French youths (Muslims) demonstrating their youthful (Muslim) exuberance

French youths (Muslims) demonstrating their youthful (Muslim) exuberance

Please allow us to translate a story from France, reported by the BBC, found in an Australian newspaper, but generally ignored in the United States.

French youths burned 317 cars and wounded 13 police officers overnight during the now traditional bout of street violence on the eve of the Bastille Day national holiday, police say.

Paris police said 240 people had been arrested, almost double the number held after unrest on the same day last year.

The injured officers are suffering from hearing difficulties caused by home-made explosives blowing up beside them.

Last week, the death of a young man in police custody caused three nights of riots in the southern town of Firminy.

Police said Mohamed Benmouna, a 21-year-old of Algerian origin, had died after trying to hang himself in a cell earlier in the week.

So when you strip away the politically-correct reportage, you understand that “French youths” is an euphemism that actually means “Muslim youths.” You know, the same ones who’ve begun the delightful tradition of rioting and burning cars to celebrate the freedom they’ve found in France.

But, of course, it might offend some “French youths” if that story were to be reported…uhhh…accurately.

Reporting from Waziristan, this is Osama Bin Laden, Action News al Jazeera

"Reporting from Waziristan, this is Osama Bin Laden, Action News al Jazeera."

MSNBC now has some competition for the virulently anti-American American TV viewer.

Al Jazeera English language service began 24-hour a day broadcasts in Washington, D.C. on July 1.

But as Forbes points out, Al Jazeera has a bit of a marketing problem:

Though well respected among Muslims worldwide, in the U.S. Al Jazeera is presumed to be biased against the U.S. and western Europe. It has, at any rate, some controversial connections–or, depending on your point of view, courageous reporters. Correspondent Taysir Alouni interviewed Osama bin Laden just after the Sept. 11 attacks and is now under house arrest in Madrid after a Spanish court convicted him in 2005 of transporting cash for al Qaeda. Correspondent Tarek Ayoub was killed in a U.S. missile strike on Al Jazeera’s Baghdad headquarters in 2003; Alouni, then Baghdad bureau chief, helped recover Ayoub’s body. Then there’s Sami Al-Hajj, an Al Jazeera cameraman who was arrested in Afghanistan in 2001 and held at Guantanamo Bay for six years. Al-Hajj claims that he was beaten and force-fed prior to his release, without charge, in May 2008. In January, during the war in Gaza, the network was the only TV newscaster with reporters on both Palestinian and Israeli sides of the conflict.

Burman seeks to turn skepticism about the network’s point of view into a benefit. “We aim to appeal to viewers who get tired of Western or American perspectives and want a more global view of the world,” says Tony Burman, managing director of al-Jazeera English.

MSNBC executives must be very worried that their network will be abandoned by viewers who want to watch a real anti-American network instead of a cheap knock-off.

2,000,000 Muslims have disappeared under mysterious circumstances since President Obama took office

2,000,000 Muslims have disappeared under mysterious circumstances since President Obama took office

In one of the greatest unreported genocides in history, President Obama has quietly killed off 2,000,000 American Muslims. At least that’s what appears to have happened.

In his Cairo speech on June 4, he mentioned “nearly seven million American Muslims in our country today.” Yet in an interview this week with the Pakistani newspaper Dawn, he said “we have five million Muslims.”

Fact is, most authorities questioned the President’s original seven million figure and will also question his lowered number. For example, the U.S. Census Bureau cites a Pew Forum study that says Muslims comprise just 0.6% of the American population. The CIA World Factbook uses the same figure. That would indicate a total American Muslim population of just 1.8 million.

Where did Obama’s 2,000,000 missing Muslims go? We suspect that they’re off on a hike with South Carolina Governor Sanford.

UN Special Rapporteur Frank La Rue doing whatever it is special rapporteurs do.

UN Special Rapporteur Frank LaRue doing whatever it is special rapporteurs do.

Frank La Rue is a UN Special Rapporteur on the right to free expression. (Only a bloated bureaucracy like the UN could come up with a title like “rapporteur.”)

