Death Cult Kids

Last night I watched the Google Video version of the documentary “Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West”. It’s a fascinating film, and I recommend it. It lasts more than an hour, so pop some popcorn and settle in to watch the whole thing. Warning: there are occasional graphic video sequences, including footage of the desecration of American corpses in Mogadishu and Fallujah, so viewer discretion is advised.

If you are a regular reader of Gates of Vienna, you won’t learn anything really new from this video. But all the compelling themes are there, drawn together in one neat package. It’s like a “Best of Jihad Watch“ in video format, with graphic accounts of Radical Islam in various trouble spots across the world. There are interviews with familiar faces, including Daniel Pipes and Sir Martin Gilbert.

Child propaganda on Palestinian TVOne of the prominent themes the movie focuses on is the depraved indoctrination of children into the Palestinian death cult. There were numerous clips taken from Palestinian television in which small children — one is three years old — talk excitedly about killing the Jews and becoming martyrs for Allah. In one such example, the little girl shown at right is shouting about martyrdom in what looks like a classroom, under the encouragement of a teacher.

Child propaganda on Palestinian TVWhen the camera pulls back from her at the end of her recitation, you can see the grotesquely incongruous cartoon figures of Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck, among others, on a wall in the background.

I don’t know about you, but that really gives me the creeps — to take the familiar icons of the nurseries of the West and use them as a backdrop for the indoctrination of children into the Islamic suicide-murder cult: Can you think of anything fouler than that?

Jihad BarneyI assume that Porky and Curious George and the other apes and pigs of the cartoon world were not included in the little jihadists’ school pantheon. But it made me wonder who else may be on that wall…

How about this one?

Rise and shine, kiddies!
Sing along with me:

Let’s get up and make the bed,
Get dressed and tie our shoes!
Eat our groats and brush our teeth
And then go kill the Jews!

Shahada time! Shahada time!
No greater goal have I!
I’ll blow myself to little bits
And make Crusaders die!

*   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *   *


Sometimes, when I’m confronted with a reality this horrific, the only way I can deal with it is through humor.

There are not enough millstones on the planet to hang round the necks of these people and cast them into the sea. Of all the abominations in the world, none is worse than the deliberate destruction of children. And, in case of the Palestinians’ idea of education, the destruction of childhood itself.

We’ve grown uncomfortable with moral language. Even if one is religious — which I am — it’s difficult to talk straightforwardly about atrocity. If these people are not evil, then the word “evil” has no meaning. The destruction of children goes beyond mere badness and sociopathy and enters a zone which can only be described with the vocabulary of theology.

I’ve written before about the current confluence of events as a “Demonic Convergence”, and if anything is demonic, “Palestine” surely is. An entire culture, possessed by demons.

Robert Godwin (a.k.a. Gagdad Bob, at One Cosmos) has written frequently about what he calls “mind parasites”. These are self-replicating mental structures passed on from generation to generation by disturbed people to their disturbed children. They are destructive memes, malware of varying virulence that infects the minds of its human hosts and does incalculable damage.

The public culture of the Palestinians is infected collectively with malevolent mind parasites. The infection started decades ago, but greatly accelerated after Oslo in 1993, when the Palestinian propagandists gained unfettered access to television in order to spread their virus. We are now well into the second generation of children reared on this vile mixture.

What happens if “peace” ever comes? What peace can these children ever know, even if by some miracle the gangsters running the Palestinian Authority decide to stop their jihad against the Jews?

A former officer of the Hitler Youth is interviewed for “Obsession”. He describes how difficult it was to overcome the intensive long-term Nazi indoctrination of his childhood. He also gives his opinion that the Palestinian indoctrination of children is much worse, and much more effective, than what was inflicted on him.

Can these children ever be deprogrammed?

Support for Israel in Eastern Europe


Pro-Israel demonstration in Warsaw Pro-Israel demonstration in Warsaw



One of the contributors at the Polish-language website Europa21 sent us these photos and this description of yesterday’s pro-Israel demonstration in Warsaw:

About 200-250 gathered in front of Warsaw’s main synagogue to show their support for Israel amid fighting in southern Lebanon that has gone on for nearly three weeks. People prayed for all victims of this war — both for Israelis and Lebanese. And there was a really great asmosphere — this demonstration was really for peace — and for all the people who suffered.There were no agressive slogans or songs. We were there to celebrate our hope for the future and for peace.

Last week a pro-Israeli demonstration took place in Kiev in Ukraine. About 5,000 people gathered to show their support for Israel.

For those who read Polish, here’s the link to the article in Europa21: “W Warszawie manifestacja poparcia dla Izraela”.

Black Gold

Oil WellsIn a couple of posts last week, when I was feeling cynical, paranoid, and pessimistic, I wrote about the possibility that the Saudis had shortened the Bush administration’s chain, and that the fix was in: a deal was being cut on Lebanon to satisfy the Desert Masters, and the screws were thus being appropriately applied to the Israelis by the Secretary of State.

My supposition was that the Saudis can control the price of oil at the margin by a modest lowering of their production, and the threat of such an action is enough to bring the leaders of the West to heel.

This assertion brought in a lot of interesting comments. One of our new commenters, “Economics” Scott (to distinguish him from “Armchair General” Scott), is entertaining and well-informed on the topic of oil production and distribution. I’m reproducing his various comments here, with some redaction for clarity:

Market Economics (more Saudi Royal Greed) don’t work on Paranoia Theory.

