"The most daunting danger exposed by the underwear bombing is a danger that originates among Great Britain’s radicalized Muslims."
The danger isn't only from "radicalized Muslims," the danger is from Muslims, not because they've been born, no one can be held responsible to what religion they're born to, but because they are Muslims.
Islam itself represents the real danger, in the absence of a few (million) "extremist" Muslims getting hold of nuclear weapons or other WMD.
Islam's ideology since inception has been world conquest and rule of all "mankind .... in accordance with Islamic Shari'ah" (CDHRI*) which law affords us kafirs (Non-Muslims is a politically corrected term) no legal rights whatsoever. None, not even the right to life and no right to property.
I'll say it again:
No legal rights for kafirs under Islamic Shari'ah.
Why is no one saying this?
I'll say it again:
No legal rights for kafirs under Islamic Shari'ah.
The problem is Islam and the problem is being made worse by people like Frum, with his reputation as a neo-con for heaven's sake, either not getting it or not wanting to get it.
It is late in the day.
"In a column this week, The New York Times’ Tom Friedman imagines the thoughts of young Abdulmutallab’s father: “My family system, our village system, broke down. My own son fell under the influence of a jihadist version of Islam that I do not recognize and have reason to fear.” "
An article by Thomas Friedman in the Dallas News which mentions this can be read here:
Of course Thomas Friedman of the New York times doesn't get it either and if he or Abdulmutallab's father, or Frum for that matter could direct us kafirs to the texts of Islam that say that there is a version of Islam that Thomas Friedman imagines there is or that Abdulmutallab probably knows that there isn't, but would prefer to think, or hope, there is, that would be very helpful.
But in the unlikely event of one or all of them doing this, please, no quoting of the peaceful verses without mentioning the vicious verses, carefully and deviously crafted and then embedded into Shari'ah to define and justify the unjustifiable, that override and make the "peaceful" ones the nonsense they are.
If anyone is able to locate legal rights for kafirs under Islamic Shari'ah please let us all know - I mean "rights" which are not conceded by some benevolent Islamic ruler generously allowing kafir Jews and Christians the right to live with or without paying the jizya.
I have a book written in 1944 by Konrad Heiden, Der Fuehrer. The opening lines of the preface read:
"It is twenty-three years now since I first attended a National Socialist meeting, saw (without particular enjoyment) Herr Hitler at close range, and listened to the flood of nonsense -- or so it then seemed to me -- that he was spouting. It was only gradually that the effects of these speeches made me realise that behind all the nonsense there was unrivalled political cunning." --Der Fuehrer by Konrad Heiden published in 1944, p. v Preface - opening lines.
CIA Bombing Was To Let Americans Know Muslims Won't Betray Islam For Money
Video footage purported to be of the Jordanian bomber who blew up seven CIA agents in Afghanistan has been broadcast on Pakistani and Arabic television.
The video shows a man alleged to be bomber Humam Khalil Abu-Mulal al-Balawi, the Jordanian double agent and suicide bomber, explaining who he is and vowing revenge for Pakistani Taliban chief Baitullah Mehsud's death.
Mehsud's successor, Hakimullah Mehsud, appears to be sat beside him, although he is not named in the video.
He says the Americans and Jordanians offered him millions of dollars to spy on the Mujahadeen, but he went to them and told them everything. Then, they planned the attack. In another article it was alleged that the reason so many CIA officers were present at the meeting was that al-Balawi promised to reveal the hiding place of al Qaeda's second in command, the Jordanian doctor al Zawahiri.

I quite like Kipling, and was pleased when "If" was voted Top Poem in a BBC survey. What's more, the voters meant "If you can keep your head etc" by Kipling, rather than "If a picture paints a thousand words etc" by Bread, Telly Savalas and others. And it was Rudyard Kipling, rather than the Mr Kipling of the ad, who makes "exceedingly good cakes".
When you think about it, though, and even if you don't, "If" is a bit of a circular argument: if you're really great, you'll be really great. And if not, not. Either way it's a big if, but it sounds rather good, and is better than a lot of poems. The Gods of the Copybook Headings is even better, and has been quoted approvingly at this site.
Kipling's poems, however wise, seem to take the form of admonitions and exhortations, so I had always imagined him as rather po-faced. Well, the people of Torquay nearly had a chance to find out, as I learned today when he was quoted in the Spectator:
`Torquay is such a place as I do desire to upset it by dancing through it with nothing on but my spectacles.'
Though Hugh is enamored of a few female singers from the 1920's and early 30's, most notably Annette Hanshaw, I don't think female pop-singing really took off until the late 30's through early 50's. One really wonderful singer from that period is Jo Stafford.
I’m a big believer in certain own brand products in preference to the big names and for years I used Tescos various own toothpastes. Until a few months ago when I noticed that every type was made in China. I hope that Tescos have the purchasing power to ensure that the factories they use are properly run, no human rights abuses and no chance of another poisoned baby milk, poisoned pet food and poisoned toothpaste incident.
But I wasn’t happy for many reasons so I stopped buying it. Why does something as simple as toothpaste have to be imported such a vast distance?
None of the big brands said where their paste was made, other than Arm and Hammer which is probably excellent stuff, is made in the US, but is extremely expensive.
The other supermarket, Sainsburys, has their toothpaste made in Switzerland. For a while I bought that. Nice mountains, nice clocks, minaret ban and the Swiss only kill people on production of a doctor’s certificate, a consent form and rather a large payment.
Then a triumph.
I was out with my Mother-in-law last week and she took me to a branch of the East of England Co-op. May I recommend The Co-operative freshmint toothpaste, made in the UK for the Co-operative group Manchester. 40p for 100ml.
Because of the ice underfoot.
Because of my Christmas present.
Because I have fresh minty Made in England breath.

This is another event that barely registered as a blip in Dar al-Harb (I don't remember this incident at all), but continues to hold great importance in Dar al-Islam.
On July 4, 2003 a group of Turkish Special Forces were arrested by U.S. soldiers for planning the assassination of a Kurdish governor in Iraq. They were forced to wear hoods as they were led away to their interrogation, hence "The Hood event". The wikipedia summary of the event can be found here.
Turkey re-enacted and fictionalized the events in the movie "Valley of the Wolves Iraq", starring Billy Zane as the leader of the evil Americans who humiliate and murder Turkish and Iraqi Muslims. Gary Busey plays the American doctor who steals the Muslims' organs for transplantation. In the Turkeywood version, Turkish patriots eventually track down and kill Zane's character. The movie can be seen here. It's rated PC (Pure Cr*p).
