Getting an 8yo girl to call for Jihad and Sharia probably isn’t exactly what Australia needs right now


Via Larry Pickering, the irresponsibility of some people is astounding and quite worrisome.

“Out of the mouths of babes…”

Having and 8yo call for global Jihad and the introduction of a pan-Islamic Caliphate upon all people’s of Earth is hardly the kind of talk we need in free(ish), democratic Australia. And yet this is exactly what happened in Bankstown, west of Sydney, recently.

One can’t help but worry the kind of sick indoctrination of innocent children to harbour views of “glorious” mass murder, as seen here happening in the Palestinian territories, is a cancer slowly spreading in Australia also.

And there’s more, this time via Michael Smith. A reader writes:

Thank you [Michael] for making us aware of the conference. We sat and watched, listened, to the call to arms by what I think is a terrorist organisation, a cult. The second last speaker called on all Muslim Australians to “throw the Australian Constitution in the bin”. He said from now on they (Muslim’s) should only recognise Sharia Law.

Meanwhile, I’m trying, really trying, to feel reassured (and the Islamic Council of Victoria deserves some credit on this one).

Mr Dandan said those people directly involved in Saturday’s running battles with police were “freelancers” – young, disaffected men allied to mosques and teaching centres outside the mainstream Muslim community.

“They are individuals who freelance from one place to another. If they are not being engaged they move on to another place. We haven’t engaged with these people and we need to,” Mr Dandan said.

“It’s our shortcoming. We have not really engaged with these individuals. It’s not about handing these people over to the authorities; that might drive them underground.

See? First you hear about actions such as the Sydney riots and little girls being used to spread a call for genocide being condemned by Muslim leaders, but then there’s that last line from the quote above. I’m sorry, but in Australia, if you know who the person is who is inciting race riots, using hate speech, indeed calling for the mass murder of others, then surely isn’t that something that you should be helping the police out with?

I’m no lawyer, but we do have laws addressing that kind of stuff, right (even if the cops sometimes choose not to use them such as after the disgraceful Australia Day race riot incited by one of PM Gillard’s staffers in an attempt to demonise Opposition Leader Tony Abbott [incidentally a strategy - the only strategy - Labor has been using for months, if not years])?

And I’m a little disappointed we read an investigation is being called for by Muslim leaders… into the police’s actions over the weekend. That’s hardly confidence inspiring.

Also disappointing is that if one has a look on Facebook and other Internet forums, it too often quickly descends yet again, somehow, into a slanging match between Leftists and Rightists. To be sure, there are plenty of issues the Left and the Right can fire shots at each other over; I’m just really disappointed that the riots occurring around the world and on home soil, too, is one of them. How is this a Left/Right issue?

Can everyone calm down, please? You’d hope so, and hope Muslims who adopted Australia as their new home stop listening to those hate preachers from the lands they desperately tried to escape from (it was an “escape”, right?).

And the winner of Sunday’s Internets is…


(And I’m pleasantly surprised)… The Islamic Council of Victoria.

After the shameful riots we witnessed in Sydney over the weekend, the ICV has come out strongly condemning them with the added warning not to bring them to Melbourne.

“The ICV is appalled by the riots in Sydney,” spokeswoman Shereen Hassan said.

“While it is abhorrent that individuals should disrespect Prophet Mohammed, it is even more abhorrent that Muslims should defile his peaceful teachings by acting in such a vile manner.

“Inflammatory films or provocative actions such as burning the Koran are … activities by bigots who are the fringe of society. They do not represent the feelings of (most) … non-Muslims towards Muslims.

“These people are best ignored or their offensive and inaccurate ideas countered by rational and factual ones expressed in a peaceful manner, as encouraged by our religion.”

Good stuff, and it certainly beats the bloke holding a sign stating, “Behead those who insult Islam”. I mean, really. Is that really a good look? Did the enraged man holding that sign think Australians and others around the world would look at that and think, “Oh well, maybe Islam isn’t so bad after all”?

Anyway, I hope it all settles down soon. For an entire region of the planet – northern Africa and the middle east – and now Sydney to burst into riotous behavior all over a lame movie that some obscure attention seeker produced is a bit of an overreaction.

Sensitive thugs


Sensitive lot, aren’t they, over in northern Africa and the Middle East?

