About those Boston Bombers II

Continued from here

Just found this documentary via Vlad Tepes. It comes from one of  the wittiest groups  in the world today, and I am not surprised that it is "made in Israel". (The woman behind Latma is Caroline Glick.)






The Australian media and politicians are towing exactly  this line to a point where I feel justified to call this Latma Satire a "documentary". 

I expected it from our tax-payer funded organisations, e.g. the ABC who wants to be like the BBC when it grows up and they didn't disappoint:  one of the main hosts of our ABC's Breakfast show spoke of the Boston victims as merely  "rich white Western people".

But even so-called conservative outlets among our  commercial TV channels still refuse to even mention the "Islam"-word, or the "Muslim"-word. During a full half hour on the subject of the Boston bombing (Chanel 10 "Meet the Press") they referred not once to the bombing victims (except with a lukwarm  motherhood cliché en passant), neither the "I"-  nor "M"word was ever  mentioned, and the  the Muslim bombers were described as  "marginalised young boys", repeatedly.   

The very few courageous journalists who actually dared mentioning the "I" and the "M" word are being demonised by the herd who consider that pointing  out the nakedness of the emperor is raaaaacist.  .




And then there is this one very courageous Politician,  Geert Wilders, leader of  the Dutch Party for Freedom, the largest party in the latest polls.






 He wrote in the  "The Australian"  yesterday (I post the article in toto, because Geert Wilders is always worth reading,  the bolds are mine):

No, I was not surprised when the Tsarnaev brothers, the terrorists involved in last week's Boston bombing, turned out to be Islamic radicals. And neither am I surprised that they are fans of Australian Islamic cleric Sheik Feiz Mohammed.  
 Nor will I be surprised if a similar attack happens in Australia - or Europe, or anyplace where the authorities remain blind to the true nature of Islam. We learned on Tuesday of a planned attack in Canada.
Read the Koran and you will find the explanation. "Fighting is obligatory for you, much as you dislike it," the Koran tells the faithful (2:216). In case anyone doubts what is meant by fighting: "I shall cast terror into the hearts of the infidels. Strike off their heads, maim them in every limb!" (8:12).
And yet, most Western intellectuals, journalists and politicians keep declaring that the "true" Islam can be found in the occasional non-bellicose sentences of the Koran. "Islam is a religion of peace," they say. And whenever adherents of this "religion of peace" blow up pressure cookers full of nails amid innocent bystanders, we hear that "they are not acting in accordance to Islamic teachings".
I have spent almost a decade under round-the-clock police protection because of death threats. I have been marked for death by the adherents of Islam for stating that the cause of Islamic terrorism is Islam. Its founder Mohammed "cast terror", in his own words, into the hearts of people. To give but one example: In 627, Mohammed ordered the genocide of the Banu Qurayza, a Jewish tribe from Medina. The women and children were sold as slaves and the men were decapitated, with Mohammed actively participating in the massacre. Osama bin Laden took his authority from the teachings and the practice of Mohammed. Islam is definitely not a religion like other religions. Did Jesus slaughter his enemies? Are there any Jews or Buddhists who for the sake of their religion fly planes into buildings or murder and maim onlookers at a marathon?
People such as Feiz Mohammed, the Australian-born sheik of Lebanese origin, whose Islamic "sermons" inspired the Tsarnaev brothers, are not propagating a false Islam. They are propagating the Islam of the Koran and of Mohammed. Why do most intellectuals, journalists and politicians close their eyes to this reality?
Three years ago, Feiz Mohammed issued an internet video in which he called for my beheading. I was, he said, "evil filth". "Chop his head off," he told his followers. I am threatened for the simple reason that I am an Islam critic. But, make no mistake, I am not the only one who is in danger. The Tsarnaev brothers drew inspiration from Feiz Mohammed's internet rants and decided to kill innocent onlookers at a marathon. Everyone is in danger.
Following the Boston bombing, Australia's Attorney-General Mark Dreyfus said that Sheik Mohammed's videos no longer represent his views. He said: "Sheik Feiz Mohammed, in recent months, condemned the use of violence and certainly, as a community leader, he's someone that's getting behind the countering violent extremism program that we have in many communities."
Dreyfus has great faith in the conversion of the hate-preacher. But I do not share this optimism. Islam's founder Mohammed told his followers that they are allowed to lie and cheat in order to advance Islam. I have not heard the sheik recall his demand for my beheading. Nor did the Tsarnaev brothers hear Sheik Mohammed declare that the Islam he preached earlier is not the true Islam.
When, two months ago, I visited Australia  at the invitation of the Q Society, I spoke at public events in Melbourne and the Sydney suburb of Liverpool. An event in Perth was cancelled because West Australian Premier Colin Barnett opposed my presence in his state. The event in Melbourne was disrupted by violent protests. Various conference centres in Sydney refused to have me, which forced me to speak in Liverpool which, as it happens, used to be the home turf of Feiz Mohammed.
People who came to listen to me had to go through thorough security checks. Sadly, this was all necessary because there are people - not just in Europe, Canada and America, but also in Australia - who are willing to bring into practice what Sheik Mohammed preaches in his internet videos.
Will Australian politicians learn the lessons from Boston? It all depends on whether they are prepared to face the truth. As Debbie Robinson of the Q Society, Australia's leading organisation promoting a realist view of Islam, said in a reaction to the "extremism" behind the Boston atrocity: "Professing to seek solutions, but refusing to identify the cause, is pointless."
In my view, the cause is Islam's inherent violent and intolerant nature. I always make a distinction between Muslims and Islam. Most Muslims are moderate, but this does not mean that there is such thing as a moderate Islam. People who reject Islam's violent and intolerant commandments are not practising "moderate Islam" - in my view they are not practising Islam at all.
 If Islam was a tolerant religion would I - or anyone who criticises Islam - have to live under 24-hour police protection?

