This Blog Is Moving

Greetings. After this weekend, this Take Our Country Back Blog will be moving to the new web site. Too many conservatives are getting zapped by the intolerant dweebs of the Obama Goons and seeing that this editing platform is a free site, Blogger can do pretty much what it feels like doing. Hence, I now have a paid site and will be migrating the last 1400+ posts shortly.

So, one day, you just may click this page somewhere and it will show up as "private". It has been fun but the intolerant Czarbie Goon Squads are brain dead idiots. They can come play at the new site which I OWN outright.

A History Lesson In American Patriotism

~Snooper~




Hat Tip to Hot Air...in the movie "Charlie Wilson's War", it is said that there are many witty slogans and slinky quotables. This is one of them in regards to defeating the USSR in Afghanistan.
"We won because there was no partisanship or damaging leaks."
This is due primarily to the American "Can-Do" spirit which is all but eviscerated from our political idiots in this country. It is also due to the unwavering Patriotism that was still very much alive but has been nearly buried in recent decades. Thank God there is a resurgence of American Patriotism that is now permeating our society and squashing the anti-Americanist groups such as the leadership of the DNC and their moppets such as Code Pink and similar dweebish moonbats.

I read the piece at the Opinion Journal and whereas the above quote is indeed indicative of the times, then, I found another that is all too near and dear to me.
[...] Mr. Avrakotos picked a team of agency outcasts to funnel weapons to the Afghans while Mr. Wilson made sure they had the means to do so. [...]
You can read "team of agency outcasts" as "PQC". Add "LW" to the "PQC" and you have LWPQC. The gradual force was later on renamed and, for those in the know, would be recognized as p20g.

In memory of my friend Bronco, I will miss you, my friend. Sail on. Sleep well.

News Flash From Michael Yon To OBL

~Snooper~

From Michael Yon:
I have directly observed how more and more Iraqis have grown to hate al Qaeda as much as Americans do. Al Qaeda has lost all credibility there, both from a religious standpoint as well as strategically. Even Western media seems to be gradually awakening to the realization that al Qaeda press releases on the topic of Iraq are about as well-informed as the post-invasion rantings of Baghdad Bob. (Everytime Osama bin Laden talks of crushing the infidel, I can't help but think of Mohammed Saeed al-Sahaf pointing vigorously skyward and practically spitting at the reporters: "We are crushing the American army as we speak!") [...] read the rest...
To top that all off, after OBL admitted defeat in Iraq, now, after Benazir Bhutto has been murdered by suspected Al-Qaeda operatives (maybe), OBL will be releasing a plea for more help in Iraq. Truly, OBL is an American Leftinistra Democrat political leader. I wonder which one it is. Does he wake up in the morning and wet his finger and hold it up to the wind also? Maybe we should ship him a weather vane to assist the murderous whore of Islam figure things out.

(AGI/AFP) - Washington, 28th December - Fifty-six minutes of analysis of the situation in Iraq. Osama bin Laden is making his voice heard once more, and again, his words call on guerrilla forces in Mesopotamia. According to US 'Site' institute, the head of al Qaeda is addressing the extremist Iraqi group 'Islamic State' with a message entitled 'Methods for Quashing Conspiracies' whose broadcasting is imminent according to announcements gathered on 'Jihadist forums'. It is not clear whether it is a video or an audio. The last message sent by the 'Sheik of terror' goes back to the end of November when Arab station al Jazira broadcast an audio in which bin Laden incited Europeans to break their alliance with the United States and to leave Afghanistan. (AGI)
Wow. Sounds like a desperate plea for "bail me outta this quagmire" to me.

Treason In Vermont...UPDATED

~Snooper~

BDS runs deep in Vermont in these trying times. It seems a bearded fellow from Brattleboro wants President Bush and Vice-President Cheney arrested should they ever step foot in the backwoods township.

It seems that the targets of the BDS have violated the United States Constitution in some way yet this "declaration" is what has violated the United States Constitution. Go figure. Another moonbat Double Standard.
A group in Brattleboro is petitioning to put an item on a town meeting agenda in March that would make Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney subject to arrest and indictment if they visit the southeastern Vermont community.

"This petition is as radical as the Declaration of Independence, and it draws on that tradition in claiming a universal jurisdiction when governments fail to do what they're supposed to do," said Kurt Daims, 54, a retired machinist leading the drive.

As president, Bush has visited every state except Vermont.

The town meeting, an annual exercise in which residents gather to vote on everything from fire department budgets to municipal policy, requires about 1,000 signatures to place a binding item on the agenda.

The measure asks: "Shall the Selectboard instruct the Town Attorney to draft indictments against President Bush and Vice President Cheney for crimes against our Constitution, and publish said indictment for consideration by other municipalities?" [...]
How about we round these poor and pathetic wastes of human flesh and ship them to Iran? It never ceases to amaze me how these types of anti-Americanists never list the alleged crimes against the Constitution. Do they even know of which they yammer?

From The Jawa Report
As the Surge continues to work as planned desperate lunatic fringe lefties get more and more idiotic. [...]

[...] Without the will and wherewithal (and luck, or, perhaps, a beneficent Providence) to enforce the Declaration of Independence, the Founding Fathers would have gone down in history as traitors to the Crown.

Kurt's little hissy fit is simply treason, without any noble purpose.

Stupid syrup-sucking stump jumper.
Spot on.

Breaking! Osama Bin Laden Murdered!

~Snooper~

HA! GOTCHA!!


My Pet Jawa has a post up in regards to the forthcoming recent video/audio that isn't so recent video of the Head Goat Licker and Fornicator of Hogs in the dark caves OBL.

Apparently Bhutto knew people -- very bad people -- were out to kill her, but what is this deal with "Omar Shiekh" who she claims "murdered Osama bin Laden"? Either she knew something super-sikret, or she, like so many in the developing world, believed in elaborate conspiracies based on rumor and innuendo.

And, while we're adding the Bhutto angle, notice that she names bin Laden's son as one of the people who might want to kill her (among four possibilities). Again, it's just Bhutto's speculation, but it does look like al Qaeda was behind it. Specifically: Baitullah Mehsud.

