Through the epochs of time, Cats have been both revered and persecuted for their perceived supernatural nature. The ancient Egyptians were the ones who first domesticated cats, starting around 2000 B.C. The animal achieved a sacred status in the Land of the Nile. The earliest feline cat goddess recorded was called Mafdet and is described in the Pyramid Texts as killing a serpent with her claws. But the most famous cat goddesses in the world, first revered by the ancient Egyptians were Bastet (also known as Bast, Pasch, Ubasti) and the lion-headed Sekhmet.
There has always been an aura around cats that gives them a numinous quality. Many myths and superstitions involving cats goes back to this newspaper story's main character wonderous talent. Obviously to have a cat go up and "identify" someone who's going to die can be a threatening experience. That is why the cat was placed in history as a witch's familiar. Both were mysterious and tapped into a side of our consciousness which is unknown and feared.
Here's a link to a history of Egyptian cats. It is pretty interesting.

Jeez! Why didn't I see that? That's what is wrong with our culture, our society and our Nation. It's not illegal immigration, the expanding size of government, Islamic terrorists trying to enter our country and detonate nuclear weapons - oh no! It's that our 5 year olds aren't being exposed to enough sex.
Just more vapidity from our Empty-Suit-of-Illinois.
Some Liberal 20-something has posted this R-Kelly ripoff homage to Obama on YouTube. Funny that she never mentions his enormous ears, nor that his voting record is scandalous. She doesn't even mention that his Dumbo sized ears
fail to listen to Illinois voters. It just shows you that it doesn't matter the substance of a politician. Many female voters will simply ignore a candidate's record, history and background and focus on the thin veneer of superficiality when making their decisions in the voting booth.

Check out immigration's human cost. If you're not a law enforcement officer, you may be surprised to see just how much crime, violence and mayhem is committed by illegal aliens.
Many don't know that John Lee Malvo was an illegal alien who should have been deported but wasn't. As a result of our own government's ineptness, we had to endure weeks of the "D.C. Sniper".
Excerpt from Wikipedia's discussion of the Malvo / Mohammed trial. This was the "Real Plan" that they intended to carry out in the D.C. / Maryland area. Notice what they planned to do to local law enforcement.
|In John Allen Muhammad's May 2006 trial in Montgomery County, MD, Lee Boyd Malvo took the stand and confessed to a more detailed version of the pair's plans. Malvo, after extensive psychological counseling, admitted that he was lying at the earlier Virginia trial where he had admitted to being the triggerman for every shooting. Malvo claimed that he had said this in order to protect John Allen Muhammad from the potential death penalty, because it was more difficult to achieve the death penalty for a minor. Malvo said that he wanted to do what little he could for the families of the victims by letting the full story be told. In his two days of testimony, Malvo outlined many very detailed aspects of all the shootings.|
Part of his testimony concerned John Allen Muhammad's complete multiphase plan. His plan consisted of three phases in the Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD metro areas. Phase one consisted of meticulously planning, mapping, and practicing their locations around the DC area. This way after each shooting they would be able to quickly leave the area on a predetermined path, and move on to the next location. John Allen Muhammad's goal in Phase One was to kill 6 people a day for 30 days. Malvo went on to describe how Phase One did not go as planned due to heavy traffic and the lack of a clear shot and/or getaway at different locations.
Phase Two was meant to be moved up to Baltimore, MD. Malvo described how this phase was close to being implemented, but never was carried out. Phase Two was intended to begin by killing a pregnant woman by shooting her in the stomach. The next step would have been to shoot and kill a Baltimore police officer. Then, at the officer's funeral, they were to create several improvised explosive devices complete with shrapnel. These explosives were intended to kill a large number of police, since many police would attend another officer's funeral.
