Iran's "Al Quds Day" Khomeinists Proudly Proclaim Their Desire to Wipe Israel Off the Map

Even their "moderate" president gets in on the eliminationist action (as reported by mullah mouthpiece, Press TV):
Millions of people have taken to the streets across Iran and other world countries to show their solidarity with the Palestinians and condemn Israel’s decades-long occupation and atrocities.  
The rallies are held to mark Quds Day, which falls on the last Friday of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. 
In Tehran and other cities and towns, people from all walks of life gathered for the annual event which usually marks people chanting slogans against Israel and burning the occupying regime's flags. 
The occasion is a legacy of the late founder of the Islamic Republic Imam Khomeini, followed by Muslims in other countries to support the Palestinian struggle against Israel. 
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani along with other senior Iranian officials took part in the Tehran rally. 
Speaking on the sidelines of the event, Rouhani said “the message of Quds Day is that of hatred towards the occupying and usurping regime as well as support for the oppressed nation” of Palestine.
He underlined the importance of this year’s Quds Day “given the presence of terrorists in the region, who are backed by Israel,” adding people are determined to cleanse the region of Tel Aviv-backed terrorists. 
The message of Quds Day is "kill those uppity Joooos!"

But you already knew that, right?

Update: Re tomorrow's eliminationist rally on the grounds of the Ontario legislature, James Pasternak, a Toronto city councilor (the only one with a discernable spine, apparently), issued the following press statement:
Councillor Pasternak once again calls for the Al Quds Day hate rally to be banned from Queen’s Park  
Toronto City Councillor James Pasternak, Ward 10, York Centre is extremely frustrated that the racist Al-Quds Day Rally is scheduled to be held at Queen’s Park despite the group not having a permit for the space. 
“It is truly shocking that this group is permitted to hold Anti-Israel rallies at Queen’s Park despite the repeated appeals by so many members of the Jewish community. It is disgraceful that a rally with speakers supporting the destruction of Israel, denying the Holocaust and making racial slurs is permitted to take place at the site of Ontario’s democratic legislature,” said Councillor Pasternak. 
Councillor Pasternak was deeply disturbed to learn that a keynote speaker at this year’s rally will be a virulent Holocaust denier. Past rallies have featured anti-Semitic remarks and speeches in support of terrorist organizations. Flags supporting Hamas, declared a terrorist organization by most western countries, have also been seen at the rally. 
“How many more anti-Semitic speeches spreading hatred and inciting violence will members of the Jewish community have to endure before the Province finally does something. It is time for this rally to be told it is not welcome at Queen’s Park or any place in Toronto,” said Councillor Pasternak.
Spot on, Councillor Pasternak!

Hypocrisy In Action: "Progressive" Feminists Snub Muslim Women Who Speak Out Against the Oppressiveness, Unfairness of Sharia Law

Absolutely disgusting!

Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard: "Unfortunately, You Cannot Disconnect This Type of Event--Terrorism--From Islam in General"

We're so used to people in a position of power being weak-kneed and mealy-mouthed on the topic of jihad that when someone musters the courage to speak the truth it is as thrilling as it is shocking.

Such is the case with the Quebec premier's statement.

To bolster Couillard's observation, here's Bruce Bawer unpacking the essential argument Ibn Warraq makes in his latest book:
No, as Warraq demonstrates, there's no way around it: Islamic terrorism is jihad. And jihad is a founding Islamic concept. The apologists, of course, have their own line on this one, too: under true Islam, they say, the word jihad denotes an inner spiritual process, and has nothing to do with violence; when terrorists use the word to describe their depredations, they're distorting the word and the faith. Warraq, citing a wide range of scholarly sources – both Western and Islamic, some recent and some dating back to the eighth century – puts that fulsome falsehood firmly in its place: yes, jihad can be used to mean an inner struggle, but in the Koran and Hadith, and in key texts ever since, it always refers, above all, to the sacred obligation to advance Islam by means of armed action against unbelievers. 
Warraq also gives us a sweeping – but succinct – lesson in the history of jihad, beginning with Muhammed's own conquests, then moving on to ninth- through eleventh-century Baghdad, seventeenth-century Constantinople, eighteenth-century Saudi Arabia, and so on, right up to today's Muslim Brotherhood. Of course the apologists (Barack Obama among them) would have us believe that the Muslim Brotherhood is moderate and non-violent; Warraq establishes that throughout its existence, to the contrary, the Brotherhood has preached Holy War, period. Then there's the Nazis. Some apologists argue that Islam was just peachy until some of its leaders got chummy with Hitler and were infected by his love of violent world conquest and Jew-hatred; Warraq establishes that if Islamic higher-ups cozied up to the Nazis, it was because their totalitarian, exterminationist doctrines were already extremely similar. 
Warraq also introduces us to a 1979 book that has been called “the most influential treatise on why Jihad is necessary and how it must be fought.” Written by one Brigadier S. K. Malik, The Qur'anic Concept of War won the endorsement of no less a jihad enthusiast than the late Pakistani president Zia al-Haq. A brief sample: “The Quranic military strategy...enjoins us to prepare ourselves for war to the utmost in order to strike terror into the hearts of the enemies....[The Koran] gives us a distinctive concept of total war. It wants both the nation and the individual to be at war 'in toto,' that is, with all their spiritual moral and physical resources.” In addition to Malik's tome, Warraq reads (so we don't have to) several other vile works that have also inspired the suicide-vest set – a veritable library of holy hate. 
Warraq sums up his book's point as follows: “jihad is essential for the spread of Islam, and it is a duty incumbent on all Muslims until Islam covers the whole surface of the earth.” And what's essential for the West's survival is for us infidels to face up to the fact that nothing is more integral to Islam than that monstrous duty...

