I don’t wanna like her. OK, the fact is I don’t like her. But I gotta give the she-devil her due on this one:
Former President Jimmy Carter and former Finnish President Martti Ahtisaari were hoping to visit the State Department this week to brief officials on their recent trip to North Korea, but nobody at the State Department was available to meet with them…
It’s no secret at all that the Elders’ trip to North Korea was viewed as extremely unhelpful by the governments both in Washington and Seoul. Chris Nelson reported on April 29 that Clinton reacted strongly when asked in a morning meeting if she wanted to meet with Carter. From the Nelson report:
“The performance of President Carter and his delegation in N. Korea this week was either shameful or fatuous…or both…and exemplifies why Carter had no…zero…USG support going in, and even less coming out, per an alleged eye witness account of Sec. St. Clinton at the morning meeting the other day:
“‘Do you want to meet with Carter?’ Clinton is looking at papers, and just says ‘No.’ Then she pauses, looks up and adds, ‘HELL no!!!’”
Jimmy the Dhimmi is persona non grata among national Dems. Savor the aroma of that for a moment. 😆
Jimmy the Dhimmi is fretting over Monday’s Supreme Court ruling about providing material support to terrorist groups. Details:
Former President Jimmy Carter has voiced concern that Monday’s Supreme Court ruling on “material support” to terrorist groups may criminalize his “work to promote peace and freedom.”
Carter, whose advocacy has entailed contact with groups designated by the U.S. government as “foreign terrorist organizations” (FTOs) – notably Hamas and Hezbollah – said he was disappointed by the court decision.
The high court, in a 6-3 decision, upheld a federal law that forbids providing “material support” to an FTO, ruling that it can be applied to U.S. organizations whose engagement with terrorists involves promoting non-violent solutions to conflicts.
The law, part of the post-9/11 USA Patriot Act, forbids the provision of any aid, defined as including “service,” “training” or “expert advice or assistance,” to a designated FTO.
In a statement reacting to the decision, Carter said, “We are disappointed that the Supreme Court has upheld a law that inhibits the work of human rights and conflict resolution groups.”
Yeah, because when I think of “human rights and conflict resolution groups”, I naturally think of Hamas and Hezbollah.
Carter, the most anti-Semitic president this country has ever had the shame in electing, has a history of playing kissyface with thugs, dictators, and terrorists. Now, he fears criminal prosecution for it. Sucks for him. Schmuck.
Exit question: Do you think that Jimmah sees President Kick#ss quickly gaining ground on his own legacy as America’s worst president ever, and thus is trying to keep his reign in tact with this horrendous publicity stunt? “Darnit, The Won just may make people forget me. I’m not going to stand for that!”
The Eric Holder approach:
Let’s see here:
The Taliban. al Qaeda. Hamas. Hezbollah. Iran’s ruling clerics. If only I could find one common bond, one thing they all share…
Well, I know one thing they don’t share in common, thanks to President Spineless:
President Barack Obama’s advisers will remove religious terms such as “Islamic extremism” from the central document outlining the U.S. national security strategy and will use the rewritten document to emphasize that the United States does not view Muslim nations through the lens of terror, counterterrorism officials said.
The change is a significant shift in the National Security Strategy, a document that previously outlined the Bush Doctrine of preventative war and currently states: “The struggle against militant Islamic radicalism is the great ideological conflict of the early years of the 21st century.”
So does this mean that B.O. just solved our national security problems related to Islamic terrorist attacks? Simply remove references to it, and presto change-o…no more Islamic terrorism! Dude’s so awesome he just eradicated militant Islamic extremism…with his mind! You’re welcome, America.
God help us until the grown-ups and normal Americans can get back in charge!
Like I asked last week: You get the feeling that B.O. is incompentent in dealing with terrorism? Yeah, me too. Instances like this only add to that sentiment:
A federal judge tosses a Club Gitmo detainee’s confession as coerced.
The Panty Bomber was “singing like a canary“, until he was read his Miranda “rights”. He then lawyered up and clammed up.