The last phase was to take place very shortly after, if not during, Phase Two. The third phase was to extort several million dollars from the United States government. This money would be used to finance a larger plan. The plan was to travel north into Canada. Along the way they would stop in YMCAs and orphanages recruiting other impressionable young boys with no parents or guidance. John Allen Muhammad thought he could act as their father figure as he did with Lee Boyd Malvo. Once he recruited a large number of young boys and made his way up to Canada, he would begin their training. Malvo described how John Allen Muhammad intended to train all these boys with weapons and stealth, as he had been taught. Finally, after their training was complete, John Allen Muhammad would send them out across the United States to carry out mass shootings in many different cities, just as he had done in Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD. These attacks would be coordinated, and were intended to send the country into chaos.
The underlying cause for the terrorist plan was not directly addressed at the trial. However, a series of trial exhibits indicated that Malvo and Muhammed were motivated by an affinity for Islamic Jihad.
Just more Muslims bred within The Religion of Peace.

Today on Laura Ingraham'sshow, she took a call from "Manny" who claimed to be a conservative Republican, as well as a member of the Art community. He said he played trumpet in the Minnesota Symphony Orchestra.
I did some digging on the internet and I think I found Manny. A Manny Laureano plays trumpet for the Minnesota Symphony. His website page is here. He's their first chair trumpeter. I noticed that their site has a music library page. Check out a few of the songs.
God bless him. We certainly need more artists who are patriotic, and who relish in being American. I hope he doesn't catch any hell from his colleagues for coming out of the Conservative Closet. That can be a death knell in the world of high Art.
One other thing they're good at is providing succor and comfort to the Muslim jihadis worldwide. Our congressmen and senators are busy sending Al-qaeda cells the reassurances of "just hang in there - we'll be out of your hair by September, December at the latest!"
It's is a telling trait that these pathetic and shallow politicians (that was redundant) are only interested in putting on a dog and pony show - complete with television footage of toothpaste and cots - all in an attempt to show YOU that they're actually able to get something done.
There were only two senators who had anything insightful and constructive to say: Jim Bunning (R-Ky) and John Thune (R-SD)
Here's a part of Bunning's speech:
|Mr. President, I rise tonight to play my small part in this pointless political play put on by the Senate Majority Leader.|
It is an insult to the brave men and women in our Armed Forces and to the American taxpayers that we are here tonight for no other reason than for a publicity stunt.
Instead of following the script written by "Move On" like my colleagues on the other side of the aisle, I want to be honest and frank with the American people.
I hear Democrats every day talking about public opinion polls on Iraq and on the Presidents approval rating.
To some extent they are right. The American people are not satisfied with the war in Iraq. And the President is at an all-time low in his approval rating.
But I rarely hear my friends on the other side of the aisle talk about public opinion of Congress. And its obvious why. President Bush has a higher approval rating than the current Democrat led-Congress.
I have never been accused of being a political strategist. But I have been around this town long enough -- over twenty years -- to know that the American people resent their leaders for so often taking the politically expedient path instead of doing what they think is right.
The American people see right through this charade going on tonight. It is just more political theater. Phony images of cots, toothpaste, and sleepy politicians meant to convince people that what goes on here at three in the morning may actually do some good.
But it doesnt do any good. In fact, it does a lot of bad. Because this debate is more about political show and placating the "Move On" folks than it is about talking about the real issues at hand.
It is appalling that we are using a bill that provides vital funding for our nations military as a political smokescreen for Democrats to gain points in the polls.
The safety and security of the brave men and women in our Armed Forces is not a game to me. Our troops should never be used as a basis to stage a cheap publicity stunt.
If the Senate truly supported our troops, we would be here debating the nuts and bolts of the Department of Defense Authorization bill. Instead we find ourselves back debating whether to cut and run from Iraq as we have done countless times before tonight.
Democrats would like for you to believe that Republicans will not vote on the Reed/Levin amendment. Give me a break.
The embarrassment of this whole thing is that YOU are paying for this circus - you the hardworking taxpayers are paying for these clowns to stand up and whine about giving in to our enemies.
Cowardice, thy name starts with a Capital D.

