Jonathan Tobin: "Palestinian" "Landmark" Was Once The House Of Hitler's Collaborator
It says something about the way much of the world views the rights of Jews to live in Jerusalem that the erection of new homes in parts of that city is considered such a terrible provocation. Thus, the new housing project in the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood of the city is generally reported as an outrageous provocation, even though the only reason this area is usually described as “predominantly Arab” or, more outrageously, “traditionally Arab” is because from 1949 to 1967, when this location was illegally occupied by Jordan, Jews were prohibited from living there.
As to whether it is wise for Israel to allow Jews to live in all parts of their capital, that is something that Israelis can debate, though redividing Jerusalem and returning those parts handed over to the Palestinian Arabs to a Jew-free condition seems like a curious way to advance the cause of peace and mutual coexistence. But let’s leave aside the question of Jewish rights or even the strategic wisdom of putting more Jews in these neighborhoods. Let us instead examine the Palestinian claim and what it represents.
When the New York Times reported the fact that ground was being broken for the new housing in Sheikh Jarrah in a story published on Sunday, what it did was to focus on the destruction of what it claimed was a Palestinian “landmark.” What landmark, you ask? Was it a medieval structure that in some way represents the longstanding Arab presence in the city or its culture? No. The building that was toppled to make way for some new apartment houses was just a large home that was built in the 1930s as a villa for one of the most notorious figures in 20th-century history: Haj Amin al-Husseini, the mufti of Jerusalem. Husseini may never have spent much time in what eventually was renamed the Shepherd Hotel, but he did make his mark on the region by inspiring bloody pogroms against the Jews then living in the country. After the outbreak of World War II, he joined forces with the Nazis, meeting with Hitler and then spending the war making Arabic propaganda broadcasts for the Axis and successfully recruiting Muslims (mostly Bosnians) to serve in a special SS brigade. He was promised that, in the event of a German victory, he would be made the puppet ruler of what is now Israel, where he would assist the Nazis in the massacre of the several hundred thousand Jews who lived there.
That a home that was in any way connected to Husseini or any other Nazi would be considered a landmark whose demolition inspired statements of sadness from contemporary Palestinian leaders like Saeb Erekat speaks volumes about the nature of Palestinian politics. That the intended home of the man who dreamed of wiping out every last Jew in Jerusalem is coming down to make room for Jewish homes is certainly ironic. One needn’t necessarily agree with the politics of Daniel Luria, a representative of Ateret Cohanim, the group that promotes Jewish building throughout Jerusalem, to appreciate what he termed the “beautiful poetic justice” of this event.

Nigeria Fresh Church attack: Police Constable killed, 2 others injured in Borno
From The Vanguard
A Police Constable, Amos Tangurda, attached to Cocin Church at Gomari Airport of Maiduguri metropolis, was Sunday night shot death at about 7:15p.m. by gunmen, while one of his colleagues and a security man, Mallam Akilahyel, who was recently employed by the church, sustained injuries.
According to an eyewitness, the suspects who came on a vehicle, parked close to the church and opened fire at the two Policemen who were assigned to guard the church.
The injured are currently receiving treatment at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital.
It would be recalled that since the Christmas Eve attacks where some churches in the state were burnt down by suspected members of the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram, the Commissioner of Police, CP, Mohammed Jinjiri Abubakar, directed all Divisional Police Officers, DPOs, to deploy their men to guard all churches in the metropolis.
When Vanguard visited the scene of the incident, a member of the church said “The gunfire went on for about seven minutes. Afterwards, they entered their vehicle and sped off. When some of us went to see what happened, we just saw one of the Policemen in the pool of his blood before he eventually died.”

Swedish Muslim Council renews support for leader - mother-in-law of terror suspect.
From The Local
The Swedish Muslim Council declared its support on Sunday for chairwoman Helena Benaouda despite the fact that one of the terror suspects in Copenhagen is the father of her daughter's children. The board has concluded that Benaouda cannot be blamed for what someone else has done.
At the end of December, five people were arrested on suspicion of planning an attack against Danish newspaper Jyllands-Posten's editorial office in Copenhagen.
One of those arrested was Munir Awad, 29, who has two children with the Benaouda's daughter. Benaouda told newspaper Dagens Nyheter (DN) that she first learned of the arrest when a journalist called her. "I asked my daughter and when we looked for him, he was not there," she recalled.
Benaouda said that if the allegations against Awad are true, it would be surprising that her daughter did not know anything and that she should have known.Awad has previously been imprisoned abroad on two occasions, once in Ethiopia and once in Pakistan.
Awad has a debt with the Swedish debt office after the country's foreign affairs ministry paid for his repatriation from Ethiopia. It remains unclear how he could have afforded the trip to Pakistan. "I have no insight into their finances. However, I know that my daughter has no money. She said that Munir paid," said Benaouda.

Child Sex Grooming: Nine 'Asian' Men Arrested in Rochdale
From Sky News and the Manchester Evening News
Nine Asian men are being investigated over claims they groomed teenage white girls for sex. The suspects, aged between 20 and 40 years of age, are reported to be from Rochdale and Heywood in Greater Manchester.
They were arrested on suspicion of causing or inciting child prostitution, sexual activity with a child under 16 and paying for the sexual services of a child. The arrests were made last month but have only just become public knowledge.
so far 14 girls have been identified as potential victims. The girls claim they were plied with drink and drugs and then taken to flats and houses for sex. Police said the girls are all white and aged 13 to 15 and at least one had been in the care of Rochdale Social Services. It is understood some of the girls were missing from home. An inquiry was started after some of them alerted police.
Nine men have been arrested on suspicion of a variety of sexual offences. Eight were arrested in December and a ninth man was arrested last week. They have all been bailed until March. And how many of them are now visiting relatives for wedding celebrations in 'Asia'?
A spokesman for GMP confirmed that all of the men arrested so far are Asian. A ‘Gold meeting’ involving senior police officers – including Asst Chief Constable Terry Sweeney – has been held to discuss the case. A source said: "It discussed the strategic direction the investigation will take and the implications for the wider community."
In a statement GMP said: "There is an ongoing investigation into a number of sexual offences against girls in the Rochdale area. As a result a number of local men have been arrested, interviewed and released on bail pending further inquiries.