Even his dog washers at the NYT are beginning to think he bears a strong resemblance to Jimmy the Dhimmi Carter…and like the rest of normal America, they know that’s not a good thing.
Such is the column by Claudia Rosett, and it is absolutely awesome! Excerpt:
Every time it seems he’s said much, much more than enough, Jimmy Carter is back in the news — this time defending his handling 30 years ago of the Iran hostage crisis. Speaking while on a visit to Thailand, Carter told reporters that when the hostage crisis began in 1979, “My main advisers insisted that I should attack Iran.” Carter says he decided not to risk the loss of life (there’s no reference in this latest story to the American lives lost in the botched rescue attempt he authorized and then aborted).
The result was the gross humilation of the U.S., as the hostage crisis dragged on for 444 days — until Ronald Reagan took office. And from those beginnings on Carter’s watch came an emboldened Islamic Republic of Iran, a terror-based regime which for 30 years has been brutalizing its own people, setting up global networks of terrorist finance, weaponry and murder, and is now closing on the nuclear bomb. How many lives has this cost already? How many more will this cost in times ahead? There may be no way to assign a precise number, but the answer is definitely “many” — including Iranians themselves, among them the five now sentenced to death for their roles in the June pro-democracy demonstrations. As Iran continues to export its message and tactics of terror, possibly soon to be turbo-charged with a nuclear arsenal, the odds keep climbing of devastating tolls to come. …
Do yourself a favor and read the rest of it. Or you suck. Your choice.
Anti-Semitic former president Jimmy the Dhimmi Carter never met a dictator or terrorist thug that he didn’t like. The same foreign policy genius that gave us gas rationing, a “wear a sweater” energy policy, a 444-day American hostage standoff, and legitimizing Arafat has decided that Hamas really isn’t such a bad group of guys. I mean, if you can just get past their whole “death to Israel” charter and stuff, they’re practically jonesing for peace!
Former President Jimmy Carter will urge the Obama administration to remove Hamas from the terrorist list, FOX News has learned.
Carter, a chief defender of the U.S.-designated terror group, said Tuesday he will meet with officials in the Obama administration in two days to discuss his latest trip to the Middle East.
The international community has asked Hamas to recognize Israel, renounce violence and accept previous peace deals as part of ongoing efforts for Palestinians overall to acquire their own country. Hamas has refused.
And just how stupid is Carter? This much:
According to two eyewitnesses, including a 15-year-old boy, the bombs that were found were intended to hit Carter’s vehicle as he exited Gaza. There is some suspicion that Hamas extremists (redundant much? – Ed.) linked to Al Qaeda may be behind the attempt.
“Hey, let’s remove from the terrorist list a group that is trying to kill me!” No wonder he lost 44 states to Reagan.
Hat tip to PabloD for passing on this bit of Euro P.C. lunacy. From the UK:
Muslim prayer rooms should be opened in every Roman Catholic school, church leaders have said.
The Catholic bishops of England and Wales also want facilities in schools for Islamic pre-prayer washing rituals.
The recommendations were made in a document, Catholic Schools, Children of Other Faiths and Community Cohesion.
‘If practicable, a room (or rooms) might be made available for the use of pupils and staff from other faiths for prayer,’ the bishops said.
‘Existing toilet facilities might be adapted to accommodate individual ritual cleansing which is sometimes part of religious lifestyle and worship.
At least one sane person was quoted in this article:
Daphne McLeod, a former Catholic head teacher from south London, said it would be ‘terribly expensive’ for the country’s 2,300 Catholic primary and secondary schools to provide ritual cleansing facilities.
She said: ‘If Muslim parents choose a Catholic school then they accept that it is going to be a Catholic school and there will not be facilities for ritual cleansing and prayer rooms.
‘They do their ritual cleansing before they go to a mosque, but they are not going to a mosque.
‘I don’t think the bishops should go looking for problems. Where will it stop?’
How’s about a chortle at this poor schlub’s naivete?
But Majid Khatme, a Muslim who sent his children to a London Catholic school, said he was delighted by the gesture.