Turn on, say, CNN, and we’re witnessed to violent, inflamed protests in Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Sudan, Iran, Iraq, the Kashmir region, Yemen, Morocco, and Israel and the Palestinian territories.

And why? Well the catalyst for the protests which – no coincidence, surely – began on September 11, are over a crappy, low budget film depicting Mohammed as a thug and pedophile. Most of us would have happily lived out our lives having not the slightest inkling this film ever existed, except that an Egyptian sheik got wind of it, translated the YouTube trailer in to Arabic and, let’s face it, used it to light a fire under the ever-simmering hatred of the West, and the US in particular as the bastion of the West.

The film was ordinary to say the least, but that’s the price you pay for freedom, and in particular, freedom of speech – a cornerstone of free democratic nations (which incidentally, the Left in Australia has managed to dig up). I’d much rather have freedom and be offended once in a while than to live in a country where even freedom of thought is blasphemy, indeed punishable by death.

What we also know – or think we know – is that the bloke who made the film is one Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, FKA Sam Becile; technically a Coptic Christian (they make up around 10% of Egypt’s population), but as information comes to light, it turns out he’s a pretty shady guy with multiple names and social security numbers, has been convicted for narcotics offenses as well as bank fraud.

So basically, he’s a troll – not someone to be liked.

However, what I also don’t like is all the finger-pointing that has gone on “back home”. TBH, I’m not really that proud of my “Bye, Libya” post below (although a number of US lawmakers, both Democrat and Republicans, have called for a washing of hands also). But what really disgusts me is that whilst corpses have been paraded around the streets, and the senseless violence is ongoing, the Left have used this as an opportunity to attack US presidential candidate, Mitt Romney.

Now, for sure, the Right have also used this to attack sitting Democrat President Barrack Obama.

Yet, there is one key difference, it must be pointed out, that does not make what’s good for the goose good for the gander.

Romney has no actual political power, and in no way has been involved in any type of US government decision making when it comes to things such as an effective, appropriate response, coordination with the State Department, and security conditions on the ground which may have at least saved a few important lives.

The opposite is true for Obama. Geneva convention or not (the host country provides most security at embassies and consulates), the situation being what it was leading up to those abhorrent attacks, the Obama administration should have had proper security forces in place.

It did not.

And talk about gaffes in rhetoric – and the Left has been quick to jump on a perceived yet actually non-existent gaffe in Romney’s rhetoric – Obama comes out and says Egypt is neither enemy nor ally; a gaffe which the State Department had to correct and reiterate that Egypt, er, technically is an ally, in the legal definition of the word.

Not that Obama is being punished in the media for that massive faux pas

Double standards? Remember when Obama recently and most irresponsibly inflamed home grown violence by declaring that if he had a son, his name would be Trayvon Martin?

Still, that’s hardly the first example of collective, selective, faux leftist outrage.

But I digress, and fall into the same trap I’m blaming leftists for also doing.

The real bad guy here isn’t Obama. Nor is it Romney. Nor is it that film maker, not in a country that upholds freedom of speech, however offensive.

No, the real bad guys are those thugs who murdered the US Libyan ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens and three others including two former Navy Seals.

The real bad guys are those thugs staging their violent protests all over the middle east and northern Africa.

The real bad guys are people like that sheik who found that obscure video and used it to incite an entire nation, indeed regions, to hatred and violence.

The real bad guys are the ruling Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt who have called for a banning of Freedom of Speech in the West, and who have also called for *cough* peaceful protests this Friday, Islamic prayer day.

While emotions are still running high, can we in the West, on the Left and the Right, please remember who the real bad guys are (hint: it’s not each other).

Goodbye, Libya


Not a chance, Libya, so long as I live. Never will I look on your people, nor country in any way favourably.

To do that, to the American ambassador. Never forget. Never forgive. And I’m quite aware of the date.

All over a movie?

I am done with trying to understand these “people”.

UPDATE

Yeah, well…

More

That said…

Source

And the embassy had no Marine protection. What kind of a president would allow that to happen?

UPDATE

It’s funny coz it’s true…

UPDATE

The writing had been on the wall for months – around a year and a half – and yet Hillary Clinton, Secretary of State for the Obama administration expresses surprise.

Pathetic.