Fun for the Whole Family!

Ramadan Jihad Comes to Wisconsin and Michigan

And, no, Ramadan Jihad is not the name of a terrorist (although it would make a damn fine one, don't you think?).

Update: Here's a fun drinking game--down an alcoholic bevvie every time the CBC appends the word "holy" to "the month of Ramadan."

On second thought, better not. It could land you in the hospital for alcohol poisoning.

Hard to Believe: The Reason Why Otto Warmbier's Jewishness Was Kept Secret

Anyone else have a hard time swallowing this (my bolds)?:
The family of Otto Warmbier, the American college student who died on Monday, days after his release from 17 months of captivity in North Korea, was advised to keep his Jewish background and identity concealed while officials tried to negotiate his release.

That was because the North Korean justification for his imprisonment centered on a dubious claim that Warmbier had stolen a propaganda poster in a Pyongyang hotel lobby on orders from the Friendship United Methodist Church in Wyoming, Ohio, to bring it back “as a trophy” in exchange for a used car worth $10,000.         
“That’s why that part of the story was kept quiet,” added Bergman, executive director of The Richardson Center, an organization founded by former New Mexico governor Bill Richardson that works to negotiate the release of prisoners and hostages held by hostile regimes.
Yes, because heaven knows what the North Koreans might do if you "embarrass" them.

NCCM "Community Organizer"/Fundraiser: Do As I Say, Not As I Do

Leila Almawy, "a community organizer and documentary filmmaker based in London, Ontario," sent out the following appeal on behalf of the entity formerly known as CAIR-CAN(and currently knows as the NCCM; hat tip MW):
Hello Friends: 
These past few days have been heavy and trying for the Muslim communities across the world - Grenfell, Nabra, the UK Mosque ploughing by a white supremacist. It's getting increasingly difficult to navigate through spaces as a Muslim, constantly watching your back, never knowing if you or someone you love will be next. 
If you're looking for a way to help, to be an ally, you can donate to the NCCM - National Council of Canadian Muslims so that they can continue to expand their reach to defend victims of discrimination and hate crimes, to engage policymakers on critical issues, to train new community leaders in advocacy, and to build more channels for civic engagement. 
NCCM is an independent, non-partisan and non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the human rights & civil liberties of Canadian Muslims (and by extension of all Canadians), promoting their public interests and challenging Islamophobia and other forms of xenophobia. 
Take action now. 
Please consider donating to my team 'Agents of Change' by going to causesquare.com/supportnccm and selecting my team name... 
And lastly, please share this far and wide. 
Peace,
Leila Almawy
"Defend victims of discrimination and hate crimes"; "build more channels for civic engagement"; challenge "Islamophobia and others forms of xenophobia": community organizer Leila and her "Agents of Change" team sound freaking pretty awesome, don't they?

But maybe we should check and see what else Leila is saying--say, on her Twitter feed.

For instance, this:
So pardon my rage (or don't) when I say screw the & & & . Either way, idgaf. With love & rage, Leila
Wow, that doesn't sound very civically engaging. In fact, it sounds downright hateful, bigoted, xenophobic and potty-mouthed to me.

Go figure, huh?

"Is Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman a 'Slap' in the Face of Palestinian Women?"

I'm pretty sure that if Palestinian women are being slapped, it's because of sharia-heeding Palestinian men, and not because a gorgeous Israeli woman was cast in the role of a super hero.

That said, I think Gal Gadot playing Wonder Woman does more to normalize Israel in the face of intractable haters than almost anything any Israel advocacy group tries to do. Which, when you think of it, is a big part of the reason why the Israel-haters are so upset about Gal Gadot's success.

"Progressive," Virtue-Signaling Jews 4 Palestinians

Of course, that's not what they call themselves, even though that's exactly what they are.