UPDATE: Did she really mean to say "Daniel Pearl" instead of "Osama bin Laden"? Maybe. Allah seems to think that's a better explanation. Curt, too. It's a truthers wet dream.

Another interesting is that the info she got on her would-be-assassins comes from: Musharraf.

Anyway, give Jawa a visit to view the video. Be forewarned:

Apologies in advance for the message at the end, the person posting it at Youtube is a conspiracy nut.

Go figure. In our post here, OBL is desperate in Iraq. Jawa goes on and says that Al Jazeera repeated what OBL said but didn't really mean to say that he lost in Iraq...and Afghanistan. Yep. It is confirming more and more each day that he is a closet US Democrat.

GWB May Veto The Recent "War Funding" Bill

~Snooper~

This reeks of more underhanded Leftinistra BS.

Macsmind has a good read on this here.

The NY Slimes piece is here.

The NY Post piece is here.

Apparently, there is a provision in the "National Defense Authorization Act that would permit plaintiffs' lawyers to freeze Iraqi funds and expose Iraq to "massive liability in lawsuits concerning the misdeeds of the Saddam Hussein regime." At least one pending lawsuit reportedly seeks $1 billion or more."

President Bush can use his Pocket Veto by not signing the bill by midnight off 12/31/07. If this takes place, the bill dies. But, wait. the "opposition" is having seconds long meetings with one Senator every 2 or 3 days just so they can say that they haven't adjourned yet.

Just another example of BS politics and all the more reason to march on DC, fore them ALL and replace them with homeless vets. They'd get more done. I have to wonder if the Leftinistra planned this ahead of time by placing crap like this in the bill to start with knowing GWB and Iraq would object and rightfully so.

No wonder the charlatans waited until the last micro-second to pass it.
President Bush yesterday headed toward a constitutional confrontation with Congress over his effort to reject a sweeping defense bill.

Bush announced he would scuttle the bill with a "pocket veto" - essentially letting the bill die without his signature 10 days after he received it, or the end of Dec. 31.

But that can happen only when Congress is not in session; otherwise, the bill becomes law without a formal veto in 10 days.

And the Senate maintains it is in session because it has held brief - sometimes only seconds long - meetings every two or three days with only one senator present.

The White House's view is that Congress has adjourned.

It was unclear how the executive and legislative branches would determine whether, in fact, Bush's lack of signature would amount to vetoing the bill or turning it into law.

"My withholding of approval from the bill precludes its becoming law," Bush said in a statement of disapproval sent to Congress.

The president said he was sending the bill and his outline of objections to the House clerk "to avoid unnecessary litigation about the non-enactment of the bill that results from my withholding approval, and to leave no doubt that the bill is being vetoed."
More political footballs with our Troops and National Security.

Good job morons.

Damn them all to hell.

I guess when the smoke clears we will find out the real deal.

Please stand by...this is only a test.

Leftinistra Doom and Gloom at HuffPo and Think Digress

~Snooper~

General Petraeus, the man unanimously confirmed by the Us Senate and then summarily labeled as incompetent by Mr Incompetence himself ReidCo, has addressed The Troops at year's end.
Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, Marines, Coast Guardsmen, and Civilians of Multi-National Force-Iraq:

As 2007 draws to a close, you should look back with pride on what you, your fellow troopers, our Iraqi partners, and Iraqi Coalition civilians have achieved in 2007. A year ago, Iraq was racked by horrific violence and on the brink of civil war. Now, levels of violence and civilians and military casualties are significantly reduced and hope has been rekindled in many Iraqi communities. To be sure, the progress is reversible and there is much more to be done. Nonetheless, the hard-fought accomplishments of 2007 have been substantial, and I want to thank each of you for the contributions you made to them. [...] (read the rest at MNF-1 Iraq)
Amazingly, the Leftinistra have "captured" and are promoting the hopes that the successes in Iraq will fail.


They totally skim over the fact that even though there has been a slight bump up in suicide attacks, the attacks are at an all-time low even still. This clearly shows the desperation to distract from the fact that the anti-Americanist low-life scum within our own borders have been on the wrong side of this issue from the very onset.

The reactions from the Libtards and their fellow moppet Leftinistra also reveals their bitter hatred of GWB and Freedom as a whole.

More Foolish, Emotional and Ignorant anti-Americanists Prattle

~Snooper~

This entire entry by DHinMI at the KOSmonoff blog had this to say about the murder of Prime Minister Bhutto:

[...] The Bush administration, the Republican candidates for President and wingers of all varieties will be invoking the specter of "TERRA!" and arguing that this killing is proof that we need a bellicose foreign policy under the command of another bellicose Republican. Of course, that's wrong. Pakistan's government has been under the control of the military for much of its history, and often those dictatorships had the sanction of the US. Cold War politics figured heavily in to its history, and the current crisis has its roots in the US/Pakistani creation of the Mujahadeen forces that fought in Afghanistan in the 1980's against the Soviets. While it certainly has huge consequences for the US, this assassination is another chapter in the internal struggles of Pakistan.

It was the creation of those forces for the Afghan war that eventually led to the rise of the Taliban, the creation of al Qaeda, and the radicalization of the mostly Pashtun peoples in the "tribal areas" of Pakistan, where Bin Laden is widely believed to have found a safe haven, most likely with the tacit acceptance of Pakistan's intelligence service, which is believed to be sympathetic to, and probably actively supporting the religious extremists who seek to overturn Pakistan's government. These are the proximate roots of the current struggles in Pakistan. [...]
And there you have it. It is all America's fault and primarily the fault of President Bush. The BDS runs deep and wide.

And then, there is always this extreme anti-Americanist, Medea Benjamin:
[...] CODEPINK agrees that Musharraf is the biggest obstacle facing a democratic Pakistan today. He is not capable of either fighting extremists or building a society that respects the rule of law. My colleague Tighe Barry and I recently had a taste of his dictatorial ways when we were kidnapped and carjacked at gunpoint and then deported for supporting the pro-democracy movement. [...]
Idiot. I guess the foolish imp and financier of the enemy forces against the United States just doesn't know squat.