I just found Zombie's antithesis.
The site is called CopWatch LA and, if you want to laugh at some pathetic losers, the website is described here. (I won't link to it because I don't link directly to urban terrorist organizations.)
The website's Mission is: "CWLA is a program dedicated to the struggle that will end police terrorism through collecting information on and observing police activity, by offering support to those caught in the criminal injustice system, fighting for change without a reformist consciousness, and working side-by-side with oppressed communities* to create revolutionary alternatives to policing, prisons, and all systems of domination, oppression and exploitation."
The person who runs it is one Sherman Austin - eventhough he was prohibited by a Federal Court injunction back in '02 from contributing to any website because he was found to be promoting violent anarchy and revolution. Austin comes across as some disaffected youth who has, maybe, had a negative experience with police and who holds a profound grudge with the LAPD. But if you dig a little you'll find that this guy is just a professional shit-stirrer, anarchist and marxist revolucionario.
A discussion board about Austin's CopWatch site has one "rah-rah" supporter saying,"If 'WE THE PEOPLE' don't police the POLICE no one will! Otherwise, the gun and badge is just a licence to lie, steal, assault and, yes, EVEN MURDER. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK SHERMAN & CO. !!"
(Notice where the cross-hairs are centered!)
The yahoo interview with this slug glosses over some salient points on Austin's own criminal history. In USA vs. Sherman Austin you can see that he wasn't convicted simply of fomenting violence on his website, an FBI search warrant revealed that he'd constructed 60 Molotov cocktails and was planning on using them at an World Ecomonic Forum in New York.
From the court transcript:
The defendant operates a web site, or used to operate a web site, which advocated direct action, violent action, to stop different events; most specifically, the World Economic Forum which just happened in New York. He also advocated direct action, violent action, to stop the 2002 Olympics held now in Salt Lake City -- I believe the opening ceremonies are about to begin -- by all means necessary, is what the web site said.
In fact, his web site, before it was dismantled by the FBI, indicated he wanted to burn the Olympics. And I ask the Court's indulgence. I'm going to have to use strong language which was inside the web site, but this is the language of the defendant. He indicated he wanted to burn the Olympics, and he wanted to fuck the corporate playground.
Your Honor, the web site indicates -- the defendant indicated to others that were going to visit this web site that it was essential, essential reading, for anyone who was associated with the groups that advocate or utilize sabotage, theft, arson, and more militant tactics.
The web site encouraged demonstrators to assault police, even encouraged them to use different-tactics, how to lure police so they could be more vulnerable to rioters and to more militant tactics; to use weapons of mass destruction; to use bombs, to explode bombs; to injure police and to blow up their cars, just like in the movies, the web site cautioned.
The web site taught users and visitors how to make different types of bombs, as I mentioned before, including Molotov cocktails and fuel fertilizer bombs. Therefore, the FBI was quite alarmed, obviously, when bags of fertilizer in the defendant's car, the silver Toyota I mentioned earlier, were found in the back of his car, along with fuel canisters. Again, these are the key ingredients to the fuel fertilizer bombs the defendant instructed others how to make.
On a related note, the government released its Terrorism Report today and warns: Non-Muslim terrorist groups probably will attack here in the next several years, although on a smaller scale. The judgments don't name any specific groups, but the FBI often warns of violent environmental groups, such as Earth Liberation Front, and others. CopWatch should be included in this list.
So give me a break. People like this aren't just "disaffected youths" - they are dangerous and most definitely should be monitored 24/7. The next time Austin's backdoor is being kicked in by some "economically deprived teenagers", I'm sure he won't be calling some of his anarchist loser buddies - he'll dial 911.

Mr. Ellison, formerly of the Nation of Islam, that organization of Peace, Love and Benevolence, now claims to be just a "regular" Muslim. He said publicly that Bush is like Hitler in that Hitler bombed the Reichstag as a phony provocation to accelerate his political agendas.
To make such a connection shows how disconnected from reality this guy is.
