Those Damn Amish "Extremists"

In today's New York Times we find a fascinating article, entitled "In the West, a Growing List of Attacks Linked to Extremism".

Whose "extremism" may we ask? Perhaps the Buddists are rioting again over the cartoons depicting the Dalai Lama, by murdering innocents and burning cars in the streets. Or the Mormon extremists beheading those from other religions for drinking liquor or letting their women walk unescorted by a male relative. Oh, perhaps the Amish decided to end it once and for all with those pesky Mennonites. Yeah, that must be it.

We all know who the article focuses on... you guessed it - Islam. Shocking, I know.

The article starts with the recent attacks in Canada and works backward, including such attacks as the beheading in Oklahoma (classified as "workplace violence"), the murder of three at the Jewish Museum in Brussels, the murder of a British soldier on the streets of London, the murder of three French soldiers and three Jewish children and rabbi at a school (two separate attacks), the Fort Hood massacre (another act of "workplace violence"), and a couple of others.

Of course, the terrorism that strikes Jews daily in Israel is not included in this listing. Perhaps it isn't really terrorism when a three month old baby girl is murdered by a Muslim terrorist, completely ignored by the media in the wake of the attacks in Ottawa. Three months old. Jews murdered in their homeland, in Israel, young or old, don't count as terrorism.

While this week we have seen 'lone-wolf' attacks on our police and uniformed soldiers, it is only a matter of time before we will see these kind of attacks on civilians, the same attacks that Israel sees on a regular basis.

I'm glad to see that the New York Times is finally catching on to the dangers of the "extremists" among us - it's just too bad that they can't see the bigger picture... we are at war.

Prime Minister Harper's Address to the Nation

An Open Letter to President Obama

Dear President Obama,

Your statement today about the shootings that took place in Ottawa this morning were incredibly insensitive and disrespectful toward Prime Minister Harper and the Canadian people at large.

The Canadian public was in shock today, glued to their television screens as events unfolded. Knowing that the soldier on guard at the National War Memorial (akin to the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier) was shot and later died, and that there was an attack on Parliament itself, is numbing.

To idiotically state that...
"We don’t yet have all the information about what motivated the shooting. We don’t yet have all the information about whether this was part of a broader network or plan, or whether this was an individual or series of individuals who decided to take these actions. But it emphasizes the degree to which we have to remain vigilant when it comes to dealing with these kinds of acts of senseless violence or terrorism...."
Really Mr. President?! Really? We don't know "what motivated the shooting"? The Prime Minister has already determined that todays acts were terrorism. Terrorism. Or is that too harsh a word for you to say? Is "workplace violence" easier for you?

You disrespect Prime Minister Harper by assuming that you must know better - it couldn't possibly be terrorism... or perhaps it is as you suggest... "senseless violence".

These were not random targets. The National War Memorial, honoring the soldiers who gave their lives in defense of their country and western values. Parliament itself, the heart of the nation. A nation that believes in democracy and equal rights for all people.

Earlier in your statement, you refer to the attack on another two soldiers that occurred just two days ago - also, determined by the Canadian government to be a terrorist attack. You refer to it as a vague "attack". Would you rather call this also an act of "workplace violence"? And since both the attacks on Monday and this morning were by recent converts to Islam are we to be assured that Islam had nothing to do with either one?

As an American living in Canada, I am embarrassed by your response - an insensitive, disrespectful statement blind to the obvious murderous attack on western civilization.

No, Not "Workplace Violence"

I'm watching CBC coverage of the shooting in Ottawa. Peter Mansbridge, chief anchor of The National news program, was interviewing a police officer about details of the shooting.  I am still amazed - Mansbridge managed to ask him if this mornings shootings were terrorism, without actually using the word "terrorism". He couched the question along the lines of - were these attacks related to the attack in Quebec. Really?! You can't ask the basic question - "Was this a terrorist attack?" No, guess not. A-ma-zing.

Just another thought. The shooting at the National War Memorial was significant. It's like shooting the soldiers watching over the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It's a spit in our face - our honored dead don't matter.

Terrorist Attacks in Canada

Crazy week in Canada, generally quiet country located north of the United States.

Monday, two soldiers were attacked by an Islamist - one has unfortunately died.