We often hear that the ultra-Orthodox Jews who will bring about Israel's doom, but I think these sanctimonious "progressive" types (a tautology, but so what?) who are more likely to sink the Jewish state.

A notorious Holocaust denier, that's who.

Thanks, Obama

Because of you and the shoddy bill of goods you sold Americans as a prelude to your dastardly nuke deal, Ayatollahville will be joining the A-bomb club in short order. Ron Dermer, Israel's ambassador to the U.S., details your blatant--and, yes, wicked--malfeasance here:
An “alternative universe” was created to sell the Iran nuclear deal to the American people, Israeli Ambassador to the US Ron Dermer said on Wednesday. 
“Two years ago, a propaganda campaign conducted by a master of fiction manufactured moderation and filled echo chambers with nonsense,” Dermer noted, in an apparent reference to Ben Rhodes, who served as former President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser for strategic communications. 
“In this alternative universe, Iran’s path to the bomb has been blocked,” Dermer explained. “In the real world, Iran’s path to the bomb has been paved, because the restrictions the nuclear deal puts in place will be automatically removed in a few years, no matter how Iran behaves. So the clock is ticking. The sands are coming out of that glass and time is literally on their side. You see, Iran won’t need to sneak in or break in to the nuclear club in a few years, they can just walk in.”
An Iran with nukes: now, that's what you call an incendiary legacy!

Dumbo the Eliminationist

There's a delicious bit of serendipitous humour in the following:
Today, antisemitism is being stoked by self-described “resistance” groups and assorted other practitioners of leftist intersectionality. Under the guise of human rights and equality, social justice warriors recently gathered at a bookstore in Brooklyn’s Dumbo neighborhood to discuss “Freedom-Fighting Under State Repression.” At the very heart of the evening’s conversation was the evil of Zionism. 
The “blame-the-Zionists” conversation included disdain for America, law enforcement and capitalism. And, of course, no progressive conversation taking aim at Zionists is complete without advocating the demise of Israel.
The Israel-loathing SJWs met in the Dumbo neighborhood?!?

That's hilarious!

Perverse Nostalgia (And Really Bad Eats) In Berlin

How's this for a "fun" night out?:
Tucked behind 10-storey tower blocks in the heart of Berlin stands an imposing metal gate marked "Border zone, restricted area", guarded by a stern-looking Stasi officer.  
"Permits, please," visitors are told, as the gate cracks open to reveal a border post with another officer asking for identity papers - all part of a live event featuring "Good Bye Lenin!", the popular 2003 film set in communist East Germany. 
Organisers of the show have brought the defunct state to life in an old post office, and for seven nights at a hefty €30 per ticket, visitors can taste life in the grim authoritarian state before ending the evening with a screening of the film...
But wait, it gets better (i.e. worse):
Along the corridors decorated with commemorative Communist Party congress metal plates and portraits of former East German leader Erich Honecker, Stasi guards whisper conspiratorially. 
In a windowless room, a secretary is furiously typing documents, while a fake grocery store sells Eastern products like Bautz'ner mustard or toys featuring the cartoon character Sandman. 
And at a restaurant run by East German train caterer Mitropa, the menu features just three food options - gherkins and two hearty dishes ubiquitous in the former eastern bloc - solyanka, a thick Russian soup, and goulash. 
They can be washed down with Club Cola - the former German Democratic Republic's answer to Coke - or a luminescent green Gruene Wiese cocktail or Pfeffi schnapps, a pungent peppermint concoction.
All in all, think I'd rather pass a kidney stone.

The Trouble With Tarek Fatah

On the topic of jihadi terrorism and sharia law, Fatah is a reliable and brave observer. The trouble with Fatah is that, as a practicing (if "secular") Muslim, he is unwilling and/or unable to acknowledge that the problems re Islam stem, not from faulty "modern" interpretations, but from the religion's holy writ and from the requirement to follow the example of Islam's "perfect" founder. Fatah always feels the need to protect a core of the religion that he believes is holy and pure and true. Hence this bit of poppycock, from his latest Toronto Sun column:
In 1974, the Cornell-educated Indian Islamic scholar Hashim Amir-Ali translated the Qur’an and published it in its chronological order, the way it was revealed, as against how it was collated many years after the death of Prophet Muhammad. 
He wrote in the preamble: 
“The Qur’an is read parrot-like in most Muslim homes. … The religion that passes for Islam today – the Islam of the masses and of the ruling classes in every Muslim country – is the Islam of the Middle Ages and not exactly the Islam of the Qur’an or the Prophet. … The lines of thought laid down a thousand years ago have vitiated the entire course of Muslim thought and history. It is this legacy of the past that has to be faced today.”
Wrong.  The Islam of today is exactly the Islam of the Qur'an and the Prophet (a religion that was established in--yes--the Middle Ages). And, more than anything, that is the problem.