And again, the question begs: why didn’t that Embassy have Marine protection??? This is as much an indictment on the Obama administration as it is on Islamic terrorism (19,592 deadly Islamic terrorist attacks since 9/11 and counting JFTR…)

UPDATE

Have a squiz around the internet and we know that shitty video was made by some anonymous charlatan. We know the violence didn’t happen until after it was found, translated, and “promoted” by some Egyptian sheik. We know abhorrent violence has been ignited in Egypt, Libya, Yemen, and Iran.

So what can we deduce from this?

Simple. Those guys over there really hate our guts. Essentially, the Islamic world hates the West.

How can any form of appeasement or compromise possibly work when all it takes is a crap video, and our guys get their corpses paraded around the streets?

9/11: remembering the fallen


It was eleven years ago, and also on a Tuesday. Sympathies to the fallen and their families.

Always remember.

Watched a decent documentary today on History (channel), 9/11: the days after. Very touching, very moving.

Afghanistan: an end in sight?


I don’t buy into the claim that the war in Afghanistan was illegal, immoral or that it wasn’t worth going in there and kicking some Taliban butt.

That said, we’re not really getting anywhere, are we? Thus, the following is probably the best course of action.

THE US and Afghan governments have begun secret* three-way talks with the Taliban, Afghan President Hamid Karzai told The Wall Street Journal, disclosing an important breakthrough in efforts to end the 10-year war.

Mr Karzai, whose government had protested being left out of recent talks between Washington and the insurgents, added he believes most Taliban are “definitively” interested in a peace settlement.

Now an assertation by Karzai doesn’t exactly carry much weight IMO, but let’s hope he’s right on this occaision. It looks like this report out of the Pentagon backs what Karzai is saying.

The Pentagon on Wednesday offered new details of its plan for shifting from a combat mission in Afghanistan to one focused on training and advising Afghan forces as they gradually shoulder more of the combat burden.

The Army identified five U.S.-based brigades, as well as an Army Reserve organization, that will be reconfigured and sent to Afghanistan between April and August to “generate, employ and sustain” Afghan forces.

The Army called this a “new mission” after more than 10 years of fighting in Afghanistan.

And there’s this interesting and hopefully positive development, as well.

Karzai’s comments came as he prepared to meet the leaders of neighbouring Pakistan and Iran in Islamabad on Thursday for a summit set to focus on security issues, including the Taliban insurgency and support for it from within Pakistan. He did not give any further details about the contacts.

Now I’m no military strategist hotshot, but I really don’t think the West has to worry too much about Taliban strikes on our home soil or Iran cutting off its oil supplies if the US/NATO has a less active role in the region. Iran needs the money and/or gold more than ever thanks to sanctions; gold which they’re reportedly using to by grain (from Australia no less) and which others are reportedly using to buy Iranian oil.

*BTW, the talks aren’t really “secret” are they when word of them is splashed across the WSJ and the Australian.

Why the desire to pull the troops out of Iraq in the first place?


In the Australian today:

NO sooner did President Barack Obama welcome home American troops from Iraq and laud that country’s stability and democracy than an unprecedented wave of violence across Baghdad and elsewhere revealed the severity of Iraq’s political crisis.

Unfortunate, yet hardly surprising, even to the most casual of observers.

And whilst I can understand (yet not agree with) the Left’s position not to send troops into Iraq in the first place – an argument, largely moot, for another day – what I don’t understand is their fervish desire to pull the troops out.

It always smacked of idealism, ideology, rather than hard-nosed practicality.

After all, what was so bad with having a US troop presence there to help maintain Iraq’s fragile democratic stability?

One could argue that I am biased because a) I am centre-right politically and b) because I live in South Korea, a nation that has had a US troop presence – some 37,000 28,000 or so currently – since the armistice between North and South Korea and have seen what a permanent US troop presence looks like.

I am happy to accept those labels and can gladly tell you that such a presence ain’t that bad.

By and large,  US bases in Korea – and Japan for that matter – haven’t been a problem.

Sure, issues pop up from time to time, but if one looks at the big picture, then a strong US presence here can only be seen as a good thing, a safe option, a pretty darn good insurance policy against North Korea trying anything major on.