To add to the Double Standard(s) of the Collective Leftinistra, we now have a moonbat over at Saloon for Loons and Spitoons decrying that Pakistan has always been a bigger threat to the United States than Iraq was. I was under the impression that "Iraq was never a threat" and now, it was a threat but not as much as Pakistan was/is. First of all, during the beginning of the GWOT, Pakistan said that they would take care of AQ and the Taliban in Pakistan and said the US could not enter Pakistan to conduct military actions. These folks really don't pay that much attention, do they? Either that or they have a very short memory and shorter attention span. And, the whole incident with the Bhutto assassination is, once again, President Bush's fault. Then, again, the Leftinistra Moonbat Juan Cole is the author of the entry.
Bush's failed policies in Pakistan, a nuclear power that al-Qaida still uses to plot against the West, threatens U.S. security more than Iraq ever did. [...]
Poor thing. The BDS is dripping.
[...] The renewed instability in Pakistan came as a grim reminder that the Bush administration has been pursuing a two-front war, neither of which has been going well. [..]
Someone needs to raid the fellow's hang-outs and dispense with the 'shrooms, forthwith!

Naturally, CBS, Time, Hillary and Obama, Socialist Joe, Loony RP, some others, moonbats here, Pelosi and Reid, Russ Feingold (twit), Byron Williams, Gareth Porter, Kennedy and Specter, Snakes and Snails, Anti-Americanist Blog, WaPo, Mulvaney, Idiot Politicians, Dingbats, SmokeFilledBrain, FizzleBangDumb, CNN, those committing social vapor, TPM, BBC, Guardian, ICGA, unhinged moonbats' comments, TalkLeft Fruit Loops, and a host of others went on the usual political jockey ride on their horses to Utopia (no place) and the usual Blame America First and Bash Bush tirades, instead on focusing on the "who did it" deal.

Dean Barnett says that it is more prudent for most to keep their mouths shut.

Not enough? Go here:
A massive collection of Leftist blog posts are here. And, I hesitate to say this but, I sort of...for the most part...semi-agree with Lionel Beehner. However, in the genre of Juan Cole, Bob Cesca is still a lost soul with the BDS oozing from every orifice.

Mad Man In A Jihad: Merry Christmas, Kuffar

The President of Iran sent Christmas greetings to Pope Benedict and published the same on his blog. The English text appearing on his blog is essentially unreadable gibberish, probably a poor machine translation. The text below was obtained by running that text through Babel's translator. Links to the text:

Amadinejad's message is quoted below, followed by my dissection of obvious problematic parts.


In the Name of Almighty God , the Most Merciful , the Most Compassionate


Merry Christmas to everyone !

My sincere congratulations to everyone for the Glorious and Auspicious Birthday of Divine Prophet - confirmed and authenticated by Gabriel , the angel of Divine revelation - the Obedient Of Almighty God ,

Jesus Christ , the Messiah ( peace upon Him )

He was messenger of peace , devotion and love based upon monotheism and justice . He was raised in His Mother's hand Virgin Mary ( peace upon her ) that Almighty God stood her as impeccable and exalted her above the Women of the world . The Mother and the Son that in the Divine Sight are reputable and prestigious . And they are positioned by God The All Wise - at sublime level .

There 's no doubt , after God the Peerless Creator , the Beneficent , the Merciful created the human beings , did not forsake them on their own . By sending and assigning the emissaries prophets and messengers - along with the righteous individuals , and on top of that , by providing and utilizing the mankind With the gifts of intellect and human nature , they are guided in the right path in order to achieve the complete perfection . The human generations one after another were not created to live in anguish , intimidation , skirmish , aggression , oppression , and misery . And without enjoying amity and fraternity atmosphere - replete of love and justice depart this life and leave it for the next generations .

The philosophy of human creation is : reaching the pinnacle of bliss , construction of immaculate life , efflorescence of all potentialities and talents , implementation of justice and Devotion across the world amongst all human beings . This is one of the definite Divine promises that when the world is filled with oppression and enmity by the tyrants and oppressors , it will become full of Justice by the reappearance of the promised Savior . All the Divine Prophets clearly anounced this fact .

Unfortunately during the history , some egoistic and tyrant individuals existed that stood against the convocations and the sermons of the Divine Prophets . And these tyrants and oppressors were the causation of all the adversities and the originator of all wars and animosities .

Today 's status quo of the world is obvious of everyone . In Palestine , Iraq , Afghanistan , Africa , and South America and even in Europe and North America , due to the interests of despotic dominant rulers ' Parties and clans and also for up their pockets , the dignity , benevolence , peace and tranquility of the human beings been taken to abattoir and Slaughtered . And then, lie and deception are positioned for honesty and truth .

Many peoples are exasperated from the present situation of the world . And they come to the conclusion that the existed procedure , method and technique can not provide tranquilly and peace to the mankind .

Frankly , if Jesus Christ the Messiah ( peace upon Him ) was present today , how would He react ? And whom would He stand with and against ?

If Jesus Christ ( peace upon Him ) was present today , he would order encounter against those who would propagate corruption , obscenity and perversion , And try to nullify and exterminate the merits and the rights of women and diminish their position position that virgin Mary ( peace upon Her ) is their role model and sample .

If Jesus Christ ( peace upon Him ) was present today , He would order contention against those who try to discharge the world from morality , Spirituality , intellectuality , justice , and peace . And accordingly , the true followers of the Divine Prophets would follow their steps in regard to strengthening the morality , intellectuality , spirituality , peace and justice in The world .

Although last year was accompanied with many injustices , aggressions , and many violation of rights , but the calls and outcries of begging and imploring from God and Demanding justice were louder . Day by day , nations would realize the power of faith and godliness . They would go for peace and justice more than before and give positive answer to the Divine prophets ' sermons and would tell to their Creator Almighty God ' Here am I ! '� Praise the Lord !

The same way that Jesus Christ ( peace upon Him ) invited the people to goodness and perfection , and also avoid them from evil , atrocity and Aggression , His true followers the same . With the belief in God and the Hereafter , they are frontiers in righteousness .

Certainly , the implementation of the Divine Prophets ' commands and directions would reform and improve our lives in this world and would safeguard afterlife conjunctionally .

We believe that the beloved Jesus Christ the Messiah ( peace upon Him and His Mother ) would also reappear for the fulfillment of the promises of All the Divine prophets . And together the invited of the nations would bring all the beauties and goodness for humanity of the world . And we are getting close to that date .