What an idiot.

The NYTimes has coverage here.
|When Officer Timoshenko, 23, and his partner, Officer Herman Yan, 26, pulled the trio over in their stolen black 2003 BMW sport-utility vehicle early Monday in Prospect-Lefferts Gardens, Brooklyn, they had no idea that each of the men had amassed a long criminal record, or that they were heavily armed. |
As the officers approached, Mr. Ellis and Mr. Bostic opened fire, the police have said. Officer Timoshenko, shot in the face and neck, remained in critical condition on life support yesterday; Officer Yan, hit in the arm and in his bulletproof vest, was released from a hospital on Tuesday.
The BMW, abandoned after the shooting, had the fingerprints of all three men inside, an official said, and Mr. Woodss fingerprints were lifted from a box of food found lying just outside the drivers door.
Three guns the Llama, a 9-millimeter Hi-Point pistol and a Tec-9 semiautomatic were found in an alley near the vehicle. The Tec-9, which court papers said was being loaded during the shooting, was not fired at the officers. All three guns were illegal, and each has been traced.
I wish a speedy recover to both Officers. Please include them in your thoughts and prayers. Here is a story and interview with the family of Officer Timoshenko.
You already know what I would like to see happen to the 3 Animal Savages. There isn't a Tree high enough!

I'd have a hard time believing this to be true if it wasn't for the fact that the US government allegedly offered Abu Omar $2 million and citizenship for himself and two kids.
(CIA surveillance photo of Abu when he was strolling the boulevards of Milan in search of a good cappucino)
Personally I don't have a problem with this story. I think radical Muslims have been getting a "free-pass" by law enforcement out of respect for the Islamic religion and many (way too many) hide behind the Quran and shield themselves from prosecution with it.
So the lesson here (for any Imams that might be reading this) is scale back the incitements to jihad, keep the "We Must Butcher the Infidels for Allah" messages to a bare minimum and don't funnel money to Islamic Training Camps.
If you do those small things, chances are nobody is going to kidnap you and tie battery cables to your genitals.
The sad and pathetic part to this story is that this radical cleric is using the media and the courts to claim that he is a victim. The Italian ministry has issued 20 arrest warrants for CIA operatives who were known to work in Italy.
This world really is upside down. These radicalized Muslims are no better than the Nazi punks who were bullying and murdering their way through Europe in the late '30s and '40s. Think of it this way ... it's like living in London in 1942 and opening a storefront where you espouse Nazi ideology to your enthralled congregation. And the government, instead of shutting down your shop and arresting you, goes after the officers who picked you up and interrogated you. Better yet - the government gives you millions of dollars and says,"Hey, come live in our country!"
I wonder how you say "zeig heil" in Arabic? Oh yeah it's "Allahu akbar!" Check out this story about the Red Mosque hostage stand off in which the children being held want to be murdered so that they can be "martyred". One poor father used a ruse to get his two daughters out of the place and now they're hurt and angry with him because they wanted to die for the cause of Allah. While our kids are being raised on Sesame Street, the kids in the middle east are being taught in a Death Cult.
On another related note, the NYTimes posted this story . Apparently back in 2005 we had Al-zawahiri in our sites and could have killed him and a bunch of other Al-qaeda terrorists but did we? Uh no. We didn't want to "create a rift" with Pakistan. Unbelievable.
Whatever happened to the backbone of the United States of America? When will be get our fortitude back?

Farfour, a Mickey Mouse look-alike on a Hamas TV show for palestinian children, was martyred on the show recently. An Israeli "terrorist" beat him to death during the show and he joined Allah for the cause of Palestine.
It is said that they can't be fired because it wouldn't be "politically correct" to do so. Authorities claim there isn't enough evidence to give them the boot even though one of the listed was running around showing Islamic beheading videos and pamphlets. Some of these people were trained by Al Qaeda in Pakistan.
