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.

Carry On Santa - All Is Secure

~Snooper~

Two versions here and here. (videos)(HT)

audio link here



"'Twas the night before Christmas, he lived all alone,

in a one bedroom house made of plaster and stone.

I had come down the chimney with presents to give,

and to see who in this home did live.

I looked all about, a strange sight I did see,

no tinsel, no presents, not even a tree.

No stocking by the mantle, just boots filled with sand,

on the wall hung pictures of far distant lands.

With medals and badges, awards of all kinds,

a sober thought came through my mind.

For this house was different, it was dark and dreary.

I found the home of a soldier, once I could see clearly.

The soldier lay sleeping, silent, alone,

Curled up on the floor of this one bedroom home.

The face was so gentle, the room in disorder

not how I pictured a United States soldier.

Was this the hero of whom I'd just read?

Curled up on a poncho, the floor for a bed?

I realize the families I saw this night,

owed their lives to these soldiers who are willing to fight.

Soon round the world, the children would play,

and grownups would celebrate a bright Christmas Day.

They all enjoyed freedom each month of the year

because of soldiers like the one lying here.

I couldn't help wonder how many lay alone

on a cold Christmas Eve in a land far from home.

The very thought brought a tear to my eye,

I dropped to my knees and started to cry.

The soldier awakened and I heard a rough voice,

"Santa don't cry, this life is my choice;

I fight for freedom, I don't ask for more,

My life is my God, my Country, my Corps."

The soldier rolled over and drifted to sleep,

I couldn't control it, I continued to weep.

I kept watch for hours, so silent and still

and we both shivered from the cold night's chill.

I didn't want to leave on that cold, dark night,

this guardian of honor so willing to fight.

Then the soldier rolled over, with a voice soft and pure,

whispered: "Carry on Santa, it's Christmas Day, all is secure."

One look at my watch, and I knew he was right,

"Merry Christmas my friend, and to all a good night."

Defamation Resolutions: Enough Already!

I learned about the existence of this CNS News article through a link at Eye On the UN.

UN Passes Islamic ‘Defamation’ Measure, But Critics Hail ‘Backlash’
Thursday, December 18, 2008
By Patrick Goodenough, International Editor

In that article, I found a link to a statement by four human rights experts, named in the last page of the document.

International Mechanisms for Promoting Freedom of Expression
JOINT DECLARATION ON DEFAMATION OF RELIGIONS, AND ANTI-TERRORISM AND
ANTI-EXTREMISM LEGISLATION

Having read that statement, I now endorse it, reserving the exception of the following quoted points, to each of which I dissent. [Emphasis added.]

Recognising the importance to democracy, as well as to holding social institutions accountable, of open debate about all ideas and social phenomena in society and the right of all to be able to manifest their culture, religion and beliefs in practice;
Since Islam sanctifies & mandates genocidal1 conquest2 using terrorism3 as a battle tactic, manifesting its practice is a wrong, not a right.
The definition of terrorism, at least as it applies in the context of restrictions on freedom of
expression, should be restricted to violent crimes that are designed to advance an ideological, religious, political or organised criminal cause and to influence public authorities by inflicting terror on the public.
Advocacy of casting terror, incitement to cast terror and glorification of the act & those who perform it are essential to the perpetuation of terrorism and must be condemned as part and parcel of it.
The criminalisation of speech relating to terrorism should be restricted to instances of intentional incitement to terrorism, understood as a direct call to engage in terrorism which is directly responsible for increasing the likelihood of a terrorist act occurring, or to actual participation in terrorist acts (for example by directing them). Vague notions such as providing communications support to terrorism or extremism, the ‘glorification’ or ‘promotion’ of terrorism or extremism, and the mere repetition of statements by terrorists, which does not itself constitute incitement, should not be criminalised.
Terrorism is a tactic, not an enemy. Moral condemnation of conquest in which men are killed, their widows raped4 and orphans sold into slavery5 is not consequent upon the terror inflicted, it is consequent upon malum in se; the pure evil of aggression against innocent persons. Sanctification of conquest, with a divine mandate to perform it until the entire globe is dominated by Islam6, would be sufficient cause to outlaw the propagation of Islam, even in the absence of its 1398 year history of rapine.

Not withstanding those reservations, I endorse the rest of the statement, particularly the following:
The concept of ‘defamation of religions’ does not accord with international standards regarding
defamation, which refer to the protection of reputation of individuals, while religions, like all beliefs, cannot be said to have a reputation of their own.

Restrictions on freedom of expression should be limited in scope to the protection of overriding individual rights and social interests, and should never be used to protect particular institutions, or abstract notions, concepts or beliefs, including religious ones.

Restrictions on freedom of expression to prevent intolerance should be limited in scope to advocacy of national, racial or religious hatred that constitutes incitement to discrimination, hostility or violence.

International organisations, including the United Nations General Assembly and Human Rights
Council, should desist from the further adoption of statements supporting the idea of ‘defamation of religions’.

In my opinion, that last sentence was poorly written, introducing an ambiguity which should not be allowed to persist. The named bodies should rescind their previous resolutions as listed in the statement, and refrain from passing further resolutions condemning or attempting to outlaw criticism of Islam.