"It's a Real Good Thing You've Done, Mr. President"

Expecting Muslims to Condemn Muslim Terrorists Is Like Expecting "the White Community" to Condemn the Terrorism of White Supremacists

So says a chap named Abbas Kassam, who performs a deft (and daft) jihadectomy on Islamic doctrine here (link found on the NCCM site):
A current example of the persecution of truth and obfuscation of reality lies in the flawed assumptions and opinions about the Muslim community. Consider the demand on Western Muslims and their institutions to condemn acts of terror when committed by alleged Muslims in Western states (note that little demand exists for the condemnation of terror attacks outside of North America or Europe). Aside from the obvious critique that this assumes that Muslims are somehow opposed to or separate from their country of citizenship, this demand is based on flawed premises.  
The analogous situation of white supremacy extremism is illustrative. There appears to be no demand that the “white community” at large condemn violent acts/terrorism committed by white supremacists. This appears to be obvious for the simple reason that linking a large community together based on the beliefs of deviants who claim the supremacy of the community mischaracterizes the community and hands the platform to the deviants. Imagine the conjecture that the pinnacle of being white was being a white supremacist. Such a notion is harmful, not to mention lacks evidence. 
The same reasoning should apply to the Muslim community. Demanding that Muslims and their institutions condemn terrorism allows deviants to co-opt the image of the community as a whole. This is completely flawed. There is no collective will amongst the Muslim community for terrorism. There is no spectrum of religiosity in Islam the peak of which is violence. These are just commonly propagated falsehoods based on disproportionate focusing on deviants and a lack of understanding of Muslims and their institutions. Subjecting Muslims to a burden of proving deviants do not represent them creates the insatiable demand for condemnation.
Is the jihad imperative embedded in Islam's holy writ "deviant"? It would sure make it a lot better for all concerned (except, of course, for the jihadis) if it were. But since Islam has been into this sort of "deviance" from the time that its founder hightailed it out of Mecca, the notion that jihad is extrinsic to the religion is harmful, not to mention lacks evidence.

Jihadis Energized By a Supine Society and Its Bear Necessities

Anthony Daniels (who's probably better known by his pen name, Theodore Dalrymple), comments on a society's penchant for therapeutic stuffies (scroll down to "The teddy bear futures market"):
...A few years ago it came to light that police in Rotherham had for decades systematically turned a blind eye to the mass sexual abuse of children—at least 1,400 victims—by Muslim men. This type of willful neglect by the authorities came as no surprise to me. On the contrary, it is precisely what I would have expected.  
From all this the terrorists surely draw a great deal of comfort. It gives them the impression of living in a weak society that will be easy to destroy, so that their acts are not in the least nihilistic or pointless, as is often claimed. They perceive ours as a candle-and-teddy-bear society (albeit mysteriously endowed with technological prowess): We kill, you light candles. The other day I passed a teddy-bear shop, that is to say a shop that sold nothing but teddy bears. I am sure that terrorism is good for business, but the teddy bears are more reassuring for the terrorists than for those who buy them to place on the site of the latest outrage.

UK Police Release Photos of London Jihadis' DIY--and Bogus--Bomb Belts

From close up, they look absurd, because they're made--very badly, like some sort of jihadi elementary school science project--out of duct tape and water bottles. From a distance, though, and especially in the middle of a terrorist attack, they look genuine enough to engender "maximum fear"--which is exactly what they did.

The lesson here: you don't need high tech gadgetry to wreak maximum havoc. All you need is a rented van, some supplies you can find in any hardware store, and, of course, the will to wage jihad on unsuspecting infidels.

Update: Speaking of low tech, the jihadi who attacked police at Notre Dame Cathedral (he's said to be one of those "lone wolves," and a "novice," to boot) used a hammer.

"Trump's Particular Type of CEO Experience Is Now a Disabling Liability"

I agree. But it's not just that his management skills, such as they are, are not transferable to the presidency. It's that his personality traits--his arrogance, combativeness, hair-trigger temper and disinclination to heed wiser counsel--all but ensure that he'll be spending his entire time in office setting endless fires that his put-upon staff will labour mightily and often fecklessly to extinguish. (Will it continue to be a hot mess? Yes!)

Also--I don't think he's nearly as smart or as shrewd as he thinks he is. He's gotten a lot of mileage out of being a billionaire because, as per that line in the song "If I Were a Rich Man," "when you're rich they think you really know."

"Why Have So Many Jewish Leaders Put Their Weight Behind an Activist (Linda Sarsour) Whose Separatist Rhetoric Is Cloaked in the Flaccid Language of Human Rights?"

Good question, Mr. L. I think it's because, being on and of the Left, their perceptions are so skewed/warped/out of whack that they cannot tell their friends from their enemies.