Almost 60 years we’ve had US troops over here without any major problems. In fact, many major problems (a full-scale Nork attack comes to mind) have arguably been averted thanks to this presence.

So, why the rush to leave Iraq essentially free of any US military  before even a decade is up and before, as is clear now, the job is done?

OK, so perhaps it’s a bit like comparing apples and oranges. US troops in Korea, aside from those stationed at the DMZ, aren’t on active duty as they were in Iraq.

However, it’s not a completely dissimilar situation. Perhaps a good analogy would be to compare mandarins and oranges.

US troops not only provided safety and stability in the fledgling democracy that is Iraq – a country still steeped with sectarian and tribal rivalries – but surely they also provided a deterrence to anybody or any groups who want to destabilise the nation.

What takes years to build can take mere seconds to destroy, and I fear a lot of hard work is being undone on the whim of a flawed, feel-good, ideology.

So why?

The only practical reason that I can see for Obama pulling his troops out of Iraq is that with an Iranian confrontation looming which includes action needed in Syria, Iraq frankly isn’t important enough any more or at best, an impractical option for a potentially over-stretched military.

Of course, Obama – a man of the progressive Left – can’t actually come out and say that but it is reasonably well-known to those who don’t just get their news from the MSM that Obama is actually more of a war-time president than Bush was, having committed more troops to both Iraq and Afghanistan, and for a longer period of time.

So whilst the MSM might play along with the “bringing the troops home” narrative, the evidence indicates this simply isn’t the case.

Some 20,000 marines, seamen and air crews from half a dozen countries, a US nuclear aircraft carrier strike group and three US Marine gunship carriers are practicing an attack on a fictitious mechanized enemy division which has invaded its neighbor. It is the largest amphibian exercise seen in the West for a decade, staged to simulate a potential Iranian invasion of an allied Persian Gulf country and a marine landing on the Iranian coast. Based largely on US personnel and hardware, French, British, Italian, Dutch, Australian* and New Zealand military elements are integrated in the drill.
Bold Alligator went into its operational phase Monday, Feb. 6, the same day as a large-scale exercise began in southern Iran opposite the Strait of Hormuz. This simultaneity attests to the preparations for a US-Iranian showdown involving Israel behind the words on Feb. 5 of US President Barack Obama (“I don’t think Israel has decided whether to attack Iran”) and Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Feb. 3 (“The war itself will be ten times as detrimental to the US.”).

(*BTW, I don’t recall Aussie PM Gillard highlighting that one.)

And this:

As the US and Israel carried on bickering over the right time to strike Iran’s nuclear sites, their war preparations continued apace. debkafile’s military sources report that flight after flight of US warplanes and transports were to be seen this week cutting eastward through the skies of Sinai on their way to Gulf destinations, presumably Saudi Arabia, at a frequency not seen in the Middle East for many years.

Add into this mix reports that China will reportedly help Saudi Arabia build a nuclear bomb, and that both China and India have started paying Iran for its oil in gold thus helping thwart current US/UN sanctions (more of which were recently thwarted by Russia and China), then we see a stage set for a showdown and we see the reality that rhetoric aside, Obama won’t be bringing many troops home at all.

To someone who doesn’t know any better, it’s as if Russia, India, and China – all wannabe first chickens to the trough – are ganging up on America.**

PS Who wouldn’t love to be a fly on the wall listening in to what the US is really saying about China? Their ever-expanding use of soft power is in many ways, stuffing it all up for America. China must surely be becoming an ever-increasing pain in the neck.

This leaves Australia in an interesting position. Our main export partner is China. Our main ally is the US. We send China our goodies to help them get rich and rival America. We practice shooting our guns with America to help keep America on top.

And yet China and America are also so deep in each other’s pockets. America buys China’s goods. China buys America’s debt.

Fun times.

** I highly recommend reading The Lucifer Principle by Howard Bloom. Part of the book talks about the pecking order of nations.

Will Israel strike Iran in April?


Possibly.

US Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has been outspoken about a possible Israeli offensive against Iran taking place as of April and one American TV channel theorized simplistically Friday, Feb. 3, about Israel’s tactics. At the same time, no US source is leveling on the far more extensive American, Saudi, British, French and Gulf states’ preparations going forward for an offensive against the Islamic Republic.