  1. Genocide:
    1. until he had made a great slaughter (among his enemies) in the land. [8:67]
    2. smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them [47:4]
    3. those who had begun to grow hair (pubes) were killed, and those who had not were not killed [Abu Dawud 38.4390]
  2. Conquest:
    1. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah [8:39]
    2. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah ... among the people of the Scripture ... until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. [9:29]
    3. The Good News that Muslims will conquer the Known World, and ultimately the Entire World
  3. Terrorism:
    1. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve [3:151]
    2. ...I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes. [8:12]
    3. Allah brought them down from their forts and cast terror into their hearts [33:26]
  4. Rape:
    1. ...Also (forbidden are) women already married, except those (captives and slaves) whom your right hands possess.... [4:24]
    2. ..."We went out with Allah's Apostle for the Ghazwa of Banu Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus. ... [Bukhari Volume 5, Book 59, Number 459]
  5. Slavery: and a group (of them) you made captives. [33:26]
  6. Global domination:
    1. ...) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world ].... [8:39]
    2. ...to make it superior over all religions even though the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah) hate (it). [9:33]
    3. The Good News that Muslims will Dominate the People of the Book

Eli At Smoldering Jerk Wads Still Lying About Katrina

~Snooper~

Here is the title of the idiot's post and following is one of its pathetic and BDS laced drivel.

Title: Lord Of The Flies In Post-Katrina Louisiana
Retarded verbiage: By now, everyone in America knows that the Bush administration stood by and let hundreds of black Americans drown in the wake of Hurricane Katrina.

The poor fool has issues and only the removal of the brain will fix it. The poor sick and deluded moron will go to its grave a complete moron.

Here is a special audio track for the moron: The NEW New Orleans Theme Song...


The Blagojevich Troofers

~Snooper~

I really don't know what the big deal is here folks. Gov Blago has proclaimed his innocence and Obama has already cleared himself. Why are folks still wondering what Obama is "hiding" about Blago? Get a grip people. More Blago Troofers and ODS sufferings here at Memeorandum...

Instruments of Love and Harmony #12

From Zenit.org comes Final Statement of Catholic-Muslim Forum "Called to Be Instruments of Love and Harmony"
For background information about the meetings, see this Reuters article of 11/06/08.

The statement includes an enumerated list of fifteen points which present a target rich environment In this installment, I'll take on the last two points of agreement.[Links & emphasis added.]

We have agreed to explore the possibility of establishing a permanent Catholic-Muslim committee to coordinate responses to conflicts and other emergency situations and of organizing a second seminar in a Muslim-majority country yet to be determined.

We look forward to the second Seminar of the Catholic-Muslim Forum to be convened in approximately two years in a Muslim-majority country yet to be determined.
Taken at face value, points fourteen & fifteen mean that the participants accept the concept continuing 'dialogue'. How do the conferees hope to respond to "conflicts" and "emergency situations" such as the genocide in Darfur and the repression of Copts in Egypt? How do they hope to respond to and have any beneficial effect on the scenes of terror attacks such as Mumbai?

Will they discuss the divinity, death & resurrection of Jesus? Will they discuss the hadith predicting his return to kill the remaining Jews? Fat chance, just as they will enter detailed discussions of Jihad, genocide & casting terror.

From Zenit.org comes Final Statement of Catholic-Muslim Forum "Called to Be Instruments of Love and Harmony"
For background information about the meetings, see this Reuters article of 11/06/08.

The statement includes an enumerated list of fifteen points which present a target rich environment In this installment, I'll take on the thirteenth point of agreement.[Links & emphasis added.]

Young people are the future of religious communities and of societies as a whole. Increasingly, they will be living in multicultural and multireligious societies. It is essential that they be well formed in their own religious traditions and well informed about other cultures and religions.
Taken at face value, the thirteenth point means that the participants accept the concept of transmitting their own religious tenets & traditions to their offspring. They also agree that their children should be informed about the doctrines & traditions of other faiths.

The hidden subtext is especially subversive. They can't mean genuine, fact based instruction; they must mean prejudicial, fantasy based indoctrination. As evidence, I submit the multitude of deceptions exposed in previous installments in this series. Honest instruction would expose the lies in the joint statement. If students in Catholic schools were required to read the hateful & warmongering passages in Islam's canon of scripture, tradition & jurisprudence, how would their parents react? How would CAIR react? Guess what Muslim students study in the Madrassahs.

Instruments of Love and Harmony #10

From Zenit.org comes Final Statement of Catholic-Muslim Forum "Called to Be Instruments of Love and Harmony"
For background information about the meetings, see this Reuters article of 11/06/08.

The statement includes an enumerated list of fifteen points which present a target rich environment In this installment, I'll take on the twelfth point of agreement.[Links & emphasis added.]

We call upon believers to work for an ethical financial system in which the regulatory mechanisms consider the situation of the poor and disadvantaged, both as individuals, and as indebted nations. We call upon the privileged of the world to consider the plight of those afflicted most severely by the current crisis in food production and distribution, and ask religious believers of all denominations and all people of good will to work together to alleviate the suffering of the hungry, and to eliminate its causes.
Taken at face value, the twelfth point means that the participants accept the concept of "social justice". Lets break it down into discrete elements for easier analysis.

  • ethical financial system
    • regulatory mechanisms
      • protect the poor
        • individually
        • collectively
  • food distribution
    • alleviate suffering
    • eliminate causes
Psalms 15:5 He that putteth not out his money on interest, nor taketh a bribe against the innocent. {N}
He that doeth these things shall never be moved.

2:275. Those who eat Riba (usury) will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by Shaitan (Satan) leading him to insanity. That is because they say: "Trading is only like Riba (usury)," whereas Allah has permitted trading and forbidden Riba (usury). So whosoever receives an admonition from his Lord and stops eating Riba (usury) shall not be punished for the past; his case is for Allah (to judge); but whoever returns [to Riba (usury)], such are the dwellers of the Fire - they will abide therein.
Both scriptures forbid usury. The inordinantly curious may turn to Reliance of the Traveller K3.0 to see some of the particulars.