Anyway, La Rue found himself in hot water last week at the Organization of the Islamic Conference. All because he had the nerve to say, “Restrictions (on free speech) should never be used to protect particular institutions or abstract notions, concepts or beliefs, including religious ones.”

He went on to say that “defamation of religions does not accord with international standards on freedom of expression.”

That’s when the couscous hit the fan. Angry Muslim representatives from Africa, the Gulf States, Pakistan, Algeria, Egypt, Malaysia, Sudan and Yemen want La Rue fired for…well…for supporting free speech.

Luckily, La Rue found support from the United States, the United Kingdom and several other nations who pointed out that the UN’s free speech rapporteur should feel free to speak freely.

In the words of MediaWatchWatch.org, “Allah forbid that an officer responsible for the protection of freedom of expression should be free to express his support for freedom of expression!”

Muslims are very sensitive people. Do not offend them. Ever.

Muslims are very sensitive people. Do not offend them. Ever.

Read that headline again. The magazine wasn’t pulled because it did offend Muslims. It was pulled because it might offend them.

Inside Time is a free monthly mag distributed to prisoners in the UK. The magazine had to recall its latest issue – all 50,000 issues – because politically-correct do-gooders are afraid that a humorous article and and cartoon might upset Muslim inmates.

“Porky’s Revenge,” an article written by prisoner Andy Thackwray, humorously hypothesized that swine flu is part of a plot by Osama Bin Laden “eradicate every pig in Christendom.”

Thackwray wrote:

Yes, not too long ago in a cave somewhere in deepest Afghanistan, our bearded foe created his halal flu virus to totally wipe out the pigs of the Western world, and hopefully see the end of pork as we know it. Only trouble was, the young terrorist Bin Laden hand-picked to fly across the Atlantic to carry out the wicked deed was not only a goat short of a full flock, he’d also never ventured out of his village before. So, with geography not being one of his strong points, coupled with his poor command of the English language, it’s not surprising that he got off the plane one stop early thinking he was in Kansas, America when really he was in Cancun, Mexico. There, he set the Bin Laden flu virus free on a Mexican pig farm instead of on an American one as planned – what a knob!

The cartoon of the bearded, turbanned pig? It’s out, too.

Uh-oh. Along comes a group called Diversity at Wormwood Scrubs (just seeing the word “diversity” in the name of an organization immediately sets off alarms in our heads) which complained that the article and cartoon “might be offensive to Muslims”.

So Inside Times surrendered faster than the French army and reprinted the magazine without the story and cartoon at a cost of as much as $30,000.

Even worse, poor Thackwray has been slapped with a Disciplinary Offence, put in the Segregation Unit, and will be transferred to another prison.

Let’s just make sure we understand this: They’re afraid Muslims might be offended by an article and cartoon, but they’re ok with the fact that the prison punishes prisoners in “The Segregation Unit?”

It’s a very strange world we live in.

Is it possible that President Obama failed math? That would answer a lot of questions.

Is it possible that President Obama failed math? That would answer a lot of questions.

We heard a joke today. It’s a sick joke, but it goes to prove a point. It goes like this:

Rahm Emanuel heard about the Brazilian plane crash, ran into the Oval Office and said, “Mr. President, we just lost 200 Brazilians.”

Obama looks concerned and says, “How many trillion in a brazillion?”

Point is, this guy proves over and over that he has no grasp of basic math.

Obviously, the projected deficits prove that trillions are meaningless to him. But now it appears that he has no grasp of millions, either.

As it was reported in the New York Times, “In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as ‘one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.’”

“’And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world,’ Mr. Obama said.”

That’s nonsense. According to NationMaster.com, the United States ranks just 34th in the world with approximately 6,000,000 Muslims. That puts us right behind tiny nations like Tajikistan, Burkina Faso, Kazakhstan, Azerbiajan, and the President’s own Kenya. Many authorities think that 6,000,000 number is vastly inflated.

