MFS - The Other News


                         Afternoon Posting.

  • Statement by the President on the Occasion of Ramadan.And here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America,and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country.Hey read the American history "Islam has always been part of America"!Someone trying to rewrite American history?


  • Among the Believers.A new look at the origins of Islam describes a tolerant world that may not have existed.Donner’s book has already been hailed in a manner showing that its thesis appeals deeply to American liberals(Read Obamabots): Here they find the nice, tolerant, and open Islam that they hanker for. If the book attains a wide readership and succeeds in persuading the broad American public that Muslims are not the ogres they tend to imagine, it will have done a useful job. As a contribution to scholarship, however, it leaves something to be desired.The main problem is that the only direct evidence for Donner’s central thesis is the Quranic verses on the believing People of the Book; all the rest is conjecture. The verses in question tell us nothing about events after the death of the Prophet, and it has to be said that the Medinese suras of which they form a part are not suggestive of ecumenicalism. They are full of bitterly hostile polemics against Jews and Christians, both of whom are charged with polytheism, deification of their own leaders, deification of themselves, and more besides. The Jews are faulted for rejecting Jesus, the Christians for deifying him.

  • HT:The JawaReport.AQAP: Overthrow Saudi Monarchy/Kill All Christians.Al-Qaeda urged soldiers to help topple the Saudi monarchy and kill Christians and government officials in the kingdom, said someone purporting to be a leader of the group in a recording.Al-Qaeda ordered supporters in the Saudi army to “collect information on everything related to the Saudi royal family” in an effort to dethrone them, a speaker identified as Saeed al- Shihri said in an Arabic-language recording posted today on a website that often carries al-Qaeda statements. The identity of the speaker could not immediately be verified.Please add to your to do list:"blow up the Dokkae Tower "?Real terrorists don't need a phallus symbol.

  • Lebanon: We'll reject U.S. military aid if weapons can't be used against Israel.Lebanese Defense Minister Elias Murr said he would reject any U.S. military assistance to Lebanon's army if it comes with conditions.Well knowing Obama's "love" for Israel he probably won't object.

  • Video:Man Had Pea Plant Growing in Lung.The good news was he did not have lung cancer.

  • Public approval nosedive--Obama, Democrats crash and burn.In the aftermath of the Democrats' special session of Congress, during the August recess, to cut food stamps from those citizens who suffer in the recession in order to approve a bailout of public school teachers, the latest major poll of likely voters shows that Barack Obama has now fallen to a -22 net disapproval--his lowest yet.The Rasmussen Poll, released just minutes ago, indicates that Obama is headed directly into the 'death zone' of the 30% range in public approval--an historic signal that his party is set to lose both houses of Congress in the November midterm elections.

  • Does The 2012 GOP Convention Logo Include A Minaret?So is it one of the building's six minarets in the RNC logo? Or is it one of the building's four cupolas? It looks to us like the minaret. But look at the picture and judge for yourself.Nooo "They don't trust me cause of my middle name "wouldn't do this would he?

  • U.S. Is Bankrupt and We Don't Even Know:Let’s get real. The U.S. is bankrupt. Neither spending more nor taxing less will help the country pay its bills.

  • HT"MotherJones.The BP Cover-Up.BP and the government say the spill is fast disappearing—but dramatic new science reveals that its worst effects may be yet to come.

  • ‘Non-Terrorist’ Taliban’s Slaughter of Aid Team Latest in Atrocities.As acknowledged in a new State Department report on terrorism, the Taliban also murders and maims Afghan civilians, with special attention to young girls attending school, kills foreign diplomats, and plots against the U.S. homeland. It has, of course, targeted our troops in the nearly nine-year-old war in Afghanistan.But according to the supreme leader they are not terrorists.who is he working for and when will the American people wake up?

  • Muslim Inbreeding: Impacts on intelligence, sanity, health and society.Massive inbreeding within the Muslim culture during the last 1.400 years may have done catastrophic damage to their gene pool. The consequences of intermarriage between first cousins often have serious impact on the offspring's intelligence, sanity, health and on their surroundings.A rough estimate shows that close to half of all Muslims in the world are inbred: In Pakistan, 70 percent of all marriages are between first cousins (so-called "consanguinity") and in Turkey the amount is between 25-30 percent.Also more stillbirths among immigrants"..A large part of inbred Muslims are born from parents who are themselves inbred - which increase the risks of negative mental and physical consequenses greatly.