If you've read Londonistan you'd know that Britain has a huge problem now due to their institutionalized Political Correctness and Cultural Diversity. Over the last 20 years their Liberal immigration policy let in a slue of radical Imams and jihadis. Most of them were given asylum and provided with welfare benefits, automatically. All they had to do was say that they were being "persecuted" in their country of origin and, Presto! - full British citizenship. Now the British people are shaking their heads in disbelief that "british boys" are responsible for terrorist attacks on British soil. That's because these "british boys" are Brits in name only - their hearts and souls belong to Allah.
So Scotland Yard will just let these people work in law enforcement out of a misguided sense of magnanimity.
Another nail in the coffin of Western Civilization by the insanity known as Cultural Diversity.
|Yesterday's action in the 6th Circuit means that the principal remaining legal challenge to the NSA surveillance program is a group of cases pending before a U.S. District Court judge and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in California. |
The primary issue before that appeals court, differing somewhat from that in the Michigan case, is whether the administration may claim that a privilege covering state secrets precludes the litigation.
The eavesdropping program -- first revealed by news accounts in late 2005 and the subject of intense political wrangling since then -- is one aspect of a broad assertion of presidential power by Bush in the past six years to justify policies meant to deter terrorism here and abroad.
It's a shallow victory though .... it's a shame that it even had to come to this. Organizations like the ACLU shouldn't be involved in influencing National Security policy.
But the base has had enough. Bush fatigue has set in. They're tired of the out of control spending, the wishy-washy platitudes from this White House, the refusal of this President to take a strong stand against the Islamic terrorists, and the White Houses' mode de jour of "going dark" (ie. sticking its collective head in the sand and ignoring everyone).
|No, conservatives are unhappy because the president allied himself with Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.) over an immigration deal that leaned too far toward amnesty for illegal immigrants. |
They're unhappy because Bush has shown little interest in fiscal responsibility and limited government. And they're unhappy, above all, because he hasn't won the war in Iraq.
All of this has left Republicans saying, at least among themselves, something blunt and devastating: It's over.
Bush has enraged his base because he refuses to listen to what we're saying. He has proven himself to be an elitist little stooge who has the verbal dexterity of a 6th grader. Add to that an attendant penchant for enacting policies with little or no justification, and you have a formula for anger and frustration.
Our president should be OVERLY communicative. What we had with Clinton is someone who was a superlative politician but not someone who should have been in charge of the country. Clinton's "character defects" stood in the way of him being an effective leader and, in our foreign policy, we're still paying the price for his mis-deeds and shoddy oversight.
GW has shown that he just doesn't care about anyone except his own close circle of cronies. From treating Saudi Arabia and the House of Saud with kid gloves to his trying to ram Harriet Miers onto the supreme court, everyone has had enough.
In the immortal words of Carl Spackler, "Au revoir gopher."

|Maury County deputies and federal agents are looking for a man who is accused of raping a 15-year-old girl only hours after being released from jail. <u>Juan Villa</u>, 24, has been in the Maury County Jail 11 times since 2001 on charges of assault, public intoxication, driving without a license and contempt of court.|
He was released from jail on $1,000 bail on Friday at about 9:45 p.m. and is suspected of raping the 15-year-old shortly after midnight. During the investigation, a 13-year-old girl also told deputies she was raped by Villa, Sheriff Enoch George said.
Villa is suspected of being in the country illegally and George said the department had contacted Immigration and Customs Enforcement about him before he was released from jail but the federal agents said they would deal with him later.
George Bush should be ashamed of himself for allowing this to go on within our country. Enough is enough! Take the handcuffs off our ICE agents and Border Patrol agents! Let them do the job they were hired for.
No swiping for Me! A sergeant will have to physically reach into my pocket, pull out my ID and make me swipe.
When will the FOP issue a grievance on this? Send an email to Mark Donahue, Bill Dougherty, and Frank DiMaria to let them know that they should be grieving this procedure.
The only ones it helps are the city's accountants, the only ones it hurts are you.