While commemorating the birthday of the Prophet of amity , love and devotion Jesus Christ , the Messiah ( peace upon Him and His beloved Mother ) And congratulating the new year , I beg God the Merciful , the All-Wise year of bliss , and health and year replete Of , abundance , success , and affection for everyone , specially the Christian of Iran and the world .

From Islam Tomorrow, an American Muslim organization:
"Congratulating the kuffar with Christmas or other religious holidays is unanimously prohibited. Ibnul-Qayyim reported this in his book, 'Ahkamu Ahlith-Thummah'.
  • Merry Christmas to everyone !
According to the fatwa above cited, that's kufr! No, I ain't joking, Moe gave a direct order!
Sahih Muslim Book 026, Number 5389:

Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Do not greet the Jews and the Christians before they greet you and when you meet any one of them on the roads force him to go to the narrowest part of it.

  • This is one of the definite Divine promises that when the world is filled with oppression and enmity by the tyrants and oppressors , it will become full of Justice by the reappearance of the promised Savior . All the Divine Prophets clearly anounced this fact .
Lets take a look at Moe's prophecy concerning Christ's second coming.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 55, Number 657:

Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "By Him in Whose Hands my soul is, surely (Jesus,) the son of Mary will soon descend amongst you and will judge mankind justly (as a Just Ruler); he will break the Cross and kill the pigs and there will be no Jizya (i.e. taxation taken from non Muslims). Money will be in abundance so that nobody will accept it, and a single prostration to Allah (in prayer) will be better than the whole world and whatever is in it." Abu Huraira added "If you wish, you can recite (this verse of the Holy Book): -- 'And there is none Of the people of the Scriptures (Jews and Christians) But must believe in him (i.e Jesus as an Apostle of Allah and a human being) Before his death. And on the Day of Judgment He will be a witness Against them." (4.159) (See Fateh Al Bari, Page 302 Vol 7)

Abu Dawud Book 37, Number 4310:
Narrated AbuHurayrah:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: There is no prophet between me and him, that is, Jesus (peace_be_upon_him). He will descent (to the earth). When you see him, recognise him: a man of medium height, reddish fair, wearing two light yellow garments, looking as if drops were falling down from his head though it will not be wet. He will fight the people for the cause of Islam. He will break the cross, kill swine, and abolish jizyah. Allah will perish all religions except Islam. He will destroy the Antichrist and will live on the earth for forty years and then he will die. The Muslims will pray over him.


Justice is Islam, established by fighting, which results in death & dispossession of all who oppose it. And Jesus Christ is to return to participate in it, yeah, right.

  • And these tyrants and oppressors were the causation of all the adversities and the originator of all wars and animosities .
For example:
  1. 8:39
  2. 8:60
  3. 8:65
  4. 9:29
Lets take a closer look at the cause of wars:
The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 - By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad


O-9.8: The Objectives of Jihad
The caliph (o-25) makes war upon Jews, Christians, and Zoroastrians (N: provided he has first invited them to enter Islam in faith and practice, and if they will not, then invited them to enter the social order of Islam by paying the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya, def: o-11.4) -which is the significance of their paying it, not the money itself-while remaining in their ancestral religions) (O: and the war continues) until they become Muslim or else pay the non-Muslim poll tax (O: in accordance with the word of Allah Most High,
"Fight those who do not believe in Allah and the Last Day and who forbid not what Allah and His messenger have forbidden-who do not practice the religion of truth, being of those who have been given the Book-until they pay the poll tax out of hand and are humbled" (Koran 9.29),
the time and place for which is before the final descent of Jesus (upon whom be peace). After his final coming, nothing but Islam will be accepted from them, for taking the poll tax is only effective until Jesus' descent (upon him and our Prophet be peace), which is the divinely revealed law of Muhammad. The coming of Jesus does not entail a separate divinely revealed law, for he will rule by the law of Muhammad. As for the Prophet's saying (Allah bless him and give him peace),
"I am the last, there will be no prophet after me,"
this does not contradict the final coming of Jesus (upon whom be peace), since he will not rule according to the Evangel, but as a follower of our Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace) ).


The Reliance of the Traveller. Version 1.06 - By Ahmad Ibn Naqib Al-Misri
BOOK O: JUSTICE >> Chapter O-9.0: Jihad


O-9.9
The caliph fights all other peoples until they become Muslim (O: because they are not a people with a Book, nor honored as such, and are not permitted to settle with paying the poll tax (jizya) ) (n: though according to the Hanafi school, peoples of all other religions, even idol worshippers, are permitted to live under the protection of the Islamic state if they either become Muslim or agree to pay the poll tax, the sole exceptions to which are apostates from Islam and idol worshippers who are Arabs, neither of whom has any choice but becoming Muslim (al-Hidaya sharh Bidaya al-mubtadi' (y-21), 6.48-49) ).


  • Today 's status quo of the world is obvious of everyone . In Palestine , Iraq , Afghanistan , Africa , and South America and even in Europe and North America , due to the interests of despotic dominant rulers ' Parties and clans and also for up their pockets , the dignity , benevolence , peace and tranquility of the human beings been taken to abattoir and Slaughtered . And then, lie and deception are positioned for honesty and truth .
Ahmadinejad is practicing projection: accusing us of what Islam is doing including the occupation & genocidal aggression against Israel and the genocidal aggression by suicide bombers in Iraq.

  • Many peoples are exasperated from the present situation of the world . And they come to the conclusion that the existed procedure , method and technique can not provide tranquilly and peace to the mankind .
Blessed right we are pissed off! And negotiations, good will gestures, U.N. sanctions, appeasement, limited war & containment can not end Islam's genocidal campaign of imperial conquest. There will be peace when there is no more Islam, not before!