Obviously, Obama has trouble with complex numbers. He’s baffled by millions, billions and trillions. In fact, the only number he’s really concerned with is The One.

This isn't just another culture, it's another planet.

This isn't just another culture, it's another planet.

This is one of those items you rarely read in the biased liberal media because it calls into question their devotion to moral relativism.

A 22-year old woman is fighting for her life after being caned 39 times in Bangladesh.

Police chief Moshiur Rahman said the 22-year-old unmarried woman angered Islamic clerics by telling friends that a neighbor was the father of her six-year old son.

When she and the alleged father appeared before a Islamic court, the man denied the charge.

“He held a Koran in one hand and swore to the village clerics that he was not the father of the boy. The village court found him not guilty,” Rahman said. “They also issued a fatwa that the woman should be caned 39 times for lying.”

Half the players in the NBA immediately called their attorneys and told them to try “the Bangladeshi defense.”

Religious zealot George Bush thinks America is a Christian nation.

Religious zealot George Bush thinks America is a Christian nation.

That idiot, former President George Bush, showed his total disregard for the separation of church and state today when he told a French reporter that the United States was a Christian nation.

Here’s how the New York Times reported it:

“In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Bush noted that the United States also could be considered as ‘one of the largest Christian countries in the world.’”

“’And one of the points I want to make is, is that if you actually took the number of Christian Americans, we’d be one of the largest Christian countries in the world,’ Mr. Bush said.”

Shocking, isn’t it. Except for one thing. We switched two words in the New York Times story. We substituted “Bush” for “Obama” and “Christian” for “Muslim.”

Even though the statement we attributed to Bush would have been true, just imagine the leftist howls of protest about the separation of church and state if he had actually said it.

Yet, instead of condemning Obama’s demonstrably false statement as a violation of church and state, the liberal media merely quibbles about his numbers.

In the words of King Barack, “l’État, c’est moi.” And in the words of the press, “l’État, c’est il.”

Yeah, but it might have been nice if someone talked about this stuff before the election.

ABC News’ Jake Tapper actually confronted the unconfrontable truth of Barack Obama’s Muslim roots Tueday on his ABC blog.

His willingness to deviate from the media’s blind allegiance to Barack Obama is truly startling. If Tapper keeps this up he’s likely to become ABC’s new Siberian correspondent.

The Emergence of President Obama’s Muslim roots

The other day we heard a comment from a White House aide that never would have been uttered during the primaries or gen4ral election campaign.

During a conference call in preparation for President Obama’s trip to Cairo, Egypt, where he will address the Muslim world, deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications Denis McDonough said “the President himself experienced Islam on three continents before he was able to – or before he’s been able to visit, really, the heart of the Islamic world – you know, growing up in Indonesia, having a Muslim father – obviously Muslim Americans (are) a key part of Illinois and Chicago.”

Tapper concluded:

In his April 6 address to the Turkish Parliament, President Obama reference how many “Americans have Muslims in their families or have lived in a Muslim majority country. I know, because I am one of them.”

Well, that clears it all up. He’s one of them. Because he certainly hasn’t acted like he’s one of us.

Attention, jihadists: This is the wrong Rusty.

Attention, jihadists: This is the wrong Rusty.

Don’t you hate it when Islamist extremists threaten your life? Especially when they do it by mistake? 

That’s what happened to radio talk show host Rusty Humphries. He was the target of a fatwah issued on a vile blog called “The Jew Report.” Unfortunately, the genius jihadists confused Rusty Humphries with Rusty Shackleford, a pseudonym used by the author of My Pet JAWA Report, a website that exposes online support of Islamic terrorists.

The threat, which included a photo of Humphries, said: “Yes this Fat descusting (sic) pig you are looking at is the boss of the website Jawareport.com but their are many fat kafirs like him you might ask why are we talking about him here’s why.”

“The Shaabab and muslim Leaders have said enough is enough he has to go and they dont mean move….Inshallah we will see his Fat rottan (sic) torso dumped in the side of the road or in some Florida swamp.”

