 500 (pdf). These included people, media and organizations from all 37 countries of the Euro-Mediterranean partnership. European and Arab journalists produced dozens of recommendations on how to enhance their cooperation and promote "mutual understanding" between their cultures and religions in the media.

Benita Ferrero-Waldner, European Commissioner for External Relations and European Neighbourhood Policy (read: Eurabian affairs), addressed the assembly of journalists. According to her, "we do not believe the media should be regulated from outside, but rather that you find ways to regulate yourselves. [...] 2008 is the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue, and I am determined that by then we will have made significant improvements in the level of mutual respect and understanding our communities have for one another. In the months and years to come we must reach beyond the elites to the man and woman on the street. That is a vital part of the fight against racism and xenophobia. And you will be the key to achieving that."

This document is available on the Internet, but I doubt most Europeans have heard about it. Ferrero-Waldner also stated that "Freedom of expression is not the freedom to insult or offend. Hate speech is always abhorrent." The EU has in numerous agreements with Muslim countries made it clear that "Islamophobia" is a form of racism and hate speech.

The EU is now practicing this media censorship. According to Dutch blogger Klein Verzet, the Grand Mufti of Syria threatened Holland: "Should it come to riots, bloodshed and violence after broadcasting the Quran movie by PVV-leader Geert Wilders, then Wilders will be responsible. This was said by the Grand Mufti of Syria, Ahmad Badr Al-Din Hassoun, Tuesday in the European Parliament, where he gave a speech at the invitation of the fraction presidents. If Wilders tears up or burn a Quran in his film 'this will simply mean he is inciting wars and bloodshed. And he will be responsible', according to the Grand Mufti. Al Hassoun thinks it is 'the responsibility of the Dutch people to stop Wilders'."

If you read the official texts by the EU media, this threat has been totally removed. Euractiv.com, a website subsidized by the EU, reports today:

No 'conflict of cultures', Islamic leader tells EU Parliament

The Grand Mufti of Syria yesterday told MEPs that he did not believe in the conflict of cultures because "we are all building one culture", becoming the first religious leader to address the Parliament during the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue. A series of eminent religious and cultural leaders are set to address the plenary session of the European Parliament on the subject of intercultural dialogue throughout 2008. The Grand Mufti of Syria, Ahmad Badr Al-Din Hassoun, yesterday (15 January) told Parliament's Strasbourg plenary that perceived clashes of culture were instead conflicts of "ignorance, terrorism and backwardness".

I summon my blue-eyed slaves...



"I summon my blue-eyed slaves anytime it pleases me. I command the Americans to send me their bravest soldiers to die for me. Anytime I clap my hands a stupid genie called the American ambassador appears to do my bidding. When the Americans die in my service their bodies are frozen in metal boxes by the US Embassy and American airplanes carry them away, as if they never existed. Truly, America is my favorite slave."

She's No Dhimmi


Susanne Winter, blunt talker for the Freedom Party Austria, takes her Islam straight. What, another European speaking her mind? Of course, they are going after her 'hate speech' just like the TCCa is going after Ezra Levant. The West is truly upside down.

Austrian authorities investigate Islam-bashing by rightist lawmaker

Jan 14, 2008, 11:59 GMT


Vienna - Remarks by a right-wing politician denouncing Islam and accusing the Prophet Mohammed of having been a paedophile provoked widespread outrage in Austria on Monday, with authorities investigating whether they constituted hate speech.

Susanne Winter, a candidate for the Freedom Party in local elections in Graz in south-eastern Austria, said on Sunday that Mohammed's marriage to a 6-year-old girl would make the prophet a 'paedophile in today's system.'

Speaking at a rally, Winter demanded that Islam should be 'thrown back where it came from, beyond the Mediterranean Sea.'

Winter later justified her attacks. 'There is widespread child abuse by Muslim men,' she was quoted as saying by the newspaper Oesterreich.

'Why can't I say this? That has nothing to do with hate speech. We want neither Austrian nor foreign paedophiles. I did not want to incite hatred, or offend a religious community,' she said.

Austria's authorities were investigating whether Winter's remarks constituted incitement to hatred, a spokesman from the prosecutor's office said. If found guilty, Winter could face up to two years in prison.

Politicians from all other factions sharply denounced Winter's remarks and called for her resignation.

Muslim representatives in Austria criticized the remarks. Omar al- Rawi, a spokesman for Austria's Muslim community, slammed the lack of respect shown by the right-wing politician.