The Russians have been outproducing the Saudis 3 to 1 since the mid 1970’s.

Add in every tinpot dictator with oil, and the now, domestic concerns for drilling, They would all LOVE to get ahold of $5 per gallon gasoline and drill like hell.

Saudi Arabia oil ministers now, were alive in the kingdom the last two “World Oil Shortage Crises” 1979 and 1985 and weren’t really happy with the three stage outcome,

a)   retooling to more fuel efficient automotive/transport fleets by 250%
b)   Near unrestrained oil drilling wildcatting worldwide that more than doubled output/reserves
c)   switching to other fuels, coal, wood, co-generation, bio as in the case of Brazil, and the west & east diversifies its fuels and become less dependant.

Oil margins are volatile, so are the market economies of the west. Inflation adjusted, we are just getting back to market prices for oil we had in the early 1980’s $28/bbl in 1983 translates to $68-$70 barrel today.

The price in 1983 supported enormous wildcat exploration and brought known marginal fields BACK into production.

U.S. may have 30 billion barrels in known offshore fields yet to be drilled not to mention what is in the Santa Barbara Channel and the one year supply in Alaska.

Having said that, If the price is right worldwide, IT will be drilled. And the push worldwide for energy diversification would accelerate and cut into oil by up to 30% just that much faster — ultimately what the Saudis fear, (expect the 25,000 member Saudi Family to take up residence in the West sometime in the next half century)

Those who fear (the appeasers) an economic crisis like the early 1980s, the Saudis included, are mainly the bankers, investment houses, and those who trade in short term fear politically.

A deep recession of about a year, a lot of bankruptcies to squeeze out the record personal and business debt of the west would do a lot of good in the long run provided inflation could be held in check.

If Iran’s oil production could be destroyed as new oil fields come online at the end of that shortage, it would be beneficial.

Then Hezbollah gets starved, the Mullah thuggocracy gets starved, and there would likely be a short nasty civil war in Iran between elements of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard and the Regular Military for control of the nation’s internal assets. It might turn out good or bad. The Pasdaran has a lot of weapons.

But high oil prices are not a bad thing, just painful in the short run… like everything that is ultimately good for you after a hangover, like eating right and regular trips to the gym, it hurts but it does a world of good.

My Good Baron Bodissey —

You are fixated on this year’s “Spot Market Price”.

Lots of OIL, most, bbbbbbillions and bbbbillions will be bought and sold on long term contracts, not month to month, based on today’s tight supply price, which could stabilize at a higher price yet.

True, quintupling the price of the “marginal oil sold outside” long-term price would make it just too costly for those buying at their maximum energy budget to pay.

This would ease demand, prices would stabilize or moderate, find another 20% world reserve in oil supply and Iran is irrelevant. If you like then Dear Baron, invade or bomb them in the short run it won’t affect price as long as those Hormuz straits are secure.

But fear not, we lived through the “Peanut Farmer from Hell as President” who fired his whole cabinet in one night, Sheesh! then the next week… double digit interest rates, double digit inflation… and the rousing “Malaise Speech” and his Malaise Index because you weren’t feeling guilty enough for being an American. Leadership does matter, it IS the economy stupid.

Fear not! In four years, billions and billions of new reserves will have been found, drilled.

AND even more oil “reserves” engineered, I hear those Japanese hybrid cars are getting 50 mpg and they’re selling them to us at a loss, and still putting on a third shifts in that production line.

Here’s your back of the napkin Int’l Oil Supply and Demand lesson from Business Week.

World excess capacity at 2%? No wonder price is high and will stay there (dang that new Chinese Middle Class and Indian Yuppies discovered Toyotas and Hondas and Beemers).

New drilling will occur on a MASSIVE basis worldwide, want to get the HIGHEST paying Master of Science in the next five years, young man?

Drill West, young man.

If you’re truly so “werry worrwied”, you may want to learn how to farm forty acres; get a draft horse and a good mule …. as a personal economics go, consider it a long term investment in the future.

Oh, and be sure to stock up on NATO 7.62 ammunition, a few thousand rounds in your personal wine cellar ought to save you a lot of money when DEMAND goes way up.

My Dear Baron Bodissey;

You think capitalist pig democracies will cry uncle with a little too much pain.

Get ready for some more oil price pain — Short term that is …

Hugo is ruining some of the best reservoirs in the world … Through “Socialist Command Oil Engineering” e.g. he commands it to come out of the ground and to increase !

“From monitoring El Universal, A.M. Mora y Leon @ Publius Pundit surmises “that the U.S. needs to prepare for an oil cutoff from Venezuela” due to the “socialization” of that country’s oil industry, courtesy of Hugo Chavez: “[T]he country [is] running its oil industry into the ground with fires and accidents, something that’s never occurred until these Chavista years, a result of the firing and blacklisting of all of Venezuela’s talented and dedicated engineers and managers — who have since been replaced by Chavista operatives known for their political loyalty and not their expertise…”

More…

Expect wars and higher oil prices before they moderate.

Expect massive worldwide drilling. Prices have supported wildcatting for 6 months with only a 2% world pumping capacity as a buffer.

Dear Baron, sometime between 2010 and 2012 Expect 20% Excess Worldwide reserve capacity, then you can do anything your imperialist heart desires to Hugo Chavez and Mad Jad of Tehran as long as you keep those Straits of Hormuz open; it won’t affect oil prices or what the Saudis want much at all.