  • America's Muslim Capitals.While the Ground Zero mosque generates nationwide debate, America has become a country of thousands of mosques, cultural institutions, and halal restaurants. VIEW OUR RANKING of America’s 30 Muslim centers.

  • Ice island ... the unstoppable Arctic giant that threatens to bring more climatic havoc.Potentially in the path of this unstoppable giant are oil platforms and shipping lanes - and any collision could do untold damage.In a worst case scenario, large chunks could reach the heavily trafficked waters where another Greenland iceberg sank the Titanic in 1912.

  • Attractive topless sunbather reported to police by mother of two for 'troubling' her sons on beach.The lawyer said:'Let's be clear my client is tall, brunette and has an ample breast and is therefore going to naturally be sensuous when she applies cream to her chest.I just hope it doesn't "trouble" the jury when watching her rub her breasts with lotion?

  • Jeffrey Goldberg Probes Israel's Iran Strike Option: Is Netanyahu a "Bomber Boy"?What Jeffrey Goldberg has put out for us is an early treatment of what may be Barack Obama's "Cuban Missile Crisis" moment -- in which tensions are high, in which many in the room on all sides are engaged in extreme brinkmanship, and in which disaster looms for all parties.

                          Morning Posting.

  • Let Them Pinch Pennies!Michelle Obama has been acting more like a frivoulous queen than a concerned first lady while her country is suffering an economic downturn.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.American Center for Law and Justice Calls on State Department to Cancel Taxpayer-Funded Middle East Trip by Imam of Ground Zero Mosque.The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) on Tuesday called on the U.S. State Department to remove Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf from a taxpayer-funded trip to Muslim countries, citing his controversial views about the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2001.

  • 'Barak wanted to avenge border incident, attack Lebanon'.Al-Sharq al-Awsat newspaper reports Sarkozy, Clinton pressured Israel to withdraw its plan to launch large-scale military operation in response to death of Ltc. Dov Harari killed in border skirmish.

  • Michelle Obama: Spoiled Brat Extraordinaire.Now, let’s all jog our memories back to the Democratic primary. Does anyone remember when Michelle Obama said that, “For the first time in my adult life, I’m really proud of my country?”I’m sorry, but how bratty and ungrateful can one woman be?!Oh, and who could forget during the Democratic primary when she stated that she “would have to think about that” with regard to supporting Hillary Clinton if she became the nominee instead of her husband.

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.Trust the imams, not the rabbis.The imam of the Ground Zero mosque has been characterized as a 'moderate.' The Anti-Defamation League's Abraham Foxman came out against the mosque and has been branded as a 'bigot.' In light of the organized Jewish community's leadership's failure to back Foxman, the Jewish Week's Jonathan Mark explains why you can trust what you hear from the imams, but you cannot trust what you hear from many American rabbis.

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.Pro-Hamas truther Imam to represent US in Muslim countries.The imam who is behind the mosque, Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, is being sent by the Obama administration to represent the United States on a trip to Muslim countries around the Middle East. And in the video I'm about to show you, we learn a couple of other things about the imam. We learn that he doesn't consider Hamas - which has turned suicide bombing into a political tactic - a terror organization. And we learn that he believes that the US was behind the 9/11 attacks."They don't trust me cause my middle name is Hussein"Yeah whatevah!

  • Obama Administration Seeks to Overturn US Lebanon Aid Suspension.The Obama administration said Tuesday that it is trying to persuade key Democratic legislators to end a hold on U.S. military aid to Lebanon. Two House of Representatives committee heads are blocking delivery of $100 million in assistance, out of concern about possible Hezbollah influence in Lebanon's armed forces.On whose side is Obama really?

  • Ground Zero mosque spokesman to Gutfeld: Your gay bar won’t build dialogue because it doesn’t consider our sensibilities.He’s got a point.Construction projects that fail to consider local cultural sensitivities aren’t very conducive to dialogue, are they?I think it's high time someone cleans the Augean stables that the Obama administration has become!