Muslim gang rapists face court in Bendigo, Victoria, Australia
From a report in Australia's ABC, which - surprisingly, for the ABC - provides the telltale names of two of the perps. I was not able to find any other account of this that mentioned their names.
'Seven face court over Bendigo rape'
'Four men and three boys have been charged with raping a woman at Bendigo in central Victoria.
'Mohammad Zaoli, 21, Aru Gar, 19, and Mohammad El Nour and Akoak Manon, both 18 years old, are each facing 17 offences including counts of rape and assault.
Two gang rapists, in the same gang, both called 'Mohammad'; a thing becoming all too common of late in every non-Muslim country where large Mohammedan colonies have established themselves. The other two names, which have a Sudanese flavour, are not obviously Muslim - one wonders whether they were proto-janissaries, so to speak, non-Muslim boys running with a Muslim gang. In another report, which did not supply names, we were told that they were from Shepparton - a town in which many asylum seekers and refugees, some non-Muslim, but many Muslim, have been recently settled. We are not told whether the girl was Australian; she could have been non-Muslim Sudanese. - CM.
'Three boys aged from 14 to 17 have been charged with the same offences.
'It is alleged the rape happened in the suburb of Flora Hill on Sunday.
'The group faced court in Bendigo briefly this afternoon by video link.
'They did not apply for bail.
'All seven are due to face court again on Friday'.

Police awaiting forensic report in Sri Lankan maidâ€™s death
Another foreign maid has turned up mysteriously dead in Saudi Arabia. By Md Rasooldeen for Arab News:
RIYADH: The sponsor of a 36-year-old Sri Lankan maid who died in mysterious circumstances in Hofuf, the Eastern Province, in November has been arrested by police who are now waiting for a forensic report from Riyadh to complete investigations.
The maid, Pospawalli Selladurai, died on Nov. 5, 2010, in circumstances that her relatives describe as suspicious.
Her sister, Saroja, who works as a housemaid in Beirut, told Arab News over the phone that Pospawalli’s death is a mystery. She added that the maid completed her two-year contact on Nov. 5, 2009, and was not allowed to return to Sri Lanka until her death.
A senior diplomat from the Sri Lankan Embassy said the mission has been following the case. Pospawalli’s body is kept in a morgue at a government hospital in Hofuf, he said, adding that the authorities are waiting for a report on samples taken from her body from a forensic laboratory in Riyadh.
The diplomat said the final report on the cause of the death will be given to the embassy as soon as the medical report arrives from Riyadh. He added that the maid’s sponsor, a Saudi woman, has been remanded in police custody.
Saroja said her sister’s husband died four years ago and that her four children are being cared for by her family. “We want her body to be sent home so that the family can see her,” said Saroja.
She added that her sister’s children — Suvaruban, Devika, Dinesh and Dilrukshan — are aged between 13 and 6. “We will be happy if someone helps this family for the children to continue their education,” she said.
“A few years ago, Pospawalli was a happily married woman with four children. When her husband died in 2005, she struggled to make ends meet. After a couple of years she decided to start working to pay for her children’s school fees. This is when she turned to an agency in Sri Lanka to be sent abroad as a domestic worker. In November 2007, she signed a two-year contract with the agency to work in Saudi Arabia for a family in Dammam,” she said.
“Pospawalli told us she was located far from the Saudi capital, around five hours drive from Riyadh. She often told us that the family she was working for had no landline in their summer home. It was impossible to call or receive calls for a long time. Our parents took care of her children while she was away and she would send her salary to them,” she said.
“We are all manual workers and earn low wages. We cannot afford to fly to Saudi Arabia or hire a lawyer. We simply do not have the money to do so. Some kind-hearted people could help us," said Saroja.

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown on 'Asian' sex gangs
We should not hold back from condemning Muslim abusers of young girls on the grounds that the BNP also condemns them. The BNP is right about Islam, even if it uses Islam as a way to arouse hatred of non-whites. Similarly, the fact that Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is a moral idiot on most subjects doesn't detract from her pertinent comments on this one. From The Independent:
The criminals feel they did no wrong. These girls to them are trash, asking to be wasted – unlike their own women, who must be kept from the disorderly world out there. The whore and the virgin are both feared and severely controlled and abused. A 2005 study in the Netherlands of Muslim males found the same bifurcation, and identified deep sexism as responsible for both.
The conversations can be heard every day around dining tables and on streets; they are embedded in thought and language. I once interviewed the mother of a man who had been convicted of repeatedly raping his young wife, who came from a rural village in Pakistan. The head of the nursery school the couple's child attended had helped the victim report what was happening. In Urdu, the mother hissed: "How lucky was she to get my son? The dirty, ungrateful bitch – went to a white woman to complain. They sleep with everybody. She just didn't know how to make him happy. We have thrown her out. She can go on the streets like those whites now."
I have been writing about these culturally- sanctioned injustices for two decades, and have interviewed countless people. I will not melt the misdemeanours into generalities, and do not accept that ethnicity and sexual abuse cannot and should not ever be linked.
Interestingly, Alibhai-Brown mentions the mother's condoning of her son's behaviour. There is, as I have argued here, no sisterhood in Islam. In Muslim countries, as a means of self-preservation, women must side with their "superiors" rather than with other women, and many hold to these attitudes in their closed communities in the West.
In the case of the "Asian" sex gangs in the North and the Midlands, I find it impossible to believe that their wives, sisters and mothers knew nothing of the men's activities. But even if they disapproved, how could they say so without risking a beating? In any case, if they are good Muslimahs, they cannot condemn their menfolk for exercising their Allah-given rights. Easier - and more Islamic - to blame the infidel sluts.