If you have your pension fund invested, you probably anticipate capital appreciation. If your investment does not grow, a significant part of it may be eroded by inflation, leaving you short of funds when you retire. If you are averse to the risks involved in equity investment, Sharia law leaves you no good options because it forbids taking interest.

No reasonable person will argue that financial regulations should be biased against the poor. Why, then should they be biased against those more wealthy or productive? It is necessary to assume that both sides have an unstated redistributionist agenda.

This brings us to Zakat, the Muslim property tax which is the subject of Book H of Reliance of the Traveller.

H1.1

Zakat is obligatory:

(a) for every free Muslim (O: male, female, adult, or child);

(b) who has possessed a zakat-payable amount (Ar.nisab, the minimum that necessitates zakat, def; for livestock h2.4-5; for grain and dried foodstuffs h3.4; for gold, silver, and other money h4.2; and for trade goods h5.1);

(c) for one lunar year.

H1.2

Non-Muslims are not obliged to pay zakat, nor apostates from Islam (murtadd, def:o8) unless they return to Islam, in which case they must pay for the time they spent out of Islam, though if they die as non-Muslims their property is not subject to zakat(N:because their property is considered to belong to the Muslim common fund (bayt al-mal) from the moment such people leave Islam).

H8.24

It is not permissible to give zakat to a non-Muslim, or to someone whom one is obliged to support (def: m12.1), such as a wife or family member.

So much for the concept of equality.

Turn briefly to the matter of distribution of Zakat. Who gets the proceeds; when our investment firms engage in Sharia compliant transactions, what happens to the 2.5% of the funds which must be paid as Zakat?Read this slowly, let it sink in for a minute.

H8.17: Those Fighting for Allah

The seventh category is those fighting for Allah, meaning people engaged in Islamic military operations for whom no salary has been allotted in the army roster (O: but who are volunteers for jihad without remuneration). They are given enough to suffice them for the operation, even if affluent; of weapons, mounts, clothing, and expenses (O: for the duration of the journey, round trip, and the time they spend there, even if prolonged. Though nothing has been mentioned here of the expense involved in supporting such people's families during this period, it seems clear that they should also be given it).


Food distribution sounds like a good form of charity. What are its long term consequences? Areas of the world where there is a shortage of food tend to have a surplus of human. [If you can't guess, use your mouse to highlight the hidden word.] Will the birth rate decline in those regions if we supply all he food they need? Who will pay for the energy, fertilizer, insecticides, herbicides, seed and labor involved in crop production? Who will pay the shipping & distribution costs? s

What factors contribute to the food shortage? Could the disruption caused by Islamic Jihad play a role? How about the three hours many Muslims spend each day in Wudu & Salat?

The parties agree in one matter: designs on your bank account.

Code Skank Marxist Pink Dweeb Morons...Brain Dead Anti-Americanists

~Snooper~

If these idiots of Code Skank think that this Nation is so bad, why then do they stay here and smell up the environment? With a HT to Gateway Pundit, I will add a video at the bottom of the post. It is about time that SOMEONE from Iraq repeated what many of us have been saying for a very, very long time. In regards to the idiot shoe tosser that the retarded libtards and anti-Americanists are lauding because he acted the ass, had he even thought about doing something like that to either Saddam Insane Hussein or one of his trouser worshipers, the shoe boy, his family, his friends and any or all of his associates would have wound up in one of several places and ultimately would have lost their lives.

The fools should be thanking God for having the Freedom to actually toss a shoe or two without fear of rape rooms or wood chippers. So, when Code Skank and their following of intellectually void idiots praise such a fool, they should also thank God that men in uniform have made it possible that they tool are free to act the ass without fear of a "Hitler Bushite" shredding their worthless selves in the wood chippers that Saddam was so accustomed to using.

So, as a side bar, if Bush was Hitler, Code Pink members would have vanished long ago. Think about it. So, without further ado, enjoy the Iraqi Ambassador shredding the libtard anti-Americanist Code Skank whores alive...pay attention to the body language. More at Memeorandum...


Instruments of Love and Harmony #9

From Zenit.org comes Final Statement of Catholic-Muslim Forum "Called to Be Instruments of Love and Harmony"
For background information about the meetings, see this Reuters article of 11/06/08.

The statement includes an enumerated list of fifteen points which present a target rich environment In this installment, I'll take on the eleventh point of agreement.[Links & emphasis added.]

We profess that Catholics and Muslims are called to be instruments of love and harmony among believers, and for humanity as a whole, renouncing any oppression, aggressive violence and terrorism, especially that committed in the name of religion, and upholding the principle of justice for all.
Taken at face value, the eleventh point means that the participants accept the concept of benign religion. Lets break it down into discrete elements for easier analysis.

  • love & harmony
    • between believers
    • for humanity
  • renouncing
    • oppression
    • aggressive violence
    • terrorism
      • in the name of religion
  • justice
Universal benevolence is part of Christianity, not part of Islam. Islamic charity extends to their Muslim brothers, not to the wider world. Examine 2:273 and the surrounding context. Where does the loot come from, and where does it go?
  • 8:41. And know that whatever of war-booty that you may gain, verily one-fifth (1/5th) of it is assigned to Allah, and to the Messenger, and to the near relatives [of the Messenger (Muhammad)], (and also) the orphans, Al-Masakin (the poor) and the wayfarer, if you have believed in Allah and in that which We sent down to Our slave (Muhammad) on the Day of criterion (between right and wrong), the Day when the two forces met (the battle of Badr) - And Allah is Able to do all things.
They attacked camel caravans & peaceful villages, slaughtered the men, selling the women and children as slaves. Do you imagine that they shared the spoils with the victim class (Kuffar)? Love for humanity as a whole pretty well took a flier with Moe's declaration that he was ordered to fight them until they embrace Islam, when their blood and property would become sacred to Muslims. For those who missed it in a previous installment, it is Sahih Bukhari 1.8.387.