‘It is very kind of the bishops if they give this facility for Muslims to pray,’ he said.
‘I would love to send a letter of thanks to the bishops, really. If they do this all Muslims in Britain will be thankful to the Catholic Church to have facilities to pray. It is very, very encouraging.’
Oh, I see. Allow Muslims to pray in Catholic schools and the jihadist weirdbeards will suddenly stop self-detonating and screaming “Death to Infidels!” in light of their newfound respect for British dhimmis! Yeah, good luck with that.
It seems like only yesterday that the UK was a respectable, awe-inspiring nation. Now, it is a pathetic caricature.
And the left wants us to emulate the Euros? No thanks! From the UK:
ISLAMIC law has been officially adopted in Britain, with sharia courts given powers to rule on Muslim civil cases.
The government has quietly sanctioned the powers for sharia judges to rule on cases ranging from divorce and financial disputes to those involving domestic violence.
Rulings issued by a network of five sharia courts are enforceable with the full power of the judicial system, through the county courts or High Court.
In the six cases of domestic violence, Siddiqi said the judges ordered the husbands to take anger management classes and mentoring from community elders. There was no further punishment.
In each case, the women subsequently withdrew the complaints they had lodged with the police and the police stopped their investigations.
Congrats, Brits. Your dhimmitude is unparallelled.
On Monday in Michigan, Obama became exercised when talking about the need to give even suspected terrorists legal rights.
“We may think this is Mohammed the terrorist,’’ he said at a campaign rally, but “it might be Mohammed the cab driver. You might think it’s Barack the bomb thrower. But it might be Barack the guy running for president.’’
Continuing, he got more heated, his voice booming. Referring to the Constitution, he said: “Don’t mock the Constitution! Don’t make fun of it! Don’t suggest that it’s un-American to abide by what the founding fathers set up! It’s worked pretty well for 200 years!!’’ (It’s worked SO well that he and his leftist ilk want to Supreme Court justices to ignore it. – Ed.)
He finished with a sigh: “These people.” (“These people”? I thought that was supposed to be racist? Guess that pendulum only swings one way. – Ed.)
“Barack the bomb thrower”? Hasn’t this schmuck figured out that “he’s got a funny name” didn’t work as a self-defense mechanism? Yet here he is, trying again. Knock yourself out, pal.
Exit question: Dude sure is concerned over terrorists’ rights, isn’t he?
Only from the openly liberal Beeb (or possibly al-Reuters and/or Al Jazeera)! Details:
A BBC news girl attacked TV yesterday for failing to show viewers the Taliban’s “humanity”.
Presenter Lyse Doucet’s astonishing statement comes as an Apache gunship hero revealed the fanatics aim to capture a British soldier and SKIN HIM LIVE on the internet.
Military Cross winner Ed Macy — whose book Apache is serialised in The Sun from today — tells how an intelligence officer gave details of the Taliban butchers’ sick plan.
It made Army Air Corps Warrant Officer Macy and his comrades even more determined to rescue a mortally wounded Marine from a Taliban stronghold — which they did with four soldiers strapped to the outside of two Apaches.
But BBC World News correspondent Doucet claimed the public also want to seeing the kinder side of the Afghan extremists.
Asked what was missing in media coverage, she said: “It may sound odd but the humanity of the Taliban, because they are a wide, very diverse group of people.”
Canadian-born Doucet, 49, told the Edinburgh TV festival: “Some would like to talk to the British Government. Some of them don’t want to be fighting British troops. Some of them would. This is the ideological Taliban.”
Doucet, with the BBC since 1983, also criticised the reporting of Prince Harry’s Army service in Afghanistan.
She said: “You knew the bombs were dropping and the guns were pointing in that direction but you never got a sense of how Afghans are as a people.” …
The dhimmitude of the UK continues. From the Daily Mail:
State school pupils are set to be taught Islamic traditions and values in compulsory citizenship lessons.
The move – part of a package of initiatives announced by Communities Secretary Hazel Blears yesterday – is designed to curb extremism. (Yeah, good luck with that. – Ed.)