  • If Jesus Christ ( peace upon Him ) was present today , he would order encounter against those who would propagate corruption , obscenity and perversion , And try to nullify and exterminate the merits and the rights of women and diminish their position position that virgin Mary ( peace upon Her ) is their role model and sample .
Exactly who would Christ lead war against? Who nullifies the merits and rights of women?
2:223. Your wives are a tilth for you, so go to your tilth (have sexual relations with your wives in any manner as long as it is in the vagina and not in the anus), when or how you will, and send (good deeds, or ask Allâh to bestow upon you pious offspring) before you for your ownselves. And fear Allâh, and know that you are to meet Him (in the Hereafter), and give good tidings to the believers (O Muhammad ).
4:11. Allâh commands you as regards your children's (inheritance); to the male, a portion equal to that of two females; if (there are) only daughters, two or more, their share is two thirds of the inheritance; if only one, her share is half. [...]
2:282[...]And get two witnesses out of your own men. And if there are not two men (available), then a man and two women, such as you agree for witnesses, so that if one of them (two women) errs, the other can remind her. [...]

Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 6, Number 301:

Narrated Abu Said Al-Khudri:

Once Allah's Apostle went out to the Musalla (to offer the prayer) o 'Id-al-Adha or Al-Fitr prayer. Then he passed by the women and said, "O women! Give alms, as I have seen that the majority of the dwellers of Hell-fire were you (women)." They asked, "Why is it so, O Allah's Apostle ?" He replied, "You curse frequently and are ungrateful to your husbands. I have not seen anyone more deficient in intelligence and religion than you. A cautious sensible man could be led astray by some of you." The women asked, "O Allah's Apostle! What is deficient in our intelligence and religion?" He said, "Is not the evidence of two women equal to the witness of one man?" They replied in the affirmative. He said, "This is the deficiency in her intelligence. Isn't it true that a woman can neither pray nor fast during her menses?" The women replied in the affirmative. He said, "This is the deficiency in her religion."

  • If Jesus Christ ( peace upon Him ) was present today , He would order contention against those who try to discharge the world from morality , Spirituality , intellectuality , justice , and peace . And accordingly , the true followers of the Divine Prophets would follow their steps in regard to strengthening the morality , intellectuality , spirituality , peace and justice in The world .
Who is doing that? Who is burning books; won't allow the Holy scriptures to enter their domain? Who sentences a gang rape victim to 200 lashes? Who demands the death of anyone who converts to Christianity? Who demands total world conquest? Who is fomenting war & terror in Asia, Africa & Europe?

  • The same way that Jesus Christ ( peace upon Him ) invited the people to goodness and perfection , and also avoid them from evil , atrocity and Aggression , His true followers the same . With the belief in God and the Hereafter , they are frontiers in righteousness .
And what did Allah command? War, terror & genocide!!!

The Terrorists' Tet

~Snooper~

As usual for Austin Bay, he has penned an excellent piece art Townhall.
Sometime within the next six months or so, al Qaeda or Saddamist terrorists will attempt a Tet offensive.

No, Middle Eastern mass murderers don't celebrate the Vietnamese festival of Tet, but trust that America's enemies everywhere do celebrate and systematically seek to emulate the strategic political effects North Vietnam's 1968 attack obtained.

This spring marks the 40th anniversary of Hanoi's offensive (yes, 40 years, two generations). It will also mark the umpteenth time American enemies have attempted to win in the psychological and political clash of an American election what they cannot win on the battlefield. [...] (read the rest)
He is indeed spot on.

Rest easy, Jimmy. I've got your back...this time.

The current political crisis in Lebanon, which began following the August 2006 Israel-Hizbullah war, is now coming to a head. Two of the country's biggest camps - the March 14 Forces, which constitute the majority in the Lebanese parliament, and the Lebanese opposition headed by Hizbullah - have failed to reach agreement over who will be the country's next president and over the makeup of the next government. [...]
Coupled with this crisis in Lebanon, we have people that think like the following and the idgits in the American Congress turn a blind eye in the name of political correctness, multiculturalism and identity politics.
Jamal Al-Din: "Our problem today - not only in Iraq, but in all Arab and Islamic countries - is the duality of the shari'a and the law. This duality is lethal. Our countries do not fully abide by the shari'a of Allah, nor do they follow a man-made law, like in France and other countries - including Turkey. There is nothing wrong with a country that bases itself exclusively on shari'a law, with no regard for the civil law. We believe the Koran to be the book sent by Allah - a complete book, with no additions and no omissions. Indeed, we believe that the Koran and Islam are the solution. Why, then, do we mix elements of the French and other laws in our shari'a law? Let the brothers who demand the establishment of a religious state adhere exclusively to shari'a law. Let them, for example, collect the jizya poll tax from their Christian citizens. Let them annihilate the Yazidis because they do not belong to the People of the Book. Let them raise doubts about the status of the Sabaeans in Iraq, because it is unclear whether they belong to the People of the Book or not."
Can it be related any clearer than this? Remember the Al-Qaeda attack a short time ago? The one that was called the 911 of Algiers? The one where the cowards of Islamic Jihad attacked the United Nations? It turns out that the Terrorist News Network has been exposed and called out:
The Algerian press made a rare show of unanimity in angrily denouncing the Al-Jazeera poll. The director-general of Algerian national television, Hamraoui Habib Chawki, addressed the issue during primetime, calling the poll "a grave slip that has made this station [Al-Jazeera] into an official spokesman for Al-Qaeda, terrorism, and crime."(3) The director-general of the national press service APS, Nacer Mehal, made similar remarks in Jeddah during a meeting with the Saudi Minister of Information.(4) In addition, the National Liberation Front (FLN) released a statement saying that the poll was "an implicit show of support for terrorist organizations."(5)

The director of Al-Jazeera's website, Ahmad Al-Sheikh, told the Algerian daily El-Shorouq El-Yawmi that the poll had been posted without his knowledge, called it a grave error, and said that it had been removed from the website. He also accused Al-Qaeda members and other interested parties of having thrown the poll results, saying that no one supported "barbaric acts" like the Algiers bombings.(6)
UH OH!! Looks like due to the corner market on cigars that Bill Clinton owns has caused the AQ Mouth Piece to have to wait for their cigar delivery...no cigars for them. With all of that going on and OBL openly admitting that they have lost the War In Iraq, much to Reid's disappointment, now we have the Terrorist Union competing with when the Global Caliphate is going to be established. It seems as though OBL wants to redeploy to Pakistan...go figure; we have been telling people this for well over three years that I know about...but Hamas has other ideas.
[...] As a religious-social movement confined to the West Bank and Gaza, Hamas has to date focused primarily on implementing a domestic socio-religious program. However, Hamas' victory in the 2005 municipal elections and 2006 parliamentary elections, and its subsequent takeover of Gaza, have raised questions regarding the future orientation of the movement's political activities. The issue most frequently debated is whether Hamas will continue to pursue its locally oriented agenda, or, taking advantage of its political momentum, will extend its influence beyond the boundaries of the West Bank and Gaza by becoming active in the arena of global jihad.

