Chris Matthews' Epic and Malicious Misread of History

Mr. Leg A-tingle compares the Trump kids to Saddam Hussein's rapist spawn, Uday and Qusay.

"Trans Black"

She's about as "trans Black" as I am "trans Swedish."

Free To Be Jihadi

"Let her story, and that of Israeli policy, be a lesson – and a warning."

Jewish Perversity in Chicago

The local branch of Jewish Voice for Peace has invited a soon-to-be-deported Palestinian terrorist to come speak to 'em (because she's a "victim" and a Trump-hating "feminist" and these "progressive" Jews have shite for brains).

So Funny I Forgot to Laugh

In case you missed it (I know I did), on this week's The Mindy Project the titular character gets some advice re her love life from a "wise" colleague:
Morgan is worried that he inadvertently talked Mindy out of marriage, so he brings her a stack of bridal magazines. He also asks if she’s worried about relating to Ben’s Jewish family. “Just don’t talk to them about your theories on Israel,” he advises. Mindy: “I don’t know what it is. Is it a place? Is it an idea?” Morgan, for once, offers sage words: “I would just leave the whole area alone.”
Actually, Mindy, Israel is a place and an idea.

It's the Doublemint gum of nations (because it's two, two, two things in one).

Hello Hijab is a New Line of Hijabs for Dolls

Update: What girls really need is a heaping helping of Hirsi Ali:

Update: Latinas in hijabs--it's a victimhood trifecta (chicks/Mexicans/Muslims)!

Not To Be Missed: Melanie Phillips in Jerusalem

Among other topics, the indomitable Ms. P. explains how she went from being "Miss Guardianista" to having the right stuff.

Abbas's Ridiculous Revisionism: He Says the Palestinians are Direct Descendents of the Ancient Canaanites

The old charlatan is at it again, lying up a storm:
Palestinian Authority (PA) head Mahmoud Abbas continued to propagate the Palestinian lie negating Jewish history by claiming that the Palestinians are the indigenous people of Israel and the descendants of the Canaanites.
Abbas was on a three-day trip to Germany to add diplomatic pressure on Israel. Addressing the Konrad Adenauer Foundation, he spoke about his alleged pursuit of peace.
Abbas also declared that “the nation of Palestine, throughout its long history, has been a beacon of generosity, and our people are an extension of the 3,500-year-old Canaanite civilization, with urban communities thousands of years old.”
Abbas was further circulating the lie that the Palestinians constitute a nation that existed for thousands of years.
The irony is that the socalled Palestinians have yet to decide just how old they are. Abbas put their age at 3,500 years. However,  other Palestinian leaders provide broadly differing opinions on this crucial issue; some go back as far as 15,000 years. 
Wow, that does sound impressively ancient.

And more than a little hard to believe.

So how old are "the Palestinians" really?

Actually, age-wise, they fall within the range of Generation X:
During the 19 years from Israel’s victory in 1948 to Israel’s victory in the Six-Day War, all that remained of the UN’s partitioned territory to the “Arabs” of British Mandatory Palestine were the West Bank, under illegal Jordanian sovereignty, and the Gaza Strip, under Egyptian rule. Never during these 19 years did any Arab leader anywhere in the world argue for the right of national self-determination for the Arabs of these territories. A “Palestinian” nation and “Palestinian” people had not yet been invented.

Sunni Terrorism Aimed at Shia "Infidels" Pops Up In...Malmo?

A prosecutor has charged a Syrian man with terror offences, alleging that he started a fire at a Malmö community centre in order to spread fear in the name of Isis.  
Nobody was injured in the fire at a community centre in Malmö owned by Shia Muslim organization Aldorr, but repair costs amounted to a million kronor ($113,000) 
The 30-year-old suspect, who denies the charges and the allegations he is a member of Isis, is accused of throwing Molotov cocktails at the centre on October 11th last year, causing smoke damage to the building. 
In December, Malmö's district court judged in a remand hearing that, contrary to the chief prosecutor's wishes, there was not enough evidence to consider the fire a terror incident and instead remanded him in custody on suspicion of arson. 
But on Monday the prosecutor insisted that the man is affiliated with Isis and charged him with a "terror offence, alternatively arson". The charge sheet, seen by The Local, argues that "this arson could seriously have harmed the state of Sweden. The purpose of the attack was to seriously intimidate a population group, in this case Shia Muslims, in the name of Isis," adding that the man is a Sunni Muslim who has expressed dislike of Shia Muslims. 
According to the charge sheet, police searching his computer found a description of how to make a detonator, which the prosecutor argues shows he has knowledge of how to make bombs. Police also found propaganda films showing Isis soldiers fighting and killing "infidels" and a picture of an Isis flag...

Talk About Your Rotten Timing

Douglas Murray has a few timely comments on the Trudeau government's anti-Islamophobia motion, which was passed mere hours after a deadly feat of jihad in London.

I especially liked (and appreciated) these words:
History suggests that when the law makes it illegal to tell the truth, a reliable portion of people can be called upon to lie. So it has been in the past. And so it will be with Canada. So it would be anywhere once the law became an opponent of truth rather than the protector of it.

The New York Times's Bone Headed Theory of Relativity

In a review of the Showtime documentary American Jihad, an NYT scribbler claims there have been "relatively few instances of jihad-inspired terrorism in the United States." The comment doesn't sit well (to say the least) with The Algemeiner's Ira Stoll:
“Relatively few”? 
The phrase stopped me in my tracks. 
The 1993 World Trade Center bombing. The 1994 murder of Ari Halberstam on the Brooklyn Bridge. The 2001 World Trade Center bombing. The 2009 Fort Hood shooting. The 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. The 2015 San Bernardino attack. The 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting. 
How many people have to die before the Times stops describing these attacks as “relatively few”? There might be even more such attacks except that the government, over the objections of the Times, has taken certain steps to try to prevent them. 
“Relatively few” is Times code for “not a problem that you should worry much about.” It’s not language you’ll often see in Times coverage of, say, school shootings, or Trump-era anti-Semitism and xenophobic violence.
That's because to "progressives" who write for and read the Times, Islam is okey-dokey, all of it, jihad is a modern invention that "perverts" peaceful Islamic teachings, and only "right-wing" ideology is worrisome.