Education campaigners warned however against giving Islam a privileged position over other faiths. (Too late. – Ed.)
I notice they’re not mandating Hindu, Buddhist, Catholic, etc., education for this. How sad that this once powerful empire has succumbed to political correctness.
Waiting for the MSM, or even the McLame campaign, to pick this up and run with it. From the New Yorker:
Obama’s response to the event (9/11/2001 – Ed.) was published on September 19th in the Hyde Park Herald:
We must also engage, however, in the more difficult task of understanding the sources of such madness. The essence of this tragedy, it seems to me, derives from a fundamental absence of empathy on the part of the attackers: an inability to imagine, or connect with, the humanity and suffering of others. Such a failure of empathy, such numbness to the pain of a child or the desperation of a parent, is not innate; nor, history tells us, is it unique to a particular culture, religion, or ethnicity. It may find expression in a particular brand of violence, and may be channeled by particular demagogues or fanatics. Most often, though, it grows out of a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair.
We will have to make sure, despite our rage, that any U.S. military action takes into account the lives of innocent civilians abroad. We will have to be unwavering in opposing bigotry or discrimination directed against neighbors and friends of Middle Eastern descent. Finally, we will have to devote far more attention to the monumental task of raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe—children not just in the Middle East, but also in Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and within our own shores.
So a scant eight days after that savage act of cowardice perpetrated by bin Laden’s henchmen, the Obamessiah felt we needed to fully appreciate the socioeconomic factors that caused these bloodthirsty camelhumpers to slaughter 3,000 men, women, and children? Is he out of his everloving gourd? I mean, “a climate of poverty and ignorance, helplessness and despair”? Does he even know that the weirdbeards who did this were from middle- to upper-income families and had good educations?
In the days following the modern day Pearl Harbor, this “kumbaya” kook who now has the Democrat nomination was more concerned about “raising the hopes and prospects of embittered children across the globe” rather than the immediacy of protecting our country and its people. I guess I just lack the necessary “nuance” to fully appreciate that sentiment, especially right after the mass murder of my fellow Americans. I’m kind of funny that way.
Prediction #1: “This was an ‘inartful’ attempt to explain blah-blah-blah…”
Prediction #2: “These are not the peaceful 9/11 hijackers I knew.”
Which U.N. council, you ask? Hey, I’m glad you asked! It’s the U.N. Human Rights Council. No doubt the irony is lost on these numbnuts. Observe:
Imran Ahmed Siddiqui, the representative from Pakistan, echoed the ever-echoing refrain of all Islamic apologists in the West, when he complained that Littman’s initiative on genital mutilation, stoning and child marriage amounted to an “out-of-context, selective discussion on the Sharia law.” He asked that Littman not be allowed to speak: “I would therefore request the president to exercise his judgment and authority and request the speaker not to touch issues which have already been debarred from discussion in this Council.”
Apparently, free speech isn’t considered a human right…unless an American flag is being burned, that is.
The Islamification of Eurabia continues. From the UK:
HERTFORD’S new state-of-the-art police station was unveiled on Monday, in a move to put policing “back in the centre of town”.
The hi-tech, £46 million project boasts up to date IT support, a confidential witness room and a ‘reflection room’ which will house a prayer mat, religious texts and a compass to allow Muslim staff members to pinpoint Mecca.
Tell me again: why we should emulate the Euros and their dhimmitude-based society?
Details here. I don’t know how to break this to the Obamessiah, but bin Laden is free not because of Republican incompetence, but Bill Clinton’s. Don’t take my word for it…listen to Bubba admit as much himself.
Of course it is. After all, Bush made the Danes publish the Mohammed cartoons that got the weirdbeards’ collective turbans in a bunch, right? Idiot Euros.
Al Qaeda, though, doesn’t quite see it the same way as the Euros, and they want credit where it’s due. The stupid Euros, though, blame the exterminator instead of the cockroaches.
To quote Ace: “Oh. My. God.” What a friggin’ lunatic.