This paper assesses the possibility that Hamas will establish operative ties with global jihad movements, especially with Salafi movements such as Al-Qaeda, and join them in their global enterprises. Based on a consideration of its ideology, its roots in the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood movement, and the policies it has adopted since the Gaza takeover, the paper concludes that Hamas' local orientation is grounded in its ideology, and that the movement is therefore unlikely to engage in global jihad and to take part in initiatives aimed at restoring the global Islamic caliphate, which was dismantled de facto in 1918 and officially abolished by Turkish leader Kamal Ataturk in 1924. [...]
It seems as though OBL is more insignificant these days and Hamas is feeling their oats. I wonder how that is going to play out. These poor fools don't even see what is going on, do they? OBL trying to unite all and every Jihadi coward troll and fruit loop and they just aren't paying attention...typical divide and conquer ploy. It always works especially among the backward. With that, we have Sudan whining about the usual and typical Big Bad Satan that doesn't go around murdering people for not complying with Christian Doctrine.
[...] "When Alberto Fernandez was appointed U.S. Charge d'Affaires in Sudan, I expressed my deep sorrow that our country would be subjected to the torment of this arrogant man. I had seen him many times on Al-Jazeera and on other [TV] channels representing and defending America's foreign policy in Iraq, [the cradle of] civilization, [land of the great Caliph] Haroun Al-Rasheed.(3) The American forces have killed a million [Iraqis] and exiled millions more, and have driven Iraq and its civilization decades into the past, in terms of education and medical services and electricity and water infrastructures. So when [Fernandez], a speaker of Arabic, arrived [in Sudan], I knew that we were [facing] a new age of violence, tyranny and moral decay. [...]
Gee. I just have to wonder who it is exactly that possesses the Moral Higher Ground here. Listening to this fool, he just admitted that the American Moonbat Squads are, once again, with no surprise, wrong about the "education, medical services, electrical and water infrastructures". Imagine that. The poor slog just admitted that vast improvements have been made in this regard and he would rather the people NOT have these amenities. Now we know where these same Moonbats get their "1M Iraqi dead" figure. That myth has been debunked many times over.

Just for argument's sake, let's say that there are that many. If so, then, the following murderous Jihadi coward troll said the following back in the beginning of December:
Following are excerpts from a speech by Muhammad Taher Al-Farouq, leader of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan [...]

[...] "Allah willing, we will reach America. The men of this nation will reach America. The goal of this campaign is not only Kabul, Kandahar, or Baghdad. The eyes of the nation of Muhammad are set on Washington, London, Moscow, Paris, Delhi, Beijing, and other countries. This is our goal and, Allah willing, we will get there." [...]
I wonder how many dead would take place in the quest of such an unholy graille. That sounds like an open declaration of war to me.

Remember these things posted above as we head into the 2008 American Elections Duck Soup Quagmire and laughing stock of the world.

Global Jihad...Reality Or Myth

~Snooper~

So many misguided individuals in the ever shrinking world have an intellectual pitfall when it comes to understanding the Jihad Menace the world faces in these modern times. Some say the Jihad Menace is a reaction to the policies of the United States.

However, the policies of the United States doesn't explain the rising Jihad in countries like Thailand, India, Russian Provinces and colonies and various other nations not necessarily friendly to the United States. To a degree, they are correct but for the wrong reasons. (For a snap-shot view of terrorist activities across the globe we call Earth, check out the Global Incident Map. Most of the "incidents" involve Al Qaeda and associated groups.)

In August of 1996, Osama Bin Laden issued a declaration of war against the United States and few, if any, paid them serious attention.
Fast and light forces must be used and must operate in absolute secrecy. All effort must be directed at this enemy; kill it, fight it, destroy it, break it down, plot against it, ambush it, God the Almighty willing, until it is gone.

The ruling to kill the Americans and their allies - civilians and military - is an individual duty for every Muslim who can do it in any country in which it is possible to do it...

In February of 1998, the following Fatwa was issued against the United States and Western Allies:
Text of Fatwa Urging Jihad Against Americans

Published in Al-Quds al-'Arabi on Febuary 23, 1998

Statement signed by Sheikh Usamah Bin-Muhammad Bin-Ladin; Ayman al-Zawahiri, leader of the Jihad Group in Egypt; Abu-Yasir Rifa'i Ahmad Taha, a leader of the Islamic Group; Sheikh Mir Hamzah, secretary of the Jamiat-ul-Ulema-e-Pakistan; and Fazlul Rahman, leader of the Jihad Movement in Bangladesh

Praise be to God, who revealed the Book, controls the clouds, defeats factionalism, and says in His Book "But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem (of war)"; and peace be upon our Prophet, Muhammad Bin-'Abdallah, who said "I have been sent with the sword between my hands to ensure that no one but God is worshipped, God who put my livelihood under the shadow of my spear and who inflicts humiliation and scorn on those who disobey my orders." The Arabian Peninsula has never--since God made it flat, created its desert, and encircled it with seas--been stormed by any forces like the crusader armies now spreading in it like locusts, consuming its riches and destroying its plantations. All this is happening at a time when nations are attacking Muslims like people fighting over a plate of food. In the light of the grave situation and the lack of support, we and you are obliged to discuss current events, and we should all agree on how to settle the matter...(read the rest)

If there is religious fanaticisms, the above fits the mold. For further details, one can visit AIJAC for the tip of the iceberg learning curve. The review is dated October 2001. We have learned much more since then but this review has data to begin an earnest study. Some of us began our studies of Islamic Jihad in 1974.