I’m a layman in economic matters. Although I have read Friedrich Hayek and Thomas Sowell and Walter Williams extensively, my eyelids droop and I tend to drowse off when the text drifts into heavy economic nomenclature.

As a result, all my assertions and opinions are inherently questionable.

Fortunately, we have some experts among our readers, including the formidable Starling David Hunter, so I am sure that my mistakes will be detected and corrected very quickly.

As far as the price of oil is concerned: Scott, I’m with you. Let it rise to the point that the market will bear, and then there will be enough to satisfy the demand. New reserves will be drilled or extracted from shale, or we’ll start converting garbage to fuel, or we’ll find alternative sources of energy. Things will be rocky for a while, but in the end we’ll all be better off.

But that’s from an economic standpoint. If economics were all that had to be considered, we would never have had subsidized ethanol, or oil price controls, or “windfall” taxes, or any of the other stupid productivity-suppressing stunts that the politicians are always foisting on us.

My point solely concerned the political impact of massive increases in gasoline prices.

Salaam, o Great Master!Come the first week of November, this Administration does not want voters to be paying $10 a gallon for gas. No incumbent congressman wants his constituents pulling the lever after paying $150 for a fillup in order to get to the polling station. A politician who allowed that to happen would be forcing himself into early retirement.

So, if I’m right about the Saudis being able to drive up the price of oil significantly by modest production cuts at the margin, and if they were to make not-so-subtle hints to the Bush administration that this was about to happen if the Israelis were to overrun Lebanon and destroy Hizbullah and the Assad regime, then… Well, I suspect that a “peace” deal would be cut rather quickly.

The Israelis lose another pound of flesh; Kofi Annan presides over the process; smiling photo-ops are put together for all the leaders involved; the NYT gives it breathless coverage — you know the drill; we’ve been through it all so many times before. It makes me sick to my stomach just imagining it.

I’m mad as hell!Now: if something like this is not going on, then:

  • Why is this administration so embarrassingly obsequious towards the Saudis?
  • Why do our tough-on-terror leaders gush over those disgusting thugs?
  • Why does Karen Hughes humiliate herself (and our country) by her supplications?
  • Why did Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice call Islam “the religion of peace and love”? That was excessive behavior, way beyond any requirement of diplomatic tact.
  • Why did it take so long to get rid of the Wahhabist chaplains in the military?
  • Why did some of the most odious “charities” retain their White House access long after 9-11?
  • Why no public denunciation of Saudi Wahhabist funding of anti-Semitic and anti-Christian propaganda in mosques in the USA?
  • And, maybe most importantly: why did the entire bin Laden family get a free ride out of the country on 9/12, with barely a question asked of them?

I’m willing to entertain some rational and diplomatically expedient reasons for the above behavior. But Occam’s razor tells me that it must be the ability of the Saudi regime to put a thumb on the jugular of the world’s oil supply.

And, contrary to what the Halliburton-hating moonbat Left would have us believe, high oil prices do not appreciably benefit the oil companies. They do not make significant additional profits, because most of the extra money goes into the pockets of King Abdullah and Mad Jad and Prince Hugo. The constriction of demand that accompanies higher prices is not useful to businesses that sell oil for a living.

What the oil companies (and governments and banks) want is price stability. Let the price go up if it needs to, and then stay there for a nice long time. Price fluctuations discourage investment, exploration, and new technologies, because nobody has any good idea whether the expenditures will bear fruit when they mature in two or five or ten years’ time.

And price stability is what the nutcase Islamist regime in Iran seems determined to prevent. My guess is that the Saudis would like nothing better than nice, stable, moderate oil prices, so that they can continue to buy their booze and their blondes and their Ferraris without worrying that some wildcat Texan is going to figure out how to extract oil from sand in a cost-effective manner and put them right out of business.

OK, boys: now tell me all the different ways I’m wrong. I’m ready to hear it.

Jihad in Seattle

Shooting at Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle“I am a Muslim American, angry at Israel.”

That’s pretty clear. Unequivocal, right?

That’s what the alleged murderer at the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle said yesterday when he opened fire on the building’s employees.

But that’s not what the FBI calls “terrorism”:

“We believe … it’s a lone individual acting out his antagonism,” said David Gomez, an FBI assistant special agent in charge of counterterrorism in Seattle.

[…]

Gutt said the FBI is helping Seattle police assess whether the gunman was a “lone wolf” or part of a wider plan. If evidence of a terrorist plot evolved, the FBI would become the lead agency, but as of Friday night the case remained Seattle’s, Gutt said.

Dymphna has been ill and out of the loop, so I was filling her in on the news tonight over dinner. I explained how it was like pulling teeth to get the police and the FBI to utter the word “Muslim”, and how they were bending over backwards to keep the dreaded T-word out of their statements.

“Well,” she said, “Is it really terrorism when a guy is just acting on his own like that?”

I said, “Considering that Zawahiri just issued his call to all the Muslims of the world for jihad against the Jews, is it a coincidence that this Islmaist wacko starts shooting Jews in Seattle? It may not be terrorism, but it sure as hell is jihad.”

“Well,” she said, “I’d agree with that.”

So let’s call it what it is: Jihad. Part of the Great Islamic Jihad.

Without orders from Jihad Central, without direction from above, without being a part of cell in a terrorist cell, a murderer was performing jihad, according to the dictates of the Koran. Murdering Jews for Allah.

