Idiotic Armchair Critic Thinks The Blogger who posted “The List of Things That Offend Muslims” deserves to be shot

The growing Muslim insanity over Geert Wilders’s movie Fitna Shows us once again that Islam is not a tolerant religion. When non-Muslims point out that Islamic jihadists commit acts of violence and justify them by reference to the Qur’an, many non-Muslim and Muslim apologists for jihad, include many who are widely known as “moderates” respond by claiming that the one who is pointing out all this is committing an act of “hatred,” “bigotry,” “Islamophobia,” etc.. They never condemn the acts of violence, hatred and complete intolerance committed by the Islamic nutjobs! As usual the real villain is the one who reports on these actions.

Now, this ill informed idiot at The Armchair Critic is doing the same thing to Kevin Weakley of The Amboy Times, for Posting his “List of Things That Offend Muslims.” The idiot Edroos Alsagoff, says:

You know how much I hate to wish that something really bad happen to anyone (though at times I have expressed my desire to have someone I truly hate suffer in death thanks to a speeding bullet train). But I think I have no excuse to pray that the author of this idiotic post have anything good for him or her.

This guy is a real muppet. I couldn’t care to dig up his background or where he came from for that matter. Anyone who stirs shit like that deserved to be shot really. This is simply a case of asking for it. Don’t even mention terrorists, this chap could be in real trouble even if he bumped into his Muslim neighbour, if he has any.

“Anyone who stirs shit like that deserved to be shot really.” Really? I think it is the Muslims who are stirring the “shit”. Of Course, everything on Weakley’s list is linked, and based on actual events but that means nothing to this knucklehead. I guess Edroos Alsagoff doesn’t believe on reporting the facts. What kind of blogger behaves like this jerk? Maybe he is a left-wing liberal, progresssive, socialist, commie bastard, because they all seem to behave in this manner. I applaud Weakly for reporting THE TRUTH about the over the top hate mongering and complete intolerance, that too many Muslims engage in all too frequently, and to call them on it. We should tolerate Muslim whack jobs and their demands on our societies and behavior?

As Robert Spencer Points out:

It doesn’t seem to occur to Edroos Alsagoff that the ones who are actually stirring the s*** are the ones who fly into irrational rage at the sight of ice cream cones and sneakers, and that to say that someone who points out the silliness and irrationality of that rage deserves to be shot indicates that he has already surrendered to violent intimidation — even as he engages in it himself.

Oh, and Kevin, if this Edroos Alsagoff character is right, it may be time for you to add “The List of Things That Offend Muslims” to…”The List of Things That Offend Muslims.”

No kidding, well said Robert.

U.S. Steps Up Unilateral Strikes in Pakistan

It appears our government is conserned the newly elected government in Pakistan will stop our unilateral attacks on al-Qaeda in Pakistan…

From WaPO:

The United States has escalated its unilateral strikes against al-Qaeda members and fighters operating in Pakistan’s tribal areas, partly because of anxieties that Pakistan’s new leaders will insist on scaling back military operations in that country, according to U.S. officials.

Washington is worried that pro-Western President Pervez Musharraf, who has generally supported the U.S. strikes, will almost certainly have reduced powers in the months ahead, and so it wants to inflict as much damage as it can to al-Qaeda’s network now, the officials said.

Over the past two months, U.S.-controlled Predator aircraft are known to have struck at least three sites used by al-Qaeda operatives. The moves followed a tacit understanding with Musharraf and Army chief Gen. Ashfaq Kiyani that allows U.S. strikes on foreign fighters operating in Pakistan, but not against the Pakistani Taliban, the officials said.

About 45 Arab, Afghan and other foreign fighters have been killed in the attacks, all near the Afghan border, U.S. and Pakistani officials said. The goal was partly to jar loose information on senior al-Qaeda leaders, including Osama bin Laden and his lieutenants, by forcing them to move in ways that U.S. intelligence analysts can detect. Local sources are providing better information to guide the strikes, the officials said.

A senior U.S. official called it a “shake the tree” strategy. It has not been without controversy, others said. Some military officers have privately cautioned that airstrikes alone — without more U.S. special forces soldiers on the ground in the region — are unlikely to net the top al-Qaeda leaders.

The campaign is not designed to capture bin Laden before Bush leaves office, administration officials said. “It’s not a blitz to close this chapter,” said a senior official who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of ongoing operations. “If we find the leadership, then we’ll go after it. But nothing can be done to put al-Qaeda away in the next nine or 10 months. In the long haul, it’s an issue that extends beyond this administration.”

I hope that the administration can convince the new government how this is in all our interests to wipe out islamic terrorists. If not will Pakistan be added to the list of countries harboring and aiding terrorists? Will we push for sanctions? Remember they are a nuclear nation.