Renouncing oppression? A great sentiment, ain't it, but it ain't part of Islam. Observe 3:110 and the saying which explains its meaning.
  • 3:110. You [true believers in Islamic Monotheism, and real followers of Prophet Muhammad and his Sunnah (legal ways, etc.)] are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin Al-Ma'ruf (i.e. Islamic Monotheism and all that Islam has ordained) and forbid Al-Munkar (polytheism, disbelief and all that Islam has forbidden), and you believe in Allah. And had the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) believed, it would have been better for them; among them are some who have faith, but most of them are Al-Fasiqun (disobedient to Allah - and rebellious against Allah's Command).
    • Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 80:

      Narrated Abu Huraira:

      The Verse:--"You (true Muslims) are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind." means, the best of peoples for the people, as you bring them with chains on their necks till they embrace Islam.
    • 47:4. So, when you meet (in fight Jihad in Allah's Cause), those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when you have killed and wounded many of them, then bind a bond firmly (on them, i.e. take them as captives). Thereafter (is the time) either for generosity (i.e. free them without ransom), or ransom (according to what benefits Islam), until the war lays down its burden. Thus [you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out Jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace Islam...
If you missed the quotes from Reliance of the Traveller, outlining the restrictions placed on conquered Jews & Christians, reading this will make up for it.

Renouncing aggressive violence violates Islamic law. Reliance of the Traveller makes it clear to all who will read it that Muslims may not abjure any part of the Qur'an. There is a list in O8.7, of acts which entail apostasy, which bears the death penalty.[O.8.1, 8.2]
  • O8.7.7 to deny any verse of the Koran or anything which by scholarly consensus (def: b7) belongs to it, or to add a verse that does belong to it;
One verse in Surah Al-Baqarah makes participation in Jihad mandatory.
  • 2:216. Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.
The ayat containing Allah's orders to fight are clear and imperative. I will cite three of them with tafsir links so that you can confirm their obvious meaning.
  • 8:39. And fight them until there is no more Fitnah (disbelief and polytheism: i.e. worshipping others besides Allah) and the religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world ]. But if they cease (worshipping others besides Allah), then certainly, Allah is All-Seer of what they do.
  • The Order to fight until there is no more Fitnah
Terrorism is another Islamic sacrament that no Muslim can renounce.
  • 3:151. We shall cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve, because they joined others in worship with Allah, for which He had sent no authority; their abode will be the Fire and how evil is the abode of the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong­doers).
  • 8:12.Remember) when your Lord inspired the angels, "Verily, I am with you, so keep firm those who have believed. I will cast terror into the hearts of those who have disbelieved, so strike them over the necks, and smite over all their fingers and toes."
Genocidal Jihad & terrorism are sacraments, carried out in Allah's cause: to make his word superior.

Justice is another matter. When Catholics use that word, the subtext is most likely to be Socialism. When Muslims use it, the subtext is "just us". 2:282 starts out with the proper meaning of justice, but deviates from it by declaring female testimony inferior. 4:29-30 deal with Justice between Muslims, of course, Kuffar are another matter; fair prey as per . Bukhari 1.8.387.


Either the Muslim participants in the forum are contradicting Allah & his Messenger and abandoning Islam or their affirmation of peace & justice is insincere. Which is it?

U.N. Council of Idiots

A press release from the UN informs us that the Security Council, by a vote of 14:0 with Libya abstaining, passed a resolution in support of a two state solution of the 'Mid East Conflict'.

The resolution is proof positive that the UN Security council is composed of willfully blind fools. None but the willfully blind can see a vision of a Jewish state and a Muslim state living in peace and security side by side.

Such a condition has never existed, does not now exist and never will exist because Islam is permanent war. Allah's imperative is clear and unmistakable. It names the intended victims and commands Muslims to fight them until the victims are subjugated and pay extortion. The imperative has neither geographic nor chronological limits.

9:29. Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (i.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.
  • This honorable Ayah was revealed with the order to fight the People of the Book, after the pagans were defeated, the people entered Allah's religion in large numbers, and the Arabian Peninsula was secured under the Muslims' control. Allah commanded His Messenger to fight the People of the Scriptures, Jews and Christians, on the ninth year of Hijrah, and he prepared his army to fight the Romans and called the people to Jihad announcing his intent and destination. The Order to fight People of the Scriptures until They give the Jizyah
Moe confirmed receipt of this order to fight, and the confirmation was reported by the oral tradition of his companions.
Sahih Bukhari Volume 1, Book 8, Number 387:
Narrated Anas bin Malik:
Allah's Apostle said, "I have been ordered to fight the people till they say: 'None has the right to be worshipped but Allah.' And if they say so, pray like our prayers, face our Qibla and slaughter as we slaughter, then their blood and property will be sacred to us and we will not interfere with them except legally and their reckoning will be with Allah."...
The eternal duration of Jihad is also recorded in Islamic oral tradition as codified by Abu Dawud.
Abu Dawud Book 14, Number 2526


Narrated Anas ibn Malik:

The Prophet (peace_be_upon_him) said: Three things are the roots of faith: to refrain from (killing) a person who utters, "There is no god but Allah" and not to declare him unbeliever whatever sin he commits, and not to excommunicate him from Islam for his any action; and jihad will be performed continuously since the day Allah sent me as a prophet until the day the last member of my community will fight with the Dajjal (Antichrist). The tyranny of any tyrant and the justice of any just (ruler) will not invalidate it. One must have faith in Divine decree.
The authentic collections of Bukhari & Muslim record another saying which bears more directly upon the present case. "The hour" is a reference to Judgment Day, when the faithful Muslims will at last obtain admission to Paradise and claim their perpetual virgin houris and rivers of wine. This saying sets the slaughter of the Jews as a prerequisite for the Muslims receiving the reward they have so long sought. Read it carefully.
Bukhari Volume 4, Book 52, Number 177:
Narrated Abu Huraira:

Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."
Islam's end time prophecy informs us that when Jesus returns, he will kill the remnant of the Jews. Read this tradition from Abu Dawud's collection, with great care to the portions I have highlighted.
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.