“Terrorism” isn’t the issue. The issue is Jihad.

Eteraz’ Doppelganger

A zealous Islamist, who is also Ali Eteraz’ cousin, seems to have hacked into his blog:

Today my apostate cousin Eteraz is further expressing his idiocy by arguing that attacking Jews is a bad thing. This, after he argued that Jews aren’t apes and swine! He clearly does not want to be part of Hizbollah. That’s fine with me: just means I don’t have to share my cool Islamic green colored Hizbollah jacket with him (the jacket being the sole reason I joined them). I am beginning to think that Eteraz has turned into a Jew. But I did not notice his nose grow larger so maybe he is turning a Jew from the inside. Then again, he is Punjabi, and as such, his nose is quite large already; so perhaps he has always been a Jew! Astaghfirullah!

This cousin is very amusing, even while daring to insult Dr. Sanity. See: Ali Eshtehar on Infidel Doctor of Insanity.

Toys for the Bomb Shelters

Bomb shelter in HaifaFor the last two weeks many residents of northern Israel have been living in bomb shelters as Hizbullah’s rockets continue to strike. Life in the shelters is a deadening combination of fear and tedium, and young children are particularly hard-hit by these circumstances.

Carl in Jerusalem has passed on this note he received from the owner of an Israeli toy company who has organized an effort to help children in the shelters:

As the owner of www.toystore.co.il I am leading my own personal campaign to send thousands of dollars worth of toys to the children of Northern Israel. Instead of enjoying themselves in summer camp, the Israeli children living in Northern Israel are currently spending long tense days in their local bomb shelters. There is a huge need for toys and games to keep them occupied.

As of Friday, July 22, we have distributed over $12,000 of toys. Some of the recipients of our donations have been Rivka Ziv Hospital in Safed (Tsfat), city wide Community Centers in Safed, the Merom HaGalil Regional Council (who has distributed to their 24 towns and villages), and city wide Community Centers in Tiberias.

We are supplying all the toys and games at cost plus 10% to cover expenses.

On most of the toys sent up last Friday, www.ToyStore.co.il was able to obtain a 30% discount on WHOLESALE prices. So the donations really went a long way.

I really wish that this project were unnecessary. But as the war drags through it’s second week, I have received many phone calls requesting toy and game donations.

To make a donation, simply go to my website www.toystore.co.il , order a gift certificate for the amount you want to donate, proceed to the checkout and write “Donate Now” in the window marked “Special instructions for your order”. Please include your name, telephone number and email address.

Thank you very much,

Shaky Pork Withdrawal

Pork BustersThe Club for Growth has published the record of the Porkers who reside in the hallowed halls of The House of Representatives. It does not look good:

Thanks to Congressman Jeff Flake’s 19 anti-pork amendments, we now have every House member on record regarding their positions on earmarks. Before now, House members have been able to avoid scrutiny because their pork was co-mingled with other projects and tucked into the dark corners of big spending bills. Or they were able to withstand the scrutiny because they were attacked as a whole chamber and not directly attacked themselves.

But because of Flake’s amendments, they were recently forced to cast up-or-down votes on specific projects. They could no longer deflect attention.

The reaction by Congressional leaders is telling. These guys see the hand-writing on the wall (thank a teacher, someone). Here’s their statement, issued earlier this week:

The following statement was issued today by House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL), Majority Leader John Boehner (R-OH), and Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier (R-CA):

“The House-passed lobbying and ethics reform bill includes a series of significant reforms meant to bring greater transparency and accountability to the congressional earmarking practice. House Republicans are committed to extending these reforms to all committees and implementing them during the current session of Congress, before any spending or tax bill for the upcoming fiscal year goes to the President’s desk.

“After Labor Day, the House is likely to consider, among other items, a number of important appropriations conference reports for the upcoming fiscal year. If the House and Senate have not produced a final lobbying and ethics reform conference report by the time we return from our August district work period in September, the House will move to immediately adopt and implement a comprehensive earmark reform rules change independent of the ongoing lobbying and ethics reform discussions to ensure these new rules apply to all spending and tax measures that will go to the President’s desk this fall.

“The American people want meaningful change in the way in which Congress spends their money. House Republicans are committed to delivering this change.”

Notice they do not commit themselves to going clean. See, they know they can handle it, so they’ll just earmark a little bit. They can handle pork, see. No need to quit entirely. Have your ever seen the list of questions that Alcoholics Anonymous uses — or used to use — to ascertain if your drinking is out of control? This questionnaire, developed by a psychiatrist dates, back to 1930. There are newer ones now, but this one is instructive, especially if you substitute “earmarking” for substance abuse. In this questionnaire, you only have to answer three or four items positively to be squarely in “the-guy-with-a-problem” category:

1.   Do you lose time from work due to your drinking porking? ( i.e., are you away from the office being wined and dined by the hordes of lobbyists on the Hill?
2.   Is drinking making your home life unhappy? (is anyone back in your district muttering about fiscal responsibility?)
3.   Do you drink because you are shy with other people? (how much courage does it take to say “NO!” to your peers’ earmarks?)
4.   Is drinking affecting your reputation? (are you going to have to fend off questions about your fiscal restraint or lack of it in the coming election?)
5.   Have you ever felt remorse after drinking? (bet you do, especially if you voted for that bridge in Alaska)
6.   Have you gotten into financial difficulties as a result of your drinking? (i.e., have you raised concerns about our deficit spending?)
7.   Do you turn to lower companions and an inferior environment when drinking? (you know, those sleazy lobbyists with their come-on, bedroom eyes)
8.   Does your drinking make you careless of your family’s country’s welfare?
9.   Has your ambition decreased since drinking? (or has it increased? Or, are you looking at the possibility of another line of work if you get fired for excessive porking? See question 7: you may end up as a lobbyist)
10.   Do you crave a drink at a definite time daily? (that is, when you go without earmarking for too long, do you suffer withdrawal effects?)