Islamic Debate: 'Should we kill all of them, or just some of them?'
"Moderate" Muslims in Saudi Arabia are coming out to denounce threats made during Friday prayers against ALL non-Muslims, saying only those who "transgress" should be targeted. Ah, but aren't non-Muslims by definition "transgressing" when they fail to submit to the will of Allah, and instead continue to practice forbidden false religions? Aye, there's the rub.
When a Muslim prays for the destruction of infidels, note that in Islam, it is devout Muslims who carry out Allah's retribution. Muslims do not leave it to Allah to punish the infidel. Allah demands that His followers do His killing in His name.
Have you EVER heard a Christian or Jewish (or Hindu or Buddhist) cleric incite for the murder of members of another religion during religious services? I believe that Islam is fairly unique in this regard. While it is nice that the "moderates" do not want to kill ALL non-Muslims, I think non-Muslims would be wise to take note of the debate taking place in the first place.
By Galal Fakkar for Arab News:
More scholars join calls for stopping supplications against non-Muslims
JEDDAH: The number of religious scholars calling for a stop in supplications against non-Muslims has increased with renowned Saudi scholar Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Fouzan Al-Fouzan joining them.
“These supplications are an aggression against non-Muslims,” said Al-Fouzan, who is also a member of the Saudi Human Rights Commission. “This is against the spirit of Islam. The imams should instead pray to Allah to guide them toward the path of righteousness,” said Al-Fouzan, while describing supplications against non-Muslims as unjust.
Supplications against non-Muslims are often made by some imams of mosques following the second Friday sermon. This is especially the case following developments in volatile regions across the world when passions run high.
The practice has, however, been deemed wrong by numerous scholars. Al-Fouzan said the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) used to pray to Allah to guide people and show them the road to monotheism and righteousness. “The Prophet used to say he was not sent to people (with the message of Islam) as a preacher of curse but as a man of mercy,” Al-Fouzan said.
These "moderate" scholars are on thin ice here, because the Qur'an clearly calls for warfare against non-Muslims. Does this sound like a call for mercy:
Qur’an 9:73 “O Prophet, strive hard [fight] against the unbelievers and the Hypocrites, and be harsh with them. Their abode is Hell, an evil refuge indeed.”
Qur’an 33:60 “Truly, if the Hypocrites stir up sedition, if the agitators in the City do not desist, We shall urge you to go against them and set you over them. Then they will not be able to stay as your neighbors for any length of time. They shall have a curse on them. Whenever they are found, they shall be seized and slain without mercy—a fierce slaughter—murdered, a horrible murdering.”
Qur’an 47:33 “Believers, obey Allah, and obey the Messenger. Do not falter; become faint-hearted, or weak-kneed, crying for peace.”
He also said he believes people should be called toward Islam through righteous conduct and firm faith, not by cursing or malediction. “We should not generalize our praying to Allah against all non-Muslims including Jews and Christians but should only focus our prayer on those who have done us injustice,” he said.
Again, note that "focus our prayer" means prayers for death and destruction. This is not how non-Muslims would 'focus their prayer".
Other leading Saudi scholars have previously issued fatwas asking people not to supplicate against non-Muslims. Sheikh Salman Al-Oudah and Sheikh Abdul Rahman bin Nasser Al-Barak consider it haram to supplicate against non-Muslims.
Al-Oudah has ruled that supplicating for the destruction and total annihilation of non-Muslims is totally against Islamic law, which calls for all people, regardless of faith, to be treated fairly and properly, unless they are transgressors.
And if they are "transgressors", however Islam defines it, they may (or must) then be killed with the full sanction of Allah.
Saad Al-Din Hilali, professor of comparative Fiqh at Azhar University in Egypt, also supports scholars who consider supplicating against non-Muslims as haram. “We should pray to Allah to guide non-believers to Islam. We should only make supplications against them if they attack us,” he said.
A very interesting debate is going on inside Islam, and the kuffar are not paying the least amount of attention to it.

California's Changing Landscape
Victor Davis Hansen travelled around the Fresno area by bicycle and reports:
(...) Here are some general observations about what I saw (other than that the rural roads of California are fast turning into rubble, poorly maintained and reverting to what I remember seeing long ago in the rural South). First, remember that these areas are the ground zero, so to speak, of 20 years of illegal immigration. There has been a general depression in farming — to such an extent that the 20- to-100-acre tree and vine farmer, the erstwhile backbone of the old rural California, for all practical purposes has ceased to exist.
On the western side of the Central Valley, the effects of arbitrary cutoffs in federal irrigation water have idled tens of thousands of acres of prime agricultural land, leaving thousands unemployed. Manufacturing plants in the towns in these areas — which used to make harvesters, hydraulic lifts, trailers, food-processing equipment — have largely shut down; their production has been shipped off overseas or south of the border. Agriculture itself — from almonds to raisins — has increasingly become corporatized and mechanized, cutting by half the number of farm workers needed. So unemployment runs somewhere between 15 and 20 percent.
Many of the rural trailer-house compounds I saw appear to the naked eye no different from what I have seen in the Third World. There is a Caribbean look to the junked cars, electric wires crisscrossing between various outbuildings, plastic tarps substituting for replacement shingles, lean-tos cobbled together as auxiliary housing, pit bulls unleashed, and geese, goats, and chickens roaming around the yards. The public hears about all sorts of tough California regulations that stymie business — rigid zoning laws, strict building codes, constant inspections — but apparently none of that applies out here.
It is almost as if the more California regulates, the more it does not regulate. Its public employees prefer to go after misdemeanors in the upscale areas to justify our expensive oversight industry, while ignoring the felonies in the downtrodden areas, which are becoming feral and beyond the ability of any inspector to do anything but feel irrelevant. But in the regulators’ defense, where would one get the money to redo an ad hoc trailer park with a spider web of illegal bare wires?
Many of the rented-out rural shacks and stationary Winnebagos are on former small farms — the vineyards overgrown with weeds, or torn out with the ground lying fallow. I pass on the cultural consequences to communities from the loss of thousands of small farming families. I don’t think I can remember another time when so many acres in the eastern part of the valley have gone out of production, even though farm prices have recently rebounded. Apparently it is simply not worth the gamble of investing $7,000 to $10,000 an acre in a new orchard or vineyard. What an anomaly — with suddenly soaring farm prices, still we have thousands of acres in the world’s richest agricultural belt, with available water on the east side of the valley and plentiful labor, gone idle or in disuse. Is credit frozen? Are there simply no more farmers? Are the schools so bad as to scare away potential agricultural entrepreneurs? Or are we all terrified by the national debt and uncertain future?
California coastal elites may worry about the oxygen content of water available to a three-inch smelt in the Sacramento–San Joaquin River Delta, but they seem to have no interest in the epidemic dumping of trash, furniture, and often toxic substances throughout California’s rural hinterland. Yesterday, for example, I rode my bike by a stopped van just as the occupants tossed seven plastic bags of raw refuse onto the side of the road. I rode up near their bumper and said in my broken Spanish not to throw garbage onto the public road. But there were three of them, and one of me. So I was lucky to be sworn at only. I note in passing that I would not drive into Mexico and, as a guest, dare to pull over and throw seven bags of trash into the environment of my host.
In fact, trash piles are commonplace out here — composed of everything from half-empty paint cans and children’s plastic toys to diapers and moldy food. I have never seen a rural sheriff cite a litterer, or witnessed state EPA workers cleaning up these unauthorized wastelands. So I would suggest to Bay Area scientists that the environment is taking a much harder beating down here in central California than it is in the Delta. Perhaps before we cut off more irrigation water to the west side of the valley, we might invest some green dollars into cleaning up the unsightly and sometimes dangerous garbage that now litters the outskirts of our rural communities.
We hear about the tough small-business regulations that have driven residents out of the state, at the rate of 2,000 to 3,000 a week. But from my unscientific observations these past weeks, it seems rather easy to open a small business in California without any oversight at all, or at least what I might call a “counter business.” I counted eleven mobile hot-kitchen trucks that simply park by the side of the road, spread about some plastic chairs, pull down a tarp canopy, and, presto, become mini-restaurants. There are no “facilities” such as toilets or washrooms. But I do frequently see lard trails on the isolated roads I bike on, where trucks apparently have simply opened their draining tanks and sped on, leaving a slick of cooking fats and oils. Crows and ground squirrels love them; they can be seen from a distance mysteriously occupied in the middle of the road.
At crossroads, peddlers in a counter-California economy sell almost anything. Here is what I noticed at an intersection on the west side last week: shovels, rakes, hoes, gas pumps, lawnmowers, edgers, blowers, jackets, gloves, and caps. The merchandise was all new. I doubt whether in high-tax California sales taxes or income taxes were paid on any of these stop-and-go transactions.
In two supermarkets 50 miles apart, I was the only one in line who did not pay with a social-service plastic card (gone are the days when “food stamps” were embarrassing bulky coupons). But I did not see any relationship between the use of the card and poverty as we once knew it: The electrical appurtenances owned by the user and the car into which the groceries were loaded were indistinguishable from those of the upper middle class....