Having blurted out, probably accidentally, that the surge was in fact successful, Granny Rictus McBotoxImplants now scrambles to credit the enemy nation murdering our troops with the victory our troops accomplished through blood, sweat, tears, and more blood.
It’s not our troops. It’s not Petraeus’ leadership. It’s not the Iraqis turning on the Al Qaeda murderers. No — it’s Iran’s goodwill.
Well, the purpose of the surge was to provide a secure space, a time for the political change to occur to accomplish the reconciliation. That didn’t happen. Whatever the military success, and progress that may have been made, the surge didn’t accomplish its goal.And some of the success of the surge is that the goodwill of the Iranians-they decided in Basra when the fighting would end, they negotiated that cessation of hostilities-the Iranians.
Pardon my blasphemy but Jesus Christ All Mighty.
Will she also thank Al Qaeda for scaling back its beheadings and bombings?
And to think this moonbat extraordinaire is two steps away from the presidency!
Jean-Francois Heinz-Kerry (who is rumored to have served in Vietnam) took to the airwaves yesterday to defend Obama from charges that Bush never made about Obama, specifically that Obama wants to meet with terrorist regimes like Iran. From the Weekly Standard:
On MSNBC a few minutes ago, Senator John Kerry was on, furiously trying to explain Barack Obama’s increasingly tortuous position on Iran. (Kerry as Obama’s foreign policy proxy? You know where this is going…)
Senator Kerry attempted to claim that Obama doesn’t necessarily want direct, presidential-level diplomacy with Iran. Rather, he explained, “That’s why you have a Secretary of State, that’s why you have ambassadors.”
Well, that settles it! If a man who has an imaginary event like Christmas in Cambodia “seared, seared” into his memory says that the Obamessiah never said he’d meet with Iran without preconditions, then I should certainly believe that man over my own lying eyes and ears.
It depends on the meaning of the words “direct” and “without preconditions”!
Here are Bush’s words:
“Some seem to believe we should negotiate with terrorists and radicals, as if some ingenious argument will persuade them they have been wrong all along,” the President said to the country’s legislative body, “We have heard this foolish delusion before. As Nazi tanks crossed into Poland in 1939, an American senator declared: ‘Lord, if only I could have talked to Hitler, all of this might have been avoided.’ We have an obligation to call this what it is –- the false comfort of appeasement, which has been repeatedly discredited by history.”
The Dems’ reactions?
In a statement, Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., shot across the bow: “It is sad that President Bush would use a speech to the Knesset on the 6Oth anniversary of Israel’s independence to launch a false political attack. It is time to turn the page on eight years of policies that have strengthened Iran and failed to secure America or our ally Israel. Instead of tough talk and no action, we need to do what Kennedy, Nixon and Reagan did and use all elements of American power — including tough, principled, and direct diplomacy – to pressure countries like Iran and Syria. George Bush knows that I have never supported engagement with terrorists, and the President’s extraordinary politicization of foreign policy and the politics of fear do nothing to secure the American people or our stalwart ally Israel.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Cali., did not take kindly to the remarks calling Bush’s statement “beneath the dignity of the office of the president” in her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill.
Pelosi alluded that presumptive Republican nominee Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., should distance himself from Bush’s assertions in Israel, repeatedly saying “any sensible person” would. (Really? Any “sensible person” would negotiate with terrorists? Got it. Thanks for the clarification. – Ed.)
Wow, they sure are getting defensive! I mean, Bush didn’t mention any names, nor any office names (i.e. he didn’t say “the Senator from IL” or “House Speaker”). By the way the left is reacting, it’s as if they disagree with Bush and feel that it is indeed responsible to negotiate with terrorists. Otherwise, why get your burqas in a bunch, liberals?