"Shared Values"? Not So Much

This investigative TV show from last year sheds light on what British Muslims really think--and how much at odds it is with the non-Muslim populace. (By way of illustration: 36% of Muslims surveyed concurred with the statement, "Jews have too much power in Britain," while only 9% of non-Muslims agreed with it.)

Netanyahu: It's Time to Shutter UNWRA

I couldn't agree more. UNRWA has been stirring the pot and keeping it on the boil for many decades. It and should have been put out of business (including the business of aiding an abetting Hamas) years ago.

Denial On the Menu at First Ever "Fast In the 6"

"Thousands" of diversity-lovers are said to have shown up for last night's event held in front of Toronto City Hall," a first-of-its-kind celebration that organizers hope becomes an annual event." And, boy, were they ever high-fiving each other re the awesomeness of what no one there would dare admit was a supremacist religion which, in our time, has given rise to urban violence of the most horrific kind.

No, such truths were most definitely not on the menu at this love-in:
There was music, food, and special appearances by Mayor John Tory and Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland for the Fast in the 6 event in Nathan Phillips Square, which celebrated the breaking of the Ramadan fast. 
The evening was spearheaded by Toronto philanthropists Dany and Lisa Assaf, who say it took a year to plan, and initially started with the notion of hosting a Ramadan dinner in their backyard. 
"Part of the practice of Ramadan is to break your fast with friends, family, and enjoy food — and we thought, wouldn't it be great if we could do that for the whole city? Clearly our backyard's not big enough," Lisa Assaf said with a laugh...
Dany Assaf said part of the motivation for the event was to "change the channel" on negative portrayals of Muslims and Islam.
"We just wanted to share a great message of diversity and inclusion," he said.
This diversity, Tory echoed, is what sets Toronto apart from the rest of the world. 
"We're not perfect, but [there is] a lot to be said about how we live together here," he said. 
Were I a devotee of jihad, those are precisely the words that might encourage me to do something drastic. And the mayor's smug assurances aside, "diversity and inclusion" are concepts that never made it into Islam's holy writ.

"Shame On Those Who Tolerate Antisemitism When It Comes From Their Side of the Political Spectrum"

Alan Dershowitz takes some swipes at right wing Jew-haters but reserves the majority of his obloquy for those on his side of the political spectrum, i.e. the Zion-loathing Left.

Sheer Idiocy

That's the only way to characterize something like this:
About 80 people assembled outside the Manhattan offices of Senators Kirsten Gillibrand and Chuck Schumer on Tuesday night for a vigil in support of refugees. Over 20 synagogues in Manhattan were represented at the vigil, which was organized by a coalition of New York congregations in conjunction with HIAS. The vigil, one of 22 across the country, marked the 78th anniversary of the St. Louis being turned away from the United States. A second NYC vigil was held in front of Brooklyn Borough Hall.

The St. Louis carried 937 Jewish refugees who fled Europe expecting refuge in Cuba. The ship’s passengers held documents issued by the Cuban government, which were revoked a week before the ship set sail. The owners of the ship knew that the documents were no longer valid but the passengers were not informed until they reached Cuba and were not allowed to disembark. The refugees were eventually released in England, Holland, and Germany, but 254 of them were later killed in the Holocaust.          
It doesn't occur to these virtue-signalers that there are scores of Muslim countries in the world which could offer these refugees haven whereas the Jews on the St. Louis had literally nowhere to go. Also--the Syrian refugees they're so keen to embrace have been taught to hate Israel in particular and Jewry in general, including those Jews whose hearts bleed for them (and including the Jews aboard the St. Louis).

Jeremy Corbyn: Bad For the Jews and Horrendous for the UK

CBC radio, which is lefty to the core (and which I listen to when I'm walking the dog), has been running stories during the hourly newscast which tout Corbyn as the underdog to a Conservative (which, for the Ceeb, makes him all but irresistible). But a Corbyn at the helm would have horrific consesquences that our national broadcaster has no intention of detailing. Nor would the CBC ever mention anything like this:
Corbyn famously described Hamas and Hezbollah — two internationally condemned terrorist groups of a theocratic nature — as his “friends.” The assassination of Osama bin Laden at the hands of American special forces to him was a “tragedy.” He hosted in parliament Palestinian hate preacher Raed Salah and shared a stage with Dyab Abou Jajah, a Lebanese activist who said Europe had made “the cult of the Holocaust and Jew-worshiping its alternative religion.” Moreover, Corbyn donated money to an anti-Israel group led by a Holocaust denier and laid a wreath on the grave of a PLO terrorist involved in the 1972 Munich massacre of Israeli athletes. 
This week it emerged that he had attended a highly controversial anti-Israel rally at Trafalgar Square in May 2002 that included members of radical Islamist groups al-Muhajiroun and Hezbollah. According to reports, men of al-Muhajiroun were dressed as mock suicide bombers and held placards reading “Palestine is Muslim.” They chanted “Skud, skud, Israel” and “Gas, gas Tel Aviv,” along their support for al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden. 
Al-Muhajiroun is a banned terrorist organization which was led by high-profile Salafi militant Omar Bakri Muhammad and Anjem Choudary, a notorious British hate preacher and Islamic State recruiter, at the center of an international network of Islamic extremists. Their members have been linked to the 7/7 London bombings, the beheading of British soldier Lee Rigby, and the recent terrorist attack at London Bridge and Borough Market. 
This is the company he keeps and Corbyn, in his own words, has been “involved in opposing anti-terror legislation ever since 1983.”...
That's a track record that should--but, alas, won't--give every UK voter pause.