All charges dropped against EDL leader, 24 hours before trial
Tommy Robinson, founder and leader of the EDL was so offended at the burning of the poppy by the Muslims against Crusaders on Armistice day, November 11th last year, that he vaulted the barrier of the EDL compound in an attempt to wrest their black flag of Islam to the ground. As he did so the flag glanced against the head of a Police officer. The slight and accidental nature of the incident is quite clear from the video footage shot which I have seen.
Tommy was charged with assaulting a Police Officer and bailed to attend Court on 12th January. All Christmas and New Year this has hung over him, his supportive parents, his wife and their young family. However I am pleased to say that less than 24 hours before the trial the charges have been dropped.
Meanwhile those members of MAC arrested and charged for public order offences are due for a preliminary hearing tomorrow prior to their trials next month.

Spanish government sponsors PA TV ad calling for boycott of all Israeli products
From Palestine Media Watch:
Last week Palestinian Authority TV started broadcasting an ad promoting the boycott of all Israeli products.
The ad is sponsored by the Spanish government, the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs and AECID - the Spanish governmental humanitarian aid development.
Click to view
The TV ad opens as a Palestinian boy enters a store and overhears a conversation. A customer informs the shopkeeper that "they're plastering the city with advertisements about boycotting Israeli goods." The shopkeeper argues that he has to offer Israeli goods because the Palestinian customers demand it. The customer agrees adding that "Israeli products are better than the local products."
The shopkeeper then ask the boy him what he wants. The boy looks at the Israeli products in the store and says: "I want Israeli chips." He takes the chips, walks to the door, and then hears gunfire, presumably from Israeli soldiers, and he decides that he will not buy Israeli goods. He looks to each side, drops the chips on the floor, returns to the shopkeeper and says: "I don't want the Israeli product, I want the Palestinian product."
The ad ends with this text on the screen:
"Don't prolong the occupation's life upon our land,"
while displaying the logo of the Palestinian NGO Health Work Committees, followed by the logos of the ad's sponsors.
Relentless. The Jihad is in full flight. For more of this stuff just in relation to "Palestine" Click here to view PMW's website
Spain is in compliance with Sharia. Submission as required.
"The Jew" is not entitled to live in his own land* under his own government and law.
Not according to Islamic Sharia
No "the Jew" must submit and live [with NO legal rights, including No right to life, never mind to property] under Muslim rule - unless this time around the Muslim ruler/s decide/s enough is enough and "the Jews" must disappear for once and for all.
Hamas, Fathah, Hezbollah, Islamic Jihad, Islamic Shmihad, Al This, Al That, Al the Other will be fighting for the "right" to dispense their brand of "peace" and "justice."
*Population in 1898 of "Palestine" including what is today Jordan (78% of mandatory Palestine that the appeasing British government just gave to the Arabs with no authority) was 200,000, including 40,000 Jews, according to US Consul reports in 1898 - I have the report - so anyone who wants to can figure that "the Jews" were/are being set up and the whole thing about the millions and millions (from Time Immemorial) of "Palestinians" is a ruse - a Jihad ruse.
Imagine England one day - what will the displaced, English people call their national liberation movement?
The St George and the Dragonists or maybe the Westministerists?
Kind of like "the Zionists" maybe?
A landless people with Muslim masters. A people struggling to get their country back?
And what will the displaced Welsh call themselves? The Welsh Lyricists sound melodious.
And the Scots? The Lets Free Mass Murderers For Financial Gainists perhaps?
And the Irish? The Irish Hopelessly Pro Palestinianists maybe? IHPP, sounds good.
And what will the Spanish call themselves?
The IDIOTISTAS maybe? Or maybe the RE-IDIOTISTAS?

As Jerusalem Is Al-Quds, Spain Is Al-Andaluz
Now the Spanish government is not only permitting, but is actually paying for ads to promote an anti-Israel boycott
For reasons that are unclear, the Spanish press is virulently anti-Israel, and this might seem to be a matter limited to Spain alone. Unfortunately, the prestige of Spain is high in what may be called the Hispanidad, and the Spanish press -- with anti-Israel cartoons that can hardly be believed -- disseminated throughout the Spanish-speaking lands and, what's more, in the United States too. Until this problem is recognized and measures taken to counter this, Israel will continue to lose ground among a public that bothered just as little as have those in the English or French-speaking world, to find out what the history of the Jews in the Middle East has been, what the mandates system set up by the League of Nations intended to achieve, what the cadastral and demographic history has been of the two vilayets and one sanjak (for Jerusalem) that made up the territory assigned to Mandatory Palestine, for the sole and express purpose (see the Preamble to the Mandate for Palestine) of creating the Jewish National Home , what the history of the wars made on Israel, and the history of Muslim treaty-making with Israel, clearly reveal, when the "Palestinian people" were invented, and for what propagandistic purposes, and what is the nature of the war being waged against the Infidel nation-state of Israel, a war for which there is no solution, and which is being conducted by the Fast Jihadists of Hamah, Hezbollah, and Iran, and the Slow Jihadists of Fatah, who prefer to be patient, and to keep receiving Western aid money because the Fatah men are more worldly, and somewhat more corrupt, than the Truest Believers of Hamas.
What lends the Spanish government's support for those conducting the Slow Jihad against Israel is that apparently there is no recognition of the fact that the war on Israel is only one part of what is now, given OPEC trillions and Muslim immigrant millions, a world-wide Jihad. Israel, if left alone, can take care of itself, But what about the coutnries of Western Europe? On the To-Do List of Islam, priority is given to those places where Muslims once ruled, and no place stands higher, would be more eagerly re-conquered, than Al-Andaluz, Spain.
Does Zapatero know this? Who, in Spain, is following what is said in the Arab and Muslim world about Al-Andaluz?
What exaclty, with the current distempers -- more obvious, perhaps, in Tunisia and Algeria than in Morocco -- in North Africa, where Muislims wish to leave their own lands, but are incapable of understanding that the failures of those same lands, political failure, economic failure, social failure, intellectual failure, moral failure, are an inevitable result of Islam itself, and these disaffected people are trying to get to Western Europe, in order to have better lives, but unfortunately they do not jettison, but bring with them, Islam and, still worse, when confronted with confident Infidels who appear not to quake in their presence or be apolgetic about non-Muslim laws and mores, these Muslim immigrants become more and more attached to their faith, and that can only spell trouble -- disaster really -- for the Infidels among whom they have been allowed, so foolishly, to settle.
If ever there were a case of do not ask to send for whom the bell tolls, it's here, with the Spanish not realizing that Spain is merely a slightly-displaced Israel. But they'll learn.
Quaere: will it be before the next assault, aided and abetted by this bankrupt -- in every sense -- government of Zapatero, or will it be after?