Someone tell me again how this #sshat isn’t considered anti-American. From Ed Morrissey (video clip in link):
Jimmy Carter appeared on the Tonight Show last night to offer his view on the upcoming credentials fight at the Democratic National Convention. The world-renowned election observer, who has argued for the legitimacy of Hamas, argued against the legitimacy of seating delegates from Florida and Michigan in Denver. He told Jay Leno that those voters had “disqualified themselves” by moving their primary dates ahead of the limitation of the DNC:
Who knew Steve Doocy had such passion in defending Democrats in Florida and Michigan? He makes a couple of decent points in this rant, especially ridiculing the notion that the voters disqualified themselves; those decisions got made by party leaders and state legislatures, and also by Howard Dean and the DNC. The national party botched this exercise in discipline by completely negating the impact of the two states. The RNC handled it appropriately by reducing their impact but still allowing the states to seat delegates and have some impact on the results.
Carter isn’t entirely wrong here, in that the parties had to take steps to punish states that broke the rules. However, the smug dismissal of American votes as illegitimate coming just after his insistence that a terrorist group should be recognized because it won an election provides a mind-bending irony that may just be too large to contemplate all at once. Maybe if Florida and Michigan voted to endorse Hamas, Carter’s opinion would change?
What a complete fool Carter is! No wonder he dropped 44 states to Ronaldus Magnus in 1980.
Jimmah is as useless today as he was 30+ years ago. From the AP:
Former President Jimmy Carter said Monday that Hamas — the Islamic militant group (the MSM just can’t bring themselves to say “terrorist”, can they? – Ed.) that has called for the destruction of Israel — is prepared to accept the right of the Jewish state to “live as a neighbor next door in peace.”
Carter relayed the message in a speech in Jerusalem after meeting last week with top Hamas leaders in Syria. It capped a nine-day visit to the Mideast aimed at breaking the deadlock between Israel and Hamas militants who rule the Gaza Strip.
Hamas leaders “said that they would accept a Palestinian state on the 1967 borders” and they would “accept the right of Israel to live as a neighbor next door in peace,” Carter said.
Wow…so the Peanut Putz got the terrorists to abandon their organization’s charter and recognize the right of Israel to exist? What a miracle worker! Um, except…
Carter said Hamas promised it wouldn’t undermine Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas’ efforts to reach a peace deal with Israel, as long as the Palestinian people approved it in a referendum. In such a scenario, he said Hamas would not oppose a Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza.
Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri in Gaza said Hamas’ readiness to put a peace deal to a referendum “does not mean that Hamas is going to accept the result of the referendum.”
“We accept a Palestinian state within the June 4 1967 borders with Jerusalem as its capital — a sovereign state without settlements — as well as the right of Palestinian refugees to return, but without recognition of Israel,” he said.
Terrorists ignore the will of the people, and they lie? Gee…who knew? Apparently, Carter didn’t.
Carter said that ‘The present strategy of excluding Hamas and excluding Syria is just not working”, and I just want to know this: virtually everything that man did in his four years of miserable leadership was an unmitigated failure, so what in the hell would he know about what works and what doesn’t?
He didn’t change Hamas’ minds a single bit. They re-emphasized their commitment to slaughtering innocent Jews. All Carter did was legitimize their horrific existence in the eyes of the world. Even while he’s no longer president, Jimmy the Dhimmi is still making messes in the world that will take generations (if ever) to clean up.
Wow. Just “wow”! Straight from the peanut farmer’s mouth, via WSJ:
Former President Jimmy Carter has an interesting way of saying more than he intends. He lusts in his heart. He turns to his 13-year-old daughter for foreign policy wisdom (Now THAT explains a lot! – Ed.). He titles a book, “Palestine Peace Not Apartheid.” What Mr. Carter means to say is that he is a flesh-and-blood human being, a caring father, a missionary for peace. What he actually communicates is that he is weirdly libidinal, scarily naive and obsessively hostile to Israel.
Now the 2002 Nobel laureate is in reprise mode. “In a democracy, I realize you don’t need to talk to the top leader to know how the country feels,” he said over the weekend, responding to a question from an Israeli journalist who noted that Mr. Carter had been snubbed by most of Israel’s top leadership and reprimanded by its president, Shimon Peres. “When I go to a dictatorship, I only have to talk to one person and that’s the dictator, because he speaks for all the people.”