To use the terminology of the Platonists and Christian theology, our congressmen are suffering from a disordered appetite, a poorly-developed faculty of reason, and a problem with their God-given will power.

Time for citizens to help them recover their spiritual side so they can stop RUNNING THIS COUNTRY INTO THE GROUND! As you know, the first step is to admit that the problem is bigger than you are. Surrender would be tremendously difficult for a politician.

As much as I admire our Congressman, Virgil Goode, he failed the Pork test. This is very sad, considering that several years ago he’d moved from the “wuzzadem” category to the right side. But he’s been voting fiscally left. That hurts.



UPDATE: Here is the voting record for all the congressional representatives in Virginia:

1 Davis, J R 3
2 Drake R 0
3 Scott R 0
4 Forbes R 0
5 Goode R 0
6 Goodlatte R 0
7 Cantor R 3
8 Moran D 0
9 Boucher D 0
10 Wolf R 0
11 Davis, T R 3

In the overall rankings of states who benefit most from pork, Virginia doesn’t fare so well: it’s #32, with a per capita pork chop of $26.19.

2006 Rank State 2006 Pork Population Per Capita 2005 Rank Change
1 Alaska $325,106K 663,661 $489.87 1 0

5 N. Dakota $78,537K 636,677 $123.35 7 2

Read it and weep, knowing that the confiscatory tax rate you are paying is going to fund things like the International Fund for Ireland, which received $13.5 million dollars, including monies for the World Toilet Summit. Follow the link to Ireland’s funding and read the long, long list of oinkers. Something has to be done. Anything from “throw the rascals out” to a flat tax would suit me fine.

This is beyond scandal. To lift a phrase from the Baron, this is Pork Porn.

Give Me Hilarity or Give Me Death!

Hezb Cola - the ceasefire that refreshes!Yesterday’s humor post prompted a number of responses from readers, offering their own jihad-related humor for our enjoyment.

There are a lot of good links in the comments section of the post, too many to list here. Take a look at them if you feel like having a good laugh.

But I want to pass on a couple of audio links that came in by email. First there’s a 15-second commercial spot for Hezb Cola by Karridine, the resident genius at Brain Surgery With Spoons. Expect to hear it on the radio tonight, jammed between the latest hits from Eminem and Madonna on your favorite Top 40 station!

Second is “Patrick Henry” who has composed some snappy little numbers that you really don’t want to miss. His most recent is “Hey, Bin Laden”, which is too short to quote from without spoiling the jokes.

But here’s a snip from an earlier masterpiece called “It’s in the Koran”:

We’re happy to torture
We’re eager to rape
We savor your last screams
On videotape
We massacre children
We ransack a shrine
And all our acts are sanctified
By Suras 2 through 9

Make sure to listen to the energetic tunes that go with these lyrics — they’re great.

Being a clearinghouse for Mock-the-Muslims humor is a job that I can enjoy.

Norwegian Authorities Still Covering Up Muslim Rapes


The Fjordman Report

The noted blogger Fjordman is filing this report via Gates of Vienna.




There has been a spike in the number of rape charges in Scandinavia in recent years. It has reached near epidemic proportions in Sweden. Although there are indications of a very high percentage of Muslim immigrants on the statistics, as it is with other kinds of crime, immigration is a non-issue for the political establishment a few weeks ahead of the Swedish national elections.

In neighboring Norway, there is an unprecedented rape wave in the capital city of Oslo. “We have to be realistic. A series of rapes have made Oslo unsafe during the summer,” says Brit Opjordsmoen from DIXI, support centre for rape victims. “When we know that there are rapists on the loose in Oslo, we have to listen to advice from the police. They are right in warning women against going home alone at night.”

Opjordsmoen thinks it is astounding that Minister of Justice Knut Storberget gives advice contrary to that of the police, encouraging women not to change their behavior. “Ideally, we can all agree that girls should be able to move around freely, but we have to be realistic. Society is not like that. Many girls are too naïve, we have to be careful and watch out. Several rapes assaults in a short period of time is unusual,” says Opjordsmoen.

According to the support centre, rapes are usually committed by a person known to the victim. The peculiar thing about the many rapes in the city of Oslo now is that they are rapes by ambush, committed by strangers against women on their way home from a bar or in areas with little traffic. “We have seen a dramatic increase [in the number of rapes],” says Endre Sandvik, head of the emergency ward. The number of rapes in Oslo this summer is more than twice as high as it was last year.

In a questions and answers session with newspaper Aftenposten’s readers, Opjordsmoen has some politically correct comments, saying that they don’t know what percentage of these rapes are committed by people with immigrant background, and that much of these speculations is just “prejudice.”