An Australian politician once said "Dont let the bastards get you down".  
Here is a visual quote which fits this challenge:

Do you ever wonder how they go to the toilet in space?  So do I.

Do  you ever wonder how they make love in space? So do I.

Do you ever wonder how they hold their water in space? So did I.

But, not any longer; I found the answer to that last one  via  Vlad Tepes ;)

About those Boston bombers...(*)

(*) will be updated as it develops.



...I don't know. Somewhere I have a very uneasy feeling. Am I turning into a conspiracy nut? Or is the little warning light waved about by the best friends I have, my instincts,  to be taken seriously?

I don't need to add to all the  already published  "information" about the Boston bombings, but the denouement of this terrifying tragedy seems just a little too neat to me.

Yes, the Boston Bombers are Muslims of Chechnyan background, bringing back the horrible memory of  "Beslan's Children", they were, so their face book tell us, inspired by one of the islamist weeds spreading its poison  here in Australia, Sheikh Feiz, and they have apparently travelled back to Chechnya after  being accorded refugee status in the US...all that and more  fits  nicely into the "normal" islamist terrorist box.

And yet....

click here for a conclusively inconclusive press conference.


Originally I thought (and said), if they take the Boston Bomber(s) alive, I will no longer wonder what that sudden, unscheduled discussion (closed to the press)  between Obama and the Saudi Foreign Minister, right after the Boston Marathon Massacre was all about, and I will accept that the permission for all Saudis to leave the US immediately was no more sinister that the free leave pass they  got right after 9/11. I intended to  accept that the initial suspect, a Saudi, was "let go"  on solid grounds and that his release had nothing to do with the meeting between Obama and the Saudi Minister.

But...

the first alleged Boston Bomber is dead.

His younger brother, the second alleged Boston Bomber is alive, but (so it now appears) barely.

So..

I will hold  my instincts at bay, and wait for his testimony.......unless, of course, this second alleged Boston Bomber is also going to meet the 72 brown eyed virgins...in that case:  watch this space!