Attacks against Islam had reached a level that 'made one's stomach turn,' al-Rawi said.

Graz will elect a local government on January 20. In the 2006 general elections the Freedom Party received 13 per cent of the vote.

The affair is reminiscent of the controversy over cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed, published in a Danish newspaper in September 2005 that later caused international protests, resulting in a number of deaths.

January 14, 2008 CAMPAIGNS OF INTOLERANCE
Austrian Politician Calls Prophet Muhammad a 'Child Molester'
A candidate campaigning for the Graz city council in Austria says it is time that Islam was "thrown back ... behind the Mediterranean," and alleges Muhammad wrote the Koran in "epileptic fits."


DPA
Susanne Winter, campaigning for the Graz city council, called the Prophet Muhammad a child molester.
Election campaigns, it would seem, are uncomfortable times for immigrants to be in Europe. First, it was Ronald Koch, the conservative politician in the German state of Hesse who turned up the rhetoric and began railing against "criminal young foreigners" in his country. Now, an Austrian politician has followed suit.

Susanne Winter, a right-wing politician with the FPÖ party running for a city council seat in the city of Graz, blasted Muslims on Sunday, saying that "in today's system" the Prophet Muhammad would be considered a "child molester," apparently referring to his marriage to a six-year-old child. She also said that it is time for Islam to be "thrown back where it came from, behind the Mediterranean." Not yet finished, she also claimed that Muhammad wrote the Koran in "epileptic fits."

In an interview with the daily Österreich published on Monday, Winter continued the onslaught saying that child abuse is "widespread" among Muslim men and that Graz is facing a "tsunami of Muslim immigration." In 20 or 30 years, she warned, half of Austria's population would be Muslim.

Her comments have resulted in a storm of protest in Austria, with politicians and commentators of all stripes taking Winter and her party to task. Austrian prosecutors are also looking into the possibility of filing charges against the 50-year-old politician for incitement.

Her comments, said Omar Al-Rawi, head of integration for an Austrian association of Muslims, showed "a lack of respect" and they "had no basis in fact." He told the Süddeutsche Zeitung that such Islam bashing has reached a point in Austria that "one wants to puke."

But despite the strong reaction generated by Winter, such rhetoric is hardly foreign to political campaigns in Austria. Her party was brought to international prominence by Jörg Haider, the notoriously right-leaning politician who found success in the 1990s and earlier this decade with a mixture of xenophobia and nationalism. He has since moved on, but his rhetoric has remained the same. Campaigning recently for his new group, the Association for Austria's Future (BZÖ), he said, "We are still allowed to say Gruss Gott," -- the traditional Austrian greeting -- "and don't have to praise Allah."


A Winter campaign poster: "Don't give radical Islam a home."

Winter's comments are also reminiscent of controversial remarks made recently by Roland Koch in his campaign to be re-elected as the governor of the western German state of Hesse. Following a brutal pre-Christmas attack by two youths -- one German born with Turkish parents and the other an immigrant from Greece -- against a pensioner in a Munich subway, Koch has turned youth crime, particularly that perpetrated by those with foreign backgrounds, into his No. 1 campaign issue. Among other questionable comments, he said it must be clear that the slaughtering (of animals) in the kitchen ... runs counter to our principles."

The Religion of Beheadings

From CNN... any emphasis below is from yours truly, not the MSM

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia (AP) -- Saudi authorities on Saturday beheaded an Indonesian maid convicted of killing her employer, the Interior Ministry announced.

In a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency, the ministry said the maid used a pillow to suffocate her employer Aisha Al Makhaled and then stole her jewelry in the southern province of Asir.

Saudi Arabia follows a strict interpretation of Islam under which those convicted of murder, drug trafficking, rape and armed robbery are executed in public with a sword.

The maid is the second person to be executed this year in the desert kingdom, according to an Associated Press count.

Saudi Arabia beheaded 137 people last year, up sharply from the 38 in 2006.

Slicing and Dicing the TCC: HRC Alberta vs Ezra Levant



Not only are the kangaroo court 'human rights commissions' of various Canadian cities and provinces going after Steyn - he's the really big fish -, they also are going all out for Ezra Levant. These Thought Control Commissions (TCC) have become evil tools in the hands of leftists and Muslims. What did Ezra do!? His magazine published the Danish cartoons - lions, and tigers and bears! oh my! Check out Ezra's blog to see all of the clips and his commentary. He insisted on videotaping and refused to keep it confidential as the TCC wanted. Now why would a commission so concerned about rights want to censor the public knoweldge of their process? Very enlightening.