Leo Rennert: A Gentleman In A Dustcoat Trying To Make Mr. Brauchli Hear
Dear Mr. Brauchli:
At first, it seemed that it may just have been an oversight that accounts for the fact that the Washington Post has turned Palestinian wishful-thinking about Jerusalem into actual reality. But it wasn't just a one-time mistake . It again pops up in a Jan. 11 dispatch by Jerusalem correspondent Joel Greenberg ("Netanyahu rejects Clinton criticism" page A10).
What startled me in reading this piece was a reference to Adnan Husseini objecting to plans for 20 Jewish apartments on a Jerusalem spot where once stood a villa of the Grand Mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini, who aligned himself with Hitler and fomented Arab pogroms that killed many hundreds of Jews;
The startling, surreal part is Greenberg's identification of Adnan Husseini, a descendant of the Mufti, as "the Palestinian Authority's governor of Jerusalem."
That can't be, can it? Does this mean that Nir Barkat is no longer Jerusalem's mayor, but has been succeeded by a Palestinain governor? From Greenberg's writing, it sure looks like a done deal.
But after checking other media references to Adnan Husseini, it dawned on me that the Washington Post simply has reached the bottom of a slippery semantic slope that gradually transformed his job description from an advisor on Jerusalem affairs to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, to PA minister for Jersualem, to PA-appointed mayor of Jerusalem (the Reuters version) to the final, formal promotion and recognition of Adnan Husseini by the Washington Post as the PA's "governor of Jerusalem."
If words still have precise meanings -- a debatable proposition when dealing with the Washington Post -- calling Adnan Husseini "governor of Jerusalem" makes him unequivocally the political ruler of Israel's capital. Barkat is out; Husseini is in. Israel's rule of the capital is out. The Palestinians have taken over the city. Jerusalem is ruled by their "governor."
This is not a small matter. The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has many dimensions. And one important dimension is a battle over vocabulary -- something Orwell well understood. To Palestinian leaders, reality doesn't seem to matter. The medium controls the message. Thus, pro-Palestinian media like the Post hav erased any notion of Palestinian "terrorism" or Palestinian "terrorists." There are only Palestinian "militants" who kill Israeli civilians. Mahmoud Abbas, an avowed admirer of suicide bomber who contests Jewish historical and religious ties to Jerusalem, is transformed into a "moderate" peace partner.
And so now the Washington Post shoves aside Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat and replaces him with Adnan Husseini, "governor of Jerusalem."
Another Orwellian twist in pursuit of a pro-Palestinian agenda. As Orwell himself observed, "Political language is designed to make lies truthful and murder resepctable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind."

The Left has disappeared up its own backside trying to defend Muslim child-rapists. But few have combined moral bankruptcy with pretension quite so well as Richard Seymour, AKA Lenin's Tomb, whose side-splitting "philosophical dialogue", based on Galilleo's Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, will cheer up those teenage moaning minnies. How silly of that white slut to take it so literally when a Muslim "youth" rapes her and passes her to her uncle and brother for more:
Simplicio: "Muslim paedophiles are preying on white girls."
Sagredo: "No, they're not. The story is rigged, based on non-random data selection and wholly invented categories designed to generate the outcome sought. If I worked by the same principles, I could prove that 100% of fraudsters are Conrad Black. More authentic research on this shows that predation on children is a national problem that culture and ethnicity does not help to explain. The overwhelming majority of child predators in the UK who are caught and convicted are white, yet there is no general rush to investigate the possible racial or cultural sources of their cold, arrogant rationalisations for torturing children. Nor is there any good evidence that the victims are selected for ethnicity, though one can always count on policemen and bourgeois politicians to claim otherwise."
Simplicio: "But are you denying that there are real antagonisms?"
Sagredo: "No, I'm saying that there's no truth behind the racist rumour that 'Muslim paedophiles are preying on white girls'."
Simplicio: "But this is a dangerous inflation of terms! You can't call it racist just because someone draws attention to real problems."
Sagredo: "But the problem as described is not the real problem, and the practise of criminalising minorities is racist."
Simplicio: "This is circular. Something is racist because you say it is racist. What this thetic presentation ignores is that the heuristic of 'race' needs to be examined far more critically than it can be by the liberal multiculturalist paradigm which always-already invests in racist ontology as the basis for its supposedly 'tolerant' praxis. This is what I was doing. Okay, I shocked you by raising the question of Muslim paedophiles. But don't idealise them! For example, did you know - I checked this, my accountant who is Italian and has Muslim neighbours told me this - that Muhammed married a nine year old? And we should acknowledge this instead of playing the stupid liberal game of disavowal."
Sagredo: "Well, here I will shock you by pointing out that Muhammed died more than a millenium ago and doesn't live in the north-east of England. The only way in which the story of Muhammed and Aisha could possibly be relevant here would be if you did in fact invest in a racist ontology of the sort that leads to young white racists chanting 'Allah is a paedo' at full volume. The question is, are the allegations concerning Muslim men being particularly likely to prey on white girls due to cultural assumptions actually true?"
Simplicio: "I am sorry to say that this is political correctness at its most boring. Your approach is to consistently shout down anyone who draws attention to a real problem as a racist, and then focus on 'facts', as if this was simply an empirical question. No. I claim it is more than that. This naive Chomskyite empiricism is not sufficient. In order to judge whether something is racist, it is necessary to do the hard theoretical work."
Sagredo: "Okay, let's do the hard theoretical work. And then we can get back to whether your allegations are actually true?"
Simplicio: "It is silly to look for truth in argumentation. Argumentation is born of discourse and ideology. Facts are stories, and no story is neutral."
Sagredo: "Fuck off."
Remember that, girls. Hard theoretical work is all you need. And a good theoretical man is hard to find. Lie back and think of diversity. E pur si muove, as they say in Rochdale.