Undocumented Aliens, Real Crimes 3/23

Cross posted from The Virtuous Republic

An illegal immigrant, who had twice before been arrested for DUI, was recently sentenced for driving the wrong way and seriously injuring two occupants of a car that he crashed into. Illegal immigration is not a victimless crime.

Funny how local law enforcement can spend their resources to run radar, but they can’t be bothered to check the immigration status of those they arrest. I guess there isn’t any money in that….

Mario Roberto Diaz-Mourillo racked up a four-year prison term for driving the wrong way on a Great Smoky Mountains National Park roadway known as the Spur and crashing head-on into a car full of Florida tourists, leaving two of them with permanent injuries.

But Diaz-Mourillo’s case was as much about illegal immigration, lax enforcement and willful blindness to it as it was about the May 30 crash.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Ed Schmutzer pointed out that Diaz-Mourillo twice ran afoul of the law and even served jail time. But his illegal status was either ignored or undetected.

His first brush with East Tennessee law enforcement came in February 2004 when he was convicted in Washington County of charges including driving under the influence, assaulting a police officer and weapons possession.

His second conviction for DUI came in Knox County just 10 days before the head-on crash on the national park roadway. Diaz-Mourillo fled after the crash, so authorities could not prove whether he had been drinking. National Park Service Agent Jeff Carlisle was credited by Schmutzer with tracking down Diaz-Mourillo despite his use of false identification. Read more….

How Devious is Obama?

Could it be he was preparing to run for president from the very beginning? Could he have carefully chose those non-committal votes in Illinois to cover his tracks? Judicial watch thinks he is hiding something…

The president of a prominent watchdog group said Wednesday that he believes Democratic presidential frontrunner Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) “intended to leave no paper trail” during his time in the Illinois Senate. [snip]

“The more we learn about the Illinois Senator, the more obvious it becomes that he is anything but the ethically upright outsider he purports to be,” said Tom Fitton, the president of Judicial Watch. [snip]

In a statement, Fitton noted that his group has sought access to Obama’s records as a state senator and questioned whether the presidential candidate has been forthcoming with regard to what happened to those documents.

He said that “nobody knows where they are, if they exist at all” and claimed that “Obama’s story keeps changing.”

However, the Obama campaign said the senator’s records are available.

“All of Sen. Obama’s correspondence with state agencies and records of requests Obama made to them on behalf of his constituents are available to the public and have been accessed by our opponents and members of the news media,” said Obama spokesman Ben LaBolt. “Illinois State senators have limited staff – Obama did not have a scheduler – and so no detailed record exists of all of his daily activities in Springfield.”

Fitton argues that Obama’s public accounts of what happened to his records do not mesh with information from the Illinois Office of the Secretary of State. He added that the Judicial Watch investigation “suggests” that the senator could have had his records archived in a way that would grant the public access to them.

“It appears that Obama never kept records of his time in the Illinois state legislature, or he discarded them,” Fitton stated. “Either way, he clearly intended to leave no paper trail.”

The more wwe learn the more questions about Obama we have…

Independent Conservative Talk Radio

Microphone

Thursday Guest: The authors of Seventh Psalm @ 8pm Eastern

Mondays at 8pm easternThe Halls of Valhalla – Conservative
Tuesday Through Thursday 8pm easternThe Uncooperative Radio show -Conservative
Friday’s 8pm EasternThe Patriot’s Pub! – U.S. history, the Constitution and the Founding Father’s

You can listen live, chat or call in without anything special to download! Except for the Patriot’s Pub which is listen only.

Of course, the shows are recorded and available for free downloads as well and appear on all my blogs side bars.

Seventh Psalm is a controversial action-thriller novel
written by two retired United States Air Force officers. The 600-page
book purports to finally explain what, in fact, happened to Saddam
Hussein’s infamous “WMD” that justified the American invasion of Iraq.
Seventh Psalm has developed a significant word-of-mouth following in
the United States, England and Israel, marking it as a unique literary
phenomenon.

Writing under the pen name Jonathan Bruce,
co-authors John Schumacher and Bruce Smith crafted a disturbing novel
considered “too accurate” by many in the New York literary
establishment. Although the focus of Seventh Psalm is Britain and
Israel’s covert war on terrorism, many American editors felt that any
novel concerning the war on terrorism was too “pro-Bush.”

Yet, based upon the lives of real people and actual events, many of
which were never reported, Seventh Psalm reaches the pinnacle for
action thrillers in the new millennium: Terrorist attacks in New York
and England generate a three-continent search for the terrorist leader
who has assumed Osama bin Laden’s role as the “world’s most wanted.”
The pursuit is joined by a battle-hardened British SAS officer and his
beautiful cohort from Israel’s ultra-secret Shin Bet. The pair join
forces in the chase for the terrorists and Iraq’s missing cache of
WMD…as US Air Force F-15s swarm into battle and Israeli tanks blast
into action against new and unexpected enemies! Seventh Psalm races
from the shifting battle lines in the war on terrorism to the ravages
of war-torn Sudan; form the halls of power in London and Washington to
the back alleys of Berlin and Hamburg…All with shocking results that
leap from the headlines of tomorrow’s New York Times!