This will further boost his anti-Semitic credentials. From FNC:
Former President Jimmy Carter is reportedly preparing an unprecedented meeting with the leader of Hamas, an organization that the U.S. government considers one of the leading terrorist threats in the world.
The Arabic-language newspaper Al-Hayat reported Tuesday that Carter was planning a trip to Syria for mid-April, during which he would meet with Khaled Meshal, the exiled head of the Palestinian terror group Hamas, on April 18.
Deanna Congileo, Carter’s press secretary, confirmed in an e-mail to FOXNews.com that Carter will be in the Mideast in April. Pressed for comment, Congileo did not deny that the former president is considering visiting Meshal.
Exit observation: Jimmah endorsed Barry O last week, and since Barry O has an anti-Semitic military adviser prone to Zionist conspiracy theories, this is the last thing that Osamabama needed.
Indianapolis Internation Airport has decided to…well, check it out for yourself:
Floor sinks to accommodate prayer requirements for Muslim taxi drivers will be installed at Indianapolis International Airport by fall.
David Dawson, a spokesman for the airport project, said this week that two bathrooms, one for men and one for women, will have the sinks. Both will be in a 900-square-foot building where taxi drivers gather before picking up passengers at the terminal.
Many of the taxi drivers are Muslims who pray five times a day. The prayer involves many rituals, including washing the feet.
The wussification of this country continues.
The religion of perpetual outrage and bloodlust still has its collective turbans in a bunch over the infidels’ Mohammed cartoons. Osama took time out from his busy schedule being a punk ass bitch hiding in a cave like a coward to issue a threat to the Euros over such an unforgiveable (and, apparently, punishable by death) infraction. From bin Laden’s mouthpiece, aka al-Reuters:
Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden threatened the European Union with grave punishment over the re-publication of cartoons of Islam’s Prophet Mohammad that Muslims saw as offensive.
Bin Laden in an audio recording posted on the Internet said that the drawings which were published by Danish and other newspapers were part of a “crusade” in which the Catholic Pope was involved.
Knowing the reputation of al-Reuters, OBL probably personally gave them a jingle to give ’em a turbans-up where to find his rant.
Exit question, mainly for the Euros: considering that Euros have kept their candy asses out of Afghanistan and Iraq, thinking that such spinelessness will spare them the wrath of the bloodthirsty camelhumping jihadists, I’ve got to know…how’s that working for you? Seeing as how you’re now marked for death, apparently it’s not working that well at all for you. Kinda shoots to hell your theory of “they’re just pissed at America and the UK for being in their territory”, wouldn’t you say? I mean, it couldn’t possibly be that we were right in recognizing what a bunch of barbaric savages they are and would find any reason possible to want us all dead, could it?
If by “talk”, you mean “Bomb them into oblivion and fry them to a crispy shell”, then I agree. If not, you’re a tool. From al-Reuters:
The Foreign Office on Saturday dismissed as “inconceivable” calls by an ex-aide to former British Prime Minister Tony Blair to open a channel of communication with al Qaeda.
Jonathan Powell, who served as Blair’s chief of staff between 1995 and 2007, said he would “want to find a channel to al Qaeda” if he was still in government, the Guardian newspaper reported.
He was quoted as saying that a secret back channel between the British government and the IRA, first opened in the 1970s, was a key factor that contributed to a peace deal in Northern Ireland three decades later, which he was central to securing.
Only by talking to al Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan could Western governments hope to secure a long-term halt in their campaigns of violence, he was reported as saying.
He told the Guardian: “There’s nothing to say to al Qaeda and they’ve got nothing to say to us at the moment, but at some stage you’re going to have to come to a political solution as well as a security solution. And that means you need the ability to talk.”
He added: “It’s very difficult for democratic governments to do — talk to a terrorist movement that’s killing your people.