Southern Sudan: 20 police die in attack by Arab tribe
JUBA, Sudan Southern Sudan's military spokesman says 20 policemen in the disputed north-south region of Abyei have been killed and 30 more wounded in two attacks by Arab tribesmen and militia.
Col. Philip Aguer said Monday that he believes the Arab tribesmen are supported by north Sudan's military. Aguer said the tribesmen attacked the police with anti-tank weapons and artillery.
Aguer says the attack came Sunday, the day that Southern Sudan began voting in an independence referendum likely to split Sudan in two and create the world's newest country.
Abyei, which lies on the north-south faultline, had been promised a separate self-determination vote, but its future is now being decided by north-south negotiations.
Mahmud Abubakar waited in line to vote twice. On Sunday, he said, he got in line at 8 a.m. but abandoned the queue at 1 p.m. still far from the ballot box. On Monday he got in line at 7 a.m. and cast his ballot four hours later in between ancient-looking lab tables at Juba University. He said he didn't mind waiting. "We have suffered long enough. We want separation," Abubaker, 31, said.
Juma Salah, the head of the electoral workers at the university, said lines were much shorter Monday despite the four-hour wait. Still, two queues snaked around the chemistry building. Southerners, who mainly define themselves as African, have long resented their underdevelopment, accusing the northern Arab-dominated government of taking their oil revenues without investing in the south.
Because only 15 percent of southern Sudan's 8.7 million people can read, the ballot choices were as simple as could be: a drawing of a single hand marked "separation" and another of clasped hands marked "unity."
"I'm black," voter Jenaro Kwajok Pierssio said while pinching his skin. "No unity."
About 3.9 million people registered to vote. A simple majority must vote for separation for the referendum to pass, but 60 percent of registered voters must cast ballots for the vote to be valid. Results will trickle in after polls close Saturday, but results won't be finalized until February.

What the BBC, and the ABC, disgustingly, had to say about that demolished 'hotel' in 'Arab East Jerusalem'
On reading Mr Jonathan Tobin's article about that demolished building in Jerusalem, and who it was who most famously resided there, I realized that I have a letter to write. Australia's ABC will be getting a very sharp letter from me, enclosing Mr Tobin's article, with the most telling portions conveniently highlighted.
For *this*, channelling the veiled venom of the BBC's report on the matter, is the report that the Australia's ABC chose to place on its online news website. And there is nary a mention of that villa having been constructed for Haj Amin al-Husseini, friend and ally of Hitler, fan of the Final Solution, inciter of the mass-murderous 'Farhud' or Muslim pogrom against Iraqi Jews.
Here it is, for others to inspect, and dissect. It is totally typical of its kind.
'Bulldozers demolish East Jerusalem hotel'. (Why 'East Jerusalem'? Why not just...'Jerusalem'? Or, 'Old City'? - CM).
'Israeli bulldozers have flattened part of a building in occupied East Jerusalem (sic: it would be more truthful to write simply 'Jerusalem' or 'the Old City of Jerusalem' - CM) to make way for new homes for Jewish settlers (sic - CM. I would have written - 'Jerusalem Jews').
'The partial demolition of the Shepherd Hotel complex went ahead despite international objections, including from the United States.
'A spokesman for the Palestinian (sic - CM) president says the demolition had ended any possibility of the Palestinians (sic: local Arab Muslims - CM) returning to peace talks with Israel.
Rubbish. Supposing the hotel hadn't been demolished, the local Arab Muslims would have a different excuse, - CM.
'The bulldozers moved in just before dawn, making light work of the former hotel complex in the heart of Sheikh Jarrah, a suburb of Arab East Jerusalem.
'Arab East Jerusalem'. Which, if I recall correctly, contains the Old City, with the Temple Mount, and the historic Jewish Quarter - CM.
'Both Israel and the Palestinians (sic: local Arab Muslims - CM) claim (sic: but Israel's right to the place is not a 'claim', my dear BBC and ABC - CM) Jerusalem as their future capital.
ABC, BBC - get your facts straight. Jerusalem - all of Jerusalem, and most especially its most ancient and historic districts, such as the Mount of Olives, the Old City with the Jewish Quarter, and the Temple Mount - is not the 'claimed' 'future' capital but the actual here-and-now capital of the Jewish state of Israel. And I spit in the eye of any antisemitic Islamophile janissary of the Jihad against the Jews, who says otherwise. - CM.
'but Israel (rightly - CM) says the entire city is its territory and it therefore reserves the right to build anywhere in Jerusalem.
'The hotel was owned by an Arab family before 1967 but was bought by a Jewish-American millionaire in 1985'.
The sly venom simply drips off the pen, in that implicit contrast between a humbly domestic 'Arab family' and a sinister money-grubbing 'Jewish-American millionaire'.
No mention, not at all, of the fact that the Arab Muslim with whom most famously the demolished edifice is associated, was an enthusiastic ally of the Nazis and fan of the Final Solution, inciter of the ghastly 'farhud' pogrom against the Jews of Iraq. Neither the BBC nor the ABC will let us even hear the name of Haj Amin al-Husseini, or tell us what kinds of things he did, and incited other Muslims to do. - CM.