Through the lives and actions of four major characters; British SAS
officer, Colin Blackford and his love interest, an Israeli Shin Bet
operative; a rogue Palestinian terrorist, Mustafa Quomuz, and a German
female terrorist (a child of the Bader-Meinhof faction) Seventh Psalm
answers “THE” question: What became of Saddam Hussein’s WMD? The
weapons that ‘justified’ the American invasion of Iraq? Seventh Psalm
features vibrant military action and political intrigue and explains
the day-to-day vigilance of those who serve on the front lines of the
global war on terror. Seventh Psalm highlights the new “hot spots”
where the war on terrorism will next erupt and takes you to places on
the globe never reported on the nightly news!

China’s Current Problems

China is living in interesting times. So, let’s visit their current problems…

A US-trained former Tibetan guerrilla who waged a long campaign against the Chinese says peaceful protests and international pressure are the only ways to end the deadly unrest in Tibet.

“The Dalai Lama will never change his ‘middle way’ (of more autonomy but not independence) and or the path of non-violence,” 73-year-old Norbu Dorje, who was trained by the CIA nearly half a century ago, told AFP.

“Most Tibetans will follow what the Dalai Lama says, but there are many young people who want to demonstrate violently. But this will not work,” he said.

Which leads to the current protests in Tibet and China’s response…

Led by Buddhist monks, protests had begun peacefully in Lhasa early last week but erupted into rioting on March 14, drawing a harsh response from Chinese authorities.

Hundreds of paramilitary troops aboard at least 80 trucks were seen traveling along the main road winding through the mountains into southeastern Tibet. Others set up camp and patrolled streets in riot gear, helmets and rifles in the town of Tiger Leaping Gorge, a tourist attraction in Yunnan province bordering Tibet.

Farther north, the largely Tibetan town of Zhongdian, renamed Shangri-la a decade ago, was swarmed by 400 armed police. Many carried rifles and what appeared to be tear gas launchers. Residents walked freely among the military, and there was no sign of a daytime curfew.

The troop mobilization was helping authorities reassert control after the broadest, most sustained protests by Tibetans against Chinese rule in decades. Demonstrations had flared across Tibetan areas of Sichuan, Gansu and Qinghai provinces in support of protests that started in the Tibetan capital of Lhasa.

China has also blocked any foreign media coverage and their state run tv has portrayed the protesters as violent and out of control from the beginning. We really don’t know what is going on over there right now in any true detail.

Tibetans have struggled for many decades to achieve independence from foreign domination. Although demonstrations have occurred before, resulting in no apparent change in the status quo, the difference this time can be attributed to the age of the protesters.

They are members of a younger generation, who, having grown up during an era of stepped-up Chinese suppression of Buddhism, have not been properly exposed to its tenets. Which explains the use of violence, which is against Buddhist teaching.

Restraint from killing is the first of 10 precepts that a Buddhist undertakes as a vow during his ordination.

“But it is not only school but the form of upbringing itself,” Mr. Tsering said. “And all qualified Buddhist masters were educated before 1959, and that generation is passing away.”

A slight period of leniency was allowed in the late 1980s, “but we now are back to Cultural Revolution days,” he said, referring to Mao Zedong’s violent campaign in the late 1960s to enforce strict ideological conformity to his rule.

Breaking the line of direct master-to-disciple spiritual teaching means that younger Buddhists “don’t receive full instructions, and when you miss them, you can’t get them back,” said Marilyn Goldberg, chairwoman of ancient studies at the University of Maryland Baltimore County, who has helped found the Tibetan Buddhist Center on Capitol Hill.

China is actually reaping the fruits of it’s own policy.

“There is an irony here,” Mr. Tsering said of the sporadic violence by the youthful protesters. “While some of the incidents that have taken place can be said to be non-Buddhist, they do it for the promotion of their faith. At the collective level, they are doing it out of desperation.”

Ill treatment of monks spurred them on, he said.

Buddhism, which is more often seen as a philosophy and way of life than a religion, has at its root the belief that acts have consequences. Virtuous actions affect the environment positively, and negative or violent acts cause suffering, in what is known as the law of karma, or fate. The attainment of enlightenment, or state of grace, can only be achieved through virtuous acts that then can influence the course of a person’s life and hence benefit the world.

“You talk to some lamas, and you hear them say Tibetans are reaping karma from their past feudal system,” said Ms. Goldberg. She suggests that even suicide is considered a “nonvirtuous” act in Buddhist teaching.