  • Will we soon set watches to Mecca Mean Time? Giant £500million clock being built in Islamic holy city.For over a century, an observatory in a south-east London park has been used as the reference point to set every watch on the globe.But Greenwich Mean Time is facing a challenge to its claims as the starting point for each new day.A giant new clock being built in the Islamic holy city of Mecca hopes to usurp the role of Greenwich Observatory, and aims to have the world's 1.5 billion Muslims setting their watches by its time.Does Big Ben make a religious statement?Time is universal not religious!The clock will be set to 1400 years behind the rest of the world – very accurate.
  • Video:Gutfeld Tells Beck About Idea For Gay Bar Next to Ground Zero Mosque.The bar will feature 72 virgin drinks since Muslims don't drink alcohol. Working name for the bar is "Suspicious Packages". Greatest idea ever.It seems there is already a bar there "The Dakota Roadhouse".

  • Now that's what you call driftwood! 200ft-long cedar among dozens of tree trunks scattered across beach after storm.More than 200ft long and 13ft around the trunk, this is one piece of wood that nobody will be throwing along the beach for the dog to fetch.The giant western red cedar was one of dozens of trees washed up at La Push, a small community in Washington State on the U.S. west coast.

  • 9/11 museum going up in NYC offers raw experience.The Sept. 11 museum is taking shape 70 feet below ground, a cavernous space that provides an emotionally raw journey and ends at bedrock where huge surviving remnants and spacial voids reveal the scale of the devastation of what once was the World Trade Center.

  • The woman in the gauze mask.The facial burns Davinia Douglass suffered in the 7 July bombings healed fast. But her emotional scars ran deeper.The defining image of the 2005 rush-hour attacks is of a young woman in a burns mask, barefoot and bloodied.

  • Former Senator Ted Stevens killed in plane crash ex-NASA official survived .Former Senator, Ted Stevens, and former NASA administrator, Sean O’Keefe, and his son, Kevin, were enroute to a fishing lodge late on Monday evening, when the plane crashed, killing five people and leaving four people seriously injured.

  • Focus U.S.A. / Will Israel really attack Iran within a year?After interviewing dozens of Israeli, American and Arab officials, Atlantic Magazine correspondent concludes Israel may not even ask for American 'green light' to attack Iran nuclear sites.And while Rahm Emanuel, the White House chief of staff, reminded Goldberg that "the expression 'All options are on the table' means that all options are on the table," - the Israeli interviewees repeatedly questioned Obama's resolve to actually do it. Some even asked Goldberg if he thought the American president was actually an anti-Semite, forcing the reporter to explain that Obama is probably "the first Jewish President" – but not necessarily Likud's idea of a Jew.But the reply he got from one official was: "This is the problem. If Obama is a J Street Jew, we are in trouble."

  • HT:WeaselZippers.White House Declines to Defend Obama’s Call for Rangel to Resign.Did they just throw Dear Leader under the bus?Meanwhile, the White House backed away Tuesday from what seems to be Obama’s call for Rangel to resign from Congress.“If I can’t get my dignity back here, then fire your best shot in getting rid of me through expulsion,” said Rangel.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Another Carnival Game Owner Removes Its Odogma Figure; This Time In NJ.I don’t think it even looks like Obama. Now maybe if the game owner had the figure standing on the American flag, or pissing on the Constitution."You shall make no images of the anointed one?"

  • United Nations marks international day of the world’s indigenous peoples.On the occasion of International Day of the World’s Indigenous Peoples, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged the world to step up efforts to improve living conditions of the world’s indigenous communities and to protect them, saying they continued to suffer discrimination and poverty despite a United Nations declaration that aims to promote their rights.

  • Gibbs: People who are upset with Obama don't live in real America, didn't help get Obama elected.Really? That's the latest White House response to Obama voters who are sincerely concerned about the direction this White House is taking on so many issues. To smear everyone and suggest that they didn't lift a finger to get the President elected? Seriously?

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.Ehud Ahmed Barak bars IDF troops from eating, drinking or smoking at checkpoints during Ramadan.The security forces have been updated that ahead of the end of Ramadan, and as part of preparations for the Eid al-Fitr festivities, Palestinian children may be carrying weapon-shaped toys and firecrackers. Another one has "fallen" for Obama's Spell?Or is it a curse?For sure it must be something very contagious.And kids with "Toy guns"?Doesn't look like toy guns in their training videos in Summercamp?Just pure madness.