Immigrants protest in OsloWith all due respect, I’m pretty sure that’s incorrect. Just a few weeks earlier, Aftenposten warned that “youths” are in the process of destroying Norway’s capital city, Oslo. Upon closer inspection, it turned out that these “youths” bear a striking resemblance to the same “youths” with Muslim immigrant background that are destroying so many cities across Western Europe. I know Norwegian girls that have experienced harassment by gangs, and it almost always involves Muslims: Turks, Kurds, Arabs, Pakistanis, and Somalis.

A 17-year-old Somalian was convicted of the rape of a young girl in Oslo one year ago. The court stated that the rape was unusually brutal and lasted for several hours. The Somalian choked the girl for so long that the medical doctor who examined the girl said that she could have died. The girl is now suffering from severe psychological problems in the aftermath of the attack. The youth was sentenced to four and half years in prison. The sentence also included another rape, where his Norwegian-Moroccan friend raped a 13-year-old girl whilst the Somalian helped to threaten her and keep guard. She has been traumatized from the incident.

However, Aftenposten seems conveniently enough to have forgotten an article they printed five years ago. In 2001, two out of three charged with rape in Norway’s capital were immigrants with a non-western background according to a police study. Norwegian women were victims in 80 percent of the cases.

Unni WikanUnni Wikan, a professor of social anthropology at the University of Oslo, in 2001 said that “Norwegian women must take their share of responsibility for these rapes” because Muslim men found their manner of dress provocative. The professor’s conclusion was not that Muslim men living in the West needed to adjust to Western norms, but the exact opposite: “Norwegian women must realize that we live in a Multicultural society and adapt themselves to it.”

The numbers published in September 2001 were discussed in at least to out of Norway’s three largest newspapers: Aftenposten and Dagbladet. A leading member of the Liberal Party (Venstre), Odd Einar Dørum, demanded that all the numbers should be put on the table: “A scumbag is a scumbag, regardless of skin color”.

From 2001 to 2005, Dørum was Minister of Justice, and yet nobody has seen these statistics since 2001. The number of rape charges in Oslo has continued to rise, reaching record levels in 2005. There is ample evidence of brutal gang rapes, something that used to be rare in Scandinavia, being committed by immigrants against native girls. For instance, 21st of July 2005, three men were charged with gang raping a 15-year-old Norwegian girl, who was dragged into a car while waiting for a bus at the bus station in the town of Fredrikstad. All the men were of “foreign origin”. Such cases have become almost routine. The only possible explanation for why we are no longer presented statistics showing the percentage of immigrants involved in this is that the authorities are covering it up. Usually, this would have made the media call for the government’s resignation. This has not happened, although I know several journalists have been reading the posts I have made about this topic, both in English and in Norwegian.

RinkebyIn Sweden, ethnologist Maria Bäckman, in her study “Whiteness and gender,” has followed a group of Swedish girls in the suburb of Rinkeby outside Stockholm, where native Swedes have been turned into a tiny minority of the inhabitants due to rapid immigration. Bäckman relates that several of the girls she interviewed stated that they had dyed their hair to avoid unwanted attention and sexual harassment. They experienced that being blonde involves old men staring at you, cars honking their horns and boys calling you “whore.”

A report from organization Save the Children tells of how being a young Swedish girl today means feeling unsafe. The girls are scared of being raped, a possibility that appears very real to them. Many girls are planning how to go home at night, how to pretend to be talking on the mobile phone, how to keep their keys in their hand to defend themselves or how to simply run all the way home. Both the fear and the choice of strategies indicate that many girls feel genuinely unsafe outdoors during certain hours of the day. The fear is well founded. A striking number of girls have experienced harassment from boys or men. Most frequently, the harassment comes from boys of the same age as the girls. Being called “whore” has become so common in some schools that several of the girls say the teachers no longer react to this.

TenstaTensta is a suburb in northern Stockholm with a very high concentration of Muslim immigrants. Actress Ylva Törnlund has visited several schools in Tensta, and was alarmed by the harsh atmosphere she discovered there. “The attitudes we meet in the schools are frightening. One boy talked about how girls should be f**ked to pieces until they bleed,” Törnlund said.

This trend is not exclusive to Scandinavia. It is the same all over Western Europe wherever we find significant numbers of Muslim immigrants. In fact, the number of rapes committed by Muslim immigrants in Western nations is so extremely high that it is difficult to view them only as random acts of individuals. It resembles warfare. German journalist Gudrun Eussner considers this to be “sexuality as a weapon against disobedient and non-Muslim women, both categorized as “unbelievers”. Against them jihad is the duty, and what to do with women “conquered” in jihad, this may be read in the Qur’an: they become slaves to be used by the victors.”

Pierre RehovFrench filmmaker Pierre Rehov states that: “A friend of mine is a retired chief of police, who used to be in charge of the security of a major city in the south of France. He reported to me that his men had to face an average of 10 rapes a week, 80% made by Muslim young men. 30% being what we call, in French, a “tournante,” meaning that the victim is being raped by an entire gang, one after the other, often during an entire night.” “He was astonished that, in most cases, the parents not only would back up their rapist children, but also would not even understand why they would be arrested. There is an instant shift in the notion of good and evil as a major component of culture. The only evil those parents would see, genuinely, is the temptation that the male children had to face. Since in most cases the victims were not Muslims, the parents’ answer and rejection was even more genuine: how could their boys be guilty of anything, when normally answering to a provocation by occidental women, known for their unacceptable behavior?”

According to Rehov, “I can see in any raping of a non-Muslim woman by a Muslim male a racist action, and it is high time for us to acknowledge and condemn it. The level of contempt towards non-Muslim women is the reflection of the level of hatred towards the society which creates equality between men and women.”