Let me just say it feels so good to see the Human Rights Commission of Alberta (TCCa) get its just desserts. Ezra Levant has turned this kangaroo court upside down. You have got to see his opening speech and then the first question 'what was your intent?' and his answer. Ezra promises plenty more videos as he has 90 minutes to upload to youtube.

Bush Dumps King! Makes Out With Emir



You know what they say, 'in with the new, out with the old.'








Bush visits Gulf with peace plan

The emir of Kuwait said he was "delighted" to see Mr Bush
US President George W Bush has arrived in Kuwait as part of a tour of Gulf states that is likely to focus on Mid-East peace and containing Iran.
After rounding off his first trip as president to Israel and the West Bank, he arrived in Kuwait City for talks with the Emir, Sheikh Sabah.

He will also address some of the 15,000 US soldiers based in Kuwait, and meet the commander of the US forces in Iraq.

He will continue to Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

His aim is to encourage them to back Mahmoud Abbas as the Palestinian president negotiates with the Israelis.

This is phase two of what many regard as Mission Impossible, the BBC's Matthew Price reports from Kuwait City.

There's a good chance for peace and I want to help you

Mr Bush hopes to encourage states like Kuwait to start a process of reaching out to Israel but even before the president landed, Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice was telling journalists not to expect any breakthrough.

Absurdity of Bush In The West Bank - Coup de Grace

OK, Here's Bush's world. "What am I going to have as a legacy?" Iraq? loser. War on Terror? You can't even name the enemy or even comprehend Islam. Amnesty? "I'll see you at the signing!" Lesser Jihad Against Israel? Whose side are you on?

It is not so absurd that Bush is probably spending close to a $100,000,000 on his photo-op excursion to the West Bank, but this protection is needed for him to fight FOR the Palestinians to get their state, contiguous no less, and propose COMPENSATION for the Palestinians who won't be allowed to return to Israel. Oh and WE get to pay for it! Searching for a legacy...oh he will get his legacy, his final judgment in the history of America if we ever recover from the absurdity of Bush.

Bush’s 1,500-strong Secret Service unit occupies Palestinian government center in Ramallah for his first visit

The US Secret Service virtually took over the Palestinian Authority’s seat of government in Ramallah, enforcing unheard-of security measures for President George W. Bush’s talks with Mahmoud Abbas and PM Salam Fayyad Thursday, Jan. 10. Compared with US-Israeli security cooperation for the president’s first day in Israel, the US force cut Palestinian security officials out of the loop. Armed with an amazing arsenal of hardware and electronics, they cordoned the Ramallah government center off with a one-kilometer deep “sterile zone” - closed even to the Palestinian presidential guard and the media, except for a pool. Abbas’ office furniture was replaced with American products.

US officers barred entry to the Palestinian government center except for persons appearing on their list, albeit minus bodyguards. Only Abbas and Fayyad will be allowed small personal contingents of listed guards.

Top-secret security measures were also enforced in Bethlehem ahead of the president’s visit to the Church of the Nativity.

The US president politely refused Abbas’ personal request to lay a wreath at Yasser Arafat’s Ramallah mausoleum because of his timetable.

Our military sources report that arrangements are in place on the West Bank to whisk the president out of harm’s way at zero notice if necessary.

A security official told DEBKAfile: “This is Hamas’ and Jihad Islami’s big chance to get at a top American target and demonstrate their clout on the West Bank too. They are not alone. At least one faction of Abbas’ Fatah has also threatened the visit.”

PI's own Mark Alexander has a fairly new website up, and it's called "The Shrewd Economist." This site, which focuses on financial and economic matters, is worth reading, so head on over there for a look. And yes, The Shrewd Economist takes on Islam. Islam, with trillions in oil money, is gaining clout in the world economic system and is not afraid to use it to further Islamic/Islamist goals. We underestimate the power of the Financial Jihad at our own peril.

Lawyer "Shocked and Distressed" by Magistrate's "Insensitivity and Unacceptable" Treatment of a 'Beniqabbed' Muslimah

For Refusing to Deal with the Case, the Magistrate is to Be Reprimanded and Given ‘Sensitivity Training’!