Noblesse oblige, or, heroism as we in the West account it
In dar al Islam, power, if one has it , seems generally to be seen as there to be used to the max for the personal advantage of the possessor...and the weak go to the wall. In free Western societies, on the other hand, noblesse obliges, and those with power - in this case seniority and strength - may well choose not to push to the head of the queue. And instead of flinging their weight around they will use their strength to serve and save.
Two stories of the courage and love of elder brothers, from the Queensland floods.
First, in the main streets of Toowoomba, suddenly a death trap.
'Teen gives life to save brother'.
'Toowoomba boy Jordan Rice, 13, has been remembered as a hero after he let his younger brother be rescued first, seconds before he and his mother Donna were swept to their deaths in the CBD...
'Donna Rice's partner of 28 years, John Tyson, yesterday told The Chronicle how his beloved partner and their son perished.
'Ms Rice, and sons Jordan, 13, and Blake, 10, were driving at the intersection of James and Kitchener Streets about 2 pm on Monday when they drove through water which at the time was only up to their car wheels. However, their car engine stopped, and Ms Rice called triple zero for help. She was unable to call anyone else as she had no phone credit.
'The triple zero operator told the family to stay put and they were forced to climb onto the roof of their car after the floodwater rose rapidly.
'Mr Tyson said no help came and bystanders watching the family did not offer help.
"All these people were just standing around until an old scrawny guy (here is the other hero of the piece ; note, it was an 'old scrawny guy' , just as it was two old guys who jumped Congresswoman Gifford's attacker - heroes come in unlikely shapes and ages - CM) grabbed a bit of rope, wrapped it around himself, and jumped in," Mr Tyson said.
'Jordan can't swim and is terrified of water.
"But when the man went to rescue him, he said, 'save my brother first'".
That is: the 13 year old elder brother thought first not of himself but of his little brother. - CM.
'Mr Tyson said the man rescued Blake and tried to tie the rope around Jordan and Ms Rice but it broke. They were swept downstream. The pair was briefly able to hang onto a tree, but was overcome by the force of raging floodwaters.
'Mr Tyson wept as he told of his son's bravery, when he knew how terrifying their last moments were. "I can only imagine what was going on inside to give up his life and save his brother, even though he was petrified of water", he said. "He is our little hero"...
'Mr Tyson and Ms Rice, 43, have four sons together - Christ, Kyle, Jordan, and Blake.
'He (Mr Tyson) wished to thank the Good Samaritan who came to his family's help and rescued their son Blake.
'The family had just picked up Jordan's high school uniforms that morning as he was due to start Year 8'".
There were two men, as we of the free West define manhood, in the street that day; the 'scrawny old guy' with a bit of rope, risking his life entering wild water to save strangers in peril - and the terrified 13 year old, whose first thought was not for himself but for the safety of his little brother.
My second story is that of a big brother and his younger sister.
'A growing list of lost souls' (these being the people killed in the terrible flash floods in Toowoomba and Grantham on 11 January - CM).
'Two teenagers huddled in the ceiling of their home after their parents were swept to their death by a wall of water...
'Sarah Norman yesterday told how her brother Sam, 20, punched a hole in the laundry ceiling and pushed their sister Victoria, 15, to safety, after water started flooding the home at midday on Monday.
"He went back to get Mum and Dad, but they had just gone," Ms Norman said. "Victoria heard Mum scream".
'Mr Matthews and his wife had been about to join their children when Mrs Matthews got trapped in the kitchen by a fridge that floated across a doorway. As Mr Matthews went back for his wife a wall collapsed and both were swept away by floodwaters.
'Family friend Jim Hitchener said Sam and Victoria spent an hour in the ceiling, as trees crashed into the house and a "river of water" ran through the home, almost reaching the ceiling.
'He said Sam then punched a hole through the roof, and when the waters subsided, he dragged Victoria to higher ground, and they crossed a creek to reach his sister Sarah's home...".
Twenty years old, in a desperate situation, he used his strength and wits to save not only himself but his little sister.
These are the kinds of young men - and old men, too, like the scrawny old guy with the rope - that we still have in the lands of the non-Muslims; and more of them, one hopes, than anyone guesses.

Magdi Allam: A Mosque In Turin Will Be A "Time Bomb"
"La moschea a Torino?
Una bomba a orologeria"
Hanno sfilato in trecento per dire no all'intolleranza
Una manifestazione che ha fatto rumore, scuotendo il freddo e sonnolento pomeriggio torinese. I cristiani copti di Torino, trecento persone secondo gli organizzatori, hanno sfilato ieri in corteo per le strade del centro, dalla chiesa dell'Immacolata Concezione di via San Donato fino a piazza Castello. Obiettivo: esprimere solidarietà alla comunità religiosa di Alessandria d'Egitto, vittima nella notte di Capodanno di un attentato ad opera dei fondamentalisti islamici che ha causato ventitrè vittime. Non solo. Negli slogan urlati dai manifestanti lungo tutto il tragitto c'è anche rabbia e denuncia: «Basta sangue», «Ieri in Egitto, domani in Europa», «Noi non siamo carne da macello».
Inevitabile il riferimento alla futura moschea di Torino, con la bordata al sindaco: «Alla fine del suo mandato, Chiamparino [mayor of Torino] lascia alla città una bomba ad orologeria pronta ad esplodere». Parole di Magdi Cristiano Allam, scandite in piazza Castello, attorniato dagli uomini della scorta. L'europarlamentare e fondatore del movimento «Io amo l'Italia» ha usato parole di fuoco contro la paventata islamizzazione delle società occidentali: «Il Corano incita alla violenza e all'odio contro cristiani. Non siamo di fronte a schegge impazzite o isolati seguaci di Bin Laden, ma a un disegno organico per cacciare i cristiani dalle loro terre».
Gli attentati contro i copti d'Egitto, secondo Allam, musulmano per 56 anni e convertitosi al cristianesimo nel 2008, «sono in continuità con la persecuzione dei cristiani nel mediterraneo meridionale: dal dopoguerra ad oggi, dieci milioni di fedeli sono scappati da situazioni di discriminazione». Sulla moschea ribadisce: «È un luogo difficilmente controllabile nel quale spesso si fomenta l'odio: si faccia un referendum per vedere se i torinesi la vogliono».