Studying Islam and the ruthless tenets therein, the ever importance of the 12th Imam is a belief or concept worthy of notice and study. For those not familiar with the 12th Imam, the Islamic Messiah, in a nutshell, this Imam will be revealed in the spring equinox of Mecca and then Medina. This person is expected to "conquer all of Arabia, Syria, Iraq, destroy Israel and then set up a 'global government' based in Iraq."

Based in Iraq. The United States stands in the way. We don't need to be worrying about Global Warming or Global Orgasms. We need to be worried about or at least keeping a watchful out out on Global Jihad/Islam. At this point Jihad and Islam are one in the same, unfortunate as that may sound.

Others studying this are many and are considered as non-PC and that is a dangerous mind-set...similar to the mind-set of pre-1940. Hitler could have been stopped had the do-gooders been placed in check.
After [the Twelfth Imam's] uprising from Mecca, all of Arabia will submit to him and then other parts of the world as he marches upon Iraq and establishes his seat of global government in the city of Kufa. Then the Imam will send 10,000 of his forces to the east and west to uproot the oppressors. At this time, God will facilitate things for him and lands will come under his control one after the other. ... He will appear as a handsome young man, clad in neat clothes and exuding the fragrance of paradise. His face will glow with love and kindness for the human beings. ... He has a radiant forehead, black piercing eyes and a broad chest. He very much resembles his ancestor Prophet Mohammad. Heavenly light and justice accompany him. He will overcome enemies and oppressors with the help of God, and as per the promise of the Almighty the Mahdi will eradicate all corruption and injustice from the face of the earth and establish the global government of peace, justice and equity.

The Myth of Global Jihad is no Myth...it is real. The Caliphate once ruled from the Plains of Iberia to Indonesia.

180,000 +/- Muslims in Germany...6% of the Muslim population there, support violence in the name of Jihad.
In speeches in Saudi Arabia during his Hajj pilgrimage, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad stated that the goal of Islam was to establish a global government. He said that Iran was opposed to the American hegemony in the world,...
This isn't going away no matter the political yammering and bluster. The United States could go into isolationism on Christmas Day and the Global Jihad will grow exponentially. The United States is all there is that stands in the way.

Former Palestinian foreign minister Mahmoud Al-Zahar said that Jerusalem will be the capital of the state of the Islamic Caliphate in Palestine.
Hopefully, cooler heads will prevail but it doesn't look all that promising.

The Latest and Greatest Iraq War Myths...It Is the Time of the Year For Them

~Snooper~

In a post we made waaaaaaaaaay back on 12/14/2007, we brought our readers the following post: Moonbat Intelligence - The Myth. We discussed the continuing psycho-babble from the idgits still yammering and contorting themselves because the once vaunted myths of the Iraq War have one by one, been placed in the Abyss of Obscurity the moonbats and the Leftinistra kook fringe have dug for themselves. As the writers of Strategy Page so predicted, around this time of year, the moonbats will ooze from under their algae coated mud ponds and slither around on their bellies as the reptiles they are. Juan Cole is one of these. The idgit just doesn't get it.

Apparently, the "old myths" didn't hunt anymore so the Leftinistra have invented new ones...simply amazing. We informed our readers many times that the Leftinistra would have to do this very thing...invent new issues because their "issues" and attacks on America went down in flames in 2007...their target of hatred became their conqueror. GWB defeated them at every turn and on every issue.

The "old myths" of the Iraq War:
MYTH ONE...No Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD)
MYTH TWO...The 2003 Invasion was Illegal
MYTH THREE...Sanctions were working
MYTH FOUR...Overthrowing Saddam Only Helped Iran
MYTH FIVE...The Invasion Was a Failure
MYTH SIX...The Invasion Helped Al Qaeda
MYTH SEVEN...Iraq Is In A State of Civil War
MYTH EIGHT...Iraqis Were Better Off Under Saddam
MYTH NINE...The Iraq War Caused Islamic Terrorism to Increase in Europe
MYTH TEN...The War in Iraq is Lost
All of the above are no longer issues, correct? New myths have been created for us for the BDS injected Bush Loathers and fellow anti-Americanists:

10. Myth: The US public no longer sees Iraq as a central issue in the 2008 presidential campaign.
9. Myth: There have been steps toward religious and political reconciliation in Iraq in 2007.
8. Myth: The US troop surge stopped the civil war that had been raging between Sunni Arabs and Shiites in the Iraqi capital of Baghdad.
7. Myth: Iran was supplying explosively formed projectiles (a deadly form of roadside bomb) to Salafi Jihadi (radical Sunni) guerrilla groups in Iraq.
6. Myth: The US overthrow of the Baath regime and military occupation of Iraq has helped liberate Iraqi women.
5. Myth: Some progress has been made by the Iraqi government in meeting the "benchmarks" worked out with the Bush administration.
4. Myth: The Sunni Arab "Awakening Councils," who are on the US payroll, are reconciling with the Shiite government of PM Nuri al-Maliki even as they take on al-Qaeda remnants.
3. Myth: The Iraqi north is relatively quiet and a site of economic growth.
2. Myth: Iraq has been "calm" in fall of 2007 and the Iraqi public, despite some grumbling, is not eager for the US to depart.
1. Myth: The reduction in violence in Iraq is mostly because of the escalation in the number of US troops, or "surge."
This is great stuff here...the Libtards really are in need of psychiatric aid. One of these days, America will rid itself of such ignorant and pompous anti-Americanists...the sooner the better.

Reade the old myths and compare them to the new myths...are they really that much different?

Just askin'.

The Worse CONgress In American History Is To Tout Their Achievements

~Snooper~

If I were the current SoH, touting the achievements of the 110th Congress would be no where near or even close by to the Things To Do List. It is said that Nancy Pelosi is going to start 2008 with the achievements made by the "majority" controlling(?) both Houses. "IS" that insane or what?

They are going to be boasting about their approval ratings LOWER than when the CONgress was GOP controlled and their disapprovals HIGHER than when the GOP was the "majority"?

Please, Nancy. Don't go there. You will only confirm what the world already knows...y'all suck.

Break a leg...we are ready for you.
[...]In a year-end "fact sheet," her office proclaimed that "the Democratic-led House is listening to the American people and providing the New Direction the people voted for in November. The House has passed a wide range of measures to make America safer, restore the American dream and restore accountability. We are proud of the progress made this session and recognize that more needs to be done." [...]
When I read this just a few moments ago, all I could do was sigh. She can't possibly be serious. Not with The New Media knowing what we know and the power we wield.