If that seems ambiguous, Ibn Kathir's exegeses of 7:167 is crystal clear.
...He would certainly keep on sending against them (i.e. the Jews), till the Day of Resurrection, those who would afflict them with a humiliating torment. ...
  • ...In the future, the Jews will support the Dajjal (False Messiah); and the Muslims, along with `Isa, son of Mary, will kill the Jews. This will occur just before the end of this world. ... Eternal Humiliation placed on the Jews
Only an ignorant, deluded fool hopes that Islam will allow peace & security for Israel. If they are faithful Muslims, they can not tolerate Israel's existence. They have a divine mandate to make war upon the Jews. Have you not read Rodwell's translation of Al-Taubah 29?
Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been given as believe not in God, or in the last day, and who forbid not that which God and His Apostle have forbidden, and who profess not the profession of the truth, until they pay tribute out of hand, and they be humbled.
Exactly what part of that do you not comprehend? It is an outcome oriented imperative; a do until loop. Let me clarify the matter for you.
  • Muslims must make war upon Jews
    • until
      • they are subjugated & humiliated
      • they make annual extortion payments
      • they submit to domination by Muslims.
  • The Jihad continues until the last day, when:
    • Jesus will return to
      • lead the Muslims in battle against the Jews
      • kill the last remaining Jews hiding behind trees and rocks.
Aside from Allah's imperative to conquer the Jews, there is another problem: Allah's promises. He promised the Muslims that he would give them the land to rule over.
13:41. See they not that We gradually reduce the land (of disbelievers, by giving it to the believers, in war victories) from its outlying borders. And Allah judges, there is none to put back His Judgment and He is Swift at reckoning.

24:55. Allah has promised those among you who believe, and do righteous good deeds, that He will certainly grant them succession to (the present rulers) in the earth, as He granted it to those before them, and that He will grant them the authority to practise their religion, that which He has chosen for them (i.e. Islam). And He will surely give them in exchange a safe security after their fear (provided) they (believers) worship Me and do not associate anything (in worship) with Me. But whoever disbelieved after this, they are the Fasiqun (rebellious, disobedient to Allah).
Allah also promised Muslims a significant military advantage over superior forces, so great a promise that they could not fulfill it and he had to lower his sights.
8:65. O Prophet (Muhammad)! Urge the believers to fight. If there are twenty steadfast persons amongst you, they will overcome two hundred, and if there be a hundred steadfast persons they will overcome a thousand of those who disbelieve, because they (the disbelievers) are people who do not understand.

8:66. Now Allah has lightened your (task), for He knows that there is weakness in you. So if there are of you a hundred steadfast persons, they shall overcome two hundred, and if there are a thousand of you, they shall overcome two thousand with the Leave of Allah. And Allah is with As-Sabirin (the patient ones, etc.).
You need to take into account a few vital facts:
Muslims take, they don't give back. Land conquered by Muslims is placed in an inalienable trust for Allah. This is made clear in Article 11 of the Charter of Hamas. The fact that Israel reconquered land conquered by Caliph Umar is a thorn in their side, a never ending irritant to Muslims.

Worse yet is the fact that Israel's existence proves Allah's promises to be void; that Allah is an impotent idol. This is why peace is impossible: Islam can not tolerate any insult to Allah. The clincher is in this tradition found in Abu Dawud's collection. It informs us that Allah will curse the Muslims if they abandon aggressive warfare in favor of productive pursuits and will not remove the curse until they return to Jihad.
Abu Dawud Book 23, Number 3455:
Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar:

I heard the Apostle of Allah, (peace_be_upon_him) say: When you enter into the inah transaction, hold the tails of oxen, are pleased with agriculture, and give up conducting jihad (struggle in the way of Allah). Allah will make disgrace prevail over you, and will not withdraw it until you return to your original religion.
When have the Muslims ceased from inculcating hatred of Israel in their schools, Mosques & media? When have they ceased from inciting violence against Israel? They have not and they never will. What makes any fool believe that Muslims will conclude and observe a durable peace?
47:35. So be not weak and ask not for peace (from the enemies of Islam), while you are having the upper hand. Allah is with you, and will never decrease the reward of your good deeds.

9:1. Freedom from (all) obligations (is declared) from Allah and His Messenger () to those of the Mushrikun (polytheists, pagans, idolaters, disbelievers in the Oneness of Allah), with whom you made a treaty.
Moe's abrogation after three years of a ten year treaty with the Mekkans is Sunnah; an example to be emulated by all future generations. The bottom line: there is no peace and will be none until someone wises up and eradicates Islam. The so called "peace process" is a waste of time. Concessions & good will gestures only whet Islam's apetite, which can never be sated short of total world conquest so that as Abdullah Yusuf Ali renders it, "there prevail justice and faith in God altogether and everywhere" or, as Hilali & Khan render it, "religion (worship) will all be for Allah Alone [in the whole of the world]".

40,000 Boots On The Ground - DoD Proposed Rule

~Snooper~

We had a GREAT discussion today on my BTR show with mdconservative, Danger Girl and myself in regards to the Posse Comitatus Act (revised 1981, Public Law 97-86) and the current upheaval of some folks on the left and right over the Proposed Rule in 32 CFR Part 185, Defense Support of Civil Authorities (DSCA). This "rule" is not law yet, merely "proposed". And, it is nothing new either. This proposal has been discussed, shelved, revisited, shelved, discussed, debated and recently, revived yet again and officially "proposed" since the Clinton Administration.