“[But] if I was in government now I would want to have been talking to Hamas, I would be wanting to communicate with the Taliban; and I would want to find a channel to al Qaeda.” …
Aside from the obvious point that negotiating with terrorists gives any would-be jihadist with a bomb vest the incentive to blow shiite up (knowing that they, too, have a chance at getting what they want through negotiations), this needs to be asked: When one side’s starting point in a discussion is “We want all of you infidels dead, dead, dead”, then what, pray tell, is the point of “talks”?
Way to go, buttmunches. Bleed your hearts for the couscous-eating goathumpers who want us dead. Story here.
Under these new restrictions, here’s how an interrogation will look:
US: Tell us where the next terrorist strike is.
US: Pretty please.
US: Pretty please with falafel on top.
US: Whew, this guy’s a tough nut to crack. Send him back to his jacuzzi and let’s try the next prisoner.
Pansies. Fortunately, Dub’s going to veto the bill.
Not only does Jimmy the Dhimmi like to coddle evil maniacal dictators, he apparently would have preferred Satan to be coddled, too. To think that this senile, egocentric buffoon was once the president!
From the American Spectator:
APPROPRIATELY ENOUGH, to Carter’s mind, the biggest trade-off of the Crucifixion may have been gaining eternal salvation while losing a potentially great bureaucratic overlord. During a meditation on the temptation of Christ, Carter muses over the attractiveness of Satan’s offer to allow Christ to rule the world if he rejected God:
What a wonderful and benevolent government Jesus could have set up. How exemplary justice would have been. Maybe there would have been Habitat projects all over Israel for anyone who needed a home. And the proud, the rich, and the powerful could not have dominated their fellow citizensâ€¦As a twentieth-century governor and president I would have had a perfect pattern to follow. I could have pointed to the Bible and told other government leaders, “This is what Jesus did 2000 years ago in government. Why don’t we do the same?”
That Carter assumes, first, he would be a worthy successor to Christ in political office — what, Jesus returns to implement…term limits? — and, second, that the Messiah would spend his post-presidency years doing precisely as Carter did — building Habitat for Humanity homes, apparently — tells you everything you need to know about the Man from Plains’ outlook on this world and the next.
Go ahead, you Carter defenders: try your best with this one!
A victory for common sense, although regrettably not a unanimous one. From the AP:
The Supreme Court said Tuesday that a Muslim inmate cannot sue the government over the disappearance of the prisoner’s copies of the Quran and a prayer rug.
In a 5-4 ruling, the justices said the federal law the inmate relied on prohibits lawsuits against federal corrections officers.
Abdus-Shahid M.S. Ali says the missing books and rug reflect widespread harassment against Muslim inmates in federal, state and local prisons stemming from the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
“Reports from all over the country have come in” on Muslims’ religious property that “has been destroyed, confiscated, looted, lost, stolen or taken without cause,” Ali said in the lawsuit he filed in federal court.
Ali is serving a sentence of 20 years to life in prison for committing first-degree murder in the District of Columbia.
Well bless his little murderous heart! Those mean ol’ criminals took his Koran! Just what is our criminal justice system coming to when they let thieves into prison? Anywho, the sob story continues:
The issue in the case was whether federal prison guards are immune from suit under the Federal Tort Claims Act.
The law blocks lawsuits against the government over goods detained by customs and excise officers or “any other law enforcement officer.” Two lower federal courts said Ali cannot sue because prison officials are law enforcement officers.
Justice Clarence Thomas, writing for a majority that cut across ideological grounds, agreed with the lower courts. The law “forecloses lawsuits against the United States for the unlawful detention of property by ‘any,’ not just ‘some,’ law enforcement officers,” Thomas said.
Tuesday’s ruling was the first 5-4 split of the term, following a term in which the margin in 24 cases was a single vote.
Chief Justice John Roberts and Justices Samuel Alito, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Antonin Scalia joined Thomas. The dissenters were Justices Stephen Breyer, Anthony Kennedy, David Souter and John Paul Stevens.
Oh my Allah! The incredibly rare display of common sense by Race Baiter Ginsburg notwithstanding, the leftists (and yes, that includes Justice Kennedy) on the Supreme Court just can’t get a damned thing right, can they?