  • Greenland ice sheet faces 'tipping point in 10 years'Scientists warn that temperature rise of between 2C and 7C would cause ice to melt, resulting in 23ft rise in sea level.The entire ice mass of Greenland will disappear from the world map if temperatures rise by as little as 2C, with severe consequences for the rest of the world, a panel of scientists told Congress today.Greenland shed its largest chunk of ice in nearly half a century last week, and faces an even grimmer future.

  • Paterson Would Offer New Site for Mosque Away From Ground Zero.Gov. David A. Paterson said Tuesday that he would consider offering state-owned property to the developers of a $100 million Muslim center and mosque if they decided to build it farther from ground zero.


  • Feds funding Ground Zero imam's Mideast trip.Meanwhile, state regulators said the sale of an adjacent Con Ed building needed to complete the Ground Zero mosque -- as disclosed by The Post on Sunday -- might be subject to review after all, even as Mayor Bloomberg insisted the project has "nothing to do with Con Ed."Public Service Commission spokeswoman Anne Dalton said state law requires the agency to sign off on the "transfer or lease" of any property a utility owns within its franchise area.The question is whether Con Ed satisfied that requirement nearly four decades ago, when it granted a 99-year lease on the former substation site at 49-51 Park Place.

  • Mayor Bloomberg Channels French Traitor.If Mayor Michael Bloomberg is to New York – and by extension the United States – what French general Philippe Pétain was to his country in WWII, we have cause for great concern. France was in desperate need of a leader after the Nazi invasion and called its greatest WWI hero out of retirement to help in 1940.While Bloomberg was not the mayor of New York at the time, he did have a rather embarrassing encounter in late 2009 with a likely co-conspirator in that bombing, Siraj Wahhaj. Mayor Bloomberg met with Muslim leaders on November 11th at City Hall and attempted to deny that Wahhaj was among those in attendance until a reporter challenged him. Said Bloomberg when pressed, That one (Wahhaj). Yes. We have to talk to everybody. That’s what dialogue is all about. That’s how you prevent tragedies.

  • Obama vs. Obama - Afghanistan edition.In the following devastating video, Huffington Post Video Editor Ben Craw, combines clips of Senator Obama questioning Rice about Iraq in January 2007 with comments President Obama has made about his own Afghan exit strategy in a speech in March 2009, an interview with CBS's "60 Minutes" in March 2009, an address to the nation in December 2009, remarks to the troops in Afghanistan in March, an interview with ABC in April, and an appearance on ABC's "The View" in July:I can't decide which is more infuriating, that the biased media wing of the Democrat party gives Obama a pass on such outrageous inconsistency, or that Obama always tries to be on both sides of so many issues. Just how stupid does the JournolLst crowd think the American people are?

  • Islam, Islamists, and stopping the Mosque: Part 2.May they rest in peace?

  • Why the US keeps minting coins people hate and won't use.In hidden vaults across the country, the US government is building a stockpile of $1 coins. The hoard has topped $1.1bn - imagine a stack of coins reaching almost seven times higher than the International Space Station - and the piles have grown so large the US Federal Reserve is running out of storage space.Americans won't use the coins, preferring $1 notes. But the US keeps minting them anyway, and the Fed estimates it already has enough $1 coins to last the next 10 years.And at the current rate, the inventory will grow to $2bn (£1.3bn) by 2016, the Fed estimates.

  • Surely, Glenn Beck Likening Obama's Presidency To Evil Gorillas Enslaving Humanity Is Not About Race.When pudgy albino reminder of what happens when traumatic childhood meets troubled, emotionally unstable, born-again adulthood, Glenn Lee Beck, hits the airwaves, the result is usually an alternately comical and tragic mixture of hilarious nonsense tinged with saline tears, and culminating in the deranged rantings of a paranoid schizophrenic with a deep-seated hatred for black people. Errr, make that, the deranged rantings of a paranoid schizophrenic who will not just sit back and weep (faux tears) while America is overrun by a half-black president, who ironically enough, happens to have a deep-seated hatred for white people, particularly fat talking heads with limited education but unlimited sense of his own inflated ego and intellectual prowess.This time the rollicking good cheer and utter hilarity manifested itself in the form of a not-at-all racist rant from Fox News' favoritest on-air Aryan and resident White Power scholar Glenn Beck comparing America under the Obama administration to "the damn Planet of the Apes."