If Al Gore, a pseudo-science buffoon with a penchant for making an ass of himself, was my dad: I might be driving around self-medicating too! Between "inventing the internet", self-destructing at the cusp of obtaining the White House, and creating hysteria around a phony "global warming" boondoggle - Al Gore just didn't have enough time to spend with his children.
Part of me can't blame the poor guy for wanting to numb-out with some recreational drugs. Having Al and Tipper as parents would drive anyone to drink.
The Forbes article is here. From the piece:
|With more Fs on their report cards than a pair of high school dropouts, Doheny Beach in Orange County, and Imperial Beach in San Diego County, tied for worst-water quality in California, according to the annual "Heal the Bay Survey." |
And add to the mix that Orange County had the highest number of beach closings or advisory days in the country from 2000 to 2003, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. San Diego County ranked third. San Juan Creek, with its urban runoff from "people washing their cars, mowing their lawns, hosing down their driveways and not picking up after their dogs," runs directly into the ocean at Doheny, according to Rick Wilson of the Surfrider Foundation. Together with a harbor that blocks water circulation, the result is stagnant conditions on the beach.
Imperial Beach in San Diego County made the list this year because of sewer spills in Tijuana, Mexico. Ocean currents bring the pollution north to the southernmost U.S. beach.
Incidents: These waters, and their bacteria, can literally make you sick. John Moody was surfing at Doheny Beach when he contracted a serious staph infection, prompting him to cofound Miocean, a nonprofit made up of environmental businessmen in Orange County.
Chicago wasn't ranked in the beaches article.
I've traveled and conducted business personally, in Mexico. The corruption is rampant throughout the country. Documents mean nothing - for the right price you can get anything you want to say whatever you want and someone will make it look official.
The problem with Mexico is that the corruption and malaise is entrenched in the National psyche - it's a cultural thing.
When I'd be negotiating a contract in grains with a Mexican commodities house, I knew our USDA and FGIS weights and grades were down to the 1/100th part per million and that they were accurate. The documentation coming from the Mexican government was never to be trusted because we'd been burned by accepting grain shipments based on their measurements. Our contracts were actually rewritten to say that we'd only accept USDA grades and bills of lading on any and all shipments from Mexico. Many folks just don't understand how bad it is dealing with the Mexican bureaucracy and just how corrupt and disingenuous the entire system is.
It seems alot more than just sewage and waste gets into el norte from Mexico.

As Ben Franklin said,“Anyone who trades liberty for security deserves neither liberty nor security.”
Unfortunately Ole Benny wasn't confronted with an enemy who wraps themselves in the sackcloth and beard of a retrograde religion, won't wear a uniform, and is funded by our billionaire Wahabbi "friends" in oil-soaked Saudi Arabia.
So on the anniversary of the birth of this beloved Nation, I honor those who have fought and continue to fight for our freedom, our liberty and the American Way of Life.
As Bill Bennett says,"You judge a nation by The Gate Test. If you remove all the gates to the country, do people run in or run out?" If you took away every impedence to come to the United States, the stampede of immigration would be out of control.
It is a true testament to the power and allure of this Great Democracy that millions throughout the world would be honored and humbled to be called an American.

When Chris Wallace asked him if the Administration would start Immigration Enforcement since their immigration legislation was stalled in the senate, Chertoff said that,"We've made arrests, unfortunately. Some of the unfortunates can be seen: crying children, families arrested and it's unfortunate."
Michelle points out the phony raids that occured to "soften us up" prior to the Shamnesty showdown in the congress. And here he is again displaying his unfettered contempt for those of you who want to maintain our national sovoreignty and our borders.
These exchanges show what we're up against with this administration, elites with a "better than you" mentality who want to make the United States of America nothing more than a free trade zone - a la Eurabia. The president and his staff have no intention of enforcing our borders unless we continue to scream at them to get that fence built.
It's now official that George W. Bush is deaf, dumb AND blind.