In other news, the same Muslim extremists hage declared a fatwah on spelling and grammar.

Bad news for Elton John. According to a recent survey, British Muslims have zero tolerance for homosexual acts.

What’s that? They didn’t mean show business acts performed by homosexuals? Oh. Our apologies to Elton.

Gallup conducted telephone and face-to-face interviews with 500 Muslims in the UK, France and Germany.

“The most dramatic contrast was found in attitudes towards homosexuality,” the study said. “None of the 500 British Muslims interviewed believed that homosexual acts were morally acceptable.”

Remarkable. They couldn’t find a single British Muslim who would come out publicly in support of homosexuals. Not one.

“By comparison, 35% of French Muslims found homosexual acts to be acceptable,” it continued. “A question on pornography also elicited different reactions, with French and German Muslims more likely than British Muslims to believe that watching or reading pornography was morally acceptable.”

So much for the glories of multiculturalism. Like all liberal philosophies, it grossly over-promises and dramatically under-delivers. Kind of like an Elton John concert.

Miss Congeniality 2009, Farina al-Muqtar bin Akbar, shows her stuff during the swimsuit competition

Call us blasphemous, but for Christ’s sake, how would they know?

The Saudi’s are putting on a little competition that may never rival the excitement of the Miss Universe pageant, but it does have a definite fervor about it. A religious fervor, that is.

Here’s how Associated Press described it:

Sukaina al-Zayer is an unlikely beauty queen hopeful. She covers her face and body in black robes and an Islamic veil, so no one can tell what she looks like. She also admits she’s a little on the plump side. But at Saudi Arabia’s only beauty pageant, the judges don’t care about a perfect figure or face. What they’re looking for in the quest for “Miss Beautiful Morals” is the contestant who shows the most devotion and respect for her parents.

”The idea of the pageant is to measure the contestants’ commitment to Islamic morals… It’s an alternative to the calls for decadence in the other beauty contests that only take into account a woman’s body and looks,” said pageant founder Khadra al-Mubarak.

“The winner won’t necessarily be pretty,” she added. “We care about the beauty of the soul and the morals.”

Too bad Perez Hilton wasn’t invited to judge the Saudi Miss Morality pageant. From what we hear, the Saudis are far less tolerant of gay marriage than Miss California is.

How does a terrorist mother choose which child to take to Paradise?

How does a terrorist mother choose which child to take to Paradise?

According to the old saying, there are none so blind as those who will not see. And according to the new saying, there are none so nuts as those who will blow up their own children.

In this case, the left is blind. Because they refuse to see the insanity that guides our enemies.

Here’s how Jonathan Kay describes it in Canada’s National Post:

Having spent this morning catching up on my weekend reading, I came across this Page 4 article from Friday’s New York Times. Here’s the lead paragraph: “BAGHDAD — At least 80 people died and 120 others were injured Thursday in three bombings, one by a female suicide bomber in Baghdad who, Iraqi officials said, held a young child’s hand as she set off her explosives among a group of women and children receiving emergency food aid.”

We think this is one of the moderate terrorists President Obama wants to negotiate with. had she been one of the extremists she would have blown up her whole family.

Good luck with that strategy, President Obama.

Soon Obama will be wearing a T-shirt that says, "My grandma went to Mecca and all I got was this lousy T-shirt."

Looks like 2009 is going to be a big, big year for Sarah Obama, the President’s grandmother.

First she attended her definitely, positively, absolutely non-Muslim grandson’s Presidential inauguration in January. Now it’s been announced that she will attend the hajj. According to FreeDictionary.com, “at least once in a lifetime a Muslim is expected to make a religious journey to Mecca and the Kaaba; for a Muslim the hajj is the ultimate act of worship…”

The Daily Times of Pakistan reports:

US President Barack Obama’s paternal grandmother, Sara Obama, will perform haj this year along with her son Syed Obama, a private TV channel reported on Saturday. According to the channel, Sara and Syed will also visit Dubai before going to Saudi Arabia for performing haj. Sara (85) is an active participant in welfare and charity programmes. The channel said performing haj is one of the most desired wishes of the US president’s grandmother. daily times monitor.