One of the many items of interest to me is this rule acknowledges, as far back as the Clinton Administration, that the terrorists, those once classified as ineffective and merely a nuisance, backwards and inept cranks, are actively seeking WMDs whether or not they are nuclear or biological or chemical. We have been hearing since 2001, specifically 91101, that President Bush and his Administration were utilizing fear mongering to police the world. This proposed rule which has now been made "public" negates that banter. Thank God. I have been saying this for a whole lot longer than even the Clinton Administration because I was once "in the know". I still am but that is besides the point. The point is, the threat had been real and it is getting more real by the minute. 91101 solidified that fact except to the power hungry fools due to the lust for political power. President Bush had to be demonized his entire Administration via known lies in order for the Enemies of The State to become the Ruling Party. The "ruling party" is what cracks me up and not in a funny "haha" way.

Danger Girl provide the following links for discussion: U.S. Northern Command gains dedicated response force, Weapons of Mass Destruction Civil Support Teams, Brigade homeland tours start Oct. 1, an Army Times abortion (and we all know this), Emergency Response Units Won’t Perform Law Enforcement, Official Says, New Rapid-Response Forces to Bolster Homeland Defense Mission (also at Right Side News). All of these articles state that the Troops to be deployed are not going to be involved in law enforcement and I have no doubt that they truly believe that and the objectives stated are honest and forthright, except the Army Times article...NEVER trust that rag. However, that isn't what the proposed rule stipulates. I understand governmentese and I have learned in my 53 years on this planet not to trust anyone in DC as far as you can throw.

The following articles are worth the read both in support of and against this proposed rule. (This is my first ever writing on this issue and won't be my last); Congress Funds Five More WMD Civil Support Teams, Guard-Staffed WMD Civil Support Teams Slated for Increase, Home From Iraq, Army Brigade Trains for Homeland Response Mission, Assessing Plans to Deploy U.S. Military on the Homeland Security Front, Posse Comitatus? Its a Stupid Law Anyways, Police State: 20,000 Uniformed Troops inside the US by 2011, From Hell's Heart, BushHitler Stabs At Thee With 20,000 Soldiers!, CRISIS AND LEVIATHAN Critical Episodes in the Growth of American Government, U.S. Army Troops To Serve As U.S. Policemen?, The Age Of Tension: Beware The Special Events, The Age Of Tension: Beware The Special Events, YOUR GOVERNMENT AT WORK - U.S. troops' new mission: America's 'special events' Proposal would allow civilians to activate Army to prevent 'environmental damage'; The Myth of Posse Comitatus, Pentagon to Detail Troops to Bolster Domestic Security.

I have specific issues with this "rule" and seeing that this "rule" will become Federal Law when approved, I will be watching the amending that will be taking place as the debate heats up and trust me, the debate will heat up.

First of all, the POTUS, no matter who it may be, already has the Constitutional Authority to address this "crisis", if there is a crisis at all. I think there is one and has been a crisis for a very long time. It just wasn't politically expedient to bring this up officially until the dreaded "war criminals" GWB and VP-C were either impeached or imprisoned or drawn and quartered for crimes not committed...so much for the libtard version of Due Process. As I said earlier, this "crisis" was ignored by our own home-grown sycophants for political expediency. It is only now that GWB's term is at an end and the New Guy is about to take his place that this issue has been officially declared a Clear and Present Danger. The timing is suspect for many reasons.

Second, we already have Posse Comitatus in place. There are some that say it needs to be sent to the dust heap of stupid laws. That may very well be - my jury is still out on that one - but the fact of the matter is that the Posse Comitatus Act is CURRENTLY law and in place. There isn't any getting around that until such a time that it is rescinded or another law is passed that negates Posse Comitatus.

Before I get into the nitty-gritty of my bothersome issues, I would like to point out that there are some, mostly on the left, that are still suffering from BDS - and now ODS - that are claiming that this is how GWB is going to declare Marshal Law and never leave the White House. These people, namely this one that is a self-vaunted "intelligent" type (sound familiar to anyone?), are just plain brain dead. It claims to be brilliant at breakfast and I suspect that IT doesn't eat much:
"This domestic troop deployment looks at best to be part of the Bush Administration's last-minute plans to leave its fascist mark on this country in perpetuity before leaving. At worst it's a sign that the current Administration has no intention of leaving at all."
Good grief, as Charlie Brown likes to say. We will call this "brilliant one" a dunce to set the record straight. A sitting POTUS doesn't need this "proposed rule" that isn't law yet to declare Marshall Law. These types merely expose themselves as the misguided, clueless and uneducated that they are. And remember, these fools vote and this one more than likely thinks that Palin was Czarbie's VP running mate. I don't know this for sure but it would not surprise me at all. So, on to the meat of my issues with this rule...