One of these days I'm going to put together a wine symposium on the blog and share my gleanings of "fruit of the vine" but for now suffice it to say I'm a wannabe wine-snob.
I digress, I was at work the other day and I was paying attention to the terrorist attacks over in the UK over the weekend. Having piqued my curiosity by thinking "What else have the wonderful Muslims been doing worldwide in their attempts at jihad and overthrowing "the great satan"? Such thoughts led me to searching for the industry expert on Radical Islam - Sir Robert Spencer.
Mr. Spencer has written extensively on Islamic extremism and has some coined some memorable titles: The Truth About Muhammed, The Pollitcally-Incorrect Guide to Islam, and The Myth of Islamic tolerance.
I tried to access Robert Spencer's web-site Jihad Watch but was roundly chided by the "Smart Filter" on our network. The department, in their infinite wisdom, has deigned that Mr. Spencer's website contains "Hate Speech."
Hmmmm. Interesting way of looking at things. Here is a best-selling author who points out the hate, intolerance, violence and 7th Century throwbacks within Islam who want to murder all infidels and Mr. Spencer's website is considered "hateful" by our beloved Computer Geeks.
Well I'm not shocked - I've seen this department work and can understand how one desk jockey with an agenda can screw up something for all of us.
Suddenly UK Muslims are afraid of a "back-lash" in the wake of the 2 foiled terrorist bombings:
British Muslims Worry About Backlash
Here again, as always, after Muslims are caught plotting mass murder of innocent civilians in the West, the mainstream media focuses on Muslim fears of a backlash that hardly ever materializes. And here again, as always, the Muslims say nothing -- nothing at all -- about being spurred by the latest uncovered jihad plot to start working harder to identify jihad terrorists within their ranks and turn them over to authorities.
From AP (thanks to Twostellas):
(AP) Name-calling, anxiety, fear and anger rippled through Britain on Sunday after three failed bomb attacks in London and Glasgow. Government and religious leaders appealed for calm, but some Muslims braced for a backlash while some non-Muslims looked for someone to blame.
The attacks sparked scattered incidents of racist abuse on the streets of London, with young white men targeting Muslim taxi drivers and others of South Asian appearance. Glasgow lawmaker Mohammad Sarwar said some Muslims in Scotland had been threatened or targeted with abusive graffiti.
Oh, horror of horrors. Thousands of non-Muslims were targeted and threatened with mass murder. What does Sarwar have to say about what he plans to do to keep that from happening again?
Then do more to prevent it, and voila! Insults and fears of backlash will evansce!
Damn right! Sometimes it makes sense to be intolerant: especially when one specific group is responsible for 99% of terrorist acts then pointing that out is not Intolerance.
And how "tolerant" are the Muslims themselves? Not tolerant in the least. Last fall, on the heels of global Muslim rage against Pope Benedict XVI – which led to riots and three killings of Christians – a teacher in France went into hiding after receiving death threats. His offense? He published a column in the French newspaper Le Figaro in which he characterized the Muslim prophet Muhammad as “a merciless war chief, plunderer, slaughterer of Jews and a polygamist.”
The teacher said that one of the threats he received stated: “You will never feel secure on this earth. One billion, three hundred thousand Muslims are ready to kill you.” As the death threats poured in, everyone abandoned him. The teacher himself noted that France’s education ministry “has not even contacted me, has not deigned to get in touch to see if I need any help.” The senior editor of Le Figaro, Pierre Rousselin, declared on Al-Jazeera that he had been mistaken to publish Redeker’s article, and hastened to assure the Islamic world that the article did not reflect the opinion of the paper.
Read more on this story here.
So here we are again, in a position of watching the world, in an apoplectic spasm of guilt and political correctness, bending over backwards to placate the 7th Century Throwbacks who haven't given Western Civilzation anything for 1,000 years except murder, totalitarianism and darkness.
I should have a t-shirt made that says "Mohammed: The original Thug"