This reaction to evil by the people of Boston is inspiring:









I will post updates here, and they will all be in Oz-time.



First update 21.4.2013:

From the ABC news this morning:


"...It is believed the 19-year-old was shot in the throat in the earlier gunfight with police and it is unclear when he will be able to talk again. Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick confirmed Tsarnaev's condition was serious, but added he hoped he would survive. "He's not yet able to speak," he said. "We have a million questions and those questions need to be answered...."








2nd update 21.4.2013

Found on  SheikYerMami's  blog tonight:






Curiouser and Curiouser...










3rd update 22.4.2013 - a little interlude:

A timely  lesson by Andrew Klavan on:


"How to Behave During an Islamic Massacre" 











4th update 23.4.2013 


That pebble in my shoe keeps irritating me: So, okay they now have a confession from  the surviving bomber who, so we are told, confirms that he and his brother "acted alone". His statement cannot be used in Court, because he was not read his rights before it was obtained, in other words: we have to take "their" word for it.

Hmmmm, if I may indulge in a little mixing  of metaphors:  perhaps this pebble in my shoe is rather the seed of suspicion, planted in my mind when I first read about "that initial suspect", a Saudi,  who apparently enjoys special protection in  very high places...where is he now?

Glen Beck seems, perhaps, a tad emotional in his delivery, but I think it's worth listening to his points here.

The defaming of Pamela Geller




“I don’t spread hate, I EXPOSE hate!”




Sir Winston Churchill had an explanation  for what might have motivated  the two  Rabbis to join  the herd of Pamela Geller defamers with an article they called "Hate Speech Has No Place in a Synagogue":


An appeaser (Churchill said) is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.


This video (h/t Vlad Tepes)  is a response to that article  but it is also a message to the rest of the herd so eagerly into the fashionable sport of  Pamela-Geller-bashing without ever hearing or  reading what she says. The introduction by the poster of the video is quite an eye-opener also.











I have been an admirer of Pamela Geller's courage  for a long time. I wish, more of us had half of  it. Here is what she said during her acceptance speech of the Queen Esther crown:

"STOP BOWING DOWN !  It’s getting worse and it’s getting scarier  for the Jews …the worst thing you can do is “Operation fœtal position” We have been there, we have done that, we have died,  ENOUGH, stand up." 











Update:

Pamela Geller's Banned Synagogue Talk, April 14, 2013


Usually, with the contemporary attention span being shorter than that of a humming bird  on speed, I don't post looong(ish) videos, but I make an exception with this soi-disant “controversial” speech by Pamela Geller.  If you have 20 minutes or so, do yourself the favour to listen to this extraordinarily brave and inspiring woman.

For those who do not have time to listen here are a few samples of  what she said:

Half way into the speech (minute 12.30) she tells us in just a little sentence the quintessence of what she does:

“I don’t spread hate, I EXPOSE hate!”

I don't worry about the Fanaticism of the enemy, I worry about the confusion on our side”.

“I don't have to pat on the back every Muslim that doesn’t want to kill me”

“Don’t burn the Koran, read the Koran”

“You must speak…you are hearing little things during the day: Do not let them go !

“Everyone standing up to this issue is a giant!  It’s withering......believe me, You would not want to be me”

“ You must speak SPEAK…and withdraw your sanction (of evil)”.

Margaret Thatcher














"Everyone has the right to be unequal..."










"...a single (European) currency is about a Federal Europe by the backdoor..."


thanks vlad tepes








13. October 1925 - 8. April  2013










Update: 14. 4. 2013

A Woman of Substance, so one of our best columnists, Miranda Devine, describes Margaret Thatcher in this article which I highly recommend you to read, if you are at all interested in Australian politics. In it she gives you a brilliant run-down on the machiavellian machinations of our opportunistically  feminist politicians from the left.

A tear for the Unkown French Soldier


I just read this article by Alain Dubos from Riposte Laique and it makes me want to cry. I will try and do it some justice by translating and part interpreting it. Here is my earlier post about Mali, the latest altar on which they sacrifice our best and youngest.