BBC: A magistrate has been reprimanded for refusing to deal with the case of a Muslim woman because she was wearing a veil covering her face.

Ian Murray walked out of court when Zoobia Hussain, 32, first appeared at Manchester Magistrates' Court in June.

Ms Hussain, from Crumpsall, who was accused of criminal damage, was wearing a veil covering her entire face.

The Office of Judicial Complaints said Mr Murray had been given a formal reprimand and further training.

He left the hearing without explaining why, but said later he felt the way Ms Hussain was dressed, in a niqab, raised identity issues.

The mother-of-five's lawyer, Judith Hawkins, said she was "shocked and distressed" by Mr Murray's "insensitive and unacceptable" treatment. Veil row magistrate reprimanded >>>

The Quran, Islam and 'Honor Killing'

This column is posted in response to a recent question concerning Islam and so-called 'honor killings'.


The barbarous practice that passes under the moniker of 'honor killing' is most commonly practiced by Muslim Arabs, Kurds, Turks, Afghans and Pakistanis and their immigrant populations abroad. It now occurs in every Western country burdened with a Muslim immigrant subculture.

Interestingly enough, nowhere in the Quran or Hadith (biographies of Mohammed) will you find scripture or text that legitimizes honor killing. In fact, it is forbidden. Married Muslim women who commit adultery are to be stoned to death according to Shariah (Islamic law). But they must be judged by a religious court that requires testimony from four male witnesses to insure a conviction. The sentence would then be carried out by religious authorities; not family members.

That being the case, is it fair and just to attribute the practice of honor killing to Islam? Should this loathsome crime be attributed instead to tribalism or some other aspect of culture independent of Islam? I think not. Islamic misogyny, codified in centuries of Shariah that judges women less than the equals of men, facilitates the practice. Proof for this assertion can be found in the fact that the Hindu and Christian minorities who share in every way except religious faith the culture of the Muslim nations in which they reside do not engage in honor killings.

The renowned and respected counter-Shariah and counter-jihadist author Ali Sina writes:

“Honor killing is neither in the Quran nor is it specified in any hadith. It is however the natural outcome of the Islamic ethos of misogyny.

Women in Islam are regarded as sources of shame. Muhammad said they are awrah which can be translated as object of shame."

Let Them Eat Poppies


Why grow wheat when the West will give you wheat? Fields of poppies as far as the eye can see, but no wheat; now the Afghan muslims demand the infidels give them wheat and the dhimmis will comply or else.



Afghanistan appeals for food aid
By Pam O'Toole
BBC News



The spiralling cost of wheat has angered many Afghans
Afghanistan is appealing to the international community to provide extra supplies of wheat to alleviate a shortage, an Afghan minister has said.

Commerce Minister Mohammad Amin Farhang said the shortage could lead to serious problems during the winter.

His call came amid rising discontent inside Afghanistan at the spiralling cost of wheat and other basic food.

Afghanistan does not grow enough wheat to feed all its people and is partially dependent on imports.

Growing pressure

Mr Farhang made his comment in an interview with the German newspaper, Neue Osnabruecker Zeitung.

"The situation is serious," he said.


Kabul has come under increasing pressure to take action, amid rising grain prices on the international market.

And the political crisis triggered by the assassination of Pakistani opposition leader Benazir Bhutto has led to a reduction in wheat shipments from Pakistan.

Some people also blame shortages on the fact that wheat is being smuggled out of Afghanistan to neighbouring Tajikistan. [Sell the infidel's free wheat and demand more!]

In some areas, the price of bread has doubled or even quadrupled.

"Food prices have gone up and no-one can afford to buy all the food they need," said a resident of Lashkar Gar, the capital of the southern Helmand province.

"A 100kg of flour is about 3,300 Afghanis ($67), and poor people will not be able to afford to pay this at all. The government should do something about it," he added.

Helmand is one of the worst-affected areas - some say partly because local farmers have increasingly switched from growing wheat to the more lucrative opium poppy.

But the insurgency also plays a part. Worsening security limits the amount of aid getting to violence-torn provinces in the south.

There has been an increasing clamour in the Afghan press with columnists questioning why the government has not stockpiled supplies of grain.

This week, Kabul moved to ease concerns, cancelling a tax on imported grain until the end of the Afghan year, which ends in March, and reducing the tax on imported cooking oil.

But some ministers say the situation remains serious.

