You may notice The Pink Flamingo has been quiet about Obama/NASA/Muslim Outreach. What is there to say?
“…In the 16th century, astronomer Taqī al-Dīn built one of the world’s great observatories in Istanbul. It rivaled that of the pioneering Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe — while it lasted. “Taqī al-Dīn’s observatory was razed to the ground by a squad of Janissaries, by order of the sultan, on the recommendation of the Chief Mufti,” Bernard Lewis writes in his book What Went Wrong? “This observatory had many predecessors in the lands of Islam; it had no successors until the age of modernization.”…”
This is one of those posts where The Pink Flamingo has been collecting headlines for maybe six weeks. When you scroll through it, you will see why.
Why can’t we admit they are trying to take over the US?
Go to a party with men, get 80 lashes with a whip? Sure, if you are a women in Saudi Arabia. If you are a Christian in an Islamic country, you may be sentenced to death. Or, if you are Christian in Dearborn, Michigan you could have a problem. If you are Jewish in Germany you can be stoned. If you are a woman in Iran, Allah help you! If you are in Turkey and wear a head-scarf, forget about employment.
The more devout a Muslim male is, the more likely he will be violent.
“…‘Shut up. Go back to Auschwitz.” That was the response from the “peace flotilla” when Israel broadcast a radio message warning the Turkish flotilla that it was about to enter an area under naval blockade. In another response, someone on board the “humanitarian aid convoy” replied: “We’re helping the Arabs go against the US. Don’t forget 9/11, guys.” After these exchanges, IDF commandos landed on the ships. On the Mavi Marmara they were attacked by pro-Palestinian activists wielding iron bars…”.
You can be murdered for watching the World Cup.
From the Daily Mail:
How much longer is the “civilized” world going to put a cheery spin on the vicious atrocities committed in the name of Allah? How much longer do we coddle a vile and reprehensible primitive culture in the name of political correctness? How much longer is the world going to blame the Jews for every little wrong. Is their ignorance or bigotry or abject cultural stupidity?
“…The notion – uncritically swallowed by the lazy, ignorant and bigoted BBC and other western media – that the flotilla organisers are ‘peace activists’ is simply ludicrous. This research by the Danish Institute for International Studies details the part played by the IHH in Islamist terror in Afghanistan, Bosnia and Chechnya. According to the French magistrate Jean-Louis Bruguiere testifying at the Seattle trial of would-be al Qaeda Millenium bomber Ahmed Ressamin, the IHH had played ‘[a]n important role’ in the al Qaeda Millenium bomb plot targeting Los Angeles airport. It was also involved in weapons trafficking, and played in addition a key role in galvanizing anti-Western sentiment among Turkish Muslims in the lead-up to the 2003 war in Iraq. ‘Peace activists’ these people most certainly are not….”
(Have you ever wondered how many people have died because of political correctness)?
How much longer are we going to put up with the anti-Semitic racism of Ron Paul? (H/T Sally Vee)
There is a difference between right and wrong, basic human decency. Unfortunately we are living in a world upside down where the bullies are winning. There is a very good reason for this. People do not have the courage to stand up and say these people are evil.
When is enough enough?
When do we admit that liberals and many Democrats do not like Jews? How long will it take for the Obama Administration to jump on the Islamic promoted band-wagon and condemn Israel? What will you do when it happens?
Must we wait until these barbarians are on our shores, demanding we wear burkas and force our thirteen year old little girls into marriages with pedophiles? When does society put a stop to this behavior?
“…The case of Khadija Rasoul, 13, and Basgol Sakhi, 14, from the village of Gardan-i-Top, in the Dulina district of Ghor province, central Afghanistan, was notable for the failure of the authorities to do anything to protect the girls. Although Herat has shelters for battered and runaway women and girls, the police contacted the former warlord, Fazil Ahad Khan, whom Human Rights Commission workers describe as the self-appointed commander and morals enforcer in his district in Ghor province, and returned the girls to his custody. After a kangaroo court run by Khan and local religious leaders, according to the commission’s report on the episode, the girls were sentenced to 40 lashes each and flogged. The Human Rights Commission took the tapes to the governor of Ghor province, Sayed Iqbal Munib, who formed a commission to investigate the incident but took no action, saying the district was too insecure to send police there…”.
Why are the terrorists allowed to literally get away with murder but when a nation attempts to defend itself, they are the evil ones?
“…There was footage of one of the “activists” stabbing a soldier, of a petrol bomb being thrown at the troops, a stun grenade. And the troops themselves reported being sprayed with tear gas, attacked with iron bars, knives and sticks, and of efforts, reportedly successful in at least one case, to grab the pistols some were also carrying. There were reports of gunfire directed at the troops, and of soldiers jumping into the sea to escape attack. Soldiers were fighting for their lives, said the IDF spokesman, Avi Benayahu (in Hebrew). “It was a lynch. It was an ambush.” The navy chief, Eliezer Marom, told an early afternoon press conference that the resulting toll of the dead and injured could have been “much worse,” that the confrontation could have ended even more unhappily….”
Pardon me while I do not mourn the loss of someone who was among the dead on the infamous Gaza Flotilla.
“...The facts are not entirely clear, but it appears that Dogan was born in the United States to Turkish parents who returned to Turkey not long thereafter. (The ABC story says he was two years old.) Apparently Dogan had lived in Turkey with his family since that time. He apparently was, in other words, a “birthright citizen,” solely by virtue of the fact that his parents were residing in the U.S. when he was born.
If that is the case–and, again, the facts are not yet entirely clear–it is silly to call him an “American of Turkish descent.” He, like the other members of his family, was a Turk. The idea that his presence among the dead raises a special diplomatic problem is absurd; if it does, it shouldn’t….”
Then there is the constant abuse of women:
“…Yazmin is now utterly dependent upon the “kindness of strangers.” For awhile, Yazmin lived in a shelter for battered Bahraini women; she is now temporarily living with a Good Samaritan. She has no resources. Her ex-husband is demanding more and more time with the daughter whom he himself had abandoned years ago. In fact, he wants his new wife and perhaps also his mother to take over as Fatima’s “mothers.” He has employed lawyers (Yazmin can’t afford one) to argue his case in a Bahraini court of law where, as a man and a father, the law is on his side.
He would like Yazmin to leave Bahrain — and to leave Fatima behind. As I see it, here is the question: Can an American citizen be forced to live under Sharia law? Can young Fatima be forced to grow up as an Arab Muslim in the Middle East as opposed to as an American in the United States?
Arizona Senator John McCain, Yazmin’s senator, wrote to Bahrain’s Ambassador to the United States, Houda Ezra Ebrahim Nonoo, and urged her (the Bahrainin Ambassador is both a woman and a Jew) to “help expeditiously resolve this matter and allow Ms. Bautista and her daughter to return home peacefully…(since) Ms. Bautista obtained sole custody of Fatima in the Superior Court of Arizona in the United States.”
I turned my sources and the story over to Fox News in the belief that they could report it as a breaking news item and attract far more attention than I could at my own beloved blog. They put a very good reporter (Josh Rhett Miller) on it and he posted his story the next day. Fox asked me to write two opinion editorials which I did….”