Right now, there are reports of three shootings in Ottawa, capital of Canada. One on Parliament Hill, one at the War Memorial and a third near a shopping mall.

The War Memorial is like the US's Tomb of the Unknown Soldier - the two soldiers there were standing guard and one of them was shot and taken to the hospital. The media doesn't have his condition yet.

Since this was a coordinated attack and where the shootings took place, I am going to call this a terrorist attack.

Never Again?

Pathetic. Just pathetic.

It's reality television for real. We're watching Kobane, a city of Kurds being slowly overrun by ISIS terrorists and nothing is being done to save them. No, five airstrikes a day isn't cutting it. These Muslim barbarians from the 7th century don't even notice the mosquito bites of the missiles we're sending to stop them. Why should they? This is a joke of an air campaign. "Shock and Yawn" it's being called by our airmen.

The Kurds will be fighting until the last man/woman is beheaded. Thousands will be massacred. Don't worry, the U.S. cavalry isn't coming.  We'd rather watch our 24/7 news cycle with our Commander-in-Chief buying time until midterm elections.

Liberals today are all concerned about 'climate change' and 'equal pay' but when something really important - like lives - are at stake, they can't be bothered. Ancient Christians? Kurds? Yazidi? Never heard of them.

Good thing it isn't 1941. While President Franklin Roosevelt didn't attempt to bother saving the Jews, he had enough sense to see that the Nazis were a serious threat and threw everything we had at them.

"Never Again"?

Prime Minister Harper, a Real Leader

While President Obama attempts to sound serious about bombing ISIS, I want to point to Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada, who gets totally ignored by American news. He has had no qualms about calling a spade, a spade.
"Canadians are rightly sickened by ISIL's savage slaughter of anyone who doesn't share their twisted view of the world,' Harper told Conservative supporters. "We know their ideology is not the result of 'social exclusion' or other so-called root causes. It is evil, vile, and must be unambiguously opposed."
"Evil", "vile". Clear enough?

This is the same PM Harper who stood solidly behind Israel during the latest war with the Gaza terrorists, unlike President Obama who seemed to think that Israel had the right to defense, but only up to a point - killing too many terrorists just was not acceptable.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper reiterated his government’s hard line on Hamas Wednesday, saying the organization is solely responsible for the death and destruction in Gaza following almost a month of fighting between Israel and Hamas militants. 
“Obviously no one likes to see the suffering and loss of life that has occurred,” Harper told reporters in Air Ronge. 
“That said, we hold the terrorist organization Hamas responsible for this. They have initiated and continue this conflict and continue to seek the destruction of the state of Israel.”
PM Harper has also imposed serious sanctions on Russia for the invasion of Ukraine.

Prime Minister Harper has a clear picture of what the world, who is evil and who is trying to defend their people from evil - he is a true leader. Leaders are hard to come by these days - unafraid to speak the truth.

Of Israel, Gaza, Terrorists and Nazis

Phew, finally a moment without my little ones, three under three and a half. All enjoyable, all a pleasure to have, but it's tough to have a second to sit down at the computer. I'm loving every minute of being a stay-at-home mom.

Just a couple of random thoughts while I have this second.

First, there was some talk while the Israel-Gaza war was going on - that perhaps it would be best to leave Hamas in charge in there (which Israel did) rather than dismantle them because maybe a "worse" group may pop up in leadership. I think that choosing which terrorist group is "worse" is ridiculous. They all hate Israel, they all hate Jews - they all want us dead. To think that one is a more moderate terrorist is wishful and dangerous thinking. It is truthfully by the grace of G-d that the Iron Dome worked as well as it did and that the rockets didn't murder their intended targets.

Rather than solely focusing on destroying the tunnel system, Israel should have weakened Hamas enough to create a power vacuum. There are plenty of rival groups in Gaza that want to be in power... they would see a weakened Hamas and attempt to step into their shoes. Let us see a power struggle between the groups - that would keep them busy and keep Israel and her people safe(r).