Enemy Within - DoD Puppet England and the PuppetMaster Hasham Islam





We all know that a Muslim fifth column has infiltrated the US government and is having a tremendous influence on the government's ability to understand Islam and the threat to the West it represents. Tragically, the Dept. of Defense has a powerful fifth column that is controlling what is said about Islam. We can see our enemy within and that enemy is DhimmiPuppet Undersecretary of Defense Gordon England and his PuppetMaster Hasham Islam.

Infidel, protect yourself. The enemy is within our military complex.


Coughlin sacked from Washington Times



Stephen Coughlin, the Pentagon specialist on Islamic law and Islamist extremism, has been fired from his position on the military's Joint Staff. The action followed a report in this space last week revealing opposition to his work for the military by pro-Muslim officials within the office of Deputy Defense Secretary Gordon England.



Mr. Coughlin was notified this week that his contract with the Joint Staff will end in March, effectively halting the career of one of the U.S. government's most important figures in analyzing the nature of extremism and ultimately preparing to wage ideological war against it.



He had run afoul of a key aide to Mr. England, Hasham Islam, who confronted Mr. Coughlin during a meeting several weeks ago when Mr. Islam sought to have Mr. Coughlin soften his views on Islamist extremism.



Mr. Coughlin was accused directly by Mr. Islam of being a Christian zealot or extremist "with a pen," according to defense officials. Mr. Coughlin appears to have become one of the first casualties in the war of ideas with Islamism.



The officials said Mr. Coughlin was let go because he had become "too hot" or controversial within the Pentagon.



Misguided Pentagon officials, including Mr. Islam and Mr. England, have initiated an aggressive "outreach" program to U.S. Muslim groups that critics say is lending credibility to what has been identified as a budding support network for Islamist extremists, including front groups for the radical Muslim Brotherhood.



Mr. Coughlin wrote a memorandum several months ago based on documents made public in a federal trial in Dallas that revealed a covert plan by the Muslim Brotherhood, an Egyptian-origin Islamist extremist group, to subvert the United States using front groups. Members of one of the identified front groups, the Islamic Society of North America, has been hosted by Mr. England at the Pentagon.

A Malaysian zipper control problem

First up for the new year out of the faux moderate state of Malaysia is proving to be a highly embarrassing development for the Malaysians. It's got nothing to do with Islam per se, but it's still too juicy a story for me to pass up.

Now, do remember happy campers, that Malaysia combines many of the worse elements of Singaporean style 'nanny state' government controls (when the government, and not you, decides what's best for you), and then it throws Islamic fascism into this perverted mix (haram this, haram that, et al infinitum). That just ups the schadenfreude of this whole mess, of course...but I digress.

It should be no surprise to anyone that Malaysia is a country that bans pornography. But scratch the surface and one finds, naturally, that the ban is widely ignored at all levels of Malaysian society, from top to bottom (sorry for the bad pun). How so? Hookers and prostitutes all but throw themselves at any well-to-looking foreigners in KL that happen by. People make and/or distribute grainy short and graphic sexual content via the mobile phone networks or the internet. Pirated porno DVDs are also widely available, and avidly watched by people who have few outlets otherwise for the usual human impulses.

And the star of one recent Malaysian 'unofficial' porno clip? Why it's none other than Malaysia's very married health minister, one Chua Soi Lek. This infidel has been caught literally with his pants down in a widely-seen clip with someone (not his wife) whom he is only describing as a 'close friend'. Close friend, eh? Nice to know that some of the Brit tendency to understate rubbed off on their erstwhile colonial possession.

Maybe he was checking on the health of his 'close friend'. All part of the job, yes?

Anyways, it takes quite a bit nowadays for anyone to embarrass the already incompetent and bumbling Badawi government, but when Chua had his 'zipper control' problem, he managed to do precisely that. Expect AAB to cast out his dhimmi minister momentarily.

But I say Chua should be promoted. At least he (sort of) told the truth when the scandal broke wide open. Consider that the usual Malaysian political technique, when caught with one's hand in the proverbial cookie jar, is to obfuscate, cover up, and deny, deny, deny. Chua should get at least some credit for going a bit against type.

Expect Chua to disappear by the end of the week. Perhaps he'll 'resign' for 'health' or 'personal' reasons.

Or maybe he'll get promoted to be the next Malaysian ambassador to, say, Paraguay.

UPDATE: He's out. Now he just has his marriage to worry about.