Grandma’s trip is being paid for by Kenyan property tycoon Dr Sulaiman Al Fahim, who will also accompany her on the Hajj.

A few weeks ago, we reported that Kenya’s Christians and Muslims were battling for the soul of Sarah Obama.

Looks like the Muslims won.

Seventh Day Adventist terrorists are causing trouble for President Obama's grandmother in Kenya.

Oh, my! We have a battle going in Kenya. Muslims claim Christians are trying to convert Sarah Obama, who just happens to be the president’s grannie.

Mrs Obama, who’s been basking in her grandson’s aura since he became the most powerful man in the world, was recently stopped from going to a Seventh Day Adventist Church by local Muslims who feared she might convert to Christianity.

Not to worry, say the Seventh Day Adventists. They say she had merely been invited to attend one of their events.

“We had invited her to grace our meeting in Kisumu which was to mark the end of a three-week convention, but although she had prepared, she did not attend,” said Lewis Ondiek, a senior church figure.

Hey, Reverend Wright. Get your butt on a plane bound for Kenya. You may have lost one Obama, but it looks like there’s another one ripe for conversion.

The President of the United States bowing to the King of a country that allows 60-year old men to marry girls younger than his daughters Malia and Sasha.

The President of the United States bowing to the King of a country that allows 60-year old men to marry girls younger than his daughters Malia and Sasha.

Great news from Saudi Arabia. Really great news. A Saudi court has ruled that a 60-year old Saudi man cannot have sex with his 8-year old wife.

Ahhh, but don’t break out the champagne quite yet. The court didn’t annul the marriage nor condemn the marriage nor even raise an eyebrow over the marriage. It just said the old geezer couldn’t violate the girl until she reached puberty.

Justice Minister Muhammad Issa said he wanted to end to the “arbitrary” way in which Saudi parents marry off underage girls. But he said nothing about outlawing the practice. Not a word.

This brings up a few questions for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg:

Is this one of those international laws you want to use as precedent in American law? If you’re not following the United States Constitution, how do you determine which international laws to follow and which ones to ignore? Will your choices as “arbitrary” as those of the Saudi judge? And finally, are you really as friggin’ uninformed and un-American as you appear to be?

Just wondering.

Oh, those mapcap cutups at the New York Times. Sometimes we just can’t tell if they’re yanking our chains or just complete morons.

The paper of record ran a story about Hezbollah on Tuesday and never quite got around to using the word “terrorist.” Instead, they called the group as a “military, political and social organization in Lebanon with strong ties to Iran.”

Excuse us, but we’re having a little difficulty reconciling the “social organization” aspect of Hezbollah with the article’s opening paragraph:

“Egypt released new details on Monday of what it said was a Hezbollah plot to smuggle weapons into the Gaza Strip, to attack Israeli tourist sites in the Sinai Peninsula and to fire on ships in the Suez Canal. Officials said the police were hunting for 10 Lebanese suspects believed to be hiding in the mountainous terrain of central Sinai.”

We think the Times is right. Hezbollah is just a bunch of crazy kids trying to have a good time. We hear their Spring Formal Dance and Non-Virgin Stoning is the highlight of Lebanon’s social calendar.

Merry band of Islamic Somalian Robin Hoods preparing to steal from the rich, give to the poor, and slaughter damn near anyone who crosses their path.

If you’re an aid worker, consider yourself lucky that you got out of 2008 alive. Reuters reports that last year was the deadliest ever for aid workers. But the wire service left something very important out of its report – who did the killing?

Here’s how CreepingSharia.com revealed what Reuters didn’t or wouldn’t or dasn’t:

al-Reuters reports that 2008 was the deadliest year on record for aid workers and that three countries were responsible for most of the violence. What Reuters fails to mention is what those three countries – Somalia, Afghanistan, and Sudan – have in common that contributed to the killings: Islam.