A Deadly Battle for Gaza

Next. The other night I was watching a television show on the History Channel about World War II. It always amazes me, even as a student of history, how innovative, how amazing the United States was in creating, mass producing and even transporting troops, weapons and other necessaries across the world in order to destroy (not manage) the Nazi threat. Amazing and fantastic. Which made me wonder. If we could do what we did in the 1940s in only four years, why is ISIS even a threat? I'd consider them chump change in comparison to the Nazis. (Although I would agree that ISIS and radical Islam are a real threat to the world just like the Nazis were, I am only speaking militarily.) The difference is the will to destroy them. We had the will to eliminate the Nazis, we have no will to destroy the terrorists. We don't even recognize them as a real threat - while the 9/11 hijackers are referred to as terrorists, Hamas, ISIS and even the Muslim Brotherhood are "militants".

Well, at least President Obama finally has a strategy now. I feel better.

The United Nations, Collaborators with Terror

From a friend of mine...

The last photo I took of New York City, as I ended a few days of vacation there just over two weeks ago, was a shot of the United Nations building along the East River, snapped from the 59th Street Bridge.

There was a time when the image of that building held a certain symbolism of hope, an idealism not that much different from science-fiction depictions from Star Trek of the future, a future where all people on Earth worked together for a common purpose and where racial, religious and national bigotry had been left behind.

That was then. Recent times have shown this organization to have a different symbolism, especially for Israel and for Jews, and it is not of an idealized future. Verified reports of rockets and mortars being warehoused in United Nations buildings in Gaza, firing missiles at Israel from United Nations sponsored facilities, brings to the fore different imagery. Taken on its own, one could attribute this to gross incompetence on the part of the United Nations and its agencies and staff.

But taken with a decades long history of the United Nations singling out Israel for condemnation in its voting, in its biased investigations and in its racist rhetoric, the picture is one of either willful blindness on the part of the United Nations, or more likely, active collaboration with anti-Semitic and anti-Israeli terrorists, such as Hamas.

There is as much blood on the hands of the United Nations as there is on the hands of the masked Hamas militants who are now executing their own people in the streets of Gaza outside of mosques, those who are suspected of being in league with Israel. There is as much blood on the hands of the United Nations as there is on the hands of ISIS - where has the United Nations been as these extremists continue to murder countless innocents?

It is time to call the United Nations what it is - a racist collaborator with terror. It is time to stop seeing the United Nations as anything other than a puppet of extreme and murderous viewpoints, a facilitator for hatred masquerading as a humanitarian body. It long ago lost its credibility. It long ago ceased to be relevant.

The building along the East River? The symbolism now is not that much different than the images of relics from another era of racism and collaboration with murder. Images of iron gates inscribed with the ironic words "Arbeit Macht Frei" or images of the Brandenburg Gates, one of which was known as the Peace Gate. Symbols which now include the United Nations building standing alongside those from that different era, which sadly has much in common with the present.

As extremists murder innocents in the name of God, committing barbarous acts of atrocity in open view of the world, where is the United Nations? It is a building that is a shell, empty, devoid of principle, and instead of a united sense of outrage in the name of peace and stability, it stands by, watching as missiles are stockpiled within its agencies' walls, watching as rockets are fired under its nose and patiently waiting for yet another opportunity to condemn the one nation that continues to espouse the principles which were the founding raison d'être of the United Nations.

The last photo I took upon leaving New York. The only photo I took that made me ashamed to have once called that city my home. The United Nations has no business being allowed to operate on American soil - to my knowledge there are laws against terrorist organizations being allowed to operate domestically.

Israel has decided not only to stop its offensive which it had been utilizing to protect its citizens, but to give up all rights and claims to the land of Israel. It will hand over all property to the Arabs by Friday at noon. It also plans on nominating the group for the Nobel Peace Prize, citing that Hamas's use of children as human shields was the key to peace since "Hamas knows how much we value life, even theirs. " No word as to where the 6 million Jews will end up living, though Bibi was quoted as saying, "Perhaps we can live alongside the absorbed Palestinian citizens in the other Arab countries."

World War III is an ideological war and it started years ago. Nobody informed us it was instigated, and the majority of people today still don't know it's going on. It's insidious and quiet. It's widespread and dangerous. The only way to fight it is to educate yourself and others and to be aware.