Uh, Nancy? Y'all failed dismally in a war y'all started and y'all lied to get into power. We know it. You know it. STFU and STFD.

On The Assassination of Benazir Bhutto

~Snooper~

For Snooper's collection of news and blog items in regards to the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, go here.

Sonlit Knight has a post here that has a strong statement and therein, one will find no bluster. The strong statement that kind of grew on me when I first read it this morning is this. Not one single offering from the DNC is remotely qualified to deal with the Islamic Jihadi Menace. Not one.

On the GOP side, there are only two...perhaps three. Sonlit mentioned McCain and Thompson. I would add Hunter to that list. Neither of the three get a lot of press coverage and I have to ask myself and others, "Why is that?"

I placed a link at the very beginning of this post to my Reader shared items for Bhutto. There is a distinct difference in the presidential aspirants' knee-jerk reactions and those that have on-the-spot responses in the stead of reactions. Fred Thompson, by far, has the most intelligent thing to say.

Not one single member of the DNC hopefuls have a clue. If one were to read the nearly 100 or so collected Bhutto pieces, the evidence is clear. This country is in grave danger should anyone other than Thompson, McCain or Hunter gain the White House.

Embattled & Beleaguered, Bush Is Still The Most Admired Man


December 26, 2007

In spite of 7 years of negative press, continual assaults from opponents and leading America in another unpopular war, President George W. Bush, 43rd President of the nation, tops Gallup's recent poll again for the Most Admired Man.

The Gallup Poll, based on random telephone interviews with 1,011 adults, was conducted from December 14 to 16 of this year. For the seventh year in a row, President Bush ranked number one as the Most Admired Man with 10% choosing him. Coming in second as Most Admired Man was former President Bill Clinton with 8% choosing him.

Traditionally, sitting Presidents have topped Gallup's Most Admired Polls each year. During his Presidency, Clinton ranked at the top every year with between 20% selecting him as he took office to just 6% choosing him as he left, tying him for the top spot that year was Pope John Paul II. President Bush enjoys a similar spread during his administration, ranging from a high of 39% in Dec 2001 to the current low of 10%.

Sitting President's have topped this poll every year since 1981, outgoing former President Carter being edged out also by Pope John Paul II in 1980.

Of Bush winning with just 10% of those voting, Gallup says,

"That score is Bush's lowest in the seven years he has been named most admired man, and the fact that it is enough to win suggests that no dominant male personality has captured the public's admiration this year."
A curious claim from Gallup as in their December 2000 polling, they said,
"Bill Clinton has been at the top of this list of most admired men every year since he took office in 1993, with totals that ranged from 20% in 1993 to 18% in both 1996 and 1998. Last year, Clinton was on top with 10% of the vote,"
neglecting to mention that in that current poll, President Clinton tied with Pope John Paul II for Most Admired with just 6% of the vote.

Detractors of President Bush have a difficult time admitting it, but indicators show that America continues to prosper under President Bush's leadership. The Troop reinforcement is working in the Iraqi theater of the War on Terror, unemployment remains very low, the predicted recession has not occurred, inflation remains modest, consumer spending is the best in two years, while naysayers and those predicting doom and gloom continue to be proven wrong.

As the economy continues improving and even the War On Terror results in increased security at home and abroad, Republicans stand a chance of retaking control of the government in the upcoming elections, provided they can show they have learned their lesson on excessive and out of control spending.

With one year left in his second and final term as President, George W. Bush, in spite of everything thrown at him by the opposition, has remained strong and ignored attacks designed to cripple his ability to lead. Even with low overall approval numbers, he still leads the list of Most Admired, with the possibility of finishing his administration with even higher approval.

How history will judge the Bush years remains to be seen. Once all the smoke and dust settles from what is shaping up to be one of the dirtiest and nastiest campaigns in our history, suffering the worst attack upon our soil in our history, enduring unprecedented assaults on his character and abilities and leading a war to put an end to the three decades of terrorist attacks against American interests, George W. Bush will leave office with his head held high and many in America will look back fondly at him.

Ron Paul Exhibits Cluelessness on MTP

~Snooper~

One would think that an individual running for the highest political office in the United States would know better than to say that Iran has no Army, no Navy or no Air Force. And, because Iran doesn't have a military, Iran would never attack Israel.

As incredulous as that sounds, incredulous is the wrong word. Mr Ron Paul, an American Presidential Aspirant, making such statements on a national level news show, leads one to question whether or not the cluelessness extends into other areas.

One can also surmise that Mr Paul doesn't know that for many years, Iran and Iraq were the "super-powers" in that region up until Saddam was ejected from power. One can also pretend that the extremely bloody war Iraq and Iran fought for nearly 10 years was fought with toothpicks and spit balls.

Allahpundit pretty much sums the interview up thusly:
[...] Ron Paul, quite incredibly, thinks Iran has no army, no navy and no air force at all and therefore would never attack Israel. Evidently Paul doesn't realize the utility that ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons would offer an Iran whose president has repeatedly declared his personal desire to wipe Israel off the map. A couple of well-placed nukes could in fact do that, whether Iran has an army or not. Which, by the way, it does. Really. Iran does have an army. A navy and an air force, too, with an indigenously constructed fighter airplane leading the latter into the skies. Paul might want to bone up on that a bit. He'd do well to Google the Shahab series of missiles while he's at it.

Paul also might want to bone up on the US military's presence overseas and who actually pays for it. He's against it, though he doesn't even know how many troops we have overseas or what they're doing or why they're there. That also came out in the interview. And he thinks the US taxpayer pays the entire bill, which isn't true. We pay the bulk of it, but we don't pay all of it. Host countries pick up a sizable portion of the tab, funding everything from the cost of living allowances to the housing that our overseas troops need. All of that and more was packed into an interview that demonstrated once and for all that however well-meaning Paul is on the small government front (an area where he could and does make some sense), he's simply too ignorant on foreign policy and too quick to blame America for just about every bad thing in the world to be trusted with the power of the presidency. No good can come of it. [...]