Tehran too is gearing up for conflict: The Iranian Guards Ground Forces chief Brig. Gen. Mohammad Pakpour Saturday, Feb. 4 announced the start of a three-week exercise in southern Iran and the Strait of Hormuz under conditions of war. debkafile: The “exercise” is in fact an Iranian military buildup ahead of a possible American or Israel attack.

debkafile’s military sources report a steady flow of many thousands of US troops for some weeks to two strategic islands within reach of Iran, Oman’s Masirah just south of the Strait of Hormuz and Socotra, between Yemen and the Horn of Africa.

Read on.

It appears the UN isn’t all that interested.

Watching CNN this morning, it seems Obama isn’t interested in a military strike at the moment, but the former US ambassador to Iran did indicate there are various other efforts still available, including further sanctions on Iran’s central bank.

And via JM Heinrichs, some lessons on Iran by David P. Goldman.

Will sanctions persuade Iran to stop building nuclear weapons? No such question can be answered with finality, but it is more likely that the Obama administration’s graduated sanctions will accelerate Tehran’s efforts to acquire nuclear weapons. The Obama administration, according to news accounts, is aghast that Israel might take preemptive action rather than give sanctions time to work. Sanctions, though, are more likely to prompt Iran to stake everything on the nuclear card. The last time the West dealt with a similar case, the prospect of economic collapse and the fear of regime change motivated the outbreak of World War II.

Iran is planning to double its defense budget even though its currency is collapsing. These are related events: in the medium term, the free-fall of Iran’s rial constitutes a transfer of wealth to the government from what remains of Iran’s private sector. As the Washington Post reported yesterday, “The government, which receives oil revenue mostly in dollars and euros, is profiting from the rial’s decline, analysts said. ‘Their income is in dollars, so a strong dollar helps them to buy more rials to pay their bills,’ said one prominent economist, who asked not to be identified, for fear of reprisals.” At least for the time being, sanctions strengthen the relative position of the regime, while undermining its long-term staying power — unless, of course, Tehran begins a new set of regional wars under a nuclear umbrella.

@Blazing Cat Fur

Frankly, I see Obama forcing Israel into a tight spot.

UPDATE

Is Obama so reluctant to get involved military with Iran because, despite the narrative, it’s actually going abyssmally in Afghanistan?

From the keyboard of a Lt. Col. who was on the ground:

What I saw bore no resemblance to rosy official statements by U.S. military leaders about conditions on the ground.

Entering this deployment, I was sincerely hoping to learn that the claims were true: that conditions in Afghanistan were improving, that the local government and military were progressing toward self-sufficiency. I did not need to witness dramatic improvements to be reassured, but merely hoped to see evidence of positive trends, to see companies or battalions produce even minimal but sustainable progress.

Instead, I witnessed the absence of success on virtually every level.

A look into the Mexican drug cartels

After 10 long years, the US military and the Taliban are fighting it out…

Enemies within


Three would-be Islamic terrorists have been sentenced to a maximum 18 years jail for plotting to attack a Sydney army base.

  • Trio jailed over army base attack plot
  • Men “planned a horrific and evil attack”
  • Trio remained defiant as they were sentenced
Charming.
What is also striking is that the gallery was packed with friends, family and supporters.
It’s not a case of “if” Australia will have an Islamic terrorist attack but “when”.

In secretly recorded conversations, the plotters, all of whom attended inner city mosques, talked of their contempt for Australians and their plans to take out “five, six, eight or 10” soldiers.

Fattal was recorded saying:”If I find a way to kill the army, I’m gonna do it.”

Luckily, Fattal wasn’t fatal.

“no accident”


The middle east is a volatile enough region as it is. What an even bigger headache it would be if Iran ever fully realises their nuclear weapon capabilities.

AN IRANIAN nuclear facility has been hit by a huge explosion, the second such blast in a month, prompting speculation that Tehran’s military and atomic sites are under attack.

Satellite imagery seen by The Times confirmed that a blast that rocked the city of Isfahan on Monday struck the uranium enrichment facility there, despite denials by Tehran.

The images clearly showed billowing smoke and destruction, negating Iranian claims yesterday that no such explosion had taken place. Israeli intelligence officials told The Times that there was “no doubt” that the blast struck the nuclear facilities at Isfahan and that it was “no accident”.

Indeed; turning the screws.