Only now, after the three boys were kidnapped in Israel and after Hamas started firing rockets (again) at Israeli civilians, did people start to really notice the raging anti-Semitism occurring around the world. Not that it wasn't going on before - it was. But people see what they want, and don't see what they don't.

For years, there has been increasing acts of violence and intimidation against Jews, most notably, Francethe UK, and other European countries. A statistical analysis has shown that 150 million people across Europe have serious anti-semitic views or a "demonic view" of Israel. The new anti-Semitism stems from the far right (authoritarianists, anti-communists, nativists, and fascists), the political left, and a growing Muslim population in these countries.

Even in peaceful Canada, there have been riots and violence against Jews and non-Jewish supporters of Israel. In Calgary the other day, hundreds of Muslims and non-Muslim Jew-haters rioted "peacefully" right before they attacked the group of a dozen or so pro-Israel protestors. No police were present and it almost escaped the attention of the media.

There are 1.2 billion Muslims in the world today. It is estimated that 15-25% of those Muslims are radical, according to all intelligence sources around the world. That means, mathematically, that 180-300 MILLION Muslims are radical, dedicated to the destruction of democracy and Western civilization. That's as many people as occupy our United States of America.

Let me repeat this. These 180-300 million people dedicate their lives and deaths to murdering and mutilating YOU, the infidel.

According to the Qu'ran, they believe that men are worth more than women... in inheritance (4:11, 4:176), in court testimony (2:282), purity (5:6), dominion over the body (2:223), wife to husband ratio (4:3), sex slaves (4:24, 33:50), and more. This is supported by the Hadith, the record of the sayings of their prophet Mohammed, which supplements the Qu'ran.

Women are not alone. Muslims also look down upon homosexuals, Christians, hypocrites (those who claim to be Muslim but are not radical enough), and, of course, Jews.

Do not think that you will be spared.
"Oh ye who believe! Fight those of the disbelievers who are near to you, and let them find harshness in you, and know that Allah is with those who keep their duty." -Qu'ran, Sura 9:123.
They are encouraged to lay low, to lie to non-believers, to gain in numbers until such a time when they can take over. This is how they work. We can now see that their hard work and patience is paying off. Look at France where synagogues are burned. Look at Chicago where tens of thousands march in support of Hamas and their murderous methods. Look at Ann Arbor - where pro-"Palestinian" rallies and take place and people are afraid to act. 

It will only increase. Keep your eyes open and do not blind yourself to what is happening. The war has begun. Jewish, not Jewish. White, Black, Yellow, Purple. Heterosexual, homosexual. If you aren't a radical Muslim, YOU are the infidel. YOU are their enemy. Be prepared to fight.

News Roundup for the Week

Busy week in the news, and certainly not enough time to comment on all of it, so here's a short collection of thoughts. Enjoy.

In the nothing to see here category:
Eric Holder: No Plans at DOJ to Investigate Secret Waiting Lists and Veteran Deaths at VA Hospitals
American deaths worth investigating? Really, why would Holder start now? The FBI's Fast and Furious program causing the death of border patrol agent Brian Terry (and countless Mexicans) didn't bring any accountability to the Department of Justice - no one was fired for this terrible program.

Feds released hundreds of immigrant murderers, drunk drivers, sex-crimes convicts
In 2013, the Federal government released thousands of illegal immigrants:
immigrants whom U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement released from custody last year there were 116 with convictions for homicide, 43 for negligent manslaughter, 14 for voluntary manslaughter and one with a conviction classified by ICE as “homicide-willful kill-public official-gun.”...
15,635 for drunken driving, 9,187 for what ICE labeled “dangerous drugs,” 2,691 for assault, 1,724 for weapons offenses and 303 for “flight escape” — a category that would seem to make them bad candidates for release.

Last, but not least - what's new?
Hamas TV: Giant, cuddly bee teaches children to "shoot Jews" and "smash them"
Yup, these are the guys that the "moderate" Palestinian Authority would rather reconcile with rather than making peace with Israel. It's really nothing new - we know that no matter if they are the "moderates" or the "extremists", they both hate the Jews - and are willing to teach their children to commit suicide in order to murder us.
And from the "moderates" - they have their own creative videos involving children.

My take on these "peace makers": The "Moderate" vs. "Extreme" Terrorists