Syrian Refugee Knifes, Kills Psychologist in Germany

The psychologist worked with traumatized refugees at a Red Cross therapy and counselling centre, where the killing occurred.

Don't worry, though. Police ruled out terrorism lickety split, so the killer was probably just one of those mentally discombobulated—and not one of the jihadi—refugees.

Update: Hmm. I wonder which category, crazy or jihadi, this guy falls into:
The Islamist terrorist who attacked a police officer outside the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris on Tuesday was an award-winning journalist who previously worked as freelancer for Swedish public radio, Swedish media outlets reported on Wednesday. 
The suspect in the attack, 40-year-old Algerian-born Farid Ikken, is said to have moved to Sweden in 2004 after marrying a Swedish woman. 
On Tuesday afternoon, Ikken charged with a hammer at a police officer on patrol outside the iconic Paris cathedral. He was also, according to reports, carrying two knives. As he battered the officer, he shouted, “This is for Syria!” An armed police officer who was also in the area then fired two shots at Ikken, who was wounded and is currently being treated at a hospital.
Both? 

How Many Jihadis are Marrying Their Way Into the West?

That's a question we should be asking in light of the fact that one of the London Bridge terrorists appears to have done just that:
Shortly after their wedding in Dublin, Rachid is said to have returned to Morocco while his 33-year-old wife went back to London. 
She visited him in north Africa and said on Facebook that Casablanca was one of her favourite place - but it appears he hid his true violent and controlling nature until he had secure the right to live in the UK through her. 
Despite living apart the Irish authorities insisted their marriage was a genuine one and not to 'secure residency in this jurisdiction', a source told The Times. 
But an inquiry has now been launched to establish if Redouane duped his wife and wed her for immigration reasons.
Sounds to me like Irish authorities were more concerned about being accused of Islamophobia than they were about doing their job.

Anti-Anti-Semitism = Pro-Israel

That sort of thinking results in the cancellation of a French-German documentary about anti-Semitism.

Jihadi Terrorism a "Perversion" of Islam? What a Crock!

That, in a nutshell, is what Tarek Fatah wants to tell the mayor of London and the prime minister of the UK:
Here is my message to May and Khan: 
The London Bridge attack, the Kabul suicide bombing, the slaughter of Christians in Egypt and the attack by ISIS in tthe Philippines last week, as well as the Melbourne and Paris attacks on Tuesday, are all based on sharia Islamic law. All were carried out by Muslims inspired by the Qur’an. 
Fatah then cites one of the plethora of Qur'anic verses which today's jihadis are apt to take to heart:
It is from chapter eight entitled, The Spoils of War: 
Quran 8:12 - “I am with you, so strengthen those who have believed [Muslims]. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieved [non-Muslims], so strike [them] upon the necks and strike from them every fingertip.” 
Yowza, that is awfully dark, violent and bloodthirsty. But surely that was then and this is now, right?:
When confronted by critics to explain this call for beheading non-Muslims, Islamists and their apologists say this verse was revealed for a specific battle at a specific time during the life of Prophet Muhammad and is no longer applicable. 
However, the same Islamist clerics then return to their mosques to preach the same verse as part of Muslim prayrers. 
Hmm. Rather a mixed message at best. And not one I'd count on to dissuade a hot-headed young lad from offing some kafirs for Allah.

Niqab-Wearing ISIS Supporter Arrested After Threatening People With a Knife at a Toronto Canadian Tire

No "extreme vetting" taking in place in Canada, obviously:
A woman was arrested for threatening people with a knife at a Canadian Tire store in Toronto on Saturday, and Global News has learned she may have been wearing an ISIS bandana at the time. 
A source confirms the incident took place at Scarborough’s Cedarbrae Mall in the city’s east end. 
The woman was reportedly wearing a niqab and a bandana adorned with what appeared to be an Islamic State group symbol. 
A Canadian Tire employee told Global News on Tuesday the suspect attempted to attack a store worker with a golf club and then pulled out a knife. 
The suspect was eventually tackled inside the store and arrested by police, according to the source. 
Court documents obtained by Global News identified the suspect as Rehab Dughmosh. 
She faces multiple charges including one count of assault, two counts of assault with a weapon, two counts of possession with a weapon, carrying a concealed weapon and another for threatening death bodily harm.
Sound like Rehab Dugmosh needs some rehab due to bad dogma.