No matter how many DoD officials or military officers say that the intent is to protect and to serve, they MUST follow the Rule of Law as the POTUS says it is. Period, no matter who the POTUS is. They follow orders of the chief law enforcement official (POTUS) and the CIC (POTUS). It is that simple. I have no doubt that the Path of Good Intentions is valid and admirable. I am not doubting the verbiage issued by such leaders. My issue is that of abuse or the potential for abuse due to the ambiguity and vagueness contained in the text of the Proposed Rule.
This proposed rule establishes policy and assigns responsibilities for DSCA, supplements regulations regarding military support for civilian law enforcement, and sets forth policy guidance for the execution and oversight of DSCA when requested by civil authorities and approved by the appropriate DoD authority, or as directed by the President, within the United States... [...]
If the Troops will not be involved with civilian law enforcement, the emphasis above needs to be stricken and replaced with verbiage stating that there will be no law enforcement at all. That is not what our Troops are for unless called upon by the Governors of the States. In the text of the "proposal", it is never clearly defined as to how the Troops will "supplement regulations regarding military support for civilian law enforcements". Troops are not considered as "civilian". That only happens when "off-duty" (sort of) and when discharged from service.
[...] Legislative changes over the years have made the existing guidance outdated and inconsistent with current law and the current organizational structure of the Department of Defense. This proposed rule will allow civil authorities access to the correct procedures when they are seeking assistance from the Department by establishing updated policy guidance and assigning the correct responsibilities within the Department for the Defense for support of civil authorities in response to requests for assistance for domestic emergencies, designated law enforcement support, special events, and other domestic activities. [...]
All of the emphasis is the above excerpt are much too vague to me and are subject to interpretation. Also, in the remaining verbiage of the proposal, none of the above is clearly defined or stated. Period. This is unacceptable. Remember, once this proposal becomes Federal Law, the military are bound by Oath to uphold it whether they agree with the "interpretation" or not. The more I read this potential law, the spookier it gets, especially with a Marxist soon to assume the throne.
[...] It has been certified that 32 CFR part 185 does not have federalism implications, as set forth in Executive Order 13132. This rule does not have substantial direct effects on:
(1) The States;
(2) The relationship between the National Government and the States; or
(3) The distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of Government. [...]
I claim bull hockeys! In preceding verbiage before this excerpted piece, it is stated that there is NO direct effects and here we have that it doesn't have "substantial direct affects"...make up their minds, please. Just because someone says a certain thing is so, from experience, the more vague a law is the more abuse of it there will be. Especially if an activist SCOTUS gets a hold of it.

No where in the rule is Congress referred to as being in the loop. The loops consists of the DoD and POTUS. Period. The end. It is an either-or scenario which is a dangerous position to be in as a "civilian" status citizen of the United States. This rule needs lots of work and I am going to send this post as part of the "response" the DoD has stated we can submit. Click the link provided above for the pdf document to obtain the mailing address to send your response and or comments/approval or disapproval.
[...] Imminently Serious Conditions.
Emergency conditions in which, in the judgment of a military commander or responsible DoD civilian official, immediate and possibly serious danger threatens the public and prompt action is needed to save lives, to safeguard public health or safety, or to prevent or mitigate great property or environmental damage. Under these conditions, timely prior authority from higher headquarters to provide DSCA may not be possible before action is necessary for effective response. [...]
There is already in place provisions for the above. All of it. What in the hell do we need a NEW rule? Please forgive me if I sound a little off the mark here or if I am saying that I don't want our Troops to respond to an attack from within or without. Our Troops are much better trained at dealing with attacks and making war on our enemies from within or without. That much is more than obvious. However, the ambiguity of this proposal and the blatant vagueness of it coupled with the timing of it sends chills up and down my spine. I have my reasons for this but choose not to disclose it at this time. I did it today on the show previously linked.
[...] Special Event. An international or domestic event, contest, activity, or meeting, which by its very nature, or by specific statutory or regulatory authority, may require security, safety, and/or other logistical support or assistance fro the Department of Defense. [...]
Sorry. Not anywhere near clear enough at all. I was told by my guests whom I respect very much in many ways said that "meetings" are considered to be anything involving the President or Vice President and I agree. However, that isn't what this rule states. It needs to be more specific. And, what is the definition of a "domestic event"? Knock. Knock. What is a "contest"? What is an "activity"? The vagueness is 100% unacceptable.

On page 3 of this proposed rule, there is a heading called, §185.4 Policy. Therein is where the vast majority of my "problems" with this document lies. In previous verbiage, it is stated that there are no financial burdens on anyone yet: (d) All requests for DSCA shall be written and include a commitment to reimburse the Department of Defense. Waivers or exceptions to reimbursement must be consistent with the law and/or DoD policies. If there is to be no financial hardships involved, where and why are there commitments to reimburse anyone for anything? Again, knock, knock. This next one is a killer...
[...] (h) Federal military forces shall not be used to quell civil disturbances or perform civilian law enforcement functions (e.g., search, seizure, arrest, and surveillance) unless specifically authorized by the President or the Secretary of Defense in accordance with applicable law (e.g., chapter 15 of title 10, U.S.C.). [...]
Really? So much for the Marines stepping in during the riots in LA. So much for Troops stepping in during Katrina and Rita. Oh. Wait. Except when authorized by POTUS or SecDef. Really? What happened to the Governors? The next section, (i), contradicts (h).
[...] (i) Only the Secretary of Defense, or a designated representative, may approve requests from civil authorities for defense assistance during civil disturbances; [...]
Not very well defined, is it? Or, is it?

You will need to care enough about this issue to download, save and print this Proposed Rule in order to understand it fully. I merely excerpted the most questionable portions and left the less questionable aspects out for future posts. If we already have provisions currently published as law, why in the hell do we need this new law? Why not, if it is deemed required to have "clarification", do we not clarify the laws currently in standing? The timing and substance of the proposal reeks of a Police State potential. However...

However, I do understand the need for clarification and I do understand the intent and I agree with the intent. I am merely demanding a more definitive and specific "new law". This proposal needs lots of work. I don't like it at all.

Expect more BTR shows on this subject in the future, especially when the politicians get more serious about it.

I want to thank my guests I had on the show and I am sure we will be discussing this issue for quite some time.

Our Young Are Dumber Than Turtle Turds

~Snooper~

Proof positive that our Yoots aren't being taught anything worth a flying dip dunk.