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Obama Regime: Taliban is Not a Terrorist Organization.What more do they need? The Taliban are Islamic supremacists, aided al-Qaeda during 9/11 plot, allowed Bin Laden to set-up shop and use Afghanistan as a base to wage global jihad, kills American troops on a near-daily basis, has foreign fighters in its ranks etc.“It is hard to imagine this agency can see fit to issue a report that doesn’t include the Taliban groups,” Fred Gedrich, a foreign policy analyst and former State Department employee, told The Daily Caller. “They have killed more Americans and conducted more terror attacks on innocent civilians during the past 12 months than any other terror group.“On who's side is Obama really?

  • Iran Accuses Exiled Lawyer In Stoning Case Of Financial Fraud.Tehran Prosecutor Abbas Jafari Dowlatabadi has said that a human rights lawyer who fled Iran last month, charging that officials were harassing him for his vigorous defense of a woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, is accused of "financial fraud."This is one way to try to get him back in Iran?"

  • Iranian Band Abjeez Says Supreme Leader's Dismissal Of Music 'Ridiculous'.The screws continue to tighten on musicians and artists in Iran as the country's religious authorities increase restrictions on public expression and dissent as part of a wider crackdown on opposition activity. Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, announced this month that "promoting and teaching" music is "not compatible with the highest values of the sacred regime of the Islamic Republic."

  • In pictures: Luntik, the amazing 4-eared cat.The brief Seventies craze for quadraphonic sound might have lasted a little longer of there were more cats like Luntik around.The three-month old kitten who lives in a garage in Vladivostok, Russia, has a 'spare' pair of vestigial ears just in front of his real ones.
  • Cartoon in Montreal Paper Deemed Anti-Semitic.A Hasidic Jew cab driver stands outside his vehicle to call out passengers. His black cab, dubbed “Taxi de David,” also has a sign advertising a website called www.pascherpascher.com. He says to bystanders, “Come in! May Yaveh be with you...”This was the cartoon that appeared in the July 2010 issue of the Montreal newspaper, La Metropole. The drawing’s headline states: “A taxi transformed into a ... synagogue?”

  • NASA Plans 'Deep Impact' Mission.Nasa could land probe on asteroid hurtling towards Earth.Nasa is considering plans to land a probe on an asteroid that is on a potential collision course for Earth.Asteroid 1999 RQ36, which has a one-in-1,000 chance of hitting the Earth before the year 2200, would cause an explosion equivalent to hundreds of nuclear bombs detonating at once.An analysis of its orbit has predicted that it is most likely to hit us on September 24, 2182 but scientists want to collect a sample of the rock to help forecast its trajectory more accurately.

  • HT:WeaselZippers.Obama Regime: Taliban is Not a Terrorist Organization.What more do they need?

  • Conservative humorist/provocateur Greg Gutfeld has announced that he intends to build a gay bar next door to the planned Islamic center on Manhattan's Park Place that's become known as the Ground Zero mosque.It seems there is already a bar there "The Dakota Roadhouse"Some of the reviews Speak for itself."Great bartenders, huge burgers, and cold beer!" HAMBURGER, CHEESEBURGER -W/ FRIES, RINGS, BACON -VEGGIEBURGER, TURKEYBURGER -W/ FRIES, RINGS, BACON - Lots of Bacon around!

  • House passes $600M border-security bill.The $600 million bill will fund more than 1,000 additional federal agents for the southern border, and allow the dispatching of unmanned aerial drones to help monitor border crossings.

  • For Obama, All Politics Is Local . . . Except When It’s Not.I noted a few days ago that the Obama administration claimed to be taking no position on the Ground Zero mosque, with Robert Gibbs explaining that the president would not want to meddle in local affairs.Now it emerges that the Obama State Department is not only footing the bill for Imam Feisal Rauf’s fling to the Persian Gulf region; it has also posted Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s speech in vigorous support of Rauf’s Ground Zero project on its website.

  • Latest Symptom of Global Warming: Oyster Herpes.New strain can kill 80 percent of an oyster bed in a week, experts say.Don't worry—oyster herpes isn't a new side effect of eating "the food of love."The incurable, deadly virus is, however, alarming fishing communities in Europe, where oyster herpes seems to be spreading—and could go on spreading as seas continue to warm, experts say.