In fact, the words Islam, Muslim, jihad, and sharia – all significant factors in the record number of aid worker deaths – are never mentioned by al-Reuters, who claims the deaths are an alarming trend.

Unfortunate? Absolutely. Disgusting? Without doubt. Alarming? Not really. Anyone paying any attention at all could tell you jihadists are killing on a regular basis. The alarming trend is not the killings but the refusal of Western governments and the mass media to acknowledge and report on the jihadists and ideology behind the killing. Not to mention policies forbidding use of those terms.

What’s that? There were no bands of crazed 13th century Christians raping and pillaging anywhere in the world? No conservatives slaughtering in the name of God? And no beheadings by disgruntled Republicans?

This is going to come as a big surprise to the Department of Homeland Security.

Janet Napolitano's Department of Homeland Security posse

Another story the media just conveniently overlooks in its efforts to be politically correct:

Those darn moderate Taliban factions with whom President Obama wants to negotiate are already causing problems in Pakistan.

Here’s how the ANI news agency reports the story:

Pakistani’s Taliban will not lay down heir arms in a northwestern valley as part of a deal that included the introduction of Sharia law but will take their struggle’ to new areas, a militant spokesman said today.

“Sharia doesn’t permit us to lay down arms,” Muslim Khan said by telephone. “If a government, either in Pakistan or Afghanistan, continues anti-Muslim policies, it’s out of the question that Taliban lay down their arms.”

Pakistan’s President Asif Ali Zardari, under pressure from conservatives, signed a regulation on Monday imposing sharia law in the Swat valley to end Taliban violence.

The strategy of appeasement has alarmed US officials, while critics say the government has demonstrated a lack of capacity nd will to fight the Taliban and al Qaeda.

According to Dawn, details of the deal have not been made public but government officials backing the pact have said part of it as that militants would give up their arms.

But a Pakistani Taliban spokesman in the scenic valley, a one-time tourist destination 125 km northwest of Islamabad, said they would be keeping their guns.

He said “When we achieve our goal at one place, there are other areas where we need to struggle for it.”

Based on this, we can foresee the day when American Muslims can have guns for religious reasons, but other Americans can’t have them for legal reasons.

That, of course, will allow the IslamoFascists to help Homeland Security hunt down rightwing extremists.

Miss June casts a sultry look in her first centerfold photo session.

Let’s get something straight here. We hate the media. But some media we have more than others. In particular, we hate a new magazine called “Jihad Recollections.”

“Jihad Recollections” is published in Charlotte, North Carolina by Samir Khan. The magazine’s 70-pages are jampacked with same type of lunacy you might expect from the al Qaeda bad boys themselves.

The premiere issue offers links to al Qaeda-produced videos. It includes two English feature length articles by al Qaeda’s top dogs – “Four Practical Steps to Expand the Global Jihad” by Osama bin Laden and “Have We Forgotten Who Is America?” by Ayman al-Zawahiri and Nasir al-Fahd.

Want to see if for yourself? Download a PDF version here.

We wish Samir well. But things are tough in the publishing business these days. We think he needs to tweak his magazine a bit to make it appeal to the average al Qaeda member.

We can sum up our recommendation in one word: Centerfolds.

Obviously, we are publishing geniuses. Jann Wenner, give us a call. We have some ideas for Rolling Stone, too.

Some time back, a great commercial showed up on the internet. It was supposedly created by a South African ad agency to promote Honda’s hybrid.

We say supposedly because the commercial was so simple and so powerful and so controversial that it just seems doubtful that any major advertiser would have the guts to run it. Honda denies any involvement. So does the ad agency that is credited with having created it.

The commercial became an internet sensation. It got millions of views. Then an Islamic activist group got its panties in a wad and demanded that the commercial be pulled off the internet. YouTube caved in and pulled the commercial. It’s now very difficult to find online.

We love the commercial. So we got our hands on a copy, did a little editing, removed any reference to Honda, and put a new ending on it.

We think new version is more powerful than the original. And more timely, too.

If you enjoy it, please tell everyone you know to see it at IHateTheMedia.com.