I did good and so did others like me or I like them. However, take a look at the dingbats...

Our kids are DUMB!! Our "educated" didn't do much better than they did. I wonder if there is a correlation to the "dumbness" of our Yoots to the "dumbness" of the others. Article here.

Instruments of Love and Harmony #8

From Zenit.org comes Final Statement of Catholic-Muslim Forum "Called to Be Instruments of Love and Harmony"
For background information about the meetings, see this Reuters article of 11/06/08.

The statement includes an enumerated list of fifteen points which present a target rich environment In this installment, I'll take on the tenth point of agreement.[Links & emphasis added.]

We are convinced that Catholics and Muslims have the duty to provide a sound education in human, civic, religious and moral values for their respective members and to promote accurate information about each other's religions.
Taken at face value, point 10 means that the participants accept the concept of inculcating sound moral values and teaching the truth about their rivals. They could start by comparing & contrasting Christianity & Islam. Diane Dew's web site has a side by side comparison. They could continue by reading each other's scripture in their worship services.

They won't do that because reading Al-Anfal, Al-Taubah, Al-AZhab, Al-Fath & As-Saff would put the lie to all of their touchy~feely pronouncements how peaceful Islam is. Nor will Imams & Mullahs read the Gospels & Acts to their congregants because it would expose the lies told by Moe about Christianity.

Either the Muslim participants in the forum are contradicting Allah & his Messenger and abandoning Islam or their affirmation multiculturalism is insincere. Which is it?

Click this link for A Common Word between Us and You, which precipitated the recent meetings. [Note the Events section, a recent addition to the page]. A Common Word's home page includes a summary, the missive, media reports, blog posts and various responses from Christian & Jewish leaders. Click this link: Islamic Extortion Letter for my original dissection of the missive or this link: Go Burn With Muhammad, a blog devoted to dissecting the missive and reactions to it.

Know Enough to Vote?

Now the Pew Center has published results of a recent survey of public knowledge. Their survey consisted of ten multiple choice questions propounded to a random sample of 1000 Americans. Their quiz was about 1/3 as long as ISI's and their sample was less than half as large. My perfect score put me in the 93rd percentile; the top 7%.

Pew's average was 35% compared to ISI's 49, probably reflecting an easier quiz because of fewer and easier questions.
In their survey, men scored 8% higher than women whereas the gender differential in ISI's quiz was 7%. Pew found a 2.6% gain among college graduates, whereas ISI found a 13% gain.

No matter how you slice the data, it is obvious that the body politic is woefully ignorant about politics & economics. Ignorance makes them too easily deceived by demagogues. Take the quizzes; if your score is below 60%, then either start studying or burn your voter registration card.

The Meaning of the Shoes


From AOL News
BAGHDAD (Dec. 15) - Thousands of Iraqis took to the streets Monday to demand the release of a reporter who threw his shoes at President George W. Bush, as Arabs across many parts of the Middle East hailed the journalist as a hero and praised his insult as a proper send-off to the unpopular U.S. president. [...]

Journalist Muntadhar al-Zeidi, who was kidnapped by militants last year, was being held by Iraqi security Monday and interrogated about whether anybody paid him to throw his shoes at Bush during a press conference the previous day in Baghdad, said an Iraqi official. [...]

Showing the sole of your shoe to someone in the Arab world is a sign of extreme disrespect, and throwing your shoes is even worse.

Newspapers across the Arab world on Monday printed front-page photos of Bush ducking the flying shoes, and satellite TV stations repeatedly aired the incident, which provided fodder for jokes and was hailed by the president's many critics in the region.
-----------------------------------------------------------
A note from Radarsite: We all understand now the significance of this particular insult in the Arab world -- right? But do we really? Somehow I tend to doubt it. The true significance of this attack on President Bush and symbolically on the United States, and its enthusiastic reception in both the Arab world and in our own liberal media has not really been addressed. One part of this story is of course the breathless eagerness with which our own biased leftist MSM quickly grasps onto any story that will support their long-held conviction that the Iraq war was a foolish criminal endeavor, perpetrated on the American people by a clueless ignorant cowboy -- "the unpopular U.S. president".

But I contend that this incident provides us with an even more important lesson. One which we should have learned by now but have not. It is simply this: Why should this act of hatred and resentment come as a surprise to us? Haven't we accepted the fact yet that 'blood is thicker than water'; or in this case, that the Arab world's adherence to Islam and to Sharia law supersedes any temporary arrangements of convenience made with infidel governments. Treaties made with Arab (or any Muslim) states are in reality no more than cynical measures of expediency. Realpolitik.

Here is the cold hard truth: Islam is, was, and always will be the sworn enemy of Western civilization in general, and of the United States of America in particular. Any thoughts that we can peacefully coexist without risking subsequent betrayal are foolhardy and delusional. Every time we think we have made inroads into the Muslim world we should be automatically circumspect and on guard. For when push comes to shove, all of those minor political or regional differences between Arab/Muslim states will be quickly set aside when confronted with the common enemy of the infidel West. Until the very roots of Islam are torn out of this culture we will never succeed in establishing any meaningful and lasting peace in this region.

The Arab world has lionized the shoe-tosser not just because he confronted and insulted an "unpopular American president", but because he heroically challenged the power and the hegemony of the Infidel West. To not understand the depth of this animosity is to not understand the profound meaning of this monumental global confrontation we are experiencing.

Does this mean that we should just give up on our efforts to reform and democratize the Middle East? Of course not. But we cannot be naive or overly optimistic. We must constantly bear in mind the immutability of the message of the Koran. During the Cold War we developed the concept of 'Trust but verify'. This attitude is even more relevant today when confronted with militant Islam.