“The idea that you are willing to take on bad karma in doing something nonvirtuous means you obviously are choosing the most skillful means to achieve an end despite the fact you are incurring negative karma.”

Ritual practices in Buddhist teachings are “quite distinct” among various schools, said Lucinda Peach, associate professor of philosophy and religion at American University, but “the everyday ethics are the same.”

It’s important “to recognize there often is a disparity between the ideal of religion and practice on the ground,” Ms. Peach said. “We have many examples of this: when violence by monks in Burma got out of control, and similarly in Sri Lanka. It happens when peaceful methods have been tried and failed and nothing has changed.” That is when people’s sense of dispossession and lack of alternatives wins out, she said.

“Tibetans are people, too, and people can only be pushed so far before they pick up a gun and fight back,” said writer and social activist Maura Moynihan. “Buddhism is about peace and nonviolence, but there is only so much you can stand. It’s all very complicated … the Dalai Lama says, ‘I can’t tell people what to do.’ ”

“If the situation goes beyond control, I don’t think His Holiness will have any qualms about stepping down,” Mr. Tsering said. “He has three commitments. The first being promotion of human values, the second promotion of interreligious understanding, and the third is Tibet.”

Another interesting turn of events caused by the protests and China’s reaction is the candidate from the opposition ruling Democratic Progressive Party, Frank Hsieh, has gotten a lift in his presidential election bid, who previously seemed headed toward a humiliating defeat.

Beijing’s crackdown on Tibetan protesters has given the ruling-party candidate a chance to portray the Nationalists as pro-Beijing weaklings who could not defend the island’s sovereignty.

Beijing considers self-governing Taiwan a renegade province and hopes to one day reunite it with the mainland.

“As we look at Tibet, we must think about our own fate,” Mr. Hsieh said this week. Yesterday, he suggested that a vote for more-China-friendly Nationalists could make Taiwan “a second Tibet,” Reuters news agency reported.

Mr. Ma’s party advocates eventual unification with China, while Mr. Hsieh’s seeks independence.

Mr. Ma warned against comparing Taiwan to Tibet, which has just elected Taiwan’s opposition candidate, Ma Ying-jeou, which is promising to expand economic ties with China while protecting the island from being swallowed up politically by its giant communist neighbor.

Ma and Hsieh have both said they want a less confrontational relationship with China. But they were divided on how best to deal with Beijing, which presents both a huge opportunity for the island’s powerful business community and a looming threat to its evolving democracy.

Ma has based his campaign on promises to reverse the pro-independence direction of outgoing President Chen Shui-bian and leverage China’s white-hot economic boom to re-energize Taiwan’s ailing high-tech economy.

He has proposed a formal peace treaty with Beijing that would demilitarize the Taiwan Strait, 100-mile-wide waterway that separates the two heavily armed sides. But he has drawn the line at unification, promising it would not be discussed during his presidency.

Economically, he wants to lower barriers to Taiwanese investment on the mainland – it already amounts to more than $100 billion – and begin direct air and maritime links between the sides.

Ma is particularly interested in expanding the China-Taiwan high-tech connection, which every year sends billions of dollars’ worth of Taiwan’s advanced components to low-cost assembly plants along China’s rapidly developing east coast.

That interest resonated with businessman Wang Wen-ho, who cast his ballot for Ma at a Taipei high school.

Taiwan and the mainland split amid civil war in 1949, but China still considers the island to be part of its territory. Beijing has threatened to attack if Taiwan rejects unification and seeks a permanent break.

Taiwan is concerned china might try the same thing with Taiwan that they are doing in Tibet. However, even if they are thinking about it, I believe they would wait until after the Olympics.

Records show drop in Clinton’s policy role

So much for your experience Hillary…

From the boston globe:

Hillary Clinton’s daily schedules show that her formal policy role in the presidency of her husband, Bill Clinton, shrank once Congress shelved the healthcare plan she helped craft in the administration’s first two years.

The 11,046 pages of daily schedules the Clinton Presidential Library released yesterday show that during 1993 and much of 1994, Clinton met almost every weekday with healthcare advisers or key lawmakers. Her schedules document a grueling itinerary of trips to hospitals and healthcare conferences around the country where she met with elected officials and spoke with patients and doctors. But after Congress killed her plan to guarantee every American access to health insurance in 1994, the schedules show, her days became filled with the more traditional, ceremonial events attended by presidents’ wives instead of policy meetings.

Clinton also was home in the White House on a half-dozen days when her husband had sexual encounters there with intern Monica Lewinsky, according to her schedules.

Seems like you have experience being the first lady, but not on policy. Your healthcare policy was a dismal failure and after that, back to planning parties for you! You were so involved Billy boy was diddling Monica right under your nose.