Update: She was screaming, "Allahu Akbar!"

Theresa May's "Joooish" Earings

It's blatant anti-Semitism--and a taste of terrible things to come should Hamas-supporter Corbyn prevail in the UK election.

By Their Dystopias Shall Ye Know Them

While some pundits tout The Handmaid's Tale and/or 1984 as the dystopian novels which offer the most insight into our troubled times, Bruce Thornton is confident that another work of fiction is a closer match:
Well into the second decade of Islamic jihad against the West, we all know the bloody script. In London, “radical jihadists” or “Islamist extremists” for the third time in a year went on a rampage, ramming pedestrians and slashing throats, and leaving seven dead and 48 wounded so far. Police immediately round up suspects they obviously could have snatched before the carnage. Prime Minister Theresa May blusters “enough is enough” and “terrorism breeds terrorism.” Politicians across the world issue rote “condemnations” of terrorism,” then go back to business as usual. Shrines of teddy bears, flowers, candles, and therapeutic bromides are the best the Brits can do in response to yet another act of a war they don’t even know they’re in. 
Welcome to the new normal for a Western civilization, content, like H.G. Wells’ Eloi, to party and consume in leisure and affluence until the Morlocks devour them.
Me? I think ancient history, and not any single work of fiction, holds some clues as to what could be in store for a decadent people suffering from civilizational ennui.

Guess Which Western Political Leader Is Calling for "Serious Conversations" With Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States Re Their Funding of "Extremists"

Hint: it is neither Theresa May nor Donald J. Trump.

Kharrum Butt: Ready for His Close Up

Kharrum Butt only had a bit part in the BBC documentary, The Jihadist Next Door. (That's him unrolling what looks like an ISIS flag, and sounding a lot like Sacha Baron Cohen's Ali G). Because he was obviously so "JV" (as an infidel with a soft spot for Islam once put it), Butt wasn't under police surveillance when, this past Saturday, he took on a starring role in Three Jihadis Wreak Havoc in London.

One wonders how many others true believers in the Beeb doc are also not on police radar. Maybe they should be placed there, and pronto.


Update: Another "JV" jihadi can be seen in the BBC doc. His name is Siddhartha Dhar (aka Abu Rumaysah), and he's the former "bouncy castle" entrepreneur who evaded authorities and ran off to Syria where he is said to have become new "Jihadi John."

In light of the recent spate of jihadi terrorist attacks, this, which appeared in the Daily Mail last year, is particularly galling and blood curdling:
Dhar, 32, was released on bail after his arrest in September 2014 and ordered to hand in his passport. He was a known supporter of banned groups, had links to hate preachers and was seen at Islamist rallies in London.

Dhar, also known as Abu Rumaysah, is believed to have met, and possibly mentored, Michael Adebolajo, one of the murderers of Fusilier Lee Rigby.

The father-of-four from Walthamstow was one of nine men detained on suspicion of encouraging terrorism and supporting the banned group Al-Muhajiroun.

But less than 24 hours after walking free, he took a coach from London to Paris and headed to the ISIS war zone with his young family.

Photographs have emerged of the British ISIS fanatic Siddhartha Dhar at a series of Islamist rallies in London, pictured here on the tenth anniversary of the 9/11 attacks outside the US Embassy in London

The former bouncy castle salesman later posted a picture of himself cradling his baby while brandishing an AK-47 to taunt security services whose blunders allowed him to escape.

Prior to posting the photo, Dhar taunted the police on Twitter for clumsily allowing him to slip through their fingers: 'What a shoddy security system Britain must have to allow me to breeze through Europe to the Islamic State.'  
He also boasted how he had fooled MI5: 'My Lord (Allah) made a mockery of British intelligence and surveillance. Make hijrah (flight) Muslims. Place your trust in Allah.' 
Prior to fleeing the UK, he also appeared live on the BBC and declared his support for ISIS. 

The Harder Side of Sears

The retail giant, currently in the throes of a death spiral, is flogging a line of intifada wear for Israel-loathers:
The shirts bear slogans including “Free Palestine”, “End Israeli Occupation”, “Free Gaza”, and Freedom For Palestine”.
What, no "From the River to the Sea, Palestine Shall Be Free"?

That one's a real crowd-pleaser.