And some of the fallout from the new sanctions imposed on Iran?

Britain has evacuated all its diplomatic staff from Iran, Western diplomatic sources told Reuters on Wednesday, a day after protesters stormed and ransacked its embassy and a residential compound.

UPDATE (via JM)

A decent look into what could happen to oil prices – various scenarios – in the event of a war with Iran.

Memo to China: Pakistan fired first


So China’s main state-controlled newspaper The People’s Daily comes out blasting the US for the death of 24 Pakistani soldiers the other day.

An influential state-run Chinese newspaper has accused the United States of violating international law and fanning the flames of terrorism after NATO strikes killed 24 Pakistani soldiers.

The strongly-worded editorial, which was published on Tuesday in the People’s Daily – mouthpiece of China’s ruling Communist party – came after Beijing said it was “deeply shocked” by the strikes, which have exacerbated tensions between Islamabad and Washington.

“The United States and NATO have violated international law and international norms,” the paper said in an editorial condemning the attacks.

“This shows… that at crucial moments, the United States will not show the slightest hesitation to violate the sovereignty of another nation to ensure its ‘absolute security’.”

And on and on it went without the slightest hint of irony (irony considering China sells missile technology to Iran which in turn gives the missiles to terrorist groups such as Hizbollah).

Nice going on the War on Terror there, China.

And besides, it’s likely that the US did not instigate the bungled attack.

Both sides said they believed they were attacking insurgents along the border. A senior Pakistani defense official acknowledged that Pakistani troops fired first, sending a flare, followed by mortar and machine-gun fire, toward what he said was “suspicious activity” in the brush-covered area below their high-altitude outpost barely 500 yards from the border.

And before Pakistan gets its burqa in a knot, it would do well to remember the US is an ally – an ally to the tune of around two billion bucks a year. And that will be $3 billion next year.

And what does the US get in return apart from bleeting demands for an apology?

US senator John McCain:

“Pakistan’s intelligence agency continues to support the Haqqani network and other terrorist groups that are killing US and Afghan forces in Afghanistan, and the vast majority of the material used to make improvised explosive devices originates from two fertilizer factories in Pakistan.”

Charming. And remember it was this ally that let China have a look at the downed SEAL Team 6 helicopter.

Oh, yeah. Thaaaaat helicopter; you know, the one that was used to get the world’s most wanted man, Osama bin Laden, who had been “hiding out” in a compound just outside Pakistan’s capital for about 10 long years.

All told?

China and Pakistan need to STFU.

UPDATE

More on the strained US-Pakistan relationship. The alternative is worse.

Terrorist suspects freed


Their NSW counterparts are serving 23-28 years, but in Victoria, two terrorist suspects walk the streets.

Aimen Joud and Ahmed Raad

TWO Muslim extremists who were accused of plotting a deadly terrorist attack are back on Melbourne’s streets after being freed last week.

Police fear Aimen Joud and Ahmed Raad still pose a threat, as there is no sign their anti-Western beliefs changed in prison.

“Their radical and extreme views remain a concern,” one investigating officer said yesterday.

“While local police will be aware of where they are living, and will keep an eye on them when they can, there is not the manpower to do it constantly.”

It’s for your, er, safety


We’re talking the US government’s latest update to its “safety” device, the Emergency Alert System, or EAS.

The goal of the new-and-improved EAS is (er, in the case of an emergency) to give government the ability to broadcast over almost ALL mediums; radio and television (broadcast, cable and satellite).

They did a largely-failed test today, but rest assurred, they’re working on it.

Gee, government will soon be able to broadcast its own message over all TV and radio.

What could possibly go wrong?

And what a volatile week it’s turning out to be: an unmandated carbon tax in Australia that will send billions unnecessarily overseas coupled with a media inquiry that smacks of government wanting to control the free press, talks of nuclear war and/or strikes in the middle east, the eurozone collapsing, the OWS protests (especially when you look at the various groups that support OWS)…

Hmmm.

PS

Ha! Just TV and radio? Well, they’re working on the rest.

Look, I can see the benevolent uses this EAS might have, but it smacks waaaay too much of 1984.

Seriously, if the emergency is that bad that every single American everywhere in America needs to know about it instantly, then my guess is that you’re probably f*cked anyway.