  • A private plane carrying a former head of NASA and, possibly, former Sen. Ted Stevens crashed Monday night in a rugged stretch of Alaska. The crash left at least five people dead, and crews have arrived to help survivors."Local authorities are reporting that there are survivors and a rescue operation is under way," said Guy Hicks, a company spokesman "No other details are available at this time."

  • Russian nuclear fear as 557 wildfires rage dangerously close to top secret facilities.Russia has admitted to new fears over wildfires engulfing the capital of its nuclear research industry, the highly sensitive town of Sarov, so secret it remains closed to foreigners as in Soviet times.Two soldiers were killed on Tuesday fighting blazes dangerously close to atomic complexes, despite claims these were under control or even extinguished by officials in recent days.One, rifle battalion commander Vasily Tezetev, 22, 'died the death of a hero', stated the local emergency centre.Both perished while tackling the blazes in forests surrounding the town, 230 miles east of Moscow and known during the Cold War as Arzamas-16, which is still ringed by high fences and military checkpoints.

  • Hillary for Vice President?The movement is gaining traction.By way of contrast, Mr. Wilder says that Hillary Clinton has excelled in her role. "Clinton has been nothing but a team player who has earned good marks since being asked to serve as secretary of state." Having Mrs. Clinton join the 2012 ticket, he said, would revive the Democratic Party and reestablish the party's working-class voters who found her appealing during the 2012 primaries against Mr. Obama.

  • Airlines grounds overweight staff: paper.Turkish Airlines has grounded 28 flight attendants for being overweight and given them six months to slim down or face reassignment, a newspaper said on Saturday.Izzet Levi, head of a cabin attendants' association who was among those furloughed, told Haber Turk he must drop 10 kilos (22 pounds) to reach 96 kilos if he is to return to his post.Talk about a "lean and mean"management.

  • US officials: 5 believed dead in Alaska crash!A U.S. government official says former Sen. Ted Stevens is believed to have been aboard the airplane that has crashed in Alaska.



  • Ground Zero Mosque: Name will forever taint the building, religion and followers."The supposed goal of those building the center is to bring people together. Clearly this goal is not being achieved. So why continue? Furthermore, the "hellbent" idea of building this center gives some evidence that perhaps that is, in fact, not their goal after all."

  • Orthodox, Catholics, Muslims pray for rain as people died from smog in Moscow.The city's morgues are full, hospitals overcrowded, not enough gas-masks in pharmacies and the mortality rate has doubled. Demands for the resignation of the mayor of the capital. Campaigns of prayer and support for people affected by fires.Catholic and Orthodox Churches in Russia are now united in prayer for victims of fires that have brought the country to its knees and in the hope that rain will soon arrive. "We have been praying for rain for weeks and for families who have lost their homes in the disaster this summer," Fr Kirll Gorbunov head of Communications for the Diocese of the Mother of God in Moscow.And while the Kremlin is trying to disclose as little information as possible about the consequences of the extraordinary heat wave and forest fires in Russia, they have begun to face losses in economic terms which could reach 1% of 2010GDP, 15 billion dollars.

  • HT:IsraelMatzav.Court rejects attempt to stop destruction of fake graves.On Monday, an Israeli court rejected an attempt by the Muslim Waqf to stop the fake graves' destruction. The Jerusalem Magistrates Court prevented an attempt by the Waqf Muslim authority on Monday to expand the Muslim graveyard next to Independence Park (Gan Ha'atzmaut), not far from the Old City of Jerusalem.Anyone want to bet how long it will take before this comes up at the UN 'Human Rights Council?'

  • Rancher claims Mexican cartels takeover Texas ranch -Police blotter confirms story is not a hoax.After 16 days of denials by Laredo law enforcement and local officials regarding a Mexican drug cartel takeover of a Laredo area ranch, a Texas police blotter proves the alleged incident did in fact happen and that multiple agencies responded to the scene of a seized U.S. ranch.

  • Obama’s hidden past is beginning to burst at the seams--contradictions abound.Another Obama puzzle: 3rd grade in 2 countries?Photo at Hawaii school doesn't line up with State Department info, registration.Laughably Obama’s published biography is slowly beginning to unravel. The birther’s who are bashed as crazy by the White House are beginning to gain some headway toward their journey to the truth. Nothing published about this President in his own books or the mainstream press ever holds water.