Mali : 
Nos soldats n’auront pas de nom, pour ne pas exposer leurs familles aux représailles !
 Our soldiers will have no name, to protect their families from reprisals




Les premiers récits des combats au Nord-Mali reflètent la réalité d’une guerre âpre et exténuante. Disproportion des forces, décrétent aussitôt les stratèges de studios, ceux-là mêmes qui appellent les pompiers quand un frelon bourdonne dans le séjour de leur longère en Vexin. Sans doute pouvait-on chasser Al Qaida de la zone avec de simples bombes insecticides! Les Français et les Tchadiens tombés entre les rochers des Ifoghas remercient ces cerveaux d’élite pour leur très chrétienne compassion.
The first combat reports from Northern Mali reflect the reality of a grim and exhausting war. Whereas the desk strategists already claim already a disproportional force. These are the guys who call the firefighters when a hornet buzzes around their living room. They seem to think that one could have chased Al Queda out of that zone with some simple spray cans of insecticide. The fallen French and Chadians thank those brains of the elite for their christian compassion.


Je pense aux hommes engagés dans cette aventure. Au désintéressement qui est le leur face à l’indifférence ou à la trahison de leurs compatriotes. À leur courage, à leur peur, à leur sens du devoir quand ils escaladent des chaos de pierres sous le feu d’armes fournies à leur ennemi par ceux-là mêmes qui les envoient au casse-pipe.
I am thinking of the men engaged in this adventure. Their selflessness compared to the indifference, even betrayal of their compatriots. I think of their courage, their fear, their sense of duty as they climb over the chaos of stones under the gunfire of arms given to their enemy by exactly those who sent them to this slaughter.(*)


Le cul bien calé dans les coussins du Flore ou de la Closerie, le Général Lévy a d’ailleurs décidé que, le jeu étant inégal, on fournirait aux rebelles de Syrie l’arsenal destiné à transiter ensuite vers les régions du Sahel où l’on peut encore dégommer du chrétien, surtout originaire de France. Il est fort, le Général. Intuitif, perspicace, volontaire, et toujours du bon côté de la caméra. Un type bien, vraiment.
"His arse well ensconced in the soft cushions of le Flore or la Closerie des Lilas , the General Levy..."
Here follows an attack (justified in my opinion) of Bernard-Henri Levy (BHL), a darling of the French media and advisor to Sarkozy who, controversially (and wrongly in my opinion), agitated for the French intervention in Lybia and who now thinks that arming the jidhadists in Syria would be a good idea. The author closes this paragraph with biting irony:

"he is strong, the General. Intuitive, perceptive, headstrong, and always on the good side of the camera. A great guy, truly."

En attendant la contre-offensive des petits sacripants de la charia version ligne de coke, des jeunes gens meurent loin du Stade de France, des abattoirs halal et du Ministère de la Justice. Leurs camarades, s’ils survivent, auront l’immense privilège de n’être reconnus par la Nation que par leurs prénoms. La raison de cela? Leur éviter de possibles représailles ainsi qu’à leurs familles. On a bien lu, entendu, compris. Des anonymes! Dans les registres publics et sur les monuments aux morts, simplement, ils seront Guillaume, Vassili, Abel, Julien, Gregor. Des sans-famille, des sans-patrie, des sans-nom, d’obscurs rouages d’une machine sans visage, sans affect et sans mémoire.
Waiting for the counter offensive from the little rascals of the charia version line of coke our young people die, far from the Stade of France, her abattoirs halal and far from the Ministry of Justice. Their comrades, if they survive will have the immense privilege to be recognised by the Nation only by their first names. The reason for this? To protect them and their families from possible revenge attacks. Yes you have well read, heard, understood. Anonyme men. In public registers and on war memorials they will simply be Guillaume, Vassili, Abel, Julien, Gregor. Men without a family, without a country, without a name, obscure cogs in a faceless machine, without affect, without memory.