In Norway, it is probably unprecedented in the thousand years since the city of Oslo was founded at the end of the Viking Age that the indigenous population is being attacked on such a large scale for the sole reason of being white and Christian. And the government is doing… well, pretty much nothing really, except for hiding the problem as much as possible. This isn’t good enough. I have earlier called for the resignation of Swedish PM Göran Persson for his government’s total inability to protect a population that pays the highest taxes in the world. Perhaps the time has come for calling for the resignation of Norwegian PM Jens Stoltenberg and his cabinet, too.

If they want to stay in power, they should immediately double if not triple the amount of police officers in the streets, and they should end the Multicultural experiment and stop Muslim immigration completely, if necessary by withdrawing from the UN Convention for Refugees and other international treaties, pulling out of the Schengen Agreement and re-establish genuine, national and popular control over immigration.

We are tired of hearing nonsense about “Islamophobia” and xenophobia while our children live in fear of Islamic terrorism and our daughters cannot go home after dark out of fear of gang rapes by Muslim youngsters who view them as whores. The purpose of the state is to uphold law and order and maintain the nation’s borders and territorial integrity. Western European governments are doing neither, yet are busy with political censorship and interfering with details of our private lives where they have no business.

It’s time they are reminded that they are our servants, not our rulers. If they will not fulfill their duties, they need to be replaced by somebody who will.

SOS From Pakistan

Gates of Vienna received the following email from Miss Kelly:

I received an e-mail earlier today from a Pakistani woman whose relative was killed as an honor killing by family members. The family and the police are covering up the murder as a suicide. This woman feels that her life is in danger now, and she desperately needs help. I believe her e-mail is genuine. If you know of an organization or personal contact in Islamabad that can help her (obviously, NOT the police), please send the contact information to me at misskelly99-at-gmail.com. Please keep her in your prayers. Thank you very much for your help.

Does anyone know of Pakistani organizations who provide refuge for women? Considering that the abuse of women in Pakistan stands at about 70% (last time I checked the Human Rights Watch stats some months ago), there must be some ngo set up to help in such cases.

But maybe not.

Using Ridicule as a Bunker Buster

Ridicule is a powerful weapon in the arsenal of Western Civilization. The most crucial part of the struggle against the Great Islamic Jihad takes place in the media of the West itself. This is an information war, and the Jihad has a distinct advantage, since large sections of Western media are willing (even eager) dupes of the mujahideen. Hizbullah’s use of civilians as shields and camouflage, followed by the feeding of photos and video footage of the inevitable carnage to media outlets, is just the latest example of the ruthless and shrewd manipulation of the West’s information systems by the Islamists.

But we have a weapon unavailable to the jihadis: humor. Islam is humor-impaired, and necessarily so, since ridicule and satire are a threat to its very foundation. The Islamists are unable to respond in kind — have you ever noticed how relentlessly stupid their “Zionists and Crusaders” jokes are?

The Great Jihad has no defense against being made fun of.

So — let’s mock them copiously and frequently:

  • Borrow this graphic and all the other ones at Gates of Vienna, and share them.
  • Design your own satires.
  • Tell Palestinian jokes.
  • Display the Motoons on your blog.
  • Photocopy satirical images and articles and post them wherever the PC police will allow you to.

Above all, keep laughing at the Islamists. It’s not hard to do.

Yes, Dallas, It’s "Texas Pulled Pork Bar-b-q"

Earlier this week, I posted about the sneak attack on Jeff Goldstein. From out of the blue he was assaulted by deadly falafel balls and then his assailants escaped on Vespas before he was able to retaliate.

The incident got me to thinking: what would be the perfect response? After pondering it a bit, I came up with what I deemed the perfect (and thereby disproportionate) response retaliation for this small battle in the Long War.

What I had in mind was hitting them with some Texas-style barbeque sauce on pulled pork. I should have said parenthetically that this was mixing cuisines since pulled pork is mostly North Carolina and Tennessee. But I needed the pork for my retaliation, and I needed that goopy, viscous Texas sauce, too. So I combined ’em.

Big mistake. Texans came out of the woodwork to remind me that there ain’t no such thing as “Texas pulled pork”. I hate it when people spoil a good story by insisting on verisimilitude. So I wrote an update to the post, which the Baron liked so much that now I’m doing this uber-update, which pushes further up the page my response to those who wrinkled their nose at the idea of my saucy dish.

You might want to go to the link above to see Jeff Goldstein’s original story and my response. Then, what follows below is a copy of my flailing response to those Texans. Just consider it a coda to the first flights of fanciful revenge.

And if that’s clear, you’re a genius.

By the way, do you think anyone will ever google “Texas Pulled Pork Bab-b-q”? Sure would beat all those searches we get for “make a b0m” — mostly from abroad, by the way. Not too many b*mb-builders here. Or at least they don’t use Google for advice.



UPDATE: A reminder for all of y’all nit-pickin’ Texas commenters and e-mailers out there:

Satire doesn’t have to be accurate, just amusing. Yes, I know Texas “don’t pull pork”; y’all tend to be beef people, anyways. However, my dilemma was that pulled pork usually has thin North Carolina sauce, which, while very good, is not viscous enough to really gum up the works of the fleeing Vespas.