On Integrating Muslims Into The West
On an NPR station I heard a very smooth-talking Muslim from Holland, like Hirsi Ali only in that she is, apparently, also a member of the Dutch Parliament, speak about how there is "fear on both sides" -- Dutch and Muslim -- and that Muslims who feel problems of "identity" embrace "Islamism" because, she said, they simply cannot go back to Turkey or Morocco (why not?) because they are now "Dutch."
In what sense, exactly, are they Dutch? What is it about the Dutch laws, customs, manners, or history that they comprehend and fully identify with? Anything? Or is their "Dutchness" merely a matter of where they are, geographic happenstance -- and then also a matter of knowing Dutch, or possibly a bastardized form of it, which will not do as a definition of "Dutchness" that should satisfy any of the Dutch themselves, even if at one time it seemed to?
She did not explain this, this plausible sounding lady, who spoke excellent English and who no doubt would welcome the "integration" of other Muslims -- that is, their being well-versed in the local languages of whatever Infidel country they happen to have settled in, and well-versed enough in the way the locals think to better appeal to them, better conduct propaganda and apologetics, either to deflect any criticism of Islam and Muslims, or to actively conduct Da'wa among the Infidels.
And the height of absurdity was reached -- though apparently the interviewer, on a program called "The World," did not find it absurd – when the lady said that the poor Muslims were being asked to choose between their Dutch identity and their Muslim identity. This, she insisted, was like asking someone to choose between his mother and his father. But the analogy is false. In this case, Islam is not the loyal wedded spouse of Holland and the Dutch. Islam, rather, is an alien creed. To be sure, plenty of Believers in exotic creeds alien or new to the West have managed to fit in perfectly well, and be friendly neighbors and loyal citizens, even if they came from Vietnam or India or China. Only one group, only one belief-system, distinguishes itself by appearing incapable of fitting in. And that is Muslims, and Islam. For their belief-system does not envision a Holland, an Italy, an England, a France. Islam does not distinguish between the various components of one single unit, the Dar al-Harb, the regions of the world were Islam does not yet reign and Muslims do not yet dominate. The analogy, while it may have fooled some and won sympathy for local Muslims in Holland who are "forced to choose between their mother and their father," is ridiculous.
Now there is a problem in France. Will government-funded monitored mosques, language teaching, and affirmative-action programs for Muslims (but not for all those non-troublemaking Vietnamese, and Chinese, and non-Muslim blacks from sub-Saharan Africa or the Caribbean, Hindus and Sikhs, since these people can integrate, and so there is no need to do special favors for them) solve the problem? It will not.
"Integration" will only lead to a loss of precious time. It will continue to hold out hope, when there is no hope for real integration. What is in the Qur'an, the Hadith, and the Sira, though it may not always be fully comprehended or distributed, remains, cannot be changed, and can always be appealed to by any Muslim who wishes. There is no way that those so-called, very slippery "moderate" Muslims can suggest that no, it is the "extremists" who are untrue to Islam. They aren't untrue. They are perfectly loyal Muslims, good and righteous followers of that exemplar Muhammad. No Muslim can contend otherwise, although of course that is what many Muslims are doing -- attempting to make Infidels believe that there is no problem, or that the problem can somehow be fixed. Yet they never tell us exactly how they are going to change those texts, those passages in the Qur'an, the Hadith, the Sira. And they cannot explain, and will not discuss, the real history of Muslim conquest and mistreatment of non-Muslims. For that matter, they will not explain, nor discuss, the treatment of Christians, Jews, Hindus, Sikhs, Zoroastrians (yes, about 150,000 remain in Iran), and all other non-Muslims. Why won't they? Because they can't.
If integration can't work, except to benefit Muslims and keep the day of Infidel comprehension from arriving in time, and if non-integration can't work, what then?
At this point some will prefer -- since there is no solution that we find "thinkable" -- not to think about anything, and to go back to the previous state of denial. Just pretend that somehow things will work out. Pretend that Islam is not what it is. Pretend that the spicy lamb with cumin you were served at a Mosque Outreach Iftar is all ye know about Islam, and all ye need to know. Umm, the food. Umm, Muslims can be so nice, so soft-spoken, so hospitable. And that chicken with pita! No, there will have to be something a bit more substantive about the tenets of Islam. But if one really knew what Islam contained, as not all Muslims born or raised in the West may quite realize, then how could any decent person remain a Muslim? Hard to explain the hold of this belief-system on so many who cannot, out of some kind of diseased loyalty, insist on standing up for it. They needn't.
The solution is to stop all Muslim migration to the Lands of the Infidels, and wherever possible, to reverse it. This can be done by taking care to ruthlessly enforce the immigration laws when it comes to those who, by virtue of their beliefs, are not unreasonably deemed to constitute a group that supports, actively or passively, those who do not wish this or any Infidel country well, in its laws, customs, manners, understandings, and will work, are required as a duty to work, for the triumph of Islam --and hence for changing those laws, those customs, those manners, those understandings.
And along with it, in ways little and big, the country can be Islam-proofed the way a house is child-proofed. Instead of letting the Saudis buy land and build mosques, and paying for the upkeep and the staffing of those mosques, let them be monitored so that no foreign money, or any money judged tainted, can be used to pay for mosques or madrasas. Monitor what is said in khutbas. At the first sign of hate-preaching, do not merely be satisfied if a congregation removes the current imam. Close the mosque. Put everyone on notice that this kind of thing cannot go on. Nor can it be allowed in any of the textbooks used in madrasas. Close any madrasa that makes allusion to smiting the Unbelievers. Since the division between Believer and Infidel is so central to Islam, and since the Jihad is a virtual "sixth pillar" of Islam, it should not be hard to find ways to limit the spread or practice of Islam. And if in addition to whatever local, state and federal government officials do, private parties simply conduct their own boycott of goods and services offered by Muslims, in the same way that they would have refused to buy, in 1938, a German Voigtlander camera, or in 1953, to buy Baltic amber from the Soviet government's official trading-with-the-West ministry, Vneshtorg or something like it. Why should one buy an oriental rug, or dates, or curry powder, from people whose presence, in merely swelling Muslim ranks, will inevitably swell Muslim political power -- which, in turn, makes the lives of Infidels, in the end, more insecure?
If people born into Islam are at long last free to investigate fully what Islam is all about, and having done so, they still insist on remaining loyal to Islam, there is no reason for Infidels to support or indulge them on some specious theory that Islam cannot really teach what it teaches, and that adherents of Islam cannot possibly want what they are taught, according to Islam, to want: the spread of Islam, and the submission of all non-Muslims to, at best, the status assigned them in Islam of dhimmi.
Why should we tolerate this? On what theory? On what grounds?

Iraqi immigrant to stand trial in daughter's death
An update to this story. By Bob Christie for AP:
PHOENIX – An Iraqi immigrant accused of killing his daughter because he believed she was too Westernized will go to trial in Phoenix after he failed to reach a plea deal with prosecutors.
Prosecutors and attorneys for Faleh Hassan Almaleki had been in discussions about a plea deal for weeks ahead of a scheduled Jan. 18 trial date. Barring a last-minute deal that appears unlikely, Maricopa County Superior Court Judge Roland Steinle said at a hearing Tuesday that he would call two large groups of potential jurors next week.
Police allege Almaleki slammed his Jeep into his 20-year-old daughter, Noor Almaleki, and her boyfriend's mother in October 2009 in the parking lot of a state Department of Economic Security office in the Phoenix suburb of Peoria.
The mother lived, but Noor was in a coma for two weeks before she died from her injuries.
Almaleki has pleaded not guilty to first-degree murder, attempted first-degree murder, aggravated assault and leaving the scene of a serious injury accident.
Almaleki, who turned 50 on Jan. 1, remains in custody. He attended the hearing in shackles in the jury box, wearing a back brace over his faded black and white striped county jail garb and pink undershirt.
Back brace? That poor man. The "thump thump" must've really jarred the car as he drove over his daughter and the other woman. I hope the jury gives him all due sympathy.
After the hearing ended, Almaleki interrupted through an interpreter, saying "I don't know what's going on so far."
I'm sure this is all very confusing. Back in Dar al-Islam, a Muslim man who killed his daughter to restore the family honor would face no retribution from the legal system. Why are the kuffar disregarding his traditional rights as a Muslim man and humiliating him in this fashion?
The case caused nationwide outrage after prosecutors deemed it an "honor killing" because Almaleki had said his daughter dishonored his family and became too Westernized.
Faleh Almaleki moved his family from Iraq to the Phoenix suburb of Glendale in the mid-1990s.
He wanted Noor to adhere to Iraqi traditions, but she wanted to be a typical American girl, according to court records and her close friends.
When she was 17, she refused to enter an arranged marriage in Iraq, enraging her father, according to a court document filed by prosecutors.
She moved into her own apartment at 19 and began working at a fast-food restaurant but quit after her parents kept showing up at her work, insisting she return home, the document said.
Later in 2009, she moved in with her boyfriend and his parents, Reikan and Amal Khalaf, after saying her parents had hit her.
The court document said Faleh Almaleki regularly harassed his daughter and the Khalafs, once telling Reikan Khalaf that if his daughter didn't move out of their home, "something bad was going to happen."