Quelle infâme dégueulasserie. Et quelle terreur chez ceux qui tout-à-coup, révélent au peuple qu’il dispose désormais d’un ennemi intérieur capable de vengeance. Car c’est bien de cela qu’il s’agit : protéger par l’anonymat les proches des soldats dont la France glorifie les exploits à grands de coups de menton ministériels. Nous sommes là aux cimes de la lâcheté. Comment peut-on mépriser à ce point et les hommes et le drapeau sous lequel ils risquent leur vie? Comment peut-on donner, par de telles reculades, quitus de leur bon droit à des gens impatients de faire payer à nos soldats le prix de leur engagement?
Eh bien, il est un pays où cela est aujourd’hui possible. Et c’est le nôtre, hélas.
What dishonourable filthyness. And what terror among those who suddenly reveal to the people that they have an enemy on the inside capable to take revenge. Because that's what it is about: Protect the loved ones of the soldiers through anonymity, these soldiers whose exploits France glorifies by big "coups de menton ministeriels".(**). We are here at the zenith of cowardice. How can one be that contemptuous of the men and the flag under which they risk their life?
Well, there is a country where this is possible, today. It is our country, alas.





While the French soldiers and their families of today might get killed by the enemy within, these 144 soldiers in the following video were killed by the enemy without. Here are their faces and their names. Lest we forget.

















(*) France armed the "rebels" during the war in Lybia. These arms are now used by the Jihadists in Mali.

(**) this is not translatable, but: remember Mussolini's speeches, when he kept on clenching his jaws and sharply rise his chin, to display power and determination.

Qantas converts to Islam



QANTAS THEN:









QANTAS NOW:



"...QANTAS has removed   pork from its in-flight menu on flights to and from Europe as a result of its partnership with Middle Eastern airline Emirates. 
No food containing pork or pork products will be served on those flights - which now has a stopover in Dubai - because it is strictly forbidden in Islam and is considered "unholy".
All meals offered on the route in first, business and economy classes will also be prepared without alcohol in keeping with the Islamic religion. A note on the Qantas menus on flights in and out of Dubai states that the meals do not contain pork products or alcohol. The airline has also introduced a mezze plate offering traditional Middle Eastern fare in its upper classes and has Arabic translations after in-flight announcements….”







That freedom above the clouds of which  Reinhard May sings
 does certainly not exist any longer on Qantas flights:





Refrain: "...Über den Wolken muss die Freiheit wohl grenzenlos sein 
Alle Ängste alle Sorgen, sagt man blieben darunter verborgen, und dann 
würde was uns gross und wichtig erscheint plötzlich nichtig und Klein..."
My translation: "...Above the clouds Freedom surely is infinite
and all fears and worries, so they say, remain hidden below
and then, what we consider so big and important
suddenly seems insignificant and small. 





The spin doctors are  talking about a “partnership”  between Qantas and the Islamic airline Emirates. I call it a sell-out. This soi-disant “partnership” is just a few weeks old and already Qantas has banned pork and alcohol and will only fly via Dubai, not a very safe place for Jews nor for gays I would think.  I wonder for how long the Irish and openly gay Qantas boss who sold this former pride of Australia to Qatar, would survive under islam?


With apologies to  Pastor Niemoeller : "First they came for the pork chop…."



Qantas, like certain suburbs of Paris, has become a no-go zone for me and from now on  it’s: SINGAPORE AIRLINES  ALL THE WAY!*

Pat Condell is offended by Islam





........and come to think of it, so am I.



















Update 4.4. 2013:

"Tunisian FEMEN activist Meriam burned a salafist flag in front of the Grande Mosquée de Paris today at 4PM as a symbol of women’s fight against wild religious extremism. The Arab sextremist gave a sign of women’s stand-off to those who kill and rape in the name of Allah. The recent call of Tunisian salafists to stone Tunisian activist Amina was the last step before a big women riot...."