When faced with a choice of humor over reality, I always choose the former. Fortunately, there are enough non-Texans out there who wouldn’t notice my sleight of hand…or wouldn’t have if you guys hadn’t had to tromp onstage in your boots and stop the story in the name of accuracy…

Pulled pork with Texas sauceA pox on reality. Do you *really* think Mr. Goldstein was attacked with great balls of falafel? Of course not. For my purposes, this particular batch of pulled pork with its viscous Texas-style sauce continues to slop around in its tin tub aboard the helicopter — which is chasing the Vespas, who now realize that Fate is about to descend upon them in the form of a haram End to It All.

Oh, wait a minute! it’s not a helicopter carrying the tub, it’s flying pigs. Yes, that’s it: Texas pulled pork barbeque sloshes in a galvanized tin tub, which is being carried aloft by Mighty Flying Pigs. I can see it now, as they inexorably catch up to the Vespas, the latter desperately putt-putting down the dirt road while bits of rust fly off, making the Vespas lighter with each mile. Suddenly, from on high, …SPLOPPP!!![followed by a tin tub bonging into the underbrush like a broken liberty bell, while the feathery swish of flapping swine wings recede, and garbled Arabic cursing rises in the background]. Blue-helmeted guys with large towels — *Turkish* terrycloth towels, mind you — and Vespa repair manuals saunter in, stage left…

meanwhile, stage right, enter annoyed Texans in big boots who proceed to stomping on the sauce.

Everybody’s got their priorities.

Reaping the Wind

El Jefe Maximo has tipped us to the following AP story:

AnemometerIranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad warned Tuesday that the conflict between Lebanon and Israel could trigger “a hurricane” of broader fighting in the Middle East.

Ahmadinejad’s nation is a major backer of the Hezbollah militant group and a sworn enemy of Israel. In his comments, he referred to a proverb that says: “He who raises the wind will get a hurricane.”

“That proverb fully relates to the Middle East, which is a very volatile region,” he said. “And it will be a strong hurricane which will strike really hard.”

El Jefe adds this comment:

Mad Jad is saying that things are going to happen, or that, if they do, nobody should be surprised, because we all have “hurricanes” coming. In particular, I think Mad Jad’s use of the term “hurricane” – supposedly AP tells us, from a proverb – interesting. I hope Homeland Security is on alert.

Is India feeling some of the premonitory breezes from the coming storm? According to a story in The Times of India (warning to readers — expect numerous popup ads at this site):

US embassy put on terror alert

The next few days are likely to be very tense for the US embassy here. For a top IB official has sent a letter to security agencies with a chilling message the American embassy is expected to be targetted any time between now and July 30 by terrorists owing allegiance to an Iranian terror group.

This intelligence input has already sent security agencies scampering to plug real or imagined weaknesses in the security ring around the mission. Sources revealed on Monday that the input was received early last week and has been circulated among all security agencies in Delhi, including the police and paramilitary forces.

“The US embassy has been on an extremely high state of alert and things will remain the same for the next few days. The input has even identified one of the men likely to participate in the attack and efforts are on to establish his presence,” said a source.

[…]

“The threat is that they would launch an all-out assault in the nature of a ‘fidayeen’ attack. The security review was done in keeping with this possibility,” said the official. According to the input, the Iranians in the group of 20 are associated with a Iran terror group comprising terrorists who earlier backed Saddam Hussein.

The alert has also left many wondering if international terrorist groups are trying to join hands with Kashmir terror groups. The letter specifically mentions that people of Kashmiri descent are expected to help the Iranians and Afghans carry out the attack. [emphasis added]

I saw a story yesterday about some Christian groups who interpret current events in the Middle East as a sign of the imminent arrival of the End Times.

Mad Jad’s haloBut the problem isn’t the Christian chiliasts, it’s the Islamic ones, particularly Iran’s ruling Shi’ite oligarchy. They believe the Millennium is about to arrive, that the Twelfth Imam will soon appear to usher in the End, and that they are his appointed assistants.

And they are about to acquire nuclear weapons, while we dither around with the EU and the UN and the IAEA and Iran’s lapdog, Mohammed El Baradei.

I swear, we’re as nutty as Mad Jad, in our own way.

Just look at the anemometer spin!

The Word From Mr. Hyde

I have a split personality when it comes to geopolitical issues. My Dr. Jeckyll is a naïve optimist, tends to believe what people say, and assumes good motives on the part of other people. My Mr. Hyde is suspicious and paranoid, looking for the secret and devious true story beneath all the surface gloss.

Yesterday my paranoid side was active when I said, concerning Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice’s trip to Lebanon and Israel, “The fix is in.”

Well, today’s hot-off-the-presses AP story doesn’t do anything to ease my paranoia:

The United States has given Israeli forces between 10 and 14 days to finish dealing Hezbollah “a strategic blow,” a senior Israeli Foreign Ministry official told FOX News, as both Israeli forces and Hezbollah guerrillas continued to volley rockets across the Lebanon-Israel border.

Mr. Hyde says:

Sheikh Hassan NasrallahA deal has been cut. Saudi Arabia’s hand was hovering over the oil spigot, so Israel’s chain has been duly yanked tight around its neck.

If he’s right, then Hizbullah will live to fight another day, and that is a huge, huge, victory for Sheikh Hassan Nasrallah. Lebanon will be completely in his thrall after all the dust settles.

And we, the defenders of Western Civilization, will live to rue the day that we did not give Israel a chance to finish the job.