More Drivel: "Terrorism Has No Religion"

Another week; another jihadi terrorist attack; another no-jihad-to-see-here comment piece claiming that "terrorism has no religion" (hat tip: MW):
Paris. Brussels. Sydney. Orlando. Manchester. Now, London. 
Since the rise of ISIS, there has been a seemingly continuous wave of attacks in several major western cities. With it, has followed a sharp rise in anti-Islamic sentiment, suggesting that perhaps there is now a clear-cut “clash of civilizations” between Islam and the West.  
This week’s tragic attack in London only fuels such a notion, that it truly is “Islam versus the West.” In the U.S., a drastic rise in anti-Islamic rhetoric has culminated in an unprecedented travel ban; in Europe, there’s been a rapid rise of right-wing parties squaring off against Islam as public enemy number one.  
But for Canadians, after the recent attack on a Quebec City mosque that killed six, we must know better than to let that become our narrative. The attack on the mosque in Quebec — just like the heinous attack in London — was a result of misguided people.  
In reality, terrorism has no religion.  
IRA, FLQ, Ku Klux Klan, ISIS. They’re all the same — terrorists motivated by socio-political goals, not spiritual aspirations. Militants, not men of faith...
I didn't know the IRA, FLQ and Ku Klux Klan were waging an eternal jihad (an exclusively Islamic concept). Did you?

Books For Wee "Progressives"

Feminist Baby? A Is For Activist?

How perfectly ghastly!

feminist baby II

Drivel

That's the best word I can think of for this:
Midway through Salt Houses—the stunning debut novel by Hala Alyan about four generations of Palestinian women navigating the travails of dispersion and diaspora—I had a disquieting realization of familiarity. I felt like I knew this story—and not because I knew the particulars of the story. Nor am I particularly well-versed in the history of Palestinian dislocation except as the aftermath, as the tragic countertext, of what I know and celebrate of Zionism and Israeli history.

Tariq Ramadan's Weasely Disinformation Campaign

The grandson of the man who co-founder the Muslim Brotherhood wants us to know that the "root cause" of terrorism isn't the jihad (a word he doesn't even mention). It's the West's "destabilizing" shenanigans in Muslim countries. Also to blame: the ongoing "oppression" of Palestinians.

And, of course, he wants you to know that the "real" victims du jour aren't the infidels (again, my word, not his) being murdered by jihadis (nope, he doesn't say that one either) in places like London and Manchester. It's the Muslims living in those places who are being targeted for hate crimes.

It takes a special sort of sang froid to shovel this crapola in the wake of recent jihadi antics in the UK, but Ramadan has proven that, when it comes to being an apologist for Islamic supremacism, he's got ice crystals in his veins.

Douglas Murray Was Prescient About Jews/Israelis Being the Proverbial Canary In the Coal Mine--Not That Anyone in the UK Was Listening

Murray wrote this back in August 2014 (my bolds):
Jews are attacked here in Britain, they are blockaded into a synagogue in Paris and the chant ‘Death to the Jews’ is heard in Germany for the first time in 70 years.

–– ADVERTISEMENT ––


But too few people seem to want to notice this or admit what it means. They think this is just about Israel, or just about Jewish people. It isn’t. It is about all of us.

The decision last month by the Israeli government to respond to Hamas rocket-fire from Gaza is the response any government would choose if rockets were fired at its citizens. The Israeli government has the right - as does any government - to stop the bombarding of its people. 
However, in recent weeks it has become plain that much of the world expects a different response from Israel. They expect Israel not to fight for the safety, security and survival of their people, but to lie down in front of the Islamic extremist enemy.    
The UK government has even - disgracefully - stopped selling some arms to Israel just when the country needs such weapons most.  But in expecting Israel to behave differently from the rest of us our societies and governments reveal far more about our own state than the State of Israel.

Because the truth is that behind the demands for Israel to lie down in front of its enemies is a fatal unwillingness of our own to face the problem which is in our midst.
No kidding. And now that the terrorism has spilled out of the coal mine, the Brits seem no more willing to face the problem (i.e. the jihad that imperils both Israel and the UK and, indeed, the entire West).

Update: Rachel Ehrenfeld seconds that conclusion:
As with the car and stabbing attacks on the Westminster Bridge on March 22, 2017, media reports on Saturday night highlighted the terrorists’ “new tactic” of using cars to mow down a large number of pedestrians, and knives to stab as many as they can. There is nothing new about this tactic. As with other forms of terrorism, the Palestinians used them first on Israeli civilians. Despite decades of advancing Palestinian terrorist tactics in Israel (suicide belts and vests, and car bombs with nails and screws, car mowing pedestrians, and stabbing, to name but a few), the political leadership of most Western nations seemed oblivious to the emerging patterns of Islamic terrorism. They failed to recognize their jihad against Israel for the deadly contagious disease they spread. This has been going on for decades. 
Bottom line: if you ignore the canary in the coal mine, you'll soon become a sitting duck.