  • The Mosque, the Masks, and the Mayor.By modern standards, Cordoba was not all that tolerant even at its harmonious zenith, as Dr. Andrew Bostom's impeccably-researched compendium, The Legacy of Jihad, makes clear. Ibn Abdun (d. 1134) called Jews and Christians "confederates of Satan's party," while Ibn Hazm of Cordoba (d. 1064) wrote that Allah has established the infidels' ownership of their property "merely to provide booty for Muslims." In other words -- and this may come as hard news for certain "symbologists" -- there is more evidence for Muslim intolerance than there is for murder by associates of Opus Dei. Dan Brown says "albino assassin," I say "reconquista."Perhaps they -- we -- can help Cordoba House backers extricate themselves from the mother of all faux pas.

  • The Ground Zero Mosque &Our Government's Mishandling Of "Islamic Radicals".Having said all of that, it is surprising that Feisal Abdul-Rauf, the man driving the Cordoba Initiative, is nominally a Sufi Muslim. Sufism is a mystical sect of Islam and largely benign. But Rauf certainly shows attitudes unusual for a Sufi, including his embrace of Hamas, his belief that America was to blame for 9-11, and a long association with Salafists and the Muslim Brotherhood. This is all the more surprising since Sufis are hated by ideologically pure Salafists and, indeed, were recently the subject of brutal attacks at the hands of Salafists in Pakistan. Author Steven Schwartz, himself a Sufi Muslim, noted in a recent article in the NY Post that none of these traits displayed by Rauf are in keeping with Sufism.So who or what is he?Perhaps a Jihadist?

  • HT:AmericanThinker.Desperate Economic Action Ahead?The economic condition of the country continues to decline toward its rendezvous with an, as yet, unknowable catastrophe. Speculation regarding this outcome is natural because self-interest, if not self-preservation, is at stake. Here is but one possibility. It is not a prediction, but a look at a series of not improbable events that could develop. Any similar government desperation would change our economic world overnight.It is mid-year 2012. The country has officially been in recession since the end of 2010. Many believe that it never recovered from what began in 2008. The word depression is now almost commonplace.President Joe Biden (in office for six months after former President Obama resigned "to spend more time with his family") issues a short, terse message.

  • How Does Stoning Work in Iran?From the size of the stones to who gets first throw."Let the Mullah he who is without sin cast the first stone!"

  • Real Blog War: CAIR Goes After Robert Spencer.It reminds me a great deal of the old debate about legalizing the Communist Party back in the fifties. Should the CP be legal when communism calls for the violent overthrow of the U.S. government? Sharia, similarly, calls for a world united under the caliphate, with those of us who do not accept Islam subject to dhimmi law or worse, depending on our status. Essentially, it’s the end of Western civilization. Is this grounds for outlawing sharia? It’s an interesting and complex free speech/civil rights question, but only if you know what sharia is and have some idea what it intends. Most — including, I am almost certain, NY Mayor Michael Bloomberg — do not.Frankly, I was pleased to hear the FBI was welcoming the likes of Spencer, especially since our Department of Justice (as has been reported at PJM and elsewhere) has gone out of its way to ignore radical Islam as a motivation for terrorism even when it couldn’t be more obviously so. From Ft. Hood to Times Square, it hasn’t been just the thousand pound gorilla in the room, it has been every gorilla in every room from here to Beijing and back.

  • Obama won't pull trigger on 'August surprise,' here's why.The bottom line? Panic over this stalled economy may be setting in.Thus the news lat week that Obama is thinking of forgiving mortgages of whatever amount each is underwater. As Ed explains, "This explains James Pethokoukis’ warning about the rumored write-off at Fannie for underwater mortgages. That will either drop a bomb on Wall Street or on the national debt, which has already hit the crisis stage. Kudlow hears the same rumors (although it’s not clear whether he heard them from Pethokoukis’ column), and more."My opinion he might just do it to get their votes and stay in power.

The arrival-departure cards given to arriving airline passengers carry a list of items prohibited under Maldivian laws - including "materials contrary to Islam."While the Maldivians do not have a choice to convert out of Islam or to become openly atheist, foreigners in the country can practice their religion only privately.In previous years several Christian expats have either been arrested for attending worship in private homes or denied visas for several months or years on suspicion of being connected with mission agencies.According to "liberal estimates," the number of Maldivian Christians or seekers "cannot be more than 15," said one source."I wish I could attend church, but I am too scared to look for one," said a European expat worker.
